Remember the Peanuts character, 'Pig Pen'? Every where he went, he was surrounded in a cloud of dirt and dust that was attracted to him, wherever he went.
Yesterday, In Garbage In, Garbage Out: Arab 'Intellectuals' Opine, we wrote about the psychopathy of Issa Khalaf, the Oxford educated 'intellectual' who posits that it is Jews, and not Arabs that suffer from mass psychosis.
In another post that defies reality, our favorite ape in a tuxedo, Ann Khoury, wrote Petitioning For Social Action, yet another mindless and deliberately misleading screed. As usual, she reinforces her obsession with Jews (almost always, her arguments are predicated on the opinions of that minority of Jews that fortify her shallow 'scholarship' and deeper bigotry) by asking that readers sign a petition against the Jewish National Fund. Why? Because in her mind, the JNF is racist. Why is the JNF racist? Because the Israeli Knesset plenum approved the first reading of a bill which calls for all lands under Jewish National Fund ownership to continue be allocated to Jews only as has been its covenant for over 100 years. The bill passed by a majority of 64-16 members of the Knesset. A statement released by the JNF included the following remarks:
We are gratified that the government of Israel, which since 1961 has been entrusted with management of JNF lands through the Israel Land Authority (ILA), recognized that the land purchased by the Jewish people for the Jewish people should remain in the hands of its rightful owners.
Just so we're clear, an understanding of just what the evil JNF does is in order.
In over 106 years, JNF has evolved into a global environmental leader and become the central address for the land and people of Israel. JNF has planted 240 million trees. Built over 1,000 parks and recreational areas. Constructed security roads. Educated students around the world about Israel. Created new communities so that Jews from around the world would have a place to call home. Discovered drip irrigation and new means of growing plants under arid conditions, bringing green to the desert. Built over 190 reservoirs and water recycling centers, increasing Israel's water supply by 10%.
It is no surprise that Ann el Khoury is upset. The JNF serves as yet another mirror that highlights Arab failure. Those accursed Jews did in 100 years what the Arabs failed to do for two millenia.
If the likes of Ann Khoury are outraged at that land, bought and paid for by the JNF will remain in the hands of Jews, where is her outrage at the Palestinian Waqf (Islamic religious commission that oversees Muslim religious sites in Jerusalem), that won't even allow Jews to pray at the Temple Mount? Where is her outrage at the Palestinian authorities that have declared sales of property to Jews a capital offense? Where is the outrage at the Arab nations that nationalized the property of Jews in communities that predated Islam?
A purported Christian, el Khoury seems to be far more comfortable with the racism and bigotry of Islamic radicals than she is with real Christian values. She has yet to label overt anti Jewish sentiment as racism and she has yet to condemn the ideologues that sponsor and apologize for terrorism.
Of course, that really is no surprise. She is deliberately obscures her view on origins of 9/11 tragedy and some of her biggest and most adoring fans are '9/11 truthers,' proponents of the idea that the tragedy was an 'inside job,' and she never discourages that preposterous notion.
In addition, she seems to take great comfort in redefining, if not denying the Holocaust. She believes and endorses the ideas of those for whom the Holocaust is part of a conspiracy of sorts, an event 'used' by Jews to justify the oppression of Palestinians.
Nowhere does she speak of Arab and Palestinian culpability in support of the Adolph Hitler and his ugly and bigoted beliefs- ideas still echoed and supported in Arab world media, schools and religious instruction ('We'll finish what Hitler started'). She does not ask- or seem to be bothered as to why Mein Kampf is the second most widely owned book in the Arab world, second only to the Quran and a perennial best seller.
Lastly, she cannot address the reality that the Nazi-like Israelis have proved to be remarkably inept at genocide and the elimination of the Palestinians, despite the well documented Palestinian racism, bigotry and hate (Never criticized by el Khoury). Israel it seems, oppresses people by allowing their free speech in media, schools and from the pulpit. Very oppressive, indeed.
See this for a look at the reality of the Palestinian 'occupation' by the Israelis.
A while back, a reader wrote and asked how it was that a credible university would even entertain the idea of giving the likes of Ann el Khoury a graduate degree. Surely, our reader noted, her thesis adviser would be put off by her intellectual dishonesty and deceit. Carefully couching her bigotry and deceit cannot hide her agenda.
Good questions- and questions that deserve answers.
As we have noted before, Ann el Khoury opining on the Middle East is like a whore opining on family values.
Think Pig Pen.
