Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu preceded his flight to Germany Wednesday for a meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel with by rejecting criticism of his remarks last night that linked Mufti al-Husseini with the Holocaust.
Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog, his cohorts on Israel Radio’s Kol Yisrael (Reshet Bet) and the Palestinian Authority were all over the Prime Minister Wednesday morning, accusing him of re-writing history and inciting Arabs.
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s comments on the Mufti during his speech to the World Jewish Congress were perfectly timed, giving him ammunition to carry with him when talking with Merkel about Palestinian Authority incitement.
He rejected criticism that his comments implied that Hitler was not responsible for the slaughter of 6 million Jews, and he explained:
It is absurd. I had no intention to absolve Hitler of responsibility for his diabolical destruction of European Jewry. Hitler was responsible for the Final Solution to exterminate six million Jews. He made the decision.
It is equally absurd to ignore the role played by the Mufti, Haj Amin al -Husseini, a war criminal, for encouraging and urging Hitler, Ribbentropp, Himmler and others, to exterminate European Jewry. There is much evidence about this, including the testimony of Eichmann’s deputy at the Nuremberg trials, not now, but after World War II. He said:
He replied to Arab criticism that he false accused the Mufti of advising Hitler to burn Jews and said:
There is much evidence about this, including the testimony of Eichmann’s deputy at the Nuremberg trials, not now, but after World War II. He said:
‘The Mufti was instrumental in the decision to exterminate the Jews of Europe. The importance of his role must not be ignored. The Mufti repeatedly proposed to the authorities, primarily Hitler, Ribbentropp and Himmler, to exterminate the Jews of Europe. He considered it a suitable solution for the Palestinian question’.
Eichmann’s deputy, added:
‘The Mufti was one of the instigators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and was a partner and adviser to Eichmann and Hitler for carrying out this plan’.
He reminded listeners that “Haj Amin al-Husseini is still a revered figure in Palestinian society. He appears in textbooks and it is taught that he is one of the founding fathers of the nation, and this incitement that started then with him, inciting the murder of Jews – continues.
A university professor in Philadelphia this week called anti-Jihad activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer “dirty Jewish Zionist thugs.”
Kaukab Siddique, an associate professor of English at Lincoln University, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in an interview on Monday, “I would say it again.”
Siddique slammed Geller for activities carried out by the group she heads with Spencer, the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group has sponsored the recent controversial “Draw Mohammed” cartoon contests – one of which drew terrorist gunfire in Texas from an irate Muslim jihadist.
“She did the worst, other than killing us,” Siddique said. By violating what is “most sacred to us, we can talk about her, that she is Jewish and she is white and she’s a supremacist and she is doing this to us,’ he said.
Siddique has also publicly expressed doubt about the truth of the Holocaust, referring in speeches to the work of Holocaust denier David Irving who has said there is no evidence that Jews were murdered in gas chambers.
“I have read things from both sides and therefore I think that for any study of the Holocaust, we need to know what the critics say,” Siddique said. “Were there ovens?. . . If you study the pictures of Auschwitz, there are no ovens there.”
Spencer, who also heads “Jihad Watch,” responded in an email commentary Wednesday, “Siddique calls our defense of free speech ‘cultural genocide’ when in fact, Shari’a (Islamic law) is cultural genocide. Islamic history is built upon cultural annihilations, jihad wars and enslavements.”
In response to Siddique’s odd question about the gas chambers during the Holocaust, Spencer charges, “This poisonous Holocaust denier is teaching our children. How did we get here? The silence of reasoned, the rational. The silence of everyone who stood silent when they came after us, fearing they’d be labeled ‘Islamophobes’ and ‘racists’ by Jew-haters and radicals…
“Worst of all, back in May, when ISIS first issued its fatwa (edict) calling for me to be murdered, Siddique wrote on Facebook:
“Very cleverly, the corporate media are trying to present the Texas situation as ISIS vs. Geller. The Prophet Muhammmad [sic], pbuh, (ed: “peace be upon him”) is the , [sic] leader of the ENTIRE UMMAH, not just of ISIS. Two of ISIS gave their lives for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh. We can’t do that, but the law of this land gives us the right to speak out. ISNA, ICNA and CAIR think you can simply ignore blasphemy. Millions embraced Islam because of Malcolm. (ed: Malcolm X) Imagine what America’s oppressed people think of us when we don’t speak even when our greatest sanctity is violated? Muslims, we are waiting for Allah’s wrath to descend on us.”
Siddique did not condemn ISIS, Spencer pointed out. “He says that ISIS is part of the umma, in arguing that the entire umma should be trying to kill me, not just ISIS. Siddique is, like ISIS, trying to enforce Shari’a blasphemy laws by force, trying to intimidate the West into silence in the face of the jihad threat.”
Other past Facebook postings have included such gems as: “Know the Jews and you’ll know your enemy” and references to renowned Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz as “that Zionist Jewish dog Derschowitz (sic).”
In his interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Siddique also slammed the U.S. military, saying it had “fallen below Hitler” in treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and in Iraq.
But in the classroom Siddique claimed, “My policy with students is to help them to think, not tell them what to think.”
The professor, age 72 and a native of Pakistan, teaches at a mosque and community center in Baltimore, where he lives with his wife, outside of the university. He also publishes an Islamic magazine.
The difference between Hitler and Khamenei is 80 years.
The Ayatollah of Iran has published a 416-page book entitled “Palestine” and whose book cover features the world “Palestine” on a map of the country he wishes used to be Israel.
Nothing is coincidental in the Iranian regime. The publication of the new book, bound to a best-seller in Iran, is part of a propaganda campaign to brainwash Iranians into thinking that the agreement with the P5+1 powers does not have anything to do with the regime’s ultimate dream of wiping out Israel.
Khamenei explains that is absolutely logical that Israel should not exist for three major reasons:
Israel is an ally of the “Great Satan” known as the United States of America;
Israel is a “hostile infidel” because it supposedly has waged war against Muslims’ and
Israel “occupies” Islam’s third holiest city, Jerusalem.
The New York Post reported that the back cover of the book credits Khamenei as “the flag bearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”
Israel is not the only country that should be erased, according to the book, which repeats the radical Islamic vision of a Caliphate Empire on all Muslim lands.
That means India also must be wiped off the map. Parts of Russia must be under Muslim rule. Several European countries should not exist as such, and China can kiss good-bye to nearly one-third of its land mass. Ditto for parts of the Philippines and Thailand.
Khamenei’s strategy for taking over Israel and all of the other “Muslim” counties is to create conditions that will convince everyone to leave for a abate life elsewhere.
That means Congress can relax and give its stamp of approval to ObamaDeal because Khamenei does not need a nuclear weapon to wipe out Israel.
Just lift sanctions and give him tens of billions of dollars to fund Hezbollah and Hamas, and perhaps the Boycott Movement.
The strategy actually is a statement of current events. The United Nations, and especially the European Union and the Obama administration, invent every opportunity to condemn Israel for promoting the presence of Jews in a Palestinian Authority country whose principle of “no-Jews allowed” violates the charter of the United Nations.
According to the New York Post’s report and translation from the Farsi-language book, Khamenei wrote:
We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought victory in the 33-day war by Hezbollah against Israel in 2006 and in the 22-day war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip.
And once Iran has a nuclear weapon, if not next year then in 10 or 15 years, any Israeli pre-emptive action could be met by a nuclear attack. One way or the other, Khamenei wants the means to destroy Israel and much of the rest of the world.
His book once again exposes that Iran is no less a threat to Europe than to Israel, but Europe is so overrun by Muslims that its leaders don’t have the strength to see the future.
Instead, they focus on Israel, promoting the “two-state” solution while Khamenei writes in his book that there must be a “one-state solution of a single state of a Muslim Palestine.
Like Iran, it would allow Jews to remain, without a right to vote and only if they prove they have “genuine roots.” that means the a large majority of the Israelis, like myself, would have to get on the next plane and “go back” to the United States, Europe, Morocco, Yemen and the former Soviet bloc, among dozens of other countries.
(JNi.media) From July 27 to August 5, the 14th European Maccabi Games will take place in Berlin. It’s Europe’s biggest Jewish sports event, and it will take place in Germany—for the first time in its history. As the event’s website puts it, “Jewish athletes were excluded from the Olympic Games in 1936,” but, this summer, “thousands will send a message for tolerance and openness and against anti-Semitism and racism.”
Actually, Jews were not officially excluded in 1936, although it was no fun being a Jew in Berlin back then, or being a Jewish athlete. Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler saw the Games as an opportunity to promote his idea of racial supremacy, and the official Nazi paper, the Völkischer Beobachter, wrote that Jews should not be allowed to participate, but when the games were threatened with a boycott by some nations, Hitler acquiesced and allowed every ethnic group to participate.
He regretted it when African American athlete Jesse Owens set the world record in the long jump with a leap of 26 ft 8 in. His record stood for 25 years, far outlasting the Third Reich. Hitler left the stadium in a huff.
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told RBB radio: “This is the stadium where the Olympic games were exploited by Hitler. To hold on that spot a Jewish sporting event like the Maccabi Games, that is an important and nice message.”
“More than 2,000 Jewish sportswomen and sportsmen from more than 36 countries will compete against each other in 19 disciplines in Berlin’s Olympic Park,” declares the games’ website.
No place like Berlin for discipline…
President of Maccabi Germany Alon Meyer told AP the decision to host the Jewish Games in Berlin, although difficult, is a “signal of reconciliation” 70 years after the end of World War II.
“There were a lot of people who said that they would never in their lives step again on German soil and we have to respect that,” Meyer told foreign reporters on Monday.
However, he noted, “we are a new generation … and the question of guilt is long resolved.”
There you go.
The 13th European Maccabi Games were held in 2011 in Vienna, Austria, and it was the largest gathering of Jews in that city since the Holocaust.
We have to stop meeting like this…
Daniel Collins, head of the UK delegation to the Games, told The Guardian: “I doubt any games anywhere will be as emotionally charged as this one; thousands of Jewish people parading in the Olympic stadium, which houses such meaning, not only to the world’s Jewish community, but to the world’s sporting community.”
Donald Trump, who remains at the top of the overstuffed heap of Republican presidential candidates, dumped all over President Barack Obama for the new agreement with Iran and said, “This country’s going to hell.”
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were not much less harsh, with Bush comparing President Obama with Chamberlain’s appeasement to Hitler, while Rubio said the deal undermines America’s security.
The “ObamaDeal,” just like ObamaCare, is going to get a spanking in Congress but the President is counting on Democratic Senators to prevent a two-thirds veto-proof opposition to ObamaDeal.
Trump said what everyone in the Middle East knows. “The Persians are always great negotiators” and that’s why “they are laughing at us back in Iran,” he told CNN.
He noted that Iran is holding four Americans on charges of espionage and added:
Why couldn’t they make that part of the deal? It would have happened quickly — easily if you had the right messenger. And that should have actually happened earlier. That should have happened at the beginning of the negotiations….
I’ll be honest with you. I want to save the country. Our country’s going to hell. We have a problem. I want to make America great again.
Trump told NBC that President Obama “dealt from desperation,” and remarked, “You know the Iranians are going to cheat. They’re great negotiators and you know they’re going to cheat.
Bush compared President Obama with Chamberlain and said in a prepared statement:
This isn’t diplomacy – it is appeasement. The people of Iran, the region, Israel, America, and the world deserve better than a deal that consolidates the grip on power of the violent revolutionary clerics who rule Tehran with an iron fist.
Sen. Rubio stated, “Based on what we know thus far, I believe that this deal undermines our national security. President Obama has consistently negotiated from a position of weakness, giving concession after concession to a regime that has American blood on its hands, holds Americans hostage, and has consistently violated every agreement it ever signed.
He told Fox News:
For him [Obama], this whole deal, you know what it is? It is an exhibit in his presidential library.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton called the ObamaDeal “an important step which puts a lid on Iran’s nuclear programs.” Vermont Sen. and underdog Bernie Sanders was more extreme and congratulated President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a “victory for diplomacy over saber-rattling [that] could keep the United States from being drawn into another never-ending war in the Middle East.”
Others argue just the opposite, that ObamaDeal makes war inevitable.
Rubio was quoted in The Washington Times as saying:
Look at the press coverage of this issue: Some of it’s been glowing as some sort of historic deal — it’s ridiculous. A third-rate autocracy has now been given equality with a world power, with the United States of America.
They are now a nuclear threshold country on a deal signed with the United States and other global powers. That’s why they’re cheering in the streets [of] Tehran; that’s why they’re celebrating. You don’t see any celebrations in America. You don’t see any celebrations in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, because they know this is a one-sided deal.
Nicholas Winton, known as “Britain’s Schindler” for his rescuing 669 Jewish children from the Holocaust, died in England on Wednesday at the age of 106.
He remained silent about his heroism in helping the children escape from Czechoslovakia until his wife found a scrapbook in the attic of their home in 1988. It included a record of names and pictures of the children whom he helped rescue and prompted an exposure of his heroism.
Winton discovered the situation of Jews in Czechoslovakia when he visited there at the behest of a friend in 1938. A stockbroker by trade, Winton bribed German officials and forged document to rescue children, despite the Gestapo’s being on his trail.
He returned to Britain a year later and continued to help rescue efforts by raising money and finding foster homes for more children whom two friends were still working to rescue from within Czechoslovakia. Queen Elizabeth granted Winton knighthood for his work.
The New York Times reported that among “Winton’s children” are film director Karel Reisz, who made “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” and “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning” (1960); Lord Alfred Dubs, who became a member of Parliament; Joe Schlesinger, a Canadian broadcast correspondent; Hugo Marom, a founder of the Israeli Air Force; author Vera Gissing; and Renata Laxová, a geneticist who discovered the Neu-Laxová Syndrome, a congenital abnormality.
Winton’s wife died in 1999, and he is survived by two children and grandchildren.
Nicholas Winton was born on 19 May 1909 in Hampstead, London, a son of Barbara (née Wertheimer) and Rudolph Wertheim. His parents were German Jews who had moved to London two years earlier.The family name was Wertheim, but they changed it to Winton in an effort at integration. They also converted to Christianity, and Winton was baptized.
