THIS is what EVERYONE should watch!

I have been going on and on about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict because nothing will ever get done in this region especially regards fighting extremism and spreading democracy until it is resolved. King Abdullah of Jordon has articulated this in a much better and concise way on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Everyone should watch this and if you’ve seen it watch it again and read the comments on the website.  For readers outside the region, let me tell you this is the truth. Please help stop the Israeli settlements so the peace process can move forward.

P.S. If there ever was a person who should be the “ruler of the free world” it should be Jon Stewart. If I were in the US,  I would not have missed his Rally to Restore Sanity for anything.

How to make the case for Israel and win

This is so brilliant and right on that I could not just post a link. I had to copy the whole thing and post it. It was written by Gabriel Ash on the blog Jews Sans Frontieres and you can access the original post at this link.
To the benefit of the many not-very-bright zionist wannabe apologists who read this blog assiduously, I decided to offer a clear and simple method of arguing the case for Israel. This clear and simple method has been distilled from a life spent listening to and reading Zionist propaganda. It is easy to follow and results are guaranteed or your money back.

So don’t hesitate! Take advantage NOW of this revolutionary rhetorical system that will make YOU a great apologist for Israel in less time than it takes to shoot a Palestinian toddler in the eye.

Ready? 1..2..3..GO!

You need to understand just one principle:
The case for Israel is made of four propositions that should always be presented in the correct escalating order.

1- We rock

2- They suck

3- You suck

4- Everything sucks
That’s it. Now you know everything that it took me a lifetime to learn. The rest is details; filling in the dotted lines.

You begin by saying how great Israel is. Israel want peace; Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East; the desert blooms; kibutz; Israelis invented antibiotics, the wheel, the E minor scale; thanks to the occupation Palestinians no longer live in caves; Israel liberates Arab women; Israel has the most moral army in the world, etc.

This will win over 50% of your listeners immediately. Don’t worry about the factual content. This is about brand identity, not writing a PhD. Do you really think BP is ‘beyond petroleum’?

Then you go into the second point: They suck. Here you talk about the legal system of Saudi Arabia, gay rights in Iran, slave trade in the Sudan, Mohammad Atta, the burqa, Palestinians dancing after 9/11, Arafat’s facial hair, etc.

There is only one additional principle you need to understand here. It will separate you from the amateurs. You need to know your audience. If you’ve got a crowd already disposed to racist logic, go for it with everything you have. But if you get a liberal crowd, you need to sugar coat the racism a bit. Focus on women rights, human rights, religious tolerance, “clash of civilizations”, terrorism, they teach their children to hate, etc. Deep down your audience WANTS to enjoy racism and feel superior. They just need the proper encouragement so they can keep their sophisticated self-image. Give them what they crave and they’ll adore you! But be careful not to ‘mix n match,’ because it will cost you credibility.

When you’re done, there will always be dead-enders insisting that abuse of gays in Iran does not justify ethnic cleansing in Palestine. Take a deep breath, and pull the doomsday weapon: You suck!

You’re a Jew-hater, Arab-lover, anti-Semite, you’re a pinko, a commie, a dreamer, a naive, a self-hater, you have issues, your mother worked for the Nazis, Prince Bandar buys you cookies, you forgot you were responsible for the holocaust, etc. The more the merrier. By the time you end this barrage, only a handful would be left standing. For mopping them up, you use the ultimate postmodern wisdom: Everything sucks.

War, genocide, racism, oppression are everywhere. From the Roma in Italy to the Native-Americans in the U.S., the weak are victimized. Why pick on Israel? It’s the way of the world. Look! Right is only in question between equals in power; the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must. Ethics, schmethics. Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Eat, drink! Carpe diem! The Palestinians would throw us into the sea if they could. Ha ha!

Trust me, that’s as far as words can go. If you followed this method faithfully, you’ve done your work. You should leave the few who are still unconvinced to the forces of order.

You are now ready to
apologize for Israel like a pro.

Tell it like it is.

Two articles that I’ve come across are an excellent read if you are interested in Saudi Arabia. The first was written by Wajeha Al Huwaider on the abuse of Saudi women rights and the second is on the CNN website about what motivates Muslim terrorists. Finally journalists are starting to get it right about the recruitment of youth into “the holy war against infidels”. I wish though that they had put more emphasis on the Palestinian/Israel conflict. What makes youth turn against the outside world rather than facing their own governments and life conditions are the great injustices by Israel against Palestinians. They can’t demand such luxuries as democracy and government accountability when Palestinians are raped of their land and basic human rights. The latter is just a greater cause.

Once Palestinians are happy with their own country, these recruitments will go extremely down. And our youth will be able to look inward for a cause within their own borders.

Did you know…

That Israelis often accuse North Americans of being hypocrites when any American even thinks about condemning what they are doing to the Palestinians. Their argument is that Americans killed off the Red Indians ( Native Americans) and took their territories and so they can’t complain about Israeli conduct.

Saudi Arabia and the USA are in indirect warfare as long as there is warfare between Israel and Palestine. If the Americans consider themselves “friends” of Israel, then we are Palestine’s brothers.

That Israel has an ongoing campaign to get Jews from all over the world and especially the States to immigrate just so they can artificially change the demographics of the land; killing Palestinians and replacing them with Zionists.

That Arab Jews and Christians have coexisted peacefully with Muslims for centuries before Zionism.

Check these facts for yourself.

Palestinian Poet reunited with her Israeli-imprisoned daughter during a TV interview

This video shows a Palestinian poet who had given up her daughter for dead after the daughter was captured by the Israeli forces. The poet while being interviewed is asked to unsuspectingly watch a video of her daughter arrive at the UAE airport and then they had the daughter walk into the studio. The poet goes hysterical with happiness and surprise. It doesn’t really need any translation because most of it is unintelligible screaming. Imagine believing a loved one is dead and then seeing them. Very emotional.

The Biggest Irony

Jews in New York condemning Israel

Jews in New York condemning Israel


This is the biggest irony in the history of Humanity. The west calls Arabs terrorists and all the real terror started when western countries supported a bunch of radical Zionist in creating a Jewish state out of thin air. The west did this because they felt they owed the Jews after they had gone through the Holocaust. And because they were racist; it was a peaceful way for them to get Jews out of their countries. Financial support and weapons was all they could afford to give. No room for the Jews in Europe or America. Let’s send them as far off as possible.

Then the Zionists alleged the land was theirs in 70 A.D. And we KNOW the land is Palestinian right up until they took it in 1948. Zionist also considered Columbia and Uganda for their new state but decided on Palestine because of its religious sites. They stole, tricked and terrorized people off the land. They called to Jews from all over the world to immigrate and take up homes that belonged to Palestinian families for centuries. They lied and said that it was a desert and there were no people. How can that be? And all these families, millions of men, women and children in refugee camps with nowhere to go, where did they come from? Are they all actors?  Another argument that Zionists use is that Arabs already have enough land and countries. So why not ask Polish people to move out into Germany because Europeans have enough land? And anyone who doubts Israel, regardless of nationality, is labelled an anti-semite. The term semite includes both Arabs and Jews. So if you support Palestinians and their cause, you cannot be an anti-semite because Palestinians are Arabs. If Israel truly does wants peace and stability then it must find itself a new homeland. This one is already taken.

If this were a Hollywood movie, Hamas and its leaders would be the heroic no bullshit freedom fighters who die for a true cause. Sadly this is reality and reality has no integrity and no justice.

From Arab News newspaper:

Aiding and abetting a holocaust

Tariq Al-Maeena |

A reader last week objected to my reference of a “holocaust” in this latest atrocity being perpetrated by the Israelis against civilians in Gaza, and specifically targeting children. May I remind the reader and other skeptics that this word is no longer exclusive to crimes of the past?

Cambridge Dictionary defines holocaust as “a very large amount of destruction, especially by fire or heat, or the killing of very large numbers of people” – a situation that is currently in full force against Palestinians in Gaza.

Palestinians are being killed like insects not because of Hamas or because of Qassam rockets or hand-thrown rocks. Palestinians burn and bleed because they are the non-Jewish natives of that land. There is no other reason. Click here to read more.

Palestine/Israel Background

Yesterday on CNN the Israeli ambassador to the US tried to lump all Muslims together with a common purpose of terrorizing humanity. He said that we (as in everyone else but Muslims) in Gaza are fighting a war against terrorism just like the hotel bombings in Mumbai. For the record, there is as much in common with a Pakistani Muslim and an Arab Muslim as there is in common between an Italian Catholic and an American Protestant. In general they have the same religion but both pairs don’t speak the same language and definitely don’t come from the same historical and political background. But I guess the ambassador at least acknowledges that the ignorant west has made some progress since he didn’t say we are all against the orientals.

What does Intifada mean? The news networks use these terms and non-Arabic speakers assume they mean kill all Jews or Bomb everyone for the hell of it when it really means shake off as in shaking off the occupation of Palestine by Israel. I remember reading a comment once written by an American Christian woman where she was showing her support for Israel and she wrote that she’s read about Muslims and how lying is part of our religion and we call that hudna. What?! I’m a born and bred Muslim and the only thing that I’ve been taught about lying is that it is haram (prohibited) and children are always told that if you lie you go to hell. And hudna means truce, so where’s the link?

An average American’s experience of so called Islamic terrorism is 9/11 and 15 of the 19 involved were Saudis. The way it is depicted in the media is that those Saudis just out of the blue grew pure hatred towards the US and decided that they would sacrifice their lives (many of which were promising) to succumb to that hatred. Yes I know Americans are infamous for their arrogance and self-centeredness but come on we don’t care that much about them. What pushed those Saudis to do such a thing is the USA’s unwavering commitment and support for Israel. A commitment that has supplied Israel with billions of dollars worth of army supplies to conduct an ethnic cleansing of Palestine. And Palestine matters to Saudi in the same way that Texas matters to Kansas. Just a little more than a century ago we were one country under Ottoman rule.

To learn more you can watch this video. The whole thing is essential in understanding the Middle-East crisis but if you don’t have to time then start watching from minute 51:20 to learn about the USA’s role in the crisis.
