Global March for Israel Organized by Blacks in South Africa
The march is a response to a recent decision by South Africa’s Department of Trade and Industry that products produced by Israeli companies in Judea and Samaria (Yehuda and Shomron) cannot be labeled as products of Israel.
Relabeling goods from Israel as coming form the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” is discriminatory. It is part of the International Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign to isolate and delegitimize Israel.
Several Pro-Israel groups are joining together to oppose this attempt to delegitimize Israel. Join us and show your support for Israel and condemnation of this move by the government of South Africa.
DATE: Thursday 28 June
TIME: 8:45 – 15:00
VENUE: From the Union Buildings to the Department of Trade and Industry in Pretoria, 1.5 km

the latest on Alon Liel
Former Israeli diplomat calls for boycott of settlement goods
The perils of the peace industry
For quite some time, former Foreign Ministry director general Alon Liel has called for peace with Syria with his one-man organization. This organization is part of the peace industry that has sprung up alongside the familiar industry of lies. A quick look at Syria now indicates how firm Liel’s grasp on reality is.
Now his bizarre political stance is also emerging: The same man who headed the Foreign Ministry and served as an Israeli ambassador to South Africa is now encouraging a boycott on products made in “occupied Palestinian territory” because “settlements are a violation of international law.” He even hinted that Israel was an apartheid state — where of all places? In a South African newspaper. That’s great! The peace industry wants to undermine Israel’s industry.
Liel has an original take on why the peace process is dying — it is not because of the terror and the suicide attacks, but rather because Israel’s desire for peace was “myopic.” He wrote that “this hope belittled the sense of outrage Arabs felt about what they considered a foreign intrusion.” Oh, now we understand why rockets are being fired from Gaza into southern Israel. Whew, I feel better. Silly me, I thought that the myopia stemmed from Israel’s irresponsible policy of bringing Palestinian terror gangs into the land west of the Jordan River, and hoping that they would ensure our safety. This stupid mistake was wrapped in media euphoria and international support until it blew up in our faces. The Palestinians proved time and time again that they are not interested in peace, because it would force them to recognize the Jews’ right to a part of the historical Land of Israel, and that is not acceptable to the Arabs.
Now Liel is calling on South Africans to boycott Israeli goods made in “occupied Palestinian territory,” hoping that the world forces Israel to do what the Left has failed to achieve democratically. Excuse me, but who did we occupy the territory from? As far as I can recall, no ancient Palestinian coins have been discovered in the ground anywhere around here. There is a dispute over the land, and Israel is claiming its right to it. In stark contrast with Liel’s claims, international law does not preclude Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria. The best legal minds, in Israel and around the world, have shown this.
Apartheid? How long will people continue to spread this lie? The only apartheid around here is the fact that Jews aren’t allowed to enter certain places or use certain roads. Currently, 97 percent of the Palestinians are in full control of their lives, in education, economy, foreign relations, culture and more. The only thing that remains under Israeli control is the military, but nobody wants a Hamas state on the Samarian hills, a stone’s throw from Ben-Gurion International Airport. The last 20 years have taught us that when it comes to these things you can’t trust the Palestinians, nor can you trust Liel and his friends.

Alon Liel. Former Director General of the Foreign Ministry. What a perfect soulmate for Goldstone. Alon Liel, who tried to pretend that Israel bears no responsibility or obligation to Jonathan Pollard. Alon Liel, who tried to trick the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee into believing that Bashar al-Assad wants peace and it’s all our fault that we don’t have it. Alon Liel, who urged then-Education Minister Comrade Yuli Tamir to prevent Israeli students from hiking in the Golan. Yes, Alon Liel is a perfect soulmate for Goldstone. A mendacious shmuck.
Unlike the kapos of the Nazi era, he cannot even claim that he did what he did to save his own life.
Today’s article by Stewart Bell in the National Post, “Terrorist says health will suffer if deported,” brings back a host of bad memories.
The terrorist is question is Mahmoud Mohammad Issa Mohammad, 61. He joined the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in about 1968. In December of that year, he and another terrorist attacked an El Al Boeing 707 in Athens as it was readying for takeoff. The two assaulted the aircraft with 83 rounds of ammunition and 6 grenades, killing one passenger. Convicted and sentenced by a Greek court in March 1970 to 17 years in prison, Mohammad was released later that year, when six Palestinian terrorists hijacked a Greek airliner and threatened to blow it up unless he was freed. Mohammad slipped off to Cyprus, Spain, and finally – with his wife, Fadia, and three children – he reached Canada as a landed immigrant on Feb. 25, 1987.
This month we introduced the Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act (Bill C-43). Convicted foreign criminals and fraudsters should not be able to rely on endless appeals as a loophole in order to delay their deportation from Canada. That only endangers ordinary Canadian families.
Below is a link to a media report about the proposed legislation:
Critics for both the Liberal and NDP parties have strongly criticized this law, choosing instead to defend the flawed appeal process that keeps foreign criminals on our streets.
If you disagree with them and want us to go ahead with this new law, please sign the petition at:
It is important that you let me know if you think we are on the right track.
PS: As always, please forward this e-mail to your friends. Ask them to sign the petition if they support this legislation.

With sincere thanks to “Blog Wrath” for his continued support and passion in defence of our values, morals and ethics.
Earlier today JDL-Canada organized a BBQ in Toronto. The great food and the conversations of members and friends contributed to the great time that everybody had. However, the main event of the evening was the presentation of a guest from Israel – Amotz Eyal, Director and Founder of the Tazpit News Agency. It’s hard to believe it, but Tazpit is the ONLY news agency that Israel has.
The introduction by Meir Weinstein, JDL’s Director concentrated on the current problems facing Israel, so it wasn’t very cheerful. The Muslim Brotherhood is taking over Egypt, which means that they will militarize Sinai. Israel should’ve never given it away. When Israel had it under its control, Sinai served a buffer, but the government exchanged it for a piece of paper, which is now totally worthless. The Muslim Brotherhood already stated that is wants to make Jerusalem capital of Egypt. Egypt is even going to strengthen its alliance with Iran. In these difficult times the Jews are not united – some of them even call for boycott and sanctions against the settlements, they even accuse of anti-Semitism friends of Israel like Glen Back (for his criticism of Soros). That’s why it is so important to have people like Amotz Eyal, who expose the false propaganda.
After that Amotz Eyal took over the stage. He is young (only 25 years old) but he achieved quite a few things in his life. He grew up close to Arabs and experienced firsthand their violence. His brother was injured when the family was forced to evacuate from a settlement. Later he served in IDF, taking part in most of their recent military operations. He founded the Tazpit News Agency which, as I already mentioned, is the only Israeli news agency (there was another one, but it was shut down about 20 years ago). In contrast, the Arabs in Israel have 5 news agencies.
The agency’s goal is to show the events as they really happen, defending the Zionist point of view. It operates by using exclusively volunteers (there over 100 of them). They show the good things about Israel and also cover what is done against the country.
In his opinion the PR (public relations) of Israel is poorly managed by the government. He has stated that earlier in his blog:
“Israel’s PR – many people are critical of the Israeli PR, and I think they should be. Israeli PR is defensive at all time, and at the most crucial moments it doesn’t function as it’s supposed to. Israel loves to complain, but she’s forgetting that the best defense is to attack. Not to attack back physically, but to attack the media, immediately after the flotilla departed.”
He shows us a few examples of Palestinian truth distortion. We see a crowd of settlers hurling stones at Arabs. It’s a video used by the Muslim propaganda against Israel. But this is just a small part of the real video – he shows more of it and we see that a large crowd (the target of the attack) is holding and beating a Jew. His rock-throwing friends confused the Arabs so he was able to escape.
Another one is the Al-Durra case, where a father and son were supposedly killed by IDF while trying to hide near a wall.
(This obvious hoax, in which the father was “hit” by 12 bullets, but there was no blood on the scene, was debunked by Philippe Karsenty who fought for years the French television, which first released the video. He had a presentation about that at JDL last year.)
What Amotz found disturbing here was that after the video was released, the IDFcommanders simply apologized for the “murder” as being a mistake. They never investigated what really happened.
However, the Arabs continued to use that hoax – in another picture they claim to show the unit that “killed” Al-Durra. However, they were so ignorant that they didn’t realize that the soldiers in the picture had weapons that shoot rubber bullets.
Next was one of the pictures used most by the Palestinian propaganda – the one with the little girl lying on the ground with a soldier pointing his machine gun at her with his boot on her chest.
The picture was enough to create rage among the Arab fanatical idiots, which they expressed in their atrocious English:
“Azara Moulana: Allahu musta’an. May that shaytaan rot in hell!
Waleed Jaber: What if I did that..? Bankemoon will called the human right at me… I’m gonna Do the same thing to the Zionist.”
Again, Amotz had to deal repeatedly with the army to bring their attention to the hoax. Other than looking staged, the picture contains other clumsy attempt of falsification.
The soldier is armed with AK-47, which has never been used by the IDF. As you can see in the picture above, the IDF uniform has a different colour and the shirt is always tucked in the pants, which doesn’t match the appearance of the “soldier” in the picture.
On another occasion, Tazpit photographers caught Arabs cutting their trees and later blaming that on Israel (the destruction of the olive trees by the Israelis is one of the favourite Palestinian sob stories).
Another picture showed settlers with sticks attacking Arabs. For that action the Jews were arrested by the police and it took two weeks to vindicate them.
As you may have already noticed, the same pattern runs through all of the cases. When Amotz shows us the whole video, we see two Jewish shepherds (that’s why they carry sticks) who are attacked by a group of Arab baghead harpies armed with rocks. They try to protect themselves and eventually other Jews show up, but by that time the Palestinians had already taken their “incriminating” pictures.
And that is getting worse by the day – now IDF must avoid any conflicts in an area where there are Arab photographers, because they’ll always distort the truth. It’s a very simple scheme, which is illustrated by the picture below.
Most often on Friday, groups of women and children gather around Israeli soldiers and try to provoke them. Many people with powerful cameras (seen in the top part) follow every move of the army trying to get something that could be interpreted as a hostile reaction. That’s why the commanders have chosen the unfortunate path of leastresistance – often in such cases the whole unit hides in a bunker rather than risking being blackmailed. That makes Arabs more aggressive and results in assault like the one shown below, where a soldier from IDF was injured by a rock:
It is hard to believe that the Israeli Government has neglected its public relations activities to such extent that it has left the Arabs with their five news agencies to misinform the world by manipulating pictures and films. Not only does that situation help the leftists and the Muslim fanatics to demonize Israel, but it also creates frustration among the friends and supporters of Israel. However, it looks like Tazpit is filling that gap slowly, but consistently.

Palestinian Authority terrorists resumed firing rocket attacks on southern Israel Sunday afternoon.
Palestinian Authority terrorists resumed firing rocket attacks on southern Israel Sunday afternoon.
Three short-range Qassam rockets were launched at the Eshkol Regional Council district area by Gaza terrorists at about 4:30 p.m.
One of the missiles exploded in a residential area, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, but residents of the area had managed to reach their bomb shelters in time.
No one was physically injured, authorities said, although residents with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) had symptoms triggered by the attack.
There were no reports on property damage.
The window of safety in which to reach shelter in that area is approximately 15 seconds from the time the Color Red incoming rocket alert system is activated, until the point of impact.

Obama administration officials naturally took it a step further, portraying the Brotherhood as “largely secular” and “pluralistic.”
Back in the real world, evidence that the Brotherhood is just another hostile Islamist group bent on achieving world domination through any means possible is overwhelming. Here are just three examples that recently surfaced, all missed by the Western media, and all exposing the Brotherhood as hostile to “infidels” (non-Muslims) in general, hostile to the Christians in their midst (the Copts) in particular, and on record calling on Muslims to lie and cheat during elections to empower Sharia:
Anti-Infidel: At a major conference supporting Muhammad Morsi—standing on a platform with a big picture of Morsi smiling behind him and with any number of leading Brotherhood figures, including Khairat el-Shater, sitting alongside—a sheikh went on a harangue, quoting Koran 9:12, a jihadi favorite, to portray all those Egyptians who do not vote for Morsi—the other half of Egypt, the secularists and Copts who voted for Shafiq—as “resisters of the Sharia of Allah,” and “infidel leaders” whom true Muslims must “fight” and subjugate.
The video of this sheikh was shown on the talk show of Egyptian commentator Hala Sarhan, who proceeded to exclaim “This is unbelievable! How is this talk related to the campaign of Morsi?!” A guest on her show correctly elaborated: “Note his [the sheikh's] use of the word ‘fight’—’fight the infidel leaders’ [Koran 9:12]; this is open incitement to commit violence against anyone who disagrees with them…. How can such a radical sheikh speak such words, even as [Brotherhood leaders like] Khairat el-Shater just sit there?” Nor did the Brotherhood denounce or distance itself from this sheikh’s calls to jihad and takfir.
Anti-Christian: It is precisely because of these sporadic outbursts of anti-infidel rhetoric that it is not farfetched to believe that Morsi himself, as some maintain, earlier boasted that he would “achieve the Islamic conquest (fath) of Egypt for the second time, and make all Christians convert to Islam, or else pay the jizya.”
Speaking of the minority Christian Copts of Egypt, in an article titled “The Muslim Brotherhood Asks Why Christians Fear Them?!” secularist writer Khaled Montasser, examining the Brotherhood’s own official documents and fatwas, shows exactly why. According to Montasser, in issue #56 of the Brotherhood journal The Call (al-da’wa), published in December 1980, prominent Brotherhood figure Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah al-Khatib decreed several anti-Christian measures, including the destruction of churches and the prevention of burying unclean Christian “infidels” anywhere near Muslim graves. Once again, this view was never retracted by the Brotherhood. As Montasser concludes, “After such fatwas, Dr. Morsi and his Brotherhood colleagues can ask and wonder—”Why are the Copts afraid?!”
Lying, Stealing, and Cheating to Victory: In a recent article titled “The Islamist Group’s Hidden Intentions,” appearing in Watani, author Youssef Sidhom exposes a document “which carries the logos of both the Muslim Brotherhood and its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party.” Written by Khairat el-Shater, the Deputy to the Supreme Guide, and addressed “to all the Brotherhood branches in the governorates,” the memo calls on Muslims to cheat, block votes, and “resort to any method that can change the vote” to ensure that Morsi wins, which, of course, he just did—amidst many accusations of electoral fraud. El-Shater concluded his memo by saying, “You must understand, brothers, that our interest lies wherever there is the Sharia of Allah, and this can only be by preserving the [MB] group and preserving Islam.”
In short, the Muslim Brotherhood has not changed; only Western opinion of it has. As it was since its founding in 1928, the group is committed to empowering and spreading Sharia law—a law that preaches hate for non-Muslim “infidels,” especially Islam’s historic nemesis, Christianity, and allows anything, from lying to cheating, to make Islam supreme. Now that the Brotherhood has finally achieved power, the world can prepare to see such aspects on a grand scale.

Life Under Sharia
by Marc J. Fink • Jun 21, 2012 at 4:21 pm
Brutality and Injustice
Islamist Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum, defends the freedoms and liberties of Western society against “stealth jihad,” a campaign by Islamists to slowly and methodically implement a Sharia-compliant theocracy in the West. Sharia is Islamic law, based on the Koran and the teachings and personal actions of Mohammad (known as The Sunnah, noted and reported in Hadiths).
Below, very personal examples of life under Sharia in Islamist societies. The intolerance, the brutality, the inhumanity. The extreme lack of religious pluralism, women’s rights, free speech and equality under the law.
1. Sudanese Woman Lashed (Video)
NOTE: Clicking on a video link in this email will take you to this article’s web address, where all videos can be viewed. You can also go to this article’s web address by clicking here.
A Sudanese woman is lashed by uniformed policemen at a Khartoum police station. The crowd of men gathered around laugh at the process. Following the spectacle is an interview with Khartoum Governor Dr. Abd Al-Rahman Al-Khadhr, which aired on Blue Nile TV on December 12, 2010.
Under Sharia law in Sudan, it is illegal for women to wear pants in public. The penalty: 40 lashes.
Excerpt from interview:
Gov. Abd Al-Rahman Al-Khadr: What was aired was the implementation of an Islamic punishment. … We should consider the more important issue in this case – our penal code is in keeping with Islam, and the Shari’a is the main source of our legislation. Islamic punishments are carried out to purge the perpetrator.
INTERVIEWER: This is not a case of a woman wearing pants, is it?
Gov. Abd Al-Rahman Al-Khadr: No, it is not. I did not mention the nature of the crime, because I do not want to slander her. It has to do with immoral activity and prostitution.
A woman caught the attention of Saudi Arabia’s feared Sharia Police at an upscale shopping mall in Riyadh. Contrary to the strictly enforced Sharia law, she was wearing lipstick, nail polish, and a few strands of hair were visible under her veil. The agency that zealously enforces Sharia law in Saudi Arabia is called the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.
This very brave woman stunned the Sharia Police – who are used to absolute obedience – by putting up a public protest and recording the incident with her camera phone. The State Police were eventually called in. It is not known what eventually happened to this woman, who lives in a closed society with no civil liberties. Since the video was posted on YouTube, it is reasonable to assume she survived – at least for the short-term.
Excerpt from video:
Woman: None of your business! I’m free to put on nail polish if I want to. … I’m not getting out! What are you gonna do about it? … You are not the boss of me, and you can’t tell me not to wear nail polish!
A lot has been written about women being stoned to death under Sharia law. But rarely has it been seen. The cell-phone video below shows a woman being stoned to death, allegedly by the Taliban in Pakistan, along the Afghanistan border. Watching it is very upsetting, but necessary to serve witness to the brutality of Sharia law.
The woman is ruthlessly killed in a slow form of execution by having stones thrown at her again and again. Her “crime”: allegedly being seen out with a man.
Below, ABC News shows a heavily edited and sanitized version of the video in a Sept 24, 2010 report by Brian Ross:
Below, an unedited version, as originally shown by Al-Aan TV in Dubai:
See also, Memri’s translation of the Al-Aan TV segment.
World famous concert pianist Fazil Say is considering never returning to his native Turkey after a Turkish court accepted an indictment against him for allegations of insulting Islam. After decades of secular rule, Turkey has recently fallen to the forces of Islamism. Say’s offense? A tweet:
A Kuwaiti man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for allegedly sending “disparaging” tweets about the Prophet Mohammad. Hamad al-Naqi was found guilty of “endangering state security” – whatever that means.
Mr. al-Naqi is actually lucky. Shortly after being arrested for his “crime,” Kuwait’s parliament approved a law imposing the death penalty on any Muslim who insults God, his prophets, messengers, Prophet Mohammad’s wives or the Koran, in any form of expression, if they don’t repent.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad infamously told an audience at Columbia University that there are no homosexuals in Iran. If that’s true, it’s because they are being murdered under Sharia law.
Four Iranian gay men are due to be executed for sodomy under their nation’s Sharia law, according to recent stories in the Huffington Post and Jerusalem Post. The four men — identified by the Human Rights Activist News Agency in Iran as Saadat Arefi, Vahid Akbari, Javid Akbari and Houshmand Akbari — are set to be hanged after their guilty verdicts were approved recently by “high court” judges.
A recent study found homosexuals in Iran are comprehensively and systematically brutalized by the Islamist regime, which exposes them to horrific punishment, bullying and risk of suicide. The first detailed report on Iran’s homosexual community has found that its members live under social and state repression, with some being persecuted, forced into exile or even sentenced to death.
A series of photos from 2005 shows the hanging of two terrified teenage Iranian boys, allegedly for their “crime” of homosexuality. The photos are of Mahmoud Asgari, 16, and Ayaz Marhoni, 18.
The Washington Post reported on the controversy surrounding the photos and the difficulty in verifying the “crimes” of these two teenagers in the closed, totalitarian Islamist society of Iran.
The following is footage of an Islamist demonstration held in Tunisia in response to statements made by an unnamed Tunisian expat deemed heretical to Islam. The footage aired on the Al-Jazeera network on June 8, 2012. Translated by Memri.
Excerpt from video:
Tunisian cleric Mokhtar Jbeli: That man had the audacity to affront us and all that is sacred to us. He does not respect the Tunisian people. He must be punished. We demand that he be placed on trial and punished.
Interviewer: Even if he apologizes?
Mokhtar Jbeli: Anybody who affronts the Prophet Muhammad must be punished by death, even if he repents. The punishment for heresy must be imposed upon him. Even if he repents, he must be killed, because it is the decree of Allah.
Crowd: Allah Akbar. Allah Akbar.
Mokhtar Jbeli: Islam will be victorious, whether the atheists, the infidels, the secular, and their ilk like it or not.
Tunisian cleric Shihab Al-Din Tleish: Let everybody know that for the sake of the Prophet Muhammad, we are willing to sacrifice our fathers, our mothers, and ourselves. We will be slaughtered for your sake, oh Messenger of Allah. We will not allow the Messenger of Allah to be cursed.
According to the Encyclopaedia of Islam, the most authoritative reference work on Islam in the English language, “there is unanimity that the male apostate must be put to death.”
WARNING: The video below of a brutal beheading is EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. It is highly recommended that you do not view. It is posted here only to serve as an historical witness to the brutality of Sharia law – the barbarity of Islamist societies can not be denied. For those who prefer not to view it, a full textual summary can be found here.
The “crime”: converting to Christianity and refusing to renounce it.
