ISRAEL VS ARAB – THE WAR OF THE HUMANITARIAN VS THE UN-HUMANITARIAN

January 22, 2008

 

  

ISRAEL VS ARAB – THE WAR OF THE HUMANITARIAN VS THE UN-HUMANITARIAN
January 22, 2008
No one has been talking in the mainstream media about the daily “Palestinian” barrage of missiles aimed specifically at Israeli kids, the southern Israel under siege of “Palestinian” occupation, the trembling fear of Israeli women for their children’s safety in Sderot ( Fear and trauma as rockets impact Israeli town), but everyone is up in arms if Israel acts.
No one has been talking in mainstream media as Israel has been successfully eliminating terrorists [with unimaginable efforts in carrying it out] without any damage upon civilians in hundreds of operations, but I bet you, you’ll hear them loud and clear, if its humane precision-tactics fails just once.
Just as no one in the mainstream media talks about the constant Israel vs Arab, as humanitarian vs un-humanitarian war, “Palestinian” and Hezbollah Arabs always try to draw Israel into responding in operations, awaiting cheerfully such responds to play the fake “victim” card, Israel – however – is never happy to carry out any anti terror activities, and when reluctantly it has to go ahead with it, it puts immense efforts to fail Arabs’ desire for mass casualties among its civilians, Israel’s struggle against Arab cruelty on its population is relentless, but never appreciated.
Why is humanitarian Israel still (January 2008) supplying two thirds of fuel supply to un-humanitarian “Palestinians”?
I mean, What would one expect from a self hating sickening hypocritical typical whining of the NPR reporting about a “humanitarian crisis” in Gaza? (Jan. 2008 at the height of Arab attacking rockets) What’s “humanitarian” about Hamas-tan? [as twisted NPR is, it first reports of what Hamas “says” that all fuel supply is shut down, only thereafter is quotes Israel’s declaration and harsh accusation that the “Palestinians” simply LIE, and that two thirds are still supplied, as if the world hasn’t seen enough of the minus zero credibility of “what Palestinian Pallywood says”], the cruel terrorist militant Islamic totalitarian regime? The oppression of non Muslims (Christians per se)? The investments of its limited resources into deadly Jihad, or the criminal use of its civilians to attack Israeli civilians via rockets and other cowardice methods?
Try and make a survey, a poll on how many are really aware of the targets by the Arabs, kids! how they fire exactly when and where the children go to kindergarten (Barrage of rockets hits Sderot as kids go to school), the fact that with God’s grace the damage is low is of course totally irrelevant to Arabs’ [usual] genocide attempts.
As it is rare for the NPR, it shockingly did interview some Israelis about the Hamas attack of Israeli civilians and how Israel should respond to it, as one Israeli has put it very real: “We Israelis have been setting us up in high moral standards we have a huge dilemma on how to respond”.
Yet, it is rather the Arab Palestinian “victimhood” that still manages to generate fans.
Amazing how the terrible unromantic cult of destruction is still not seen by some as what it is, a self inflicted cult, and that no one else can ever be blamed on whatever is going on there.
And just as you thought that the Fatah is much better, you hear that the “moderate” Abbas regime decided to allocate 40% of the billions of dollars in aid [the Europeans have pledged to give] to the Hamas terror “government”.
I have got news for the fake “humanitarian” singers – reporters in biased media: There’s nothing humanitarian about pointing fingers anywhere outside the “Palestinian” cruel leadership and those that elect them.

Palestinian” Muslims’ Special Crimes on Children (of both sides)

January 22, 2008


“Palestinian” Muslims’ Special Crimes on
Children (of both sides)
January 2008
GENOCIDE BOMBING
When the typical “Palestinian” suicide/genocide bomber at the Sbarro pizzeria programmed himself to be blown up exactly when the place is crowded with little children, toddlers, when the suicide/genocide bomber woman ate slowly in the Haifa restaurant, and carefully with cold blood (nothing of that “desperate” crap they have been telling you all along) positioned herself next to the table of kids, to perform her highest deed [as a (radical) Muslim woman] on earth in the ‘holy-Islamic-Jihad’ hellish “call”, these examples are to teach us who they are up against. It’s useless to argue with those that are helplessly brainwashed in the Arabist Goliath campaign as if the Islamic “Palestinian” has any “struggle”, the real “fight” they have is of course the innocent, the younger the better.
Nor is there any point in debating the Islamists, Arabists who try to make a point of “who has more casualties”, the fact that they fail in their attacks, thank God and due to relentless Israel’s army of defense, is totally irrelevant to the fact that their attempts are always to cause more and more of the unarmed civilian Israelis to be murdered in cold blood, or injured painfully, take for example those cruel and inhumane tactics of nail bombs with its multiple shrapnel that penetrate into the bones of the human body and cause unimaginable pain and suffering — exactly the intent, just another “freedom fighting” act of course.
QASSAM
The recent (2007 – 2008) Arab terror barrage of thousands of Qassam missiles on Israel’s unarmed innocent residents, is specifically aimed at children, it is done in a specific time and place, when the little kids go to kindergarten.
OWN KIDS
Then again, What can you expect from a death – cult that aims at its own kids, that uses its children as cannon fodders, that would do anything to bring about their deaths in order to play the “victim” on
international cameras.
Because no one talks about the high risking anti terror operations humane Israel is always taking against Islamic Jihadists and against racist Arab militants, Fattah, Hamas or Hezbollah, all those operations that were/are without any collateral damage but successful in precision acting on eliminating dangerous terror masters are totally ignored, but is always criticized when vicious Arab terrorists can finally happily point to some fallen kid or woman they grabbed to shoot, hide behind.

Palestinians brought problems on themselves

Jacob Amir: Palestinians brought problems on themselves
A letter to the editor — 12/07/2007 10:07 am

Dear Editor: The authors of the column “Jews need to speak out on abuse of Palestinians” blame Israel for the difficulties facing the residents of Gaza.

One wonders if the authors can imagine what would have happened if, immediately after Israel left the Gaza Strip, all terror activity from there ceased. Which means no rocket launching, no weapons smuggling, no efforts to bomb the border crossing points, no efforts to send suicide murderers into Israel.

Then all the crossing points would have remained open, there would have been free merchandise exchange, thousands of Gazans would have been able to work in Israel, and it would have been possible to travel between the West Bank and Gaza. The Gazan economy would have been much stronger, and the daily life of the citizens would have been much better.

The authors do not tell us that the Palestinians chose to continue with their war of terror. As a result they brought nothing but disaster on their people. They infiltrated into Israel, killing two soldiers and abducting a third. In the last two years, since Israel left the Gaza Strip to the last inch, more than 2,000 Kasam rockets have been fired at Israeli villages and towns.

Like any other country Israel will do its best to protect its citizens.

Jacob Amir, Jerusalem, Israel

ISRAEL – PEACE – SURVIVAL, NOT GENOCIDE!

November 19, 2007

ISRAEL – PEACE – SURVIVAL, NOT GENOCIDE!

In the beginning…

Israel has always faced genocide, from the moment the Islamo Arab fascist leader, the infamous [later on exposed as Hitler’s buddy] Mufti Haj Amin Al Husseini has called, incited, led to “kill the Jews” in the 1920s.

The Mufti, that prior to inciting to “kill the Yahud [Jews]” & leading massacres such as Hebron 1929 and the Farhud in Baghdad 1941, has participated in the massacres and genocide of Christians, the Armenian Genocide that is [http://Armenian-Genocide.org], where 1.5 Million Christians were brutally murdered.
An ally of the Nazi “Fuhrer”: Adolph Hitler, and led the Bosnian Muslim SS to commit crimes against Serb Christians in 1943.

They are milestones in the beginning of the attempt of genocide, the massacres of the 1920s, the more notorious among them: the Jerusalem pogroms 1920-21, the Hebron massacre 1929.

So were, time and time again, the open declarations by the Arab wolf-nations that tried again and again to swallow the little Israel lamb, or in their words: to throw the Jews into the sea”.

Their self destructive critical rejection of the UN’s partition plan in 1948 to have both, a Jewish state alongside an Arab state, was the same ethnic cleansing message, as they were never about being “for their [Arab] people”, but rather against the Jews, not to support anything for Palestinian Arabs, but to eradicate any Jewish presence, which is why the Arab world chose so viciously to attack immediately the little re-instated reborn state in it’s historic place.

So was their real motivation for adherence to Arab leaders’ call at that time: to abandon their homes, only for a “short while” so that the Arab armies could defeat the Jews into the sea.


Bombers Target – Mass Crowds

The term ‘Genocide bombers’ referring to suicide/homicide bombers, the plague-phenomenon that was pushed mainly by that butcher Egyptian born “Palestinian-made-icon” Yasser Arafat, a well suited term, as the open and clear attempt is “to kill as many unarmed people as possible”, that is the clear plan of a “suicide” bomber, packed with explosives, with metal particles/nails etc., their plan: to be detonated in the most crowded of places on unarmed innocent civilians [bus stops, shopping malls, eating places, etc., where the crowds are], the bigger the crowed the “better”… preferably kids.


What they lie to the world about a “struggle”

No matter how hard the international Goliath propaganda, greased by Arab Muslim giants oil, based in the entity called “Palestine” or Pallywood, that it’s so called “struggle” is for something supposedly “human” demands, [to which “struggle” in it of itself is already a pure propaganda term, it’s intended to make sure you “get it”, that it’s the weak against the powerful – presumably, when the truth is that the powerful is the “Palestinian” attacker rather, that couldn’t care less about his own children that he uses for shields and for human bombs, whereas the real weak is moral Israel, that is the ONLY entity in the middle east, that does care so much for non terrorists Arab deaths,] is null and void in face of the past and present reality of the real danger Israel faces and is up against, a “people” that is supporting parties, ideologies & actions of total crimes against humanity (the real ones, not the propaganda term by the Arab hijacked UN when tarnishing Israel’s self defense actions), genocide (Fatah is no “moderate”, http://pmw.org.il has been documenting their mainstream education & official PA media of de-legitimization of Israel, hatred of Jews, glorifying mass murder, etc., it’s just that Hamas is more extreme), has no legitimacy to lie to the west that it really wants something “human”, so it can be closer to it’s ultimate desired ‘ethnic cleansing’ goal.

Such a group of people is overwhelmingly wrong morally and is the only culprit in it’s children’s plight, in giving them instead of life, a death cult of Jihad, “martyrdom” and instilling racial hatred.


Death Cult upon its own people too [fake “victims”]

Such a group that is willing to kill (via their tactics or directly as in the ‘Muhammad Al Dura’ affair and more) it’s own children for the sake to appear as victims, just how much of “victims”, can the Arab ‘Palestinians’ still be called?


Their [Hamas backed by much of their mainstream] final goal of global domination by radical -Islam

Who guarantees that a [never before in history, a first!] “Palestinian” state given to these Arabs will diminish their desire for global domination and not be another convenient tool towards it?
Or are we to continue to ignore the thousands marching in Gaza for a Caliphate?


What “land”?

Nor is it really all about “land”:
1) what “land” did the Arab Muslim attackers/murderers seek to “liberate” before 1948?
3) why don’t we pay attention to what they say?
2) the Iranian Islamic Hitler that tries to deny the Holocaust in order to prepare for a new one, has no “borders issues with Israel, still it declares openly to “wipe it off map”, if this is not [Islamic] fascism, what is?

The History of the Words “Palestine” and “Palestinians”
The Philistines were not Arabs nor even Semites, they were most closely related to the Greeks. They did not speak Arabic. They had no connection, ethnic, linguistic or historical with Arabia or Arabs. The name “Falastin” that Arabs today use for “Palestine” is not an Arabic name. It is the Arab pronunciation of the Greco-Roman “Palastina”; which is derived from the Plesheth, (root palash) was a general term meaning rolling or migratory. This referred to the Philistine’s invasion and conquest of the coast from the sea.

The use of the term “Palestinian” for an Arab ethnic group is a modern political creation which has no basis in fact – and had never had any international or academic credibility before 1967.

The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians.
The current myth is
that these Arabs were long established in “Palestine”, until the Jews came and
“displaced” them. The fact is, that recent Arab immigration into the Land of
Israel displaced the Jews. That the massive increase in Arab population was
very recent is attested by the ruling of the United Nations: That any Arab who
had lived in the Holy Land for two years and then left in 1948 qualifies as a
“Palestinian refugee”.

The Father of Islamists, Amin Al Husseini, the man who officialized Islamic hate, declared Holy War on the West and the Jews. Before Amin Al Husseini, there was no hatred between the Jews and the Arabs. Before Al Husseini, there was no Pan-Islamic Jihad against the West and non-Muslims. Bin Ladin and many other terror chiefs are believers in Al Husseini and have dedicated their life to his ideology.

Amin Al-Husseini, was born in Jerusalem under Ottoman rule. Al-Husseini swears allegiance to the Ottoman Empire during the Armenian genocide.

Allegiance to Ottoman Empire and Islamic world take-over will be echoed by Osama Bin Laden in his post-September 11th declaration.

1917 Amin Al-Husseini returns to Palestine. He brings with him lessons of genocide and the vision of leading a Pan-Islamic empire, where Jews and Christians are not acceptable. 1920/1921 Amin Al-Husseini becomes lead figure in organizing riots against locals.

Between 1922 and 1948, the Arabs were given 90% of the Palestine Mandate — a territory in which no country existed and which had been promised by its British rulers to the Jews. The Jews were forbidden to live in the Arab portions of the mandate — a concession by the British to Arab racism. At the same time, because the Jews were a tolerant and democratic people, nearly a million Arabs were assimilated into the portion the Jews controlled where they were given more rights than Arabs anywhere else in the Middle East. The Arab response to this compromise was a seven-nation military assault on this new state, which was called “Israel,” and was a state largely composed of recent survivors of the worst genocide in human history. From the outset, then, the Middle East conflict was a war of xenophobic backwardness and ethnic barbarism waged against a persecuted people who intended no harm to their neighbors and sought only peace.
For the next fifty years until this very day, the Arab states have waged continuous warfare against the Jews with the intent of exterminating them or at the very least driving them into the sea. The current American “peace movement” is filled with voices calling for the “liberation of Palestine from the river to the sea,” i.e., demanding that the West Bank and Israel be Judenrein — free of the Jewish state.

Arab Countries Reaction to the State of Israel:
The invasion was hardly surprising. Mufti el-Husseini, one of the worst Nazi collaborators, called for Jihad against Jews in a 1943 broadcast from Radio Berlin during the height of the Holocaust:

Kill the Jews wherever you find them, this is pleasing to Allah.
Prior to the 1948 war against Israel, the Iraqi Prime Minister said all the Arabs would need would be “a few brooms” to drive the Jews into the sea. All they were waiting for was the British and said, “once we get the green light from the British we can easily throw out the Jews.” [Quote from Sir Geoffrey Furlonge, “Palestine Is My Country
: The Story of Musa Alami (Praeger Press, 1969)]

On the day that Israel declared its independence (May 15, 1948), Azzam Pasha, Secretary General of the Arab League, at Cairo press conference, (reported in the New York Times, May 16, 1948) declared “jihad”, a holy war. He said that the Arab states rejected partition and intended to set up a “United State of Palestine.” He then stated:


This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades”.

Palestinian Refugees, invited to leave in 1948
http://www.eretzyisroel.org/~jkatz/refugees2.html

On the strategic level, there must be a pan-Arab plan to reach our goal. The goal of all of us is to liberate Palestine from the Israeli aggressors. To use words that people do not like: we will throw Israel into the sea. This phrase, by the way, is the truth. Either they will throw us into the sea, or we will throw them into the sea. There is no compromise.”

[…Excerpt from Prof. Sadeq]
http://emperors-clothes.com/letters/arabracism.htm

Habib Issa said in the New York Lebanese paper, Al Hoda (June 8, 1951):

The Secretary-General of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha, assured the Arab peoples that the occupation of Palestine and Tel Aviv would be as simple as a military promenade. He pointed out that they were already on the frontiers and that all the millions the Jews had spent on land and economic development would be easy booty, for it would be a simple matter to throw Jews into the Mediterranean….Brotherly advice was given to the Arabs of Palestine to leave their land, homes and property and to stay temporarily in neighboring fraternal states, lest the guns of the invading Arab armies mow them down.
http://www.palestinefacts.org/pf_independence_refugees_arabs_why.php

little is said about the Jews who fled from Arab states. Their situation had long been precarious. During the 1947 UN debates, Arab leaders threatened them. For example, Egypt’s delegate told the General Assembly: “The lives of one million Jews in Muslim countries would be jeopardized by partition.”
http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/refugees.html

In 1967, Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered the UN peacekeepers out of Sinai. Then, he created a naval blockade of Eilat, the only Israeli port on the Red Sea. In International Law, such a blockade is considered an act of war. At the same time, Arab leaders were repeatedly calling for “throwing the Jews into the sea”.
http://www.amitiesquebec-israel.org/texts/week.htm#6day

And Israel’s enemies have indeed referred to driving Jews into the sea.

That “occupation” criminal excuse

Is “Occupation” an Excuse for Terrorism?

No reasonable person can doubt that Palestinian extremists have been committing terrorist acts against the Israeli civilian population on a very wide scale. Call it what you will, under the banners of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades and others, these terrorists have intentionally targeted the most defenseless Israelis, including infants, children, and the elderly. They say they must do it to fight the “Israeli occupation.” They say they have no alternative.

The word “occupation” is indeed the most powerful weapon in the Palestinians’ propaganda arsenal. It is a serious charge. Therefore we must examine the questions: Just what is this “occupation,” and is it a legitimate excuse for violence against innocent people?

The claim that “occupation” excuses terrorism has made Palestinian extremists seem credible and has made gratuitous violence look legitimate. Aside from the very obvious moral weakness of any attempt to excuse intentional violence against civilians, the claim is false for at least two basic reasons:

1) Arabs committed terrorist atrocities against Jewish civilians years before the existence of what is now called the “occupation.”

2) The Palestinians refused even to negotiate a genuine peace offer that could soon have ended the so-called “occupation.” There was never any need to resort to violence.

These two facts are enough to invalidate any attempt to use “occupation” to justify terrorism. The “occupation” excuse for terrorism has persisted nevertheless, and so deserves a full examination.

The word “occupation” in this discussion refers to the presence of Israelis in the West Bank and in Gaza. What is its origin?

Before 1967, the West Bank was part of Jordan and Gaza was part of Egypt, and Israel had nothing to do with them. Then came the Six Day War.

In the spring of 1967 the Arab states were preparing for war. Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered the UN Emergency Force to leave the Sinai. Egyptian and Syrian troops massed along the Israeli border. Egypt closed the Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping and blockaded the port of Eilat. This itself was an act of war. Cutting off a major supply route placed Israel in a stranglehold.

The Arabs made their intentions clear. An official radio broadcast proclaimed:

As of today, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. We shall exercise patience no more. We shall not complain any more to the UN about Israel. The sole method we shall apply against Israel is total war, which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence.

Israel, knowing its existence was threatened, launched a preemptive strike against the Egyptian air force. The result was an Israeli victory in a surprisingly short period of time. Afterwards Israel found itself in control of pieces of Arab territory in the front-line states that had attacked it: Egypt, Syria, and Jordan.

Arab terrorism came before the (so called) “occupation”

…Biased Terminology
Use of biased terminology – constant use of terms of Arab propaganda such as “the occupation”, “the occupied territories”, “assassination”, and terms carrying an opinion such as “ferocious response”, “hardliners”, and misnomers such as “militants”, “gunmen”, and “activists” – one gets the sense the LA Times justifies every atrocity of the PLO because of “the occupation”. The term “occupation” as used by the Arabs is short for “occupied Arab lands” and anyone who uses it has already labeled themselves a supporter of Arab claims and is therefore biased. There is little recognition of, or respect for, the Jewish claim to what is, our 3,700 year old heritage.
http://www.geocities.com/golanfriends/Media.htm

When the Palestinians speak among themselves about occupation, they speak about Israel occupying Tel Aviv and Haifa, not Judea and Samaria
http://www.jcpa.org/brief/brief3-15.htm

Hezbollah likes to claim that they are ?resistance? to ?occupation.? This is disputed even by the UN, who certified that Israel was no longer operating on any part of Lebanese territory as determined by the UN demarcated ?blue line? setting Israel?s northern border. Furthermore, the UN called for Lebanon to disarm Hezbollah in UN Security Resolution 1559 ? a step the Lebanese government has refused to take.
http://www.sfvoiceforisrael.org/oldcal.php

When the Palestinians say “End the occupation”, What do they mean?…
Now, when you hear the Palestinians say “End of Occupation” do they mean “A Palestinian State alongside Israel”, or “In place of Israel?”

The “Palestinians” really mean the ‘END of ISRAEL!’

ISRAEL VS GOLIATH ARAB MUSLIMS’ FASCIST CAMPAIGN OF GENOCIDE – As Simple As That

1) Israel is ONLY about survival against the Goliath Arab Muslim that wants to eradicate it.

2) There are two causes of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The first is Arab racism, which rejects any presence that isn’t Arab in its neighborhood; the second is Islamic intolerance which leads to the same rejection. http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=7268

3) The big lie as IF the Arabs (that since the 1960s decided to call themselves as) “Palestinians” are “natives” in the holy land, the historic land of the Jews, nothing could be further from the truth, as the flow of Arab immigration in the late 1800s early 1900s was growing with the limitation on Jewish immigration.

[ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN’S HEZBULLAH]
Hassan Nasrallah: In His Own Words…
Nasrallah and Jews
Within a month of Nasrallah’s taking over as leader, Hezbollah (with the help of Iranian intelligence) bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injuring over 200. The next attack perpetrated by Hezbollah—again with Iranian help—was the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killing 86 and injuring over 200.

The widening arena of Hezbollah’s attacks stemmed from Nasrallah’s perception that Jews anywhere are legitimate targets. In fact, Nasarallah has said:

If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002)

Shiite scholar Amal Saad-Ghorayeb analyzed the anti-Jewish roots of Hezbollah ideology in her book Hezbollah: Politics & Religion. In it, she quotes Hassan Nasrallah describing his antipathy toward Jews…
Nasrallah also incoroporates anti-Semitic rhetoric in speeches. For example, he has characterized Jews as the “grandsons of apes and pigs” and “Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.” (MEMRI: Al- Manar, Feb. 3, 2006) …

Nasrallah’s anti-American sentiments are continuously on display. He fuels anti-American attitudes in the Middle East with charges such as his statement that Americans “have outdone Hitler.” (AP, Oct. 2, 2001) During one TV broadcast, Narallah accused the US of many “sponsored plans for extermination, eradication and genocide” against the people in the Middle East. (BBC Monitoring: Al-Manar, Feb. 8, 2002)

A 2002 appearance on Al-Manar illustrates his deep hostility toward the United States:


Let the entire world hear me. Our hostility to the Great Satan [America] is absolute …

I conclude my speech with the slogan that will continue to reverberate on all occasions so that nobody will think that we have weakened. Regardless of how the world has changed after 11 September, Death to America will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: Death to America. (BBC Monitoring: Al-Manar, Sep. 27, 2002)

Nasrallah boasts about Hezbollah’s designation as a terrorist group by America:


It is our pride that the Great Satan (U.S.) and the head of despotism, corruption and arrogance in modern times considers us as an enemy that should be listed in the terrorism list…I say to every member of Hezbollah (should) be happy and proud that your party has been placed on the list of terrorist organizations as the U.S. view it. (United Press International, Nov. 4, 2001)

At a rally in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, Nasrallah encouraged worldwide suicide bombing against the West:


Martyrdom operations – suicide bombings – should be exported outside Palestine. I encourage Palestinians to take suicide bombings worldwide. Don’t be shy about it. (Washington Times, Dec. 6, 2002)

Ahmadinejad must believe that he can get away with a plan for genocide because his remarks about wiping Israel off the map have been largely disregarded by the world community. He is trying to delegitimize the State of Israel by denying the Holocaust and has supported and financed Hizballah’s leader Sheikh Nasrallah. Nasrallah has been calling for more Jews to immigrate to Israel – only so that it will make it easier to destroy them all if they are gathered in one location

The Root of Palestinian misery
If Israel really were as sadistic as its critics claim, it wouldn’t have called off yesterday’s bombing run. Just the opposite: It would have jumped at the chance to kill so many Palestinians at one go. Just imagine if the shoe were on the other foot, and hundreds of Israeli “human shields” positioned themselves in an unguarded cafe in the West Bank. Palestinian suicide bombers would be stepping over each other in an effort to attack the target. “Human shields” work only when your enemy fights like a human.

THE BUTCHER YASSER ARAFAT’S LEGACY

November 12, 2007

THE BUTCHER YASSER ARAFAT’S LEGACY

Yasser Arafat!

  • The one who continued the tradition of hatred of his uncle the infamous Mufti.
  • The Champion of ‘Arab racism & Islamic Jihad’ the two real motives behind anti Israel bigotry.
  • The ‘founder’ of the ‘human bombs factories’.
  • The forthrunner in ‘Palestinian’ self made misery, self destruction [ecause ‘anti Israelism is more important than self advancement’?].
  • The arch butcher of Jews & Lebanese Christians masquerading as a “freedom fighter”.
  • The “father” of most evil “parenthood” in indoctrinating Arab children into the death cult of “palestine”.
  • The champion in ‘how to make sure Arab kids die and blame it on the Zionists’ [Human bombs, Human shields or the simple ‘Muhammad Al Dura’ model of killing own children and pin it on Israel].
  • The persecutor of non Muslims, as in Islamization and ISLAMIC APARTHEID.
  • As in the merciless thief stealing from his own poor people.
  • The icon of a foreign Arab immigrant [born in Egypt] settler going under a “native” – typical of most of this Arab Muslim group that calls itself in the last 30-40 years as “palestinians”.

Arafat’s Tomb and Legacy

By David Bedein
FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, November 09, 2007 This Sunday, November 11th, 2007, after three years of planning and construction in the courtyard of Yasser Arafat’s “mukataa” headquarters in Ramallah, a mausoleum in memory of the Godfather of Terror will be inaugurated with a full military ceremony. It will launch the memorial day to mark the three years since his death.Machmud Abbas, a.ka. Abu Mazen, Arafat’s protégé and successor, will cut the ribbon, followed by the entire Palestinian and Fatah leadership that will enter the mausoleum. Also invited to the ceremony are ambassadors, diplomatic representatives and heads of international organizations. After the visit to the tomb, a prayer session will be held at a new mosque built next to the mausoleum.Arafat’s tomb is located within a huge spacious oblong building in the form of the Qaba at Mecca, painted white. On the building are inscribed quotations from the Koran.Having covered Arafat for more than a decade, I am often asked what was it like to cover Arafat and to speak with him.Indeed, the news agency that I work with in Jerusalem had become known as the “Arafat tape” agency, because of our editing and distribution of Arafat’s numerous appearances on the official media of the PBC, the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation TV, which belied any true hint of peace. These videos were also shown in Congress.In November 1996, on the day that coincided with Thanksgiving eve in the US, this reporter covered a delegation of 10 Israeli residents from Judea and Samaria who met with Yasser Arafat at his domicile in Bethlehem.To summarize the purpose of the meeting in two words, one participant described it as “reality testing.” Arafat had maintained a consistent policy of saying one thing in English, advocating peace and co-existence, while conveying quite another message in Arabic, as he continued to incite the Palestinian Arab people to war with the Jewish state. Arafat had yet to deliver even one message that calls for peace with the state of Israel in the Arabic language.What the delegation wanted to know was with whom they were dealing: a neighbor of peace or an antagonist at war?This unofficial “settler delegation” asked Arafat very specific and pointed questions as to whether he would indeed embark on a policy of peace or war.The idea was to look to the future, not to the past. Would Arafat finally make a speech in Arabic in which he would call for peace with the state of Israel? Would the PBC “Voice of Palestine” Radio, which was under the direct control of Arafat, stop its invective against Israelis, especially against the Israeli residents of Judea and Samaria (The West Bank)? Would Arafat encourage teachers and other officials of the Palestine Authority to participate in programs that encourage tolerance and co-existence?Arafat was all smiles throughout our two-hour sessions delivering long-winded speeches in which he professed to be a man of tolerance and understanding, well deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize.I then asked Arafat a pointed question: Would he get on the airwaves of the Voice of Palestine and proclaim reconciliation with Israel in the Arabic language to his own people, and would Arafat denounce any and all murders of Jews on that same station, if future murders occur. Arafat nodded his head and said that he “speaks about peace all the time”, to which I responded that we have no such record. “You will see,” Arafat said and finished the meeting in a cordial manner.What the participants thought and felt after the meeting was that Arafat would deliver his answer through actions, not with words.Arafat’s “answer” was not long in coming. Exactly two weeks later, on the seventh night of Chanukah, a dimly lit drizzly evening near the Israeli community of Beit El, three Palestinians shot up the car of the Tzur family of Beit El, killing a mother and child in the car. The killers’ smoldering vehicle was found in one of the “safe havens” of the Palestinian Authority.

We called Arafat after the attack. So did all major media. He was nowhere to be found.

However, the next morning, Arafat’s PBC radio newsreel broadcast that an “incident occurred on the settler road” where “two criminal settlers were killed.”

The next day, our news agency dispatched a TV crew to Gaza to give Arafat the direct opportunity to say something about the attack. We had the opportunity to see Arafat once more.

Smiling widely again, Arafat greeted reporters and waved away the question about the murders in Beit El. A few hours later, Arafat then issued a public order that if the killers at Bait El are caught, they would not be turned over.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority confirmed that 10 recent killers of Israeli civilians had been hired as officers in the Palestinian Liberation Army police force.

Arafat had delivered his answer loud and clear to the delegation that came to see him.

In the topsy-turvy Orwellian world in which we live, Yasser Arafat, the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, defined under Israeli law as a terrorist organization, was a Nobel Peace Laureate, while Israeli residents of Judea, Samaria and Katif (in Gaza) are often thought of portrayed as warmongers.

And when Arafat made his first visit to the UN in 1974, the PLO leader grasped an olive branch in one hand and a pistol in the other.

Epilogue One: Two years later, on December 1st, 1998, Arafat appeared at a US State Department briefing that I covered. US Secretary of State Madelyn Albright gave me the opportunity to ask a question of Arafat. I asked Arafat if he would stand by the commitment to preach reconciliation in the Arabic language that he had given two years before, and I presented Arafat with the records of his speeches from the previous few weeks, in which, among other things, Arafat had called the Jews “the Sons of Satan.”

Arafat’s response was to foam from the mouth and pound on the State Department platform and scream that “I love the Jews, I love the Jews!

Epilogue Two: As the United Jewish Communities meets in its annual General Assembly of Jewish Federations this Sunday in Nashville, Tennessee on the day that marks three years since Yasser Arafat’s death, it should be recalled that in October 1999, the same United Jewish Communities (UJC), almost awarded Arafat the Isaiah Peace Prize.

After I was provided with written documentation of the prize, and after I published in the Jewish Advocate in Boston and the Forward in New York, the UJC peace prize to Arafat was cancelled, with no explanation as to why such an award was offered by a Jewish group to Arafat and as to why it was cancelled. What the UJC did, however, was to hire Kroll Associates, a private investigation firm, to determine how the news of this prize was leaked to this reporter. They never found out.

Learn the full story about the UJC/Isaiah Award for Peace that was to go to Arafat to appreciate where we are today.

The following is from CAMERA written in 2004:

November 13, 2004

Members of the media are focusing much attention on Yasir Arafat’s legacy. Many of the historical briefs and timelines being published whitewash his decades-long involvement in terrorism. While they note that Arafat led Fatah and the PLO, the terrorist acts committed by these groups are often ignored.

For example, a Nov. 4 AP timeline, reproduced in the publications and Web sites of many different media outlets, lists only one failed act of sabotage in 1965, 3 suicide bombings in December of 2001 and one in 2002.

In fact, groups under Arafat’s direct or indirect command – including Fatah, Black September, Tanzim and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade – were responsible for hundreds of bombings, hijackings, assassinations and other attacks, including the 1972 murder of 11 of Israel’s Olympic athletes in Munich, the 1973 murder of the American ambassador to Sudan, Cleo Noel, and the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruiseship (resulting in the murder of wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer).

The AP timeline instead highlights Israel’s anti-PLO actions without providing the reason – decades of terrorist attacks against innocent civilians. Not only is the PLO’s history of international hijackings, kidnappings and child murders ignored, the terrorist organization and Arafat’s leadership of it are actually praised:

Feb. 4, 1969: Arafat takes over PLO chairmanship, transforms it into a dynamic force that makes Palestinian cause known worldwide.

A Knight-Ridder/Tribune timeline of Arafat’s life that appeared in Newsday only mentions terror once, in 2001: “Blamed for not controlling terrorist attacks on Israel by Hamas, other radicals.” Typical of many of the flawed timelines, it implies only that Arafat failed to control terror, not that he was actively involved in funding and supporting it.

In order to report on Arafat’s history objectively, one must include his decades-long involvement in terror, his goal of destroying Israel, and his siphoning of hundreds of millions of dollars from money donated to help the Palestinian people that went instead into his own private accounts.

Yasir Arafat is known to many as the “father of modern terrorism.” Below is a timeline of some of the key events of his life and terrorist acts with which he was associated. (prepared by www.camera.org)

Key Events in Yasir Arafat’s Terrorist Career

September 1993: Arafat shakes hands with Israeli Prime Minister Rabin, inaugurating the Oslo Accords. Arafat pledges to stop incitement and terror, and to foster co-existence with Israel, but fails to comply. Throughout the years of negotiations, aside from passing, token efforts, Arafat does nothing to stop Hamas, PFLP, and Islamic Jihad from carrying out thousands of terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians. With Arafat’s encouragement and financial support, groups directly under Arafat’s command, such as the Tanzim and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, also carry out terror attacks.

Oct. 21, 1996: Speaking at a rally near Bethlehem, Arafat said “We know only one word – jihad. jihad, jihad, jihad. Whoever does not like it can drink from the Dead Sea or from the Sea of Gaza.” (Yediot Ahronot, October 23, 1996)

April 16, 1998: In a statement published in the official Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda, Arafat is quoted: “O my dear ones on the occupied lands, relatives and friends throughout Palestine and the diaspora, my colleagues in struggle and in arms, my colleagues in struggle and in jihad…Intensify the revolution and the blessed intifada…We must burn the ground under the feet of the invaders.”

Amin Al Husseini – The Grand Mufti and father of today’s jihad
http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/AminAlHusseini.htm

In November 1941, the Mufti met with Hitler, who told him the Jews were his foremost enemy. The Nazi dictator rebuffed the Mufti’s requests for a declaration in support of the Arabs, however, telling him the time was not right. The Mufti offered Hitler his “thanks for the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches….The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely….the Jews….” Hitler replied.

HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS PRIOR TO CONFLICT

The vast majority of travelogues and historical accounts of the Middle east describe this area as barren- that does not mean UN -populated- it does mean UNDER populated. Alexander Keith, recalling Volney’s 1785 description (quoted above) fifty years later, commented: “In his day [Volney’s] the land had not fully reached its last degree of desolation and depopulation.” (The Land of Israel).

Other travelers and pilgrims recorded similar reports of the dreary state of the Land around the middle of the nineteenth century. Here are just a few examples:

Alphonse de Lamartine, in 1835: “…a complete eternal silence reigns in the town, on the highways, in the country … the tomb of a whole people” (Recollections of the East, Vol. I, p. 308).

A contemporary German encyclopedia (Brockhaus, “Allegmeine deutsche Real- Encyklopaidie”, Vol. VIII, p. 206, Leipzig, 1827) calls Palestine “desolate and roamed through by Arab robber-bands.”

In 1849, the American W. F. Lynch described the desertion of Palestinian villages “caused by the frequent forays of the wandering Bedouin” (Narrative of the United States Expedition to the River Jordan and the Dead Sea, p. 489).

And again H. B. Tristram, in 1865: “… both in the north and south (of the Sharon plain), land is going out of cultivvation, and whole villages ar rapidly disappearing from the face of the earth. Since the year 1838, no less than 20 villages have been thus erased from the map (by the Bedouin) and the stationary population extirpated” (p. 490).

Mark Twain, ‘Innocents Abroad’ 1867:

“”Desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given over wholly to weeds – a silent mournful expanse … We reached Tabor safely … We never saw a human being on the whole route” (p. 451, 480); “There is not a solitary village throughout its (the Jezreel Valley’s) whole extent – not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles, hereabouts, and not see ten human beings” (p. 448); “Of all the lands there are for dismal scenery, I think Palestine must be the prince. The hills are barren … the valleys are unsightly deserts… It is a hopeless, dreary, heartbroken land… Palestine is desolate and unlovely… Palestine is no more of this workday world. It is sacred to poetry and tradition – it is dreamland” (pp. 564, 567).

Referring to the same era, the Christian historian James Parkes writes in Whose Land?: “Peasant and Bedouin alike have contributed to the ruin of the countryside on which both depend for a livelihood… In spite of the immense fertility of the soil, it is probable that in the first half of the nineteenth century the population sank to the lowest level it had ever known in historic times.”

In 1738, the land was described by the English archeologist Thomas Shaw as “lacking in people to till its fertile soil” (Travels and Observations Relating to Several Parts of Barbary and the Levant). The French historian Conte Constantine Francois Volney writes:

“The peasants are incessantly making inroads on each other’s lands, destroying their corn, durra, sesame and olive-trees, and carrying off their sheep, goats and camels. The Turks, who are everywhere negligent in repressing similar disorders, are attentive to them here, since their authority is very precarious. The Bedouin, whose camps occupy the level country, are continually at open hostility Alexander Keith, recalling Volney’s 1785 description (quoted above) fifty years later, commented: “In his day [Volney’s] tthe land had not fully reache its last degree of desolation and depopulation.” (The Land of Israel).

Other travelers and pilgrims recorded similar reports of the dreary state of the Land around the middle of the nineteenth century. Here are just a few examples:
