Genocide

The only way to stop the Muslim refugee crisis becoming our crisis is to shut the door

It is time for a pragmatic solution to what is, in reality, an unsolvable problem affecting most of the world. Daniel Greenfield who is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Centre provides a pragmatic solution. It may not make people feel good as it involves putting our country and our country’s citizens first but it is as essential as this memorable scene in Game of Thrones where Hodor gave his life, holding the door shut so that his friends could survive.

…Even without the Sunnis and Shiites competing to give each other machete haircuts every sunny morning, there would still be a permanent Muslim refugee crisis.

The vast majority of civil wars over the last ten years have taken place in Muslim countries. Muslim countries are also some of the poorest in the world. And Muslim countries also have high birth rates.

Combine violence and poverty with a population boom and you get a permanent migration crisis.

No matter what happens in Syria or Libya next year, that permanent migration crisis isn’t going away.

The Muslim world is expanding unsustainably. In the Middle East and Asia, Muslims tend to underperform their non-Muslim neighbors both educationally and economically. Oil is the only asset that gave Muslims any advantage and in the age of fracking, its value is a lot shakier than it used to be.

The Muslim world had lost its old role as the intermediary between Asia and the West. And it has no economic function in the new world except to blackmail it by spreading violence and instability.

Muslim countries with lower literacy rates, especially for women, are never going to be economic winners at any trade that doesn’t come gushing out of the ground. Nor will unstable dictatorships ever be able to provide social mobility or access to the good life…

The Muslim world has no prospects for getting any better. The Arab Spring was a Western delusion.

Growing populations divided along tribal and religious lines are competing for a limited amount of land, power and wealth. Countries without a future are set to double in size.

There are only two solutions; war or migration.

A “Judenrein” Jerusalem? New Zealand’s Shame 

A respected British commentator recently described New Zealand as “a stupid country of no other significance”. She was referencing NZ co-sponsoring UN resolution 2334, which effectively bans Jews from living in certain areas.

I am not convinced that New Zealand is a stupid country but in this matter some of our leaders are surely morally deficient.

First, some background:

Jews have been subject to expulsion and persecution for millennia. In the 1930’s and 40’s, for example, the Germans implemented a policy of Jewish expulsion. Their goal was to make Europe Judenrein* or Judenfrei – free of Jews. Jewish communities, many of which had been resident in their host countries for hundreds of years, were expelled or eliminated. I have a number of Jewish friends who lived through this dark period.

Forbidding Jews to live in a particular area was, of course, antisemitism. And it is a matter of historical record that the Judenrein policy was a step on the road to genocide. Ultimately six million Jews were murdered.

Acclaimed director Steven Spielberg admitted he was “wrong” to think as a child that anti-Semitism “was fading,” telling Harvard’s graduating class that President Barack Obama was right when he warned that “anti-Semitism is on the rise.”

Spielberg, whose 99-year-old father Arnold sat in one of the first rows at his address before the Ivy League university’s class of 2016, told the graduates Thursday that the world “is full of monsters” espousing “racism, homophobia, ethnic hatred, class hatred” and “religious hatred.”

The Genocide of the Hindus, a story you haven’t heard about

I know very little about Pakistan. I recently learned during my visit to New Zealand’s largest mosque that many Ahmadiyya Muslims have been killed there and their worldly goods stolen without repercussions but other than that I knew nothing about the country.

Pakistan was carved out of India to create a Muslim country. In 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women but in the West very few of us know about this attempted genocide.So why is it that we are so ignorant of these historical facts?

…The Israeli’s and Hindus are the largest victims of perpetual Islamic invasions and violence lasting for more than 1,000 years. Muhammad Ali Jinna, a member of the Indian National Congress and later of the All-India Muslim League (a Khilafat movement that also germinated the Palestine conflict), demanded a two-state partition, creating the Lahore Resolution, which formed the separate creation of Pakistan.

UN does not recognise genocide against Christians in the Middle East

The ACLJ has announced a seven-point plan to advance the cause of Christians persecuted by the Islamic State (ISIS.) They have urged U.N.Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon to recognize the genocide against Christians and to take decisive action and to press the relevant U.N. offices and bodies to do the same. The plan calls for…

  1. U.N. leadership to recognize the genocide against Christians;

  2. The U.N. Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide to fulfill its role as a catalyst;

  3. The U.N. Security Council to take the necessary steps to stop the genocide, including referrals for prosecution;

  4. International intervention to protect Christians as Iraq and Syria are failing to do so;

  5. U.S. authorities to aggressively urge the U.N. to take the above-described steps;

  6. Establishment of in-region safe zones for genocide victims; and

  7. A more effective international coalition to defeat ISIS militarily.

The ACLJ have previously run a successful campaign to get the Secretary of State John Kerry to recognise ISIS’s atrocities targeting Christians as genocide so they have now turned to the U.N. which so far, has not recognised the ongoing slaughter of Christians in the Middle East as genocide.

Today’s face of the day is Chloe Valdary who is a consultant for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America and a fellow at the Lawfare Project. I came across a hard hitting article she wrote about the student organisation SLP ( Students for Justice in Palestine ) and I just had to share it with you all.

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

It is deja vu all over again

I am teaching my daughter history at the moment. We have looked at the origins of WWII and are now looking at the Holocaust.

We have been studying a timeline from when Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933.

As we looked at each item and discussed it my daughter brought up the fact that some of the techniques Hitler used to destroy the Jews bit by bit were similar to those used to try to destroy Whaleoil. I am not talking about the concentration camps or genocide of course but the steps he used to turn the German people against the Jews and to render the Jews powerless to defend themselves. I had to admit that she had a point. It made me realise that these techniques were probably not invented by Hitler but in fact have been used to hurt people since the dawn of civilization.

They are perhaps the guidelines for destroying an individual or a group of people.

We actually don’t need UN permission to attack ISIS

There is a great deal of huffing and puffing from terrorist loving politicians and commentators.

They don’t want us to go deal to the ISIS terrorist scumbags and want some sort of UN mandate.

The only problem with that sort of b.s. is that we actually don;t need UN mandates, ISIS is not a country they are a band of rampaging thugs and we can deal to them any time we want with or without a UN mandate.

In the UK the same types of terrorist huggers are saying the same things.

MPs who vote tomorrow on whether to go to war with Isis will not have the security blanket of a UN Security Council resolution, so it is important to understand why, as a matter of international law, they do not need it.

They are not being invited to overthrow the regime of a sovereign state, which they wrongly decided to do in the case of Iraq in 2003, or to support a feckless reprisal bombing of Syria, which they rightly rejected last year. Isis is a group of international criminals, committing war crimes and crimes against humanity with genocidal intent, and the right – arguably the duty – to protect their victims does not depend on Russian approval in the Security Council.

Isis has been killing innocent civilians because of their religion and issuing blood-curdling incitements to kill “all non-believers”.  They have been executing without trial, recruiting children as soldiers, taking and killing hostages.  They are, in the Latin phrase used in international law, hostis humanis generis, the enemies of humankind.  As with the pirate, torturer and slave trader, no UN approval is necessary for law-abiding states to use force against such barbarity.

But our complicity in the invasion of Iraq has cast a long shadow; Ed Miliband, for example, has evinced a “preference” for a Security Council resolution.  This is unnecessary and in fact undesirable – action in humanitarian emergencies should not be vulnerable to the veto of the Chinese, or of President Putin.  A resolution was necessary for the invasion of Iraq – a sovereign state where there was no basis for humanitarian intervention. President Bush expressly excluded this justification for his (and our) war.  As for last year’s proposal to bomb Syria, it was a one-off punishment reprisal of questionable legality and doubtful purpose and it was sensibly rejected by Parliament (and people).

Is there any difference (as some MPs seem to think) in the legitimacy of bombing IS in Iraq (which has expressly invited the coalition to do so) and bombing it in Syria?  This is a pettifogging point – going to war should not depend on technicalities (the US justified the Vietnam war on the basis that it had been “invited in” by the puppet government of South Vietnam).  In any event, Syria has not complained and its consent to the attack on its most dangerous enemy can be inferred.  The real question for Parliament tomorrow is whether the attack on Isis is lawful and, if so, whether it is right.   Read more »

Auckland University goon squad defends Hamas

 

Yesterday the Auckland University goon squad were out in force  dribs and drabs protesting against Hamas..oh….I mean Israel. It did make me wonder though, as one of their chants were “Boycott genocide”. Juliet Moses confronted the rowdy teenagers and tried engage some sensible dialogue with their adult supervisor and enlighten them to a few facts about Hamas, only to be shouted down with petulant behaviour, abuse and more chanting because they didn’t like what she had to say to them. It just goes to show one thing from ‘that side’, that freedom of speech is tolerated, as long as it’s theirs.

Billy Hania the adult representing the rowdy toddlers blurted out a  delusional rant which stated that all the killing was a result of the Super Fund and other companies. It has been alleged that an Israeli chemical company that the Superannuation Fund invests in is “killing people” with white phosphorus. The trouble with that is, the IDF haven’t used it since 2009 and it is only used for smokescreens because its use as a weapon is now illegal.

Even David Shearer doesn’t know what’s going on, as is evident in his comment:

Labour defence spokesman David Shearer, who worked for the UN in some of the conflict zones where white phosphorus was allegedly used, this month called for the fund to sell its Israel Chemicals stake.

“We should be divesting from that [shareholding] immediately,” he said.

“New Zealand should not be investing in any type of munitions that can be used in the way Israel is using them at the moment.

“It is absolutely unacceptable and I think most New Zealanders would agree. I don’t believe it is right.

“There are plenty of good investments in the world without having to invest in armaments.” – source

Hamas using controlled demolitions to level neighborhoods: Media swallows hook, line and sinker

Pallywood-sign-on-the-hill-620x330

Several days ago we saw footage of an apparent Israeli airstrike bombardment leveling an entire neighborhood. Wails of “genocide” and “extermination” and “war crimes” rocked the media as everyone assumed that what they were seeing was correct, and that the commentary and reporting surrounding this event was indeed factual.

Well, it’s not. And I am about to show you why. Read more »
