Archive for Holocaust Denial

Mahmoud Abbas, PhD

We’ve made reference to his Holocaust denial, but now we can read it for ourselves—thanks to Mahmoud Abbas!

“The Zionist movement did not send any assistance, financial or otherwise, for the victims of Nazism and it did not allow any other side to provide any kind of aid. The Zionist movement concealed the information that came from within the ghetto walls and concentration camps, news that shed light on what was really happening. If it had to publish anything, it did so by questioning that information and diminishing its importance.”

“Zionism adopted the Nazi selection principle, when it went to save Jews from the slaughter. It made itself the ultimate arbiter regarding Jewish life, deciding who deserves to live and who deserves to die.”

“The Zionist movement did not make any effort to convince Western countries to take in the Jewish refugees escaping the horrors of the Holocaust. It even placed obstacles I [sic] the way of efforts made by Christian groups or by non-Zionist Jews or a number of countries that saw fit to find a solution to this humanitarian problem.”

“All of this wasn’t enough – the Zionist movement led a broad campaign of incitement against the Jews living under Nazi rule to arouse the government’s hatred of them, to fuel vengeance against them and to expand the mass extermination.”

From Mahmoud Abbas’ book “The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism” (Billsan Publising House, Ramallah, 2011), based on his doctoral dissertation.

I feel soiled just having read that.

I’m sure he’s changed since then:

In a condolence letter to the family of terrorist Mutaz Hijazi, who was killed following his attempted murder of Rabbi Yehuda Glick last week, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas referred to the terrorist as a “Shahid” – a Martyr who “rose to Heaven while defending our people’s rights and holy places.” Abbas called Israel’s apprehending and killing the terrorist in a shoot-out an “abominable crime… by the killing and terror gangs of the Israeli occupation army.”

An unfortunate slip of the tongue.

This is more typical:

This week, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas ended a speech about the current conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza with a quote from the Quran justifying war. His Fatah party interpreted Abbas’ statement to mean that fighting against Israel is justified on religious Islamic grounds:

“[PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas] concluded his brief speech with the first verse of the Quran that permits Muslims to wage war for Allah.”
[Facebook, “Fatah – The Main Page”, July 22, 2014]

Presenting a conflict as a religious war can have dangerous implications. In September 2000, Yasser Arafat said that then-Israeli MP Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount defiled the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He used this claim as a guise to launch the “Al-Aqsa Intifada” (i.e., second Intifada) terror campaign, which led to the deaths of over 1200 Israelis and tourists and 4000 Palestinians.

In 2012 the PA’s highest PA religious leader, the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, presented the killing of Jews by Muslims as a religious Islamic goal.

Oh wait…

How about this?

In December 2013, Israel released 26 Palestinian terrorist murderers from prison. In his speech at the PA event celebrating their release, Mahmoud Abbas welcomed the terrorists and called them “heroes” four times during his speech:

“[The release of our prisoners] is a day of joy for our nation, for our people, for our heroic prisoners… There will be more groups of heroes who will come to us… They [the Israelis] postponed these heroes’ release by 24 hours… we congratulate you and ourselves for the [release] of these heroes.”
[Official PA TV, Dec. 31, 2013]

Oh sh*t:

Palestinian Authority TV produced a short video of Mahmoud Abbas calling for Palestinians to prevent “in any way” Jews from going to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Significantly, PA TV then broadcast it 19 times in 3 days.

“It’s not enough for us to say: ‘There are those carrying out Ribat’ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It’s not enough for us to say: ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]’. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places.”
[Official PA TV, Oct. 17-19, 2014]

At least he’s a man who knows his own mind!

Pity About the H-Word

Sorry to all you “folks” who perished in the camps.

An official statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust issued by EU High Representative Lady Catherine Ashton, does not identify who those victims were. The brief statement reads,

The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the Commission, issued the following statement today:

Today the international community remembers the victims of the Holocaust. We honour every one of those brutally murdered in the darkest period of European history. We also want to pay a special tribute to all those who acted with courage and sacrifice to protect their fellow citizens against persecution.

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we must keep alive the memory of this tragedy. It is an occasion to remind us all of the need to continue fighting prejudice and racism in our own time. We must remain vigilant against the dangers of hate speech and redouble our commitment to prevent any form of intolerance. The respect of human rights and diversity lies at the heart of what the European Union stands for.

We in Bloodthirstan also bow our heads in memory of the homosexuals, Catholics, and gypsies who died in the “tragedy”. If we left anyone out—sorry, communists!—please drop us a line to remind us.

One serious comment on the use of “tragedy” to describe the attempted (and largely accomplished) annihilation of Jews from the continent of Europe. (Oh Jews—of course!) An airplane crash is a tragedy, an avalanche. The long-planned, carefully organized, fully funded extermination of a race of people (as Jews were defined by Nazis) is not a tragedy. 9/11 was not a tragedy. The Marathon bombing was not a tragedy. Tragedies are acts of nature, or other unforeseen occurrences. They may be subject to blame or responsibility—was faulty maintenance at fault for the plane crash?; did poor trail grooming lead to the avalanche?—but tragedies are not written about in advance (Mein Kampf), not an agenda item at a conference (Wannsee).

That a spokesman for Europe can’t bring herself to mention the six million Jews* brutally murdered across the continent, and can’t even call the crime by its proper name, is actually kind of scary. She has nothing to say to the Jewish state of Israel.

* A conservative estimate.

Did You Hear the One About the Holocaust?

It’ll slay ya:

Following are excerpts from an Egyptian show titled “Anybody Knows?!”, which was posted on the Internet on May 19, 2013.

In the studio

Little boy: Welcome to our show. Today, we’ll be talking about…

On the street

What is the Holocaust?

Woman: The what?

Little boy: The Holocaust.

Woman: I don’t know.

Man: The Holocaust? I’ve got no idea.

Young man: Give me some options to choose from. In Germany? I’ve heard about it, but don’t know exactly what happened.

Another young man: The what?

Little boy: The Holocaust…

Young man: Holocaust? Can you repeat the question?

Little boy: The Holocaust.

Young man: What Holocaust? I have no idea.

Old woman: I don’t know.

Young woman: Why don’t you tell me what it is? I told you that I don’t know. There’s nothing wrong with learning from someone younger than you.

Man: Ah, the Holocaust? You mean Hitler’s Holocaust? During the war, he burned [Jews] in crematoria.

Another woman: Hitler captured the Jews and burned and gassed them. He killed many of them. I’m not convinced that this really happened though.

Another man: This is a new term. It’s the first time I’ve heard it in Egypt.

Youth: Either he burned the Jews, or the Jews burned… I don’t exactly remember.

Young man: The Holocaust took place during World War II. Hitler rounded up the Jews and put them in things called gas chambers. There are disputes regarding the figures. Some say three million Jews were killed, and others say it was one million. Some question whether it occurred.

In the studio

Little boy: In the Holocaust, lots of people were rounded up and killed.

You sure, kid? Sounds like the average man and woman on the Arab Street doesn’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

This explains a lot.

Nazi Butcher Living In Minnesota Since 1949

Why am I not surprised?

I’m not surprised because the northern midwest has always been a hotbed of Jew hatred (witness the Charles Lindbergh wing at the Minneapolis airport, why not just put up a George Wallace wing?), and there have been stories all my life about how the Scandinavians (Nordics, Aryans) in the area have hidden Nazis. Apparently, they get along quite well with the Ukrainians.

Read this carefully and see if you can spot the missing word. Hint: It begins with a J.

A top commander of a Nazi SS-led unit accused of burning villages filled with women and children lied to American immigration officials to get into the United States and has been living in Minnesota since shortly after World War II, according to evidence uncovered by The Associated Press.

Michael Karkoc, 94, told American authorities in 1949 that he had performed no military service during World War II, concealing his work as an officer and founding member of the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defense Legion and later as an officer in the SS Galician Division, according to records obtained by the AP through a Freedom of Information Act request. The Galician Division and a Ukrainian nationalist organization he served in were both on a secret American government blacklist of organizations whose members were forbidden from entering the United States at the time.

Though records do not show that Karkoc had a direct hand in war crimes, statements from men in his unit and other documentation confirm the Ukrainian company he commanded massacred civilians, and suggest that Karkoc was at the scene of these atrocities as the company leader. Nazi SS files say he and his unit were also involved in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, in which the Nazis brutally suppressed a Polish rebellion against German occupation.

The U.S. Department of Justice has used lies about wartime service made in immigration papers to deport dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals. The evidence of Karkoc’s wartime activities uncovered by AP has prompted German authorities to express interest in exploring whether there is enough to prosecute. In Germany, Nazis with “command responsibility” can be charged with war crimes even if their direct involvement in atrocities cannot be proven.

Karkoc refused to discuss his wartime past at his home in Minneapolis, and repeated efforts to set up an interview, using his son as an intermediary, were unsuccessful.
Efraim Zuroff, the lead Nazi hunter at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem, said that based on his decades of experience pursuing Nazi war criminals, he expects that the evidence showing Karkoc lied to American officials and that his unit carried out atrocities is strong enough for deportation and war-crimes prosecution in Germany or Poland.
“In America this is a relatively easy case: If he was the commander of a unit that carried out atrocities, that’s a no brainer,” Zuroff said. “Even in Germany … if the guy was the commander of the unit, then even if they can’t show he personally pulled the trigger, he bears responsibility.”
Former German army officer Josef Scheungraber – a lieutenant like Karkoc – was convicted in Germany in 2009 on charges of murder based on circumstantial evidence that put him on the scene of a Nazi wartime massacre in Italy as the ranking officer.

German prosecutors are obligated to open an investigation if there is enough “initial suspicion” of possible involvement in war crimes, said Thomas Walther, a former prosecutor with the special German office that investigates Nazi war crimes.

Prosecution in Poland may also be a possibility because most of the unit’s alleged crimes were against Poles on Polish territory. But Karkoc would be unlikely to be tried in his native Ukraine, where such men are today largely seen as national heroes who fought for the country against the Soviet Union.

Karkoc now lives in a modest house in northeast Minneapolis in an area with a significant Ukrainian population. Even at his advanced age, he came to the door without help of a cane or a walker. He would not comment on his wartime service for Nazi Germany.
“I don’t think I can explain,” he said.
Members of his unit and other witnesses have told stories of brutal attacks on civilians.

One of Karkoc’s men, Vasyl Malazhenski, told Soviet investigators that in 1944 the unit was directed to “liquidate all the residents” of the village of Chlaniow in a reprisal attack for the killing of a German SS officer, though he did not say who gave the order.

“It was all like a trance: setting the fires, the shooting, the destroying,” Malazhenski recalled, according to the 1967 statement found by the AP in the archives of Warsaw’s state-run Institute of National Remembrance, which investigates and prosecutes German and Soviet crimes on Poles during and after World War II.

“Later, when we were passing in file through the destroyed village,” Malazhenski said, “I could see the dead bodies of the killed residents: men, women, children.

Did you guess the missing word? There’s more to this article at the link, along with photos of this lovely gentlemen and others of his ilk. I bet he’s a real nice guy, children love him, etc. I also bet that Eric Holder’s Injustice Department will not make a move to deport him.

Morsi Aide: Holocaust A “Myth”

We will send them fighter jets and they are raging Jew haters

An aide to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi claims that the Holocaust was a hoax.

Fathi Shihab Eddim, Morsi’s senior aide, made the comments on Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27.

“The myth of the Holocaust is an industry that America invented,” Eddim said, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

Eddim, who is reportedly responsible for appointing editors for the country’s state-run newspapers, asserted that 6 million Jews actually moved to the United States during World War II.

“U.S. intelligence agencies in cooperation with their counterparts in allied nations during World War II created it to destroy the image of their opponents in Germany, and to justify war and massive destruction against military and civilian facilities of the Axis powers, and especially to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bomb,” Eddim said, according to the Telegraphic Agency.

Morsi has also been under fire for comments he made about Jews in 2010, saying that they are the “descendants of apes and pigs.”

This is better than Mubarak? Really?

Jew Hatred At The NY Times

Nothing like calling the people you cover “pig-like”

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof retweeted a message that called the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the National Rifle Association “the 2 most pig like lobbies” in America.

The message written Jan. 16 came from M.J. Rosenberg, a notorious critic of Israel, and came on the same day that the Times ran an editorial criticizing Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi for calling Jews “the descendants of apes and pigs,” the Free Beacon newspaper in Washington reported.

“OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month. Next: Chamber of Commerce,” read Rosenberg’s tweet, retweeted by Kristof and many others.

Kristof has not responded to the Free Beacon article, according to the newspaper.

Kristof has strongly criticized Israel in the past, reportedly blaming Israel for the stalled peace process, among other things. He also has written his own controversial tweets about Israel, Free Beacon reported.

Obviously, the NY Times is antisemitic and has demonstrably been since at least the 1930s. They failed to report the holocaust, although their own internal documents prove that they knew about it as it was unfolding and didn’t want to appear “too Jewish”. They didn’t accurately describe the majority of victims of the concentration camps as Jewish until 1950, five years after the war ended. Instead they listed nationality, as if people were there because they were Hungarian, rather than because they were Jewish. So the NY Times was and is a despicable organization.

Israel’s Partner in Peace

Loves him some Mufti:

Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas spoke glowingly last Friday of the “legacy” of the infamous Hajj Amin al-Husseini, who was a collaborator with the Nazis, and was prepared to conduct the mass murder of the Jews of the Land of Israel in the event of a Nazi invasion. The Mufti, Abbas said, was a great man whose ways should be emulated by all PA Arabs, and was worthy of great praise.

After the Mufti was forced by the British to leave Mandatory Palestine, he took up residence in Europe, and met Hitler in Italy. The two agreed that Hitler would murder the Jews of Europe, and that he, the Mufti, would organize the murder of the Jews of the Middle East, when the time was ripe. During the war, the Mufti broadcast pro-Nazi propaganda in Arabic from Berlin. Later he reached Cairo, where he was one of the founders of the Arab League, which adopted the pact between the Mufti and Hitler as a basic document of the organization.

More about the Mufti:

The Mufti offered Hitler his “thanks for the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches….The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely….the Jews….” Hitler replied:

Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine….Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle….Germany’s objective [is]…solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere….In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. The Mufti thanked Hitler profusely.

In 1945, Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his role in recruiting 20,000 Muslim volunteers for the SS, who participated in the killing of Jews in Croatia and Hungary. He escaped from French detention in 1946, however, and continued his fight against the Jews from Cairo and later Beirut. He died in 1974.

The Arabs collaborated with the Nazis, believed in and practiced fascism, and shared in the Nazi’s “final solution”.

As for Abbas and his so-called “moderation”, he is just another Nazi with a nicer suit.

They Just Don’t Want Peace

Although nothing that the Palestinians could say or do is particularly shocking, this is just so sad.

Teaching Holocaust is “crime against Palestinians,” says Gaza group following report UN agency plans to re-introduce course. PHOTO: REUTERS/IBRAHEEM ABU MUSTAFA
Hamas on Wednesday reiterated its strong opposition to teaching the Holocaust in UNRWA-run schools in the Gaza Strip.

The Refugees Affairs Department of Hamas said that teaching the Holocaust was a “crime against the issue of the refugees that is aimed at cancelling their right of return.”

The Hamas response came in response to unconfirmed reports in a number of Arab media outlets to the effect that UNRWA was planning to re-introduce the Holocaust into its school curriculum.

UNRWA teachers in Jordan also announced this week their strong opposition to teaching the Holocaust in their schools.

Hamas called on UNRWA to stop “passing suspicious projects in the context of services it provides to Palestinian refugees.”

The children at UNRWA schools don’t need material about the Holocaust, Hamas said. “Rather, they need to be re-tought the history and geography of Palestine as a basic subject. The children are entitled to learn about the massacres perpetrated by the Zionist enemy against the Palestinians since the Nakba [disaster].”

Re-introduce the Holocaust into the curriculum… I wonder what percentage of Palestinian Arabs have even heard of the Holocaust?

Anti-Zionism = Antisemitism

And you dare to question it?

The US head of the pro-Palestinian group The Free Gaza Movement unleashed a wave of criticism over the last several days because of a Twitter post asserting that Zionists ran concentration camps and murdered Jews.

Greta Berlin, the American co-founder of the group Free Gaza, tweeted on September 30 “Zionists operated the concentration camps and helped murder millions of innocent Jews.”

Berlin’s tweet blaming Zionists for the Holocaust caught the eye of Avi Mayer, who oversees social media for the Jewish Agency for Israel. Mayer was the first to draw attention to Berlin on his Twitter feed, writing “the folks behind the #Gaza flotilla – reveal themselves to be the lowest anti- Semites.” Mayer documented the chronology of Berlin’s attacks on Jews and Israel, as well as the Holocaust revisionism of the Free Gaza group.

Mayer wrote in a blog post, “The Free Gaza Movement is the key actor behind the successive flotillas that have sought to violate the maritime closure around Gaza in support of Hamas. It is chaired by Huwaida Arraf, who also heads the International Solidarity Movement (and has endorsed the use of violence against Israel), and its Board of Advisers includes such luminaries as Naomi Klein, Peter Hansen, and Jenny Tonge.”

Prof. Gerald Steinberg, the head of the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, said “The NGO activists in the so-called ‘Free Gaza’ campaign have always reflected obsessive, irrational and immoral characteristics, and the revelation of links to crude anti-Semitism provides additional evidence,” in an email to The Jerusalem Post.

Here’s her “apology”.

According to an article in Canada’s National Post, Berlin said the offending tweet was meant for her private Facebook account and was mistakenly sent from the Free Gaza Twitter account. The Canadian daily reported that a tweet from Free Gaza quoted her as saying, “I shared it without watching it. I am sorry that I just sent it forward without looking at it. It won’t happen again.”

Please—let it happen again! And again and again. It’s important to know how you really feel. People don’t believe us. They may choose not to believe you. But now is no time to go all shy on us.

Holocaust Denier Running For Congressman In Illinois

A Republican this time.

A Republican candidate for US Congress from Illinois has denied that the Holocaust ever occurred, regional newspaper the Oaklawn Patch reported on Wednesday.

“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Arthur Jones, 64, was quoted by the Patch as saying. Jones, an insurance salesman from Lyons, Illinois, is a Republican candidate seeking to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

According to the regional newspaper, Jones referred to the Holocaust as “the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV. The more survivors, the more lies that are told.”

Jones also organizes neo-Nazi events commemorating Adolf Hitler’s birthday, according to the Patch.

The district which Jones hopes to represent comprises parts of Chicago’s south side and and a number of the city’s southern suburbs. He has previously made two losing congressional runs.

Jones was quoted by the Patch as saying that he hopes to unseat Lipinski because of what he describes as the Democratic congressman’s strange affiliation to the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC.

“[AIPAC] was bragging on their website how [Lipinski] is ‘spearheading’ the effort in the House of Representatives with a Jewish congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf,” Jones said. “The two are spearheading an effort in the House to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III.” While Jones said Wolf was Jewish, he is Presbyterian.

“I’m the only guy in the state of Illinois against the Israeli lobby,” Jones said in a radio interview, according to CBS.

The CBS report added that despite collecting over 1,000 signatures to be put on the ballot, the Illinois Republican party has refused to do so because of his views.

“I didn’t know believing in the Holocaust became a requirement for public office,” CBS quoted Jones as saying.

And that is why so many Jews are Democrats. This rhetoric was once common on the Republican side of the aisle and unheard of on the Democrat side. Times have changed; now we’re surrounded by it.

Oliver Stone’s Son Converts To Islam In Iran

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Sean Stone, the son of acclaimed film director Oliver Stone converted to Islam in Iran on Tuesday in a ceremony in the city of Isfahan.

Stone, a filmmaker like his Oscar-winning father, told AFP that “the conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets.”

The 27-year-old, whose father is Jewish and whose mother is Christian is in Iran filming a documentary.

Iranian media reported that Stone converted to Shi’ite Islam and has changed his first name to Ali.

According to the Tehran Times, Stone traveled to Iran in September to search for locations on a film he was shooting on the poet Rumi and Persian mysticism. The Times quoted Stone as saying that he needed to study Persian culture in order to get a feeling for its rituals and traditions.

Earlier this month, Stone was a participant in the Hollywoodism and Cinema conference in Tehran, where he was honored by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Sean’s father Oliver ruffled feathers in July 2010 when he gave an interview to Britain’s Sunday Times in which he downplayed the Holocaust, defended Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and complained about Jewish influence in the United States.

He told the newspaper that “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 million.” He discussed what he called “Jewish domination of the media,” and said Israel had “f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”

So let’s assume he’s not gay.

February Tomfoolery

As I think “March Madness” is protected (and it’s not March), who’s up for the Hebrew-Hating Invitational?

Aggie and kicked this around yesterday. Basically, it’s like your office betting pool. Sixteen nations (or groups of nations) of Europe square off to see who hates Jews the most—may the vilest country win!

snapshot-2012-02-09-19-28-48.jpg

DO NOT VOTE YET!!! This is a preliminary list, subject to discussion and alteration.

Countries are divided randomly into four groups, but their ranking within each group is determined from most to least antisemitic. Hence, Germany & Austria, Britain, Turkey, and the countries of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, and Denmark) are the “top seeds”, the countries I have (tentatively) determined are the most antisemitic. France, Russia, Poland, and Ex-SSRs are the next tier, and so on.

In the first round, number one seeds are paired against number four seeds: eg. Germany v Switzerland and Britain v Ireland. Although it’s not impossible for a four to beat a one, it will be a challenge. But the real battles are the twos versus the threes. Stand back!

A word on the contestants. I grouped some countries so they stood a fighting chance. The PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain—sometimes Ireland: PIIGS) wouldn’t stand a chance on their own; they wouldn’t even make the final 16. But as PIGS they at least have earned a spot. Other groupings were for social and historical reasons (Germany & Austria, Scandinavia, for example). Ex-SSR denotes any country once part of the Soviet Union; Iron Curtain any country of Eastern Europe that was not an SSR—and not Poland, which stands alone. Make your case for adjustments, but we need 16 contestants to play the game.

On what criteria to judge? Oh boy, I don’t know! History, current attitude toward resident Jews, current attitude toward toward Israel, suck-uppiness toward resident Moslems, suck-uppiness toward the Arab world, leftist antisemitism. You name it: whatever spells bad news for the Jews. I suppose Aggie and I get the last word, but your votes count!

DO NOT VOTE YET!!! We’ll start the contest on Monday (traffic is light here on the weekends). In the meantime, let’s tweak and let’s talk. Hundreds of millions of people, dead and alive, are counting on us.
