Another Jewish reason to oppose Militant Zionism

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 26, 2007


One of the principle motivations of the US foreign policy that backs every Israeli move, no matter how morally bankrupt, is the pathological belief by many evangelical Americans that all of Palestine must be incorporated into a greater Israel, that’s the only way the Rapture can happen. But what happens after the Rapture? Though I couldn’t find it in the Wikipedia explanation, I got it here.

Most Fundamentalist and other conservative Christians believe that The Rapture will occur when Christ first returns towards earth. Most believe that Christ will not actually land or stay on earth at this time; the “real” second coming will occur later, when he returns on a horse leading an army on horseback who will exterminate one third of the earth’s population in a massive genocide. It will be numerically the largest mass extermination of humans in history. In terms of the percentage of humans to be killed in a genocide, it will be second only to the flood of Noah.”


If for nothing else – to oppose this blasphemous, murderous idolatry, that not only aspire to genocide, but is targeting uneducated, secular Jews for their “missionary work”, and claim they are the true heirs of Avraham.So, opposing the idea of a Greater Israel is not just a matter of moral and ethics from a Torah point of view – but a matter of avoiding another Shoah – because that is exactly what those Xtians want – any Jew who does not convert to Xtianism will and should be exterminated by their “g-d”.

Refugee Camps…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 16, 2007


Palestinian Refugee Camp in Lebanon

Those are HOUSES, even multi Story Houses – they have real walls made of concrete, real roofs and STREETS in between them – yet they are called Refugee Camps. Compare those to this image of “buildings” in a Darfur Refugee camp

At best those “buildings” are mud-huts with tarp roofs…

Here are some suffering, malnourished Palestinian Children “getting no education” the

marka-in-jordan.jpg

Here some happy, smiling, healthy Palestinian Children are playing in the courtyard of a House in Marka “Refugee Camp”, a house much like this one in Talbieh “Refugee Camp”

Talbieh was set up on an area of about 130,000 square metres, 35 km south of Amman. Tents were donated by the Iranian Red Lion and Sun Society, who later replaced them with concrete “shelters” – that as you can see are actually HOUSES – much unlike the real shelters used by the real refugees in Darfur.

Baqa’a:
Due to the harsh winters in Jordan UNRWA replaced the tents with 8,048 prefabricated shelters between 1969-1971 with special contributions from the Federal Republic of Germany. Most of the camp’s inhabitants have since then constructed more durable concrete shelters to replace the prefabs.
Eyewitness account from the Baqa’a “Refugee” Camp:

“It was with some apprehension that I walked behind the façade of the storefronts and into the camp proper. I was surprised to find a reasonable standard of roading and footpaths, and what appeared from the outside to be housing that was adequate in terms of warmth, shelter, security – sort of reminiscent of our state house units, only built from crude bricks and stones and some significantly more crowded. Certainly an equal amount of “tagging”, which is equally hard to decipher in Arabic or English.”[…]”Many of the refugees are unable to gain permanent employment outside the camps, although some do appear to have very good jobs and incomes. Some of the residents own cars, including some fairly new-looking Mercedes, so life is not totally grim or fruitless.”[…]”It seems that around half the population of this particular camp, Baqa’a, were children under about 15. Schooling is seen as very important and the children generally appeared happy and healthy and were fluent in Arabic and English.[…]This couple had both attended school through to age 14 within the camp, and had a variety of work, and still both work fulltime. The extended family lives mostly together, and have a “joint family” car, a humble 1980s Toyota. Two of their children have obtained Jordanian citizenship and live and work outside the camp.”

Marka:
The tented camp was set up on an area of about 917,000 square metres, 10 km north east of Amman. The Agency’s plans to provide stronger tents to withstand the harsh winters were dropped in favour of the construction of prefabricated shelters, and 4,000 were built between 1969-1971 with support from the Federal Republic of Germany, the Government of Italy, the Jordan Development Bank, and the Near East Emergency Donations. Most of the camp’s inhabitants have since replaced the prefabs with more durable concrete “shelters” like this four story House in Rafah, in the Gaza Strip. This is the “Refugee Camp” Baqa’a in Jordan:

Baqa’a Refugee Camp

After seeing these pictures it’s hard to believe that the majority of Palestinian “Refugee” Camps are anything but ordinary Arab Cities/Towns – like the Center of Sanaa?

Minaret in Saana

Or this in Al-Shatti/Shati Beach in the Gaza Strip,

alshatti.jpg

the home Town of Ishmail Haniayeh, the former Prime Minister of Palestine – what a horrible place indeed! Really, who are they trying to fool?

The world of course – by claiming that they in third and fourth generations are refugees or displaced like their grandparents, they suck sympathy from the Western World, Help Organizations and feed us stories about how horrible the conditions are in the “Refugee Camps” – and that might have been true right after the 1948 and 1967 wars – but now it is certainly a crock of goat manure.

On the matter of Anti-Semitism

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 11, 2007


The matter of if some people are Anti-Semites or not – that issue originally came up in HRN after one poster repeatedly expressed himself in a manner that was clearly Anti-Semitic, and it got progressively worse as this was pointed out. For me the Issue of Israel/Palestine, as a matter of discussion doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with Anti-Semitism per se. But when Anti-Semitic sentiments, expressions and ideas are laid open in such discussions, I again see it as my human duty to object. Unfortunately for some, there are strong elements of Anti-Semitism in what is generally called Anti-Zionism. When such elements surface, I again see it as my human duty to point this out and object.

It is rather easy to see why there would be Anti-Semitic sentiments incorporated in Anti-Zionism. It is rather logical – Zionism in its simplest form is the political, and for some religious, struggle to create and maintain a National Homeland for the Jewish people. To be against this, i.e to be Anti-Zionist, ultimately means that one is against the rights of the Jewish People to have a Homeland, a Nationality, something that is clearly stated in UDHR Article 15 “Everyone has the right to a nationality.” Thus one is ultimately against the Jewish People, because one wants to deny them their human rights.

It is regrettable that the Left, which has traditionally stood for equal rights for all, has in so many ways become allies with the Right on the issue of the Jewish People. I am fully aware that this is not true for most people on the Left, but it is certainly true for the Radical Far Left. In its endeavor to bring justice to the Palestinians and make sure they got their Homeland, the Far Left forgot that on both sides are People with the same basic rights.

While one can justifiably and rightly bring criticism against the Israeli Government and those that command the IDF – and believe it or not, Israelis are usually the first to do so, which can be seen in the current National Criticism of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defence Minister Amir Peretz, holding ALL Israelis, ALL Jews and ANYONE who choose to support the idea of a Jewish National Home responsible for the actions of a few can hardly be called justifiable or right. It is this that makes the Anti-Zionism embraced by the Radical Far Left Anti-Semitic, and those holding to those ideas Anti-Semites.

As is often the case with Radical Movements, the Radical Far Left uses bigger words, harsher tones, extreme hyperbole, inaccurate comparisons and one-sided arguments when they want to bring the issue of Israel/Palestine to the fore. In doing so they risk stepping over a line that, whether they intend to or not put them in the same boat with the Extreme Far Right on the issue of the Jewish People. It is not uncommon that information is collected from Web Sites and Literature that is used by both Movements. Nor is it uncommon that information is collected from Web Sites that, without being directly connected to the Far Right, use the same Anti-Semitic jargong as those. One such examlpe of similarities in argumentation and sentiments is Jewwatch.com and Ziopedia.org – the former is decidely Extreme Far Right, the latter is decidedly Extreme Far Left – and both contain similar lists of Anti-Semitic documents, such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

By allying itself with the Extreme Far Right in this manner, the Radical Far Left looses not just its credibility as a voice for Human Rights for ALL, but it also in many ways become that which its claims to be objecting to. There really was no difference between The Dictatorship of General Franco and the Dictatorship of Chaiman Mao, in terms of Anti-Semitism and Human Rights.

It is ironic that many of the first Leftists were Jewish, because if they were alive today I doubt they would recognize very much of their ideas in what has become the Radical Far Left.

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!

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!

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!
