It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע


How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Israel/Nazi Connection


The tired meme that Israel is a Nazi/Apartheid state continues to get plenty of play among the brain dead. As long as they're on the subject, let's talk about a legitimate connection between Nazis and the Middle East, specifically through the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini.

In 1929, following many years of relative peace and calm between Arabs and Jews, Husseini incited the Arabs to riot, claiming that Jews were attempting to defile mosques in Jerusalem, by calling out, "Itback al-Yahud," "Slaughter the Jews!" On August 23rd, the day after British officials assured Jewish leaders they had control of the situation, full scale rioting broke out throughout the Palestinian Mandate.

From Palestine Facts:
Arab mobs attacked Jews in Jerusalem, Motza, Hebron, Safed, Jaffa, and other parts of the country. The Old City of Jerusalem was hit particularly hard. By the next day, the Haganah was able to mount a defense and further attacks in Jerusalem were repulsed. But, the violence in Jerusalem generated rumors throughout the country, many carrying fabricated accounts of Jewish attempts to defile Muslim holy places, all to inflame the Arab residents. Villages were plundered and destroyed by Arab mobs. While attacks on Jews in Tel Aviv and Haifa were thwarted by Jewish defenses, there were Jewish deaths in Hebron, where 67 Jewish men and women were slaughtered and Safed, where 18 Jews were killed, as well as scattered other losses totaling 133 Jewish deaths, with more than 300 wounded.
The British took no action to protect the Jews in Hebron, the population either being killed or forced to flee, with no Jews living there again until 1967.

Once Naziism took hold in Germany, the Mufti was all over it like a monkey on a banana. Again from Palestine Facts:
In 1937 the Grand Mufti expressed his solidarity with Germany, asking the Nazi Third Reich to oppose establishment of a Jewish state, stop Jewish immigration to Palestine, and provide arms to the Arab population. Following an assassination attempt on the British Inspector-General of the Palestine Police Force and the murder by Arab extremists of Jews and moderate Arabs, the Arab Higher Committee was declared illegal by the British. The Grand Mufti lost his office of President of the Supreme muslim Council, his membership on the Waqf committee, and was forced into exile in Syria in 1937. The British deported the Arab mayor of Jerusalem along with other members of the Arab Higher Committee.

According to documentation from the Nuremberg and Eichmann trials, the Nazi Germany SS helped finance al-Husseini's efforts in the 1936-39 revolt in Palestine. Adolf Eichmann actually visited Palestine and met with al-Husseini at that time and subsequently maintained regular contact with him later in Berlin.
In 1940, Husseini urged the Axis Powers to acknowledge the Arab right to:
...settle the question of Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries in accordance with the national and racial interests of the Arabs and along the lines similar to those used to solve the Jewish question in Germany and Italy.
After aiding the pro-Nazi revolt in Syria, Husseini spent the rest of the war in Berlin as Hitler's guest, where he advocated the extermination of Jews and helped recruit Muslims to help the SS kill Jews in the Balkans. An Eichmann deputy testified at the Nuremberg trials:
The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and had been a collaborator and adviser of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of this plan. ... He was one of Eichmann's best friends and had constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures. I heard him say, accompanied by Eichmann, he had visited incognito the gas chamber of Auschwitz.
Now for those apologists who will say that this was one man who does not represent anything in the here and now, I will say this. When Husseini died he was succeeded in the leadership of radical Palestinian Arabs by his nephew, Mohammed Abdel-Raouf Arafat As Qudwa al-Hussaeini, better known as Yasser Arafat.

But let us return to Hebron shall we? If we adhere to the Israeli as Nazi canard we could extrapolate that the Israeli Nazis would, since they have the weapons, drive all Arabs from the city to make way for religious Jews who wish to live in the city that is the second holiest in Judaism. Instead, the government of Ehud Olmert forcibly expelled Jews in the name of peace. One action of removal took place in early December, 2008 as the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was falling apart with an escalation of Hamas rocket fire into Israel.

But I'm sure the Leftist Liberal Jew/Israel bashers will continue to wrongly call Israel a Nazi state. Let's see what these morons make of this AP story that appeared in the Jerusalem Post.
Palestinian authorities disbanded a youth orchestra from a West Bank refugee camp after it played for a group of Holocaust survivors in Israel, a local official said on Sunday.

Adnan Hindi of the Jenin camp called the Holocaust a "political issue" and accused conductor Wafa Younis of unknowingly dragging the children into a political dispute.

He added that Younis has been barred from the camp and the apartment where she taught the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra has been boarded up.

On Saturday, The Jerusalem Post found that leaders and representatives of the Jenin refugee camp condemned the participation of Palestinian teenagers from the camp in a concert honoring Holocaust survivors in Holon last week.

~snip~

The event drew strong condemnations from refugee camp leaders and political activists, who accused the organizers of exploiting the children for "political purposes." [Shtuey note: Ironic to hear this from a leader of the PA mafia that has been exploiting its children for 40 years]

Adnan al-Hinda, director of the Popular Committee for Services in the Jenin refugee camp, said that the participation of the children in the concert was a "dangerous matter" because it was directed against the cultural and national identity of the Palestinians. [Shtuey note: This identity being that of people who see the Jews as subhuman and only worthy of genocide, as advocated by the Grand Mufti and his successor Yassir Arafat]

He accused "suspicious elements" of being behind the Holon event, saying they were seeking to "impact the national culture of the young generation and cast doubt about the heroism and resistance of the residents of the camp during the Israeli invasion in April 2002." [Shtuey note: Apparently, Palestinian children are not permitted to see Israelis as anything other than their oppressors. Knowing there is a separate reality might lead to something terrible, like peace breaking out]

Ramzi Fayad, a spokesman for various political factions in the Jenin refugee camp, also condemned the participation of the teenagers in the Holocaust event, saying all the groups were strongly opposed to any form of normalization with Israel.

Leaflets distributed in the Jenin area over the weekend also attacked the event and accused the organizers of exploiting the children. The leaflets also warned the Palestinians against participating in similar events in the future.
Quick Conflationists, you have 2 minutes hate to come up with a way to blame the Israelis/Jews for this. Go!
