"International law progresses through violations"

Two surgeons from the UK, Dr Ghassan Abu Sittah and Dr Swee Ang, summarize some of the many war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the JIZ - the morally indistinguishable coven of Jews, Israelis and Zionists - in their latest installment in an ongoing project of slaughter and mayhem, all in aid of their psychopathic extremist eliminationist racist supremacism. Note in particular the attempts to destroy the basis of civil society by attacking policemen, schools, government buildings, and the fertility of agricultural land. This provides further proof that the JIZ psychopathy is genocidal in intent. I also note the intentional destruction of archaeological evidence as part of the JIZ blueprint to eliminate any evidence of non-JIZ settlement in the area.

Note also the new JIZ plan: "International law progresses through violations". In other words, the JIZ intend to bring all of humanity down to their animal level by a constant process of getting away with worse and worse moral outrages. The 'progressives' always ready with the slur are their aiders and abettors in this dreadful, but well thought out, conspiracy to destroy international law.

Dragging International Law through the mud does seem to be one of the Parasite State's immediate goals, Xymph.
I'll post a few of the more outrageously mendacious 'gems' from The Israel Project's newsletter over the next few days.
A pack of shameless lies for every day of the genocidal attack on Gaza (perpetrated with President O'Balmy's endorsement and approval).

We're about to find out whether the Pope actually stands for anything. The way things are going on the Slur front he may yet opt for the line of least resistance by buckling under pressure and giving the Parasite State's Holocaust in Palestine the Holy Look the Other Way...

Hail Nary?

This passage from an item at Niqnaq, about an heroic IOF war criminal who cut short a genocide gloat-fest in the UK, to dash home to Occupied Palestine in case he was arrested, tickled my fancy:

The event was cancelled and the decision was made for Rapp to return to Israel out of fear of a universal jurisdiction arrest warrant for alleged war crimes. A loophole in British law allows private criminal complaints of war crimes to be lodged against military personnel, even if they are not British citizens and the alleged crimes were committed elsewhere. Pro-Palestinian groups in Britain and other countries have been trying to exploit the loophole against IDF officers and Israeli leaders. Israel is working with the British government to change the law.

Howzatt for unscrupulous disrespect for morality and the rule of law?

Hoarsewhisperer said...

Note in the above extract that a law intended to detain alleged war criminals and bring them to account is blithely dismissed as a "loophole" if the war criminal happens to be a JIZ and the war crimes are just a hobby.

Nice. As soon as someone determines that Palestine doesn't actually exist, the war crimes probe against Israel will be dropped.

ICC mulls war crimes probe

Meanwhile, the ICC prosecutor in The Hague said he would need to determine whether there was such a legal entity as a Palestinian state, a precursor to a possible probe of war crimes in Gaza.

"...the Holy Look the Other Way..."

I expect the Bishop is reluctant to sacrifice what he believes to be the truth for the sake of expediency.
What sort of example would that be to the rest of us?

The demand that the holocaust narrative not be questioned constitutes "coerced belief".
That the distortion is used to justify contemporary institutionalized murder makes the demand that he recant doubly repugnant.

Jean-Claude Pressac, who wrote books attempting to prove the official account of the holocaust, was to later repudiate the narrative, when, in a book written by Valérie Igounet called, "Histoire du négationnisme en France ...
(He) states quite simply that, when all is said and done, the official dossier on the Nazi concentration camps is "rotten". ... irremediably "rotten" and that, ... it is "bound for the rubbish bins of History"!

He draws up a veritable indictment against "memory" which has "taken precedence over history", against the distortions inspired by "resentment and vendetta", against the communists and their associations, which have set themselves up as the guardians of a false truth ...
He says: "Approximation, exaggeration, omission and lying characterise the majority of the accounts of that period".
He asks: "Can things be put back on an even keel?" and answers: "It is too late.
An overall rectification is humanly and materially impossible".

James Crow said...

Claiming to have been victims of a holocaust that never occurred whilst pursuing a holocaust of their own is as fine an example of double-speak one is likely to witness. George Bush just spent eight years dragging international "law" through the mud, isn't it okay for others to do the same?

Greg Bacon said...

Citizen Crow, you are in violation of the Holocaust™ Thought Crime Act of 1948, 1956, 1967, 1982, 1996, 2006 and 2009.

Simply asking questions about the Holocaust™ is a mandatory five year prison sentence.

Report immediately to one of our numerous Holocaust™ Re-Education Centers to get your proper punishment.

Part of your prison time will be filled being taught by West Bank Hasidic Rabbis, who will use a cast-iron bound copy of our most holy book, the Talmud, to beat some Yid into your GOY brain.

Persist in these traitorous thoughts and you entire family will be subjected to a visit from some of our MOSSAD customer service reps.

That is all!!

Hoarsewhisperer said...

Hate to rain on anyone's parade, but Jewish Occupied Palestine's Holocaust Survivors have proven themselves to be the most shameless liars, and the worst Holocaust perpetrators on the planet.
Zionist logic insinuates that observers of their bastardry towards Palestinians must accept in good faith that it's punishment for their sins against Israel and is thus their own fault.

This logic is a two-way street, so when one is yawning at images of the European Holocaust one must eventually conclude that they were found guilty of crimes as heinous as those of which Zion accuses the Palestinians.

Adam Shatz on the Blessed Obama


Barack Obama is the first American president who has made history simply by being elected. His Swahili first name – which is derived from the Arabic baraka, or spiritual wisdom – means ‘he who is blessed’, and the world seems to think he is. Obama’s victory, Bono said, is the realisation of ‘the Irish dream, the European dream, the African dream, the Israeli dream and also the Palestinian dream’. Gerry Adams turned up at the inauguration, as did Doreen Lawrence. Even those who aren’t thrilled by Obama’s agenda want a piece of him. Canadians, according to a recent survey, are ‘lukewarm’ about Obama’s desire to renegotiate Nafta to protect US jobs, and they’re not keen to send more soldiers to Kandahar, but this hasn’t diminished their love of Obama or their ‘collective Obama envy’. ‘So we are in love with the guy even though we don’t care for his ideas,’ one blogger complains. ‘What does that tell you about the cult of personality?’

Greg Bacon said...

Even as we speak, there's a movement in the House to deny any US money promised by Obama to aid Gaza recover from the Israeli war crimes.

Any bet as to who will win that battle? Can't be letting stuff like food, drinking water and medical aid to reach the Gaza Death Camp, that has been made VERBOTEN by the Zionist Regime. That would interfere with the planned Israeli extinction of Gazans, by either killing the Palestinians outright or starving them to death.

Report: Israeli navy fires on Lebanese aid ship

Ship carrying activists, 60 tons supplies to Gaza attacked by Israeli gunboats, Al-Jadeed and Al-Jazeera journalists on board say; no casualties. TV station says troops boarded ship, threatened crew

Hanan Greenberg 02.05.09

Reporters on board a cargo ship carrying activists and supplies from Lebanon to Gaza said Israeli gunboats fired on the vessel.

Reporters from Al-Jadeed and Al-Jazeera TVs said the Israeli navy fired three times on the ship. The shooting caused no casualties. The local Al-Jadeed station says Israeli troops then boarded the ship and threatened the crew.
It said the ship was surrounded by 18 Israeli gunboats demanding the crew turn back.

this is fun, first the mouthpiece (yahoo), then a closer look at some of the behind the screen mechanics.

so, the authorized version will say shit like: The Ukrainian presidency also confirmed the ship's release in a statement and said the vessel had resumed its journey to its initial destination, the Kenyan port of Mombasa, although sources close to the pirates believe that the Faina does not currently have enough fuel.

"On February 4, the ship was freed after a very difficult operation carried out by the Ukrainian special services in cooperation with foreign special services," the office of President Viktor Yushchenko said.


okay, no mention of jiz aspect, but man, what a heroic, leon uris type operation it was, whew!

however, the other source will say this:
The trail of this special freighter, which has had various names -- the Marabou, the Loverval and the Matina -- can be found in the databases of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The Ukrainian ship is registered in Belize, but the official owner, a company called Waterlux AG, is registered in Panama. But the IMO lacks even a letterbox address for Waterlux. All it has is the address of a supposed subsidiary in Ukraine called Tomex. Tomex does exist, and its offices are in an elegant building in Odessa, but no one there is willing to discuss the Faina.

All of this secretiveness would be unnecessary if the deal involving the Faina had been normal. However, the excessive caution would make sense if what Nina Karpacheva, the ombudswoman for the Ukrainian parliament, says is true. Karpacheva claims that the man behind the deal is Vadim A., a businessman from Odessa with an Israeli passport, excellent contacts within the government bureaucracy and an unsavory reputation as a juggler of businesses.

Re: TIP (The Israel Projest) memes.

The following is dated 5th Feb, 09. It's a verbatim reproduction of a January Maariv article and has been widely reproduced (and gloated about) on Zionist blogs.
It illustrates the scatology which passes for rational thought in Jewish Occupied Palestine. It also reflects the fact that their selective memory fails to even acknowledge that the Palestinians are angry because they are being lied about and demonised by the thieves who stole their land, and are now doing everything in their power to humiliate them and diminish their lives en route to expelling and/or exterminating them as a substitute for compensation.

Open letter to a citizen of Gaza 5-2-9
I Am the Soldier Who Slept In Your Home

By: Yishai G (reserve soldier)

Hello,
While the world watches the ruins in Gaza, you return to your home which remains standing. However, I am sure that it is clear to you that someone was in your home while you were away.
I am that someone.
I spent long hours imagining how you would react when you walked into your home. How you would feel when you understood that IDF soldiers had slept on your mattresses and used your blankets to keep warm.

I knew that it would make you angry and sad and that you would feel this violation of the most intimate areas of your life by those defined as your enemies, with stinging humiliation. I am convinced that you hate me with unbridled hatred, and you do not have even the tiniest desire to hear what I have to say. At the same time, it is important for me to say the following in the hope that there is even the minutest chance that you will hear me.

I spent many days in your home. You and your family’s presence was felt in every corner. I saw your family portraits on the wall, and I thought of my family. I saw your wife’s perfume bottles on the bureau, and I thought of my wife. I saw your children’s toys and their English language schoolbooks. I saw your personal computer and how you set up the modem and wireless phone next to the screen, just as I do.

I wanted you to know that despite the immense disorder you found in your house that was created during a search for explosives and tunnels (which were indeed found in other homes), we did our best to treat your possessions with respect. When I moved the computer table, I disconnected the cables and lay them down neatly on the floor, as I would do with my own computer. I even covered the computer from dust with a piece of cloth. I tried to put back the clothes that fell when we moved the closet although not the same as you would have done, but at least in such a way that nothing would get lost.

I know that the devastation, the bullet holes in your walls and the destruction of those homes near you place my descriptions in a ridiculous light. Still, I need you to understand me, us, and hope that you will channel your anger and criticism to the right places.
I decided to write you this letter specifically because I stayed in your home.
I can surmise that you are intelligent and educated and there are those in your household that are university students. Your children learn English, and you are connected to the Internet. You are not ignorant; you know what is going on around you.
Therefore, I am sure you know that Quassam rockets were launched from your neighborhood into Israeli towns and cities.

How could you see these weekly launches and not think that one day we would say “enough”?! Did you ever consider that it is perhaps wrong to launch rockets at innocent civilians trying to lead a normal life, much like you? How long did you think we would sit back without reacting?

I can hear you saying “it’s not me, it’s Hamas”. My intuition tells me you are not their most avid supporter. If you look closely at the sad reality in which your people live, and you do not try to deceive yourself or make excuses about “occupation”, you must certainly reach the conclusion that the Hamas is your real enemy.

The reality is so simple, even a seven year old can understand: Israel withdrew from the Gaza strip, removing military bases and its citizens from Gush Katif. Nonetheless, we continued to provide you with electricity, water, and goods (and this I know very well as during my reserve duty I guarded the border crossings more than once, and witnessed hundreds of trucks full of goods entering a blockade-free Gaza every day).

Despite all this, for reasons that cannot be understood and with a lack of any rational logic, Hamas launched missiles on Israeli towns. For three years we clenched our teeth and restrained ourselves. In the end, we could not take it anymore and entered the Gaza strip, into your neighborhood, in order to remove those who want to kill us. A reality that is painful but very easy to explain.

As soon as you agree with me that Hamas is your enemy and because of them, your people are miserable, you will also understand that the change must come from within. I am acutely aware of the fact that what I say is easier to write than to do, but I do not see any other way. You, who are connected to the world and concerned about your children’s education, must lead, together with your friends, a civil uprising against Hamas.

I swear to you, that if the citizens of Gaza were busy paving roads, building schools, opening factories and cultural institutions instead of dwelling in self pity, arms smuggling and nurturing a hatred to your Israeli neighbors, your homes would not be in ruins right now. If your leaders were not corrupt and motivated by hatred, your home would not have been harmed. If someone would have stood up and shouted that there is no point in launching missiles on innocent civilians, I would not have to stand in your kitchen as a soldier.

You don’t have money, you tell me? You have more than you can imagine.

Even before Hamas took control of Gaza, during the time of Yasser Arafat, millions if not billions of dollars donated by the world community to the Palestinians was used for purchasing arms or taken directly to your leaders bank accounts. Gulf States, the emirates - your brothers, your flesh and blood, are some of the richest nations in the world. If there was even a small feeling of solidarity between Arab nations, if these nations had but the smallest interest in reconstructing the Palestinian people – your situation would be very different.

You must be familiar with Singapore. The land mass there is not much larger than the Gaza strip, it is considered the second most populated country in the world. Yet, Singapore is a successful, prospering, and well managed country. Why not the same for you?

My friend, I would like to call you by name, but I will not do so publicly. I want you to know that I am 100% at peace with what my country did, what my army did, and what I did. However, I feel your pain. I am sorry for the destruction you are finding in your neighborhood at this moment. On a personal level, I did what I could to minimize the damage to your home as much as possible.

In my opinion, we have a lot more in common than you might imagine. I am a civilian, not a soldier, and in my private life I have nothing to do with the military. However, I have an obligation to leave my home, put on a uniform, and protect my family every time we are attacked. I have no desire to be in your home wearing a uniform again and I would be more than happy to sit with you as a guest on your beautiful balcony, drinking sweet tea seasoned with the sage growing in your garden.

The only person who could make that dream a reality is you. Take responsibility for yourself, your family, your people, and start to take control of your destiny. How? I do not know. Maybe there is something to be learned from the Jewish people who rose up from the most destructive human tragedy of the 20th century, and instead of sinking into self-pity, built a flourishing and prospering country. It is possible, and it is in your hands. I am ready to be there to provide a shoulder of support and help to you.

But only you can move the wheels of history.

Regards,
Yishai (Reserve Soldier)

There was a time when I felt that the future intellectual frontier lay in the fields of Revisionism; in History, Medicine, Science, and Politics.
Way before Prof. Finkelstein wrote about the Holocaust Industry I knew it was just a means to justify Israeli crimes. And if liberals and Arab intellectuals should run around trying to distance themselves from more robust 'anti-semitic' writers promoting the Protocols of Zion, I always felt that was their deficiency, not mine, and I didn't need their approval just to join their self-satisfied little club.
It therefore was a surprise to read Mark Weber of IHR saying that there was no need to continue that fight, since no one was listening anyway. Perhaps he was tired of the never ending slog, but I know I will always appreciate the work of Harry Barnes, Faurisson, and Ernst Zundel, if only because they taught us how precious feedom of thought was, and regret only that they had to wait so long to see the day when ordinary people are asking, why is it forbidden to discuss this subject?

High-Level CIA Officer: It Is Time to Re-Open the 9/11 Investigation

A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called "perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said "the evidence points at" 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job .

He also said, a couple of years ago (during the Bush administration):

There are enough discrepancies and unanswered questions in the 9/11 Commission Report that under a friendly administration, the 9/11 investigation should be re-opened.


http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2009/02/high-level-cia-officer-it-is-time-to-re.html

Since some room might be opening up at Gitmo, it's time to use rendition to spirit some of the 9/11 suspects out of their comfy multi-million dollar homes and let them try out the Gitmo accomodations.

Since some of these same traitors said waterboarding wasn't torture, then use that "kinder and gentler" way of asking questions on Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Feith, et al. to get to the bottom of the 9/11 false-flag.

But you'd better hold on to your ass if we do start getting to the bottom of 9/11.

There's one SLC in the ME that is always proclaiming how it is our only "friend" in the ME and how it is a lover of peace that ain't going to take a real investigation of 9/11 lying down and would go to any lengths, including launching another 9/11 false-flag against America to help keep the status quo in the ME.

Funny, but I can't help but to think that before Israel came into existence, the US had NO enemies in the ME.

On the subject JOP's psychopathic extremist eliminationist racist supremacists ... the reliably undeniable proof of their insanity has been on display ever since they began their reign of terror, genocide and theft in Palestine.

Entrenched paranoia over the Parasite State's eventual demographic problem(arab vs JIZ reproduction rates) caused them to adopt the most insane solution imaginable. In deciding to impose grinding poverty and unemployment on its artificially and unnecessarily acquired refugees it foolishly and predictably exacerbated and accelerated the demographic problem.

It is an accepted fact that dirt-poor people tend to reproduce at much greater rates than people in a comfy socio economic environment. Had Israel's myopic cheapskates bought land instead of stealing it, the Palestinians would have a similar standard of living to that of Jews and a greatly reduced birthrate.

If you want to make a P.E.E.R.S. Zionist foam at the mouth with rage and embarrassment at his/her/its own brainless myopia, just point this out to him/her/it.

Armed Again
Indicted Miami Beach weapons dealer Efraim Diveroli is still making millions of dollars from the U.S. government.
By Penn Bullock
Published on February 03, 2009 at 4:09pm

On March 15, 2008, a fireball shot into the midday sky over Albania's capital, Tirana. The blast echoed 100 miles away in Macedonia and Kosovo. Its force was comparable to that of a small nuclear weapon. But this wasn't atomic. It was an accident at an arms depot, where poor villagers had been hired to handle old ammunition and artillery shells. The explosion killed at least 26 people and injured hundreds. The village of Gerdec was obliterated.
Three men were arrested for mass murder in what local media dubbed "Albania's Hiroshima." Two of them were alleged accomplices to a 23-year-old Miami Beach-based arms dealer named Efraim Diveroli, who faces trial later this year on 83 counts of fraud and conspiracy for procuring Chinese-made ammo in Albania and selling it to the Pentagon.

The charges might be difficult to prove, though. A potential lead witness in the case, Kosta Trebicka, mysteriously died in September. His body was found bloodied and sprawled across a dirt road in eastern Albania, some 50 yards from his slightly dented SUV. Trebicka had recorded a tape (now available on YouTube) in which Diveroli said corruption in that country "went up... to the prime minister and his son."

Last week, Miami federal prosecutors retreated, allowing the return of $4.2 million of Diveroli's property — including a new Mercedes S550 — that had been confiscated. Perhaps even more significant, Diveroli is out on bail and a Miami Beach company he owns called Ammoworks might even now be selling ammunition to the American government. This fact has been largely overlooked by prosecutors and Congress.

Efraim Diveroli comes from a family that includes arms dealers and a celebrity holyman. An uncle, Shmuley Boteach, is a former reality-TV host on TLC, a friend of Oprah's and Michael Jackson's, and the best-selling author of Kosher Sex and Dating Secrets of the Ten Commandments.

Diveroli grew up in Miami Beach and went to work at age 16 for another uncle, Bar-Kochba Boteach, who ran an arms dealership in South Central Los Angeles.

Diveroli then moved to Miami and took a job with his dad's arms company, AEY Inc. Within a year, at age 19, he became president. Along with a childhood buddy and two-time college dropout named David Packouz (who moonlighted as a masseur), he accrued a litany of government contracts. In 2006, for instance, AEY shipped several million dollars' worth of clothing, weapons, and even firefighting equipment to government agencies, according to a website called fedspending.org.

Soon, AEY was placed on a U.S. blacklist. The firm was being investigated for "numerous violations of the Arms Export Control Act and contract fraud," according to a congressional report issued last year. In addition, it was accused of performing substandard work on at least 11 government contracts, which were ultimately withdrawn or terminated. According to the report: "Government contracting officials repeatedly warned of 'poor quality,' 'damaged goods,' 'junk' weapons, and other equipment in 'the reject category,' and they complained on several occasions that AEY was 'hurting the mission' and had 'endangered the performance' of government agencies."

Nevertheless, in January 2007, the firm won a blockbuster $300 million contract with the Defense Department to supply ammunition to Afghanistan for that nation's antiterrorism effort. AEY would provide the police and national army with the bulk of their bullets. Suddenly, the firm was the largest arms supplier to a key ally.

Diveroli found much of the ammo in Albanian arms dumps. Some of it dated back decades and came from China. Unfortunately, selling Chinese-made war material to the Pentagon is illegal because of a 1989 arms embargo. Diveroli emailed the State Department in 2007 to ask if he could ship Chinese ammo. When the reply was no, federal prosecutors charge, Diveroli removed the Chinese packaging and passed off the ammo as Hungarian.

Diveroli allegedly hired two of the men accused of mass murder at Gerdec to run the repackaging process at Tirana's Mother Teresa International Airport. The ammo, which was corroded and often unusable, was removed from sealed canisters and packaging marked "Made in China." It was then dumped into cardboard boxes and shipped to Afghanistan. Sometimes bullets spilled in transport.

Businessman Kosta Trebicka, who died in eastern Albania, was also involved in the operation. When Trebicka was fired, he blew the whistle on Diveroli and agreed to secretly record cell phone conversations.

In the tapes, Diveroli tells Trebicka to bribe one of the ammo repackagers. "Send one of your girls to fuck him," Diveroli says in a recording posted on YouTube and quoted by the New York Times. "If he gets $20,000 from you, I can live with this."

Then Trebicka alludes to the CIA. "Probably I will be invited in Washington, D.C., by the CIA guys and my friends over there," he says. "Two weeks from now, I will come to Florida to shake hands with you and discuss future deals." Not long after this, Trebicka turned up dead. The Albanian government ruled it a car accident, but skeptics question that finding.

March 2008 was disastrous for Diveroli. On the 27th, the Times, acting partly on Trebicka's leads, accused the company of supplying Chinese ammo to the Pentagon in violation of federal law. The next day, the U.S. government suspended AEY from further contracting work. In a letter announcing the suspension, Pentagon officials warned, "It is reasonable to believe that both Mr. Diveroli and AEY will seek to obtain similar work in the future, either directly or as a representative of another contractor."

I look in at Niqnaq from time to time myself, Rowan. You have an audience, never fear.

lobro said...

niqnaq is heavier on content, lighter on emotion than xymph, but the xymph's comments section carry the day, imo, the galactic best.

for some reason, this is a boisterous forum, whereas the others have this classroom atmosphere.

(i think that xymph sometimes tosses a rock at the killer bees nest to stir things up, like his occasional defense of 911 dogma)

i like this from a. cockburn at counterpunch.

"Since America’s political system is one of institutionalized bribery, overt (the legal political “donation”) and covert (the bag of cash ) and has a tax code with 50,000 pages of fine print, it stands to reason that of any ten nominees enduring scrutiny by White House investigators, by the staff of the Senate Finance Committee plus the occasional journalist probably 98 per cent will have some sort of explaining to do. Throw in infidelity and kindred offenses outlined at detail in the opening books of the Bible and maybe only Rep Ron Paul would survive."

- I very much appreciate your humor, lobro, and that of 5ds too of course, but you can have too much boisterousness, like at Mondoweiss, as I mentioned, it doesn't get much more boisterous than that: the moment you open your mouth, chris berel or suzanne will say something like "well, you support hamas in their determination to send the Jews to the gas, of course."

if only. and the gas would be their bodies own. that is the one decent act by sharon. building the wall that is. to help mankind, it was built to keep jewish gas bounded, contained. not to steal and destroy as many think.

It seems to be OK for the Vatican to run the world's largest predatory refuge for pervs who like to show altar boys their Rod and Staff, but don't be asking no questions about the sweetest money making racket ever to hit our pocketbook...Besides the MBS meltdown, also courtesy of the Tribe.

et tu, Turkey?

ANKARA - A Turkish prosecutor has launched an investigation into whether Israel committed genocide and crimes against humanity in its offensive in Gaza, his office said Friday.

The investigation follows a complaint lodged by the Islamist-leaning human rights association Mazlum-Der against several Israeli officials, including President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Defence Minister Ehud Barak and army chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi.


but of course, Turks are well known jew-haters, right?

For centuries, the Ottoman Empire was the refuge of the Jews of Europe, who did not have the freedom of religion in Europe that the citizens of the Ottoman Empire did. Jews expelled from Spain in 1492 found refuge in the Balkans and elsewhere in Ottoman territory, where the sultan decreed they should be welcomed. Famously, Sultan Abdulmecid rejected the Christian “blood libel” against the Jews. Jews and Christians held significant posts such as ambassadors and court physicians. Christians and Jews could become viziers as several did at various times.

Lewis (1984) cites a fifteenth-century Jew writing to Jews in Europe and urging them to migrate to Turkey: “Is it not better for you to live under Muslims than Christians? Here every man may dwell at peace under his own vine and fig tree. Here you are allowed to wear the most precious garments. In Christendom, on the contrary, you dare not even venture to clothe your children red or blue—without exposing them to the insult of being beaten black and blue…


Wonder what caused the sudden switch to "anti-semitism" ...

Black Girl From Tannery Flats
Saint Thelma's Book

By ISHMAEL REED

Quote:

One would hope that books such as my mother's would inspire others of our elders to provide a different witness to history than that offered by our educational institutions. A history written by men who blame the slave trade on "African chieftains," exclusively. Purveyors of feel-good lies that diminish the contributions of African-Americans, Asian-Americans and Hispanics and white ethnics to American civilization. How many students know about the working class white southerners who lived in regions that refused to go along with the Secession,and that in at least one southern state there occurred a secession within the secession. How many know that before demagogues arose, warning of "negro domination," blacks and whites voted together or that populist Tom Watson was able to summon two thousand white farmers to prevent the lynching of a black populist.

LET THE WORLD RAIN SHOES ON ISRAEL

Gather up your dirty, stinking, smelly old shoes and sneakers and send them, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, to:

THE ISRAELI CONSUL GENERAL
800 2nd AVENUE
NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10017


http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org/TPV3/Voices.php/2009/02/03/matter-of-defiance-let-the-world-rain-sh

Took their advice and this morning, mailed in a hiking boot from a pair that was beyond redemption.
Chose the boot that looked and smelled the funkiest and sent it to the IDF Baby Killers NY branch along with a signed note saying "Free Palestine" and "Stop the murderous ethnic cleansing campaign against the Palestinians" and "Turn over all IDF war criminals to the ICC."

Added my mailing address so they can send me a Thank You note.

Think they will?

I take if from your response that you're unaware of this RB? How's that?

Just a quick note on the Madoff victims. A closer look at the supposed victims reveals his co-conspirators. They are framed as victims by a subservient press that has no desire at all to publicize where the stolen money is stored. It is in the banks of an allied nation that is beyond reproach, bordering the Mediterranean.

Rowan Berkeley said...

aw, this is the second time he has posted that complaint in the last week. but you're right, I must foreswear the obscenities.

It should say "This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of Noahide Laws"

"stevie you are full of shit. you are looking at naqniq not niqnaq."

So I see. So why didn't you say that in the first place, you miserable c**t?

It would help if it wasn't on Xymph's links.

Still, I don't see how that makes me "full of shit". I didn't even know you had two sits.

Or why.

Rowan's first site, naqniq, got banned ages ago, being guilty, according to some, of something or other.

Xymphora actually had a blog post about the demise of naqniq.
I guess that the link updating got overlooked.

Take the "...full of shit" idea as pommie hyperbole. :-)
