My friend (with long experience in the game) in Ireland has told me that the All-Ireland football final between Kerry and Donegal was very poor. This has serious implications because Kerry is the home of great Gaelic Football and great Footballers.
I did not see it but reading just how the scores came I feel it was a very poor example of Gaelic Football.
The reason for these consistently poor football performances may be related to the following:
The worst thing is the way of winning. It is wrong for an amateur sport to go for a win at all costs strategy. There is a difference to going for a win and going for a win at all costs. If you disagree there is no difference best not to read further!
I blame the ignorance of most modern supporters. They drum up a county and parish type frenzy.This is perhaps inevitable but allied to ignorance of Gaelic Football it is lethal.
Gaelic football knowledge is not at all what it was when I was a boy. Since then it has become hip to follow soccer or rugby.
But there is just no comparison. Gaelic Football is a unique game.
You cannot borrow at all from these other games. There has to be (within reason) a strict division.
The skills are totally different. The layout and positions of the teams to play this game must be and should be totally different to correspond with the fact that there is no off side, with the implication that Gaelic Football must be positional and open.
People have in the interests of win at all costs tampered with this once great game. The result is confusion and poor games as in this year’s Final.
The game is in huge danger. Hope I am wrong but I may be right!
This is an extract called a “rant” by David Icke and in it he says that Zionism is a secret society, In it Icke uses the “House of Rothchilde” meme which is always used in such lies and lying
Note that Icke begins his rant by claiming that “The jewish people have been ercilessly used by the House of Rothchilde and the secret society called Zionism”
This is the technique that is always used. The trick that they use is to créate a separation between Jews and Zionism.
But Zionism has always existed as long as the Jewish people as a nation has existed. The history of the Jewish people has been the history of the Jewish people as a nation, or struggling to be a nation.
ANSWER OF 4INTERNATIONAL TO GALLOWAY
4international has one answer to Galloway and that is that Israel is completely a legitimate country for very many reasons which lie both in ancient history and in contemporary politics.
Galloway claims to be a Marxist but even here Galloway has to lie about Karl Marx who paid an important visit to Jerusalem as part of his work as a reporter for a newspaper.
Galloway says that Jews took over the area of Palestine from the Arabs. So therefore Israel is illegal.
But the answer to this is that Jews have lived in this area of the world for 3500 years as a nation. HG Wells is a major figure in English history and in English literature and he said that when Jews returned from the exile in Babylon that they were the finished article, being a complete nation, united behind a conscious history (their Bible). HG Wells knew that the Bible is not just religion but it is also a history of a people.
Jews have always lived in this part of the world. There is great proof of this in the report of Karl Marx written in 1853. What Marx found and wrote about most objectively is that in 1853 there was a majority of Jews in Jerusalem and that these Jews in Jerusalem in 1853 outnumbered Muslims by 2 to 1.
Note my dear Jewish friends and my dear progressive friends of all religions that statement by Karl Marx based on an actual visit to Jerusalem in 1853 is NOT the narrative of George Galloway today
That (majority of Jews in Jerusalem 1853) was not a sudden process. If Jews were that majority in 1853 then they were also a majority in 1800 and since these things move slowly also in say 1750
I trace my own ancestors in Ireland to 1770, that is an ancestor I can put a name (personality) to. Why does Galloway not dispute my right to live in Ireland!!!??? But he does with the Jews and with Israel their Homeland.
In doing so Galloway has to trample over history and in this case the history of the Karl Marx visit to Jerusalem.
The full article is on
This is an extract and here jared Israel the author is commenting on what Marx wrote. It is important because Jared makes the important point that long before the Zionist Congresses Jews were in Palestine and in the cities were there in large numbers. This is a most important answer to Galloway and shows how Galloway falsifies history, falsifies the story, and creates a new and false story. Galloway cannot proceed without that revision of history. But note, here he is revising Karl Marx. For us on the real and true left that is important to realise and internalise:
Notice that in 1853, 44 years before the first Zionist convention in Basel, Marx wrote that there were twice as many Jews as Moslems in Jerusalem.
According to Marx, the Jews were there because their passion for Jerusalem was so great it overcame their horror at how they were treated: “…the constant objects of Mussulman oppression and intolerance, insulted by the Greeks, persecuted by the Latins…”
EXTRACT FROM WHAT MARX WROTE
“[Quote from Marx starts here]
“The Mussulmans, forming about a fourth part of the whole, and consisting of Turks, Arabs and Moors, are, of course, the masters in every respect, as they are in no way affected with the weakness of their Government at Constantinople. Nothing equals the misery and suffering of the Jews at Jerusalem, inhabiting the most filthy quarter of the town, called hareth-el-yahoud, this quarter of dirt between Mount Zion and Mount Moriah, where their synagogues are situated – the constant objects of Mussulman oppression and intolerance, insulted by the Greeks, persecuted by the Latins and living only upon the scanty alms transmitted by their European brethren. The Jews, however, are not natives, but from distant and different countries, and are only attracted to Jerusalem by the desire of inhabiting the Valley of Jehosophat and to die in the very places where their Redemptor is to be expected.
‘Attending their death,’ says a French author, ‘they suffer and pray. Their regards turned to that mountain of Moriah, where once rose the temple of Solomon, and which they dare not approach, they shed tears on the misfortunes of Zion, and their dispersion over the world.’”
[Quote from Marx ends here]
NOTE GEORGE GALLOWAY THAT IS FROM THE SCIENTIFIC REPORT OF KARL MARX AND HIS 1853 VISIT to the historical city of the Jews Jerusalem
Truth in history is the best answer to these propaganda posts of Icke
It is NOT that Europe any more than America is Antisemitic as is often charged. Most ordinary people care very Little about what is happening between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. They are beset by other issues and other problems.
But the leaderships in both countries ARE Antisemitic. The American Christian evangelists have also in my opinión their own agenda.
I do not know if Bush was evangelical but he was surely close. Yet Bush as far as I remember was the first US President to articulate the deadly Palestinian State scenario. Also Bush did even more damage to Jews and to aiding the Jihad (in my opinión) because his overthrow of Saddam was removing the secularist block to the Jihad, and especially to the most deadly form of the Jihad in Iranian Millenarianism (armed with Nuclear)
It is leadership leadership leadership!
In Ireland as one example there is continaul ANTI ISRAEL political activity by (actually anti-Marxist) leftist groups which are led by Anarchists and by ISM advocates in the IPSC. There are also complete Antisemites in Government and those opposint these Antisemites are pro Two States.
In other words there is no leadership who get to the heart or even raise the central issues concerning the Palestine State, issues well outlined in the recent Martin Sherman article.
There is a complete and utter crisis of leadership in Israel itself, so much so that it is impossible at present for Israel to do what it needs to defend itself.
Ted Belman on http://www.israpundit.org has on the site a number of articles which describe how the Netanyahu Government is now making all the wrong moves.
These wrong moves such as opening the borders of Gaza to the entrance of huge amounts of cement and Steel are going to make further deadly attacks on Jews inevitable.
Every action has a cause and effect and the effect of Netanyahu blocking the overthrow of Hamas in the Protective Edge war is having its effect in spades. It is inexorable.
Having done the wrong thing in the war at every point he and Israel find themselves bereft of self respect.
They therefore are unable to withstand the massive propaganda power wielded by the Nazi inspired American Governments, and the Nazi inspired European Governments.
Such leadership brings on divisions in the people
But please do not blame the people.
For example the people, the ordinary people, are facing daily this same nazi inspired governamce in every country.
Israpundit also covers the moves of Danon. Yes support Danon but critically. Examine carefully the position of Danon. What precisely is he saying? Is that really what is needed? (I will return to that later)
Into the fray: The two-stage ‘solution’ …article by Jerusalem Post writer Martin Sherman with our commentary
This is an historic article by Martin Sherman because it follows and is an answer to the pivotal decision of the Swedish and British Governments to recognize a “Palestine” state. Sherman makes it clear in this article, quoting Palestinian Arabs themselves, that such a state is untenable and is only for the purpose of tearing down, likely through terror of one sort or another, the Jewish state. At the end of the article Sherman refers briefly to the fault of the Israeli State in not refuting these claims and moves towards a “Palestine” Arab state. It seems from this article that if they had decided to so refute then there was more than enough ammunition to convince the world that “Palestinianism” is Jihadism.
But they have not and are not doing so and that is the crunch issue in this Sherman article. Every article should lead on to a question “What to do next?”
In reading around the Swedish/Holocaust issue and in the article I wrote yesterday I left out a significant fact. As I stated the Swedish state and government as opposed to the Swedish people were up to their eye balls in collaborating with the Nazis. What struck me and what I left out of the article was the way that Shimon Peres has brown nosed these Swedish elites for so many years. Peres is old now but he has probably spent from say 1950 to 2010 doing this kind of fiendish activity. You see the Swedes were in on murdering 6 million of his people the Jews in the years of the Holocaust. Then Peres spent the next 60 years telling the Swedish Government “Forget about all of that. That is past. Let us be friends as if nothing has happened”
There is the strange whiff of treason here in the thought which must have been in the head of Peres “Really we understand your (Swedish) collaboration with the Nazis because anyway we the Jews had it coming”
This goes on right across the board. Why would any Jewish Israeli business do commercial business with a country like Britain that seeks to destroy Israel by means of the “Palestine” state? They are not stupid. They know that would be the result. How would they like a Jihadist state in Kent next door to London?
The second thing is how Jewish big wigs in America attacked without mercy the Serbs and supported the NATO bombing of the Serbs, as Clinton reached a deal with Izetbegovic (for sure and inhis own writing an extreme Jihadist) to carry out a massacre for false flag purposes. That was Srebrenica.
In all of that activity in Bosnia and Kosovo a man called Michael Ignatieff was central in mobilizing support for the Clinton war on the Serbs on the false thesis that the Serbs were carrying out a Holocaust on the Muslims. But it was Yugoslavia that was being invaded by Jihadists and the first beheadings that I saw in this modern era were done on young Serb small farming lads in the woods of Bosnia – supported and more (we can say actually instigated) by Clinton and a foretaste of the Islamic State.
I said “used” the Holocaust. Sadly there were Jews connected to the Holocaust Museum too ready to work with Ignatieff in this evil propaganda against the Serbs.
Ignatieff is an academic today but he certainly finds the time to set up Assad in the same way that he did to the Serbs. In January of this year he was splashing across the Media photos that a “dissenter” had taken out of Syria. These photos were something along the lines of the Srebrenica Hoax propaganda of the Media.
The reason that I mention this today is that last night I heard it reported that Ignatieff had joined forces with an American Holocaust Museum and that this was on the wires yesterday. I have googled under “back news ignatieff holocaust assad” but can find nothing this morning.
This does not deflect from the truth which is that Ignatieff and others used widely the Holocaust against the Serbs, and used the Holocaust to carry out the NATO Clinton war against the Serbs. This has another lesson in relation to the Sherman article I mention above which is that the ruling classes in today’s world will stop at nothing to carry out their aims.
As regards the mention that Martin Sherman makes in his article on the British vote in Parliament to recognize a “Palestine” state I plan to write an article on this to complement the article I did yesterday on the Swedish recognition of “Palestine”. As I read around this one thing struck me and sticks so strongly in my mind. Just about a year after the Holocaust was ended by the defeat of the Allies (1945) the British Government was hanging Jews in Palestine! I prisons that the British had set up in Palestine to hang Jews ONE year after the Holocaust. Please do not tell us that this recent British Parliament vote is without context or meaning.
What to do? As always I come back to the governments of Israel and the present one is led by Netanyahu. The leader gives form to his government. We are now being backed up by many who then were silent. Netanyahu had to use the situation to totally destroy Hamas. That meant the arrest of the Hamas leadership. The thesis put about by Netanyahu and his people (literally cronies) that Hamas was needed to keep the Arabs fighting with each other was treasonous.
But Netanyahu still remains in power. That is the weakness of I may be so bold of the Martin Sherman article.
It centres all of the time on the question “What to DO next?”
I had experience of the site called Israpundit.org. Those people there would talk and talk and talk. Is that a feature of Jewish politics? If it is it is decidedly treasonous.
There must be found a way to create a new leadership and that is the issue I pose.
Feix Quigley writing from Spain, but native of Ireland
FOLLOWS THIS HISTORICAL ARTICLE BY MARTIN SHERMAN
Into the fray: The two-stage ‘solution’
The entire issue of Palestinian statehood, and the Palestinian narrative on which it is based, are nothing but a giant hoax so transparent it is inconceivable that anyone even feigns credence to it.
‘With the two-state solution… Israel will collapse, because if they get out of Jerusalem, what will become of all the talk about the Promised Land and the chosen people? What will become of all the sacrifices they made – just to be told to leave? They consider Jerusalem to have a spiritual status. The Jews consider Judea and Samaria to be their historic dream. If the Jews leave those places, the Zionist idea will begin to collapse…. Then we will move forward.”
– Abbas Zaki, senior PLO official. (ANB TV, Lebanon, May 7, 2009)
Two recent events have once again propelled Palestinian statehood into the forefront of media spotlight, after several months of it being overshadowed by other events like developments in Ukraine, the war in Gaza and the televised barbarity of Islamic State.
One was the statement by Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (subsequently somewhat equivocally revised) that his country would recognize a Palestinian state. The other was the British Parliament’s (nonbinding, but in the eyes of some, historic) vote on recognition of statehood for the Palestinians.
In light of these incidents, I was invited to appear on i24news news and participate in a discussion with a Palestinian interlocutor on the prospects for, and the prudence of, establishing a Palestinian state.
Much of what follows reflects the things I said during that 20-minute debate – and the things I didn’t, but would have, had time permitted.
I began by asserting that it should be obvious to anyone with an iota of intellectual integrity that establishing a Palestinian state, in any conceivable configuration, is incompatible with the security and survival of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
It is incomprehensible for anyone who holds this view of Israel’s role in the world not to strive to have the issue of Palestinian statehood removed from the international discourse.
After all, the recent round of fighting in Gaza should have brought home dramatically the perils involved in a Palestinian entity with a short 50-km. border, abutting the sparsely populated, mainly rural South.
Thus, little imagination is required to grasp the horrific implications for Israel entailed in the establishment of yet another Palestinian entity in Judea-Samaria (a.k.a.
“West Bank”), but now with a 500-km. border, abutting the heavily populated urban center of the country – with Ben-Gurion, Israel’s only international airport, easily within mortar range.
Just what the significance of this latter element is should be vividly underscored by two disturbing features of the last clash in Gaza. First, Ben-Gurion was closed down by the landing of a single stray rocket in its approximate vicinity. Second, the Iron Dome defense system, highly effective against Kassam and Grad rockets, was markedly less so against mortar fire.
Little imagination is required to envision the disastrously disruptive consequences for Israel’s international air contacts were its only gateway subjected to incessant – even intermittent – short-range mortar barrages from nearby locations, far more accurate than any occasional rocket launched from the remote Gaza Strip.
Much the same could be said for the country’s land transport system – with the Trans-Israel Highway (Route 6) running for much of its length immediately adjacent to, and well within rifle range from, any prospective frontier.
Moreover, the impact of this chilling prospect is magnified by the fact that, unlike Gaza, much of the territory earmarked for a future Palestinian state comprises the limestone highlands which dominate Israel’s urbanized Coastal Plain. In it lie virtually all of Israel’s major airfields (civilian and military); main seaports and naval bases; vital infrastructure installations/systems (power generation and transmission, water, communications and transportation systems); centers of civilian government and military command; and 80 percent of the civilian population and commercial activity.
All of these could be disrupted at will, at minimal cost, by any hostile forces, whether regular or renegade, deployed on the western slopes of these highlands.
Clearly, recurrent disruption of their functioning – or even a tangible threat thereof – would make the maintenance of socioeconomic routine untenable.
‘Not since Dr. Goebbels…’
Amplifying the dire danger that a Palestinian state would pose for Israel is the undisguised intention of the Palestinians, of all political persuasions, to exploit such a state as a platform for further assaults on the Jewish state, until “Palestine,” from the River to the Sea, is totally free of the “Zionist invader.”
To convey the manifest mendacity of the Palestinian position, I drew on a quotation from an opinion column titled “Palestinian Lies” that appeared in Haaretz, towards the end of the near-hegemonic era of the Labor Party, then headed by Yitzhak Rabin: “Of all Palestinian lies there is no lie greater or more crushing than that which calls for the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in the West Bank… Not since the time of Dr. Goebbels has there been a case in which continual repetition of a lie has borne such great fruits…”
There was a tangible sense of surprise in the i24news studio when I revealed that these were not the words of some rightwing religious radical, but of Prof. Amnon Rubinstein, who was elected to the Knesset soon after penning the cited article, served for a decade as an MK for the far-left dovish Meretz party, and held the post of minister of education.
One narrative; five myths
I took the firm position that Rubinstein’s assessment of the veracity of Palestinian claims is essentially accurate, and that the Palestinian narrative is nothing but a giant hoax, a gigantic political sleight-of-hand, comprising five transparent myths: Myth of Palestinian Peoplehood; Myth of Palestinian Nationhood; Myth of Palestinian Homeland; Myth of Palestinian Statelessness; and Myth of Palestinian Refugees.
I have discussed these myths in some detail in previous columns. All are easily refutable, indeed freely admitted, falsehoods, intended to blur the fact that the two-state prescription is a two-stage blueprint for the annihilation of Israel.
When my Palestinian interlocutor in the debate charged that my position merely reflected my own, uninformed prejudices, I replied that quite the opposite is true.
My contentions can all be conclusively corroborated by deeds, declarations and documents of the Palestinians.
I began by citing former Arab MK Azmi Bishara, described as a “Palestinian intellectual,” and forced to flee Israel to avoid investigation of alleged acts of treason during the 2006 Second Lebanon War.
One could hardly find a more resounding renunciation of Palestinian nationhood than that provided by Bishara when, in a 1994 Channel 2 program, he astounded his Israeli co-participants with the following assertion: “I don’t think there is a Palestinian nation at all. I think there is an Arab nation. I always thought so… I think it’s a colonialist invention – a Palestinian nation. When were there any Palestinians? Where did it come from?” Indeed, when? Indeed, where? A swift tour d’horizon of decades of what prominent Palestinians have done, said and written will convincingly confirm the flagrant falsehood of the Palestinian narrative and the sinister subterfuge on which their demand for statehood is founded.
Five myths (cont.)
For example, senior Palestinian leaders have admitted – openly, consistently and continually – that Palestinians are not, and never have been, a distinct people identifiably different from others in the Arab world (Myth of Peoplehood).
But not only do the Palestinians admit that they are not a discrete socio-ethnic entity – i.e. a people – they concede that as a political unit – i.e. a nation – their demands and aspirations are neither genuine nor permanent (Myth of Nationhood) and are merely a contrivance to undermine Jewish nationhood.
The Palestinians explicitly eschewed any sovereign claims to the “West Bank” (and Gaza), only incorporating them in their territorial claims after these territories came under Israeli control (Myth of Homeland), clearly vindicating the view that the concept of Palestinian “national identity” is a fabricated construct, conjured up to further the Arab quest to repudiate Jewish national claims.
Moreover, the Palestinians are “stateless” not as a result of callous Israeli malfeasance, but of deliberate Arab malevolence (Myth of Statelessness). It is the Arabs who either stripped them of citizenship they already had (as King Hussein did in 1988), or precluded them from acquiring citizenship they desire (as per the Arab League directive).
Finally, regarding the issue of refugees, it is becoming increasingly difficult to conceal the fact that the status of Palestinian “refugees” is totally different from that of all other refugees on the face of the globe (Myth of Refugees). Were the same criterion that applies to all other cases, applied to the Palestinians, the number of refugees would plunge dramatically – from around 5 million claimed today, to fewer than 50,000.
The malice behind the myths
Arguably the most dramatically revealing and comprehensive declaration as to the malicious mendacity that underlies Palestinian claims to statehood was provided by the late Zuheir Mohsin, a senior member of the PLO Executive, in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw.
It is a declaration frequently cited by opponents of Palestinian statehood, yet seldom repudiated by its proponents. I, too, have referred to several portions of it in the past, but in the present international context, I feel there is great value in presenting it in its entirety.
In the interview headlined: “We are only Palestinians for political reasons,” Moshin stated frankly: “There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.
We are all part of ONE people, the Arab nation… We are ONE people. Only for political reasons we carefully underwrite our Palestinian identity. Because it is of national interest for the Arabs to advocate the existence of Palestinians to balance Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.
“A separate Palestinian entity needs to fight for the national interest in the then remaining occupied territories. The Jordanian government cannot speak for Palestinians in Israel, Lebanon or Syria. Jordan is a state with specific borders. It cannot lay claim on – for instance – Haifa or Jaffa, while I AM entitled to Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Beersheba… The Palestinian state would be entitled to represent all Palestinians in the Arab world and elsewhere. Once we have accomplished all of our rights in all of Palestine, we must not postpone the unification of Jordan and Palestine for one second,” Moshin said.
Two stages, not two states
It is hard to conceive of a more brazen confession that the true goal of the twostate principle is the two-stage destruction of Israel.
It would be a perilous error to dismiss this as unrepresentative of mainstream Palestinian opinion today.
Nowhere is it more clearly articulated than in the Palestinian National Covenant, still posted on the official “State of Palestine” site hosted by the UN. It proclaims: “Article 19: The partition of Palestine in 1947, and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time…
“Article 20: The Balfour Declaration, the Palestine Mandate, and everything that has been based on them, are deemed null and void. Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history…”
Article 12 lays out the temporary nature of Palestinian identity in the staged strategy for the “liberation” of “Palestine” defined as “an indivisible territorial unit, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate.”
It states: “The Palestinian people are a part of the Arab Nation… [and] believe in Arab unity… however, they must, at the present stage of their struggle, safeguard their Palestinian identity…”
The present stage? See what I mean by two stages? Stage one: Create Palestine.
Stage two: Eliminate Israel – precisely as per Abbas Zaki in the introductory excerpt.
The real tragedy
All of this is – or at least, should be –painfully obvious. Yet, Israel has failed – even refused – to make this case to the world.
This is inexcusable, incomprehensible and unacceptable.
For as Ronald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, correctly underscored in bemoaning the Swedish initiative, (Jerusalem Post, October 14), doing so is a “strategic imperative” for the nation.
It is one that Israel has failed dismally to address. That is, perhaps, the greatest tragedy of all.
Martin Sherman (www.martinsherman.net) is the founder and executive director of the Israel Institute for Strategic Studies (www.strategic- israel.org).
Sweden has recently voted to recognise the Nazi inspired and created (by the Nazi criminal Hajj Amin el Husseini) “Palestine” of Hamas/Fatah.
Sweden has a history of collaborating with the Hitler Nazis. They sold and kept on selling steel to the Nazis. Thus the steel that made up the barbed wire of the concentration camps is Swedish Steel. The Jews who threw themselves against the barbed wire which was electified were throwing themselves against Swedish Steel. The present Prime Minister (3 October 2014) is Stefan Lotven. With such a history of collaborating with the Nazis in the Holocaust of the Jews (as an Irish person) I ask why do the Swedes today not keep their Nazis lips sealed.
I am not introducing here psychological reasons. Many do say that these European countries either collaborated with the Nazis as did the Swedes or at the very least (the very best that can be said of them) stood by and never uttered a cheep as half of the Jewish people were murdered by the Nazis in their continent of Europe because that embarrases them and they are finding a way to lessen their guilt by saying “Look at those nasty Israelis. That makes us right in having collaborating with the Nazis against the Jews”.
As an Irish person I do not buy this. In fact I do not care. I only repeat what they did. I do know that when the monster Adolf Hitler died in 1945 the Irish leader DeValera signed a note of condolence.
Swedish immigration policy during the 1930s was, which the responsible politicians admitted, very restrictive against admitting Jewish refugees trying to escape the Nazi terror and mass murder into Sweden, before the deportations of Norwegian Jews began in 1942. Jewish refugees were systematically discriminated against by the immigration authorities compared to other refugees. At the end of the war and in the post-Holocaust debate Swedish politicians and officials tried excusing their previous restrictive policy toward Jewish immigration by using the Jewish minority in the country as a scape-goat, claiming that the Stockholm Jewish Community or “certain Jewish circles” had been even more restrictive than the Swedish state.
Following on (same source)
In October 2010, The Forward reported on the current state of Jews and the level of antisemitism in Sweden. Henrik Bachner, a writer and professor of history at the University of Lund, claimed that members of the Swedish Riksdag have attended anti-Israel rallies where the Israeli flag was burned while the flags of Hamas and Hezbollah were waved, and the rhetoric was often antisemitic—not just anti-Israel. Charles Small, former director of the Yale University Initiative for the Study of Anti-Semitism, stated that “Sweden is a microcosm of contemporary anti-Semitism. It’s a form of acquiescence to radical Islam, which is diametrically opposed to everything Sweden stands for.” Per Gudmundson, chief editorial writer for Svenska Dagbladet and well known for his pro-Israeli stance for decades, has sharply criticised politicians who he claims offer “weak excuses” for Muslims accused of antisemitic crimes. “Politicians say these kids are poor and oppressed, and we have made them hate. They are, in effect, saying that the behaviour of these kids is in some way our fault.” Much of the anti-semitism has been attributed to the growing Muslim immigrant population.
The new period of the world wide Jihad where Muslim refugees take over whole áreas of these countries has had immediate effect (same source)
In 2010, the international media reported on increasing levels of anti-Semitic hate-crime in Malmö, the country’s third-largest city. The reports cited desecrations, the burning of a chapel and worshippers being taunted with ‘Hitler’ chants. In 2009 the Malmö police received reports of 79 anti-Semitic incidents, double the number of the previous year (2008). For example, on January 13, 2009 Molotov cocktails were thrown inside and outside the funeral chapel at the old Jewish cemetery in the city of Malmö, south Sweden, as what seems as an anti-Semitic act. It was the third time the chapel has been attacked in the few weeks before this incident. On September 28, 2012, an explosion occurred at Malmö Jewish community building, again as what seems to be an anti-Semitic act. Fredrik Sieradzki, spokesman for the Malmö Jewish community, estimated that the already small Jewish population is shrinking by 5% a year. “Malmö is a place to move away from,” he said, citing anti-Semitism as the primary reason.
In an article published in The Forward in October 2010, Judith Popinski, an 86-year-old Holocaust survivor, stated that she is no longer invited to schools that have a large Muslim presence to tell her story of surviving the Holocaust. Popinski, who found refuge in Malmö in 1945, stated that, until recently, she told her story in Malmö schools as part of their Holocaust studies program, but that now, many schools no longer ask Holocaust survivors to tell their stories, because Muslim students treat them with such disrespect, either ignoring the speakers or walking out of the class. She further stated that “Malmö reminds me of the anti-Semitism I felt as a child in Poland before the war. … I am not safe as a Jew in Sweden anymore.”
So building on the Antisemitism of the Nazi Holocaust period where the Swedish elites joined the Nazis and helped to carry out the Holocaust they are now joining with the new Nazis of the Jihad today and are moving relentlessly to the isolation of Israel in the world, which of course means the isolation of the Jews of the world, because the key thing in all of this verbiage from the likes of George galloway and David Icke) 99.9 per cent repeating are supportive of Israel as the Jewish state.
This is not so difficult to understand. The history teaches us the reality. These European and American RULING CLASSES had a big role in the Holocaust ALONG WITH the German Nazis. This Antisemitism is carried on into the present.
These ruling classes have no real argument with the Nazis of Islam today and have welcomed this Nazi ideology into their coutries, They have envouraged widespread Muslim immigration. In Britain from Heath on and especially Tony Blair and the Labour Party have worshipped this Nazi ideology.
This ideology takes particularly rotting forms when people like George Galloway says that no Israeli can enter into Bradford where he is MP. The same sort of rotting ideology comes Fromm David Icke.
But note that Galloway and Icke never refer to the real history as we have done in this article. That is a clue to the way forward for http://www.4international.me
NOTE ON PICTURE AT TOP OF ARTICLE
It is from an article which states:
Seven out of ten teachers failed a Holocaust history test set by the agency.
The Living History Forum is a Swedish government agency which has been commissioned with the task of promoting issues relating to tolerance, democracy and human rights – with the Holocaust as its point of reference.
5,081 teachers took part in the Living History Forum’s Holocaust questionnaire, but only two teachers answered all the questions correctly.
Only every 20th teacher was aware, for example, that between 81 and 100 percent of all European Jewish children alive during the Nazi regime were killed in the Holocaust.
According to Johan Perwe, the Living History Forum’s press secretary, the details surrounding the Holocaust are very important.
He told The Local that while detailed historical knowledge cannot be expected of the general Swedish public, teachers need this additional knowledge in order to educate their students adequately.
“Most Swedish people know about the Holocaust and have an emotional empathy toward the victims. However, if you do not know the whole picture, which is made up of many factual details, then you cannot understand what motivated the criminals behind it.”
UK Parliament votes 274-12 in favor of recognizing “the state of Palestine”
ROBERT SPENCER STATES ON THE FASCIST VOTE IN BRITAIN FOR “PALESTINE”
A “Palestinian” state would not make for a peaceful resolution of the jihad against Israel. It would simply become a new jihad base for newly virulent attacks against a weakened Israel. Do the British MPs know this? Probably not. Would they care if they did? Probably not.
How many times does this have to be done before the political elites get a clue? Or are they so thoroughly bought and paid for that that will never happen? The Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 was supposed to bring peace. Instead, I and just a few others warned that Gaza would just become a new jihad terror base. And we were right. So also, a “Palestinian” state would become yet another jihad terror base for attacks against a reduced, truncated Israel. The various “Palestinian” factions have never recognized Israel or retreated even one step from their repeated vows to destroy it utterly. Do these clowns even know what “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” means?
As long as they’re voting for jihad, how long will it be before the UK Parliament goes whole hog, as it were, and votes 274-12 to adopt Sharia as the sole law of the land? It would “promote community cohesion,” eh wot?
SPENCER IN MY VIEW IS 100 PER CENT CORRECT IN THE ABOVE. PRINT IT OUT AND FRAME IT SO THAT YOU COME BACK TO READ IT!
“British Parliament votes in favor of Palestinian statehood recognition,” by Jerry Lewis, Reuters, October 13, 2014:
Britain’s House of Commons voted in favor of recognizing a Palestinian state late Monday in a move that will not alter the government’s stance on the issue, but that carries symbolic value for Palestinians in their pursuit of statehood.
Lawmakers in Britain’s lower house of parliament voted by 274 to 12 to pass a non-binding motion stating: “That this House believes that the Government should recognize the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution.”
Britain does not classify “Palestine” as a state, but says it could do so at any time if it believed it would help peace efforts between the Palestinians and Israel. Government ministers were told to abstain and the non-binding vote will not force Britain to recognise a Palestinian state.
Nearly 50 MPs were in the chamber to hear pro-Palestinian Labor Backbencher Grahame Morris open the four hour debate which he said was a chance for the UK to atone for its historic mistakes – a clear reference to the Balfour Declaration.
He and party colleagues knew in advance that with the unprecedented backing of the Labor party – as traditionally the political parties do not tell MPs which way to vote in what is supposed to be backbench business – his motion calling for the British Government to recognise a Palestinian State would be passed, probably by a substantial majority.
Several senior pro-Israel Labor party MPs including a number of members of the shadow cabinet – angered by the decision of party leader Ed Miliband and Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander to order Labor backbenchers to back the Morris motion by issuing a ‘three line whip’ – were understood to be ready to defy the instruction and abstain on the vote which was due at 10 p.m. UK time, midnight in Israel.
Former Labor Foreign Secretary Jack Straw successfully moved a manuscript amendment which stated that recognition of a state should be agreed as a ‘contribution’ towards a two state solution. He said if Israel had its way and recognition should be delayed until an agreement is reached between Israel and the Palestinians, that – in effect – would amount to giving Israel a veto over Palestinian statehood.
The Palestinians, he reminded the Commons had no say or veto over the establishment of the State of Israel.
A counter argument was put forward by another former Foreign Secretary the Conservative Party’s Malcolm Rifkind who told MPs that it was not possible to recognize a state which has no boundaries, no army, nor a government. The Palestinians he said, currently have two administrations and simply did not qualify for ‘recognition’.
Also he noted wryly, Britain did not recognize the State of Israel until 1950 when its borders and government and been well established….
