Israel’s Derelict Leaders:Arab Terror Skyrockets In Jerusalem;Police Ordered To “Stand Down”!What’s Going On? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

{re-blogged at Jews Down Under}

{re-blogged at Islam Exposed}

AS an investigative journalist – an American-Israeli and a patriot – it is incumbent to reveal the seedy underbelly of America’s betrayers. Even more so, respective to those who lead Israel, there is no holding back, come what may. Egregiously, too many self-proclaimed Zionists in Israel and the diaspora believe that airing “dirty laundry” will endanger the nation. Hogwash. If anything, it will help save the – one and only – Jewish homeland.

MOREOVER, it is not a question of genuflection to this one and that, for this blogger is not beholden to anyone. A free agent. Yes, this is the way it’s going to remain. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t personally pain, when revealing the ultimate in betrayals, at least when it comes to ones (American) birthplace and one’s Jewish heart, Israel. Searing.

THAT being said and for the record, on the other hand, it is not pleasant to be threatened (and dogged) by leftists and Islamists for continuously spilling the beans on their plans, as well as who’s who that bears watching. Okay. An American patriot’s cross to bear. 

SIMILARLY, Israeli leftists – Islam’s coddlers – and their diaspora comrades (Jews and non-Jews alike) are none too pleased with said fact-finding(s) and outing(s). Understood. בָּרוּר . But none of their harping will stop the truth from seeping forth, in relationship to those whose political “feet of clay” – whether from the left or the so-called right – imperil the nation. Intolerable.

SO if certain Israeli leftists (and squishy, pliable “rightists”) don’t want their dirty laundry revealed, it’s just too damn bad. Deal with it. Get a grip.

PARADOXICALLY, for different reasons, PM Netanyahu’s cheerleaders insist on protecting his “strategies” like an etrog (אֶתְרוֹג), opining: he is the only one who can lead from the “right”! Well, said nonsense doesn’t register on this end. Some of us can’t be fooled, nor cowed. Even more so, a well received op-ed at American Thinker – re-posted at Israeli sites – ripped the mask off of the so-called “right-wing” leadership in Israel.

IT is with the above in mind that the all too familiar, unremitting, long tolerated Arab/Muslim terror within Israel – most acutely felt in Jerusalem – comes into sharp relief. Indeed, Jerusalem, the thousands yr old Jewish capital, is the epicenter of Arab/Muslim/leftist rage. Consequentially, wresting it from Jewish hands is their Number One priority. They understand all too well, sans Zion there will NO longer be a Jewish state. Period. That’s their plan. Their modus operandi.

AS such, an interview at Inquisitr, “The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot”, brought many facts home:

Adina Kutnicki: If one truly seeks the historical truth, one should keenly listen to what the Arab leadership enjoin when speaking before their own brothers and sisters, as opposed to the taqiyya (Sharia-derived dissimulation) spewed for western ears. Thus, the following is a sampling, but by no means exhaustive: Fathi Hammad, Hamas’s Minister of the Interior and National Security, had this to say, ” Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.” Likewise, Zuheir Muhsin, late member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s Executive Council, intoned: ” The existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian State is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel.” Similarly, Hussein bin Talal, late King of Jordan, opined,” The appearance of the Palestinian personality comes as an answer to Israel’s claim that Palestine is Jewish.” To be exact, the late, non-lamented Chairman Arafat – the Palestinian godfather of suicide terror, schooled by the KGB, but I digress – was Egyptian-born! Thereby, isn’t it appropriate to posit: Shouldn’t “straight out of the horse’s mouth” proofs be more than enough evidence, to finally put to bed the lies spun on behalf of the Palestinian narrative? Consequently, shouldn’t Israel’s leaders be the first to hammer these historical truths into the world’s consciousness?…..

The Inquisitr Interviews Adina Kutnicki: The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot

As to Jerusalem, the heart and soul of Zion (in the same realm as Judea and Samaria), whither it goes, so too does the fate of Israel, as well as the Jewish people. It is inconceivable that Israel would survive without Jerusalem intact, and dare I suggest, there would be little reason left for its existence, sans an intact eternal capital. It is one tragedy if enemies capture it from Jewish hands, but it is a wholly different paradigm if Israel’s leaders surrender it on their own. So the question still hangs: Are Israel’s leaders capable of dividing holy Zion? One would hope and pray this is not the case, but the jury is still out. Personally, I would put nothing past some of the leadership and they bear close scrutiny. Very close….

WHICH brings us to the recent Arab/Muslim onslaught in Jerusalem; the third intifada/revolutionary uprising! Yes, Israel is plagued with another intifada, despite the braying of Israel’s leadership to the contrary. Those of us with eyes in our head understand that the current unrelenting terror attacks in Jerusalem (for months on end) are a mirror image to those incited by the (late, non-lamented) godfather of modern terrorism, “Chairman” Arafat, Israel’s former “peace partner”! 

MOST recently, an Arab/Muslim terrorist from east Jerusalem (having served time in an Israeli prison for terror-related crimes, yet released through Israel’s notorious “revolving (jail) door” for Arabs/Muslims) mowed down a 3 month old baby in her stroller, and maimed almost a dozen others! This comes on the heels of months of firebomb/arson, rock throwing and associated terror attacks.

Chaya Zisel Braun

Shimon Helperin, the infant’s grandfather, told Arutz Sheva that the Braun family – which had been waiting for a child for years – had been returning from prayers at the Western Wall (Kotel) when they were struck by the terrorist. Helperin and his wife had arrived in Israel specifically to meet their grandchild on Wednesday and was forced to go immediately to the hospital, instead. 

The Arab driver has now been confirmed (7:40 pm IST) to have been resident of the Shiloach/Silwan neighborhood and a member of Hamas – and to have served in Israeli prison before for terrorism, according to Police Spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld.

“This is a natural response to the crimes of the occupation and invasion of our land by the Jews, particularly on the Al-Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount – ed.),” Hamas spokesman Hossam Badran stated on official Hamas television.

Hamas television has also confirmed the identity of the terrorist – who was shot and wounded by police, but is not dead, as initially reported in the press – as 21 year-old Abdelrahman Shaludeh of Shiloach (Silwan). Shaludeh had previously served in Israeli prison for terrorist activities…..

The driver, Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, is seen in the video giving a speech honoring Marwan Kawasme and Amar Abu Aysha, the Hebron residents who carried out the abductions and murders of the Israeli teens

ويتحدث عن اختطاف الجنود في الخليل من قبل حركة حماس ..#جنـوٍد_مخيـم_قلنديـآ

THE urgent questions become: why haven’t Israel’s vaunted police/security forces been able to clamp down on the terror-infected capital? and what part(s) has PM Netanyahu (the buck stops with him, he gives the security arms their marching orders) played in keeping the Jerusalem police force’s “hands in their pockets”?

IN answer to question one, the police are getting restless, they too are tired of being the whipping boys for the shackles placed upon them due to PM Netanyahu, even though the Security Minister is receiving the blame. Mind you, as ineffective as he is, he takes his orders from PM Netanyahu. Don’t dare forget this.

Arab rioter in Jerusalem's 'silent intifada'

A Border Patrol officer serving in eastern Jerusalem has for the first time revealed the police helplessness in dealing with the “silent intifada” that has been gripping the capital in recent months, as Arab rock, firebomb and even gunfire attacks rise sharply.

Speaking on Channel 2‘s “Shesh Im” TV program Thursday, a day after a Hamas terrorist wounded nine with his car including a three-month-old babywho was killed in the attack, the officer admitted the Border Patrol warriors are forced to “stand like dolls” against the Arab terror.

“We feel like our hands are tied,” the combat officer revealed, placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of Interior Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich for the collapse in security.

According to the officer, senior captains as well as Aharonovich are trying to calm things down and hush up the “silent intifada” rather than fight Arab terror to the end….

IN response to question 2, “and what part(s) has PM Netanyahu (the buck stops with him, he gives the security arms their marching orders) played in keeping the Jerusalem police force’s “hands in their pockets”…drip, drip…

Former senior Shabak (Israel Security Agency) officer Menahem Landau on Friday warned that attempts to ignore the “silent intifada” plaguing Jerusalem and continue as if nothing happened will only encourage more terror attacks.

Landau spoke to Arutz Sheva about the situation after a Hamas terrorist wounded nine people in Jerusalem with his car Wednesday, murdering a three-month-old baby and critically wounding an 18-year-old seminary girl.

“We are witnesses to the fact that this business has not stopped for three months already, and the more they succeed (in attacks) it will entice more and more terrorist attackers,” said Landau. “They see there isn’t a strong hand on our side, so they will continue.”

The statement comes a day after a Border Patrol officer serving in Jerusalem complained “our hands our tied,” revealing the police have been limited from above in their ability to quash the terrorism gripping the capital. {blogger’s note: where “from above”, perhaps a birdie is whispering in their ears from the sky?}

According to Landau, Jerusalem Police need to exercise a strong arm against the Arab rioters: “it can’t be that they are shooting fireworks at officers and they just disperse them, why don’t they give them a quick judgment and arrest them?”

MOST significantly, one would be foolish in the extreme to believe PM Netanyahu (and his lackeys) when they reflexively intone after every attack: there will be the “harshest response” to future terror!  

“Bibi”, stop embarrassing yourself, humiliating and enraging the majority Zionist public and admit: Washington controls your moves, as Obama Inc. dictates: don’t dare touch the Arabs/Muslims! Moreover, it is reported that the authentic Zionist public won’t continue to sit still for the bluster and lies. In fact, they have warned the regime: stop playing with us! Knowing this segment of the public full well – better than most – the political echelon should take their words seriously.

IN essence, the more others pester not to “spill the beans” (blah, blah…accusing this investigative journalist of tarnishing Israel’s image…their incessant mantra), the clearer it becomes that it is the right thing to do. For if they have nothing to hide regarding “dear leader(s)”, then what are they worried about? Precisely.

BESIDES, little is as important, other than demonstrating how the so-called “strategies” – emanating from atop Israel’s leadership – are harming the Jewish homeland. And if that means that heat is going to come this way, as is said, bring it on! 

BUT to further highlight PM Netanyahu’s dereliction of duty, little is more emblematic than this summer’s-long fiery war with Hamas, albeit coined an “operation” by the powers that be, political and military.

Atop the above outrages, PM Netanyahu has reportedly agreed to revert back to the parameters of the last “cease-fire”. Said “negotiations” were executed after hard-fought gains during “Operation Pillar of Cloud” in October 2012, but before the IDF could finish Hamas off! Déjà vu. Is this not a pattern of malfeasance? You decide.

For good measure, this go-around, PM Netanyahu even added in some additional goodies, just as long as they “cease” their “fire”. Now, you tell me, what was the strategic calculus, the benefit, to this latest “operation”, if only to land up at the same “understandings” (and worse off) from 2012? In fact, several Likud Ministers have publicly expressed outrage at PM Netanyahu’s irrational decisions. As a matter of record, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz put it bluntly, when speaking with BBC’s Hardtalk ( ), but he stopped short of the full truth. No matter.

“”We paid a very expensive price with 70 casualties on our side, with people that have to flee their homes in the south of Israel because of the daily barrages of rockets and mortars. This is a heavy price for a democratic state to pay,” concluded Steinitz.

While Netanyahu’s office has declared the operation a victory, noting that Hamas was seriously damaged in the clash and didn’t receive it’s extravagant demands, the details of the ceasefire agreement have raised serious criticism in Israel.

Palestinian Authority (PA) delegation head Azzam al-Ahmed revealed Tuesday night that Israel agreed to ease the borders on Gaza and allow humanitarian and even some construction goods in immediately, as well as lifting restrictions on the fishing zone.

The deal also paves the way for talks in a month in which Hamas will demand a sea and airport in Gaza, and will negotiate a swap of hundreds of terrorists for the bodies of IDF soldiers Second Lt. Hadar Goldin and First Sgt. Oron Shaul hy”d, who were killed in the operation.

Israel’s lone demand of disarming Gaza was flatly rejected in the deal, putting discussions on the request off until later discussions in a month’s time.”

You got that?

Now, there are many reasons (some are detailed at this interview, others are not) why PM Netanyahu continually caves and fails to execute his sworn obligation to vanquish declared genocidal foes….

SACH HA’KOL, at the end of it all, you know who you are; blind as bats, circling the (leadership) wagon citizens, terrified to stare down the truth, even when it smacks you in the face and can get you and your loved ones (never mind other Zionists) killed in the process!

BUCK up. For some much need backbone, these same Jewish cowards may want to view the following clip for a different perspective, if they can withstand its true meaning. 

MOST significantly, for those who truly care about effective, long-term strategies to protect Israel from the increasing onslaught, internalize this: sans a robust public diplomacy campaign (elucidated within the Israel Institute For Strategic Studies) none of PM Netanyahu’s band aid approaches amount to a hill of beans.

EACH “fix” is akin to “one step forward, two steps backward”. Are such “strategies” even rational? and are they worthy of being protected at all costs, even if dirty laundry tumbles forth? 

Israel’s Strategic Disasters Tie Into Its Fatally Flawed Political System: “Regime Change” Will Usher In Authentic Self-Determination…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Hot on the heels of this blogger’s recent interview with Inquisitr’s political editor, Wolff Bachner – – one cannot help but see the handwriting on the wall pertaining to the catastrophe which awaits Israel, if a volte face in strategic policy is not undertaken post haste. One needn’t be a psychic to extrapolate within all the guideposts, but one does have to possess a solid modicum of regional acumen, plus a deep understanding of Israel’s inherently flawed political system.

YET before we undertake said journey, a review of Dr. Martin Sherman’s latest Jerusalem Post column is mandatory reading. It will set the stage, thus, explaining Israel’s grave strategic crisis, irrespective of events currently encircling her borders. After all, Israel has never been in the same neighborhood as Kansas, but its strategic disasters keep piling on! Therefore, ‘My Prediction: Please help prove it wrong!’  – – is imperative to absorb. And once completed, his interview (June 12, 2013) with Israel’s most popular radio host, Tamar Yonah (enjoying a world wide audience) on Israel National Radio, is a must listen – . They piggyback each other. He is the master of Israel’s strategic domain –

Having fully absorbed its contents, readers are ready to internalize how Israel got from there to here, thus understanding how Israel’s fatally flawed political/electoral system underlies crisis after crisis. And for this lesson we turn to Professor Paul Eidelberg (, unarguably Israel’s foremost expert on its political system. In addition, a primer is presented through this blogger’s analysis at American Thinker, ‘The Paradox of Israeli Politics:Vote Right, Get Left’. It contributes to said discussion and (hopefully) breaks things down into easily digestible components –

Onto the main thesis….

‘National Self-Determination in Israel Requires “Regime Change”

Prof. Paul Eidelberg  

National self-determination in Israel has been violated by the anti-Zionist policy of “Land for Peace” (LFP). Like his predecessor, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is wedded to this left-wing inspired policy. However, by virtue of his being the leader of the Likud Party, which most Israelis mistakenly deem Zionist, he has become the greatest danger to Israel’s survival. (Tzippi Livni would not have dared endorse a Palestinian state as Bibi explicitly did on June 14, 2009.)

In pursuing LFP with the Palestinian Authority (PA), Netanyahu has been outsmarted by the Arabs. While he sees that the success of LFP requires the cooperation of the Arabs, the Arabs see that the success of this policy would kill the goose that has laid their golden eggs! I allude to the hundreds of millions of dollars the Arabs have received each year from the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, thanks to PA’s unceasing terrorist attacks. The difference in perception consists in the fact that terrorism pays, whereas peace sucks.

The biggest suckers are the Israelis, who have paid in blood and treasure for the intellectually bankrupt policy of “land for peace.” Their leaders have also fostered the absurd notion that this policy is also mandated by democracy, a notion that misleads Israelis who proudly believe they live in a democracy. After all, in what democracy do voters have a choice between 33 parties to lead their country? Our misled Israelis ignore the fact that no matter which party (or party coalition) has been elected to lead their country since 1993, the government invariably pursues the policy of “land for peace,” even though this policy has resulted to date in 15,000 Jewish casualties!

It’s obvious that changing parties has not stopped Israel’s territorial retreat or even diminished worldwide hostility toward the Jewish state. It seems that more important than Jewish casualties is the preservation of Israel’s inept system of multiparty cabinet government, the result of Proportional Representation with a low electoral threshold, which this has endowed Israel with the reputation of being a democracy—than which nothing is more sacred.

It matters not that after exercising their political freedom on Election Day, the citizens of Israel actually relapse into servitude, forced to experience the undeviating and degrading policy of “land for peace” that has soaked Israel in Jewish blood.

How charming are the new parties that so often spring up in democratic Israel thanks to its low electoral threshold. Too bad they invariably fall in lock-step with the policy of “land for peace” which Israel’s leaders have imposed on their people. But what more can be expected of Israeli prime ministers who prefer to appease the murderers of Jewish men, women, and children rather than kill them? Of course, these cretins and cravens can provide all sorts of excuses for their cowardice and imbecility. Like Muslims, they adopt the pose of victimhood vis-à-vis the Great White Father, Uncle Sam, on whose arms and alms they rely for their salvation. Lacking heart or spiritedness, they also lack intellect—a teaching of C. S. Lewis’s charming little book The Abolition of Man, one of whose chapters is entitled “men without chests.”

Israel’s political system has not produced men with chests, men who are not enthralled by the policy of territory for peace. Israel therefore needs much more than another multiparty election. Needed is nothing less than “regime change,” and this can only be initiated by the people, a people fed up with Israel’s obsolete and decrepit system of government.

The question then arises, “How can Israelis, proud of their democracy, be aroused to want regime change?  Obviously, one must first show that Israeli democracy as a myth. This I have done in books and in countless articles. Since polls have indicated that 90% of the public regards Israel’s government as corrupt, as consisting of job-seekers animated by personal and partisan interests instead of the common good, the public opinion required for regime change exists, but it needs to be galvanized. For this purpose one needs a man—or a woman—with a chest.

He or she will find helpful ideas in Eric Hoffer, The True Believer as well as in present writer’s book The Myth of Israeli Democracy. The latter elucidates the main ideas and general structure of a normative democracy based on Judaic principles further elaborated in various books of mine. I suggest that a small team consisting of respected and talented men and women be formed to initiate a Jewish movement for regime change. National self-determination in Israel requires a Judaic reconstruction of the state. To my inevitable nay-Sayers I conclude with these words of the Alter of Kelm: “Ask not if a thing is possible; ask only if it is necessary.”

To be sure, in comparison to the juntas surrounding Israel, its political apparatus is a paragon of democracy and stability. However, its bastardized electoral system contributes to untold strategic disasters, thereby, Israel’s leadership are incapable of executing long-term nation-saving policies. More often than not, they operate in their own self interest, totally unaccountable to anyone but their main handlers – domestic and foreign. 

IF anything, “regime change”, via a complete overhaul of the system, can’t come soon enough. Hopefully it is not too late.

London’s Islamic-Inspired/Sanctioned Head Chopping; Cameron’s Hideous Response; And Boston’s Jihad, Cause & Effect…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Strikingly, even the beheading of a soldier in broad daylight won’t stop the dodging, weaving and spinning from British/western authorities. If a volte face does not occur immediately it will become verily impossible for Cameron (other leaders too) to keep his head on straight – no pun intended.

Western leaders have been warned from all angles; from the Islamic barbarians themselves and via alternative media, as we scream about cause (Islam) and effect (jihad by the sword). YET, they are still not paying practical heed to the wreckage from their multi-cultural, psychotic, counter intuitive experimentation. For if this wasn’t the case, how could it be that Cameron (and others) still ! blathers that Islam does not condone said terror, and that Muslims are oh, so appalled by said beheading, even as their co-coreligionists scream “Allahu Akbar” (see video)… blind as bat leaders…bastards to boot – Recklessly and mendaciously they opine, yes, Islam is a  “religion of peace”! How many more heads have to fly off to cause them to ‘fess up? Their experiment failed to the gravest degree imaginable, and they must reverse course. Forthwith.

It goes without saying, certain actions are beyond the pale and head chopping surely qualifies as such. Now far be it from this blog to beat to death the same topic – over and over again – but there is no other option. It is what it is. Don’t blame the messenger.

In light of the west’s craven dhimmitude, is it any wonder that Allah- wielding hackers feel free to ply their jihad – And even in Israel, surely where its leaders have more than enough experience with Islamic barbarians – head choppers & all – they still pine to make “peace”…have they too lost their minds? – But it is not as if the Ramallah lynch (in 2000) shouldn’t have been a clue, not only to Israel’s leaders, but to western ones in toto – .   

And in case it hasn’t been made clear enough, just as in Boston’s jihad, so too were the jihadists in London known to the authorities, yet nothing was done to scoop them up! In fact, these pages alerted the public about the dangers surrounding Boston (and elsewhere), months before urban jihad blew up in their faces –

So as outraged as this blog was when the Chechens waged jihad through the streets of Boston there was no element of surprise – was to be expected.

In London as in Boston, terrorist-killers were known to security services’
DEBKAfile Special Report May 23, 2013
One of the Woolwich terrorists after murdering British soldier

One of the Woolwich terrorists after murdering British soldier

The two Islamist terrorists who hacked a British soldier to death on a London street Wednesday, May 22, chanting Allahu Akbar, were born in Britain of Nigerian descent and known to British security authorities. Motivated by revenge for Muslem deaths in Afghanistan, they selected as their victim a soldier from the Woolwich barracks who had served there. One of the terrorists was identified as Michael Adebolajo, 28, a convert to Islam and self-styled Muslim preacher from a street stand, from which he handed out leaflets condemning the British government and troops fighting in Muslim lands.

His stand was located in the southeastern London suburb of Woolwich, not far from the Royal Artillery barracks near which he committed his savage murder.
Adelbolajo’s crime was long planned. He spent time watching the soldiers coming and going around the barracks. He may even have singled out his victim from a chance acquaintance.
Thursday, the day after the murder, British anti-terrorist operatives carried out searches at various London addresses which the terrorist had used as a student at Greenwich University.
The British authorities have made no statements about arrests or even the interrogation of either of the two terrorists, who are in separate hospitals recovering from police gunshots.

Neither have they revealed why the accumulation of carving knives, a machete and a firearm in their possession never attracted notice. The police are also extremely cagey about the two men’s friends and contacts. As in the case of the Boston Marathon bombing, the relevant information began seeping out by chance much later.

The extreme savagery of the killing in broad daylight on a busy London street, culminating in a beheading, recalled the fate of Western hostages at the hands of Al Qaeda’s Iraq commander Musab al-Zarqawi in the years between 2004 and 2006. His custom of beheading victims became a hallmark of al Qaeda savagery.
What also stands out about this episode is that the jihadis did not run away, but waved their blood-stained hands in the faces of horrified passersby, boasting: “We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. The British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth!”
The British government held two “Cobra” emergency committee meetings, whose deliberations were kept secret. Its first response to the discovery that this horrific crime was committed by homegrown terrorists was to assign official spokesmen to make as their main theme the drawing of a strong distinction between Islamist terrorism and the large Muslim communities living in most British towns.

Prime Minister David Cameron set the tone in his address to the nation by declaring that nothing in Islam justified this crime and branding the terrorists traitors to Islam.

DEBKAfile reported after the murder Wednesday:

The terrorists drove up to their victim in a car, jumped out and after the murder wandered about in the area, apparently lying in wait for more soldiers to come out of the Royal Artillery barracks 400 meters from the site of their attack.

London police reached the scene after 20 minutes after they were summoned. When the two killers ran towards them brandishing knives and a firearm, police officers shot and injured them. They were taken to separate hospitals and placed under heavy guard in case of attempts to rescue them.
Police sources said later they were treating the incident as a politically-motivated Islamist terror attack without identifying the killers.

In the absence of Prime Minister David Cameron, Home Minister Theresa May summoned the Cobra emergency committee into urgent session. After examining intelligence input, the committee must decide whether the Woolwich outrage was a lone incident or raise the terrorist alert level in London and the rest of the country. Cameron cut short his trip to Paris and returned to London Wednesday night.

How many more will literally be sacrificed on the altar of multi-culturalism, appeasement, dhimmitude and debasement before a full reckoning ensues? It is becoming increasingly clear that a mass (western) uprising is bubbling under the surface and once it explodes, well, the authorities will have no choice but to step back and let it rip. As indicated: they have been warned.

The Inquisitr Interviews Adina Kutnicki: The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot

Today, The Inquisitr presents a no holds barred interview with Adina Kutnicki, a respected investigative journalist, op-ed writer, Israeli patriot and an outspoken Zionist who believes in the right of her country to exist and be recognized as the nation of the Jewish people. She has experienced the harsh reality of the conflict in the Middle East and she is not afraid to tell the truth, without all the political doublespeak and nonsense that so many world leaders and so-called experts pour out to the media. Adina is concerned about the survival of Israel as vile Jew hatred raises its despicable voice throughout the world and the calls for another Holocaust grow louder every day.

The Jewish people have maintained a continuous presence in Israel for more than 3200 years and they have been the majority population in Jerusalem since the first recorded census in 1852 CE. Despite thousands of years of Jewish civilization, there are those who would spread the lie that the Jews are European invaders who have no right to live in Israel. They have created a false narrative that claims European Jews exploited the Holocaust to pressure the world into creating Israel; ignoring the fact that Israel existed more than a thousand years before the birth of Mohammad and Jews have been praying “Next Year In Jerusalem” since the Romans burned the Second Temple in 70 CE. They ignore the endless cycle of terrorism and violence against Jews throughout the world and they ignore the refusal of the 56 Islamic nations to recognize Israel as the one Jewish nation.

Sadly, there are Jews in Israel, Europe and the United States who are among the most vocal critics of Israel and they constantly advocate for suicidal, unilateral concessions to the Arab world in the name of peace. The post-Zionist, peace camp in Israel has used millions of dollars donated by hostile foreign governments to fund a destructive media campaign and delegitimize their own nation. Israel is being reduced to pariah status, denied the right to self defense and pressured to make endless concessions to an implacable foe who refuses to even sit down and negotiate.

Adina Kutnicki wages a daily struggle to make sense of the relentless assault on the legitimacy of Israel. We invited her here today to answer our questions and speak her mind about the nation she loves. So let us begin our interview with a proud Zionist and a daughter of Israel, Adina Kutnicki:
Wolff Bachner: Adina, you were born in the United States and then decided to make Aliyah to Israel and become an Israeli citizen. What inspired you to move to Israel and embrace the Zionist dream of rebuilding the ancient Jewish homeland?

Adina Kutnicki: Wolff, thank you for inviting me to The Inquisitr. Hopefully, I will be able to shed some desperately needed light on what it means to be a Zionist, and an outspoken, non-apologetic one at that. To be sure, one does not wake up one morning and decide to uproot oneself – especially from a very comfortable life in the U.S. – and live in Israel.

That being said, having been raised in a home where the rebirth of Zion was seen as a miracle and a continuation of our Jewish legacy, initiated a lifelong love for the land of Israel, particularly Judea and Samaria; the heartland of our Jewish fore-bearers Upon getting married, it was natural to raise children who would develop the same sense of identity and outright pride.

In this regard, it was understood that at some point we, as a family, would make our home in Israel, but not before our sons finished their schooling in the U.S. They both made aliyah at different times during 2007. While the plan was to “follow” them, and in the interim to wind down a thriving corporate tax practice, my beloved husband Frank, z”l (of blessed memory) passed away very suddenly in the beginning of 2008. This meant that I would be making aliyah under much more trying circumstances, to say the least.

Nevertheless, I could think of no better way to honor his memory than to continue with the robust activism I was involved in while living in the U.S. – via op-eds and other measures – now that I have come “home”. He took much pride in every aspect of my efforts, even when it became apparent that “poking the bear” was generating some non-admirers. My work is ongoing, as well as multi-faceted, irrespective of other factors.

Wolff Bachner: How dangerous is life in Israel and how serious is the threat to Israel’s survival from her Arab Neighbors?

Adina Kutnicki: This is a loaded question, simply because on a daily basis life in Israel is just as normal (and routine) as in any other democratic nation, although the constant presence of IDF soldiers throughout its cities (and thankfully so), in tandem with the inspection of ones bags/cars at various venues, is not exactly “normal”. But the U.S. will surely have to adopt some of these measures, particularly in the aftermath of Boston’s urban jihad.

Be that as it may, there is no other democracy as imperiled as Israel, simply by dint of the fact that many world actors (in unison with civil society elitists) continually call for its elimination, albeit some are more circumspect than others. As a matter of record, aside from incessant exhortations from the Iranian Hilter – as he calls for Israel’s total obliteration and he means every word of it – as well as non-stop terror attacks from the PA/Fatah/Hamas junta (Israel’s erstwhile “peace” partners), the fact of the matter is that the region is fully primed for a MEGA explosion, even in juxtaposition to its usual upheavals.

Alas, the current chaos can be traced directly back to Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s indecorous unseating of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s strong arm dictator for decades. While hardly a democrat, he understood very well which actors would become unleashed, if the status quo was tampered with. As a result, the much ballyhooed “Arab Spring” turned into an Arab Nightmare, untethering jihadist forces in warp speed. So if blame is to be assigned to the current catastrophe – and it is one – it must start at the Commander-in-Chief’s door, as he shrilly dictated to Mubarak – GO NOW!
Concomitantly, as this is being written, Israel’s northern front with Syria, as well as its border with Lebanon, is a tinderbox. Hezbollah’s terror brigades, in concert with Iranian militia forces, are poised to strike at Israel’s Golan. And with Israel barely the size of some counties in the U.S., let alone relative to its states, the notion that “only” one part of Israel is in the cross hairs is patently and dangerously misguided. Absurd too. Extrapolating therein, it is essential to understand the following: the Golan has been quiet for over forty years, but this is no longer the case. Most significantly, now that Al-Qaeda has entered the fray via Libya’s Benghazigate, the fear which deterred Assad from starting another war with Israel is no longer a factor. Desperate to save his regime, he has openly welcomed Russian and Iranian proxies to fight on his behalf. This has tipped the “balance of regional terror”, and its effects will soon play out on Israel’s borders. The readers should internalize, in the middle of all this chaos the Iranian centrifuges keep spinning, as such, the ensuing conflagration suits them well.

Wolff Bachner: In the West, reality is being re-written and the facts of history are being left in the dust. We are now told that the Middle East Conflict is a war over land that began in 1948 when the UN voted to accept Israel as a member nation and the fighting intensified only after Israel reunited Jerusalem during the 1967 war.

Yet, according to an important Islamic Hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari written in 846 CE and considered second in authenticity only to the Qur’an, Mohammed proclaimed, “The Day of Resurrection will not arrive until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew is hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” This Hadith has been used since the day it was written more than 1150 years ago as permission from Allah and his Prophet Mohammad to enslave and murder Jews with impunity.

Is the conflict between Israel and the Arab / Muslim world about land or the result of a 1400 year old religious war being waged by Islam against the Jewish people based on the teachings of the Qur’an and the relentless Jew Hate of Islamic doctrine?

Adina Kutnicki: You raise the most significant question of all, and tragically the most misunderstood and misconstrued. But it must first be recognized, from the onset, the answers herein are not merely applicable to Israel, but to the entire west.

The relentless war waged against Israel has absolutely nothing to do with land per se, and this is precisely why every insane concession, gesture and withdrawal offered by Israel’s (peace-obsessed) leaders has not elicited an expected reciprocal peace gesture, but paradoxically incites to additional jihadist behavior. And in a tangible realm it makes sense for Arabs/Muslims to become hyper-aggressive, particularly after each Israeli capitulation counter intuitively whets their insatiable appetites for more of the same. So as a result of the leadership’s desperate attempt to allay international pressure, thus abating another dangling sword, they have become wedded to peace delusions. A double whammy. Never mind the fact that murderous jihad hasn’t ceased within Israel from time immemorial. But logic escapes many of Israel’s “leading lights”, except for a handful. At the top of the list heralding Israel’s “intellectual warriors” stand Dr. Martin Sherman and Professor Paul Eidelberg.

In furtherance to the above question, a core component can be found within a groundbreaking policy paper written by Professor Paul Eidelberg. I had the honor and distinct privilege to participate in its review. Therefore, due to its efficacy, I am providing a link, and it will no doubt answer the heretofore inexplicable: Where is the relentless Jew hatred emanating from? .

Yet the saying, “First the Saturday People, then the Sunday People”, has never been more relevant nor acute, as global jihad swathes across every corner of the world. Essentially, the same religious “holy” war raging against Israel (and by extension to the Jewish people) is meting out against Christians. Their slaughter will continue apace, as long as Islamic overlords hold sway. To wit, it is no longer a question of whether or not there is a clash between civilizations. That ship has sailed. The west is drowning in “infidel” blood, as mandated by Islamic doctrinal Sharia Law.

Wolff Bachner: Who exactly are the Palestinians? Are they native inhabitants of the region, or as many historians have claimed, are they descendants of invading Muslim armies and the families of guest workers brought into the area as cheap labor in the early 20th century by the British to undermine the rebirth of Israel?

Adina Kutnicki: If one truly seeks the historical truth, one should keenly listen to what the Arab leadership enjoin when speaking before their own brothers and sisters, as opposed to the taqiyya (Sharia-derived dissimulation) spewed for western ears. Thus, the following is a sampling, but by no means exhaustive: Fathi Hammad, Hamas’s Minister of the Interior and National Security, had this to say, ” Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.” Likewise, Zuheir Muhsin, late member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s Executive Council, intoned: ” The existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian State is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel.” Similarly, Hussein bin Talal, late King of Jordan, opined,” The appearance of the Palestinian personality comes as an answer to Israel’s claim that Palestine is Jewish.” To be exact, the late, non-lamented Chairman Arafat – the Palestinian godfather of suicide terror, schooled by the KGB, but I digress – was Egyptian-born! Thereby, isn’t it appropriate to posit: Shouldn’t “straight out of the horse’s mouth” proofs be more than enough evidence, to finally put to bed the lies spun on behalf of the Palestinian narrative? Consequently, shouldn’t Israel’s leaders be the first to hammer these historical truths into the world’s consciousness?

  • Israel at 60: What Happened to the Zionist Dream?

Wolff Bachner: Zionism was once the proud hope and dream of millions of exiled Jews. Now, in the revisionist 21st century, people are starting to use the word “Zionist” as a derogatory term and a UN Committee even declared Zionism to be racism.

What exactly is Zionism and why has the world come to look upon Zionism with such contempt?

Adina Kutnicki: Zionism embodies the authentic longing of Jews to return home to Zion. In its essence, it is the Jewish national movement of rebirth and renewal in the historical birthplace of the Jewish people. And as you pointed out at the onset with the ringing words “Next Year In Jerusalem”, Jerusalem is indeed the epicenter of Zion, as is Judea and Samaria. It is for this reason why wresting these Jewish holy areas away from Israel is a central component to Arab/Muslim jihad. To be sure, once this goal is accomplished, the rest of Israel is completely in their sights. Moreover, when a Jewish couple marries under the chuppah, a core emotion is evinced within these glorious words from Psalm 137: ” If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy…”

In conjunction, Israel stands between globalists who prefer to erase all borders, and it is a state which is indeed nationalist at its root. Adding to the cauldron, tiny Israel is perceived as a festering boil to the billion plus Arabs/Muslims who seek her destruction. So it makes perfect sense, under the above template, for the UN (an irredeemably hostile host for anti-Israel bashing) to equate Zionism to racism. It was designed to evoke apartheid-like images, and tragically it has been wildly successful in its bludgeoning.

Wolff Bachner: As I mentioned in my introduction, there is a terrible conflict between the majority of Jews who support Israel and a well funded, highly organized minority of Jews who have worked over time to delegitimize the state of Israel.

Why would Jews turn against the one safe haven on earth for the Jewish people and stand with her enemies who have sworn to wipe Israel off the face of the earth?

Just how serious of a problem is the Post-Zionist movement in Israel and how are they able to get away with behavior that many Jews feel is simply treasonous?

Adina Kutnicki: First and foremost, the Post-Zionist movement in Israel is replete within every sector where civil society elitists permeate. They burrow deeply inside the political and military hierarchies and their tentacles reach within academia, media, legal, cultural and public diplomacy arenas. Many are leftist ideologues, but some are simply well paid whores, handsomely provided for by various foreign-funded NGO’s, all in order to ply their wares. The New Israel Fund (among others) is a major umbrella front for those who seek to delegitimize Israel as the Jewish national homeland. On the other hand, it is estimated that a very small fraction (approximately 3%) of the Jewish majority public veers to the left. Nevertheless, the majority’s wishes are continually marginalized, and herein lies much of the rancor and push back from nationalist Jews, of which I am immeasurably aligned with.

Adding to the morass, the fact that Israel has yet to adopt a Constitution (Professor Paul Eidelberg, a renowned American-Israeli political scientist cited above – a PhD from the University of Chicago – has drafted/shaped many of Israel’s future Constitutional components, and they are held within the Knesset as place markers) muddies the waters. In word and deed, this is a fatal flaw which allows many offenses – which would otherwise be deemed treasonous – to fly under the radar, despite Israel’s Basic Laws.

As to the mental aberration, why Jews (hailing chiefly from the left) side with sworn enemies, well, this is a question which Dr. Kenneth Levin, a Harvard psychiatrist, as well as a PhD historian from Princeton, answered in his masterpiece; a monumental, epoch feat of scholarship “The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People Under Siege.” To make a long story short (and to save myself from a throbbing headache…this subject irks to no end), a chronically besieged people – and the Jewish people qualify like none other – often end up internalizing the hatred and delude themselves about the malevolent intent of their enemies. The visceral, non-quenching hatred is too onerous to bear, therefore, fantasy becomes blurred with reality. Feeling totally out of control, they invent a fairy tale, not unlike chronically abused children. But this is just its tip, the rest must be gleaned through the book itself. It is an eye opener and jaw dropper.

Wolff Bachner: Are the Ultra Orthodox exerting an improper influence on Israeli politics and do they need to make a greater effort to assimilate to a modern Jewish state?

Do you feel the Ultra Orthodox should be required by law to participate in National service? Should the subsidies that allow some religious Jews to spend a lifetime studying the Torah without working or serving in the military be cut back or eliminated?

Adina Kutnicki: Once again, you expose another red hot button issue, one which I cover in various op-eds and commentaries. Briefly, the issue of improper influence is dependent upon how many arms are twisted (in a metaphorical sense) in order to garner the results desired by a particular party. There are various Ultra Orthodox parties (and don’t get me started on the Arab/leftist parties and their undue influence), but suffice it to say, Shas has been known to “break” a few bones. What is less known is that its top leadership (and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is really the titular head) veer to the left and are ready to forfeit much of the Jewish patrimony – the so called “settlements” in Judea and Samaria – to gain “peace”. Now, not being a cynical sort, it occurs to me that by hewing to said leftist tilt they are better situated to play ball with those who often hold sway over Israel’s financial handouts.

As to National Service, there are two components to it; IDF trained and general national/community service. Now there shouldn’t be a one size fits all for fulfilling ones national obligations, however, there should be some core guidelines. In other words, those who are physically capable of recruitment into the combat forces must be drafted into one branch or another. But just because my sons are IDF Reservists doesn’t mean that this should be the case across the board. Basically, if one is unable to meet set combat or support service standards, there is an infinite list of national projects which require many helping hands, particularly in a country where war is always around the corner.

As such, it is unthinkable and unseemly (and this goes doubly for the Arab population, one which benefits from all of Israel’s social/educational/medical/welfare services, yet is not mandated to perform National Service…their free ride has to stop too, but IDF recruitment for the Arab sector should be limited to those few who have proven to be loyal citizens) that the Ultra Orthodox continues to receive massive welfare benefits and stipends without contributing to the country in a defined way. This goes for males and females alike.

Nevertheless, the concept of lifetime, subsidized study of Torah is fraught with minefields. In the main, while Israel is unique unto itself in that its basis is derived from its Jewish patrimony, this does not give a mandate to able-bodied citizens to sit and learn all day, while others support their lifestyle. But it is important to differentiate between those who are bench warmers, juxtaposed against men who are true scholars. Because let’s face it, sitting and “learning” all day is often the path of least resistance. Yet individuals whose invaluable scholarship will eventually become the inspiration and knowledge base for future generations must be allowed to continue doing so, and in an honorable way, free of castigation and contempt. And there are qualified ways to test who belongs in this exceptional track. But only students who meet said intellectual rigors should be allowed to receive government stipends. The rest must serve and then head towards (via academic or technical/vocational tracks) gainful employment. Most inherently, Orthodox Judaism encourages a meaningful balance between Torah study and work, and it is termed “Torah V’madah.” Simple as that.

Wolff Bachner: In your own writing, you have been quite outspoken about the Israeli government’s abusive treatment of the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria (Gaza and the West Bank). They were encouraged by Israel’s leaders to move into the territories after 1967 and build entire communities, but since 2005 they have been uprooted time and time again by the order of the Israeli government.

What is the legal status of Judea and Samaria? Wasn’t the land promised to Israel in 1924 under the San Remo doctrine, which is considered irrevocable international law under the UN’s founding charter? Isn’t Judea and Samaria actually Jewish land and don’t Israelis have the right to settle in these areas?

Why are Israeli leaders treating their own citizens which such brutality and contempt, as we have seen over and over in the gruesome videos of Israeli soldiers and police viciously assaulting Jewish settlers and destroying their homes with tanks and bulldozers?

Adina Kutnicki: Wolff, you keep hitting them out of the ballpark. Herein lies another lightning rod question which requires much needed edification (and disinfectant) for the general public.

The legal status of Judea and Samaria is currently “disputed” territories, even after Israel recaptured its (San Remo codified) heartland from an annihilatory waged war in 1967. Besides, whatever happened to “the victor goes the spoils” ? Regardless,”occupied” territories has become the accepted lexicon and tragically Israel’s left keeps trotting out the “occupation”, as if it is a truth derived from Sinai. Adding to the crux of the matter, it is absolutely, irrefutably the legal case that San Remo bestowed Palestine to the Jewish people. San Remo bases itself on Article 22 of the League of Nations, as such, ” a sacred trust of civilization” was declared and this Mandate created a Jewish national home in Palestine (incidentally, Palestine is the pejorative name given to Judea by the Roman Emperor Hadrian, over 2,000 years ago, as a reminder of the Philistines, an ancient enemy of the Jewish people). Even more so, the following clause was significantly added: “Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.” The legal case is closed, or so it would seem. But when it comes to Jewish title to their historical, legal, biblical birthright, nothing is as it should be. Up is down and wrong is right. Is it any wonder that evil is now reconstituted as good? For a complete education on the subject I refer the readers to Howard Grief’s (an eminent international legal expert) tour de force ” The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel Under International Law.” What a fountain of (legal) truth.

As to Israel’s leaders…where to begin? A good place to commence is through a basic understanding of Israel’s political system – an (un)holy mess. In this vein, I penned an op-ed at American Thinker (reprinted at The Jewish Press) entitled ” The Paradox of Israeli Politics: Vote Right, Get Left.” To be precise, due to this glaring paradox, whereby the majority public elects a generally right wing leadership, citizens find themselves governed from the left. The reasons are manifestly beyond the scope of this forum, but a simple google search will direct interested readers to the aforementioned article.

In any case, this dysfunction explains how PM Sharon (and others have followed suit) was able to defy the will of the majority electorate who carried him to victory. Hence, he ordered the unilateral “disengagement” from Gush Katif (aka Gaza) and the northern Shomron, as he directed Israel’s citizen soldiers to bulldoze thriving Jewish communities, all the while over 8,600 lawful, taxpaying citizens were expelled – almost as if by fiat – even defying a referendum in the process. Orwellian. If any other western leadership behaved in such a brutish, non-democratic manner towards its Jewish citizens, well, all hell would have broken loose. Not to be lost in the discussion, had PM Sharon executed the same wholesale destruction towards its Arab citizens, then let’s just say that hell on earth would be more than an apt description. And in memory of the 6th year of said expulsion, another op-ed (“The Bitter Fruits of Disengagement“, August 19, 2011) was penned. It was featured at the Jewish Press and several other media outlets.

The above political pitfalls covers the “how” part of the question, and the “why” segment falls under the general purview of appeasement syndromes, not unlike Stockholm Syndrome. But as related above, its genesis lies in the Oslo “peace” process, thus, the “Oslo Syndrome” is highly applicable.

Wolff Bachner: The Netanyahu government seems dedicated to persecuting Israeli Jews who are Nationalists and believe in a strong Israel. Zionist patriots are prosecuted for hate speech if they say a word that is critical of Palestinians or Israeli officials and Rabbis are arrested for quoting Torah. Jewish homes in Israel proper are being destroyed by the Israeli authorities while Arabs squat and build with impunity on Jewish owned land. Israeli NGO’s accept millions of dollars of foreign money from nations and organizations that are openly hostile to Israel and use the money to defame Israel in the eyes of the world and endanger the lives of Israelis.

No other nation on the planet would tolerate hostile foreign governments undermining their national sovereignty and allow their citizens to accept money from those governments to attack the policies of their own country. Has the government of Israel lost its mind and its Jewish soul?

Is it now a crime in Israel to stand up for your country in the face of endless Muslim / Arab aggression and demand the government stop compromising with people who want to commit genocide against the Jewish people?

Adina Kutnicki: The Netanyahu government is emblematic of the disparate treatment meted out towards nationalist Jews, in contrast to kid glove treatment reserved for leftists and Arabists. It is entirely befuddling to those who are convinced that Israel has a nationalist leadership. While there are nationalists within, the overall policy is far from “right wing”. The left has a stranglehold on the justice/court system (Tzipi Livni, the current AG, is an avowed leftist), and its state prosecutors are beyond the pale. They haven’t met a Jewish nationalist who is not “guilty” and in need of “re-education”. Again, much of this lies within the scope of Israel’s broken parliamentary system of governance, whereby MK’s are not held accountable, hence, the lack of responsibility to a particular constituency.

As a matter of record, on behalf of my work with HONENU Legal Defense Organization – an Israeli non-profit designated to defend Israeli soldiers and citizens, free of charge, from legal traps which ensnare “settlers” and those who support their efforts – a series of investigations ensued. A centerpiece expose’ detailed a stunning indictment of Israel’s General Security Service (GSS), and as a reference point, its equivalent arm in the U.S. is the FBI. Instead of utilizing its frontal assault against a dangerous Arab fifth column, both inside the “green line” and in Judea and Samaria, it expends huge resources to entrap “settlers’, in the expectation that they will give up their defense of the heartland and just go “home” within Israel proper. Good luck with that. “Administrative Detention Orders Against Jewish Nationalists” (October 2011) delineates said internal struggle. Aside from its posting at HONENU, it can be found at the Freeman Center For Strategic Studies/The Freeman Blog. It is not easily digestible, so I apologize in advance for any ensuing heartburn.

I will leave it up to the readers to make their own determination, as to whether the leadership has lost its mind, its Jewish soul or both. It’s not a hard calculus to discern.

Wolff Bachner: On the matter of Jerusalem, I can not imagine a more terrible fate for the Jewish people, other than another Holocaust, than to see Jerusalem divided again. Not only would it cut the heart out of the Jewish spirit, but it would divide the tiny nation of Israel across the middle into two smaller, indefensible sections. Is it truly possible that Israel would actually give up half of Jerusalem to become the capital of Palestine?

Adina Kutnicki: As to Jerusalem, the heart and soul of Zion (in the same realm as Judea and Samaria), whither it goes, so too does the fate of Israel, as well as the Jewish people. It is inconceivable that Israel would survive without Jerusalem intact, and dare I suggest, there would be little reason left for its existence, sans an intact eternal capital. It is one tragedy if enemies capture it from Jewish hands, but it is a wholly different paradigm if Israel’s leaders surrender it on their own. So the question still hangs: Are Israel’s leaders capable of dividing holy Zion? One would hope and pray this is not the case, but the jury is still out. Personally, I would put nothing past some of the leadership and they bear close scrutiny. Very close.

Wolff Bachner: From a Washington Post editorial, (May 8, 2001) – “Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday [May 5, 2001] offered a vivid, if vile, demonstration of why he and his government are unworthy of respect or good relations with the United States or any other democratic country. Greeting Pope John Paul II in Damascus, Mr. Assad launched an attack on Jews that may rank as the most ignorant and crude speech delivered before the pope in his two decades of travel around the world. Comparing the suffering of the Palestinians to that of Jesus Christ, Mr. Assad said that the Jews ‘tried to kill the principles of all religions with the same mentality in which they betrayed Jesus Christ and the same way they tried to betray and kill the Prophet Muhammad.’ With that libel, the Syrian president stained both his country and the pope….”

Respected political columnist Richard Cohen wrote more than a decade ago, “The Arab world is the last bastion of unbridled, unashamed, unhidden and unbelievable anti-Semitism. Hitlerian myths get published in the popular press as incontrovertible truths. The Holocaust either gets minimized or denied….How the Arab world will ever come to terms with Israel when Israelis are portrayed as the devil incarnate is hard to figure out.”

Adina Kutnicki: In a nutshell – and this short answer is hardly meant to minimize the grave import and impact of Arab/Muslim anti-semitism – unless Islam undergoes a complete and total reformation, its adherents will never (until time immemorial) accept Jews as other than pigs, apes and monkeys, let alone the historical, legal and biblical heirs to Zion. This is the G-d’s honest truth. As is said, and that is that.
