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.
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:

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

The man directly responsible for this cell-building operation in Argentina was the cultural attache of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires, Mohsen Rabbani. His job was supposedly to provide cultural and religious information. His real job, however — like that of the Iranian ambassador to Syria in 1983, Ali-Akbar Mohtashemi — was building the local terror network.
A Shiite cleric, Rabbani gave a 1991 speech in a Buenos Aires convention hall before an audience of about 100 Argentinean right-wing advocates and Shiite Muslims. The front row was reserved for officials of the Iranian embassy, who beamed as Rabbani declared in schoolboy Spanish, “Israel must disappear from the face of the earth.
COLUMN ONE : Hezbollah: The Latin Connection : Bombings in Argentina and Panama prompt concern over the radical group’s growing presence in the region. Experts say lax security and porous borders create a prime base for terrorists.
August 04, 1994TRACY WILKINSON TIMES STAFF WRITERBUENOS AIRES — The convention hall near the National Congress was festooned with flags bearing Islamic symbols and posters of Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock shrine. About 100 Argentine right-wing activists and Shiite Muslims filled the audience. In the front row sat diplomats from the Iranian Embassy.
The embassy’s cultural affairs officer, Imam Mohsen Rabbani, rose. “Israel,” he intoned in accented Spanish, “must disappear from the face of the Earth.” He and a dozen speakers who followed quoted Iran’s late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and called for unity in the fight against Zionism and the satanism of the West.

Congress Hears Again About Hezbollah’s Role in Latin America
By Luis Fleischman On July 12, 2011 ….The Committee on Homeland Security met on July 7th to discuss Hezbollah’s growing influence in Latin America. Testifying at the hearing were Roger Noriega, former Under Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere and American Ambassador to the Organization of American States; Douglas Farah, Senior Fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center and a former Washington Post journalist; Ilan Berman, Vice President of the American Foreign Policy Council; and; Dr. Melanie Cammett, professor at Brown University.
Noriega also spoke about the Venezuelan government’s complicity in encouraging Hezbollah activities. A key operative in the Hezbollah network is the second highest ranked diplomat in the Venezuelan embassy in Syria. The man, Ghazi Nasserdine, along with two of his brothers, manages a network that raises and launders money and recruits and trains operatives to expand Hezbollah’s influence in Venezuela and throughout Latin America. One of Nassardine’s brothers maintains relationships in the broader Islamic community via a multi-national organization known as the Federation of Arab and American Associations (FEARAB) in an effort to spread Hezbollah’s ideas.
It is important to add to Noriega’s point that FEARAB has been in existence in Latin America since the early 1970’s as an entity organized to serve as a mutual aid society to immigrants and residents of Arab origin, even though it was founded with the help the Arab League. Yet, FEARAB has been radicalized in the last several years. Its leaders are making incendiary statements and decades of decent relations between Arabs and Jews in countries such as Argentina have met their lowest point as a result of such radicalization.
This shows the extent to which Hezbollah reaches out to local populations of Arab origin and mobilizes them. Nasserdine’s youngest brother is strengthening Hezbollah’s presence by recruiting adherents via the Circulos Bolivarianos, Chavez’s main political and social organization aimed at spreading and monitoring Chavez’ revolution at the local level.
Furthermore, Noriega added that the individual who oversees the parallel Hezbollah network on behalf of the Qods Force is Mohsen Rabbani, a high-ranking Iranian wanted by prosecutors in Argentina for his role in the 1992 and 1994 terrorist attacks against the Israeli embassy and the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires.
Noriega’s main point seems to be that the presence of Hezbollah in the region has metastasized. As a result of the support Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia and others are giving to the terrorist organization, a more active role for Hezbollah should be expected in the future. Since the State Department has not given this issue the attention it deserves, Noriega believes the problem is further aggravated…

Are Iran’s Terrorists Finding a Safe Haven In Latin America?
By Joseph Humire
Published October 12, 2011 FoxNews.com
The IRFC-QF or “Qods Force”, which is Iran’s elite unit within the IRGC and responsible for exporting the Islamic Revolution throughout the world, has engaged in terrorist activity in Latin America for quite some time. The infamous Tri-Border Area (TBA) between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay has long been considered a safe haven for various Islamic terrorist groups— many of which are funded and supported by the Qods Force of Iran.
Of the many Iranians implicated in the attacks during the nineties in Argentina, one individual stands out as having masterminded these attacks—Mohsen Rabbani. Rabbani is the former cultural attaché of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires.
Rabbani, who now heads the Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in Qom, Iran, currently has an extradition order and red notice from Interpol barring his travel to the region. Yet, Interpol’s warnings have not stopped Rabbani from moving in and out of Latin America under false aliases as he visits his brother, who currently resides in Brazil, to help establish recruitment and proselytization operations throughout the region under the guise of “Islamic centers and mosques.”
In general, Rabbani’s recruitment, training and proselytization operations are carried out by Iran’s proxy Hezbollah. Through Hezbollah, Rabbani’s agenda has been exported throughout Latin America reaching as far north as Mexico….
Brazil latest base for Islamic extremists
By Robin Yapp, Sao Paulo
6:25PM BST 03 Apr 2011
More than 20 Islamic extremists connected to al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups are using Brazil as a base to hide, raise money or plan attacks, according to leaked documents.
However, according to Veja he is also in control of an online communications arm of al-Qaeda called Jihad Media Battalion, which has a presence in 17 countries around the world and spreads communications from al-Qaeda leaders as well as publicising attacks.
Another of those named is Mohsen Rabbani, an Iranian wanted by Interpol as the suspected architect of bombings on Jewish targets in Buenos Aires in the 1990s that killed 114 people.
According to the documents, he frequently slips in and out of Brazil on a false passport and has recruited at least 24 youngsters in three Brazilian states to attend “religious formation” classes in Tehran.
“Without anybody noticing, a generation of of Islamic extremists is appearing in Brazil,” said Alexandre Camanho de Assis, who co-ordinates Brazil’s network of public prosecutors across 13 states
The Terrorist “Professor”
Veja Wednesday, April 20th, 2011
Translation by IASW.
Original in Portuguese…
One of the most wanted criminals in the world, Iranian Mohsen Rabbani, teaches “religious training courses” to lure poor rural Brazilians.
The man pictured– white beard, wearing brown, and his head wrapped in a turban — is the Iranian Mohsen Rabbani. Among the seventeen people who surround him are eight Brazilians. Rabbani is considered by these people to be a teacher. The classroom is located in the city of Qom in Iran, which is sacred to Shiite Muslims. Converts to Islam, the young Brazilians traveled, with all expenses paid, to deepen their religious knowledge. Recruiting or proselytizing is common to all faiths. In this case, however, distortions are disturbing. Rabbani is not a teacher either. VEJA revealed two weeks ago that, in addition to being one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, he is also responsible for recruiting young Brazilians for courses on “religious training.” What this terrorist, named as a perpetrator of one of the bloodiest attacks in history and responsible for the deaths of over a hundred people, may be teaching the Brazilians is, at present, a major concern of the authorities. The clues uncovered so far to unravel this mystery are not encouraging.
“Professor” Rabbani is wanted for his involvement in acts of terrorism since November 9, 2006. His capture is considered so vital that Interpol has included his name in a so-called “red notice,” the select list of most wanted people in the world. The international arrest warrant against Rabbani was issued by Argentinean courts. He is considered one of the masterminds behind two attacks on Jewish targets in Buenos Aires, which killed no less than 114 people in 1992 and 1994. Rabbani was an Iranian Embassy official in Argentina’s capital and not only developed, but also perpetrated terrorist acts. With diplomatic status, he is now protected by the regime of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — and responsible for the recruitment of followers throughout Latin America (see document on pg. 68), promising religious influence and also money. Rabbani’s effort to amass followers in the poor regions of Brazil with no tradition linked to Islam is noteworthy.
“Rabbani is a serious security threat, including in Brazil. In Argentina, he spread his vision of radical, extremist, and violent Islam, which resulted in dozens of casualties during the Buenos Aires terrorist attacks. Now, based in Iran, he continues to play a significant role in the spread of extremism in Latin America,” prosecutor Alberto Nisman, head of the special unit of the Argentine prosecutors charged with investigating the attacks, said to VEJA.
The enticement of Brazilians for courses abroad has been monitored for four years by the Federal Police and the ABIN, the government’s secret service. It is Rabbani himself, with help from people he trusts, who chooses those who will travel. From 2007 until today, three groups of Brazilians have visited Iran. There are plenty of reasons for such surveillance. The course has, in fact, a strong religious content. But that is not what is of concern. Students from one of the groups of Rabbani have confided that, during these travels, they have visited the premises of the radical Lebanese group Hezbollah, considered a terrorist organization by many countries, including the United States. Reports to which VEJA had access state that the courses of Professor Rabbani are some sort of an entryway for terrorism. According to these documents, the classes include radical preaching and training in military camps.
180 kilometers away from Recife, in rural Pernambuco, the city of Belo Jardim is the most active center for the recruitment of extremists. Of the eight selected Brazilians for the first class taken to Iran in late 2007, four were from Belo Jardim. A brother of Mohsen Rabbani, who lived in Curitiba, personally took care of recruitment. Today, this Pernambuco city of 58,000 inhabitants deserves constant attention from the Federal Police and ABIN. Among the Brazilians are lured a taxi motorcyclist, a schoolteacher, an official of the Banco do Brasil, and an English teacher — all from humble backgrounds. Erlan Batista Machado, motorcyclist, had never been on a plane until the day he flew to Sao Paulo and from there to Iran, where he studied at the invitation of Rabbani. In Iran, he gained a new name: Sayd. Approached by VEJA, Erlan said he accepted the invitation because he wanted to know more about Islam. “It was a wonderful experience,” he said. He said he never had contact with terrorists or with radical groups.
The reaction of Professor Joao Adriano Oliveira was the same when asked about the matter: “It was just a religion course.” Joao Adriano, who teaches in a public school and is learning the Arabic language, was a natural leader of the group formed in Belo Jardim. Renamed Abw Husayn, it was his responsibility to make contacts with the brother of Rabbani and with Iran. Travel expenses were paid by a foundation coordinated by Rabbani and sponsored by the Ahmadinejad government. Joao and his classmates also received small amounts of money during their period of stay in Iran. They came back with a promise from Rabbani to donate $350,000 to build a mosque in the city.
Messages exchanged between the group intercepted by Brazilian police reveal that the goal of recruiting Brazilians and traveling to Iran involves more than spiritual enlightenment through religion. The messages contain evidence that the group and its leaders in Iran have something to hide. The report had access to e-mails exchanged by Joao Adriano (Abw Husayn) and Rodrigo Jalloul, a Sao Paulo resident who went to Iran for almost four years and remained there — today, according to our investigation, he is the right arm of Rabbani for matters that relate to clandestine activities in Brazil. In a message dated April 5 last year, Joao warns Adriano Jalloul, who planned to come to Brazil for a visit, of the existence of investigations into the group: “The Federal Police got involved in an investigation into Hezbollah money laundering. We can talk more about this some time, but I believe that, as of today, we have been monitored for more than one (sic). If you come, do it in a secretive manner, at the last minute, and only let us know when you are in the region.”
The papers seized included an annex to the document illustrated in this report. They make reference to Hezbollah and reproduce fiery speeches against Israel and Jews. The students of extremism in Iran have brought along pictures of facilities maintained by the Lebanese group on Iranian soil – the itinerary included excursions to various regions of the country and visits to religious and political leaders. “It has nothing to do with terrorism. What we learned here is religion. Mr. Rabbani tells us that these accusations against him are all untrue,” said Rodrigo Jalloul to VEJA. That’s not what those responsible for surveillance of terrorist movements in Brazil think. “Our biggest fear is that militants are being recruited for future terrorist attacks here, and for that reason we must redouble our attention towards these trips, especially because we will soon have in Brazil global events like the Olympics and World Cup, which can encourage these people to commit extreme acts, “said one of the authorities dedicated to the subject.
Along with the recruits in Belo Jardim, youth from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico traveled to Iran. The group’s ties to South America go beyond recruitment. The Federal Police has information that Rabbani came to Brazil a few times in recent years. In one of those visits, almost three years ago, he used methods that could cause a diplomatic crisis. The extremist embarked in Tehran bound for Caracas, Venezuela. From there, he entered Brazil illegally. Operated by Iran’s state airline, the Tehran-Caracas flight was called “Aeroterror” by intelligence officials for allegedly facilitating the access of terrorist suspects to South America. The Venezuelan government shields passenger lists from Interpol on that flight. Professor Rabbani’s movements were being monitored. The idea was to detain him in Brazil. Notified, the Federal Police set up an operation, but the order to execute this operation took a while, due to a complicated discussion about the political implications. Once again, the extremist escaped.
Terrorists set up bases in Brazil
IASW Monday, May 16th, 2011
The Federal Police have proof that Al Qaeda and another four extremist organizations are using Brazil to promote propaganda, plan terrorist attacks, finance operations and recruit militants
Cover of Veja issue no. 2211. Not to be missed by experts on terrorism and strategic affairs
Khaled Hussein Ali was born in 1970, in the east of banon. His hometown, Kamed El Laouz, lies in the Bekaa Valley. In this region, Ali, a Sunni Muslim, did his military service. Afterwards, he disappeared. At the beginning of the 1990s, he reappeared in Sao Paulo. He married and had a daughter. Thanks to her, in 1998, he acquired the right to live in Brazil. He lives in Itaquera, in the East Side of Sao Paulo, and supports his family with the profits made by a LAN house in the Vila Matilde neighborhood. Laid-back, he spends the day at the door of the business greeting people. Ali leads a double life. He is one of the leaders of the propaganda organization behind Al Qaeda, the terrorist group led by Saudi Arabian Osama bin Laden. From Sao Paulo, the Lebanese coordinates extremists from the Jihad Media Battalion in seventeen countries. The texts or videos by Bin Laden’s disciples are released upon his approval. The rule also applies to translations of speeches made by the Saudi terrorist and to videos put up on the internet by extremists. Furthermore, the Lebanese national provides logistical support for Al Qaeda’s operations. He is part of a network of terrorists that is wrapping its tentacles around Brazil.
Treated like a prince by his cohorts. Ali was followed for four months by the Federal Police before being arrested in March 2009. The agents knew how he operated, but they could not access the data on his computer, which was protected by Al Qaeda’s encryption tool, Mujahideen Secrets 2.0. To get access to his information, the police had to grab his computer while he was using it. They used a simple strategy: the monitored Ali until he accessed the internet and telephoned him. They struck while he answers the call. The computer was full of files that proved he was a leader of the Islamic terrorists. His e-mails make it possible to reconstruct calls he made to Afghan guerillas, probably the Taliban. In January 2009 Ali ordered, received and passed on to addresses in Afghanistan maps and topographical charts of that country. Afterwards, he ordered his subordinates to get manuals together to help their “brothers in arms” understand the material. Two hours later he got a course produced by the al-Qassam brigades, the armed branch of Hamas, the radical Palestinian party that governs the Gaza Strip.
In February 2009, the Jihad Media Battalion was trapped and Ali was called into action to defend it. At 8:00 pm on the 18th of that month Ali got an e-mail telling him that one of his men had been arrested in Gaza. He was said to be being held by Mossad, the Israeli secret service. With the news came a request that Ali block access by his cohort being held to Jihad Media Battalion files. This measure would protect the organization’s secrecy and keep its militant members anonymous. From Sao Paulo he “shut down” the captured terrorist.
On the same day Ali got a message telling him about another cyber-jihadist’s computer that had been infected by spyware. This time he ordered his subordinates to spread the virus through spam in order to confuse the Western intelligence services. His efficiency in these operations was praised by a terrorist who identifies himself as the number two in Al Qaeda in Iraq: “You are proving to the crusaders (Westerners) that we are in their countries, and that they cannot stop us from operating in their territory or from talking to their children.”
In addition to the proof of terrorism on the internet, the Federal Police found spam on Ali’s computer sent to the United States to incite hate of Jews and black people. Other files, which attacked President Barack Obama, were sent to conservative American groups to stir up political discussion. Contacted by VEJA magazine, Ali claimed to be someone else. This martial, however, allowed the Federal Police to charge him with racism, inciting crime and racketeering. He was not accused of terrorism because the Brazilian Penal Code does not make a provision for this crime. The Lebanese national spent 21 days in custody. He was released because the Federal Public Prosecutor did not press charges. Cases such this have further damaged relations between the US and Brazilian governments.
Twenty years ago the Brazilian authorities have known about – and ignored – reports drawn up by Interpol, the CIA, the FBI and the US Treasury Department about extremist activity in Brazil. The terrorist attacks against Jewish targets in Buenos Aires, which killed 114 people in 1992 and 1994, led to a review of the way the issue was being dealt with. The Federal Police reacted by putting together an antiterrorism service. Thanks to that, it was discovered that in 1995 Bin Laden and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who helped plan the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 201 1, had been in Foz do Iguassu. Bin Laden’s visit was revealed by VEJA eight years later. Despite the fact that the tentacles of terror have stretched further around Brazil, the federal government broke up the service in 2009. All the agents from the sector were removed, which damaged the investigations. Two months ago VEJA had access to reports drawn up by this team. Besides Ali, twenty militants from Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group and Egypt’s al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya use or used to use Brazil as a hideout, logistics center, fund-raising source, and planning center for terrorist attacks. The reporters from this magazine also got reports sent to Brazil by the US government.
These documents allowed VEJA to find Ali and another four extremists. They live in Brazil as if they were regular citizens. One of them was sentenced in his own country. Hesham Ahmed Mahmoud Eltrabily has been identified in Egypt as one of those involved in the massacre of 62 tourists visiting the ruins in Luxor, in 1997. With an arrest warrant issued by Interpol, he was captured in Sao Paulo, five years afterwards. The Supreme Federal Tribunal refused to extradite him, claiming that the proof provided by the Egyptian government was not decisive. Now, the Egyptian sells electronics at the Galeria Pagé, one of Sao Paulo’s main centers selling illegally smuggled products. VEJA passed on the content of this report to the staff at his store, but Eltrabily did not return our telephone calls. The Eltrabily case is similar to the Mohamed Ali Abou Elezz Ibrahim Soliman case, who was not tracked down by VEJA. Soliman was also sentenced in Egypt for his part in the Luxor attack. Arrested in 1999, the Supreme Tribunal rejected Soliman’s extradition, finding formal errors of instruction in the process, such as the mistranslation of documents. Just like Eltrabily, he sells illegally smuggled products, but in Foz do Iguassu. As one of his cohorts, he is part of the Brazilian al-Gama´a al-Islamiyya cell, subordinated to Al Qaeda.
Accused of plotting terrorist attacks against the Jewish institutions that killed 114 people in Buenos Aires in 1992 and 1994, Iranian Mohsen Rabbani is wanted by Interpol but often comes in and out of Brazil without any trouble. An employee of the Iranian government, he uses passports issued in false names to visit a brother who lives in Curitiba. The last time this happened was in September last year. When Interpol alerted the Federal Police that he was in Brazil he had already escaped. But it is not only family ties that make this terrorist visit Brazil. The Brazilian Intelligence Agency (Abin) has discovered that Rabbani has recruited at least twenty young people in Sao Paulo, Pernambuco and Parana states to go on “religious training courses” in Tehran.
“Without anyone noticing, a generation of Islamic extremists is rising up in Brazil,” says government prosecutor Alexandre Camanho de Assis, who coordinates the Public Prosecutor’s Office in thirteen states and the Federal District.
In Sao Bernardo do Campo, in the region of Sao Paulo known as ABC Paulista, two Brazilians have been converted. Their stories were discovered by the CIA during the interrogation of one of the Al Qaeda leaders, Saudi national Abu Zubaydah, the man who convinced English national Richard Reid to put a bomb in the heel of his shoe and to try to set it off on a flight from Paris to Miami, in 2001. Being held in Guantanamo, Zubaydah was water boarded. In his book, Decision Points, Former President George W. Bush claims that torturing Zubaydah helped prevent other terrorist attacks. In Guantanamo, the Saudi jihadist said that he had welcomed the men from Sao Paulo Alan Cheidde and Anuar Pechliye to the combatant training camp in Khaldan, in Afghanistan. Cheidde is from a well-known family in ABC Paulista. His father, Felipe Cheidde, made one of the largest fortunes in the region in factoring, bingo and lottery houses. He became a Federal Deputy for the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB). A he owns a fourth division soccer club, Esporte Clube Sao Bernardo, he is popular in his city. His 1,400 m2 house is one of the most sumptuous in Sao Bernardo do Campo.
Even so, the connections his son Alan had with terrorists went unnoticed by the Brazilian authorities until 2004, when the CIA told the Federal Police. The US agents reported that Cheidde and his friend Pechliye had been asked to sort out Brazilian passports for members of Al Qaeda. Questioned by the Federal Police, both said they had lost their passports twice, in 2000 and 2001, and they could not remember the circumstances under which it had happened. Despite considering the excuse to be full of holes, the Brazilian authorities decided to release them. Cheidde told VEJA that his trip is a private matter. Pechliye did not return the reporter’s call. One of the rare occasions on which terrorists were troubled was in June 2005. That month the Federal Police made use of Operation Panorama against illegal immigration to arrest 21 extremists. They were charged with criminal misrepresentation and altering documents to get permanent visas for Brazil. They did this by faking marriages to Brazilian women.
The radicals shoes single mothers, paid them R$ 1,000 to take part in the fraud and they recognized the children as their own. They formally became the parents of Brazilian children and so could not be extradited.
The gang was led by Lebanese national Jihadist Chaim Baalbalti and Jordanian Sael BasheerYahya Najib Atari, a prominent Muslim leader from Foz do Iguassu. With the gang, the Federal Police seized 1,206 passports issued by Portugal, Spain, and Mexico. Mostly stolen, these documents were sold for US$ 11,000 each to extremists wanted by the police in several countries to radicals who wanted to disappear without a trace. The organization run by Baalbaki and Atari was not restricted to Brazil. Kuwait has accused the Jordanian of associating with local counterfeiters to help jihadists escape. Most of the Islamic community in Foz do Iguassu rejects terrorism. Fugitives of war and terrorist attacks in their native countries, it is the main source of information for the Federal Police. On the Triple Frontier of Brazil. Argentina and Paraguay, radicals form a marginal contingent among the 12,000 Muslims living there. But this has not stopped Atari from presiding over the Arab Palestine Association nr from being a spokesperson for the community. It was as such that he posed for the photograph at the top of this report. Contacted by VEJA afterwards, Atari, who like Baalbaki is free while awaiting the court case on criminal misrepresentation, racketeering, and aiding illegal immigration, said he would not like to talk about the accusations made against him.
Atari audacity reflects the comfort the law assures him of. He and Baalbaki, besides being free, will only be extradited if found guilty. “Terrorists take advantage of the fragility of Brazilian legislation,’ admitted Daniel Lorenz, former head of the Intelligence Department at the Federal Police and currently secretary of Security in the Federal District, speaking at a hearing in the Chamber of Deputies. The pair continue to do business in Parana, a kind of Wall Street for the jihad “The Triple Frontier is, today, a financial artery for Hezbollah,” wrote the director of the Director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control at the US Treasury, Arfam Szubin, in a report sent to the US Department of State, referring to the Lebanese group. This situation has been arrived at because of the refusal of the Brazilian government to face up to terrorism. In 2007 a group of Deputies tried to amend the constitutional article that rules on terrorism. It was defeated by the then national Justice Secretary, Pedro Abramovay. “He claimed that an anti-terrorism law would attract terrorists,” says former Deputy Raul Jungmann (PPS-PE). By this way of thinking, of lack of it, Brazil should abolish the laws against murder, theft and drug dealing. After all, they would also incite people to break the law.
Lenience with Islamic extremism is also a feature of Brazilian diplomacy, which does not recognize Hezbollah, Hamas or the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (Farc) as terrorists. In part, this is to do with an attempt to sell an image of Brazil as a tropical paradise armor plated against terrorist attacks. But it also presents itself as full of sympathetic from the left for jihadists, who are visceral enemies of the United States. An anti-terrorism law would also cover “social movements,” such as the Movement of Victims of Dams which, in 2007, threatened to open the stop gates at the Tucurui hydroelectric plant, and the Landless Peasants Movement which invades and destroys farms. “The Federal Police and the US government indicate the action taken by social movements as one of the main impediments to more effective combating of terrorism,” says Jungmann.
Although it has carried out the investigations described in this report, the Federal Police adopt an ambiguous stance when commentating on the discoveries their people have made. The institution is evasive, saying that it “does not label people or groups that in some way may act having been inspired by terrorism.” This opaque and incoherent message not only helps extremist organizations take root in Brazil but it creates great risks for the immediate future. Terrorist handbooks recommend that militants launch terrorist attacks on occasions when their actions gain visibility. The federal police and prosecutors interviewed by VEJA fear that they see such opportunities in the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.
THE ESCALATION OF EVIL
1st STAGE (1992) – Brazil began to be used as a stopping-off point for terrorists like those who blew up the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, In 1995, Osama bin Laden and the third-in-charge of Al Qaeda, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, went to Foz do Iguassu, as VEJA reveled in 2003.
2nd STAGE (1996) – They began to establish themselves legally in Brazil. One cover they used to stay in the country was to legally adopt the children of single mothers. As official parents of Brazilian children, they could not be extradited.
3rd STAGE (1999) – Beginning of recruiting Brazilians. The most inclined to fight were sent abroad to learn more about the extremists’ doctrine and to be trained in terrorist camps in Afghanistan.
th STAGE (2001) – Brazil began to be used as a terrorism finance base and attack preparation center. After the attacks on September 11, the US Treasury Department identified money being sent to Hezbollah from Brazil. One single militant set up in Parana sent US$ 100 million to this extremist group.

Islamic extremists currently operating in Triple Frontier area, Brazilian magazine says
[Buenos Aires Herald, April 2011]
Islamic extremist groups such as Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and Hamas are illegally operating in the Triple Frontier area shared by Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil, where they allegedly gather large amounts of money, recruit new militants and plan additional attacks, Brazilian magazine Veja denounced.
The weekly publication stated that several reports by the Brazilian Federal Police and the US government warn that at least twenty high-ranking members from the three organizations are currently operating in the so-called “Triple Frontier” area, shared by Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil.
The Brazilian government has always denied the existence of any activities linked to these Islamic groups, but has admitted that a large portion of the Lebanese community living in the country legally sends large sums of money to the Middle East.
Also under investigation, according to the article published on Sunday, is Mohsen Rabbani, a former cultural attaché to the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires, who is suspected of being involved in the 1992 and 1994 terrorist attacks against the Jewish community in Argentina.
Apparently Rabbani “frequently flies to Brazil under a fake identity in order to visit a brother living in Curitiba.” According to Interpol authorities and intelligence agents in Brazil, his last visit to Brazil was in last September.
According to Veja, the ABIN (Brazil’s intelligence agency) found out that Rabbani took over 20 young men from the Greater Sao Paulo area, Pernambuco and Parana to a meeting Tehran in which they would be instructed on religious formation.
The article also assures that 41-year old Lebanese Khaled Hussein Ali, currently living in Sao Paulo since 1998 when he obtained legal residence after fathering a Brazilian girl, has coordinated Al Qaeda operations in over 17 countries from Brazil.
In 2009, Ali was detained and secluded for 21 days in a Brazilian jail after authorities raided his home and found several videos and emails that instigated hate against the Jews and black people.
Police authorities believed that Ali was one of Al Qaeda’s top propaganda men, but the Brazilian Public Ministry decided not to bring him to justice over a lack of evidence.
The magazine also states that the Shiite Lebanese group Hezbollah and the Palestine group Hamas also have a logistics operations centre in the Triple Frontier region.
Iranian Mullah Responsible for Terrorist Attacks in Argentina
by Anna Mahjar-Barducci
June 24, 2011 at 4:30 am
Iran is investing in strengthening the political and economical relations with several countries in Latin America. It is also actively engaged in religious proselytizing, particularly aimed for the poorest sectors of the Latin American society. Converts to Islam eventually undergo religious and political training, including in Iran, to prepare these new adherents to become instruments and agents of the Iranian regime.
Mohsen Rabbani, an Iranian mullah and a former cultural attaché in Argentina, is a leading figure in spreading Islam in Latin America, particularly in Brazil. Rabbani, while in the service at the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires, was involved in the planning and implementation of the deadly terrorist attack on the Asociacion Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) Jewish cultural center of 1994 that resulted in 85 dead and more than 150 injured. Rabbani’s involvement in the bombing was persistently denied by Iranian authorities. In 2007, however, Interpol finally decided to issue a Red Notice for Rabbani, which is an arrest warrant with a view to extradite.
Despite the arrest warrant, Rabbani, who is presently the director of Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in the Iranian city of Qom, continues, unabated, to proselytize in Latin America. According to Brazilian sources, he has traveled several times to Brazil under a false identity in order to recruit new converts to Islam. According to Argentine prosecutor, Alberto Nisman, charged to investigate the AMIA attacks in Buenos Aires, “Rabbani is a serious security threat, including in Brazil. In Argentina, he spread his vision of radical, extremist, and violent Islam, which resulted in dozens of casualties during the Buenos Aires terrorist attacks. Now, based in Iran, he continues to play a significant role in the spread of extremism in Latin America.”
The activity Rabbani is developing in Belo Jardim, in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, where local police have found evidence that the recruitment of Brazilians, and subsequent traveling to Iran, involves more than spiritual enlightenment through religion, is particularly alarming. Along with the recruits in Belo Jardim, youth from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico are also traveling to Iran.
The Brazilian Federal Police has information that Rabbani, in one of his latest visits to Brazil, used methods that could cause a “diplomatic crisis.” The Iranian mullah embarked a plane in Tehran bound for Caracas, Venezuela. From there, he entered Brazil illegally. Operated by Iran’s state airline, the Tehran-Caracas flight was called “Aeroterror” by intelligence officials, for allegedly facilitating the access of terrorist suspects to South America. The Venezuelan government hid the passenger lists from Interpol on that flight. Rabbani’s movements were being monitored, the idea being to detain him in Brazil. Notified, the Federal Police set up an operation, but the order to execute the operation took longer than anticipated, due to complicated discussion about the political implications. Once again, Rabbani managed to escaped.
In the 675 pages complied by the Argentinean Investigation Unit of the Office of the Attorney General on the AMIA terrorist attack, it is reported that one of the ways used by Rabbani to secure an individual’s loyalty is to send them to Iran so as to deepen their knowledge of Islam.
One of Rabbani’s favorite disciples in Latin America is Sheik Karim Abdul Paz, an Argentinian convert to Shiite Islam, who formerly went by the name, Santiago Paz Bullrich. He used to be the imam of the Iranian-run al-Tahuid Mosque in Buenos Aires. Now he is imam of the Islamic Cultural Center in Santiago de Chile. He studied in Qom, and became a leading figure of Shiite Islam in Latin America. He doesn’t hide his sympathies for Middle Eastern terrorist groups and maintains that the Shiite group, Hezbollah, is not a terrorist movement, but a “fundamental part of the heroic worldwide resistance against the U.S. and Israel’s terrorist imperialism”. This, apparently, is what Rabbani is teaching to Latin American converts during his spiritual courses in Iran.

Rabbani brings Brazilian converts to Iran
The man pictured– white beard, wearing brown, and his head wrapped in a turban — is the Iranian Mohsen Rabbani. Among the seventeen people who surround him are eight Brazilians. Rabbani is considered by these people to be a teacher. The classroom is located in the Iranian city of Qom, a place sacred to Shiite Muslims. New converts to Islam, the young Brazilians traveled to Iran, all expenses paid, to deepen their religious knowledge. Recruiting or proselytizing is common to all faiths. In this case, however, distortions are disturbing. Rabbani is not a teacher, either.
The Brazilian weekly, Veja, revealed two weeks ago that, in addition to being one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, he is also responsible for recruiting young Brazilians for courses on “religious training.” What this terrorist, named as a perpetrator of one of the bloodiest attacks in history, and responsible for the deaths of over a hundred people, may be teaching the Brazilians is a major concern of the authorities. The clues uncovered so far to unravel this mystery are not encouraging.
“Professor” Rabbani is wanted for his involvement in acts of terrorism since November 9, 2006. His capture is considered so vital that Interpol has included his name in a so-called “red notice,” a select list of most wanted people in the world. The international arrest warrant against Rabbani was issued by Argentinean courts. He is considered one of the masterminds behind two attacks on Jewish targets in Buenos Aires, which killed 114 people in 1992 and 1994. Rabbani was an Iranian embassy official in Argentina’s capital. With diplomatic status, he is now protected by the regime of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — and responsible for the recruitment of followers throughout Latin America, promising religious influence and also money. Rabbani’s effort to amass followers in the poor regions of Brazil, with no tradition linked to Islam, is noteworthy.
“Rabbani is a serious security threat, including in Brazil. In Argentina, he spread his vision of radical, extremist, and violent Islam, which resulted in dozens of casualties during the Buenos Aires terrorist attacks. Now, based in Iran, he continues to play a significant role in the spread of extremism in Latin America,” prosecutor Alberto Nisman, head of the special unit of the Argentine prosecutors charged with investigating the attacks, told Veja.
Rabbani’s courses are an entryway for terrorism
The enticement of Brazilians for courses abroad has been monitored for four years by the Federal Police and the ABIN, the government’s secret service. It is Rabbani himself, with help from people he trusts, who chooses those who will travel. From 2007 until today, three groups of Brazilians have visited Iran. There are plenty of reasons for such surveillance. The course has a strong religious content. But that is not what is of concern. Students from one of Rabbani’s groups have confided that, during these travels, they have visited the premises of the radical Lebanese group Hezbollah, considered a terrorist organization by many countries, including the United States. Reports to which Veja had access say that Rabbani’s courses are some sort of an entryway for terrorism. According to these documents, the classes include radical preaching and training in military camps.
The city of Belo Jardim, a Brazilian municipality in the state of Pernambuco, is the most active center for the recruitment of extremists. Of the eight selected Brazilians for the first class taken to Iran in late 2007, four were from Belo Jardim. A brother of Mohsen Rabbani, who lived in Curitiba, personally took care of recruitment. Today, this Pernambuco city of 58,000 inhabitants deserves constant attention from the Federal Police and ABIN. Among the Brazilians lured are: a taxi motorcyclist, a schoolteacher, an official of the Banco do Brasil, and an English teacher — all from humble backgrounds. The motorcyclist,Erlan Batista Machado, had never been on a plane until he flew to Sao Paulo, and from there to Iran, where he studied at the invitation of Rabbani. In Iran, he gained a new name: Sayd. Approached by Veja, Erlan said he accepted the invitation because he wanted to know more about Islam. “It was a wonderful experience,” he said. He said he never had contact with terrorists or with radical groups.
The reaction of Professor Joao Adriano Oliveira was the same when asked about the matter: “It was just a religion course.” Joao Adriano, who teaches in a public school and is learning the Arabic language, was a natural leader of the group formed in Belo Jardim. Renamed Abu Husayn, it was his responsibility to make contacts with the brother of Rabbani and with Iran. Travel expenses were paid by a foundation coordinated by Rabbani and sponsored by the Ahmadinejad government. Joao and his classmates also received small amounts of money during their period of stay in Iran. They came back with a promise from Rabbani to donate $350,000 to build a mosque in the city.
Messages exchanged between the group, and intercepted by Brazilian police, reveal that the goal of recruiting Brazilians and traveling to Iran involves more than spiritual enlightenment through religion. The messages contained evidence that the group and its leaders in Iran have something to hide. The report also had access to e-mails exchanged by Joao Adriano (Abu Husayn) and Rodrigo Jalloul, a Sao Paulo resident who went to Iran for almost four years and remained there. Today, according to the investigation, he is the right arm of Rabbani for matters that relate to clandestine activities in Brazil. In a message dated April 5, 2010, Joao warned Adriano Jalloul, who planned to come to Brazil for a visit, of the existence of investigations into the group: “The Federal Police got involved in an investigation into Hezbollah money laundering. We can talk more about this some time, but I believe that, as of today, we have been monitored for more than one (sic). If you come, do it in a secretive manner, at the last minute, and only let us know when you are in the region.”
Fiery speeches against Israel and Jews
The papers of the Brazilians seized by police included an annex to the document illustrated in this report. They make reference to Hezbollah and reproduce fiery speeches against Israel and Jews. The students of extremism in Iran have brought along pictures of facilities maintained by the Lebanese group on Iranian soil – the itinerary included excursions to various regions of the country and visits to religious and political leaders. “It has nothing to do with terrorism. What we learned here is religion. Mr. Rabbani tells us that these accusations against him are all untrue,” Rodrigo Jalloul told Veja. But that’s not what those responsible for surveillance of terrorist movements in Brazil think. The police “Our biggest fear is that militants are being recruited for future terrorist attacks here, and for that reason we must redouble our attention towards these trips, especially because we will soon have in Brazil global events like the Olympics and World Cup, which can encourage these people to commit extreme acts.”
Along with the recruits in Belo Jardim, youth from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico traveled to Iran. The group’s ties to South America go beyond recruitment. The Federal Police has information that Rabbani came to Brazil a few times in recent years. In one of those visits, almost three years ago, he used methods that would be cause enough for a diplomatic crisis. The extremist embarked in Tehran bound for Caracas, Venezuela. From there, he entered Brazil illegally. Operated by Iran’s state airline, the Tehran-Caracas flight was called “Aeroterror” by intelligence officials for allegedly facilitating the access of terrorist suspects to South America. The Venezuelan government shields passenger lists from Interpol on that flight. Professor Rabbani’s movements were being monitored. The idea was to detain him in Brazil. Notified, the Federal Police set up an operation, but the order to execute this operation took a while, due to a complicated discussion about the political implications. Once again, the extremist escaped. Veja (Brazil), translation by InterAmerican Security Watch

Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and Hamas in Brazil
The Brazilian weekly, Veja, said several reports by the Brazilian Federal Police and the U.S. government warned that at least 20 high-ranking members from the three organizations — al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and Hamas — are currently operating in the so-called “Triple Frontier” area, shared by Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil.
The Brazilian government has always denied the existence of any activities linked to these Islamic groups, but has admitted that a large portion of the Lebanese community living in the country legally sends large sums of money to the Middle East.

Only one Jew survived the 1660 massacre in Safed by Arabs, Jews had to buy off the attackers via borrowing money from rich Muslims at high interest which were extorted with threats of further attacks.
* First recorded attack –in modern era– on native Jews in Israel by Muslims, is the one in June 1834, Safed (the Plunder), the massacres and mass rapes went on for 33 days, (a provocateur, Muhammed Damoor, a self-proclaimed prophet, ‘prophesied’ the attack for which he agitated).
It was repeated in 1838.
* Egyptian soldiers massacred Jews in Hebron on the way of putting down a Muslim rebellion.
About the same time, Jewish houses and shops in Jerusalem were broken into and looted by local Muslim insurgents.
Throughout the 1830’s, the Jews found themselves caught between the ravages of the Egyptian soldiers and the multi-ethnic Muslim rebels who fought them.
* [Beginning, major wave of] Egyptian Arab immigration to Palestine.
First census in Jerusalem shows 7120 Jews, 5760 Muslims, 3390 Christians.
A pause in population growth. Desolation, majority of Palestine is vacant. [Arab migration would resume later on, as Zionists begin cultivating the deserted land].
Travelers, writers, including C. F. Volney in the 1700s, Alexander Keith in the 1800s, described Palestine as desolate, empty, waste land. Mark Twain, in “The Innocents Abroad,” 1867, wrote: “Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes …desolate and unlovely…” (though Jews always had some continuous presence for thousands of years.)
First attack of Arabs on a Jewish settlement was in Petach Tikva (which was the first settlement in modern day Israel-Palestine), in March of 1886.
Incitement. the periodical Falastin – with its extremist Arab nationalist slant – was abolished by the Ottoman authorities because of its racist hate propaganda.
On Nov 2, 1917, The British issued the Balfour Declaration, promising a “National Home” for the Jews in Palestine.
Seeds of conflict:
Arabs attack Jews in Jerusalem & in Safed 1920-1921. Better known as “riots.”
During the year, 142 pogroms and 36 lesser riots occur against the Jews. It was carried out due to incitement by [later known as the Mufti] Haj Muhammad Amin al-Husseini who began accumulating wealth and power.
He was the de-facto “founder” of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
* All out Arab immigration (from Syria, Egypt, etc.) into the historic homeland of the Jews started mainly in the 1800’s, however, a significant upsurge occurred since 1922 as Zionists changed the face of the deserted land.
President Roosevelt [in criticizing British White Papers restricting Jewish immigration] concluded in 1939 that “Arab immigration into Palestine since 1921 has vastly exceeded the total Jewish immigration during the whole period.”
From a speech by John W. McCormack of Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1939: “as 150000 Jews and an equal number of Arabs have entered the country since that time, and there are still large stretches of vacant land in the country capable of development and settlement by large population.”
* In July 1922, Churchill White Paper separates Transjordan from area designated for creation of Jewish homeland and links Jewish immigration to “economic capacity of the country.”
As a continuing policy of appeasing the Arabs, 75% of the area of Palestine was taken away from the Jews and the Emirate of Transjordan was created, later to become Jordan. First the British, then the Arabs banned the entry of Jews from the area. This put those communities of Arabs in Transjordan and even the Judean desert who were of Jewish ancestry in an awkward position.
* The British mandatory authorities disregarded al-Husseini’s record of instigation to violence against Jews and against Arabs [he was convicted by the British for his role in 1920’s rampage] who didn’t follow his dictating hateful line, and appointed him grand mufti in 1922.
First ‘Arab on Jews’ massacre in a clear attempt of annihilation, was the Hebron massacre in 1929, incited by the Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini who called to “Kill the Jews everywhere. This pleases Allah.” That was the foundation of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The 1929 riots were accompanied by militant Arab slogans such as: ‘Palestine is our land and the Jews our dogs…’ among the details of the brutality, small children were tortured by their murderers before being murdered. Women raped. Old Rabbis were castrated with their students before being slain.
Arabs attacked Jews in Safed as well.
[The mufti ferociously opposed to any form of cooperation between Jews and Arabs, which the fledging Zionist movement was trying actively to promote.]
Ever since the 1920’s, bigotry has been fomented.
[From a PEW poll as recent as 2009: 90% of Middle East views Jews unfavorably.]
In Oct. 1930, Passfield White Paper limits Jewish immigration to Palestine and forbids Jewish land purchases.
Arab immigration, on the other hand, flows into Jews’ historic land without interruption.
* For almost three years (1936-39) there was a general Arab uprising & “riots” led by al-Husseini, thousands of Arabs were killed by the British, Arabs murdered & beaten Jews.
Among the highlights are: On April 19, 1936, Arab rioters carried out the ‘Jaffa Massacre.’
In 1938, Arabs massacre Jews in Tiberias.
The Tiberias (today part of the State of Israel) massacre took place on October 2, 1938 during the 1936–1939 Arab “revolt” in ‘Palestine,’ as they went from village to village, while shouting ‘Death to the English.’
Arabs murdered twenty Jews –among them 11 children– in Tiberias after infiltrating the Kiryat Shmuel settlement.
* In May 1939, MacDonald White Paper strictly limits Jewish immigration and prohibits Jews from purchasing Arab land.
* Al-Husseini (Mufti) flees to Iraq and then to Nazi Germany.
The [non-Aryan, Arab] Mufti meets with Adolph Hitler (who –although– considered the Arabs, an inferior monkey-type “race,” yet managed to use him against the Jews) in 1941 [at times he’s called the ‘Fuhrer of the Arab world’], his parties & youth groups in Palestine are fascists, [since 1936, existed Nazi type “storm troopers” with the youth’s oath of: “Life — my right; independence — my aspiration; Arabism — my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness.” The Palestine two Arab para-military groups: “Futuwwa” & “Najjadah” were active under the mufti at least up to 1947 — cited in a 1947 CIA report document] he plots in his pact with the nazi leader, to massacre Jews on a big scale.
In his post-World War II memoir the Mufti wrote: “Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: The Jews are yours.”
He agitates –in that year– the Arabs, in Nazi oriented Iraq, to attack the Jews, many innocent Jews fall victims in the Farhud (pogrom in Baghdad), by the Arab-Islamic [Hitler-Youth group type] “futuwwa,” led attack.
Later on, in 1943, he will lead a Nazi SS [Bosnian] Muslim army [to commit crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing] against the Christian Serbs.
June 1947, Blutan (Bludan) Syria. Arab League formation. A collective Arab “Jihad” (holy war) invasion by Arab nations is being plotted, to wipe off the Jewish-Palestine, soon to be called (again) Israel.
* Arabs reject U.N. partition for a “two state solution” [even Haim Weizmann’s declaration of accepting a Jewish state even with the size of a tablecloth], the Zionists, however, agree, for the first time in (around) 2,000 Years, a Jewish (albeit non-religious, nor is its legal system Jewish) leadership is in its historic place back again.
* First attempt by the Arabs to ‘eradicate’ Israel, was right after its re-establishment (through the U.N.). The Mufti in 1947, when Israel was declared a state: “I declare a holy war, my Moslem brothers! Murder the Jews! Murder them all.” In 1948. Five Arab armies attacked, with Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League announcing ahead, “This will be a war of extermination, a momentous massacre, which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades.“
* Arab leaders ‘create’ the Palestinian-refugee problem, by urging them to leave, as they are (bragging) about to ethnic cleanse the land out of the Jews.
Ever since, these persecuted victims of Arabs (“brothers”), have been used as nothing but a toy, in Arabs’ war against Israel.
[Arab-Palestinians willingness to play along, is one of their first self-inflicted wounds].
* Close to 1,000,000 Jews, indigenous to the Middle East (after Jews dwelling there for generations) are being expelled, as Arab racism grows. (The Jewish Nakba).
* Jordan occupies Jerusalem [May 28], divides the Holy city, expels ethnic-cleanses Jews, applies an ‘apartheid’ rule. It lasted till Israel’s victory which liberated and unified the city.
1952 saw the first phenomenon in what now would be called terrorism, the 1950’s 1960’s Arab fidayeen raids against Israeli citizens & property.
[Worth mentioning, that when encountered by Bedouin –instead of Zionist– guards, the infiltrators have not seen mercy, to say the least, ‘Arab brotherhood.’]
In October 1959, Arafat co-founds Fatah terror group, the “Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine.”
Amids backing and encouraging the Arab Fedayeen attacks, pan-Arab “leader,” Nasser of Egypt, surprises the world as he nationalizes the Suez canal, which was owned by British and French stockholders. While France and Britain had economic interest, Israel feared [again] to be overrun by Arab nations.
Ahmad Shukairy (the Mufti‘s aide during WW2 when they collaborated with the Nazis) begins the vilification of Israel at the United Nations, including (already then, yes that’s right, who said, anti-Israel slandering has anything to do with what Israel does or does not?) with an “apartheid” slur.
He was also [the only known personality on the world, at that time who] “protested” the A. Eichmann trial in that speech.
In 1962, he identifies himself with Nazi groups in Argentina.
He had a long history of propagandists tirade, and was already arrested in Lebanon for anti-Western incitement in the 1930s.
The beginning of the era of the Arab immigrants (or their children) adopting the title “Palestinians” as an exclusive name (instead of plain Arabs or S. Syrians) as a political “defintion,” with the creation of the PLO.
For example, Ahmad Shukairy (the first PLO chairman) in 1956 clarified to the U.N. that they are Arabs, not Palestinians, but by 1964 he & other leaders have changed and began claiming they are the real “Palestinians”…
January 1964: Creation of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), with Fatah as its main faction.
Fatah terror attacks started in January 1965, between 1965-1967: Numerous Fatah bomb attacks target Israeli villages, water pipes, railroads. Homes are destroyed and Israelis are killed. In July 1968: Fatah joins and becomes the dominant member of the PLO, an umbrella organization of Palestinian terrorist groups. On Feb. 4, 1969: Arafat is appointed Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO.
On Oct. 21, 1996, Arafat said “We know only one word – jihad. jihad, jihad, jihad…”
In July 2000, Arafat rejected a peace settlement [leading to a “Palestinian” state] offered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
In 1967, Egypt’s pan-Arab leader Nasser declared, a few days before the six-day war, “Our main task is to destroy Israel.” Syria’s Assad: “It is time to embark on a war of annihilation.” Cairo Radio announced: “All Egypt is now prepared to plunge into total war which will put an end to Israel.” Radio Damascus exhorted: “Throw them into the sea.” Jordan’s king Hussein broadcast this to his army: “Kill the Jews wherever you find them. Kill them with your arms, with your hands, with your nails and teeth.” Throughout the streets of Damascus, Cairo and Amman the frenzied mob marched chanting: “idhbah, idhbah, idhbah, idhbah al-yahud” – (slaughter, slaughter, slaughter the Jews!) A. Shukairy “predicted” that no Jews in Palestine will survive…
The world is stunned at the miracle of tiny Israel pushing off Goliath Arab attack.
It also resulted in a knee-jerk resentment in the Arab world.
July 1968: First act of air piracy against Israel; El Al airliner hijacked en route from Rome to Tel Aviv by PLO terrorists.
Terrorism organized, among the highlighted first attacks: The Avivim school bus massacre in 1970, which resulted in killing 12 (9 of whom were children), and wounding 24.
The chain of Arab-Islamic terror picks-up, with targeting Jews in the area or in the world.
* On September 7, 1970, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked three planes “to call special attention to the Palestinian problem.” – Dawning an era of international hijacking as a ‘Palestinian struggle.’
The PLO, from Jordan to Lebanon.
* The PLO is chased out of Jordan.
It will start stirring trouble in Lebanon, instead.
To avenge the expulsion from Jordan, the PLO founded a secretive front group, Black September. Black September’s first victim was Jordanian Prime Minister.
Jordan massacres thousands of Arab Palestinians (Y. Arafat claimed that Jordan killed between 10,000 to 25,000 in September 1970), for creating turmoil, attacking the government, hijacking airlines, etc.
The Olympics cold blooded massacre of Israel’s sports team in Munich 1972 by Arab Palestinian terrorists, marked a turning point in getting the world’s attention to Arab terrorism.
All in all, the Arab-Palestinian actions, since the late 1960’s-early 1970’s, already defined its path by anti-civilian warfare.
The same sentiments of ‘total annihilation of 1967’ echoes in 1973, (like: “Throw the Jews into the sea.”) the Yom Kippur war takes Israelis off guard, Israel suffers initially great losses but manages to regain it’s control/win over the Arabs, again, within the course of a few days.
Syrian Minister of Defense Mustafa Tlas told the Syrian National Assembly in December 1973 of the following example of “supreme valor” by Syrian troops:
“There is the outstanding case of a recruit from Aleppo who murdered 28 Jewish soldiers all by himself, slaughtering them like sheep. All of his comrades in arms witnessed this. He butchered three of them with an ax and decapitated them….He struggled face to face with one of them and throwing down his ax managed to break his neck and devour his flesh in front of his comrades. This is a special case. Need I single it out to award him the Medal of the Republic. I will grant this medal to any soldier who succeeds in killing 28 Jews, and I will cover him with appreciation and honor his bravery.“
October 16, 1973, OPEC Led by Saudi Arabia, announced the Arab oil embargo on western countries as a strategic part of the ‘Yom Kippur War,’ to use oil as a weapon.
As Arab nations boycotted Israel, corporations and nations had to agree to Arab demands and not do business with Israel, Arab dictators, terrorist nations/groups, extorted financial benefits or/and political concessions.
The collapse in the oil cartel in the 1980’s; the disunity in the Arab world; Israel’s well advanced high tech market & Israeli consumer market has, weakened somewhat the ‘Arab oil weapon.’
Racist Arabs’ first campaign, of instilling in world’s mind the idea that Zionism [which is about Jews’ return to their homeland] should be regarded as “racism,” in 1975, at the UN through the Arab nations’ lobby, and forcing African nations (who many are still ‘slaves’ to their market and power) to go along.
Ever since, the dreadful idea of shouting “racism” grew as a pattern at any defensive action Israel ever takes against Arab racist attacks.
It relies heavily on an assuming image of a poor disadvantaged Arab-Palestinian being persecuted by a paler skinned Israeli.
Though, in reality, most Israelis are “brown,” children of those that have been chased out by bigoted Arabs, in middle-east countries since 1948.
Note: Today, in pluralistic multi-racial democratic Israel there are also a great number of black Ethiopian Jews, very visible in security employment. There are no Jews at all, inside ‘purely-Arab’ Palestinian zones, if there’s true ethnic cleansing in the area, it can be found on the Arab side, including in Arab-Palestine.
Palestinian Muslims (Arafat’s PLO, Syrians and other Muslims), massacre 582 Christians in Damour Lebanon, in a very Islamic spirit of “Allah u Akbar!” and offering a “Holocaust to Muhammad.” It draws a payback by the Christian Phalanges in 1982 in Sabra Shatila (headed by Elie Hobeika, whose fiancee got murdered in Damour), that latter incident has been used in Arab anti-Israel propaganda to blame the Jews for Arab on Arab killings.
150,000 Christians were killed during the war with Muslims since 1975, the Arab Palestinians’ fault in it is major [backing Muslims against Christians].
* The Islamic revolution of January 1979 in Iran impacted the entire region, the oppressive Mullahcracy dictatorship set out to a Shiite expansionism with a vocal anti-western-ism spearheaded by proclaiming the U.S. as the “great Satan” and Israel as the “little one” [its off shoot] (more).
* In March 1979, after a great sacrifice by Israel’s Menachem Begin in giving ‘Yamit‘ to Egypt, uprooting its residents, almost two years after Egypt‘s Sadat came over (November 1977) for a visit in Jerusalem, a peace deal was signed between the two countries.
However, the ugly extreme anti-Jewish pro-violence incitement in Egypt never stopped.
Like every government in Israel’s history, he declared the desire to live in peace with all Arab states. Begin agreed to return to Egypt the strategically critical Sinai — 91 percent of the territory won by Israel during the Six-Day War — in exchange for Sadat’s promise to make peace.
By a strategic give away, giving over the land to Egypt, Israel’s risks included returning to vulnerable areas used by enemies as launching pads for attacks, in addition, it also relinquished direct control of its shipping lanes to and from Eilat, 1,000 miles of roadways, homes, factories, hotels, health facilities and agricultural villages.
On June 7, 1981 Israel carried out the daring air strike destroying Iraq’s nuclear reactor ‘Osirak‘ in an impressive operation, coded “Opera.”
This changed dramatically Saddam’s Iraqi status as a menace. The enormous impact on overall regional stability. As well as on coalition forces’ invasion of 2003.
After a long history of bloody attacks by Arab Palestinians based in Lebanon, Israel is forced to enter Lebanon [‘Peace for the Galilee‘] with an aim to destroy PLO‘s military capability.
In August 21, 1982 PLO evacuated Lebanon.
Israel is [initially] welcomed by many in Lebanon as ‘liberators,’ as the Arab-Palestinians have been prompting more violence between Muslims and Christians.
Sadly enough, the Islamic Republic of Iran founds a militia “Party of Allah” Hezbollah, its goal, establishing a clearly Islamic (totalitarian, oppressive) Shia state in the entire area, with the eradication of Israel.
Hezbollah will use terrorism against Israel, and adopt a tactic of using human shields in order to cause civilian casualties, 18 Years later, a group of ‘4 Mothers’ peace activists in Israel will force its government to withdraw from Lebanon.
Background: Hezbollah –asides from being an extended arm of Iran– is backed by Syria, it is largely funded through blood diamonds (in Africa), drug trafficking & other illegal activities (among Arabs) in Latin America, its bloody record in violence include: Bombing American & French peacekeepers in Lebanon & the US embassy in that country (1983), kidnapping & torture, bombing shopping centers in Paris (1985/1986), hijacking airlines, targeting Israeli civilians, stirring violence in Iraq, Afghanistan & Somalia. Its leader H. Nassrallah had an ‘honesty outburst’ in Oct. (published in Oct/23) 2002, when he said: “If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (More).
First Arab-Palestinian “intifada,” attacking Israeli civilians in all methods possible, sending its youth throwing rocks [that kill] while, often armed adults hide behind these kids. Arab-Muslim Palestinian children are being indoctrinated into a death cult of Jihadism and Shahidism.
The use of children in the war –human bombs and human shields– becomes a routine. [‘Arafat‘s children’]
Palestinian propaganda becomes powerful, as adults shoot live ammunition behind little children’s shoulders, the TV picks up only the images of children throwing rocks VS Israeli soldiers firing back… a twisted around “David VS Goliath.” [When a picture is not worth a thousand words].
Official Arab-Palestinian TV & religious figures incite to violence, it demonizes Jews as “animals.” (“Supported” by radical Islamic theory of seeing Christians as pigs and Jews as apes).
[Examples of incitement: July 2000: “The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until you will fight the Jews and kill them” (Dr. Ahmed Yousuf Abu Halabiyah, member of the Palestinian Sharia [Islamic religious law] Rulings Council, and Director of Advanced Studies, the Islamic University, PA TV, July 28, 2000), October 2000: “Kill them all… we won’t leave a single Jew here.” (Young Girl, PA TV, Oct. 22, 2000), September 2004: “The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!” (Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris, Head of Association for Memorizing the Quran, PA Ministry of Endowments & Religious Affairs, PA TV, September 10, 2004), January 2005: “…and the rock and the tree will say: Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” (Dr. Hassan Khater, founder of Al Quds Encyclopedia PA TV, January 10, 2005).
Palestinian TV – Suliman Sutari, before thousands of chanting fanatics. (July 8, 2005): “Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists. They’re [Allah’s] enemies and the enemies of the religion. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t even leave one.” Little Girl on Palestinian T V: “But I march quickly toward my death.” Little boy on Palestinian T V: “… And we swear to take vengeful blood from our enemies for our killed and wounded.” Muslim cleric Muhsen Abu ‘Ita told Al-Aqsa TV: “The annihilation of the Jews here in Palestine is one of the most splendid blessings for Palestine. This will be followed by a greater blessing, Allah be praised, with the establishment of a Caliphate.” Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris: “Kill A Jew –Go To Heaven” The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!” From a Fatah/PA TV Nazi-Like Sermon in 2010: “Fight The Jews & Kill Them — They Are Enemies Of Humanity & Allah”].
Palestinians (like Hezbollah) “document” every defensive action by Israel, where the Arabs manage to cause civilian deaths, as “Israeli massacres.”
* Saddam Hussein, the ‘Butcher of Baghdad’ (nicknamed as such for his extraordinary record [in recent history] of mass-murder, mass-torture) invades Kuwait, the U.S. attacks Iraq, Saddam, in return, takes on Israel –for being U.S. ally– with a rain of scuds missiles, fear in Israel and abroad (as it’s still “fresh” – a merely 3 Years after the racist cruel pan-Arab leader gassed his Kurdish population). Miraculously there are no casualties.
* The Oslo agreement between Israel & the Arab-Palestinians proved to be typical of such negotiations where the demands & pressure is put solely on Israel – the one struggling against Arab initiated violence.
The result, not only did it slow down but it rather increased, Arab-Palestinian campaign of violence against Israeli civilians only stepped up mobilization, motivation rose, attacks intensified. Causing frustration among Israelis, Rabin is seen as endangering lives, which led a lone gunman to assassinate him later on.
* When the Oslo Agreements allowed the Palestinian Authority (PA) to print their own resources, it opted to use the Jordanian texts in their original forms. This was the start of the process of incitement. The starting mottos was rewriting history, de-legitimizing Israel’s right to exist, “Palestine” is part of pan-Islamic nation.
The hate industry, instilling flaming-hatred in the young, has become one of the foundations in their overall child-abuse crimes, in a culture of using its children as weapons, child soldiers.
[Textbooks of hate:
Some excerpts from the Arab racism & Islamic bigotry teaching: “The return of the Jews to Palestine and permitting them to establish a Jewish State contradicts history.” (Our Country Palestine from the introduction, pg. ix) – The book is dedicated to: “those who are battling for the expulsion of the enemy from our land!” (Our Country Palestine) – “There will be a Jihad and our country shall be freed. This is our story with the thieving conquerors. You must know, my boy, that Palestine is your grave responsibility.” (Our Arabic Language) – “Remember: The final and inevitable result will be the victory of the Muslims over the Jews.” (Our Arabic Language) – “The honorable soul has two objectives: Achieving death and honor.” (Abd al-Rahim Mahmud’s Song of the Martyr, Sixth Grade) – “The Martyr rejoices in the paradise that Allah has prepared for him.” (Islamic Education for Seventh Grade) – “The Jews claim that this is one of the places belonging to them and call it “The Western Wall”, but this is not so.” (Reader and Literary Texts for Eighth Grade) – “Racism: Mankind has suffered from this evil both in ancient as well as in modern times, for, indeed, Satan has, in the eyes of many people, made their evil actions appear beautiful.Such a people are the J–s.” (Islamic Education for Eighth Grade) – “Lessons to be learned. One must beware of the J–s, for they are treacherous and disloyal.” (Islamic Education for Ninth Grade) – “Subject for Composition: How are we going to liberate our stolen land? Make use of the following ideas: Arab unity, genuine faith in Allah, most modern weapons and ammunition, using oil and other precious natural resources as weapons in the battle for liberation.” (Our Arabic Language for Seventh Grade) – “Martyred Jihad fighters are the most honored people, after the Prophets.” (Reading And Literary Texts for Tenth Grade) – “The clearest examples of racist belief and racial discrimination in the world are Nazism and Zionism.” (The Contemporary History of the Arabs and the World).]
* July, 1994, The Iranian arm ‘Hezbollah‘ bombs the civilian Jewish center in Argentina [AMIA, the terror group also attacked the embassy in that country 2 years prior], massacring 85 and wounding 300.
The Iranian Imam Mohsen Rabbani says (in Argentina, at the aftermath of the bombing): “Israel must disappear from the face of the Earth.”
The terror attack by Arab-Muslims on Jews in the diaspora, heightened the alert, internationally.
* Oct. 1994, Israel’s Y. Rabin signs a peace treaty with Jordan, the Palestinian-Arab masses inside Jordan (who make up 60% of Jordanians) and in Israel/Palestine area are angered, Hamas vows to continue its campaign of violence “anywhere in the world.”
[As with the “peace-treaty” with Egypt, anti-Jewish campaign, is relentless (more).]
A planned renewal of another wave of bloody violent Intifada was in place, an opportunity to “let it out” came about when Sharon visited the Jewish temple mount, Muslims seized the opportunity to “protest” Sharon’s visit in “their holy place.”
All is fair play to be exploited for terrorism against Israelis. It’s own population: women, children. Even ambulances.
Arafat now had a “perfect” title, in order to galvanize global Islamic support, his people named it the “Al Aqsa Intifada.” The Al-Aqsa is of course the mosque, which Muslims build on top of the historic Jewish temple.
It was boosted up by a staged video, therein an Arab boy Muhammad al-Dura –who as exposed later on as being– shot by Arabs, was mistakenly pinned on Israel. Al-Dura becomes a symbol and an icon and motivates to more violence.
* The Ramallah brutal lynch of 2 Israelis –who lost their way– by Arab Palestinian masses and its police in public square, the sheer animalism of mutilating and “playing” with their body parts while screaming in inhuman ways, revealed the real face of mainstream Arab-Muslim Palestine.
They were describe by a British journalist eyewitness: “they were like animals.” The Italian crew who filmed the crime was threatened by Arafat‘s people.
(Suicide) Genocide bombings rise, targeting ‘where civilians gather the most,’ to kill as many unarmed Jews as possible.
Among the perpetrators of terror attacks: Hamas, (Iran’s) Islamic Jihad, Tanzim, Fatah’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade [still (2010) exist under Abu Mazen].
A rise of the use of children, use-of-civilians tactics “succeeds” in making Israel look bad.
* Demonization of Israel takes an open anti-Semitic tone at that infamous racist Arab control gathering in Durban in denouncing Zionism (an Arab writer described the Arabs as “racists cry racism“), the Arabs passed along anti Jewish hateful pamphlets at the United Nations.
First vicious successful propaganda of adopting the slur “apartheid” to Israel’s equal democratic state, it followed the above “racism” slur on Zionism.
Arab Palestinian Marwan Bishara published a book (in 2002) “Israel, peace or apartheid.”
The idea behind it was/is to equate any understandable action by Israeli security as “racist” and de-legitimizing its existence just as S. Africa was at the apartheid (segregation between blacks & whites) era, while in fact, there’s no separation between Jews and Arabs (who make up 25% of equal citizens) in Israel, and Jews are required to get through check points just as Arabs do, security tactics are regional, where terrorism is more frequent, nothing “racial.”
Not only are Arabs equal citizens in voting, being elected in government, but have often more rights than Israeli Jews, as they’re exempt from military services without having an effect on their equal benefits as Israeli Jews have, there’s also a policy of affirmative action to empower Arabs.
In 100% apartheid Arab-Palestine, no Jews are allowed to live in.
Not to mention the Arab, Islamic worlds, where real apartheid is rampant against minorities.
Worth reminding that it was A. Shukairy in 1961 at the UN who already came up with the “apartheid” false thesis.
A major boost got the “apartheid” slur, through a (2006) book by Jimmy Carter with a title almost identical to M. Bishara’s, Carter who was always pro Arabism and pro Islamism on the expense of the west, including in Iran, and has been blamed for the change in that country towards the current oppressive Islamic Republic regime resulting in so many crimes on the millions of its citizens since 1979.
Even though, Jimmy Carter himself admitted on CNN (Dec, 12, 2006): “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.” Yet he accepted Arab lobby’s money to write that hate book.
* Ordinary Arab Palestinians show their true face of “humanity” by celebrating –dancing, singing, giving out candies to children– the 9/11 Islamic massacre upon 3,000 innocent people in the U.S.
* The height of homicide bombers‘ frequency – between 2002-2005, striking from Tel Aviv to Naharia, from Jerusalem to Be’er Sheva, targeting mostly the innocent unarmed civilians, aboard crowded buses, at bus stops, markets, restaurants, cafeterias, family gatherings, crowds of children, etc. Leaving a long trail of blood of the innocent.
“Joy” on Arab-Palestine streets, dance & jubilation at every major bloody massacre the Arab-Muslims carry out.
* Pallywood –the term coined due to Palestinian-Arabs’ fake images, fake “reports” industry– steps up with “advanced” lies.
As the Israeli army conducts its anti-terror action in Jenin, where bombers, attackers operate from, the humane IDF is risking its lives, the careful soldiers go from door to door in search of weapons and wanted individuals, all that doesn’t prevent the Palestine authority to stream false reports, of “hundreds” dead in a “massacre” that never was… some were caught faking a “funeral,” they’ve even added dead bodies from a cemetery to the Jenin site to inflate the numbers at the “massacre.”
After the facts [real casualties numbering 50 plus, mostly terrorists, not “civilians“] were finally revealed, no Arab-Palestinian representative bothered to apologize, PA’s Saeb Erekat simply avoided the question by a [TV, ABC] reporter as to their claims of “500” dead…
On the contrary, the Arab-Palestine leadership have learned that it works pretty well: to lie, smear, before the facts come out, never ever paying for their anti-Israel falsification.
Thus, it will be repeated, again and again, by every Israeli action, to their advantage, still.
* Israel gives away Gaza to the Arab Palestinians, as it roots out Jews from their homes in a most dramatic (non violent) way, this causes not a moderation on the Arab side, on the contrary, Islamic Jihadi Hamas rises as “victorious,” again [like all Israel’s concessions], the Arab side’s taking Israel’s sacrifice for peace as “weakness.”
* The patron of Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s president M. Ahmadinejad (1) calls for Israel to be wiped off map, (2) he also claims that he “denies” the holocaust and (3) pursues nuclear weapons.
In 2007, he said: ‘Israel, US will soon die.’
Note: Regarding Ahmadinejad’s use of Arab-Palestinians. Iran’s Islamic Republic is not very fond of the Arabs, in fact it has frictions with S. Arabia & it persecutes its Arab minority (true, the fascist regime oppresses all, but minorities are subject to extra “special treatment”).
* To get a sense of Arab racism in most “moderate” countries, a PEW poll found in 2005 that most Jordanians viewed Jews unfavorably, none has viewed Jews favorably.
Hezbollah attacks Israel [its missiles reach deep inside Israel], it “improves” Palestinian tactics of using civilians, by firing rockets upon Israeli civilians (in major Israeli cities/towns) from among populated density locations, then, cowardly escaping the area, causing Israelis to fire back. The intended Lebanese casualties cause an uproar in the Arab world, Hezbollah comes out as “heroes.”
Mainstream Arabs in Gaza go radical, vote for totalitarian Islamic party Hamas to become their “democratically elected government.”
A major gathering follows, where thousands of Arab-Palestinians (with a Hamas spokesman) declare they want an Islamic Caliphate.
[About ‘Caliphate’ (Khilafah):
The intention, endlessly repeated, is the establishment of a primitive, messianic caliphate — redeeming Islam and dominating the world.
For radical Islam’s goal is global conquest. The Caliphate: One nation, under Allah, with 1.5 billion Muslims …It would do away with national boundaries and stretch from Indonesia to Morocco.
The ‘Muslim brotherhood’ aims for it and its Islamists who assassinated Anwar el-Sadat in 1981 decorated their holding cages with banners proclaiming the “caliphate or death.”
It’s Al-Qaeda’s grand plan, as its chiefs revealed ‘world domination design’ to take over the world and turn it into an Islamic state the establishment of the “caliphate,” an Islamic super-state that would be ruled according to a Taliban-like version of Islamic totalitarian with strict ‘implementation of pure Islamic doctrine.’ Barak Obama (August, 2007): “They [Muslim extremists] kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.”]
Christians, the tiny minority among the Arabs, who have been subject to persecution by the Islamic majority (Islamic apartheid?), especially since the reign of Y. Arafat, saw a major rise in oppression with the ascend of Hamas, a number of Christian institutions and members have been attacked or/and threatened.
The Jihadi party, has been involved in major anti Israel attacks, its charter calls for the destruction of Israel, its leaders often declare (including on “moderate” Fatah TV) their desire to annihilate Jews, a sample video showed a Hamas-nick vowing to “drink the blood of the Jews.” In 2007 Hamas’ Mickey Mouse’ (“martyr”) character is teaching Kids to hate and kill, in 2008 On Hamas TV, a toy rabbit who vows to ‘eat Jews’ has being used by Hamas to encourage Palestinian children for violence. Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Sheik Ahmad Bahr from Hamas, declared during a Friday Sermon at a Sudan Mosque that America and Israel Will Be Annihilated and Called upon Allah to Kill the Jews and the Americans ‘to the Very Last One.’ (More.)
A 2007 Poll: 75% of (all) Palestinians do not think that Israel has the right to exist.
* Israel’s first Arab president. M. Whbee is briefly serving Israel’s acting president. Israel is indeed a multi-racial, multi-religious democracy.
Vs. Arab-Islamic apartheid systems, where all minorities are oppressed..
After 8 years of firing missiles into Israel by Arab-Palestinian leadership – Hamas, especially targeting children (programmed at certain hours when they go to/leave school) in Sderot, Israel decided it had enough, it kicks off ‘Cast lead.‘ Risking the lives of its soldiers in conducting operations against terrorists and weapons stock-piling inside Gaza, and warning the residents to evacuate (clear the way, and move to other areas) before hand. Yet, it was still condemned.
By now, Hamas is not shy in bragging of using children as human shields.
Arab Muslim anti-Israel propaganda picks up steam, as the current motto is to “make Jews look bad” so they can justify their hatred and create the foundation for their intended ultimate goal of genocide.
A supposed “peace activism” designed to help the Hamas in Gaza who have been blockaded (after their continuous attacks on Israel’s civilians, in order to stop their weapon smuggling), has been organizing “aid ships” heading to Gaza and confront Israeli security, [incidentally, there are no “aid ships” heading towards the Egyptian border, though that country has the same blockade on the violent Gaza regime, for no one in the Arab-Islamic world cares about Arab-Palestinians, unless it can hurt Israel, a “sacred” goal by leaders, religious clerics, etc.], one such ship, the Flotilla had a major success in damning Israel’s image, after violently attacking the Israelis (who came aboard to check for weapons), 9 Muslims died, an uproar against Israel came about.
Later on, the true intentions of the Islamists on board were revealed, as they were filmed shouting: ‘kill the Jews for Allah’ and in an earlier defying radio exchange with the Israelis who warned them of entering Israeli territory the response from the Islamists aboard the ship was “Shut up! Go back to Auchwitz!… We help the Arabs, Remember 9/11!”
There were also revelations that Islamists planned the entire event as “martyrdom.”
The Flotilla was organized by the radical Islamic Turkish group IHH, tied to terrorism, Turkish president Mr. Erdogan who’s representing the Islamic party (linked to the Flotilla), was looking for some time to break his country’s alliance with Israel. He also objected to UN’s sanctions against Iran for not complying with regards to its nuclear program.
Radicalization of Turkey, in an already volatile region.
In 2011, the UN justified Israel’s action on the Flotilla as well as its blockade against Gaza’s Hamas. Which infuriated Turkey even more.
* September 9, 2011, Arab-Muslim mob in Cairo, Egypt attack the Israeli embassy while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” A CNN [which is never accused of being pro-Israel] reporter described them “they were animals.”
It was following an uprising that toppled the Mubarak regime (where by, at the celebration, hundreds of Arabs, in public, sexually attacked CBS reporter Lara Logan screaming “Jew, Jew!”) the rise of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood” and anti-Israel incitement. A BBC journalist also described how he was subject to anti-Semitism in that country, during this period.
* September 13. Maen Areikat PLO‘s ambassador to the U.S. declares in Washington D.C. a future “Palestine” State should be “Jew free” (judenrein). This ethnic – religious cleansing (worse than Apartheid) plan causes a major uproar. Especially in light of the intentional REAL apartheid, Vs. Arab-Islamic constant use of the “apartheid slur” unjustifiably.
Note: “Palestinian” PM Mahmoud Abbas’ such racist declaration of a “Palestine” State free of Jews (not even ANY Jews under NATO!) in Cairo on July 28 2010, as well as in Doha on May 28, 2011, caused less of a stir. Particularly, since this 2011 publicized event took place within days before a “Palestinian” plan for a bid at the UN for a separated [all new] State.
Actually, this has always been “Palestinian” stand, A. Shukairy on June 1, 1967: “This is a fight for the homeland-it is either us or the. Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure.”
In short, in 100 Words…
Israel [the multi-racial, equal democracy], its Jewish returnees to their historic homeland, face genocide campaign [at times “just” ethnic cleansing] by Arab-Muslims since the 1920’s. Whether by Arab immigrants, their children – called “Palestinians,” or by [apartheid, almost Judenrein] Arab/Muslim forces [exploiters of Arab-Palestinians] for: power, sheer anti-Jewish hatred [exemplified through dehumanization/incitement], or as part of an overall Jihad towards world domination.
Motivation: Islamic bigotry, Jihad, Arab racism.
The aggressors (Palestinians/Hezbollah) self-made “victims” falsify information/images, define lost battles, casualties resulting from Islamists using civilians (to make humane Israel look bad), as “massacres.”

Arab Spring may be good for Israel after all – Ha’aretz – July 1, 2011
By Amos Harel
Arab Spring may be good for Israel after all
Even Arab analysts who witnessed the changes in the region up close recognize that forecasting the future is futile. But that doesn’t mean they don’t see recent events as a cause for elation… as Aluf Benn described in these pages a week ago: a weakening of the radical-Shi’ite axis if the Syrian regime is overthrown, Turkey distancing itself from Iran and Syria, and a continuation of Israel’s decent relations with Egypt.
The Arab led slur of “apartheid” [a tactic of diverting attention from the largely Arab leaders’ fault in Arabs’ condition, as well as general Arab oppression of its people and discrimination against minorities, with the aim of de-legitimizing Israel’s quest for survival, as if Israel’s security and defense has anything to do with “race”], dates back to an October 1961 speech by Saudi Arabia’s Ahmad Shukairy during a strongly anti-Western chide. He went as far as to object Israel’s right to try Nazi extermination chief of WW2: Adolf Eichmann.
[It was amidst a season of strong UN condemnation of South Africa, thus, the Arab icon came up with a tactic of defamation by fictitious comparison to S. Africa’s system.]
That’s almost 6 years before the so-called “occupation” came about, yet it was picked up by Arab propaganda machine ever since, and has been “adjusted” to any situation between Israel and its Arab attackers. Demagogue-like symbolism [like the security fence] have been used and included to be “updated,” to make the criminal propaganda seem somehow “legitimate.”
* Ahmad Shukari (1908-1980) was born in Lebanon.
* Served as an aide to infamous Haj Amin al-Husseini Hitler’s ally [the Mufti, who called to ‘kill the Jews wherever you find them,’ and prevented Jewish children from being rescued during WW2]. He himself admired Nazism and with the Mufti assisted in ideas of extermination.
* Became assistant Secretary General for the Arab League from 1950–56.
* Served as Saudi Arabia’s representative to the UN from 1957-1962.
* Famous for his 1956 admission to the falsehood of a “Palestinian” (distinct) people, or Palestine as a “separate” Arab entity.
* His openly pro-Nazism was expressed in 1962 at the UN while praising a Nazi group.
* Spearheaded the major shift in Arab strategy in the “creation” of a “Palestine entity” in 1963 (as mentioned, as late as 1957, Shukairy himself pleaded on behalf of “Palestine” as nothing but a part of Syria), seeing that the collective Arab VS Israel war lacks support. It was to tap into the anti-colonialism that spread in the UN with the fight in Algeria and to suggest parallels, in order to gather support among Africans.
* Was the first to head the PLO in 1964. In [his] then “Palestinian” original charter, there’s no call for a “homeland” or so-called “rights,” but as part of a ‘pan-Arab’ struggle.
* Known for his hate speeches.
* Was very instrumental in the six-day war of June 1967 by collective Arab nations whose leaders, like Shukairy called to annihilate Israel.
* Coined the [extermination] phrase: “Driving the Jews unto the sea.” [‘Throwing the Jews into the sea’]
* Years before the “occupation” (what is referred to Israel’s victory over Arab aggression in 1967) he called for “liberation” (of what?)
There you have it, Arab racism, Nazism and Arab genocide hiding behind “liberation,” has invented the “apartheid” meme against its victim: Israel.
The typical hypocritical element of “accusing” Israel with the crime of the Arabs, that of “nazism” was also encapsulated by this Arab-Nazi mastermind of ‘Arab-Palestine’ in his elaborated opposition to try Eichmann.

PRO-NAZISM – PRAISING NAZIS
When Hitler became Abu Ali
By Julian Schvindlerman – June 7, 2002
Nazi slogans were translated into Arabic. A Mideast song popular toward the end of the 1930s crooned: “No more Monsieur, no more Mister. In Heaven Allah, on earth Hitler.” The Fuehrer himself was even Islamicized under the new name of Abu Ali.
Love of Nazism spread like wildfire in the region. Among the many Nazi sympathizers at the time were Haj Amin al-Husseini (Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and president of the Arab Higher Committee); Ahmed Shukairi (first chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization); Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anwar Sadat (both future presidents of Egypt); Islamic fundamentalist leaders; and the founders of the Pan-Arab socialist Ba’ ath party, currently ruling Syria and Iraq. (One Ba’ath leader proudly recounted: “We were racists, admiring Nazism, reading their books and sources of their thought. We were the first who thought of translating Mein Kampf.”).

THE INVENTION OF A “PALESTINE ENTITY” – 1963
Congress bi-weekly: Volume 31 – American Jewish Congress – 1964 – Snippet view
The “Palestine Entity” JOSEPH B. SCHECHTMAN … NOTABLE AND LARGELY overlooked — feature of the present-day strategy of Arab states with regard to the Palestine Arabs is the emphasis on the “Palestine Entity” (Al- Kiyan Al-Falastin). It represents a major departure from the policy the Arab governments had pursued during the decade following the establishment of Israel. Throughout that period, Arab states’ delegations in the United Nations acted as the sole…
… In 1960, the Arab states submitted to the 1 6th Assembly session a request for a hearing for “the Palestine [instead of “a Palestinian”] Arab delegation,” this time of ten persons. At the 17th session, thirteen persons were listed, and they were described as “the Palestine Arab Delegation representing the views of the Palestine Arab people.” Mr. Gallin-Douathe, of the Central African Republic, was puzzled by this procedure, and asked how could there be a “Palestine Arab Delegation” when there was no longer a country called Palestine. The committee chairman, Dr. Leopold Benites of Ecuador, somewhat impatiently answered that he could not go into the substance of the problem. The Israel delegation did not press the point, and a Mufti henchman, Emile El- Ghouri, was permitted to present the Arab refugees’ case. At the 18th session ( 1963), representatives of all the 13 Arab League states submitted a fresh request (UN document A/SPC/89), this time for 18 persons described as as “the Palestine Arab Delegation representing the Arab people of Palestine, the principal party to the Palestine question.” Shukairy was listed as chairman of this body, and was invited to address the Special Political Committee.
It authorized him to lead a “Palestine Arab Delegation” of his Own selection that would plead the cause of “Palestine” at the UN.
Shukairy’s emergence as a central figure in the struggle for the “Palestine Entity” is a matter of concern. He vehemently advocates the establishment of a ” Palestine Government-in-Exile” and has announced his willingness to head such a government if it receives the financial, military and political support of the Arab states..
It would be a grave mistake to underestimate the significance and dangers of the latest shift in the Arab strategy. The Arab states seem to have realized the increasing unpopularity of their open war threats against Israel in the prevailing climate of “peaceful coexistence.” The resurrection of a “Palestine Entity” with a “Government-in-Exile” would create a convenient instrument for aggressive propaganda, since it would seek to link in the public mind Algeria and Palestine and tap the anti-colonialist feelings that are so strong in the UN. By equating the plight of the refugees with that of the still unliberated peoples of Africa they confidently expect to enlist the sympathy of the Afro-Asian delegations. The “Palestine Entity” device must be viewed in the light of these considerations. It should no longer be regarded as a mere question of procedural formality but as a most dangerous weapon for exploiting Middle East tensions.

HIS “PALESTINIAN” CHARTER CALLS FOR A ‘PAN-ARAB’ STRUGGLE NOT A SEPARATE “HOMELAND”
The Original Palestine National Charter…
This Covenant was written by the first Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Ahmed Shukeiry. This version of the PLO Charter reflects the Pan-Arab nationalism espoused by then, Egyptian President Jamal Abd El-Nasir. This can be clearly seen in the emphasis on the view of Palestine as part of an Arab collective homeland. The pan-Arab objective in the Arab-Israeli conflict is rather pervasive – the destruction (al-qada-ala) of Israel. However, noticeably missing is the call for a Palestinian state and the subordinate position of the Palestinians in what is expressed as a battle for their rights and homeland.

The “central issue,” he asserted, is that there can be no solution until the Arab governments abandon their opposition to integrating the refugees into the economic life of the Near East.

Founding the Palestine Liberation Organization Coining the phrase: ‘Throwing the Jews into the sea’
What led to the founding of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964?
In 1964 the Arab League, a loose confederation of fourteen Arab countries including Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon, met in Cairo and established a political body to deal directly with the problem of the Palestinian Arabs. They called it the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The PLO’s first leader was an Egyptian, Ahmed Shukairy. He coined the organization’s famous slogan about “driving the Jews into the sea.” He is also remembered for saying on May 31, 1956, to the UN Security Council:
It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but Southern Syria. So what were they “liberating”? From whom? There were no “occupied territories” and no “illegal settlements” at that time, and Jordan controlled East Jerusalem. The PLO was intent on the destruction of Israel without any of the causes or reasons they now claim are fundamental. Their emblem includes a map — Israel is part of their concept of Palestine.

The formula “to throw Israel into the sea” certainly does not mean that only the State coat-of-arms will be flung into the water while the Israelis continue to dwell in the land each under his vine and under his fig tree, especially as the less ambiguous term “to throw the Jews into the sea”- which has an undoubted genocidal signficance — is quite frequent. Genocidal motifs may also be seen in the typical caricature which depicts the liquidation of Israel as the killing of a scorpion, or for example the text of a manifesto published in al-Ahram (February 3, 1964) for distribution among the Jews of the world to warn them against migrating to Israel, describing such a move as a “free” one-way road to death, and making the point unmistakably clear with the aid of a drawing showing the Angel of Death with his sickle.
The Arab goal, furthermore, is presented as not only a change in the political status of the country, but also a matter of punishment and revenge. Since the establishment of Israel is denounced as an international crime, her extinction must be carried out as a punitive operation and a massacre.

THE BANNER OF “LIBERATION” BEFORE THE SO-CALLED “OCCUPATION” / INDEED, TERRORISM CAME BEFORE THE “OCCUPATION”

Op-ed: Palestinian enmity towards Jews not about borders but about Israel’s existence
Martin Sherman Published: 01.19.11, 18:11 / Israel Opinion
Israel is continuously accused by its detractors of “occupying” Palestinian territory and “usurping” Palestinian land by means of an “expansionary settlement policy.” “Occupation” and “Settlements” have thus become the buzzwords by which to denote and defame Israel’s control of the territories across the 1967 armistices lines. This prevailing custom is wildly at odds with the realities that forced Israel to seize these territories in an unequivocal act of self-defense against threats of annihilation, in a classic preemptive exercise of the right of “anticipatory self defense.”
So, as the Arab armies massed against it, Israel began to brace itself for the coming war, preparing mass graves in Tel Aviv and other cities in anticipation of large civilian causalities. On May 27, 1967, the then-chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Ahmed Shukairy, gloated, “D-Day is approaching. The Arabs have waited 19 years for this and will not flinch from the war of liberation.”
The use of the word “liberation” is both interesting and revealing. At the time, the notions of “occupation” and “settlements” had neither conceptual significance nor practical relevance and could not account for this ferocious hostility towards the Jewish nation-state by the Arabs who clearly were not seeking “liberation” in Arab-ruled Gaza and “West Bank.” Impressed by this boastful bluster, and despite the bitter acrimony between Nasser and himself, King Hussein signed a military pact with Egypt on May 30, 1967, declaring:
“All of the Arab armies now surround Israel. The UAR (the United Arab Republic, the name by which Egypt called itself from 1958 to 1971), Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Yemen, Lebanon, Algeria, Sudan, and Kuwait. …. There is no difference between one Arab people and another, no difference between one Arab army and another.”
In a premature flush of triumph, on June 1, 1967, PLO leader Shukairy crowed: “This is a fight for the homeland. It is either us or the Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure to their former homes. Any of the old Palestine Jewish population who survive may stay, but it is my impression that none of them will survive….We shall destroy Israel and its inhabitants and as for the survivors – if there are any – the boats are ready to deport them.”
Here again Shukairy’s terminology is of interest. For quite apart from the explicit articulation of his bloodcurdling intentions, the use of “homeland” is instructive and illuminating. For it clearly did not refer to “West Bank” or to Gaza which, as previously mentioned, were under Arab rule and were certainly in no way targeted for “liberation.” Cleary then, “the liberation of the homeland” must be construed as “the elimination of the Jewish state.” Indeed, how else could be construed.
This view is strongly endorsed by the text of the original formulation of the Palestinian Covenant adopted in 1964, before any “occupation” or “settlements” were ever part of the discourse, much less facts on the ground. In Article 24, it specifically eschews claims to “any territorial sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (sic) and Gaza.”
What more authoritative source could be imagined for exposing the Palestinian claims to the West Bank and Gaza as bogus than the Palestinian themselves? The source being their own “National Covenant” no less.

IRAN – HEZBOLLAH TIES TO THE 9/11 MASSACRE
Iran should pay damages, 9/11 family members say
May 21, 2011 Associated Press
NEW YORK — Lawyers representing 9/11 families are asking a federal judge to find Iran culpable in the Sept. 11 terror attacks, saying new evidence shows Iranian officials had advanced word of the attacks and helped train the hijackers.
The lawyers filed papers Thursday in US District Court in Manhattan saying there is “clear and convincing’’ evidence to conclude default judgment damages should be paid to their plaintiffs — families and personal representatives of some of those killed in the attacks…
The lawyers said Iran and “its proxy terrorist organization,’’ the Lebanese group Hezbollah, entered into a terrorist alliance with Al Qaeda in the early 1990s that continued throughout the preparations for the 2001 attacks.

Court filings advance claim Iran aided 9/11 hijackers
Posted: 05/24/2011 9:01 AM
Lawyers for seven family members of Philadelphia-area victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks filed new documents Thursday in long-running litigation that they say provide clear evidence the government of Iran aided the hijackers.
Included in the court filings are affidavits from 9/11 Commission staff members alleging that the Iran government directly aided the attack by facilitating the movement of 9/11 hijacking team members through Iran.
The 9/11 Commission, in its June 16, 2004, report, said that senior al-Qaeda operatives had long maintained contact with Iranian intelligence officials and that there was “strong evidence” that Iranian border officials had facilitated their passage through the country on their way to Afghanistan. The commission said there was evidence that Iranian government officials had agreed not to stamp the passports of traveling al-Qaeda operatives.
They would have been barred from the United States had their documents shown travel in Iran, which the U.S. government had designated as a state supporter of terrorism. Despite those findings, the commission stopped short of directly implicating Iran and its proxy in southern Lebanon, the militant group Hezbollah, long linked with terrorist attacks around the world, in the attacks.
“Developing evidence of Iran’s involvement with al-Qaeda regarding the events of 9/11 is like putting together a large jigsaw puzzle where many of the parts are missing and never will be found,” said the plaintiffs’ lawyer Thomas E. Mellon Jr. of Doylestown.
But, he added, “over the last nine years, after interviewing dozens of people, reviewing hundreds of documents, and consulting with many experts in the field, we have developed a strong evidentiary case of Iran’s involvement.”
The lawsuit was filed in 2002 in federal District Court in Manhattan. Among the plaintiffs are Ellen Saracini of Bucks County, wife of Victor Saracini, captain of United Flight 175, the second aircraft to hit the World Trade Center, and Fiona Havlish, formerly of Bucks County and now of Boulder, Colo., whose husband also died in the attacks.
Mellon cites affidavits from Janice L. Kephart, a former counsel to the 9/11 Commission who focused on the ways the hijackers evaded border security, and former federal prosecutor Dietrich Snell, also a former 9/11 staff lawyer.
“In sum, it is my expert opinion that there is clear and convincing evidence that Iran and Hezbollah provided material support to al-Qaeda by actively facilitating the travel of eight to 10 of the 9/11 hijackers to Iran and Beirut,” Kephart said…

In spite of the attempts by Lebanon, Syria, and Iran to present Hezbollah as a legitimate resistance movement fighting for the liberation of Israeli occupied territories, Nasrallah himself declared in an interview on December 18, 2001 that “to earn victory we have to fight on all fronts. We have to be global and integral.”
Traces of Hezbollah’s global strategy can even be found in the United States. In July 2000, US federal agents arrested 18 alleged supporters of Hezbollah, suspected of participating in a ring that raised and sent funds and military equipment, including night vision equipment, global positioning devices, mine detection equipment, cellular phones, and blasting equipment, to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sweden’s Sapo intelligence agency identified 15 people in Sweden who had direct links with al-Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorist organizations. They were suspected of assisting the terrorist organizations with information, communications, and financing. In June 2002, Singapore accused Hezbollah of recruiting Singaporeans in a failed 1990s plot to attack US and Israeli ships in the Singapore Straits.
Various Islamic extremist organizations have firmly established themselves in what is known as the “tri-border area,” where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay converge, with Hezbollah holding a strong presence. Experts believe that Hezbollah earns substantial income from various illicit activities in the tri-border area, in addition to financial support from the government of Iran and income derived from narcotics trafficking in Lebanon’s Al Beqa’a Valley.
Apart from its international activities, Hezbollah’s stronghold is in Lebanon, where it serves as an Iranian proxy and trains thousands of activists in villages located in the Beqa’a valley, in Beirut, and in southern Lebanon…
Hezbollah managed to rocket Israeli cities throughout the 34-day conflict and, despite its losses, has been able to restore its militant and political standing in Lebanon.
The Iran–Hezbollah–al-Qaeda Connection
Today, Iran is the most active state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Shiite cooperation between Iran and its terrorist proxy Hezbollah dates as far back as 1983, when Hezbollah suicide bombers attacked American and French peacekeeping forces in Lebanon. The cooperation has yet to cease.
The joint Shiite–Sunni venture between Iran, Hezbollah, and al-Qaeda against the West has also been evident on a number of occasions…
