Another massacre of Jews - another silence

Four Israelis -- an elderly couple Rafi and Ilana Levy (pictured left) of Kedumim and and two teenagers -- killed in yesterday's suicide bombing sponsored by the mainstream Fatah movement of Abbas. You would have thought that might have been big news? Not a word about it on any of the news channels or newspapers in the UK. Yet every Muslim interviewed, no matter what the subject, can still casually assert (without ever being challenged) that Palestinians are being massacred daily by Israelis.

The Left and Guardian readers

Anybody who doubts the ferocious anti-semitism (disguised as anti-Zionism) that is typical of the new left in its alliance with the Islamafascists should check out some of the following:

For a sensible left view of Tony Blair's speech today see this article at Harry Place. Personally I thought it was a decent speech, but as usual, he was still not entirely spelling out the true nature of the Islamafascist threat and its basis in the Koran.

World gone mad

I was going to write something about the ludicrous reporting of the Israeli jail storming, but Melanie Philips has already done it.

Also well worth a read is Alan Johnson's fantastic analysis of the threat of political Islam and how it can be defeated.

Finally check out this article about the Palestinians honouring two of the most brutal child killers of all time. This relates to an attack in 1979 the Washington Post called a "murder of unimaginable cruelty." Smadar Haran, wife and mother of the victims, described the attack as follows:
"It had been a peaceful Sabbath day. My husband Danny and I had picnicked with our little girls, Einat, 4, and Yael, 2, on the beach. Around midnight … the terrorists burst into our building. Danny helped our neighbor climb into a crawl space above our bedroom; I went in behind her with Yael in my arms. Danny grabbed Einat and was dashing out the front door when the terrorists came crashing into our flat. They held Danny and Einat I will never forget the joy and the hatred in the terrorists voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. ... The terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he smashed my little girl's skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That terrorist was Samir Quntar."
And that terrorist, along with fellow Jordanian Sultan Al-Ajaluni involved in the attack have been awarded honorory citizenship by the Palestinian Authority.

Again: Jewish victims of terrorism don't count

The following is a self-explanatory letter I wrote to the Sun today:

Dear Sun

Your otherwise excellent lead article today about Brits killed in terrorist attacks abroad since Sept 11 has one glaring omission. There is no mention of Brits killed in suicide bombings by Palestinians in Israel. On 19 Sept 2002, for example, 18 year old student Yonni Jesner of Glasgow was killed along with 6 other passengers in a bus in Tel Aviv. I'd like to think that this was just a simple error on behalf of your editorial and reporting team rather than a conscious decision to regard Jewish victims of terrorist attacks as less deserving of sympathy.

Galloway rewarded with show on TalkSport

TalkSport radio have given scumbag George Galloway a talk show (every Saturday and Sunday night) and have the following nausiating headline on their web page "George Galloway, Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green & Bow is arguably the greatest debater alive - and talkSPORT have bagged him!..."

I have emailed the following comment to TalkSport (I encourage others to do the same here):

I have always enjoyed listening to TalkSport but I am at a loss to know why you have appointed George Galloway. Perhaps your programming team felt that Galloway was a harmless piece of fun who spends his time impersonating a cat and wearing a leotard. In fact he actually spends most of his time whipping up hatred against this country in his travels to the most reactionary Arab regimes. Many of his speeches, such as this one where he praises Islamic suicide bombers and encourages more attacks against our troops in Iraq, are on the record -- so it's not as if this should come as a surprise to you:
I look forward to TalkSport's apology for its mistake.

British anti-semitism

An interesting report here and a good article by Melanie Philips on a similar theme discuss the way that the ferocious campaign to deligitmise Israel has led to increased anti-semitism in the UK. The Livingstones and Galloways, as well as the Islamists know that if you repeat a lie often enough then it will be believed. They all routinely mention the 'barbarity' or even 'genocide' committed against 'Palestine' as the single most important reason for 'Muslim anger at the West'. Yet I have never once heard a commentator question such assertions. Hence people who have no knowledge of the Middle East at all simply accept that Israel has committed genocide against the Palestinians. One small example this week is typically shocking. The Jewish Chronicle reports that a British-based Dance magazine called Dance Europe refused to publish a piece about the Dance Drama Company in Tel Aviv unless "the company in Israel co-operates with us by adding a disclaimer saying it is opposed to the occupation, settlements, and everything else". It would be interesting to know just what the 'everything else' includes but I imagine it would be not much short of any Jew living in Israel. What makes the story even more astonishing is that it turns out there is a link on the magazine website to a Palestinian Dance company. When asked why the magazine required no disclaimer against suicide bombings the editor said "There's a reason for people to become suicide bombers. Their land is occupied".
That's the way a LOT of apparently intelligent people in the UK think nowadays.

Who are the real Iranians?

While there is no doubt that Iran under the mad mullahs and Ahmandinejad pose the biggest threat to world peace (and are dedicted to the destruction of Israel) there are definitely conflicting views about what the Iranian people genuinely believe. Michael Totten's report suggests there is room for cautious optimisim. But this report from MEMRI suggests otherwise. The problem seems to be that, even if the educated the Iranians despise their regime, they have no means to stop it (democratically or otherwise) - and in any case the educated Iranians are a minority.
