A dark irony:
The Palestinians have a totalitarian governmental structure.
Criticism of its leadership (i.e. Arafat) is forbidden, and there is no free press.
Dissenters may be arrested or subject to violence.
The press propagates classic hatred of Jews, including racial stereotypes, Holocaust denial, and racist anti-Jewish rhetoric reminiscent of the Nazi era.
The school system teaches even the youngest children to hate not only Israel but the Jewish people, and to believe that Jews are the reason for the evils of all humanity.
Shedding the blood of defenseless civilians, like the grandfather of the birthday girl in Hadera or the five-year-old girl in Adora shot in her mother's arms, is considered a mark of honor and an occasion for celebration.
Even little children are taught to honor and admire suicide bombers, and Palestinian society thinks it praiseworthy to use its own children as human bombs.
And as we have seen, the Palestinian leadership itself makes no real secret of its rejection of peace and its desire to annihilate the State of Israel. It even has a plan for this, its own "final solution," the "Phased Plan," which it has never renounced and which even very recently it has reaffirmed to its people.
And people say the JEWS are acting like Nazis!
Here are Arafat's first words after his release from confinement in his compound in Ramallah, uttered the very day I am writing this:
"It's an ugly crime," Arafat said about a fire that had broken out in the Church of the Nativity and that all available evidence suggests was set by the Palestinians hiding inside, adding: "I call on the international community to take immediate measures in the face of this horrendous crime. Those terrorists, Nazis and racists, how can we tolerate them after committing this crime? I don't care if this room I'm sitting in blows up. What concerns me is what is happening at the Church of the Nativity. This is a crime that cannot be forgiven."(1)
So the Israelis are Nazis because the Palestinians set fire to a building. What then are the Palestinians, who slaughter old people and children with their nail-packed bombs? Still the world listens to Arafat and considers him a partner for peace. He won the Nobel Peace Prize, didn't he?
It is also an incredible coincidence that the fire in the Church of the Nativity broke out on the very day of Arafat's release.
Those who continue to compare Israel with Nazis should consider the following column(2) that appeared very recently in the Egyptian government daily Al-Akhbar (and remember that the Egyptian press prints only what its government approves). After reading this, decide who today carries the legacy of Hitler. (Note: this column is by no means exceptional. Consult http://memri.org/antisemitism.html for a very lengthy sampling of officially sanctioned Arab anti-Semitism. Much of what has appeared in the Arab press has been inspired by Nazi sources.)
ACCURSED FOREVER AND EVER
By Fatma Abdallah Mahmoud
Al-Akhbar, April 29, 2002
They are accursed in heaven and on earth. They are accursed from the day the human race was created and from the day their mothers bore them. They are accursed also because they murdered the Prophets. They murdered the Prophet John the Baptist and served up his head on a golden platter to the singer and dancer Salome. Allah also cursed them with a thousand curses when they argued with and resisted his words of truth, deceived the Prophet Moses, and worshiped the golden calf that they created with their own hands!!
These accursed ones are a catastrophe for the human race. They are the virus of the generation, doomed to a life of humiliation and wretchedness until Judgment Day. They are also accursed because they repeatedly tried to murder the Prophet Muhammad. They threw a stone at him, but missed. Another time, they tried to mix poison in his food, but providence saved him from their treachery and their crimes. Allah cursed them when they carried out the criminal massacre of the peaceful Palestinians in Sabra and Shatilla. [Note: Those massacres were committed not by Jews but by Lebanese Christians.]
They are accursed, they, their fathers, and their forefathers... until Judgment Day, because they burst into Al-Aqsa Mosque with their defiled, filthy feet and violated its sanctity.
Finally, they are accursed, fundamentally, because they are the plague of the generation and the bacterium of all time. Their history always was and always will be stained with treachery, falseness, and lying. Historical documents prove it.
Thus, the Jews are accursed - the Jews of our time, those who preceded them and those who will come after them, if any Jews come after them.
With regard to the fraud of the Holocaust... Many French studies have proven that this is no more than a fabrication, a lie, and a fraud!! That is, it is a 'scenario' the plot of which was carefully tailored, using several faked photos completely unconnected to the truth. Yes, it is a film, no more and no less. Hitler himself, whom they accuse of Nazism, is in my eyes no more than a modest 'pupil' in the world of murder and bloodshed. He is completely innocent of the charge of frying them in the hell of his false Holocaust!!
The entire matter, as many French and British scientists and researchers have proven, is nothing more than a huge Israeli plot aimed at extorting the German government in particular and the European countries in general. But I, personally and in light of this imaginary tale, complain to Hitler, even saying to him from the bottom of my heart, "If only you had done it, brother, if only it had really happened, so that the world could sigh in relief [without] their evil and sin."
Since their birth, the Jews [have amassed] hatred and hostility towards Islam and the Muslims. They have always laid traps for the Muslims, woven conspiracies and crimes against them, and been biased in favor of their enemies and occupiers...
They always try to warp and distort everything fair and beautiful!! Basically, they are a model of moral ugliness, debasement, and degradation. If only Allah would curse them more and more, to the end of all generations. Amen.
The following excerpt from an interview with a three-year-old girl named Basmallah that was broadcast on Saudi TV in June, 2002 encapsulates the depth of anti-Jewish hatred in the Arab world and the poisoning of the younger generation:(3)
Anchor: Basmallah, are you familiar with the Jews?
Anchor: Do you like them?
Anchor: Why don't you like them?
Basmallah: Because . . .
Anchor: Because they are what?
Basmallah: They're apes and pigs.
Anchor: Because they are apes and pigs. Who said they are so?
Basmallah: Our God.
Anchor: Where did he say this?
Basmallah: In the Koran.
Even little Arab children learn that Jews are subhuman and thus deserving of extermination. The Arabs are using the very same tactics the Nazis used to demonize the Jewish people. And yet the Jews, not the Arabs, are now tagged with the Nazi label. We need to understand why.
