Liberal Christians Record Hateful Rap Songs

Four members of of an organization called Christian Peacemaker Teams have been taken hostage in Iraq with their videotape on Al Jazeera. They had ironically come to aid the very terrorists who captured them by collecting 'evidence on detainee abuses.' The Christian Peacemaking Team claims to be a pacifistic organization. Their motto is, " What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war ?" Interesting question, though the Christian Peacemaker Teams has as much chance of answering it as did the Spanish Inquisition since CPT is very much about violence and hate. CPT has become notorious for confrontations with the US border patrol in Arizona and IDF soldiers at checkpoints, including inciting physical confrontations and then blaming the soldiers for the incidents. A sample of Christian Peacemaker Team's hatefulness can be garnered from the rap lyrics of one of their people (an ex-I

Sex, Drugs and Activism: Arabs want the Left Out

Increasingly activists who want to make a reputation for themselves have headed to Israel to supposedly protect Arabs from the IDF. Such activists will spend a few months aimlessly hanging around arab towns and leap at any IDF soldier in sight, when one shows up, hoping to get a shot of himself on camera (and shot on camera too.) When he goes home to Wisconsin or Oregon or Bonn or Paris, this 'experience' will make an integral part of his radical activism resume when he or she decides to run for the Green Party, post at or apply for a job at Google. In practice this comes down to western twenty somethings from prosperous families that they're rebelling against hanging around arab towns where they tend not to even speak the langauge and living a slacker lifestyle with a noble title. Much like the 'Human Shields' who went to Iraq before the War to 'protect the Iraqi people' they're also not wanted by anyone except the totalitarian arab regimes w

Random Vandalism or a Message?

It's been reported that Netanyahu's car was broken into and two mobile phones stolen after it was supposedly left unguarded. The incident raises a few questions. Netanyahu is running for Likud leadership and is most likely to be the candidate who opposes Sharon in the next election. As a former Prime Minister, his guards are members of Shabak. Standard procedure, observed of them, has been that one guard goes with Netanyahu and one guard remains with the car. This prevents any attempt to wire the vehicle with explosives. Furthermore Netanyahu's car is armored, it would not at all be easy to simply break into. Going to all that trouble for two phones makes little sense nor does it make any sense that the car was unprotected when that was standard procedure. On the other hand such an act serves three purposes. It walks away with Netanyahu's cell phones which may provide usefull information and it allows the replacement of his old ones with new ones on their timing, that c

Democracy wins! Terrorists win!

Wanted Palestinian terrorist Zakaria Zubeidi leader of the Al Aqsa terrorist group in Jenin, affiliated with the Palestinian authority, casts his ballot. Israel has hunted Zubeidi for several years but has promised the United States not to interfere in Palestinian elections. Unsurprisingly two terrorists from the Al Aqsa brigade won office, including one in Jenin where Jamal Abu Rob, who killed a number of fellow Palestinians and gave himself the nickname , "Hitler," is the new elected leader. It's hard to conceive of a better demonstration of the complete absurdity of the liberal and neo-con position that Bush has championed and sacrificed thousands of US troops for, that democracy ends terrorism and extremism. Extremists and terrorists are happy to exploit democracy to get to power as the original Hitler did. As long as we are clueless enough to wave democracy as a cure-all mantra, instead of something that benefits a people ready to accept responsibility, we will

What do you have left to lose?

Today is Thanksgiving and beyond the turkey and the parade and the sweet potatoes, what is thankfullness. To be properly thankfull for anything is to understand not only what it's like to be without it but to know that in the normal state of affairs, you would not have it. And we lack that understanding. All too often we fail to understanding that our comfortable existance in Western countries, in which we are not discriminated against and no laws are passed against us; is an aberrant state of affairs. One that has very rarely existed and not for very long. Yet we have grown used to it. So much so that when Jews once again become tarred with classic anti-semitic stereotypes, whether it's by the religious right or the liberal left we treat it as a nuisance. We have forgotten that the usual state of affairs was for Jews to briefly abide in a nation before being expelled from it. The Jews of the world look at what happened in Gush Katif with apathy and even us, those few who don&#

Democratically Shooting Yourself in the Foot

The US has insisted that bringing democracy to Iraq would bring stability to Iraq. Iraq today is more unstable and more dangerous than ever. Its government is a collection of quarreling parties and the strongest force are the Iranian allied Shiite leaders. The US strongly insisted that Egypt democratize more and open up its electoral process. The neo-cons assured us that this would reduce support for 'islamic extremists.' Now in Egypt's elections, the Muslim Brotherhood which is the originating body for Hamas and many Muslim terrorist groups and the inspiration for Al Queda, has doubled its representation. The Muslim Brotherhood now has 30 seats to Mubarak's party's 50. Thanks to the US, the spirtual guides of Hamas are drawing closer to coming to power in Egypt. The US has insisted on Hamas participating in Palestinian elections. Diplomats, Neo-cons and Secretary of State Rice has assured us that this will promote democracy and reduce extremism. Instead the partici

Conspiracy Fairy on the Loose.

The conspiracy fairy, Fairy Foompha, has been spotted hovering around the Sultan Knish blog for the last few days. As a public service I have volunteered to capture said fairy and send her back to fairyland once and for all!!!! This photo, which can be viewed in the original in any U.S. Post Office, is an accurate portrayal of her insidious countenance. Notice the large eyes and bottle thick spectacles through which she sees her distorted world view! Note the curled toes, which denote her glee at finding conspiracy everywhere and in accusing others of being part of it!!! Take particular note of the ears nestled to the back of the head in the curly green hair. These ears are quick to pick up on gossip. Foompha majored in lashon hara and rechilus in Herb's College of Wizardry and Magic. You will see in her hand the magic wand with which she transforms simple things into the convoluted and ridiculous. The jutting bottom lip which tell of determination to find something wrong with some

Conspiracy Theories and the Secret of My Secret Identity

I received a rather strange email this week which had been circulated to a number of people including Arutz 7's Tamar Yonah and Worldnetdaily's Aaron Klein and Reuven Koret accusing me of really being Steven Plaut. Why Steven Plaut who has a successful career as a pundit would create an obscure blog to post long articles which he never places in media publications is unclear to me but apparently it involves my supposed involvement in a war against Barry Chamish, whose follower this person is. I've actually only written two pieces on Barry Chamish among over 400 posts in nearly a year so this blog isn't remotely Chamish centered. I have pointed out that Chamish is affiliated with Neo-Nazi holocaust deniers and is himself promoting theories that amount to holocaust denial, e.g. the Holocaust was arranged by the Jews, a form of Holocaust denial innovated by the Soviet Union and repeated by some in the arab world which claims the Zionists were behind the Holocaust. I

Tzedakah and Misphat; Givers and Takers

In this parsha, derivations of the word yada, know, are used to indicate intimacy. When G-d decides to tell Avraham of his intentions to destroy Sdom, he says Ki Yedaativ, for I have known him. The word Yeedativ is used here to mean love, Hashem is saying that he has known Avraham that through his knowledge of him Avraham is beloved to G-d. When the men of Sdom encircle Lot's house demanding his guests, they also use a derivation of yada. They demand that the guests be brought out to the mob, Veneida Otam. Here the word also involves intimacy but their intention is rape. In both usages an intimate knowledge is meant but in the first case it involves love for another that comes through knowing another, in the second it involves an assault for personal satisfaction. In its first use G-d sees the goodness of Avraham and gives him special privileges and rewards. In the second use the men of Sdom are so threatened by generosity towards strangers, that they threaten cruelty towards them

France's Infitada: A Circus Without a Net

Muslim rioting in Paris continues, spreading across France from cities to small suburbs and into other countries including Belgium and Germany with its own large Muslim populations. Curfews have now been declared across France and there is talk of bringing in the army to stem what is now being called The French Intifada Aside from the billions in destroyed property, in torched homes and cars, people have been badly injured, especially the elderly whom in true cowardly fashion the followers of Islam prefer as their prey and whom in true cowardly fashion, the French people are happy to leave behind as they flee. A 61 year old man has died of a severe beating from Muslim rioters and an elderly disabled woman had gasoline poured on her and set on fire. Meanwhile the same media that has shrieked endlessly about Abu Ghraib treating it as the worst crime in human history on par with the Holocaust manufactures excuses for the murderous mobs. To the media women's underwear on the head i

The Forgotten Yitzchak's: Who will remember them?

As is the case every year, Israel or at least its politicians and some of its more gullible youth turn once again to the pseudo-religious ceremonies presided over by the anti-religious left for the commemoration of the assasination of Yitzchak Rabin. The real raison d'etre will be a circus aimed at cheerleading the same distastrous policies that has cost numerous Israeli lives, created a terrorist state within Israel's borders and is bringing Israel closer and closer to the brink of anhiliation. The same policies which are rationally indefensible, are lent an aura of martyrdom through their association with a dead politician. But while the mawkish sentimentality will flow like bribes in the histadrut, who will remember the other Yitzchak's. The Yitzchak's murdered by terrorists since the start of Oslo, the victims of Israel's national hero. Yitzhak Ringel was a Baal Tesuvah who became religious after the death of his parents. In 2001 he was killed by a suicide bombe

Europe replaced the Jews with 20 Million Arabs

The Europeans Replaced Their Jews with 20 Million Arabs This article was written by Sebastian Villa Rodriguez in one of Spain's newspapers "I walked along the streets of Barcelona when suddenly the horrible truth hit me. Europe died together with Auschwitz. We killed 6 million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned an entire culture of intelligence, talent and creativity. We annihilated these brilliant people, truly brilliant and grand people, who helped change the face of this earth. The contribution these people made in all phases of our life such as: science, art, international trading and especially providing this world with a conscience. These are the kind of people we burnt. And, under the illusion of the need to be more tolerant, we had the desire to prove to ourselves that we are healed from our prejudices, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims who brought unto us stupidity and ignorance, religious zealotry and impatience, crime and

Avraham and the Greatness of Stars and Dust

In Parshat Lech Lecha, G-d first promises Avraham that his seed will be as numerous as the dust of the earth and then as the stars in the sky. These two promises are a contradiction in contrasts, dust is low and common and stars are great and glorious. What do such promises mean? Dust is the source of human life as man comes from dust and returns to dust leaving behind nothing but dust. By contrast the light of stars endures even after the stars themselves are gone, their light shines on to distant places. Since these promises do not apply to merely one generation but the entire continuity of the Jewish people, we might consider them to be two ways of looking at what a generation of the Jewish people will leave behind after it passes on. A generation that is dust may be numerous and cover the world but what it leaves behind is mere dust. A generation that is like stars may die but the light of their greatness shines on after them in this world. It also reflects two ways of looking

Why Bloomberg Won

New York City Mayor's Mike Bloomberg won reelection today by the largest margin of any politician, including the popular Rudy Guliani. The secret of his success though certainly isn't popularity or charisma but inoffensiveness. Where previous New York mayors like Ed Koch or Guliani might have positioned themselves as aggressive activists and strong leaders, Bloomberg is secure in a persona as a grey middle manager. Unlike the larger than life figures of CEOS's we encounter all too often in biographies and in court records, Bloomberg is devoid of any personality livelier than a supervisor at the DMV. He lacks any human touch or empathy but this positions him as a manager rather than a mayor of r New York. Like a manager he is devoid of humanity but also inoffensive. He is not relatable but people presume that he does a good job because his entire aura is professional and inhuman and it is that very inhumanity that gives credibility to his competence. Where other Mayors have

Top 10 Media Excuses for Muslim Riots

10. Riots, what riots? Hey did you hear Libby got indicted? 9. Rioting and looting are too judgemental. Can't we just call it 'disorderly shopping.' 8. I'm sure they were just protesting some story we made up about a Koran getting flushed. 7. We have no right to judge their culture, of which I'm sure looting and burning things is a key part. 6. They're just angry about being unemployed due to their chronic looting. 5. This would have never happened if Bush hadn't stolen the election in 2001. 4. This would have never happened if Israel hadn't existed. 3. I don't understand why they would riot in a socialist country instead of a pro-war red state. 2. Sometimes burning cars is the only way to convince the networks to bring back Bill Cosby. 1. Riots, what riots?

From Gaza to Paris, Muslims love to play with fire

But it's the countries that host and cater to them that get burned. ( Witness Muslim rioters shouting Allah Akbar ) Coming soon to America...

First they came for the Nazis and then the Liars

For all that some Jews embrace Niemoller, he of the famous 'first they came for the communists' poem; he was a Nazi and enthusiastically supported Hitler until Hitler's policies, not those involving Jews of course, violated his Christian principles he also commanded troops in a right wing coup that predated Hitler and described Nazism as based on a 'solid moral christian foundation' He voted for the Nazi party and made speeches on behalf of Nazism and Hitler. His difference with the Nazis came not over killing Jews but killing Jews who had converted to Christianity (a position he shared with the Catholic Church) but he remained an ardent nationalist even from Dachau, he wrote a letter volunteering to serve in the navy when WW2 began. His allies attempted to pass off the letter as a forgery but when Niemoller was rescued, he admitted it was authentic and that he had "never quarreled with Hitler over political matters, but purely on religious grounds".

Walking Before G-d

Where Parshas Bereishis begins with the creation of the world, Parshas Noach begins with the destruction and thus the re-creation of the world. The question is often asked why Noach, unlike Avraham who prayed for Sodom, did not pray for those who would be flooded. Indeed when the waters are called 'Mei Noach', the waters of Noach; it is said that he was partially responsible for them by, unlike Avraham, failing to influence his generation. Various answers are given to this question but it's worth considering the difference betweeen Avraham and Noach. Noach is described as a Tzaddik and as Tamim, perfect. Noach was the son of generations of righteous men. He was righteous but he did not understand that it was possible to be away from G-d and then to come close to him. He did not pray or try to influence his generation because he had no reason to believe it was even possible. The world until now had been one where sin was followed by punishment. Adam and Chava sinned and were

Muslim Rioters set Disabled Woman on Fire in Paris

(Sky News) " A handicapped woman was doused with petrol and set on fire by youths during another night of rioting in Paris. The 56-year-old suffered third degree burns to 20% of her body in the attack. Witnesses said a youth poured petrol over the woman and then threw a Molotov cocktail on to the bus she was travelling on in the suburb of Sevran. Other passengers were able to flee but she was unable to escape because of her disabilities." Did France along with other Europeans really believe they would be immune to the savagery and brutality that Muslims have inflicted on non-Muslims around the world? Did they think that the same brutal ideology that beheads Indonesian schoolgirls and Thai farmers, that those who blow up Israeli buses and gun down tourists in Egypt, who destroyed the World Trade Center and bombed discos full of Australians wouldn't do the same things in the hearts of their cities. France has been the leader of the European opposition to America and in symp

Strength in Jewish Diversity

Sefardim were named after Sefard or Spain and Ashkenazim after Ashkenaz or Germany, yet today there are virtually no Sefardim in Sefard or Ashkenazim in Ashkenaz. The old Chassidic communities of Eastern Europe and Russia are long since smashed to bits, the Jewish communities of Western Europe increasingly succumb to assimilation and the Jews of the middle east have for the most part left their lands. The old Jewish communities, the traditional places where Jews once lived have been for the most part destroyed or wither away. The geographical distinctions collapse as most Jews increasingly live in two new countries; America and Israel, and in communities where they are fairly close together. No longer do countries divide minchagim but often miles or a handful of blocks or nothing at all. The old separatism is gone along with the old communities but the customs and traditions of those communities remain and continue on. To most people a black hat is a black hat, but to those who notic

Judge Alito accused of leaning tower, being addicted to Canolis

On the heels of reports that leading Democrats had accused Italian-American Judge Alito, Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court of Mafia connections, Democrats denied that their accusations were motivated by bigoted stereotypes but a concerted effort to uncover the truth. "I personally respect the Italian-American community," Senator Schumer said, "and I would no more think of insulting them than I would of kissing them on the mouth. What we're trying to do is take a carefull look at Judge Alito's background and slander him in whatever way is available to us. If that means accusing him of being in leauge with Sacco and Vanzetti or of plotting to put the Pope in the Oval Office so be it." Democratic leaders continue to insist there is obviously nothing racist in their statements whatsoever and that their views have been taken out of context. "I respect Judge Alito's judicial background but I also hear he hangs around the fish market," Senator
