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

“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.

HOW TO FIGHT THE BDS LIES

By: The Yesh Atid party

INTRODUCTION BY MK YAIR LAPID

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

12/13/15

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

CarolineGlick.com

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

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.

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

http://www.memritv.org/embedded_player/index.php?clip_id=5098

 

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.

Intro to: NETANYAHU BOMBSHELL …

Intro by John R. Houk

Posted 11/2/15

In conjunction with the post “Genocidal Jew-Hater Amin al-Husseini,” I found an email notification in my Gmail account I wish I would have read earlier. The email was sent on October 27 from Historical and Investigative Research (HIR) and was in response Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech placing the blame for the Holocaust on then Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini inspiring Adolf Hitler.

Unsurprisingly in the Antisemitic climate so pervasive in the world today, Netanyahu has received irascible hostility for his thoughts. By the way in case you have had your head in the sand, Netanyahu’s thoughts on Arab-Muslim Jew-hatred are the result of the latest round of attacks by Arabs who call themselves Palestinians against Israeli Jews with knives. The knife attacks were first incited by PA President Mahmoud Abbas with Hamas having no problem in joining in the indiscriminate targeting of Jewish men, women, and children, young and old.

The HIR article linked to in the email was posted on October 23 right the time of Netanyahu’s speech to the 37th Zionist Congress in Jerusalem. Here is the HIR teaser in the email that then links to the October 23 article:

Photo: May 17, 1947 – Other Arab States Support Iraq Revolt

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently stated that the father of the Palestinian movement, Hajj Amin al Husseini, convinced the Nazis to exterminate the European Jews. Here is a brief summary of what happened, published by the Jerusalem Post on 21 October 2015:

“In a speech to delegates at the 37th World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem on Tuesday, the premier claimed that Hitler’s original intentions were solely to expel the Jews.

According to Netanyahu, the Fuhrer changed his mind at the insistence of the Palestinian Arab leader at the time, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who argued that the expulsion of the Jews would result in their arrival en masse to Palestine, which at the time was under British Mandatory rule.”[1]

This has created a storm. Immediately, authorities of all sorts were quoted in the media stating that Netanyahu’s claims were outrageous and untrue. I will examine the outraged reactions in a future piece. Here, I examine Netanyahu’s claim in light of the available historical evidence, so that readers may form an opinion as to whether they are true.

For context, I begin with a short summary of what is not in dispute.

First, Hajj Amin al Husseini is the father of the Palestinian movement, and mentor to such figures as Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas, the current leader of this movement.

Second, Husseini organized several mass terrorist attacks against the Jews in British Mandate Palestine. The first was in 1920. Then, after the British made him the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, he used that position to launch new terrorist attacks in 1921, 1929, and 1936-39. The last was called the ‘Arab Revolt’ and Husseini and allies waged it with weapons supplied by Adolf Hitler.

Third, after he left the Mandate in 1939, Husseini went to Iraq to organize a pogrom against the Iraqi Jews that destroyed the Jewish community there (the Farhud).[2]

Fourth, Husseini traveled to Italy and then to Berlin, where he was received with full honors and sat down for a high-profile chat with none-other than the Führer himself. The Nazi film (included in the documentary shown at top right) and a Nazi memorandum of this meeting both survived.

An especially relevant excerpt from that memorandum is the following:

“The Führer then made the following statement to the Mufti, enjoining him to lock it in the uttermost depths of his heart

1. He (the Führer) would carry on the battle to the total destruction of the Judeo-Communist empire in Europe.

2. At some moment which was impossible to set exactly today but which in any event was not distant, the German armies would in the course of this struggle reach the southern exit from Caucasia.

3. As soon as this had happened, the Führer would on his own give the Arab world the assurance that its hour of liberation had arrived. Germany’s objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of British power…” [3]

So Husseini got assurances from Adolf Hitler that the German Nazis would exterminate the Jews in British Mandate Palestine. This is what the father of the Palestinian movement most wanted.

Fifth, Husseini spent the rest of the war in the German-occupied sphere and played an important role in Nazi propaganda inciting Muslims on the German radio to murder Jews.

Sixth, he recruited and supervised the formation of large SS divisions made up of Bosnian and Albanian Muslims that participated in the massacres of the Yugoslav chapter of the Holocaust (photographic evidence for these latter activities is abundant, and may be found on the internet [Blog Editor: Many of those photos can be found on the HIR webpage. I’m not posting those numerous photos]).

All of the above points are uncontroversial, and for those not specifically footnoted here you may consult the relevant documentation in a different HIR article.[4] You may also consult the documentation put together by The Nation in the 1947 article reproduced at right.

So what is the great brouhaha in the media all about? It is about the following two questions:

1) Did the Nazis, as Netanyahu claims, initially mean to expel the Jews, rather than kill them all?

2) Did Hajj Amin al Husseini, as Netanyahu claims, convince the Nazis to abandon the expulsion programme for a death camp system that would kill every Jew?

There is very little controversy on the point that the Nazis initially meant to expel the European Jews.

At the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, the Attorney General expressed in his opening statements that “At the beginning, when the Nazis were still sensitive to the reaction of world opinion, the solution took the form of forced emigration.” After summarizing at some length that very policy, he states: “The pressure on Jews to emigrate was not discontinued after the outbreak of war.” In fact, “it was only as the invasion of the Soviet Union drew near that the Germans went over to ‘the final solution’ in the new sense, that is, utter physical extermination.” The Attorney General interprets Hermann Goering’s instructions to Heydrich, issued on 31 July 1941, as marking the change to a policy of extermination, but these instructions state explicitly that Goering was giving Heydrich special powers “ ‘In order to complete the mission imposed on you in the order of 24 January 1939, to solve the problem of the Jews by means of emigration or evacuation’ ” (my emphasis). This was the middle of the summer of 1941, and still they were talking about expulsion. It was not until 27 October 1941 that Himmler “issued a decree forbidding any emigration of Jews from the areas of German rule.”[5]

Thus it seems that, until the fall of 1941, to the Nazis ‘Final Solution’ still meant pushing most of the Jews out. As explained in another HIR article on this question,[5a] a number of historians have concluded precisely this from the bulk of the evidence.

For example, Gunnar Paulsson explains that “expulsion”—not extermination—“had initially been the general policy of the Nazis towards the Jews.”[6] Tobias Jersak writes: “Since the 1995 publication of Michael Wildt’s documentation on the SS’s Security Service (Sicherheitsdienst SD) and the ‘Jewish Question,’ it has been undisputed that from 1933 Nazi policy concerning the ‘Jewish Question’ aimed at the emigration of all Jews, preferably to Palestine.”[7] Even after the conquest of Poland, writes Paulsson, “Jewish emigration continued to be permitted and even encouraged, while other expulsion plans were considered.”[8] Christopher Simpson points out that, though many Jews were being murdered, and people such as Reinhard Heydrich of the SS pushed for wholesale extermination, “other ministries” disagreed, and these favored “deportation and resettlement,” though they disagreed about where to put the Jews and how much terror to apply to them.[9]And so, “until the autumn of 1941,” conclude Marrus & Paxton, “no one defined the final solution with precision, but all signs pointed toward some vast and as yet unspecified project of mass emigration.”[10]

It is true that a great many Jews were being killed on the Eastern front, and these deaths of course must be counted in what is called the Shoa (or ‘Holocaust’), but, according to these historians, “until the autumn of 1941” there wasn’t as yet a decision to kill all of the European Jews in death camps. Husseini arrived in Berlin in “the autumn of 1941” (November 1941, to be precise). Husseini thus arrived right on time to argue powerfully in favor of what became the Wannsee Conference decision to kill every last living European Jew. This agrees nicely with Netanyahu’s claims.

But, in fact, the evidence is even more agreeable than this to Netanyahu’s claims.

At his trial, Adolf Eichmann confessed that he made an early trip to British Mandate Palestine in 1939 to see if the Jews could be sent there. Another objective of his trip, he confessed, was to meet with ‘Grand Mufti’ Hajj Amin al Husseini.[10a] So Husseini had ample opportunity to argue influentially in favor of total extermination well before November of 1941, for he was in contact with the very Nazi leaders who wanted to send the Jews to Palestine much earlier than that (something that is obvious, anyway, from German Nazi shipments of weapons to Husseini’s terrorists during the so-called ‘Arab Revolt’ of 1936-39). Nothing necessarily hinges, therefore, on Husseini’s arrival in Berlin, or on the exact date of the first killings to be labeled ‘Holocaust,’ as many seem to think.

Finally, according to Dieter Wisliceny, right-hand man to Adolf Eichmann, Husseini did contribute to the Nazi decision to create a death camp system, precisely in the manner that Netanyahu claims.

After the war, and prior to his execution for crimes against humanity, Wisliceny was asked to comment on the testimony of one Eng. Andrej or (Endre) Steiner. During the war, according to Steiner’s testimony, Wisliceny had stated that the Mufti Husseini had played an important role convincing the Nazis to opt for extermination. Wisliceny confirmed the testimony. This was all summarized by State Attorney Bach at the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem:

[Excerpt from the Eichmann trial transcript begins here]

 

State Attorney Bach: This is our document No. 281. Mr. Steiner first tells us that Wisliceny described his talks with Eichmann, why Palestine cannot be considered as the destination for emigration: “When I asked him why, he laughed and asked whether I had never heard of the Grand Mufti Husseini. He explained that the Mufti has very close contact and cooperation with Eichmann, and therefore Germany cannot agree to Palestine being the final destination, as this would be a blow to Germany’s prestige in the Mufti’s eyes.”

 

Then he goes on: “At this further conversation Wisliceny gave me more details about the cooperation between Eichmann and the Mufti. The Mufti is a sworn enemy of the Jews and has always fought for the idea of annihilating the Jews. He sticks to this idea always, also in his talks with Eichmann” – and here we have one of the points about which Wisliceny has reservations – “who, as you know, is a German who was born in Palestine. The Mufti is one of the originators of the systematic destruction of European Jewry by the Germans, and he has become a permanent colleague, partner and adviser to Eichmann and Himmler in the implementation of this programme.”

 

Here Wisliceny adds: “I have read these descriptions and find them correct, except for this, that Eichmann was born in Palestine, and that the Mufti was a permanent partner of Himmler’s; this is not what I said.”[11]

 

[Excerpt from the Eichmann trial transcript ends here]

Wisliceny, an eyewitness to the relationship between the Mufti Husseini and Eichmann, agreed to everything that Steiner had said except for the bit about Eichmann having been born in Palestine and about his relationship with Himmler. So Wisliceny agreed that “The Mufti is one of the originators of the systematic destruction of European Jewry by the Germans”—in other words, that he had played an important role in the decision to set up the death camp system.

Those who disagree with Netanyahu cannot simply express ‘outrage’ and claim, in the abstract, that Netanyahu is wrong. No matter that they consider themselves great ‘authorities’ invested with institutional prestige. No matter that they claim to speak for Yad Vashem, or ‘Holocaust survivors,’ or the ‘Jewish people’ or ‘real’ or ‘serious’ historians—or any other category of presumed scientific or moral authority which they hope will seem like a big enough stick to beat Netanyahu with. The sources are the sources. If Netanyahu’s detractors wish to disagree with the sources that support his claims, they must speak directly to their content and make a specific argument. That is the sport of historical interpretation. We’ll be waiting.

In closing, I will add that I find the moral arguments brandished to attack Netanyahu especially interesting. And they are most revealing, I believe, about a number of things, including who really has influence over media content, and which forces are ultimately responsible for shaping Israeli politics. I shall have much to say about this in a future piece, soon to come.

How Historical and Investigative Research (HIR) came to be…

SHORT SUMMARY

Historical and Investigative Research was created to make important documentation available to the general public, because the academic system is rife with politically biased censorship when it comes to examining the foreign policy of the United States.

Francisco Gil-White found out about this censorship the hard way, when, as a result of his discovery of the vastly important research done by Jared Israel and other journalists at Emperor’s Clothes, he began investigating the official and media representation of the civil wars in the former Yugoslavia, and the relationship of the US government to terrorist forces in that country. Without ever complaining that Gil-White had made a single error of documentation, Gil-White’s employer, the University of Pennsylvania psychology department, began harassing the young assistant professor, making it clear that it didn’t want him doing this kind of research. But Gil-White ignored this and continued his work, casting his eye now also on the Arab-Israeli conflict, for there appeared to be some interesting similarities in the demonization of Serbs and Jews. In time, he published a documentation of PLO origins, showing that this organization traced its roots to the German Nazi Final Solution (the most complete documentation on this is here), which explained why it was chartered to exterminate the Israeli Jews.

After this, Gil-White was threatened with the loss of his job unless he ceased doing this kind of investigative work. Francisco Gil-White has now been fired from the University of Pennsylvania despite READ THE REST

Genocidal Jew-Hater Amin al-Husseini


An Introduction by John R. Houk

© October 31, 2015

About a week ago in Jerusalem Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the World Zionist Organization’s 37th Zionist Congress. At the Congress the Prime Minister spoke of the Jerusalem Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini’s participation in Hitler’s Holocaust against the Jews which resulted in their brutal murders to the tune of about SIX MILLION human beings by the end of 1945.

It boggles my mind that the Leftist media has joined in a chorus of heated criticism of Netanyahu’s finger-pointing at al-Husseini as a joint Holocaust instigator with Hitler. SO WHAT if Netanyahu was off about the degree of pivotal involvement in convincing Hitler to cleanse Europe of Jews rather than deport them?

The real point should be that al-Husseini cooperated so much with Hitler’s Final Solution against European Jews that he brought the Nazi Jew-hatred ideology back to Muslim dominated areas inspiring genocidal concepts against Jews that continue to this very day. This is evidenced in particular by the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians current murder spree against Jews in Israel.

Below is a Middle East Forum backgrounder on al-Husseini followed by a more in depth look at the dead Jew-hater by Pamela Geller.

MEF backgrounders highlight select news-relevant research and analysis from Middle East Forum staff, fellows, and publications. Sign up to the MEF mailing list to stay abreast of our work.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu caused a storm of controversy on October 20 by quoting Hajj Amin al-Husseini, the infamous grand mufti of Jerusalem during the interwar years, as having told Adolf Hitler in 1941 to “burn” rather than deport the Jews of Europe, insinuating that this influenced the unfolding Nazi genocide.

Hitler and Husseini in Berlin, November 1941

While the veracity of this quote is in question, few dispute that Husseini could well have said something to this effect given his genocidal hatred of Jews, penchant for blood-curdling rhetoric, and determination to prevent Jewish immigration to Palestine. However, opinions differ sharply, even among MEF staff and fellows, as to the degree of Hussein’s influence, both in Nazi Germany and the Middle East.

MEF Hochberg Family Writing Fellow Wolfgang G. Schwanitz, coauthor of Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East (2014), argues that two components of this question are unmistakably clear. First, Husseini’s overarching goal prior to and during Hitler’s reign, he notes, was that “whatever happens with Jews under Hitler’s reign in Europe, they should not come to the Middle East.” At the very least, the Germans understood that deportation as a solution to Europe’s “Jewish Question” risked alienating their top protégé in the Arab world – a region they expected in 1941-42 to be invading soon.

Second, Schwanitz notes that the historical record shows the mufti to be unquestionably the “foremost extra-European adviser in the process to destroy the Jews of Europe.” Adolf Eichmann and his subordinates frequently briefed Husseini as the genocide unfolded, “as if to reassure him that Hitler had not changed his mind,” he writes in a forthcoming article.

Husseini (left), Indian nationalist leader Subhash Chandra Bose, and Iraqi leader Rashid Ali al-Gaylani in Berlin, 1943

In contrast, MEF fellow Jeffrey Herf, author of Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World (2010), contends that the Husseini’s “importance in Nazi Berlin lay far more in assisting the Third Reich’s Arabic language propaganda … and in mobilizing Muslims in Eastern Europe to support the Nazi regime.” Although these achievements surely facilitated Nazi atrocities, Hitler “made the decisions to implement the Final Solution and had communicated those decisions to key actors in the Nazi regime at the latest a month before his [1941] meeting with Husseini.”

Whatever his role in the Holocaust, MEF staff and fellows widely agree that Husseini was a critical ideological progenitor of Middle Eastern extremism today. The mufti was among the first to “exploit the draw of the Islamic holy places in Jerusalem to find international Muslim support” for the anti-Zionist cause, notes MEF President Daniel Pipes, a theme very much in evidence today among Palestinian Islamists.

Moreover, Husseini “can be largely held responsible for the Middle East’s endemic antisemitism,” writes Daniel Pipes in a recent Washington Times op-ed, pointing to his postwar tutelage of Yasser Arafat and other rising Palestinian figures, as well the Muslim Brotherhood during his stay in Egypt after the Nazi defeat.

Hitler’s Mein Kampf has been a bestseller in the Middle East since the 1930s.

As Boris Havel illustrates in a recent Middle East Quarterly article, Husseini’s propaganda traced “alleged Jewish power and ambitions” in the here and now “to supposed Jewish activities at the time of Muhammad,” a theological innovation that is today a staple of Islamist discourse.

Because of Husseini, there remains an “inescapable and inextricable connection between Islamists … and the Nazi movement” today, MEF Director Gregg Roman told Al-Jazeera English on October 22. In an early Middle East Quarterly article, famed Princeton University historian Bernard Lewis notes (without specific reference to Husseini) the “astonishing degree” to which “the ideas, the literature, even the crudest inventions of the Nazis and their predecessors have been internalized and Islamized” in the Middle East.

At the same time, it is important not to overstate Husseini’s influence. When the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) placed ads on Philadelphia buses displaying a photo of Husseini and Hitler with a caption reading “Adolf Hitler and his staunch ally, the leader of the Muslim world,” Daniel Pipes cautioned that the “text is factually inaccurate,” calling Husseini “a British appointee in the Mandate for Palestine, where Muslims constituted less than 1 percent of the total world Muslim population.”

Pamela Geller, WND Column: Netanyahu tells truth about mufti’s role in Holocaust

By Pamela Geller

October 29, 2015

Pamela Geller – Atlas Shrugs

The mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Hajj Amin Husseini, visits the volunteer Nazi Waffen-SS division in Bosnia, made up of Bosnian Muslims

If case you missed my column at WND this week:

DEFENDING THE WEST
Netanyahu tells truth about mufti’s role in Holocaust

Exclusive: Pamela Geller defends Bibi against onslaught of media attack

The condemnations have been way over the top: Benjamin Netanyahu is being denounced by the media and political elites all over the world, in a way that the openly genocidal jihadist Mahmoud Abbas never has been. Netanyahu’s crime? He told the Zionist Congress last Tuesday, “Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time; he wanted to expel the Jews.” Netanyahu quoted Hitler asking the mufti, “So what should I do with them?” The mufti responded, according to Netanyahu, “Burn them.’”

Those who are excoriating Netanyahu for this are overlooking one fact: Netanyahu was right.

The mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, lived in Berlin from 1941 to 1945 and recruited a Muslim SS division for Hitler. And Netanyahu was correct: The Nazis originally pursued a policy of exiling Jews to Eastern Europe, and even to Palestine – until the mufti protested that they must not be sent there. The decision to exterminate the Jews came soon after that.

It is good to see that Netanyahu is not backing down. He called the criticism of his remarks “absurd,” which it is: Netanyahu’s remarks mirror my ads highlighting the role of the Muslim world during the Holocaust, and Netanyahu is experiencing the same blowback from Islamic supremacists and Islamic apologists that I got.

The premier front man for the failed idea that we should place all our hope in “moderate Islam,” Daniel Pipes, claimed several months ago that our ad campaign in Philadelphia calling attention to the mufti’s relationship with Hitler was a failure. Pipes took issue with our factual assertions, asserting that the mufti’s meeting with Hitler was a “one-time, opportunistic consultation.” Really? Tell that to the 400,000 Jewish women and children Husseini sent to their deaths at Nazi concentration camps. Tell that to the victims of the Muslim armies in Bosnia that Husseini raised for Hitler.

Pamela Geller’s commitment to freedom from jihad and Shariah shines forth in her books – featured at the WND Superstore

Al-Husseini lived in Berlin during World War II on Hitler’s dime and made weekly radio addresses from Berlin to the Axis power nations and the Muslim world. In one, he screamed: “Arabs, rise and fight as one for your sacred rights. Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases Allah, history and religion. This saves your honor, Allah is with you.”

The mufti made similar appeals, always pointing to the Quran, time and time again in his radio addresses during the war. He organized propaganda services to the Muslims of the world from Berlin. He used Axis radio stations calling Muslims to arms in a holy war against the Allies. He aided the Nazi espionage service. He raised Muslim parachute groups for sabotage in the Middle East. He raised Muslim formations to fight the allies. He helped in the Nazi plan to exterminate nearly 6 million Jews.

“Hitler,” Netanyahu said in further remarks after the media firestorm began, “was responsible for the Final Solution to exterminate six million Jews; he made the decision. It is equally absurd to ignore the role played by the mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, a war criminal, for encouraging and urging Hitler.”

Right again. At my website, PamelaGeller.com, I have been calling attention to this for years. SS Hauptsturmfuehrer Dieter Wisliceny, a close collaborator of Adolf Eichmann, testified that “the grand mufti, who had been in Berlin since 1941, played a role in the decision of the German government to exterminate the European Jews the importance of which must not be disregarded. He had repeatedly suggested to the various authorities with whom he had been in contact, above all before Hitler, Ribbentrop and Himmler, the extermination of European jury. He considers this as a comfortable solution of the Palestine problem. In his messages broadcast from Berlin, he surpassed us in anti-Jewish attacks. He was one of Eichmann’s best friends and has constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures. I heard say that, accompanied by Eichmann, he has visited incognito the gas chamber it Auschwitz.”

Eichmann made the statement referred to in the affidavit in his office in Budapest on June 4, 1944; the confirmation by Wisliceny was given some days later also in Budapest.

To his Eminence the Grand Mufti, a Souvenir, July 4, 1943” H. Himmler

Not only that: According to testimony at the Nuremberg trials, “[T]he mufti was a bitter arch enemy of the Jews and had always been the protagonist of the idea of their annihilation. This idea the mufti had always advanced in his conversations with Eichmann.”

The mufti’s role in the Holocaust has been covered up. The New York Post reported back in 1948 that “on Aug. 28, 1946, Dean Acheson, then Acting Secretary of State, announced that ‘the State Dept. is preparing a White Paper concerning the activities of the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem.’ Acheson said the publication would be in the form of a book, which would cover all the documents concerning the ex-Mufti seized from German files. This White Paper has not yet been published, although 17 months have passed. What keeps the State Dept. from publishing it? Who is interested in the delay? Are all the documents safe?”

That delay has now continued for nearly seventy years. The white paper was never published. I submitted a Freedom of Information Act request several years ago, asking for a copy of it, as well as of all State Department correspondence relating to it. The State Department responded that such a white paper did not exist and had never existed, and that there was no correspondence about it.

So what did happen to that promised white paper? Under whose auspices, and for what reason, has the mufti’s role in the Holocaust been shrouded in silence?

Netanyahu did the world a great service by calling attention to this. The intensity of the attacks against him only testifies to how much he struck a nerve. In the mainstream media, Islam and Muslims must never, ever be criticized. We may only hope that the controversy will lead to some of the details being revealed about the mufti’s role in Hitler’s genocide.
