Islamic Mass Murderers kill 20 in Synagogues bombings in Istanbul (11.15.2003)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that racist Islamic mass murderers (probably from Al-Qaeda) have killed 20 and injured hundreds in two car bombings in front of synagogues in Istanbul, Turkey:

At least twenty people were killed and 260 wounded in near-simultaneous bombings of two Istanbul synagogues on Saturday morning.

Two cars exploded at about 9:30am at Nevei Shalom Synagogue, the city's largest, and at Beth Israel Synagogue in the affluent district of Shishli about 5 kilometers (3 miles) away. [...]

An Israeli visitor at the scene in Shishli told Army Radio that the explosion appeared to have affected the 2nd floor more than the first, and that many of the injured are women. Television footage showed a 1.5m crater near the synagogue. [...]

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon expressed "shock and outrage" at the attacks and sent Israel's condolences to the Turkish people. The Prime Minister also said he had full confidence in Turkey's ability to find those responsible for the attacks and bring them to justice. The Bush administration condemned the atack, saying that the US would stand by its allies in the war against terrorism.

Israel will follow the law of judges sitting in Jerusalem; will ignore Kangaroo court from the Hague (07.10.2004)

OpinionThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has a good analysis by Prof. Dershowitz on how Israel will ignore the decision made by the International Kangaroo Court of the Hague. This group of clown judges has decided that Israel's security fence is "against the law":

The Supreme Court of Israel recognized the unquestionable reality that the security fence has saved numerous lives and promises to save more, but it also recognized that this benefit must be weighed against the material disadvantages to West Bank Palestinians. The International Court, on the other hand, discounted the saving of lives and focused only on the Palestinian interests. By showing its preference for Palestinian property rights over the lives of Jews, the International Court displayed its bigotry.

[...] The decision of the International Court of Justice against Israel should harm the reputation of that court in the minds of objective observers rather than damage the credibility of Israel. The Israeli government will comply with the rule of law by following the decision of its own Supreme Court.

If the International Court of Justice were itself to apply the rule of law instead of the calculus of politics, it might deserve respect. Now like the general assembly of which it's a creation and the Mississippi courts of the 1930s of which it's a clone all it deserves is the contempt of decent people for its bigoted processes and its predetermined partisan result.

Prof. Dershowitz wrote this article the day before the International Court rendered this opinion because he was certain based on the composition of the court that its verdict would be against Israel. Following the decision he did not have to change a single word.

I, and most Israelis, accuse the judges sitting in the Hague of never standing up for the Israeli children who are deliberately murdered by mass murdering bastards from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

This decision has made it very clear: while the International Kangaroo Court of Justice holds us to certain standards, the same brain dead judges from the Hague never hold the Palestinians responsible for deliberately murdering and slaughtering Israeli women and children.

I, and most Israelis, will ignore what the International Kangaroo Court of Justice has decided. I, and most Israelis, will do everything we can to stop the barbaric Islamic mass murderers from the Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa Brigades. I, and most Israelis are tired of this hypocrisy from the United Nations and Europe - how can people that do not live under Islamic terror judge Israel who has to face Palestinian barbarism on a daily basis?

Since Israel has started building its security fence the Palestinian mass murderers have had a much harder time in executing their homicide bombings. For more details, including a graph that shows how the number of homicide bombings has decreased, click here or here. The fence has saved many lives already and it's definitely here to stay.

Racist high ranking Palestinian Politician calls Israel "a Satanic offspring that cannot exist among human beings" (02.15.2004)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Independent Media Review Analysis website (www.imra.org.il) has translated a racist interview given on Palestinian TV by Ahmad Nasser, the Secretary of the
"Palestinian Legislative Council":

A top Palestinian Authority official insists that Israel has no right to exist because it is "Satan's offspring," founded on theft and racism.

In an interview broadcast Feb. 6 on PATV, Ahmad Nasser, Secretary of the Palestinian Legislative Council, asserts that Israel cannot exist "among human beings" because it was "founded on the basis of robbery, terror, killing, torture, assassination, death, stealing land and killing people."

His comments reflect the PA's continuing campaign to challenge and deny Israel's right to exist.

The interview also cites 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion', the infamous Russian forgery that was presented as the Jews' secret plan to rule the world, as the basis for the recent exchange of 400 Arab prisoners for one Israeli and the bodies of three soldiers. Nasser says the prisoner exchange is part of Israel's plan to show that a Jewish life is worth more than an Arab life, and proves that Israel is a "racist country" that "hates all the goyim, all the foreigners."

This excuse for a political leader is not part of the delusional Palestinian Islamic Jihad, but is part of Arafat's secular group, which is supposedly more moderate. Unfortunately, it seems that today even Palestinian "moderates" call Israel "a Satanic offspring" and wish for her destruction and the genocide of her citizens.

It is not "despair" that pushes the Palestinian mass murderers to slaughter Israeli women and children. It's racism, incitement, intolerance and hate - luckily Israel has a strong army and a strong will to defend herself and survive.

Terrorists attack Israeli tourists in Kenya - 12 people murdered, including two Israeli children, over 80 injured (11.27.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post reports on a terrorist attack against Israeli tourists in Kenya:

KIKAMBALA, Kenya - Three suicide bombers attacked an Israeli-owned beach hotel Thursday, killing 12 other people minutes after at least two missiles were fired at an Israeli airliner taking off from the nearby airport.

Officials suspected al-Qaida terrorists were behind the nearly simultaneous attacks. The dead included two Israeli brothers aged 12 and 13 years [Note: Israeli radio reports that the brothers are aged 8 and 10]. [...]

At about 8:35 a.m. (0530 GMT), a green all-terrain vehicle packed with explosives rammed through the gate of the Paradise Hotel in Kikambala, an Indian Ocean beach resort 20 kilometers (15 miles) north of Mombasa, police said. One man jumped out and blew himself up inside the hotel, while the others detonated the vehicle out front, witnesses said. [...]

In Beirut, Lebanon, a previously unknown group calling itself "Government of Universal Palestine in Exile, The Army of Palestine" claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying they were to mark the 55th anniversary of the partition of Palestine between Arabs and Jews that led to the establishment of the state of Israel.

The attack on the civilian airplane by the terrorists is a clear escalation of the conflict, and I heard Prime Minister Sharon on Israeli radio saying that he'll respond accordingly.

Iraq calls shuttle space Columbia explosion "God's vengence" (02.02.2003)

NewsReuters (www.reuters.com) reports that Iraq believes that the explosion of the space shuttle Columiba is "God's vengence":

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Immediate popular reaction in Baghdad on Saturday to the loss of the U.S. space shuttle Columbia and its seven-member crew -- including the first Israeli in space -- was that it was God's retribution.

"We are happy that it broke up," government employee Abdul Jabbar al-Quraishi said.

"God wants to show that his might is greater than the Americans. They have encroached on our country. God is avenging us," he said. [...]

Car mechanic Mohammed Jaber al-Tamini noted Israeli air force Colonel Ilan Ramon was among the dead when the shuttle broke up over the southwestern United States 16 minutes before its scheduled landing.

The 48-year-old Israeli astronaut was a fighter pilot in the Israeli air force. He was the youngest pilot in a team that bombed Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981. Israel said the reactor was intended to develop nuclear weapons.

"Israel launched an aggression on us when it raided our nuclear reactor without any reason, now time has come and God has retaliated to their aggression," Tamini said.

During the Gulf war in 1991, Iraq launched missiles targetting Israeli civilians. Israel never retaliated but the bombings continued until Iraq lost the war. See the History page for details.

Another Palestinian Homicide/Suicide Bombing: 3 dead, dozens of injured (05.19.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismAt 4:00 PM local time, a Palestinian blew himself in a crowded Israeli market trying to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible.

The Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber is part of the PFLP, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. This group wishes for the destruction of Israel and the creation of a Palestinian state instead. It is responsible for the murder of Rahavam Ze'evi, who was Israel's Minister of Tourism when he was killed.

"Two bodies were found at the scene of the attack, one of which was most likely that of the suicide bomber. Two other Israelis succumbed to their injuries after reaching the hospital. One of the injured was in critical condition, eight were in serious condition, five sustained moderate wounds, and the rest were lightly injured"

NPR proud of Palestinians that murdered 11 Israeli athletes in the Olympic games of Munich, 1972 (09.05.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismThe following article is part of a blogburst - a simultaneous and cross-linked posting of many blogs on the same theme. This blogburst commemorates the Munich Olympics Massacre which began in the dawn hour of September 5th, 1972. Go to the The Index of the Munich Massacre Blogburst to find links to all the other articles.

Palestinian Terrorists murder 11 Israeli Athletes
at the Olympic games in Munich, Germany, 1972

At 5:00 AM, exactly 30 years ago, a seminal event in the development of modern terrorism took place. Eight Palestinian terrorists invaded the athletes' housing at the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. They killed and took hostage eleven Israeli athletes competing in the Games, demanding the release of 234 imprisoned Arabs and German terrorists. Over the next few tension-filled days, all the hostages and some of the terrorists were killed, mostly due to incompetence and perfidy of the German government. The Olympic Committee made a controversial decision to continue the Games, and has never participated in any memorial for the slain athletes. Eventually almost all the remaining terrorists were hunted down and killed by Israeli agents, directed by then Prime Minister Golda Meir.

A few days ago I listened to a story on National Public Radio (NPR) that covered the murder of the Israelis by the Palestinian terrorists.

Although the hosts did briefly disapprove of the murders, the story quickly turned to a tacit endorsement of the action for "putting the Palestinian cause on the map". The host Brooke Gladstone spends a large part of the segment interviewing Brigitte Nacos, a Columbia University professor and author of "Mass-Mediated Terrorism", who is clearly proud of these Palestinians for bringing attention to their cause.

I felt sick.

NPR and its local San Francisco station KQED are well known for their anti-Israeli stance, but they have gone a bit too far. The host Brooke Gladstone mentions that an Al-Qaeda member is proud of the Munich murders:

BROOKE GLADSTONE: Writing in an on-line publication, Al Anssar, an Al Qaeda activist called the Black September, quote, "the greatest media victory and the first true proclamation to the entire world the Palestinian resistance movement. The Munich operation was a great propaganda strike."

But that doesn't mean NPR (which receives public funds) should be. Here's an example:

BRIGITTE NACOS: Two years later it was very different, because they struck at the Olympics where you had the television facilities built up for that special event. Independent experts have estimated that it was between 600 and 800 million globally, so that was a major, major coup for these few Palestinians.

BROOKE GLADSTONE: And so you think that the publicity coup that the Olympics afforded was very much on the mind of the Black September terrorists?

BRIGITTE NACOS: Well at least according to one of them. Three of them survived. Five were killed. And one of them later on in prison said that they wanted, among other things, to stir up the world. And they were certainly successful in not only getting the attention globally, but I think for the first time many people around the globe learned about the Palestinian cause.

Wow. Can you feel the admiration Brooke and Brigitte have for the Palestinian "freedom fighters"? Thank God they brought the Palestinian cause to the forefront of the liberals' agenda, otherwise how would Brooke and Brigitte hate the Jews Israelis settlers?

There were dozens of angles that NPR could have chosen to cover this story (in fact the Blog Burst does exactly that). Instead NPR chooses the one angle that is somewhat positive to the Palestinians: their success in bringing "their cause" to the world.

The media coverage of these Palestinians killing Israelis might have had an impact on the "global awareness" of the Palestinian issue, but NPR could show a little less enthusiasm for the deliberate murder of Olympic athletes.

To listen to the "Black September" special from NPR's "On the Media", click here. For the transcript, click here.

Oh, and please stop sending NPR and KQED money - if you need another reason, see "The deliberate killing of unarmed civilians is terrorism".

Now for the real story, here's a special report from Sports Illustrated (sportsillustrated.cnn.com):

Black September commandos climbed the fence about 50 minutes earlier than envisioned in Situation 21. [...]

As they approached the fence, they noticed another group in warmup gear: American athletes back from a night on the town, laughing and tipsy. Abu Daoud urged his comrades to join them, to use the Americans' innocent comportment as cover while they all scaled the fence. "Not only did our men mix in with the Americans, we helped them over," he says. "And they helped us. 'Hey, man, give me your bag.' This was surreal -- to see the Americans, obviously far from imagining they were helping Black September get into the Village." [...]

In any case Gutfreund apparently heard the rattling of the door at the threshold of that ground-floor duplex, the apartment the other Israelis called the Big Wheels' Inn because it housed senior members of the delegation. When the door cracked open in the darkness, he could make out the barrels of several weapons. He threw his 290 pounds against the door and shouted a warning: "Danger, guys! Terrorists!" For critical seconds Gutfreund succeeded in staying their entrance, allowing his roommate, weightlifting coach Tuvia Sokolovsky, to shatter a rear window and flee to safety through a backyard garden. But the terrorists, using their rifle barrels to crowbar their way inside, soon had Gutfreund subdued on the floor. Quickly they prized track coach Amitzur Shapira and shooting coach Kehat Shorr from one downstairs bedroom. When Issa opened the door to the other downstairs bedroom, wrestling coach Moshe Weinberg lunged at him with a kitchen knife that had been lying on a bedside table. Issa stumbled to the side, unhurt, while another fedayee fired a round from his Kalashnikov that tore through the side of Weinberg's mouth. [...]

By the early hours of the next day nine more Israelis were dead, along with five of the terrorists and a Munich policeman.

Grandmother of 11 deliberately murdered by a Palestinian genocide bomber (10.02.2002)

VictimsFaces of the Victims has published the story of Tirza Polonsky, a 66-year-old Israeli grandmother of 11 who was deliberately murdered by a genocide bomber from the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas ("Islamic Resistance").

Tirza Polonsky, 66
Murdered by a
Palestinian terrorist

On May 18, 2001, Tirza Polonsky, 66, of Moshav Kfar Haim was killed in a suicide bombing at Hasharon Mall in the seaside city of Netanya.

Tirza Polonsky was shopping in the Hasharon Mall as she does every Friday when the terrorist exploded the bomb he was carrying at the entrance to the shopping mall.

Four other people were killed in the blast and over 100 were injured.

Polonsky was a teacher for many years and worked at a community day-club in Hadera after her retirement. The day-club asked her to replace another teacher that fateful Friday, but she refused because she did not want to give up her day of shopping.

Tirza Polonsky is survived by a husband, three daughters, two sons and 11 grandchildren. She was laid to rest at the Kfar Haim cemetery.

Zaid of Palestine aspires to be an Adolph Hitler (08.13.2002)

HumorA few weeks ago, a Jordanian website published a few posters that portrayed western icons (Einstein, Freud, etc...) alongside Palestinian children. Its main message was that through the suicide bombings, Palestinian kids are "dying to live".

The website also contained a page with articles and opinions, many in support of the Palestinian genocide bombings. Basically it was a cover up that unsuccessfully tried to make western audiences forget that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians are happy and party when unarmed Israeli civilians are murdered, including babies and children.

It was all pretty well packed up but the guys at Vinyl Frontier, found out the real story behind the posters:

Zaid of Palestine aspires
to be an Adolph Hitler

Many Palestinian children actually desire to exterminate Jews and Israelis - this is done through brainwashing and Palestinan schoolbooks that glorify genocide bombers and deny the existance of the State of Israel. Many of these Palestinian children therefore aspire to nothing more than to become Hitlers.

Saddam Hussein gives $25,000 to families of Palestinian genocide bombers (07.22.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismSky News (www.sky.com) reports that Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi president, has given over $25 million to Palestinian terrorist groups in less than two years.

The cash is handed over at ceremonies in Gaza to relatives of suicide bombers and families of people killed in ongoing fighting. [...]

Suicide bombers and those killed by the Israelis are regarded as "martyrs" and revered as heroes by Palestinian militants.

At the ceremony Holland witnessed, a number of cheques for $10,000 each were handed over to relatives of people killed in the violence. But, she points out, those of suicide bombers get $25,000.

Palestinian terrorist blows himself up in market; tries to murder dozens of innocent Israelis (01.19.2006)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian terrorist from the terrorist group "Islamic Jihad" has blown himself in a market in Tel-Aviv:

In what security officials said was an attempt to generate anarchy within the Palestinian Authority in the run-up to next week's planned elections, an Islamic Jihad suicide bomber blew himself up on Thursday in a Tel Aviv shwarma stand injuring 30 bystanders.

One of the wounded was said to be in serious condition and five others sustained moderate injuries. Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the attack and the suicide bomber was identified as 22-year-old Sami Abdel Hafiz Antar from Nablus. Islamic Jihad has been behind the past six suicide bombings in Israel over the past year, and is the only faction to boycott next Wednesday's Palestinian Authority parliamentary elections. [...]

The attack occurred at close to 4 PM after Hafiz Antar entered the Rosh Ha'ir Shwarma stand on Rehov Salema 2 in the southern Tel Aviv neighborhood of Neveh Sha'anan offering clients there to buy razor blades. "He came in, tried to sell razor blades and then went to the back of the shop where he blew himself up," the shop's owner Arieh Sharon said. In January 2003, 23 people were killed and some 120 were wounded in a double suicide bombing around the corner from Thursday's attack.

Police said the explosion went off in the restaurant's bathroom, possibly prematurely as the bomber tried to prepare the explosive device. In addition, police said, the combination of a relatively small explosive device and the fact that the bomber chose a closed-in shop as his target, limited the damage and the number of wounded.

Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other Islamic fanatical groups wish to destroy Israel and murder all Israeli jewish men, women and children.

Russian spammers hijack one our email addresses - we receive thousands of bounced messages (09.03.2008)


In the last few minutes we are receiving thousands of bounced messages because someone is sending spam in our name.  Here's an example of how we've received dozens of such bounced messages in one minute at 5:45 PM:


Years ago we made sure spammers could not send spam using our email servers (we use SMTP-AUTH and pop-before-send) - so we know we are not sending the spam.  In this case, Russian spammers are using one of our email addresses as the "From" email address.  Some servers are then rejecting the spam, either because the email was sent to an account that is no longer valid, or it's a vacation response, etc...

We were going to try to report the Russian spammers on Spamcop.net, but we found out we can only report spam sent to us - in this case, the spam is sent to a server, which then bounces a message back to us.  Here are some relevant threads:


This is really unfortunate - there's nothing we can do.  Either we cancel this email address (which we'll probably do) or we ride out the wave of bounced messages.  I copy below more information and the text in Russian of one of the spam messages sent in our name.

Islamic leader of Palestinian Hamas calls for "Suicide Army" (01.10.2003)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Middle East Media Research Institute (www.memri.org) translates articles from the Arab Muslim world. In its latest article, Memri.org has translated an article from the spokesman of Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic terrorist group responsible for the deliberate murder of hundreds of women and children:

An article titled "Iraq Will Triumph, by Allah's Will" by Hamas spokesman Dr. Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi, was posted on the Hamas movement's website.[1] In the article, Al-Rantisi called on Iraq to establish a suicide army that would accept all Jihad warriors, so as to halt the impending attack on the country. The following are excerpts from the article: [...]

"I still maintain that in spite of the tremendous [military] Crusader buildup in the Gulf, the war on Iraq is not the most likely scenario, and that in the shadow of the venom of the blind Crusader hatred disseminated by Bush, all options are [still] open. But if war is at the gates, is the triumph of this Crusader oppressing aggression certain? I don't think so. I think that the West's arrogance will lead it to its sure end if it is determined to act with aggression and terror against the Islamic nation, and that its first defeat will be in Iraq." [...]

"Another quality of strength is that the Iraqis will have an army of martyrs. The enemies of Allah and the enemies of this people are cowards. They crave life, while the Muslims crave martyrdom. The martyrdom operations that shock can ensure that horror is sowed in the [enemies'] hearts, and horror is one of the causes of defeat. There is no other way than to establish thousands of squads of martyrs, in a secret apparatus, who, from now, have at their disposal the capability, as well as thousands of sophisticated explosive belts, with powerful explosive [capacity] to cause great damage."

"In order to defend the homeland from the terrorist Crusader attack, there is a need for people who yearn for Paradise, and the shortest way to Paradise is death for [the sake of] Allah. Some of us should see the joyful and satisfied faces of the mothers in Iraq when they part from the fruit of their loins, who go off to the realms of honor, the realms of martyrdom. This is so that the enemy of the nation knows that safeguarding honor and the homeland is dearer than life, and that our mothers in Iraq, like our mothers in Palestine, [are willing] to sacrifice the fruit of their loins but not their honor."

Germany, 1935, racist laws instituted against Jews (09.15.2002)

Jewish HistoryThe Jerusalem Post's feature "This day in history" reports that on September 15, 1933, Germany instituted racist laws against Jews and non-Aryans:

1935: In the Nuremberg Laws, Dr. Achin Gercke instituted a division between Aryans and non-Aryans. Jews (defined as anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent) were deprived of citizenship.

The Nazis issued instructional charts to help
distinguish Jews from Mischlinge
(Germans of mixed race) and Aryans

The Nuremberg laws also made it forbidden for Jews to marry or have sexual relations with Aryans or to employ young Aryan women as household help. (An Aryan being a person with blond hair and blue eyes of Germanic heritage.)

For those anti-Zionists out there that keep sending me hate mail, read this: never will we give up the State of Israel, the only country that would fight for my rights as a Jew; never will we be left alone and without defense if some crazy German or Arab Nazy decides he wishes to exterminate us. Long live the State of Israel!

I copy below an article that gives more details on the Nuremberg laws.
