On True Marriage Equality

reposted from:

http://www.truemarriageequality.com/

“You will NEVER build a society on it. You will NOT build a nation on it.”

Former Prime Minister of Australia, Paul Keating, on same-sex marriage.

Please do not be intimidated or cowed into thinking you cannot speak up for traditional marriage and for family and for children. You can and you should. There is absolutely nothing wrong with speaking up in the face of this attack on our society’s foundations.

Speak boldly for your children’s sake and your grandchildren’s sake. When future generations see the consequential fruit of destroying traditional marriage and teaching children to accept and try depraved sex acts in school sex-ed classes they will ask: “Why did our parents and grandparents allow this?”

​It is a bad idea. People who enter into homosexual relationships have full equality under Australian law already. They can do what they like. Over 80 pieces of legislation have already been passed to grant full equality to their relationships in the eyes of the law. They are free to enter into what ever sorts of relationships they choose with no discrimination whatsoever. That is up to them and people are generally not too worried about that.

But it is not marriage. Marriage is something very different. Marriage is simply a man and a woman coming together promising to remain faithful to each other at the exclusion of all others, and to build society through having children (if possible) and loving and protecting those children in the structure best designed for doing so.

People are free to behave however they want and reap the consequences of their actions, as applies to all of us, however they are not free to impose gay sex on children, effectively grooming them to become gay or gay activists. Surely not without a fight at least.

They are also not free to donate their blood according to the Red Cross and FDA, because it is deemed at a high risk of being contaminated with diseases which will wreak havoc on our communities. Therefore they should be required to give disclaimers in their campaigns to normalize and promote their unusual, unnatural and unhealthy sexual activity.

Every child needs a Mum and a Dad. A man simply cannot be a mother and a woman just cannot be a father. For the sake of children and our society, marriage deserves to be preserved.

Australians should not even be asked to have to choose to change marriage. It simply is what it is. Those proposing to make the change do not even want to debate the merits of what they propose. They just want to impose it.

They have taken away valuable parliamentary time and resources over many years trying unsuccessfully to change marriage laws. They have had their say. They are the ones now forcing tax-payers to bear the cost of a plebiscite. They should do the honorable thing and concede that they already have equality and for the sake of national unity, for the sake of children, they should abandon their selfish quest. Please Take Action to Defend Marriage, Children, Freedom of Speech and Religion.

​NOTE: For whatever reasons the reality is that the media have locked out the voice for traditional family and marriage. They refuse to run very civilized adverts stating the case for preserving something which has been the norm and a foundation of and source of good society for thousands of years. They are actively trying to silence debate on this issue and silence free speech in Australia. It is not just a debate over marriage it is also, according to an Australian Senator, a political attempt by left-wing Marxist influenced ideologues to secure control of Australia.

The only way Australians will hear the case to defend and preserve marriage and family is if YOU speak up and act. PLEASE do not delay. The anti-traditional marriage movement is gathering pace and they will be putting intense pressure on Australians to secure victory. Once we have lost our freedoms it is very difficult to regain them.

​One of our Facebook posts three days ago achieved 18,000 Likes in 3 days and 59,000+ page views!!! Australians are hungry for the truth. But we do not have the money to reach the masses. Please Donate today to help us reach more Australians through social media with the balanced truth and let them decide as fully informed citizens come voting day. Time is running out.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex “marriage” intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.

This is one of the many weapons targeting the foundations of civilization – by the usual suspects. Do I really have to name them?

The Vaccine War Deepens

Reposted from: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/

To my friends in Australia: the vaccine war deepens

The string of abuses laid on citizens of Australia by their government grows almost week by week.

Now, parental rights to raise children, without interference from the State, is under a new form of attack. This must be resisted.

Schools are bringing doctors on board, as a permanent feature. Young children will be subjected to medical diagnoses and treatment, without consent or approval from parents, even if those parents actively object. The State is stealing the role of guardian.

The Herald Sun reports. Read carefully:

“DOCTORS will have the power to treat students as young as 12 in schools even if parents refuse their consent.”

“GPs will consult at 100 Victoria high schools for up to one day a week as part of a $43.8 million program.”

“Guidelines released on Thursday show that even if a parent ‘expressly states’ that a doctor should not [examine] their child, the GP can if they deem the teen mature enough.”

“’Any student who wants to see the GP will be permitted to make an appointment,’ the policy said.”

“The GP will decide if the young person is mature enough to provide consent to any medical treatment for the prevailing issue.”

A young child “giving consent?” This is supposed to be “informed consent” when facing off with an adult doctor?

The handwriting is on the wall. Multiple vaccines will be given, to “bring children up to State standards.” This whole operation is, in fact, a front for forced vaccination. That’s the goal.

But it doesn’t stop there. The covert plan will eventually, if not sooner, include psychiatric diagnoses of so-called “mental disorders.” ADHD, clinical depression, bipolar, and so on. Followed by toxic drugs. Ritalin, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Lithium. It’s a parade of toxicity.

I have demonstrated, over and over, that NONE of these so-called mental disorders are based on diagnostic lab tests. They’re pseudoscience.

I would be quite willing to show this and debate this with any Australian doctor or bureaucrat. Head to head, live on Skype.

Is that a challenge? You bet.

The whole medical takeover of parental roles in Australia is on the move. This is naked State force. Nothing less.

“Doctors in schools” is a wedge, a first step in the door, a first boot on the face.

The propaganda is: “We doctors know best. We have the science. Parents are ignorant. We must protect the children. Public safety overrides parents raising their own children and making the important decisions.”

Get it? See the picture? The State is ripping away the natural right of parents to raise their own children.

It’s called a Medical Police State.

If you, as a parent, had some random doctor enter your house and demand to vaccinate, diagnose, and drug your children—and IF that doctor weren’t backed up by the State with all its coercive powers—if he were just a lone individual claiming he could do whatever he wanted to, to your children, you would throw him out without a moment’s hesitation.

Therefore, what we’re looking at here is force, that’s all. Not science, not freedom, not rights. Force. That’s the bottom line.

If some lone doctor, without force behind him, walked into your house and said he was going to inject your children with a neurotoxin called aluminum, and a toxin called formaldehyde, and a toxin called Polysorbate 80, and several germs—all standard components of vaccines—you would halt the proceeding immediately and investigate this ominous situation. You’d be crazy not to.

Where does all this stop?

I’ll tell you where. Nowhere. It doesn’t stop. Doctors, acting as agents for the State, are going to sink their hands into your lives deeper and deeper. Give an inch, they take a mile.

This is a war against you, your children, your family, and all families. This is what unchecked government does.

It says it cares, and then it wreaks destruction.

Do not let the long, long night descend.

Confessions Of A Thought Criminal

—————————————————————————————————–

Wikipedia entry on thoughtcrime:

A thoughtcrime is an Orwellian neologism used to describe an illegal thought. The term was popularized in the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, first published in 1949, wherein thoughtcrime is the criminal act of holding unspoken beliefs or doubts that oppose or question Ingsoc, the ruling party. In the book, the government attempts to control not only the speech and actions, but also the thoughts of its subjects. To entertain unacceptable thoughts is known as crimethink in Newspeak, the ideologically purified dialect of the party.[1] Crimestop is a way to avoid crimethink by immediately purging dangerous thoughts from the mind.

Confessions of A Thought Criminal

by Kalle Koala

What do you do of a night when you just can’t fall asleep? Do you toss and turn and count sheep? Do you listen to relaxing music? Do you recite a mantra? Do you review the events of the past day or make plans for the next one?

The other day – just to amuse myself and hopefully ease my transition into sleep – I hit upon the novel idea of reviewing the number and the types of thought and hate crimes I had committed that day from the moment of opening my eyes to the moment of going to bed.

Far from being amusing and relaxing as I hoped it would be this exercise turned out to be a veritable nightmare!  I couldn’t sleep at all because there were just so many of these crimes! I gave up counting.

I have to admit that I was shaken to the core, mortified to realize just what kind of wickedness I am capable of.

Please do not expect me to reveal everything here for some of these thought crimes are highly personal and far too embarrassing to even mention them in polite company! What’s more, a public and detailed confession of my crimethink, expressed in unforgivably rude and aggressive language, could in itself be deemed to constitute a thought and hate crime as there is the possibility of offending the sensibilities of all those tender little souls out there that might chance upon it. Just learning that somebody has …. unkind  thoughts about them could do these dear people irreparable harm.

I am utterly ashamed of my depravity. And overwhelmed, no! crushed! – by a sense of guilt. The only way to atone for my wrong-doing – well, make that wrong-thinking! – is to confess, turn myself in to the thought police and accept the punishment. I throw myself upon the mercy of the kind reader and can only hope that you can forgive me.  So let me confess some of my crimethink.

For example:

In a conversation with friends I referred to Jews, not just once, but several times, as parasites and I used the highly inflammatory expression kike. Shocking, isn’t it?

I laughed about the dangerously childish antics of those retards in Washington and Berlin and Tel Aviv – the likes of Trump and Merkel and Nutter…   Nutter…    yes, that’s it! Nutteryahu. These nitwits seriously believe they are a match for true statesmen of, for example, Hitler’s and Putin’s intellectual and moral stature.

I referred to the incumbent German Chancellor as a nation-wrecker and as ‘Merkel Das Ferkel” (Ferkel is the German word for piglet). Actually, I thought she is a fully-grown … but that doesn’t rhyme so Ferkel it is.

In another conversation I described supporters of the LGBT agenda as perverts, applying the pejorative designation poofters and faggots to them. I also used the denigrating term nigger three times. What depravity!

But the worst of all that crimethinking was this: I was watching an old German movie set in a pre-WW2 Germany that had a Chancellor named Adolf …. I forgot the name, sorry ! but I remember that he was an honest man and much loved by his people quite unlike the crop of despicable professional snout-in-the-trough politicians we have these days!

As I was watching I became rather sentimental and emotional and I felt nostalgia for and pride in a time and a world long-gone – mind you, a time and a world which I haven’t even personally experienced as I was born after the war. A time and a world I wish I could have lived in rather than in the cesspool the world is now!

A time when the country wasn’t overrun by niggers and Third World trash. A time when men were men – not pretty ladyboys! When women were true women – not such hideous critters like this one:

I thought wistfully of a time when marriage was considered a sacred bond between a real man  and a real woman both for love and for the raising of children – not a sick form of mix-and-match sex entertainment.

A time when a woman could walk alone after dark without being accosted, molested or raped by niggers and/or Muslim thugs. A time when sexual offences against children and women were harshly punished instead of being whitewashed and made excuses for by the Talmud-and-Sharia inspired sewer ethics of modern Western courts.

A time when policemen were more honest and for the most part were indeed what they claimed to be : “Die Polizei – Dein Freund Und Helfer!” (Police – Your Friend And Helper!).

That was then!                                                     This is now!

A time when children could play “Cowboys and Indians” in the school yard and could pretend to shoot one another without fear of being dragged to the principal to be reprimanded for … for what actually? For being children?

A time when a child could enjoy a ham sandwich and didn’t have Jewish or Muslim classmates whose kosher or halal sensitivities had to be respected. Just think of it: those poor little souls could be damaged for life watching somebody eat pork! Can’t have that in this brave new world.

A time when you did not have to profusely apologize to every nigger for being a white man or a white woman.

A world where you could be a German without having to kowtow to every kike, ask his forgiveness for a crime which neither you personally nor your people committed. A world where you didn’t have to pay him and this genocidal Rothschild fiefdom aka Israel compensation for the damage that HE, I repeat that, HE and his ilk caused you and your people.

A time and a world where you did not have to be ashamed of being German, where in fact you could be proud of your people’s contribution to Western civilization: in architecture and the arts, in science and technology, in philosophy and …. well, you name it and you will find Germans, not kikes, in the forefront.

In brief: a world where you could love your people, its language and culture, where you could be proud of its history, where you could look forward to a bright future, a world where you didn’t have to debase yourself and genuflect before those that are not fit to hold a candle to you.

“Although I am a Koala I am at heart a German and I am proud of it!”

Such were my thoughts then! Oh, the shame, the shame! I humbly apologize now to everybody I may have offended and humiliated: I am truly sorry!

But I really do not want to wallow in regret and remorse. That’s not productive. What is needed is a change of attitude. Therefore I have decided to re-invent myself. I have resolved to turn away from thought crime.

I will never ever again think for myself but always faithfully believe what the government and the mainstream media tell me (mental note to myself: must get myself a TV set!). From now on it’s the straight and narrow for me – as laid down by the Powers That Be. They only want what’s best for us, they do! Never again will I question them!

“I want Big Brother to be proud of me! Yes! Really!”

I used to think that there is a cabal of rich and powerful men behind our governments conspiring to usher in a so-called New World Order, really nothing more than a euphemism for “enslavement of mankind”. But I have seen the light and know better now! True, there are inexplicably weird things going on in the world and I don’t blame you for being suspicious – but believe me it’s all just coincidence and nothing to worry about. And Jews have absolutely nothing at all to do with any of this.

As I surfed the Internet last night I came across many a blog that brought me face to face with the wrong things I used to believe.

There are, for example, activists – backed up by misguided scientists – that deny the plainly obvious truth of disastrous climate change and would have us believe that fluoride and vaccination and chemtrails and GMO products are bad for us. Can you believe such pigheadedness?

The suffering of the people of Afghanistan and Iraq, of Libya and Syria, of Yemen and the Ukraine and so many others is, as I now understand, entirely self-inflicted. If they would only whole-heartedly embrace the high ideals of the Western world – you know, freedom and justice, democracy and capitalism, globalism and cultural marxism and all of the other …isms – we wouldn’t have to kill them and they would be as free and happy and as rich as we in the West are.

I used to think and speak ill of Jews but I understand now that Jews are and have always been the innocent victims of those irrational haters known as anti-Semites. There has never been in history a people that suffered as much as the Jews did. The holocaust during WW2 has been referred to as “The darkest hour in human history” and rightly so.

Many tribes and nations have been hated and persecuted and viciously slaughtered but how – pray tell – do the paltry millions upon millions of Russians murdered during the Bolshevik Revolution and the paltry millions upon millions of Germans killed during and after WW2 compare to the humongous number of 250000 to 300000 Jews that died in concentration camps of disease and malnutrition – the unfortunate, unforeseeable and wholly unintended consequence of the war?

One of the new-fangled fads out there is the belief in a Flat Earth. Flat Earth? Are they serious? Scientists tell me that the Earth is a spinning globe. All I need to do is to look through a fish-eye lens. That is all the proof  I need that Flat Earthers are crazy because I can see the curvature! And after a few beers I can really feel the Earth spinning on its axis.

And how about this then: some people claim that NASA lied about the moon landing. We never went there? Oh yeah? Perhaps you should look at the picture below:

On the left is Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit – now kept in a museum. On the right is the photo of his footprint on the moon. It is self-evident that the two do not match! As far as I am concerned that’s irrefutable proof that we were indeed on the moon!!!

The list of thoughtcrimes is endless. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. You can see by now that I am really a reformed koala.

I assure you: Nobody and nothing will ever destroy my new-found faith in the Powers That Be!

I Am A True Believer Now! A Born-Again Moron!  Hallelujah!

Comment by Bernard Weckmann:

I leave it to the reader to decide whether Kalle’s confession is to be taken serious. I have known him long enough to have my doubts. He is a bit of a rascal with a rather twisted sense of humour and a sharp tongue. He is given to hyperbole and fibs and prone to creating mischief. I have the feeling that he will relapse. So take it all with a grain of salt.

To All Gender-Confused Idiots

Article reposted from: http://www.californiafamily.org/

Last month, Canada passed a law that threatens anyone refusing to use transgender pronouns with fines and jail time. Not to be outdone, a state senator from San Francisco has a similar proposal, SB 219, here in California nearing final approval that is getting almost no attention.

Greg Burt, with the California Family Council, testified against SB 219 last Tuesday, a bill that will inflict fines and jail time on any long-term care employee who refuses to use transgender pronouns. Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1000, with a jail term of up to a year.

“How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others,” Burt asked members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee during his testimony. “Compelled speech is not free speech. Can the government compel a newspaper to use certain pronouns that aren’t even in the dictionary? Of course not, or is that coming next?”

According to the text of SB 219, titled the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights, “it shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to….  willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”

According to the bill text, the punishment for violators is spelled out in the California Health and Safety Code provisions under Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Chapter 3.2. It reads, “1569.40.  (a)  Any person who violates this chapter, or who willfully or repeatedly violates any rule or regulation adopted under this chapter, is guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000), by imprisonment in the county jail for a period not to exceed one year, or by both the fine and imprisonment.”

SB 219 also mandate bathrooms and rooming situations be designated by gender identity and not biological sex. There are no exemptions for long term care facility run by religious institutions who integrate their beliefs about gender into their policies and practices.

“Those proposing this bill are saying, ‘If you disagree with me about my view of gender, you are discriminating against me,’” Burt testified. “This is not tolerance. This is not love. This is not mutual respect… True tolerance, tolerates people with different views.  We need to treat each other with respect, but respect is a two-way street. It is not respectful to threaten people with punishment for having sincerely held beliefs that differ from your own.”

Senator Wiener responded during the hearing to this critique, saying that his bill was only reinforcing the civil rights laws that protect LGBT individuals from discrimination. “The argument that religious views can create an exemption for civil rights laws or complying with civil rights laws is a highly radical notion,” Wiener told committee members. “Everyone is entitled to their religious view, but when you enter the public space; when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law.”

The Bill passed the Assembly Judiciary Committee with no one voting against it. Voting yes were Assembly members: Chau, Chiu, Cristina Garcia, Holden, Kalra, Maienschein, Reyes, Mark Stone, Ting. Deciding not to vote at all were Assembly members Kiley and Cunningham.

The bill author is Senator Scott Wiener and the bill sponsor is Equality California. For more information about this bill click here.

Comment by Bernard Weckmann.

No doubt my own country, Australia, ever the licker of boots and kisser of foreign arse, will soon consider similar legislation. So, all you gender-confused morons out there – whether you are a he or a she – take note: I will continue to refer to you according to your biological nature.

And I will not share bathroom facilities with you!.

You are free to think of yourself as …. well, whatever you want. But you are NOT free to impose your  twisted views on me or anybody else for that matter.

And my right to free speech takes precedence over your petulant demands to castrate the English language.

If you plan on taking me to court on a so-called hate crime charge better read my article on the law first. Could save you grief!

Got it????

The creature below may look like a woman and have a woman’s name but it’s nothing more than a man in drag, castrated and surgically altered! I’ll be damned if I accord him the honour of treating him as a woman.

Ladies and Gentlemen! May I present to you: MISTER  Caitlyn Jenner!

“Yeah!!!”

Vale Ernst Zundel

Here is the link to a beautiful tribute to Ernst Zundel, a man who had more honour in his little finger than this entire Middle Eastern tribe known as Jewry has had in its entire millenia-spanning history.

 Vale Ernst Zundel

———————————————————————————————————-

Text below is an excerpt from the above-mentioned newsletter published by the Adelaide Institute.

It deals with an article by Mark Bonokoski, a Toronto Sun columnist. This weasel passing himself off as a human being is doing exactly what he falsely accuses Ernst Zundel of – preaching hatred! – and he expresses regret that Zundel did not die in agony!!! What a fine sentiment! And so quintessentially Jewish!

—————————————–quote—————————————–

As historical footnotes go, one of my proudest contributions was the exposing of Ernst Zundel as a neo-Nazi.

From that point onward, the secret world of this notorious Toronto-based anti-Semite began to unravel, leading to years in court fighting extradition as a security risk, and finally his deportation to a German jail where he served time for inciting racial hatred and for being a Holocaust denier, a criminal offence in Germany.

It has been learned, through a posting by his estranged wife, that Zundel — odious to the core — died of a heart attack Saturday at age 78 at his home in Germany’s Black Forest where he lived after his release from   prison   in   2010   following   five   years   of incarceration.

In the end, he had been deported from both the United States and Canada, and was wanted by no one. Germany had no choice. Zundel was one of theirs.

It began for me in 1978 when a TV mini-series on the Holocaust saw the sudden appearance of Ernst Zundel being quoted in all the media as a legitimate and seemingly benign spokesman for a group called Concerned  Parents  of  German  Descent,  who  argued that the Second World War was long over, and that Germans were being tarnished yet again by the sins of their forefathers.

—————————————–endquote—————————————–

Text of my email to Mark Bonokoski: markbonokoski@gmail.com

Dear Mark,

Regarding your disgusting article on Ernst Zundel: your diatribe reveals to me a mind unhinged by vindictiveness and malevolence. You urgently need to see a psychiatrist because you are – as your article clearly proves – not of sound mind!

Your knowledge of history is, to put it mildly, woefully inadequate, your sense of reality is seriously warped and your moral compass seems to be entirely missing.  My guess is you are a psychopath.

Perhaps, just perhaps, there is help for you – although I am not holding my breath!

Now let’s be clear on this: if somebody is odious it is you. You and your ilk couldn’t have held a candle to Ernst, not even if your miserable lives had depended on it!

What’s more: you are probably not bright enough to understand that so-called anti-Semitism is but  a sane and self-respecting non-Jew’s fully justified self-defence against the megalomaniacal Jewish supremacist ideology and against the irrational genocidal hatred of Gentiles harboured by Jews and which they act out every so often, to wit:

There was, for instance, the savagery of the Jewish-led Bolsheviks during and after the so-called “Russian Revolution” and there were the real holocausts inflicted on Germany and on Japan by the Jew’s attack dogs, the USA, the USSR and the UK. The latest example of Jewish wickedness and insanity is the on-going ethnic cleansing of Palestine carried out by that abomination calling itself Israel. These are facts!

Jews will deny all of that, no doubt, and I wouldn’t expect anything else! They cannot allow mere facts and the truth to get in the way of profitable sob stories such as their countless fake holocaust narratives.

You can rail and rant and spit poison all you want but the peoples of the world are waking up and Jewish lies are not getting traction any more. Only the intellectually challenged still believe the Jew’s holocaust fairy tale and only the morally bankrupt defend Jewish crimes.

That’s why Jews are so desperate to enact their lunatic hate-crime legislation all over the world. Bullying and lies and smear campaigns – that’s the Jewish way! If that fails drag the goyim into a kangaroo court and throw them into jail. Proof of wrong-doing? Piffle! Isn’t it enough of a crime to cause Jews to feel “offended and humiliated”?

Oh, how Jews must yearn for the glorious days when the Noahide Laws will be the Law of the Land – you know: Off with their heads!

There is a hauntingly beautiful song in the movie “The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey” called “Song of the Lonely Mountain” and Jews would be well-advised to ponder the refrain and its implications:

“Some folk we never forget – Some kind we never forgive!”

Vengeful we are not! But we will not forget and we will have JUSTICE! So start the weeping and the gnashing of teeth! For we are coming for you! You have been warned!

Have a nice day, Mark! And for God’s sake, man! Seek help!

Palestine Was Not Terra Nullius!

Article reposted from: https://buelahman.wordpress.com/

PIERCING ONE OF JUDAISM’S BIG LIES

Here is a worthwhile photoessay that pierces yet another Jewish fable (Titus 1:14):

Lawrence of Cyberia: Tell Me Again, Who Made The Desert Bloom?

http://lawrenceofcyberia.blogs.com/news/2010/03/palestinians-made-the-desert-bloom.html

“In order to create an alleged justification for the crime of genocide they have committed against the Palestinian Arabs, the Zionists have tried to convince the world that Palestine was practically uninhabited, ‘A Land Without People For a People Without a Land.’ They created and propagated the myths that the Palestinian Arabs were nomads or semi-nomads without a culture and a civilization, that the Palestinians had neither a national identity nor existence, that the Palestinians lacked an economic structure and roots in the land.” The Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem, edited by Dr. Issa Nakhleh, Continental Books, P.O. Box 756, Grand Central Station, New York, NY 10163-0756, p. 33. available at http://www.palestine-encyclopedia.com/

“…In 1882, the Jewish population of Palestine was about 24,000. In 1914, the entire population of Palestine was estimated at 634,133 Muslim and Christian Arabs and 55,413 Jews. In 1920, after the British mandate, the official census showed the Arab population, both Muslim and Christian, at nearly 600,000, still greatly exceeding the Jews, who numbered 66,574. Until 1948 the Arab population continued to exceed the Jewish by roughly 2:1. Ibid., p.25.

“… the last official British census in 1931 found Arabs in Jerusalem outnumbered Jews 2:1 with surrounding areas averaging 98% Arab! The Ad Hoc Committee on the Palestinian Question in the United Nations found in 1948 that, except for Haifa, ‘the Arabs have a clear majority over the Jews.’ Ibid., p. 26.

“So much for the Israeli… claim that for centuries Jews in Jerusalem and surrounding areas have outnumbered a tiny Arab population!

“During World War I, Arabs fought with the Allies against the Turks in hope of acquiring national independence. After the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the people of Palestine were considered by the League of Nations a ‘provisionally independent nation” very close to sovereignty. By 1947 Palestinian Arabs played a predominant role in government under the British. “The total number of government officials was 44,688 persons, of whom 4,314 were British, 30,178 Arabs, 9,276 Jews, and 920 others.’ Ibid., p. 28. Arabs also vastly outnumbered Jews in municipal councils and leadership in hundreds of primarily Arab towns and cities throughout Palestine.

“The land of Palestine had been a breadbasket of agricultural plenty going back to the original inhabitants, the Canaanites and later Philistines (for whom Palestine is named). Enjoying a climate similar to California’s, the Old Testament description was a “land that flows with milk and honey.” Certainly, much of Palestine in recent centuries had been over-grazed, particularly the mountainous hill country of Judea surrounding Jerusalem. Such barrenness caused visitor Mark Twain to describe it as barren, with hardly an Arab to be seen. Yet, at nearly the same time, “Lawrence Oliphant, who visited Palestine in 1887, wrote that Palestine’s Valley of Esdraelon was ‘a huge green lake of waving wheat, with its village-crowned mounds rising from it like islands; and it presents one of the most striking pictures of luxurious fertility which it is possible to conceive.’” Ibid., p. 33.  Numerous pre-20th century accounts, recounted in the Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem, describe it as a veritable cornucopia of every kind of agricultural produce, with excess exported by the Palestinians even to the nations of Europe.

The Encyclopedia confirms that before 1948

“these Arab towns and villages were not merely place names on a map. They were developed communities containing farms, factories, stores and schools, with an infrastructure of doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, merchants, mechanics, industrialists, workers, and farmers which would be the envy of any developing country today…Before 1948 they resided in 12 cities, 8 major towns, and 830 small towns and villages. Arab homes in the cities were either luxurious stone villas with beautiful gardens, or apartments with 2-5 bedrooms. These residences were well-furnished with modern furniture and household goods. No Arab home of the middle and upper classes contained less than eight valuable Persian carpets. All these homes and their furnishings were usurped by Israel.” Ibid. p. 34.

General Moshe Dayan tells the truth:

“We came to this country which was already populated by Arabs, and we are establishing a Hebrew, that is, a Jewish state here. Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you, because these geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahalal arose in the place of Mahalul; Gevat in the place of Jibta; Sarid in the place of Haneifa and Kefar Yehoshua in the place of Tellshaman. There is not one place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.” Ibid., p. 34.

“After 1948, Israel took over 12 cities and large towns and 526 small towns and villages. They bulldozed the towns and villages, building new towns with Jewish names. Ibid., “INDEX OF CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN PALESTINE,” p. 347.

“The Encyclopedia extensively documents from British records that, far from Palestinians depending on Jewish prosperity, the Zionists were permeated with Marxist/collectivist values, resulting in eventual failure of the “kibbutz” experiment. Fairly new to Mideast agriculture, they were largely inefficient, dependent upon regular massive infusion of Western Jewish capital. Despite a general Israeli policy of boycott of Palestinian goods and services, the Palestinians, with a rapidly growing population in 1948 of 1,444,274, were both politically, socially, and economically racing toward UN-sponsored nationhood in 1948.

“Such prosperity came to an abrupt, horrific end after the Deir Yassin massacre by Zionist Irgun terrorists on April 9-10, 1948 and many subsequent Jewish outrages and atrocities, panicking 800,000 Palestinians into flight. “In 1948 the Zionists seized 90% of Arab-owned citrus groves, packaging and storage facilities, as well as that year’s crops, looting the prosperous Arab citrus growers, making them destitute refugees.” The same was true of all aspects of Palestinian industry, including olive oil, weaving, textile, tobacco, leather, dairy, wheat, fishing, and construction. In reality, confiscation of Palestinian resources largely constituted the “miracle” of Israel’s sudden abundant agriculture, of which the new state began boasting soon after expulsion of the Palestinians. This delighted evangelicals worldwide who saw it as stunning fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, making the “desert blossom as the rose.” In reality, Israel now possessed thousands of acres of citrus, olives, wheat, etc. seized from the foremost agriculturists of the Middle East, Palestinian orchardists and farmers. The Encyclopedia: “The economic achievements of Israel today are built totally on the capital base of lands, property, and possessions usurped from the Palestinian Arabs.” Ibid., p. 34.

Hiding Behind Civilians

In the early part of the current Israeli campaign in Lebanon, we heard macho noises indicating that the IDF would be relying on the “kill ’em all let God decide” school of military tactics in its fight against Hizbullah. Israeli Minister of Justice, Haim Ramon, declared on 27 July that: “All those now in south Lebanon are terrorists who are related in some way to Hezbollah”. This meant basically tough luck to those thousands of south Lebanese civilians too poor to leave, or too sick, or with nowhere to go, or stranded because the IAF had destroyed their roads and bridges, or scared to leave in case they met the same fate as the convoy from Marwaheen that followed the IDF’s instructions to flee north only to get killed by the IDF as they fled. Apparently they were all fair game.

It’s all very well being gung ho and going into battle proclaiming:

“Over here, everybody is the army… Everybody is Hezbollah. There’s no kids, women, nothing.”
or
“We’re going to shoot anything we see.”

But it’s kind of embarassing when the dust settles, and it turns out that large numbers of those “Hizbullah operatives” you have been killing turn out to be real-life flesh-and-blood women and children after all. Because then you find yourself having to back-track rapidly, and manufacture excuses why all those hundreds of civilian deaths really aren’t your fault. The first thing you can try is the “blame the victims” strategy: after all, they knew it was a war zone, so why didn’t the stupid saps get out? (And what a strange new chapter in Zionist logic that is. In 1948 and 1967, they told us that refugees who flee a war zone deserve to lose their homes. In 2006, refugees who fail to flee a war zone apparently deserve to die).

The other argument you can use is to claim that really you were aiming for military targets, but killed the civilians because the military targets were hiding among them. We’ve heard a lot of claims from Israel’s apologists in the last few weeks, blaming Hizbullah for using civilians as human shields, even though to seasoned observers on the ground that accusation doesn’t hold much water. Peter Bouckaert, an experienced researcher for Human Rights Watch, reported from Tyre in south Lebanon:

I’ve documented civilian deaths from bombing campaigns in Kosovo and Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq. But these usually occur when there is some indication of military targeting: high-ranking members of Saddam Hussein’s regime present in a house just before it is hit, for example, or an attack against militants that causes the collateral deaths of many civilians.

In Lebanon, it’s a different scene. Time after time, Israel has hit civilian homes and cars in the southern border zone, killing dozens of people with no evidence of any military objective.

And via jews san frontieres, reporter Mitch Prothero – formerly the UPI bureau chief in Baghdad, now based in Beirut – pointed out that hiding among civilians is very much at odds with Hizbullah’s usual modus operandi:

Throughout this now 16-day-old war, Israeli planes high above civilian areas make decisions on what to bomb. They send huge bombs capable of killing things for hundreds of meters around those targets to destroy them, and then blame the inevitable civilian deaths — the Lebanese government says 600 civilians have been killed so far — on “terrorists” who callously use the civilian infrastructure for protection.

But this claim is almost always false. My own reporting and that of other journalists reveals that in fact Hezbollah fighters — as opposed to the much more numerous Hezbollah political members, and the vastly more numerous Hezbollah sympathizers — avoid civilians like the plague. Much smarter and better trained than the PLO and Hamas fighters, they know that if they mingle with civilians, they will sooner or later be betrayed by collaborators — as so many Palestinian militants have been.

Whether or not it is true of Hizbullah, it cannot be denied that there really is a long-standing and well-documented tradition of soldiers in the region using civilians as human shields.

Israel’s Supreme Court on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2005, banned the military’s practice of using Palestinian civilians as ‘human shields’ in arrest raids, saying it violates international law. The court ruled in response to petitions by human rights groups. (AP/Nasser Ishtayeh)
