Nazi Arabs in Berkeley

True to their form, the Nazis reveal their colors in Berkeley.

The Arabs do NOT want to acknowledge any kind of Jewish state.

Hitler propagandized that the Jews control the media, so do the Arabs.

Terrorism MUST be combatted!

Israel votes more often with the United States than any other nation in the UN.

Funds for terrorist lovers but not for Republicans

Since, the Palestinian Student Association has the full sponsorship of ASCSU, bringing in to CSU anti-Bush, anti-war, anti-Semitic, anti-Republican speakers, the CSU College Republicans would like to access student fees to bring in David Horowitz to campus. Because, we recognize that there is another point of view and it should be heard. According to the Supreme Court, funding for political organizations should be value neutral and fairly dispersed to all points of view. Hence, the CSU College Republicans promise to directly oppose the political speakers of the Palestinian Student Association. The CSU College Republicans maintain the right to fight school sponsored anti-Semitism, bigotry, anti-Americanism, anti-Bush, anti-Republicanism with funds from ASCSU, by receiving funds to bring world famous David Horowitz to CSU.

Speech November '03-US/Israel: A Common Destiny

Some people have requested that I put my speech up on the web for perusal since that frigid day in Colorado kept some people from attending. So here it is in its entirety....

"Thank you for coming to celebrate our close friendship with Israel today. Several hundred years ago, a few brave men and women set out to escape religious persecution and political oppression. Their oppressors were institutionalized churches and monarchs. The inquisition, beheadings, torture, excessive taxes and other tyranny were commonplace. The unrighteous monarchs and church officials wielded their power with God’s name and smited anyone who disagreed with them.

But a few brave souls had the courage to settle in a new land of opportunity. They braved the vast Atlantic Ocean to land in the New World to live in freedom from such tyranny. Today we live in a nation free from tyranny of institutionalized religion, we can grieve our government without being punished, we may express ourselves politically; we can organize peacefully and demonstrate. It is truly amazing that a few righteous individuals were able to create a nation such as ours and truly we can say that we are blest.

There is another nation of people who are seeking to escape religious persecution. In fact, these people have been struggling to have freedom for thousands of years. Atrocities came upon them by other religious persuasions for one simple reason, and none other: they were Jewish. The 20th century brought about the single-most terrible act of genocide in human history with the death of millions of Jews, the Holocaust.

Since the late 19th century the Jewish freedom lovers have been actively seeking to return to their homeland and official recognition has been given to them by the League of Nations before WW II and after it with the United Nations. Jewish refuges from all over the world found a home in it.

After thousands of years of persecution and ethnic genocide, the Jewish Zionists could have established any number of tyrannical forms of government. After all, what had the world taught the Jewish people? Death, oppression, genocide, dictatorships, monarchies, and religious institutionalism I would suggest to you.

But what did the Jews establish for themselves? Taking the model of English Parliament with American liberal democracy, Israel carved her niche in the world as a free democracy. It gave specific rights to all its citizens, regardless of race, color, gender or religion.

Today, we celebrate a common destiny with Israel. We share a common vision for the future of the human race. We hold up our lights of freedom bravely and solidly. We envision a world ruled by its people and living peacefully amongst each other. We hope to celebrate and appreciate diversity and multiple cultures while remaining focused in our path of being the leaders of the world. We cherish the torch of freedom and we look into the eyes of destiny without hesitation and say, “We are a free people and we offer hope for the whole world.”

Unfortunately, there are those who hate America and hate Israel. There are people who hate the children of Israel and despise our common vision of freedom. After all, our vision of the world is threatening to the dictator. The American and Israeli vision is against those who advocate genocide and religious persecution. Yes, the tyrants and mafia-style governments of the world quiver at the thought of freedom. Moreover, they will say anything and do anything to oppose it.

This isn’t a partisan issue either. The opponents of freedom don’t care if you are a liberal Democrat or a conservative Republican. They aren’t interested in the difference between “Green” thought or capitalistic Libertarianism. They aren’t even concerned with the difference between women and children and soldiers. All freedom lovers and those who live in freedom are the enemy of tyrants.

Sharing a common destiny means we are mutually attacked with hate, lies, and terrorism.

I have recently heard by those who are against the Jews having sovereignty, that Israel is somehow illegitimate because it “doesn’t have a constitution.” However this is not true. Any political science major on campus should be able to recite that there are parliaments in the world that have constitutions which are not written down. A classic example is the United Kingdom. The UK doesn’t have a written constitution, is it some how illegitimate?

I have heard tales of Zionist, Jewish world conspiracies including world banks, the illuminati, and the Masons. I have heard of the so-called Protocols of the Elders of Zion which states that the Gentiles or Goyim are to be ruled over by the Jew. I have heard fantastic tales of the Jews using the Holocaust to justify what is called ethnic genocide. I have heard stories of the Jewish people being Nazis and fascists. This vast Zionist conspiracy is supposed to include the media and Hollywood and the major nations of the Western World.

I would find it fanciful fiction of a crazed minority if weren’t for the fact that these are exactly the same statements made by the anti-Semites of the 1930’s in Europe. That makes this infinitely more serious. Worse yet, they are statements of the leaders of nations like Indonesia, the former Iraqi government and Iran. And these malicious genocide invoking tales are in the text books of the youth in the Arab world.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were proven to be a fake, who knows what the illuminati are, if they even exist, and by far the majority of Masons are Christians, not Jews. The liberal media is most certainly not a friend of the State of Israel and Hollywood does not support Judeo-Christian values.

In reality, this is nothing more than the same hatred of the Jews that occurred in the last century. We would think that in the 21st century this sort of hatred would be dead. But it is not and it lives on. Consequently, Jewish people flee from all over the globe to Israel to escape this hatred, not unlike the people who come from all over the world to America to escape tyranny and oppression and hatred.

Some people claim that they are not anti-Semitic, only against the State of Israel, but is there a difference? Is not denying the Jews a homeland of which they have lived for thousands of years not anti-Semitic?

I have also heard that Israel is not the ally and friend of the United States. I have heard that we send Israel billions of dollars and receive nothing in return. So I did some research on this and I discovered that this is just not true.

I would like to share with you some examples of what I found:

· Recently, it was Israeli technology that developed the first passive vaccine against the West Nile virus.

· Diabetes patients no longer have to administer painful injections of insulin due to Israeli medical technology.

· The US Food and Drug Administration has approved a new drug to fight cancer, which is the result of 30 years of research by Israeli scientists, Velcade.

· Israeli researchers have found that an antibiotic used for years against common infections may have the remarkable ability to correct a genetic flaw in cystic fibrosis. This may lead to a revolutionary way of treating other intractable genetic diseases.

· The US Supreme Court Justice, Stephen Breyer recently stated that Israel can teach us how to balance human rights and fight against terror.

· Israeli scientists have harnessed the power of DNA to create a self-assembling nanoscale transistor. Now we have the technology to use DNA proteins and molecular biology to construct electronic devices.
· Israel has designed military technology that allows our pilots to lock onto a target simply by looking at it. This and other technologies are protecting American soldiers in Iraq right now.

Those are just a few examples of Israel’s contributions to the world.

But is Israel our friend and ally? The answer is yes.
No other country votes more consistently with America in the UN; Israel fights the War on Terror with us and Israel stands by us in the good times and in the bad.

So Israel contributes to technology and is a staunch ally of the US, but do we really have a common destiny?

Again, the answer is YES!

We truly have a common destiny with Israel.

· Just like America, in Israel you can choose your religion, and be free from institutionalized religion.

· You can express yourself freely in your speech and in your writing.

· You have guaranteed individual rights including those of the right to live, to be free from oppressive regimes and oppressive religion, the right to practice your religion in your own way, the right to peacefully assemble, to protest, the right to listen to whatever music you choose and dance to it or not dance to it, the right to watch whatever movie you choose, read whatever literature you desire and say whatever feel about it.

In fact, Israel is the only country in the Middle-East that protects these important and inalienable human rights to which every man, woman and child on Earth possesses.

To quote someone who was much more informed than I am: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done. How desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy."

Again, I thank each of you for coming out today and supporting our two great nations, the last best hope for the whole world.

God Bless America, God Bless Israel, and may there be peace on Earth."

A Divorce from Pessimism: Neoconservatism

Politics of fear seeks to increase trade barriers and isolate the US from other nations. Fear is not exclusive to one political perspective. Both Pat Buchanan and Howard Dean espouse the values of protectionism. It is an anathema that a conservative would support this. It is abhorrent that Dean promulgates fear. Both Clinton and Reagan expanded free trade despite the outcry of the paleo-thinking opposition.

Opposition from unions claimed that free trade would outsource jobs destroying the American worker. Reagan’s trade with Japan scared hyper-sovereignty conservatives who thought the US would lose out, go into decline and all but become a colony of Japan. Rather, the US saw economic boom in the 80’s and 90’s and a decline in animosity between the free trade nations. This is a sharp contrast to paleo-thought of doomsday.

It is no surprise then that both Buchanan and Dean opposed the liberation of 25 million Iraqis. Perplexing as it may seem a conservative running and skipping along side an avowed left-winger, there is common interest between them in pessimism. Fear, hate and ignorance are joined at the hip with pessimism. Courage, love and information are linked inevitably with optimism.

Fear is never a good motivation and Ronald Reagan knew this better than most for “America doesn’t belong to the faint hearted. It belongs to the brave.”

When a nation produces the products that it has a comparative advantage at making, trades openly with a different one that does the same, both of them make absolute gains. Free and open trade is the only policy that allows goods, services and ideas to permeate boundaries with the most benefit to consumers. Since both nations are able to make their respective products efficiently, trading them means more products for both countries than both could produce in isolation.

Of course one must assume that these mutual gains are good for everyone. Since courage and love should drive our inner-most desires as a nation, the US should open up markets for trade not punish them. It would be quite the opposite of both love and courage to fall back into isolation.

Fear and hatred drive the desires of the opposition to our liberation of Iraq. Saddam Hussein gassed his own people, imprisoned or killed his political opposition and defied world mandates to comply with the evidence of the destruction of his WMD. The coalition found mass graves of hundreds of thousands of people.

How could anyone oppose the most humane thing to do with the toppling of a known state sponsor of terror? Fear and hatred. Fear of the unknown with pessimism and hatred of America “imposing” her will onto others is a major reason for paleo-thinking. Sounds like a WTO protest of Marxists, right? But there are conservatives who fear and hate for the same reasons and in equal measure to the leftists. Could it be that there is hatred for other races and religions among the extremes in the far left and far right as well? It is rather frightening that the far left and far right are both anti-Semitic, for example.

We must turn our backs to paleo-thinking.

America is the leader of the Free World. The US cannot abandon its responsibilities. The politics of fear must end. With George W Bush, America has claimed her rightful place in the new century. Isolation gave us Hitler. Intervention toppled Hussein. Isolation gave us the Great Depression. Free trade gave us the 80’s and 90’s. The results are clear. Now is the time to divorce ourselves from pessimism and those that promulgate it.

Hitler and the Mufti of Jerusalem

Here Hitler and Mufti Haj Amin Muhamed al Husseini are meeting. I got this picture from

Nazis in Bosnia

The Mufti of Jerusalem was a Nazi colaborator, an avowed anti-Semite and he was the former PLO leader, Yassir Arafat's uncle. Here he is giving the Nazi solute to his Islamic fundamentalist Nazi Waffen-SS soldiers. The original picture is from the cover of a Nazi magazine in 1944. He was the leader of the Albanian SS. Here he was leading those troops in Bosnia. I got it from Edwin Black's book Banking on Baghdad.

The Nature of Modern Terrorism

Ideologue. Black and white. Islamic fundamentalism. Dar al-Islam or Dal al-Harb, which are you? Are you a Muslim or a "kafir" (an infidel)? An infidel is anyone who is not a Muslim, being a part of the Dal al-Harb world. Killing infidels equals a host of virgins in heaven for the slaughterer. Thumping Nazi propaganda into Islamic fundamentalism with a fusion of extreme left-wing hatred of capitalism promulgates a message of hate, anti-Americanism but especially anti-Semitism.

Nazi propaganda from the 1930’s stated in part that the real problem of the world was Jewish capitalists. Hitler was able to woo leftist communists to his National Socialist Party with this chatter despite his extreme right-wing ideology. The Mufti of Jerusalem of the time personally promised to assist in Hitler's "Final Solution" to the Jewish Question in the Holy Land. This is well before the UN resolution to establish Israel as a state in 1948. Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini was a Waffen-SS leader who commanded Islamic Nazis in Albania. After the UN declared Israel a sovereign state, the mufti declared Jihad which largely created the Arab refugee problem in Israel. Of note, the Nazi collaborator Haj Amin al Husseini was Yassir Arafat's uncle.
Today Islamofascists continue to carry this message in their educational systems, and by socialization from their media.

"Kill the Jew, kill him there, kill him everywhere."

"Oh Muslim, the rocks and trees will call out, 'Here is a Jew hiding come and kill him.'"

Fascism has components (among others which also reinforce this argument) of hyper-patriotism combined with public marches, uniforms and totalitarianism. Uniforms do not have to be by Western standards. The head dress and clothing requirements of al-Aqsa Brigrade, al-Qaida, and Hamas all qualify as uniforms.

Left-wing hatred of capitalism finds its home easily with Islamofascism because it teaches that the proponents of the capitalist structure are Jews. This unholy fusion may be seen on our universities and Colorado State is not excluded.

We must wake up and get our heads out of the sand!

Israel, although it is a pluralistic, democratic and free society, that protects every person's right to religious freedom and voting rights, is being attacked by the leftists. Islamofascism teaches that America is run by Jews and the Zionists control our government. That makes sense to a leftist on campus because of her or his inherent Marxist desire to break the structure of the capitalist system.

That is absolutely NO different from what the furor taught. His obsession with anti-Semitism caused the single most destructive war in human history. The so-called "Final Solution" caused the persecution, torture, and extermination of millions of Jews.

At Colorado State University, under the guise of a "cultural awareness group," the Palestinian Student Association is demonstrably anti-Semitic. Anti-Semitism comes in two forms. One, it can be a desire to kill every Jew. Two, it can be a desire to destroy Israel and drive it into the sea. The later is exactly what Yassir Arafat, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and three time visitor to the Clinton Whitehouse, repeatedly stated, even after the Oslo Peace Accords.

"Resort" is the word of the day on campus. The Palestinian people have to "resort" to terrorism. Resort? Excuse me, when is it ever acceptable for anyone to sit down in a pizzeria next to a mother and her two young children to blow them up? American beheadings okay with you too? Resort is the worst excuse to ever possibly justify an act of horrific terror against innocent civilians. It is not courageous; it is pusillanimous and it is wrong.

Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Arafat, the leaders of Iran and others in the Middle-East are ideologues desiring the slaughter of Jews and the destruction of America. They do not care if you are an atheist, a Christian, a Buddhist, or a Hindu. Nor do they care if you are an ethnic minority or not. They are not interested in your sexual preference either. What they really want for you, if you fail to share their religious-based and fascist form of governance, is to die.

This unholy alliance between the left-wing and Islamofascism must be combated. I challenge anyone who has an appreciation for diversity, freedom of expression, freedom of religion and a pluralistic form of governance to take a stand against this truly deplorable villainy.

There is only one nation in the Middle-East that protects its citizens' rights and is fighting on our side in the War on Terror: Israel. Israel is not an apartheid state, nor does it terrorize anyone. It does protect its citizenry against Islamofascism however. If it is okay for the United States and the United Kingdom to fight it, why is it not okay for Israel to do it? Together, Israel and America share a common destiny: Individual freedom and representative democracratic governance.
