The local people have always been better able to get along with one another than their leaders will allow. I also remember the days when the Jews and Arabs of E”Y got along very well. The flames of intolerance are fanned by greedy government elitists who have their own agendas…and it doesn’t involve peace or prosperity for the little guy…despite the propaganda. — Ellie Katz

Palestinian Authority Arabs and Jews in Samaria worked together Monday to fight a fire that threatened to wreak irreparable damage at the site of the Biblical era temple at Shiloh.

The presence of Arabs, who risk their lives by even working for Jewish employers despite new Palestinian Authority legislation outlawing the practice, demonstrated the ability of both Jews and Arab to join forces, Shiloh residents said. Among similar joint efforts in the past year, Arabs helped save Jews in eastern Gush Etzion after their vehicle caught on fire. Click here to continue reading….

Israel Cannot Escape the God Issue

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 15, 2010

BS”D

I can’t say it better than Professor Eidelberg —

“Few people understand why Israel, undefeated in war, is withdrawing to her perilous pre-1967 borders.  Let me explain.

Israel has been led by prime ministers whose policy of “land for peace” belies the fact that Israel is engaged in a religious conflict with implacable foes who have said “peace means the destruction of Israel.”

It needs to be stressed that the futile and fatal policy of territory for peace contradicts the Torah—Israel’s raison d’être.  This inane and ignoble policy magnifies Arab (as well as western) contempt for the Jewish state, and encourages Muslim despots to wipe Israel off the map.  Israel cannot avoid or win this war as long as she is led by prime ministers who omit the God of Israel from the domain of statecraft.  Before continuing, let’s review the stages of Israel’s territorial retreat.

Teaching Hatred to Palestinian Children

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 12, 2009

BS”D

Arab/Muslim sanctimony is intriguing. In his wrath, Teheran’s Chief Prosecutor, Sayid Mortazavi  has charged 34 Israeli commanders and 115 soldiers with war crimes, in the wake of Israeli defensive measures against Hamas. The Hague is reviewing. More coverage on the likelihood of this actually amounting to something can be found here. Google is your friend. There are several sites that are reporting on this.

Israel seeks to put a stop to the constant barrage of Qassam, et al., rockets which have been launched from Gaza schools, mosques and hospitals. These rockets have been deliberately directed at Israeli kindergartens and other civilian targets for the last 8 years.

Where is Mortazavi when Hamas TV, Palestinian TV, and Lebanon’s al-Manar TV are all busy airing various “educational” children’s programs’ such as the likeness of Mickey Mouse spewing hateful Islamic supremacist messages via the mouths of babes, Hamasnik rabbits threatening to eat Jews, and otherwise encouraging innocent children into vicious hatred and prejudice, brainwashing these children into valuing themselves only for their potential as human bombs???

Here’s the $64,000 question: Where is Disney?!? The Walt Disney Company is known for jealously guarding any trademarked images, to the point of threatening to sue daycare centers in the US, should they have the temerity to paint murals of Mickey Mouse on their walls without prior permission, possibly including steep licensing fees.

Disney suing Hamas via the Hague. I would follow such a case. Get out the popcorn folks, cause this is going to be more entertaining than an episode of The Three Stooges. (Yeah, I don’t have high regard for Disney either.)

Judge Judy, where are you when we need you??

Getting back to the point, if Mortazavi wants to go that route, I suggest some international law specialist draft charges against Hamas, Hezbollah and any other organization which involve themselves with such activities. Charge them with child abuse related war crimes, and present those to the Hague.

Any organization that can be proven to be actively indoctrinating children to glorify suicide in any form, or that encourages them to become  suicide “martyrs”, or that clearly allows or coerces children into becoming combatants/child soldiers, military couriers or in any other military capacity– should be charged with war crimes.

If any parent can be proven to be encouraging their children to become suicide bombers or to enter in military zones to engage soldiers in any manner, then that parent can be subject to charges of parental incompetence, or child abuse, and can then be vulnerable to loss of said children.

If a parent can be proven to be cooperating with organizations, such as Hamas, Fatah or Hezbollah, that make a practice of using children in their conflicts, or of indoctrinating their children to commit suicide, or to entering into a military conflict when they are minors, then those parents can be subject to the same charges.

If parents feared they would lose their children when abusing them in this manner, we might see a very quick reversal in these activities. I’m sure there are many international law experts capable of drafting sufficiently specific and effective charges to this effect, and introduce them to that bastion of truth and justice, the Hague.

“They forget the usual rules of morality and law.  For example, when a murderer takes a hostage and fires from behind his human shield, and a policeman, in an effort to stop the shooting accidentally kills the hostage, the law of every country holds the hostage taker guilty of murder even though the policeman fired the fatal shot.  The same is true of the law of war.  The use of human shields, in the way Hamas uses the civilian population of Gaza, is a war crime–as is its firing of rockets at Israeli civilians.  Every human shield that is killed by Israeli self defense measures is the responsibility of Hamas, but you wouldn’t know that from watching the media coverage. “ The Hamas War Crime Strategy by Alan Dershowitz

Jihad = Mein Kampf – Part 2

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 8, 2009

BS”D

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke, Irish philosopher, statesman (1729-1797)

In Arabic, “jihad” literally means “self-struggle”. That is the soft definition. Allowing ourselves to become entangled in politically correct ideas and language will disarm us. It will weaken our resolve to defend ourselves and our way of life.

We are meant to think the concept of “jihad’ is solely about an internal, spiritual struggle. No. This is only part of the truth, says Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist in part 3 of this series. He goes on to tell us that “Mein Kampf” also means “my struggle”. He then asks us, what and who was Hitler struggling against? And then we must wonder, who are the jihadis struggling against?

I’ve excerpted some quotes from the video below, entitled “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West”. I have this entire series linked on my “Jihadis” page, at the very bottom. It can also be found, of course, on Youtube.

There is a demonstrable connection between the concept of “jihad”, the Muslim’s struggle against the Jewish people, the West, and all non-Muslims, indeed against all moderate Muslims, and “Mein Kampf”, Hitler’s struggle against the Jewish people and all who refused to submit to his view of things. The filmmakers are showing us how history is repeating itself. By excerpting especially poignant quotes, I hope to make plain that 1936 has arrived. Yesterday is back. Are we going to make the same mistakes?

Mein Kampf is a runaway bestseller in some Muslim controlled regions, such as the Palestinian administered territories.

Obsession: Part 2 of 10

We swear by the blood and severed bodies of our children and torment of our prisoners, and we will reply by blowing our bodies (sic). — Suicide bombers induction ceremony, Lebanon 1996

We need to understand the culture that produced terrorism. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

Some people view the current situation with the Middle East as a clash of civilization. I think it’s more than that, way more than that. I think it’s an outright declaration of war from radical Islam on Western culture, on the Judeo-Christian culture. And…we should know that. It’s a declaration of war. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

…It’s part of a campaign of jihad, holy war to bring down the West, undermine the very foundations of Christianity and Judaism. – Khaled Abu Toameh, Palestinian Journalist

The Islamists hate everything other than what they are themselves. They killed, for example, over 100,000 Algerians who disagreed with their brand of Islam. These are fellow Muslims. — Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum

There is a particular strand of Islam that has, in fact, challenged what I think is the absolutely central pillar of human civilization as such, namely, the sacredness of life itself. — Professor Robert Wistrich, Chair, Sassoon Center for Antisemitism

The most honorable death is by killing. And the most honorable killing and the most glorious martyrdom is when a man is killed for the sake of Allah. — Sheikh Hassah Nasrallah, Hizbollah General Secretary General, Al Manar TV 2005, (Translation MEMRI)

We succeeded with Allah’s grace, to raise an ideological generation that loves death like our enemies love life. — Raed Said Hussein Saad, Al-Qassam Brigades, Commander N. Gaza, Hamas website, December 2005 (translation Palestinian Media Watch)

Most people don’t realize the Muslims are also victims, because if they disagree, they get killed. — Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist

Would some Muslim or some Arab who in his heart believes that the Arab terrorism is terrorism, can he say it in (sic) publicly? He will be lynched in a Muslim society if he says that Hamas is a terrorist (sic). — Tashbih Sayyed, Editor, Pakistan Today

I would estimate that some 10 to 15%, and let me stress that it’s an estimate, of Muslims worldwide support militant Islam. That is not to say that only 10 to 15% are anti-American or anti-Zionist. No, that’s much larger. — Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum

1.2 billions are there with 15% (sic). This is a huge number. This is as big as the united States of America. And the bad thing about it is that they are spread all throughout (sic). — Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist

In the Middle East, Islam is our identity, is our political life, is our social life, it’s our life. As a child I attended Gaza elementary schools and we were taught that jihad is a religious holy war for the sake of Allah. That is what it is…to conquer the world for Allah. That is jihad. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

We must educate our children on the love of jihad for the sake of Allah. And the love of fighting for the sake of Allah. — Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi, Palestinian TV, 2001 (translation by MEMRI)
