And the palestinian wonder why the US isn't more on their side!
Well, with shit like that being spewed on Palestinian Authority TV, it's actually amazing that the west is caring for the palestinians at all. The following are excerpts from a Friday sermon on Palestinian Authority TV. The preacher is Sheik Ibrahim Mudeiris. PA TV aired this sermon on May 13, 2005 Ibrahim Mudeiris: Allah has tormented us with "the people most hostile to the believers" – the Jews. "Thou shalt find that the people most hostile to the believers to be the Jews and the polytheists." Allah warned His beloved Prophet Muhammad about the Jews, who had killed their prophets, forged their Torah, and sowed corruption throughout their history. With the establishment of the state of Israel, the entire Islamic nation was lost, because Israel is a cancer spreading through the body of the Islamic nation, and because the Jews are a virus resembling AIDS, from which the entire world suffers. Jews = AIDS. Got it! You will find that the Jews were behind all the civil strife in this world. The Jews are behind the suffering of the nations. All the civil strife in the world? All of it? Damn, they sure keep busy, huh? Ask Britain what it did to the Jews in the early sixth century. What did they do to the Jews? They expelled them, tortured them, and prevented them from entering Britain for more than 300 years. All this was because of what the Jews did in Britain. Ask France what it did to the Jews. They tortured them, expelled them, and burned their Talmud, because of the civil strife the Jews wanted to spark in France, in the days of Louis XIX. Ask Portugal what it did to the Jews. Ask Czarists Russia, which welcomed the Jews, who plotted to kill the Czar - so he massacred them. But don't ask Germany what it did to the Jews. It was the Jews who provoked Nazism to wage war against the entire world, when the Jews, using the Zionist movement, got other countries to wage an economic war on Germany and to boycott German merchandise. They provoked Russia, Britain, France, and Italy. This enraged the Germans toward the Jews, leading to the events of those days, which the Jews commemorating today. Ahh, so it's the Jews' fault that the Nazis persecuted them, killed them and burned them alive? Sheik Mudeiris, I salute you, you are such a fountain of knoweldge. We have ruled the world before, and by Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again. The day will come when we will rule America. The day will come when we will rule Britain and the entire world – except for the Jews. The Jews will not enjoy a life of tranquility under our rule, because they are treacherous by nature, as they have been throughout history. The day will come when everything will be relieved of the Jews - even the stones and trees which were harmed by them. Listen to the Prophet Muhammad, who tells you about the evil end that awaits Jews. The stones and trees will want the Muslims to finish off every Jew. Now, can someone explain to me, after a jewish or an american or british person hears or reads this, why would they ever chose to be on the side of the palestinians, arabs or muslims? Shit, if i was a Jew and heard this and saw that it's a popular sentiment, i would be wondering why my leaders would be negotiating with the palestinians at all, instead of just killing those who want me dead first? I would also wonder, if that's not the popular sentiment amongst palestinians and if he is a radical as some people would argue or defend, then why are they allowing him airtime-let alone the friday sermon- on the PA channel and why haven't any moderate palestinians or muslims objected or voiced any sort of outcry against his "radical" statements? If i was in his place I would logically have to conclude that this is the popular sentiment in the palestinian and islamic society , that they are a threat to my own survival and livelihood and that any negotiation that might give them autonomy, independence or more funding would be the equivelant of virtual suicide. Wouldn't you think so if you were in his shoes? Look, we as arabs/ muslims/ whatever can't just play the victim, decry that we are opressed and persecuted, and yet be OK with venemous hate like this be spewed and spread throughout our society. We can't chant "Death to America" on one hand and wonder why they won't be more on our side. While the jews were holding out vigils, and stating that " we are all americans today", The Palestinians danced on the streets and handed out sweets and baklawas when 9/11 happend, and then they openly wonderd why the US was on the side of Israel. LOL. If you, dear reader, are one of those people, let me tell you the story of my friend Irina. My friend Irina- russian jewish US immigrant and current US customs agent- was all about the peace process and giving the palestinians equal rights with the rest of her family when a suicidebomber blew himself up in 2002 and killed her cousin, who was a peace activist. Since that Day her and her whole Labour -voting family turned against the palestinian peace process and became overnight Likud supporters, because- as she told me- they realized that day "that the palestinians don't differentiate between pro- and anti-peace jews; they are all jews to them and therefore they should all die." She used to get really upset and cry whenever she would hear about palestinian houses getting demolished or palestinian bystanders dying or getting injured in crossfire, and now, when she hears about stuff like that, she says that the one thing that crosses her mind is "better them then one of my family". Look, until we abandon hate-filled rhetoric against americans and jews, we can't complain about american and jewish hate-filled rhetoric against us. Until the palestinians stop all suicide-bombings and attacks inside Israel and against israelis, they can't complain about the Wall Israel is building to protect itself and how it's keeping them out. Until we abandon ideas such as destroying the state of Israel , taking back palestine and driving all the jews out, we can't complain that the US is giving Israel more military aid and is not faulting them for owning nuclear weapons. And until people like that Sheik are no longer representing popular arab/muslim/palestinian sentiment, we can't point fingers and accuse the jews of not wanting peace, cause-let's be honest here- we don't want it either! But if we don't want peace, then we want war, and it's a war that we know we can't win. So why the trash-talking when we can't do the walking? What's the point? We have to chose right now and chose wisely, because whatever we decide now will shape the future of our children and the next generations: We are either for peace and understanding, or we are for hate and war. There is no third choice, and our time is running out!
