Quote of the Day

H/t, Goldblog, but I think he picked the wrong quote, one with more “Isrealist” overlap. Here’s the one I like:

“Oh Muslims! The Jews are the Jews. The Jews are the Jews. Even if donkeys would cease to bray, dogs cease to bark, wolves cease to howl and snakes to bite, the Jews would not cease to harbor hatred towards Muslims. The Prophet said that if two Jews would be alone with a Muslim, they would think only of killing him. Oh Muslims! This land will be liberated, these holy places and these mosques will be liberated, only by means of a return to the Quran and when all Muslims will be willing to be Jihad Fighters for the sake of Allah and for the sake of supporting Palestine, the Palestinian people, the Palestinian land, and the holy places in Palestine. The Prophet says: ‘You shall fight the Jews and kill them, until the tree and the stone will speak and say: ‘Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah’ – the tree and the stone will not say, ‘Oh Arab,’ they will say, ‘Oh Muslim’. And they will not say, ‘Where are the millions?’ and will not say, ‘Where is the Arab nation?’ Rather, they will say, ‘Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah – there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’ Except for the Gharqad tree [tree mentioned in the Quran – Ed.], which is the tree of the Jews. Thus, this land will be liberated only by means of Jihad…” — Palestinian Authority TV, January 29, 2010

And Abbas says there is “no more incitement at any mosque” …

The fact is that this kind of incitement doesn’t just affect the radical religious members of Fatah, but contributes to the normalization of dehumanization of Jews for the entire Palestinian community of the West Bank — except those members who identify this as racist demonization and make a concerted effort to reject it for that reason.

As I’ve mentioned, I’m disappointed that a first-class humanistic mind like Andrew’s didn’t seize on ending this dehumanizing propaganda — publicly-funded by them, which means indirectly funded by us — as an excellent demand to couple with an absolute construction freeze in the settlements.
