The EU- and UN-financed war against Israel continues

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

A short while ago Palestinian terrorists from the Fatah government in Ramallah detonated a massive bomb in central Jerusalem. Thus far, reports indicate 1 death and 25 casualties, of which 3 critical.

This latest Palestinian atrocity comes the same day as the Palestinians’ second government, the one run by Hamas in Gaza, fired a number of rockets at civilian Jews in the Israeli city of Beersheba.

Which in turn comes a couple of days after the Palestinians’ second government in Gaza fired a number of rockets at civilian Jews in the Israeli city of Ashkelon.

This in turn comes one day after the Palestinians’ second government in Gaza fired 50 mortar shells  at civilian Jews in villages and towns in southern Israel.

Which in turn comes just a few days after Palestinian terrorists from the Palestinians’ other government, the Fatah one based in Ramallah, slaughtered a Jewish Israeli family including their infant child in the village of Itamar.

All this violence and barbarism is only possible thanks to no-strings-attached, generous financial endowments to the Palestinians’ two governments by the EU and the UN. Massive financial grants made without even minimal requirements in the form of a cessation of state-financed hatred in schools, mosques and the media, without any demand for an end to official sanctioned anti-Semitic propaganda, and definitely without making this aid conditional on a total and permanent cessation of all acts of violence against civilians.

If you are a citizen of any country that is a member of the UN – and let’s face it, even Libya is a member of the UN and Gaddafi was even elected by the UN to the chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights (!) – then the taxes you pay are used to finance this ongoing barbarity against a UN member state, Israel.

If in addition you are a citizen of an EU member nation, congratulations: you’re paying a second time to support the Palestinians’ two governments in Ramallah and Gaza City as they continue their frontal assault on the Jewish state. That is because the EU is a massive donor to Palestinian well-being – the sort of well-being that gives them the time and the resources to continue with their lethal belligerence against Jews. With official sanction, official funding.

And if in addition you are Swedish, then you are to be congratulated once again: because out of the massive taxes you pay every year, a healthy portion is siphoned off to SIDA, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, which in turn uses the funds to support the Palestinians’ two governments. The governments that sanction the sort of barbaric acts against civilians witnessed today in Jerusalem.

The funds are given without any demands for reciprocity whatsoever.

It is therefore time for civil disobedience on a massive international scale: only pay your taxes into a locked account at your county administrative board or equivalent body. In Sweden at least this is a legal procedure in the event of disagreement and is allowed throughout any process of arbitration until a solution has been reached. You are not breaking the law because you are paying your taxes, but the government cannot touch the funds until it resolves your grievances. So in the meantime it is without this source of income – which after all doesn’t even get spent on citizens of your own country. Find out how to do this in your own country.

And start preventing your government from continuing to use your taxes to fund massive financial and diplomatic support for Palestinian genocidal barbarism. Don’t back off until your government, the EU and the UN all impose absolute, unequivocal demands for reciprocity from the Palestinians, however many governments they choose to have.

Here are the facts, draw your own conclusions

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Few comments, more facts. Read, absorb, and draw your own conclusions as to where humanity is to be found and where systematic, government-sanctioned and EU-financed brutality is the order of the day.

Tundra Tabloids has an interview with sergeant Edi Itelman, the Israeli military paramedic who came to the village of Itamar in the disputed territories after the Palestinian massacre of five members of the Israeli Fogel family – mother, father and three children aged 11, 3 and just 3 months.

An article was published a few days ago on this blog analysing how the UN and the world at large respond to two vicious tyrannical regimes, those of Hamas and Gaddafi, both of which systematically attack civilians, deny human rights and crush all aspirations of democracy. Explain the difference if you can.

Yet again today missiles are raining down on Israeli civilians, despatched by Hamas in the Gaza Strip. To understand how internal political rivalries between the two biggest Palestinian terrorist organisations, Fatah and Hamas, by definition always cause the spilling of Jewish blood in a kind of barbaric Middle Ages ritual, read the following article by Jonathan S. Tobin in Commentary Magazine. To widen the perspective and see how the West is set to sacrifice Israel for the UN’s strategic mistake in attacking the tyrannical but secular Gaddafi regime in Libya, only to have it replaced by a tyrannical but radical Islamist regime, read “Just Whom is the US Backing in Libya” by the David Horowitz Freedom Center and also “A Terrible Resonance” by Melanie Phillips writing in Spectator.

To understand where the weapons are coming from – and why – read about Iran’s supplies of increasingly sophisticated weaponry to both Hizbollah north of Israel and Hamas south of Israel.

And finally this blog post concludes with news of yet another rescue mission carried out by Israeli military paramedics, this one also in the disputed territories, but with the crucial difference that this time Israeli military paramedic corporal Haim Levine succeeded in saving the lives of both the Palestinian Arab mother and her infant daughter, who was named “Jude” in a gesture of gratitude to the Jewish Israelis who saved her life. This incident took place during “Israeli Apartheid Week” – the 14-day “week” (!) of hate-mongering against the Jewish state that seems to occupy many tiny minds in the West but that local Palestinian Arabs will not touch with a barge-pole. The local Palestinians prefer instead to give birth to their babies in Jewish settlements in the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria while Israel Apartheid Week rages everywhere else apart from in Israel and the disputed territories. Go figure.

Interesting contrasts: Palestinian Arabs who ritually slaughter sleeping Jewish infants by severing their heads from their torsos, Israeli military personnel who save the lives of Palestinian Arab women and infants. Both within a few hours of each other, both within a couple of kilometres of each other in the disputed territories. Missiles raining down on Jewish Israeli civilians, Jewish Israeli civilians flying to Japan to assist the victims of the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

How difficult is it really to choose sides in civilisation’s struggle for survival? Anyone who still doubts what conclusions they should draw?

Israel betrayed

Melanie Phillips, a great thinker and analyst whose prolific output can be read in a variety of publications and books, has an extremely thought-provoking article about the Palestinian Arab death-cult that the selectively blind Western world euphemistically refers to as “Palestinian culture”

It is this “culture” that justifies the executions of 3-month-old and 10-month-old Jewish infants in asleep in their cots or prams by heroic Palestinian freedom-fighters. In her article, Melanie Phillips analyses the Western world’s craven inability to address burning existential issues such as Muslim intransigence, Islamic terrorism and Islamist racism.

Read the article, even if you read nothing else this year.
