Does Someone Smell A Jerusalem Rat?

Posted by Atilla89 on July 29, 2008

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

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.

On Various Things…

Posted by Atilla89 on May 2, 2008

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.

You think?

“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.

Jordanian MP’s Call To End Peace Treaty With Israel; Moses High On Sinai?

Posted by Atilla89 on March 14, 2008

I’ve decided on a double post for today. Jordan, at the moment has the best Arab alliance with Israel. However, that could start to come into doubt in regards to this news. Hat tip: Eye On The World.

At least 38 members of the Jordanian Parliament signed a petition on Thursday calling on Jordan to end its peace treaty with Israel, according to Ansamed. The parliament refused to vote on the petition, and several Islamic MPs left the hall in protest.

Islamic Action Front (IAF) head MP Hamzeh Mansour explained that the petition was a response to Israel’s “war crimes in Gaza,” as he termed recent IDF counterterrorism operations. The IAF would need a unanimous parliamentary vote in order to begin the process of ending Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel.

Personally, I don’t think Jordan will stop its peace treaty with Israel. For one thing, both countries have worked exceptionally hard to get their relations with each other where they are now. As well as this, I doubt America would be to happy with Jordan as well. Now something slightly more interesting. For those that are atheists, I doubt you will greet this with any major surprise, for those that aren’t, well, this guy may be onto something. Hat tip to Rantings of a Sandmonkey.

High on Mount Sinai, Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God deliver the Ten Commandments, an Israeli researcher claimed in a study published this week.

Such mind-altering substances formed an integral part of the religious rites of Israelites in biblical times, Benny Shanon, a professor of cognitive psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem wrote in the Time and Mind journal of philosophy.

“As far Moses on Mount Sinai is concerned, it was either a supernatural cosmic event, which I don’t believe, or a legend, which I don’t believe either, or finally, and this is very probable, an event that joined Moses and the people of Israel under the effect of narcotics,” Shanon told Israeli public radio on Tuesday.

Moses was probably also on drugs when he saw the “burning bush,” suggested Shanon, who said he himself has dabbled with such substances.

The Bible says people see sounds, and that is a clasic phenomenon,” he said citing the example of religious ceremonies in the Amazon in which drugs are used that induce people to “see music.”

He mentioned his own experience when he used ayahuasca, a powerful psychotropic plant, during a religious ceremony in Brazil‘s Amazon forest in 1991. “I experienced visions that had spiritual-religious connotations,” Shanon said.

He said the psychedelic effects of ayahuasca were comparable to those produced by concoctions based on bark of the acacia tree, that is frequently mentioned in the Bible.

Prince Harry Leaves Afghanistan

Posted by Atilla89 on March 1, 2008

Just in case you didn’t know, Prince Harry (nicknamed by his men the “ginger bullet magnet”) who was serving in Afghanistan has been pulled out of there because of leaks from the media, specifically The Drudge Report. Of coarse due to the fact that he is a bullet magnet, he can’t stay in Afghanistan anymore which is a real shame as his time in the military has started to take away the image of a rich brat living the playboy life. Having said this, I have a bit of a mixed opinion regarding this, its not as if Al-Qaeda know which base he is in or where his current location is… But the powers that be have decided that he is to much of a risk now and away he goes. Pajamas Media has a nice little tribute article about this. Here is an section that I really like.

In many ways, this is an ideal tabloid story, tapping in to uncomplicated veins of patriotism, bravery, and the still-strong respect for the institution of the monarchy (if not always its personnel). For the more discerning observer, too, there are plenty of pleasing echoes to the tale; the revelation that it was the monarch herself who told Harry of his imminent deployment; that it was to Afghanistan, setting for the colonial exploits romanticised by Kipling and MacDonald Fraser’s Flashman novels , that he was posted; and that he was serving alongside the last vestiges of that imperial army – the feared Gurkhas of Nepal, the best infantrymen in the world. Why, even his nickname, Harry, recalls famous warrior princes of Shakespearean legend; should he succeed to the throne, it would be as Henry IX.

I love Fraser’s novels, Harry Flashman for the win!

And Now For Something Completely Different…

Posted by Atilla89 on October 18, 2007

I’ve decided to make a collection of my favourite Star Wars fan films.

Now the first one is probably the most famous one on YouTube. It is called Ryan vs. Dorkman and produced by Michael Scott and Ryan Wieber and is the first of many spin offs. It’s very well done with heaps of cool effects.

The next one is the sequel to RvD called RvD 2. One of the best fan films I have seen, ever. Its got cool moves, cool lightsabers and probably the best effects used in fan films. The lower quality video is below but you can see the higher quality one here.

And now for one of my all time favorites. They always said Asians do it best, but they really are not lying this time. Check this one out for some awesome martial arts and force techniques.
