Islamic jihad massacres – hate crimes en-masse

Islamic Jihad massacres, as hate crimes en-masse

Every Islamic terror act, anywhere, is a clear cut case of intolerance. It is always against the “other.”

True, by Islamic Jihad any infidel targets are fair-game. It’s just that some groups are easier targets than others, as “justification” are aided by propaganda, often backed by some radical liberals in the West. Such are many Muslim aggressors posing as “victims.” For instance, those Arab immigrants’ grandchildren, invaders in Jews’ Israel/Palestine who go by the title “Palestinians,” while some in the West really buy the notion that these mass-murderers (who hide behind civilians, to bring about casualties, to be used as trophies) are just about “Palestine-Arab-State,” ignoring or unaware of their real ethnic cleansing aims from the entire Holy Land.

Ethno-religious hatred classics:

Arab supremacy –derived from Koran, Koranic spirit and themes– especially resulting in enslaving Africans and Asians in the Arab world (often having the “inferior” non-Arabs as ‘sex-slaves’ as well) and the genocide in the Sudan (of already 3.5 million, since the 1950s) by a classic combination of Arab racism and Islamic Jihad. The same diabolical combination that “founded” (in the 1920s) the Arab Vs Israel “conflict,” by infamous Mufti who collaborated with the ultimate ‘racists’ – the WW2 Hitler/Nazis. Ever since, the ‘holy war’ against the Jews in the land has always been under the dual slogan of Allah Akbar and Itbach al-Yahud (AKA genocide). Leaving also behind, an inspired legacy of decades (and current) of ugly Nazi style cartoons in the hateful Arab press.

The Armenian Genocide 1915-23, was both: Turkish ethnic supremacy and an overall holy war against Christians. The same goes to Turkish anti-Greek and anti-Assyrian genocide. Totaling a combined 2.7 million Christian victims.

Ethno-Religious Moro-Muslims VS Philippines’ natives.

Ethno-Religious Malay-Muslims VS Thai natives.

Ethno-Religious Islamic-Hausa-Fulani VS Igbo Christians in Biafra Nigeria – 1960s-70s (3 million dead).
Current (2011-13) Boko Haram Islamic mass-murder campaign in that country, deepens the Ethno-Religious divide.

Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam Black-Muslim supremacy’s anti-White racism is deeply woven with radical Islamic vision. So were its linked Zebra murders in the 1970s and the Beltway snipers shootings in 2002.

Ethno-Religious “pure-Muslim” Pakistani VS Bangladeshi (regarded as the impure) genocide – 1971 (3 million dead).

Ethno-Religious “Palestinian” and Lebanese Muslims VS Christian Natives Maronites in Lebanon. 1970s-2000 (at least 100,000 victims).

Iran-Iraq war – 1980s (a million victims – at least). Racism (Arab supremacy vs Aryan-Iranians) and “we are the true Muslims” motivation, on both sides.

Pakistani Sunnis and Shiites VS Ethno-Religious Ahmadis, resulting in mass violence. So is rampant anti-Ahmadi bigotry among “Palestinian” Arabs.

Ethno-Religious Muslim-Uighur VS Han native Chinese. Terror attacks (not just against government but against ordinary Chinese too) recorded.

Ethno-Religious Indonesian Muslims VS Chinese (especially in the late ’90s, mass rape and murder); Vs native Papuans (100,000 dead); Vs native Catholics in E. Timor (1975-99, resulting in 200,000 victims).

One of the ardent supporters and admirers of Osama bin Laden, who celebrated 9/11 massacre, the pan-Arab, pan-Islamic AEL (Arab European League) founded by Arab Lebanese, former Hezbollah D. A. Jahjah, has been accused of inciting racism and violence in Belgium.

Ever since the bloody ‘Islamic theme of al-Aqsa’ intifada erupted (2000), Jews in Europe have been even an easier target to Islamic anti-Semitism, physical attacks and attempted ethnic cleansing. Such as by Arab/African Muslims in France; by Turkish/Iranian Muslims in Germany; by Arab-Muslims in the Benelux, Sweden and Norway. The kidnappers and torturers to death of Ilan Halimi to the sound of reciting the Koran (Paris, 2006) –for instance– were inspired by Hamas literature.
The (2012) Toulouse school massacre by Mohamed Merah of the Islamic hate group ‘Forsane Alizza,’ (NYT reported Jan/23/12, that its site was laced with hate posting, it typically claimed to be “fighting Islamophobia,” and the DailyTelegraph reported Mar/23/12, that in Jan/12, “Forsane Alizza was banned in France for inciting racial hatred,”) made sure to mention those “Palestinians.”
Likewise, Arabs in Latin America, have been targeting Jews.

The Pakistani Jihadi Lashkar-e-Taiba (“Army of the Pure”) in Mumbai (2008), aided by the ISI (Pakistan Spy Agency) specifically targeted Whites, and even more so the Jews.

Ethno-Religious Arab-Muslims VS native Coptic-Christians in Egypt, hate crimes still going on…

Ethno-Religious (mostly separated by origin/ethnicity as well) Shiite VS Sunnis, and vice versa in Iraq (Zarqawi argued that ‘Shia were more dangerous than the “Zionists and Crusaders,”‘ Egyptian Cleric said -Mar/09- “Shiites are worse than Jews,”) and in Pakistan.
Sunni Vs Alawites, Syria (al-Qaeda cleric’s Fatwa -Jul/12- calls Alawites, “greater infidels than the Christians and Jews”).
Bloodshed going on, full force.
A study about 2011 worldwide terror attacks -for example- found 70% of the (over 12,000) killings were perpetrated by Sunni Muslims. That includes: al-Qaeda, Taliban, and others.

Last point but not least: most “conflicts” and bloodshed around the globe today ARE correlated to Islamism.

Arab writer admits to real apartheid in ALL Arab countries

May 16, 2012

Arab writer admits to Arab Islamic apartheid in ALL Arab nations

al-Mulhim, writing for Arab News, starts off with the infamous racist-Arab “apartheid” slur Israel-bashing, invented by the henchman/spokesperson of Hitler’s pal the Mufti al-Husseini, Ahmad Shukairy in 1961, who called to ‘throw the Jews into the sea,’ and identified himself with Nazis in Argentina in 1962. A systematic categorization so unfairly of any defensive measure — against those wishing to annihilate it — as something negative, despite favoritism in court, in employment policies, democratic Israel applies to its (more than) equally rights, Arabs. It has been used ever since, by all Arab Islamic entities, who practice real apartheid against any ‘other’ group in its midst.  Then, he repeats another Arabist lie, that the Pan-Arabism was simply about “unity”, despite admission from the inventors of the idea to be openly racist and influenced by European fascism, then by German Nazism. Sami al-Jundi: “We were racists, admiring Nazism, reading its books and the source …” Minorities such as Coptic Christians, Berbers, Jews and others, felt immediately the wrath of the racist movement. Some of the champions of pan-Arabism: WW2’s Nazi-Arab Mufti al-Husseini; Butcher Saddam Hussein; Butcher Muammar Qaddafi; Genocidal Butcher Omar al-Bashir; Butcher (Hafez al-) Assad father; Butcher (Bashar al-) Assad son…
The Arab League is infamous for being tacist anti all non-Arabs. Or as writer calls it “racist Arabist.”* No wonder the Arab League has been compared to the KKK *
Berber leader in 2007: “There Is No Worse Colonialism Than That of the Pan-Arabist Clan that Wants to Dominate Our People.”

Thus, the following quoted text is more of the valid points, less of the crappy part… Just be wary of his “Arab unity” terminology.

Arab Spring and the hidden apartheid
By ABDULATEEF AL-MULHIM
Arab News Feb 21, 2012 03:04

The Arabs used it against the Israelis in the media wars to get more world sympathy for the Palestinians. However, we used it to cover up the underlying prejudices that exist in the Arab world.

But, we in the Arab world don’t make it systematic or draft an obvious law endorsing racial discrimination. The Arab world practices it but not in writing, because then it is easier for us to deny the presence of prejudice.
When I speak about the Arab world, I am referring to 22 countries that have religion and language in common, but are also very different. The Arab unity idea …
But all efforts failed to unite the Arabs this way. So what was the reason for failing to unite the Arabs? And why do we see a constant unrest and mistrust amongst us? And why did the Arab Spring spread from one Arab country to another?
Arab countries are the furthest from being homogenized. There are so much differences even within each country, and there is an invisible apartheid in each Arab country.
In the past, the Arab countries accepted the presence of different faiths among them. Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco and Tunisia were the most tolerant Arab nations. In the past, it was common to see Christians, Jews and other faiths living side by side their Arab-Muslim neighbors.
Now, the Arab world has the worst cases of prejudice against anyone who thinks differently from them. In Libya, Ben Ghazi in the east was not on good terms with Tripoli in the west. Iraq has the Sunnis in the middle, Shiites in the south, Kurds in the north and other ethnic minorities. Lebanon, which was once called the Switzerland of the Middle East fell victim to sectarian divides — Druze, Christians, Sunnis and Shiites. Even the rich Gulf states have people called Bidoon or (stateless). And those stateless were born and raised in these rich Gulf states.
Each Arab country had a lot of opportunities to melt its own people in the same social pot. However, it was the mistrust and social divide that made every governing body trust only its own people or tribe. And each ruling faction would use the security issue to mistreat other segments of the society.
Later on, when something goes wrong, they accuse the foreign hands of stirring unrest and never blame the injustice of the system. During these periods of oppression, the finest brains usually head West and the ones who stay behind don’t participate in the development of the country. They isolate themselves and keep their anger to themselves.
And when the situation becomes unbearable and justice is lost, then, you see Arab masses taking the matters to the streets. And at that stage, the invisible Arab apartheid becomes visible……let us be frank, what do you call air raids by some Arab countries’ air force against the civilian citizens of their country? If this is not apartheid, then, what is apartheid? When you see Syrian tanks shelling entire neighborhoods of Syrian towns, then, this is apartheid at its worst form. The Arab Spring was not a surprise.
It was only a matter of time. When you have poverty, prejudice, no social equality, no justice, a bad education system and a hidden form of apartheid, then, why are we surprised to see the people take matters into their own hands?

Even anti-Israel ardent critic R. Goldstone admits the “apartheid” slur, is a lie, a slander!

November 6, 2011

Even anti-Israel ardent critic R. Goldstone admits the “apartheid” slur, is a lie, a slander!

Richard J. Goldstone, is a former justice of the South African Constitutional Court, who led the United Nations fact-finding mission on the Gaza conflict of 2008-9. He was quick to “accuse” Israel of “war crimes” in its (2008-9) anti-Terror operation (‘Cast Lead’). But retracted it after learning the facts.[1] In 2011 (Oct.) he wrote an Op Ed in the New York Times: “Israel and the Apartheid Slander.”

The need for reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians has never been greater. So it is important to separate legitimate criticism of Israel from assaults that aim to isolate, demonize and delegitimize it.

One particularly pernicious and enduring canard that is surfacing again is that Israel pursues “apartheid” policies. In Cape Town starting on Saturday, a London-based nongovernmental organization called the Russell Tribunal on Palestine will hold a “hearing” on whether Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid. It is not a “tribunal.” The “evidence” is going to be one-sided and the members of the “jury” are critics whose harsh views of Israel are well known.

While “apartheid” can have broader meaning, its use is meant to evoke the situation in pre-1994 South Africa. It is an unfair and inaccurate slander against Israel, calculated to retard rather than advance peace negotiations.

I know all too well the cruelty of South Africa’s abhorrent apartheid system, under which human beings characterized as black had no rights to vote, hold political office, use “white” toilets or beaches, marry whites, live in whites-only areas or even be there without a “pass.” Blacks critically injured in car accidents were left to bleed to death if there was no “black” ambulance to rush them to a “black” hospital. “White” hospitals were prohibited from saving their lives.

In assessing the accusation that Israel pursues apartheid policies, which are by definition primarily about race or ethnicity, it is important first to distinguish between the situations in Israel, where Arabs are citizens, and in West Bank areas that remain under Israeli control in the absence of a peace agreement.

In Israel, there is no apartheid. Nothing there comes close to the definition of apartheid under the 1998 Rome Statute: “Inhumane acts … committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime.” Israeli Arabs — 20 percent of Israel’s population — vote, have political parties and representatives in the Knesset and occupy positions of acclaim, including on its Supreme Court. Arab patients lie alongside Jewish patients in Israeli hospitals, receiving identical treatment.

To be sure, there is more de facto separation between Jewish and Arab populations than Israelis should accept. Much of it is chosen by the communities themselves. Some results from discrimination. But it is not apartheid, which consciously enshrines separation as an ideal. In Israel, equal rights are the law, the aspiration and the ideal; inequities are often successfully challenged in court.

The situation in the West Bank is more complex. But here too there is no intent to maintain “an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group.” This is a critical distinction, even if Israel acts oppressively toward Palestinians there. South Africa’s enforced racial separation was intended to permanently benefit the white minority, to the detriment of other races. By contrast, Israel has agreed in concept to the existence of a Palestinian state in Gaza and almost all of the West Bank, and is calling for the Palestinians to negotiate the parameters.

But until there is a two-state peace, or at least as long as Israel’s citizens remain under threat of attacks from the West Bank and Gaza, Israel will see roadblocks and similar measures as necessary for self-defense, even as Palestinians feel oppressed. As things stand, attacks from one side are met by counterattacks from the other. And the deep disputes, claims and counterclaims are only hardened when the offensive analogy of “apartheid” is invoked.

Those seeking to promote the myth of Israeli apartheid often point to clashes between heavily armed Israeli soldiers and stone-throwing Palestinians in the West Bank, or the building of what they call an “apartheid wall” and disparate treatment on West Bank roads. While such images may appear to invite a superficial comparison, it is disingenuous to use them to distort the reality. The security barrier was built to stop unrelenting terrorist attacks; while it has inflicted great hardship in places, the Israeli Supreme Court has ordered the state in many cases to reroute it to minimize unreasonable hardship. Road restrictions get more intrusive after violent attacks and are ameliorated when the threat is reduced.

Of course, the Palestinian people have national aspirations and human rights that all must respect. But those who conflate the situations in Israel and the West Bank and liken both to the old South Africa do a disservice to all who hope for justice and peace.

Jewish-Arab relations in Israel and the West Bank cannot be simplified to a narrative of Jewish discrimination. There is hostility and suspicion on both sides. Israel, unique among democracies, has been in a state of war with many of its neighbors who refuse to accept its existence. Even some Israeli Arabs, because they are citizens of Israel, have at times come under suspicion from other Arabs as a result of that longstanding enmity.

The mutual recognition and protection of the human dignity of all people is indispensable to bringing an end to hatred and anger. The charge that Israel is an apartheid state is a false and malicious one that precludes, rather than promotes, peace and harmony. [2]

J. B. Pollack explains the context and timely importance of the Op Ed article:

Goldstone’s article anticipates the forthcoming “Russell Tribunal on Palestine,” to be held in South Africa. Named after the hearings held in the 1960s by philosopher Bertrand Russell in the United Kingdom to protest the Vietnam War, the Russell Tribunal will bring the emotive symbolism of apartheid to a make-believe judicial process whose outcome is already predetermined.
The chair of the panel, anti-war activist Terry Crawford-Browne, has already called for international boycotts of Israel. One of the star witnesses is Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who conducted a reign of terror in South Africa’s black townships in the 1980s. Another is former U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney, who recently busied herself with propaganda for Muammar Gaddafi.

Despite the panel’s obvious lack of credibility, it will no doubt be touted by western leftists and third world governments as the basis for a renewed push at the United Nations to isolate Israel and promote unilateral Palestinian statehood. Goldstone’s op-ed is a timely rejoinder and the beginning of what appears to be sincere penance for the damage done by his slanderous report on the Gaza conflict of 2008-9.[3]

AT: Israeli Democracy vs. Arab Apartheid

October 31, 2011

Israeli Democracy vs. Arab Apartheid

By JanSuzanne Krasner

October 26, 2011

It is a falsehood to say that Israel is an apartheid state.  This indictment, made by Mahmoud Abbas repeatedly in his speeches, is an Orwellian distortion of the truth, but it has been extremely effective in the public relations war of words that plays out in the United Nations, on the international stage, in the media, and on college campuses every day.

This is a grave and toxic travesty that needs to be made right.  In light of the “Arab Spring” spreading seeds of sharia law throughout the Middle East, Western civilization needs to see the truth.  Americans are being hijacked by propaganda against Israel…and not defending Israel’s right to be a Jewish state will lead to our own eventual downfall.

The analogy of Israel to South African apartheid commands a response.  Because of its catchy, slick word combination and its connotations that evoke vivid images of human unfairness and suffering, it has became a fashionable narrative for the media and international community’s discourse.  But it is not factual, and it is very deceptive.

Labeling Israel “apartheid” is meant to provoke worldwide criticism and elicit human rights-based anger that sanctions demonstrations, boycotts, and the denigration of Jewish morals.  This finger-pointing is an intentional attack on Israel.  It condones terror in the guise of “freedom-fighters,” encourages prosecution of Israeli officials in foreign courts, promotes laws against Israeli goods, and supports boycotts of stores selling Israeli products.  It sees the advantage of kidnapping soldiers, allows the destruction of Jewish artifacts and religious sites, and tries to exclude Jews from their legitimate claim to their historic homeland.

Factually speaking, apartheid was the policy of the South African government as a way of dealing with the white and non-white social, political and economic issues up until 1992.  It was the official policy that established and maintained racial segregation and racial discrimination.  The South African non-whites could not vote, and they had to carry a “Pass Book,” or they risked being jailed or deported.  By contrast, all citizens of Israel have equal voting rights.  Arabs have eleven representatives in Israel’s Knesset, including an Arab on the Israeli Supreme Court.  Every citizen must carry an identity card, along with all legal residents. 

In addition, non-white South Africans were kept from a wide range of jobs.  They had no free elementary through high school education; mixed sexual relationships were restricted and segregated; hospital and ambulance services were segregated; they could not use most public amenities; sports were segregated; and public facilities were labeled for correct racial usage.  Non-whites could not enter a building through the main entrance, be a member of a union, or participate in a strike.  That is apartheid, and Israel is not an apartheid state.

Although many pro-Palestinian organizations are aware that the Israel-apartheid analogy is inaccurate, this rhetoric is continually used to condemn and isolate Israel.  Just visit Israel to see the truth…Israeli Arabs shopping at Jerusalem’s Mamila Mall, enjoying Tel Aviv beaches, enrolled in the universities, getting hospital care, going on school trips to the zoos, and having free access to public places.

One of the more outspoken defenders of Israel is Benjamin Pogrund, a Jew born in Cape Town, now living in Israel.  Pogrund lived under apartheid, and as an anti-apartheid activist, he took grave risks by reporting the injustices against blacks.  He often comments that the comparison of Israel to South African apartheid “greatly minimizes the oppression and misery caused by apartheid and is debasing to its victims.”

In his rebuttal, Pogrund argues that “Israel is not unique in declaring itself a state for a specific people.”

Everyone knows that Egypt is for Egyptians, Ireland is for Irishmen, France for Frenchmen, Italy is for Italians, Serbia for Serbs, China for the Chinese, Iran for the Persians…and the list goes on.

“Apartheid”-supporters substantiate their stance by claiming that Israel discriminates against Israeli Arabs by barring them from buying land.

The facts regarding land ownership are clarified by Mitchell Bard, the executive director of the non-profit American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE) and a foreign policy analyst who frequently lectures on U.S.-ME policy:

In the early part of the century, the Jewish National Fund was established by the World Zionist Congress to purchase land in Palestine for Jewish settlement. This land, and that acquired after Israel’s War of Independence, was taken over by the government. Of the total area of Israel, 92% belongs to the State and is managed by the Land Management Authority. It is not for sale to anyone, Jew or Arab. The remaining 8% of the territory is privately owned. The Arab Waqf (the Muslim charitable endowment), for example, owns land that is for the express use and benefit of Muslim Arabs. Government land can be leased by anyone, regardless of race, religion or sex. All Arab citizens of Israel are eligible to lease government land.

The reality is that both Arabs and Jews build homes illegally throughout Israel.  And the fact is that the number of illegal Arab homes scheduled for demolition is miniscule compared to Jewish homes that must adhere scrupulously to the rules for fear of condemnation.  (Please check Bard’s point-by-point rebuttal.)

The problems in Israel’s Arab communities are much like conditions others face in various places in the world, but Arabs don’t point a finger at those places.  Only Israel is labeled and attacked as “apartheid.”  Arabs need only to look at their neighboring countries in the Middle East to find real apartheid.  Does anyone honestly believe that Muslim women do not suffer from apartheid in countries with sharia law?  Or that Christians and Jews in some Arab nations are being attacked and killed purely because of their religion?  More pointedly, both Jordan and Saudi Arabia do not allow Jews to live there, and Saudi Arabia doesn’t even let Jews visit.

There are many “no-class” citizens in the world that Arabs don’t care to talk about.  One must believe that Abbas just doesn’t recognize “apartheid” as he declares that the State of Palestine will be “Judenrein” — a Jewish-free state.  Instead, the label of “apartheid” is stuck on Israel, keeping eyes focused away from the intolerance and bigotry that the PLO and Hamas preach.

Recently, I took issue with “Students for Justice in Palestine” (SJP), an on-campus pro-Palestinian organization that orchestrated the first National Anti-Israel Conference at Columbia University to “educate” students for participation in “Israel Apartheid Week 2012” on university campuses.

The SJP supports the Apartheid Movement, the Gaza Freedom Movement that tried to break the Israeli-Egyptian blockade, the BDS movement against Israeli goods, and a One-State Solution with the “Right of Return.”  There can be no doubt that SJP, hiding behind the veil of human rights activism, supports the end of a Jewish state while “freedom-fighting” terrorists try to accomplish the same goal through violence.

One question needs to be asked of all those who accuse Israel of being an apartheid state: if Israel gave up all the land rights, forfeited all of the natural resources, and agreed to a One-State Solution with the “Right of Return,” would the Jews be able to live in peaceful coexistence with their Arab neighbors?  The answer to this question determines the fate of the Jewish people and whether peace is ever attainable.

‘Arab Spring’: The chilly cruel winter reality of Arab racism and Islamic bigotry

October 23, 2011

‘Arab Spring’: The chilly cruel winter reality of Arab racism and Islamic bigotry

Not that ethnic racism and religious bigotry weren’t rampant before the so-called “Arab spring” sprung about. But the intolerance tide seems to be only worsening, and without an Arab dictator to “hold” various factions together, vulnerability expand, risks rise.

RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY:

As the D.B. puts it: “Violence Against Egypt’s Copts in an Intolerant Arab Spring.. The elephant in the room of the Arab Spring is now the mistreatment of minority communities—Christians and others—across the Arab world.”

FPM asks: Hillary Clinton Promises to Save Egypt’s Christians? … the guise of the “Arab spring” and “people-power,” all hailed and supported by the U.S.—worked for religious minorities in the Arab world?

In Feb. Diana West wrote: “Islamic bigotry kept under wraps in Egyptian uprising.” Especially at the brutalization and racist rape by Arab Muslim mob in Egypt of CBS journalist L. Logan (thinking she was Jewish) and the MSM silencing the story.

In May, the New York Times reported on the growing Islamic anti-Christian attacks: “Egypt’s Christians Fear Violence as Changes Embolden Islamists.” That “Coptic Christians, many of whom have felt less secure since Egypt’s dictator stepped down, held a sit-in May 19 in Cairo.”

Explaining: The revolution has empowered the majority but also opened new questions about the protection of minority rights like freedom of religion or expression as Islamist groups step forward to lay out their agendas and test their political might.

Adding:
Around the region, Christians are also closely watching events in Syria, where as in Egypt Christians and other minorities received the protection of a secular dictator, Bashar al-Assad, now facing his own popular uprising.

Z. Baumann, in a June article, asks about Christians: “Arab Spring’s losers of revolution?”

Christian Persecution monitor (Aug.) “Common Fear, Opposing Reactions Define Differences between Christians in Egypt and Syria.”
Later on, in that month:
Egyptian Islamic Jihad Official: If We Come To Power We Will Launch Islamic Conquest To Instate Sharia and “Exterminate” Christians If They Cause Problems.

The Copts Association and Christian of Iraq said (Sep.) The Arab Spring and Christian Persecution… Throughout the region, Christians have been targeted by Muslim mobs … that the Arab Spring is posing a threat to Christian minorities throughout the Middle East.

As the Arab Islamic mob (Sep.) attacked the Israeli embassy in Cairo, they were justifiably described by a Western journalist. “They Were Animals.” Still think, the Arab-Israeli conflict is about “land…?”

ETHNIC RACISM

Introduction:
From a 2006 article in The Guardian: “The race taboo,”: The existence of racist attitudes within Arab countries is often denied, resulting in scandalous displays of prejudice against certain ethnic groups. The Arab countries, mostly are in denial. The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha’is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo.
If the existence of non-Arab or non-Muslim groups is acknowledged at all, it is usually only to declare how wonderfully everyone gets along.

In April this year, indingenous group who suffer discrimination: Tunisia’s Berbers test the limits of country’s newfound freedoms

Probably most noted group of non-Arabs to suffer from Arab racism are blacks.

Already in March, Rebels execute black immigrants while forces kidnap others… Therefore the Arab racism of Libyan rebels constitute crimes against humanity.

From NER, March 10 “Arab Racism On Display In Libya.”

From a Mar 5, 2011 “Black Africans Caught in Libyan Arab Racism” That Libyan rebels, overwhelmingly racist and anti-African…

The New York Times reported in September: “Libyans Turn Wrath on Dark-Skinned Migrants,” That As rebel leaders pleaded with their fighters to avoid taking revenge against “brother Libyans,” many rebels were turning their wrath against migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, imprisoning hundreds for the crime of fighting as “mercenaries” for Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi without any evidence except the color of their skin.
Explaining the scapefoating of black: Still, in a country with a long history of racist violence, it has become an article of faith among supporters of the Libyan rebels that African mercenaries pervaded the loyalists’ ranks. And since Colonel Qaddafi’s fall from power, the hunting down of people suspected of being mercenaries has become a major preoccupation.

Even the Arab-based Arab-biased al-Jazeera reported testimonies of “how race-based discrimination and violence, long an issue in Libya, had been inflamed by the war.”

From the HuffingtonPost, September “The Great Taboo: Arab Racism,” With the liberation of Libya come less happy reports from Amnesty and Physicians for Human Rights of rebels slaughtering scores of black Africans, believing they were all pro-Gaddafi mercenaries. While the dictator did hire some fighters from sub-Saharan Africa, the vast majority of black Africans in Libya are entirely innocent immigrants, one million of whom are guest workers.

Tarek Fatah (October) on “The future of the Arab Spring”

I’m very pessimistic about the Arab world… I think there will be far more chaos than Obama can manage. There’s nothing there. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamists have billions of dollars. The jean-clad, western secularists have to worry about their girlfriends, and their New York Yankee hats and every silly stuff, and Twitter and Facebook. While the real world is moving on.

‘Arab Spring’: The chilly cruel winter reality of Arab racism and Islamic bigotry

Not that ethnic racism and religious bigotry weren’t rampant before the so-called “Arab spring” sprung about. But the intolerance tide seems to be only worsening, and without an Arab dictator to “hold” various factions together, vulnerability expand, risks rise.

RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY:

As the D.B. puts it: “Violence Against Egypt’s Copts in an Intolerant Arab Spring.. The elephant in the room of the Arab Spring is now the mistreatment of minority communities—Christians and others—across the Arab world.”

FPM asks: Hillary Clinton Promises to Save Egypt’s Christians? … the guise of the “Arab spring” and “people-power,” all hailed and supported by the U.S.—worked for religious minorities in the Arab world?

In Feb. Diana West wrote: “Islamic bigotry kept under wraps in Egyptian uprising.” Especially at the brutalization and racist rape by Arab Muslim mob in Egypt of CBS journalist L. Logan (thinking she was Jewish) and the MSM silencing the story.

In May, the New York Times reported on the growing Islamic anti-Christian attacks: “Egypt’s Christians Fear Violence as Changes Embolden Islamists.” That “Coptic Christians, many of whom have felt less secure since Egypt’s dictator stepped down, held a sit-in May 19 in Cairo.”

Explaining: The revolution has empowered the majority but also opened new questions about the protection of minority rights like freedom of religion or expression as Islamist groups step forward to lay out their agendas and test their political might.

Adding:
Around the region, Christians are also closely watching events in Syria, where as in Egypt Christians and other minorities received the protection of a secular dictator, Bashar al-Assad, now facing his own popular uprising.

Z. Baumann, in a June article, asks about Christians: “Arab Spring’s losers of revolution?”

Christian Persecution monitor (Aug.) “Common Fear, Opposing Reactions Define Differences between Christians in Egypt and Syria.”
Later on, in that month:
Egyptian Islamic Jihad Official: If We Come To Power We Will Launch Islamic Conquest To Instate Sharia and “Exterminate” Christians If They Cause Problems.

The Copts Association and Christian of Iraq said (Sep.) The Arab Spring and Christian Persecution… Throughout the region, Christians have been targeted by Muslim mobs … that the Arab Spring is posing a threat to Christian minorities throughout the Middle East.

As the Arab Islamic mob (Sep.) attacked the Israeli embassy in Cairo, they were justifiably described by a Western journalist. “They Were Animals.” Still think, the Arab-Israeli conflict is about “land…?”

ETHNIC RACISM

Introduction:
From a 2006 article in The Guardian: “The race taboo,”: The existence of racist attitudes within Arab countries is often denied, resulting in scandalous displays of prejudice against certain ethnic groups. The Arab countries, mostly are in denial. The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha’is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo.
If the existence of non-Arab or non-Muslim groups is acknowledged at all, it is usually only to declare how wonderfully everyone gets along.

In April this year, indingenous group who suffer discrimination: Tunisia’s Berbers test the limits of country’s newfound freedoms

Probably most noted group of non-Arabs to suffer from Arab racism are blacks.

Already in March, Rebels execute black immigrants while forces kidnap others… Therefore the Arab racism of Libyan rebels constitute crimes against humanity.

From NER, March 10 “Arab Racism On Display In Libya.”

From a Mar 5, 2011 “Black Africans Caught in Libyan Arab Racism” That Libyan rebels, overwhelmingly racist and anti-African…

The New York Times reported in September: “Libyans Turn Wrath on Dark-Skinned Migrants,” That As rebel leaders pleaded with their fighters to avoid taking revenge against “brother Libyans,” many rebels were turning their wrath against migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, imprisoning hundreds for the crime of fighting as “mercenaries” for Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi without any evidence except the color of their skin.
Explaining the scapefoating of black: Still, in a country with a long history of racist violence, it has become an article of faith among supporters of the Libyan rebels that African mercenaries pervaded the loyalists’ ranks. And since Colonel Qaddafi’s fall from power, the hunting down of people suspected of being mercenaries has become a major preoccupation.

Even the Arab-based Arab-biased al-Jazeera reported testimonies of “how race-based discrimination and violence, long an issue in Libya, had been inflamed by the war.”

From the HuffingtonPost, September “The Great Taboo: Arab Racism,” With the liberation of Libya come less happy reports from Amnesty and Physicians for Human Rights of rebels slaughtering scores of black Africans, believing they were all pro-Gaddafi mercenaries. While the dictator did hire some fighters from sub-Saharan Africa, the vast majority of black Africans in Libya are entirely innocent immigrants, one million of whom are guest workers.

Tarek Fatah (October) on “The future of the Arab Spring”

I’m very pessimistic about the Arab world… I think there will be far more chaos than Obama can manage. There’s nothing there. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamists have billions of dollars. The jean-clad, western secularists have to worry about their girlfriends, and their New York Yankee hats and every silly stuff, and Twitter and Facebook. While the real world is moving on. All these guys will come back to New York, and Boston, and Toronto and say, ‘Oh, we went there for sabbatical and had fun in Cairo.’ While the Muslim Brotherhood is deeply entrenched.

Arab Spring Gusher‎ / The Arab apartheid system is exposing itself

June 29, 2011

Arab Spring Gusher‎
Northumberland Today – Wally Keeler – [June 28, 2011]

Arabs take to the streets in the hundreds of thousands. They have suffered suppression, oppression, repression, for generations of family dictatorships. Security forces machine-gun the ‘flowering popular movement.’ Tanks and howitzers shell the residences of the ‘flowering popular movement.’ Mourners are gunned down, children are tortured and murdered, dissidents decapitated or mutilated. Women are gang raped. Refugees by the thousands flee. Tens of thousands are homeless. Islamist buzzards circle over the political chaos. The Arab apartheid system is exposing itself.

Face the facts – Syria is an apartheid state / Arab-Islamic apartheid

Face the facts – Syria is an apartheid state

The west is conniving in Bashar Assad’s brutal suppression of opposition

Nick Cohen The Observer, Sunday 19 June 2011

The UN will never tell you this, but Syria is an apartheid-style state. Members of Assad’s Alawite sect make up only 14% of the population, but they control government, much of business and all the forces of coercion. Even the underworld is segregated on confessional lines. The shabbiha crime gangs that run the prostitution and smuggling rackets, and whose members the Assads are letting loose on the civilian population, are Alawite mafias.

I hope that liberals of my generation who beat their chests as they protested against racial apartheid in southern Africa will soon feel as outraged by religious apartheid in the Middle East. The Syrian opposition has as much right to our support as the African National Congress did because it has not targeted Alawites because of their religion. Indeed, it places its hopes on the Alawite-led army mutinying.

Whither Palestine?‎

Whither Palestine?‎
International Analyst Network
Whither Palestine?
Dr. Daniel M. Zucker
18 Jun 2011
Obama’s announcement that the questions of Jerusalem and refugees would be deferred to a

later stage, following the successful conclusion of an agreement on borders and
security is a total non-starter from the Israeli viewpoint. It permits the
Palestinians to continue the conflict after having their territory legally
defined as “occupied”, or forcing Israel to retreat to the indefensible borders
of 1967 without even ending the conflict! No sane Israeli government can agree
to such a position. So too, roughly three out of four Israelis refuse to see
Jerusalem divided again. The nineteen years of Arab rule of East Jerusalem
[1948-1967] and the attendant desecration of synagogues and Jewish cemeteries as
well as the inaccessibility of Jewish holy sites during that period has taught
Israelis to seriously distrust promises on that score. Mahmoud Abbas’ recent
statement that no Israelis would be permitted to stay on Palestinian land proves
that not much has changed in the Palestinian view of the relationship. It’s
Palestine that would be a racist, apartheid state, not Israel which has a 20%
Arab citizenship and Arab Members of the Knesset, as well as Arab members of the
cabinet.

Syria remains dangerous regime
Posted on Friday, 06.10.11
BY FRIDA GHITIS
The Syrian people have good reason to feel let down by those around the world who claim to believe passionately in human rights and democracy. The international community has shown misguided restraint in condemning Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s slaughter of his own people. In trying to prove he should be allowed to stay in power, Assad has shown exactly the opposite.
[…]
This is not just about Assad. Syrian demonstrators have been chanting “No to Assad,” but also “No to Iran, No to Hezbollah!” The protests threaten the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah-Hamas bloc. There is much at stake here not just for the regime in Damascus but for the entire region. Syria and Iran have kept Hamas and Hezbollah stockpiled with weapons. Without Damascus, the structure would wobble; perhaps fall.


The lesson from the border protests is that Assad leads an exceedingly dangerous regime. If his brutality against the Syrian people was not enough, his willingness to trigger another regional war — with the support of his allies in Tehran, Beirut and Gaza — should convince the international community to impose stern sanctions, and work for his removal.

Syria: Where Massacre Is a Family Tradition
[June 13, 2011]
The mask of the Assad regime finally falls, and the world is forced to confront its illusions about Iran’s ally and Hezbollah’s patron.
By FOUAD AJAMI
Pity the Syrians as they face the Assad regime’s tanks and artillery and snipers. Unlike in Libya, there is no Arab or international “mandate” to protect them. Grant Syria’s rulers their due: Their country rides with the Iranian theocracy and provides it access to the Mediterranean. It is a patron of Hamas and Hezbollah. And still they managed to sell the outside world on the legend of their moderation.

A new Hama on the Turkish border Asia Times Online
By Victor Kotsev
June 15, 2011
TEL AVIV – In 1982, on orders by current Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s father, Hafez, the Syrian army destroyed much of the city of Hama and killed somewhere between 10,000 and 40,000 people. The memory of that Muslim Brotherhood uprising and the government massacre is so strong in Syria that arguably it was a crucial factor in rekindling the current unrest after some 70 demonstrators were killed in Hama 10 days ago.


Now, the town of Jisr al-Shoughour seems set on becoming the new Hama – “a” new Hama, if we believe much of what is being written and said about the situation in Syria, with other cities to follow. It does not mean that the comparison is realistic – all other discrepancies aside, the town with its approximately 50,000 inhabitants is no comparison to Hama, the fourth-largest city in Syria – but then again, leading Western ethicists of the past few decades have taught us not to compare numbers of victims.

Sky News: Clinton accuses Iran of backing Syria
Updated: 03:32, Wednesday June 15, 2011
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday accused Iran of backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s ‘vicious assaults’ on pro-democracy protesters after crushing its own 2009 uprising.
‘Iran is supporting the Assad regime’s vicious assaults on peaceful protesters and military actions against its own cities,’ Clinton said, comparing its response to Iran’s crackdown on pro-reform demonstrations.
‘Two years ago this week, Iranian citizens went to the polls in the hopes of expressing their democratic rights,’ she said.
‘When the people reached for their aspirations, the government responded with brutal repression. Two years later, that repression continues.’
Syria’s uprising was triggered in mid-March by the arrest and torture of 15 children and adolescents accused of spraying anti-regime graffiti in the southern town of Daraa, which then became the epicentre of the revolt.
The UN children’s agency UNICEF has since said that at least 30 children have been shot dead in the revolt against the Assad family’s 40-year rule…

Hours earlier, Iran warned the United States, “Americans are not allowed to launch a military intervention in any country of the region, including Syria.”
