We are told that there is a difference between extremist Islam and peaceloving normal Islam.

Judging by their behavior, Muslims are anti-West, anti-Democracy, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Buddhist, and anti-Hindu. Muslims are involved in most of the conflicts going on in the world: in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Cyprus, East Timor, India, Indonesia (2 provinces), Kashmir, Kazakastan, Kosovo, Kurdistan, Macedonia, the Middle East, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Somalia, Sudan, Russia-Chechnya, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uganda and Uzbekistan. Muslims practice terrorism, intimidation, criminal acts, hijrataqiyya, bribery and stealth jihad in Western countries. And Muslim Sunnis and Muslim Shiites battle each other in most of the Middle East.

Doesn’t this mean that extremist Islam is the norm and peaceloving normal Islam is extremely rare?

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.
“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”   (PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977, interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.)

The Palestinian leadership, including Ahmed Shukar and Yasser Arafat, has openly admitted Palestinian “peoplehood” is a fraud; See here.


“It should be remembered that in 1918, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Britain and France were handed more than 5,000,000 square miles to divvy up and 99% was given to the Arabs to create countries that did not exist previously. Less than 1% was given as a Mandate for the re-establishment of a state for the Jews on both banks of the Jordan River. In 1921, to appease the Arabs once again, another three quarters of that less than 1% was given to a fictitious state called Trans-Jordan.” (Jack Berger, May 31, 2004.)

THE LEFT’S MAINSTREAMING OF ANTI-SEMITISM CONTINUES APACE

THE LEFT’S MAINSTREAMING OF ANTI-SEMITISM CONTINUES APACE

Paul Miller, January 24, 2021

If there is one thing that unites the political extremes — from the halls of Congress and the steps of the Capitol, from Main Street to academia — it’s disdain for Jews. Embraced and excused by both the far Right and far Left in America, anti-Semitism has gone mainstream.

Provided by Washington Examiner

Bigotry has a strange way of sticking to its historical roots and evolving to meet contemporary times. The far Right tends to believe the traditional lies about Jews controlling the government, media, and financial institutions. Staunch liberals adopt the same old canards but also deflect their anti-Semitism with woke code terms such as “anti-Zionism” — blaming the world’s ills not on the Jews but on Israel and its supporters.

Politicians and media outlets talk a good game about condemning anti-Semitism. But when it’s propagated by a vocal, influential minority in the Democratic Party, anti-Semitism is tolerated and covered up by the Left’s power structure.

A recent example is President Biden’s nomination of Kristen Clarke to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. You wouldn’t know it from reading the New York Times or watching CNN, but Clarke has a troubling history of advocating for anti-Semites and representing anti-Semitic lies as “fact.”

During her time as the head of Harvard’s Black Students Association, Clarke invited Tony Martin as a guest lecturer. A staunch anti-Semite and Holocaust denier, Martin had written a book called The Jewish Onslaught in which he attacked Judaism and the Jewish people. Clarke supported Martin’s Jew-hatred, writing in the student newspaper, “Professor Martin is an intelligent, well-versed black intellectual who bases his information [anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial] on indisputable fact.”

In 2019, Clarke signed a petition[1] in support of liberal anti-Semite Tamika Mallory. The former co-chairwoman of the Women’s March, Mallory has praised Louis Farrakhan, refusing to condemn that notorious anti-Semite’s legacy of Jew-hatred. Mallory has referred to “white Jews” as white supremacists.

If Clarke were a conservative or Republican, would Biden or Nancy Pelosi ignore her past support of hate? Would MSNBC and the Washington Post remain silent over her history of tolerating and excusing bigotry? Of course not. Her recent claim[2] that inviting Martin was merely a “mistake” was an obvious play for cover that the Left is, unfortunately, happy to provide.

In Congress, there is Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and the poster child for liberal anti-Semitism. She has accused[3] American Jews of dual loyalties and of buying influence among her colleagues with their money. She supports the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign against Israel and claims that Israel has hypnotized the world. Her hatred for Jews earned her 2019’s “Antisemite of the Year” award from the nongovernmental organization StopantiSemitism.org.[4] Mazel tov?

Yet Omar’s disdain for Jews has garnered only minimal criticism from her party. Yes, Pelosi asked Omar to apologize, but she never asked her to resign. Indeed, Pelosi endorsed her reelection campaign with a large donation.

If Omar had an “R” next to her name or attacked the African American or gay community, she would have been out of office in a heartbeat. But attacking Jews is acceptable in academia, the Democratic Party, and the press, as long as it comes from a left-wing source.

Earlier this month, freshman congresswoman Mary Miller, a Republican from Illinois, speaking at a “Save the Republic” rally in Washington, D.C., quoted Adolf Hitler in a sad display of ignorance and insensitivity. She was condemned[5] by Illinois Republican leaders and apologized for her remarks. Nearly every Illinois Democratic leader demanded she resign.

It just goes to show that for Democrats, anti-Semitism is a tool of political convenience. For years, they’ve been silent about fellow Democrats such as Omar.

During the summer riots in cities across America, it was commonplace for synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses[6] to be vandalized with swastikas and profanity. This should surprise no one, as the Black Lives Matter organization has a history of anti-Semitism, from supporting the BDS campaign against the Jewish state’s very existence to its Dream Defenders offshoot working directly[7] with a Palestinian terrorist group.

But criticizing BLM is regarded as political suicide among liberals. It will only get you labeled a “racist” by traditional media outlets. Honest debate is off the table when it comes to BLM.

The mainstreaming of anti-Semitism on the political Left is, in many ways, a natural development. For decades, college campuses, with the support of leftist professors, have normalized anti-Zionism and rendered it synonymous with anti-Semitism. The radical intersectionalist political movement has been infiltrated by anti-Israel organizations, creating an environment hostile to Jews. Over time, these academics and student activists become professionals and leaders who denounce anything they deem attached to Zionism.

Across the aisle, conservatives and Republicans actually police their own. After flirting with white supremacists, now-former Rep. Steve King of Iowa was stripped of his committees in 2018 and thrown out by Republican primary voters in 2020.

Leading the charge against King was the Republican Jewish Coalition. By contrast, the Jewish Democratic Council of America recently campaigned heavily[8] in support of Georgia Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock, who has a history of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric as well as supporting Farrakhan.[9] The RJC, unlike its Democratic counterpart, won’t hesitate to call out anti-Semitism by anyone carrying the GOP banner.

 

Legacy media outlets are already trying to equate the GOP with white supremacy. Democrats are all too happy to back their play, especially while their own mainstreaming of anti-Semitism is tolerated and embraced by liberals and the press.

ADORABLE: BLM MARXISTS GET A HARSH LESSON IN REAL MARXISM

ADORABLE: BLM MARXISTS GET A HARSH LESSON IN REAL MARXISM

Patriotic Viral News, December 2020

The Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLMGN) is the umbrella organization that was set up as a nonprofit to rake in all that sweet, sweet corporate blackmail cash. Local BLM chapters are supposed to be under the authority of the BLMGN, and in turn, the BLMGN is supposed to have the bigwigs who do all of the planning, campaigning, and shaking down of corporations.

Since it was first formed during Barack Obama’s time in office, BLMGN has really been a small-potatoes organization. It was only taking in cash in the low millions range for its first few years. But not this year! Ever since George Floyd death, BLMGN has raked in somewhere close to $2 billion from virtue signaling corporations.

But now all of the local BLM chapters across the country are a bit miffed. They want to know where all that sweet corporate cash went to, and why they haven’t seen any of it. The three women who founded BLMGN are not answering any of those questions.

Hahahahaha!

That is soooo CUTE! Of course, most of us who know what actual Marxism is like understand exactly where the money went. The three ladies who founded BLMGN are living their best Oprah lives now. Probably on private yachts somewhere.

But for the local BLM chapters, this is obviously their first brush with true Marxism. If they had ever bothered to read “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, they’d know that the pigs get to eat all of the good food and sleep in fluffy beds inside the house, while the worker animals have to stay outside the house.

Sure, the local BLM chapters across the country did all the hard work. They went out and rioted and looted and burned down stores and wrecked statues and people’s lives. But that was only possible because of all the hard work and thinking that the boss pigs inside the house did. See? All black lives are equal, but some black lives are more equal than others.

Adorable: BLM Marxists Get a Harsh Lesson in Real Marxism

BLACK LIVES MATTER IN SCHOOLS ACROSS AMERICA

BLACK LIVES MATTER IN SCHOOLS ACROSS AMERICA: IT STARTS BY TEACHING YOUNG CHILDREN ITS MARXIST-BASED IDEOLOGY

Mass-Resistance, October 31, 2020

Now showing up in schools: well-crafted propaganda lessons (including LGBT) designed for various age groups. Starting in elementary school!

The starting point of the national Black Lives Matter curriculum is indoctrinating children with its Marxist “13 Guiding Principles.” Note the fist symbol – for revolution – implies violence.

When parents happen to watch their children’s Zoom classes and notice an offensive Black Lives Matter assignment or diatribe by the teacher during an academic class, they might assume it’s an isolated situation.

But in fact, the vast national and local Black Lives Matter (BLM) curriculum materials are very sophisticated and extremely well-planned. Their aim is to transform every child’s mind starting as young as possible. The BLM founders admit to being trained Marxists and LGBT activists — and the BLM ideology now flooding the nation’s schools fully reflects that.

Learning BLM’s “13 guiding principles”

Normal parents would want their young children told the truth that all people of all races have the same common humanity. They would not want them given the racist poison that one race is more “special” or “deserving” or “better” than the others. But there’s more to BLM than just that.

The starting point of the BLM curriculum is infusing children with their “13 Guiding Principles.” They are basically Marxist philosophy. These principles are drilled into the kids’ minds quite thoroughly.

The BLM 13 principles (based in Marxism) include.

  • Restorative Justice: This isn’t real justice. It includes reparations, etc., that white people must pay blacks (or perform other actions) because of alleged or real injustice by other people against other victims (i.e., police violence, slavery).
  • Empathy: This isn’t normal empathy. It’s contrived empathy for people BLM declares are victims of social or cultural injustice.
  • Loving engagement: For kids, this means telling their parents or friends that their old-fashioned values are wrong, or that their “privilege” makes them racist. Engagement for adults includes the “peaceful” protests (that often lead to violence), confronting people in restaurants, and even de-platforming others on social media.
  • Diversity: This is the Marxist philosophy of dividing people into opposing groups instead of ignoring racial and ethnic differences and concentrating on their common humanity.
  • Globalism: This is the idea that America (or any nation) is not special and exceptional, but we should have a global (socialist) government, and without borders.
  • Transgender affirming: This pushes the scientific quackery that so-called “transgenderism” is normal and not a mental illness. It’s also a way of introducing young children to “gender” ideology.
  • Queer affirming: Similar to Transgender affirming; includes gay/lesbian/bisexual behavior.
  • Intergenerational: This says that society should be “free of ageism.” But in fact, it tells children that they are qualified to instruct their parents and grandparents on “correct” ideas and behavior.
  • Collective value: This is used to justify not judging destructive ideas and behavior. It says that all ideas and behaviors have the same value — for example: sexual behaviors, immoral behavior, atheism, being an illegal immigrant, etc.
  • Black families …
  • Black villages …
  • Black women …
  • Unapologetically black: These four are all blatant racism, dressed up in various ways to sound noble. The “Black families” principle also includes the Marxist idea that the traditional family structure must be “dismantled” — as they put it.

Presented in “feel-good” language tailored by age group

Like all good Marxists, they dress all this up in “feel-good” sounding language on the surface. But that is just the starting point. Underneath the surface these “principles” are heavily refined and used consistently and to push the clear Marxist agenda that they were intended for.

These BLM Marxist principles are also presented differently depending on the age groups.

Here is the list devised for teachers and other adults: (See a larger version here.)

Here is the list presented for Elementary School children: (See a larger version here.)

Here is the list presented for Middle School and High School children: (See a larger version here.)

Moving the indoctrination forward

Once we start to look a little further in the curriculum materials, we can see where this is headed. The purpose is clearly to indoctrinate children in a larger, sinister Marxist ideology.

Black Lives Matter provides teachers a list of definitions of terms “to support your explanation of the 13 BLM principles.” These terms include: privilege, white supremacy, heterosexism, gender, cisgender, patriarchy, dismantle, and others. That’s what the “principles” are actually all about.

 

Here is the list of definitions of terms for teachers: (See a larger version here.)

These are the terms being used to “refine” the principles in the minds of children. The purpose is clearly to create a generation of very radicalized, confused, and angry young people.

What can people do to stop this?

We are committed to helping people confront this across the country. But we can’t do it alone.

The first thing people need to do is become educated about what is actually happening. That is the purpose of this series of reports.

Beyond that, people need to find out what is taking place in their local schools. (Most people, particularly parents, are shockingly unaware of any of this — which is what the schools want!) And then they need to have the courage to confront it and force the local officials to stop it. MassResistance is on the ground, has decades of experience, and can help with all of that. We’ve shown over and over that a small number of dedicated and educated citizens can move mountains!

This is where “queer affirming” is leading children: “freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking.” A parent’s nightmare!


“A leading pro-family activist organization, MassResistance provides the information and guidance people need to confront assaults on the traditional family, school children, and the moral foundation of society.” They point out that “too many pro-family groups want to be seen as ‘reasonable and ‘not extreme.’ They tend to ‘fight’ by writing commentary, re-posting shocking articles, and putting up a polite opposition to the latest left-wing lunacy. So they don’t accomplish much. But MassResistance focuses on exposing the harsh truths,” MassResistance has worked with activists in almost every US state and has offered guidance to activists in Australia, Canada, France, England, Ireland, Jamaica, the Virgin Islands, Finland, Ghana, Spain, Uganda, Nigeria, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Israel, New Zealand, Croatia, Brazil, and Chile.

BLM — A RIGHTEOUS CAUSE OR COMMUNISM IN BLACKFACE?

BLM — A RIGHTEOUS CAUSE OR COMMUNISM IN BLACKFACE?

by Joshua Washington, October 20, 2020

Communist fist juxtaposed to BLM fist

I previously wrote an article about the Jew-hatred within the Black Lives Matter Movement.[1] Even more previously, I wrote an article denoting the historical precedence for black groups allying with the Palestinian agenda.[2] This article will show that Black Lives Matter is actually not good for the black community, and that the vast majority of the community does not support the tenets of the movement.

This is not about the notion that black lives matter. Virtually everybody supports the phrase ‘black lives matter,’ because they do. This is not the topic in question, and those who try to make it so are engaging in straw man arguments. Let us lay to rest that the question of black lives mattering is not, nor has ever been in play. This is about the movement, and the organization it is attached to, the Movement for Black Lives, and the negative effects it has had on the black community.

According to the Gallup Center on Black Voices,[3] 81% of black Americans either want to retain police presence, or want more. Only 19% of black Americans want less police presence. That statistic is very interesting considering polls from the same source show that only 19% of black people have confidence in the police. One fairly obvious way those two seemingly disparate statistics are actually congruent with each other is that in many cities, including my hometown of Stockton, California, one of our biggest complaints about the police is that they don’t come fast enough when called; that sometimes, police don’t show up for up to two hours, if they show up at all. In my city, that has a lot to do with the fact that our police officers were reduced by a third in 2010, after a former mayor cut $14 million from the department. The reduction was felt across the city as crime drastically increased in the subsequent years and Stockton set new records for most homicides[4] in 2011, and 2012. When the cuts were made, it was so dire that Stockton PD officers had to reluctantly let the city know that they could no longer guarantee our safety.[5] This was true for many cities struggling with crime within those few years, particularly Detroit, MI.[6] Budgets were cut, and the crime increased. Among the lack of confidence in the police department by a majority of black people, there is a significant number of those who do so because of the lack of police presence. Like many in my city expressed, we lacked confidence, not in their ability to do their job correctly, but in their ability to show up.

Another position BLM takes is to end all charter schools.[7] This has been a position BLM along with other notable groups have officially taken since 2016, despite mounting evidence that the majority of black and brown families support charter schools and favor them over their local public schools. The vast majority of black and Hispanic American parents are pro-school choice,[8] as many know that being able to choose the kind of education their child receives may give their child a better chance of performing well. In California, 75% of black boys in the public school system cannot read at grade level. These staggering statistics stretch across the country, and parents see the need for having the freedom to choose a better way for their kids. Ending charter schools would not only do nothing to help minority communities, it will hurt them. If anything, BLM is much more aligned with white democrats[9] than they are with black people.

The alignment does not end with white democrats. BLM and M4BL founder, Patrisse Cullors admits[10] in an interview that she and her two co-founder colleagues are “trained Marxists.” Because of this admission, BLM’s official positions should be viewed through that broader lens. Researcher and business analyst Lipton Matthews breaks down in an op-ed[11] why BLM’s opposition to both capitalism and the nuclear family[12] is incredibly problematic and contrary to the core values of the broader black community, as is Marxism itself. M4BL writes:

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and villages that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

Matthews responds in the op-ed:

“Those unfamiliar with Marxism may be puzzled at this seemingly random opposition to the nuclear family. Deeper introspection, however, reveals that the BLM organization’s outlook is quite consistent with Marxism.”

“Marxists view the living arrangement of the ‘extended family’ as more conducive to fostering collectivism, since it requires conformity to successfully facilitate production. On the other hand, the traditional, two-parent nuclear family is depicted as an insidious invention of capitalism, responsible for displacing the communalism of the extended family.”

For the uninitiated, Marxism is Communism, and it is a system in which the government owns all property and distributes as it sees fit. It is a system that has proven to fail time and time again,[13] yet proponents of it continue to infiltrate free societies to romanticize and promote it. The millions of people who have fled communist regimes[14] have much wisdom to offer those of us who think the teachings of Karl Marx are a good thing, but unfortunately, their voices[15] are not elevated like the ones preaching it to the masses. Marxism tends to dress itself in words like “freedom,” “liberation,” or “revolution” to attract young minds. The bitter irony is that Marxism is literally the opposite of those words.

A fairly recent example is in South Africa. A self-proclaimed Marxist party called the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) took advantage of a tense situation in the country. As South Africa was embroiled in fights and bloody exchanges over the issue of land expropriation, leaders in the EFF were preaching liberation for black South Africans. They urged blacks to rise up and take back land that many of their ancestors lost to white settlers. The EFF’s solution? To seize all land in South Africa in order to “distribute” to blacks everywhere (page 28 of their manifesto).[16] The glaring issue with this position, beside the fact that it is divisive and dangerous, is that not all land is owned by whites. AmaZulu King Goodwill Zwelithini in particular had choice words[17] for the proposal. Whether or not the Zulu king knows the historical precedence for the EFF’s communist-style takeover proposal, everyone would be advised to know that the method has never once yielded favorable results except to the leaders who force it on their people. Yes, Communists regimes have killed tens of millions of people just in the past 100 years through government sanctioned mass killings alone. Anyone seen as a threat to the Marxist-Communist way of life is summarily executed. These killings usually start with the religious institutions as they teach faith in and allegiance to a higher power as opposed to the state or supreme leader.

This is what communism is; a conduit for which corrupt leaders can have complete power and keep their feet on the necks of the people. It is this doctrine in which BLM leaders say they are “trained.” When BLM founder Patrisse Cullors says they are “laying the foundation for a new society,” she may think it will be a society where she and other black people will be at the helm, but she, and many like her fit the description of the useful idiot; a person promoting a particular cause that has goals for which they are unaware. By the time they are aware, according to defected KGB informant, Yuri Bezmenov,[18] those are the people who are first lined up and shot when communism has fully taken its place in a society.

Witchcraft[19] is another aspect of Black Lives Matter; invoking spirits[20] of dead civil rights leaders and other black people killed. This comes from the leadership of BLM who admit to ancient African and Eastern pagan rituals of conjuring up spirits and praying to certain pagan gods. This aspect of BLM may not mean much to non-Christian blacks, but as of 2020, 79% of black Americans identify as Christian, and the bible prohibits witchcraft.[21] Yes, the bible very clearly speaks against the occult; yet the messages of BLM seem to have made its way into many mainstream churches—black and otherwise.

Two of the most important reasons why BLM has made its way into churches:

    • Many mainstream churches have embraced liberation theology,[22] which is an anti-biblical movement that makes Jesus into a radical political revolutionary seeking to overthrow the rich rather than G-d incarnate who came to save humanity from eternal death.
    • Mainstream churches are unaware of the witchcraft that underlies BLM.

    To the second point, if more black churches knew about this, many of them would, at minimum, quickly make a distinction between them supporting the phrase and the movement, and denounce the movement as a satanic, communist movement painted in black face to gain black support. Many black churches do a lot of good for their communities, so the question, “what can we do if we can’t support BLM?” is easily answered by black pastors and ministers across the country.

Again, this is not a discussion about whether or not black lives matter; that discussion tends to be a binary distraction from the deeper threat that BLM poses to the black community. But one does not have to take my word for it; get off social media and go to a black church. Step into a low income black neighborhood. Go to a barbershop. Ask people how they feel about the issues raised here. I guarantee you the answers you will receive will be much more disparate than the leadership of BLM would have you think.

When Cullors claims that she and her colleagues are trained Marxists, the question that should be asked is “trained by whom?” Who is it that is teaching these tried and failed doctrines to black American leaders? And even more importantly than who, why is this happening?

Since the 1960s, there have been successful attempts to destabilize the black community. Ironically, this was not achieved through slavery or Jim Crow, as black communities stayed intact even more so because of those horrors inflicted on us. No, this was achieved through making us dependent on the US government. When school integration was being discussed and debated at length in the 1940s and 1950s, one of the concerns black people had with it was that “integration” would really mean that black students would go to white schools, be taught by white teachers, and would not learn about their own history as they had been for decades at that point mostly thanks to Booker T. Washington and Julius Rosenwald.[23] Those concerns became a reality, as that is exactly what happened in 1954 in the Brown v. Board of Education case. When segregation was deemed unconstitutional, the black schools were closed down, abandoned, and many were demolished, and black kids joined the white schools to make them integrated. Furthermore, black teachers lost their jobs as the white schools kept their teaching staff. I am not making a case for segregation. One would have to inquire, however, as to why it seems black people were the only ones who had to make real concessions.

Nonetheless, what started out as a movement for black Americans to be treated as equals turned into the destruction of black self-determination and joining us to an educational system that is now teaching the very Marxist principles[24] many of us reject. Black Lives Matter as an organization is just another iteration of that destruction; the only difference is that the Marxist agenda has garnered support from well-meaning, albeit misguided black leaders. In fact, many of the protests that have turned into riots have targeted black owned businesses[25] and black business districts.[26] Some black business[27] owners have spoken up[28] about what they see as an effort that further hampers our community.

Some have argued that the rioting and looting is being done by Antifa[29] rioters and other privileged white kids who usually are not even from the places where they are rioting. In some cases, that is true.[30] It is even true that in those places, black people are trying to stop the Antifa rioters from destroying property. However, it is also true that some of the rioting is being done by BLM rioters. And other than the ones trying to stop white rioters, none of the rioting is being roundly condemned, but encouraged by onlookers and social justice warriors who claim that “it’s just property,” “they have insurance,” or “Martin Luther King said that ‘a riot is the language of the unheard.'” By the way, though that last statement is true, what many conveniently leave out is that in the same speech, just a paragraph up, Dr. King said that “riots are socially destructive and self-defeating,” and that he would continue to condemn them. He understood why riots were happening, and sought to get his white brothers and sisters to understand, but he in no way condoned or excused it. King knew that among many things, riots would set us back.

That is exactly what any social justice movement will do to us so long as they use Marxism and Communism as their guiding principles: they will set us back. Black Lives Matter is a loud minority, and it is time for the quiet majority to speak out. It is the only way that we can move forward.

By 1920 the Ottoman Empire

“By 1920 the Ottoman Empire had exercised undisputed sovereignty over Palestine for 400 years. In Article 95 of the treaty of Sevres, that sovereignty was transferred to England in trust for a national homeland for the jews. The local Arabs had never exercised sovereignty over Palestine and so they lost nothing. Their rights were fully protected by a provisio in the grant: ‘…it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine…’ The proviso has been fully observed by the Israelis. Since 1950 the Arabs have built some 261 new settlements in Judea and Samaria — more than twice as many as the Jews, but you never hear of them. They fill them with Arabs from Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan and by the grace of God they become Palestinians. Allahu Akbar! The Arabs call Judea “the West Bank’ because they would look silly claiming that Jews are illegally living in Judea.”
(Comment by Wallace Brand on Martin Peretz “Narrative Dissonance” The New Republic, July 1, 2009.)

… during the late 1940s

“… during the late 1940s, more than 40 million refuges around the world were resettled, except for one people. They [Palestinian arabs] remain defined as refugees, wallowing 60 years later in 59 UNRWA refugee camps, financed by $400 million contributed annually by nations of the world to nurture the promise of the “right of return” to Arab neighborhoods and Arab villages from 1948 that no longer exist.”
(Noam Bedein, Jerusalem Post, January 6, 2009.)

The total for all the 22 Arab League countries

The total for all the 22 Arab League countries is 6,145,389 square miles(SM). By comparison, all 50 states of the United States have a total of 3,787,318 SM. Israel has 8,463 SM, about one-sixth of that of the State of Michigan. Iran, Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan are Muslim but not Arab and are not included.
World Arab population: 300 million; World Jewish population: 13.6 million; Israel’s Jewish population: 5.4 million.

Two Imperatives

Two Imperatives: “To ensure its long term survivability as the Jewish nation-state, Israel has to deal effectively with two imperatives: The Geographic and the Demographic. The first imperative calls for Israeli control (i.e. sovereignty) over all the territory east of the coastal plain up to the Jordan River—to prevent intolerable risks to its physical survival; the second imperative calls for significant reduction of the Arab presence in the territory under Jewish sovereignty to forestall the emergence of an intolerable demographic threat to its dominant Jewish character.” (Martin Sherman; see here and here.)

How dreadful are the curses

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia [rabies] in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

“A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property — either as a child, a wife, or a concubine — must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

“Individual Moslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.” (Winston Churchill, The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan, Vol II, pages 248-250, 1899.)

Re Israel’s irrevocable ownership of Israel

Re Israel’s irrevocable ownership of Israel, Samaria, Judea, the Golan and Gaza: “Nothing that Israel’s legal system says can change the facts that: (1) the legal binding document is the Mandate of the League of Nations and (2) the obligations of the Mandate are valid in perpetuity.”  (Professor Julius Stone)
