Helen Thomas, racist reporter, honored

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Imagine if an American reporter spouted, “Blacks should get the hell out of America and go back to Africa!” His/her career would be over instantly and the person would certainly not be glorified and mourned when dying. Well, our perverse, upside down, and politically correct society’s media has honored such a type of person.

It was horrible to watch, listen to, and read all the glowing epitaphs showered on former reporter Helen Thomas. She was painted as some kind of heroic reporter, willing to “stand up to presidents” (as she was usually accorded the honor of sitting in the front row of reporters at presidential news conferences).

She was nothing more than a disgusting ignorant racist bigot who should’ve been kicked out of the business of journalism years ago. This is Helen Thomas in her own words, advocating ethnic cleansing:

Helen Thomas Apologizes for Saying Jews Should ‘Get the Hell Out of Palestine’

… “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”

Thomas went on to say that the Palestinian people “are occupied and it’s their land” and that Israelis should “go home” — to Poland, Germany, America “and everywhere else.” …

She offered the apology only to try to save her sagging career (along with her sagging facial structure). Her original ugly statement was also a clear indictment of her own ignorance.

The word “Palestine” was invented by the angry Roman emperor Hadrian. He wanted to insult Jews by renaming their Jewish homeland called “Judea” into a perversion of the word “Philistine,” which refers to a Greek people. The Philistines were old enemies of the Jews. There is no “Palestine” nor is there a historical basis for calling a bunch of Arab immigrants into the Holy Land “Palestinians.”

Jews have at least 4000 years of proven continuous history and presence in Israel, while Arabs and their political ideology called “Islam” only showed up in the Holy Land in the 7th century A.D.

We do not celebrate anyone’s death. That type of behavior is for the likes of Helen Thomas. But we do not bury the truth nor do we whitewash racists.


Neologism and Nationalism

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

by Alexander H. Joffe*

There has never been agreement about Zionism. Not only is the idea of Jewish nationalism controversial, the very word “Zionism” arouses unique passions, as a recent controversy highlights. It was recently reported that the Jewish Federation of North America had dropped the word “Zionism” from a planning document. In a vehement denial, the Federation clarified that this was not so: It was merely a single individual on a subcommittee who proposed dropping the phrase “Zionist enterprise.” The proposal, the Federation emphasized, went nowhere.

So, the word Zionism, uniquely among terms related to nationalist movements, arouses attacks and defenses. But is “Zionism” even a useful or relevant term in the 21st century? And what does the answer to this question say about the state of the Jews and the Jewish state?

Does Tehmina ‘Get-the-f*cking-Jews-out-of-the-hotel’ Adaya support Israel?

Friday, August 24th, 2012

The CEO, president, and “part-owner” of the Shangri-La, a “chic hotel in Santa Monica,” one Tehmina Adaya, a Muslim, now claims to have, “condemned anti-Semitism and declared her support for Israel.” Hmmm… That’s strange. In July 2010, she belched out, “Get the [expletive] Jews out of the hotel.” The expletive was the word “fucking.” Back then, her vulgar, hateful words were aimed at a group of pro-Israel young people, many of them Jews, members of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) — surprise, surprise. Why now Adaya’s sudden admiration for Jews and Israel?

The pro-Israel group sued Adaya and on August 15, “convince[d] [a] jury that Adaya and the hotel had violated the Unruh Civil Rights Act, a far-reaching California state law that outlaws discrimination on the basis of ‘sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, marital status, or sexual orientation.’” The jury, “in California Superior Court ordered the hotel and Adaya to pay the plaintiffs a combined $1.65 million in damages, statutory payments and punitive damages.”

In my humble opinion, Adaya is no friend of Israel or of Jews. She’s just trying to save face, protect her hotel’s income, and possibly practicing taqiyya, “employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.”

NPR CEO stoops to calling Juan Williams names; NPR was gunning for Juan for a long time

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

By Andrew L. Jaffee

National Public Radio’s (NPR) firing of Juan Williams had less to do with his (benign) remarks about Muslims on airliners, but more about finding a pretext to dump him. Just yesterday, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller stooped to name-calling against Williams, stating, “that whatever feelings Williams has about Muslims should be between him and ‘his psychiatrist or his publicist — take your pick’.” This belies the deep resentment NPR held against Williams for his “controversial” views. Many at NPR probably considered Williams an “Uncle Tom,” just as the same left-wing epithets were tossed at great minds like Condi Rice and Colin Powell. Williams’ Muslim remarks were just a pretext for NPR to do what it’s wanted to do for a long time: Fire Williams and derive perverse pleasure from it. Here’s Williams being “controversial,” speaking the truth, caring for his own community with passion, and encouraging self-responsibility:

Minority Advocates, Constituents Differ on Immigration: Zogby Poll Finds Wide Support for Enforcement, Lower Numbers

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

WASHINGTON (February 25, 2010) — While it is sometimes assumed that minorities, particularly Hispanics, favor increased immigration and legalization for illegal immigrants, a new Zogby survey finds that minority voters’ views are more complex. The poll of Hispanic, Asian-American, and African-American likely voters finds some support for legalization. But overall each of these groups prefers enforcement and for illegal immigrants to return home. Moreover, significant majorities of all three groups think that the current level of immigration is too high. These views are in sharp contrast to the leaders of most ethnic advocacy organizations, who argue for increased immigration and legalization of illegal immigrants. The survey used neutral language, avoiding such terms as “amnesty,” “illegal alien,” or “undocumented.”

The findings:

Jihad Comes to the Bronx

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

By Fern Sidman

In an elaborate sting operation, four African American Muslim men were arrested Wednesday night in New York City for attempting to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and for conspiring to shoot down military planes at an Air National Guard base in Newburgh, NY. James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen were friends who had met while serving time in prison and it was there that they converted to Islam.

Unemployment for Immigrants and the US-Born: Picture Bleak for Less-Educated Black & Hispanic Americans

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

WASHINGTON (February 17, 2009) – The Center for Immigration Studies has prepared a detailed employment breakdown for immigrants and native-born Americans based on December 2008 data, the latest publicly available. (The Department of Labor generally does not separate out unemployment statistics for immigrants and the native-born.) Among US-born blacks and Hispanics without a high school degree, unemployment is 24.7 percent and 16.2 percent respectively — two to three times the national rate.

Legendary Songwriter Now Marches to an Islamist Tune

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

by David J. Rusin*

Music and real estate mogul Kenny Gamble, alternatively known as Luqman Abdul Haqq, is one of the most powerful men in Philadelphia — and also among the most controversial. His effort to revitalize dilapidated South Philly neighborhoods stands at the center of the storm. While he grandiosely links his projects to “the saving of America,” others have accused him of constructing a “black Muslim enclave.”
