The Palestinians’ Case Against Israel Is A Genocidal Lie


The ad below appears in today’s New York Times.  This half-page ad exposes the Palestinian case against Israel for what it is.  Nothing but lies.  We have run ads similar to this on a number of college campuses this Spring to counter the “Apartheid Weeks”, the rise of the Muslim Student Associations and the dramatic rise of anti-Semitism in our Universities.

The Freedom Center is committed to defending Israel and what they stand for, and to fight anti-Semitism, not only on the campuses, but in our government, the media and in society at large.

    Bravo Freefom Center. I’m surprised that the NY Slimes allows truth every now and then. I can’t wait to hear how they cover that demonic monster Bin Laden. I bet their obit will claim he was a man with a song in his heart. When they dumped his carcass at sea, I hope it wasn’t in a fishing zone.

    So-long Alakim Bin Laden you son of a jackel. You got what you deserved. Obama, I can’t believe I am thanking you for how you handled payback.

    That is how the Nazi and communists function. The Arab Muslims have billions of $ to waste. They should be sued for plagiarism.

    Excellent ad…and well-timed I might add.
    Well done. This should also be published in the major Canadian news services as we face the same threat here. Our University campuses have been overrun by Islamist MSA and Leftist students and professors.

    Put it on Face book, Twiter, My space…everywhere citizens will be able to see it. MAybe open some eyes for a change.

    This should be no surprise to anyone, but Hamas leaders condemn the killing of Osama Bin Laden:
    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/05/02/hamas-lea

    Hams described Bin Laden as "a Muslim and Arabic warrior" and prays that bin Laden's "soul rests in peace." Who would have thought Hamas would describe a mass murdered in a positive light?

    And Israel is expected to reasonably make peace with these maniacs?

    • Sammy Finkelman

      Actually this is kind of a surprise to me because they've avoided doing anything like that till now. Must be somebody is having trouble finding people to condemn it 9although now it started in Pakistan)

  • ObamaYoMoma

    I agree with everything in the ad except for the last paragraph. The permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel has nothing whatsoever to do with being Arab. Indeed, the Iranians are Persians and not Arabs, the Druze are Arabs, yet they are not trying to destroy Israel, Christian Arabs also aren’t trying to destroy Israel, and in fact half of Israel’s population of Jews are of Arab descent. Hence, the notion that no peace exists between Arabs and Jews is demonstrably false, as being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel.

    However, mainstream orthodox Islam has everything to do with the permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel, and it also has everything to do with respect to all other permanent and perpetual genocidal jihads being waged against all unbelievers around the world, not only just against Jewish unbelievers in Israel, but also Buddhist unbelievers in Thailand, Hindu unbelievers in Kashmir, Jammu, and Mumbai, Christian unbelievers in the Philippines, Atheist unbelievers in Chechnya and Russia, Christian Serb unbelievers in Bosnia and Kosovo, Christian and animist unbelievers in the Ivory Coast, and any and all unbelievers around the world. Indeed, what do Jews have in common with Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Atheists, Christian Serbs, and animists where Islam is concerned? They are all considered to be unbelievers and therefore the enemies of Islam.

    Hence, when you characterize the permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel as being just a conflict between Arabs and Israel, you are also fostering and bolstering the false narrative that has caused so many millions of people around the world to misconstrue the true nature of the events transpiring in Israel. Indeed, if people understood that the permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against Israel is because the Jews are unbelievers, they would more readily accept that all unbelievers and not just Jews are potential victims of jihad.

    Therefore, the last paragraph should be rewritten like the following:

    There is one reason and one reason alone there is no peace between Muhammadans and Israel, and that is because the Jews are unbelievers, as the main goal of mainstream orthodox Islam is to subjugate all unbelievers into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia.

      The Jews in Israel are of Arab descent? Are you mad? The Jews have lived in the lands which were conquered by the Arabs for thousands of years before Arabs even dreamt of Islam and conquest. The Oriental Jews in Israel were forced to leave the "Arab" lands when Israel got its independance.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        I agree and apologize. Nevertheless, the point I was making still stands. Arabs aren't at war because of being Arabs but because of Islam.

      • Sammy Finkelman

        ObamaYoMoma meant: The permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel has nothing whatsoever to do with the jihadists being Arab.

        Actually this is not quite true because for around 30 years there was not much of a religious component to it.

        It has to do with Saudi Arabia not wanting any democracy in the region.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Indeed, I like the following version far better because it reflects reality far more accurately:

    The Palestinian Case Against Israel Is Based on a Genocidal Lie

    The Palestinian Authority on the West Bank and the Hamas Government of Gaza both claim that Israel is “Occupied Territory.”

    This is a lie.

    Israel does not occupy “Palestine.” When Israel was created in 1948, there was no Palestine to occupy. There has never been a political entity, state or country called Palestine in the Middle East.

    The derivation of the name “Palestine” is Roman and not Arab. It was a name affixed to the Jewish homeland as an insult and a punishment when Rome conquered Jerusalem and dispersed most of the Jews who lived there to the four corners of the globe.

    The land of which Israel now stands was part of the Turkish Empire and had been for 400 years. The Turks are not Arabs and there was never a province, nor an entity in the Turkish Empire called “Palestine.”

    In fact virtually no Arabs call themselves “Palestinians” until 1964, the year the “Palestine Liberation Organization” was created. The goal of the PLO, as expressed in its charter, was not to liberate Palestinian Arabs from foreign rule but to destroy the Jewish state.

    In 1949 Jordan annexed the West Bank and Egypt occupied Gaza.

    But the annexation of the so-called Palestinian homeland by these two powers called forth no protests from the Islamic world. In 1964, Jordan ruled the West Bank and Egypt ruled Gaza, but the PLO did not call for the liberation of the West Bank or Gaza. It only called for the destruction of “Zionists entity.”

    It is true that the Muhammadans of the West Bank and of Gaza are suffering. But they are suffering because of sixty years of Islamic aggression, sixty years of Islamic rejection of peace, and sixty years of permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad to destroy the Jewish State. They are suffering because whenever the Muhammadans of the West Bank and Gaza were given the opportunity to hold free elections, they elected corrupt and terrorist regimes to rule over them.

    Throughout human history, people have suffered deprivation and oppression. But never in history has a people waged a calculated jihad on women and children, and honored the cold-blooded murderers as heroes and martyrs, as the so-called Palestinians now do.

    The lie that Israel “occupies” Palestine is genocidal in nature. The slogan that flows from it – “Palestine Must Be Free to the River to the Sea” – is a demand that the Jewish state and its citizens must disappear.

    There is one reason and one reason alone there is no peace between Muhammadans and Israel, and that is because the Jews are unbelievers, as the main goal of mainstream orthodox Islam is to subjugate all unbelievers into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia.

  • nina

    Oh how beautiful and true. If only more people could read your words. I like your use of Muhammedans. They don't like being addressed as Muhammedans. Why?

  • Sammy Finkelman

    There are several problems with this ad. I will give them in order of occurance, not importance.

    1) The title is not good. You never get to the genocidal nature of the lie untuil almost the end. Secondly it is nto really the Palestinian case. That recognizes them as the opponents, but actually this is a mainly an Arab case and one of teh lies is that the dispute is between israel and "the Palestinians" You go ahead and deny there is a Palestine and then you admit that there are Palestinians and what's more you make them the instigators of this all?

    And the thing that is genocidal is not the case against Israel, but the implied remedy.

    The title should say: The Case Against Israel is a tissue of lies and the solution implied is genocidal.

    To be continued

    .

    • Sammy Finkelman

      Make that: The Case Against Israel is Nothing But Lies, and the Only Possible "Remedy" is Genocidal.

      • Sammy Finkelman

        Maybe better: The Case Against Israel is Nothing but Genocide Supporting Lies.

        Then detail how ALL KINDS of lies are told, not just about the origin of Israel, but constant lies about what Israel is doing – and that the ultimate goal can only be to justify war and mass murder – and sporadic acts of murder are always called resistance and NEVER said to be morally wrong by any Arab in public.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    2) When you say there has been no political entity named Palestine, it shuld say:

    There never was an independent political entity, state or country called Palestine in the Middle East There was no political entity named Palestine of any sort until 1920, with the possible exception of the Roman and Byzantine Empire.

    • Sammy Finkelman

      You could also say you say there has been no modern political entity named Palestine "until now" or "until very recently" or "until 2005" or "until 1920" or maybe something that indicates not even now.

      Students will be familar with a place called Palestine. News agency stories from Gaza are datelined: "Gaza, Palestine" Many Arab states have recognized a Palestine and they issue passports. The US government maybe recognizes a place called Palestine also.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    3) Palestine is not exactly a Roman name. The Emperor Hadrian renamed Judea Palestine after the Bar Cochba revolt and this name passed into Christianity. the name exiosted before. Or at least it occurs in translations of Herodotus. It originally applied to the area along the coast near Gaza and Ashkelon. (I know you heard that it was Roman but taht is the result of people just repeating propaganda over and over again) This should also mention it is of Christian derivation, not Moslem, European not Arab or Turkish. If Zionists in 1919 had not persuaded the victorious allies to separate out "Palestine" there would be no palestine.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    4) Virtually no Arabs called themselves "Palestinians" until (November) 1974, not 1964.

    It was the Rabat conference of 20 Arab states that created the Palestinian people and declared that Yasir Arafat was their leader. At the same time, King Hussein of Jordan gave u the right to represent them. Before that, since 1948, there had only been "Palestinian refugees" but they were not "Palestinians." All Palestinian refugees before that had been Jordanian citizens if they lived in areas ruled by King Hussein.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    5) It is NOT true that the Arabs of the West Bank and Gaza are suffering. Don't say that!

    What is true is that they are living under very irregular political arrangements with no end in sight. They also come under frequent suspicion, and Israeli self-defense actions sometimes result in the deaths of innocent people.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    6) Whenever they were given the opportunity to vote, the only realistic alternatives were corrupt and terroristorganizations.

  • Sammy Finkelman

    7)Tthe slogan that "“Palestine Will be Free From the River to the Sea" is genocidal in nature because it is a demand that the Jewish state and its citizens must disappear. And just where to? It is not like French Algeria. There is no other homeland to go to.

    We also see the genocidal nature of case against Israel in the tactics used against it, and in the fact that they are opposed to teaching children about the Holocaust ( in a way that implies the Holocaust was a very bad human rights violation)

    David,
    Thank you for publishing the truth and especially for being brutally honest.
    There were no Muslims in AD 600. Jews and Christians occupied all areas around the Mediterranean Sea at that time, including present-day Israel, Lebanon, and Syria. (It takes only ten minutes to look up this fact of history on the Net.) The Jews are NOT occupiers. Muslims have no claim whatsoever on the Holy Land. http://theheartofislam.wordpress.com
