‘…..Support Palestine Defeat Zionism…’
Posted on October 1st, 2012

Hameed Abdul Karim

Coming hard on the heels of the of the vilest of movies “ƒ”¹…”The Innocence of Muslims’ and the subsequent blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in the French magazine Charle Hebdo, there is this outrageous advertisement on New York busses carrying  a vicious racist message.   The ad reads “In Any War between the Civilised Man and the Savage, Support the Civilised Man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad’. This spiteful ad made its debut in San Francisco on city busses. And now it’s in New York. The timing seems perfect considering the UN is having yet another of its talking shops.

The nice men and women of New York would think this might insult the delegates at the UN sessions. And they would be right because that’s the precise intent of the people behind this uncivilised advertisement when you consider the timing. Most of the delegates are indeed “ƒ”¹…”savages’ or were referred to as such during the days when they were the “ƒ”¹…”White Man’s Burden’.

The ethnic “ƒ”¹…”Red Indians’ who were slaughtered in their millions by the “ƒ”¹…”civilised’ Europeans in the largest genocide known in history, would not take too kindly to this wicked advertisement either. The White man described them as “ƒ”¹…”savages’ too as they went about their “ƒ”¹…”God given responsibility to exterminate the “ƒ”¹…”savages’ from the land that Columbus “ƒ”¹…”discovered’ and purge it from all “ƒ”¹…”impurity’ for the ‘Pale Faces’. Neither will the “ƒ”¹…”Black’ man, for exactly the same reason. A similar genocide took place in Australia. And there is one taking place in Palestine as we speak.

The person behind this racist advertisement is the anti Muslim and Islamophobic Pamela Geller. She also happens to be a hard core Zionist Jew.  In an interview over RT TV she says there is no harm in mocking the Prophet Muhammad or Jesus Christ or the Buddha. “ƒ”¹…”This is America’ she points out “ƒ”¹…”where freedom of speech reigns supreme’. But up until today there is not a single case where we had seen the Prophet Moses or the Prophet Abraham being mocked at in any way at all. It’s not that we would want this to happen, but this gives you a clue of the identity of the people behind the slander of holy personages of faiths other than Judaism.

In all fairness let it be said that the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority rejected the heinous advertisement when it was brought before them for approval. So Pamela Geller went to court and the federal judge ruled in her favour saying that the ad is protected speech under the First Amendment. How would the good judge react if the advertisement read “ƒ”¹…”In Any War between the Civilised Man and the Savage, Support the Civilised Man. Support Palestine. Defeat Zionism’? Would he have resorted to the First Amendment and rule in favour of the ad? If he did he would be condemned as an anti-Semite if he’s a Goy (Gentile). If he were a Jew he would be denounced as a “ƒ”¹…”self hating Jew’ like so many Jews who stand up against Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians. The First Amendment does not protect anybody who speaks against Zionism, Israel’s version of Apartheid. So much for the First Amendment and “ƒ”¹…”free speech’ in the “ƒ”¹…”land of the free and the brave’!

Sure there is such a thing as “ƒ”¹…”hate speech’ but this was introduced to punish anybody who criticises Israel or Zionist Jews, not Islam or Muslims or any other faith or people.  For example no one is allowed to question the holocaust and indeed many have paid heavy prices for daring to do just that. Some have been thrown into jail in Canada and Europe simply for questioning the number of Jews that the Europeans, especially the Germans, killed.

Coming to the First Amendment itself, in his book “ƒ”¹…”A People’s History of the United States’ Howard Zinn says, “ƒ”¹…”The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights shows that quality of interest hiding behind innocence. Passed in 1791 by Congress, it provided that “Congress shall make law”¦abridging the freedom of speech or of the press”¦” Yet, seven years after the First Amendment became a part of the Constitution, Congress passed a law very clearly abridging the freedom of speech’. This was the Sedition Act. Under this act any “ƒ”¹…”false, scandalous and malicious statements against government, Congress or the President with intent to defame them, bring them into disrepute or excite popular hatred against them’ was banned.

“ƒ”¹…”This act seemed to directly violate the First Amendment. Yet it was enforced. Ten Americans were put in prison for utterances against the government and every member of the Supreme Court in 1798-1800 sitting as an appellate judge, held it constitutional’. Sounds very much like the Florida Supreme Court that “ƒ”¹…”selected’ George Bush jnr. as President of the United States of America! So what chance did we have of a federal court judge classifying Pamela Geller’s scurrilous advertisement as “ƒ”¹…”hate speech’?

If you wish to relegate Howard Zinn’s version of history to that of a bygone era, you might want to focus your thoughts on the recent “ƒ”¹…”Patriot Act’ and “ƒ”¹…”Homeland Security’. These acts have dwindled Americans’ civil rights as Americans themselves claim. All this new legislation, as some silly talking head might say on Fox TV, is to “ƒ”¹…”curtail democracy to protect democracy’. But hate mongers, fear mongers and rabble rousers like Pamela Geller will continue to flourish under the First Amendment. You can bet your devalued bottom dollar on that.

    I’m glad SL is NOT getting involved in this Israel-Palestine problem.

    SL follows Buddhist virtue of MIDDLE PATH. Very good.

    Good relations with BOTH Israel and Palestine.

    Let them fight each other if they can’t peacefully resolve it. It is THEIR problem. NOT ours.

    In Saudi Arabia there is no Church, Synagogue, Buddhist nor Hindu Temple is allowed.Is Wahhabism (pseudo Salafism) a religion of tolerance?
    It is not Iran that should be bombed…in Iran there are still Jews living there and praying in their Synagogues.
    Muammar al-Gaddafi respected Christian and Jewish religions and their in Libya but USA-UK-French-Saudi-Qatari financed terrorists destroyed Churches, Synagogues recently.
    Buddhist Temples have survived in Islamic countries for centuries, but they could not survive under the Wahhabism. Wahhabism provides the fundamental base for jihadism.
    Washington and London are protecting Wahhabi extremists. In Syria Christians and their Churches were safe before the Westerners began sending their Wahhabi Fanatics to kill innocent Syrian civilians.
    In Bosnia and Kosovo, under the guise of “reconstruction aid”, Saudi Arabia, Kuwaiti, and other Wahhabi organizations have demolished and removed major Islamic monuments (survived attacks by Serb and Croat militias) which were created by Muslims with an Islamic culture and tradition stretching back to 14th century long before Ibn Abd al-Wahhab made his 18th century alliance with the warlord who founded the Saudi dynasty.
    The Wahhabis, and the British, supported the warlord Ibn Saud and legitimized the Saudi dynasty and its struggle against the Turkey. When the House of Saud took control of the Holy Places in Arabia from the Turkey with British support they destroyed 15 centuries of Islamic heritage, including the desecration of the tombs of the wives and companions of the Holy Prophet, in the iconoclastic imposition of Wahhabism. The iconoclastic Wahhabi House of Saud turned the site of the apartments of the Prophet’s wives into a car park.
    The Wahhabi-backed House of Saud took full control of the Hijaz, Mecca and Medina, in 1924 and established the modern state of Saudi Arabia, with Wahhabism as its official religion. Since then the House of Saud has promoted Wahhabism as normative Islam throughout the Islamic world. The House of Saud was consolidated on massive oil wealth and have spent huge sums of money building Wahhabi mosques, publishing Wahhabi literature and funding Wahhabi organizations world-wide. Today, with Wahhabi control of the Holy Places intact, virtually every aspect and corner of modern Islam has been penetrated by Wahhabi influence through the agency of the House of Saud.
    Through the control of the Hajj – the beating heart of Islam – and through their vigorous publication and propaganda means, almost all the Muslims are infected with Wahhabism to some extent.
    Present Zionist and Wahhabi doctrines foresee the fall of Iran, Belarus, and, ultimately Russia and China, after the fall of Damascus, to the combined forces of NATO and the Saudi- and Qatari-backed Wahhabis, who make up a large portion of the anti Syrian movement.

    A Hebrew man named Abraham originated the ‘One God’ belief. He called his God Yahweh. Two thousand five hundred years after Abraham, Muhammad claimed, Abraham’s One God, who he called ‘Allah’ had appointed him as the last Prophet. Muhammad also said Allah made him read the Koran through angel Gabriel. The fact that Koran 80:13 reveals, ‘the Judeo-Christian scriptures were in good hands’ confirmed Muhammad’s acceptance of Hebrew Prophets and Christian Son of God and their scriptures.

    But we see, non of the Jewish or Christian scripture prophesied a Muhammad, Koran or an Islam. So, Jews and Christians do not accept Muhammad a Prophet or indeed, Allah is the same ‘One God’ of Abraham.

    It can be argued, Judeo-Christian faiths were fully independent and separate from Islam for they came in to existence long before Islam. But Jews argue; Muhammad and his deity created very little original material, and most of the Koran was lifted from the Torah and Talmud. They also say, team Islam was plagiarizing their scriptures. In Koran 4:163 mentioned many a Torah characters as Prophets. But Jew deny many of them were prophets or apostles. And these disagreements annoyed Muhammad and his latter day Muhammadans, I suppose.

    When Jews and Christians failed to accept Muhammad as a Messiah of Abraham’s God, he declared Hebrew Bible, the Old Covenant and Christian Bible, the Renewed Covenant has become corrupted. And Koran 2:40 and a dozen more verses demeaned Jews for charging Muhammad when he needed more scripture to call his own. In Koran 2:59 Allah lambasted the Jews: “The wicked [Jews] changed and perverted the word We [Allah] had spoken to a word distorted.” Because of their egregious behavior, the Jews “became like apes despised.”

    Besides, there were discrepancies between Bibles, and Koran and Hadith all the way. Tabari I:188, 189, 216, 219, 258 etc in Hadith and many verses in Koran like 15.26, 21.37 and etc explained initial creation in a different way to that in Genesis 1 & 11. Surely, if Allah and Yahweh is the same, they cannot say different things at different times; says Jews and Christians. And the rift between Muhammadans and the Judeo-Christians began for real.

    And Muhammad started accusing Jew and Christians as unbelievers. Verses such as Koran 2:193, 9:123, 47:4 and very many others that started to pour in abundance demanded Muslims to fight disbelief for Allah.

    So, who is the savage then? Well, I only wrote a very little about one side here, you’ll have to read cruelty of the other side, their scriptures and history to decide who the real savage is.

    So the conclusion is : we should KEEP OUT of this Israel Palestine thing. It is NOT our problem.

    Future will decide who survives.

    Our IGNORANCE of the TRUTH is our DEMISE.
    Keep away from Zionist or Wahabis conclusions.

    We should keep out of both Zionist and Wahhabi doctrines and use Buddhism which is Sri lankan.
    Use your wisdom and do not listen to some uneducated idiots migrated to Australia.

    Petro dollar Wahhabism has already penetrated every nook and corner of the Islamic world including Sri Lanka and India. Islamic scholars should unite and put an end to Petro dollar Wahhabism spreading further in the interest of protecting the innocent younger Muslim generation since Wahhabis concentrate much on brain washing the innocent younger Muslim generation. Sunnath Jamath Moulvis and followers should take a serious note of this dangerous trend. More than the illiteracy prevailing among Muslims, backwardness, unemployment etc, the major problem confronting the whole Islamic society is Petro dollar Wahhabism.
