Rutgers Professor Insists Israel ‘Harvests’ Terrorist Organs

Monday, March 21st, 2016

A Rutgers University associate professor of women’s and gender studies claims Israel is stealing organs from the bodies of Arab terrorists — and she’s threatening to sue anyone who publishes a recording of the lecture at Vassar College in which she made the claim.

Professor Jasbir Puar’s February 3 lecture “was taped without my permission or that of the people who had invited me,” she said. Nevertheless, she slammed a “current Zionist strategy” of what she called “silencing and intimidation tactics” aimed at stifling the “exercise of free speech and academic freedom.”

Moreover, Puar recently canceled a scheduled lecture at Fordham University on the “biopolitics of debility in Gaza” – because the administration insisted on recording the talk and making it publicly available, according to The Tower.

For some odd reason she appears unwilling to see that her unwillingness to share her words with the rest of the world is if anything, a much greater self-censorship – one that raises deep suspicions about the legality of what she said.

In a column written in Jadaliyya, (produced by the Arab Studies Institute, ASI) Puar writes about her Feb. 3 lecture, which she said was delivered to a “welcoming and enthusiastic audience.” ASI has received funding from the Social Science Research Council, and the Open Society Institute, supported by George Soros.

The Jadaliyya publication combines local knowledge, scholarship and advocacy aimed at audiences primarily in the United States and the Middle East. The site currently publishes posts both in Arabic, French, English, and Turkish.

“The fraught history of organ mining practices from both IDF soldiers and Palestinian bodies during the 1990s is well documented. During the second intifada, Palestinian bodies were held at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine for prolonged periods without explanation. Even mainstream Israeli press such as Ha’aretz have reported on the collecting of illegally obtained organs at Abu Kabir,” Puar wrote.

“In my lecture, I made clear that I was not making any empirical claims about current organ mining. Rather, I was conveying a small part of the sheer terror of life in the West Bank since the uprising began in October 2015. I can only surmise that the charges of anti-Semitism and blood libel leveled against me were intended to discredit scholarship about the deleterious effects of the occupation on Palestinian daily life.

“It is as if those engaged in trying to smear me believe that Palestinians have no right to legitimate and very human emotions of grief, anguish, and historical trauma.

“Further, the manufactured controversy surrounding my talk was no doubt intended to derail the momentum of the Vassar BDS resolution, spearheaded by Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace. In the wake of this diversion, the Vassar administration threatened to withhold student activity fees from the Vassar Student Association if they voted to pass the BDS resolution—which they passed despite this threat.”

“The talk was taped without my permission or that of the people who had invited me, and the transcript was disseminated to right wing media, inciting hateful responses,” she complained.

“They are desperate to contain the popular movements of students, many of them Jewish Americans, galvanizing around BDS,” she claimed.

DM Ya’alon Says Israel is Prepared for Escalation in Terror Attacks

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee at a meeting on Monday that the IDF is prepared to deal with an escalation in the current wave of terror.

“We haven’t seen any changes in the wave of terrorism,” Ya’alon said in remarks at the opening of the meeting. “It is mostly attacks by individuals. [But] the wave of terror is not subsiding, nor is it being curbed in any way.” He added that the IDF is prepared for an escalation in attacks.

Ya’alon repeated the remarks later in the day when visiting the IDF Induction Center at Tel Hashomer to mark the November draft, noting that there is “hardly a day without a terror attack.”

He went even farther at this briefing, telling reporters that he hoped “the Palestinian Authority gets a grip on itself.” The Defense Minister said he also hoped the PA would go beyond its recent steps of “controlling rioting on the ground, and start condemning the attacks, and cease the blood libels according to which we allegedly are executing those we kill with a knife in their hands, and [instead] they claim we plant the knife afterwards.”

Ya’alon underlined his concern about the PA government’s incitement, and support for Arab media incitement to carry out terror attacks. That incitement, he said, is continuing despite condemnation by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and others.

“I hope they start condemning these attacks. It threatens [the PA] and the survivability of the [Palestinian] Authority more than it does us.

“In the meantime, we are continuing to take many steps,” he added. “Our beefed-up forces are working day and night: carrying out arrests in certain areas and when an attack occurs, the place where it came from is closed, [whether it be a] village or neighborhood. Homes are prepared for demolition.”

UNRWA Teacher in Jordan Promotes Hatred of Jews on Facebook

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

A teacher working for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Jordan is actively promoting on his Facebook page a Palestinian Arab return to “Falastin,” a reference by Palestinian Authority leaders to all of the State of Israel as well as the current Palestinian Authority territories.

Among the photos posted by Nasreen Hammoud supporting the cause one can also find a rabidly anti-Semitic cartoon, apparently uploaded sometime last year.

It is worth noting that UNRWA requires all of its employees to sign neutrality agreements as a condition for employment.

The cartoon depicts a Jewish man (his face is not seen) wearing a blue-and-white shirt (the colors of the Israeli flag) emblazoned with a Magen David (Jewish star) on his chest, eating dinner.

It is an active promotion of the ancient blood libel that caused rivers of Jewish blood to flow in streets around the world.

The drinking glass is filled with what appears to be red blood – a blatant reference to the old blood libels that claim Jews drink the blood of their “victims” and also use it in ritual sacrifices, such as making matzos on Passover.

The back and tines of the fork are colored and adorned with the American flag. The blade of the knife bears Arabic writing (which this writer has been unable to translate, with apologies to the reader.)

The main course lying on the plate, which the Jewish diner is in the process of cutting, is a dead and bleeding Palestinian Arab child. The boy is wearing the black-and-white keffiyya (Arab scarf) of the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority’s ruling Fatah faction, led by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Although the cartoon garnered 13 “Likes” on Facebook, only one person wrote a guarded two-word comment in Arabic in response: “No comment.”

Relations between Israel and Jordan have been diplomatically firm but somewhat tense at the grassroots level. Jewish tourists to the Hashemite Kingdom are warned to remove any overt signs of their faith. A recent observant Jewish visitor to the country was bluntly told by one tour guide not to bring his tefillin (phylacteries) with him due to security issues.

Nevertheless, a number of hareidi-religious groups who are careful not to buy produce grown in fields located in the Land of Israel during the shemitta, or “seventh” year — when the Torah commands farmers to allow the Land to lie fallow and “rest” — instead import their produce weekly from farmers in Jordan for the duration.

The “Treaty of Peace Between the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was signed between the two nations on October 26, 1994.

Although there have been many times in which tensions have since threatened that peace, particularly over problems at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, both sides have repeatedly reiterated their commitment to peace.

Netanyahu’s Right. It Really Is About the Blood

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not waste time Tuesday after two Jerusalem Arabs slaughtered four prominent Anglo-Israeli rabbis and an Israeli Druze police officer, and wounded six other men.

Within the hour he arranged to convene a high-level security meeting, and shortly thereafter an order to demolish the homes of both terrorists who had carried out the attack.

But though the response was swift, it is unlikely to stem the flow of shahids, or “martyrs” for Islamic holy war against Israel.

The reason has to do with the maniacal blood lust that has gripped the local Arab population.  Both terrorists were shot dead by police at the scene — but not before they had “purified” Jerusalem – via the synagogue — with the blood of worshipers who came to pray the morning service.

It may sound very Biblical, this idea of the “purity through the blood,” but there is nothing at all holy about its application through murder.

Yet somehow, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has convinced its populace that it is so.  In a broadcast on official Palestinian Authority television (PA TV) November 7, 2014, a Fatah official in Lebanon blessed terrorists murderers for heeding a call to “purify Jerusalem” with blood. According to a statement translated by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) watchdog organization, Lebanon-based Muhammad Al-Biqa’i said, “Jerusalem needs blood in order to purify itself of Jews.”

Al-Biqa’i said, “They are the ones who heard the call of Yasser Arafat, while the Arab and Islamic nation ignored his call. ‘Millions of martyrs (shahids) are marching to Jerusalem.’ They came out with their weapons, with their true belief that Jerusalem needs blood to purify itself of Jews,” he proclaimed.

Just one week later, on November 14 – less than a week ago – PA Ministry for Religious Affairs representative Hassan Al-Saifi reiterated the call, according to an article published in the Al-Hayat Al-Jadida. As did the Fatah official before him, the ministry representative said ‘Jerusalem needs “sacrifices and blood.”’

Al-Saifi “addressed the suffering of the residents of Jerusalem and the continuing Israeli desecration of al-Aqsa” and declared “that Jerusalem has no need of declarations or religious rulings but rather needs the religious scholars in particular to fulfill their duty, rush to Jerusalem and offer sacrifices and blood.”

Both the Palestinian Authority unity government – which now partners with the Hamas terrorist organization – and the Fatah faction are headed by Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Known among Arabs by his terrorists nom de guerre “Abu Mazen,” Abbas also heads the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), having succeeded his mentor, former chief terrorist Yasser Arafat in the post. Not a single PA media item is published without Abu Mazen’s express approval.

It is Abbas whose doctorate focused on a denial of the Holocaust. And it is Abu Mazen who has skillfully, successfully, steadily and stealthily crafted the image of the Jewish threat to the Islamic Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount. But that alone was not enough to spark a third intifada and early in 2014 Abu Mazen and his counterparts in Hamas and Islamic Jihad finally figured that out.

What was missing, they realized, was the blood.

That thirst for the blood. The excitement. The adrenalin. Perhaps it has something to do with the climate? But this issue of violence, of passion and blood has become very central to Arab culture and mentality.

Consider one of the rituals at a traditional Bedouin wedding. There is a magnificently structured, stylized dance with swords performed by the groom and his father-in-law-to-be. The swords are often real in this ritual; when carried by those who hold to tradition, those blades are sharp. The smiles are quite wide.

344 Years after His Execution, French Jew Cleared of Blood Libel

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Nearly 350 years after his wrongful execution, a French Jew who had been convicted of a blood libel was exonerated and declared a martyr.

The village of Glatigny in the eastern district of Moselle set the record straight Sunday on the wrongful conviction of Raphael Levy in 1670 for murder. Levy, a simple merchant, was found guilty and burned at the stake for the alleged killing of three-year-old Didier Lemoine for ritual purposes, Le Figaro reported Sunday.

City officials affixed a plaque in Levy’s memory to a public building in the village of Glatigny, near where he was killed. The text refers to him as a “Jewish martyr from Boulay,” Levy’s village, who was “accused of a ritual crime which he did not commit.”

The ceremony was attended by about 100 people, including members of the Jewish community of Moselle, and Joel Mergui, president of the Consistoire – the French Jewish community’s organization responsible for religious services.

“Today we are back to square one, we are reconciled, we resume normal relations with the Jewish community,” the mayor of Glatigny, Victor Stallone, said. “Glatigny was cursed since that time because of a principled prohibition decided upon by the Jewish community.”

Stallone was referring to a decree issued by leaders of French Jewry following Levy’s execution, according to Henry Schumann of the Consistoire’s local branch. Le Figaro quotes him as saying that the Jewish community had declared Glatigny accursed and instructed Jews not to set foot there.

Painting of Jews Murdering Christian Children to Go on Display

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

A controversial 18-century painting depicting the ritual murder of Christian children by Jews, will be available to viewers in the cathedral of Sandomierz, Poland. The painting, “Mord Rytualny” or “Ritual Murder,” was painted by Charles de Prevot,

A plaque will be mounted next to the painting, which will inform viewers that the Jews did not actually commit ritual murder, because their faith prohibits it.

The painting has been mounted on the wall of the cathedral for many years, but has been hidden behind a red curtain because of its offensive nature.

The painting will go on display again on Thursday, as the Catholic Church marks its international Day of Judaism.

In the eighteenth century, Charles de Prevot painted a series of paintings, “Martyrologium Romanum,” depicting the martyrdom of Christians. These paintings show brutal and realistic scenes of tortured and murdered Christians by pagans. The painting depicting the ritual murder has been covered since 2006.

Putin Perpetuates Antisemitic Lie of First Soviet ‘Mostly Jewish’

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Some antisemitic lies just don’t die, but it is incumbent on Jewish reporters to refute them every single time, especially when they’re being espoused by a brutal Russian politician with the capacity to inflict a lot of pain on the Jews in his country.

According to a JTA report, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the world last week that at least 80 percent of the members of the first Soviet government were Jewish.

“I thought about something just now: The decision to nationalize this library was made by the first Soviet government, whose composition was 80-85 percent Jewish,” Putin said on June 13, during a visit to Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.

Putin was referencing the library of Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, the late leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The books, which have been claimed by Chabad representatives in the United States, are being moved to the museum in Moscow this month.

According to the official transcript of Putin’s speech at the museum, he went on to say that the politicians on the predominantly Jewish Soviet government “were guided by false ideological considerations and supported the arrest and repression of Jews, Russian Orthodox Christians, Muslims and members of other faiths. They grouped everyone into the same category.

In other words, the Jews who were murdered en masse by the Soviets had only their own kind to blame.

Now, that’s a neat trick.

“Thankfully, those ideological goggles and faulty ideological perceptions collapsed. And today, we are essentially returning these books to the Jewish community with a happy smile,” Putin concluded.

Keep smiling, or he’ll bite your head off…

The Council of People’s Commissars or Sovnarkom, also known as SNK, was a government institution formed shortly after the October Revolution in 1917. Created in the Russian Republic the council laid foundations in restructuring the country to form the Soviet Union. It evolved to become the highest government authority of executive power under the Soviet system in states which came under the control of Bolsheviks.

Here’s a list of the original commissars:

Chairman Vladimir Lenin , died of natural causes, 1924.

Secretary Nikolai Petrovich Gorbunov, not a Jew, executed 1938.

People’s Commissariat for Agriculture of the RSFSR Vladimir Pavlovich Milyutin, not a Jew, executed 1937.

Council of People’s Commissars on War and Navy Affairs Nikolai Krylenko, not a Jew, executed 1938.

Pavel Dybenko, a Ukrainian Cossack, definitely not a Jew, executed 1938.

People’s Commissariat for Trade and Industry of the RSFSR Viktor Nogin, not a Jew, died of natural causes, 1924.

People’s Commissariat for Education of the RSFSR Anatoly Lunacharsky, had Jewish friends, but was not a Jew, died of natural causes, 1933.

People’s Commissariat for Food Ivan Teodorovich, came from Poland, which could mean he was Jewish, but there’s no mention of it in his online bio, executed 1937.

People’s Commissariat for Foreign Affairs of the RSFSR, Leon Trotsky, so far the only real Jew on the list, assassinated by Comrade Stalin (with an ax, in Mexico), 1940.

People’s Commissariat for Interior Affairs of the RSFSR, Alexei Rykov, his parents were peasants from the village of Kukarka, very not Jewish, executed 1938.

People’s Commissariat for Justice of the RSFSR Georgy Oppokov, was kicked off the panel in 1918, not Jewish, executed 1937.

People’s Commissariat for Labour of the RSFSR Alexander Shlyapnikov, came from a family of Old Believers, who were kind of the Protestants of the Russian Orthodox Church, so not a Jew, executed 1937.

People’s Commissariat of Nationalities Joseph Stalin, about as not Jewish as you can get, died of natural causes (thought Jewish doctors were killing him), 1953 (on Purim).

People’s Commissariat for Posts and Telegraphs of the RSFSR Nikolai Glebov-Avilov, not a Jew, executed 1937.

People’s Commissariat for Railways of the RSFSR – position was vacant, so no Jew, no execution.

People’s Commissariat for Finance Ivan Skvortsov-Stepanov, not a Jews, died of natural causes, 1928.

People’s Commissariat for Social Welfare Alexandra Kollontai, her dad was General Mikhail Alekseevich Domontovich, from a Cossack family that traced its ancestry back to the 13th Century, so, also not a Jew, died of natural causes, 1952.

In other words, one Jewish commissar for certain, founder of the Red Army that eventually defeated the Nazis, Leon Trotsky, and maybe another guy, who came from Poland, so who knows, maybe he was Jewish.
