Palestine: End the Jew Hatred – End the Conflict

The universal international condemnation of the anti-Islamic film “Innocence of Muslims” – whilst defending at the same time the freedom of individuals to express those abhorrent views – has come in response to the anger and violence that has broken out in many Moslem populations around the world and cost the lives of the American Ambassador to Libya – J Christopher Stevens – and three other members at the Embassy in Benghazi on September 11…writes David Singer.
Such reactions need to be compared with the continuing failure to condemn, repudiate, and disassociate from the official policies of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Hamas when it comes to extreme vilification and denigration of Jews.
These vile statements do not emanate from individuals – but from organizations that seek to assume leadership roles in any future Palestinian Arab State.
The original PLO Charter in 1964 – contained the following provisions in Articles 7 and 18:

“Jews of Palestinian origin are considered Palestinians if they are willing to live peacefully and loyally in Palestine”

“The claims of historic and spiritual ties, ties between Jews and Palestine are not in agreement with the facts of history or with the true basis of sound statehood. Judaism because it is a divine religion is not a nationality with independent existence. Furthermore the Jews are not one people with an independent personality because they are citizens of the countries to which they belong.”

In 1968 these statements were revised and the following provisions appeared as part of Articles 6 and 20 in the newly adopted PLO Charter:

” The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians”

“ Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.”

In 1974 the PLO was appointed as the sole spokesman for the Palestinian Arabs – and its leader – Yasser Arafat – was welcomed to the United Nations with an olive branch in one hand and a gun in the other.
Since then the PLO has progressed its above declared racist policy of recovering every square meter of former Palestine and denying all Jews any right to Palestinian nationality in any part of former Palestine. It refuses to acknowledge Israel as the national home of the Jewish people.
The PLO is perfectly entitled to maintain and propagate its vile and racist program – but the civilized world should show its repugnance and rejection of such policy – and its refusal to recognize or endorse such a hate-filled program.
The President of the United States should refuse to welcome PLO leader – Mahmoud Abbas – to the White House or maintain any diplomatic discourse with the head of such an Organization. Let President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton issue such a declaration.
Other countries that have come out so strongly against “Innocence of Muslims” should be equally as responsive in rejecting the retention of these racist provisions in the constitution of an Organization they deal with.  Financial assistance – now running into billions of dollars – should be discontinued until these provisions are removed.
Should Islam – being a religion – indeed a divine religion – be treated by the world in the same way Islam seeks to denigrate the Jews?  Should the 56 Islamic member states forming the Organization of Islamic Co-Operation be denied any national identity or national recognition  as Islamic states?  Clearly  not.
At the same time Jews need to be treated differently by these Islamic states – which – with the exception of Egypt and Jordan – still have not recognized Israel after 64 years of concerted and ongoing efforts to deny the Jews a state in their biblical and ancestral homeland since Israel was established in 1948.
The 1988 Hamas Charter is equally as virulent in its steadfast opposition to Jews, Jewish statehood and Christianity – declaring in Article 13 (among many offensive provisions):

“Now and then the call goes out for the convening of an international conference to look for ways of solving the (Palestinian) question. Some accept, others reject the idea, for this or other reason, with one stipulation or more for consent to convening the conference and participating in it. Knowing the parties constituting the conference, their past and present attitudes towards Moslem problems, the Islamic Resistance Movement does not consider these conferences capable of realising the demands, restoring the rights or doing justice to the oppressed. These conferences are only ways of setting the infidels in the land of the Moslems as arbitrators. When did the infidels do justice to the believers?

“But the Jews will not be pleased with thee, neither the Christians, until thou follow their religion; say, The direction of Allah is the true direction. And verily if thou follow their desires, after the knowledge which hath been given thee, thou shalt find no patron or protector against Allah.” (The Cow – verse 120).

There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors. The Palestinian people know better than to consent to having their future, rights and fate toyed with. As in said in the honourable Hadith:

“The people of Syria are Allah’s lash in His land. He wreaks His vengeance through them against whomsoever He wishes among His slaves It is unthinkable that those who are double-faced among them should prosper over the faithful. They will certainly die out of grief and desperation.”

Hamas has been banned as a terrorist organization in many countries around the world.

That is not enough.

It should be similarly banned from any form of contact or receive financial assistance of any sort whatsoever whilst it retains such inflammatory and offensive statements in its Charter.

Those who meet with its officials and representatives should be condemned for engaging in and giving encouragement to such Jew-hating and Christianity-hating incitement.

Those who have voted such an organization into power and do nothing to seek a change in its Charter or to overthrow it – must bear the consequences of their decisions.

Jew-hatred – more than anything else – has been the driver in ending the 130 years old conflict between Jews and Arabs. It did not begin in 1967.

Until it is stamped out and removed from the official policies of those representing the Palestinian Arabs – no real resolution of the conflict between Jews and Arabs can ever occur.

Band aids – yes. But a lasting peace – never.

    I’d dare assume that David Singer is also implying that, even if a state of Palestine will be deemed officially valid by some artifice passing through the United Nations, whatever the mechanism, the CONFLICT as such between the palestinians as well as the vast majority of the islamic fraternity and Israel and Jews in general, will not stop.
    More so, a fully fledged palestinian state entity will claim the full gambit of internbational rights of “defence”, “national intergrity and sovereign right to design and run its own spoecific ethic profile etc. ” all intent on perpetuating a farcical status of perennial victims of…………..Zionism.
    Whetther skirmishes or more serious military incursions, or even a propper size war, a future palestinian state as intended by its offcials AND populace, is bound to perpetute the current state of conflict and, at the very fundmental core “value” of it, hatred of everything Jewish.
    My good and brilliant friend Paul has the finger on all essentials that determine a tangible causality of an ideology which seems immutable in its design to overwhelm the entire civilised ( and not so ) world.
    Behind the pantomimes of peaceful accommodation to the civilised norms, as seen recently only here in Sydney at the muslim leadership, we find, merely, a strategic shift which does not abandon the main existential purpose of a belief which has as its fundamental engine violence and intollerance.

    Yet, we must applaud the very efficient show of firmness by the Australian authorities, Police force in particular in stating that, on this land, at least, common sense, civilised behaviour rule !!!!

    I agree with Ethan and would further note
    1) Jews are a people by history, religion, genetics, culture, archeological evidence and language(s), as opposed to the Arabs who claim to be members of the “Palestinian” people. Those Arabs are no different to other Arabs, many of them were immigrants to the British mandate when Jews got the economy going and they were concocted by the KGB to contest the rights of the Jewish people. The biggest problem in this sphere is the global Jewish leadership that deceives itself into thinking that overlooking the enemy’s lies will result in peace; peace cannot be built on lies and liars don’t want peace.
    2) the 56 nations of the OIC see themselves as part of the Umma, the Moslem nation and it does not matter that they butcher each other with great delight. They also see themselves as superior and the riots are about asserting the superiority of Islam where the master “race” (now where did I previously hear that) can do and say anything it likes to dhimmis. On the other hand, by the Pact of Omar, the whole dhimmi community is subject to collective punishment if any of its members offends a Muslim or offends against shari’a. And that is what is happening around the world; the West is being put into its place and the leaders are trying to appease the Umma in the way dhimmis always have under mohammedan rule.
    3) by David Singer’s reasoning, neither Israel nor the international community should have any dealings with the PA since it supports the Hamas regime, sends funds to Hamastan and pretends to represent the Gaza gang’s fiefdom.

    Personally, I believe that Israel should not deal with any regime that embarces shari’a, because in doing so it is dealing with a group that fails to abive by the Noahide rules. While there is a great body of law in mohammedan realms they mean nothing; they can be by-passed where it is expedient, anyone deemed learned in Koran can issue a fatwa or declare a jihad and there is no system of appeal as Salman Rushdie found. Of particular note is the Koranic prohibition on the killing of children; Sheikh Yassin ruled that Israeli children can be killed because they grow up to serve in the IDF and that ruling was confirmed by the foremost Sunni university al-Azhar. The OIC states + the PA/Hamas gang should be shunned until they reject Koranic savagery and join the 21st century.

    Mr. Singer: While I agree with your comments, you don’t go far enough. It’s not just the Palestinians. You will find that throughout the Islamic world (not just Arabs) Jews, Judaism and Israel are called the most disgustingly racist names. They have a nerve to complain to anyone about anything. You need only look at Muslim behavour to see that they are, to quote Pamela Geller, Savages. It is not possible to negotiate with these people. Jew hatred is an article of faith with them!
