The Middle East problem (July 19, 2014)

Dennis Prager explains "The Middle East problem":

Mr. Prager is right on: the solution may be hard, but the problem is simple: one side wants the other side dead.

In Israel the warning time for hostile incoming aircraft is two minutes (12.05.2002)

OpinionTownHall.com has a good article on Israel's security concerns:

The warning time here in Israel is two minutes. The planes will not likely be Jordanian, but rather from states beyond Jordan. On the other hand, they could be planes hijacked in Jordan. In any event, the Israelis have no margin for error.

Israel has been on terror alert for much of its history, going back to 1948. This time around, the alert has lasted two years. At first, the Israelis were on the alert for Palestinian killers who murdered civilians from ambush. Now there are the suicide bombers who blow themselves up in crowded public places. The current casualty list numbers close to 700 Israelis.

Students of world politics might well wonder what would follow if the Islamofascists fly a helicopter into Tel Aviv's Azrieli Center. The skies of Tel Aviv are as abundant with helicopters as any other prosperous modern city. How would the Israelis respond? There are other vulnerable buildings in Israel. Nearby the resplendent seaside city of Herzlia, where I am staying, there is an oil facility that if sabotaged could lead to the deaths of 20,000 local residents. Already one truckload of explosives meant for the installation failed to reach its target. What would the Israelis' response be if they suffered that kind of loss in the current struggle? [...]

Israel is in a very difficult bind. Its citizens face the stress of suicide bombers within its borders and large armies beyond. Yet the people's spirits are unbowed. Asked recently if he feared Israel that Israel could be facing another defeat similar to the defeat the ancient Jews suffered at the hands of the Romans at Masada in A.D. 73, Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quipped: "Not this time. Now the Romans are on our side." Perhaps that explains the familiar tune I heard an Israeli girl whistling when I checked into my hotel the other night. It was the American national anthem, which does have an agreeably jaunty tempo.

Camp for Israeli families of victims of Palestinian terrorism (10.30.2002)

VictimsA few weeks ago, I posted a video that showed on how some Israeli children attended a summer camp for those who have lost a brother, sister, or parent murdered by a Palestinian terrorist.

The Christian Science Monitor (www.christiansciencemonitor.com) follows up with a good article on how the victims are coping with their losses:

They were neighbors. They were counselors in the same youth group. They even shared the same initials. And they were heading to a meeting for their volunteer work when they stopped off to get a slice of pizza in downtown Jerusalem. There, a year ago Aug. 9, a Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up in a Sbarro restaurant, killing both of them and 13 others. [...]

We're left with a very big hole in our lives," says Arnold Roth, who was the father of seven until 15-year-old Malki – a pillar of a middle child and a classical flautist – was killed 14 months ago.

"In my family, no one wants to bring it up because it's liable to trigger responses that we don't want to deal with," he says as his intense, hazel-eyed daughter, Pesi, 10, slips into the chair next to him and wraps small fingers around his hand. "The loneliness of it is offset by talking to other families, because what we're hearing is [that] the same issues keep coming up again and again." [...]

Miriam Sarah [15], who sustained serious injuries in the Sbarro bombing that killed her sister Yochevet, dismisses her mother's worrying as pointless. "I just tell her that if I'm going out anyway, what good will fear do? It can happen anywhere."

BBC reporters continue to support Palestinian terrorism (08.13.2002)

OpinionThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has posted more examples on how the English BBC reporters "are full-throated partisans in covering the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, acting as outright advocates of the Palestinian cause instead of neutral purveyers of information".

One striking gauge of the bias is the discrepancy in treatment of Palestinian versus Israeli spokesmen by BBC interviewers. Deep indulgence is routinely afforded Palestinian officials, while Israelis who defend the actions of their government are often verbally pounded in hostile, aggressive interviews. [...]

In particular, no reference was made to Shaath's recent baseless and incendiary charges that Israel had massacred 500 Palestinians in Jenin and had engaged in summary executions and the removal of corpses in refrigerated trucks. Coincidentally, only days before the BBC broadcast, the United Nations had issued a report definitively refuting Palestinian allegations that Israel committed a "massacre" in its April incursion into Jenin to uproot terror bases. [...]

In reply to Meir's statement that Israel treats "human life in a different way than the Palestinians are doing," an indignant Brodie demanded: "I'm sorry, what did you say? You say that you treat human life in a different way to the Palestinians?" Meir stood his ground answering: "Absolutely, absolutely. We don't send suicide bombers to put nails in the heads of teenagers This is what the Palestinians are doing." Unmoved, Brodie then assailed Israeli military efforts as counterproductive, declaring "there is no military solution."

I think the fact that reporters that work for the BBC tend to be European leftists makes them full supporters of the Palestinian cause. They ignore the historical context, the refusal of peace by Arafat and his thugs, the thousands of terrorist attacks and dozens of suicide bombers that have deliberately killed hundreds of unarmed Israeli civilians and continue in their blind hate of Israel. It also makes sense that such a message would be carried by the leftist NPR in the US (see "The deliberate killing of unarmed civilians is terrorism").

Thank God Europe is not a super power anymore and is irrelevant in the outcome of the Israeli/Arab wars.

Arab Emirate of Dubai Police arrest raped woman, she faces "adultery charges" (01.03.2003)

NewsThe Washington Times (www.washtimes.com) reports that the police in the Arab Emirate of Dubai has arrested a woman who was raped:

A businesswoman who accused three men of gang rape has been arrested in the Arab emirate of Dubai and faces trial on charges of adultery.

Touria Tiouli, 39, from Limoges, France, has had her passport confiscated and cannot leave Dubai after being charged under the emirate's Shariah law, according to her statement released by her friends back home.

The Shariah [Islamic] law declares any sexual relationship outside marriage to be illegal.

Mrs. Tiouli was on a business trip last October when, she says, she was raped by three men who offered her a lift home from a nightclub. She reported the attack immediately to the Dubai police, who after investigating her claim arrested her rather than those she accused.

One of the men admitted to having "consensual sex" with Mrs. Tiouli, which made her, in the eyes of Dubai's judiciary, guilty of both adultery and making a false rape accusation. She could face up to 18 months in prison. None of the men has been charged. [...]

In the statement released yesterday, Mrs. Tiouli said that when she reported her rape to the police, "I was crying and I saw quickly that my story did not carry any weight with them." Mrs. Tiouli, who is divorced, was born in Morocco, but moved to France as a child and is a French citizen. [...]

Shariah law is applied with varying severity in many Muslim countries. In Nigeria, adultery is punishable by stoning to death, while in Dubai, a prison sentence is usual.

This reminds me of the woman who was raped in Nigeria and became pregnant: the Nigerian Islamic courts sentenced her to death by stoning (click here for the original story and here for a follow-up).

Where are the cries from the European left on human rights abuses in Arab countries that apply Islamic law? I guess they are too busy hating Jews criticizing Israel to worry about anything else.

So early in 2003 and I'm already disgusted. I copy the full article below.

Response to hate message (05.07.2002)

AnnouncementI received the following message today:

"This site and its sceensaver do nothing but misrepresent the REAL FACTS. This site is a horrible, disgusting site that is breeding lies and hatred throughout all those who see it."

The sender did not give his real email address or name - I only see David Jones (abc@abc.com) from Los Angeles. Since I can't answer him/her directly, I'll do it publicly:

What exactly breeds lies and hatred in FactsOfIsrael.com? Is the history page not to your liking? Everything listed in the history page is made of facts - but if you disagree please let me know (please back up your claims with references to books or sites).

The same is true of the Maps, Stats, Palestine and Democracy pages - all facts. The only section that is not made of facts is the main page - it is a collection of news, links and articles. Lately I have been posting articles that exposed Muslim Fundamentalists, French Anti-Semitism, the European left, bias in the British Media, proof that Arafat continues to organize and approve terrorist attacks, etc....

Is this what you refer to as "breeding lies and hate"? Mr. Jones, the above groups are the ones breeding lies and hatred, and you are probably part of one or two of them. I will continue to present the facts and will post any news related to the real hate: the one that wishes for the destruction of the State of Israel and/or of the Jewish People - it is my way of fighting back.

Palestinian homicide bomber murders one Israeli and injures three (04.17.2004)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian homicide bomber from the terrorist group Hamas has murdered one Israeli and wounded three:

Border Police Cpl. Kfir Ohayon, 20, of Eilat was killed and two other border policemen and a civilian security guard were wounded when a Palestinian worker wearing a belt of explosives blew himself up at the Erez industrial zone Saturday afternoon.

The bomber had entered the complex despite undergoing security checks that were recently beefed up following a previous bombing. It was the fourth terrorist attack at the site since the beginning of the year.

Border policeman Arieh Mahati, 20, was seriously wounded and Border Police officer Yogev Tassah and the security guard were lightly wounded in the explosion. Ohayon was flown together with Mahati by helicopter to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, the others were taken to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

The suicide bomber had worked at Erez for two years and had all the necessary permits. He was identified as Fadi al-Amoudi, 22, of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip and was a member of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades.

While Hamas and Fatah jointly claimed responsibility for the attack, Israeli officers said Hamas had recruited Amoudi, realizing they could take advantage of his workplace to launch an attack.

Muslim group puts fifteen prominent Danish Jews on hit list (08.19.2002)

Anti-SemitismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Muslim group has put 15 prominent Danish Jews on a hit list.

The people on the list reportedly include Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Melchior's father, Binyamin, a rabbi in the community, and the father of Ron Pundak, one of the architects of the Oslo Accords. [...]

The Muslim group believed to be behind the list is "Hizb Ut Tahrir", whose aim is to create worldwide Islamic rule.

Every time I post an article on such anti-Semitic garbage I get emails that tell me that "Arabs are also Semitics" or "This is not anti-Semitism since the violence is politically motivated". Before you send such a message, here's the definition of anti-Semitism from Dictionary.com:

an·ti-Sem·i·tism (nt-sm-tzm, nt-) n.
1. Hostility toward or prejudice against Jews or Judaism.
2. Discrimination against Jews.

Source: The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition.

This group targets a group of people simply because they are Jews - they are anti-Semitic Muslims stuck in the Middle Ages.

European Union funds Yasser Arafat and other Palestinian terrorists (08.09.2004)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Telegraph (www.telegraph.co.uk) reports on a new commission created by the European Union to investigate how funds were transferred from the EU to the Palestinian Authority, and then to the mass murdering bastdards from Yasser Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades:

The European Union is planning to send investigators to Israel to interview Palestinians held in Israeli prisons over suspicions that the Palestinian Authority may have diverted EU donations to fund terrorist operations. [...]

There had been claims that Yasser Arafat, the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, and senior officials transferred EU funds to the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, the military wing of Mr Arafat's Fatah faction. [...]

Olaf officials visited Israel at the beginning of the year and reviewed documents and testimony presented by the Israeli defence forces and Shin Bet security service relating to the issue.

Some of the documents were seized during an army raid on Mr Arafat's compound in Ramallah in April 2002. Investigators decided that the material was authentic and now want to substantiate the allegations from the testimony of Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades members held in Israel. [...]

A BBC documentary broadcast last year claimed that the Palestinian Authority was paying members of the brigades, which have carried out suicide attacks on Israelis, up to £27,500 a month.

Most Palestinians make about $50 a month, so £27,500 (over $30,000 US dollars) per month is a small fortunate for these mass murdering scum.

Don't expect news on how the European Union and Yasser Arafat directly finance Islamic terrorists to reach your local news outlet - it would greatly offend the European leftists who do not wish to look at reality but prefer to continue to support the mass murdering Palestinians.

Brave Palestinian rejects Islamic terrorism and Jihad (holy war) (02.07.2004)

OpinionIsrael National News (www.israelnn.com) has published the story of Wallid Shoebat, a Palestinian who has rejected violence, racism and terrorism:

Wallid Shoebat, a brave Palestinian who
rejects Islamic Terrorism and Jihad

In stark contrast to the PLO [Palestinian Liberation Organization] songs he recited growing up, with words like, “Sharpen my bones into swords and make my flesh into Molotov cocktails,” Shoebat, now 44, sings a very different tune.

“The first thing we learned growing up was to hate Jews,” Wallid recalled. “I’ll never forgot the first song I learned in school, ‘Arabs our beloved and Jews our dogs.’ I used to wonder at that time who the Jews were, but repeated the words with the rest of the kids without any knowledge of the meaning.” [...]

It was not long before Wallid’s education led him to get involved in various terrorist activities. He routinely stirred up riots and lynch mobs, throwing firebombs and rocks at soldiers and pelting Jewish worshippers at the Western Wall. He even beat an Israeli soldier, with the intent to kill, but the soldier escaped at the last second. [...]

At age 18, after spending several months in Israeli prisons, Shoebat went to study in the United States becoming an activist in Chicago and fund-raising for the PLO. “Even living in America – a civilized society, if you will – I still had not changed my mind one bit about Israel and the Jews.”

Shoebat decided at that point to turn away from the path of terrorism and Jihad. “I woke up my wife and said ‘Maria – I think I was wrong to try to convert you to Islam.’” [...]

Determined to let his people know what he knows, he soon began speaking to Muslim groups – demanding that they confront what Islam either always was – or has become. When confronted with what has become somewhat of a mantra since September 11th – that “true Islam is a religion of peace,” Shoebat responds, “I grew up there – I was there at the mosques, the ummahs and the religious schools. I know what is still being taught today in the textbooks and by the religious leaders – so my challenge to those who claim Islam is not the religion of terror we see today, is what have you done to stand against it and say ‘this is wrong’?”

Unfortunately Mr. Shoebat has already felt the intolerance of his people: his family, including his father, consider him a traitor for exposing their racist hatred and Islamic terrorism. He also probably receives death threats on a regular basis and is a brave man for standing up to these murderous bastards.

I copy his full story below and a video of Mr. Shoebat where he explains why he rejected the hate of the "infidels" and Islamic terrorism in his own words.

Survivor of September 11 attacks tells his story (09.06.2002)

VictimsUSA Today (www.usatoday.com) has published an article that tells the story of Alan Mann, 35, who was inside an elevator in the World Trade Center on September 11, but managed to survive.

Alan Mann, 35, an executive vice president at Aon Corp., an insurance company, squeezed into an express elevator packed with 25 people evacuating the south tower. He was the last person in. The doors closed. The elevator descended normally for the first seconds of a ride to the ground floor that should have lasted 60 seconds. Then United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the south tower, tearing through the elevator machine room on the 81st floor. That cut most cables to the express elevators. Elevator No. 13 began a free fall from 900 feet above ground. [...]

Mann found himself trapped in a corner of the elevator, lying on top of someone. Debris and dust filled his mouth. Other passengers screamed and moaned. He heard other elevators crashing nearby. [...]

Mann helped rip off a piece of metal but cut his left hand badly. He stuck his head through a small hole near the elevator floor and tried to push himself through. He couldn't fit. He was 10 feet above the lobby floor but couldn't get out. [...]

The lobby was deserted. He walked through revolving doors and found four firefighters in the underground shopping mall. He brought them back to the elevator. "You need to help these people," he said. He fled the building and ended up in an ambulance.

Everybody else in the elevator died, including Friedlander and Giordano. Mann doesn't know what happened to the woman.

Palestinian genocide bombers kills dozens in Paris and London (06.29.2002)

OpinionWell, not yet. Ha'aretz (www.haaretz.co.il) has published a story that describes how terrorists could hit Paris or London, and what would be the European's reaction.

Reporters from Sky News, broadcasting direct from the streets of London, could barely find the words to express the depth of their shock and horror at this pointless mass murder of dozens of innocent civilians: "It's murder! Nothing but insane sadistic Nazi murder!" one reporter exclaimed, holding up with repulsion nails and screws with which the terrorists had packed the bomb in order to magnify the killing. "It wasn't a nightingale that sang in Berkeley Square yesterday," The Independent lamented the next day in a paraphrase of the old song, "it was the Devil himself.

The prime minister's wife, Cherie Blair, her hair messed and wearing a rumpled housecoat, was seen through the partially open door pounding on the chest of a bodyguard and screaming hysterically, "My children! Where are my children! Tell me they're all right! Do something! Anything!! Why doesn't someone wipe out these stinking murderers already!!"

- "I want to make it clear," the [French] ambassador continued. "My government and I deplore the cycle of violence and the harm done to civilians on both sides. But if I may be permitted: I personally feel compassion for those who saw fit to carry out the suicide bombings. How did Voltaire put it? `Although I ....'"

- "You can stuff Voltaire up your ass, frog!" the veteran BBC correspondent burst out and lunged at the ambassador's throat as the screen went dark to the sound of screams and gasps.

How to discern anti-Israeli bias in the media (09.06.2002)

NewsAish.com has a good article on how to discern when the media is biased against Israel.

We expect journalists to maintain independence and objectivity -- and certainly not pledge "cooperation" with one side of an armed struggle. But when a representative of Italian state television issued an apology in Arabic over the filming of a brutal lynching of two Israelis in Ramallah, and promised to cooperate more fully with the Palestinian Authority in the future, Western sensibilities were shaken.

Why is the media biased? It could be they are intimidated by Palestinian strongmen into covering only the "positive" side, while Israeli democracy permits more open coverage of the Israeli position. Or it could be that it's more exciting to root for the underdog. Or it could be that the world applies a double-standard of morality to Israel.

Whatever the reason, if truth is to prevail, we can't just "read" the newspaper. Be discerning and become part of the process. Otherwise, you're just a passive object of someone else's agenda. As Mark Twain once said, "If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed."

Conrad Black is CEO of Hollinger International, and publisher of The Spectator (London), The Jerusalem Post, and other publications. He writes:

"The British media habitually apply a double standard when judging the Israelis and Palestinians. Behind the spurious defence of merely seeking justice for the Palestinians, most of the relevant sections of the BBC, Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office are rabidly anti-Israel."

How can readers discern the truth between the lines? Listed here are common methods employed by the media -- intentionally or not -- to influence public opinion. By being aware of these methods, we can avoid becoming a pawn in the media war.

Arafat's Palestinian terrorists shoot Israeli in the head (03.19.2003)

Palestinian TerrorismI just heard on Israeli radio that Palestinian terrorists from Arafat's terrorist group "Al-Aksa brigades" have deliberately shot an Israeli in the head. The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports:

Palestinians shot and killed Israeli citizen Zion Boshirian, 50, a resident of the northern West Bank Jewish community of Mevo Dotan, Wednesday afternoon.

Palestinian gunmen ambushed Boshirian's car as he was driving, alone, on a road between the settlements of Mevo Dotan and Shaked, adjacent to the Palestinian town of Jenin. They shot him in the head. Boshirian, severely wounded, managed to shoot back at his assailants but fell unconscious and later succumbed to his wounds while being treated by paramedics on the site.

Mr. Boshirian's wife is pregnant and his son was to celebrate his Bar-Mitzvah next week.

Many Palestinians and leftist fascists support such barbaric murders, since killing Mr. Boshirian and other Israeli "settlers" is acceptable in their eyes. I say it isn't - for every men, woman or child murdered by Palestinian terrorists we should create more settlements and make their lives as hard as possible (click here for the article "Land for War: a solution to stop the Palestinian terrorist attacks on women and children" for more details).

If the Palestinians ever decide that peace is better than intolerance, hate and murder, we might think about giving them an independent State of Palestine (see the Palestine page for details) - in the meantime let's increase the budget for settlements by tenfold.

Some British Muslims join Islamic Jihad ("Holy War") and wish for the murder of millions (04.22.2004)

Palestinian TerrorismThe Evening Standard (www.thisislondon.co.uk) has published an article that shows how some English Muslims are completely brainwashed and have joined the fascist Muslim movement that has declared Jihad ("Holy War") against Western Democracies:

Four young British Muslims in their twenties - a social worker, an IT specialist, a security guard and a financial adviser - occupy a table at a fast-food chicken restaurant in Luton. Perched on their plastic chairs, wolfing down their dinner, they seem just ordinary young men. Yet out of their mouths pour heated words of revolution.

"As far as I'm concerned, when they bomb London, the bigger the better," says Abdul Haq, the social worker. "I know it's going to happen because Sheikh bin Laden said so. Like Bali, like Turkey, like Madrid - I pray for it, I look forward to the day." [...]

"I agree with you, brother," says Abu Yusuf, the earnest-looking financial adviser sitting opposite. "I would like to see the Mujahideen coming into London and killing thousands, whether with nuclear weapons or germ warfare. And if they need a safehouse, they can stay in mine - and if they need some fertiliser [for a bomb], I'll tell them where to get it." [...]

His friend, Abu Musa, the security guard, smiles radiantly. "It will be a day of joy for me," he adds, speaking with a slight lisp. [...]

[...] It was the events of 11 September that crystallised Sayful's worldview. "When I watched those planes go into the Twin Towers, I felt elated," he says. "That magnificent action split the world into two camps: you were either with Islam and al Qaeda, or with the enemy. I decided to quit my job and commit myself full-time to al-Muhajiroun." Now he does not consider himself British. "I am a Muslim living in Britain, and I give my allegiance only to Allah." [...]

As they call for the bill, Abu Malaahim flicks open his 3G mobile phone and, with a satisfied grin, displays the image, downloaded from the internet, of an American Humvee burning in Iraq.

Abu Yusuf says: "That's nothing. I downloaded the picture of the four burnt Americans hanging from the bridge." It's oneupmanship, al-Muhajiroun style.

It is clear that not all Muslims are fascist, racist and violent bastards. But it also clear that some are freaks who wish for the destructions of Israel, the United States and other Western Democracies, and would not hesitate in murdering millions.

I receive a lot of death threats and hate mail from such British Muslims and I find it outrageous that these brainwashed morons enjoy the rights of the very Democracies they wish to destroy.
