THIS VALUABLE WRITE-UP COMES FROM ANOTHER SITE:
It is pathetic for the western media to be so anti-Jewish and anti-Israel. After being party to one of the two most terrible pogroms in the history of Europe [the other being against the Pagans of Europe at the hands of the fundamentalist Bible thumping Christian fanatics], the Jews at last thought they'd found peace and a land [i.e. Israel] which they could call their own. But that was not to be. Thanks to the profligacy of the British and the western world, the Arabs continued to get emboldened against this brave new world of the Israelis. The Arabs have more than 56 Islamic countries to call their own, while the Jews have only have one, namely Israel. Historically, the only two ethnic groups who have a right over the land of Greater Israel are the Phoenicians and the Jews. The Arabs have no locus standi in Israel, either moral, legal, historical or religious. The Phoenicians have ceased to exist as a separate ethnic group, so that leaves only the Jews, who are the natural heirs of the land now known as Israel. The Hindus sympathise with the predicament of the Jews, because the Hindus have faced a relentless Holocaust for the last almost 1370 years at the hands of Islam and it's adherants.
It is the heroic Jewish state of Israel which is fighting a deadly battle against the terrorists of Islam. Islam is a religion which has concepts like Jehad, Kufr and Kafir, which promote hatred and illwill between the Moslems and non-Moslems. This provides grist for the mills of the terrorists, who draw inspiration from the Koran and Hadith and such concepts like Dar-ul-Islam and Dar-ul-Harb, which are integral to these books and to Islam.
The Western has not yet woken up to the dangers from Islam, and despite 9-11, is still in deep slumber. Perhaps if Osama and his hordes nuke a few western cities, then perhaps the western world will realise the mortal dangers the entire world faces at the hands of Islamic terrorism. The suicide bombers who die in the streets of Israel are fired by the zeal of Islam and blind hatred of the "other" [kafir], in this case the Jews and the state of Israel. The Islamic world will not rest in peace until the entire world is converted to a Dar-ul-Islam from the Dar-ul-Harb of "Jahaliyya" that it is in, populated by Kafirs like us. If we do not wake up now to contain this monster now, then there is no hope for the future, and we might as well convert willingly to Islam, instead of being coerced into it some 40-50 years down the line.
Unite and fight the menace of Islamic terrorism, before it is too late. One must decide whether one wants a benign Kofi Annan as the Secretary General of the United Nations or an Osama bin Laden as the Emir [ruler] or Khalifa [Caliph, or holy ruler of Islam] of the United Nations of Islam.
All is not lost. There is still time.
This article was published in an Irish newspaper, "The Sunday Independent".
"Israel, the only democratic state in the Middle East, deserves our moral support" says Declan McCormack.
It'S open season for Jew-bashing in the West at the moment. As the Middle East's only democracy is subjected to wave after wave of vicious terrorist attacks by Palestinian gunmen and suicide bombers the pious West and the sanctimoniously 'liberal' Western media lay the blame firmly where it has always lain with the Jews.
Yes, while every other democracy in the 'free world' claims a sovereign God-given right to extirpate terrorism and to protect their innocent citizens from the evil deeds of men and women of violence, the Jewish state of Israel is supposed to take the vicious, murderous attacks on its citizens lying down and presumably apologising for its existence, for the Jewish people's history and for 'going on about' the Holocaust.
The Jews were, after all, made to be attacked, annihilated and scapegoated. First the pogrom, then the expulsion, then the name-calling. How odd of God to choose the Jews, indeed. But, of course, no-one even the rabidly pro-Palestinian Western media really approves of these attacks on ordinary Jews. No-one, that is, except the gore-glorying mobs who celebrate every blood-bedraggled mission by dancing in the little streets of the Palestinian townships.
We in the West would rather ithe ordinary Israelis who travel on buses or who attend bar-mitzvahs or eat as a family in pizza parlours weren't blown to pieces by Palestinian suicide bombers because it doesn't square with our cherished notion that the poor Palestinian freedom fighters are being savagely bullied by the US-backed fascist colonial Semitic superpower that is Israel. Little urchin catapault-wielders fighting against Merkava tanks and Hellfire missile-shooting fighter jets.
Of course, all Palestinian violence is mere retaliation. Sure, wouldn't you blow yourself up right beside a mother and her amall children if you had to queue everyday at checkpoints? Sure, we all know that Ariel Sharon is worse than Hitler. Remember the Lebanese massacres. (How could you ever forget when they're mentioned in every news reports even as the blown-to-pieces bodies of Israeli children are picked off the streets of Jerusalem.) Don't, of course, mention the 1997 suicide bomb which killed 13 Israelis in Jerusalem just after Israel had given the PLO control of Hebron. It doesn't really fit in with this schema whereby all Palestinian violence is just the understandable reaction of a downtrodden people to the gratuitous incursions and the targeted killings by Israel.
Don't mention, either, the fact that while Israel only targets > terrorists who endanger the lives of their families by using them as human shields (thus the killing of the Hamas leader's family last week, for which Israel apologised) while the lovely, generous Palestinians (as described on Liveline last Tuesday) support terrorist organisations who kill Israelis at random. But then they're only Israelis. Jews. And what are they doing in Zion, anyway. Zionists! Fascists! Colonists!
And so the West lends immoral support to the Palestinians and delivers high-minded lectures to Israel about 'how to handle terrorists without hurting anyone'. Lesson one when, eh, we haven't worked out the details yet. The Swedes are very good at giving this advice. They had a great record in the last war facilitating Nazi steel transportations. And, of course, the UN High Commissioner Mary Robinson, formerly President of neutral Ireland, has been getting up on her high nelly lecturing Israel and telling them to be respectful of minorities. Especially, one presumes, suicide bombers at bus-stops. It wasn't that long ago since Ms Robinson was emoting about how she herself was a Jew (back in August last year in South Africa, to be precise). She might just show a little consideration for the embattled and terrorised Jews of Israel now.
She might also bear in mind that someone else recently announced in public that he was a Jew. The kidnapped Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl was forced by his captors to say on video in a sick parody of the Palestinian Martyrs' final self-glorifying videos that he was a Jew and that his father was a Jew and his mother a Jew. That said, his Muslim captors slit his throat and cut off his head. Nice people.
In the ongoing Middle Eastern and potentially worldwide battle between Islam and Judaism it is sincerely to be hoped that this time out some European countries may learn the lesson of their obscene history and bring themselves to say and mean that 'in that case, I am a Jew'. They could start by giving moral support to the only democratic state in the middle east as it tries to quell a coldly calculated uprising inspired by little else except the ideology and praxis of terrorism and the undiluted anti-Semitic hatred of the toxic wing of Islam.

On Tue, 16 Apr 2002, Prof. Young wrote: "I would like to make the following suggestion. Perhaps all at Bar Ilan concerned with the reactions of their colleagues to the military response to the latest round of Palestianian terrorism should write them to remind them of the following facts: >
(1) The PLO and the Palestinian Authority, along with its chairman and the Palestinian National Council, see Israel as a "Crusader State", and thus the recent statement by Arafat, that they will destroy Israel over the next 150 years.
(2) Following from this mind-set, it should be understood that the PLO, PA, Arafat and the PNC have never accepted UN Resolution 181 (Partition), not to speak of 242 and 338, and demand the right of "return", so as to destroy the Jewish State, which they have never, and according to them, will never recognize
(3) The Oslo accords were liquidated by the actions of the PLO,PA, Arafat and the PNC in their return to terrorism as their national strategy, not only to remove Israel from what they see as Palestine, but to destroy theJewish State
(4) The Oslo accords were see by the PLO, PA, Arafat and the PNC as equivalent to the Quarayish agreement, which can be put aside at will by those Muslims who signed it.
(5) In its military response to the terrorism of the PLO, PA, Arafat and the PNC, Israel is exercising its right of self-defence under the UN Charter, equivalent to the US led operation against the Taliban and Al-Quaida
(6) Arafat, by his own actions, has destroyed the PA, and has returned to the pre-PA position of terrorist, rather than chairman, and thus must be treated accordingly.
I am sending the above to my colleagues abroad.
