‘PALESTINE’ – APARTHEID
 
The Arab Muslim REAL Apartheid in ‘Palestine’ authority
 
The Brownshirts of Our Time – Phyllis Chesler
The largest practitioner of apartheid in the world is Islam, which practices both gender and religious apartheid. In terms of gender apartheid, Palestinian women – and all women who live under Islam – are oppressed by “honor” killings, forced veiling, segregation, stonings to death for alleged adultery, seclusion/sequestration, female genital mutilation, polygamy, outright slavery, and sexual slavery. Women have few civil, legal, or human rights under Islam.
    Today, the entire Middle East is judenrein. Jews cannot become citizens of Jordan, Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, yet no one accuses those nations of apartheid.

Judenrein palestine …Therefore, instead of Israel being the ‘apartheid state’ in the region, it is the Arab world that is not only apartheid, but also racist and religiously exclusive

Once again we hear criticism of democracy in Israel from the Independent, and a call to suppress minority opinion and deprive it of representation and power. Once again the Independent chides Israelis for not believing in the “peace process”, even though it has led to unprecedented carnage and death in the streets, restaurants and schools of their country since 1993. And once again the Independent smears and defames Jews who oppose surrender of their rights in order to satisfy the vanity of an ignorant US President – a President who believed that his GI uncle liberated Auschwitz, no less.
 
Instead of plotting to cheat the Jews, the EU should support Jewish rights, and tell the Arabs that ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank is illegal and won’t be tolerated. Creating an apartheid judenrein West Bank Palestinian state, which current EU policy is working towards, will not lead to peace, but will just whet the Arab appetite for more war.

Meanwhile Israel today is called ‘”apartheid” and “racist” but the PA and a future Palestinian state will not be? After all the Jews will have deserved everything they get for their 100+ year struggle to defend themselves and find a few thousand square kilometres of land where they can exercise self-determination in their ancestral homeland.
 
No one will cry for the Israeli Jews as their remnants make their way to America and Europe where they will face a growing Islamist threat and once again become a persecuted minority in the lands of their great grandparents or swell the former “Israel lobby” which will now be honestly called the “Jewish lobby”.

HIT SQUADS UNLEASHED
 
[July 1997]
 
“Any Palestinian who sells land in violation of this law will be considered to have committed national treason and will receive the maximum punishment.
 
“Any foreigner who violates this law will be prosecuted on charges of harming the national interest and will receive a life sentence.
 
“Any past or future deals with the occupiers concerning properties in Palestine are considered null and void.” –
 
Excerpts from the Property Law for Foreigners, under consideration by the Palestinian Legislative Council, outlawing land sales to “the government of occupation, its civilian and military institutions and its individual citizens”.
“Imagine the world-wide denunciation had it been a warning of execution to Jews from Israel, for selling land to Palestinians. America and Europe erupt in justified fury.
 
…And so the spectre of semi-official deathsquads has come to the PA self-rule areas, conjuring up memories of apartheid South Africa, the former Yugoslavia–or indeed, of PLO-controlled Lebanon.
 
The campaign began on May 4, when Yasser Arafat’s “Justice Minister”, Freih Abu Meddein, announced the PA would start to enforce an old Jordanian law, which made the selling of land to Jews a capital offence. (Jordan rescinded the statute when it signed a 1994 peace treaty with Israel.)
 
Four days later, news broke that a prime property on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives–in a part of the city Palestinians want for the capital of a future independent state–had been sold to a Jewish businessman, and then donated to a Jewish religious seminary.
 
Ahmed Tibi, an Israeli Arab politician and Arafat aide, reacted to the sale during a radio interview by warning: “Whoever sells his house to Jews, has sold his soul to Satan and has done a despicable act.”
 
With the groundwork thus laid by the Arab leaders, and amid angry reactions to the law from Israelis and some US Congressmen–although not yet the State Department–the violence was set to begin.
 
Seventy-year-old Bashiti, an Israeli citizen who lived in eastern Jerusalem, was reportedly involved in the closing of the Mount of Olives land deal.
 
On May 8, he was lured to a meeting at a Jerusalem hotel by a woman who told him she had buyers for two houses in Ram’Allah he was trying to sell. From there it appears he was abducted.
 
That evening, he was seen at the Ram’Allah offices of Arafat’s personal security unit, Force 17.
 
Five hours later, in the words of an Israeli official, “the hospital in Ram’Allah telephoned his wife and told her she could come and pick up his body.”
 
He had been found dead, with his hands bound, his skull crushed, and his mouth sealed with plastic tape.
 
Pouring salt on the grief-stricken family’s wound, the PA-installed Islamic mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, refused to allow Bashiti a Muslim funeral: “Such a person is not a Muslim and according to our religion we shouldn’t pray over the body in a mosque. He should not be buried in a Muslim cemetery.”
 
The body of Abu Sarah, the second man suspected of selling land to Israelis, was found in Ram’Allah on May 16. He had been shot several times in the head.

US-Funded Racist Apartheid Government Will Execute Man Who Sold Land To Enemy Religion

Who is the Apartheid state?
Palestinian gets death sentence for selling land to Jews
A Palestinian military court has sentenced a man to death by hanging for selling land to an Israeli company.
Land sales are considered treason by the Palestinians because of their long-running dispute with the Israelis, however the sentence is unlikely to be implemented.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas routinely withholds the required approval for executions. Several others are on death row as suspected informants for Israel.
The sentence was handed down Tuesday in a military court in the West Bank city of Hebron after two days of closed-door hearings.

PA: Death penalty for those who sell land to Jews
By KHALED ABU TOAMEH
Palestinian Authority,  Jerusalem,  Salaam Fayad 
The Palestinian Authority has issued yet another warning to Palestinians against selling their homes or properties to Jews, saying those who violate the order would be accused of “high treason” – a charge that carries the death penalty.
The latest warning was issued on Wednesday by the Chief [Islamic] Judge of the Palestinian Authority, Sheikh Tayseer Rajab Tamimi, who reminded the Palestinians of an existing fatwa [religious decree] than bans them from selling property to Jews.
 
Article: PA: Death penalty for those who sell land to Jews
51. Nothing in South African apartheid came close to this racism. Where is the UN Human Rights Commission? Rhetorical question. They probably wrote it.

Title: What could more apartheid than killing people for selling land?  
The Muslim countries (yes every single one of them) practise the aspects of apartheid that go beyond anything the South African government ever considered.
Death for selling land to a person based upon the buyers religion is one of the most racist acts.
And morons here defend this racism and then those same individuals attempt with pathetic comparisons and lies to claim that we somehow are the racists.

PA’s fallacious premises
 
Palestinian Authority demands based on egregiously false assumptions
 
Arlene Kushner Published:  04.20.09, 12:06
 
We here in Israel have been asleep at the wheel. In a rush of concessionary zeal after Oslo, we chose to refrain from making our own case. At first this decision, made at a governmental level, was intended to demonstrate our eagerness for peace. But after a time it was almost as if we had forgotten how to speak for ourselves with vigor and forthrightness.
 
Meanwhile, the Palestinians have waxed inordinately successful at promoting their positions – you’ll find no concessionary zeal on their part. And today the international community swallows those positions whole – without either setting them into historical context or doing a fair and reasonable analysis of precisely what it is that is being promoted as a “given.”
 
In fairness to the members of the international community, there has been scant reason for them to analyze the validity of Palestinian Authority premises as we haven’t been doing so ourselves. This situation must change, and that change must begin here at home with a forthright challenge to several Palestinian presumptions. The Netanyahu government, at long last, gives hope of being ready to do this. Among the many issues that require a public airing are these:
 
Mahmoud Abbas, PA president, and others speaking on behalf of the Palestinian position, regularly refer to the “June 4, 1967 border.” What Abbas et al have in mind is the line, commonly called the Green Line, behind which Israel operated before the Six Day War that began on June 5, 1967. Implied is that this line constitutes Israel’s “real” border, and that Israeli presence beyond this is automatically “illegitimate.” Thus, goes the PA argument, there can be no justice, no fairness that will lead to peace, unless Israel returns to her border.
 
Yet the simple, irrefutable, historical fact is that this line was not a border at all, but merely an armistice line. It was drawn when hostilities ceased at the end of the 1948-49 War of Independence — a war initiated, it should be noted, by the Arab League, which attacked the nascent state of Israel as soon as independ¬ence was declared.
 
Not only was it an armistice line, it was intended to be temporary. In the signed armistice agreement with Jordan (which was on the other side of that line) there was a clause stating that this line would not prejudice future negotiations on a permanent border. Thus the case cannot legitimately be made that the Green Line has any legal status in determining Israel’s “true” border. It does not. That border has yet to be determined. In negotiations.
 
Intolerable inequity of demands
Even more egregious is the claim made by the PA regarding the land on the other side of the line that it sees as defining Israel’s border. Its leaders maintain that it must be totally Judenrein. This is a position that is inherently morally offensive, and yet it is accepted wholesale by the world.
 
When the Palestinians declare with great self-righteousness that “settlements are an obstacle to peace,” what they are actually pushing for is the total removal of Jewish presence on the land they are seeking for their state.
 
It’s past time to ask why this is all right.
 
This demand is particularly ironic in light of Palestinian charges that Israel is an “apartheid” state. “Apartheid” is a buzz word, utilized spuriously to delegitimize Israel: anyone who has spent time in Israel and seen the freedom with which Arabs walk the streets and secure equal services knows full well that there is nothing remotely resembling apartheid here.
 
The situation grows even more ludicrous as the Palestinian leadership has just rejected the demand of Israeli Prime Minster Netanyahu that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
 
On Saturday, Azzan al-Ahmed, a close Abbas associate and major Fatah official, declared that, “We reject Netanyahu’s demand to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. This demand illustrates the racist nature of Israel…”
 
If Israel – which permits its Arab citizens (citizens!) to elect representatives to the Knesset and provides them with full health care and other rights – is “racist” for insisting that the nation must be recognized as having a Jewish character, what, precisely does this make the PA – which seeks to totally drive out every Jew from the land it envisions to be part of a future state?
 
How long will this intolerable inequity of demands fail to be noted by those who are promoting that “two-state solution”?

‘Palestinian’ Apartheid: Gaza campaign of terror against Christians and Westerners

October 19, 2008

Gaza campaign of terror against Christians and Westerners

Gaza : Campagne de terreur contre les chrétiens et les occidentaux. Gaza campaign of terror against Christians and Westerners.

Since the Israeli disengagement from Gaza, this strip of land is “juderein” in the sense that there is a single Jew who can live there. So now it is the turn of Christians to be shown the exit direction, with “the suitcase or the coffin”.

The experts report that there past two years to an upsurge in Gaza attacks against Christians and people perceived as Western culture, especially since the seizure of power by Hamas in June 2007. The targets are churches, Christian schools and the United Nations, the American International School, libraries and cyber cafes.

The last date of incident last Saturday, 31 May, where individuals were attacked with rifle guards the Al-Manara school, stole a vehicle belonging to the Baptist Society of the Holy Book, who runs this school, and threatened the director. The leadership of Hamas does nothing to stop the attacks and nobody has been brought to justice.

Involvement of international jihad.

A report by the Israeli Security has established that there was an increase in the number of attacks against individuals and Christian institutions, as well as those treated with Western values. These attacks are perpetrated by elements related to international jihad and radical Islam. Over the past two years movements associated with Al-Qaeda took responsibility for attacks against Christians and Christian institutions in order to expel openly declared Christians out of Gaza.

The Christian community in Gaza has about 3,000 people. Below is a list of attacks against Christians date, published by the Center for Intelligence and Information on Terrorism of IICC (Israel Intelligence Heritage and Commemoration Center):

* May 18 2008: a high intensity bomb exploded at the entrance to a fast food restaurant near Al-Quds University in downtown Gaza City. The restaurant was completely destroyed. Groups associated with Al-Qaeda have claimed responsibility for attacks with the stated goal of driving Christians out of Gaza.

* May 16 2008 a bomb exploded outside the school Rahabat al-Wardia headed by nuns in the neighborhood of Tel al-Hawa in Gaza City… The previous year, when Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip, the school had been subject to theft and arson.

* April 3 2008: a memorial cemetery for foreigners in the Gaza Strip was destroyed by a bomb.

* Feb 15 2008: Three armed men with the “Army of Islam in the land of Ribat”, a network headed by Mumtaz Dughmush, break into the library and YMCA trigger a bomb that caused extensive damage. Police condemned…, describing the attack as “criminal act” and promising to investigate. The security forces of Hamas have arrested a number of men of the Army of Islam but was released shortly after, following a recent threat to use force to free them.

* Jan 10 2008: a group called “Army of Believers – Al-Qaida in Palestine” attacked the International School in Beit Lahiya twice, torching vehicles and stealing equipment. to a statement issued two days later, the school was accused of making polytheism and propagate “hatred of Islam”. The attacks have been organized to coincide with the visit of U.S. President George W. Bush en Israël. Bush in Israel.

* Dec 31 2007: “Friends of the Bayt al-Sunna Maqdis” a manifesto published on the website Pal-today, affiliated with Islamic Jihad, threatening to attack all those who participated in the celebrations of the new Christian year.

* October 6 2007: militants linked to Hamas abducted Rami Ayad Khadr at his home and killed by a bullet. He was a Christian who worked for the Holy Bible Society.

* June 19 2007: at the capture by Hamas in the Gaza Strip of Hamas gunmen attacked and ransacked a monastery and the church.

* April 21 2007: elements linked to international Jihad attacked the American International School in Gaza City.

* April 15 2007: A group calling itself “the swords of truth in the land of Ribat” detonated bombs in two Internet cafes and a shop selling Christian books, causing damage.

Muslim gunmen crushed gates, set Christian building ablaze (more on the Palestinian Islamic Apartheid)

‘Peace partner’ accused in YMCA attack Muslim gunmen crushed gates, set
Christian building ablaze

Posted: October 14, 2008 8:23 pm Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

JAFFA, Israel – Members of Palestinian
Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization were arrested yesterday
for allegedly leading a 2006 anti-Christian attack in which gunmen set fire to
the Young Men’s Christian Association in the West Bank city of Qalqiliya, WND
has learned.

Following the arrest of four militants in conjunction with
the attack, Rabih Elkhangy, the Fatah mayor of Qalqiliya, held a press
conference yesterday in which he claimed the arrested attackers were from the
rival Hamas terror organization.

But WND has learned that of the four
arrested, two are Fatah members, one is a Fatah sympathizer and the fourth is a
member of Jihadiya Silafiya, a Palestinian Islamist organization ideologically
allied with al-Qaida values.

Sources in the security organizations of
Qalqiliya admitted Hamas members were not arrested for the attack. They pointed
out most Hamas leaders from Qalqiliya were jailed by the PA in recent months for
other purposes.

Palestinian Christians live in constant fear [Islamic apartheid]

February 20, 2008

Palestinian Christians live in constant fear [Islamic apartheid]
nationalpost ^ | 02-18-2008

Palestinian Christians live in constant fear National Post, Canada … The problem is not their behaviour but, in the eyes of the violent Islamist jihadists, their very presence. They must simply live in hope that some faraway event does not inflame the anti-Christian wrath of their neighbours. Is it any wonder that Christians in such situations desire to emigrate? Could anyone judge harshly the few thousand Christians in Gaza if they were to leave entirely?… and the fact that it [the YMCA attack] was not big news, illustrates the dire situation faced by many Christians living in the Palestinian territories.

[‘Palestinian’ Islamic Apartheid’] Gunmen destroy Gaza Strip’s YMCA library, kidnap guards
Feb 16, 2008
Although no group claimed responsibility, Fatah officials accused Hamas of being behind the attack. However, Hamas strongly denied responsibility, saying it had ordered an immediate investigation.
Several al-Qaida-affiliated groups in the Gaza Strip have claimed responsibility for a series of attacks on Christian figures and institutions over the past two years. The groups said they would continue their attacks until all 3,000 Christians had left the Gaza Strip.

Gaza Muslims continue ethnic-cleansing effort
Jerusalem Newswire, Israel – Feb 17, 2008
February 17, 2008
Muslims attacked the library of the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) in Gaza Friday in the latest move to drive Christians and Christianity out of the Islamist-controlled Strip.
According to a report in The Jerusalem Post Sunday, gunmen – some masked, others not – “stormed” the library, kidnapped two security guards, looted electronic equipment and stole a vehicle, then detonated a number of bombs inside the building, totally destroying the book collection.
Intent on making the area Islamically “pure,” Muslim Arabs have looked for “reasons” to “justify” their targeting of the tiny Christian community – around 3000 strong – that lives in the midst of Gaza’s 1.4 million Muslims.
The persecution has increased since Hamas violently took control of Gaza a year ago.
On October 6 last year, Muslims abducted Rami Ayyad, the manager of Gaza’s only Christian bookstore that had been bombed by masked Muslims six months earlier.
Ayyad, 31, was the father of two small children; his wife was pregnant with their third. His shot and repeatedly stabbed body was found a day after he disappeared.
For Gaza’s Muslims, ridding themselves of any active Christian presence would be cherry on top after successfully forcing Israel to remove every single Jew from Gaza in 2005.
“Palestinian” crowds have often been heard to chant: “First we’ll fight on Saturday and then on Sunday” – meaning, after they rid themselves of Jews they will rid themselves of Christians..

Hypocrisy, Thy Name is “Arab”

Hypocrisy, Thy Name is “Arab”

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Arabs have been unanimous in rejecting the idea of Israel being a “Jewish state.” Their reasons are that, by definition, a Jewish state would be discriminatory against Arabs and Muslims.If you define “Jewish” in purely religious terms, that would mean that any state that defines itself as “Islamic” is, by definition, equally guilty of this discrimination. If you define “Jewish” in ethnic or national terms, then any state that defines itself as “Arab” would be equally guilty of the racism that Israel is being accused of.

Time to check out the official hypocrisy of Israel’s critics, and note the deafening silence towards this supposed Arab and Islamic racism:

3) the return to God in the Hereafter, and the constructive role of this belief in the course of man’s ascent towards God;
4) the justice of God in creation and legislation;
5) continuous leadership and perpetual guidance, and its fundamental role in ensuring the uninterrupted process of the revolution of Islam; 6) the exalted dignity and value of man, and his freedom coupled with responsibility before God; in which equity, justice, political, economic, social, and cultural independence, and national solidarity are secured by recourse to: a) continuous leadership of the holy persons, possessing necessary qualifications, exercised on the basis of the Koran and the Sunnah, upon all of whom be peace;
b) sciences and arts and the most advanced results of human experience, together with the effort to advance them further;
c) negation of all forms of oppression, both the infliction of and the submission to it, and of dominance, both its imposition and its acceptance.

“Palestine”’s constitution:

ARTICLE 1

Palestine is part of the large Arab World, and the Palestinian people are part of the Arab Nation. Arab Unity is an objective which the Palestinian People shall work to achieve.

ARTICLE 4

1. Islam is the official religion in Palestine. Respect and sanctity of all other heavenly religions shall be maintained.
2. The principles of Islamic Shari’a shall be the main source of legislation.

So why, exactly, is a Jewish state (whose record of equal rights far surpasses those of any of the Arab nations) morally worse than the large number of Arab and Islamic states?

History Upside Down The Roots of Palestinian Fascism and the Myth of Israeli Aggression

December 18, 2007

History Upside Down The Roots of Palestinian Fascism and the Myth of Israeli AggressionDAVID MEIR-LEVI

Overview
Reviews
Excerpt

[Dec. 18, 2007]

In the United Nations, on university campuses, and among a growing number of our most prestigious Western newspapers, the historical record has been rewritten so thoroughly that Israel is seen as the worst of the oppressive Western occupiers of the Third World. So successful has this campaign been that Palestinian spinmeisters and their apologists have effectively declared that the Israelis, a people living in the shadow of the Holocaust, are themselves “Nazis.” How could this happen? How did unacceptable anti-Semitism morph into justifiable anti-Zionism, and odious Jew-hatred turn into a politically correct Israel-hatred?

In History Upside Down historian David Meir-Levi traces the ideological DNA behind Palestinian Nationalism and its ludicrous “alternative” histories, revealing how Nazi Fascism gave the Arab world’s amorphous hatred of the Jews an intellectual structure and how Soviet communism masked its genocidal intentions with the mantle of national liberation.

Meir-Levi then explodes the cornerstone myths that this movement created – myths that rationalize and celebrate decades of unremitting terror and genocidal ambitions, in effect turning the history of the Middle East upside down and inside out, making the victim the aggressor and the aggressor the victim.

History Upside-Down is the first wave in a counterattack against this Arab war on history. It rejects the idea that the basic situation in the Middle Easthas changed since the United Nations first established the Jewish state and the Palestinian state that would have stood alongside it. Sadly, argues Meir-Levi, the issue in the Middle East is today what it has been since the Muslim invasion in the seventh century: the Arabs’ hatred of the Jews.

Arab Racism Must Go! There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings

Arab racism must go

There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings

Jackie Levy Published: 12.03.07,
Despite all the ceremonial declarations uttered in Annapolis, my attention was drawn to a small story about the organizers tasked with planning the seating arrangements. As those were peace talks, and as all of us want peace, the organizers were warned about the need to ensure that no Syrian or Saudi official unintentionally encounters some Zionist pest.

This was indeed a large venue, but still, people (just like monkeys) sometimes have to go to the bathroom or wash their hands. In short, they may have to pass through a narrow corridor where, you never know, you may encounter one of those – well, here the speaker is supposed to venomously utter the word: “Zionist.”
Syria’s motives for attending the conference were quite clear. They came to score points and extricate themselves, as much as is possible, out of the axis of evil. In short, they came because of Syrian issues – all the rest didn’t quite interest them, and it was not easy for them as it is. But to bump into an Israeli?! A Jew! Face to face, with no Condoleezza or a sea of officials around. Just you and I. Now that’s way too much, being forced to exchange glances or even mumble something. This is where we draw the line.
After all, Arabs are honorable people, and the Israelis, on top of all the other trouble, have this bad habit of using such incidents in order to suddenly show friendliness, utter some kind of silly joke, and then tell everyone about it. Years after Annapolis, some Israeli minister or advisor could write in his memoirs how he made a quick comment to the Syrian official about the crappy American coffee, and yes, he thinks he saw a hint of a smile on the Syrian’s face – for a moment there, the Israeli will say, we were able to overcome the raging conflict and just be two men, Khaled and I, yearning for some good coffee.

The end of the story is that it was not easy at all to arrange the chairs. Sophisticated algorithms were utilized and multifaceted maneuvers previously only known in Astronomy were used, so that under no circumstances would an Arab and a Jew come in contact or some share kind of proximity that could hurt the feelings of the nation.

Our enemies are racist
Simply put, our enemies, among other things, are quite racist. As opposed to some stigmas, it turns out that arrogance is not an Israeli monopoly. It’s amazing how the Arab world managed to convince the West that the racist hatred is merely legitimate religious sensitivity that must be taken into consideration.
We should also take a moment to consider the fact that for us these things always sound like a silly joke. We treat it the same way we ridicule the Arab refusal to compete against Israeli athletes. None of us, with the exception of the margins of the far Right, have a problem meeting an Arab, shaking his hand, or showing sympathy for him.
The thing is, on their side it’s an absolutely serious matter. It’s hard to believe that anyone in the Arab media was joking about the seating arrangements.

For years we’ve been reprimanding ourselves over our attitude to Arabs and our racist jokes. Yet while we were busy reprimanding, we almost failed to notice that something changed around here. When was the last time you heard a derogatory term like “towel head” being used seriously, without any sarcasm? When was the last time an Israeli film featured an Arab character that was less than divine?
Meanwhile, the exact opposite is happening on the other side. And no, we’re not talking about a minor issue. Even if all the roadblocks will be removed, there will be no peace around here as long as Muslim Arabs don’t view Jews as human beings.

Darfur Refugee Debunks Israeli Apartheid

Darfur_refugeesDespite the legal limbo, a Darfur refugee debunks apartheid comparisons. Sanka, a Sudanese Muslim told reporter Annette Young of The Scotsman:

“The Jewish people I’ve met here understand my plight. For the first time in my life I feel free. I know that sounds funny but I do. I feel freer here than I ever did in Sudan.”
