This man is bigot who hates Jews and denies them their existence

My online comment to the New York Times regarding our Amnesty
International visit to Nabi Saleh, the West Bank Palestinian village
where residents are protesting an expanding Israel settlement.  "Is This
Where the Third Intifada Will Start?".

"Bassem filled his hands for me with collected plastic and rubber-coated
bullets that he says were fired by Israeli security forces...."

Your opinion expressed in this article shows you to be a bigot and a man
who hates Jews.... plain and simple. All that Territory in the West Bank,
every inch of it, comprises the core of the historical homeland of the
Jewish people. It put forth an opinion such as :


I was in the Palestinian village Nabi Saleh on Thursday, and I had the
opportunity to meet with Bassem Tamimi and other members of the community.

The visit was part of an ongoing Amnesty International research mission
in the West Bank. We are documenting the use of excessive force by the
Israeli Defense Forces against Palestinian protestors.

The realities of engaging in protests under Israeli occupation become
quite clear when meeting the Tamimi extended family. Bassem filled his
hands for me with collected plastic and rubber-coated bullets that he
says were fired by Israeli security forces. Coatings aside, each bullet
I examined had a hard metal interior.

Inside one of the Tamimi homes, a coffee table serves as an exhibit of
used tear gas canisters and other spent munitions. And as I walked up
and down the streets of this small community, family members had strung
up countless more used tear gas canisters like Christmas tree ornaments.

And let's be clear about one thing: A policy of settling civilians in
occupied territory - such as Israel's settlement policy - is a serious
violation of the laws of war. It can be prosecuted as a war crime under
the statute of the International Criminal Court.


This denies the essential right of the Jewish People to live in their
own land, let alone supports the absurd position that Jews, by settling
in the Judean Hills commit a crime. Jews can settle wherever they want,
especially in their own home. And the link between the Jewish people and
these lands is a historical fact, etched in our bone, bone, and within
the land itself.

Any other opinion is an opinion of a bigot. Are you a bigot? Indeed,
you are and a criminal one at that.

Whatever injustices have now resulted from the genocide and force remove
of Jews from this land, repeatedly, occurring over the centuries and
perpetrated by others, and not the Jews, has resulted with the Jews
holding this ugly and difficult political problem. We are the ones
stuck with results of this crime against our people, for which the West,
Persians and the Arabs and the Turks all share bloodstained hands. The
forced removal and genocide of Jews from their home, can not be fixed by
ignoring the crimes against the Jewish people that created this problem
to begin with. And now that you have left the Jews with this mess, it
is up to them to define the moral guild for solving the problem that you
created. You bigots fucked this up enough and have no moral standing in
this delemia.

Your not convinced and need more proof? How about this beauty:

Putting aside all the purposefully missleading things written in the article, there is one particularly onerous quote that makes any thinking persons head shake in disgust.

But even if the Muslim Brotherhood managed to gain political power, so what?
They formally renounced violence in 1970, and for forty years, they have stuck to
the plan. Al Qaeda's second in command, Ayman Al Zawahiri, even criticized them
for doing so.

Say again? Do you think we are all totally stupid?

Hamas is a violent outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni, Islamist, religious movement that originated in Egypt and seeks broad social, moral, and political reforms based upon Islam. From the late 1960s, Hamas' founder and spiritual leader, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, was actively involved in non-violent Muslim Brotherhood activities in the Palestinian Territories, including preaching, education, and charity work. In 1973, Yassin established al-Mujamma' al-Islami (Islamic Center), an umbrella organization overseeing Muslim Brotherhood activities in the Gaza Strip. By the early 1980s, Yassin's ideology had begun to radicalize with Yassin more openly espousing violence against Israel.

After the outbreak of the first Palestinian intifada in December 1987, Hamas was established as the political arm for Muslim Brotherhood activities and Hamas members began actively promoting the uprising. In August 1988, Hamas released its official charter. Hamas is dedicated to creating an Islamic state in the territory of "Palestine" (all of Israel and Palestinian Territories). According to Hamas' charter, the land of Palestine has been endowed to Islam, and it is therefore the duty of all Muslims to liberate Palestine through violent jihad.

The ADL reports:
Description of their emblem: A brown square frames a green circle with a white perimeter. Two swords cross inside the circle beneath a red Koran. The cover of the Koran says: "Truly, it is the Generous Koran." The Arabic beneath the sword handles translates as "Be prepared."

Explanation: The swords reinforce the group's militancy and, as traditional weapons, symbolize historic Islam. They also reinforce the group's commitment to jihad. The Koran denotes the group's spiritual foundation. The motto, "Be prepared," is a reference to a Koranic verse that talks of preparing to fight the enemies of God.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna, an Egyptian seeking to overthrow Egypt's monarchy, expel western influences and establish an Islamic theocracy. Since its founding, the Muslim Brotherhood, a Sunni Islamic movement, has pursued these goals through political activity, ideological influence and acts of violence. The group became known for its extensive terrorist operations, including the failed assassination attempt of Egyptian leader Gamal Abdul Nasser. Its activities led to violent crackdowns by the governments of Egypt and Syria; it is banned in those countries.
