Scenes from anÂ anti-Israel protestÂ – or Jew-hating festival – in Sydney on Sunday:
As you see, thisÂ protestÂ featured the yellow flag of the Hezbollah terrorist group, the black flag of the Taliban and jihadism, signs likening Israel to Nazi Germany and signs claiming the Jews are actuallyÂ descended from the Turkic Khazar empire, and therefore have no historic connection with the land of Israel.
Mass immigration has brought with it a virulent anti-semitism and a minority that shows a dangerous allegiance to groups which preach and practice extreme violence.
This racism, in our midst, is not remarked upon by the ABC.
The racism of Hamas, the rulers of Gaza, is also not remarked upon by the ABC, although it’s screamed out in not just its deeds butÂ its charter, in black and white:
For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave… The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
“The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree.” (cited by al-Bukhari and Muslim)…
When Islam will retake possession of [the means to] guide the life [of the Muslims], it will wipe out those organizations which are the enemy of humanity and Islam…
With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others… They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there. With their money they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies and achieving Zionist interests…
…they were behind World War I, when they were able to destroy the Islamic Caliphate… They were behind World War II… It was they who instigated the replacement of the League of Nations with the United Nations and the Security Council to enable them to rule the world through them. There is no war going on anywhere, without having their finger in it…
The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion… It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism… There is no way out except pooling together all the forces and energies to face this despicable Nazi-Tatar invasion.
SARAH FERGUSON: At the same time though, a number of leading Israeli writers, including Chemi Shalev, said it wasn’t a response to the killing of the young settlers, for example, but something bigger in Israel, an unchecked racism. Does Netanyahu at the same time take responsibility for allowing that racism to continue unchecked?
And it apparently assumes the poverty and militancy of Arab extremists is due simply to “inequality” – and one due not to Muslim Arab culture, moreover, but Jewish oppression:
SARAH FERGUSON: It’s not just writers talking about this. The former head of your own internal security service, the Shin Bet, Yuval Diskin, issued a scathing attack on your government just a couple of days ago for failing to deal with these issues, for failing to deal with Arab inequality in Israel, for allowing more settlement building. He knows what’s going on inside your country, doesn’t he?
MARK REGEV: He’s of course entitled to his opinion and he’s got a very clear political position in opposition to my Prime Minister and that’s his right in our democracy… Our Declaration of Independence promises equality for all our citizens and we are determined to get there, to make sure that all Israelis have an equal chance…
The reality on the ground is obviously not that and this is what Yuval Diskin is saying, that the – whatever is the result of this bombing campaign – and we’ll come to it in just a second – that the enormous pressures in the West Bank and inside Israel will remain whatever happens as a result…
The comes a barrage of questions implying that Israel is the aggressor, careless with Palestinian lives and needing to negotiate with a terrorist group whose charter in fact insists the only solution is the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews:
SARAH FERGUSON: Let’s just talk about the rocket attacks. Why would Israeli bomb a home for the disabled in Gaza?… There was a rocket attack on the home of the Gaza police chief. He has known sympathies to Hamas. At the same time, a number of children were killed in that attack. Do you take enough care to avoid those casualties, ‘cause it appears the answer is no?… You’re now talking about a potential ground offensive. The question I think that everybody is asking outside Israel and outside Gaza, Mark Regev, on behalf of your government is: where does this end?… You’re going to have to sit down with Hamas in order to secure that solution. Do you accept that?
More of the same from the ABC, which puts Israel under a scrutiny that Hamas terrorists are excused:
Gosh, anyone would think Israel started firing rockets first. Hayden Cooper, the ABC’s Lateline, July 10:
ISRAEL launched the operation Protective Edge on Tuesday and its army said it had hit more than 300 targets overnight, raising the total number of strikes so far to 750. Hamas has launched its own rockets across Israel, which have triggered sirens in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, but there have been no Israeli deaths so far.
Lateline guest tweeter Sarah Joseph, Castan Centre for Human Rights Law, Monash University, July 10:
750 strikes on Gaza from Israel. Unsure how many rockets from Gaza.
The facts. Israeli Defence Force spokesperson tweets during Lateline:
PALESTINIAN terrorists in Gaza have fired 96 rockets at Israel today, and 442 in the past three days.
The big difference between Israel and Hamas is, Israel uses its missiles to protect its people Hamas uses its people to protect its missiles.
The Jews of Australia – and anyone who prizes civilisation – should know the Greens are their enemy. FromÂ the speech to the anti-Israel rallyÂ by Greens MP Lee Rhiannon, ignoring the jihadist flags flying in front of her:
The root causes of the conflict are the decades-long illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza….
Israel is targeting the civilians of Gaza in these bombings and that is why it’s shameful and they are the war crime we condemn …
I don’t want to see rockets going into Israel but what we know is that this is a war of an oppressor Israel, against the oppressed the Palestinians. This is not a war of equal players and that is why we are united here in condemning Israel’s actions.
Bloody scary, this apologia for a terrorist group’s tactics.
