Like the witches’ brew in Macbeth the cauldron of noxious ingredients is being stirred on a daily basis by Abbas and members of his Hamas/Fatah Authority.

As the Obama Administration and other like minded admirers of a misconceived “moderate” peace partner continue to dwell in never never land, the aforementioned Authority stokes and stirs the toxic mix of hate and incitement in an ever increasing dose of poisonous fervor. Despite warnings from Israeli officials that this can only result in further mayhem and violence, those whose rose colored spectacles blind them to glaring realities, continue to cling to worn out discredited slogans which have long ago been proven false and indeed fatal to any prospect of a peace.

Instead of acknowledging past disasters and current blinkered blunders, the heirs of past appeasement policies continue to blame the absence of genuine peace not on those who are fomenting fantastic libels and slanders about Israel and Jews, but rather on the victims of this avalanche of scandalous invective.

If you think I am exaggerating please take the time to peruse the following recent examples of what, for the international community and others who define themselves as liberal and enlightened, passes for gestures of goodwill and expressions of tolerance.

The attempted murder of Rabbi Yehuda Glick is a classic case in point. Although a fervent advocate of the right for Jews to ascend and pray on the Temple Mount, he nevertheless at the same time respected the absolute right of Moslems to also pray in the Mosques situated there. He cultivated good relations with them and believed in freedom of worship for all Faiths at sites holy to them. This tolerant and peace loving man is a stark contrast to the mendacious media description of him following the attempted assassination by an Islamic Hamas supporter. Described as a hard line religious fanatic of the right wing variety you would never guess that he in fact was the opposite. All he wants is the right of Jews to pray at their most holy place. One would think that this was a cause which would resonate with all those who purport to stand for liberalism and freedom of worship. You are wrong however because those very individuals who scream and demonstrate every time Jews build a house or try to exercise their basic right to pray and live in their own land, suddenly fall into inexplicable silence when Islamic fanatics murder and maim.

Let’s get one thing straight. Not one Jew wants to pray in the Mosque. The Temple Mount as a place of Jewish worship existed long before Islam was ever dreamt of. The denial of Jewish prayer at that site is merely the continuation of a long and sordid attempt to exclude Jews from any place which proves their historical connection to Jerusalem. It is therefore sad and demeaning that some go along with this intolerant incitement, ostensibly in the interests of not inflaming Moslem mobs. One would think that precisely now is the time to challenge those who wish to deny any semblance of religious tolerance. Pandering to and appeasing the hypocritical Hashemite regime and those who follow in the footsteps of the Nazi Mufti Husseini will only postpone the inevitable.

If silence was the only reaction things would not be so bad. Instead, what we face is a daily outpouring of hypocritical hate orchestrated by the aptly named (by our Foreign Minister) Palestinian Terrorocracy. Their daily concoction of Judeophobia, unmatched since the time of the Third Reich, is not only ignored by the media and the international community, as well as our own hallucinatory appeasers, but is in fact endorsed. By refusing to condemn in the strongest possible manner this venomous vitriol they are in fact encouraging supporters of terror to murder and main more Jews.

Here for your perusal, courtesy of PMW, are some examples of how the “moderate” (an oxymoron if ever there was one) lovers of peace are stirring their toxic brew.


These few samples should be enough to convince any skeptic that there is no peace partner and that the sole aim of our neighbors is the elimination of any Jewish presence in any part of our country. The lauding of terrorists who murder 3 month old babies and indiscriminately crash their vehicles into commuters waiting at bus & rail stops should one imagine trigger an outpouring of condemnation and a serious introspective review of current myopic policies.

Instead we have indifference on a huge scale. It took the US Embassy a week to contact the family of Rabbi Glick but only 2 hours for the State Dept. spokesperson to condemn the building of houses for Jews in Jerusalem. The new EU foreign minister, taking over from the not to be missed Catherine Ashton, prior to even setting foot in Israel, issued a strong condemnation of our activities and maintained a noticeable reticence in censuring the Hamas/Fatah gang for their incitement and intolerance. A UN spokesperson deplored the increase in tension and trotted forth the usual meaningless formula for mutual restraint (as though murdering Jews was the moral equivalent of self defense). It is this pathological and pathetic refusal to confront Islamic terror against Israel & its citizens which encourages Abbas and his cohorts to further outrages. The failure to combat hate education of children and the abject refusal to demand a cessation of terrorist hero worship, is proof enough to our much touted partners that murder pays. Endless calls for calm do nothing to address the core problem.

Every day during which the cauldron of toxic hate is fermented and spread is another nail in the coffin of any genuine peace prospects. Churchill understood that absolute evil had to be totally defeated in order for freedom and democracy to be preserved. Chamberlain and his supporters (including the media) believed that evil could be contained via sweet talk and concessions.

One would have thought that the stark lessons of the recent past would have been learnt. Obviously this is not the case.

The following two quotes by anonymous sources succinctly sum up the current corrupt policies of the international community.

“First, they create the mess. Then they do everything possible to keep others from fixing the mess. Then they blame others for the mess they created. Then they propose the same policies that created the mess in the first place as the way to fix the mess they created.”

“Once you have made up your mind, facts are but a mere annoyance.”

Choose any current political leader you can think of (except the Canadian PM & FM), apply their names to the above quotes and you have in a nutshell the reason we face such double standards today.
