Swine Flu – Jewish Conspiracy

Unlike the Split Enz song history actually does repeat.

In times past Jews were blamed for all sorts of things like the Plague, poisoning wells, and all sorts of other perfidy including being sub-human.

Now the Muslim and Arab media are manipulating the swine flu epidemic to demonize Israel and its leaders.

Anti-Semitic Cartoon from QatarThe Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which monitors global anti-Semitism, accused large-circulation daily newspapers such as Al Watan in Qatar and Al-Quds al-Arabi in the UK of “exploiting” the epidemic to provoke anti-Israel and anti-Semitic attitudes.

An Al Watan cartoon cited by the ADL had a caption saying: “The World Health Organization is warning about a world-wide epidemic – the swine flu,” and showed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with a pig snout.

“One theme of the anti-Israel cartoons related to the swine flu is ironically picturing Israeli leaders with faces of pigs, reflecting the disdain for the pig in Islamic culture,” the ADL said in a press release issued Monday.

“Once again, the Arab press is not just content with reporting the news of a serious and potentially deadly global epidemic,” said ADL National Director Abraham Foxman. “They are exploiting the swine flu epidemic in an effort to rile up anti-Israel and anti-Jewish sentiment in the Arab street. And they are using the most powerful tool in their arsenal – the visual, the cartoon – to incite hatred for the Jewish state and its people.”

This is despicable, but I fully expect some leftist c**t to come on here and explain it is because of some injustice by Israel that causes this sort of disgusting anti-semitic behaviour. You know someone like Bomber or Tim Selwyn.

 

Saudis flexing muscles now limp-dick in Whitehouse

from JihadWatch

The Saudis seem to know what is what when it comes to Obama. their welcome message to the new President was actually a veiled threat;

“If the U.S. wants to continue playing a leadership role in the Middle East and keep its strategic alliances intact — especially its ‘special relationship’ with Saudi Arabia — it will have to drastically revise its policies vis-a-vis Israel and Palestine.”

“Unless the new U.S. administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the U.S.-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk,””

and just in case there might be a little misunderstanding about the psturing he goes on to intimate that, upon the promptings of Iran, Saudi Arabia will;

“lead a jihad, or holy war, against Israel.”

Let there be no mistake, the Muslim nations want the destruction of Israel and will use the preceived timidity of Obama as a lever to extract it.

Add to that increased domestic tensions in Pakistan and we most surely are looking at a major MidEast/West confrontation. With the UN firmly under the spell of Jihadi influences then the prospects for Israel seem dull.

Israel decides to ceasefire but only if Hamas does too

The Israeli cabinet voted this morning (NZ time) to halt the offensive that has dealt a stinging blow to the Islamic militants of Hamas for the time being.

In announcing the unilateral cease-fire, Israeli Premier Ehud Olmert said in a televised address that Israel had achieved its goals, and more: “Hamas was hit hard, in its military arms and in its government institutions,” Olmert said.

Fighting will stop at 2 a.m. local time (midnight GMT), but Israel will keep troops on the ground for the time being, Olmert said. If Hamas holds its fire, the military “will weigh pulling out of Gaza at a time that befits us.” If not, Olmert said, Israel “will continue to act to defend our residents.”

Got that, if Hamas holds their fire then so will the Israelis. If the fire holds for a reasonable period then Israel will withdraw. If not then they will contiue on with the onslaught.

My prediction is Hamas will not ceasefire and will continue with the rocket attacks.

Ban: Death toll in Gaza 'unbearable'

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon is in Israel and has said that “death toll in Gaza had reached an unbearable point”.

Strange, isn’t it? The UN said and did virtually nothing about the genocide in Rwanda, the same in Darfur, but for their darling Pally buddies, a few hundred deaths of Hamas terrorists and their supporters is ‘unbearable’?

The UN and the other apologists for Islamic terrorist group clearly have a very distorted reality. Bear in mind that Hamas has been at war with Israel for decades and still has as its stated aim to clear Palestine from the Jordan to the sea of the Jew.

The Israeli’s will never give in because to give in will be to die.

i suppose it was nice of him to mention that Israel’s citizens have the right to live without fear of rockets. A million Israeli citizens live within rocket range day and night, he told reporters, and “this too must stop permanently.” He claimed that Hamas’s use of private homes and civilian institutions was “unacceptable.”

Yeah but they won’t do anything about stopping Hamas, they never do.

CTU become Jihad-enablers

The CTU president, failed Labour candidate, Helen Kelly has joined the Jihadist cause by issuing a missive demanding all sorts of things.

  • Revoking the credentials of the Israeli Ambassador to New Zealand.
  • Cutting contacts with Israeli military and intelligence officials outside of official UN sponsored peacekeeping or observer liaison.
  • Ensuring that New Zealand does not import goods manufactured, in whole or in part, in the Occupied Territories.
  • Ensuring that the New Zealand government does not make use of Israeli products or services in its procurement provisions.
  • Taking steps to ensure that New Zealand sourced goods and services are not used by Israel to further its occupation of Palestinian lands.
  • Ending the ‘Working Holiday Scheme’ for young Israelis.
  • Attending meetings specific to, and advocate within, international organisations for the rights of the Palestinian people.

So lets get this straight, the CTU wants to boot out the Israeli Ambassador who resides in Canberra? Good one fool.

Then they want to cut ties with Israeli military and intelligence officials. I bet we don’t even have any such ties anyway so that’s a Clayton’s Demand.

The next one is a doozy, the CTU doesn’t want us to import good manufactured in whole or in part in the Occupied Territories. I’m stumped by this one because Israel doesn’t have any Occupied Territories, they gave them all back to the Pally’s who then used them to chuck rockets and mortars at Israel. If the CTU means Gaza and the West Bank then what is their aim exactly? To hurt Palestinian businesses? That one clearly isn’t well thought out unless of course, being the jihadists they now are, they mean Isreal in total.

They also appear to want the trains to stop running in Auckland. Veolia, a French company provides extensive transport operations in Israel. So that would definately qualify as “used by Israel to further its occupation of Palestinian Lands”. Quite apart from the fact that never has been, ever, such a thing as “palestinian lands”. I wonder what the EPMU thinks of the CTU trying to stop their workers from working?

This is the best one though, Helen Kelly, a failed Labour candidate wants to kick in the guts a woking holiday scheme that Labour put in place. Bwahahahahahahaha

Oh and they want to sit around in meetings an jaw on about peace. How about the CTU issue a press release calling on the jihadists of Hamas to stop attacking Israel. It really is as simple as that. Stop launching bombs and missiles and mortars and instead start talking and I think we would find the war comes to a crunching end.

Obama's honeymoon already over

Power Line – The Honeymoon: Still Over!

In The Honeymoon: Over Before It Began!, I noted that Islamic protesters in Indonesia were blaming Barack Obama for Israel’s attack on Gaza even though he hasn’t yet been inaugurated. This calls into question, as I put it in that post, liberals’ “touching faith that the election of Barack Obama will cause America to be better loved by people around the world, including those who are ideologically hostile to the United States.”

Here’s more evidence that the honeymoon is already over, this time from Iran. Note that Obama says he wants to change our relationship with Iran by treating it with more “respect.” Here, demonstrators in Tehran walk on a poster of Obama:

The great black hope of the liberal “progressives” will prove to be a massive failure. Already Islamist protesters the world over are burning Obama in effigy. Obama himself thinks that opeing dialogue with terrorists will be helpful. I have news for him, it will only be useful if those terrorists are sitting in chains as we interrogate them. As John at Powerline comments “The point, of course, is that if anyone thinks that electing Obama as President will cause us to be loved by our enemies, just because he isn’t George Bush, that person is doomed to disappointment.”

Hamas leaders cower in hospital bunker behind human shields

Sources: Hamas leaders hiding in basement of Israel-built hospital in Gaza – Haaretz – Israel News

Senior Hamas officials in Gaza are hiding out in a “bunker” built by Israel, intelligence officials suspect: Many are believed to be in the basements of the Shifa Hospital complex in Gaza City, which was refurbished during Israel’s occupation of the Gaza Strip.

The tough guy leaders of Hamas are cowering behind the skirts of women and the injured in the basement bunker at Shifa Hospital in Gaza.

Heard that name before? Of course you have it is the hospital where the Pallywood special movie of fake CPR was filmed. Turns out that the same hospital is the main base of Hamas, knowing the Israelis won’t bomb it.

Hamas raids aid trucks and sells supplies

Hamas raids aid trucks, sells supplies | Confronting Hamas | Jerusalem Post

Let there be no mistake that Israel fights against the lowest of the low, folk who would attack aid trucks, make off with the supplies and then sell them to the highest bidder. These are the people that Keith Locke, Bomber Bradbury and Malcolm…..uh…Idiot/Savant would have us cuddle up to. They want us to be falling over ourselves to cuddle Hamas while Ham-ass steals from their own citizens.

For some reason that escapes me the leftist Jihad-enablers seem to think that it is Israel that is in the wrong.

The Big Fakery

Much has been made in the Jihad-enabler part of the blogosphere about Israel moving people from one building to another then bombing them on purpose. Sounds terrible doesn’t it? Except if Israel were the ethnic cleansing, genocidal maniacs that Bomber et al portray them as then why bother shuttling people around simply to kill them, why not just shoot them where they are;

Hugh Fitzgerald at JihadWatch explores all the “independent” commentators, UN spokemen etc that are lined up to put a fake face on the situation in Gaza;

What we are observing is La Grande Montatura, the Big Fakery, Fakery of every sort being “mounted” in Gaza by Hamas, and aided and abetted by those Westerners who have a long record of being viciously anti-Israel. These include Mads Gilbert and another Norwegian doctor, both of whom have been on record as approving of the 9/11/2001 bombings, and have been tireless workers in the vineyard of the most extreme left-wing, and now nicely antisemitic, groups. And CNN and the egregious BBC do not tell listeners about what they are on record as having said, what their background is.

Nor do they tell us about the kind of people, the non-Arabs that is, who are involved. And almost everyone in place is an Arab working for any U.N. connected organization in Gaza, but you would hardly know this from the solemn interviews with John Ging and suchlike, who provide a facade, for the uninformed, of presumed, but in truth utterly phony, “objectivity.” Why, just a few days ago, at 9:10 a.m., on the BBC, there were broadcast the most transparently absurd charges — such as that the Israelis “deliberately” coaxed innocent civilians out of their apartments, and then “deliberately” placed them in a single building, and then “deliberately” shelled that building. Yes, how true, we have 60 years of familiarity with how the Israelis conduct war, and how they treat Arab prisoners, and of course this corresponds — doesn’t it? — to everything they have ever done. And of course we also have 60 years of noting what the Arabs do when they make war on the Jews of Israel, and the scrupulosity with which they try always to avoid causing harm to civilians, and the way they treat any Israeli, soldier or civilian, whom they take prisoner. In all this they are truly a model for how to behave, as the U.N. will be the first to tell you.

Then there is the farce over the “bombing” of the school;

Well, let’s start with the “school” business. It is as irrelevant that the building is used for a school as it is that Lee Harvey Oswald fired on Kennedy from the Texas Book Depository. What counts is that the building was not being used as a school at the time. That’s one. The second is that the Israelis did not “attack the school.” They fired near the school, at those who had fired at them. This caused secondary explosions, I gather, from within the school, and what could explain that other than the storing of weapons? And we should further note that we have been told that “women and children” were “among” the victims, but just as we were told that there were 40 dead and then, later, 30 dead, we still don’t know.

How about the United Nations, i

ncreasingly shown to be hopelessly corrupted and anti-semetic;
The other morning I listened to the BBC speaker, voice dripping with hostility and sarcasm whenever he interviewed someone willing to offer the Israeli view, deeply respectful when someone came on, with the “U.N.” label attached — a label that means, at this point, not merely not a guarantee of objectivity, but almost certainly a guarantee of the reverse: of complete bias, hiding behind the camouflage of those initials “U” and “N.” The BBC was featuring someone connected to the U.N., to some human rights part of it (it hardly matters what phony succursale it was), speaking of how the Israelis had done this, or done that, cold-bloodedly ordered people out of their apartments, and then into another building, only to then shell that building. Now a moment’s thought tells anyone, or should, just what an absurd charge this is. For if the Israelis were cold-blooded killers, they wouldn’t bother moving people from one place to another, apparently unharmed, but would just kill them where they were. And if the Israelis were cold-blooded killers, then why would they spend such an enormous effort phoning up every individual phone in Gaza? And no one denies that they have done this, not even Hamas, not even the “U.N.” Nor would they have leafletted Gaza warning civilians to leave certain areas. Why, for god’s sake, the Israelis even warned members of Hamas that their apartments would be bombed. It is known, for example, that that Hamas cleric who was killed had received the warning, but had wanted to die as a “martyr” and to take his whole family with him, and even insisted that they remain (at least one family member chose not to do so).

Doesn’t that tell us all we need to know about the efforts Israel is making to minimize civilian casualties? Hasn’t Israel always done so? Doesn’t it have a long record that we can look at, to see that that is so? Conversely, do not the Arabs have a long record of staging things, of making una montatura (a most useful Italian word), of recycling corpses? See Jeffrey Goldberg’s testimony of how he saw, on previous occasions in Gaza, Hamas people unwrapping a dead child’s body, and taking it here and there, for yet another ghoulish photo op in yet another site, in order to multiply in the public’s mind the number of victims.

Yes indeed, they are nice folk those Hamas terrorists, were it not for blogs like Little Green Footballs, JihadWatch or indeed my own blog the world view of what is happening in Gaza would be formulated by the terrorists themselves or worse the United Nations.
