It is not being dramatic by pointing out the gun in the room.
This gun is plain as day if you open your eyes…I dont “pay” taxes or try to avoid taxes in any way – gun to my head demanding.
Taxes are not voluntary; they are stolen by force…You have two options – Pay or dont pay; dont pay…go to prison…dont pay and try to rightfully protect yourself from aggressors and you will be shot.
Is this what you call a rational society based on “Individual Rights”?
1) “We” stole nothing…were you involved in this invasion of land?…If you have such hatred towards this action against the natives – why support the founding document and the Country involved?
2) How would me not “paying” taxes be theft of military services?…I never signed any agreement to pay for these services and never agreed to the terms of these services; these services are imposed upon me…If I came and cut your grass without your approval – are you “stealing” from me by not paying?
I’m disappointed; I was hoping to see Mr Paul do a really good picture on the Etch A Sketch
Doesn’t make it any less true :p
wow, only in america..Ron Paul 2012 the Dr. will free you now

See ya in Tampa little Ziofascist. Like a flood.
This man is racist, homophobic, animal cruelty, piece of scum. Ron Paul needs to drop out.
Marc Lee Raphael
“Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave auctions were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the eighteenth century, Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.
“This was no less true on the North American mainland, where during the eighteenth century Jews participated in the ‘triangular trade’ that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which in turn was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750’s, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760’s, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760’s and early 1770’s dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent.”

“In Charleston, Richmond and Savannah the large majority (over three-fourths) of the Jewish households contained one or more slaves; in Baltimore, only one out of three households were slaveholding; in New York, one out of eighteen….Among the slaveholding households the median number of slaves owned ranged from five in Savannah to one in New York.”

Jacob Rader Marcus
“All through the eighteenth century, into the early nineteenth, Jews in the North were to own black servants; in the South, the few plantations owned by Jews were tilled with slave labor. In 1820, over 75 percent of all Jewish families in Charleston, Richmond, and Savannah owned slaves, employed as domestic servants; almost 40 percent of all Jewish householders in the United States owned one slave or more. There were no protests against slavery as such by Jews in the South, where they were always outnumbered at least 100 to 1….But very few Jews anywhere in the United States protested against chattel slavery on moral grounds.”

The American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society Report of 1853
“The Jews of the United States have never taken any steps whatever with regard to the slavery question. As citizens, they deem it their policy to have every one choose which ever side he may deem best to promote his own interests and the welfare of his country. They have no organization of an ecclesiastical body to represent their general views; no General Assembly, or its equivalent. The American Jews have two newspapers, but they do not interfere in any discussion which is not material to their religion. It cannot be said that the Jews have formed any denominational opinion on the subject of American slavery….The objects of so much mean prejudice and unrighteous oppression as the Jews have been for ages, surely they, it would seem, more than any other denomination, ought to be the enemies of caste, and friends of universal freedom.”
Rabbi Bertram W. Korn
“It would seem to be realistic to conclude that any Jew who could afford to own slaves and had need for their services would do so….Jews participated in every aspect and process of the exploitation of the defenseless blacks.”

Louis Epstein, author of Sex Laws and Customs in Judaism:
“The female slave was a sex tool beneath the level of moral considerations. She was an economic good, useful, in addition to her menial labor, for breeding more slaves. To attain that purpose, the master mated her promiscuously according to his breeding plans. The master himself and his sons and other members of his household took turns with her for the increase of the family wealth, as well as for satisfaction of their extra-marital sex desires. Guests and neighbors too were invited to that luxury.”
Seymour B. Liebman
“They came with ships carrying African blacks to be sold as slaves. The traffic in slaves was a royal monopoly, and the Jews were often appointed as agents for the Crown in their sale….[They] were the largest ship chandlers in the entire Caribbean region, where the shipping business was mainly a Jewish enterprise….The ships were not only owned by Jews, but were manned by Jewish crews and sailed under the command of Jewish captains.”

“The West India Company, which monopolized imports of slaves from Africa, sold slaves at public auctions against cash payment. It happened that cash was mostly in the hands of Jews. The buyers who appeared at the auctions were almost always Jews, and because of this lack of competitors they could buy slaves at low prices. On the other hand, there also was no competition in the selling of the slaves to the plantation owners and other buyers, and most of them purchased on credit payable at the next harvest in sugar. Profits up to 300 percent of the purchase value were often realized with high interest rates….If it happened that the date of such an auction fell on a Jewish holiday the auction had to be postponed. This occurred on Friday, October 21, 1644.”

“[I]t remains a fact which cannot be gain said that in his own native home, and generally throughout the world, the unfortunate negro is indeed the meanest of slaves. Much had been said respecting the inferiority of his intellectual powers, and that no man of his race has ever inscribed his name on the Parthenon of human excellence, either mental or moral.”

“The Jew is the heir of the slave-baron in Dougherty [Georgia]; and as we ride westward, by wide stretching cornfields and stubby orchards of peach and pear, we see on all sides within the circle of dark forest a Land of Canaan.

HERE IS SOME MORE INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT JEWS.
The Encyclopedia of the Jewish Religion refers to Moses Maimonides as “the symbol of the pure and orthodox faith.” His Guide to the Perplexed is considered the greatest work of Jewish religious philosophy, but his view of Blacks was Hitlerian:
“[T]he Negroes found in the remote South, and those who resemble them from among them that are with us in these climes. The status of those is like that of irrational animals. To my mind they do not have the rank of men, but have among the beings a rank lower than the rank of man but higher than the rank of apes. For they have the external shape and lineaments of a man and a faculty of discernment that is superior to that of the apes.”
Major Mordecai Manuel Noah (1785-1851)
He was considered the most distinguished Jewish layman in his time. He was such a prolific proponent of slavery, that the first Black American periodical, The Freedom’s Journal, was launched in response to Noah’s racist propaganda. He actually defended slavery by calling it liberty:
“There is liberty under the name of slavery. A field negro has his cottage, his wife, and children, his easy task, his little patch of corn and potatoes, his garden and fruit, which are his revenue and property. The house servant has handsome clothing, his luxurious meals, his admitted privacy, a kind master, and an indulgent and frequently fond mistress.”
He argued that “the bonds of society must be kept as they now are” and that “To emancipate the slaves would be to jeopardize the safety of the whole country.” The Freedom’s Journal called Noah the Black man’s “bitterest enemy” and William Lloyd Garrison, the leading White abolitionist, called him the “lineal descendant of the monsters who nailed Jesus to the cross.”
About Civil Rights
A Rabbi, 1956
“What our friends in the North do not fully appreciate is the fact that there is no difference between most of the Jews and their Christian neighbors in their attitudes toward the Negro. This is not a by-product of antisemitism, but an honest conviction. For these Jews desegregation presents not merely a school problem, but also a problem of the mixing of races.”
Lester D. Friedman
Author of Hollywood’s Image of the Jew
“Today, most people associate the blackface tradition with minstrel shows, and more particularly with Al Jolson. In actuality, many Jewish performers gained early and continued success using it. Sophie Tucker was billed as the ‘World Renowned Coon Shouter’ or more euphemistically as the ‘Manipulator of Coon Melodies.’ Eddie Cantor played Salome in drag and blackface, while George Burns often toured with an even more comically stylized blackface than Jolson’s. Later George Jessel often joined Eddie Cantor on stage in various blackface routines…Indeed, it is too easy to ignore the derogatory aspects of such activities, the unconscious racism accepted and nourished by such cruel parodies, by citing historical contexts. The undisguised elements of ridicule in such blackface portrayals by Jews mimicking the outlandish stereotypes of blacks now looks suspiciously like one group’s desperate need to assert its own superiority by mimicking another. Such a motivation while perhaps unconscious is nonetheless hard to ignore.”

“Keep bashing the dead white males,and the live ones,and the females too,until the social construct known as the White race is destroyed. Not deconstructed,but destroyed”
Noel Ignatiev has said on record that the GENOCIDE of the White race is a service to humanity. He is a Jewish Harvard Professor.

“We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By pounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them into the program of the Communist Party. In America, we aim for several victories. While inflaming the Negro minorities against the whites, we will instill in the whites a guilt complex for their supposed exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Blacks to rise to prominence in every walk of life and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige,, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and will begin the process which will deliver America to our cause.” (Jewish Playwright Israel Cohen, A Radical Program For The Twentieth Century. Also entered into the Congressional Record on June 7, 1957, by Rep. Thomas Abernathy).
“There is scarcely an event in modern history that cannot be traced to the Jews.

“The difference between a Jewish soul and the souls of non-Jews – all of them in all different levels – is greater and deeper than the difference between a human soul and the souls of cattle.” – Rabbi Kook, the Elder
Note: Rabbi Kook’s entire teaching was based upon the Lurianic Kabbalah, the school of Jewish mysticism that dominated Judaism from the late sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. One of the basic tenets of the Lurianic Kabbalah is the absolute superiority of the Jewish soul and body over the non-Jewish soul and body. According to the Lurianic Kabbalah, the world was created solely for the sake of Jews, and the existence of non-Jews was subsidiary.
[Regarding Kabbalah,] Yesaiah Tishbi, an authority on the Kabbalah who wrote in Hebrew, said, “It is plain that those prospects and the scheme [of salvation] are intended only for Jews.” Tishbi cited Rabbi Hayim Vital, the chief interpreter of Rabbi Luria, who wrote in his book, “Gales of Holiness”: “The Emanating Power, blessed be his name, wanted there to be some people on this low earth that would embody the four divine emanations. These people are the Jews, chosen to join together the four divine worlds here below.”
[Note: Tishbi is describing the often elusive (for most non-“Jews”) concept of Adam Kadmon.]
Tishbi further cited Vital’s writings in emphasizing the Lurianic doctrine that non-Jews have satanic souls: “Souls of non-Jews come entirely from the female part of the satanic sphere. For this reason souls of non-Jews are called evil, not good, and are created without [divine] knowledge.” – Yesaiah Tishbi, “The Theory of Evil and the (Satanic) Sphere in Lurianic Cabbala” (1942, reprinted in 1982)
A modern and influential expression of the attitudes derived above is evident in the teachings and writings of the late “Lubavitcher Rebbe,” Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who headed the Chabad-Lubavitch movement and wielded great influence among many religious Jews in Israel as well as in the United States. Schneerson and his Lubavitch followers are Haredim; nevertheless, they involved themselves in Israel’s political life and shared many concepts with Gush Emunim and the National Religious Party. The ideas of Rabbi Schneerson that appear below are taken from a book of his recorded messages to followers in Israel, titled “Gatherings of Conversations published in the Holy Land in 1965.” During the subsequent three decades of his life until his death , Rabbi Schneerson remained consistent; he did not change any of the opinions. What Rabbi Schneerson taught either was or immediately became official, Lubovitch, Hassidic belief. Regarding the non-Jew the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s views were clear even if a bit disorderly:
“In such a manner the Halacha, stipulated by the Talmud, showed that a non-Jew should be punished by death if he kills an embryo, even if the embryo is non-Jewish, while the Jew should not be, even if the embryo is Jewish. As we [the Talmudic sages] learn from Exodus 22:21, beginning with the words ‘and if any mischief will follow.'”
This quoted verse is a part of a passage beginning in verse 21, describing what should be done “if men strive and hurt a woman with child,” thus damaging the embryo. Verse 22, whose beginning is quoted by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, says in full: “And if any mischief will follow, then you shall give soul for soul.” (Some English translations use the wording “life for life” instead of “soul for soul.”) The above stated difference in the punishment of a Jew and a non-Jew for the same crime is common in the Talmud and Halacha. The Lubavitcher Rebbe continued:
“The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: ‘Let us differentiate.’ Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of ‘let us differentiate’ between totally different species. This is what needs to be said about the body: the body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of [members] of all nations of the world.”
The Old Rabbi [a pseudonym for one of the holy Lubavitch rabbis] explained that the passage in Chapter 49 of Hatanya [the basic book of Chabad]: “And you have chosen us” [the Jews] means specifically that the Jewish body was chosen [by God], because a choice is thus made between outwardly similar things. The Jewish body “looks as if it were in substance similar to bodies of non-Jews,’ but the meaning … is that the bodies only seem to be similar in material substance, outward look and superficial quality. The difference of the inner quality, however, is so great that the bodies should be considered as completely different species. This is the reason why the Talmud states that there is an halachic difference in attitude about the bodies of non-Jews [as opposed to the bodies of Jews] … ‘their bodies are in vain.’ . . . An even greater difference exists in regard to the soul. Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.”
“As has been explained, an embryo is called a human being, because it has both body and soul. Thus, the difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish embryo can be understood. There is also a difference in bodies. The body of a Jewish embryo is on a higher level than is the body of a non-Jew. This is expressed in the phrase ‘let us differentiate’ about the body of a non-Jew, which is a totally different kind. The same difference exists in regard to the soul: the soul of a Jewish embryo is different than the soul of a non-Jewish embryo. We therefore ask: Why should a non-Jew be punished if he kills even a non-Jewish embryo while a Jew should not be punished even if he kills a Jewish embryo? The answer can be understood by [considering] the general difference between Jews and non-Jews: A Jew was not created as a means for some [other] purpose; he himself is the purpose, since the substance of all [divine] emanations was created only to serve the Jews.” ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth’ [Genesis 1:1] means that [the heavens and the earth] were created for the sake of the Jews, who are called the ‘beginning.’ This means everything, all developments, all discoveries, the creation, including the ‘heavens and the earth – are vanity compared to the Jews. The important things are the Jews, because they do not exist for any [other] aim; they themselves are [the divine] aim.”
After some additional cabbalistic explanation the Lubovitcher Rebbe concluded: “Following from what has already been said, it can be understood why a non-Jew should be punished by death if he kills an embryo and why a Jew should not be punished by death. The difference between the embryo and a [baby that was] born is that the embryo is not a self-contained reality but rather is subsidiary; either it is subsidiary to its mother or to the reality created after birth when the [divine] purpose of its creation is then fulfilled. In its present state the purpose is still absent. A non-Jew’s entire reality is only vanity. It is written, ‘And the strangers shall stand and feed your flocks’ [Isaiah 61:5]. The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists only for the sake of the Jews. Because of this a non-Jew should be punished with death if he kills an embryo, while a Jew, whose existence is most important, should not be punished with death because of something subsidiary. We should not destroy an important thing for the sake of something subsidiary. It is true that there is a prohibition against [hurting] an embryo, because it is something that will be born in the future and in a hidden form already exists. The death penalty should be implicated only when visible matters are affected; as previously noted, the embryo is merely of subsidiary importance.”
Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh, who wrote a chapter of a book in praise of [Baruch] Goldstein and [his murder of Palestinians praying in a mosque], is another member of the [Chabad-Lubavitch] group. Ginsburgh is the former head of the Yoseph Tomb Yeshiva, located on the outskirts of Nablus. Rabbi Ginsburgh, who originally came to Israel from the United States and has good connection to the Lubavitcher community in the United States, has often expressed his views in English in American Jewish publications. The following appeared in an April 26, 1996 Jewish Week (New York) article that contained an interview with Rabbi Ginsburgh:
“Regarded as one of the Lubavitcher sect’s leading authorities on Jewish mysticism, the St. Louis born rabbi, who also has a graduate degree in mathematics, speaks freely of Jews’ genetic-based, spiritual superiority over non-Jews. It is a superiority that he asserts invests Jewish life with greater value in the eyes of the Torah. ‘If you saw two people drowning, a Jew and a non-Jew, the Torah says you save the Jewish life first,’ Rabbi Ginsburgh told the Jewish Week. ‘If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA.’ Later, Rabbi Ginsburgh asked rhetorically: ‘If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value,’ he explained. ‘There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.'”
The difference in the attitudes about non-Jews in the Halacha and the Kabbalah is well illustrated by the difference expressed specifically in regard to non-Jews who have converted to Judaism. The Halacha, although discriminating against them in some ways, treats converts as new Jews. The Kabbalah is unable to adopt this approach because of its emphasis upon the cosmic difference between Jews and non-Jews. The Kabbalah explains that converts are really Jewish souls consigned firstly to non-Jewish bodies as punishments and later redeemed by conversion to Judaism either because the punishment ended or because a holy man interceded. This explanation is part of kabbalistic belief in metempsychosis [i.e., reincarnation], which is absent in the Halacha. According to the Kabbalah, a satanic soul cannot be transformed into a divine soul by mere persuasion.
“The [Yom Kippur] war broke out against the background of the revival of the kingdom of Israel, which in its metaphysical (not only symbolic) status is evidence of the decline of the spirit of defilement in the Western world … The Gentiles are fighting for their mere survival as Gentiles, as the ritually unclean. Iniquity is fighting its battle for survival. It knows that in the wars of God there will not be a place for Satan, for the spirit of defilement, or for the remains of Western culture, the proponents of which are, as it were, secular Jews.”
The modern secular world, according to this approach, “is struggling for survival, and thus our war is directed against the impurity of Western culture and against rationality as such.” It follows that the alien culture has to be eradicated because “all foreignness draws us closer to the alien, and the alien causes alienation, as is the position of those who still adhere to Western culture and who attempt to fuse Judaism with rationalist empiricist and democratic culture.” According to Amital’s approach, the Yom Kippur War has to be comprehended in its messianic dimension: a struggle against civilization in its entirety.” – Tal, quoting Rabbi Yehuda Amital, “On the significance of the Yom Kippur War .”
Finally, the extreme chauvinism of the messianists is directed towards all non-Jews. The 1973 Yom Kippur War, for instance, was in Amital’s view not directed against Egyptians, Syrians and/or all Arabs but against all non-Jews. The war was thus directed against the great majority of citizens of the United States, even though the United States aided Israel in that war. This hatred of non-Jews is not new but, as already discussed, is derived from a continuous Jewish kabbalistic tradition. Those Jewish scholars who have attempted to hide this fact from non-Jews and even from many Jews have not only done a disservice to scholarship; they have aided the growth of this Jewish analogue to German Nazism.
The ideology of the Rabbis Kook is both eschatological and messianic. It resembles in this respect prior Jewish religious doctrines as well as similar trends in Christianity and Islam. This ideology assumes the imminent coming of the Messiah and asserts that the Jews, aided by God, will thereafter triumph over the non-Jews and rule over them forever. (This, it is alleged, will be good for the non-Jews.)
All, or almost all jewish people hate Jesus Christ and the message of Jesus Christ.
How many jews will denounce the Torah hatred and the racism to “all” goyim? All, or most will not. What kind of “proof” are you actually looking for, or is that a trick question?
Is 911 a good example when “all or most” jews were given notice and did not show up for work?
Who are the two people the Jews hate the most?
Yes, during 9/11 there were only 2 Israeli’s killed and 3,000 were told not to come that day. That was one of the first pieces of news we heard when I believe the designated poet laureate that year, who happen to be black brought it up and of course was ridiculed for pointing this fact out. I don’t dispute that, but there were many people who were American Jews who were killed that day as well. Again, showing what Israeli and American statesmen have said is presenting the facts. That’s what you have to do, but you lose me when you say most or all Jews feel a certain way just like if someone said all or most Christians feel a certain way. That is not a true statement. It may seem minor to you, but not to me and other people for reasons I mentioned about sweeping generalizations. Remember, I agree there is a powerful elite group of Zionists trying to change the world in a very sinister way. Many people are being used as tools to reach that objective including Jews and Christian Zionists. I will try and post some videos to counter your argument that there are Jews who don’t support Israel. As far as those in Israel, they are not allowed to speak out and all we can go from are the ones that are pro=Israel=strong Israeli lobbyists, but that does not prove how All or Most Jews feel who live in Israel. I suspect there are as many different points-of=view as there are people. I do know when I watched a recent BBC program about the scientist that has been in prison since he talked to a journalist about the Israeli nuclear program, they interviewed a group of activists who oppose Israeli policies. Here is someone who risked their life to expose what his government was doing. I don’t believe all or most Jews support the policies of their government unconditionally, but I will do some research and post my results.
“One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” –Rabbi Ya’acov Perin in his eulogy at the funeral of mass murderer Dr. Baruch Goldstein.
“Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves … politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves… The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country. … Behind the terrorism [by the Arabs] is a movement, which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self sacrifice.”– David Ben Gurion. Quoted on pp 91-2 of Chomsky’s Fateful Triangle, which appears in Simha Flapan’s “Zionism and the Palestinians pp 141-2 citing a 1938 speech.
Summary “Jews came and took, by means of uprooting and expulsion, a land that was Arab. We wanted to be a colonialist occupier, and yet to come across as moral at the same time.” — Israeli Professor ILan Pappe
Upon examining all of the British and American monitoring of broadcasts [the BBC recorded them and kept transcripts as did the American government] in the area at that time, Irish journalist, Erskine Childers concluded that “There was not a single order, or appeal, or suggestion about evacuation from Palestine from any Arab radio station, inside or outside Palestine, in 1948.”
Arab Exodus “At no point during the war did the Arab leaders issue a blanket call to Palestine’s Arabs to leave their homes and villages and wander into exile. Indeed, I have found no trace of such a campaign, and had it taken place, had there been such broadcasts, they would have been quoted or at least left traces in the documentation.”from the book 1948 and After: Israel and the Palestinians by Benny Morris.
Looting: “Indiscriminate plundering of Palestinian property by Jews [in 1948] was so common that it caused Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to confide to his diary that he was ‘bitterly surprised’ by the ‘mass robbery’ in which all parts of the population participated. […] Tom Segev reported: ‘In Haifa, Jaffa and Jerusalem there were many civilians among the looters.’ Another Israeli writer, Moshe Smilanky, reported: ‘Individuals, groups and communities, men, women and children, all fell on the spoils. Doors, windows, lintels, brinks, roof-tiles, floor-tiles, junk and machine parts …’ Segev commented that Smilansky ‘could have also added to the list toilet bowls, sinks, faucets and light bulbs.'” — p.68 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff
The Result: “Israel’s conquests included not only such major cities as Jaffa, Lydda and Acre, but also 418 Palestinian villages that were destroyed and another 100 villages that were occupied by Jews. In all Israelis took over more than 50,000 homes, 10,000 shops and 1,000 warehouses. It was estimated that about a quarter of the buildings in the new state were originally the property of the Palestinians.” — p. 72 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff
Expulsion: “Nazareth, all-Palestinian with 17,000 residents was captured on 16 July . However, Palestinian residents were allowed to remain, the only major Palestinian town where this happened. In most areas the Palestinians were actively forced to flee or deliberately panic-stricken into fleeing with reminders of Deir Yassin” This happened because “the local Jewish commander who captured Nazareth, Ben Dunkelman, two days after the city’s fall he was ordered to force its civilians to evacuate [but refused to obey orders]”– Donald Neff in his book Fallen Pillars, (1995) p.65., p.288 and supported on pp. 201-202 of Benny Morris’ Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem.
“In 1948, we deliberately, and not just in the heat of the war, expelled Arabs. Also in 67 after the Six-Day War, we expelled many Arabs.” — Tzvi Shiloah, a senior veteran of the Mapai Party and a former deputy mayor of the town of Hertzeliyah. (Modelet, no.12, October 1989)
“For it was precisely the unignorable plight and suffering of the Palestinian Arabs during April-May of that year that forced the hand of the reluctant Arab political and military leaders to take the plunge and invade Palestine on 15-16 May.– Israeli Historian Benny Morris in an 03-04/1998 article in Tikkun.
“Till then everyone in Israel spoke about Arabs who had just run away in 1948, but there existed no real historical research on it. There were two conflicting propaganda versions, one Arab and another Jewish. As one who received his education in Israel, I thought I knew that the Arabs had ‘run away.’ But I knew nothing else. The Jewish generations of 1948, however, knew the truth and deliberately misrepresented it. They knew there were plenty of mass deportations, massacres and rapes . . . . The soldiers and the officials knew, but they suppressed what they knew and were deliberately disseminating lies.”– Israeli Historian Benny Morris in an interview with Rami Tal published in Israeli Daily Yediot Ahronot December 1994.
“Jews came and took, by means of uprooting and expulsion, a land that was Arab. We wanted to be a colonialist occupier, and yet to come across as moral at the same time… The Arab armies — chiefly from Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Transjordan, now Jordan — totaled just over 20,000 men. The core of the Arab nations’ fighting forces remained behind, in part to ensure the internal stability of their own fledgling regimes…. Crucially, Israel had a quiet agreement with Transjordan that its Arab Legion, the strongest of the invading armies, would take over only the West Bank, which the U.N. partition plan had intended as the center of a Palestinian Arab State.”– Ilan Pappe’, Israeli Historian at Haifa University.
“To solidify their gains after the 1967 war, according to UN figures, the Israelis destroyed during the period between June 11, 1967 and November 15, 1969 some 7,554 Palestinian Arab homes in the territories seized during that war; this figure excluded thirty-five villages in the occupied Golan Heights that were razed to the ground. In the two years between September 1969 and 1971 the figure was estimated to have reached 16,312 homes.” –from The Zionist Connection II, by Alfred Lilienthal, p.160. 1978
Aggression: “The Jews again today appeared to be on the offensive, roughly two-thirds of the incidents being initiated by them and in their operations they showed evidence of planning, something absent in general from the Arab attacks.” — The New York Times, 12/12/1947 from p. 53 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff, (1995)
Since its founding one of Israel’s main goals was to change the demography of Palestine and Jerusalem, by luring –even by forcing– Jews to emigrate to Israel, (over other countries,) hence, dispossessing more Palestinians. In a visit to the U.S. in Feb 1987 Yitzhak Shamir asked secretary Shultz to stop offering special refugee status to Soviet Jews. (See New York Times article Israel Asking U.S. to Bar Soviet Jews by Ari Goldman 03/01/1987) Hence, once again Zionism is interested in Jews as number-boosters rather than caring about their well being and “freedom.” In addition, there were indications that Israel’s madness in forcing Jews (especially Arab Sephardic ones) to go to Israel, have reached the level of sending Israeli secret agents to terrorize some Arab Jewish communities in their countries. Examples of this are in the case of Iraqi Jews, 125,000 of whom (97%) fled to Israel in the early 50’s. (See David Hirst The Gun and the Olive Branch pp. 155-64, 1984 quoted in Ruether’s The Wrath of Jonah, 1989).
— Yitzhak Rabin (a “Prince of Peace” by Clinton’s standards), explaining his method of ethnically cleansing the occupied land without stirring a world outcry. (Quoted in David Shipler in the New York Times, 04/04/1983 citing Meir Cohen’s remarks to the Kenesset’s foreign affairs and defense committee on March 16.)
(Apparently, Rabin’s method of “creating conditions that will prompt Palestinian migration” wasn’t as efficient as desired, therefore, house demolitions and rejection of building permits to Palestinians were adopted as additional measures.In 1900 there were about 550,000 Palestinians and 50,000 Jews. Palestinians. Today, despite the extremely high birth-rate of the Palestinians, there are about 900,000 Palestinians (Israeli-Arabs, who own 4 percent of Israel) in Israel, 4.5 million Jews (owning 96 percent of Israel), and about 2.5 million Palestinians crammed in a small, highly-dense and disconnected areas in the occupied territories.)
“I don’t sign orders to destroy the houses of Jews, only of Arabs,”– Haim Miller, deputy mayor of Jerusalem and acting mayor in Olmert’s absence, quoted in Yediot Aharonot, Feb. 7, 1998.
“It is an open secret that Israeli policy makers hoped for a massive emigration of Palestinians as a result of economic and demographic pressure. Therefore, they also developed a clever system which caused numerous Palestinians born here to lose their residency rights when they went to work or study abroad.” — Amira Hass in 08/26/1998 Ha’aretz Op’Ed titled The Settlers are Not to Blame.
“… we have no solution, that you shall continue to live like dogs, and whoever wants to can leave — and we will see where this process leads? In five years we may have 200,000 less people — and that is a matter of enorous importance.” — Moshe Dayan encouraging the transfer of Gaza strip refugees to Jordan (from Noam Chomsky’s Deterring Democracy, 1992, p.434, quoted in Nur Masalha’s A Land Without A People, 1997 p.92).
“The demolition and sealing of houses are among the most severe methods of punishment used by the authorities against Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. To our knowledge, this harsh form of punishment is unique to Israel and is not employed by any other nation. Demolition and sealing of houses in the territories contravene international law that prohibits collective punishment and arbitrary injury to property.”– B’Tselem, an Israeli Human Rights Organization.
“The main difference between Bosnia and Palestine is that ethnic cleansing in the former took place in the form of dramatic massacres and slaughters which caught the world’s attention, whereas in Palestine what is taking place is a drop-by-drop tactic in which one or two houses are demolished daily, a few acres are taken here and there every day, a few people are forced to leave”–Edward Said (Washington Report 09/1998)
“They [Israel] have typically concealed the continually expansionist nature of their project from their western sponsors and pursued a “step by step” process toward these goals. While pointing to militant Arab rhetoric to frighten Jews and convince them that the Arab world is genocidal against Jews and that no peace is possible with them, Israeli leaders have been quite aware of the actual inability of the Arab world to deliver on this militant rhetoric. “–Rosemary and Herman Ruether in “The Wrath of Jonah” (1989)
“Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist, not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushu’a in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.”– Moshe Dayan, addressing the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), Haifa. Quoted in Ha’aretz, 04/04/1969
Israel presents Jerusalem as a “unified” city whose indivisibility derives from its role as the Jews’ sacred and historical capital. It is true that the Jews have a claim to the holy places in and around the Old City. But that historical core represents only three percent of the area of municipal Jerusalem. The other 97 percent was by no means exclusively Jewish. “West” Jerusalem, the 38 square kilometers ruled by Israel as its capital from 1948-67, was built only in the second half of the nineteenth century. Although West Jerusalem is almost exclusively Jewish (the main exception being part of Beit Safafa village), before 1948 about 40 percent of it was owned by Palestinians. As for “East” Jerusalem, although 70 square kilometers was annexed in 1967, only 6.5 square kilometers thereof actually constituted the Jordanian part of the city. The other 63.5 square kilometers — 90 percent of the land annexed by Israel as “East Jerusalem” — in fact belonged to 28 Palestinian West bank villages which suddenly found themselves part of an “indivisible,” “historic” and “sacred” Jewish city. Wallejeh, Sawakhreh and Kafr ‘Amr, Palestinian villages which until today Israelis have never heard of, suddenly acquired the same historical significance for the Jewish people as the Western Wall, making Israeli claims to the entire area of “municipal” Jerusalem seem unassailable. An “inner ring” of settlements has been built on the land of this fictitious “East Jerusalem” since 1967. This series of large satellite cities — Ramot, Rekhes Shuafat, Pigat Ze’ev, Neveh Ya’akov, East Talipot, Har Homa and Gilo, not to mention the incipient Israeli “neighborhoods” in Ra’s al-Amud, Silwan and Shaykh Jarrah — means that “East Jerusalem” now contains more Israelis (about 200,000) than Palestinians. Municipal Jerusalem is an artificial entity, the product of recent military conquest and settlement, rather than an organic city of historic value to the Jewish people.–Professor Jeff Halper from Merip article (Fall 2000)
“Our fathers had reached the frontiers recognized in the partition plan; the Six-Day War generation has managed to reach Suez, Jordan, and the Golan Heights. This is not the end. After the present cease-fire lines, there will be new ones. They will extend beyond Jordan … to Lebanon and … to central Syria as well.” — Moshe Dayan to Zionist youth at a meeting in the Golan Heights July, 1968
“In strategic terms, the settlements (in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza) are of no importance.” What makes them important, he added, was that “they constitute an obstacle, an unsurmountable obstacle to the establishment of an independent Arab State west of the river Jordan.”–Binyamin Begin, (son of the late Menahem Begin and a prominent voice in the Likud party writing in 1991, Quoted on page 159 of Findley’s Deliberate Deceptions)
“Every school child knows that there is no such thing in history as a final arrangement — not with regard to the regime, not with regard to borders, and not with regard to international agreements.” — Ben Gurion, War Diaries, 12/03/1947 following Israel’s “acceptance” of the U.N. Partition of 11/29/1947 (Simha Flapan, “Birth of Israel,” p.13)
Henry Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State recommended that Israel put down the Palestinian uprising “as quickly as possible–overwhelmingly, brutally and rapidly. The insurrection must be quelled immediately, and the first step should be to throw out television, a la South Africa. To be sure, there will be international criticism of the step, but it will dissipate in short order.” He added: “There are no awards for losing with moderation.”– Quoted in 12/97 article by Donald Neff in The Washington Report on Middle East
“All of the killed, with very few exceptions, were old men, women or children. The dead we found were all unjust victims, and none of them had died with a weapon in their hands.”–Eliyahu Arieli, Haganah member who arrived at Deir Yassin shortly after the massacre, O Jerusalem, Collins and Lapierre, 1972.
“In our country there is room only for the Jews. We shall say to the Arabs: Get out! If they don’t agree, if they resist, we shall drive them out by force.”
–Professor Ben-Zion Dinur Israel’s First Minister of Education, 1954 from History of the Haganah
“After the Palmach men left [Deir Yassin], the men of the [Irgun and Stern Gang] started a shameful massacre of the inhabitants…[The massacre] was carried out…when the village was in Jewish hands, and without the inhabitants having taken any provocative action…”Meir Pa’il, official Haganah observer on the scene, Yediot Ahranot, April 29, 1972)
Pointing fingers at the world for its indifference to the genocide of the Jews, while busy using the Holocaust for political gains at the expense of the Palestinians, Zionists have a lot to hide about their indifference, even collaboration, with the Nazis and the Fascists, as their fellow Jews were being sent to concentration camps. It seems that this finger-pointing by the Zionists is nothing more than a smoke screen to hide their dark past of allowing other Jews to die, while the Zionists were lobbying to rob Palestinians of their country. Excellent books on the topic are Zionism in the Age of the Dictators by Lenni Brenner and The Seventh Million by Tom Segev; (both authors are Jews).
Vladimir Jabotinsky Despite his alliance with Ukranian pogromist Petlyura, it wasn’t Jabotinsky who perpetrated the worst alliance with the Nazis, but the Labor Zionists: Ben-Gurion and Weizmann. In 1933 a world boycott German goods spontaneously emerged. Had this boycott been supported by all Jews, Zionists and non-Zionists, some believe that the German economy would have cracked and Hitler toppled. However, it was thanks to Labor Zionist and their “transfer” (ha’avara) agreements with the Nazis, that led to many trade agreements which resulted in the failure of the world boycott against the Nazis. Jabotnisky opposed the transfer agreement, and wanted to champion the boycott. However, during WWII, his heirs (e.g. Begin, Stern, Shamir) attempted their own alliance with the Nazis against the British who were occupying Palestine at the time. (Paraphrased from “The Wrath of Jonah” by Rosemary and Herman Ruether, 1989). This information can also be found in Brenner’s Zionism in the Age of the Dictators; 1983.
“The saving of the Jews in Europe did not figure at the head of the list of priorities of the ruling class. It was the foundation of the State which was primordial in their eyes.” — Tom Segev. “Le septiÃ¨me million” (the Seventh Million) Ed. Liana Levi, Paris, 1993, p.539″
In 1941, Yitzhak Shamir committed:”an unforgivable crime from the moral point of view: he preached an alliance with Hitler, with Nazi Germany, against Great Britain.”– Bar Zohar “Le prophÃ¨te armÃ©: Ben Gourion.” (Fayard. Paris 1966, p.99.)
“If I knew that it was possible to save all the children of Germany by transporting them to England, and only half by transferring them to the Land of Israel, I would choose the latter, for before us lies not only the numbers of these children but the historical reckoning of the people of Israel.”– Ben-Gurion (Quoted on pp 855-56 in Shabtai Teveth’s Ben-Gurion in a slightly different translation).
“There is no such thing as a Palestinian people… It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn’t exist.” — Golda Meir Statement to The Sunday Times, 15 June, 1969. “How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to.” — Golda Meir (quoted in Chapter 13 of The Zionist Connection II: What Price Peace by Alfred Lilienthal )
“We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries,while denying it any employment in our own country …. expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.” — Theodore Herzl (from Rafael Patai, Ed. The Complete Diaries of Theodore Herzl, Vol I)
“… it is the duty of the [Israeli] leadership to explain to the public a number of truths. One truth is that there is no Zionism,no settlement, and no Jewish state without evacuating Arabs, and without expropriating lands and their fencing off.” — Yesha’ayahuBen-Porat, (Yedi’ot Aharonot 07/14/1972) responding to public controversy regarding the Israeli evictions of Palestinians in Rafah, Gaza, in 1972.

“We seem to have thought of everything — except the Arabs” — Judah Magnes
“The very point of Labor’s Zionist program is to have as much land as possible and as few Arabs as possible!” –Yitzhak Navon (“moderate” ex-Israeli president and a leading labor party politician.)

“Israel must decide on the source of the authority of the Israeli state and society: either democracy or theocracy. The corrupt combination of state and religion had corrupted both the state and the religious establishment” — Knesset Speaker Avraham Burg quoted in the Jerusalem Postof Oct 7, 1999.
“Arabs tend to confess; it’s part of their nature” — Moshe Etzioni, an Israeli high court justice, in an interview with Amnesty International, when asked about the unusually high rate of confessions from Palestinians (indicating Israel’s use of torture), 1977. Quote from a Noam Chomsky.
92% of the land in Israel falls under the Administration of the Jewish National Fund, where the land can not be sold to non-Jews. Result: the 18% Israeli-Arabs own only 4% of the land.
If, say, a Peruvian converts to Judaism and emigrates to Israel, he immediately has more rights than Israeli-Arabs who have lived in the land for many centuries.
“[My] awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state.” — Albert Einstein, quoted in an article by Mordecai Briemberg published in The Outlook, 04/01-0/15, 1998.
“We consider ourselves no longer a nation, but a religious community, and therefore expect neither a return to Palestine, nor a sacrificial worship under the sons of Aaron, nor the restoration of any of the laws concerning the Jewish state.” — The Pittsburgh Platform, 1885, the classic statement of the protestant or Reform Judaism).
Zionism had roots in Jewish Messianism. It, however, translated this Messianism into plans for colonization. Most Jews (reform and orthodox) opposed Zionism until WWII. Even though Orthodox Jews wanted to live in Jerusalem, they still considered Zionism a heresy, as the return of Jewish political control of the land of Israel would take place only by the Messiah in his coming. Their desire to live in Israel was only for the purpose of more effective prayer in the Holy land. Ashkenazi Orthodox Jews in addition were offended by Zionism’s effort to transform Hebrew into a modern secular language.

The Christian population of (the ever expanding) Jerusalem was 30,000 in 1948; today it is 2000, due to the systematic ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from that and other areas around Israel. (Paul Findley’s Deliberate Deceptions, 1996) Unlike Jews, Arabs are always denied a permission to build and expand.
