Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber kills 19 unarmed Israeli civilians in Jerusalem bombing (06.18.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismHa'aretz (www.haaretzdaily.com) reports that a Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber has murdered 19 unarmed Israeli civilians when he blew himself up on a bus full of passengers.

The remains of the Jerusalem bus where
19 unarmed Israeli civilians were murdered

Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack in an official statement broadcast on the militant movement's television station. It said that the bomber was Muhammad Haza el-Rol, a 22-year-old student at al-Najah University in the West Bank city of Nablus, and that he came from the Jenin area.

He had apparently disappeared about three days ago. His father told Reuters from his home in the al-Fara refugee camp, near Nablus, that he was "very happy" to hear that his son was the bomber.

Military force is the only way to stop the butcher of Baghdad from acquiring nuclear weapons (01.25.2003)

OpinionThe leftist Israeli daily Ha'aretz (www.haaretzdaily.com) has an interview with former UN biological arms chief Richard O. Spertzel:

People who think that the UN inspectors will find biological or chemical or even nuclear weapons in Iraq in such a short period of time have unrealistic excpectations, says Richard O. Spertzel, who served as head of the biological weapons inspection team for the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq (UNSCOM) from 1994-98.

"It will take months and even years to find the `smoking gun' that people are talking about," he says. "We have to remember who we are dealing with. Saddam Hussein is a very sophisticated person. Whoever thinks that the inspectors will go to Iraq and find his secrets in a few weeks doesn't understand who we are dealing with."

Spertzel is following the work of the current team of inspectors in Iraq, and isn't impressed with their work or with their achievements. "The inspectors work mostly in sites that were visited by other inspectors until the inspection work was stopped in 1998. They don't visit almost any new sites. The visit to one of Saddam's palaces was only symbolic. Saddam is too smart. He is not going to hide his toys in the same place twice." [...]

Are we sure that Saddam really has biological and chemical weapons?

"Without a doubt. And this is a real threat. There is a fear that Iraq, with the help of terror organizations, will try to spread biological and chemical weapons. By the way, I am still not convinced that Iraq isn't behind the anthrax letters [that have been sent to American legislators and journalists]. The quality of the material that was in the letters is very high ... and I believe that Iraq did [it]. In any case, there is a big risk to many countries, including the U.S. and Israel, from smallpox and anthrax. This is the biggest risk."

In 1991 during the Gulf War, I was a college student at the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology (similar to America's MIT). Israel never attacked Iraq, yet Saddam Hussein fired dozens of missiles at Israeli cities. Israel never retaliated, but the missiles (Scuds) kept coming. Kids and the elderly had to wear gas masks every night while the butcher of Baghdad aimed and fired his weapons at women, children and babies.

I certainly don't want this Iraqi murderer to acquire nulear weapons. Faster, please.

England, 1278, 269 Jews are hanged; England, 1290, 16,000 Jews are expelled (11.16.2002)

Jewish HistoryThe Jerusalem Post's feature "This day in history" reports on November 17, 1278, when 269 Jews are hanged in England on the order of King Edward I:

1278: Edward I of England arrests 680 Jews for alleged coin clipping and counterfeiting, and puts them on trial. Many Christians are charged with a similar crime. But the judges are given prior instructions that bias them against the Jewish suspects. Some 269 Jews are eventually hanged. Edward receives 16,500 pounds from the property of the executed Jews as well as the fines of those charged -- a some consisting of 10 percent of the national income even though Jews only comprised one percent of the population.

Eventually this racist King also expelled 16,000 Jews from England in 1290. I copy below an article with more info.

Islamic religious fanatics that burn embassies are hypocritical bastards (02.06.2006)

OpinionThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has a great article on why the hundreds of thousands of Islamic religious fanatics that are burning European embassies acroos Muslim countries are also hypocritical bastards:

Hundreds of thousands of Islamic religious fanatics
that burn European embassies becase of a cartoon
similar to the one above are hypocritical bastards

There is a strong case for saying that the Danish cartoons of Muhammad, which have caused so much uproar, are fair comment. Certainly those who haven't seen them can rest assured that they are relatively tame in comparison with many cartoons on other subjects which regularly appear in the European press. Even so, non-Muslims might have more sympathy with Muslims who find them offensive if it weren't for the astonishing double standards and hypocrisy of the Muslim world when it comes to accepting and applauding truly vicious slanders against Jews and, to a lesser extent, Christians.

The arguments from Muslims - though not the fanatical, violent manner of many of their protests - would no doubt be taken more seriously if they had also objected to the depiction on Syrian television of rabbis as cannibals. Or if, last Saturday, Britain's Muslim Weekly had not published a caricature of a hooked-nosed Ehud Olmert.

Or if, last Friday, Valley of the Wolves, the most expensive movie ever made in Turkey, had not opened to great local acclaim. In the film American soldiers in Iraq crash a wedding and pump a little boy full of lead in front of his mother. They kill dozens of innocent people with random machine-gunfire, shoot the groom in the head and drag those left alive to prison, where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs and sells them to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv.

Or if a Belgian and Dutch Muslim group hadn't, last week, posted on its Web site pictures of Anne Frank in bed with Hitler. Or if the mere display of a cross or a Star of David in Saudi Arabia wasn't illegal.

I copy the rest of the article below - read it all: whenever someone in your home town agrees that these ignorant and violent Islamic fanatical religious bastards have the right to burn and kill you'll have some good counter arguments.

Alan Keyes letter of support to the people of Israel (08.14.2002)

OpinionIsrael Insider (www.israelinsider.com) has reprinted a letter from Alan Keyes to Mesora. Title "With the brave people of Israel", the letter touches on some excellent points and made me shiver.

I write to express my solidarity with the people of Israel in this difficult time, and to assure you of what I know you cannot doubt, that millions of Americans stand with Israel as well. We will remember the truth of Israel's honorable record, insist that others treat Israel in light of that truth, and not succumb to the cowardly passions of the moment.

When the European Union asserts moral authority to coerce Israel into a shameful surrender of its just claims, we will remember that many Europeans sat on their hands and did nothing while millions of Jews were slaughtered in the era that gave birth to the state of Israel. [...]

We will remember that Israel acquired the Sinai, West Bank and Gaza not in a war of conquest, but in a desperate and just defensive war for survival.

We will remind the "international community" that territory acquired in a defensive war of survival can, according to universal understanding, international law, and common sense, be retained until a negotiated peace is reached. And we will proclaim the truth that the Israeli people have again and again shown their willingness to put those territories on the table in the hope of achieving just such a negotiated settlement for just peace.

Alan Keyes is a former Republican candidate for U.S. President and a former host of "Making Sense" on MSNBC - AlanKeyes@msnbc.com

Glykeria, Greek superstar, supports the killing of unarmed civilians, including kids and babies (06.28.2002)

OpinionIn my previous post ("13 Palestinian terrorists enjoy paid vacation in European countries") we learned that Palestinian killers from the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas and the Al-Aksa brigades (Arafat's terrorist group) are enjoying a paid vacation in different European countries.

I was very surprised to see that two of them, Mohammed Muhannah(22) and Mamdouh Al Wardian(23), a known Hamas member, were treated as "guests of honor" in a concert given by Glykeria, a Greek singer.

Hamas is a Palestinian terrorist organization whose goal is to destroy the State of Israel and replace it with an Islamic Palestinian State. It is responsible for dozens of terrorist attacks against unarmed civilians, including kids and babies.

I decided to tell Glykeria what I thought of her support of such barbaric acts and wrote her a message.

To contact Glykeria yourself, click here.

Arafat wishes to die murdering women and children (becoming a "martyr") (12.09.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Middle East Media Reasearch Institute (www.memri.org), has translated an interview given by Arafat, the Palestinian "leader", on October 10, 2002:

Hamad: "It is known that the Israeli army planned to expel you from the Palestinian territories, to a remote area."

Arafat: "To a remote area! That is, to the desert! They are most welcome. 'O Mountain! the wind cannot shake you.' Have you forgotten my motto? They will not take me captive or prisoner, or expel [me], but as a martyr, martyr, martyr. 'O Allah, give me martyrdom.' [The Prophet Muhammad said:] 'There still exists a group in my nation that preserves its religion, vanquishes its enemy, and is not harmed by any one who attack it, and its people are the victors, due to Allah's strength.' It was said [to the Prophet Muhammad], 'O Messenger of Allah, where are they and who are [these people]?' The Prophet answered: 'They are in Jerusalem and its surroundings, and they are at the forefront until Judgment Day.'" [...]

"Martyr" is the term used by the Palestinians to describe the homicide/suicide bombers responsible for the deliberate murder of hundreds of Israeli women and children - for the full list of genocide bombings click here.

Hamad: "Sari Nusseibah, in charge of the Jerusalem portfolio, signed a document with Israeli elements from the Left which includes abolishing the Palestinian refugees' right of return to their homes from which they were expelled."

Arafat: "No one can abolish the right of return. There is Resolution 194. I told them this officially in the [framework of] the agreements signed between them and us, and also to Sharon and Netanyahu at Wye River."

The "Right of Return" would allow Palestinians that left the State of Israel in 1948 to "return" to their original villages. Except that in the meantime, their villages have turned into Israeli cities, and the 600,000 Palestinians that left have turned into about 8 million. If Israelis accepted this "Right of Return", there wouldn't be a majority of Jews in the State of Israel anymore. It is another way to destroy Israel, but no one is buying into it, and the overwhelming majority of Israelis will never accept it. For more information on how Israel came about, check out the History page.

Hamad: "The Israeli army commanders boasted that they defeated the Palestinians and added that they want the Palestinians to acknowledge [this] defeat."

Arafat: "They said after the battle of Uhud[5] that the Prophet was defeated. And what happened? The Al-Hudaybiyya agreement,[6] about which Omar Ibn Al-Khattab said [was] a humiliating agreement."

Note: The 628 Al-Hudaybiyya agreement, between the Prophet and the Meccan tribe of Quraish, was signed for a period of 10 years, which became, in Islamic tradition, the time limit for any agreement with non-Muslims. The Al-Hudaybiyya agreement was broken after 18 months. Muhammad's army then conquered Mecca. In other words: Arafat is clearly saying let's make an agreement now, we can always break it and destroy Israel later.

I still have some friends in the San Francisco Bay Area that refuse to admit that Arafat and the Palestinian Authority support and organize terrorism. If anyone has any idea on how to approach and convince them (without just giving them facts such as this article), please let me know at dmelle@factsofisrael.com or just leave a comment to this article.

France, January 2003: Rabbi stabbed in Paris synagogue (01.03.2003)

Anti-SemitismAlthough French politicians will deny it, anti-Semitism seems to be ubiquitous in France:

A rabbi was stabbed Friday night in a Paris synagogue by an unknown assailant who than fled, Israel Radio reported.

According to the radio the assailant stabbed Rabbi Gabriel Farhi, 34, in the stomach, shouting "Allah Wakbar we will kill you" before running away. Farhi said the assailant rode a motorcycle and had been wearing a helmet.

Farhi, who was lightly wounded, was treated at a hospital where they removed the knife, before being released. Farhi told the radio that this was not the first time he or his family had been threatened and that very morning he had received a threat.

Paris police are investigating the incident. The same synagogue was gutted by fire six months ago, but French police closed the investigation, ruling that the blaze was caused by an electrical fault.

The community is known for its activities to encourage coexistence between the faiths, in particular with France's Muslim community.

Palestinian terrorists shoot Israeli civilian point-blank in the head (08.03.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian terrorists have murdered an Israeli who was working near the town of Tulkarm. The Israeli was bound and shot in the head from point-blank range simply because he was a Jew.

Shani Ladani, 27, of Moshav Olesh in the northern Sharon, was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while he was working near Moshav Nitzanei Oz, west of Tulkarm, Thursday morning. He was buried at Olesh Thursday night.

Ladani was bound hand and foot and shot point-blank in the head in what OC Judea and Samaria Brig.-Gen. Gershon Yitzhak described as a "lynching." [...]

"We understand that they came from Tulkarm, taking advantage of the lifting of the curfew on the city in the morning. They reached the industrial area, did what they did, and then fled into Tulkarm. "

"I can say that all our desire recently to make life easier for the Palestinian populace and enable a return to normal life, does not go hand-in-hand with the ambition and desire of terrorist elements, who are doing everything possible to prevent their own people from resuming a regular routine."

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.

An Antisemitic Myth in the Arab Press: The September 11 Attacks Were Perpetrated by the Jews (06.25.2002)

Anti-SemitismThe Middle East Media Research Institute (www.memri.org) has published translations from the Arab press where Jews are blamed for the barbaric attacks on the United States on 9/11/2001.

Apparently this theory is widely accepted in the Arab and Muslim world and is backed by Foreign Ministers and Ambassadors. The Arab world cannot accept the fact that among their midst we find monsters capable of organizing and executing the 9/11 attrocities and the homicide bombing attacks against civilians, including babies and kids.

Since September 11, the Arab media have claimed that Jews perpetrated the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. Promoting this new myth are high-ranking public officials and columnists in the government and non-government press in Arab countries.

In the articles reviewed in this report, the conclusions point directly at the Jews. These conclusions are supported by various forms of evidence, further buttressed by timeworn, long-"substantiated" antisemitic myths. Thus, the papers posit guilt, substantiate their accusations, convict, and, in one case, hand down a sentence – annihilation "as Hitler did."

Syrian foreign minister Mustafa Tlass, author of The Matza of Zion, a book that depicts the infamous Damascus blood libel of 1840 as an actual event, claimed during a meeting in Damascus with a delegation from the British Royal College of Defense Studies that the Mossad planned the ramming of two hijacked airliners into the WTC towers as part of a Jewish conspiracy.

Former Egyptian ambassador to Afghanistan Ahmad Al-'Amrawi told the Palestinian Islamic Jihad mouthpiece Al-Istiqlal that the Zionist movement and American intelligence organizations planned the attacks. He said the aim was both to extricate Israel from its current crisis and to give the U.S. an opening to take over the oil reserves in the Caspian Sea, thus gaining full control of the world's main oil resources.

French Synagogue burns; French officials say it's a "Spontaneous Combustion" (02.21.2003)

Anti-SemitismThe International Herald Tribune (www.iht.com) reports that a synagogue mysteriously started to burn in France:

Fire heavily damages a suburban synagogue

(PARIS) A fire broke out at a synagogue outside Paris early Sunday, causing heavy damage to the building, firefighters said.

Nine people living in apartments above the synagogue in Saint-Mande, east of Paris, were treated for smoke inhalation, firefighters said. The cause of the blaze was not immediately known.

The authorities increased security at Jewish religious sites last year after a wave of attacks at synagogues, Jewish schools and cemeteries.

Currently, the official take of the French government is that there is no hostility and violence towards Jews in France. It's amazing, these French synagogues just magically and spontaneously combust.

Thanks to "Merde in France" for the news item. I copy below an article describing the same magical spontaneous combustion (in French) from Yahoo France.

Muslim mass murderers kill 45 and injure hundreds in India (08.25.2003)

Palestinian TerrorismFox News (www.foxnews.com) Islamic mass murderers have murdered 46 people in India and injured hundreds in two car explosions in Bombay:

A pair of car bombs ripped through lunchtime crowds in India's financial capital, Bombay, on Monday, killing 46 people and wreaking havoc at a crowded jewelry market and a popular historic landmark. More than 150 people were wounded.

Police Commissioner Ranjit Sharma blamed India's longtime rival, Pakistan, saying suspicion in the blast fell on Islamic militant groups "let loose by the enemy country."

The bombs were hidden in the trunks of two taxis and exploded within five minutes of each other, police said. Several people were being interrogated, including one taxi driver. [...]

Sharma, the police commissioner, specifically mentioned the Students Islamic Movement of India, or SIMI, a militant Muslim students' group outlawed in 2001, and Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, one of more than a dozen Islamic rebel groups fighting Indian security forces in Kashmir since 1989, seeking independence for the Himalayan province or its merger with Muslim-dominated Pakistan.

I feel for the victims and their familes in India - with all of the terrorist attacks executed by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas who deliberately murder Israeli babies, I know the anguish and frustration.

Replace "India" with "Israel", and "Pakistan" with "Palestinian Authority" and you'll see the Muslim terrorist bastards and their supporters are playing the same game: Muslim mass murderers kill hundreds while Muslim governments that are supposed to enforce the law let them do whatever they want without any consequences

In Israel nobody is buying this nonsense anymore.

Racist Bastards deface 50 posters of Jewish politician (08.07.2004)

Anti-SemitismCBS (www.cbs.com) reports that racist bastards have defaced 50 posters of a Jewish politician in San Francisco, California:

One of the posters of Heller, a Jewish politician,
defaced by a Nazi swastika in San Francisco, California

Hate Crime Against SF Supe Candidate, Link
Swastikas defaced dozens of campaign posters in San Francisco's Richmond district.

The anti-Semitic symbols appeared on at least 50 posters for David Heller, who is Jewish and running for the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco. The beauty shop owner lost all of his relatives on his father's side to the Nazis.

Mr. Heller said, "I couldn't believe it. I couldn't handle it. I just broke down. I mean I cried. All day, I couldn't handle it. I couldn't believe it."

Heller used the colors of the Israeli flag for his posters. The Anti-Defamation League says references to Israel can set off anti-Semitic attacks.

On Wednesday, Heller's opponents in the supervisor’s race stood hand-in-hand with him as a show of solidarity.

Europen Union finances Palestinian terrorism (07.11.2002)

Palestinian TerrorismThe German magazine Die Zeit (www.zeit.de) has published an article that shows how the European Union is financing Palestinian terrorism.

The article was translated by Stefan Sharkansky (Shark Blog) and it contains a lot of information on how European money is used to kill unarmed Israeli civilians, including kids. Among other things it covers:

1) How European money is used to print Palestinian schoolbooks that glorify genocide bombers and deny the existence of the State of Israel.

Barely after the new books appeared, there came a hailstorm of criticism from western experts. [...] There are calls for religious tolerance, but only between Muslims and Christians. Jews appear only in an historical context. Their connection to the Holy Land is stuck in antiquity. The Jewish resettlement of Palestine is called "infiltration". There is no direct appeal to terrorism, but certainly "Palestine's Martyrs" are glorified, including "The Engineer Ayash", who dispatched suicide bombers in the 1990s and killed dozens of Israelis. The State of Israel does not exist. Its name appears on no map, terms such as "green line", "the interior of the country" or the "1948 land" are used repeatedly. Cities founded by Israel, such as Tel-Aviv, are never mentioned. The name of the State of Palestine and the emblem of Arafat's Palestinian Authority are everywhere, such as on the book covers. This state would seem to stretch from Jordan to the Mediterranean.

2) How European money is used by Arafat to fund his Al-Aksa brigades (responsible for dozens of genocide bombings, see the Palestine page). Arafat makes no distinction between the Palestinian Authority and his Fatah group, an umbrella group of terrorist organizations (that includes the Al-Aksa brigades).

How Arafat paid the friendly price of 10 million dollars for the Karine-A cargo is one of the mysteries of this affair. Whoever finds it reassuring should do the math. At the time of the weapons deal, Europe paid at least 10% of Yassir Arafat's day-to-day budget and 50% of all aid payments. Next to the Europeans, Arafat had only two other revenue sources -- substantial aid from the Arab states, and insignificant tax receipts. How great are the odds that Arafat has not soiled Europe's reputation?

3) How in 2/2001 Arafat and his thugs from the PA made a clear decision to kill unarmed Israeli civilians to force Israel to respond. Their logic was that once Israel responded, an international force, including Europeans, would impose a solution and create a Palestinian state. Documents found by Israel prove this without a doubt.
