Muslim Lies and Videotape

There is an Egyptian saying to describe a masochist who constantly chooses pain, suffering, crying, yelling and screaming at every occasion possible. It says, “They need a funeral to gratify their hunger to slap their faces.” That saying perfectly fits Arab reaction around the world to the Gaza flotilla incident. If you doubt this, just attend a funeral in the Arab world and you will see what I mean.

More and more facts are coming out about the aforementioned incident and it does not look good for those who rushed to judgment and fell for the hype.  As we now know, for instance, video footage has proven that  the Gaza flotilla jihadists initiated the violence against Israeli soldiers:

However, those who conspired to manufacture such a crisis know that they have won the PR war since whatever facts come out later will not be covered with the same intensity and passion of the first days following the incident. What matters to Islamist crisis seekers is that the news for several days all over the world blames Israel as a bloodthirsty rogue nation that inflicted an unjustified massacre on peaceful, unarmed humanitarians.

Muslim street demonstrations like those following the incident are staged for Western audiences; we immigrants of Middle Eastern origin understand this hype and are no longer moved by it. On the other hand, Western culture is extremely moved by this big Islamist show — the cries, the tears, the pleading, the yelling, the covert threats and above all, the mass mania. Over nothing, hoards of people in the Middle East can be easily incited to go into a fit of rage and run into the streets seeking vengeance against a Christian or a Jew who supposedly dishonored Islam.

After news of massacres to non-Muslims by Muslims, we often say “there they go again” and just go on with our lives. Christian Copts in Egypt suffer at the hands of Muslim mobs extracting vengeance in the streets after hearing a fiery sermon in their mosque by their local Imam, telling a fabricated story of Christian crimes against Islam or that a Christian man violated a Muslim woman. These stories, supported by “witnesses,” ignite violent behavior often leading to horrific tragedies. Just recently, the homes of Christians in a coastal town in Egypt were all burnt to the ground after a Friday prayer rumor. The strategy and tactics of the flotilla incident are the same. The stage is set to start the same game over and over again; the Islamists provoke Israel and keep testing its patience. To them it is just a game where a few men will die and go to heaven, but to Israel it is life or death.

What is remarkable is that supposedly well-educated and informed Westerners in positions of power are buying this jihadist propaganda. Helen Thomas of the White House Press Corps cried out that the flotilla incident was a deliberate massacre.  Without investigation or reasoning, Western leftists go along with this game, much like the constantly outraged Arab street. As Rahm Emanuel said, they never want to allow a crisis go to waste. Leftist in the media are all too eager to support sick, hateful and baseless Muslim demonstrations crafted to boost their PR and promote anti-Semitism around the world. Their collaboration with Islamists in this incident has done a great disservice to the public who depend on mainstream media for their understanding of the Arab Israeli conflict.

When will the West learn Arab psychology? Whenever West Bank and Gaza Strip news become secondary or overshadowed by more pressing issues such as the economy, oil leaks and perhaps more urgent, human suffering around the world, Islamists immediately get in gear to create a crisis. In their mind, nothing should be more urgent than destroying Israel, not even human happiness, family, children or peace itself. Like the Egyptian saying, they need a funeral to be happy.

The world never learns from history. Arab and Muslim Jew-haters have perfected the art of hype, drama and dragging everyone down to their level. They are hell bent on convincing the world to hate and blame Israel. They have to resort to game playing to justify 7th century Muslim obligation to kill Jews wherever they are found; that is the commandment from Mohammed himself. Every commandment by the prophet is an obligation and the Muslim mind must deal with the travesty; they must justify terror against Jews not only to the West, but also to Muslims themselves. The jihad against Israel, the Jews, Christians, the West, the Great Satan (USA), Little Satan (Israel) etc. all must be justified. Saying it is a commandment from Allah will not pass the UN general Assembly. Jihadist violence must be legitimized and institutionalized as a legitimate cause. Incidents must be created to justify the jihad. Mohammed had to accuse the Jews of violating a treaty to justify killing 800 Jewish men. Incidents such as the flotilla are just part of the strategy of justify jihad, violence, burning, killing and terror.  It is a commandment; it must be done and if a little provocation and lying is needed, then so be it.

Just watch Arab TV and you will learn that Israel went to help in the Haiti for the purpose of harvesting organs from the Haitian earthquake victims. Israel is so evil, that it must be annihilated. The Muslim public and the World must accept aggression against Israel as self-defense. Israel is suffering from constant and relentless intimidation and invitation to unnecessary confrontation. You would think the world would know that by now.

Muslims know exactly what they should do to stop the blockade against Gaza. First, they should be sincere with themselves, not just trying to convince the world, that they want peace with Israel and adopt a live and let live view. After that, major players in the region such as Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria etc. must pressure Hamas to end the barrage of missiles against Israel and that their financial support should be linked to Palestinian willingness to accomplish peace with Israel. Israel is fighting for its survival; everyone knows that and there is no need to kid ourselves any more.

With more and more facts coming out, it has become clear that this was a set up; a PR stunt to let Muslim countries surrounding Israel keep fooling the world over and over again.

    lts time the West froze out the muslims, cut the supply of Mercedes and iphones
    and send them back to their camel riding past – we are utterly sick of their whingeing
    and their violence. Nuke them.

  • Mary

    Excellent article! The coverage of this pro-Palestinian provocation was appalling. After reading the the New York Times version of it, I was extremely disgusted. Too many other news agencies pull their information from the Times and so acquire their hype. Does anybody in the media ever bother to check the facts for accuracy anymore??? I wrote a letter to the Editor of The New York Times, but, I seriously doubt they will suddenly begin to accurately report the facts. They are far too busy writing propaganda, they don't have time for news. To get at the truth we have to dig through the muck and mire of mainstream political propaganda. Only to hope that we have arrived at the right conclusions.

    • William Smart

      Israel must be in desperate, desperate trouble for the New York Times to turn on it!

      • American

        Not at all, it is no surprise that main stream media is turning, it is a direct order from the dc-kool-aid pusher.

      • AmericanPatriot

        Think of all the "special interest Muslim groups" which push the media. No one dares to tell the truth about the Muslims! We have sharia complacency! Look at who the UN appointed to Woman's Issues for cry'in out loud!! Muslims spew their hate, and the fun loving (supposedly) liberal/progressives clap and cheer!

        • Jim C.

          Really? What American mainstream outlets have actually come out against Israel? Come on.

          Sometime the American press is critical of Israel–but then, so Ha'aretz can be, as well–as it has been during this incident.

          • bostonian

            No one talking about american media or israeli media. It just communist media. In 1930 the same NYT praised Stalin while millions of ukrainians died from starvation. And ukraine is like canada.

          • Jim C.

            Yes, they are talking about the American media.

          • To the ignorant

            Ha'aretz critical of Israel???You must be kidding right!?

            Ha'aretz is the most leftist newsletter in the Israel.

            It is as close to anti Israel as a progressive newsletter can be.

            They would love to give the country to the palestinian and kiss their ass in the delusion that they will be loved by them!

            They are funny if not right out SICK!

      • To the ignorant

        As usual you do not have an idea about what you are taking about!

        The leftist NewYork Times was never pro Israel!

  • Kim Bruce

    The only "slap in the face" that will wake up the western MSM will be a genocide in Israel.
    I hate to even think of that possibility but it is a possibility if Israel does nothing to protect her borders against the Islamic onslaught.
    Anti-Semitism is alive and well in the world, folks and it aqppears they have the support of the UN.

    An interesting poll was taken asking students from grade-school lvel to college if they remember who fought in the WWII. 3 out of five students could not believe that Germany and Japan were enemies. 3 out of 5 thoght D-Day was the invasion of Pearl Harbor.
    It's no wonder that many young people do not believe the holocaust ever occurred. They simply don't know about it.

    Our history texts need revising to reflect the tyranny, the true causes of the great wars and the truthful (not bent by leftist or Islamic propaganda) reasons for the atrocities of the 20 Century.
    That's only wishful thinking I guess.

    • netizen

      Not even that. One was not enough. In Hungary after Holocaust they intimidated Jews "not to profit from their Holocaust."
      UN has become an appendix of OIC. Who dares speak against a block of 56 votes? That's why other international organizations are emerging, like BRIC.
      Some change in textbooks has started in Texas, a tough beginning. Lefties know how much power relies on their "moderate" lies in the textbooks. Thank God for internet.

  • Kim Bruce

    Would the main stream media even mention if thousands of Jews were killed in an unprovoked missile attack? I am not so sure. It may receive minor mention in a headline across the ticker on the bottom of the screen.
    Would the UNHRC condemn it? They probably wold verbally but that would be about all you would hear.

    • netizen

      They do mention sometimes. Even when the killed person is from Sderot, they say "one colon dead." Wondering where is it that Jews are not colons?

  • Kanwi

    A good way to beat the crap of the mainstream media and it's syndicated tentacles is perhaps to start a Blog Roll of Honor that rates Blogs like Frontpage and NewsRealBlog for their impartiality and truthfulness of the facts. The marketing of that Roll to Internet users as an alternative for daily news spin media publications will soon take on. Once business notes the uptake the sponsorship revenues will come. An email headline comment newsletter can then provide links to stories within blogs and in this way circumvent the mainstream crap. This could then revolutionise global news distribution a bit like the way social networks have changed the nature of interactions on the Internet. More tools like Iphone and Ipad and Kindle will help the process also.

    • American

      Which is exactly why the dc-kool-aid pusher said recently that these new electronic gizmos are no good for us.. he can't control it :D

    • Jim C.

      Even if you are wholeheartedly behind the point of view, can you really be that stupid to call Frontpage Mag "impartial," when even THEY would not claim to be so?

  • Saba

    The recent new video on You Tube "We Con the World" is a must to see. It clearly displays the obession the international commmunity has with Israel. The world clearly has a bad case of OCID…OBESSIVE CUMPULSIVE ISRAEL DISORDER.

  • von Starkermann

    Nonie Darwish is not even Jewish and she is telling the truth as no one else can. The Israelis are getting the bum's rush and specifically by Jews themselves. Jewish controlled newspapers have turned on their own people, as the same is true for the TV and Radio networks. The Arabs just eat this anti Israel bullshit up, as do the liberal Jews of America.

    • To the ignorant

      Shame on the progressive american jews for their anti Israel propaganda!!!!!!

      They should be charges with treason and incitement for genocide!

      They, from all people, should know better!!!!!!

      How painful and sad!!!!!!!

  • Diann

    If you have not yet read 'Cruel and Usual Punishment', but Nonie Darwish – please – get the book and read it. YOu will have a new understanding of this conflict. More specifically about the Middle East, her book 'Now they Call me Infidel', makes the agenda crystal clear, about Gaza and Israel. Nonie is a brave woman to speak out like this. Her message needs to reach all levels of government. My suggestion is to buy her books and send them to your federal representative. If our leaders can 'get it', then all will go better to preserve our culture.

  • Jim C.

    I would like to know what mainstream news sources have come out "against" Israel in a way any different than the Israeli news sources have?

  • steven L

    The world is not fooled but a willing participant and suppoeter. The mass media already stated that the Israelis edited their video.

    • Jim C.

      Really. You know, Glenn Beck recently ran the Israeli footage and said that "This is the only place Americans will see this video;" implying it had been "censored" by the "mainstream media."

      Only problem was, that same footage led news coverage the day before on EVERY SINGLE major network. Glenn Beck is, demonstrably and unequivocably, a lying son of a bitch.

    • To the ignorant


      • trickyblain

        What is BS? Beck did say that. The major networks did run the same video the day before. Screaming does not change those facts.

  • USMCSniper

    Iran would be willing to send its Revolutionary Guard members to accompany further aid ships to Gaza, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday in an interview cited by Reuters. "The naval wing of the Revolutionary Guard is ready to assist the peace flotilla to Gaza with all its effort and capabilities," Khamenei's Revolutionary Guard spokesman Ali Shirazi stated.

    Israel would be fully justified in sinking Iranian naval vessels in Israelis waters.

    • Jim C.

      Am I wrong to hope they do–and Israel does!

      • Rifleman

        Not at all, the mad mullahs are a main nexus of international terrorism.

    • To the ignorant

      I hope Israel does much more then that!!!!!!

      It is about time.

      We all know that the only country that will try to stop this madness is Israel.

      If the US does not stop Israel!!!!!!!!!!

    • Raymond in DC

      Iran's navy has limited long-range capabilities, and is no match for Israel's naval forces. Its sub may be the only vessel that can reach Israel armed, and it's no match for Israel's own.

      Turkey's navy will pose a greater challenge, but in the end Israel could take them out too. Given the possibility of such a confrontation we see now how foolish it was (and is) for Israel to provide Turkey with advanced military systems.

    Every good cache of weapons should contain pig's blood mixed in the compound. Every Bomb, ever bullet and every person should have a vial of dried pig's blood to sent them to hell with.. AMEN

  • kafir4life

    A little OT – Does anybody know the maximum amount of pig crap (No, I'm not refering to the koran, I'm refering to the actual feces from a pig……no, I'm not talking about mohamad the pedophile murdering prophet, I'm taking about that stinky goo that comes out of the anus of a pig…..NO! I'm NOT talking about Abe Hooper the fat piglet from the terrorist supporting organization cair……but I can certainly understand the confusion) that can be safely added to cement and other building materials?

  • skbodger2

    WOW! I'm a little new to the information of what's happening to the Jews today, but I have to say as a christian I feel deeply sad for the jews and pray for thier well being. As an American I am utterly angrey and disgusted with the people that in any way condone the harm of Isrial and her rightful people. It is not only smart, for many reasons to support Isrial, but our MORAL obligation to do so. I don't quite understand why so many Jews in America support the things they do, but I think it has something to do with making "LEFTISM" thier most important faith an tradition.

  • Jaime

    I was shocked as an educator last week. There were so many things I did not know.
    Mozart was Muslim. Edison stole the lightbulb invention from a guy named Hussien!
    Muslims discovered America! Britian, today, does not have electricity, or sidewalks!
    WW2 was started by Chrisitans, and the Bombing of Japan to end the World War, was in the name of "Christianity!" Wow! Thank you Mr. Saudi Arabia for funding the text books so all of us can learn to Hate Chrisitans, Jews, Freedom, and Western Civilization! Allah Hu Akbar ! God really is the Greatest of all Schemers!
