Netanyahu versus Einstein

Paul Eidelberg

In a message honoring the heroes of the Warsaw ghetto, Albert Einstein declared:

The Germans as an entire people are responsible for the mass murders and must be punished as a people if there is justice in the world and if the consciousness of collective responsibility in the nations is not to perish from the earth entirely. Behind the Nazi party stands the German people, who elected Hitler after he had in his book [Mein Kampf] and in his speeches made his shameful [genocidal] intentions clear beyond the possibility of misunderstanding.

The Constitution of the Palestinian Authority calls for “The complete liberation of Palestine and the economic, political, military and cultural elimination of Zionism.” Only fools would fail to see in these words the genocidal objective of the Palestinian Authority. Is not the meaning of this Arab imperative “clear beyond the possibility of misunderstanding”?

Did not the Palestinian Arabs repeatedly hear Yasser Arafat chanting Jihad against Israel and elect him as their Fuhrer? But then, should they not be held collectively responsible for the brutal murder and maiming of more than 10,000 Jews perpetrated by their government, now headed by Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas? And should they not be punished, as Einstein said of the German people, “if there is justice in the world and if the consciousness of collective responsibility in the nations is not to perish from the earth entirely”?

Is it not clear beyond the possibility of misunderstanding that the Palestinians have used Arab children as human bombs to butcher Jewish men, women, and children?

Is it not clear beyond the possibility of misunderstanding that Palestinians have taught generation after generation of Arab children to hate Jews and exalt those who kill them?

Yet Prime Minister Netanyahu would reward these Palestinians with statehood!

Albert Einstein was a gentle man, very much inclined to pacifism. But above and beyond his desire for peace was his desire for justice.

United States Wants "Clarification" of the Taking Out of Three "Palestinian" Terrorists

from Israpundit

Washington, not J’lem, needs to issue clarifications


The United States’ recent request for a public clarification from National Security Adviser Uzi Arad following the IDF’s killing of three wanted Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorists in Nablus is unusual and raises questions.

Arad’s reported need to explain to his US counterparts the defensive nature of the IDF operation several days after the Iranian-backed terror cell’s murder of Rabbi Meir Chai, a father of seven, seems exceptional. This IDF operation was no different than hundreds of other actions against Palestinian terror groups that have murdered well over 1,000 Israeli civilians since the Palestinian Authority launched the Aksa war of terror in 2000.

As a rule, the US has not asked Israel for public clarifications on antiterror operations. Clearly, close communications are important. There are multiple security and intelligence channels between Israel and its closest ally that have been and should be used to handle these types of security queries. The Israeli Embassy in Washington, the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, the US consulate in Jerusalem, military attaches and representatives of respective intelligence agencies are appropriate addresses.

But in this extraordinary case, the US demanded a public clarification on behalf of the PA. This clearly represents heightened US sensitivity to Palestinian protests over the IDF’s “unjust” incursion into Area A of Judea and Samaria/the West Bank, where the PA has overall security responsibility, to net the Fatah-associated terror cell that resulted in its elimination.

THIS IS where it seems more appropriate that the US issue clarifications to Israel. At least one of the Aksa Brigades commanders - Annan Sabuh, who was found with two M16 automatic rifles and two other firearms - had been part of the amnesty program for former Fatah-affiliated terror group commanders and operatives that was predicated on turning in all weapons. The amnesty program was implemented in no small part at the behest of the United States and its security reform program, which began under Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton in 2005.

Notwithstanding IDF praise for PA public policing improvements in some West Bank cities and for PA security actions against Hamas, the American-trained and -funded Palestinian security forces under the command of PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad have either refused or been unable to uproot the terror infrastructure of the Fatah-associated Aksa Martyrs Brigades. Similar to the three recently neutralized terrorists, thousands of additional Aksa Martyrs operatives and other Fatah militia members have gone into “retirement” via the amnesty agreement with the PA security forces and their US security coordinators, but many operatives still store weapons in their homes. US security officials may also be aware that some Fatah terror operatives have even been sheltered in PA security installations to remove them from Israel’s most wanted list.

Fayyad has also coopted some Aksa commanders by assigning them to senior positions in the PA security forces, such as Abu Jabbal, a senior PA security forces officer in Nablus. The increased US commitment in 2009, equaling some $130 million to upgrade the PA forces to nearly 3,500 men, has failed to address the very problem of the continued existence of Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades and other armed Fatah factions that resulted in the recent murder of Chai. It is well known in senior Fatah security echelons that the limited capacity and political will of PA forces require the IDF to assume between 70 percent and 80% of the security operations against the extant terror infrastructure in the West Bank.

ASSERTIONS BY some US officials as to the effectiveness of PA security forces must also be reassessed in view of recent Aksa Martyrs actions against the Palestinian leadership. Aksa operatives fired shots recently at Anan Atiri, deputy to the incoming governor of Nablus, after publishing leaflets labeling the governor a traitor. The group has also publicly labeled Fayyad an American agent and has published threats against him. Add this to the fact that Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades shot at outgoing Nablus Governor Jamal Muheissin on November 26, and that in May it published a leaflet there accusing PA President Mahmoud Abbas of participating in assassinations in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.

In view of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades’ direct challenge to the US-backed PA Security forces, it would seem appropriate for to Israel to receive clarifications from the United States as to how these robustly funded and well trained paramilitary forces plan to finally uproot the Fatah and Hamas terror infrastructures that continue to claim the lives of Israeli civilians while physically threatening the PA leadership that is supposed to be securing the foundation for independence.

The United States might also clarify to the Palestinian leadership that in the aftermath of the tragic and violent Iranian-backed Hamas takeover of Gaza following Israel’s 2005 withdrawal, Israelis are not inclined to assume major security risks in line with Palestinian “red line” demands for a second complete Gaza-type withdrawal, particularly in Area C of the West Bank, which houses the strategically vital Jordan Valley and its 3,000-foot protective hills overlooking Israel’s major coastal cities.

To be sure, Israel will become even more risk-averse if the Palestinian Authority proves incapable of completely uprooting the entire terror infrastructure in the areas under their agreed upon jurisdiction.

Barack and Barak -- B. Obama and Ehud B.-- to Blame for Rabbi's Murder

from Israel National News

[J]ournalist David Bedein reminded Arutz Sheva's audience that the Al Aksa Martyrs formally joined Fatah's security forces at the Fatah convention in August. Fatah receives military training from US military forces with the full approval of Israel Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

Bedein noted that as a journalist, he recently submitted a query to the Minister of Defense and directed a similar question to the US authorities. In his queries he noted that despite their claims otherwise, the Al Aksa Martyrs are a terror group whose men receive financial aid which the US gives the group.

He has not received an answer to the query.

Bedein's description of the matter means that the United States (headed by President Barack Obama), with the Israeli government's passive agreement, has indirect responsibility for training and funding the terror force which murdered Rabbi Meir Chai.

Machine-Translated from the Spanish at L.Y. Conde's Judios en el Norte de Sefarad

Conference of PILAR RAHOLA in GLOBAL FORUM FOR COMBATING ANTISEMITISM, Jerusalem 16 Dec. 2009. For any additional information, the website of this important forum is: 12/2009 [NOTE: Not much there. lw]

[translated from the Spanish by "bing" --a raw translation, no editing nor cleanup. Want me to edit and clean-it-up? Leave me a COMMENT here to that effect. If I get a sufficient number of these, I shall do just that.]

[Pilar Rahola speaking]

Monday night in Barcelona. In the restaurant, a hundred lawyers and judges. Gathered to hear my views on the Middle East conflict. Know that I am a heterodox, ship in the wreck of the single-minded prevailing in my country, on Israel. Want to hear me. Someone reasonable as I say, do why risk losing credibility, defending the bad, the guilty parties? I tell the truth is a broken mirror, and we all have some piece. And caused his reaction: "all you create experts in international politics, when talking about Israel, but actually know nothing." Do you dare to speak of the conflict in Rwanda, Kashmir, Chechnya? "." Not. They are lawyers, its terrain is geopolitics. But with Israel dare. Worldwide dares. Why? Why Israel is under the permanent magnifying glass media and distorted image, pollutes the brains in the world. And why is part of the politically correct, why seems solidarity, why leaves free talk against Israel. And thus people cultivated, when read about Israel are willing to believe that Jews have six arms, in the middle ages believed all kinds of atrocities. On the Jews of yesteryear and the Israelis today, anything goes.

The first question, then, is why so many intelligent people when speaking about Israel, idiot. The problem we who not demonizamos to Israel, is that there is no discussion of the conflict, there is the banner; not ideas we we cross, we paste with slogans; not enjoy serious information, suffer hamburger, fast food, full of prejudice, propaganda and simplismo journalism. Intellectual thinking and international journalism, has resigned in Israel. Does not exist. Therefore, that when you try to go beyond the single thought, becomes suspicious, unsupportive and reactionary, and is immediately segregated. Why?

Years ago that I try to answer this question: why? Would why of all conflicts in the world, just like it? Why does criminalizes a small country, struggling to survive? What why triumphs lies and informative, handling so easily? What why throughout, is reduced to a simple mass murderers imperialists? Why the reasons of Israel are never there? Why are there never blame Palestinian? By what Arafat is a hero, and Sharon a monster? Ultimately, why, being the only country in the world threatened with destruction, is the only that no one considers victim?

I do not believe that there is a single answer to these questions. Just as it is impossible to explain fully the historical wickedness of anti-Semitism,
It is not possible to explain the current imbecilidad of the antiisraelismo. Both drink sources of intolerance, lying and prejudice. If, moreover, that the antiisraelismo is the new form of anti-Semitism, we conclude that they have changed the contingencies, but deeper, myths of medieval Christian anti-Semitism, both of modern political anti-Semitism remain intact. And these myths have resulted in the story about Israel. For example, the medieval Jewish that killed Christian children to drink his blood, connects directly to the Israeli Jew who kills Palestinian children to stay their lands. They are always innocent children and dark Jews. For example, the Jewish bankers who wanted to dominate the silent on European banking as the myth of the protocols, connects directly to the idea of Jews from Wall Street to dominate the world from the White House. The domain of the press, the finances, the universal conspiracy, everything that you configured the historical hatred against Jews, domain today empties into hatred Israelis. In the subconscious, therefore late Western anti-Semitic DNA, which creates an effective breeding ground. But what late in the conscious? What why today comes with so much virulence a renewed intolerance, now centered, not on the Jewish people, but in the Jewish State? From my point of view, it has historical and geopolitical, reason among others the bloody Soviet role for decades, Arab interests, European anti-Americanism, the energy dependence of the West and the growing Islamic phenomenon.

But also arises from a set of defeats that suffer as free societies and empties into a strong ethical relativism.

Moral defeat of the left. For decades, the left raised the flag of freedom, there where there is injustice, and was the repository of utopian expectations of society. He was the great construction company for the future. While the murderous evil of Stalinism sank these utopias and left to the left as the naked King, stripped of costumes, has preserved intact its halo of struggle, and still mark patterns of the good and the bad guys of the world. Even those who would never vote left-wing positions give great prestige left-wing intellectuals, and allow to be them which monopolize the concept of solidarity. As they have always done. Thus fighters against Pinochet, were the freedom fighters, but Castro, victims are expelled from paradise of heroes, and converted in CIA agents, or undercover fascists. I remember perfectly, as young, combative University of Franco's Spain reading Solzhenitsyn was anathema... And thus the man raised the cry from the black hole of the Stalinist Gulag, it could not be read by antifranquistas fighters, why there were leftist dictatorships or victims fighting them.

This historic betrayal to freedom, reproduced at present, with mathematical precision. Also today as yesterday, that left forgives totalitarian ideologies, falls in love with dictators, and in their offensive against Israel, ignores the destruction of fundamental rights. Hates rabbis, but falls in love with magnets; shouts against the IDF, but welcomes the terrorists of Hamas; cries by Palestinian victims, but despises the Jewish; victims and when shocked by Palestinian children, does only it if you can blame the Israelis. Never denouncing culture of hatred, their preparation for death, or slavery suffered by their mothers. And while stands the Palestinian flag, burning the flag of Israel. A year ago, at the AIPAC in Washington, Congress did the following questions: "do what deep pathologies away to the left of his moral commitment?" What should we see in Paris or Barcelona demonstrations against Islamic dictatorships? why is there no demonstrations, against the enslavement of millions of Muslim women? What why not manifested in the use of child bombs in conflicts where Islam is involved? "why the left is only obsessed in fight against two of the strongest democracies of the planet, and which have suffered most bleeding attacks, U.s. and Israel?"… Why the left dreamed utopias stopped dreaming, broken in the Berlin wall of their own failure. You no longer have ideas, but slogans. Already does not advocate rights but prejudices. And greater prejudice of all is the anti-Israel. I acknowledge, therefore, clearly: the primary responsibility for new anti-Semitic hatred, disguised as a antiisraelismo, comes from those who would have to defend freedom, solidarity and progress. Far from it, defend despots, forget their victims and silent before medieval ideologies that want to destroy civilization. The betrayal of the left is a real betrayal of modernity.

Defeat of journalism. We have a more informed than ever world, but we have a better informed world. On the contrary, the information highways connect us with any point of the planet, but not connect us with the truth, nor with the facts. Current journalists do not need maps, why have Google Earth, do not need to know history, why have Wikipedia. Historical journalists who knew the roots of conflict, still exist, but are a species endangered, devoured by this journalism that offers fast-food news readers who want information fast-food hamburger. Israel is the most guarded world and yet, the place of the least understood world. Of course, also influences big lobbyists of the petrodollar, whose influence in journalism is subtle but deep pressure. Any more media knows that if he speaks against Israel, will have no problems. But what will happen if criticises an Islamic country? Certainly, then complicate life. Let us not confuse us. Part of the press writes against Israel, would be reflected in an acute Goethe phrase: "no one is more slave which have for free, without it". Or also in another, more cynical of Mark Twain: "First know the facts and then distorsióna them as you want".

Defeat of critical thinking. All this can add ethical relativism that defines the current time, and being based, not the negation of the values of civilization, but their normalization. What is modernity? Personally explain with this small story: if I lose on a desert island, and like to establish a democratic society, would need only three books: the tables of the law, which established the first code of modernity. "Not kill, do not steal,..." founded the modern civilization. Roman criminal code. And the Bill of rights. And with these three texts should begin. These principles, which speak for us as a society, are relativizados, even by those who claim to defend them. "Not kill"..., depends on who would be the target, think those who, for example in Barcelona, demonstrated with shouts for Hamas. "Live human rights", depends on a who apply and therefore not concerned million women slaves. "Non mentirás"..., depends on whether the information is a weapon of war in favour of a cause. Social critical mass has thinned, and at the same time, has fattened ideological dogmatism. In this double yaw, strong currency values have been replaced by a thought weak, vulnerable to manipulation and Manichaeism.

Defeat of the United Nations. And with it, a rotunda defeats international agencies that should ensure human rights, and that have become broken in the hands of despots dolls. The UN only serves to make islamofascistas as Ahmadinejad or dangerous demagogues like Hugo Chavez, a planetary speaker from where spitting his hatred. And, of course, to systematically attack Israel. Also against Israel, the UN lives better.

Finally, defeat of Islam. Islam lights today suffer violent attack by a totalitarian virus that attempts to curb his ethical development. This virus uses the name of God to perpetrate the most unimaginable horrors: stoned women, enslave them, use pregnant and young people with mental retardation as human bombs, train in hatred, and declare war on freedom. Let us not forget, for example, that us kill with mobile satellite connected... with the middle ages...

If Stalinism destroyed left, and the Nazis destroyed Europe, Islamic fundamentalism is destroying Islam. And also, like other totalitarian ideologies, an anti-Semitic DNA. Islamic anti-Semitism is perhaps the most serious intolerant phenomenon today, not in vain affects more than 1,300 million educated, massively, hatred the Jew.

Israel is located at the crossroads of these defeats. A reasonable left a serious journalism and a dignified UN, orphan and tolerant Islam, Israel orphan orphan suffer violent paradigm of the 21st century: the lack of strong commitment to the values of freedom. Nothing is strange. Jewish culture embodies as none, the metaphor of a concept of civilization today suffering attacks by all sides. You are the thermometer health worldwide. Provided that the world had totalitarian fever, you have suffered. In medieval Spanish, in the Christian persecutions in the Russian progroms in European fascism in Islamic fundamentalism. The first enemy of totalitarianism has always the Jew. And in these times of dependence and social confusion, Israel embodies in meat, the Jew of always.

A pariah nation among Nations, for a pariah people between peoples. That is why the anti-Semitism of the 21st century has dressed the effective costume of the antiisraelismo. All the criticism against Israel is anti-Semitic? Not. But all current anti-Semitism has dump in prejudice and demonising against the Jewish State. A new dress for an old hatred.

Said Benjamin Franklin: "where mora freedom, there is my homeland". And added Albert Einstein: "life is very dangerous." "Not for people who do evil, but that sit to see what happens". This is the twofold commitment here and now: not sit never to see pass evil and Always defend homelands of freedom.

Thank you.

Apropos of the terrorist murder of Rabbi Meir Chai

“The degraded one says in his heart, ‘There is no God’”

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Apropos of the terrorist murder of Rabbi Meir Chai, a father of seven from Samaria, I ask once again: “Why is Netanyahu still in Office?”

How many Jews have been murdered by Arab terrorists as a result of Israel’s spineless and intellectually stultified prime ministers?

Why is there no rational method of removing such timid and unteachable prime ministers from office? What enables them to remain in office or be re-elected despite their abysmal political records?

How many years must Israel persist in the inane policy of self-restraint — read “cowardice” — and suffer its consequences, the murder of our loved ones and the degradation of our country?

Why can’t Israel’s political and intellectual leaders recognize the most palpable fact — a fact manifested over and over again during the course of 1,400 years of Islamic history — that you cannot make peace with the disciples of Muhammad, who have slaughtered more than 200 million people during those fourteen centuries?

This is the one crucial (and horrific) fact which no prime minister of Israel — certainly not a Harvard-educated prime minister like Binyamin Netanyahu — has been able to assimilate, which is why I deem them unteachable.

Bear in mind that the mentor of Shimon Peres, Professor Y. Harkabi, set forth all you need to know about the militant and mendacious character of Islam in his book Arab Attitudes to Israel. Yet this same academic advocated negotiations with the disciples of Muhammad for the purpose establishing a PLO state in Israel’s heartland? Ponder this schizophrenia, which permeates all too many of Israel’s (as well as America’s) political and intellectual elites, and you will not be surprised to learn that Israel’s Harvard-education prime minister is a clone of these idiots.

The Jewish sages said that the atmosphere of Israel makes one wise. But this they said of Israel when Israel worshipped God and was not led by fools who say in their hearts there is no God.

To ask, as I have— “Why is Netanyahu still in office?” — is to suggest that there is no political accountability among those who hold office in Israel. This lack of accountability can be traced not only to Israel’s poorly designed political institutions, which I have discussed ad nauseam, but also to fools or degraded leaders who say in their hearts there is no God.

Ahmadinejad and his Mullah Masters: “Death to Israel”

Incitement to Genocide

“‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel’ are not only words written on paper but rather a symbolic approach that reflects the desire of all the Muslim nations.” October 4, 2007

While certain Western commentators on Iran seek to whitewash Ahmadinejad’s statements on Israel, pro and anti-regime Iranians (and others in the region) have no doubt that the Iranian president is referring to the destruction of Israel, according to Iranian blogs and forums. There are close to 180,000 Persian-language blogs, and Iranians constitute 53 percent of Internet users in the Middle East.

from: What Iranian Leaders Really Say
about Doing Away with Israel:
A Refutation of the Campaign to Excuse
Ahmadinejad’s Incitement to Genocide

by Joshua Teitelbaum

• Over the past several years, Iranian leaders – most prominently, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – have made numerous statements calling for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people. While certain experts have interpreted these statements to be simple expressions of dissatisfaction with the current Israeli government and its policies, in reality, the intent behind Ahmadinejad’s language and that of others is clear.

• What emerges from a comprehensive analysis of what Ahmadinejad actually said – and how it has been interpreted in Iran – is that the Iranian president was not just calling for “regime change” in Jerusalem, but rather the actual physical destruction of the State of Israel. When Ahmadinejad punctuates his speech with “Death to Israel” (marg bar Esraiil), this is no longer open to various interpretations.

• A common motif of genocide incitement is the dehumanization of the target population. The Nazi weekly Der Stürmer portrayed Jews as parasites and locusts. Ahmadinejad said in a speech on February 20, 2008: “In the Middle East, they [the global powers] have created a black and filthy microbe called the Zionist regime.”

• Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who succeeded Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989, has made statements about Israel similar to Ahmadinejad. On December 15, 2000, he declared on Iranian TV: “Iran’s position, which was first expressed by the Imam [Khomeini] and stated several times by those responsible, is that the cancerous tumor called Israel must be uprooted from the region.”

• Michael Axworthy, who served as the Head of the Iran Section of Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, notes that when the slogan “Israel must be wiped off the map” appeared “draped over missiles in military parades, that meaning was pretty clear.”

• There is an ample legal basis for the prosecution of Ahmadinejad in the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court for direct and public incitement to commit genocide and crimes against humanity.

[COMMENT: But as we are dealing with killing Jews here, don't hold your breath waiting for the "International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court" to take any action.]

Chanukkah 2009


Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, is celebrated by Jews for eight days, commencing on the 25th day of the month of Kislev (November/December). This year (2009) Hanukkah begins on the eve of December 11.


Not really. The eight lights are lit to celebrate a miraculous happening.

The victory was necessary for it to happen.

The victory was that of the Jews over the Hellenist Syrians in 165 BCE.

Following their victory, the Maccabees, sons of the Priestly Hasmonean family which led the Jews in their revolt against the Syrian overlords, entered the Holy Temple in Jerusalem defiled by the Syrian invaders, cleansed it and dedicated it anew to the service of God. Then, in memory of their victory, the Maccabees celebrated the first Hanukkah. (Hanukkah is the Hebrew term for "dedication").

The Talmud, the body of Jewish oral law, relates how the Judean heroes, led by Judah Maccabee, were making ready to rededicate the Temple and were unable to find enough undefiled oil to light the lamps. However, in one of the Temple chambers, they finally came upon a small cruse of oil which, under normal circumstances, would have lasted only one evening. Miraculously, this small amount of oil kept the Temple lights burning, not for one night, but for all the eight nights until new oil fit for use in the temple could be obtained. This is the miracle commemorated by the kindling of the Hanukkah lights.

The miracle would never have occurred, had the Temple in Jerusalem remained defiled and in the foreign (non-Jewish) hands that had sacrificed a pig in the Holy of Holies.

Why was there no Islamic presence in Jerusalem at this time? No mention of the Islamic conquerors of the Greeks in Judea? Well, guess what: the events described in the "hanukkah story" took place some 700 years before there was such a thing as a "Moslem," an "Islam," an Arab "prophet" that called himself "Mohammed."

The U.S. and "No Jews Allowed in Judea!"

[quote from Gerald Honigman]

Secretary of State Clinton made a hasty visit to North Africa—both Egypt and Morocco—to kiss Arab leaders’ derrieres for her previous "mistake." Her crime? She dared to praise Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s temporary halt to allowing more Judeans—Jews—to live in Judea, a place where they lived and owned land for millennia up until their slaughter by Arabs in the 1920s and 1930s. Over a million Arabs—many hostile to Israel and supporters of those who would see it destroyed and its people slaughtered—can live in the Jewish State without fear, but how dare Jews live in a small part of Judea.


Secondly, I’m concerned over Netanyahu’s offer Arabs have company in this corner. Who knows what he actually offered if Hillary gave him some praise. She’s definitely no fan of Jewish leaders who act like they still have their private parts intact...regardless of what too many card playing Jewish grandmas like to think. Israelis did not vote Bibi into office to elect yet another yes massah stooge for an American State Department which fought against Israel’s very existence from the getgo and remains hostile and largely Arabist in orientation to this very day.


Think of it...There was Hillary in "Arab" North Africa [The majority of North Africans are "Berbers", not Arabs] . And what was she up to? Reassuring Arabs that Israel will remain a 9-15 mile wide sub rump state, perpetually at their mercy under threat of invasion, terrorism, and being severed in half. Israel is simply expected to forget about the establishment of real and secure borders—not previously imposed armistice lines—that the final draft of UNSC Resolution 242 called for after the 1967 fighting which started as a result of an Arab blockade of Israel and other hostile acts.


Neither the Arabs’ more honest Hamas nor the Arabs’ latter day Arafatian Fatah’s Abbas has any intention of recognizing a state of the Jews nor allowing it to exist in peace—regardless of who is doing the whitewashing. to such enemies, Israel owes nothing except exponential payback.

Looking Back at the Peace Plan of a "black" President

from Dry Bones, comes this analysis of how a black president wanted to keep an area "racially pure:"

No Jews Allowed

Obama's plan for Peace on the West Bank is not new.
The Nazis invented two words for it.
"Judenfrei" refers to "freeing" an area of all of its Jewish citizens.
"Judenrein" (literally "clean of Jews") was also used.
This had the stronger connotation that the area had been cleansed of Jewish blood.

The reverse of this Obama edict to keep lands under Arab occupation "cleansed" of Jews, is the suicidal plan to keep Arabs in Israel--the "enemy within"--as a burgeoning population sector with full Israeli citizenship and the dream of becoming a majority in a "Judenrein" "Palestinian" state.

Jews and Sarah Palin

Leftist Jews have a new target for their outrage, Sarah Palin, another fundamentalist Christian who supports Israel. Among Sarah Palin’s sins are that she shoots wolves and protects the unborn, to which Israeli literary figure Naomi Ragen has responded, would leftist Jews like her better if she shot children and nurtured wolf cubs?

--"The Jews, Palin, and Liberal Politics" By Abraham H. Miller
via Israpundit
from Israel Hasbara Committee . . .

It is also not surprising that in response to the pressure of leftist Jews, the pusillanimous leaders of Jewish organizations, whose sympathies incline toward the left, disinvited Palin from speaking at a Jewish organization rally, held outside the United Nations (September 23, 2008), protesting Iran’s quixotic, genocidal President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

As Caroline Glick notes in the Jerusalem Post of September 23, 2008, these leaders decided that it is more important to put Barack Obama in the White House than to stand up to the man who promises the world a Second Holocaust.

And if one looks at the backgrounds of some of these leaders, they reveal a menage of self-loathing Jews who have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Arabs and against Israel at critical moments that threatened Israel’s very survival.

While the Palin controversy rages in the Jewish community, I have received numerous anti-Palin emails from liberal Jewish women: several even asked me to contribute money to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin’s name, as a slap in the face to Palin’s pro-life politics.

As Iran pursues its nuclear program touted as the new Final Solution, the most critical issue on the minds of these liberal Jewish women is one that puts the deaths of the unborn ahead of the lives of six million Israeli Jews already delivered from the womb.

With attitudes like these, Jews need not fear the Islamic Jihadists and the Ahmadinejads of the world; Jews only need to fear the real enemy of the Jewish people�their co-religionists who are incapable of seeing the world from any vantage point other than one that is permanently and mindlessly anchored at the left end of the political spectrum.

A Lesson from Ben Hecht

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

A propos of the report of the United Nations Human Rights Council regarding Israel’s “Operation Cast Lead” in Gaza, and in view of the endorsement of this infamous report by the UN General Assembly, whose anti-Semitic or Israel-bashing tendencies are notorious, it behooves Jews to heed these words of Ben Hecht’s Guide for the Bedevilled (1944):

“The Jewish apologists are avidly and pathetically content on stating the case for the Jew by contradicting his enemies….They feel only that anything an anti-Semite says must be contradicted and disproved—and they rush forward with statements that Jews [are humanitarians].

“These denials, contradictions and affirmations are a preposterous waste of time. Jewish diplomacy has been wasting its time in this fashion for almost twenty centuries, offering alibis and mitigating circumstances—for what? Is there anything of which a Jew can be guilty that could match the unsavory and contemptible antics of his accusers? Apologies to whom? To that judge with blood-caked hands who sits leering from the bench? To that enfeebled and chaotic brain that calls itself an anti-Semite? Or to that smug and highty-tighty bystander, World Opinion—a gentleman who hasn’t been able to find his buttocks with both hands since he was given an alphabet to play with?

“You would think that the Jews would wake up to this one fact about themselves—that their defensive position is the chief delight and arsenal of the anti-Semite. But never comes such awakening. There have been some who have opened their eyes. Heinrich Heine woke up one day and filled the world with a burst of bitter laughter. This ‘greatest of their poets’ announced that, whatever the Jew was, the spectacle of the monstrosities who call themselves Germans setting themselves up as his judges and superiors was one which must see the Devil and all his friends laughing.

“But Heine is only a Jew—not a Jewish spokesman. The Jewish spokesmen are a little too stunned with calamity to make epigrams. Their very egoism bids them look to themselves for answers, rather than to their enemies. And they answer, scientifically, vaingloriously, despairingly. That they are arguing with lunacy, that they are titillating sadists, but they manage only to inflame their accusers by revealing their wounds—never daunts their propaganda.

“And in this struggle to disprove the anti-Semite by presenting themselves as a noble, worthy, and even wondrous people, the Jews fall into a trap that leaves their enemies cackling. For even these have enough cunning to punch holes in such contentions. The mere fact that the Jews are to be found on this earth is enough to deny their cries that they are noble or remotely wondrous. No people known to history is that—not even the Americans.

“There are two very unwise things to do in this world. One is to proclaim the fact that you are in distress—and expect your plight to bring Samaritans rushing to your side. An occasional Samaritan will arrive—but accompanied always by three hooligan sadists intent on the sport of increasing your misery. The other is the business of advertising your virtues. The ‘Jewish propaganda machine’ is more or less devoted to both schemes, and the results continue, century in and out, to be the same. In a world that admits only victors, the Jews have persisted as advertising themselves as victims only. This the Jews are not. I am not writing of those murdered but those alive. No man alive is a victim. It is not only stupid but dangerous to pronounce himself one….

“Such, to a large degree, is the effect of the Virtue-Apologist propaganda of the Jews. The bystander—not necessarily an anti-Semite—on hearing the overpraise attached to the name Jew, ignores it a little irritably, and bethinks himself at once of Jews he knows he wouldn’t be found dead with.

“My own attitude toward the Jews is that they need no defense—and that defending them is the major disservice I can do to them. They are and always have been the children of the world—and they look to me as good as the rest of their playmates. And, now and then, a little better.

“If there is anything special in the Jewish make-up, it lies in the ancient and still undissipated egoism of the Jew. Here is the quirk of which the anti-Semites make always a great noise. I wish only that the accusations were true—that Jews are dangerous, that they are a world menace (to the Germans), that they cannot be assimilated by Nordic peoples. (Is this really a charge or a complaint?) I wish too that there were complete truth in the accusation that the Jews are an implacable barrier to the philosophy of rampant nationalism.

“There is only one truth in all these charges. No Jew, were he given a Swastika to wear on his sleeve, could exist in the Hell made by the Germans. Not even a bad Jew. There is enough of Elijah left in him to make of him the eternal Underground against tyranny.

“It behooves the Jews to embrace this truth in the charges of his enemies with gratitude and a grin”

Why Jews Don’t Hate Muslims that Hate Them*

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Have you ever wondered why many Jews in Israel live in denial about Arab hatred? Have you been puzzled by their inability to face the obvious fact that the Arabs want to destroy them? I’ll limit myself to only reasons: (1) Israel’s failure to understand Islam’s love of death; and (2) Israel’s own love of life.

That Islam loves death was evident in the Iranian-Iraqi war, when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent tens of thousands of Iranian children to death by having them walk across Iraqi minefields. This necrophilia infects Palestinians who use children as human bombs.

Israel’s love of life generates Hesed or kindliness. An excess of kindliness, however, leads to foolishness and even self-righteousness. Israelis can’t fathom the depth of Arab hatred. “Why should Arabs hate us? We’re so generous. Look what we did for them in the ‘West Bank.’ We established a system of primary and secondary schools that greatly multiplied the number of Arab children attending classes. We built their first universities. We established new hospitals and nursing schools for them. Infant mortality was greatly reduced, and their standard of health was improved beyond recognition. And don’t forget how we constructed roads as well as water and electric power facilities and introduced modern methods of agriculture. Thanks to us, their income far exceeded their kinsmen in the Arab world. So why should they hate us?”

The self-righteousness or feeling of moral superiority of so many Jews has stupefied them. They simply don’t understand that hatred comes natural to Arabs—it’s a cultural phenomenon. Ehud Barak offered Arafat 97% of Judea and Samaria, including eastern Jerusalem, but the Arabs said NO! Arab hatred of Jews trumped Arab statehood. Did this change Barak’s attitude toward the Arabs? Not a bit. Did it affect Sharon or Olmert or Livni or Peres or Netanyahu on the issue of a Palestinian state? Not at all. These patronizing and benighted Jews think like capitalists: “Make the Arabs wealthy and they’ll junk jihad and become peace-loving bourgeoisie like us.”

Peres once said we can learn nothing from history. So this genius doesn’t remember the British Peel Commission report of 1937, which concluded that, "Although the Arabs have benefited from the development of the country owing to Jewish immigration, this has had no conciliatory effect. On the contrary, improvement in the economic situation in Palestine has meant the deterioration of the political situation.” Arab hatred of Jews trumps Arab prosperity.

Leon Uris understood this. In his novel, The Haj, Uris has the famous Orde Wingate say:

The Arabs will never love you for what good you’ve brought them. They don’t know how to really love. But hate! Oh God, can they hate! And they have a deep, deep, deep resentment because you [Jews] have jolted them from their delusion of grandeur and shown them for what they are—a decadent, savage people controlled by a religion that has stripped them of all human ambition ... except for the few cruel enough and arrogant enough to command them as one commands a mob of sheep. You [Jews] are dealing with a mad society and you’d better learn how to control it.

The novel’s central character Haj Ibrahim says this to a Jewish friend:

You [Jews] do not know how to deal with us. For years, decades, we may seem to be at peace with you, but always in the back of our minds we keep up the hope of vengeance. No dispute is ever really settled in our world. The Jews give us a special reason to continue warring.

Uris has the cultured Dr. Mudhil elaborate:

We [Arabs] do not have leave to love one another and we have long ago lost the ability. It was so written twelve hundred years earlier. Hate is our overpowering legacy and we have regenerated ourselves by hatred from decade to decade, generation to generation, century to century. The return of the Jews has unleashed that hatred, exploding it wildly ... In ten, twenty, thirty years the world of Islam will begin to consume itself in madness. We cannot live with ourselves ... we never have. We are incapable of change.

Later in the novel, Dr. Mudhil remarks: “Islam is unable to live at peace with anyone.... One day our oil will be gone, along with our ability to blackmail. We have contributed nothing to human betterment in centuries, unless you consider the assassin and the terrorist as human gifts.”

Some pundits may call Uris a “racist.” They lack the novelist’s clear-headed understanding of Arab culture. Unlike apologists, Uris appreciates the tragedy of a few insightful Arabs who know they are trapped in the decadence of “a culture of hate.” Hate incites murder. In all the lands Islam conquered, Muslims replaced indigenous places of worship—Christian, Jewish, Persian, Zoroastrian, Buddhist, Hindu—with Mosques. This could not be done without enormous bloodshed—estimated at 270 million victims! Those who speak of Islam as a religion of peace are either ignoramuses or on the Saudi payroll.

What happens to a culture in which hate is a chronic principle? When that principle gains ascendancy, as it has in Islam, it tends to close the Muslim’s mind. It breeds intolerance. It precludes self-criticism and undermines any incentive to understand and learn from non-Muslims. And of course it leads to murder.

Contrast Judaism. Hesed or kindliness is a fundamental Jewish principle. Kindliness prompts the Jew not only to help but also to understand and learn from non-Jews. (In the Babylonian Talmud, Pesachim 94b, Rabbi Judah the Prince, compiler of the Mishna, unhesitatingly declares in favor of a Gentile astronomical theory over that of the wise men of Israel.) The kindliness of the Jew enlarges his mind and makes him tolerant toward others. Accordingly, whereas Jews speak of righteous Gentiles whose place in heaven is assured, Muslims designate as evil everything that is not Islam and consign all infidels to hell.

But the kindliness of Jews can be as irrational as Arab hatred. This was evident among several Jews in Gush Katif. They showered with kindness the robotic Jews that had come to destroy their homes. The Sages warn us not to carry the Hesed too far.

The irrational kindness of many Jews is symptomatic of a national disorder quite evident among Israel’s ruling elites—their inability to hate with passion Israel’s genocidal enemies. Contrast another kind of Jew. In The Kuzari, Judah Halevi quotes King David: “I hate them, O God, that hate you” (Psalms 129:21). The haters of God, the Kuzari explains, refers to “those who hate God’s people, God’s covenant, or God’s Torah …”

Hatred, however, is futile if it does not issue in action. In Psalm 18:38-43, Israel’s greatest king writes: “I pursued my enemies and overtook them, and returned not until they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they are not able to rise; ... I pulverized them like dust in the face of the storm...”

The Sages teach: “There is a time to kill, in the time of war, and a time to heal, in the time of peace.… There is a time to love, in the time of peace, and a time to hate, in the time of war” (Kohelet Rabbah 3:1). Consider the verse, “When you go forth to battle against your enemies” (Deut. 20:1). The Sages ask: “What is meant by ‘against your enemies’”? They answer: “God said, ‘Confront them as enemies. Just as they show you no mercy, so should you not show them any mercy’” (Tanchuma, Shoftim 15).

Consider the mercy the Israel Defense Forces showed the Arabs in Operation Cast Lead, warning them to leave their targeted homes where arms were stored. Colonel Richard Kemp (the former commander of British forces in Afghanistan), said: "From my knowledge of the IDF and from the extent to which I have been following the current operation, I do not think there has ever been a time in the history of warfare when an army has made more efforts to reduce civil casualties and deaths of innocent people than the IDF … in Gaza."

Israel was nonetheless denounced in the world’s media and accused of committing war crimes by the UN Human Rights Council. Now Hamas is rearming, regrouping, and receiving billions from democratic America and Europe, champions of humanism.

By failing to hate Israel’s implacable enemies and to act accordingly, self-righteous and merciful Jews unwittingly become the cruel enemies of their own people.

"Kill the Jews, Wherever You Find Them!"

--said the "Grand Mufti of Jerusalem"

-- This pleases God, history and religion. this saves your honor. Allah is with you'"

Even before this foul companion of Hitler spoke those words, his "Palestinian" Arabs had been doing this--with fervor.

The Hebron Massacre of 1929

In August of 1929, Arabs instigated violence in the Jerusalem area that spread to most of Palestine. The violence began in Jerusalem and soon spread to Hebron, Motza, and Safed, all old Jewish communities in Palestine that supposedly lived in harmony with their Arab neighbors, rather than Zionist settlements.

In Hebron, the Jewish community which had been there for hundreds of years, refused the help proffered by the Haganah underground when it seemed that Arab agitation was beginning. They trusted their neighbors.

[. . . and what a mistake that was! lw]

Continued at

Eyewitness to History - Hebron, August 1929
The Hebron Pogrom of August 1929. submitted by Shlomo Hersh. The following are eyewitness accounts ... The Arabs spoke openly, shamelessly, and fearlessly of the massacre of the Jews to be ...

Mohammad Amin al-Husayni (Arabic: محمد أمين الحسيني‎, often printed with the French transliteration al-Husseini,[1] 1895/1897 - July 4 1974), a member of the al-Husayni clan of Jerusalem, was a Palestinian Arab nationalist and Muslim leader in the British Mandate of Palestine. From 1921 to 1948, he was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and played a key role in opposition to Zionism and an state for the Jews living in the Palestine region.

As early as 1920, he was active in both opposing the British in order to secure the independence of Palestine as an Arab State and led violent campaigns against Jews[2] opposing the establishment of a National home for the Jewish people in Palestine. His oppositional role peaked during the 1936-1939 Arab revolt in Palestine. In 1937, wanted by the British, he fled Palestine and took refuge successively in the French Mandate of Lebanon, the Kingdom of Iraq, Fascist Italy and finally Nazi Germany. In Germany he met dictator Adolf Hitler in 1941.[2] He asked Hitler to back Arab independence and requested that Nazi Germany oppose, as part of the Pan-Arab struggle, the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine (the future creation of Israel).[3] . In 1947, he requested funds, on humanitarian grounds, from Ahmed Belbachir Haskouri, the right-hand man of the caliph of Spanish Morocco; the latter, in turn, did not hesitate to raise and send those funds. During the 1948 Palestine War he represented the Arab Higher Committee and opposed both the 1947 UN Partition Plan and King Abdullah's ambitions for expanding Jordan by capturing Palestinian territory.

After the 1948 War and the subsequent Palestinian exodus, his claims to leadership were discredited in the eyes of some, and he was eventually sidelined by the Palestine Liberation Organization and lost most of his remaining political influence.[4] Al-Husayni died in Beirut, Lebanon in 1974.[none to soon]

Recent Nazi documents uncovered in the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Military Archive Service in Freiburg [3] by two researchers, Klaus Michael Mallmann and Martin Cüppers indicated that in the event of the British being defeated in Egypt by Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps the Nazis had planned to deploy a special unit called Einsatzkommando Ägypten to exterminate Palestinian Jews and that they wanted Arab support to prevent the emergence of a Jewish state. In their book the researchers concluded that, "the most important collaborator with the Nazis and an absolute Arab anti-Semite was Haj Amin al-Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem.'[135]

Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini, appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem by Sir Herbert Samuel the High Commissioner of British Mandatory Palestine in 1921, played a central role in introducing the ideology and tactics of the National Socialism of Adolf Hitler into the Arab World. In a career that spanned more than 5 decades, el-Husseini contributed to the development of Nazi style organizations in Arab capitals, acted as a conduit for money confiscated from Jews by the Nazi's during World War II to be used to finance anti-Jewish and anti-Israel activities, and lived in Berlin during the war years where he headed a Nazi-Muslim government in exile.

The mufti "invented a new form of Jew-hatred by recasting it in an Islamic mold," according to German scholar Matthias Küntzel. The mufti's fusion of European anti-Semtism—particularly the genocidal variety—with Koranic views of Jewish wickedness has become the hallmark of Islamists world-wide, from al Qaeda to Hamas and Hezbollah. During his time in Berlin, the mufti ran the Nazis' Arab-language propaganda radio program, which incited Muslims in the Mideast to "kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion." Among the many listeners was also the man later known as Ayatollah Khomeini, who used to tune in to Radio Berlin every evening, according to Amir Taheri's biography of the Iranian leader. Khomeini's disciple Mahmoud Ahmadinejad still spews the same venom pioneered by the mufti as do Islamic hate preachers around the world.

Muslim Judeophobia is not—as is commonly claimed—a reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main "root causes." It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel's creation.

. . . and how does this all relate to today's "Middle East situation" and the idiotic "Peace Process?"

We go back to the Daniel Schwammenthal article in the Wall Street Journal:

"Karl Rössel's exhibition "The Third World in the Second World War" was supposed to premier on Sept. 1 in the "Werkstatt der Kulturen," a publicly funded multicultural center in Berlin's heavily Turkish and Arab neighborhood of Neukölln. Outraged by the exhibition's small section on Arab complicity in Nazi crimes, Philippa Ebéné, who runs the center, cancelled the event. Among the facts Ms. Ebéné didn't want the visitors of her center to learn is that the Palestinian wartime leader "was one of the worst and fanatical fascists and anti-Semites," as Mr. Rössel put it to me."

After canceling the exhibition, Ms. Ebéné clumsily tried to counter the impression that she had pre-emptively caved to Arab pressure. As a "non-white" person (her father is Cameroonian), she said, she didn't have to fear Arabs, an explanation that indirectly suggested that ordinary, "white," Germans might have reason to feel less safe speaking truth to Arabs.

Berlin's integration commissioner, Günter Piening, initially seemed to defend her. "We need, in a community like Neukölln, a differentiated presentation of the involvement of the Arabic world in the Second World War," Der Tagesspiegel quoted him as saying. He later said he was misquoted and following media criticism allowed a smaller version of the exhibit to be shown.


"I am not a Mideast expert," Mr. Rössel [the censored Exhibitor] told me [Mr. Schwammenthal], but "I wonder why the people who so one-sidedly regard Israel as the region's main problem never consider how the Mideast conflict would have developed had it not been influenced by fascists, anti-Semites and people who had just returned from their Nazi exile."

Mr. Rössel may not be a "Mideast expert" but he raises much more pertinent questions about the conflict than many of those who claim that title.

Mr. Schwammenthal is an editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal Europe.

J Street - Another Vanity Production of the Disreputable Renegade Jew George Soros - the man who pulled the strings to get Obama where he is today!

Hymie Zoltsveis on October 20, 2009 [comment at]

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 (From Atlas Shrugs Blog)J Street is a Dead End as rats jump shipThe vile anti-Jewish J Street is being shunned by K street, Congress, and anyone with an ounce of basic human decency. Only Obama sanctioned this stain on humanity. Another revolting notch in the belt of the enemy in the White House. Daniel F sent this:

They’re heading for the exits at anti-Zionist George Soros’s vanity production, J Street. The Weekly Standard has the latest tally of politicians who no longer want their names associated with the ersatz outfit’s "conference" being held next week. The list is growing. And the JPost reports that Israel’s Ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren, has declined J Street’s invitation too, citing concerns that "certain policies of the organization…may impair the interests of Israel."

Looking back, this is the unwinding of the unwarranted street cred Obama bestowed on the sham leftwing group at his meeting with Jewish leaders in July. Recall, as punishment for questioning his Israel policies, Obama excluded the venerable (and conservative) Zionist Organization of America to make room for his benefactor Soros.

The Weekly Standard is keeping tally:
The list of senators and representatives that have withdrawn their names from the host committee now stands at eleven, including both Democratic and Republican members. J Street has also cancelled a panel, rescinding invitations to three speakers whose "use and abuse of Holocaust imagery," first noted on this blog, was deemed potentially "offensive to some conference participants" by J Street director Jeremy Ben-Ami. How many more people will bail on this "pro-Israel" conference before it starts on Sunday?

The full list of members who’ve pulled their support from J Street:
Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR)
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS)
Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE)

Why Jews Would Rather Die Than Face Islam's Jew-Hatred

Tough Questions for Israel and Its Supporters
from Bill Warner's Political Islam
October 28, 2009

When America entered the war in Vietnam, Ho Chi Min said that it would be a long war and that the communists would win by using propaganda in the media and the universities. He was correct.

It is time to take stock in the war between Israelis and the Palestinians and deal with some forbidden subjects. Israel is losing the propaganda war, hasbarah, and for a very good reason.

Israel is not in the hasbarah game, unless one counts belated responses to the Palestinians’ propaganda offensives. Pierre Rehov, a Moroccan French Jew, is a documentary filmmaker. He claims that the Palestinians have made over 50 propaganda movies, while Israel has done only 8. Of those eight, Mr. Rehov made six.

Why don’t Jews and Israel want to deal with propaganda? Simple. It would mean talking about Islam. Jews and Israel must face the facts that the Koran and the Sunna (the actions and words of Mohammed) are filled with invectives against the Jews. At first the words were complimentary, but when the Jews of Medina rejected Mohammed as a prophet they were all enslaved, exiled, murdered and robbed—all acts of jihad. These were not historical acts, but perfect examples of Islamic action towards Jews—models prescribed for Muslims to follow up to the present time. To illustrate the severity of this predicament, statistically speaking, in the Koran of Medina 10.6% of the text is devoted to Jew hatred, whereas, only 6.8% of Mein Kampf is devoted to Jew hatred.

The language and actions of Palestinians and all Muslims in general are directly approved by Islamic political theological doctrine. Not only the language, but also policy is set by the Islamic political doctrine. To repeat: political doctrine—a political theological doctrine of jihad against all kafirs.

Yet, it seems until now that both Jews and Israel choose annihilation over talking about Islam. It is simply not an acceptable subject matter. Political correctness prevails over survival.

Unfortunately, these are suicidal choices. It is obvious that the ADL and the Jewish Federations for example, are only two Jewish organizations that have corporate polices of not discussing Islamic political ideology relating to the so called “Israeli / Palestinian conflict”.

The ADL will admit that there are a “few” radical Muslims, and would gladly argue in public that except for a few Muslim extremists, Islam is not the problem. ADL is the first to argue that Jews and Christians have their share of crazies and they are no different from the Muslims. This is the ultimate multiculturalist view, which may well lead to a disaster for Israel and aid to the demise of Western civilization.

Since a propaganda war is about the use of intelligence, one would think that the Israelis would be the world’s best and the Muslims would be the worst. Look at Nobel prizes, especially in the sciences. Israelis win them by the handful compared to the Arab world. But in the hasbarah, public relations, the Israelis are lazy fools and the Palestinians are industrious geniuses.

Israeli government officials who will comment off the record say that as a government, Israel cannot launch a propaganda war over Islam.

And, if Israel were to launch an ideological war, who would be the target audience? The ultimate target would be the secular and liberal Jews of America and Israel, who are the near enemy. If you can launch a hasbarah campaign that would open their eyes, enough of the world would tag along.

Otherwise, if the Israelis continue to think that they can keep scoring military victories and by that win this ideological war, they are fools and worse. America won the Tet offensive on the battlefield, but lost the propaganda war in the media and the universities, exactly as Ho Chi Min predicted.

As a brilliant example of ideological war, revisit Netanyahu’s UN speech on September 24, 2009. He laid out the civilizational differences between Holocaust deniers and Israel. The same arguments about civilization should apply to the war between the Palestinians and Jews in Israel. This is because the Israel/Palestinian conflict is no different than the jihad in Kashmir, India, the Philippines, or in dozens of fronts in Africa.

Now, which one of the two maintains a stronger position—peace or victory? Today Israel desires for peace and the Palestinians insist on victory. Guess who wins? Peace is for losers. Regrettably, Israelis and American Jews are choosing to be the losers. The consequences however are too dire; ultimately, Israel may get their peace, but it may be the peace after jihad’s victory.

Ironically, Israelis and Jews abroad are not the only ones in a state of denial about Islamic politics; they just happen to be at the frontline. President Bush demonstrated after 9/11 that he too had no clue how to fight this Islamic ideological war. Instead of using military force against our enemies, he and his successor– President Obama should have declared ideological war against our true enemy—political Islam.

They seem to lose their war and so will Israel unless some tough questions are faced and actions are taken.

With Jews Like This, the Islamics Itching to Kill Jews Will Have a Field Day

After the Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders address at Temple University in Philadelphia.

via The International Free Press Society
from Anti-Islamic Dutch lawmaker speaks at US college

Geert Wilders said:

"our Western culture is far better than the Islamic culture and we should defend it."

If the spread of Islam continues unabated in the Western world, "you might at the end of the day lose your Constitution," "Wake up, defend your freedom."

[He called for] for an end to Muslim immigration and referring to the Muslim holy book, the Quran, "an evil book" that promotes violence and intolerance.

And an opponent of Geert Wilder's remarks:

"I think it's completely wrong that someone who promotes racism and intolerance should be given a platform at this university," said Temple student Josh Rosenthal. "It's hate speech disguised as free speech."

Judging by his name, that student is Jewish--whether in name only or observant is immaterial.

The point is that the Islamics and their handmaidens of the Left do not feel all that "fair" about Jews and the Jewish state Israel.

Jew-Hatred at American universities Who's behind it?

Quotes from RADARSITE

Cross-posted at Radarsite by Gary Fouse, fousesquawk

It mostly consists of an unholy alliance of Middle Eastern professors who teach in our universities and traditional left-wing radical professors who have taken up the Palestinian cause since it fits like a glove into their own anti-American agenda.


In many cases, academic leftists, many with roots in the Middle East, have joined with traditional American leftists, anarchists and radical Islamists in order to bring an anti-Israel, anti-America, anti-Jew message to college campuses to the point where many Jews do not feel comfortable asserting their Jewish identity on campus. On many campuses, including where I teach at UC-Irvine, Jews have occasionally been accosted, insulted or shoved by pro-Palestinian students during MSU-sponsored events that attack Israel. In addition, MSU-sponsored speakers at UCI have glorified suicide bombers (Amir Abdel Malik Ali) and stated that “Jews are low-life ghetto-dwellers” or “You can take a Jew out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the Jew”. (Mohammed al-Asi). This type of hate speech gets a pass from UCI administrators because it is “free speech”. It should be noted that speakers such as the above, while condemning Israel in one breath, will condemn the US in the next breath. And here, I speak as a first-hand witness.


Leftist professor Lisa Hajjar, formerly of UC Santa Barbara, now at UCLA is a regular basher of Israel and the US. During the Gaza conflict, she participated in a “seminar” at UCLA in which she told a Jewish questioner who took an opposing stand (Eric Golub) that “that Zionist hat on your head is screwed on way too tight”. (The hat was actually a fedora.)

The year is 5770, 2009 in the general count. The day is the tenth of the Month of Tishrei, the Jewish Day of Atonement. It is a day of reflection, a day in which broken promises, wrong deeds and language spoken in haste are being erased, forgiven, forgotten, and a new year begins. But can we forget?

The world stood by uninterested when, for eight years, residents of a small city near the Gaza border could not rest. During the day, their children playing outside or at school were unprotected from a constant rockets bombardment. During the night, everyone was at home, but most homes lacked safety. There was no place to hide, only to run away.

Most residents of Sderot stayed, unable to move. They simply could not afford to do so. Several factories had outlets in the area - from food production to textile manufacturing and afforded work for the families. For the majority of the period, the residents of area were deserted by Israel as by the international community. Every so often politicians stopped there for a photo-op, but nothing of substance was attempted.

My mistake, three years ago, an internal wound was inflicted on the body-Israel. The country's leaders decided to unilaterally withdraw from the entire Gaza Strip. Some 8,000 evacuees joined the circle of victims-heads of families that until then were proud providers for their children, communities and country now bound to wonder the desert. Unlike their forefathers before them, it was now in reverse: from freedom to slavery and destitute.

An entire export industry destroyed, an area once blossoming became the training ground for terrorists and a launching pad for even more rockets.

Israel could have endured longer as it did for eight years. Instead, a decision that should have been made seven or eight years earlier finally was finally taken: Israel will stand no more. Operation Cast Lead resulted in 14 dead in Israel and has significantly diminished the number of rockets and the smuggling operation into Gaza.

Throughout the Operation, Israel took steps to make certain civilian casualties were minimized. These efforts were a precision science, the likes of which no other country would spend its resources or waste its power achieving.

Israel's barbaric enemy knew no boundaries - from using humans as shields, to utilizing hospitals and mosques as centers of operation, headquarters of this octopus of evil. But most egregiously, the enemy aimed for civilian centers, shopping malls and hospitals, knowing all too well that the victims will not only be Jews but Bedouin and Arabs.

A new report is out, and the United Nations (against Israel and the Jewish People) is convening in its aftermath. The report carries the name of a Jew, and the world is awed, marveling at the new discoveries: seeming to prove at last Israel, clearly, is at fault for war crimes.

Lies, Lies and more Lies. Lies with a capital "L." Lies emanating from a hatred for Jews because they are Jews. Lies designed to further weaken the body-Israel. Successful lies for several reasons: First, the world turns a blind eye and wants to believe them, despite evidence to the contrary. Second, Israelis and Jews themselves help create and propagate these lies.

Leading reporters in Israel have termed the Operation, as it was being carried out, a "blood bath." Israel was silent. Leading professors in Israel, who were in range and aim of the rockets, let the world know that Israel deserves what it is getting for it is an Apartheid State. They urged the world to "BOYCOTT ISRAEL." Their colleagues and administrators kept silent. American Jewry then continued kneeling before a new Pharaoh and the choir sang "Hallelujah! Let there be Two States."

On this Day of Atonement 5770 (2009), we need look no further than ourselves to realize a major overhaul is required. Israelis, so it seems, are the root cause of their own problems. They may not instigate trouble, the reign of terror is just several miles away, but they add explosives and corrosives to the fire. Then they are astonished when a bigger explosion hits them squarely in the face.

On the morning of Atonement services, just after the sunset ushered in this holiest of days in the Hebrew calendar, I heard an interpretation of the most known prayer in Judaism, The Shema.

Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad (Hear Oh Israel, the Lord is our G-d, the Lord is One).

The recitation of The Shema is done every day of our lives. It is probably the single most unifying element in Judaism. As our last breath escape our body and we return to our creator, the departed says The Shema as we leave our mortal life behind. When we are in grave peril, we say The Shema. When we are about to commit the most noble and heroic of acts, we enlist G-d to our side by saying The Shema.

When we are about to die to sanctify the name of G-d, we recite The Shema, like Major Roey Klein who threw himself at an exploding grenade, thus saving the lives of his soldiers.

Rabbi Dr. Daryl Temkin explained to the congregants that The Shema is really a call to ourselves to listen. One should ask oneself - is what I am saying of value? Is it interesting? Would I, if I were the listener, want to hear what is being said?

Listen, Oh Israel, listen to your words first. Hear the elements flowing through your veins and arteries, like water from springs and rivers to the great sea. Listen: Who are you? What is it that defines and drives you? You repeat the blessing "Bless are Thou, G-d, our Lord, King of the Universe, who made us alive, and sustained us and brought us to this time and place," but do you pay attention - do you hear?

"Israel," says Dr. Temkin, is an analogy to our dreams: a dream of a nation, a dream of setting an example, of living a life worth living, a dream "For Next Year in Jerusalem." Dreams that have sustained us through the millennia and continue to drive our lives despite all obstacles. These are dreams ever in our prayers, in our celebrations and in Israel's national anthem - THE HOPE.

Let us not be confused-it is not "the hope" of President Hussein Obama, duly elected leader of the American People. Hatikva is the aspiration of a people to live. A people who cannot explain what drives others to hate them so the world's greatest evil turned on them and plotted their extermination. It was the hope of a few against the Nazi war machine in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was the hope and aspiration to have a country by those in Israel under British Mandate. The hope was sang some 62 years ago on a day that changed yearning to reality, and that hope continues to guide us even today, at the dawn of the third millennium.

Listen to your dreams. Can you hear them? Our G-d is ONE, there is no other. Our G-d is our guide and our protector. Our G-d is the light that is within each and every one of us - a light that comes into being even when we are in our mother's womb and stays until we end our journey and our light escapes the mortal bonds to return to the Creator.

On this Day of Atonement, we need look no further than ourselves to find both the guilty party and the strength to make amends, to continue. May we also find a way to deal with those elements from within our midst that collaborate with our enemies-without understanding the harm they do their people.

Alas, the end is not for us to decide. Our actions are meaningless when the Decision Maker is none other than the One who Decides, who assigns life and death, by His wisdom and knowledge. The end, even if near, will forever see the Nation of Israel prevail. The Hebrew people have always been and will be protected by the army of the Devine and cannot be decimated - not by the will of mere men.

Justifying the Holocaust and Promoting a Second One

by Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld

No. 88, 15 October 2009 / 27 Tishrei 5770


Holocaust justification consists of "explaining" that the Jews caused their enemies' anti-Semitism and therefore were responsible for their own later destruction. The first part of this argument was prominent outside Nazi circles as well before World War II and occasionally returns nowadays.

Holocaust promotion is the encouragement of genocide against the Jews or against Israel, the Jewish state. Sometimes this is done explicitly by promoting the idea that Jews should be killed. On other occasions it is the logical outcome of proposed policies. Holocaust promotion typically results from perverse "ideological" positions. In the decades after World War II, the encouragement of the continuing murder of Jews came mainly from old Nazis, neo-Nazis, and some parts of the Muslim world. Holocaust promotion, however, remained a marginal phenomenon in the postwar period of the twentieth century.

Campaigning for the mass murder of Jews is often done without specific reference to the Holocaust. Although most current Holocaust promotion focuses on the destruction of Israel, it also at times aims at Jews elsewhere. Sometimes the perpetrators refer to Hitler or the Germans as having failed to complete the extermination of the Jews and say their activities should be continued. One prominent variant of Holocaust promotion is propagating the view that the Jewish state is illegal and has no right to exist. The only possible way of achieving its elimination is by genocide and mass murder, though this is rarely stated explicitly.

The Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the first head of state since World War II who regularly calls for actions that are tantamount to incitement of genocide. As such he is the prime contemporary example of a Holocaust promoter. His appeals of the last few years for the elimination of Israel-which is equivalent to mass murder-were preceded by those of Ayatollah Khomeini and several other Iranian leaders. Ahmadinejad has greatly increased the intensity of such calls.
