I’d like to see him say this to an Israeli soldier’s face

February 19, 2012

We haven’t featured Islamic Jew hatred for a while, so here’s a good one to jump back in with.

Call it a form of compensation: the Arabs’ military record has been so miserable whenever they face modern, Western-style armed forces, that they have to tell lies about their foes to cover up the fact they get their butts kicked with stunning regularity. In this case, that Jews are so afraid to face the brave, brave knights of Allah that they would rather take a dump inside their tanks, than go outside to find relief.

I mean, you might think it’s just locker room braggadocio and that no one would take it seriously, but, no. This esteemed cleric is dead serious that this is the truth, and I’m willing to bet his audience ate it all up. They’re… “trusting” like that.

Anyway, I’ll let the learned Muhammad al-Arifi speak for himself:

And here’s the transcript.

Let’s see: those cowardly, self-soiling Jews have handed the Arabs their head in four major wars since 1948 and several informal actions in-between and since. (Ask Hamas how the last Israeli incursion went.) The only time the Arabs have ever done well is when the Israelis show unseemly restraint, such as in Lebanon in 2006. Had they made up their minds to wipe out Hizbullah, I guarantee you it would have been Hassan Nasrallah needing the change of clothes.

Oh, and nice little swipe there at the Americans in Iraq, Muhammad! How’d that work out for al-Qaeda, anyway?

Schmuck.


The Gnomes of Zurich are tools of the Zionist Conspiracy!!

October 8, 2011

No, this isn’t a round of Illuminati, but horrifying reality: according to Saudi journalist Fahd ‘Amr Al-Ahmadi, Switzerland is a Jewish plot!

“In Europe, there have been dozens of brutal wars. Napoleon and Hitler invaded most of the continent, and two world wars burned up most of the countries. Nevertheless, no one attacked Switzerland, which for 500 years has remained an oasis of peace in the heart of a burning hell.

“These days, the world is uniting under economic, political, and military alliances. Nevertheless, Switzerland refuses to join any international alliance or organization, including the EU and the UN [sic].”

“This isolation and absolute neutrality immediately bring to mind The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which discuss a ‘safe haven’ where the [Jews’] wealth [can] be guarded against the wars they themselves spark. They will work to concentrate the world’s wealth [in this ‘safe haven’] so that it becomes their delicious slice [of the world’s wealth], for when they touch off the world revolution [that they are planning].

“In his book Pawns in the Game, William Guy Carr discusses the Jews’ role in the rise of Napoleon and Hitler and their efforts to prevent an attack on Switzerland. In his book Secret World Government, Cherep[-Spiridovich] explains how world Jewry removed Switzerland from its plans to wreak anarchy and wars, so as to protect their money there. Thus, Switzerland gained a reputation as a safe haven in which to hoard the wealth of the goyim…

“Though I know this hypothesis seems fanciful, reality consistently supports it….”

Fahd, old buddy, you get bonus points for working in a mention of The Protocols, but, somehow, I don’t think “reality” means what you think it means.

Read the whole thing. This is what passes for the intellectual mainstream in the Muslim world. So, naturally, it’s the fault of Israel and the Jews that they can’t make peace with such tolerant neighbors.

PALATE-CLEANSER: If you want to wash the bad taste out of your mouth, have a look at what Egyptian journalist Sharif ‘Abd Al-Ghani wrote in an article in a Qatari newspaper, castigating his co-religionists for their Jew-hatred. An excerpt:

“Sheikh Al-Bari’s stories would cause me and everyone else behind him to curse ‘the Jews – descendants of apes and pigs’ – from the depth of our souls. But there was one thought that occupied my mind, and one question that I could not let go and that no one could answer: Why does our sheikh – and we behind him – shower all these curses on the Jews, but then add the expression ‘peace be upon him’ when speaking of their prophet Moussa [Moses]? Are the Jews not people of the Book and among those whom the Koran orders us to treat kindly so long as they do not fight us? And how could Allah have created them so impure and damned if they are the disciples of a prophet?”

It’s not perfect by any means, as you’ll see when you read the whole thing, and I’m not as sanguine as Walter Russell Mead that this may represent the beginnings of real change in the Islamic world, but one has to admit that it’s a vast improvement over the irrational Jew-hatred that infests and cripples it.

But, for everyone’s sake, let’s hope it’s indeed a spark of reason and critical thinking that catches fire.

The Cannes film festival: Antisemitic or just plain irrelevant?

May 28, 2011

There was a controversy at this years Cannes Film Festival when Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier admitted his sympathies for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. While he was expelled from Cannes for his remarks, Poliwood’s Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd take it as an opportunity to look at Antisemitism and anti-Americanism in the larger European artistic community, as well as questioning whether Cannes as a vehicle for great movies has degenerated into irrelevance:


Oh, so that’s why the Jews are in Israel! Now I get it!

May 18, 2011

They’re there so the Muslims can massacre them and rid the world of their evil, just as Allah wishes! Isn’t that wonderful?

Hey, don’t take my word for it. Just ask Hamas MP and Islamic cleric(1) Yunis al-Astal:

The transcript:

Yunis Al-Astal: The [Jews] are brought in droves to Palestine so that the Palestinians – and the Islamic nation behind them – will have the honor of annihilating the evil of this gang.

[…]

All the predators, all the birds of prey, all the dangerous reptiles and insects, and all the lethal bacteria are far less dangerous than the Jews.

[…]

In just a few years, all the Zionists and the settlers will realize that their arrival in Palestine was for the purpose of the great massacre, by means of which Allah wants to relieve humanity of their evil.

[…]

When Palestine is liberated and its people return to it, and the entire region, with the grace of Allah, will have turned into the United States of Islam, the land of Palestine will become the capital of the Islamic Caliphate, and all these countries will turn into states within the Caliphate. When this happens, any Palestinian will be able to live anywhere, because the land of Islam is the property of all Muslims.

Until this happens, we must reject all the resettlement plans, naturalization, or even reparations prior to the return of the refugees.

(Emphases added)

Remember, this is the organization the Left would have us and Israel treat as legitimate “partners for peace.” The same group that regularly and indiscriminately rockets Israeli towns and cities — even school buses. And the same group that praised bin Laden on his death.

It’s all part of the divine plan, don’t you see? Just as kindly Mr. al-Astal explained.

(1) Which means he’s well-schooled in Islamic theology and law. Keep that in mind.

FDR in favor of Jewish quota laws?

March 25, 2011

It’s hard to say otherwise, given the source is official United States diplomatic records:

The document which Dr. Medoff sent me last week, concerning FDR and the Holocaust, was frankly shocking. It had to do with the Allies’ occupation of North Africa, which they liberated from the Nazis in November 1942. At the time, President Roosevelt publicly pledged the Allies would do away with the anti-Jewish laws that had been in force in the region. But when FDR met in Casablanca with local government leaders in January 1943, he took a very different line. The transcript of those discussions, which Dr. Medoff cites, reveals what FDR said about the status of the 330,000 Jews living in Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia: “The number of Jews engaged in the practice of the professions (law, medicine, etc) should be definitely limited to the percentage that the Jewish population in North Africa bears to the whole of the North African population…The President stated that his plan would further eliminate the specific and understandable complaints which the Germans bore toward the Jews in Germany, namely, that while they represented a small part of the population, over fifty percent of the lawyers, doctors, school teachers, college professors, etc., in Germany, were Jews.”

Hard to believe a president would say such a thing? Maybe, but the source is unimpeachable: the transcript appears in Foreign Relations of the United States, a multivolume series of historical documents published by the U.S. government itself. The Casablanca volume was published in 1968, but did not attract much notice at the time. Dr. Medoff has done a public service by bringing it to our attention again.

Emphasis added.

Fortunately, as the author of the article, former New York City mayor Ed Koch points out, the Allies didn’t follow FDR’s suggestion.

I realize Roosevelt held the prejudices common to his class, but the “…understandable complaints which the Germans bore toward the Jews in Germany…”? While at that very moment, Jews were being herded into camps, enslaved, gassed, massacred, and burned? Wow…

And don’t tell me he didn’t know.

Too bad Willkie lost.

Teaching toddlers Jew-hatred

February 25, 2011

You want to know just how enlightened and tolerant the Islamic world  is? Watch as a Saudi Egyptian toddler on Iqra TV in 2002 is praised for how well she’s learned her lessons in antisemitism:

From the transcript:

Amer: How old are you, Basmallah?

Basmallah: Three and a half.

Amer: Are you a Muslim?

Basmallah: Yes.

Amer: Basmallah, do you know the Jews?

Basmallah: Yes

Amer: Do you like them?

Basmallah: No.

Amer: Why don’t you like them?

Basmallah: Because.

Amer: Because they are what?

Basmallah: They are apes and pigs.

Amer: Because they are apes and pigs. Who said that about them?

Basmallah: Our God.

Amer: Where did he say that about them?

Basmallah: In the Koran.

That toddler would be about 12 or 13, now. I wonder what other lessons she’s learned?

By the way, Iqra TV described its mission as:

“…presenting the true moderate face of Islam to people in the West where media does not present an objective view on the Islamic Law.”

I don’t know about “moderate, but it is an objective view of Islam.

Oh, and the accusation that a Jewess poisoned Muhammad is part of canonical Islamic teachings. Given the circumstances, I’m surprised only that she stopped at poison.

Details on the assault on Lara Logan

February 21, 2011

Stripped and beaten with flag poles. Great way to celebrate your victory and do your country proud, you jackasses.

Of course, in their sick, twisted minds they thought they were justified in attacking and raping Logan, because they thought she was Jewish.

Maybe it’s time for the Ten Plagues to make a return visit.

UPDATE: More nauseating details, courtesy of Dana Loesch.


Lara Logan attacked because she was “Jewish”

February 16, 2011

In a follow up to yesterday’s nauseating story, we see two themes that are central to Islam: contempt for  women and hatred of Jews.  Tragically for Lara Logan, they came to a focus in her. From The New York Post:

“60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, “Jew! Jew!” as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo’s main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.

The TV crew with Logan, who is also the network’s chief foreign correspondent, had its cameras rolling moments before she was dragged off — and caught her on tape looking tense and trying to head away from a crowd of men behind her in Tahrir Square.

“Logan was covering the jubilation . . . when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration,” CBS said in a statement. “It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into a frenzy.

“In the crush of the mob, [Logan] was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.

“She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning,” the network added. “She is currently in the hospital recovering.”

A network source told The Post that her attackers were screaming, “Jew! Jew!” during the assault. And the day before, Logan had told Esquire.com that Egyptian soldiers hassling her and her crew had accused them of “being Israeli spies.” Logan is not Jewish.

Her real religious affiliation, if any, is immaterial. Logan had become the embodiment of the paranoia and conspiracy-mongering in a society that can take seriously claims that Israel has trained sharks to attack Muslims or is sending AIDs-carrying women to Egypt. And Jews have been the declared (by Muslims) enemies of Islam since the days of Muhammad, the invocation of the Muslim massacre of the Jews at Khaybar being a rallying cry to this day. Indeed, the Muslim version of the anti-Christ will be born of a Jew and lead an army of Jews. Thus calling Logan a Jew, as well has her “immodest behavior,” justified her rape. If she had just worn a niqab and stayed in her room like a proper woman… .

But don’t you dare say Islam isn’t tolerant or doesn’t respect women.

via Jihad Watch

UPDATE: The Washington Post reports that Logan is home with her family and adds this chilling note:

When Logan returned Saturday to the United States, she was described as being in shock and not speaking, the source added.

Poor woman. To think what she and her family are going through right now.

Defund the United Nations

December 27, 2010

When I was young, I used to be amused by the crudely-made billboards I’d see along the highways in Southern California that demanded we get out of the UN. Usually they were put up by some John Birch-affiliate, whom I would write off as a bunch of kooks.

Well, I still do think of John Birch and their conspiracy theories as lunatic (thank you, Bill Buckley, for banishing them from the conservative movement), but the sentiment of saying bye-bye to the United Nations now strikes a chord with me. A corrupt playground for dictators and tyrants, it’s also convened two of the worst antisemitic assemblies held by any national government or international agency since the Wansee conference*, “Durban I” and Durban II,” the UN “World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.” Now they want to hold “Durban III” — in New York City.

Roger L. Simon is, like any decent person would be,  outraged:

To return to the langue diplomatique, these events are la vie a l’envers — life upside down. They are the reverse of what they pretend to be and should be labeled the “World Conference for the Promotion of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.” I attended Durban II in Geneva – you can see some reports here and here — and I can say personally that I have never seen anything as quite literally insane. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the keynote speaker of a human rights conference.

The whole thing virtually broke down when several European delegates walked out on the Iranian despot in the midst of one of his predictable anti-Semitic screeds (the US, despite some equivocation, had ultimately declined to go in the first place). UN officials ran and hid from the media after this debacle and you would think they wouldn’t want to repeat such a disgrace but… here they go again with Durban III this September… and in New York, of all places.

These events (I, II and, most probably, III) are basically Festivals of Anti-Semitism, and the UN membership — a substantial portion anyway — just can’t stop themselves from doing it again. It’s pathological, really. They pay lip service to the idea the anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism, but this notion has become increasingly risible. UN attention to tiny Israel (still with under eight million population — less than L.A. county) is nearly as big as all other states combined. Why is that? By 1992 alone there were 65 resolutions concerning Israel. By January 2009, this number rose to 225. All these resolutions are largely led by Islamic states that are basically judenrein, although many of them had substantial Jewish populations in the past.

It’s a black comic moral travesty and our money is paying for it.

The first steps should be to stop this outrage from happening on American soil: official protests (Where is the State Department on this, Madame Secretary?), a denial of funds from Congress (Hello, House Republicans!), a refusal of entry into the US for any delegates, and, if need be, public protests at the conference itself.

And, once it’s held –wherever it’s held– we should walk out of the United Nations, itself; an irredeemable, farcical organization unworthy of our time, our money, and the validation our presence gives it.

Maybe it’s time to make my own billboard.

*And, yes, I’m making that comparison deliberately.

Nazis and Muslims had a common enemy: the Jews

December 21, 2010

Here’s a recent piece from the Jerusalem Post that reminds us of the ideological simpatico between Islam and Nazism, focusing on Yasser Arafat’s uncle, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini:

A newly released report by the US National Archives details the close collaborative relationship between Nazi leaders and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, indicating that Nazi authorities planned to use Husseini as their leader after their conquest of Palestine.

Husseini was paid handsomely by the Nazis for his efforts, recruited Muslims for the SS and was promised that he would be made Palestine’s leader after its Jewish population of 350,000 had been murdered.

The report, Hitler’s Shadow: Nazi War Criminals, US Intelligence and the Cold War, was prepared on the basis of thousands of documents declassified under the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act.

(…)

“We thought the April 1945 contract between the [German] Foreign Office and Husseini was striking evidence of an ideological collaboration both sides hoped would continue after the war.”

Husseini, who died in Beirut in 1974, was apparently paid 50,000 marks per month, and 80,000 additional marks a month for living expenses, according to a contract with the Germans. This was a time when a German field officer typically earned 25,000 marks a year.

According to the report, on November 28, 1941, Adolf Hitler told Husseini that the Afrika Korps would “liberate” Arabs in the Middle East and that “Germany’s only objective there would be the destruction of the Jews.”

SS leaders and Husseini both claimed that Nazism and Islam had common values as well as common enemies – above all, the Jews,” the report states.

And this Nazi influence stretches down to the present day, as statements by current Islamic leaders show.

Some scholars have argued that this Nazi influence corrupted Islam, selectively playing on antisemitic elements that were in the Qur’an. I take a different view, that in each other, Nazism and Islam found a soul-mate, a sympathetic ally, and that each used the other to achieve their desired end: the destruction of the Jews. As Dr. Andrew Bostom has shown, Jew-hatred is a continuing theme in Islam from Muhammad, himself, to the present day. The Nazis didn’t exploit an aberration — they found a friend.

Four lessons in Islamic Jew-hatred

December 10, 2010

I’ve often written here about the antisemitism that is an integral part of Islam, something that has been a constant of the religion since the time of Muhammad, himself. Below are four videos, courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch, that illustrate the vilification, demonization, and barefaced Jew-hatred that are a daily part of Islamic life in the Palestinian Authority.

First, a reminder that fighting Jews is a religious duty, to be carried out until the day of resurrection:

Note the insistence that all agreements are temporary, until Allah commands otherwise. This comes from Muhammad’s example, specifically the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, which Muhammad broke when it was convenient for him to resume fighting his enemies in Mecca.

Next, a charming PA cleric calls for the genocide of the Jews and the killing of Americans. In his words, we must be butchered:

Obviously, he didn’t get the memo that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.

Next up is video of a sermon given during the Second Intifada, helpfully reminding us that Jews are evil and that they should expect to die:

Not quite the Sermon on the Mount, is it?

Finally, a sermon in which a PA cleric relates Allah’s promise that, if the Muslim will fight the Jews, then Muslims will be the masters of the Jews:

Call me a cynic, but, somehow, I’m willing to bet that the sheikh in the video who was so happy that a young boy would promise to commit suicide and murder by blowing himself up among Jews has yet to strap on the explosive belt, himself. They’re always happy to send some poor dumb schmuck who thinks he’s going to be rewarded with wine and virgins, but, somehow, they never get round to doing it themselves.

Odd, that.

Anyway, the point of posting these isn’t just to point out the vicious, murderous Jew-hatred that’s an everyday part of Islam, but to ask a question: How can the supposedly moderate Palestinian Authority be considered a legitimate “partner for peace” when their religious leaders are daily calling Jews enemies of God and demanding their death and destruction, when their educational system inculcates this in their children from the earliest age?

The answer is, of course, they can’t. Not when they’re told every day that fighting and killing Jews –in Israel and around the world– is a command from God, himself. Were Israel to give up all the occupied territories and return to the 1947 borders, there would at best be a temporary truce, a modern-day Hudaybiyyah, which would end with the Muslims resuming their assault on the Jews at their convenience. This is a religious war, not a battle for territory.

The great former Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky, in his book The Case for Democracy, argued that no genuine peace is possible with the Palestinians until their minds were freed of the totalitarian group-think forced on them through their schools and mosques, and their society purged of the intellectual and spiritual poison.

I have to agree. Sadly, I don’t expect it to happen any time soon.

Explain to me again just how, exactly, Israel (or us) is supposed to make peace with these guys?

Leaked cables confirm: Jews are feeling danger in Venezuela

December 3, 2010

From Fausta comes news that, among the thousands of classified cables leaked by Wikileaks and Julian Assange, is evidence that the Jews of Venezuela are increasingly frightened of their own government:

Jewish community leaders told PolCouns the Venezuelan government’s (GBRV’s) attacks and “double-talk,” constant criticism of Israel, growing alliance with Iran, and increasing limitations on freedom of speech contribute to a heightened sense of vulnerability by the Jewish community. …

(…)

XXXXXXXXXXXX said anti-Semitic programs and articles have been regular features of government-owned media since 2004, and “international anti-Jewish campaigns have been tailored for use domestically.” XXXXXXXXXXXX emphasized that the anti-Semitism is “government-sponsored.” He noted that Emilio Silva, the author of a January 20 article on the government website aporrea.org which called for violent demonstrations at the Tiferet synagogue just 10 days before the synagogue was attacked, is still teaching at the pro-government Bolivarian University of Venezuela.

Islamic clerics: “Jews are murderous donkeys… or something”

December 3, 2010

Islamic clerics and scholars love to refer to Jews as descended from or related to apes and pigs, a slur rooted in the Qur’an itself. Not satisfied with that, Egyptian “cleric” Muhammad al-Zoghbi compares Jews to donkeys, to be ridden by Pharoah during their time in Egypt:

From the transcript:

[Pharaoh] would ride a Jew as one might ride a donkey. Let me show you how. Pharaoh would say: “Bring me a Jew, an Israeli.” The he would say to him: “Over here. Bend over and make like a donkey.” The Jew would crouch like a donkey, and Pharaoh would ride on his back, his legs dangling on either side. Sometimes, he would ride him sidesaddle. He would grab him by the collar, and lead him: Giddyup… He would ride him like a donkey because a donkey he is.

We do not encourage such a thing, but I must say that it is due to their sins, arrogance, and conceit that Allah sent enemies to rule them and turn them into donkey underfoot.

But while Jews are donkeys, they’re murderous, bloodthirsty ones that live only for war against peaceful, humble peoples. Don’t take my word for it; just listen to the wise words of another Islamic preacher, Abdallah Samak:

And, in case you don’t understand Arabic (as if I do…):

One of the characteristics of the Jews is that they are outstanding murderers. Who do they kill? If only they killed regular people, but they slayed the prophets. They unjustly slayed the prophets. The Jews are known for their merciless, murderous, and bloodthirsty nature. This is clearly documented in their holy books and writings, without beating about the bush.

[…]

The number one characteristic of the Jews – which appears in the Bible – is that they are always prepared for combat. They believe that it is their fate and destiny to be in a state of perpetual war. This is not what we want. We are seekers of peace and security. We seek to spread love. But we are dealing with a people, a society, that believes that its destiny is linked to war.

Maybe it’s just me, but, if my people were subjected to periodic genocidal massacres and my homeland were surrounded by a bunch of countries that periodically try to destroy it, I might be inclined to be ready for war, too. I’m just sayin’…

Watching those videos, does anyone else get the impression these guys are projecting, just a bit? Samak rants on about warlike Jews, yet it’s the Muslims who keep attacking Israel and blowing up Jews around the world. Meanwhile, Al-Zoghbi accuses the Jews of arrogance, of refusing to assimilate and intermarry. Yet the Qur’an itself proclaims Muslims as the best above all other people and, by implication, the rest as inferior. And intermarriage, the ultimate symbol of assimilation is mostly discouraged for Muslim men and forbidden to Muslim women.  (Stephen Schwartz, himself a convert to Islam, in his book The Two Faces of Islam, has an excellent discussion of the purist, separationist aspects of Saudi Islam.)

The struggle between Israel and the Arab countries isn’t a fight over occupied territories or the rights of this or that victim group: it’s a religious war, brought about by a Jew-hatred hardwired into Islam from the beginning and carried on to this day, as you can see. If Israel were to withdraw to its 1948 boundaries, renounce all offensive weapons, and even abandon Jerusalem, their most holy city,  they would still be under attack.

But don’t you dare say Islam isn’t a religion of peace and tolerance.

Proof that a smart man can also be an idiot

November 14, 2010

I’ve always been a great fan of History and its handmaiden, Archeology. And, like so many History buffs, I have a strong interest in Ancient Egypt, whose civilization was old while my European ancestors were still living in crude villages.

So, it’s with some distress -though, sadly, with little surprise- that I learn that someone whose work I’ve admired, Dr. Zahi Hawass, a renowned archaeologist and an Egyptian vice-minister of culture, is a flaming antisemite. Just listen to his own words:

Transcript.

Anyone else get a “Peter Lorre” vibe from that weaselly host? The guy probably hangs around schoolyards.

Of course, it’s neither uncommon nor unique to Islam for intelligent, well-educated people to hold hateful, false beliefs. Many devout Nazis and Communists also held advanced degrees, and to this day one can find advocates of “Jewish conspiracy” theories in American academia.

But Islam takes antisemitism to whole new levels of respectability, hardwired as it is throughout the religion, including the Qur’an, itself. Dr. Hawass is just repeating what “everyone knows,” including from non-Islamic hate-tracts such as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which was even displayed in an Egyptian museum alongside a Torah as a genuine work. What makes this even more disgusting, however, is that his position as an internationally respected scholar lends credence to these poisonous beliefs within the Islamic world.

In the clip, Dr. Hawass and his interviewer wonder how it is the Muslim world can exert less influence than a small Jewish nation. I suggest to the gentlemen that they begin their investigations with their own sick beliefs.

Antisemitism is the Jews’ fault because of their greed

October 18, 2010

Don’t take my word for it. This comes straight from two honored and esteemed Jordanian scholars on Palestinian TV, so it must be true:

Note also the assertion by the first “scholar,” Arafat Hijazi, that there were no Jews in Palestine 150 years ago. Evidently this learned man has never heard of Hebron. I could be charitable and assume he’s an ignorant, bigoted ass, but then I would have to apologize to donkeys around the world. No, this is one of the lies told by Arab Muslims to delegitimize the State of Israel.

With intellectual leaders such as these two clowns, no wonder Palestinian society is so screwed up.


Jews praying at the Western Wall is “sin and filth”

Note on comments: praising Hitler is not allowed

September 2, 2010

I tolerate quite a bit in the comments section, including some pretty vicious, over-the-top attacks on myself. As I say in the About page, the comments areas are for you folks to talk. I’ll rarely get involved.

One thing I won’t tolerate, however, are comments praising Adolph Adolf Hitler and what he and his filthy cohorts did to the Jews and others. That gets the comment deleted and the author banned, immediately.

Including you, “Thomas Kale.”

“We must teach the children to hate the Jews”

August 16, 2010

Egyptian cleric Sheik Ahmad Al-Johainy has a special message for parents watching his show:

From the transcript:

We must enlighten the younger generation about our cruel enemy. We must show them who the enemies are, who the Jews are. This must be done in several respects.

First, there is the family. The parents must take an interest in their children, and teach them who the Jews are. This must be achieved by means of the Koran, by studying the raids of the Prophet Muhammad, and how he treated the Jews of the Nazir, Quraiza, and Qaynuqa’ tribes – how the Prophet dealt with the Jews, how he signed a treaty with them, only to be betrayed by them, and what he did to them, after they had violated the treaties. We must teach these things to our children. We must plant in our children’s hearts the truth about the Jews – that oppressive and cruel enemy.

[…]

We must teach our children who the Jews are. We must get our children accustomed to hating the Jews. We don’t want our children to grow up knowing nothing.

The Jewish tribes mentioned, the Nazir (Nadir), the Quraiza, and the Qaynuqa, were all subject to persecution, robbery, and, in the case of the Qaynuqa, massacre at the hands of Muhammad. Islamic texts claim, not surprisingly and to put it simply, that “the Jews started it.” Regardless of the truth, Al-Johainy’s citation of them is significant because of their fates. Bear in mind also that Qur’an 33:21 declares Muhammad to be a perfect model of conduct for all Mankind:

Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.

So, if Muhammad hated the Jews and fought them and killed them, how can good Muslim parents not encourage their children to do the same?

I don’t think this is quite what Graham Nash meant when he wrote Teach Your Children.
