Apple, Cranberry and Orange have GOT TO GO
Guess the Madassas are skipping spelling classes these days. Me, I'm proud to be a Juice.
Read this excellent post about being Jewish in the Bay Area and trying to stand up for Israel. The comments are pretty awesome, too. You know, "some of the Jews are actually good folks, but they should all be killed."
Compare and contrast with this post about Boston's protest.
Hey, wonderful wonderful Copenhagen. Unless you're a Jew.
Florida? Who would have thunk it?
Lovely commentary about the Jews from those humanitarian and peace-loving Arab leaders:
Egyptian cleric Sheikh Muhammad Al-Saghir: "I say to the people of Gaza: Take my heart, which has hardened like a stone. Take it, and use it to stone all the Jews..."
Egyptian cleric Sheikh Muhammad Mustafa: "Where is the [Islamic] nation? If 20 million people can encircle the Earth, then 20 million people could also drown Israel in a sea of blood."
Egyptian cleric Sheikh Muhammad Hassan:...They are blood-suckers. They are shedders of blood. Review the history of the Jews from beginning to end, from the very first moment to the last moment, which is now. They specialize in the shedding of blood, in crime, and in killing - even the killing of prophets...
Egyptian cleric Sheikh Amin Al-Ansari: "It is told that the Israelites killed more than 70,000 prophets in a single day. It's not the people they want to eradicate, but Revelation itself. They do not want there to be any revelation, purity, religion, or religious law. The secret behind the war between the Jews and non-Jews is that they want to have a monopoly on the spiritual and ideological leadership of the world, and eventually, the physical leadership.
Egyptian cleric Dr. Sallah Sultan: The stone which is thrown at the Jews hates these Jews, these Zionists, because Allah foretold, via His Prophet Muhammad, that Judgment Day will not come before the Jew and the Muslim fight. The Jew will hide behind stones and trees, and the stone and the tree will speak, saying: 'Oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.' The only exception will be the Gharqad tree...
Want to vacation in Spain? Not if you're Jewish because they hate you.
Some important facts and figures (from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs site):
- 900,000 Israeli residents are under immediate threat due to the 40-km range of the rocket fire out of the Gaza Strip.
- Since December 27, 285 rockets and mortars have landed in Israel, including 51 Grad rockets.
- 4 Israelis have been (deliberately) killed
- 12 Palestinians from Gaza have been transferred to Israeli hospitals for assistance
- 2500 tons of humanitarian aid has been transferred to Gaza
Large numbers of Hamas operatives are hiding in hospitals and that some are posing as medical staff. “Some are also hiding in mosques and some of those have been turned into headquarters, since they assumed Israel won’t attack them there. Their weapons’ labs have been completely destroyed and their tunnel system has been severely damaged.
The UN announcement that 51 civilians have died in the conflict in Gaza must be understood in the context of Hamas’s declared ideology to use civilians as human shields for Hamas fighters. Indeed, Hamas continues to emphasize and promote the religious ideology that death for Allah is an ideal to be actively pursued.
The goal is to convince Palestinians, including women and children, not to fear death but even to face it at the front to protect Hamas fighters. Hamas’s placement of its military installations and fighters among civilians reflects this ideology, and has led to these 51 deaths.
A Hamas representative in the PA legislative council this year expressed pride in the fact that women and children are used as human shields in fighting Israel. He described it as part of a “death industry” at which Palestinians excel, and explained that the Palestinians “desire death” with the same intensity that Israelis “desire life.”
The following is the full text of the comments by Hamas representative Fathi Hamad: “For the Palestinian people death became an industry, at which women excel and so do all people on this land: the elderly excel, the Jihad fighters excel, and the children excel. Accordingly [Palestinians] created a human shield of women, children, the elderly and the Jihad fighters against the Zionist bombing machine, as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: We desire death as you desire life.”
