1941-2011 70 Years to Arab Nazism in "Palestine" nothing has changed!

This is the real FLAG of Islamic [worse than apartheid] envisioned [23rd] Arab State called: Palestine.

The same Arab-Nazi Judenrein plan… as you hear PLO’s admission of a "vision" of a Jew-Free Palestine… scheme.

In November, 1941, the Grand Mufti meets with Adolph Hitler. Hitler declined to shake the Mufti’s hand and refused to drink coffee with him. (As Arabs were considered "monkeys" by Hitler/Nazis). But still managed to cooperate against the Jews. The Islamic pan-Arab leader also called for a jihad against the British and their Western allies.



Armies of the young: child soldiers in war and terrorism, David M. Rosen, (2005), p. 106


Nationalist rhetoric accompanied major efforts to build fascist-style youth organizations by recruiting young men to serve as the strike force of the nationalist movement. Throughout the 1930s the children of wealthy Palestinians returned home from European universities having witnessed the emergence of fascist paramilitary forces. Palestinian students educated in Germany returned to Palestine determined to found the Arab Nazi Party.

The Husseinis used the Palestinian Arab Party to establish the al-Futuwwa youth corps, which was named after an association of Arab Nazi Scouts. By 1936 the Palestinian Arab Party was sponsoring the developments of storm troops patterned on the German model. These storm troops, all children and youth, were to be outfitted in black trousers and red shirts… The young recruits took the following oath: “Life — my right; independence — my aspiration; Arabism — my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness.” .. The al-Futuwwa youth groups connected Palestinian youth to fascist youth movements elsewhere in the Middle East. While the Mufti was establishing youth groups in Palestine, al-Futuwwa groups were established in Iraq.

The United Nations Should Not Recognize an Apartheid, Judenrein, Islamic Palestine

The United Nations Should Not Recognize an Apartheid, Judenrein, Islamic Palestine :: Hudson New York

by Alan M. Dershowitz

September 21, 2011 at 11:30 am

The United Nations is being asked to grant the Palestinians the status of a "state," for at least some purposes. The question arises what kind of a state will it be? In an effort to attract Western support, the Palestinian Authority claims that it will become another "secular democratic state." Hamas, which won the last parliamentary election, disagrees. It wants Palestine to be a Muslim state governed by Sharia Law.

We know what the Palestinian leadership is saying to the West. Now let's look at what its saying to its own people, who will, after all, be the ultimate decision makers if Palestine is indeed a democracy.

The draft constitution for the new state of Palestine declares that "Islam is the official religion in Palestine." It also states that Sharia Law will be "the major source of legislation." It is ironic that the same Palestinian leadership which supports these concepts for Palestine refuses to acknowledge that Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. Israel, in contrast to the proposed Palestinian state, does not have an official state religion. Although it is a Jewish state, that description is not a religious one but rather a national one. It accords equal rights to Islam, Christianity and all other religions, as well as to atheists and agnostics. Indeed, a very high proportion of Israelis describe themselves as secular.

The new Palestinian state would prohibit any Jews from being citizens, from owning land or from even living in the Muslim state of Palestine. The Ambassador of the PLO to the United States was asked during an interview whether "any Jew who is inside the borders of Palestine will have to leave?" His answer: "Absolutely!" After much criticism, the Ambassador tried to spin his statement, saying that it applied only to Jews "who are amid the occupation." Whatever that means, one thing is clear: large numbers of Jews will not be welcome to remain in Islamic Palestine as equal citizens. In contrast, Israel has more than 1 million Arab citizens, most of whom are Muslims. They are equal under the law, except that they need not serve in the Israeli army.

The new Palestine will have the very "law of return" that it demands that Israel should give up. All Palestinians, no matter where they live and regardless of whether they have ever set foot in Palestine, will be welcome to the new state, while a Jew whose family has lived in Hebron for thousands of years will be excluded.

To summarize, the new Palestinian state will be a genuine apartheid state. It will practice religious and ethnic discrimination, it will have one official religion and it will base its laws on the precepts of one religion. Imagine what the status of gays will be under Sharia law!

Palestinian leadership accuses Israel of having roads that are limited only to Jews. This is entirely false: a small number of roads on the West Bank are restricted to Israelis, but they are equally open to Israeli Jews, Muslims and Christians alike. The entire state of Palestine will have a "no Jews allowed" sign on it.

It is noteworthy that the very people who complain most loudly about Israel's law of return and about its character as the nation state of the Jewish people, are silent when it comes to the new Palestinian state. Is it that these people expect more of Jews than they do of Muslims? If so, is that not a form of racism?

What would the borders of a Palestinian state look like if the Palestinians got their way without the need to negotiate with Israel? The Palestinians would get, as a starting point, all of the land previously occupied by Jordan prior to the 1967 War, in which Jordan attacked Israel. This return to the status quo that led to the 6 Day War is inconsistent with the intention of Security Council Resolution 242, which contemplated some territorial changes.

The new boundaries of this Palestinian state would include Judaism's holiest place, the Western Wall. It would also include the access roads to Hebrew University, which Jordan used to close down this great institution of learning founded by the Jews nearly 100 years ago. The new Palestinian state would also incorporate the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, in which Jews have lived for 3000 years, except for those periods of time during which they were expelled by force.

It is contemplated, of course, that Israel would regain these areas as part of a land swap with the Palestinians. But there is no certainty that the Palestinians would agree to a reasonable land swap. Palestinian leaders have already said that they would hold these important and sacred sites hostage to unreasonable demands. For example, the Western Wall covers only a few acres, but the Palestinian leadership has indicated that these acres are among the most valuable in the world, and in order for Israel to regain them, they would have to surrender thousands of acres. The same might be true of the access road to Hebrew University and the Jewish Quarter.

When Jordan controlled these areas, the Jordanian government made them Judenrein—Jews could not pray at the Western Wall, visit the Jewish Quarter, or have access to Hebrew University. There is no reason to believe that a Palestinian state would treat Jews any differently if they were to maintain control over these areas.

An Apartheid, Islamic, Judenrein Palestine on the 1967 borders is a prescription for disaster. That is why a reasonable Palestinian state must be the outcome of negotiations with Israel, and not the result of a thoughtless vote by the United Nations.

The Palestinians and Israeli leaders are now in New York. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has offered to sit down and negotiate, with no preconditions, a realistic peace based on a two-state solution. President Abbas should accept that offer, which will actually get the Palestinians a viable state rather than a cheap paper victory that will raise expectations but lower the prospects for real peace.

Inernational: From Israel to New York – Jews, Christians Protest Hamas Led …‎ Israel News Agency

By Joel Leyden
Israel News Agency

New York — September 20, 2011 …. Thousands of Jewish and Christian protesters are taking to the streets in Jerusalem and in New York to protest a UN vote on the creation of a Hamas led Palestine…

The issue is not a vote at the UN. The issue is that of an all out PR campaign of incitement and violence coordinated by Iran, Syria, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah which will transcend into a regional war in the Middle East.

The Israel Defense Forces are preparing for mass riots as the Israel Defense Forces Home Front Command prepares bomb shelters for it’s citizens.

Mark Regev, spokesman for the Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, criticized the Palestinian effort last Friday, calling it a violation of the Oslo Accords, the 1993 agreement between Israel and the PLO.

“The Palestinians made a commitment to Israel and the world, to resolve all outstanding issues through negotiations. The Palestinians are violating their signed commitments.”

Regev also threatened the PA, saying that if they proceed with their UN action either with the General Assembly or the Security Council, “Israel will reserve the right to respond in kind”. Several Israel lawmakers have suggested responding by annulling the accords or by annexing all or part of the entire West Bank. The West Bank, which never belonged to any entity known as Palestine, belonged to Jordan before the 1967 war.

While many protest a UN vote for a Palestine that has openly stated that it would not allow Jews inside their country, a state of Apartheid, Americans are also out in the streets protesting the arrival of Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The New York based advocacy group United Against Nuclear Iran, is protesting outside the Warwick Hotel in Manhattan where Ahmadinejad is staying.

“Ahmadinejad is the leader of a criminal regime allied with al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and guilty of atrocious human rights violations,” the group said in a statement. “Would the Warwick be willing to accommodate Osama bin Laden’s successor Ayman al-Zawahiri were he to visit Manhattan?”

Some anniversaries in Arabs’ racist war on Israel/Jews 1921-2011 – unrelated to that “occuptaion” false excuse

September 20, 2011

Some anniversaries in Arabs’ racist war on Israel/Jews 1921-2011

Within a few days, next to the term “Palestine” we are bound to be subject to hear that filthy blanket-for-Arab-crimes: “occupation” mantra [this despite the falsehood of the term, like, for instance, that the Arab “Palestinians” never really ‘HAD’ the disputed territories, nevertheless], being thrown around at the Arab lobby’s hijacked United Nations. Let’s put, then, some anniversaries in perspective, especially their pre-1967 anti-Israel, or more accurately anti-Jewish war.

Arafat’s greatest weapon – mothers’ womb in action: Mother of 4 terrorist murderers chosen by the PA to launch statehood campaign

September 19, 2011
Mother of 4 terrorist murderers
chosen by the PA
to launch statehood campaign

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

The Palestinian Authority chose the mother of 4 terrorist murderers, one of whom killed seven Israeli civilians and attempted to killed twelve others, as the person to launch their statehood campaign with the UN.

In a widely publicized event, the PA had Latifa Abu Hmeid lead the procession to the UN offices in Ramallah and to hand over a letter for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

[Al-Ayyam, Sept. 9, 2011]
 
[PA TV News, Sept. 8, 2011]
 

In a widely publicized event, the PA had Latifa Abu Hmeid lead the procession to the UN offices in Ramallah and to hand over a letter for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

The official PA daily reported that she launched the UN campaign last week, and noted that she is the "mother of seven prisoners and of the Shahid (Martyr) Abd Al-Mun’im Abu Hmeid." However, the paper did not mention that 4 of her imprisoned sons are murderers.

Palestinian Media Watch reported last year that Abu Hmeid then had 4 sons in Israeli prisons who were each serving between two and seven life sentences, a total of 18 life sentences. At that time she was in the news because the PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake, decided to honor her with an award, "the Plaque of Resoluteness and Giving… inscribed with the names of her four sons who are imprisoned."

The PA minister explained then why the mother of 4 murderers of Israelis deserves such honor:

"It is she who gave birth to the fighters, and she deserves that we bow to her in salute and in honor."
 

The four sons are serving a total of 18 life sentences for the following crimes:

Nasser Abu Hmeid
– 7 life sentences + 50 years – commander in Fatah’s military wing the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades in Ramallah. Convicted of killing seven Israeli civilians and 12 attempted murders.

Nasr Abu Hmeid – 5 life sentences – Member of terror faction of Fatah, Tanzim, and convicted of involvement in two terror attacks and arms dealing.

Sharif Abu Hmeid – 4 life sentences – a member in one of the brothers’ units carrying out terror attacks against civilians and soldiers. Accompanied a suicide bomber to his attack in March 2002.

Muhammad Abu Hmeid – 2 life sentences + 30 years – involvement in terror attacks.

A fifth son, Abd Al-Mun’im Muhammad Yusuf Naji Abu Hmeid, the one reffered to as "Martyr," was a member of the military wing of Hamas, Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and planned and carried out the ambush and murder of an Israeli intelligence officer.

PMW has not been able to determine for which crimes the rest of the sons are imprisoned.

The following are the reports about the mother of the terrorists launching the PA statehood campaign:
PA TV News interviews Abd Al-Mun’im Wahdan, a member of the "Palestine – the 194th state" national campaign:

Wahdan: "We of the ‘Palestine – the 194th state’ national campaign [calling for] a Palestinian state with full sovereignty on the territory of Palestine, send a delegation from institutions, organizations, and popular factions. This delegation was headed by Um Nasser Abu Hmeid – this fighter woman, who is the mother of seven prisoners and the mother of the heroic Shahid (Martyr) from the [military wing of Hamas] Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. This campaign included a letter in which the people demand that the UN recognize Palestine as a state with full sovereignty, like the other countries."
[PA TV (Fatah), Sept. 8, 2011]
 
"The ‘Palestine – the 194th State’ campaign has embarked on its national activities in support of realization [of the appeal to the UN] in September and obtaining UN membership for the State of Palestine, by conveying a letter to the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, via his representative in Ramallah. The campaign started out opposite the UN building in Ramallah, with the participation of a number of heads of factions and national forces, representatives of official and popular institutions, independent personalities, and members of trade unions. Hajja Latifa Abu Hmeid, mother of seven prisoners and of the Shahid (Martyr) Abd Al-Mun’im Abu Hmeid, handed the letter to the representative of the UN Secretary General in Ramallah."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 9, 2011]

 

"[In a procession which set off] yesterday from opposite the Cultural Auditorium in Ramallah in the direction of the UN representative office in Ramallah, the ‘Palestine – the 194th State’ national campaign was inaugurated… when Latifa Abu Hmeid, known as the ‘mother of the prisoners’, handed over a letter addressed to UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, via his representative in Ramallah… She was chosen [for this] because she is a symbol of Palestinian suffering as a result of the occupation’s (i.e., Israel’s) policy… She is the mother of prisoners Muhammad Abu Hmeid and his brothers Nasr, Nasser, Sharif, Basel, Islam and Jihad. She is prevented from seeing her sons who are sitting in the occupation’s prisons."

1660

Only one Jew survived the 1660 massacre in Safed by Arabs, Jews had to buy off the attackers via borrowing money from rich Muslims at high interest which were extorted with threats of further attacks.


1830’s

* First recorded attack –in modern era– on native Jews in Israel by Muslims, is the one in June 1834, Safed (the Plunder), the massacres and mass rapes went on for 33 days, (a provocateur, Muhammed Damoor, a self-proclaimed prophet, ‘prophesied’ the attack for which he agitated).
It was repeated in 1838.

* Egyptian soldiers massacred Jews in Hebron on the way of putting down a Muslim rebellion.
About the same time, Jewish houses and shops in Jerusalem were broken into and looted by local Muslim insurgents.

Throughout the 1830’s, the Jews found themselves caught between the ravages of the Egyptian soldiers and the multi-ethnic Muslim rebels who fought them.

* [Beginning, major wave of] Egyptian Arab immigration to Palestine.


1844

First census in Jerusalem shows 7120 Jews, 5760 Muslims, 3390 Christians.


1867

A pause in population growth. Desolation, majority of Palestine is vacant. [Arab migration would resume later on, as Zionists begin cultivating the deserted land].

Travelers, writers, including C. F. Volney in the 1700s, Alexander Keith in the 1800s, described Palestine as desolate, empty, waste land. Mark Twain, in “The Innocents Abroad,” 1867, wrote: “Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes …desolate and unlovely…” (though Jews always had some continuous presence for thousands of years.)


1886

First attack of Arabs on a Jewish settlement was in Petach Tikva (which was the first settlement in modern day Israel-Palestine), in March of 1886.


1914


Incitement. the periodical Falastin – with its extremist Arab nationalist slant – was abolished by the Ottoman authorities because of its racist hate propaganda.


1917

On Nov 2, 1917, The British issued the Balfour Declaration, promising a “National Home” for the Jews in Palestine.



1920

Seeds of conflict:
Arabs attack Jews in Jerusalem & in Safed 1920-1921. Better known as “riots.”
During the year, 142 pogroms and 36 lesser riots occur against the Jews. It was carried out due to incitement by [later known as the Mufti] Haj Muhammad Amin al-Husseini who began accumulating wealth and power.
He was the de-facto “founder” of the Arab-Israeli conflict.


1922

* All out Arab immigration (from Syria, Egypt, etc.) into the historic homeland of the Jews started mainly in the 1800’s, however, a significant upsurge occurred since 1922 as Zionists changed the face of the deserted land.
President Roosevelt [in criticizing British White Papers restricting Jewish immigration] concluded in 1939 that “Arab immigration into Palestine since 1921 has vastly exceeded the total Jewish immigration during the whole period.”

From a speech by John W. McCormack of Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1939: “as 150000 Jews and an equal number of Arabs have entered the country since that time, and there are still large stretches of vacant land in the country capable of development and settlement by large population.”


* In July 1922, Churchill White Paper separates Transjordan from area designated for creation of Jewish homeland and links Jewish immigration to “economic capacity of the country.”

As a continuing policy of appeasing the Arabs, 75% of the area of Palestine was taken away from the Jews and the Emirate of Transjordan was created, later to become Jordan. First the British, then the Arabs banned the entry of Jews from the area. This put those communities of Arabs in Transjordan and even the Judean desert who were of Jewish ancestry in an awkward position.

* The British mandatory authorities disregarded al-Husseini’s record of instigation to violence against Jews and against Arabs [he was convicted by the British for his role in 1920’s rampage] who didn’t follow his dictating hateful line, and appointed him grand mufti in 1922.


1929

First ‘Arab on Jews’ massacre in a clear attempt of annihilation, was the Hebron massacre in 1929, incited by the Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini who called to “Kill the Jews everywhere. This pleases Allah.” That was the foundation of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The 1929 riots were accompanied by militant Arab slogans such as: ‘Palestine is our land and the Jews our dogs…’ among the details of the brutality, small children were tortured by their murderers before being murdered. Women raped. Old Rabbis were castrated with their students before being slain.

Arabs attacked Jews in Safed as well.
[The mufti ferociously opposed to any form of cooperation between Jews and Arabs, which the fledging Zionist movement was trying actively to promote.]

Ever since the 1920’s, bigotry has been fomented.
[
From a PEW poll as recent as 2009: 90% of Middle East views Jews unfavorably.]


1930

In Oct. 1930, Passfield White Paper limits Jewish immigration to Palestine and forbids Jewish land purchases.
Arab immigration, on the other hand, flows into Jews’ historic land without interruption.


1936-9

* For almost three years (1936-39) there was a general Arab uprising & “riots” led by al-Husseini, thousands of Arabs were killed by the British, Arabs murdered & beaten Jews.
Among the highlights are: On April 19, 1936, Arab rioters carried out the ‘Jaffa Massacre.’
In 1938, Arabs massacre Jews in Tiberias.
The Tiberias (today part of the State of Israel) massacre took place on October 2, 1938 during the 1936–1939 Arab “revolt” in ‘Palestine,’ as they went from village to village, while shouting ‘Death to the English.’
Arabs murdered twenty Jews –among them 11 children– in Tiberias after infiltrating the Kiryat Shmuel settlement.

* In May 1939, MacDonald White Paper strictly limits Jewish immigration and prohibits Jews from purchasing Arab land.

* Al-Husseini (Mufti) flees to Iraq and then to Nazi Germany.


1941

The [non-Aryan, Arab] Mufti meets with Adolph Hitler (who –although– considered the Arabs, an inferior monkey-type “race,” yet managed to use him against the Jews) in 1941 [at times he’s called the ‘Fuhrer of the Arab world’], his parties & youth groups in Palestine are fascists, [since 1936, existed Nazi type “storm troopers” with the youth’s oath of: “Life — my right; independence — my aspiration; Arabism — my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness.” The Palestine two Arab para-military groups: “Futuwwa” & “Najjadah” were active under the mufti at least up to 1947 — cited in a 1947 CIA report document] he plots in his pact with the nazi leader, to massacre Jews on a big scale.
In his post-World War II memoir the Mufti wrote: “Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: The Jews are yours.”
He agitates –in that year– the Arabs, in Nazi oriented Iraq, to attack the Jews, many innocent Jews fall victims in the Farhud (pogrom in Baghdad), by the Arab-Islamic [Hitler-Youth group type] “futuwwa,” led attack.
Later on, in 1943, he will lead a Nazi SS [Bosnian] Muslim army [to commit crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing] against the Christian Serbs.


1947

June 1947, Blutan (Bludan) Syria. Arab League formation. A collective Arab “Jihad” (holy war) invasion by Arab nations is being plotted, to wipe off the Jewish-Palestine, soon to be called (again) Israel.

1948

* Arabs reject U.N. partition for a “two state solution” [even Haim Weizmann’s declaration of accepting a Jewish state even with the size of a tablecloth], the Zionists, however, agree, for the first time in (around) 2,000 Years, a Jewish (albeit non-religious, nor is its legal system Jewish) leadership is in its historic place back again.

* First attempt by the Arabs to ‘eradicate’ Israel, was right after its re-establishment (through the U.N.). The Mufti in 1947, when Israel was declared a state: “I declare a holy war, my Moslem brothers! Murder the Jews! Murder them all.” In 1948. Five Arab armies attacked, with Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League announcing ahead, “This will be a war of extermination, a momentous massacre, which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades.

* Arab leaders ‘create’ the Palestinian-refugee problem, by urging them to leave, as they are (bragging) about to ethnic cleanse the land out of the Jews.
Ever since, these persecuted victims of Arabs (“brothers”), have been used as nothing but a toy, in Arabs’ war against Israel.
[Arab-Palestinians willingness to play along, is one of their first self-inflicted wounds].

* Close to 1,000,000 Jews, indigenous to the Middle East (after Jews dwelling there for generations) are being expelled, as Arab racism grows. (The Jewish Nakba).

* Jordan occupies Jerusalem [May 28], divides the Holy city, expels ethnic-cleanses Jews, applies an ‘apartheid’ rule. It lasted till Israel’s victory which liberated and unified the city.


1950’s

1952 saw the first phenomenon in what now would be called terrorism, the 1950’s 1960’s Arab fidayeen raids against Israeli citizens & property.
[Worth mentioning, that when encountered by Bedouin –instead of Zionist– guards, the infiltrators have not seen mercy, to say the least, ‘Arab brotherhood.’]
In October 1959, Arafat co-founds Fatah terror group, the “Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine.”



1956


Amids backing and encouraging the Arab Fedayeen attacks, pan-Arab “leader,” Nasser of Egypt, surprises the world as he nationalizes the Suez canal, which was owned by British and French stockholders. While France and Britain had economic interest, Israel feared [again] to be overrun by Arab nations.




1961


Ahmad Shukairy (the Mufti‘s aide during WW2 when they collaborated with the Nazis) begins the vilification of Israel at the United Nations, including (already then, yes that’s right, who said, anti-Israel slandering has anything to do with what Israel does or does not?) with an “apartheid” slur.
He was also [the only known personality on the world, at that time who] “protested” the A. Eichmann trial in that speech.

In 1962, he identifies himself with Nazi groups in Argentina.
He had a long history of propagandists tirade, and was already arrested in Lebanon for anti-Western incitement in the 1930s.


1964

The beginning of the era of the Arab immigrants (or their children) adopting the title “Palestinians” as an exclusive name (instead of plain Arabs or S. Syrians) as a political “defintion,” with the creation of the
PLO.

For example, Ahmad Shukairy (the first PLO chairman) in 1956 clarified to the U.N. that they are Arabs, not Palestinians, but by 1964 he & other leaders have changed and began claiming they are the real “Palestinians”…

1964

January 1964: Creation of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), with Fatah as its main faction.
Fatah terror attacks started in January 1965, between 1965-1967: Numerous Fatah bomb attacks target Israeli villages, water pipes, railroads. Homes are destroyed and Israelis are killed. In July 1968: Fatah joins and becomes the dominant member of the PLO, an umbrella organization of Palestinian terrorist groups. On Feb. 4, 1969: Arafat is appointed Chairman of the Executive Committee of the
PLO.
On Oct. 21, 1996, Arafat said “We know only one word – jihad. jihad, jihad, jihad…”
In July 2000, Arafat rejected a peace settlement [leading to a “Palestinian” state] offered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.



1967

In 1967, Egypt’s pan-Arab leader Nasser declared, a few days before the six-day war, “Our main task is to destroy Israel.” Syria’s Assad: “It is time to embark on a war of annihilation.” Cairo Radio announced: “All Egypt is now prepared to plunge into total war which will put an end to Israel.” Radio Damascus exhorted: “Throw them into the sea.” Jordan’s king Hussein broadcast this to his army: “Kill the Jews wherever you find them. Kill them with your arms, with your hands, with your nails and teeth.” Throughout the streets of Damascus, Cairo and Amman the frenzied mob marched chanting: “idhbah, idhbah, idhbah, idhbah al-yahud” – (slaughter, slaughter, slaughter the Jews!) A. Shukairy “predicted” that no Jews in Palestine will survive…
The world is stunned at the miracle of tiny Israel pushing off Goliath Arab attack.
It also resulted in a knee-jerk resentment in the Arab world.


1968

July 1968: First act of air piracy against Israel; El Al airliner hijacked en route from Rome to Tel Aviv by PLO terrorists.


1970

Terrorism organized, among the highlighted first attacks: The Avivim school bus massacre in 1970, which resulted in killing 12 (9 of whom were children), and wounding 24.
The chain of Arab-Islamic terror picks-up, with targeting Jews in the area or in the world.

* On September 7, 1970, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked three planes “to call special attention to the Palestinian problem.” – Dawning an era of international hijacking as a ‘Palestinian struggle.’

The PLO, from Jordan to Lebanon.
* The PLO is chased out of Jordan.
It will start stirring trouble in Lebanon, instead.
To avenge the expulsion from Jordan, the
PLO founded a secretive front group, Black September. Black September’s first victim was Jordanian Prime Minister.
Jordan massacres thousands of Arab Palestinians (Y.
Arafat claimed that Jordan killed between 10,000 to 25,000 in September 1970), for creating turmoil, attacking the government, hijacking airlines, etc.


1972

The Olympics cold blooded massacre of Israel’s sports team in Munich 1972 by Arab Palestinian terrorists, marked a turning point in getting the world’s attention to Arab terrorism.

All in all, the Arab-Palestinian actions, since the late 1960’s-early 1970’s, already defined its path by anti-civilian warfare.


1973

The same sentiments of ‘total annihilation of 1967’ echoes in 1973, (like: “Throw the Jews into the sea.”) the Yom Kippur war takes Israelis off guard, Israel suffers initially great losses but manages to regain it’s control/win over the Arabs, again, within the course of a few days.

Syrian Minister of Defense Mustafa Tlas told the Syrian National Assembly in December 1973 of the following example of “supreme valor” by Syrian troops:
There is the outstanding case of a recruit from Aleppo who murdered 28 Jewish soldiers all by himself, slaughtering them like sheep. All of his comrades in arms witnessed this. He butchered three of them with an ax and decapitated them….He struggled face to face with one of them and throwing down his ax managed to break his neck and devour his flesh in front of his comrades. This is a special case. Need I single it out to award him the Medal of the Republic. I will grant this medal to any soldier who succeeds in killing 28 Jews, and I will cover him with appreciation and honor his bravery.


October 16, 1973, OPEC Led by Saudi Arabia, announced the Arab oil embargo on western countries as a strategic part of the ‘Yom Kippur War,’ to use oil as a weapon.

As Arab nations boycotted Israel, corporations and nations had to agree to Arab demands and not do business with Israel, Arab dictators, terrorist nations/groups, extorted financial benefits or/and political concessions.

The collapse in the oil cartel in the 1980’s; the disunity in the Arab world; Israel’s well advanced high tech market & Israeli consumer market has, weakened somewhat the ‘Arab oil weapon.’



1975

Racist Arabs’ first campaign, of instilling in world’s mind the idea that Zionism [which is about Jews’ return to their homeland] should be regarded as “racism,” in 1975, at the UN through the Arab nations’ lobby, and forcing African nations (who many are still ‘slaves’ to their market and power) to go along.

Ever since, the dreadful idea of shouting “racism” grew as a pattern at any defensive action Israel ever takes against Arab
racist attacks.

It relies heavily on an assuming image of a poor disadvantaged Arab-Palestinian being persecuted by a paler skinned Israeli.
Though, in reality, most Israelis are “brown,” children of those that have been chased out by bigoted Arabs, in middle-east countries since 1948.
Note: Today, in pluralistic multi-racial democratic Israel there are also a great number of black Ethiopian Jews, very visible in security employment. There are no Jews at all, inside ‘purely-Arab’ Palestinian zones, if there’s true ethnic cleansing in the area, it can be found on the Arab side, including in Arab-Palestine.


1976

Palestinian Muslims (Arafat’s
PLO, Syrians and other Muslims), massacre 582 Christians in Damour Lebanon, in a very Islamic spirit of “Allah u Akbar!” and offering a “Holocaust to Muhammad.” It draws a payback by the Christian Phalanges in 1982 in Sabra Shatila (headed by Elie Hobeika, whose fiancee got murdered in Damour), that latter incident has been used in Arab anti-Israel propaganda to blame the Jews for Arab on Arab killings.

150,000 Christians were killed during the war with Muslims since 1975, the Arab Palestinians’ fault in it is major [backing Muslims against Christians].


1979

* The Islamic revolution of January 1979 in Iran impacted the entire region, the oppressive Mullahcracy dictatorship set out to a Shiite expansionism with a vocal anti-western-ism spearheaded by proclaiming the U.S. as the “great Satan” and Israel as the “little one” [its off shoot] (more).

* In March 1979, after a great sacrifice by Israel’s Menachem Begin in giving ‘Yamit‘ to Egypt, uprooting its residents, almost two years after Egypt‘s Sadat came over (November 1977) for a visit in Jerusalem, a peace deal was signed between the two countries.
However, the ugly extreme anti-Jewish pro-violence incitement in Egypt never stopped.

Like every government in Israel’s history, he declared the desire to live in peace with all Arab states. Begin agreed to return to Egypt the strategically critical Sinai — 91 percent of the territory won by Israel during the Six-Day War — in exchange for Sadat’s promise to make peace.
By a strategic give away, giving over the land to Egypt, Israel’s risks included returning to vulnerable areas used by enemies as launching pads for attacks, in addition, it also relinquished direct control of its shipping lanes to and from Eilat, 1,000 miles of roadways, homes, factories, hotels, health facilities and agricultural villages.



1981

On June 7, 1981 Israel carried out the daring air strike destroying Iraq’s nuclear reactor ‘Osirak‘ in an impressive operation, coded “Opera.”

This changed dramatically Saddam’s Iraqi status as a menace. The enormous impact on overall regional stability. As well as on coalition forces’ invasion of 2003.


1982

After a long history of bloody attacks by Arab Palestinians based in Lebanon, Israel is forced to enter Lebanon [‘Peace for the Galilee‘] with an aim to destroy
PLO‘s military capability.
In August 21, 1982 PLO evacuated Lebanon.
Israel is [initially] welcomed by many in Lebanon as ‘liberators,’ as the Arab-Palestinians have been prompting more violence between Muslims and Christians.
Sadly enough, the Islamic Republic of Iran founds a militia “Party of Allah” Hezbollah, its goal, establishing a clearly Islamic (totalitarian, oppressive) Shia state in the entire area, with the eradication of Israel.
Hezbollah will use terrorism against Israel, and adopt a tactic of using
human shields in order to cause civilian casualties, 18 Years later, a group of ‘4 Mothers’ peace activists in Israel will force its government to withdraw from Lebanon.

Background: Hezbollah –asides from being an extended arm of Iran– is backed by Syria, it is largely funded through blood diamonds (in Africa), drug trafficking & other illegal activities (among Arabs) in Latin America, its bloody record in violence include: Bombing American & French peacekeepers in Lebanon & the US embassy in that country (1983), kidnapping & torture, bombing shopping centers in Paris (1985/1986), hijacking airlines, targeting Israeli civilians, stirring violence in Iraq, Afghanistan & Somalia. Its leader H. Nassrallah had an ‘honesty outburst’ in Oct. (published in Oct/23) 2002, when he said: “If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (More).


1987

First Arab-Palestinian “intifada,” attacking Israeli civilians in all methods possible, sending its youth throwing rocks [that kill] while, often armed adults hide behind these kids. Arab-Muslim Palestinian children are being indoctrinated into a death cult of Jihadism and Shahidism.

The use of children in the war –human bombs and human shields– becomes a routine. [‘Arafat‘s children’]

Palestinian propaganda becomes powerful, as adults shoot live ammunition behind little children’s shoulders, the TV picks up only the images of children throwing rocks VS Israeli soldiers firing back… a twisted around “David VS Goliath.” [When a picture is not worth a thousand words].

Official Arab-Palestinian TV & religious figures incite to violence, it demonizes Jews as “animals.” (“Supported” by radical Islamic theory of seeing Christians as pigs and Jews as apes).

[Examples of incitement: July 2000: “The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until you will fight the Jews and kill them” (Dr. Ahmed Yousuf Abu Halabiyah, member of the Palestinian Sharia [Islamic religious law] Rulings Council, and Director of Advanced Studies, the Islamic University, PA TV, July 28, 2000), October 2000: “Kill them all… we won’t leave a single Jew here.” (Young Girl, PA TV, Oct. 22, 2000), September 2004: “The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!” (Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris, Head of Association for Memorizing the Quran, PA Ministry of Endowments & Religious Affairs, PA TV, September 10, 2004), January 2005: “…and the rock and the tree will say: Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” (Dr. Hassan Khater, founder of Al Quds Encyclopedia PA TV, January 10, 2005).

Palestinian TV – Suliman Sutari, before thousands of chanting fanatics. (July 8, 2005): “Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists. They’re [Allah’s] enemies and the enemies of the religion. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t even leave one.” Little Girl on Palestinian T V: “But I march quickly toward my death.” Little boy on Palestinian T V: “… And we swear to take vengeful blood from our enemies for our killed and wounded.” Muslim cleric Muhsen Abu ‘Ita told Al-Aqsa TV: “The annihilation of the Jews here in Palestine is one of the most splendid blessings for Palestine. This will be followed by a greater blessing, Allah be praised, with the establishment of a Caliphate.” Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris: “Kill A Jew –Go To Heaven” The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!”
From a Fatah/PA TV Nazi-Like Sermon in 2010: “Fight The Jews & Kill Them — They Are Enemies Of Humanity & Allah”].


Note:
Palestinians (like
Hezbollah) “document” every defensive action by Israel, where the Arabs manage to cause civilian deaths, as “Israeli massacres.”


1991

* Saddam Hussein, the ‘Butcher of Baghdad’ (nicknamed as such for his extraordinary record [in recent history] of mass-murder, mass-torture) invades Kuwait, the U.S. attacks Iraq, Saddam, in return, takes on Israel –for being U.S. ally– with a rain of scuds missiles, fear in Israel and abroad (as it’s still “fresh” – a merely 3 Years after the racist cruel pan-Arab leader gassed his Kurdish population). Miraculously there are no casualties.


1993

* The Oslo agreement between Israel & the Arab-Palestinians proved to be typical of such negotiations where the demands & pressure is put solely on Israel – the one struggling against Arab initiated violence.
The result, not only did it slow down but it rather increased, Arab-Palestinian campaign of violence against Israeli civilians only stepped up mobilization, motivation rose, attacks intensified. Causing frustration among Israelis, Rabin is seen as endangering lives, which led a lone gunman to assassinate him later on.

* When the Oslo Agreements allowed the Palestinian Authority (PA) to print their own resources, it opted to use the Jordanian texts in their original forms. This was the start of the process of incitement. The starting mottos was rewriting history, de-legitimizing Israel’s right to exist, “Palestine” is part of pan-Islamic nation.

The hate industry, instilling flaming-hatred in the young, has become one of the foundations in their overall child-abuse crimes, in a culture of using its children as weapons, child soldiers.

[Textbooks of hate:
Some excerpts from the Arab racism & Islamic bigotry teaching: “The return of the Jews to Palestine and permitting them to establish a Jewish State contradicts history.” (Our Country Palestine from the introduction, pg. ix) – The book is dedicated to: “those who are battling for the expulsion of the enemy from our land!” (Our Country Palestine) – “There will be a Jihad and our country shall be freed. This is our story with the thieving conquerors. You must know, my boy, that Palestine is your grave responsibility.” (Our Arabic Language) – “Remember: The final and inevitable result will be the victory of the Muslims over the Jews.” (Our Arabic Language) – “The honorable soul has two objectives: Achieving death and honor.” (Abd al-Rahim Mahmud’s Song of the Martyr, Sixth Grade) – “The Martyr rejoices in the paradise that Allah has prepared for him.” (Islamic Education for Seventh Grade) – “The Jews claim that this is one of the places belonging to them and call it “The Western Wall”, but this is not so.” (Reader and Literary Texts for Eighth Grade) – “Racism: Mankind has suffered from this evil both in ancient as well as in modern times, for, indeed, Satan has, in the eyes of many people, made their evil actions appear beautiful.Such a people are the J–s.” (Islamic Education for Eighth Grade) – “Lessons to be learned. One must beware of the J–s, for they are treacherous and disloyal.” (Islamic Education for Ninth Grade) – “Subject for Composition: How are we going to liberate our stolen land? Make use of the following ideas: Arab unity, genuine faith in Allah, most modern weapons and ammunition, using oil and other precious natural resources as weapons in the battle for liberation.” (Our Arabic Language for Seventh Grade) – “Martyred Jihad fighters are the most honored people, after the Prophets.” (Reading And Literary Texts for Tenth Grade) – “The clearest examples of racist belief and racial discrimination in the world are Nazism and Zionism.” (The Contemporary History of the Arabs and the World).]


1994

* July, 1994, The Iranian arm ‘
Hezbollah‘ bombs the civilian Jewish center in Argentina [AMIA, the terror group also attacked the embassy in that country 2 years prior], massacring 85 and wounding 300.
The Iranian Imam Mohsen Rabbani says (in Argentina, at the aftermath of the bombing): “Israel must disappear from the face of the Earth.”
The terror attack by Arab-Muslims on Jews in the diaspora, heightened the alert, internationally.

* Oct. 1994, Israel’s Y. Rabin signs a peace treaty with Jordan, the Palestinian-Arab masses inside Jordan (who make up 60% of Jordanians) and in Israel/Palestine area are angered, Hamas vows to continue its campaign of violence “anywhere in the world.”

[As with the “peace-treaty” with Egypt, anti-Jewish campaign, is relentless (
more).]


2000

Second Intifada.
A planned renewal of another wave of bloody violent Intifada was in place, an opportunity to “let it out” came about when Sharon visited the Jewish temple mount, Muslims seized the opportunity to “protest” Sharon’s visit in “their holy place.”
All is fair play to be exploited for terrorism against Israelis. It’s own population: women, children. Even ambulances.


Arafat now had a “perfect” title, in order to galvanize global Islamic support, his people named it the “Al Aqsa Intifada.” The Al-Aqsa is of course the mosque, which Muslims build on top of the historic Jewish temple.
It was boosted up by a staged video, therein an Arab boy Muhammad al-Dura –who as exposed later on as being– shot by Arabs, was mistakenly pinned on Israel. Al-Dura becomes a symbol and an icon and motivates to more violence.

* The Ramallah brutal lynch of 2 Israelis –who lost their way– by Arab Palestinian masses and its police in public square, the sheer animalism of mutilating and “playing” with their body parts while screaming in inhuman ways, revealed the real face of mainstream Arab-Muslim Palestine.
They were describe by a British journalist eyewitness: “they were like animals.” The Italian crew who filmed the crime was threatened by
Arafat‘s people.

(Suicide) Genocide bombings rise, targeting ‘where civilians gather the most,’ to kill as many unarmed Jews as possible.

Among the perpetrators of terror attacks:
Hamas, (Iran’s) Islamic Jihad, Tanzim, Fatah’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade [still (2010) exist under Abu Mazen].

A rise of the use of children, use-of-civilians tactics “succeeds” in making Israel look bad.


2001

* Demonization of Israel takes an open anti-Semitic tone at that infamous racist Arab control gathering in Durban in denouncing Zionism (an Arab writer described the Arabs as “racists cry racism“), the Arabs passed along anti Jewish hateful pamphlets at the United Nations.

First vicious successful propaganda of adopting the slur “apartheid” to Israel’s equal democratic state, it followed the above “racism” slur on Zionism.
Arab Palestinian Marwan Bishara published a book (in 2002) “Israel, peace or apartheid.”

The idea behind it was/is to equate any understandable action by Israeli security as “racist” and de-legitimizing its existence just as S. Africa was at the apartheid (segregation between blacks & whites) era, while in fact, there’s no separation between Jews and Arabs (who make up 25% of equal citizens) in Israel, and Jews are required to get through check points just as Arabs do, security tactics are regional, where terrorism is more frequent, nothing “racial.”
Not only are Arabs equal citizens in voting, being elected in government, but have often more rights than Israeli Jews, as they’re exempt from military services without having an effect on their equal benefits as Israeli Jews have, there’s also a policy of affirmative action to empower Arabs.

In 100% apartheid Arab-Palestine, no Jews are allowed to live in.
Not to mention the Arab, Islamic worlds, where real apartheid is rampant against minorities.
Worth reminding that it was A. Shukairy in 1961 at the UN who already came up with the “apartheid” false thesis.
A major boost got the “apartheid” slur, through a (2006) book by Jimmy Carter with a title almost identical to M. Bishara’s, Carter who was always pro Arabism and pro Islamism on the expense of the west, including in Iran, and has been blamed for the change in that country towards the current oppressive Islamic Republic regime resulting in so many crimes on the millions of its citizens since 1979.

Even though, Jimmy Carter himself admitted on CNN (Dec, 12, 2006): “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.” Yet he accepted Arab lobby’s money to write that hate book.

* Ordinary Arab Palestinians show their true face of “humanity” by celebrating –dancing, singing, giving out candies to children– the 9/11 Islamic massacre upon 3,000 innocent people in the U.S.


2002

* The height of homicide bombers‘ frequency – between 2002-2005, striking from Tel Aviv to Naharia, from Jerusalem to Be’er Sheva, targeting mostly the innocent unarmed civilians, aboard crowded buses, at bus stops, markets, restaurants, cafeterias, family gatherings, crowds of children, etc. Leaving a long trail of blood of the innocent.
“Joy” on Arab-Palestine streets, dance & jubilation at every major bloody massacre the Arab-Muslims carry out.

*
Pallywood –the term coined due to Palestinian-Arabs’ fake images, fake “reports” industry– steps up with “advanced” lies.
As the Israeli army conducts its anti-terror action in Jenin, where bombers, attackers operate from, the humane IDF is risking its lives, the careful soldiers go from door to door in search of weapons and wanted individuals, all that doesn’t prevent the Palestine authority to stream false reports, of “hundreds” dead in a “massacre” that never was… some were caught faking a “funeral,” they’ve even added dead bodies from a cemetery to the Jenin site to inflate the numbers at the “massacre.”
After the facts [real casualties numbering 50 plus, mostly terrorists, not “
civilians“] were finally revealed, no Arab-Palestinian representative bothered to apologize, PA’s Saeb Erekat simply avoided the question by a [TV, ABC] reporter as to their claims of “500” dead…
On the contrary, the Arab-Palestine leadership have learned that it works pretty well: to lie, smear, before the facts come out, never ever paying for their anti-Israel falsification.
Thus, it will be repeated, again and again, by every Israeli action, to their advantage, still.


2005

* Israel gives away Gaza to the Arab Palestinians, as it roots out Jews from their homes in a most dramatic (non violent) way, this causes not a moderation on the Arab side, on the contrary, Islamic Jihadi Hamas rises as “victorious,” again [like all Israel’s concessions], the Arab side’s taking Israel’s sacrifice for peace as “weakness.”

* The patron of
Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s president M. Ahmadinejad (1) calls for Israel to be wiped off map, (2) he also claims that he “denies” the holocaust and (3) pursues nuclear weapons.
In 2007, he said: ‘Israel, US will soon die.’

Note: Regarding Ahmadinejad’s use of Arab-Palestinians. Iran’s Islamic Republic is not very fond of the Arabs, in fact it has frictions with S. Arabia & it persecutes its Arab minority (true, the fascist regime oppresses all, but minorities are subject to extra “special treatment”).

* To get a sense of Arab racism in most “moderate” countries, a PEW poll found in 2005 that most Jordanians viewed Jews unfavorably, none has viewed Jews favorably.


2006

Hezbollah attacks Israel [its missiles reach deep inside Israel], it “improves” Palestinian tactics of using civilians, by firing rockets upon Israeli civilians (in major Israeli cities/towns) from among populated density locations, then, cowardly escaping the area, causing Israelis to fire back. The intended Lebanese casualties cause an uproar in the Arab world, Hezbollah comes out as “heroes.”


2007

Mainstream Arabs in Gaza go radical, vote for totalitarian Islamic party Hamas to become their “democratically elected government.”

A major gathering follows, where thousands of Arab-Palestinians (with a Hamas spokesman) declare they want an Islamic Caliphate.


[About ‘Caliphate’ (Khilafah):
The intention, endlessly repeated, is the establishment of a primitive, messianic caliphate — redeeming Islam and dominating the world.
For radical Islam’s goal is global conquest. The Caliphate: One nation, under Allah, with 1.5 billion Muslims …It would do away with national boundaries and stretch from Indonesia to Morocco.
The ‘Muslim brotherhood’ aims for it and its Islamists who assassinated Anwar el-Sadat in 1981 decorated their holding cages with banners proclaiming the “caliphate or death.”
It’s Al-Qaeda’s grand plan, as its chiefs revealed ‘world domination design’ to take over the world and turn it into an Islamic state the establishment of the “caliphate,” an Islamic super-state that would be ruled according to a Taliban-like version of Islamic totalitarian with strict ‘implementation of pure Islamic doctrine.’ Barak Obama (August, 2007): “They [Muslim extremists] kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.”
]

Christians, the tiny minority among the Arabs, who have been subject to persecution by the Islamic majority (Islamic apartheid?), especially since the reign of Y.
Arafat, saw a major rise in oppression with the ascend of Hamas, a number of Christian institutions and members have been attacked or/and threatened.


Hamas backgrounder:
The Jihadi party, has been involved in major anti Israel attacks, its charter calls for the destruction of Israel, its leaders often declare
(including on “moderate” Fatah TV) their desire to annihilate Jews, a sample video showed a Hamas-nick vowing to “drink the blood of the Jews.” In 2007 Hamas’ Mickey Mouse’ (“martyr”) character is teaching Kids to hate and kill, in 2008 On Hamas TV, a toy rabbit who vows to ‘eat Jews’ has being used by Hamas to encourage Palestinian children for violence. Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Sheik Ahmad Bahr from Hamas, declared during a Friday Sermon at a Sudan Mosque that America and Israel Will Be Annihilated and Called upon Allah to Kill the Jews and the Americans ‘to the Very Last One.’ (More.)


A 2007 Poll: 75% of (all) Palestinians do not think that Israel has the right to exist.


* Israel’s first Arab president. M. Whbee is briefly serving Israel’s acting president. Israel is indeed a multi-racial, multi-religious democracy.
Vs. Arab-Islamic apartheid systems, where all minorities are oppressed..



2008

After 8 years of firing missiles into Israel by Arab-Palestinian leadership – Hamas, especially targeting children (programmed at certain hours when they go to/leave school) in Sderot, Israel decided it had enough, it kicks off ‘Cast lead.‘ Risking the lives of its soldiers in conducting operations against terrorists and weapons stock-piling inside Gaza, and warning the residents to evacuate (clear the way, and move to other areas) before hand. Yet, it was still condemned.
By now, Hamas is not shy in bragging of using children as human shields.


2010

Flotilla jihad
Arab Muslim anti-Israel propaganda picks up steam,
as the current motto is to “make Jews look bad” so they can justify their hatred and create the foundation for their intended ultimate goal of genocide.

A supposed “peace activism” designed to help the
Hamas in Gaza who have been blockaded (after their continuous attacks on Israel’s civilians, in order to stop their weapon smuggling), has been organizing “aid ships” heading to Gaza and confront Israeli security, [incidentally, there are no “aid ships” heading towards the Egyptian border, though that country has the same blockade on the violent Gaza regime, for no one in the Arab-Islamic world cares about Arab-Palestinians, unless it can hurt Israel, a “sacred” goal by leaders, religious clerics, etc.], one such ship, the Flotilla had a major success in damning Israel’s image, after violently attacking the Israelis (who came aboard to check for weapons), 9 Muslims died, an uproar against Israel came about.
Later on, the true intentions of the Islamists on board were revealed, as they were filmed shouting: ‘kill the Jews for Allah’ and in an earlier defying radio exchange with the Israelis who warned them of entering Israeli territory the response from the Islamists aboard the ship was “Shut up! Go back to Auchwitz!We help the Arabs, Remember 9/11!”
There were also revelations that Islamists planned the entire event as “martyrdom.”

The Flotilla was organized by the radical Islamic Turkish group IHH, tied to terrorism, Turkish president Mr. Erdogan who’s representing the Islamic party (linked to the Flotilla), was looking for some time to break his country’s alliance with Israel. He also objected to UN’s sanctions against
Iran for not complying with regards to its nuclear program.
Radicalization of Turkey, in an already volatile region.
In 2011, the UN justified Israel’s action on the Flotilla as well as its blockade against Gaza’s Hamas. Which infuriated Turkey even more.


2011

* September 9, 2011, Arab-Muslim mob in Cairo, Egypt attack the Israeli embassy while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” A CNN [which is never accused of being pro-Israel] reporter described them “they were animals.”
It was following an uprising that toppled the Mubarak regime (where by, at the celebration, hundreds of Arabs, in public, sexually attacked CBS reporter Lara Logan screaming “Jew, Jew!”) the rise of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood” and anti-Israel incitement. A BBC journalist also described how he was subject to anti-Semitism in that country, during this period.

* September 13. Maen Areikat
PLO‘s ambassador to the U.S. declares in Washington D.C. a future “Palestine” State should be “Jew free” (judenrein). This ethnic – religious cleansing (worse than Apartheid) plan causes a major uproar. Especially in light of the intentional REAL apartheid, Vs. Arab-Islamic constant use of the “apartheid slur” unjustifiably.

Note: “Palestinian” PM Mahmoud Abbas’ such racist declaration of a “Palestine” State free of Jews (not even ANY Jews under NATO!) in Cairo on July 28 2010, as well as in Doha on May 28, 2011, caused less of a stir. Particularly, since this 2011 publicized event took place within days before a “Palestinian” plan for a bid at the UN for a separated [all new] State.
Actually, this has always been “Palestinian” stand, A. Shukairy on June 1, 1967: “This is a fight for the homeland-it is either us or the. Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure.”









In short, in 100 Words…


Israel [the multi-racial, equal democracy], its Jewish returnees to their historic homeland, face genocide campaign [at times “just” ethnic cleansing] by Arab-Muslims since the 1920’s. Whether by Arab immigrants, their children – called “Palestinians,” or by [apartheid, almost Judenrein] Arab/Muslim forces [exploiters of Arab-Palestinians] for: power, sheer anti-Jewish hatred [exemplified through dehumanization/incitement], or as part of an overall Jihad towards world domination.
Motivation: Islamic bigotry, Jihad, Arab racism.
The aggressors (Palestinians/Hezbollah) self-made “victims” falsify information/images, define lost battles, casualties resulting from Islamists using civilians (to make humane Israel look bad), as “massacres.”

July 28, 2010 – “Palestinian” racist leader, PM Mahmoud Abbas on a ‘Jew free’ region, even banning Jews under NATO. The “Palestinian” media [PALLYWOOD] later edited the word “Jew” for “Israeli,” though it doesn’t really make sense in the context…



Arab League Tries to Score Points for Abbas, ‘Endorses’ Talks

No outcry at Abbas’s racism? | The Jewish Chronicle
Aug 19, 2010 … Speaking in Cairo on July 28, Abbas gave his version of negotiations with Israel’s former Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert. In the course of his remarks, Abbas made a statement so astonishing that I quote it in full, as reported by Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency: “I’m willing to agree to a third party that would supervise the agreement, such as Nato forces, but I would not agree to having Jews among the Nato forces, or that there will live among us even a single Israeli on Palestinian land.”

Israel Has Always Been A Jewish State | The Jewish Week

Menachem Z. Rosensaft Tuesday, August 30, 2011


While the Obama administration is trying to ward off the Palestinians’ ill-conceived bid for unilateral recognition as an Arab state at the UN General Assembly, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is proving to be as obstructionist and hypocritical as his late predecessor, Yasir Arafat. “Don’t order us to recognize a Jewish state,” Abbas declared last week. “We won’t accept it.”


Never mind that he envisions an Arab Palestine that is Judenrein (that is, free of Jews). “I’m willing to agree to a third party that would supervise [an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement], such as NATO forces, but I would not agree to having Jews among the NATO forces, or that there will live among us even a single Israeli on Palestinian land,” Abbas said in Cairo on July 28, 2010.


Never mind that Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as Mauritanian in West Africa for that matter, are all officially “Islamic Republics,” that Egypt and Syria call themselves “Arab Republics,” that Jordan by its own definition is a “Hashemite,” meaning directly descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, kingdom, and that the website of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia proclaims that country to be “a modern nation that adheres to Islam, honors its Arab heritage and tradition, and presses vigorously forward in the service of Islam ….”


According to Abbas’ Islamocentric geopolitical ethos, Arabs are entitled to a myriad of Muslim states scattered across the Middle East and North Africa, but he will not countenance a single Jewish state in his neighborhood.


In fact, the international community recognized Israel as a Jewish state long before Abbas and his cohorts ever came on the scene.


On Oct. 11, 1947, Hershel V. Johnson, the United States deputy representative to the United Nations, explained at a meeting of the UN Special Committee on Palestine that “as a result of the First World War, a large area of the Near East, including Palestine, was liberated and a number of states gained their independence. The United States, having contributed its blood and resources to the winning of that war, felt that it could not divest itself of a certain responsibility for the manner in which the freed territories were disposed of, or for the fate of the peoples liberated at that time. It took the position that, these peoples should be prepared for self-government and also that a national home for the Jews should be established in Palestine.” (Emphasis added.)


Moreover, Johnson continued, “in 1917 the Government of the United Kingdom, in the statement known as the Balfour Declaration,..

Beware Palestinian apartheid [Ynet, Oct. 4, 2010]
Op-ed: Palestinian leader Abbas seeks to adopt racist policy based on ethnic cleansing of Jews
Jonathan Dahoah Halevi Published:  08.04.10, 00:03
[…]
“I’m willing to agree to a third party that would supervise the agreement, such as NATO forces, but I would not agree to having Jews among the NATO forces, or that there will live among us even a single Israeli on Palestinian land,” he was quoted by Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency.
A state without Jews
The Palestinians intend to demand the implementation of the UN resolution regarding refugees, from a Palestinian perspective, which gives the 5.5 million refugees and their descendants the right of return and to settle in the State of Israel. In his briefing to the Egyptian media, Abbas presented this strategy and denied the Jewish character of Israel. He maintains that Israel should, in fact, become a bi-national state, but on the other hand that Palestine must become a state “clean” of Jews.
The term “Israeli” used by Abbas means “Jew,” as the PA sees Israeli Arabs, Muslims and Christians alike as an integral part of the Palestinian people. The future State of Palestine, according Abbas, must resist any Jewish presence in its territory. In other words, the PA embraces a racist policy – Palestinian apartheid – directed at Jews, based on denial of Jewish history and the cultural and religious linkage of the Jewish people to the land.
The anti-Semitism embodied in Abbas’ words refers also to his position towards the NATO observers’ force that may be deployed in the West Bank to monitor the implementation of the peace agreement with Israel. He is opposed to Jews being included in this force; meaning, he will ask Germany and all other partner countries in NATO to use their own forces in the West Bank, in an effort to the exclude any Jewish soldiers.
He didn’t explain how these countries would determine who is a Jew, whether according to orthodox Jewish laws or just if one of the parents or grandparents was a Jew. But even Saudi Arabia didn’t dare oppose the deployment of American Jewish soldiers on its land during operation Desert Storm (1990-1), and no one in Israel ever demanded to disqualify Muslim soldiers from serving in the international observers’ forces in Lebanon, the Golan Heights and Sinai.
The racist language used by Abbas is particularly despicable as it doubts the loyalty of the Jews to their country. It is for this reason that his comments call for a firm Israeli and European response.
Note: Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency published on July 28 its version of Abbas’ briefing to the Egyptian media, quoting him as saying: “I’m willing to agree to a third party that would supervise the agreement, such as NATO forces, but I would not agree to having Jews among the NATO forces, or that there will live among us even a single Israeli on Palestinian land”. This version was reprinted by Palestinian newspapers al-Quds and al-Hayat al-Jadida on July 30 and by other Arab newspapers.

Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other faith since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was judenrein, or cleansed of Jews, said Elliott Abrams, a former U.S. National Security Council official.

Watching the anti-human-rights of the so-called “Human Rights Watch” when it comes to the Middle East

September 15, 2011

Watching the anti-human-rights of the so-called “Human Rights Watch” when it comes to the Middle East


It is long overdue that this (and others like it) come under scrutiny for being systematically blindly anti-Israel biased, distortion of facts and simply obsessive in singling it out, while covering for Arab-Islamic crimes against humanity. [You know when an orgainaztion is in real trouble, when, even, its founding chairman criticizes it for utter and complete failure].

“Human rights” organizations’ conspiracy-collective war on Israelis’ Human Rights.

It doesn’t matter if its (like the UN) influenced by Arab oil / Lobby, Islamic lobby, Arab “street anger,” or impacted by the powerful mythology of “strong Israel vs. poor weak Arab” – (deriving from a distorted image, naively based on looking at a raw-but-shallow picture of balance-of-armament VS reality, underestimating the Goliath power of “Palestinians” and Hezbollah use of their civilians against cautious and Humane Israel) is the source of it, or if it’s by an individual bigot in charge at HRW.

HRW Founder Bernstein Starts Advancing Human Rights (AHR)

March 03, 2011

Robert Bernstein, the founder and former chairman of Human Rights Watch who publicly renounced his ties with the organization due to distorted and disproportionate focus on free and open Israel at the expense of the rest of the Middle East — mostly unfree — has just launched a new human rights organization, Advancing Human Rights.


Why the need for a new organization? Bernstein, 88, explains:


Some human rights organizations, like Human Rights Watch, do not condemn incitement to genocide, Arab hate speech being spewed daily in Gaza, particularly, and Saudi textbooks being taught to young children calling Jews “monkeys and pigs.” Hate speech is the precursor to genocide.

“Human Rights Watch Coverup”
Jerusalem Post
April 13, 2004
By Anne Bayefsky


When it comes to anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias, Human Rights Watch still has a lot of explaining to do ­ notwithstanding Executive Director Ken Roth’s umbrage at criticism.


Roth, however, volunteers a test of his organization’s reliability when it comes to the Arab-Israeli conflict, namely Human Rights Watch’s behavior at the UN’s infamous “anti-racism” conference held in Durban, shortly before 9/11. If the organization’s actions were assailable there, he says, it would make “it easy to reject the objectivity of Human Rights Watch reports on Israeli conduct.”


It is a test that Human Rights Watch fails hands down. I know because I was there as the representative of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (IAJLJ). Roth himself did not attend.
Just prior to the conference Roth telegraphed his convictions in an interview on US National Public Radio, August 14, 2001, when he said about the pending controversy and the effort to focus attention on Israel: “Clearly Israeli racist practices are an appropriate topic.”
So in the lead-up to Durban, Human Rights Watch fanned the flames of racial intolerance ­ notwithstanding that ‘s citizens are one-quarter Arab and enjoy democratic rights they have nowhere else in the Arab world, while neighboring Arab states are Judenrein.


At Durban one role of Human Rights Watch was to exclude the representative of Jewish lawyers and jurists from over 40 countries. Here’s what happened:
As a representative of the IAJLJ, I was a member of the caucus of international human rights nongovernmental organizations. Human Rights Watch, along with others such as Amnesty International and the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights (renamed Human Rights First), was also a member of this caucus. Together we had a right to vote on the final NGO document, and hours before the last session gathered together to discuss our position.
The draft included egregious statements equating Zionism with racism, and alleging that is an “apartheid” state guilty of “genocide and ethnic cleansing designed to ensure a Jewish state.”


As we arrived at our meeting the chief Durban representative of Human Rights Watch, advocacy director Reed Brody, publicly announced that as a representative of a Jewish group I was unwelcome and could not attend. The views of a Jewish organization, he explained, would not be objective and the decision on how to vote had to be taken in our absence. Not a single one of the other international NGOs objected.


THE HUMAN Rights Watch role at Durban? To inhibit Jewish lawyers and jurists from being fairly represented or defended.


Later that afternoon, my colleague Daniel Lack and I insisted on entering the meeting, but their minds were made up. In the face of the flagrant anti-Semitism all around them the group, including HRW had decided neither to approve nor disapprove of the final declaration, and not to vote.
 
Instead the international NGOs, including HRW planned to introduce an introductory paragraph that would cast the document as a legitimate collection of the “voices of the victims.”


In the evening, as the declaration was considered, a motion was made to delete draft language that had come from the Jewish NGO caucus. The Jewish caucus had proposed including a statement that the demonization of and the targeting of Jews for destruction because of their support for was a form of anti-Semitism.


The vote to delete the Jewish caucus’s proposal succeeded and all Jewish organizations from around the world walked out.


What did Human Rights Watch do? The organization said nothing. It made no move to vote. It stayed. Notwithstanding that the Jewish voices had been silenced, two days later at a press conference, HRW (along with Amnesty International, and the Lawyers Committee/Human Rights First) repeated the claim that the “voices of the victims” had legitimately prevailed at the NGO conference. HRW spokesperson Smita Narula said: “The document gives expression to all voices.”


What else did Human Rights Watch do in Durban? It misrepresented the final outcome to the world press.


AFTER THE fact, Human Rights Watch got nervous about the possible reaction of its many Jewish funders. So the cover-up began.
On September 6, 2001 Human Rights Watch spokespersons Reed Brody and Joel Motley wrote in the Conference News Daily that the NGO declaration “marks a major success… and recognizes the scourge of anti-Semitism.”
They neglected to mention that the declaration had redefined anti-Semitism, changing its meaning from the hatred of Jews to something which included “anti-Arab racism.”


Six months later, in February 2002, Human Rights Watch published an update stating: “What really happened at the World Conference Against Racism in Durban? The conference we participated in was completely different from the one covered in American newspapers.”
What else did Human Rights Watch do after Durban? It denied what happened there.


As for Roth’s claim of the organization’s objectivity in reporting on governments throughout the region, one need look no further than its inability ­ despite an annual budget of $22 million ­ to produce a specific report on human rights abuses in a country like Libya, or the relative paucity of attention over the years given to states with appalling human rights records like Saudi Arabia and Syria, as compared to Israel.


So there should be no surprise when HRW wrongly describes as violating international legal norms, for example, by labeling the killing of someone like Sheikh Ahmed Yassin or Ismail Abu Shanab an “assassination” or “liquidation.”


International law does not protect all combatants from being targeted before judicial process, or grant them immunity from military operations when they use civilians as human shields.


Having the courage to speak out against the tide of hate directed at and the Jewish people is not one of the strengths of Human Rights Watch.
When will this leading international human rights NGO stop believing it has to earn its stripes by demonizing Israel, or that to stay in business it must avoid criticizing Israel’s enemies?

Pollak: Human Rights Watch is Biased Against Israel – WSJ.com
Jul 30, 2009 – Double Standards and Human Rights Watch
The organization displays a strong bias against Israel
By NOAH POLLAK
Over the past two weeks, Human Rights Watch has been embroiled in a controversy over a fund raiser it held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. At that gathering, Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson pledged the group would use donations to “battle . . . pro-Israel pressure groups.”

As criticism of her remark poured in, Ms. Whitson responded by saying that the complaint against her was “fundamentally a racist one.” And Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, declared that “We report on Israel. Its supporters fight back with lies and deception.”

The facts tell a different story. From 2006 to the present, Human Rights Watch’s reports on the Israeli-Arab conflict have been almost entirely devoted to condemning Israel, accusing it of human rights and international law violations, and demanding international investigations into its conduct. It has published some 87 criticisms of Israeli conduct against the Palestinians and Hezbollah, versus eight criticisms of Palestinian groups and four of Hezbollah for attacks on Israel. (It also published a small number of critiques of both Israel and Arab groups, and of intra-Palestinian fighting.)

It was during this period that more than 8,000 rockets and mortars were fired at Israeli civilians by Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza. Human Rights Watch’s response? In November 2006 it said that the Palestinian Authority “should stop giving a wink and a nod to rocket attacks.” Two years later it urged the Hamas leadership “to speak out forcefully against such [rocket] attacks . . . and bring to justice those who are found to have participated in them.”

In response to the rocket war and Hamas’s violent takeover of Gaza in June 2007, Israel imposed a partial blockade of Gaza. Human Rights Watch then published some 28 statements and reports on the blockade, accusing Israel in highly charged language of an array of war crimes and human rights violations. One report headline declared that Israel was “choking Gaza.” Human Rights Watch has never recognized the difference between Hamas’s campaign of murder against Israeli civilians and Israel’s attempt to defend those civilians. The unwillingness to distinguish between aggression and self-defense blots out a fundamental moral fact—that Hamas’s refusal to stop its attacks makes it culpable for both Israeli and Palestinian casualties.

Meanwhile, Egypt has also maintained a blockade on Gaza, although it is not even under attack from Hamas. Human Rights Watch has never singled out Egypt for criticism over its participation in the blockade.

The organization regularly calls for arms embargoes against Israel and claims it commits war crimes for using drones, artillery and cluster bombs. Yet on Israel’s northern border sits Hezbollah, which is building an arsenal of rockets to terrorize and kill Israeli civilians, and has placed that arsenal in towns and villages in hopes that Lebanese civilians will be killed if Israel attempts to defend itself. The U.N. Security Council has passed resolutions demanding Hezbollah’s disarmament and the cessation of its arms smuggling. Yet while Human Rights Watch has criticized Israel’s weapons 15 times, it has criticized Hezbollah’s twice.

In the Middle East, Human Rights Watch does not actually function as a human-rights organization. If it did, it would draw attention to the plight of Palestinians in Arab countries. In Lebanon, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are warehoused in impoverished refugee camps and denied citizenship, civil rights, and even the right to work. This has received zero coverage from the organization.

In 2007, the Lebanese Army laid siege to the Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp for over three months, killing hundreds. Human Rights Watch produced two anemic press releases. At this very moment, Jordan is stripping its Palestinians of citizenship without the slightest protest from the organization. Unfortunately, Human Rights Watch seems only to care about Palestinians when they can be used to convince the world that the Jewish state is actually a criminal state.

TNR publishes “Minority Report: Human Rights Watch fights a civil war over Israel”

Minority Report
Human Rights Watch fights a civil war over Israel.
Benjamin Birnbaum April 27, 2010 | 12:00 am


[snip]


With Palestinian suicide bombings reaching a crescendo in early 2002, precipitating a full-scale Israeli counterterrorist campaign across the West Bank, HRW’s Middle East and North Africa division (MENA) issued two reports (and myriad press releases) on Israeli misconduct—including one on the Israel Defense Forces’ assault on terrorist safe havens in the Jenin refugee camp. That report—which, to HRW’s credit, debunked the widespread myth that Israel had carried out a massacre—nevertheless said there was “strong prima facie evidence” that Israel had “committed grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions,” irking the country’s supporters, who argued that the IDF had in fact gone to great lengths to spare Palestinian civilians. (The decision not to launch an aerial bombardment of the densely populated area, and to dispatch ground troops into labyrinthine warrens instead, cost 23 Israeli soldiers their lives—crucial context that HRW ignored.) It would take another five months for HRW to release a report on Palestinian suicide bombings—and another five years for it to publish a report addressing the firing of rockets and mortars from Gaza, despite the fact that, by 2003, hundreds had been launched from the territory into Israel. (HRW did issue earlier press releases on both subjects.)


In the years to come, critics would accuse HRW of giving disproportionate attention to Israeli misdeeds. According to HRW’s own count, since 2000, MENA has devoted more reports to abuses by Israel than to abuses by all but two other countries, Iraq and Egypt. That’s more reports than those on Iran, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Syria, Algeria, and other regional dictatorships. (When HRW includes press releases in its count, Israel ranks fourth on the list.) And, if you count only full reports—as opposed to “briefing papers,” “backgrounders,” and other documents that tend to be shorter, less authoritative, and therefore less influential—the focus on the Jewish state only increases, with Israel either leading or close to leading the tally. There are roughly as many reports on Israel as on Iran, Syria, and Libya combined.


HRW officials acknowledge that a number of factors beyond the enormity of human rights abuses go into deciding how to divide up the organization’s attentions: access to a given country, possibility for redress, and general interest in the topic. “I think we tend to go where there’s action and where we’re going to get reaction,” rues one board member. “We seek the limelight—that’s part of what we do. And so, Israel’s sort of like low-hanging fruit.”


[snip]
[Bernstien and] Edith Everett, a member of both the MENA advisory committee and the HRW board, a former stockbroker, and a philanthropist who has donated millions to aid Druze Arabs in Israel, eventually came to believe that their concerns were falling on deaf ears. For Everett, the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war was a turning point. “Participating on the board became most difficult since [that war],” she recalls. While Everett agreed with some of HRW’s critiques—on Israel’s use of cluster munitions, for example—she took issue with many of the organization’s conclusions, including its reporting on human shield use in Lebanon. (In a 2007 report, HRW insisted that Hezbollah fighters did not shield themselves and their weapons among the local civilian population on a widespread basis.) For a long time, Everett had felt there was a healthy exchange about these issues inside HRW, but that had begun to change. “I felt in recent times there was less of a dialogue,” she says. “It seemed to me that there was a commitment to a point of view—that Israel’s the bad guy here.”


[snip]


Robert James—a businessman, World War II veteran, and member of the MENA advisory committee who has been involved with HRW almost since its inception—calls the group “the greatest NGO since the Red Cross,” but argues that it is chronically incapable of introspection. “Bob is bringing this issue up on Israel,” he says. “But Human Rights Watch has a more basic problem. … They cannot take criticism.”


[snip]


Critics have pointed out that a number of Whitson’s colleagues in MENA—such as Joe Stork, who came to HRW after decades as a leader of the left-wing Middle East Research and Information Project, where he was part of an editorial collective that ran an extremely anti-Israel journal—arrived at the organization with backgrounds in the pro-Palestinian movement. Sid Sheinberg argues that the mere appearance of a biased jury at MENA ill-serves HRW. “Is it smart to have a number of people about which questions can be asked—in either direction?” he says. But, when I asked Whitson about this critique—and, specifically, about a former researcher on Israel who, before starting at HRW, wrote pro-Palestinian dispatches from the West Bank and Gaza describing Israeli soldiers as “protected by arrogance and hatred and a state and an army and the world’s superpower”—she said she didn’t see a problem with this situation. “For people who apply for jobs to be the researcher in Israel-Palestine, it’s probably going to be someone who’s done work on Israel-Palestine with a human rights background,” she explained. “And guess what? People who do work with a human rights background on Israel-Palestine tend to find that there are a lot of Israeli abuses. And they tend to become human rights activists on the issue.” For his part, HRW program director Iain Levine, who oversees the organization’s 16 divisions, acknowledges that people from many divisions—and not just MENA—arrive from “solidarity backgrounds,” but insists that, “when they come to the door of this organization, they park those things behind.”


Whether or not Whitson has done so, she clearly favors a tough approach toward the Jewish state. She has argued that, far from being too harsh toward Israel, HRW is actually too lenient. “[B]elieve me,” she wrote in an e-mail to a MENA advisory committee member, “on israel in particular, we are overly cautious and extremely kid-gloved because of the harassment we endure.” Less definitive—but still arguably revealing—evidence about Whitson’s politics can be found in her opinion of Norman Finkelstein, the activist and avowed Hezbollah supporter who has likened Israel to Nazi Germany. The two became acquainted years ago, and she brought him to HRW to discuss his 2005 book Beyond Chutzpah. (“He had a very mixed reception,” she remembers. “I think people did not find his style particularly persuasive.”) In late 2006, when Finkelstein launched a letter-writing campaign demanding that HRW officials apologize for a press release critical of Palestinian officials (which they eventually did), one HRW observer e-mailed Whitson to share thoughts on Finkelstein’s over-the-top rhetoric. Whitson replied: “I agree w/ u that norm undermines himself and his cause w/ the language he uses, and his anger sometimes gets the better of him and his brilliant mind and generous spirit. I continue to have tremendous respect and admiration for him, because as you probably know, making Israeli abuses the focus of one’s life work is a thankless but courageous task that may well end up leaving all of us quite bitter.”


[snip]


Bernstein also raised some of his concerns with then-HRW board member Richard Goldstone, who would go on to write the U.N.’s much-maligned report on the Gaza war. There are few more reviled figures in Israel right now than Goldstone, but even he sympathized with Bernstein on certain points, such as the politicized nature of the U.N. Human Rights Council, which, after being created in 2006, had directed its first nine condemnations at Israel. In March 2008, barely a year before he accepted UNHRC’s mandate to investigate the Gaza war, he told Bernstein that he thought the body’s performance had been hopeless and expressed ambivalence as to whether HRW should continue appearing before it.


He also agreed with Bernstein that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s increasingly aggressive anti-Israel rhetoric, in combination with his threatening policies, was an issue worthy of HRW’s attention. Goldstone pushed Roth to address it, but to no avail. (When I asked Roth in a February interview at his office about HRW’s refusal to take a position on Ahmadinejad’s threats against Israel, including his famous call for Israel to be “wiped off the map,” Roth quibbled about the way the statement had been translated in the West—“there was a real question as to whether he actually said that”—then told me that it was not HRW’s place to render judgments on such rhetoric: “Let’s assume it is a military threat. We don’t take on governments’ military threats just as we don’t take on aggression, per se. We look at how they behave. So, we wouldn’t condemn a military threat just as we wouldn’t condemn an invasion—we would look at how the government wages the war.” Whitson, who sat in on the interview, offered her two cents: “You know, that statement was also matched by Hillary Clinton saying that the Iranian regime should be destroyed or wiped off the map. Again, so, very similar statements, side by side, close in time.” For his part, Goldstone told TNR that he eventually came around to the view this was not an issue HRW should take up.)

THE SOROS EFFECT


Obama-Sponsor Gives $100M to Anti-Israeli ‘Human Rights Watch’

Human Rights Watch sells out to Soros–Gerald Steinberg – NYPOST.com
Sep 13, 2010 – Selling Out to Soros
Rights group’s dubious recordBy GERALD STEINBERG


Last Updated: 6:20 PM, September 13, 2010
Posted: 11:44 PM, September 12, 2010


In accepting a huge grant from George Soros, Human Rights Watch has spurned the public advice (and warning) offered nearly a year ago by its founder Robert Bernstein. Rather than grapple with the serious problems of credibility and bias, HRW Executive Director Kenneth Roth has cemented relations with Soros — a partisan ideologue who also supports Moveon.org, a controversial advocacy group.


Bernstein severely criticized HRW in a New York Times oped. To “resurrect itself as a moral force in the Middle East and throughout the world,” he warned, the organization must return “to its founding mission and the spirit of humility that animated it.” In its earlier days, he noted, “to create clarity in human rights,” HRW aimed to “draw a sharp line between the democratic and nondemocratic worlds.”


Soros: His $100 million donation to Human Rights Watch will make up for grants lost because of recent scandals. Over the years, HRW lost its moral compass and substituted ideology and an Israel-obsessed agenda. Bernstein was trying to awaken the group’s leaders to the decayed state of what was once a human-rights superpower.


Instead, Roth has opted to accept Soros’ $100 million grant — which should offset nicely the income lost from core donors who’ve walked away in the wake of a host of scandals. It won’t, however, address the root problems.


In May 2009, HRW launched a fund-raising drive in Saudi Arabia, using its anti-Israel record to solicit funds from “prominent members of Saudi society.” That September, HRW “senior military analyst” Marc Garlasco was “outed” as an avid collector of Nazi memorabilia — a troubling hobby for the main author of a number of HRW reports that accused Israel of “war crimes” and other violations.


Add to this the recent work by NGO Monitor, the watchdog group that I lead, and others on the severe ideological biases at HRW’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA) division. The systematic research in NGO Monitor’s report and articles in The New Republic and the Sunday Times detail the severe ideological biases of MENA director Sarah Leah Whitson and deputy director Joe Stork.


Both Whitson and Stork came to HRW with backgrounds in pro-Palestinian political activities, and continue to promote their anti-Israel political agendas through their “human rights” work.


Whitson was and remains an advocate of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. In July 2009, she referred to Israel’s “system of apartheid.” Stork’s publications in the Middle East Research and Information Project from the 1980s and 1990s focus on attacking Zionism, Israel and American “imperialism” in the Middle East, while promoting the Palestinian narrative.


This is further evidence of Bernstein’s conclusion that HRW is “helping those who wish to turn Israel into a pariah state.”


The group has relentlessly promoted the UN-commissioned report by one of its former board members, Richard Goldstone — a report that reflects the same biases and dubious research practices as so many recent HRW papers. In 2009, HRW’s 34 pro-Goldstone publications outnumbered its documents on all the countries in the Middle East except Israel and Iran.


The bias is indisputable: HRW’s publications on “Israel and the Occupied Territories” made up 28 percent of its total Mideast output in 2009.


Which makes it a fine fit for George Soros, whose own biases are well-established. In the Middle East, for example, his Open Society Institute exclusively supports advocacy groups that campaign internationally to undermine the elected governments of Israel — organizations such as Adalah, Peace Now, Breaking the Silence, Gisha and Yesh Din.


In extending his control over HRW, Soros seeks to increase its staff by 40 percent, reposition it as a major international player and restore its influence as an arbiter on universal human rights. But while his grant will alleviate the crisis caused by HRW’s declining income, it only deepens the moral crisis.


Only by changing the organization’s hiring practices, research priorities, methodologies and biases — especially at MENA — can Human Rights Watch recover its image as the “gold standard” of human-rights groups.

EXPLODING CRITICISM IN THE WAKE OF CRITICIZING ISRAEL, WHILE ISLAMIC-HEZBOLLAH DELIBERATELY CAUSES CIVILIAN DEATHS IN LEBANON (2006)


First Word: What is ‘Human Rights Watch’ watching – Jerusalem Post
 –  ALAN M. DERSHOWITZ
08/24/2006 16:48


Many former supporters of the organization have become alienated by its obsessive focus on Israel.


When it comes to Israel and its enemies, Human Rights Watch cooks the books about facts, cheats on interviews, and puts out predetermined conclusions that are driven more by their ideology than by evidence. These are serious accusations, and they are demonstrably true. Consider the following highly publicized “conclusion” reached by Human Rights Watch about the recent war in Lebanon between Hizbullah and Israel: “Human Rights Watch found no cases in which Hizbullah deliberately used civilians as shields to protect them from retaliatory IDF attack.” No cases! Anyone who watched even a smattering of TV during the war saw with their own eyes direct evidence of rockets being launched from civilian areas. But not Human Rights Watch.


How could an organization, which claims to be objective, have been so demonstrably wrong about so central a point in so important a war? Could it have been an honest mistake? I don’t think so. Despite its boast that “Human Rights Watch has interviewed victims and witnesses of attacks in one-on-one settings, conducted on-site inspections and collected information from hospitals, humanitarian groups, and government agencies,” it didn’t find one instance in which Hizbullah failed to segregate its fighters from civilians. Nor apparently did HRW even ask the Israelis for proof of its claim that Hizbullah rockets were being fired from behind civilians, and that Hizbullah fighters were hiding among civilians. Its investigators interviewed Arab “eyewitnesses” and monitored “information from public sources including the Israeli government statements.” Human Rights Watch ignored credible news sources, such as The New York Times and The New Yorker. “Hizbullah came to Ain Ebel to shoot its rockets,” said Fayad Hanna Amar, a young Christian man, referring to his village. “They are shooting from between our houses.”
Mr. Amar said Hizbullah fighters in groups of two and three had come into Ain Ebel, less than a mile from Bint Jbail, where most of the fighting has occurred. They were using it as a base to shoot rockets, he said, and the Israelis fired back. – Sabrina Tavernise, “Christians Fleeing Lebanon Denounce Hizbullah,” The New York Times, July 28, 2006. Near the hospital, a mosque lay in ruins. A man approached and told me that he was a teacher at the Hariri school. I asked him why he thought the Israelis had hit a mosque, and he said, simply, “It was a Hizbullah mosque.” A younger man came up to me and, when we were out of earshot of others, said that Hizbullah had kept bombs in the basement of the mosque, but that two days earlier a truck had taken the cache away. – Jon Lee Anderson, “The Battle for Lebanon,” The New Yorker, August 8, 2006. Even if the location of UN posts were known to Israeli commanders, that doesn’t rule out the possibility that Hizbullah fighters used one as a shield from which to unleash fire. They’ve done so in the past, says Maj.-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie (ret’d.), who witnessed the technique while on peacekeeping assignments in the area. “It’s the same as if you set up your weapons systems beside a mosque or a church or a hospital.” – Carlie Gillis, “Diplomacy Under Fire,” MacLean’s, August 7, 2006.
The surgeon led a group of journalists over what remained: mangled debris, shredded walls and a roof punched through by an Israeli shell. “Look what they did to this place,” Dr. Fatah said, shaking his head. “Why in the world would the Israelis target a hospital?” The probable answer was found a few hours later in a field nearby. Hidden in the tall grass were the burned remnants of a rocket-launcher.


Confronted with the evidence, Dr. Fatah admitted his hospital could have been used as a site from which to fire rockets into Israel. – Sonia Verma, “Hizbullah’s Deadly Hold on Heartland,” National Post, August 5, 2006. [Samira] Abbas said, she heard from relatives that her house in Bint Jbeil had been destroyed. She said Hizbullah fighters had gathered in citrus groves about 500 yards from her home. – Mohamad Bazzi, “Mideast Crisis – Farewell to a Soldier; Reporting from Lebanon; Running Out of Places to Run,” Newsday, July 28, 2006 “What that means is, in plain English, ‘We’ve got Hizbullah fighters running around in our positions, taking our positions here and then using us for shields and then engaging the (Israeli Defense Forces),'” said [Lewis] MacKenzie, who led Canadian peacekeepers in Bosnia. – Steven Edwards, “UN contradicts itself over Israeli attack,” CanWest News Service, July 27, 2006. It was also reported that Hizbullah fired from the vicinity of five UN positions at Alma Ash Shab, At Tiri, Bayt Yahoun, Brashit, and Tibnin. – United Nations interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), Naqoura, July 28, 2006 (Press Release).
While these pictures have escaped the ravaged country, other images and footage taken by local newspaper and television teams are routinely seized by armed Hizbullah fighters at road blocks. In one image a group of fighters, including youths, are preparing to fire an anti-aircraft gun just metres from an apartment block with laundry sheets drying on a balcony.
Others show a Hizbullah fighter armed with a nickel-plated AK47 rifle guarding no-go zones after Israeli blitzes. Another depicts the remnants of a Hizbullah Katyusha rocket in the middle of a residential block, blown up in an Israeli air attack. The Melbourne man who smuggled the shots out of Beirut told yesterday how he was less than 400m from the block when it was obliterated. “Hizbullah came in to launch their rockets, then within minutes the area was blasted by Israeli jets,” he said. “Until the Hizbullah fighters arrived, it had not been touched by the Israelis. Then it was devastated. “After the attacks they didn’t even allow the ambulances or the Lebanese Army to come in until they had cleaned the area, removing their rockets and hiding other evidence The fighters used trucks, driven into residential areas, as launch pads for the rockets, he said. Another image shows a line of decimated trucks sitting behind a 5m crater.
The tourist who smuggled the images back to Melbourne said the trucks had been carrying rockets. The release of the images comes as Hizbullah fighters face increasing censure for using innocent civilians as “human shields.” – Chris Tinkler, “Revealed: How Hizbullah puts the innocent at risk; They don’t care,” Sunday Mail (Australia), July 30, 2006.


HOW COULD Human Rights Watch have ignored – or more likely suppressed – this evidence from so many different sources? The only reasonable explanation is that they wanted there to be no evidence of Hizbullah’s tactic of hiding behind civilians. So they cooked the books to make it come out that way.


Even after the fighting ended and all the reports of Hizbullah hiding among civilians were published, HRW chief Kenneth Roth essentially repeated the demonstrably false conclusions that “in none of those cases was Hizbullah anywhere around at the time of the attack.” So committed is Human Rights Watch to its predetermined conclusions that it refused to let the facts, as reported by objective sources, get in its way. Many former supporters of Human Rights Watch have become alienated from the organization, because of, in the words of one early supporter, “their obsessive focus on Israel.” Within the last month, virtually every component of the organized Jewish community, from secular to religious, liberal to conservative, has condemned Human Rights Watch for its bias. Roth and his organization’s willful blindness when it comes to Israel and its enemies have completely undermined the credibility of a once important human rights organization.


Human Rights Watch no longer deserves the support of real human rights advocates. Nor should its so-called reporting be credited by objective news organizations.

Human Rights Watch: Irrelevant, Immoral on Mideast Conflict
By Abraham H. Foxman
National Director of the Anti-Defamation League 
This article originally appeared in The New York Sun on August 2, 2006 


Human Rights Watch has come out with a stinging attack on Israel for its actions in the conflict against Hezbollah, calling the tragedy in Qana a “war crime.”


Since Human Rights Watch is not an organization that has ignored human rights issues in the Arab world — it has done studies on such issues as human rights violations in Egypt and suicide bombings — what the organization says is given much weight and credibility in certain circles.


The truth is, however, that the overwhelming thrust of Human Rights Watch work regarding Israel and the Arab world falls on Israel. Included was a rush to judgment in its accusation that Israel in Jenin had committed war crimes in seeking out suicide bombers, as well as the fact that in one year (2004), according to NGO Monitor, of 33 HRW documents dealing with Israel, 25 were critical of the Jewish State.


More significantly, there are questions about HRW’s broader perspective in its work in the Middle East. Kenneth Roth falls back on technical interpretations to justify what his organization criticizes and what it doesn’t. He says that it doesn’t go into the cause of war. He doesn’t want to talk about the intentions of various parties. He doesn’t want to look at the larger picture because, he claims, all of this would undermine the neutral posture that gives his organization credibility.


More than any specific criticism, it is this explanation of what HRW is about that is so problematic. First, he inappropriately compares his organization in this respect to the Red Cross, but that body has a very different purpose. HRW, by its reports and statements, has a major impact on political judgments.


Far more important is that his explanation of HRW’s perspective — at least as it applies to the conflict of Israel and the Arab world — leads inevitably to the conclusion that HRW is either irrelevant or immoral, or maybe both. On one level, his explanations of all the factors that don’t come into play when doing analyses and passing judgment should lead to the conclusion that they truly aren’t relevant to the fundamental issues of peace, war, and justice that are embodied in a conflict such as this. If the intentions of Syria and Iran are not to be examined, if the takeover of part of a country by a terrorist group committed to the destruction of Israel is not something important, if the continuous flow of rockets, launchers and other weapons from Iran and Syria to an illegitimate group is not worthy of consideration, then ultimately why should anyone take seriously what Human Rights Watch has to say?


On a deeper level, one can conclude that despite painting itself as a great moral arbiter, in fact Human Rights Watch’s approach to these problems is immorality at the highest level. Let’s remember that Israel has been able to survive and prosper in a region where it has been surrounded by neighbors, close and far, who have been committed to Israel’s destruction for five decades, because of one reason: its strength and power of deterrence.


The State of Israel, which emerged out of the ashes of the Holocaust, understood early on that it must be able to convince its enemies that attacking the tiny Jewish State would be a big mistake. Israel had to make clear to the Arabs that they would be hurt far, far more than the pain they could inflict. In other words, without Israel hitting back (not in an “eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth” fashion which Mr. Roth cited and is a classic anti-Semitic stereotype about Jews) but in a much stronger way, Israel would have been destroyed long ago.


The moral issue, the human rights issue that overrides everything else in this conflict is that if Hezbollah, Syria and Iran don’t understand that they will pay an overwhelming price for these rocket attacks on Israel, then eventually the rockets will be armed with chemical weapons and the warheads with nuclear weapons. In other words, a second Holocaust would be in the works.


So yes, Israel is striking very hard at Hezbollah and the infrastructure that allows it to operate and to receive weapons from Iran and Syria. And yes, there are tragically civilian casualties. Israel must do everything in its power to limit these casualties. But it is Hezbollah that has cynically created a dilemma for Israel by embedding their missiles not only in civilian areas, but literally in civilian households. The dilemma for Israel was: should it be so careful to avoid civilian casualties — for its own sake, for the sake of the Lebanese people and their attitudes toward Israel, and for world opinion — that Israel would not effectively destroy the missile threat that was turning northern Israel into a hell for its residents? Or, should Israel strike at Hezbollah with significant force, inevitably producing civilian casualties because of the placement of missiles, which would turn the people of Lebanon and the world against Israel? Israel has sought its way through this minefield. It has tried both to protect its people and to limit civilian casualties.


It is no accident that Human Rights Watch gets it wrong or has a habit of rushing to judgment as it did in Jenin and as it did in Qana. If one sees military activity by Israel in a vacuum, ignoring the threats to its security and existence, ignoring the intentions and growing capabilities of its enemies, ignoring the cynical actions of its foes which seek either to hurt Israel and its citizens on the ground or to make Israel look bad in the eyes of the world, then, of course, Israel will look like the neighborhood bully and will be accused of all kinds of things.


I would therefore recommend that Human Rights Watch be viewed for what it is, at least when it comes to the great struggle in the Middle East that may determine not only the future of the State of Israel but of mankind itself: as irrelevant or immoral.

Roth’s False God
Editorial of The New York Sun | August 8, 2006


After The New York Sun ran an editorial and two op-ed pieces taking Human Rights Watch to task for anti-Israel bias, the organization’s executive director, Kenneth Roth, has finally found it in himself to denounce Hezbollah for placing troops and weapons near Lebanese civilians. And to acknowledge, for the first time, that the use of ambulances by Palestinian groups to transport weapons or suicide bombers is “a clear humanitarian violation.” We’re tempted to congratulate Mr. Roth. Too bad it had to be wrung out of him.


Call us optimists, but we still hold out hope that Mr. Roth will abandon his view, expressed in a letter to the editor printed in the adjacent column, that the Israeli government defending itself from Islamist terrorist aggression is engaged in “extremist interpretations of religious doctrine” like the terrorists themselves. Maybe in his next letter to us he’ll finally concede, too, that, as widely reported, the Iranian military is in Lebanon. Maybe he’ll concede that the fact that Hezbollah was not “in sight” is no evidence they were not there. Until then, Mr. Roth and his donors, staff, and board of directors should be aware that the American Jewish community recognizes with full clarity what Mr. Roth and Human Rights Watch are up to. It is unmistakable.


The three main religious movements of American Jewry — Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform — agree, for once. A spokesman for the Agudath Israel of America, an Orthodox group, Rabbi Avi Shafran, called Mr. Roth’s statements “loathsome” and likened him to Mel Gibson, the actor who, unlike Mr. Roth, at least had the decency to apologize for his outburst. The executive vice president of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, Rabbi Jerome Epstein, said the position of Mr. Roth and Human Rights Watch is “so biased and outrageous it is hard to take it seriously.” The national director of the Anti-Defamation League, Abraham Foxman, said Mr. Roth deployed “a classic anti-Semitic stereotype,” and said Human Rights Watch is “irrelevant or immoral.” A spokesman for the Union for Reform Judaism, Emily Grotta, said, “Abe Foxman has been speaking out about this recently and we agree with what he has been saying.”


The executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Malcolm Hoenlein, told us of Human Rights Watch that he was “disturbed by its apparent bias.” The president of the Zionist Organization of America, Morton Klein, said Mr. Roth of Human Rights Watch “is not only naïve, but shows his hatred toward Jews and Israel is greater than his hatred of Islamist terror.” The general counsel of the American Jewish Congress, Marc Stern, called Human Rights Watch’s position “a problem,” and said, “to elevate a mistake to the level of war crime is outrageous.” A spokesman for the American Jewish Committee, Kenneth Bandler, said the statements by Human Rights Watch and Mr. Roth “display a real lack of understanding.”


American Jewry stands with the Israeli government on the point. Israel’s ambassador to Canada, Alan Baker, a former legal adviser to Israel’s foreign ministry, a few months back told us of Human Rights Watch, after the organization wrote to President Bush calling for an end to all American aid to Israel, “They’ve lost their credibility.” Even Human Rights Watch’s founding chairman, Robert Bernstein, who led the organization from 1979 to 1997, is dismayed and pained at the stance the group he founded has been taking against the Jewish state, according to several individuals to whom Mr. Bernstein confided his discomfort with the organization he helped found. Mr. Bernstein declined to comment.


Mr. Roth sneers at “religious doctrine” and “Biblical injunctions” from the Torah. In an earlier letter to this page, he referred to them as the “morality of some more primitive moment.” He belittles any distinction between a terrorist group whose goal is to kill Jews, eradicate Israel, and impose Islamist law worldwide, and a pluralist sovereign state, like Israel, that apologizes and investigates when it kills civilians in the course of trying to protect its civilians and borders from the terrorist group. Human Rights Watch recently called on America to cease immediately arms transfers to Israel. If Mr. Roth’s Yale Law School degree and international law dictate cutting off Israel’s arms as it is under assault by a terrorist group out to destroy it and deliberately kill its civilians, we’ll take the Bible any day. One doesn’t need a Yale Law School degree or expertise in international law to know Israel is different from the terrorists, just a basic moral compass.


Mr. Roth’s own moral compass seems to go haywire whenever Israel is involved. More reputable scholars of international law, like Orde Kittrie writing in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, disagree with Human Rights Watch’s conclusions. So do President Bush and a consensus in Congress and among the American public, which have supported Israel’s right to defend itself. Siding with Human Rights Watch in criticizing Israel have been the governments of Iran and Communist China, two of the worst human rights abusers of them all.


Mr. Roth may send us another letter, conceding another point or two along the way. Or not. But this is about more than Mr. Roth and his organization. The moral equivalence that has infected him and his organization has, sadly, spread far on much of the left, from the United Nations to the International Red Cross and Amnesty International and the editorialists of the New York Times, who yesterday, stunningly, said any ceasefire they would favor must allow Hezbollah “to claim some sort of victory.” That such confusion has not gained traction among American Jews or, for that matter, on the Christian right in this country is testament to the bond of shared values between America and Israel. Those values have a base in something higher than the false god of international law before whom Kenneth Roth has brought a once-idealistic institution so low.

Human Rights Hypocrites
– Aug 29, 2006 – Hezbollah occasionally did store weapons in or near civilian homes and fighters placed rocket launchers within populated areas or near U.N. observers, which … Human Rights Watch investigated some two dozen bombing incidents in Lebanon involving a third of the civilians who by then had been killed.

MSM: ‘Ordinary’ Arab-Islamic bigots are “protesters”

September 11, 2011

MSM: ‘Ordinary’ Arab-Islamic bigots are “protesters”

When the MSM calls ‘ordinary’ Islamofascism – “protest”

It’s quite sickening when I watch BBC, CNN and others. Describing the anti-Israel vandals in Egypt [Sep. 2011] as “innocent protesters.”

As if the ‘ordinary’ Islamo-Arabs lay out specific demands, certain details to be met.

Let’s not skid off the truth, Israel is not welcome at all, in its entirety, even if Israel would spend the whole day giving candies to the Arabs.
Speaking of ‘giving.’ What exactly was the outcome when Israel gave, for example, Gaza, whereas Arab-Palestinians, never in history ‘had’ anything in the area – as a matter of fact? Only more Islamization, more Hamas acceptance [which was voted in following Israel’s give-away] and pro-violence that targets innocent civilians, especially Israeli children. So let’s not fool ourselves that Israeli’s so-called “policies” are the real reasons.

Of course there will always be incidents [Arab-Palestinians have quite an easy job in creating incidents, all they have to do is shoot behind civilians upon Israelis], which will serve as matches. But the gasoline is there, “Arab children are taught hatred of the Jews from their mother’s milk”* *.

Or as a writer has put it:

Their complaints are pure hypocrisy anyway. The Islamic world does not hate Israel because they care about the human rights of the Palestinians. If they cared about human rights they would have human rights in their own countries. The Islamic world hates Israel because, well, essentially because they are Jews. If they were Muslims, doing exactly the same things, no one in the Arab world would care. The main reason people focus on Israel is because it involves Jews.

Fact is, as a writer in the WSJ writes: 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.

Speaking of Islamism -specifically- in Egypt, Egyptian Cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub: The Jews Are the Enemies of Muslims Regardless of the Occupation of Palestine,… they are infidels

Take for example the cruel long Arab-Islamic racist boycott of Israel. Portrayed in MSM as some “activism…”

This antecedent movement is unabashedly anti-Semitic and racist, having started with a de facto boycott as early as 1922 against Jewish interests, not Israeli interests, 26 years prior to the establishment of the State of Israel.

The Arab League Council formally instated a boycott on December 2, 1945: “Jewish products and manufactured goods shall be considered undesirable to the Arab countries”. That, might I remind you, is a little less than 3 years before the establishment of the State of Israel and 22 years before the “occupation” began following the 6-Day War in 1967.
The Arab-League Boycott and the modern DFI are not one in the same; however, they share the same ideological roots of racism and anti-Semitism towards anyone from Israel. During the initial years of the Arab-League Boycott, all products, whether made by Jew or Arab were boycotted…

Author:

Despite Israel’s lack of importance and despite the weakness of the moral charges against it, Israel is an outcast. Israeli nationalism – Zionism – has been declared racism. The Arab League enforces secondary and tertiary boycotts against Israel. Jews may not enter Saudi Arabia, except for American soldiers. Malaysia forbids the performance of “Jewish” music. This endless policy of boycott and non-recognition is officially the policy of most Arab states. Countries like Libya… Saudi Arabia have never suggested that they would make peace if Israel did X or Y or Z. Their opposition to Israel, supported by leftists everywhere in the world, is one of permanent enmity. Since such a stance excludes the possibility of peace, it is implicitly genocidal and therefore radically evil.

In a classical example, an ardent anti-Israel “advocate”, who has -for a long time- called for a boycott of Israeli goods, jumped to the next step by calling (in 2009): “Do not buy anything from businesses run by the Jewish community.”


Arab cartoons portray Jews [not just “Israelis”] as non-humans. Influenced much by hate sermons along the Islamic “apes and pigs” * canard.



Best selling author:

It’s about the bigotry … Make no mistake: Arab racism is killing Jews. These bigoted myths and conspiracy theories brainwash Palestinian children to commit suicide bombings against Jews. Innocent children play death games, such as collecting “martyr” cards with pictures of suicide bombers.”

The Goliath Arab-Islamic Jew-hatred [anti-Semitism] is sad, horrifying. Suffice to see some translations from Arabic in MEMRI and in ADL’s documentation.* * *.


Conclusion: to the MSM, quit politicizing their deep blind hatred. There will never be peace as ,long as hate-education exist – the real problem. It may be more against Jews but it never stops there. An inscription in Arabic written on a picture of the PLO flag was drawn on a church top near the platform where the bishop spoke. It read: ‘On Saturday we [the Muslims] shall kill the Jews and on Sunday we shall kill the Christians’. In fact the Muslims of the region have long referred derisively and threateningly to the ‘Saturday people’ and the ‘Sunday people’.

ISLAMISTS’ GENOCIDE IN SOMALIA – so far – 30,000 CHILDREN DEAD!

September 6, 2011

ISLAMISTS’ GENOCIDE IN SOMALIA – 30,000 CHILDREN DEAD! Islamists refuse [Western] aid to the famine in Somalia. Thousands perish. Many flee.



Al shabaab refuses aid agencies to help the needy Somalis – Shabelle [Jan 12, 2011] MOGADISHU (Sh. M. Network) – Somalia’s Al shabaab movement refused international and local aid agencies to reach droughts affected areas in southen and central Somalia to help the needy Somalis, an Al shabaab official said on Wednesday. Sheikh Suldan Mohammed Ala Mohammed, an Al shabaab official, has told local Mogadishu radios that they will never allow aid agencies to operate in the regions under their control. Ala Mohammed charged those aid agencies with having hidden agendas in which they want to propagate and promulgate the Christianity, adding that they also want to launch brain wash attacks against ordinary people of Somalia.

He went on to say that selling and consumption of drugs to be spread in all Somali regions by what he called Christian relief agencies. He pointed they would also like to confront among Somalis. The statement of that official comes as Al shabaab ahs already banned more than 20 relief organizations from operating in south-central Somalia. Relief agencies serving inside Somalia say aid to millions of Somalis is hampered by the danger that aid workers face and a lack of respect for international humanitarian law by parties to the conflict.

Daily Monitor: – World | Al-shabaab opposes banned groups from returning to Somalia By Abdulkadir Khalif Posted Saturday, July 23 2011 at 00:00 Radical Somali Islamist group al-Shabaab has said organisations already banned in the war-torn country will not be allowed back. Al-Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamoud Raghe alias Sheikh Ali Dhere, said the said organisations were not welcome to Somali, currently facing severe humanitarian crisis. “The organisations that we banned cannot come back,” the spokesman stated Thursday evening. “Such entities are not included among those now invited to provide humanitarian aid,” he added, without naming the affected organisations. Sheikh Ali Dhere was reacting to a report by the United Nations on Wednesday that famine had hit two parts of rebel-held Somalia, due to a severe drought affecting more than 10 million people in the Horn of Africa.

Islamist group in Somalia bans samosas after deciding they’re too Western..’ By Stewart Maclean Last updated at 3:28 PM on 26th July 2011 Somalia’s al-Shabaab group has banned samosas after ruling the popular snacks are ‘offensive’ and too Christian.

Militant Islamist fighters last week used vehicles mounted with loudspeakers to announce the bizarre ruling across the regions of the war-torn country it controls. The extremist group has offered no official explanation for the ban on the triangular snacks, which are commonly cooked up and served across the Horn of Africa… The bizarre ban comes just days after militants linked to Al-Qaida in Somalia refused to let some aid workers into the country as tens of thousands suffered in the nation’s massive famine. Aid groups including the UN Food Programme say they were not given permission by militants to provide aid in the country, where it has been warned that 800,000 children could die from starvation.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2018858/Islamist-group-Somalia-bans-samosas-deciding-theyre-Western.html

BBC News – Somali Islamists maintain aid ban and deny famine – Jul 22, 2011 – Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamists have denied lifting their ban on some Western aid agencies and say UN reports of famine are “sheer propaganda”. The UN on Wednesday said that parts of Somalia were suffering a famine after the worst drought in 60 years. A spokesman for al-Shabab, which has ties to al-Qaeda and controls much of the country, accused the banned groups of being political.

But the UN insists famine exists and it will continue its aid efforts. Most Western aid agencies quit Somalia in 2009 following al-Shabab’s threats, though some say they have managed to continue operating through local partners. Some 10 million people are said to need food aid across East Africa but Somalia is by far the worst-affected country, as there is no national government to co-ordinate aid after two decades of fighting. Thousands of people are fleeing areas under al-Shabab control to camps set up in areas of the capital controlled by the weak interim government, which is battling the Islamist insurgents. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) was one of those banned. [Many Somali mothers have already seen their children die in the drought]

Al-Qaeda Affiliate, not Famine, is Responsible for Somalian Genocide Townhall Columnists Rachel Alexander 9/5/2011 Somalia is in the midst of a famine, suffering from the worst drought in 60 years. 29,000 Somali children have died within the past three months, and 100,000 Somalis are expected to die in the next few weeks. The al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabab has destroyed the country, taking over much of the southern part of the country where it has imposed a strict version of Sharia law. The Taliban-like organization refuses to allow humanitarian organizations associated with the West to provide aid to the starving people. Al-Shabab expelled the U.N.’s World Food Programme, which had provided the bulk of the aid, from much of the country in January 2010, accusing it of being a U.S. proxy. Incredulously, some are blaming the U.S. for the famine, not al-Shabab.

In Somalia – Jihad Uber Alles

Posted by David Meir-Levi

on Aug 17th, 2011 The drought in the Horn of Africa that began in 2009 is the worst in 60 years. But humanitarian aid from the UN, the USA and other countries has prevented mass starvation in the nations of that region, except one. In Somalia that drought soon turned into a famine of unprecedented proportions. To date almost 30,000 children under the age of 5 have died of starvation, according to U.S. estimates. The UN fears that at least 640,000 Somali children are acutely malnourished: a statistic that suggests the death toll of small children could rise to as many as 800,000! More than one million Somalis have fled to Ethiopia and Kenya, where makeshift refugee camps house hundreds of thousands.[1]

One might expect that all Somali leaders and political parties would join forces to help their people survive this enormous tragedy; but one would be wrong. The Somali Muslim terrorists known as al-Shabaab have worked for the past two years to prevent any foreign aid from reaching their Muslim Somali co-religionists, even as tens of thousands of Somali Muslim children die of starvation and hundreds of thousands of starving Muslim families flee al-Shabaab’s reach to find food and water in nearby Kenya and Ethiopia. Harakat ash-Shabaab al-Mujahideen (the “Organization of the Youth Jihad Fighters”), or al-Shabaab (“the lads” or “the youths” in Arabic) for short, is a group of Islamist terrorist jihadis fighting to overthrow the Muslim government of Somalia in order to replace it with a government committed to a more extreme form of Islam and to Shari’a law. The group now controls large swathes of southern Somalia. Its leaders claim that they are waging war against the “enemies of Islam” which includes the present Somali government. Al-Shabaab is an offshoot of Hizbul Islam (“The Islamic Party”), formed to fight the Somali government of President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed.

In December, 2010 Hizbul Islam merged with al-Shabaab to better implement jihad against President Ahmed and his government. Al-Shabaab has been designated a terrorist organization by several western governments. Al-Shabaab leaders formerly denied any connection with el-Qaeda, but early in 2010 they acknowledged that they worked with el-Qaeda forces in Pakistan and Yemen for training and deployment. The U.N. and the USA blame al-Shabaab for the famine, because its terrorist forces, under el-Qaeda influence, have created the single greatest obstacle to humanitarian assistance in Somalia. Thanks to al-Shabaab, the rate of malnutrition in southern Somalia is the highest in the world, approaching half the population, according to CNN. In addition to denying aid workers access to the regions where the drought and famine rage, al-Shabaab terrorists force local Somali Muslim humanitarian organizations to pay “taxes” (aka bribes) in order to be able to funnel food and other supplies to the devastated areas. They demand bribes from U.N. and from aid agency officials to allow them to work in areas under al-Shabaab control. In some cases, al-Shabaab terrorists have burned food stocks and medicine, and have kidnapped or killed charity workers, when bribes were not paid. These “taxes” can be as high as $10,000 for access to the areas al-Shabaab controls.

Then there are the “registration fees” of another $10,000, and payments of $6,000 every six months, as well as 20 percent of the value of all food and other supplies and 10 percent on all vehicles, as a form of “import duties.” Their terrorism pays well; but their extorted wealth and their Islamic jihad agenda come at the expense of the lives of hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions, of their own people. A gut-wrenching and tragic example of this kind of Islamofascist tyranny is reported in a recent Newsweek magazine interview[2] with a local Somali doctor. Dr. Hawa Abdi is an obstetrician and gynecologist running a clinic near Mogadishu since 1983. Today her medical compound holds 90,000 people, mostly women and children, all homeless refugees fleeing al-Shabaab and the famine. Al-Shabaab’s predecessor, the terrorist group Hizbul Islam, invaded her hospital and camp in 2010 in order to shut her down and take over her property and the hospital, because she is a woman and “…women are not allowed to shoulder any responsibility and authority.”[3] She refused even though they threatened to shoot her. They relented and she kept her medical compound and back-yard refugee camp running. This year however, al-Shabaab leaders, now emboldened by their merger with Hizbul Islam, attacked her hospital and home and compound (refuge to 90,000 homeless starving Somali Muslims!) with artillery and automatic weapons, in retaliation for her having been candid in a BBC radio interview about the damage that al-Shabaab has done in Somalia. They targetted the maternity and surgical wards and the pediatric malnutrition center. Hundreds died and thousands more fled, despite their need for medical care, only to die in the Somali desert. This vengeful cruelty becomes utterly unimaginable when one learns that some of these al-Shebaab attackers have their own wives and mothers living as refugees in Dr. Abdi’s compound.[4] Why does al-Shabaab wreck this horrific inhuman brutality against their own Muslim Somali people? As al-Shabaab spokespersons explain it, alien non-Muslim groups cannot be permitted to enter Somalia because they might host spies, or worse, promote an un-Islamic way of life among the Somali Muslims. According to some al-Shabaab representatives, the U.N.’s declaration of famine in parts of Somalia is politically motivated and “pure propaganda;” and attacks on humanitarian workers and the restrictions against the UN and other groups bringing food to starving Somalis are merely self-defense against foreign non-Muslim influences that might corrupt the pure Islamic way of life for Somali Muslims. Al-Shabaab leaders insist that there is no famine.

The claims of famine are a hoax, they say, perpetrated by Christians who have an anti-Muslim strategy to transport Somali Muslims abroad, especially into Christian countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, “…so that their faith can be destroyed and they could be staff and soldiers for the Christians.” Meanwhile, 30,000 children have died, hundreds of thousands more are malnourished, half-a-million Somali adults are starving, and 1.5 million are homeless; but Somali Islam is kept pure and unsullied by kafir influences. This is conspiracy theory gone ballistic, psychotic mass murder of these terrorists’ own people in order to advance their Muslim jihadist agenda. When the lives of hundreds of thousands of their own Muslim kin mean nothing compared to improving the chances of an al-Shabaab jihad victory in Somalia, we must acknowledge that we are dealing with psychopathic mass murder: Jihad uber Alles. The good news is that Somali government forces have driven al-Shabaab from Somalia’s capitol city, Mogadishu, and have opened the port and roads for UN and USAID supplies and aid workers, at least in the capitol city. Moreover, al-Shabaab may have been weakened both by the government forces’ liberation of Mogadishu and by the blowback of discontent from millions of starving or near-starving Somalis who correctly see al-Shabaab as the cause of their plight. So al-Shebaab’s totalitarian ruthless inhumane treatment of its own Muslim people may now backfire as Somalis suffer mass starvation and hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by al-Shebaab’s blockade and attacks on hospitals and aid workers. Is this a localized Somali tragedy, or should al-Shabaab’s unspeakable cruelty concern the USA?

U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY) has answered that question. On July 27, Rep. King, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, convened a Homeland Security meeting in Washington D.C., entitled “Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland.” He said: “Some argue that al-Shabaab is only a Somali problem…(but)…that kind of thinking is a glaring example of what the 9/11 Commission called a failure of imagination.” In his presentation, Rep. King documented that Al-Shabaab operatives in the USA and Canada are engaged in an ongoing successful effort to recruit and radicalize young Muslim Somali Americans for jihad. These young Somali Americans are trained by el-Qaeda in Pakistan, and have been deployed in Yemen, Afghanisan, and Somalia. Some of the recruits who joined Al-Shabaab’s terror cadres in Somalia have been killed in the fighting there, and three became suicide bombers. One who quickly rose to the rank of commander in al-Shabaab in Somalia, Mr. Omar Hammami, was raised a Baptist in Alabama! Al-Shabaab in the USA has been far more successful in recruiting Somali American citizens to their terror ranks than has el-Qaeda. Somali Al-Shabaab emissaries recruit actively in mosques in Somali communities all over the USA, with no opposition from local non-Somali imams (though lack of opposition may be out of fear rather than out of support for the al-Shabaab jihad). Federal prosecutions for funding terrorism and recruiting for terrorist groups are the most numerous for Somali-American Muslims than for other Muslim Americans working for other terror organizations. According to Rep. King, these Somali-American Muslim recruits pose a serious threat of home-grown terrorism. “…this threat is real, and …. al-Shabaab leaders’ public calls for attacks against America — including in retaliation for killing bin Laden — must be taken seriously. With a large group of Muslim-Americans willing to die as “martyrs,” and a strong operational partnership with al-Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and in Yemen, al-Shabaab now has more capability than ever to strike the U.S. homeland.” We must learn from our 9/11 “failure of imagination” and pay close attention to Rep. King’s admonitions. The Somali al-Shabaab display utterly inhuman ruthlessness as they callously condemn hundreds of thousands of their own to death by starvation, in the name of Allah and jihad. Home-grown Somali-American jihadists, trained by al-Qaeda and battle hardened in Somalia and elsewhere, can be expected to treat American kafiroon no less harshly. We must connect the dots now, and take pre-emptive defensive action, before al-Shabaab or their ilk perpetrate another 9/11. Notes: [1] For more details cf.

Poll stunner: These American blacks OK with violent attacks
Shocking study shows high number holding favorable views of al-Qaida

Posted: September 01, 2011
9:05 pm Eastern

The most dangerous Muslims in America may be black converts to Islam, according to a shocking new poll by the Pew Research Center.

African-American Muslims tend to hold the most violent views among U.S. Muslims surveyed by Pew in a poll released this week.

Fully 28 percent of U.S.-born black Muslim respondents said “suicide bombings and other violence against civilians” can be justified sometimes or at least in rare cases. That compares with 9 percent of foreign-born Muslims who hold the same view.

Pew also found that 11 percent of black Muslims living in the U.S. have a favorable opinion of al-Qaida – more than double the share of U.S. Muslims overall who hold that view. Another 21 percent of black Muslims hold only mildly unfavorable views of the terrorist organization responsible for attacking America 10 years ago; while 56 percent of that segment of the Muslim population hold very unfavorable views.

[…]
A popular African-American imam has preached that Islamic law permits Muslims to attack U.S. military targets – including C-130 military transport planes carrying the 82nd Airborne out of Fort Bragg, N.C., according to the best-selling book, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”

The Muslim cleric, Zaid Shakir, a frequent guest speaker at Council on American-Islamic Relations events, tells his Muslim audiences: “Jihad is physically fighting the enemies of Islam to protect and advance the religion of Islam. This is jihad.”

Acceptable targets of jihad, he says, include U.S. military aircraft.

He was a 15-year-old high school honors student in Ellicott City when federal prosecutors say he went online to solicit money for a woman who called herself “Jihad Jane” and “Fatima LaRose.”
Authorities say that in Web postings two years ago, the youth “appealed for urgent funds” for the suspected terrorist, whose real name is Colleen R. LaRose, 47, of Philadelphia. “I know the sister and by Allah, all money will be transferred to her.”

A dangerous new level
The president is facing a growing terrorist threat
Sep 3rd 2011 ABUJA from the print edition

..A SUICIDE-BOMBING on August 26th at the headquarters of the UN in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, which left at least 23 people dead, has sharply raised the stakes in the conflict between the government and its terrorist opponents. It was the first suicide-bombing in Nigeria to target an international body. It has rattled foreign residents. And it has made people question whether President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has a convincing plan to stop such attacks.

The prime suspect is Boko Haram, an extremist Muslim group whose name means “Western education is sinful”. One of its spokesmen told foreign journalists that the action had been carried out to avenge the humiliating treatment of its members by Nigeria’s army and police. Although reluctant to admit to an embarrassing failure of security, Nigerian officials have blamed the sect.

The attack marks a big leap in Boko Haram’s ambitions and suggests it may now be colluding with other more established groups, including al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which made a similar attack on UN offices in Algeria four years ago. The Nigerian secret police say that a member of Boko Haram recently came back from Somalia to oversee the attack.

Most of the sect’s activities have hitherto been confined to the dusty north-east of Africa’s most populous nation, on the fringe of the Sahara desert. But in recent months it has expanded beyond its home ground. The latest bombing is the second in the capital since June, when the chief of police narrowly avoided being blown up in his headquarters.

In July Mr Jonathan set up a committee to look into the turmoil in the north-east, Boko Haram’s base. But it has been slow to report. Unless the president soon presents a plan of action, Nigerians and foreign investors may lose confidence in his government’s ability to deal with the problem.

It is hard to gauge the extent of Boko Haram’s following. It has no clear structure or evident chain of command. Poverty in the area has helped drive young men into the arms of radical Islam. Fervent religious extremism has encouraged people to assail the government. The security services’ heavy-handed tactics in trying to quash the violence with random arrests, killings and disappearances have fuelled the discontent. Counter-insurgency experts are urging them to be less bellicose.

Al-Qaida not the only U.S. enemy
COMMENTARY
By CLIFFORD MAY
Syndicated columnist

Published: Monday, August 29, 2011 at 6:15 a.m.
Last Modified: Monday, August 29, 2011 at 6:23 a.m.
Nearly 10 years after the 9/11 attacks, many politicians, diplomats, journalists and academics remain reluctant even to name America’s enemies.

To take but one example: John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, has argued that America is only “at war with al-Qaida” and its closest affiliates.

I understand the impulse to frame the conflict as narrowly as possible. Brennan and others do not want to reinforce al-Qaida’s message that Muslims from Afghanistan to Iraq to Israel to Paris to Detroit must choose between the umma, the global Islamic community, and the West – to fight for one and against the other.

But can we not say – truthfully and without playing into al-Qaida’s hands – that there are regimes and groups within the Muslim world that are implacably hostile to the West? Can we not say that they subscribe to a belief system called Jihadism? The late Father Richard John Neuhaus defined Jihadism as a religiously inspired ideology built on the teaching “that it is the moral obligation of all Muslims to employ whatever means necessary in order to compel the world’s submission to Islam.”

Spanish Town Becoming “New Mecca of the Most Radical Islamism”
by Soeren Kern
September 1, 2011 at 5:00 am
The municipality of Salt, a town near Barcelona where Muslim immigrants now make up 40% of the population, has approved a one-year ban on the construction of new mosques. It is the first ban of its kind in Spain.

The moratorium follows public outrage over plans to build a massive Salafi mosque that is being financed by Saudi Arabia. Salafism is a branch of revivalist Islam that calls for restoring past Muslim glory by forcibly re-establishing an Islamic empire (Caliphate) across the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe such as Spain, which Salafists view as a Muslim state that must be reconquered for Islam.
