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.

 

by Alan Simons

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!

Hizb ut-Tahrir. Ban this terrorist organisation now!

Hizb ut-Tahrir: Antisemitic. Anti-Christian. Pro Pan-Islamist Terrorist Organization. Banned in many Muslim countries, but not in the UK, USA or Canada!

Hizb ut-Tahrir regards itself as a “peaceful pan-Islamist organization.” What complete and utter garbage!

   by Alan Simons

Hizb ut-Tahrir is front and centre of an enthusiastic Islamist bunch of antisemitic, anti-West, anti-Christian, anti-capitalist and anti-democratic educated ideological vicious revolutionists.

I’ve been reporting on this terrorist group for nearly twelve years. To remind my readers and to put it as succinctly as possible: This terrorist organisation wants to conquer the world with its blatant egregious wish to demolish the democratic system of your government and in its place initiate a caliphate in your country. It has been quietly waiting in the shadows for the opportunity to pronounce itself as the foremost trustworthy leader in the Muslim world. Their timing is impeccable. Their aim is clearly defined. I repeat. To establish an Islamic Caliphate or Islamic state in your country and to resume the Islamic way of life for all.

Over the years Hizb ut-Tahrir has matured into a global sophisticated organisation that maintains the illusion, to ignorant Westerners, that they have an interest in reaching its goals of a caliphate peacefully and through non-violent means.  Poppycock! They believe the establishment of the caliphate would provide stability and security. This forms part of their primary objective.

 Hizb ut-Tahrir YouTube video

By last count, Hizb ut-Tahrir is operating in more than 50 countries worldwide including the USA, Canada and the UK. Australia has been pussyfooting to ban the organisation for years. However, HuT is “banned in many Muslim-majority countriesincluding Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. In Malaysia, the Selangor Fatwa Committee  has outlawed Hizb ut-Tahrir, declaring the group ‘deviant.’   

Recently the Indonesian government, the most populous Muslim country in the world, revoked Hizb ut-Tahrir’s charter, “citing incompatibility with government regulations extremism and national ideology.” Needless to say, Hizb ut-Tahrir is currently fighting Indonesia’s revocation with the same vigour as they do in expressing their hatred of Jews. And boy, do they hate Jews!

In the UK, the group’s so-called world ‘nerve-centre’ headquarters, Hizb ut-Tahrir, according to The Times“has relocated to the Sparkhill area of Birmingham, which has been home to several convicted terrorists, including the UK’s first al-Qaeda inspired terrorist. The Times adds, it has now set its sights on Birmingham’s inner-city youth and “has launched a recruitment drive in an inner-city neighbourhood that is linked to more homegrown terrorists than anywhere else in the UK.

“Campaign materials for its youth roadshow, launched in July, make no mention of the group’s name and do not feature its usual logo of the Islamic state flag. They instead aim to present the group, which two prime ministers considered banning, as an innocuous community organisation.”

The Daily Mail went one step further. Last week in an article they reported Hizb ut-Tahrir, “is using children as young as 13 to peddle books supporting suicide bombing and jihad in Britain.”

They added: “An undercover reporter who attended a number of the meetings was sold books suggesting suicide strikes are acceptable, and others saying jihad was ‘compulsory’ to spread the message of Islam.

“The group allowed a 13-year-old to sell pamphlets comparing Westerners to animals over their ‘filthy promiscuity’ and urging followers to shun British culture.

“The reporter also saw children as young as ten bowing their heads in prayer and reading from the Koran at meetings – despite Hizb ut-Tahrir’s claim only over-16s can ‘engage’ in its work.”

In addition, The Daily Mail research found:

  • A member boasted of having active recruiters at universities including Oxford, University College London and the School of Oriental and African Studies – despite the group being banned from speaking on campuses;
  • A separate Hizb ut-Tahrir speaker said ‘we need to try to change’ homosexuals;
  • Devotees are warned that women will be punished for leaving home ‘uncovered’;
  • Followers, who believe ‘jihad’ should be waged against Israel, back Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for ‘saying it how it is’ amid the party’s anti-Semitism crisis.

None of this surprises me. It was in 2009 that I found Hizb ut-Tahrir showed its antisemitic hand. To quote from -18th Shawwal, 1430 A.H. Hizb ut-Tahrir. October 6, 2009.

  •         “Al-Quds [Jerusalem] cannot be liberated by resorting to protests and sit-in… it can only be restored by mobilizing armed forces to eliminate the Jewish entity!
  •         “That way is to mobilize the Muslim armies and bring together all able-bodied Muslims to eliminate the Jewish entity from its roots and only then will the al-Aqsa be liberated and cleared of the scum and evil of the Jews and their offsprings….
  •       “The way is to regard the entire Palestine as one right from the banks of the river in the east to the sea in the west, without differentiating the lands occupied in 1948 or in 1967; whoever relinquishes even one part of the land, actually facilitates surrender of part after part, whoever displays weakness, humiliation is his destiny…” 

Two years earlier, in 2007, BBCs Panorama took this organisation to task.  A former British supporter, referring to Hizb ut-Tahrir, stated, “They always promoted hatred, they promote hostility…”

Let us hope Sara Khan, chief of the British Government’s newly created Commission for Countering Extremism, as well as her equivalent colleagues in the USA and in Canada, will respond effectively and ban this abhorrent terrorist group now!

Splenetic small-minded antisemite bigots of this world. We have your number!

“Let’s stop pussyfooting with terminology and call a spade a spade. The vile photo above published by a BDS group shows a hatred of all Jews and everything that is decent. It is time for ordinary Jews everywhere to raise their voices and cease being on the sidelines expecting others to do the work for them. 14 million Jews can and must make a difference. The clock is ticking”

For the past twelve years, jewishinfoNews has done its best to live up to its mission statement which consists simply of two sentences. “To foster democratic participation for the achievement of peace and security between Jews and non-Jews by the free flow of information and knowledge, and to advance understanding, acceptance and solidarity between all people.” And secondly, “To reject intolerance, antisemitism/virulent Judeophobia, hate, Islamophobia, ethnocentric violence and conflict through dialogue and negotiation among individuals.” 

Nelson Mandela in his book  Long Walk to Freedom, said: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” 

Unfortunately, over the past twelve years of publishing jewishinfoNews, and especially over the past two years, I have seen a diminishing amount of love and in its place more diatribe than I ever imagined possible. Sadly, we no longer live in Nelson Mandela’s world, a world where hate and love can be used with such simplicity in the same sentence. And sadly, I’ve started to question the validity of our mission statement.

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.  And it is of no surprise, we find that one of their former journalists, a rabid Israel hater, is currently the British Labour Party’s Executive Director of Strategy and Communications under Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition.

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. 

Which brings me to today. When the former UK and Commonwealth chief rabbi, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks warns of ‘existential threat’ to British Jews by the likes of Corbyn and his followers, we must not only listen but act.

To quote: “Britain’s former chief rabbi has doubled down on his scathing criticism of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, warning that Jewish people are thinking about leaving the United Kingdom because of the ‘existential threat’ of anti-Semitism. Jonathan Sacks told the BBC in an interview broadcast Sunday that for the first time in the 362 years Jews have lived in Britain, many question whether it is safe to raise children there.”

When Stephen Harper the former Prime Minister of Canada and Nobel Laureate Lord Trimble jointly publish in Britain’s The Telegraph this past week a blistering attack on the rise of antisemitism across Europe and with particular reference to Jeremy Corbyn, we must not only listen but act.

It was only a few years ago that the American Jewish newspaper, the Algemeiner, published an article about the lead photo featured above. The paper pointed out:

A Facebook page supporting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on Wednesday uploaded a Photoshop image of Nazi concentration camp prisoners holding anti-Israel signs. The picture, posted by a page named “I Acknowledge Apartheid Exists”, shows skeletal survivors holding up signs that read “Israel Assassins,” “Break the Silence on Gaza,” “Stop the Holocaust in Gaza” and “Stop US Aid to Israel.” A sign in the far back of the image says Gaza is “the world’s biggest concentration camp,” while another poster shows a Palestinian flag along with the words “Free Palestine.” A slogan at the bottom of the offensive image reads, “Whatever happened to ‘Never again?’”

“Non-Jews do not want to hear our complaints. They want to know our solutions.”

 Perhaps we should turn to Frank Luntz. For many years now, this US-based political and business pollster has been telling us that, “the Jewish community is often torn between those urging private pressure and those preferring to express public outrage. Matters are complicated by traditional territoriality among Jewish community groups and occasional splits between the local Jewish community and Israel.” He adds, “It does not matter what you say. What matters is what people hear.

“The hardest lesson for the Jewish community to grasp is that the best communication is education – and you have to listen before you can teach.”

The hardest lesson for the Jewish community to grasp is that the best communication is education – and you have to listen before you can teach. The reflexive, accusational approach, accusing opponents of antisemitism, may make us feel better, but it does not capture hearts or change minds. A more positive, aspirational approach, “build bridges, not boycotts”, is almost always more effective. Non-Jews do not want to hear our complaints. They want to know our solutions.”

Yet for the vast majority of Jews, we must understand right now that we need to urgently invest in leaders who are young enough to lead the next generation into battle. Young and articulate leaders, who speak, not the language of Mandela, not my language, and not, with no disrespect intended, the language of our dear Holocaust survivors, but the language of today. And in this respect, there are far too few young Jewish leaders able to rise up to the challenge.

As Luntz has said, “Greenpeace does not wait for the next oil spill or seal hunt. The Jewish community should not and cannot wait for the next bombing or boycott.” The time to organise is now! The clock is ticking.

“Never again!” for many Jews today seems to be just a dream fading into obscurity.

Shanah Tovah Umetukah. May you have a good and sweet year.
