Israel's front-line thugs
Consistent stands against the depravity of the West Bank's lawless
settlers are the only way to put an end to their crimes

News that leftwing activists are facing increased pressure to stay out
of the West Bank is a worrying development in local politics,
especially at a time when settler attacks on Palestinians are on the
increase. Rather than clamp down on the settlers perpetrating the
violence, the authorities are pursuing a path of locking the doors to
the outside world and pretending that nothing at all is amiss.

Not all settlers are inherently violent; to portray their entire
subgroup as such is as disingenuous as claiming that all Palestinians
are fanatics just because there are radical elements in their midst.
However, just because all settlers shouldn't be tarred with the same
brush doesn't excuse the inaction and indifference on the part of the
Israeli authorities when faced with the crimes of the extremists among
the settler population.

Of late, there has been a steady stream of brutal assaults carried out
by settlers against their Palestinian neighbours in the West Bank,
right under the noses of the lackadaisical army. The phenomenon is,
sadly, nothing new; what has brought the story back into the spotlight
are the efforts of human rights groups, such as B'Tselem to film the
violence and document the shocking reality on the ground – which is
why, it seems, the authorities are so keen to clamp down on their
activity in the region.

However, the settlers don't confine their vindictive and vicious
attacks to Palestinians; they are not averse to attacking their Jewish
peers either. Two recent incidents amply demonstrated the extent to
which the Wild West Bank has become bandit country, with no sheriff's
posse daring to stand up to the rogue elements holding the region at

First up was a Breaking the Silence tour to Hebron, whose bus was
surrounded by jeering settlers who blocked their path and showered
those aboard with abuse. Instead of intervening on behalf of the
victims of the threatening mob, the police "did not manage to disperse
the mob", "no arrests were made", and in the end they simply ordered
the tour group to return from whence they came.

Then another Breaking the Silence group came under attack from settler
vigilantes, who doused the participants with boiling water after
confronting them in the streets of Hebron and heckling them with cries
of "traitor", and other such hostile invective.

For anyone who's been to Hebron, Kiryat Arba, or any of the
settlements which play home to the extremist hardcore of the settler
movement, incidents such as those in Hebron, or the assaults in
Susiya, are by no means surprising. Being subjected to settler abuse
and attack is part and parcel of the experience for Israeli left-
wingers and Palestinian locals alike. Sordid as it may be, the depths
to which many settlers have sunk is merely a symptom of the malaise
infecting Israeli society, rather than the cause.

Radical elements exist in every religion, in every ethnic group, and
in every country. Human nature dictates that there will always be
those for whom conforming to societal norms is antithetic to their
bigoted, boorish ways – but that is when those charged with keeping
order in society are meant to be put into play. In Israel, the state
apparatus should, in theory, be mobilised to full effect to quell any
illegal activity, whether carried out by right- or left-winger, Jew or

The security forces are, of course, by no means scared to act when it
suits them. Palestinian demonstrations are routinely put down with
excessive force: rocks flung by pre-teens are countered with rubber
bullets, tear gas, and – often – live and indiscriminate fire. But
when it comes to clamping down on violence emanating from the settler
community, a different set of rules apply, and the authorities'
reeking hypocrisy is exposed as endemic to the way in which they view
the different strands of Israeli society.

I've witnessed the double standards for myself countless times, from
the kid-glove treatment my platoon used when evicting the settlers of
Homesh to the heavy-handed brutality meted out by the border police in
the Palestinian villages of Bil'in and Nilin. What is explained away
as "necessary in the interests of security" in one situation is turned
on its head in another; softly-softly replacing an all-out show of
force, simply because the assailants in question are religious Jews
rather than Muslims.

The longer the duplicity is allowed to thrive in the military and
political spheres in Israel, the worse the violence will get on the
part of the settlers' lunatic fringe. Giving them carte blanche to
engage in low-level crime only encourages them to see how much more
they can get away with, in their attempts to intimidate and bully
anyone they see as against them in their holy war.

There's unlikely to be a sea-change any time soon in the upper
echelons of Israeli politics, given their tacit support of the
settlement enterprise in turning a blind eye to illegal construction,
and the army's providing of military support to settlers the length
and breadth of the West Bank. However, there has to be a concerted
effort on the parts of all with an interest in human rights to follow
B'Tselem's lead and apply sufficient pressure on Israeli judges to see
court cases through to a satisfactory conclusion.

Only by taking consistent and courageous stands against the depravity
of the lawless settlers will there be an end to their crimes. The
police force and army seem uninterested in calling them to heel, or
allowing activists to bear witness to their crimes; it can only be
hoped that the legal system is made of sterner, and more moral, stuff
than them.

our nation on September 11, 2001 used a total of 364 aliases.)

Islam is a supremacist political ideology. The Arabs, especially the
Quraish tribe, are, according to Islam, the master race of the
universe. Other Muslims are their helpers, and the rest of us are
called kuffars. According to the sharia law, Arab women cannot marry
non-Arab men because Allah has chosen the Arabs above others. The word
kuffar is as pejorative as the word nigger; it means a non-Muslim
beast in a human form. Muslims who treat the kuffars as human beings
are apostates, so they must be killed, preferably by their own
families. (According to the hadith, a special reward in paradise is
reserved for the killers of apostates.) Muslims broke world records of
genocide (270 million victims), slavery, religiously sanctioned rape,
abuse of human rights, and prohibition of scientific inquiry. Two
years after Adolf Hitler became the Chancellor, the Haavara Agreement
permitted emigration of German Jews to Palestine. Haj Amin El-
Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem, persuaded Adolf Eichmann and Adolf
Hitler that Jews should be killed before they flee Germany. Islam
forbids Muslim emigration to the lands of the infidels because a
Muslim minority cannot enslave the infidel majority. Despite this
prohibition Muslims emigrate to the West, not as migrants, but as
conquerors. They live in sharia mini-states and expand these mini-
states by terrorizing infidel neighbors and driving them out. Any
society not willing to subjugate itself to Islamic authority is,
according to Islam, in a state of war, or Dar al-Harb, with Islam.
Arabic proverb says "first comes Saturday, then Sunday." It means that
Arabs are going to exterminate Jews before they exterminate
Christians. It also means that Israel is the first line of defense
against Islam. Another Arabic proverb (al-fikr kuffar) says that the
very act of thinking (fikr) makes one an infidel (kuffar). Islam, like
cancer, has the sole purpose of making more of itself. It will kill
our civilization unless it is cut, poisoned, and radiated into

Best ways to deal with Muslim invasion of the West:
1. Deportation to countries of their origin.
2. Deportation to Muslim-only towns guarded by the police.
3. One child per family policy reinforced with sterilization.
4. Mandatory lessons about Muslim atrocities.
5. Very strict control of Muslim clergy (mullahs).
6. Sermons (khutbah) and religious instructions must be conducted in
the local language, rather than Arabic, so that hate speech can be
easily identified.

“I have been made victorious with terror.” - Muhammad (according to
Bukhari: 4.52.220)

"Human blood is the life-line of Islam, violence its hallmark, and
hate its foundation. In the beginning, Islam lives on the blood of
infidels. When that is unavailable, or becomes difficult, Islam must
cannibalize itself." - Abul Kasem

In a poll taken for the Davos World Economic Forum, stunning numbers
of Europeans fear a "threat" from Muslims with whom they "interact":
79 percent of Danes, 67 percent of Italians, 68 percent of Spaniards,
65 percent of Swedes and 59 percent of Belgians. source:

Islam is already the fastest-growing religion in Europe. Driven by
immigration and high birthrates, the number of Muslims on the
continent has tripled in the last 30 years. Most demographers forecast
a similar or even higher rate of growth in the coming decades. source:

Europe’s Muslim population is set to increase from around 13% today to
between 22% and 37% of the population by 2025. source:

The average European couple now has fewer than 1.4 babies, compared to
3.6 babies born to the average Muslim immigrant couple in Europe.
Across Western Europe 16 to 20 percent of babies are being born into
Muslim families… By 2025, one-third of all European children will be
born to Muslims… In Italy, 95% of all rapists are Muslims. Eighty-five
percent of all murderers are Muslims… France will have a Muslim
majority in less than 25 years! Another telling statistic is that
although the Muslims are 12% of France's population, 70 percent of a
total of 60,775 prisoners in France are Muslims! All of France's urban
suburbs are being roamed by Muslim black African or Arabic gangs… A
very high proportion of French Muslims are in the underclass, that
segment of the population that relies not so much on education and
work as on welfare and predatory activities. In fact, over one
thousand Muslim neighborhoods are under monitoring throughout France.
Seven hundred of those Muslim neighborhoods are listed as "violent"
and nearly 400 hundred are listed as "very violent." Violence ranges
from rape (95% of rapists are Muslim), murder (85% of murderers are
Muslim), theft and looting of cars (58% committed by Muslims) and
street fighting to assault on teachers and civil servants… source:

Muslim per-capita arrest rate on terrorism-related charges in the
United States is 2.5 times higher than in Europe… If the United
States, despite the much better socio-economic standing of its
Muslims, suffers from 2.5 times more terrorism per capita than does
Europe, socio-economic improvements are unlikely to solve Europe's
problems. http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=932DF90B-4644-49A7-A754-C263BF74DE9B

"Like children playing with dynamite, Western intellectuals,
journalists, and diplomats fantasize that they are achieving results
in the Middle East with their words, promises, apologies, money, and
concessions. Yet how can such innocents cope… with polities and
societies whose basic ruling ethos is that of the serial killer?… Can
anyone really expect a stable society capable of progress in Pakistan
when a large majority of the population expresses admiration for Usama
bin Ladin? And what about the Saudi system where, as one local writer
put it, the big Usama put into practice what the little Usama learned
in a Saudi school?… The radical forces in the region are not expecting
to retain or gain power by negotiating, compromising, or being better
understood. They believe they are going to shoot their way into power
or, just as good, accept the surrender of those they have intimidated.
That is why so much of the Western analysis and strategies for dealing
with the region are a bad joke." - Barry Rubin, source:

"Europe is being targeted for deliberate colonization by Muslim
states, and with coordinated efforts aimed at our Islamization and the
elimination of our freedoms. We are being subject to a foreign
invasion, and aiding and abetting a foreign invasion in any way
constitutes treason. If non-Europeans have the right to resist
colonization and desire self-determination then Europeans have that
right, too. And we intend to exercise it." - "Fjordman" source:

It is Islamic violence which threatens Holland and all of Europe.
Exactly as in the 1930s, it is the weakness of European leaders which
allows the threat to grow. Just as the League of Nations refused to
stand up to fascism in pre-WW2 Europe, the United Nations grovels
before Islam today. source: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/2414

"There does not exist an identifiable body of Muslims, substantive in
number or an outright majority, who could be described as "moderate"
by their repudiation of Muslim extremists. Violence has been an
integral part of Muslim history, irrespective of whether it is
sanctioned by Islam, and Muslims who unhesitatingly use violence to
advance their political ambitions have created a climate within their
faith culture that any Muslim who questions such practice is then
deemed apostate and subject to harm. Consequently, what might pass for
"moderate" Muslims, the large number of Muslims unaccounted for as to
what they think, in practical terms constitute a forest within which
extremists are incubated, nurtured, given ideological and material
support, and to which they return for sanctuary." - Salim Mansur

"A Muslim apostate once suggested to me a litmus test for Westerners
who believe that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance: try
making that point on a street corner in Ramallah, or Riyadh, or
Islamabad, or anywhere in the Muslim world. He assured me you wouldn't
live five minutes." source: http://citizenwarrior2.blogspot.com/2007/10/taqiyya-religious-deception.html

“Muslims who share the same goals as Osama bin Laden but are pursuing
them through non-violent means are celebrated by gullible Westerners
as moderates.” - Robert Spencer

65.2% Muslims favor Caliphate, 65.5% Muslims favor strict Sharia law
in every Islamic country: http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=28064
(Only the Caliph can wage offensive jihad and offensive jihad is his
main duty.)

"To say that moderate Islam is the solution to radical Islam implies
several things: that moderate Islam exists; that it represents the
true (though perhaps currently disregarded) norm of Islam; and that
radical Islam is a departure from that norm." - Lawrence Auster

At what point is it okay to fight dictators like Saddam or the al
Qaeda terrorists who want to take his place? It turns out that the
answer, according to Gandhi, is NEVER. During World War II, Gandhi
penned an open letter to the British people, urging them to surrender
to the Nazis. Later, when the extent of the holocaust was known, he
criticized Jews who had tried to escape or fight for their lives as
they did in Warsaw and Treblinka. “The Jews should have offered
themselves to the butcher’s knife,” he said. “They should have thrown
themselves into the sea from cliffs.” “Collective suicide,” he told
his biographer, “would have been heroism.” source:
