The stench of hate, pure evil and foul disease continues in Gaza unabated.

OPINION: Part II | Alan Simons

This article has been updated from a previous version.

This weeks’ abhorrent theatre by Gazans in their attempt to lure and kill Israeli kindergarten children, see above photo, coupled with Gaza’s list of mediocre actors performing on the world stage and screaming to get attention, smells worse than a dozen rotten eggs and burning tires floating on a polluted lake.
Gazans, over the years, have had every opportunity to join the civilized world. Unfortunately, led by a bunch of deluded psychopaths, they continue to utterly fail.

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.

According to UK Media Watch, “Palestinians in Gaza today launched an incendiary device into Israel using Minnie Mouse as bait, in order to lure children. (Per i24NEWS English)

“It landed in an Israeli kindergarten near the border, but, luckily, it was retrieved and neutralised before anyone was hurt.”

For the most part, I have attempted to keep out of writing about much of the hate and intolerance that emanates from Gaza. One can never 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 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. Today, in the Gaza Strip, the obsessive devotion to killing 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. I am sure they fear they will lose their accreditation and thus their ability of, dare I say it, of reporting with ‘impartiality’ in this godforsaken strip of land.

Tarek Fatah, the well-known and respected Canadian writer, 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 we take Fatah seriously and look at this strip of land as a lost cause. After all, none of the region’s Arabs, want anything to do with it, unless it is to incite Gazans to kill as many Jews as possible.

“Gaza? The stench of hate, pure evil and foul disease continues unabated.”

Killing Jews also strikes a euphoric chord with today’s 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, or saving the lives of many of Gaza’s children brought to hospitals in Israel.

Over the years I have seen groups of splenetic small-minded antisemitic bigots of this world, from both the far-left and the far-right, become more adventurous in their misguided fantasy that we Jews are weak, pathetic individuals, without any backbone. Oh, are they misguided! The Gazans haven’t quite figured that one out!

Yes, there was a special time when those living in the West on the left of the political spectrum came to the defence of us Jews. After all, then we were weak thriving to earn a day-to-day humble living. Those days have far gone! Now, many of the current generations of left-wingers thrive on seeing us as target practice against their new-found friends, the weak and maladjusted living in Gaza.

“Let my people go,” has become the rallying point for many of these demented souls espousing the plight of Gaza’s people caused, in their belief, by Israel and its people and for that matter all Jews.

Over the years we 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, but now in the forefront of stoking the fires of antisemitism and hate.

Over the years we 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.

“Gaza? The stench of hate, pure evil and foul disease continues unabated.”

 

We have seen both young and old, male and female Israelis murdered, we have seen components of the British Labour Party outwardly show their vindictiveness towards British Jews.

We have seen Jews and Muslims come together in an honest attempt to resolve their differences, that is, as long as the name Israel, for the Muslim, isn’t mentioned by the Jews.

Last year, we saw Gazan psychopaths again taking to the streets 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 mentality. It is not mine or yours. To partially quote Tarek Fatah, “Let them devour themselves.”

Gazans, over the years, have had every opportunity to join the civilized world. Unfortunately, led by a bunch of deluded psychopaths, they have utterly failed. It is they who have failed. We must not carry any guilt for their actions.  If they wish to be devoured, it is their choice and their choice alone!

Clamouring to celebrate the daily antisemitic claptrap and hate mongering diatribe against Israel and all Jews, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Hamas continues to threaten Israel with an abhorrence selection of vile and psychotic disorders that must have dead Nazis applauding in their graves.

Gaza’s Hamas: A bunch of failed deluded theatrical psychopaths.

Dr Martin Sherman is the founder and CEO of the Israel Institute for Strategic Studies.  In an interview he gave on May 29, 2018, on Israel’s ILTV he said:

“The only solution to Gaza is not reconstruction but deconstruction… Because of the nature of the society in Gaza, this will go on and on and in the end, to put it bluntly, there will either be a large Arab population in Gaza or Jews in the Negev. But, there won’t be both over time.”

The interviewer remarked that out of roughly two million Gazans who are living in the Strip, not all of them are in Hamas’ pockets, to which Sherman replied:

“We should stop considering Palestinians as prospective peace partners and relate them as they relate to themselves, as implacable enemies and treat them as such. In the Second World War, not all the Germans were bad people, but when you have a class of collectives you must decide which collective you want to win, yours or theirs. And if you’re willing to sacrifice your individual, your collective rights for their individual rights, you’re going to lose.”

A theatre of violence

For now, one might look at it in the same way as a long-running theatre performance. Every full-house performance has a standing ovation for violent acts, which Jews of the diaspora are befuddled in how one should respond.

This past weeks’ abhorrent theatre by Gazans with their list of mediocre actors performing on the world stage and screaming to get attention, smells worse than a dozen rotten eggs and burning tires floating on a polluted lake.

It is a repetitive theatre, encouraged and thoroughly enjoyed by antisemites, the hate-mongers of this world, the Palestinian flag-waving members of the British Labour Party, as well as Nazi extremists in many countries clamouring to outdo each other.

Are Martin Sherman’s comments accurate? Should one treat Gazans as they relate to themselves, as ruthless enemies? Will Jews of the diaspora understand, placating one’s enemies will not help Gazans discover their humanity?

For Gazans, discovering humanity will mean they first have to lose face. And culturally, that’s no easy task!

So be it!

Hell. The worst place in hell!

 

“It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.” –  T. S. Eliot.

 

by Alan Simons

Avrum Rosensweig has passion. He is the founder and President of Ve’ahavta, Canada’s only national Jewish organization dedicated to humanitarian aid and relief in Canada and abroad.

This weekend his passion about how Syria is treating its children exceeded itself in an ardent statement he made on his Facebook site. It stems in part from an article written by Angela Dewan of CNN. Dewan writes: “The United Nations has verified 7,000 cases of children either killed or maimed in Syria’s seven-year war, but says unverified reports puts the number ‘way beyond 20,000.’”

She adds: “This year has been particularly woeful for Syria’s children as violations against them rise significantly, according to a UN monitoring body, which has verified more than 1,200 such violations, including the deaths or injury of more than 600 children.” To which Rosensweig responded:

Hell. The worst place in hell that equals Syria. According to this report, 7,000 children are dead because of the war there. However informal reports reflect a number closer to 20,000. Hell!!!

And when you read this article you’ll be absolutely astonished at what these armies did to children. Hell!!!

I want to incinerate those responsible for harming and murdering children. Kick them off the edge of a cliff one after the other. Animals. Absolute vicious animals with no will for humanity, no caring for life. And the UN remains silent. And the Arab nations remain quiet. And the “great” powers are complicit.

Hell.

I don’t know about God’s creations sometimes. Just don’t know. Yes, people are responsible but a god fearing person cannot leave the divine out of the equation. To do so would mean God is only responsible for good as in “thank God”.

How could that be? Hell. Hell. Hell. On our watch. As we watch. We too are responsible and cannot hide from this barbarism which happens during our lifetime. Hell!!!! All we can say right now is I’m sorry we did nothing for you children who died.

At least we can pray for the perpetrators to go to hell.

To return to Dewan’s article: “The UN Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MRM) team has continued to work on verifying violations against children in the war since 2013, when the Syrian government was accused of killing and maiming children, and attacking schools and hospitals…. The team verifies six violations, namely the recruitment and use of children by parties in the conflict, killing and maiming, rape and other forms of sexual violence, attacks on hospitals and schools, abductions, and denial of humanitarian access.”

Virginia Gamba is the United Nations Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict. Dewan quotes Gamba in her article:

“Every year since then, there has been a tremendous increase in all grave violations committed by all parties to the conflict,” Gamba said.

“Most of the recruitment of children was committed by non-state groups, while most killing and maiming was attributable to the Syrian government and pro-government forces.

“In the first three months of this year, there was an increase of 25% in recruitment and use of children, and of 348% in killing and maiming, compared with the previous three months.”

Gamba then goes on to make an absurd and passionless statement: “It is time for the children of Syria to believe in their own future and to learn what peace means. It is time for them to retake the childhood that was taken away from them,”

Madam Gamba. Can you please explain to all of us how you might suggest the children of Syria who have been maimed, raped and have experienced other forms of sexual violence, have been abducted and denied humanitarian access, been shot at, as well as seen their parents and siblings killed in front of them, start to believe in their own future and learn what peace means?

Antisemitism! The abhorrent display of pathological hatred of Jews continues.

This article has been updated from the original version.

The American writer Eric Hoffer once said, “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life.”

by Alan Simons

Saadia Gaon, (Sa’id ‘ibn Yusuf al-Fayyûmî) the great ninth-century Jewish philosopher born in Egypt and father of both scientific biblical exegesis and Jewish philosophic theology, who is regarded as the chief Jewish legal authority of his time in the world, commented that whoever is consumed by the desire for revenge gets into a frame of mind of refusing to accept intercession or entertaining any feeling of compassion or pity or listening to any plea of clemency.

Hatred and Revenge. Over one thousand years later Saadia’s comments still reflect the attitude that we have learnt nothing. For very little at this time seems to be based on the two-way acceptance of my world is also your world.

Today, among the lives of many people in America there are some who maintain that the best thing to strive for in their world is to take revenge on one’s enemies. Right now the satisfaction of the thirst for revenge cannot be clearer than it is in our society!

Today, we gloat over people’s misfortunes, we instil a hatred in each other’s cultures and religions that no civilized government has a hope in hell, or will in stopping. It is a hate that has its own direction, its own time and space, egged on by the perverse nature of fanatics utilizing the services of mobile phones, social media and Internet websites. Nor, one must not forget, the antisemitic actions of numerous religious leaders.

Today, the traditional western media broadcaster and newspaper, continue to flout their flag-waving old-boy school-tie elitists’ defiance to remain in a bygone era, in what they believe is their absolute right to express their view to us of what freedom of speech is. They must also accept responsibility for continuing to light the matches of religious hate.

hate (2)Today, what media has the moral fibre to acknowledge that the hatred of Jews is not primarily caused by the Middle East conflict, nor by actions taken by the Trumps of this world, but by the age-old belief of their Jew-hating forbearers across the globe, that Jews are a conspiracy for evil in the world? The Middle East conflict is the result, not the cause, of this appalling hatred of Jews.

Today, it is terrifying, not least because of the attitude of our society, which far from springing to the defence of Jews against inexcusable bigotry and mortal threat, is either indifferent to it or actually shares the prejudice and points a finger at our Israeli brethren for causing the threat.

Today, the non-Jew, in general, not only remains an indifferent individual towards their Jewish brothers and sisters but also to many other sectors of our society. Be it the Yazidis, the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar, The Yemeni catastrophe, the children of southern Syria, and may I say it, the unspeakable and ongoing persecution in Arab lands of Lebanese, Iraqi and Syrian Palestinians. Canada’s smug and self-satisfying image of tolerance to outsiders, compared to how it has treated its First Nations people, has been well documented and continues to be so.

Today, we make direct comparisons to what apartheid South Africa was and that of Israeli Jews and their Israeli Arab cousins. Insinuations about links between Jews and the Nazis abound daily.  

Today, we have observed what Beijing has called the “biggest [USA-China] trade war in economic history.” At a particular juncture, how many hours will pass before countless non-Jews express their abhorrent display of pathological hatred of Jews by accusing the Jew of having a hand in this trade war, just to make a profit?

In 1762, J.J. Rousseau, the 18th century French philosopher said, “The Jews in Dispersion have not the possibility of proclaiming their own truth to humankind; but I believe that when they once have a free Commonwealth, with schools and universities of their own where they can speak out safely, we shall be able to learn what it is that the Jewish people have to say to us.”

Today, in 2018, 256 years later, yes Jews have one thing to say. “We want frickin peace!”
