Jewish extremist is suspected of 2 murders a sanctimonious Mort Zuckerman pinned to Palestinians

Israel/Palestine
on 32 Comments

It doesn’t get any better than this. Haaretz:

Police suspect that Yaakov (Jack) Teitel, who has confessed to murdering two Palestinians and carrying out a long list of other, less deadly, terror attacks, also murdered two traffic policemen in the Jordan Valley eight months ago – a crime originally attributed to Palestinian terrorists.

Mort Zuckerman, leading Israel lobbyist and powerful publisher, complaining about bias against Israel in the media, at Huffpo last spring:

Did you hear about the two policemen who stopped to help a driver stuck with a flat–and were shot to death in the head at point-blank range?

Did you know about the 120-kilogram bomb planted in a parking lot adjacent to a shopping mall where thousands of people were milling about the stores, restaurants, and movie theaters?

No, of course, you didn’t. These are just two everyday incidents of the ordeal confronted by people in Israel while the world and the political leaders look away. Outrages like these do not make it into the Western media…

Israel has taken many risks for peace. The response has been rocket fire, terrorism, more incitement, more vilification, more shedding of Israeli blood, and less security…

A Palestinian state cannot be created by terrorism.

    It wouldn’t be the first time that people have jumped to conclusions on events in Israel/Palestine. Both the left and the right do.

      Oh yes, make another false moral equivalence. You’re an expert at those. I have to wonder just how frustrating it is for your wife when she asks you if you were the one who left the toilet seat up.

    That is a travisty……….comon be for real… do you think it would matter if the truth was printed in anyplace….really now.
    I expect a lot more common sense but that would be impossible after so many years of brainwashing by such people as mort, the dumbing down of the world seems to be the strongest movement yet…and whom is it that controls the media…really now.
    Never again ///will I expect the truth //never again will I expect anyone to think for themselves// never again will I want peace for murderers to roam free// never again will come very soon again and again and again, there seems to be a tide turnning and the one left out is justice. They can not even tell the real name of the “”goldstone report”” correctly, and after the votes…it is proof that the usa should be dismantled at the government level. the world will be better off if it ends, considering they can do no wrong…those………
    and seem to want to include the palestinians as terrorist for defensive tactics, (no different then others jews have in ww11) and even today in afganistan and iraq

      But he does have a mouth is full of teeth – half of them capped in Israel.

    Consider the first sentence in the Haaretz article. “Police suspect that Yaakov (Jack) Teitel, who has confessed to murdering two Palestinians and carrying out a long list of other, less deadly, terror attacks, …” Note Teitel has already confessed to “a long list [of] terror attacks” including “murdering two Palestinians.”

    However, note the photograph caption Alleged Jewish terrorist Yaakov Teitel. He has already admitted to terrorist crimes. It’s not alleged any more. Also note the title ‘Jewish terrorist’ suspected in murder blamed on Palestinians. Why the single quotes around ‘Jewish terrorist’? What exactly are those supposed to signify? I am sensing reticence and discomfort.

    Am I mistaken in thinking that if the ethnicities/religions were reversed and Teitel were Palestinian, the caption would read Palestinian terrorist Yaakov Teitel and the title would read Palestinian terrorist suspected in murder blamed on Jews?

    Mort Zuckerman isn’t just sanctimonious. Zuckerman flat out fucking lied. [As editor and owner of US NEws & World Report, he has access to the feeds for verification, not to mention the one-ringy-dingy, two-ringy-dingy ability to pick up the phone and call his peeps in Tel Aviv.]

      You’re not the first one to make this mistake, and you won’t be the last, but you are wrong in your assumption. In Israel they use the European form to denote dates. Thus the Haaretz update of 4/11/2009 means the 4th of November, not the 11th of April. So the Zuckerman report preceded the Haaretz article by nearly 7 months, instead of following it by 2 days.

    “A Palestinian state cannot be created by terrorism.”

    I wonder how the families of the dead at Dier Yassin feel about this statement. Terrorism worked for the Zionists. Any number of Israeli historians have made this clear. See, e.g., The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, by Ilan Pappe. Why can’t terrorism work for the Palestinians?

    Its funny seeing how all you people are going crazy on Yaakov Teitel.
    You have only a few Jews who were bad people.
    But when you have hundreds and hundreds of Palestinians murdering Israeli civilians on buses, shopping malls, disco’s, pizzeria’s and hotels, you say nothing.

    You also say nothing of the glorification of these Arab killers who murder Israeli civilians in the Palestinian media.
    The highest honor in the Palestinian media is to kill Jews.
    Your name will be named after soccer stadiums, schools and your poster will be plastered all over walls.

    One wonders why everyone on here is silent to the Arab glorification of massacres of Israeli civilians.
    So all you people prove your hypocrits.
    You condem 1 bad Jew, but say nothing of the hundreds of Palestinian terrorists wo set to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible for 72 virgins.

    Following the murderous terrorist attack on Kibbutz Metzer, the PLO cold-bloodedly stated on its official website, “We will continue to strike in any place, targeting their children as well.” Five innocent Israelis, including a mother and her two little boys, were butchered in that attack, all of them, Fatah said, “Zionist colonizers” killed in a “qualitative operation in the settlement of Metzer.”

    Here’s how the official Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Hayat al-Jadida headlined its coverage: “Five Israelis killed in an attack on the settlement Metzer.” The report continued, “A Palestinian infiltrated the settlement Metzer and opened fire on the settlers.” It is not well known that the Palestinian press frequently refers to towns in Israel, such as Holon and Kiryat Shmona, as “settlements.” Besides implying that all of Israel is an illegitimate colonial outpost, such references clearly are brought to justify the killings and distinguish them from terrorism.

    After the Tel Aviv massacre on January 12th 2003, where 2 Palestinian homicide bombers massacred 23 Israeli civilians. The PLO web site posted a statement — celebrating the attacks:
    “With faith in the calling of holy jihad,” it said, “two suicide attackers . . . succeeded this evening to infiltrate the Zionist roadblocks and to enter the heart of . . . Tel Aviv and carried out two consecutive suicide attacks… These suicide attacks caused a large number of fatalities and casualties in the center of the Zionist occupation of our land. We swear before our people that additional suicide operations will occur.”
    That is a view with which much of Arab opinion concurs. ArabicNews.com, for example, datelined its story on the Tel Aviv attack “Palestine-Israel,” and reported that the bombings had killed “23 Israeli settlers.”

    Massacre In Ashdod Was Preceded By Constant Palestinian Authority Incitement To Hatred Of Jews
    ZOA March 15, 2004

    NEW YORK – The Palestinian Arab massacre of eleven Israelis in Ashdod was preceded by constant incitement to hatred and violence against Jews in the official Palestinian Authority media, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) points out.

    ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said: “It is no mystery what inspires young Arabs to murder Jews. Their leaders, newspapers, and television tell them that killers of Jews are heroes; that all of Israel is ‘occupied Palestine'; that Israelis are ‘sons of apes and pigs’, terrorists, and abusers of Arab women; and that they ‘deserve death.’ The question is: why does the Bush administration continue to indirectly help sponsor this hatred, by giving the Palestinian Arabs $215-million each year?”

    In an interview with the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 14, 2000, Abdullah Al-Hourani, chairman of the Palestinian National Council Political Committee, responded to the question, “How do you read the future of the peace process?”

    Al-Hourani said: “Whether they return to negotiations or not, and whether they fulfill the agreements or not, the political plan is a temporary agreement, and the conflict remains eternal, will not be locked, and the agreements being talked about are regarding the current balance of power. As to the struggle, it will continue. It may pause at times, but in the final analysis, Palestine is ours from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River.”

    Oslo is just the first step in the destruction of Israel, Abd El Aziz Shahian, Palestinian Authority Minister of Supplies, said in an interview May 20, 2000, with Al Ayyam, an Arabic daily in the Palestinian territories.

    “The Palestinian people accepted the Oslo agreements as a first step and not as a permanent settlement, based on the premise that the war and struggle in the land is more efficient than a struggle from a distant land,” he said, referring to the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s base in Tunisia prior to the Oslo process.

    The Palestinian minister said his “people will continue the revolution until they achieve the goals of the ’65 revolution,” referring to the founding of the PLO and publication of the Palestinian charter that calls for the destruction of Israel through an armed struggle.
    Salim Alo’adia Abu Salam, supervisor of political affairs for the PA, told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 20, 2000, that “when we picked up the gun in ’65 and the modern Palestinian

    Yasser Arafat’s deputy, Othman Abu Arbiah, said “every Palestinian must know clearly and unequivocally that the independent Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as its capital is not the end of the road. The [rise of] the Palestinian state is a stage after which there will be another stage and that is the democratic state in all of Palestine [in place of Israel].”
    Abu Arbiah is Arafat’s aide for political guidance and national affairs and the director-general for national affairs, a senior position in the Palestinian national educational structure.

    Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Madi, a PA religious leader, said on Palestinian television, Aug. 3, 2001:
    “We will blow them up in Hadera, we will blow them up in Tel-Aviv and in Netanya. . . . We will fight against them and rule over them until the Jew will hide behind the trees and stones and the tree and stone will say: ‘Muslim! Servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him.’ We will enter Jerusalem as conquerors, and Jaffa as conquerors, and Haifa as conquerors and Ashkelon as conquerors. .

    Al-Aqsa terrorist Zakariya Zubeidi did an interview with Haaretz last April and admited Arafat ordered all the attacks against Israeli civilians.

    link to haaretz.com
    Look, it’s perfectly clear to me that we won’t be able to defeat Israel. My aim was for us, by means of the ‘resistance’ [code for terror attacks], to get a message out to the world. Back in Abu Amar's day [the nom de guerreof Yasser Arafat], we had a plan, there was a strategy, and we would carry his orders."

    In effect, are you saying what Amos Gilad and intelligence always said, that Arafat planned everything?

    "Right. Everything that was done in the intifada was done according to Arafat's instructions, but he didn't need to tell us the things explicitly. We understood his message."

      I wonder why some Palestinians hate you? Have you ever considered that it might be the ethnic cleansing and colonization, the starvation blockade, the endless checkpoints, pointless humiliations, deliberate destruction of civilian infrastructure, collective punishments, and ‘targeted’ assassinations? If you want people who are angry at being murdered, enserfed, and dispossessed to be less angry, maybe you should do something about the murder, enserfment, and dispossession.

      The Holocaust ended 64 years ago. Here and now, you colonial Zionists are not the victims. You are the aggressors. You have brought this upon yourselves, and it is your responsibility to change the social and political dynamic by ceasing your thieving and murdering. You (pl) could have a two-state solution and peace if you withdrew your colonies from the West Bank, but you really aren’t interested in either.

      Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

      You mock God with your endless chest-thumping about your innocent victimhood. The rest of us see the blood dripping from the hands of colonial Zionist terrorists just as clearly as we see it dripping from the hands of Palestinian terrorists.

    The Hamas advocates Killing Jews, simply for being Jews
    24 November 2002

    The Iz-Adin Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas, published
    (23 November 2002) a bulletin on their official website, advocating the murder of Jews simply for the fact of that they are Jews.

    The bulletin was published to commemerate the anniversary of the death of Imad Akal, a senior Hamas official, killed in the Gaza Strip on November 24, 1993. The bulletin quotes Akal as saying: “We will knock on the doors of Heaven with the skulls of the Jews”. The bulletin depicts an axe shattering the word “Al-Yahud” (Jews) and splintering the skulls of Jews. The words Al-Qassam are engraved on the axe.
    link to shopnetdaily.com French reporters came out with a video called The “Israel and the War of Images” is a French-produced video documentary that demonstrates, through exclusive footage of Palestinian leaders themselves — including Yasser Arafat — that their goal remains the eradication of the Jewish state.

    A must read, but Adam and Phillip dont want you to know about Shoshana Gottleib.

    link to israeltruth.blogspot.com
    One of the highlights of the evening at Hadassah was a presentation by Shoshana Gottleib, a young, religious mother of four, who told the audience how the van she was in was attacked by murderous machine-gun fire by terrorists, and how bending down to put orange peels in a plastic bag, she avoided the bullet that went through her headrest. As it was, Shoshana was critically injured, her spinal cord severed, paralyzing her for life from the chest down. One of the most interesting parts of Shoshana’s presentation was her revelation that the terrorists who opened fire on her were three policemen in Arafat’s Palestinian Authority, a fourth, who was Arafat’s personal bodyguard in Force 17, and a fifth who had been recruited with the promise of $500. One of the terrorists videotaped the attack on the van, and it was sent to Yasir Arafat.
