"Israel" "Defense" Force Kills Palestinian Woman by Poison Gas

January 3, 2011

Here is a real gassing where a real weapon and real corpse actually exists.

Female protester killed by Israeli tear gas in Bil’in

Saturday, January 1 2011|Joseph Dana

Jawaher Abu Rahmah, 36, was evacuated to the Ramallah hospital yesterday after inhaling massive amounts of tear-gas during the weekly protest in Bil’in, and died of poisoning this morning. Abu Rahmah was the sister of Bassem Abu Rahmah who was also killed during a peaceful protest in Bil’in on April 17th, 2010.

Doctors at the Ramallah hospital fought for Jawaher Abu Rahmah’s life all night at the Ramallah Hospital, but were unable to save her life. Abu Rahmah suffered from severe asphyxiation caused by tear-gas inhalation yesterday in Bil’in, and was evacuated to the Ramallah hospital unconscious. She was diagnosed as suffering from poisoning caused by the active ingredient in the tear-gas, and did not respond to treatment.

Jawaher Abu Rahmah was the sister of Bil’in activist, Bassem Abu Rahmah, who was shot dead with a high velocity tear-gas projectile during a demonstration in the village on April 17th, 2009.

"The lies were like the lies of a 7-year-old"

“… my impression was the people were making statements that indicated they never expected to be questioned,” Rachel’s father told TIME. “The lies were like the lies of a 7-year-old.” (“Israel’s Military on the Spot Over Activist’s Death,” Karl Vick, Time, Sept. 9, 2010)

“No One Judges ‘Israel'”

"Halacha hi beyoduah she’Eisav soneh l’Yaakov"

June 8, 2010

“No matter what we do, everybody is against us.”

“If we put our weapons down, everyone will kill us.”

International condemnation has deepened the [Israeli] public’s siege mentality, leading many demonstrators to claim that anti-Semitism best explained the world’s motives … Such convictions were understandable in light of the aggressive propaganda campaign the Israeli Defense Forces and Israeli Foreign Ministry have waged … Mondoweiss: Pro-IDF, Anti-Turkish Rally in Tel Aviv (or a Glimpse Into Collective Israeli Derangement)

Who will acknowledge the fact that paranoia-inducing IDF and Israeli Foreign Ministry propaganda is only a “secular” adaptation of the teaching of Judaism so fundamental that it is equated with the physical laws of nature: ‘Eisav’ soneh l’Yaakov’?

"No One Judges ‘Israel’"

June 2, 2010

Counterfeit Israel: “No one judges us.”

Noahide U.S.: “No one judges them.”

After a marathon session, 15 members of the U.N. Security Council agreed early Tuesday morning on a presidential statement on the [May 31, 2010 IDF attack on a Gaza-bound humanitarian ship in international waters], but the final product was far less than Islamic nations had sought.

Led by Turkey, the tougher measure would have condemned the incident “in the strongest terms” and called for “an independent international investigation.” After about 13 hours, the wording of the U.N. statement doesn’t mention Israel by name and allows Israel to conduct its own probe.

In his remarks to reporters Tuesday morning, the deputy U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Alejandro Wolff, insisted the U.S. was comfortable with Israel conducting its own investigation.

“We are convinced and support an Israeli investigation as I called for in my statement earlier and have every confidence that Israel can conduct a credible and impartial, transparent, prompt investigation internally,” Wolff told reporters, according to the official transcript. (“Obama administration seeks a fine line after Israel’s raid of Gaza flotilla turns deadly,” L.A. Times, June 1, 2010)

Exceptionalism and double-standards are not Zionist exclusives. It’s not accurate to posit distinctions between Zionism and Judaism on these grounds. Judaism is fundamentally a two-tiered system of double-standards. This is the root of the injustice of “the ‘Jewish’ state.” What the world correctly identifies as hypocrisy in Israeli behavior is “justice” to the mind which has been infected by the ideology of Judaism which teaches that, ideally, it is the world’s authority and that it (and no one else) governs itself according to the preferential laws of Judaism and everyone else according to lower-tier “Noahide laws.” Judaism (tribe of Judah-ism) at its most fundamental level is advantage for the tribe, counterfeit Judah, and disadvantage for everyone else. There is no universal application of universal standards in Judaism.

Pharisee Tzvee

March 16, 2010

A rabbi, Tzvee Zahavy, who operates under the guise of a scholar, has written a comment on a text thought to be a lost section of St. John Chrysostom’s Homilies on the Jews:


Christian Anti-Semitism Goes Back a Long Way

Kevin at biblicalia has posted the Ending of Second Oration Against the Jews: Roger Pearse [weblog HERE] has posted and released to public domain a translation of the until recently missing ending of the Second Oration Against the Jews by St John Chrysostom [HERE].”

The text from the “Silver[sic] Tongued” orator (died 407 CE) contains such gems as, “Now then, let me strip down for the fight against the Jews themselves, so that the victory may be more glorious—so that you will learn that they are abominable and lawless and murderous and enemies of God. For there is no evidence of wickedness I can proclaim that is equal to this.”

We can only reiterate that scholarship aside, it is always hurtful for us to revisit how far back Christian antisemitism goes and what grave and unfathomable damage it has done to our ancestors.

What Rabbi Zahavy (evident in his censorship tactics) does not want discussed is the fact that the great sages of his religion, rabbinic Judaism, have taught hatred that has no parallel in the Christian canon and that many of these teachings originate centuries before the golden-tongued Church Doctor, St. John Chrysostom, when Christians were a fledgling minority persecuted by the synagogues. The great Rabbi Zahavy is well aware of the genocidal, racial-supremacist dictums of the great sage of rabbinic Judaism, Shimon ben Yohai, the Birkat ha-Minim and other hateful teachings of the rabbis which date to the 1st century A.D. But he doesn’t want the am-haaretz discussing those those things because they interfere with the illusion he attempts to create of rabbinic Judaism as blameless, ultimate good and opposition to it as ultimate evil and insanity.

It seems to me that if Rabbi Zahavy is due sympathy for hurt caused by the writings of St. John Chrysostom which he suggests he experiences as he plays golf, writes, forms young minds at prestigious American universities and relaxes in the comfort of his New Jersey abode, then the Palestinians of Gaza are due at least as much sympathy for the hurt they experience as their homes are destroyed and their family members are killed by Israeli soldiers ever more informed by the hateful teachings of the sages of Rabbi Zahavy’s religion, rabbinic Judaism.

Isn’t there a double standard at work here? Can it be that rabbinic Judaism is not an enlightened tradition; that it cannot withstand the same scrutiny commonly meted out to Christianity and Islam? Is that why the rabbi expects that his criticism of Christianity stand unchallenged? I have taken the time to study the matter and I believe the answer is yes.

It takes a special kind of Pharisaic chutzpah for a representative of the hateful religion of rabbinic Judaism to smugly attack the Christian Fathers as hateful, but Rabbi Zahavy has it, and he seems able to persuade others to go his way, and I doubt it is by means of reason. But this will change, and indeed, it is changing. The internet is not Rabbi Zahavy’s classroom.

Hypocrite!

Soldier sent to detention for cooking on Shabbat after cat ate his meal

Kfir brigade soldier about to eat Shabbat meal finds out a cat has ‘tasted’ their meal. Soldier offers to cook new meal, gets caught, sentenced to 20 days in detention for violating IDF rules

A combat soldier from the Nahshon battalion was sentenced to 20 days in detention, after he found out a stray cat “tasted” his Shabbat meal and decided to cook a new meal, despite IDF’s strict orders that forbid cooking on the holy day.

Last weekend, the soldier and his friends, who serve with the Kfir division, entered the base’s dining room, and intended to eat from a pot of cholent (meat stew) that was cooked according to the Shabbat regulations.

However, before they managed to dig in, the soldiers were surprised to discover that a cat ate out of the pot. The soldier, who refused to eat from the tainted pot, offered instead to make a light meal for him and his friends.

As his luck would have it, during the meal preparations, one of the kitchen’s staff arrived and instructed the soldier to stop cooking immediately.

Details of the incident were handed over to the battalion commander, who decided to put the soldier on trial and sentenced him to 20 days in detention for violating IDF orders.

“There are clear orders about observing the Shabbat, and even if the food was inedible there are other options to get food without desecration of the Sabbath,” said IDF sources.

The soldier’s battalion friends, who expressed discontent with the harsh punishment, claimed the soldier “did not mean to disrespect anyone; he only wanted to make a meal – a symbolic punishment would have been sufficient.”

IDF’s Spokesperson office said in response: “This is a case of a soldier which was sentenced to detention due to disorderly conduct and violation of IDF rules. The soldier has been known to have disciplinary problems in the past.”

The Rise of "Israel’s" Military Rabbis

The rise of Israel’s military rabbis

September 7, 2009

Katya Adler – BBC

Military rabbis are becoming more powerful. Trained in warfare as well as religion, new army regulations mean they are now part of a military elite.

They graduate from officer’s school and operate closely with military commanders. One of their main duties is to boost soldiers’ morale and drive, even on the front line …

The military rabbis rose to prominence during Israel’s invasion of Gaza earlier this year …

Gal Einav, a non-religious soldier, said there was wall-to-wall religious rhetoric in the base, the barracks and on the battlefield.

As soon as soldiers signed for their rifles, he said, they were given a book of psalms.

And, as his company headed into Gaza, he told me, they were flanked by a civilian rabbi on one side and a military rabbi on the other.

“It felt like a religious war, like a crusade. It disturbed me. Religion and the army should be completely separate,” he said.

‘Sons of light’

But military rabbis, like Lieutenant Shmuel Kaufman, welcome the changes.

In previous wars rabbis had to stay far from the front, he says. In Gaza, they were ordered to accompany the fighters.

“Our job was to boost the fighting spirit of the soldiers. The eternal Jewish spirit from Bible times to the coming of the Messiah.”

Before his unit went into Gaza, Rabbi Kaufman said their commander told him to blow the ram’s horn: “Like (biblical) Joshua when he conquered the land of Israel. It makes the war holier.”

Rabbis handed out hundreds of religious pamphlets during the Gaza war.

When this came to light, it caused huge controversy in Israel. Some leaflets called Israeli soldiers the “sons of light” and Palestinians the “sons of darkness”.

Others compared the Palestinians to the Philistines, the bitter biblical enemy of the Jewish people.

Israel’s military has distanced itself from the publications, but they carried the army’s official stamp.

Still, army leaders insist their rabbis respect military ethics and put their private convictions aside. They say the same about the new wave of nationalist religious solders joining Israel’s fighting forces …

Some Terrorist Cells are More Equal than Others

July 26, 2009

Great. Paranoid yidden receiving training from a foreign terrorist organization with automatic weapons in the U.S. The ‘settler’ movement has come full circle, back to New York.

If these Kitat Konenut ‘Jews’ were subjected to the same standards that Judaic organizations have created for Muslims, they would be identified as terrorists, indefinitely “detained” without rights as “unlawful enemy combatants,” humiliated and tortured for years on end as talmudized lawyers, politicians and shills explained that the torture they were subject to is not really torture.

IDF Vets Train U.S. Jews to Protect Their Communities

Maayana Miskin – Arutz Sheva

July 27, 2009

(IsraelNN.com) Starting in late July, a group of Israeli combat veterans will be holding a training camp in New York to teach advanced self-defense techniques to Jews in U.S. communities. An increasing number of American Jews have expressed interest in the program following a wave of anti-Semitic incidents worldwide over the past year, organizers report.

The group calls itself Kitat Konenut New York – a reference to the “rapid response teams” active throughout Judea and Samaria. Rapid response teams in Israel, comprised of local civilians who are IDF veterans, have often been the first on the scene of terrorist attacks and other emergencies, and have prevented casualties.

It was founded in 2006 in response to a shooting attack at a Jewish center in Seattle, Washington. One woman was murdered in the attack, and several others were wounded.

The group is apolitical, and does not take part in demonstrations. “Our agenda is to protect Jews,” says group member Yonatan Stern. However, the group does have a firmly held political belief. “We believe in the constitutional right to bear arms,” Stern says. Kitat Konenut encourages all American Jews to learn how to use weapons, and to purchase their own firearms for self-defense.

Trainees learn the IDF’s unique martial arts style, known as Krav Maga, and learn to identify suspicious objects and dismantle improvised explosives. They are also trained to use a variety of both non-lethal and lethal weapons, including assault rifles and sniper rifles. Trainers review techniques to deal with situations ranging from knife fights to urban warfare.

Training this year will begin on July 31 and conclude on August 9.

No Comment From Vatican on Orthodox Union’s IDF Inciting Blood Libel

July 25, 2009

The disparity between Vatican silence on this matter and the anathemas against “the ‘Holocaust’ denying bishop” is remarkable. Where are the calls for accountability and “teshuva”? Catholic-‘Jewish’ relations operates by the ridiculous double standards of Orthodox Judaism, not the universal standards of Christianity. It’s clear that the safety of Christians in the ‘holy’ land is subservient to the maintenance of the elder brothers delusion which would have been shattered from the very beginning if the Vatican didn’t cover up another elder brother ‘indiscretion’ as this one.

Israel stops distributing booklet claiming Vatican-Hezbollah ties

By Judith Sudilovsky
Catholic News Service

Jul 24, 2009

JERUSALEM (CNS) – Booklets claiming that the Vatican helped organize tours of the Auschwitz concentration camp for Hezbollah members to teach them how to wipe out Jews were distributed to Israeli soldiers for several months before Israeli military officials suspended the distribution.

Auschwitz, in southern Poland, was a Nazi extermination center during World War II. Hezbollah is a militant Islamic group in Lebanon.

The booklet in question was received as a donation and was distributed on good faith as a gift for soldiers, the Ha’aretz English daily newspaper reported July 19.

Titled “On Both Sides of the Border,” the booklet was published by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America with the cooperation of Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliahu, according to Ha’aretz.

When attention was focused on the contents of the booklet, its distribution was suspended immediately, the Israel Defense Forces said in an official statement following the newspaper’s report.

The Israel Defense Forces did not respond to questions submitted by Catholic News Service.

The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations in Israel also declined comment. Archbishop Antonio Franco, apostolic nuncio to Israel, was out of the country and could not be reached for comment.

The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs had not received any complaints from the Vatican or the nunciature about the incident, spokesman Andy David said.

The booklet is purported to be the story of one Hezbollah fighter who had been close to Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah and who converted to Judaism. It describes Hezbollah’s supposed close relationship with the Vatican and European leaders. The booklet describes an official visit to the concentration camp led by officials from the Vatican.

“We knew (the pope) identified with Hezbollah’s struggle,” the man is quoted as saying in the booklet, Ha’aretz reported.

The booklet does not specify to which pope he is referring.

“I think everyone knows this (claim) is bogus,” David said.
