WORLD GONE MAD: Israel bad bleat blind eye sheep

While villagers are forced to watch a man stoned to death in Somalia, and 75 year old women are being sentenced to the lash, in Saudi Arabia, isn’t it nice to know that there are people (being published in The Australian) who believe a few Jews building apartments in Israel, is the real cause of all the problems in the Middle East…

  1. If I built myself a shed in your backyard without your consent, would you believe it could potentially be a major cause of a disagreement between us?

  2. Just maybe the Jews are just reacting to their being thrown out of their homeland all those years ago

  3. What does Somalia and Saudi Arabia have to do with Israel? Are you trying to make some point here? I thought this website was supposed to be about “debating” and “arguing”. All I see is insults and insinuations.

  4. The point is obvious – the source of Mid East poverty and cruelty emenates not from Israel but from dysfuntional societies that cannot protect their own citizens let alone engage constructively with Israel and their neighbours. The greatest human rights abuses in the Mid East are Arab on Arab violence and Muslim on Muslim violence. More Palestinians die from honour killings than as victims of the IDF. All we hear from the Western media and academia is that Israel is to blame for everything and Arabs are either passive victims or forced into radicalism by Israeli oppression.

  6. Hear hear, Andrew.

    Here we go with another dishonest piece from Australians for Palestine
    representative, Michael Shaik, insisting, as you say that a few Israelis building apartments is the biggest evil in the Middle East.

    No mention, as always, of Palestinian suicide bombers, thousands of Hamas missiles being fired at Israeli kindergartens, daily calls for “Death to the
    Jews” on Palestinian state television, and the ongoing encouragement of Palestinian children as young as 5, to die for Allah.

    Not one word, as though it never happened. It is this sort of denial which is the biggest obstacle to peace – Palestinian supporters unwilling to suggest even for a second that the Arabs take a long hard look at themselves, rather than
    trying to blame everything on other people as has been their strategy
    for the last 60 years (in between bombings and beheadings).

    The Palestinians have not honored even a single commitment made. Yet if Israel did everything Shaik demands, and more, would a single
    Palestinian terrorist drop his weapons and hug a Jew? Not likely.

    Indeed, were Israel to simply disappear tomorrow, heaven forbid, does anyone really believe that the global Jihad in dozens of countries worldwide would go quiet?

    Of course not. Who is Shaik kidding (besides himself)?

    For more background to this scumbag, have a look at the video of the last feral Palestinian protest in Melbourne.

    http://www.typeboard.com/2009/12/anti-israeli-demonstration-gets-a-little-nasty-in-australia

    Check out the feral scum hurling abuse at hard working Australian police officers – “get those animals off the horses”, followed by Michael Shaik (about 4m30s) endorsing everything said at the rally (howsoever offensive to our boys in blue) and suggesting the nearby Jewish attendees of a charitable fundraiser were “Crawling around like rats”. Stay classy Michael!

    Note at about 6m40s, the chant of “From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free”. If you look at the map of the area, this is a euphemism for the total destruction of Israel. Their intentions are perfectly clear and it has nothing to do with peace.

    At 7m40s it turns really nasty. Naturally that bit didn’t make it onto Youtube…

    A nice bunch. Imagine if they had their own state. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful contributor to society…

  7. I know, it’s outrageous to the world that the Israelis build places to live in their own country.

    Really makes me wonder why all that guilt was expressed over the Holocaust when it is plain that so many people wish it would happen again, and are conspiring to bring it on.

  8. A socialist state will fix this problem…
