Here are our "moderate" peace partners:
Palestinian Authority radio contest featured a laudatory biography of Adolf Hitler replete with his military victories, heroism and no mention of the Holocaust.
"His golden year was 1940, when his armies invaded Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, Holland, and Belgium and defeated France…By mid 1942, his country controlled the largest land area in Europe…He refused to surrender and continued to fight for two more years, but, his bitter end came in the spring of 1945 when he took his own life…Who is he?" was the question broadcast as a Voice of Palestine radio contest on November 27.
The question was part of the official Palestinian Authority-run radio’s Ramadan quiz - rebroadcast this past week, and documented by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
The broadcast presents Hitler heroically, detailing his two Medals of Honor in World War I, his rise to power, his launching of World War II and specifies country after country that he conquered. (From Arutz-7)
Before you listen to a Pseudostinian claim that there was no Holocaust or that Germany should be made to pay, not them, consider the ties between the Nazis and the Arabs of "Palestine". The chief Islamic authority during the War, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, Mufti of Jerusalem, was a great admirer of Hitler, spent the war years with him in Germany, thwarted plans to allow Jews to immigrate to Israel and escape the Nazis, helped recruit Bosnian Muslims to join the SS and planned to build a death camp modeled on Auschwitz near Shechem (Nablus), among other things. "Arise, o sons of Arabia," he exhorted his avid pro-Nazi followers. "Fight for your sacred rights. Slaughter Jews wherever you find them. Their spilled blood pleases Allah, our history and religion. That will save our honor."
Not to be outdone by the Arabs, the IDF is now disarming Israeli settlers in Judea and Samaria- not like there's any use for weapons there.
The IDF is conducting a large scale operation to confiscate weapons from the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, according to Channel 10 TV. The purpose of the operation is described as "putting the settlers' gun permits in order."
The security coordinators of the communities in Samaria have been summoned to a meeting with IDF officers Thursday, and community leaders are convinced that the IDF intends to collect many of the weapons in the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. (From Arutz-7)
No danger at all... like this:
Two Israeli-Arabs from Jaljulia, aged 17 and 21, were indicted in a district court in Tel Aviv on Thursday for planning to carry out terrorist attacks as part of al-Qaeda's calls for worldwide jihad.
The two are accused of planning to stab an IDF soldier at the Kfar Qassem junction in order to steal his weapon and use it to shoot at other soldiers at the intersection.
The pair was arrested during a joint operation by the Shin Bet, Border Police and Police special forces unit.
Both men also admitted to planning to knife a security guard at the entrance to the Sde Hemed community. They planned to enter the town with the stolen weapon in order to shoot at community residents. (From Ynet News)
These two men were Israeli citizens, not poor oppressed Pseudostinians. They have more political rights than any Arabs in any Arab country, a higher living standard and all the advantages and privileges that Israeli democracy entails. When will the Israeli elite realize that democracy and a higher quality of life will not make the Arabs love us? The Arabs believe that Israeli belongs to them and they will never be satisfied until that happens. Such a thing (G-d forbid) will never happen so it is foolish to try to placate and accomodate them. Their human rights must be protected but should they wish to exercise their political determination, they are free to do so in any of the 22 Arab countries. The door is thataway...
