Israel & Top Ten Truths May 9, 2010

Over at Rehmat’s World blog, an article which give you 10 truths about Israel.  Truth can never be denied and if you do deny truth then innocent people pay the price.

One of Israeli Hasbara (propaganda) organs, Simon Wiesenthal Center has produced a brochure titled “2010 Top Ten Anti-Israel Lies” for the tens of thousands of Israel Hasbara Committee members and IT operatives to counter the success of Israel’s delegitimization process by the anti-Zionist-regime movements and bloggers. The multi-million dollar project will distribute 500,000 of copies of the brochure to shore-up Israel’s failing PR. The brochure provides the Zionist narration of State of Isreal’s history and its commitment to peace in the Middle East and the world at large.

I would like to debunk this Zionist narration based on historical facts.

Lie 1: Israel was created by European guilt over the Nazi holocaust. Why should Palestinian pay the price?

Why would European feel guilt over Nazi holocaust which was committed by the Nazis who had 150,000 German Jews among them? Furthermore, before the 20th century, Jewish communities were expelled from almost every European country. The expulsion had nothing to do with ‘anti-Semitism’ as the vast majority of 12.7 million world Jewish population is either Khazars or Berbers and not Semite people of Israelite tribes. And why they were expelled? Who would know better than Herzl Theodor, who said: “Each country can only absorb a limited number of Jews, if she doesn\’t want disorder in her stomach. Germany has alread too many Jews“. During the persecution of Jews under Nazi Germany, it were the leaders of World Zionist movement who compaigned in Britain, the US and Canada – not to let European Jews enter those countries because it will fuel the existing ‘anti-Semitism’. It was only the West Germans under US Occupation who ended up paying US$93 billion as compensation for Nazi crimes. The Americans who did not take part in the holocaust – had been made to pay more than US$3,000 billion since 1970s.

Lie 2: Had Israel withdrwan to its June 1967 borders, peace would have come long ago.

Israel never had internationally recognized borders as pre-1967 it had already occupied more Palestinian land awarded to the Jews by the Western powers through the notorious Balfour Declaration and United Nations in 1948. Furthermore, Zionists’ dream of Eretz Israel cannot be achieved in a peaceful Middle East. They believed that continuous conflicts and wars were necessary for the survival of the Zionist colonial power. Professor Benny Morris in his book ‘The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949′; published in 1987 – documented the expulsion of 700,000 Native Muslim and Christian Palestinians by the armed Jew terrorist militias.

Lie 3: Israel is the main stumbling block to achieving a two-state solution.

The so-called two-state solution, which is not acceptable to Zionist leaders having a sovereign and fully militarized Palestinian state bordering Israel. The agenda behind the slogan is to make Zionist occupation of Arab Palestine permanent. It was the brainchild of the pro-Israel US President Dubya Bush, who, in 2003 declared that Palestinian need a separate state aka a Palestinian Bantustan. While Bush Zionist administration was pushing the PA leaders to accept the “Two-state” solution – one state (88% of Palestinian land) for Jews only and the other for the Native Muslims and Christians on the remaining land (22%) – Tel Aviv kept establishing new Jewish settlements on Arab lands; kidnapping and murdering civilians in both Gaza Strip and the West Bank to make sure that Palestinian are left with no choice but to keep their resistance against the Jewish occupiers of their Motherland.

Lie 4: Nuclear Israel, not Iran, is the greatest threat to peace and stability.

In fact, it’s the truth. Iran has invaded not a single of its neighbors for over 100 years while Israel has invaded all its neighbor and has occupied Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian Territories. Professor Jeffrey Rudolph in Can You Pass The Iran Quiz? proves that Israel is “the problem”.

Lie 5: Israel is an apartheid state deserving international boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns.

True and much more. The Zionist entity is a colonial state and not a democratic state.

Lie 6: Plans to build 1,600 more new homes in Jerusalem proves Israel is “Judaizing” the Holy City.

Well, if those homes are given to the pro-Israel Zionist Christians – Israel would not be blamed for “Judaizing” the Holy City.

Lie 7: Israeli policies endanger US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I would rather let the Zionism\’s military poodle, General David Petraeus, (ADL national director Abraham Foxman called him a “Jew Baiter”  for naming Israel as the trouble-maker) answer it. The General in a memo to Admiral Mullen wrote: “America’s perceived support of – or at least acquiescene in – Israel’s more inflammatory policies endangers American troops abroad. In the long run, it will also endanger American civilians at home, funnelling more terrorisn in their direction”.

Lie 8: Israeli policies are the cause of worldwide anti-Semitism.

Partly true. According to a research conducted by Bielefeld University western hatred toward Muslims have decreased over the past year while the hatred of Jews is growing. Israelis are genuinely concerned. The sudden drop in Islamophobia doesn’t fit into the Zionist global plan in which Muslims are cornered and ostracised as reactionaries while Israel is dropping bombs in the name of democracy and liberalism.

Lie 9: Israel, not Hamas, is responsible for the “humanitarian catastrophe” in Gaza. Goldstein was right when he charged that Israel was guilty of war crimes against civilians.

Now who would know Israeli Zionist Jews’ crimes better than a South African Zionist Jew Judge Goldstein?

Lie 10: The only hope for peace is a single, binational state eliminating the Jewish State of Israel.

Neither United States or United Nations recognize Israel as a “Jewish State” – because it’s not a Jewish State.

Hamas says captured two Israeli soldiers January 4, 2009

GAZA, Jan 4 (Reuters) – Hamas said it captured two Israeli soldiers during fighting in the Gaza Strip on Sunday and was holding them hostage.

But the Israeli army said it had no knowledge of any of its soldiers falling into Hamas’s hands.

“Two soldiers were captured,” Hamas radio and television said.

The capture of Israeli soldiers by Hamas could have a large impact on public support in Israel for the Gaza offensive, in which 470 Palestinians have been killed since Dec. 27.

Gaza militants captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in a cross-border raid in June 2006. Negotiations brokered by Egypt to secure Shalit’s release have foundered.

Moshe Feiglin, a racist, rightist Israeli who represents the future of the Jewish state? From a recent Haaretz profile:

Feiglin dreams of a state guided by his perception of what the Jewish spirit means: a state that would remove all the muslim shrines from the Temple Mount, a state whose non-Jewish inhabitants would be entitled to become residents and to run their own municipal affairs, but not to determine the country’s fate. A state where the courts are not subject to the relativist values of the West, but to the absolute values that clearly distinguish between the good and the bad, where one is not punished for killing a terrorist who is tied up. A state that understands that we are not engaged in a “low-intensity conflict,” but rather in a world war that pits Jewish civilization against Muslim civilization, a war that must be waged by any and all means to defeat the enemy and ensure the triumph of the Jewish idea.

Imagine if an Israeli Arab dared imagine a future Israel where Jews could not determine their own fate.

When a Jew says this, however, the world turns a blind eye.

Supporting Israel is supportung terrorism.

All living in Israel are equally responsible for Nazi like action in Palestine on innocent civilians.

Israel being a total terror state makes Al-Qaeda look like an infant baby.  Today’s Nazi Germany is Israel and the Jews are Palestinians.

The Palestinian struggle for Freedom continues, all great empires fall and once USA empire collapses and funding stops for Israel.  Israel will have to answer millions of Muslims and Christians in the Middle East who will be waiting at every possible exit routs in and out of Israel.  This is proven in history when great empires fall.

The evil Jews (in israel) Start the Killing Again December 27, 2008

On the day when Shabbat of Chanukah is celebrated the Jews occupying Palestine ( israel) have decided to celebrate by returning to what they specialise in “MASS MURDER” and “MASSACRES”.

With the latest military equipment sponsored and payed by tax payers money, the Jews have used this with no controll on innocent people who have been already suffering by Jews taking away their freedom for the past 60 years.  People around the world have compared the Palestians civilian condition as a “the worlds biggest open air concentration camp” .

 Although no proof exists that Hammas or any other resistance party have launched any type of rockets or stones into territory occupied by Jews, the Zionist and Jewish regimes have made this false claim the central reason for this annihilation of ordinary people of Palestine, especially women and children.

 Infidel & Kafir Watch totally condemns this massacre innocent people.  The Jews in Palestine have continually lied on every step accusing Palestinians of firing rockets into Jews illegal occupied territory, the real truth is out there in depended blog’s of the real picture. 

The reality is that during the 6 months ceasefire between Hammas and Jews in Palestine, the Jews have used this time to continue the blockade of any type of necessity of basic requirements that a civilisation needs such as Fuel, medical supplies, electricity, food and humanitarian aid.  Imagine your community not having fuel, food, electricity and medical supplies for 6 months, further surrounded by a illegal wall and where you right are denied continually?

 History till present day has proved the biggest disasters (man made) around the world are all linked to Jews and Zionists.  Evil in today’s world is known as Israel.

I would like to provide evidence from no other than Jews themselves who have admitted that Israel is found on terrorism at a state level:

We’re not celebrating Israel’s anniversary

 

[source]

In May, Jewish organisations will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel. This is understandable in the context of centuries of persecution culminating in the Holocaust. Nevertheless, we are Jews who will not be celebrating. Surely it is now time to acknowledge the narrative of the other, the price paid by another people for European anti-semitism and Hitler’s genocidal policies. As Edward Said emphasised, what the Holocaust is to the Jews, the Naqba is to the Palestinians.

In April 1948, the same month as the infamous massacre at Deir Yassin and the mortar attack on Palestinian civilians in Haifa’s market square, Plan Dalet was put into operation. This authorised the destruction of Palestinian villages and the expulsion of the indigenous population outside the borders of the state. We will not be celebrating.

In July 1948, 70,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes in Lydda and Ramleh in the heat of the summer with no food or water. Hundreds died. It was known as the Death March. We will not be celebrating.

In all, 750,000 Palestinians became refugees. Some 400 villages were wiped off the map. That did not end the ethnic cleansing. Thousands of Palestinians (Israeli citizens) were expelled from the Galilee in 1956. Many thousands more when Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza. Under international law and sanctioned by UN resolution 194, refugees from war have a right to return or compensation. Israel has never accepted that right. We will not be celebrating.

We cannot celebrate the birthday of a state founded on terrorism, massacres and the dispossession of another people from their land. We cannot celebrate the birthday of a state that even now engages in ethnic cleansing, that violates international law, that is inflicting a monstrous collective punishment on the civilian population of Gaza and that continues to deny to Palestinians their human rights and national aspirations.

We will celebrate when Arab and Jew live as equals in a peaceful Middle East.

The Gaza concentration camp: ancient colonialism through a Nazi filter August 18, 2008

When you approach the Erez frontier post to enter Gaza from the north, you notice a concentration camp straightaway even if you may never have seen one like the ones turned into museums or educational centres, or like the ones that appear in documentaries or photographs. Patrolling closely about the ten or so people waiting under a scorching sun before a guard post in the middle of open ground about a built-up area, various soldiers and plain clothes police, with state of the art machine guns at the ready, make very clear the people had better keep very still. At the end of a long wait, by loudspeaker, the soldier in the armed guard post lets them through into the built-up precinct. It is like a warehouse, unexpectedly high, air conditioned and with various control posts inside, although only one is in use, since not enough people go through to warrant operating the rest. One is subjected to more waiting despite the absence of movement. For the Zionist mentality everyone who does not cooperate with the system must pay a price.  [read more]

It’s been brought to my attention that there are few films available (or in the near future), which highlight the brutality in which the Palestinians (living in true Palestine) are subjected to.  We all should remember, what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong.

To all visitors (and bloggers) if you truely believe these films need more publicity then please do what ever is in your power promote the truth.

WARNING – IF YOU LOVE iSRAEL THEN DO NOT READ THIS.. June 19, 2008

OR IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENS, THEN…

iSRAEL’S VERY OWN GUANTANAMOS

The “death ride” — welcome to 21st century torture, says Khalid Amayreh in occupied East Jerusalem

Israeli maltreatment of Palestinian captives and political prisoners has reached unprecedented levels of brutality, according to lawyers, human rights groups and newly-released prisoners.

There are currently as many as 12,000 Palestinian detainees languishing in Israeli detention camps, many of them without charge or trial. They include hundreds of university professors, engineers, school teachers as well as religious and civic leaders, students, resistance fighters and women activists.

Two years ago, the Israeli occupation authorities abducted hundreds of democratically- elected officials, including mayors, members of local city councils, law-makers, and cabinet ministers, many associate with Hamas’s political wing.

Israel employs a set of draconian laws, some dating back to the British mandate era, to torment Palestinian prisoners. The same laws are also used to lend a façade of legality to other harsh treatment of Palestinians, such as house demolitions, land confiscation and deportation.

Normally, the harsh treatment meted out to Palestinian detainees starts in earnest with crack Israeli soldiers raiding a given Palestinian home in the quiet hours before dawn. There, the undisciplined soldiers normally ransack the house, vandalise property and furniture, smash house appliances and terrorise the entire family, before blindfolding and handcuffing their victim and dragging him away to a military truck that takes him to one of the dozens of interrogation centres all over Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.

Upon arrival at the interrogation centre, the detainee is instantly subjected to an array of harsh treatment techniques designed to shock him and destroy his psychological immunity. These include sleep deprivation and solitary confinement as well as sporadic beating.

Then the victim is made to go through the routine technique called shabh whereby he is forced to sit on a 25cm high stool, with his hands tied to his back. He can be kept in this extremely uncomfortable position for weeks or even months except for short periods to go to the toilet and eat.

The main purpose behind the harsh treatment is ostensibly to extract confessions from the victim. On many occasions, the victims confess to having committed fictitious violations only to escape the harsh and intolerable torture. Eventually, however, if no confessions are extracted, the detainee is sentenced to administrative detention, or open-ended captivity without being charged or tried.

Torture, which the Israeli judicial authorities euphemistically refer to as “moderate physical and psychological pressure”, is officially sanctioned by Israel’s law. Indeed, several Palestinian detainees have recently died in Israeli jails either due to torture or medical negligence. According to the Palestinian Prisoner Club, which monitors Israeli treatment of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, 167 Palestinians have died in Israeli custody since 1967.

However, while torture was normally performed on detainees mainly in order to extract confessions, the Israeli prison authorities have been using torture for the purpose of simply tormenting and humiliating Palestinian detainees.

“Their goal is to make us suffer, to torment us, to humiliate us. They want to punish us further for our survival, for refusing to die and disappear as a people, for refusing to collapse. Perhaps they think that by tormenting us, they get the feeling that they are avenging the holocaust, at least vicariously,” said Mohamed Abu Zneid, from Dura, who was released recently from an Israeli detention camp near the Egyptian borders. “But I can say that such behaviour can only come from a sick people, a sadistic people. Otherwise, why would normal people behave this way?”

“Administrative detention” which is a mere euphemism for prolonged and mostly unlawful captivity as punishment for one’s political thoughts and attitudes has become of late the modus operandi of Israeli treatment of Palestinian prisoners. Today, Israel is detaining hundreds of mostly innocent Palestinians in detention camps all over Israel, such as the notorious Kitziot concentration camp in the Negev desert.

A few years ago, Mustafa Shawar, a detainee at Kitziot, informed this writer that on several occasions he had appealed to the Jewish military “judge” at the Treblinka-like facility to tell him why he was being incarcerated so that he wouldn’t commit the same violation again once he was released. Shawar, a senior lecturer at the University of Hebron, said the judge paid no attention to his just request. “He told me that he wouldn’t grant me the privilege of knowing why I was in jail because, as he said, the Jews are the masters and non-Jews are the slaves and the chosen people are under no moral or legal obligation to explain to the inferiors why they are being mistreated.”

Today, Shawar is still languishing at Kitziot for the fourth successive year, not knowing why he is being tormented by a state that claims to be a “light unto nations” and the “only democracy in the Middle East”.

Shawar is not an exceptional case. He epitomises the fate of thousands of Palestinian detainees and hostages languishing in Israeli detention camps, mostly for harbouring ideas and thoughts that the Ashkenazi establishment deems too dangerous.

Similarly, Azzam Salhab, professor of comparative religion at Hebron University, has been languishing in the same desert concentration camp for eight years on vague charges such as “constituting a danger to the safety and security of Israel and the Jewish people.”

According to the Nafha Society, a human rights group defending Palestinian prisoners’ rights, the Israeli occupation authorities issue dozens of administrative detention orders per month.

Earlier, this week, the Israeli army renewed the “administrative detention” for Radi Sami Al-Asi for additional six months. Al-Asi, a journalist from the northern West Bank town of Nablus, was arrested on unspecified charges. However, when it became clear that there was no evidence indicting him, the Israeli military judge decided to sentence him to six months in jail, renewable for as long as the occupation authorities deem fit. So far, Al-Asi has spent more than 38 months in administrative detention without knowing why.

Farhat Asad, a 40-year-old father of three children from Ramallah, was sentenced to a sixth term of administrative detention on 16 June. All in all, Asad has spent more than 100 months in administrative detention.

According to Tawhid Shaaban, a prominent lawyer from East Jerusalem, some detainees have spent nine years in Israeli captivity without charge or trial. “Yes, this happens in a state that claims to be the only democracy in the Middle East.”

The so-called “death ride” is one of the most agonising and nightmarish experiences a detainee undergoes. It starts with a sudden raid of a given ward by the notorious Nahshon squad, which is specialised in repressing Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. Then a prisoner or several prisoners are ordered to board an extremely filthy, hot and nearly hermetically sealed white vehicle, allegedly in order to appear before a judge several hundred kilometres away. The hateful vehicle would move very slowly from one prison to the other to carry additional prisoners, including dangerous Jewish criminals. The car would stop every hour for refreshment, while the inmates are sweating in the back chamber.

The nightmarish journey, which could last for 24 hours, is first and foremost meant to make the prisoners suffer as much as possible in the oven-like metal chamber where there is very little oxygen. The prisoners are barred from using toilets for close to 16 hours, and some are forced to urinate and defecate inside the lock-up car.

Saed Yassin, a human rights activist describes the “death ride” as “an intolerable and unbearable form of torture. They don’t treat you as a human being but as cattle or a piece of luggage. People are left to rot and suffer in these oven- like chambers for up to 24 hours without food, without water, and with very little oxygen. And if they want to torment a given person, he is forced to undergo this nightmare every few days.”

In addition to the death ride, the Israeli Prison Authority has been introducing additional forms of punishments, aimed at breaking the prisoner’s will. These include barring family visits for an extended period of times for the slightest and pettiest violation of outstanding instructions.

Moreover, the Israeli occupation authorities have been barring family visits for more than 900 Gazan prisoners in Israeli jails under the pretext of the 18-month harsh blockade which Israel has been imposing in Gaza. The Red Cross asked Israel on several occasions to allow Gazans to visit their beloved ones, but to no avail.

Israel recently resorted to “unorthodox tactics” to harass Palestinian prisoners, including raiding and vandalising their homes and mistreating their wives and children, imposing hefty financial fines on them, and carrying out surprise searches usually after midnight.

Last week, lawyers and newly-released prisoners reported that the Israeli Prison Authorities have naked Jewish women, probably prostitutes, harass prisoners, especially religious inmates, through sexually suggestive behaviour. A spokesman for the prison authorities refused to confirm or deny the revelation.
