Arab Jews

"Once upon a time not so long ago, an Arab could be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc… Up until the 1950s, the Jewish community was an integral part of the fabric of Arab society. They spoke Arabic and contributed to the arts and sciences. They had been rooted in countries in like Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Yemen for millenia. Growing up, my grandparents would recount fond memories of their Jewish neighbors and colleagues in the golden days of Basra and Baghdad, insisting that they were always considered – and considered themselves- Iraqi first. They would attend their weddings and parties and my paternal grandfather worked with them in municipal affairs during his career as the Mayor of Basra. And stories abound from Iraqi family friends, about how they, Muslim Iraqis, held their Jewish friends’ possessions for safekeeping when they had to flee. Theirs was a bond that seemed to go beyond friendship. For sure the history of Jews in the Arab World is a complex one that had its ups and downs, but once upon a time, they were brothers and sisters."

indeed all iraqis were equal before the secular civil law and bond by the common feeling of belonging and loyalty to iraq.

but then the israeli intelligence through propaganda and false flag operations sew confusion and terrorized most iraqis of jewish faith into leaving their country and embracing zionism over iraqi patriotism and arab nationalism...as per the zionist stated mission and policy towards all integrated enlightened jews around the world since the creation of the movement.

the big bad guy with the moustache had nothing to do with it and was never against jews either...merely against foreign colonizers of arab land and their aiders and abettors, regardless of religion.

its scorching hot in the summer...i strongly suggest mojo should take a break and go for a vacation, preferably in puerto rico with a few hot latina babes and a few cold beers. lol

"A new German study shows that boys growing up in pious Muslim families are more likely to be violent"

In other news, Aton supports the murder of Iraqis and the invasion of Iraq.

That is all.

I did a blogroll revue yesterday.So many blogs don't last very long. You continue to produce.
I quoted this post, and the one preceding it.

Aton said...

Yes Bruno, it’s a very interesting article. Why do you think Pious Muslim boys are twice as likely to be violent then their Christian counterparts?

Do you think it is because they are oppressed by an intolerant German society?

Or could Islam indoctrinate young men into violent predispositions?

Aton said...

Look at Anon (anti-Zionist) for instance. While he lives comfortable and free on the fruits and sacrifices of American patriots, he anonymously cheers for the death and destruction of the Iraqi people. His Islamic indoctrination and predisposition to violence motivates his illogical lust for Iraqi blood.

"Israel jails Arab for 'deceit rape'"

http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2010/07/201072191017847251.html

What kind of country would jail someone for "rape by deception"? Any woman could claim this for any reason. What a misguided law (racism).

Bruno said...

LMAO @ Aton's absurd extrapolations!

Bruno said...

BY using ATON's absurd logic, we could conduct the following comparison, which allows us to conclude that BEING AMERICAN predisposes one to being a violent murderer, whereas BEING MUSLIM predisposes one to being a law-abiding citizen:

Intentional homicide rates per 100,000 population:

United States: 5,4

Some evil Muslim countries:

Palestine: 3,85
Iran: 2,93
Malaysia: 2,31
Jordan: 1,75
Tunisia: 1,22
Kuwait: 0,99
Bahrain: 0,95
Saudi Arabia: 0,92
Algeria: 0,64

Tsk, tsk. Aton, hoisted by his own petard.

Try again, sonny.

:D

Lest we forget:

" Resolution 661 prohibited the sale or supply of any goods to Iraq (or to Kuwait while it was under Iraqi control) with the explicit exception of ‘supplies intended strictly for medical purposes, and, in humanitarian circumstances, foodstuffs’. However, every single item Iraq sought to import, including food and medicine, had to be approved by the ‘661 Committee’, created for this purpose and staffed by diplomats from the 15 members of the Security Council. The committee met in secret and published scarcely any record of its proceedings. Thanks to the demise of the Soviet Union, the US now dominated the UN, using it to provide a cloak of legitimacy for its unilateral actions.

The 661 Committee’s stated purpose was to review and authorise exceptions to the sanctions, but as Gordon explains, its actual function was to deny the import of even the most innocuous items on the grounds that they might, conceivably, be used in the production of weapons of mass destruction. An ingenious provision allowed any committee member to put any item for which clearance had been requested on hold. So, while other members, even a majority, might wish to speed goods to Iraq, the US and its ever willing British partner could and did block whatever they chose on the flimsiest of excuses."

Bruno, did you even read the study?

I wouldn't use the term patriotism in conjunction with America, since they are not a real nation, but instead a collection of various degenerates from all over.
Some black, some German, some South Korean, so this is not a nation, and there is no genuine patriotism to speak of.
Rather it's just a word they hijacked, in order to have a name for their ideology of hatred and stupidity
