Who knew that these people still existed?

Here is a flyer that was recently posted around the campus of University of Boulder, Colorado. The administration has yet to take action, but I would hope that given the nature of the flyer, they'll be quick to expell anyone involved with the campus National Alliance club. For anyone who is not farmiliar with the National Alliance, their hatred of Jews and anything ethnic rivals that of Hamas and the KKK. I can't believe what post-secondary education is coming to. It sickens me to think that I have friends attending university in such a hostile environment. If you'd like to see the PDF file for this flyer, click here, although it takes a while to load. Make sure you keep track of your score and see your results at the bottom!

I HATE the government I HATE the government I HATE the government....because they fund this crap!

I make it a habit to study my enemy and learn what they are saying about my people. As one would expect, my endeavours lead me to such horrific sites are Hamas, Hezbollah and CBC Newsworld. This morning, while scouring the deep, dark and putrid recesses of the CBC's site, I came across their in-depth look at the conflict between the "Children of Abraham".

The articles are written with such contempt for Jews and Israelis, that one has to wonder how this crap was ever sent to an editor and okayed for publication. Here are a few snipets. You'll notice that NOT EVEN ONCE does this guy attempt to place any blame for the situation on the Palestinians. Everytime he gives another reason for the violence, the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the Israelis.

On that visit, I met Yasser Arafat...His naive belief at the time was that one day there would be a democratic state in Palestine where Jews and Arabs could live together in peace. He underestimated Israeli determination and overestimated the chances for peace. Moreover, his supporters made extremist statements that undermined any possibility of communication between the two sides. Umm...his supporters made extreme statements? What? Signing a document allowing for the targeted killing of Israeli children is not an extreme statement?

The Palestinians were a people in despair over the loss of their homes and property...

...The tragedy of the Holocaust heightened dramatically the need for a place of refuge for Jews. It made it easier for the rest of the world to overlook the fact that an indigenous people existed in Palestine...

...An unyielding hard-line on the expansion of Jewish settlements on Palestinian land has been the pretext for violence...

...The enthusiastic approval by Jewish settlers of the massacre of Muslim worshipers at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron caused deep-seated resentment amongst Palestinians and raised the hatred wall even higher...

...They (the settlements) appear to be one of the main obstacles to peace...

...Then, in September of 2000, Ariel Sharon...stirred Palestinian emotions by making a provocative visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

...there are times when the most powerful must take bold steps to succour the weak. For a great many Israeli and Diaspora Jews, it's time for Israel to heed the advice of the country's moderates.

I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.....

A group of young supporters of the Hezbollah militia with painted faces carry toy guns during a demonstration in suburban Beirut, Lebanon, Friday, Sept. 27, 2002. Tens of thousands of Hezbollah supporters demonstrated to mark the second anniversary of the Palestinian intefadeh, or uprising.

Why do they call these children "young Hezbollah supporters"? These kids don't know what this war is all about!
The folks at MEMRI bring us this fine selection of some of the most recents sermons by Muslim "clerics" (what a joke). I think that I will just extract some quotes and let the readers be the judge. Suffice to say that most of these were made in mosques situated in Saudi Arabia, supposedly "moderate" (imagine what the extremists must be spewing out!) and supposedly a friend of the "west". Hey, with friends like this, who needs enemies? Here is goes.
"The Pope's recent visit to Syria, to the Al-Umawi mosque is, without a doubt, another manifestation of that call. The call by [the Pope] - may Allah punish him as he deserves - to the people of the [different] religions in Syria to live in peaceful coexistence is nothing more than an audacious call for the unification of religions, in accordance with the principle of human religious harmony… This Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, and those behind him calling for the unification of the religions, are the descendants of the Spanish inquisitors who tortured the Muslims most abominably… They are the descendants of those who led the Crusades to the Islamic East, in which thousands of Muslims were killed and their wives taken captive in uncountable numbers. They are the perpetrators of the massacres in Bosnia-Herzegovina… in Kosovo, in Indonesia, and in Chechnya… Can we expect compassion from these murderous wolves? What made the Pope go on his visit was his dissatisfaction with the robbing of the Muslims' lands; he wanted also to rob their religion, so that they lose both this world and the Hereafter…"
"The Jews are the objects of Allah's [promised] wrath, while the Christians deviate from the path of righteousness… The Koran described the Jews as a nation cursed by Allah, a nation at which he was angry - some of whom he turned into apes and pigs…"

Ah...Islam...this great peace loving, liberating religion:
"If the infidels live among the Muslims, in accordance with the conditions set out by the Prophet -there is nothing wrong with it provided they pay Jizya[10] to the Islamic treasury. Other conditions are… that they do not renovate a church or a monastery, do not rebuild ones that were destroyed, that they feed for three days any Muslim who passes by their homes… that they rise when a Muslim wishes to sit, that they do not imitate Muslims in dress and speech, nor ride horses, nor own swords, nor arm themselves with any kind of weapon; that they do not sell wine, do not show the cross, do not ring church bells, do not raise their voices during prayer, that they shave their hair in front so as to make them easily identifiable, do not incite anyone against the Muslims, and do not strike a Muslim… If they violate these conditions, they have no protection."
And now, about the Jews:
"Their tongues never cease lying, [disseminating] abomination and obscenity. About Allah they said: 'His hands are tied… He is poor and we are wealthy.' They brought great disasters upon Jesus and his mother, and of the Prophet Muhammad they said: 'He is a trickster and a liar.' Curses were laid upon them, one after another, and punishments too… The Jews preached permissiveness and corruption, as they hid behind false slogans like freedom and equality, humanism and brotherhood. They kill Muslim youth, entice the [Muslim] woman with shameful deeds, and act to lure others through her… They defile the minds of adolescents by arousing their urges… they are envious of the Muslim woman who conceals herself and protects her honor; for this reason, they preach to her to expose herself and throw off her values… Their goal is to destroy the Muslim family, to shatter religious and social ties and foundations… They are cowards in battle… they flee from death and fear fighting… They love life…"
Love that last bit...Loving life is bad?
Another good one:
"Read history and you will understand that the Jews of yesterday are the evil forefathers of the even more evil Jews of today: infidels, falsifiers of words, calf worshippers, prophet murderers, deniers of prophecies… the scum of the human race, accursed by Allah, who turned them into apes and pigs… These are the Jews - an ongoing continuum of deceit, obstinacy, licentiousness, evil, and corruption…"
I think they proved their point. We really should all convert to this kind, peace-loving religion...NOT!
Naomi Ragen reprints this heart-wrenching account of a visit to the family of a 6-year old little girl who was murdered at point-blank by Palestinian terrorists in front of her mother, in bed. Moral equivalency anyone? Jean Cretin, poverty is what is motivating, even excusing these guys, right?

The Prettiest Girl
J. Philip Rosen, 26 September 2002

This year on Yom Kippur, as in the previous 12 years, I watched most of my friends walk out of the synagogue as I prepared for the unending pain of the Yizkor services. During Yizkor those of us who have lost relatives pray to remember the dearly departed and for their souls. It
always seemed heartbreaking to me that the synagogues divide into two for the Yizkor services, i.e. those who have living parents, siblings and children walking outside for idle chatter and friendship while those unfortunate enough to have lost someone close to them staying inside praying and crying.
However, this year was particularly painful, more than my previous Yizkor experiences. This year, in addition to praying for my parents and my aunts and uncles and grandparents who died during the Holocaust and left no one to pray for them, I added the name of Danielle Shefi to my prayers. Danielle Shefi, as a representative of the over 600 men, women and children who were murdered in cold blood by Arab terrorist murderers led by Yassir Arafat over the past two years.
During our last solidarity mission in July of this year, our group visited the Shefi family in Adura. Mr. and Mrs. Shefi greeted us in their home in a small community on top of a hill and showed us their house. They told us that no one from outside the community had yet visited them. They led us into the tiny living room where we crowded in to watch perhaps the most heartbreaking home video I’ve ever seen - a film about the life of Danielle Shefi - very similar to a bat mitzvah video using film clips from different stages of Danielle’s life, a birthday party at 2, a performance in a play at 4, with the beautiful music of the Israeli song, “The Most Beautiful Girl in the Kindergarten Class” playing in the background. However, this bat mitzvah video didn’t end with the bat mitzvah – this bat mitzvah video ended with terrorists walking into the Shefi house on a Saturday morning, finding Mrs. Shefi and her three children, Danielle being the oldest, age 5, in the bedroom curled up in her bed. The terrorists looked at the family straight in their eyes, a mother and three babies, and shot to kill all four. Mr. Shefi told us how lucky he was (a man whose five year old daughter is murdered in cold blood is lucky?) that the rest of his family was alive and had recovered from wounds suffered as a result of the gunshots. All 55 of us sitting around the living room cried like babies as we felt even a measure of the pain of the Shefi family, as well as the pain of the families of each and every one of the victims of terrorism. The end of the film which showed the news clips on the morrow of the murder - the bedroom right upstairs from us covered wall to wall in blood, with pools of blood on the bed, our hearts were filled with an indescribable sorrow.
We are now approaching the holiday of Succot during the last days on Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah we say Yizkor once again. I ask each and every one of you to add a special thought in your Yizkor prayers, whether you stay in or go outside – a thought about the prettiest girl
in the kindergarten class and the 600 other gems that were viciously and cruelly taken from their families over the last two years in particular. At the same time I ask you to think about whether “The New Middle East” is any different from the Middle East of the 1929 Hebron massacre or from the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe during the pogroms and from the communities of Europe during the Holocaust. Jews who were/are murdered just because they are Jews – men, women and children, including the prettiest girl in the kindergarten class.
Having a bit of a quiet day? Need something to get your blood flowing? Read this, an analysis of the Hamas Charter. I think that someone should send a copy to the Canadian Government which still does not believe Hamas to be a terrorist organization.
"Allah is its goal, The Prophet its model, the Qur'an its Charter, jihad its path, and death for the cause of Allah its most sublime belief" (Article 8).
Muslims are obligated by order of the Prophet to fight and kill the Jews wherever they find them.
There are a lot more pearls in the article. Worth a read.
Interestingly enough, as pointed out by the author, the UN has never condemned this charter. If I may add, neither has Durban (of course not) and incidently neither has any of the enlightened Canadian idiots who have signed the latest petition against the war to free the Iraqis (see next post).
With so many "prominent" Canadians against the war on Iraq, this war must definitely be the right thing to do. These tree-hugging-"democrats" are like the canary in the mines...whatever cause they support, take the opposite side and you will be on the correct side of the issue. Every time.
Isn't it amazing how the Margaret Atwood, David Suzuki and standard union leaders of this world are always wrong?
These people were against the wars in the Balkans which eventually unseated Milocevitz, one of the worst mass murderers ever, for Pol Pot in Cambodia (another mass murderer on the scale of Adolf Hitler), against the war in Afghanistan (which finally freed millions of oppressed Muslims and women from unspeakable tyranny), and are now against the war on Iraq while the Iraqi people are being starved, imprisoned, tortured and executed by another monster who is now getting ready to annihilate millions with his WMD.
Who are these freaking idiots? Why do they systematically support tyrants while calling themselves "democrats"? Why don't they see the obvious, that is that countries which call themselves "democratic" most often are not? Why can't they see that force and might are the best defenders of freedom for the little guys, not social engineering?
I am convinced that social activists are not interested in fighting for the poor. Rather, they are interested in fighting against the rich. This is why they all are anti-American (they supported communist countries), anti-Israel (they support Palestinians and suicide bombings), pro-Talibans (because they were a "popular" movement) and so on.
Every time people are oppressed by a regime which claims to be "popular" or "democratic", they are right there supporting the regime, even when this regime is killing and oppressing its own people.
And I think that this is the trademark of the left. They are ready to sacrifice people's lives for their agenda of "enlightened" social engineering. And most of these "prominent" Canadians are enjoying the fruits of a society they condemn, being protected by a country they despise, while supporting the regimes which inflict misery, tyranny and death on their own people.
They ought to be ashamed, but they are not because they are so dogmatic that they'd rather see people continuously oppressed or killed rather than admitting that they are, once again on the wrong side of all issues.

What will you be wearing when Saddam bites the dust?
I've got my outift picked out!!!
Open your hearts....and your wallets
One of our readers, Ronnie Schreiber has been invited to participate in a charity bicycle ride for Alyn Hospital in Jerusalem. The ride goes from Jerusalem to Eilat and Ronnie is dying to participate. The only problem is that they want $2000 per rider in sponsorship guaranteed plus about $1500 more for expenses. If you have th means, we feel that this is definitely a worthwhile cause to support. Good Luck Ronnie!!

You can sponsor Ronnie here
It hits close to home
Some of you may remember that while I was in Israel I often logged onto the net at an internet cafe in Jerusalem's Hanevi'im street. Only one week before I arrived in Jerusalem, a bomb ripped through a Falafel stand about 4-5 doors away from the internet cafe where I spent several evenings. Today I found a picture that was taken only a few hours after the bombing. I got chills down my spine when I realized that I walked on that very sidewalk every day of my trip. It isn't until I see things like this that I realize just how REAL these bombings are.

An open letter to President Bush
A cousin of ours, Nathaniel Harari, co-host of, sent this letter to Bush. I'll post the first snipet on the site, but I urge you to check out the rest of the letter on their webpage. It is worth it!

Dear President Bush,

The attack at the Hebrew University was a tragedy for both America and Israel. In the face of it, you expressed outrage and sorrow in a very genuine way and for that, I am very thankful.

However, it is important to note the dire mistakes made in your statement as well.

In your anger, you said that this crime was perpetrated by those who hate peace. It is a natural statement which, of course, everyone shares. Yet it is very imprudent to attribute this characteristic to the Hamas.

I take issue with it because, Mr. President, the Hamas does not really hate peace. The Hamas is actually a peace-loving organization committed to the development of peace in their view, and there is no evidence to the fact that they dislike peace more than anyone else on the face of the planet.

No, Mr. President, what the Hamas hates are Jews...

Look at the site I found this morning. Their logo is absolutely priceless and seeing as their company t-shirts and mugs are so cool and my birthday is fast approaching....well you know.
Anyway, just take my word and check out the site. Make sure you sign the petition too! (We appologize for the profanity)

And here is more proof that Al Gore is a lying, left-leaning, self-important skunk (thanks to American Realpolitik) for this great find:
Al Gore: September 23, 2002
Former Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore came out strongly on Monday against any "precipitous" U.S. attack on Iraq, saying the Bush administration has embarked on a dangerous course that could alienate allies and derail the war on terror.
Al Gore: May 23, 2000 (from the Iraqi National Congress Website)
"We have maintained sanctions in the face of rising criticism, while improving the oil-to-food program to help the Iraqi people directly. We have used force when necessary. And we will not let up in our efforts to free Iraq from Saddam’s rule. Should he think of challenging us, I would strongly advise against it. As a Senator, I voted for the use of force.
As Vice President, I supported the use of force. And if entrusted with the Presidency, my resolve will never waver."

What a piece of dirt this guy is....phew...we came really close to getting this looser as President.
Note to all Bloggers...let's make sure we demolish this guy if he even comes close to announcing his candidacy for 2004.
Bow to the Warren god. Another brilliant column, this time about the so called "Bush Doctrine".
Damn...why can't I write like this?
A must read.
Yesterday, in a written document tabled with Congress, the President went considerably beyond the Congressional resolution, to articulate in much greater detail than he could in his speech at West Point in June, or the previous anticipations of it, the "Bush Doctrine" through the conflict ahead. Given the present facts of life, exposed on 9/11 -- the very real threat of sudden and annihilating attacks with biological, chemical, nuclear or even imaginatively-used conventional weapons, the U.S. must henceforth try to pre-empt. Moreover, the U.S. may be compelled to act sometimes without warning, upon intelligence information that must not be compromised, who knows, even on the territory of allies. (Canada, for example.) The stakes are actually high enough, to waive certain diplomatic niceties: for war is war.
Al Bore Gore is against the US taking unilateral action against Iraq. The reason? The US should be concentrating on one task at a time, that is, the war on terrorism.
I think the world can breath an enormous sigh of relief and thank Florida voters that this goofball did not get elected President. Interestingly, while this diluted Clinton would probably have simply sent a few Tomahawks into abandoned goat-graising fields in Afghanistan as the US sole reaction to 9/11 had he been the President, he is now strongly behind a war on terrorism that he, intellectually, would never have been able to fathom. And now this...
"Great nations persevere and then prevail," Gore said. "They do not jump from one unfinished task to another. We should remain focused on the war against terrorism."
So let's get this long as the war on terrorism is not finished, the US should not take care of any other threat. Just ignore them and focus on just the one issue. Kind of like focusing on fixing your hair after the Titanic hit the thing at a time, do you mind?
Never crossed the man's mind that maybe, maybe the war on Iraq and the war against terrorism are one and the same. Al, do you understand the concept of rogue states? Or state-sponsored terrorism? Oh sorry, I forgot that you are too busy inventing the Internet...probably have not had time to read about this hard stuff.
More antisemitic violence at Concordiarabia University in Montreal
As reported by Grasshoopa!, more antisemitic violence has become par for the course at Concordiarabia.
My question is: should Jewish students stay there and organize to finally provide a counter voice to the constant Palestinian propaganda and litany of lies and violent acts, or should Jews boycott Concordiarabia and make the University start feeling a major financial pinch for its clear pro-Palestinian and pro-violence inertia ( I am being kind here...the University has recently banned all political displays on campus to try and let things cool off but is still tolerating a pro-Palestinian information booth and nothing else...inertia? Maybe "policy" would be a more accurate term)?
I think that the University would care more if it were hit in its pocketbook. So let's start boycotting Concordiarabia right now for next year. Let's see that the University does when it is left with thousands of unused spots or even better, when it has to lower its admission standard in order to fill its roster.
A great column (as always) from Larry Miller on why the left will NEVER get the war on Iraq.
And this is our problem today with Iraq. The folks on the left have seen, over and over, Saddam Hussein refuse to allow weapons inspections, and then they insist we try it again. They have seen him, over and over, perpetrate the most evil slaughters he can manage, and then they insist we wait and see what he does. They have railed for ten years against the "horrors" of our economic sanctions, and then they insist we give sanctions a chance. And in each instance, we conservatives, moronically loyal to the theory that people can always be swayed by logic and proof, smile back at them and restate our case.

And a perfect illustration of the kind of blurry vision that apologists must resort to in order to take a stand against a war which is probably to clearest, simplest, most unequivocal in generations: getting rid of a tyrant who has done massive damage with the limited weapons and means at this disposal and is now doing everything to obtain even greater means of threatening the entire planet. Michael Walzer states the problem well and concisely but then his analysis tailspins into the ground faster than a laser-guided bomb onto a presidential palace in Baghdad.
And humanitarian interventions to stop massacre and ethnic cleansing can also legitimately result in the installation of a new regime. But now that a zone of (relative) safety has been carved out for the Kurds in the North, there is no compelling case to be made for humanitarian intervention in Iraq. The Baghdad regime is brutally repressive and morally repugnant, certainly, but it is not engaged in mass murder or ethnic cleansing; there are governments as bad (well, almost as bad) all over the world.
So according to Michael Walzer, we must wait until Iraq engages in mass murder or ethnic cleansing before we act. Would this argument have applied to Tim McVeigh had the FBI stumbled accross his plans before the Oklahoma bombing? Obviously Mr. Walzer has no concept of the kind of death and destruction terrorism and Islamo-fascism has already inflicted on the world. Can the world afford to let the same people get a hold of nuclear weapons? I think not.
Wonder why the Israelis are so interested in flattening all these buildings around Arafat's compound? According to Debka, this is linked to the upcoming campaign against Iraq. Read on...
The factor most troubling to US war leaders and the Israeli government is the information that Saddam has managed to smuggle a set of chemical and biological weapons to Arafat’s operatives, especially the ones commanded by General Intelligence chief Tawfiq Tirawi, who doubles as al Aqsa commander. It is also feared that Iraq has been allowed to plant its undercover agents, armed with weapons of mass destruction, including even radiological devices, among Arafat’s terror cells.
These discoveries and suspicions prompted Israel’s all-out operation to cut off Arafat’s links with the outside world and its efforts to lay hands on Tirawi and at least 10 other of Arafat’s top guns who shelter in his quarters. These men are believed to be in possession of the secret locations of the Palestinian terrorist rings harboring Iraqi agents and their weapons of mass destruction.
Smashing this Palestinian-Iraqi connection and its hub in Ramallah is regarded by the Americans and Israelis as the key to preventing Saddam mounting an unconventional warfare attack from Arafat’s terror base – and not only against Israel.

I am guessing that there is more and more evidence of a link between Saddam and the leading terrorists in the world i.e. Arafat and Bin Laden.
Other Debka analysis surmises that the fact that the Israelis stopped dead in their track in their demolition Derby is that they just realized that Washington has somehow made a deal with Egypt and Saudi Arabia to secure Israel not responding to an Iraqi attack in exchange for Egypt/Saudi Arabia's silence regarding the gradual destruction of the PA and the isolation of Arafat.
Oy Vey! My head is pounding!

The pros and cons of getting rid of the Palestinian Authority (PA)
Many are blaming the latest Israeli action (the virtual destruction of Arafat's compound in Ramallah) as the final blow against the Palestinian Authority. While this may be the case, it would be interesting to weigh the pros and cons of getting rid of the PA:

First, the pros; the PA should be destroyed and replaced because:
- it is totally corrupt. In actual fact, it has little to show for for the $5B it received from the EU. Sorry, correction....Other than Arafat, who has $1.2B in his personal bank account, the PA has little to show for.
- it promotes hatred to Palestinian children by producing violently anti-Israeli and antisemitic textbooks used in all Palestinian Elementary and High Schools.
- it has never condemned suicide bombings for the reason that they are barbarian, genocidal, inexcusable and monstrous. Instead, it only tells would-be suicide bombers that their attacks hurt the image of Palestinians and give Israel reasons to continue its crackdown on terrorism.
- it sided with Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War.
- it has recognized Arafat as its President, even though all objective international observers have stated that the election was rigged, and the next election promises to be a repeat of the initial farce.
- it has never produced a single budget or plan for the Palestinian people to deal with Education, Health, infrastructure, etc...instead, it perpetuates the constant intellectual masturbation that because Israel "occupies" some territory, all it has to plan for is for more bloodshed and violence.
- it orchestrated and triggered both intifadas, including the current one which has resulted in over 600 dead Israelis and over 2000 dead Palestinians
- it has never changed its charter which calls for the destruction of the state of Israel.
- contrary to the Oslo accord, which it signed, the PA has yet to deliver a single terrorist to Israel's justice, even though over 10,000 terrorist acts were committed during the last 2 years alone.
- it organized and still organizes the smuggling of many tons of weapons into the territories with the goal of creating mass casualties among Israelis therefore triggering yet another generalized conflict in the Middle East.

Now, the reasons why the PA should be maintained and why the Israelis should stop their attack on Arafat's compound:

(via Daimnation)
Show 'em how it's done guys...

Israeli flag planted on Arafat's compound

RAMALLAH - Thousands of Palestinians poured into the streets of the West Bank and Gaza Stip in protest late Saturday as Israeli soldiers tightened their grip around Yasser Arafat's once mighty fortress.

Israeli soldiers planted the Star-of-David flag in what's left of the Palestinian leader's Ramallah compound, as they continued to raze buildings in a military operation that began several days ago.
