Israel Is World's Premier Producer And Generator Of Terror
15 December 2015

"Germany needs to respond to terror like Israel does,'' the head of Germany's
internal intelligence service (BfV), Hans-Georg Maassen, reportedly said this
With all due respect, the German official is wrong for the following reasons.
Israel, itself a gigantic crime against humanity by any moral standard
imaginable, can never be considered part of the solution for the terror
epidemic now hitting many countries. The naked facts on the ground lead to
the ultimate and inevitable conclusion that Israel is one of the major root
causes of terror and violence in our world today.
In 1948, Jewish-Zionist gangs coming from Eastern Europe ganged up on the
peaceable people of Palestine, arrogating their homeland, slaughtering their
children, destroying their homes, bulldozing their villages and dispersing
the bulk of Palestinians all over the world.
This gigantic crime against humanity occurred thanks to concrete military and
political support by the West.
The Palestinian people, a largely pastoral people lacking the advantage of
powerful international connections, have been crying out for justice ever
since, but to no avail.
In 1967, Israel completed the occupation of the Palestinian homeland,
claiming that some Jews had been living in the country several thousand years
Israel has had nearly 50 years to accommodate the Palestinians like Germany
accommodates the millions of refugees arriving in Germany, fleeing death and
persecution in countries like Syria and Iraq…and also Palestine.!
But Israel chose the racist way, viewing the Palestinians as sub-humans with
utterly no rights, even no humanity.
Again, the Palestinians tried every possible avenue to free themselves from
the diabolical clutches of Jewish oppression but to no avail.
And when they resorted to armed struggle, because every other door was
slammed against their faces, they were called "terrorists and criminals."!
Her Maassen, what are we supposed to do to liberate our country and free our
people from this evil, called Zionism, which is based on the same elements
that gave Nazism its evil essence?
Nazism was based on criminal racism (the master race), Zionism is based on
criminal racism as well, namely the concept of the Chosen people. This is not
an abstract idea which we can dismiss as a form of philosophical illusionism.
It is rather practiced every hour and every day on the hills of the West Bank
as Palestinians are assaulted, humiliated and even killed (even burned alive)
because they are not members of "the holy tribe" and don't worship the
specific deity of that tribe.
It is this sick ideology that prompted the late mentor of Shas Rabbi Ovadia
Yosef to declare that non-Jews, people like me and you, were donkeys or like
donkeys, whom the Almighty created in a human shape in deference to Jews in
order to serve Jews.
Needless to say, this poisonous racism was by no means an unrepresentative
feature of the religious Zionist mindset. The opposite is actually true.
Herr Maassen: I want to remind you of the feelings permeating throughout
Germany following the Versailles Treaty following the First World War.
Though Germany was widely perceived as the aggressor, many Germans felt
German honor was deeply injured by the draconian sanctions and punishments
imposed by the victorious powers.
We all know the rest of the story.
Herr Maassen: Israel, ever since the first day of its establishment, has
committed every conceivable crime against our people. I myself lost three
uncles to Zionist barbarianism even before I was born.
In fact, terror has always been and continues to be the official or
unofficial modus operandi of Israel's policies.
This is why you can't understand the Palestinian question in the absence of
this context. The Palestinian grievances are too real and too legitimate to
be swept under the carpet.
I say this because Israel continues to be the main producer and manufacturer
of terror in our region and in the world at large.
Remember, Herr Maassen, those to whom evil is done, do evil in return.
Maybe doing evil, even in return is not the ideal behavior, but it is often
Wishing you good luck in fighting and defeating terror.
