Gazan Society. Repulsive to the core.

OPINION

“The message is disturbing yet distinct . . . The answer is straightforward and succinct.”

(Doctor Doolittle 1967)

There are good and bad individuals in all societies and cultures. However, neither are judged by its individuals, as much as being judged by its actions as a whole.

by Alan Simons

Until now, for the most part I have kept out of writing about much of the hate and intolerance that has emanated from Gaza. One never can objectively express a common-sense opinion to a repulsive society that, from its very beginning, emphasizes with passion their primary duty in life from birth is to kill, in whatever means at their disposal, as many Israeli Jews, be it children or adults, as possible.

It’s a known fact, if you want to take control of the minds and souls of your citizens, you start with the children. In this, Gaza excels, and they’re probably better at it than Daesh (ISIS), Hezbollah, the Syrians and Iranians and all the other psychopaths living in the region combined. Today, in the Gaza Strip, the obsessive devotion to kill Jews starts at an early age and is as much a part of the child’s growth as learning to count.

In past years we have been subjected to a plethora of videos emanating out of the Gaza Strip where its children have proudly expressed a willingness to kill Jews, much of which has gone unabated, without the slightest expression of rage, from western-based non-government organisations and UN officials, whose sole interest in life is to make sure their personal monthly incomes continue as well as the successful solicitation for ongoing funding.

Much of the western media refuse to express an honest opinion of the abhorrent hatred existing in the Gaza Strip. They fear they will lose their accreditation and thus their ability of, dare I say it, of reporting with ‘impartiality’ in this god forsaken strip of land. 

Tarek Fatah, well-known and respected Canadian writer, broadcaster, secularist, activist and a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, stated at a UNHRC Geneva conference in 2013, “Any nation, any society, any country that is created on the basis of a hatred towards the others, will soon run out of people that it can hate or groups it can decimate and it will devour itself.”

 Perhaps it’s time to take Fatah seriously and look at this strip of land as a lost cause. After all, none of the region’s Arabs, Turks or Iranians want anything to do with it, unless it is to incite Gazans to kill Jews. 

Killing Jews also strikes a euphoric chord with the adult masses. For devoid of reality, it appeals to many of the region’s adults, who through their earlier years of exposure to child abuse and indoctrination, prefer to ‘return’ to their childhood era where magical thinking reigned supreme. For them, “Kill the Jews” has a nice ring to it. And for many of the western media the very thought of it surely is better than reporting about how the State of Israel is doing its darnedest to assist Syrians through its Operation Good Neighbor project.

 To quote The Times of Israel of July 16, 2017:

“In the year since the operation [Operation Good Neighbor] was launched, over 600 Syrian children, accompanied by their mothers, have come to Israel for treatment. Hundreds of tons of food, medical equipment and clothing have also been sent across the border to Syria, clearly bearing Hebrew labels from Israeli companies. The IDF is also currently facilitating the construction of two clinics within Syria, which will be run by locals and workers from NGOs. This includes logistical coordination and sending over building materials and medical equipment, according to the army. These clinics are meant to support 80,000 Syrians living in the area near the Syrian city of Quneitra, just across the border.”

Over the years I have seen groups of splenetic small-minded antisemite bigots of this world become more adventurous in their misguided fantasy that we Jews are weak, pathetic individuals, without any backbone. Over the years I have seen once respected newspapers, such as Britain’s The Guardian, turn its back on striving to present a balanced view of Middle East issues, to be now in the forefront of stoking the fires of antisemitism and hate. Over the years I have seen NGOs and international rights groups fervently compete for funding by branding themselves as leading authorities on Middle East issues – translate this as Israel apartheid – yet refuse to focus their resources on victims of democide in the region. 

“The stench of hate, pure evil and foul disease continues unabated today”

We have seen Israelis murdered, such as in the 2014 terror attack on a synagogue, the result of which was lauded by Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri who said in a statement. “Hamas calls for more operations like it.” In a separate statement Islamic Jihad added, “Islamic Jihad salutes the operation in Jerusalem which is a natural response to the crimes of the occupier.” The two terrorists killed four rabbis and a policeman died of his injuries. The terrorists used a gun and meat cleavers. At least eight other people were injured. And right on cue, this noxious act, orchestrated by their devil, became a satanic holiday in Gaza.

 And a year later in 2015,an assailant approached the entrance of a Tel Aviv synagogue at prayer time, and stabbed and killed two worshipers.”

This past weekend was no different.  Last Friday the Gazan authority again celebrated in the street by showering its citizens with candies in response to the news that a 19-year-old Palestinian teenager stabbed to death an Israeli 70-year-old grandfather and his two adult children, and gravely wounded his wife in their home.

Celebrating and praising their own murderers is part of their stagnant hypoxia culture. It is not ours. To partially quote Tarek Fatah, “Let them devour themselves.”

A plague on Jihadism!

Publisher’s Comment

by Alan Simons

Gatestone Institute is an American non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank. In a recent statement sent to its subscribers, John Bolton, Chairman, Gatestone Institute and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations asks: “What is the response of the American and European leadership to our new reality? Denial, word games and silence. And verbal attacks on citizens who insist on talking openly about the threats we face. They call us “Islamophobic,” “xenophobic,” or “racist” to try to silence us.

He adds:

“… much of the Middle East is engulfed in civil wars and mass terrorism, as Iran expands its hegemonic reach into in Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq — while continuing to build its nuclear weapons program.

The Christian population of the Middle East, there for 2,000 years, is being subjected to relentless persecution, mass-murder and forced conversion to Islam. Israelis being surrounded by ISIS. The response again of the U.S. and other Western governments: Silence.

We are at a turning point that requires a greater effort. We are at crisis that has grown directly out of the refusal of our leadership to face the nature of our problems and confront them forcefully.”

Many citizens in the West are faced with uncertainty. They see the growth of vicious evil Jihadist cults with no respect for the rules of war, the Geneva Convention, international humanitarian law and the likes. From North America, to Africa, to Europe and stretching through the Middle East to the Far East, the killing of children and adults by suicide bombers, by decapitation, by kidnapping and various other abhorrent methods and the lack of Western governments, as Bolton addresses, to cohesively work as one to rid us of this plague, does nothing to give us confidence in our leaders. Western governments are seen as becoming immobile, retreating into their shell at a time when the electorate want positive forceful action from them.  

However, it is not just Western governments who are amiss. Civil society organizations (CSOs) have also been silent. Their lack of leadership in this issue is reprehensible. How the IMF could produce a statement this past April that said, “Civil society organizations (CSOs) are now more vocal than in the past…  CSOs include business forums, faith-based associations, labor unions, local community groups, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), philanthropic foundations, and think tanks,” is beyond reason.

President Reagan, for all his economic policy failures, left the White House with the highest approval rating of any president since FDR. He once said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” 

One might think our leaders would take heed in Reagan’s remark, instead of being seen as capitulating to Jihadism through their silence and inaction.

OVER SEVENTY YEARS LATER – “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” | “The more things change, the more they stay the same”

 

 

We Have Lost Our Way

Jew-hate is not an option. But for many, they thrive on it. Don’t dismiss it.

As we come to the end of January 2016, let’s take a few minutes to dwell on the sickness that pervades the Middle East and in Europe. Yes, you’re probably rolling your eyes, your eyebrows have reached the upper limits of your forehead, and you’ve started to sigh and shake your head in dismay. So, let’s go right into what I have to say.

Jew-hate item one: “While the victim of terror attack, Dafna Meir 36, and a mother of six children, was being laid to rest in Jerusalem, a Palestinian Facebook page with more than four million followers posted the horrendous picture above. The word written in the middle of the picture is ‘Otniel’, the name of the community where the terror attack took place. After the community’s name, a bloody knife emblazoned with a Palestinian flag on the handle is depicted above words that praise the terrorist. This is a prime example of murderous Palestinian incitement on social media that encourages terror attacks against Israelis and needs to be stopped immediately!”

Jew-hate item two: “The father of the teenage Arab terrorist who murdered mother of six Dafna Meir in her home on Sunday night has expressed pride over his son’s gruesome actions. Murad Bader Abdullah Adais fatally stabbed Meir at the front door to her house in Otniel, as she valiantly struggled to close the door on him and prevent him from slaughtering three of her children who were with her at the time. Adais then fled on foot, sparking a major manhunt which resulted in his capture early Tuesday morning. Speaking to Palestinian media, Adais’s father said he was proud of his son for stabbing the unarmed nurse to death. “I am proud of him,” he said, adding that security forces also detained and interrogated several family members during the arrest operation.”

James McGreevey, the former Governor of New Jersey, was once quoted as saying we are losing sight of civility in government and politics. Debate and dialogue is taking a back seat to the politics of destruction and anger and control. Dogma has replaced thoughtful discussion between people of differing views.

I find it hard not to disagree with McGreevey, other than to say in my opinion we have already lost it, not just in government and politics, but within society! The sickness that is consuming people, coupled with their utter hate and cruelty towards anything that resembles the likes of a Jew, has become intolerable. So let’s call a spade a spade, stop making a plethora of platitudes and excuses for our fellow man, and look directly at some of this month’s who’s-who in the Jew-hate category: 

  • Hizbullah Deputy Secretary-General Na’im Qassem at Beirut Conference for Palestine said: “Our Goal Is To Eliminate Israel.” 
  • A pregnant woman hurt in a stabbing near Jerusalem, Michal Fruman, 30, moderately wounded in terror attack in Tekoa; her unborn baby was unharm; the terrorist was shot and critically wounded by an armed civilian.
  •  Fatah-run Awdah TV broadcast a music video explicitly calling to murder Israelis all over Israel – “in all their neighborhoods.” The song calls on Palestinians to “drown them in a sea of blood, kill them as you wish.” 
  • Abbas’ Fatah movement posted an uncensored version of the picture of dead terrorist murderer Nashat Melhem lying in a pool of blood. It also praised the killer of three a “Martyr” and congratulated him on its official Facebook page.
  • Fatah’s branch in Bethlehem marked Fatah Day on January 7, 2016 with a parade in the Dheisheh refugee camp featuring masked men brandishing firearms and axes, as well as children armed with mock RPG rockets and suicide belts.
  • A man wearing a kippah was attacked and robbed in Germany in an antisemitic attack by refugees from Syria and Afghanistan on the island of Puttgarden. The victim was a 49 year old French businessman who was pushed to the floor and robbed by the attackers as they yelled “Yahud’ Arabic for Jew. They took his shoulder bag that contained money, a cellphone and other valuables.

Hizb ut-Tahrir

Be it the Daesh, Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hizb ut Tahrir, Al-Qaeda or Al-Sabireen, these vile miscreants are tarred with the same brush; they all hate Jews.

Back to Jew-hate filled Gaza. How many of the western media are writing about Al-Sabireen, the newest terrorist group in the Gaza Strip?

  • “The new Iranian-backed Al-Sabireen was established in wake of tensions between Iran and its two former allies in the Gaza Strip: Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis four years ago, relations between Tehran and Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been strained. […]  Al-Sabireen, whose emblem is identical to that of another Iran proxy, Hezbollah, so far has about 400 followers in the Gaza Strip. Each one receives a monthly salary of $250-$300, while the senior officials of the group get at least $700.”

And what, if any, was the reaction in the western media to Hamas’ spokesman Fawzi Barhoum when he said, “Let me say loud and clear to our people in the West Bank: anyone who has a knife, a club, a weapon, or a car, yet does not use it to run over a Jew…and does not use it to kill dozens of Zionists, does not belong to Palestine.” 

  • A local French politician was been found dead in his apartment with multiple stab wounds. Alain Ghozland, 73, a Republican councillor from Creteil near Paris, which has a large Jewish population. A family member told Metro News that the body showed signs of both stabbing and beating, but police have no leads on the investigation yet.
  • And while much of the western media insist on regurgitating the question, “Why hasn’t Israel lifted the Gaza blockade,” none of them seem to be at all interested in the fact, and I quote: “Since the 2013 Egyptian coup d’état in which president Mohammad Morsi was ousted by General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Egyptian authorities have kept the border crossing almost totally closed. Twenty-two days into 2016, the Rafah border crossing has been closed and Gazans lack supplies of basic goods such as gas and electricity. Currently, the chances of the crossing being reopened are low, given Egypt’s declaration that it will not open it before the fifth anniversary of the 2011 uprising.”

By the way, the fifth anniversary is on Monday, January 25. Watch for plenty of hate, smoke and fire on the day. Know doubt the Jew-haters will find cause to blame any deaths on the Jewish holiday of Tu BiShvat, which also occurs on January 25.

In Canada, where I live, the country where we are in the process of extending a welcome to some 25,000 Syrian refugees of various faiths, we are also not immune to Jew-hate. Here’s what Honest Reporting Canada had to say earlier this week.

“”Writing in the Globe and Mail on December 14, Michael Bell, former Canadian ambassador to Israel and co-director of the Jerusalem Old City Initiative, excused Palestinian terrorism while baselessly charging that a “Judaization” of Jerusalem exists. In truth, Bell’s op-ed was just another example of Palestinian incitement.

“Without substantiation, Bell claimed Israeli “zealots” are attempting to change the Temple Mount’s status quo while seeking the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque, efforts which Bell claimed are prompting Palestinians to commit terrorism.

“Bell claimed: “The spate of frequent and growing knife attacks has been provoked by the perhaps unsurprising misperception that Mr. Netanyahu plans to change the “status quo” step by step, given the pressures he is subject to.””

And in conclusion, in Sweden, the repugnant Israel-bashing Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom continues to make outrageous claims. Recently it was reported “she called on Israel to halt what she called ‘extrajudicial executions’ in response to attacks by knife-wielding Palestinians.” 

We have lost our way. What politician, what member of society, has the will and fortitude to help change it? Depressing, isn’t?
