Anti-Jewish racism by Israeli-Arabs – Arabism
The worrying involvement of Israeli Arabs in terrorist attacks directed against Israeli Jews source, source, Among the brazened ones in 2008 are noted the bulldozer attacks source, “He took the bulldozer, with which he fed his own wife and family, and used it to crush other families to death, simply for being Israeli Jews.”source. Arab Workers Attack, Use Hammer to Injure Jewish Electrician (Jul 24, 2008) source, On July 7, 2008 a writer in Israel’s lefty paper Haaretz asks: If justifying the murder of innocents because they belong to a certain hated group is not abject racism, I’d like to know what is. source.
Israeli-Arab leadership, Arab MK Ahmed Tibi: (the entire area) ‘Palestine Belongs to Arabs, Not Jews’ source, on January 2008 Islamic Movement head in Israel was charged with incitement to racism, violence source and on August 2008 Police shut down offices of Islamic Movement branch suspected of aiding Hamas, He was later in court with incitement to violence and racism, over a fiery speech he gave in the Wadi Joz neighborhood, in which he accused Jews of using children’s blood to bake bread. source.
A writer in Israel’s lefty Ha’aretz (on the left’s unfair demonizing of Avigdor Lieberman) on the subject of who is the racist, and on the hypocrisy of Israeli Arabs, especially Arab MK (member of Knesset /parliament) enjoying equality and lying about Israel’s pluralistic democracy at the same time: What’s racist is denying the Jewish people a state of their own. Certain Arab Knesset members talk incessantly about the Palestinian people’s rights, including their own state. But in the same breath they refuse to acknowledge Israel as the state of the Jewish people and deny the very existence of a Jewish people as a nation with national rights. The person who deserves the racist epithet is MK Jamal Zahalka, who attended the conference of hate in Geneva and called himself “a victim of Israel’s racist apartheid” while serving as a member of the Israeli parliament.
It has bee noted for a while that Arab Knesset members such as Ahmed Tibi have turned racists against Jews source.
In face of radical Arabs’ in Israel, such as Azmi Bishara toward terrorism, forming alliances with those attempting to annihilate Israel, a new term was coined: ‘Bish-Arabism’ , it could be defined as a radical and rapid shift among Israeli Arabs – especially their representatives in the Knesset – from relative moderation
In Oct 2008, on Yom Kippur, an Arab driver drove dangerously wild into Jewish neighbourhoods causing clashes, Arabs heading back to their neighborhoods ran riot through Jewish areas of the city. Calling “Death to the Jews” and Allah hu akbar (“Allah is great”), the rioters vandalized hundreds of Jewish-owned shops and vehicles, and threw rocks at people on their way to or from Yom Kippur prayers.
On March 30, 2009, Arab MK “complained” of: ‘Too Many Jews in Galilee,’ Taleb A-Sana of the United Arab List (Ra’am Ta’al) accused the government of “Judaizing the Galilee and the Negev” by encouraging Jews to move to those areas. A-Sana called on the government to encourage Arab life in those areas…
From a May 2009 poll: ‘Bad Numbers Among Israeli Arabs,’: 40 Percent of Israel’s Arab Citizens Deny Holocaust
source, they believe Holocaust never happened source and only 41% of Israeli Arabs support the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state,
source this racist trend is on the rise from a 2007 poll that showed “only” ‘28% of Israel’s Arabs deny Holocaust’ – statistics on Holocaust denial “reflect the situation in the Arab elite source, worth mentioning the transparant hatred of this, less of convinced “disbelief”, as the Israeli Arabs, and their groups like “Adala” (also known for calling Israelis’ fears as racism), etc. know when to remind the Holocaust when trying to exaggerate lost battles with Israel’s war on terror, comparing Arabs’ failure to “victims of the Holocaust” (as YNet elaborates on “Who is the real fascist?”) source
Non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world [Racist Arabism and bigoted Islamism]
Non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world
One key element missing from the discussion is the question of non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world. The Arab nationalists have succeeded in establishing some 23 non-democratic, ethnically (Arab) and religiously (Islam) defined nation-states in over 1 million square miles of territory, often at the expense of non-Arabs, such as the Kurds (Muslims, non-Arabs), Assyrians (Christians, non-Arabs), Copts (Christians, non-Arabs), southern Sudanese (Christian and pagan non-Arabs), Maronite Lebanese (Christian and mostly identified with their Phoenician ancestors) and Mizrahi Jews. Arab nationalist ideology claims all this territory exclusively as “Arab” despite the legitimate claims of non-Arabs and/or non-Muslims to ancient homelands long ago arabized with the spread of Islam, often through conquest.
I believe that the Arab opposition to the existence of non-Arab, non-Muslim Israel is based on the ideological motivations which led to the persecution of non-Arab minorities. The Assyrians suffered massacre and expulsion by the Arab nationalists of Iraq in the 1920s and 1930s. The Kurds have been persecuted and have suffered terribly for their struggle to establish an independent Kurdistan (at the hands of the Turks and Iranians as well, but that is another story.)
Arab nationalist ideology, and its Islamicist couterpart, cannot and will not tolerate non-Arab and non-Islamic peoples organizing themselves into their own independent nation states. Indeed, I have seen on Islamicist web sites the goal of “regaining” Spain in the name of Islam.
I believe that we need to place Israel’s struggle to survive into this context. Any non-Arab/non-Islamic state in the region must rely on strength (political, moral, spiritual and military) if it wants to survive in the Middle East. In this context can we thus place Israel’s demand for security. It is not security for the sake of security, not seucirty for the sake of oppressing another people, but security for the sake of survival against two racist and exclusivist ideologies (Arabism and Islamicism) which have succeeded in repressing the just struggles for national self-determination of most non-Arab peoples in the Middle East.
To this end, I highly recommend looking at the following web sites:
Racist Arabism & fascist Islamism: Anti-Copt
The word Copt is an English word taken from the Arabic word Gibt or Gypt. The Arabs after their conquest of Egypt in 641 A.D. called the indigenous population of Egypt as Gypt from the Greek word Egyptos or Egypt. The Greek word Egyptos came from the ancient Egyptian words Ha-Ka-Ptah… The word Copt or Coptic simply means Egyptian, however the Muslim population of Egypt calls themselves Arabs. In contemporary usage, the word Copt or Coptic refers to the Christian population of Egypt. The Arab’s oppression led the Copts to several rebellions, , Coptic: an Afro-Asian language descended from ancient Egypt, and spoken by the Copts.
During the rise of pan-Arab nationalism in the 1950s and 1960s, the economically prosperous Copts, who then represented 20 percent of the population but held more than 50 percent of the nations’s wealth, saw their businesses and factories nationalized under the socialist government of Gamal Abdel Nasser. Many of them left as a result.
Cairo’s poor Copts are known as “zabaleen”, an Arabic name for garbage man. In Cairo there is an area with the same name where those Copts are living together with the garbage that has been collected. Copts reached this level of poverty due to the regime ruling the country in the past sixty years.
From early writings, many medieval Arab writers, tended to include unsubstantiated and racist negative commentaries about the Copts. A Copt — i.e. a descendant of Egypt’s now subjugated, ancient, pre-Arab Christian people
Critics argue that a Pan Arabist will always suppor Arab unity and “Islam” at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples. one would direct and manipulate the Western taste for self criticism, and all that does is deflect the world’s attention from Arab and Moslem atrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc.
Though, current actively Anti Copt attacks stems more often from Islamism, especially by Islamic groups , and persecution comes often even from Egypt’s government. , Egyptian Reformist Thinker Tarek Heggy: ‘Egyptian Copts are Oppressed, Oppressed, Oppressed’
Racial Arabization of Copt
From a Lecture Delivered by a Coptic Bishop In Hudson Institute, Washington (July, 2008) entitled: “The Experience of the Middle East’s largest Christian community during a time of rising Islamization”, where he talked about how the Arab invasion of Egypt in 639 A.D. has altered the identity of Egypt through Arabization and forced conversion to Islam, and the lasting impact on the Christian minority in Egypt. He said, “The Copts have been always focused on Egypt; it is our identity, it is our nation, it is our land, it is our language, it is our culture. But when some of the Egyptians converted to Islam, their focus changed away from looking to their own [language and culture]. They started to look at the Arabians, and Arabia became the main focus,” adding that, “if you come to a Coptic person and tell him that he’s an Arab, that’s offensive., reemphasizing: We are not Arabs, we are Egyptians. Declaring: “I am very happy to be an Egyptian and I would not accept being an “Arab” because ethnically I am not.” The Bishop went on to say, “that means shifting the identity of the nation, to belong to Arabism and to the widespread Arabic area …and this is a big dilemma for the Copts who kept their Christianity, or, I rather say, that they kept their identity as Egyptians [who have] their own culture, that of old and real original Egypt trying to keep it, The process of Arabization and Islamization are still actively working till now upon Copts, The Bishop argued that the Egyptian culture has been taken from the Copts and attributed to the Arabs, that the process of Islamization is still on-going, and that the Christian child has “to study the history of the victorious Islamic invaders, which means that as a little kid you have to praise the Arabic troops that came to your country.” … , like Assyrians, Armenians & Jews, the Copts are of the very few middle eastern indigenous communities to be surviving the Arabs/Muslims’ forcible assimilation of non-Arabs, Non-Muslims.
Arab Imperialism And Arab Supremacism

Arab Imperialism And Arab Supremacism
Author: C. Read
Arab Imperialism is designed for an Arab state to run the world. Unlike others who have tried to take over the world in the past, there is no timetable. Arab Supremacism mandates that those who follow Islam are right and everyone who does not practice this religion is their enemy. Arab Supremacism is helped along by the quest for the oil in the Middle Eastern countries. Arab Imperialism got its start when the west began to be more dependent on their oil. Since the 1970s, when Arab nations began selling oil to the west, terrorist acts have become the norm and Arab Imperialism, aided by money from oil, has grown.
Islamic fundamentalists are not content with living in countries where their religion rules. In the past couple of decades, there has been a dramatic increase of Arabs emigrating to western countries. This includes the countries in the European Union, Canada and the United States. In the past two decades alone, the number of Islamists has quadrupled in the United States alone. And the numbers are growing. Countries like the United States are welcoming in these immigrants under the impression that they want to enjoy opportunity and freedom and will assimilate with the culture. Arab Imperialism, however demands that they do not assimilate with the culture of the west.
Arab supremacism is evident in countries where there is a huge influx of the Arab population. Rules are changed and cries of racism are used if rules are not changed. This is evident everywhere, yet most westerners refuse to see it for what it is. If you mention Arab imperialism to anyone or point out the fact that terrorism in the name of Islam is rampant, you will find yourself on the defensive. Many counties are turning a blind eye to the wave of Arab imperialism that is sweeping over western civilization.
Islam demands full compliance. Those who follow Islam are taught not to befriend anyone who does not believe as they do. Those who are not Islamic are all lumped together and branded as infidels. And as infidels, they are punished. Remember the rejoicing after terrorist attacks in the United States killed thousands of people. This was a time for mourning in the western world, but in Islamic countries filled with Arab supremacism, it was a time for rejoicing.
As the Arab world grew more prosperous, it also began to change. Stricter codes were used to enforce Islam. Women, who had once enjoyed privileges and rights were stripped from their rights. In some countries where Arab imperialism reigned supreme, women were even denied a chance for an education. Arab imperialism seems to be progressing into the west and going backwards in their own countries. While some Arabs who move to western countries assimilate themselves into the culture, those who are strict followers of Islam do not. Human rights abuses that occur in the Middle East are overlooked by the media as well as the United Nations as Arab imperialism and Arab supremacism continues to grow toward dominating the world.

A few points about the racist UN – Durban “anti-racism” conference
Why Western countries tend to boycott it.
1) Since Muslim nations (OIC & Iran) push to criminalize criticism of Islamists’ bigotry, doesn’t it mean that anything being said in that conference is the opposite of tolerance and of truth?
2) How can the UN avoid the largest practitioner of racism, which is Arabism (against: Kurds, Berbers, Africans, Jews, Assyrians, Asians, etc.), but focuses on the so called “anti-Arab racism”?
[ Arabism is racism! ]
3) When will Arab racists & Islamic bigots let go of the UN and stop hijacking it with it’s lobbies (silencing Arab racist genocide in Darfur, yet daming innocent Israelis who merely try to survive)?
4) Why is Arab terror singling out Jews not racist?
5) Why is the essence of the entire “conflict'” in the M.E. not a form of bigotry by Arab Muslims who can’t “accept” the non Arab non Muslim pluralistic democratic Israel?
6) Are Jews living, or even allowed to live in racist “Palestinian” controlled territories (Judenrein – ethnic cleaning)?
7) When will lefty radicals (Meretz/B’Tzelem) talk about preferential treatments to Arabs OVER Jews inside Israel, like in Hebron and in other cases?
8) Why are (Arab Palestinian or Hezbollah) the ones using its own kids as cannon fodders considered “innocent victims”?
9) Is Israel battling just terrorism or an ARAB MUSLIM CAMPAIGN OF GENOCIDE since the 1920’s?
10) How more racist can the Durban-conference get, If the two oppressive regimes: Libya & Iran are the “stars”?
Libya – whose Muamar Qaddafi (besides his own persecution of non-Arabs, especially blacks in his country) the one of the champions in today’s racist Arabization, and Arabist racism against Africa (whose “vision” has been compared to Hitler’s “lebensraum”), in: Chad, Nigeria, etc., ultimately his crimes in the Sudan region helped in leading the current Al-Bashir’s genocide on Millions of Africans (financed mainly by Libya and S. Arabia).
Iran, the regime of Islamic bigotry’s oppression on its own population with an added special persecution on all on-Muslims: Christians, Baha’i, Jews, etc. or on non-“pure-Persians” like: Ahwazi – Arabs, Kurds, Azeris, Baluchis, etc. now under the leadership of: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad [EichmannJihad – the Islamic Hitler] who plays as if he “denies” the holocaust only in order to prepare for (his wishful) the second, “wiping off Israel”.
Thus, the shame of the UN, kidnapped by the epitome of intolerance today, the infamous twin fascism: Arab racism, as in Gadhafi, and Islamic bigotry as in Amadinejad, are going to be “preaching” (and determine) to the world on tolerance.

[Arab] Bus driver to Ethiopian: Drink milk and you’ll be white
Racist remark costs Jerusalem driver his job. Egged bus company spokesman: We denounce such disgraceful behavior, which puts all of our professional drivers to shame

• We Will Islamize America and Arabize Africa – Dr Hassan Abdallah Turabi from Darfur, Sudan
The whittling away of the remains of settler colonialism is proceeding with the increased development of Southern Africa. There is no parallel process of decolonisation in the Afro-Arab Borderlands, rather an internationally co-ordinated aggressive action is underway, to coral the Sudan liberation movements in places such as Darfur and in eastern Sudan, into a peace ‘laager’, with the generous dispensation of petro-dollars.
Given that the area of ‘ambiguous relations’(i.e. the Afro-Arab Borderlands) has been pushed southwards into the Sudan as a result of hundreds of years of interaction, it would be illogical to expect such a process of encroachment to stop from one moment to the other.
The push southwards by the same forces in the West African region, explains the tensions in the Ivory Coast, and the generalised fighting which took place in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Charles Taylor and Foday Sankor were trained in warfare and met in Libya.
It was Turabi, who exercised power in the first half of current Sudan President Bashir’s rule, who pursued a deliberate policy of implanting Islam in north America, whilst Arabization was spearheaded in Africa.
It was Turabi who sent some two thousand post-graduate northern Sudanese students to the US with instructions to form friendships with African Americans. Many of these graduates are now in the public service of Sudan.
As it happens, the Nation of Islam, led by Louis Farrakan in the USA, grouping Black Muslims in north America, has pursued a policy of support for the Khartoum regime, having taken material assistance from Khartoum.
Farrakan has gone so far as to say there is no slavery in Sudan, opposing the Writ issue against Bashir. This has affected African-American understanding and concerns about matters in Sudan. So that those demonstrating in the US against genocide in Darfur have been noticeably white.
In Africa, Arabization proceeds apace and now endangers African overall security. This we see in Somalia, where Sharia Law is being introduced.
Whereas Somalia has long been Islamic, it always was a united entity, before the collapse brought on by its last military ruler Siad Barre. It had one language and an African culture. This is now being changed. It will not stop in Somalia. Arabization will be pushed further south deep into Black Africa.
Arabia has used the so called ‘peace pact’ to its advantage, as a strategy to relentlessly push its influence southwards. It was used effectively by the Lord Resistance Army (LRA).
Like with the UNITA movement of Jonas Savimbi in Angola, the tactical use of the temporary cessation of hostilities, to lull the opposition into a non-combative posture, creating a breathing space, whilst restocking and preparing for the next offensive, is as old as time itself. Such ceasefires do not last.
The attempts by certain quarters to withhold the Writ to be issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Joseph Kony of the LRA, defeated the ends of justice and permitted him to relocate from south Sudan to the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the bloody costs of the Congolese and the people of the Central African Republic.
This relocation needs further investigation. There was a time before 2005 and the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), between the Khartoum government and south Sudan, when Kony lived in Juba, which was then a garrison town controlled by Khartoum, under the protection of the Bashir government in Khartoum. Who is to say that Kony is still not financed by Khartoum?
The relentless push southwards by Arabia has never abated – indeed some westerners would say that the major new pre-occupation in international relations at the turn of the century was the global Jihad, which emerged as a counterpoint to the existence of Israel, spreading outside of the Middle East and African theatres, to terrorise the world.
In Africa, current developments in Somalia are cause for sober reflection. Whereas the Somalis in their majority are Muslims, Somalia was known, before the current difficulties, as an integrated society, with one culture and one language, Somali.
What is unfolding, under the noses of the African Union (AU) Peacekeepers, is the annexation of Somalia into the Arab League, Arabia and the Arabian zone of influence – that is the Arabization of Somalia.
Such annexation is precisely what the south of Sudan fought against for some 39 years.
The question is, will Africa south of the Sahara, on this occasion, yet again, be compliant, watching this process without registering protest?
The current Libyan ‘King of Kings’ of the AU, can hardly be expected to intervene in such an issue, going on his past record of intervention in places such as Tchad and Sudan. The supreme dilemma of Chairman Ping of the AU must be, what to tell the peacekeepers in Somalia, is their mission.
Apart from maintaining the peace, why are the belligerents fighting, why are they (peacekeepers) being attacked? What is the root cause of the conflict in the country? History teaches us that soldiers, at the cost of their lives, always return home to inform what were the stakes in the fighting. Usually this has a radicalising impact on the home population.
The era of denial about the truths of the Borderlands is over. If the lessons were not learnt through the history, the contemporary period is littered with case studies in southern Sudan and Darfur, not to mention northern Tchad (Tibesti), northern Niger, northern Mali, Mauritania and now Somalia. The lid can no longer be kept on. The truth is out.
The inquiries of the ICC into mass murder in the Borderlands creates the precedent, which changes the equation in the area. The attempted elimination of the Fur, the Masalit and the Zaghawa ethnic groups of Darfur is an exercise in ethnic cleansing, in the pursuit of demographic change, in order to Arabize Darfur. A similar project was run in south Sudan for some 39 years and is also now underway, which has received scant attention, in Nubia, northern Sudan, where millions are affected.
In Nubia, the intent of Khartoum is to move the Black Nubians off their lands and to resettle them elsewhere, whilst bringing in millions of Egyptian peasants, for settlement.
The purpose of all these operations is to ultimately make Sudan an Arab country, in terms of its majority population. This initiative has been on, in surges, for a millennium. Having failed to conquer south Sudan, the Arabist/Islamist global force, the same operating in Afghanistan, is moving to annex Somalia.
After Somalia they will move further southwards. Some are saying they will thereafter target central Africa.
In this connection it is worth recounting the words of Joseph Lagu, the south Sudanese Anya-nya leader, on page 339 of his book ‘Sudan odyssey through a state – From ruin to hope’, a 2006 publication. Concerning his interaction with Col Muamar Gaddafi during an official Sudanese visit to Libya in 1975, he recounts:
‘He (Col Gaddafi) told us that other Arab leaders and he would like to develop Southern Sudan, but for that to be possible we should allow the South to be Islamised and Arabised. He said that he did not mean that we leaders should change our religion, for he knew we were already Christians. He said he referred to those without religious affiliation that formed the bulk of the population. He told us that for him to get Arab funds for the development of the South, he needed to tell the Arabs that Southern leaders accepted the Islamisation of the South. He made it clear to us that Arabs consider their aid to other people in that perspective’.
In effect what is being posited here is that there can be no peace in the Borderlands, without a structural change in Afro-Arab relations and that such a realignment must incorporate not only the admission of guilt but also atonement.
There cannot be closure without an opening by the wrong-doer, to enable review and judgement. These are prima facie requirements to begin the Afro-Arab civilisation dialogue. Without atonement space is created for Great Power intervention in the Sahel.
Slavery has existed in all the ancient civilizations of Asia, Africa, Europe and pre-Columbian America. It had been recognized and accepted by the Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
With both Arab and European slavery, Africans were not the machines, but the cogs in a process whose outcome was unknown to them. The denial of their languages and cultures in effect denationalised the Africans, turning them into assimilados and Black Arabs.
However, in Arabia Black Muslims are not accorded the same status as pure Arabs. They are referred, even in Mecca during the Haj, as ‘abed’, meaning slave. Whereas in the western world the human rights concept has made possible an Obama, in Arabia such a phenomenon, of a Black president is inconceivable, such is the level of racism.
In Arabia and amongst Arabs, anti-Black racism is a fact of life, be it in Libya or in Egypt. So that Africans, who, by colonial design, are ruled by Arabs, as is the case in south Sudan and Mauritania, for example, are the subjects of an apartheid system which is even more oppressive, due to Arabia’s lack of enlightenment, than the racist system which was in place in southern Africa.
All need to take cognizance of this fact, especially those concerned with human rights issues. It is only today that the moral guardians, in places such as the Hague, have steered themselves to scrutinize what is an historic reality known by all who live in the Borderlands, that over centuries Africans have been the targets of genocide and slavery in the Borderlands, otherwise known as the ‘killing fields’ for Africans, because historically speaking, that is what the Sahel has been.
It was not a melting pot, but an area of agony, sorrow, distress and death as slave convoys walked northwards to their fate. The truths of this area are now exposed in the mass slaughter perpetrated in south Sudan, Darfur and elsewhere.
Northern Sudanese, who pride themselves as being Arabs, more Arab than the Arabs of the Middle East, are considered second class Arabs in Arabia, because of their dark pigmentation. Northern Sudanese such as President Bashir of Sudan would have been classified, in the Southern African context, as ‘coloureds’. They are a mixture of Arab and African.
Indeed, Bashir is a Falata, that is a northern Sudanese of Nigerian Fulani extraction.
It needs to be said that since the time of the establishment of Islam in Mecca in present day Saudi Arabia, pilgrims from west Africa, particularly from Nigeria, have been passing through northern Sudan on their way to Mecca. Many stayed on in the Holy Lands. Many also settled in northern Sudan.
The historical links between northern Sudan and Nigeria are umbilical, such that Nigeria cannot be indifferent to developments in Sudan in general. It goes further than that. There are ties of kinship between the Hausa/Fulani of Nigeria and the people of Darfur traced back over hundreds of years.
Due to Islam/Arabization and Sudan’s strategic location on the Nile, the northern Sudanese have taken on a persona, especially under the leadership of Bashir’s National Islamic Front (NIF)/National Congress Party (NCP), of being the guardians of Arab hegemony in the eastern Sahel and of being more Arab than the Arabs of the Middle East, despite their second class status in Arabia.
Logically, it could be analysed that the northern Sudanese act as the advance guard, to protect and push forward Arab and Islamic interests into east Africa.
In that cause they have and continue to be the guardians of Arab interests in Africa, on which basis they obtain the support of Arab interests and finance worldwide.
One of the principal executioners in the promotion of this policy is Salah Gosh, Head of Sudan’s National Security and Intelligence Service, who recently told an audience celebrating his promotion to Field Marshal:
‘ We (the government) were Islamic extremist then became moderate and civilized believing in peace and life for everyone.
“However we will revert back ( if the Writ of the ICC is issued against President Bashir ) to how we were if necessary.”
‘Anyone who attempts to put his hand to execute (ICC) plans we will cut his hands, head and parts because it is a non-negotiable issue.’
The Sudanese scholar Yusuf Fadl Hassan ‘On the historical roots of Afro-Arab relations’ stated in ‘The Arabs and Africa’ (1985):
‘Slavery is slavery and cannot be beautified by cosmetics. It left an extreme bitterness in the central parts of the [African] continent against the Arab minority which lived on the coast. Because this issue disturbs Afro-Arab relations it should be studied courageously and objectively’.
Arab-led slavery of Africans in the past and in the present goes to the core of the relationship of Africans with Arabs, it is an issue that both Africans and Arabs frequently treat as a matter to be hushed up because of the embarrassing reaction it generates…
No Arab land is occupied by Israel
Thursday, 8th January, 2009
By Ben Okiror
THE current fighting in the Gaza Strip needs clarification for people to understand its genesis. I accept that the situation is complex, and that might explain why even the US President-elect, Barack Obama has so far opted to remain silent since the war broke out.
However, I would like to bring out what seems to have been ignored and yet it is important for a balanced analysis of the conflict.
Whereas on the surface it is the terrorist group, Hamas, fighting the only Jewish nation, Israel, it is in fact a continuation of the war that Arabs have waged against the Jews since Israel was created in 1948.
The geographic area called “Palestine” was governed by the British after it took it from the Turks at the end of the First World War.
The League of Nations (precursor to the United Nations), according to the Balfour Declaration of 1917, mandated Britain to create a Jewish state in all of “Palestine” due to historical right.
Tragically, Britain did not fulfill its mandate and instead created a formerly nonexistent Arab-Palestinian state called “Transjordan” (now Jordan) on 77% of the Jewish soil in 1922.
Even when the United Nations decided on the Partition Plan on November, 29 1947, Britain voted against it and all the Arab states boycotted the vote.
Never mind that the Plan that gave the Jews only 23% of its original land was not legally binding since the UN Security Council did not ratify it.
In 1948 Britain abandoned Palestine without fulfilling its primary responsibility. Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948 but was attacked by six Arab states the next day.
Ironically, Jordan was led, armed and trained by Britain. It invaded occupied and annexed Samaria and Judea (now called the “West Bank”) as well as East Jerusalem.
On the other hand, Egypt invaded and occupied Gaza. These are the so-called “occupied territories” after Israel recaptured them in 1967.
Incidentally, for 19 years when Egypt and Jordan were in charge of those territories, nobody cared about creating a Palestinian state.
Instead Jordan destroyed 58 synagogues in East Jerusalem and desecrated 38,000 of the 50,000 ancient and modern Jewish graves in the cemetery on the Mount of Olives. They used the stones for latrines and walkways.
In 1967 when Egypt and Syria announced on national media their intention to attack Israel, Jordan joined and attacked Israel.
However, Israel defeated them all and took back Gaza and the “West Bank”, including capturing the Golan Heights from Syria from where it was shelling Israeli territory for sometime.
Due to international pressure, Israel, under prime minister Ariel Sharon, about two years ago, uprooted Jewish settlements from Gaza, from where Hamas has been firing rockets at Israel.
Last week alone it fired about 500 rockets. To those calling for peace talks, how can you talk peace with a person who does not recognise your existence and seeks to destroy you?
The goal of Arabs is simple: to wipe out the state of Israel from the map and create the twenty-second Arab state. If anyone doubts me, just listen to what Yasser Arafat, the late leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, told a reporter, Arianna Palazzi in 1970:
“The question of borders doesn’t interest us…From the Arab standpoint, we mustn’t talk about borders. Palestine is nothing but a drop in an enormous ocean.
Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it….The PLO is fighting Israel in the name of Pan-Arabism. What you call ‘Jordan’ is nothing more than Palestine.” Need I say more?
