Make no excuses for them

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 24, 2006


A friend wrote this, in response to troubles that occured in several Groups in Care2:

 

“For people who haven’t experienced it and haven’t learned to recognise it, anti-Semitism can be a mystery to some. To many, it’s unconscious.Think of the 50s in the States, if you were here. Even the times just before Martin Luther King and that recent civil rights struggle. It was common for stereotypes of African-Americans to appear openly everywhere, in films, on TV, in books, in newspapers. African-Americans were always conscious of the discrimination they endured, the very open discrimination, but much of the rest of society needed to learn it was happening. Many unconsciously took part in it without knowing, by never questioning, by accepting the stereotypes and the racial epithets.

Most who used those racial epithets and laughed at or played along with the stereotypes of African-Americans would never have described themselves as racists. But they were; we all were. It came from ignorance, in most cases, but it was just as damaging, just as hurtful, just as horrid as the racism of the conscious racists.

And the conscious racists of those times? They didn’t hide their feelings but they, too, never described themselves as racists. They said they were realists. They claimed garbage like, the Bible supported separation of races and the Bible supported the “fact” that
African-Americans were inferior. They claimed blacks weren’t advanced enough or smart enough to be allowed the right to vote.

This was just a few years ago. And it was just a few years before that when Africans and other peoples of color were kept in this country as slaves. Slaves. Not just by the racists, but by the unquestioning majority, the ignorant majority. To many, if they were not black, the racism and discrimination was invisible. They didn’t see; they didn’t choose to see it.

Today, as a whole, we are not as ignorant. But that racism and the stereotypes created over centuries still poison relations between African-Americans and others in the States. We are only beginning to gain consciousness and work our ways out of this disaster of perception we have created. We are only beginning to free ourselves from this bile.

The racism we had and still have stayed with us because the majority didn’t question and a truly racist minority manipulated and hid their poison behind pseudo-science and pseudo-religion.

In many ways, anti-Semitism exists as does racism exist. From igonorance, from millenia of people creating Jewish stereotypes and Jewish scapegoats. Most people don’t know they may be taking part in it. How many have heard or used the term, “Jewing someone down,” and not thought a thing of it? How many have bought into the lie that “Jews killed Christ”? Or the stereotype of the “cheap Jew.” Most of you, if you do that, would never think of yourself as an anti-Semite. But everyone who is Jewish knows you are, even if you don’t realise it.

And then there are the true haters of Jews, who hide their hatred behind pseudo-religious pronouncements and other obfuscations. The ones who say they hate Israel – it’s easy to say that one – when they really hate Jews. And Jews are sensitive to anti-Semitism in the same way that American blacks are sensitive to racism. Jews recognise anti-Semitism in the same way that blacks recognise racism. It is ubiquitous in US society.

With racism, with anti-Semitism, with the bigotry against gays and lesbians, the bigotry against Muslims, the bigotry against Hispanics, even bigotry against “whites,” etc…..we are just beginning to look outside the darkness, just begining to learn. We have thousands of years of learning we must unlearn.

But like African-Americans know the true hater, the true and vile racist, so does one who is Jewish know and recognise the true hater, the true anti-Semite.

We have some here at Care2. Their names have been mentioned here. Make no excuses for them. They are not unconscious. They know their hate and spit their hate whenever they can. Make no excuses for them. They will not admit they hate Jews or are anti-Semites, but make no mistake, the lives of millions and millions of Jews have taught us who they are. Make no excuses for them. And let us be aware and learn to change.

Trust our perceptions – and help us, let us each help us, throw off these shackles of racism, sexism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. Let us help each other recognise who we are and what we are doing. Let us help each other free ourselves and banish this poison from all of our souls.” (© 2006 Knate S, used with permission.)

It really cannot be said better.

Realizing that I harbor prejudices against some people or Groups of people, because of their background, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or whatever it might be, is painful, and yet, recognizing bigotry in myself is the only way to up-root and out-root it in society. That takes courage, honesty and humility. May we all be brave, honest and humble.

Shalom!

UNDECLARED WWIII – Part 2 – Suicide Murders

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 16, 2006


I started picking Haim Harari’s Undeclared WWII apart HERE – this is the continuation. I don’t claim to be an expert on the Middle East, but I have had reason lately to do a lot of research and thinking – I hope that it will at least cause discussion.Suicide Murders

“These are the four main pillars of the current World Conflict, or perhaps we should already refer to it as “the undeclared World War III”. I have no better name for the present situation. A few more years may pass before everybody acknowledges that it is a World War, but we are already well into it. “

I think the title “The Undeclared World War III” – considering the illegal war in Afganistan and Iraq, perpetrated by the US – is a little over the top. It is playing into the hands of the American Adminstration, and I do not believe the US Government needs any pats on the back. It is however also important to point out that there is a clash of cultures and attitudes, that doesn’t necessarily run along traditional Nation/State lines – although the Terror Organizations we are speking of here in some cases are sponsored by Sovereign States – such as Hezbollah, sponsored by Iran and Syria, and they all do receive financial aid from States in the area, not all citzens of those Staes agree with their agenda. So to claim that this is a clash between the Arab World and the West is not accurate.

It doesn’t change the fact that there is a War going on and that the neutral Powers (i.e the United Nations) should take the reins and become a World Leader in this. The UN needs to undergo serious reforms – one such reform is that “resolutions” shouldn’t be passed by single majority. No Nation should be able to veto something. Parties that are involved in armed conflict should be treated equally, regardless of whether they are actual sovereign nations or not.

If a member country chooses to not pay their member’s fee, they should barred from the decision making process. And, the UN Peace-keeping Forces should be allowed to use weapons-force when fired on or when protecting civilians. It is absolutely ridiculus that the UN Soldiers are not allowed to fire back when fired on, to protect themselves and civilians.

 

“The first element is the suicide murder. Suicide murders are not new invention but they have been made popular, if I may use this expression, only lately. Even after September 11, it seems that most of the Western World does not yet understand this weapon. It is a very potent psychological weapon. Its real direct impact is relatively minor. The total number of casualties from hundreds of suicide murders within Israel in the last three years is much smaller than those due to car accidents. September 11 was quantitatively much less lethal than many earthquakes. More people die from AIDS in one day in Africa than all the Russians who died in the hands of Chechnya-based Moslem suicide murderers since that conflict started. Saddam killed every month more people than all those who died from suicide murders since the Coalition occupation of Iraq.”

For the sake of balance and clarity – please refer to this Wikipedia Page on Suicide Bombings.

 

“So what is all the fuss about suicide killings? It creates headlines. It is spectacular. It is frightening. It is a very cruel death with bodies dismembered and horrible severe lifelong injuries to many of the wounded. It is always shown on television in great detail. One such murder, with the help of hysterical media coverage, can destroy the tourism industry of a country for quite a while, as it did in Bali and in Turkey.”

One of the greatest problems with the Suicide murders is not the existence of it, but how MEDIA” glorify” it by giving each incident hours and hours, pages and pages of attention. If each incident was treated like any simple suicide – i.e something not very socially acceptable, I am sure that many prospective suicide murderes would never get strapped with explosives.

The #1 aim of terror is to terrify. The best example of how this was acheived in a major way is the US after 9/11, 2001 – the news channels carry “terror-alert” banners, rolling 24/7 constantly telling the American people that the risk of another terrorist-attack is “elevated” – thus creating a constant hightened stress-level – subconsciously at least, subsequently playing right into the hands of the terrorists. The major News Channels, like FoX and CNN are giving the terrorists free advertizing time this way, doing their bidding by spreading terror.

“But the real fear comes from the undisputed fact that no defense and no preventive measures can succeed against a determined suicide murderer. This has not yet penetrated the thinking of the Western World. The U.S. and Europe are constantly improving their defense against the last murder, not the next one. We may arrange for the best airport security in the world. But if you want to murder by suicide, you do not have to board a plane in order to explode yourself and kill many people. Who could stop a suicide murder in the midst of the crowded line waiting to be checked by the airport metal detector? How about the lines to the check-in counters in a busy travel period? Put a metal detector in front of every train station in Spain and the terrorists will get the buses. Protect the buses and they will explode in movie theaters, concert halls, supermarkets, shopping malls, schools and hospitals. Put guards in front of every concert hall and there will always be a line of people to be checked by the guards and this line will be the target, not to speak of killing the guards themselves. You can somewhat reduce your vulnerability by preventive and defensive measures and by strict border controls but not eliminate it and definitely not in the war in a defensive way. And it is a war!”

The Brittish have realized this. They are concerned, but not bothered. Years and years of dealing with the Irish Republican Army has taught them that they really cannot defend themselves against terror-attacks – but they can respond proportionately after the fact. The Brittish people didn’t go an a “self-pity bender” or demand any special treatment Internationally because some suicide murderers blew up some buses – they got off the ground and wasted no time on wallowing in their percieved self-importance. They simply went after the ones who did it, and ten day later they had caught those who where responsible for the planning and logistics. Then there was another terror-attack in London – and people don’t even remember what date THAT one was – and why? Because the Brits didn’t make a fuss about it – they just went to work catching the ones responsible – and they did. That’s a 200% success-rate compared to the Americans, who are still looking for Osama somewhere in Afganistan 5 years after the fact…*lol*

 

“What is behind the suicide murders? Money, power and cold-blooded murderous incitement, nothing else. It has nothing to do with true fanatic religious beliefs. No Moslem preacher has ever blown himself up. No son of an Arab politician or religious leader has ever blown himself. No relative of anyone influential has done it. Wouldn’t you expect some of the religious leaders to do it themselves, or to talk their sons into doing it, if this is truly a supreme act of religious fervor? Aren’t they interested in the benefits of going to Heaven? Instead, they send outcast women, naive children, retarded people and young incited hotheads. They promise them the delights, mostly sexual, of the next world, and pay their families handsomely after the supreme act is performed and enough innocent people are dead.”

This paragraph raised a couple of thoughts – the fact that no high-ranking American Politician or Military (desk-top Generals) have sons or daughters in Iraq – and me thinks that the reason for this is much the same as the reason why no high-rank Arab religious leader or politician send their sons and daughters out as suicide murderers. They know the reasons for the occupation/terror-attack are bogus, they know that what they stand for is immoral and unethical – and that wasting a life, any life, on something like that is just another lie.

 

“Suicide murders also have nothing to do with poverty and despair. The poorest region in the world, by far, is Africa. It never happens there. There are numerous desperate people in the world, in different cultures, countries and continents. Desperation does not provide anyone with explosives, reconnaissance and transportation. There was certainly more despair in Saddam’s Iraq then in Paul Bremmer’s Iraq, and no one exploded himself. A suicide murder is simply a horrible, vicious weapon of cruel, inhuman, cynical, well-funded terrorists, with no regard to human life, including the life of their fellow countrymen, but with very high regard to their own affluent well-being and their hunger for power.”

I am not sure I agree with Haim Harari about Suicide bombings not being about despair – I woul like to refer to my Blog entry “Loss of an Identity” – which deals somewhat with the historical reasons behind today’s Reign of Terror in the Middle East – lack of self-respect and a sense of not counting, can and will create despair, if given enough time and fuel.I like the fact that Haim Harari calls the people behind the suicide murders the actual killers. Because that is how it is. If this is a war, then the ones sending out the foot-soldiers, on both sides, are murderers – not the foot-soldiers. It’s like it is said about guns: “Guns don’t kill people – People kill People!”

 

“The only way to fight this new “popular” weapon is identical to the only way in which you fight organized crime or pirates on the high seas: the offensive way. Like in the case of organized crime, it is crucial that the forces on the offensive be united and it is crucial to reach the top of the crime pyramid. You cannot eliminate organized crime by arresting the little drug dealer in the street corner. You must go after the head of the “Family”.”

This is so true. Don’t spend money and time on going after the little guy – go after the Nation-Heads and the Business CEOs who send them out and fund them!

 

“If part of the public supports it, others tolerate it, many are afraid of it and some try to explain it away by poverty or by a miserable childhood, organized crime will thrive and so will terrorism. The United States understands this now, after September 11. Russia is beginning to understand it. Turkey understands it well. I am very much afraid that most of Europe still does not understand it. Unfortunately, it seems that Europe will understand it only after suicide murders will arrive in Europe in a big way. In my humble opinion, this will definitely happen. The Spanish trains and the Istanbul bombings are only the beginning. The unity of the Civilized World in fighting this horror is absolutely indispensable. Until Europe wakes up, this unity will not be achieved.”

For this we need a strong and an armed United Nations – a United Nations that can put armed force behind it’s words! Traditionally, UN Troops have been prohibited from using fire-arms when going on “Peace-Keeping missions”, even for self-defence – this has in my mind given far too much power to NATO and subsequently to the United States. This won’t work when dealing with military force that has as one of their point to hate America. First of all, the US is far too trigger happy and unreliable in terms of correct treatment of enemy combattants, secondly – UN is supposed to be INTERNATIONAL, and therefore it needs to be strengthened so that when it meets these terror organizations, it is not “tainted” by it’s dependence on the US and Nato to provide fire-power through direct threats of violence. It would also, in my mind keep the US put within it’s own borders, where it belongs, and not scourging the earth with it’s mental and physical napalm.The Security Council needs to be reformed, so that it comprises also of militarily neutral Nations, such as Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark and Norway – countries with a strong tradition of “neutrality” in terms of diplomacy and Human Rights. As we no longer live under a constant Terror Balance between East and West – the VETO can be removed, so that no member of the Security Council can sabotage an other wise unanimous Council.

Ok, til the next time

Shalom!

This is not a Satire

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 14, 2006


The Jewish Problem

Dr. William Pierce

I recently discussed the ongoing Jewish extortion effort against Switzerland. Jewish organizations claimed that Swiss banks were holding onto assets deposited by wealthy Jews in the 1930s and 1940s who later perished during the Second World War and so were never able to retrieve their money. Jews demanded that this money be put into a special fund for so-called “Holocaust survivors.”

More information has come to light about this Jewish extortion campaign, and I want to share it with you today, because it helps us to understand better the situation all of us are in. In the first place, let us be clear on the point that what we are talking about is not simply an effort by Jews to get back what rightfully belongs to them. It is not a matter of aging “Holocaust survivors” David and Sarah Goldblatt in Miami Beach trying to get their hands on an account their late uncle Abe set up in Switzerland before he was hauled off to Auschwitz in 1943 and never seen again. It is, in fact, a massive campaign of criminal extortion, complete with threats, deception, and fraud on a huge scale and criminal collusion by the Clinton government and the controlled news media.

The initial response of the Swiss to the Jewish demand for money was to state that Jewish depositors always had been treated just like all other depositors, and that Swiss bankers already had investigated their dormant accounts and looked for the rightful owners, and that there was at most a few million dollars in such accounts which might belong to relatives of Jews who had died during the war. All David and Sarah Goldblatt had to do to claim Uncle Abe’s money was present evidence that it was rightfully theirs.

This, of course, wasn’t what the Jews had in mind at all, and so they began applying pressure and making threats. Switzerland’s president at the time, Jean-Pascal Delamuraz, angrily accused the Jews of “blackmail” and “extortion” in trying to pressure Switzerland to turn money over to them without any evidence that they had a legitimate claim. But, unfortunately, Mr. Delamuraz was leaving office at the end of 1996, and his successor was more willing to pay blackmail in order to avoid trouble. Just to make sure that the Swiss got the message the Jews persuaded some of their Christian collaborators to join their campaign. Willing church leaders in Switzerland organized a public demonstration in Zurich by 15,000 churchgoers who demanded that the Swiss government and the Swiss bankers give “God’s Chosen People” whatever they wanted and stop accusing the poor, persecuted Jews of blackmail.

The Swiss bankers and the Swiss politicians are a bit more hardheaded than these pale, soft, hymn-singing churchgoers, however. Arguments that God’s Chosen People deserve whatever they want because the Bible says so have little effect on them. The real pressure was being applied to them out of the public’s eye. On January 10, 1997, billionaire Jewish liquor merchant Edgar Bronfman, head of the World Jewish Congress, met with the Swiss ambassador to the United States and threatened him that unless Switzerland coughed up $250 million immediately, the upcoming Congressional hearings by the House Banking Committee would be made as embarrassing as possible for Switzerland.

And other pressure was being applied behind the scenes. A group of New York Jews, claiming to be “Holocaust victims,” brought a class-action suit against three of Switzerland’s largest banks and petitioned the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to suspend the banking licenses of the defendant banks pending the outcome of the lawsuit. If such a petition were granted it would cause the banks to lose billions of dollars.

Israel got into the campaign when the Jewish Agency, headquartered in Jerusalem, hinted that it would call for a worldwide boycott of Swiss banks if the former Swiss president didn’t apologize for characterizing the Jewish campaign as “extortion.” The result of this threat was the apology which had been demanded. And Mr. Clinton’s State Department has been cooperating with the campaign by releasing a series of World War II documents, one every week or so, purporting to show that the Swiss were cozy with the Germans during the war. The release of these documents at this time is clearly a ploy calculated to embarrass Switzerland and put pressure on that country to bow to Jewish demands for more and more money.

The Swiss already have coughed up the $250 million demanded by Bronfman, and now the Jews are indicating that that is just the first payment. They are suggesting that $7 billion may be a reasonable total amount for Switzerland to pay the Jews. And the Jews claim that they can’t understand why so many people hate them!

It is clear in this case that the Jews will go for just as much money as they figure they can extort from the Swiss, and not a shekel less. And it is the shekels which count with them, not how many more people learn to hate them as a consequence of their behavior. That’s the way it’s always been with them. Of course, in this case it’s hard to feel sorry for the Swiss, because they chose to capitulate to the extortion rather than to fight — which is what the Jews calculated they would do. In this democratic era there just don’t seem to be politicians or businessmen anywhere with principles or a sense of honor.

Another interesting example of the Jews’ characteristic of pushing ahead arrogantly with whatever they believe is advantageous to them without any concern for the hatred which their behavior generates came to my attention recently. The great fad these days, the great media-promoted craze, is “diversity,” and Jews are to be found in every nook and cranny of the “diversity” movement. Jews produce the “diversity” propaganda, they agitate for new “diversity” legislation, and they always are pushing to cram more “diversity” down our throats. If they see any group of White people — the residents of an apartment building, students in a school classroom, a sports team, a Saturday-night poker club, any all-White group — they will try to force the group to accept three Zulus, a Chinaman, and a disabled Hispanic lesbian.

The idea, of course, is to exterminate us, to wage genocide against us, to leave us no opportunity to be among our own kind, no opportunity to feel a sense of kinship and belonging among our own people, no opportunity to organize and defend ourselves. They want to be the one and only self-conscious group on this earth able to act intelligently in promoting their group interests, and then the world will belong to them. They’ve been pretty successful so far in their campaign against us. They’ve been successful because they’ve kept their motives moderately well concealed, and they’ve been able to persuade large segments of our own people to collaborate with them in their “diversity” campaign by convincing them that it’s the “moral” thing to do. The hymn-singers are an example.

But sometimes their arrogance just runs away with itself and blows their cover. They put out a newsletter called Managing Diversity, which goes to all of the government agencies in Washington. It tells the bureaucrats how they can increase the amount of “diversity” in their bailiwicks and still keep things under control. It tells them how they can displace more normal, White government workers with Hmong tribesmen, wetbacks, or AIDS-infected alternate life-stylers and still keep the remaining Whites from rebelling.

In addition to this sort of practical advice, Managing Diversity also has a lot of “sensitivity training” articles in its issues: articles which are supposed to be posted for the White workers to read in order to keep them feeling guilty and cowed. An example is a front-page article in a recent issue of Managing Diversity written by Harris Sussman, Ph.D. Doctor Sussman’s article is titled “What Are the Values of White People?” And then this too-clever and too-arrogant Jewish “diversity” promoter turns and bites the very hymn-singers who have collaborated with him and his kind most eagerly. He writes:

It turns out that the white people we are talking about have been primarily Christians, often acting in the name of their Christian values … In the name of Christian values they had the Inquisition. They called native peoples “savages” who did not qualify as human beings. They set up definitions of pagans, heathens, primitives, undeveloped people which left Christians superior and dominant. They killed Jews and Gypsies in the Holocaust.In our post-modern vocabulary, “whites” or “the white man” is all we need to say to invoke this history and experience of injustice and cruelty. When we say “white people,” we mean the people who value things over people, who value money over people. We know exactly what their values are and where they lead. We have all paid a terrible price for those values.

Remember, this is a Jew telling us that we Gentiles are too interested in money. In the same article Doctor Sussman goes on to gloat over what he and his kind already have done to White people with their brainwashing campaign. He gloats over the psychological and spiritual damage his “diversity” campaign already has caused. He crows:

Many white people are uneasy with their own history. They are having a profound identity crisis … This means that many white people do not think of themselves as white people.

He then describes the many ways in which guilt-stricken Whites are trying to escape from their own identity and conform to what Sussman and his fellow Jews want them to be. He writes that many confused White people are trying to “adopt the values of native peoples. Look at ecofeminism, look at holistic health, Earth Day, the Rainbow Gathering.”

Copies of Managing Diversity can be found in every government workplace in Washington. Sussman figures that the hymn-singers will let him kick them in the teeth and then will lick his toes and beg for another kick. And, unfortunately, that’s exactly what many of them will do. There’s a sort of masochistic tendency among many of them. But there are a lot of us White people who aren’t masochists, a lot of us unreconstructed White boys who don’t react to Doctor Sussman and his kind the way they want us to, a lot of us who read what he has to say and then make a pledge to ourselves that one day we’ll rid our society of his poison, no matter what it takes. And, you know, there are some old-fashioned Christians among us too, who will be more than happy to help!

These two examples of Jewish behavior — the brazen extortion of hundreds of millions of dollars from the Swiss people and the arrogant gloating about the damage they have done to us with their “diversity” campaign — these two examples lead us to a closely related subject discussed earlier — the so-called “Holocaust.” We’ve looked at various aspects of “Holocaust” propaganda in the past, and we’ve uncovered some of their little psychological tricks, such as calling anyone who doesn’t swallow the whole myth lock, stock, and barrel a “Holocaust denier.” If you question any of their numbers about how many Jews supposedly were put into gas chambers, if you question a single one of their overblown atrocity stories, then you’re a “Holocaust denier,” implying that you believe that the Germans took no defensive measures at all against the Jews during the Second World War, when, in fact, you know that the Germans did try to rid themselves of Jewish influence.

We’ve examined some of these tricks of theirs, and we’ve explored some of their specific lies about the “Holocaust,” but the question remains: Why do they do it? Why do they push the “Holocaust” business so hard? Why, 55 years after the fact, do they keep playing the same tune? Why do they demand that the American taxpayers provide free land for “Holocaust” museums for them? Why do they demand that our children in the public schools be subjected to “Holocaust” propaganda courses? They are aware that many other peoples have gone through their own “holocausts”: the Armenians, the Germans, the Ukrainians, the Russians. Why is it only the Jews who keep pushing it, only the Jews who make it the focus of their lives, the essential core of their identity?

We know the answer to this question now. We understand that they push the “Holocaust” for two reasons: first, because they make lots and lots of money from it; and second, because it protects them from criticism and enables them to get away with the most outrageous behavior, behavior that would not be tolerated in any other people. They have just collected $250 million in cold, hard cash from the Swiss in blackmail money: money which the Swiss gave to them not because there was the slightest evidence that the Jews were entitled to any of it, but simply to avoid a boycott. Now, the Jews are aiming for $7 billion more from the Swiss the same way.

Anybody else who tried a stunt like that would end up in prison for extortion. The Swiss government wouldn’t have caved in to anybody else. If, for example, the heirs of Russian aristocrats who were butchered by Jewish Communists in the 1920s had made a similar demand on the Swiss bankers for lost assets, the Swiss would have fought them all the way. But they didn’t want to fight the Jews — they even apologized for frankly telling the Jews what they thought about the whole racket — because they knew the Jews would wrap themselves in the “Holocaust” and it would look like the Swiss were picking on the poor, innocent, defenseless, persecuted dears. They knew the Jews had them beat at the propaganda game, at the sympathy game.

That’s just one example of the cash value of the “Holocaust.” Another example is the $4 billion in American taxpayers’ money which goes to Israel every year. Germany has also given Israel billions of dollars over the past 50 years, paid for by German taxpayers.

Or consider Doctor Sussman’s boasting about the damage the Jews’ “diversity” propaganda already has done to the self-image of many gullible White people. Who else but a Jew would have the brass for that? And where does that brass come from? It comes from a sure knowledge that he can retreat into his “victim” status if anyone calls him to account. He knows that he can invoke the “Holocaust,” that he can wrap himself in the “Holocaust,” and his accusers will retreat in embarrassment. At least, the hymn-singers will retreat in embarrassment. And any harder-headed critic of the Jews or their behavior or their influence knows that he will be regarded as a bully by everyone who has been taken in by the “Holocaust” propaganda.

The fact is that we do have a Jewish problem in America. It is by far the biggest and most dangerous problem we have. It is worse than our crime problem, worse than our drug problem, worse than our political corruption problem, worse than our immigration problem, worse even than our race problem. Our Jewish problem, in fact, lies at the root of nearly all of our other problems. If we are to have a future we must solve it. We cannot let ourselves be buffaloed by the “Holocaust.” We must face the fact that, regardless of all the nice, inoffensive Jews you may know as individuals, all of the Jews who mind their own business, the Jews as a whole are destroying our society. Their policies are poison to us. And with their control of our news and entertainment media and their corollary control of our political system, they have a death grip on our country. We must have the courage to stand up to them and to do everything necessary to break that death grip. We must free our media and our government from their influence. We must make an example of the Sussmans and all of their collaborators. Otherwise they will destroy us as surely as they have destroyed every other society in which they were given free rein.

UN Resolution 194 part 2 – The Refugees

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 12, 2006


“A refugee is a person seeking asylum in a foreign country in order to escape persecution, war, terrorism, extreme poverty, famines, and natural disaster. Some regional legal instruments further include those seeking to escape generalized violence in the definition of a refugee. Those who seek refugee status are sometimes known as asylum seekers and the practice of accepting such refugees is that of offering political asylum. The most common asylum claims to industrialized countries are based upon political and religious grounds.” (from Wikipedia)The refugee is a person actively seeking asylum – not his or her children born in the new country or in transit to the new country. This is the definition of a refugee, and by that definition only 1/6 of the Palestinian “refugees” registerd with the UN are actual refugees. And only a third of those are actually refugees from Israel proper. The rest are refugees from Gaza, the Westbank, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon. And they actually hail from these countries, but were expelled or made persona non-grata from and in those countries, by laws passed after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.

“The historian Shmuel Katz in his book ‘Battleground’ [21] argues that the Arab refugees were not driven from Palestine by anyone. The vast majority left, whether of their own free will or at the orders or exhortations of their leaders, always with the same reassurance-that their departure would help in the war against Israel. The [Palestinian]Arabs are the only declared refugees who became refugees not by the action of their enemies or because of well-grounded fear of their enemies, but by the initiative of their own leaders. For nearly a generation, those leaders have willfully kept as many people as they possibly could in degenerating squalor, preventing their rehabilitation, and holding out to all of them the hope of return and of “vengeance” on the Jews of Israel, to whom they have transferred the blame for their plight. Haled al Azm, the Syrian Prime Minister 1948-49, stated the following in his memoirs. “Since 1948 we have been demanding the return of the refugees to their homes. But we ourselves are the ones who encouraged them to leave. Only a few months separated our call to them to leave and our appeal to the United Nations to resolve on their return.” From Wikipedia

In fact, the above Arab countries were forbidden by the Arab League to accept Palestinians as legal citizens in any Arab country. Jordan is the only country which has historically granted citzenship to the Palestinian Arabs, before 1948 – Now why on earth would the Arab League do such a thing? ““to avoid dissolution of their identity and protect their right to return to their homeland” hm, sounds fishy, considering that 80% of the people who identify as “Palestinians” actually are JORDANIANS – yes, 80% of the land area that made up the Brittish Palestinian Mandate before 1948, was annexed by the Hashmenites and turned into Jordania – over the heads of the Palestinian Arabs.

But off course all of this is the doing of Israel…and you cannot believe one word of what I have said here, because it was said by a Jew, as a part of a secret and devilish plan to accomplish Jewish World domination.

Shalom!

Fighting the Dragon

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 12, 2006


I came across these “informative” videos and left the encounter feeling as if I am fighting a 200 year old Dragon that, when I thought it was reduced to merely a head in my part of the world, it turns out that it merely emigrated…Children being indoctrinated…

Hatred from the Imam…

It is a wonder and a miracle that Israel is not being more violent than she is..

Shalom!

The Orange

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 11, 2006


Someone asked me this Question:
“should the palestinian people be erradicated in order for israel to be a state?”
My very simple answer is NO. What saddens me is that the people asking this Question don’t hear the answer, because they are so entrenched in the idea that if you think Israel has a right to exist you must automatically think the Palestinian People doesn’t have that same right.

They don’t see the stream of “cause and effect” – they only see one side, and only half of one side – the don’t see the other half of “their side” and they definitely do not see any of the halves of the “opposite side”.

They don’t see that it takes two to tango, and that for every action there is a re-action. Therefore they do not see that a Palestinian State and a Jewish State is not mutually exclusive. There is only one Orange, so the two brothers will have to share – the Orange was cut 60 years ago – there is no putting the two halves back together, because one of the brothers have already dug out the seeds in his half and have planted the seeds to grow an Orange Grove – it isn’t his fault that the other brother have not done the same.

Nor is it his fault that the other brother has spent these last 60 years protesting that the Orange was cut instead of busying himself with finding the seeds and grow an Orange Grove. Had he busied himself with taking care of his half of the Orange, instead of incessantly burglarize his brother’s Orange Grove and kill the workers, he would have had a beautiful Orange Grove today, just like his brother.

But his lot is empty, and he blames his brother for that, he doesn’t see that he himself is responsible for that. That what damage has been done to his lot when his brother had to chase him out of his Orange Grove, was the result of him not wanting leave his brother’s Orange Grove workers alone, and having to be dragged kicking and screaming of the lot into his own or down to the City Jail.

He doesn’t see, and he never will, if he insists on staring at the shivelled up remains of the half Orange, he was given, refusing to pick up the seeds and use them as his brother has.

No-one is going to do it for him – he has to get rid of the street-thugs he has hired to burglarize his brother and focus on hiring workers that can plant his Orange Seeds and work the Orange Grove that will grow from them.

And if he doesn’t it’s not his brother’s fault.

Shalom!

The Most Conspiratory Conspiracies of them all

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 11, 2006


The world is in shambles, people are suffering in every country, the governments only tell us what they want us to know, and they rig the elections so the “right” guy will win every time, gay marriages are being named acceptable by the g’dless atheists, there’s death and starvation in Africa, nuclear weapons in Pakistan and India, political oppression in China, Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan, and off course in Palestine. Russia’s biggest oil company is bancrupt, mosques are being burnt in Scandinavia, the Intenational Air travel is being threatened by terrorists that are really hired by CIA and MI5 to hide that Israel wants to expand all the way to China, Iran refuses to comply with the UN, the US refuses to pay their dues to the UN, Kofi Annan is a thief, the children in Sudan are dying, countless animals are being used for experiments, the vegetables we eat have lost more than 2/3 of their nutrients, the hosts of ACH actually believe that there is such a thing as jewish nukes, the media in Canada is owned by Zionists. Mordechai Vanunu was an Israeli plant, to feed the World false information about those Jewish Nukes, the Forrests are burning in St. Petersburg, and your mother lied to you about masturbation…of course all this must be the doings of a World Wide Jewish Plot! What else could it be?! It’s all the Evil Jews’ fault!But of course you can’t believe a word of this, because a Jew said it.

Shalom!

Pro-Isms vs. Anti-Isms

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 8, 2006


Something struck me yesterday, when contemplating the Raging War between the those in support of Israel and those opposed to Israel.

The pattern of reasoning, the techniques used to propagate the ideas of each side, the deceptions, the selective reading of arguments that don’t fit the own view etc., is the same regardless of what you put after the “pro-” and the “anti-” It places the pro and the anti at opposite ends of a linear scale where 0 is the position of not taking sides.There can never be understanding, compromise, openmindedness and peace where there is polarization. Like I said in another Blog-entry “Extremism is the opposite of Truth.”

I usually get accused by the Anti-Israeli Camp of being Anti-Palestinian. When the truth is that I am Pro-Both.*lol*

That is really interesting – it seems that if you consider yourself to be Anti-Something you a more or less assume that “the opposition” is Anti-SomethingOther. While those who are Pro Something, usually think that their “opposition” is Pro-SomethingOther.

Negative thinking and Positive thinking…

No-one seem to be able to contemplate the possibility of changing the approach. Of thinking that perhaps it’s possinble to be Pro both Something and SomethingOther, without having to compromise.

If the General Scale looks like this:

Then you can apply it to anything – and place the Pro and the Anti at each end – now imagine that you place your Pro at the end of one scale and the “other’s” position at the PRO end of another scale – like this:
See what happened? Your position and the position of “the Other” is exactly the same. This is Absolute Equal – not being in the middle of the scale. By applying this “Dual Scale Model” it is possible to be equally pro or anti two seemingly opposite positions.

The best of it all is that you get rid of the polarization.

It seems to me that if you look at the pictures and think about the + and the – what you find is that those who position themselves on the AntiSomething/AntiSomething Other end up in Negative thinking, while those who take position of ProSomething/ProSomethingOther end up in Positive thinking. The former negate both, while the latter affirm both. The Anti-People don’t get either. The Pro-People get both.

Shalom!

Why is Jerusalem Still Burning?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 6, 2006


Consider and reflect upon an astonishing thing: Everything happens in its time for the good. The portions which we always read during the Three Weeks, Matos, Massei and Devorim, discuss the victory of Israel over the nations and the division of the Land – the diametric opposite of the terrible events that happened during this time . Sometimes we also read Pinchas during this period, which discusses all the holidays… related to the fact that in the future “these days will be transformed into joy and gladness and holidays” (Zechariah 8:19) – Shaloh Mesechta Taanit.As the Middle East enters a second week of war with Israeli troops expanding their operations in Southern Lebanon launching a ground assault against its sworn enemy Hezbollah – and our hearts and prayers go out to all innocent lives being lost – its hard to ignore the connection to this period in time when we remember the war destruction of Jerusalem two millennia ago by the Babylonians and then again by the Romans.

No one is disputing the fact that the Hezbollah attack against Israel – and indeed the entire existence of the Hezbollah – is founded on the principle of conquering Israel and is being fueled, funded and armed by Syria and Iran – the location of ancient Babylon, which at its height included the land that is now Syria and a large part of Iran (Persia).

Babylon of old attacked Israel. So did the empires of Assyria, Persia, Ptolemy, Rome, Byzantine, the Crusaders, the Arabs and Ottomans. And the same story is now being replayed in the same geographical area – is this a coincidence?

After 2428 years since the Babylonian destruction and 1938 years since the Roman destruction of the Holy Temple why is Jerusalem still burning?

And what can we do about it?

As we compare this most recent conflict with previous ones, striking parallels and differences stand out.

The most obvious parallel is the never-ending battle over this small piece of geography called Israel.

But what is far more striking – and disturbing – are some of the unique differences that distinguish the current battle from previous ones.

One of the most obvious issues today is the lack of strong leadership and clear moral direction. Yes, every normal person or country agrees that Israel has a right to defend itself from wanton attacks on its innocent citizens. But is that enough?

We still hear questions whether Israel is responding in “disproportionate” measure. For some reason, many people are questioning whether this is a justifiable war? Why? Would the same be said if, for instance, terrorists were launching unprovoked missiles from Algeria to France, or from Mexico to the United States?

Is it possible that Israel is being second0guessed because Israel itself is suffering from an identity crisis and lack of clarity? Yes, under attack all of Israel is united in the commitment to defend itself at all costs. But the haunting questions remains: The six million Jews living in Israel are surrounded by hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims most of whom (if not all) do not want Israel there. If they had there way, and there was no military deterrent, a large number of them would actually support the elimination of the Jewish State (G-d forbid) and even those that may not go to war against Israel would not be greatly disturbed if Israel ceased to be.

In such a hostile environment what good reason is there for Jews to live in Israel, surrounded by millions of enemies? If you moved to a neighborhood with high hopes for a comfortable life and then the neighborhood deteriorates, what would most people do? They would move to another neighborhood.

Is it possible that many are wondering the same about the Jews in Israel? Do Israelis themselves have this question? And if they do, what is the answer.

Another unprecedented factor in the current battle is the new type of war being fought. Previous wars involved defined nations, with defined borders and clear targets. A war against terrorists – whether it is in Baghdad, Lebanon, Gaza, London or New York City – poses a new set of challenges: Whom exactly are you fighting? Where is the enemy located? This type of war requires new terms of engagement.

Why is it that Israel’s victory in 1967 against four major countries, Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Iraq took only six days, and now their battle against one upstart terrorist organization is already over 9 days old and far from ending?

Some would argue, that a war against defined countries is far easier to fight than one against terrorists embedded in tunnels and caves within a countries infrastructure, hiding behind civilian shields, with arsenals dug in beneath hospitals and schools. Other may contend that the six-day war was A Divine miracle.

Another factor may be that it is far easier to win a war when there is strong leadership, and an army passionately motivated by a defined vision and goal – as it was in the war of 1948 and 1967. Does that passion exist today?

Years of slow-bleeding battles and relentless terrorist attacks have worn down many people. The ultimate question is this: Why in the first place are Jews living in a hostile neighborhood?

And even if you have an answer, what is the game-plan? How will this all end?
Questions abound. Many questions indeed.

But we are never abandoned in our questions and doubts. The Jewish people have been here before. Throughout their long history of persecution, their ultimate solace and strength came from the Torah, called the Torah of life – a blueprint to face every challenge in life.

During the Three Weeks of destruction we read in the Torah chapters that address the issues swirling around Israel and Jerusalem under siege – as the Shaloh writes in the opening quote of this article: The portions which we always read during the Three Weeks, Matos, Massei and Devorim, discuss the victory of Israel over the nations and the division of the Land – the diametric opposite of the terrible events that happened during this time .

Barely a consolation, yet the battle over Jerusalem is not new. And by looking at the past we can learn much for the present and future.

This Shabbat we also bless the month of Av. Av consists of two letters: Alef and bet – an acronym for the two nations that destroyed the two temples: Adom (the Roman Empire) and Babylon.

Our troubles in the Middle East did not begin today. They are an extension of unresolved forces unleashed millennia ago – events that set in motion a series of conflicts that plague us to this very day.

Edom (Rome) is the Western, Christian world – descendants of Esau. Babylon is the Eastern, Arab, Muslim world – descendants of Ishmael. All global confrontations are a result of the strange bedfellows created back in the home of Abraham (see Abraham’s Vision).

So what does all of this have to do with current events? How do historical roots help us deal with our present challenges?

The three chapters we read during these Three Weeks contain some answers:

Pinchas – Healthy Passion

Pinchas is the only zealot ever condoned in the Torah. Pinchas took a stand against a public atrocity and killed the perpetrators, consequently saving thousands of lives. Pinchas is subsequently rewarded with the “covenant of peace.”

What does this teach us about modern day zealotry and its dangers? Haven’t we learned our lessons over history of the grave destruction perpetrated in the name of G-d by religious extremists?!

As discussed at length in a previous article (Religious Violence), Pinchas was the ultimate model of a peaceful warrior: When confronted with cruelty some people shy away in fear, others become morally ambivalent and yet others become radical zealots, mercilessly killing innocent people in the name of (distorted) faith.

Comes Pinchas the man of peace and tells us that there is another option: No extremes, no bringing in your own personal prejudices and feelings of aggression or passivity, violence or comfort zones. Pinchas teaches us simple selflessness to protect and defend innocent lives. Zealousness – but in peace.

What we learn from Pinchas is the exact opposite of killing in the name of religious zealotry. Violence against other people, especially innocent ones, can never be tolerated – no matter what its cause. Any justification of violence, whether it is in the name of religion or in the name of fighting for a cause, is unequivocally deplorable and goes against the laws of G-d. Anger and murder resulting from religious feelings is perhaps the most dangerous of all, because the “holy war” helps mask the venting of personal aggression.

On the other hand, Pinchas teaches us, just because religion has been abused and used to perpetrate atrocities we shouldn’t fall to the other extreme of not fighting for any values. We must never lose sight of right and wrong, but at the same time we must learn from the past how to fight for it with selfless passion.

What is needed today is passion – but guided by humility. G-d – but guided by love and compassion. We need a zealot today. A true Pinchas that will rise and defy conventional thinking. Not a murderous zealot but a zealot of peace.

Today we are called to join forces in a zealous and passionate against all form of extremism and violence, including those perpetrated in the name of religious zealotry. To counter the passion of misguided souls ready to blow themselves up, we need to zealously defend and promote the Divine principles of justice and peace – and all in the spirit of unity and love fueled by selflessness.

Matos-Massei – Fortitude in the journey

“Matos” (in Hebrew) are stiff, firm rods. “Massei” are journeys, referring to the forty-two journeys of the Israelites through the Sinai Wilderness on their way to the Promised Land.

Life is a journey – a series of journeys – toward the Promised Land. Indeed, the Baal Shem Tov explains that each of us goes through 42 journeys in our lives.

The journey toward the Promised Land (even when we may be living there) is a difficult one – as witnessed time and again throughout history. We therefore need the “Matos” in our “Massei” – an unwavering fortitude, based on deep faith that gives us the relentless power to forge ahead despite regardless of the adversary.

Life can be difficult, very difficult. The only power to counter all our hardships and enemies comes from a profound, unwavering, connection to knowing the purpose of our lives and knowing without a shred of doubt that our fight is just; an absolute, unbending (“Mattos”) moral certainty in our calling, and the resulting absolute determination to see the journey through.

Where do we get this fortitude? From Devorim – Divine words

“These are the words which Moses spoke…”

The fifth book of the Torah documents the words that Moses spoke to the people in the last 37 days of his time on Earth: “These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel beyond the Jordan in the wilderness, in the Arabah over against Suph, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.”

Moses was the ultimate leader. Knowing that he has a short time to live, and recognizing the difficult challenges laying ahead, Moses – as a true leader – delivers his final words in order to imbue the people – then and in all generation to come – with the strength and confidence to forge ahead and tackle every possible issue. Moses examines the events that occurred over the last 40 years since they left Egypt, he discusses the relationship the Jews had established with G-d, G-d’s instructions to them, and he encourages them to carry on these teachings for the generations to come.

More specifically, Moses reviews the difficult journey of the Jewish people toward the Promised Land and reaffirms the reason for their journey – to forge an invincible bond with G-d that will empower the people to transform the material universe into a Divine home. Moses offers the Jewish nation strong words of encouragement and direction that by holding on to their connection to the Divine they will be able to face any challenge, no matter how difficult.

Moses’ words live on forever. Especially in time of war and challenge we need the powerful, unwavering words of Moses to infuse us with hope, courage and direction.

Above all, Moses’ words state the ultimate – and only – justification for the Jewish presence in Israel today:

“Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which G-d swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to them and to their seed after them” (Deuteronomy 1:8).

“Israel, listen to the laws and rules that I am teaching you to do, so that you will remain alive and come to occupy the land that G-d is giving you (4:1). Safeguard and keep them since this is your wisdom and understanding in the eyes of the nations (4:6). Only take heed and watch yourself very carefully, so that you do not forget the things that your eyes saw. Do not let leave your hearts, all the days of your lives. Teach your children and children’s children” (4:9).

And the end game?

“G-d will then bring back your remnants and have mercy on you. G-d will once again gather you from among all the nations where He scattered you… bring you to the land that your ancestors occupied. G-d will be good to you and make you flourish even more than your ancestors” (30:3-5).

Meanwhile – Moses concludes – “be strong and brave” (31:6).

It’s amazing that after all these years the secret to redemption eludes us but still remains in our hands: “Zion will be redeemed with Law and its captives with righteousness” (Isaiah 1:27. Haftorah of Shabbat Chazon).

Torah study and charitable righteous deeds will redeem Zion and its hostages.

How much longer will Jerusalem burn? That’s up to us.

UNDECLARED WWIII – Part 1

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 6, 2006


I came across an excellent speech by the former President of Weizmann Institute of Science, Haim Harari.UNDECLARED WWIII
By Haim Harari

“As you know, I usually provide the scientific and technological “entertainment” in our meetings, but, on this occasion, our Chairman suggested that I present my own personal view on events in the part of the world from which I come. I have never been and I will never be a Government official and I have no privileged information. My perspective is entirely based on what I see, on what I read and on the fact that my family has lived in this region for almost 200 years. You may regard my views as those of the proverbial taxi driver, which you are supposed to question, when you visit a country.

I could have shared with you some fascinating facts and some personal thoughts about the Israeli-Arab conflict. However, I will touch upon it only in passing. I prefer to devote most of my remarks to the broader picture of the region and its place in world events. I refer to the entire area between Pakistan and Morocco, which is predominantly Arab, predominantly Moslem, but includes many non-Arab and also significant non-Moslem minorities.

Why do I put aside Israel and its own immediate neighborhood? Because Israel and any problems related to it, in spite of what you might read or hear in the world media, is not the central issue, and has never been the central issue in the upheaval in the region. Yes, there is a 100 year-old Israeli-Arab conflict, but it is not where the main show is. The millions who died in the Iran-Iraq war had nothing to do with Israel. The mass murder happening right now in Sudan, where the Arab Moslem regime is massacring its black Christian citizens, has nothing to do with Israel. The frequent reports from Algeria about the murders of hundreds of civilian in one village or another by other Algerians have nothing to do with Israel. Saddam Hussein did not invade Kuwait, endangered Saudi Arabia and butchered his own people because of Israel. Egypt did not use poison gas against Yemen in the 60’s because of Israel. Assad the Father did not kill tens of thousands of his own citizens in one week in El Hamma in Syria because of Israel. The Taliban control of Afghanistan and the civil war there had nothing to do with Israel. The Libyan blowing up of the Pan-Am flight had nothing to do with Israel, and I could go on and on and on.”

One of the prevailing ideas put forward, especially by the Left and Far Left, is that Israel is the root of all evil that takes place in the Middle-East. It is being bought whole-sale by the media to such a degree that it is hard to come by any OBJECTIVE news on the Topic – this is especially true in Europe (that it is true about the news in the Arab speaking world goes without saying.) where the attitudes towards Israel has always been less than amiable.

If the assertion that Israel is behind every evil that happens in the Middle-East is even remotely true – then it is logical to assume that Israel wouldn’t be doing much else but plotting evil against it’s neighbors. The social and economic standard of Israel compared to it’s neighbors in the same region (who incidently have the same climate, soil capacity and other unpredictables to struggle with) indicates that Israel is spending its time working hard at harnessing its resources – how can it do that if it is primarily occupied with plotting against its neighbors? The answer is – it isn’t plotting anything. The answer comes in the next paragraph:

“The root of the trouble is that this entire Moslem region is totally dysfunctional, by any standard of the word, and would have been so even if Israel would have joined the Arab league and an independent Palestine would have existed for 100 years. The 22 member countries of the Arab league, from Mauritania to the Gulf States, have a total population of 300 millions, larger than the US and almost as large as the EU before its expansion. They have a land area larger than either the US or all of Europe. These 22 countries, with all their oil and natural resources, have a combined GDP smaller than that of Netherlands plus Belgium and equal to half of the GDP of California alone. Within this meager GDP, the gaps between rich and poor are beyond belief and too many of the rich made their money not by succeeding in business, but by being corrupt rulers. The social status of women is far below what it was in the Western World 150 years ago. Human rights are below any reasonable standard, in spite of the grotesque fact that Libya was elected Chair of the UN Human Rights commission. According to a report prepared by a committee of Arab intellectuals and published under the auspices of the U.N., the number of books translated by the entire Arab world is much smaller than what little Greece alone translates. The total number of scientific publications of 300 million Arabs is less than that of 6 million Israelis. Birth rates in the region are very high, increasing the poverty, the social gaps and the cultural decline. And all of this is happening in a region, which only 30 years ago, was believed to be the next wealthy part of the world, and in a Moslem area, which developed, at some point in history, one of the most advanced cultures in the world.”

Saladin the Great is most likely spinning wildly in his grave. He left behind him a vast Empire that flourished not just economically, but culturally and spiritually – and what is left of all that wealth? Nothing but burnt tatters. As Mr Harari says – it’s all very dysfunctional. A few are mooching off of the many. Where is all that Science the Arabs became famous for? Why is it that Arabs go to Europe or the US to study Medicine, Law, Science and Economics? According to History that shouldn’t be necessary – they should infact be teaching us – like they taught us mathematics…yet the rate of literacy is only between 0-79%…

“It is fair to say that this creates an unprecedented breeding ground for cruel dictators, terror networks, fanaticism, incitement, suicide murders and general decline. It is also a fact that almost everybody in the region blames this situation on the United States, on Israel, on Western Civilization, on Judaism and Christianity, on anyone and anything, except themselves.”

What is even more flagrant is that they have quite ordinary, thinking and logical people out-side the Middle East blame their problems on everything but those who are really to blame – themselves and their leaders. The Far Left’s almost religiously fanatic repetion of lies and propaganda is a very good example of this. – this despite the fact that they are often the most extremely conservative adherents of Right-Wing ideas and attitudes.

“Do I say all of this with the satisfaction of someone discussing the failings of his enemies? On the contrary, I firmly believe that the world would have been a much better place and my own neighborhood would have been much more pleasant and peaceful, if things were different.”

I keep thinking of the Ottoman Empire at it’s very peak – when the Arab Culture produced more art, literature, music, philosophy and science than any other Civilization ever before. And how in it’s decline it seems to have taken with it, not only the above productivity, but it’s very soul, and replaced it with a desperate hopelessness among the little people, that is being exploited by those who wish nothing but destruction.

“I should also say a word about the millions of decent, honest, good people who are either devout Moslems or are not very religious but grew up in Moslem families. They are double victims of an outside world, which now develops Islamophobia and of their own environment, which breaks their heart by being totally dysfunctional. The problem is that the vast silent majority of these Moslems are not part of the terror and of the incitement but they also do not stand up against it. They become accomplices, by omission, and this applies to political leaders, intellectuals, business people and many others. Many of them can certainly tell right from wrong, but are afraid to express their views.”

It is really, really sad.

Shalom!
