Countering Israel Apartheid Week folly
In 1948, the
Arab League of Nations applied the Apartheid model to Palestine, and declared
that Jews must be denied rights as citizens of Israel, while declaring a total
state of war to eradicate the new Jewish entity, a war that continues today.
In 1948, at the
directive of the Arab League of Nations, Jordan devastated the vestiges of
Jewish life from Judea and Samaria, and burned all
synagogues in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem.
In 1948, member
states of the Arab League of Nations began to strip the human rights of Jews
and to expel entire Jewish communities who had resided in their midst for
centuries. And since its inception in 1994, the newly constituted Palestinian
Authority, created by the PLO, has prepared the rudiments of a Palestinian
State, modelled on the rules of Apartheid and institutionalized discrimination:
1. The right of
Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendents to return to Arab villages lost
in 1948 will be protected by the new Palestinian state. (Jewish refugees are not allowed to return to Gaza and other Arab
2. While 20% of
Israel’s citizens are Arabs, not one Jew will be allowed to live in proposed
3. Anyone who
sells land to a Jew will be liable to the death penalty in the Palestinian
State. (This law is already enforced by the PA)
4. Those who
murder Jews are honored on all official Palestinian media outlets (and by ruling officials, like Abbas).
5. PA maps
prepared for the Palestinian State depict all of Palestine (including Israel) under Palestinian rule.
6. PA maps of
Jerusalem for the Palestinian State once again delete the Jewish Quarter of
7. Recent PA
documents claim all of Jerusalem for the future Palestinian State.
8. The right of
Jewish access to Jewish holy places is to be denied in the new Palestinian
9. The Draft
Palestinian State Constitution denies juridical status to any religion except
for Islam. (In the West Bank under Jordan, since
1948 till 1967, the practice of Judaism and Christianity was ‘only’ restricted)
10. No system
which protects human rights or civil liberties will exist in a Palestinian
State. (Since the Oslo Accord was signed, the PA has
shown its complete disregard for the human rights of individuals, political
groups and religious minorities)
If that is not a
formula for a totalitarian apartheid state of Palestine, then what is?
Have You Heard about it?
Violent clashes between Muslims and Christians near Nigeria's city of Jos left
more than 200 dead in a nearby village.
Food for Thought. by
Not long ago,
the United Kingdom vigorously and murderously fought against the independence
of Ireland; the United States occupied and annexed the South East of north
America and later Hawaii. But Jews are not allowed to end Arab occupation and
take control over Jewish ancestral land!
Useless Talks Approved by the Arab
Arab League has approved "indirect negotiations" between the PA and
Israel. The League limited the talks to a preliminary four-month period.
The US will broker and make sure the indirectness of the talks. Up until now,
Abbas has refused any discussion with the Jewish state. (Why
must the talks between two parties be approved by political masters who created
the conflict in the first place? It is in their interest to maintain the status
quo. "Indirect negotiation" is the display of disrespect by Arabs
toward Israel. Must we negotiate with bigots?)
Another Embarrassment for Obama
Administration. Syrian President Bashar Assad sat down with Ahmadinejad and
Nasrallah for dinner in Damascus last Thursday night, just one day after United
States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Syria to distance itself
from Iran. The trio of terror-hungry Muslim leaders denounced Israel and
America and discussed ways to aid ‘resistance groups’. (No
hard feelings - it is just another humiliation the US has received from a
Peaceful Nuclear Program? Ayatollah
Yazdi, spiritual teacher of Iran’s dictator Mahmoud Ahmedinajad, says the
acquisition of nuclear weapons is a religious obligation. Just ten days ago, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said
the opposite: “Our religious beliefs are against the use of [nuclear] weapons.
We in no way believe in an atomic weapon and do not seek one." (They are inventing ‘religious’
justifications to disguise their murderous agenda!)
Quote of the
Week: “…in Egypt more than 17 TV channels
every day promoting the Wahabi ideas, and this way of understanding the
religion is very exclusive in the sense that they are against anybody who is
different. They are against Shia, people of Iran. They are against even Muslims
who are for democracy, like myself, accusing me of being secular, against the
religion. They are against Jews, of course. They are against Christians (especially
Egypt’s Coptics). They are against everybody
who is not with them.” - Muslim author and democracy activist Alaa Al Aswany
- He also said that beginning in the 1970s
there has been a steady rise in the Wahabi brand of religious interpretation of
Islam, imported and financed from Saudi Arabia. This is what Saudi Arabia has
been doing all over the Islamic world with the silent blessing of its best
friend, the United States!
Should Protest Against any Construction in Manhattan. The
United States criticized Israel for authorizing the construction of 600 more
housing units in the north Jerusalem neighbourhood of Pisgat Ze'ev: “We've
relayed our strong concerns to the government of Israel, that this kind of
activity” (After all, most land of the United States was forcibly
taken from native Indian tribes – in contrast, Israel is building the Jewish
state on the land of our ancestors!)
Fatah is Increasing Terrorist Activity. The
Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terror group belonging to the Fatah, which in turn is a
member of the PLO which controls the PA, claimed responsibility for the drive
by shooting on Highway 443 last week. (The terrorist organization Fatah has
never renounced terror against Israel, but lately it has increased the number
of direct terrorism acts in order to compete with Hamas!)
No International Condemnation of Israeli
Government? For the third time in a month, Israel’s
security forces have destroyed a synagogue in the Samaria town of Nachliel.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Labor, has sent forces in the middle of the night
to destroy a shack used as a synagogue (What would have happened if it was a
Mosque or Church?)
Israel Gave them Voice, they Propagate
Terror. Israel’s public Arabic-language television
channel has become a mouthpiece for Muslim and anti-Israel propaganda. The
station’s promotion of pro-Palestinian content is effected largely by Arab
residents of eastern Jerusalem who are not Israelis and who occupy influential
positions in the Arabic station. (It is just another example of the
stupidity of ‘political correctness’. Shouldn’t the Israeli government have
full control of its own propaganda apparatus?)
Another UN Joke. The
Iranian Islamic regime is expected to seek a seat on the United Nations' Human
Rights Council. The 47-nation body is scheduled to hold elections in May.
Hypocrisy of the Headlines.
French FM wants international recognition of Palestinian
state before borders are negotiated – Another traditional ‘friend’ of Israel. Israel must
recognise the Basque state even before France and Spain agree to acknowledge
the legitimate claim of the Basque people for independence! So-called Palestinians do not have this legitimacy, but
their fake claim is supported by anti-Semitic international bigots anyway.
Truth is Hard to Swallow.
Turkey is recalling its U.S. ambassador, after the committee on Foreign
Relations of the House of Representatives approved a resolution by narrow
majority to call Turkey's massacre of Armenians during WWI
"genocide". (The genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians by
Turks opened the flood gates for the Holocaust and other inhumanities of the 20th
century. Why did it take the leading world democracy almost 100 years to
acknowledge the truth?)
the US Genocidal Foreign Policy.
A similar resolution was
approved by the same committee two years ago, but did not go forward to the
House after pressure from the George W Bush administration.
Election: Barack Obama: "If elected President, I will recognize
the Armenian Genocide." Hillary Clinton: "I have been a longstanding
supporter of the Armenian Genocide Resolution."
the resolution: Mrs Clinton - who had urged the House Foreign Affairs
Committee not to hold the vote - "We are against this decision. Now we
believe that the US Congress will not take any decision on this subject." (The busters lie without any shame!)
Australia with NO Respect. Australian
Federal Police (AFP) agents in Israel investigating the Dubai assassination
allegedly hit-and-ran a female Israeli bicycle-rider. (They came to
‘investigate’ the alleged involvement of Israel in the assassination of an
Islamic terrorist with no respect for the people and laws of Israel!)

Critics of Israel love to mention UN
resolutions, but they do not like it when people in fact read them. Quite often
interpretation of the UN resolutions has nothing in common with the actual
Resolution 181 (II). Future Government of
Palestine, adopted on 29 November 1947, address the issue of citizenship of the
future population of Palestine.
Chapter 3 - Citizenship, international
conventions and financial obligations
"Citizenship: Palestinian citizens
residing in Palestine outside the City of Jerusalem, upon the recognition of
independence, become citizens of the State in which they are resident and enjoy
full civil and political rights."
At the time of declaration of Israeli
independence most Arabs were not residents of Israel, but the proposed Arab
state. Therefore, they should be citizens of an Arab state. It is not Israel's
fault that Arabs rejected the UN partition plan.
"Persons over the age of eighteen
years may opt, within one year from the date of recognition of independence of
the State in which they reside, for citizenship of the other State, providing
that no Arab residing in the area of the proposed Arab State shall have the right
to opt for citizenship in the proposed Jewish State…"
The UN resolution allowed Jews to live
outside the official border of the Jewish state. I would like to ask if Arabs
are allowed to live in Israel, why Jews must leave territories, regardless of
the outcome of future negotiations? Therefore, I would suggest that transfer of
Jews from the territories contradicts UN Resolution 181, as well as recent UN
resolutions related to population transfer.
The issue of Jews living in the West Bank
and Gaza is used as another propaganda decoy tactic. Most forgotten by now 'big
and important issues' like: construction of by-pass roads, Sharon's visit to
the Temple Mount etc. They all have one purpose - to hide the Arabs' intention,
probably not only Arabs, to destroy Israel!
