State Dept. Targets ‘Extremist Jewish’ Settlers in Terrorism Report

oooiThe U.S. State Department has just released its 2013 report on terrorism around the globe, including a whole section devoted to “Israel, West Bank, and Gaza” as part of a broader chapter on the Middle East and North Africa. Coming on the heels of Secretary of State John Kerry’s despicable claim that Israel could turn into an apartheid state, his State Department’s report treated random criminal acts, mostly vandalism, by some Jewish settlers as being on the same level as rocket launchings, suicide bombing and other acts of real terrorism by Hamas, Hezbollah and other jihadist groups. For the Obama administration, Jewish settler attacks that damage Palestinian property are morally equivalent with jihadist attacks aimed at killing Jews and Christians.

Israel’s minister of communications and home front defense, Gilad Erdan, got it right when he said that the State Department report was making “a gross, incorrect generalization” in essentially equating acts of vandalism with murder. “We are not talking about acts of murder; this is graffiti. There is a difference between murder and destruction of property,” he said.

The small minority of Jewish settlers who drew the ire of the State Department have participated in what has become known as “price tag” attacks. The State Department report defined “price tag” attacks as “property crimes and violent acts by extremist Jewish individuals and groups in retaliation for activity they deemed to be anti-settlement.” The report expressly linked the words “extremist” and “Jewish” to describe the group of settlers involved in the attacks, while the Obama administration considers it too politically incorrect to identify those committing acts of terror in the name of jihad as Muslims.

The report conceded that Israeli police had set up special units to pursue the price tag cases and that the government had given authorities broader powers to act against the perpetrators. However, relying on the United Nations and unnamed non-governmental organizations as its sources, the report charged that the attacks by settlers “were largely unprosecuted.”

The report identified two specific examples of such attacks – both aimed at Christians, not Muslims. They involved graffiti on gravestones in a Christian Orthodox cemetery and the firebombing of a monastery.  The report then cited the pro-Palestinian United Nations Office of the Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs as the source for claiming that there were “399 attacks by extremist Israeli settlers that resulted in Palestinian injuries or property damage.” The report added that “Violent extremists, including Israeli settlers, vandalized five mosques and three churches in Jerusalem and the West Bank, according to data compiled by the UN.” There was no analysis of the data compiled by the UN or explanation of where the data came from.

With Christians being murdered and persecuted by Arabs throughout the Middle East and North Africa, the chapter of the State Department report dealing with that violence-prone part of the world chose to emphasize alleged Jewish settler price tag attacks against Christian, as well as Muslim, targets. The only other anti-Christian incident highlighted by the report involved assaults on Christian Coptic Churches in Benghazi, Libya and damage to a major Sufi shrine. The report actually went out of its way to praise Jordan for hosting conferences “highlighting challenges facing Arab Christians and the importance of religious tolerance.”

Why no highlighting of the gunmen who seized the Christian village of Sadad in Syria and murdered 46 people, including 14 women and two children? How about the attacks on Egypt’s Coptic Christians and their churches by Muslim Brotherhood supporters, including the murder of a ten year old girl as she was leaving church and an eight year old girl at a Christian wedding? Why didn’t these murders of little children leaving a church and attending a Christian wedding make the State Department report, but some graffiti allegedly placed on gravestones in an Orthodox Christian cemetery by Jewish settlers did manage to make the cut?

Why is the Muslim Brotherhood mentioned only a couple of times in the chapter of the report dealing with the Middle East and North Africa, and then only as a victim of the post-Morsi Egyptian government crack-down? The State Department report said there was no proof presented that substantiated the Muslim Brotherhood’s direct involvement in the terrorist attacks that followed Morsi’s removal. Is the State Department under President Obama so much in the Muslim Brotherhood camp that they ignore evidence right under their noses showing a spike in acts of violence against Coptic Christians after Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood took power, and then even more so after Morsi was removed and his supporters called for revenge? Or are they simply incapable of putting 2 and 2 together?

What do you expect from an administration whose ambassador to Egypt spoke favorably last year about the Muslim Brotherhood?  The Obama administration’s love fest with the Muslim Brotherhood continued earlier this year when a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood was a guest at a meeting in the White House with President Obama.

It’s easy for the Obama administration to pick on Jewish settlers for committing isolated acts of vandalism and destruction, including of Christian sites.  However, Muslim atrocities that spill the blood of Christians get hardly a mention at all.  Instead, we are spoon-fed taquia (lies) by the State Department about Muslim concern for the “challenges facing Arab Christians and the importance of religious tolerance,” and the further lie that the Palestinian Authority “has taken significant steps to ensure that official institutions in the West Bank that fall under its control do not create content that leads to incitement to violence.” Did anyone at the State Department bother to review any of the hateful content broadcast on official Palestinian Authority outlets, including children’s programs, before writing such pro-Palestinian propaganda?

None of this discussion is intended to excuse the settlers’ price tag attacks. Such crimes committed by anyone, against anyone, are inexcusable and should be punished. Israel itself has not shied away from branding price tag attacks as a form of terrorism. Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said that such attacks constitute acts “against Israel and Zionism.” (Emphasis added) She added that “As a society we must marginalize them, and as a country, we must deal with them seriously and severely and bring them to justice.”

However, there needs to be some sense of proportion, which is sorely lacking in the State Department’s 2013 terrorism report. Price tag attacks against primarily property are not on par with the targeting of innocent civilians for death, as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah and other shadowy jihadist groups do as a matter of course with rocket and mortar fire and bombings. The Obama administration apparently does not see the difference, which is consistent with its anti-Israel, pro-Islam and pro-Palestinian bias.

    Does the willfully blind State department have any evidence that the graffiti defacement of Christian gravestones and firebombing of a monastery were perpetrated by Jews?
    Jews have no beef with Christians in that part of the world to warrant such attacks. As evident from anti-Christian attacks elsewhere in the Middle east, Muslims are far more likely to commit such hate crimes.
    Quite possibly, the anti-Christian attacks in West bank were false flag operations by Palestinians intended to undermine Christian support for Israel.

    • ahad_ha_amoratsim

      Bamaguje, you’re not just spinning a theory. More than one ‘price tag attack’ on mosques turned out, when investigated, to be false flag actions by Muslims. And it hasn’t been that long ago since armed Muslim terrorists, abetted by Western ‘peace activists’, invaded and vandalized a church in Bethlehem and held the monks and worshippers hostage for several days until Israel sent in soldiers and freed the hostages – - for which some joker in the US Congress accused ISRAEL of showing disrespect for the church. The monks who were freed had a different view, talked about how they were robbed and abused by the terrorists, and praised Israel for freeing them — until they realized that praising Israel is not a healthy thing to do in Bethlehem.

    I live in an area with a sizeable Jewish population. However, I can’t say I’ve ever encountered any ‘extremist Jews’. No-one of the Jewish faith has ever invaded my home, desecrated any of the nearby churches, nor carted off any of the local women and children. Not in all the 23 years I’ve lived in this district (and, no, I ain’t saying where it is). Every Jewish person I’ve ever encountered in my whole life has been civil, polite and obliging. Why would I think badly of them? The State Department needs to lay off the bongs and acid for a bit.

          • reader

            Good question. I once had a lively bout with a British Jew hater on now dormant BBC History message board, and – from what I could infer in his vile rants – his beef was mostly that the Jews blew up British servicemen in King David hotel. It strikes me that, even though there were plenty of British casualties in many conflicts with many sides, for some reason, it’s the Jews who are constantly singled out as the murderous people – even though sheer numbers point at the opposite conclusion.

            The Brits who died in the King David Hotel were given plenty of advance warning to clear out.
            With typical British arrogance they ignored the warnings and paid the price.
            After all, a rag tag group of Jews could not possibly attack the superior representatives of Great Britain.

            To this day, the Brits are still smarting. Queen Elizabeth, who has made over 80 visits to foreign countries, many of them ruled by bloody dictators, has yet to visit free and democratic Israel.

    Google e.g. for “by Arabs” “price tag” and you get a number of hits. There are almost daily reports of stone-throwing Arab youth, unfortunately the Israeli police always starts “price tag” searches with “we suspect religious Jews” without a clue. And they seldom find any as they do not try to look among the arabs. A number of Israeli leaders babble the same way, suspect before any facts.

    Why does the State Department deem some vandalism more important than murder? Because the perverse calculus of the hate crimes industry suffuses the entire federal government, and by that calculus, mere name calling and tagging of buildings is counted as more serious — and harmful — and immoral than “mere” violent crimes, including murders, that do not serve select political ends.

    Why do they do this? Ask the SPLC, the NAACP, the HRC, Eric Holder, Abe Foxman, Elana Kagan, Bill Clinton, and every other person and group responsible for demolishing the foundation of equal human dignity before the law. The State Department is merely aping the deeply biased rubric of our domestic legal system, in which similar reports breathlessly denounce a word scrawled in chalk (often by the purported victim) while violent crimes, especially politically inconvenient ones, are intentionally ignored and forgotten. It took less than two decades to get here, and more is yet to come.

    • ahad_ha_amoratsim

      A. Because the murdered people are Jews? Or Israelis? Or because the murderers are Muslims? Or because the supposed vandals are Jews (putting aside the false flag ‘price tag’ actions by Arabs)? All of the above and more?

    Why was Obama elected even once, let alone twice? His regime in power has caused great harm to the world. He has sided with Islamists and criminals at every opportunity. He also seems to have an over representation of Muslims in his cabal. Is there no way he can be recalled from office today instead of in 2016? He is not to be trusted.

    I don’t FPM runs an article that doesn’t start with a gross misstatement or interpretation of what someone REALLY meant and then attack said dummy with vigor.

    “Why is the Muslim Brotherhood mentioned only a couple of times in the chapter of the report dealing with the Middle East and North Africa, and then only as a victim of the post-Morsi Egyptian government crack-down?”

    Um….because it deals with reality and not the boogeyman you’ve been trying to make of the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s weird how FPM didn’t really cover what happened to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      justquiltnow,

      The Boogyeman isn’t real.

      The Muslim Brotherhood is real – and beats, stabs, shoots, rapes, stones, hangs people.

      • justquitnow

        Well sure man…those are real dangers…for people on the other side of the world. You’re in no danger of being raped by a Muslim Brotherhood member. FPM fought so hard to link Obama with the Muslim Brotherhood, that the fact that the Egyptian military all but wiped them out in their country doesn’t fit the narrative that Obama was trying to give them power there….so it just didn’t happen. Let’s cherry pick this report and decry all the rapes they missed….that’s fair.

            Do you understand how guilt by association works….or in the case of FPM “guilt by blood”, “guilt by education”. “guilt by knowing”? There is no black or arab person that cannot be maligned in this way.

          • reader

            This is not guilt by association. This is association by values. I understand how it works. It works this way: Obama facilitated Morsi’s ascendence to power, and now he is punishing Egytpion military for dislodging Morsi from power.

          • justquitnow

            and who gets to determine what someone’s values are….you do apparently, so it’s a meaningless standard…

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            No, there is a huge difference between, e.g., blaming all Blacks for the actions of the New Black Panther Party, and blaming NBPP members themselves and non-members who endorse the NBPP platform or commit illegal acts advocated or incited by the NBPP.

          • justquitnow

            err…right…then we just check to see if Obama is a card carrying member of the Muslim Brotherhood…which by your last statement would make your previous bs not a variation of “guilt by association”. DERP.

      Members of the Muslim Brotherhood sit on Obama’s White House Advisory Council, providing the guidance that drives his leadership of the country. Which may explain why Obama’s policies seem more accommodating to “death to the infidels” than to “Freedom and Democracy”.

  • DontMessWithAmerica

    I think it is splendid for Obama’s State Department to take an interest in Israeli affairs while it is in deep doodoo back in DC with Benghazi affairs, IRS, spying on Americans and other countries, etc. And what is the matter with the Israelis? Have they no interest in America? Why don’t they show some concern for American problems such as an Attorney General who needs to be impeached, a president who lies to Americans, an endless and unprecedented pile of troubles. Let the Israelis show that they care for America and speak up with finger pointing. Perhaps they could go further and collaborate with the Egyptians to investigate the full background of Banghazi and Obama’s partnership with Morsi which led to the killing of our ambassador.

    I can understand the distress of the US State Department. The settlements are the prime example of the intransigence of Israel. Why can’t the settlers do the politically correct thing and fire rockets indiscriminately into populated areas? And further, why does Israel refuse to compromise, as the State Department wishes? After all, what would the compromise be for the Islamic doctrine of “death to infidels”? Death to half of the Jews? It must be tough, being a diplomat.

    • ahad_ha_amoratsim

  • Martel

    The world is turning against Israel, this will not chance in the coming years. Conservatives believe that one day they will get the black vote and the hispanic vote, if only, according to a recent FPM contributor, they get into hiphop, rage against “racism” and “reach out”. It will never happen. Israel’s only voluntary ally are grassroots conservatives, aiding a nation which doesn’t give two cents about them.

    I support a Jewish ethnostate(passively), but one day their supporters have to recognize that every ethnic group deserves their own home. White Americans have the right to restrict immigration to not change the demographics, and remain a white majority(vital to remain a peaceful, prosperous nation). Europeans have the right to remain the majority in their home countries too. One day a better alliance may come out of this, not deluded about the nature of multi-ethnic societies, and in case of Israel’s supporters also an understanding of the true causes of European and American “antisemitism” and therefore its solutions.

    • ahad_ha_amoratsim

      Yeah, because there are no ethnostates for Arabs, right?

      We already know ‘the true causes of European and American “antisemitism” ‘: European and American Jew-haters, which, if I recall correctrly from other threads, you have attempted to justify.

      • Martel

        So what are the true causes?
        I don’t try to justify anything, my goal is to hold all ethnic groups to the same standards, by understanding the origin of their prejudices and fears..

        I have no issue with ethnostates for Arabs or any other people, its the single way to prevent ethnic conflict.

        • ahad_ha_amoratsim

          I just told you; the true cause is Jew-haters. They will find different, and often mutually contradictory, excuses in any given time and place. But whenever one Jew behaves badly, or Jews behave the way other human beings do, the Jew-haters pounce and claim that Jews are eternally and universally X or Y. Or even X and Y, even though X and Y are mutually contradictory. In most cases, X and Y will be whatever sins are considered the most heinous in that particular time and place.
          Are all Jews beyond fault? Don’t be absurd. But the JHew-haters’ reaction to those faults has much less to do with what Jews actually do than with what Jew-haters care to perceive.

          • Martel

            The first sentence already points to circular reasoning, they hate Jews because, they hate Jews. My theory is clear, reasonable, and does not picture either side as the spawn of Lucifer. It simply states that due to both legitimate and illegitimate fears and prejudices, both the Jewish and the gentile communities ”ruffled each others feathers”. These fears ensure both gentiles and Jews become more ethnocentric, providing the basis for escalation of these political conflicts. This isn’t behaviour inherent to Jews or European gentiles, it can be observed
            In all multi ethnic or multicultural societies.

            I agree that many antisemites overstate issues, they are often quite resentful, and are unable to provide a nuanced picture. This can be caused by personal defects or by the observation that it is very difficult to hold Jews to the same standards as European gentiles without being scolded, losing ones job and so on. An example is my presence here, nothing I said can be deemed immoral, but I have been called an ”antisemite” many times. Many gentiles who say, observe that nearly all major media companies are owned or run by Jews, and correctly or incorrectly make the connection that this may explain why the media promotes anti-european views tend to be attacked, which pushes them to more extreme views. Jewish fears for antisemitism, partially correct, partially overstated, cause such reactions, which actually make the situation worse.

            I don’t say either side is ”right”, I state that these situations are caused by processes inherent in all societies where different ethnicities or cultures exist next to each other.

            Case in point.

            How so?
            The observation itself is correct, this is difficult to deny. Greenfield gave me two names which supposed to disprove my point, it turned out one was actually Jewish. There can be many conclusions drawn about this fact, but I understand why ”antisemites” believe there is a correlation between media bias and such ownership. That does not mean its correct, but it does provide a better explanation for why Jews are considered to have a disproportionate political influence.

            Isn’t this a more reasonable claim then simply stating ‘that there is some inexplicable hatred coming out of Europeans?

            It seems you even dislike me making this observations, which I would understand as its quite a different interpretation then we are used to, but the standard explanations are clearly invalid.

    Just watch and document all the ways this administration and other nations plot to try and destroy Israel and divide Jerusalem. Psalm 83 explains it well. “O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads, With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come they say, “Let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you…the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab, and the Hagrites, Gebal, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot. Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, who perished at Endor and became like the refuse on the ground. Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said, “Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God.” Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind. As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze, so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm. Cover their faces with shame so that men will seek your name, O Lord. May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord….that you alone are the Most High over the Earth. Compare it to other radical anti-semetic hateful regimes who have tried to destroy the Jewish nation and people!

    What the “Palestinians”[Muslim/Arabs] just don’t understand, maybe because they don’t want to understand is that all ofthe land in that area in the Middle East belongs to the Jewish people because God had declared so in His Word, the Bible. In other word the Jews have this land because of Divine Right. As seen, for example, in Genesis 28:13-15. 35:10-12. Deuteronomy 32:48,49. Psalm 105:7-11. 135:4. Furthermore the Jewish people also should have this land because of historic rights. As shown in First Kings 4:20,21. 24. 25. 8:5,56. Many Muslims claim to respect the Bible. If that claim is valid then they should accept this truth that has been just explained. In all fairness, there is one was that the “Palestinians” can convince God to change His Mind and then turn His back on Israel and thus have that nation be no more. That way is for them to change the laws of astrophysics, including that of the sun, the moon and the stars. For God has said in Jeremiah 31;35,36. “Thus saith the Lord,which gives the sun for a light by day and the ordinances of the moon and stars for a light by night…The Lord of host is His name. If those ordinances depart from before Me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Isreal also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever.”

      But God didn’t own the land – so it wasn’t his to give.

    For the Obama administration, Jewish
    settler attacks that damage Palestinian property are morally equivalent
    with jihadist attacks aimed at killing Jews and Christians.”

    This seems to be the opinion of Ms Livni and Co. They are calling for these settlers to be treated as ‘terrorists’ and thrown in gaol without trial. As I say elsewhere this ‘terrorism law’ of Israel’s is very scary.

    The NAACP is OWNED, OPERATED and FINANCED by
    ZIONNIST JEWS and always has been!

    The NAACP was
    incorporated a year later in 1911 by a group of ZIONIST JEWS. The association’s
    charter delineated its mission:

    To promote equality of rights and to eradicate caste or race prejudice among
    the citizens of the United States; to advance the interest of colored citizens;
    to secure for them impartial suffrage; and to increase their opportunities for
    securing justice in the courts, education for the children, employment
    according to their ability and complete equality before law.

    JEWS control 98% of
    AMERICA’S MEDIA: http://racerules.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/donald-sterling-and-the-fear-of-the-j-word/

    JEWS keep BLACKS in
    CRACK HOUSES all across AMERICA: http://firstlightforum.wordpress.com/2011/07/06/jews-are-fake-buddies-of-blacks-so-they-can-use-blacks-to-destroy-white-christian-europeans/

    The conference resulted in a more influential and diverse organization, where
    the leadership was predominantly white and heavily Jewish American. In fact, at
    its founding, the NAACP had only one African American on its executive board,
    Du Bois himself. It did not elect a black president until 1975, although
    executive directors had been African American. The Jewish community contributed
    greatly to the NAACP’s founding and continued financing. Jewish historian
    Howard Sachar writes in his book A History of Jews in America of how, “In
    1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman
    of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff,
    Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise.”[19] Early Jewish-American
    co-founders included Julius Rosenwald, Lillian Wald, Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch and
    Wise.

    According to Pbs.org “Over the years Jews have also expressed empathy
    (capability to share and understand another’s emotion and feelings) with the
    plight of Blacks. In the early 20th century, Jewish newspapers drew parallels
    between the Black movement out of the South and the Jews’ escape from Egypt,
    pointing out that both Blacks and Jews lived in ghettos, and calling anti-Black
    riots in the South “pogroms”. Stressing the similarities rather than
    the differences between the Jewish and Black experience in America, Jewish
    leaders emphasized the idea that both groups would benefit the more America
    moved toward a society of merit, free of religious, ethnic and racial
    restrictions.”[20] Pbs.org further states, “The American Jewish
    Committee, the American Jewish Congress, and the Anti-Defamation League were
    central to the campaign against racial prejudice. Jews made substantial
    financial contributions to many civil rights organizations, including the
    NAACP, the Urban League, the Congress of Racial Equality, and the Student
    Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. About 50 percent of the civil rights
    attorneys in the South during the 1960s were Jews, as were over 50 percent of
    the Whites who went to Mississippi in 1964 to challenge Jim Crow
    Laws.”[20]

    As a member of the Princeton chapter of the NAACP, Albert Einstein corresponded
    with Du Bois, and in 1946 Einstein called racism “America’s worst
    disease”.[21][22] Du Bois continued to play a pivotal role in the
    organization and served as editor of the association’s magazine, The Crisis,
    which had a circulation of over 30,000.

    Obama’s USA has come full circle.
    From that historic war for freedom in 1776, the American Revolution, to today’s nefarious efforts in 2014 to destroy freedom in Israel.
