Anti-European, anti-American Arab Jihad, 1947, “Palestine”

October 24, 2012

Anti-European, anti-American JIHAD in 1947 (Sep. 27 & October 12/13

First, the Swedish Consulate was attacked in Sep. Then the Polish Consulate on Oct. 12 as well as the US Consulate General in Jerusalem was bombed shortly after.
All perpetrated by Islamic-Arabs’ underground ‘JIHAD’, as a “holy war” against Europeans and Americans (Western powers) and against Jews.

[p. 147]

The partition of Palestine, as proposed to the United Nations, satisfies minimum Zionist demands, but will be bitterly resisted by the Arabs.
Its adoption and implementation would precipitate Arab armed resistance possibly assuming the proportions of a Holy War against Europeans and Americans as well as Jews. The Arab governments could not control this popular reaction; they would be coerced by it, supplanted by governments responsive to the popular will. [pp. 154-5]
At the conference of the Political Committee of the Arab League in October 1947 it is significant that the Mufti, as Chairman of the Arab Higher Committee. played a leading role. Although the Arab Higher Committee and the Arab League. have differed as to the advisability of testifying before UNSCOP, the members of the League are in complete accord over the injustice of partition to the Palestinian Arabs…

(2) Religious Pressure.

The Arab governments are probably as greatly influenced by religious pressures as they are by nationalist pressures. The Arabs are capable of areligious fanaticism which when coupled with political aspirations is an extremely powerful force. Whether or not the Arab governments are capable of guiding this force is difficult to judge. It is very possible that certain religious organizations will take the initiative in organizing Arab resistance in Palestine. 

The Ikhwan al Muslimin (Moslem Brotherhood), with headquarters in Egypt, is an organization of young Moslems founded for the purpose of orienting Arab society in accordance with Islamic ideologies. Branches of the Ikhwan have been formed in Syria and Lebanon, and one of the most active branches is in Palestine. The Ikhwan regards Westernization as a dangerous threat to Islam and would oppose any political encroachment of Zionism on Palestine with religious fanaticism. Should a “Jihad,” or Holy War, be declared, the Ikhwan would be the Spearhead of any “crusade.” 
The Grand Mufti, as head of the Moslem Supreme Council, can count on the unanimous support of all members of the Ikhwan, who are assured of entrance into Paradise if they die on the ñeld of battle

(3) Tribal Pressure. 

The tribes of the Arab countries are a powerful element in the political and military pattern of the Middle East. The tribe is a group of related families under the leadership of a chief (sheikh) which may be joined in a confederacy with other tribes under a paramount sheikh The economic basis of tribal life is pastoral nomadism involving periodic migrations to seek pasturage for camels, sheep, and horses. The nomad (Beduin) population of Iraq, Syria, Transjordan, and Saudi Arabia has been estimated at 2,500,000. 

The conditions of Beduin life have developed a hardy type of fighting man, not only imbued with a warilke tradition (,FONT COLOR=RED>combining religious fanaticism with an enthusiastic devotion to looting, plundering, and raiding) but also trained in the use of small arms and the methods of desert warfare. 

Large stipends have been paid annually to the tribes of the Near East by whatever power wished to have their support, whether that power was British, French, or the local Arab government. Since the Arab governments now pay the stipends, they could rely on the tribes within their regions. The tribes would doubtless join the crusade, not only for reasons of Arab patriotism but also for plunder, the assurance of additional stipends, and the thrill of battle. The Syrian Defense Minister stated on 9 October that as the Arabs marched into Palestine they “would be buttressed by 100,000 1oot­seeking Beduin described as ‘mine fodder’.” 

The dramatic meeting of 500 Kurdish and Arab tribal sheikhs at Hílla in Iraq in October passed a resolution for a Holy War to defend Palestine. Although Prime Minister Saleh Jabr took the initiative in organizing this meeting, it is significant that the Arab and Kurdish leaders (many of whom are hostile to each other) consented to meet and to agree to a common program.

[p. 158]
The Bludan Conference of 1946 established a course of procedure* to be followed by the Arab states in the event that the recommendations of the Anglo-American Committee should be implemented.
Following the publication of the UNSCOP report and the speech of Secretary Marshall before UNGA, the Arab League Political Committee met and decided in general terms to apply the Bludan recommendations if partition were voted by the UN.
However, in the discussions on the manner in which these recommendations should be applied, there was considerable disagreement in the Political Committee. Some of the Arab governments refused to consider a break in diplomatic relations with the Western powers, and others refused to cancel oil concessions. Nevertheless, there is complete unanimity among the Arab states as regards aim.
They are all unalterably opposed to the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. Whether or not they now agree on retaliatory measures against the US is beside the point; in time US interests will be seriously affected, if not by the decisions of the Arab governments, certainly by instability and hostility which will inevitably be aroused in the Arab world.
The bombing of the American Consulate General in Jerusalem on 13 October is evidence of the Arab resentment against US support of the majority plan.  This action was reported to have been taken by the newly formed Arab terrorist group which calls itself “the Jihad.” Whatever the official position of the Arab governments may be, the attacks on US property, installations, and personell by irresponsible groups or…

PALESTINE AS PRESENTED TO MIDDLE AMERICA IN OCTOBER 1947
[…]
ARABS QUICK TO RETALIATE FOR U.S. DECISION

JERUSALEM, Oct 13.-(UP)
A bomb exploded in the compound of the United States consulate in Jerusalem today, slightly injuring two employees, and police blamed it on the Arab underground organization, Jihad.

As the bomb exploded, more than 2,000 Arabs of the Syrian-Lebanese armies, including armored units, were reported to be maneuvering along the northern border of Palestine.  The Jewish defense army Hagana alerted its men as far south as the center of Palestine.

Police suspected the Jihad bombed the U.S. consulate in reprisal for the United States announcment of its support on Saturday of a proposal before the United Nations to partition Palestine into Arab and Jewish states.

It was the third consulate bombing blamed on the Jihad.  Besides the Polish and U.S. consulates, the Swedish consulate also has been bombed.  A Swede was chairman of the committee that recommended Palestine’s partition in a majority report.

A few windows also were broken in the U.S consulate and the consul-general’s dining room was slightly damaged.  The two injured employees were cut by pieces of flying glass.

The guard around the U.S. consulate had been reinforced recently and police said they did not understand how the bombers got through.  They suspected, however, that the Arabs entered the compound of the consulate over Julian’s Way, a road which runs behind the building.

The bomb went off about 10 feet from the entrance to the consulate.  The circumstances were almsost identical with those in the bombing of the Polish consulate.

The Syrian-Lebanese forces, part of the seven-nation Arab army the Arab League had threatened to throw against the Jews, were so close to the frontier that Palestinians could see their campfires twinkling across the desert all night.  A United Press correspondant at one border town saw ground forces maneuvering.

Although the Hagana, which claims to have a total of 75,000 Jews enrolled, alerted its followers, it evidently was not deeply impressed.

Official Syrian and Lebanese sources said Friday that those nations had sent a total of 25,000 troops to the northern frontier.  There were no reports from anywhere in Palestine today that more than one-tenth of that number were up to the frontier.

The Jewish Irgun Zvai Leumi, which reportedly has 10,000 men, announced that it was ready to call off its feud with Hagana and join a common defense army, if Hagana started general recruiting to meet the emergency.

Polish Consulate in Jerusalem Bombed;seen As Arab Reply to Pro-jewish Stand at U.N.
October 13, 1947 
Jerusalem, Oct. 12 (JTA) –
The Polish Consulate here was bombed today in what was thought to be an Arab reply to the pro-Jewish statement made at the U.N. this week by the Polish delegation. The blast caused slight damage and no casualties.

A few minutes later another explosion was heard in the Rehavia quarter. Police said later that a grenade had been thrown at an armored patrol car. Armed guards are stationed around the U.S. Consulate, which is a logical target for attacks. The Swedish Consulate was bomed earlier this month, apparently in retaliation for the fact that Judge Emil Sandstroem was chairman of UNSCOP.

Meanwhile, leaders of the Jewish community, who have been heartened by the U.S. position, were engaged this week-end in working out a wind-up statement at the U.N. and in girding for internal defense. The Agency met today to discuss both these questions, but no statement was issued.

The Jewish National Council again called on the Yishuv to be ready to meet any possible disorders, at the same time that it appealed to the Arabs for peace. The secretariats of the Palestine Labor Party and the Histadruth also issued “mobilization orders.” The Labor Party held a special conference to map new security precautions and to discuss the steps that will have to be taken prior to Britain’s withdrawal.

Persistent reports from the Arab League council meeting in Lebanon that a provisional government for Palestine had been set up, composed mainly of members of the Palestine Arab Higher Executive, said that its composition would be announced within a few days. The reports say the “government” has already appointed district commanders to take over when the British leave.

It is learned, meanwhile, that two British battalions in Galilee will soon be withdrawn, one to Affuleh, the other to Tiberias, which are now garrisoned by units of the Arab Legion.

Since there have been clashes between settlers in Galilee and legionnaires, the Haganah has reinforced its security provisions in Galilee. However, a Haganah source insisted today that these steps were not taken with a view to meeting a possible border attack, because it is believed accounts of Arab troops from Syria, Lebanon and Egypt moving against Palestine are exaggerated out of all proportion to the facts, although reports tonight said that some Syrian units had arrived on Palestine’s northern border.

(A Foreign Office spokesman declared yesterday in London that if a threat of war developed in Palestine, Britain might consider placing the matter before the United Nations, but added that no such threat had developed. Asked whether, in the event of an armed conflict, Britain would halt the delivery of arms to Iraq, Egypt and Transjordan under the treaties of alliance made with these states, the spokesman replied Britain might consider that possibility.)

U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem Bombed; Two Employees Injured, Damage to Property Slight
October 14, 1947 
Jerusalem, Oct. 13 (JTA) – The United States consulate in Jerusalem was bombed today in what was thought to be an Arab reply to the pro-partition statement made at Lake Success on Saturday by U.S. delegate Herschel Johnson. 

The blast slightly injured two mail-room employees–Ethel Delevi of Boston and Miriam Pilpel, a Palestinian–and damaged a car in the consulate courtyard. A door leading from the courtyard was blown in and the hallway littered with plaster. 

When the explosion occurred, Consul Robert MacAtee was conferring with the High Commissioner on measures to safeguard the consulate. He rushed from Government House to the scene of the blast. Later, he met with high police officers to plan further security precautions. An armed guard has been stationed around the consulate for the past few days. 

An official visit to Baghdad by a Congressional sub-committee has been cancelled as a result of the Iraq Government’s displeasure at the stand taken by the U.S. delegate on the UNSCOP report, according to dispatches reaching here from that capital. Receptions by the government and the U.S. Embassy had been scheduled.

Sex-Scandal in Cartagena, Colombia, radicalization of Arabs in Latin America by Islamic Hezbollah

April 15, 2012

CBS News – April 14, 2012:

Defense service members may be part of Secret Service “misconduct” scandal CBS News has learned that at least one United States Secret Service agent is alleged to have sought the services of a prostitute in Cartagena

ABC News – April 14, 2012:

‘Evidence of Prostitution’ Seen in Secret Service Scandal – ABC News By Pierre Thomas, Jake Tapper, Ann Compton, Reena Ninan Eleven U.S. Secret Service agents and five military service members are under investigation and facing possible reprimand for allegedly cavorting with prostitutes and drinking excessively at a Colombian hotel ahead of President Obama’s visit. A heated argument between at least one of the alleged prostitutes and at least one of the Secret Service agents on Thursday first alerted local authorities to the alleged behavior at the Hotel Caribe in Cartagena, officials told ABC News. […] “Sexual tourism” is reportedly widespread in Cartagena and other coastal cities. PHOTO: Hotel Caribe in Cartagena, Columbia is seen in this…

NYPOST – April 14, 2012 :

Secret Service agents get hook in sex scandal By Josh Saul A lurid scandal has struck the US Secret Service, after a dozen agents responsible for protecting President Obama were sent home from Colombia amid reports of misconduct with prostitutes. A senior law enforcement official said the situation was so serious that diplomats were brought in to mediate and the agency was forced to rush in a new group of agents to cover for those sent home. The agency did not release the number of personnel involved, but a US official put the number of agents at 12. Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Association, said the accusations related to at least one agent having involvement with prostitutes, according to reports.

The double jeopardy in the region – Arab-Islamic nationalism and prostitution

Syrian / Lebanese Arab immigration into the area is more concentrated in ‘Barranquilla, Cartagena, Santa Marta, and Maicao.’ The bordering city with Venezuela – Maicao (Col) market is probably 90% Arab.
 
Though not all Arabs in south America are “political,” and some are not Muslim, yet, the Arab-Islamic Hezbollah growing phenomenon in Latin America -in recent years- certainly sharpened Arab nationalism which is today very militant-Islamic in nature. A 2008 drug probe finds Hezbollah financing link and a 2009 report shows Hezbollah has active cell on Colombia-Venezuela border.
 
So did Chavez’s anti-Americanism, exploiting it, and embedding it into his “anti-Imperialism” sentiments. His pro-Arabism showed such strength that in 2009, a Kuwaiti MP “called to move Arab League to Venezuela.” Stating he “has proved that he was more Arab than some Arabs.” His government’s Justice Minister Tarek El Aissami, who is of Arab descent expelled Israeli ambassador in 2009. Hugo Chavez had illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists

 

Last but not least: Hezbollah has been using prostitution (Muta) for recruitment, especially since the “holy” Islamic Hezbollah’s Militarization of Sex – Hezbollah’s halal hookups

__
 
PS Even if it turns out that Hezbollah is not connected ‘directly’ to the specific prostitution case in the hotel. The extreme ‘dangerous’ area (as detailed above), is enough of a concern.

Muslim Brotherhood’s buddy Tariq Ramadan sees “no” anti-Semitism in Mohamed Merah

March 29, 2012

Muslim Brotherhood’s buddy Tariq Ramadan sees “no” anti-Semitism in Mohamed Merah

Appeaser of the Muslim Brotherhood, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University, Tariq Ramadan sees no anti-semitism in Mohammed Merah.

Tariq, as in having launch with infamous Muslim Brotherhood’s genocidal cleric Youssef Qaradawi, the Islamic leader who called upon the Jews: “kill them, down to the very last one.”

Let’s make it clear, not categorizing the targeting of Jews by Arab-Muslims, whether in Israel/palestine or worldwide as ‘racism,’ and ‘bigotry’ which is what it is, is in and of itself a form of intolerance towards the victims of ethnic Arab racism and religious Islamic bigotry.

The same hateful mentality that denies Israelis’ the victimhood but converts the Arabs, who initiated the conflict/violence since the 1920s’ as “ultimate” victims, despite its routine conversion of its own civilians into use of war, causing their fatalities.

But not everyone shares the Islamic bigot Tariq Ramadan”s Taqyyia (lying to the infidel) piece:

Another racist Arab -inflamed by fakestinian false anti-Israel Pallywood lies- beats Jew to death with hammer (Morocco)

Jew Beaten to Death with Hammer in Morocco Arutz Sheva 26/3/12 Chana Yaar March 26, 2012 An elderly Jewish man was murdered by an unknown attacker with a hammer Monday in the city of Fez. The 74-year-old victim, whose name has not yet been released, worked in property management for rentals owned by other Jews. According to reports in Moroccan media, the elderly victim was seen being hit repeatedly by a man wielding a hammer. […] Critically injured, he died as he was being rushed to King Hassan II University Hospital. Earlier Monday, thousands of demonstrators stormed the parliament building in the capital city of Rabat. The protesters torched Israeli flags and expressed anger at the presence of Israeli envoy David Saranga, who was in the city to attend a meeting of the Euro-Mediterreanean Partnership (EUROMED), in advance of the Global March to Jerusalem set for this Friday, an event scheduled for the Arabs’ annual “Land Day” protest.

“Palestinianism” – a systematic falsehood

That anti-Jewish war, that rages since the (racist Arab and Islamic fanatic) Mufti, al-Husseini began it all in the 1920s, then later on he aided Hitler in extremination of Jews in WW2. His henchman and spokesman Ahmad Shukairy invented in 1961 the “apartheid analogy.” Nevermind that Arabs, Muslims often enjoy more rights than Israeli Jews because of the exemption to serve in the army and preferential-treatment “affirmative action.”

Highest time to expose the fakesness of “Palestinian” false victimhood.

Natives?
Nevermind that Churchil testified in the 1930s that Arab immigration surpassed Jewish immigration in Palestine/Israel.

Victims?
Nevermind that most Arab casualties are a result of Arab-Islamic (Palestinian or Hezbollah) use of civilian population, whereas most Israeli/Jewish victims are of intentionally targted crimes by Arabs, including by Abbas / “moderate” official PA’s Fatah-Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.

Pallywood & its leading massacres:
These inflammatory images are directly linked to inspire the targeting of little Jewish kids whether the Fogel family in their beds, Sderot schoolchildren, or chasing after little kids in Toulouse, all by Arab-Islamic bigots, in the name of Islam.

Some of highlighted mass casualties by (radical) Islam in four decades – 1971-2011

February 19, 2012

Some of highlighted mass casualties by (radical) Islam in four decades – 1971-2011 (updated Feb. 2012)

PS
Most Israeli casualties are innocent non-combatants. Most Arab “Palestinian” casualties are combatants and/or involved in violent attacks. Not to mention Arab-Islamic intentional routine in causing deaths on their side via human shields. Same goes to Hezbollah tactics.
In fact: IDF’s unparalleled record of sparing civilians in counter-terrorism operations.

Of course, that’s besides the last bloody decade of over 18,000 Islamic terror attacks since 9/11/2001.

Note: Baathist racist Arab tyrants like Saddam Hussein, used Islam and ‘anti-infidel’ ideology as well.

Islamists [“Palestinian,” Syrian, Hezbollah] destruction of Lebanon

February 7, 2012

Christians in Lebanon were always oppressed by Muslims, especially by the ‘Palestinians’.

* 1) The DAMOUR MASSACRE which triggered Christians’ payback in Sabra Shatila.
‘The attack took place from the mountain behind. It was an apocalypse. They were coming, thousands and thousands, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar! God is great! Let us attack them for the Arabs, let us offer a holocaust to Mohammad ‘And they were slaughtering everyone in their path, men, women and children.’
More here

Since 1975, about 150,000 Christians were killed during the war… Entire Christian villages were erased and their populations were ethnically cleansed.

Arafat plunged Lebanon into massacres, rape, mutilation, rampages of looting and killings. Out of a population of 3.2 million, some 40,000 or more people had been killed, 100,000 wounded, 5,000 permanently maimed.

In fact: Syria and the Palestinians are responsible for the death of 300,000 Lebanese

That myth-crap of ‘Khazars,’ pushed by R. Islamists and Neo-Nazis alike

January 18, 2012

Ever heard about the ‘Khazar’ myth pushed by the Neo-Nazis/KKK?

In fact, Jews are both a nation and a religion. the percentage of those with any roots in khazaria is so minimal, that there was only one non-historian “writer” that came up with the idea to say that the percentage is higher. As a penpal who is of Jewish background told me once: ‘Before the WW2 Were were told to go BACK to Palestine where we came from… now the same haters don’t even grant us that…’


Hitler VS Khazar myth

Oddly enough, Hitler’s “aryanism” and anti-Jewish sick obession was AGAINST The ‘khazar” myth, of course. But his followers wouldn’t care about consistency. Just as the  crazy inconsistent Nazis themselves preferred long-nosed-Muslim Bosnians over Christian Serbs. Hitler [despite his alliance with fascist Arab-Islamic leadership to exterminate the Jews out of bilnd hatred] refused to drink coffee with the Arab Mufti al-Husseini or shake his hands, Arabs in Germany were subject to the same ‘racial’ treatments as Jews were. Clearly, they liked power and “ideology’ was not the only thing motivating them.


Haters always had the contradictions. You can not “blame” the Jews for (some of them) agreeing with the Romans to kill Jesus and then contradict yourself in saying they are not the same Israelites/Hebrews/Jews… LOL


Luckilly for the recent DNA testing, this myth has (also) been exposed as a LIE.


SPME: Steven Plaut: The Khazar Myth and the New Anti-Semitism –

… Some two hundred websites claim to describe a cabal known as the “Khazarian Zionist Bolsheviks” (KZV). Neo-Nazi and Holocaust denial organizations and websites are particularly fond of the Khazar myth…Arab and Islamist propagandists have long bandied about the “Ashkenazim as Khazars” theory and Iran’s genocidal leaders adore it. Al-Jazeera has been using the Khazar story to urge a worldwide Christian religious war against the Khazar pseudo-Jewish imperialists.

Groups promoting the Protocols of the Elders of Zion often cite the nefarious role of Khazars as “proof” of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy (I counted 700 such websites). And even Jewish anti-Zionist cranks like Alfred M. Lilienthal and the Swedish “Israel Shamir” have used the Khazar myth to attack Zionism.


Why are these various groups suddenly interested in a rather esoteric and archaic group of people in Central Asia that disappeared nearly a millennium ago?


The answer is very simple.


According to the Khazar theory of the new anti-Semites, most Jews today, particularly Ashkenazi Jews, are not racially Jews at all but descendents from the Turkic tribe of Khazars, whose ruling class and parts of its rank and file population converted to Judaism in the 8th or early 9th century CE. Hence, argue the racialists, Ashkenazi Jews have no rights to live in the racially Semitic Middle East and especially not in the Land of Israel.


Fact and Legend


For Jews, the history of the conversion of the Khazars to Judaism is best known from essays in The Kuzari: In Defense of the Despised Faith, a medieval book composed by the great Spanish poet and philosopher Judah Ha-Levi.


Only part of the book actually deals with the Khazar kingdom, about which little was known, and the historic claims about them in the book are not considered fully reliable.


In any case, The Kuzari purports to report the debates at the Khazar royal court that supposedly led to the Khazar elite’s conversion to Judaism. Other senior Jewish officials in the Spanish Muslim regimes actually corresponded with the Khazar kingdom – most notably Cordova Rabbi Hasdai ibn Shaprut (whose letters have survived). And the great Iraqi sage Saadia Gaon is believed to have maintained correspondence with Jews in the Khazar kingdom.


It is commonly thought that part of the motivation for the Khazars’ conversion was to establish political neutrality for the Khazar kingdom, which faced potential threats from the powers of both Christendom and Islam.


The Khazars themselves left no documentary records. The Arab historian ibn Fadlan wrote about them, but he did so two centuries after the conversions to Judaism had occurred. Some Jews, having sought refuge from Byzantine persecutions, probably lived in the Khazar kingdom long before the conversion of the royalty there.


One ironic historical twist is that the Khazars contributed to the Cyrillic alphabet, in which Russian and some other Slavic languages are written. Saint Cyril came to Khazaria in 860 in an attempt to convert the Khazars to Christianity. Since the Hebrew of the Khazars and Greek were the main alphabets known to St. Cyril and the early Slavs, they borrowed from both.


Western interest in the Khazars was stimulated largely by the 1976 book The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler, a writer better known for his lifelong battles against totalitarianism in all its forms. Koestler’s book was largely based on the earlier book The History of the Jewish Khazars, by the historianD.M. Dunlop.


Dunlop rejected the idea that large numbers of Ashkenazi Jews could trace their origins to the Khazars, but not so Koestler. By grossly and sensationally exaggerating the role and numbers of Khazar descendents among European Jewry, Koestler – who was a strong Zionist – inadvertently provided today’s racialist anti-Semites with all the ammunition they could want, and many of them frequently cite his book as the basis for their racialist denunciations of Israel.


A number of more serious books about Khazars are now on the market, including The Jews of Khazaria by Kevin Alan Brook. Rabbi Bernard Rosensweig was one of the leading figures in debunking the Khazar theory of Ashkenazi Jewish origins. Writing in Tradition (16:5, Fall 1977, pages 139-162), he dismissed it as “wobbly scholarly foundations without historical support.”


Likewise, the Swedish archaeologist Bozena Werbart, an expert on the Khazars, wrote: “In the Khazar kingdom, Koestler wanted to see the origin of the eastern European Jewry. Nevertheless, all the historical and linguistic facts contradicted his theories.”


As The Encyclopedia of Judaism (1989) emphatically states, “The notion that Ashkenazi Jewry is descended from the Khazars has absolutely no basis in fact.”


What Became of the Khazars


The actual Khazar kingdom was partly subjugated by the early Russians in the 10th century, and whatever was left was annihilated as a result of the Mongol invasions of Central Asia.


What exactly became of the Khazar Jews is simply not known. Those who retained their Judaism probably integrated themselves into other Jewish communities around the world. Some groups of Khazars joined the Magyar invasion into what became Hungary and may have merged with local Jews already living in those lands; indeed, archeologists have found Jewish stars in the remains of Hungarian Khazar villages.


Small groups of Khazar mercenaries probably found refuge in other places. Most likely the largest integration of Khazar Jews among other Jews took place in Iran and Iraq, the large communities closest to the Khazar kingdom and with whom close ties had been maintained.


(An urban legend holds that red-haired Jews are descended from Khazars, though that could hardly explain King David, not to mention Esau. Arthur Koestler claimed many were blond with blue eyes.)


In any case, Khazar political existence ended a thousand years ago.


So what are we to make of the Khazar myth concerning Ashkenazi Jews and their supposed lack of legitimate claims to Israel due to their Khazar origins? The greatest irony is that even if the entire Khazar theory of Ashkenazi Jews were correct – and virtually none of it is correct – it would be entirely irrelevant. Judaism has never defined Jews on racial grounds. Anyone from any race is welcome as a convert to Judaism as long as he or she is sincere.


The biblical Israelites themselves were already a racial hodgepodge. They absorbed the “mixed multitude” that left Egypt together with them at the time of the Exodus. There are biblical references to Jews of different racial features, including the black-skinned Shulamit mentioned in the Song of Songs.


Jews always defined themselves in religious, ethnic-national and at times linguistic terms, but never along racial lines. If all Ashkenazi Jews were indeed converted Khazars, as the racial anti-Zionists claim, they would be no less legitimately Jews – and, as such, would have the same legitimate claims to the Jewish homeland as any other group of Jews. (Given the traditional Jewish deference to righteous converts, maybe more so.)


Pseudo-History


The actual details of the Khazar theory concerning European Jewry are simply pseudo-history.


Jews already lived in Europe a thousand years before the Khazar kingdom was formed. There are no genetic markers or indicators at all showing that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Turkic tribes. In fact, there exists considerable genetic evidence showing that European Jews are closer to Levantine and Syrian Arabs than to Central Asians.


After the Mongol invasion most Khazars probably assimilated into the Jewish communities of Iran and Iraq, which of course eventually emerged as important Sephardic centers, formed mainly of Jews with Semitic racial characteristics, descended from migrants and exiled Jews from the Land of Israel. In any case, there are more “Semitic” Sephardic Jews in Israel today than there are European Ashkenazi Jews. And if the Khazars looked Turkic, how on earth could they give Ashkenazi Jews a European complexion?


There are other problems. If all Ashkenazi Jews are descended from converted Khazars, why are there Cohens and Levis among them? One inherits the status of a Cohen (priest) or Levite from one’s father. Descendants of converts through the male line can never be a Cohen or a Levite.


And why are there no Khazar surnames among Ashkenazim, or Khazar names for towns in Europe where Jews lived? And why did most Ashkenazi communities speak variations of Yiddish rather than Turkic?


As mentioned, the popularity of the Khazar myth among anti-Semites represents a return of modern anti-Jewish bigotry to the racialism of the 1930’s and earlier.


Nearly every anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi website denounces Zionists and Israelis as “Khazars.” Web chat lists in which Jews defending Israel are dismissed as “Khazar usurpers” are too numerous to count.


The racialism once again in vogue holds that Jews would only have legitimate claims to the right of self-determination in their homeland if they were appropriately Semitic from a racial point of view. Palestine is part of the Semitic racial lebensraum and those who do not possess the correct pure racial markings have no business being there. Racial purity is suddenly the new basis for national rights.


I discovered scores of neo-Nazi websites claiming that “Khazar Zionists” were really behind the 9/11 attacks. I found thousands of websites claiming that “Khazar Jew-pretenders” are in a conspiratorial league with Freemasons, the Vatican, the Illuminati and others to control the world.


Khazar conspiracists go further along these lines by the day; a widely cited Ku Klux Klan website claims that the pro-Israel evangelist Pat Robertson is really a Khazar Jew. The neo-Nazi American Patriots Friends Network claims Khazars are themselves descended from the Magog race and secretly control America.


If we take the racialist argument to its logical conclusion, Palestinian Arabs have the right to exercise all claims to sovereignty in Israel due to their being true racial Jews, while Zionists are non-Jewish Khazars – racial imposters and usurpers.


Arabs themselves are, of course, a mix of racial strains, with a particularly large Caucasian component thanks to Arab intermixing with Spanish and Italian Europeans, Caucasian Berbers, Vandals, Goths, and even some Vikings.


The racialist delegitimizing of Zionism as “Khazar imperialism” is right up there with the “Jesus was a Palestinian” theory and the claim that all real Jews (from a racial point of view) converted to Islam after the Arab conquest of Palestine in the 7th century and so became Palestinian Arabs. One can also find countless websites claiming those things.



Afterword:


This week I published an article on how Neo-Nazis, Palestinian terrorists, and leftist anti-Semites are obsessed with the “Khazar Myth”, holding that all Ashkenazi Jews are descendent from Khazar converts to Judaism over a millennium ago. It is a way to delegitimze Israel and Jews:

It is one of the great ironies of the 21st century that anti-Zionists and anti-Semites on both the Left and the Right, have returned to racialist arguments against Jews that most of us thought had died out after World War II. Nearly every anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi website denounces Zionists and Israelis as “Khazars.” Web chat lists in which Jews defending Israel are dismissed as “Khazar usurpers” are too numerous to count. The racialism once again in vogue holds that Jews would only have legitimate claims to the right of self-determination in their homeland if they were appropriately Semitic from a racial point of view. Palestine is part of the Semitic racial lebensraum and those who do not possess the correct pure racial markings have no business being there. Racial purity is suddenly the new basis for national rights.


The “Institute for Historic Review” is a Holocaust Denial Neo-Nazi web site. Here it behaves as a wonderful member of the Axis of Evil, Nazis allied with Arab terrorists, banning together to promote the Khazar Myth:
Furthermore, the Jews of Ashkenazi extraction are descendants of the Khazars, a people of Turkish stock, who occupied an area between the Black and Caspian Seas, a territory now a part of the Soviet Union. The Khazars, originally pagans, had in 740 A.D. embraced Judaism and their descendants, while they may profess the Jewish faith today, cannot claim to be of the “seed of Abraham” and “heirs according to the Promise.” The ancestors of those Jews who today immigrate to Palestine from Europe and the Americas and claim Palestine and beyond as their ancestral homeland, came not from Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, and that genetically, they are more closely related to the Hun and Magyar than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Besides, religion does not confer heritage or property rights on people!


Finally, a Neo-Nazi “blogger” named Kurt Nimmo, who is an unemployed New Mexico conspiracty “theorist”, a devotee of Holocaust Denier David Irving, and a regular on the Uruknet web site of exiled Iraqi Baathists, has called ME a Khazar: He wrote: Plaut and his Ashkenazic buddies are actually descended from the Turkic Khazars in eastern Europe, although they like to pretend they are direct descendants of the ancient Hebrews, a Semitic people closer to the Palestinians than Plaut would ever admit. Plaut and his poseur settler friends are a far cry from the ancient Assyrians, Babylonians, Chaldeans, Arameans, Hebrews, and Arabs. They are more akin to English colonists attacking Pequot villages and killing innocent men, women, and children than I will ever be.

Jewish and Middle Eastern non-Jewish populations share a common pool of Y-chromosome biallelic haplotypes

Despite their long-term residence in different countries and isolation from one another, most Jewish populations were not significantly different from one another at the genetic level… The results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora.

Y Chromosome Bears Witness to Story of the Jewish Diaspora
By NICHOLAS WADE
Published: May 9, 2000


With a new technique based on the male or Y chromosome, biologists have traced the diaspora of Jewish populations from the dispersals that began in 586 B.C. to the modern communities of Europe and the Middle East.


The analysis provides genetic witness that these communities have, to a remarkable extent, retained their biological identity separate from their host populations, evidence of relatively little intermarriage or conversion into Judaism over the centuries.


Another finding, paradoxical but unsurprising, is that by the yardstick of the Y chromosome, the world’s Jewish communities closely resemble not only each other but also Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese, suggesting that all are descended from a common ancestral population that inhabited the Middle East some four thousand years ago.


Dr. Lawrence H. Schiffman, chairman of the department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University, said the study fit with historical evidence that Jews originated in the Near East and with biblical evidence suggesting that there were a variety of families and types in the original population.


He said the finding would cause ”a lot of discussion of the relationship of scientific evidence to the manner in which we evaluate long-held academic and personal religious positions,” like the question of who is a Jew.


The study, reported in today’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was conducted by Dr. Michael F. Hammer of the University of Arizona with colleagues in the United States, Italy, Israel, England and South Africa. The results accord with Jewish history and tradition and refute theories like those holding that Jewish communities consist mostly of converts from other faiths, or that they are descended from the Khazars, a medieval Turkish tribe that adopted Judaism.


The analysis by Dr. Hammer and colleagues is based on the Y chromosome, which is passed unchanged from father to son. Early in human evolution, all but one of the Y chromosomes were lost as their owners had no children or only daughters, so that all Y chromosomes today are descended from that of a single genetic Adam who is estimated to have lived about 140,000 years ago…

Abraham’s children in the genome era: major Jewish diaspora populations comprise distinct genetic clusters with shared Middle Eastern Ancestry.


G Atzmon, L Hao, I Pe’er, C Velez, A Pearlman, PF Palamara, B Morrow, E Friedman, C Oddoux, E Burns, H Ostrer


For more than a century, Jews and non-Jews alike have tried to define the relatedness of contemporary Jewish people. Previous genetic studies of blood group and serum markers suggested that Jewish groups had Middle Eastern origin with greater genetic similarity between paired Jewish populations. However, these and successor studies of monoallelic Y chromosomal and mitochondrial genetic markers did not resolve the issues of within and between-group Jewish genetic identity. Here, genome-wide analysis of seven Jewish groups (Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, Italian, Turkish, Greek, and Ashkenazi) and comparison with non-Jewish groups demonstrated distinctive Jewish population clusters, each with shared Middle Eastern ancestry, proximity to contemporary Middle Eastern populations, and variable degrees of European and North African admixture. Two major groups were identified by principal component, phylogenetic, and identity by descent (IBD) analysis: Middle Eastern Jews and European/Syrian Jews. The IBD segment sharing and the proximity of European Jews to each other and to southern European populations suggested similar origins for European Jewry and refuted large-scale genetic contributions of Central and Eastern European and Slavic populations to the formation of Ashkenazi Jewry. Rapid decay of IBD in Ashkenazi Jewish genomes was consistent with a severe bottleneck followed by large expansion, such as occurred with the so-called demographic miracle of population expansion from 50,000 people at the beginning of the 15th century to 5,000,000 people at the beginning of the 19th century. Thus, this study demonstrates that European/Syrian and Middle Eastern Jews represent a series of geographical isolates or clusters woven together by shared IBD genetic threads.

JEWS ARE FROM ISRAEL, SO-CALLED “PALESTINIANS” FROM ARABIA


http://www.think-israel.org/aug06bloged.html#aug06.241


Posted by Palestinian Facts Org, August 29, 2006.


Arabs [propagandists] claim that (some of?) today’s Jews aren’t really descendants of ancient Israelites and are really converts WITHOUT EVER SHOWING ANY PROOF.


Here’s GENETIC PROOF that not only are Jews descendants of the Jews who were exiled from Israel by Romans, but Jews of today have more Israelite genes than Arabs have genes of ancient Arabs. Furthermore, SO-CALLED “palestinians” are originally from Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Go back wherever the hell you came from!


University of Baltimore Study: Jews are originally from northern Middle East (where Israel is located), while SO-CALLED “palestinians” are originally from Saudi Arabia.


The study also says that while Jews are partially the product of mixed-marriages and converts, Jews have about 70% to 80% blood of ancient Israelites, while Arabs have only 50% blood of ancient Arabs. (http://www.ubalt.edu/kulanu/jewishdna.html), National Academy of Sciences: Several lines of evidence support the hypothesis that Diaspora Jews from Europe, Northwest Africa, and the Near East resemble each other more closely than they resemble their non-Jewish neighbors.


Second, despite their high degree of geographic dispersion, Jewish populations from Europe, North Africa, and the Near East were less diverged genetically from each other than any other group of populations in this study (meaning that Jews have more Israelite genes than Arabs have genes of ancient Arabs). Our results indicated a relatively minor contribution of European Y chromosomes to the Ashkenazim. If we assume 80 generations since the founding of the Ashkenazi population, then the rate of admixture would be <0.5%>
Stanford University: If you made a genetic map of Europe and the Middle East and you put Ashkenazi Jews on it, they would not end up in Turkey or in the middle of Europe, but in the Mediterranean.
http://www.forward.com/issues/2001/01.08.17/genetic2.html


University of Arizona: We saw such a strong signal of a Middle-Eastern origin in Jews. Jews really are a single ethnic group coming from the Middle East. Even if you look like another European with blue eyes and light skin, your genes are telling that you’re from the Middle East.

This fascinating book traces the genetic chromosome makeup of the Jewish people and proves their decent from Ancient Israel. It focuses on the DNA makeup of the Kohanim in both Sephardic (Iberian, North African and Middle Eastern Jews) and Ashkenazic( North, East and Central European Jews) communities and shows that the genetic differences between Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews are minor. I The author shows a marked understanding and knowledge of a number of disciplines.
Rabbi Kleiman explains how the Kohanim and the Jewish people have passed the test of time and of tradition, and tradition has passed the test of science.
Science has proved that Jewish men from communities in the Middle East: Iran, Iraq, Kurds, Yemenites and Roman Jews as well as Ashkenazim/European Jews- all have very similar almost identical profiles.


The author quotes Professor Michael Hammer who comments:


“Despite the long-term residence in different countries and isolation from one another, most Jewish populations were not significantly different from one another at the genetic level. The results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora”. The genetic research confirms that most Jews today are indeed the descendants of ancestors who came from the Middle East. Jews everywhere are closely genetically related.
These studies also reveal that there is a closer genetic affinity of Jews to non-Jewish, non- Arab populations in the Middle East, such as Kurds, Turks, Druze and Lebanese Maronites, than to Arabs.

The Khazars and The Jews Dr. Thomas Ice

DNA AND THE KHAZARS


[…]
The opinion of historians and genealogists concerning the Khazars is now confirmed with the development of using DNA as a reliable way to analyze one’s genealogical heritage. Kevin Alan Brook9 is a leading researcher on the Khazars, and tells us the following:



We no longer need to rely on speculation. It is now a known FACT that German Jews mingled with other Jews when they came east. It is also clear that the ancient Israelites possessed those Y-DNA patterns that are found in common among Sephardic Jews, Ashkenazic Jews, Kurdish Jews, and Indian Jews, despite the fact that ultimately those patterns may have earlier stemmed, in part, from somewhere in Kurdistan or Armenia or Iraq. The Middle Eastern Y-DNA patterns in the J and E haplogroups cannot be explained by Khazars. Some of the mtDNA evidence and Levite Y-DNA can be, however.



Brook’s overall conclusion of Khazar origins is as follows:



In summary, Eastern European Jews are descended from a mixture of German and Austrian Jews, Czech Jews, and East Slavic Jews. The East Slavic Jews may haveroots in both the Khazar and Byzantine empires, hence necessitating our further study of Jewish life in those lands. But the largest, and most influential, proportion of Eastern European Jews came from Central Europe. By this analysis we can show that the dominant ethnic element among Eastern European Jews is Judean-the ancient Jewish people of Judea in the Middle East.



CONCLUSION


The Khazar theory has been completely refuted by both scholarly research into the history of the Khazars and, more recently, by genetic evidence showing that Jews from all parts of the world are genetically closely related to Middle Eastern Jews and not so closely related to non-Jewish Russians, Eastern Europeans, or others from that region. “Dr. Michael Hammer showed that based exclusively on the Y- chromosome (parental) shows that Ashkenazi Jews are more closely related to Yemenite Jews, Iraqi Jews, Sephardic Jews, Kurdish Jews, and Arabs than they are to European Christian populations,” notes Joel Baine rman. True research on the matter reveals that only a tiny percentage of Jews have any descent through the Khazars. So it appears that the Khazar theory is just that, a theory, and not a very good one. It is safe to conclude that most of the Jews living today in Israel and still in the Diaspora are clear descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…

Helen Thomas Repeats Khazar Myth by Eternal Hope
Sat Mar 19, 2011 at 09:56 PM PDT


One of the common myths that people have about the Jewish people is that they are descended from the Khazars. Certain people try to bolster this claim because it supports their claim that the Israeli people are not entitled to their land. But this is debunked here. Helen Thomas repeated this myth when she said in her Playboy interview that the Jews were not a Semitic people.


There was, in fact, a Khazar kingdom on the Russian stepps north of the Byzantine and Islamic empires. Their rulers and many of their people converted to Judaism as a counterweight against both of these kingdoms. But when the Khazar Khanite died out, most of the Jews scattered and were assimilated into other populations. Mainstream scholarship, however, has debunked the notion that most of today’s Jews were descended from the Khazar Khanite:

A number of more serious books about Khazars are now on the market, including The Jews of Khazaria by Kevin Alan Brook. Rabbi Bernard Rosensweig was one of the leading figures in debunking the Khazar theory of Ashkenazi Jewish origins. Writing in Tradition (16:5, Fall 1977, pages 139-162), he dismissed it as “wobbly scholarly foundations without historical support.”

Likewise, the Swedish archaeologist Bozena Werbart, an expert on the Khazars, wrote: “In the Khazar kingdom, Koestler wanted to see the origin of the eastern European Jewry. Nevertheless, all the historical and linguistic facts contradicted his theories.”


As The Encyclopedia of Judaism (1989) emphatically states, “The notion that Ashkenazi Jewry is descended from the Khazars has absolutely no basis in fact.”



And the fact of the matter is that Judaism has never been defined along racial lines — in the Bible, the Ethiopian who rescued Jeremiah from death in the King’s dungeon was Jewish. People from all over the world came to the Passover Feast while the Temple was still in existence. Judaism has never been defined on racial grounds — people from all races are welcome as converts.


Plaut continues:

Jews already lived in Europe a thousand years before the Khazar kingdom was formed. There are no genetic markers or indicators at all showing that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Turkic tribes. In fact, there exists considerable genetic evidence showing that European Jews are closer to Levantine and Syrian Arabs than to Central Asians.

After the Mongol invasion most Khazars probably assimilated into the Jewish communities of Iran and Iraq, which of course eventually emerged as important Sephardic centers, formed mainly of Jews with Semitic racial characteristics, descended from migrants and exiled Jews from the Land of Israel. In any case, there are more “Semitic” Sephardic Jews in Israel today than there are European Ashkenazi Jews. And if the Khazars looked Turkic, how on earth could they give Ashkenazi Jews a European complexion?


There are other problems. If all Ashkenazi Jews are descended from converted Khazars, why are there Cohens and Levis among them? One inherits the status of a Cohen (priest) or Levite from one’s father. Descendants of converts through the male line can never be a Cohen or a Levite.


And why are there no Khazar surnames among Ashkenazim, or Khazar names for towns in Europe where Jews lived? And why did most Ashkenazi communities speak variations of Yiddish rather than Turkic?



Although it is used by certain white supremacist groups to justify their hateful theories, these theories are simply not true.


What all this means is that historically, every people has a right to self-determination. Even if we claim based on the fact that Herodotus didn’t mention any Jews in present-day Israel that there were no Jews there, we do know they were there in the first century AD. And older archeological discoveries point to the existence of the House of David. There have been other remains which date back to the time of David as well.


The other claim is that the Temple was actually rebuilt by the Muslims. But that ignores the fact that for 2000 years, the Jews have had no physical Temple to worship at since the Romans destroyed the last one.


Since the Jewish people have the right to self-determination under international law and since Israel has been the historic homeland of the Jewish people, we cannot, as Helen Thomas naively assumes, just expect them to go back to wherever they came from before they emigrated to Israel. That is why we have to have a two-state solution — since we are dealing with the historic homeland of the Jewish and Palestinian peoples, we have to find some way to share the land and figure out a way to deal with the refugees from the 1948 war as well as their descendants.


What Helen Thomas did was fail to live up to her own profession’s standards for accuracy and fairness:

I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.

I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true.



Helen Thomas had a professional responsibility to state the facts regardless of whether or not they upheld her personal beliefs. In this instance, she failed to do so.

REFUTING MODERN ANTI-SEMITISM: The myth that all Jews are Khazars (from 700-1000 A.D. who never lived in Palestine)
Posted by barrypopik (Diary)
Saturday, July 3rd at 4:54AM EST

Refuting anti-Semitism is a seemingly thankless and daily chore in this age of the internet. The Khazar myth (that Ashkenazi “Jews” are really converted Khazars from 700-1000 A.D.) has been popping up all over recently. A good refutation is nary anywhere, but we’ll look at some new DNA evidence to trace the Ashkenazi genealogical line–blowing the Khazar myth to smithereens.


If Helen Thomas only knew, she’d have said “Send ‘em back to Khazaria!” and all would have been well in anti-Semite land. Even better, the Khazars aren’t Semites!


KHAZAR ANTI-SEMITISM ON YOUTUBE
The Khazarian Conspiracy (12 parts, from August 1, 2009) seems to have added a part and become The Khazarian Supremacy (13 YouTube parts, from May 13, 2010). I’ve seen all parts. Iran’s leader is building a “peaceful” nuclear device. Farrakhan is presented as a spokesman for peace. The Jews started World War I, World War II, and are going to lead us into World War III. Holocaust “revisionist” David Cole makes an extended appearance, without a single contradiction from anyone. Oh, did I tell you that they’re really not “Jews” at all, but Khazars from between the Caspian and Black Seas?

The six-part YouTube title KHAZAR EMPIRE,ILLUMINATI & THE NEW WORLD ORDER part 1 consists of Jack Otto at a Ron Paul for President 2008 meeting, spouting the same anti-Semitic garbage as some of the videos above. Maybe Ron Paul isn’t an anti-Semite, but anti-Semites sure seem to love him.


Also on YouTube (and on the same side as Ron Paul) is Iran, with Iran TV – Khazar Ashkenazi “Jews” (ENG SUB).


The only mild YouTube rebuke is one young fellow’s Am I khazar? (from September 22, 2007) and his Enough with the Khazars already! (from May 23, 2008), where he reads DNA information straight from Wikipedia.


BENJAMIN FREEDMAN’S 1961 SPEECH, DEBUNKED
This whole thing was popularized by a
Benjamin H. Freedman (1890-1984) speech at the Willard Hotel in 1961, on YouTube as Benjamin H Freedman The Khazars. Freedman was associated with Henry Morganthau (Jr. and Sr.); Freedman converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism.


In Freedman’s 1961 Willard Hotel speech (online here as “The Amazing Warnings of Benjamin Freedman”), he accuses the “Jews” of starting WWI, WWII, and being really Khazars (or fake Jews).


The U.S. entered WWI solely because of influential turncoat Zionist “Jews” who wanted and got the Balfour Declaration:



While that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, who represented the Zionists from Eastern Europe, went to the British War Cabinet and — I am going to be brief because it’s a long story, but I have all the documents to prove any statement that I make — they said: “Look here. You can yet win this war. You don’t have to give up. You don’t have to accept the negotiated peace offered to you now by Germany. You can win this war if the United States will come in as your ally.” The United States was not in the war at that time. We were fresh; we were young; we were rich; we were powerful. They told England: “We will guarantee to bring the United States into the war as your ally, to fight with you on your side, if you will promise us Palestine after you win the war.” In other words, they made this deal: “We will get the United States into this war as your ally. The price you must pay is Palestine after you have won the war and defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey.” Now England had as much right to promise Palestine to anybody, as the United States would have to promise Japan to Ireland for any reason whatsoever. It’s absolutely absurd that Great Britain, that never had any connection or any interest or any right in what is known as Palestine should offer it as coin of the realm to pay the Zionists for bringing the United States into the war. However, they did make that promise, in October of 1916. And shortly after that — I don’t know how many here remember it — the United States, which was almost totally pro-German, entered the war as Britain’s ally. (…)The Balfour Declaration was merely Great Britain’s promise to pay the Zionists what they had agreed upon as a consideration for getting the United States into the war. So this great Balfour Declaration, that you hear so much about, is just as phony as a three dollar bill.



Freedman insists that the Jews never had it so good than in Germany, but he conveniently ignores this (from Wikipedia):



Wilhelm Marr (1819, Magdeburg – 1904) was a German agitator and publicist, who coined the term “antisemitism”.



And if the Jews were sell-outs, no one told that to the Jews who died fighting for Germany (from Wikipedia):



A higher percentage of German Jews fought in World War I than that of any other ethnic, religious or political group in Germany; some 12,000 died for their country. Ironically, it was a Jewish lieutenant, Hugo Gutmann, who awarded the Iron Cross, First Class, to a 29-year-old corporal named Adolf Hitler. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Gutmann left Germany and escaped to the United States.


In October 1916, the German Military High Command administered Judenzählung (census of Jews). Designed to confirm accusations of the lack of patriotism among German Jews, the census disproved the charges, but its results were not made public. Denounced as a “statistical monstrosity”, the census was a catalyst to intensified antisemitism and social myths such as the “stab-in-the-back legend” (Dolchstosslegende).



Freedman says that a late-1933 Jewish boycott of German goods had crippled the country and started the anti-Semitism:



After a while, the Jews of the world called a meeting in Amsterdam. Jews from every country in the world attended this meeting in July 1933. And they said to Germany: “You fire Hitler, and you put every Jew back into his former position, whether he was a Communist or no matter what he was. You can’t treat us that way. And we, the Jews of the world, are serving an ultimatum upon you.” You can imagine what the Germans told them. So what did the Jews do?


In 1933, when Germany refused to surrender to the world conference of Jews in Amsterdam, the conference broke up, and Mr. Samuel Untermyer, who was the head of the American delegation and the president of the whole conference, came to the United States and went from the steamer to the studios of the Columbia Broadcasting System and made a radio broadcast throughout the United States in which he in effect said, “The Jews of the world now declare a Holy War against Germany. We are now engaged in a sacred conflict against the Germans. And we are going to starve them into surrender. We are going to use a world-wide boycott against them. That will destroy them because they are dependent upon their export business.”



Freedman conveniently leaves out these earlier developments in Germany in 1933 (from Wikipedia):



In 1933, persecution of the Jews became active Nazi policy, but at first laws were not as rigorously obeyed or as devastating as in later years. Such clauses, known as Aryan paragraphs, had been postulated previously by antisemites and enacted in many private organizations.


On April 1, 1933, Jewish doctors, shops, lawyers and stores were boycotted. Only six days later, the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service was passed, banning Jews from being employed in government. This law meant that Jews were now indirectly and directly dissuaded or banned from privileged and upper-level positions reserved for “Aryan” Germans. From then on, Jews were forced to work at more menial positions, beneath non-Jews.



So the Jews brought on WWI hatred for fighting for Germany, and WWII hatred for a 1933 boycott in response to Nazi actions.


To hit the argument out of the park, Freedman brings up the Khazar “fake-Jew” myth that has endured to this day:



What are the facts about the Jews? (I call them Jews to you, because they are known as “Jews”. I don’t call them Jews myself. I refer to them as “so-called Jews”, because I know what they are). The eastern European Jews, who form 92 per cent of the world’s population of those people who call themselves “Jews”, were originally Khazars. They were a warlike tribe who lived deep in the heart of Asia. And they were so warlike that even the Asiatics drove them out of Asia into eastern Europe. They set up a large Khazar kingdom of 800,000 square miles. At the time, Russia did not exist, nor did many other European countries. The Khazar kingdom was the biggest country in all Europe — so big and so powerful that when the other monarchs wanted to go to war, the Khazars would lend them 40,000 soldiers. That’s how big and powerful they were.


They were phallic worshippers, which is filthy and I do not want to go into the details of that now. But that was their religion, as it was also the religion of many other pagans and barbarians elsewhere in the world. The Khazar king became so disgusted with the degeneracy of his kingdom that he decided to adopt a so-called monotheistic faith — either Christianity, Islam, or what is known today as Judaism, which is really Talmudism. By spinning a top, and calling out “eeny, meeny, miney, moe,” he picked out so-called Judaism. And that became the state religion. He sent down to the Talmudic schools of Pumbedita and Sura and brought up thousands of rabbis, and opened up synagogues and schools, and his people became what we call “Jews”.



See, I’m just a “fake Jew” because of “eeny, meeny, miney, moe,” played over a thousand years ago!



There wasn’t one of them who had an ancestor who ever put a toe in the Holy Land. Not only in Old Testament history, but back to the beginning of time. Not one of them! And yet they come to the Christians and ask us to support their armed insurrections in Palestine by saying, “You want to help repatriate God’s Chosen People to their Promised Land, their ancestral home, don’t you? It’s your Christian duty. We gave you one of our boys as your Lord and Savior. You now go to church on Sunday, and you kneel and you worship a Jew, and we’re Jews.”



Not one Jew can be traced back to Palestine, Mr. Freedman? (We’ll discuss DNA evidence in just a bit.)


WIKIPEDIA ON “KHAZARS”
From Wikipedia:



The Khazars (Turkic Dialect:Xazarlar) were a semi-nomadic Turkic people who dominated the Pontic steppe and the North Caucasus from the 7th to the 10th century. The name “Khazar” seems to be tied to a Turkic verb form meaning “wandering”.


In the 7th century, the Khazars founded an independent Khaganate in the Northern Caucasus along the Caspian Sea. Although the Khazars were initially Tengri shamanists, many converted to the Abrahamic faiths through interaction with the Byzantine Empire and successive Islamic caliphates; during the 8th or 9th century, the Khaganate adopted Judaism as the state religion. At their height, the Khazars and their tributaries controlled much of what is today southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, Azerbaijan, large portions of the Northern Caucasus (Circassia, Dagestan, Chechnya), parts of Georgia, the Crimea, and Northeastern Turkey.


Between 965 and 969, their sovereignty was broken by Sviatoslav I of Kiev, and they became a subject people of Kievan Rus’. Gradually displaced by the Rus, the Kipchaks, and later the conquering Mongol Golden Horde, the Khazars largely disappeared as a culturally distinct people.



SHLOMO SAND’S “THE INVENTION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE” (2009)
A popular book among the anti-Israel crowd has been Shlomo Sand’s The Invention of the Jewish People (2009). From
Amazon.com:



Shlomo Sand argues that most Jews actually descend from converts, whose native lands were scattered far across the Middle East and Eastern Europe. (…) After a long stay on Israel’s bestseller list, and winning the coveted Aujourd’hui Award in France, The Invention of the Jewish People is finally available in English.



The book has 28 5-star reviews, 24 1-star reviews, and very little in-between. From one review:



In brief, Sand contends a number of things: “pure” Jews don’t exist; Israel and Judea were puny; the Bible is 100% fiction; Jews today are no different than any other people; there is no such thing as a “race” or a “nation”; many ancient pagans became Jews; many Jews later became Muslim, including the Palestinians; historians prefer to accept the Bible as fact and ignore true science–in an effort to justify the state.



Here’s a one-star review:



Premise of This Book Proven False, June 12, 2010
By B. Judell “I’m Not Cocteau” (New York City)
In today’s New York Times ([…]), the whole premise of this work has proven to be garbage.


Jews share common genes. Nicholas Wade’s article, “Studies Show Jews’ Genetic Similarity,” states: “The two [new] genome surveys extend earlier studies based just on the Y chromosome, the genetic element carried by all men. They refute the suggestion made last year by the historian Shlomo Sand in his book “The Invention of the Jewish People” that Jews have no common origin but are a miscellany of people in Europe and Central Asia who converted to Judaism at various times.


Jewish communities from Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus all have substantial genetic ancestry that traces back to the Levant; Ethiopian Jews and two Judaic communities in India are genetically much closer to their host populations.”


Let’s hope no one else believes Sand’s fantasies.



Another one-star review:



Too Much Nonsense, May 1, 2010
By D. E. Bernstein
Anyone who believes, against all genetic and linguistic evidence, that Ashkenazic Jews are descended primarily from Khazars, and the contrary evidence is a product of a Zionist conspiracy among geneticists, is not writing anything worth reading.



Another one-star review:



Propaganda, Not History, October 30, 2009
By random book reader “his-torybuff”
(1) DNA evidence shows that on their paternal side Ashkenazi Jews are primarily descended from the Middle East, not from Khazars or other indigenous European peoples
(2) There is no trace of any Turkic language in the language spoken by Eastern European Jews, Yiddish
(3) The idea of Jewish peoplehood, and the longing for a return to Zion long predates modern political Zionism. For examples, for centuries, every Passover Jews say “Next Year in Jerusalem.”


Sand is a leftist, ex-communist professor of French literature with no prior expertise in the relevant subject matter, no knowledge of the languages needed to do research on many of the topics covered in his book, and a propagandist of the first order. He won a French prize for non-fiction, but it should have been a French prize for fiction.

Tel Aviv University’s Shlomo Sand and the Neo-Nazi Theory about the Khazars
Last year I published an article entitled “The Khazar Myth and the New
Anti-Semitism.” It dealt with the myth, popular these days on Neo-Nazi
web sites, claiming that Ashkenazi Jews are not decendent from Jews at all
but are “Khazars” who are nothing more than interlopers in the Land of
Israel, people who cannot claim the land as their ancestral homeland. The
article can be read here:


http://www.jewishpress.com/displayContent_new.cfm?mode=a&contentid=21499&+contentName=The+Khazar+Myth+and+the+New+Anti-Semitism


Meanwhile, one of the very worst members of Israel’s Tenured Left,
Professor Shlomo Sand from Tel Aviv University, has a new “book”
in which he insists that Jews were never a nation and cannot be
considered one today, unlike Palestinians – who of course have been a
nation since the Big Bang. Sand is a malicious anti-Zionist and a
evidently a communist (he endorsed Stalinist HADASH). But his
new “book” clearly establishes him as a leading academic anti-Semite in
Israel.



From the blog Jewlicious (June 4, 2010):



Should Shlomo Sand offer a refund on his book now that another study has refuted it?
Written by themiddle
Shlomo Sand has been discussed on these pages before. However, his book still garnered immense attention, at least one very prestigious prize, a place on some bestseller lists, translation into numerous languages and the authority which comes with such success. There is one particularly telling Youtube video of a talk that he gave where he is challenged by a Jewish member of the audience and takes him apart by commenting that the gentleman doesn’t actually belong to the Jewish people since there is no such thing.


When challenged regarding DNA results that suggest that his thesis that the Jews are really descended from the Khazars and other groups, Sand was quick to dismiss those claims, suggesting that the studies point to other conclusions or are flawed. Yet now another study has been published that also refutes his thesis.



KHAZAR MYTH AND THE DNA EVIDENCE
Agaiin from
Jewlicious (June 4, 2010):



You Mean I’m Not a Khazar?
Written by larry
Yesterday, The American Journal of Human Genetics (Cell.com) published a paper titled, Abraham’s Children in the Genome Era: Major Jewish Diaspora Populations Comprise Distinct Genetic Clusters with Shared Middle Eastern Ancestry. The authors are mostly affiliated with Albert Einstein, NYU, and Columbia Medical Schools in NYC. They are Gil Atzmon, Li Hao, Itsik Pe’er, Christopher Velez, Alexander Pearlman, Pier Francesco Palamara, Bernice Morrow, Eitan Friedman, Carole Oddoux, Edward Burns, and Harry Ostrer. In an effort to define the relatedness of contemporary Jewish people (European, Mizrahi and Sephardim), the authors conducted a genome-wide analysis of seven Jewish groups (Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, Italian, Turkish, Greek, and Ashkenazi) (they left out the eighth, which is called Brooklynite) and compared them with surrounding non-Jewish groups and found that their are distinctive Jewish population clusters, each with shared Middle Eastern ancestry, proximity to contemporary Middle Eastern populations, and variable degrees of European and North African admixture.


Two major groups were identified by using principal component, phylogenetic, and identity by descent (IBD) analyses. They are Middle Eastern Jews and European/Syrian Jews. The results suggested suggested similar origins for European Jewry and refuted large-scale genetic contributions of Central and Eastern European and Slavic populations to the formation of Ashkenazi Jewry.



A check on Google News for “Abraham’s Children in the Genome Era” shows a mere six citations. If the study proved that Jews are really Khazars, don’t you think Reuters and AP would splash that all over the world?

Note to Helen Thomas (and others): Jews are home in Israel
Posted by Rick
Published: June 13, 2010 – 4:16 PM
Genetic testing suggests that Ms. Thomas is full of crap… but sensible people knew this already:


Two new genome studies of Jews worldwide prove that the Jewish people — long called the “People of the Book,” the “Chosen People” or, in unkind circles, “those people” — are, indeed, a people after all.


The first study, by researchers at New York’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, found that Jews across the globe share distinct genetic traits that are different from other groups and that trace back to the ancient Middle East.


Researchers say the study, published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, puts to rest age-old questions about whether Jews are a group of unrelated people who share a religious ideology or a distinct ethnicity with common ancestry.


“The debate is over,” said Dr. Edward R. Burns, one of the lead authors of the study. “The Jewish people are one people with a common genetic thread that evolved in the second or third century BC.”


The study, “Abraham’s Children in the Genome Era,” compared the genetic analyses of 237 Jews, including Sephardic (Middle Eastern) and Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews — as well as an analysis of 418 non-Jews worldwide, and found that the Jews were more closely related to each other than to their fellow countrymen.


Past studies have reached similar conclusions, but they looked at smaller populations and considered only blood groups, mitochondrial DNA (a type of DNA passed down by mothers) or Y chromosomes (passed down by fathers).


For this inquiry, researchers conducted a genome-wide analysis of the major groups of the Jewish Diaspora — Ashkenazi Jews; Italian, Greek and Turkish Sephardic Jews; and Iranian, Iraqi and Syrian Jews.


The study — and a second genetic study published Friday in the journal Nature — scientifically undermines arguments made by those who challenge Jews’ historical relationship to Israel, such as former White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who resigned last week after saying Jews in Israel should “go home” to Germany, Poland and the United States.


Turns out, the Jews in Israel are already there.



From The Jewish Chronicle:



Jews share a ‘genetic signature’
By Paul Berger, June 17, 2010
Jewishness is not just in your heart or in your soul, it’s also in your genes.


A new study carried out by geneticists in New York and Tel Aviv suggests that Jews have a particular genetic signature.


Geneticist Harry Ostrer, of New York University, said that within specific communities, such as Ashkenazim or Sephardim, Jews are as closely related as fourth or fifth cousins.


Furthermore, Dr Ostrer, lead author of the study titled Abraham’s Children in the Genome Era, said all Jews have a common Middle Eastern ancestry.



SUMMARY
“There wasn’t one of them who had an ancestor who ever put a toe in the Holy Land. Not only in Old Testament history, but back to the beginning of time. Not one of them!”–Benjamin Freedman, 1961.


Scientifically proven wrong this past month.


A Google check for “Khazars” + “Jews” shows 369,000 results, with Google Blogs showing 16,500 hits.


A check for “Khazars” on Alex Jones’s website Infowars.com shows two pages of hits, including statements like this one: “Another step by the Ashkenazi Khazars in their march to a one world order run and controlled by Jews.” And this one: “we been lied to the black people of america are the real israelites and these “so called jews” you speak of are khazars & edomites do your research.” Alex Jones has not seen fit to run a single link to the latest genome research.


So…now that we know the truth that Jews do indeed come from the Middle East, we’ll see an end to this “Khazar” anti-Semitism, right?


Right?

Jewish teenagers in Belgium quit their schools because of anti-Semitism

by: EJP Updated: 04/Dec/2011 23:56

BRUSSELS (EJP)—Like every Friday, as part of the day school activities, 13-year-old Oceane Sluijzer goes to the sport training center in Neder-Over-Hembeek, a Brussels suburb, where she plays football.

There she meets other girls from the same nearby secondary public school. Many of them are from Moroccan origin and Oceane feels sometimes difficult to be integrated and to be treated well.

She was in fact excluded from the group because of her look, she is blond, and because she is not of Arab descent, she says.

Two weeks ago, the shy Jewish girl came as usual at the center and found again the same situation. But this time she started a discussion. “Why don’t you respect me?,” she asked a group of four girls. “Is it because I am not Arab?”.

Then, after the discussion heated up, one of the Muslim girl, the group leader, shouted at her: “Dirty Jew, shut up and return to your country,” words that she repeated.

Oceane didn’t know how to react to the anti-Semitic insult but responded: “I will not shut up and I am already in my country.”

She then received two slaps in the face before being badly beaten by one of the girl for several minutes. It was only thanks to her Indian girlfriend that she could get out of the situation. “If she would not have been present, my daughther would maybe have been killed,” explained her father, 44-year-old Dan Sluijzer.

Suffering a head concussion and face injuries, she went to hospital. She talked on the phone to her father who told her to go straight to the police station to fill a complaint.

Since then she didn’t return to her school and was so scared that she even didn’t went out of her home. But she decided to change of school. The Jewish school was one option, but she felt Hebrew and religion were “too much” for her in the middle of the year.

In an joint interview with Israel’s daily newspaper Yediot Aharonot and European Jewish Press, last Thursday, along with her father, the girl said policemen told her that the four girls would be questioned, would be told that this was not permitted and that if they do it again the complaint would go further.

Police reportedly asked the girl and her father not to say that this was an anti-Semitic act.

“I feel better today than when it happened but it is still difficult for me psychologically because I cannot understand this violence, that such things can happen. I would never imagine that things can go to that point.”

“The problem is that the other youths, who are not Muslims, are scared and don’t want to react or intervene,” Dan Sluijzer, a professional actor, said.

She even didn’t heard from her school after the aggression, not from the headmaster nor from teachers or classmates. “I only received support phone calls facebook messages from fellow comrades of the Hashomer Hatsair youth movement.”

Already before the event took place, the father went to see the school principal to make him understand that there was a problem of anti-Semitism in his school.

“He told me: Mr Sluijzer, they are kids. Don’t generalize what happens.” Oceane and her 16-year-old sister Salome are the sole Jewish students of the “Athenee Les Pagodes”, a school in a quiet neighborhood of mixed social population.

Oceane’s father believes that the new school, located in a different area of the city, will be able to protect her this time . “Jewish religion is teached. This didn’t exist in the other school.”

Oceane doesn’t feel that her attackers are the “winners” because she left. One of the girl was expelled definitively from the school and two others for three days. They were told to prepare a research work on the Holocaust and the deportation of Jews.

The school principal declined any comment to Yediot Aharonot and EJP “because there is an appeal from the sanctioned girls still pending,” said Faouzia Hariche, who is in charge of public instruction in the city of Brussels.

Dan Sluijzer deplored the indifference of the Belgian authorities “like it was in 1940.” . “They prefer to let people fight each other.” Only Brussels Jewish parliamentarian Viviane Teitelbaum reacted and was to first to inform about the aggression.

In the beginning Sluijzer felt “hatred towards the Muslims but also towards the authorities because nobody say or do something.”

“I would have expected from political parties to tell my daughter: we understand what happened and we will act so that this could not happen again.”

“Unfortunately nothing happened,” deplored Dan Sluizer, whose father’s family members in Holland were deported to Auschwitz. Only two of them survived.

Sluijzer thinks that Israel “doesn’t protect Jews in the world enough.” and “that’s why Arabs attack Jews.”

“Jews in the world are fighting for Israel. When people attack Israel, it’s like they attack me. So when somebody attacks me I want also Israel to be next to me.”” But he thinks that the responsibility to protect the Jews lies more in hands of the local authorities.

Besides the aggression against Oceane Sluijzer, Jewish groups also reported the case of a 16-year-old Jewish student at the upscale European Brussels School where boys of the same age repeatedly called her “Dirty Jew” and harassed her because they disagree with Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians.

Her mother complained to the school but the reaction was rather unsatisfactory. Camille left for the Ganenou Jewish secondary school.

“It is unfair, the victim must leave,” commented the mother.

“Why are Jews in Belgium scared?,” titled a Belgian magazine.

RACIST Arab League “condemns” Gingrich’s remarks on “Palestinians”?

RACIST Arab League “condemns” Gingrich’s remarks on “Palestinians”?

From the BBC | Dec. 12 2011

Arab League condemns Gingrich’s remarks on Palestinians
Mr Gingrich has defended his claim that the Palestinians are an “invented” people…
The Arab League has condemned the Republican US presidential contender, Newt Gingrich, for calling Palestinians an “invented” people and “terrorists”.
Mohammed Sobeih, who handles Palestinian affairs for the regional organisation, said the claims were racist…

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16138129

Newt is right of course, the so-calle “Palestinians” are by in large newcomers who invaded the historic land of the Jews.


THE RACIST APARTHEID ‘ARAB LEAGUE’

Main victims: non-Arabs; Copts*, Africans* [it is even branded as a ‘KKK’*], Kurds*, Berbers* (Amazigh), Jews*, and –ironically enough– even “Palestinian” Arabs*.

Sudan democratic gazette: a newsletter for democratic pluralism: Issues 44-55 – 1994 – Pages 50, 120
Egyptian diplomacy moved in March to mislead the Arab world on Southern Sudan by pressing the Arab League to pass a resolution opposing the right to Self- determination of the people of Southern and the Nuba mountains. This is the first time that the Arab League has adopted a racist stance on what has previously been considered to be an internal Sudanese matter. As such, it marks the internationalisation of the conflict. The resolution was so racist… The resolution incites the Arab world to join Khartoum in its racial and religious war against the South. Egypt now appears prepared to commit its own resources to the war in Sudan… The Arab states are also members of the overtly racist Arab League of Nations which passed a resolution in March condemning any moves towards granting Self- determination for Southern Sudan…

Arab League SG a “racist” says Darfur JEM, demands public apology … March 15, 2011 (WASHINGTON) – The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) today directed fierce criticism at the Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa over remarks he made last week in which he downplayed the gravity of the Darfur conflict compared to the evolving crisis in Libya.

The United Nations says that more than 300,000 people were killed and 2.7 million displaced in the eight-year conflict in Sudan’s Western region. Khartoum counters these figures saying no more than 10,000 perished.

“Darfur is no Libya. Darfur since years back the restive situation was a result of foreign interferences and exaggerations in evaluating the situation in Darfur. But we succeeded in recent years in putting the Darfur process on the negotiation table and now there are talks under the [auspices of the] United Nations and the African Union and the Arab League [hosted] by Qatar and there is progress, ” Moussa said in response to a question posed by a journalist on why the Arab League moved swiftly to ask the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to impose a No-Fly Zone over Libya to protect civilians and not in Darfur.

Moroccan Berbers Call for Independent Berber State, Say Arab League is “Racist”

In an interview with the liberal Berber website “Tamazgha,” Mustapha Berhouchi, president of the TADA umbrella group of Moroccan Berber organizations, said that the Berbers need a state of their own: “In a world where a fanatical Islam is looking to acquire nuclear capabilities, and faced with Europe’s hypocritical attitude, the Imazighen (i.e. Berbers), if they want to continue to exist as a people, have no choice but to acquire a state.”

In a separate statement, the CNCCOT, a Moroccan organization demanding official status for the Berber language in Morocco, called for a new secular and democratic constitution, guarantees of freedom of expression, and an end to Morocco’s membership in the Arab League: “The Moroccan authorities’ membership in illusory, phantom organizations like the Arab League is nothing but a waste of time and money… We demand that Morocco withdraw from the Arab League and from all the racist organizations of which it is a member.”

Kurdistani intellectuals must unite now – lest history should repeat itself as a tragic farce! – Part I KurdishMedia.com – By Dr Kamal Mirawdeli 24/09/2003 00:00:00 Part I
[…]
Kurdistan and the Arab League…
The main reason that led to 11 September 1961 Kurdish revolt against the Iraqi state was that the Iraqi constitution in its second clause stated, “Iraq is a part of the Arab nation.” Accordingly Iraqi Arab state was keen to erase all traces of Kurdish nationalism and Kurdish identity. Iraq’s membership of the Arab League was and is an embodiment of this racist Arabism.

So what was the first achievement of Iraqi “Kurdish” foreign minister?

Did he, logically in the spirit of new democracy and openness, insist that Iraq is the country of Arabs and Kurds and cannot be a member of the Arab League unless the league changes its racist organisation and identity to allow the recognition not only of the Kurdish nation in Iraq and Syria but also of many other nations in Arab nation-states such as Amazighi nation, people of South Sudan, Druzes and Copts? The Arab League as a useless ideological racist Arabist institution has existed only to promote Arabism and Arab racism against colonised non-Arab nations. This league has a criminal record in supporting Iraqi Ba’thists’ genocide against our nation in Southern Kurdistan and supporting Syrian Ba’thists’ racist Arabising policies in Western Kurdistan.

Arab League and KKK are Two Faces for One Coin
By Elhadi Adam Elomda
Date: March 23, 2005

The KKK (Ku Klux Klan) is equivalent to the Arab League. This is because of the similarity and agreement of these two terrorist organizations’ goals. The KKK was founded to promote the white man’s superiority in the United States of America. It looks for the dominance of white men within political, economical, and cultural aspects in the USA. The KKK started to achieve its goals by strengthening the relations among the white men in the USA. However, the KKK used discriminative means against the minority black people in the USA in order to achieve its prospective goals. As a result, the back people and disheartened white people revolted against the KKK. Therefore, the KKK was disbanded in the 1940s although it changed its goals of hating the black people into love of white people. By the time the KKK was disbanded in the USA as a terrorist organization, another KKK was born.

This new KKK was born in a different area and has a dissimilar name from the former KKK. Yet, this new born KKK has similar goals to the former one. The newly formed KKK is named the Arab League. The Arab League was established in order to strengthen the political, economical, and cultural relations between its members. The league membership constituted of any independent Arab countries from any continent. Charter I states that “Any independent Arab state has the right to become a member of the League.”

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

May 12, 2010 … The modern DFI movement began in earnest 2002 during the Second Intifada. It began with all intents and purposes at Harvard and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) with a high profile petition on these campus to divest from Israel. The DFI movement has its roots in the original Arab-League Boycott of Israel. This antecedent movement is unabashedly anti-semitic and racist, having started with a de facto boycott as early as 1922 against Jewish interests, not Israeli interests, 26 years prior to the establishment of the State of Israel. The Arab League Council formally instated a boycott on December 2, 1945: “Jewish products and manufactured goods shall be considered undesirable to the Arab countries”. That, might I remind you, is a little less than 3 years before the establishment of the State of Israel and 22 years before the “occupation” began following the 6-Day War in 1967.
The Arab-League Boycott and the modern DFI are not one in the same; however, they share the same ideological roots of racism and anti-Semitism towards anyone from Israel. During the initial years of the Arab-League Boycott, all products, whether made by Jew or Arab were boycotted…

Racism risk in calls for Israeli boycott | The Australian Sep 19, 2009 … Calls to boycott Israel are nothing new. The Arab League has boycotted Israel since its creation in 1948. The most recent international campaign for an academic boycott of Israel started in April 2002 following the Israeli invasion of Palestinian West Bank cities in response to the mass suicide bombing attacks on Israeli civilians in the previous month.
… It is incongruous that many of the boycott proponents are of Jewish extraction. None of these figures seems to have considered that a boycott together with their inflammatory rhetoric (and fundamentalist anti-Zionism more generally) might provoke racist discrimination against Jews…

The Palestinian lobby is heralding this as a success for their strategy of Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions, itself an extension of a racist Arab League boycott campaign against Jews that goes back (formally) to 1945 – years before the establishment of the Jewish State of Israel. http://www.zionismontheweb.org/academic_boycott/spanish_ariel_college_boycott_solar_decathlon_spain/

The Story of Arab Apartheid
Posted by Ben-Dror Yemini Bio ↓ on Jun 3rd, 2011
[…] In 1959, the Arab League passed Resolution 1457, which states as follows: “The Arab countries will not grant citizenship to applicants of Palestinian origin in order to prevent their assimilation into the host countries.” That is a stunning resolution, which was diametrically opposed to international norms in everything pertaining to refugees in those years, particularly in that decade. The story began, of course, in 1948, when the Palestinian “nakba” occurred. It was also the beginning of the controversy of the Arab-Israeli conflict, with the blame heaped on Israel, because it allegedly expelled Palestinian refugees, turning them into miserable wretches. This lie went public through academe and the media dealing with the issue.

East Africa: Kenya and Sudan Headed for Showdown As Deadline Looms Breaking News [..] Adulis says: December 13, 2011 at 7:09 am

Omar al Bashir has killed more than half a million moslems in Darfur and he should be brought to court. It is shame that the Arab world were all going after Gadafi of Libya and now after the Syrian leaders for killing few hundreds of Arabs but the coward and racist Arab world was arming Omar al Beshir while the Sudanese Arabs were burning, raping and pillaging Darfur.

The Arabs only care about “real” Arabs that look like the Syrians and the northern Libyans, they do not care about the people they call “negro slaves” or Abid who look like Turabi, Osman Taha, Numieri or any other black person. How did the racist Arab League react to events in Libya or Darfur or even to the Eritrean victims in the Sinai desert under the hands of the Arab doctors and the Arab Bedouins?
