The ascent of radical Islam is, perhaps, the natural culmination of a century’s worth of failed political systems in Muslim countries that were driven by morally bankrupt ideologies, led by cruel dictators, or both.In the 1930s, German-style fascism appealed to Arabs in Palestine and Egypt. Soviet-style communism had sympathetic governments in Afghanistan, Algeria and Yemen. Baathism took hold in Syria and Iraq. The secular Egyptian dictator Gamal Abdel Nasser promised a new pan-Arabism that would do away with colonial borders that divided the “the Arab nation.” Then there is the more pragmatic authoritarianism that survives in Muammar el-Qaddafi’s Libya or in the petrol-monarchies in the Gulf.Radical Islam may be as totalitarian and as morally bankrupt as any of these past or mostly defunct “isms,” but its current appeal isn’t hard to figure out. Unlike fascism or communism, radical Islam is locally grown, and not plagued by charges of foreign contamination. Indeed, Islamists claim to wage jihad against the modernism and globlization of the outside, mostly Westernized world. Such a message resonates in stagnant, impoverished Muslim countries….

As the president of Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria, an umbrella organization of Syrian Kurds, I admire your efforts on behalf of human rights globally. I must however express my concerns with your views on having dialogues with Syria’s dictator Bashar Assad.
Dear Senator, the Middle East Conflict extends beyond the Arab-Israeli conflict. I would like to bring to your attention the Plight of Kurds in Syria. Senator, we seek your support in resolving the Kurdish question in Syria peacefully and through dialogue. You should know however that President Assad or Assad Regime has consistently and gravely violated the human and the national rights of the Kurdish people of Syria for the last five decades.

KURDS VS ARAB ‘PALESTINIANS’ – IT PAYS TO BE AN ILLEGITIMATE & MURDEROUS “PALESTINIAN” THAN TO BE A LEGITIMATE PEACEFUL KURD

KURDS VS ARAB ‘PALESTINIANS’
IT PAYS TO BE AN ILLEGITIMATE & MURDEROUS “PALESTINIAN” THAN TO BE A LEGITIMATE PEACEFUL KURD

Dec. 2007

As the world’s about to give yet another state [Jordan ain’t enough?] for the [group of immigrant Arabs into Israel that call themselves as] “Palestinians”, that have never behaved and do not merely fight for a ‘homeland’ which Israel was never theirs anyhow, but have their goal of eliminating Israel, ethnic cleansing and racist genocide, the poor Kurds still sink under oppression by Turkey, by Arab racism in: Syria, Iraq, and by Islamic fascists regime of Iran.

Let’s make it clear, even if there will be a “Palestine” state, it will never change the factual history, that a group of immigrants came into the land of the Jews and hijacked the world comunity via terrorism and Arab oil power to give them yet a second ‘Palestine’ state (after Jordan).

______________________________

THE KURDS
REAL PEOPLE, WITH REAL ASPIRATION OF A DESERVING HOMELAND – THE LEGITIMATE
VICTIMS OF OPPRESSION & ARAB RACISM

Hiding Arab Racism, May 1, 2005 By Adel MakhoulThis book, like Culture and Imperialism, is essentially about Western prejudice against Islam. Said condemns intellectuals in the West who in his eyes are “agents of exploitation”. Yet Said himself is an agent of racism: Arab Racism.

A Pan Arabist, he always supported Arab unity and “Islam” at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples. Said directs and manipulates the Western taste for self criticim, and all that does is deflect the world’s attention from Arab and Moslem attrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc.

Thus, reading Said, you would never realize that Sadam Hussein’s poisoning of the Kurds has never been condemned by one Arab intellectual or leader. This is because a racist prevalent attitude in the Arab mind is that the entire Middle East should be Arab. This also explains the attitude towards Israel, a country that is predominantly non-Moslem and speaks a Middle Eastern language other than Arabic.

The pity is that Said himself is a Christian, yet he never spoke on behalf of Coptic Christians in Egypt, or the right of Christians to practice their faith in Saudi Arabia and probably other places in the Arab World. He is facilitating the overall aim of PanArab Nationalists by distracting the West from what is happening in the Arab world.

For a better understanding of relations between the West and Islam, I recommend books by Bernard Lewis, such as “The Moslem Discovery of Europe” and the “Jews of Islam”. I also recommend books by the Egyptian scholar and Jewish refugee Yael Bat Yeor, such as “The Dhimmi”.

Erasing Ethnic Identity.Syrian Kurds were banned from giving their children names reflecting their ethnic identity.Pary Karadaghi, Director of Kurdish Human Rights Watch in Washington, says one of the most basic ways of showing Kurdish identity was taken away. “The campaign of ‘Arabization’ actually replaced the Kurdish names,” she says. “People could not have Kurdish names on cities, buildings [and] businesses. Children’s names could not be Kurdish.”

Syria’s Kurds struggled for years to survive despite government oppression on many fronts. They closely watched their Iraqi counterparts, who achieved a measure of autonomy in the 1990s, and pressed Damascus for their own rights. Their demands were ignored or sometimes met with waves of repression. http://www.khrw.org/advocate/2005/syrias_kurds_struggle_for_rights.htm

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

December 13, 2007

Arab racism must go

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

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

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

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

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

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

1) A Summit based on Arabist false language. 2) Is Israel’s survival on the table?

November 28, 2007

1) A Summit based on Arabist false language. 2) Is Israel’s survival on the table?

Re: ILLEGAL Arab “Palestinians” have semantics

Let’s see, those Arab immigrants grandchildren, the so called “Palestinians”, don’t really pay much for their parents/grandparents, and their own crimes of initiating attacks on little Israel with a clear attempt of annihilation (What “occupation”? what was their plan in 1929, 1948, and all those years priort to 1967? and why are most attacks on innocent unarmed Israelis in: Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya, Haifa, etc.?) So basically, they are back at square one, when the ILLEGAL Arab “Palestinians” refused the UN offer of a two states solution.

Now they have all the “moral” language all of a sudden? They can sing all day ñlong the fake excuse for the so called “occupation”, and Israel can’t even cry for it’s survival from Islamic Arab racist terrorism and genocide plans?

Notice this summit, it is all about what the Arabs demand, Arabs were always so good in exploiting kind Israelis’ urgent desire for peace, What else will the Israeli GIVERS not stop at???

Foreign policy – But we were told that the Arabs hate us because of supposedly being biased against Arab “Palestinians”… – Propagandists’ “Palestinian” card, How much is it really worth?

November 26, 2007

But we were told that the Arabs hate us because of supposedly being biased against Arab “Palestinians”…

Nov/2007
REMEMBER?

Wild Arabist writers/”activists” have been flooding us for years with brainwashing nonsense as if the Arab Muslim world is “enraged” mainly by the “Palestinian” Israeli conflict.

If only… — this is what they have been selling us for so many years — if only we’d be on the side of the “palestinian” Arabs, all would be singing kumbaya, the “peace loving” Arab world would just come rushing to embrace us.
LIARS!

Never mind the blatant daring hypocrisy of that Arab world, that never really cared about the Arab “Palestinian” brothers, on the contrary, it never allowed any improvement in their status, for fear of losing that anti-west card, (shoved at the westerners ever so often) of: “look at the poor ‘Palestinians'”.

The Arab nations keep the ‘Palestinians’ and their descendants in squalor. They are denied citizenship rights. They are denied work. They are denied property. They are denied their human rights because they are and always will be a political football in the Arab campaign against Israel.
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=36412

The same vicious historic crimes, the Arab world leaders have been committing with this group of Arabs who call themselves (recently as) “Palestinians”, as in 1948, chasing them out with bragging promises of [ethnic cleansing and genocide] “throwing all the Jews into the sea”.

Even Jew haters “aryans-supremacists” have jumped the bashing-Israel wagon, oh no, not that they ever like the Arab BROWN “inferior” people, of course not! they’d like to get “rid” of them… as soon as possible, But for the time being, it can be used against the people they are so bitter jealous and hate so blindly, the Jews.
NOW WHAT?

So the US has already helped in Israel’s giving away Gaza to the Arab “Palestinians” [2005], an enormous sacrifice, uprooting entire families, communities, exposing and diminishing the little borderline with an enemy that is bent on eliminating Israel 24/7, when the only thing Israel got back is more support among their mainstream for Hamas type of advocating Genocide, still militants firing rockets into Israeli residential homes, still attempts of ‘genocide bombings’.
Where do Arabs stand in its anti-west, as well as in its use of the “Palestinian” propaganda card? Is it the same, better or worse?

So Israel has released hundreds of dangerous “Palestinian” terrorists, out of good will, how do “Palestinians” react? More demands, Qassam missiles aimed at Israeli kindergartens are still on, why not?
Where do Arabs stand in its anti-west, as well as in its use of the ‘Palestinian’ propaganda card? Is it the same, better or worse?

Annapolis 2007: President George W. Bush and Sec. Condoleeza Rice are pushing hard on Israel to give even more to Arabs that never manage to make one iota of investing in peace, not even reducing its media’s demon-ization of Israel.
Where do Arabs stand in its anti-west, as well as in its use of the ‘Palestinian’ propaganda card? Is it the same, better or worse?

IDF Concerned Hamas May Detonate Tunnels to Derail Summit
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/124358

And what if… Bush succeeds in a big historic push for Arab “Palestinians” sake/favor (a group of people that never wanted to be improved, that has chosen death cult over life at any given opportunity by kind Israelis)? But we were told that the Arabs hate us because of supposedly being biased against Arab “Palestinians”…

Try this:
How many Arabists will welcome any improvement in relations among Arabs & Israel?
OK, ENOUGH OF THE NONSENSE FOR SO LONG, NOW, TO THE PROBLEM/S

But don’t bet on Arabists ever to bother using real logical questions, the REAL ISSUES to be brought up, like, Are the Arabs, Muslims ready yet for democracy & free societies, have tnheir mainstream education in mosques & madsassas really strat to change? Is all of their media began to be less hateful of the “other”?

As you won’t expect any true points, matters that matter to be discussed, as they don’t sit well with their propaganda.

Even though it will answer all above points, plus: Iraq war, Lebanon, and other Arab on Arab, Muslim on Muslim violence.

Technorati –

To the Arab Muslim anti-Israel propagandist:

October 28, 2007

To the Arab Muslim anti-Israel propagandist:

1) Are you denying that the Arab racist attacks on Jews in Israel/”palestine” has started since 1838 (Safed) [so were the attacks in 1883, 1920, 1921, 1929 – Hebron, etc.]? 2) Had Israel be a (mostly) Arab-Muslim State, would the intolerant Arab-Muslim Goliath world not accept them?

3) Why is there a complete silence on the historical fact of Arab immigration late 1800s early 1900s into Israel/”palestine”?

4) What anti-Israel bigotry is stronger, the “Arab racism”; factor? or the ‘Islamic-Jihad’ factor?

5) ‘Moral equivalence’ Do you have Arab activists on behalf of Israeli victims, just like you have Jewish, Israeli, Zionists activists for the (so called) ‘Palestinian cause’ (whatever that is…)?

6) If humane Israel would really go after “unarmed poor palestinians” as the ‘Pallwood’ propagandists tell us, How many Arabs would have survived Israel’s might?

7) Who’s more at fault, the Arab Muslim “Palestinians” parents pushing for Shahid-isim, or the indoctrinating Mullahs, Imams in the holy Mosques for using “Palestinian” kids and women as human bombs and as human shields (so they can blame the Zionists when Arab kids die)?

8] What would have happened if Arab Muslim “Palestinians” would have invested as much energy in rebuilding their lives as they do in destroying both nations’ lives in fascistic Jihad, total hatred and campaign for GENOCIDE [to “drink the blood of the Jews” or to “push them all to the sea”, or to “wipe them off of map”]?

9) Why does “bad” IDF Israeli army announce an area residents’ civilians to evacuate before an operation against terrorists?

10) Why did Humane Israel’s IDF invented specially low range missiles designed to hit ONLY the [terror] target and minimize collateral damage?

11) When was the last time the “Palestinian” well oil-ed propaganda machine has retracted [or even apologized] for it’s usual PALLYWOOD fake images industry?

12) What’s the difference between a Christian in Indonesia, Buddhist in Thailand, Christian in Nigeria, in Philippines, Australians in Bali (2002), non Muslims in London (0707/2005), in Madrid (bombing), “not the-right-kind-of-Muslims” in Shiite-Sunni hateful massacres in Iraq, oppression & massacres in the “Islamic Republic of Iran”, and Israeli victims of the same “evil ideology”?

13) What’s a harder oppression, your “average” Arab Muslim regime’s on it’s own people, Hamas-tan Islamic Apartheid [which most “Palestinians” supported!] on non Muslims, or the pro-Jihad parents’ on their kids?

14) What would have happened if at least ONE Arab Muslim nation [regular or oil-ed one] would really care about the Arab [brothers, that since the 1960’s started to call themselves as] “Palestinians” and let them get off the terror slum into normality and even prosperity?

15) What part of ‘BLIND FASCISM’ do Arab-Muslims deny, the usual obsessed anti Israel demonization [no matter what Israel does] or the reluctance to see Israel’s super kind gestures for those that are trying to kill them [releases from prison, giving away own land vital to it’s security, humanitarian aid, etc.] not as goodness but as “weakness”?

16) Why is it that when Islamists terrorists [Hamas or Hezbullah, Islamic Jihad, etc.] succeed in making sure Arab kids die [with their known tactics of cowardly firing among or behind children, etc.] the Arabs, Muslims rejoice and the Israelis, Jews are saddened ?

16) How can land be an issue [or the blatant lies the Arab lobby’s financed: Jimmy Carter has said, though he admitted that Israel is a great equal democracy for all, Arabs and Jews alike!’] if “moderate” Palestinian official government still has venomous hatred and pro ‘death cult’ in it’s regular curriculum and on it’s official TV, or that such “moderate” Arab media outlets [like Al Jazeera] still glorify mass murder as “martyrdom”?

17) Who’s more powerful, the Arab Muslim Goliath Oil mafia “lobby” on the world or a Chinese, Italian, Israeli, Irish, pharmaceutical, cigarettes lobbyists in Washington?

18) Had the International Arab Muslim lobby of nations in the UN [or the EU] not threatened other nations to bash Israel 24/7 [motivated by intolerance only!], What would be then the outcome?

Islamic Hezbullah’s mommy & Iran’s buddy: SYRIA, IT’S PURSUIT OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

Islamic Hezbullah’s mommy & Iran’s buddy: SYRIA, IT’S PURSUIT OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

Syria, meanwhile, is coming under fire this week as evidence mounts of its own alleged pursuit of nuclear facilities and its support of Hizbullah. The Associated Press reports:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071024/ap_on_re_mi_ea/syria_suspect_site
Commercial satellite images show construction in Syria that resembles the early stages of a small North Korean-model nuclear reactor, a report said Wednesday, speculating that it was the site hit last month by an Israeli airstrike.
