“International anti-Semites” is a Name for Bigots
by Steven Shamrak
Sometimes I am criticised for using the description “International
anti-Semites” too often. I do substitute it by the words “bigots” or “idiots”
from time to time. I shall continue to call things by their true names.
Regardless of the terminology, there are many facts pertaining to unfair,
genocidal and prejudicial treatment of Jews even during recent history that support my use of the term “International anti-Semites”:
1. In July 1922, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with the Palestine
Mandate, recognising "the historical connection of the
Jewish people with Palestine". Great Britain was called upon to facilitate the
establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine - Eretz Israel (Land of Israel). Three months later, in order to obtain full control over the Suez
Britain made a deal with the Hashemite Kingdom,
Trans-Jordan (77% of the Mandate) was given to the king's brother in exchange
for the Sinai, which was given to Egypt.
(5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled Syrian
Before WWII, knowing the genocidal intention of Nazi Germany toward Jews, “International
anti-Semites” signed an agreement restricting Jewish immigration from Europe.
were facilitators of the Holocaust, but they would not have been successful if
not for the participation of local Poles, French, Lithuanians, Ukrainians and
others. In Denmark,
and even fascist Italy,
where the local population and governments did not co-operate with Nazi
occupiers, many Jews survived!
Nazis were facilitators of the Holocaust, but they would not be successful if
not for enthusiastic and joyful participation from local Polacks, French,
Litanies, Ukrainians and others. In Denmark,
and even fascist Italy,
where local population and governments did not co-operate with Nazi occupiers,
many Jews survived.
5. On 29 Nov,
1947 the UN General Assembly adopted resolution 181, which
divided the remaining 18% of the Jewish Land to six unmanageable triangles with Jerusalem to be controlled by a
"special international regime", inviting Arabs to attack and finish
what Nazi Europe started!
When fully armed armies of seven Arab/Muslim states attacked the newly created,
disarmed Jewish state the “International anti-Semites” imposed an arms embargo on the region to
prevent Jews from defending their right to exist as a sovereign nation.
7. Since the creation of
the UN, over 50% of its resolutions have been related and mainly critical of Israel. Recent appointment of
the PA as a non-member state to the UN has opened the door to additional
anti-Israel bigotry by the “International anti-Semites” involving ICC.
I have been publishing my
editorial letter for over eleven years. Contrary to some opinions, I am not a
right-winger or extremist. I base my conclusions on facts be
they religious and long-forgotten or recent historical ones. The Zionist dream
of Jewish people has nothing to do with right or left of the politics. It is
the essential right of the people to freedom of living on their ancestral land,
as most nations do!
The facts remain
unchanged. The unhealthy international
preoccupation with Jews must be exposed and vigorously confronted!
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
stopped firing rockets at Israel
there has been no Israeli attacks against Gaza - so
much for ‘Israeli aggression’! International media and so-called human rights
organisations have conveniently forgotten the accusations they made against Israel. The
same anti-Semitic bigots have been conspicuously quiet about atrocities and the
human rights violations committed by Muslims around the world - in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt, Libya and Mali.
Obviously, they are keeping the powder dry for the next anti-Israel assault!
Obama has Shown Again his
President Barack Obama took nearly a
week to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for narrowly
winning the election. Martin Indyk told Army Radio that Netanyahu should reach out to Obama to
help repair relations between the two. “President Obama is feeling quite
frustrated because he rightly feels that he has done the right thing by Israel,
but Israel is not responsive,” Indyk said. (Common
courtesy does not apply to Israel! The US has never fully supported the right
of Israel to exist within all Jewish land. During the War of independence, US
actively participated in the arms embargo when disarmed Jews were facing genocide
from the armies of seven Arabs states!)
Egypt, Syria are Falling Apart
Israeli Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel warned that Syria is falling apart and no one knows
what the next day may bring. If Hezbollah seize chemical weapons stores, Israel will have to decide on the spot
whether to attack Syria or Lebanon. In Cairo, Egypt's army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, warned: “The state is on the brink of collapse.”
Some 60 people have been killed in protests in Egyptian towns against the Muslim
Brotherhood and President Mohamed Morsi.
Anti-Semitic Bigots will Never
Israel has strongly criticised Argentina for its decision to work with Iran to investigate a 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural
centre in Buenos
Argentine prosecutors say the attack was planned and financed by Iran, and carried out by the Lebanese Shia Islamist
movement, Hezbollah - 85 people were killed.
Snubbed UN Human Rights Kangaroo
Israel became the first nation
to skip a UN review of its human rights record without giving a reason - and
then won a precedent-setting deferral. US diplomats have said the council is
too focused on Israel. Israel, meanwhile, said last year that it would stop
cooperating with the council. Israel has gone through one
review before in 2008, when many delegations demanded it recognise and respect
Palestinians' right to self-determination and a homeland. (But the court and international anti-Semites do not
respect Israel and the right of the Jewish state’s existence!)
Too Many Fake Apologies and ‘Misunderstandings’
Morsi defends comments from a 2010 video in which
he called Jews "descendants of apes, pigs"; saying he's not against
the Jewish faith. On the same day a senior adviser to the Egyptian president, Fathi Shihab-Eddim,
claimed the Holocaust was a hoax invented by American intelligence, and that
the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis merely moved to the US.
Advanced Weaponry for Hezbollah
Three weeks ago the Israeli navy,
allegedly, intercepted a ship containing advanced weaponry destined for Lebanon. The ship was
registered to a Qatari company and contained advanced weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles. Last week, Israeli fighter
jets bombed targets in Syria and Lebanon that included
caches of weapons and senior members of the Iranian Quds Force. France Press
quoted security sources saying that the Israeli air force bombed a weapons convoy just as it was crossing
from Syria into Lebanon. Although, the Syrian government stated that the Israel had struck a Jamaraya
institute near Damascus, which developed Syrian unconventional arms.

“…journalists must be public trustees
with the full measure of responsibility to the public. That accuracy and
fairness are fundamental to good journalism. A single standard of truth must
prevail for all.” - Walter Williams, founder of the Missouri School of Journalism - This was written over hundred years ago! How many
international journalists do we know that live by this code of public service?
Definitely not the media rejects who cover the Arab-Israel conflict!
US Helps Arabs to Occupy Jerusalem!

with Israel, the US has been aiding Palestinian

By aiding PA construction of
infrastructure in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, the US has effectively been helping
the PA create facts on the ground that could push disputed neighbourhoods
towards becoming part of a Palestinian state, including areas where the land in
question is wholly owned by Jews.
While the Obama administration has been demanding
a complete halt to all Jewish construction in the West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem, the US Agency for
International Development, or USAID, has been financing PA infrastructure
projects in those same territories. Some of the projects include the
construction of PA municipal buildings as well as roads and other
Case and point are multiple towns in the West Bank in what is known as Area C -
neighbourhoods controlled by Israel. Last month the State
Department inaugurated a USAID-funded Palestinian school in Beit
Ijza, a West Bank neighbourhood about five
miles northwest of Jerusalem. The US has also been aiding multiple
areas with the construction of roads and municipal facilities.
Some of the US-funded construction has
been carried out by a company owned by the son of PA President Mahmoud Abbas.
While the US assistance to the PA has been
stepped up in recent months, USAID has been helping the Palestinians develop
sections of Jerusalem for several years now, including on
property owned by Jews…
