I Stand With Israel

From a 2002 artical by Oriana Fallaci:

I find it shameful that in Italy there should be a procession of individuals dressed as suicide bombers who spew vile abuse at Israel, hold up photographs of Israeli leaders on whose foreheads they have drawn the swastika, incite people to hate the Jews. And who, in order to see Jews once again in the extermination camps, in the gas chambers, in the ovens of Dachau and Mauthausen and Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen et cetera, would sell their own mother to a harem.

I find it shameful that the Catholic Church should permit a bishop, one with lodgings in the Vatican no less, a saintly man who was found in Jerusalem with an arsenal of arms and explosives hidden in the secret compartments of his sacred Mercedes, to participate in that procession and plant himself in front of a microphone to thank in the name of God the suicide bombers who massacre the Jews in pizzerias and supermarkets. To call them "martyrs who go to their deaths as to a party."

I find it shameful that in France, the France of Liberty-Equality-Fraternity, they burn synagogues, terrorize Jews, profane their cemeteries. I find it shameful that the youth of Holland and Germany and Denmark flaunt the kaffiah just as Mussolini's avant garde used to flaunt the club and the fascist badge.

I find it shameful that in nearly all the universities of Europe Palestinian students sponsor and nurture anti-Semitism. That in Sweden they asked that the Nobel Peace Prize given to Shimon Peres in 1994 be taken back and conferred on the dove with the olive branch in his mouth, that is on Arafat. I find it shameful that the distinguished members of the Committee, a Committee that (it would appear) rewards political color rather than merit, should take this request into consideration and even respond to it. In hell the Nobel Prize honors he who does not receive it.

Go read the whole thing here.
I found this before at Dr. Sanity and it is worth putting up again

A tip 'O The GM Derby to Dr. Sanity who's article "THE EVOLULTIONARY DEAD-END OF ISLAM" is a terrific read. Go read it all.

UPDATE: Shrinkwrapped (one of my very favorites) has an excellent essay up on "The Limits of Intelligence" including some very informative links. Go Read it all.

I stand with Israel also.

I wonder if the Pope's being German has anythng to do with their stance.

About as much as the Pope being Polish at the time the Fallaci article was written...

Islamists are certainly not going to take marching orders from the Catholic Church, which after all they would like nothing better than to destroy in order to restablish the Caliphate.

It's one thing to disagree with specific policies or actions of the Catholic Church (or their representatives), as Fallaci did in her article. However, to make a snide attack on the Pope's nationality, coupled with a loathsome insinuation of Nazi sympathies as you did here, is out of line. You would do well to read a biography of Pope John Paul II.

If you want to show your support for Israel, shoot straight. You do Israel no favor with hateful comments such as this.

I saw a guy sporting an Israeli soccer jersey yesterday, it was a breath of fresh air.
