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.”

Antisemitism. Hand-in-hand. Britain’s media and the Labour Party

“It is really no surprise that, in a media world that has been so compromised by an invasion of political partisans and inarticulate airheads with communications degrees, a fake journalist can seem more trustworthy than the real thing.”  -David Horsey

 

Many years ago in the UK, I worked for The Guardian. I have to admit I didn’t work in the editorial department, but I had day-to-day contact with many of the paper’s internationally respected columnists and journalists. I even had to pay for the occasional round of drinks at the pub around the corner from the office.

by Alan Simons

Unlike now, the editorial staff were media icons in their own right. Mark Arnold-Forster, Clare Hollingworth, Victor Zorza, John Cole, Mary Stott, Norman Shrapnel, and of course Alistair Cooke in the USA, to name just a few.

Editors of the past such as Alistair Hetherington, who even now continues to be regarded as one of the leading editors of the second half of the twentieth century, and Peter Preston both strove to present a balanced view.

Since then the paper has steadily spiraled downward to its current biased anti-Israel position.  As Greville Janner, the former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has stated, the paper is “viciously and notoriously anti-Israel.”

It may surprise some readers to learn that C. P. Scott, one of the most famous editors of The Guardian had a strong friendship with Chaim Weizmann. It is believed their friendship played a role in the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

In 1948, The Guardian was a supporter of the new State of Israel.

With Alistair Hetherington at the helm, The Guardian‘s sympathetic view of Israel continued, as illustrated in their Leader of Monday, June 12, 1967:

“Future security is their first concern. They will not give up the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank of the Jordan, or the heights overlooking the upper Jordan valley until they know what the Arabs will accept. If there is no peace settlement, will they ever give them up?

“Israel wishes to live in peace. She does not want hostile neighbours on her borders, whoever they are, for another hundred or two hundred years. She wants normal trading relations with her neighbours. The offer of generous terms is therefore still worth trying – especially if, through the United Nations and all the Great Powers, Israel’s future frontiers are effectively guaranteed.”

And in 2002 in a Leader which in part said:

“The Jewish community is right to fear that the repulsive antisemitism… in many Arab countries… can find an alarming echo within some British Muslim communities.”

But, sadly that was The Guardian of the past. Jump ahead to 2014.

Two years ago, The Guardian broke all barriers in stoking the fire of antisemitism with a hateful speech by their associate editor, Seumas Milne.

Prior to working for The Guardian, Milne was the business manager of Straight Left, a monthly publication which followed the manifesto of the Communist Party of Great Britain.

Milne, as reported by CiF Watch said:  “In front of tens of thousands of anti-Israel protesters at Hyde Park in London, explicitly justified Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis (a refrain from his Guardian column in mid-July), and accused ‘terrorist’ Israel of  ‘industrial scale’ killing in Gaza.” A link to a video where Milne shows his true self can be seen at the end of this article.

And there’s more!

Presently, I understand Milne is on leave from The Guardian. On October 2015 he was appointed – oh what a surprise – the Labour Party’s Executive Director of Strategy and Communications, which no doubt has something to say about the British Labour Party and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn’s repulsive passage into the murky territory of promoting antisemitism. 

As the Daily Mail succinctly put it this past April 1:

“Antisemitism at the heart of Corbyn’s Labour Party: Devastating dossier exposes how extensive anti-Jewish bigotry is in Labour and poses profoundly troubling questions…”

To quote Tarek Fatah, the Canadian writer, broadcaster and secular Muslim activist: “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.”

In response, I say to Seumas Milne, The Guardians of this world and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, “Do hurry up and devour yourself. Clearly, my people haven’t got all day. It’s nearly Passover!”

SEVENTY YEARS LATER -

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

Exclusive: Part II. An interview with Mahmoud Abbas.

“Today Gaza, tomorrow Jerusalem.”– Mahmoud Abbas

jewishinfoNews on Skype over a two day period interviewed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Here is the final part of the interview. The first part was published on October 17, 2015. 

jewishinfoNews: Mr. President, let’s continue talking about the violence in Jerusalem and other Israeli cities. Prime Minister Netanyahu said yesterday morning in a speech at the 37th World Jewish Congress that the Israelis “are not only fighting a campaign of physical assault on the Jewish State … it is always proceeded and accompanied by an assault on the truth, a campaign of defamation and slander.”

Abbas: Well that is his opinion, isn’t!  Just refer to what I said at my recent speech at the UN. Specifically, I stated that “Israel is scheming to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque.” I called “on the Israeli government, before it is too late, to cease its use of brutal force to impose its plans to undermine the Islamic and Christian sanctuaries in Jerusalem. Unless Israel stops its scheme and its actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the conflict will change from political to religious, creating an explosive situation in Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territory.”

jewishinfoNews: Yes, indeed. Netanyahu mentioned it in his speech when he referred to Israel wanting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque as one of the ten big lies. He said, and I quote, “the only way you can fight lies and especially big lies is to puncture them with the simple truth.” He said that Israel is not seeking to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He added, “This is particularly farcical. It would be farcical if it wasn’t tragic. Israel is the only country that protects the holy sites in the Middle East.  You see the Muslims, the militant Shiites and militant Sunnis blowing each other’s mosques to smithereens… churches, of course, synagogues… ancient sites of great world heritage blown up. The only place where the holy shrines of all are absolutely guaranteed is in Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty and of in the rest of Israel.”

King AbbasAbbas: Cleans his glasses and doesn’t respond.

jewishinfoNews: Mr. President, moving on. Yesterday, The Times of Israel published a report that stated, “A series of videos glorifying the wave of deadly stabbing attacks against Israelis was released Sunday by the Islamic State terrorist group.  The videos, bearing such titles as Abbas JIN October 20 2015 bProject Behead the Jews and Message to the Mujahedin in Jerusalem, were uploaded from sites under Islamic State control in Syria and northern Iraq. Some of the videos spread on social media and were accompanied by the hashtag #BeheadtheJew.”

And a few days ago a picture and text tweeted from a Fatah Twitter account on Oct. 11, 2015 of young Palestinian school girls with yellow Fatah headbands holding a placard with the text: “The settlers are Israeli ISIS”. In addition, in a Abbas JIN October 20 2015 ccartoon published on the website of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission, Israel is portrayed as an Islamic State executioner dressed in black with a Star of David on his hood and the text “Judaization” across his robe. The executioner is swinging an axe, about to decapitate a Palestinian whose head is the Dome of the Rock. The Palestinian is resting his head on a sleeping chopping block labeled “the international disregard.”

Mr. President, one minute ISIS is telling you to behead the Jews and the next moment Fatah is portraying Israelis as an Islamic State executioner. Which one is it to be? Don’t you think this is utterly bizarre and definitely confusing to your people? If these issues weren’t as grave as they are, all of this might remind us of the comedy routine made famous by Abbott and Costello, “Who’s on First?” Is this democracy? Will you be happy with the diminished international support you might receive because of it?

Abbas: “The international community should support the Palestinian people and continue its aid in all forms, and not punish them or starve them because of their democratic choices. This is happening at a time when the Palestinian Authority is trying to preserve the period of calm and abide by agreements reached with Israel…  Israel is seeking to escalate tensions and explode the situation to avoid fulfilling its commitments.

“If the settlement activities in Palestinian land and construction of the so-called separation wall on confiscated Palestinian land continue, we might soon find ourselves at a situation where the foundation of peace, a free Palestine state living side by side in peace and security in Israel, is a factual impossibility.”

jewishinfoNews: Mr. President, you once said, and I quote, “We will not allow the state of lawlessness, the disorder of weapons, taking law into one’s hands, kidnapping and attacks on government institutions and state land to continue. . . .No one is above the law.”

Abbas: However, I’ll repeat again, “The international community should support the Palestinian people and continue its aid in all forms, and not punish them or starve them because of their democratic choices.”

jewishinfoNews: What democratic choices are you referring to Mr. President? It’s been said that “the biggest danger is that this act of defiance by your children against the PA will turn into a tsunami that will undermine Mahmoud Abbas and the PA in its present format.”

Mr. President, Canadian Tarek Fatah once said, I quote: “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.” With your youth running amok, out of control, with pure hate in their eyes and it seems assisting in undermining your leadership, when they’re exhausted with the Israelis, are you afraid your children will turn on you Mr. President?

Abbas: “It is high time that the Palestinian people restore their freedom and independence. It is high time that the decades, the long decades of suffering and pain would stop.”

jewishinfoNews: But Mr. President, your youth are running amok, out of control, with pure hate in their eyes, taking the law into their own hands, killing and maiming Jewish children, mothers and fathers, in fact any one in their way be it Jew or Christian. 

Abbas: Stares ahead.

jewishinfoNews: This past May, Ambassador Uri Savir, who has spent his professional life on the strategies of peacemaking in Israel, he established the Peres Center for Peace and is currently the Center’s honorary president said in an article published in al-Monitor, he foresaw what was going to happen. He said: “Jerusalem is at the heart of the Palestinian national struggle for its historical and religious significance in Islam. East Jerusalem is also the only territory occupied in 1967 that was annexed by Israel (except for the Golan Heights). The Palestinians often claim that Israel is attempting to turn the Temple Mount (or Haram al-Sharif) Jewish; it’s a misplaced fear but widely believed. Therefore one can expect that, should an uprising (intifada) break out in the West Bank, it would have Jerusalem as a central theme, especially Al-Aqsa Mosque, which may also become the central battleground.”

It was just over one week ago that Palestinian Media Watch said that while Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, “professes the PA’s alleged wish for peace,” his “own Fatah movement is busy glorifying murder as ‘a symphony of love for Jerusalem.’”

To quote the Fatah Twitter account, “A symphony of love for Jerusalem. If the occupation wants to hear it again and again, it should continue invading Jerusalem, attacking our noble women and desecrating our Noble Sanctuary [the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza] and our Jerusalem.” [Fatah Twitter account, Oct. 12, 2015.]

Abbas: Remains silent.

jewishinfoNews: CNN has quoted you in the past as saying, “Peace and security will never be achieved unless there is an end to the Israeli occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, I hereby call on you, Palestinian people wherever you are, to stand together, to close ranks and be alert, to be aware of the Israeli plots to undermine our national mission.” Mr. President, this sounds very much like a call to arms.

Abbas: “The current situation in the Palestinian territories cannot continue, there is no longer a partner for us in Israel and there is nothing for us but to internationalize the issue.

jewishinfoNews: You mean by restoring your people’s freedom and independence you’re wantonly allowing your children to kill Jews? Is that what it’s all about, Mr. President? Is this your way out? Your final hurrah? Finally you see this as personal satisfaction in getting your revenge against Obama and Clinton?
