The Day In Israel: Tuesday Mar 2nd, 2010
Hizbully Hassan Nasrallah is upset the Arab states are not doing enough to support terrorism against Israel.
Arab states should actively support Islamic resistance, as Iran and Syria do, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah said in an aggressive speech Monday.
Speaking on the occasion of Prophet Muhammad’s birthday, Nasrallah accused Israel of annexing territory and desecrating Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque, but directed most of his criticism at Arab states.
“Netanyahu convenes his government and annexes everything – the Golan, the Cave of the Patriarchs, everything. And what did the Arab world do? Nothing,” the Hezbollah leader said, while praising young Arab rioters in east Jerusalem for their sacrifices.
“The Muslim nation must assume its responsibility and not leave the resistance movements alone on the ground,” Nasrallah said. “When Syria and Iran stand by us clearly they assume their responsibility and should be thanked for that. Assist the Palestinians as Iran does and this will resolve the problem; assume your responsibility.”
Meanwhile, Mr Big Talker Tough Guy and his terror organization are getting nervous.
Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)
Fellow Aussie David Guy – who last year released a spoof Israeli Apartheid Week poster – has expanded on the idea this year, instead preparing a graphic tool “to parody the Destroy Israel Lobby’s efforts and a competition to showcase your hard work.”
Like this, for example:
Join in on the fun.
5:38PM: Yesterday, I posted about the Dubai Police Chief’s remarks regarding the intention to ban Israelis from entering the UAE in future. In particular, I highlighted these remarks.
We will not allow those who hold Israeli passports into the UAE no matter what other passport they have,” Tamim said.
He did not explain what procedures would be used to identify the Israeli visitors, except that the police will “develop skills” to recognize Israelis by “physical features and the way they speak.”
Elder of Ziyon, who spends a great deal of time auto-translating, has noticed a discrepancy between his remarks as portrayed in the mainstream media, and his remarks in Arabic.
Dubai police chief Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim said today that the UAE will “deny entry to anyone suspected of having Israeli citizenship.”
But his Arabic remarks went way beyond any English-language news agency that quoted him into naked Jew-hatred. From an Arabic interview in the Khaleej Times:
Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Commander in Chief of Dubai Police, said Israel is a rogue state, and that goes beyond international legitimacy and laws. Its leaders have sick mentalities, and they need psychologists, saying that its use of passports shows great arrogance and contempt for the world.
(Tamim said hat) the leaders of “Israel” have blood on their hands the blood of others throughout history, pointing out that the “Israeli” people are human beings like any other people who want to be loved and open to others but that the successive governments, the Governments of bloodshed and assassinations, and wars and the Governments of the occupation and aggression, are not interested in peace in the world at all.
He added that the vanity which haunts the “Israeli” mentality stems from the time of Pharaoh, and their hate comes up to this day and age.
He said that the entire world should study the mentality of the “Israeli” leaders throughout history. Their sick psyches needs to be analyzed by psychology professors, who need to examine why they launch crises, and why they brought on themselves hate from others, since the time of Moses, peace be upon him.
He said we will train our personnel in the passport of the forms and features of the Jewish people and their names, noting that no one can hide their features of Jewishness. He asked the appropriate departments to prepare nationality and residency sessions to familiarize the staff with [Jewish] forms and names, especially since most Jews hold dual passports [with Israel.]
He pointed out that the number of Jews, compared with the Europeans, is nothing, and even within Palestine itself.
No anti-Semitism here. Move along.
4:54PM: While the Dubai police chief continues to point the finger at Israel and the Mossad, Hamas reportedly has other ideas regarding who killed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
Hamas suspects the security forces of an Arab state were behind the assassination of a senior group operative in Dubai earlier this year, the Al-Quds Al-Araby daily reported on Tuesday.
Mahmoud Nasser, a member of Hamas’ political bureau, told the newspaper that slain commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was likely being tracked by agents from Jordan and Egypt prior to the January 19 killing.
Nasser said he had been given information regarding such efforts to kill Mabhouh, adding that the evidence indicated that the assassination was carried out earlier than the alleged agents had planned.
According to Nasser, Mabhouh was in possession of “dangerous” information seen as dangerous to particular Arab elements seeking to topple Islamist resistance.
Nasser oversees Hamas’ ties with Iran and worked closely with Mabhouh, sometimes referred to as his deputy. Hamas raised these accusations after a prelimary investigation immediately following the murder, and match early suspicions raised by Dubai as well.
1:26PM: Turkey want to have their kike and eat it:
Rani Rahav, public-relations agent to the stars, has a new client – Turkey.
Specifically, the man famous for representing some of Israel’s best-known names has been hired by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism after winning a tender to reinstate Turkey to favor in Israeli eyes.
Here’s a free tip from me: Lose the anti-Semitism.
12:08PM: Last Wednesday:
Hamas on Wednesday attempted to refute the exclusive published in Haaretz about Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a Hamas founder and one of its leaders in the West Bank, who also worked for Israel’s Shin Bet security service for 10 years.
Hamas parliament member Mushir a-Masri said that the article was not worthy of a response and called it Zionist propaganda against the Palestinian people.
A senior Hamas leader publicly disowned his son Monday, days after Haaretz revealed that the young man had secretly spied for Israel and helped authorities hunt down members of the Islamic militant group.
Hamas Web sites published a letter Monday by Sheikh Hassan that the militant group said was smuggled out of the Israeli prison where he is serving a six-year sentence.
In the letter, he said his family announced its “complete renunciation of the one who was once our eldest son, who is called Mosab.” The father said though he was sorry to take such, he had no choice after his son “disbelieved in God…and collaborated with our enemies.”
Just something to think about next time you hear the palestinians complain something is “Zionist propaganda.”
6:15AM: ABC News (Australia) Middle East correspondent Anne Barker talks to Lateline about the Australians caught up in the passport scandal.
Besides being stuck in the Sixties with her hairstyle, Barker is also stuck in an anti-Israel mindset. See here for example (make sure you read to the Editor’s note at the bottom).
