the kidnapping phenomenon of the “Palestinians”
the same theme of children being kidnapped
This is an article by a Palestinian Arab which is presently being aired. I think he is a business man. He is very fair towards the Jews and Israel and he falls right into one of our perspectives, that of the perspectives for the Middle East of http://www.4international.me, a perspective that is struggling to make itself known to even a few. We believe that Jews must live alone to be protected from Antisemitism…a simple enough concept but ont he elft we are alone in this This Palestinian Arab man will be a welcome guest and that concept I hope he would agree with…at any rate it would be a test. So it fits with our basic concept. Our concept of “living alone” is rooted in our fear and understanding of Antisemitism
(follows interview with a Palestinian Arab and finishes with our thoughts)
The three Israeli teenagers abducted June 12: Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrach.
Responses such as these should help the world — which has been trying to force a peace agreement with the PA down Israel’s throat — wake up to the reality that the PA is a terrorist organization that has been inciting acts of violence and radicalism, and should be treated as such. Its leaders should be recognized as terrorists who deserve jail rather than a red carpet treatment in Western capitals.
While some argue that freedom of speech is sacred, it seems the only freedom of speech the PA allows is the one that incites terrorism.
The first thing the world should remember is that the PA is now officially united with Hamas, a terrorist organization that pledges to destroy a sovereign nation, Israel, and establish a Muslim caliphate. Financing the PA now is therefore financing terrorism.
Yet, despite uniting with Hamas, the PA will still apparently be receiving generous financing from the U.S., Canada and Europe.
The UK, with the best of intentions, offers an average of $135 million a year to the PA for development; nonetheless, the Guardian newspaper reported that the money, always fungible, was instead being used by the PA to finance terrorist imprisoned in Israeli jails — thus inadvertently financing more terrorism.
In addition, it is no secret that the PA officials have been stealing hundreds of millions of dollars of the aid money intended to improve the livelihoods of my people, the Palestinians, with no sign that Western aid to the PA ever filters down to the Palestinian public.
Instead of financing the PA leaders’ lavish lifestyles, the world might finally start questioning the PA’s institutionalized incitement of terror and hatred to my people which they relay daily through media, education and the religious institutions.
Ever since the PA came into existence, it has been keen to mass-produce and institutionalize the hatred of Jews and also the West. With their government-controlled TV shows that teach children how to kill Jews, and textbooks that preach hatred for Israel, the PA and Hamas are directly and fully responsible for each and every terror act committed by Palestinians, including the kidnapping of the three teenagers.
Is this what the West is so breathless to support?
Ironically, the PA is claiming no responsibility for the kidnappings, however you cannot be running TV, newspapers and social media encouraging terror and the murdering of Jews and then claim that you are innocent when acts of terror happen.
Another reason for kidnapping the three teenagers, of course, is also the regular prisoner-release agreements forced on Israel. Gilad Shalit was kidnapped and held for five years then released in a prisoner exchange agreement for more than 1,000 terrorist prisoners who were let out of jail. Such deals have been openly encouraged and blessed by the PA leader. In other words, the PA encourages the kidnappings of Israelis to exchange them with terror prisoners.
The world should therefore understand Israel’s position when it recently called off releasing yet more terror prisoners in a deal promoted by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. These releases just encourage the kidnapping of more Israelis.
As a Palestinian, I do not wish for any of my people to be in jail; nonetheless, I cannot sympathize with those who kill children and innocent civilians. I also know that releasing those prisoners in “swaps” sets a bad example, and even encourages more of my people to commit acts of terror: they see they can be released in a few years in a prisoner exchange brokered by the West.
Would the U.S. or Europe agree to give its cities and parts of its soil to a terrorist organization to establish a country the way Secretary Kerry has been pushing Israel to give up most of the West Bank and return to pre-1967 borders?
Also, if the US or any European country were facing terror attacks from any neighboring country, wouldn’t it seek to build a barrier to protect itself from that country? The U.S. already has a fortified wall along parts of its border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration — an offense not by any means close to any of the terrorist acts that have claimed the lives of thousands of Israeli civilians over the years. Therefore, can the world keep blaming Israel for having a security barrier?
Can we Palestinians blame Israel when the barrier never existed before Hamas and the PLO started launching terror attacks on Israel on a daily basis? Yes, the wall looks sad and ugly and depressing, but if Israel’s neighbors proclaim every day that their sole desire is to displace Israel, what else — apart from surrender — can Israel do?
We Palestinians know that Israel welcomed us with open arms before the PA came and brought terror-preaching with it. And yes, there have always been constant acts of Palestinian terrorism. But PA terror has became (sic) a major industry — in which terrorists are pampered, protected, financed, employed, and glorified by the PA — with streets, soccer stadiums and summer camps named after them. And Europe breathlessly joins in.
Israeli measures towards securing the safety of its citizens as well as that of the Palestinians, have been demonized by the world and the so-called Palestinian sympathizers, who choose to ignore the fact that Palestinians’ lives have become harder because of the terrorists and not because of Israel. A Palestinian businessman, for instance, who frequently passes illegally into Israel to buy his products, said: “Most people are mad at those who kidnapped the kids…[because] When they commit such acts, we rejoice, celebrate for Israel’s suffering, then sit down and worry if we will be allowed into Israel for work and medical treatment. To me, such a kidnapping only destroys the livelihood of my four children. This has to stop, for our own sake.”
The Palestinian Authority is a terrorist organization, and its leaders are terrorists who deserve international arrest warrants rather than the red-carpet treatment in Western capitals. The PA has been an inciter of terror; it jeopardizes the safety and livelihoods of Israelis and Palestinians alike.
This tragedy should remind the world that the PA — and organizations like it — is a threat to all of us and should not be rewarded with still more funds for terrorist behaviour. For the sake of both Israel and the Palestinians, it is not Israel but the PA that should be boycotted, excluded and even dissolved.
SOME THOUGHTS FROMA BROAD
Remember here that the BBC calls the ISIL Militants. The BBC does this not once but every single time.
The BBC thus creates an image in the mind of the listener. The image is that the ISIL is not a group of terrorists but a group of militants. They have a militancy for a historical reason which is that they are oppressed. That is the (could we call it subliminal – it is more than subliminal it is very open propaganda) propaganda message poured out day after day by the BBC. The BBC is awash with money and it is paid for by the population. The BBC was talking this very morning on a BBC World Programme of planning to reach half a billion people. A neat trick. The BBC is being paid by the people in order to enslave the minds of those very people. I talk here in an overall and general sense (there IS some good stuff on the BBC)
If the BBC thus creates a subliminal message that ISIL is so and so, then what does the BBC do towards Fatah, Hamas and the “Palestinians”?
In the various studios of the BBC the “Palestinians” can do no wrong. The “Palestinians” for the BBC are the ultimate “victims” of history.
In order to create that picture the BBC has lied about history. The BBC in order to carry off that “The Palestinians are victims” concept has lied about everything (not almost everything but everything) since the beginnings of Zionism.
I mean the whole thing! The whole of the history! Insidious lie after insidious lie!
It is just dishonest treatment of history by the BBC. Very often it is leaving out of certain aspects or factual narrative. I would say that the BBC are absolute “masters” of this technique.
In that latter regard let me tell of one trick or aspect which really gets my rag out!
I actually follow this trick as it is used by two reporters whom I follow in a more or less desultory manner, one doing a BBC weekend morning programme the other is a non BBC programme. The trick is this: It is the selecting of a piece of propaganda by SOMEBODY ELSE, the reporter plays the piece of propaganda, but does not comment. This is a method, a very invidious method, a method of distortion.
Of course there are millions of communists and revolutionists behind www.4international.me and they are just waiting for the word. So all of those conspiracists who think of communism as the great danger to everything will be very worried to hear that we on 4international have just bought a new inkjet printer. It costs about 60 euros and we thought about it. The cost has not broken me financially but I did think what it could be used for and it is not an offset printer churning out millions of copies per hour. (allow for my twisted sense of humour here)
But since that is irony above the real thing that we lack is organization. At this stage we do not want to do much more than tell the truth, first to ourselves, and then to a few more people, but most of all and enduringly to tell the truth to ourselves, and that is hard enough. Not hard in the sense of it being a chore, just difficult.
To conclude…On the above remarkable document. He is a Palestinian Arab. He sees the falseness. He articulates it well. But in the end he is using the Jews of Israel also and there are Jews also who in business use Palestinian Arab cheap labour for profit.
From that latter concept there has to grow up a layer of Israeli Jews who are using the situation for their own gains. But the truth of the matter and of the situation, a situation both historical and contemporary (what happens day in day out with rockets from Gaza onto Sderot last night), it is that Arab Antisemitism which runs right through the whole situation and land is that Jews and Arabs cannot live together. There MUST be separation for the safety of Jews. To keep your feet on the ground and think and act realistically. Is that the basic answer for the Jews of Israel? I think it is a big part of it.
