Why is everybody always pickin' on We?

It's an Old, Old, Old, Old War

Continuing on the Saddam & the Third Reich thread, check out the archives of Tovia Singer's show on Israel National Radio, specifically, air date Tuesday, April 4, 2006. Tovia interviews Chuck Morse, author of the new book The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini. From Amazon:

As the leader of Arab Palestine during the British Mandate period, al-Husseini introduced violence against moderate Arabs as well as against Jews. Al-Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine in 1937 and subsequently went on the Nazi payroll as a Nazi agent.

Al-Husseini played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role in instigating a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in 1941, in urging Nazi’s and pro-Nazi governments in Europe to transport Jews to death camps, in training pro-Nazi Bosnian brigades, and in funneling Nazi loot into post-war Arab countries.

Incidentally, Morse is currently running as a Republican for U.S. Congress in the 4th Congressional District of Massachusetts in a seat presently held by Democratic Representative Barney Frank. Go, Morse, go!

Bush screwed Israel [Israpundit]

Yeah, that in and of itself isn't news. But here's an interesting item from the article:

Bush then referred to it during his weekly address. “The Al-Qaeda letter points to Vietnam as a model,” the president declared. “Al-Qaeda believes that America can be made to run again. They are gravely mistaken. America will not run and we will not forget our responsibilities.”

From the Israpundit Archives:

Ever since that meeting in Hanoi in 1970, in which the Vietnamese Communists recounted their success in influencing the U.S. and Western media and undercutting the American will to fight, Yasser Arafat's strategy has been shaped by the Vietnam model.

So, Bush compromises Israel as a source to point out something the U.S. government has known for over 30 years. Nice.

Hamas: Israeli move "a declaration of war" [Reuters]

Yeah, because declaring that you're determined to destroy an entire nation in your national charter is really a Chamberlain-esque call for peace in our times. Admit it, HAMAS, you're just angry because these political moves force you to confess that you're completely and utterly dependent on Israel for everything; so much for being a self-sustaining, independent governing body. What was your party's campaign slogan, by the way: A belt on every child, and a bullet in every gun?

An Interesting Sidenote: The Impact of the Intelligensia in the Language Wars

Academia has a far greater impact on our media and government than the average citizen realizes. Want proof? Check out the comments following this post on Israpundit: The Orwellian Origin and Development of the Term “Anti-Semitism”. To keep it simple, the basic argument is that the term "anti-Semitism" is being reappropriated by the intelligensia to mean hatred of ANY RELIGIOUS GROUP, not just the Jewish people. The discussion that follows in the comments section is reminiscent of a college semantics class gone wild. While it is not for the faint of mind, it does shed a great deal of light onto the impact seemingly complex dialogues have on our seemingly simple everyday lives.

In the ancient days, we will return with no delay
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way
We've been traveling from state to state
And them don't understand what they say
3,000 years with no place to be
And they want me to give up my milk and honey
Don't you see, it's not about the land or the sea
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty

--Matisyahu Jerusalem
from the album YOUTH

Chag Sameach & Shalom

L'Shanah HaBa'ah B'Yerushalayim!
