Den oprindelige ide bag dette indlæg er et blogindlæg om antisemitisme i modkraft.dk hvor man leger med grænserne om, at man ikke skal købe hos jøderne med den begrundelse at det ikke må være kriminelle jøder fra vestbredden. Men modkraft.dk er en udemærket portal til at afdække venstrefløjens modstand mod Israel, zionisme og nu også jøder fra vestbredden. Se selv efter eller kommenter, for dér er antal kommentarer meget større end her.

kilde her There are two mysteries that have defied explanation for as long as anyone can remember. The first mystery is anti-Semitism, which is a mystery because there are few things in history that have been as consistent, as universal, and as predictable as anti-Semitism. From one country to another, from one culture to another, from one religion to another — although lifestyles, philosophies, and so forth are extremely different, there is one thing all of the peoples of the world had in common: They all, at one point or another, included individuals, and even large segments of their populations, who did not like Jews.

What did these people know about Jews? Sometimes a lot, sometimes very little, sometimes nothing at all. And yet all of them have a discomfort with Jews. Some of the things anti-Semites come up with concerning Jews and Judaism, make us wonder, “What did we do? What could we possibly have done to cause them to suspect such a thing?”

For example, there’s the accusation that Jews are plotting to take over the world. We have our faults, we’re vulnerable to some legitimate criticism sometimes, but, plotting to take over the world? Where did that come from? In order to examine the mystery of anti-Semitism, one needs to have an understanding of its target, which is the Jewish people

Yaron Brook om Israel og araberne, også palæstinenserne

leave a comment »


Yaron Brook er leder af Ayn Rand Instituttet i USA, men hvem er så Ayn Rand? I disse år omtales hun mere og mere og sidste uge var selveste Yarin Brook i Danmark og holde et indlæg for hundreder at tilhørere. Hendes filosofi er politisk tættest knyttet til LA – Liberal Alliance.

Hun blev født i St. Petersborg i Rusland som den ældste af tre døtre af en jødisk, men hovedsageligt agnostisk, familie. Hendes forældre var Sinovij Sakharovitj Rosenbaum og Anna Borisovna Rosenbaum, og hendes to yngre søstre var Natasja (1907) og Eleanora “Nora” (1910). Hun var tolv under den russiske revolution i 1917, og hendes familieliv blev forstyrret af opkomsten af Bolsjevik-partiet. Hendes faders apotek blev konfiskeret af sovjetterne, og familien flygtede til Krim for at komme sig økonomisk og her færdiggjorde hun grundskolen. Hendes personlige oplevelser af det kommunistiske regime var med til at forme hendes politiske livsbane. Ayn Rand emigrerede til USA i 1925, resten af familien, på nær Eleanora, døde alle under 2. verdenskrig. Eleanora døde i 1999.

Fra en tidlig alder fattede Ayn Rand en interesse for litteratur og film, og op igennem sin barndom læste hun mange af de klassiske romantiske forfattere, Sir Walter ScottAlexandre DumasVictor Hugo – senere beskrev hun Victor Hugo som sin favoritforfatter. På St. Petersborgs Universitetlæste hun filosofi og historie, og var her mest optaget af Edmond RostandFriedrich Schiller og Fjodor Dostojevskij, såvel som filosofferne Nietzsche (Således talte Zarathustra) og især Aristoteles (Organon (Logik)) som hun anså som verdenshistoriens mest afgørende filosof. I 1924 optoges hun på fakultetet for dramaturgi for at studere til filmmanuskriptforfatter. Men i 1925 blev hun tildelt et visum til USA for at besøge familie, og efter et kort ophold hos noget familie i Chicago besluttede hun sig for aldrig at vende tilbage til Sovjet – hvis kommunistiske regime hun afskyede. I stedet tog hun til Los Angeles/Hollywood for at forsøge sig som filmmanuskriptforfatter og ændrede i den forbindelse sit navn til “Ayn Rand”. “Ayn” er en tilpasning af det finske navn “Aino”, og “Rand” kommer sandsynligvis af at hendes oprindelige navn Alisa Sinovjevna Rosenbaum.

Hollywood startede Ayn Rand med at tage forskelligt forefaldende arbejde, det var her, hun som statist i en indspilning af Cecil B. DeMilles King of Kings, opsøgte sin kommende mand, skuespilleren Frank O’Connor. De to blev gift i 1929, og i 1931 blev Ayn Rand amerikansk statsborger.

Hendes første professionelle succes som forfatter kom i 1932 med salget af filmanuskriptet Red Pawn til filmselskabet Universal Studios. I 1934 skrev hun stykket The Night of January 16th som hun havde stor succes med, og i 1936 udgav hun romanerne Vi der lever (originaltitel: We the Living, på dansk 1945) og i 1938 Anthem. Grundet især Vi der lever’s anti-kommunistiske tema (selvbiografisk beskrivelse af det kommunistiske regimes brutalitet) og det politiske klima i 1930’ernes, hvor amerikanske intellektuelle ofte var pro-kommunistiske og forblændede af Sovjet, var bøgerne svære at få udgivet og blev begge dårligt modtaget med meget negativ omtale til følge. Anthem kunne ikke engang udgives i USA, men måtte udgives af et engelsk forlag. Ayn Rand beskriver selv Vi der lever som hendes mest selvbiografiske roman, men hverken Vi der lever ellerAnthem, skrevet før hun fandt hendes egen stil, kan betegnes som værende repræsentative for hendes forfatterskab. Vi der lever blev senere, uden Ayn Rands tilladelse, filmatiseret i Italien som Noi vivi og Addio, Kira, men blev dog hurtigt censureret, efter det blev åbenbart for fascisterne, at de var lige så antifascistiske som de var antikommunistiske. Filmene blev genredigeret, nu med Ayn Rands tilladelse, og genudgivet i 1986.

I 1935 startede Ayn Rand på Kun den stærke er fri (Originaltitel: The Fountainhead), som i modsætning til Vi der lever’s politiske tema tog udgangspunkt i etiske dilemmaer; frihed, uafhængighed og personlig integritet. Bogens hovedperson, Howard Roark, er første instans af Ayn Rands gennemgående arketype af den ideelle mand, der gennem personlig integritet og stræben formår at sætte sine ideer igennem. Kun den stærke er fri skulle tage hende syv år at færdiggøre, og som med hendes tidligere bøger vise sig ualmindeligt svær at få udgivet. Tolv forlag afviste Kun den stærke er fri, før den i 1943 blev taget op af Bobbs-Merrill. Men trods disse besværligheder samt dårlig modtagelse af kritikere og tidens intellektuelle begyndte salget langsomt at tage fart, hovedsagligt gennem mund-til-mund-anbefalinger, og endte med at blive en verdensomspændende bestseller og give Ayn Rand blivende finansiel uafhængighed. Kun den stærke er fri blev filmatiseret i 1949 med Gary Cooper og Patricia Neal i hovedrollerne, et stykke Ayn Rand selv skrev filmmanuskriptet til.

Ayn Rands anden, største og mest ambitiøse bog, Og verden skælvede (Atlas Shrugged), påbegyndt i 1946, blev udgivet af forlaget Random House i 1957 og blev omgående en øjeblikkelig international bestseller. Og verden skælvede anses som hendes mest gennemførte og komplette udførelse i fiktion af filosofien objektivisme og i appendikset til Og verden skælvede findes denne korte opremsning af hendes filosofi:

”Min filosofi, i sin essens, er konceptet af mennesket som heroisk skabning, med egen lykke som moralsk formål med livet, med produktiv skabelse som dets mest noble aktivitet, og fornuft som det eneste absolutte.”

Bogens tema er menneskets rolle i samfundet. Og Ayn Rand opstiller den kapitalistiske iværksætter og industrialist som et af de mest ærværdige medlemmer af samfundet og modsatte sig med alt hvad hun havde den populære dæmonisering af samme. I Og verden skælvede forestiller hun sig således en verden, hvor statens stigende regulering, nationalisering og beskatning af erhvervslivet, får de amerikanske industrialister til at gå i strejke og trække sig tilbage fra samfundet, hvorefter den amerikanske økonomi langsomt men sikkert begynder at kollapse, godt hjulpet på vej af statens forsøg på at adressere problemet ved at endnu flere restriktioner på en allerede restriktiv økonomi. På trods af bogens centrale politiske omdrejningspunkt, tager bogen også så forskellige emner op som sex, musik, medicin og menneskelige kunnen.

Og verden skælvede skulle vise sig at være Ayn Rands sidste skønlitterære værk. Under arbejdet flyttede hun og hendes mand til New York, hvor Ayn Rand kom i forbindelse med en række personer der var blevet interesseret i hendes filosofiske tanker og sammen skabte de objektivisme-bevægelsen til at udbrede hendes filosofi. Denne gruppe mennesker omfattede bl.a. Nathaniel Branden, hans kone BarbaraLeonard Peikoff og Alan Greenspan – senere USAs centralbankdirektør.

1960’erne og 1970’erne skrev og foredrog Ayn Rand om sin filosofi. Hendes essays i denne periode blev for størstedelen udgivet i tidsskriftet The Objectivist Newsletter (1962–1965), og senere det større The Objectivist, (1966–1971), og til slut The Ayn Rand Letter (1971-1976)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tale i FN igår

leave a comment »


Speech by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
to the UN General Assembly’s General Debate
27 September 2012

Thank you very much Mr. President.

It’s a pleasure to see the General Assembly presided by the Ambassador from Israel, and it’s good to see all of you, distinguished delegates.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Three thousand years ago, King David reigned over the Jewish state in our eternal capital, Jerusalem. I say that to all those who proclaim that the Jewish state has no roots in our region and that it will soon disappear.

Throughout our history, the Jewish people have overcome all the tyrants who have sought our destruction. It’s their ideologies that have been discarded by history.

The people of Israel live on. We say in Hebrew Am Yisrael Chai, and the Jewish state will live forever.

The Jewish people have lived in the land of Israel for thousands of years. Even after most of our people were exiled from it, Jews continued to live in the land of Israel throughout the ages. The masses of our people never gave up the dreamed of returning to our ancient homeland.

Defying the laws of history, we did just that. We ingathered the exiles, restored our independence and rebuilt our national life. The Jewish people have come home.

We will never be uprooted again.

Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year.

Every year, for over three millennia, we have come together on this day of reflection and atonement. We take stock of our past. We pray for our future. We remember the sorrows of our persecution; we remember the great travails of our dispersion; we mourn the extermination of a third of our people, six million, in the Holocaust.

But at the end of Yom Kippur, we celebrate.

We celebrate the rebirth of Israel. We celebrate the heroism of our young men and women who have defended our people with the indomitable courage of Joshua, David, and the Maccabees of old. We celebrate the marvel of the flourishing modern Jewish state.​

In Israel, we walk the same paths tread by our patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But we blaze new trails in science, technology, medicine, agriculture.

In Israel, the past and the future find common ground.

Unfortunately, that is not the case in many other countries. For today, a great battle is being waged between the modern and the medieval.

The forces of modernity seek a bright future in which the rights of all are protected, in which an ever-expanding digital library is available in the palm of every child, in which every life is sacred. ​

The forces of medievalism seek a world in which women and minorities are subjugated, in which knowledge is suppressed, in which not life but death is glorified.

These forces clash around the globe, but nowhere more starkly than in the Middle East.

Israel stands proudly with the forces of modernity. We protect the rights of all our citizens: men and women, Jews and Arabs, Muslims and Christians – all are equal before the law.

Israel is also making the world a better place: our scientists win Nobel Prizes. Our know-how is in every cell-phone and computer that you’re using. We prevent hunger by irrigating arid lands in Africa and Asia.

Recently, I was deeply moved when I visited Technion, one of our technological institutes in Haifa, and I saw a man paralyzed from the waist down climb up a flight of stairs, quite easily, with the aid of an Israeli invention.

And Israel’s exceptional creativity is matched by our people’s remarkable compassion. When disaster strikes anywhere in the world – in Haiti, Japan, India, Turkey, Indonesia and elsewhere – Israeli doctors are among the first on the scene, performing life-saving surgeries.

In the past year, I lost both my father and my father-in-law. In the same hospital wards where they were treated, Israeli doctors were treating Palestinian Arabs. In fact, every year, thousands of Arabs from the Palestinian territories and Arabs from throughout the Middle East come to Israel to be treated in Israeli hospitals by Israeli doctors.

I know you’re not going to hear that from speakers around this podium, but that’s the truth. It’s important that you are aware of this truth.

It’s because Israel cherishes life, that Israel cherishes peace and seeks peace.

We seek to preserve our historic ties and our historic peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan. We seek to forge a durable peace with the Palestinians.

President Abbas just spoke here.

I say to him and I say to you:

We won’t solve our conflict with libelous speeches at the UN. That’s not the way to solve it. We won’t solve our conflict with unilateral declarations of statehood.

We have to sit together, negotiate together, and reach a mutual compromise, in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the one and only Jewish State.

Israel wants to see a Middle East of progress and peace. We want to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – coexist in peace and in mutual respect.

Yet the medieval forces of radical Islam, whom you just saw storming the American embassies throughout the Middle East, they oppose this.

They seek supremacy over all Muslims. They are bent on world conquest. They want to destroy Israel, Europe, America. They want to extinguish freedom. They want to end the modern world.

Militant Islam has many branches – from the rulers of Iran with their Revolutionary Guards to al Qaeda terrorists to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe.

But despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. That intolerance is directed first at their fellow Muslims, and then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn’t submit to their unforgiving creed.

They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma and unrelenting conflict.

I am sure of one thing. Ultimately they will fail. Ultimately, light will penetrate the darkness.

We’ve seen that happen before.

Some five hundred years ago, the printing press helped pry a cloistered Europe out of a dark age. Eventually, ignorance gave way to enlightenment.

So too, a cloistered Middle East will eventually yield to the irresistible power of freedom and technology. When this happens, our region will be guided not by fanaticism and conspiracy, but by reason and curiosity. ​

I think the relevant question is this: it’s not whether this fanaticism will be defeated. It’s how many lives will be lost before it’s defeated.

We’ve seen that happen before too.

Some 70 years ago, the world saw another fanatic ideology bent on world conquest. It went down in flames. But not before it took millions of people with it. Those who opposed that fanaticism waited too long to act. In the end they triumphed, but at an horrific cost.

My friends, we cannot let that happen again.

At stake is not merely the future of my own country. At stake is the future of the world. Nothing could imperil our common future more than the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons.

To understand what the world would be like with a nuclear-armed Iran, just imagine the world with a nuclear-armed al-Qaeda.

It makes no difference whether these lethal weapons are in the hands of the world’s most dangerous terrorist regime or the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization. They’re both fired by the same hatred; they’re both driven by the same lust for violence.

Just look at what the Iranian regime has done up till now, without nuclear weapons.

In 2009, they brutally put down mass protests for democracy in their own country. Today, their henchmen are participating in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Syrian civilians, including thousands of children, directly participating in this murder.

They abetted the killing of American soldiers in Iraq and continue to do so in Afghanistan. Before that, Iranian proxies killed hundreds of American troops in Beirut and in Saudi Arabia. They’ve turned Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds, embedding nearly 100,000 missiles and rockets in civilian areas. Thousands of these rockets and missiles have already been fired at Israeli communities by their terrorist proxies.

In the last year, they’ve spread their international terror networks to two dozen countries across five continents – from India and Thailand to Kenya and Bulgaria. They’ve even plotted to blow up a restaurant a few blocks from the White House in order to kill a diplomat.

And of course, Iran’s rulers repeatedly deny the Holocaust and call for Israel’s destruction almost on a daily basis, as they did again this week from the United Nations.

So I ask you, given this record of Iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine Iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. Imagine their long range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs.

Who among you would feel safe in the Middle East? Who would be safe in Europe? Who would be safe in America? Who would be safe anywhere?

There are those who believe that a nuclear-armed Iran can be deterred like the Soviet Union.

That’s a very dangerous assumption.​

Militant Jihadists behave very differently from secular Marxists. There were no Soviet suicide bombers. Yet Iran produces hordes of them.

Deterrence worked with the Soviets, because every time the Soviets faced a choice between their ideology and their survival, they chose their survival.

But deterrence may not work with the Iranians once they get nuclear weapons.

There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement.

Iran’s apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth.

That’s not just what they believe. That’s what is actually guiding their policies and their actions.

Just listen to Ayatollah Rafsanjani who said, I quote: “The use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything, however it would only harm the Islamic world.”

Rafsanjani said: “It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”

Not irrational…

And that’s coming from one of the so-called moderates of Iran.

Shockingly, some people have begun to peddle the absurd notion that a nuclear-armed Iran would actually stabilize the Middle East.

Yeah, right…

That’s like saying a nuclear-armed al-Qaeda would usher in an era of universal peace.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I’ve been speaking about the need to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons for over 15 years.

I spoke about it in my first term in office as Prime Minister, and then I spoke about it when I left office. I spoke about it when it was fashionable, and I spoke about it when it wasn’t fashionable.

I speak about it now because the hour is getting late, very late. I speak about it now because the Iranian nuclear calendar doesn’t take time out for anyone or for anything. I speak about it now because when it comes to the survival of my country, it’s not only my right to speak; it’s my duty to speak. And I believe that this is the duty of every responsible leader who wants to preserve world peace.

For nearly a decade, the international community has tried to stop the Iranian nuclear program with diplomacy.

That hasn’t worked.

Iran uses diplomatic negotiations as a means to buy time to advance its nuclear program.

For over seven years, the international community has tried sanctions with Iran. Under the leadership of President Obama, the international community has passed some of the strongest sanctions to date.

I want to thank the governments represented here that have joined in this effort. It’s had an effect. Oil exports have been curbed and the Iranian economy has been hit hard.

It’s had an effect on the economy, but we must face the truth. Sanctions have not stopped Iran’s nuclear program either.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, during the last year alone, Iran has doubled the number of centrifuges in its underground nuclear facility in Qom.

At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs. That’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Red lines don’t lead to war; red lines prevent war.

Look at NATO’s charter: it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. NATO’s red line helped keep the peace in Europe for nearly half a century.

President Kennedy set a red line during the Cuban Missile Crisis. That red line also prevented war and helped preserve the peace for decades.

In fact, it’s the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression.

If the Western powers had drawn clear red lines during the 1930s, I believe they would have stopped Nazi aggression and World War II might have been avoided.

In 1990, if Saddam Hussein had been clearly told that his conquest of Kuwait would cross a red line, the first Gulf War might have been avoided.

Clear red lines have also worked with Iran.

Earlier this year, Iran threatened to close the Straits of Hormouz. The United States drew a clear red line and Iran backed off.

Red lines could be drawn in different parts of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. But to be credible, a red line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program: on Iran’s efforts to enrich uranium. Now let me explain why:

Basically, any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it.

The simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. That is, you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder.

In the case of Iran’s plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium. The fuse is a nuclear detonator.

For Iran, amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse.

For a country like Iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. That requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in very big industrial plants. Those Iranian plants are visible and they’re still vulnerable.

In contrast, Iran could produce the nuclear detonator – the fuse – in a lot less time, maybe under a year, maybe only a few months.

The detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of a classroom. It may be very difficult to find and target that workshop, especially in Iran. That’s a country that’s bigger than France, Germany, Italy and Britain combined.

The same is true for the small facility in which they could assemble a warhead or a nuclear device that could be placed in a container ship. Chances are you won’t find that facility either.

So in fact the only way that you can credibly prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, is to prevent Iran from amassing enough enriched uranium for a bomb.

So, how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? And how close is Iran to getting it?

Let me show you. I brought a diagram for you. Here’s the diagram.

This is a bomb; this is a fuse.
In the case of Iran’s nuclear plans to build a bomb, this bomb has to be filled with enough enriched uranium. And Iran has to go through three stages.

The first stage: they have to enrich enough of low enriched uranium.

The second stage: they have to enrich enough medium enriched uranium.

And the third stage and final stage: they have to enrich enough high enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Where’s Iran? Iran’s completed the first stage. It took them many years, but they completed it and they’re 70% of the way there.

Now they are well into the second stage. By next spring, at most by next summer at current enrichment rates, they will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage.

From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What I told you now is not based on secret information. It’s not based on military intelligence. It’s based on public reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Anybody can read them. They’re online.

So if these are the facts, and they are, where should the red line be drawn?

The red line should be drawn right here…

Before Iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb.

Before Iran gets to a point where it’s a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon.

Each day, that point is getting closer. That’s why I speak today with such a sense of urgency. And that’s why everyone should have a sense of urgency.

Some who claim that even if Iran completes the enrichment process, even if it crosses that red line that I just drew, our intelligence agencies will know when and where Iran will make the fuse, assemble the bomb, and prepare the warhead.

Look, no one appreciates our intelligence agencies more than the Prime Minister of Israel. All these leading intelligence agencies are superb, including ours. They’ve foiled many attacks. They’ve saved many lives.

But they are not foolproof.

For over two years, our intelligence agencies didn’t know that Iran was building a huge nuclear enrichment plant under a mountain.

Do we want to risk the security of the world on the assumption that we would find in time a small workshop in a country half the size of Europe?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The relevant question is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.

The red line must be drawn on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target.

I believe that faced with a clear red line, Iran will back down.

This will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince Iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether.

Two days ago, from this podium, President Obama reiterated that the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran cannot be contained.

I very much appreciate the President’s position as does everyone in my country. We share the goal of stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program. This goal unites the people of Israel. It unites Americans, Democrats and Republicans alike and it is shared by important leaders throughout the world.

What I have said today will help ensure that this common goal is achieved. ​

Israel is in discussions with the United States over this issue, and I am confident that we can chart a path forward together.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The clash between modernity and medievalism need not be a clash between progress and tradition.

The traditions of the Jewish people go back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values and the foundation of our national strength.

At the same time, the Jewish people have always looked towards the future. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights.

We champion these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them.

We heed the words of the Jewish prophets Isaiah, Amos, and Jeremiah to treat all with dignity and compassion, to pursue justice and cherish life and to pray and strive for peace.

These are the timeless values of my people and these are the Jewish people’s greatest gift to mankind.​

Let us commit ourselves today to defend these values so that we can defend our freedom and protect our common civilization.

Thank you.

Lagt i Israel

Kristne i arabiske lande er ikke længere forfulgte. De er nu ved at blive slagtet og drevet ud af deres hjem.

Lagt i Israel

Another rally for Israel

leave a comment »

Jews for Peace har lige demonstreret i Wilshire Boulevard i Los Angeles udenfor “the Federal Building” med support for Israel men med en kritik af CAST LEAD og deres syn på samarbejde og mangel på samme med indbyggerne i Gaza.
Demonstrationen blev mødt af en modgående, der var imod Isr … også var for Israel, men med budskabet om support for regeringens håndtering af CAST LEAD.

De første kom frem med budskabet “We’re here to remember what happened in Gaza a year ago, and we’re here to stand up and say we believe in Jewish values of universal justice”, mens den modgående demonstration havde et andet budskab “The other side is doing their usual thing of finger pointing and telling a one-sided, out-of-context story. We just want to make sure that the facts are clear. Hamas is dedicated to Israel’s destruction.”, “Hamas: Stop Using Gaza as a Launching Pad.”

Der er ikke mange der mener, at et svar CAST LEAD var forkert på baggrund af over 8000 angreb fra mindre og større raketter fra Gaza. Vandende skiller folk, når det handler om responset fra Israel var det rigtige. Men hvad er et korrekt respons i krig og terror?

L A JEWS FOR PEACE var de iranske jøder og amerikanske men også med deltagelse af lokale. En opsigtsvækkende plakat fra modparten siger “NO MORE ROCKETS FROM GAZA / STOP QASSAMS”. Det betyder i min oversættelse: Hvis der ikke kommer angreb eller raketter fra Gaza, kommer der ikke flere CAST LEAD. Nye angreb for Israel kommer kun med en baggrund, nemlig angreb fra Gaza, så de kan selv opretholde fred, hvis de ønsker.

Men det er ikke første gang, at iranere og jøder slår sig sammen. Selv i Danmark, da Ahmadinejad ankom i forbindelse med COP15, var det  EUJS og de iranske FRITIRAN og FREEIRAN, der alle demonstrerede imod Ahmadinejad og hans styre i Iran. Der er mere her om disse organistioner.

HAMAS, der sidder på magten i GAZA har i deres grundlov indført, at det handler om at skabe et kalifat i Israel via Jihad og derudover henviser de i deres lovgivning til “Zions vise protokoller”, så de er ikke alene imod Israel, såmænd også jøderne. Og for dem, der vil have et indblik i HAMAS’ grundlag kan læse gyseren her.

Det er dog ikke usædvanligt i mellemøsten, at det ene land ønsker den andens død, men det løses ved ‘kold fred’. Det er imidlertid vanskeligt, når den ene part – HAMAS – gentagende gange bekriger Israel. Skal Israel lade være med at besvare HAMAS? På den anden side er HAMAS’s budskab ikke så meget anderledes end Sorte September i 1972 med deres München massakre; nemlig at skabe opmærksomhed på en befolkning via terror. Og hvorfor ønsker HAMAS opmærksomhed? Af 2 grunde:

  • At samle kræfter til at indtage Israel på et tidspunkt, der gerne med tiden skal være et kalifat
  • At gør opmærksom på den fattige befolkning, de mener, ikke får byggematerialer udefra.

Desværre på denne jord er fattige befolkninger ikke usædvanlige og verdenssamfundet giver da også Gaza enorme bidrag, men derfor er de stadig utilfredse. Ja det skal man jo være som en regering. Det er dog ens pligt at vise flaget. Men i dette tilfælde er det gennem krig. Måske kom Hamas længere ved at anvende deres ressourcer på samarbejde med andre end modstand mod end overmagt?

Forsyninger til Gaza:

Ifølge det officielle israelske udenrigsministerium får Gaza hver uge konvojer af olie, gas, mad og meget mere. Gaza kan være et af de områder, der får mest hjælp i denne verden.
