The Annihilation of the Terrorists that No One Protested
invaded. They at long last suppressed the terrorists, who had conducted a
long campaign of suicide bombing and planting bombs, and put an end to any
notion that the terrorists and their sponsors would be granted their own
state. Many civilians were killed and wounded, yet not a single protest
was made against the invasion anywhere.
I am of course referring to the conquest by the army of Sri Lanka over the
past few days of the last hold-out city of the Tamil independence rebels.
Kilinochchi was the last town held by the Tamil "Tiger" Rebels, considered
to be a terrorist group by the United States. With it fell the last Tamil
hope of setting up an independent state or even of getting autonomy inside
Sri Lanka. The Tamils have their own state inside India but were not
satisfied with that manifestation of "self-determination." Kilinochchi,
579 kilometers north of Sri Lanka's capital Colombo, was until recent
months the center of political power for the rebels. Over the years,
65,000 people have been killed in the war with the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
Meanwhile not a single Solidarity-with-the-Tamil-Tigers protest has been
organized on a single Western campus or in a single downtown square.
Jewish leftist kapos have not taken to the streets to demand and end to
the war of aggression against the Tamils. Leftist web sites have not
proclaimed every injury of a Tamil civilian to be a Nazi-like war crime
and an act of genocide. Eurocrats have not pontificated about how the Sri
Lankan response to the terror was out of proportion. The International
Solidarity Movement has not sent in protesters from the West to try to
defend the terrorists. Communists and fellow travelers have not organized
flotillas of boats carrying aid to the terrorists. Israeli politicians
have not lectured the Sinhalese of Sri Lanka about how the whole problem
is that they are insensitive to the needs of the "Other." Ehud Barak did
not demand that the Sri Lanka government enter talks with the Tigers and
provide them with guns and funding. Israeli professors did not organize
petitions of solidarity with the Tamil suicide bombers. Haaretz
columnists have not turned out column after column explaining that the
suicide bombings by the Tamils are all because they are under an inhumane
siege and hungry. Writers David Grossman, Amos Oz and A.B. Yehoshua have
not produced poems and essays demanding that the demands of the Tamil
Tigers be met. Not a single Sri Lankan professor who had a family member
killed by the Tamil terrorists has come out in endorsement of the demands
of the terrorists. No movement of self-hating Sinhalese favoring a
Holocaust of Sinhalese has emerged. Not a single Sinhalese public figure
has proposed that Sri Lanka be dismembered and stripped of its Sinhalese
symbols. None have proposed a change in the national anthem. None have
proposed dividing Colombo and handing over half to the Tamils. Virtually
no one knows that 65,000 civilians have died in the fighting and the media
have no interest in covering the story.
But then again, Sri Lanka is just not as advanced a country as is Israel..
2. The queen of bovinity, the Hollywood airhead Roseanne Barr,
diversifies into treason, declares Israel to be a "Nazi" state:
She seems frustrated that she was born too late to serve a concentration
camp kapo. Her blog is at http://www.roseanneworld.com/blog/
Following fast in her hoofprints is Ed Asner, the "star" of the highly
forgettable B-dram "Lou Grant," a long-time Jewish assimilationist
Not every Jewish leftist is rallying for the Hamas. I am as disgusted at
"Rabbi" Eric Yoffie, a member of the Reform synagogue's leftist SWAT team,
as you are. In recent years the Reform movement under Yoffie has been FAR
more interested in promoting homosexual "marriage" than it has been in
Israel's survival. But in the Forward this past Friday he writes an
article that is about 87% sensible. It is worth reading:
http://www.forward.com/articles/14847/ There he denounces Jewish
self-hating pro-Hamas traitors like "J Street.". Just goes to show you
that even the worst Jewish sinners can repent and return in "Tshuva"
3. From Tom Gross: Even in Fort Lauderdale, Florida...
"The Jews need a big oven" and "nuke, nuke Israel" scream pro-Hamas

Bovine Barr no doubt agrees.
4. The proof is in the bombing:
5. Can you spot the Palestinian lie?

do not pray on Saturday. Can you guess who does?
6. Zeev Tzahor is the President of Sapir College, supposedly a
historian of Israeli history. Sapir College is located in Sderot and his
been hit repeatedly by Hamas shells. At least one Sapir student has been
). Zeev Tzahor is also an academic for capitulation and appeasement. He
was on the TV this evening urging Israel to desist from attacking Gaza and
to enter negotiations with the Hamas. Just what does he think Israel can
obtain from such negotiations? At most, a meaningless, empty piece of
paper that the Hamas will violate before the ink is dry. Not to worry,
Tzahor is convinced. If that happens Israel can call a policeman to
complain or file a protest!
Sapir College has been in the news in recent years in part because of its
employing an Arab faculty member who refused to allow an Israeli reserve
soldier in uniform and a woman wearing a Jewish star into his class.
Tzahor back then came out against the Arab, but we suspect it was to
gather some credibility so that he can promote his Peace Now agenda.
7. Anti-Zionist Tel Aviv University professor Professor Moshe
Zuckerman (history) tells German radio that Israel has murdered 400,000
Palestinians during the Gaza conflict. See
Vienna-based veteran journalist and media critic Karl Pfeifer slammed
Deutschlandradio for its interview with Israeli historian and sociologist
Moshe Zuckermann on Friday. Zuckermann told a widely-heard radio program
that Israel had killed 400,000 Palestinians during the Gaza conflict.
At the time of interview, the reported number of deaths was about 400.
Speaking to the Post, Pfeifer criticized the radio interviewer, Birgit
Kolkmann, for failing to "interrupt" Zuckermann.
"Any serious journalist would have asked the question" regarding the
accuracy of the number of deaths, he said.
Pfeifer said Deutschlandradio only corrected its on-line transcript eight
hours after the broadcast and he demanded that Kolkmann be sacked.
Thomas Wische, an editor with Deutschlandradio, told the Post that
Zuckermann's comment was a "bad mistake." He said he spoke to Zuckermann
following the revelation and that Zuckermann had been embarrassed by it.
Wische added that Kolkmann "did not notice" the error, and there is no
"bad intention or ideology" behind the broadcast of 400,000 deaths.
But the broadcast can be heard on-line, and Wische said Deutschlandradio
would not be modifying the live broadcast.
Zuckermann writes for the aggressively anti-Zionist left-wing paper junge
Welt. Journalist Ivo Bozic, who writes for German weekly Jungle World, has
written that junge Welt has become the "central German newspaper of Hamas"
during the conflict.
When asked about Zuckermann and junge Welt, Wische said the
Deutschlandradio sought to "document a piece of the opinion spectrum" with
its Zuckermann interview.
