Some Perspective on the Helen Thomas Stoning

June 9, 2010

In 2008 Israeli Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger called for a final solution ethnic/religious cleansing of Gaza saying its inhabitants should be moved to the Sinai Desert where a state would be built for them paid for by Britain, the European Union and the United States. News report and video here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls For Religious/Ethnic Cleansing

In 2010 Helen Thomas said that Judaic people should leave land they unjustly forced Palestinians from and return to their homes in Poland, Germany the U.S. and elsewhere.

In 2008 Chief Rabbi Metzger thanked G.W. Bush for his support of “Israel” and in particular for waging an unjust war against Iraq. News report here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Thanks Bush for War On Iraq

Helen Thomas has consistently opposed the unjust, catastrophic war on Iraq.

Chief Rabbi Metzger still wields power and influence to perpetrate injustice. Helen Thomas has been fired and ostracized for standing for justice.

If we don’t stand for those who stand for justice when they’re attacked we deserve no better than this: a world enslaved by crushing rabbinic double standards and hypocrisy. I can’t imagine what encourages the rabbis more than for us to flee in cowardice as they stone our most courageous people.

Gaza Massacre Fosters Race Hatred in Israeli Youth

January 27, 2009

The lunatic culture of Judaism is nourished by violence and death. The Israelis are channeled on the path to genocide which has been written about and lamented extensively in relation to other nations but never identified as such in this most blatant example.

Anti-Arab sentiment swells among youth in aftermath of Gaza war

PATRICK MARTIN – Globe and Mail

January 26, 2009

JERUSALEM — When the leader of Israel’s religious-Zionist Meimad Party recently addressed a meeting of 800 high-school students in a Tel Aviv suburb, his words on the virtue of Israeli democracy for all its citizens were drowned out by student chants of “Death to the Arabs.”

Not since the days of the now-illegal Kach party, and Baruch Goldstein killing 29 Muslims at prayer in Hebron in 1994, has Rabbi Michael Melchior heard such anti-Arab sentiment.

But that sentiment is swelling, and the controversial former cabinet minister Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party are riding the wave. They have emerged as the biggest political winners from the recent war on Gaza. Their unequivocal anti-Arab policies have never been more popular.

It was Mr. Lieberman who led the recent campaign to have Israel’s two Arab political parties banned from next month’s Knesset election. He argued that their public criticism of Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza constituted a disloyalty to the country as a Jewish and Zionist state.

Mr. Lieberman has long argued that all Arab Israelis should be made to swear an oath of loyalty to the country and, if they don’t, they should lose their citizenship.

The country’s highest court ruled in favour of the Arab parties, but not before the Knesset’s central elections committee voted in favour of the ban. Even representatives of the mainstream Likud, Kadima and Labour parties cast ballots supporting the ban.

“The court has effectively given the Arab parties a licence to kill the state of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state,” Mr. Lieberman said, adding that his party would not give up the fight.

Besides loyalty oaths, his party wants to exchange Arab communities in Israel for Israeli settlements in the West Bank; it says that giving up any land in exchange for peace with Arab neighbours is “fundamentally flawed” and should not be pursued; and it argues that Jordan should be where Palestinians seek to create a state.

Public opinion surveys indicate that a growing number of Israelis support this approach; Yisrael Beitenu is poised to win 16 seats in the Feb. 10 vote (it currently has 11), as many seats as Labour might win.

More importantly, the party could be a coalition partner in an expected Likud government – something that would put Mr. Lieberman in a good position to promote his agenda.

“Yisrael Beitenu’s rise, with its racist agenda, is a very dangerous trend in Israeli society,” said Mohammad Darawshe, an Arab from the Israeli town of Nazereth who is co-director of the Abraham Fund, an organization that promotes co-operation among Israeli Arabs and Jews.

The anti-Arab trend is particularly strong among the young generation, Mr. Darawshe said. “In a poll conducted in May, more than 60 per cent of Jewish high-school kids say they want to control the political participation of Arabs in Israel; they’re not ready to live in the same apartment building as Arab citizens; they don’t like to hear the sound of Arabic language; and so on,” he said. This racism “has to be taken seriously and dealt with seriously,” Mr. Darawshe said, “as must separatism in the Arab community.” A growing number of Israeli Arabs want to opt out of Israeli society, including boycotting elections, he said.

“Unfortunately, [the two trends] have common agendas; they feed off each other.”

Even Foreign Minister and Kadima party leader Tzipi Livni shocked many by saying that if people don’t like what the government is doing “they can leave.”

Overall, Israel’s Arab population, while sympathetic to the plight of Gazans, is not particularly radicalized, certainly not as it was in the early days of the 2000-2004 Palestinian uprising. Yet, as Mr. Darawshe says, anti-Arab sentiment in the country has never been greater. The Lieberman party “ultimately seeks a direct clash with the Arab citizens in Israel” he said. And he worries that “there’s no serious effort to stop it.”

The 100 people at the Yisrael Beitenu rally for English-speaking voters Thursday night in Jerusalem certainly don’t want to stop it. “It’s the clarity of it that’s so appealing,” said Yona Triestman, a thirtysomething who works helping new immigrants settle in Israel. And the message certainly is straightforward. At the end of the night, Uzi Landau, a former Likud cabinet minister now running for Yisrael Beitenu, leaned forward and wagged his index finger at the audience. “There’s just one thing you have to remember about our platform,” he said, “just one thing to tell your friends: ‘No loyalty, no citizenship.'”

Benedict’s Elder Brother, Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls For Religious/Ethnic Cleansing

January 29, 2008

Last year this lunatic Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” Yona Metzger was given a platform at the Vatican to pronounce that “lack of action against [Iran] is a cardinal sin.” Benedict supported Rabbi Metzger’s edict by encouraging Christians to cooperate with “Jews” (but not Muslims) “for justice and peace in the world.” This must be the “justice and peace” he had in mind.

Rabbinic Moralizing and Warmongering from Rome

Gazans belong in Sinai, says Chief Rabbi Metzger

By Saul Sadka, Haaretz

January 28, 2008

LONDON – Gazans should be transfered to the Sinai Peninsula where a Palestinian state could be constructed for them in the desert, according to Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger, in an interview with the British weekly “The Jewish News.”

Metzger also said that while Muslims should be allowed to pray in the mosques on the Temple Mount, Muslims “have no connection to Jerusalem”, and must recognize that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. Muslims have Mecca and Medina, “you don’t need a third place.”

Metzger called for Britain, the European Union and the United States to assist in the construction of a Palestinian state in the Sinai Desert. According to Metzger, the plan would be to “take all the poor people from Gaza to move them to a wonderful new modern country with trains, buses, cars, like in Arizona. This will be a solution for the poor people – they will have a nice county, and we shall have our country and we shall live in peace.”

And note that the Rabbi proposes that the U.S., Great Britain and the European Union pay for his ethnic cleansing plan. And this, after he declares that as a “religious” figure he doesn’t make political statements! Pure rabbinic clownery.

350,000 Starving Palestinians Flood into Egypt

January 23, 2008

‘I told Gazans to come and eat’

Jan 23, 2008

Jerusalem Post

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians crossed into Egypt from Gaza on Wednesday after gunmen destroyed about two-thirds of the Gaza-Egypt border wall. Most of the Gazans returned after stocking up on food and other basic supplies that have become scarce due to the blockade imposed on the territory by Israel.

UN personnel said they estimated the number of Palestinians who entered Egypt to be 350,000.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced that he had ordered his troops to allow Palestinians to cross into Egypt because they were starving.

Speaking at the Cairo International Book fair, Mubarak told reporters that when Palestinians began breaking through the Gaza-Egypt border at Rafah by force, he told his men to let them in to buy food before escorting them out.

“I told them to let them come in and eat and buy food and then return them later as long as they were not carrying weapons,” he said, in answer to reporters’ questions.

Mubarak said his border guards originally had forced back the Gazans on Tuesday.

“But today a great number of them came back because the Palestinians in Gaza are starving due to the Israeli siege. Egyptian troops accompanied them to buy food and then allowed them to return to the Gaza Strip,” he added.

Mubarak also criticized Hamas for continuing to fire missiles into Israel, saying that it was not helping the situation. He said that he had been in contact with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and helped convince him to resume fuel shipments into Gaza.

“Although fuel was sent and electricity was back, some on the Palestinian side then fired seven missiles,” he said. “This does not help to bring quiet.”

Also Wednesday, Israel Radio reported that Egyptian police forcefully dispersed a protest held in Egypt in support of Gaza Palestinians. Police officers used tear gas on the crowd and arrested some 500 people, most of them members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Israel is worried about the chaos on the Gaza-Egypt border, and expects Egypt to solve the problem, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Wednesday, several hours after the Gazans poured into Egypt.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Arye Mekel noted that Israel has no forces on the Gaza-Egypt border. Therefore, he said, “It is the responsibility of Egypt to ensure that the border operates properly, according to the signed agreements,” he said. “We expect the Egyptians to solve the problem. Obviously we are worried about the situation. It could potentially allow anybody to enter.”

Egyptian border guards and Hamas police took no action as Palestinians hurried over the border and began returning with bags of food, boxes of cigarettes and plastic bottles of fuel.

The chaotic scenes came on the sixth day of a complete closure of Gaza, imposed by Israel and backed by Egypt, in response to a spike in Gaza rocket attacks on Israeli border towns. Hamas has orchestrated daily demonstrations on the Gaza-Egypt border, in an apparent attempt to appeal to Arab public opinion and pressure Egypt to open the passage.

On Tuesday, Israel eased the closure slightly, transferring fuel to restart Gaza’s only power plant, and also sent in some cooking gas, food and medicine. Israel has pledged to continue limited shipments because of concerns that a humanitarian crisis could develop.

Before dawn Wednesday, Palestinian gunmen began blowing holes in the border wall running along the Gaza-Egypt border. Hamas security later closed most holes, but left two open and allowed free traffic through those.

Hamas appears to be applying pressure on Egypt, which has cooperated with Israel’s sanctions by keeping the Rafah border closed. By affecting public opinion in Egypt, scenes of privation in Gaza could force Egypt to ease the border closure, allowing the Hamas regime to relieve its isolation.

An off-duty Hamas security officer who identified himself as Abdel Rahman, 29, said this was his first time out of Gaza. “I can smell the freedom,” he said. “We need no border after today.”

Mekel pledged Tuesday that the shipments would go on. “We will continue [Wednesday] and in the coming days to deliver more aid to Gaza until all promised supplies get across,” he said.

The Defense Ministry ruled late Tuesday that 250,000 liters of diesel fuel would be transferred into Gaza daily, but the crossings would remain closed to other goods and people until further notice.

Rabbinic Hygiene

December 1, 2007

These are Benedict’s elder brothers, and what they have planned can most certainly be compared to Nazism, but why draw an analogy? The rabbis are working from their own ancient tradition of race hatred disguised as “one of the world’s three great religions” which Benedict would have us believe Christianity has “sprung from.”

Rabbi: Cleanse country of Arabs

“We must cleanse the country of Arabs and resettle them in the countries where they came from,” head of the Yesha Rabbis Council, Rabbi Dov Lior, declared Monday, adding that, “If this means we have to pay them, we will. Without doing so, we will never enjoy peace in our land.”

Lior made the statement during an “emergency meeting” of the Association of Rabbis for the People of Israel and the Land of Israel held in Jerusalem ahead of the Annapolis peace conference.

“You have no cause for concern, no peace will come out of all these conferences and agreements,” Lior told the participants. The rabbi stated that although he was interested in peace, Israel could never hope to achieve peaceful relations “with evil people of this kind.” (Ynet, Kobi Nahshoni, November 27, 2007)
