PALESTINIANS, JEWS – THE REAL HISTORY

Rashida Tlaib’s Monstrous Distortion of History

BY: Aaron Kliegman

May 14, 2019

 

Rashida Tlaib is apparently proud of her ancestors encouraging Hitler, preventing Jews from escaping Nazi rule, and waging war to crush any hopes of establishing a Jewish state, arguing that, somehow, Palestinian Arabs protected the Jewish people. Either that, or the first-term Democratic congresswoman is intentionally misleading the public, or she is just wildly ignorant of Middle Eastern history. There are literally no other explanations for Tlaib’s comments to Yahoo News’s podcast “Skullduggery” last week. Vile, bizarre, and historically false, her recent remarks need to be refuted not only because of their corrosive effect on humanity’s collective intellect, but also because of their seemingly malicious intent.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors—Palestinians—who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” said Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress. “And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

So what is the problem? First, never say the Holocaust evokes a “calming feeling.” Let us examine the context for a moment. Tlaib is saying that, when she thinks of the Holocaust, she does not become saddened thinking of the slaughter of six million Jews, as most people do. Instead, she becomes calm while recalling the deeds of her Arab ancestors. It is just a bizarre thing to say.

Second, there were no Palestinians, as we understand the term today, in the Middle East in the 1930s and 1940s, just Arabs. There is a reason why, in 1947, the United Nations recommended the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in Mandatory Palestine, not a Palestinian one. No one called the Arabs living in Palestine at the time the Palestinian people, including the residents themselves, nor did anyone define them as a unique nation. In fact, Jews living there were also called Palestinians. Moreover, during World War II, Arabs across the Middle East saw themselves as part of one nationality. For example, an official German record of the meeting between Hitler and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, in Berlin in 1941 says, “The Arabs were striving for the independence and unity [emphasis mine] of Palestine, Syria, and Iraq.” Jordan could be included in that list, too. Palestinians, like Syrians and Iraqis, did not seem themselves as Palestinians or Syrians or Iraqis, but rather as Arabs, united in part by a clear goal: preventing the creation of a Jewish state on what they saw—and too many still see—in absolute terms as Arab, Muslim land. One final point: the name “Palestine” comes from the Romans, who in the second century CE crushed a Jewish revolt and renamed the area of Judea as Palestina—a reference to the Philistines, traditional enemies of the Jews—in an attempt to minimize Jewish ties to the land of Israel. In other words, the name “Palestine” has nothing to do with the Palestinian people.

KHASHOGGIMANIA AND OUR ISLAMIST COLLUDING MEDIA

KHASHOGGIMANIA AND OUR ISLAMIST COLLUDING MEDIA

After Egypt, Libya and Syria, will we stop falling for the same lies?

Daniel Greenfield

In 2014, Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post’s Tehran Bureau Chief, was arrested and spent two years in prison. Iran kept him in one of its worst prisons, he slept on a damp concrete floor, was denied medical treatment, experienced hallucinations due to sleep deprivation and was abused by his captors. His wife was told that her legs would be cut off and her husband would be thrown off a cliff if she didn’t confess.

While Jamal Khashoggi has often been misidentified as a Washington Post journalist, all he did for the radical leftist paper owned by Amazon’s CEO is write editorials promoting the Muslim Brotherhood agenda. The Muslim Brotherhood leader and former Bin Laden pal was never a journalist. The closest he came to it was acting as a terrorist propagandist in Afghanistan, glamorizing Osama bin Laden, on behalf of a man listed by the Treasury Department as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers.”

And yet the arrest and abuse of Jason Rezaian didn’t touch off a fraction of the outrage from his own paper as the possible death of Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudis. The media went through the usual formal protests, but the outrage was muted and there was no talk of sanctions. Instead, Rezaian, along with some other hostages, was illegally ransomed after two years by Obama for $400 million.

The media did not vigorously campaign to break off relations with Iran, as it now is with Saudi Arabia.

ISNA CONVENTION USES SHAME, FEAR TO STIR RADICAL AGENDA

ISNA Convention Uses Shame, Fear to Stir Radical Agenda

avatarby Steven Emerson

In a year when Muslim political candidates are breaking new ground or falling just short of doing so, it’s not surprising to see politics dominate the country’s largest annual gathering of Muslim Americans.

But the political sessions at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas were far from celebrations. Rather, they cast a dire picture for Muslims in America.

Speakers warned of “Islamophobia” as a dire threat lurking just outside their doors. And while a travel ban upheld by US courts targets people from only five Muslim-majority countries among dozens, the policy was repeatedly described as a complete “Muslim ban.”

Leading the charge was Linda Sarsour, a co-chair of the national Women’s March and founder of a political activist group called MPower Change. Sarsour spoke to at least four separate sessions during the conference, with ISNA President Azhar Azeez introducing her as “the most famous, known activist in America today.”

Her tone often was not aimed at inspiring Muslims to be more politically active, as much as it was to shame them for not doing so. If they aren’t sufficiently engaged in advocating for the Palestinian cause, she said, “you as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters. So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart.”

Worse still, “if you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor,” she said, “then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: that is not the position of the Muslim American community.”

That seems like a slap at Muslim activists who have engaged in dialogue with Zionists and Israelis, and even traveled to Israel under a program financed by the Shalom Hartman Institute. Wajahat Ali, for example, was disinvited from speaking at this weekend’s convention for failing to make the Palestinian cause his paramount issue as a Muslim.

Sarsour went on: “In fact, when you are silent, you are the one that’s not a patriot and you are the one that’s not a true American and not proud to be an American.”

TRUMP, SOCIALISM, AND THE JEWS

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

 

Trump, Socialism, and the Jews

Winston Churchill called Jews “the most formidable and the most remarkable race, which has ever appeared in the world.”  As a Jew, I am perplexed by the Jews’ remarkably irrational commitment to the Democratic Party and their formidable opposition to Donald Trump.

The old saw, “There are two types of Jews: those who believe that Judaism is about social justice and those who know Hebrew,” contains more than a kernel of truth.  By and large, orthodox Jews voted for Trump in 2016, showing superior foresight.

 

Domestically, as the Trump economic policies are producing prosperity and economic dynamism, Jews benefit just as the rest of Americans and arguably more.  Internationally, Trump has proven to be an unabashed supporter of Israel; he terminated the Iranian nuclear deal, moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, persuaded Saudi Arabia to cooperate with Israel against Iran, and broke the back of the Palestinian Authority.  He destroyed ISIS and supplied Israel with the most sophisticated weaponry in the American arsenal.  Incredibly, he has accomplished all of this in his first 18 months in office.  No American president has done for Israel so much in such a short period of time.  As a matter of record, with the exception of President Richard Nixon, no president has done for Jews and Israel so much, period.

A vast majority of American Jews remain unimpressed.  They are not motivated by concerns for Israel; they are not motivated by the interests of the United States and are eminently not practical about their own necessities.  What they all passionately care about is social justice.  Social justice, in terms of helping the sick and the poor, is deeply embedded in Judaism; for Jews, it is a case of irrational obsession.  With the emergence of the industrial revolution and massive generation of wealth, Jews took up economic inequality and embraced ideas of socialism.

The Jewish love affair with socialism which began in Russia with the fanaticism of the grandparents has been transformed into the fear of the parents and subsequently into the conviction of the children and grandchildren; it is embedded deeply in the Jewish DNA.

TRUMP – IT’S ALL ABOUT LEVERAGE

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Trump and the centers of gravity

– – L.  Scott Ligamfelter is a retired  U.S. Army colonel, combat veteran and Middle East Foreign Area Officer.  He also served in the Virginia General Assembly for 16 years.     Wednesday, June 20, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

June 25, 2018

President Donald Trump, like everyone alive today, never met Prussian military theorist Carl Von Clausewitz, but the author of “Vom Kriege” (“On War”) would have found pleasant company with the man who inspired “The Art of the Deal.” For Clausewitz, war involved politics in addition to “other means” to arrive at a “deal”; in other words to obtain the objectives of a nation at war.

For Mr. Trump, it’s about maximizing one’s leverage in obtaining the “deal,” one of his 11 tenets in the art of deal-making. And in that regard, Mr. Trump has demonstrated that he understands both the Clausewitzian concept of the “center of gravity” — the basis of an opponent’s power at the operational, strategic or political level — and the art of leveraging national power. Three examples are instructive: North Korea, Iran and ISIS.

North Korea’s center of gravity is the survival of the regime of Kim Jong-un. It’s a criminal cartel, but worse yet, one whose sidearms are a host of conventional artillery keenly aimed at South Korea and a nuclear threat recklessly pointed at the world. Which is why the president wasted no time putting “Little Rocket Man” in a very hot seat by ratcheting up the tough talk in response to Mr. Kim’s verbal threats and missile-launch intimidation.

Moreover he jettisoned the effete “strategic patience” approach of previous administrations and imposed “maximum pressure” on the Hermit Kingdom. That story is playing out now following the Singapore summit. Mr. Kim knows his regime is at stake. Mr. Trump does, too. Mr. Kim would be wise not to trifle with him.

TOTALITARIANISM IN DURHAM

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

 

Totalitarianism In Durham

Government officials attempt to “no-platform” Jordan Peterson.

Leftist city officials in Durham, N.C., are trying to censor conservative academic Jordan B. Peterson by denying him a platform for an upcoming local talk about his bestselling self-help book.

This attack on Peterson is part of a larger assault on conservatives’ free speech rights in the Trump era. Demonstrators have shut down or tried to shut down Charles Murray, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, and David Horowitz, to name a few targets. Social media companies brazenly discriminate against conservatives and the crimes of former IRS official Lois Lerner against conservative activist groups remain unprosecuted.

Peterson is a former Harvard clinical psychology professor who is scheduled to speak Sept. 10 at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), which is owned by the City of Durham. Contrary to local media reports, he was not invited to speak by DPAC: he rented the venue.

The date is part of a speaking tour to promote his acclaimed self-help book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. Durham won’t be Peterson’s first appearance in an intellectually hostile left-wing urban center in the U.S. Now a professor at the University of Toronto in Canada, he has already spoken in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, Texas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland, Ore.

Peterson’s talk on “Identity Politics and the Marxist Lie of White Privilege” at a conference held last fall in Washington, D.C., helped to bring his message to a new audience and may have played a role in his meteoric rise.

The radical office-holders in charge in Durham are terrified of Peterson, what he represents, and what he might say on their turf.
