Front Page Mag Tag


A Front Page Magazine roundup for the last couple of days. Yesterday, they posted an article on the broadcast of an anti-Semitic miniseries on Jordanian TV, in celebration of Ramadan:


For Ramadan 2005, the new Jordanian TV channel Al-Mamnou' is airing the Syrian-produced TV series Al-Shatat ( "Diaspora" ). [1] The series, which was first aired on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV during Ramadan 2003, purports to tell the story of Zionism from 1812 up to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and, like the Egyptian series Knight Without a Horse [2] that was aired during Ramadan 2002, depicts a "global Jewish government" that is described in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It also depicts the notorious blood libel - Jews slaughtering a Christian child to use his blood for Passover matzos.


In the series' opening scene, set in Romania in 1812, the dying Amschel Rothschild divides Europe amongst his five sons. To view this clip, visit http://memritv.org/search.asp?ACT=S9&P1=887.

The following is the transcript:

Amschel Rothschild: "All the nations that violate the religion of the Jews originated from the seed of a stinking and filthy ass. Rule them in secret and in public, with strength and oppression through deceit and cunning, and do not allow any nation to share your control of the world...
"God has honored us, the Jews, with the mission of ruling the world using money, using science, using politics, using murder, using sex, using any means..."


One of Amschel Rothschild's sons: "I don't understand anything. Someone must explain to me."

Amschel Rothschild: "If you listen till the end, you will understand. God has promised us that we will take revenge on those who have exiled us and that we will beat them. That is why he ordered us to establish a Jewish state in exile. He gave me the honor of being the most important man in this government. The mission of the government is to preserve the Jewish religion and to gain control over the world - the entire world - through loyal collaborators who will infiltrate the foreign governments and will impose their ideas on them."


One of Amschel Rothschild's sons: "Father, rest."

Amschel Rothschild: "My role is finished. Now it is your turn. Europe is not easy. Therefore, you must all stand together... Therefore, you must all stand together in order to destroy it (Europe) state by state, country by country. It should burn with wars and internal strife."


Now wait, wasn't it the Europeans who tried to destroy the Jews? Funny how those Islamists love to invert things like that.

Next up, Frank Gaffney penned an article discussing the Senate cancellation of hearings to look into Saudi support of terror and hate:


Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee was supposed to focus long-overdue attention on the single most important factor in the future course of the War for the Free World: Which side is Saudi Arabia on? Unfortunately, the press of other business has caused this most timely of hearings to be postponed.

The reason this question deserves urgent attention should be obvious: Since November 2001, there has been a roughly three-fold increase in the price of a barrel of oil, from $18 to as much as $70. As a result, Saudi Arabia — which currently exports about 10 million barrels per day — receives an extra half billion dollars every day from oil-consuming nations.

If even a fraction of that $500 million dollars in found-money – to say nothing of the other resources of the Saudi kingdom – is being put in the service of our Islamofascist enemies, we are likely to face an even more serious problem in the future than we do today.

As today’s Judiciary Committee hearing would surely have demonstrated, it is a safe bet that a significant portion of the Saudis’ petro-windfall will be put in the hands of Islamist totalitarians bent on our destruction.


Go read the rest:

Daniel Pipes discusses how the Islamic Jihadis use accusations of "Islamophobia" to deflect attention from, well, from their Islamic Jihadism:


An Islamist group named Hizb ut-Tahrir seeks to bring the world under Islamic law and advocates suicide attacks against Israelis. Facing proscription in Great Britain, it opened a clandestine front operation at British universities called “Stop Islamophobia,” the Sunday Times has revealed.

Stop what, you ask?

Coined in Great Britain a decade ago, the neologism Islamophobia was launched in 1996 by a self-proclaimed “Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia.” The word literally means “undue fear of Islam” but it is used to mean “prejudice against Muslims” and joins over 500 other phobias spanning virtually every aspect of life.

The term has achieved a degree of linguistic and political acceptance, to the point that the secretary-general of the United Nations presided over a December 2004 conference titled “Confronting Islamophobia,” and in May a Council of Europe summit condemned “Islamophobia.”

The term presents several problems, however. First, what exactly constitutes an “undue fear of Islam” when Muslims acting in the name of Islam today make up the premier source of worldwide aggression, both verbal and physical, versus non-Muslims and Muslims alike? What, one wonders, is the proper amount of fear?

Second, while prejudice against Muslims certainly exists, “Islamophobia” deceptively conflates two distinct phenomena: fear of Islam and fear of radical Islam.


Clearly, we have reason to be afraid of radical Islamists. They threaten to "wipe Israel off the map." They threaten "Death to America." They threaten to establish a worldwide Islamic Caliphate governed by Sharia law, where women will be treated as slaves, and homosexuals and adulterers will be stoned to death.

How could it be wrong to oppose such a philosophy, unless maybe, could it be that's all there is to Islam? The answer to that question is up to Muslims. They can show us that Islam is truly a "Religion of Peace" by opposing the Jihadis right along with the rest of us.

How's that?
