Why anti Zionism is Anti Semitism

Posted by avideditor on October 25, 2009

Martin Luther King explained it. But so does this blog

In a clear demonstration of just how “progressive” they really are, the Anti-Israel left is hard at working trying to revive the medieval blood libel. First the Swedish daily Aftonbladet repeated Palestinian Arab propaganda about medically impossible organ thefts, and then the left wing Counterpunch magazine run by Saddam supporter Alexander Cockburn printed an article actually using medieval blood libels against Jews as proof. There is something striking about an Anti-Semitic radicalization on the left so extreme that after being accused of using organ thefts as a modern day blood libel, it actually tries to revive and legitimize medieval blood libels.  Read the rest of this entry »

Successor to the Nazis

No difference between the UN and the PLO.

On November 7, 1975, the United Nations endowed the PLO with observer status in the General Assembly. Three days later, the Assembly adopted Resolution 3379 which states that “Zionism is Racism.” A profound and deadly irony underlies these resolutions.

Recall that the UN was created in 1945 as a reaction to Nazism, which had precipitated World War II and the
That resolution was a tacit declaration of war against Israel and the Jewish people.
Holocaust. However, in 1975, when the PLO was entrenched in the General Assembly, it became the successor to the Nazis. That resolution was a tacit declaration of war against Israel and the Jewish people. The UN opened its doors to the PLO and thereby legitimized a worldwide terrorist organization committed to Israel’s destruction.

The PLO should be viewed as the spearhead of the UN. It was only after the PLO was given observer status that one proposed resolution after another, hitherto quashed, was passed condemning Israel and questioning its legitimacy. Since the Arabs could not defeat Israel on the battlefield, they used the PLO and its presence in the UN to defame and destroy the “Zionist entity”.

The balance of power in the UN’s Human Rights Council is held by the Organization of the Islamic Conference – a consortium of despotic Islamic regimes that contradicts the UN Charter. The OIC, Alex Grobman points out, “adamantly maintains that the definition of terrorism never include ‘armed struggle for liberation and self-determination,’ so that when Arab terrorists blow up Jewish men, women and children in synagogues, cafes, shopping malls, pizza ships, buses, and discotheques, it is acceptable and justifiable.”

When Oriana Fallaci questioned Yasser Arafat about whether he was seeking peace, he replied: “We don’t want peace, we want victory. Peace for us means Israel’s destruction and nothing else…. We shall fight on to victory. Even for decades, for generations, if necessary.” This accords with the jihadi ethos – and Islam has the largest bloc of states in the UN.

As Bernard Lewis points out, there is no bloc of Christian or Buddhist states that meets and decides on a common course of action at the UN. In contrast, “Some fifty-five Muslim governments, including monarchies and republics, conservatives and revolutionaries, practitioners of capitalism and disciples of various kinds of socialism, friends and enemies of the United States, and exponents of a whole spectrum of shades of neutrality, have built up an elaborate apparatus of international consultation and even, on some occasions, of cooperation. They hold regular high-level conferences, and, despite differences of structure, ideology, and policy, [they] have achieved a significant measure of agreement and common action.”

Given the power of the Islamic bloc in the UN and Islam’s worldwide network of mosques preaching jihad and hatred of the Western civilization in general, and of America and Israel in particular, it is not only absurd and comic, but also self-demeaning and self-destructive for the US and Israel to remain in the UN.

In 1975, Senator Patrick Moynihan, US Ambassador to the United Nations, argued that the US should remain in opposition to the UN. In contrast, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said the UN was not worth saving and that the US should “let it sink.” By remaining in the UN, both the US and Israel undermine what is most needed in this nihilistic age, moral clarity.

Moral clarity is especially needed with respect to Islam, which Bat Ye’or called a “culture of hate,” but which, for that reason, may be called a “culture of evil.” What else can be said of Iran, the emerging superpower of the Middle East, that preaches “death to America” and “death to Israel”? What else can be said of Saudi Arabia, which finances terrorist groups to implement these maledictions?

Understanding Ahmadinejad

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 28, 2009

BS”D

I have done an extensive google search on Ahmadinejad’s now famous words regarding “the Zionist entity”, which he spoke at the The World Without Zionism conference in Tehran, on 28. 10. 05. (translated version; provided by Iran Focus) Wikipedia covers the controversy as well. I looked for a transcript at the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting , but it doesn’t appear to have archives that far back.

According to all the leftie sites I visited, the following are the transliterated words in question.

“Imam ghoft een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad.”

I have a couple of Iranian acquaintances. I’ll run this sentence by them sometime. In the meantime, here’s the liberal/antizionist (read “antisemitic”) take on their pal Ahmadinejad’s words.

That passage will mean nothing to most people, but one word might ring a bell: rezhim-e. It is the word “Regime”, pronounced just like the English word with an extra “eh” sound at the end. Ahmadinejad did not refer to Israel the country or Israel the land mass, but the Israeli regime. This is a vastly significant distinction, as one cannot wipe a regime off the map. Ahmadinejad does not even refer to Israel by name, he instead uses the specific phrase “rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods” (regime occupying Jerusalem).

So this raises the question.. what exactly did he want “wiped from the map”? The answer is: nothing. That’s because the word “map” was never used. The Persian word for map, “nagsheh”, is not contained anywhere in his original farsi quote, or, for that matter, anywhere in his entire speech. Nor was the western phrase “wipe out” ever said. Yet we are led to believe that Iran’s President threatened to “wipe Israel off the map”, despite never having uttered the words “map”, “wipe out” or even “Israel”.

THE PROOF:

The full quote translated directly to English:

“The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time”.

Word by word translation:

Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).

Summary of Durban II Ahmadinejad Speech & World Reaction

Notes taken while listening to Dejected Megalomaniacs on Arutz Sheva with Malkah & Yishai Fleisher.

  • At least 30 countries including all EU countries left until Ahmadinejad’s speech was over.

  • The BBC said it was a PR disaster for the UN.

  • The Czech Republic left permanently.

  • Those who remained applauded his remarks.

  • According to Yishai Fleisher, a well known professor of Middle Eastern studies that he spoke with said the speech was a PR disaster for UN and Ahmadinejad. He was supposed to look cool and level-headed instead of a like nut. Instead, the opposite happened.

  • He received a hero’s welcome when returned to Iran. Supporters who met him at the airport chanted “Death to Israel”.

  • A Swiss lady from Geneva, who participated in an organized demonstration against Ahmadinejad at Durban II, was interviewed on the show. She reported that at the end of the conference, only 6 representatives remained, mainly Arab representatives. This question comes up at about 17:22.
