Israel and the Moral Midgets of American Academe


American_Studies_Association_1A province of the academic Lilliput called the American Studies Association has voted to boycott Israeli academics because of “the Israeli occupation of Palestine” and “the systematic discrimination against Palestinians.” The well-earned criticism of this vote is probably the most attention this organization has ever received outside the parochial precincts of the American university, where “conferences” of like-mindedness pedants regularly gather together to read papers to each other and ritualistically affirm their fossilized political and intellectual orthodoxy. Indeed, what this vote tells us about the corruption of American higher education is more worthy of comment than its impact on Israel’s intellectual life, considering that “American Studies” is a political rather than a scholarly enterprise unlikely to concern genuine Israeli scholars. Martin Kramer’s response gets it just about right: “Boycott me, please.”

The first thing revealed by this vote is the massive ignorance of history, including current events, that permeates American universities. Most obvious is the rote repetition of the phrase “Israeli occupation of Palestine.” This phrase is historically meaningless. There is no occupation in legal terms, because there has never existed a country to be occupied. The territory under question last existed formally as a province of the Ottoman Empire, which has long settled into the dustbin of history because it miscalculated badly and allied with the Central Powers in World War I. The legal disposition, through a U.N. resolution, of this territory by the mandatory powers that replaced the Ottomans after World War I was rejected and violently contested by the Arab nations that attacked Israel in 1948.

Until 1967, this territory was controlled by Jordan, whose annexation of it was never recognized internationally. It came under control of Israel as a result of the defensive Six Day War. Without that event, it is likely that despite international disapproval, the territory would have in time become part of Jordan according to the ancient wisdom that possession is nine-tenths of the law. After all, who boycotts China over its absorption of Tibet? If after their victory in 1967 Israel had behaved as most states do in such circumstances, she would have annexed the territory that by the legitimacy of history is part of Israel, and that was fairly won on the battlefield. And again following the usual practice of most states, Israel then would have expelled all the Arabs. This historically has been the common practice that no one other than the losers complained about after other wars. One and a half million Greeks, for example, were booted out of Muslim Turkey in 1923, from lands their ancestors had inhabited for nearly 3 thousand years, while half a million Muslims, descendants of invaders or Christians converted under the shadow of the sword, were sent to Turkey. Or consider the 12 million Germans kicked out of Eastern Europe after World War II. That’s what happens when a people start a war and lose.

And don’t forget, the Arabs living in the ancient Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria are the descendants of conquerors and occupiers, or recent immigrants drawn by the economic development by Jewish settlers. By any measure of historical justice or coherent thinking, what the historically challenged now call the “occupied West Bank” would have become part of Israel. The only accurate description of this territory is “disputed,” its final disposition dependent on successful negotiations that the so-called Palestinians have never engaged in sincerely, since their ultimate goal is not their own state but the destruction of Israel. And apparently the ASA agrees with that aim, as it refers not to the “occupation” of the West Bank, but of “Palestine,” which the Arabs consider encompasses all the territory from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

The same incoherence is evident in the phrase “discrimination against Palestinians.” There is no such thing as “Palestinians.” “Palestine” was the name given to Judea by the Romans after the destruction of the country in 136 A.D., an act of damnatio memoriae by which the Romans attempted to obliterate any trace of the existence of an enemy. Thus they renamed the country after the Philistines, a people that in effect no longer existed. Later Palestine was an administrative unit of the Ottoman Empire, and “Palestinian” denoted anyone living there, including Jews, just as today “Californian” does not refer to a distinct national or ethnic group but to anyone living in California. The Arabs today called Palestinians are not significantly different ethnically, linguistically, or culturally from the Arabs living in Jordan, Lebanon, or Syria.

If you have any doubt, listen to Farouk Kaddoumi, head of the PLO Political Department in 1977. “Jordanians and Palestinians are considered by the PLO as one people,” he told Newsweek magazine. Earlier, after the Six Day War, Executive Council of the PLO member Zouhair Muhsin said, “There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity… Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel.” The idea of a “Palestinian” nation has been a device for promoting the incremental war against Israel, appealing to ignorant Westerners and their own cultural ideals of “ethnic self-determination” or nationhood, concepts alien to traditional Muslim ideas of the ummah, the world-wide community of Muslims united not by blood or nationality but by religion.

This tactic, of course, has been wildly successful, as the continuing duplicitous diplomacy over the “two-state solution,” and as the latest boycott by American academics show. For the latter, another bit of unexamined received wisdom contributes to their demonization of Israel, and that is the continuing currency of “colonialism” as a substitute for precise historical thinking. All that your typical American professor knows about colonialism is that it is a “bad thing” perpetuated by evil racist white Westerners seeking resources and markets from oppressed “peoples of color.” That most human communities with the power to do so have invaded and appropriated the lands of resources of others is a fact ignored by those who substitute epithets for thought. Indeed, if colonialism and imperialism are such serious evils, then Arab Muslims would head the list of malefactors, as their historical record of invasion, exploitation, and occupation from Spain to India demonstrates.

But don’t confuse professors with facts. They have supped from the poisoned chalice of Edward Said’s “orientalism.” His book of the same name, “a work of malignant charlantry,” as Robert Irwin calls it, has for 35 years shaped the beliefs of Western academics about the Middle East. As Martin Kramer writes in his analysis of Middle Eastern Studies programs, Said “rejected the idea of objective standards, disguised the vice of politicization as the virtue of commitment, and replaced proficiency with ideology.” From the Saidian perspective, then, Israel is a neo-colonialist outpost of the West, an agent of exploitation and oppression of the dark-skinned “other” in contrast to whom the West defines its racist superiority. Thus “every European,” Said alleged, “ in what he could say about the Orient, was consequently a racist, an imperialist, and almost totally ethnocentric.” Given this oppressive prejudice and blindness to historical crimes, the attacks by Middle Eastern Muslims on these imperialist incursions, particularly the state of Israel, is perfectly justified “resistance” not to be judged or condemned.

In Said’s work one finds the foundational gospel of the academic cult of cultural and intellectual relativism incoherently married to bigoted hatred of the West, the moral and historical idiocy on display in the ASA’s boycott and the hatred of Israel, the only liberal democracy in the region filled with illiberal regimes that scorn the human rights that spoiled American professors claim to uphold. Such political antics and the moral idiocy behind them are just one more symptom of the deep-seated rot undermining American universities.

    Best thing for Israel is to deport these creatures to Jordan, Lebanon or Egypt. Then Israel and the US part ways. US stop sending its fiats and Israel exploit the Med for natural gas and oil.

    Israel will have to use its oil and gas to buy arms.

    Israel will show the West how to deal with Islam or it will deal with your grandchildren.

    • BigSticksWalkSoftly

      Silver you are so true. Israel and the US should deport all unwanted people. Me and you think alike and I am proud to have a partner like you that is filled with hate. Together we can help bring segregation descrimination and apartheid all over the world. Long live israel.

        How’s your Red/Green Axis of Evil going?

        Airport checkpoints, separations walls, resistance to fascist socialism and islamofascism too oppressive for you and your jihadi pals?

        Good.

          You are my new best friend mr social screwer. Together we will hold our hate filled hands together and spread checkpoints all over red and green countries. It is our duty to show the savages how to lead a good cowboy capitalist life. We mustn’t be scared of towel headed rock throwers. Although we have nukes we must continue to be scared of all rock throwers. Checkpoints for all and don’t trust anyone, especially those savage camel riders. They are so scary.

          • Moa

            You have never read the Qur’an and hadiths have you?

            You are speaking from a position of massive ignorance, annd even worse, you denigrate others who understand the layers of Islamic doctrine.

            Well, I suggest you go an read a single verse from the ahadith and a single verse from the Qur’an:

            1) hadith Sahih Muslim 6985
            This is a future command for the destruction of all Jews, anywhere in the World (not just Israel). It is “Sahih” (authentic) and from Mohammed – that means all Muslims *must* carry it out or become apostates.

            2) Sura 9, the famous verse of the Sword. Particularly 9:29, which gives the commandments for all Muslims to subjugate the World until the whole world says the Shahada. Again, every Muslim must wage jihad for this or become an apostate.

            Your great mistake is to presume that people oppose “camel jockeys” because they are racist. That simply demonstrates the unearned moral superiority you feel – and you boost your ego by making idiot statements on these forums. The only reason you think people are racist (despite Islam not being a race) is because you don’t even understand why people oppose Islam – because you are massively and shamefully ignorant of Islamic doctrines like “abrogation” and how it affects how the Qur’an is interpreted.

            Stop with your ignorant bigotry against those who actually understand Islamic Doctrine. Just because you know *nothing* about the subject does not mean others don’t. Instead, I suggest you listen carefully to the arguments they make as you may pick up *facts*. Once you understand *facts* then you can start to participate in the debate.

            Until then, your sarcasm is merely providing cover for the jihadis and other ignorant Leftists who perpetuate the same ignorant bigotry against truth-tellers that you have demonstrated. By defending evil it makes *you* evil. Stop it!

          • BigSticksWalkSoftly

            As an American Jewish tea partier I lump israel and Saudi and Iran together as religiously fanatic pariah states with nuclear capabilities or pursuits.

Give me am example of people in power who did NOT use race religion ethnicity nationality gender sexual orientation to justify oppressing other people’s money power land respect or ability to procreate. You my friend are on the side of totalitarian war momgering. God bless America. These ain’t about religion. 20% of Palestinians aren’t even Muslim. Case closed

          • Moa

            Thanks for clarifying.

            It’s great you are fiscally conservative. Thumbs up.

            It appears you are an isolatonist. I guess you are weak at history. In the past there was the “Monroe Doctrine” where the USA wanted to stay out of European affairs. This proved to be a massive failure because trouble always came to America in the end, even if you guys wanted to stay neutral. Even worse, by delaying action America always started in a worse position than if it has acted sooner and this cost more blood and money than was necessary. “A stitch in time saves nine”, yes?

            In short, your isolationist policy doesn’t work. Isolationism is discredited among anyone who knows any history of the 20th Century. It is promoted as a meme of Cultural Marxism as a ruse to break down “collective defense” and unfortunately has been adopted even by Conservatives. Note: there is a a difference between foreign “adverturism” and acting overseas if it is in “America’s interest” (which is Ted Cruz’s position – which I think is sensible).

            Since you identify as someone with Jewish ancestry I think it is important for you to know about the hadith Shahih Muslim 6985. It commands Muslims to kill *all* Jews, everywhere, no matter where they hide. That includes Israel-hating Jews in Brooklyn. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but this is a Sahih commandment from Mohammed – this is what is driving the genocide against Israel. Once the Muslims have disposed with Israel they do intend to come after the Jews in America.

            The Palestinians have a saying which you can see in grafitti all over the place, “First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday”. Do you know what this means? Probably not, because no one ever explains it to you. It means: “First comes [the genocide against those who worship on] Saturday, then comes [the subjugation of those who worship on] Sunday”. This is a message to remind themselves that first they killed the “descendants of apes and pigs” (Jews) who worship on Saturday, then they come after those who worship on Sunday, the “mushrikun” (idolators – Christians, Hindus, animists etc) and “kufr” (infidels – atheists, Buddhists, Westerners in general).

            Being an American Jew who hates Israel is no defense. They will kill you because Muslims are completely racist against Jews, no matter what you think as an individual they don’t care – they *hate* you for your race because Jews correctly saw Mohammed as an evil false prophet.

            Unless Enlightenment Civilization defeats Islam – and the defeat is not only on the battlefield but also ideologically by exposing the doctrines of Islam then you and I will be killed and subjugated (respectively) when the Islamic Mahdi and Isa come (who the Christians call the anti-Christ, and lead the Islamic Caliphate to destroy all non-Muslim civilizations, including your precious and completely delusional USA).

            > “You my friend are on the side of totalitarian war momgering.”

            False. America is fighting battles it does not need to, but completely ignoring the cultural battles that need to be fought against Cultural Marxism and evil Islamic doctrine.

            > “These ain’t about religion. 20% of Palestinians aren’t even Muslim.”
            The percentage used to be higher. The trend is always down. Notice how the Assyrians in Iraq are now facing extinction at the hands of Muslims? how the Jews of Baghdad have gone from a million to zero in a century? how the Turks refuse to talk about the million plus jihad genocide against Armenians? how Copts in Egypt are being slaughtered daily? how syrians citizens of every kind are being slaughtered in the most horrific ways? who is doing the sluaghtering an why?

            They intend to expand the slaughter to the whole world. And you are happy to not oppose this – which means you consent to the evil – which makes you evil. Withdraw your consent!

          • BigSticksWalkSoftly

            Who are you scared of? Muslims?! Please. Euro white Christians caused their lands to be the most violent and deathly in all of human history in the 20th century. Who are Zionists gonna be pant wetting over next season ? The Chinese? Maybe India? Eventually the scapegoats are going to run to out.

            You can shove it with your bible quotes. Read a good bible Torah or Quran to see the violence called for of others. It’s actually something they all have in common. Only brain dead zombies from all sides believe the Palestinian Israel issue is mainly about religion. ITS THE ECONOMY STUPEED.
            The great Israel human rights activist Israel shahak’s book called Jewish history Jewish religion provides a concise read on the Torah words espousing violence on others. None of which I’m proud of. Am I really expected to curse at the dead souls of those in Christian cemeteries whenever I drive by one? Quite senseless hate by another simple passage of an over exaggerated abrahamic book.
            I love isolationism! Complete and unadulterated. That way it’s easier to see who the true aggressors are. Case closed welfare queen.

            The funny thing is your anti-Semitism and anti-Europeanism leads you to believe that the jihad is a recent phenomenon that started with the restoration of Israel. Guess what dipstick, the jihad has been going on for *1400 years*. It started half a millenia before the first Crusades (which were a reaction to Muslim predations on defenseless Christian pilgrims). Your whole argument is fundamentally flawed, but you’re not smart enough to know it.

            > “You can shove it with your bible quotes.”
            LOL! how dumb are you! I can give you exact quotes from the *Qur’an and hadith* but you are too dumb to know the difference between the Qur’an, Torah and the Bible.

            issue is mainly about religion. ITS THE ECONOMY STUPEED. ”

            Nope, you’re the stupid one. It is most definitely about religion for the Arab Muslims. You should hear what they say in Arabic – especially when they are talking about what they want to do to ignorant US Jews like you.

          • BigSticksWalkSoftly

            Nothing you said is historically factual. Israel is the biggest socialized middle eastern country with a nationalist agenda while still pushing their commie kibbutzes all over the place. All while purposefully impeding Palestinian capitalism. Some American friend.
            If all the Arabs hated your peeps so much why didn’t they get booted out before they established their US funded safe house on stolen land? That would have been a lot more dramatic and effective.

        The clever Israelis are well ahead of the game here. They have the Dolphin class of six subs. My understanding is that these probably have torpedo launched cruise missiles that probably have “physics packages” on them.

        This gives Israel the “Samson Option”. If facing defeat or the Iranians launch a suprise nuclear ballistic missile attack (with Hezbollah launching its 70000+ rockets to saturate Israeli ABM defences) then Israel has the option of using those submarines to “pull the whole Temple down” in the Middle East.

        Of course, the Israelis cannot stand the thought of hurting children, even those of their enemies, so they hope they never have to use that capabilty.

        ps. I remembered correctly, here’s the wikipedia article on them:
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphin-class_submarine

        pps. for reader’s who didn’t understand the parent post, “boomer” is UN Navy slang for a nuclear ballistic missile submarine.

        • BigSticksWalkSoftly

          Yes nuclear armed submarines that are supported by American welfare money may allow good defense against palestinian rock throwers or just burn the whole neighborhood down. Does Iran really have any incentive to attack israel so flagrantly? Typically right and left wing military welfare propaganda

          • Moa

            Please let me clear up some things for you. I hope you listen with an open mind and think about it:

            > “Yes nuclear armed submarines that are supported by American welfare
            money may allow good defense against palestinian rock throwers or just
            burn the whole neighborhood down. ”

            1) The Palestinian rock throwers have been targeting cars with Israeli citizens – any citizen. Many little children have been killed by the rock throwers, including some children under one year old. The Palestinians are deliberately targetting such children. So my question to you is: “Just because they didn’t use Kalashnikovs this time, is such targetting of children with just as lethal rocks still morally ok in your point of view”? please divorce your answer with whether or not you think the Israelis do the same, I would like you to think about and focus on the morality of the Palestinian action in isolation. Hint: this is mostly to see whether your current thinking holds Palestinians to a lower moral standard than you hold Israelis – the end justifies the means kind of stuff.

            2) American “welfare” money. US *military* aid to Israel follows a pattern of US aid to many countries (eg. Egypt, before Obama blatantly threw his lot in with the jihadi Muslim Brotherhood, Jordan, Turkey etc). This pattern is that US politicians promise miltary aid (credits), paid for by US taxpayers, to buy weapons and service from US arms manufacturers, with US allied miltaries receiving the arms. The benefits are: US politicians get votes from those who support the allied country. The US State Department gets an ally favorably disposed to the US. The US military gets a stronger ally who can help them in operations, or at least block US enemies. The US arms manufacturers get a lot of sales. The foreign country gets stronger defense. And the US taxpayer foots the bill – hopefully they are happy about that if they like the country the aid is going to.

            Notice who are the primary beneficiaries of the public purse here? it is mostly about US self-interest.

            Your meme is false. US aid to Israel is mostly about US self-interest by politicians, the State Department, the Defense Department, arms manufacturers, and the US citizenry. The considerable side benefit for the ally is a factor but not the dominant one (which is why we saw Obama pull aid from the Egyptians just as the Egyptians staged a popular democratic revolution against islamofascism).

            > “Does Iran really have any incentive to attack israel so flagrantly?”

            Since 1979 the Iranian Government has organized demonstrations *every single day* that chant the following: “Death to America! Death to Israel! Death to the West!”. You don’t do this *every day* for 34 years just for kicks. You do it because you mean it. Really mean it. Yes, I understand that from a Western perspective this defies reason. But what you appear to fail to understand is that the IRanians do not have a Western Perspective. They have their Iranian, theocratic and most importantly *Shia Islamic* perspective. I’ve already pointed out the verses of the Qur’an and hadith that motivate those daily statements. They feel they are being true to Islam, true to themselves and true to us by pointing out *exactly* what they intend to do to us. In Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq and Africa they are already demonstrating in their daily beheadings, bombings and slaughter exactly what they intend to bring to Israel, America and the West.

            Why is it so hard for you to understand that the Iranians have been saying what they mean, and meaning what they say for 34 years – because their (satanic moon god) Allah commands this, and they cannot defy the commands of Allah without becoming apostates?

            Why do you deny the Truth – that the Iranians are saying what they mean?

            Why can you not escape the limitations of your own Western thought and think about Eastern thought? If you Lefties want to be “multicultural” you have to get past your platitudes and start *learning* about what the Easterners really think (which is what they say to each other), and what have in store for us.

            > “Typically right and left wing military welfare propaganda”

            Rubbish. By invoking this accusation it allows you to continue to be intellectually lazy and assume a false and undeserved air of moral superiority. That way you never have to learn anything about the arguments for and against Islam or any of the totalitarian ideologies (the Cultural Marxism memes that you have been spouting are also part of totalitarian ideologies).

            Here’s a question for you – a genuine question that I have an open mind for your answer: “Why should we discount what the Iranians have been saying daily for 34 years with regards to their intentions against non-Muslims?”. In short, what makes you think the Iranians are lying with their absolutely consistent message?

          • BigSticksWalkSoftly

            I’m not here to condone violence by anyone or any side. However just a couple days ago an Israeli terrorist got sniped for enforcing the garza siege. Sad case I know. How did the Israeli welfare state respond? Cowardly bombing a 2 year old girl to death and her innocent family. Who’s life are you valuing? Where’s your allegiance? In America actions speak louder than words. I don’t care if the whole Zulu nation chanted death to America every morning noon in night. In American we have a saying : sticks and stones may allow Israeli zionists to break bones but words will never hurt me. Again thanks for the example of backward countries trying to brainwash their citizenry. It’s not going to fly here in America. Israel Iran and Saudi can have their own religious fanatic orgy by themselves for all I care without American welfare. To answer your question(s): Israel has absolutely little to no incentive to make a just peace while Iran has no incentive to extend a peaceful hand independent of the rest of the backward and oppressive governments in the neighborhood who are busy with their mind control shenanigans. Only Israel is in a position to enforce peace

            “Cowardly bombing a 2 year old girl to death….”

          Many of my college essays and research papers were written with that in mind. Even if my work was of low quality, as long as I presented a radical viewpoint, I would usually get a good grade.

          For example, I once wrote an essay praising Cuba’s allegedly wonderful health care system mere hours before it was due – no rough draft, no real research. The paper was a bunch of BS but it earned me an A.

            I call myself underprivileged because back in college I was labeled a person of privilege, despite being from a single parent, low income background. Simply put I am mocking those spoiled brats at my alma mater.

            Sounds like you were more concerned about your future grade as opposed to actually learning something. I am glad you have joined this discussion. You may actually learn a thing a two with no fear of sacrificing your academic standing. From my understanding teachers will say controversial statements to spur conversation. Maybe you were intimidated by this catholic priest and couldn’t man up enough to raise your hand, take another class, or report this “misinformation”. You are a typical left winger grade lover with no scruples who was probably traumatized as a kid by those scary and hairy palestinian catholic priests that are obviously rampant in American academia.

          • notalibfool

            Concerned about my future grade? Well, yes. Why would one pay a bunch of money for Ds and Fs?

            Actually, I did learn plenty, just not what the university intended. What did I learn? That people who spend their entire lives in school become detached from reality and cannot comprehend real-world issues.

            Learn a thing or two without sacrificing my academic standing? I graduated well over a decade ago and have completely severed ties with my alma mater.

            Intimidated by the priest/professor? Hardly. Take another class? Not possible at that time; it was required for my intended major and the priest/prof was the only one “teaching” it that semester. Just one of the joys of attending a small college.

            Most likely these professors say outrageous things out of ignorance. AN intelligent debate is not part of the plan. A PhD does not guarantee wisdom.

            I’m a typical left winger? That’s the first time in my life anyone has called me that. Award yourself a blue ribbon.

            Your knowledge is a bit outdated (assuming you had it to begin with), Israel is much more than Kibbutz. Israel is one of the world’s leaders in ABM Systems, satellite systems, R&D (4.7% of GNP) high-tech (4,00) and biotech (1,500) startup, companies on NASDAQ (80). In 2006, more Israel patents (1,188) were granted in the United States than Chinese (366), India (354) and Russia (268) combined. Compare that to the fact that more books were translated to Spanish than the total number of book translated to Arabic since the 700 AD.

          • notalibfool

            Thanks. I have every intention of continuing to support the middle east’s only stable democracy, which also happens to be the only country in the region to be genuinely seeking peace.

            No one cares what you think of my academic life. I wish my professors had valued real learning but mostly all they cared about was pushing a sick agenda. Besides, at least I did go to college. Have you completed 8th grade yet?

        • notalibfool

          Example:

          Just before 9/11 my Education professor (who was also a Catholic priest) went on some rant accusing the US of killing 25,000 Iraqi children each year through our sanctions. No evidence provided, of course.

          Oddly enough he failed to mention how many innocents were murdered by Saddam Hussein’s regime. Fortunately for the students that was the last semester Father Dumb-Dumb taught there.

          • notalibfool

            Also Professor/Father Dumb-Dumb neglected to discuss the children killed in the 1980s when Saddam Hussein’s military bombed Iranian schools.

          • Drakken

            I had one of my profs have a complete meltdown and throw a lectern at me, and went completely bonkers when I laughed at said prof. Needless to say when said prof failed me, I took it to the Dean, and in the most polite of Marine Corps manners persuaded him that it was in his best interest to give me a B in the course, funny, he saw things my way. College was nothing more than a hoop to jump through to get to where I needed to go, I learned more in my years in the USMC than I ever learned in college and I spit at my alma matter every time a fund raising event comes about.

  • DontMessWithAmerica

    It is difficult to figure out what it is that motivates these low grade academics to boycott Israelis. Envy may be a part of it. Sheer ignorance which usually goes hand in hand with anti-Semitism, is another part. Ironically, this group is headed by a midget wetback who managed to get a degree. Perhaps he feels he has Arab roots going back to pre-Inquisition days in Spain and thus identifies with the towel heads.

            Not ALL Palestinians call for Israel’s destruction. Just some. However ALL of Israel’s morally weak and historically inaccurate hasbara propaganda calls for left wing fascist separation and Palestinian genocide. As an American tea partier it’s easy to see the true underdog in the face of over bearing government red tape that restricts economic development and impedes on an individuals right to bear arms or practice their religion. Welcome Israel to the orgy along with Iran Saudi and our trending US.

          • BigSticksWalkSoftly

            Yes many Palestinians are into human rights and recognizing Israel as they should so thanks for highlighting these facts.

            > “Yes many Palestinians are into human rights and recognizing Israel as they should so thanks for highlighting these facts.”

            False. Please name those Palestinians. Any Palestinian who claims to be for human rights does so in English and never in Arabic. Because if they do so in Arabic they end up dead.

            > “What happens when a Christian politician requests to place a Christmas
            tree on Israeli government property? DENIED. This happened a few weeks
            again. Totalitarianism on steroids is what it looks like from my side
            of the pond. Take your “dual” allegiance elsewhere.”

            Well, did you not notice Muslim imams around the world banning Muslims from wishing Christians a Merry Christmas? This is because Islam sees Christianity as polytheism because of the Christian doctrine of The Trinity. All Christians are “mushrikun” (idolators) and equivalent to pagan Hindus or Zoroastrians. That’s why tens of thousands of Christians are slaughtered today in Syria and Nigeria and Mali and Central African Republic and Indonesia and Malaysia and Thailand. Because Islam *hates* Christianity, but lies about that hate until it feels strong enough to begin the carnage that is commanded for jihadis to carry out.

            In contrast, look at Netenyahu who has a specialy Christmas message for Christians:

            Can’t you not see the contrast between Jewish behaviour and tolerance of Christians (and Muslims, there are a million Arabs in Israel, many of whom are Muslims; while there are *zero* Jews in the West Bank or Gaza), and the massive intolerance of Muslims?
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrXEzFQzD9s

            > “What happens when a Christian politician requests to place a Christmas tree on Israeli government property?”

            Christmas trees are perfectly acceptable on non-Government property. You’ll find the current US Administration has the same policy. You’re just being a d!ck about it because you want to hate Israel. We get it, you’re and anit-Israel bigot based on the Marxist disinformation you’ve been fed (and you’re too lazy to check out the history yourself from unbiased sources).

            > “Sorry my friend but the scales of hate don’t compare so shove your welfare queen commie kibbutz somewhere else.”

            The US has 47% people living on Government handouts or otherwise not contributing. Who is the Marxist welfare state? Your argument holds no water and is counter-factual.

            Israel used to be fairly socialist. It learned the error of its ways and is very capitalist – with the Obama Regime in power it is fair to say that Israel is more capitalist than the US these days.

            But your whole argument is bunk really. You are clutching at straws to maintain your anti-Semitism in the face of reason. Who cares who recognized Isarel first. The Soviets recognized many countries, does that make all those countries communist somehow? your argument is ridiculous it is a suprise anyone would contemplate making it – yet your powers of reasoning are so weak you don’t even know how dumb your argument was.

            I don’t think you’re a Tea Partier at all. A Yale study shows Tea Partiers as having above average scientific knowledge. Yet you have clearly demonstrated a staggering ignorance of history, Islamic doctrine, and ability to reason.

            I’ve already explained how US miltary aid is all about the interests of US politicans, US government departments, the US military and US defense contractors. Israeli welfare is not paid by the US. You’re just into lying now since your arguments have been proven false.

            > ” Unless of course your Christian. Then you don’t get squat in Israel. Not even the right to put up a Christmas tree. Denied recently when a Christian politician advocated for his religious freedom in Israel.

            Christmas trees can be put up on non-Government land. This is identical to US policy – except these days the US Government removes crosses from even private memorials. In this regard the US is far more totalitarian.

            As I said, I’ve been to Israel. Travelling to Bethlehem on Christmas Eve the Israel Ministry of Tourism gave little bags of sweets to tourists and thanked them for visiting their country. I’ve not seen any other country welcome foreign (presumed) Christian tourists so warmly. In short, your argument is junk. I’ve been to Israel and see how well they treat everyone of any faith – Haifa especially is famous for it.

            Have you to Israel? I guess not, otherwise you wouldn’t repeat the ignorant falsehoods you do – like the good little Cultural Marxist parrot you are.

            > “Sounds quite left wing commie to me you dual allegiance schmuck”

            Ever been on a kibbutz? I have. You don’t know squat – except to keep pumping out the Cultural Marxist falsehoods you cling to – all because you want to spread evil slanders about Israel. You are an evil person for doing this.

    Israel has blood all over itself because of its original sin of the Nakba when close to one million Palestinians were forcibly removed from their homes/villages and over 550 villages were destroyed to make way for the new nation of Israel, now a pariah among the nations of the world.

      Really it was not the declaration of the Arab armies to their brethren in Israel to move away so that they could destroy the Jews? They could have stayed put there is a sizable amount of Arabs who lived peacefully in Israel’s borders who did not believe the lies of the Arab commanders. Of course what happened when these refugees moved out of their homes Voluntarily not to get caught in the fighting? The Arabs armies lost! So the Arab Commander would not let these duped people return. Israel did not force them to leave. They ended up not able to go anywhere. This is the people you call Palestinians.

    As usual, Thornton provides an informative, cogently reasoned summary of the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of some segments of academe. That members of the general public should be susceptible to accepting the nonsense of the ASA is somewhat understandable, but that presumably well-educated faculty members of prominent colleges and universities can end up embracing this irresponsible and disingenuous perception of reality is outrageous and disturbing. It’s a shame that columns like Thornton’s don’t get onto the op-ed pages of major newspapers or magazines. We have to congratulate FrontPageMagazine for doing its part to get the word out.

    You whiny, deceitful jewish supremacist warmongers make me sick to the core. You walk around with the ultimate sense of entitlement, stemming from Talmudic indoctrination that teaches them from childhood that they’re better than the rest of us “goyim” (cattle).

    The ASA should be commended for their vote, but we need to go further; given the overwhelming percentage of jews who are Zionist, I think it’s perfectly reasonable at this point to boycott jewish-owned businesses unless they explicitly denounce the terrorist, pariah “state” of Israel. It’s amazing that such a small percentage of the population controls and ultimately corrupts so many sectors of our society, from foreign policy, to media, finance, law, and higher education.

    Even the supposedly anti-Zionist jews are only in the struggle for the sake of alleviating the justified antipathy against their fellow tribesmen. It’s all about what’s best for them. The only decent jew is a former jew, like Gilad Atzmon, whose “The Wandering Who?” I greatly recommend.

    The “shabbos goyim” and Hasbara plants on here will denounce my words as “anti-Semitism [sic],” but to be honest, I really don’t care anymore. For the sake of the Palestinians, the Muslim world, multiculturalism, progressive values, and all of us in the West living under the tyranny of jewish supremacism, I unabashedly speak the truth.

            There is no such thing as “arab nationalism”. It’s only islamofascism, arab imperialism and arab fascism.

    The Arabs around the Holy Land had to rally around something after European Jewish settlers started oppressing them, and that happened to be the title of ‘Palestinian’. Since then, European Jewish aggression has only reinforced that identity. Had the settlers treated the Arabs living around the Holy Land better and accepted them as a part of their new state instead of driving many out and persecuting the ones who remained, the concept of a Palestinian identity would have never been born. As it is, the Israelis created Palestinians, and now they are dealing with the consequences. Religion was never a serious factor in it. If Islam really did command Muslims to kill Jews, then Jews would have gone extinct in the Middle East centuries ago.

    • BigSticksWalkSoftly

      Yes Palestinians didn’t care about a national government. Governments are only formed to protect or expand their citizens’ desires. Many of The native indigenes of the holy land aka palestinians didn’t need a government because as holy landers they have always had protection and never needed to be aggressive towards others. As one of my good American Jewish buddies recently explained to me: palestinians have been killed and driven into forming a unity government and common identity pretty much against their traditional desires; while euro Zionists kill others and coerce themselves into a common nationality and identity. Ones survival is based on fear and hate, the other based on reconciliation and forgiveness. Guess which one is which?

        Again another person who is ignorant of the conflict’s origins. You believe the Jews usurped control of Israel but that is not true. They paid the Caliph in Turkey millions of gold to settle there in the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. The land was desolate and there had been no rain for at least 50 years. The Caliph was glad to get the gold for such worthless land.

        Then the Jews came from Europe and brought technology with them. They discovered wells dug deeper could bring water to the parched lands. The desert bloomed over night it seemed to the Arabs who greedily took the gold and then they attacked to force the Jews off the land. But as everyone knows about technology it has to be maintained. So it broke down and the land reverted back to desert and the Arabs moved away again. This happen time and time again until world war 1 and Turkey lost to Britain. Britain was no better than the Turks in protecting the Jews from Arab predation. At this time the Jews did not move away they fought back and decimated the Arabs badly.

        It was only the intervention of British troops that prevented the removal of the Arab population for good. Then in 1921 the Balfour document was approved by Parliament. It was the first recognition of the Jews having a homeland in The Protectorate of Trans-Jordan as the area was called. Never was it called Palestine. It think that distinction needs to be stressed.

        Now the Jews were supposed to be under the protection of the British troops but again they turned a blind eye to the return of the Arab predation on the Jews. Finally the Jews bolstered by the refugees from Europe had enough men under arms to challenge British Rule/ So that war for independence was started by Jewish terrorists.

      Oh really? Then explain this…
      Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

      Just a small sample, there’s plenty more.

        Just for the record, I have heard one iranian islam0nazi state the hadith are “bullshit”. He didn’t elaborate on what he meant and it could’ve been al taqiyya, because I’ve never heard or read any islam0nazi anywhere repudiate the “authentic” ahadith.

      Can you tell me from which hidden history source you get your hogwash?

      No you can´t, you can only parrot the demagogues.

      While I do not intend to teach you history, a science that until recent years followed the scientific method and researched facts instead of taking fairy tales on face value, one point seem to be worth making as even educated people don´t know much about it.

      The so called european Jewish imperialism.

      20 % of Israelis are non jewish arabs. They have the same rights like any other Israeli citizen as they are Israeli citizens.

      But that is not the fact I like to make you aware of.

      The fact is that more than 50% of the jewish israelis in fact decent from arab or african countries.

      Here is a conservative number, more than 700,000 Jews where driven out of Arab countries where they had lived sometimes for more than 2500 years – the Jews of what is Iraq today for example.

      Despite from the roughly 500,000 Arabs that fled during the war of independence in Israel, they where integrated and their children today are educated and successful human beings.

      The Arabs that fled -over 90% where not driven out – live to this very day in concentration camps built by their arab brothers and run by a special UN body, the UNWRA.

      So would you agree that I am right to state that the fast majority of Israeli citizens are not of European decent but decent from arab, i.e. Muslim countries and are as much entitled to live in this part of the world than anyone else?

      • BigSticksWalkSoftly

        Arab Jews don’t wanna go back to their country of origins. It’s like they got a free welfare ride in israel at the American tax payer expense. Israel would only allow 100,000 palestinian refugees back in 1949. The Arabs refused the offer to show solidarity. This is a powerful expression of true palestinian tea party solidarity. Principles and low taxes is what I’m about. Not supporting israeli welfare and fear momgering.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          The people getting “welfare” are the OPEC arab countries who rape the entire world with their $100 per barrel oil.

          You once more prove your lack of historic knowledge.

          The free riders in the world are the so-called palestinian refugees.

          My dear Jew hater let me enlighten you with an inconvenient fact. The foreign aid to Israel is a mere 3.8 or roughly 4 % of the GDP of Israel.

          more than 90% of it is earmarked by the noble giver to be used to buy weaponry from the industrial military complex of the USA.

          That means basically the US government – all of them- ran and still run a huge redistribution scheme gripping into the pockets of the taxpayers and delivering the monies, via their foreign aid, into the pockets of the military industrial complex.

          Do you really believe that the welfare benefits prevent the, meanwhile millions of Jews of arab decent do not want to go back?

          No, the reason is they do not want and, even if they wanted can’t go back.

          While Israel integrated hundreds of thousands of arabs and gave them full… yes FULL, citizenship the generous arab nations keep their fled brethren in concentration camps since more than 60 years.

          So, before you spill your useless and factual wrong venom, be prepared that there are still a few around to know the facts.

    • 11bravo

      All the more reason Israel should just get it over with and drive all the arabs from Israel into the desert – build a wall, and forget about any other solution.
      There will never be a solution in the eyes of arabs except extinction of the Jews. Let the 300 million arabs all around Israel take care of their own.

    The Pali leadership uses Islam and the Quaran to justify why they’ll never sign a peace treaty with Israel. It’s because the only thing they’re interested in, is killing every single Jew in Israel.
    The PLO leaders chant Quranic verses about exterminating the Jews and the delusional cannon fodder respond like retarded savages.

    “most Muslims aren’t even religious”

    And their actions, including their voting statistics also tells you that jihad is merely a fringe element? I guess if you want to use that phrase instead of what some might call the violent vanguard, then all movements are led by the “fringe.”
