From the mouths of the true terrorists

The Holocaust as a profitable investment
Even more explicit was the Palestinian writer Ahsan al-Agha during a "cultural programme" broadcast two weeks ago on PA television. Al-Agha's interviewer outlined the factual basis for the conversation: "It is well-known that every year the Jews exaggerate what the Nazis did to them. They claim there were 6 million killed, but precise scientific research establishes that there were no more than 400,000."

Al-Agha, a teacher in Gaza, then replied: "I think we are talking about an investment. They [the Jews] have profited materially, spiritually, politically and economically from the talk about the Nazi killings. This investment is favourable to them and they view it as a profitable activity so they inflate the number of victims all the time. In another ten years, I do not know what number they will reach. Last year, for the first time, a statistic appeared according to which 1.5 million children were killed by the Nazis. This number was not previously known ... If this number was indeed correct, then someone would certainly have remembered it ... In my opinion, it is an investment, and as you know, when it comes to economics and investments, the Jews have been very experienced ever since the days of the Merchant of Venice."

The head of the Palestinian Broadcasting Authority is Nabil Amar, a former PLO ambassador in Moscow. Amar serves as an adviser to Yasser Arafat and is a member of the Higher Committee in the talks with Israel. He is also the publisher and chief editor of Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda, whose employees receive their salaries directly from the PA budget. It is therefore not surprising that in tandem with the official radio and television, Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda conveys the line dictated from above. And the line is unmistakable.

For example: three days before the suicide bombing on the Jerusalem pedestrian mall, the newspaper published two instructive articles. The first was an interview with an "Islamic author" by the name of Safi Naz Kassam who offered a number of diagnoses regarding Judaism and Zionism: "There is no people or land named Israel," she said. "Israel is our patriarch Yaaqoub [Jacob], peace be upon him, and the children of Israel are the sons of Yaaqoub ... We are the children of Israel ...These people are the children of the Zionist entity, they are the children of the colonialist entity, they are nothing more than thieves. They came and took land which does not belong to them. Therefore, the normalisation of relations with them is impossible ... even if Palestine remains occupied for hundreds of years."

With regard to Zionism, she states: "These Zionists are not fit to establish a nation or to have their own language or even their own religion. They are nothing more than a hodgepodge."

The same issue surveys "research" by Ahmed al-Awadeh, which claims that the Jews live by the Talmud and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. The conflict between Muslim and Jew is an eternal conflict, similar to the conflict between mankind (Muslims), and Satan (the Jews), and how unfortunate the Palestinians are that they have to serve as the Muslims' avant garde in the eternal battle of the Muslims and all the nations against the "nation of Jews".

...and you're point is:

i should despise/be wary of Jews *for the most part*? what?

this reminds me of one time when i was young and my mother had some 'black-Muslim' guy over the house. he was an african-american person who considered himself a practioner of orthodox islam. well, we were sitting on the floor and he just says to me as if it is a well guarded secret "Jewish fathers sleep with their children."

i'm lucky to be a person that has never really had the "sense" to take the things that people say seriously. i've learned that, for the most part, people 'tend' to be filled with shit. his comments didn't make me start hating Jews--hell, i lived in a community with a good number of people who claimed the Jewish faith and i had a lot of Jewish friends growing up and i've eating lox (it doesn't necessarily have to be 'greasy', right?).

[Seinfeld mode on]all this Jewish bashing, what's up with that? [/sm off]

atomic frog

I have seen this argument on Israeli web sites and in postings lately...palestine the country is a myth therefore palestinians are also a myth. This came about when the Romans were so busy exterminating the jews, that they "mislabled" the area in dispute.
It was israel. it still is israel. These so called palestinians have to go.

I responded sarcasticly, I am so glad you told me that. All this time I thought you were stealing their land because they lacked the means to defend it, and had a stranglehold on the Media. Wow they have been living in the wrong place for 2,000 years, and using an alias too. Those Romans must have really beenl busy.

Were the Romans exterminating the jews because jew wasn't a "real" name and Judea wasn't a "real" place because the Romans said so? They didn't destroy the other people who's decendants are still there. What did you do?

Was it because some of those mislabeled people had guts? Didn't 800 or so commit suicide together rather than go camping? they weren't terrorists were they? The Romans thought them unworthy of civilization and set out to wipe them out.
What had they done?. If they had strap on bombs, they would have been the worlds first suicide bombers, you think?

Nazi's killed a lot of people for their land. They called jews names and stole their riches.
I thought it was because they had money and germany (a real name) was broke. Then the nazi's told them to go back to where they came from. They didn't go far enough fast enough and had to go camping.

Those nazis must have been real busy killing and enslaving all those "subhuman" types. It took years to find out that these jews aren't a real group because they live all over, are mislabled , and the place they say their from isn't a real place because it too is mislabled or relabled.

Wow. all this time I thought the nazi's knew these mislabled people didn't like camping and were fond of your tribal name. ashkenazi. Ironic........

Well you ashkenazi's should have no trouble then. Comparing weapons, training, communications, technology, medical care, nutrition, media control, propaganda, and allies; It will be like beating a baby with a baseball bat.

And all this time I thought you were afraid of them because they didn't like camping and the men had balls.

For a people who have been picked on for a long time, you're not very nice. I used to like you. You lied to me. You are bullies.
I don't know any Israeli natives. It seems like you're going to make sure noone does. I don't like you any more. You have most of the world feeling sorry for you. All the while, you've been the thugs portrayed in your own propaganda. I hope you come to a very sticky end.
I feel sorry for the nice Jewish people. If anyone wants to sign a war crimes petition against sharon it is here  http://www.petitiononline.com/warcrime/petition.html

An IDF investigation committee, headed by Major General Yitzhak Harel, absolved the IDF this week of any responsibility for the death of innocents in the last three incidents, in which altogether 13 Palestinians were killed, including six children and a mother. The incident in Bani Naim was also included in the investigation. The central conclusion of the committee is that "that there were no defects in the procedures for opening fire."

In fact, the IDF doesn't need additional criteria. As Operation Defensive Shield progresses and completes its "pinpoint" missions by assassinating the political, operational and organizational leadership of the Palestinian struggle, the IDF is increasingly positioned in a frontal war against civilians. "The absence of a security record doesn't interest us," said the officer. "Too many terrorists today have no security history."

Nine-year-old Abdel Salam Sumerin was killed yesterday when Israel Defense Forces troops used live fire to disperse a crowd of school children challenging the army's attempt to impose a curfew on the El Amari refugee camp, in El Bireh.
