We know it from history that brutalizing the language is a first step toward brutalizing the people. − Jack Engelhard.
wie Sie höchstwahrscheinlich wissen, haben wir in diesem Blog (oder doch zumindest ich, Baby!) Ihnen und Ihrem kritisch-wissenschaftlichen Schaffen bislang äußerst wohlwollend gegenüber gestanden. Was mich persönlich betrifft, darf ich mich sogar rühmen, Sie schon mehrfach gegen Ihre Feinde in Schutz genommen zu haben. Leider hat mich die Lektüre einer im März vergangenen Jahres von Ihnen veröffentlichten Schrift jedoch sehr betrübt, denn ich bin dort bedauerlicherweise auf einige Äußerungen gestoßen, die mich doch an Ihrer Wissenschaftlichkeit haben zweifeln lassen. Unter der Überschrift “Was erlauben LizasWelt? Über die Notwendigkeit einer Selbstkritik der Pro-Israel-Szene” behaupten Sie dort z. B.:
Entweder Israel verabschiedet sich unzweideutig von allen “Einstaatenlösungen” der radikalen Linken (wie Judith Butler und ihrem Fanclub etc.) und der radikalen Rechten (wie Bennett oder Caroline Glick) oder der Traum eines jüdischen Staates ist dahin.
According to the statistics provided by hakolyehudi, between Rosh Hashana 2015 and 2016, there were:
7550 Palestinian terror attacks targeting Israeli men, women, and children.
40 Israelis were murdered by terrorists.
650 Israelis were wounded by terrorists.
And the New Year has not started any better. In the last 24 hours:
*a 7-year-old boy was wounded by “rocks” near Kiryat Arba.
*an IDF soldier was wounded by a grenade thrown at soldiers at Al-Khader.
*a Border policeman was wounded by an IED at Abu Dis.
More than 20 “rock” and Molotov attacks took place throughout Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem.

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.)
Another horrific Palestinian terror attack has left another Israeli dead. IDF soldier, 21-year-old Tuvia Weissman, was stabbed to death Thursday evening in a Rami Levy supermarket at Sha’ar Benyamin. Weissman was shopping in the market in civilian clothes when he was attacked by two 14-year-old terrorists.
He leaves behind a wife and a infant child only a few months old.
Weissman, his wife, and child. Continue reading Another Israeli Murdered on the Altar of Political Correctness
Ein Traum? Ein Alptraum? Wer weiß das schon.
Wir brauchen einen Terror-Staat. Einen, in dem die Politiker Terroristen sind, die Polizisten Terroristen sind und auch die Menschen, die an dem Tisch sitzen, an dem du dich niederlässt, Terroristen sind.
Es gibt Staaten, die Terroristen unterstützen und ihnen eine sichere Zuflucht geben. Aber das reicht nicht. Wir wollen kein weiteres Pakistan oder Iran. Diesmal machen wir keine halben Sachen. Was wir wollen ist das echte Produkt. Terroristen von ganz oben bis ganz unten. Terroristen überall. Einen Staat in dem jeder Teil der Regierung und das ganze Land aus nichts anderem als Terroristen besteht.
It was just yesterday that your humble servant went to great lengths to point out how absurdly easy it is for Hamas terrorists from Gaza to stroll across the border at Nahal Oz.
And in the same blog, we pointed out the untenable position that the group of IDF soldiers stationed there are in, undermanned and handcuffed by the absurd IDF rules of engagement.
Well guess what happened following the riots this morning? Apparently (no one knows for sure how many) 30 terrorists waltzed across the border and infiltrated Kissufim.
They found their way into an armory on the kibbutz and stole 6 M16s–and are now (as of 12 pm) somewhere in the area taking potshots at Israeli men, women, and children.
Obama stellte sich der Nation als Sohn schwarzer und weißer Eltern vor. Seitdem hat er zwischen Christentum und Islam gependelt wie ein Schürzenjäger in einer Bar.
Um seine identitätspolitische Dreifaltigkeit zu komplettieren, hat er jetzt eine dritte Religion und und eine dritte Rasse hinzugefügt.
Beim letzten Chanukka-Dinner im Weißen Haus behauptete er, er habe eine jüdische Seele. In einer Synagogenrede im vergangenen Monat bezeichnete er sich als „ein Ehrenmitglied des Stammes“. Jetzt hat sein ehemaliger leitender Berater ihn mit den Worten zitiert: „Ich denke, ich bin das Nächste zu einem Juden, das je in diesem Büro gesessen hat.“
Selbstverständlich ist Barack Obama auch Ire. Er behauptete: „Ich betrachte mich als Ehrenitaliener, weil ich alles liebe, was italienisch ist.“ Newsweek nannte ihn 2008 den „ersten weiblichen Präsidenten“, weil er „Genderkonventionen“ durchbrochen habe, und beförderte ihn vier Jahre später zum „ersten schwulen Präsidenten“. Kabinettssekretär Lu und der Kongressabgeordnete Honda behaupteten, er sei „der erste asiatisch-amerikanische Präsident“. Continue reading Daniel Greenfield: “Barack Obama, wiedergeborener Jude”
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”. Continue reading “Who is the perpetrator, who is the victim?” German public TV “reporting” on the anti-Semitic Har Nof massacre – an example of the “balanced” German approach to the “Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”
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.
