Every honest Jew who knows the history of his people cannot but feel a deep sense of gratitude to Islam, which has protected the Jews for fifty generations, while the Christian world persecuted the Jews and tried many times “by the sword” to get them to abandon their faith.

Benyamin Netanyahu and Daniel Pipes are two classical examples reflecting the brutal ugliness of Jewish Islamophobia.
The former has been moving stridently toward full-fledged Zionist fascism while the latter is unabashedly calling for an all-out crusade by the US and Europe against the Muslim world, of course on Israel’s behalf.
Let us start with Netanyahu, a racist, pathological liar by every shred of imagination. This week, Netanyahu had the temerity to claim that the Nazi-like Israeli occupation of Palestine was not the real root cause besetting the Middle East, and that the real source of trouble was “radical Islam.”
In characteristic Zionist ingratitude, Netanyahu utterly ignored the fact that it was Muslims in North Africa and the Middle East who protected Jews during the holocaust.
Similarly, he overlooked the fact that Jews reached their golden age under Muslim rule in southern Spain.
Netanyahu is not an ignoramus; he is rather an addicted willful liar and hatemonger, and his constant vilification of Islam is designed first and foremost to divert world attention from the genocidal ethnic cleansing Israeli has been carrying out against the Palestinian people.
His red-herring tactic may succeed in deceiving some people in the West, especially those readily exposed to Zionist-controlled media.
However, with the advent of the internet and other forms of independent media, the Israeli “magic” is losing its effect as more and more people in North America and Europe are discovering the truth about this criminal entity.
Netanyahu often portrays Israel as representing western civilization and ideals in an area dominated by Islam.
However, one doesn’t have to be a great expert in Israeli affairs to find out the enormity of this lie.
Israel, after all, is a country that is based on mass murder, mass theft and mass mendacity, characters that most Westerners wouldn’t find particularly appealing.
In fact, if Israel reminds the West of anything, it reminds it of a very ugly and sad chapter in European history, a chapter Europe would never want to see again.
I am alluding to Third Reich which destroyed Europe and caused the death of tens of millions of people, all under the rubric of the Master Race.
Just take a fleeting look at the general discourse in Israel today and you will see the striking similarity between the German treatment of European Jewry and Israeli treatment of the helpless Palestinians. Indeed, in the name of “the chosen people” and Jewish nationalism, Israel has brought havoc and turbulence to the peoples of the Middle East
It is true that Israel is technologically advanced in many fields and has a modern economy. But so what? Nazi Germany, too, was technologically advanced and had a vibrant economy. The former Soviet Union was also very powerful and technologically advanced.
As to Netanyahu himself, it is clear that the man embodies the zenith of racism and evil which puts him at the opposite side of western ideals, such as human rights, for example.
In 1989, this Netanyahu who is ranting and raving about fictitious threats facing “western civilization” told students at Bar Illan University that “Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China (The Tiananmen Square) where world attention was focused on that country to carry out mass ethnic cleansing of the Arabs of territories.”
A few years ago, the same Netanyahu declared in a speech before the Inter-disciplinary Center in Herzlya, north of Tel Aiv, that Israel would have to watch more closely the birth rate of Israel’s Arab citizens who he said constituted an even greater strategic threat to the Jewish identity of Israel than did the Palestinians of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.
So, how is Netanyahu going about to create a Jewish empire or “Yeretz Yisrael Hashlema” as is known in Hebrew?
Well, the answer is very clear. He would like to see Christians and Muslims at each other’s throats so that Israel could use the ensuing bloodshed to achieve more territorial aggrandizement while pretending to defend western interests.
Netanyahu, like the rest of Zionist leaders, is a warmonger. This explains why he is hell-bent on pushing the US to attack Iran just as Zionism’s men in Washington had succeeded in getting the Bush administration to invade, occupy and destroy Iraq and cause the death of a million people on Israel’s behalf.
Now, Daniel Pipes, the Joseph Gooebbels of our time and perpetual inciter against one fourth of humanity.
In a recent article titled “the Enemy has a Name,” Pipes urged the US to “vanquish” Islam-ism and prevent Muslim masses from achieving independence, democracy and self-determination.
“Vanquish Islamism and help Muslims develop an alternative form of Islam,” he wrote in his screed. You see how this Nazi-minded hoodlum is demanding that Muslims change their own religion so that it would suit his morbid whims.
Voicing his gung-ho approach toward Islam’s estimated 1.5 billion followers, the manifestly racist icon of the Bush era suggests that the west employ “conventional war, counterterrorism, counterpropaganda, and many other strategies” to suppress Islam’s opposition to Zionist hegemony in the Middle East.
What Pipes is saying effectively is that “either Muslims bring themselves to submit to Jewish tyranny and be slaves for the global Jewish- Zionist elites, or they must be annihilated.”
To expedite his sick goals, he suggests the incubation of “Muslim” quisling entities (presumably similar to the quisling governments which Nazi Germany created through occupied Europe) whose main job is to crush any opposition to American colonialism and interventionism.
Pipes recognizes though that the agents of western colonialism throughout the Muslim world are weak and unreliable because they are mostly “ fractured individuals, who have only just begun hard work of researching, communicating, organizing, funding and mobilizing.”
To overcome this obstacle, Pipes urges solid western backing and support for agents of western imperialism, presumably people like Fouad Seniora in Lebanon, Hamid Qarazi in Afghanistan, and Mahmoud Abbas in the occupied Palestinian territories, and of course, Riad al Maliki, in Iraq.
Now what is the difference between this hateful and criminal mindset and the Nazi mentality? In fact, it is the same mentality. The Germans did it in the name of the “master race” and Pipes and ilk are trying to do the same thing in the name of the “superiority of the Jewish race.”
Of course, Pipes may continue to day-dream until he dies.
Day-dreaming by definition indicates that the dreamer has reached an advanced degree of frustration and despair.
Eventually, fire will consume itself if it has nothing to consume.
