Opposing the Palestinian War Against the Jews

Pages: 1 2

Editor’s note: The speech below was delivered by David Horowitz at Brooklyn College on March 10, 2011. The speech is part of a nationwide campaign being conducted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center to counter the genocidal propaganda campaign launched by the Hamas-related Muslim Students Association as “Israel Apartheid Week.” The Center has also created the video “Palestinian Wall of Lies” to counter the MSA’s genocidal propaganda campaign.

Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Myths and Facts

“To achieve justice, it is first necessary to call things by their right names.” Confucius

It’s a pleasure, I guess, to be back on a college campus. It wasn’t like this in my day, however, with all these officers present, wanding everybody and searching your backpacks. How does it feel to go through a checkpoint? Here’s what I feel: safer.That’s what checkpoints are about. They’re about making people feel safer when they’re under attack from terrorists and, as it so happens, Middle Eastern Jew-haters.

In the 1930s, the Communists and the Nazis in Germany joined to break up meetings of their opponents with protests, and if that didn’t work with protests inside the meeting halls, and if that didn’t work, with physical violence. The main opponents of the Nazis and Communists were liberals — social democrats. This violence against the social democrats, this attempt to suppress discussion of political issues, spelled the end of the Weimar Republic and its democracy. It led directly to the reign of Hitler, who was elected chancellor and then it was all over.

The most important battle line in defending our democracy against its totalitarian  enemies is the First Amendment, which guarantees us the ability to dissent — to disagree in a civil manner, and to have our point of view heard. That is the indispensable basis of a democracy.

And as you can see evidenced here tonight, there is a movement all across this country to suppress the free speech of conservatives, of people who embrace the fundamental principles of this democracy and are actively defending them against the threat posed by totalitarian radicals. You don’t need bodyguards and you don’t need armed police and you don’t need checkpoints if you’re a leftist coming to speak on a college campus. That’s because conservatives respect the democratic principles of our society, while many leftists don’t.

The group that attempted to organize a protest against my appearance here tonight is the International Socialist Organization, a Marxist organization whose goal, according to its own website, is a “dictatorship of the proletariat” in America. If you are looking for the true reactionaries of our time, they are political leftists.

Leftists operate on the basis of doctrines that were discredited over the entire course of the 20th century at the cost of 100 million innocent lives. The International Socialist Organization is one of the most active components of this communist left on college campuses. For ten years, they have protested my appearances on campuses across the country, no matter what subject I was speaking on.

The pressure from this left has been so successful that now legislators cannot even hold hearings without being attacked as “McCarthyites” or “racists” or “Islamophobes.” This effort to embargo critical thought is the primary weapon of the radical jihad within the democracies of the West at present.

You probably were in class today and didn’t see the congressional hearings about the radicalization of Muslims held by Representative Peter King, which have been attacked by the political left and the Democrats on the committee. The hearings featured a particularly sad case of an African American father from Texas whose son had converted to Islam and went to a mosque which happened to be a radical mosque and was recruited into the Islamic jihad. He was sent to a Muslim center in Yemen where he was trained to be a terrorist, returned to the United States and murdered two U.S. soldiers at an Arkansas military facility. His father testified about the dangers to American youth who might unsuspectingly attend mosques connected to the jihad.

Also testifying at these hearings was Zuhdi Jasser, who is an American Muslim. Jasser said that that the ones whom these radicalization programs hurt are Muslims and that the Muslim community needs to stand up and defend democracy in this country. That’s what we’re all waiting for.

The fascist left is making significant heady in silencing the opposition to the domestic jihad.  It’s already impossible for me, and speakers like me, to come to a university campus and have a civilized exchange with faculty or with students. Leftist faculty avoid us; conservative faculty hardly exist. To speak to students, we have to come under police guard, and face malicious slanders that utterly misrepresent what we think and have said. This means that many students are unable to hear a non-left point of view on their campuses and weigh the issues for themselves.

This atmosphere of intimidation, because that’s what it is – is a threat to everyone’s democratic rights. You intimidate the opposition and then you win an election and then you shut everybody down. And why do you do that? Because people who go out of their way to intimidate others are people who believe so fiercely in their own righteousness that they basically want to eliminate their opponents, and they do. When they have enough power, they shut you up or they kill you.

The atmosphere of intimidation on this campus is so intense that with one exception the dozen or Jewish student organizations at Brooklyn College were afraid to sponsor me. Only one professor on this campus, Mitchell Langbert, was willing to get this room reserved for this event, and only one student was willing to stick his neck out and organize it, and that is Yosef Sobol.

Across the country, Jewish student groups have been intimidated from presenting their case if presenting it involves saying anything negative about people who launch terrorist attacks against Jews and want to destroy the only Jewish state in existence. Because doing so might “offend an ethnic or religious group.” Doing so would be Islamophobia. So everyone has to pretend, for example, that there’s actually a peace process in the Middle East. As a result, Jews have to pretend that it is their fault that they haven’t been able to make peace with people who want to kill them

If there are liberals in this room, you should be horrified. Anybody who is truly liberal, anybody who believes in democracy, should be horrified by this situation. If there were a liberal professor on this campus with guts, he would be in this room introducing me, and save Mitchell Langbert from having to stick his neck out for the thousandth time on this campus. But there are no such liberal professors; they are all hiding.

Now, to the Middle East. Let me say before I start, since leftists on the web have portrayed me as an arch-Zionist. I actually have never been to Israel. I have never been a political Zionist except in the very basic sense of believing that Jews have a right to exist and that they have a right to a state in the Middle East. That is the only sense that I am a Zonist, as every decent person should be.

These are the words said in 2007 by Mahmoud Al-Zahar, the founder of Hamas:

“There is no place for you Jews among us and you have no future among the nations of the world. You are headed to annihilation.”

This is Ahmad Bahar, the acting chairman of the Gaza Parliament. The parliament in Gaza, of course, is controlled by Hamas, which was elected in a democratic election. It’s important to point this out because when I submitted these quotes to the UCLA Daily Bruin for publication, They said, “Well, these are individuals and in your ad, you call them ‘Voices of Palestine.’” Well, yes.

These are the voices of Palestine, the Chairman of the Parliament, Ahmad Bahar, said:

“Make us victorious over the infidel people. Allah, take hold of the Jews and their allies; Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one.”

The next statement is from Ibrahim Mudayris, an official of the Palestinian Authority, Ministry of Religious Trust and Religious Affairs:

“The prophet said the resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them. Rejoice in Allah’s victory. Everything wants vengeance on the Jews, these pigs on the face of the earth, and the day of our victory, Allah willing, will come.”

Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, the party of God, an Islamic party in Lebanon, funded and created by the Iranians has said that he hopes that the Jews will gather in Israel, so he won’t have to hunt us down globally.

The creator of Hamas, is the Muslim Brotherhood, about which you’ve read something in the last few weeks during the protests in Egypt. Here’s what Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, has said. Qaradawi spoke in Cairo a week or two ago to a million cheering Muslims:

“Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler by means of all the things he did to them. Even though they exaggerated this issue, he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers.”

In other words, Islam — or Qaradawi’s Islam, Hamas’ Islam, Hezbollah’s Islam, Ahmadinejad’s Islam — will finish the job that Hitler started.

So who are the opponents of the Jews in the Middle East? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know. They are Nazis, Islamic Nazis, and the level of intimidation is already so great in this country that you can’t even say Islamic fascists, let alone Islamic Nazis to describe these people, because that would be “Islamophobic.” But these are Nazis. That’s who they are. They want to kill the Jews. That is their agenda. They don’t want a state in the Middle East. They have rejected a state over and over again. Because their goal is not the self-determination of the Palestinian people. Their goal is to push the Jews into the sea.

So how do people deal with this? How do religious Muslims deal with this? How do people who want peace, or say they want peace, people who are basically decent, get associated with Hamas and Hezbollah and the Palestinian Authority? How do liberals turn a blind eye to these Nazi agendas. Well, they say to themselves — these people can’t really mean that. They’re just angry and oppressed. The Jews are oppressing them. They’re just reacting to that.

For a moment, let’s hold apart the question as to whether the Jews have actually oppressed the Palestinians. Instead, let’s just consider the claim that these expressions of Palestinian inhumanity are reactions to being oppressed. For thousands of years the world has been an unhappy place and people have been oppressed. Yet never in all those thousands of years has there been a people who have strapped bombs onto their own children and told them to go and blow up innocent people, people at weddings, seders, and in pizza parlors, and if they do that they will go to heaven and become saints, and if they’re lucky enough to be males will have seventy-two virgins as a reward.

No other people in the world has sunk so low morally as the Palestinians and yet  everybody is afraid to say this. Even if you are oppressed, there are things that you don’t do that Palestinians are willing to do. There have been revolts in Iran against jihadist rulers, but there is no such revolt in Gaza or the West Bank. The terrorist governments in both places are elected without opposition from an anti-terrorist party. All through history, people have been oppressed, but no people has done what the Palestinians have done. No people has shown itself to be as morally sick as the Palestinians.

The next defense of Palestinian terrorism is that even if they commit such heinous acts and teach their children to hate Jews and want to kill them, that is because the Jews stole their land.  This is the biggest lie of the Middle East conflict. It is a lie of Hitlerian dimensions because the agenda of Hamas is to kill the Jews, or to quote the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, “push the Jews into the sea.” This was also the slogan of the PLO, until its KGB sponsors advised Arafat not to  say “push the Jews into the sea” because if you continue to do that you will not get people to support you. Instead, say that you want self-determination, say the Palestinians want a state, and that the Israelis are denying you a state and oppressing you. Then people will support you.

So the Palestinians have done that. For two decades the Jews have offered the Palestinians their own state and the Palestinians have rejected the offer. Today there is not a single Palestinian leader who is willing to recognize existence of the Jewish state. What is the chant on college campuses today? “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” The Jordan river is the eastern boundary of Israel; the Mediterranean is its boundary to the west. If Palestine extends from the river to the sea, there is no Israel. In other words, kill the Jews and push them into the sea. That’s what the Middle East conflict is about. It’s not about right against right. It’s about right against wrong.

The biggest lie promulgated by the anti-Israel left and the Palestinian Jew-haters is that Israel is “occupied Palestine.” They have even created maps to prove it. At UC San Diego, the Israel Apartheid Wall features four successive maps to show the encroachment of Jews on the state of Palestine. The first map purports to show Palestine in 1946. The map is Muslim green and there are tiny little white spots to show Jewish settlements around Jerusalem.

The fact that the map is green is interesting. The war against Israel began as a war of Pan-Arab nationalists who didn’t want a Jewish state in the region because Jews are not Arabs. Now the war against Israel is a Muslim war to clean out the infidels. Not only are the Palestinians terrorists, they are sick Nazi terrorists, racists who can’t live peacefully alongside anybody who’s not Muslim – just ask the dwindling Christian populations of Bethlehem and other Arab cities in the region. The map is a lie. There was no Palestine in 1946 and anybody who used the word “Palestine” in those days was referring to the Jews.

    I have always loved David Horowitz’s work but publishing this picture without at least a warning or something…I will not be able to sleep tonight. I am completely freaked out at seeing a picture of this poor child. I am a mother of children this age and I am going to have nightmares.

    I understand that you want to make a point but please consider your more sensitive readership who don’t need to be persuaded with graphic imagery.

  • Anaroha

    If they continue to indoctrinate their children… how can they cure their pathology. They can not act or think as human they are zombies! David, they are trapped in a vicious circle, please tell me how can we open it!

  • Anthony

    This was a very, very good lecture. I would like to know if the audience was swayed in any way by the historic backdrop, and logical presentation of the current reality of Global Islam.

  • Andres de Alamaya

    All this talk, talk, talk is so tiring. I would like to see action, not an eye for an eye but a HEAD for an eye. It is time for the civilized world to become a bit more uncivilized and to target these loud mouth leaders and assassinate them. Students who disrupt meetings can be tracked down outside and beaten up. Sticks and stones will work far more effectively on them than words.

    • WildJew

      What you advocate may or may not come to pass but do not minimize the effect of words. David and others are ably describing the nature of this global war against Jews, Christians (and other non-Muslims) and the West. It needs to be explained so that people understand what is at stake. The only thing I would take issue with is David's description of Gaza as "Arab" land. Gaza is Jewish land that is occupied by Arabs. Ariel Sharon's retreat from Gaza (under pressure from George W. Bush), was a huge mistake.

    • lifetaker1775

      Time to get it on, stand our ground and make a lasting impression on those knuckleheads. AT&T reach out and touch someone.

  • Steve Chavez

    Most of these students know nothing about Communists, Nazis, PLO, KGB, or even the Berlin Wall when many were barely being born. The things they do know about these groups are from their professors who have a Che poster in their office and in their college days they were in Communist front groups funded by the KGB, including their current President and almost everyone in his circle! They couldn't tell you if the Berlin Wall was to keep people in or to keep people out! Many of the profs turn them into "Socialists" which is the PC term really meaning "Communists" but that's such a mean bad word!

    When Israel finally reacts to the latest barrage of 10,000 rockets from Hamas/Palestinians, and now a bombing, they will scream "over-reaction" and if Israel bombs one of those rocket launching sites with a precision laser-guided rocket of their own, the cameras will be there to show the "dead women and children" since the Hamas launching site was their own home and they all knew, including the mother, that their children were put in harms way to become "martyrs!" Then they dare cry?

    • ziontruth

      "…the cameras will be there to show…"

      In my vision of the future Jewish Republic, this will not be so. The cameras will not be there to show, because they won't be allowed. The Jewish State will assume complete control of its media image–the foreign media will not know anything except by the Jewish State's permission, and when the Jewish State desires the Zionist point of view to be aired by the media outlets, it will be aired. The media outlets will be made to atone for their decades-long abuse of Israel's freedom of the press by being coerced to comply with, and publish when called for, Israel's point of view.

  • StephenD

    Fantastic Post David! I agree with WildJew. This needs to be explained to everyone. Perhaps when the mud is cleared away people will realize how they've been played. I don't look forward to it but it seems we're heading for a global confrontation one day in the not too distant future. Can you say…"Crusade?"

  • Dispozovdaburka

    great article.

  • WildJew

    One more thing. I've got to say David, with all your mobility (I have little mobility due to the nature of my business), I am surprised you've never been to Israel. I've been three times, though it's been years now. It is an amazing and wonderful country. Little doubt when you go, you will get a first-class tour of the land, including Judea and Samaria. You need to go so you can see everything you've been talking about on the ground, first hand. I'm looking forward to reading "Horowitz goes to Israel."

    • QSuzy

      Absolutely David should go to Israel! I'm very surprised he's never been to the Holy Land.

    WHY HAMAS RESUMMED TERROR ATTACKS ON ISRAEL

    After being relatively quiet for 27 months since the end of the Gaza War why has violent, murdering, genocidal Hamas unleashed a wave of terrorist attacks on Isreal with rockets slamming into its Southern border and a massive bombing at a Jerusalem bus station killing one and injuring dozens? Called "The Third Terror War" by Caroline Glick (she includes the butchering of the Fogel family) why has Hamas suddenly changed tactics and gone on the offensive threatening Israel's security and peace? Why now?

    continued

  • http://apollospaeks.townhall.com ApolloSpeaks

    The simple answer I believe is this: the "democratic" unrest that's sweeping over and shaking the despotic Middle East is overshadowing and sidelining the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; and by shattering the calm Hamas is hoping to provoke Israel into another Gaza campaign so that a new war with thousands of Palestinians dead and injured will steal back the regional and international spotlight from the turmoil in Libya, Syria, Yeman and Bahrein. Isreal would do well to restrain itself and not escalate the conflict. Let their conflict with their implacable, racist, Jew hating foes shrink in importance while the sick, dysfunctional Moslem Middle East explodes with violence and death.

  • lilach

    There's a limit to how much Israel can restrain itself. I live in south Israel, and as long as it's one rocket every now and then we can take it, but if it'll be dozens of rockets or more every day, it's not just killing and maiming and destroying and causing psycholigical disabilities, but completely paralysing the economy and any kind of normal life. People and towns can't function under such conditions and it leads to collapse. The people in the towns near the border with Gaza have been living like that for years until Cast Lead. Now Hamas has Grad rockets that can reach the larger cities in the south, and perhaps also Fajr rockets that can reach central Israel. I live in the largest city in the south that is central for the entire south. If they'll attack it with thousands of rockets it will not only paralyse the city, but the entire south. If it continues for months, let alone years, the south will collapse. It will stop functioning – the economy, industry, health, higer education. If that happens there will be another Cast Lead since the other option is surrender, collapse and death.

    • stern

      I find this incredible: “as long as it’s one rocket every now and then we can take it”. For heaven’s sake, no other country anywhere in the world would just “take” even a single rocket. You should not be expected to “take it”, you should not “take it” and Israel’s leaders need to stop threatening tough action and actually do something!

    • http://apollospaeks.townhall.com ApolloSpeaks

      By "restraint" I didn't mean Israel shouldn't forcefully respond to Hamas attacks. I meant everything short of a full fledged military invasion which Hamas, Assad and the other ME despots under seige would love.

    • QSuzy

      I agree with you. The Jew-haters will hate Israel no matter what she does or doesn't do. Israel has the right to defend herself whether the UN Jew-haters agree or not. I've never understood the outrageous call for "restraint" when those nations calling for it would never restrain themselves for one moment.

  • hmcdona

    Can it be that the anti-Israel president of the United States has emboldened Hamas and other extremist elements to resume their terrorist attacks against Jews and Israel?

  • http://vnnforum.com DeShawn

    The jews are the terrorists, not Palestine. The rest of the world knows it, so what's wrong with you folks? Jews have been kicked out of 100 countries throughout history. Did they ever once think to look at their own behavior? I suppose it's always the "goy's" fault, right?

        Yeah, how about the thousands of Palestinian children you killed over the last ten years. Does that give you brain-lock? You folks are hypocrites of the worst kind.

        • MixMChess

          Israel has NOT killed thousands of Palestinian children over the past ten years or ever.

          Palestinian terrorists, however, have intentionally murdered hundreds of Israeli children over the past ten years. Palestinian terrorist groups like Hamas also intentionally murder Palestinian children, use them as human shields and strap bombs to them to murder Israelis.

          But I'm sure as long as the Palestinians are committing massacres, those facts don't bother you, huh?

        • Rifleman

          Israel hasn't killed thousands of 'palestinian' children in the last 50 years, much less in the last ten, despite their being used as human shields, and they've stabbed none in their beds. The muslims have been slaughtering Israeli children in their beds all along.

          If it was me (thanks for mistaking me for an Israeli, but I'm an American Baptist), the 'palestinians' would have learned better decades ago, or they wouldn't be in Gaza or the West Bank.

    • MixMChess

      if you are going to pretend to be intelligent OR educated, you need to remember that Palestine is NOT an analogy to Jews, one is a people and the other is a piece of dirt.

      In the meantime, maybe you should go ask God just whose fault it is that lowlifes like you prefer to kill Jews. Or maybe you think two grown men slaughtering a 4-year old boy IN HIS SLEEP is the definition of honorable manhood.

    Great speech.

    I have to say the reference to Detroit is a bit dated, we might not notice 7000 rockets into "urban farmland."

    Horrifying photo, it makes deshawn's rant even more pathetic. As an American raised using firearms since 5, it's even more horrifying because for need of a small dog and a shotgun, I'm not reading about a couple of dead knife-wielding Aholes.

      Could be a piece of irony there, considering the inroads that sharia is making in the Motor City these days it is the safest place for a Muslim to be. Although I suppose if the RCMP were to attack the US, they might not be so friendly to the shahids.

  • jaythehistorian

    @DeShawn; You are a filthy lier . How dare you justify the butchery of that 3 yo boy. You are a typical Nazi. Just as in the intifada ,which was perpetrated by the primitive , very cowardly Fakestinian war criminals, the worms who planned and sent out the murderers of the Fogels will be tracked down and give the immediate justice they deserve.

    • http://vnnforum.com DeShawn

      How can I be a Nazi, you jewish supremacist? I'm black. I didn't justify killing anyone, but just pointing out that you jews do a LOT more killing than the Palestinians do. You abuse a dog and cage it up, and it'll bite you after a while. I know you like namecalling and all of that, but it won't work on me. I know the TRUTH about you devils, and you can't deny it. You jews are the real racists, just look at your damn TalMUD!

      • MixMChess

        "You jews are the real racists, just look at your damn TalMUD!"

        No DeShawn, you are a filthy racist and anti-semite. The Talmud teaches that all men and women, of whatever color or creed (Jew and non-Jew alike), are created in God's image and possess inherent human dignity and worthiness. Nice try though.

      • MixMChess

        "I didn't justify killing anyone, but just pointing out that you jews do a LOT more killing than the Palestinians do."

        Which side has more casualties has nothing to do with who initiates and perpetuates the violence. Since the outbreak of the second intifada, more Palestinians than Israelis have been killed only because Israel has managed to thwart most Palestinian terrorist attacks. If Israel reduced its anti-terrorism measures, Israeli casualties would FAR surpass those of Palestinians. From 2000 to 2003 alone there were over 30,000 attempted terror attacks on Israeli civilians. From 2000-2009 there have been over 8,000 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel.

        The fact that the Palestinian Authority and terrorist groups have not succeeded in killing more Israelis does not mean they have not consistently tried to do so.

      • ziontruth

        "How can I be a Nazi, you jewish supremacist? I'm black."

        Ever heard of Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan? Those are just two examples of black Nazis. Very well, not THE Nazis of old, but their counterparts in all but the color of the skin. It's perfectly possible for a black, indeed for a person of any skin color, to harbor the same thought-patterns as the Nazis. Your anti-Jewish rantings would do an Aryan Nations member proud, and until you just now revealed you're black, I was sure you were from Stormfront. Ergo, you're nearly totally compatible with them.

      • intrcptr2

        Kinda figured from the name "of the Sean".

        But to enlighten you a tad better than your neo-Skinhead friends; http://vnnforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=138
        Nazism, and this pitiful excuse for intellectualism, are mental constructs which must be chosen, unlike your skin. I do wonder why a black man is linking such a clearly white racist website.

        And I am sorry, DeShawn, but with a comment like this;
        Did they ever once think to look at their own behavior? I suppose it's always the "goy's" fault, right
        Yes, you are justifying killing the Jews. It is called blaming the victim. And while there are times when this is justifiable (Like my pothead housemates getting kicked out because they are scum), there is no way to justify slicing up children while asleep, especially not some imagined slight that occurred somewhere, at some time in the past.

        I've no idea what you smoked for breakfast, or why your poppa hit you this hard up side the head. But you need to get a clue and wake up.

        And before you go off half-cocked, again, I'm not Jewish. I am British by extraction, full blood Anglo-Saxon, with a smattering of Indian and Celt. But I am awake and smart enough to recognize that history has given the Jews the shaft, and God is not happy about it.

        You're a Jew- and white-hating black supremacist toerag. And blacks do rather a lot more killing in a typical US city than any Jew anywhere in the world, come to think of it.

  • DrBukk

    Excellent speech! Glad you had good security.

    I would like to add that a communist & athiest physics professor told me there was no evidence whatsoever that Jews were in Egypt, and that they used the excuse of "chosen people" to obliterate other settlements and grab "the promised land" by force. By implication, this means that Jews are greedy, conceited and insular. IMHO, this is the characterization which underlies the KKK and the communist/Muslim anti-semitism.

    I would like to read your answer to this.

    • Dr Worm

      There is no archaeological evidence that supports Exodus. Other than the Torah and Old Testament, (which are the same things) there is no other written account of Exodus. If the Jews really had been enslaved in Egypt and then found some way out, there should be other references out there. Chances are that the Jews are ndigenous to Israel and never had to invade in the first place. The “promised land” argument is used quite often to justify the settlements, however anti-Semitism is much older than the current state of Israel.

      • nina

        "There is no archeological evidence". Because the archeologysts have not found any evidence does that mean that the Jews were not in Egypt? Firstly, they haven't found many things and still have theories about them. Perhaps, after so many years the evidence was obliterated. Or the archeologysts are looking in the wrong places. Then, the times that the archeologysts ascribe to when the Exodus should have happened may be inaccurate as they, the archeologysts, are using the old timetables of the beginning of Middle Estern archeology, which are not necessarily valid. Then there are the different names in ancient Egyptian documents which archeologysts are not sure how to read, and which could actually be the names written in the Hebrew Bible. There are many more reasons for doubting the pronounciations of contemporary archeologysts among them the will to delegitimize Israel and Jewish history, and also simply their own ineptitude.

  • MixMChess

    Now there's a facebook page dedicated to the murder of more innocent Jewish children:

    Apparently the page, which is dedicated to encourage a third Intifada in Israel, has over 308,395 fans. It warns that if Facebook removes the page "all Muslims will boycott Facebook forever." I just wish Zuckerberg had the balls to tell these Islamists to suck it.

    1. In general a great speech – but you have some facts wrong – you should be careful to be correct – e.g. the Pals attacked from Gaza in 48/56/67 – not 73. It was not the PLO that assasinated Gemayal but the Syrians. There are a few more

    2. Never been to Israel? Maybe you are eligible for e Birthright Israel free trip. But, seriously, get your ass on a plane and get over here ASAP – I will be glad to have you stay at my place and show you around – never a dull moment

    There are two great evil religions, One an atheocracratic religion that worships political power, and the other a theocracy that wants world domination. Both teach the evil anti-ethic: the end justifies the means. The atheocracy has many sects but all are derived from Marxism. Islam is clearly the theocracy. Now they are working together. Why?

    Could it simply be that the source of all evil is a concious force and isconsolidating its power in a final effort to destroy all who are free and good, and plunge the world into darkness and bondage?
    When we see incomprehensible evil, do we acknowledge it as evil, or try to deny it? Do we snear at the existence of the devil, but can't deny the growing darkness?

    One thing is clear, the left is working with the radical Muslims and the alliance of the two most destructive death cults on earth is an ominous and evil development. Pray for the world's deliverance, pray for an end to the evil. Pray for faith and courage.

    So the International Socialist Organization wants to side with the anti atheist Muslims. "Those who deny God must have their heads chopped off." It is written. Note also that Communists face death in Saudi Arabia should they spout off with "There is no God". Iran it's self has all but destroyed the Communist party. In which Islamic country does Communism thrive . Is there one or two?
    Do you stand against Imperialism like all good Communists should? Then why do you side with the Islamic Imperialists. You should be fighting the Islamic occupation Greek territory of Byzantium.
    Are you against Apartheid? The you must condemn the Islamic states who allow no other religion and in particular do not allow atheists.
    Do you attach your selves to the Muslims because your cause has been laughed off the world stage and you are in desperation to look like you are part of something.big.?

    Wouldn't it be something if it turned out that the 72 virgins promised to suicide bombers and others of such ilk, turned out to be 72 burly eunuchs from the era of the Califate. I can just picture them having a nice time with their new companions.

    If it is ever reached, the current and any other artificial “peace agreement” will be illegitimate before it is ever signed because (1) all people living in Palestine regardless of religion, race, origin, etc. (hereinafter “All People of Palestine”) were never given a choice on how they want their land to be governed, and (2) all contracts signed under duress are null and void.
    The biggest problem in Palestine is that the Zionist regime never offered a choice to All People of Palestine on how they want to govern their land because the Zionist regime cannot exist as a democratic entity. If there was ever any democratic process in Palestine, Zionists would have been outvoted and the Zionist regime would have never existed. That is why the Zionist regime is the occupier because it does not offer choice (i.e. democracy), but instead imposes its regime (i.e. occupies). Imagine if Russians would simply occupy a town in the U.S. where they are in significant numbers and attempt to create a Russian state there without giving the rest of the Americans living there a choice. Imagine then if they would try to institute a “peace agreement” that would attempt to legitimize their occupation. The “peace agreement” would logically and legally be illegitimate because the Americans were not given a choice.

    Under all countries’ laws, any contract is null and void if it is signed under duress. The current Palestine “peace agreement” process reminds me of The Godfather movie where the mafia boss (i.e. the Zionist regime) made a guy “an offer he could not refuse” by placing a gun (i.e. Zionist conventional and nuclear arsenal) to his head and making him sign the contract. Like the mafia boss’ offer, any “peace agreement” other than the choice for All People of Palestine is a crime, and the contract is legally null and void.

    The bottom line is that All People of Palestine never wanted to divide their land into artificial two states the way the occupation and this “peace agreement” attempt to divide it. From the beginning of the Zionist regime to its unavoidable end, All People of Palestine and the region never wanted the Zionist regime and they do not want it even more after all the atrocities the Zionist regime committed. I just cannot believe how the Zionist regime can be so ignorant to think that this or any other “peace agreement” that does not allow people to choose how they want to be governed will last and ensure its people’s survival. The Zionist regime fails to realize that no matter if it succeeds in muscling this “peace agreement” by unspeakable historic coercion tens of millions of moral people around the world will oppose it until it is corrected, and until justice and free choice prevail. Also, ever increasing number of Jewish people are realizing that Zionism is becoming a destructive force for them and are leading the global resistance to it.

    All who oppose the Zionist regime please STOP calling it “Israel” Every time you do it you reward the occupation of Palestine. Name “Israel” implies a state on the occupied territory. Call the occupiers what they really are: the Zionist regime. This way, every time you refer to it, you will imply its temporary nature (the nature of all occupying regimes). Encourage your fellow comment posters to use the name Zionist regime as well. We must also be categorically against generalizing, and recognize that many Jews are against the crimes the Zionist regime is committing in their names, and that many Jews are leading the global resistance to it. They should be proud. I wish that they finally find piece wherever they choose to live (including Palestine) through a peaceful democratic process as opposed to the Nazi-style occupation the current Zionist regime is using

    It appears that sharing and reposting others’ comments is becoming a trend. You can definitely copy, repost, or email mine to anyone including lobbying senators, state representatives and any other public officials who shape our country’s foreign policies.

    The main Zionist claim is that they have a supreme right to some of Palestinian territory because they lived there thousands of years ago. Let’s examine the core and real nature of this claim.

    Firstly, this claim is mistaken and selfish in its core concept because Zionists fail to recognize that history is a continuum and that there were other people living in majority in Palestine before the Jews and also after the Jews. Zionists simply cut history at a convenient point for them and claim ancestral ties to the land as of that convenient point.

    Secondly, whatever the claim, it is beyond absurd to try to shape modern world based on thousands of years old maps. Imagine if the rest of the world would be reshaped by who was on the land thousands of years ago. It would cause horrific wars, countless refugees, and unimaginable human suffering, exactly what is happening in Palestine.

    Thirdly and most disturbing, Zionist goal was to establish a Jewish state wherever possible. Palestine may have been a preference, but Palestine was not the only location that Zionists planned as their state in modern times. Another location was Argentina where Jews have been migrating for hundreds of years for the purpose of establishing a state. Also, locations in Europe were on the list and that’s why the Catholic Church was killing/expelling Jews since Roman times (read the history of the Holly Inquisition). Whatever the location, Zionist plan was to simply occupy the people living on the land even if that would mean imposing a regime worst than Nazi Germany’s from which they escaped. And Zionists would just use a different ideological coloring than the one used in Palestine in the attempt to rationalize the occupation.

    In conclusion, the main claim on which the Zionist regime is built in Palestine is erroneous, selfish, and a lie. I am categorically against generalizing, and recognize that many Jews are against the crimes the Zionist regime is committing and that many Jews are leading the global resistance to it. They should be proud

    Zionism: Jewish national movement, Just as the ANC African national Council & other national movements. You don't have to be jewish to be a zionist. when the jews were exiled in Babylon they wanted to return to Zion. Zion is referred to in the bible over 150 times, jerusalem is mentioned over 800 times. Almost one million Jews were forced out of the Arab-World from the end of world War two starting in 1945 and ending in the 1970s, today barely 7,000 jews remain in the arab-world, the majority in Morocco and to a far lesser degree in Tunisia, this is ethnic cleansing. Today the majority of the jewish population of israel consists of those Jews and their descendants. of the approx. 130,000 arabs that remained in Israel in 1948, today they form around (20% of the total Israeli population ie. they now number 1.4 million.
