ABU DHABI // Visitors to websites that promote terrorist activities – many of which are accessible in this country – can now be charged with supporting terrorism, though strong evidence of criminal intent is required for conviction, a top state security judge says.

Chief Justice Shehab al Hammadi, who presides over all state security cases at the Federal Supreme Court, said a legal precedent had been set with the conviction of six people in April for operating a terror organisation, meaning that viewing such sites could now be considered a crime. As the first case to include charges of visiting jihadi websites it paved the way for other courts to approve charges against visitors to such sites.

Mr al Hammadi said that even if a website was not blocked, convictions could still be obtained if prosecutors showed a defendant had “criminal intentions” in visiting them. Examples, he saidd, included downloading extremist content from the websites or forwarding links to friends.

“These websites are available for everyone and it is almost impossible to block them, just like it is difficult to monitor all satellite channels. But when a person visits them and spreads their news or content among his or her acquaintance, that is considered like a crime they witnessed or committed,” Chief Justice al Hammadi said in an interview with The National.

While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to tighten the blockade against Gaza, the castrated corporate media in the U.S. is reporting that Israeli restrictions are being eased.

Last week, Netanyahu’s office released a statement in English that vowed to “liberalize the system by which civilian goods enter Gaza” and “Expand the inflow of materials for civilian projects that are under international supervision”.

The headlines quickly followed:

“Israel Eases Restrictions on Goods Bound for Gaza Strip” (Washington Post)
“Israel to Ease Gaza Land Blockade” (New York Times)
“Israel to Ease Blockade of Gaza, Cabinet Says” (CNN)
“Israel says it will ease Gaza blockade” (MSNBC)

And on and on…

However, none of these outlets reported on the fact that Netanyahu’s security cabinet never actually reached any agreement to do anything regarding the blockade.

As Ha’aretz reported:

The prime minister’s office announced on Thursday that the security cabinet had agreed to relax Israel’s blockade on the Gaza Strip, but as it turns out, no binding decision was ever made during the cabinet meeting.

The prime minister’s office issued a press release in English following the meeting, which was also sent to foreign diplomats, was substantially different than the Hebrew announcement–according to the English text, a decision was made to ease the blockade, but in the Hebrew text there was no mention of any such decision.

Just hours later, Netanyahu pledged that his government intends to “tighten” the blockade, noting:

“There will be no civilian closure of Gaza but there will be a security closure. That security closure will be tightened from now on.”

A key passage of Netanyahu’s statement came with the declaration:

“We have deprived Hamas of the ability to blame Israel for hurting the civilian population [of Gaza] and our friends around the world are getting behind our decision and giving international legitimacy to the security blockade on Hamas.”

As Sherine Tadros of Al Jazeera notes, this simply gives an official status to an illegal blockade:

By changing it from a “civilian” blockade to a “military” one, in one stroke Israel pacified the international community and gained their approval (or at least a nod) for its continuing policy in Gaza.

Israel’s naval blockade remains in place and the Gazan people are not allowed to leave or export any goods:

But even if more goods are let in, even if the UN is finally able to finish its projects in the Strip, even if the land crossings start working efficiently and for longer hours – the people of Gaza are still under the whim of Israel’s decisions and 1.7 million people cannot leave.

Israel has now also asked the UN to suspend attempts to organise an international inquiry into the violent raid on the freedom flotilla to Gaza last month.

Now Iran says it intends to send a blockade-busting ship carrying aid and pro-Palestinian activists to Gaza.

With an armada of twelve or more U.S. and Israeli warships, including an aircraft carrier, making their way to the Red Sea, with former senior Israeli officials ratcheting up the war rhetoric, and with Israeli commandos training for another possible confrontation at sea, any kind of incident could spark off conflict.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon has said the plan to demolish Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem to make way for a tourist park is illegal and unhelpful.

On Monday Jerusalem City Council approved the plan to demolish 22 Palestinian homes in Silwan – part of a major redevelopment of the area.

The move has drawn criticism both at home and from the Obama administration.

Mr Ban said the plan was "contrary to international law" and "unhelpful" to efforts to restart peace negotiations.

"The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about the decision by the Jerusalem municipality to advance planning for house demolitions and further settlement activity in the area of Silwan," Mr Ban's office said in a statement.

Israel's government had a "responsibility to ensure provocative steps [were] not taken" that would heighten tensions in the city, he said.

On Tuesday, the US State Department criticised the move, saying it undermined trust and increased the risk of violence.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak also criticised Jerusalem's municipality for "bad timing" and poor "common sense".

Under the plan, 22 Palestinian homes would be demolished to make room for an Israeli archaeological park. Another 66 buildings constructed without Israeli permission would be legalised.

Israel has come under international pressure over its settlement plans in East Jerusalem, including the construction of 1,600 housing units in a Jewish neighbourhood there.

Under international law the area is occupied territory. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.

Terror made either in-house or external by individuals is increasing

Although the Islamist indoctrination has a decade's long history, the democratic countries, based on human rights, ignored the treat of
!!!!!! the Islamism doctrine of Islamism rules the world, if necessary imposed by the sword and terror as a tactical tool !!!!!!.

The Islamist indoctrination has gained a significant speed and advantage by:
•Using modern all types of media communication technologies to reach Muslims worldwide and teach the use of terror as a tactical toll
•Using Mosques and preachers worldwide to spread the ideas, recruit new activist
•Updating the terror tactic- the terror of individuals without connection to any organization- individual terror including children age 10 and up and married women without husband permission
•Cleverly using the west human rights values and freedom of expression to protect their activities

TV documentary programs disclosed Islamist activities teaching hate in USA and UK.
However no significant measures have been undertaken to stop those activities

•The rapid spread of Islam in America
•America at a crossroads

John A   June 27th, 2010 11:37 am ET

Ariely, who has continued an illegal military occupation for 60 years. Is it Israel and the Jews or Palestine and the Islamists??

Oh yeh its Israel and the Jews who use an army to illegally occupy others!!

When was the last time Iran started a war, over 1000 years ago!

Looks like the facts dont support Ariely's wild racist claims. But if Ariely is happy spouting racial hatred then let him, as this exposes the wickedness of Zionism.

Interesting then basically the Dubai government can arrest anyone that has any access to the internet! That severely curtails journalists working in Dubai's CNN branch office doesn't it?

And if Dubai considers Israel to be a terrorist organization then that would severely place the CNN reporters and journalists in CNN's Dubai's office at risk won't it?

miriam   June 28th, 2010 7:23 am ET


You seem rather confused, taking your information from innaccurate, anti-government sources.

The eases in restrictions on products into Gaza has been discussed since December and only expediated recently, and yes, there has been an easing, much to the annoyance of the tunnel operators and Hamas officials whose tax income is diminishing.

There is nothing illegal in what Israel is doing to protect her citizens, and the citizens of Gaza, from a Gazan leadership who vows to destroy Israel and the Jews, repress anyone in Gaza who doesn't support their cause and subjects its own population to severe restrictions and violence. Meanwhile the blind of this world happily support the Hamas cause and irrationally attack the free democracy of Israel.

miriam   June 28th, 2010 7:36 am ET

John A,

Every few months you come back with the same comments and protests about the the Silwan project.

That is because every few months, the project comes to another committee in the long process for gaining building permits in Jerusalem.

No matter what Ban Ki Moon says, parroting the untruths of the anti-Israeli leftists and Palestinian sources, the destruction of illegally built homes is not against any law.

The homes were built on land that under the Ottomans, British, Jordanians and Israeli rule was zoned for park and recreational purposes which until Israel improved drainage systems there, was a swamp that flooded in the winter.

If someone was to decide to build homes in the moat of the Tower of London, or in St. James's Park, or along the Washington Mall or in the gardens of the Versailles Palace, you would claim that it would be illegal to destroy them.

It's the same illogic.

John A   June 28th, 2010 2:11 pm ET

Miriam it was once perfectly legal for Germans to put Jews in concentration camps. But you don't seem to understand that a states laws define a states morality. So yes under Israeli law you can do what you want with the Palestinians, yes thats perfectly legal in Israel as apartheid was in South Africa. It is the exact nature of your laws which makes Israel such a vile and isolated state. Does this ever get through to you or with American military support you feel acts of evil are fine because nobody has so far been able to stop it?

You are defending the indefensible. John is correct in that just because the state of Israel makes laws does not make them legal or moral. The US had laws against Blacks that are illegal by today’s laws but legal in days passed. The Fascists, Communists and every tin pot dictator in history passed laws that they considered legal because there was no one to stop them. Israel is doing exactly the same. Take American one sided support of Israel away, the equation would change completely. I am sure that you will be held accountable just like every immoral regime in the past.

John A   June 30th, 2010 5:17 pm ET

Airely, I see you posted the same lame blog on several pages. You seem to be going all out to embarrass yourself by posting this dribble. You can post it another one thousand times if you like, but it will only confirm that you have a fragile and ill informed state of mind.

To hell with the Zionists and their ilk. They have been the fomenters of world conflict for the past 150 years. Israel has the bomb. I say – as an American – let Iran have the bomb. Lastly, no one in my family is going to die for Israel. Israel is not associated with any God that is good. One more thing – Zionists are 97% Ashkenazi. Palestinians are 100% semetic. Zionists are all anti-semetic, by their 97% DNA.

Abrahem   June 30th, 2010 5:48 pm ET

IT is dangerous to prophesy in such matters, especially when we are dealing with people not all of whom are wise and not all of whom are sane. Yet I am ready to maintain: there is no possibility whatsoever that the government of Israel will send the air force to attack Iran.

I am not going to enter into military matters. I want to focus on another aspect: is it politically feasible? What would be the consequences?

FIRST OF ALL, a basic rule of Israeli reality: the State of Israel cannot start any large-scale military operation without American consent.

Israel depends on the US in almost every respect, but in no sphere is it more dependent than in the military one.

The aircraft that must execute the mission were supplied to us by the US. Their efficacy depends on a steady flow of American spare parts. At that range, refueling from US-built tanker aircraft would be necessary.

The same is true for almost all other war material of our army, as well as for the money needed for their acquisition. Everything comes from America.

In 1956, Israel went to war without American consent. Ben-Gurion thought that his collusion with the UK and France was enough. He was vastly mistaken. One hundred hours after telling us that the “Third Kingdom of Israel” had come into being, he announced with a broken voice that he was going to evacuate all the territories just conquered. President Dwight Eisenhower, together with his Soviet colleague, had submitted an ultimatum, and that was the end of the adventure.

Since then, Israel has not started a single war without securing the agreement of Washington. On the eve of the Six-day War, a special emissary was sent to the US to make sure that there was indeed American agreement. When he returned with an affirmative answer, the order for the attack was issued.

On the eve of Lebanon War I, Defense Minister Ariel Sharon rushed to Washington to obtain American consent. He met with Secretary of State Alexander Haig, who agreed – but only on condition that there would be a clear provocation. A few days later there just happened to be an attempt on the life of the Israeli ambassador in London, and the war was on.

The Israeli army’s offensives against Hezbollah (“Lebanon War II”) and Hamas (“Cast Lead”) were possible because they were cast as part of the American campaign against “Radical Islam”.

Ostensibly, that is also true for an attack on Iran. But no BECAUSE AN Israeli attack on Iran would cause a military, political and economic disaster for the United States of America.

Since the Iranians, too, realize that Israel could not attack without American consent, they would react accordingly.

As I have written here before, a cursory glance at the map suffices to indicate what would be the immediate reaction. The narrow Hormuz Strait at the entrance of the Persian (or Arabian) Gulf, through which a huge part of the world’s oil flows, would be sealed at once. The results would shake the international economy, from the US and Europe to China and Japan. Prices would soar to the skies. The countries that had just begun to recover from the world economic crisis would sink to the depths of misery and unemployment, riots and bankruptcies.

The Strait could be opened only by a military operation on the ground. The US simply has no troops to spare for this – even if the American public were ready for another war, one much more difficult than even those of Iraq and Afghanistan. It is even doubtful whether the US could help Israel to defend itself against the inevitable counter-stroke by Iranian missiles.

The Israeli attack on a central Islamic country would unite the entire Islamic world, including the entire Arab world. The US, which has spent the last few years laboring mightily to form a coalition of “moderate” Arab states (meaning: countries governed by dictators kept by the US) against the “radical” states. This pack would immediately become unstuck. No Arab leader would be able to stand aside while the masses of his people were gathering in tumultuous demonstrations in the squares.

All this is clear to any knowledgeable person, and even more so to the American military and civilian leaders. Secretaries, generals and admirals have been sent to Israel to make this clear to our leaders in a language that even kindergarten kids can understand: No! Lo! La! Nyet!

IF SO, why has the military option not been removed from the table? Because the US and Israel like it lying there.

The US likes to pose as if it can hardly hold back the ferocious Israeli Rottweiler on its leash. This puts pressure on the other powers to agree to the imposition of sanctions on Iran. If you don’t agree, the murderous dog could leap out of control. Think about the consequences!

What sanctions? For some time now, this terrifying word – “sanctions” – has been bedeviling everybody on the international stage. They are going to be imposed “within weeks”. But when one inquires what it is all about, one realizes that there is a lot of smoke and very little fire. Some commanders of the Revolutionary Guards may be hurt, some marginal damage inflicted on the Iranian economy. The “paralyzing sanctions” have disappeared, because there was no chance that Russia and China would agree. Both do very good business with Iran.

Also, there is very little chance that these sanctions would stop the production of the bomb, or even slow it down. From the point of view of the Ayatollahs, this effort is the prime imperative of national defense – only a country with nuclear arms is immune from American attack. Faced with the repeated threats by American spokesmen to overthrow their regime, no Iranian government could act differently. The more so since during the last century, the Americans and the British have repeatedly done exactly that. Iranian denials are perfunctory. According to all reports, even the most extreme Iranian opponents of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad support the acquisition of the bomb and would rally behind him if attacked.

In this respect, the Israeli leadership is right: nothing will stop Iran’s endeavor to obtain a nuclear bomb except the massive employment of military power. The “sanctions” are childish games. The American administration is talking about them in glowing terms in order to cover up the fact that even mighty America is unable to stop the Iranian bomb.

WHEN NETANYAHU & Co. criticize the inability of the American leaders to act against Iran, they answer in the same coin: you, too, are not serious.

And indeed, how serious are our leaders about this? They have convinced the Israeli public that it is a matter of life and death. Iran is led by a madman, a new Hitler, a sick anti-Semite, an obsessive Holocaust-denier. If he got his hands on a nuclear bomb, he would not hesitate for a moment to drop it on Tel Aviv and Dimona. With this sword hanging over our heads, this is no time for trivial matters, such as the Palestinian problem and the occupation. Everyone who raises the Palestinian question in a meeting with our leaders is immediately interrupted: Forget this nonsense, let’s talk about the Iranian bomb!!

But Obama and his people turn the argument around: if this is an existential danger, they say, please draw the conclusions. If this matter endangers the very existence of Israel, sacrifice the West Bank settlements on this altar. Accept the Arab League peace offer, make peace with the Palestinians as quickly as possible. That will ease our situation in Iraq and Afghanistan and free our forces. Also, Iran would have no more pretext for war with Israel. The masses of the Arab world would not support it anymore.

And the conclusion: If a new Jewish neighborhood in East Jerusalem is more important to you than the Iranian bomb, the matter is clearly not really so critical for you. And that, with all due modesty, is my opinion, too.

THE DAY before yesterday a correspondent of Israel’s popular Channel 2 called me and asked, in a shocked voice: “Is it true that you have given an interview to the Iranian news agency?

“That’s true,” I told her. The agency mailed me some questions about the political situation, and I answered.

“Why did you do this?” she asked/accused.

“Why not?” I replied. That was the end of the conversation.

And indeed, why not? True, Ahmadinejad is a repulsive leader. I hope that the Iranians will get rid of him, and assume that this will happen sooner or later. But our relations with Iran do not depend on one single person, whoever he may be. They go back to ancient times and were always friendly – from the time of Cyrus until the time of Khomeini (whom we provided with arms to fight the Iraqis.)

In Israel, the portrayal of Iran nowadays is a caricature: a primitive, crazy country, with nothing on its mind but the destruction of the Zionist state. But it suffices to read a few good books about Iran (I would recommend William Polk’s “Understanding Iran”) which describe one of the oldest civilized countries in the world, which has given birth to several great empires and made a remarkable contribution to human culture. It has an old and proud tradition. Some scholars believe that the Jewish religion was profoundly influenced by the ethical teachings of Zoroaster (Zarathustra).

Whatever the rantings of Ahmadinejad, the real rulers of the country, the clerics, conduct a cautious and sober policy, and have never attacked another country. They have many important interests, and Israel is not among them. The idea that they would sacrifice their own glorious homeland in order to destroy Israel is ludicrous.

The simple truth is that there is no way to prevent the Iranians from acquiring a nuclear bomb. Better to think seriously about the situation that would be created: a balance of terror like the one between India and Pakistan, the elevation of Iran to the rank of a regional power, the need to start a sober dialogue with it.

John A   July 1st, 2010 12:17 am ET

Yusil Israel will be held accountable for its obvious criminality, but only after the world decides it can’t afford another major conflict.

It’s like the saying about economic depressions i.e. its a recession when your neighbor loses his job and a depression when you lose your job. In this case it’s a problem when the Jews crucify the Palestinians, but it will be a disaster when Zionist evil spills into all of our lives

It starting to happen, its not just Palestinians who die because of Israel’s radical anti Muslim behavior. Americans die every month fighting Israeli wars, as do other nations involved in Iraq. We are all seeing our economies being dragged to the ground to pay for Israel’s continued military occupation in the middle east.

Soon western people will be demanding their governments look after their own instead of blowing our wealth on Muslim wars and trillions in aid to Israel. When this time comes Israel will stand on its own and be punished for its 60 years of hateful aggression.

History always repeats itself and the most treacherous trouble making group in the history of the world will find themselves persecuted yet again. But don't worry, the Zionists won’t learn and future generations will also be subject to the cycle of violence and political unease that stems from Zionism. Some things will never change.

John A and Yusil,

For those like you who support states and entitities who have no respect for international or humanitarian laws, it is obviously a challenge for you to understand and appreciate those states that do.

The law wrt Silwan is a continuation of laws that have been in place for well over a century and possibly centuries. As mentioned, under Ottoman, British and Jordanian control it was illegal to build in specific areas and the law was obeyed until Palestinian political players decided to encouraged illegal construction on the land that had been zoned for park land.

Had Israel not improved drainage in the area to improve the living conditions of existing residents who built without any infrastructure under British and Jordanian control, the park land would have been impossible to build on.

Dismissing Israel's independent judicial system and rule of law is nothing more than bigotry, ignorance and another expression of the pathological psychological projectionism that has infected the Israel bashers of the world.

miriam   July 4th, 2010 6:31 am ET


Your statistics are a joke!

More than half the Jewish Israelis are not Ashkenazi, nor are many of world's jewry.The largest group of anti-Zionist Jews are Ashkenazi.

Palestinians are not 100% semitic, many originating from outside Arabia and many from outside the ME altogether.

miriam   July 4th, 2010 6:43 am ET

Abrahem, aka Uri Avneri,

Those of us who know anything about Israel know about who you plagiarize and his colourful past.

To copy and paste articles written by the most extreme in Israeli society does not suggest a grip on reality.

miriam   July 4th, 2010 1:00 pm ET


Isn't it fortunate that Israel has never asked for any American soldier, nor any other foreign soldier or civilian, to fight for her or die for her. So I guess your family is safe.

However, you obviously have no problem with Israelis dying for your freedom and security.
Israel is the first line in the defence of the West, physically and in protection of freedom and democracy.
If Israel goes, so will the modern and free world.

John A   July 8th, 2010 5:47 pm ET

Once again, how do you know when an Israeli has lied themselves into a corner and can not escape their own bad deeds,

They will call their critics anti Semitic.

Miriam do you know the difference between an honest person and a liar?
Liars must remember what they said in the past!

Miriam, all who read this blog fully understand why you always fall back on the phrase anti Semitic. We have also seen you stories change from month to month.

Nevertheless I will admit you are persistent, even if its because you persist on exposing your fragile state of mind, utter falsehoods and always fall back on your anti Semitic crutch.

How long can Israel prop itself up on this crutch?

miriam   July 11th, 2010 9:14 am ET

John A,

My position has remained constant in defending Israel from those who enjoy spreading lies and disinformation about the Jewish state.

Your position has also remained constant, introducing more and more desperate lies and disinformation and failing to recognize that much of the anti-Zionism and anti-Israel hate is anti-semitism.

So much so, that any legitimate criticism of Israel cannot be distinguished from the demonization and delegitimization which has damaged any real debate on Israeli policy.

John A   July 11th, 2010 10:42 am ET

Yes Miriam, you constantly defend Israel no matter what Israel does. The problem is the justification for your defense changes every time Israel has been caught acting like thugs.

Remember you often claim that Israel is the only democracy in the middle east, but then you go onto justify why Israel makes fake passports to go on under cover killing missions. You try to justify an illegal occupation, You try to justify the shooting of unarmed aid workers in the back of their heads while in international waters. You try to justify a Gaza blockade which will not allow the supply of childrens toys etc etc The list of Israeli crimes is endless and the return to Israel being a supposed democracy. Well I guess Hitler was elected, so may be Israel is a democracy.

miriam   July 13th, 2010 9:59 am ET

John A,

There is no proof that Israel faked passports or murdered Mabhouh. It could have been done by any of the numerous countries of the world engaged in falsifying documents for under cover missions, including political and terrorist abductions and murders or espionage.

There is no "occupation" and even if it were, it would be legal.

Those killed on the Marmara were armed provocateurs and there is no proof that any were shot 5 times in the back of the head.

It is legal under IL to board a boat intent on breaking a legal blockade in international waters.

There was never a blockade on toys etc.

Your list of baseless accusations and flowing propaganda of lies and disinformation is endless and I shall continue to defend Israel against such deliberate, bigoted hate and discrimination.

Feedback to the comment referring to Hitler and Israel
Similarities between Nazism and Arabs predecessors as well 21 century followers

** Hitler remark **
It's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the Mohammedan religion?
It would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity.

A: WW2- The 40.000 Nazi Muslim volunteers troops were called in Arab world Arab “the Cream of lslam”.

B: Dr. Serge Trifkovic documents the similarities between radical Islam and Nazism in his book
"The Sword of the Prophet."
He noted parallels in both ideologies:
1: belief in undemocratic governance by a "divine" leader (an Islamic caliph, or Nazi führer).
2: quest for world dominance,
3: demand for the total subordination of the free will of the individual
4:, belief in the abolishment of the nation-state in favor of a "higher" community
(in Islam the umma or community of all believers; in Nazism, the herrenvolk or master race),
5: anti-Semitism

C: Himmler, Head of SS, financed and established Islamic Institute) in Dresden under the Mufti.
The purpose was to create a generation of :

!!!! Islamic leaders that would continue to use Islam as a carrier for
Nazi ideology into the 21st century !!!!

Thanks CNN, by allowing Airely to post his blogs you are letting the world see the poor mental health possessed by the murder loving Zionists.

Airely your posts are all hate, without content & without facts. Unless you think facts can be found by referring to other unbalanced Zionists who were former Irgung terrorists who have murdered many women and children for the sake of Zionist Israel.

Samantha   July 14th, 2010 12:06 pm ET

Miriam, by constantly denying the facts you have become nothing more than a Holocaust denier!!

Israel should stop murdering Palestinians and end its illegal military occupation of other peoples land. Thats all, nothing more and nothing less.

miriam   July 14th, 2010 12:47 pm ET

Sash/John A,

Do you both get your myths from the same source, filled with the same spelling mistakes?

miriam   July 14th, 2010 12:59 pm ET


Belittling the Holocaust and falsifying the suffering of the Palestinians is an affront to the victims in both situations.

The Palestinians suffer not because of Israel but because of their own leaders and the leaders of the Arab and Muslim world.

Israel does not "murder" Palestinians, although some brain-washed Palestinians do murder Israelis and there is no "occupation" of another peoples' land by Israel, despite the fact that over 3/4 of the land legally promised to the Jews by the League of Nations is now Jordan and a large proportion of the rest has been repeatedly offered to the Palestinians by Israel.

Q2A   July 16th, 2010 1:40 pm ET

Instead of trying to control people's behavior through laws this country should be trying to find a backbone by stopping Israel from committing atrocities against the Palestinians down in Gaza. The reason why extremist Islamic websites exist is because Muslims all over the world recognize the fact that the European nations including the US are not honest peace brokers, nor true defenders of human rights, especially when the people are Muslim. A case in point is the Srebrenica massacre-genocide in Serbia where Muslim men, women and children were exterminated while under the protection of the UN. Israel is just like former minority controlled White South Africa with its brutal apartheid. It failed as a system of oppression and so too will Israel. The paradoxical question is; how does a nation who itself suffered through genocide now perpetrate a genocide on the people of Palestine? Those Jewish citizens who believe their cause is a just cause because they shed blood and had family and friends die while stealing the Palestinian land and history are delusional. Ultimately, Israel will fail just like South Africa because there is only one God and he is the God of righteousness.

Samantha   July 16th, 2010 6:30 pm ET

Well said Q2A!!

Personally I feel ill when Jews describe this land as promised to them by God. If that were true, why do Israeli need to kill so many Palestinians? That is most ungodly and is the exact opposite of fulfilling religious destiny. The opposite of religion is evil and it is evil which has consumed Israel.

When will the west stop supporting this evil? It is as if they think they can cheat God and pretend they are the chosen ones just because they have more guns.

When you consider the amount of Palestinians who have been killed by Zionists over 60 years and then try to imagine how many Palestinian children were never even born because of the squalid conditions Israel has forced these people to live under. The numbers must far exceed the holocaust.

In response to your question.

Of course you seem perplexed when bombarded by irrational lies.

There is no genocide by the Jews.

The genocide is still being called against the Jews, backed up by lies and myths and deseminated by the likes of Samantha who does not have a grasp on theology or reality.

Lets the numbers tell the story:
Arab population has increased:
!!!! 11 times more !!!!
Under Israel government compared to Jordan/Egypt governments
(Despite the Christians exodus from Palestinian controlled areas)

1: West Bank Arab population increase during the pick time period of Jordan government 1950- 1960 and Israel government 1990-2000
Jordan 34.000
Israel 765.792

2: Gaza Arab population increase during the pick time period of Egypt government 1950-1960 compared to Israel 1990- 2000:
Egypt 62.000
Israel 489.249

It would be impossible for the Arab Muslim population increased by a factor of 11-
Despite the Christian exodus from Palestinian controlled areas-
Despite of the squalid conditions Israel has forced these people to live under
Compared to lovely Jordan/Egypt governments?

Miriam and Ariely, surely by now you must realize that people who read this site are sick of reading your worthless lies and Israeli propoganda.
You are not fooling anyone with your persecuted Jews myths.

Just get Israels blood thirsty army out of Palestine and Syria. Stop Israels murder. Stop giving Jews a bad name through the sickening crimes of Israel. Its been going on for 60 years, the world is sick and tired of Zionist crimes!!!

The sick are those who repeat the lies, rhetoric and propaganda of those who have spent far more than 62 years trying to annihilate the Jewish people by whatever myth they can invent whether religious, racial or frustration at the Jewish peoples' ability to survive every attempt to destroy it.

I'm sorry for those who read this blog and are infected by the hate that some of us try so hard to counter with truth and fact.

Miriam Israel gets bigger while Palestine disappears under Israeli tanks?

Possibly you should check your dictionary and learn the meaning of the words you write. Surely you dont make so many mistakes on purpose, because then you would be an outrageous liar.

Please check your dictionary Miriam and come back and apologies for claiming people try to annihilate Israel. Israel has all the guns and all the stolen land. when did Israels military offensives, land grabs and expansion define Israel as under threat of annihilation??
