Palestinian homicide bomber murders one and wounds 9 Israelis (04.23.2003)


Palestinian TerrorismTo prove that the Palestinians are serious about not implementing any peace agreement, a Palestinian murderer has killed one and wounded nine in another homicide bombing:

A security guard was killed and nine other people were wounded, one of them seriously on Thursday morning in a suicide bomb attack at the entrance to the Kfar Sava train station, northeast of Tel Aviv. [...]

The bomber detonated explosives at the entrance to the station at about 7:20 a.m. local time, as Israelis waited on the platform for a train, witnesses said. He set off the bomb earlier than planned after a security guard spotted him and demanded to see hi identity papers, Sharon region police commander Amichai Shai said. [...]

The entire entrance of the brand new station was blown away by the blast and pieces of twisted metal hung from the ceiling. Pieces of glass were strewn as far as 30 meters away.


The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades reject peace and the existence of the State of Israel. They call for the genocide for all Israeli Jewish citizens and are responsible for thousands of attacks against women and children.

Letter from an Israeli soldier to his parents (11.22.2002)


VictimsLt. Dan Cohen was one of the soldiers killed by Palestinian terrorists in Hebron last week (click here for more details). His parents have found the following farewell letter:

”Does one human being have a purpose?

The world exists for something that has yet to come, that is yet to happen, and every one of us is an essential part of the development of the world and of humanity with a view to that exalted something.

Therefore, what is required of everyone, and in actual fact the purpose of life, is to be a part of the puzzle in the best way he can. This means that someone who walks the path of the religious Jew must carry out the Jewish religion in the most effective way so as to make the generations that follow better than him, by influencing his descendants and his environment.

I must belong to the part that is meant to influence its environment, and you belong to the part that influenced (as in influence and in abundance [same root in Hebrew – I.J.]) its descendants. I just wanted to tell you that I am quite happy/contented with what I have accomplished in the limited time frame allotted to me, and that I feel that I was a quite good “Shofar” [traditional: a ram’s horn used in Jewish rituals; here used figuratively, meaning mouthpiece – I.J.] for the way you educated me and that I can’t think of a better way to bring up a child than the way you brought me up (well, maybe you spoiled me a bit…).

In my meager experience I have seen that the people who usually break in an irreparable way as a result of bereavement, are the people who have some feelings of guilt. Although you have no reason, I know you well enough (especially Mom), to know that you may regret some things that you did or didn’t do, that you said or didn’t say. I just wanted you to know that you really did do everything right, and besides short breaks, I have been happy/contented for over twenty years, and I just want to say thank you!

Danny”


Thanks to Imshin for the translation. May God bless his memory.

80% of Israeli fatalities are unarmed civilians, most Palestinian fatalities are armed violent men (08.10.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismThe International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism (www.ict.org.il) has published a statistical analysis of Palestinian and Israeli fatalities since Arafat and his thugs refused peace and started to murder unarmed Israeli civilians in October of 2000.

Here are some interesting facts:





* 80% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants, unarmed civilians.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were women.
* 2% of the Israeli fatalities were killed by Israeli actions, by mistake.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants over the age of 39.





* 54% of the Palestinian fatalities were combattants, mostly armed men.
* 3% of the Palestinian fatalities were women.
* 14% of the Palestinian fatalities were killed by the Palestinians themselves, for "collaborating" with the enemy.
* 5% of the Palestinian fatalities victims were non-combattants over the age of 39.

Most media outlets will report something like this: "The latest clashes in the Middle East have claimed the lives of 1574 Palestinians and 599 Israelis".

This moral equivalency of mixing up armed Palestinian terrorists, whose goal is to murder unarmed civilians, with Israeli women and kids, whose crime is simply to breathe, is shocking.

I copy below the breakdown of Fatalities from 9/27/2000 through 8/6/2002. For a more detailed statistical analysis of the fatalities, see also "An Engineered Tragedy: Statistical Analysis of Fatalities".

Cuomo, candidate for governor of New York, calls Arafat's Palestinian Authority a terror organization (08.08.2002)


NewsThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Andrew Cuomo, a candidate for governor of New York, declared that the Palestinian Authority (Arafat's make shift government in the West Bank and Gaza), should be defined as a foreign terrorist organization.

"I have told the Secretary of State [Colin Powell] that it is my belief that the PA should be added to the list of foreign terror organizations," Cuomo said Thursday during a visit to the bombed-out cafeteria at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Donning a black kippa at the site of the July 31 bombing that killed seven people, including five Americans, Cuomo lit a memorial candle and paused in silence at the makeshift memorial set up at the Nancy Reagan Plaza just outside the site of the attack at the Frank Sinatra pavilion.

"Your fight against terror is our fight against terror," Cuomo said in brief remarks at the site, university president Menachem Magidor and vice president Moshe Arad at his side.


More and more people are realizing how much Arafat and his thugs from the Palestinian Authority finance, organize and support the deliberate murder of unarmed civilians, including babies and children.

The evidence is so overwhelming that you have to be an European leftist or an American ultra-liberal to continue in denying that Arafat is a terrorist. Arafat and the PA are no different than the Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Hizbullah who are proud of murdering babies and unarmed civilians.

Radio: Interviews in Israel and the West Bank (12.08.2002)


MultimediaBefore the Palestinians escalated their terrorist attacks and deliberate murder of Israeli women and children in October 2000, I used to listen to NPR (National Public Radio) quite often. Since then, I have experienced first hand NPR's bias, distortion of truth and support of Palestinian terrorism many times, causing my interest in the radio network and my donations to stop.

One of the programs I used to enjoy every weekend was "This American Life". Every week the producer of the show, Ira Glass, picks a topic and builds an episode using 2-3 stories from different writers and performers. It has a unique style, breaking from straight news reporting to more personal descriptions by the authors.



A radio show about Israel and the West Bank
"This American Life", 8/2/2002


A few weeks ago, This American Life featured a show on Israel and the West Bank, called "Give It to Them". The bias is shown right there - the show's main page has with a big sticker with the Hebrew saying "Nahzir Lahem Veshalom al Israel". This literally means "We'll return it to them, and peace to Israel" - in other words, we'll react to their terrorist attacks and hit them back, and once we get rid of the Palestinian terrorists, we'll have peace.

Unfortunately NPR decided to translate it simply as "Give it to them" - showing that Israelis are the agressors, initiating the conflict. Further samples of bias were shown in the program when they interview two Israelis trying to decided if the Palestinians were born animals, or if they became animals through their culture of hate. In Hebrew, I could clearly see the Israelis were talking about the Palestinian terrorists and murderers, and not generalizing about all Palestinians - but NPR did not make that distinction. I personally don't care if the Palestinian murderers from Hamas and Islamic Jihad were born animals or were brainwashed by their Nazi-like propaganda - in either case they should be arrested or killed.

There's also the well known dumb leftist moral equivalency, where we are to think that the Palestinians murderers from the Islamic Jihad suffer as much as the Israeli women and children who are targetted in suicide bombings (the show starts with "two years in which each side has done terrible things to the other side..."). The show also interviews a religious 15-year-old Israeli kid who is racist and very anti-Palestinian, but as a typical NPR bias, we don't hear a word from any Palestinian from the Islamic Jihad or Hamas calling for the destruction of Israel and the genocide of her citizens. This clearly makes you think that the Palestinians are good people who want peace, while the Israelis wish only to kill and murder.

Now that I got a few things off my chest, this show is a good "This American Life" episode and if you have the time, check it out. The show is one hour long and you may access it by clicking on the image above or here. You'll need the Real Audio player. which you can get here for free.

For certain animal activists, the life of a 5-year-old Israeli girl counts less than the life of a donkey (02.06.2003)


OpinionThe Virginian Pilot (www.pilotonline.com) reports that PETA ("People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals") has pleaded with Arafat to stop the violence and the killing... of donkeys:

On Jan. 26, a bomb exploded on the road between Jerusalem and the West Bank settlement of Gush Etzion.

As terror attacks go, this one was minor. Most of us didn't hear about it because, with the exception of one bus passenger treated for shock, no one was injured. Thank God.

Palestinian terrorists delivered the bomb to its destination by donkey. They strapped explosives and a remote device to the animal and detonated the bomb by cell phone as an Israeli bus passed by. The donkey, of course, was killed. [...]

PETA, the group that never before expressed concern about the carnage in Israel, is suddenly outraged. [...]

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk this week fired off a fax to Yasser Arafat:

``. . . We have received many calls and letters from people shocked at the bombing . . . in which a live donkey, laden with explosives, was intentionally blown up. [...]

``If you have the opportunity,'' Newkirk beseeched Arafat, ``will you please add to your burdens my request that you appeal to all those who listen to you to leave the animals out of this conflict?'' In other words, Newkirk seems to be begging the Palestinians not to stop the slaughter, but rather to find a different delivery system for their bombs. [...]


The Washington Post this week asked Ms. Newkirk if she had ``considered asking Arafat to persuade those who listen to him to stop blowing up people as well'' as animals. Her response should be required reading for all would-be members of PETA:

``It's not my business to inject myself into human wars,'' Newkirk told the Post.


Sure, I agree that animals should not be treated cruelly. But if PETA is going to make a plea to Arafat and his thugs - shouldn't the plea also include an end to the deliberate killing of men, women and children as well? PETA's last remark (on "human wars") shows how biased they are: this "human war" would stop tomorrow if the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Arafat's terrorists stopped murdering people.

I almost put this in the humor section, but sadly it's a true story. For PETA the life of 5-year-old Danielle Sheffi counts less than the life of a donkey.

I copy the full article below - thanks to LGF for the link.

Update: Please read the comments on this entry - you'll find a response from PETA and additional thoughts about this story (including a semi change of heart on my part).

Israel Advocacy Pamphlets (07.10.2003)


AnnouncementI have just received the following email:



Great pamphlets on "Checkpoints",
the "Occupation", Refugees and more at
www.israelcampaign.com



Recently, there has been a theater troup in my hometown performing checkpoints on people walking in parks to show people "Palestinian suffering". So I decided to go there and hand out pamphlets that explained why there are checkpoints.

I started designing one, and then another, and then others until I had about 10 pamphlets, each treating a key topic in the conflict. I decided to put them up on the web in high quality format so that people from around the world can print them, photocopy, and distribute them on campuses, at the office, at rallies, etc...

What I am asking from you is that since I have just started, would it be possible for you to add a link to my site on your website? The address is:

http://www.israelcampaign.com


Please let me know,

Thank You,
E.A.


Well E.A., I checked out your site and I am really impressed with the pamphlets - you've done some excellent work! I've also added a link to www.israelcampaign.com in the FactsOfIsrael.com links page - I hope you get a lot of hits.

Dennis Ross explains why Arafat refused a Palestinian State and Peace (07.05.2002)


Opinion'Foreign Policy' (www.foreignpolicy.com) has a great article by Dennis Ross, who was the lead American negotiator on the Middle East peace process in the first Bush and both Clinton administrations.

In the article Dennis Ross gives us some insight on Arafat's refusal of peace with Israel and the reasons he rejected a Palestinian State in 2000. He also reinforces the claim that Israel is willing to make concessions to reach a peaceful agreement:

But from the start of the Oslo negotiations in 1993, Arafat focused only on what he was going to receive, not what he had to give. He found it difficult to live without a cause, a struggle, a grievance, and a conflict to define him. Arafat never faced up to what he would have to do—even though we tried repeatedly to condition him. As a result, when he was finally put to the test with former President Bill Clinton’s proposal in December 2000, Arafat failed miserably. [...]

To this day, Arafat has never honestly admitted what was offered to the Palestinians—a deal that would have resulted in a Palestinian state, with territory in over 97 percent of the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem; with Arab East Jerusalem as the capital of that state (including the holy place of the Haram al-Sharif, the Noble Sanctuary); with an international presence in place of the Israeli Defense Force in the Jordan Valley; and with the unlimited right of return for Palestinian refugees to their state but not to Israel. Nonetheless, Arafat continues to hide behind the canard that he was offered Bantustans—a reference to the geographically isolated black homelands created by the apartheid-era South African government. Yet with 97 percent of the territory in Palestinian hands, there would have been no cantons. Palestinian areas would not have been isolated or surrounded. There would have been territorial integrity and contiguity in both the West Bank and Gaza, and there would have been independent borders with Egypt and Jordan.

I have never met an Arab leader who trusts Arafat or has anything good to say about him in private. Almost all Arab leaders have stories about how he has misled or betrayed them. Most simply wave their hands dismissively when examples of his betrayal of commitments are cited—almost as if they are saying, “We know, we know.” The Saudis, in particular, saw his alignment with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in 1991 as proof of his perfidy.[...]

Those who argue for an imposed solution claim no Israeli leader can make the hard decisions, such as giving up settlements, most of the West Bank and Gaza, and the Arab part of East Jerusalem. Yet Barak was prepared to do so; and before the Al-Aqsa Intifada, the Israeli public was ready to support him. In a recent trip to Israel, I found a far-reaching consensus—encompassing the left and the right in Israel—for acceptance of a Clinton-like solution, provided the Palestinians are truly prepared to forsake terror, violence, and the right of return to Israel

Iraqi TV calls foreigners "descendents of pigs and apes" (11.09.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismThe Middle East Media Research Institute (www.memri.org) has translated a sermon that was delivered last Friday (11/8/2002) in the main mosque of Baghdad. This racist and fascist rethoric was also broadcasted on Iraqi television:

"...Brothers, today more than ever before, we need the grace of Jihad of the soul... particularly in this difficult hour in which the Islamic nation [is] experiencing, an hour in which it faces the challenge of [forces] of disbelief of infidels, Jews, crusaders, Americans and Britons. They challenge Allah, His Book, His Prophet, they challenge you the believers. They believe that their castles will protect them from Allah. They think that with their bombs, planes, missiles and advanced [weapons] they will scare us. By Allah, no!!! You [the West] are the real terrorists. We will scare you with the help of Allah. We stand strong; Allah will not allow the infidels to overcome the believers. Who are you, Oh foreigners. Who are you, Oh descendents of pigs and apes, to scare Muhammad, who is supported by Allah, as well as by Gabriel and the [other] Angels...??? Who are you, anyway, Bush [you] little dwarf to threaten Muhammad and his descendents!!?? We challenge you with our words, before challenging you with our weapons. Who are you to threaten us, our feelings and our holy places??!!" [...]

"Oh Allah, let the infidels fight each other, and dry their blood in their veins. Send Your soldiers against them; Allah, shake the ground under their feet; Allah, destroy their fleet and their weapons; fight their soldiers; Allah, and plant fear in them; Oh Allah, confuse their words; Allah, make them prey to the Muslims; Allah avenge Muslims' blood from them... Oh Allah, reduce the word of the infidels, and heighten the word of the believers. Oh Allah, raise the banner of monotheism, raise the slogan of monotheism... 'Allah Akbar' to the criminals; 'Allah Akbar' to America, 'Allah Akbar' to Britain... Oh Allah do not let the Jews or the crusaders overcome the Muslims... Allah, help the Jihad warriors everywhere... Oh Allah, for Thee we fight, we kill and are killed. Allah will settle His account with you, Bush! Allah will settle His account with you, Ariel Sharon; Allah will settle His account with you, Britons! Allah will settle His account with you, enemies of Allah... Our dead for the cause of Allah are Shuhada [martyrs] in paradise, while their dead are in hell..."


This thing with "pigs and apes" seems to be a common theme with Islamofreaks - click here to see how the Iman of the Mosque of Mecca in Saudi Arabia also uses such enlightened arguments.

There is no Palestinian partner for peace (06.17.2002)


OpinionThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has a good article on how a Palestinian State would be a great danger for Israel, not only because of Arafat, but mainly because of the Palestinians' hate towards the Jewish State and their wish for her destruction.

To start with, a large portion of the Palestinian population openly declares that its goal is not a two-state solution, but Israel's destruction. In a poll conducted in May-June by the Jerusalem Media and Communication Center, a Palestinian research organization, 51 percent of Palestinians said the goal of the current conflict is "to liberate all of historic Palestine" - a euphemism for eradicating Israel. This is a new high, but a large minority has always espoused this position (a year ago, the rate was 41%).

Furthermore, both leading Palestinian parties, Fatah and Hamas, deny that a Jewish state has a right to exist. Hamas, of course, rejects Israel's existence outright. Fatah, in contrast, is willing to accept Israel's existence - but not as a Jewish state. According to MK Amnon Rubinstein, a veteran dove from the far-left Meretz party, Fatah's Web site recently declared that "rejecting the right of return means the continuation of the struggle indefinitely" (Ha'aretz, June 12). In other words, peace is possible only if Israel allows in enough Palestinian refugees to vote the Jewish state out of existence.


Sad news, but true. As someone who used to vote Labor (left, see the democracy page for details), I woke up and smelled the falafel - I realize today that there is no Palestinian partner for peace - the best we can hope is to crush them militarily and stop their murderous attacks on unarmed Israeli civilians.

Americans start Boycott of France (03.17.2003)


OpinionBill O'Reilly from the Fox News Channel (www.foxnews.com) has called from a complete boycott of French goods:





More than 50,000 people have responded to the Internet poll, and 93 percent support boycotting French goods, just 6 percent are opposed. [...]

So what I am calling for is a boycott of French goods in the stores. For example, if you buy Poland Spring bottled water instead of Evian, the store still gets the money. [...]

You know, we have bailed out France now three times in this century, in World War I, in World War II, and then in the Cold War, and -- and so France really does owe us a debt of gratitude. They should be a strong ally of U.S. and European national security, and yet what you have here is France undermining the national security of a country that's supposed to be a friend and an ally. [...]

MOORE: ... because France is extremely dependent on American tourists in the spring and summer seasons.

O'REILLY: Two-point-nine million, Mr. Moore, last year. That was down 20 percent... [...] and I say it's going to be down another 50 percent. I think it will be down at least a million.


I join Mr. O'Reilly in his boycott of France and I urge anyone who is outraged by France's protection of Saddam Hussein and its anti-American and anti-Israeli stance to do the same. Don't buy French products (look at the labels) and don't go on vacation in France.

Palestinian terrorist blows himself up in market; tries to murder dozens of innocent Israelis (01.19.2006)


Palestinian TerrorismThe Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian terrorist from the terrorist group "Islamic Jihad" has blown himself in a market in Tel-Aviv:

In what security officials said was an attempt to generate anarchy within the Palestinian Authority in the run-up to next week's planned elections, an Islamic Jihad suicide bomber blew himself up on Thursday in a Tel Aviv shwarma stand injuring 30 bystanders.



One of the wounded was said to be in serious condition and five others sustained moderate injuries. Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the attack and the suicide bomber was identified as 22-year-old Sami Abdel Hafiz Antar from Nablus. Islamic Jihad has been behind the past six suicide bombings in Israel over the past year, and is the only faction to boycott next Wednesday's Palestinian Authority parliamentary elections. [...]



The attack occurred at close to 4 PM after Hafiz Antar entered the Rosh Ha'ir Shwarma stand on Rehov Salema 2 in the southern Tel Aviv neighborhood of Neveh Sha'anan offering clients there to buy razor blades. "He came in, tried to sell razor blades and then went to the back of the shop where he blew himself up," the shop's owner Arieh Sharon said. In January 2003, 23 people were killed and some 120 were wounded in a double suicide bombing around the corner from Thursday's attack.



Police said the explosion went off in the restaurant's bathroom, possibly prematurely as the bomber tried to prepare the explosive device. In addition, police said, the combination of a relatively small explosive device and the fact that the bomber chose a closed-in shop as his target, limited the damage and the number of wounded.


Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other Islamic fanatical groups wish to destroy Israel and murder all Israeli jewish men, women and children.

Most Palestinians support terrorism (05.18.2002)


Palestinian TerrorismA good friend of mine once said he did not believe that most Palestinians supported the killings of unarmed Israeli civilians by the Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's other terrorist groups (Tanzim, Force 17, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, etc...).

Well Bill, from everything I read and hear, I disagree: the majority of the Palestinian people support the killing of innocent Israeli civilians, including kids, mothers and grand-fathers.



A Palestinian kid dreams of becoming
a homicide / suicide bomber


This article from the Washington Post goes over this sick culture of hate, anti-semitism and adoration of homicide/suicide bombers.

"The Israelis accuse the Palestinian Authority of perpetuating the cult of the suicide bomber, starting in elementary schools. Every single school we went into in Jenin, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Qalqilya or Tulkarm was plastered with posters of the glorification of the [martyrs]," said Col. Miri Eisen, an intelligence officer with the Israeli army. 'They are teaching a generation that violence is OK.'"

Anti-Semitism in Saudi Arabia (12.01.2002)


Anti-SemitismThe National Review (www.nationalreview.com) has a good article on the anti-Semitism and hatred present in Saudi-Arabian culture:



According to government controlled
Saudi newspapers, the Jews are behind
America's War on Terror


Consider several [...] examples of Riyadh's public Jew bashing:

- "Muslim brothers in Palestine, do not have any mercy neither compassion on the Jews, their blood, their money, their flesh," Shaik Saad Al-Buraik has said. "Their women are yours to take legitimately. God made them yours. Why don't you enslave their women? Why don't you wage jihad? Why don't you pillage them?"

- Al-Buraik hosted an April 11-13 government telethon that raised $109 million for Palestinian relief, including money for the families of homicide bombers.

- O God, the Jews have transgressed all limits in their tyranny," Shaik Abd-al-Bari al Thubayti prayed in a June 7 sermon on official Saudi TV2. "O God, shake the ground under their feet, pour torture on them, and destroy all of them." This and similar statements appear in a forthcoming Anti-Defamation League paper on Saudi bigotry.

- In the June 23 Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, a London-based Saudi daily, defense minister Prince Sultan (father of Saudi ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar), elucidates why Riyadh keeps enduring U.S. criticism: "It is enough to see a number of congressmen wearing Jewish yarmulkes to explain the allegations against us."

- ArabNews.com, an English-language online Saudi daily, even posted David Duke's May 15 attack on "evil Jewish supremacists."

- Harvard Law School's Jonathan Zittrain and Benjamin Edelman report that the government Internet Services Unit prevents Saudis from accessing "a black list of banned sites." Thus, Riyadh specifically blocks the webpage of Amsterdam's Anne Frank House.


Not all Arabs/Muslims are racist - that said many of them are extremely anti-Semitic, becoming the new Nazis. They are brainwashed and believe that the Jews control the World and should be exterminated - it doesn't get more Nazi than that.

Stop buying cars that are not environmentally conscious and fuel-efficient. In the next couple of weeks, I will be purchasing my first hybrid car - I will be able to get 60 miles/galon - spending less than 30% of what I'm spending today in gas. That's a 70% loss to the Saudis and other oil weasels. Buy a hybrid today - click here to see how it works, and here to check out the Toyota Prius.
