ISRAEL’S RIGHT CONTINUES ITS FIGHT AGAINST AHED TAMIMI VIA ‘NEW’ VIDEO

New it’s NOT ….. but here it is

Pretty pathetic I must say

Here’s the reason behind Ahed’s actions…

Here’s what the ‘wrongful right’ sees as new ….

Another Ahed Tamimi violence video revealed

Tamimi seen in video attacking soldiers and Border Police officers with fists and kicks.

The Ad Kann organization published a new video in which terrorist Ahed Tamimi is again documented attacking soldiers during operational activity less than a year ago in Nabi Salah.

At the beginning of the video Tamimi appears blocking a border police officer’s field of vision while he was taking aim from a prone position, and then attacking Border Policemen and IDF soldiers with pushes, fists, and kicks.

About two weeks after the documented incident, Ad Kann filed a complaint with Binyamin police against Tamimi demanding a criminal investigation: “In the video you can see Tamimi attacking Border Police and IDF soldiers again and again without the security forces stopping her, so she grew bolder and began to attack with fists and even kicks,” the complaint states.

“Tamimi’s criminal actions are getting worse, and the time has come to act on this matter. Therefore, we ask you to order the necessary measures against Tamimi and other persons involved.”

A plea bargain was recently signed according to which Tamimi would be sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment and fined NIS 5,000. After the deal, Ad Kann sent a request to the Military Advocate General to cancel the plea bargain.

“We were surprised to hear about the lenient plea arrangement that was presented today after contacts between the parties that were conducted in secret,” the organization’s request stated.”This organization has long been operating in radical organizations involved in violent riots and attacks on IDF soldiers. The plea bargain is puzzling and unacceptable, since unequivocal documentation was presented and the evidence speaks for itself.

“The Tamimi family and its supporters interpret enforcement authority indulgence in the wrong way. This was the case when Ahed attacked IDF soldiers over and over without intervention, and so it was in the courtroom, when one of her supporters attacked a military prosecutor in an unprecedented manner.”

Despite this, Ad Kann‘s request to cancel the plea bargain was rejected by the Military Advocate General.

The organization, which in recent years has exposed radical left-wing organizations, has launched a crowd-funding operation at the GiveBack website to continue its activities. “They have the money from Europe – we have you,” says the fundraising page.

Ad Kann Director Gilad Ach said: “For years anarchists and Palestinians who receive funding from them have been physically attacking IDF soldiers while the soldiers’ hands are tied and unable to respond. Beyond the attack itself, these incidents severely impair the IDF’s deterrent capability, the soldier’s morale, and the fighting spirit.

“A year ago, in May 2017, we filed a police complaint about Tamimi’s repeated attacks on IDF soldiers, but unfortunately the enforcement authorities chose to ignore it, which increased motivation among the attackers.

“A plea bargain serves the same trend and will only increase the attacker’s appetite and cause soldiers to deduce they have no backing, especially when all the evidence is clear and there’s no legal need for a plea bargain. The Military Advocate General Office’s response from recent days raises the fear that the State Attorney’s Office is not determined to bring the soldiers’ attackers to justice.”

DYING FOR THE TRUTH IN GAZA …..

Yaser Murtaja was shot and killed while filming the second Great Return March which he was documenting with colleagues at عين ميديا Ain Media. This documentary was in progress before he was killed. He dedicated his life to telling the stories of Palestinians in Gaza. What a huge loss for the world.

Death is not the only thing on Israel’s ‘Final Solution’ …

A picture that you only can see in besieged Gaza/Palestine! Many young Palestinians had their lower limps amputated as a result of sever injuries by Israeli gunfire or shelling. 
They challenge their disability with determination and steadfastness.

WE AR NOT NUMBERS ….

See up close the impact of Israeli snipers who target unarmed participants in the Great Return March. This 12-year-old boy lost his leg and his dreams of being a football star.

Carlos Latuff adds the following …

New Yorkers who support justice for the Palestinian people have been very occupied over the past weeks, despite bone chilling weather most of the time has been spent on the streets.  Many of the people participating were there because they saw 30,000  people on a symbolic march of return to their land, nonviolent and  unarmed,  demonstrating for their freedom on their own land, on the Gaza side of the barrier, while Israeli military trained snipers, under no threat, and as their own families celebrated their freedom at Passover sedars, looked through their scopes, took aim and fired.  They deliberately assassinated one person after another leaving 31 murdered and over 1,000 injured.  A coalition of many groups called for a demonstration at Union Sq. on Friday, April 6th.  As the large plaza in the park filled with hundreds of people someone cried out, she had just received a call from Gaza telling her that her old friend, photojournalist Yassir Murtaja, wearing a clearly labeled vest with the word PRESS marked on it, had been murdered.  There was an outpouring of grief and anger and a memorial was planned for Murtaja and the other slain Palestinians.

Two days later, on another freezing night, about 90 people gathered at the same place for a chance to memorialize the Gaza dead and to share the enormous sadness and the even more enormous rage.  People came with candles to light the darkness and some brought flowers.  There were silent moments to think about the horrors we had witnessed on television and on our computer screens.  And yet more moments to fully understand that Israel had shown the world that they were fascists.  They had shown  their true ugly face.  All left with a determination to work even harder for boycott, divestment, and sanctions.

RABBINICAL RACISM CONDEMNED BY ADL

First read THIS post from yesterday

ADL slams chief rabbi for likening black people to monkeys

Watchdog group says Yitzhak Yosef’s ‘racially charged comment’ in weekly sermon is ‘utterly unacceptable’

Sephardi Chief Rabbi Racist Yitzhak Yosef

The Anti-Defamation League slammed the Sephardic chief rabbi of Israel on Tuesday after he likened black people born from white parents to “monkeys” during his weekly sermon on Saturday evening.

“Racially charged comment made by Israeli Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, comparing people of color to “monkeys”, is utterly unacceptable,” the Jewish civil rights organization posted in a tweet.

In a video, shared by Ynet news site, Yosef was addressing Jewish legal aspects of the blessing on seeing fruit trees blossoming, during the current Hebrew month of Nissan, and, specifically, whether one should bless one tree or at least two.

In that context, he discussed another blessing mentioned in the same section of the Talmud, which is recited upon seeing an “unusual creature.” The Talmud states that the blessing should be recited when seeing “a black person, a very red or very white person.”

Yosef explained that the Talmud is not referring to an African-American, but a black person born to two white parents. When referring to African-Americans he used the word “kushi” which is the word used by the Talmud but is a pejorative term in modern Hebrew. He then compared this black person to a monkey.

“You can’t make the blessing on every ‘kushi’ you see — in America you see one every five minutes, so you make it only on a person with a white father and mother,” the chief rabbi said.”How do would you know? Let’s say you know! So they had a monkey as a son, a son like this, so you say the blessing on him.”

In response, the rabbi’s office said that he was merely citing the Talmud, which states that the same blessing is recited upon seeing an elephant, a monkey or an ape.

Yosef has been known to court controversy in his sermons.

In a sermon delivered in May last year, he appeared to suggest during his weekly sermon that secular woman behave like animals because they dress immodestly.

In March 2016, Yosef was forced to retract a comment that non-Jews should not live in Israel, calling it “theoretical.”

He said non-Jews could live in Israel only if they observe the seven Noahide Laws, which are prohibitions against idolatry, blaspheming God, murder, forbidden sexual relations, stealing, and eating limbs off a live animal, and which prescribe the establishment of a legal system.

Non-Jews, Yosef said, are in Israel only to serve Jews.

Israel has two chief rabbis. Yosef represents those with origins in the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa, and the Middle East, and David Lau represents Ashkenazic Jews, with origins in European lands of the Roman Empire.

In footage aired by the Ynet news site, Yosef could be seen referring to black people by the pejorative Hebrew word “kushi,” and then going on to term a black person a “monkey.”

His office told Ynet that the comparison was a quote from the Talmud.

Sarah Silverman Calls On Jews To Stand Up For Palestinian Ahed Tamimi

The arrest of Ahed Tamimi, a 17-years old Palestinian girl arrested after being filmed slapping an Israeli soldier near her West Bank home, has evolved into an international debate, pitting human rights groups against the government in Jerusalem and pro-Israel groups.

Now, comedian Sarah Silverman is weighing in on Tamimi’s side and urging fellow Jews to do the same, even if it means parting with the Israeli government. “Jews have to stand up EVEN when — ESPECIALLY when — the wrongdoing is BY Jews/the Israeli government,” Silverman tweeted Thursday.

ISRAELI JOURNALIST ADMITS THAT PALESTINIANS ARE RIGHT ~~ SOMETIMES

We can keep talking about Palestinian rejectionism, anti-Semitic propaganda and support for terror, but the images produced by 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi and 11-year-old Janna Jihad—and the images dispatched to the world from Hebron’s Shuhada Street—are much stronger.

Sometimes, just sometimes, the Palestinians are right

Ben-Dror Yemini

Israel has a lot of excellent arguments on the Palestinian issue. They could have had a state. They refused, and not just in 1937 and 1947. They turned down proposals put forward by former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert and by former US President Bill Clinton. They wanted more than a state. They insisted on the “right of return.”

Israel’s excellent claims are useless, however, when the Palestinians are right. And sometimes, admittedly, they are right.

Let’s put settlements aside for a moment. Even in the event of a peace agreement, if and when we reach one, the settlement blocs won’t be evacuated. But Israel has insisted on exceeding the blocs through outposts or settling within a Palestinian population.

Two points of friction have been serving about 90 percent of Palestinian propaganda: Hebron and Nabi Salih. Hebron, the city of the patriarchs, is much more central to the Jewish people’s history than Netanya or Ashdod. It’s the place where Jewish settlement hardly ever stopped, not even during 2,000 years of exile. But with all due respect to our deep and historical connection to Hebron, settling within the city is complete foolishness.

The same applies to Neve Tzuf, a settlement established near two Palestinian villages, Deir Nidham and Nabi Salih. The latter is the place of residence of the Tamimi family, which has produced both terrorists and anti-Semitic propaganda. If that were the entire story, we would have been able deal with it. But this village has also produced 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi and 11-year-old Janna Jihad.

We can keep talking about Palestinian rejectionism and anti-Semitic propaganda and support for terror rather than for reconciliation and peace. I have done it repeatedly. We should know the facts, but we should also know it won’t help. Because the images produced by these two girls, and the images dispatched to the world from Hebron’s Shuhada Street, are much stronger. Because these “spiteful” settlements create friction. The people who have come there, although not everyone, seek to increase the level of conflict. They will try to take over private lands and the nearby fountain, and they will do anything so that the images produced by the unstoppable clashes will serve the Palestinians.

What’s the difference, the outpost supporters might ask, between the Zionist settlement on one side of the Green Line and settling on the other side? After all, it’s the same act.

Well, it’s completely different. Zionism was a movement for rescuing persecuted Jews. They didn’t come here because they were eager to come to a land that was not sown. They came because they were forced to flee. Because in those years, when empires were collapsing and when nation states were being established, there was a massive migration of nations, transfers of many communities and population swaps.

But what used to be justified before there was a state becomes unjustified as soon as the Jews have a state of their own. And whoever says there is no difference between a settlement adjacent to Nabi Salih and Tel Aviv is saying exactly what the anti-Israel propaganda is saying. The ends are connected.

In our foolishness and helplessness, we have created a justification for the Palestinians. It isn’t clear that the entire settlement enterprise is unjustified, but it is clear that only a small part of that enterprise creates most of the problem. It’s the part in which even the greatest people who speak in favor of Israel—including the most important one, Prof. Alan Dershowitz—are at a loss for words. Because the Palestinians’ work is being done by a minority among the settlers and outpost builders, and because there is no justification for land theft or for an appropriation of lands or for damaging orchards, or for the rest of the tricks carried out by a minority that wishes to drag us towards one big state, which will be neither Jewish nor democratic.

Janna Jihad and Ahed Tamimi are already defeating us on new media. They don’t have to be Anne Frank to do that, and all these comparisons are an insult to common sense and a disrespect of the Holocaust. They are defeating us because their struggle is specifically, and only specifically, justified. And only someone capable of admitting that sometimes, just sometimes, the Palestinians are right is capable of dealing with the Palestinians where they are wrong.

Whoever it was, they were RIGHT!

A HEARTBREAKING BIRTHDAY GREETING TO A VERY SPECIAL DAUGHTER FROM HER DAD

Birthday wishes for Ahed Tamimi

Today is your birthday, but I woke up in the middle of the night, not with excitement, but rather uncomfortable and short of breath. This birthday of yours different than the ones before it. Yes, it is the day you were born in, but you are forcefully kept farther away than I can bare. Still, you are closer to my heart than you could ever imagine.

One of the many birthday cakes for Ahed from worldwide celebrations

 

Birthday… and trial

To be able to write you in a moment like this, I had to lay down in your bed. Then, when I rested my head on your little pillow, you recharged my soul was charged to the brim with gratitude the memory of your generosity. How can my spirit not be lifted when you were the one who brought the world to a gale like a hurricane, you made it bare itself like a volcano?

My courageous, beautiful, shy and bold little girl – victory is befitting of you as much as joy suits you. My daughter, I am so sorry I could not protect you from the ugliness of the Occupation. I am sorry I left the oranges of Yafa sad and unpeeled, yearning for your touch. You are now surrounded by bars of iron, in a place where time is stale, and freedom and love are non-existent. Yet, it is in that cell that my hope of a better future and the certainty we will achieve it is now placed. You, my ray of hope, are locked in a prison, which is built on the ruins of Imm Khaled, near the shore of our sea. The same Imm Khaled that was ethnically cleansed by the army you slapped.

Ahed, your cell, halfway to Haifa, on the through which we will one day return. There, I imagine myself with you, the sound of my voice resonating from behind the walls – Ahed… Ahed… Ahed… My daughter, the strings of my soul – may each year see you shine brighter with the truth you hold inside. May each year see you stronger, more joyful, and as solid as the rocks that hold back the rage of oceans.

Happy birthday.

When parents celebrate their children’s birthdays, we try to make them special and unforgettable – worthy of this wondrous occasion. As parents, these days bring a soft and graceful joy to our hearts.

Today is your birthday, but I woke up in the middle of the night, not with excitement, but rather uncomfortable and short of breath. This birthday of yours different than the ones before it. Yes, it is the day you were born in, but you are forcefully kept farther away than I can bare. Still, you are closer to my heart than you could ever imagine.

Today my daughter you are a year wiser, a year filled with an even deeper love for your homeland. Today you enter a year that will be harder than those that preceded it. I dread the thought of your prison nights and the knowledge of their chill.

Prison nights are not like those at home, with us. The commotion of birthday parties is a stark contrast to the loneliness of the prison cell they have you in. I am so sorry. All I want is to gently stroke your golden hair my little girl, as I’ve done since you were a baby; to tenderly embrace you after you blow the 17 candles on your birthday cake, like I have done since you turned one. But how can my longing for you can surpass those bars of steel that are now placed between us?

Do not worry Ahed, we will see joy again and celebrate as we always have. I hereby promise, your brothers and I will stand at the gates of prison and sing for you and your mother’s freedom. We will demand the freedom of all those imprisoned unjustly; we will demand freedom for all free spirits. And you and your mother will sing with us, and pound on the prison walls with your mighty power.

Tonight we will celebrate your birthday by showing the world that no matter what happens, we celebrate life. We teach life. We love life and will not let this love be squashed. Never.

But until this evening comes when we celebrate together as a family, I wish you to stay strong and resilient. I know the soldiers may come at midnight, shackle you, and drag you through another interrogation session. If you can dress warmly, put on an extra shirt, because they will do their best to take away the warmth. Every room they will put you in, every military vehicle, will be freezing cold, on purpose. But I know I need not worry. I know how warm your soul is. You shouldn’t be, you really shouldn’t be, my little girl, but I know that you can take whatever darkness and coldness they try and torture you with.

Whatever decision it will make, the Israeli military court you will be tried in will not give you justice. These courts were not built to bring justice, these judges do not desire justice, they were built in a realm outside of humanity. 99% of those who stand before them are found guilty. But these are all just the symptoms of the illness – even if you are acquitted, these courts cannot ever be a tool of justice, since they are just another cog in the machine of military occupation. Colonialism and the basic values of mankind will never cross paths. the Occupation can never intersect with freedom, justice, and dignity.

Humanity is beautiful. It paints life with a brush of grace and endows it with beauty. The occupation is ugly, and it is made to disfigure the face of humanity. My daughter, free people do not get lost in their own narcissism, for none of us alone are anything if we do not connect to a deeper purpose and do not dedicate ourselves to positive action. It is through our deep connection, purpose, and action that we move from the solitary conditions of our birth to the real meaning and preciousness that the world has to offer. It is this awareness that allows humanity collective consciousness. You, my little girl, have tapped into that consciousness of all humanity.

They take you to trial because they want to kill that sense of humanity that is in you; they want to destroy your sense of collective struggle for a better world. It is too dangerous for them to handle. Believe it or not, they are even trying to take away your youth saying that, as you turn 17, you are a child no more. And I ask, does your childhood take a different path than you yourself on the day of 17, or does your childhood have a little more time to play in the orchards of youth and enjoy the last of your school days in peace?

Israel’s experts in immoral law may freely deliberate the unlawfulness of the slap served to their fully armed soldier by a girl and shattered their military manliness and put their fragile institutions at risk of collapse. Let them. Care not about their immoral military laws, for these laws are outside of the confines of humanity.

My little angel… Do not bother yourself with the words of those who trade in politics and religion like merchants in the market. Religious men, pious in their own eyes, want to discuss your hair in order to take attention away from your struggle and its legitimacy. The indoctrinated, unadulterated in their own eyes, do not recognize the humanity and truth in anyone who does not blindly pleads loyalty to their dogmas.

Then there are those who are always absent; the ones who refuse to take a stance for that which is right, who shiver at the idea of standing up in the face of oppression. They refuse to confront brutality, and those who struggle for freedom, like you, tear off their masks to show them for what they are.

Don’t worry about those who criticize you now, my little girl. Your bravery has turned you into a lightning rod and those fear their own hypocrisy revealed want to hide by hurting you. All their criticism of you is made up so that they can continue to hide behind their fears. They know, it is your courage that has reminded everyone – the emperor has no clothes.

Here you stand before the world – like days past and days to come – full of truth because you were raised to be honest with yourself and others, and you have learned from our land and history that true freedom comes from having agency. It comes from being willing to challenge fear time and time again. To refuse to give up your dignity.

Now your tiny slap has shaken their mighty blood thirsty military to the core and shattered their symbolic deterrence. Your own personal truth is our truth, the truth of our historical and human struggle to stay on this land. It challenges the false narratives they have, about us and of themselves.

Your truth now carries with it a whole generation that has refused to surrender to oppression, a generation that will continue to fight for its freedom. Your truth shines through because you stood up for your community and your homeland and those you love. You refused to belong to anything but yourself and Palestine.

Your truth is purer than ever, because in our day and age in Palestine, those who are pure can be found in two places, either as political prisoners on the edge of freedom, or as martyrs who have been taken from us and are now watching us in heaven. Your truth is now a beacon of hope for people around the world that have chosen to resist oppression instead of succumbing to it.

Do not worry, my little daughter – your freedom, as is the end of the Occupation is near, and those who stood against our freedom – the hypocrites and extremists and cowards – will not be left with nothing but disappointment when history is written.

When I return home tonight, I will go to your room with your brothers and we will light a candle for you, and feel your presence with us, chanting that you are our “Ahed”, our promise for a better world. Like an Olive Tree grounded in the earth..

Your mother is waiting for you back in prison. If you get to see her, please hug her for me, and celebrate your birthday together with us in your hearts. And if you are kept alone until dawn in their metal boxes, just take a seat on the saddle of hope, rise up on the horse of courage you have imagined since you were a little girl, do not pay attention to those who want to deceive and hurt you, just look at the sun rise from the small hatch and shine your smile back at it, for it is your smile that will bring us towards a brighter future.

I miss you Ahed, but I say happy birthday. May every year that comes make you stronger. May you always be full of love and bursting with truth.

Your loving father.

THE POISON APPLE OF THE WORLD // THE EVIL OF ZIONISM

No one denies that Israel is quite advanced in many fields, including medicine and electronics. But the critical question that we must raise in the face of these self-absorbed megalomaniacs is whether producing even the best possible drug to treat a given disease justifies or rationalizes the adoption of decidedly evil policies against fellow human beings.

The Poison Apple of the World THE EVIL OF ZIONISM

*

Yes, Israel does manufacture good medicines, but also produces cancer rather profusely
 
The world welcomes the good drugs but rejects the malignant cancer!
 
By Khalid Amayreh
*
The Israeli hasbara (propaganda) machine often gasconades about certain Israeli products in several fields, especially medicines and electronics.  The message these self-worshiping supremacists are trying to convey to you and me is that without these “vital” products, our health and very survival would be precarious.
 
The ultimate message, explicit, tacit or subliminal, looks like this: It is futile and self-defeating to boycott Israel and stop buying her products; otherwise your life would be made extremely hard.
 
Well, no one denies that Israel is quite advanced in many fields, including medicine and electronics. But the critical question that we must raise in the face of these self-absorbed megalomaniacs is whether producing even the best possible drug to treat a given disease justifies or rationalizes the adoption of decidedly evil policies against fellow human beings.
 
Let me be a little blunter. Would the hypothetical discovery by the Nazis of a medical breakthrough in the treatment of cancer, for example, have mitigated their nefariousness or given them a moral certificate to justify their diabolic actions and behaviors?
 
I am not suggesting at all that there is a perfect analogy between Nazi actions and behaviors against; inter alia, Jews in the course of WWII, and Israeli actions and behaviors against the Palestinians.
 
None the less, many honest and conscientious people, Jewish as well as Gentile, have described Israeli crimes against the Palestinians as evil and Nazi like. I remember that two Israeli Jewish authors wrote a book two decades ago tiled The Israeli Holocaust against the Palestinians;https://www.amazon.com/Israeli-Holocaust-Against-Palestinians/dp/0970378424
 
Hence the bottom-line question.  If the Nazis would have been dead wrong in utilizing their products like the automobile industry ¸which undoubtedly benefited humanity, in promoting their deadly fascism and hateful ideology, then why for heaven’s sake should the world buy the Zionist argument that Israel should be allowed to destroy the Palestinians  in fulfillment of an equally evil ideology because otherwise the world would only have itself to blame, given Israel’s “indispensability” to humanity.
 
To conclude:  As the world didn’t demand that Germany stop manufacturing good cars and other products following the collapse of the Third Reich, No one is demanding or would demand  that Israel stop manufacturing good medicine for the benefit of mankind. We actually encourage Israel and all other countries to keep the good work in this regard.
 
However, humanity is demanding that Israel stop immediately, once and for all, its manifestly criminal treatment of the Palestinian people.   Needless to say, this despicable treatment, unless irreversibly terminated sooner than later, will remain an indelible badge of dishonor on the forehead of Israel and Jews everywhere.

HOW CAN WE FORGET THE HOLOCAUST WHEN IT CONTINUES TO THIS VERY DAY?

On the 27th of January, the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army will be celebrated. This Memorial Day should force us to think. Our times are characterised by a grave danger of freedom of the press and of expression. Any kind of objective criticism and reporting about Jewish-Zionist crimes in Palestine is defamed as anti-Semitism. However, we should not resign, but struggle against this situation with conviction. In fact, only real anti-Semites and not invented ones must be opposed to.

Resigning means Lying!

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski,, English translation by Milena Rampoldi

If this Memorial Day, which this year will be celebrated on the 31st of January in the German Bundestag, with a memorial speech hold by the Holocaust survivor Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, we have to hope that Miss Wallfisch will also deal with the matter of the occupation and the role of the “Jewish State” in parallel to this Memorial Day. These last Holocaust survivors can still speak out and refuse to be exploited as messengers for the crimes of the “Jewish State”.

*

While the Holocaust in the “Jewish State” is used for all purposes useful for the Zionist mission and the illegal occupation of Palestine, these last survivors are financially forgotten and some of them live in misery. Then let us ask ourselves where all the German reparation payments have gone. In fact, for bureaucratic reasons, welfare organisations like the “Jewish Conference” in New York got back the refund of expropriated assets to Holocaust victims. What happened with the 17 employees and the employees of the Claims Conference, accused of the misappropriation of 42 million US-Dollar since 1993? This problem has been known for years now, but it is repeatedly hushed. (1)

Hungry Holocaust Victims in the “Jewish State”

Already in 2010, in an article published by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, entitled „Die vernachlässigten Opfer“ (The neglected victims), dealt with this shameful situation in the “Jewish State”. It was shocking to read that Holocaust survivors continued to languish in poverty with a mini pension and had to choose between drugs and food, as the Israeli association “Amcha” reports. (2) This January, Russia Today reported about the hungry Holocaust victims in the “Jewish State”. (3)

*

At the moment in Germany we experience a witch-hunt against all critics of the ineffable occupation and oppression politics in the “Jewish State”. While Jewish people – but only that who are at the right front – are declared victims and “saints”, Jewish peace activists are marginalized as anti-Semites or “Jewish self-haters”.

*

With the support of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Muslim hatred is promoted. Rallies and protests against the crimes of the Jewish State violating international law and against occupation are accused of being the expression of anti-Semitism. People think to get control of Israel critical rallies, by accusing them of being the expression of hatred toward Jews. (4)

*

I understand Palestinian, Arabic, Turkish, and Muslim citizens very well, if they opposed to the politics of the “Jewish State” also in Germany, because very often their family members or faith fellows are involved.

*

Solidarity with Muslim citizens!

As engaged German citizens, having been struggling for the freedom of Palestine for a long time now, we should express our solidarity with Muslim citizens exposed to Muslim hatred.

*

Who accepts refugees, does not import anti-Semites or Muslim haters of Jews to Germany, as it is exactly the opposite. And it is good to face the Central Council of Jews with the occupation politics of the Jewish State violating international law.

*

When the president of the Central Council Schuster asks for the limitation of the assembly and opinion right, and even for a legislative change to remove all obstacles of “Jewish and Israeli” interests, the red line has been crossed.

*

In fact, it is part of the understandable expression of opinion, if the David Star is burnt as symbol of oppression or if the Palestinian kafiya is worn with proud. It is not a symbol of hatred toward Jews, as the former president of the Council Knobloch urges us to believe. Instead, it is the proud symbol of Palestine, I also like wearing. So when the Springer Press with its incomparable philo-Semitism diffuses such a rabble-rousing with its editor Martin Niewendick, then we should all oppose to it! (5)

*

It is quite enough with Fake News, denigrations, and concerted rabble-rousing actions!

It is quite enough with Fake News, denigrations, and concerted rabble-rousing actions. Up to now, fake news about the “death to Jews” are diffused on the internet, and have still not been deleted. In fact, these slogans were not shouted during Berlin rallies, while “death to Arabs” is a daily slogan shouted in the “Jewish State” by Judaistic extremists or written on building facades. (6)

*

On the 16th of January, the fractions of the parties CDU/CSU, SPD, FDP and Bündnis 90/Die Grünen made the shameful motion, entitled „Antisemitismus entschlossen bekämpfen“ (Struggle decisively against anti-Semitism). In this document, the German constitution and human dignity, which should be valid for all citizens, are nullified and trampled underfoot.

*

Of course, Germany has its responsibility for Jews. However, this responsibility also concerns all other citizens, Muslim, Christians, and Atheists. What do they want to urge us to believe? That Jews are something special? If this is not anti-Semite…. Shortly, a competent person for anti-Semitism will be nominated. In the end, this person will only be the command receiver of the Israel lobby  and their Christian-Zionist groups. So this will be a totally inadequate mean, and a horrifying symbol of the limitation of the democratic environment in Germany. Instead, we need a person competent for racism, opposing to all kind of racism. And a particular focus should be on islamophobia.

*

Cooking a philo-Semite inedible, toxic soup?

With this dishonest motion, contrary to international law and the constitution, attempts are made to lump together anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, Israel critics, and to cook a philo-Semite, inedible, toxic soup to silence us all. (7)

*

When I heard about the debate around the Bundestag motion, the most nauseating was the Israel lobbyist and philo-Semite CSU politician Dobrindt. He mixed up German leading culture and patriotism connecting it with this motion.

*

So in the next future this German patriotic leading culture will cause a tsunami of anti-democratic measures. And the starting point is the refusal of public rooms for events daring to criticise the racist Jewish occupation policy or to support the BDS movement. This application also clearly opposes to EU law. In the end, this motion, supported by all parties, is a gift to the right-wing party AfD. And exactly the parties CDU/CSU promoted the proposal supported by the Central Council of Jews to implement deportations of Muslim refugees who oppose to the rules of the Israel lobby. In 2011, I already wrote: “We are all made anti-Semites.” And this thesis has been realised in the meantime, as who does not accept the (fictive!) existence right of the State of Israel or questions the Holocaust, can be deported from Germany.

*

And we can imagine the consequences of all this. If this motion swears to “democracy and constitutional state”, then this is an insult. Will BDS supporters and all Israel critics follow the Muslim refugees? Will we stand trial because this philo-Semite representative of the “leading culture” accuse us of mass instigation if we criticize the crimes against international law and human rights committed by the “Jewish State”? Or if we oppose to the concept of the “Jewish and democratic state” because democratic and Jewish exclude one another since an ethnic group and a religion are preferred. Is this the German reason of state of the leading culture? No, thanks. This is simply nauseating.

*

Will the future (big) coalition lead by the Christian-Zionist Merkel continue to silence on the crimes of the “Jewish State” and celebrate this year as “year of jubilation” for Israel? This is what I fear: they will “philosemitically” celebrate the 70th anniversary of the foundation of Israel at the expense of the Palestinian people.

*

Nauseating application to cooperate with an occupation regime of the worst type

On the 31st of January, during the celebration of the Holocaust Memorial Day, we have to oppose to the application submitted to the Bundestag, as it supports apartheid, crimes against human rights, oppression of Palestinians and the continuation of the illegal occupation of Palestine. It is a nauseating application to support an occupation regime of the worst type. Not in our name! If we remain silent, we will be guilty again.
