Israel releases map showing 1000 underground military sites operated by Hizballah


And the world yawns at Hizballah’s country-within-a-country, complete with “the strongest armed force in Lebanon.” “Israel releases army map showing nearly 1,000 purported Hezbollah underground military sites,” from the Washington Post, March 31 (thanks to all who sent this in):

JERUSALEM “” The Israeli military on Thursday released a map detailing what it says are nearly 1,000 underground bunkers, weapons storage facilities and monitoring sites built by the militant Hezbollah guerrillas in southern Lebanon.

Many of the sites on the map are located south of the Litani River in Lebanon, the zone where Hezbollah is banned from keeping weapons under the U.N.-sponsored truce that ended Israel’s summer 2006 war with the guerrilla group.

An article on the military spokesman’s website says Hezbollah has set up some 550 bunkers, 300 monitoring sites and 100 weapons storage facilities. The facilities are located in 270 villages, and many are located near hospitals, private homes and schools, the military said in a statement published on its website.

Where’s the outrage? Not in Washington, apparently, where the Obama administration is considering reaching out to “nonmilitary components” in Hizballah and Hamas that they suppose “can be drawn into a dialogue.”

Israel and Hezbollah went to war after the Lebanese guerrilla group killed three Israeli soldiers and captured two others in a cross-border raid. Although Israel inflicted heavy damage on the group, it was unable to prevent it from firing some 4,000 rockets into Israel during the monthlong conflict.

Since then, Israel has accused Hezbollah of repeatedly violating the U.N.-brokered cease-fire by restocking its arsenal and covertly moving forces into south Lebanon, near the Israeli border. The map released Thursday was meant to provide new evidence against Hezbollah.

Israel believes Hezbollah now has more than 40,000 rockets, nearly three time the pre-war level, including more powerful weapons capable of reaching Israel’s Tel Aviv heartland.

Remember also that in 2004, U.N. Resolution 1559 demanded the disarmament of all Lebanese militia groups. Hizballah is the only group from Lebanon’s civil war that failed to do so. They have had seven years not only to ignore this resolution (just like almost everyone else has where Hizballah is concerned), but to build an even larger army in defiance of it.

The militant group, which controls the strongest armed force in Lebanon, did not acknowledge or deny that the Israeli map was accurate and accused Israel of employing scare tactics….

    So where’s Hussein Obama’s outrage, like in Egypt and Libya – even to the extend of arming Muslim terrorist rebels in Libya? The Tea Party should organize peaceful mass protest everywhere to defend Freedom that include freedom of speech, against Arab-led Nazi-like Islamic domination of the US and to demand the impeachment of Hussein Obama for supporting and arming Islamic terrorism in Egypt and Libya and yet strangely leaving the much more dangerous Hamas, Hezbollah and nuclear-possessed Iran and Pakistan alone!

    Further, the Left, especially the Socialists are really evil – they, like the Muslim savages are anti-Jews, since Hitler’s days! They will keep on sacrificing more and more on individuals’ personal liberty as based on free will for the sake of a unified powerful and totalitarian/fascist ‘political community’ by supporting similar Islamic ideological evil hatred on such individual freedom! Thus, the Left and Muslim fanatics share the same common goal – to abolish both individual freedom and individual justice; just to gain supremacist/fascist political power, like the Nazis (I suspect that’s why Hitler loves Islam!) The Western Left, including Socialist priests are basically selling out the West/Judeo-Christian civilization to the most evil enemies; let us never to forget Hitler and the Nazis were also Socialists – see

    It’s come to this. The junior partner in the Norwegian government, the Socialist Left Party of Kristin Halvorsen, (Sosialistisk Venstreparti), plans to vote on a measure calling for military action against Israel if it decides to act against the Hamas in Gaza. Norway, Israel and the Jews blog informs the Tundra Tabloids of the following:Socialistic Left dubious moral tradeoff for bombing Libya: Use armed force against Israel…..

    Since then, Israel has accused Hezbollah of repeatedly violating the U.N.-brokered cease-fire by restocking its arsenal and covertly moving forces into south Lebanon, near the Israeli border.

    Has a “U.N.-brokered cease-fire” ever been valid or properly enforced? Or is ‘violating’ these fictional ‘cease fires’ is what jihadis are supposed to do anyway, as “war is deceit” according to their Muhammad=Allah 7th c. Warlord guru. Lebanon under a state of siege by Hezbollah? Seems normal to me, especially positioning weapons and troops behind ‘human shields’, hospitals, schools, homes, etc… Hezbollah’s “War is Deceit”. Why worry?

  3. says

    It is only an issue of time until the next war breaks out. Only a fool would think otherwise.

    One of these days – and soon – the entire Middle East will have another big one.

    Then you will be lucky to find $10.00 a gallon gas.

    Israel should do this kind of exercise more often! I’m sure she’s got tons of embarrassing info, embarrassing for the liberal lefty types who harp on about the poor, starving, defenseless lambs in Gaza suffering under the iron heel of the merciless IDF etc, etc…

    And a half-page advert in 200 newspapers around the world to explain that Islam has got this thing called Jihad that fills the Qur’an, and it says that all the Jews should be murdered.

    Nothing like shining a strobe light into the darkness where the religion-of-peace scorpions are lurking.

    The Viking spirit left with the settlers that moved to the British Isles, Normandy, Russia, and then later to the USA and Canada. All that was left behind, for the most part, were the halfwits and people afraid to do anything vaguely dangerous.

    Let’s not play victims like Muslims. It’s Israel’s fault for letting this happen. They knew arms were coming in and facilities were being built. New Wikileaks show that Lebanon asked Israel to help them destroy Hezbollah.

    Looks like a plague map like the ones they used to track cholera in 19th century London. This time the rats are carrying a disease called Islam.

    I wonder what a similar map of the jihad training compounds in this country would look like.

    If Norway wants to bomb Israel, whose bombs are they expecting to use? Planning on packing handgrenades in snowballs, are they?

    I’ve got Viking blood if you go back hundreds of years, but even at that it’s apparently more than they’ve got left. And tell that “lady university professor” I would gladly walk down the main street of Oslo “dressed like a trollop” and packing a .38 and a couple of lead pipes, but at 67 and having inherited my grandmother’s body time I doubt that the appropriate point would be made.

    ther is something IMPORTANT you all should KNOW!!!

    Today a the Police found several tools for explosives very near to a football (soccer) stadium in germany, where this weekend a big Soccer game will take place, about 80,000 ppl will be there.
    The police also arrested a “german” guy who obviously uttered something about islam and so on. The “german” guy is probably a passport german with turkish or arab background, maybe but only maybe it is also possible that it is really a german guy, who probably is a convert to islam.
    The media in germany is very carefuly with saying it was an islamic attack, but the famous “Bildzeitung” did actualy mention that th suspect uttered some islamic stuff when arrested, whatever that means. The guy also had email contact to pakistan, the german govement of course denies that, they say that was just an ordinary criminal, yeah right!
    I hope you are all aware this could have been much bigger than 9/11 there could be tens of thousends of dead ppl if those bombs were detonated.

    Who does not believe me, check this out:

    I really hope some jourtnalist will shed some light on this, if this was a planned islamic terror attack, the ppl in germany need to know! I suspect the goverment will try to cover it up, so again I hope the entire truth comes out and that those who are lying about those thing will be brought to justice as well. But I suspect that something really bad has to happened, where no one can deny it was an islamic terrorist, then and not before, ppl will finally wake up. Lord have mercy.

    A thousand military sites. I have to wonder who’s paying for all that? I don’t recall buying anything from Lebanon recently. Or ever, since I’m not a drug-smoker. Where does the money come from? A thousand anything usually costs money, even for storing dust bunnies. A thousand military sites and all that goes with them, and then the manpower and shipping? I’d guess we’re talking significant amounts of money whizzing around the financial world that shouldn’t be hard to find the sources of.

    If I were a humanitarian, my first stop on the road to sainthood would be at the source of the money, where I would see about relieving them of the burden of passing it on to baddies. They could instead give it to me and mine. Everyone would benefit that way. I’d be rich, the Lebanese would live a little longer, and the Israelis might not have to worry about being bombed daily.

    Yes, some would call it a crime, but I think of it as something like a moral act. Taking from jihadi X is a good thing. It saves him from hurting himself and other. Now, am I a nice guy or what? We need more nice guys on our side. Do the world a service. Take money from the jihadis. Metaphorically burn down their tents with over-heated rhetoric so they have to spend their time replacing them, and soon enough, we’re talking world peace.

    Great job, Condi Rice. I knew that your efforts in the UN to keep southern Lebanon disarmed were totally useless.

    In core Islamic texts, Muhammad says the earth belongs to Muhammad and Allah, warns the Jews to accept Islam if they wish to be safe, and says he wants to deport them:

    In Sahih Muslim, a canonical hadith collection:

    Book 019, Number 4363:

    It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira who said: We were (sitting) in the mosque when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) came to us and said: (Let us) go to the Jews. We went out with him until we came to them. The Messenger of Allah [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him) stood up and called out to them (saying):
    O ye assembly of Jews, accept Islam (and) you will be safe.

    They said: Abu’l-Qasim, you have communicated (God’s Message to us). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:

    I want this (i. e. you should admit that God’s Message has been communicated to you), accept Islam and you would be safe.

    They said: Abu’l-Qisim, you have communicated (Allah’s Message). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I want this… – He said to them (the same words) the third time (and on getting the same reply) he [Muhammad] added:

    You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I wish that I should expel you from this land. Those of you who have any property with them should sell it, otherwise they should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle (and they may have to go away leaving everything behind).


    From page 464 (690 in the Arabic) of the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, Muhammad presides over the beheading of 600 to 900 Jews:

    Then [the Banu Qurayza tribe] surrendered, and the apostle [Muhammad] confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, ‘Will you never understand? Don’t you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!’ This went on until the apostle made an end of them.


    On page 369 (554 in the Arabic) of the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, Muhammad says “kill any Jew who falls into your power”:

    It’s a “beautiful” story of two brothers, Muhayyissa and Huwayyisa: (To avoid confusing the two brothers, keep in mind that the brother whose name begins with M is the Murderer in the story.)

    “The apostle [Muhammad] said, “Kill any Jew that falls into your power.‘ Thereupon Muhayyisa bin Masud leapt upon Ibn Sunayna, a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. Huwayisa was not a Muslim at the time though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed [the Jewish merchant] Huwayyisa began to beat [his brother Muhayyisa], saying, ‘You enemy of God, did you kill him when much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth?’ Muhayyisa answered, ‘Had the one who ordered me to kill him ordered me to kill you I would have cut your head off.’…[Huwayyisa] replied, ‘By God, if Muhammad had ordered you to kill me would you have killed me?’ [Muhayissa] said, ‘Yes, by God, had he ordered me to cut off your head I would have done so.’ [Huwayyisa] exclaimed, “By God, a religion which can bring you to this is marvellous!’ and [Huwayyisa] became a Muslim.”


    In core Islamic texts, Muhammad says that one day the very trees and stones will help Muslims to kill Jews.

    He says it both in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, Islam’s two most canonical hadith collections:

    Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 791:

    Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:
    I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!’ “

    Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176:

    Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:
    Allah’s Apostle [Muhammad] said, “You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, ‘O ‘Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.’ “

    Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah’s Apostle [Muhammad] said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6981:

    Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him.

    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6983:

    Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You and the Jews would fight against one another until a stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.

    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6984:

    Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Jews will fight against you and you will gain victory over them until the stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; kill him.

    Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

    Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

    As a long time avid reader of Jihad Watch I would like to correct a misconception that is being repeated ad nauseum on this blog by people like Katharina and others; namely that of equating Nazis with Socialists. Although Hitler had named his party “National Socialism” it was really a Fascist Right Wing party that had absolutely nothing to do with real Socialism.

    Historically, Socialists did not hate Jews, but on the contrary many of the leading proponents of Socialist thought have been Jews (the Jewish Torah underpins many Socialist theories such a day of rest for everyone, rich and poor alike (which in time gave us the weekend), caring for orphans and the poor etc. It is also a fact that many of the leading Socialists Leaders have been Jewish and Hitler hounded both Jews and Socialists to extinction in the concentration camps.

    Islam, by its very nature, is a Fascist, anti-Semitic creed and in fact Hitler realized this right away and sought to forge alliances with Islamic leaders in the Middle East.

    The only thing that one can blame the present day Socialist parties in Europe for (and I say Europe because in the USA there are no true Socialist Political Parties of any standing as one understands it in its truest sense of the word. Even the Democratic Party is too far Right leaning to be considered a Leftist or Socialist Party by any standard), is that they naively ascribe to the theory of moral relativism and are quick to side with what they think is the underdog, in this case the poor “Palestinians” and by extension all Muslims. And the fact that the EU openly subscribes to a pro-Islam and anti-Israel agenda does not help matters either.

    When everything is taken into consideration, it makes one wonder if the Nazis were ever really defeated or if they ever really went away, since we seem to have nothing but Right-Wing Fascist leaders on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Muslim cleric: “Hitler was right to…do what he did to the Jews”

    Mind you, Hussam Fawzi Jabar is an Islamic cleric. He has devoted his life to studying the Qur’an and Sunnah. And he doesn’t seem to have come across anything in that extensive study to make him reconsider his vile and genocidal anti-Semitism.

    Yet the myth persists that Islamic anti-Semitism is an import from Christianity or Nazism or both, and that Islam in its pure form is tolerant and friendly to Jews. Journalist Lawrence Wright writes in this vein in The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11:

    Until the end of World War II … Jews lived safely–although submissively–under Muslim rule for 1,200 years, enjoying full religious freedom; but in the 1930s, Nazi propaganda on Arabic-language shortwave radio, coupled with slanders by Christian missionaries in the region, infected the area with this ancient Western prejudice [anti-Semitism]. After the war, Cairo became a sanctuary for Nazis, who advised the military and the government. The rise of the Islamist movement coincided with the decline of fascism, but they overlapped in Egypt, and the germ passed into a new carrier.

    This is a common view, but in reality there is a strong native strain of anti-Semitism in Islam, which is rooted in the Qur’an. The Muslim holy book contains a great deal of material that forms the foundation for a hatred of Jews that has perdured throughout Islamic history. It is virulent and hard to eradicate. The Qur’an portrays the Jews as the craftiest, most persistent, and most implacable enemies of the Muslims — and there is no Islamic authority that has moved to mitigate the most destructive interpretations of all this. The Qur’anic material on the Jews remains the prism through which far too many Muslims see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict–and Jews in general–to this day.

    A vivid illustration of this came in 2004 from Islam Online, a website founded by, among others, the internationally influential Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi in 1997. Although al-Qaradawi has won praise from Islamic scholar John Esposito for engaging in a “reformist interpretation of Islam and its relationship to democracy, pluralism, and human rights,” that “reformist” impulse doesn’t seem to carry over to his view of Jews (he has justified suicide bombings against Israeli civilians), or the view of them he has allowed to be published on Islam Online.

    In 2004 the site posted an article titled “Jews as Depicted in the Qur’an,” in which Sheikh ‘Atiyyah Saqr, the former head of the Fatwa Committee at the most respected institution in Sunni Islam, Al-Azhar University in Cairo, depicts Jews in a chillingly negative light, illustrated with abundant quotations from the Qur’an. Among other charges he levels at the Jews, Saqr says that they “used to fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah”; they “love to listen to lies”; they disobey Allah and ignore his commands; they wish “evil for people” and try to “mislead them”; and they “feel pain to see others in happiness and are gleeful when others are afflicted with a calamity.” He adds that “it is easy for them to slay people and kill innocents,” for “they are merciless and heartless.” And each charge he follows with Qur’anic citations (including, among others, 3:75; 5:64; 3:181; 5:41; 5:13; 2:109; 3:120; 2:61; 2:74; 2:100; 59:13-14; 2:96; and 2:79).

    Though he offers many examples of the alleged evil traits of the Jews supported by the Qur’an, Saqr doesn’t mention the notorious Qur’anic passages that depict an angry Allah transforming Jews into apes and pigs: 2:63-66; 5:59-60; and 7:166. The first of those passages depicts Allah telling the Jews who “profaned the Sabbath”: “Be as apes despicable!” It goes on to say that these accursed ones serve “as a warning example for their time and for all times to come.” The second has Allah directing Muhammad to remind the “People of the Book” about “those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil.” The third essentially repeats this, saying of the Sabbath-breaking Jews that when “in their insolence they transgressed (all) prohibitions,” Allah said to them, “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”

    In traditional Islamic theology these passages have not been considered to apply to all Jews. The classic Qur’anic commentator Ibn Kathir, whose commentary is widely distributed and respected among Muslims today, quotes earlier authorities saying that “those who violated the sanctity of the Sabbath were turned into monkeys, then they perished without offspring,” and that they “only lived on the earth for three days, for no transformed person ever lives more than three days.” While parts of the Qur’an are hostile to the Jews, Muhammad’s curse, in this case, was limited to these Sabbath-breakers, not to all Jews.

    However, that hasn’t stopped contemporary jihadists from frequently referring to Jews as the “descendants of apes and swine.” The implication is that today’s Jews are bestial in character and are the enemies of Allah, just as the Sabbath-breakers were. The recently deceased grand sheikh of Al-Azhar, Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, who was the most respected cleric in the world among Sunni Muslims, called Jews “the enemies of Allah, descendants of apes and pigs.” Saudi sheikh Abd al-Rahman al-Sudayyis, imam of the principal mosque in the holiest city in Islam, Mecca, said in a sermon that Jews are “the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs.”

    Another Saudi sheikh, Ba’d bin Abdallah al-Ajameh al-Ghamidi, made the connection explicit: “The current behavior of the brothers of apes and pigs, their treachery, violation of agreements, and defiling of holy places … is connected with the deeds of their forefathers during the early period of Islam–which proves the great similarity between all the Jews living today and the Jews who lived at the dawn of Islam.” A 1996 Hamas publication says that today’s Jews are bestial in spirit, and this is a manifestation of the punishment of their forefathers. In January 2007, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas stated, “The sons of Israel are mentioned as those who are corrupting humanity on earth,” referring to Qur’an 5:64.

    All this shows that leading Muslim authorities approach the Qur’an not as a document rooted in history, but as a blueprint for understanding the world today. Likewise, Sheikh ‘Atiyyah Saqr describes the Qur’anic teachings that because Jews “revolted against the Divine ordinances … they found no warm reception in all countries where they tried to reside. Rather, they would either be driven out or live in isolation.” Moreover, “Almighty Allah told us that He’d send to them people who’d pour on them rain of severe punishment that would last till the Day of Resurrection.” Then comes a threat: “All this gives us glad tidings of the coming victory of Muslims over them once Muslims stick to strong faith and belief in Allah and adopt the modern means of technology.”

    The classic Qur’anic commentators not do not mitigate the Qur’an’s words against Jews, but only add fuel to the fire. Ibn Kathir explained Qur’an 2:61 (“They were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of Allah”) this way: “This Ayah [verse] indicates that the Children of Israel were plagued with humiliation, and that this will continue, meaning that it will never cease. They will continue to suffer humiliation at the hands of all who interact with them, along with the disgrace that they feel inwardly.” Another Middle Ages commentator of lingering influence, ‘Abdallah ibn ‘Umar al-Baidawi, explains the same verse this way: “The Jews are mostly humiliated and wretched either of their own accord, or out of coercion of the fear of having their jizya [punitive tax] doubled.”

    Ibn Kathir notes Islamic traditions that predict that at the end of the world, “the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah), and the Muslims, along with ‘Isa [Jesus], son of Mary, will kill the Jews.” The idea in Islam that the end times will be marked by Muslims killing Jews comes from the prophet Muhammad himself, who said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'” This is, not unexpectedly, a favorite motif among contemporary jihadists. On March 30, 2007, a spokesman for Hamas, Dr. Ismail Radwan, said on Palestinian Authority television:

    The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: “Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!”

    We must remind our Arab and Muslim nation, its leaders and people, its scholars and students, remind them that Palestine and the Al Aqsa mosque will not be liberated through summits nor by international resolutions, but it will be liberated through the rifle. It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since this occupation knows no language but the language of force…. O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere…. Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!

    The history of Jews who lived under Muslim rule is a more or less unbroken record of theologically sanctioned humiliation and wretchedness. Like the Christians, Jews were allowed to practice their religion within restrictions, but they were seldom allowed to forget their humiliation. Although the strictness with which the laws of dhimmitude (the subservient status of Jews and Christians) were enforced varied, they were never abolished, and during times of relaxation the subject populations always lived in fear that they would be enforced with new stringency. Muslim rulers did not forget that the Qur’an mandates that both Jews and Christians must “feel themselves subdued.” One notable instance is recounted by the Arab historian Phillip Hitti: “The caliph al-Mutawakkil in 850 and 854 decreed that Christians and Jews should affix wooden images of devils to their houses, level their graves even with the ground, wear outer garments of honey color, i.e. yellow, put two honey-colored patches on the clothes of their slaves, … and ride only on mules and asses with wooden saddles marked by two pomegranate-like balls on the cantle.” A millennium later, in 1888, little had changed. A Tunisian Jew noted:

    The Jew is prohibited in this country to wear the same clothes as a Muslim and may not wear a red tarbush. He can be seen to bow down with his whole body to a Muslim child and permit him the traditional privilege of striking him in the face, a gesture that can prove to be of the gravest consequence. Indeed, the present writer has received such blows. In such matters the offenders act with complete impunity, for this has been the custom from time immemorial.

    In 1291 Isaac ben Samuel, a noted Kabbalist and Palestinian Jew, sought refuge in a Christian-controlled area of Spain after the collapse of the last Crusader kingdom in the Levant. He explained, “For, in the eyes of the Muslims, the children of Israel are as open to abuse as an unprotected field. Even in their law and statutes they rule that the testimony of a Muslim is always to be believed against that of a Jew. For this reason our rabbis of blessed memory have said, ‘Rather beneath the yoke of Edom [Christendom] than that of Ishmael [Islam]. They [the rabbis] plead for mercy before the Holy One, Blessed be He, saying, ‘Master of the World, either let us live beneath Thy shadow or else beneath that of the children of Edom’ (Talmud, Gittin 17a).”

    Ben Samuel’s choice of Christian Spain is paradoxical, as Muslim Spain was supposed to have been a famous exception to the oppression of Jews that prevailed elsewhere among both Muslims and Christians. Islamic apologist Karen Armstrong enunciates the common wisdom when she says that “until 1492, Jews and Christians lived peaceably and productively together in Muslim Spain–a coexistence that was impossible elsewhere in Europe.” Even the U.S. State Department has proclaimed that “during the Islamic period in Spain, Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived together in peace and mutual respect, creating a diverse society in which vibrant exchanges of ideas took place.”

    Yet the philosopher Maimonides, a Jew who lived for a time in Muslim Spain and then fled that supposedly tolerant and pluralistic land, remarked, “You know, my brethren, that on account of our sins God has cast us into the midst of this people, the nation of Ishmael, who persecute us severely, and who devise ways to harm us and to debase us….No nation has ever done more harm to Israel. None has matched it in debasing and humiliating us. None has been able to reduce us as they have….We have borne their imposed degradation, their lies, and absurdities, which are beyond human power to bear.”

    Notably, Maimonides directed that Jews could teach rabbinic law to Christians, but not to Muslims. For Muslims, he said, will interpret what they are taught “according to their erroneous principles and they will oppress us. [F]or this reason … they hate all [non-Muslims] who live among them.” But the Christians, he said, “admit that the text of the Torah, such as we have it, is intact”–as opposed to the Islamic view that the Jews and Christians have corrupted their scriptures. Christians, continued Maimonides, “do not find in their religious law any contradiction with ours.”

    Even María Rosa Menocal, in her romantic and fantastic hagiography of Muslim Spain, The Ornament of the World, acknowledges the second-class status to which Jews and Christians were relegated there. “In return for this freedom of religious conscience the Peoples of the Book (pagans had no such privilege) were required to pay a special tax–no Muslims paid taxes–and to observe a number of restrictive regulations: Christians and Jews were prohibited from attempting to proselytize Muslims, from building new places of worship, from displaying crosses or ringing bells. In sum, they were forbidden most public displays of their religious rituals.”

    According to historian Richard Fletcher, “Moorish Spain was not a tolerant and enlightened society even in its most cultivated epoch.” On December 30, 1066, about four thousand Jews in Granada were murdered by rioting Muslim mobs–more than would be killed in the Crusaders’ infamous Rhineland pogroms of the mid-twelfth century. What enraged the Granadan Muslims was the political power of the Jewish vizier Samuel ibn Naghrila and his son Joseph: the mob resented the fact that these men had authority over Muslims, which they saw as a “breach of sharia.” The mob was incited to kill the Jews by a poem composed by Muslim jurist Abu Ishaq: “I myself arrived in Granada and saw that these Jews were meddling in its affairs. … So hasten to slaughter them as a good work whereby you will earn God’s favor, and offer them up in sacrifice, a well-fattened ram.”

    The mob heeded his call. A Muslim chronicler (and later sultan of Granada), ‘Abd Allah, said that “both the common people and the nobles were disgusted by the cunning of the Jews, the notorious changes they had brought in the order of things, and the positions they occupied in violation of their pact [of second-class status].” He recounted that the mob “put every Jew in the city to the sword and took vast quantities of their property.”

    “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews…” — Qur’an 5:82.

    “Egyptian Cleric Hussam Fawzi Jabar: Hitler Was Right to Do What He Did to the Jews,” from MEMRITV, July 11 (thanks to Inexion):

    Following are excerpts from a religious program hosted by Egyptian cleric Hussam Fawzi Jabar, which aired on Al-Nas TV on July 11, 2010:

    Hussam Fawzi Jabar: This is the nature of the Jews. By nature, they abhor keeping their commitments. By nature, they hate peace. By nature, they love treachery, betrayal, deception, killing, and blood. This is their nature.


    It is very sad to see some of our own people, who speak our own tongue, try to convince their peoples that the Jews are peace-loving, that a solution to the satisfaction of both parties can be reached with them. I say that whoever says this and tries to convince others should either deny what is said in the Koran and the Sunna, and accept what the Jews say as truth, or else deny what the Jews say and accept what is said in the Koran and the Sunna. There is no third alternative….


    One of the most amazing things I have read is that Hitler said: “I could have annihilated all the Jews of the world, but I left some of them, so that you would understand why I did this to them.” Hitler was right to say what he said and to do what he did to the Jews….


    In Communist and atheist Russia, they would put the Muslims into meat grinders, and they would come out from the other side as minced meat or cold cuts. All this because [the Russians] believe in a religion other than Islam.

    Yes, that all happened, and that was why. Of course.

    However, as long as the sauds own US presidents, nothing positive can happen. Al-Haramain should have looked like the moon the second that sauds were shown to have caused 9-11.

    Katherina asks: “So where’s Hussein Obama’s outrage, like in Egypt and Libya – even to the extent of arming Muslim terrorist rebels in Libya?” And where’s the outrage of Obama’s leftist warhawks so eager to perform “humanitarian” work in Libya? Where’s the outrage about the Muslim Brotherhood consolidating its power in Egypt? Well, Katherina, it doesn’t exist, and don’t hold your breath waiting for it. You won’t see any outrage. Just sanctimonious appeals to Israel to withdraw to its pre-1948 borders, and then everyone will dance around a Maypole singing “We are the World.”

    Wait! You might ask, “What “pre-1948 borders”?? Israel didn’t exist then! There you go. Obama and company would rather Israel didn’t exist. They would rather see Israel negotiate itself out of existence. So, it would make sense that Obama is willing to arm Muslim “rebels” in Libya but not lift a finger or a raise a hackle about Hizballah’s preparation for the next war with Israel. I think the evidence is clear that he is anti-Semitic and pro-Arab and especially pro-Muslim. He is demonstrably anti-American, as well. There are a dozen countries whose citizens are being “massacred” by their governments – Zimbabwe, the Sudan, Indonesia, Venezuela, Pakistan, Iran – but Obama chooses to “aid” alleged “rebels” who wish to establish another Islamic “republic.” Remember that he opposed Bush’s Iraq war and everything Bush did. So did Hillary Clinton, whose husband declared war on the Serbs in favor of the Bosnian Muslims.

    But this is an instance of Obama’s hypocrisy or inconsistency. This is Obama the Nihilist sticking to his agenda. This man needs to be voted out of office before he succeeds in destroying the U.S., as well as Israel.

    It is said that the reason Israel failed to defeat Hezbollah in the 2006 War is that inside moles within Israeli Military passed on maps of where Israel Military thought the underground bunkers were.

    It is probable that Israel, by releasing the maps , is actually playing a cat and mouse game of disinformation.

    And moles are probably inevitable in the Israeli Army since Israel has a large and rising Arab population who cannot been seen as exempt from service in the Israeli Army.

    I suppose bunker-busting bombs will come in useful. But what is happening here? Will Israel win the next border war with Hezbollah?

  28. says

    Solution: Nutron bombs. A neutron bomb, or enhanced radiation weapon (ERW), is a type of nuclear weapon designed specifically to release a large portion of its energy as energetic neutron radiation rather than explosive energy. Although their extreme blast and heat effects are not eliminated, it is the enormous radiation released by ERWs that is meant to be a major source of casualties. Such radiation is able to penetrate buildings and armored vehicles to kill personnel that would otherwise be protected from the explosion.

  29. says

    If this crap goes to Facebook I’m quitting jihadwatch, too screwy.

    These new bunkers are nothing new inside the IDF/IAF and other elite units inside Israel. The sad thing it the clear distinction of rules below the Litani River and a lil ole base right over the border of my daughters residence Acco( Acre) in which the Islamist anti-semites have been acting more like cannibals than “religion of peace” neighbors. Thankfully my daughter is safe BUT does need an armed guard to take her to work somedays( orders from IDF in which her husband is sayer’et Mak’tal) in which she works( undisclosed) area creating ummm a vaccine for the gasses in the “tipped” missiles.

    Of course that’s only what she tells me. The Islamists are so nice, the only want to make certain all Jews are porotected “dhimmi” class as they once were, free labor and all. Does anyone remember a few years prior to the 2006 war when the small town of ( I forget) was given over to Gaza/Hamkas and they destroyed everything then had the audacity to start firing their lil Qassams( aka Flying Garbage Cans) into Ashkelon? Sadly all this nasty propaganda will never get through to the UN nor our empty headed wanna be Cliphate as long as Ahmadinnajad feels Barack Hussein Obama has destroyed America the great satan enough…..12th caliphate, war in Libya, tossing out all old leaders and throwing in Muslim B-hood rats, such a sweet democracy where even google pulls the murders of Copts and Christians from You Tube.

    Yepper, religion of peace, and Libya? Why Libya? Not M-B-hood enough? Our own governement ( America) has truly turned against its people, and in Israel, Obama has made certain we are no longer allied, depite what “we the people” say or want. Watch out before I start quoting bible verses.

    Which raises a question: does anybody really intend to save Lebanon and Israel?

  31. says

    The Norwegian elite, katharina, are particularly biased against Israel. Just two days ago (March 29th) on the Wall Street Journal opinion page, Alan Dershowitz, Professor of Law at Harvard and author of many books, including several on Israel, wrote about the fact that he was told by the three leading universities in Norway that his presence was not welcome if he was going to speak positively about Israel. Dershowitz spoke anyway to student groups but without official university authorization. Of course, and as Dershowitz duly noted, those academics who have harsh things to say about Israel are regularly welcomed by the academic elite in Norway. Shameful. Stupid too.

    Israel releases map showing 1000 underground military sites operated by Hizballah

    Well, I knew southern Lebanon was pockmarked with weapons sites, and this confirms it.


    Many of the sites on the map are located south of the Litani River in Lebanon, the zone where Hezbollah is banned from keeping weapons under the U.N.-sponsored truce that ended Israel’s summer 2006 war with the guerrilla group.

    Does the useless United Nations have anything to say about this? They are”through incompetence, fear, or actual complicity”providing the fig leaf that Hizb’allah needs to stockpile weaponry for use against Israel.

    It reminds me of what I have read about Hitler remilitarizing the Rhineland before launching WWII, while the rest of the world assiduously tried to avoid noticing.

    Katharina, I agree with you, Wellington, Papa Whiskey, Poetcomic, and Alarmed Pig Farmer’s comments. While Europe in general is disturbingly appeasing of Islam, Norway seems to be almost aggressive in their appeasement, if that isn’t an oxymoron.

    Between the appalling headline above and the “feminist” college professor who wrote the unbelievable apologia for *Muslim rape* of Norwegian women a couple of years ago, Norway may be the first country in Europe to unstintingly”and suicidally”embrace full Islamization.

    If they have this attitude vis-a-vis Hamas, I cannot imagine their view of the equally homicidal Hizb’allah can be any different.

    Wellington, there seems to be evil atmosphere in europe right now – the West d Judeo-Christain civilization are forced to bow down to Islam. But what’s most disgusting,this is caused by the treacherous Western Left; but unfortunately, they’re winning, even in Germany here. Even Cameron is behaving more like a Socialist than a Conservative – the arrogance of the rebellious youth has something to do with it!) During the weekend, I had a conversation with a group of educated Middle-calss/elite Westerners who love the environment more than humanity. When I mentioned about the history of the foundation of Islam and Mohammad’s savagery, they looked at me with disbelief; they couldn’t be bothered to read up on the truths and Islam is untouchable topic for them. Humanity kept getting murdered by Islam, is fine with them – but they’ll choke with anger with environmental issues. And then they will go on voting the increasingly Arab/Turkish-Muslim controlled Leftie/Liberal coalition especially the European Green parties (in Germany this leftie coalition might win the next Federal election – they have just won greatly in regional election), who’re more concerned about bringing in more voters from Islamic culture into Europe; especially the incoming scary exodus landing in Italy from Tunisia and Libya. These comfort-zone “lovey-doveys” seemed to completely forget all the great sacrifice of their ancestors who fought to save Europe and Judeo-Christian civilization from Islamic savage invasion, that caused the Crusade.

    You’ve described very well several European students I have taught here in America over the years. They’re far more ignorant than they realize but, oh yes, the environment is so important to them. They don’t realize (ironically since virtually all were not religious) they’ve made environmentalism into a substitute religion. One Norwegian I taught, a nice kid I must say, told me after I criticized Arafat in class that what I said astonsihed him because in all his years in Norway he had never once read or heard anything negative about Arafat.

    Yep, Europe is indeed in big trouble and most of the youth of Europe are proceeding blithely into the future without knowledge they should have and with pseudo-knowledge they accept as gospel. Not good.

    What a hustle. You have an extensive geologic record proving that over last two million years long-cycle incidence of temperature vasciallation waves indicate carbon dioxide spikes consistently coming 800 yrs AFTER the temperature spike. So, we have an effect occuring prior to its cause. Forget the selective sampling and biased modelling, it was a miraculous scientific discovery to learn that causes occuring after effects.

Do you really believe we can take on the entire world, including America? We’re not that big, maybe you’ve noticed (just look at the map and all other factors), and don’t have unlimited resources or the status of a superpower. The West puts enormous pressure on us and won’t listen. They don’t undersatnd the Middle East nor care to understand.

    If you want to save any non-Muslim existence in the Middle East the West should get its act together, understand what it’s dealing with and support its allies rather than its enemies. If not, if the West couldn’t care less, don’t blame us for not doing more. The Christians had their chance. If they all joined hands with us together we could have driven the PLO, Syria and Iran-Hizballah out of Lebanon which is in both our interests. Now it’s too late, they already lost their country, and nobody in the West cares. All they care about is protecting the gazillion poor, innocent, peaceful, humanitarian Muslims from the aggressive, evil, inhuman, blood thirsty, baby killer Jews.

    Dortmund Stadium bombing thwarted?
    Here, the police found packages with timer

    Stop distributed?
    Police take down 25 packages were on the edge of the access roads to the stadium deponiertFoto: Andreas Buck1 of 431.03.2011 2:34 pm Dortmund – Borussia Dortmund alarm! The Federal Criminal Police Office may have an explosives attack on the stadium of Bundesliga (“Signal Iduna Park”) thwarted! The investigators found packages with timer in the immediate vicinity of the stadium. A 25 years German was arrested – his motive is still unclear.
    In a spectacular action, investigators raised from page information on the night of Thursday of Earth deposits with “explosive suspect objects”. In the apartment of 25, the police found many chemicals and other suspicious items.
    Stadion Dortmund “Signal Iduna Park” photo: dpaDrei suspicious packages with timer were deposited on the way to the stadium. Wanted the man kill arriving fans in the Bundesliga, BVB against Hannover 96 next Saturday? Or was it blackmail?
    “The forensic investigations on the question of a possible functioning of the explosive suspected items, as well as the possible use of any chemicals take on.” “After an initial assessment was however not expected an acute threat to the population”, was announced by the BKA.
    The BKA was already active in February. An anonymous whistleblower had made contact with the German Embassy in Islamabad (Pakistan) email, and wanted to provide information to two allegedly by a group planned attacks in Germany.
    But the caller was even suspected by his extensive knowledge of the construction of explosives.
    As a result, the BKA took over investigations of suspected of preparing an explosive crime against the man.
    Based on a linguistic analysis of E-Mails, the investigators established a connection to an unsolved case from the year 2010: at that time, the same man had tried to blackmail a company!
    In a hotel in Cologne, the police arrested the 25 year-old German. Recently, the man had apparently threatened with the attack on the Dortmund Stadium!
    In a first hearing, he admitted to having filed three charges in the area of the stadium. These were also found by investigators near the “Signal Iduna Park”, the former Westfalen Stadium.
    In the apartment of the man, the BKA ensured many chemicals and three “explosive suspicious objects”.
    According to the Ministry of the Interior has the possibly planned bomb attack “no references to terrorism or Islamist organisations”.
    A spokesman for the Federal Interior Ministry in Berlin said: “It is the accused apparently an individuals with general criminal motives.”
    The League home game of BVB against Hannover 96 on Saturday will be according to Dortmund police as planned to take place.
    “With the results of the investigation published by the Federal Criminal Police Office, the Dortmund police sees no threat for the visitors of the Signal Iduna Park”, it said.
    Hannover 96 Club Chief Martin child said “I am appalled,” after the announcement of the arrest. “I can not imagine, that are capable of football fans to such considerations”, the President added.

    Dear Lillian,
    I read your last comment with interest, though on a few important points I found myself in disagreement.

    But I didn’t understand your last sentence. Are you saying that U.S. conservative politicians are fascists? If so, that’s as much of an error as claiming that the Democratic party in the U.S. is a communist party.

  45. says

    @Lillian -You are right, technically speaking, Nazi Germany was not actually socialism. It was corporatism, an economic and social system not exactly the same as socialism. But corporatism was very different from free-enterprise capitalism. Neither corporatism nor socialism was, or is, normal capitalism. Far from it, in both cases. But what’s even more important to know is that currently the theories held and promoted by today’s leftists are mostly versions of corporatism but they don’t call it that. They call themselves “democratic socialists” or some such, but really they should call themselves “democratic corporatists”. I’m talking about the whole leftwing of the US Democratic party, for instance. Mussolini coined the moniker “fascism”, and he explicitly also referred to it as Italian Corporatism. Hitler’s Nazi’s developed a similar corporatism based on Mussolini’s system.

  46. says

    Karl Marx was antisemitic (yes, he was an ethnic Jew, but his father converted the family and he didn’t grow up in the Jewish community, but absorbed the antisemitic atmosphere of the time).

    Goebbels said the Nazis were antisemitic both from a nationalist standpoint and a socialist standpoint.

    More importantly the Soviets had many reasons to hate Israel (mostly our alliance with the US which caused them some damage, but also the will of many Soviet Jews since the late 60s to leave for Israel) and disseminate extreme anti-Israel propaganda among their devotees in the West. The far left sees the US as the evil empire and Israel as its pawn in the Middle East (which was the Soviet line).

    Though it’s true that the benign type of socialists combatted the antisemitism of their time as well as other forms of racism. Indeed many Jews were/are socialists.

    I came to the conclusion ideology doesn’t really matter. Sometimes it comes from the far right, sometimes from the far left, sometimes from Christians, sometimes from atheists (who see the Jews as only a religious community and won’t change their minds even if you explain to them because if they’ll recognize the Jews are also an ethnic-cultural-national group it will cancel their justification for destroying Israel).

  47. says

    Indeed, it’s odd to call the American conservatives fascists, but it’s a regular on the far left. Besides, Lillian said there are only right wing fascist leaders on both sides of the Atlantic, which means also the American liberals are right wing fascists, and even the European social-democrats. One wonders what kind of a regime or a political order would Lillian consider non-right-wing-fascist.

  48. says

    The thing is the international opinion is translated into actions, which can be fatal to Israel. I fear the West more than I fear the Muslims, because we depend on the West both militarily (we can’t have an independent military industry because we’re too small and therfore depend on arms supply from the West, and they have applied arms embargo in the past and many are talking about it today) and economically.

    When the Muslims realized they can’t defeat Israel militarily they started this vast propaganda campaign, going on for decades now, to make the West abandon and isolate Israel like a pariah. That will suffocate our economy, disarm us and render us defenseless, and that’s what’s going to kill us.

    Listening to the radio a few yrs ago, there was a guy from LA visiting his in-laws up here in Minnesota. He just had to call in to this radio show cuz it was driving him crazy to hear discussion about the limited oil reserves in the ANWAR.

    He had just retired from a career as shift manager at the giant refinery in Torrance, California (just south of LAX).

    He said that when a tanker pulled in with Mexican crude, the boat would sit for 2 days, empty, and leave. When a tanker was coming in from the north with ANWAR oil, he scheduled his guys for OT, and the tanker, the same size as the one from Mexico, would sit there for several days.

    Various types of oil have different yields. The LA guy said ANWAR crude has the highest yield in the world, much greater than Arabian crude, maybe as much as 7 to 10 times higher in yield.

I mean, imagine having high ranking Germans or Japanese in the British or American army in WWII. Today there are high ranking Muslims in various American security apparatuses… Anyway, as far as I can remember there wasn’t even one case of treason among high ranking Arab officers at least in my lifetime. There were cases of treason of high ranking Jews…
