THE BLINDNESS OF ZIONISM

While “alleged” anti-Semitism is becoming more and more exaggerated in the media, and anti-Semitism officials will soon be sitting in every town hall, but in fact the racist attacks against Muslims are on the rise.

Not seeing everything through the “Jewish-Christian” glasses

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

It is scary that the German government and politics are always happy to seek human rights, but in fact has long ago stepped into the bin. The demonization of Putin, Erdogan, Maduro are special examples of the political and media power of the rushing misinformation. While spiritual arsonists continue to focus on the media and try to emphasize the transatlantic friendship, the majority of German citizens have long since developed in a different direction. They now distrust the US more than China (!), A country that also violates human rights. Dissidents sit in prisons, and criticism is fiercely opposed. Turkey has rightly accused China of operating concentration camps for the Uyghur Muslim minority and accusing it of it is eradicating religion and culture. The “Jewish state” in Palestine does not try anything else. As an occupying power, the “Jewish State” also runs the Gaza concentration camp and carries out genocide and reprisals against Palestinians. Week after week, Palestinians are brutally murdered by the Israeli authorities in an effort to flee this confinement.

 

Egypt, which holds more than 60,000 political prisoners in inhumane prisons, is praised by Chancellor Merkel and German politicians and industrialists, as well as the Egyptian “leader” al-Sisi. Everything is done to keep these countries happy, so that German industry and its export flourish.

 

To disrespect disrespect for Muslims living here

 

What has become of German politics? If the Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Widmann-Mauz, calls for “respect for the way we live” and strives for the “Judeo-Christian tradition that has marked the value of humanism”, then that is particularly disrespectful not to outbid the Muslims living here.

 

What does she want to achieve with it? That migrants feel marginalized and are told how to recover from the “German nature”? What has this “Jewish-Christian” tradition brought us? An exaltation of this culture, which always turns into “Un-culture”, as we are currently experiencing. So when the cultures collide and are not taken as they are then a bang will come.

 

Whenever we read one-sidedly about the “negative sides of Islam”, about so-called honor killings, women’s oppression and medieval structures, and the fear of “Islamist terrorism” is constantly raised, an Islam incitement is deliberately fostered. Why was the only Muslim kindergarten closed? With flimsy arguments that the bearer of the day-care center, the mosque association Arab Nile-Rhine, which bears the Mainz Al-Nur Kindergarten “represents the contents of the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafism and thus no longer stands on the ground of the Basic Law? Counter question: Are Jewish day-care centers still on the ground of the Basic Law, if they represent contents of the “Jewish state”, which clearly violates international law and human rights? Clear double standards and discrimination!

 

Defamatory intimidation symbiosis

 

While “alleged” anti-Semitism is becoming more and more exaggerated in the media, and anti-Semitism officials will soon be sitting in every town hall, but in fact the racist attacks against Muslims are on the rise, the post of racism officer is still vacant.

 

However, this does not seem to interest politics any further, as it tries with all its might, together with the Israel lobby, to focus exclusively on the allegedly rising anti-Semitism, which in reality has not risen, but with targeted actions in the foreground is written. Every day, new articles and TV programs appear that outdo each other in pointing out the increase.What does that suggest? First of all the danger of “Muslim immigration” and secondly the “anti-Semitic” of any criticism of Israel. It’s amazing how the defamation of anti-Zionism to anti-Semitism has become a bullying symbiosis. New formulas for allegations are used to point out the danger.While right-wing extremist hordes are now mobbing villages and towns and there are AfD tendencies that clearly fish in anti-Semitic waters, while the AfD, as a party, quite explicitly affirms that it is on the side of the Jews and of Israel. I can only warn again and again to vote for this party, even if the understandable disenchantment with politics over the policies of other parties increases more and more, which I fully understand, I feel the same way.

 

The Israeli lobby’s policy is only to defame Israel critics in public life with massive campaigns. They do not shy away from questionable means, and that actually connects them again with the right-wing extremist policy of the “Jewish state”.

 

Something is wrong in Germany

 

Meanwhile, the respected historian and anti-Semitism researcher Benz, who taught at the Technical University of Berlin until 2011, is denigrated because he refuses to confirm an increase in anti-Semitism and criticized the new reporting office for anti-Semitism. Benz is right when he criticized this “RIAS” position as something denunciatory, after all, anti-Semite is the gravest reproach in Germany. Really? Is this term meanwhile not unbelievably “devalued” by the inflationary use? If Jewish citizens are made anti-Semites simply because they have the decency to criticize the “Jewish state” for their disempowering occupation and apartheid policies, and Jews in Germany are banned from performing, then something goes wrong in Germany.

 

If only those Jews are being courted who are in solidarity with Israeli politics, then we have reached a point that reminds us of a time in Germany that has already caused a mischief. If Jews are again turned outsiders by philosemitic politicians and representatives of the Israel lobby today, then this is a crime that can not be made good again. No, it is certainly not anti-Semitism to criticize the “Jewish state” and demand an end to the occupation or support the BDS movement. If Jewish citizens take over their responsibility for Palestine, while German politicians ignore it and prefer to ally with the “Jewish state”, then something is not right in Germany.

 

BDS is not directed against Jews

 

The US-Professor Judith Butler, a model Jewish fighter for the freedom of Palestine, writes in the newly published collection “New Anti-Semitism”, Suhrkamp-Verlag, she sees the BDS campaign “as a new solidarity alliance for more social justice, which calls for Solidarity with the Palestinian national movement through BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) and push the anti-racist struggle forward with the argument: “The boycott is not directed against Jews, it does not target Israeli citizens. It targets Israeli institutions that have the power to put pressure on the government to end its reprehensible laws and policies regarding Palestine. “

 

So much for the recurring fake argument “do not buy from the Jew”.

 

Only 74 years after the liberation and the end of the war, the enemy image of Russia is being rebuilt. What led to sanctions and protests in the case of the Crimea homecoming after a correctly expired referendum (!) Does not detract from the friendship with the Jewish occupiers. For decades, they have been allowed to commit unpunished, illegal annexations, and human rights abuses of the worst kind, making the living conditions of the Palestinians increasingly unbearable, building walls and checkpoints to achieve the final solution of a Judaized Palestine. Therefore, they are considered and rewarded with ever-expanding cooperation.

 

We do not need US bases, nuclear weapons and blackmail

 

What else needs to happen until German politics wakes up and thinks?However, we seem further away than ever before, more and more the importance of transatlantic friendship is sought, which is supposed to be so important for our protection. What protection and from whom? We should all ask ourselves this question if the German government, in accordance with Trump’s orders, but against the interests of its population, increases the military expenditure more and more, supported by German government policy. The German government is being blackmailed by US Ambassador Grenell, who, against every diplomatic practice, is making unspeakable demands for the end of Nordstream 2 or the Iran-EU agreement. It is basically just about the “America first” with the blackmail attempt, to sell overpriced US LPG to Germany and Europe. We need both agreements urgently, but no US bases, nuclear weapons and blackmail that harm the German economy.

 

What is this for a German foreign policy, which has fully recognized in the footsteps of Trump and his Venezuela regime change attempt, the self-proclaimed “interim president” and thus, according to a report of the scientific service of the Bundestag a questionable interference “Venezuela’s internal affairs”, which raises doubts about international legitimacy. (1)

 

Finally, when Federal President Steinmeier finds “clear” words on Venezuela’s situation as part of his trip to South America – because the country is “after years of autocracy and mismanagement on the edge of the abyss”. Steinmeier called for free presidential elections, because only a new president “on a credible, legitimate basis” could give the people of Venezuela a future. What is this German interference and what gives him the legitimacy to express himself? Has Federal President Steinmeier ever advocated free and democratic elections in illegally occupied Palestine or criticized an Israeli prime minister?

 

Responsibility for Palestine and the Palestinian people

 

In fact, Chancellor Merkel never intervenes in the “internal affairs” of the “Jewish state,” even though these are not “inner” ones, but affect us as well, which, out of historical responsibility, we have a responsibility for Palestine and the Palestinian people, always is forgotten again, but until Palestine is free.

 

Meanwhile, it has become “normal” that the Netanyahu regime interferes in internal affairs of German politics and culture. The fact that he tries not only as a prime minister, but also as a war, culture and foreign minister in one person to interfere and to take more and more influence and pressure, may not be tolerated. We have experienced this influence and this wealth of power in the last ten years. Will we soon see Israeliization in Germany, which will increase again? Netanyahu tries to do his Judaisierung in Germany. He, who tramples on the rights of the Palestinians, has also scored points with the AfD, which is quite openly living out its hatred of Islam and thus finds itself in good company with the far-right politics of the “Jewish state”. In addition, he openly tries to wedge the European partners if he provocatively does not come to Munich for the so-called security conference, but flies to Warsaw to attend the more than controversial Warsaw Anti-Iran Conference. Not that we regret his absence in Munich, he sends high-ranking representatives. After all, when it comes to war and weapons sold as “security”, the “Jewish state” is always there. But it shows how Netanyahu is trying to band together with Iran-hostile and Islam-hating states to push a wedge into European politics, much like his friend Trump did. but flies to Warsaw to attend the more than controversial Warsaw Anti-Iran Conference. Not that we regret his absence in Munich, he sends high-ranking representatives. After all, when it comes to war and weapons sold as “security”, the “Jewish state” is always there. But it shows how Netanyahu is trying to band together with Iran-hostile and Islam-hating states to push a wedge into European politics, much like his friend Trump did. but flies to Warsaw to attend the more than controversial Warsaw Anti-Iran Conference. Not that we regret his absence in Munich, he sends high-ranking representatives. After all, when it comes to war and weapons sold as “security”, the “Jewish state” is always there. But it shows how Netanyahu is trying to band together with Iran-hostile and Islam-hating states to push a wedge into European politics, much like his friend Trump did.

 

Respect for human rights instead of unchecked policy of indecent recklessness

 

So it brings us back to the topic, the respect that German politicians demand of Muslims, they should also prove the Muslims in Germany and not always see everything only through the “Jewish-Christian” glasses. This requires the respect for human rights, which are increasingly losing themselves in an unrestrained policy of indecent recklessness, following the example of the USA and Israel.

A SCREAM FOR THE PALESTINIAN DREAM

I dream someday that our living nightmare will end

I Dream ……

By Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD

I dream someday that our living nightmare will end. Images like a sister
crying over the body of her 14 year old brother Hasan Shalabi who was shot
in the heart simply for wanting to have a life. The video of the same kid
so full of life saying he dreams of getting a job to help his family of
nine in Gaza haunt me. He is just a kid and I cannot imagine the pain of
his family. I imagine someday I will not hear about destruction of the
Amazon rain forest or bleeching of coral reefs or another “trophy hunt” or
of a girl murdered (like Palestinian Swar murdered by cruel men for “honor”
or the 5 year old raped and murderedin India). I dream of India going back
to its anti-colonial days instead of buying billions in weapons it does not
need from Israel (a colonial state). I dream of days like when my
grandfather’s friend in school was a Jewish student (i.e. I dream of the
end of apartheid and all of us living together in one country in friendship
as before).

I dream of days when the world takes serious action to stop the ongoing
global environmental nakba (catastrophe) and stop marching towards a
nuclear holocaust. I dream of days when no child goes hungry (now 1/5th of
world children do) or days when the world stood up against rathewr than
cajored dictators like those ruling in Arabia. I dream of a future where
westerny governmenents do not topple democraticly elected governments in
natural resource rich areas to install puppets of neo-colonialism
(Mousaddaq in Iran in 1950s, Chile in Sept 11, 1973, Venezuela this year).
I dream of may things. But I am also realistic and thus work hard to change
what I can: give me the courage to change the things I can, patience for
those I can’t, and wisdom to know the difference.

I teach a course in biodiversity at Birzeit University for master students
in environmental biology. I teach others (formal and informal) of all ages
in logical thinking, in research methodologies, in human rights etc. I try
to convince myself that if these young students (some in high school or
younger) can and do respect themselves, respect others, and respect nature,
then there is hope for humanity. The young people always give me hope. I
had a dream last night where there are a gathering of white haired
Palestinian politicians (Mahmoud Abbas, Azzam Al-Ahmad, etc) with similar
other politicians (Modi, Netanyahu, Trump etc) but I was most worried about
two young children among them both with white hair who looked like
miniature of these politicians (copies, clones). I tried to approach them
but was shielded from them by the white-haired politicians.

Perhaps this is my biggest fear/nightmare: That some young people are
becoming clones of our political leadership and it is getting hard to reach
them. Bethlehem University is shut down basically because the student
council leaders (who happen to be Fatah members) want to prove themselves
ahead of upcoming student elections by opening files of practical training
fees applied three years ago. I hope this gets resolved soon and students
go back to classes. What encourages me and other volunteers who work even
seven days a week is that we do see things that need doing and do them and
no matter how modest these achievements are (see 2018 achievements here), we at lease preserve our sanity in this crazy world. But it is a bit
more than that, even on social media where I see many posts and opinions
without actions but the posts do precede actions. Knowledge is important
but we must keep pushing for actions.

So much for this Sunday “thinking out loud”. Now back to work: today I am
working on a grant proposal for peacemaking, preparing for talks to
internationals, working with a couple of brilliant highschool students,
museum administrative tasks, and answering emails. It is raining heavily –
otherwise I would have taken a hike…. Life/struggle goes on.

Capitalism Killed Our Climate Momentum, Not “Human Nature” By Naomi Klein

IN DEFENSE OF OUR MORAL DUTY

There is only one moral duty that concerns us all and for which it is necessary to defend the high good of freedom of expression.

 

There is only one moral duty

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Time and again, when Holocaust survivors, such as the Israeli historian Saul Friedlander on the occasion of the anniversary for the victims of National Socialism, believe that “defending Israel’s right to exist … is a fundamental moral obligation” makes me stunned, and so on I am appalled by the one-sidedness of the historian and contemporary witnesses. (1) I find it simply absurd for Holocaust survivors, of all people, to defend a state that has lost all moral integrity through its decade-long occupation of Palestine and the constant onslaught of land. In fact Friedlander was lucky enough to find his home in 1948 in the “Jewish State”. Like many others, he has obviously never wondered what this “happiness” was! For he too, like many others, has repressed the fact that this “happiness” was created on the misfortune of the more than 750,000 Palestinians expelled from their ancestral home, homeless to this day. The ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israel is progressing, because the Jewish occupiers want the land, but without their autochthonous Palestinian population.

Moral duty to comply with international law

As a historian to be taken seriously, Friedlander would have had to remember those dark, murderous chapters of his new homeland, which makes the Palestinian people the last forgotten victim of the Nazi barbarei. His speech to the Bundestag could have been a good opportunity to recall this sad fact and to enlighten the German elite there that Germany is historically in the “moral duty” to stand up for the Palestinian people.

Palestinians last “co-victims” of the Holocaust

Although Bundestag President Schäuble in his opening address unctuously reminded of the commandment to be a fellow human being and not to forget our responsibility, for him this responsibility does not apply to the Palestinians as the last “co-victims” of the Holocaust. Instead, Schäuble rummaged about the cheap, supposedly “newly immigrated anti-Semitism” from the prejudice drawer. Against this, I clearly take sides with the party: certainly it is not anti-Semitism when Muslims attack the “Jewish state” and its politics, but simply demanding the international law of Israel! Even the ever-diminishing Palestinian Christians demand compliance with international law.

New rights in Germany firmly on the side of the extreme right in the “Jewish state”

The fact that Friedländer in his speech attacked not only the extreme right but also the extreme left and lumped it is unbearable! After all, it is well known that the extreme right here in Germany, the AfD, is firmly on the side of the Jews and how the Israeli government vehemently rejects the establishment of a Palestinian state, and is therefore in complete harmony with the extreme right wing in the “Jewish state”, ie the Netanyahu government, as well as the majority of Israeli-Jewish citizens and the majority of Jewish organizations in the diaspora. On the other hand, a large part of the left has a conscience and is on the side of the oppressed Palestinians. It’s outrageous, and it’s not right, as Friedländer puts it, that it’s the “politically correct way of justifying their hatred,

Whenever the antisemitism leg is swung again and again

No, Mr. Friedlander, it is certainly not anti-Semitism when the “Jewish State” is attacked for its occupation and human rights violations, and more than shameful when the anti-Semitism leg is repeatedly swung to the defense of criticism.

Friedländer speech: example of Israel propaganda and art of distraction

Regrettably, the criticism is not obsessive enough because nothing has changed over the years but is getting worse and more brutal. And your speech, Mr. Friedlander, was a prime example of using the Jewish Project, the Hasbara Project, for worldwide Israeli propaganda to silence and denounce Israeli critics. And indeed, in this shabby way of stopping criticism, Israel is a master, and where could this scientific propaganda fall on more fertile ground than in Germany, the land of the former perpetrators. You, Mr. Friedlander, hit just the right nerve, they heartbreaking portrayed your really shattering and sad biography, in a quiet tone that rightly mesmerized all listeners.

The high standard of freedom of expression is called into question by the Israel lobby worldwide

While he pointed out that Germany and the majority of Germans today is a changed country that encourages him, he could be sure of the standing ovations of the assembled audience. Yes, the majority of Germans need praise and recognition, but even more absolution for the past. This game of praise and blame, between strokes and strokes makes them happy, especially when it comes from people like them or from the “Jewish state”. What bothers in this unity? The criticism of the “Jewish state”. Therefore, this criticism is immediately denigrated as anti-Semitic and stifled in the bud, in defiance of the well-known truth about the crimes of Israel and all democratic practices and the freedom of expression. This high commodity is being called into question by the Israel lobby worldwide, when it comes to Israel / Palestine. Your speech, Mr. Friedlander, was a prime example of this “art”, the art of distraction.

There is no right to exist for a state without borders and constitution

The shabby instrumentalization of the Holocaust, the uniqueness of this crime, smashes any discussion that even attempts to criticize the “Jewish state”. There is no right to exist for a state without borders and constitution, but only a right to exist for people, citizens, but in no case applies only to Jews, as is repeatedly propagated. The Palestinians, the indigenous peoples of Palestine, who are granted neither the same rights nor their legal right of return, nor their right to a homeland, are discriminated against with the help of the descendants of the victims and the perpetrators. It is frightening how former victims and perpetrators unite and act together in a friendly community. The critics, including Jews, and Muslims remain as a metaphor for anti-Semitism,

Apartheid streets for Jews only

While the new rights in Europe have more and more in common with the “Jewish state”, BDS supporters and critical leftists stand for the right to exist of a Palestinian state. 71 years after the founding of the state of Israel, it has still not been possible to found a Palestinian state. This wish, thanks to Jewish and “Judeo-Christian” supporters and helpers, is increasingly turning into a mirage, a fairy tale. While the settlers and the settlements in occupied Palestine rob more and more land, the apartheid streets “only for Jews”, walls and checkpoints more and more fragmented by Palestine, and Jerusalem is simply illegally seized as the eternal capital of a “Jewish state”, politics is silent this obvious wrong. In your speech, Mr. Friedlander, the Palestinians and Palestine did not occur.

Such a state has no right to exist

In fact, the question arises, does the “Jewish state” have a right to existence as it exists today and is built up? No, and I can only repeat it again and again, not like that. Despite everything, we must continue to work for the freedom of Palestine and the self-determination of its people, because only then is a peaceful future guaranteed.

In Germany there is again a prohibition of speech for Jews

Who, if not you, Mr. Friedlander, as a witness and Holocaust survivor, would have been able to use all your powers to achieve this goal. She, who forgave the Germans so generously and helped in 2002 to make the history of the Bertelsmann Group “Kosher”. But that today in Germany there is again a prohibition of speech for Jews, so you select “again” good “Jews and” bad “Jews, you miss studiously. (2)

Empathy for the suffering of the Palestinians

While Holocaust survivors like Hajo Meyer, the author of numerous books and fighters for a free Palestine, neither from the Bundestag nor from the official side ever found the deserved recognition, one now hopes only “good” Jews. Feeling empathy for the suffering of the Palestinians, Hajo Meyer was able to identify with Palestinian youth from his experience, making him an admirable contemporary witness who never ignored others’ sufferings. It is the creeping poison of the “new anti-Semitism” that makes Jews outcast again. Jews who dare to support the peaceful BDS campaign are being launched by philosemitic politicians and the media under the guidance of the “Jewish State” and its helpers (Sayanim worldwide). (3)

Mayor Becker: drunk with happiness when looking at the occupation state

Friedlander is correct in that Germany today became a country that exemplarily intensified its cooperation with the “Jewish State” – supported medially and politically by an unprecedented exaggeration of everything Jewish in Germany. There is a unique transfiguration in progress that must repel any “normal” Jewish citizen, as he is concerned in his embarrassment. Do Jewish citizens really want to be something “special” again, so they are considered “Kippa exotics”. In addition, when the multifunctional Mayor of Frankfurt, Becker, thinks that he is on the frontline of solidarity with the occupation state for a whole day running around in the “most Jewish city in Germany”, because he is downright drunk with happiness when he is in Israel and up the occupied Golan can look. Quite funny what fits this Becker everything: The Oxymoron crew + rule of law. I call this degenerate! (4)

When a religion depends on a piece of foreskin

Why, I ask, should it be anti-Semitic to argue that it does not have to be considered a bodily harm to cut off the penis’ foreskin just born to Jewish male babies? What justifies this ritual? Nowhere in the Torah (Old Testament) is this ritual required. It became a stone-carved dogma that can not be justified with anything. Time and again, it is demanded on all sides that Islam should be renewed, but in Judaism every question of this kind is stylized immediately to hatred of the Jews. We must not forget that not only in Reform Judaism, but also in the “Jewish State” more and more Jews do not let their boys be circumcised, yet observe other rules. Just as Jews burn themselves after death today, All rites should finally come to the table. If a religion depends on a piece of foreskin then there is not much to it. For me that also applies to the celibacy of Catholics, which in my opinion is unnatural and by no means “God-willing” but – as always comes to light – only abuse and pedophilia or according to Pope Francis nuns abuse by priests. (5)

If the religions do not succeed in renewing themselves and accepting the equal rights of women, there will be fewer and fewer believers in the future. Although I do not make much friends with these statements, I remain faithful, and religious rites are justified only as long as they do not interfere with fundamental rights. Everyone should believe what and to whom he wants, but please without compulsion and state.

Moral duty to denounce Israeli state terrorists

So if we see it as our moral duty to support the struggle for freedom of the Palestinian people and denounce occupation and oppression by Israeli state terrorists, then that is perfectly legitimate and in accordance with international law.

If we defend ourselves against the fact that the federal government is making more and more common cause with these state terrorists, then it is our moral duty to tackle it. We demand:

 

  • No youth exchange that infects our youth with the occupation poison,
  • no federal exchange of arms with Jewish “defense soldiers” defending this illegal occupation by all means.
  • No armor drones, cyber exchange, as well
  • no joint cabinet meetings.
  • No participation in the Songfestival ESC in Tel Aviv for white washing of the crew
  • No cultural exchange, but support from Israeli artists who refuse to be restricted in their work. Not the BDS support is anti-Semitic, but it is the new Jews haters who want to prohibit Jews the right to freedom of expression.
  • Not BDS, but the new rights in Europe, which, in cooperation with the “Jewish state terrorists”, are trying to defame the left and the Muslims as terrorists.

 

Defend the high good of freedom of expression!

There is only one moral duty that concerns us all and for which it is necessary to defend the high good of freedom of expression.

REMEMBRANCE CULTURE

Time and again, attempts are being made to establish the Holocaust as the break with civilization, which it was, as the ONLY day of remembrance. Why is there no Nakba day of remembrance so inextricably linked to the Holocaust? And what about the 872 days (from 1941 to 1944) of the siege of Leningrad by German troops, which also ended on January 27? During this siege with the aim of the Nazis to systematically starve the Leningrad population, estimates estimated that between 630,000 and 1.5 million people died.

The Motherland Calls is a breathtaking 85-m high statue, the centrepiece of the “Heroes of the Battle of Stalingrad” memorial at the Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd (former Stalingrad) commemorating the Battle of Stalingrad. It is the world’s tallest statue depicting a female figure

Remedy remembrance culture

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

The commemoration of the victims of National Socialism and the International Day of Remembrance of Holocaust Rembrance Day (Holocaust Victims) on 27 January has again become a nefarious “non-memorial day”. Time and again, attempts are being made to establish the Holocaust as the break with civilization, which it was, as the ONLY day of remembrance. Why is there no Nakba day of remembrance so inextricably linked to the Holocaust? And what about the 872 days (from 1941 to 1944) of the siege of Leningrad by German troops, which also ended on January 27? During this siege with the aim of the Nazis to systematically starve the Leningrad population, estimates estimated that between 630,000 and 1.5 million people died.

 

It is incomprehensible until today, which cruelties the Germans did to these trapped humans. It was the inferno par excellence and comparable to an extermination camp. More than 700,000 dead army fighters lost their lives fighting for Leningrad, now St. Petersburg. The German Wehrmacht knew what it was doing and reported exactly about the conditions.

 

Infame Journaille not to outnumber perversity

 

If today, 75 years after this crime against humanity, the Süddeutsche Zeitung thinks nothing better than to pull the liberation of Leningrad and the Russian commemoration and thus the victims in the dirt, then that should concern us. No, not Moscow “abuses” the memory of the victims, as Silke Bigalke in their dirt commentary “Blocked Remembrance” in the SZ January 25 to the best. Russia has every right to remember that day. How this is to happen is certainly not to be decided by German journalists. We should all be ashamed of all this abominable behavior of an infamous journalist. (1)

 

Also, that 75 years after the end of the siege of Leningrad, a German government supported by nothing to justify sanctions against Russia, and thus figuratively starve Russian citizens starve, can not be beat for perversity. Apart from that, you are harming our economy and thus us, the citizens and sovereigns! We German citizens are well aware of Russia’s ever-extending hand and its magnanimity towards Germany, who shy away from the belligerent transatlanticists in the government like the devil shuns the holy water. The “generous gesture as a symbol that we are aware of our responsibility” of Foreign Minister Maas, with 12 million euros to support surviving victims in Russia, is not enough! It would have to be 12 billion and the immediate lifting of the blockade against Russia.

 

What happens instead? Russia is becoming the bad boy of the INF agreement, and massive conventional armament is threatening. While NATO is boasting ever-increasing arms spending – at the expense of the taxpayer who wants to live in peace – the US and even Israel are getting stronger, without controls and threats of action.

 

So how can a contract be rescued that wants to be canceled by the US, with all the dirty tricks? How can we get the US or Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty before forcing other countries to comply with the treaty? What a mendacious policy of double standards, which now guides our foreign policy. Especially Germany should always be aware of its responsibility towards Russia.

 

Are we again in the Cold War and the nuclear deterrent as a weapon? It seems like you have not learned anything and are getting back into forgotten strategies. In this context, I am thinking of “Operation Unthinkable,” a war plan commissioned by the then British Prime Minister, Churchill, on May 22, 1945, shortly after the German surrender of the Wehrmacht, the military repulse of the then Soviet Union, and the restoration of Poland by Great Britain and the US, but was classified by the British Chief of Staff Committee as military impracticable. Thus, fortunately, nothing came of Churchill’s fantasies about the “Third World War” against the Soviet Union, except for his treacherous slogan “we slaughtered the wrong pig. (2) (3) (4)

 

Under the hypocritical term “western values”

 

Even today we experience similar simulation games and Nato fantasies under the guise of “peacekeeping measures”! This ranges from the brutal Nato-Ost fraud, the grotesque “defense of Germany in the Hindu Kush” and other warlike aggression to “regime changes” and blunt interference in the affairs of sovereign countries. Everything under the hypocritical term “western values”.

The USA has been operating regime changes for decades, for example in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Syria and Egypt, and they are currently trying to do so in Venezuela. It supports the US puppet, the self-proclaimed transitional president and parliamentary president Guaido in his coup attempt against elected President Maduro. I find it extremely reprehensible that the EU and Germany at the front line behind these putschists and sets in Gutsherrenmanier Maduro an ultimatum until 3 February to start new elections, otherwise they threaten the recognition of the putschists. The USA, Canada, Australia, some Latin American states and Israel (!) Have already done this. Is this really compatible with “western values”? I mean no, because if those are the values, we can not really lower any more. A statement by Washington in the UN Security Council to support Guaido failed to support China and Russia. Turkey, too, thankfully backed Maduro.Once again, with the old trick of smugglers, the shortage of food and payments on the screw, people are forced to make a coup.

 

So the solidarity of the more than 70 intellectuals, including Noam Chomsky, John Pilger and other well-known personalities, is so important that in an open letter “in the interest of the Venezuelan people, the region and the principle of national sovereignty” an end to the US Intervention in Venezuela. Critical German voices are sought in vain! (5)

 

The policy of the German government under Merkel leads us into the uncritical transatlanticization and arms trap, which inevitably leads to the abyss. So, if 75 years after the end of the war and the liberation of Auschwitz, German soldiers are stationed in the “Jewish State” and trained to be armed combat drones, then the responsible German politicians have learned nothing from our history. German soldiers are trained by brutal and murderous Jewish “defense soldiers”, an army that does not shy away from brutal extrajudicial executions, brutal occupation crimes and genocide in Gaza. (6)

 

Chancellor Merkel can not be beaten by malicious hypocrisy

 

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement, which never interferes in “internal affairs” in the “Jewish state,” described Iran’s policy as “threatening to Israel” in a radio interview with an Israeli broadcaster on Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is not malignant to outbid is.

 

Because not Iran – who has never attacked another country militarily – is a threat to the “Jewish state”, but the militarily armed Israel threatens and combats for years already Iran by all means. Merkel’s kowtowing goes so far as to show understanding for the “concerns of Israel over Iran” and that she considers it “important and correct” that Israel represents its “security interests”, and refers to the Israeli – in violation of international law – air strikes against Syria does not condemn them, but actually says: “Israel must secure its existence, and the situation in Syria is, of course, a very threatening one for Israel as well”. In addition, Merkel continued, “we are also committed to ensuring that, for example, no Iranian forces come so close to the Golan Heights”. But Merkel can speak as she wants: the occupied Golan is and remains Syrian and will one day be liberated! (7)

 

As it turns out, Merkel’s statements are not in line with our democratic principles. Their comments on the illegally occupied Golan Heights, which the “Jewish State” claims to be forever, are hardly reconcilable with international law. If this is our official policy, then we have moved away from all norms. While Russia was promptly sanctioned because of the secession of the Crimea after a previous referendum – because many international lawyers are by no means concerned about an “annexation” – the “Jewish state” is allowed to land their land every day. The Israeli crimes against international law, human rights, illegal occupation and the policy of apartheid against the Palestinian people have never been sanctioned.After all, according to Merkel, these are “internal affairs” of the “Jewish friends” who can still enjoy their support and shameful denial of Palestinian rights. This is the philosemitic “Christian-Zionist” Merkel policy 75 years after the end of the war and with the empty mantra “Never again”.

 

To include Russians and Palestinians equally in commemoration!

 

The “Jewish State” abuses the memory of the victims of the Holocaust – and with energetic German help. There is no memory without peace, and Israel was never ready to make peace with the Palestinians. When the Bundestag commemorates the victims of the Nazi regime on January 31, it would be time to finally include the Russians and the Palestinians in this commemoration on an equal footing, otherwise this ritual will remain as unnecessary and hypocritical as every year, and it will degenerate to the weapon of remembrance culture.

ZIONISM …. ‘NO GUILT, NO ATONEMENT’

While Palestinian rights are rarely taken into account, the “Jewish state” has increasingly established itself as the only power in Palestine.

Image by Carlos Latuff

The road to apartheid

Zionism knows no guilt and no atonement

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Zionism and the Zionist state terror have only one goal: the sole claim to power on Palestine and the enforcement of this claim by all means. Are they so sure that they can always rely on state European and US support?

The ethnic cleansing of Palestine is a crime against humanity

The ethnic cleansing of Palestine is a crime against humanity, unpunished until today, and leads from Deir Yassin to Gaza. (1) (2)

Fortress Bundestag or Chancellery

In fact, this Zionist colonial policy is losing more and more support in the German, European and American populations. But what does that do to the rulers? Have you ever seriously dealt with citizens’ interests and ideas?Why? Are you so sure in their fortress Bundestag or Chancellery. Seldom did one see so run-down politicians across all parties. They aimlessly give interviews and travel the world, always with the transatlantic alliance in sight, human rights or not. Just do not offend or annoy the “US friend”.

German human rights hypocrites

Let’s see how devastating this kind of subservience affects our politics and economics. Last summer, Foreign Minister Maas had boldly promised in the face of new US-Iran sanctions, to work intensely to ensure that the trade with Iran would be possible and secured support for companies.What was left of it? On Monday, the Federal Government announced its decision to withdraw its operating license from the Iranian airline Mahan Air, which flies three times a week from German airports to Tehran. The Gro / Ko goes beyond sanctions imposed by the EU in early January. The reasons were dubious findings, 

I remember all too well friends and relatives in the Netherlands, who were horrified when the Boeing 747 crashed on October 4, 1992, the El-Al, which crashed on an Amsterdam block of flats and an unknown number of residents to death crack. Three crew members and a passenger also died in the crash. As the Israeli magazine Shiva Yamim reported, the machine had Yamin missiles and military goods aboard that exploded so that the stabilized uranium burned into the wings and spread throughout the area because of the heat Inferno arranged. Since the crash, until today, many residents who had the misfortune to live at the crash site fell ill. Everything was immediately seized by the secret service and covered up. I also know through Dutch acquaintances of Jewish agents who accompanied from Amsterdam via Poland regularly dangerous military supplies in El Al machines, over Poland. was and will the “Jewish state” be deprived of the permission to fly? (3)

To this end, I would like to remind all the human rights hypocrites, especially the Germans, that the Jewish state itself, killing countless of its opponents from its “shadow warriors”, also abroad, to which it is also equipped by his willing German helpers with false passports , It goes without saying that the Jewish state has never been held responsible for the murder policy, at least not for its accomplices. (4) (5) (6)

Worldwide accomplices governments of the “Jewish state”

Where the dubious accusations against Iran come from, we can imagine.The US government has been pressing its allies for many years to withdraw the Iranian line, which has been on the US sanction list since 2011. The ban is also seen as a sign to the Americans. Promptly came the poisoned praise of US Ambassador Grenell, who otherwise excelled only with extortion attempts and undiplomatic poison arrows and isolated in Berlin. All just on the day when the “Jewish State” bragged about attacks on Syria and Iranian fighters and announced further attacks as part of a “permanent policy”. Israel will not allow an “aggression” by Iran, said Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is constantly committing aggression terror himself. The “Jewish state” flew countless attacks against Syria, but even Putin was silent. Not to mention world accomplice governments of the “Jewish state”.

Foreign bodies in the Middle East

What this “permanent policy” looks like, we have been experiencing since the founding of Israel. Regardless of the native Palestinian population, Zionist colonization and Judaization were brutally enforced. The sovereignty of neighboring states has been murderously violated and they have managed, by eternal state of war, to establish themselves as foreign objects in the Middle East. Completely condoned by the international community for decades, they are certain that otherwise the unique trump card of “anti-Semitism” will be drawn from the Zionist sleeve, with which the everlasting role of Jewish victims can be instrumentally exploited – and the guilty conscience for their own failure.

The Holocaust does not justify every means

How many Zionist murders, massacres, occupation crimes and the constant land grabbing took place until today the international community? While Israel is constantly ranting about sanctions against Iran as archenemy and painting a new holocaust on the wall, the international community is reacting with rash subservience. Although the “Jewish state”, armed to the teeth, possesses nuclear weapons, it always feels “threatened” and grotesquely pretends to protect only the security of its citizens. Thus, they use state terrorist methods to legitimize every crime against humanity. Therefore one can not repeat it enough and shout to the submissive politicians: the Holocaust does not justify any means, and a genocide remains a genocide remains a genocide, even if it happens under Jewish state direction!

The antisemitism club is always in use

Meanwhile, the “Jewish State” has built a worldwide sayanim-supporter system that is unique. Especially in the US, Jews have taken strategically important positions in politics, the arts and the publishing industry, as Norman Finkelstein, author of the “Holocaust Industry” writes. Why should it be anti-Semitism when Finkelstein points out? In fact, a lot has changed today. Previously, the Israel lobby was not concerned with Jews being routed as such. Today it is completely different, it is explicitly pointed to the Judaism and put this in the foreground, especially when it comes to celebrities. It ruthlessly turns citizens into Jews who have long since reneged on this religion or been baptized for generations. Escape from this moral extortion is as good as impossible, because everything serves the instrumentalization. The anti-Semitism club is always in use, even if it is getting duller.

No reckless “Jewish exaltation” over nationality

Why do not nations finally defend themselves against the ruthless “exaltation of the Jews” over nationality, as it was also celebrated by various Israeli state and prime ministers. Let us only think of France and Germany, where this method was tried on Jewish citizens in order to lure them into the “Jewish state” as the “homestead” of all Jews. This is a crime and contradicts all state laws of a country. Thus, Jews are the “fifth column”, sitting repeatedly on packed suitcases. If Turkish President Erdogan tried that, there would certainly be a media outcry.

Distraction maneuver to distract from the Zionist crimes

This is just as targeted as the ongoing anti-Semitism campaigns, as we are currently experiencing more and more massive, and the move across Europe. What better than distraction to distract from Zionist crimes? How long can and should this policy be good and tolerated? (7)

Legitimate Palestinian resistance is not terror

While Palestinian rights are rarely taken into account, the “Jewish state” has increasingly established itself as the only power in Palestine. While the Zionist state and occupation terror is unchecked, any Palestinian legitimate resistance is branded as terror. Here, too, we experience this method when Islam and Islam merge into a concept, into terror, just as Muslims became the new enemy. It seems that the “Christian-Jewish value alliance” has finally found its common enemy image. This behavior is a fatal reminder of the Nazi past.

Together with the Jews against Muslims

The “never again” became a “again and again”, this time only with new protagonists. This policy is fatal to the right-wing populists and benefits the AfD. All sit in a boat with the Jews and the “Jewish State” and join forces against the Muslims.

US Jews are rethinking

While in Germany and Europe time and again the “values ​​policy” is endeavored, a rethinking takes place in large parts of the USA and among US Jews. Everything that becomes a controversial taboo subject is allowed in the US. (8) (9)

Enemy images constructed as in the Cold War

Despite a US president who overreached everything and supported the “Jewish state” with all his might. While Israel blatantly supported Syrian al-Nusra terrorists, who were able to do their mischief in Syria and thus brought the Syria war to blaze, it flies undaunted attacks against Syria and tomorrow, perhaps against Lebanon or Iran. Everything is possible with this new power strategy, which increasingly binds us into the US-NATO doctrine. This aggressive policy, which only constructs images of the enemy as in the Cold War, can only end in disaster in the long run. (10 (11)

In the US, thanks to the Trump policy and the “state shutdown”, more and more people, including government officials, are sinking into poverty, unable to pay their rent, installments and food, all thanks to the brutal Trump First policy. (12)

The BDS campaign is becoming increasingly successful internationally

But there is a small ray of hope. More and more young Jewish US citizens refuse that the “Jewish state” holds them liable and speaks and acts for them. They oppose openly, even if that can lead to fatal consequences in universities and in professional life. The BDS campaign is becoming increasingly successful internationally. (11)

In this country, there is a lack of critical Jews

Why was so much silence when it comes to Palestine? Because in the US in particular the political system is based to a large extent on sponsoring and donations. Also, the Mc Carthy times are not forgotten and dirt and slander campaigns are therefore not missing their effect. So it is doubly admirable, as more and more Jewish US citizens abandon the fatal Israel-dependent mainstream. While the Israel lobby and its media and political supporters have long since started to provoke dirty defamation campaigns here, critical Jews who are finally campaigning for respect for human rights and finally refusing to embrace the policy of “loyalty to the Nibelung” to an occupied state are lacking to support. Getting up for freedom Palestine should finally be the maxim. Silence wrongfully means being guilty. (13)

We who stand up for Palestinian freedom know, unlike the Zionists, what guilt and punishment mean.

RESISTANCE AS A SYMBOL OF LIBERATION

Is not the desperate struggle of many young Palestinians against the decades-long Zionist occupation of their country a symbol of resistance?

Resistance as a symbol of liberation

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

If the liberation of Auschwitz was thought of 74 years ago in the German Bundestag on January 31, one could also think about a changed commemoration owed to today’s politics. It would be a start if this year’s guest speaker, Prof. dr. Saul Friedländer, a Prague-born historian whose parents were murdered in Auschwitz, who survived the Holocaust hidden in France and who emigrated to Israel after the end of the war, would shed light on all facets of the symbol of “Auschwitz and Liberation”. Especially after the ceremony, an exhibition of the United States Holocaust Museum entitled “Some were neighbors” is opened.

Parallels from the Warsaw Ghetto to Gaza

 

Would not it be an important gesture, if Friedländer would dare, what would never come to mind German politicians and friends of Israel, namely parallels from the Warsaw Ghetto to Gaza or the illegal occupation of Palestine by Holocaust victims and their descendants?

2 million imprisoned people in the Gaza concentration camp accuse

 

Is not the desperate struggle of many young Palestinians against the decades-long Zionist occupation of their country a symbol of resistance?And why are they criminalizing this unequal and desperate struggle while Jewish resistance is being heroized? Is not it necessary to put an end to this kind of “Christian-Jewish values ​​alliance”? Do not nearly 2 million imprisoned people protest in the Gaza concentration camp, especially in memory of Auschwitz and the Warsaw Ghetto? (1)

Is not the Warsaw Ghetto the symbol of Jewish resistance to German occupation 76 years ago on 19 April 1943?

Under unspeakable conditions, more than 380,000 Jews had to live in the Warsaw Ghetto since 1940, including my mother. On April 19, 1943, a few hundred of them opposed a superior force of two thousand German occupiers. They knew this fight was hopeless and impossible to win, but they wanted to resist, upright with the gun in hand.

If on January 15 on Arte and on January 22 in the ARD “The Secret Archive in the Warsaw Ghetto” TV premiere and worldwide film screenings in more than 200 locations around the world, u. A. is shown on big screens in Australia, Brazil, Nepal, South Africa and the USA and in various cities in Germany, this is a major project which is unparalleled.

“I did not survive Auschwitz to keep silent on new injustice”

 

And for me, the life motto of my father after his liberation by the Red Army was: “I did not survive Auschwitz to remain silent on new injustice”, always a drive, not to mention wrongly and to campaign for the freedom of Palestine.

Not in the name of “all Jews”

 

Therefore, I will never understand that German politicians are silent in the face of the crimes committed by the “Jewish State”! Especially those who repeatedly talk about Auschwitz as a symbol of politics should be ashamed.How cynical must one be to close one’s eyes to racism, apartheid, human and international crimes, all committed to the justification of the eternal role of victims and an infamous instrumentalization of the Holocaust, given the state of the “Jewish state” and the occupied territories certainly not in the name of “all Jews”!

“Apartheid Road” symbol of racism

 

Last Thursday, a new road was opened in the middle of the occupied West Bank, with an eight-meter-long wall separating Jewish and Palestinian people. This “Apartheid Road” connects the illegal Jewish Geva settlement, southeast of Ramallah, with Route 1, a major road that runs through the occupied West Bank and into occupied East Jerusalem. The occupiers are doing everything they can to make the Palestinians a normal daily life with checkpoints, controls and humiliations. There are already dozens of separate racist apartheid streets built only for Jewish settlers. However, Route 4370 is the first of its kind to have a special feature, namely a wall – half concrete, half fence – that separates Palestinians and Jewish Israelis. If that’s not a symbol of racism and apartheid, it’s even worse than it ever was in apartheid South Africa. Everything is done to cement the demographic demarcation so as to make the West Bank more and more economical and undermine the prospects for the Palestinians. So it goes on piece by piece on the way of expropriation and in the final solution of the Judaisierung. Everything is hoping for the “Greater Jerusalem”, the de facto annexation of the three large settlement blocks, adjacent to Jerusalem City – Gush Etzion in the south, Ma’ale Adumim / E-1 in the east and Givat Ze’ev in the north. Everything is done to facilitate the Jewish settlers free travel to the illegally occupied Jerusalem, claiming the claim to the whole of Jerusalem as an eternally undivided capital of the “Jewish state”.Everything presented by the Trump USA with the breach of international law of a move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. (2)

If implemented, the southern West Bank would be completely cut off from the north, making a future coherent and viable state of Palestine forever impossible, but would make it all belong to this Jewish territory from Jerusalem to the Jericho border. All of these plans are based on the ideas of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the notorious warmonger known as the Butcher of Lebanon.

Netanyahu’s visions of wall construction and apartheid streets

 

2.8 million Palestinians in the West Bank are faced with perfected facts by 500,000 Jewish settlers. These are the political visions of Netanyahu: Walling and apartheid streets, modeled after US friend Trump, who now holds large sections of US officials and workers willing in brutal hostage to enforce his construction of the wall to Mexico. This is what the ethnic cleansing of Palestine looks like – the German Foreign Minister, who has gone into politics because of “Auschwitz”, is silent on it!

Housing units on the site of the massacre of Deir Yassin

If soon plans are also enforced to let 2,300 residential units built just on the site of the massacre of Deir Yassin, then this is incredible and can not be beaten at tasteless Geschichtsklitterung! At the moment, the Jewish National Fund is grandly announcing how much it is doing to strengthen the ecology of Israeli forests. However, the sad truth is that with the green washing of the occupation and land expropriation everything is to be veiled, which reminds of the expulsion of the Palestinians from their homeland.

The illegal expropriation of Palestine by the JNF

Many of the forests originated only to cover the ruins of the Palestinian villages, which were destroyed and violently depopulated during the Nakba in 1948. According to Zochrot, an important and worthy non-profit Israeli organization committed to exposing and commemorating the Nakba crimes. Finally, among more than two-thirds of the forests and sites of KKL Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (the one with the blue can), as part of the JNF, 46 out of 68 forests are buried on the ruins of the former Palestinian demolished by the “Jewish State” villages. Thus, the illegal expropriation of Palestine by the JNF continues and is just the big illegal settlement blocs in Palestine to good. In this context, it is also particularly reprehensible when German politicians, from left-wing politicians Bartsch to Steinmeier and Nahles (SPD) plant again and again “German forests” on stolen land, mind you! (3) (4)

Speaking of Andrea Nahles, the former “Juso” blue shirt and Israel supporter has once again turned entirely to SPD-Art. The SPD leader said last November in a speech in Berlin, it was “likely” that the former SPD politician Gustav Noske (1868-1946) in the assassination of Rosa Luxemburg “his hands in the game” had. Now, however, as the anniversary approached the murder of her former party member, Nahles declined to take responsibility for the assassination of the future KPD co-founder Rosa Luxemburg, despite the call of the Luxembourg researcher Klaus Gietinger and other SPD left intellectual. No wonder,

Nahles anti-Semitic?

 

Rosa Luxemburg was a heroine, women’s rights activist, Jewish and martyr of the November Revolution. So is Nahles anti-Semitic even if she now rejects the responsibility and complicity of the SPD?

Terrifying SPD parallels

 

Frightening parallels can be drawn to this day: Rosa Luxemburg then founded an anti-war group on the attitude of the SPD in August 1914 and, in contrast to the “war-friendly” SPD, remained faithful to her pacifism until her assassination. (5)

What has the SPD to this day failed to adhere to its principles and to vote against arms and war missions? The radical decree and the NATO double decree are also no fame. (6)

Who betrayed us? Social Democrats!

Anyway, with this kind of politics, the SPD will not win votes. “Who betrayed us? Social Democrats, “is a saying that is undoubtedly underlined by a large number of former voters. Especially I would like to recommend the newly published Rosa Luxemburg biography of Ernst Piper. (7) (8) (9)

The freedom of dissenters, but was not in the GDR

 

But even the former GDR has certainly not acted in the sense of Rosa Luxemburg, if she took this woman for herself. Was not it precisely Rosa Luxemburg who demanded “the freedom of the dissident?” No wall construction and stasis methods. Were not GDR citizens, like the songwriter Stefan Krawczyk arrested and deported to the West, because they participated in a demonstration on January 17, 1988 “Liebknecht -Luxembourg”, which called for “freedom for dissenters”? (10) She was a woman of character and charisma, which is lacking today’s women politicians. It was good that many real leftists remembered them and the assassination of Karl Liebknecht and did not forget the Stalin victims. Again, the SPD has missed a chance of the historical work, which sadly connects them with the “Jewish state”, who does not want to know anything about Nakba history, except for his own Holocaust memory. Under these conditions, I plead for a memorial service in the German Bundestag in memory of the Nakba as a result of the Holocaust and the founding of the “Jewish State” on the backs of the Palestinians. As a speaker of the speech, the Israeli historian Prof. Ilan Papp would be considered, author of numerous groundbreaking books on this subject.

So we never forget the resistance as a symbol of liberation.

LIES AND MORE FROM GERMANY

Not to be outdone in credibility


The politics of the lying German “peacemakers”
Evelyn Hecht-Galinski


After reading the interview with the German Foreign Minister Maas in the Badische Zeitung, which appeared on Monday, I could hardly calm down. How can this SPD minister, who went into politics because of Auschwitz, “lie away” so hypocritically about the German role in arms deliveries and foreign deployments? He, who overlooks the genocides in Yemen and Gaza, supports a “gro/co-politics” that cannot be surpassed in Christian-Jewish “value hypocrisy”. 

One could literally feel how his pride, swollen from his swollen chest, was pouring out of him when he swaggered about the new role that Germany finally wants to play as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Not to be outdone in credibility

Maas, who emphasized Germany’s role in foreign missions as a mediator in crises and as a peacemaker “also because of our historical past”, was so euphoric that he simply dropped important points under the table. If he would really act responsibly on the basis of “our past”, he would take the “NEVER RETURN” seriously and act accordingly, but he cannot be outdone in credibility.

With its membership, which began on New Year’s Day, the Federal Republic assumed this role and an “important responsibility for peace and security in the world” for the sixth time. Finally, the Security Council can impose sanctions, send peace missions and approve military operations.

Chancellor Merkel had already set out her ideas about this membership in her New Year’s address. Germany wanted to use it to defend the multilateral world order and for a global crisis management effort. Germany also wants to advocate reform, as the composition of the Security Council is no longer up to date. Like her, Maas affirmed the right to a permanent seat on the Security Council.

Germany will represent Israel’s interests

Germany will therefore soon be back in the “front row of crises”. Worse still, as already threatened in the application, Germany also wants to “represent Israel’s interests”.

Security for Israel means Judaization of Palestine

What this unprecedented promise means, we know and see every day. Merkel and Maas thus oblige the Germans to aid and support the decades-long Israeli occupation policy, the permanent land theft and its wars contrary to international law, and to do everything, as the AA assured at the time, to stand up for the “security” of the “Israeli friends”. What this “security” means for occupied Palestine, we experience very closely, namely expulsion, destruction and the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Germany once supported the “Germanization” of the Nazis and is now actively watching the “Judaization of Palestine”. All this seems to me like a déjà-vu of a horror film running before our eyes.

Generous financial aid from German taxpayers’ money for the “security of Israel

What arrogance. What has Germany actually achieved politically since the “Christian-Zionist” Chancellor Merkel ruled Germany “per order von Mutti” in 2005? Since the beginning of her “regency”, Merkel has repeatedly personally advocated arms deliveries to the “Jewish State”, especially her, who feels committed to the “security of Israel” and connected to the German reason of state. Generous financial aid from our taxpayers’ money, such as the three submarines with 540 million euros, are just one example of so many.

Merkels Gro/Ko has done everything to undermine the criteria for arms exports.

What already began in the 1960s is that the Federal Republic of Germany, along with the USA and France, is one of the most important arms suppliers of the “Jewish State”. In the years 2001 to 2015 alone, arms exports worth 2.07 billion euros were approved to the “Jewish State”. And this contrary to their own (!) guidelines, which prohibit arms exports to crisis areas. Deliveries of warships, tanks and vehicles, highly sensitive technology, electrical equipment, aircraft, chemical substances, ammunition, “light” weapons, explosives and small arms, today still “refined” with submarines, drone cooperations and all the new achievements up to 2018. Merkel-Deutschland has done everything to undermine and soften the EU criteria for arms exports. After all, these are the observance of international obligations, the observance of human rights, the internal situation, the maintenance of peace, security and stability in the region. All these are exactly the attributes that the “Jewish State” certainly does not fulfil, since one looks philosemitically away, as Germany does.

Jewish terrorist incidents against Palestinians have tripled

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz just reported that the “Jewish terror incidents” against Palestinians have tripled. 482 politically motivated crimes committed by Jews, reported last year alone from the illegally occupied West Bank. But Judaistic racism is deliberately concealed here. (1) https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-israeli-jewish-terror-incidents-targeting-palestinians-tripled-in-2018-1.6809367

Philosemitism is the new anti-Semitism

Merkel will not be interested in it, as she is known not to interfere in the “internal affairs” of the “Jewish State”. That is already more than bold, because these “internal affairs” concern a state, which Merkel has rewarded with an unacceptable German reason of state despite its decades-long policy, which is contrary to international law and violates human rights, and which also supports it in solidarity with our sourly earned taxpayers’ money, which flows into this occupying state! Is it really necessary to wonder that the justified criticism of the “Jewish State” and its support is getting louder and louder and has nothing to do with anti-Semitism? One cannot repeat it often enough: “Anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism have nothing to do with each other. However, philosemitism is the new anti-Semitism and Muslims have replaced Jews as enemy images and that should make us all deeply concerned!

There is no peace with the Jewish occupiers

When the election campaign in the “Jewish State” will soon rage, when right-wing extremist slogans will be used to catch votes, when the so-called two-state solution has long since become a dirty word, just as the division of Jerusalem or the return of the illegal settlements and the illegally occupied Golan Heights, Prime Minister Netanyahu has just called on the USA and the international community to finally recognise the recognition of the Golan as Israeli territory, which is a cheeky attempt to repeatedly trample international law underfoot. The transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem was already a first step, a provocation and a slap in the face for possible peace efforts. Let us not kid ourselves any more, there is no peace with the Jewish occupiers and that has never been their aim. Compromises are not on the agenda of the Zionist state reason of Judaisation. There are also no worldwide distractions with accusations of anti-Semitism and defamations against BDS activists or as now by the former Rothschild banker and today’s French President Macron against the “yellow jackets”, with the anti-Semitism club. I would like to recommend reading Werner Rügermer’s book “Die Kapitalisten des 21.Jahrhunderts, PapyRossa Verlag,” which deals extensively with this topic, again on this very subject.

Defending freedom of expression

The CDU/CSU/SPD-Groko will also sell a frigate to Egypt, a country that belongs to the military alliance that is waging war in Yemen, and what a frigate! A country led by a “coup pharaoh” who currently detains more than 60,000 political prisoners, but denies this and leads a reign of terror only comparable to that of the Saudis. When al-Sisi admitted in a CBS interview last week for the first time publicly to have a far-reaching cooperation with the “Jewish State” and a close friendly relationship with it, it was not really a big surprise. But for his people it was. Thereupon the Egyptian US ambassador demanded to prevent the broadcast of the recording, as CBS announced. It was broadcast last Sunday. This is journalism at its best and is painfully missed in Germany. Two German citizens who wanted to visit relatives in Egypt were recently arrested. Others are treated in the same way as the Zionist regime does, they are deported or harassed if they do not correspond to the Zionists’ ideas. Thus political prisoners who courageously stand up for their freedom of political opinion are turned into terrorists and extremists, all in accordance with the “political-ethical values” of the “Anti-Terror Alliance”. It seems that Germany and Europe have now adapted to this immoral business and war ethic of concentrating more and more on business and throwing all scruples overboard. What this means for freedom of opinion is particularly painful for those of us who are still politically committed to the freedom of Palestine. Our primary task should be to defend freedom of expression in Europe.

Not in our name.

While the USA and the “Jewish State” are constantly crying out for sanctions, which are also being enforced, as in the case of Russia and Iran, the Zionist regime can be sure that it will be able to prosecute the people and international crimes without sanctions. The Holocaust makes it possible! However, there are more and more Jewish diaspora citizens, primarily in the USA, who oppose this policy and instrumentalization and say: “Not in our name”! That gives hope.

What a break from the promise of the Gro/Ko, which last year committed itself to a “restrictive arms export policy” that did not want to grant export licences for military equipment to countries directly involved in the Yemen war.
(3) https://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/ausland/bundesregierung-bewilligt-kriegsschiff-export-nach-aegypten-15969117.html

Since the Gro/Ko took office in March 2018, the German government has approved ten arms deals with Saudi Arabia worth a total of 254 million euros. Further arms went to the other countries of the Saudi Arabia-led military alliance. These figures are derived from the answer given by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (Altmeier) in September 2018 to an inquiry by the Green member of the Bundestag Omid Nouripour.

So if this is the German role as a peacemaker, as it is today played by the Gro/Ko by unscrupulously supplying arms to authoritarian regimes, it is a shameful breach of the promise in the coalition agreement. Once again, the SPD has betrayed its principles. Instead of bringing himself into play as the coming chancellor, SPD vice-chancellor Scholz, like SPD chairman Nahles, would be well advised, with a more than pitiful election prognosis of currently about 15%, to go once into the humility of the opposition and think about how to win back voters. Certainly not like that!

While in Yemen the genocide continues and is legitimized with the UN resolution 2216, and while in Egypt and Saudi Arabia the human rights crimes have reached indescribable proportions, Germany tries to emphasize a peacemaker role in order to supply German arms companies with orders, everything just like in the cover-up of the criminal machinations of the car industry, always in service for the companies. It was precisely the courting of industry that went wrong once before, in the “Millennial Reich”.

So it is more and more important and urgent to “resist the beginnings” and “NEVER RETURN” powerfully fill with life for the freedom of Palestine.

FIGHT OR PERISH!

In 2018, there were a record number of Palestinian deaths (killings!) And injuries. Some 295 Palestinians were murdered and more than 29,000 were injured by the “most moral” of all “defense soldiers”.

Who does not fight and does not fight back, has already lost

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

Let me draw my sobering record at the turn of the year. So unfortunately I have to say that all my worst fears and forecasts arrived. As in my 2012 chosen book title “The eleventh commandment – Israel may do anything”.Could there still be an increase between 2012 and 2018? In fact, there was and there is. Just the year that celebrated such bombastic and unbearable “round holidays” as the memory of the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the “Jewish state”, based on the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland of Palestine. Therefore, we Germans should have a special need to work for these displaced persons of the Nakba. After all, we Germans know what dictatorship, oppression, walls and occupation mean. Especially 2018 was such a terrible year,

 

In 2018, there were a record number of Palestinian deaths (killings!) And injuries. Some 295 Palestinians were murdered and more than 29,000 were injured by the “most moral” of all “defense soldiers”. That is the highest (!) Death toll in a year, the previous one. Since the Gaza blockade and OCHA documentation since 2005. More than 60 percent of the death toll (martyrs!), 180 Palestinians and about 79 percent of the injured – that’s more than 23,000 victims – are in connection with the protests against the illegal closure of the Gaza Strip in the “Great March of Return” Return march “to see. These people only claim their legal right of resistance, which puts them in mortal danger on the part of the Zionist occupiers.

 

More and more power for the right-wing alliance

 

Since the Netanyahu regime has been in power, attacks by Judaic settlers have also increased, bolstered by massive government support. Eventually they will thank you in the upcoming new elections. Through new party foundations such as the “New Rights” of “Education Settler Minister” Bennett and Justice Minister Schaked wins the right-wing alliance more and more power. The clever handling of Netanyahu, who also plans to lower the 3.25 percent hurdle, makes it easier for smaller right-wing parties to enter parliament. Likewise, he means to get rid of corruption processes and to put the word “peace” forever shelved and to establish Jerusalem as the “eternally” undivided capital of a “Jewish state”. Thanks to the decomposition of a functioning left, these goals seem ever closer in the land where racism flourishes. So the “chosen ones” have a self-chosen regime to their liking. Migration only for Jews, while Palestinians and asylum seekers, mainly blacks, are demonized as criminal invaders and infiltrants.

 

While Bibi Netanyahu and Ms. Sara are pampered on the beach in Rio and their dirty laundry is washed and after the election comes out of the political washing machine as desired, and therefore the filth of process dangers and prosecutions moves into ever more distant, everything seems to be The Netanyahu are doing better than ever.

 

Again and again the Netanyahu regime, under reference to “security for the Jewish people”, continues the illegal occupation and the land, sea and air blockade, treating the Palestinians as hostages and prisoners in their own country and leaving them alone Exceptional leave. Thus, there were 35 percent fewer exit permits than in the restrictive year of 2017. So while the Zionist occupation regime continues to brutalize the Gaza concentration camp, and continues to drive the illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories, in a brutality that should finally shake us up, because it reminds of Nazi methods.

 

Comparison with Nazi methods becomes more and more necessary

 

Even the poet Erich Fried, whom I valued, aptly described these comparisons in many of his political poems. As sad as it is, this comparison is becoming ever more necessary and consistent with the sad facts that unfold in illegally occupied Palestine. Again and again it is pointed out that these comparisons are inappropriate and can not be made, if only because of our past. I think this is wrong, because a “comparison” does not mean “equating”, but it is necessary to emphasize the catastrophic conditions in illegally occupied Palestine. It is precisely from our past that we have this responsibility. If the saying “never again” ever has an authorization, comparisons – mind you: no equation – absolutely necessary. A people that a Zionist regime brutally oppresses, enslaves, expels and humiliates us, punishes us with house demolitions, clan detention and deprivation of rights, we must finally rush to the aid. A regime that in its ruthlessness and recklessness does not stop at old people, women, children and the disabled, and tries to distract them with laughing hasbara propaganda and tries to liberate itself with lobbying campaigns, has long lost all support.

 

Free discussion is now criminalized

 

Thanks to BDS, support is shrinking and people are being shaken awake.Thanks to the sophisticated scientific work of the Israel lobby, targeted at governments and political parties as well as the media, it is becoming ever stronger. Exemplary was the journalistic ZDF “Mainzelmännchenleistung” Christmas show with Markus Lanz about Bethlehem, where neither the dividing Apartheid wall, nor the word occupation played a role or a word about it was lost. A case for the Press Council !. A sad example of so many and against that we have to defend ourselves. How is that possible?Because there is still the targeted propaganda that has made every discussion that concerns the word Jew, Israel or the Holocaust a taboo. Any free discussion is now criminalized and is blocked as anti-Semitism.Everything to the detriment of freedom of expression. I have written before, when only the thoughts are free, then we move closer to a low point of democracy. This right to freedom of expression is a high good to preserve. Even if one does not share the prescribed official line of the Israel lobby and for good reason. Why does this lobby keep it from ever coming up for discussion? Because the Zionists and their supporters fear nothing more than the truth. Since the facts speak for us and truth is with us, we have nothing to fear. Even if one does not share the prescribed official line of the Israel lobby and for good reason. Why does this lobby keep it from ever coming up for discussion? Because the Zionists and their supporters fear nothing more than the truth. Since the facts speak for us and truth is with us, we have nothing to fear. Even if one does not share the prescribed official line of the Israel lobby and for good reason. Why does this lobby keep it from ever coming up for discussion? Because the Zionists and their supporters fear nothing more than the truth. Since the facts speak for us and truth is with us, we have nothing to fear.

 

Silence endangers democracy

 

The danger of fearful silence is more than democracy endangering and has already assumed dangerous proportions. Directly connected state media, as we know them only from dictatorships, are becoming more and more normal in Germany. Politicians, who are only directed by lobbyists, are the norm, in a Bundestag that more represents the interests of the economy and the arms industry than one could ever have imagined. Meanwhile, it seems that politicians are turning their attention more to whether they are accommodated after their departure from the economy or are housed by their parties on lucrative posts. While supply thinking is in the foreground,In the supposedly rich Germany, large sections of the population with low minimum wages and low pensions as well as housing shortages are fighting for their bare survival. In this connection, I would like to point out once more to one of the most important books of the year for me, “The Capitalists of the 21st Century” by Werner Rügemer.

 

Muslims are the Jews of today

 

Since it could not be avoided that we are the United States more and more similar and people turn away from politics more and more and then land in the clutches of extreme right-wing Pied Piper or crazy dealer. Everything is reminiscent of bygone times, but under different circumstances. Once again, people, Muslims and Islam are being overpowered with hatred and prejudice. It seems like a valve has been found to once again have a culprit on which you can dump your own problems and failures. What used to be the Jews are now the Muslims. That just so many Jews, spurred on by the Israel lobby, take part in this activity is particularly reprehensible. It really seems that these circles have made it

 

Targeted Holocaust abuse

 

As a longtime dedicated campaigner for the freedom of Palestine, I would like to point out once again that it is becoming increasingly important to criticize this “Jewish state”, which has so far renounced all democratic values ​​and human rights, by all legitimate means. And also with the harshest formulations. A state and its Jewish politicians, who so vehemently invoke religion, so deliberately abuse Judaism and the Holocaust and have built a Zionist state rationale of Judaization, can no longer be supported. If that does not finally grasp the German policy across all parties and does not start to rethink, then it makes itself guilty again.You can not repeat it often enough.

 

With the David Star drone “Jewish-Christian” murderous cooperation

 

Only 73 years after the liberation of Auschwitz and more than 27 million killed citizens from the Soviet Union, Germany has the obligation to interfere, but not as it is always wanted by “our” politicians. They mean that we can and must finally get involved again when it comes to the supposed upholding of human rights and combating terrorism. What are these falsehoods! Meanwhile, Germany is doing its utmost to be at the forefront in the League of War Powers and the Armaments Industry. We are getting better and better, to say goodbye to the previously held up maxim “German soil should never go out of war again”. Where that brings us, we see in Afghanistan, Mali and many other theaters of war, where we actively participate and do not even shrink from with Awacs education for the right “murder targets”, especially civilians. While the Bundeswehr has more and more to do with mentally broken combatants and returnees, who return home traumatized with the incurable PTSD, because they can not stand it, what they have seen and made themselves guilty of trying the “Federal Ursel” of the Leyen does everything to hush up these conditions with all means and bought “advisers”, which I hope will soon bring you a committee of inquiry and resignation. In fact, the Bundeswehr in particular has started such a close cooperation with the “most moral of defense armies”, as well as with the Star of David drone, a “Jewish-Christian” murderous cooperation that makes the worst fears awake.

 

Nevertheless, I wish all readers, supporters and friends for the freedom of Palestine a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful year 2019. May we bring our wishes and demands closer to the path of Palestinian freedom.

 

For a fighting new year – according to our slogan: “Who does not fight and does not resist, has already lost”. TO EXIST TO RESIST

The poor do not realize

WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY ABOUT THE OCCUPATION?

When large parts of the population celebrate the birth of Jesus, a similar, sad fate is repeated.

Besieged Bethlehem: Jesus’ birthplace crippled by Israeli occupation …

WHAT ZIONISM REPEATS EVERY YEAR …

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

When large parts of the population celebrate the birth of Jesus, a similar, sad fate is repeated. In the country where Jesus was born, the harassment and human rights crimes against Palestinians, whether Muslim or Christian, are becoming more and more cruel. It is precisely these celebrations that the Zionist system of oppression uses for ever new criminal and murderous actions. In the shadow of the supposedly peaceful Advent season, we are witnessing a wave of violence that does not shy away from the murder of children and the disabled. Since the US government under the leadership of US President Trump and Shadow Secretary of State “Jared-Koscher Kushner-Nostra-Secretary of State” has been in power, all the floodgates have been opened in order to enforce its “America and Jewish First” policy unhindered. Who is surprised that Jewish citizens who do not distance themselves from this policy are becoming more and more unpopular? And that’s not anti-Semitism! A state which calls itself the “Jewish State” and which only 73 years after the end of World War II and Auschwitz liberation is becoming increasingly similar to Nazi Germany must no longer be celebrated as the “only” democracy in the Middle East.

Apartheid state abuses the Holocaust

No, this apartheid state is now miles away from all democratic practices and abuses the Holocaust and its victims for its own terrible purposes. Everything is demanded and justified by the uniqueness of the terrible genocide of 6 million Jews. It cannot be covered up or denied by anything and will always be remembered as one of the most terrible crimes in world history. And yes, I say it consciously, as ONE of the most terrible. But what about the many other victims of tyranny before and after? What are we experiencing in Yemen and Gaza, what guilt have the colonial countries like Great Britain, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Australia and the USA brought upon themselves? Germany, too, has refused to acknowledge the genocide of the Herero and to make reparations. This enumeration would have to be continued for pages and in detail. But is it not noticeable that only one lobby group has managed to assert its claim to sole representation as a victim group?

This “light among nations”, as the “Jewish State” likes to call itself, is a dark and cruel example of how to conceal crimes with flowery names. Again and again I remember a trip as a youth to Israel, where I noticed this state already then in its inhuman arrogance. How one propagandistically boasted about it for “blooming landscapes” that Jews had built on “Arabian desert soil”. And not a word about the fact that this land, robbed by the Palestinian natives, came from the Palestinians and that these approximately 750,000 displaced or murdered Palestinians had worked this land with their hands and built their houses on it. If the Jewish occupiers always boast of having planted forests in these areas, it is a criminal greenwash of land theft, occupation and expulsion to eradicate the Palestinian roots. The Zionist occupying regimes knew only too well how to persuade German politicians and parties in particular to support these “death forests”. The former German SPD Foreign Minister and current Federal President Steinmeier and recently Dietmar Bartsch, chairman of the left-wing parliamentary group in the Bundestag, have been active as “Zionist gardeners”, and the forests of the German Länder also underline this policy. While one denigrates meanwhile Christmas trees in the Jewish state as dangerous anti-Jewish symbol and forests die here here with us in Germany, the Zionist afforestation is brought to bloom.

Aim of the Netanyahu regime: Judaization of Palestine until the Final Solution

Desperate Palestinians try to enforce their legal right of return to their homeland – guaranteed by international law – in order to escape the desperate situation, and are ruthlessly shot. The Netanyahu regime, like many other governments before it, has masterfully presented itself as a threatened country and concerned only with security. In the shadow of these “security lies” they can, thanks to the hypocritical community of states, continue the Judaization of Palestine until the final solution.

However, we should all be concerned that more and more Jewish citizens are being recruited into the diaspora (Sayanim!) in order to actively participate in the scientifically accompanied propaganda lies and defamation campaigns. How many three-digit millions were provided for this Hasbara (propaganda)? Especially at a time when the BDS movement in the

However, we should all be concerned that more and more Jewish citizens are being recruited into the diaspora (Sayanim!) in order to actively participate in the scientifically accompanied propaganda lies and defamation campaigns. How many three-digit millions were provided for this Hasbara (propaganda)? Especially in times when the BDS movement is getting stronger and stronger and more and more prominent, this propaganda is intensified. I don’t know of any other political lobby like the Israel lobby, which is so masterly at abusing its former victim role so blatantly.

Just like any politician who visits the “Jewish State” no matter how often, is sent to Yad Vashem to complete his obligatory visit to the Holocaust Memorial. After that he has to “purify” everything that the hosts of the racist apartheid state put before him. It makes no difference whether it is right-wing extremists and racist guests who come to visit. From the Philippine dictator Duterte to Netanyahu friend Victor Orban, many welcome guests have already visited Netanyahu. All three are connected by their blatant Islamophobia. Will it soon be the new right-wing extremist Brazilian President Bolsonario or the Italian right-wing extremist Prime Minister Savini, who during his visit once called Hezbollah a terrorist organization and met with the former right-wing extremist Trump whisperer Steve Bannon to work on a new “right-wing movement”? They all belong to this kind of “terrorist politicians” who promote precisely the policy that follows the Zionist policy of the “Jewish State”, which first stirs up the violence and hatred that then leads to resistance. They are all welcome by their Jewish friends and fit so well into the fascist-Zionist system. The only thing missing is that Yad Vashem issues a “kosher” card for these racists, which makes them kosher and confirms them in their politics.

There is no right of return for Jews to stolen land!

While politicians who criticize the “Jewish state” for its crimes as well as foreign boycott activists and supporters are denied entry, people are happy about every right-wing politician visit. While Palestinians are denied entry, Jews from all over the world are encouraged to “return to their Promised Land” and to Alliah. The Alliah is linguistically “ascension”, but in reality it is a descent, after immigration. How is it nevertheless possible that this unbelievable state has been consolidated for over 70 years and is now almost accepted as normality? There is no right of return for Jews to stolen land!

The “Jewish State” has managed that almost all of its Jewish citizens are still proud of this oppressor state and show solidarity with these occupation crimes. It cannot be repeated often enough: This state wrongly presumes to speak for ALL Jews worldwide!

Jesus was the first persecuted Jew to be denounced as an enemy by his brothers in faith. What are the parallels to today? Critical Jews who openly speak out against human and international law crimes, illegal occupation and apartheid racism are marginalized by Jews and Israel supporters as anti-Semitic, only 73 years after Auschwitz liberation. This violates the Basic Law and human rights. This particularly perfidious form of anti-Semitism should be punished by the reasons of state.

It must end with the defamation of democratic Jews who are committed to international law and freedom, including for Palestinians, while Jews who show solidarity with Israeli crimes that have been going on for decades are courted! Jesus would certainly lead the BDS movement and certainly show solidarity with the Palestinians. He and his family knew the feeling of being displaced persons and migrants. This is forgotten by the politicians who call themselves “Christian” and who always show solidarity with the “Jewish State”. Are we not dealing again with a terrible selection? We can defend ourselves against it by steadfastly continuing to insist on respect for human rights based on clear facts, as opposed to Zionist propaganda lies.

Misery in Gaza reminiscent of concentration camps and ghettos

How can a Jewish state, which repeatedly refers to the Holocaust as a justification for legalizing its crimes, expropriate another people for decades, drive them from their land, keep them in a concentration camp without feeling any scruples? How can you deprive so many people of everything, without rights and freedom? Children and young people prefer to be shot as resistance fighters in order to escape hopelessness or end up committing suicide. They take German (!!) Tramadol to put themselves in a dream world and escape the terrible reality. The misery of the people in Gaza is so indescribable that it should remind Jews of concentration camps and ghettos. If there had been more resistance, more courage and more sincerity during the Nazi period, we would have been spared a lot.

No, it is not the Palestinians who are terrorizing, it is the Jewish state terrorists and their willing helpers. The Germans in particular should reflect and stand up and defend themselves against this philosemitism, which has replaced anti-Semitism. How can the systematic violation of international law and human rights be watched and legitimized without contradiction? With the Holocaust, which gives Jews a carte blanche for injustice suffered? There is no justification for these crimes. Especially the glut of the new anti-Semitism commissioners should deal with this topic, philosemitism and Islam hatred.

Every year the Christian world again celebrates the birth of Jesus, a Jew who was a revolutionary and courageously stood up for his ideas, and who dared to contradict the Jewish high priests, for which he finally paid with his life. Here, too, it was non-Jewish helpers who carried out the death sentence. On the third Sunday of Advent German scouts brought the “light of peace” from Bethlehem to Munich, during an ecumenical service in the Cathedral of Our Lady and with numerous participation of Catholic and Protestant parishes. Under the motto “Peace needs diversity – for a tolerant society” a spectacle was organized that can no longer be surpassed in hypocrisy.

Against the dark light of oppression the shining example in the fight for justice, peace and freedom!

The “light of peace” from the illegally occupied Bethlehem has nothing to do with peace, but is a dark light of oppression. It is precisely the Protestant Church that has excluded people who are fighting against the occupation of Palestine and for its people. The hypocritical message of alleged tolerance borders on brainwashing young Christian people of good will. The Bishop of Bavaria, Heinrich Bedford-Strohm and his unbearable grin, the “altar boys” Reinhard Cardinal Marx and the Greek Orthodox Archpriest Apostolos Malamoussis, all of them horribly deaf to the outcry of the Christian Palestinians to their brothers and sisters in faith – all laid down in the Kairos-Palästina-Document from the year 2009(!), which has as its goal “the end of the occupation of Palestine by Israel”. This “cry of hope, where there is no hope”, hits on the deaf ears of these ecclesiastical “holy” appearances, because they prefer to cower before the occupying power and its willing helpers. They did not even have the courage to invite a Palestinian Christian representative. Why do you think? Because he would certainly not have watched speechlessly and would have had much to report at home about the despondency of the German church leaders.

Jesus as a human being, beyond Christian or religious references, should be a shining example to all of us who hear the “cry of hope” full of empathy and who work for an end to the decades-long occupation of Palestine in the struggle for justice, peace and freedom, every year again.

I wish all readers a Merry Christmas.

NOBODY STANDS IN THE WAY OF ZION

The “Jewish State” is now so sure, thanks to the West, especially the German hypocrites, that nobody gets in its way any more, and thus acts more audaciously and uninhibitedly.

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO SUFFER PERSECUTION FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE 

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

More than two years ago I wrote a comment with the title “When the Israel lobby rings twice”, but today it doesn’t quite fit anymore. In fact, the lobby has infiltrated German public life. They sit in almost all forums, parties, organizations. And in the media they are constantly on the lookout and consult editorial offices and broadcasters, so that everything goes according to their wishes and criticism of Israel is immediately stopped and the critics are silenced. The influence of this lobby and its demands are unprecedented. Why did the Merkel-Gro/Ko hide until today that during the last German-Israeli government consultations Prime Minister Netanyahu handed over a paper to Chancellor Merkel urging the German government to stop support for non-governmental organizations that allegedly “promote anti-Israeli activities”? We know only too well what this means and who. After all, it now affects anyone who dares to stand up for Palestine’s freedom and against Israeli policies that violate international law.

Netanyahu regime: one of the most influential lobbyists

The “Jewish State” is now so sure, thanks to the West, especially the German hypocrites, that nobody gets in its way any more, and thus acts more audaciously and uninhibitedly. The Merkel government has succeeded in making the Netanyahu regime one of the most influential lobbyists, who have now established themselves in all areas of public life and smuggled in their helpers (Sayanim).

The Zionist spell also hit the Jewish Museum in Berlin, which had ventured an exhibition with “Welcome to Israel”, which presents the three monotheistic religions and their effects on the lives of the people in Israel, rich in facts, with examples, documents and pictures.

This exhibition shows both the more than one-sided pro-Israel film “24 Hours Jerusalem” as well as far too sparse Palestinian perspectives, and shows the clear violation of international law of the “Jewish State” with the annexed Jerusalem as the “eternally undivided” capital of a “Jewish State”. Thus this exhibition is “balanced” and leaves room for discussion.

However, the Netanyahu regime tries to prevent these “free spaces” and discussions by all means. The “Jewish State” wants to prevent anything that appears to leave the Palestinians a place in illegally occupied Palestine. Everything that is reported about the legitimate claim of the displaced and occupied people is a thorn in their side, because they know all too well about their crimes and their guilt. What is now being done with the example of the Jewish Museum is only a metaphor for the new Jewish anti-Semitism, which also does not stop at Jews and Jewish organizations, museums and institutions, as long as they are not really connected with the “Jewish State” or the Central Council of Jews.

Interference is no longer acceptable and can be prevented by all means.

In fact, the Jewish Museum is one of the European and Berlin tourist magnets, three quarters of which is financed by public funds, i.e. German taxpayers’ money, and has nothing to do with the Jewish community or the Central Council. It is still a house that presents itself freely in its decisions, but after this renewed serious attempt by the Israel lobby and the State of Israel to cut the funds for the Jewish Museum, it shows how much this freedom is to be curtailed. In fact, the Netanyahu regime now denigrates all democratic but Israel-critical NGOs as “terror supporters” and thus includes the Jewish Museum. By the way, it’s not the NGO’s who are working for an end of the occupation that are terrorist, but a state that commits state terror and ruthlessly commits crimes of peoples and human rights – and this under the eyes of the “western community of values” that don’t want to see the abysmal injustice. If the museum had been under Israeli-Jewish rule, it probably would not have come this far, or it would have been closed long ago. This example shows how far the Judaization and Israelization of Germany has advanced in the meantime. This form of interference is no longer acceptable and can be prevented by all means. If even the German Foreign Ministry, under a confessing friend of Israel, the “Auschwitz Minister” Maas, was beaten to death with the demand for a “clarifying” meeting in Berlin, then the point has been reached to finally think about how relations with the “Jewish State” and the occupying forces are going to be regulated.

The German government should finally question whether and for how long it will continue to accept the Jewish lobby interventions in the freedom of expression and the fundamental rights of culture and politics, the Jewish Museum, the Berlin Film Festival, as particularly serious examples. If cities and municipalities, supported by court rulings, BDS campaigns or speakers who support them, no longer provide rooms, then the question must be asked whether this is still covered by our free basic order and by the Basic Law. After all, BDS is a democratic movement, as opposed to illegal occupation, expulsion and apartheid. German courts have already banned critics’ mouths and served a dictatorial regime. This should not be forgotten when it comes to “never again” and the Holocaust remembrance culture. When Federal President Steinmeier calls on the Germans in his Christmas speech to speak to each other again, then he should finally set a good example and also finally speak to the people critical of Israel and BDS supporters and enter into a dialogue. Or does he shy away from this for lack of arguments?

At Christmas I would also have liked the Christian church representatives of Bedford-Strohm, Cardinal Wölki and Marx not only to criticize the policies of the AfD, but also to finally criticize the Jewish “brothers and sisters” who oppress the Palestinian Christians in the “Jewish State”, not to mention the Muslims. Ecumenism is only lived when Palestinian representatives are invited to Germany and can report here on their terrible situation, if they are allowed to leave Gaza or the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem at all. That would be a Christian duty. But so I ask myself, how can alleged Christians agree with themselves and their faith to remain silent about these crimes?

“Blessed are those who suffer persecution for the sake of justice.”

“If hate is sown instead of thinking about better protection against violence, one must take a clear stand and oppose it.” These sentences against the AfD fit precisely to the events in occupied Palestine. In fact, it means to oppose when a “Jewish state” illegally occupies and oppresses another people. Jesus in particular would have opposed it, but his personnel on earth do not want to hear about it. These church representatives and Christian politicians unfortunately show themselves to be hypocritical and prefer to refer to a “Christian-Jewish” tradition and its values that came into being only after the Holocaust. But what kind of values do they support? The faithful of the religious communities should consider whether they should still support the religious communities or not rather reflect and act in the sense of Jesus. Already in the Gospel of Matthew 5:10 we read: “Blessed are those who suffer persecution for the sake of righteousness. If this does not also apply to the many Palestinian martyrs. (3)

Let me also remind you of the resistance fighter of the Warsaw Ghetto who died on Sunday. Simcha Rotem was honoured as a hero by Netanyahu and Israeli President Rivlin. Kazik Ratajazer, his real name, was able to escape from the destroyed Warsaw ghetto with other comrades after heavy fighting against the Germans in 1943 through a sewer and managed to immigrate to the “Jewish State”. This courageous fighter is rightly appreciated, but by the same people who today denigrate and fight courageous Palestinian resistance fighters as terrorists, who do exactly what the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto did in those days. The Jews fought against the Nazis, and the Palestinians fight against their occupiers. If Jewish occupation today drives a people out of its land, colonizes, imprisons, harasses and mercilessly murderously tries to break the resistance with all violence, then it is about such heroes who are to be appreciated as such. The “Millennial Nazi Empire” lasted 12 terrible years, the Zionist occupation of Palestine already 70 years. But also their time will come.

So I wish all friends, readers and comrades-in-arms a good slide into a peaceful year 2019, and let us stand up together for the freedom of Palestine “from the River to the Sea, Palestine has to be free”.

RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM PALESTINE

Mahatma Gandhi correctly identified seven blunders of the world: wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, politics without principle.”

Thoughts at 3 AM

Compiled by Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD

We face unprecedented challenges that require unprecedented human
responses.Here are some now well characterized challenges that require not
so-well discussed solutions: 1) human population shooting up from 7 billion
to 10 billion soon, 2) consumption of non-renewable resources at an all
time high, 3) climate change accelerating thanks to human activities, 4)
water shortage in most of the planet, 5) politicians and other greedy
individuals pushing wars and arms-deals that ends-up in  genocides like
what is happening in Gaza and Yemen. We witness the mass of refugees
walking north towards the US border or those refugees in Gaza being shot at
the border as they try to return to their homes and lands taken from them
by force in Palestine in 1948. These and others resulted from a combination
of these factors (though mostly politics driven factors) but they are only
a harbinger of much worse things to come. Estimates range from 100 to 500
million "climate refugees" in the next two decades. The violent/repressive
response of those in political power will only exacerbate the problems.
Borders, racism, and repressive politics as usual will no longer contain
hundreds of millions (nay billions) of people who have no or scarce access
to clean water, food, healthcare or education.

How do we address this? First we must understand what faces us honesty.
Killing and dismembering one journalist or using white phosphorous ion
civilian populations of Yemen and Gaza are symptoms of something far deeper
and far more troubling.  Second we must rebel against the status quo while
in parallel work to create innovative alternatives. Each of us can and must
start to address these challenges. It is hard work and it is not easy.
Burying our head in the proverbial sand will no longer be feasible, We
can't be neutral on a moving train. The work we are doing locally (e.g. at
palestinenature.org) needs to go to a much higher level and far more
urgently than most people think. We must at least start a more serious
conversation and apply more serious work towards solutions. It is perhaps
the last test of our humanity. The choices are stark. We can continue down
this unsustainable path that could destroy us and our planet. Or we can
push hard to get our act together quickly as fellow human beings to care
for each other and for this planet. The stakes were never more stark.

Mahatma Gandhi correctly identified seven blunders of the world: wealth
without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character,
commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without
sacrifice, politics without principle."

Trump channels Netanyahu at the U.N., as his top policy-makers meet with Iran-war-mongers

As you surely know, Donald Trump channeled Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. He mentioned Iran 14 times (compared to 0 for Russia and 4 for Israel) and all but called for regime change. Iran’s “brutal regime” was financing the destruction of Syria, its leaders “sow chaos, death and destruction,” its “corrupt dictatorship” should be isolated by the world.

This sly appeal was right out of the Netanyahu script:

[W]e ask all nations to support Iran’s people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny.

The media made a lot of Trump’s sovereignty doctrine–  nationalism and “patriotism” over “globalism” and multilateralism–  but even those remarks had a pro-Israel cast. Trump was talking about the US rejection of two Israel-bugaboos, the UN Human Rights Council and International Criminal Court.

As far as America is concerned, the ICC has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy, and no authority…. We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy….America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism…

There is an obvious reason Trump is parroting Netanyahu. Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam are the largest funders of Republicans, ponying up $55 million for the midterm elections. Trump needs Sheldon Adelson now more than ever, and Adelson has a simple agenda, Israel. Adelson backs Netanyahu, pushed the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem, opposes negotiations with Palestinians, and called on President Obama to nuke Iran. Adelson wanted Trump to tear up the Iran deal, and he did.

The New York Times ran a good piece on Adelson’s influence last week, saying Sheldon and wife Miriam “have emerged as the biggest and potentially most influential contributors to Republicans in the midterm season,” and that the Adelsons have gotten “their most cherished priorities” from the “unflinchingly pro-Israel” Trump administration. The Times even ran a letter saying the Adelsons bought the presidency.

But it is disappointing that no one in the mainstream press is connecting the Trump administration’s theatrical anti-Iran push in New York yesterday with the rightwing Israel lobby, which seeks a war with Iran.

The agenda is clear. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, addressed an Adelson shop, the organization United Against Nuclear Iran, in NY yesterday, and it was a war party at the Westin Grand Central Hotel. Bolton issued a bellicose warning to Iran to great applause: “If you cross us, our allies, or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay.” As Eli Clifton and Derek Davison reported ahead of time:

According to the organization’s guest list, in attendance will be virtually every prominent official both in the United States and overseas who has pushed for a military confrontation with Iran—a veritable who’s who of warmongers…

Those guests included leading officials from countries that want a war with Iran: Yossi Cohen, director of the Israeli Mossad; ambassadors from Bahrain and the UAE; and the foreign minister of Saudi Arabia. Not to mention American hawks Dennis Ross and Joe Lieberman (the UANI chair), and a French one, Bernard Henri-Levy.

Bolton and Pompeo address warmongers at the Westin Grand Central Hotel, UANI conference.

Like Trump and the Republicans, UANI has been funded by Adelson. “Sheldon and Miriam Adelson… contributed $500,000 in 2013,” Clifton reports–  the same year Adelson called on Obama to nuke Iran.

UANI’s biggest funder is Thomas Kaplan, a billionaire investor who supports liberal and Jewish causes, such as wildlife conservation and the 92d Street Y. Five years ago, Kaplan introduced Benjamin Netanyahu at the 92d Street Y in fulsome terms –hailing the prime minister as the leader of “our people.”

It is… with great humility that we welcome the prime minister of Israel. On his shoulders rests the heavy decisions of  not only making a just peace, but confronting a fanatical regime that threatens his people, our people. We are inspired by your leadership, sustained by your faith, and truly honored by your presence.

UANI is closely aligned with Israel. Its board includes Tamir Pardo, a former Mossad director, and Irwin Cotler, the Canadian parliamentarian who is obsessed with BDS. Its contracts include $700,000 to Israeli consulting groups.

And you wonder why the media can’t touch the Israel lobby story; they’d have to talk about national interest, dual loyalty, whatever you want to call it. Sheldon Adelson once said he wished he’d served in the Israeli army, not the American one. Or as Obama said when he was trying to get the Iran deal through, only one country in the world was against it, Israel, and he’d be abrogating his constitutional duty if he didn’t work for the deal.

I recognize that Prime Minister Netanyahu disagrees — disagrees strongly… I believe he is wrong.  I believe the facts support this deal.  I believe they are in America’s interest and Israel’s interest.  And as President of the United States, it would be an abrogation of my constitutional duty to act against my best judgment simply because it causes temporary friction with a dear friend and ally.  I do not believe that would be the right thing to do for the United States.  I do not believe it would be the right thing to do for Israel.

Obama said the only alternative to the deal was war.

And Trump owes war-mongering Adelson everything; and he tore up the Iran deal. And the media “has largely supported Trump’s fictitious view” of the deal.

That’s the real issue here. Trump has surrounded himself with warmongers. Though yesterday he tweeted that he is sure that Iranian president Hasan Rouhani is an “absolutely lovely man,” his militant speech at the U.N. was scripted; and the script is what we all have to worry about. Once again neoconservatives are scheming for the invasion of a sovereign country in the Middle East, and it would be helpful if the press described the agenda.

DILEMMAS EXTRAORDINAIRE

What will Israel do with 7 million Palestinians, expected to double their current population in 3 – 4 decades?

 Israel’s existential dilemma
 
By Khalid Amayreh

What will Israel do with 7 million Palestinians, expected to double their current population in 3 – 4 decades?
 
Observers of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict have come to realize that Palestinian demographic growth within mandatory Palestine (Israel proper, the West Bank and Gaza Strip) now constitutes the most formidable strategic challenge facing the Jewish state and the Zionist movement as a whole. One Israeli strategic expert called this challenge “the mother of all problems and nightmares facing Israel.”
 
Israel doesn’t ignore the problem, of course, despite its awesome military might and the almost unlimited and unrestricted American backing. Thus the Palestinian demographic “threat” is a constant subject of often acrimonious arguments involving politicians, strategic planners as well as intellectuals, statisticians and  demographers.
 
Never the less, Israeli officials and spokespeople, especially those associated with the Benjamin Netanyahu government’s  harsh  policies toward the Palestinians, are often seen trying to dismiss the issue as just another banal challenge facing the Jewish state.
 
Israeli routinely publishes the latest demographic forecasts on the eve of major Jewish holidays, such as the Jewish New year. However these studies seem far from reliable as statistical manipulation of these studies raises the eyebrows of evenhanded professionals. For example The Palestinian population of Israel is subcategorized into Muslim Arabs,  Christian Arabs Bedouin Arabs, Druze Arabs, and Circassians.  No similar categorization  is listed or mentioned, even fleetingly, when dealing with the Jewish population, although there are many distinctive Jewish groups such as Eastern  Orthodox  Jews,  Haridi ultra-Orthodox, Western Ashkenazi Orthodox, Reform Jews, Conservative Jews,  Chabad Jews, etc.
 
It is widely believed that the ultimate aim of this tendentious manipulation is to present Jews as a united demographic bloc while portraying the Palestinians as a divided  and  heterogeneous population with many sects and sub-sects.
 
More to the point, Israel from time to time publishes politically motivated  reports about the growth of settler population in the West Bank as opposed to a purportedly dwindling Palestinian birth rate. 
 
Notwithstanding, the naked demographic facts seem so imposing and virtually udisputable   that no person valuing rectitude would deny.
 
Predictably, these facts leave a very narrow margin for optimism for Israeli expansionists and advocates of Greater Israel or the so-called biblical irredentism.
 
Last year, a group of veteran military officers raised large signs in Tel Aviv reading: “Israel is about to have an Arab majority” and “ when will Jews become a minority in the only Jewish state in the world”? The protesters, who included prominent former military commanders, also accused the Israel’s right wing government of taking the country to a bi-national state.”
 
The protesters were by no means phobic and the slogans they raised were by no means hyperbolic. They were simply voicing the views of many silent Israelis. And the driving motivation behind their activity was by no means their concern  for the Palestinians and their human or civil  rights but rather their concern for the future of Israel and Zionism.
 
Israeli intellectual Uri Avnery, who died this week at the age og 94, believes the government is hiding vital demographic data, pertaining to Jewish and Palestinian demography, from the Israeli public
 
Avnery pointed out in one of his articles several months ago that the  Palestinian population between the Mediterranean and the River Jordan was either equal to or slightly higher than the Jewish population.
 
For its part, the Ramallah-based Palestinian Bureau of Statistics, a usually reliable think-tank, reported a few months ago that the Palestinian population in the West Bank. Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and Israel proper was  nearly equal to the Israeli Jewish population in the same territories.
 
Palestinians will double their population in 3-4 decades
 
Palestinian as well as Israeli demographers calculate that Palestinians in mandatory Palestine will double their current population  figures within 3-4 decades due to their significantly  higher birth rate. In other words, Palestinians, baring an unthinkable  Israeli feat like expulsion  or some sort of genocide,  would become a numerical majority and Israeli Jews would become a numerical minority.
 
In addition, it is projected that in 50 years from now, Israel will be surrounded by 800 million-1 billion Arabs and Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa. In other words, Israel would be reduced to  a small island in the midst of a huge sea of Arabs and Muslims.
 
Morbid dreams
 
Israel constantly  whishes  a miracle of some sort would occur and the Palestinian demographic “menace” would disappear or significantly subside. But we are talking about wishful thinking and day- dreaming which is more an expression of deep frustration than a realistic hope. It is also an expression of the deepening historical predicament facing Zionism.
 
True, Israel has always been trying to confine the largest possible Palestinian population within the smallest possible area of land. This is the reason Israeli bulldozers hasten to  destroy newly-built Arab homes in Area-C of the West Bank where Israel, according to the hapless Oslo Accords,  has full civilian and security authority. In the final analysis, Israel wants as much as possible of Palestinian geography and as little as possible of Palestinian demography. This is what Zionism is all about.  Nonetheless, this brashly racist  and manifestly fascist policy will eventually boomerang on Zionism and Israel  as Palestinians are already beginning to increasingly giving up the two-state solution and opting for one democratic and unitary state comprising  Israel and the Occupied Territories.
 
Israel has, whether we like it or not, has  already decapitated, once and for all, any remaining prospects for a viable and territorially contiguous state for the Palestinians. And the Palestinians would rather die than accept  a “dwarfed  state”, e.g., one  without East  Jerusalem, without the repatriation of refugees, and without ending the occupation that began in 1967. Needless to say, any Palestinian leader contemplating accepting such a scandalously dismal deal will most probably not live long enough to regret his folly.
 
Now, with the 2-state solution virtually dead, only two probabilities remain: 1- the one-state solution, which would spell  the end of Zionism, that is why it will be absolutely  rejected by Israel.
 
The other probability is open-ended conflict. That is the most logical scenario for the future.
 
But, once again, what would Israel do with, or more correctly to, 7 million Palestinians, who are expected to double their number in 3-4 decades which is not a long period?
 
Would Israel  poison them? Would it sterilize them to prevent them from procreation? Would it use against them secret but deadly  chemical agents that would make the death of millions look  quite natural? Would it withhold food and water from them? Would it banish them?
 
Or would it concoct some stark cause alibi like carrying out massive bombings of Israeli population centers and then blame the bombings on  Hamas? Or would it simply terrorize them into leaving their homes like Bashar Assad did to millions of “non-conformist” Syrians in active cooperation and collusion  with Russia, Iran and Hizbullah?
 
It would be utterly naïve and too gullible to rule out any of these hair-raising scenarios  especially in light of the likelihood that the US would almost certainly  support Israel, irrespective of the nefariousness  of Israeli actions including possible genocide in which millions would perish. ( some millenarian Messianic Jews are so eager to see an  evangelical president at the White House,  who would grant  Israel a total carte blanch to effect a final solution for the Palestinian issue as evangelical Christian Zionists are thoroughly convinced that Israel should be allowed to implement the Lord’s will)!.
 
In light, it is essential the Palestinians remain quite vigilant and steadfast because steadfastness  (e.g. preserving and consolidating  the demographic card) is the only winning card we possess and if we win it we win everything and if we  lose it we lose everything.
 
Finally, we must carefully refrain from giving Israel a pretext to take  draconian or unthinkable measures against our very existence.  Wining the demographic card is not only a matter of procreation. It is also a matter of wisdom, winning more friends, non-violence, resilience, and patience.

Israel is neither truly Jewish nor truly democratic
 
B Khalid Amayreh
*
The usual mantra Israeli spokespersons and PR spinners routinely invoke to bamboozle people unfamiliar with Israel’s brutal treatment of Palestinians  is that Israel is both Jewish and democratic.
 
The truth of the matter, however, is that Israel is neither truly Jewish nor truly democratic.
 
To be truly Jewish, one should adhere to the tenets of the Torah, the central scripture of Judaism.
 
Israel doesn’t do that, apart from occasionally paying lip service to holidays and religious symbols as well as some historical events whose authenticity is highly questionable.
 
Otherwise, Israel is a hotbed of all sorts of vices and immoralities, including murder, theft, adultery, sodomy, and idolatry.
 
I am confident that if Moses the Prophet  were to appear today and see what has become of the very people who claim adherence to him, and the Torah and Ten Commandments he received , he wouldn’t hesitate to say: “sorry, but I’m not a Jew!”
 
In fact, a deep and honest appraisal of Israel should unravel the clarion reality that the so-called Jewish state is not only far from encapsulating the true prophetic traditions of Judaism, but is in fact an idolater antithesis of Judaism. One Orthodox rabbi described Israel as “the modern Golden Calf.” His description is not far-fetched.
 
For example, the Torah exhorts Israelites to treat “strangers amongst you” respectfully and honorably… because you were strangers yourselves in the land of the Pharaohs.”
 
Another example is the “Golden Rule” many Zionist Jews love to quote when speaking to non-Jewish audiences: “That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is commentary”.
 
This golden rule, established by the Babylonian rabbi Hillel HaGadol, or Hillel HaZaken,  purportedly treats all humans as equal.
 
Unfortunately, we often see that the very same Zionists who invoke Hillel’s golden rule happened to be amongst the most vociferous defendants of Israel’s fascist and evil  behavior, especially its manifestly criminal treatment of the Palestinian people. Israel actually is a sea of oppression and inequity as far as the Palestinians are concerned. Israel tried every conceivable act of savagery and barbarianism against a people whose only “crime” is that they don’t belong to the “holy tribe.”
 
 
Commenting on the ongoing and seemingly unending Palestinian plight, the great Spanish writer Santiago Alba-Rico wrote:   “Perhaps Palestinians are not the most punished people on earth, but they are indeed the most openly punished people on earth; perhaps they are not the people who have suffered the most but they are the people whose sufferings are the most uninterruptedly visible. Paradoxically, this visibility (beyond the lies) makes the victims even more vulnerable; it confers a kind of biblical dimension to the aggression.”
 
In truth, the gargantuan oppression meted out to Palestinians by Israel should compel all honest people under the sun to consider Israel as no less than a gigantic crime against humanity, a crime no less horrendous and no less diabolical than history’s worst.
 
The Democracy claim?
 
I don’t deny that Israel does have many democratic features, including regular elections, a vigorous media and a lot of checks and balances.
 
However, we can’t ignore the fact that Israeli democracy is plagued with many crippling flaws which very much eviscerate that democracy of its democratic essence, rendering it a sham democracy.
 
Take for example the definition of Israel as a Jewish state first and a democratic state second. This unequivocally means that “Jewishness” always comes first and that democracy always comes a distant second.
 
So, one really wonders: How can Israel be Talmudic and democratic at the same time? This is more than a procedural paradox. This is a pure eternal oxymoron.
 
This structural built-in scandal has been enshrined into a law. Dubbed as the Nationality Law, whereby only “Jews” in Israel have the right to self-determination. The fascist camp in the Jewish state , including the Likud, Bayt Hayehudi and Avigdor  Lieberman’s party, have been trying desperately to defend the brashly fascist piece of legislation. Netanyahu, who has the gift of gab, but suffers from conspicuous intellectual shallowness, challenged critics to name a single Arab citizen whose rights have been undermined or compromised by the law. One Arab Knesset member retorted, asking Netanyahu to name a single individual Jew who was targeted by the laws of Nazi Germany.
 
The moral here is that once you target an entire group of people, you effectively target every member of the group.
 
Besides, the Arab citizens of Israel are not new comers to the land. In fact one can safely claim that 99% of Israeli Arabs predated 99% of Israeli Jews in Israel\Palestine.
 
More to the point, there are a thousand evidences corroborating the view that Israel is more a real shamocracy than a real  democracy.
 
We who live in this country know too well that Jews and non-Jews who commit the same crime don’t receive similar punishments. The non-Jew receive an extremely harsh punishment whereas the Jew receives an extremely lenient punishment.
 
The Israel press have reported cases of Jews convicted of murdering rather premeditatedly African refugees and only receiving a few months in jail. There are Thousands of examples illustrating the inherently racist and scandalously duplicitous justice system in Israel.
 
A truly democratic state gives equal weight to lives of people, irrespective of their creed and race. In Israel, however, your life carries a weight and has sanctity only if you are Jewish.
 
In 2014, the Israeli army mercilessly murdered hundreds of innocent Palestinians in Gaza who Israel admitted were totally “uninvolved” in hostilities.
 
However, the Israeli Military Advocate General found no criminal wrongdoing in the  army’s conduct. Israel concocts all sorts of mendacities,  prevarications  and verbal juggling to conceal the truth and make it look nebulous.
 
However, we all know deep in our hearts that the real reason for Israel’s refusal or reluctance  to carry out a meaningful investigation into the Nazi-like  massacres of Palestinians, carried out knowingly and deliberately, has to do with Israel’s racist perception of   non-Jewish lives.
 
Hence, it would be a sort of fornication with truth to claim that Israel is a democratic state.  In fact, it is an insult to language to call Israel a democratic state.
