It’s Jew-Hatred, Stupid

john-kerryThe disheartening, though not entirely surprising, breakdown of talks between Israel and the Palestinians marked yet another failure by the two sides to come closer to an agreement that would usher the way for a Palestinian state. Yet, no sooner had the talks collapsed than blame was being assigned by both Secretary of State John Kerry and chief U.S. negotiator Martin Indyk—and naturally it was Israel that bore the brunt of their criticism. Echoing the sentiments of Palestinian leadership itself, Kerry and Indyk pointed to the dreaded settlements as the principal sticking point of the talks, with Indyk suggesting that Israel’s approval of new housing units in the Gilo neighborhood Jerusalem would, as he put it, “drive Israel into an irreversible binational reality.”

Secretary Kerry had the same complaint, insisting that Prime Minister Netanyahu’s refusal to release the final third of Palestinian prisoners, coupled with the provocative new building plans, were the Israeli actions that blew up the nine months of negotiations.

On one development even the State Department was less than enthusiastic: the reconciliation agreement reached by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, announced at the end of April, which State’s spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, deemed “disappointing” and the timing “troubling.” Even diplomats have to face certain truths, and Ms. Psaki had to begrudgingly admit that, in her words uttered with breathtaking understatement, “It’s hard to see how Israel can be expected to negotiate with a government that does not believe in its right to exist.”

Diplomacy involving Israel and the Palestinians invariably reaches this point—the thorny and slippery intersection of the politically possible and the diplomatically desired, with the inevitable result being that it is Israel made to be seen as the guilty party in having talks collapse, regardless of the actual events leading up to such a failure. Without even the barest amount of self awareness of how the inability to hold the Palestinians responsible for any major acts of concessions for strategic negotiation, U.S. diplomacy is continually based on the assumption that it is Israel—and only Israel—that is going to make negotiation move forward, and that it is Israel, and only Israel, that has the will and ability to make changes in policy and any concessions necessary to satisfy the Palestinian’s maximalist demands.

As a result, and as the Palestinians have cleverly figured out, Israel is made to release terrorist prisoners, agreed to land swaps, or to deliver any number of other painful concessions, just to further engage the Palestinians and keep them at the bargaining table.

While it may be comforting and diplomatically expedient for Secretary Kerry to insist that it is Israel’s fault when things go awry, or that Israel alone has the ability to do things and make concessions for peace, the idea that it is the settlements, or the number of murderers released to the Palestinians, or any other of the various issues of which Israel is always accused that is actually causing the logjam in the peace talks is simply naive and overlooks some far more lethal, pernicious, and ideologically-driven, far more intractable issues underlying negotiations between the Jewish state and its Palestinian foes.

What any honest observer of the history of conflict between Israel and its Arab neighbors knows well, the Palestinians have been strident and inflexible in their maximalist demands, not to mention their intractability on such non-starters as the so-called “right of return,” the division of Jerusalem, and the proclaimed requirement that the Palestinian state will be judenrein, that, as Mahmoud Abbas himself has repeated, not one Jew will be allowed to live in the new Palestinian state.

But the unity pact between Fatah and Hamas brings to the surface a far more pernicious aspect, something that neither Prime Minister Netanyahu, Secretary Kerry, nor any other diplomat is likely to finesse in negotiations in Jerusalem, Ramallah, or Washington. While the State Department is quick to condemn the building of new apartments in Gilo, or hector the Israelis for not releasing Arab murderers in exchange for the possibility of continued talks, its seems to have been wilfully blind in not recognizing that the foundational document by which Hamas was established—the 1988 Hamas Charter—is animated with genocidal Jew-hatred, replete with a global strategy to extirpate Israel and murderous tactics based on millennial dreams of apocalyptic jihad.

There is, tellingly, no discussion in the Hamas Charter about the location of future borders or peaceful co-existence between a Jewish state and a new Palestinian one. There is certainly no recognition by Hamas of Israel being a legitimate state, or one that will prevail, let alone one that is a sovereign power on what is thought to be now and forever holy Muslim land. In the first place, according to Hamas, the circumstances through which the “Zionist regime” was hoisted on the world through the perfidy of the treacherous Jews is, in the honor/shame culture of the Middle East, an open wound on the Islamic world, a situation which demands jihad to restore the sanctity of Islamic land and rid the world of the festering sore that is Israel. “[T]he land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Islamic religious endowment] consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day,” the Charter proclaims. “The day that enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem,” stipulating that jihad is not only a tactical choice for ridding Palestine of the Zionist interloper, it is seen as a religious duty; in fact, it is demanded of true believers. Article 8 of the Charter contains the virulent, but clear, language of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood which has become the Hamas slogan: “Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its Constitution; Jihad is its path, and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.”

What should be more troubling to diplomats embroiled in this particular debate is the Charter’s Article 13, which is extremely clear—in a way that the more disingenuous Mr. Abbas is not when speaking to Western audiences—in stating its objection to any solution other than jihad. The division of what is perceived to be Muslim land is totally unacceptable; in fact, it is a violation of Allah’s will. Thus, for Hamas, peace talks and negotiating for borders or land swaps are completely inconceivable concessions. Jihad to eliminate the Zionist presence is the only acceptable tactic. “Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement,” the Article states. “Abusing any part of Palestine is abuse against part of religion. Nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its religion . . . There is no solution to the Palestinian question except by Jihad. All initiatives, proposals, and International Conferences are a waste of time and vain endeavors.”

Mr. Netanyahu has been goading the Palestinian leadership for some time to state that they recognize Israel as a Jewish state, a recognition that has heretofore not been forthcoming. But both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have obviously already recognized that Israel is Jewish state—and therein lies the very reason for the annihilationist hatred they have for it. What they have not, and will not, acknowledge is the legitimacy of a Jewish state, even if they are aware of its actual existence—something they have had to confront for over 60 years. In fact, the existence of a sovereign Jewish entity in the beating heart of the Islamic ummah is doubly intolerable: first, for being a non-Muslim, dhimmi state with political autonomy and military strength, and second, more significantly, for being what is perceived to be a murderous, immoral, illegitimate regime existing for the benefit of and providing temporary nationhood to the most hated of beings—the Jews.

The Charter’s Article 7, specifically, contains the oft-cited hadith which exhorts Muslims to seek out and murder Jews specifically as a sacred obligation. Islamic teaching depicts Jews as the descendants of “monkeys and pigs,” treacherous deceivers, manipulative barbarians and thieves who attempted to murder the prophets, and who are satanic, murderous, unlawful occupiers of holy Muslim land whose elimination is sacralized in Koranic and hadithic precepts.  “. . . The Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to realize the promise of Allah, no matter how long it takes,” Article 7 reads. “The Prophet, Allah’s prayer and peace be upon him, says: ‘The hour of judgment shall not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, so that the Jews hide behind trees and stones, and each tree and stone will say: “Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,” except for the Gharqad tree, for it is the tree of the Jews.’”

The same genocidal Jew-hatred embedded in the Hamas Charter lives on and animates the public broadcasts and speeches of Hamas leadership. In 2010, for example, Mahmoud al-Zahar, Hamas Foreign Minister, informed the Jews of Israel that “[they] have no future among the nations of the world. [They] are headed for annihilation.” Appearing on Hamas-sponsored TV, Yunis al-Astal, a Hamas member of the Palestinian legislature, informed his rapt viewers that “all the dangerous predators, all the birds of prey, all the dangerous reptiles and insects, and all the lethal bacteria are far less dangerous than the Jews. In just a few years, all the Zionists . . . will realize that their arrival in Palestine was for the purpose of the great massacre, by means of which Allah wants to relieve humanity of their evil.”

In a February 2010 statement, Abdallah Jarbu, a member of the Hamas government, suggested that “the Jews are thieves and aggressors. They are a foreign bacteria—a microbe unparalleled in the world. May He [Allah] annihilate this filthy people. I condemn whoever believes that they are human beings. They are not human beings. They are not people.”

It is no surprise that in a culture marinated in Jew-hatred, where Jews are debased, portrayed as a subhuman species, bacteria, a disease, fomenters of wars and strife—in fact, the enemies of God and mankind—the annihilation of Jews would therefore become not only a reasonable goal but a desired outcome. Who would not exterminate Jews if they pose such threats to mankind and Islam specifically? Who would ever make peace with the eternal enemies of Allah, let alone negotiate a peace and borders for a new Arab state with them? And would not those jihadis who immolate themselves to murder Jews in the name of Allah be celebrated as shahids, martyrs, and have town squares and summer camps named for them and their bravery, exactly as they are in the West Bank by Palestinian leadership now?

Honoring those who murder Jews continues unabated, even within the newly-formed unity government formed by Palestinian Authority and Hamas “technocrats.” In May, the PA and Hamas jointly lauded Izz Al-Din Al-Masri, the homicidal maniac who, in 2001, immolated himself in a Jerusalem Sbarro pizza shop, murdering 15 Jews (seven of them children) and wounding many others. When Al-Masri’s body was recently returned by Israel to the PA, Hamas and the PA used the occasion to shower honor and praise on someone who was successful in deliberately exterminating Jews. In fact, the event symbolized the new relationship between the two Palestinian factions, united in genocidal hatred of Jews. “The popular gathering around the blood of Izz Al-Din Al-Masri is an honest and true expression of our people’s yearning for national unity [between Fatah and Hamas],” the groups proclaimed, seemingly without embarrassment for their mental disorder, “and unity of action.”

Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV broadcast the symbolic meaning of the martyrdom of this murderer of Jews, reporting that, “Izz Al-Din Al-Masri ascended to Paradise in a Martyrdom-seeking operation he carried out in the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, where he gave the Zionists a taste of humiliation after killing 19 [sic] Zionists and wounding dozens . . . The citizens expressed their pride in Izz Al-Din’s heroism, along with the thousands who gathered to accompany him on his final journey, and they did not forget all those who played a role in this operation.”

If Jews are the most wretched of humans, and the “liberation” of all of Palestine—including present-day Israel—is considered a sacred duty and religious obligation, then the murder of Jews must, and will continue in this millennial apocalyptic struggle in which Hamas sees itself playing a central role. At a ceremony marking the twenty-fourth anniversary of the founding of Hamasthe head of the organization, Ismail Haniyeh,for example,asserted“that the armed resistance and the armed struggle are the path and the strategic choice for liberating the Palestinian land, from the [Mediterranean] sea to the [Jordan] river, and for the expulsion of the invaders and usurpers [Israel] from the blessed land of Palestine. The Hamas movement will lead Intifada after Intifada until we liberate Palestine—all of Palestine, Allah willing.”The creation of a Palestinian state is not even of central importance in this holy war against the enemies of Islam—primary among the kafirs, unbelievers, the Jews. A Palestinian unity government that is comprised of a faction with a foundational, sacralized hatred for and impulse to annihilate Jews can never, obviously, sit at a negotiating table with Israel to outline the borders of a new Palestinian state.

In 2006, weeks after Hamas was overwhelmingly voted into office and became influential in Palestinian politics, a grisly video was posted on its web site by a soon-to-be homicide bomber, revealing the morally-depraved ideology that jihad has wrought and suggesting that a peaceful settlement is not even a likely prospect. “My message to the loathed Jews is that there is no god but Allah, we will chase you everywhere! We are a nation that drinks blood, and we know that there is no blood better than the blood of Jews. We will not leave you alone until we have quenched our thirst with your blood, and our children’s thirst with your blood.”

If Secretary Kerry wonders why the negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis suddenly went “poof,” as he put it, it might be useful for him to consider whether the problem lies with the building of some apartments for Jews in the capital of the Jewish state or with a genocidal ideology which is already intent on inculcating a new generation of shahids dedicated to slaughtering the residents of those new apartments simply because they are, in fact, Jews.

    John Effing Kerry’s been a traitor to The United States-since Vietnam. *spit
    (is He drooling at that pic. at the top of this article?)

  • Texas Patriot

    With ISIS having openly declared its intent to reform an Islamic Caliphate in all the lands now comprising Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel, the idea of a separate state for the so-called Palestinians is now moot. The only question now is whether any of the current governments will be left standing after ISIS finishes its blitzkrieg across the Levant.

    • Americana

      I’d say the chances of ISIS and ISIL being given any opportunity to continue their regional push for a Caliphate is OVER now that those ISIS/ISIL idiots had the temerity to declare that al Baghadi is the ruler of the Caliphate since he’s taken over X-amount of territory. They are dead meat having made that claim of a Caliphate under al Baghdadi’s leadership

      • Texas Patriot

        Americana: They are dead meat having made that claim of a Caliphate under al Baghdadi’s leadership

        Why do you say that? Baghdadi has a Ph.D. in Islamic studies. He’s 42 years old. He’s been wildly successful militarily. And he believes in strict interpretation and enforcement of traditional Islamic law. For the young, inspired, and internationally oriented jihadi who seeks a return to the glory days of Islam as practiced by Muhammad and his followers, Baghdadi may look like the perfect leader to restore the worldwide Islamic Caliphate.

    “Kerry’s Brother: John’s Not Anti-Semitic, We’re Jewish”
    BY ANDREA MITCHELL

    Nixon Tells Editors, ‘I’m Not a Crook’

    • Pete

      Kerry’s problem is that he was born a Boston Brahmin. He planned to seek higher elected office before he graduated high school. There is nothing wrong with wanting a political career.

      The problem lies in wanting it so bad that it warps you. You can be a just person. You can be smart person. But if you have no plan B, you can be suborned by your desire, by others, by circumstance.

      I think his military career was the 1st stepping stone for his political career. It kind of explains why he bailed after 3 or 4 months in Vietnam. I would like to see the 3 scars he has from the 3 wounds he received in Vietnam. I wonder how many of them are visible. He assiduously documented them and yet are they apparent? He was punching a ticket.

      • wildjew

        Here is what I don’t understand. Especially since the 9/11/2001 Muslim-terror attacks in New York and Washington Americans are more attuned to the savagery in the Middle East, in the Muslim world. Notwithstanding what our leaders have been telling us, particularly conservatives are coming to appreciate that Islam is not a peaceful religion / ideology. It is a violent religion. That having been said Americans seem to have a blind spot when it comes to Israel. Obama released five Taliban commanders in exchange for a captive soldier and there’s been an understandable national outcry especially on the political right, yet the American people by and large apparently have no problem pressuring Israel to concede precious strategic land to these savages living in Israel. What gives?

        • Pete

          They think by giving up the Jews they will pacify the Muslims and they will leave us alone.

          It is no different than the joke that you don’t have to out run a lion, you just have to be faster than the next guy.

          The thinking is that shallow and that selfish.

          If a person is that way what is the point of sapience?

          • wildjew

            Interesting and compelling theory. You think the motivation for supporting or (at least) not opposing this phony peace process with savages is appeasement not unlike what we saw in England during the nineteen thirties. I thought the American people were made of better stuff than Europeans. Maybe we are not that much better after all?

        • ObamaYoMoma

          Here is what I don’t understand. Especially since the 9/11/2001 Muslim-terror attacks in New York and Washington Americans are more attuned to the savagery in the Middle East, in the Muslim world.

          Well the first thing you don’t understand is that Muslims are not terrorists, as the word terrorism is also a euphemism for radicals and extremists. However, the 9/11 violent jihadists were not radicals and extremists. Instead, they were mainstream orthodox Muslims, as waging jihad in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims, and because Islam is a so-called religion that executes all apostates and all blasphemers, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, as opposed to only a few radicals and extremists who perpetrate terrorism. Otherwise, they are executed for apostasy and blasphemy according to the dictates of Islam.

          Notwithstanding what our leaders have been telling us, particularly conservatives are coming to appreciate that Islam is not a peaceful religion / ideology.

          I don’t know if I could call a so-called religion that requires all adherents to totally, completely, and unconditionally submit to the “will of Allah”, which in essence is Islamic totalitarian law (Sharia), under the penalties of death for apostasy and death for blasphemy. Do faith-based religions also similarly execute all apostates and all blasphemers as well? Hardly! I would highly recommend that such an entity not be considered a religion, but a very dangerous cult instead that also happens to be exceedingly totalitarian at the same time.

          Not to mention that the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam (the only kind) is the subjugation of all infidels and all religions into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, to ultimately make Islam supreme.

          It is a violent religion.

          Again, I would never call Islam a religion, maybe a so-called religion, but never a religion. Moreover, violence isn’t the greatest threat emanating from Islam. The greatest threat by far emanating from Islam today stems from non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, i.e., through mass Muslim infiltration and eventual demographic conquest. Indeed, Islam is a very backwards society relative to western infidel society and can never hope to defeat us militarily and through violence. However, through mass Muslim infiltration and demographic conquest they obviously can.

          That having been said Americans seem to have a blind spot when it comes to Israel.

          Not only do a lot of Americans have a blind spot when it comes to Israel, but also so do most Israel supporters, including many Israeli citizens, also have a tremendous blind spot as well.

          What is happening in Israel is not an Arab-Israeli Conflict over land that Israel is alleged to have stolen, as that is just a pretext. What is happening in Israel is the greater Islamic totalitarian world is waging jihad against the Jewish infidels in Israel through their proxies the so-called Palestinians to ultimately render the Jewish infidels into Islamic totalitarianism, i.e., harsh and degrading dhimmitude, and to make Islam supreme in Israel, and as such it is just one of many jihads the Islamic totalitarian world is waging against all infidels around the world to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world. Thus, there is no individual solution for Israel’s jihad problem. Instead, there is only a collective solution and it must involve the entire collective infidel world acting in unison together to defeat Islam.

          • wildjew

            You wrote: “Not only do a lot of Americans have a blind spot when it comes to Israel, but also so do most Israel supporters, including many Israeli citizens, also have a tremendous blind spot as well….”

            You’ve spent much space on a question I did not ask. I don’t want to quibble with you over terms like terror (as in “strike terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve”) nor do I wish to dispute whether Islam is a religion, an ideology, a cult, etc.

            I am an American citizen for now. When I get to Israel I will argue and dispute with my fellow Israelis.

            I wrote above: “The American people by and large apparently have no problem pressuring Israel to concede precious strategic land to these savages. What gives?”

            Pete (below) posits, the Americans ‘think by giving up the Jews they will pacify the Muslims and they will leave us alone’. Why do you think the American people support or are indifferent to Washington pressuring Israel to capitulate to these savages?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            You’ve spent much space on a question I did not ask.

            I simply further pointed out that many Israelis also have a blind spot when it comes to the jihad that is being waged against them, just like you to a certain extent do as well.

            I don’t want to quibble with you over terms like terror (as in “strike terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve”)

            Are you saying that violent acts of jihad aren’t capable of striking terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve? Apparently. Not to mention that you are citing a western translation of what the Arabic is saying, and since most western translators are oblivious of Islam and jihad, that they would use the word terror is not surprising to anyone, least of all me. I mean is there an English translation for the word jihad? Not the last time I checked.

            In addition, the word terrorism is also a euphemism for radicals and extremists. Yet, all Muslims in the world are also jihadists in one form or another, as opposed to only a few radical and extremist terrorists.

            Nevertheless, if you want to continue believing that only radical and extremist Muslims are terrorists, while ignoring the greater danger emanating from non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad at the same time, well don’t let me hold you back. Believe whatever you want. It’s no hair off my back.

            nor do I wish to dispute whether Islam is a religion, an ideology, a cult, etc.

            Again, if you want to ignore the obvious reality, then more power to you. So be it and I could care less what you believe?

            Why do you think the American people support or are indifferent to Washington pressuring Israel to capitulate to these savages? What gives?”

            Obviously, they refuse to open up their minds sort of like you.

          • wildjew

            “Obviously, they refuse to open up their minds sort of like you….”

            Soon after the British were given the Mandate for the Jewish National Home in ‘Palestine’ (1922) they began violating their commitments to the Jews under the terms of the Mandate. Largely in response to Arab demands Britain limited Jewish immigration in the late nineteen thirties, early nineteen forties even as desperate Jews sought refuge in Palestine from Na zi occupied Europe. England’s leaders had the support of their public by and large.

            Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower imposed an arms embargo on the Jewish state from the late nineteen forties though the nineteen fifties. Since the 1967 Six Day War when Israel reacquired lands promised to the Jews by the Mandate every U.S. administration has sought to take this land from Israel and give it to Israel’s mortal enemies who are dedicated to her destruction. The American people by and large have actively or passively supported this immoral policy for decades so much so for the first time in the history of the GOP, President George W. Bush codified Republican party support for a Muslim-enemy state in Israel’s heartland, August 2004 with full support from rank and file Republicans, Republican leaders, etc., with only few exceptions.

            Are you one of these exceptions? If you are, what have you done or written since Bush codified this abomination in our party platform to counter it?

            You say, Americans obviously refuse to open up their minds sort of like me. That’s it? Decades of American policy aimed at the establishment of a Muslim-enemy state in Israel’s heartland which was formalized by president Bush is supported actively and passively only because Americans refuse to open their minds with respect to Islam and Israel?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            I have always been a strong supporter of Israel, as Israel is a victim of jihad as we all are. Meanwhile, GWB is a delusional leftist who posed as being a conservative, and as a result his presidency from the two greatest strategic blunders ever in American history in Iraq and Afghanistan, to the financial crash at the end of his administration, was a total unmitigated disaster.

            Moreover, the majority of the Republican Party also supports pathways to citizenship for illegal immigrants that they claim isn’t a form of amnesty, yet the majority of the people they allegedly represent are overwhelmingly against it. It doesn’t mean a damn thing. In other words, the Republican Party is a joke. Not to mention that I haven’t been a Republican for years. So don’t accuse me of being one.

          • wildjew

            You say the majority of the Republican Party (leadership?) support pathways to citizenship for illegal immigrants (amnesty) yet the majority of the people they allegedly represent are overwhelmingly against it.

            I wrote, decades of American policy aimed at the establishment of a Muslim-enemy state in Israel’s heartland is supported actively and passively only because Americans (and conservatives) refuse to open their minds with respect to Islam and Israel?

            The majority of the people the Republican party represent have their eyes wide open to the folly of giving amnesty to illegal aliens but they refuse to open their minds with respect to Islam?

            That’s your take?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Actually, you are wrong. With the exception of non-conservatives, i.e., traditional Republicans, which, unfortunately, also happens to comprise the majority of the Republicans in Congress today, the vast overwhelming majority of conservatives and Republicans overwhelmingly support Israel. Here again is a situation where the majority of Republicans in Congress are betraying the majority of their constituents.

            I also bet if you polled the majority of Republicans and conservatives in the country today and asked them if they agreed with mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage that the vast overwhelming majority of them would not agree.

            By the way, the last time I checked Congress only has a 9 percent approval rating. The above cited examples are a few of the reasons why.

          • wildjew

            You say the vast overwhelming majority of conservatives and Republicans overwhelmingly support Israel. Can you name some. Can you cite any well-known conservative or Republican who overwhelmingly supports Israel? How do you define “overwhelming support for Israel”? Can you provide some specifics, what it means to support Israel?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            No….I’m not working that hard. If you want to believe that most conservatives dislike Jews and don’t support Israel, then go right ahead. It’s your prerogative and I could care less what you believe.

          • wildjew

            Thanks.

          • Americana

            I’ll point out that Pres. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq was a direct result of all this neocon foreign policy hysteria over jihadi terrorism. Blame it all on Pres. Bush? Hardly.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            I’ll point out that Pres. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq was a direct result of all this neocon foreign policy hysteria over jihadi terrorism. Blame it all on Pres. Bush? Hardly.

            No not quite. Like a loon he wanted to finish the fight his father had never finished. Not to mention as well, that like his father he didn’t have a conservative bone in his incredibly liberal body, as he is a delusional leftist just like you. Hence, his understanding of the threat emanating from Islam was convoluted the same way yours is

            In any event, ousting Saddam was one thing and, of course, there was always going to be a jihad between the Sunni and Shia no matter what to fill the vacuum left behind, but occupying Iraq, like a leftwing loon, to do nation-building in order to attempt to lift up Muslims, who happen to be our eternal mortal enemies, to stop so-called radical Islam from hijacking Islam, which is a total utter farce, and to democratize the Islamic totalitarian world because you are too dumb to realize what Islam actually is, was a fool’s errand destined to fail even before it was ever implemented.

            Of course, in Afghanistan going after OBL and AQ in retaliation for 9/11 was one thing, but again occupying Afghanistan for the same idiotic purposes was another fantasy based fool’s errand destined to fail even before it was ever implemented. Indeed, GWB’s entire so-called “War on Terror” was a fool’s errand, as Muslims aren’t terrorists perpetrating terrorism because of poverty and despair, but jihadists instead waging jihad in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world per the dictates of mainstream orthodox Islam (the only kind).

            The truth of the matter is had not GWB’s father also been so incredibly mentally incompetent, he would have supported Saddam’s earlier war to conquer the Saudis and the Gulf States. Why? Because it would have dealt Sunni Islam a very severe blow that it may not have been able to recover from. Meanwhile, it made no difference who sold us the oil, whether it was from Saddam or the Saudis and the Gulf States. Unfortunately, like the son, the father was also extremely incompetent in his own right.

          • Americana

            Bulloney. No American President goes to war over a personal grudge. Carrying a personal grudge may make winning the war feel better but the main reasons for waging war are the larger American strategy. Those reasons have got nothing to do w/daddy’s little boy tackling the Big Bad Yassin Assassin.There were larger foreign policy decisions Pres. Bush felt needed to be taken care of by securing at least one of the largest Muslim Middle Eastern countries and creating an American ally in the region.

            Even if his motivations were true, i.e., to eliminate Saddam and his weapons of mass destruction and to pursue his exceedingly fantasy based so-called “War on Terror” to bring the Islamic totalitarian world into the 21st century, the outcome, abject failure, was preordained, because like you GWB has miserably failed to understand the true nature of the Islamic totalitarian world that is also our eternal mortal enemy. Indeed, like a fool and like you as well, he ignorantly believes Islam to be a so-called religion of peace, as opposed to what it actually is.

            As for as the elimination of Ahmed Yassin goes by Israel, the Israelis should never have stopped until after every member of Hamas had been either killed or expelled. You never leave an open wound open to fester and to eventually infect your entire body.

          • MrEthiopian

            Israel is a democracy and is thought of by many Americans as akin to America, stuck between a rock and a hard place. When we look at Israel we see a reflection that is America. Many of us have family, heritage and personal links in Israel and think of it like an extension to our family, how can you not stand and fight with your family.

    I have never understood why, if allah hates the jews so much, he needs muslims to kill them for him – surely if he is all-powerful he can do the job himself.

    • Habbgun

      EXACTLY!!!! Why does Allah need a 9/11 or a Madrid bombing? Better yet if obedience was actually the entire objective why would the Creator even invent free will? The Moslem way makes sense for pagans. My idol is more powerful than your idol and will reward me for my violence.

      The all powerufl Lord does not need our obedience. He could have that. If automation was what he wanted he would have had that. The winds, the tides, the physical laws are all completely obedient. He needs our service. Our voluntary service born out of love and respect. He needs us to grow. He does not need us to be automatons. The Moslem needs to control us as if we are automatons. A Moslem may be a true Moslem but a true Moslem is not a monotheist.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The disheartening, though not entirely surprising, breakdown of talks between Israel and the Palestinians marked yet another failure by the two sides to come closer to an agreement that would usher the way for a Palestinian state.

    Actually, the breakdown of talks between Israel and the so-called Palestinians were inevitable, as the so-called Palestinians are in reality the proxies of the greater Islamic totalitarian world that is not only waging jihad perpetually against the infidel state of Israel to ultimately make Islam supreme in Israel, but also waging jihad perpetually against all infidels and all infidel states around the world to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world.

    Hence, the only solution to Israel’s jihad problem is also the only solution for the entire collective infidel world’s jihad problems, and that is to collectively defeat Islam, either by destroying all Muslims, which would be extremely violent and bloody, or otherwise by seizing Pakistan’s nuclear weapons arsenal, destroying Iran’s nuclear weapons program, seizing the Middle East oil fields, rendering the Islamic totalitarian world into total abject poverty, and then by totally isolating it.

    Of the two options, the latter is less violent but at the same time more risky. Of course, one of our first collective acts would have to be the reversal of all mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage to the infidel west.

    Anyone who thinks that Israel’s jihad problem is solvable alone, is incredibly delusional and extremely narrow-minded.

    • c0mm0ncenz

      Your suggestions are the best I’ve seen anywhere as a solution to this problem. They’re the only ones that fit reality. Here’s hoping western leaders will soon accept reality.

    I read the article and comments section and noticed its all one way.

Thank you Front Page Mag for saving my time :)

  • uleaveuswithnoalternative

    How can Israel negotiate peace with the vast military, religious and governmental system that is Islam; a system that has at its very core, the “divine mandate” to utterly and completely destroy Israel and every Jew on the planet?

    • Americana

      Because Islam in its individual representatives like Jordan’s King are willing to negotiate and they’re willing to hold to a peace. There may be crazy jihadis out there but there are also reliable Muslims who wish to make peace so their fears aren’t so great.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        The King of Jordan is considered to be an apostate by all mainstream orthodox Muslims, which is why those on the forefront of the rejuvenation of Islam are planning to target him and his kingdom for elimination just as soon as the timing is right. A moderate Muslim in the Islamic totalitarian world that meets the western infidel definition of being moderate is a blasphemous apostate that per the dictates of Islam must be executed. They will inevitably try to kill Jordan’s king just as soon as the timing is right, and when they do, you and your unhinged ilk will be singing the praises of the so-called Arab Spring like the delusional idiots you all are.

        • Americana

          It doesn’t matter what those other Muslim jihadis consider him. The fact is his family legacy is that they had the guts and the foresight to have stood up to what their fellow Arabs would throw at them as far as being called Arab traitors and they signed a peace treaty w/Israel.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Actually, the family has been blessed with the power to maintain and hold on to their power in Jordan and not to be executed for blasphemy and apostasy. How long he will be able to hold out and maintain that power is another story. I hope he does, but won’t be surprised in the least to see him sooner or later flee Jordan to live in exile eventually. His time is coming sooner probably rather than later.

        • Lanna

          The King of Jordan is civilized, at least toward Israel as was Hosni Mubarak….this is why Islam wants them removed so they can put their radical Muslim leaders into power, who want to cause destruction to Israel!

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Actually, since waging jihad in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims, and because Islam is a so-called religion that executes all apostates and all blasphemers, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, including the millions that have migrated to America for the nefarious purposes of mass Muslim infiltration and eventual demographic conquest. Otherwise, they are executed for apostasy and blasphemer according to the dictates of Islam.

            Since all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, it is ludicrous to call them radicals and extremists. Meanwhile, a so-called moderate Muslim in Islam would be considered to be a blasphemous apostate, and blasphemous apostates in Islam are summarily executed.

            Today, the King of Jordan meets the criteria for being a classic moderate Muslim and as such he is considered to be a moderate Muslim by clueless western infidels. However, in Islamic society he is a blasphemous apostate that must be executed per the dictates of Islam. Now, of course, since he is the ruler of Jordan, he is adequately protected from execution. Nonetheless, he is considered to be an apostate ruler by virtually all Muslims in the world and as such he eventually must be ousted and executed the same way Gadaffi was executed.

            A so-called moderate Muslim, a person of Islamic persuasion that would meet the western infidel criteria of being moderate, in Islam by definition is a blasphemous apostate that must be executed. Such people to the extent that they haven’t been executed yet are in reality ex-Muslim apostates, and apostasy in Islam is a capital offense. In other words, there are no moderate Muslims in Islam except for in the unhinged mind of Americana, in which case they form the majority of Muslims.

  • Hank Rearden

    This article leaves out the most important element – the Islamic moderates, who make up the bulk of Islam. I am sure they have come forward and put these fanatics in their place.

    • uleaveuswithnoalternative

      I wish that I could meet a few of these Islamic moderates that everyone speaks of.
      Several years ago, I lived in a relatively small city and Muslims in that city spoke out when one of their own decided to detonate a bomb meant to kill thousands.
      Unfortunately for this junior jihadist, the “bomb” turned out to be a dummy assembled by FBI agents.
      After the attempted bombing, the Muslim community in our small city, wasted no time in issuing several statements.
      Their first statement (and I paraphrase), “Muslims are here to stay in ___ (name of city). We are not going anywhere. We will not tolerate any discrimination.”
      All statements issued after that, proclaimed the absolute innocence of the Muslim male who tried to blow up people in the town’s square and how the FBI had lured an innocent and impressionable young boy into a trap meant to discredit all Muslims.
      I’m still waiting for those “moderate” Muslims to speak out against anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, FGM, misogyny, pedophilia, blood shed, violence and murder.

  • Americana

    Not at all. Pres. Obama is in the unenviable position of being the sponsor or Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The fact the situation has reached the breaking point is part and parcel of Israeli foreign policy up till this point. There are many Israelis who are beginning to break ranks w/this approach. Look at the web site below for those Israelis who say peace must be pursued and must be pursued now.

    As things stand, more and more powerful Israeli military figures are now willing to state that peace is possible.

    http://israelipeaceinitiative.com/israeli-peace-initiative-english/signatories/

    All 6 of the former directors of Shin Bet have been interviewed for a movie titled ‘The Gatekeepers’ about the role Shin Bet plays in keeping Israel safe. They are all convinced that it’s possible to make peace w/the Palestinians. Watch the trailer.

The Arabs swear daily they want to annihilate us, yet there are some who think giving them part of our land will suffice to make them peaceful? is this not insane?

    The revisionists have done an amazing job of deconstructing the Holohoax myth. Thanks to the Internet, no reasonable informed person believes in it any longer.

    That being said, we keep hearing over and over again about jews being persecuted. Yet, when you search the entire Internet for videos of modern, verifiable violent attacks on jews for being jews, you get nothing. Videos of black on White attacks hushed up by the media are everywhere on the Internet – but jews being attacked for being jews, you find nothing.

    It is far more accurately, today and historically, to call Whites a persecuted group.

    Speaki of John Kerry and Jews–I wonder how many people know that he is a Jew himself ? That is the truth ; John Kerry’s name is actully CONAN or maybe it’s spelled ” Cohen ” , I forget the exact way to spell it, but he is definately a Jew. He changed his name years ago because he thought it somehow stigmatized him .
    That he is actually Jewish makes no difference to me , but citizens have a right to know the facts —whether it’s a politicion’s name, ideas, memberships, religion or race .
    Maybe it WOULD bother some people though….like .say…all those Muslim dignitaries he visits to negotiate with as America Secretary of State . Sounds potentialy chilling to me !

  • garyfouse

    Part of the problem is that Kerry, aside from being stubborn and arrogant, is also a rather stupid man. He heads a dept. that even under the best of administrations is made up of pseudo-intellectual people who are utterly divorced from the average American. They are diplomats, and they practice diplomacy for the sheer sake of diplomacy even when diplomacy is hopeless and counter productive. I know. I had to deal with these clowns when I was stationed in Thailand and Italy with DEA and in DEA’s International Training section. In a sense, arrogant people like H Clinton and Kerry are a perfect fit for DOS.

    Someone needs to tell these people that there is no solution. It is not about who owned what piece of land prior to 1948. It is religion, pure and simple. The Muslims will never accept a Jewish state in land they consider to be Muslim. It is non-negotiable.

  • StEwPiD_MoNkEy

    Every single Israeli and Palestinian that is fighting for land that “belongs” to them are pure morons.
