Defend Israel.

Reject Barbarism.

by Ferdinand III

In the past 10 years, 1.500 Israeli Jews have been murdered by Muslims and Arabs. A further 17.000 have been wounded, 40% of these victims suffering from permanent damage. These are facts that the media rarely emphasizes or even mentions. For some mentally deranged, culturally disturbed reason, the 350 million Arabs and Muslims who throng in various kleptocratic and undemocratic states, and who surround the 5 million Jews in Israel, are declared to be 'the underdogs'. What fantasy world do we live in, when we will not defend the outpost of our own civilisation, ringed as it is by a culture and a cult which by its own internal illogic and impulse demands our destruction? The Arab and Muslim world is awash in anti-Semiticism and this is one reason amongst many that they will never join the ranks of the civilised. Recently some 1 million Arab Egyptians thronged downtown Cairo screaming and parading that Jerusalem and Israel must be taken, Gaza 'freed', and the Jew eliminated.

Giulio Meotti, a journalist with Il Foglio, and the author of the brilliant and very disturbing book 'A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel’s Victims of Terrorism' which I reviewed here, wrote the following about the our need to defend Israel. The onslaught against Israel might start with the Arab and Muslim cultural and theological hatred of the Jew, but as Meotti so rightly states, it will not end there.

Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote that it was words, not machinery, that produced Auschwitz. Now the call for Israel’s destruction echoes through schools and mosques, textbooks and newspapers, TV series and pseudo “documentaries.” And not only in the Arab world. Thanks to satellite channels, Hezbollah’s al-Manar and Hamas’ al-Aqsa TV stations can beam their incitement and hatred for the Jews into European living rooms, radicalizing Muslim immigrants.

That’s why Israel and its Western allies must launch a campaign to charge organizations and leaders who commit incitement, enlisting the help of attorneys, journalists and writers to testify on the endless litanies of paranoia and genocidal perversion. Such people risk their career and life daily by denouncing the blood libels, and Israel should support them.....

Brave groups, such as UN Watch, can support the battle in legal forums. They could launch a counter campaign against UNESCO’s racist policy on Judaism’s holy sites (Rachel’s tomb and the Cave of Patriarchs in Hebron were just designed as “mosques.”) In 2009, a similar campaign prevented Farouk Hosni, the Egyptian minister who said that he “would burn Israeli books himself if found in Egyptian libraries” from becoming UNESCO’s head.

Moreover, human rights groups should be bombarded with the untold Israeli statistics: The 17,000 people wounded in terror attacks; the 1,600 civilians killed; the 12,000 rockets fired on southern Israeli cities; the fact that some 40% of wounded Israelis will remain with permanent disabilities.

There are wounded heroes who just want to tell their story. They should be invited to speak in the courts because they are the survivors of current-day genocide......

This is an historical battle that Israel can win with the support of Westerners who still care about the fate of their civilization. To the Spanish fascists who were saying “Viva la muerte!”, the Republicans replied: “No pasarán.” We should offer the same response to contemporary death cultists. As history has taught us, while it begins with Jews, it does not end with Jews.

Hating the Jew is a sign of a mental deformity. It is ignorance. Jewish ideals and beliefs are essential to the creation of a stable society and a culture which venerates life not abortion; education not cult ignorance; trade and industry not bombs and death; and civil order and peace, not mayhem destruction and rapine. Jewish theology and Judaic practice is the opposite of Islam. The former is a civilised, intelligent success. The latter merely another pagan-fascist death cult.
