Earthquake hits Turkish regime

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

The earthquake in Turkey has not only brought death and injury to the long-suffering Turkish people.

Among the earthquake’s victims is also the Turkisk regime’s attitude towards the Jewish state of Israel. Because now the Turkish regime has been forced to back down, submitting a request for emergency assistance.

Which Israel is more than willing to provide.

As indeed it should with any neighbour. Israel has previously assisted Turkey in the aftermath of various natural catastrophes, and the Turkish regime was one of the very first to offer – and indeed provide – much-needed assistance when northern Israel was afflicted by major forest fires a year ago. Despite the fact that relations between the two one-time allies have long been below freezing point thanks to the Turkish regime’s active assistance to terrorist organisations such as the Islamistic anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Hamas and Hizbollah.

That’s how things can turn out when idiot politicians stop jockeying for the limelight and instead look after their own people’s best interests – as is the case now that Turkey’s ruler Erdogan has requested and accepted the help his people need.

If the Israeli government were anything like the Turkish regime, it should charter a large ship – the Mavi Marmara comes to mind for some reason – and load it with all the ”aid” that the IHH and other “aid organisations” sent to Gaza’s Hamas strongman Ismail Haniyeh. He famously refused to accept the cargo since the medicines were already out of date prior to their despatch and thus posed a health risk to the people of Gaza.

Thank goodness the Israelis are a sensible people and do not stoop to such posturing…

But perhaps the good people of Gaza may wish to repay the Turkish regime’s “generosity” and return the aid flotilla’s out-of-date-medicines and broken wheelchairs directly to Turkey’s Erdogan? Just think of the headline: “Aid flotilla from Gaza to Turkey”.

And it wouldn’t cost the Gazans a penny.

No price too high

The Jewish state is experiencing mixed feelings today.

In Israel today there is elation at the return of Gilad Shalit, who was kidnapped from Israel at age 19 and held in indescribably inhumane conditions for five years by Islamist terror organisation Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

For five long years after his illegal abduction from inside Israel he was held without visits by the Red Cross, or Amnesty International, or EU representatives (Shalit holds dual Israeli and French (=EU) citizenship), or UN staffers. Meantime the Red Cross, Amnesty International, EU and UN have poured in billions of dollars into the Gaza Strip even as Shalit’s most fundamental human rights were being violated. These august bodies justified their extraordinary generosity by claiming that the human rights of the Gaza Arabs are inviolable.

Gilad Shalit’s human rights, however, were not even on their agenda.

Go figure.

In Israel today there is also pain, suffering, worry, rage even, over the release of 1027 convicted terrorists, murderers and mass-murderers in exchange for the life of Gilad Shalit. The decision to release these terrorists, some just in their teens, has sparked considerable controversy in the Jewish state. While everyone agrees that Shalit’s life is worth saving at any cost, many also feel that “any cost” automatically means that more Israelis will now be kidnapped by Islamist terrorists – and indeed Hamas openly admit that they will do just that. “Any cost” is felt to be a cost too high. Not for the release of Gilad Shalit, but for the precedent it will set for future terrorist activity.

A lot of nonsense is appearing in the press about the unacceptability of Israel incarcerating terrorist teenagers in jail. As though age is an automatic get-out-of-jail ticket in a pleasant game of Monopoly. If you use a bomb, a gun or a rock to kill innocent civilians in some misguided Jihadi-inspired determination to drive your own peculiar political and religious agenda, you are a terrorist. End of story. A bomb is a lethal weapon. So is a gun. So is a stone.

A “stone”? We’re not talking shiny pebbles to decorate the sandcastle you’re building with your toddlers at the seaside, we’re talking rocks and boulders. Lethal weapons when they hit the soft, unprotected tissue of a human body – or skull. Stones, rocks, boulders – call them what you will, they are being used to kill. By Arab teenagers who cannot afford their weapon of choice, a gun or a bomb. The age of the terrorist – whose actions are fuelled by religious bigotry and evilly racist anti-Semitic diatribe broadcast from mosque, radio, TV set and classroom – is utterly irrelevant. If you kill or deliberately intend to kill for political and/or religious gain, be prepared for your punishment, whether you are a teenage racist, middle-aged Jihadi or septuagenarian anti-Semite.

So enough of the excuses. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist – irrespective of age, gender, religion or nationality. Do the crime and pay the price.

Tuesday the 18th of October 2011 in Israel – a day of elation, sorrow, regret and concern for the future in equal measure.

But above all a day of joy for the safe return of Gilad Shalit. Abducted from Israel at age 19, returned home at age 25 after a terrible price was paid – in terms of his long years of suffering and the freed terrorists who will now be pumped back into the Jihadi system.

Thank you Red Cross, thank you Amnesty International, thank you UN and EU. Democrats, people of principle and law-abiding citizens the world over know what you represent: nothing, absolutely nothing.

Apart from the massive salaries you take home every month – financed by the taxes paid by democrats, people of principle and law-abiding citizens the world over.

Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Hamas confirms it is a racist organisation

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Hamas has finally come clean and confirmed what has long been obvious to everyone apart from the Western world’s terrorism apologists and PC-loonies: that Islamists are racists.

According to various reports, Hamas has agreed to free Gilad Shalit, the Israeli Jewish youngster kidnapped from Israel at the age of 19 and held incommunicado ever since. The terrorist organisation has agreed to release him in exchange for 1027 Islamists. Hamas thereby affirms that it takes no less than 1027 Islamists to equate to one single Jew. Talk about an inferiority complex…

And yet they have the gumption to label the Jewish state racist! Logic and Islamism – two mutually incompatible concepts.

The 1027 fanatical terrorists – of whom about one-third have life sentences for murder or mass-murder and whose victims were all innocent civilians – have been granted the full suite of customary privileges by Israel during their captivity: visits by their families, visits by the Red Cross, visits by Amnesty International, visits by lawyers, they have had free access to education and higher education during their incarceration – in short, everything done by the book in strict accordance with international legislation and the full set of ethical rules that govern humane behaviour in a civilised society.

Gilad Shalit, on the other hand, has not had any visits from his family. Or the Red Cross. Or Amnesty International. Indeed, those august bodies have not even demanded the right to visit him during his illegal incarceration. Nor has he been seen by a lawyer. Or by anyone else. In fact, Hamas is inordinately proud of the fact that Gilad Shalit has not even seen sunlight in all these past five years. Thus far the Islamists’ view of humane behaviour and civilised social mores – played out to the accompaniment of a deafening silence by the rest of the world even as that very same world opens its wallets to the Islamist rulers of Gaza.

So it would seem that Islamists are not just rabid racists by their own proud admission, they are also pig-greedy barbarians.

Nothing new of course to a reader with a modicum of intelligence, but apparently breathtakingly new to the media, EU, UN, the Church of Sweden, Diakonia, SIDA and all the other individuals and organisations that over the past five years have done everything in their power to aid and abet Hamas in Gaza at the same time as Gilad Shalit’s human rights have been trampled underfoot by the EU-financed military boots of proud Hamas terrorists.

Now let’s just hope that the Islamists in Gaza break with their long tradition and actually play straight, releasing Gilad Shalit.

After all, anything is possible – this time Hamas may even keep its word even though the organisation has signally failed to uphold a single previous agreement.

Here’s wishing Gilad Shalit a swift, safe and smooth return to civilisation and the best possible re-acclimatisation to a life of freedom with his family in Israel, the only free and liberal democracy in the entire Middle East.
