Call them the “Rachel Pancake Brigades” or useful idiots; these misguided fools are a danger to themselves and all of us:
International Solidarity Movement members pose with Palestinian terrorists. Â Holding guns are ISM volunteers from Sweden (lives in Ireland) and Scotland. Â Standing on right is anÂ Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorist.
Every day we hear of the horrors committed by Israel. We hear about poor “peace” activists likeÂ Rachel Corrie crushed beneath an IDF bulldozer after she stupidly knelt in front of it. We hear about “unarmed peace” activists being shot by IDF forces boarding aÂ Gaza flotilla ship. We hear about “peaceful”Â protesters being killed by non-lethal crowd control methods.
Of course, that’s only what the “peace” activists are willing to reveal because the ultimate goal is to demonize Israel. What you don’t hear is how these “peace” activists are being treated by the very people they are trying to help.
Two activists have exposed a disturbing phenomenon that they say is an open secret within the “peace camp”: female “peace” activists are routinely harassed and raped by the Arabs of Judea and Samaria with whom they have come to identify. They say the phenomenon has gotten worse lately and that many foreign women end up as wives of local Arabs against their will, but cannot escape their new homes….”These are not just cases of rape carried out to satisfy lust,” [Yehudah Bello] writes. “Usually, they are carried out systematically in order to make the girl pregnant and then take her as a wife â€“ after she converts to Islam, of course. We know about this system from the stories of women who underwent a similar process within Israel and escaped to Europe. But it is hard to escape from the Palestinian territories. Sometimes these women â€“ some of whom are no longer young â€“ are never allowed to leave their homes unaccompanied, in order to forestall their escape.”
If someone were to compare the list of foreign female activists who enter Judea and Samaria to the list of those who leave, Bello claims, the magnitude of the phenomenon would be proven. “Everyone knows about it, but no one dares talk about it. The Palestinians have been turned into martyrs. In the Middle Eastern television channels, IDF soldiers are represented as the brutal rapists, who rape Palestinian women.”
Verbal assaults, sexual assaults, rape, forced marriages, imprisonment – all Islamic values as exemplified byÂ Islam’s perfect man.
Where are the likes of Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, who so vehementlyÂ defend Islam in spite Islamic terrorism? Do they also defend Islam in spite of it’s misogynistic nature? Where are Rosie O’Donnell and Ellen DeGeneres, who have become vocal advocates for feminism by breaking away from the “oppression” of male dominated societies?
Do these women have no concern for women victimized by Islamic ideology and culture? Or maybe their concern is outweighed by their fear of being called “racists” if they dare criticize the religion of perpetual rage.
Or maybe, they simply don’t care about anything beyond their own narrow vision of the world – a world where Israel and Sarah Palin are evil incarnate and peace will prevail for all once those two have been eradicated from the earth.
These “peace” activists are being sacrificed to the misogynistic cult of political correctness. My two cents? Let Palestine keep them.
