Fact 222: "In April 2002, Palestinian terrorists carried out five homicide/suicide bombings in five days, a period coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Passover. All told, more than 40 Israeli civilians were murdered and more than 120 were wounded. Following the attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said: 'Citizens of Israel: The state of Israel is at war, a war against terror,' Sharon said. 'We must fight this terrorism, in an uncompromising war to uproot these savages, to dismantle their infrastructure, because there is no compromise with terrorists.' Sharon added that Arafat 'activated, coordinated and directed' the campaign against Israel and is 'the enemy of the free world.'"

Many Europen leftists will try to convince us that Saddam Hussein is a saint and that there's no need to stop the butcher from Baghdad from getting weapons of mass destruction. Here's something that could easily have happened in my local (San Francisco, California) liberal TV station KTVU:

Fox News (www.foxnews.com) reports that the Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber that blew himself up in Jerusalem yesterday killed a 5-year-old girl and her Grandmother.
5-year-old Gal Eizenman killed by a
Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber
Hours before her death in a suicide attack, 5-year-old Gal Eizenman was jumping around, a blond bundle of joy at a children's musical performance organized by her grandmother Noah Alon, 59.
May God bless their memory. I copy the full article below.
The Washington Post (www.washingtonpost.com) has an incredible story on Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, ex-Foreign Minister of Poland, who helped save 4,000 Jews during the Holocaust, including 2,500 children:
Wladyslaw Bartoszewski has seen it all.
Many people in Poland hate Jews with a passion (see this example) - Mr. Bartoszewski is an inspiration to humanity.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian mass murderers have killed 16 Israelis, including a three year old child:
Two suicide bombers exploded almost simultaneously on two buses in central Beersheba on Tuesday, killing 16 people and wounding dozens. The explosions took place on buses numbers 12 and 7, traveling opposite the municipality building at 2:55 p.m. [...]
This is more proof that Israel's security fence is part of the solution in fighting the war against Palestinian terrorism. The Palestinian terrorists did not strike in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem or any other city in Israel's center, but were only able to kill in the South of Israel, where as the article mentions, the fence is not yet built.
Israel needs to continue doing what has it has been executing for the last two years:
1) On the one hand, Israel needs to continue building its security fence. This will stop the mass murdering freaks from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas to easily kill women and children. Israel also needs to continue ignoring the biased Europeans and their Kangoroo court of "Justice" (click here for more details on Israel's security fence and here for the disregard of human life by the European clowns).
2) On the other hand, Israel's army need to continue fighting the Palestinian terrorists. Israel will continue to track the mass murderers from the Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa Brigades down and kill them, one by one. If they are running like rats, they will not have time to murder Israeli women and children.

Israel Insider (www.israelinsider.com) has reprinted a letter from Alan Keyes to Mesora. Title "With the brave people of Israel", the letter touches on some excellent points and made me shiver.
I write to express my solidarity with the people of Israel in this difficult time, and to assure you of what I know you cannot doubt, that millions of Americans stand with Israel as well. We will remember the truth of Israel's honorable record, insist that others treat Israel in light of that truth, and not succumb to the cowardly passions of the moment.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that racist bastards spray painted anti-Jewish Nazi swastikas in France:
Racist bastards spray anti-Jewish Nazi symbols in France
Tombs vandalized in eastern France
In the last French elections, Communist and other parties on the extreme left received roughly 17% of the vote. The neo Nazi National Front and other fascist parties received over 20% of French vote. France also has a large Muslim population which is very alienated from western principles of Democracy and freedom but is more in line with fanatical Islamic religious values.
If you add it up you realize that almost 50% of France (17% + 20% + 10% = 47%) is an extreme leftist, a fascist from the extreme right, or someone who probably supports Islamic Supremacists from Al-Qaeda or the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
It is therefore no surprise that these bastards (and France as a whole) hate the United States of America, Israel, or any other western democracy that fights Communism, Nazism or Islamic Supremacism.
I copy below the results from the last French election, including the first and second round. If you haven't already done so, please start the boycott of French products; click here for more details.
Today elections are taking place in California. In San Mateo, California's 12th district, we have both the Democratic party's primaries and elections for the US Senate and House of Congress.
Particularly important (and relevant to FactsOfIsrael.com) are the elections for our representative in the US Congress. The candidates are very much linked to Israel and the Middle East:
1) Our current Congressman is Tom Lantos (Dem.). Mr. Lantos was born in Hungary and is a Holocaust survivor. He has been our representative since 1981, suports the War on Islamic Terrorism, the War on Iraq and the Patriot Act. He's a passionate defender of Israel and he's a true Eagle, as defined by Andrew Sullivan. His site is http://www.lantos.org/
2) One of Mr. Lantos main opponents is Maad Abu-Ghazalah, a Palestinian born in Nablus, in the West Bank, who grew up in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He's today running as a Democrat and his main qualifications are that he served as the President of the San Francisco Chapter of the "American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee". His current platform calls for America abandoning Iraq and moving our troops out, and a more "evenhanded" policy in America's role in the Middle East peace process (this probably means no support for Israel's right to defend herself against Islamic mass murderers). He also wishes to repeal the Patriot Act, and he's against standardized testing. How can one person be so wrong?
3) There's also a Republican candidate, Mr. Mike Garza, who has mentioned that, if elected, he'll cancel all military and financial aid to Israel.
In our last elections, on 11/5/2002, Mr. Lantos received 68.2% of the vote, and his Republican counterpart, Mr. Michael Moloney, received 24.7%. Mr. Abu-Ghazalah ran then as a Libertarian and got 7.1% of the vote.
If you live in California's 12th district, please go out and vote. Israel, freedom, and Mr. Lantos need your support. For more information on the candidates and the elections try out www.smartvoter.org - type in your street address and ZIP code in the top right and click "Find Ballot".
Update: The election results have been published and I have some great news! Our Congressman, Mr. Tom Lantos, has won the Democratic ticket by a landslide:
United States Reprensentative 12th Congressional District (356 of 356 Precints Reported):
Tom Lantos: 74.18%
Ro Khanna: 18.21%
Maad Abu-Ghazalah: 7.61%

Sky News (www.sky.com) reports that Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi president, has given over $25 million to Palestinian terrorist groups in less than two years.

The Onion (www.theonion.com) has published an article on how some Muslim groups in the United States may be developing nuclear families:
WASHINGTON, DC—According to an FBI report released Monday, "reliable and substantive evidence" exists indicating that Muslims residing in the U.S. are involved in a widespread plot to develop nuclear families.
"We possess what we believe to be credible proof that thousands of Islamic Americans, many of them Mideast-born, are attempting to acquire nuclear-family capability, often in full view of American law-enforcement authorities," said FBI director Robert Mueller, speaking before the Senate Intelligence Committee. "These nuclear families, which consist of a husband-wife core and a varied number of surrounding offspring, could potentially come into contact with other such nuclear families, creating a terrifying chain reaction of Muslim familial perpetuation."
Scarry. I copy the full article below.
Yasser Arafat being such a great murderer, terrorist and Palestinian leader, I would never dream of making fun of him. That said, I must report on some family matters that will make all pro-Palestinians happy. Charles from Little Green Footballs has discovered Yasser Arafat's lost brother:
Arafish, Yasser Arafat's
Here's Arafat reaction after he learned about the existence of Arafish:

Israel Insider (www.israelinsider.com) has a good article written by an Israeli doctor that describes why he currently is against a Palestinian State.
Dr. Nathan Cherny gives some insight on how he's feeling about the Palestinian homicide/suicide bombings and how he copes with their result.
That I care for the well being of tens of Palestinian cancer patients and their families is irrelevant. As a Jew living in Israel, and, more specifically, Jerusalem, I am a potential target worthy of maiming or assassination. That is the miserable nature of the Palestinian struggle for self-determination

O Grupo de Acao Pro-Israel escreveu uma carta aberta a midia Brasileira:
Antes, uma apresentação. Nós judeus brasileiros, que redigimos esta carta, não pertencemos a nenhum partido de direita israelense. Pertencemos sim ao time de torcedores por uma convivência pacífica entre o Estado de Israel (menor que Sergipe) e as nações árabes (do Marrocos ao Paquistão). Ou seja, entre cinco milhões de judeus e seus trezentos milhões de vizinhos árabes. Enfim, entre a única democracia do Oriente Médio (onde inclusive seus cidadãos árabes são eleitos livremente ) e vinte ditaduras, regimes fundamentalistas e monarquias. [...]

Fox news (www.foxnews.com) reports that Sami Al-Arian, a former professor at the University of South Florida, has been charged with being the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the U.S.:
A Florida professor and seven other men were charged Thursday with operating a global terrorist organization that the federal government says is responsible for the deaths of 100 people in and around Israel.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is responsible for the deliberate murder of hundreds of women and children. It's a fascist, intolerant and racist group, whose only goal is to destroy Israel and the U.S. and to kill as many people as possible. Click here for a list of Palestinian homicide bombings since October 2000, when the Palestinians rejected peace and turned (again) to violence and terrorism
Back in August 2002, we reported on this Palestinian professor, whose brother-in-law, Mazen al-Najjar, has been deported for supporting terrorism (click here to read more on "Palestinian U.S. professor screams "Death to Israel!"). What a family.
Also, please click here for Stephen Emerson's book "American Jihad: The Terrorists living among us". Mr. Emerson also mentions the Palestinian professor in his book.
