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.

The UN’s pathological obsession with Israel

UN: anti-Israel obsession

The UN Commission on the Status of Women is going after the Jewish state

by Oudy Ch. Bloch

Oudy Ch Bloch FThere is something pathetic and indecent in the pathological obsession with the UN to Israel. Especially in matters of women’s rights, other countries merit special attention, particularly in the Muslim world.

In 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted 20 resolutions against Israel against only three resolutions on the world namely, Syria, Iran and North Korea. Nothing on China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan and all other progressive democracies.That’s how the United Nations level put Israel. It is grotesque but true.

And 2016 clearly does not bring big changes. In its latest report, the Commission on the Status of Women of the United Nations (CSW) has again managed the feat of condemning Israel, of course. Which, on reflection, is not really a feat since the same commission made a similar report last year.

The Jewish state is, this time, abused for its alleged violence against Palestinian women. For CSW indeed  “the Israeli occupation remains the main obstacle to the improvement of Palestinian women, to their promotion, to their empowerment and participation in the development of their society.”

Regrettably, the CSW did not hear the Palestinian activist Ahlam Akram who believes that the laws on the status of Arab women are “back to the stone age” and that Arab countries do virtually nothing to improve the status of women, because they are busy with “the great campaign against Israel.”

JIN woman lashed photo April 18 2016Regrettably, the CSW was not informed that, according to Islamic law widely applied by the Palestinian Authority (West Bank) and Hamas (in Gaza), women are discriminated against by the laws governing marriage, divorce, child custody, inheritance and domestic violence, men and women do not have equal access to justice, women do not have the same value as witnesses in court.

Regrettably, the CSW did not take into account the Palestinian Center for Human Rights report which says that the recurrence of killings of women is due to the relative impunity “given to men at honor crimes” (murder of women by their own families for having extramarital relations) in an ultra-patriarchal society in which women are considered the property of his family which directs the social, sexual and professional.

Regrettably, the CSW will be not be interested in Hamas that forbids women to leave without being covered, participate in sporting events such as the marathon Gaza canceled by UNRWA in 2013 for that reason, to get on a motorcycle or cycling, hookah smoking in public, to participate in folk dances, which forces girls in schools and universities to wear the headscarf, forcing women to go out accompanied by male relatives … all in the name of a campaign of “Promotion of Virtue” reasons, according to Hamas officials by “the alarming increase of amoral behavior”.

Regrettably, the CSW does not consider this fact as an “obstacle to improving the status of Palestinian women, to their promotion, to their empowerment and participation in the development of their society.”

This is invariably the same. By voting this conviction, the CSW maintains the Palestinians in their illusion are never responsible for anything, especially not for themselves and allows them to use a forum for women’s rights as an anti-Israel forum .

There is, in this pathological obsession with Israel, something at once pathetic and indecent. Especially in matters of women’s rights, other countries deserve special attention.

Stoning of women Iran a

Nothing. Not one condemnation of the condition of women in Iran where:

– Women cannot travel, work or attend classes at the university without permission from their husbands;

– Women cannot judge, because – according to the mullahs – they do not possess intellectual faculties;

– The law permits a father to marry his adopted daughter from the age of 13 years.

Nothing about Saudi Arabia where:

– Women are considered legally a minor and therefore cannot go to the doctor, opening a bank account, travel, renew their passports without the permission of her guardian;

– The women has no right to drive;

Nothing on Sudan where:

– Sudanese journalist Lubna Ahmad Al-Hussein escaped at the point of death, sentenced to forty lashes for wearing fashionable trousers for women, prohibited by Article 152 of the Criminal Code;

Nothing on India where:

– In many villages, even today, girls are killed at birth, mainly because the marriage dowry is expensive;

– Domestic violence affects 65% of women;

– Widows are ostracized by society, abandoned and rejected because they would bear misfortune;

Nothing on Egypt, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Ethiopia, Yemen and other countries where FGM is practiced. In half of the 29 countries that practice FGM, the majority of the girls suffered before the age of 5 years and in the vast majority of the remaining cases, 15 years. The goal is to prevent sexual desire and avoid premarital relations.

Nothing on countries where Sharia law is applied, the Sharia that permits polygamy but not polyandry, which forbids women to divorce but allows a man to divorce, which requires women – to prove it raped – the testimony of four men, allowing her husband to beat her, that makes a woman be inherently inferior to man (Sura 4:34).

Nothing on the manifest “Women and the Islamic State,” written by Daesh and precise in accordance with Sharia, that marriage of girls is permitted from the age of 9 years, that women’s education should limited to the prophet’s life, the history of Islam, Sharia but also the sewing and cooking, they are not supposed to work for not to leave their homes.

Nothing on the young Samra Kesinovic, the 17 year old Austrian who had run away from home in 2014 to wage jihad in Syria, was beaten to death with a hammer after being used as a sex slave for new fighters of Daesh.

The work of the UN Commission on the Status of Women is an insult to all women worldwide. Violence, humiliation and discrimination. The UN has lost credibility once more.
