Not surprised at deceit.

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Dirty Tricks against Me

Submitted by Rachel Garber, Philadelphia (United States), Sep 7, 2007 at 18:06

Nothing surprises me about anything having to do with Jews, with Israel, or with Israel supporters anymore. As was seen on a website recently regarding the fact that Israel had to close its borders to Darfurians. Much screaming and carrying on was made on the blog, as people conveniently forget to ask why Israel is the only country willing to take in the Darfur refugees.

There are several countries surrounding Sudan, and yet the people from Darfur chose to go to Israel. Why, because the surrounding countries are Muslim, and it is Muslims who are terrorizing their Christian countrymen. And as we all know, for years that person who headed the UN, Kofi Anan, refused to do anything about the abuses in Darfur.

Then going back to the security fence, I've seen pictures of the fence; most of the fence is just your ordinary cyclone fence that one sees, oh I don't know, around some peoples' property right here in Philly, yet what did the media choose to show, the short area where there is a concrete wall, giving the impression that the whole fence is concrete.

Then I recall a few months ago Arabs from Gaza jumping over the fence dividing Gaza from Egypt, and the big to do the Egyptian governement was making over the people illegally entering their country. Of course, no one in the media criticized the Egyptians for "cracking down" on the people from Gaza.

Unfortuantely, the Arab/Muslim world has waged a propaganda war to portray themselves as victims of Israel, the US, the West, you name it. And people lap it up. There are twenty-two Muslim nations in the world, and nobody raises an eyebrow about that, but everyone gets in a snit about Israel being a Jewish state.

I for one no longer care what people think, I'm sick of apologizing, trying to make nice. Look what's happening in England and France and all the other countries who tried to "accomodate"; France contrary to their fantasy of most people being Partisans during WWII I can almost understand, they are good at deceiving themselves.

But England, the country of Neville Chamberlain, I would have thought they would remember their history. Except they don't. I read just recently, that the schools were forced to capitulate when they tried to eliminate the study of WWII, and the importance of Winston Churchill to that era. As has been said, "those who forget history, are doomed to repeat it."
