Internation Criminal Court charges Frodo Baggins with war crimes (07.08.2002)


HumorThe United States and Israel are very distrustful of the new UN International Criminal Court. You can see Israel's reasons here.

In a shocking development, FactsOfIsrael.com has learned that Frodo Baggins from "The Lords of the Ring" has been charged with war crimes - the accusation is brought by Sauron the Dark Lord:

Frodo Baggins of Bagshot Row, Hobbiton, The Shire, Middle Earth, has been called before the International Criminal Court to answer charges of war crimes brought by Sauron the Dark Lord and Saruman the White in a joint filing. [...]

Baggins was responsible for casting the Ring of Power (otherwise known as the One Ring or simply the One) into the fires of Mount Orodruin in Mordor ("Where The Shadows Lie!" according to the Mordor Tourism Board), thereby destroying both the Ring and Sauron's long-standing hope to bring heretofore fractious and inefficient Middle Earth under the central political control of the Dark Tower. Without the Ring, Sauron's legions (defensive in nature and made necessary by the Lords of the West's aggression, according to Barad-Dur spokesmen) of orcs, wolves, trolls, and "evil" Men lost the will to fight and became helpless in the face of the armies of the West. Millions were slaughtered as a direct and immediate consequence of the destruction of the Ring.

Baggins was defended in a public statement released by Gandalf the Grey, a well-known right-wing wizard and co-conspirator of Baggins himself. "Frodo made Middle-Earth safe for democracy and now this is how he's repaid - by facing imprisonment because of a suit brought by the very enemies of freedom! The world's press is only humiliating themselves by siding with the Servants of the Lidless Eye on this. They have left the path of wisdom." Gandalf's statement was published in the National Review and certain fascist online journals, known as "warblogs" to their purveyors and media watchdog groups. The New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and most other mainstream newspapers refused to publish the statement, calling it "biased and self-serving propaganda from a known cohort of Mr. Baggins."

Update! In an expression of support for the Dark Lord, demonstrators in France have burned three synagogues to the ground.

Israeli Arab Muslim mob lynches porno actress (12.28.2002)


NewsIsraeli TV Channel 1 reports that a mob of angry Arab Muslim men lynched an Israeli Arab woman who had taken a part in a porno movie.




Amal Kashua, the first Israeli
Arab/Muslim woman in a porno movie


Amal Kashua, an Israeli Arab/Muslim mother of 8, took part in a porno movie with her partner, Yusuf. Last week, a mob of angry out-of-control Israeli Arab Muslims from the village of Tira attacked her with clubs and rocks. Amal is in an Israeli hospital, in serious condition.

The report starts with an Arab Israeli woman covered in a burka. She categorically says that “any woman who takes part in something like this [a porno movie] should be judged and condemned to death”.

Fatma Kashua, Amal’s mother, has published an article, declaring that her daughter is dead in her eyes. Amal’s family, including her kids, also completely reject her and do not wish to ever meet her again. Amal is not only beat up but is also very much alone.

The Imam of the Arab Muslim city of Tira, Hazi El-Hamdan, is interviewed and declares that “this is a direct attack on Islam coming through atrocities from the West”, and “Muslims have the right to defend themselves – she should be killed”.




Amal, mother of 8, beat up
by an angry Muslim mob


A few Israeli Arab Muslim men were arrested after the lynch. Israeli TV interviewed two thugs who categorically said they “don’t need the law from the Knesset [Israel’s parliament]”. What they need is “Islamic law, where we could stone this woman to death, to maintain Islamic values”. I guess this is the Islamic version of women rights - Amal has the right to be stoned to death, like any other Muslim woman.

What I find distressing is the fact that the whole Arab/Muslim village was unanimous in not only condemning Amal Kashua for her acts, but they all wish to use violence and murder her. They all think that Islamic law is above Israel’s laws and that they are allowed take the law into their own hands.

The report ends with Amal’s mother saying that she would never accept her daughter back, even if Amal apologized.

Orthodox Jewish basketball player and Jewish Rapper (07.25.2002)


HumorHa'aretz (www.haaretzdaily.com) reports that Tamir Goodman has signed a three-year deal with the Maccabi Tel-Aviv basketball team.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv plays in the European league - it was the Euroleague's champion in 2001 and reached the semi-finals this year - Maccabi is considered one of the best teams in Europe.



Tamir Goodman, the 'Jewish Jordan'


"I've always wanted to play in Israel and be in my country," Goodman said Monday."

Goodman's brilliant high-school career led to his nickname "Jewish Jordan." In games for "Talmudic Academy" in Baltimore, Goodman averaged more than 35 points per game, an ability that drew the attention of writers from the New York Times and Sports Illustrated, as well as documentary film-makers from both sides of the Atlantic.

The fact that Goodman was an Orthodox Jew, wore a yarmulke and refused to play on the Sabbath captivated many, especially when it appeared he was headed to College Park.


While looking for more info on Tamir Goodman, I stumbled upon the site of Etan G., the "Jewish Rapper". Etan wrote a song about Tamir Goodman, called "The kid with the lid", click here to check it out.

French Minister of Foreign Affairs says Jews Sharon controls the United States (03.05.2003)


Anti-SemitismThe Dissident Frogman reports that Villepin, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, has declared that the Jews Sharon controls the American government:

Apparently, Oily de Villepin received several "Atlantists" representatives (Atlantists being this small handful of pro American French congressmen - yep, I didn't know they existed either) at the Quay d'Orsay last week to lecture tell them that:

"Sharon has the American administration's Hawks in hand. "

I had to read that twice. And then, two times more.

He said "Sharon" of course. Then why do I feel this unpleasant taste of bile in my mouth?

Is it because we already heard French ministers, Premiers or not, belching about an "international Jewish plot" and the "Jew pulling the strings in the backstage" ?

But then he said "Sharon" of course.

This thug is France's Minister of Foreign Affairs


You then wonder why French synagogues mysteriously go up in flames. I copy the original article (in French) below.

A esquerda nao se preocupa dos direitos das mulheres, democracia, ou direitos de homossexuais (Portugues) (08.26.2002)


OpinionO site Brasileiro Pletz.com (www.pletz.com) tem um bom artigo que pergunta porque a esquerda apoia incondicionalmente os árabes-palestinos em sua guerra contra Israel?

A esquerda fala de sua paixão pela democracia (“a voz do povo…”). Mas é exatamente em Israel que a democracia funciona plenamente, em contraposição ao que ocorre com todos os que o consideram como inimigo: países árabes e islâmicos. Arafat é um líder autoritário, ditador corrupto, mas a esquerda o adula, protege e defende.

A esquerda diz preocupar-se com os direitos da Mulher. Mas é exatamente em Israel que este conceito é plenamente aceito e assegurado, existindo mesmo já antes da proclamação da sua independência em 1948. Israel foi o primeiro país a integrar as mulheres às suas forças armadas e nas polícias, prática que hoje é corriqueiramente adotada pela maioria dos países ocidentais. Concomitantemente, a situação dos direitos da Mulher nas nações islâmicas é a mais deplorável dentre todos os países do Planeta.

Uma das maiores preocupações da esquerda refere-se aos direitos dos homossexuais. Mas é ainda em Israel que os seus direitos são respeitados e assegurados, enquanto que no Egito e outros países árabes e/ou islâmicos a homossexualidade é considerada crime e o infrator é severamente punido, amargando longas penas de prisão.

Interview with a Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber (05.30.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) interviewed a Palestinian woman who was on her way to become a suicide bomber, but a the last moment changed her mind. The IDF (Israel's army) arrested her a couple of days ago, and she spoke with the press yesterday.

She had an explosive belt, packed with nails and other metal objects stitched into the lining, strapped around her body during a 45-minute training session in Nablus two days before the scheduled attack. Hamamreh was arrested at her aunt's home in Tulkarm on May 20, the day of the planned attack.

She said doubts had begun to gnaw at her mind, along with seeds of disillusionment regarding her handlers and their motives, during the 24 hours between the dry run and the intended bombing.

The instructions she received unleashed a series of doubts, primarily over the "righteousness" of the operation and whether her prime motivation, which was of a personal nature rather than a pure religious belief, would weigh against her when she confronted God after her death.

"I also began to imagine the people I would be killing, whether they would be women and children, families sitting down at a cafe. I became a bit disillusioned, because I had been told to blow myself up in any event," she said.

"This meant to me that what was important for them was to succeed in perpetrating an attack, whether there were casualties or not, and then they would be able to pat themselves on the back. I felt like they were playing a game with the blood of the martyrs."

We got him: mass murderer Saddam Hussein captured by the United States army! (12.14.2003)


NewsThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that brave soldiers from the American army have captured the ex-President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein. He was literally hiding like a rat in a hole when a unit of over 600 US soldiers got him - not one shot was fired:


US President George Bush, a winner,
and Saddam Hussein, a mass murderer looser


"Ladies and gentlemen, we got him," L. Paul Bremer, the US administrator for Iraq, said Sunday. "The tyrant is a prisoner." Saddam Hussein was captured alive near his hometown of Tikrit, Bremer said.

Speaking a few hours later, US President George W. Bush said Hussein will "face the justice he denied to millions." Locals say a farmer named Kais al-Namek betrayed the former Iraqi dictator.

"This is a great day in Iraqi history," Bremer said. "For decades, hundreds of thousands suffered at the hands of this cruel man. He threatened and attacked his neighbors. Those days are over forever." Calling out to the Iraqi people, Bremer said "Your future has never been more full of hope."

"Today is a great day for the democratic world," said [Israeli] Prime Minister Ariel Sharon after sending his blessings to US President Gearge W. Bush. "The whole world can now breath easier. The dictator who ruined Iraq can do no more harm."


On a personal note, Saddam Hussein is one of the few people that have directly threatened my life, when he fired dozens of missiles on Israeli cities in 1991, during the first Gulf war. Every day I had to run to the bomb shelter hoping that one of Saddam's "Scud" missiles did not blow me to pieces or did not contain gas or chemicals (Israel by the way never attacked Iraq or retaliated during the whole Gulf war). This is a happy day!

Three unarmed civilians murdered by Palestinian genocide bomber, over 40 wounded (07.17.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian genocide bomber blew himself up in Tel-Aviv killing 3 unarmed civilians.

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up seconds apart in Tel Aviv on Wednesday evening, killing three other people and wounding 40, police said.

National Police Chief Yossi Sedbon said two of the victims were foreign workers and the third had not yet been identified. Of the wounded, five were in serious condition, he said.

The attack took place on Neve Shaanan street in the southern part of the downtown area, near the city's old central bus station. Ambulances and police raced to the scene and closed off the area.

The area is crowded with small shops and stalls. Many foreign workers live in the rundown neighborhood. Israel Radio said most of the casualties were foreign workers. The bomb went off at the entrance to the Central Theater, near a cafe.

The British magazine 'The Economist' is Anti-Israeli and Anti-Semitic (07.09.2002)


OpinionThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has published an article with many examples on how the British magazine 'The Economist' is biased against Israel

The Economist has also shown remarkably little interest in the humanitarian tragedies endured by Israelis. Having reviewed dozens of stories, I have yet to see one that names a single victim of terror, or dwells on the consequences for the victim's family, or allows an Israeli voice to have the last word in the story. [...]

[For 'The Economist'] Prime Minister Ariel Sharon represents Israel's "uglier face" (October 7, 2000); he is a calculated liar (April 21, 2001), whose modus operandi is "calculated brutality" (March 10, 2001). In electing him last year, Israelis were in a "bolshie mood" (February 3, 2001). [...]

The picture drawn here is, of course, a familiar one -- a demonic one. Sharon, the Jewish counterpart to Hamas's Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. Sharon, the brutish but ineffectual hardliner. Sharon, the quack. Sharon, the mass killer of Arabs. Indeed, reading the news coverage of The Economist, one almost suspects it cribs its lines from Arab press, complete with gross errors of fact. Sharon, for the record, crossed the canal on October 16, 1973, six days before the ceasefire was declared.

I BEGAN this piece by citing what in my view is the single most egregious line published in any mainstream magazine about Israel in recent memory. The implication is clear. Israelis - Jews - are unusually clever. And Israelis - Jews - are also unusually greedy. This is, of course, a transparent anti-Semitic canard, the most enduring and the most obvious. The editors of The Economist could not but have known what they were doing when they wrote those words.


I know three people that read 'The Economist" regularly. They are all extremely anti-Israel, support the Palestinian right of return, and couldn't give a damn about Israeli victims of Palestinian terrorism.

Israel has won the war on Palestinian Terrorism (06.18.2004)


OpinionThe Houston Chronicle (www.chron.com) has an excellent article by Charles Krauthammer that describes how Israel has effectively won the war against the current wave of Palestinian terrorism that started in October 2000 (click here for more details).

I generally only show excerpts on the FactsOfIsrael.com main page, but this analysis by Mr. Krauthammer, so I am reproducing the full article:

Intifada is over and Israel's the winner
By CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, June 18, 2004
http://www.chron.com/cs/
CDA/ssistory.mpl/editorial/2633505


While no one was looking, something historic has happened in the Middle East. The Palestinian intifada is over, and the Palestinians have lost.

For Israel, the victory is bitter. The last four years of terrorism have killed almost 1,000 Israelis and maimed thousands of others. But Israel has won strategically. The intent of the intifada was to demoralize Israel, destroy its economy, bring it to its knees and thus force it to withdraw and surrender to Palestinian demands, just as Israel withdrew in defeat from southern Lebanon in May 2000.

That did not happen. Israel's economy was certainly wounded, but it is growing again. Tourism had dwindled to almost nothing at the height of the intifada, but tourists are returning. And the Israelis were never demoralized. They kept living their lives, the young people in particular returning to cafes and discos and buses just hours after a horrific bombing. Israelis turned out to be a lot tougher and braver than the Palestinians had imagined.

The end of the intifada does not mean the end of terrorism. There was terrorism before the intifada and there will be terrorism to come. What has happened, however, is an end to systematic, regular, debilitating, unstoppable terror — terror as a reliable weapon. At the height of the intifada, there were 9 suicide attacks in Israel killing 85 Israelis in just one month (March 2002). In the last three months, there have been none.

The overall level of violence has been reduced by more than 70 percent. How did Israel do it? By ignoring its critics and launching a two-pronged campaign of self-defense.

First, Israel targeted terrorist leaders — attacks so hypocritically denounced by Westerners who, at the same time, cheer the hunt for, and demand the head of, Osama bin Laden. The top echelon of Hamas and other terror groups has been either arrested, killed, or driven underground. The others are now so afraid of Israeli precision and intelligence — the last Hamas operative to be killed by missile was riding a motorcycle — that they are forced to devote much of their time and energy to self-protection and concealment.

Second, the fence. Only about a quarter of the separation fence has been built, but its effect is unmistakable. The northern part is already complete, and attacks into northern Israel have dwindled to almost nothing.

This success does not just save innocent lives. It changes the strategic equation of the whole conflict.

Yasser Arafat started the intifada in September 2000, just weeks after he had rejected at Camp David Israel's offer of withdrawal, settlement evacuation, sharing of Jerusalem and establishment of a Palestinian state. Arafat wanted all that, of course, but without having to make peace and recognize a Jewish state. Hence the terror campaign — to force Israel to give it all up unilaterally.

Arafat failed, spectacularly. The violence did not bring Israel to its knees. Instead, it created chaos, lawlessness and economic disaster in the Palestinian areas. The Palestinians know the ruin that Arafat has brought and they are beginning to protest it. He promised them blood and victory; he delivered on the blood.

Even more important, they have lost their place at the table. Israel is now defining a new equilibrium that will reign for years to come — the separation fence is unilaterally drawing the line that separates Israelis and Palestinians. The Palestinians were offered the chance to negotiate that frontier at Camp David, and chose war instead. Now they are paying the price.

It stands to reason. It is the height of absurdity to launch a terror war against Israel, then demand the right to determine the nature and route of the barrier built to prevent that very terror.

These new strategic realities are not just creating a new equilibrium, they are creating the first hope for peace since Arafat officially tore up the Oslo accords four years ago. Once Israel has withdrawn from Gaza and has completed the fence, terror as a strategic option will be effectively dead. The only way for the Palestinians to achieve statehood and dignity, and to determine the contours of their own state, will be to negotiate a final peace based on genuine coexistence with a Jewish state.

It could be a year, five years or a generation until the Palestinians come to that realization. The pity is that so many, Arab and Israeli, will have had to die before then.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad murders 15 unarmed civilians (10.22.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that the Palestinian terrorist group Islamic Jihad blew up a a car stuffed with over 220 pounds of explosives next to a bus in northern Israel, murdering 15 people and wounding over 50. A 2-year-old and a 4-year-old kid are critically injured, still fighting for their lives.



The Palestinian Islamic Jihad
Deliberately murdered 15 people,
trapped inside the bus


"I cannot forget what I saw today people were burned alive inside my bus," said driver Haim Avraham, who escaped with light wounds.

"[The terrorist] drove straight into my fuel tank," he said. "The bus was thrust into the air and I was thrown off my seat by the blast. I got out of the bus as quickly as I could through the front door, together with two or three elderly passengers. I helped drag some wounded people as far away from the bus as possible. [...]

"I saw it all in front of my eyes, from a distance of about 20 meters," he said. "My windscreen shattered and my car burst into flames. I walked away, in shock, until somebody grabbed me and told me to sit down. I was covered in blood."

Dayan's burns and multiple cuts from the broken glass were classified as light wounds. His car was burned completely.


Let's hope the victims recover soon and that the murderers from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad get what they deserve.

Israel moves its troops and citizens out of the Gaza Strip (08.18.2005)


NewsThe Washington Post (www.washingtonpost.com) reports that Israel has decided to move its troops and civilians out of the the Gaza Strip:

Israel's abandonment of the Gaza Strip this month is, of course, one more chapter in a long history of turmoil in the Middle East. [...]



On the first day of the Israeli government's forced removal of Gaza settlers, young people -- Jews -- pleaded with other young people -- also Jews -- who had been dispatched to eject them from their homes. There was, perhaps miraculously, almost no violence in Gaza [...] but there was lots of confrontation.



[...] And so the cable news networks seemed to loop the same scenes of mostly passive resistance, as their correspondents intoned about the "emotional" nature of the pullout. Here, a young man with a battering ram breaks in the door of a Jewish home. Over there, young men are being carted off bodily by younger men wearing green. Here again, a young woman in a long skirt is being swept away, this time by a phalanx of female soldiers.


Israel has had a presence in the Gaza Strip since 1967, when armies from different Arab Muslim countries (Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, etc...) tried to destroy the Jewish State and murder her citizens. Fortunately Israel won the war and has since then controlled the Gaza Strip (for more details see the Maps and the History pages).

It is important to note that Israel decided to get out of Gaza unilaterally. This was not the result of a peace treaty with the Palestinians, but was a decision by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his cabinet: they came to the conclusion that it is in Israel's interest to remove its troops and citizens from Gaza. It will take a few days for the Israeli Army and Police to remove over 9,000 civilians in 21 different towns.

I copy below the full article; for more information on Israel's moving out of Gaza, click here. My thoughts are with the families moving out of Gaza and the young soldiers and policemen that have to confront them.

14-year-old girl murdered by Palestinian homicide bomber (03.13.2003)


VictimsIsrael Insider (www.israelinsider.com) tells the story of 14-year-old Abigail Litle who was deliberately murdered by a Palestinian homicide bomber last week:




Abigail Litle, 14

Murdered by a Palestinian terrorist


Abigail Litle, 14, was one of 16 people killed by a Palestinian bomber who blew himself up on a Haifa bus on Wednesday. The daughter of a Baptist minister who brought his family to Israel in 1989 when she was seven months old, she was laid to rest in the presence of hundreds of people who gathered in the Christian section of a small cemetery near the Mediterranean shores in Haifa. [...]

Speaking for her classmates, Sarit Ben-Kiki said Litle had become their "guardian angel." "We will remember you always," Ben-Kiki said. "We won't forget our angel."

The high school's principal, Zvika Reiter, described Abigail as having been mature for her age and cheerful. Her brother Joshua said, "My sister was a creative girl who loved everyone. Her first love was for humanity, and after that, nature." He added, "She always believed that God loves her and wouldn't let anything happen to her. But in the end the pain and sadness has reached us as well."

Abigail and Yuval Mendelevitch, also killed in the bombing, had been part of the "Children Teaching Children" program at the Jewish-Arab Center for Peace at Givat Haviva since last September. The program teaches pluralism, tolerance and coexistence. They and their classmates were preparing for the upcoming encounter with Arab youth from a neighboring town in just a few days.


Hundreds of men, women and children have been deliberately murdered by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas since Arafat and his thugs decided to turn down peace in October 2000.
