I’ve recently started writing articles on a very small university paper under the heading of ‘International News’. Since I very rarely actually write anything here, I will start putting these up on the blog for you all to read.
It is common knowledge that every country around the world has its own set of problems. Some have big and serious problems such as Afghanistan, while others like Australia are quite well off. However, in late June in Toronto, Canada 180 protesters from “Queers Against Israeli Apartheid” (http://queersagainstapartheid.org/) marched in an attempt to “reignite Toronto’s queer community in the fight against apartheid”. Israel has many problems, some relating to security, others relating to the issue of the Palestinians. Naming your group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid draws attention to the dirty little secret in the Middle East, that is homosexuals are not welcome there. Except for Israel that it. The protest group echoes another similarly ridiculously named group, Queers for Palestine. Both groups ignore the fact that Israel is the most liberal country in the Middle East allowing anyone almost anyone who is prosecuted to find shelter within its borders. There is a reason why the Baha’I faith decided to move the remains of Bab from Iran to Haifa and it wasn’t for the view.
Some people on the fringe of both sides of politics will believe anything that you tell them about Israel or Jews. If you needed more evidence of blatant lies being printed about Israel look no further then the claim being put forward by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that Israeli soldiers kidnap Palestinians to steal their organs and sell them in the black market. Did I mention that Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt refused to apologise to Israel for this disgusting report. I think Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman got it right when he said “It is regrettable that the Swedish foreign ministry does not intervene when it comes to a blood libel against Jews, which reminds one of Sweden’s conduct during World War II when it also did not intervene.” It is these sorts of allegations and lies that regularly rise up around the world which then must be combated in the media as well as at university campuses.

I have a major deadline coming up so I won’t be posting for a while. I’m just going to briefly comment on the Akko riots. Firstly, it was a disgrace on both parts. Regardless of whether the Arab driver was drinking and blasting loud music as he drove through the Jewish Quarter during Yom Kippur, the response by the Jews in the area was disgusting. This may seem obvious to you and me but if someone is upsetting the peace, call the police! Don’t take matters into your own hand by trying to stone the man! Secondly, the response given by Arab-Israeli MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL) was disgraceful. And as well as this, Arab MK Mohammed Barakeh stated that the alleged attack by Jews was “similar to the pogroms that Jews were exposed to at the hands of the Nazi gangs in Germany.” We really just don’t need those types of comments and it just makes you look bad and ignorant. Thankfully law and order has been restored and I really hope this won’t happen next Yom Kippur.
As a treat, here is a documentary that I’ve found on YouTube that have some significance on upcoming events with Iran – enjoy.

Breaking news! Jews are responsible for all the world’s woes. Now its our fault that the world’s global financial situation is going to hell. You would think that after all our expertise in managing the world’s finance for so long that we should see a little crisis like this a long way off. But no according to Hamas its all our fault. Honestly do they really think that anyone outside of the Arab world takes them seriously, wait, don’t answer that.
The crisis was the result of “bad administrative and financial management and a bad banking system put into place and controlled by the Jewish lobby,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said in a statement.
And on that note I wish everyone well over the fast!

If you’ve ever wondered how to stop the cycle of violence that plagues Israel and the Gaza Strip & West Bank then I have the answer for you, education. This may seem a little bit strange but education has the most say in a child’s outlook on the world. When I say education I am not just referring to going to school and then coming home to do homework and study. I am talking about the education that children receive from their parents, their friends, their religion and the media both independent and state-sponsored.
When a child learns to hate a particular people or religion from an early age, that hatred stays with them for a long time. When the message is continually hammered into them from every source of education it is almost impossible to undo the effects of such an upbringing. Of course, I am talking about the education that is continually forced upon Palestinian children. In my opinion, it would take generations to undo the damage being done to the Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. However outlining a brief plan of such a solution is not the point of this post. My aim is to show one particular grotesque way in which such a hatred of Israel and Jews is being fostered upon Palestinian children.
For example, a recent article in Pajamas Media titled ‘How Gaza Kids Are Spending Their Summer Vacation‘ is a great example of this ‘education’. When most people think of school holidays (especially summer) they think of going to the beach to relax, maybe going to a summer camp (known as a Sport and Recreation camp in Australia), you get the picture. However in the Gaza Strip, summer holidays means something completely different:
‘Hamas and Islamic Jihad, ever mindful of their responsibilities as pillars of the Palestinian community, are running their annual summer camps for thousands of youngsters…In addition to receiving healthy doses of religious and political indoctrination, they’ll be learning how to handle weapons and navigate assault courses.’
Hang on you say, did I read that last part right? They are letting children handle weapons? These sorts of descriptions sadly no longer surprise me (think Farfour, the Hamas version of Micky Mouse), indeed they are almost the norm now in Gaza. However to somebody else who has no idea about Palestinian society this would come as a shock and rightly so, this sort of treatment is disgusting.
‘An Islamic Jihad operative was at pains to point out to Ynet that children would only be handling dummy rockets, not real ones. Allah forbid that they should play with real Qassams or Katyushas — someone could lose an eye.’
Because that is any better…
Of course, this not anything new. During March I wrote a post very similar to this one in which I showed a video of children giving out flowers and lollies to passing Palestinians celebrating the recent (then) terrorist attackat Dimona. These sorts of actions just illustrate my point of how education is the key to stopping this conflict. Golda Meir, a former Prime Minister of Israel got it right when she said that peace would only be possible “when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us”.

Yes guys it that time of the year when the PA decide to run another vilification of the Jews. As you know, (if you have been following Palestinian Media Watch PMW), this is nothing knew. In fact you can see examples of Jew vilification here and here. Now here’s the new one from the PA, according to them, Israel is using a special genetically altered kind of rat to drive out Arab families from the Old City of Jerusalem. In fact:
‘According to the PA papers, the Israeli-Jerusalem rat is:
1. Immune to rat poison
2. Aggressive and larger than usual
3. Unafraid of cats and able to scare them away
4. Highly fertile, with females giving birth to 140 young rats a year, four times the normal average
5. Highly selective, as Jewish residents of Jerusalem apparently are not affected by these rats’
Bear in mind that this isn’t coming from some fringe media source or anything like that. It’s coming from Al-Hayat Al-Jadida (you can get google to translate the paper) which is controlled by the PA. In other words these paper prints what the PA wants it to, I’m sure you can see just how serious the PA is with negotiating with Israel. I’m sure you can see the stupidity of Olmert and Bush in trying to make a peace agreement with these so-called moderates. In fact I met the ambassador of the PA to Australia earlier on in the year, you can see a synopsis of that meeting here.
PA’s Super Rat
This is just another lame attempt by the PA to alter the image of Israel and Jews in general. It should be pretty obvious to most that this is complete crap, but still its funny nonetheless.

Sorry for the long time between posts. I’ll be honest, its because nothing really noteworthy has happened, until now. As I’m sure you’ve all been aware now, there has been another terrorist attack in Israel, specifically Jerusalem. As you can see from this awesome clip below, the terrorist gets absolutely destroyed, enjoy.
Unfortunately, the terrorist managed to kill three people and wounded 45 people.
The driver rammed at least two buses, overturning one, and crushed several cars in a five-minute spree just after midday (7pm AEST) in west Jerusalem.
However this brings up some important issues; how was this guy allled to get into Israel? Quite easily actually.
He was identified as an Arab resident of East Jerusalem, whoheld an Israeli identification card, with full access to all parts of the country.
As well as this the guy was known to the police for raping a former girlfriend, he served two years. Hopefully, next time Israel will do a better job in not letting these people get citizenship. I really think that a citizenship test should be given to every Israeli citizen. Of course this begs another questions, why are we issueing Israeli ID cards to a possible fith element anyway?
The attack came at a highly sensitive time in intra-Palestinian politics, with Hamas struggling to hold together the truce with Israel, which has seen limited supplies allowed into the Gaza Strip in return for a stop to rocket fire on Israeli settlements.
Egypt immediately locked the Rafah crossing into the Strip, which had been due to open around the time of the attack. Hundreds of Palestinians on either side rioted in response.
Israeli security forces were last night interrogating the terrorist’s family, amid calls by enraged members of parliament for them to be deported en masse to Gaza.
More on this event here.

Sorry guys for the large break. I’ve had a lot of work to get through, but know the worst is over, yay! Israel has made it to her 60th birthday which is something to celebrate, even if there those who can’t appreciate it, here and here, hat tip to LGF.
My favourite of these links is the Daily Kos one, just read this and laugh.
It thus emerged as a major power and a formidable challenger of existing Arabic powers that will decide the fate of the world, coordinated assassination of President Kennedy which unnaturally led to the hasty re-evaluation of American foreign policy for adjustion that align with the interests of Israeli state for total compatibility in irreversibly entangled alliance.

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now of the cyclone in Burma which devastated the country. What I find so appalling is that the ruling military Junta is not allowing any foreign aid into the country! The obvious reason of course is they don’t want the UN to come in with aid and then see the human rights violations that have been committed. I’ve just recently found out that approximately 80,000 people have been killed by this cyclone.
“The storm came into our village, and a giant wave washed in, dragging everything into the sea,” said one man in his 20s, who had trekked in from Kanyinkone village. “Houses collapsed, buildings collapsed, and people were swept away. I only survived by hanging on to a big tree. “Only about 20 per cent of the people survived in our village. I am the only one who survived in my family. My wife and my two children died in the storm.”
The Labutta district was hard hit when Nargis and its huge storm surge slammed ashore on Saturday, devastating the low-lying Irrawaddy delta. “The waves were so strong, they ripped off all my clothes. I was left naked hanging in a tree,” said one teenage survivor. Based on stories from people emerging from the countryside, only about 20 per cent of people in the area survived, Labutta residents said.
Absolutely disgusting. As for remembering, its Israel’s birthday in a few days, yay! Israel has been celebrating its dependence in a very IDF way, with Paratroopers from around the world jumping in Israel. Also, here is a very interesting and special story from a man who served in the 2nd Lebanon War. Some of the things he and his men had to cope with are just incredible. Its interesting because the person being interviewed, Dr. Yehuda David, believes that Israel could have won the war if given 3 more days.

I’m going to be talking and linking about a few things here, but first how’s this for an eye-catching title? “Lesbians Pick Fight With Gay Women”. This is not joke, its an article about a court case in which the residents from the island of Lesbos are suing gay women!
Next, I’m sure everyone has heard about what happened to those poor children in Austria (locked in a cellar for their whole life). The most interesting thing (and very disturbing) to emerge from this is the fact that the kids thought they were in heaven when they emerged into the sunlight. As well as this, these kids speak in their own private ‘language’ to each other. Words can’t really describe just how, excuse my french, f**ked up that is. Their development is going to be damaged for life, besides being born from incest, I doubt these kids will ever have a normal life. I feel so sorry for them.
Now here is another strange situation that just happened on our metaphorical doorstep (for Australia that is). ‘Timor troops party with rebels’, yep you read right, these people, who many would consider terrorists are being treated like a ‘commander in chief.’
Opposition Fretilin MPs said the party was “bizarre” and sent the wrong message to the people of East Timor.
“It’s quite immature and also looks bizarre that some, who you call as a rebel who has also been accused of conducting an attack against state, is welcomed like a big head or commander in chief – it is not the right message,” said Arsenio Bano, a Fretilin MP and member of the parliamentary defence and security committee. “Anyone in this country will think now that if you need to get attention from the President or important men, you just need to make trouble – a lot of trouble will allow them to talk to you and negotiate with you.”
Today Israel and Jews all across the world have celebrated Holocaust Day. I have a couple of friends in Poland at the moment who are marking this day while being in Auschwitz on a program called March of the Living. I myself attended this program 2 years ago and I definitely recommend it. The Palestinians however are remembering this day in a different manner (link above).
Meanwhile, Hamas television marked the 63rd anniversary of the Holocaust by suggesting it was orchestrated by Jews to wipe out the disabled among them in preparation for the creation of the state of Israel.
According to the Jerusalem-based Palestinian Media Watch, the head of the Palestinian Centre for Strategic Research, Amin Dabur, said: “The Israeli Holocaust – the whole thing was a joke, and part of the perfect show that (Zionist leader and future Israeli prime minister) Ben Gurion put on”.
The “young energetic and able” were sent to Israel, while the handicapped were sent “so there would be a Holocaust”.
How disgusting is that?
A two-minute siren sounded across Israel at 10am yesterday in memory of the estimated six million Jews who died in the Nazi death camps. People stopped were they were and cars came to a standstill.

Just wishing everybody a happy Pesach and Chag Sameach! I am definitely looking forward to this Pesach as my mother will be making her trademark (and best) chocolate Matza’s as well as this, the Seder which I will be going to will have around 40 people! Before I leave, here’s the link for Michael Totten’s new post about the tribes in Iraq and how the Marines are trying to use them to contain a sustainable democracy.
Captain Quintin Jones and Mayor Abu Abdullah
Also I leave you with another link to an article written by Margot Dudkevitch from Infolive.tv about the amount of weapons that are being smuggled into the Gaza Strip through the most interesting ways.
In recent months, Iran has increased its efforts to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip via the sea and also tunnels between Egypt and Gaza, sending the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups there not only weapons and rifles but advanced Iranian made rockets and mortar shells.
A report in the Jerusalem Post says that many of the weapons are too big to smuggle through the tunnels built underneath the Philadelphi Corridor linking Egypt and the Gaza Strip, and therefore resort to dropping them off the waters in Gaza in waterproof sealed tubes.
