It is a falsehood to say that Israel is an apartheid state. This indictment, made by Mahmoud Abbas repeatedly in his speeches, is an Orwellian distortion of the truth, but it has been extremely effective in the public relations war of words that plays out in the United Nations, on the international stage, in the media, and on college campuses every day.
This is a grave and toxic travesty that needs to be made right. In light of the "Arab Spring" spreading seeds of sharia law throughout the Middle East, Western civilization needs to see the truth. Americans are being hijacked by propaganda against Israel...and not defending Israel's right to be a Jewish state will lead to our own eventual downfall.
The analogy of Israel to South African apartheid commands a response. Because of its catchy, slick word combination and its connotations that evoke vivid images of human unfairness and suffering, it has became a fashionable narrative for the media and international community's discourse. But it is not factual, and it is very deceptive.
Labeling Israel "apartheid" is meant to provoke worldwide criticism and elicit human rights-based anger that sanctions demonstrations, boycotts, and the denigration of Jewish morals. This finger-pointing is an intentional attack on Israel. It condones terror in the guise of "freedom-fighters," encourages prosecution of Israeli officials in foreign courts, promotes laws against Israeli goods, and supports boycotts of stores selling Israeli products. It sees the advantage of kidnapping soldiers, allows the destruction of Jewish artifacts and religious sites, and tries to exclude Jews from their legitimate claim to their historic homeland.
Factually speaking, apartheid was the policy of the South African government as a way of dealing with the white and non-white social, political and economic issues up until 1992. It was the official policy that established and maintained racial segregation and racial discrimination. The South African non-whites could not vote, and they had to carry a "Pass Book," or they risked being jailed or deported. By contrast, all citizens of Israel have equal voting rights. Arabs have eleven representatives in Israel's Knesset, including an Arab on the Israeli Supreme Court. Every citizen must carry an identity card, along with all legal residents.
In addition, non-white South Africans were kept from a wide range of jobs. They had no free elementary through high school education; mixed sexual relationships were restricted and segregated; hospital and ambulance services were segregated; they could not use most public amenities; sports were segregated; and public facilities were labeled for correct racial usage. Non-whites could not enter a building through the main entrance, be a member of a union, or participate in a strike. That is apartheid, and Israel is not an apartheid state.
Although many pro-Palestinian organizations are aware that the Israel-apartheid analogy is inaccurate, this rhetoric is continually used to condemn and isolate Israel. Just visit Israel to see the truth...Israeli Arabs shopping at Jerusalem's Mamila Mall, enjoying Tel Aviv beaches, enrolled in the universities, getting hospital care, going on school trips to the zoos, and having free access to public places.
One of the more outspoken defenders of Israel is Benjamin Pogrund, a Jew born in Cape Town, now living in Israel. Pogrund lived under apartheid, and as an anti-apartheid activist, he took grave risks by reporting the injustices against blacks. He often comments that the comparison of Israel to South African apartheid "greatly minimizes the oppression and misery caused by apartheid and is debasing to its victims."
In his rebuttal, Pogrund argues that "Israel is not unique in declaring itself a state for a specific people."
Everyone knows thatEgypt is for Egyptians, Ireland is for Irishmen, France for Frenchmen, Italy is for Italians, Serbia for Serbs, China for the Chinese, Iran for the Persians...and the list goes on.
"Apartheid"-supporters substantiate their stance by claiming that Israel discriminates against Israeli Arabs by barring them from buying land.
The facts regarding land ownership are clarified by Mitchell Bard, the executive director of the non-profit American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE) and a foreign policy analyst who frequently lectures on U.S.-ME policy:
In the early part of the century, the Jewish National Fund was established by the World Zionist Congress to purchase land in Palestine for Jewish settlement. This land, and that acquired after Israel's War of Independence, was taken over by the government. Of the total area of Israel, 92% belongs to the State and is managed by the Land Management Authority. It is not for sale to anyone, Jew or Arab. The remaining 8% of the territory is privately owned. The Arab Waqf (the Muslim charitable endowment), for example, owns land that is for the express use and benefit of Muslim Arabs. Government land can be leased by anyone, regardless of race, religion or sex. All Arab citizens of Israel are eligible to lease government land.
The reality is that both Arabs and Jews build homes illegally throughout Israel. And the fact is that the number of illegal Arab homes scheduled for demolition is miniscule compared to Jewish homes that must adhere scrupulously to the rules for fear of condemnation. (Please check Bard's point-by-point rebuttal.)
The problems in Israel's Arab communities are much like conditions others face in various places in the world, but Arabs don't point a finger at those places. Only Israel is labeled and attacked as "apartheid." Arabs need only to look at their neighboring countries in the Middle East to find real apartheid. Does anyone honestly believe that Muslim women do not suffer from apartheid in countries with sharia law? Or that Christians and Jews in some Arab nations are being attacked and killed purely because of their religion? More pointedly, both Jordan and Saudi Arabia do not allow Jews to live there, and Saudi Arabia doesn't even let Jews visit.
There are many "no-class" citizens in the world that Arabs don't care to talk about. One must believe that Abbas just doesn't recognize "apartheid" as he declares that the State of Palestine will be "Judenrein" -- a Jewish-free state. Instead, the label of "apartheid" is stuck on Israel, keeping eyes focused away from the intolerance and bigotry that the PLO and Hamas preach.
Recently, I took issue with "Students for Justice in Palestine" (SJP), an on-campus pro-Palestinian organization that orchestrated the first National Anti-Israel Conference at Columbia University to "educate" students for participation in "Israel Apartheid Week 2012" on university campuses.
The SJP supports the Apartheid Movement, the Gaza Freedom Movement that tried to break the Israeli-Egyptian blockade, the BDS movement against Israeli goods, and a One-State Solution with the "Right of Return." There can be no doubt that SJP, hiding behind the veil of human rights activism, supports the end of a Jewish state while "freedom-fighting" terrorists try to accomplish the same goal through violence.
One question needs to be asked of all those who accuse Israel of being an apartheid state: if Israel gave up all the land rights, forfeited all of the natural resources, and agreed to a One-State Solution with the "Right of Return," would the Jews be able to live in peaceful coexistence with their Arab neighbors? The answer to this question determines the fate of the Jewish people and whether peace is ever attainable.
The real racism: Expecting Jews to die meekly [JPost]
The real racism: Expecting Jews to die meekly
By MARTIN SHERMAN 10/27/2011 23:00
Into the Fray: Israel needs to once again convey, unapologetically, to the world the rationale for its founding.
The most accurate way to describe Israel today is as an apartheid state... 3.5 million Palestinians and almost half a million Jews live in the areas Israel occupied in 1967, and yet while these two groups live in the same area, they are subjected to totally different legal systems. The Palestinians are stateless and lack many of the most basic human rights. – Neve Gordon, “Boycott Israel,” Los Angeles Times, August 20, 2009.
Taken from an article by a senior Israeli academic, this excerpt typifies the racist Judeophobic rhetoric that has come to dominate the public discourse on the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.
Sadly it is rhetoric that has been endorsed by many in the Israeli academia and media. Even more disturbing is the complicity — or at least complacency — of Israeli officialdom in allowing it to become the defining feature of this discourse.
Expecting Jews to die meekly
This mode of rhetoric is no less than inciteful, Judeophobic racism, because in effect, it embodies the implicit delegitmization of the right of Jews to defend themselves.
It embodies the implicit expectation that Jews should consent to die meekly. And how can an expectation that Jews die meekly be characterized other than as “inciteful, Judeophobic racism?” For no matter what the measures Israel adopts to protect its citizens from those undisguisedly trying to murder and maim them — because they are Jews — they are widely condemned as “racist,” “disproportionate violence” or even “war crimes/crimes against humanity.”
It matters not whether these measures are administrative decisions or security operations, defensive responses or anticipatory initiatives, punitive retaliations or preemptive strikes. It matters not whether they entail the emplacement of physical barriers to block the infiltration of indiscriminate murderers; the imposition of restrictions to impede their lethal movements; the execution of preventive arrests to foil their deadly intentions; the conduct of targeted killings (with unprecedentedly low levels of collateral damage) to preempt their brutal plans; the launch of military campaigns to prevent the incessant shelling of civilians...
Lip service to Israel’s right to self-defense
The depiction of these measures as arbitrary acts of wrongdoing, whose only motivation is racially driven territorial avarice and discriminatory embitterment of the lives of the Palestinians, distorts reality and disregards context. But far more perturbing, is the moral implication of this condemnation.
For if all endeavors to prevent, protect or preempt are denounced as morally reprehensible, the inevitable conclusion is that they should not be employed. This implies a no less inevitable conclusion: To avoid the morally reprehensible, the Jewish state should — in effect — allow those who would attack its citizens, to do so with total impunity, and with total immunity from retribution.
True, many of Israel’s detractors protest with righteous indignation that they acknowledge that it “has a right to defend itself.” But this is quickly exposed as meaningless lip service, for whenever Israel exercises that allegedly acknowledged right, it is condemned for being excessively heavy-handed.
It makes little difference if Israel imposes a legal maritime blockade to prevent the supply of lethal armaments to Islamist extremists; or if Israeli commandos are forced to use deadly force to prevent themselves from being disemboweled by a frenzied lynch mob; or if, in response to the savage slaughter wrought by Palestinian suicide bombers — which relative to its population, dwarfed the losses on 9/11 — Israel clears the terror-infested and boobytrapped Jenin, using ground troops rather than its air force to minimize Palestinian collateral damage, thus incurring needless casualties of its own.
No matter how murderous the onslaughts initiated by the Palestinians, no matter how blatant the Palestinian brutality, no matter how outrageous the Palestinian provocation, the Israeli response is deemed inappropriate.
Despite the declaration of recognition of some generic abstract right to defend itself and its citizens, it seems that in practice the only “appropriate” response is for Israel to refrain from defending itself.
Exigencies of security
Then there is the reverse racism emblazoned in the subtext of the discourse of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians: The victims of racist hatred are condemned as racist for fending off their racist attackers.
Security barriers are not erected, roadblocks are not put in place, travel restrictions are not enforced as a racist response to Palestinian ethnicity but as a rationale response to Palestinian enmity. To believe otherwise is to fall prey to what Binyamin Netanyahu once called the “reversal of causality.” The blockade of Gaza is a consequence, not a cause, of Hamas’s violence; the West Bank security barrier is the result of, not the reason for, Palestinian terrorism.
If not for the massive carnage at Sbarro pizzeria, at Dizengoff Center, at the Passover Seder in the Park Hotel, there would have been no IDF operation in Jenin in 2002. Without the indiscriminate bombardment of Israeli civilians, there would have been no Cast Lead operation in Gaza in 2009. If pregnant women and ambulances were not used to smuggle explosives into Israeli cities, there would be no need for checkpoints and roadblocks. If Palestinian gunmen would not open fire from vehicles on Israeli families passing by, there would be no need to restrict the movement of Palestinians on certain roads. If Palestinians did not ambush Israeli cars traveling though Palestinian towns, there would be no need to construct special roads for Israelis to bypass those towns.
The outcome of Judeophobic enmity
Of course, the standard Judeophobic response to this will be... “occupation,” that all-purpose, all-weather, one-size-fits-all excuse for every racist Palestinian atrocity perpetrated against the Jews.
According to this morally base and factually baseless contention, all Palestinian violence is an expression of understandable rage and frustration due to years of repressive “occupation” of Palestinian lands.
This claim is as egregious as it is asinine. It must be rejected with the moral opprobrium and the intellectual disdain it so richly deserves.
Indeed, as I have demonstrated in several recent columns, the call for the destruction of the Jewish state was made long before Israel held a square inch of what is now designated as “occupied Palestinian land.” (In fact, the original 1964 Palestinian National Covenant explicitly disavows any sovereign claim to the “West Bank” and Gaza as the Palestinian homeland.) The founding documents of the PLO, Fatah and Hamas are all committed to the destruction of the Jewish state, irrespective of time and regardless of frontiers. This too was the sentiment reiterated by Mahmoud Abbas in his recent UN appearance.
So clearly “Occupation” is not the origin of Palestinian ill-will towards Israel. Quite the reverse. The Israeli presence in Judea, Samaria and Gaza is a direct outcome of Arab ill-will towards Israel, when in 1967 their massive military offensive to destroy Israel failed catastrophically.
It was not Jewish territorial avarice that brought Israel to “the territories” but Arab Judeocidal aggression.
What if there had been no ‘Occupation’?
Even if it can be irrefutably shown that “occupation” is not the origin of Palestinian hostility, might it is not be possible that elimination of “occupation” would induce, if not Palestinian amitié, then at least Palestinian acceptance of Israel? Sadly, all evidence seems to point the other way. Every time Israel has made tangible efforts to remove “occupation,” the frenzy of Palestinian terrorism has soared to a higher crescendo, and forced abandonment or even reversal of these efforts:
• This was the case from 1993 to ’96, when the implementation of the Oslo agreements brought forth a huge wave of suicide bombings.
• This was the case in 2000, when Ehud Barak offered sweeping concessions to the Palestinians, who responded with a wave of unprecedented terrorism which continued under Ariel Sharon’s “restraint-is-strength-policy” until the carnage made military response unavoidable. The result was Operation Defensive Shield in 2002 that brought the IDF back in force to the “West Bank,” where calm has been largely maintained ever since.
This was the case in 2005, when Israel withdrew from Gaza and erased every vestige of “occupation,” and in return received continuing and escalating violence that culminated in Operation Cast Lead.
Clearly, not only can “occupation” not be attributed as the cause of Palestinian enmity, but attempts to remove — or at least attenuate — it seem only to exacerbate this enmity.
Here intriguing questions arise: What if Israel had never taken over the “West Bank” or had withdrawn immediately after doing so, transferring control back to Jordan? What then would have become of the Palestinians and their claims to “national liberation?” What “occupation” would have then been blamed for their plight? What territory would have then been the focus of their efforts to establish their state? These are weighty questions which must await discussion at some later stage, but merely raising them poses a serious challenge to the factually flawed conventional wisdom that dominates and distorts the debate on the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
‘Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitism’
“Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitism” is the mantra sounded with Pavlovian regularity by Israel’s detractors. And they are of course right. Criticism of Israel is not necessarily anti- Semitism.
However, the enduring practice of holding the nation-state of the Jews to discriminatory double standards does makes anti-Semitism an increasingly plausible explanation for that criticism, an explanation can no longer be summarily dismissed without persuasive proof to the contrary.
After all, atrocities of ferocity and scale far beyond anything of which Israel is accused, even by its most vehement detractors, are perpetrated regularly with hardly a murmur of censure from the international community. By contrast the slightest hint of any Israeli infringement — real or imagined — of human rights immediately results in expression of shock and revulsion in headlines in all major media outlets across the globe, precipitates emergency sessions of international organizations, and produces worldwide condemnation, from friend and foe alike.
Of course, the implication is not that Israel should be judged by the same criteria as the tyrannies of Sudan or North Korea; or by the bloody standards of Damascus or Tehran.
The question is, however, why should it be judged by standards and criteria which are far more stringent than those applied to the democracies that make up NATO.
For in the Balkans, in Iraq and in Afghanistan they have enforced blockades and embargoes far more onerous and damaging to civilians than that imposed on Gaza. They conducted military campaigns far from their borders that caused far more civilian casualties than Israel has in campaigns conducted only a few kilometers from the heart of its capital city...
Yet international outcry has been — at best – muted.
So, while holding the Jewish state to standards demanded of no other nation in the exercise of its right to self-defense may have explanations other than anti-Semitism (or Judeophobia to be more precise), no really compelling ones come readily to mind.
The real racism
This brings us back to where we began.
While the Jewish state faces unparalleled threats, and unconditional enmity, it is continually condemned for acting to meet those threats and to contend with that enmity — no matter what measures it adopts, no matter how grave the peril, no matter how severe the provocation.
This then is the real racism that permeates the discourse on the Israel-Palestinian conflict:
• The expectation that the Jews jeopardize their security in order to maintain the viability of manifest falsehoods.
• The perverse portrayal of every coercive measure undertaken by the IDF to protect the lives of Jews against those striving to kill them, merely because they are Jews, as racially motivated, disproportionate violence.
• The disingenuous depiction of the inconvenience caused to Palestinians by these measures as a more heinous evil than the Jewish deaths they are designed to prevent.
• The attitude that shedding Jewish blood is more acceptable than the measures required to prevent it, an element that appears to be becoming increasingly internalized into the discourse on the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

The admiration for Hitler by the Arab fanatics dates from the 1930s, and is well-documented. One of Mr. Arafat's personal heroes, the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, visited Auschwitz and reproached the Germans for not being more determined in exterminating the Jews. In 1985, Mr. Arafat paid the Mufti homage, saying he was 'proud to no end' to be walking in hist footsteps.
The prophet Muhammad fought the Arabian Jews, and the Kor'an has anti- Jewish verses. ... The case of Haj Mohammad Amin al-Husayni (1895–1974), the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who befriended Adolf Hitler and closely collaborated with Nazi Germany, is notorious. From 1941, the Grand Mufti established close contacts with Bosnian and Albanian Muslim leaders and pent the remainder of the war helping the formation of Muslim Waffen SS units in the Balkans and the formation of gtraining centers for Muslim imams and mullahs who would accompany the Muslim SS and Wehrmacht units. Until the end of the World War II in 1945, al-Husayni worked for Nazi Germany as a propagandist for the Arabs and a recruiter of Muslim volunteers for the German armed forces.
Haj Amin al-Husseini, a devotee of the Nazis, issued this summons to the Muslims in a radio broadcast from Berlin on 26 November 1942, after Rommel's defeat at El Alamin on 4 November: Atise, O sons of Arabia! Fight for your sacred rights! Slaughter Jews wherever you find them! Their spilled blood pleases Allah!” In Jerusalem the Muslims' call to kill ... on the Jews, no matter where they are in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. ...Just before the Arab riots against the Jews in August 1929, when 133 Jews were killed and 339 wounded, al-Husseini and his fellow Muslim preachers declared that "he who kills a Jew is assured a place in the next world." Al-Husseini repeated the exhoration to "Kill Jews wherever you find them" in a speech from Berlin on 4 May 1944 to Muslim Handschar SS killing units, responsible for the murder of 90 percent of the Yugoslavian Jews, along with the insistence that it pleases Allah.
...the Palestinian wartime leader "was one of the worst and fanatical fascists and anti-Semites," ... He intervened with the Nazis to prevent the escape to Palestine of thousands of European Jews, who were sent instead to the death camps. He also conspired with the Nazis to bring the Holocaust to Palestine. The mufti "invented a new form of Jew-hatred by recasting it in an Islamic mold," according to German scholar Matthias Küntzel. The mufti's fusion of European anti-Semtism—particularly the genocidal variety—with Koranic views of Jewish wickedness has become the hallmark of Islamists world-wide, from al Qaeda to Hamas and Hezbollah. During his time in Berlin, the mufti ran the Nazis' Arab-language propaganda radio program, which incited Muslims in the Mideast to "kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion." Among the many listeners was also the man later known as Ayatollah Khomeini, who used to tune in to Radio Berlin every evening, according to Amir Taheri's biography of the Iranian leader. Khomeini's disciple Mahmoud Ahmadinejad still spews the same venom pioneered by the mufti as do Islamic hate preachers around the world.
Muslim Judeophobia is not—as is commonly claimed—a reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main "root causes." It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel's creation.
A chilling, fascinating, and nearly forgotten historical figure is resurrected in this riveting work that links the fascism of the last century with the terrorism of our own. Written with vigor and extraordinary access to primary sources in several languages, Icon of Evilis the definitive account of the man who, during World War II, was called "the fuhrer of the Arab world" and whose ugly legacy lives on today. With new and disturbing details, David G. Dalin and John F. Rothmann show how al -Husseini ingratiated himself with his hero, Adolf Hitler, becoming, with his blond hair and blue eyes, an "honorary Aryan" while dreaming of being installed as Nazi leader of the Middle East.
Al-Husseini would later recruit more than 100,000 Muslims in Europe to fight in divisions of the Waffen-SS, and obstruct negotiations with the Allies that might have allowed four thousand Jewish children to escape to Palestine.
Some believe that al-Husseini even inspired Hitler to implement the Final Solution. At wars end, al-Husseini escaped indictment at Nuremberg and was harbored in France.
Icon of Evil chronicles al-Husseinis postwar relationships with such influential Islamic figures as the radical theoretician Sayyid Qutb and Saddam Husseins powerful uncle General Khairallah Talfah and his crucial mentoring of the young Yasser Ararat.
Finally, it provides compelling evidence that al-Husseinis actions and writings serve as inspirations today to the leaders of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations pledged to destroy Israel and the United States.
Fatwas and Holy War: Al-Husseini's Legacy as a Pioneer of Modern Jihad
During the 1920 and 1930s. Haj Amin al-Husseini was one of the first radical Islamic leaders to issue fatwas, or religious rulings, calling for jihad, or holy war, against Great Britain, the United States, the Jews, and the West. Since Workd War I, during which al-Husseini served as an officer in the Ottoman Turkish army, the fatwa was served as a major instrument by which Islamic religious leaders have impelled their followers to engage in acts of jihad, which invariably involved acts of violence and terrorism. http://books.google.com/books?id=QMts5Z36kjAC&pg=PA131

This week the people of London mark the anniversary of the 7/7 suicide bombings, which claimed the lives of 52 people. This might be as good a time as any to look at the challenges journalists face in covering intentional, ideologically based lethal attacks on civilians, which is to say, terrorism.
Journalists are right to fear calling a terrorist a terrorist. The word is often misused, its power exploited, its capacity for bias unbounded, its application all too often judgmental, inflammatory, grossly inexact, even racist.
Sometimes, though, terrorism actually is terrorism.
Last week, a Palestinian drove a bulldozer past a building which houses a number of major world and Israeli news media outlets, ramming the earth mover over and into a succession of cars in an incident which shocked and perplexed a public and a journalist corps which, until that moment, believed that they had seen it all.
There were those among the Israeli press who were all too ready to definitively declare the incident - which at first appeared a possible accident - as outright terrorism.
At the same time, there were those, many of them members of the international news media, who chose a different option, one which, initially at least, seemed much better grounded in journalistic ethics.
Their approach could be seen as a two-dimensional, literal, oddly bloodless, thoroughly anonymous reading of certain facts at hand. "Man shot dead after Jerusalem bulldozer rampage" read the headline in the U.K. Guardian newspaper's online edition." Accompanying picture captions read like a shuttered window: "Bulldozer crashes into Jerusalem bus." "A man seized control of a bulldozer in Jerusalem today and used it to overturn a bus before he was shot and killed. Warning: contains images of dead bodies some may find disturbing."
One of the journalistic lessons of 7/7, like the September 11 attacks four years before, was this: All terrorism is local. That is to say, editors, reporters and news outlets for whom the word terror was long off-limits, may truly comprehend the word and the necessity of its use, only when terrorism strikes their own community. So it was in London, as in New York.
The reactions of journalists, accordingly, may also be seen to be emotional in the extreme, especially when viewed by those who have yet to be stricken. Sometimes, when a Palestinian terrorist strikes, it is the natural reaction of some observers to find new and creative ways to explain why Israel - and only Israel - was truly to blame.
So it was, that last week, when this space carried a dispatch called Palestinian terrorism as a natural act, I received a number of letters which took me to task - one taking the trouble to call me a racist ******* - for failing, in the same essay, to list Jewish massacres of Palestinians, failing to condemn runaway settlement construction, failing to list hundreds of Palestinian villages leveled, failing to denounce house demolitions and expulsions of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, killings of Palestinian children, and "the occupation of lands stolen in 1967."
In other words, for failing to explain why this man did what he did with the bulldozer, and why it pales in comparison to what Israel has done and continues to do.
[...] Call me a racist, but that doesn't change my opinion of the man with the bulldozer one bit.
Just as Palestinian murders of Israelis, Palestinian inculcation of children with racist anti-Semitic incitement, and radical Islamic Palestinian refusal to accept the possibility of a Jewish state, change not one whit my opinion of Baruch Goldstein, who slaughtered 29 Muslims at prayer in Hebron in 1994.
Sometimes, terrorism is just that.
There are those who argue that the bulldozer driver was not a terrorist because he did not belong to an organization which ordered him to kill, or because he used drugs, or was otherwise emotionally unstable.
I would suggest that terrorism is terrorism whether committed on orders or on one's own volition. I would suggest that terrorism is terrorism even if the terrorist is not a model of emotional health. It isn't just anyone off the street, one supposes, who has the emotional instability to intentionally detonate a bomb belt he has strapped to his midriff, or who intentionally flies the plane he is riding into a skyscraper
I would also suggest that terrorism is equally execrable, equally unjustifiable, equally obscene whether committed by a Jew for supposedly Jewish causes, or a Muslim for supposedly Islamic ones.
... The government must see to it that its policies do not harm innocent people, and it is the job of the press to make sure that when this happens, it comes to light, and that officials take steps to see that it does not recur.
At the same time, the Palestinians, and Hamas in particular, can no longer have it both ways. You cannot pretend to be a legitimate government, and still countenance, sponsor, and otherwise permit terrorism to continue.
Hassan Nasrallah apologized to the families of two Israeli children who were killed by a Hezbollah rocket that hit the Christian holy city of Nazareth. He called them shahids, martyrs, even though they did not choose to die at the hands of Hezbollah terrorists. The apology was issued not because they were children or innocent bystanders, but because they were Israeli Arabs and not Jews. Hezbollah's rockets are aimed at Jews and earn cheers whenever they kill a Jewish baby or a grandmother. No apologies there.
The so-called Arab-Israeli conflict represents the first instance since the Holocaust that Jews, as Jews, are being specifically [p. 158] targeted by an international organization... Hezbollah has threatned to attack Jewish targets outside of Israel as well. And it has proved its willingness to do so, as evidenced by its attack on a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires ...

By Alan Dershowitz, professor of law at Harvard. His latest book is The Case for Israel. The Jerusalem Post, April 12, 2004.
Recently, a young student at the Hebrew University was gunned down while jogging through a mixed neighborhood of Jews and Arabs in north Jerusalem. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement, joyously claimed credit for the killing yet another innocent Jew.
When it was later learned that the jogger was a Jerusalem Arab and not a Jew, al-Aqsa quickly apologized to the family, calling it an accident.
But the killing of the innocent young jogger was not an accident; the murderer had deliberately taken aim at his head and midsection, intending to end his life. The only thing accidental about the murder was the religion of the victim. Al-Aqsa had sent the assassin to murder a Jew - any Jew, so long as he was a Jew.
This is racism, pure and simple. And despite efforts by supporters of Palestinian terrorism to justify the murder of innocent civilians as national liberation or by any other euphemism, this case proves that the Palestinian terrorists' targeting of Jews and only Jews - as many as possible - is little different in intent from other forms of lethal or exterminatory anti-Jewish murders. (I don't use the term anti-Semitic only because some Arabs claim that because they too are Semites, they can't be anti-Semitic.)
Obviously the numbers are different, because Israel is capable of defending its Jewish citizens, but if it were not, the goal of Palestinian terrorist groups would not be very different from that of previous groups intent on murdering as many Jews as possible.
The Web sites of various Palestinian terrorist groups proclaim - usually only in English and almost never in Arabic - that they have no quarrel with the Jews, only with the Zionists. Yet they target every Jew, regardless of his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally kill a non-Jew, regardless of his political views. The racist acts of these terrorist groups speak louder than their sanitized English-only anti-Zionist Web sites. Yet the international community - including the UN, the Vatican, and the European Union - claims to see no difference between Palestinian terrorists who target random Jewish civilians and the Israel Defense Forces that target specific mass murderers, such as Ahmed Yassin. It's all part of a "cycle of violence" in which both sides are morally equivalent, according to the double standard consistently applied against Israel by people who should know better.
The preventive killing of the mass murderer Sheikh Yassin received much more negative attention from the moral leaders of these organizations than did the racist attack that accidentally killed the young Arab. This failure - or refusal - to distinguish murder based on religious affiliation from preventive self-defense based on past and future murderous acts is the height of immorality. It would be as if the soldiers who killed Auschwitz guards in the process of liberating the inmates were deemed morally equivalent to the Auschwitz murderers.
It should not be surprising that Palestinian terrorists employ racist criteria in selecting their civilian targets, since the entire goal of Palestinian terrorism is racist to its core. It seeks to deny the Jewish people the right to self-determination. Under their version of Islamic law, it is impermissible for Jews to govern any land that was once under Muslim control, and it is equally impermissible for a Jewish majority to govern a Muslim minority, namely Israeli Arabs.
The time has come for the international community to listen to what Palestinian terrorists say to their own people: that this is a racist struggle to ethnically cleanse all of Palestine, which includes Israel, of all Jews (except, they say, those Jews who lived there before 1917 and are willing to remain as a minority in a Muslim land).
The civilian targets are selected on a racist basis - all Jews are fair game, and if a non-Jew is killed, that is an unfortunate accident.
The terrorist killing of the young Jerusalem Arab student, coupled with the apology when it was learned he was not Jewish, was not only a tragedy for his family (which lost another member to a terrorist attack years earlier), but it is also a revealing episode in the history of Palestinian terrorism. All who hate racism should condemn the selective morality under which a deliberate Jewish civilian death is applauded and a deliberate Arab civilian death is regretted.
The Palestinians' genocide campaign The civilian targets are selected on a racist basis - all Jews are fair game, and if a non-Jew (Arab) is killed, that is an unfortunate accident. http://israelinsider.com/Views1/3533.htm
Europe must take seriously the ideology of anti-Semitism coming out of the Arab and Islamic world. It must denounce the deliberate targeting of Jews by terrorist groups, whether it be al Qaeda or Hamas.
The New York Times Israel Correspondent Shows His Hostility Barry Rubin June 27, 2006 [...] Why, then, is Erlanger obsessed with this distinction? I suggest that what Erlanger is actually saying is that what is really bad about Hamas is not that it is a racist, terrorist group with genocidal intentions against Israelis but that it is an Islamist organization. If, after all, Hamas is exercising a just right of resistance motivated by Israeli misdeeds, how can it be condemned on those grounds? The trouble with Hamas is that it is a 'right wing' religious group rather than a 'left wing' nationalist one. http://www.gloria-center.org/gloria/2006/06/the-new-york-times-israel-correspondent-shows-his-hostility.html
[Mr. ACKERMAN...] Hamas has made clear again and again that they will not be held answerable for the hundreds of innocent civilians they slaughtered with bombs. They will not be held accountable for their overt racism and vile anti-Semitic bigotry.
Official PA Newspaper Prints Racist, Anti-Semitic Cartoons [Published: 05/25/05, 1:45 PM / Last Update: 05/24/05, 8:04 PM] (IsraelNN.com) Despite repeated calls by the Bush administration to end anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian Authority media, the official newspaper of the PA continues to regularly publish hate cartoons against Israel and Jews.
Continued incitement against Israel in the PA press flies in the face of U.S. sponsored Road Map plan. Aside from fighting terrorism, one of the primary obligations of the PA under this plan is the elimination of incitement against Israel. As recently as two days ago, at the AIPAC convention in Washington on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice called on the Arabs to “end incitement in their media.”
[PDF] Anatomy of Anti-Israel Incitement: Jenin, World Opinion and the opportunities to surrender but refused, preferring to give up their lives ..... On one occasion Israeli offers to provide units of blood were rejected by Palestinian authorities who claimed they “did not want Jewish blood.” http://www.adl.org/israel/jenin/jenin.pdf
Claim: An article from The Jewish Journal describes Israeli doctors' providing blood to Palestinians who were injured at Jenin but refused to be given "Jewish blood." Status:True.
Example:[Collected on the Internet, 2002]
A Question of Blood
The piece is entitled, "A Question of Blood," written by Dan Gordon, and it appeared in The Jewish Journal on May 29, 2002.
Dan Gordon is a former sergeant in the IDF, the author of five books, and a screen writer.
He was in Jenin on April 16, and was told a story by Dr. David Zangen, chief medical officer of the Israeli paratroop unit that bore the brunt of the fighting in Jenin.
Dr. Zangen said that the IDF not only worked to keep the Palestinian hospital opened, they offered the Palestinians blood for their wounded.
The Palestinians refused because it was Jewish blood!!
The Israelis, who could not have been faulted for saying, "You don't like it, do without...," instead flew in 2,000 units of blood from Jordan via helicopters. In addition, they saw to it that 40 units of blood from the Mukasad Hospital in East Jerusalem went to the hospital in Ramallah and that 70 units got to the hospital in Tul Karem. And on top of that they facilitated the delivery of 1,800 units of anti-coagulants that had come from Morocco.
This information was later confirmed by Col. Arik Gordin (reserves) of the IDF Office of Military Spokesman, who supplied the exact number of units and the names of the hospitals to which they were delivered.
Dan Gordon concludes thus:
"So the question to ponder... is how do you negotiate with a hatred so great that it will refuse to accept your blood, even to save its own people's lives? How does an international community vilify a nation that offers its own blood to its enemies, while its own soldiers lie dying, and that, when faced with race hatred that brands their blood unfit, diverts military flights to bring blood more suitable to the taste of those who would destroy them?"
Takes my breath away. How about yours? Please, don't be quiet about this story. Share it far and wide!
Origins: This item is true in the sense that author and screenwriter Daniel Gordon did pen a piece entitled "A Question of Blood" which was published in the 24 May 2002 edition of The Jewish Journal, and the message quoted above is a mostly verbatim excerpt taken from that article. We can't verify everything in the piece beyond that, other than to note that Mr. Gordon provided information about who gave him the story ("Dr. David Zangen, chief medical officer of the Israeli paratroop unit which bore the brunt of the fighting in Jenin"), who confirmed it ("Col. Arik Gordin [reserves] of the IDF Office of Military Spokesman"), and the nature of the confirming evidence ("the exact numbers of units of blood and anticoagulants and the names of the hospitals to which they were delivered"), and that Israeli accounts of the fighting at Jenin were far more accurate than others' accounts, including much of the western press (the subject of another article by Mr. Gordon).
Lie No. 1: The Palestinians were a sovereign people and nation until they were "expelled" in 1948.
Facts: The area known as Palestine was a province of the Ottoman Empire from the 16th Century until the British took control in 1917. From 1917 until 1948, the area was under British operational control and, later, mandate.
There was never a Palestinian nation.
Further, the population of the entire area, according to a 1879 Encyclopedia Britannica, was never substantial and was ethnically diverse. Any inhabitants there were concentrated in two cities, Jerusalem and Jaffa, and in the nomadic Bedouin tribes.
There was also a constant Jewish community. From the time of the first census in 1844 to the present, there have always been more Jews in Jerusalem than Moslems. Large-scale Jewish immigration

Israel is preparing to send aid to Turkey in the wake of a powerful earthquake that hit the east of the country. The Foreign Ministry said that the scope of the assistance depends on Ankara's willingness to accept it.
According to reports, up to 1,000 could be dead due to the 7.2-magnitue quake that struck the Van province Sunday. Turkey's deputy prime minister said that around 45 buildings have collapsed in the town of Ercis and the city of Van. Ercis sits on a geological fault line.
Shalit, Israel - Good Vs Evil / Culture of Life Vs Cult of Death
ISRAEL - GOOD VS EVIL JIHAD
CULTURE OF LIFE VS CULT OF DEATH
Young Israeli, Gilad Shalit was released by the Islamists captors, in exchange for over 1,000 Arab-Muslims bent on killing Israeli civilians.
The life of one single Israeli Jew.
What the 'for life' culture is willing to sacrifice Vs the 'cult-of-death,' who sees an Arab woman's womb as the "greatest weapon..." Who loves "death as much as" we "love life."
While Israeli soldiers who are trained to practice restraint against those who announce/practice their attempted annihilation of every Jew in the region, the Arab-Islamic opponent through its "death factories," does every trick in the book to cause civilian casualties, sacrificing its women and children, for this "sacred' cult-ish idea/ideology.
On top of it, Israeli hospitals treat the very Arabs who are initiating violence, the same Zionist entity who practices 'affirmative action' on its (more than) equal Arab -minority- citizens.
If this is not the epitome of 'good vs. evil,' what is?
OpEdNews - Article: The Hamas Death Factory January 17, 2009 By Ari Bussel The focus of this article is on Hamas. Operation Cast Lead would not have been needed, and indeed can be stopped immediately, if Hamas, a terror organization that calls in its Charter to the destruction of the Jewish State, were to stop its efforts to attain this goal. Hamas has turned Gaza into a Factory of Death. I highlight below some of the Factory's main characteristics. The war that rages on has its front lines in Argentina and UK,India and USA, China and Venezuela, Russia and Egypt. It is a war in the area of public opinion, and we are all soldiers in the Public Diplomacy Front. We are all part and are likely victims in a greater struggle between Sunni and Shiite Islam to achieve world domination. Therefore, we need to understand the threat. Only then will we be able to search and find the wisdom and courage with which to fight, with which to prevail as a victor.
The 20th Day, a Recap and an Update January 15th, 2009. Day 20 of Operation "Cast Lead," Israel's attempt at stopping the firing of rockets from Gaza to Israeli cities and preventing further armament of Hamas in Gaza. To achieve these goals, the manufacturing infrastructure in Gaza had to be destroyed and the very intensive smuggling operation from Egypt into Gaza had to be stopped. The enormous caches of advanced rockets (improved Grad2 and others) must also be destroyed. They have a very long shelf life and will eventually be used against Israel.
There is yet another unstated goal: A 22 year old soldier has been held by Hamas in Gaza after being kidnapped from Israel on6/25/2006. Gilad Shalit is in enemy's hands for 930 days. He is afforded no visitation rights. The International Red Cross has not been allowed to see him. Gilad is the human face of Israel's promise to its mothers and fathers that their sons and daughters will always come back home that Israel will do everything possible to uphold this promise...
Operation Cast Lead rages on in Gaza. 9AM in Israel and already more than ten rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza toward Israeli cities. 11 soldiers were wounded during the night's operations during which 35 armed gunmen were hit, mostly in aerial attacks directed by ground forces.Israel's Air Force (IAF) attacked approximately 70 terrorist sites, including a mosque in Rafah used to stockpile rockets and served as an assembly area for senior operatives involved in launching rockets; 14 cells of armed gunmen; 14 sites used to launch rockets and mortars at Israeli communities and cities; five weapon storage facilities located in, and one tunnel located under, houses of Hamas operatives.
A Real War
This is war, although not by name (since Gaza is not a country and Hamas is a terrorist operation). People die, needlessly. "Needlessly" since the war can be stopped as soon as Hamas stops firing and ends its race for rearmament. There is a third unstated pre-condition: Hamas needs to change it Charter that calls for the destruction of the Jewish State. But Hamas does not want to stop. Hamas also could have released Gilad Shalit any any point during the last 930 days or during the period of regrouping (Tahadia) that preceded Operation Cast Lead, but it chose not to do so. Instead, Hamas uses the 22 year old Israeli soldier in the most cynical way, teasing Israel constantly. Now he is alive, now he is no longer safe. Now we do not hear or see him, next who knows what may be. Hamas's fellow Iranian crony in the region, Hizbollah, used Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, may they rest in peace, in a similar manner, finally trading in their body parts to force Israel to do the unthinkable releasing hundreds of terrorists, including one who for the pure barbaric joy of the act, smashed the skull of a four year old girl just because she was Jewish, just because she was Israeli, JUST BECAUSE THERE IS ISRAEL.
The Hamas Death Factory
Hamas does not only trade in the hope of parents to see their 22 year old son back safely, it also exhumes bodies from recently dug graves to parade them for hours at a time on Al Jazeera "news" network and on the internet as "fresh casualties." Hamas also constantly manufactures fresh dead bodies. This it does on both sides of the border firing rockets and mortar shells toward Israel to kill and maim as many people as possible,and firing from within high rise buildings, schools, hospitals and mosques,making sure to surround itself with civilians, so even with the utmost effort and consideration by Israel, they become casualties of war.
Hamas turned Gaza into a very sophisticated manufacturing facility of death. Every step is booby trapped, from buildings to chicken feed buckets. Tunnels are dug underneath to trap and kidnap soldiers as wellas to provide hiding and storage spaces. Sniper posts were erected near mosques. Ammunition and weaponry caches are stored in multi-story residential buildings. More than a million people act as a cover, an invisible protection for this Death Factory.
Hamas has taken the freedom away from the Gazans. It uses the Gazans who elected it into power as human shields whose life is to serve two purposes to add to the fight against Israel in the front of public opinion and to ensure that their death is highlighted, paraded and used to brainwash tens of millions of new fighters and haters of Jews, Israel and the West. Hamas thus plays a major role in the advance of radical Islam toward global domination... A Manufacturing Facility of Death, a trap both as a physic allocation (step through a door, the house will explode; come close to a fuel depot, the whole village will be incinerated; fire at a building from which rockets were launched and secondary explosions of ammunition stored will cause phosphorus burns or inflict even more pain and death) and as a PR stunt (shoot from the UN building or from the building where the Foreign Press is reporting,and the whole world will be angry at Israel).
This is not a video game. It is a real life (and death) situation in which the points add in the speed of light in favor of the main player: HAMAS. Hamas's task is very easy: launch at Israel you win. Sacrifice your people you win. Improve the lives of your people? Hamas came into power since it-much like Hizbollah in the north-provided much needed social services, a support network to the local population. Yet,its schools and mosques served as indoctrination points, and the true purpose surfaced.
In the Manufacturing Facility of Death, there is no real interest to improve the lives of the Gazans. With the billions already spent and the billions now committed to the Gazans, one should ask oneself why is Gaza not the next Cannes-along-the-Mediterranean? Why is there no manufacturing (not of explosives and booby-traps and other death-related instruments),agriculture and science and technology? Why are there still refugee camps with little if any infrastructure? What has the UN done over the past many decades when the palestinian refugees are its sole focus and reason for existence? Why has the Arab world not insisted on improving the lives of their fellow brethren theGazans and allowed instead the continued smuggling operation stockpiles of advanced weaponry, trained terrorists, Iranian experts in warfare into Gaza? http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Hamas-Death-Factory-by-Ari-Bussel-090115-410.html

Gilad Shalit looks frail and emaciated: what have his captors done to him? Telegraph.co.uk Andrew M Brown Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier who's just been released after five years in a Palestinian jail, is relieved to be free. No wonder. To look at him now, compared with earlier photographs, he appears to have lost a good deal of weight. In the press conference this morning he seemed dozy, and his complexion is blanched. He looks as I imagine someone to look who's just emerged from lengthy seclusion in a darkened room. He appears undernourished. http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/andrewmcfbrown/100111785/gilad-shalit-looks-frail-and-emaciated-what-have-his-captors-done-to-him/
"WE [ISLAMISTS] LOVE DEATH AS MUCH AS YOU [ISRAEL] LOVE LIFE"
A Genealogy of Evil: Anti-Semitism from Nazism to Islamic Jihad - Page 6 -David Patterson - Camridge University Press, 2010 - History - 296 pages Hassan Nasrallah (b. 1960), head of Hezbollah, boasts that Islamic Jihadists choose death over life. Said Osama bin Laden (b. 1957) to CNN reporter Peter Arnett in March 1997, "We love…death…as much as you love life." In a sermon delivered on 25 May 2001, the Palestinian Liberation Organization's mufti of Palestine from 1994 to 2006, Ikrima Sabri (b. 1939), declared, "We tell them [the Jews]: in as much as you love life – the Muslim loves death." Thus, not only is the Torah's summons to choose life abrogated, but so is its prohibition against murder.
The evil that surrounds the Jihadist love for death lies in a love for the death of the other human being – specifically, the death of the Jew. That is what they love – not the death of oneself for the sake of another, not the death that affirms life in an affirmation of the One who commands us to choose life and forbids us to murder. No, the Jihadists love inflicting death: witness the mass celebrations that occurred throughout the Muslim world over the murders committed on 9/11. The Jihadists love inflicting death so much that they are literally dying to kill – or rather, they are bent on indoctrinating their children in the desperate longing to kill, as stipulated in Article Eighteen of the Hamas "Charter of Allah."20 Here and elsewhere their discourse makes it clear that they have no love for the One who forbids both self-murder and the murder of others. Simply stated, the Islamic Jihadists' love for death is a love for murder, a love for making their children into murderers. Murder is as much a defining feature of Islamic Jihadism as, in the words of Emil Fackenheim, it was the "pure essence" of "the Nazi empire." [...] Forging murder and suicide into a single action of "martyrdom," the Islamic Jihadist evil... the Jihadists make God into the Führer... a god whose commandment is not merely to choose death but to love death, as the Jihadists themselves boast. Once the "divine" injunction is to pursue death over life – death through murder – we face an evil even more radical than the Nazi evil. Hannah Arendt once declared that "we cannot conceive of a ‘radical evil.'" Unable to accommodate the Nazi evil, writes Arendt, all we can say is that "radical evil has emerged in connection with a system in which all men have become equally superfluous." With the Jihadist evil, not only are all men equally superfluous – all men must be enlisted into the project of making all men equally superfluous. Facing this radical evil, we are compelled to address its genealogy, so that, understanding where it comes from, we may see where it is going – and respond to it. http://books.google.com/books?id=lMLmK-fmf8kC&pg=PA6&lpg=PA6 http://www.cambridge.org/aus/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521197472&ss=exc

Affirming affirmative action Social and economic inclusion of Arab society in Israel will contribute to creating true equality, the foundation stone for building a shared society - a declared, key goal of MK Avishay Braverman, the minister of minority affairs. Let’s hope the plan succeeds, and impels us to move in the right direction. By Mohammad Darawshe Last week the cabinet approved an investment of more than $210 million in the economic development of the Arab community over the next five years. This is considered the largest such investment ever in this population, and is intended to strengthen the economy through construction and expansion of industrial areas, creation of administrative institutions, development of professional and academic training programs, and improvement of the police force, as well as infrastructure, tourism, transportation and day-care services. http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/opinion/affirming-affirmative-action-1.283819
Israel a safe haven for Arabs - Israel Opinion, Ynetnews 27 Apr 2011 ...

Through this brave, desperate act, he was transformed into the symbol of the new Arab revolution. Reflecting on Bouazizi’s ultimate act of protest, one can hardly conceive of what atmosphere and surroundings would compel an individual to resort to such an extreme Israel’s Arab citizens are also afforded affirmative action measures in educational institutions and government offices. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4061229,00.html

If you can prove a country called Palestine existed on Planet Earth in any time ever, before 1948, then wingless.aoriginality.com has $$$$ reward for you! COME ON DOWN! They had no takers yet because you will never find information on something non-existent. (if it was a country, what was its capital, its flag, its government, who recognized it, what was its history, its currency, when did it declare independence etc...) http://wingless.aoriginality.com
Never confuse between us going after terrorists-mass murderers, and them going after our babies.
Israel, the gem in the jungle.
Free Israel from Goliath Islamo Arab persecution, incitement & vilification in their vast media & school textbooks, in the UN, and in physical terror on Israeli babies.
Each time Islamists murder a baby in Israel, they mean you and me.
Funny creed Islamists, you can bomb own Mosques in the name of Islam, butcher own brothers & sisters or masses of the infidels in the name of Islam, but no, you can't have a comic little cartoon.
In the most "moderate" Arab Muslim regime, women are still treated as cattle, and non Muslims considered second [dhimmi] or worse class of 'human beings'.
When Arab Muslim 'Palestinians' will start liking their own kids at least as Israeli Zionists are worried for Arabs' well being, peace has a chance.
Arab Muslims serve proudly in democratic Israeli fee for all equal for all parliament, but an Israeli Jew needs armed guard just to pass by a street in "Palestinian" Arab Muslim controlled area - hell on earth.
What "land" did Arab Muslim (then not called yet by term:) "Palestinians" seek to "free" since their 1929 & thereafter continuous massacres on Jews in the holyland?
Almost everybody knows Mark Twain's famous description of the desolation in Palestine during his 1867 journey to the Holy Land: "There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent - not for thirty miles in either direction." - So much for the myth of 'native palestinian Arabs'.
Arab Muslim Terrorism came before that "occupation" fake excuse.
Free Arab Muslim Palestinian children from their terrible parents that only use them as bombs and as shields.
A criminal "society" (palestinian) so low that shoots it's own kids (like Muhammad Al Dura in Ramallah, killing Arab kids in Rafah & others or putting them in front of their firing machine guns) only to tarnish Israeli police good guys, needs a shaking change from top to bottom.
... As palestinian horrific Hamas said (2002 Cartoon): 'Our "struggle" with Israel is only PART of our overall STRUGGLE with the WEST".
Free world from Arab Muslim OIL Mafia of brutal tyrants, sucking us to the bone.
Amazing how "white" Neo/old-nazis will so hypocritically act as IF they 'sympathize' with "brown" palestinian Islamic terrorists murderers, and even justify them, all for that goal to bash Israel, that they so envy it's higher morality.
If the Arab "Palestinian" parents would care about their kids as much as the Israeli compassionate soldiers do, peace would have a chance!
As 'Palestinian' "spiritual" leaders of Islamic Hamas said to Israel: You choose and value life, we value & prefer death!
The palestinian Hamas & Jihad is worse -- in a way -- than other Jihadists that they often use their kids as human bombs.
"Israel is like a kid who's parents were burned in the ovens, learned martial arts and will defend himself." (Michael Savage)
Only four types of individuals can deny the threat to civilization posed by the violence-supporting segment of Islam: the willfully naive, America-haters, Jew-haters and those afraid to confront evil. (Atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com)
1) Are you denying that the Arab racist attacks on Jews in Israel/"palestine" has started since 1838 (Safed) [so were the attacks in 1883, 1920, 1921, 1929 - Hebron, etc.]?
2) Had Israel be a (mostly) Arab-Muslim State, would the intolerant Arab-Muslim Goliath world not accept them?
3) Why is there a complete silence on the historical fact of Arab immigration late 1800s early 1900s into Israel/"palestine"?
4) What anti-Israel bigotry is stronger, the "Arab racism"; factor? or the 'Islamic-Jihad' factor?
5) 'Moral equivalence' Do you have Arab activists on behalf of Israeli victims, just like you have Jewish, Israeli, Zionists activists for the (so called) 'Palestinian cause' (whatever that is...)?
6) If humane Israel would really go after "unarmed poor palestinians" as the 'Pallwood' propagandists tell us, How many Arabs would have survived Israel's might?
7) Who's more at fault, the Arab Muslim "Palestinians" parents pushing for Shahid-isim, or the indoctrinating Mullahs, Imams in the holy Mosques for using "Palestinian" kids and women as human bombs and as human shields (so they can blame the Zionists when Arab kids die)?
8) What would have happened if Arab Muslim "Palestinians" would have invested as much energy in rebuilding their lives as they do in destroying both nations' lives in fascistic Jihad, total hatred and campaign for GENOCIDE [to "drink the blood of the Jews" or to "push them all to the sea", or to "wipe them off of map"]?
9) Why does "bad" IDF Israeli army announce an area residents' civilians to evacuate before an operation against terrorists?
10) Why did Humane Israel's IDF invented specially low range missiles designed to hit ONLY the [terror] target and minimize collateral damage?
11) When was the last time the "Palestinian" well oil-ed propaganda machine has retracted [or even apologized] for it's usual PALLYWOOD fake images industry?
12) What's the difference between a Christian in Indonesia, Buddhist in Thailand, Christian in Nigeria, in Philippines, Australians in Bali (2002), non Muslims in London (0707/2005), in Madrid (bombing), "not the-right-kind-of-Muslims" in Shiite-Sunni hateful massacres in Iraq, oppression & massacres in the "Islamic Republic of Iran", and Israeli victims of the same "evil ideology"?
13) What's a harder oppression, your "average" Arab Muslim regime's on it's own people, Hamas-tan Islamic Apartheid [which most "Palestinians" supported!] on non Muslims, or the pro-Jihad parents' on their kids?
14) What would have happened if at least ONE Arab Muslim nation [regular or oil-ed one] would really care about the Arab [brothers, that since the 1960's started to call themselves as] "Palestinians" and let them get off the terror slum into normality and even prosperity?
15) What part of 'BLIND FASCISM' do Arab-Muslims deny, the usual obsessed anti Israel demonization [no matter what Israel does] or the reluctance to see Israel's super kind gestures for those that are trying to kill them [releases from prison, giving away own land vital to it's security, humanitarian aid, etc.] not as goodness but as "weakness"?
16) Why is it that when Islamists terrorists [Hamas or Hezbullah, Islamic Jihad, etc.] succeed in making sure Arab kids die [with their known tactics of cowardly firing among or behind children, etc.] the Arabs, Muslims rejoice and the Israelis, Jews are saddened ?
16) How can land be an issue [or the blatant lies the Arab lobby's financed: Jimmy Carter has said, though he admitted that Israel is a great equal democracy for all, Arabs and Jews alike!'] if "moderate" Palestinian official government still has venomous hatred and pro 'death cult' in it's regular curriculum and on it's official TV, or that such "moderate" Arab media outlets [like Al Jazeera] still glorify mass murder as "martyrdom"?
17) Who's more powerful, the Arab Muslim Goliath Oil mafia "lobby" on the world or a Chinese, Italian, Israeli, Irish, pharmaceutical, cigarettes lobbyist in Washington?
18) Had the International Arab Muslim lobby of nations in the UN [or the EU] not threatened other nations to bash Israel 24/7 [motivated by intolerance only!], What would be then the outcome?
Let's make it clear, even if there will be a "Palestine" state, it will
never change the factual history, that a group of foreign Arab immigrants came
into the (historic) land of the Jews (and started to call themselves as "Palestinians"
in the 1960's) and hijacked the world comunity via terrorism and
Arab oil power to give them yet a second 'Palestine' state (after Jordan).
ISRAEL VS UN'S ANTI ISRAEL BIAS
Israel should have [a long time ago] press the UN for:
1) Condemming Arab Muslim 'Palestinian' parents, teachers, leaders, Mullahs, for using Arab kids as human shields and as human bombs, clarifying the real culprits in Arabs' deaths.
2) Violations by ILLEGAL PA Arabs "settlers" on Israel's "agreed" borders by the UN.
3) "Palestinian" Violation of virtually ALL agreemants pacts with Israel (Oslo, Camp David, etc.).
4) The PA official media & education = hate (crimes) campaign on "the joos", (not just on Israel...).
5) Exposing the constant intimdation on nations by the GOLIATH ARAB MUSLIM (oil) block, to tarnish innocent Israel in the UN.
