The topic: the Trump Administration’s The Deal of the Century as laid out in the White House preliminary framework entitled, “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People”.

 

For me there is no getting around the 181 page document’s declaration that a Palestinian State would have its capital city in an Eastern portion of Jerusalem. I have read advocates of the peace deal claim it will be parts of Jerusalem already dominated by Arabs. If that geographical Arab domination includes the Temple Mount those physical dimensions MUST BE rejected by Jews and Christians.

 

Jerusalem – 1948 Quarters and Divided 1949-67

 

BUT the part of the plan I am beginning to slowly inch toward maybe is the part that is driving Islamic terrorist leadership Arabs calling themselves Palestinians nuts is a significant swath of Jewish Settlement areas of Judea-Samaria (labelled the West Bank by conquering Jordanians in 1948) becoming a part of sovereign Israel which must be recognized for the plan to move forward.

 

The God Plan for Israel

 

On a personal level it is my belief for Israel is God’s plan of the Promised Land to the descendants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. That means Arabs who refuse accept God’s plan should leave to Arab lands that practice hateful and intolerant Islam.

 

BUT I live in America and really don’t have a vote.

 

Caroline Glick tackles the duplicity of the Israeli Left which she indicates might be taking cues from the American Dem Party. If accurate, God have mercy on Israel and its probably brainwashed Left-Wing voters.

Israeli sovereignty and the fate of the Trump plan

Trump-Kushner-Bibi

On Wednesday morning, NeverTrump propagandist Bill Kristol told his MSNBC audience that Democratic chances of victory over US President Donald Trump will rise if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is defeated in Israel’s elections on March 2.

 

Along the same lines, if Netanyahu fails to apply Israeli sovereignty to the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria before the election, not only will he almost certainly lose those elections, his defeat will bury Trump’s peace plan and harm Trump’s reelection chances.

 

To understand why this is the case it is first necessary to understand the nature of the Blue and White party and its relationship to Trump and his peace plan.

 

After Trump’s peace plan was published, Israelis discovered significant problems with the map attached to the plan. Among other things, the map places large sections of Highway 60, which crosses Judea and Samaria from south to north outside Israeli jurisdiction. If left uncorrected, the designation will endanger the security of tens of thousands of Israelis whose communities will be rendered isolated enclaves. Since ensuring Israel’s ability to defend itself and its citizens on a permanent basis is a major goal of the plan, this omission was obviously an oversight. Netanyahu announced this week that he has assembled a team to work on the map.

 

So long as the map is not adjusted, members of Likud and other parties in the right-religious bloc Netanyahu leads will be unable to vote in favor of the plan, despite their support for Trump and for the plan overall.

 

This then brings us to Benny Gantz and his party.

 

Just before Gantz traveled to Washington to meet with Trump at the White House last Monday, it came out that his top campaign strategists, Ronen Tzur and Joel Benenson had both separately published multiple posts on Twitter viciously attacking Trump. Both men compared him to Hitler, called him a Russian agent and a racist. In other words, both men parroted Democratic talking points against Trump. (After his posts were reported, Tzur claimed that he no longer believed the things he had written.)

 

Whereas Tzur – like every garden variety Israeli leftist politico – apparently follows the Democrats on everything related to American public affairs automatically, Benenson shapes Democratic positions. Benenson served as Barack Obama’s senior political strategist in the 2008 and 2012 elections and as Hillary Clinton’s senior political strategist in 2016.

 

In 2015, Wikileaks published Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta’s emails. Several email chains included internal campaign discussions in which Benenson participated. In two discussions, Benenson advised Clinton not to mention Israel in public events.

 

Now Benenson is directing Blue and White’s campaign, and there is little reason for surprise at the seamlessness of his move from Obama and Clinton to Gantz. The Israeli left has been intertwined with the Democratic Party.

In 2016 when Gantz was still a private citizen, he was strongly encouraged to enter the political fray by a public service company called Darcheinu, or “Our Way.”

 

Darcheinu is the successor to two organizations – V-15 and One Voice. One Voice was established in 2003 by Daniel Lubetsky, a Mexican-American Jewish businessman with close ties to the Obama administration. Lubetsky founded One Voice at the height of the Palestinian terror war to advance the establishment of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines. PLO Chief and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s son Yasser Mahmoud Abbas is a member of One Voice’s Trustees Advisory Council.

 

Ahead of the 2015 Knesset elections, One Voice formed V-15 as a spinoff to run a campaign to “change the government” – that is, to bring down Netanyahu. V-15’s campaign was directed by Jeremy Bird, Obama’s field director in his presidential races. It came under scrutiny from the US Senate when it was discovered that the Obama’ State Department funded its efforts.

 

Establishing a Palestinian state and fomenting an Israeli evacuation of Judea and Samaria replete with the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Israeli Jews from their homes is a goal all three groups share with the Democratic Party. And like the Democrats, the goal places all three groups in opposition to Trump. Trump’s plan makes the establishment of a Palestinian state contingent on significant changes in Palestinian actions and positions. It also foresees Israel retaining permanently all Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria and the areas surrounding them as well as the Jordan Valley.

 

In recent years, Darcheinu continued V-15’s efforts to bring down Netanyahu. In 2017-18, it sponsored the weekly leftist protests outside Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s home demanding he indicts Netanyahu. Darcheinu also funded and promoted the 2018 campaign by the far-left Commanders for Israeli Security calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines.

 

Until 2019, Darcheinu was led by Israeli businessman Kobi Richter. Richter was one of the central activists responsible for forming the Blue and White Party last year. In an interview with Globes, Richter said that he paid for the polls that convinced Gantz to join forces with Moshe Yaalon, Gabi Ashkenazy and Yair Lapid.

 

According to officials with knowledge of the events, Gantz was well-aware of the substantive problems with the map attached to the Trump peace plan when he left Washington. And it is with this knowledge in mind that we need to consider what he did when he got back.

 

Upon returning to Israel Gantz declared that he intended to introduce the Trump plan to the Knesset for approval. Some commentators portrayed his move as proof that he supported Trump’s peace plan. But given his awareness of the problems with the map and the implications for the political right, the opposite appears to be the case. Gantz’s announcement can better be seen as a bid to subvert and discredit Trump’s plan and to discredit Netanyahu and Trump personally.

 

Without corrections to the map, Likud and other right-wing lawmakers who otherwise support the plan and enthusiastically support Trump will be unable to vote in favor of it in a Knesset vote. Forcing them to oppose the plan publicly would serve several interests shared by both Blue and White and the Democrats. It would provide cover for the majority of Blue and White lawmakers who, like the Democrats wish to bury the plan. With the media scope-locked on right-wing opponents of Trump’s plan, they will avoid scrutiny of their own views.

 

The sight of Likud lawmakers opposing the Trump plan would discredit Netanyahu in the eyes of his voters. They would view him as incompetent and treacherous and many will avoid voting on March 2 as a result.

 

In light of joint opposition to the Trump plan from Likud and Blue and White lawmakers alike, center-right voters will perceive the parties as indistinguishable and follow the media’s urging to vote for Gantz.

 

For Trump, a Knesset defeat of his plan, followed in all likelihood by the defeat of Netanyahu would demoralize and anger Trump’s evangelical Christian base. Blue and White would move quickly to bury Trump’s plan. The Democrats would use the Knesset’s opposition to the plan and Gantz’s support for their positions as proof that Trump’s pro-Israel bona fides are skin deep and that Trump’s overall Middle East policy is misguided.

 

In short, advised by Benenson, after enjoying Trump’s hospitality, and benefiting from the prestige a meeting at the Oval Office confers, Gantz raised an initiative that would cause grievous political harm to Netanyahu and Trump and destroy any prospect of implementing any part of Trump’s peace plan.

 

And so we return to the issue of applying Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

 

In light of the need to correct the mistakes in the map, it is clear that full implementation of Israeli sovereignty over the areas the Trump deal recommends will take time and will be impossible before March 2. But it is still possible to implement a significant component of the plan in a manner that will avert the damage Gantz and Benenson are seeking to cause.

 

Gantz has studiously worked to prevent his party from being identified with the ideological left. To achieve this goal despite the fact that the majority of his Knesset faction holds leftist and far-leftist views, Gantz has used the two center-right lawmakers from his party’s minority Telem faction as his campaign’s primary spokesmen on television. Whereas Yoaz Hendel and Zvika Hauser are pushed in front of microphones to extol the virtues of extending Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, the majority of Blue and White lawmakers, who share Obama’s views, are hidden in the shadows.

 

Without changing the maps, and while postponing approval of the Trump plan itself, the Netanyahu government can pass a government decision to apply Israeli law to all Israeli cities, towns, and villages in Judea and Samaria immediately in accordance with the Trump peace plan. Doing so will energize right-wing voters. And it will also expose Blue and White.

 

Applying Israeli law to the Israeli communities will arouse strenuous opposition from the majority of Blue and White faction members. Their opposition to a move that the majority of Israelis support would demonstrate that despite its right-wing fig leaves, Blue and White is a leftist party. Swing voters from the center-right would get the message.

 

This then brings us to the Democrats. For years, despite their protestations of support for Israel and commitment to Israel’s security, the Democrats have adopted a policy towards Israel that revolves obsessively around their demand to destroy the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria and transfer the areas Jew free to the PLO. The Obama administration was so hateful towards these communities that it pushed through UN Security Council resolution 2234 that slanderously called them “illegal” after Donald Trump was elected president.

 

By applying Israeli law to these areas while avoiding a Knesset vote until after the map is corrected, the Netanyahu government will deny Democrats the ability to use Trump’s peace plan against him. It will also demonstrate Trump’s commitment to Israel to his evangelical base. Most importantly, applying Israeli law to the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria will take the issue of their future off the table and ensure that the Trump peace plan will survive into the next government, regardless of who wins next month.

 

Senior presidential advisor Jared Kushner has said that it would be best to wait until after the election to begin applying Israeli sovereignty to areas in Judea and Samaria. Under normal circumstances, he would be right. But given the larger context in which this issue must be judged, it is fairly clear that delaying the move until after the elections will cause great harm to President Trump, and effectively bury his peace plan while elevating the Israeli left and the Democrats.

United Islamists of America

 

By David Swindle

A version posted at American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD)

February 5, 2020

Islamist Watch

 

Clerics of two theocratic movements – Arabia’s Salafis and South Asia’s Deobandis – have spent over a century denouncing each other’s theologies, only pausing, occasionally, for tactical alliances. Over the past few years, however, ecumenical attitudes have begun to change among Western Islamist clerics. As an increasing number of modernist preachers from both movements have stepped forward to establish new forward-facing organizations, cautious longer-term partnerships between the clerical components of the two movements have begun to emerge – providing us with a glimpse of American Islamism in the years to come.

 

This new-found inclusiveness was recently evident in September 2019, when a Deobandi Islamist seminary, the Institute of Knowledge (IOK) hosted its “Ilmspiration” Conference in Anaheim, California. The purpose of the day-long event was to bring together 14 Islamist scholars and imams from the IOK and two other likeminded, leading institutions: the Qalam Institute, a wildly popular Deobandi religious training organization led by Abdul Nasir Jangda; and the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, a project of Omar Suleiman, a prominent Salafi-trained cleric.

 

Omar Suleiman (holding microphone) and other panelists at the IOK’s September 2019 conference.

 

What makes these schools and their leaders so dangerous? Whether Deobandi or Salafi, both movements are adherents to the broader political idea of Islamism, which seeks to impose an Islamic state run under Islamic law. These clerics provide much of the arguments, propaganda, and most importantly, the theology, to persuade Muslims into believing in the supremacy of a medieval religious legal system. This ideology sows the seeds of terrorism both at home and abroad.

 

In their methods, the new social media-savvy generation of Deobandi and Salafi clerics in the West are very different from the insular, ascetic preachers of the previous generation; but not in their core beliefs. Qalam’s Deobandi leader Abdul Nasir Jangda, who commands a social media following of hundreds of thousands, defends female sex slavery and advocates the death penalty for apostasy. Meanwhile, Yaqeen’s Suleiman, a media darling for his involvement in progressives’ protests against Trump administration policies, warns young women they may be killed by a “jealous dad” if they commit adultery.

 

So what influence will these organizations exert on American Islam over the next few years? And how will these once hostile sects work together?

 

In a packed, segregated ballroom – filled with hijab-clad women on the left, men on the right, and families in the middle, the founders of IOK, Qalam, and Yaqeen described their institutions’ goals and methods.

 

Suleiman went first – introducing Yaqeen as a voice of “authentic” American Islam and claiming that his organization’s goal is “to be a think tank with a megaphone.” This “megaphone,” Suleiman explained, was working to change Google search results – using search engine optimization (SEO) tricks to direct readers to Yaqeen’s research, videos, and infographics. On such search inquiries as “Islam and Apostasy,” “Was Islam spread by the sword?” and “honor killings in Islam,” Suleiman bragged that Yaqeen is now the top result after Wikipedia. He also noted Yaqeen’s ability to influence mainstream media, from the Dallas Morning News to CNN.

 

In other words, Yaqeen is not just about influencing the public’s perception of Islam; it is attempting to impose Yaqeen’s very particular strain of Islam on both the American public and American Muslims.

 

In fact, Suleiman promised “that all of the organizations in the Muslim community” can use his material for free – from children in weekend schools and teens in private Islamic schools, to adults watching on YouTube and entire congregations making use of his “masjid [mosque] resource kits… so the whole masjid can be empowered.” Yaqeen is working to ensure the next generation of American Muslims adheres to a united Islamist creed: “We’re also piloting Islamic school curriculum at 20 different schools right now and it’s going to be free, inshallah, for all Islamic schools to use, Sunday schools or otherwise.”

 

Jangda went next, explaining Qalam’s goal is to educate the Muslim ummah. “Every single person should have access to the education and the understanding of Islam,” he said, before laying out the broad range of training courses Qalam offered: a seminary for full-time students, “intensives” that last a few weeks, online classes for part-time students, and, for those on-the-go, podcasts – to which 8 million have already listened.

 

Abdul Nasir Jangda, a modernist Deobandi cleric and leader of the Qalam Institute.

 

In an [sic] pledge familiar to a Salafi audience, the Deobandi cleric spoke of teaching the form of Islam first heard by audiences of Islam’s early leaders, and expressed his hope that Qalam’s “authentic” Islam will consequently be passed on “from generation to generation.”

 

None addressed the rather important fact that Suleiman’s “authentic” Islam differs on questions of jurisprudence to Jangda’s “authentic” Islam. More important for both, it appeared, is the concept of a united Muslim ummah [global community] – a vital condition of Islamism. In fact, one of the few precursors to the new-found Salafi-Deobandi partnerships in the U.S. can be found in Haitham Al-Haddad, a British cleric who – despite the theological disparities – claims to representant both Salafi and Deobandi ideologies, for the sake of a “united ummah.”

 

Nomaan Baig, the IOK’s founder and director, went next, thanking his “brothers” Jangda and Suleiman and praising their institutions. Current IOK programs include a K-10 school, pilgrimage services, a Saturday school and after-school programs, and a successful series of podcasts. Echoing the others’ belief in the supremacy of the ummah, he declared that his own efforts at the IOK are “only doable and possible because of our collaboration.” In other words: only by putting theological differences aside can Islamism succeed.

 

And so with this understanding of the three groups’ differing areas of emphasis and target audiences, the utility of their collaboration becomes clear. As a united Islamist front, the three organizations create a chain of custody: Yaqeen creates the materials for schools and mosques; the IOK then teaches this material at schools and graduate programs, while Qalam works with young adults and future clerics.

 

The collaboration and its future prospects went so well that near the end of the day, Baig said: “So imam Omar suggested, and Shayk Abdul Nasir and I conferred that inshallah, we’re going to try and make this an annual thing here in Southern California.” Baig described the groups’ strategy as “‘complementation.’ We complement one another… because our propagation is that knowledge.”

 

Such ‘complementation’ would have been extremely unusual just a few decades ago. Deobandis and Salafis follow different madhahib [schools of jurisprudence]. The founding Deobandi seminary in India urges its students to read books of “deviant” Salafis in order to refute them. In the United States, websites sympathetic to Deobandis are devoted to challenging and denouncing the Al Maghrib Institute, a Salafi religious training organization with which Suleiman has long been involved. Salafi clerics and preachers, meanwhile, denounce Deobandis as “deviants.” Suleiman’s own teacher, the Salafi cleric Salah As-Sawy, criticizes Sufism (in which the Deobandi school is technically rooted), while Salafi activists have established dozens of social media pages and websites to “speak against this SUFI demonic cult who misguide innocent muslimeen.”

 

It is also important to note that these Deobandi institutions are relatively new – Qalam and the IOK did not exist some years ago, because Deobandi institutions were almost only found in American mosques and madaris [traditional seminaries]. Qalam and IOK are the result of a wave of new modernist Deobandis, likely taking their cue from the modernist Salafis who have rejected the political and theological isolation of the past, instead embracing social media, pan-Islamist activism and even some social justice rhetoric. Omar Suleiman (with his 318,000 Twitter followers) is perhaps the most notable example.

 

Suleiman does not just ignore the theological divisions of the past; he deliberately obscures his own affiliations, once writing, “Don’t let people box you into a group because they’re too narrow minded to think outside of their own cultish mind barriers.”

 

“When you talk to [sic] much about politics and social justice, you’ll be deemed ‘Ikhwani.’ [Muslim Brotherhood] When you stress the importance of the Sunnah too much and show aversion to innovation, you’ll be deemed ‘Salafi’ or ‘Wahhabi.’ And when you speak too much about spirituality and how the Ummah is in need of the hearts being rectified as much as it’s [sic] outwardly affairs, you’re a ‘Sufi.'”

 

Suleiman encourages this new generation of Muslims to “[S]leep peacefully while others waste their days and nights trying to ‘figure you out.'” At the IOK conference, what was once merely talk of a united ummah is no longer speculation, but a working model. Islamic division is being forgotten for the sake of Islamist unity.

 

And the impact of this alliance? As the last session of the conference began after the three leaders introduced their organizations, the moderator noted: “Inshallah, before we begin I just wanted to make one quick announcement, alhamdullilah, our registration numbers indicate one thing here today: that there are more students here than adults.”

About Islamist Watch

 

Launched in 2006, Islamist Watch is a project of the Middle East Forum. We work to combat the ideas and institutions of lawful Islamism in the United States and throughout the West. Arguing that “radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution,” we seek to expose the Islamist organizations that currently dominate the debate, while identifying and promoting the work of moderate Muslims. Islamist Watch specifically does not deal with counterterrorism but works to establish that lawful Islamism is itself a threat.

 

The Threat of Lawful Islamism

 

Islamists ultimately seek hegemonic control via a worldwide caliphate that applies strict Islamic law in full. Terrorism is one method to advance this project but it is not the only approach. Indeed, the activities of lawful Islamists will arguably prove a more effective tactic in the long term. While the public intuitively understands the threat of terrorism and is mobilized by it, and while states have well-developed institutions (law enforcement, intelligence agencies, the military, the justice system) to protect and fight against it, the activities of lawful – or non-violent – Islamists appear less alarming and institutions do not exist to counter them.

 

Non-violent extremists play an important role in the radicalization of Muslim communities. Although non-violent extremists may not always directly advocate violence, they offer a worldview in which violence against non-Muslims is ultimately justified. Islamists provide young Muslims with the theological and political justifications for terrorism. This READ THE REST

 

Islamic Jihadists Kill Christian Pastor; Begin a Deadly New Year for Christians in Nigeria


Pastor Lawan Andimi

 

I stumbled upon an ACLJ email dated 2/1/20 that submitted a number of petitions to sign to forward the cause of Christian faith in legal matters. The petition that caught my eye was a condemnation of Islamic terrorists Boko Haram executing Pastor Lawan Andimi by beheading. WHY? For the Islamic crime of not bowing to Islamic Supremacy.

 

This is the classic example of the reason I will NEVER trust an adherent of Islam.

 

In full disclosure, ACLJ sends out these petitions largely as a device of donation revenue. The ACLJ is a worthy cause. In my case, I signed the petition to voice my disapproval of Islamic persecution of Christians but did not donate money. You do as your conscience and human spirit leads you.

Islamic Jihadists Kill Christian Pastor; Begin a Deadly New Year for Christians in Nigeria

 

By CeCe Heil

1/27/20

ACLJ Petition

 

2020 is already proving to be a deadly year for innocent Christians in Nigeria.

 

Boko Haram – the Nigerian jihadist militia pledged to ISIS – just beheaded a Christian Pastor who weeks ago was shown in a hostage video telling the world: “Don’t cry. Don’t worry. But thank God for everything.”

 

As reported in the New York Times, Pastor Lawan Andimi was executed by Boko Haram and his hometown attacked:

 

Islamic militants in Nigeria have killed a Christian pastor who had pleaded for his life in a video just days earlier, and a human rights activist said Tuesday that other extremists attacked his hometown on the same day.

 

The Rev. Lawan Andimi was abducted earlier this month when Boko Haram militants attacked the Michika local government area, where he was the chairman of a local chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria. He was killed on Monday.

 

Anyone who has seen the video knows that Rev. Andimi did not plead for his life. In fact, he was calm, and even appeared to be at peace, trusting in God and stating:

 

By the grace of God, I will be together with my wife, my children, and my colleagues. [But] if the opportunity has not been granted, maybe it is the will of God . . . I have never been discouraged because all conditions that one finds himself in is in the hands of God.

 

The unshakable faith of this pastor should be humbling to every Christian. The fact that he was executed by Islamic radicals because of his faith should infuriate every human being.

 

In the same week, another group of jihadists reportedly murdered two Christian teenage girls.

 

[Muslim Fulani] herdsmen on motorbikes rode into Gora-Gan village in Zango Kataf County at about 5 p.m. shooting villagers on sight, according to a local resident. Luka Biniyat, spokesman for the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), confirmed the killing of Briget Philip, 18, and Priscilla David, 19.

 

Other young Christians were injured in the attack, including a 12-year-old.

 

The evil of these jihadists seems to know no limit. According to the New York Times, the Islamic State has even used or forced children to execute Christians:

 

On Friday, the Islamic State’s West Africa Province, known as ISWAP, released a video which showed a hooded child with pistol in hand execute a Christian man.

 

In the case of Rev. Andimi, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari tweeted:

 

I am greatly saddened by the fact that the terrorists went on to kill him even while giving signals of a willingness to set him free by releasing him to third parties. This barbarism is condemnable. We will ensure that these terrorists pay a heavy price for their evil actions. — Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) January 21, 2020

 

However in every instance of violence, the Nigerian government has seemed unable or worse, unwilling to do anything about it. The body count continues to rise, and Christians live in constant fear.

 

This deadly injustice has to stop. Nigerian Islamic terrorists are waging a horrific campaign of mass atrocities against people in their own country simply because they are Christians. And those they don’t kill they take hostage and even enslave.

 

We’ve gone to the United Nations through our European office, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), demanding international intervention for Christian teen Leah Sharibu, one of over 100 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram at gunpoint almost two years ago.

 

Boko Haram is holding the innocent young Christian prisoner because she refuses to convert to Islam. The sinister group threatened to kill or enslave her. Until recently, we weren’t even sure if Leah was still alive. Thankfully the Nigerian government  confirmed that she is, but she still desperately needs help.

 

We submitted a written submission to the U.N. Human Rights Council warning that the violence is boiling over into other regions, and asking for immediate action to stop the bloodshed and persecution before it’s too late:

 

It is imperative that the U.N. take swift action and work with the government of Nigeria to ensure that Leah and all others who remain captured are returned home safely and to put an end to the atrocities being carried out in Nigeria by Boko Haram and the Fulani Herdsmen. No one should have to live under the fear of being abducted, enslaved, or killed.

 

Action must be taken to not only stop the spread of violence within Nigeria but also the spread of violence in west Africa. Boko Haram has in fact already begun carrying out attacks in neighbouring Chad and Cameroon.

 

If nothing is done to stop these violent radicals and hold them accountable for their atrocities, the outlook for Christians in Nigeria, and across Africa, looks bleak. We cannot let these Islamic militias hunt Christians into extinction.

 

As we stated in our submission:

 

The U.N. Charter calls on the U.N. to remove threats to peace, and the Genocide Convention calls on the U.N. to prevent acts of genocide, not merely to respond to them. We have seen in Iraq and Syria what happens when the U.N. fails to take preventive measures when it is clear that mass atrocities are being carried out against a particular group of people. This is only the beginning, if meaningful action is not taken now the problem in Nigeria will worsen.

 

We ask every ACLJ member to pray for the family of Pastor Lawan, and for Leah Sharibu, that she is finally liberated from her evil captors, as well as for her family as they endure this nightmare.

 

We have a moral obligation to fight for our Christian brothers and sisters. All Christians have a right to live and worship in peace. We will continue to work at the U.N. and with world leaders until the violence is not only stopped, but action is taken to bring the extremist perpetrators to justice and prevent the bloodshed from ever happening again.

Abu Mazen on Trump’s Deal of the Century


For those of you who might only have a cursory knowledge of Islamic Terrorism aimed at Israel, the Abu Mazen in the title is the same person as Mahmoud Abbas. The “Abbas” name is the one used most often by the American Press.

Ari Bussel has been supportive of President Trump actions toward Israel in the past (e.g. moving U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem: HERE & HERE), but here – if I am understanding correctly – Ari is not pleased with Trump’s Deal of the Century, not pleased with Prime Minister Netanyahu’s cooperation with the Deal AND highlights Mahmoud Abbas speaking threats if any action is taken to enact The Deal of the Century.

 

On a personal level I have not read the Deal so I am not surprised by the Faux-Palestinian vitriol who seek to deny the existence of a Jewish State. BUT from Ari’s tone the Deal must be too conciliatory toward Arabs pretending to be Palestinians. I trust Ari. So I am now going to have to locate some Deal of the Century details for future reference.

Abu Mazen on Trump’s Deal of the Century

 

By Ari Bussel
Sent 1/30/2020 2:53 PM

 

Dear Friends,

 

The Deal of the Century was announced this week by US President Donald J Trump.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jewish donor Sheldon (& Dr. Miriam) Adelson were among those cheering onsite.  The President also met with MK and former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz who currently is the forerunner to lead the country after the upcoming elections on March 2nd, 2020.

 

The responses were quick to arrive, and we can divide them into categories:  Organizations who have to comment about anything and everything (e.g. the Reform Movement or the Zionist Organization of America); organizations who are focused on Israel (e.g. CAMERA or Arab America); and those who derive a direct benefit, some type of personal gain.  Although many in these categories employ top thinkers and analysts, allow us to ignore them all and focus on one and only one reaction.

 

Abu Mazen expressed what the entire Palestinian tribal collection wants to hear and what it believes:

 

“Jerusalem is not for sale, and all our rights are neither for sale nor for compromise.  This scheme will not succeed!”

 

Compare the reaction on the Palestinian side and that on the Jewish side.  The Palestinian position is Simple.  Concise.  Clear.  Unwavering.  Full of Conviction.  And now check the Israeli and Jewish side that has been entrusted with an undivided Jerusalem, the City where God resides among His people.  We are weak.  Ready to compromise.  Debate.  Give up.  Divide.  A sure recipe for destruction and fall; exactly what took place some two thousand years ago when the Second Temple was destroyed.

 

Not only do the Palestinians confuse sick-imagination with reality-transposed, they are not even sure who they are.  For a people that cannot even pronounce its own name (the letter “p”) or realize the root of the word is invaders to a land-not-theirs, they so crave to make their dream of a county void of Jews a reality, that anyone who is not Jewish must therefore be a Palestinian.  Jesus apparently was a Palestinian.  He is still “standing” at the checkpoints designed to prevent terrorists from passing.  Israeli citizens who happen to be Muslim are Palestinians (previously they were 1967 Arabs and before that 1948 Arabs, then 1947 Arabs and now pure “Palestinians”).  So are members of the Israeli Knesset, who spew hatred toward Israel and against the Israel Defense Forces from the podium at the parliament.  Full Israeli citizens call themselves “Palestinians,” but they will not give up their Israeli passports or all the benefits to which they are entitled as Israeli citizens.

 

There is supposedly a talk about some “border,” but the Palestinian have only one border in their mind:  The entire country, from the River to the Sea, is theirs!  No Jews allowed!  Al Quds (Jerusalem) is their eternal capital, has always been; will always be.  It is not up for dividing, sharing or bargaining.  And all the millions of eternal refugees are waiting to go back to their homes throughout the country.  In short:  No Israel.  No Jews.  Viva Palestine!

 

To this theater comes the Most Crazy American President in an announcement:  “I have the Deal of the Century!”  Is he the clown during intermission?  He is definitely not entertaining.  Does he think that the Palestinians can be bought like Putin, China or North Korea?  He simply does not understand with whom he is dealing; who really stands in front of him.  He is a most useful puppet in the hands of his Jewish Handlers.  Look, there is the Adelson couple opening their purse and pulling the strings.  What has the President not done for them already!  All will be reversed as the first order of action as soon as the new President is sworn in and replaces this travesty in announcing to DJT:  “YOU ARE FIRED!”

 

The Deal of the Century is weak because it has exposed what is important for the Jews and their puppets, including sovereignty and control over the West Bank, no Right of Return of the Palestinians, Jerusalem remaining under Israeli control and end of BDS and claims in international bodies such as the International Criminal Court.  Even Gantz (who ran on a platform “Just Not Bibi (Netanyahu)”) is supporting this plan.  All that the Deal has done is to show where Israel really hurts, both what subjects and what effective tools are currently working effectively against her.  In short, the Deal has emboldened the enemies of Israel that their struggle is working.

 

A President under Impeachment.  A Prime Minister who has been Indicted.  A main puppeteer, a filthy-wealthy Jew who controls the scene.  And a Circus like no other.  How good that people of conscience, including so many Jewish Americans and so many leading Israelis stand united against this evil plan!

 

To all lovers and protectors of Israel:  Israel’s enemies do not want peace.  They aspire death and destruction; a place clean of Jews.  They have no plan for the day after, for they only want the death of the Jewish body.  This is what cancer is all about, and any doctor who will prescribe the following course of treatment will likely lose his license:

 

“Listen Cancer, you may not even be able to pronounce your own name and likely you do not even know from where you came, but we propose the following to you:  Restrict yourself to the ovaries, stop dreaming on the liver, the lungs and the brain.  We will then let you thrive in the ovaries.  Grow and expand.  Go from strength to strength.  We love and respect you.  We will feed you and take care of you.  We will continue adoring you.  We realize you want the entire body, and that you have no plan for the day after.  (The day after, you are dead.)  We (the world) really, really like you.  We admire your convictions.  We stand with you regarding your aspirations and efforts.  Give them all up.  stay in the ovaries.”

 

Not only does the idea make no sense whatsoever, why would someone feeling strength, ever-growing strength, restrict oneself from taking, devouring, enjoying and destroying more and more?  The cancer has metastasized to the liver and the stomach and the lungs and the brain.  So why stop?  Because an American President decided to say so?  Even notable Israelis and many American Jews have succumbed to the cancer and have declared “Viva Palestine!  End the Occupation!  Free, free Palestine!  A country of all its people!”

 

Those who love Israel awake!  Not only the timing, but the mere idea of a Deal right now is contrary to basic business practices (which the President understands).  One does not negotiate from an inferior position of weakness, and both Israel and the USA are weak.

 

We must learn from the Palestinians.  They speak clearly.  They are unified.  They know exactly what they want, and this is everything.  And they  have the courage to stand by their convictions.

 

“Jerusalem is not for sale, and all our rights are neither for sale nor for compromise.  This scheme will not succeed!”

 

Always,

Ari Bussel

For those who want to expand, you are invited to continue reading:

 

The Deal of the Century was not a secret.  There was access to it on the White House website in the weeks leading to the announcement.  For very many months, it was mentioned in every opportunity.  The timing of the celebratory announcement is questionable, for the President is trying to ignore the Impeachment proceedings in the US Senate, possibly  to deflect attention, while in Israel nothing can be done permanently binding by a temporary government.  Netanyahu’s government is twice temporary, after he forced the country to go into an election following which neither he nor his opponent was able to form a government.  A second election was called with practically the same result, and now the country faces a third election in less than a year.  Without a proper budget, nothing operates as usual, and with a country under the iron grip of the judiciary and advisors who grab power, even appointments or removal of bureaucrats translate to lengthy battles.

 

The US Administration is aware of what is happening in Israel, so what might be the specific reason for the release at this time?  Possibly a parting gift to Prime Minister Netanyahu before his defeat and removal?  Alas, this is not a reason for policy that is shaping a new Middle East.

 

As much as everyone likes to think Israel is the center of the universe, Israel is a tiny country with nine million people.  It is the home of the Jewish people – all 14 to 15 million of us around the world – and the only country we can call our home.  By any stretch of the imagination, Israel is tiny.  In China, the center of outbreak of the current Corona Virus is much larger than Israel, both in size and in population.  But the world continues to focus only on Israel, as if it is the source of energy for the entire universe.

 

The powers in the Middle East are impressive:  A Turk who wants to become a Sultan over a re-emerging Ottoman Empire.  Iran whose tentacles are pressing the Mediterranean on both sides, from its southern and northern shores.  A KGB Uber-Oligarch who is meddling in Syria and wants to establish his country’s dominance in the region.  A Kingdom that is always on a threat of collapsing.  The persecuted Christians, who are raped, murdered, kidnapped, sold for slavery (sexual and labor) and burned alive in their churches throughout the region and the continent of Africa, and the world stands silent.  And then, there are the Palestinians.

 

The Palestinians invented a nationhood and borrowed the craving of the Jews to return to their homeland.  They are a very special breed.  Their brethren in the Arab world view them as inferior.   They never wanted anything to do with them.  It is a class structure, where the Iranians view themselves as superior to all, and the Arabs view the Palestinians as inferior.  Indeed, who are the Palestinians?  Their forefathers emigrated to Palestine when the Zionists from Europe came and turned a desolate area into a blooming oasis.  They (the Zionists) dried the swamps, defeated the malaria that was carried by mosquitos, created new technologies (such as drip irrigation and water desalination) and made areas previously uninhabitable into thriving communities basking in greenery, a light unto the nations, a source of goodness to the world.

 

Israel became a miracle, and it attracted workers.  Many came from Egypt, and among them Yasir Arafat and Abu Mazen’s family, as well as the families of many of the Palestinian leadership.  The area was called “Palestine,” the Jews and their institutions were often referred to as “Palestinians” and Arab nationalism was alive and thriving.  There were Arabs and Jews, the Arabs did not want the Jews, and the superpowers who inherited and dived the Ottoman Empire kept slicing the area designated for the Jews into an ever diminishing slice of land.

 

After the formation of the modern State of Israel, the nascent country absorbed some 750,000 Jewish refugees expelled from Arab countries.  Those Arabs who fled Israel – under the false promise “you will get to your homes within days, after we defeat and eliminate the Jews” – were never assimilated.  They remained as garbage in the countries to where they fled momentarily.  No one wanted them; no one was interested.  But then something unique happened:  The United Nations has created a special body to treat the newly formed “Palestinians.”  They and their descendants forever, for all eternity, are called “Refugees.”  There is no need to assimilate; there is no need for anyone (their own brethren) to absorb them.  It is very big business, employing tens of thousands of UN employees, and channeling billions of Dollars to corrupt people.  Why rattle such a thriving and successful business?

 

For several decades the Arab nations went along with this ploy, as they realized that Israel cannot be defeated militarily, despite all odds stacked against the nascent Jewish state.  Something bigger is protecting Israel (and it is NOT the United States of America).  1956.  1967.  1973.  Nothing helped.  The Jews survive and thrived.  To the Arabs, right in their corner were the Palestinians, a disposable, no-cost commodity that could be utilized to harm Israel.  Thus, for instance, Gaza remained as it is – an open wound – where Israel left it and Egypt does not want it.

 

The refugee camps in Lebanon are a source of endless liberation fighters willing and able to sacrifice themselves.  Keep them!  And in Jordan, a full majority of the entire Kingdom is made of Palestinians creating an entire Eastern front against Israel.  [The situation in Jordan has changed since Jordan is the only country that absorbed the real Syrian Refugees, and they realize what “refugee-dom” is all about and how the Palestinians are not “refugees” by any stretch of the imagination.]

 

With the advance of Iran and the real threat to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries, with the Arab Spring that turned quickly in Winter and the Muslim Brotherhood stronghold on Egypt, and with the continued slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Muslims by their Muslim brethren in Syria, the Arab World has realized the utter and complete fallacy of the Palestinians and their dream to eradicate Israel, to wipe Israel off the map.

 

The Palestinians squander the money they receive and stash it in secret bank accounts in Switzerland and France.  The Palestinians cry foul all the time, crying and bickering.  They work with Iran.  They send their young ones to explode themselves – and soon the Arabs realized that what is effective against the Jews, is also employed against them!

 

And Israel?  Contrary to what the Palestinians teach their children and the hatred they spew at every opportunity, Israel does good.  Israel extends a helping hand at a time of disaster.  Israel brings new technologies about water and agriculture in the times of peace.  Commerce with Israel is bilateral.  Israel opens field hospitals for Syrian refugees and brings the wounded from Lebanon, Syria and even Gaza to her hospitals.  Israel is the only deterrent against the spread of Iran, and she is not afraid to act – at whatever time and place she sees fit.  Israel can be trusted – by friend and foe alike.  She is always true to her word.

 

Israel wants what every normal human being wants – to live, raise her children, thrive.  She is focused on herself, not on harming others.  She has no aspirations at expanding, colonizing or occupying.  It is not easy for Israel, for where there are two Jews, there are five opinions.  And Israel has always been a country of all generals!  They Arabs see Israel; the Arabs hear the pleas and contact demands by the Palestinians; and when the Arabs do an accounting, or simple arithmetic, they understand they want to be associated with the Israelis, not with the Palestinians.

 

And so there is a titanic shift, which is based on much common sense.  What would we do if faced in the same situation:  on the one hand a group that whines and brings death and mayhem, evil and bickering; on the other a group that is good for you, and good for the entire world and humanity, that does not talk much but acts, and when it acts – there are no boundaries to the love shown.

 

The Palestinians feel neglected, left behind.  They are angrier than ever.  Remember, the Palestinians are a business.  Their main stronghold, the United Nations, that seems to be serving them and ignoring everyone else (e.g. the really-persecuted Christians) is on shaky grounds as well.  The United States, the UN’s main financial sponsor, has woken up and is bringing common sense back to the playground.  And the European Union has finally started limiting the flow of money, as a major part of it goes to reward terrorists and their families for life – for every person murdered or injured.

 

And so comes The Deal of the Century.  The USA (what one commonly refers to as “America”) has a crazy President.  He dares stand up to Putin (the Democrats say he cooperates with him), to China, to North Korea.  And now he decided to tackle the Israeli-Arab Conflict.  Alas, the Conflict seems to have resolved itself – between Israel and the real Arabs.

 

The only thing that is left from the “Conflict” (the objective of the Arabs to “throw the Israelis to the (Mediterranean) Sea”) is Iran’s promise to “Wipe Israel Off the Map” (and this must be taken seriously; with one qualification that the only reason for Iran to do so is that Israel is the only obstacle standing in its way to control the entire region, and Europe should be concerned for Europe’s sake) and the Palestinians who do not even show Israel on their maps.

 

So if there is no Israeli-Arab Conflict, what is the deal to do?  Appease the so-called Palestinians?  Serve the Jewish Puppeteers of the President of the US?

 

Whether the Deal of the Century has been in the works for the past three years or not at all, it matters not.  Also the timing of the announcement which is most suspect is not very important.  Be the reasons what they might be, they are irrelevant.  Both the US President and the Israeli Prime Minister quickly understood it – their folly was exposed, no one treats it seriously, not even those cheering in the background.  The Prime Minister announced, even before leaving DC, “we are going to annex next Sunday,” and the Trump-Team (Administration) replied “not so quickly, let us wait until after the elections.”  So quickly the two main players realized it was an exercise of hot air, that the entire exercise became beneficial only to all those “experts” and organizations that benefit from it (on the pro-Israel or anti-Israel side).

 

A Peace Plan has to be achieved by two sides who want it.  And a lasting peace will continue as long as both sides really want it.  Israel has a peace treaty with Egypt and another with Jordan.  Israel could have had a peace treaty with Syria, had it not been for the Civil War there and Assad’s butchering hundreds of thousand of his own people.

 

Another Peace Plan that should serve as an applicable example is the one between the Allies and the Nazis.  Except, the Middle East is not there yet.  The main lesson is that one side really wanted “Peace” to bring the cessation of its utter and complete decimation, and the other side was both benevolent and smart to help the Germans rebuild.

 

The Palestinians live a very good life.  Visit their homes and see.  Visit their shopping centers.  Watch their tv channels.  The Palestinians need Israel.  They come to work in Israel.  They sell products to Israel.  They depend on Israel as a neighbor and partner.  And they want to eliminate her and have an area free and clean of Jews.

 

Instead of investing in infrastructure and institutions of civil society, they dig death tunnels, manufacture weapons of mass destruction and excel in death and mayhem.  In short, they do everything opposite logic.

 

In addition to glorifying homicide martyrs as deserving 72 virgins, they propagate and expand the fantasy that the Jews will be eliminated, that the Jews do not deserve to live.  They twist history, using elements they like as their own and others to their advantage.  So they tell the Jews to pack their belongings and “go back.”  They remove the archeological findings under the Temple Mount and trash them as rubbish, and then they declare the Temple Mount was really never there, the Jewish “story” of the Bible has not connection to the place.

 

They do excel, however, in a thousand and one Arabian nights – weaving a story like no other.  And the story resonates with people around the world.  Where a story takes hold, no deal or reality program can overcome.  The Deal of the Century has not even lived its millisecond of fame, it was an orchestration that failed, a momentary distraction.   Until Israelis  take hold of the helm, until they start fighting for their own existence and survival, no substitute (as good and well-intentioned as it might be) will succeed.  Now, let us return to real life.

PLO calls for terror against Trump’s deal: ‘Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms’


The inherent Jew-hatred is evident by Muslim Palestinians when their leaders call for violence EVEN before examining President Trump’s peace plan labeled The Deal of the Century. Not that even an examination would matter when a religion tells its adherents to hate anything refusing to bow to Islamic Supremacism.

PLO calls for terror against Trump’s deal: ‘Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms’

 

By Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Jan 28, 2020

Palestine Media Watch

 

PLO calls for terror:

 

“Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms and manners”

 

  •  Fatah: “We will redeem you with our blood, #Palestine” 
  •  PA: “No” to Trump’s “deal of the century”

 

 

“#No_to_the_deal_of_the_century

 

In anticipation of the revelation of US President Trump’s Middle East peace plan – the so-called “deal of the century” – the PLO, the PA, and Fatah are emphasizing their rejection of the still unknown plan. They have also announced a “day of rage” on the day the plan is revealed, and called for “escalation of resistance” – a Palestinian euphemism for violence and terror.

 

Abbas’ Fatah Movement posted a photo of a Palestinian rock thrower in a call for violence accompanied by text implicitly encouraging Palestinians to seek death as martyrs for “Palestine”:

 

Posted text and text on image: “We will redeem you with our blood, #Palestine” (Official Fatah Facebook page, Jan. 26, 2020)

 

Similarly, the PLO urged Palestinians to “escalate the resistance and the struggle” against Israel “in all its forms and manners.” Terms like “all forms” and “all means” are ‎used by PA leaders to include the use of all types of violence, including deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as stabbings and shootings, as well as throwing rocks and Molotov Cocktails:

 

“The [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) again expressed its objection to every plan, project, deal, or attempt to harm the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights…  The National Council yesterday [Jan. 26, 2020] demanded that the PLO Executive Committee implement all of the National Council and [PLO] Central Council’s decisions – and foremost among them the decision determining that the transition period has ended with all of the political, security, and financial obligations in it towards the Israeli occupation – and also to take all the necessary steps to encourage and escalate the resistance and the struggle against the occupation in all its forms and manners.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

Palestinian groups also declared the day Trump announces his peace plan a “day of mass rage.” Palestinian Media Watch has documented that PA and Fatah leaders view “days of rage” as preludes to “intifadas” – campaigns of violence and terror.

 

The [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces of the Ramallah and El-Bireh district have declared the date of the announcement of ‘the deal of disgrace’ as a day of mass rage in response to the American-Israeli aggression, on which the Palestinian people will say its piece in one voice: the deal will not pass, and our people is capable of thwarting it.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

The cartoon at the top above shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas holding his fingers up in a “V” for victory, but in place of his hand is the first word of the text: “No to the deal of the century.” (Official Fatah Facebook page, Jan. 23, 2020)

 

The PA presidency has also announced that “there is no discussion with the American administration, neither brief nor long,” and that its position is unwavering on “everything regarding the unacceptable deal of the century.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 25, 2020)

Another Fatah post showed a tiny Trump facing a giant Palestinian rock thrower:

The following are longer excerpts of the texts cited above:

 

“The [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) again expressed its objection to every plan, project, deal, or attempt to harm the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights…

In a statement, the National Council yesterday [Jan. 26, 2020] demanded that the PLO Executive Committee implement all of the National Council and [PLO] Central Council’s decisions – and foremost among them the decision determining that the transition period has ended with all of the political, security, and financial obligations in it towards the Israeli occupation – and also to take all the necessary steps to encourage and escalate the resistance and the struggle against the occupation in all its forms and manners (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror). This is in order to defend our people’s permanent rights, which [US President Donald] Trump’s administration and the occupation are attempting to eliminate through what is called ‘the deal of the century’ (i.e., refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan, which he said he would reveal to Israeli leaders in late January 2020)…

The [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces of the Ramallah and El-Bireh district have declared the date of the announcement of ‘the deal of disgrace’ as a day of mass rage in response to the American-Israeli aggression, on which the Palestinian people will say its piece in one voice: the deal will not pass, and our people is capable of thwarting it.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

Palestinian National and Islamic Forces – an unaffiliated coordinating body comprised of representatives from factions in the PLO and outside the PLO. The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces were established in 2000 shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), under the authorization of Yasser Arafat and the leadership of terrorist Marwan Barghouti. During the PA terror campaign it played an active role in coordinating political efforts and terror attacks against Israel, but since the end of the campaign it has been less significant and its activity is primarily centered in Gaza.

 

Headline: “The Democratic National Coalition called to intensify the popular resistance”

The Palestinian Democratic National Coalition forces called to intensify the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) in all of the Palestinian territories. The forces – which include the Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF, a terror organization and PLO member; see note below –Ed.), the Arab Liberation Front, the Palestinian Arab Front, and the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (i.e., all PLO members) – discussed ways of intensifying the popular resistance against the settlement, after their meeting at the Popular Struggle Front’s headquarters in Ramallah…

The Democratic National Coalition forces called on the international community to pressure the extremist right-wing occupation government and [US President Donald] Trump’s administration, the occupation’s partner in its aggression against our people, to immediately stop the settlement and cease the attacks against the Palestinian national rights and sovereignty, in order to prevent pushing the region into a whirlpool of violence whose end will be bad and bitter.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 24, 2020)

 

The terms “peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance” are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded in stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks. Abbas said: “We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is.” http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437

 

Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF) – A terror organization and member of the PLO. The PLF is headed by Secretary-General Wasel Abu Yusuf who is also a member of the PLO Executive Committee. The PLF has been responsible for numerous terror attacks, including the hijacking of an Italian cruise ship in 1985, in which one Jewish hostage in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, was shot, and then thrown overboard. The US has listed the PLF as a terror organization.

 

Headline: “The [PA] presidency: There is no discussion with the American administration regarding what is called ‘the deal of the century’”

“The Palestinian [PA] presidency emphasized yesterday [Jan. 24, 2020] that there is no discussion with the American administration, neither brief nor long. This was in response to American President Donald Trump’s statements, according to which ‘his administration spoke briefly with the Palestinians and we will speak with them again.’

The presidency again emphasized through its Spokesman [and PA Deputy Prime Minister] Nabil Abu Rudeina that the Palestinian position is clear and firm in its rejection of Trump’s decisions regarding Jerusalem (refers to his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital; see note below –Ed.) and the rest of the issues, and everything regarding the unacceptable deal of the century (i.e., refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan).” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 25, 2020)

 

Nabil Abu Rudeina also serves as PA Minister of Information, Fatah Commissioner of Information, Culture, and Ideology, and Fatah Central Committee member.

 

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel – On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.

 

The US embassy was transferred from Tel Aviv and opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, the anniversary of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948 according to the Gregorian calendar.

If you’ve ever Islamic revered writings such as the Quran, Hadith, Sira and various Muslim theologians commenting on the big revered three AND you are not an adherent of Islam, YOU ARE AWARE ISLAM IS EVIL toward all things non-Islamic.

 

Even though those revered writings designate Jews and Christians as People of the Book (because a Muslim dare not say Holy Bible), it is written of them THAT failure to submit to the superiority of Islam is death.

 

I’m a Christian that refuses to relegate my faith to an inferior position submitting to Muslim lies about Jesus Christ the Son of God Crucified to death on a Cross and arisen three days later to His Glorified life fully human and fully God. Christian beliefs labeled as blasphemy in Islam.

 

 

It has been quite some time since I have posted on Islam exposing that belief system as deficient, contrary and downright anti-Christian. And so I have been saving some posts from other blogs and websites exposing a nefarious Islam (primarily from Sheaholliman’s Weblog) which I will cross post here (probably with a little spellcheck applied).

 

If you are Facebook poster be careful. Sharing may land you in Facebook Jail. As you will read in an Editor’s note, I’m serving restricted time in Facebook Jail until April 18. I’m restricted to only Groups I moderate, but I got a feeling a full restriction is in my future for I also will not submit to Fascistbook Censors.

“Hating and Loving” for Islam

 

By Raymond Ibrahim

01/17/2020

Originally FrontPageMag.com

RaymondIbrahim.com

 

During a New Year’s Eve Islamic terror attack that took place in Russia minutes before the clock struck midnight, two Muslim men—Akhmed Imagozhev, 22 and Mikail Miziyev, 18—drove their car into and stabbed to death two police officers, one a married father of four.  Other officers subsequently shot one of the jihadis dead, while hospitalizing the other.

 

Akhmed Imagozhev, 22 and Mikail Miziyev, 18

 

An image of the two Muslim men posing with knives was later found on social media (right).  Beneath it appears the words, “love and hatred based on Tawhid!”

 

This is hardly the first time this ostensibly oxymoronic phrase appears in connection with Islamic acts of terror.  After launching a successful attack that killed two policemen in the Kashmir Valley, the militant commander of Kashmir’s Hizb al-Mujahidin—“the Party of Jihadis”—justified the murders by saying,  “We love and hate for the sake of Allah.”

 

In this otherwise cryptic motto lie the roots of Islam’s conflict with the rest of the world.  “Loving and hating” is one of several translations of the Islamic doctrine of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ (which since 2006 I have generally translated as “Loyalty and Enmity”).

 

The wala’ portion—“love,” “loyalty,” etc.—requires Muslims always to aid and support fellow Muslims (including jihadis, for example through funds or zakat).  As one medieval Muslim authority explained, the believer “is obligated to befriend a believer—even if he is oppressive and violent toward you — while he must be hostile to the infidel—even if he is liberal and kind to you” (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 64 ).   This is a clear reflection of Koran 48:29: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves.”

 

But it is the bara’—the “hate,” the “enmity”—that manifests itself so regularly that even those in the West who are not necessarily acquainted with the particulars of Muslim doctrine sense it.  For instance, in November 2015, after a series of deadly Islamic terror strikes in the West, then presidential candidate Donald Trump said, “I think Islam hates us.  There’s something there that — there’s a tremendous hatred there. There’s a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There’s an unbelievable hatred of us.”

 

This “tremendous” and “unbelievable hatred” is not a product of grievances, political factors, or even an “extremist” interpretation of Islam; rather, it is a direct byproduct of mainstream Islamic teaching.  Koran 60:4 is the cornerstone verse of this doctrine and speaks for itself.  As Osama bin Laden once wrote:

 

As to the relationship between Muslims and infidels, this is summarized by the Most High’s Word: “We renounce you. Enmity and hate shall forever reign between us—till you believe in Allah alone” [Koran 60:4]. So there is an enmity, evidenced by fierce hostility from the heart. And this fierce hostility—that is, battle—ceases only if the infidel submits to the authority of Islam, or if his blood is forbidden from being shed [i.e., a dhimmi], or if Muslims are at that point in time weak and incapable. But if the hate at any time extinguishes from the heart, this is great apostasy!… Such, then, is the basis and foundation of the relationship between the infidel and the Muslim. Battle, animosity, and hatred—directed from the Muslim to the infidel—is the foundation of our religion.  (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 43).

 

Similarly, the Islamic State confessed to the West in the context of Koran 60: 4 that “We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers.”  As for any and all political “grievances,” these are “secondary” reasons for the jihad, ISIS said:

 

The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you.

 

Koran 58:22 goes as far as to praise Muslims who kill their own non-Muslim family members: “You shall find none who believe in Allah and the Last Day on friendly terms with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger—even if they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their nearest kindred.”

 

According to Ibn Kathir’s mainstream commentary on the Koran, this verse refers to a number of Muslims who slaughtered their own non-Muslim kin (one slew his non-Muslim father, another his non-Muslim brother, a third—Abu Bakr, the first revered caliph of Islamic history—tried to slay his non-Muslim son, and Omar, the second righteous caliph, slaughtered his relatives).   Ibn Kathir adds that Allah was immensely pleased by their unwavering zeal for his cause and rewarded them with paradise. (The Al Qaeda Reader75-76).

 

In fact, verses that support the divisive doctrine of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ [Blog Editor: an excellent post on this doctrine HERE] permeate the Koran (see also 4:89, 4:144, 5:51, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23, and 60:1).  There is one caveat, captured by Koran 3:28: when Muslims are in a position of weakness, they may pretend to befriend non-Muslims, as long as the hate carries on in their hearts (such is taqiyya; see herehere, and here for examples; for other Islamic sanctioned forms of deception, read about tawriya, and taysir).

 

Little wonder, then, that America’s supposed best Muslim friends and allies—such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar—have issued fatwas calling on all Muslims to “oppose and hate whomever Allah commands us to oppose and hate, including the Jews, the Christians, and other mushrikin [non-Muslims], until they believe in Allah alone and abide by his laws, which he sent down to his Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.”

 

Indeed, because enmity for non-Muslims is so ironclad in the Koran, mainstream Islamic teaching holds that Muslim men must even hate—and show that they hate—their non-Muslim wives, for no other reason than that they are “infidels.”

 

If Muslims must hate those closest to them—including fathers, sons, brothers, and wives—simply because they are non-Muslims, is there any surprise that so many Muslims hate foreign “infidels” who live oceans away—such as Americans, who are further portrayed throughout the Muslim world as trying to undermine Islam?

 

In short, jihad—or terrorism, war on non-Muslims for no less a reason than that they are non-Muslims—is simply the physical realization of an overlooked concept that precedes it: Islam’s unequivocal command for Muslims to hate non-Muslims.

Around the world, people who leave the faith of Islam face state persecution, imprisonment, torture, and even execution, as well as violence, death threats, and ostracization from their own communities.

 

Many ex-Muslims risk so-called honor killing, forced marriage, kidnap, and communal violence at the hands of their families for “bringing shame” on their community. In Western countries, ex-Muslims are often thrown out of the family and face isolation and exclusion.

 

Mohamad grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

 

His Testimony is a remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how he ran from her father’s threats to find refuge in America. Most of all, it is the story of a young man who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus—and who inspires us to do the same.

Sacred Deception – Taqiyya – Political Islam

Western Civilization in Peril

Originally from Political Islam (11/14/14)

Taqiya-ISLAMIC DECEPTION

 

VIDEO: Bill Warner, PhD: Sacred Deception — Taqiyya

 

“I’d like to talk to you about what I find a fascinating topic that is the topic of Islamic ethics, but in particular, a part of Islamic ethics which is called sacred deception or Taqiyya.  Let me give you a few ethical rules that come from the Hadith: a Muslim does not cheat another Muslim in business a Muslim doesn’t kill another Muslim a Muslim doesn’t touch another Muslim’s wife and a Muslim doesn’t lie to another Muslim.

 

You notice something here? That’s right. You and I are left out because you see Islam is not a symmetric ethical system. The golden rule is symmetric. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That is, there’s a balance here; the other and yourself are seen as equal. But in Islam if you’re a Kafir, you’re never equal to the Muslim. Islam does not have a golden rule. The Kafir is always inferior.

 

Now then, let’s talk about lying and deception. First let’s start with the fact that Allah has 99 names and one of those 99 names is he is the best of deceivers. But Allah is also the best of plotters and schemers so given that, it isn’t too surprising that we find in the Koran 16:106 “Those who disbelieve in Allah after having believed, who open up their hearts to disbelief will feel the wrath of Allah and have a terrible punishment.” In other words, apostates can be killed or otherwise punished. But it goes further. “But there is no punishment for anyone who is compelled to deny Allah in words but whose heart is faithful.” So in other words, a Muslim can lie about Islam if it serves Islam. And one of the ways he can serve Islam is that the Muslim is not discriminated against.

 

Here we have another in Koran 3:28: “Believers should not take Kafirs (unbelievers) as friends in preference to other believers. Who ever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah.” (In other words, if you’re a real friend [to a Kafir], you’re no longer friend of Allah). “ . . . unless you but guard yourself against them [Kafirs], taking precautions.” What this is interpreted to mean is that a Muslim can act friendly but he’s not actually the friend. That’s what is wrong. In other words, a Muslim may never give preference to a Kafir over a Muslim. There are, by the way, no less than 12 verses which say that a Muslim is not the friend of the Kafir.

 

Now let’s turn to the Hadith. “Mohammed: ‘Who will kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has offended Allah and his prophet?’ A Muslim: ‘I will Mohammed. Would you have me do so?’‘ Yes. ’‘In order to kill him, I will need to deceive him. May I do that?’ Mohammed: ‘Yes.’” So, the Muslim deceived Ka’b bin Ashraf and he did kill him. What is this? This is the Sunna of Mohammed; it is possible to lie to the Kafir as long as it advances Islam. This is the nature of Taqiyya.

 

Now there is another way in which a Muslim can lie. There’s a hadith, a fairly well-known hadith, in which there are three reasons for Muslims to lie. One is jihad, that is the struggle against the Kafir. So a Muslim can lie to you anytime he needs to advance Islam. The other is a Muslim a lie to another Muslim if it will make the situation better. And a husband and wife may lie to each other as long as it smooths the relationships in the household. So deception is part of Islam. Allah is a deceiver. Mohammed was a deceiver, and therefore, every Muslim can be a deceiver. It is so special that it has a name, Taqiyya. So the next time you’re hearing something about Islam that just doesn’t sound right, and it comes from the mouth of a Muslim, you’re right. It’s not right. It’s a lie. It is Taqiyyah.

Guide to Islam And Islamic Extremism

0Censor Guide to Islam And Islamic Extremism

 

What is Islamic Extremism

 

Islamic extremism is a term that will cause many of us to have nightmares, imagining some person in our dreams with a mask and a turban, screaming Islamic phrases out as they jump with no fear into a crowd of people and blow themselves up. But what is Islamic extremism?

 

I imagine what standards you are viewing this against would change or alter your perception of what is extremist or not, so to keep things simple, how about we stay within Western Based perceptions. These are rather simple, an Islamic extremist is anyone that feels their religion gives them the right to try to dictate to people in the West what our interactions not only with them should be, but when forceful suggestions don’t work violence is acceptable.

 

What is the difference between Islam and the other Abrahamic faiths

 

Before I get too much into this, I need all to understand the differences between the faiths. While Jews believe that their faith is held sacred, the more orthodox may turn ornery if they feel you are infringing on their right to practice their faith, but as a rule, they would never dream of trying to force others to convert, they just want to be left alone. Judaism has made conversion hard to prevent people from converting for frivolous reasons. The violence one can read in the time of the early advent of Judaism, such as the Exodus, the conquering of the land wiping out of the people, this is not pertinent to Judaism today, the violent parts are rejected universally.

 

Christianity while more an outgoing faith in the way of proselytizing, the true teachings of the faith teach that this must be done with love, violence is rejected, forgiveness is to be handed out freely. Before anyone says that Christianity was very violent in the past, you are correct, but this was not due to the teachings, this was due to the politicization of the faith.

 

Islam

 

Screen Capture-mosque

 

But Islam is different, and please, don’t take this as saying that all Muslims are violent, in fact, that majority of Muslims are peace-loving people who as a rule have no problems living with people of other faiths. But this is where the similarities end, Islam was founded on violence, it teaches in its core teachings that violence is acceptable, in fact, will be needed in the end to force all to submit to  the faith; if you are truly going to delve deep into the faith, there is little you can do to get away from this.

 

But what is Islam? At its most basic component, you have to look at what Islam means, it means submission. Submission to whom? It is submission to Allah, and this was directed and taught by what they consider as the highest prophet, Mohammad. Mohammad in his teachings that were recorded in the Quran left little to choice (he never wrote the Quran, he was illiterate, others recorded what they heard him say), he openly stated he was the final word on all, what he stated did change over time. Early verses of Islam more peaceful in nature, later in life Mohammad was far from peaceful, these teachings take precedence over all others, thus the more peaceful verses when it was better to live in peace due to a lack of power  are superceded later with verses telling them to be not peaceful, naturally a Muslim will not ever offer up this information, instead will continue to quote the peaceful verses even though they know they gave way to the later ones.

 

Unlike Judaism and Christianity, both which did have parts that dictated how to treat others,  with the Jewish law you have parts that dictated how a Jew should live, it never gives mention to how a none Jew should live their life. Judaism wanted their people to live separate, not make demands on the rest of the world to satisfy their faith. Christianity as well tells its people to give to G-d what is his, to man what is his, and live your life within a way that is permitted within the system, that is unless the system is in direct violation of your faith (you saw this with martyrs in Rome in the advent of Christianity).

 

But Islam does not make this distinction, it tells its rulers how to rule, what their outlook should be towards others. Any land conquered under the name of Islam is held in holy trust (that has always been the core of the problem with Israel, not over some imaginary right to heritage as the “Palestinians” love to claim). To this day materials in Islamic nations speak of the part of Spain by its Islamic name, Libya’s Gaddiffi made a statement once about taking back over holy land in Spain, they were going to do so not by war, rather by using the Europeans own political correctness against them; sadly this is looking more and more probable as time goes on.

 

In Islam Sharia is the law of the land, all laws, even in more secular nations like Egypt are still very much influenced by Sharia. A good example is if you go to the most moderate of Islamic majority of states, such an Egypt or Indonesia, it is illegal for one to convert an Islamic person out of their faith, but it is 100% legal for any Islamic person to convert or proselytize one from another faith to Islam. Even divorce in Indonesia is controlled by the Islamic faith. In their 1974 Marriage Law they have laws for each faith to marry and divorce, they set up the different customs to handle divorce, but Muslims only have unwritten customary (adat) law and  Muslim religious law.

 

Another problem is honesty. Judaism and Christianity teach you should be honest, not lie, but Islam teaches it is perfectly acceptable to lie your head off, so long as it promotes Islam or is protecting you in some way. And this is not just my understanding, Islam teaches this rather plainly.

 

Holy Koran with isolated. Verse of the koran.

Quran

 

Quran (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.

 

Quran (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves” against danger, meaning that there are times when a Muslim may appear friendly to non-Muslims, even though they should not feel friendly.

 

Quran (9:3)“…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…” The dissolution of oaths is with pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong but were evicted anyway.  (The next verse refers only to those who have a personal agreement with Muhammad as individuals – see Ibn Kathir vol 4, p 49)

 

Quran (66:2)“Allah has already ordained for you the dissolution of your oaths…”

 

Quran (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who had to “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.

 

Quran (2:225)“Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”

 

Quran (3:54)“And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.” The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means ‘deceit’. If Allah is supremely deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. (See also 8:30 and 10:21)

 

This is a problem when dealing with Muslims, more so when doing this with nation states. They are taught that they can lie if it aids them, they can make treaties with none believers, these should only be used as a means to build back up strength so you can attack again. I have told many, if you hear one thing but see another, I would never go by what I hear, rather what I see.

 

Treatment of none Islamic people in Muslim Majority Nations

 

ISIS Terror (victims prepared for beheading)

 

In many places they either don’t allow other faiths to live in their land (Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, EAU), or if they do they have to live in a subservient role to Islam, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, and the rest of the Arab world. In the past, all people not Muslim had to always stay in a submissive way, had to pay Jizyah {Jizhya} (الجزية) this was a tax all unbelievers were supposed to pay for not being Muslim. This was not so much intended as protection money, in the way of extortion, it was meant to humiliate, to show that they were beneath the Muslim’s, as such they were obligated to pay this, so they could live. Here is what the Quran says about it:

 

Quran 9:29 [Blog Editor: My Word Doc would not acquire the Arabic characters for the below translation. To read the original you will go to the LINK then scroll to this point.]

Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel subdued.

 

What effect does Islamic Migration have

 

Dr. Peter Hammond, a researcher that has spent his life studying Islamic migration, the effect on the surrounding population, the interaction of the Islamic migrants on the general population, made a rather startling and troubling find concerning their demands on the nation and the people. In his book Slavery, Terrorism and Islam he breaks down Islam’s interactions with the society around them as they grow, rather than give my own quotes, I will quote him:

 

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

 

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

 

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

 

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

 

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

 

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

 

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States ).

 

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

 

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

 

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

 

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

 

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

 

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

 

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare:

 

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

 

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

 

Albania — Muslim 60%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

 

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

 

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

 

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

 

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

 

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

 

I think one of the best quotes I have seen concerning this came from Leon Uris:

 

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

 

Conclusion

 

Western-Muslim-parents

 

So are all Muslims bad? Of course not, they are far from it, the problem we have today is the press is so intent on covering for all Muslims, they either ignore or disregard the bad ones in their midst. In other cases they try to say incorrectly that groups like ISIS are not true Muslims, I would beg to differ, they are actually doing nothing that Mohammad himself did not do.

 

In other cases they give such low expectations, when places like Saudi Arabia say that women now have more value than livestock, the left, and feminist groups for their part,  explode in their praise of them for their enlightened outlook.

 

Sadly these are the same feminist and women rights activist that seems to think what they stand for has no bearing with Islamic women or for Western Women victimized by Muslim males. Rather than stick up for the Western woman being attacked, sexually molested and raped by Muslim migrants, they attack them, saying it is somehow their fault, maybe they should have dressed better (we all know if it was a rape from a Western male, they would never dream of making this claim, nor would they blame the woman for such a heinous act).

 

Islamic Terrorism USA

 

You see this in the press, rather than say there is a terrible problem with Islam, they blame it on the economy, lack of jobs, western ideology being forced on these people. And while doing this they ignore there are two forces at work within Islam in the present, one is looking to bring it back to its more radical ways when it was at its height of power, they dream of recreating a Caliphate again.

 

The press ignores this, makes excuses for them, or says look at the peaceful Muslims, what about them? The bottom line is like with many groups, the peaceful ones are irrelevant, they do nothing to change the narrative of the radicals, thus giving them power by their silence, the ones that do speak are quickly attacked or dispatched. In other cases people who speak out are ostracized by the whole, they are seen as somehow being traitors to Islam.

 

In the same way that you had peaceful loving Germans in WW2, peaceful loving Chinese under Mao, and equally loving peaceful people under Stalin, they did not drive the narrative, their silence gave power to the minority, end the end they were irrelevant to what was driving the narrative in those countries.

 

By not exposing this you give power to the radicals and make the voices of the peace and change even more irrelevant. In the cold war, we did not say look at how peaceful the majority of the Russians were, we took groups that wanted to bring freedom to the Soviet system, recognized and gave them both support and resources to do something, they soon became many and changed the system from within. We need to do the same with Islam, stop empowering tyrants and radical dictators, we need to start aiding the ones trying to drag Islam into the 21 century.

 

President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi – Egypt

 

You do have heroic people within the Islamic community, Egypt’s ruler openly called for a dialog to bring Islam into the modern age, to reject the violent bent seen in the Koran. Sadly most of the press was silent, the Western powers, for the most part, ignored this, under Obama instead we have catered to the more violent, then ignoring the radicals, calling them JV or amateurish; while the US has changed this outlook under Trump, seems he is more willing to push to call out the radicals, to be fair he is also willing to embrace the ones that started most of this last wave of radicalness, the Saudi’s.

 

But then even within a society as closed off and radical as Saudi Arabia is, we see cracks in that growing within that society as they try to move more towards getting away from their radical ideology. Today there are calls for women to drive, openly having a dialog with Israel, actually allowing Jews within their nation and having leaders go to Israel. The Saudi’s and other more orthodox Islamic states seem to be changing, but then there are pulls from nations like Iran that are pushing to bring more fundamentalism, just what they see as the proper way.

 

Islam can pull itself from the past, but if it does not, we need to be ready to call it out for this, not make excuses for them. We need to see support, aid and giving open alliance to leaders that are pushing for a more modern view of Islam, openly call out the ones that aren’t, and in nations like Saudi Arabia and the other nations around them, we need to let them be on notice, now more is the West going to turn a blind eye towards spreading of radicalism, but we will be quick to notice and praise when they make moves to stop it.

Update to The Palestinian Myth


I don’t write or post my Pro-Israel disposition as much as I would like. TO BE CLEAR though I am quite the Christian Zionist (Though extremely critical of so-called Replacement Theology) in the sense I firmly believe God Almighty Promised Land to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Moses and Joshua led those direct descendants out of Egyptian captivity to the Land of Promise eventually named after Jacob’s God-given name Israel. And all the history of acquisition and expulsions and reacquisitions is not even close to complete since modern Israel is only a fraction of the Land Promised by God Almighty.

 

With that brief yet incomplete belief statement that is Pro-Jewish and Pro-Israel, I discovered Peter Baum added some more information about faux Palestinians. In full disclosure I did my best to corroborate Baum’s information with some source links.

Update to The Palestinian Myth

 

From Peter Baum

1/12/20

 

If any further proof were needed that the Palestinians are nothing more than an Arab Nationalist political group established in the 1960’s and never existed as a people, culture or race then the 1st census as noted below is that proof.

Absolutely no mention of either Palestinians nor Felastinians as a people, race, nation or religion.

 

Another thing I wanted to bring to your attention is that the very 1st Census done in the area was by the Jesuit priest Adriaan Reland [WikiZero] in 1697 by the authority of the Ottoman empire. The study written completely in Latin was published by Willem Broedulet, Uthrect, in 1714.

The study called: “Palaestina ex monumentis veteribus illustrata” [According to Google Translate Latin-English: The Palestine Monument old Illustrate – I found a pdf version 669 pgs. in Latin].

And I quote the major finding: Members of the region are mainly concentrated in the areas of Jerusalem, Acre, Safed, Jaffa, Tiberius and Gaza. In all these places the majority of the residents are Jews, Christians and very few others. Very few Muslim who are Bedouin came to serve as seasonal workers in agriculture or building trade.

Furthermore the census also says that the population of Jerusalem at that time was about 5000 people, mostly Jews, few Christians and very few Muslims.

Know The Facts

The Palestinian Myth by Peter Baum

 

In previous posts I have exposed various myths regarding the anthropological miracle and history of those Arabs defined by others as Palestinians.

It is abundantly apparent that –

 

a) not one historical Palestinian or Fellastinian individual of historical profile existed for the period 3000 BC to 1964 AD nor

b) was there any record during this period ( 3000 BC to 1964 AD ) of any wars or battles fought by Palestinians or Fellastinians against foreign invaders (Romans, Umayyads, Byzantines, Persian, Crusaders, Kurds, Ottomans etc.) in an attempt to ‘regain’ captured Jerusalem or ‘Palestine’. I guess the Palestinians were not around during these 4964 years but were miraculously created in 1964 with the help of the KGB.

 

Moreover, given the religious claims the ‘Palestinians ‘ have over their beloved Jerusalem and the geographical land mass they believe has been their homeland since time immemorial it is indeed ironic, bewildering and astonishing to say the least that that the words – Canaan (which is where the Palestinians now tell everyone they originate from), Israel (the land not the people), Judea, Jerusalem nor Palestine are ever mentioned in the Koran.

 

Muslims turn their backs on Jerusalem when praying in contempt. This originated when the prophet Mohammed ordered the slaughter of Jews who having converted to Islam (to avoid taxes) secretly maintained their Judaism. The prophet thereafter also ordered Muslims change their direction of prayer.

 

We are also told by modern day Imams that Mohammed ascended to heaven from the Furthest Mosque – apparently located in Jerusalem. This is simply historically impossible as he died in 636 and the Mosque in Jerusalem was not built until 715!!

 

Lastly and this is worthy of further debate. The Koran bequeaths the Holy Land to the Children of Israel (sura 5.21) [Blog Editor: For Quranic context read Sura 5.21-26. It is interesting Sura 5 if written chronologically would have been numbered 112 out of 114 and written from Medina; hence Islamic abrogation means this surah is more valid than the 111 preceding suras.]. Any Muslim who is fighting for this land (the Palestinians) are in total defiance of the Koran. Many pragmatic Imams who recognize this fact are suggesting that the current turmoil in the Muslim world, the violence and the Shi’a, Sunni divisions is directly related to the Palestinian claim on Jerusalem in total defiance and indeed mocking the Koran.

 

Ironically when Jordan had control of Jerusalem 1948 – 1967, they moved and located all Government offices to Amman to dilute the importance of Jerusalem. Furthermore not one Arab Head of State visited Jerusalem while under Jordanian occupation. Thus other myths exposed …

 

  • Jerusalem is not and has never been important to Islam. I repeat it is NEVER mentioned in the Koran. Therefore you will not be surprised to learn that it was NEVER mentioned in the PLO charter of 1964!

 

There are numerous historical quotations verifying the non-importance of either Jerusalem to Islam and the myth of the ‘indigenous Palestinians’ to the land mass. I have selected just some.

 

Ibn Taymiyyah [See Also Ibn Taymiyyah Explained] 1263 – 1328, one of Islam’s foremost historical scholars [The National Interest (though a bit too critical of Trump) nails Ibn Taymiyyah influence on today’s Islam] wrote: ‘…In Jerusalem there is not a place one calls sacred and the same holds true for the tombs of Hebron’.

 

The other myth that we have recently exposed is the numerical absurdity of Palestinian refugees. The generally accepted current (but fictional) narrative is that in 1948 there were supposedly 700,000 Palestinian refugees forcibly removed from their homes by the Zionists. Now in 2018 and a after a ‘genocide’ committed by the Israelis there are now 7 million Palestinians.

 

Human reproduction records have been blown out of the water by the sex craved, abundantly productive Palestinian women. If British women could reproduce at the same rate the population of London would be 85 million and New York City would be 120 million! [Blog Editor: Something to dwell on as Multiculturalist bring millions of Muslim refugees to Europe and America!] And all that without a genocide! Both the original and current refugee figures have been grossly exaggerated for political purposes but seem to go unchallenged by both the media and our Parliamentary representatives. Moreover there is sufficient evidence to verify the majority of Arabs entered Palestine on the back of Zionist economic growth and were never indigenous to the area.

 

Tewlik [or Tawfiq] Bey El Houran [or al-Hourani], Governor of Houran Province in Southern Syria stated in an interview with La Syne August 12th 1934, ‘that in the last few months 30000 to 36000 Syrians had entered and settled in Palestine. [Blog Editor citation: The Origins of Arab Settlers in the Land of Israel; By Rotem Nimkovsky; MiDA; 5/16/18]

 

Interestingly there is an enormous amount of evidence which contradicts the Palestinian narrative about forceful removal by Zionists. Below are just a selection of articles / essays which run counter to the volley of lies spewed out over decades by Palestinians and their anti-Semitic and intellectually backward supporters.

 

  • Emile Ghoury , Secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Commission in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph Sept. 6 1948 …… ‘The Arab States which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies. have failed to keep their promises to help refugees’

 

  • The Jordanian daily newspaper Falestin Feb. 19 1949 ….. ‘Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees , suffering now from the malign attitude of newspapers and communal leaders, who have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire straits and penniless after they lost their honor? The Arab States and Lebanon amongst them did it’.

 

  • The Beirut Muslim weekly, Kul-Shay , Aug. 19 1951…… ‘The 15th May 1848 arrived…on that day the Mufti of Jerusalem appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead’.

 

  • The Cairo daily Akhbar el Yom, Oct. 2 1963….. ‘For the fight and fall of other villages it is our leaders who are responsible because of their dissemination of rumours exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs….By spreading rumours of Jewish atrocities, killings of women and children etc. they instilled fear and terror in the hearts of the Arabs in Palestine until they fled, leaving their homes and properties’

 

  • The Jordanian daily newspaper Al Urdub April 9 1963 editorial stated – … ‘I could go on and on with this forgotten or deliberately obscured history. But you get the point. There was no Jewish conspiracy to chase Arabs out of their homes in 1948. It never happened. There are instead plenty of historical records showing the Jews pleading with their Arab neighbors to stay and live in peace and harmony. Yet, despite the clear unambiguous words of the Arab observers at the time, history has been successfully rewritten to turn the Jews into the bad guys’.

 

Joseph Farah, Arab historian and journalist – ‘The worlds collective amnesia ‘ Sept. 19 2002 is a masterpiece of investigative detection which far more elegantly and eloquently exposes the Palestinian myth in ‘Myths of the Middle East’.

 

‘There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians – another recent invention , Syrians, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 per cent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one tenth of one per cent of the land mass. But that’s too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what fighting Israel is about today…no matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough’.

 

These historical, recorded articles are evidence enough but what is even more interesting perhaps is the fact that none of the Arab journalists or historians refer to the displaced people as Palestinians. They are called Arabs. The genre ‘Palestinians’ did not exist. The truth is that circa 70 % of Arabs who left in 1948 – and truthful estimates are around 250,000 to 300,000, never saw an Israeli soldier. The Arab States initiated the war and never accepted responsibility despite their enormous wealth, to assimilate their Muslim refugee brothers in largely under populated Arab nations. The Arab public relations machine has been hugely successful in blaming this international tragedy on the Jews and the charade continues to this day. The suffering of the Arab refugees is perpetuated only for political purposes by the Arab States. As at the time of writing it is apparent that this farce is being gradually challenged politically. The Palestinians have been used as pawns to destroy Israel. After WW2 there were some 100 million refugees – all bar the Arab refugees have been successfully integrated and millions of Jews, ethnically cleansed from Arab States have been absorbed into tiny Israel. It is a geo-political and human absurdity to expect Israel to solve a refugee problem it did not create.

 

Now here comes the sweetest part of my essay – almost orgasmic for someone of my political ideology. There exists further historical evidence, reconfirming such articles highlighted above that totally debunks the Palestinian narrative. And it comes not from rabidly obsessed Zionist fanatics but from Arabs, Islamists, and former and reformed enemies of the Jewish State.

 

Abd al-Mahdi, Arab Ambassador [or “A local Arab leader”] before the Peel Commission 1937 … ‘There is no such land as Palestine. It is a term invented by ZIONISTS (capitals intended). There is no Palestine in the Koran. Our land was for hundreds of years part of Syria’.

 

Professor Philip Hitti, Arab historian 1946: ‘There is no such thing as Palestine, absolutely no such thing’.

 

Ahmad Shukan 1956 Arab League Ambassador to the UN – ‘Such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all. This land is nothing but the southern portion of greater Syria’.

 

[Blog Editor: “Ahmad Shukan” has been difficult to locate in various search engines. So here is a similar name from the era speaking of faux-Palestinians – Ahmed Shukari (also spelled Shukeiri among other Arab to English transliterations): – Israpundit – ‘PLO founder, Ahmed Shukari. Already in 1956 he proclaimed from the UN podium, as the Arab League’s ambassador there, “Such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all. This land is nothing but the southern portion of Greater Syria”’. – Think-Israel: HADRIAN’S CURSE –– THE INVENTION OF PALESTINE: ‘All the same, there is nothing like the testimony of the founder of the P.L.O. himself, Ahmed Shukari. Already in 1956 he proclaimed from the podium of the U.N., as the Arab League’s ambassador there, that “such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all. This land is nothing but the southern portion of Greater Syria…”’]

 

Zuhair Mushin [Blog Editor: It’s interesting that Wikipedia entries in various languages differ with English Wikipedia presenting the most positive perspective. The various language entries highlights the difficulty in translating an Arab name to a Western language. Wikipedia: English – Zuheir Mohsen, GoogleTranslate Italian – Zuhayr Muhsin and GoogleTranslate German – Zuhair Muhsin], member of the PLO Executive Council 1967 [Wikiquote & similar at Center for Online Judaic Studies (COJS)]: ‘There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political purposes that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity…yes the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian State is a new tool in the continuing battle against Zionism’.

 

Hafez Assad [Jewish Virtual Library and Tyrants and Dictators of History], Syrian ex-Dictator to the PLO: ‘You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point. There is no such thing as a Palestinian entity or people. There is only Syria.’

 

Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist stated [Myths, Hypotheses and Facts – Similar — NY Sun; Live Leak- Why do Palestinians really want an Arab state inside Israel?]: ‘Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian? We did not mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian. Then all of a sudden we were Palestinian – they removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag. When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out’.

 

Fathi Hmad, Hamas Minister of the Interior and head of National Security on Al Hakma TV, March 23 2012, in an abortive attempt to appeal to Egyptian donors: ‘…every Palestinian in Gaza and throughout Palestine can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen , from anywhere. So where is your affection and mercy? We have blood ties. Personally all my family is Egyptian. We are like that, brothers. Half of the Palestinians are Egyptians the other half Saudis. Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Misr who have roots from Egypt. They may be from Alexandria or Cairo , from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians Arabs Muslims’.

“We all have Arab roots and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots- whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties.

 

 

Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We’re all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri (“Egyptian”). Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

 

Who are the Palestinians?

 

We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian!

 

They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt.

 

We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims.”]

Religiously and historically there is no justification for a Palestinian State.

 

Legally there is no such claim but this is subject to another separate post as it is rather boring and complex.

 

To prove me wrong please give me the names of indigenous Palestinians- not families who from their names originated from other surrounding countries. Or give me the names of any wars or battles Palestinians fought against invaders from time immemorial to 1947. And the names of their leader!!!
