ISRAEL SO UPSET AT THE GOLDSTONE REPORT

THEY WILL IGNORE THE RECOMMENDATIONS NO MATTER WHAT

relying on precedents summarised by http://whatreallyhappened.com as follows
1. Last Spring, Rose Gottemoeller, an assistant secretary of state and Washington's chief nuclear arms negotiator, asked Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel refused.
2. The United Nations passed a resolution calling on Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and to submit to inspections. Israel refused.
3. The IAEA asked Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and to submit to inspections. Israel refused.
4. Iran's formal notification to the IAEA of the planned construction of the backup fuel-rod facility underscores that Iran is playing by the rules of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which Iran has signed.
5. Iran allows IAEA inspections of all its facilities.
6. Contrary to face-saving claims, it appears that the US and Israel were both caught off guard by Iran's announcement. The reasoning is simple. Had the US or Israel announced the existence of he new facility before Iran's notified the IAEA, it would have put Iran on the defensive. As it is now, the US and Israel seem to be playing catch up, casting doubt on the veracity of Israel's claims to "know" that Iran is a nuclear threat.
7. The IAEA and all 16 United States Intelligence Agencies are unanimous in agreement that Iran is not building and does not possess nuclear weapons.
8. In 1986, Mordachai Vanunu blew the whistle and provided photographs showing Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons factory underneath the reactor at Dimona.
9. Israel made the same accusations against Iraq that it is making against Iran, leading up to Israel's bombing of the power station at Osirik. Following the invasion of 2003, international experts examined the ruins of the power station at Osirik and found no evidence of a clandestine weapons factory in the rubble.
10. The United Nations has just released the Goldstone Report, a scathing report which accuses Israel of 37 specific war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza earlier this year. Israel has denounced the report as "Anti-Semitic (even though Judge Goldstone is himself Jewish), and the United States will block the report from being referred to the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, thereby making the US Government an accessory after-the-fact.

Deception, spin and lies

The Creed of Zionism

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born musician, writer and anti-racism campaigner.He is one of the public figures who devoted his art, energy and time to condemn Zionist machinations. Every now and then, Gilad writes an article not to disfigure the State of Israel but to show its ugly face. This is an article he published on http://www.redress.cc

***********
Israel can fool Western leaders but it can no longer fool the people
Gilad Atzmon argues that the success of Israeli leaders in hoodwinking Western politicians and historians is slowly beginning to unravel as ordinary people wake up to their deception, spin and lies.

"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time." (Abraham Lincoln, 1809-65)

Less than a week after Ankara cancelled an air exercise with Israel, Turkey’s state-sponsored channel TRT1 broadcast "Ayrilik" ("Farewell"), a new prime-time TV show that depicts the true image of Israel’s genocidal military operation in Gaza last January. The Israelis are not happy. "Broadcasting this series is a serious case of state-sponsored incitement,” Israel's foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said on 15 October. “Such a series, which doesn’t even have a weak connection to reality presents the IDF's [Israel Defence Forces] soldiers as murderers of innocent children,” he added. I wonder whether one should remind the hardliner Lieberman, who happens to be an enthusiastic ethnic cleanser and a proud Judaeo supremacist racist, that the reality on the ground last January was sufficiently “connected” to warrant a inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity. Israel’s genocidal war against the people of Gaza left over 1400 Palestinians dead. It also left thousands more injured, most of them children, women and elderly people. However, for once Lieberman happens to read the map. The Turkish TV show indeed depicts the IDF’s soldiers as murderers of children, women and the elderly for this is what Israeli soldiers are and this is exactly what Israel stands for politically, symbolically, ideologically and practically.

Although Lieberman is trying to appease his Israeli constituency and may even succeed in doing so, his attempt to put pressure on Turkish TV and the Turkish government is unlikely to work. By now we all know that Israel is all about the establishment of a “Jew-only state” in a stolen land called Palestine. As it happens, we tend to spend a lot of time writing about and analysing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But the facts on the ground are actually very simple. Zionism is an ideology that inspired the plunder of Palestine. Israel has put the robbery of Palestine and the Palestinians into practice. We are talking here about a national revival project that is taking place at the expense of another people. It is a murderous project inherently inspired by the Bible and an unethical plundering project of “home coming”. It is a lethal combination of some deadly interpretations of the Old Testament together with a non-ethical present. The only question to be asked is how they have got away with it? How do they continue to get away with plunder, murder, spreading white phosphorus and piling up nuclear weapons?

Spin, deception and lies are the answer

A few weeks ago, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stood in front of the UN waving the Wannsee Conference Protocol, suggesting that he was holding the “proof of the Nazi extermination of European Jewry”. With typical histrionics, he pleaded for the nations empathy. “Is this a lie?” he cried out. Embarrassingly, although the document he presented to the assembly was genuine, he was actually spinning the usual Zionist lines. The Wannsee Protocol refers in a rather general manner to the deportation to the east of the entire Jewish population of Germany and German-occupied territories. Although the document refers to the “Final solution”, the very “solution” it prescribed is rather different from the common interpretation offered by the Zionist Shoa narrative. The Wannsee Protocol refers basically to a sinister plan to exhaust the deported Jews by getting them to work in hard labour camps. As much as the Wannsee document is devastating, its relevance to the history of the Holocaust is rather limited, for the “Wannsee plan” has never materialized into an actual operational programme. It has actually nothing to do with the historicity of Jewish extermination known as theShoa. It doesn’t set any plan for death camps or gas chambers whatsoever. As a legal document, it proves nothing but general Nazi inclinations. As a historical document, it by no means “proves” theShoa and the extermination of the Jews; it just affirms that the Nazi regime was committed to the idea of Judenreine (free of Jews). However, this fact is well established and widely accepted even by most if not all Holocaust revisionists. As much as Netanyahu insisted on boosting the Holocaust with fresh credibility, he ended up waving a relatively insignificant piece of paper in front of the nations. Needless to say, he got away with it. However, far more crucial is the fact that the Wannsee Protocol outlines a programme that is not that different from Lieberman’s deadly plan for the Palestinians. In reality, it is the Jewish state that murders Palestinians en masse and starves those who survive. Moreover, it is very interesting also to elaborate on the following questions: how is it that the leader of the Jewish state stood in front of the world’s nation and spun his lines in broad daylight in the name of Israel and in the name of the Jewish people? What can we learn from the fact that an Israeli leader tried to fool the entire UN General Assembly? How is it that as Israeli prime minister managed to divert attention so easily from his own crimes against humanity that are taking place in the present with a relatively insignificant historical document? In short, how does he get away with it? The answer may be pretty trivial. As with the case of the Mossad motto, they make their wars by deception. The entire Jewish revival project is grounded on sets of lies. The entire tale of Jewish “home coming” is nothing less than a collective crime committed in broad daylight and based on false arguments and lies. Initially, Zionists were deceiving their fellow Jews but as time passed by they have been extending their tactics. For more than a while they have been spinning lies to us all. The Israelis and Zionists are born into a lie, they live their life through a lie, they tend to believe that they can get away with lies and deception, and the sad truth must be said: as far as world leaders are concerned, they actually do get away with it. As we know, not a single world leader challenged Netanyahu’s spin at the UN. More disturbing is the fact that not a single historian or intellectual tried to point out to the Israeli prime minister that, more than anything else, the Wannsee Protocol actually describes his own policies at home. Very few world leaders have the guts to oppose the Zionist spin operation. Recently, we have witnessed the courageous Iranian president, Mahmud Ahmadinejad, Venezuela’s leader, Hugo Chavez, and the Turkish prime minister, Tayyip Erdogan, challenge the Israeli lies. This is not a lot, considering the colossal atrocities committed by the Jewish state. However, it is better than nothing. The good news is that humanism and humanity are not exactly in the possession of politicians or so-called “world leaders”. It is actually our property, the property of members of the human race, the people out there who are witnessing the emerging evil. True humanity and humanism are delivered by kindness and an aspiration for ethics and truthfulness. In most cases it is actually artists and ordinary people who transform humanism into a vivid message. Our electedinterventionists insist on dragging us all into more and more Zionist wars in the name of the Holocaust, democracy and liberation. Tragically, our Western leaders are still silenced or at least “captivated” by Zionist lies. But this shouldn’t be a major concern anymore. The betrayal of Western ideologies (left, right and centre), politicians and institutions are an established fact. Succumbing to Zionist lies is apparently just one symptom among many. Not only will truth win, it is actually winning already. The identification of the Zionist spin is becoming common knowledge. As the foggy cloud of the Zionist brutality expands, we all develop a growing yearning for some beams of truth and grace. We are beginning to grasp that they make their wars by through deception. They may win a few more pyrrhic battles but they are losing the war.

The Encyclopedia of the Jews, Judaism, and Zionism

The following content appeared on
It's addressing those who cannot read the original Arabic document by Dr El Messiri.
Dr El Messiri is a man who dedicated his life to unfold the intricacies Zionists knowingly plunged the world in. Intricacies that have accommodated the State of Israel for more than half a century and served as alibi for their typical and unprecedented crimes.

Introduction of the document:
The Encyclopedia of the Jews, Judaism, and Zionism is the product of over 25 years of research and critical inquiry. An encyclopedia on almost all aspects of Judaism, the Jews, Zionism, and Israel, written by a non-Jewish Arab, is considered the first of its Kind. It is not only a deconstructive encyclopedia, taking a critical stance vis a vis its subject matter, but also a reconstructive one, suggesting alternative ways of looking at Jewish, Zionist, and Israeli phenomena, and new terminology to deal with them.
The Encyclopedia deals with all aspects of the history of the ancient Hebrews, and that of the Jewish communities all over the world, covering the world-wide numbers and distribution of the Jewish communities, their main traits, and their organizational institution, as well as their relationships with their respective homelands and with the Zionist state. It also deals with the major Jewish personalities (such as Maimonides) and non-Jewish personalities (such as Napoleon and Hitler) that figure prominently in the histories of the Jewish communities. The Encyclopedia, moreover, deals with almost all aspects of Judaism, its sects and holy books, its rituals, its crisis in the modern times, and its relationship with both Zionism and anti-Semitism. It also covers the Zionist movement, its activities, "schools", and main figures, as well as some of the main aspects of the Zionist State.
The Encyclopedia is decontructive/ reconstructive in as far as it does the following:
1-Presents an alternative general history of Judaism, the Jews, Zionism, and Israel.
2-Provides precise definitions of the essential Jewish and Zionist concepts and terms, giving a new history thereof, and underscoring their problematic aspects.
3-Examines biased concepts and terms, in order to replace them by more neutral and explanatory ones.
The Encyclopedia consists of eight volumes, each dealing with a specific topic, comprising a number of parts. Each part, in turn, consists of a number of chapters divided into entries. The total number of entries is 2300, and the average number of pages in each volume is about 400 pages.

War Criminals Are Becoming Arbiters of the Law

Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He is coauthor of The Tyranny of Good Intentions. He wrote the following article in http://www.counterpunch.org focusing on the double standard Zionists are using to falsify Goldstone Report.
**********
The double standard under which the Israeli government operates is too much for everyone except the brainwashed Americans. Even the very Israeli Jerusalem Post can see the double standard displayed by “all of Israel now speaking in one voice against the Goldstone report”:
“This is the Israeli notion of a fair deal: We’re entitled to do whatever the hell we want to the Palestinians because, by definition, whatever we do to them is self-defense. They, however, are not entitled to lift a finger against us because, by definition, whatever they do to us is terrorism.
“That’s the way it’s always been, that’s the way it was in Operation Cast Lead.
“And there are no limits on our right to self-defense. There is no such thing as ‘disproportionate.’
“We can deliberately destroy thousands of Gazan homes, the Gazan parliament, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Interior, courthouses, the only Gazan flour plant, the main poultry farm, a sewage treatment plant, water wells and God knows what else.
“Deliberately.
“Why? Because we’re better than them. Because we’re a democracy and they’re a bunch of Islamo-fascists. Because ours is a culture of life and theirs is a culture of death. Because they’re out to destroy us and all we are saying is give peace a chance.
“The Goldstones of the world call this hypocrisy, a double standard. How dare they! Around here, we call it moral clarity.”
A person would never read such as this in the New York Times or Washington Post or hear it from any US news source. Unlike Israeli newspapers, the US media is a complete mouthpiece for the Israel Lobby. Never a critical word is heard.
This will be even more the case now that the Israel Lobby, after years of effort, has succeeded in repealing the First Amendment by having the Hate Crime Bill attached to the recently passed military appropriations bill. This is the way the syllogism works: It is anti-semitic to criticize Israel. Anti-semitism is a hate crime. Therefore, to criticize Israel is a hate crime.
As the Jerusalem Post notes, this syllogism has “moral clarity.”
Britain’s ambassador to the United Nations, John Sawers, stepped into the hate crime arena when he told Israel Army radio that the Goldstone report on Israel’s military assault on Gaza contains “some very serious details which need to be investigated.”
A year from now when the Anti-Defamation League has its phalanx of US Department of Justice (sic) prosecutors in place, Sawers would be seized and placed on trial. Diplomatic immunity means nothing to the US, which routinely invades other countries, executes their leaders or sends them to the Hague for trial as war criminals.
In the meantime, however, the Israeli government put Sawers and the UK government on notice that British support for the Goldstone Report would result in the destruction of the double standard that protects the West and Israel and create a precedent that would place the British in the dock for war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“London,” declared the Israeli government, “could find itself in handcuffs if it supports the document [the Goldstone report].”
Once the DOJ’s hate crime unit us up and running, “self-hating Jews,” such as leaders of the Israeli peace movement and Haaretz and Jerusalem Post journalists, can expect to be indicted for anti-semitic hate crimes in US courts.

An American lady with Palestinian descent retorted angrily  to Dr. Mordechai Kedar's claims of superiority over other nations and religions. This article was published by WATA Forums as a post for discussion.
She said:
Since you started these shenanigans of nonsense and absurdity of claiming superiority based on one particular Jew religion, and furthermore since you subjected me along with everyone else on this side of the track to your lunatic rants, then I might as well level with you...Your religion is so great and genetically manifested, then why is it that you are less than one tenth of one percent of world population, despite the fact that this "great religion" of yours being the oldest amongst monolithic religions? You need not bother..we already know the answer!
In the meantime and back to your shenanigans...Its only natural for jews to accumulate all these Noble peace prizes due to the fact that you were scattered throughout the world, and unlike your claims, you were offered every opportunity to educate yourself and excel in every country you existed...what you failed miserably to mention however is that your ilk (jews) turned their back on every single country and group of people that ever gave you a shelter and a lending hand and you grudgingly stabbed them squarely in the back. Case in point; the countries of Russia and Germany..and countless others, not to mention the hapless but generous Arabs who allowed your wretched bunch to tag along in the way back to Arabia after the debacle in Spain, and you were welcomed with open arms throughout the Arab world...In the end and thanks to the deadly disease of Zionism...jews became professional parasites and Judaism is no longer a religion, rather its a profession to blackmail every single Christian nation on earth in the name of the so-called holocaust..
May Allah the merciful forgive me in Ramadan

Many things had been concocted since the coming of the first Zionist settlers. The Chef the sous-chefand assistants all convened to poison Palestine and its inhabitants. Some of the dishes are still simmering, others were overcooked but most of the poisoned food was consumed and contaminated people's minds and hearts. What will the dessert-surprise be?

The worst crime ever...

Day after day we discover the ugly face of Zionists. Today, we understand why IDF are keen on killing systematically Palestinians notwithstanding their age, gender or status. They certainly have a preference: the best buy comes with the vigorous and healthy ones…their organs will certainly sell well. This trafficking is unprecedented.

Palestine is serving like a breeding farm for human organs where human parts are given for the highest bidder. It doesn’t require a high IQ to guess how things are orchestrated. IDF have access to all medical files… They spot in advance their prey then capture, snipe or kidnap them openly. They take any organ they want then throw the rest in the ever-enlarging burial grounds for anonymous cadavers. 

The Swedish journalist has guts; he dared to raise a topic everybody knew about. American police have already arrested Rabbi organ thieves. The Anti-Semite red card has already been raised against the Swedish journalist… A tranquilizer that soothes burning minds and makes the lion-hearted persons chicken. 

Should we stand still and watch Zionists dilapidate this courageous man?

The Holocaust/anti-Semite card. Don't leave home without it!

How to play the Holocaust/anti-Semite card

Say you're a SLC on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean that was founded based on lies, murder, deceit and land theft. And say that your country still practices ingrained habits of murder, lies, theft of investors money, con games, false-flags, terror, corruption, racism and more land theft.

Say that this nation's inhabitants are narcissistic and vain to the nth degree, always needing the world to heap praise and constant admiration on that country, since the Eastern Europe immigrants that migrated to that nation have deluded themselves into thinking the universe revolves around them, after all, a G-d they created says they are the 'Chosen.'

Praise which usually comes thru the MSM, which confederates control and use to shape public opinion. Except....

Except occasionally a bit of harsh truth slips out, like stories about those 'light unto the world' people kidnapping humans and harvesting their organs...

Or stories asking questions why so many of their 'Tribe' members are in control of the world's largest economy thru manipulations of the Federal Reserve, Treasury Dept and Wall Street and what in the hell happened to all that money that Mom and Pop had invested.

And stories that seep thru the Zionist censors about the world's 'most moral' army shooting women and children carrying a white flag.

That's when you whip out your anti-Semite card©, recognized in over 150 countries around the world!

Use it to silence those who dare ask questions of your royal lineage. Or those who don't grovel and get down on bended knee when you tell another whopper! Or to make grown men in the US Senate piss their pants.

And for our elite clients, we now offer the Holocaust™ card which comes pre-approved with 6 million lies.

Zionism is an incurable disease of the mind

In his article, Zaid Nabulsi, the inveterate defender of Palestinian rights is using down-to-earth language to convince those who are skeptical about the veracity of the Palestinian case. 

Aware of the machinations of Zionists and the dirty role their tentacles are playing to intoxicate people’s minds, he uses his talents of a lawyer to discredit Zionists and debunk their arguments one by one. In so doing, he dissipates the haze that Zionists have imposed on people through their media and mercenaries.

I lost my gloves one day in a coffee shop in Geneva, and I tell you, it’s difficult to ride without them when it’s really cold. So as I was paying for a new pair with a credit card, the salesman, whom I knew was from Israel, tried to start some small talk by asking me what my family name means. I told him that it relates to the city of Nablus where my family is originally from. Suddenly, the most bewildered look was plastered on his face. “Where is Nablus?” he asked, “I’ve never heard of it.” Then, after realizing that I knew he was bullshitting me, he pretended to remember, “Ah, Shkheim you mean?”With my insistence not to learn these ugly names that the deranged Zionists have dug up from oblivion to erase our identity, that name certainly didn’t ring a bell. But now it was my turn. Although I knew where he was from, I asked “And you’re… from?” As he smiled while reminding me, I replicated the same look on his face moments ago. “Israel? Where is that?” Then after a brief pause, “Ah, the land of Canaan you mean. Palestine”. You see if you want to get biblical on me, there is no such thing as Israel either, and I made that clear to this smartass. Here we were all of a sudden; my family descended from a place called Shkheim, and this guy a Palestinian. God does work in mysterious ways, but I still thanked Him for His small mercies that at least my name was not Zaid Shkheimy. “Have a nice day”, I told my Israeli friend. It was in fact a very cold, but still magnificently sunny day to hit the roads. The gloves warmed up my grip on the bike, but my heart was still frozen. I just cannot stand thieves who steal your gloves, or any other kind of thieves. It was then that it finally occurred to me. Zionism is a sickness, for it takes much more than just a twisted ideology to make people think like that. It requires a profound leap of immorality of a higher order to instill this mentality in your followers. Zionism is not merely a political movement, but in its essence represents a deeply disturbed view of the world, which is a reflection of a terrible disease of the mind. Indeed, to deny the existence of a vibrant community such as the Palestinian society in the early twentieth century and describe Palestine as “a land without a people for a people without a land” is a disease of the mind. To assert property claims over real estate after the lapse of more than 2000 years with the same certainty of title as if one resided there yesterday is a disease of the mind. To describe the colonial immigration to Palestine of a European people with no proven historical link to the ancient Israelites – and whose great, great recorded ancestors have never set foot there – as some kind of a “return” to that land is indicative of a perverted misunderstanding and misapplication of the verb to “return” and can only be a result of a disease of the mind. To blame the Palestinians for being unreasonable in rejecting a partition plan in 1947 which gave the Jews, who only owned 7 percent of the land, an astonishing half of Palestine, is a disease of the mind. To demand of the Arabs at the time to peacefully succumb to such partition, where 86 percent of the land designated for the proposed Jewish state was Palestinian-inhabited and owned land, is a disease of the mind. To eventually grab 78 percent of Palestine through war and to force the flight of the population through deliberate massacres and then call it a war of independence is a disease of the mind. To deny the orchestrated massacres and eradications of hundreds of Palestinian villages in 1948 and then denounce the Israeli historians who later exposed this truth as self-hating Jews is a disease of the mind. To claim that having escaped the horrors of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, and Dachau is a justification for the murder, expulsion, and occupation of another guiltless people is a disease of the mind. To legislate that any resident of Poland, Hungary, New York, Brazil, Australia, Iceland, or even Planet Mars, who happens to be blessed with a Jewish mother (yet cannot point to Palestine on the map) has a superior right to “return” and settle in Palestine to someone who has been expelled from his very own land, confined to a squalid refugee camp, and still holds the keys to his house, is a disease of the mind. To blame God for the theft and occupation of someone else’s land by claiming that it was He who had pledged this land exclusively to the Jews, and to seriously promote the myth of a land promised by the Almighty to His favorite children as an excuse for this crime, is a disease of the mind. To milk the pockets of the world for the atrocities of the Nazis, while stubbornly refusing a simple admission of guilt, let alone compensation or repatriation, for the catastrophe that befell the Palestinian people is a disease of the mind. To keep reminding and blackmailing the world of the plight of the Jews under Hitler 70 years ago, while at the same time inflicting on the Palestinians today the same fate of the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto, is a disease of the mind. To impose a collective guilt overshadowing Western civilization for the Holocaust and then to criminalize all legitimate historical debate of the nature and extent of that horrific event is a disease of the mind. To virtually incarcerate the Palestinian people inside degrading cages, destroying their livelihoods, confiscating their lands, stealing their water and uprooting their trees, and then to condemn their legitimate resistance as terrorism is a disease of the mind. To believe you have the right to chase the Palestinians into an Arab capital city in 1982 and to indiscriminately bombard its civilians for a relentless three months, murdering thousands of innocent people is a disease of the mind. To encircle the civilian camps of Sabra and Chatila after evacuating the fighters and to unleash on them trained dogs (while providing them with night-illuminating flares for efficiency) and then deny culpability for the carnage is a disease of the mind. To publicly declare a policy of breaking the bones of Palestinian stone-throwers to prevent them from lifting stones again and to enact this policy is a disease of the mind. To have the sadistic streak of exacting vengeance on the innocent families of suicide bombers by punishing them with the dynamiting of their home is a disease of the mind. To describe the offer of giving the Palestinians 80 percent of 22 percent of 100 percent of what is originally their own land as a “generous” offer is a disease of the mind. To believe that you have the right to continue to humiliate the Palestinians at gun point by making them queue for hours to move between their villages, forcing mothers to give birth at check-points is a disease of the mind. To flatten the camp of Jenin on its inhabitants and deny any wrongdoing is a delusional condition which is symptomatic of a serious disease of the mind. To build a huge separation wall under the pretext of security, which disconnects farmers from their farms and children from their schools, while stealing even more territory as the wall freely zigzags and encroaches on Palestinian land is a disease of the mind. To leave behind, in the last 10 days of a losing war in Lebanon, more than one million cluster bombs which have no purpose except to murder and maim unsuspecting civilians is a product of an evil disease of the mind. To believe that the entire world is out to get you and to denounce any critic of the racist policies of the State of Israel as an anti-Semite, the latest victim being none other than peace-making Jimmy Carter, is an acute stage of mass paranoia, which is a disease of the mind. To possess, in the midst of a non-nuclear Arab world, more than 200 nuclear warheads capable of incinerating the whole planet in addition to having the most advanced arsenal of weaponry in the world while continuing to play the role of a victim is a disease of the mind. Yes, and for that salesman in peaceful Geneva to be so insecure as to refuse to acknowledge the name of the largest West Bank city under his country’s brutal military occupation is, sadly, nothing but an infectious disease of the mind. That’s all what it is, ladies and gentlemen: Zionism is an incurable disease of the mind. Take care, and if you ride, do it safely. Zaid Nabulsi is a lawyer. He spent many years working for the United Nations in Geneva. He has a passion for (glorious) Harley Davidson bikes. This article was originally published in Jordan’s Living Well magazine

Intellectual Terrorism

This article was published by Yamin Zakaria, Axis of Logic 

London, Mar 8, 2006
It explains how it is easy today to demonise others thorough massmedia. 
The essence of intellectual terrorism is to: demonise the enemy, and concurrently silence them, usually it is a precursor to genocide or mass murder e.g. the Nazi’s in Germany . Dehumanising the enemy makes it easier to commit such acts, as one can wash the blood stained hands with previously issued excuses, but not the stains from a guilty mind. Apart from hurling abuse, intellectual terrorists also hide behind promoting ideals like, peace, human rights, freedom etc. In the name of peace they initiate war; they lecture about human rights while engaged in inhuman tortures; they crave for freedom by taking the freedom of others, by bombing them to incineration. Democracies project intellectual terrorism as an exercise of free speech; many of the fanatical liberals go further to claim it as a prerequisite of free speech. Therefore, the crux of their argument is: if you cannot terrorise ethnic communities like the Muslims, then you are not free; and you are unable to exercise free speech! So Muslims, please line up to endure further abuse, because the Western Liberals and their journalists need to do this like a drug addict needs a fix, in order to maintain their conviction that they are free souls capable of exercising free speech. After all, what could be more important than the freedom of these pen-pushers? It goes further, Western democracies not only demonise and gag the Muslims simultaneously in the name of free speech, but they even claim to do it on their behalf. That is like telling the inmates at Camp-X-Ray that their incarceration is in fact a gift from the benevolent US to educate them about human rights! As Bush said and demonstrated in Iraq, dead or alive it does not matter; they waved the victory flag of 'freedom’ over the dead carcasses of people who have permanently lost their freedom. But never mind, it was for their benefit! Now imagine, while hurling abuse at a particular community, the mouth of all the individuals are sealed with masking tape, then the community is lectured about the sacred value of 'free’ speech; this is the reality of free speech espoused by the Western Liberals and secularists, as they are led by their noses, like prize bulls, by their neo-con rulers. Accordingly, from Salman Rushdie to the recent Danish cartoon episode, again is made the point that Muslims are expected to endure their demonisation, under the umbrella of free speech, but they are not at liberty to respond according to their interpretation of free speech. A vivid example of this double standard was the freedom of speech given to the racist Nick Griffin, leader of the right wing British National Party (BNP), but not for the opinions expressed by Sheikh Abu Hamza. Can anyone doubt the mirror held up to show their own hypocrisy, as the timing of the two trials coincided, and it became blatantly obvious they were sitting on a pile of smelly dung called "free speech," which produced such a positive verdict for the BNP leader and a 7 year sentence for the Sheikh? By free speech for Muslims, I do not mean just the right to issue fatwas (Islamic edicts) but the right to subject other communities to similar types and levels of abuse as the Muslims have been subjected to under freedom of expression. For example, would the Muslims be allowed to express anti-Jewish statements, including satirical cartoons of holocaust? Clearly not, even non-Muslims like David Irving and the London Mayor, Ken Livingston, found out recently. They were crucified for merely holding or expressing an opinion (not insult or profanity); this was supported by these same shameless-liberals and secularists who are lecturing the Muslims about free speech. At present intellectual terrorism is almost exclusively applied to Islam and Muslims. Certainly, there are equal opportunities for those who wish to demonise the Muslims. Anyone can write the next book, or find new ways to hurl insults at Islam and Muslims. The Chairman of CRE (Commission of Racial Equality) in the UK, Trevor Phillips is an ideal position to demonstrate that equal opportunity. So he did numerous times, and recently once again he criticised Muslims for aspiring to live by Islamic laws instead of accepting the status-quo. No question of free speech or freedom of expression for the Muslims, because they are always the subject of free speech and not allowed to exercise it. According to Trevor Phillips, those Muslims having such aspiration should leave the country. This sort of superficial argument is usually advocated by the racists, or those who are unable to intellectually argue their case against the Muslims. Would Trevor Phillips advocate similar proposition to those who advocate a Marxist style of government? Clearly not, in any case where would he ask them to leave to, as most of them are native British subjects. Now, I wonder why Trevor Phillips is beginning to sound like the racist Nick Griffin or the typical tabloid journalist. It is easy to taunt the Muslims to leave the UK as majority of them are immigrants; by advocating such types of argument, Trevor Phillips has fallen into the same trap of racism, which he is allegedly combating! Intellectual terrorism is also used to turn the victim into the perpetrator. For example, Salman Rushdie [1] and most of the Western Liberals view the protests from the Muslims over the Danish cartoon as a manifestation of Islamic "totalitarianism". Did the Muslims suddenly decided to proactively demonstrate or did they RESPOND to reject secular totalitarianism in the guise of cheap insults? The logic behind blaming the Muslims instead of the cartoonists is like saying; - unless I can punch you in the face, I do not have the freedom and you should not restrict my freedom to punch your face and not react. This implies that we as Muslims should accept to be punched otherwise we are restricting the freedom of the cartoonists, and imposing our values on them. I suppose a serial killer could also make the same accusations against those who oppose his activity! Rushdie advocates the need to resist religious totalitarianism but would he use that principle to fight the Hindu extremists in India or the militant Jews in Israel and the US. Fat chance! We know it does not take any courage or conviction to go with current fad of Muslim bashing in the West, for personal gains. Attacking the Muslims or any group that has been made voiceless is very easy. Like attacking a country after it has been stripped of all its weapons (nudge, nudge, wink, wink Bush and Blair). In reality, the so-called fight against religious totalitarianism is nothing more than a fig leaf to impose secular totalitarianism upon the Muslims. Such behaviour is the real form of extremism and not the accusation levelled against the Muslims for reacting to insult and injury. The true extremism enveloped in hypocrisy being that which repeatedly attacks and insults and expects a passive reception from a docile and subservient victim. Even today, Americans feel that they were morally right to drop two Atom-bombs and not one, killing 200,000 (+) defenceless civilians; against an enemy that had no weapons left to fight with, just like the Iraqi army. This is just one episode in history from a lengthy list. This shows that intellectual terrorists have succeeded to nullify the guilty conscience of its masses. When it is difficult to suppress or nullify the guilt, it is used as a political football. For example, the West is using their holocaust guilt to get the Palestinians to pay for their - the West's - crimes. These same hypocrites have just signed a nuclear deal with India which is outside the NPT (no safeguards), more than 20 years after it "illegally" developed and detonated Nuclear weapons and 7 years after it again "illegally" tested and detonated more Nuclear weapons it definitely has developed; whilst it seeks to strangle, demonise and attack Iran for a nuclear program that has produced NO weapons and is inside the NPT. They are terrorising Iran whilst rewarding India because these are hypocrites, villains and Islam haters of the worst kind. They are however consistent, as they continue to attack and weaken the Muslims, whilst strengthening and arming the enemies of Islam. The intellectual terrorists are telling the wider Arab/Islamic world that you are free to choose whatever system you like, as long as it is a democracy, and then only if the winning party is not an Islamic party and that must be approved by them. You can exercise free speech as long you use it to abuse Islam and the Muslims and respect the Jews. Similarly, the Western Liberals continue to scream at Muslims to abide by free speech, while they hide under the umbrella of anti-Semitism, refusing to comply with the notion of free speech. Free means free like an apple means apple. Curtailing it in any way means it ceases to be free but they appear dim witted on this point. Those intellectual terrorists who demonise others using free speech are the ones trying to limit free speech, because they are unable to cope, when they are on the receiving end of someone else’s free speech.

Rejection of Your Explanation & Call on Immediate Response to our Demands 

 

Dear Webster,

We, the members of the World Arab Translators'  Association, would like to express our rejection of the explanation you give in response to our letter of protest and consider it as no more than mere equivocation to exonerate your company and your staff from the charge of libel and defamation against the Arab people.  

 

We think you know as well as everybody else, that the word Arab "Upper case" or arab "lower case" refers to a member of the Arab nation of Arabian descent, as is the case with American, upper case or lower case. This distinction seems to exist only on the pages of your dictionaries.  You claim that "the job of the dictionary is to provide an unbiased and accurate report on the ways we use words today".  In fact, we want to make it clear to you that we checked the meaning of the word Arab in a number of dictionaries, but  we did not come across any of the derogatory meanings you offer in your dictionary.  Is that what you mean by "unbiased and accurate report" on the word?

 

The timid acquiescence you make in your reply that in the 4th New International edition of the dictionary the discrepancy about anti-Semitism will be eliminated IS INADEQUATE . Moreover, your confession that your Collegiate Thesaurus is in need of revision and your allusion to the fact that in the new edition the derogative senses of the word arab will not be included IS NOT ENOUGH 

 

The shy apology at the end of your letter for any unintended offence caused by these entries is not acceptable also.  We call on you to take  prompt and definitive action that reflects your claimed unbiased attitude.

 

Henceforward, we call on the Webster company to:  

1- Publicly repudiate these synonyms. 

2- Apologize to the Arab people for this unjustified provocation of hatred and hostility. 

3- Withdraw all copies that carry these offences from the market. 

4-  Send errata sheets to libraries, schools, academic institutions, etc. 

5- Send a letter of apology to WATA and publish a copy of it on the   company's own website.  

 

Our campaign against Webster Company and its publications in the Arab World will not cool down and will fervently continue until our demands, stated above, are met.  It will grow larger and stronger and will include all the Arab people.  It will also seek to reach the International Anti-Discriminations Committees and Civil Rights Organizations all over the world.  We will call on them to take action against the flagrant racist policy you adopt against the Arab nation. 

 

We strongly advise that you do not turn a deaf ear but respond to our demands. 

 

WATA
