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.)
Hollywood/Calif. Hatte die Nachricht, Leonardo DiCaprio habe sich die Verfilmungsrechte des VW-Abgas-Skandals gesichert, für Aufsehen gesorgt, so wird sie nun von einer noch spektakuläreren Neuigkeit übertroffen. Kein Geringerer als James Cameron will den Aufstand der „Nordafrikaner“ gegen ihre Unterdrückung durch deutsche Frauen am Kölner Bahnhof in der Silvesternacht auf die Leinwand bringen. Das Projekt ist weit gediehen, die Dreharbeiten sollen schon im Februar beginnen, „bevor zum Frühling hin die nächsten Millionen Antänzer hier antanzen; schließlich haben wir auch Frauen im Team“, meint der Starregisseur.

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.
said Monday [today] that Iran is once again an empire whose influence extends to Iraq and beyond. […] “The geography of Iran and Iraq cannot be divided. All of the Middle East is Iranian,” Younesi declared, warning that no one had the right to oppose Iran’s influence in the region. The people now living in neighboring countries are also Iranian “because their countries were separated from the empire east and west.”
In New York, also today, the current “High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy” and a “Vice-President of the European Commission”, Federica Mogherini, had this to say before the United Nations Security Council:
[We] have never been so close to what could be a turning point in the history of Iran’s relation with the West. And with the region. We should not waste such a historical opportunity.
Theodor W. Adorno’s categorical imperative saying that everything should be organised in a way that Auschwitz cannot repeat itself has been turned into its opposite: especially since the beginning of the “Arab spring”, everything is increasingly being organised in a way that it is most probable for it to happen again soon.

The rats turned out to be training the psychiatrist and they have done an excellent job of it. The Muslim world is more Anti-American than it was 10 years ago, while we are more pro-Muslim. Each time they finish the moderate maze and assure us how peaceful Islam is, we gift them with the cheese of appeasement. Rather than teaching them to be moderate using the reward of our appeasement, they have taught us to appease them using the reward of their faked moderation. Like tourists at the souk, we have been cheated badly by laying out good money for a fake rug. But worse than that we have been turned into rats in their maze, rushing to appease them in the hopes that they will reward us by being moderate.
Shh, Obama, can you hear me? I mean this: You let me continue make little bomb for kill all Zionists, and I speak peace like Hitler sometimes in the Thirties until November 2, but much softer. We will not attack you until then (know what I mean: hudna), you have another two years, maybe finally may speech at Berlin Siegessäule, how you say? – get shit out of Rebublicans, afterward become UN king, and I maybe already go to heaven and have 72 nice fresh chicks, so everybody happy as can be. Big win-win deal, got it? Alright man? Good deal? Best I can offer! Now even Russia maybe more afraid, but EU help us sure! So let us lose not time, we almost finished!
While DEBKAfile reports that – given that the Russians seem to have agreed with the Iranian anti-Semitic rackets upon starting to feed it with nuclear fuel rods already on the 21st of August, protecting it from an Israeli attack – Israel has probably only one week left for damaging the Bushehr atomic facility without causing much harm to civilians, the so-called Middle East Quartet, of which Russia is part, enthusiastically represented by the new face of the EU, Catherine Ashton, has found just in time another “good” distraction for the Israelis, coercing the anti-Semitic PA president Mahmoud Abbas into “direct talks” within a few hours while there are signs that it is willing to impose its own preconditions on Israel in his stead now, e.g. putting pressure on it to make Judea and Samaria judenrein.
While the “Quartet” and the whole world only feigns to be serious and concerned not only for the Arabs who in their majority, especially in the “West Bank,” still wish to destroy Israel, but even for the Jews, and is indeed only torturing the Israelis in order to have them make more and more concessions to those aiming at their destruction, by acting as if it is all just a game like the Nazis’ “games” explained by the protagonist Guido to his own son in Roberto Benigni’s kitsch film “La vita è bella” in order to have him have some kind of a happy childhood despite the Shoah, Caroline Glick has recently explained (again) the seriousness of the threats Israel is facing thanks to the fact that the West would so very much like to dream on of “peace” and “friendship” with those who are preparing a new Holocaust, and, for a little afterward, the rest of the West’s end:
Several sources have informed One Jerusalem that the Obama Administration is planning to significantly step up the pressure on Israel by announcing a comprehensive plan for Israel and the Palestinians at the opening of the United Nations General in September.
Picture this: The anti-Israel nations of the world surrounding President Obama as he demands that Israel give up sovereignty over Jerusalem, abandon settlements, and recognize a terrorist state on the West Bank.
The first sign that something was up came when Egyptian President Mubarak said that the Obama Administration was ready to propose a plan in September, and the White House rushed to dampen expectations by declaring that they are nowhere near to readying a plan.
Our sources confirmed that the Obama administration is contemplating this ambush of Israel at the United Nations.
accomplished by “all those who have good intentions, and don’t want to know anything” (Gerhard Scheit):
DEBKAfile‘s Iranian sources stress that Ahmadinejad was telling the six powers that Tehran was not against negotiations but only on its own terms, which would be dictated when its government was good and ready. He thus placed in its real context the formal consent to negotiations which Iran’s nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili delivered to European Union external affairs executive Javier Solana Tuesday.
… to Javier Solana, who is probably the best possible first “Western” partner of the murderous Mullah regime, if it is true that General Wesley Clark once asked Solana the secret of his diplomatic success,” and that Solana “answered: ‘Make no enemies, and never ask a question to which you do not know or like the answer.'” (Wikipedia)
When, in the Führerbunker, Hitler once again invoked the eradication of Bolshevism and the merciless resistance against the “world poisoner of all peoples,” “international Jewry,” as his testamentary will, he especially deplored the dereliction of an audacious policy of friendship with Islam, explaining by this the defeat.*
Gerhard Scheit, in: konkret, 12 (December)/2000)
“Let me say very clearly that the way the European Union will relate to an [Israeli] government that is not committed to a two-state solution will be very, very different,” said Javier Solana, the EU’s foreign and security affairs chief.
sind Bezeichnungen für den absichtsvollen, im Idealfall gleichberechtigten, respektvollen, aber auch kritischen Meinungsaustausch, die Begegnung oder auch die Zusammenarbeit in Alltag und Theologie zwischen Vertretern bzw. Angehörigen verschiedener Religionen. Der interreligiöse Dialog kann mehrere Religionen gleichzeitig einbeziehen, häufiger sind jedoch Begegnungen zwischen zwei Religionen.
Allem Anschein nach gab es einen solchen (im Voraus geplanten dreitägigen) interreligiösen Dialog vor kurzem auch in Teheran im Rahmen einer Konferenz. Zwar ist uns nicht bekannt, ob es sich um einen zwei- oder um einen noch-mehr-seitigen Dialog gehandelt hat; in jedem Fall scheinen aber sowohl begeisterte Anhänger der Welt-Alltagsreligion des offenen Vernichtungsantisemitismus als auch begeisterte Anhänger der Welt-Alltagsreligion des zumeist eher irgendwie genuschelten Antisemitismus dort recht absichtsvoll zusammengekommen zu sein.
Die italienische Tageszeitung il Giornale zitierte in Ihrer Online-Ausgabe vom 29. Oktober einen Dialogteilnehmer, den früheren UN-Generalsekretär Kofi Annan, mit den wohl eher das Verbindende als das Trennende hervorheben wollenden Worten, dass das Problem “nicht so sehr die Bibel oder der Koran” seien, sondern “dass einige Kreise sie für ihre politischen Ziele missbrauchen”.
Ob damit die Juden gemeint waren, wurde nicht ausdrücklich referiert.
In un post recente avevamo riferito che “a detta del comandante italiano Graziano, [l’hezbollah] collabora tanto bene con l’UNIFIL nel Libano“. Ci siamo invece dimenticati di aggiungere che il generale Graziano sembra soffrire di una falsa modestia veramente fuori luogo, poiché anche il rovescio della medaglia, e cioè il fatto che, viceversa, anche l’Unifil non collabora maluccio con i terroristi dell’hezbollah, è, per così dire, carino. Ad esempio, all’inizio di marzo
L’organizzazione antisemitica Hezbollah, da parte sua, secondo una dichiarazione recente del suo segretario generale Nasrallah, si considera tuttora in guerra con Israele (“die Jüdische” del 05/09/2008) e sembra anche più massicciamente armata di prima di quella nuova “missione di pace” voluta da gente come Prodi, D’Alema e Rice.
Dire che uno più uno fa due, e cioè che l’UNIFIL è servito e serve a camuffare e con ciò a sostenere i preparativi di guerra di sterminio dell’Iran contro Israele, sarebbe tuttavia molto esagerato. E sarebbe ancora peggio dire che tutto questo sarebbe stato previsto già dall’allora presidente di consiglio Romano Prodi quando si impegnò tanto per impedire ad Israele di sconfiggere efficacemente quelli che intendono annientarla, arrivando perfino a proporre come mediatore per la risoluzione “pacifica” del conflitto fra Hezbollah e Israele proprio un rappresantante dei tele-comandanti dei terroristi jihadisti, l’iraniano Ali Larijani.
Eh no: e non si può proprio dire che, come ebbe a dire il defunto presidente del Consiglio centrale degli Ebrei in Germania, Paul Spiegel, “dietro il grido di pace si trincerano gli assassini”! Non si può!
che sa l’inglese e che ammirava tanto il sig. Massimo D’Alema per avere saputo portare la sinistra italiana a una guerra (forse quasi fino a quando camminò pubblicamente a braccetto con l’hezbollah).
Poiché a che tipo di guerra (guarda caso) il D’Alemah ha portato la sinistra o il governo di centro-sinistra italiano di allora lo spiega bene Julia Gorin:
For the past eight years, I’ve been in a lonely place politically. I don’t mean the kind of lonely that conservatives generally find themselves in. I’m talking about utter desolation, for there are just as few conservatives as liberals where I’ve been. One of the only non-Serbian Americans to do so, I watched with steady interest for the better part of a decade the clockwork predictability of the fallout from our forgotten Kosovo intervention, a bombing campaign against an emerging post-Communist democracy rooted in Judeo-Christian values–on behalf of tribalistic, blood-code-following nominal Muslims claiming oppression and no less than genocide and ethnic cleansing.
Watching the Albanians predictably move on to terrorizeMacedonia within a few months of our intervention that would “contain” the conflict, and then watching Albanians turn their weapons on NATO peacekeepers within 18 months, I wondered what it would take to get a national discussion going about that huge, self-destructive debacle. What would it take to have the debate that, it must be said despite my hobby of mocking Europeans, the German public had in 2001 when it put its politicians’ feet to the fire after learning the hoax that their country had been party to, thanks to a German documentary unapologetically titled “It Began with a Lie.”
