Defunding Israel but Blind to Islamophobia Ripoffs?
Martin Luther King, Jr. had it correct when during a lecture, in response to anti-Zionist blather, he pointedly stated "Don't talk like that! When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You're talking 'anti-Semitism!"
Below is an interesting and accurate essay from Dr. Farhat-Holzman, a long-ago refugee from Iran's ayatollahs, who had the nasty habit of hanging Western educated women from lamp-posts. She expresses her alarm and astonishment at those promoting Jew-hatred under the mask of the BDS (Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions) movement, attempting to strangle Israel down under the Islamic boot-heel. And I share that alarm. But I can no longer be astonished at anything done by the political Left with respect to Middle East policy or Islamic issues. The American and European Left (as opposed to moderate freedom-oriented liberals) have been solidly on the side of the violent Jew-hating Islamic factions for decades, just as they were on the side of Hitler and Stalin in the last century. The German-Soviet Pact for rearmament and conquest of Europe had secret roots back to 1922 in Wiemar Germany, and when formally announced as the Hitler-Stalin Pact in 1939, was wildly applauded by all the top Leftists of that day. The Euro-Left also applauded as Nazi stormtroopers marched their way into France and Belgium, greeting them with bouquets of flowers in some cases, and favorable reports in the left-wing newspapers. They do the same today with the Islamic terror brigades, in chronic apologetics for Muslim murdering, merged with simmering Jew-hatred.
Gatestone just published a note about how the Iranians are committing the same high level of mass murder today as is going on in Iraq and Syria at the hands of the Islamic State. But they do it quietly, behind prison walls, and don't make boasting YouTube videos of their sadistic handiwork. Obama and company spat in the face of the Iranian youth during their Velvet Revolution a few years ago. They were trying to oust the Mullah-generals from power, and pleading for help from America. The grandson of the Ayatollah Khomeini actually begged Obama to send the 101st Airborne Division to topple their Islamic totalitarian regime. But our elected top leaders of Leftist inspiration just ignored them, as Obama was too busy writing love letters to their top mass-murderer Ahamedinejad. Tens of thousands of young men and women involved in street protests were rounded up, tortured, raped and murdered by the "Revolutionary Guards". Quietly, of course. Rounded up and "disappeared". Hung. Head-shot. Pretty girls off to brothels run by and for the Mullahs and friends. No different from the Islamic State or Boko Harem, except it was more methodological and cold-blooded, done quietly behind the curtains. So Ahamedinejad could come and give ugly speeches to the UN, and get invited to lecture at the same Leftist universities that routinely fire, censor or send in mobs of leftist students to scream down anyone daring to criticize Islamic totalitarians.
Today, Western leaders engage in fake negotiations that basically help the same Iranian mass-murderers -- who finance terror groups globally -- to get the atomic bomb (with Russian help). Just as the same powerful Western leaders work to help cut-throat Islamic terror faction across the Middle East, and bring in bus-loads of similar Islamic fanatical "refugees" into rural American and European towns, disrupting them with predictable social violence. The violence of Saharasia thereby spreads and expands, with help from twisted-up but "smiling" elected officials who garnish majority votes from equally twisted-up and pathological electorates, all nourishing secret hatreds for heterosexual love, hatreds for peaceful societies, and agreeable sentiments towards utopian totalitarianism. Under such social conditions, it is no wonder why the democratic, industrious and peaceful educated Jew with light biophysical armoring is hated as a falsely accused "aggressor", for daring to defend themselves, while the severely-armored totalitarian theocratic, terror-endorsing and largely uneducated, love-hating Muslim, from vast regions of conquered Islamic lands, is embraced as "victim" -- and no matter how systematically their coreligionists invade, conquer and decimate other cultures and territories. Soon enough, following this trajectory, we will all become Winston Smith.
Defunding Israel but Blind to Islamophobia Ripoffs?
June 20, 2015
Only in the free Western world can such asymmetrical nonsense take place. Israel, the one western country unfortunately located in the middle of the Muslim world is the focus of accusations of Islamophobia and targeted with boycotts of its industries and products. How ironic. Israel is the one country where Arab citizens can vote, have the highest standard of living, and have any kind of future. Yet young stupid liberals in Europe and the US vent their spleen on Israel and turn a blind eye to the horrors of Islam. These are the monkeys who see no evil.
And in the United States and Europe, where Muslims have managed to find refuge, Islam's well-healed (Saudi money) legal arm (CAIR) brings lawsuits and carps about how badly Muslims are treated. They even take a ridiculous lawsuit to the American Supreme Court and win (!), permitting a woman to wear her headscarf in an upscale department store despite the store's standards. What a triumph for Islam.
How reciprocal is the Muslim world's liberality today around the world? Here are a few items from just one day's news (June 10).
o Sikhs. There used to be a thriving community of 100,000 Sikhs (non-Muslim) living in Afghanistan in 1990. There are now 2,500, and they are being pushed out. They cannot reclaim the houses and businesses and houses of worship that were seized by the Taliban. The same is true for Afghan Hindus. All are leaving and returning to India, which will be Afghanistan's loss. Tolerance is not Islam's strong suit.
o Women. While CAIR worries about a head-scarfed woman, Nigeria has more serious problems. A child forced to marry at just 13, who then poisoned her 35-year-old-husband and three of his friends (forced confession), was freed from execution but kept in juvenile detention. Her family wants her back so that they can force her into another marriage (if they don't kill her first). This is, after all, Islamic law. She was a second wife. Good old polygamy and child brides are favored by Nigerian Muslims. Another 13-year-old was recently executed for the same trumped-up crime.
o Karnak, Egypt. Islam's famous hatred of pre-Islamic history is illustrated again in an attack on one of Egypt's most important tourist attractions, the Temple of Karnak in Luxor. Visited by millions every year, touists will hesitate to come, which is of course the reason for the Islamic militants' attack. It is not enough to just hate rival religions.
o Christians in Pakistan. Christians are not doing well anywhere in the Muslim world. We hear more about Christian women, forced to convert, or kidnapped and raped (as in Iraq or Egypt or with the African schoolgirls), but this time it was a young man who was convicted of murder as a 15-year-old, whose confession was obtained under torture, although prosecution witnesses had since recanted. He was executed anyway despite international protests. The Pakistani death penalty was supposed to be reinstated only for terrorists----but so what. A Christian doesn't have a chance in Pakistan.
o Turkish Judge's Strange Standard. First, there were the beatings in their home in Ankara, her husband's fist crashing hard against her body. Then came the beatings at the shelter, where she'd found refuge with their child, when the husband came to visit. The judge imposed a fine: 3,000 liras (about $1,000) against the man for physical abuse, and 3,000 more against the wife, for the injury to her husband's hand when he'd beaten her too hard. At first I thought this had to be a joke, but it was not. Is this from some obscure passage in Sharia law, because it certainly is not in Turkish secular law! Kamal Ataturk must be turning over in his grave!
o Gaza. Where are all those demonstrators who want to defund Israel? Hamas spent all reconstruction money on tunnels and missiles and doesn't give a hoot about Gaza's civilians. Who is the bad guy here?
Where are all those feminists who are blind, deaf, and dumb to what Muslims are doing to women? Are they shopping in Abercrombie for headscarfs?
