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.

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?

 

Always,

Dear Ari san,

 

Only for your guidance, I sent following message to one friend liv[ing] in south France.

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.

Everything But Terrorism


Ramadan Bombathon 2016

This is an extraordinary essay by Ari Bussel. I typically like to provide some kind of summary of a submitted essay, report or exposé. To do so here would turn into another essay.

 

I’ll try a few words though. Ari tackles Western political correctness in relation to being blind toward Islamic terrorism AND this blindness extends to Israel which tackles Islamic terrorism with a higher intensity than the West. The Western blindness tends to criticize Israel as the perpetrator and giving a pass to Palestinian Islamic terrorists due to the lie that Arab-Muslims are the true indigenous people of some mythical Palestine. A Palestine that really never existed until after WWI. A Palestine that the West viewed as much as a land of Jews as a land of Arabs (of which a majority of those Arabs immigrated to get jobs by repatriated Western Jews). Here’s as good an essay teaser as any:

 

A day will come when we all – Muslims and non-Muslims alike – see that there is no difference between Daesh, Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabism and the Iranian Supreme Global Caliphate.  They all want to establish the same rule where non-Muslims are subjugated to Muslims–Ari Bussel

Everything But Terrorism

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 6/12/2016 10:24 PM

 

Early Sunday morning in Los Angeles, the news broke about 20 dead in Orlando. Hours later it would turn out to be 50 dead in a gay club, perpetrator happens to have a Muslim name.  Speculations range, “is it a hate crime?”  Clearly it cannot be a “Terrorist attack;” this we know to be an absolute truth, and facts must not confuse us.

 

Since we are practically forbidden from using the word “Terrorism” in the same context as “Islam,” we normally revert to “workplace violence,” the term favored by US President Obama.  To make the term more suitable to the location, let us replace it with “drinking-place violence” (those inside just happened not to be “straight,” thus the entire episode is more comprehensible, open to more suggestions) and continue with our daily lives.

 

President Obama believes that every act of terrorism, when the perpetrators shout “Allah u Akbar” (God is Great), is simply carried out by a deranged individual and there is no overlap between it and the great religion of peace spreading its tentacles, aiming to reach global domination.

 

Just days earlier, at the center of Tel Aviv, at a location somewhat like the Grove in Los Angeles, two cousins sat at a restaurant chain to drink coffee.  Two attractive young men, they were very well dressed, some say “disguised,” indistinguishable from any other Israeli there.

 

“Drinking-place violence” happens everywhere it seems.  Apparently the two cousins did not want to pay, for instead they took out guns and started shooting, murdering four, wounding six others.

 

Perpetrators:  Muslim.

 

Victims:  Jewish/Israelis.  Score (in casualties):  0:10. Real score (Islam: West):  1:0 (enemies of the West having the upper hand).  But clearly this has nothing to do with the act.  Or does it?

 

It will be later learned the two cousins planned something much bigger, the ten casualties being negligible in comparison to the actual forecast.

 

How are the two instances connected?  They both happened during the holy-to-Muslims month of Ramadan.  Also, they both targeted the most hated:  Jews in Israel and gays in America.

 

In mosques the world over, including in Israel and the USA, Islamic clergies call to cleanse the world and promise 72 virgins in heaven to anyone bold enough to carry the act.  In Gaza and Judea and Samaria, young Muslims are trained at summer camps how to bring death and mayhem (stubbing, using rifles, exploding themselves and other like heroic tasks).

 

In the internet, young Western disciples are recruited en masse.  They go via Turkey to Syria and Iraq for training, and if they do not die there, they return to their home countries to carry out “courageous” acts against the Infidels (non-believers).  During Ramadan, such acts get an extra significance of Jihad (holy-war), filled with utter and pure devotion, adorned with splashing red, hot human blood sacrifice.

 

In Iran gays are hung on trees or tall poles.  In Gaza they are executed or thrown off rooftops.  In the Palestinian Authority, children were brought to Arafat to fulfill his every craving and desire.  Prohibited (like liquor), but consumed nonetheless.

 

Old Faithful

 

Now, let us turn to the way the script is played.  In Israel, Israelis gather around, burying the dead the same day or the next (Jews must bury their dead immediately), and as painful as it might be, normalcy is restored.

 

Many go out to the same restaurant, to show support, to show we are not afraid – that life must not be interrupted or corrupted by Muslim terrorists who are influenced by Daesh or Palestinian ideology.

 

The world immediately warns Israel to show restraint, not to over-react (any reaction by Israel other than licking its wounds and retracting out of sight is considered by the world an “over-reaction”).  Moreover, when Israel decides that the extended family of the terrorists has forfeited its privileges to go to work in Israel, the world went berserk.  How dares Israel?  She must be (and thus is) immediately condemned for “collective punishment.”  Plans are formulated to sue Israel in the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

 

The privilege of being treated with respect and trust is not a right-by-virtue.  Why would Israel allow those who plot to murder her citizens to come and work in Israel?  It is clearly not an obligation; rather it – and participation in civilized society – must be earned.

 

Thus, Israel is hit by a terrorist attack, then the world stands around and spits at the wounded victim, kicks her, shouts vulgarities and threats, enjoying her misery, stubbing Israel again and again, exactly where it hurts.

 

For instance, France, itself the target of repeated “civilized” attacks and constant “discourse” with the Islamists and Daesh, is applying pressure on Israel to come to peace with her enemies – the brainwashed terrorists – by giving land and numerous other concessions.  The French see it as a quest for peace.  Israel knows it is a definite way to commit suicide.

 

The same should work very well if applied toward France:  Just accept what the Islamists want – Sharia law in France; women covered from head to toe; women as second class citizens, whose husbands are allowed and taught how to maltreat them, use them as a punching bag and blame them for their own indiscretions; the utter elimination of Christ and Christianity and the obliteration of any history (from books to Churches, forts to museums, archeology to artwork).

 

To the world, there is no terrorism ever happening in Israel, for Jewish blood is of no consequence or concern.  Whatever happens and however it happens, Israel is always found guilty in the court of international opinion.

 

The American Version

 

In the United States, there is a different script, yet no less familiar.  Even before all the facts are known, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations – calling itself “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization” – immediately “condemned the deadly shooting spree at a nightclub that left at least 20 people dead.”

 

It has become a standard reaction to quickly “hold a news conference with leaders of the Muslim community and interfaith representatives to condemn the deadly shooting spree.”  A Jewish Rabbi, Christian Father and other clergy people are kept on standby for that exact purpose.

 

In short, a photo-op and hollow lip service, even before all the facts are known.  Facts that turn out to indicate with absolute certainty that the terrorism act was perpetrated in the name of Islam; but let us not be confused with facts.

 

So quick CAIR is at organizing these “We Condemn” conferences that something smells rotten.  Why would CAIR be so quick to preempt, every time, and why is it that the perpetrators in these instances always turn out to be Muslim who invoked Allah’s name as they went on a murdering spree?

 

The “We Condemn” conferences are sprinkled-to-saturation with lots of “no one is listening to us” and “we do not get enough news coverage which we rightfully deserve” and mixed with pointing the finger at society at large: “We are unfairly and unjustly targeted because we are Muslim!”  “Americans so easily hate us!”  “So many people are Islamophobes!”  And then the best follows with haste: “We must be protected!  The Federal Government should immediately step up protection!”

 

While CAIR has become accustomed at immediately convening news conferences and pointing the finger at non-Muslims, the Administration usually waits a short while longer, say another twenty minutes to an hour, and then a grim face President Obama tells the nation that Muslims are persecuted, unjustly targeted and suffer immensely for no fault of their own.

 

The President warns, “let us not rush to judgment,” apologizes to the Muslims, defending their motives and blaming America and Americans.  His other favorite excuse: “there are too many weapons,” leaving us thinking: “Maybe we should scrap the Second Amendment!”  He is, before all, a legal expert, a professor of law and a self-proclaimed “Constitutional-law professor.”

 

Following Obama’s logic, the perpetrators become the victims, and the victims soon will have a known complex (Stockholm Syndrome) of identifying with the terrorists, justifying their actions, understanding their motives, feeling sorry for them; blaming ourselves for what we have just endured.

 

How Can We Tell?

The two back-to-back incidents highlight a growing threat to the Western World: homegrown terrorism.

 

In Israel, due to the “popular so-called ‘non-violent’ uprising” of those determined to destroy Israel, Israelis are now accustomed to extra security: Entering a bank, restaurant, night club, major shopping center or university necessitates going through security (likely better than our own TSA at the airports, shown time and again to be less than effective).

 

For the past nine months, the Israeli laboratory has been trying to comprehend and offer solutions to a new phenomenon:  The so-called “individualist-terrorist.”  A 14 year old.  A 21 year old.  Male.  Female.  Children on a mission.  Two cousins like last week’s terror attack.  All supposedly unrelated, uncoordinated and seemingly justified as a no-other-choice-reaction to great grievances.

 

Except there is a very clear common denominator:  All perpetrated by Muslims who have been brainwashed that murdering Jews would warrant their afterlife in heaven with 72 virgins.  Promised an eternal glory for them and their families.  Taught at summer camps, soccer fields and classrooms this is the way to go, a life worth living.  A small sacrifice relative to the immense injustice done to their “people.”

 

Israel still has not formulated the manner by which to respond to this terrorism.  The solution stares in Israel’s face, yet she refuses to take the necessary steps.  Perpetrators are not the victims, and terrorism in not a “non-violent uprising.”   Even in the US of A, we understand the difference between “free speech” and “hate speech” and have laws in place designed to protect us against the latter.

 

When Muslim leaders in Israel call to “quench the land’s thirst with Jewish blood,” they must be silenced.  Free speech that has long turned into hate speech, yet is allowed from the loudspeakers of mosques (including Al Aqsa in Al Quds – i.e. from the top of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel), from the podium of the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament), via official radio, TV, internet and print journalism, must be stopped.

 

For Israel to regain its calm and her enemies their human sanity, the hate fire must be put out.  Until it is done, the “Intifada by Individuals” (“Blood Symphony”) will continue unabated.  12 year olds will use knives to stab 80 year old women or kids their own age, Israel will be blamed and the so-called “Palestinians” will glorify these acts of madness and cowardliness as “Holy Jihad!”

 

Outside the Laboratory

 

Outside of Israel, the problem is two-fold: First, there is no security other than at the airports.  Profiling is prohibited.  Terminology is convoluted not to offend the touchy souls of Muslims.  We are simply not used to face constant terrorism or set up to fight it.

 

Second, the terrorists are more and more of the “homegrown” type.  They look like any other person, speak without any accent, travel freely, claim rights they do not deserve and go out on the attack.
So were the doctors in Glasgow.  Belgian, French, Swedish, Finnish, Dutch, German and so many others.  Homegrown Muslim Terrorists.  Even in Israel, the two terrorists were not only dressed up nicely – they looked like two attractive young men in their early 20s, not much different than any other Middle-Eastern Israeli!

 

Israel is the laboratory where everything is being tried and experimented.  From Israel, it is then exported the world over, and the world awaits Israel’s solutions and medicine to stop the spread.

 

CAIR and MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council), so quick to proclaim Islamic terrorism having nothing to do with Islam, are mysteriously silent in condemning and as usual very quick at pointing a blaming hand when it comes to terrorism against Israel.  This was the case, for instance, when MPAC’s president Salam Al-Marayati, spoke earlier this year in Los Angeles about “the struggle against global terrorism,” “from San Bernardino to Brussels, Israel excluded.”

 

Like CAIR and MPAC, during the Second Intifada, Muslim clergy in the West and throughout the Arab world said not a word about the constant terrorist attacks in Israel.  Until the same “homicide bombing” (strapping oneself with explosives mixed with bolts, tainted blood, etc., and exploding in the midst of people while shouting in deepest reverence: “Allah u Akbar!”) was carried out in Jordan at a wedding.  Then the entire Islamic clergy woke up to speak against it.

 

How capable are the Muslim loudmouths, how sleek and appeasing?  They are “against Terrorism,” but “terrorism” against Jews is not “Terrorism!”  Alas, what is good in a Jewish wedding is equally as effective in a Muslim wedding.  After all, the Jewish forefathers are still believed to be Muslim prophets.

 

In a Minefield

This, indeed, brings us to the true essence of fighting terrorism.  Often, one is warned not to write about Muslims and Islam.  I am often told, as if I do not know: “You cannot – must not – generalize.”  “There are many good Muslims.”  “You have Muslim friends who are good people!”

 

Beyond just “political correctness,” there is the issue of danger.  Write, draw a lame cartoon or talk about Islam in a manner not acceptable to Muslims, and you bring great danger to your life.

 

Non-Muslims, as a general rule, are not allowed to talk about Islam other than with the utmost reverence.  Anything short of that is blasphemy and is punishable by death.  There are some very famous examples, from the Danish Cartoons to Charlie Hebdo in Paris.  Salman Rushdie, Theo van Gogh, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  Meir Kahane, Rehavam Ze’evi.
And in between political correctness and beheading or death-by-some-other-gruesome-manner, there is being called “Islamophobe,” “Extremist” and other such pearls of modern-day-wisdom.

 

The Future

 

Thus we return to the back-to-back terrorist attacks in Israel and the USA.  Both perpetrated by Muslims.  In both instances, the perpetrators subscribe to an Islamic-Global-Caliphate ideology – a geopolitical movement on the rise, not a religion, or maybe a death-cult masquerading as a religion.

 

If Israel and the USA try to find internal blame, the terror has succeeded twice:  Once for planting fear in our minds and daily lives, bringing them to a stop.  And again for shaping our future behavior, conditioning us to accept Islam as being superior and untouchable and to fear being critical as we are with any other religion.

 

Fear is highly contagious.  For those not understanding its grip, try to answer how is Daesh so successful controlling vast populations of people.  Look at the Yazikis, the Iraqis, Egyptians, Iranians and Gazans.  Fear’s hold is gripping-to-stand still, it freezes the person, preventing any action.

 

A day will come when Muslims in droves will stand and speak out.  They will be silent no more.  They will do so equally whether the victims are Jewish, gay, American, Saudi or Jordanian.

 

The day is still far, far away, for at present, nothing that happens to Jews in Israel, France, South America or elsewhere in the world amounts to “terrorism,” and so none of these attacks is ever included in the long list of terrorist attacks – from the UK to France to Spain, Malaysia and Indonesia and onward around the world – all in the name of “Allah u Akbar.”

 

A day will come when those speaking for American Muslims will stop blaming everyone else and treating themselves as victims.  They do not cooperate when the authorities come to investigate.  Quite on the contrary, they have lawyers ready to sue for “violations of their civil rights.”  Buy they tell us they will freely report any “odd behavior” that leads to terrorism.

 

They constantly cry foul to the Administration and demand that doctors and others on “humanitarian” missions via Turkey to Syria and beyond not be stopped or questioned.  (Daesh is quite “humanitarian,” when burning live people, executing, raping or mutilating and definitely when selling children and women for slavery.)

 

A day will come when we all – Muslims and non-Muslims alike – see that there is no difference between Daesh, Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabism and the Iranian Supreme Global Caliphate.  They all want to establish the same rule where non-Muslims are subjugated to Muslims.

 

Rise, my Muslim friends, rise and take action.  Speaking out selectively radiates insincerity.  For terrorism is one and the same, whether applied toward a Jew, a Christian, a Muslim or any other person.  Rise and be true to your words, so that we can start believing what you say.  Overlapping faith and action will offer you protection as well, for else, you may find yourselves in Pastor Martin Niemöller’s poem – dead too.

 

Why should Muslims care?  Because if they do not subscribe the particular version that sees itself superior and happens to be most gruesome, thus having the upper hand, they will find their fate is the same as that of the “Pigs and Apes” (Jews and Christians and all other non-believers) “People of the Book.”

 

Hamas, for instance, that exists to bring about the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel (as is prominently featured in its Charter and daily actions) has agreed for a temporary cessation of hostilities due to the real threat of Daesh.  (Apparently Israel has some uses after all.)

 

For those that supreme ideologies and races sound familiar, there is a reason.  All that is necessary is to look at our history books at what happened some 75 years ago.  And for those who are skeptical at the comparison, be assured that in addition to six million Jews who were methodologically exterminated (including more than a million children), there were many other non-desirables (gays, gypsies, political opponents and tens of millions others who did not subscribe to the Arian race, the Japanese superiority, etc.).

 

And a day will come when common sense will return to govern.  Muslims will be treated with respect rather than suspicion, like any other minority, because they deserve it, because they had removed the cancer from within.  And respect and trust will have to be earned, not demanded and taken at will.

 

Until such time, we had another work-place violence.  The perpetrator’s Muslim name has nothing to do with the act of crime.  Muslims must be protected, for they are just the victims.  We are all at fault, for we hate Muslims with a vengeance.  And in condemning what took place, we must equate it with everything else that takes place around the world (first and foremost:  Israel is guilty!).

 

People are murdered, and life goes on.  Paris.  Tel Aviv.  Orlando.  It will continue until Israel finds a cure.  Then a new cycle-of-violence will be unleashed, more horrible than before.

 

At least we can rest assured that the world’s laboratory is hard at work, never sleeping nor slumbering.  Israel is the guard on the walls protecting the world, although at the moment, these walls seem to be ready to fall down.

Too Evil to Fail?


Just below is a quote from the Ari Bussel article sent about what the real detractors of ISIS call “Daesh”:

The Palestinian Authority is spouting venom in all directions, firing without notice. It blames the USA for ISIS.

Fear has not frozen the PA. Instead, it has sprung to action in the only manner it knows: it attacks, pleads, lies and cheats. It deceives. It creates a false reality in which it is at the center – the light and the embodiment of innocence – and everyone around is trying to harm it.

It asserts the world must spring into action to protect it. Even Israel, its sworn enemy, must do all it can for the PA, “for Israel’s own sake.”

Let us look at the PA’s twisted logic: Save us, or else Daesh will take over, we will be gone and you will face a fiercer enemy on your borders.

You will shortly comprehend from Ari’s article that even the Muslim terrorists that surround Israel are becoming afraid of Daesh. Those same Muslim terrorists are crying for Israel to protect them from Daesh so that the Muslim terrorists kill all the Jews of Israel and renamed the Land of the Jews as Palestine.

Too Evil to Fail?

The Black Plague

By Ari Bussel

“Daesh is on our border; they are here with their ideology; and they are looking to find a suitable platform to establish their base. Therefore, we must prevent a collapse here, because the alternative is anarchy, violence and terrorism.” Major General Majid Faraj, head of the Palestinian General Intelligence Service, in an interview with Defense News.

Those who remember the self-made financial crisis of 2008-2009, would also remember that the top banks – Bank of America, Citibank, Chase, Wells Fargo – were to be safeguarded as “too big to fail.”

If these business entities were allowed to topple, we were warned, the world would collapse and systems fail and an end of apocalyptic proportions would descend upon us.

Not really. Quite the contrary—it is healthy in a free marketplace for systems to fail from time to time, and they should not receive immunity just because of their size or market domination.

A few years later, a new crisis has erupted and the world is awash in fear. It is known as the Islamic State, ISIL, ISIS or by its abbreviation in Arabic, Daesh.

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas alike are afraid of Daesh, “dead afraid,” and there is no pun intended. The moderate Jordanian regime likewise feels threatened. Its strong neighbor to the north is fighting for its survival against the forces of Daesh. Even the American President is afraid for some reason of the word “Daesh” and is enraged by it.

Daesh is good, though, for Muslims in the USA. They have found a new bull’s eye to which to direct any criticism. Overnight they became “moderate” and the Islamists who want to establish an Islamic Caliphate and have expanded throughout the Arabian Peninsula and Middle East are just a “perversion” of their “peaceful religion.”

Except, there is not much difference between the ideology of Daesh and that of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah or Saudi Wahhabism so prevalent in the USA. They all strive to establish a global Islamic Caliphate, and their varying degrees of fanaticism only differ in the extent to which atrocities are carried out.

Wahhabism has seemingly adapted to Western living, whereas Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran have mastered duplicity, talking to Western ears in one manner and still behaving as they wish. Whereas Daesh behaves as they believe, in the same manner accepted by all previous cancerous organisms: They behead, burn live people, shoot hundreds at point blank just to make a point, rape and mutilate women and children and sell them for slavery, all done for the world to see and fear.

All these forms of Islam are not perversion, but modern day manifestations and feelings of strength and power. Current-day Islamists grow, multiply, conquer and spread, and the world seems unable to stop them. In a way, they are like a biological system, where Daesh is similar to an Ebola-type disease, Iran a cancer with long latency period, Hamas and Hezbollah more aggressive types of cancer and Wahhabism is similar to AIDS (we have grown accustomed to living with it).

The day has now come when evil is worried about the spread of something even more evil. Even in nature, one knows its exact place in the food chain, and predators are prey to even larger, more vicious predators they cannot ignore if they wish to remain alive.

Not knowing what to do and how to protect itself, each behaves differently. Hamas suddenly becomes a bit more compromising, realizing that Israel is much more bearable than Daesh.

The Palestinian Authority is spouting venom in all directions, firing without notice. It blames the USA for ISIS.

Fear has not frozen the PA. Instead, it has sprung to action in the only manner it knows: it attacks, pleads, lies and cheats. It deceives. It creates a false reality in which it is at the center – the light and the embodiment of innocence – and everyone around is trying to harm it.

It asserts the world must spring into action to protect it. Even Israel, its sworn enemy, must do all it can for the PA, “for Israel’s own sake.”

Let us look at the PA’s twisted logic: Save us, or else Daesh will take over, we will be gone and you will face a fiercer enemy on your borders.

Do all you can for our sake, for then you will be helping yourselves.

We are your peace partners who for the past four months, had to kill 29 of you and wound some 300, only because you left us no choice. The land was thirsty for your blood, because we say you were defiling the Temple Mount and threatening the Al Aqsa Mosque.

You stole our capital and our cities, from Acre to Haifa to Jaffe. Yes, you do not appear on our maps, but you do not really expect to remain here, do you? Go back to Europe, from where you came. You have no claim or connection to this land.

Millions of us are waiting in refugee camps, in Jordan, in Europe and in the USA, to return to their homes. We kept the keys. We are the true owners of the land. It will be ours once again one day very soon.

We see Palestine with no Jews. Oh, any loyal Arab who dares to sell his land to the Jews is a traitor. He must pay the price and be made an example for all to see and fear. The Jews have already stolen all that was ours, and they still want more!

Boycott Israel! Divest from Israel! Sanction Israel! The Zionist dream is nothing short of Colonialism, Imperialism and Apartheid all combined. It is the most evil and dangerous experiment the world has ever seen.


Why are you silent? Why do you not help us? You must maintain the flow of money. You must pressure Israel even more.

Those Settlements must be dismantled and removed. They are the true obstacles to peace. The Settlers are the worst embodiment of evil on earth. Even the Israelis who live in Tel Aviv admit this is the case and would not go beyond the Green Line, buy wines from Occupied West Bank or extend services to the wild west there in Satan’s land.

The world must come to our rescue! You must protect us, for Daesh is at our borders and our power is limited by those Israelis.

We must receive more weapons, ammunition and money. We must be strengthened, or else Daesh is here and might topple us down!

The PA seems to think it is too important to fail, and I humbly submit it is too evil and must fail. [Blog Editor: Bold Print Mine] Only then the world might wake up to the realization it has wasted the past few decades fighting the body Israel instead of strengthening it, for if Israel dies, the world will die next without a vaccine.

You see, in the laboratory of the Middle East, Israel is the guinea pig. If no inoculation becomes available against the fanatical Islamists (PA, Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran), Israel will die and the world will be next. It has already been infected and is has weakened tremendously.

Thus, the fate of humanity as we know it and of the free world rests in this laboratory. Is Israel the canary in the Middle-Eastern coalmine, or will she manufacture the necessary antidotes?

History has taught us that for millennia the Jewish people managed to survive. The Black Plague is once again threatening the world, and those in the Middle East have felt the threat and are shaking with fear. Without Israel, the world is doomed. Without the PA, Israel may still survive to save the world.

The Hill: Islamophobia – It’s a Growth Industry


Brigitte Gabriel

Brigitte Gabriel sent an email to the ACT for America list on June 16 highlighting an editorial at The Hill exposing the baloney of Islamophobia being hate speech. The article was written on June 10 but it is still quite relevant.

The Hill: Islamophobia – It’s a Growth Industry

From Brigitte Gabriel

It’s rare that we see an article like this published in a mainstream news outlet like The Hill. Abraham Miller lays out the truth about the grievance industry that groups like CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, have created.

Their goal is simple: rather than embrace our shared constitutional values, they seek to be set aside as a special group — freedom of religion and expression for me, but not for thee. Groups like this refuse to acknowledge the fact that the majority of “hate crimes” committed are against Jews, rather than Muslims. Meanwhile, they use the language of the left to perpetuate their status as victims.

I’m pleasantly surprised to see something like this published in a major newspaper. Perhaps the horrors of the Islamic State’s violent jihad overseas is causing Americans to take notice of the soft jihad going on all around them.

Islamophobia: It’s a growth industry

By Abraham H. Miller

June 10, 2015, 02:00 pm

The Hill

Taking time off from the crucifixions and decapitations to burn a Yazidi woman to death for refusing to perform a vile sex act, Islamic State’s home-field hard jihad is alive and well, while back at the University of California, Berkeley, the more palatable soft jihad is also alive and well.

The sixth annual Islamophobia conference was underway in a lecture hall sparsely populated by a complement of the usual suspects, women in hijabs and panel presenters working diligently to turn Islamophobia into another respected academic field based on oppression studies.

The gadfly of the movement is Berkeley instructor Hatem Bazian, a self-proclaimed authority on the subject. When not justifying Islamist violence in the streets of Europe as a response to Islamophobia or calling for an American Intifada from the streets of San Francisco, Bazian can be heard rattling off the names of Jewish donors to the Berkeley campus to show the alleged disproportionate influence of Jews in campus affairs. Bazian maintains a studied silence about the Saudi largess that sustains his own department of Near Eastern studies.

But then Bazian has seldom let facts intrude on an emotional appeal grounded in prejudice. Despite the fanfare about the supposed legitimacy of Islamic studies in the Oppression department, neither the presence of Islamophobia courses nor the data on ant-Islamic hate crimes seems to bear that out.

There is the inconvenient reality of FBI crime statistics. Of religious-oriented hate crimes, 62 percent are directed against Jews, and 12 percent — a distant second — are directed against Muslims. If one were to make the inferential leap that the same groups that target Jews in Europe target them in America and the anti-Semitism evident on campus does not stop at the campus gate, then it is clear who is responsible for a large portion of that anti-Semitism.

As Bazian prepares to run off to an Islamophobic conference in Paris, industry leader CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) launched a fundraising letter to rouse the faithful and the naïve to part with their money to stop the “threat” of Islamophobia.

Poster girl for the CAIR fundraising letter is Nina Rosenwald, a well-known philanthropist and granddaughter of Julius Rosenwald, the famed Chicago patron of African-American causes, who left half of his $68,000,000 fortune to African-American charities and partnered with Booker T. Washington to create Tuskegee University.

CAIR’s dispute with Rosenwald centers on her support for pro-Israel causes. To be pro-Israel is not to be anti-Muslim, as CAIR would have its donors believe. Among other charitable work, Rosenwald is actively involved in the American Friends of the Open University of Israel, a distance-learning program that provides access to higher education to all residents of Israel, regardless of faith or ethnicity.

If anything, it might be CAIR that should account for its activities. Its connections to Hamas, a listed terrorist group, do not make for credibility and are the source for the FBI ceasing connections with the self-proclaimed civil liberties group.

Recently, CAIR has been in the news opposing the showing of the biopic “American Sniper,” joining a chorus of Islamic campus voices that label it anti-Muslim. But, it would seem that either CAIR’s sensitivities are overdeveloped, or American servicemen like Sniper’s Chris Kyle are not deserving of heroic status.

While the two issues are not mutually exclusive, CAIR’s San Francisco chapter executive-director Zahra Billoo at least made it clear that she struggles each Memorial Day whether to honor American soldiers who died in wars that she considers unjust.

That kind of statement, like the outrage against the biopic of an American hero who kept some Muslims safe from other Muslims who wanted to kill them, undermines CAIR’s goal of making Islam a positive force in American life. It does far more harm to the status of Islam in America than the political positions, real or imaginary, of any group that Nina Rosenwald might fund.

Hatem Bazian does not speak for those Muslim students seeking to integrate into the fabric of American pluralistic society, who are not about exploiting a faux Islamophobia, but about getting a degree and contributing to the greater good. CAIR’s Zahra Billoo’s Memorial Day reflections do not honor the memory of those Muslim-American soldiers who died alongside their comrades in America’s wars.

The Bazians and Billoos notwithstanding, those of us who have taught in universities know that there are thousands of Muslim students who would never attend a Bazian political circus with its message of victimhood. Equally, the majority of Muslims in our community are concerned more about their future as Americans than about supporting Middle East terrorist groups.

Perhaps CAIR might consider showcasing some of these people rather than maligning a third-generation philanthropist as an Islamophobe simply because she disagrees with CAIR’s policies in the Middle East.

This is America. We can agree to disagree. CAIR is free to attack our heroes and our symbols, just as we are free to call them out for it. But if CAIR wants Americans to see Islam as a positive force in American life, it might want to rethink its message.
