Sometimes words fail me

This has been on my mind for a couple of days, but I haven't had the time to put my thoughts down properly. At this point, I don't think I can really verbalize how I feel about this. It's beyond my comprehension.

Yesterday I was perusing LGF when I came across a post about an article printed in a (somewhat) local college paper. Here is the article, printed in the Oak Leaf, Santa Rosa Junior College's student paper (behold the author's mastery of the English language):

Is Anti-Semitism Ever The Result Of Jewish Behavior?
By Kevin McGuire

Israel is the largest and most dangerous terrorist organization in the world. Israel is currently and has been historically involved in a genocidal war against the Arab world.

The Zionist Jews believe they are the 'chosen people' of god and that the world was given to them and is their possession.

The Zionist Jews want to establish a Jewish holy land with no non-Jews present.

They currently occupy Israel but are constantly trying to expand their borders with their superior military power over their Arab neighbors.

No fewer than 2,265 Palestinians have been murdered by the Israelis in the last three years since September 28, 2000.

Many of these victims were children, 22.8% were less than 18 years old and 12.8% (that's 291 killed) were less than 15 years old (http://www.palestinemonitor.org/). The Israelis carry out these attacks with armored tanks, helicopter gun ships and fully automatic rifles. The Palestinians must defend themselves with rocks. A typical plan of attack involves ramming an Israeli tank through the home of a Palestinian family and shooting anyone who happens to survive, including children. Then, once the cleansing process has been completed, the town is re-occupied with so called "Jewish settlers". This attitude of racial hatred and genocide is also reflected in the Torah: "Destroy all of the land; beat down their pillars and break their statues and waste all of their high places, cleansing the land and dwelling in it, for I have given it to you for a possession" Numbers 33:52,53. Israel is in violation of far more international laws than Iraq. Although bound by the same laws as Iraq, Israel is 'allowed' not only to possess chemical and genocidal race-specific Anti-Arab biological weapons, but they also have over 300 known nuclear bombs. These weapons, being held in the hands of proven Israeli terrorists, pose a much greater threat to world peace than all of the other terrorist organizations combined. This threat is partially to be blamed on us as American citizens, for doing nothing to prevent it. The Jewish war of genocide is being funded by us, the American tax payer. Since 1973, Israel has officially received $2,500,000,000 in US Foreign aid. Divide that by the current US population and it's over $5,700 paid per US citizen. On average Israel receives $6.3 billion per year, or $17 million per day. (http://www.sustaincampaign.org/).

US aid to Israel makes up a full quarter of the Israeli annual budget. In addition to money, we also supply them with military gifts, such as F16 fighter jets, Apache helicopters, gun ships, tanks, machine guns, missiles and bullets. Without the heavy US aid to Israel that they are currently receiving Israel would no longer be able to continue its program of genocide.

Each of us contributes directly to the Israeli holocaust waged against the people of Palestine and we each personally purchase the intense Arab hatred for America which caused the 9/11 attacks.

American funding of Jewish genocide is not only felt by Arabs in the Middle East. On September 11, 2001 our nation was targeted by Arab terrorists not because they 'hate our freedoms', but because we are supplying the bullets that kill their children. Not only are we forced to pay a serious amount of money to fund the Jewish holy war which benefits America in no way, but American lives are also being sacrificed in service to Israel. Our national 'leaders' say nothing, do nothing, and deny the facts. Israel is the most powerful and dangerous terrorist organization in the world and they have hi-jacked America. Our spineless national 'leaders' refuse to even discuss the Israel issue because the Israeli-American lobby in Washington DC, funded by Zionist Jews, is the most powerful lobby in existence, wielding even more power than the NRA.

It is now politically incorrect to question our Israeli policy, because any resistance to demands by Jews is anti-Semitism and that is "hate," the label politicians fear most. Our corrupt weakling politicians know that any mention of the Israel problem will be career suicide. They place their own selfish, greedy career and power interests over those of our national interests and the interests of the American people.

In closing, here is a 1998 quote from Osama Bin Laden:

"So we tell the Americans as people, and we tell the mothers of soldiers and American mothers in general that if they value their lives and the lives of their children, to find a nationalist government that will look after their interests and not the interests of the Jews."

The continuation of tyranny will bring the fight to America, as Ramzi Yousef and others did. This is my message to the American people: to look for a serious government that looks out for their interests and does not attack others, their lands, or their honor.

And my word to American journalists is not to ask why we did that, but ask what their government has done that forced us to defend ourselves. It is our duty to lead people to the light."

Catchy title, eh?

This masterpiece starts off with a great declaration, and only gets better. I cannot respond to each inaccuracy or blatant racist statement contained in this column, as the entire column is a pile of pooh (trying hard to keep this G-rated). Not to mention that this person's grasp (or lack thereof) of the English language makes this difficult to read. But I'm going to address a couple of things that show the unabashed anti-semitism (er, racism) contained in this column.

Israel is the largest terrorist organization in the world, committing genocide? Cannot and will not respond to that. Applying the characteristics of the aggressor to the victim is typical of the rubbish propaganda put forth by the anti-Semitic freakazoids. This author has taken a page out of CAIR's book.

If this guy knew a thing about Israel, he would realize that people in Israel enjoy religious freedom that mirrors the freedom we enjoy in the USA. In fact, Muslims in Israel have more religious freedom than they do in their Arab nations. Take a look at any tourist book on Israel: the majority of the landmarks have nothing to do with Judaism, and the most recognizable landmark is a mosque. For a country practicing genocide and forbidding all but Jews, they sure are doing a lousy job. But I don't expect this cretin to understand something so obvious.

The language this guy uses is inflammatory and ignorant. Note "They currently occupy Israel". Occupy "Israel"? Hmm... And Israel has indiscriminately murdered over 2,000 Palestinians, because their soldiers need targets for live-fire practice and it fits well with their grand dream of Arab genocide. Kinda like two birds with one stone, no? All the while the Israelis have nothing to worry about when they get on the bus to go to work every morning, and not one Israeli has been killed by terrorists in the past two years. Not a one. /sarcasm

I can't go on. Every time I read this, it gets more ridiculous. The ignorance and hatred displayed by these kinds of "journalists" is awe-inspiring. I didn't think it existed to this extent, yet it's in my backyard. This snot-nosed, spoiled brat, self-acclaimed white supremacist needs to get his head out of that dark, smelly place. When regurgatating such inciteful and hateful propaganda, perhaps he should consider the source. This guy cites racist and biased websites, quotes OBL, and spews every single anti-semitic myth ever created ("genocidal race-specific Anti-Arab biological weapons"!!!!).

It blows my mind that people continue to buy into the propaganda as if it's truth. The lack of a reaction when the racism and hate is directed towards Jews scares me. If this was directed at Hispanics, Blacks, or !Allah forbid! Muslims, the reaction would have been much more severe. Replace "Jew" with "Muslim", "Zionist" with "Islamist", and "Israel" with "Saudi Arabia". Now imagine. This article never would have made the pages of this paper. It would have been deemed "insensitive" to Muslim Americans.

On the other hand....

The backlash to an Op/Ed cartoon in March at the University of Maryland's student paper was harsh and over the top. In case you've forgotten, here is the cartoon:

Daniel J. Friedman--The Diamondback

The responses to this cartoon were very loud, and this made national news. People were offended that somebody actually expressed an opinion: that standing in front of a bulldozer is stupid and can get you killed. They defended the actions of a person who was interfering with the security operations of a country under terrorist siege, and labeled her a martyr "for peace". They disregarded her peaceful US flag burning display for the Palestinian children, because that doesn't fit the image of a peace lover. They also labeled the cartoonist a Zionist racist (assumed he is Jewish by his name). The cartoon was an Op/Ed. The author took a news story and applied an opinion to it. All hell broke loose.

These same people are defending this article. It is full of factual errors, ommissions and racist urban legends, and the author disregards any suffering of the Israelis. It is inciteful. It takes one twisted-truth side of the issue and presents it as "the way it is", while citing questionable sources. It smacks of anti-Semitism (saying you hate Israel but don't mind Jews is like saying you hate France but don't mind the French. Sorry, but the two are intrinsically related.) The lack of journalistic integrity in this piece is astounding. This guy's hopes of a career in journalism should be pretty slim by now, unless he wants to join the ranks of Peter Arnett and Robert Fisk in the dungeons of BS journalism. I'm sure they'd welcome him with open arms.

Worse than this particular article is that there are many more who believe this tripe. And, according to what is happening around the world, targeting a group or a culture that is white, generally educated, and has a history of success is fair game. That is truly frightening.
