Israel is very much behaving like a whore who urges her
town’s folks to erect a great memorial plaque to celebrate
and glorify her chastity.
This week, some Zionist pundits both in Israel and North
America have urged the Israeli government to boycott the
Olympic Games in China to protest that country’s dismal
human rights record.
These self-righteous Zionists claimed that a country that
rose from the ashes of the holocaust shouldn’t have normal
relations with a country that systematically violates human
rights and civil liberties.
There is no doubt that China is a prominent violator of
human rights (Is the US any better)!!! But the more
important question in this context is really whether
Israel, a state that has been murdering, enslaving and
tormenting another people for the past sixty years, is in a
position to lecture or criticize China or any other country
on the subject of human rights.
One can argue with little exaggeration that Israel itself
is a crime against humanity since its very creation in
Palestine in 1948 entailed the extirpation and dispersion
of 90% of Palestine’s indigenous inhabitants.
In fact, the systematic ethnic cleansing from
Palestine-Israel of non-Jews, who constituted more than 80%
of the total population, is still an ongoing process.
Moreover, the nearly daily demolition of Palestinian homes
in the Negev desert and the West Bank, along with the
unceasing theft of Arab land, show that Israel is far worse
than China with regard to observance of human rights and
the rule of international law.
And while China does indulge in serious violations of human
rights, especially in the Tibet region and against certain
religious minorities, Israel routinely commits serious war
crimes and crimes against humanity against the Palestinians
and other peoples of the Middle East.
These crimes include, inter alia, deliberate and calculated
murder of innocent civilians, blockading civilian
population and denying it access to food and fuel and
health care, bombing apartment buildings and crowded
streets, vandalizing and ransacking civilian institutions
such as orphanages, schools, hospitals and sports
facilities and encouraging Nazi-like Jewish settlers to
terrorize and murder Palestinian civilians for the purpose
of driving them away from their land.
Israel also has been burying nuclear wastes in the vicinity
of Arab communities, such as in the southern Hebron region,
which is causing a dramatic increase in the occurrence of
Two years ago, the Israeli air force dropped millions of
cluster-bomblets on Lebanon, enough to kill millions of
In short, it is really very difficult to imagine a crime
that Israel has not committed. True, Israel, unlike China,
enjoys the benefit of world-wide hasbara (propaganda)
machine extending from Los Angels to Sydney which
celebrates Israeli “democracy” and “liberty.” However, the
truth, the naked truth, is that Israel remains a murderer,
thief and liar.
Israel may very well have been successful in hiding its
evil nature from the eyes of many people, especially in the
West. However, this evil will eventually corrode Israel
from within and bring its demise.
The brazen depravity of Zionist thinking had another morbid
expression this week. The Israeli government reportedly
protested to Turkey a planed visit to Ankara by Iranian
Israeli officials have called on Turkish leaders to cancel
the visit to protest the Iranian nuclear program and
Ahmadinejad’s rejection of Zionism.
Again, the odor of hypocrisy is wafting all over the place.
First of all, Israel has no right to dictate to Turkey, a
nation of 75 million people, which foreign statesman to
invite and which not to invite. Turkey, after all, is a
sovereign state that is mature enough to decide for itself.
Turkey will not view favorably any foreign interference in
its internal affairs especially if such interference comes
from a state that is more sinful than sin itself.
Second, a country that possess hundreds of nuclear heads,
many of them are probably directed at Muslim cities in the
Middle East, have no right to protest Iran’s nuclear
Indeed, if Israel, India, Pakistan, U.S., Russia, China,
France Britain and other countries have the right to
develop nuclear technology and even nuclear weapons, why
can’t Iran, a country that had a prosperous civilization
thousands of years before the discovery of America.
Moreover, with such a holier- than- thou attitude, Israel
is really not morally fit to protest Ahmadinejad’s
Israel today spearheads a worldwide venomous campaign of
hatred and incitement against Islam and Muslims. Israeli
and Zionist leaders, officials, diplomats, writers and
spokespersons routinely incite against nearly one quarter
Six decades ago, Nazi leaders in Europe spread the message
“kill the Jews, don’t let them take over Europe, don’t let
them destroy Christianity, don’t let them destroy mother
Germany.”! Today the chorus of hate from Jerusalem to New
York to Sydney is spreading a similar message: “Islam is
taking over Europe!!, kill the Muslims, kill the
terrorists, wipe Islam off from the face of earth.!!”
Just read the hateful Zionist press such as the Jerusalem
Post, the New York Post, Commentary, the New Republic, Wall
Street Journal, Washington Post, the International Herald
Tribune, to mention just a few example, and you will see
how the “Nazi mind” is still very much alive and kicking 63
years after the demise of the Third Reich.
Today, Israel is waging a dirty war against Islam under the
pretext of fighting Hamas and other Palestinian resistance
Israel is destroying Palestinian schools, closing down
Palestinian orphanages, and, probably in collusion with the
quisling-like Palestinian Authority, terrorizing Islamic
institutions that predated the appearance of Hamas by many
Israel is arresting and torturing young men and women for
the pettiest Islamic activity. Israel is really very much
like Nazi Germany prior to the outbreak of the Second World
War in 1939.
Needless to say, such a state has no right to preach
righteousness to the world.
In fact, with such a manifestly diabolical behavior, Israel
is not only an abomination upon humanity, it is also a
cancer upon the collective conscience of the Jewish people.
