THE ISRAELI-ARAB CONFLICT: HATING & KILLING JEWS
By Alan Caruba
According to the 2001 World Almanac, there are 1,974,181,000 Christians worldwide. There are 1,155,109,000 Muslims. There are 356,270,000 Buddhists. There are 225,421,000 Hindus. There are only 14,313,000 Jews.
One need not ask if religion is to blame, for the answer is obviously YES! It is Islam's endemic hatred of Jews which fills the streets of Israel with blood these days. The Muslim Arabs in Israel/Palestine and the Muslim Arab nations of the Middle East have attacked Israel since the day it announced its sovereignty. All of this is part of the worldwide Islamic Jihad that is aimed, not just at Israel, but at the United States of America, Great Britain, western and central Europe, the Balkans, Russia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
A columnist, Fatma Abdallah Mahmoud, writing in the Egyptian government daily newspaper, Al-Aljbar, expressed the wish that Adolf Hitler had had time to finish his insane Holocaust. His article, titled "Accursed Forever and Ever," stated:
"These accursed ones are a catastrophe for the human race. They are virus of the generation, doomed to a life of humiliation and wretchedness until Judgement Day. They are also accursed because they repeatedly tried to murder the Prophet Muhammad. They threw a stone at him, but missed. Another time, they tried to mix poison in his food, but Providence saved him from their treachery and their crimes. Thus, the Jews are accursed--the Jews of our time, those who preceded them, and those who will come after them, if any Jews come after them."
May I suggest this is sheer madness? It expresses an incarnate evil. There will never be any peace in the Middle East so long as this madness is preached daily from the pulpits of mosques and in the madrasses, the Islamic schools where it is taught to Muslim children and youth. This madness came to the U.S.A. on Septermer 11, 2001, and is brewing in Europe. Any religion that sanctions suicide as an acceptable form of murdering Jews and other "imfidels" has abandoned any claim on morality. No religion that justifies hijacking commercial jets to fly them into buildings has any claim on the hearts of decent people anywhere. The financial support the Saudis, the Iraqis, the Iranians, the European Union, and others are giving to the Palestinian Arabs indicts those providing the support as accessories to the crimes of terrorism, murder, and subversion. This also applies to those who provide American taxpayer dollars as foreign aid to the Islamic terrorists, despite that aid being identified as given for "humanitarian" purposes.
Israel will retaliate. The United Nations has just passed another resolution condemning Israel for seeking to defend its people. The U.S. government continues to insist Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon negotiate with the father of all terrorists, Yasser Arafat. Only Israeli restraint prevents the Palestinian terrorists who seized the Church of the Nativity, the most sacred place for Christians, from turning it into the site of a bloodbath.
The major fault lines of history are opening to reveal that evil is once again loose in the world, as it was in the days preceding World War II. The pursuit of U.S. foreign policies that have not worked in the past and will not work in the future prolongs the agony. It is the worldwide Islamic Jihad that inflicts the pain. It is the United Nations' drive to establish itself as a global government that threatens all nations. It is bureaucratic Socialism/Statism seeking, as always, to repress any dissent that portends the future, if we fail to protect our freedoms and extend them throughout the world. The "greatest generation" is passing from our world. We need a new generation to pass on the torch of liberty.
Anti-Semitism is the calling card of all despots. The Jews of Israel and around the world have vowed they will not be the victims of the hatred exerted against them. Recalling the Holocaust, they have vowed "Never again." Men and women of good will should take the vow with them. Until Jews can live in peace, no people, no individual of the six billion of us who share the Earth, has any hope of living in peace.
