Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: Did Benjamin Franklin say it in 1934?

Basicaly Muslims of Arab (and Arab-wannabe Pakistan) like the forgeries as excuses for their own stupidity.

Some of these forgeries include:

  • Franklin Forgery (which you described), which didn't exist in 1789
  • Damascus Blood-Libel (that Jews needed blood of Muslim boys for Pesach matzos), started by the al-Husseini (as in the Nazi-collaborating Mufti) family, which was run through Ottoman Turkish courts lots of times during Ottomans' 465-year rule of Holy Land (as well as Levant and Jordan); every Turkish (Muslim) court in front of which the libel was placed found to be a pathetic forgery. The closest outside analogous case would be 1968's "Agartala Conspiracy" case by Ayub Khan's government against Mujib (even the prosecutor of the case found it pathetic; in fact I asked a white student from South Africa on this, who stated that such a case against an African in South Africa during Vorster's time would have been dismissed about 5 minutes after opening arguments)
  • "Protocols of Elders of Zion", which is known to have been forged by Cheka (czarist precursor of KGB, but just as vicious); all copies produced since 1992 have been printed in Kuwait City and Multan
  • the idea that Bush staged 9/11(contradicted by some of their own other theories on it, which they cannot see)
  • the idea that Diana was murdered by the Royal Family to avoid embaressment over England's king having Muslim part-sibling (pathetic ideology, considering the shenanigans of the English royal dynasties from 1066 till today would actually make this about like a teardrop in the Atlantic)
  • That the 2004/12/26 tsunami was caused by a "joint India/US under-seabedrock nuke test off Sumatra coast" (not deterred by the fact that such a test is technologically impossible, and the other that India isn't exactly known for joint nuke tests with anyone)
