Israel – Rightful Historic Homeland of Aboriginal Jews

Canadian MP and former justice minister Irwin Cotler: For Israel, rooted in the Jewish people, as an Abrahamic people, is a prototypical First Nation or aboriginal people, just as the Jewish religion is a prototypical aboriginal religion, the first of the Abrahamic religions.

In a WORD, the Jewish people is the only people that still inhabits the same land, embraces the same religion, studies the same Torah, hearkens to the same prophets, speaks the same aboriginal language – Hebrew – and bears the same aboriginal name, Israel, as it did 3,500 years ago.

Israel, then, is the aboriginal homeland of the Jewish people across space and time. It is not just a homeland for the Jewish people, a place of refuge, asylum and protection. It is the homeland of the Jewish people, wherever and whenever it may be; and its birth certificate originates in its inception as a First Nation, and not simply, however important, in its United Nations international birth certificate.

The State of Israel, then, as a political and juridical entity, overlaps with the “aboriginal Jewish homeland”; it is, in international legal terms, a successor state to the biblical, or aboriginal, Jewish kingdoms. [1]

Historical Roots

Jews

Aboriginal Rights to Israel, Aboriginal Native Jews to Israel “Palestine”

There is an enormous body of archaeological and historical evidence demonstrating that the Jewish People — like the Greek People or the Han Chinese People — is among the oldest of the world’s Peoples. Thus, it is well known that the Jewish People has more than 3,500 years of continuous history, with a subjective-objective national identity that, in each century, has kept a link to the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. For example, the Jewish Bible, the Christian Gospels and the Koran all specifically testify to the connection between the Jewish People and its historic homeland. Like other Peoples, the Jewish People has a right to self-determination. Though the self-determination of the Arab People is expressed via twenty-one Arab countries, Israel is the sole expression of the self-determination of the Jewish People, which of all extant Peoples, has the strongest claim to be considered aboriginal to the territory west of the Jordan River.

Thus, the Jewish People is aboriginal to Israel in the same way that, in Canada, certain First Nations are deemed aboriginal to their ancestral lands. And, it is noteworthy that the Supreme Court of Canada has decided that, where aboriginals maintain their historical connection with the land, aboriginal title can survive both sovereignty changes and influx of new populations resulting from foreign conquest.Yet, (bigotry by) Arabs, Muslims have denied that the Jews are a People within the context of the modern political and legal doctrine of the self-determination of Peoples. Keeping in mind that the Middle East has always had a significant Jewish population, including some Jews who, in each century, continued to live west of the Jordan River. Today, many of the sons and daughters of these Middle Eastern Jews are citizens of Israel, where they have been joined by Jews from many other countries. When In October 1917, the British Cabinet adopted, as a declared war aim, the creation of an entirely new country called “Palestine” to serve as “a national home for the Jewish People,” it was done to help realize the Jewish People’s self-determination on its ancestral lands… so was the announcment to the world of Jewish-National-Home Palestine in the November 1917 Balfour Declaration. As the international decision to establish “a national home for the Jewish People” was the sole rationale for the 1922 creation of Jewish-National-Home Palestine which, under the aegis of the League of Nations. While deep into the 20th century, Arab leaders themselves failed to recognize the right to self-determination of a distinct Palestinian Arab People. For example, as principal Arab leader at the 1919-1920 Paris Peace Conference, Prince Feisal specifically accepted the plan to create Palestine as “a national home for the Jewish People” and his father, the Hashemite King of the Hedjaz (later part of Saudi Arabia) was party to the 1920 Sevres Treaty that explicitly stipulated that the newly-created Palestine would be “a national home for the Jewish People.” [2]

One has described a “remarkable synergy” between the Australian aboriginals and the Jews: “The Jewish community is an ancient and oppressed people, as the Aborigines are; we were the indigenous people of the land of Israel who were kicked out of our land 2000 years ago.” [3]

Jews – Ancient Indigenous Natives in the area

There’s extensive research on The Dhimmi: (Indigenous) Jews & Christians Under Islam [4], 850,000 Jews had to flee Arab Muslim lands where they had lived for centuries – often longer than the Arabs who now claim to be its indigenous national people. [5]

JIMENA stands for: ‘Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa’, it is a human rights organization seeking to educate and advocate for the plight of Jewish refugees from the Middle East. Prior to 1948, approximately 850,000 Jews lived in Muslim countries of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Persian Gulf. Today, 99 percent of these ancient Jewish communities no longer exist due to Arab and Islamic government actions that directly led to their displacement. [6]

Jews are a multi-racial, multi-ethnic people. For about 50 years, the majority of the Jewish population of Israel has been Mizrahim – Jews indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa. Moreover, this community of Jews has lived in the Middle East and North Africa since time immemorial. Until the mid-twentieth century, in the 4,000-year history of the Jewish people, Mizrahim never left the region. (When Arab Muslims conquered the Middle East and North Africa, Jews were one of the few indigenous peoples that resisted conversion to Islam), [7]

Arabs

Arab immigrants and their lies about being “natives”

The Arabs in the Holy Land – Aliens, not Natives! [8], The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians. The current myth is that these Arabs were long established in “Palestine”, until the Jews came and “displaced” them. The fact is, that recent Arab immigration into the Land of Israel displaced the Jews. That the massive increase in Arab population was very recent is attested by the ruling of the United Nations: That any Arab who had lived in the Holy Land for two years and then left in 1948 qualifies as a “Palestinian refugee”. Palestinians are the newest of all the peoples on the face of the Earth, and began to exist in a single day by a kind of supernatural phenomenon that is unique in the whole history of mankind, as it is witnessed by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist that acknowledged the lie he was fighting for and the truth he was fighting against: “Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?” “We did not particularly mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians – they removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag”. “When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out”. [9], in fact, the myth of the Palestinian People serves as the justification for Arab occupation of the Land of Israel. [10]

An explanatory film came out to ‘dispel Arab propaganda’, on the tactics disguising the Arab immigrants as “indigenous native Palestinian” [11]

Even Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas Admits Palestinian Arabs Are Not Indigenous. From a speech given to the PLO [12]

A writer in: ‘The Myth Of The Palestinian People,’ Only one question never seems to be addressed: Who are the Palestinians? Who are these people who claim the Holy Land as their own? What is their history? Where did they come from? How did they arrive in the country they call Palestine? Not only pre-state Arabs lied about being indigenous. Even today, many prominent so-called Palestinians, it turns out, are foreign born. Edward Said, an Ivy League Professor of Literature and a major Palestinian propagandist, long claimed to have been raised in Jerusalem. However, in an article in the September 1999 issue of Commentary Magazine Justus Reid Weiner revealed that Said actually grew up in Cairo, Egypt, a fact which Said himself was later forced to admit. But why bother with Said? PLO chief Yasir Arafat himself, self declared ‘leader of the Palestinian people’, has always claimed to have been born and raised in ‘Palestine’. In fact, according to his official biographer Richard Hart, as well as the BBC, Arafat was born in Cairo on August 24, 1929 and that’s where he grew up. [13]

A writer in “The Real Palestinian Refugees”: Jews have lived in Israel/Palestine for 4000 years and those Jewish families who have constantly lived in the country since Biblical times, the mustarabim, are the indigenous Palestinians. (There has never been a 2000 year absence).

The first Arabs came to the country in the 7th century in the wake of their conquering armies after the death of Mohammed. They’ve been immigrating, and emigrating, ever since, bringing with them their civil wars (in which Jews were severely persecuted by both sides) and their screwed-up environmental concepts that turned forest into desert. Other groups of peoples also immigrated to Israel/Palestine during this time, especially the Druze. (Today, if you call a Druze an Arab, you’ve just insulted him. This was told to me by a Druze.) Perhaps the earliest Zionist pioneers did have to fight Arab marauders and make the desert bloom, but they did not come to an empty land. Maybe it was sparsely populated, but it was not empty of Jews.

In 1920/1. The first Palestinian refugees were Jews. In the aftermath of WWI, after the Arab riots.

In 1922, in a continuing policy of appeasing the Arabs, 75% 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 – a policy that continued until very recently. [14]

Desolated “Palestine” in the late 1800

The Land of Israel, according to dozens of visitors to the land, was, until the beginning of the last century, practically empty. Alphonse de Lamartine visited the land in 1835. [15]

On a visit to the Ottoman-controlled Holy Land in 1860, Mark Twain described it as “the prince of desolation.” “The hills are barren… the valleys unsightly deserts… peopled by swarms of beggars struck with ghastly sores and malformations… Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes… only the music of angels could charm its shrubs and flowers again into life.”

Other writers and artists visiting the Holy Land (chiefly from Britain and Germany) — as well as geographers, archeologists, and cartographers — were equally stunned by its utter desolation.

It was only toward the end of the 18th century, when a growing stream of Jewish immigrants rehabilitated the land — draining swamps, reclaiming deserts, and controlling the diseases (chiefly malaria) — that a decimated Arab population began increasing. The resuscitation of the land by the Jews and the economic opportunity they created brought an influx of Arab immigrants from dirt-poor neighboring Arab states to swell the number of Arabs in Palestine, so that by the turn of the century there were about 250,000 Arab Muslims and 150,00 Jews living there. 100,000 Christians and others was common colonial practice: divide and rule. In India, it enabled the British to subdue the subcontinent with few troops by pitting hostile segments of the indigenous population against each other. They employed this strategy in Palestine too. British officials, many of them avowed anti-Semites, fanned Arab resentment over broken British promises to make the Arabian chieftain, Faisal, king of Damascus and Syria, and redirected it against Jewish aspirations in Palestine. Their naming the mandate over the Holy Land “Palestine,” rather than the land of Israel, was a deliberate effort to obliterate the Jewish connection to the land by calling it by its Roman name. [16]

In the early 19th century, Palestine was a backward, neglected province of the Ottoman Empire. Travelers to Palestine from the Western world left records of what they saw there. The theme throughout their reports is dismal: The land was empty, neglected, abandoned, desolate, fallen into ruins.

In Jerusalem, all reports and journals of travelers, pilgrims and government representatives during these years, repeatedly record the poverty, filth and neglect and the desolate nature of the countryside. Early photographs show lepers in rags and dilapidated buildings. Jerusalem was surrounded by marauding bands of Bedouin Arabs and had to close her gates at nightfall and reopen them at first light, a practice that was similar in Biblical times.

Some quotes from the writings of these visitors before modern times:

Nothing there [Jerusalem] to be seen but a little of the old walls which is yet remaining and all the rest is grass, moss and weeds. [English pilgrim in 1590]

The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population. [British consul in 1857]

There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent [valley of Jezreel] — not for 30 miles in either direction… One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. … For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee … Nazareth is forlorn … Jericho lies a moldering ruin … Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation… untenanted by any living creature… A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds … a silent, mournful expanse … a desolation … We never saw a human being on the whole route … Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country … Of all the lands there are for dismal scenery Palestine must be the prince. The hills barren and dull, the valleys unsightly deserts [inhabited by] swarms of beggars with ghastly sores and malformations. Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes … desolate and unlovely … [Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad, 1867] [17]

National Liberation

Israel – result of a national Liberation of the aboriginal Jews

Israel can be seen as the result of the national liberation movement of the region’s aboriginal Jews. Liberation of the aboriginal Jews (and anyone else lucky enough to find refuge within Israel’s borders) from the twin fascisms of pan-Arabism and Islamism which have oppressed and even eliminated so many of the region’s aboriginal ethnic groups. Israel’s aboriginal Jews were not unique in accepting outside help (and even immigration) in their liberation struggle, so were Lebanon’s Maronites; Egypt’s Copts, Iraq and Turkey’s Kurds, and Iran’s Zoroastrians. [18], as a commentator said: It is immoral to ethnically cleanse Judea of its aboriginal Jews. as It is immoral to ethnically cleanse Australia of its Australian aborigines, It is immoral to ethnically cleanse Judea of its Jewish aborigines (Jews = originally from Judea). [19]

One major difference between the Jews’ return to the Land of Israel and the restitution of the title that indigenous groups have to their traditional lands in Australia and Canada is that the latter occurred within the political framework of states that have established legislative and judicial institutions and law enforcement agencies. These institutions draft the principles that define the relationships among all of their subjects, and they settle any disputes which might arise. In contrast, the Jews’ return to Palestine occurred in an international context in which such legislative, judicial, and law enforcement institutions were in their embryonic stages. [20]

ESSAY – May 2002
 
By Martin A. Lee
 
…Ahmed Huber: Neo-Nazi, Islamic convert…
 
The roots of the Muslim Brotherhood and, in many ways, the Nazi-Muslim axis go back to the organisation’s formation in Egypt in 1928. Marking the start of modern political “Islamic fundamentalism,” the Brotherhood from the outset envisioned a time when an Islamic state would prevail in Egypt and other Arab countries. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood coincided with the rise of fascist movements in Europe – a parallel noted by Muhammad Sa’id al-‘Ashmawy, former chief justice of Egypt’s High Criminal Court, who decried “the perversion of Islam” and “the fascistic ideology” that infuses the world view of the Brothers.
 
Youssef Nada, current board chairman of Al Taqwa, had joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man in Egypt during World War II. Nada and several of his cohorts in the Sunni Muslim fraternity were recruited by German military intelligence. Hassan al-Banna, the Egyptian schoolteacher who founded the Muslim Brotherhood, also collaborated with spies of the Third Reich.
 
Advocating a pan-Islamic insurgency in British-controlled Palestine, the Brotherhood proclaimed their support for the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, in the late 1930s. The Grand Mufti, the preeminent religious figure among Palestinian Muslims, was the most notable Arab leader to seek an alliance with Nazi Germany.
 
Although he loathed Arabs (he once described them as “lacquered half-apes who ought to be whipped”), Hitler understood that he and the Mufti shared the same rivals – the British, the Jews and the Communists. They met in Berlin, where the Mufti lived in exile during the war. The Mufti agreed to help organise a special Muslim division of the Waffen SS. Powerful radio transmitters were put at the Mufti’s disposal so that his pro-Axis propaganda could be heard throughout the Arab world.

Islam, Nazism, and Totalitarianism

During an interview conducted in the late 1930s (published in 1939), Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychiatry, was asked “…had he any views on what was likely to be the next step in religious development?” Jung replied, in reference to the Nazi fervor that had gripped Germany

We do not know whether Hitler is going to found a new Islam. He is already on the way; he is like Muhammad. The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god. That can be the historic future. 

Albert Speer, who was Hitler’s Minister of Armaments and War Production, wrote a contrite memoir of his World War II experiences while serving a 20-year prison sentence imposed by the Nuremberg tribunal. Speer’s narrative includes this discussion, which captures Hitler’s racist views of Arabs on the one hand, and his effusive praise for Islam on the other:
 
Hitler had been much impressed by a scrap of history he had learned from a delegation of distinguished Arabs. When the Mohammedans attempted to penetrate beyond France into Central Europe during the eighth century, his visitors had told him, they had been driven back at the Battle of Tours. Had the Arabs won this battle, the world would be Mohammedan today. For theirs was a religion that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and subjugating all nations to that faith. Such a creed was perfectly suited to the Germanic temperament. Hitler said that the conquering Arabs, because of their racial inferiority, would in the long run have been unable to contend with the harsher climate and conditions of the country. They could not have kept down the more vigorous natives, so that ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood at the head of this Mohammedan Empire. Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking, “You see, it’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?”

More on Fascism in the Arab world
 
A Backgrounder of the Nazi Activities in North Africa and the Middle East During the Era of the Holocaust
 
Key issues the reader should note: 1. The Islamic leadership (vis-à-vis the Mufti) did in fact have a significant relationship with the German government during the era of the Holocaust. 2. Pro-Nazi sentiment often resulted in grave consequences against the Jews in Arab countries during the Holocaust. 3. The Germans influenced the Arabs resulting in incitement that led to attacks against Jews in Arab cities during the Holocaust. 4. The Mufti promoted the idea to the Nazis of destroying the Jews before they could escape to Palestine. 5. The Axis powers persecuted Jews in North Africa during the Holocaust… 
 
• Bernard Lewis states: “We know that within weeks of Hitler’s coming to power in 1933, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem got in touch with the German consul general in Jerusalem, Doctor Heinrich Wolff, and offered his services.” 1 There, the Mufti spoke approvingly of the Nazi’s Jewish policies, particularly of the anti-Jewish boycott in Germany.
 
A Pan-Arab Committee established at Baghdad in the Spring of 1933 approached Fritz Grobba, the German Ambassador to Iraq, two years later with proposals for closer ties and cooperation.
 
• Hitler’s Mein Kampf was translated into four different Arabic translations and circulated between 1933-1939 in Beirut, Baghdad, Cairo and Berlin.
 
• In the first few months of WWII, shops in the towns of Syria would frequently show posters with Arabic sayings: “In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler.” In the streets of Aleppo… Damascus a popular verse in a local dialect said: “No more ‘Monsieur’, no more ‘Mister’-God in heaven, on earth Hitler!”

Nazi Hatred Dwells in the Arab World
By Shelomo Alfassa   February 23, 2007
 
…Although the Allies killed Nazi troops, destroyed their buildings, burned Nazi books, and even the fact that German Fuehrer killed himself, the Nazi spirit lived on. This spirit of Jew hatred was brought into the Arab world by Amin Al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
 
The relationship between Amin Al-Husseini and the Third Reich was strengthened when the Mufti visited the German Consul General at Jerusalem in 1937. After that, he met with Eichmann when he visited Palestine. This was when the Nazis were examining the possibility of deporting German Jews to Palestine. It has been reported that based on war-crimes testimony and the Eichmann trial transcripts, Eichmann and the Mufti enjoyed a close relationship. The Mufti would soon become the spiritual leader of the Islamic legions that were trained by-and-for the Nazis.
 
The rise of Hitler to power in 1933 marked a turning point in the new mufti?s activities. He sent a cable of congratulations to the Nazi leader and expressed support for the Jewish boycott in Germany. Soon after Hitler’s Mein Kampf was translated into four different Arabic translations and circulated between 1933-1939 in Beirut, Baghdad, Cairo and Berlin. In the first few months of WWII, shops in the towns of Syria would frequently show posters with Arabic sayings: “In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler.” In the streets of Aleppo, Homs and Damascus a popular verse in a local dialect said: “No more ‘Monsieur’, no more ‘Mister’-God in heaven, on earth Hitler!”
 
Anti-Jewish feeling continued to mount in the Middle East during the 1930s, as the Fascist and Nazi regimes and doctrines made increasing sense to many Arab nationalists. King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia sought German arms and contacts and was favorably received. Various delegations of Syrians and Iraqis attended the Nrnberg party congresses, and there were several different Arabic translations of Mein Kampf. Both the German and Italian regimes were active in propaganda in the Arab world, and there was much pro-German sentiment in Egypt.
 
Anti-Semitic elements seized upon the Palestine problem and Arab Revolt of
1936-1939 to portray international Jewry, including the Jews of the Maghrib, in a negative way to the Muslims, many of whom expressed solidarity with the Palestinian Arabs against Zionism and the British Authorities in the Mandate. Nazi propaganda broadcasts from Berlin and Stuttgart, as well as broadcasts from fascist Italy, added fuel to the ongoing anti-Jewish campaigns.
 
As part of the new, tough policy against Arab violence, the British dismissed Al-Husseini from his post as head of the Supreme Moslem Council. Fearing arrest, on October 12, 1937, the grand mufti donned disguise and fled to Lebanon, where the French gave him asylum. During 1937, Damascus was center for anti-Jewish activities. During this same year, a Nazi delegation went to Syria where a symbiosis was developed that would lead to intensified anti-Jewish sentiment, especially among both German and Arab youth.
 
Nazi Germany started transmitting in Arabic for the first time in April 1938. Germany thus became an Italian radio surrogate, providing a new programming dimension by the addition of anti-Jewish and anti-British themes broadcast by several prominent Arab exiles, including Rashid Ali El-Ghailani, an ex-prime minister of Iraq, and the Mufti, Al-Husseini.
 
The Mufti developed a world headquarters in Germany. In an office in Berlin, his activities included: 1. radio propaganda; 2. espionage and fifth column activities in the Middle East; 3. organizing Muslims into military units in Axis-occupied countries and in North Africa and Russia; and 4. establishment of the Arab Legions and the Arab Brigade. These groups were trained by the Nazis and used by them. The Mufti’s radio broadcasts were some of the most violent pro-Axis broadcasts ever produced. He had at least six stations, Berlin, Zeissen, Bari, Rome, Tokyo and Athens. He used these radio broadcasts to tell Muslims across the world to commit acts of sabotage and kill the Jews.
 
Hitler had made it clear that the project of killing Jews was by no means confined to Europe. As he explained to the Mufti, “his hopes of military victory in Africa and the Middle East would bring about the destruction of Jews in the Arab World.” In November of 1941 Hitler informed the Mufti at a meeting in Berlin that he intended to kill every Jew living in the Arab world, including those in Palestine as well as “Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Arabian peninsula, Egypt, and French Northwest Africa.” Hitler asserted that, in the event of a German advance into the Middle East, the German objective would be the “destruction” of “Judaism” in Palestine.
 
During 1941, in Mosul, Iraq, pro-Nazi Arab activists continued to propagandize against Jews. In Baghdad, when the war film For Freedom showed in cinemas, audiences cheered Hitler and booed Churchill. Leaflets circulated: “Rashid Ali, the Leader of all the Arabs, is returning with ropes and gallows to hang a number of criminal Jews, Christian traitors and other enemies of Islam.”
 
October 5, 1943, the Mufti arrived in Frankfort, Germany visiting the Research Institute on the Jewish Problem where he declared that Arabs and Germans were, “Partners and allies in the battle against world Jewry.” The Mufti beamed radio sermons to the Balkans, the countries of North Africa, and the Muslims in India. Arabs in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq and Egypt were called upon for Jihad against the British, these statements included the suggestion Muslims could “save their souls by massacring the Jewish infidels” they came across.
 
In a letter to Himmler, dated September 28, 1944, General Berger of the Waffen S.S. reported: “Today the Mufti came to see me for a long talk. He talked about his work and noted happily that the day is nearing he will head an army to conquer Palestine.” It was during this same year that the Mufti developed an Arab Brigade in 1944 that included Arabs trained in Holland by the Germans.
 
It was said the Mufti even visited Auschwitz and Maldanek. In both of these death camps, he paid close attention to the efficiency of the crematorium, spoke to the leading personnel and was generous in his praise for those who were reported as particularly conscientious in their work. He was on friendly terms with such notorious practitioners of the “Final Solution” as Rudolf Hess, the overlord of Auschwitz; Franz Zeireis of Mauthausen; Dr. Seidl of Theresienstadt; and Kramer, the butcher of Belsen.
 
After VE Day, May 8, 1945, Nazi officials were prepared to allow Jews to be diverted from concentration camps and even let children go to Palestine via “illegal” ships — all in exchange for cash. Yet, Al-Husseini insisted they get dispatched to concentration camps. That same year, liberated Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his activities in Bosnia, but with help from the Nazi SS, the Mufti had already escaped Germany with other members of his clan.”
 
While it is easy to reinvent history, it is not easy to overlook original first hand documents, tens of thousands which show the Mufti of Jerusalem in bed with Hitler. As Dr. Bernard Lewis of Princeton University recently said, “The Nazi propaganda impact was immense. We see it in Arabic memoirs of the period….”
 
The fierce anti-Jewish hatred that was exacerbated by the Mufti in the Islamic world, fueled by the German war machine, continues to resonate today throughout the Arab and Persian world. Incitement, instituted decades earlier, remains a root cause of anti-Semitism as well as the reason for hostility toward the State of Israel after its formation. This is the reason why over 900,000 Jewish people, born in Arab counries, were made refugees after 1948. Simply, because while the Nazis were destroyed and the Holocaust ended, the intense hostility instituted during that era lived on — and continues to live on in the Islamic world.

[…]
Newly independent Iraq gave formal undertakings on minority rights when joining the League of Nations in 1932 – and massacred thousands of Assyrian Christians within the year. Xenophobic nationalism, together with anti-British and anti-French feeling, gave rise to political parties and paramilitary youth movements of the Nazi and fascist type. The German envoy to Iraq, Dr Fritz Grobba, set about disseminating Nazi ideology and anti-Jewish propaganda, reinforcing local prejudice. Dozens of Jews were quietly dismissed (although some were reinstated after the community protested). Laws were gradually brought in to deprive Jews of jobs, then education and, eventually, property, residence and free movement. The Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, colluded with the ex-Prime Minister, Rashid Ali, to engineer a pro-Nazi coup, eventually culminating in the farhoud massacre of 1941. For two days and one night of looting, rape and murder, the mob rampaged through Jewish districts of Baghdad. One hundred and seventy Jews were killed.
 
Naturally, the Palestine question was also to have serious repercussions on the Jewish population. Menahem Salih Daniel, a Baghdad Jewish leader, expressed his misgivings as early as 1922 in a letter to the Secretary of the Zionist Organisation in London (quoted by Nessim Rejwan), even though there had as yet been no active resistance to Zionism:
 
It is . . . the feeling of every Arab that it is a violation of his legitimate rights, which it is his duty to denounce and fight to the best of his ability. Iraq always having been an active centre of Arab culture and activity, the public mind is always stirred up as regards Palestine.
 
One Jewess, growing up in the 1930s, recalls how the mob would rampage every anniversary of the Balfour declaration carrying clubs dipped in tar. It fell to a kindly neighbour to shelter her until the mob had passed.
 
In the 1941 farhoud too, when the forces of law and order failed to come to the Jews’ rescue, the last line of defence was again the kindly neighbour. As Nessim Rejwan writes,
 
Throughout the disturbances, with a few exceptions, Jewish homes in mixed neighbourhoods were defended and hundreds of Jews were saved by the willingness of their Muslim neighbours to protect them, in some cases at the cost of their own lives.
 
The broader picture
 
For the Jews, the 1930s and 1940s were a time of turmoil across the Arab world. Seven years before the farhoud, Jews had been killed in the pogrom of Constantine, Algeria. In Libya, 136 Jews, 36 of them children, were slaughtered in 1945. That same year, bloody riots erupted in Egypt and Aden, as in Syria in 1947.
 
All these events, targeting civilian communities, predated the creation of Israel. They demonstrated the vulnerability and insecurity to which Jews were exposed up to 50 years ago. Things might have turned out differently – Crown Prince Faisal, later the British-appointed King of Iraq, had signed a pact in 1919 with Chaim Weizmann viewing with sympathy the establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine. Instead, Arab ruling elites made Zionism a crime from 1948 onwards, passed discriminatory legislation and whipped up popular feeling against the Jews to distract attention from their illegitimacy, their internal problems and obligations.
[…]
 
The situation today
 
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the concept of Ottoman pluralism (whatever its limitations) could not be more remote. The Arab world is almost monolithically Muslim and judenrein. Pan-Arab nationalism is a spent force but pan-Islamism is asserting its grip. Those Copts, Assyrians and other groups who have not fled continue to be persecuted and marginalized.
 
The mass media of the Muslim world pump out a new antisemitism, inspired by Saudi Wahabism, fed by Koranic accounts of Jewish treachery and drawing on every antisemitic motif and conspiracy theory in the book. This antisemitism is a product of the Israel-Arab dispute, but a fight between two nationalisms over the same piece of land has changed, with the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, into an intractable religious conflict. Israel is an affront to the umma: what was once Muslim territory can never become non-Muslim. Palestine must be reconquered by jihad and the Jews revert to their natural status of dhimmitude. Until this alarming religious dimension is addressed and the forces of Islamic militancy subdued, the conflict will be insoluble.
http://www.isranet.org/Israzine/Israzine_V2N21_Dilemma.htm
 
…One thousand years before the advent of Islam, Jews in substantial numbers resided in what are today Arab countries. For centuries under Islamic rule, following the Moslem conquest of the region, Jews were considered ‘dhimmi’, or second-class citizens. But they were nonetheless permitted limited religious, educational, professional, and business opportunities.
 
It is within the last 55 years that the world witnessed the mass displacement of over 850,000 long-time Jewish residents from the totalitarian regimes, the brutal dictatorships and monarchies of Syria, Trans-Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.
 
The rise of pan-Arabism and independence movements in the 20th century resulted in an orchestrated, multi-state campaign against Zionism. These states vehemently opposed the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people. Hundreds of thousands of Jews resident in Arab countries were ensnared in this struggle.

Israel ‘occupies’ no Arab territories

Israel ‘occupies’ no Arab territories
By LOUIS RENE BERES

 

In urgent matters of national survival and geopolitics, words matter. The still generally unchallenged language referring provocatively to an Israeli “Occupation” always overlooks the pertinent and incontestable history of the West Bank (Judea/Samaria) and Gaza.

Perhaps the most evident omission concerns the unwitting manner in which these “Territories” fell into Israel’s hands in the first place. It is simply and widely disregarded that “occupation” followed the multi-state Arab aggression of 1967 – one never disguised by Egypt, Syria or Jordan.

A sovereign state of Palestine did not exist before 1967 or 1948. Nor was a state of Palestine ever promised by UN Security Council Resolution 242. Contrary to popular understanding, a state of Palestine has never existed. Never.

Even as a nonstate legal entity, “Palestine” ceased to exist in 1948, when Great Britain relinquished its League of Nations mandate. During the 1948-49 Israeli War of Independence (a war of survival fought because the entire Arab world had rejected the authoritative United Nations resolution creating a Jewish state), the West Bank and Gaza came under the illegal control of Jordan and Egypt respectively. These Arab conquests did not put an end to an already-existing state or to an ongoing trust territory. What these aggressions did accomplish was the effective prevention, sui generis, of a state of Palestine. The original hopes for Palestine were dashed, therefore, not by the new Jewish state or by its supporters, but by the Arab states, especially Jordan and Egypt.

LET US return to an earlier history. From the Biblical Period (ca. 1350 BCE to 586 BCE) to the British Mandate (1918 – 1948), the land named by the Romans after the ancient Philistines was controlled only by non-Palestinian elements. Significantly, however, a continuous chain of Jewish possession of the land was legally recognized after World War I, at the San Remo Peace Conference of April 1920. There, a binding treaty was signed in which Great Britain was given mandatory authority over “Palestine” (the area had been ruled by the Ottoman Turks since 1516) to prepare it to become the “national home for the Jewish People.” Palestine, according to the Treaty, comprised territories encompassing what are now the states of Jordan and Israel, including the West Bank and Gaza. Present-day Israel comprises only 22 percent of Palestine as defined and ratified at the San Remo Peace Conference.

In 1922, Great Britain unilaterally and without any lawful authority split off 78 percent of the lands promised to the Jews – all of Palestine east of the Jordan River – and gave it to Abdullah, the non-Palestinian son of the Sharif of Mecca. Eastern Palestine now took the name Transjordan, which it retained until April 1949, when it was renamed as Jordan. From the moment of its creation, Transjordan was closed to all Jewish migration and settlement, a clear betrayal of the British promise in the Balfour Declaration of 1917, and a patent contravention of its Mandatory obligations under international law.

On July 20, 1951, a Palestinian Arab assassinated King Abdullah for the latter’s hostility to Palestinian aspirations and concerns. Regarding these aspirations, Jordan’s “moderate” King Hussein – 19 years later, during September 1970 – brutally murdered thousands of defenseless Palestinians under his jurisdiction.

IN 1947, several years prior to Abdullah’s killing, the newly-formed United Nations, rather than designate the entire land west of the Jordan River as the long-promised Jewish national homeland, enacted a second partition. Curiously, considering that this second fission again gave complete advantage to Arab interests, Jewish leaders accepted the painful judgment. The Arab states did not. On May 15, 1948, exactly 24 hours after the State of Israel came into existence, Azzam Pasha, Secretary General of the Arab League, declared to a tiny new country founded upon the ashes of the Holocaust: “This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre.”

This unambiguous declaration has been at the very heart of all subsequent Arab orientations toward Israel, including those of “moderate” Fatah. Even by the strict legal standards of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Arab actions and attitudes toward the microscopic Jewish state in their midst has remained patently genocidal. For some reason, this persistence has repeatedly been made to appear benign.

IN 1967, almost 20 years after Israel’s entry into the community of nations, the Jewish state, as a result of its unexpected military victory over Arab aggressor states, gained unintended control over the West Bank and Gaza. Although the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war is codified in the UN Charter, there existed no authoritative sovereign to whom the Territories could be “returned.” Israel could hardly have been expected to transfer them back to Jordan and Egypt, which had exercised unauthorized and terribly cruel control since the Arab-initiated war of “extermination” in 1948-49. Moreover, the idea of Palestinian “self-determination” had only just begun to emerge after the Six Day War, and – significantly – had not even been included in UN Security Council Resolution 242, which was adopted on November 22, 1967.

For their part, the Arab states convened a summit in Khartoum in August 1967, concluding: “No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with it….” The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was formed three years earlier, in 1964, before there were any “Israeli Occupied Territories.” Exactly what was it, therefore, that the PLO sought to “liberate” between 1964 and 1967?

This question should now be raised in connection with the US-sponsored “Road Map To Peace in the Middle East,” a twisted cartography leading to “Palestine.”

THIS HAS been a very brief account of essential historic reasons why the so-called “Palestinian Territories” are not occupied by Israel. Several other equally valid reasons stem from Israel’s inherent legal right to security and self-defense. International law is not a suicide pact. Because a Palestinian state would severely threaten the very existence of Israel – a fact that remains altogether unhidden in Arab media and governments – the Jewish State is under no binding obligation to end a falsely alleged “Occupation.” No state can ever be required to accept complicity in its own dismemberment and annihilation.

Both Israel and the United States will soon have new leadership. Neither Jerusalem nor Washington should be deceived by the so-called “Road Map To Peace in the Middle East,” a twisted bit of highway that makes entirely inaccurate claims about “Palestinian Territories” and “Israeli Occupation.” For substantially documented reasons of history and national security, it is imperative that a twenty-third Arab state never be carved out of the still-living body of Israel.

If anyone should still have doubts about Palestinian intentions, they need look only to former Prime Minister Sharon’s “disengagement” from Gaza, an area that is now used by Hamas to stage rocket attacks upon Israeli noncombatants, and by al-Qaeda to mount future terrorist operations against American cities.

U.S. convicts (Syrian Arab) “Prince of Marbella” of arms deal

reuters | Nov 20, 2008

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. federal jury convicted a Syrian arms dealer and a co-defendant on Thursday of conspiring to sell $1 million in weapons…Monzer al-Kassar, 62, a longtime resident of Spain known as the “Prince of Marbella” for his lifestyle in the glitzy seaside town… Kassar has been selling weapons since the 1970s to the Palestinian Liberation Front and clients in Nicaragua, Bosnia, Croatia, Iran, Iraq and Somalia.
In 1995, Kassar was tried and acquitted of supplying arms that were used in the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship of the coast of Egypt. That resulted in the death of a wheelchair-bound Jewish-American, Leon Klinghoffer.
Klinghoffer’s two daughters, who sat through Kassar’s trial in New York, told reporters they felt vindicated by the verdict.
“Even though this case was not about the Achille Lauro, I wanted everyone there to know that my father was in the courtroom,” Lisa Klinghoffer said.

History Upside Down: The Roots of Palestinian Fascism and the Myth of Israeli Aggression
(Hardcover)

Editorial Reviews

Review

David Meir-Levi’s “brief
encounter” offers a solid approach to understanding the basics of the Arab-Israeli conflict, arguably the world’s most persistent and polarized political issue. History Upside Down applies great common sense where demagogues and ignorami too often dominate. — D. Pipes, director of the Middle East
Forum and author of Militant Islam Reaches America

In order for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be resolved, the demonology will have to be taken out of it, and the historical and political facts allowed to speak forthemselves dispassionately. David Meir-Levi shows how this can be done. — David Pryce-Jones, author of Betrayal: France, the Arabs, and the Jews

Product Description

Forty years ago, a significant part of the political, religious, intellectual, and terrorist leadership of the Arab world declared an all-out war against the documented history of the Middle East and America’s role in the Muslim world. Arab PR professionals and spinmeisters have rewritten the record for political and propaganda purposes.
Blaming the Victim is the first wave in a counterattack against that Arab war on

Blood, soil [Michel Aflaq composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil
and Islam]
jpost Sep, 24 2008 24 Sep 2008
Faith, blood, people and
soil… Such themes also come together in that most hideous of Middle Eastern
fascist movements, Ba’athism. Ba’athism’s founding thinkers, the Syrians Sati
al-Husri and Michel Aflaq, composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil
and Islam. They wrote of an Islam as the great cultural and intellectual
achievement of the Arab people, and it in turn formed a symbiotic relationship
with Arabism, such that they flowed from one another, locked in an eternal
embrace.

(As to the issue of Israel’s land to Arabs, it is important to note that non-Arabs – AKA Jews, don’t have any “rights” in the land occupied by “Palestinians”… it is virtually 100% ethnic cleansed, while Arabs make up 20% of Israel’s population).

September 2, 2008
HUMANE – ISRAEL – Israel’s extraordinary maintaining humane nature, policy, army, despite the ‘life & death’ challenges it constantly faces since its rebirth in 1948
Israel’s extraordinary help for the Arab “Palestinians” should overshadow any consequences in its war on terror stemming out of “Palestinian” initiated violence

Let alone current contributions and aid, even in the years that the “Palestinians” love to refer to as “occupation”, just How “bad” was it really for them?

1967 – 1993

* Economic prosperity, Israeli investment in “Palestinian” business, industry and infrastructure helped the PA GNP grow 13% annually between 1967 and 1980, per capita income grew tenfold, unemployment dropped from 40% to below 5%.

* Standard of living soared, Health gains: Israel built 166 clinics, provided universal insurance and medical programs for “Palestinians”. Mortality rates plummeted by 2/3 (1970-1990). Israel also expanded water, sewage and electric systems.

* Political and civil freedoms, Freedom of association, trade unions, civic organizations and opposition parties permitted. Voting rights extended to poorer classes and to women for local elections (for the first time in ‘Palestinian” – Arabs’ history).

* Freedom of the press, even for extreme anti Israel opinions.

* Educational development, Israel built 6 universities and 20 community colleges for the “Palestinians”. illiteracy dropped from 50% to 30% between 1967 and 1980.

* Jobs, Except during terrorists upsurges, Israel employs about 120,000 “Palestinians” from the disputed territories. Their earning accounts for the chunk of the income of their overall population.

* Funding, Israel allocated $90 million between 1993-1999, facilitated investments in “Palestinian”‘ private sector and granted 2,522 fellowships to “Palestinians” for professional training between 1995-1999.Israel contributed more annually than even Saudi Arabia until 1973. Kuwait and Libya did not match Israeli donations until 1980. (Bard pg. 182).

* Refugees, Between 1949 and 1971, Israel repatriated 140,000 “Palestinian” refugees who are now full Israeli citizens.

Israel Is Much Too Nice

By Irwin N. Graulich July 30, 2006

Just like America, Israel is much too kind to its enemies. Had America fought the war in Iraq in the same manner used by Roosevelt during WWII, Iraq would have been over 2 years ago–and it would be much closer to a real democracy. Israel–the only country to use rubber bullets against evil; the only country to use pinpoint targeted assassination to destroy monsters who plan mass murder against civilians; the only country to drop leaflets written in Arabic to warn population centers that the bombs are coming; the only country to absorb rocket attacks against totally innocent civilians for 6 years with almost no response, gets labeled, “the bad guys.” Imagine, tiny Israel continuously being blamed for using “excessive, disproportionate force” by the media, the Arab/Muslim world, the Vatican, Ireland and that ultimate p___, Jacques Chirac.

Please, I need a barf bag! These bleeding heart leftist/liberals want us to believe that the innocent (sic) Lebanese government and its people never saw any of the 13,000 rockets being shipped around their country which were pointed towards Israel. No Lebanese ever came across 20,000 Hezbollah fighters with weapons over their shoulders and heavy artillery, which covered 90% of the territory south of Beirut. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora knew nothing about large weapons shipments sent via plane, ship and truck from Syria, Iran and Egypt. Please, I need a barf bag! The reason that the Arab/Muslim world uses the terminology, “excessive force on innocent civilians,” is because according to the Koran they are supposed to be tough and win the battles. Yet a small bunch of bible studying Yeshiva boys and “weak looking” Jews in Israel completely decimated all those tough Arab countries in 1948, 1967 and 1973.

The Muslim world of over 1 billion people can never defeat 5 million Jews, no matter how hard they try–and they all know it. So they have turned to the Joseph Goebbals method of “Propaganda Weaponry,” and most of the world, except for America, has fallen for it. America is without question, a much better, more moral country than all the rest of the world combined, by a factor of 1000.

The entire world sees this fact quite clearly, which is the reason why America is constantly being criticized. It is difficult for other nations to see goodness prevail, when they had absolutely nothing to do with it. So how and why did all this begin? As usual, it is blamed on the age old Arab-Israeli problem, a code word for the Muslim-Jewish battle, aka Islam versus the Judeo/Christian world. According to the Koran, it should be a lot easier for Islamicists to prevail, since they have Mohammed on their side. Well, the God of Moses seems to be superior, a smack in the face to over 1 billion people. There is a man in Iran who considers himself to be a present day Messiah, a prophet cut from the same kaffiah as Mohammed. His name–Ahmadinejad (pronounced “A–mad–dog–on–Jihad”). Denying The Holocaust, calling Israel a Nazi state, labeling Americans infidels are just a few of his many talents. Unfortunately, it is people like him and Osama that make Islam appear to be a total fraud.

The crazy mullahs throughout the Arab/Muslim world refuse to acknowledge the direct, obvious involvement in current events of the One true God on earth, who began his reign in the Old and New Testament. Of course the secular media will never acknowledge an obvious truth when it emanates from a religious perspective. They are simply too sophisticated to believe in so called “voodoo.”

The key message of Judaism and Christianity is to make God’s world a better place. It seems that God checked his “Moral Radar” here on earth, only to discover the evil of Radical Islam, a cancer matasticizing throughout the Middle East. To protect this terrific world from evil, God initially used the Palestinians, who He first tried to placate by permitting Israel to give up some land which He originally promised to the Jews. God made the Jews leave Gaza “temporarily,” in order to show the world that even when Israel painfully gives up territory without getting a thing in return, peace is still impossible. Instead of taking the greenhouses that Jews built in Gaza to create an industry which would cultivate and export flowers to Europe, thus creating a vibrant economy, the Palestinian Arabs immediately destroyed all the irrigation piping and greenhouses because “the Jews” built them. No thank you’s, no gratitude–only terrorism in return. Please–I need a barf bag! God was not very happy with the deeds of Palestinian Arabs heaped upon the original Palestinians–the Jews. So, the God of the Torah made the evil Palestinian Arabs sneak into Israeli territory and kidnap Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier. Big mistake, because this action gave Israel the moral authority to “burn evil out of the Palestinian midst,” as the Bible teaches.

Somehow, the world reaction to this event was not the usual overreaction condemning Israel. Palestinian ingratitude was recognized and except for a few radical leftists, the coffee shops throughout Europe ignored the situation, allowing the socialists to drink their morning kava and read the newspapers. Again, the secular world has not paid attention to one of the most important statements in the Bible–“Those who bless the Jews will be blessed, and those who curse the Jews will be cursed.”

No country in history has blessed the Jews more than America, and no country is as blessed today. No countries throughout history have cursed the Jews more than the Arab/Muslim world, and no countries have been more cursed than those nations today. With Southern Evil being contained, Northern Evil was now growing uncontrollably to Israel’s north. So again, God pulled a few more strings and “allowed” evil men to cross the border into Israel and kidnap two Israeli soldiers. Unfortunately, those Hezbollah terrorists have “Free Will,” which resulted in four dead Israelis. So now the cancer is finally being cleaned out by the IDF surgeons, in one of the most ethical war surgeries on record. Decent religious people around the world understand that there is no need to worry about goodness being triumphant, since the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is with Israel.

This is the reason why Israel can do virtually whatever it desires against the evil terrorists and the nations that harbor them, without much of a response. Let the critics say whatever they want. Ahmadinejad is just a hooker for the mullah pimps in his country, who all realize that the prophecies found in the Koran are just not happening. Quite a rude awakening for those Islamic religious figures who see more truth and strength in the Old and New Testament; which is why they are trying to go nuclear. What these Iranian fools do not realize is that if they attack Israel or America, they will receive the same results as the Palestinians and Lebanese. So bring it on Mr. Mad Dog Jihad, and you can rest assured that the Iranian oil fields will have signs in Hebrew very shortly. And the world will not complain much when they see their gas pumps reading $1.00 a gallon.

Israel – good vs evil

More on humane Israel the giver and Arab Palestinian the exploiter

December 26, 2006

Reality Check

Excessive restrain not “excessive force”

The restrained Israel that is only branded with ridiculous charges of “excessive force”.Since the cease fire broken between Israel and all “Palestinians” (December 2006), more than 55 rockets were launched from “Palestinians” on Israeli civilians including on a nursery school in Sderot, that particular attack was immediately after Israel pledged for releasing 100 Million dollars to them.But the UN can never seem to find any time to pressure “Palestinians”, the same UN will jump all over Israel as soon as some Arabs get hurt by Arab militants’ cruel tactics.

The cycle of responding fire for olive branches not “cycle of violence”

But this cycle of Israel giving and giving and Palestinian Arabs only responding with more and more violence is as old at least as this group started to call themselves as ‘Palestinians”. Take for example this biggest give away for the “Palestinians” that no Arab nation was ever willing to do, which is giving them land that was never theirs as a ‘sovereign land’, the Gaza give away in 2005, What was the Palestinian Arab respond?You guessed it, more and more violence, stabbing civilians, bombing or continuous attempt-to-bomb, massacres.Let alone the “Palestinian” almost collective dark voice for more crimes, in so shamefully overwhelmingly supporting the radical racist Hamas, at the time that Israel’s heroic painful dramatic sacrifice of evacuating families was seen & heard around the globe, when compassionate Israelis overwhlmingly were thinking ahead for a brighter future, when these courageous Zionists decided overlooking narrow borders so vital to it’s security for the sake of peace, these Arabisn bloodthirsty war mongers hurried only to vote in these masters of genocide, for the cruel endorsers of mass suicide, for the cult of death, another huge step backwards, just as Israel makes another giant step forward, towards a slight chance of peace & the betterment for the coming generations of both people.But this of course is hardly a recent picture, this has been happening time & time again, each gesture & good will Israel has been presenting the Arabs, whether it is releasing dangerous prisoners, or more financial help, it never saw/sees anything positive feedback.

The Arab Palestinians see Israel’s gesture as “weakness”

Undoubtedly the more Israel gives them the more their Arab adversaries see it as a weakness, and not as a natural good hearted Israel, just as these cold hearted terrible Arab racists that have been brainwashed into ‘not seeing the Zionists as humans’, can’t seem to see the humanity that motivates Israeli soldiers’ hesitation to fire when Arab terrorists hide among civilians, they interpret it of course as “cowardice”..This reaffirms the danger, appeasing Islamic terrorists contain.

TOO NICE TO WIN? ISRAEL’S DILEMMA

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

From John Podhoretz in the NY Post: WHAT if liberal democracies have now evolved to a point where they can no longer wage war effectively because they have achieved a level of humanitarian concern for others that dwarfs any really cold-eyed pursuit of their own national interests?What if the universalist idea of liberal democracy – the idea that all people are created equal – has sunk in so deeply that we no longer assign special value to the lives and interests of our own people as opposed to those in other countries?

What if this triumph of universalism is demonstrated by the Left’s insistence that American and Israeli military actions marked by an extraordinary concern for preventing civilian casualties are in fact unacceptably brutal? And is also apparent in the Right’s claim that a war against a country has nothing to do with the people but only with that country’s leaders? Can any war be won when this is the nature of the discussion in the countries fighting the war? Can any war be won when one of the combatants voluntarily limits itself in this manner?Could World War II have been won by Britain and the United States if the two countries did not have it in them to firebomb Dresden and nuke Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Didn’t the willingness of their leaders to inflict mass casualties on civilians indicate a cold-eyed singleness of purpose that helped break the will and the back of their enemies?

Didn’t that singleness of purpose extend down to the populations in those countries in those days, who would have and did support almost any action at any time that would lead to the deaths of Germans and Japanese?What if the tactical mistake we made in Iraq was that we didn’t kill enough Sunnis in the early going to intimidate them and make them so afraid of us they would go along with anything? Wasn’t the survival of Sunni men between the ages of 15 and 35 the reason there was an insurgency and the basic cause of the sectarian violence now?If you can’t imagine George W. Bush issuing such an order, is there any American leader you could imagine doing so?And if America can’t do it, can Israel?

Could Israel – even hardy, strong, universally conscripted Israel – possibly stomach the bloodshed that would accompany the total destruction of Hezbollah?If Lebanon’s 300-plus civilian casualties are already rocking the world, what if it would take 10,000 civilian casualties to finish off Hezbollah? Could Israel inflict that kind of damage on Lebanon – not because of world opinion, but because of its own modern sensibilities and its understanding of the value of every human life?

Where do these questions lead us?What if Israel’s caution about casualties among its own soldiers and Lebanese civilians has demonstrated to Hezbollah and Hamas that as long as they can duck and cover when the missiles fly and the bombs fall, they can survive and possibly even thrive?What if Israel has every capability of achieving its aim, but cannot unleash itself against a foe more dangerous, more unscrupulous, more unprincipled and more barbaric than even the monstrous leaders of the Intifada it managed to quell after years of suicide attacks?

And as for the United States, what if we have every tool at our disposal to win a war – every weapons system we could want manned by the most superbly trained military in history – except the ability to match or exceed our antagonists in ruthlessness?Is this the horrifying paradox of 21st century warfare? If Israel and the United States cannot be defeated militarily in any conventional sense, have our foes discovered a new way to win? Are they seeking victory through demoralization alone – by daring us to match them in barbarity and knowing we will fail?

Are we becoming unwitting participants in their victory and our defeat? Can it be that the moral greatness of our civilization – its astonishing focus on the value of the individual above all – is endangering the future of our civilization as well?

Looking for, trying, sweating in efforts NOT to hit at ANY CIVILIANS (in anti terrorists operations).

For not pushing US to boycott the Arabs as Arab-Muslims do so with Europe.

For taking in the Arab “Palestinians” when no Arab nation wants them while the guilty part of those ‘refugees’ is still Arab Leaders’, that have chased them out in 1948 with promises of ‘defeating’ Israel, and all these years did NOT let Western aid to reach those poor in order to defame Israel.

For giving land to the Arab SETTLERS (with no more than a recent history there) while NON of the ARAB GOLIATH LAND-COUNTRIES would give them an inch.

For being overly morally right in feeling guilty for DEFENDING THEIR lives against Arab Muslims mass murderer-terrorists, that comes on the terrible expense of some Arabists using it to tarnish in a silly false “pointing-finger’ at kind Israel.

For not treating the Arabs in a racial discriminatory even though danger is at every restaurant, bus, bus-stops, markets, etc., Would they differentiate, no Arab Genocide Bomber would be able to mingle in & Comit the atrocities.

For NOT behaving like their “brotherly” Arab-Syria Arab Jordan (& others) that have just simply massacred 10,000 (some estimate 25,000) in one month after Radical Muslim “Palestinians” started uprising.

For not AS banging daily the UN & International media with real charges on “Palestinian” Arab leaders’ crimes on their own people’s kids & on Israeli civilians, While Islamo Arab world feels a ‘duty’ to defame this struggling victim Israel via blatant vicious libels & lies & never apologize even when exposed.

Doing It the Arab Way

Faces of the Israeli Army

By SHALOM FREEDMAN A PSALM IN JENIN
By Brett Goldberg
304 pages. Modan Publishing House.

 

In March 2002, Israel suffered the worst month of terror attacks in its history. Over two hundred people were killed and many hundreds more injured. This wave of attacks climaxed at Netanya?s Park Hotel, where on Seder night a suicide bomber murdered thirty people and injured scores more. In response to this horrifying crime, the Israeli government undertook the sort of military operation many Israelis had been clamoring for during the previous months. Operation Defensive Shield was launched; it turned out to be decisive in greatly reducing Palestinian terror in the following days and months. The most well-known focus of military action during this operation was Jenin, the West Bank city considered the capital of Palestinian suicide-bombing…

Goldberg does not confine himself to the military action alone but also tells the stories of the soldiers’ families. He depicts the ethnic mix of Israelis and their moral and religious strengths. The unit he concentrates upon consists in large part of what are known in Israel as “national-religious” soldiers, though it includes a good mix of other types, as well.

Remarkably, Goldberg shows soldiers fighting for their lives and, at the same time, contending with moral issues, seeking to fulfill their extremely unpleasant duties in the most humane way possible. Despite snipers nests, booby traps, ambushes, and above all their own losses and injuries, these soldiers maintain their own dignity and consideration for their enemies. Many within Israel claim this consideration was taken too far in Jenin: had Israel acted as “normal army,” some say, and bombed the camp from above (as, for example, the U.S. did when it razed a building in Baghdad in an effort to kill Saddam Hussein), sixteen of the Israelis soldiers who were killed in an ambush in the camp would still be alive today.

Goldberg’s book illustrates the thesis that to truly understand the way an army works, one must look at relations within platoons and small units. The friendship networks Goldberg presents enforce our sense of how loyalty and courage play a central role in the life of the everyday soldier. There are no superheroes here, but plenty of quietly courageous people, a number of whom regrettably are lost in the battle.

Clearly and movingly written, Goldberg’s book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand the challenges Israel, its people, and its soldiers have faced in the past three years, and continue to face now.

ISRAEL VS ARAB – THE WAR OF THE HUMANITARIAN VS THE UN-HUMANITARIAN

January 22, 2008

No one has been talking in the mainstream media about the daily “Palestinian” barrage of missiles aimed specifically at Israeli kids, the southern Israel under siege of “Palestinian” occupation, the trembling fear of Israeli women for their children’s safety in Sderot (Fear and trauma as rockets impact Israeli town), but everyone is up in arms
if Israel acts.

No one has been talking in mainstream media as Israel has been successfully eliminating terrorists [with unimaginable efforts in carrying it out] without any damage upon civilians in hundreds of operations, but I bet you, you’ll hear them loud and clear, if its humane precision-tactics fails just once.
Just as no one in the mainstream media talks about the constant Israel VS Arab, as humanitarian vs un-humanitarian war, “Palestinian” and Hezbollah Arabs always try to draw Israel into responding in operations, awaiting cheerfully such responds to play the fake “victim” card, Israel – however – is never happy to carry out any anti terror activities, and when reluctantly it has to go ahead with it, it puts immense efforts to fail Arabs’ desire for mass casualties among its civilians, Israel’s struggle against Arab cruelty on its population is
relentless, but never appreciated.

Why is humanitarian Israel still (January 2008) supplying two
thirds of fuel supply to un-humanitarian “Palestinians”?

I mean, What would one expect from a self hating sickening hypocritical typical whining of the NPR reporting about a “humanitarian crisis” in Gaza? (Jan. 2008 at the height of Arab attacking rockets) What’s “humanitarian” about Hamas-tan? [as twisted NPR is, it first reports of what Hamas “says” that all fuel supply is shut down, only thereafter is quotes Israel’s declaration and harsh accusation that the “Palestinians” simply LIE, and that two thirds are still supplied, as if the world hasn’t seen enough of the minus zero credibility of “what Palestinian Pallywood says”], the cruel terrorist militant Islamic totalitarian regime? The oppression of non Muslims (Christians per se)? The investments of its limited resources into deadly Jihad, or the criminal use of its civilians to attack Israeli civilians via rockets and other cowardice methods?

Try and make a survey, a poll on how many are really aware of the targets by the Arabs, kids! how they fire exactly when and where the children go to kindergarten (Barrage of rockets hits Sderot as kids go to school), the fact that with God’s grace the damage is low is of course totally irrelevant to Arabs’ [usual] genocide attempts.

As it is rare for the NPR, it shockingly did interview some Israelis about the Hamas attack of Israeli civilians and how Israel should respond to it, as one Israeli has put it very real: “We Israelis have been setting us up in high moral standards we have a huge dilemma on how to respond”.
Yet, it is rather the Arab Palestinian “victim-hood” that still manages to
generate fans.
Amazing how the terrible unromantic cult of destruction is still not seen by some as what it is, a self inflicted cult, and that no one else can ever be blamed on whatever is going on there.

And just as you thought that the Fatah is much better, you hear that the “moderate” Abbas regime decided to allocate 40% of the billions of dollars in aid [the Europeans have pledged to give] to the Hamas terror “government”.

I have got news for the fake “humanitarian” singers – reporters in biased media: There’s nothing humanitarian about pointing fingers anywhere outside the “Palestinian” cruel leadership and
those that elect them.

Israel suffers because Israel is BETTER!

(Written in 2003)

What happened when the Palestinian Arabs tried to take control of Jordan?

King Hussein of Jordan ejected Arafat’s Palestinians in September 1970, called Black September because they were trying to take over his kingdom. King Hussein drove them into Lebanon after killing more than 10,000. The Lebanese welcomed the fleeing Palestinians into their bosom, but suddenly found themselves under attack by Arafat’s Palestinians who set up a mini Terror State within Lebanon. For the next 12 years terror raged and over 100,000 Lebanese were murdered by their Palestinian brothers.

But BEAUTIFUL Israel: risks lives going DOOR to DOOR on the look out for Arab TERRORISTS.

Door to Door Risky Operations

(In Jenin…) You [IDF] went door-to-door, risking young Israeli lives, in a town that was booby trapped with explosives from top to bottom. In any other war, rockets from the air force would have been launched, demolishing everything in sight, with no regard for civilian lives. Remember Nagasaki and Hiroshima? But you – Israel, a country built on family-oriented, freedom loving people – you had to worry about civilian casualties.

Instead of the mass excitement in most of the mass media to attack Israel for daring to defend itself with that silly charge of “excessive force”, you never hear one word of appreciation of the immense sacrifice in its lives and it’s security for the customary warning to non combatants to leave the area before operations, including often cases of alerting even the Hamas terror leaders’ wives…

A Tale of Two
Peoples
  
By Dennis Prager
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, March 25, 2008
 
The long-suffering Tibetans have been in the news. This happens perhaps
once or twice a decade. In a more moral world, however, public opinion would be
far more preoccupied with Tibetans than with Palestinians, would be as harsh on
China as it is on Israel, and would be as fawning on Israel as it now is on
China.
But, alas, the world is, as it has always been, a largely
mean-spirited and morally insensitive place, where might is far more highly
regarded than right.
 
Consider the facts: Tibet, at least 1,400 years old, is one of the world’s
oldest nations, has its own language, its own religion and even its own
ethnicity. Over 1 million of its people have been killed by the Chinese, its
culture has been systematically obliterated, 6,000 of its 6,200 monasteries have
been looted and destroyed, and most of its monks have been tortured, murdered or
exiled.
 
Palestinians have none of these characteristics. There has never been a
Palestinian country, never been a Palestinian language, never been a Palestinian
ethnicity, never been a Palestinian religion in any way distinct from Islam
elsewhere. Indeed, “Palestinian” had always meant any individual living in the
geographic area called Palestine. For most of the first half of the 20th
century, “Palestinian” and “Palestine” almost always referred to the Jews of
Palestine. The United Jewish Appeal, the worldwide Jewish charity that provided
the nascent Jewish state with much of its money, was actually known as the
United Palestine Appeal. Compared to Tibetans, few Palestinians have been
killed, its culture has not been destroyed nor its mosques looted or plundered,
and Palestinians have received billions of dollars from the international
community. Unlike the dying Tibetan nation, there are far more Palestinians
today than when Israel was created.
 
None of this means that a distinct Palestinian national identity does not
now exist. Since Israel’s creation such an identity has arisen and does indeed
exist. Nor does any of this deny that many Palestinians suffered as a result of
the creation of the third Jewish state in the area, known — since the Romans
renamed Judea — as “Palestine.”
 
But it does mean that of all the causes the world could have adopted, the
Palestinians’ deserved to be near the bottom and the Tibetans’ near the top.
This is especially so since the Palestinians could have had a state of their own
from 1947 on, and they have caused great suffering in the world, while the far
more persecuted Tibetans have been characterized by a morally rigorous doctrine
of nonviolence.
 
So, the question is, why? Why have the Palestinians received such
undeserved attention and support, and the far more aggrieved and persecuted and
moral Tibetans given virtually no support or attention?
 
The first reason is terror. Some time ago, the Palestinian leadership
decided, with the overwhelming support of the Palestinian people, that murdering
as many innocent people — first Jews, and then anyone else — was the fastest
way to garner world attention. They were right. On the other hand, as The
Economist notes in its March 28, 2008 issue, “Tibetan nationalists have hardly
ever resorted to terrorist tactics…” It is interesting to speculate how the
world would have reacted had Tibetans hijacked international flights,
slaughtered Chinese citizens in Chinese restaurants and temples, on Chinese
buses and trains, and massacred Chinese schoolchildren.
 
The second reason is oil and support from powerful fellow Arabs. The
Palestinians have rich friends who control the world’s most needed commodity,
oil. The Palestinians have the unqualified support of all Middle Eastern
oil-producing nations and the support of the Muslim world beyond the Middle
East. The Tibetans are poor and have the support of no nations, let alone
oil-producing ones.
 
The third reason is Israel. To deny that pro-Palestinian activism in the
world is sometimes related to hostility toward Jews is to deny the obvious. It
is not possible that the unearned preoccupation with the Palestinians is
unrelated to the fact that their enemy is the one Jewish state in the world.
Israel’s Jewishness is a major part of the Muslim world’s hatred of Israel. It
is also part of Europe’s hostility toward Israel: Portraying Israel as
oppressors assuages some of Europe’s guilt about the Holocaust — “see, the Jews
act no better than we did.” Hence the ubiquitous comparisons of Israel to
Nazis.
 
A fourth reason is China. If Tibet had been crushed by a white European
nation, the Tibetans would have elicited far more sympathy. But, alas, their
near-genocidal oppressor is not white. And the world does not take mass murder
committed by non-whites nearly as seriously as it takes anything done by
Westerners against non-Westerners. Furthermore, China is far more powerful and
frightening than Israel. Israel has a great army and nuclear weapons, but it is
pro-West, it is a free and democratic society, and it has seven million people
in a piece of land as small as Belize. China has nuclear weapons, has a trillion
U.S. dollars, an increasingly mighty army and navy, is neither free nor
democratic, is anti-Western, and has 1.2 billion people in a country that
dominates the Asian continent.
 
A fifth reason is the world’s Left. As a general rule, the Left
demonizes Israel and has loved China since it became Communist in 1948. And
given the power of the Left in the world’s media, in the political life of so
many nations, and in the universities and the arts, it is no wonder vicious China has been idolized and humane Israel
demonized.
 
The sixth reason is the United Nations, where Israel has been condemned in
more General Assembly and Security Council resolutions than any other country in
the world. At the same time, the UN has voted China onto its Security Council
and has never condemned it. China’s sponsoring of Sudan and its genocidal acts
against its non-Arab black population, as in Darfur, goes largely unremarked on
at the UN, let alone condemned, just as is the case with its cultural genocide,
ethnic cleansing and military occupation of Tibet.
 
The seventh reason is television news, the primary source of news for much
of mankind. Aside from its leftist tilt, television news reports only what it
can video. And almost no country is televised as much as Israel, while video
reports in Tibet are forbidden, as they are almost anywhere in China except
where strictly monitored by the Chinese authorities. No video, no TV news. And
no TV, no concern. So while grieving Palestinians and the accidental killings of
Palestinians during morally necessary Israeli retaliations against terrorists
are routinely televised, the slaughter of over a million Tibetans and the
extinguishing of Tibetan Buddhism and culture are non-events as far as
television news is concerned.
 
The world is unfair, unjust and morally twisted. And rarely more so than in
its support for the Palestinians — no matter how many innocents they target for
murder and no matter how much Nazi-like anti-Semitism permeates their media —
and its neglect of the cruelly treated, humane Tibetans.

Israeli Restraint Continues to Enrage Muslim World

AZCONSERVATIVE http://www.azconservative.org/Semmens1.htm

Israel’s restraint in the face of Kassam rockets launched from Palestinian territory is said to be heightening tensions in the Middle East.

Two rockets slammed into Sderot, one of them striking a community center and another hitting a bus. Three people were injured. A separate attack hit the port city of Ashkelon. In total, 45 rockets have been launched from Gaza into Israel since the November 26 truce went into effect.

Israel’s lack of retaliatory response has been widely decried as “provocative.” ‘The failure of the Jews to strike back reveals their evil scheming nature,’ said Sheik Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah. “It’s inhuman to adhere to a truce under such conditions. The evidence of the Jews’ link to satanic powers couldn’t be clearer. For the love of God they must be exterminated.”

Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad called Israel’s actions ‘sinister.’ “Throughout recorded history the Jews have tried to lull the unwary by their nonviolent responses to pogroms and repression,” Ahmadinejad warned. “Their diabolical cunning brought down the great Adolf Hitler. It will bring down the world if we are not careful.”

The United Nations has promised to look into the matter. “We should not allow ourselves to be fooled by Jewish trickery,” outgoing Secretary-General Kofi Annan advised. “If Jews are being attacked there must be a good reason. We will get to the bottom of this.”

One must wonder how Musa sees the world. A black Muslim refugee from the Sudan, Musa’s refusal to be drafted into the Sudanese army to fight the Arab janjaweed militiamen led to the burning of his village and the murder or disappearance of his 16-member family.

Yet those who carried out the retribution killings were not government forces, but Arab militiamen themselves, armed by the Sudanese government, the very men whom the Sudanese military was trying to defeat.

Hamas’s Human Shields

(Updated Mar 4, 2008)
…That same month, the IAF warned Muhammad Weil Baroud, responsible for firing Kassam rockets at Israel, to evacuate his home in Beit Lahiya in advance of an air strike. Instead, hundreds of locals, mostly women and children, were recruited to Baroud’s house. Israel suspended the air strike, lest these human shields be harmed. In response to the incident, Hamas crowed: “We won. From now on we will form human chains around every house threatened with demolition.”

The above episode illustrates the potential problems with Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i’s proposal to bulldoze houses from which rockets are fired. The same goes for suggestions such as warning systems giving Gazan civilians time to get out. Even smoke bombs directed at precise coordinates to further warn civilians to depart – in advance of live fire and the destruction of launch sites – could be thwarted by human shields.

Principled despite its vilified reputation, Israel wrestles with a wrenching quandary callously imposed upon it. But Israel shouldn’t be the only one to grapple with the ruthlessness of terrorists toward their human shields. Democracies the world over need to internalize what is taking place here, to pin blame where it is due, and to condemn Hamas for its heartlessness toward its own people.

REMEMBERING THE ‘SEPTEMBER BLOOD TRAIL’ ANOTHER ISLAMIC PALESTINIAN “CONTRIBUTION” TO (against) HUMANITY

In September three jetliners– one American, one British and one Swiss– were hijacked by Palestinian Arabs to Jordan. The passengers were held hostage. This action further undermined the sovereignty of King Hussein’s government. The King decided to take action and fighting broke out between the Jordanian Army and the Palestine Liberation Organization. The Syrians attempted to intervene on the side of the P.L.O. but Israel warned that they, too, would then intervene. The Jordanian army defeated the P.L.O. whose forces fled to Lebanon.

Jordan killed Palestinians between 10,000 to 25,000 that’s more Palestinians in one month September 1970, than Israel has killed during the three years of heighten Palestinian suicide bombings that began in the fall of 2000. The brutality of the Jordanian Army toward Palestinian dissidents and terrorists was far more egregious than anything Israel has ever done.

http://www.middle-east-info.org/league/jordan/jordan.htm

This clash within Islamic countries between Islamist religious forces and modernizers like Kemal Atatuerk in Turkey, Habib Burgiba in Tunisia, Gemal Abdel Nasser, Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarek in Egypt, the deposed Reza Shah Pahlavi in Iran, and even Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and Islamist religious forces is long, deep and powerful. The modernizers in these countries have usually come from military rather than civilian backgrounds, and by transforming one of the few intact institutions of the old regime – namely the military bureaucracy – into an instrument of political power and hegemony, they have consolidated their authority, often with limited popular support and democratic institutions. All over the Islamic Arab world this military modernization paradigm, in which Syria and Iraq had participated through the Ba’ath regimes in the nineteen-seventies, has lost ground. The defeat of the Egyptian armies in the hands of Israel during the Six Day War, the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights and the west Bank, are reminders to the military elite of these countries, less of the plight of the Palestinians, whom they have massacred and oppressed when it suited their interests (remember Black September in Jordan in 1970, in which Palestinians were killed by the thousands; or the persecution of the Palestinians by the Saudis because of their support for Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War), but of the failure of their own truncated projects of modernization. Israel is a thorn on the side of these regimes, whose very presence is a bleeding reminder of their own failure to modernize in military, technological and economic terms.

http://www.ssrc.org/sept11/essays/benhabib.htm

The guerrillas’ power grew steadily in Jordan, to which 380,000 Palestinians had fled after Israel occupied the West Bank in 1967, joining others who had arrived in 1948 when Israel was founded. By 1970, thousands of guerrillas were there, many of them adherents of Al Fatah.

Spurred on by Palestinian radicals, Mr. Arafat committed what was to be the first of several blunders: He countenanced an attempt to wrest power from King Hussein, whose grandfather, a religious and tribal leader from Saudi Arabia, had been placed in charge of the country when Britain recognized its independence in 1923.

Palestinian guerrillas began interfering with highway traffic, controlling Palestinian refugee camps, clashing with the Jordanian Army and systematically defying the government. In September 1970 — later known to Palestinians as Black September — King Hussein sent troops and armor into Amman, his capital, to suppress the P.L.O. After days of shelling refugee camps where some 60,000 Palestinians lived, the army drove the would-be usurpers out of Jordan.

Conservative estimates put Palestinian losses at 2,000. Mr. Arafat, who made his way unharmed to Cairo, later claimed that Jordan’s Army had killed 25,000.

Two of the planes were flown to the desert outside of Amman, Jordan, and held there just as the Jordanian civil war erupted. Raab, a health-care executive, was a 17-year-old hostage on one of those planes, and he recounts the ordeal, which resulted in his being separated from his family and dragged back and forth across Jordan for weeks in fear for his life. Raab also attempts to narrate the larger story, from the tense, fractious multinational negotiations over the hostages to the conflict between the Jordanian army and the Palestinian guerrillas. It is an ambitious undertaking, one that Raab lacks the craft to achieve.

While the book is painstakingly researched, the writing rarely comes alive, even in the most dramatic situations. The various sources—including Raab’s account that he wrote soon after his release—seem to be stuck together rather than shaped. Still, much of the material is intrinsically fascinating and a sad reminder of how much and how little has changed.
