Why They Didn’t Spare Vittorio Arrigoni

Pages: 1 2

To understand the death of this Italian activist, a few important facts  must be grasped: his death was triggered by the spurious way he mixed his humanitarian ideals with the cause of fundamentalism in Gaza, and by the fact that he mixed his life with that of his potential enemies, whom he considered to be his best friends. But fundamentalists do not have stable affinities. Only their interpretation of the Quran counts. Hamas in Gaza, where Arrigoni was killed, is a land ruled by awful, alien laws. Arrigoni loved the Palestinians, but he remained a total foreigner to them. It is for us inconceivable, even if you are a militant like Arrigoni, to live alongside those who fire missiles at civilians, wear belts packed with explosives, and hand out sweets when an Israeli family is killed in Itamar, including a three month-old baby, a four year-old child, and another of nine.

This is the crucial issue: when you go to Gaza, or Afghanistan, you have to realise that our conception of life is completely different from any Islamic political conception of life. You could be killed because you are Jewish, because you are Italian, or Christian, because you are an apostate, or a corrupt Westerner. The extremist mentality make no bones about it, and cancels out friends and allies. No matter how much you have worked against the “Zionist power” or how often you have called Zionists “rats” (and Arrigoni did this), nothing is of any worth if you break their law, a law which will remain unclear until the knife blade comes. Arrigoni was a fan of political Islamism because he was an enemy of the Jews, but this did not save him from a cruel execution in front of the camera, just like many other friends and enemies of Hamas,  or the “Islamic Jihad,” never mind the name.

So, it is intellectually disheartening and even dangerous that a demonstration in front of the Italian Parliament blamed Israel and Italy for Arrigoni’s death, or that the ISM, the pro-Palestinian NGO Arrigoni belonged to, attributed “moral responsibility to the State of Israel.” These reactions seem to be triggered only by ideological hatred. But what was more striking still, with sincerest respect for the president of the republic, was the statement of condolences which Giorgio Napolitano delivered. Instead of laying the blame on Islamic fundamentalism, he asked that “a negotiated solution be found to the conflict which sees bloodshed in the region.” With the same coherence, he could have invoked any good cause: the fight against world hunger, or child prostitution. Yet instead, Israel is being summoned to face some mysterious responsibility. However, the fault is only with Islamic fundamentalism — what is the point of dragging the pained witness and victim of Hamas terrorism into the equation?

    He sniveled and crawled and bowed and scraped, and kissed the IslamoCock, trying to ingratiate himself to The Mooze, and he died a coward's death for his trouble.

    If he had actually read the Koran, Sira, and Hadith, then he would have known that Islam is a machine that creates only Monsters.

    Sura 4:89 “seize the Muslims and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    His moment of truth must have killed him from the inside!
    What a deluded fool. No one is safe in the scorpion nest!

    The guy is a creep. If hisMuslim terrorist "buds" managed to saw off another three month old infant's head, he would have been passing out candy to the kids of Gaza.

    It was funny as hell and the irony made for a more pleasant Passover.

    • cheese_burger

      No… the guy *was* a creep… now he's just rotten meat.

      • Stephen

        The guy wasn't a creep, he just bought into the Euro Lib spin regarding Gaza and Israel. I'm a Jew, have friends in Israel and have the Right of Return to consider and really hate when people get off on tragic situations such as this death because it proves their point or on some level screams 'Told You So!'
        This sad murder will have no impact on media nor will not sway public opinion our way. This guy was naive but trying to make the world a 'better' place via hands on work. I'd like to see some of us do that for Israel as opposed to bashing a dead man.

        • cheese_burger

          I'm not a Jew, but I am a Friend of Israel and in general, respectfully disposed towards all Jews, simply because of the huge contributions they have made to humanity, especially as compared to the miserable, hate-filled contribution that Islam has pissed into the face of humanity.

          I am a long time (10+ years) student of Koran, Sira, Hadith, and the exceedingly rotten, poisonous fruit that is the *only* kind of fruit, that Islam has ever produced, or will ever be capable of producing.

          This creep was, at the very least, a groupie of sorts, sucking up the the Mooze… obeisance… down on his knees 'giving suck' (or succor) to the Beast Islam.

          He was not a Muslim, but he consorted with and supported, Islamic Monsters on an hourly basis. If you sleep with pigs, you end up smelling like one, and whoever consorts with Islamic Monsters… (and monsters are the only thing that Islam can reasonably be expected to produce, given the content of Koran, Sira and Hadith (the Islamic Trilogy) …will receive no sympathy from me.

          He gave aid, comfort and support to lying, murdering Monsters… Muslims. They murdered in Infidel ass. Hopefully, the Act of Treason he committed against humanity, by supporting Islam, will inspire non-Muslims to harden their hearts against Islam, and all Muslims.

          "For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes."

          The Tree of Islam… what sort of fruit does it bring forth? Read Koran, Sira and Hadith.

    • Mack

      Yes it's so heart-warming thinking about those kind and compassionate Israelis – you know, the ones who drop white phosphorous on children.

      • cjk

        If you don't have the truth behind you then you have to lie.
        Go Mack-off somewhere in your mommies basement.

      • cgerber

        Hey Mack Like Stalin and Lenin used to say about people like him " Just a useful idiot" Now no longer useful. The greatest tyrants Killer in human history, Mao, Stalin, Hitler Pol Pot, Idi Amin.  Those guys are all dead, Now you get Islam (Hamas, Sunnis, Shiites.) And all the sick actors that hide behind that name. Mack you lack history and knowledge and definitely read too much propaganda. You really need to start reading… and pls not the party line. You get jest.

      • MixMChess

        Mack you are a liar, the International Red Cross confirmed that Israel did not improperly or illegally use white phosphorous on civilians in Gaza. Of course, Hamas used white phosphorus as a weapon against Israeli civilians. Care to condemn the "heart-warming and compassionate" Hamas terrorists?

  • Chezwick_mac

    How pathetically sad…to wait until your last moment on earth before you're capable of an epiphany. No doubt, Arrigoni's epiphany – if he had one at all – was NOT that he'd been rooting for the wrong side all these years, that would have been asking too much. After all, leftism is religion, every bit as much as any other, with sacred cows, catechisms, and the like.

    No, Arrigoni's epiphany was merely that he was in the presence of evil. But like every other leftist, he understood NOT the source of the evil…for he was constitutionally incapable of connecting the dots.

  • BLJ

    I shed no tears for this fool. However, it still amazes me that people do not see Islam for what it really is. There is no amount of poltical correctness that will change the fact that Islam is evil. Always has been, always will be.

    WAKE UP!

    izlam is izlam
    This fact never fails to bewilder the self-deluded Westerner

  • Mark Shepler

    I think what drives the likes of Arrigoni is a far more basic and ancient impulse- good old fashioned misanthropy gussied up with high-sounding talk. But hating one's own is the sweetest…and safest…hate of all so now, after a century of hating their own, western liberals find themselves standing with the antithesis of everything they supposedly believe.

    • Nestor James

      Great analysis. It must be something to be a leftist and find yourself standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the most evil people on earth, simply because they share your hatred of the United States of America – especially the Republican part of it. That's what it's all about, right? The enemy of my enemy is my friend. I hope some people right about now are taking a good look in the mirror and asking themselves if they are not bending over backward to the point of becoming traitors to their own kind.

    Islam the cult of death takes one of its cheer leaders.

  • LindaRivera

    "Giorgio Napolitano delivered. Instead of laying the blame on Islamic fundamentalism, he asked that “a negotiated solution be found to the conflict which sees bloodshed in the region.”

    Napolitano covered for Islam. If only he had the ethics and courage to tell the truth! It is Islamo Nazis who attack and slaughter innocents all over the world. Western leaders betray every victim of Islam and the entire Free World — Western leaders demand for an Islamic terror state implant in vulnerable little Israel is immoral and evil.

    Israel, Never SURRENDER Jewish Holy Land to global jihad!

  • Michael Sharp

    If only the rest of these leftist ass clowns bought a first class ticket to Gaza maybe we would see some sensible voices take over in the field of Middle Eastern discourse.

  • Martin

    The comments on this site are eerily reminiscient of the kind of comments Hitler used to make about the Jews.

    • Nestor James

      Yeah, except the Jews weren't committing daily acts of terrorism around the world. Do you see the difference? Do you see the lie you are perpetrating by making the statement you made?

    • ziontruth

      Yes, I remember those days. Everyone came to hate the Jews because a group of Jewish terrorists flew two biplanes into the Eiffel Tower.

      What? You mean it didn't happen? Darn it, there goes another analogy in the trash!

    • SpiritOf1683

      Those same Jews you would love to send to the gas chamber yourself.

    I love that scene in that Gene Simmons-Rutger Hauer movie…(sorry, I forget the title)…Gene Simmons is a mass murdering terrorist who has been caught by Hauer…Gene Simmons bleats, "I am a freedom fighter, I am a soldier of God"….Hauer: "No you're not….you are just a fly on a pile of SH-T. "

    Fact is, there is no denying that Israel used White Phosphorous in its invasion of the Gaza Strip. Where it gets tricky and the media has a certain amount of culpability is where it was used and how. There is nothing in the Geneva Convention that allows the use of these weapons, so Israel has a political right to use them if it deems necessary. While I don't necessarily agree on using them personally, I am not in Israel, so my opinion doesn't necessarily count. However, that said, the issue isn't that they used them, its where. They used them in Gaza…fine. The problem that Mack has in the earlier list is that he isn't noting that Hamas has frequently, and consistantly used women and children as human shields, and strategically places them in areas of any importance. That way, when the kids get blown away, or the women burned to death, they have a rallying cry.
    Hasn't anyone ever noticed that when it comes to things like that, that there always seems to be a conveniently placed video camera to film all the horror? No?
    And no one can tell me they don't. I've been to the Middle East on numerous occasions, and have travelled in some questionable areas. I know exactly what these people do. I've seen it with my own eyes. The war in Lebanon was a classic example. Hezbollah intentionally placed over 100 civilians into a building, calling it a bomb shelter, but knowing that the Israeli's looked at it as a weapons cache. The bomb that took out about 100 of these people blew the building apart, and how convenient that a HD camera just happened to be placed on an adjacent building to record their demise.
    So the point I make is this: it doesn't matter what weapons the Israeli's are using… they could throw rocks… those they are fighting will use whatever means at their disposal, including human shields, to ensure they can maximize the body count, and reap the ratings winfall when their strategically placed cameras record the carnage.

    • SpiritOf1683

      Next time, the Israelis have to go into the Gaza Strip or Lebanon they ought to use napalm to burn out the terrorists. And there's no such thing as an innocent civilian when your country is under attack.
