Obama’s inhuman “humanitarian” doctrine

March 30, 2011

Obama’s inhuman “humanitarian” doctrine

Obama is active in Libya, spending Billions of dollars, he said it’s a “humanitarian” mission to “protect civilians.”
Is Obama really “concerned” about civilian casualties???

  • When protesters against the oppressive totalitarian Islamic-apartheid regime of Iran were slaughtered in the streets. Obama said: “We don’t intervene.” At a time when the Islamic Republic pushes bloodshed (directly or via its Hezbollah arm) in: Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc.
  • In the Ivory Coast people are dying. “Moral” Obama couldn’t find oil there, apparently.
  • In the Sudan genocide, 2,500,000 already died in previous years by Khartoum. Lately, despite the cessation of the South, Omar al-Bashir continues crimes against Southerners. But Obama doesn’t act when the Arab is the aggressor, unless he has the Arab league behind him. The Arab league always supported the Arab supremacist, apartheid against non-Arabs and African-slavery regime of al-Bashir.
  • When Palestinian-Arab Hamas regime fires from densely populated areas, Jihadists slash babies’ throats and blow up buses with the intent to commit mass massacres among civilians, incited by the “moderate” PA regime’s hate propaganda (who dehumanizes Jews, glorifies jihadism, advocates anti-Christian, anti-Jewish apartheid and ethnic cleansing of all Jews in the area) to the cheers of the Arab main street. Obama is busy blaming the victim, condemning Israel’s so-called “settlements.” As if rebuilding part of a historic land is the issue and not targeting Jews by bloodthirsty Arab-Islamic elements and the incitement, venomous atmosphere in general Arab-Palestine.
  • When ‘who-knows-how-many’ are murdered in the streets of the ‘prison State’ Syria [the anti-Kurdish racist-Arab regime] and its involvement in arming bloody Hezbollah butchers is evident. Obama practices “talk is cheap.”

Conclusion, Obama’s “doctrine” is anti-humanitarian pro-Islamism.

Islamofascism, the Internet, and the liberty contagion

February 23, 2011

Islamofascism, the Internet, and the liberty contagion | Richmond Times-Dispatch

By ROSS MACKENZIE
Published: February 20, 2011

On Egypt et al. let us be very clear.

Joy at the expansion of liberty — maybe even of democracy — is the only defensible sentiment. Any policy based on regime stability alone (as American foreign policy has been based too long) and thereby sanctioning tyranny, autocracy, one-party rule — is based on a premise not only indefensible but false.

The American left went bonkers over George W. Bush’s “Freedom Agenda,” which morphed into a “Freedom Doctrine.” Much of the left never accepted Bush as a legitimate president following the Supreme Court’s ruling about the Florida count in the 2000 election — and so the left could not accept anything he did. Yet it was he who insisted on encouraging democracy to germinate and grow in Iraq, in the hope it might spread throughout the Middle East.

So here we are, with freedom demonstrations from the southern Mediterranean littoral to beyond the Persian Gulf in, even, Iran. Is this apparent contagion a consequence — in a paradigmatic Internet hour — of infectious liberty, and correspondingly eloquent testimony to the fragility of autocratic regimes both Arab and Persian? At almost light-speed, the Internet may have disassembled fascist mullah rule across the Muslim world. Can you not hear — in the streets from Algiers to Tehran — liberty’s alluring song?

Maybe. And maybe not.

Islamofascism is our century’s Soviet communism. It seeks worldwide rule (a global caliphate) achieved and sustained through terror. In Iran, during the Carter administration, the shah fell. Freedom was thick in the air. Then Khomeini took over. Today freedom lies crushed, al-Qaida and the Taliban have sprouted, and Iran has satellized first Gaza (through Hamas) and now Lebanon (through Hezbollah). Syria remains in Iran’s orbit, and Turkey nudges seemingly ever closer.

Now in Egypt, during an Obama administration boasting a foreign policy no less befuddled, ideological, and incompetent than Carter’s, Mubarak is out. Were the Tahrir Square demonstrations genuinely spontaneous? Did his fall just happen, the demonstrators emboldened and enabled by the Internet? Or were those at Tahrir mere marionettes manipulated by an Islamofascist Muslim Brotherhood?

The ‘Hood traces back to a late 1920s founding and to early training by Nazi goons. Many of its alumni are — or were — al-Qaida stars. It helped establish Hamas, which it and Iran still sustain. The ‘Hood’s Supreme Guide, one Mohamed Badi, insists his group will “continue to raise the banner of jihad” against Jews — in his words the ‘Hood’s “first and foremost enemies.” He hates America, signifies for targeting U.S. troops, deplores “Zio-American arrogance and tyranny,” and seeks for Egypt creation of an Islamist state.

Such lovelies could have arranged the demonstrations in Cairo and across the Muslim world. Or they may have been as surprised by those demonstrations as the Obamians were. In either case, as Egypt’s most efficient, disciplined, and stabilizing (there’s that word again) force besides the military, the Muslim Brotherhood may be perfectly positioned to satellize Egypt — thereby advancing the Islamist territorial imperative, not to mention the Iranian dream.

Perhaps it’s true: The Internet may be a liberating tool unimagined just a generation ago. In its face, possibly not even the most ruthless of regimes can survive. Or perhaps in liberating a people subjugated in poverty (at $6,200 per year, per-capita Egyptian income ranks behind Bosnia, Jamaica and Cuba), the Internet liberates only to invite more terrifying subjugation by Islamist cut-throats — as with communist cadres — waiting to rush from the shadows into the corridors of power.

Liberty is of course the ultimate cause. Always. Before our eyes, we may be seeing it blossom — so greatly fertilized by the Internet — throughout the Muslim world. Then again, terrorizing Islamists may move in and capture these revolutions, converting them at the muzzles of guns, Maoist-like, into perversions of democracy that allow one man one vote — once.

That would be the worst sort of outcome. Still, it would enable a blame-mongering American left to unload once again on George Bush, its perceived illegitimate president who planted freedom in the Muslim world, for the perverted, illegitimate democracy his “Freedom Agenda” ultimately wrought.

(Roosevelt-ism /) Reagan-ism VS (Carter-ism/) Obama-ism

February 6, 2011


As I see MSM admitting Reagan’s heroism and ‘American legacy,’ they link his legacy to his own hero: Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Now, let’s examine historical perspective, how is (Roosevelt-ism /) Reagan-ism VS (Carter-ism/) Obama-ism, in:

Pride VS shame

Pro-American, Pro-freedom, pro-Israel, anti-Islamism.

Or, What would Reagan do/say today?

FDRReaganCarterObama

…and a good deal of dismay the decisions of the British Government regarding its Palestine policy.” He continued: “Frankly, I do not believe that the British are wholly correct in saying that the framers of the Palestine Mandate ‘could not have intended that Palestine should be converted into a Jewish state against the will of the Arab population of the country.’ […] I believe that the Arabs could be brought to accept this because it seems clear that 75000 additional immigrants can be successfully settled on the land and because also the Arab immigration into Palestine since 1921 has vastly exceeded the total Jewish immigration during this whole period.

The Arabs Declare War upon the Axis
In February 1945, King Ibn Saud met with Franklin Roosevelt aboard the cruiser Quincy, anchored at the Bitter Lake of Suez. The American president, returning from his meeting with Stalin at Yalta, was exhausted, but he later informed Congress:
“I learned more about the whole problem, the Moslem problem, the Jewish problem, by talking with Ibn Saud for five minutes than I could have learned in the exchange of two or three dozen letters.”

December 7, 1950 – Jihad Watch

Dec 7, 2010

Nine years after Pearl Harbor, World War II had been over for five years. The nation was strong and confident in the face of the Cold War threat from the Soviets, and was in the process of magnanimously helping Germany and Japan rebuild.

Nine years after 9/11, and we are barely even at square one. Consider, by way of comparison, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s speech to Congress the day after the Pearl Harbor attacks and the U.S. in the age of Barack Hussein Obama. The similarities — and the differences — are striking.

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Speech to the U.S. Congress on December 8th, 1941 (as delivered)

Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, of the House of Representatives:

Yesterday, December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

And on September 11, 2001 — a date which will likewise live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the global Islamic jihad.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. […]

The United States was at peace with the warriors of Islam, and considers itself to be at peace with them still, and has undertaken numerous efforts to mollify Muslims and convince them that it has no quarrel with Islam or with Muslims at all.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace. […]

It will be recorded that the doctrines of jihad in Islam and the statements of jihad terrorists worldwide make it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned as a jihad attack. During the ensuing nine years, Islamic spokesmen have deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The People of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

Islamic jihad forces are currently operating in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Nigeria, Chechnya, and elsewhere. The jihadists have, therefore, undertaken an offensive extending throughout the world. The facts of 9/11 and today speak for themselves. Yet the People of the United States largely remain unequipped to form their opinions and understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation, for neither government nor media is telling them the truth about the nature of the threat.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. […]

Today the Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy involves people who hold exactly the same belief-system as that held by those who attacked us on 9/11 in vital measures taken for our defense.

And not even nine years after 9/11 does our nation as a whole fully understand the character of the onslaught against us.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounding determination of our People – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941 a state of War has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounding determination of our People – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.

But Congress has declared no state of War, and nine years after the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Islamic jihadists on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, no one is even sure who or what we are fighting.

Except, that is, our jihadist enemies themselves. They know full well who they are and what they are about. And the fog of deception is one of their foremost and most effective weapons in this country.

President Reagan and Israel Shimon Peres Israel was one of those issues about which he had a very clear opinion; he was unshakable — he was a staunch supporter. From that point of view, he belonged to the good people of this world.

Reagan: A Staunch Friend of Israel

Jon E. Dougherty, NewsMax.com
Wednesday, June 9, 2004

While most American leaders over the past several decades have been supporters of Israel, the lone democracy in the Middle East, few were better friends of the Jewish state than Ronald Reagan.

The late president opened communications, security and economic links to Israel – many of which still exist today – that resulted in the close, symbiotic relationship between Washington and Jerusalem, according to U.S. and Israel political analysts and experts.

Also, Reagan shared a spiritual bond with Israel that has been compared with President Bush’s understanding of the strategic, historic and biblical role of Israel, say experts.

“It seems that presidents like Reagan and Bush who have a foundation in the Bible have a better understanding of what Israel’s role is in the world,” said Helen Freedman, the executive director of American For a Safe Israel [AFSI], based in New York City.

“Israel is not meant to be a nation like all the other nations,” she told NewsMax. “It’s not meant to be absorbed into the Middle East or the Commonwealth of Nations. It is a nation that represents the biblical promise – the Promised Land, the chosen people, and its obligation to be a light unto the nations.”

Reagan, Freedman said, was a president “we had heard woke up every morning and asked to do God’s will – not his will, but God’s will. We believe President Bush is somewhat on that track also.”



Israel Legacy



In many respects, experts said Reagan was the best U.S. friend Israel has had since its founding in 1948.

Among his many accomplishments was his successful efforts to get the Soviet Union to allow persecuted Russian Jews to emigrate to the Jewish state. Reagan’s policies eventually led to a tidal wave of immigrants for Israel.



“There are a number of things President Reagan did that are monumental in their importance to U.S.-Israel relationship,” said Josh Block, a spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee [AIPAC] in Washington, D.C.

Among them:

  • Reagan was instrumental in the enhancement of the U.S.-Israel Strategic Cooperation Agreement, which resulted in the establishment of the Joint Political-Military Group [JPMG], a Pentagon program which oversees joint intelligence and military ventures between both nations.

  • The nation’s 40th president oversaw the creation of the Joint Security Assistance Planning Group [JSAP] in April 1988, a mechanism by which both countries review Israel’s security needs in light of current threat assessments and U.S. budgetary demands. This forum is enormously important for deciding a wide array of bilateral strategic interests, said AIPAC.

  • A strategic relationship that has led to advances for both countries in their battles against terrorism.

  • The signing of an American-Israel free trade agreement, which allowed Israeli companies to compete equally with European companies. Since 1985, trade between the two countries has increased 400 percent and topped $20 billion last year (Israel is the United States’ 21st largest trading partner). This agreement served as a model for other, similar agreements, including the North America Free Trade Agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    When he signed the agreement, Reagan said, “I believe this new economic relationship with our friends in Israel will further our historic friendship, strengthen both our economies, and provide for new opportunities between our peoples for communication and commerce.”

    Block said in 1985 and 1986, when the Israeli economy was experiencing inflation rates as high as 445 percent, Reagan approved $1.5 billion in Israeli assistance, which was paid in two installments — one each year.

    “It was an extraordinarily important effort to help Israel make it through their economic crisis,” he said.



    Bolstering Aid Packages



    Prior to the Reagan presidency, the U.S. provided financial backing and assistance to Israel via a collection of loans and grants.

    But after he took office, the loans and grants evolved into the “very important economic and military aid” the U.S. currently and regularly provides Jerusalem, America’s only democratic ally in the Middle East.

    “Israel has received more direct aid from the United States since World War II than any other country,” but the amounts during the first half of that time period “were relatively small,” writes Mitchell Bard, for the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.

    “Starting with fiscal year 1987, Israel annually received $1.2 billion in all grant economic aid and $1.8 billion in all grant military assistance,” Bard wrote. But, he added, “In 1998, Israel offered to voluntarily reduce its dependence on U.S. economic aid. According to an agreement reached with the Clinton Administration and Congress, the $1.2 billion economic aid package will be reduced by $120 million each year so that it will be phased out in ten years.”

    Still, half those savings ($60 million) will be added to Israel’s military aid package.



    Commonsense Friend



    Reagan seemed to be at ease in his dealings with Israel, partly because experts believe he knew and understood the importance of a strong Jewish state in the region.

    “He had some real good commonsense approaches” to U.S. relations with Israel, said Freedman, of AFSI. “He understood Jerusalem could not be divided, and that there cannot be a Palestinian state” because the latter “would spell the end of Israel,” she said.

    Block said Reagan signed a strategic letter of understanding in 1982 with the Israeli administration of Prime Minister Menachem Begin, which is still used by both governments today.

    Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz, a leading New York rabbi, told NewsMax that Reagan “was a friend of Israel from the time the country was founded, and he was very consistent.”

    Pomerantz said while Bush understands that Israel “lives under the kind of terrorism that struck the U.S. on September 11, 2001,” he also agreed that Reagan saw early the terror threat to both countries as well, especially after Iranian-backed terrorists bombed a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983, killing 241 Marines.

    “Reagan recognized Israel as an actual ally during the Cold War,” he said, “which he was most responsible for winning.”

    Reagan may have used Israel to help him defeat the Evil Empire. But he had a deep affinity for the only other nation to claim a Providential founding.

    “In Israel, free men and women are every day demonstrating the power of courage and faith,” Reagan once remarked. “Back in 1948 when Israel was founded, pundits claimed the new country could never survive. Today, no one questions that. Israel is a land of stability and democracy in a region of tyranny and unrest.”

    CARTER

    While Jimmy Carter, called the worst president in 20th century, simply lost it, lost the America’s trust in him, from the New York Times of Jan. 21, 981: Reagan Takes Oath as 40th President; Promises an ’Era of National Renewal’–Minutes Later, 52 U.S. Hostages In Iran Fly to Freedom After 444-Day Ordeal
    .

    Infamous Carter, as in causing [indirectly] the fascist ‘Islamic revolution’ that endangers the world today with Hezbollah Mahdi thugs (not only reacking havoc in Lebanon and Israel but) in major (Islamic) hot spots, including in: Somalia, Iraq (more ), Afghanistan, and playing a a dangerous game in Latin America. Arming itself with nuclear arms capabale of reaching Europe and calling genocide on the Jews in Israel.
    the Ex-President For Sale, who -with Arab oil lobby’s money- published his venemous anti-Israel hate book, this, despite his own admission on CNN: “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.”

    OBAMA?

    So far, Obama has cowed to Islamic leaders, bowed to Arab Muslim tyrants, “apologized” for America’s mistakes, toured the world, often as an embarrased American… worst, (unlike the crystal clarity that of Reagan’s) he can’t even seem to define the Islamic militant threat upon the world.

    Conclusion

    To Prez. Obama, your actions will determine if you will become a ‘Reagan’ or a ‘Carter’ in America’s hearts, empty spinning “words” alone simply won’t do it.


  • JIHAD IN NUMBERS

    October 29, 2010

    ISLAMIC JIHAD IN NUMBERS

    Tears of Jihad
    These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad.

    Africa

    Thomas Sowell [Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, BasicBooks, 1994, p. 188] estimates that 11 million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and 14 million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East. For every slave captured many others died. Estimates of this collateral damage vary. The renowned missionary David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached a plantation, five others were killed in the initial raid or died of illness and privation on the forced march.[Woman’s Presbyterian Board of Missions, David Livingstone, p. 62, 1888] Those who were left behind were the very young, the weak, the sick and the old. These soon died since the main providers had been killed or enslaved. So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.

    120 million Africans

    Christians

    The number of Christians martyred by Islam is 9 million [David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200, William Carey Library, 2001, p. 230, table 4-10] . A rough estimate by Raphael Moore in History of Asia Minor is that another 50 million died in wars by jihad. So counting the million African Christians killed in the 20th century we have:

    60 million Christians

    Hindus

    Koenard Elst in Negationism in India gives an estimate of 80 million Hindus killed in the total jihad against India. [Koenard Elst, Negationism in India, Voice of India, New Delhi, 2002, pg. 34.] The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad. The mountains near India are called the Hindu Kush, meaning the “funeral pyre of the Hindus.”

    80 million Hindus

    Buddhists

    Buddhists do not keep up with the history of war. Keep in mind that in jihad only Christians and Jews were allowed to survive as dhimmis (servants to Islam); everyone else had to convert or die. Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India. The total is roughly 10 million. [David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200, William Carey Library, 2001, p. 230, table 4-1.]

    10 million Buddhists

    Jews

    Oddly enough there were not enough Jews killed in jihad to significantly affect the totals of the Great Annihilation. The jihad in Arabia was 100 percent effective, but the numbers were in the thousands, not millions. After that, the Jews submitted and became the dhimmis (servants and second class citizens) of Islam and did not have geographic political power.

    This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad.

    Listen to these stats: Since the attack on Sept. 11, 2001, more than 40,000 people have been killed by Muslim extremists worldwide, the result of more than 17,000 attacks. And we’re not even counting the American troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Forty thousand human beings dead because of Muslim terror activity.

    In addition, since 9/11, the USA has spent more than $1 trillion combating Muslim terror threats, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. $1 trillion in less than 10 years. And you’re telling me there isn’t a Muslim problem in the world?

    Many Americans also remember celebrations after the 9/11 attacks. To be fair, they were brief and mostly Palestinian-driven, but the images are indelible.

    So there is no question that most Americans are a bit uneasy about the turbulence in the Muslim world. That may not be fair, but it’s reality.

    Mansur: Ignoring Muslim-on-Muslim Violence Undercuts U.S. …
    Jun 15, 2010 …Muslim-on-Muslim Genocide

    Few Americans realize that the most victims of Islamism have been Muslims, Mansur argues. As an example, the Algerian civil war that began in 1992, killed more than 150,000 people in a fight pitting the nation’s military regime against Islamist radicals. In Darfur, estimates range from 200,000 to 500,000 dead and millions more driven from their homes.

    In East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), an estimated 500,000 to 1 million people were slaughtered in 1971 by the rampaging Pakistani Army. Mansur refers to it as “one of the great genocides that Muslims committed against Muslims.”

    In this case, “the Pakistani military was killing their own citizens, and none of these people, by the way, have been brought to [judgment.]” The perpetrators of these crimes are “still running around in the West,” Mansur said. “So you see the barbarity…the savagery, with which a Muslim state treats its own population.”

    In Mansur’s view, The East Pakistan genocide bears disturbing similarities to today’s events in Darfur. “Half a million or more people have been killed in western Sudan, and there is not a peep about that,” Mansur said. “There’s a preoccupation, whenever the issue of violence or ethnic cleansing and war crimes…are talked about – the West is focused on the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

    But groups like CAIR show little interest in discussing the mass murder of Muslims in Darfur, Pakistan or anywhere else. According to Mansur, when the topic is raised, Islamists typically assert that the figures have been “inflated” by “enemies of the Muslims” such as Hindus or Zionists.

    “In all of these cases, there is not a whit of taking responsibility, ” Mansur said. Instead of using the Arab-Israeli conflict as a way to put pressure on Israel, the international community should take action to bring to justice “these criminals who were responsible for the genocide, whether it is in Darfur or Pakistan.”

    “There is no statute of limitation…for crimes against humanity,” he noted.

    Mansur said he sees some signs of positive change in Islamabad’s response to the recent wave of terrorist attacks by the Taliban. The reality of suicide bombings in Pakistan’s major cities is making it increasingly difficult for government officials and intellectuals to argue that terrorism results from India’s machinations or “blowback” from the Arab-Israeli conflict.

    Pakistani elites are coming to the realization that their jihadist terror problem is homegrown. A growing number of voices are acknowledging “that we have to take responsibility, that [jihadism] is what we have nurtured and created,” Mansur said. “I see that as a hopeful sign. I think that if Pakistan is going to be saved from its own tendency to self-destruction, that these voices have to be reinforced and given support, which means the building of a civil society and the downgrading of the military side.”

    Jihad by the Numbers

    In his masterful second volume study of Hitler, Hitler, 1936-1945: Nemesis, Ian Kershaw discusses a phenomenon called “working towards the Führer,” in which every Nazi Party organization, member and office automatically, with little or no prompting or prodding by Hitler or his inner circle, worked to realize the ends and policies articulated by Hitler before and after he rose to power in 1933. It was automatic, because to disagree with or have reservations about a single, even minor aspect of Nazi ideology was to court reprimand, censure, dismissal, or even death. Agreement with those ends and policies was nearly a secondary motivation behind any Party member’s actions. He was compelled to act, regardless of the consequences. The ideology commanded it, and the Führer’s will and vision were irresistible, because there was little or no self to resist them.

    As Party members who disagreed or expressed reservations were dismissed, or abandoned the Party, fled, committed suicide, or were murdered, monsters of the first rank filled the vacuum to formulate and enact policies that more completely “worked towards the Führer,” monsters such as Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Göring, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and Joseph Goebbels. When all the checks within the Party against total irrationality in domestic and foreign policies were removed or fell into disrepute, total irrationality took over totally.

    But the average Party member strived to satisfy Hitler, regardless of how minor or major the action and regardless if it stood to be acknowledged or rewarded. To be a true, loyal, above-suspicion Nazi meant the near total surrender of one’s ego, mind and self, and to substitute them with Hitler’s own.

    Of course, an Ellsworth Toohey might say that the joke was on the rank-and-file Nazi: he would claim that Hitler was essentially selfless, and that what little mind Hitler possessed was founded on what he thought his followers and “the people” wanted and expected of him as prophet and dictator. Ayn Rand, in The Fountainhead, describes that phenomenon through Toohey:

    “…A world of obedience and of unity. A world where the thought of each man will not be his own, but an attempt to guess the thought in the brain of his neighbor, who’ll have no thought of his own but an attempt to guess the thought of the next neighbor who’ll have no thought – and so on…around the globe. Since all must serve all. A world in which man will not work for so innocent an incentive as money, but for that headless monster – prestige. The approval of his fellows – their good opinion – the opinion of men who’ll be allowed to hold no opinion. An octopus, all tentacles and no brain….An average drawn upon zeroes….” (1).

    It is no accident or fluke of history that Islamists – Hamas, Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad, Saudi Wahhabists, the whole ménage of Islamists and Jihadists — admire both Hitler and Nazism. Their hatred of Jews and Israel is merely one facet of that pathology. As Nazism required the complete submission of the individual to Party ideology and an unthinking, unwavering deference to Hitler, Islam requires the complete submission of the individual to Islam and an unthinking, unwavering deference to Allah and Mohammed. Islamists have long recognized that both the method and the ends of Nazism were in complete agreement and practical accord with their own. The “mechanics” of a functioning Islam differ in no fundamental way from the “mechanics” of a functioning Nazism or any other brand of total collectivism, as described by Toohey above. (2)

    (One historical note: Kershaw points out that Hitler once entertained the idea of solving the “Jewish Question” by helping to establish a Jewish state in Palestine, where all German and other European Jews would be forcibly “relocated” and presumably – hopefully – perish in a wasteland of desert and hostile Arabs. He dismissed the idea because he feared that such a state could possibly become a political adversary dedicated to destroying Germany. Historically, the ironic joke is on Hitler. He destroyed Germany and the Jews turned the wasteland into a productive, prosperous garden.)

    With that in mind, here is a set of significant statistics forwarded to me by a friend. It charts the progression of Islamic Jihad, both soft and hard methods, whose purpose is to establish a global caliphate, especially in the West.

    It begins by stating:

    “Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.”

    I would disagree. It is definitely a religion and a political system combined. Any attempt to “separate” mosque and state would emasculate Islam. I have argued this point in past commentaries and will not dwell on it here. And cults, if not opposed by reason and kept by it on the far fringes of a civilized society, have a tendency to become religions that may become state policies. Ecology was once a “cult.” Today we have the Environmental Protection Agency.

    It goes on to state:

    “Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.”

    Or a mask, or a ruse. But no one should doubt how seriously Islamists and Muslims in general take the religious component. Islam is a barbaric but fully integrated system, perhaps more lethally integrated than was Nazism.

    “Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.'”

    I would defend anyone’s right to believe in Islam. The question is: How could one truly practice Islam without declaring Jihad on others? After a Muslim has won the “internal struggle” or Jihad within himself, the next step is to wage it against all others. To refrain from that part of Jihad is to risk the accusation of being a slacker or pseudo-Muslim. From the first stage to the last, all such effort constitutes “working towards the Prophet and Allah.”

    “When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agreed to ‘the reasonable’ Muslims demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source: CIA: The World Fact Book, 2007).

    “As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country it will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone….”

    Here is where it becomes interesting. Note throughout the exponential scale of Islamic influence as the percentage of Muslim population per country increases. Comments in square brackets are my corrective interjections.

    United States: 1.0
    Australia: 1.5
    Canada: 1.9
    China: 1.0-2.0
    Italy: 1.5
    Norway: 1.8

    “At 2% and 3% they [Muslims] begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.”

    Denmark: 2.0
    Germany: 3.7
    United Kingdom: 2.7
    Spain: 4.0
    Italy: 4.6

    “From 5% on they [Muslims] exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (“clean” by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply (United States).”

    France: 8.0
    Philippines: 5.0
    Sweden: 5.0
    Switzerland: 4.3
    The Netherlands: 5.5
    Trinidad & Tobago: 5.8

    “At this point, they [Muslims] will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, or Islamic law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    “When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris – car burning). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam, Denmark – Mohammed cartoons, murder of Theo van Gogh).”

    Guyana: 10.0
    India: 13.4
    Israel: 16.0
    Kenya: 10.0
    Russia: 10.0-15.0

    The one anomaly in this set of statistics is Israel, which has not experienced uprisings and threats of violence. Its Arab or Muslim population enjoys equal political rights with Jewish Israelis. The suicide bombings and rocket attacks that have killed hundreds have been perpetrated by outsiders.

    “After reaching 20% [of a population] expect hair-trigger rioting, Jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

    Ethiopia: 32.8

    “After 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:”

    Bosnia: 40.0
    Chad: 53.1
    Lebanon: 59.7

    “From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and jizya, the tax placed on [conquered] infidels:”

    Albania: 70.0
    Malaysia: 60.4
    Qatar: 77.5
    Sudan: 70.0

    “After 80%, expect state-run ethnic cleansing and genocide:”

    Bangladesh: 83.0
    Egypt: 90.0
    Gaza: 98.7
    Indonesia: 86.1
    Iran: 98.0
    Iraq: 97.0
    Jordan: 92.0
    Morocco: 98.7
    Pakistan: 97.0
    Palestine: 99.0
    Syria: 90.0
    Tajikistan: 90.0
    Turkey: 99.8
    United Arab Emirates: 96.0

    I question the inclusion of “Palestine” in this set. “Palestine” simply means space occupied by stateless “Palestinians” in Gaza and the West Bank, and is the name of the state which Islamists wish to replace Israel, once it is destroyed. Turkey, after decades of having a secular, non-religious government, is beginning to turn “religious,” and seems to be yearning for the kind of Muslim government that cleansed the country in 1915 of non-Muslim Armenians in a genocide that predates the Holocaust.

    “100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ – the Islamic House of Peace’ [more correctly, dar-al-Islam, or Land of Islam]. There is supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim.”

    Afghanistan: 100.0
    Saudi Arabia: 100.0
    Somalia: 100.0
    Yemen: 99.9

    “Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

    “‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel.’ Leon Uris, The Haj.

    “It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average[s] would indicate.

    “Dr. Peter Hammond’s new book…is a fascinating, well illustrated and thoroughly documented response to the relentless anti-Christian propaganda that has been generated by Muslim and Marxist groups and by Hollywood film makers….”

    For a detailed exposé of Islam’s Marxist affiliation – as distinguished from its symbiosis with Nazism – see Daniel Pipes’ “[The Islamist-Leftist] Allied Menace,” of July 15th.

    So, regardless of the book’s Christian orientation, the statistics Hammond uses to cite the various Muslim populations in each country can be taken as reliable, as well as the prefatory remarks before each set of percentages. There is certainly a demonstrable and observable corollary between a country’s Muslim population and the influence it begins to have or has had on its government, politics and culture.

    The Islamists are coolly “working towards the Prophet and Allah” as shown in the numbers above. Meanwhile, our policymakers appear to be a succession of compliant, pragmatic, non-judgmental zeroes blindly working towards the conquest and extinction of the West.

    Hezbollah’s criminal activities streches from “blood diamonds” in Africa to Latin Amerca’s drug trafficking.

    I’d say that attacking: US, France, Kuwait, Britain, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Lebanon, Egypt; its global criminal financial activities; its oppression and constant crimes against humanity on its own -millions of Iranian- citizens, and even moreso on its minorities; threatening ‘Death to US’ – the “big Satan;” planning a nuclear attack for genocide on 6,000,000 Jews in Israel (with an introduction of denying the Holocaust); threatening its immediate neighbours, Europe; Ahmadinejad’s dreaming of becoming the “Mahdi” to dominate the world under a theocratic Islamic totalitarian system run by the mullahs, constitute a serious threat, Don’t you?

    10 Highlighted problems with mainstream Islam

    September 20, 2010

    10 Highlighted problems with mainstream Islam

    [clarity and concerns are not “bigotry”]

    1) DEHUMANIZATION

    Apes and pigs, the dehumanization of non-Muslims, Christians as pigs and Jews as apes.[1][2][3][4][5] (Or as some Islamic cleric of the ‘Bali bombing’ called non-Muslims: “worms, snakes and maggots.”[6][7]

    2) TERRORISM

    Had the mainstream Islam really eject its radicals, the Jihadists wouldn’t have the motivation to go on, Why else is there Islamic terrorism still active in so many parts of the world? The half-way condemnation, and almost always accompanied by a “but”, but the west does this or that argument is still on – after 9 Years from the 9/11 Islamic massacre in 2001.[8][9]

    3) SHARIA: OPPRESSION AND ANNIHILATING THE INFIDEL

    The campaign, hidden or open for implementation for Sharia law. In Sharia, besides the legal basis for the war against the infidel,[10] women are subjucated, which explaines how top Islamic cleric of Australia called non-Muslim women plain “meat.”[11]

    4) HONOR KILLING

    One of the great imports from the Islamic culture.[12][13]5) JIHAD & INTIMIDATIONS BY “MODERATES”The so called moderate Muslim leaders that the best they can do is intimidate the west to give in to their Islamic expansion, or else… the radicals will be unleashed.[14][15] The hidden Jihad.

    6) SELF-MADE VICTIMHODD

    The wide sympathy and support in mainstream Islam to the Palestinian,[16][17][18][19][20] Hezbollah,[21] Taliban,[22] Al Qeada in Iraq tactics of using civilians (indirect murder of their own people) so that the west looks bad. (All of the above causalties are seen by mainstream Islam as nothing else but the ‘victims of the west’).

    7) ISLAMIC APARTHEID / BIGOTRY

    With all the ‘criticism” of the west, the Islamic world is still practicing Apartheid (in the real sense), religious and gender wise.[23][24][25][26] In the intolerant Muslim world all non-Muslims are either at an inferior status or worse. The Christian minority has dwindeled in Lebanon[27] and among the Jordanian / Palestinian Arabs[28][29][30][31][32] while Muslim population have increased, persection. Islamic bigotry’s also at the roots of conflicts, including in the Sudan[33][34] and in Israel/Palestine[35] (in the intolerant Arab – Islamic world[36][37] against the “other”[38]).

    8)}WORLD DOMINATION – GOAL

    The open or silent goal by Jihadists, yet backed by so many in mainstream Islam, towards a Caliphate – a theocratic Islamic dictatorship based on the Sharia (religious Islamic law).[39][40][41][42][43][44]

    9) A TOTALITARIAN WORLD

    The Arab-Islamic world is totalitarian[45][46][47][48] – oppressive, even Lebanon that is supposedly the real democracy in that world, the terror Islamic group Hezbollah has immense power. (Iraq is yet to bee seen). Minorities are in even worse shape.

    10) MOST CONFLICTS ALL OVER THE GLOBE ARE BY MUSLIMS

    Draw a map and point to the conflicts,[49] then try to detach most of it from Muslims. Here’s a partial list: Russia. Somalia. Sudan. Nigeria. Lebanon. Israel. Iraq. Afghanistan. Pakistan. India. Kashmir. Thailand. Philippines. China.

    Iran’s, Syria-backed Global Arab-Islamic Terrorists: The Hezbollah

    May 24, 2010

    Contents

    Iranian, Syrian Backed: Arab Islamic Hezbollah Global Terrorists

    Huzbollah is a radical Shi’a Muslim organization fighting against Israel and “western imperialism” in Lebanon, and has advocated since its beginning (1982) for an Islamic State, Tehran style[1]. The group does not recognize the legitimacy of the State of Israel. Hezbollah refers to itself with multiple titles including the “Organization of the Oppressed on Earth” and the “Revolutionary Justice Organization.” Its main goal is the establishment of an Islamic government across the Arab world that will “liberate” Jerusalem and the entire area of the present-day State of Israel.

    It is financed and armed by Iran and enjoys full backing from Syria. Hezbollah was founded with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

    Syria backs Hizballah morally and has also supplied it with money and arms. In return, Hizballah protects Syria’s political and military interests in Lebanon. [2][3]

    The two major leaders of Hezbollah are Secretary General Sheikh Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the organization’s spiritual chief, Sheikh Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah, both named “specially designated global terrorists” by the U.S. government. [4]

    It was founded and continued, and still is marked by violence, locally and worldwide, though, recently, it tries to portray itself as a mere “political” party. It has been said that: “The very year Hezbollah was founded it became the most lethal terrorist organization in Lebanon” & “neither had ever managed to spill so much blood in a single incident.” [5]

    Funding

    Dirty Money, Blood Money

    Criminal funding

    The Lebanese Shiite Terrorist Organization has been highlighted as a profile in “Crime and Terrorism” – Hezbollah’s Criminal activity is widely in Lebanon and worldwide [6], or what researches call: “various criminal enterprises to raise funds for Hezbollah.” [7] Among the illegal, criminal methods of the Islamic group is wide fraud, drug trafficking, credit card fraud & cigarette smuggling, it has been known that “Cigarette Smuggling Funds Terrorism.” [8] [9] In a 2009 report on “Hezbollah: narco-Islamism Middle East Strategy at Harvard” researchers have found that: ‘more than any other Islamist group, Hezbollah has a long record of engaging in criminal activity to support its activities.’ [10] [11]

    Latin America

    The ‘Hezbollah’s global finance network’ includes “The Triple Frontier” (in South America) – “Argentina, Brasil & Paraguay.” [12], [13]

    There’s an extensive report on “Hezbollah and the Drug Trade in South America” – Hezbollah is active in the drug trade in Colombia, a web of criminality that extends from Lebanon to Africa to South America. [14]

    Douglas Farah wrote in 2006 on “Hezbollah’s External Support Network in West Africa and Latin America” that Hezbollah, has the largest financial structure in Latin America and it is similar to that in of the organization’s Africa structure, that is to say, structured along family/clan lines. These clans have family members across the continent’s main free trade zones of Panama, (Venezuela’s) Isla Margarita and the TBA (tri-border area), allowing for multiple opportunities to launder funds by over invoicing stocks, under invoicing merchandise and thtough the use of little-monitored electronic money transfer systems and bulk money smuggling. The first study of this overlapping clan structure spread across broad geographic areas was not undertaken until 2004.

    The TBA has for years drawn attention as a center for contraband smuggling, drug trafficking and large-scale money laundering, in part because all of the countries whose borders are involved profit from the illicit trade. It is also an easy place to hide and move money. Estimates of the amount of drug money alone laundered through the two main urban centers in the TBA, Foz do Iguacu and Ciudad del Este, range as high as $12 billion a year. [15]

    From a 2003 research on Hezbollah “Hezbollah: A Case Study of Global Reach”: Hezbollah is also active in Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, Panama and Ecuador. [16]

    Counter terrorism expert Steven Emerson wrote in 2007 in an article titled “Blood Money: Hezbollah’s revenue stream flows through the Americas”:

    A New Front. Hezbollah operatives have frequently sought out sympathetic members of the Lebanese Diaspora to assist them, several of whom have owned and operated Lebanese restaurants. Salim Boughader Mucharrafille, owner of Cafe La Libanesa in Tijuana, Mexico, was arrested in December 2002 for running a ring that allegedly smuggled at least 200 Lebanese compatriots into the United States , including an employee of Al- Manar, Hezbollah’s television station. Although it was never confirmed, Boughader was suspected of having helped Kourani to slip over the border. Last May, a Mexican judge sentenced Boughader to 14 years in prison for organized crime and human smuggling.
    The case of Rady Zaiter, a.k.a. David Assi Alvarez, is an example of drug-running activities designed to benefit Hezbollah, using a restaurant as a front. In June 2005, Ecuadorian police broke up an international drug-trafficking ring led by the owners of El Turco restaurant: Zaiter and his partner, Maher Hamajo. The restaurant in Quito served as the logistical center for the ring’s activities. Drug mules carried cocaine in double bottomed suitcases bound for other countries in South America, as well as Europe and the Middle East. According to investigating authorities, Hezbollah received at least 70 percent of the drug money. Additionally, officials confiscated more than $150,000 and 2,000 euros. Further arrests were made in Brazil, Syria and the Dutch Antilles, bringing the total apprehended to 19 people. El Turco, like the Detroit-area restaurant La Shish that was recently allegedly linked to Hezbollah, was a very popular restaurant, appreciated by the locals. [4]

    In 2008, Colombia smashed a drug ring tied to Hezbollah, Colombian authorities said that they had broken up a drug and money-laundering ring in an international operation that included the capture of three suspects from the Middle East who used profits from the drug trade to fund Hezbollah.

    More than 100 suspects were arrested in Colombia and overseas on charges that they trafficked drugs and laundered cash for Colombia’s Norte del Valle cartel and outlawed paramilitaries, in a network that stretched from South America to Asia. “The criminal organization used routes through Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala, the Middle East and Europe, bringing in cash from the sale of these substances,” the statement said. [17][18]

    From ‘Inside Homeland Security’ 2009:

    Muslim businessmen operating companies in Panama “for many years” have laundered funds for Hezbollah, Hamas and the PLO.[19]

    U.S.

    The Washington Times had an editorial (2005) on ‘Hezbollah in America,’ a 41-year-old businessman, was arrested at his Dearborn home on charges of smuggling funds to Hezbollah.[20] In 2009, a grand jury in Philadelphia indicted four men in connection with a plot to support Hezbollah through schemes like buying machine guns.[21]

    Al-Mabarrat has a U.S.-based branch headquartered in Dearborn, Mich. Founded in 1991, the Al-Mabarrat Charitable Organization-USA, Inc., has repeatedly changed its name over the past 15 years. Although Al-Mabarrat acknowledges on its Web site that it works in conjunction with the Al-Mabarrat Association in Lebanon (whose logo it shares), it omits the fact that Al-Mabarrat Lebanon is run by Sheikh Fadlallah. Despite Al- Mabarrat USA’s direct link to a Fadlallah-controlled organization, the U.S. branch continues to operate unfettered.

    Hezbollah’s use of Al-Mabarrat as a fund-raising front is a savvy strategic move, mirroring a tactic long exploited by terrorist groups operating on U.S. soil. By utilizing charities, terrorists can generate popular support by providing some legitimate services, attract contributions from donors both unwitting and aware, and attempt to obscure financial trails. But such operations extend far beyond the United States. [4]

    Europe

    There’s a serious “Hezbollah’s Terrorist Threat to the European Union” writes The Heritage (2007) [22]. From a report on “Hezbollah Around the World” – Arabs, Muslims in Germany have been key fund raising center for Hezbollah. through crimes of: drug trafficking, weapons and people smuggling, document and currency fraud. [23] From a May 2010 report: ‘Hezbollah funded by drug trade in Europe,’ German police arrested Lebanese men who transferred millions of Euros to family connected to Hezbollah. [24][25]

    Hezbollah has established several front charities, mainly operating from Great Britain and Germany, to raise funds earmarked to support the group’s members in Lebanon . For example, the British-based Lebanese Welfare Committee, HELP Charity Association for Relief and Abrar Islamic Foundation are among the charities suspected of channeling funds to Sheikh Nasrallah and Hezbollah. [4]

    U.S. Mexican border

    Hezbollah is also accused of using the same southern narcotics routes that Mexican drug kingpins use, that Hezbollah members have entered the U.S. border through drug cartel. [26][27] The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wrote an article on ‎Apr 10, 2009, “The Hezbollah threat: It’s here, now.” [28]

    Blood diamonds

    The Associated Press reported on “Blood diamonds fund Hezbollah” (2004): that Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrilla movement is systematically siphoning profits from West Africa’s multimillion-dollar diamond trade, in part by threatening the Lebanese merchants who long have handled much of the region’s diamond business, US diplomats in West Africa charge.

    The pervasive claim is wider –on organised and co-ercive Hezbollah profiteering from West Africa’s diamond trade– than most US officials have previously acknowledged.

    “One thing that’s incontrovertible is the financing of Hezbollah. It’s not even an open secret; there is no secret,” Larry Andre, deputy chief of mission for the US Embassy in diamond-rich Sierra Leone, told The Associated Press. [29][30]

    T. Schure wrote in “Blood Diamonds: Still Bloody” (May 14, 2010) that West Africa is a well known transit center for smuggled diamonds, especially for Lebanese traders, with many sales funding criminal and terrorist groups including Hezbollah. [31]

    Douglas Farah in the Washington Post: “Digging Up Congo’s Dirty Gems; Officials Say Diamond Trade Funds Radical Islamic Groups”, that diamond dealers and intelligence sources said Hezbollah and other groups buy diamonds in. Congo — sometimes through middlemen, sometimes directly.

    European and American intelligence sources have long known that Hezbollah has raised significant amounts of money in West Africa through the largely Shiite Muslim Lebanese communities in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Togo. There are an estimated 120,000 Lebanese in West Africa, mostly involved in import-export businesses.

    “Hezbollah is active in all these countries and are deeply involved in many businesses across the region,” said one European official tracking the movement. “It is only a small part of the Lebanese community that is sympathetic, but many people contribute to them just to keep Hezbollah off their backs.”

    For at least since the early 1980s, Hezbollah had also raised some cash through the sale of diamonds from Sierra Leone, intelligence sources said. Bah, they said, was long suspected of brokering diamond deals through buyers connected to Hezbollah, assisted by sympathetic Lebanese businessmen across the region. [32]

    Character, racism, fascism

    A writer in the Christian Science Monitor explains that “Hizbullah’s real goal is racist: To free the Middle East holy lands of Jews… Hizbullah’s goal is not the “liberation” of Palestine. Its members are not Palestinian. They are (Arab) Islamic extremists who want to “liberate” all Islamic land.”[33]

    Its Al-Manar television is infamous for being racist, several European countries, including France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as Australia, have also taken measures to block Al-Manar. In March 2005, the broadcasting regulators in the European Union agreed to ban satellite broadcasting of Al-Manar on the basis that the channel carried racist material and incitement. As a result, several satellite service providers, most of them European, dropped Al-Manar, making it unavailable in North and South America, Asia and Australia. Al-Manar, is, however, still available in Europe through Arab satellite companies and its Web site offers English, French and Spanish translations of its material. [34]

    On its TV, Jews are termed pigs and monkeys (stemming from radical Islamic teaching of “apes & pigs” – branding Christians as pigs, Jews as apes [18][19][20][21][22][23]) and the Holocaust is denied. Participants in a network-sponsored symposium urge that Israel “be completely wiped out” and “just like Hitler fought the Jews” the “great Islamic nation of Jihad” should “fight the Jews and burn them.” [35]

    It has been written in an article titled “Hezbollah’s Nazi roots” that “Hezbollah’s Nazi salute evokes memories of Hitler’s support for Arab agitators such as the Grand Mufti (al-Husayni) of Jerusalem and the leaders of a pro-Nazi coup.”[36]

    From the book, ‘Planting hatred, sowing pain: the psychology of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict’:

    Palestinians are constantly exposed to cultural products that expouse classical anti-Semitic ideas. Fir example, a television series produced by Hezbollah, the south Lebanon Shiite militia group, titled Al-Shatat. This series is focused oin the old middle-ages myth of the blood libel (in which Jews –supposedly– need the blood of Christian children for the Passover matzoth). [37]

    Related, from an ADL speech:

    In recent years, Jews were killed because they were Jews, something we have not witnessed since World War II, at the hands of jihadists. There was the Buenos Aires bombings of the Israeli embassy and the Jewish center; there was the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl in Pakistan; there was the kidnapping and murder of Ilan Halimi in Paris; and there was the attack on the Seattle Jewish Federation. Hamas and Hezbollah do not want to kill for land, but to eliminate Jews and a Jewish presence.

    [38]

    Nasrallah & the Jews

    Within a month of Nasrallah’s taking over as leader, Hezbollah (with the help of Iranian intelligence) bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injuring over 200. The next attack perpetrated by Hezbollah—again with Iranian help—was the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killing 86 and injuring over 200.

    The widening arena of Hezbollah’s attacks stemmed from Nasrallah’s perception that Jews anywhere are legitimate targets. In fact, Nasarallah has said:

    If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002)[39][40][41][42]

    Shiite scholar Amal Saad-Ghorayeb analyzed the anti-Jewish roots of Hezbollah ideology in her book Hezbollah: Politics & Religion. In it, she quotes Hassan Nasrallah describing his antipathy toward Jews:

    If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli. (New Yorker, Oct. 14, 2002)[43]

    Nasrallah also incoroporates anti-Semitic rhetoric in speeches. For example, he has characterized Jews as the “grandsons of apes and pigs” and “Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.” (MEMRI: Al- Manar, Feb. 3, 2006) [44][45]

    In 1998, Ashura commemorations of Hessein’s martyrdom coincided with Israel’s fiftieth anniversary. Nasrallah used the occasion to lambaste Israelis as “the descendants of apes and pigs. “A few million vagabonds from all over the world, brought together…” [46][47][48]

    Iran’s arm: “Big Satan, Little Satan”

    Israel and the United States as Portrayed in the Doctrine of Hezbollah:

    1) Hatred of Israel (“that vile microbe”) and the Jewish people, –As an arm of Iran it regards, [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] and it seeks to– Eradicating the ‘Little Satan.’ 2) Hatred of the United States (“the big Satan”) [55]

    Death cult, suicide missions, martyrdom philosophy, inventing ‘mass casualty’ bombing

    The doctrine of Hezbollah: Suicide attacks (“the shortest road to Allah”) are of supreme value. [56]

    In May 2006, Nasrallah appeared on the network to explain that “our nation’s willingness to sacrifice their blood, souls, children, fathers, and families” is an advantage over the Jews “who guard their lives.” [57]

    The modern, high-casualty suicide attack, which has changed our lives irreversibly, was invented by Hezbollah in Lebanon in 1982. [5]

    To attack the multinational forces, Hezbolah invented a terrible new weapon–the suicide truck bomb. The group loaded several hundred pounds of explosives into a truck. A member of the group–someone prepared to sacrifice his or her life–would drive the truck in front of an embassy or into a military base. The driver then set off the explosives with a control switch in the truck’s cab. The detonation would instantly destroy the driver, the truck, and any buildings or people standing within several hundred feet. Sheikh Fadlallah and Hezbollah never took credit for these attacks. As a Shi’ite cleric, Fadlallah knew that Islam would get tarnished by terrorism and the killing of innocent civilians. Fadlallah also claimed to be running the Hezbollah as a political, not a military organization. However, as Many Islamic nation have declared jihads against enemies. For this reason, an organization calling itself the “Islamic Jihad” publicly claimed responsibility for terrorists acts in Lebanon. For several years, the United States and other governments tried to find out who was running the Islamic Jihad. In fact, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad were one and the same. [58]

    Regional plans

    Amongst its stated objectives is the establishment of a Shiite theocracy in Lebanon. [59] Hezbollah’s goal is the establishment of an Islamic state encompassing Lebanon and Israel. [60] Many in the Lebanese Christian diaspora, beyond the reach of Hezbollah intimidation, speak out forcefully against turning Lebanon into a Shia theocracy emulating Iran. [61]

    Global Plans

    The Associated Press reported in May, 2010, that a Muslim cleric calls for ‘Greater Iran’ – Shi’ite Islamic union would stretch from Afghanistan to Israel. Ayatollah Mohammad Bagher Kharrazi said the creation of what he termed an “Islamic United States” is a central aim of the political party he leads – called Hizbullah, or Party of God. He added that he hoped to make his vision a reality if the party won the next presidential election. “The Islamic United States will be an introduction to the formation of the global village of the oppressed and that will be a prelude to the single global rule of the Mahdi,” the newspaper quoted him as saying. [62][63]

    Violence, Bloodshed

    Their known spreading of violence & bloodshed includes:

    Regional: Lebanon, Israel

    Kidnappings, torture

    Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [64] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

    Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [63] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

    In March, 1984, Hezbollah operatives kidnapped William Francis Buckley, the CIA’s station chief in Lebanon. He was whisked to Damascus and on to Tehran, where, after 15 months of torture, he succumbed to a heart attack. [65]

    Feb. 17, 1988: The group kidnaps Col. William Higgins, a U.S. Marine serving with a United Nations truce monitoring group in Lebanon, and later murders him.

    The United States asserts that top Hezbollah military commander who was one of America’s most wanted men, accused of involvement in a string of bombings, hijackings and kidnappings during the 1980s and 1990s, Imad Mughniyeh, was also behind the torture and murder of William Buckley, the CIA station chief in Beirut, in 1984; the kidnapping, torture and murder of Lieutenant Colonel William Richard Higgins of the Marines, who was on peacekeeping duty in Lebanon in 1988; and, through the Islamic Jihad Organization, the seizure of Western hostages in Beirut during the 1980s. [66] [67] [68]

    From a legal claim against Iran:

    In the instant case the evidence once again discloses that Iran provided Hezbollah with funding, direction and training for its terrorist activities in Lebanon, including the kidnapping and torture of Terry Anderson hezbollah kidnapping torture and his imprisonment as a hostage for 2,454 days. [69]

    Dec. 31, 1986: Under the alias Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Hezbollah announces it had kidnapped and murdered three Lebanese Jews. The organization previously had taken responsibility for killing four other Jews since 1984. [70]

    The 1985 Hezbollah torture-murder of Isaac Tarab, 63, and Chaim Halala Cohen, 39, the 1986 Hezbollah’s torturing to death of Ibrahim Benesti, aged 54, of Beirut, and his elderly relatives, Yehudah and Yosef, Benesti’s family – like many Lebanese Jews – had been in Lebanon since 2,000 B.C. (before the birth of Mohammed), [described as a charitable and kindly candy store owner who gave free candy to children of all religions]. All these crimes were motivated for no other reason than for the victims simply being Jewish.[71] See: Character, racism, fascism.

    The Time had a detailed piece by William Dowell in May 23, 1988 titled: “Three Years in the Belly of Beirut”:

    “They weren’t human or inhuman. They were nonhuman.” That was how French Journalist Jean-Paul Kauffmann, quoting fellow hostage Michel Seurat, , described the pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad terrorists who held him hostage for three years. The wrenching account of his kidnaping, captivity and release appeared last week in L’Evenement du Jeudi, the French newsmagazine Kauffmann worked for when he and French Researcher Seurat were abducted in May 1985.
    The two men became hostages by chance after missing a Beirut airport bus and deciding to take a taxi. When a Mercedes pulled alongside and ordered them to stop, they expected a robbery. Instead they were forced into the back of the gunmen’s car. What followed was three years of intimidation and psychological torture.
    For more than a year, the hostages never saw daylight. Their only diversion was reading the handful of books provided by their jailers; Kauffmann read War and Peace more than 20 times. At one point, he and Seurat listened while their Shi’ite captors spent eight days torturing an Arab suspected of being a spy. When it was over, Kauffmann’s jailer joked, “I damaged him a little. He had two broken ribs. We broke both his legs. Finally he talked, and we set him free.” Freedom, Kauffmann learned, was a euphemism for death.
    In one of the most bizarre episodes, Seurat was allowed a brief visit in August 1985 with his wife and daughters in Beirut, and then returned to the cell loaded down with sociology books. It was the last time he saw his family. A month later, he was deathly ill with hepatitis. A Lebanese Jewish doctor, Elie Hallat, who was also a hostage, pleaded in vain for Seurat’s release. As his condition worsened, a Shi’ite commander volunteered a transfusion. “You are becoming a Shi’ite,” joked a captor after Seurat was given blood. In fact, the researcher was dying. By then French Hostages Marcel Carton and Marcel Fontaine had been added to the group. “So I am going to die,” Seurat told his friends.
    In March 1986, the Islamic Jihad announced that it had “executed” Seurat. It seems likely, however, that he succumbed, at 39, to his disease. But the jailers told the hostages he was alive and recovering in a hospital. Kauffmann later learned from a radio newscast that Hallat, doomed by his captors’ rabid anti-Semitism, had been executed. Kauffmann, Carton and Fontaine were continually moved from apartment to apartment. At one point Kauffmann was wrapped in bandages like a mummy, sealed in a metal box and bolted under the chassis of a truck. When he banged on the side, he was told he would be shot. “Kill me,” he snapped back. “It doesn’t make any difference.”
    At another point Kauffmann and Fontaine were tied together and placed in a coffin. When they were let out for a moment, Fontaine peered under his blindfold and saw that they were near a cement factory. “They’re going to kill us here, put our bodies in cement and dump us in the sea,” said Fontaine. Later Kauffmann and Fontaine were put in a new cell and chained like animals to a spike in the floor. [72]

    At a 2008 proisoner swap-deal, Israel was forced to make with Hezbollah, Bradley Burston wrote “The pleasure that Hezbollah takes in torture.”

    Few innocent people have been tortured like the loved ones of the people murdered by Samir Kuntar, the Palestine Liberation Front monster convicted of a crime so brutal that even the designation terrorist is too good for him. This week, the loved ones will know that Kuntar will be feted to a hero’s welcome staged by Hezbollah, whose claims to being a religious organization, stain the word religious with a level of sadism that is astonishing, reaching new levels with every gloat by the torture master who calls himself a spiritual leader, Hassan Nasrallah. But that will be only one aspect of the glee with which Hezbollah will likely take explicit pride and claim exultant victory.

    Not satisfied with keeping the families of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in the dark for two years as to their fate, a Lebanese report which appears to have been leaked by Hezbollah two days before the prisoner swap, stated that one of the soldiers had survived the kidnapping attack, but that the other was surely dead.

    Then, to torture the families further, the report refrained from revealing which of the two had been killed, or whether the other was still alive. But for sheer gratuitous sadism, the case of Samir Kuntar has few rivals. Consider the survivors of Kuntar’s acts of murder. Consider Smadar Haran, a survivor of the 1979 attack led by Kuntar. Kuntar burst into Haran’s apartment building in the dead of night, seizing Smadar Haran’s husband Danny and their daughter Einat, 4 years old. Desperate to save their two-year-old girl Yael, Smadar Haran huddled with her in a crawl space in the attic. “I will never forget the joy and the hatred in the voices [of Kuntar and his men] as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades,” she later recalled in the Washington Post. “I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed,” she wrote in 2003. “So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. ‘This is just like what happened to my mother,’ I thought.” Smadar Haran’s personal torture had only begun. She would later learn that Kuntar had dragged her husband Danny and older daughter to the beach nearby, where he shot Danny execution style, making sure that her father’s death would be the last sight her little girl would ever see. Kuntar then took the butt of his assault rifle and brought in down on Einat’s head, crushing it against a rock. Smadar Haran would later recall, “By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her.” Two weeks ago, in an act of heroism that is beyond imagination, Smadar Haran spoke publicly of coming to terms with the impending release of the monster who turned her life into a waking nightmare. “Samir Kuntar isn’t, nor has he ever been, my private prisoner,” she told a news conference. “His fate must be decided now according to Israel’s needs and ethical interests.” …Kuntar… his elevation to the status of hero and martyr to the Palestinian struggle or the Lebanese resistance.

    For Israelis, even after all these years, the release of Kuntar is a form of self-inflicted torture. So heinous, so unpardonable were his crimes, that American Jewish author and journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, himself a veteran of the IDF, wrote on The Atlantic Monthly’s Website… “As unbelievable as this sounds, Israel is actually thinking of swapping Samir Kuntar in a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah. Kuntar is perhaps the most terrible person held in an Israeli prison, a man who crushed the skull of a Jewish child against a rock.” [73]

    Terror attack on US embassy

    The attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon on April 18, 1983 . The bombing was carried out via a stolen van, carrying 2000 pounds of explosives, slamming into the embassy, killing 63 people. [74] [75] [76][77][78]

    Terror attack on peacekeeping US marine

    The attack on U.S. Marine Barracks in Oct. 1983. [79] Hezbollah conducted simultaneous suicide truck bombings against the two buildings housing U.S. Marines and French paratroopers in Beirut, killing 241 Marines and 58 French soldiers who were in Lebanon as part of a multinational peacekeeping mission. [80] [81] [82] [83] A US federal judge found (in 2003) Iran liable for the 1983 bombing of a US marine barracks. [84] [85]

    The Beirut mission started out as an effort to stabilize a fragile peace in a war-torn country. Lebanon had been in turmoil since the Palestine Liberation Organization, having been expelled from Jordan, took refuge there in the 1970s. In 1975, a panoply of Christian and Muslim militias, turned what had been a Middle East oasis into a no-man’s land of urban warfare. The situation fell apart quickly. Islamic Militia leaders began to view the United States and its allies as favoring the Christian-led forces of the Lebanese government. [86]

    Targeting Israeli civilians




    Hezbollah has been targeting Israeli civilians, for years. since the 1980s, (Which prompted Israel in 1996 to conduct a defensive operation “Grapes of Wrath.” [87]) its main weapon – firing rockets, missiles into residential areas[88][89] [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95]. Though there were also other methods like in Apr 2001 – A 42 year-old Israeli woman was stabbed to death in Haifa. Her murder was the initiation rite of a terrorist cell, whose members were apprehended in July. Six members of a Hezbollah-linked Palestinian terrorist cell responsible for the murder, originally thought to be criminally motivated, were arrested in July. The murder was the initiation rite of one of the terrorists into the organization. [96][97]

    Use of its civilian population in war


    Use of Lebanese as human shields [98] [99] [100] [101] [102] [103], (copying the Arab-Palestinian tactics routine [24] [25] [26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37]), especially was publicized, in their initiated war with Israel, Hezbollah’s use of “Christian villages as shields in missile attacks.” witnesses: “If Israel does nothing Hezbollah will continue to fire rockets from inside Lebanon shockingly using Christians as human shields actually.” “Hezbollah is hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields.” [104] [105], this crime has been categorized as a “Hezbollah specialty” [106], even using the U.N.[107], A.) to cause casualties among their own Arab population, especially among children, in order to generate sympathy and an outcry in the Arab world. B.) Hated Israelis’ image get tarnished, an “important” goal in it of itself to make the Zionists look as “killers.” C.) To cripple Israel’s humane army to respond, thus enables them to come out as “heroes.” [108] & saviours against the Zionist enemy.”

    Subjugation, persecution

    Hezbollah has a long history of persecuting Christians, decries a Lebanese author.[109]

    The writer W. Phares explains on the suffering of civilians, especially since Hezbollah’s take over in 2000:

    Such takeover by the Jihadist militia was expected to provoke an exodus by thousands of civilians who would have been subjected to Hezbollah’s persecution. However suddenly on May 23, the Israeli Government then under Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered a quick pull out from the security zone without waiting for the local force, at the time known as ‘South Lebanon Army’ (SLA) to be transferred under the United Nations or to operate as a local force to stop Hezbollah until the UN would decide what to do. The population of the “security zone” was about 150,000 counting the district of Jezzine; and its local forces were about 3,000 strong. the make up of the population was Christian, Shia and Druse with some Sunni villages to the East. To their north Hezbollah had massed its forces backed by Iranian Pasdaran advisors. Between 1984 and 2000 Hezbollah launched several offensives against the SLA positions but was unable to overrun them permanently. [110]

    Civil war

    Some of civil war/clashes waged on the Lebanese by the Hezbollah:

    In Jan. 2007, clash pits Hezbollah against rule in Lebanon. The police said at least three people died and 100 more were wounded throughout the country in the violence. [111] [112]

    “Rival factions return to arms as Lebanon stares into the abyss” in Nov 2007.[113]

    In May 8, 2008 Clashes erupted as Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah claims ‘War’ [114], clashes between Hezbollah and Druze continued in Lebanon for the 5th day, it erupted in Lebanon’s northern port city of Tripoli, as fighting between the Hezbollah militia and its rivals grew. [115][116] The Lebanese army said it will intervene, it will use force from to stop fighting, which brough the overall toll to 81 dead and about 250 wounded. [117] [118]

    In July 2008, fighting among Lebanese government and the Islamic Hezbollah terrrorists categorized as “Sectarian battles,” the battles killed six, wounded 50. [119][120][121]

    In 28 Aug 2008, Hezbollah has “brazenly attacked the Lebanese Army” – in its shooting-attack on an army helicopter, killing 1st Lt. Samer Hanna and wounding several others – so say the leaders of Lebanon’s pro-democracy movement. This is not the first time Hezbollah has attacked the Lebanese government. But it is one of the boldest attacks to date against the army. Hezbollah kills Lebanese Army Officer. [122]

    Global violence

    Hezbollah is another example (like Al Qaeda) of an Islamist insurgency that is both local and transnational. [123]

    Attack on US, French embassies in Kuwait

    Hezbollah’s responsible for U.S. and French embassies attacks in Kuwait in 1983 [124]. The American embassy in Kuwait was bombed in a series of attacks whose targets also included the French embassy, the control tower at the airport, the country’s main oil refinery, and a residential area for employees of the American corporation Raytheon. Six people were killed, including a suicide truck bomber, and more than 80 others were injured. In Kuwait, 17 people were arrested and convicted for participating in the attacks. One of those convicted was Mustafa Youssef Badreddin, a cousin and brother-in-law of one of Hezbollah’s senior officers, Imad Mughniyah. After a six-week trial in Kuwait, Badreddin was sentenced to death for his role in the bombings.[125]

    Hijacking Kuwaiti planes

    A year after the 1983 attacks (on US, French targets), Kuwait Airways flight 221 was hijacked wherein the hijackers demanded the release of Islamic militant: ‘Al-Dawa 17.’ Two US passengers were killed and Iranian police freed the hijackers in Iran where the plane had been diverted. Imad Mugniyah and Hezbollah were accused by US authorities in the hijacking and killings.

    In 1988, militants hijacked a second plane, Kuwait Airways Flight 422, with 110 passengers for 16 days. At one point during the hijacking, the plane was diverted to Iran where multiple survivors reportedly believed the original hijackers deplaned and were replaced by a fresh crew of hijackers who were armed with increased gun power.

    During the ordeal, the hijackers met with reporters who quoted one as saying upon requesting the refueling of the plane in order to enable the plane to leave Algeria, “We will liquidate our account with Kuwait elsewhere. We don’t want to have the massacre in a friendly country.” A hijacker was quoted as saying, “Kuwait has to know that we do not fear death.” The hijackers demands included the release of Al-Dawa 17.

    The plane was diverted to Cyprus where two young Kuwaitis aged 20 and 25 were tortured and then shot. Their dead bodies were dumped on the tarmac of the Cyprus airport.[126][127][128]

    Iraq

    Already in November 24, 2003, The New York Times elaborated in an article: “A region inflamed, the hand of Tehran,” Hezbollah, in Iraq, that Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Shiite group, has established a significant presence in Iraq.[129]

    In 2006. U.S. Officials said: “Hezbollah Training Iraqi Shiite Militia Group.“ [130][131]

    The Wall Street Journal wrote (2007) on Iran’s Proxy War, The involvement of Hezbollah in Iraq. [132]

    The BBC reported on additional proof, US officials had in 2007 of the link. [133] In an article on Iran in Iraq, the Washington Post wrote on Iran’s Hezbollah soldiers and methods in the war in Iraq.[134] the CNN reported on a Hezbollah agent played deaf before confessing, the top special operations officer with Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia pretended to be deaf and mute when he was captured in Iraq.[135]

    In 2008, there were reports on Hezbollah training Iraqis in Iran[136] Iraqi president Jalal Talabani charged (May, 2008) Hezbollah interference, in a Baghdad interview, he accused the leader of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah of meddling in Iraq’s affairs.[137]

    In May, 2010, the US said that Syria must curb arm shipments to Hezbollah, top US diplomat has urged Syria to do more to prevent arms shipments to the militant Lebanese Hezbollah and stem the flow of militants into Iraq.[138]

    Somalia

    The New York Times reported on Hezbollah in Somalia. [139] From NPR (November 15, 2006), the “U.N. Report ties Somali Islamists to Hezbollah,” in an alarming report about the situation in Somalia. [140] More than 700 Somali fighters are said to have gone to support and get training from Hezbollah.. [141]

    Afghanistan

    Hezbollah Link in the war in Afghanistan have been found. [142]

    Sudan

    The Hezbollah, reportedly, is very supportive of Al-Bashir’s genocide in the Sudan. [143]

    Egypt

    In 2009, the BBC reported that Egypt was ‘hunting Hezbollah suspects’[144], prosecutor accused Hezbollah of plotting attacks in Egypt, of sending operatives to Egypt to carry out attacks in the country and to smuggle weapons.[145] [146] [147] On Apr 2010 An Egyptian court convicted 26 men of belonging to a Hezbollah cell. [148] The Hezbollah Plot exposed Egypt’s shared interests with Israel.[149] Analysts said that the Egypt-Hezbollah standoff dents Egypt-Iran relations.[150]

    Azerbaijan

    Hezbollah plotted embassy attack’ in Azerbaijan – was revealed in 2009. A trial under way in Azerbaijan of two Hezbollah members and four Azeris, where prosecutors drew a link between Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror missions. [151][152]

    Europe

    Hijacking TWA flight



    Among the highlighted terror crimes of the Hezbollah is the: TWA Hijacking, June 14, 1985: A Trans-World Airlines flight ‘847’ was hijacked en route to Rome from Athens by two Lebanese Hizballah terrorists, and forced to fly to Beirut. The eight crew members and 145 passengers were held for seventeen days, during which one American hostage, a U.S. Navy sailor, was murdered. After being flown twice to Algiers, the aircraft was returned to Beirut after Israel released 435 Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners. [153][154][155][156] [157][158]

    The plane was on a scheduled flight from Cairo to Athens. Hijackers –the two terrorists were brandishing grenades and pistols– forced it to Beirut and twice went to Algiers before returning to Beirut releasing most of the (non-American) 152 passengers along the way, and murdering U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, one of the passengers—beating him, torturing, shooting him in the temple and dumping his body on the tarmac of Beirut International Airport (June 15).

    On June 30, Hezbollah released 39 American passengers they held captive for 17 days.

    German authorities arrested Mohammed Ali Hammadi and convicted him of Stethem’s murder in 1987. Hammadi was paroled in 2005 and returned to Beirut, where he is believed to be living today (2009). [159][160] [161]

    From a letter, Robert’s brother Kenneth has sent to president George W. Bush in 2006 as Robert’s murderer was released by the German government (and fled to Lebanon) in an apparent exchange for a German hostage in Iraq:

    While Robert was being dragged to the door, he knew that all he had to do in order to live was to cry into that transmitter, but he wouldn’t do it. He would not give in to the demands of the terrorists. He would not allow the honor and dignity of America to be intimidated by the fear and pain that Hammadi and terrorists everywhere represent. Robert sacrificed his life in order to protect our liberty and defend our way of life.[162]

    Dowining of a French airline

    The Los Angeles Times wrote in November 1, 1989 that a Palestinian group allied with Hezbollah is linked to a plane crash.

    Specialists have linked a terrorist bomb that destroyed a French airliner last month (Oct, 1989) in Africa to a Palestinian group allied with the pro-Iranian Hezbollah, the newspaper Figaro said… Working with fragments of a suitcase found in the wreckage of the airliner, specialists in Paris’ central police laboratory found similarities to a terrorist bomb that exploded at a Paris department store almost five years ago. The February 1985 attack at the department store resulted in the arrest of Habib Maammar, a Tunisian member of a group directed by the Palestinian bomb maker Abu Ibrahim. [163]

    Terror attack on French department stores

    Paris’ Boulevard Haussmann was targeted in 1985 and 1986 during attacks on Paris department stores, many of them claimed by the Lebanese Hezbollah militants, which left 13 dead and 303 injured. Terrorists from Hezbollah, set off bombs in both Printemps and Galeries Lafayette in December 1985, injuring 43 people.[164] [165]

    Workers at Printemps in December 1985 when Hezbollah bombs exploded on the ground floor there and in the Galeries Lafayette department store, recalled the attack which led to a bomb scare in Dec. 2008, when explosives were found there. [166] [167]

    Network

    Although Europe has recently been exempt from Hezbollah attacks, numerous intelligence experts and officials assert that the group’s operatives maintain cells across the continent. German authorities, in particular, have expressed concern about the presence of several hundred Hezbollah members in their country.

    Reports of an increase in Hezbollah recruiting have emerged in eastern European countries, specifically Slovakia, Bosnia and Russia . And over the past few years, Hezbollah has sent operatives with European identification papers to Israel in order to collect intelligence for future attacks. Efforts by European authorities to curtail Hezbollah’s influence have included France ‘s 2004 ban of Hezbollah’s television station and chief propaganda machine, Al- Manar, from that nation’s satellite television providers. Spain and the United States have made similar moves. [4]

    Attempts of attacks between 1988-1996

    Other attacks researchers have attributed to Hezbollah include an unsuccessful attempt to carry out attacks in Cyprus in 1988; a plot, foiled by Spanish police, to carry out attacks against Jewish targets in Europe in 1989; an unsuccessful attempt to detonate a car bomb outside a Jewish community building in Romania in 1992; and a planned 1996 attack, also foiled by police, on an Israeli institution in Paris. [168]

    Attempts of ‘massive-attacks’ in 2009

    In 2009, there was a report of a “Massive Hezbollah Terror Attack Against Israeli Target In Europe,” that has been thwarted. [169]

    Latin America

    From a US statement in 1995 titled “Latin American Terrorism backed by Iran”

    “We believe that Hizballah activities, which include narcotics and smuggling as well as terrorism, are supported in the tri-border area of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. The organization is known to have cells in Colombia and Venezuela as well. Hizballah cells are concealed amidst the large Shia’ Muslim population of Lebanese origin which has settled in the tri-border area.” [170]

    Venezuela

    US designated two Hezbollah operatives in Venezuela as terrorists- Hezbollah has used the tri-border region between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay to recruit, train, raise and launder money, and plot attacks. [171]

    Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez (Called a dictator [172] [173][174] & his regime a dictatorship [175], and has close ties with the Mullahcracy theocracy dictatorship of the Islamic Republic of Iran [176] [177]) has publicly supported a Hezbollah candidate for the Lebanese government, he was a supporter of Hezbollah during the 2006 war in Lebanon; afterward, the group placed signs in Lebanon proclaiming “Gracias, Chavez!” He openly invited Hezbollah members to live in Venezuela. Venezuela’s embassies in the Middle East have been used to launder Hezbollah’s dirty money, per investigation by the U.S. Treasury Dept In January 2010, Israeli intelligence released information that Chavez shipped heavy arms to Hezbollah the year before; the ship originated in Venezuela, stopped in Iran and docked in Lebanon. [178]

    Chavez has a close relationship with Iran’s President Ahmedinejad. The two leaders regularly visit each other. In 2007, they instituted weekly flights between Tehran and Caracas. Interestingly, the aircraft stops one place – Damascus, Syria. Journalists and others have tried to book a seat on the aircraft and have been denied. The passenger and cargo manifests are kept secret.

    In an article (2009) in Forbes Magazine it was discussed how an attack by Israel against Gaza could be fought asymmetrically by Hezbollah – with help from Venezuela and Chavez. [179]

    (Worth mentioning [asides from Chavez’s “personal” war with “imperialist” US] that Venezuela, has a large Lebanese-Arab community [180], many of them supported, financed Chavez’s presidency. There’s also a significant concentration of this community in the area bordering with Colombia (Macau). Jews have been attacked[181] in that country. From a (2000) report on “Antisemitism And Racism,” responses to the intifada in the media, in wall graffiti and by Arab organizations in Venezuela such as FEARAB (Arab Federation for Latin America) were directed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel, which was accused of causing the Palestinian tragedy. The radical language used against Israel was not infrequently antisemitic, for example, the comparison of Israeli soldiers with Nazis [182], described (in 2009) as “the New Hero in the Arab World.” [183], moreover, Hezbollah’s Nasrallah said: Arabs have much to learn from Chavez.[184], he was even exhorting his countrymen to return to their “Arab roots,” Chavez has paid state visits to rouge-Arab-Islamic states like: Libya, Iraq and Iran and signed a series of mutual-cooperation.[185], it has been said that “The Arabs have appreciated Chavez’s declarations of support, and the Arab League has promised to lobby in behalf of Venezuela in the United Nations.”[186], a defector even accused: ‘Chavez gave money to Al Qaeda.’[187] In an alarming report, the ADL wrote (2008) “Chavez’s Venezuela: The Jewish Community Under Threat” on praise for Chavez and his anti-Israel actions echoed across the Arab and Muslim, Chavez Fosters Atmosphere of Intimidation and Fear for Venezuelan Jewish community.[188], and that the Chavez Regime is ‘Fostering Anti-Semitism, hate and Supporting Radical Islamists, which led to a rise in Anti-Semitism in Venezuela.[189], Intelligence sources say Chavez is withholding information on Arabs, some of whom were important financial contributors to terrorism.[190], and has illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists. [191])

    Attack on Israeli embassy in Argentina

    Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [192] [193] [194] [195]

    Attack on a Jewish center (Amia) in Argentina

    Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [191] [192] [193] [194]

    Hezbollah and Iran both are also charged, via clear evidence, by Argentinian court, terror bombing on the (civilian building) Amia ‘Jewish-Argentine Mutual Association Community Cente’ which killed 85 and wounded 300. [196][197][198][199], furthermore, Argentina accuses Iran of meddling in probe of the 1994 Jewish center bombing[200], the investigation finds Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian involvement. [201]

    Haaretz wrote in detail on “How Iran planned the Buenos Aires blast – 1994” [202]

    Bombing in Panama

    July 19, 1994 Panama, A suicide bomber reportedly linked to Hezbollah detonated a bomb on a commuter plane in Colón, Panama, killing all 21 people aboard, including 12 Jewish businessmen, at least four of whom were Israeli, and three U.S. citizens. [203][204][205]

    Earlier, on July 18, a bomb killed 95 people at a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The next day, an explosion on a commuter plane in Panama killed all 21 people aboard, inclding 12 Jews. An anti-Israel group in Lebanon had indirectly claimed responsibility for both attacks. [206]

    Experts on terrorism make the link, after the Lebanese newspaper An- Nahar published a communique from an organization calling itself Ansar Allah taking responsibility for the AMIA bombing as well as the bombing over Panama of an Alas Chiricanas passenger airliner.

    As it turns out, the name Ansar Allah turned out to be one of the many fictitious names that Hezbollah has used to claim responsibility for its attacks. Moreover, experience has shown that Hezbollah has habitually adopted this method for the clear purpose of avoiding blame for the various actions it has carried out, except for those realized in Lebanon where the conflict has taken the form of a conventional war. [207]

    From the LA Times, Aug. 4, 1994 “Hezbollah: The Latin connection.”

    Bombings in Argentina and Panama prompt concern over the radical group’s growing presence in the region. Experts say lax security and porous borders create a prime base for terrorists.[208]

    LEADING APARTHEID AND OPPRESSOR OF THE WORLD SETS UP “HUMAN RIGHTS” DIV. [OIC], LOL

    April 23, 2010

    LEADING APARTHEID AND OPPRESSOR OF THE WORLD SETS UP “HUMAN RIGHTS” DIV. [OIC], LOL

    This BITTER JOKE is in the news:
    Major Muslim group sets up human rights division 22 Apr 2010
    … The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has announced it is setting up a special division that will deal with human rights.

    http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=173731


    The regionalization of minority rights is most advanced within the West, in Europe and the Americas, By contrast, there is virtually no enthusiasm in Asia or the Arab/Muslim world to defelop regional norms on minortitiy rights. The whole issue remains essentially a taboo topic in many Asian and Middle Eastern countries…. Interestingly, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, representing Muslim-majority countries around the world, has a Department on Minority Affairs, but its formal resolutions focus exclusively on the rights of Muslim minorities living in non-Muslim majority countries (Khan 2002). (For representative example, see the OIC’s resolution ‘On Safeguarding the Rights of Muslim Communites and Minorities in non-OIC Member States’– Resoliution No. 1/10-MM (IS) , adopted at the 10th Session of the Islamic Summit Conference, 16-17 October-2203). The OIC has not attempted to codify norms, or to establish formal monitoring mechanisms, regarding the treatment of ethnic minorities within Muslim-majority countries, such as the oppression of the Kurds in Syria, the Ahwaz in Iran, the Hazars in Afghanistan, the Baluchs in Pakistan,the ‘Al-Akhdam’ in Yemen, or the Berbers in Algeria.

    Last year International Christian Concern placed (Muslim) Eritrea at number nine in its annual Hall of Shame. According to the ICC the intensity of persecution was “high” and “increasing.” In the ICC’s report this year the group abandoned its attempt to rank persecutors, but again included Eritrea among the worst ten. Eritrea placed among the top four in intensity of persecution, along with North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Somalia.

    It’s something along the line of Libya (where 2 Million Africans are oppressed because of racism) & Iran (where everyone suffers under the Islamist boot, especially minorities have a “special” treatment from the bastion of “tolerance,” like: Bahai’, Christians, Jews, Azeris, Baluchis, Ahwazis, etc.) hosting a UN conference on racism…

    Obama to the Arabs: You are my MASTER, I am your slave!

    April 9, 2010

    Obama to the Arabs: You are my MASTER, I am your slave!

    When we were all humiliated by Obama’s dreadful bow to the Saudi Arabian “royal” leader, what went through your mind?

    Here’s my understanding of the psychology of Barack Oabma. The mentality of SUBMISSION to the ARAB MASTER is very deep in the psyche of non-Arab Muslims. Which is why he’d rather risk some critics from the left in raising the bar of the attacks in Afghanistan instead. His panic from the ‘Arab street’ [within the context of greater Muslim street] is far greater than of that from the “average” Muslim world.

    Don’t get me wrong, don’t under estimate the power of the Arab lobby in particular as a opposed to the greater Islamic lobby in the world and even in Washington.

    Of course the lobbyists together with the Gulf Arab filthy-rich tycoons’ grip is great, but his “bow” is in his “system,”, in his mental background. A Muslim who is Asian or African, etc., concedes to Arab superiority, whether it’s because of Muhammad being an Arab, his glorification of Arabic over others, some of Islamic phrases seeing as degrading Turks and Blacks or because of Arab slavery and Arab racism (the latter, still practiced today), the fact remains that it’s entrenched into the non-Arab Muslims, from which not too many manage to “break up free”.

    Growing up as a Muslim boy in Indonesia, he “learned” among other (Islamic) things, directly or indirectly about the ‘Arab master–hood.’ So, when he was bowing to the Arab king, he was essentially telling us and to the world, what a Salafi Imam says: “Salafi Imam: We Must BELIEVE Arabs are “Master Race” Salafi Movement (cult), Imam Abu Usamah Ath-Thahabi (a Blackamerican), that the Arabs are superior to the non-Arabs (or in other words: the Arabs are the “Master Race”) “.

    Point is, if he has issues from his childhood, he should keep them to himself, don’t drag us all into this garbage ideology.

    Here’s a tip of the iceberg.

    The troubling question is, How can we trust him on the ‘war on terror, on the middle east “peace” process, or on any security issue?
