“Vicious, anti-Israel ads in New York subway,” by Pamela Geller in WND, March 26:
In typically disrespectful and offensive fashion, Muslim Americans (for “Palestine”) have issued the latest blood libel against the Jews on the holy day of Passover.
The Islamic supremacists announced triumphantly in a press release Friday that an “Israeli Apartheid ad” was going to begin to appear in New York train stations on Monday (Passover began Monday night). “The American Muslims for Palestine” described itself as a “national grassroots organization educating the public about Palestine and its rich cultural and historical heritage” — not an easy job to do for a made-up country and a fictional people.
They said that their new “nationwide outdoor advertising campaign” called for “an end to Israeli apartheid and to unconditional American aid for Israel.” And they said that the New York run was just the beginning, and that the ads would run elsewhere around the country as well.
And so again, with little fanfare and no outraged opposition or media firestorm or condemnation, Muslim Jew-haters are running their fourth repulsive anti-Semitic campaign in the New York City transit system. It is important to point out that it is these campaigns that were the impetus for the pro-Israel and #MyJihad campaigns of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI. And I can assure you that this latest Goebbels-style demonization of the Jews will not go unanswered. We are working feverishly right now to get ads responding to these ready for submission.
Apartheid? Anne Bayefsky notes that “there were once an estimated 900,000 Jews” in the Muslim world, “but today there are less than a few thousand.Â They were given a choice: Die, convert or flee.” That’s apartheid. The slaughter of gays across the Muslim world: that’s apartheid. The persecution of Christians across the Muslim world: that’s apartheid. The prohibition of non-Muslims from even entering Mecca: that’s apartheid. Muslims are freer in Israel than in any Muslim country.
This anti-Israel ad is exactly the technique that Hitler’s minions used. If you read the writings of Goebbels, the Nazi narrative was that they were the victims. They were the put-upon ones. That’s how they sold annihilation. And this is the same thing. It’s not surprising that Islamic supremacists would appropriate the propaganda methods of the Third Reich, as they partnered with Hitler and shared the same goal.
This war on the Jews has nothing to do with land. That’s the evil and fallacious narrative that the annihilationists and Jew-haters have appropriated to sell this steaming pile of dung to normalize the genocidal imperative of the Islamic jihad against the Jews.
It’s the Big Lie, and it has been going on since 1948. For that matter, it has been going on for 1,400 years. Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud (“Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad shall return”) is a frequently-heard war chant of genocidal jihadis, referring to Muhammad’s massacre of the remaining Jews of Arabia (the ones he hadn’t already killed, exiled or enslaved) at the oasis of Khaybar. Muhammad also suggested that Muslims could hasten the coming of the end times by murdering Jews, when he said that “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” (Sahih Muslim 6985).
Modern-day Muslims have taken this genocidal bloodlust to heart. One of our ads features a quote from a music video that ran on Hamas”s Al Aqsa TV: “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”
We are the only ones who are effectively countering this anti-Semitic propaganda campaign. We will be unveiling a new campaign this week to expose the lies and massive deceit about ongoing Islamic tyranny. Help us keep our pro-freedom ads going: contribute here.
