Hamas are restricting the Press despite the MSM’s Pro-Palestine bias

Hamas really are an ungrateful lot. Foreign journalists could not be more cooperative.  Already predisposed to seeing Palestine as the victim and Israel as the aggressor the articles on the conflict seem to be always biased in Hamas’s favour. When Hamas store weapons and fire rockets at Israel from inside hospitals, schools, and mosques the press dutifully report that the terrible Israelis attacked hospitals, schools, and mosques which  are not legitimate military targets.  When Hamas damages with rockets an Israeli power station  that supplies power to both Israel and Palestine, the media dutifully report that the terrible Israelis have cut off power to Palestine.

Despite this Palestine friendly coverage, Hamas is restricting the work of foreign journalists in the Gaza Strip.

In France it is now the turn of the ” Sunday people “

In France it is now the Christians’ turn to be targeted  for attacks by Islamists. This is not a new phenomenon.There is actually an Arabic Islamist slogan that says “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”In other words, first Muslims attack Jews; then when the Jews are gone, they attack Christians. We have watched it happen over and over again in the Middle East and now it is happening in Europe. Many French Jews have fled France and moved to Israel. 8000 of them left France for Israel last year which is a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe. Once they are all gone the attacks on Christians will increase to fill the void they have left.

The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant. The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty.

…Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him.

…The reaction of the French bishops was also significant. Speaking in their name, Georges Pontier, chairman of the Conference of Bishops of France…asked Muslims living in France to come to church to “share the grief of Christians.” He added that Muslims are welcome in France.

The decision to deliver a message of brotherhood is consistent with the spirit of Christianity. The wish to welcome Muslims to France but to leave completely aside that the assassins of Father Jacques Hamel acted in the name of Islam and jihad seem signs of willful blindness, severely pathological denial, and a resigned, suicidal acceptance of what is coming.

The assassins of Father Jacques Hamel are what is coming.

…Father Jacques Hamel was murdered on July 26, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.
The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. Itteaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France. But it erroneously describes Islam as a religion that brought “justice, dignity and tolerance” wherever it reigned.

Seventh-grade students spend the first month of the school year learning what Islamic civilization brought to the world in science, architecture, philosophy and wealth. A few weeks later, they have to memorize texts explaining that the Church committed countless atrocious crimes…The Holocaust is still in the curriculum, but is taught less and less; teachers who dare to speak of it face aggressive remarks from Muslim students.

…French mainstream media do their best to hide the truth. Abdel Malik Petitjean and Adel Kermiche are described as troubled and depressed young people who slipped “inexplicably” towards barbarity. Their actions are widely presented as having nothing to do with Islam.

Israel versus the World

An Olympic sized lie from a Palestinian swimmer

The fact that this Palestinian athlete had to resort to telling whopping big lies in order to try to make Israel look bad tells us a lot about Israel as a country. If Israel was actually the terrible baby eating country that the Palestinians and the left-wingers claim it is, then they wouldn’t need to resort to fiction to push their anti-Israel agenda. They would be spoilt for choice with actual true stories.

It must be hard to criticise Israel when power and water and so many other things are supplied to Palestine by Israel. How many countries do you know of that supply water and power to the enemy?

My favourite lie of all time has to be the one where they complained to the world  that Israel  had cut off their power.  In reality Hamas had sent rockets into the Israeli powerplant and had damaged it.  Despite this pertinent fact the world media ran the story about the terrible Israelis cutting power to Palestine.

The only athletes from the middle east who have a genuine complaint related to the olympics are the Israelis.

The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, at which eleven Israeli Olympic team members were taken hostage and eventually killed, along with a German police officer, by the Palestinian terrorist group Black September.

TEL AVIV – The Palestinian swimmer selected to compete in the Rio Olympics lied when she told the world that she was unable to train properly since there were no Olympic-size pools in the Palestinian territories and the Israeli “occupation” had cut off her access to such facilities.

Palestinian terrorists do it for the money

Terrorist dollars-Image conservativepapers.com

We have all read about the incitement culture inside Palestine. Young children are taught to hate Israel and Jews and are encouraged to kill from a very young age. When terrorists are killed in self-defence by Israelis they have schools and streets named after them and are honoured and celebrated inside Palestine.

There is one other thing that happens when a Palestinian terrorist kills that many of us are not aware of.   Unbelievably, the terrorist’s family is financially rewarded by the Palestinian government. This financial incentive, this payment of money, makes Palestinian terrorists assassins for hire. Not only do they believe they will receive a heavenly reward when they stab to death a 13-year-old Israeli girl inside her own bedroom, they also get a street named after them and their family is taken care of financially.

It is this terrible, evil practice that is now being targeted by the Israeli government.

Corbyn’s anti-Semitism rises

Jeremy Corbyn rinsed Ken Livingstone for his anti-Semitic comments, but went light on many others. Now, however, he is embroiled in his own anti-Semitic comments  after comparing Israel to ISIS.

Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of comparing the Israeli state to terrorist groups including Isis in a speech on combating antisemitism in the Labour Party.

The embattled Labour leader was speaking after the launch of a report by the former director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti.

“Modern antisemitism may not always be about overt violence and persecution, though there is too much of that even to this day. We must also be vigilant against subtler and invidious manifestations of this nasty ancient hatred and avoid slipping into its traps by accident or intent,” Mr Corbyn said.

“Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of Israel or the Netanyahu government than our Muslim friends are for those of various self-styled Islamic states or organisations.”

Many listeners equated Mr Corbyn’s comments with a direct comparison between the Israeli government and Isis, which calls itself the “Islamic State”.

The Afghan Taliban also styles itself as the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” and countless other Islamist terror groups are waging insurgencies to build their own states governed under a fundamentalist interpretation of Sharia law, including Boko Haram in Nigeria and al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Sam Stopp, a Labour councillor in Wembley, said Mr Corbyn had “compared Israel to Isis”, writing on Twitter: “For that alone, he should resign. I am red with fury.”

In their eagerness to protect Islam the left have abandoned the gay community

Sometimes in life you cannot hold two positions simultaneously, and the left in America are struggling with a situation that forces them to make an uncomfortable decision. In order to protect one group it has given victimhood status to, it must acknowledge that the ideology of another group that it has given victimhood status to is responsible for a massacre. Instead of standing up for gays and focusing on protecting them after the Orlando massacre, the left and some gay activists have chosen to close ranks around Islam and to stay in denial about the reality of the massacre.

Ironically, while gay journalist Milo Yiannopoulosis is told that there are not enough police to protect him from hundreds of actual Muslim death threats at a press conference, police are on the roofs of all the mosques in the same area to protect the Muslim community from violence that has not been threatened and will never eventuate.

The left will not hold Islam accountable in any way, shape or form for the massacre. They prefer to blame their favourite scapegoat and whipping boy, Christianity, despite all evidence to the contrary. Islam is at the top of their victimhood pyramid and there is no way that they are going to hold it accountable.

The Left’s abandonment of the gay community so infuriated one man that he came out of the closet publicly in order to attack some Liberal gay leaders and activists.

Jim Hoft of the widely read Gateway Pundit conservative news blog came out as gay following the Orlando terrorist attacks and immediately started throwing punches at prominent gay activists who he says, just don’t get it.

During a segment on Newsmax TV, Hoft called out gay leaders who blasted Donald Trump, saying he’s the only candidate speaking about radical Islamic terrorism, which calls for the death of gay individuals.

Boycotting the boycotters

The BDS movement wants to financially cripple Israel by banning, divesting and placing sanctions on Israel and Israeli company products.

We have our own little social justice warriors here in NZ wanting the same thing. This, apparently, will make the Israelis kowtow to them and force them out of Israel.

Well, the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has decided to implement his own BDS scheme, against the BDS movement, banning and refusing to allow New York State to procure any services or products from organisations that are part of the BDS movement against Israel.

The coldblooded terrorist attacks in Tel Aviv this week served as a chilling reminder of the summer of 2014, when a steady rain of terrorist rockets from Gaza confined the vast majority of the Israeli population to bomb shelters and protected rooms. During a visit with a bipartisan delegation that August, I was shown a miles-long Hamas tunnel built to infiltrate Israel’s southern communities and murder their residents. The tunnel was frightening because it was the manifestation of the single-minded obsession by Israel’s enemies to destroy the Jewish state. And yet, in many ways it was not nearly as frightening as continued efforts to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel.

That is why I recently signed the first executive order by a U.S. governor to help protect Israel from these pernicious efforts to punish it economically. My order ensures that no state agency or authority will engage in or promote any investment activity that would further the harmful and discriminatory BDS campaign. New York will identify institutions and companies, with the list made available to the public and updated regularly, that engage in boycotts, divestment or sanctions activity targeting Israel, either directly or through a parent or subsidiary. All state funds will then be divested from such entities.

If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

McCully needs to man up and dare to use the T word

Sorry was the hardest word for Helen Clark to ever say, and terrorism is the hardest word for Murray McCully for to utter.

In a recent video, we showed how the NZ Minister of Foreign Affairs Murray McCully refused to label the recent spate of attacks against Israelis by Palestinians as terrorism, despite being given the opportunity to do so three times. He seems to be plagued by what we might call the “Voldemort effect” – that which shall not be named.

The shooting rampage in Tel Aviv that has left 4 innocent Israelis dead, 18 hospitalised (including a four-year-old in critical condition) and many more traumatised, was perpetrated by two young Arab Palestinian men from Hebron, in the West Bank. There can hardly be a more stark example of terrorism. The victims’ crime was apparently having the temerity to embrace the famous Tel Aviv nightlife by enjoying a chocolate treat at the Max Brenner cafe. They were not “settlers”, they were not in the West Bank or other “disputed territory”, they were not soldiers at a checkpoint. The usual excuses that apologists use to justify acts of Palestinian terrorism do not apply.

NZ Herald misleads and continues anti-Israel bias

The video above shows what really happened. Four Israelis were murdered, 20 in total were shot in Tel Aviv by two Arab gunmen.

The NZ Herald has different ideas….for them the gunmen are the victims.
