Child Abuse in Gaza




And it's certainly not the IDF soldiers doing it whose message to the childhood killers is: 


"Don't let another generation of kids from Gaza fall in to the evil hands of Hamas"









































Psssssst:

The War THEY wage against us (in English&German)




At the moment I am not able to subtitle for technical reasons, so I was glad to find that Martin Sellner made this video in English and German.  This young leader of the Austrian Identitaires is worth following and  listening to. He was behind the courageous (some called it - not without reason "kamikaze") initiative DEFEND EUROPE that took on the people smugglers and their NGO helpers in the Mediterranean. 















For those of you who understand German I recommend this version;  not exactly in the same in form, but basically with the same message a little more elaborate perhaps.

Is "dreaming of a White Christmas" racist ?












^^^Sung by The Drifters^^^

 Cartoon by Joshua Held. 
Featuring Bill Pinkney on lead bass and Clyde McPhatter on tenor.





The Drifters













I'm asking if "dreaming of a white Christmas" is considered racist these days not least because of this little picture below which I found on twitter some time ago. I don't know if it is authentic or satire, but it tickled my fancy because it kills at least two cows which have become "sacred" - I let you guess which ones ;)





.....so I ate them  !

Some light Hanukkah candles, some burn Jewish flags






H/t for this song go to the on line magazine Jews Down Under, whose  Israel correspondent, Arlene Kushner, introduces it like so:


Chanukah Sameach to all who are celebrating.
A traditional Maoz Tzur, sung after the candles are lit:










And while a-hunting for things Hanukkah, I came across this pearl on Gates of Vienna posted on December 12, 2017 by Dymphna







"On the First Night of Hanukkah…




A Merry Hanukkah to those lighting candles tonight. I’m a sucker for anything a capella. And for latkes – how could any Irishwoman resist latkes, for heaven’s sake?

Our menorah’s all set. Now if I could just find my Advent wreath, we’d be ready to go."








You will find more information about the writers, composers etc. at the site of "The Maccabeats", here are the lyrics for the song:





In a Judean province ruled by pompous king Antiochus, Under pressure, grow up to be a hero and commander? When the king came around, we said “this decree’s insane, man We could not observe our laws while living in our own land! Fight back like your father, don't forget from whence you came, And we’ll call you by a brand new name What’s your name, sir? Call him Judah Maccabee The hammer whose aim is true And we’re ready to show the king We don’t owe him a single thing The world will never be the same! You’ll be Greek Soon you’ll see You will pray to Zeus the same as me You’ll be Greek No need to fight Our Hellenism serves you right You won’t miss your Shabbat Or circumcision for your tots And if you don’t comply I will send my great Selucid army and you’ll tell history goodbye We are not gonna betray our God We are not gonna betray our God Hey yo, we don’t need permission To keep our great traditions And we’re not gonna betray our God We been here since Abraham and mom Sarah And now we’d never vow to bow to a statue of Hera Our teacher Moses passed down the book that is good It said we pray just to one God And not an effigy of stone or of wood Two thousand years and while the world’s still turnin’ Traditions givin’ us the teachin’ and learnin’ We keep (on) readin’ ‘n yearnin’ We want to keep the Sabbath and the days that are holy Can we uphold our Temple ceremony? We’re past patiently waitin’. we’re passionately Smashin the invasion Taking action on rededication! And though this story has its fair share of sorrow Today we’re gonna fight for tomorrow And we are not betray our God! Although we may not live forever We can be glad we won the fight When our descendants come together They’ll tell our story for eight nights Celebrate our freedom Something they can never take a way No matter what they tell you (Let’s have a festival of light) Celebrate our victory And how we changed history And tell the story of eight nights They’ll the story of the lights They’ll tell the story for eight nights


A random thought:


During this Hanukkah and Christmas season we, of the Judeo/Christian tradition light candles:


Jews light the Hanukkah candles

Christians light the Advent candles

while Muslims "light" Jewish flags and more...


I am always  taken aback when I hear the cliché of the "THREE Great Religions" and think that Buddhism should definitely replace Islam in that trinity since Buddhists also show a love for lighting candles...while all that Muslims (yes yes, not ALL muslims of course) seem to "light" are cars and Israeli Flags. 

The photo below  was taken in Berlin a couple of days ago, and while the German Mainstream Media (die Lügenpresse) waxed lyrical about that  "firm disapproval of Anti-Semitism from the Merkel politicians" they hardly reported on  those Turkish/Arab/Muslims who screamed  for the "death of Jews" on the streets of Malmö (Sweden) and Berlin, and if they "reported" on it at all,  then in the same tone that some blame rape victims for the rape simply because President Trump kept an election promise and actually called the Capital of Israel the Capital of Israel.

P.S.: I am sick to my stomach and to my soul  
when I see what filth  roams in the streets
 of  my native Germany these days.

What does "Jihad" really mean?

Hear the definitive explanation from the horse's, camel's mouth and by using the metaphor of "camel" I mean no undue disrespect, since the Sheik himself compares Islam to a Camel and Jihad to the Camel's highest hump. 

I have taken the introduction, the video and the transcript from the Middle East Media Research Institute's site. In my opinion they do outstanding work and whenever I use one of their videos I do make a donation. This is their Clip No. 6302. 




"On November 7, Kuwaiti cleric Sheikh Saalim Bin Sa'd At-Taweel published a lecture on his official YouTube channel explaining the concept of Jihad. Sheikh At-Taweel said that while "Jihad" has different meanings, "Jihad for the sake of Allah" means fighting infidels in order to spread Islam. He further explained that slavery is part of Islam and said that Muslims should not try to deny this. In fact, he said, slavery is "one of the virtues of Islam" because it provides infidels with an opportunity to become Muslims and avoid the Hellfire. Over the past decade, Sheikh At-Taweel has made several visits to the United States and was guest lecturer in mosques in Worcester, Massachusetts, Modesto, California, and New York, and elsewhere. In 2016, he participated in the 3rd Annual U.K. National Knowledge Conference.












I'm sure the good Sheik does not mean to be funny when he says:


 "...If Islam were a camel, Jihad for the sake of Allah would be the top of its hump..."

...but I had to giggle nevertheless and made a quick note to myself that "doing the jihad" does not necessarily mean "humping" ...






Transcript



Saalim Bin Sa'd At-Taweel: 

When we speak about Jihad for the sake of Allah, we mean fighting for the sake of Allah. The word "Jihad" has other meanings apart from "fighting." "Fighting" is only one of the meanings of the word "Jihad," but "Jihad for the sake of Allah" refers to "fighting."


[…]


Indeed, (Jihad) is the pinnacle of Islam. If Islam were a camel, Jihad for the sake of Allah would be the top of its hump. The Prophet Muhammad called it the pinnacle of Islam. It is undoubtedly among the best forms of worship. It involves the sacrifice of one's soul and one's money, and great effort merits great reward.


[…]


Yes, there is defensive Jihad and offensive Jihad. Defensive Jihad means defending yourself. When you need to defend yourself, you do not need a fatwa. When you are attacked, you are allowed to defend yourself any way you can. Waging offensive Jihad means attacking the infidels in order to conquer their countries and bring them into the fold of Islam. If they refuse to convert to Islam, they are commanded to pay the jizya poll tax, and if they refuse to pay the jizya, they are killed. This is called "offensive Jihad."


[…]


Indeed, the greatest goal of Jihad for the sake of Allah is to instate monotheism, "until religion belongs to Allah alone," or "until religion belongs to Allah," according to another verse. "Fight them until there is no more fitna" - which means polytheism - "until religion belongs to Allah alone," or in other words, until people adhere to monotheism and believe in Allah alone. This is a clear and unambiguous verse in the Quran. According to the Sunna, as it appears in the two Sahih compilations, the Prophet Muhammad said: "I was ordered to fight the people." Why? He said: "until they attest that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is His prophet, and they establish prayer, and pay the zakkat."


[…]


The reason we fight is in order to spread Islam. Let's say there is someone who prevents you from spreading Islam to all the infidels, all people on Earth, who were created by Allah so that they could worship Him. You want to spread your religion both to jinns and to people. If somebody is preventing you from doing so, you may fight him, so that you can spread Islam.


[…]


We do not do this in order to take the money of (the infidels), in order to expand the Muslim lands, or in order to gain control over them... No. We fight them so that they will become Muslims.


[…]


One of the virtues of Islam is that the women and children (of the enemy) are not killed. They are taken as slaves, and they are treated well. They are called upon to convert to Islam. How many Muslim ulema were white slaves, who were put to use by Allah as Islamic scholars. If they had died as infidels, they would have been condemned to eternal Hellfire. Instead, they were taken captive. The Prophet Muhammad took a Jewish woman and married her, and she became the Mother of the Believers. Imagine that! She had been Jewish before. Had she died believing in her distorted Judaism, she would have gone to Hell. Instead, she was taken captive, and she was found to be the most suitable woman for the Prophet Muhammad.


[..]


So this is one of the virtues of Islam, but some people are trying to shrug it off, and say: "There is no slavery in Islam." How can you say this? It is in the Quran.

[...]



What is it with  political "leaders" like Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, David Cameron, Theresa May, Bush, Clinton, Obama etc.   that they will not believe Muslims, when they speak the truth? It can't be "Raaaaaaacism", can it, since Islam is not a race....but it sure looks to me like some very deep seated contempt for Mohamed's followers.

Jerusalem - The Capital of Israel








To be precise, the President of the United States, Donald Trump has today not announced the capital of Israel, but simply  recognised the right of the people of Israel to determine their own seat of government. 


Jerusalem has been the capital city of the Jewish people for more than 3,000 years, 69 of which the city has been the capital of the liberal-democratic and sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people, the State of Israel.



A message to "The Guardian", a modern-day kind of "Der Stürmer", delivered some time ago by HonestReporting  much more nicely than I would be inclined to do: 











WHATS THAT ? An election promise ?








And WHAT IS  THAT ?

An election promise kept ?








An election promise kept, something so rare that not even  I can find an appropriate metaphor for it...so I give the floor to Bibi and his thank you message: 












Someone posted on line  that this decent and courageous act by President Trump had brought the Jew Haters out of the wood works. I have always thought there are so many out in the open already, that there can hardly be any left in hiding......

Paul Joseph Watson gives us some of those haters. Looking at this list of seven,  I see  seven  reasons why President Trump decision to move the American Embassy to the Capital of Israel could only be the right one: 







You may add to those the pathologically islamophile Pope Francis who doesn't seem to like Catholics very  much, let alone Jews.

Joining him are Merkel's toyboys (will they claim the Nürnberg Defence when the time comes?) her own tubby (socialist) foreign minister and Macron the President of France who owes so much to the Muslim Brotherhood, not least of all his exalted position. I wonder: can the condemnation from her other obedient little servant, Zuckerberg from Face book be far behind ? ......


No-body's toyboys are these  two of my favourite Australian political commentators, authors and self-identified "Outsiders": Andrew Bolt and the deliciously erudite Rowan Dean, editor of the OZ Spectator magazine: 











Recently, I posted about an Imam I "could" respect. Take away the "conditional" in that sentence and read:  An Imam that I "do "respect. This is what he had to say about the matter: 






















As I go along, I will add some comments that I find interesting and/or funny, and you might too: This one was a  little exchange on the VladTepes blog:


I cringe every time I hear that line about Jerusalem being the birthplace of the “three great religions”. Judaism and Christianity happened all over the Galilee but Islam is from Mecca and Medina, not Jerusalem. Initially, Muhammad had the Muslims praying in the direction of Jerusalem but when the Jews failed to join his religion he changed the praying direction from Jerusalem to Mecca. The only reason it had been Jerusalem is because Muhammad wanted the Jews to join him, but his love turned to hate when they “betrayed” him by not converting to his religion, which the Jews found laughable…
Muslims lie freely and it catches us off guard. We’re not used to proper upper class educated people simply lying about things that can be easily disproven, but Believers do it all the time and us Infidels just can’t seem to figure it out. The Muslims conquered Jerusalem and built a mosque on the Jews’ most holy site, not out of devotion, but out of hatred and spite. There is not one shred of truth to the “birthplace of the three great religions” meme. Is Paris the birthplace of Naziism just because Hitler invaded France?

AfD: The Last Hope for Germany, Beatrix von Storch






Last weekend the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland) held their 8th Party Congress in Hannover. 

Beatrix von Storch, MP, is one of my favourite AfP members. As always, she takes no prisoners and packs quite a few punches into even short speeches, like this one:


"Islam belongs as little to Germany as Merkel belongs in the Chancellery"


I like Beatrix von Storch for her courage, her direct speech but also for her wicked sense of humour. In this little speech she puts forward her candidature for a position in the leader team and so has to go through some routine questions. The first one of those is if she had a clean Police Record. In answering that, no, because she had been a member of the FdP (Free Democrat Party) for 2 years, she quite confuses the poor - seemingly very comme il faut questioner who takes some time to realise she is teasing him.








And yes, she got the vote and is in the leadership team which proves to me yet again, that the AfD is as good as any political party in Germany gets.


More to follow on this 
and the present political situation in Germany
















Geert Wilders BANNED From Entering Belgian No-Go Zone



"Geert Wilders was banned from entering no-go zone, muslim enclave Sint-Jans Molenbeek in Brussels. Molenbeek is a Muslim neighbourhood and a breeding place of radical Islam. Many terrorists in Europe came from Molenbeek, such as Salah Abdeslam who was one of the Paris attackers. Geert Wilders and Philip de Winter were refused to enter Molenbeek, because the municipality could not guarantee their safety and though that going there would be an act of provocation. The freedom of expression therefore no longer exists in Molenbeek. The neighbourhood has become an ideological enclave." writes Paul Nielsen.

It's Sunday, it's Music Time






These are the sounds of my Bavarian childhood.....up to about minute 3.00. What comes after that could be a metaphor for what is happening to my old country now......except that, in that new reality, the girls are not laughing......




...





And I wish those who celebrate it, a happy 1st Advent
