Again for Nice

Islam- Face of Enemy

[I hace a feeling Ari Bussel would not approve of the above image. This is this Blog Editor’s emotion about Islamic terrorism.]


Cataract surgery has placed me a bit behind in reading my email. The result being I am also a bit behind in catching writer submissions.


In this submission Ari Bussel writes about the threat of Islamic terrorism to the USA, Europe and Israel. Bussel rightly examines how Muslim Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are taught from the cradle to grave to hate Jews and destroy Israel AND how the West castigates Israel for their response to this Muslim hatred of Jews.


Bussel’s thoughts are inspired by an email exchange with a Japanese friend who queried him about the Islamic terrorist attack in Nice.

Again for Nice

Dear John,


A family friend from Japan shared with us an e-mail he wrote to a friend in Nice.  I bring this e-mail in its entirety.


[Blog Editor: I performed just a little editing to the correspondence but for the most part the email tone is untouched —


Before end of World 2nd War, anybody in France/Germany or in Algeria were unable to judge who belonged to Nazi or who were only shamming as Nazi…


Then 70 years passed, again terrible thoughts of IS is getting infiltrated into many of EU countries by some portion of immigrated people from middle east, and infiltrated into many of south/east Asian places also.


Now nobody of well-meaning persons are getting unable to judge who are brainwashed IS members, who are infiltrated as IS, or who are nothing concerned among their neighborhood…


It regrets to say to what a new difficult stage we are facing now, how we should judge my neighboring persons or persons enjoy in down towns after every evening as common friends or as such dangerous persons?


And what we are able to act to get a peace again?

Dear Jean-Remi san,



Very sorry, this is only my monologue & private words after drank this evening,


but if you have anything, hope to hear your comment…

Of course OK to be disregarded.


After I sent you a message of sympathy to tragedy in Nice, I just remembered one novel story “La Peste” which I had read often around 50 years ago at my university age, & was written in 1947 by famous French novelist “Albert Camus” what was taken place at Oran city in Algeria.


In such novel, Albert Camus probably regarded that a terrible black death disease Pesto as Nazism. Before end of World 2nd War, anybody in France/Germany or in Algeria were unable to judge who belonged to Nazi or who were only shamming as Nazi…


Then 70 years passed, again terrible thoughts of IS is getting infiltrated into many of EU countries by some portion of immigrated people from middle east, and infiltrated into many of south/east Asian places also.


Now nobody of well-meaning persons are getting unable to judge who are brainwashed IS members, who are infiltrated as IS, or who are nothing concerned among their neighborhood…


It regrets to say to what a new difficult stage we are facing now, how we should judge my neighboring persons or persons enjoy in down towns after every evening as common friends or as such dangerous persons?


And what we are able to act to get a peace again?


Probably you are surprised to read this e-mail what I have never sent before to any of my friends but I was in Nice very often and enjoyed a very beautiful sea view on Promenade des Anglais and I still got excited at Nice tragedy…


My Best Regards,




Have you read that novel?]


Here is my reply:


Your e-mail is the least expected and most thought provoking and insightful writing I have received lately.  Thank you very much for sharing, and for exposing me to Camus’ La Peste.


There will be peace again, but first, we must fight and conclude WWIII, in which midst we are now.


A Global Islamic Caliphate


You refer to IS (Islamic State, in Arabic Daesh), but its ideology is not new, just its methods more widely “appreciated.”


Wahhabism (Saudi Arabi, the most common ideology to be found in “cultural centers” and mosques throughout the USA courtesy of Saudi money) and Muslim Brotherhood (primarily to be found in Egypt and Gaza, but here in the USA shared by the “spokespeople” known as CAIR-the Council on American-Islamic Relations) are not different from Daesh or the Mullahs in Iran.  Each wants to establish a global Islamic caliphate and to subjugate all to its doctrine and way of living.  [I, for one, do not want to live as a Dhimmitude (second class citizen) according to Sharia Law.]


Each slightly “different” version of Islam is just a different flavor of the same, and all are expected to experience the same fate:  convert and become a devout Muslim following the particular manner of Islam being advocated, be a second class citizen (by paying a “protection” tax) or die.  It is true about non-Muslims (non-believers) and about Muslims who do not subscribe to the exact same interpretation of Islam by the particular “flavor of the moment.”


Lately, Daesh has managed to attract followers the world over.  Its methods are gruesome, the exact meaning of “terrorism”:  instilling fear in us.  Murdering en mass, setting people on fire (like the Jordanian pilot inside a metal cage).  Raping and selling to slavery women and children.


Non-Muslims are at Peril


Minorities throughout Arab states are at great peril.  The Yazidis in Iraq.  The Coptic in Egypt.  The Christians throughout Africa.  The Jews in Israel.


Israel has proven to be one safe haven for all.  Minorities are guaranteed the same freedoms as Israelis.  They are respected – as it is a major tenet in the Bible.  For the Muslims, Israel is a problem, for it refuses point blank to go away.  It is the only source of light in an otherwise growing darkness engulfing the world.  It is a refuge where sanity rules.  It is a spring of innovation and goodness.  And – it is a laboratory where the forces of darkness and the cults of death unleash their wares – from homicide bombings to cars plowing at civilians.


In short, Israel is an obstacle in the way of the ever-spreading Islamic forces.  At one point it was Iran, more recently Daesh.  But they all aspire for the same end-result, and to achieve that, Israel must be “wiped off the map of the earth” and the Jews must be exterminated.  (Same doctrine as that of the Nazis.)


WWIII is that of Islam trying to rule the world, except the various versions have not agreed yet among themselves which is the dominant one, which will prevail.  In the meantime, the Islamists have declared “Europe has Fallen!  America is Next!”


A Culture of Death


You mention people who are “brainwashed.”  Once it was believed that the destitute become “martyrs” (or as we call them “terrorists”).  Except, it was established long ago that this is not the case, and there are numerous examples.  I often cite the doctors (MDs) who drove with a car full of explosives into the Glasgow airport.  Not only were they not impoverished, they had taken an oath to protect and save human lives.  None had mattered.  They became part of a death cult.


Brainwashing is what takes place in the “Palestinian” areas.  From age zero, their kids are taught to hate non-Muslims (“Pigs and Apes” we are called – reference to Jews and Christians).  They watch children’s programs and cartoons, video games and music videos that glorify “martyrdom” for the sake of 72 virgins in heaven and to avenge some wrongdoing (the audacity of existing).  They go through summer camps and training camps how to murder, how to use a knife and a gun, how to explode themselves (and add to the explosives contaminated blood, rat poison or sharp metal objects to add to the devastation).  The textbooks in schools teach them hatred.  Classrooms, soccer fields and major intersections and city squares are named after terrorists as are stamps and other collectibles.


A mother swears her son is a good “kid.”  That he ate her amazing cooking and was at home the all night.  It turns out it was all a lie, he went with a friend, butchered a Jewish family – two parents and three of their children, the youngest just an infant – and then went back home to sleep.


They went back home to sleep, and continued to live as if they just executed the most peaceful, most beloved and most admirable act in the world.


When arrested, they knew that their families will be well taken care.  Japanese, European and American aid money is used to pay very generous monthly stipends to their families.  The more people one murders or maims, the higher the stipend.


Stopping the flow of money will not stop the lunacy, but it is absolutely necessary to send a message:  We are not part of this insanity.  But the money keeps flowing, and some of the teachings and indoctrination take place inside UNRWA schools (again, the United Nations playing a major role, exact opposite to the reason it was created).


Moreover, the young terrorists became heroes, their acts exalted, their families worshiped.  They did the right thing!  (Let us forget not that the mother went on TV and vowed the son was at home and would never do something like that – it is “against how he was raised,” it is “against the teachings of Islam” she said.)  There are public celebrations and days of worship and exaltation of such devout and devoted “heroes.”


This is in Israel, but what is effective in Israel is also effective elsewhere.


Except, when it happens in Israel, the world does not call it “terrorism.”  Instead, the world points a blaming finger right at Israel.  This is nothing new, just pure old anti-Semitism.  When it happens days, weeks or months later elsewhere, it is abhorred.  Thus, hundreds of homicide bombings (when a person comes into a crowded location and detonates an explosive belt he or she wears, shouting “Allah-U-Akbar”) in Israel – not a single objection.  When the same happened at a Jordanian (Muslim) wedding, the top Islamic clergy issued Fatwas (edicts) this is contrary to the teachings of Islam (it is, if the victims are Muslims).


When Muslim spokespeople go out to say “We Condemn Terrorism,” they cite some very known “incidents.”  They never include any of the exact same attacks in Israel, or in Israel’s capital – Jerusalem.  There it cannot be terrorism, for Jewish blood is allowed, because Jews deserve what they get.


Exporting Terrorism


Since the first day of October, 2015, to today, Israel has experienced what is called the Third (or Youth) Intifada (Uprising).  Primarily young people (age 13, 17, sometimes younger even) take a knife or scissors and go out to murder Jews – a 13yo, an 86yo, and more.


Others drive into crowds standing at a bus station.  (Does that sound familiar?  Nice was not invented two days ago, rather, the practice was well rehearsed repeatedly in Israel.)


The head of the “Palestinian Authority” calls it a “Symphony of Blood” and calls to quench the thirsty earth.  On official radio, TV and newspapers.  Repeatedly they call to do more of the same.  Glorification of death in this culture or cult of death.


Is there any wonder, then, that the same is then “exported” elsewhere?  It is very difficult to fight a non-conventional war, and Israel has become the laboratory.  This cancer must be eradicated.  We are told it is not “organized,” that individuals are rising up (thus the reason that the Third or Youth Intifada is also called the Individual Intifada.  But this is not the case).


Lessons of WWII


You went back to the Nazi era.  Humanity promised not to forget, to internalize the lessons and that such madness would happen “Never Again!”  Seven decades have passed, and we are experiencing exactly the same.  The last remnants of the Holocaust are still here, some survivors (primarily in their nineties) and child-survivors (like both my parents).


Let us remember (as you had indirectly highlighted) two lessons from the Holocaust and WWII:


First, more Christians died in the hands of Christian in WWII.  The systematic extermination of the Jews – six million murdered, 20% children – paled in comparison to the ten-fold number of Christians that died.


In WWIII, more Muslims will die in the hands of a Muslim [or Muslims].


Thus, anyone following that lesson from long ago must ask:  Why are the Muslims not speaking out?  Why are they not rising to protect themselves, not for our sake, for they too would not want to revert to the 7th Century way of living?


The answer is simple:  Many are afraid.  Some agree with what is taking place (even if a very small percentage, it still translates to many tens of millions of people [Bold text from Editor]). The remainder do not have anyone to follow, so they fall in place as well, lost to the ever increasing feeling of dominance and power.


And to them I suggest to ponder a poem by one Pastor Martin Niemoller: “First they came….”


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

— Fighting from Within


You asked about how does one differentiate the innocent from the culprit.  The answer is simple.  It is not you or I who need to do so.  The Muslim communities must act to reform themselves.  They can identify those within them who are getting ready to perpetrate atrocities, but they close their eyes, they cover their ears.  They refuse to do anything.  And so, the work continues uninterrupted.  And help is always given to those who seek it.


In theory it sounds commonsensical for the Muslim communities to be on the alert, again – for their own sake.  But in practice here in the USA, the Muslim community at large is taught by its assumed leaders (like CAIR and MPAC – Muslim Public Affairs Council) not to cooperate with authorities, to cry foul every time there is an investigation and to point a blaming finger to us, the non-Muslims.  There is even a manual what to do when questioned, for immediately, automatically and by default, their “civil rights” have been attacked.


Even in other matters, such as travel.  We are all subjected to searches at airports – Muslims and non-Muslims alike – except all the terror attacks that used airports or airplanes have been perpetrated by … yes, you guessed it!  We cannot go to the gate if we do not have a ticket.  We must remove our belt and shoes, we must open our computer.  We cannot take any liquids if more than a tiny container.  And the list of restrictions goes on and on.


Everyone is subjected to the same rules, but Muslims complain:  We “target” them.  We accuse them.  We persecute them.  We hate them.


The truth is different, but they prefer to sound the “victim” cry-of-war.


They are the victims and we are at fault.  That has been what we, Americans, have been hearing also from our President for the past seven and a half years.


Tell a lie often enough, and people will start believing it.  So in the USA, there are no “terror” attacks and no “terrorists.”  We only have “work-place violence.”  We are told that “Islam is a peaceful religion” and we are so politically correct that we are made to repeat it ad nauseam.


For Humanity to Prevail


For WWIII to end, Islam – a geopolitical movement (often mistaken to be a monotheistic religion) – must reform itself.  This will have to happen from within, for I – a Jewish person – cannot reform Islam, nor can any other person of any other faith outside Islam.


For WWIII to end, Islam will have to be defeated and crushed, in the same manner that Nazism was crushed allowing for WWII to end. [Bold text from Editor] And a better Germany rose out of the ashes, reminding the entire world that humanity matters.  (Interestingly, the Bible teaches us that this is exactly what God expects from us, to be good human beings, to treat the other as we want to be treated ourselves, to do good and to be kind.)


We, human beings, have a tendency to easily forget and to a practice of not knowing our own history.  Seven decades have passed from the most horrific period we have known in modern times, and here we are repeating the very same mistakes once again.


I am attaching something I wrote recently, “Everything but Terrorism.”  Yesterday there is a continuation, “The Lighthouse of Humanity.”  I will forward the latter as soon as it is published.


Thank you again for a thought-provoking reaction to Nice.

What Me Worry?

antisemitism defined

Do you hate Jews? If you are studious Muslim you might answer of course – it is encoded in the Quran, Hadith and Sira. If you are a Nazi or Neo-Nazi you would probably answer yes, your delusional hero uncle Adolf taught you to hate Jews in his writings.


Are you an American, a Westerner and/or a Christian? Do you hate Jews (Profanity Warning – Pat Condell condemns Jew-hatred)? SHAME ON Y0U if you answer yes.


Are you a Progressive and hate Jews (FrontPageMag & DTN) because Israel exists and those poor non-entity Palestinians have told you they are victims? Then you are a deluded idiot.


Any hatred of a people or religious faith is an evil. From a Christian perspective, hating Jews is just plain ungodly. If you think the Jews are collectively responsible for the Crucifixion of Christ, you should their hand. Without Christ’s death and Resurrection, you to realize we would still be lost to the Fallen nature of Adam that the Resurrected Jesus redeemed us from.


It is wrong to blame Jews for the Crucifixion, that was actually a collaboration Roman leadership (Gentiles) and the Jewish Sanhedrin leadership. Does anyone persecute Italians for being Christ-killers?


Norma Zager wonders out loud if there is an inoculation for hate. Why? Antisemitism is again raising its ugly head among those that should be enlightened to see the idiocy of Jew-hatred in this day and age of the 21st century.

What Me Worry?


By Norma Zager

Sent: 6/26/2016 7:59 PM


“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.” John F. Kennedy


So many years ago, and I purposely choose not to remember, Alfred E. Newman graced the cover of Mad Magazine begging the question, “What Me Worry?”


An icon of sorts, Alfred’s question became a watchword or guide for my generation.  Peace love and rock n’ roll seemed to fit perfectly into the parameters of “What Me Worry?”  And we didn’t, at least not much until we entered adulthood and found ourselves face to face with actual life.


Now it seems to me I feel compelled to raise the question once again, but the worry somehow seems implicit in the question itself, “what me hate?” There is so much hate around us these days; it is almost impossible to escape its ravages or virus-like movement through our lives.


Would one invent a vaccine to eradicate hatred? I actually wonder how many earthlings would choose to sign up for a dose.


And that is my conundrum.


For as I have come face to face with the ugliness of hatred, I now must admit to myself it is a conscious choice and one that is dictated by a willingness to believe lies about those very people we seek to dislike and blame.


As a Jewish person I have faced anti-Semitism numerous times. Whether from gentiles or self-hating Jews, the effects are always nauseating and unsettling, and after a bout with a hater I am left spent and weary as a sickly feeling courses through my veins until I can finally dispel its effects.


The most difficult task coming face to face with anti-Semitism is what to do. Shall I speak up? Shall I defend Israel? Shall I remain mute, retain relationships and betray my true self? What is my responsibility and how far shall I go? Perhaps to even refuse a job as I once did.


Is there a way to make a hater stop hating or a denier accept truth? What is gained by my leaping into the fray and becoming emotionally involved? These are questions only one can answer for oneself.


Do I wish I could remain mute, slough it off and change the subject? Yes, I do. Am I able to do so and not hate myself? No, unfortunately not. So either way I wind up feeling like a ton of ugliness was dumped on my head. I suppose that is a problem that has no answer. Hate does not possess a path for winning on any level.


Yesterday I came face to face with a hater. Oh of course hatred robes itself in intelligence. Academia prides itself on being above the fray. By their sheer acumen they can better discern fact from fiction, the cause from effect and of course who is to blame for the ills of the world. They believe they are right, defenders of the truth, and feel no remorse when pulling out the trite and careworn blame-the-Jews theories from their intellectual toolbox.


And yet laughingly for them it all still comes back to one answer: The Jews are to blame of course.


I should not have been shocked when speaking yesterday with an educator who firmly believes Israel is an occupier and killer of innocent Palestinians and that the problems of the Jewish people could be blamed directly on Israel’s behavior in the Middle East.


And yet I still find it hard to believe that in the wake of all the information available about Israel’s desire to live in peace with her neighbors and terrorist groups like Hamas that attack innocent Israelis on a daily basis, one would have accumulated the necessary knowledge to make an informed decision.


But no, it is still the Jews that are at fault. Or as the anti-Semite asked me yesterday, “Don’t Palestinians have rights? It was their land,” and on and on and on with all the crazy rhetoric that fuels the fires of hatred. Sadly, she believes her assumptions are truth, and being so accomplished intellectually she thus has the right to make this choice.


What I find so amusing is that even after the world has seen what the Arab world is capable of – stonings, killings, murdering homosexuals, cutting off heads, burning people alive and barbaric behavior in the most primitive forms – it still chooses to side with them against the Jewish people.


It is not information haters seek, it is merely a reason to hate, to fuel the fires of their racist rants.


I cannot speak for Muslims, although I know only too well they are suffering terribly for those among them who pay homage to a culture of hatred and evil.  My heart goes out to them, and I hope they as a religion find a way to escape from this dark cloud that has risen above them.


I can however speak as a Jew.  I have seen that in a world filled with evil, a Jewish life brings far less on the open market. Although it seems our Christian brethren have now succumbed to the ravages of evil as well, with few to cry out against their tormentors.


There is no excuse for hatred and racism if one can forego one’s prejudices and accept the facts. I am not saying Israel or the Jewish people are perfect and without flaws; perfection does not exist on this earth and never will, and we are all a little right and a little wrong at times. I am only saying that when faced with a scenario that includes hating evildoers or a Jew, haters, sadly, opt to blame the Jew.


It does not matter how many missiles rain down on Israeli children before they are forced to fight back; it does not matter how many leaflets are dropped by the IDF warning Palestinians to leave their homes and find safety because Israeli jets are coming; it does not matter how many Palestinian leaders hide their weapons in kindergartens or hospitals to rack up scores of victims to serve their PR purposes; it will always be the fault of the Jews.  Because that is the choice the haters make and they will never change.


Winston Churchill said, “The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”


Perhaps it is only in the end the world will finally acknowledge the truth, but I highly doubt the haters will choose to see it even then.


It is clear to me that Friedrich Nietzsche was correct when he wrote, “There are no facts, only interpretations.” I suppose as long as this is the case the haters will hate, the idealistic will defend and the pragmatists will stand aside and let them fight it out.


I often wonder who will win, and that is what truly gives me pause. For it seems more and more each day it is haters 6,000,000+ and defenders of the truth 0.


So I must ask myself once again as I have so many times before, “What Me Worry?”


You bet I do.

Victory at All Costs

In Tolerance Name Importing Intolerance

Yesterday I posted a video that exposes that Muslim refugees are flooding into Europe without appreciation of their non-Muslim hosts violating the laws of the land with rapes, theft and murder and more. Today I’m posting a good follow-up with a great submission by Justin Smith that has the message that if the same kind of Muslims going to Europe come to America expect Islamic terrorism in one form or another.

Victory at All Costs

Collect the Dead


By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 4/2/2016 1:57 PM


“I’m sick of preening celebrities who tell me to ‘PrayForTheWorld’ and celebrate diversity while indiscriminate floods of Muslim refugees across Europe and America corrode the pillars of peace and freedom.” — Michelle Malkin, March 23rd, 2016


Four murdered Americans among the thirty-five victims in Brussels and seventy-one murdered Christians in Lahore, mostly women and children, blown apart over the Easter Weekend, are representative of the true face of Islam and the severe existential security threat Islam and Muslims pose to America, and Americans would be deluding themselves by thinking otherwise. This is a threat that will only be made worse through the delay of common sense action and the immediate halt of Muslim immigration into our country.


Americans cannot place any hopes on the elusive “peaceful” and “moderate” Muslims. While 70% of the followers of traditional Islam have been deemed “moderate” by Leftist politicians and intelligentsia, far too often, the reality has shown us otherwise, and once described “moderates” are found in the ranks of “radicals”, usually after another bloody terrorist attack and too late to do anything but collect the wounded, maimed and dead.


If, as stated by a few U.S. Senators, it is an insult to Muslims to advocate tracking Muslim refugees already here and to halt Muslim immigration for any period of time, then I suggest that Muslims stop murdering Americans. And for those who tell us to view the Muslim graves at Arlington, I tell them, that for each headstone, there are a hundred more Muslims who would happily betray America and see Her destroyed.


Ali Mohammed, top aide to Osama Bin Laden, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1980s from Egypt. He became a U.S. Army sergeant and an instructor at the JFK Special Operations Warfare School at Ft. Bragg. Then Mohammed went on to smuggle suspected terrorists into the U.S. through Vancouver, Canada. And, in his greatest betrayal of this generous America which offered him so much, Mohammed trained El Sayyid Nosair and Mahmud Abuhalima, who took part in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.


Brussels bombers Ibrahim and Khalid Bakraoui‘s plot to force a nuclear scientist to make a dirty nuclear bomb, brings to mind the New Jersey Al Qaeda member Sharif Mobley, currently serving time on terrorism charges. Mobley worked in several nuclear plants in Salem County, NJ and he had passed multiple federal background checks through 2008.


Muslims are the only people committing global wholesale murder in the name of Islam. They are the only people who openly proclaim their desire to kill Jews and Westerners, and Muslims are the only people vowing to conquer the world: These facts are not irrelevant to America’s immigration policy.


If every single Muslim grievance against the West and America were addressed and assuaged today, tomorrow a hundred more would be posited by the leaders of Islam, simply because we exist and are not Muslim. Anyone saying “we cannot afford to alienate” Muslims act as though it’s America’s fault that Muslim’s attack us. Offend the Muslim world or not, Islam will always manufacture one more reason to attack America.


Over the last four decades, Shamim Siddiqqi [An author of a treatise to Islamize West], leader of the Islamic Circle of North America, has advocated subverting our republic by linking Islamist front groups to racial politics. During the 2015 joint conference of the Muslim American Society, an overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the ICNA, Khalilah Sabra, MAS leader, openly called for “revolution”, as she discussed Muslim support for Black Lives Matter. Drawing parallels between the U.S. and the Middle East and events leading to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Arab Spring revolutions, Sabra suggested, “We are the community that staged a revolution across the world; if we can do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?”


Any Muslim calling for the reform of Islam, in the Western sense of the meaning of the word “reform”, is considered a heretic. However, an infinitesimal number of liberal thinking secular Muslims, such as Irshad Manji, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Asra Nomani, are attempting to counter the integral violent doctrines of Islam and reform Islam. But any successes will be next to impossible to achieve, due to Islamic texts and the competing theological hierarchies of Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And compounding the difficulty of their task, Saudi Arabia and Egypt are still exporting the virulent Wahhabi brand of Islam to 2000 mosques across America: No one can reasonably expect Islam to achieve reformation in this lifetime or the next.


Perhaps millions of Muslims are already living peacefully with the rest of the world, the non-Muslims, the Christians, the infidels, as the Progressives and Muslim apologists would have us believe, but on the whole, I have yet to see it anywhere — not even in Jordan where King Abdullah has called for “reform” and yet still allows the persecution of Jordan’s Christian minority to persist. And in the meantime, their “religion of peace” is awash in the blood of Americans, Europeans, Yazidis and Christians and their fellow Muslims.


Where is the historical evidence of a mainstream “moderate” Islam or even Islam “the religion of peace” after Islam’s first ten years?


Isn’t it reasonable for Americans to decide who is allowed into our country? Isn’t it logical to determine that banning the immigration of Muslim “refugees” will prevent many terrorists from entering America too?


Americans have had enough of placing memorial flowers on the graves of their loved ones, who were murdered by Muslims seeking to impose Islam in the name of Allah, and as Progressives and Obama lecture the rest of America on retaining our “American values” it becomes obvious their “values” are a perversion of everything “American”. Our American values are based on Western and Judeo-Christian principles, not Middle Eastern values or oppressive teachings of the Koran, whether Muslims like it or not; and resisting a government utopian policy of open borders and coexistence that allows hundreds of thousands of Muslims to enter America and commit mass murder is not a “hate-crime.” It is our duty to prevent the murder of innocent civilians in America and to defend America and not let Her perish: Here and abroad — We Must Fight or Die.

Yair Lapid and BDS Movement

Yair Lapid


John R. Houk

© December 16, 2015

Yair Lapid is the head of Israel’s political party Yesh Atid. Yesh Atid portrays itself as a centrist party which I’m guessing in Israeli terms means it adopts snippets from both Israel’s Left and Right that are closer to the center rather than the furthest outskirts of each side’s political spectrum.

In America I am a staunch Conservative Christian Right Israel supporting kind of guy. Thus I don’t really have a right to voice my opinion in which Israeli voters must essentially choose for the survival of the heritage of Jews and the Israel. On a political level I fell in love with Benjamin Netanyahu for taking a stand against President Barack Hussein Obama and his cadre of Left Wing Democrats by accepting the GOP invitation to address Congress.

Yair Lapid criticizes Netanyahu for this choice of alienating Obama. Indeed Lapid is bugged by a lot of Netanyahu’s Israeli policies that implies Netanyahu’s acceptance of a Two-State Solution but with the Palestine Authority recognizing Israel as a Jewish State as a non-starter with the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians.

My understanding Lapid essentially believes Israel should – putting it in the American vernacular – screw forcing Palestinians to accept Israel as a Jewish State. Rather Lapid believes Israel should make a concerted effort to normalize relations with Arab nations that at least nominally have the same National Interests as Israel; viz., the Saudi hatred of Shi’ite Iran, the Jordanian discord with ISIS (they would call the Islamic terrorists Daesh) and Egypt’s internal battle with the Muslim Brotherhood which Hamas is a spin-off. Those are just examples from the top of my head. There are probably more geopolitical areas Israel could focus in the Arab world to normalize relations. Lapid believes normalizing with the Arab world would then force the corrupt leaders of the Palestine Authority to accept a Two-State Solution to at least exist as a nation state and still be able to hate Jews.

The irony of Lapid’s current thoughts on a Palestinian State is that Israel needs to build a bigger wall so-to-speak and give Israeli Arabs a choice of accepting the Israel rule of law or be welcomed to leave. The part I am uncertain about is Lapid’s intentions of the Jewish settlements that have made communities in Judea-Samaria on the basis the land is a part of Jewish heritage. Does Lapid intend a forced evacuation of Jews as Sharon’s Israeli government did to Jewish communities in Gaza? Or does he advocate annexing the land the Jewish communities in Judea-Samaria already possess as part of Israel proper?

On a Biblical Christian Zionist level I do not like any Two-State Solution. The Biblical land of Israel is the Jewish heritage not the heritage of Muslim conquerors who came into existence roughly after 630 AD. There has been a Jewish presence in the land of milk and honey due to God Almighty’s Promise made to Abraham. History paints a story of the land possession promised to the Hebrew tribes beginning circa 1300 BC. There were no Arab people or nations in the land of Jewish heritage until Muslim conquest in the about 638 AD. Even though the majority of people in the Roman designated land of Palestina (English – Palestine) were Christians, there still was a remnant Jewish population even after Roman expulsion between 70 AD and 135 AD (See Also HERE and HERE).

The Islamization of Palestine occurred as a result of the Islamic conquest in 640. It was a long process that included immigration of Muslim Arabs, as well as other Muslims, from other regions, as well as conversion to Islam by some of the indigenous Christian, Samaritan and Jewish population of the area. Islam did not become the majority religion of Palestine until at least the 9th century and possibly even as late as the Mamluk era (1250–1516).[citation needed] This occurred simultaneously with acculturation of the locals into Arab identity and the establishment of Arabic as the lingua franca, which eventually became their sole vernacular.[2] (Islamization of Palestine; Wikipedia; this page was last modified on 6 November 2015, at 17:19.)

Islam is no multicultural friend of Jews or Christians. Islam demands unconditional submission or conversion. These Arabs that call themselves Palestinians following the doctrine of Mohammed will destroy Israel is given the chance.

Whether Netanyahu accepting a conditional Two-State Solution based on the acceptance of a Jewish State or a Lapid agenda of a Two-State Solution with complete separation between Israel and Arabs called Palestinians via fostering Arab nation friendship, is irrelevant. At least both Netanyahu and Lapid recognize who their enemy is.

Another enemy of Israel are idiotic Westerners that have bought into the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement against an Israel that has nothing but reclaim the land of their heritage. Israel calls the land Judea-Samaria. Appeasing Westerners call the land the West Bank – the name given by a 1948 occupying Jordanian army called the Arab Legion under the leadership of British Officers. Then there are the outright Israel-haters who call Judea-Samaria occupied territories by Israel’s military.

The BDS Movement is the height of Jew-hatred disguised as an agenda to liberate those poor Palestinians under Israeli despotism. OF COURSE that is a load of Muslim-Palestinian propaganda.

The post below was posted on the Facebook Community called Stop the JNF SA – Exposed and it is by Yair Lapid. It explains the truth that counters BDS lies. Incidentally “JNF SA” stands for Jewish National Fund South Africa. The Facebook community is dedicating to exposing the anti-JNF organization called “Stop the JNF SA.” The Stop the JNF SA organization is actually a Palestinian front organization dedicated to using propaganda to undermine the Jewish State of Israel. The “Stop” organization accuses the JNF of racism and ethnic cleansing of Arabs calling themselves Palestinian. It’s a load of propaganda crap. The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) exposes the “Stop” organization as really a bunch of Jew-hater Green Agenda coalition of Muslims of Leftist Jews that are against Israel.

Yesh Atid activists led by MK Yair Lapid, distributed anti-BDS booklets to Israeli travelers at Ben Gurion Airport. Below is the English translation.



By: The Yesh Atid party


The State of Israel needs you. We are at war.

The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) spreads an unbelievable amount of lies about us, fabricated pictures and fictional witness accounts. The goal is to smear Israel’s name in the world, to isolate us, to turn us into a hated and illegitimate state.

We cannot abandon this field.

Not everyone is an anti-Semite, not everyone is against us; we just need to explain our side of the story.

If we manage this struggle with determination and wisdom, we can win. But we all need to mobilize.

We are Israelis. And when our house is under attack, we stand ready to defend it. It’s in our genes. There is no right or left in this. When facing the outside world, we are united.

You are preparing to travel abroad.

We have prepared a small booklet for you. For every lie that is being spread, we have written the truth. We haven’t invented a thing, all the information is based on facts. With this booklet, you will be able to respond to every claim and push back against the incitement.

In this war – we are all emissaries – Shlichim.

Travel safely, come home safely.

BDS PROPAGANDA: Members of BDS are human rights and peace activists
OUR TRUTH: BDS is an anti-Semitic movement, founded by global Jihadi organizations. Its activity has been recognized as an anti-Semitic hate crime in France and the United States. Those standing behind BDS have discreet connections with Hamas, whose charter calls for the annihilation of the Jews no less than 12 times.
Despite the attempt to portray the movement as non-violent, the BDS movement has never condemned violence directed against Israelis or Jews.


BDS PROPAGANDA: The occupation is the root cause of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
OUR TRUTH: The conflict and Palestinian acts of terror against Jews in Israel started a long time before Israel took control of the territories. Already in the 1940’s, the Palestinian leadership cooperated with the Nazis against the Jews and acts of terror against Israel started long before the territories were conquered in 1967.
If the territories were the problem, how do they explain the fact that in 2005 Israel pulled out of the Gaza Strip to the last meter, and since that time, some 20,000 rockets have rained down upon the Israeli civilian population?


BDS PROPAGANDA: The Jewish People have no rights to a state in the land of Israel
OUR TRUTH: Our historic and national right to the State of Israel is based on a connection going back 3,000 years. This right was recognized by the UN General Assembly on the 29 of November, 1947.
In the world there are 130 countries with a Christian majority, 49 countries with a Muslim majority, three with a Hindu majority and only one Jewish State on a territory that represents 1/800 of the size of the entire Arab world.


BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel doesn’t recognize the rights of the Palestinians to a state and isn’t interested in resolving the conflict
OUR TRUTH: Since the 1930’s the Palestinians have rejected no less than 5 proposals for a territorial compromise. Already in 1947 the Jewish leadership recognized the right of the Arabs to an independent state alongside Israel. The Arab side rejected the proposal and started a war. Twice – in 2000 and 2008 – Israel offered more than 90% of the territory for them to establish a state, and they refused.
In 2005, Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip and left 3,000 greenhouses behind that had been under Jewish ownership. Instead of giving them to the Gazans, Hamas destroyed these greenhouses and invested hundreds of millions of dollars from the aid sent to them from around the world to build tens of terror tunnels and launching sites for missiles that were designed to carry out terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians.


BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is exploiting the Palestinian economy
OUR TRUTH: The Palestinian economy is in a slowdown due to corruption in the Palestinian Authority. There are numerous examples of this, including a report by the European Union that determined that corruption in the Palestinian economy led to the loss of some 2 billion Euros in aid between 2008 and 2012. One example among many: documents that were leaked by the Palestinian Authority proved that corruption still exists. In the summer of 2015, a document was leaked that proved that Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor asked the foreign minister of Bahrain for 4 million dollars to fund a private housing complex for people in the Palestinian Authority.


BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is a racist state
OUR TRUTH: The State of Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and all of its citizens – Jews, Muslims and Christians – enjoy equal rights.
The party that represents Israeli Arabs is the third largest in the Knesset, and is a considerable political force. Israeli law requires a just representation of Israeli Arabs in senior positions in the public sector. Israeli Arabs hold public posts in various government offices, as lawmakers in the Knesset, as officers in the IDF and as judges, including in the Supreme Court.


BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is an apartheid country with a separation fence
OUR TRUTH: The security fence does not create separation based on ethnicity or religion, rather it is meant only to prevent terrorists from entering Israel. It is an existential need and every country would act the same to protect its citizens, in every sector. Its purpose is only security related.
A year after the fence was built, there was a 30% reduction in the number of terrorist attacks and the number of Israelis killed was reduced by 90%. On the day that Palestinian terror ceases, the fence will come down.


BDS PROPAGANDA: The movement aims to establish a Palestinian state alongside that of the State of Israel
OUR TRUTH: The BDS movement doesn’t recognize the right of the State of Israel to exist.
The boycott movement talks about one state between the Jordan and the Sea – a code name for the disappearance of all the Jews from Israel and not just from the West Bank.
Omar Barghouti, one of the movement’s founders, said: “The idea of two states was void from the start. The ending of Israeli control in the territories is but the first stage on the road to fulfilling the vision of the dismantling of Israel.” (Barghouti is an Israeli Arab who lives in Acre, who benefits from all that Israel has to offer. The fact that he walks around freely points to the power of the only democracy in the Middle East.)
The BDS movement is not interested in a Palestinian State alongside Israel, rather it negates the very existence of Israel. It hides this from its naïve supporters in the West.


BDS PROPAGANDA: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the root cause of the problem of terror around the world
OUR TRUTH: Since the establishment of the State of Israel, 67 years ago, 12 million Muslims have already been killed around the Arab world by other Muslims in the framework of religious conflicts that have nothing to do with Israel. The attempt to blame the Jews is a new form of old anti-Semitism in which the Jews are blamed for everything. A solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is desirable, and most Israelis support it, but it won’t solve the Sunni-Shia conflict, it won’t destroy ISIS, it won’t stop Iran from funding terror. The attempt to blame Israel for terror just gives excuses to the terrorists and helps promote terrorism.

Answering John Kerry

Intro to Glick’s ‘Answering John Kerry’

Edited by John R. Houk


Caroline Glick posted an essay about John Kerry’s speech at the Brooking Institute’s Saban Forum. This is the same forum that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu video streamed a speech to the Saban Forum from Jerusalem. To comprehend just how idiotic Secretary of State John Kerry is (and by extension President Barack Hussein Obama), let me share some excerpts from Netanyahu’s speech that addresses Islamic terrorism internationally and the terrorism of Arabs calling themselves Palestinians who refuse to accept the existence of the Jewish State of Israel:

I want to thank my friend Haim for giving me the opportunity to address you. This comes at a time when the United States has experienced a terrible and savage attack in San Bernardino, and I wish to offer the condolences of the people of Israel to the families, the aggrieved families, and of course send our wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded. [Blog Editor: a sentiment rarely shared from Obama and Kerry to Israeli-Jewish victims of Palestinian Islamic terrorism.]

And these values are what makes the bond between Israel and the United States, the American people and the people of Israel, so strong. It’s that identity of values, those very values that are under such fierce attack today. …

Insofar as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is concerned, I think there is another misunderstanding. People have long said that the core of this conflict is the acquisition of territories by Israel in the 1967 War. That’s an issue that needs to be addressed in any peace process, as is the question of settlements, but it’s not the core of the conflict. In Gaza, nothing changed. In fact, instead of getting peace, we gave territory and got 15,000 rockets on our heads. We took out all the settlements; we disinterred people from their graves; and did we get peace? No. We got the worst terror possible.

… Why has this conflict not been resolved for a hundred years? Why has it not been resolved after successive Israeli prime ministers, six in fact after the Oslo Agreement, have offered to make peace, have offered the Palestinians the possibility of building a state next to Israel – it’s because the Palestinians have not yet been willing to cross that conceptual bridge, that emotional bridge, of giving up the dream not of a state next to Israel, but a state instead of Israel.

And that’s why they persistently refuse – not only Hamas in Gaza, but the PA – they consistently refuse to accept that in a final peace settlement, they will recognize the Jewish state, they will recognize a nation-state for the Jewish people. They ask that we recognize a nation-state for the Palestinian people, but refuse to accord that same right to us. I have said and I continue to say it, that ultimately the only workable solution is not a unitary state, but a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state. That’s the solution. But the Palestinians have to recognize the Jewish state and they persistently refuse to do so. They refuse to recognize a nation-state for the Jewish people in any boundary. That was and remains the core of the conflict. Not this or that gesture or the absence of this or that gesture, but the inability or unwillingness of the Palestinian leadership to make the leap.

You got a hint of that the other day when Abu Mazen spoke about the “occupation of Palestinian lands for the last 67 years”. Did you hear that? Occupation of Palestinian lands? For the last 67 years? Sixty-seven years ago was 1948. That’s when the State of Israel was established. Does Abu Mazen mean that Tel Aviv is occupied Palestinian territory? Of Haifa? Or Beer Sheba? He refuses to fess up to his people and say it’s over, from their point of view what they say are the borders they wish, the final borders they wish. They refuse to recognize that they will have no more claim on the territory of the Jewish state, that they will not try in any way to flood it with the descendants of refugees. After all, we in Israel took in an equal and even larger number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands. You should READ the ENTIRE Speech (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Remarks to the Saban Forum; By PM Benjamin Netanyahu; Release by Israel GPO posted at SlantRight 2.0; posted 12/7/15)

Now as you read Glick’s essay you will notice that Secretary Kerry acts like he is completely deaf and blind about the intentions of the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians to not only establish a state out of some territory of Jewish heritage but also the complete destruction of Israel to be replaced by an Arab State. In case you haven’t been paying attention to what ISIS is doing to the Christians that have lived in Syria and Iraq that means a brutal genocide against the Jews of Israel.

Answering John Kerry

By Caroline Glick

December 11th, 2015

On Saturday, US Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech before the Brookings Institute’s Saban Forum. Kerry focused on the Palestinian conflict with Israel and sought to draw a distinction between the two-state policy model, which he supports, and the one-state policy model, which he rejects.

To justify his rejection of a policy based on Israeli sovereignty over areas beyond the 1949 armistice lines, Kerry raised a series of questions about what a one-state policy would look like.

I answered all of his questions, as well as many others, in great detail in my book The Israeli Solution: A One- State Plan for Peace in the Middle East. I will do so again here, albeit with the requisite brevity.

But before discussing the specific questions Kerry raised with regard to the one-state model, it is important to discuss the nature of the policies Kerry described in his speech.

Kerry argued Israel should deny civil and property rights to Jews beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and ignore the building and planning laws of both Israel and the military government in Judea and Samaria in order to allow unrestricted Arab construction in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

Such steps, he argued, will advance the cause of peace because they will pave the way for an Israeli withdrawal from the vast majority of these areas. Such a withdrawal in turn will bring about the desired two-state solution.

Since the two-state solution is supported by the whole world, Kerry argued that once Israel withdraws from the areas, it will gain the support of the world, peace with its Arab neighbors as well as the Palestinians, and become more prosperous and happy than it is today. It will also secure its democracy.

On the other hand, Kerry argued, if Israel respects the civil and property rights of Jews and continues to enforce the law toward Arabs as well as Jews, and if it eventually applies its laws to any or all of Judea and Samaria, Israel will enter a state of perpetual war with the Palestinians and the wider Arab world. Israel will cease to be a democracy. Israel will be impoverished.

Israel will be isolated internationally even more than it is today.

If Kerry’s options were real options, then Israel would have a clear and easy choice, just as he argues it has.

But unfortunately, they aren’t real options. They are fantasies.

Today Israel has three options. As Kerry advocates, it can withdraw from Judea and Samaria and partition Jerusalem. But if it does so, there is no reason to believe that the outcome will be a Palestinian state, let alone peace.

Rather, it is far more likely that an Israeli withdrawal will lead to the establishment of a second independent Palestinian enclave that the Palestinians and the international community will insist is still under occupation, just as the Palestinians and the international community insist that Gaza remains under Israeli occupation 10 years after Israel vacated the Gaza Strip entirely.

Without Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, Israel will become a strategic basket case in an increasingly chaotic region. It will invite aggression from the Palestinians and from the east that it will be hard pressed to defend against.

Just as Israel is condemned for every action it has taken to defend against Palestinian aggression from Gaza, so it will be condemned for the actions it will be forced to take to defend itself from Palestinian aggression in Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem and beyond.

In other words, the so-called “two-state solution” is a recipe for war and expanded international isolation for the Jewish state.

The second option for Israel is to maintain the status quo. Today, Israel shares governing power in Judea and Samaria with the PLO. Sometimes the PLO cooperates with Israeli security forces, and sometimes it cooperates with terrorist groups.

The PLO rejects Israel’s right to exist. It uses every available platform to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and wage economic and political war against the Jewish state.

The advantage of the status quo is that under it, Israel has security control over Judea and Samaria. Consequently, it is able to prevent Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem from becoming strategically indistinguishable from Gaza, where Hamas is now openly collaborating with Islamic State forces in Sinai.

Israel’s third option is to apply its laws over all or parts of Judea and Samaria. The first benefit of this option is that it maintains Israel’s ability to defend itself against security threats emanating from the Palestinians and from the east.

Beyond that, under Israeli law, the civil rights of Palestinians and Jews in Judea and Samaria will be vastly improved. Israel’s liberal legal code is superior to both the military code governing the Jews and the Palestinian Authority’s law of the jackboot which governs the Palestinians.

Whereas the status quo invites and engenders politicization of Israel’s military commanders who serve as the governing authorities of the areas, the third option would end the politicization of the IDF. Generals would take a backseat to elected leaders and government ministries. Police would be responsible for law enforcement. Rather than deploy regular and reserve units to dispel rioters, police, who are better trained for such events, would be judiciously deployed in areas where they are most needed. The IDF’s operations would be limited to counterterrorism.

None of Israel’s actual three options will necessarily enhance its international standing. This is the case because, as we have seen, Israel’s international standing has little to do with anything Israel does.

But then again, by exhibiting strength, and forcefully asserting its rights, Israel may find itself winning the respect of some foreign governments that currently view it is weak and open to blackmail.

This brings us to Kerry’s questions about a one-state model.

Kerry asked, “How does Israel possibly maintain its character as a Jewish and democratic state when from the river to the sea there would not even be a Jewish majority?” The answer is easily. Israel will retain its strong Jewish majority, and its commitment to democracy, after it applies its laws to Judea and Samaria.

Kerry asked, “Would millions of Palestinians be given the basic rights of Israeli citizens including the right to vote, or would they be relegated to a permanent underclass?” The answer is yes, they would be given the basic rights of Israeli citizens, including the right to vote, and no, they would not be relegated to a permanent underclass.

Kerry asked, “Would the Israelis and Palestinians living in such close quarters have segregated roads and transportation systems with different laws applying in the Palestinian enclaves?” The answer is, no.

Kerry asked, “Would anyone really believe they were being treated equally?” The answer is that, as we have seen repeatedly, no matter what Israel does, and no matter what the Palestinians do, people like Kerry will always claim that Israel is mistreating the Palestinians.

Kerry asked, “What would the international response be to that, my friends, or to a decision by Israel to unilaterally annex large portions of the West Bank?” The answer, again, is that the international response to such a move would be about the same as the international response to the continuation of the status quo or to an Israel withdrawal. To wit, the response will be hostile to Israel.

Kerry asked, “How could Israel ever have true peace with its neighbors, as the Arab Peace Initiative promises and as every Arab leader I have met with in the last year reinforces to me as recently as in the last month that they are prepared to do?” The answer is that Israel can have true peace with the Arab world when the Arab world accepts the legitimacy and permanence of the Jewish state.

Kerry asked, “How will [Arab states make peace]… if there is no chance for a two-state solution?” The answer is that they will make peace when they decide they want peace and they rid their societies of Jew hatred.

Kerry asked, “How will the Arab street in today’s world let… [the two-state solution] go by?” The answer is that the Arab street doesn’t believe in the “two-state solution.” The Arab street wants the dissolution of Israel.

Finally, Kerry asked, “And wouldn’t Israel risk being in perpetual conflict with millions of Palestinian living in the middle of a state?” The answer is that Israel is at risk of perpetual conflict with the Palestinians and the Arab world as a whole for as long as the Arabs hate Jews. The millions of Palestinians living within Israel’s borders constitute a far smaller strategic danger to Israel than the millions of Jew-hating Arabs, who have terrorist armies, perched on its international borders.

At the outset of his remarks, Kerry explained that as far as US Middle East policy is concerned, “Our goal, our strategy is to help ensure that the builders and the healers throughout the region have the chance that they need to accomplish their tasks.”

Sadly, this is neither a goal nor a strategy. It is the sort of platitude you’re likely to find inside a Chinese fortune cookie.

If Kerry is interested in an actual strategy, he can fork out 20 bucks and buy my book.

‘There is one slight complication, you say. What about all the Israeli Arabs, full citizens of Israel? Should they be excluded from the workforce too? Also, they have unrestricted movement. Should that be taken away somehow from them?

Those who advocate change answer: If the message for those who want to enter Israel to harm Israelis is “Stay Out,” the message for Israeli Arabs should be “Make Up Your Mind. You are either full citizens or you wish destroy to your country.”’ – Ari Bussel

“The whole day you are in front of the screen, go out, spend some time with other children!”

Ari Bussel has a message that certainly global Leftists and many American Conservatives might find problematic. Ari’s theme is one of segregation between Jews and violent Jew-hating Muslims. Ari addresses Muslims living in stolen Jewish land called the occupied West Bank by Westerners and Judea and Samaria by understanding Jewish Israelis.

Contrary to Leftists and 1st Amendment Americans, I absolutely concur with Ari Bussel. My sentiment in America, if you want to live here than abide by the U.S. Constitution and our American heritage OR leave or be expelled. Thus Jewish citizens of Israel should have the same self-preservation sentiments toward Jew-hating Muslims whether they are Israeli citizens or work non-Israeli Arab Muslims working in Israel yet seeking the Jewish State’s destruction or the murder of all Jews.

Shifting Gear

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 11/28/2015 11:44 PM

According to many, Israel must shift gears, but she has not yet internalized the urgency of her dilemma.

With almost daily attacks against her citizens, in cities throughout Israel, the efforts by the security forces to thwart the violence are not sufficiently successful.

A great deal goes into this endeavor, but Israel has not found an effective enough deterrent against a brainwashed generation, one whose only passion in life is to become martyrs and whose parents dream of nothing else than the children they groomed for this specific task to achieve eternal glory by shedding Jewish blood.

“When I am older, I want to murder Jews!”

“To murder Jews is not a problem to arrange.

But being older, I would not really count.”

Here are some of the steps suggested by those who see a policy shift as necessary:

(a) Immediate cessation of employment of Arabs and actionable steps against those employers who employ them illegally.

(b) Restriction of free movement in Judea and Samaria until calm is restored.

(c) Sending a clear and unequivocal message to Israeli Arabs that it is time to decide if their future lies as citizens of the Jewish state or as members of another country.

Presented with the above points, one is astonished to see the similarities between Israel’s dilemmas and future course of action and what is taking place right now in France and elsewhere in Europe. Yet there such measures are a necessity no one questions, while in Israel anyone daring to think about them is immediately labeled a “hardliner” and worse.

Let us examine these proposed measures.

Arabs from “Palestinian Authority territories” should not be allowed to work in Israel. It is not a question of “collective punishment,” perhaps just basic common sense.

Tens of thousands Muslim Arabs are permitted to enter Israel every day to work. Some are issued permits that allow them to sleep in Israel, but most have to return to their homes every day. All such permits should be revoked.

It was previously presumed that males in their 30s, married with children, who earn twice or more for daily work in Israel, would not engage in terror. This has been used as a guideline for issuing permits and most recently proven a fallacy in this Intifada.

Apparently, what the West considers “logical” does not apply in this neighborhood, and conversely what is permissible and expected here (e.g. slashing a human being’s throat, murdering parents alongside their very young children or kidnapping and murdering youth because they are Jewish) is utterly incomprehensible in the West.

To stop employing Muslim Arabs, how does one know they are Muslim and not Christian? Simply – those coming from “Palestinian Authority territories” are Muslim. Most Christians have been driven out of there, or fled in fear of their life.

To those who call themselves “Palestinians,” much like ISIS, the land must be clean of any “filth” (their term for Jews and Christians and other non-believers), and they have been most effective in achieving this goal. While we consider a 13 or 16 year-old boy or girl innocent and incapable of any wrongdoing, in the employ of the “Palestinian” society, they have become instruments of death and weapons of terror, and their sole aspiration and existence hinges upon spilling Jewish blood.

At school, there are classrooms named after their friends who became Shahids (martyrs). Sport fields are also named after them. At city squares, there are monuments glorifying their achievements. On TV, radio and the internet, songs and video clips focus on their amazing deeds. The politicians repeatedly urge duplication of their heroic actions and provide the justification for carrying them out. In short, the devil’s army looks to the West as innocent children and blameless youth, when in fact, it is weaponized and ready to strike.

An equal or greater number of Muslim “Palestinians” enter Israel without said permits. To fight this situation, each Israeli employer caught employing Arab workers (who are not Israeli citizens) should be fined to such an extent that it will serve as a deterrent to any and all employers who think that is the way to go. In Israel, incidentally, “teaching via one’s pocketbook” works tremendously well. All that is required is intensive enforcement.

Furthermore, say those who are determined to eradicate the current wave of terror, additional steps are necessary. Not only work permits should be rescinded. Movement of Arabs in areas not specifically under “Palestinian Authority” rule should be prohibited. The message should be clear: As long as your purpose is to murder us, you are not welcome in our midst.

There used to be checkpoints, the vast majority of which has been removed in recent years. Except, the few remaining checkpoints do little to prevent the new terror attacks; on the contrary, they invite terrorist to carry out their deeds right then and there.

Free movement has resulted in inflicting blood terror everywhere. All that one requires is a knife, scissors or another sharp object or a vehicle (passenger car, bus, van, tractor). Just aim and hit a group of pedestrians. Jewish children at a bus stop? What a tasty, juicy target. And so on. Free movement on Israeli roads means the ability to reach Israelis and hit them in their soft belly – murdering innocent children, women, the elderly or anyone else one encounters.

There is a physical barrier that has prevented terrorism and has nullified the effectiveness of the Second Intifada. It is made of many segments – wall, fence, the freeway or a hill, i.e. geographic and topographic barriers. This separation barrier must be reinforced, to ensure that those who want to harm Israel be prevented from entering Israel and endangering her citizens.

There is one slight complication, you say. What about all the Israeli Arabs, full citizens of Israel? Should they be excluded from the workforce too? Also, they have unrestricted movement. Should that be taken away somehow from them?

Those who advocate change answer: If the message for those who want to enter Israel to harm Israelis is “Stay Out,” the message for Israeli Arabs should be “Make Up Your Mind. You are either full citizens or you wish destroy to your country.”

For decades, ever since her inception as a modern country, Israel has treated her Arabs (Christian or Muslim) and other minorities as full citizens of the Jewish state. She has done so with only one exception – Arab citizens do not serve in the military (interestingly, other minorities do serve, including the Druze, Bedouin, Circassian). Without any debt to society, they enjoy full rights and are completely integrated.

For instance, if one looks at any road sign in Israel, it is in three languages – Hebrew, Arabic and English. To those requiring more “substantive” evidence, Arabs serve on the Supreme Court, in the Parliament as full-fledged members, as judges, teachers, poets, movie producers and directors, doctors, nurses, professors, etc.

There are “mixed” cities throughout Israel, from Jerusalem, Nazareth, Acre, Jaffe (part of Tel Aviv major metropolitan), Lod, Haifa and others. Jews and Arabs live together, or side by side, their society completely integrated.

Unfortunately, some have shown how ungrateful one can be, spitting into the well from which they drink, draining Jewish blood into it (and if they could, they would contaminate it with poison).

As Israeli Arabs and their leadership in the Israeli parliament (holding 13 out of 120 seats) continue their quest for separation from Israel, prefer to be called “Palestinians,” encourage and participate in the current terror intifada and act as a Fifth Column within Israel proper, Israelis (Jews) have chosen to stay away from Arab businesses.

Etched into the collective memory is one of the first terrorist attacks that happened in the Old City in Jerusalem at the beginning of the current Blood Intifada.

A couple with their very young son was walking and a Muslim Arab terrorist started stabbing them. The wife, with a knife still in her shoulder, managed to grab the child and run, pleading to no avail with the other Arab shopkeepers to help her and her son, to provide a shelter from a madman. At the same time, the terrorist was stabbing her husband repeatedly, to death.

One Jerusalemite Arab spat at her. Another wished her death. A third kicked her. A fourth cursed her. Another stood with a coke can and enjoyed the scene, as if marveling at a TV program.

If a family cannot walk safely in Israel’s capital city, at the holiest place in the world for the two oldest monotheistic religions in the entire region, the situation warrants attention. The status quo means freedom to worship as one wishes but not on account and to the exclusion of the other.

The Arabs refuse to recognize the right of anyone else to exist and worship, and they are determined to change the status quo by spilling blood and spreading terror. They have done so successfully in the past, driving away the Christians from Lebanon and Bethlehem, and they want to drive the Jews from Israel. It is a long held dream, as long as the modern State of Israel, “to throw the Jews to the Sea.”

The “Palestinians” and their ISIS cohorts use the same intimidation tactics, and those work. Except Israelis are a stubborn people. If nothing else, those devout Muslims should at least remember reading once, somewhere, that the Jews are a very stubborn people indeed. They can find multiple references to that in the Bible; alas they only recognize the Judeo-Christian Bible for the benefit of the West eager to know that Islam is an offshoot of its own religious cradle.

So despite the mounting death toll, Israelis’ determination only intensifies. Thus, a standstill is reached. On the one side those ISIS-like “Palestinians,” on the other side those “most-stubborn” Israelis.

Change advocates point out Arab leadership has not come out against the daily murders. Quite on the contrary, the society at large encourages and supports the terror unleashed on Israel. Its leaders excuse, justify and glorify what is taking place. There was one exception: The Arab mayor of Nazareth in an outburst against the Arab MKs (Members of the Knesset) said the terror unleashed is hurting his city, as Israelis stopped buying and dining there.

Many say this is exactly what should take place: avoid Arab-owned businesses. Stay away from Jewish-owned businesses that employ Arabs. Then, and only then, they might wake up and understand that this Intifada is bad for business, their business.

For anyone who is already on the edge of their seats ready to protest such horrible ideas by “hardliner advocates” (they are only “hardliners” if they are Israel-proponents) ready to use a plethora of names (starting with Islamophobes and Extremists), just ask yourselves if that is not exactly what you strive for when you promote “two states for two people, a Jewish and a Muslim state, side by side?”

First, complete separation. Then, if normalcy can be achieved and safety and security maintained, a more open co-existence can be tried. But at the moment, those who do not like Israel, those who prefer not to be called Israelis and those who act to bring Israel’s downfall should leave or stay out. They are not welcome in Israel. This message now being sent by some should be clear, its pitch noticeable to all. When the message is voiced by one and all, the world might start taking notice. Until then, it is an incoherent gibberish.

Alas, Arab Israelis do not want to leave. They tell us explicitly it is “their” country, they are the landlords and Jews must return to Europe (most of them forget they came from Egypt or Saudi Arabia less than a century ago to find employment from the Zionists, now claim Lordship). Israeli Arabs want to stay, because they know the best and safest place for them is Israel. There is no better place for a Muslim Arab then in Israel proper. Except, they need to make a choice they refuse to make.

Israeli Arabs need to decide if they prefer to remain Israeli citizens or if they want to see the erasure of the Jewish state from existence. Indecision is unacceptable, for Israelis are determined to remain in their ancient homeland.

Remaining in oblivion is no longer an option, for the situation, like a cancer that has spread, has reached a tipping point where action is required if the body is to survive.

Anyone can see the Muslim Arabs, by their own actions, are bringing hard times to their people, since those in Israel may start feeling the integration crumpling. Those in “Palestine” will understand that Jews, who were willing to co-exist, employ them and live side-by-side, are now—out of fear of their lives—no longer willing to do so.

An unintended consequence of Israeli deaths – sacrificed by Muslim terrorists on the altar of Death-to-the-Filthy-Jews – is to bring suffering to Muslims as well. Except, it is becoming more and more evident, the latter do not care. For them, the suffering is a small price to pay. The more Jewish blood that is spilled and the greater the fear in the hearts of the Israelis, the greater is their achievement.

If we internalize this, we then know better how to fight. The Muslim Arabs have raised and trained a generation for one thing only: so it can be unleashed, wave after wave, as cheap and easily replaceable human killing machines. All the Muslim Arabs need to do is send one to two a day, or three to five. They have hundreds of thousands standing at ready to do their bidding, to achieve eternal glory for their families and themselves.

Are these Muslim Arabs who call themselves “Palestinians” different from their brethren of the Islamic State? It seems to many, the similarities are striking. The more blood they shed, the greater their deed. The more gruesome their actions, the more fear they spread. Both have unlimited resources; the latter from conquering oil fields, taking over banks and businesses and looting artworks and other treasures and the former from a non-stop flow of funding from the USA and Europe.

It is important to note that Europe and the USA are financing those who carved themselves a state out of the Body Israel. They are active participants in Israel’s fate, neglecting the reality that what works against Israel is then immediately exported to the European capitals and later to the USA.

For those still in doubt, try to remember the Friday attacks in Paris in November 2015 that left 130 dead.

Israel needs to take extreme measures, and these do not sit well with the open and all-inclusive society Israel has created. But, say those who want change, if Israel does not take these steps now, she will continue to pay the price in blood.

Winter 2014:

Me: “Ok, Mom, I am going out.”

Mom: “Take a coat, it is cold outside.”

Winter 2015:

Me: “Ok, Mom, I am going out.”

Mom: “Take a knife. It is dangerous outside.”

First, the Muslim Arabs threw rocks. Then they threw Molotov Cocktails. Then they used knives. From knives they graduated to live weapons. And from there, they returned to the tested old methods of missiles and bombs. To step up, rather than using regular bombs from the manufacturing facilities in Gaza and Iran, all that one should do is use dirty bombs.

To my European and American readers – we are repeatedly warned to remember what is happening in Israel will soon come to a theater nearby. In Paris, they shot one concertgoer after the next, in sequence, void of any compassion and with utter determination and joy, and only stopped to reload their guns.

If the steps suggested may not be to our taste, we are told to consider, what would we do if the theater were right in our neighborhood, city or country? The steps proposed, insist the presenters, are nothing compared to what the French or the authorities in Belgium or other countries have implemented once attacked.

Alas, proponents for change say Israel has always been held to a different standard by the world than it holds itself. Since she is blamed and maligned any way, at least she will manage to better protect her citizens and restore normalcy by such a complete separation.

Muslim Political Cartoon: Caricature posted by the Palestinian Shehab agency and also drawn by Yaseen, shows a smiling cartoon knife next to the text, “Good morning, Palestine” in Arabic. The blade of the knife forms the Palestinian flag, with the red portion made by blood. Behind the cheerful weapon is an Israeli flag covered in blood. Both of the cartoons were eventually removed from Twitter and Facebook. –Jerusalem Post 1/21/15

I became interested in this Facebook comment because it paints a picture of the horror of Jew-hatred in Israel. The context of the thoughts in this post is in the links provided by Jonathan Ginsberg. Continue your education on the barbarians that have embraced the Islamic theopolitical ideology.

1. Why are Palestinians trying to kill Jews?

2. Why are the UN, Obama, Kerry blaming Israel and/or unwilling to state clearly that Palestinians should stop stabbing Jews?

3. Why does the media always take the sides of barbarian Muslims?


1. Why are Palestinians trying to kill Jews?

Answer: that is what many Muslims do. As one Arab journalist asks: ‘WHAT GOD allows for CHILDREN to go out and MURDER innocent people?!?’ – Arab journalist CONDEMNS violence in Israel; Right Scoop; 10/17/15 3:50 PM

When is the last time you went to church/synagogue and the preacher was giving lessons on how to properly stab a Muslim? Here is an imam urging them on to stab Jews in the streets: Watch: Knife In Hand, Gaza Imam Calls on Muslims to Stab Jews; INN; 10/11/15 1:42 PM

MEMRI VIDEO: Rafah Cleric Brandishes Knife in Friday Sermon, Calls on Palestinians to Stab Jews


This is a barbaric, maniacal religion. It has been from day 1 when Mohammed slaughtered all his Jewish neighbors who had sheltered him. 590 million killed by Muslims over the centuries. That is why Egypt’s leader urged his Imam’s for a reformation within Islam. Obama’s biggest lie? 99% of Muslims want what we want. By poll, 30% USA Muslims support violent jihad: Islam: Cannibalism, pedophilia, bestiality, slavery, rape, violent jihadism, designs of genocide. corruption; Strong and Resolute; 10/4/15

They only stop temporarily when they don’t think they’ll succeed. Palestinians were established by Muslims for the sole purpose of weakening Israel. They have 0 history: Israel belongs to the Jews. Genocidal, barbaric Palestinians have no claim. they want to kill Jews and steal the land; Strong and Resolute; 9/15/15

They have no interest in living peacefully next to Israel. They are committed to killing Jews and destroying Israel. Period. That is what they teach their kindergarteners. –Ibid.

There is no “OCCUPATION”. The land belongs to the Jews legally. Overwhelmingly the Arabs living there have 0 ties to the area. Why is islam uniquely violent? Why, more than the other 2 Abrahamic faiths, is Islam uniquely violent in history? Strong and Resolute; 10/12/15

2. Why are the UN, Obama, Kerry blaming Israel and/or unwilling to state clearly that Palestinians should stop stabbing Jews? Because #Jewishlivesdontmatter to the world. Never have. The world’s left, including USA’s Democrats, couldn’t care less about dead Jews: WHY THE GLOBAL LEFT DOESN’T CARE ABOUT DEAD JEWS; Breitbart; 10/12/15

In his answer on the Palestinian organized campaign to murder Jews in Israel, fueled by both Hamas and Abbas, Obama once again can’t bring himself to just condemn killing of Jews and Islamic terror, but WHY? Only one plausible answer. Obama is a pro-Islamic jihadist. Islamic jihadist advocacy 200+ examples of Obama support for radical Islamic jihad: Obama is a jihadist. Hundreds of examples. Democrats support him; Strong and Resolute; 10/30/15

3. The leftist MEDIA (most) will blame Israel first no matter what she does to defend Jewish lives, Arabs are stabbing Jews each day and Israel is at fault? The left/media/ constantly shows how they detest Israel, the only Democracy in the Middle East: Obama Admin Accuses Israel of Terrorism As More Jews Murdered; Pamela Geller; 10/14/15

The left will always find excuses or whitewash barbarian monsters in Islam or the left: Here are examples of just how deranged and delusional Democrats are; Strong and Resolute; 10/15/15

Palestinian Human Rights Activist: Media ‘Full of Antisemitism, Hatred for Israel’; the algemeiner; 11/3/15 3:58 PM

Commentary: “The aftermath of Obama’s presidency and Hillary’s run as Secretary of State will be one in which American power and prestige fall to its lowest point since Jimmy Carter. U.S. allies are isolated and weakened while its foes such as Iran and Russia are embarked on the sort of adventurism not seen since the 1970s. But the president is right about one thing. He has changed the world. Just not in the way he or his adoring fans ever dreamed it would happen.

Obama is a jihadist. Hundreds of examples. Democrats support him.
