The Racist Arab MK: Ahmed Tibi who loves to shout “racism”

Bogus rant & disinformation

An Arab MK politician criticized for so frequently throwing around ‘racism’ even ‘fascism’ flags on routine Israeli security action, in his campaign of bashing Israel, including spreading disinformation[1], he’s part of the scene of use of epithets like ‘fascist’ and ‘racist’ becoming so commonplace [2], some have put his propaganda unfounded ranting style while Israel’s a vital democracy with full equal rights, freedom for all, that,

…using inflammatory words like “racist” and “fascist.” As is his style, Tibi failed to back up his white-hot rhetoric with hard facts… The Arab Israeli lawmaker who accused the Jewish state of having ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’ policies enjoys rights and freedoms he wouldn’t find anywhere else in the Middle East. [3]

His “assertions” & claims of events are often refuted [4], he was Arafat’s top adviser, since Arafat systematically attacked the legitimacy of Israel as a “racist” he used Israeli-Arab politicians, like Ahmad Tibi in his/this campaign[5].

The racist

Tibi has been accused of being racist.[6],

In 1997 he said:

“Whoever sells his house to Jews, has sold his soul to Satan and has done a despicable act.” [7]

He’s accused of rewriting history of the Holocaust especially the part of the Mufti & his linkage with Hitler, reviving an old canard that the real Holocaust victims were “innocent” Arabs who paid the price for Europe’s crime[8]. In an anti-Israel bashing editorial in the Palestinian Al-Quds newspaper in July 2007, he said, [the entire area of] Palestine belongs to the Arabs only, not to the Jews[9][10]. Despite alarming worries over his association with the PLO and the idea of negating Israel’s existence – seeking its destruction, inciting to racism, the democratic Israeli court [so often favoring Arabs’ side] Ok’d his party’s inclusion[11], yet, this backstabber ungrateful Arab, only knows how to smear Israel, to cast it (and its genuine security concerns) in a bad light, on world stage[12].

The violent

He has a violent background of attacking security officials[13], has been accused of supporting terror, terrorists organizations[14].

Anti-Israel apartheid: The bigoted campaign to de-legitimize multi-racial & full democratic state of Israel by (lying) branding it as “apartheid” – originated at the bigoted Arab Muslim society

What drives this “belief” on a society where Arabs can vote and get to high office, where all colors & races have equal rights?

More troubling is how one can not ´see´ the originators of this racist label – coming from the real Apartheid Arab-Muslim states where Jews are either not allowed in (like racist ethnic cleansed “Palestine” authority) & Christians are (real) second class citizens facing persecution, where the natives of the Arab countries (such as the indigenous: Berbers, Copts, Nubians,) or Africans (ranging from slavery & even genocide or at least plain racism, accepted discrimination, etc.), or Asians (especially those in the gulf states, many as slaves) or the Kurds have been/are victims of the Arab-Islamic supremacy & bigotry.

If this bigoted campaign to exclude Jews’ legitimacy to their historic homeland, to isolate Israel from all international bodies, or to tarnish all Jews, than what is Apartheid, racism really all about?

Michael Kinsley – It’s Not Apartheid – washingtonpost.com11 Dec 2006 … Jimmy Carter’s comparison of Israel to South Africa’s former racist … with a new best-selling book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/12/11/AR2006121101225.html

Israel Is Not An Apartheid State Even before the State of Israel was established, Jewish leaders consciously… the Arab minority are full citizens with voting rights and representation in the government. Under apartheid black South Africans could not vote and were not citizens of the country in which they are the overwhelming majority of the population.

The poisonous myth of ‘Israeli apartheid’

http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/story.html?id=306670

Milk & Honey Press – Israel has had waves of immigration from all over the globe– from India, Africa, Europe, North America, … like the new boys in this story, from Russia, and Ethiopia. … Israel is a “multi-cultural” and “multi-racial” society. … very beautiful with open vistas and, in the mornings and evenings, glowing colors. …
http://www.milkandhoneypress.com/forteachers_curriculum.php

The Situation in Israel
How much does modern-day Israeli society mirror this dismal record of legalized race-based repression and discrimination? One soon finds that even a superficial glance at the respective situations shows the comparison to be self-evidently absurd. In reality Israel, one of the most multi-racial societies in the world, goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure both tolerance and equality before the law. Its very founding Declaration of Independence specifically mandates complete equality of social and political rights to all inhabitants irrespective of religion, race, or gender.
Jews and non-Jews in Israel attend the same public schools, vote and stand for election together, live side by side in the same residential areas, enjoy the same freedom of movement and job opportunities, make use in equal measure of public amenities such as beaches and parks and can marry or live together with one another as they choose.

Israel’s immigration policies encourage rather than impede the influx of diverse racial groups. Amongst other things, it has facilitated the immigration of some 70,000 Ethiopian Jews and plans to absorb 30,000 more. The vast majority of the Indian and Ethiopian Jewish communities today live in Israel, as do a majority of Jews from Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt and other North African and Middle East countries. All, including Circassian, Druze, Kurds, Armenians, Beduin, and other non-Jewish citizens of the Jewish State, enjoy equal rights.

What kind of ‘Apartheid State’ actively seeks to increase its black population (and I don’t mean by importing slaves, either)? As Israeli academic Alex Yacobson points out, there has never been even a Western majority community that has been as willing to accept non-western immigrants to the extent that Israel has. Given that Israel has absorbed nearly a million Jews from Arab countries—who in terms of their ethnicity are essentially Arabs of the Jewish faith—one sees further that Israel has been the most generous of countries with regard to Arab immigration worldwide.1 All this has taken place under the framework of the supposedly ‘racist’ Zionist ideology.

While a measure of discrimination still exists in certain areas, this is in no way comparable to the kind of oppression that existed in South Africa. In any case this is being constantly confronted and eroded through the Israeli courts, in the Knesset, and by both Jewish and Arab NGOs. To compare the inequalities within Israel to those experienced by non-whites in South Africa both unjustly exaggerates Israel’s faults and subtly belittles the iniquities of apartheid. As such, it is a cynical ploy to piggyback on the suffering of others for propaganda purposes.

…Racist attitudes, however, are found to some degree in all countries. The real question that has to be asked is whether that racism is legally sanctioned. That is certainly not the case in Israel.
In apartheid South Africa, by contrast, racism was not merely legally sanctioned but indeed was mandatory. Even whites opposed to such racist policies had no choice but to comply with them. Courts had to enforce apartheid legislation, no matter what the personal feelings of the judges might have been, universities had no choice but to base their admissions policies on racial criteria and businesses could not employ qualified blacks in senior positions.

The War on the War on Islamic terror – False racialization of fear of terror

The War on the War on Islamic terror – False racialization of fear of terror

A writer elaborates on: Antisemitism, Islamophobia and Anti-Arabism: The False Link [1], In the wake of 9/11, opponents of profiling have shifted away from arguing against it because it is “racist”, but experts argue that Racial profiling: A matter of survival [2], the Arab world and some of the Arabists (inside and outside Israel) have categorized many Israelis’ genuine concern for their saftey and saftey of their children as “racism”. [3], at the UN’s Durban 2 conference, in on going major attempt to categorize ‘counter-terrorism’ as ‘Islamophobia’, Pakistan’s Islamic group wanted to include even more language to equate counter-terrorism with racism. Pakistan, Algeria, and Iran also wanted the words, “Islamophobia” and “anti-Arabism” to remain in the document. [4]

Israeli Arabs Muslims, often First class citizens above Jews – preferential treatment for Arabs over Jews

Israeli Arabs Muslims, often First class citizens above Jews – preferential treatment for Arabs over Jews

Introduction: Critics point out to the reversed unevenness, some have summed it up in one phrase: “If Arabs Can Live in Jewish Neighborhoods, Why Can’t Jews Live in Arab Neighborhoods?” [1], In fact, many have raised the issue of Arabs not only being equal citizens as Jews in Israel, but often as first class citizens, Arabs, Muslims first class citizens in Israel whereas Israeli Jews are second class citizens [2] [3]

Land issues: an example: Israeli Police evict Jews from Jewish-owned Hebron home as applauding Palestinian Arabs looked on [4], there are complaints of Jews who proclaim that they are sick and tired of being second-class citizens, while all Arabs in Judea and Samaria are treated like first-class citizens. [5], in another case An Israeli Supreme Court ruling did not deny that the land was Jewish-owned, but ordered the Jews to be moved out. [6] In another case, a lawyer for Y. Herskovitz, owner of property in Jerusalem, said his client will sue Jerusalem police for failing to execute court orders to evict Arab squatters from his property. [7]

In court (broader issues), the Israelis routinely decide in favor of the Palestinians against their own government, applauded by U.S. Justice Brennan,[8] preferential treatments to Israeli Arabs, Palestinian-Arabs include steps on the expense of security, such as the ‘Democracy in action’ [9], Israel’s Supreme Court took up the grievances of Palestinians and required the government to move the fence in the area near Jerusalem to make things easier for the Palestinians [10] Even the NYTimes acknowledges that at least [11] periodically, Israeli courts rule in favor of Palestinians (instead of security/government officials).

Voting: the Arab minority are full citizens who enjoy equal rights despite not being required to serve in Israel’s army . [12] and decry: Israel is the only country in the world that endows a community of its citizens with full voting rights on both local and national levels without also requiring them to serve in the army, adding that Israeli Arabs even refuse the alternative National Service. They even refuse a national service in their own communities and exercise intimidation against members of their community that raise the subject. [13]

Employment: Israel has enacted affirmative action policies to help its minority citizens achieve full social and economic equality. [14] [15], in an example: if an Arab candidate received the same number of points as the Jewish candidate, the Arab doctor was preferable, in keeping with the policy of affirmative action in government ministries. [16]

In academia: a professor has written about Israel’s “affirmative action”, quotas and preferences for Arabs [17] Israeli universities… instituting programs that discriminate in favor of Arabs and against Jews [18] and that Israel already has a system in place whereby Jews are often treated as second-class citizens. [19]

Checkpoints: From May 2009, All Israeli citizens – including Jews – must now show their ID cards at the large Tarkumiyeh checkpoint, at the same time, life is being made easier for Arabs in the region – despite the several murders that have been perpetrated by Arabs. The IDF explained that the decision was made to “reward” the Arabs for not rioting or attacking during the recent Israeli offensive in Gaza. [20]

Media freedom: while the Arabs have unlimited freedom of broadcast [21] and the Hebrew radio stations like Kol Yisrael and Galei Tzahal (IDF Radio) systematically broadcast from an Arab point of view, yet the Arutz Sheva radio station, often called “Free Israel Radio” (because it is the only independent news network in the Middle East) [22], has seen restricting steps from the Israeli government. [23] [24]

Access to holy sites, often Israeli police closes the Temple Mount to non-Muslims Like: Temple Mount shut to non-Muslims on election eve – was closed to Jews today in response to Muslim threats of violence [25] and on more occasions. [26]

PALLYWOOD TIRADE:: Arab ‘Palestinians’ Self Destructive Lying Criminal Drama language

Palitirade – Arab ‘Palestinians’ Self Destructive Lying Criminal Drama language

 

Fareed Zakaria (fareedzakaria) Interviewed a “Palestinian” rep. that has played that drama hype language on Israel, like “apartheid” (never mind the unfair treatment Jewish Israelis often run into as opposed to Israeli Arabs being favored in Israeli courts and police) & excusing Palestinian crimes (including genocidal Hamas that uses Arab civilians to kill Israeli civilians) with the usual “occupation” of course.
He also lied openly (as Pallywood so well does) about Israelis effort on peace vis-a-vis self destructive Palestinian Muslims.

The ‘Palestinian’ Criminal Drama Lying language
 
What’s up with the Palestinian phenomenon of “drama”?
This contagious fake language that got even onto that Ex President Carter.
 
HYPOCRISY
 
Why is ethnic cleansing of Jews from areas in Israel (“Palestine”) called a “step towards peace” and Avigdor Lieberman’s platform is called “ethnic cleansing”?
And if “resettling” by Lieberman is described so dramatically as “neo fascism” (for no reason) what do you call (Palestine – Hamas, Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad, etc.) Islamofascism’s blatant call to kill all Jews – plain and simple?
 
LUDICROUS
 
Have you ever described any security checkpoint (whether in the airport or anywhere else) as an “apartheid” and “oppression”?
 
COUNTER PRODUCTIVE
 
The hype rhetoric ‘Islamic behavior’ not only in their own media where they incite their youths towards Jihad with this “victimhood” & demonization of Israelis mentality, but on international platforms as well, whether on international media or in the UN – besides destroying their own society they fail to understand how they alienate Israelis that would sacrifice even more for any chance of peace.
 
 
PS
The Anti Jewish racist violence by Arabs in the holy-land started in the 1920’s not in the 1967 where the so called “occupation” excuse was invented.

PODCAST: The Pax Islamica: Totalitarianism, Islamism and ‘Islamo-fascism’

Ana Belén Soage

Ana Belén Soage

In this frank and relevant interview, Matthew Feldman, one of the editors of the Political Religions section of Religion Compass talks with Ana Belén Soage, of the University of Granada. They candidly discuss the nature of contemporary and modern politicised Islam.

Soage argues that the so-called ‘moderate’ forms of politicised Islam differ from the more radical forms (epitomised by groups like Al Qaeda) in degree only, not in kind. Any form of Islamist movement, she argues, necessarily requires the formation of a ‘Pax Islamica’; an essentially totalitarian aim. Islamist movements are therefore inimical to democracy as commonly understood. She also sketches out a surprising profile of her typical Islamist, and explains why the term ‘Islamo-fascism’ is so offensive to ordinary Muslims.

Why [Islamic] Terror Thrives [remembering Munich 1972…]

Why [Islamic] Terror Thrives [remembering Munich 1972…]
August, 2008

Why Terror Thrives

…It was the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, however, that trailblazed attacks on airliners with its September 7, 1970 hijacking of three planes “to call special attention to the Palestinian problem.” Sure enough, the Palestinian cause has since became synonymous with anti-civilian warfare, from the Munich Olympics’ massacre in September 1972 to the Arab fratricideinside Gaza this weekend. And the slaughter of innocents is now part of the Islamists’ struggle against “infidels.” What the Palestinians began in the early 1970s is now paying “dividends.”
