Below is an old email from Melana, who used to run Serbblog. I found it as instructive today as ever, so I’m finally posting it, though I’d meant to do so when she first wrote it back in 2008:
I had mixed feelings about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for a long time. While I had always admired brave little Israel — a sort of David against the Goliath Arab-Muslim world surrounding it — I had also met some Palestinians (some of them Christians) with horror stories about what happened to them at the hands of Israelis some years ago. Then one day, I met an Armenian woman from Lebanon who sort of set me straight.
This Lebanese Christian woman told me that she too had sympathized with the Palestinians (as had many Lebanese) — until they destroyed her country. Lebanon had been the Switzerland of the Middle East — beautiful, prosperous and comfortably multi-religious — until they took in the Palestinians when none of the other Muslim Arab countries would.
But the Palestinians used their new ‘home’ in Lebanon as nothing more than a base to launch attacks on Israel and to eventually start a civil war between Muslims and Christians in Lebanon. She thinks that this was part of their plan — and this is why Palestinians came to a mixed Christian/Muslim country and not to another purely Muslim country like Jordan (which was actually the ’settlement land/country’ in return for the founding of Israel.) It was part of the Muslim plan to get Lebanese Christians to hate Israel as much as Muslims hated Israel, so that eventually all Christians and the Western World might hate Israel, too. (Much like hating the Christian Serbs for what happened to Muslims in Yugoslavia, at the same time when we in the U.S. are fighting radical Islamic terrorists who perpetrated 9/11. Divide us against ourselves and we spend our energy fighting each other, instead of fighting our real enemy — militant Islam.)

German author Vera Lengsfeld reported that German Interior Minister Lothar de Maizière said that: the attacker was a single perpetrator who had been “incited” by the IS, there were no indications in his video of an “order” by the IS, it was unknown how the video got from the apartment of his host family, where it was recorded, to the IS, and however there were no indications of any connection to the IS.
Reminds me somehow of when our history teacher in high school reassured us that his generation did not get wind of the Holocaust in any way, because the walls of the concentration camps had been far too high to be able to look beyond them.

We can and we do [b]urn children alive, execute murderous, inhuman, incomprehensible terror. And no, we’re no better than them…. – Sima Kadmon, “We’re no better than our enemies,” Ynet
They are no different than ISIS… this is Jewish jihadism, identical in every detail to Islamic jihadism – Ron Ben-Yishai, Ynet
Israelis stab gay people and burn children. There isn’t a shred of slander, the slightest degree of exaggeration, in this dry description – Gideon Levy, Haaretz
The events of last week cast doubt on the ability of Israel to survive the merciless brutality that surrounds it.
Deplorable acts by fringe elements
The insanity – and there is no other word to describe the frenzy that seized the public debate over acts, however heinous, perpetrated by a handful of individuals (some yet unidentified) – [sic; closing dash here, not after “society”, where it should be (I suspect the editor); RR] on the outermost fringe of Israeli society, betrayed a dangerous and dysfunctional disability in the nation’s capacity to order its priorities.
For in what is arguably the most fateful 60-day period in recent decades for the Jewish state, when all the nation’s energies should be focused with laser-like intensity on foiling the perilous Iran nuclear deal before Congress, attention has been diverted by sanctimonious hand-wringing and moralistic self-flagellation over crimes of individual perpetrators on the very margins of society.
It is an attempt to paint all ideo-political adversaries with the same brush; to taint with the delegitimizing stain of religious fanaticism, all those, who, for a variety of reasoned arguments – security imperatives, historical significance, national heritage, economic pragmatism – oppose p [sic] territorial concession and political appeasement in the conflict with the Palestinian-Arabs.

Blessed be your quality weapons, the wheels of your cars, your axes and kitchen knives. By Allah, these are stronger than the arsenals of our enemy, because [they are being used] according to Allah’s will. We are the soldiers of Allah. – Sultan Abu Al-Einein, Senior Advisor of Mahmoud Abbas and Member of the Fatah Central Committee, one day after the massacre
How beautiful is your Martyrdom. / You have placed a crown [upon my head] / … / O Ghassan and Uday, / who carried out the operation / blessed be your hands and the tips of your fingers. / Blessed be the womb that bore you /… / Yesterday [I gave] the most beautiful gift. / The Martyrs’ blood was not spilled in vain. / I am a Palestinian. – Mother of Uday Abu Jamal
That – in stark contrast to the Jews or even any other people for that matter – the Germans have learned a lot from the Holocaust has long been perfectly clear. So far, they have already played a leading role in preventing a “new Auschwitz” in Kosovo, Serbia, coincidentally defeating in the process once again their (former!) “arch-enemy”, the Serbs, and carving a second Albanian “state”, a Muslim one, out of sovereign Serbian territory, where now, after a series of anti-Serbian, anti-Christian pogroms, if not much else, you can at least make good money if you’re an Albanian Hitler look-alike. In fact, the Germans have learned so much so that in the evening after the horrific slaughter of five people (four Rabbis and a Druze policeman) and the wounding of 10 others in a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood last November, an anchor of the major German public television station ZDF, Marietta Slomka, was able to stay perfectly “neutral” and – as they say in Italian – to “take things with philosophy” without letting even this story remind her and her public of anything.
The following is a commented unabridged translation of the entire introduction by Slomka and of the entire following “report” by a ZDF correspondent in Israel for the news program “Heute Journal”.

until America is destroyed. That may be the only common ground he has with Obama. Both America and Iran are governed by fanatics who believe that America is the source of all evil. Both believe that it needs to be destroyed.
Carter made the Islamic Revolution possible. Obama is enabling its nuclear revolution.
Today Tehran and Washington D.C. are united by a deep distrust of America, distaste for the West and a violent hatred of Israel. This deal is the product of that mutually incomprehensible unity. It is not meant to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb. It is meant to stop America and Israel from stopping it.
The deal assumes that Iran wants lower electricity rates. Iran’s constitution tells us that it wants Jihad. And unlike Obama, Iran’s leaders can be trusted to live up to their Constitution.
Let’s not say any more that Muslims are victims of terrorism too. The EU foreign policy head Federica Mogherini shows that by this you only give her another tool for lying with the truth.

Or doesn’t she… Anyway, just “talking about the Israelis, the Palestinians – any who are involved in these […] rhetoric-raising incidents”, victims, perpetrators, defenders, anyone:
“We strongly condemn the stabbing today in the West Bank, and we deeply regret the loss of life,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, in a statement made before soldier Almog Shiloni, who was critically wounded in the Tel Aviv attack, died of his wounds.
“Our condolences go out to the victim’s family. It is absolutely critical that parties take every possible measure to protect civilians and de-escalate tensions,” added Psaki.
To be more precise, “Jen von Psaki-Ribbentrop” (Jin Nib), allegedly “speak[ing] to all of them” (meaning both murders), said according to the State department itself:
We strongly condemn the stabbings – [ahem!] the stabbing today in the West Bank and we deeply regret the loss of life. Our condolences go out to the victim’s family. It is absolutely critical that parties take every possible measure to protect civilians and de-escalate tensions.

Never mind if it should eventually turn out that an (Israeli) Arab gay teenager was sacrificed on the altar of anti-Semitism, “heroically” killing two birds with one stone.
For nearly three weeks, international media outlets found it tough to relate to the abduction and murder of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel. To them, the story that seized Jews in Israel and abroad was an insignificant, if unhappy, story that was not worthy of front-page coverage. What a difference a day makes: As of this writing , Britain’s BBC and Guardian websites, and American CNN, USA Today and ABC websites feature the murder of Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir this morning, plus extensive footage of the rioting. All mentioned the possibility that the murder could have been a revenge attack for the triple homicide of the teenage “settlers,” but none mentioned the police’s primary avenue of investigation at the moment: A Palestinian honor killing related to the possibility that the victim was homosexual.
The most important thing being to make pathic projections like “Israel provoziert dritte Intifada” (“Israel provokes third Intifada” – headline of the German “green” tageszeitung on the day of the burial of Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Fraenkel) seem true.
Can there be any doubt any more that the the current US administration, the EU, the UN (with its “Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”), the PA and Iran are now all working hand in hand and increasingly hard to weaken Israel, while re-strengthening Iran, just as the world’s anti-Semites have always wished would happen?

A study conducted byf [sic] the German government reveals that 82 major attacks took place on synagogues within a five year period. Vandals and terrorists left notes connecting their attacks with the Israel-Palestinian conflict. “So long as you do not give the Palestinians peace, we are not going to give you peace,” read many of these notes. [Giulio Meotti, in: Israel National News, 20 October 2013]
According to the German newspaper Die Welt, last August, in Germany, “in the former prisoners bath” of the former concentration camp in Dachau (near Munich), when asked by the former prisoner Uri Chanoch, “who [… ] lives in Israel,” “what message he should take home from this meeting,” (according to Chanoch) the head of the German government, Angela Merkel, replied: “Make peace!”
When I visited Gaza in July, I met a brave fighter who showed me a knife which his grandfather used to slit the throat of a Jew in Hebron in 1933, and his father used in a raid on a farmhouse in 1962 and which he hopes to use one day as well. There is both romance and practical necessity in this. The criminal Israeli siege of Gaza allows through food and clothing, but not knives. Many Gazans must make do with a single knife for the entire family. Only one of them is able to use the knife at a time. If the grandmother of a large family wants to slice bread while her grandson breaks into a settlement to slit a baby’s throat– she has no choice but to starve. … [More at Sultan Knish]
At least not at such a low cost.
The Maltese Times published today in its online edition a headline apparently taken from a press agency called PA:
“Face of Israeli attack bus bomber“
There you have it! Now those “Nazi-Zionists” even have “attack buses“! How perverted, er, perverse!
Anti-Semitic Islamists who kill defenseless Jewish civilians (tourists, in this case) in Europe become courageous ‘resistance fighters’ just like those little innocent stone-throwing ‘Palestianian’ children sent by their anti-Semitic parents and/or the “Palestinian Authority” defying Israeli ‘occupation’, whom every European (leftist) Nazi cannot but love! Anti-Semitic mass-murderers become the ‘face of peace.’ Continue reading Chapeau, “Times” (of Malta), Goebbels couldn’t have done it any better!
so why, just after the editor of MaltaToday, Saviour Balzan, in the wake of the violent death of an ‘illegal immigrant’ in Malta, has ‘broken the news’ that “the issue of colour has become ridiculous and far-fetched” (whatever idiocy that means or reveals), not start diverting popular resentment again against some evil whites, anzi why not propose to start “hounding” them directly, ghax is it not that they themselves, those ever-greedy Semites so very different from us Semites and our other Semitic brethren, the Arabs, are always “hounding passers-by to test their products” instead of performing anti-capitalist, anti-Semitic, as well as anti-Christian, ‘revolutions’?
