Again, religious persecution in Iran
February 20, 2009
Ethel C. Fenig
As Thomas Lifson noted yesterday Iranian authorities destroyed a Sufi holy site, continuing their practice of pressuring and discriminating against religions that do not strictly follow the Shi’ite form of Islam. But the Sufis are not the only religious minority suffering discrimination in Iran.

The 2500 year old Jewish community, which numbered over 80,000 thirty years ago at the time of the Khoemeni Revolution which overthrew the Shah, has dwindled to about 20,000. Those remaining Jews live restricted personal and religious lives, always under suspicion of being traitors for pro “Zionist” activities.
Despite the official distinction between “Jews,” “Zionists,” and “Israel,” the most common accusation the Jews encounter is that of maintaining contacts with Zionists. The Jewish community does enjoy a measure of religious freedom but is faced with constant suspicion of cooperating with the Zionist state and with “imperialistic America” — both such activities are punishable by death. Jews who apply for a passport to travel abroad must do so in a special bureau and are immediately put under surveillance. The government does not generally allow all members of a family to travel abroad at the same time to prevent Jewish emigration. Again, the Jews live under the status of dhimmi, with the restrictions im posed on religious minorities. Jewish leaders fear government reprisals if they draw attention to official mistreatment of their community.

Iran’s official government-controlled media often issues anti-Semitic propaganda. A prime example is the government’s publishing of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious Czarist forgery, in 1994 and 1999.2 Jews also suffer varying degrees of officially sanctioned discrimination, particularly in the areas of employment, education, and public accommodations.
The Islamization of the country has brought about strict control over Jewish educational institutions. Before the revolution, there were some 20 Jewish schools functioning throughout the country. In recent years, most of these have been closed down. In the remaining schools, Jewish principals have been replaced by Muslims. In Teheran there are still three schools in which Jewish pupils constitute a majority. The curriculum is Islamic, and Persian is forbidden as the language of instruction for Jewish studies. Special Hebrew lessons are conducted on Fridays by the Orthodox Otzar ha-Torah organization, which is responsible for Jewish religious education. Saturday is no longer officially recognized as the Jewish sabbath, and Jewish pupils are compelled to attend school on that day. There are three synagogues in Teheran, but since 1994, there has been no rabbi in Iran, and the bet din does not function.
At least 13 Jews have been executed in Iran since the Islamic revolution 30 years ago, most of them for either religious reasons or their connection to Israel. For example, in May 1998, Jewish businessman Ruhollah Kakhodah-Zadeh was hanged in prison without a public charge or legal proceeding, apparently for assisting Jews to emigrate.
Other religious groups are persecuted too. This week Iran admitted that seven Bahai leaders arrested and detained more than eight months ago would be charged with spying for Israel.
The Bahai faith, which began in the 19th century in what is now Iran, claims their founder, Baha’a’llah, is the last Moslem prophet, not Mohammed. Bahai’s international headquarters are located in Haifa, Israel where Bahais, along with Moslems and Christians of various backgrounds, plus other religions in addition to Jews can practice freely.
This is not true in Iran.
Bahais claim 300,000 followers in Iran, but there are no independent statistics on the denomination’s size in the country. The Islamic republic allows Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians, who are regarded as members of monotheistic religions, to hold religious gatherings. Bahais are forbidden to hold such meetings, and those who make their faith public are banned from studying at universities serving in the army and working in government offices.
The Iranian prosecutors claim
“All evidence points to the fact that the Bahai organization is in direct contact with the foreign enemies of Iran,” Dorri-Najafabadi wrote in the letter, (snip) “The ghastly Bahai organization is illegal on all levels, their dependence on Israel has been documented, their antagonism with Islam and the Islamic System is obvious, their danger for national security is proven and any replacement organization must also be dealt with according to the law,”
This charge is part of the latest prosecution against Iranian Bahais.
The Bahai International Community, which represents members of the faith worldwide, says hundreds of followers have been jailed and some executed in the years since Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution.

Iran Working Group examines the situation of ethnic and religious minorities
2008-03-17
LEADERSHIP COUNCIL FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, March 13 representatives of Iran’s ethnic and religious groups testified at a meeting of the Iran Working Group, a Congressional body co-chaired by Congressman Mark Kirk and Congressman Robert Andrews. The Leadership Council for Human Rights assisted in organizing the hearing, which included testimony from Fakhteh Zamani, Director of the Association for the Defense of Azerbaijani Political Prisoners; Sharif Behruz, U.S. Representative of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan; Kit Bigelow, Director of External Affairs for the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the U.S.; Dr. Ali Al-Taie, Professor at Shaw University and author of The Arabs of Khuzestan and Iran; Dr. M. Hosseinbor, Iranian Baluchi and author of Iran and Its Nationalities: The Case of Baloch Nationalism; and Nina Shea, vice chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
LCHR President Kathryn Cameron Porter served as moderator. Porter stressed the importance of seeking solidarity among Iran’s diverse marginalized groups in order to promote human rights for all persecuted peoples.
Rep. Kirk, who convened the working group meeting, said the treatment of Iran’s minorities was a bi-partisan issue of concern. He spoke about the importance of Iran in the future of the United States’ foreign policy, and warned about the danger of failing to understand the country’s complexities and making cultural mistakes.
Nina Shea gave a comprehensive summary of the International Religious Freedom Report on Iran, describing “systematic, ongoing persecution based primarily or entirely upon religion.” Iran’s constitution recognizes Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians, as well as non-Shi’a Muslims, as members of official minority religions, but there are severe limitations upon the rights of these groups. According to the International Religious Freedom Report, religious minorities “face substantial societal discrimination, and government actions continued to support elements of society who create a threatening atmosphere.”
Groups that are not recognized face even greater problems, as illustrated by the testimony of Kit Bigelow. More than 200 Baha’is have been killed in Iran since 1978 and countless more have been imprisoned, attacked and harassed, she said. The elimination of the Baha’is is explicit government policy, meaning that they face arbitrary arrest, imprisonment, and defamation from the government sponsored media on a daily basis.
Since Ahmadinejad came to power there has been a new wave of discrimination against Baha’is, Bigelow said. A new draft penal code is currently being considered which specifically requires the death penalty as a punishment for apostasy, and it is thought that this is a direct threat against the Baha’i community which is regularly condemned for apostasy by the authorities.
Discrimination goes beyond religion. Iran is home to many distinct ethnic groups with their own identities and languages. Persians, the dominant ethnic group in Iran, in fact constitute just 45 percent of the population, said Dr. Hosseinbor. The remaining 55 percent of the population, made up of Kurds, Baluchis, Arabs, Azeris, Turkmen and Turks, tend to be spread around the outside of the state, often splitting their population between two or three countries.
Sharif Behruz said that the poorest areas of Iran are those populated by ethnic minorities. Lack of investment has resulted in a comparatively low quality of life.
One of the biggest grievances of Iran’s ethnic minorities, expressed by all the representatives of minority groups present at the meeting, is the restriction on cultural rights, particularly the use of minority languages. Kurds, Azeris, Baluchis and other minorities are not permitted to use their mother tongue in schools, and there are significant barriers to the publishing of books. This is just one part of a larger policy of “forced assimilation” which, according to Fakhteh Zamani, has been put in place by the rulers of Iran since the 1920s.
The state-sponsored media also runs defamation campaigns, she said, including openly insulting Azeris, depicting them as intellectually challenged characters, and generally perpetuating the misconception that they are “backward”- a stereotype held by many due to the fact that they are not fluent in Farsi, the official national language.
Under the Islamic Republic, said Sharif Behruz, people are systematically repressed, and minorities are viewed as second class citizens: “unlawful detentions, torture, harassment, executions and disappearances have become a daily routine in the Kurdish areas,” he said.
Behruz said that in order to move forward and develop Iran must become “democratic and decentralized.” This would “recover its devastated economy, create political stability inside and assist in bringing about stability, security in the region, and most importantly, as an effective member of the international community can strengthen world peace.”
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee emphasized the importance of continuing to speak up for these minority groups. “Every government can be judged by its treatment of ethnic and religious minorities,” she said, “and Iran would get a failing grade.”

Many Azeris see Iranian hand behind wave of unrest
Iran is working hard to become the leader of the global jihad. By Ilan Greenberg in the International Herald Tribune, with thanks to Twostellas:
BAKU, Azerbaijan: An article denigrating Islam published early last month in an obscure newspaper here in the capital has led to emotional demonstrations across Azerbaijan and in Iran. A prominent Iranian cleric demanded the death of the two writers of the article, who have been imprisoned in Azerbaijan.
The article blamed Islam for Azerbaijan’s meager development and likened the Prophet Muhammad to a used handkerchief. The ensuing furor echoes the case of the Danish cartoons published in September 2005 that mocked Islam and that, months later, generated protests throughout the Muslim world.
Here, the thunderous rhetoric from village imams and other religious conservatives has sent tremors through the Azeri government and the secular elite of the nation.
“I am for freedom of speech but not the freedom to insult,” said Haji Ilgar, an imam at the Jama Old City Mosque in Baku who is often critical of the government of the secular president, Ilham Aliyev. “The only solution is to take this to the courts.”
Many Azeris see the roots of the trouble in what they consider Iran’s shadowy influence here. The two countries have had an often prickly relationship since Azerbaijan’s independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Iran is the regional power, and Azerbaijan is an up- and-coming oil state, tucked between Iran and Russia on the Caspian Sea.
Both Iran and Azerbaijan are Shiite, but Azeris fear that Iran wants to destabilize the country by spreading its brand of militant Islam across the border. Iran is struggling to deal with a large minority — upwards of a third — of Iran’s 66 million people who are ethnic Azeri, a beleaguered minority that frequently agitates for more rights and cultural autonomy. Iran does not want them to get any ideas from a secular and prospering Azerbaijan, in this view.

BALUCHIS
Pakistan/Iran: The Baluchi Minority’s ‘Forgotten Conflict’
October 25, 2007
By Abubakar Siddique
October 25, 2007 (RFE/RL) — The Baluchi minority in southwestern Pakistan and southeastern Iran is increasingly marginalized, discriminated against by the state, and suffers from limited access to the benefits of citizenship, according to political observers and human rights groups.
Although the 6 million-8 million ethnic Baluchis in both countries live in a strategic location atop untapped hydrocarbon and mineral deposits and possible trade routes, it looks unlikely that their grim conditions will improve soon.
A report released on October 22 by the International Crisis Group argues that only free and fair elections are likely to encourage Baluchi participation in Pakistani politics. The Brussels-based think tank predicts that in the absence of political reconciliation, violence will continue unabated between Pakistan’s military and Baluchi nationalist militants demanding political and economic autonomy.
“The Baluch people think their resources are being monopolized by the government, that their land and their resources are not their own, and that there is no freedom to express their opinions.” — I.A. Rehman, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan
Baluchi leaders claim to be fighting for autonomy and control over their people’s abundant natural resources, but Islamabad regards them as revolutionaries bankrolled by regional archrival India. Years of armed insurrection have killed hundreds of Baluchi militants, Pakistani troops, and civilians.
I.A. Rehman, the director of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, an independent group that monitors human rights abuses, says the fighting has displaced thousands of Baluchis in the insurgency-plagued districts of Dera Bugti and Kohlu. Rehman told RFE/RL’s Radio Free Afghanistan that the government’s strong-arm tactics to suppress the insurgency have created a troubling human rights situation.
“There is the question of the suppression of all dissent. The cases of the disappeared people are only the tip of the problem,” Rehman said. “The real issue in Baluchistan is that the Baluch people think their resources are being monopolized by the government, that their land and their resources are not their own, and that there is no freedom to express their opinions.”
Displaced Or Missing
The International Crisis Group calls the Baluchi plight a “forgotten conflict.” It maintains that the fighting has so far displaced 84,000 people, while thousands of Baluchi nationalist activists languish in jails and hundreds remain missing.
The Pakistani government meanwhile claims to be pouring billions of dollars into major infrastructure-development projects, including a new port on the Arabian sea coast at Gwadar, along with the construction of major roads, rail networks, dams, and new cantonments. Other ambitious projects are aimed at extracting gold, copper, oil, gas, and minerals in Baluchistan Province, which accounts for nearly half of Pakistan’s territory and is home to some 8 million people, about half of them ethnic Pashtuns.
But many Baluchis oppose such projects and regard them as unfair efforts to exploit their land. Mariana Baabar, an Islamabad-based journalist and political commentator, says the Baluchis are among the most impoverished groups in the country, and require assistance to meet basic needs as well as longer-term development efforts.
“They do not have clean drinking water. They are not being provided with [basic] health care or education. And they are even regarded as not being part of Pakistan,” Baabar said. The Pakistani government “is trying to build a port in Gawadar, but, again, non-Baluchis from Punjab and other regions are being taken there [to settle]. So that is why the people of Baluchistan are unhappy.”
Poverty, Discrimination
Across the border in neighboring Iran, Baluchis are enduring similar woes. There some 2 million Baluchis concentrated in Iran’s southeastern Sistan-Baluchistan Province, representing about 2 percent of the country’s total population.
Drewery Dyke, a Middle East researcher for human rights watchdog Amnesty International in London, told Radio Free Afghanistan that Iran’s Baluchi population is subject to economic and cultural discrimination. Sistan-Baluchistan is “certainly one of the poorest and most deprived provinces in the country. And it has suffered droughts and extreme weather conditions. And certainly — with respect to the situation of women and schooling for girls — there are shortcomings that the state really needs to address,” Dyke said.
In a September report that Dyke helped research, Amnesty International documented rights abuses by Iranian authorities and the armed Baluchi and hard-line Sunni group Jondallah (which has reportedly been renamed the Iranian Peoples’ Resistance Movement). Since 2005, Jondallah appears to have carried out lethal attacks on Iranian security forces, and taken and executed hostages. Iranian authorities have blamed Jondollah for other attacks that resulted in civilian casualties, but the group has denied responsibility.
Amnesty International has criticized the arrest of suspected Baluchi militants who might have been subjected to torture to produce forced confessions. The group has expressed concern over special judicial procedures put in place by Iranian authorities, and a steep rise in the number of Baluchis who have been targeted.
Dyke said the Iranian authorities “have established a special court…almost like a security court to deal with what is obviously a very severe situation — in some respects, an insurgency in the country. It appears to [have led] to a decline, an erosion of the safeguards, [of] the fair-trial standards and a massive rise in the implementation of the death penalty against the Baluchis.”
The plights of their respective Baluchi minorities are unlikely to improve in the short term. In the best-case scenario, human rights advocates in Pakistan maintain that the coming national elections in Pakistan — if they are sufficiently transparent — might boost Baluchi participation in mainstream politics. That, they say, could provide incentives that help defuse militancy…

Appeal

Stop the execution of 5 Baloch innocent young men
Reza Hossein Borr
London- 25.11.08– After the demolition of Azim Abad mosque in Balochistan on 27 August 2008, several students and teachers were arrested for expressing their discontent about the demolition of the mosque. Five of them are now on trial on fabricated charges of having links with the People’s Resistance Movement of Iran, Jondollah. Everybody in Baluchistan knows quite well that these are simple teachers and students that have no any kind of links with any armed group or political organizations.
The Islamic Republic of Iran claimed that their trial has been open to the public and the parents of the victims were also present. That regime portrays this trial as if the innocent teachers and students were guilty of some criminal activities in which innocent people have died. This is a new farce of a new kind. The government destroyed the mosque and arrested several teachers and students. They are the victims. There is no any other victim. What a regime! What an Islamic Republic? What an Islamic Republic of Iran? What an Islam in which all sins are allowed! The regime demolishes a mosque, arrests many people for protesting against it and then they stage manage a dramatic trial and claim that there were some people who were victimized by those teachers and students that were arrested.

* and not to forget the problems in Sudan where civilians are being massacred in Darfur by the government and the military.

[…]
Islam is at the center of all social order and of the moral and
intellectual values of Middle Eastern Muslims. In fact, it is the
official religion in most Arab and Islamic countries. Considering
Arabism and Islam as synonyms embodies discrimination against various
ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East
. […]

Conclusion

Most
regimes in Middle East are authoritarian, if not dictatorships, ruling
for decades by fear or reward. The elites who rule in Middle East
countries used religious faith with ideology of nationalism for
blinding people and controlling them … conflicts in the Middle East
all look different, but the real cause root is related to human rights
abuses.

Clarity on Islamic Republic of Iran’s nukes danger to the world

No one denies, the Islamic militant mullahs have nukes capable of being used for annihliation in Europe and in the middle east.

No one denies the Iranian Islamic oppressive regime has threatened genocide (at least) on US, UK (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/04/10/wiran10.xml) , Israel (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6181029.stm) .

The M.E. “conflict” is Arab Muslim bigotry

January 1, 2008

‘CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST’ ARABS VS ISRAEL ANOTHER ARAB MUSLIM INTOLERANCE CASUALTY:Being a minority in a majority hostile middle east – [“Goliath”] Arab racism & Islamic bigotry against [“David”] Israel 

 
 
Arabs VS Israel, The blatant intolerance that created the ‘conflict’, persecutes little Israel, isolates it, demonetizes it, and threatens it constantly since its re-establishment.
 
 
What does the cruel vicious racist giant want from the innocent little one?
 
Let’s face it, had Israel be just another Arab, Muslim country, nothing of – what’s now known as – an ‘Arab Israeli conflict’ would have existed at all.
 
The fate of a minority in a double sense, it is neither an Arab state, but a full democracy with Arabs as a major equal minority, nor is it a Muslim state, its system is like any western free secular society.

 

[though in reality, Arabs, Muslims are often treated as first class citizens over Jews in Israel’s democracy, some examples are: [1] access to holy sites (like: The Temple Mount is always closed to non-Muslims on Fridays and during the entire… (Ramadan), Temple Mount shut to non-Muslims on election eve, or the case in 2005), [2] cases of land disputes, Israeli courts would order only the Jews to be moved out already before any decision is made, [3] We see that the Israelis routinely decide in favor of the Palestinians against their own government, and [4] giving favor in not-handling any illegal Arab settlements VS swift action on Jewish (so called) “illegal” ones, Gov’t Allows Arabs To Squat on Jewish Farmland, Arab “Land Grab” in Israel gets shielded by Israel’s Supreme Court, it is favoring Arabs over Jews in its self-image, [5] Israel’s courts go as far as favoring some one or two Arabs’ convenience over Israelis’ security as in altering the fence to accommodate some Arabs Fence Rulings: Democracy in Action Israel’s Supreme Court sided with the Palestinians in a precedent-setting decision,ordering the government to reroute part of its West Bank …, etc.].

 

 
 
“LAND”
 
Had it been really [mainly] about [having more, or having less] “land” (or/and about a flag), the Arabs would have no problem complying with the UN’s partition plan/offer in 1948.
 
But No! The Arab racists and Islamic bigots wouldn’t have it as long as there’s also a Jewish state.
 
What “territories” did the Arabs “fight” about in the Arab massacres since the 1920’s on the Jews?
 
Would it be just about a strip of land, you would have expected that with [always the giver:] Israel’s gigantic gesture of its land Gaza give-away, a change [somewhat] of behavior will occur among Arab “Palestinians”, instead of genocidal rise of Hamas.

 
Can anyone point for me the exact “territory”, the callers for Genocide: Islamic Republic of Iran’s “case” in “dispute” is all about?
 
A typical Islamic hypocrisy, its name is Ahmadinejad, with all his Islamic intolerant regime’s anti-Arab racism, persecuting all his minorities especially his Arab ( The Plight of the Ahwazi Arab) population, can be the last (in the Middle east) to claim he just aches for Arab “Palestinians”.
 
Islamic flaming bigotry will stop at nothing: Iran Holocaust Denial–Rewriting history to suit their political ends.

 

 

 
 
 
THE SAME OLD…
 
That culture of racism that has pushed, intimidated the British appeasers to restrict Jewish immigration while allowing the massive Arab immigration (reminder: Arab immigrants settlers, can never turn into “natives”, no matter how many lies their grandchildren try to tell you) into Jews’ [ & never ever Arab] historic land.
 
Intolerant Arabia fact# 1: What kind of an excuse of re-appearing the State of Israel was there for one of the major crimes post WWII, to expel the 850.000 Jews  from Arab Muslim countries in 1948 & confiscate their property?
 
 
DIVIDED ARABS: ‘UNITED WE STAND IN EVIL RACISM!’
 
Intolerant Arabia fact# 2: What united the (always divided) Arabs to attack the Jews in 1948, 1967, 1973?

(Iraqi example of Arab on Arab in the most beastly way type of slaughter, is rooted in old hatred among Arabs, Muslims, sectarian and otherwise, as are other Arab vs Arab massacres: Algerian, “Palestinian” and so on, in any case, even when in peace, still there is never any harmony among Arab leaders, never any unity in the Arab world on anything besides shear blind anti-Israelism).

 
Intolerant Arabia fact# 3: What kind of a world is it that they will cheer to “Palestinian” Intifadas & Hezbollah (- 2006) [using abusing –] playing kids & women’s lives as a ping pong (as always, not caring about Arabs’ lives but turning only) against Israel?
 
Intolerant Arabia fact# 4: “Moderate” Arab Muslim Jordan leads the world in hatred of Jews.

 
If not for the unbelievable consistency of Arab racism, (which started to manifest itself in the 1800’s, up-scaled since 1929 [*, *, *, *, *] there wouldn’t have been a conflict nor the prolonged suffering of both sides, well, it’s all too bad that the [“Palestinian”] Arabs suffer from their own racism.

from the ‘Hebron Massacre’ 1929
 
NEVER PRO ARAB – “PALESTINIANS” BUT ALWAYS ‘ANTI – ISRAEL’
 
Had it been about Arab world being “preoccupied” with the Arab “Palestinians”, the Arabs wouldn’t have hated, oppressed, persecuted, massacred them (in Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, S. Arabia, Iraq, etc.).
 
Had the Arab world been real brothers to the Arabs that call themselves (since the 1960’s) “Palestinians”, they wouldn’t have prevented any chance by humane heroic Israel to improve their status, but No! The Arab anti-Israel racists always preferred using them and their misery against the “Zionist enemy”, it also served/serves as a devious diversion for their population being constant victims of the horror of all Arab oppressive dictatorships,  “palestinians”…as a foil to keep their own oppressed population focused on Israel instead of deplorable human rights in their own countries.
 
What do you make of such facts like ‘In 1954, the king of Saudi Arabia stated that the Arabs should be willing to sacrifice what amounted to 20% of their population to destroy Israel’? Because it was never about “Pro-Palestinian-Arabs” but all about anti Israel.
 
 
Just a side note, Can anyone answer me this, How come it was rather the Arab filthy oil rich countries that were left so far behind at Europe’s pledge drive of billions of dollars to the “Palestinians” in 2007? 
 
 
A PROFILE OF AN ARAB RACIST: SADDAM HUSSEIN
 
Take the most notorious butcher of our time, that classic brutal Arab racist Saddam Hussein of course, master of sectarian persecution, who defined his Arabism by the extent of his brutality against non Arab Kurds, non Arab Persians, it was only appropriate for the racist’s last words to be: “Palestine is (all) Arab!” [‘Palestine’s patron mourned], meaning: Only Arabs, ‘No Jews’!
 
 


a million people lost their lives in Saddam’s initiated Iraq-Iran war

 
 
A GLIMPSE INTO THE TOTALITARIAN EVIL EMPIRE OF SAUDI ARABIA – EXAMPLE OF ARAB RACISM

The mistreatment of non-Arab workers, the sex slavery upon Asian women and other oppression, are well known facts.
Not to mention the repression of any non Muslim activity/voice.

Saddam�s Racism, [from the devil’s mouth:] “Three whom God should not have created: Persians, Jews, and flies”

 

 

 

‘Sex slave’ trial starts in US Exploitation and Abuse of Migrant Workers in Saudi Arabia … Interestingly, Nazar, like many of these poor Asian slaves

Filipino ‘Sex Slaves’ Rescued In Malaysia Sue Recruiters For Human . …. Europe & the middle east especially Pinoys in Saudi Arabia.

SAUDI ARABIA AND SLAVERY

How my eyes were opened to the barbarity of Islam…Look at Saudi Arabia, a strict Islamic state… trade and trafficking of women as sex slaves

How a British jihadi saw the light, My first clash with Saudi culture came when, being driven around in a bulletproof jeep, I saw African women in black abayas tending to the rubbish bins outside restaurants, residences and other busy places. “Why are there so many black cleaners on the streets?” I asked the driver. The driver laughed. “They’re not cleaners. They are scavengers; women who collect cardboard from all across Jeddah and then sell it. They also collect bottles, drink cans, bags.”
Racism was an integral part of Saudi society. My students often used the word “nigger” to describe black people. Even dark-skinned Arabs were considered inferior to their lighter-skinned cousins. I was living in the world’s most avowedly Muslim country, yet I found it anything but. I was appalled by the imposition of Wahhabism in the public realm, something I had implicitly sought as an Islamist.

Slaves in Saudi Arabia, A report from a Muslim: Anyone who has visited Saudi Arabia knows the racism with which ordinary Saudis treats the brown and black-skinned masses that come for Hajj. Like hundreds of Bangladeshis every year, my parents endured these indignities during their recent pilgrimage. When he returned from Mecca, my father told me, “To them, we will always be miskeen (beggar). Doesn’t matter what we do, or where we come from. They see our skin and don’t need to see more. ” If this is how pilgrims are treated, imagine how much worse is the plight of the “Guest Worker.” Yet, we Muslims remain silent on these abuses — after all the Saudis are the keepers of Islam’s holiest site, so they cannot possibly be racist!

Arab racism is such that most Pakistanis would prefer to work in Britain than in Saudi Arabia.

 

SOME ARAB RACISM HIGLIGHTS IN GENERAL

Then there’s Kuwait… children to take illegal drugs and then used these children as sex slaves

More discriminative and racist behavior against Indians (by Kuwaiti police)

In spite of that he does not think of any political, diplomatic, moral and even tribal considerations, as a new husband of a political Kurdish woman, to restraint his essentially racist views, He frankly expresses his racist hatred of Kurds, his true Arab fascist a nature which does not recognize any form of democracy or freedom of expression, nor the rights of people to self determination and democratic determination of their future.

A PART OF GLOBAL ISLAMO ARAB RACISM
 
What’s the difference between “merciful” Arabs, Muslims attacking [spitting, beating, etc.] Jews in Paris (murder of Ilan Halimi among so many), London, Brussels, or Muslims beheading Jews (Daniel Pearl) in Pakistan, Iraq (Nick Berg), Islamic Iran’s killing of Jews in Argentina, and Arabs attacking Israelis?
 
 
AN OASIS OF TOLERANCE & DEMOCRACY IN A DESERT OF DISCRIMNITORY & TOTALITARIAN ARABIA
 
Why can’t the Arab Muslim majority [instead of fascistic wars and racist boycotts for 60 years 1948-2008] simply accept the Israeli minority in its midst just as the Israeli open free democracy accepts its 20% Arab minority? [giving them equal freedom and full equal rights Arab representation in the government, etc., The productivity and tolerance of the Jews in the state they created have given birth to an Arab citizenry inside Israel of more than one million people, even though it is the only refuge for persecuted Jews while Arabs have so much of vast land].
Whereas Israel is at the merciless hands of Arab Muslim undemocratic, saturated with Arab Racism, Islamic Fascism, Islamic intolerance, Islamic bigotry toward non-Muslims, facts, and ‘human rights’ terrible abuser middle east, Israel is just another minority such as Christians, or any “infidel” in their own radical regimes, Infidels can be permitted to exist only as dhimmis, and in such a non-Muslim state as Israel they would no longer be dhimmis, (the continuation of dhimmitude, The fates of non-Muslims in Islamic society, “Jihad Conquests and the Imposition of Dhimmitude — A Survey, in The legacy of jihad: Islamic holy war and the fate of non-Muslims. ) but in fact its doomed only far worse, it can’t even be given a ‘right to exist’.

(In this context, It is important to note the general historic Arabization and Islamicization upon the indigenous people & more about the myth that “all of the middle east is originally Arab“).

 
[GUESS WHAT] THE MIDDLE EAST DOES NOT “BELONG” TO ARABS
 
What historic human suffering done is done, the Arabization monster that has swept through the middle east crushing [eliminating, dwindling its population & wide oppression] in its way all other indigenous people in the middle east and in north Africa, its consequences are still resulting in minorities’ plight, but the Arab world have yet to grow up and realize the reality that neither the world nor the middle east belongs only to one race.

 
WHY NOT TALK ABOUT PRE ISRAEL’S RE-ESTABLISHING?
 
Why do you think the Arab propagandists always avoid the initiation milestone of Arab massacres on Jews by Hitler’s buddy the Arab Islamic leader the Mufti [*, *, *, *, *] (the inspirer of the butcher: Yasser Arafat) ? If not for it being the mark and typical exposed cause (which is plain hatred)?
 
 
 
 
 
UNPRECEDENTED RACIST ISOLATION BY THE POWER OF THE ARAB MONSTER
 
Show me one more country that is so isolated, economically, politically and (more importantly) security wise, by haters, as the Israel freedom island in the ocean of Arab racism & tyranny.
 
 
As lamentably the UN, EU & its policies, and even US policy makers that push for an Arab- ‘Palestine’ state while pressing only Israel for more concessions, are entirely hijacked by the oil Arab bosses, who should [then] even care about a “Zionist” lobby in Washington?
Just remember that it’s this international Arab lobby that is so intolerant as much as so powerful, it will shut down or at least minimize the world outcry about (Arab racism’s crimes on Africans especially) the genocide in Sudan,
the plight of non-Arab or/and non-Muslim minorities in all of the Arab Muslim apartheid world (Like “apartheid South Africa”. … non-Muslims are treated as second-class citizens the despised Dhimmi.), or even human rights violation of all citizens in that repressive world, but will keep pressing [instead] damning ‘resolutions’ & bullying the world on racist boycotts against the Israeli victim of Arab terrorism.
 

If not for the Arab international vast power, how else can one explain the world media & UN’s silence on “Palestinian” crimes against humanity upon their own people? [asides from the usual massive corruption and stealing from their poor people] like Terrorist organizations operate from within civilian population, while cynically exploiting uninvolved civilians and using them as human shields, using young boys as human bombs, willingly, or unknowingly, even using toddlers?

 

 

 

DEHUMANIZATION OF ISRAELIS [INCLUDING ISRAELI VICTIMS]
 
When not busy hearing lessons, sermons by radical Islam’s animalistic teaching referring to Christians as “pigs” and to Jews as “apes” [* * * * *], the “best” respect the Arab mainstream media and leaders can [let their audiences to] relate to Israelis is in a frame of “brutal soldiers”, Can somebody explain to me how come Israeli soldiers who are (among) the most humane in the world, knocking on door to door, in spite of booby traps awaiting them, risking their lives in every anti-terror operation trying so hard not to cause too many casualties on the aggressive Arab side. Inventing low range missiles maximum precision to minimize collateral damage, and these beautiful soldiers that are more compassionate on Arab kids then their proper Arab parents are [those that send them on the front line covering for coward adult terrorists, in the ‘Pallywood’ bloody theater of war to gain sympathy in international cameras when finally Arab kids are hurt, it’s the Israelis who are the last ones that want this to happen, which is exactly why the Arabs choose to use these inhumane tactics against Israelis’ humanity,] are called by any vile name in the book by Arab racists?
In fact, unlike in Israel that any incident is reported, no matter who’s side lost lives, there are hardly any Israeli victims of Arab attacks in Arab mainstream & “moderate” media, You don’t see Israelis as humans, never pictures of Israeli children who are victims, a cry a tear a laugh, you see only “occupation tanks“.

Isn’t it time to point the finger on who’s really inciting the Arab streets, which is not an event in it of itself, but the venomous reporting by their irresponsible leadership, clergy and “intellectuals”?
As the great Nonie Darwish said in an astonishing clarification: “We Arabs fight a Jew of our own imagination”..
Lebanese Brigitte Gabriel: It was Israel who came to help the Christians in Lebanon. … I realized I was sold a fabricated lie by my government, about the Jews and Israel….

 

 
ARABS = HYPOCRISY
 
And if you haven’t had enough of Arab hypocrisy (who define in their charter that they are Arab & Islamic but Israel can’t have one place for Jews escaping persecution), try this, it’s rather this Arab goliath of persecuting Arabism’s racism, the Arab world’s racism The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha’is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo., the culture with inherited racism that dares categorizes Israelis’ natural fear for their lives [What? Fear of terror? you’ve got to be kidding, the Arabs can’t even “give” that to Israeli victims (The Arab racism of playing Israelis’ fear of Arab terror as “racism”), I guess, that in Arab racism’s animalism that don’t see them as human but (Christians & Jews) as apes & pigs (or in the “best – moderate” case, still not human enough), it can start making senseless “sense”,] as “racism” [before and after that infamous Durban bigotry conference *, *, *] & efforts of defense as “apartheid”, imagine that.
 
Speaking of Arab hypocrisy, why isn’t there any Jew [allowed to reside] in 100% racist real [not as in Arabists propaganda or those paid, financed by the Arab lobby to use empty bombastic language term, but in the real sense of:] Apartheid, “Judenrein” – “Palestine” controlled land?
What about this despicable inexcusable “pure Arab” supremacy and ethnic cleansing that goes on undisturbed in the 21st century anyhow?
 
 
 
CULT OF HATRED
 
But what makes their fascism so monstrous is also their burning diabolical flames of hatred:
Here are some typical hate & death cult messages from the Islamic bigotry of Jihadism:
From a Lebanese Suicide Bomber Induction Ceremony (1996): “We swear by the blood and severed bodies of our children and the torment of our prisoners, and we will reply blowing our bodies!”
Hassan Nasrallah = Hizbollah Sec. Gen. (2005): “We consider [America] to be an enemy because it is the greatest plunderer of our treasures, our oil, and our resources, while millions in our nation suffer unemployment, poverty, hunger, unmarriageable, ignorance, darkness, and so on.”
“Our motto, which we are not afraid to repeat year after year, is: Death to America.”

Hassein Suadd Al-Qassam Brigades Commander (Dec. 2005): “We succeeded, with Allah’s grace, to raise an ideological generation that loves death like our enemies love life.”
Palestinian TV – Suliman Sutari, before thousands of chanting fanatics. (July 8, 2005): “Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists. They’re [Allah’s] enemies and the enemies of the religion. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t even leave one.”
Radical Islamism = racism = genocide. Jihad -Islamism.
Muslim “Palestinians” teach their kids: ‘Wipe Out the Jews’. Anti-Semitic Hate Speech in the Name of Islam …May 16, 2008 … Hamas … Disney clone…
Death cult & hatred for non Muslims, Usama bin Laden declared: “Death is better than living on this Earth with the unbelievers among us.”
Hamas advocates Killing Jews, simply for being Jews.

Wave of hatred concentrates on Jews in Britain, Vitriolic hatred of Jews is also a regular feature of the speeches and sermons of extremist Islamists and Jihadists.
A terrible admission: We were brought up to hate – and we do – Telegraph, They said: “May God destroy the infidels….
Muslim leader: Only Muslims are innocent… he notes that because non-Muslims have rejected Islam, none of them are innocent. Therefore attacks like 9/11 and 7/7 are perfectly justified.

‘The Palestinian Struggle Must be An Islamic Jihad’ …. The Jews and Christians are infidels, enemies of Allah, his Messenger, and the believers.
Nasrallah was on record boasting: “The Jews love life, so that is what we shall take away from them. We are going to win because they love life and we love death.”
Center for Religious Freedom, Various Saudi government publications gathered for this study, most of which are in Arabic, assert that it is a religious obligation for Muslims to hate.
Hamas slogan, which has inspired countless jihadist bombers: “Allah is its goal, The Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Charter, jihad .. Hamas is committed to continuing jihad against “the Jews” until Allah’s victory … Oh Allah, show the Jews a black day… Oh Allah, annihilate the Jews and…  .

 
 
There was nothing of an exaggeration in Golda Meir’s expression that: “Peace will come when Arabs will begin to love their children more than they hate us”.
 
 
 
 
SPINNING PALLYWOOD – EMPTY  FALSE “ISSUES”
 
A thick dark cloud over the years created by the “Palestinian” Arab hollywood [or Pallywood] propaganda has shadowed over the reality of the middle east.
No war [probably] has been so altered in history books and even in present conscious in any mainstream reporting.
 
The Arabs are masters in creating symbols and flags on what their so called struggles are supposedly all about, it is a weather changing phenomenon, as deceptive as they always are, in an attempt to “revive” world’s sympathy for their self made “victim-hood” from the beginning, past & present self inflicted self-destruction, every “season” they manage to refresh – come up with a new “issue”, today it’s a defense wall against Arab genocide bombers, yesterday it was a checkpoint for terrorists, the day before that it was ‘how dare Israeli police “invade” and arrest a Jihadi leader’, before that they pinned some Arab children killed by Arab adults [only in order to be able to pin it] on the Zionists, (Muhammad Al-Dura  anyone?) etc. the “best” and most prolonged spin is of course that  “occupation” crappy excuse, while quite a few subjects have been falsified so thoroughly as the recent history of the West Bank and Gaza, never mind that winning a battle hardly justifies such a term, especially by a bunch of people [whose parents are mostly] not natives (a not-just-rhetorical question: What is Arabs’ connection to Judea or Muslims to Jews’ Jerusalem & to other of their holy places anyhow?) nor is it any answer to the massacres intended mainly inside mainland Israel,
or all the slaughtering before the 1967 birth of the so called “occupation”, and on top of all that, little is known that the Arab bigots refer to all of the land as “occupation”, these infamous liars with forked tongues [will lie to western media on what they really want], by mentioning it among themselves they really mean the end of Israel.
 
 
WHAT “CAUSE”?
 
If you are still brainwashed by the “occupation” myth, Try this, find the common theme that runs through Hezbollah’s Nasrallah’s words: If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. , Fatah’s “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas’ Holocaust denial & Hitler’s ‘MeinKampf” being best seller in Gaza or in the wider middle east?

 
Ever wondered why is it that with each new offer from the kind Israelis, the Arabs always go backwards and nothing tangible of peace is really achieved?
 
You don’t need a medic to tell you that if you can’t define the disease a cure is impossible.
 
 
THE [TINY MINORITY] FEW COURAGEOUS ARABS THAT STAND UP AGAINST RACISM AND FOR ISRAEL’S RIGHT
 
Not all is lost in Arabia, the few heroes like Arabs for Israel, should be applauded, it shows that once you start recognizing the root of the “conflict” = bigotry, confront it & fight it, you can finally move on and coexist with people who are different in: race, religion, origin, culture, etc.
(See more rare moderates).
Replacing tolerance for bigotry, love for hatred, peace for war.

 
 
NO RACISM NO CONFLICT!
 
The only “conflict” applicable [in case you prefer to use rather the term “conflict”], is that it’s actually a conflict between Islamo Arab deadly intolerance and [clashing with] Israelis’ quest for life and tolerance.
 
Calling the “conflict” by its real name is important to “solve” it.
It is clear, it was always the case [and still is] that the Arab Muslims’ initiated “conflict” with the non Arab, non Muslim minority, was/is nothing but Arab racism & obsessive Islamofascism, (The role that bigotry plays in the Arab-Israeli conflict) as long as the Arab Muslim mainstream does not halt its hatred drive, put a stop to instilling the virus in their children, in ‘Death cult’ indoctrination, and their masses “indulging” in satanic cartoons, hype anti Israel propaganda in every “report”, blaming Arab kids’ deaths on Israeli innocent defenders rather than on Arab culprit adults that exploit and use them, the glorification of “Palestinian” mass murderers as “martyrs”,

    

and its plain  Anti-Semitism in the Arab/Muslim World (documented), including among “friendly” Arab States to the west, no gesture [release of ‘Palestinian’ terrorists or land give away], on top of so many gestures by Israel the gem, will erase the “conflict”, the past, present and future responsibility is entirely on the Arab Muslims bloody (with the blood of both sides) hands.

Being a minority in a majority hostile middle east – Arab racism & Islamic bigotry against Israel

 

 

Let’s face it, had Israel be just another Arab, Muslim country, non of the so called ‘Arab Israeli conflict’ would have existed at all.

 

Had it been really [mainly] about “land” (or/and about a flag), the Arabs would have agreed to the UN’s partition plan/offer in 1948.

 

But No! The Arab racists and Islamic bigots wouldn’t have it just as long as there’s also a Jewish state.

 


What “territories” did the Arabs “fight” about in the 1920’s massacres on the Jews?

Can anyone point for me the exact “territory”, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s “case” in “dispute” is all about?

 

Had it been about Arab world being “preoccupied” with the Arab “Palestinians”, the Arabs wouldn’t have oppressed, persecuted, massacred them (in Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, S. Arabia, Iraq, etc.).

 

Had the Arab world been real brothers to the Arabs that call themselves
“Palestinians” (since the 1960’s), they wouldn’t have prevented any chance by humane heroic Israel to improve their status, but No! The Arab anti-Israel racists always preferred using them and their misery against the “Zionist enemy”, it also ss a devious diversion for their population being
constant victims of the horror of all Arab oppressive dictatorships.

 

Just a side note, Can anyone answer me this, How come it was rather the
Arab filthy oil rich countries that were behind Europe’s pledge of billions of
dollars to the “Palestinians” in 2007?

 

Why can’t the Arab Muslim majority accept the Israeli minority in its midst
just as the Israeli democracy accepts its 20% Arab minority? [even though it is
the only refuge for persecuted Jews while Arabs have so much land]?

 

It is clear, it was always the case that the Arab Muslims’ initiated
“conflict” with the non Arab, non Muslim minority, is nothing but Arab racism
& Islamofascism, as long as the Arab Muslims does not erase its hatred drive
in their children via satanic cartoons, hype anti Israel propaganda in every
“report”, glorification of “Palestinian” mass murderers as “martyrs”, no gesture
[release of ‘Palestinian’ terrorists or land give away], on top of so many
gestures by Israel the gem, will erase the “conflict”, the bigotry is entirely
on the Arab Muslims bloody (with the conflict’s victims’ blood o both sides)
hands.

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:

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;
