A Little Of The Hair of the Dog That Bit Ya, Europe?

I actually don't think Europeans are really motivated to action by anti-Semitism anymore. Theirs is a exhausted anti-Semitism. That doesn't mean I don't think there is a problem with anti-Semitism in Europe. I think there is. I also think there is a problem with anti-Semitism in the U.S., although not to the same degree.

The reality is, Europe is too hung over and disgusted with herself after her last all-night orgy of Jew-Killing (commonly known as the Holocaust) to really get up the will for any new Jew-Killing.

However, that doesn't mean they aren't asking for a little "Hair of the Dog."

The new anti-Semitism is, in my opinion, Islamofascist in origin, and is granted power and legitimacy by European tacit complicity.

Here are examples of what I mean.

From Reuters:

Hatred of Jews and Muslims has taken root in France, with anti-Semitism behind most racist crime and hostility towards Islam on the rise, a national human rights commission says in its annual report.

The final version of a controversial European Union report issued on Wednesday blamed "young, disaffected white Europeans" for the rise in anti-Semitic violence. An earlier version had blamed Muslim youths for the rise in attacks on Jews in Europe.

"Anti-Semitic violence is taking root and getting worse," Thoraval said of the situation in France after presenting his report to Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin.

Anti-Semitic violence accounted for 72 percent of the hate crimes and threats registered in France last year


Ladies and Gentleman, think about that. France's population is almost 10 percent Muslim and a little less than one percent Jewish. And yet 72% of attacks are against Jews?

Then from an article by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard:

The headline findings contradict the body of the report, which says most of the 193 violent attacks on synagogues, Jewish schools, kosher shops, cemeteries and rabbis in France in 2002 - up from 32 in 2001 - were "ascribed to youth from neighbourhoods sensitive to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, principally of North African descent. The percentage attributable to the extreme right was only 9 per cent in 2002," it said.

The report on Belgium said most of the firebomb and machine-gun attacks on Jewish targets were a spill-over from the Palestinian intifada.

The EU suppressed a report last year by German academics concluding that Arab gangs were largely responsible for a sudden surge in anti-Jewish violence, allegedly because the findings were politically unpalatable.

Victor Weitzel, who wrote a large section of Wednesday's far more detailed study, said the latest findings had been consistently massaged by the EU watchdog to play down the role of North African youth. "The European Union seems incapable of facing up to the truth on this," he said.


Europe's willful ignorance of the source of the problem serves to aid and abet the spread of anti-Semitism.

I just hope they don't go too far with the Hair of the Dog. You know how it is all you Christian Junkies out there, you have one to take off the shakes, and that one leads to two, and two to three, and then, before you know it, you don't feel the disgust and despair anymore.

You're partyin.




The Passion of the ... What the...?

I wonder if my fellow Christians will be happy to know that The Passion is doing well in the Arab world.

"In Egypt, where the film opened to large crowds Wednesday, "it's getting a very special treatment," said Mustafa Darwish, a film critic and former president of the Egypt Censorship Authority.

So far, the film has been released uncensored in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

A longstanding ruling from Al Azhar University -- the ultimate spiritual authority for Muslims worldwide -- forbids the depiction of prophets in movies, and Muslims consider Jesus Christ a prophet. But authorities have made an exception for the controversial film depicting the final hours of Jesus' life.

Darwish and other observers say allegations raised by U.S. Jewish groups may have actually encouraged the film's welcome in the Arab world.

"They (the censorship authorities) think the film is anti-Semitic. That's why they are giving it such privilege," Darwish said".


Let me hear a big collective Homer Simpsonesque, "Dohh," from the American Christian community.

And then further on down in the article,

"I encouraged the movie because it withholds from Jews their claims that they are innocent of the Christ's blood," said Mohiy el-Din Abdel Aleem, a professor of media and journalism at Al Azhar University, when asked why Al Azhar had not objected to the movie.

Habib Malik, a professor of history and cultural studies at the Lebanese American University in Beirut, said the allegations of anti-Semitism that have surrounded the film are undoubtedly part of the film's appeal in Lebanon.

"Word got around that this movie was upsetting a lot of people in the Jewish community in the West, and people here are predisposed to be anti- Israel, and anti-Jewish in general, and I think that's one of the reasons why people have flocked to see it," said Malik ..."


It's hard to believe you can take, what you think of as, a message of love to another part of the world and find that it will get twisted into a confirmation of hatred.

We can't say we weren't duly warned by the Jewish community.

Help Daddy, Something's Wrong With Grandma Europa. She Might Be Having a Stroke

The German judicial system has been hard at work, all gears grinding and gaskets popping and smoke rising...

It seems the Germans have allowed two of the "suspected" 9/11 terrorists free in the past few weeks:

...a German appellate tribunal was throwing out the conviction of Mounir el-Motassadeq, the only terrorist on the planet to have been tried for and found guilty of complicity in the September 11 attacks. This, moreover, marked the second time in a month that the German judicial system had rocked the world. In early February, Motassadeq's friend and fellow Moroccan, Abdelghani Mzoudi, was acquitted by a Hamburg trial judge of the same 9/11 terrorism charges.

The Germans, of course, echo the widespread Democratic disdain for the Bush philosophy that terrorists are military enemies who cry out for a decisive military response. Berlin is far too nuanced for such benighted notions as enemy combatants, military tribunals, and preemptive strikes against an evil that would, in a heartbeat, destroy (and in fact may gradually be destroying) the rights and privileges of German civil society.

The two Moroccans were members of the Hamburg cell led by Mohammed Atta that spearheaded the carnage of September 11. Of that even Klaus Ruehle, the judge who acquitted Mzoudi last month, had little doubt. In court, both defendants pretended they were merely friends of Atta and the other cell members — hijackers Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah, and financier Ramzi bin al-Shibh (who would no doubt have been a hijacker had he not been unsuccessful in seeking authorization to enter the U.S. in 2001). The defendants' stories, however, were risible: Both men were shown to have traveled to al Qaeda camps for terrorist training in the late 1990's, and they were well known in Hamburg as virulent jihadists of the most anti-American, anti-Semitic stripe. Manifestly, their association with the Qaeda cell was no accident. Their conduct in support of the hijackers was extensive and blatantly purposeful — handling financial transactions and generally covering tracks in Germany so the hijackers could unobtrusively prepare for, and ultimately carry out, their deadly attacks in America. Mzoudi even helped prepare Atta's will before the latter went off on his suicide mission.

Both Mzoudi and Motassadeq were charged with 3,066 counts of accessory to murder and membership in a terrorist organization. In the rarified progressivism of Germany's law-enforcement system, that meant they faced a maximum, if convicted, of fifteen years in prison.


I've listened to lectures on several occasions from visiting Europeans who tell me they enjoy Americans because we're like children, all naiivete and enthusiasm (yeah, yeah, and we're stupid and we like sparkly things).

I can kind of understand what they mean, but then what does that make Europe? I think Europe is like an old, senile women - living by herself, in a welfare-subsidized apartment - who keeps forgetting to turn off the stove after she boils water for her tea.

Palestinian Child Abuse - Cult of Death? Child Sacrifice?

Hello Friends,

I was shaken last week as I read a series of articles about a couple of Palestinian children who tried to enter Israel with bombs, one boy with a bomb in his backpack laying right next to his Spiderman doll. I have a nephew, whom I love, who always wants to take his Spiderman doll to school, so that little detail got to me.

The thing is the kid was told by someone that he would be given money if he would carry this bomb. The bomb was to be set off, not by the kid himself, but, by the remote control of a cell phone call. It's not clear whether the kid truly understood what he doing when he took the bomb.

However, when he tried to pass through the Israeli checkpoint and the soldiers wanted to search them, then it became clear that he knew, or was coming to know, what that thing in his backpack was.

I just don't know what to say about this stuff today. I will have to think about it for a few days. However, since it is relatively fresh in the news, I want to provide some links to articles on the subject of chilren being used as suicide bombers:

Is Britain Trying to Tell Us Something?

When your wife starts talking a lot about a particular new man working in her office, you need to keep a careful eye on the signals she gives. Likewise, when the British press publishes an "Ode To Shiekh Yassin" (see my blog below) one week, and the next week publishes a "human interest" story about al Qaeda wives, you've got to worry.

From the London Independant:

Married to The Jihad: the lonely world of al-Qa'ida's wives
They may be rich, cultivated and beautiful; but when the West steps up its 'war on terror', their husbands and sons are in the firing line. Jan McGirk meets some remarkable women
27 March 2004


In the narrow slits between headscarf and veil, the eyes of two women glitter with fury and grief. Maha el Samnah, a newly widowed 47-year-old, is swathed in white; her twice-divorced eldest daughter, Zaynab, 24, wears black. They are sitting, for now, in a quiet bedsit in Islamabad. It is not their home. For the past two and a half years - since September 2001 - they have been fugitives: not because of anything they have done themselves, but because of their menfolk, who are al-Qa'ida fighters.

Maha and Zaynab are Canadians, from Toronto, where Zaynab, her sister and her four brothers were born.

Their rarely glimpsed world is both exotic and bizarre, combining luxury with hardship...

It is almost as if terrorism were the family business - although Maha vehemently denies this. "We believe in defending one's home, one's family, and one's faith," she says. "Like in that movie, Braveheart."

Even though divorce and death have now severed their direct marital ties with the terrorists, Maha and Zaynab remain linked to the men of al-Qa'ida by blood, by ideology and by shared experience.

The life of an al-Qa'ida wife is doubly lonely. She must live segregated from her menfolk, in line with the Bin Laden version of Islam; and she must live in hiding from the rest of the world, because of her husband's terrorist activities. Yet there is a certain community to be found among the spouses, who are united by their view that Bin Laden, or "Emir", as they call him, is the ultimate commander of his Islamic legions.

Maha, for example, has encountered two of Bin Laden's four wives in the course of her Afghan charity work. She came away impressed. "Osama has one wife who was very well-educated - a PhD in child education and psychology. She was the most practical Arab woman I ever met," Maha recalls.

Today, Maha says, she hankers after her palatial lifestyle, and resents her exiled existence in cramped quarters with no servants, no ice-cubes, and no way out. "She was bitter about Osama having all these other wives," recalls Maha.

Maha adds: "Most Arabs in al-Qa'ida are seriously rich. But we pay Canadian tax every year and know how to clean our own houses."


etc. etc. etc.

Maybe we should seek marriage counseling before we come home early one day and find the Islamofascist regime bending our lovely Britain over the kitchen table.

Oops! I shouldn't have said that. I'm not a very good Christian, am I? I guess that's what jealousy will do to a guy.

But seriously folks, these women need to be scorned out of society, not have puffy Good Housekeeping pieces written about them.

The Guardian - Liar, Lunatic, or Stupid?

The Guardian of Manchester published an obituary/glowing eulogy of Hamas "spiritual leader" Sheikh Ahmed Yassin on Tuesday March 23, 2004. Here are some excerpts:

"When, in October 1997, the halfblind, almost wholly paralyzed Sheikh Ahmed Yassin ... arrived in Gaza, after being released from an Israeli jail ... one Arab commentator likened him to Nelson Mandela.

The comparison must have made Yasser Arafat seethe inwardly, even as he heaped homage on the returning hero. In his view, if there were any Palestinian Mandela - any unique, historic leader of the Palestinian people - it was himself.

In truth, neither Arafat nor Yassin had Mandela's special greatness. But of the two, it was Yassin, the founder-leader of the militant Islamist organization Hamas, who came closer. The reason was not to be found in his beliefs... but in the facts of his career, and the part that certain, very personal, qualities - of selflessness, simplicity, conviction and a true sense of service - played in bringing it to fruition.

Yassin had personal glory largely thrust upon him. He was in his late 50s, and a very sick man, before he became a really potent force on the Middle East stage; and, as a prisoner in enemy Israeli jails, he had little practical to do with the devastating suicide bombings, from which, more than anything else, he derived that force."



I do not believe that the Guardian is so stupid (definition: ignorant of basic facts) as to believe that Yassin "had little practical to do with the devastating suicide bombings..."

Therefore I believe that the Guardian is either lying to it's readers in which case they are racists, or they are insane (definition: incapable of processing reality) in which case they are perpetuating racist ideas as a result of their insanity.



Since the Guardian won't tell you what the Sheikh is really like, here's some stuff I dug up.

As opposed to the Guardian, and many other major news outlets, who refer to Yassin as Hamas' "spiritual leader," the Hamas website itself refers to Yassin simply as "the leader of Hamas."

How about them apples?

In other places they also refer to him as "the founder of Hamas."

All you need to do to find out what the "spiritual leader" believed in is go to the Hamas website and type in "Yassin said" on their search bar and you will come up with multitudes of articles wherein the "spiritual leader" is quoted.

Here are some fun facts:

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The leader of Hamas said Friday that his group is making every effort to seize Zionist soldiers as bargaining chips for the release of Palestinians in Zionist jails.

He said that the segregation fence would not deter Palestinian resistance attacks deep inside the Zionist entity.

Halting martyrdom bombings and armed attacks was only possible after an end of occupation and its crimes, he elaborated.

He said that the Zionist entity was living a big illusion if it thought that the fence would halt Palestinian Jihad.

Sheikh Yassin described Palestinian Authority premier Ahmed Quria's call for a bi-national state as a reflection of the PA's political chaos.

He said that his Movement accepted a Palestinian state on the 1967 occupied lands on condition... that no recognition was made of the Hebrew state over the remaining 1948 occupied lands of Palestine.

Gaza - Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, founder and spiritual leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, has renewed rejection of a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Zionist conflict.

The Sheikh in an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel to be published today said that he opposed the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside a Zionist entity.

Hamas believes (and targets) that all Palestinians should live in their homeland along with followers of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, Sheikh Yassin said, adding, We are against a Jewish state that exercises apartheid on the Palestinian lands.

Asked whether there was any place at all for establishment of such a Jewish state, he said, "They can set up a state in Europe."

Sheikh Yassin said that his Movements resistance would continue until ejection of the Zionist occupation from all Palestinian soil.



In addition, here are some of the fruits of the spirit on display in the Hamas Charter:


This is the Charter of the Islamic Resistance (Hamas) which will reveal its face, unveil its identity, state its position, clarify its purpose, discuss its hopes, call for support to its cause and reinforcement, and for joining its ranks. For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave ...

...the Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to the realisation of Allah's promise, no matter how long that should take. The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
"The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree."

The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up...

...Nothing is loftier or deeper in Nationalism than waging Jihad against the enemy and confronting him when he sets foot on the land of the Muslims.

[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion ...

There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility.


And then the Charter veers into the land of The Protocols of the Learned Elder of Zion:

The enemies have understood that role, therefore they realize that if they can guide and educate [the Muslim women] in a way that would distance them from Islam, they would have won that war. Therefore, you can see them making consistent efforts [in that direction] by way of publicity and movies, curriculi of education and culture, using as their intermediaries their craftsmen who are part of the various Zionist Organizations which take on all sorts of names and shapes such as: the Free Masons, Rotary Clubs, gangs of spies and the like. All of them are nests of saboteurs and sabotage. Those Zionist organizations control vast material resources, which enable them to fulfill their mission amidst societies, with a view of implementing Zionist goals and sowing the concepts that can be of use to the enemy. Those organizations operate [in a situation] where Islam is absent from the arena and alienated from its people. Thus, the Muslims must fulfill their duty in confronting the schemes of those saboteurs. When Islam will retake possession of [the means to] guide the life [of the Muslims], it will wipe out those organizations which are the enemy of humanity and Islam.

Sheik Ahmed Yassin may have been a "spiritual leader," but the term means something completely different to his followers than it does in Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, of Hindi countries.

My contention is the Guardian clearly knows this. But they attempt to hide the facts.

Why? Because they are racist.

Why would I say they are racist? Because Yassin's cause is the destruction of Israel and his rhetoric, and the rhetoric of the organization he founded (Hamas), is racist.

The Guardian has to know this, and yet they don't speak of it in their editorial. They leave it out. Yassin's racism is central to his life and philosophy, so the choice to leave his racism out of an obituary which purports to explain his life's work, amounts to a decision to hide one of the most important facts of his life.

Why would the Guardian hide Yassin's racism?

My opinion is, they do not want their readers to know that the Palestinian "liberation movement" is motivated by racism because that fact would deligitimize the movement in the minds of it's readers.

By hiding the racism the Guardian is, in essence, creating Propaganda/advertising for Hamas. They are promoting Hamas. When you promote a racist organization you are a racist.

Chirac Says, "Let Them Eat Cake"

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blogging to bring you this.

I was cruising the internet, checking out stories, and I came across this.

Jacques Chirac, President of France, went to Tunisia and elucidated the Chirac Doctrine on Human Rights.

Chirac's talks with President Zine AlAbidine Ben Ali on the Middle East and the global war on terrorism were overshadowed by the case of Tunisian rights lawyer Radia Nasraoui, on hunger strike since October 15.

On the second and final day of Chirac's state visit, Nasraoui slammed statements by the French president glossing over Tunisia's rights record.

Referring to the hunger-striking lawyer, detained over her human rights advocacy and denunciation of torture, Chirac said on Wednesday: "We also have people in France who are staging hunger strikes, who have staged hunger strikes and who will doubtless stage hunger strikes in the future."

"The first human right is to eat, to be cared for, to receive an education and to have housing. From this point of view, we must remember that Tunisia is more advanced than many countries."

But Nasraoui reacted furiously on Thursday, telling AFP that "Mr Chirac told us in essence: eat up and shut up.


Chirac needs a refresher course on Democracy and The Rights of The People, for God's sake. Two centuries after the French people chauffered their queen to her rendevouz with the 72 virgins, Chirac goes to Tunisia and pulls a Marie Antoinette on them.

There is something very sick about France, if they have a President who thinks "the first human right is to eat."

What about freedom of speech, religion, right to own property, the right to vote, etc?

As my man the dissidentfrogman said,

"To eat, , to be cared for, to receive an education and to have housing", is not "the first of the human rights", but the UberStatist's dream. "Please, do shut up. All you need is a food voucher and see, I'm the one who delivers. Here you go, stop complaining."

War or Police Action?

I predicted that their would be a surge of anti-Semitism in the wake of the Yassin assasination. Thus far, it has not played out. The condemnations have remained relatively civil, if unfair and naiive.

Of course, Hamas and Al Qaeda have threatened, but that's to be expected. A few incidents in Toronto and France, while alarming, are really not out of the norm.

However, I do have one observation to make in light of this:

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said on arrival at a European Union foreign ministers' meeting that while Israel had a "need to defend itself" against terrorists, if it wanted to have "the full support of the international community, it needed to do so within the boundaries set by international law".

and these

These people don't realize we are in a WAR. We can not fight this as a police action. You can't arrest an entire diffuse network of people scattered throughout the world, working towards a common goal.

Besides, they declared war on us.

So, we would be foolish to fight any other way. War is war and law is law. I think I'll write more about this subject in the future.

Newsweek Consults a Terror Supporter for His Expertise On the Middle-East

Rashid Khalidi is, in my opinion, an anti-Semitic Holocaust minimizer and a terror supporter. He is also, in our inverted world, the director of Columbia University's Middle East Institute.

Alyssa Lappen wrote a well footnoted piece about Khalidi for frontpagemag.com

According to the NY Post, Khalidi is on record as declaring that violence against innocent Israeli's is fine because they are "in occupation" of Islamic land.

In a June 2002 speech to the conference of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Khalidi reportedly condemned violence against innocent civilians but then added: "The ones who are armed, the ones who are soldiers, the ones who are in occupation, that's different. That's resistance."

Newsweek sees fit to consult such a man as an expert.

I just don't get it.

University of Illinois Campus Newspaper Spews Anti-Israel and Anti-Jew Lies

"Jews Manipulate America."

It's ok, to print this in the Daily Illini? It must be because they did.

Looks like the Daily Illini staff are doing well in their Racism 101 class.

How about printing "Blacks are lazy and the Negro personality enjoys being enslaved." Would that be ok?

They've also printed anti-Semitic rumours claiming that Israel is cutting off the water supply to the Palestinian terrirtory by building the fence.

Guess what, they're not. But, for the Daily Illini to say Israel is doing such a thing is to claim that they are attempting genocide. Such statements fall somewhere on the continuum between "reprehensible journalism" and "outright anti-Semitism."

"Journalist Mariam Sobh wrote an article containing "quotes" from Ariel Sharon so egregious, not to mention stupid, I will not print them here. You can go to the link if you want to read her crap.

When called on the fact that they are printing lies at first the paper refused to correct or apologize for the distortions. Finally, several weeks later, the "journalist" Mariam Sobh offered what does not amount to an apology, and is hardly a correction saying she knew it was:

"too good to be true."

She admitted she wishes to believe lies about Ariel Sharon.

That's lovely.

She will most certainly pass Racism 101, and she ought to be able to sail through her 400 level Racism seminar on "Hitler and the Perpetuation of the Big Lie." I see bright horizons for this girl; Master, Doctorate, Sunday Morning Talk Shows.

Good job University of Illinois, you are a fine academic institution.


Victor David Hanson Drops Some Science On Us

Here's a quote from an blog by Vic:

When I Was Young…
When I was young, my parents in the early 1960s told me to ignore stories about the “Jews.” Of course, out here in rural California, I never met such distant persons, but only heard about them from disgruntled farmers (who, I wager, had never met any either). These pesky “Jews” apparently in some secretive cabal controlled the entire fruit-market of the United States! “They”—not the paradoxes of interstate commerce and the cutthroat nature of American marketing—explained why we got $3 a box for plums while “they” took $20.

Middle men, market manipulators, and secret smart guys who trafficked in inside breaks and shady deals—all these right-wing farmers used to swear pulled the strings of the American fruit market. When I asked my mother if this could possibly all be true, she would sigh, and say, “No, no, no. You see when people fail, or when they are angry, or they become afraid and confused, they always blame those who are different or successful or confident. And often that means Jewish people, most of whom our neighbors have never met.”

And then I grew old, and learned that it wasn't any more reactionary men of the soil who evoked the Jews to explain why they were not listened to, or felt weak, or were frustrated, but rather often very liberal, and self-acclaimed progressives. Instead of Shylock fruit merchants, the new sneaky Jew was the neoconservative—with a funny-sounding name like Wolfowitz or Perle who, due to some sinister genius, had hoodwinked red-blooded Americans into fighting and dying for the Likud party in Israel. Not 9-11, not Saddam Hussein's horrific record of genocide, not some systematic effort to end rogue states and terrorist havens, and not an idealism to bring consensual government to the landscape of the Middle East explained why we went to Iraq. No, it was once again the Jews.



By the way, I want to acknowledge that I am very to indebted to the dedication and genius behind the blog littlegreenfootballs.com

France - More Jihadi Jew-Hating?

Like I said, maybe it doesn't matter, but... link


TOULON, France - Attackers set fire to a Jewish community center in southeast France overnight, causing slight damage to the entry hall, police said Tuesday.

The assailants broke a window at the center in the southwestern city of Toulon and doused the interior with a flammable liquid that was then set on fire, police said. Several walls were blackened by flames, but there were no injuries.

It was not clear who carried out the attack, but officials note that such violence tends to coincide with rising Mideast tensions.


And check this quote out:

France has been battling anti-Semitic violence for more than two years, often involving attacks against Jewish schools, synagogues and community centers. In March 2002, a synagogue in the nearby city of Marseille was burned to the ground.

Yep, that's right. This has been going for two years, ever since Kristalnacht. No, I mean the "Jenin Massacre." No, I mean the Jenin Myth.

Toronto - Land of the Maple Leafs and Jihadi Jew-Hating

From the Toronto Star:

A spate of anti-Semitic vandalism in the Toronto area was the first topic debated in the opening of the Ontario legislature's spring session today as all three parties supported a motion condemning the recent attacks.
"The legislative assembly condemns the recent acts of anti-Semitism and expresses its continuing support for the government of Ontario's longstanding zero tolerance policy towards hate crimes," said the motion introduced by Premier Dalton McGuinty.

"This hatred is the stuff of cowards, and cowards like to work under cover of darkness," McGuinty told the legislature.

"It's up to the rest of us to stand up and speak up here and now, in the light of day."

David Zimmer, Liberal member for Toronto's Willowdale riding, said he was disturbed by the level of hate needed for someone to topple about two dozen headstones in a Jewish cemetery in his riding.

"There was $20,000 in damage, but the real cost cannot be calculated in dollars," Zimmer told the legislature.

"It is counted in tears, in sleepless nights, in locked doors and in anxiety."

Opposition Leader Ernie Eves offered the Conservatives' support for McGuinty's motion.

"I am saddened like all Ontarians and revolted by the actions" of the vandals that targeted Jewish citizens, said Eves.

In addition to the weekend attack at the Bathurst Lawn Memorial Park cemetery in North York, Nazi swastikas and slogans advocating death to Jewish people were also painted on several buildings in Toronto's north end.

Early last week, 13 homes and several cars in Vaughan were defaced with similar hate messages.




And then, many, many paragraphs down in the article (as my man Allah noted), finally, they mention the name of the man who was arrested for one of these incidents.



An early-morning incident today resulted in the arrest of one man in Toronto's west end. Police said patrolling officers spotted someone spray-painting a Star of David, an equal sign and a swastika on construction boarding.

Reza Safaei, 46, was charged with three counts of mischief under $5,000.

Police said they didn't believe the incident was linked to the earlier, more serious incidents.



Jihadi Jew-Hating? Well, what does it matter what the motive is? Clearly, it was Jew-Hating, but it fits the pattern, doesn't it?

Israel Kills a Killer
Prediction: Expect the Anti-Semitism to Be Ratcheted Up To Almost the Breaking Point


from an Associated Press article
By IBRAHIM BARZAK, Associated Press Writer

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Sheik Ahmed Yassin, the founder and leader of the Hamas militant group that targeted Israelis in suicide bombings, was killed by missiles fired from Israeli helicopters as he left a mosque at daybreak Monday, witnesses said.

Hamas, listed as a terrorist group by both the United States and Israel, vowed revenge against Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (news - web sites). The Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a militant group allied with Yasser Arafat (news - web sites)'s Fatah (news - web sites) movement, also promised swift retaliation.

Yassin was by far the most senior Palestinian militant killed in more than three years of Israeli-Palestinian fighting. Since September 2000, 474 people — the majority of them Israelis — have been killed in 112 Palestinian suicide bombings, most of them carried out by Hamas.

"He was responsible in a direct way for dozens of attacks and the deaths of hundreds of citizens of Israel, foreign citizens and security forces," said army spokeswoman Maj. Sharon Feingold.

One Israeli official recently said Yassin was "marked for death."


I can almost assure you court of world opinion and, probably, the United Nations itself will condemn Israel, using words like "atrocity," "Nazi's," "genocide," and "Holocaust."

Here's my word for it:

Retaliation

n : action taken in return for an injury or offense.

Here's another word for it:

Prudent

adj.
Wise in handling practical matters; exercising good judgment or common sense.
Careful in regard to one's own interests; provident.
Careful about one's conduct; circumspect.

Well done, Israel.

The Passion Of The Christ - Part 2

Well, now we know what Arafat, and his buddies, thought of the film:


Nabil Abu Rudeneh, one of Arafat's closest advisers, watched the film along with the veteran Palestinian leader ...

"The Palestinians are still daily being exposed to the kind of pain Jesus was exposed to during his crucifixion," Abu Rudeneh said in a statement after he viewed the movie.



It's funny, I thought about titling the previous entry - The Passion Of the Palestinian Christ - but no, I wouldn't do it because I thought to myself, "That's not very Christian of you, to jump to conclusions about the way they might think."

Listen, not only is that statement, by Abu Rudeneh, anti-Semitic, it's also anti-Christian. It is, at the same time, Holocaust Denial, and a denial of the profound reality that the God of the Universe sacrificed his Son's life for the sins of those who cursed Him.

I must say, though, I think Mel Gibson kind of set himself up for this kind of misunderstanding because of his obsessive focus on the physical reality of the crucifixion, rather than the spiritual reality.

What really happened on the cross, in my opinion, is that the Son of God chose to take the sins of the world upon Himself (I mean that quite literally - he took the evil deeds, the shame, the disgust, the nausea, the angst, the bitterness, He took everything, about every sin ever committed, past, present, and future, upon Himself, all at one time, in an incredible Sisyphean push of the rock up the hill), and He accepted it all (all the pain, the shame, etc.) into Himself, and vanquished it once and for all.

Mel Gibson did not show the spiritual reality of the crucifixion (that Yeshua/Jesus was murdered, the weapon being the sins of everyone past, present, and future) and, therefore, it is easy for people to misunderstand his movie.

The tragedy is that the movie will roll out of the West (where it has been an edifying experience for millions) into the East, where I think it truly will breed anti-Semitism.

Here's Why Jews Were Worried About The Passion of The Christ

What do you think Arafat thinks of the movie?

Suffer the Children ...

In Palestine you're never too young to go out Jew-killing.

The most senior Palestinian Authority religious figure, Mufti Sheikh Ikrimeh Sabri, is a vocal proponent of sending children on terrorist attacks. In an interview with the Egyptian paper Al-Ahram Al-Arabi, he explained his thoughts on child martyrs, as well as the joy of their mothers: "I feel the martyr is lucky because the angels usher him to his wedding in heaven. I feel the earth moves under the occupiers' feet... There is no doubt that a child [martyr] suggests that the new generation will carry on the mission with determination. The younger the martyr — the greater and the more I respect him...

Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi, one of the most popular Palestinian imams, is especially vocal on educating children to become martyrs by sending them on terrorist attacks. During a sermon at the 'Ijlin Mosque in Gaza, he repeats the following discussion he had with a child who approached him about becoming a suicide bomber: "A young man said to me, 'I am 14 years old, and I have four years left before I blow myself up'.... We, the Muslims on this good and blessed land, are all — each one of us — seekers of Martyrdom.... The Koran is very clear on this: The greatest enemies of the Islamic nation are the Jews, may Allah fight them.... Blessings for whoever assaulted a soldier.... Blessings for whoever has raised his sons on the education of jihad and Martyrdom; blessings for whoever has saved a bullet in order to stick it in a Jew's head..."

On another occasion, Madhi praised children who put on explosive belts in order to blow up Jews: "Shame and remorse on whoever refrained from raising his children on jihad... Blessings to whoever waged jihad for the sake of Allah ... Allah, show us a black day for the Jews ...


These are people of authority in Palestinian life. One, a state employee, the other, "one of the most popular Imams."

There now, that shows you what we mean by the New Anti-Semitism. It's like Nazi Germany in the 30's, but it's taking place in the Arab World, today. Clearly, they are not executing an Auschwitz ... yet.

All we can say is thank God they don't have nuclear weapons over there.

I Hate Thee! I Hate Thee! I Hate Thee!
No, Please Do Not Put the Fence Up, I Won't Know What to Do Without You!


Ok, help me to understand this. The Palestinian people hate the Israeli's so much they can't even stand to call them by their names (Israeli's) so, instead, they usually call them "the Jews," or "the Zionist Entity."

They hate them so much the official U.N. website of the Palestinian Authority calls for the destruction of the "Zionist Movement" (read clauses 19-23).

They hate them so much that their official state-employed clergy say things like this.

But now, with Israel close to completely sealing the border between the two countries, now the King of Jordan is afraid all the Palestinians will come running into his country?


King Abdullah flew to Israel by helicopter Thursday and spent several hours in talks with Sharon before returning home.

"The visit was meant to allay King Abdullah's fears that construction of the fence will prompt a flight of Palestinians over the border into Jordan,"


Why would the fact that they can't get into Israel cause them to flee their own land and rush to Jordan?

That's a great question, isn't it?

The Taliban of Tennesee

Of course, this blog is supposed to be about anti-Semitism, but for God's sake, I keep finding other things I think need commenting on.

Tenn. County Wants to Charge Homosexuals
Wed Mar 17, 1:37 PM ET Add U.S. National - AP to My Yahoo!


DAYTON, Tenn. - The county that was the site of the Scopes "Monkey Trial" over the teaching of evolution is asking lawmakers to amend state law so the county can charge homosexuals with crimes against nature.

The Rhea County commissioners approved the request 8-0 Tuesday.

Commissioner J.C. Fugate, who introduced the measure, also asked the county attorney to find a way to enact an ordinance banning homosexuals from living in the county.

"We need to keep them out of here," Fugate said.

The vote was denounced by Matt Nevels, president of the Chattanooga chapter of Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.

"That is the most farfetched idea put forth by any kind of public official," Nevels said. "I'm outraged."


Count me in with you on the outrage, Mr. Nevels.

I remember a few years ago when we had a Defense of Marriage Proposition on the ballot here in California, and, all of a sudden, my neighbors became politically active. They were going from house to house distributing lawn signs to and getting out the vote.

I had never seen my neighbors have anything to say about anything. But, boy oh boy, them homosexuals really got my neighbors panties all in a wad.

Hey listen, the Bible does say that Homosexuality is an abomination, but use a little common sense. It also says adultery is an abomination and dictates that the punishment is death by stoning. Remember the story of Mary Magdalene and the guys with stones, my brothers and sisters? Remember what Jesus said?

Do homosexuals hurt you? No. Then please stay out of their business. It's called freedom my friends.

I've got an idea, maybe Rhea county can secede from the Union, how's that?

First They Came for the Jews and I Did Not Speak Up ... Then they Came For Me

Many of us Christians are concerned, and rightly so, with how our voice is silenced, ignored, and mocked in the American media. It is rare to see a Christian portrayed, in any TV show or movie, as a nuanced, thinking human being.

Some Christians are aware and concerned with the persecution of Christians in China, where people are sometimes tortured for spreading the Gospel.

But, it is the rare Christian who is aware of the outright hatred of Christians in much of the Islamic world. Oh yeah, Islamic militants call us "Infidels" and the "Great Satan," but we don't know how serious those words are.

Nearly 2 million of our brothers and sisters have been killed, by Islamic militants, through outright murder and politically created famine, in the country of Sudan, for the crime of being Christians. We, for the most part, are not aware. The media does not tell us. Our churches do not tell us.

We, as Christians, have suffered something comparable to (not the equivalent of) 1/3 of a Holocaust, in the country of Sudan, and we, in general, do not know about it.

The conditions are not the same, there are no gas chambers, there is not a central philosophical figure (like Hitler) rallying the troops, the genocide has taken place over a period of 20 years, so the situation is diffused and, thus, hard to explain and discuss, but that's no excuse to ignore it.

Here's a link to an article that appeared in Worldnetdaily.com

Muslim Rights Group Promotes for Neo-Nazi

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is the Muslim Rights group usually quoted in the media when a racist beats up a Muslim in this country. That's all well and good, but CAIR is an odd and scary group. They've had several members arrested for aiding and funding terrorist organizations. CAIR, as an organization, was birthed out of a "front organization for Hamas" (Palestinian Terrorist Organization that blows up Jews). One of their advisory board members was implicated, albeit never indicted, in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. And last, but not least, CAIR at one time called the conviction of the 1993 World Trade Center conspirators "a travesty of justice."

Muslim Rights? I believe Muslims need a more ethical group to represent them. Certainly, Muslims did not vote for this group to represent them, so why does the media insist on using CAIR as a reference on Muslim Rights issues?

Anyway, let's get down to it. The latest ridiculous thing CAIR has done is to promote the public speaking engagement of a Neo-Nazi.

Members of the Muslim Student Association and the community will have the chance to sample Middle Eastern cuisine and learn how to better bridge the gap between Islam and Christianity during upcoming events at Western Michigan University.

"The purpose of this event is to promote peace, tolerance and understanding between the two largest religions in the world," said Sarah Husain, sophomore majoring in business and president of the public relations committee of MSA.

William Baker, an internationally known speaker from California and founder of Christians and Muslims for Peace, will be at the event, Husain said.


William Baker is not merely an internationally known speaker, he is an internationally known Neo-Nazi.

Wow. Impressive, how they get away with this (expletive deleted - I wouldn't want the FCC to get up in arms) right under our very noses.

Foothill College Professor Spouts anti-Semitic Ideas in Campus Newspaper

Foothill College (located "near San Franciso", according to their website) Professor Dr. Leighton Armitage was interviewed in the campus newspaper The Sentinel. The subject of the interview was supposed to be Israel's fence. The real subject of the interview was "the Jews."

I think it's really convenient, that they (the Jews) happen to have something that they can use against anyone who accuses them of anything. IN other words, if you saw that what they're doing is something akin to the holocaust, what will they saw? "You're an anti-Semite, you're anti Jewish, you just want to try and destroy the Jewish religion." It's so convenient. It allows them to do exactly what was done to them. And what are they doing with Palestinians, every day? They're killing them. They're walling them in, they're essentially doing the same thing that was done to them. Of course they're not tattooing the numbers into the arm, and they're not taking their glasses and their gold fillings, and everything else, as far as I know, but they're still slaughtering these people. Now what's with that? It's exactly what Hitler did to the Jews.

Exactly.

It seems that maybe Dr. Armitage has a wee bit of a problem making moral distinctions.

He also seems to have a problem with aesthetics:

CP: So the Jews pretty much aren't better than.....

A: I'd saw that if anything, they're learned from their tormentors. That's where it's beautiful for them, they have this convenient thing. If you start saying that what they're doing is wrong, what can they throw at you? Anti-Semitism.


Wow, how beautiful.

There's a great analysis of the interview at frontpagemag.com.

Man Bites Dog and Reuters Headline is "Dog Bites Man"

Ok, so we know the Iraqi's, represented by the unelected Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani, are not happy with thier Constitution. But, when they give their reason for being unhappy it's because "the Jews" wrote it? And Reuters doesn't think that's worthy of a headline?


Hardline Shi'ites Denounce Iraq's New Constitution

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Around 2,000 supporters of a hard-line Shi'ite Muslim group gathered in Baghdad Friday to denounce the country's new interim constitution, in the latest show of strength by Shi'ites demanding greater influence.

The protesters were mostly supporters of the "Group of the Virtuous," a Shi'ite group calling for direct implementation of Islamic law and the establishment of a theocratic political system similar to Iran's.

"They want Iraq (news - web sites) to split into many countries, and they want us to be their subjects," they chanted. "We will never accept a constitution written by the Jews."



So, now, let's think about this. If this were the 1930's and Hitler were rising to power and he's giving a speech something along the lines of,

"We true Germans are enraged and humiliated by this economic depression because it was caused by the Jews ..."

Reuters would just report "Hitler Says Germans Unhappy With Economic Downturn," right?

Wait, that's pretty much how the news agencies did report back then, isn't it? Maybe I'm wrong to keep insisting this is the 21st century. Maybe this is the 1930's.

Michael Powell - King Of All Media?

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blogging to bring you this:

Howard Stern may have proclaimed himself King of All Media, but Michael Powell seems to want to take the crown away from him.

There are two issues here:

1) While the FCC should have the right to regulate specific offenses such as nudity, or the use of certain words, it should not be allowed to regulate innuendo because the words and phrases used to create innuendo are constantly morphing. Innuendo is, therefore, impossible to define with the necessary degree of accuracy needed to protect free speech.

2) While the FCC should be allowed to regulate communications which go out to everyone over the public airwaves, it should not be allowed to regulate Satellite, Cable, or the Internet, which are mediums of choice, in other words you have to buy them.

Freedom of Speech and Expression needs to be jealously guarded, and the Church should be at the forefront of the battle. Here's why:

1) God created us in His Image. Many thinking people agree that this means that he created us to have free will and to be creative beings.

2) Speech which encompasses the written word, film, photography, music, journalism, etc. is, as Dennis Prager says, "how we see what we are thinking." It is how we organize, categorize, and connect our thoughts to the thoughts of others. This process is what allows us to creatively build ideas in science and the political world.

3) If we are not cognizant of how and what we think, and we are not able to freely organize, categorize, and build our thoughts, then we do not have control over our thoughts, which of course is the opposite of free will.


In other words, the annihilation of free speech voids God's purpose for human life.


Now, I don't believe that Michael Powell is truly, in his mind, seeking to annihilate free speech. I don't think he's an evil man. He does, in my opinion, have authority he should not have. Here's how it's stated on the FCC web site. A broadcast is obscene if:

An average person, applying contemporary community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest;

The material must depict or describe, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; and

The material, taken as a whole, must lack serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.


In other words, they don't know how to define obscenity, but they know it when they see it.

There is a law which tells us that there are seven words we can not say over public airwaves. (George Carlin did a very funny bit about that law back in the 70's.)

- Yes, even Christians can laugh at a bit like that -

That law seems to be a decent idea. We don't truly need to use those words on public airwaves to express our ideas.

To try to limit or control innuendo is another thing entirely because, as I said it's constantly morphing.

A simple rule for Michael Powell, the FCC, and anyone else in our government: If you don't have a law specifying the offense then you don't have Consitutional grounds to prosecute or fine anyone. So, you do not have grounds to go after a person for innuendo.

In addition, as long as the distribution of the communication (free speech) is limited to those who choose to buy/consume it (i.e. not on public airwaves or performed or shown in the public arena) then it should be allowed, with the following exception:

1) depiction of real physical harm to other humans (such as snuff films, "bum fights," or any other work which is simply the gratuitous recording of what is already on the books as a crime. Journalism needs to be exempted from this obviously. Journalists report on crime all the time, and that is necessary.

Now, you might be able to add some exceptions to my list. But the spirit of the idea remains the same.

To me, the idea that government should be regulating cable, or satellite, TV or radio, is ridiculous.

I repeat, Cable and Satellite Radio and TV are choice mediums. You have to buy them. Just like you have to buy books. Should the FCC be "regulating" books? Books are communications, right?

Hizbollah Nazi Salute

Hizbollah is a political/humanitarian (terrorist) organization with offices in Beirut and military training camps in the Bekkah Valley of Lebanon. They have 8 seats in the Lebanese Parliament. They are known to lob rockets across the border into Israel and their stated objective is to destroy the state of Israel.

Here's an enlightening set of photos.

Once again, we're in the 21st century, right?

Reuters also ran photos of Hizbollahs Nazi Salute in November 2003. However, while the page is still there it now lacks any content.

Malaysian Political and Spiritual Leaders Spout anti-Semitism

Hola Amigos,
Today we are going to start showing you some concrete examples of this New Anti-Semitism and the mindset behind it.

In an article from AP via Yahoo.com we find that the "Spiritual Leader" of the major Malaysian Islamic political opposition to the ruling party in the upcoming elections has some lovely chicken soup for the soul he wants to share with us:

The fundamentalist Pan-Malaysia Islamic party's spiritual leader, widely respected cleric Nik Aziz Nik Mat, said earlier that Muslims "naturally, will go to heaven for choosing an Islamic party, while those who support un-Islamic parties will logically go to hell."

Yes folks, welcome to the 21st century.

In the past Mr. Nik Aziz Nik Mat has been on the record spouting racist, anti-Semitic trash in the Toronto Star . Check this out:

He said Dr Mahathir was merely stating historic facts about the Jews at the opening session of the 10th Organisation of the Islamic Conference Summit on Thursday.

“I don’t think Dr Mahathir is anti-Jew but he is against their attitude.


“This is in line with Islamic teachings. Any human being, regardless of race, who follows the attitude of the Jews, must be opposed by Muslims,” he told reporters after opening the Selinsing state constituency family day here yesterday.

Nik Aziz, who is also PAS religious adviser, said this when asked to comment on the Western leaders’ condemnation of Dr Mahathir, accusing him of being anti-Semitic.

Leaders of the European Union, the United States, Israel and Australia criticised the Prime Minister for his comments, saying he was calling on Muslims to wage war against the Jews.

Nik Aziz said the attitude of the Jews must be criticised because they had done much to make things difficult for Muslims.

“Since the era of Prophet Muhammad, they have always created all sorts of problems for the international community and all the problems are caused by their attitude,” he added.


Hmm. Interesting. I will remind you, this is a "Spiritual Leader."

In addition, you might want to note that these comments were made in defense of Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir's anti-Semitic rant

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad (said) that "Jews ruled the world by proxy".

Dr Mahathir, who is retiring at the end of this month, told a meeting of Islamic leaders in Malaysia that it was time for Muslims to exploit what he termed the increasing arrogance of the Jewish people and called on the Islamic world to unite to defeat Israel .

"The Europeans killed six million Jews out of 12 million but today the Jews rule this world by proxy," Dr Mahathir said.

"They get others to fight and die for them, 1.3 billion Muslims cannot be defeated by a few million Jews."


Once again, these are "Political" and "Spiritual Leaders" of the country of Malaysia; a country in Asia. What do these people know about Jews anyway? Do they even have Jews in Asia?

Call me Pastorius. I'm sure that because of the content of this blog I will eventually be getting emails asking if the name is Jewish. No, it's the name of the "Greatest Bass Player in the World". Do with that what you will. I'd suggest listening to his music. "John and Mary, from the Word of Mouth CD, is a good place to start.

But, anyway, here's the thing, we are a group of Christians who became galvanized by the mediatrics surrounding what became known as the "Jenin Massacre" and was later shown to be the "Jenin Myth." In case you aren't familiar, the Jenin situation occured in April of 2002. On Passover (Jewish Holiday, for all you brothers and sisters who don't read your "Old Testament") 2002, a Palestinian Suicide Bomber (not a militant/insurrectionist) went into an Israeli restaurant pulled his rip cord and killed 29 Jews. (Congrats, you fool, now you get to live with a bunch of tantalizing virgins. I hope the jokes on you and they remain virgins for all eternity. Sartre couldn't have imagined such an exquisite hell.)

So what was Israel's reaction? Did they go nuclear? No. Did they respond by dropping conventional bombs? No. Did they shut down the "Palestinian Authority (aka Palestinian Liberation Organization, aka Jew-killers)? No.

Instead, they went to the source. Most of the recent Suicide Bombers had emanated from one city ("Refugee camp") called Jenin. So Isreal used it's intelligence and went into Jenin with foot soldiers and bulldozers to round up (Militants? Insurrectionists?) the future Jew-killers/brainwashed martyrdom seekers and their cowardly organizers/Nazis.

The media went ballistic and accused Israel of all sorts of atrocities. One outlet said they witnessed vicious aerial bombardment by the Israeli Air Force. Several claimed massacres totaling in the thousands. Another claimed mass graves.

At the time, I was a relatively typical Chrisitan (read: "The Holocaust happened a long time ago. It will never happen again. We love the Jews now. Let's get together and sing some praise songs.) But reading and hearing these reports in major newspapers and Network News gave me pause. Why would Israel all of the sudden go ballistic like that? They've had nuclear weapons for years (I know, I know. It's not confirmed). They have one of the mightiest militaries this world has ever seen, and yet, they've always shown restraint.

Why, all of a sudden?

Well, I started to read the reports. And, unbeknownst to me, several other people at my church were doing the same. And we all noticed the inconcistencies in the various accounts. And we all started to email our Pastor saying "look what's happening here." And since we were all similarly obsessed, he put us in touch with each other.

By the way, when the whole Jenin thing came out in the wash, Human Rights Watch said the there were 53 Palestinians killed, the majority of them combatants. So there was no "massacre." There no mass graves. Indeed, Israel did not use it's Air Force at all either.

We started to research and we found that anti-Semitism was blazing like a wild fire across the world. Students at San Francisco State were carrying banners equating the state of Israel with Hitler. Cartoons in major European newspapers were depicting Jews in ugly and stereotypcial/racist fashion. The head of the International Red Cross was telling people he couldn't include the Israeli Magen David Alom (Ambulance and emergency response network) as part of the Red Cross organization because if he did "he might as well include the swastika."

I was truly frightened, and angry.

So, we all decided to do something about it. We wrote a paper and distributed it to Pastors with the intention of getting the Christians out to support the Jews intheir time of need.

We've had some success and some failure. The Pastors at our church spend time with us and consider our viewpoint.

In general, however, while everybody agrees you shouldn't say bad things about the Jews or do bad things to them. But to do much of anything about it? Well, you see that's getting into tricky political situations, and that's not what church is about, and the State of Israel is somewhat responsible for their situation, and there's racism of all sorts all over the world, etc. etc. etc.

Merde! Merde! Merde!

So, now we're gonna take it to another level. Our intention is to get the word out via this blog. We hope to network with other likeminded blogs with the goal of making more and more people aware of the apalling fever of The New Anti-Semitism which is sweeping the globe.

The most important thing, though, is even if we are a voice crying out in the wilderness,

WE WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE AWARE, AND DO CARE, AND ARE WILLING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE PROBLEM.

And I think you'll be happy to know that we are not the type of Christians who see the Jews, and the State of Israel, as gears in the watchworks needed to get the countdown to Armageddon started.

No, we'd actually like Jewish people to have a state, that being Israel, where they can live peacefully.

We do believe Genesis 12:3 in which God says of the Israeli people,

"I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

We also believe what it says in the book of Romans, Chapter 11 verses 16-21,

... do not be arrogant toward the branches (the Jews) ; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you."

I want to say thank you to the Jewish people for all the contributions that you have made to the human race, not the least being the fact that you have carried and preserved the Word of God for the human race's benefit.

Besides that, you all sure do win alot of them Nobel Prizes.

Welcome. Posts will start appearing soon.
