The Day In Israel: Tuesday April 27th, 2010

BREAKING NEWS: Hamas claims it has morals.

Mahmoud al Zahar wart
"We have morals. And I don't have a huge ugly wart on my nose."

Senior Hamas figure Mahmoud al-Zahar on Monday condemned the animation video released by Hamas’ military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades. The propaganda video shows Noam Shalit, kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit’s father, walking the streets of Israel  in another 20 years, clutching a picture of his son, who is still in captivity.

After a meeting between Hamas parliament members and a parliamentary delegation from South Africa, Al-Zahar told reporters that the video “does not reflect Hamas’ official stance.”

The senior figure denounced the insinuation made in the video, according to which his organization might kill Shalit. “We have not killed in the past and will never kill captive Israeli soldiers,” he said, “Our morals prevent us from doing so.”

Al-Zahar emphasized that the video is “not a political or humanitarian attempt and does not reflect the faction’s position, which objects killing captured soldiers and does not allow it, in order not to justify the Israeli position vis-à-vis Palestinian and Arab prisoners.”

Tell that to Nachshon Wachsman.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)?

7:38PM: CNN interviews Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren about the growing Iranian threat.

7:22PM: Photo of the day:

Salam Fayyad
In this photo taken Monday, April 19, 2010, Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, left, gives a Palestinian man a piece of chicken as residents of Arura attempt to create the world's largest dish of Musakhan, a specialty of chicken on a bed of bread, onions and almonds in the West Bank village of Arura, near Ramallah. Fayyad has quietly changed some of the rules of the Arab-Israeli conflict with a simple credo: Palestinians cannot wait for a state to fall into their laps and have to start building it now. The U.S.-trained economist has been showered with praise by foreign leaders and dovish Israelis for doing more than any of his predecessors to set the stage for statehood. Yet he never gained much street credibility in the tribal world of Palestinian politics. The former professor is now going about changing that, by reaching out to Palestinians directly and bypassing the old political networks, including the Fatah movement of his boss, President Mahmoud Abbas.

Is it my imagination or is Fayyad feeding the elderly man from his hand?

And if so, is this to give the impression that the elderly man is so famished that he simply couldn’t wait long enough to pick up the chicken himself and eat like a civilized person?

Because if so, you should be reminded that the photo was taken during the palestinian attempt to create the world’s largest dish of Musakhan, which I would have thought is hardly the act of a starving people.

5:55PM: Israel’s Ambassador to Egypt has let the Egyptian FM know we don’t appreciate being referred to as an “enemy state.”

Israel’s Ambassador to Cairo Yitzhak Levanon has protested on behalf of the Jewish state over statements made by Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who described Israel as an “enemy state” during a visit to Lebanon.

In a press conference in Beirut on Tuesday, the Egyptian minister was asked whether the visit was intended as a warning message from Israel to Lebanon. Aboul Gheit denied and said the purpose of his trip was not to relay messages “from the enemy to a sister Arab state.”

He stressed that Egypt would stand by Syria and Lebanon should they be attacked.

The statement was featured in headlines in a line of Arab newspapers, including the London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat and al-Hayat, the Saudi al-Madina, the Kuwaiti al-Rai and more. Egyptian media chose to downplay the remarks.

As Aboul Gheit and other Egyptian ministers were out of the country, Israel’s ambassador met with head of the Israel department in the Egyptian Foreign Ministry and stressed that the Jewish state regards the affair with gravity.

Levanon expressed Jerusalem’s official protest while seeking clarifications.

Israeli state officials said that the Egyptians claimed that Aboul Gheit was misunderstood and in fact meant to say he couldn’t deliver a message from Israel to Lebanon, which Israel considers an enemy state.

It seems a little fishy that the Egyptians claim Aboul Gheit was simultaneously misunderstood and meant to say something else.

Also interesting: in this Egyptian “clarification,” it is Israel who considers Lebanon to be an enemy state – and not vice versa – even though the problematic words “”from the enemy to a sister Arab state” could conceivably support the latter explanation but not the one actually provided.

Fail!

3:25PM: Honest terrorist of the day:

A 17-year old Palestinian youth was arrested by Afula Police Monday morning after telling the security guard at the entrance that he was sent into the city “in order to kill Jews”.

The youth, a resident of the West Bank was transferred to the Shin Bet for questioning.

He arrived at the police station around 2 am, carrying a large knife in a plastic bag. The security guard and sapper standing at the entrance to the station asked him what he was doing there.

“The boy didn’t hesitate and told them he was sent to kill Jews,” Superintendant Aryeh Elkobi, who heads the station’s interrogation and intelligence department, told Ynet.

A quick search uncovered the knife, and the Palestinian was arrested.

1:20PM: Google has made its first ever acquisition in Israel – LabPixies, a developer of personalized website gadgets for Google’s personalized search page iGoogle, as well as for mobile devices.

12:02PM: Britain continues its downward slide.

The shooting in Israel of a British television series called “Palestine” is coming to a close and is expected to be broadcast soon. The series contains anti-Israel messages similar to those in a Turkish series that hit the airwaves in recent months.

Interviewed on Arutz Sheva’s Hebrew journal on Tuesday, actor Mickey Leon said he turned down a part in the series despite the professional and monetary implications, because the part was that of an Israeli army captain who was going to separate an Arab girl from her mother to use the girl as a human shield to allow soldiers to go from one end of an Arab village to another. Leon said other actors responded the same way.

He added that he tried to get the producer to remove the scene but only succeeded in getting the line “That’s Israel Defense Forces procedure” removed from the script. The producer later said the idea of the human shield came from a Gaza activist.

7:25AM: Almost two weeks ago, Canada Post and Israel Post issued the first joint stamp issue between Canada and Israel, a joint international rate commemorative stamp marking “more than 60 years of friendship and strong diplomatic relations between the two countries.”

Seething has ensued (hat tip: Bruce)

Ccanada israel stampanada had declared the issuance of a “Canada-Israel Diplomatic Relations” commemorative stamp to celebrate 60 years of relations between the two countries. This stamp will serve as a historical witness and reminder, for many future generations in the whole world, of the inhuman, unethical and immoral Canadian association with and support to the ultimate religiously racist, self-worshipping, rogue, international-law-breaking, murdering, genocidal, ecocidal, and terrorist bastard state of Israel.

Israel is established and based on the ultimate supremacist racist ideology. It is a religious ideology that has surpassed all other racist ideologies Man had ever known throughout history. Whereas German Nazism is a social ideology, and Italian Fascism is a political ideology, that can be opposed, debated and debunked, Israel’s “God’s chosen people in God’s promised land” is a supremacist ideology cloaked within a religious cover. Its opposition is labeled atheism, its debate is called blasphemy, and its debunking is claimed a sin. This ideology is, after all, a divine contract between God and Abraham signed by circumcision in the foreskin of Abraham’s penis. Jewish Israelis consider themselves God’s gift to this world. All other nations, Goyims, non-Jews, are considered animal souls incarnated in human bodies, whose sole purpose of existence is to serve the Jews. One needs only read the Old Testament, the Talmud, Jewish religious books, and Rabbinical texts and pamphlets to learn and to confirm this supremacist ideology.

Israeli Jewish religious supremacy and self-worship beliefs are reflected in their Rabbis’ teachings and statements.  This religious arrogance is expressed clearly in Rabbi Ginsburgh’s justification of the Israeli army murdering Palestinian civilians when he declared that: “Jewish blood and a goy’s (gentile’s) blood are not the same … every single cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, and is thus part of God, thus killing isn’t murder if the victim is a Gentile.” Israeli chief Rabbi Yosef Obadia described Palestinians as cockroaches that should be crushed. Such ideology is the basic fundamental teachings Judaic Yeshivot (religious schools) incorporate in their so-called religious curricula.

Unlike all other countries Israel has no acceptance or tolerance to other religions. Although supremacist Judaism is tolerated and Jews are permitted free worship in every Christian and Moslem country, even in Iran, falsely accused of being fanatic Islamic, Arab Christians and Moslems are harshly rejected, persecuted, and equally ethnically cleansed in “Jewish only Israel”. Jews were persecuted by all western Christian countries for the last two thousand years. They found refuge and acceptance only in the Middle Eastern mainly Islamic Arab countries. Yet instead of expressing any form of simple gratitude they have forcefully occupied Palestine. They are now evicting Christian and Moslem Palestinians out of their own country and especially out of their holiest city; Al-Quds (Jerusalem), and are denying them worship in their holy places during their religious holidays. Israel had destroyed hundreds of mosques and bombed and burnt many churches.

Many western Christians are deceived and are misguided by the so-called Zionist-Christianity and Judea-Christianity. These are antithetical terms, for Judaism considers Christianity its arch-enemy. Judaism considers Virgin Mary a whore, and calls Jesus Christ a pervert, Satan, and charlatan. Jews had crucified Jesus for his teachings of loving God, who loves all his creations equally without any favoritism to a specific nation.

Israel is a genocidal state. Israeli Jews like to proudly trace their history back to Moses and his commandments. An objective study of Moses’s Five Books reveals that Moses was the most genocidal figure in the history of mankind. He, himself, had broken all his ten commandments. Moses had preached many other commandments that are racist to the core in the form of laws and regulations for the favor of only Jews. He and his racist God had destroyed Egypt seven times. He had ordered his followers to utterly annihilate other nations including babies and pregnant women (Numbers 31:17). Even the homes, the crops, the farm animals of other nations were ordered killed, burnt and destroyed; “you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, but you shall utterly destroy them; the Hittite and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusites, just as the Lord your God has commanded you” (Deuteronomy 20: 16-17) Moses ordered the Israelites.

He and his God were genocidal even against their own followers; Moses’s God supposedly annihilated the Israelite tribes of Korah, Dathan and Abiram in a fiery earthquake for objecting to Moses’s leadership (Numbers 16), and Moses ordered the sons of Levi to murder their Jewish brothers, companions and neighbors (Exodus 32: 27-28). Moses had even killed his brother Aaron (Numbers 20: 23-29), who was allegedly “gathered to his people” at mount Hor.

Moses’s genocidal crimes are grotesquely documented in his five books in the Old Testament. The Israelites eventually got fed up with his genocidal frenzy that he “mysteriously”, or divinely as they claim, disappeared and no family member of this divine prophet was ever mentioned in the Jewish history since then.

Unfortunately Moses’s genocidal commandments had become so fundamental Judaic teachings that all present-day chief Rabbis of Israel are quoting them to incite and to justify Israeli genocide and holocaust of Palestinians. The Old Testaments tells us how Jewish Rabbis and so-called prophets commanded their people, in the name of their God, to annihilate non-Jews, to destroy their cities, to kill their animals, and to cut down their trees.

Today’s Israeli Jewish Rabbis are no better than their ancestors. They, too, call for the extermination of Palestinians, the destruction of their towns, the killing of their farm animals and the cutting down of their fruit trees. Israel’s former chief Rabbi, Mordechai Elyahu encouraged the Israeli army to mass murder Palestinian civilians; “even murdering a million”. The Hasidic Rabbi Manis Friedman urged the Israeli army to murder Palestinian civilians regardless of their age. He declared: “The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: destroy their holy sites, kill men, women, children, and cattle.”

Israeli Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, the head of a Yishuv in illegal colony of Yitzhar in usurped Palestinian city of Nablus in the Occupied West Bank, had published a religious book distributed to Israeli soldiers before their onslaught against Gaza December 2008. The book called “The King Torah” is based on the halachic (Jewish religious) laws for the killing of non-Jews. Shapiro wrote that “Jews have the right to kill non-Jews in just about every circumstance … If we kill a gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the (Jewish) seven commandments … there is nothing wrong with the murder.” Jewish Rabbis’ disregard to non-Jewish nationals was exposed when Israeli Rabbis and Israeli army officers were caught traffic with human body parts in Palestine and in Haiti.

Before the illegal declaration of Israel, Jewish terrorist groups such as Lehi, Irgun and Haganah had perpetrated many massacres against civilian Palestinians. These terrorist groups merged together to form the terrorist Israeli army. For the last 62 years this terrorist army had committed numerous massacres against all its Arab neighbors; Palestinians, Egyptians, Jordanians, Syrians, and Lebanese. Their murdering and assassination arms have reached far other countries such as South Africa, Sudan, Somalia, Algiers, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and lately Dubai. This so-called most moral army finds its morality in spreading terror through the use of the American most sophisticated weapons against unarmed Arab civilians especially women and children. To understand why Israel had waged so many wars throughout its short history one should know that Israel is an army with a government rather than a government with an army. Its survival depends on perpetual conflict; the real reason for Israel’s continuous rejection of all Arab peace initiatives.

Besides crimes against humanity Israel is committing daily crimes against mother earth and against the environment. Israelis keep claiming that they came to a desert and made it bloom. The reverse is true. Part of what is known as the Middle Eastern Fertile Crescent, Palestine is a very fertile land. Its fertility had been for thousands of years the target of all colonial powers. In their genocidal fever the Israelis had uprooted millions of fruit trees, especially olive trees that were cared for by Palestinians for two thousand years.

The 2007 report published by Applied Research Institute-Jerusalem documented that Israel had uprooted 1,000,000 fruit trees in the Occupied West Bank between 1967 and 1999, and an additional 1,405,658 trees from 2000-2006. The building of the Israeli apartheid wall has caused the uprooting of at least another million trees.

Israel’s use of nuclear (DU), biological, and chemical weapons during its aggression against Lebanon and Gaza had contaminated earth and rivers. The razing of fertile land, the poisoning of water wells, the destruction of farm land, and the aerial chemical spraying of Palestinian crops and trees, which are part of a deliberate plan to destroy Palestinian economy, are grave crimes against Mother Nature and against the environment.

Israel is the most anti-Semitic country. Arabs are Semites, while the majority of Israeli Jews are Khazars and Germanic. Israeli Jews are not one ethnic nation. Walking through any Israeli city one encounters highly differentiated people, who came from different countries with different backgrounds that have nothing to do with Semitic people. Judaism is a religion that is adopted by people from different parts of the world and rather than an ethnic nationality. Not all Jews are Semitic the same way that not all Moslems are Arabs and not all Christians are part of one particular race.

Since the first Zionist Congress in 1897 in Basel, Switzerland up to this very day, every Zionist leader and every Zionist Rabbi had openly called for the ethnic cleansing and forceful eviction of Palestinian Arabs from Palestine. The Zionist Koenig Memorandum encouraged Israeli army to use terror, assassination, intimidation, eviction and land confiscation among other terrorist tactics to terrorize Palestinians out of their country.

It would take large volumes to enumerate Israel’s crimes against humanity and against mother earth. With their at least 200 nuclear bombs and their aggressive posture continuously threatening to bomb their neighbors back to stone age, it is the fanatic self-worshipping Israelis, not the Iranians, who pose the greatest threat to peace in the Middle East and threat to global peace.

With such criminal history I ask descent Canadians whether they really want to associate themselves with such a terrorist state and become a terrorist-sponsoring country. I urge Canadians, specifically, and peace loving people in general, to express their disappointment in Canada’s decision to issue such a shameful postal stamp by writing/emailing to the minister responsible for Canada Post Corporation; Mr. John Baird ( [email protected] This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and to Minister of State Rob Merrifield ( [email protected] This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

Tell us how you really feel.

Notice how the author – a palestinian named Elias Akleh – does not even bother hiding his contempt for Judaism and Jews in a bid to claim he is only against Zionism.
