Pope kisses young muslima’s feet












Okay, so the tradition is for the Pope to follow in  the steps of Jesus and  wash the  feet of some faithful on Maundy Thursday , but did he have to go as far as snogging  them? And what’s more, kissing the feet of Young girls? And whats even more, kissing the feet of a young  Muslim female?

Is the old man into foot fetishism since kissing the feet of young girls (and of young  muslim girls to boot) is certainly not the tradition of the Church to my knowledge?

I also wonder how the traditionally  "possessive" muslim males will take this encroachment on one of their chattel by a Catholic man?










Psssssssst, Pope Benedict, come baaaack, all is forgiven!

Cadbury islamises Easter Bunnies





Thank Jesus, Cadbury  and all the pagan gods: Muslims can now safely celebrate Easter without fear of a non-halal chocolate egg.

A part from all their chocolate Easter bunnies and eggs, Cadbury lists 71 products which are halal, ranging from Dairy Milk to Freddo frogs to Red Tulip chocolates. And just to make it official that they dont like Jews, their website also states:  "We do not have any kosher-certified products." 


Paul Sheehan from the  Sydney Morning Herald  writes about the Halalisation of Australia in this excellent article: "Halal Easter eggs and cat food: where big money meets religion". (*)







Happy Easter and Happy Passover
(to all my 2 readers)
























(*) All you ever wanted to know about HALAL but were afraid to ask, or not.

Why did Jerusalem apologise to Ankara?


I think  that someone might have  pushed Netanyahu to this grotesk act of contrition with something pretty heavy  and  Erdogan's "acceptance of this apology" reminds me of  that bad joke in which Hitler's last words are quoted as "I have forgiven the Jews".

But, while we might never know what Israel's Prime Minister was blackmailed with offered in return, I agree with  Daniel Pipes who writes:

"...The Israelis should not have apologized but should have demanded an apology from Ankara for its support to the terrorist-connected group that undertook this aggressive act..."

Caroline Click reminds us of the incident for which this "apology" was given:
"... the Mavi Marmara was a Turkish ship that set sail in a bid to break Israel’s lawful maritime blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza’s coastline. When Israeli naval commandos boarded the ship to interdict it, passengers on deck attacked them – in breach of international maritime law. Soldiers were stabbed, bludgeoned and thrown overboard. In a misguided attempt to show the good faith of Israeli actions, the naval commandos were sent aboard the ship armed with paintball guns. As a consequence, the soldiers were hard-pressed to defend themselves. In the hand-to-hand combat that ensued, nine of the Turkish attackers were killed.
The Mavi Marmara was an eminently predictable fight. The Turkish group that hired the boat was an al-Qaeda-affiliated Turkish NGO named IHH. In 1999, the Turkish government was so wary of IHH that it barred the group from participating in relief efforts following a devastating earthquake.
IHH’s fortunes shifted with the rise of its fellow Islamists in the AKP ..."














 I really do  hope that this preposterous "apology" was a tactical move by Netanyahu and that he has not lost his Chutzpah, encapsulated so well in this  little "exchange" after Obama's election:

Obama:  "Yes we can" 
Netanyahu: "No you won't"



But, somehow I fear that all that this further humiliation of Israel will achieve is to enable Erdogan to gloat, as he does already with those billboards appearing on the streets of Ankara:




The text on those billboards reads: "Israel apologized to Turkey.
 Dear Prime Minister, we are grateful that you let our country experience this pride."





And so,  the West's  enemies  continue to "con the world":

Norway frightens me ...

...and did so since before Anders Breivik…but it does so even more, now, after Anders Breivik.


"...In Norway, the fox is not only guarding the hen house, he is instructing the hens how to become more tender and delicious for the sake of the Modern Multicultural Norwegian Utopia..."


... writes Baron Bodissey from Gates of Vienna in an article entitled "Multicultural Indoctrination for the Norwegian Police".



And yes, lets talk about  that Anders Breivik:

 Richard Millet,  novelist, essayist, editor (now ex-editor) of Gallimard,  considered  one of the greatest contemporary French writers, was hunted down and  out of  (Paris) town after writing an essay about this Norwegian mass killer. He called it, bitingly and with an irony escaping only those who wilfully wanted to run away from it anyway: “Eloge litteraire d’Anders Breivik”(*).  Immeeeediate collective  huffing and puffing followed by an evanouissement en masse  of  the media herd and banishment to  St. Helena, (or the literati equivalent) of Millet.  He lost his job and, so “they” (**) hope, all  his crédibilité. I have  just finished  reading  his essay and here I quote a few excerpts, without fear or favour, ..well in truth with a little of the latter ;) :

Predictably, the baying media pack completely ignored  his mantra, repeated several times in the essay: “Je n’approuve pas les actes commis par Breivik, le 22 juillet 2011, en Norvege” (I do not approve of the acts committed by Brevik on 22. 7. 2011 in Norway).


“Je ne suis pas un “expert” et nullement proche de Breivik dont, je le repete, je condamne les actes; je constate que la derive de Breivik s’inscrit dans la grande perte d’innocence et d’espoir caractérisant l’Occident…..[snip]…. Breivik est, comme tant d’autres individus, jeunes ou non, exemplaire d’une population devant qui la constante devalorisation de l’idee de nation, l’opprobre jetee sur l’amour de son pays, voire la criminalisation du patriotisme, ouvrent un abime identitaire…. (pp.109)

“I am not an  “expert”  and in no way am I  close to Breivik whose acts (I repeat) I condemn; I note that the downward spiral of Breivik falls within the huge loss of innocence and hope that characterises the West…..(snip)…....Breivik is, as so many other individuals (young or not) typical of a population before whom  the relentless devalorisation of their  Idea of “Nation” and  the scorn thrown on the love for their country, ie the criminalisation of patriotism, opens  the  abyss  of  identity loss...


….Breivik est, certes, le signe desespéré, et desesperant, de la sous-estimation par l’Europe des ravages du multiculturalisme:……(pp 114)

Breivik surely is the hopeless and desperate sign  of Europe’s underestimation of the ravages that multiculturalism has wreaked…

...Vision lenifiante d’un “exotism” à  domicile…….Dans cette décadence, Breivik est sans doute ce que meritait la Norvege et ce qui attend nos sociétés qui ne cessent de s’aveugler pour mieux se rénier…. (pp119)

...Lenin-ified vision of a domestic "exoticism"... Within  this decadence, Breivik is, without  doubt,  what  Norway had coming to it,  and what awaits our societies who incessantly  and willfully  blind themselves in order to better deny what they are... (or should/could be).

Updates 3.4.2013:

 From the Front Magazine’s article: Importing Islamic Nightmares

"...Yes, there is a serious proposal afoot in Norway to ban “anti-Feminist hatred”. Yes, the ministry really has the Orwellian name of Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion. And yes, this State Secretary in Norway really is called Ahmad Ghanizadeh, originally from Iran…..

...[snip]…

...Norway is a small country, but I still find it unhealthy that a sitting political head of state uses his most prestigious annual speech addressing the nation to launch a thinly veiled attack on individual citizens who have done nothing criminal..."

I'm an Israeli soldier !


Engough already!
About time too :)









 Col. Richard Kemp, former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan:
 ‘During its operation in Gaza, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.’










When speaking in Tel Aviv to a group of young professionals and soldiers Col. Richard Kemp, opened his speech like this:

“First of all, please allow me to say what a great honor it is for me to stand in the same room as those of you in IDF uniforms. You might think that you’re simply defending your country, but in fact you are defending mine, too. You are fighting for the whole Western world, and you are at the front lines of the battle...”






^^^^^^Well worth defending, dont you think?^^^^^^








"…The world as a whole, not just the occasional liberal brat, will continue being disappointed in Israel for not having magically and non-violently resolved the dilemma of people shooting at it no matter what it does. After all there's already a book titled, "How to Make Peace in the Middle East in Six Months or Less" on the shelf. Why not just read it and do what it says?"

Israel 101




"It’s not about the Land …just think about it…you are landing from another planet, there is this tiny country, 9 miles wide in certain places…surrounded by ginormous Muslim lands…and it’s about land ???…it’s not !!!...."

Looking at this map, even with the greatest of what Sartre called "mauvaise volonté", you would have to agree with her:  these proportions show clearly who the David is and who the Goliath. The largely hostile Arab world, surrounding Israel is 800 times bigger than the embattled yet brave little state.







And here are a few more basic facts about Israel, taken from a little pamphlet produced by StandWithUs:

Israel is 14 km wide at its narrowest point and 466 km long.

Israel can fit into Australia 369 times.

Jews are indigenous to Israel and have maintained a continuous presence for over 3,000 years according to archaeological and historical evidence and Biblical text.

Zionism:
Zion is an age-old name for Jerusalem and the land of Israel. Zionism is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people who sought to restore their freedom and independence in their ancestral homeland.






Religious Majorities in Countries around the World:




56 Islamic

49 Roman Catholic

20 Protestant

12 Eastern Orthodox

  4 Hindu

  1 Jewish





World Religions:



   

Christianity:      2  billion people

Islam:                1.3 billion people

Hinduism:            900 Million people

Buddhism:          360 million people

Judaism:             14 Million people




Palestine:

This was the name given to the region when the Romans conquered the over 1,000-year-old Jewish nation of Judea in the first century.






Restoring the Jewish Homeland:

In the mid 1800s, with help from philanthropists like Sir Moses Montefiore and donations from ordinary Jews around the world, Jews branched out from their cities and began purchasing land and building farms, villages, and schools. By 1854, Jews were the largest religious group in Jerusalem; by 1870, they were once again the majority of the city's population.






Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries:

After Israel's rebirth in 1948, over 850,000 Jews fled the rising persecution or were expelled from Arab and Muslim lands. They became homeless even though some of their communities were over 2,000 years old. Even though Israel was a fledgling country of approximately 650,000 inhabitants, Israel began absorbing not only survivors of the Holocaust but also Jews fleeing from Arab countries.






Declining Jewish Population in Middle Eastern Countries:



                                           1948                                 2004

Algeria                                140,000                            Less than 100
Egypt                                   75,000                             Less than 100
Iran                                     100,000                                       11,000
Iraq                                     150,000                            Less than    40
Lebanon                                20,000                            Less than  100
Libya                                     38,000                                                0
Morocco                              265,000                                         5,500
Syria                                       30,000                          Less than   100
Tunisia                                  105,000                                         1,500
Yemen                                   55,000                                             200






Palestinian-Arab Refugees from the Arab War against Israel in 1948:


In 1948, 160,000 Arabs who lived within Israel's borders accepted Israel's invitation to choose peace and become Israeli citizens. Between 472,000 and 750,000 Palestinian Arabs (the number is disputed by scholars) left what became Israel.





Unique Situation of Palestinian Refugees:

The tens of millions of refugees from other war torn areas in the world during this period resettled in other countries, but neighbouring Arab states, with the exception of Jordan, would  not resettle the Palestinian Arabs despite their shared history, language, and religion. Instead, Arab governments confined them in refugee neighbourhoods, refused them citizenship and then used their plight as a propaganda weapon against Israel. 

"Since 1948 Arab leaders....have used the Palestine people for selfish political purposes. This is...criminal" (King Hussein of Jordan, 1960).





The Security Fence:


  • There was no security fence along the West Bank prior to the violence of the second Intifada, during which suicide bombers walked into Israel from Palestinian communities.
  • The fence was built from 2002 to 2004. It is 97 per cent fence, and 3 per cent wall. 





Teaching Peace:

Unfortunately Palestinian children are still being taught hatred and violence in mosques and schools, on TV, and Jihad is still promoted: see  Palestinian Media Watch  and also MEMRI TV. For there to be peace in the Middle East, peace must be taught.

In the words of Golda Meir:
 "Peace will only come when they love their children more than they hate us."





The Hamas Charter is violent and racist:


"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." 
When Israel left Gaza, Hamas was elected the new governing party. The founding document of Hamas calls for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. (The translation of the charter is available online).




Creating the First Arab Palestinian State in History:

Historically, there has never been an Arab Palestinian state or Arab Palestinian sovereignty over the West Bank, Gaza or Israel.

Israel helped set up the first self-government for the Palestinians, the Palestinian Authority, in the 1993 Oslo Accords. Today the Palestinian Authority governs 98 % of the Palestinian population in the West Bank.

If Israel agrees to give up parts or most of the West Bank in peaceful negotiations with the Palestinians, it will not be "giving back" land since no sovereign Palestinian government ever existed here. Israel will be helping create, for the first time in history, a sovereign Palestinian nation by giving up possession of parts of the Jewish ancient homeland where Jews have had a continuous presence for three millennia.





West Bank Palestinian Communities:

98 per cent of the Palestinian population lives on 40 per cent of the land, leaving 60 per cent virtually unpopulated. Nablus, the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank, is surrounded by undeveloped land.






Israeli Communities beyond the Green Line



  • After Israel captured the West Bank from Jordan and captured Gaza from Egypt in a defensive war in 1967, Arab states refused Israel's offer to exchange the captured land for peace.
  • Israel built settlements to ensure its security and Israelis resettled lands their families had owned in the West Bank, where Jews had lived for millennia until the 1948 war when they were expelled.
  • Built-up areas of Israeli settlements now cover less than 1.7 per cent of West Bank land.
  • Eighty percent of Israeli settlers live in communities located close to or adjacent to the Green Line. With peaceful negotiations, they can be incorporated into Israel with minor border modifications and do not impact Palestinian population centres. 





Human Rights in Israel:

  • Israel safeguards religious liberty for all faiths.
  • Gays are protected against discrimination and hate crimes.
  • Education is encouraged equally for both men and women
  • Israel treats honour killings as harshly as other murder crimes
  • 45 per cent of women are in the workforce, the same percentage as in the US
  • Israel is a democratic country that enjoys free speech and assembly and fair and open trials.





Arabs living in Israel:

  • In 1948, the 160,000 Palestinian Arabs who remained within Israel's borders became citizens of Israel.
  • Three Israeli Arabs were elected to the first Knesset.
  • Today 1.3 million Arabs are Israeli citizens.
  • Arabic is an official language in Israel, on par with Hebrew and English.
  • Israel has enacted affirmative action policies to help its minority citizens achieve full social and economic equality.





That is how far I will quote from the "Israel Pocket Facts" booklet. There is more in it and you can access it online if you wish. I left out some of the poignant but, in my opinion unnecessary "justifications" like the important philantrophic work Jews do and always have done. I find it absolutely insulting that Israel should have to justify its existence vis à vis people and countries who, morally and ethically  would not reach the ankles of that embattled little state if they climbed up on ladders. 

Apart from the multiple and openly expressed  threats to its  very existence from  countries like Iran, Israel is being widely defamed and vilified  by some very  nasty and/or stupid people. (To my deep disgust, this includes an increasing number of  individuals identifying as  "Jews" who seem eager  and willing to reheat the ovens).   These nasties have even lost the last vestiges of shame and no longer  feel the necessity to declare  hypocritically: "we are not against the Jews, it's against the policies of Israel that we are protesting". They now more often than not take the  facile shortcut toward the jugular  without hiding what ails them really: sheer Judenhass, every bit as virulent as under Herr Schicklgruber. 



Well, I say to that little brave David: 

You Go Israel!

Aussie comment of the day




...writes my favorite Australian columnist, Andrew Bolt,  about this euphemistically named talk-fest that has been advertised far and wide as taking place right in time for the Ides of March






I do not want to give these people additional publicity, but  one of the comments to Bolt's article  is soooooooo typical of the quintessential Australian sense of humour that I just could not resist it. (I'm always at a loss to "explain" the funny side of Australians with a ready example, because usually it's in the timing, the tone and between the lines, a bit too subtle for explanation). This one is more explicit and gives me hope that  feisty sanity will prevail in Australia, despite the recent shameful treatment handed out to Geert Wilders by our cowardly politicians.


Well Bolt's quasi obituary of that  islamic  "peace" conference, elicited this laconic Aussie comment:




"Oh dear, i was sooo looking forward to it, 
i had set my watch back 700 years and everything"

All women are Queens




"All women are Queens" 
hmmm.... really ?







It was International Day of Women today, and didn't we know it! It's normally  a day when I feel even more sorry for men than usually, except for those so eager to submit  to the modern Western  power structures that they are more feminist than the feminists. So I was going to ignore it until I came across this haunting song via MEMRI who had  simply twittered it without any unnecessary or even necessary commentary.




"La femme sans haine"
Ismael Lo

 





I'm mesmerised by this song, but also troubled, especially  by this sentence: 

Ce que tu n'as pas defendu par les armes (that which you did not defend with weapons)
Ne crois pas le garder avec des larmes     (dont think you can keep it with your tears)

UN for [the violation of] Human Rights

J'accuse the UN not only of  fostering the violation of human rights, but of violating them! Just have a look what snouts suck from  that through - they are not only leeches at the public tit, but even worse....errr.... .........I'm running out of sufficiently insulting metaphors, mixed and otherwise to describe this nasty nest which  the UN has become........so just a word on one of their darlings, the newly departed Huge Chavez: some mother somewhere told her daughter or son that if s/he could not say anything nice about someone s/he should say nothing. So: "saying nothing". (*)


H/T for this video "Anonymous"  (see comments)

   



Seeing that this above video has disappeared, I think I'll  replace it with this "banned" speech at the UN by the delectable Hillel Neuer from UN Watch. The video is 6 years old, but is as relevant now as it was then......if not more so!




















(*) Update:
Actually, on reflection, I think the advice from  that mother-somewhere to her children "if there is nothing good you can say about someone, you should say nothing" is pretty stupid  and ultimately dangerous to all of us because it surely is just that kind of advice that has  led to the death of sooooooooo many in the concentration camps of Hitler and others. So let me say a 1000 words about the newly departed Chavez:

Pamela Geller - Queen Esther



"STOP BOWING DOWN !  It’s getting worse and it’s getting scarier  for the Jews …the worst thing you can do is “Operation fœtal position” We have been there, we have done that, we have died,  ENOUGH, stand up." 

With these words Pamela Geller closed the inspiring speech she gave, accepting the "Queen Esther Award for Jewish Heroism". And with Pamela Geller, a true modern day heroine in my eyes, these are not only words, beautiful words though they may be, she lives  those words every dangerous day of her life.






And she sooooooooooooo puts the finger right  on the very core of the much palavered, distorted, misrepresented so-called "Palesteenian" problem:



"It’s not about the Land …just think about it…you are landing from another planet, there is this tiny country, 9 miles wide in certain places…surrounded by ginormous Muslim lands…and it’s about land  ???…it’s not !!!  It’s about the hatred of the Jews,  and but for  the righteous gentiles like Schnee and Spencer and...we would not make it..." 




I salute you, Pamela Geller,  Queen Esther !
