Peace 101

I guess they didn’t have Peace Studies at Yale when John Kerry was there (earning a GPA below George W. Bush’s). If they had, he might have learned Golda Meir’s dictum, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”

She said that in 1957. It ain’t true yet:

Girl to PA TV about her goal in life:

“My life’s ambition is to reach the level that the Martyr fighter Dalal Mughrabi reached…”

The purpose of the PA TV program was explained by the TV host:

“Today we are in the Dalal Mughrabi School [in Gaza], to get to know the Palestinian Martyr and fighter…”

You all know who Dalal Mughrabi is, but I enjoy posting her picture almost as much as I enjoy posting Scarlett Johansson’s:

For different reasons, of course.

Palestinian Media Watch has documented that in addition to this school in the Gaza Strip, the PA has named numerous places and events after Mughrabi, who led the massacre of 37 civilians, including at least two additional PA schools and one kindergarten in the West Bank, summer camps, sporting events, and much more.

Do we have any schools or summer camps named after Jeffrey Dahmer? Charles Manson? Major Nidal Hassan?

But the Arabs do this kind of [bleep] all the time:

The official Palestinian Authority daily reported that the PA and Fatah inaugurated a forest they chose to name after arch-terrorist Abu Jihad: “The Martyr Abu Jihad Forest.”

Abu Jihad was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO’s military wing and planned many deadly terror attacks. These attacks, which according to the official PA daily killed at least 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history – the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Israel whacked him in 1988, and I guess the Arabs retired his nom de guerre with him. Pity. It’s pretty bad ass.

I don’t know if terrorists are born or made. But if they’re not born terrorists, the Arabs sure work hard at making them so.

We’ve covered this story before, but since our president and Secretary of State still seem ignorant of it, let’s hear it again:

“I’m not scared,” said the Syrian, whose name was withheld by the hospital because Israel and Syria are in a state of war. “Nothing worse will happen to me, so who cares if I’m in Israel?”

Despite decades of hostility between Israel and Syria, hundreds of victims of Syria’s 3-year-old civil war have received life-saving treatments in Israeli hospitals. Israeli medical personnel say that while they’re happy to treat Syrians, the wounded pose a unique set of challenges.

“As nurses, it’s unique to deal with wounded like this,” said Refaat Sharf, a nurse at Ziv, which has treated 162 Syrian patients. “We hadn’t been used to these injuries, neither in terms of their character nor their frequency.”

Since last year, more than 700 wounded Syrians have come to Israeli hospitals via the Syria-Israel border crossing on the Golan Heights. The Israel Defense Forces has set up a field hospital there, and transfers patients it cannot care for to nearby hospitals. In some cases it brings a family member as well.

Adi Pachter-Alt, Rambam’s deputy director of social work, said the patients’ reluctance to speak openly about their feelings comes more from the trauma of being injured and less from ill will toward Israel.

“It’s hard for us to give overall emotional support because they mistrust us,” Pachter-Alt said. “It’s not due to the state of war. It’s because you’re in a different state after trauma. You’re very alone, very suspicious.”

Medical personnel said that when they do leave the hospital, Syrians are grateful for the care they received. The Syrian patient in Ziv said his opinion of Israel had flipped during his stay there.

“Before the revolt, the authorities told us Israel was the enemy and we must fight them,” he said. “But after the recent events there, I saw that in Israel they take care of the patients. All of the Israelis I met, Arabs and Jews, seemed unified.”

Don’t tell Oxfam that! They’ll just want to hire Scarlett Johansson back, and they can’t have her!

What You Learn Watching CNN

Not much, and if you blink you’ll miss it:

Economics Minister and Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett took his message to the international media last night, in an interview with CNN.

Dismissing suggestions that Israel was responsible for the collapse of peace talks by building homes in Jerusalem, Bennett pointed out that the talks had already ground to a halt after PA leader Mahmoud Abbas refused to even recognize Israel’s existence as the nation-state of the Jewish people, while simultaneously demanding Israeli recognition of a “Palestinian homeland.”

“The reality… is that the era of these negotiations is over – it’s time for plan B… a new approach,” he said. “The approach that we’ve been applying for 20 years now clearly has reached its end.”

Bennett rejected out of hand calls for Israel to freeze construction in Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem, as part of proposals to eventually partition the city between the Jewish state and a future “Palestinian state”.

“Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital for just about 3,000 years, and just like I would never suggest to freeze building in London, where you’re sitting” Israel should not be expected to “freeze our own building in our own state”, he said.

Responding to his interviewer’s claim that “there has been Palestinian life in Jerusalem for thousands of years,” he retorted: “You’re talking about a Palestinian presence? Has there ever been a Palestinian state? Show me what its flag was, show me what its anthem was, show me who its leader is – show me anything that mentions the word ‘Palestinians’ more than 65 or 80 years ago.

“There has never been ‘Palestinian state’ – that’s one of the big lies that they’ve managed to press forward. The reality is that it’s been the Jewish land for 3,000 years, it’s still our land.”

Readers may have noticed I’ve dropped the affectation “palestinian” from the site almost entirely, preferring the more accurate term “Arab”—sometimes “Palestinian Arab”. Bloodthirstan aside, I don’t write about fictonal places.

That’s why I write about Israel:

Naftali Bennett has drafted a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday night, demanding that Israel establish full sovereignty over “settlement blocs” in Judea and Samaria.

“It is clear that the current process has run its course and we are entering a new era,” he stated. “For years now we have been slamming our heads against the wall repeatedly during negotiations – and not surprisingly the wall is not broken.”

“It is time for a new way of thinking,” he continued. “I ask you to hold a hearing as soon as possible on an alternative plan (Plan B) to start a process of applying Israeli sovereignty over those areas in Judea and Samaria which are controlled by Israel – Gush Ariel, Gush Etzion, Beit El, Ma’aleh Adumim and more.”

Bennett pointed out that those areas – including Gush Etzion, the Ariel and Bet El ‘blocs’ and Maale Adumim, among others – contain a large Jewish majority.

“In these areas live about 400 thousand Israelis – and only tens of thousands of individual Palestinians,” he noted. “These areas are widely thought to be agreed upon in national consensus and have security significance, historical significance, and value ??for the State of Israel.

“The process will be similar to Israel establishing sovereignty over Jerusalem during the Eshkol government and the Golan Heights during the Begin government,” he noted.

And maybe even sovereignty over—dare I say it—the Temple Mount?

Who is to Blame?

Did John Kerry raise this stain upon humankind in his chats with the Arabs?

Adelle Biton, the three-year-old infant who was critically injured nearly one year ago when Arab youths threw a rock at her family’s car and hit her directly in the head, was asked to be removed from Lowenstien Hospital in Ra’anana on Tuesday – and her mother Adva is disgusted with the unceremonious eviction.

The attack on Adelle occurred near the Samaria city of Ariel last March, when Arab terrorists hurled stones at the family car. After being in critical condition, the young girl miraculously managed to pull through her potentially fatal wounds, but has only been released from the hospital briefly and temporarily over the long months of recuperation due to the severity of her injuries.

The Biton family has spent most of the last 11 months by Adelle’s hospital bedside, holding a party at the hospital for her third birthday while she was still unconscious last April. Adelle has not fully recovered.

I don’t blame the hospital, I really don’t. They’ve done what they can for poor Adelle. Another child probably needs the bed. I certainly don’t blame the Bitons. Their crime was “driving while Jewish”. I blame the Israeli government, a little bit. There’s no reason the Bitons should be facing this heartache and hardship.

But you know who’s really responsible? The fu*king scum who put this poor girl in a coma in the first place! That’s whom I blame.

So, if I’m Israel, I devote the food budget of the unreleased prisoners to Adelle’s care and treatment. Will $1,000 a day help, Mrs. Biton? The prisoners will benefit from dying the deaths of true martyrs: starvation. Those 72 virgins will look pretty good, at least as appetizers, by the time they take delivery.

With continued care, maybe Adelle can return to form, from this:

to this:

While the prisoners can meditate on the insight of one who went before:

It’s a Miracle!

Jesus turned water into wine.

But I’d like to see the righteous dude try this!

The Palestinian Authority continues to disseminate a modern form of blood libel against Israel – by claiming that Israel deliberately distributes drugs to harm Palestinian Arab society.

Adnan Al-Damiri, the official spokesman of the PA Security Forces, reiterated this libel in February, stating that Israel “has spit up and vomited a shocking amount of drugs onto our land,” according to Palestinian Media Watch.

He explained that the PA had even seized a lab “turning marijuana into heroin.”

Imagine your young Arab ne’er-do-well sparking up a blunt to get his mellow on, only to find himself passed out in his own vomit because it was smack, not weed. I hate when that happens!

I would say that the Arab propagandist needs to stop his racial incitement, but what he really needs to do is read up on botany. The big dummy.

The Israeli Solution

Caroline Glick’s new book is out, and I feel like Steve Martin in The Jerk:

Untitled

LOPEZ: What is the single most important fact for anyone considering Mideast policy to know?

GLICK: That everything is changing before our eyes. Borders are changing. The way people view each other and the way they see the world and their places in it is changing. Old convictions are being replaced by new ones. In Israel, we see this most vividly among Israeli Arabs who are abandoning their radical leaders in droves and striving to integrate fully into Israeli society, including through vastly increased enlistment in the Israel Defense Forces. Trying to fix problems with the same tools that have been used for the past three generations is like trying to stop up a sea with a wine cork. New thinking is required today more than ever before.

LOPEZ: How has Washington “willfully trampled its own most cherished values” when it comes to the Middle East?

GLICK: The main way that Washington has done so has been by making the rapid establishment of a Palestinian state on the west bank of the Jordan River and in Jerusalem the most urgent goal of its Middle East policy. Such a state would be a racist state whose rulers demand that it be ethnically cleansed of all Jewish presence before they will even accept independence. To advance this end, successive U.S. administrations have rejected Jews’ right to own property in the historic heartland of the Jewish people in Judea and Samaria and in much of Israel’s capital city. Aside from that, the Palestinian state the U.S. seeks to establish will be led by terrorists who continue to support terrorism and indoctrinate their people with genocidal Jew-hatred marinated in anti-Americanism.

In other words, the Palestinian state the U.S. seeks to establish is an affront to the moral foundations of the United States, and contradicts all of America’s core interests in the Middle East.

But this is her best point:

The two-state-solution policy assumes not only that guilt for the 65-year Arab war on Israel lies solely or predominantly on Israel’s shoulders but that all Arab-related conflict too can be ascribed to the actions of Israel. The idea behind the policy model is that the root cause of instability in the region is the absence of a Palestinian state, and that the absence of a Palestinian state is Israel’s fault.

Former president Bill Clinton put it this way: The establishment of a Palestinian state would “take about half the impetus in the whole world — not just the region, the whole world — for terror away. It would have more impact than anything else that could be done.” And the party that most international actors view as guilty for the absence of a state of Palestine is Israel. Israel is blamed for the absence of that state because, in the common line of thinking, it refuses to give up sufficient quantities of land to the PLO to satisfy its leaders.

Now, if Israel is responsible for the terrorism — not just in the Middle East, but throughout the world — then there is no reason for anyone to think about anything that happens in the Arab world. Everything regionally and internationally will be better if Israel just straightens up and flies right. This is a shocking negation of Arab agency and humanity. If Israel is to blame, then why think about the treatment of women and girls in Arab societies? Why think about the endemic poverty, the illiteracy? Why think about jihad, and Islamic doctrines that preach it?

In other words, the two-state-solution policy, which places most of the blame for the pathologies of the Arab world on Israel, also ignores the Arab world, and so only harms the Arabs — and the U.S., which is basing its Middle East policy on pure nonsense.

Pure nonsense such as this:

“These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an advanced instrument of evil. They say, the Holocaust, and so on – fine, why are they doing this to us? Therefore, I believe that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them. I am informing the murderer of his death.”

Look, I’m no independent arbiter—I’m a Glickite. But the rest of you should consider her argument.

Daily Humiliation of the Palestinian People™ Daily Update

Americans learned to choose between “guns and butter”. Arabs have yet to learn to choose between missiles and electricity.

To choose wisely, at any rate:

The Gaza Strip’s only power plant shut down Saturday due to a lack of fuel from Israel, which closed a goods crossing after rocket attacks, the energy authority said.

“The plant has completely ceased to function due to a lack of fuel caused by (Israel’s) closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing,” said Fathi al-Sheikh Khalil, deputy director of the energy authority in the Palestinian territory ruled by the Islamist movement Hamas.

On Thursday, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon ordered the closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and Gaza and the Erez pedestrian crossing “until further security assessments,” after dozens of rockets were fired at Israel by Gaza terrorists on Wednesday.

I’m sure no one would dispute the notion that Israel can act in its own self defense (no one not a European commissioner, that is).

But can we also note that Israel is not alone?

A high committee against the Gaza siege on Wednesday erected a tent in front of Egypt’s embassy in Gaza City to host activists demanding that Egypt reopen the southern Rafah crossing.

Deputy speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Ahmad Bahar, who joined the inauguration of the protest tent, delivered a speech urging leaders of Arab countries to end the siege imposed on Gaza.

It is a responsibility of the Arab and Islamic nations to support the Palestinian people, he said.

God knows they’ve never been able to support themselves.

Just three months ago, Israel was providing food, fuel and aid to the Arabs of Gaza, even helping getting tomatoes to market. But the Arabs insist on exporting other goods.

So, they can sit in the dark for all I care.

Jewish State, Shmewish State

John Kerry doesn’t see the point of a Jewish state, but at least one Arab occupier of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza sure does:

“These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an advanced instrument of evil. They say, the Holocaust, and so on – fine, why are they doing this to us? Therefore, I believe that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them. I am informing the murderer of his death.”
[Official PA TV, March 12, 2014]

How are you supposed to negotiate with people like that? “You get Jerusalem on Mondays, Thursdays, and alternate Fridays, and we get it the rest of the time.” Is John Kerry on drugs (besides Botox)?

Still, it was nice of that Jew-hating thug (not Kerry, the Arab) to credit Israel as an “advanced” instrument of evil. No second-rate, dime-store instrument of evil, but a top-notch one. I bet Israel blushed to read it.

Blasts From the Past

Arabs in action:

A video released online shows how Islamic Jihad terrorists fired this evening’s barrage of rocket attacks from within heavily-populated areas in Gaza.

The footage, which was posted on a Hamas-linked Facebook page, shows the challenges often faced by the Israeli military in responding to such attacks whilst avoiding civilian casualties.

It illustrates what Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, have often referred to as a “double war-crime”: the firing of rockets against Israeli civilians, whilst using the Palestinian Arab civilian population in Gaza as cover, and in the hope that any Israeli response will draw condemnation for striking a civilian area.

Arabs in words:

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion – the swindlers of Zion – have revealed their schemes to subjugate the nations and gain control of the world. They are planning means to take over the reins of world politics, by spreading organized destruction throughout the countries and by corrupting people through the seizure of the banking system, the goldsmith profession and the control of capital, natural resources and the workforce, as well as by taking control of the media and the arts, and channeling them to serve their goals and realize their aims.

Year after year, it never changes. Neither does the condemnation of Israel for exercising self-defense. The only thing that has changed is the understanding of your humble correspondent, and those like me, who now see the world as it is, not as it has been described to un on NPR.

Palestinian Arab Terrorists Attempt To Blow Up Residential Buildings

Nice, nice people.

A massive gas explosion was narrowly averted Tuesday morning after residents of Armon Hanatziv reported high concentrations of leaking gas and subsequently discovered two deliberately severed gas lines to their building, police said.

According to a police spokesman, upon smelling the odorous gas several residents promptly contacted officers who arrived within minutes along with Magen David Adom and firefighting units to prevent an imminent and deadly blast.

“The pipes were intentionally cut which caused extreme danger, so police evacuated three buildings in the area and shut off the gas supply,” the police official said shortly after the incident.

“Thankfully, we managed to prevent an explosion.”

While stopping short of conclusively deeming the crime a terrorist attack, the official said police are investigating a number of possibilities to determine the motivation behind it.

“This was very suspicious and a special investigation unit is investigating all possible directions,” the spokesperson said. “There would have been an explosion within minutes if the gas was not shut down.”

I’m at the point of believing in an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Israelis should randomly and secretly select three apartment buildings in Palestinian areas and sever the gas lines. Maybe they’ll be lucky enough to catch it in time, maybe not.

Get Me Rewrite!

When we’ve covered the story of poor sweet little Adele Biton, the toddler grievously injured by rock-throwing Arabs, we’ve done so with a tinge of optimism. She seemed to be getting better after her coma and long stay in a rehabilitation hospital.

Then we saw this story that things were not so rosy.

And now this:

Ten months ago, Adelle Biton, then two years old, was riding in her family’s car along with her mother and two of her three older sisters. Suddenly, the family was ambushed by a group of Palestinian Arab men, who hurled heavy rocks at the car – hitting baby Adelle, and causing a crash that injured the other girls as well.

Adelle was left critically wounded, and spent months in a coma. However, half a year after the attack doctors were optimistic, saying Adelle had made a remarkable recovery and was expected to make further progress.

Sadly, the expected improvement in her condition did not come to pass. Now, staff at Loewenstein Hospital Rehabilitation Center in Ra’anana say there is nothing more they can do for the badly handicapped young girl – and have told her parents to take her home.

“We didn’t choose for [Adelle] to be in this situation. It’s hard enough for us already. We expect the government to help us,” a relative said.

“The family’s home in Yakir is not set up for Adelle yet, not in terms of access, and more importantly, not in terms of the necessary medical equipment,” they warned.

The family turned to MK Shuli Muallem (Jewish Home), who has helped them get support from the Health Ministry.

Muallem sent a letter to the Health Ministry warning that Adelle faces immediate release from the hospital “despite agreements,” and that the family does not have what it needs to help her.

Health Ministry officials issued a statement saying that ministry staff will work to help the Biton family prepare to care for Adelle, “and to promote understanding between the hospital and the family regarding the date of release.”

Parents Rafi and Adva Biton declined to be interviewed for the report.

I have no doubt that the Biton family will receive the resources it needs to care for Adele for the rest of her life, should they need to. But I suggest that Israel deduct the money from any taxes collected on behalf of the Arab occupiers of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza.

Or a levy on these sort of activities:

[F]ollowing discussions between COGAT and the International aid agencies operating in Gaza, the transfer of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing will continue tomorrow. This includes 1.2 million liters of gas: 800,000 liters of diesel fuel for transportation, and 400,000 liters of diesel fuel for the Gaza power station, and another 200 tons of household gas.

Earlier today two Palestinian ambulances were rescued by IDF forces of the Judea Territorial Brigade after getting stuck in the snow on road 35 near Hebron. Another rescue mission by the Shomron Territorial Brigade took place on road 60 near Ramallah, as a Red Crescent emergency vehicle was unable to continue driving.

You never hear these stories in the press (though you do here); nor about the atrocity committed on a two-year-old girl.

Yet Israel announces the building of new houses for a growing population (thanks to a high fertility rate among Jews in Israel), and you’d think they had shelled a kindergarten. Which is what the Gazan Arabs do—but you get my point.

Adele and all the other victims of Arab terror could live as lavishly as Saddam Hussein or the recently deposed Ukraine scumbag, Victor Sonofabitch, off the proceeds of this criminal regime. If they have enough money for Qassam and Grad missiles, they can cover her physical, occupational, and speech therapies.

I Don’t See the Problem

Just another anti-Jewish caricature, complete with tentacles and a big nose.

So?

A caricature of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in Germany’s largest broadsheet newspaper shows anti-Semitism reminiscent of the Nazi propaganda, say critics.

The cartoon, in the liberal Süddeutsche Zeitung, depicts Mark Zuckerberg as an octopus with a hook nose devouring the world’s technology. It appeared in the Friday edition of the Munich-based paper along with the International New York Times. The drawing of the 29-year-old Zuckerberg comes on the heels of Facebook’s $19 billion purchase of the messaging startup company WhatsApp.

“The cartoon is starkly reminiscent of a 1938 Nazi cartoon depicting Winston Churchill as a Jewish octopus encircling the globe,” said Efraim Zuroff, of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “And if anyone has any doubts about the anti-Semitic dimension of the cartoon, we can point to Mark Zuckerberg’s very prominent nose, which is not the case in real life. Absolutely disgusting!”

The caption under the cartoon, drawn by Burkhard Mohr, says in German “Krake-Zuckerberg” which translates as “Octopus-Zuckerberg.”

The cartoon echoed a theme “reminiscent of Nazi propaganda which sought to warn Germany of the threat posed by Jews/world Jewry, and in a certain sense particularly by those Jews who had assimilated into German society, and could not be automatically identified as such,” Zuroff said.

Like the Nazis, huh? The Nazis of the West Bank and Gaza:

A Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education monthly periodical chose to include an essay written by a PA teacher describing Israel’s creation as an attack by “an enemy like an octopus… with burning flames shooting out from between its fangs”[.]

[Do octopi have fangs?]

“The Meccan [Quran] chapter entitled ‘Jews’ or ‘Children of Israel’ is remarkable… It’s about today’s Jews, those of our century, and speaks only of extermination and digging graves… This chapter sentences the Jews to extermination before a single Jew existed on earth… Palestine’s blessing is linked to destruction of the center of global corruption [Jews of Israel], the snake’s head. When the snake’s head of [global] corruption is cut off, here in Palestine, and when the octopus’ [Jew's] tentacles are cut off around the world, the real blessing will come with the destruction of the Jews, here in Palestine, and it is one of the splendid real blessings in Palestine.”

“The Zionist octopus’ arms reach out in every direction…”

Host: “The Israelis – or, moreover, the occupation, the Zionists – are pushing us to finally give in to them, that Haifa does not belong to me, I give it up. Haifa does not belong to us, Acre does not belong to us, Acre doesn’t belong to us, Jaffa does not belong to us. Like they demand that all of Palestine does not belong to us. This ancient olive tree also does not belong to us; We will give it up for Israel. You lived through the revolutions; how do you see Palestine right now?”

Mustafa: “Israel is an octopus; it is not satisfied with a little, or with a lot.

Like those Nazis you mean? Europe and the West seem to have no problem with those Nazis. What’s the diff? [All citations courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch.]

PS: Did the International NEW YORK TIMES really run the cartoon? I couldn’t find it.
