Sharon as young man

Photo above is of the young Sharon. Posted by “Israeli apartheid” on Facebook, a remembrance by Israeli satirist and columnist (Haaretz) Kobi Niv:

[Ariel Sharon memories]

I was a sergeant first class, approaching the end of my military service, as a guide in a mortar officers course. In a series of vehicle navigation, we were driving on a road between Nablus and Tubas or something. An Arab vendor passed by with ice cream, homey stuff, in a jug, like the milk of the old days. The trainees asked that we stop and buy ice cream from him, and I yielded. Suddenly a military Lark car pulled up, and the the head of a general protruded from the passenger seat, the head of the [IDF] Training Department, Ariel Sharon. He asked who was the commander, and I had to report to him, fearing and trembling. Then he said to me the following sentence, with a deep and wide political vision (it’s not for nothing that he later became defense minister and prime minister). And this was etched (as you can see – forever) in my mind: “You buy from Arabs. For this they piss on you.” He took my details and drove away, and I was sure I was going to jail, but it turned out there was no law prohibiting purchasing from Arabs, which of course was immediately amended, but I was spared. And here I am, to tell all about it. A personal testimony, and all is real and so it was.

      I’m sure someone must have said something similar in German on Kristallnacht.

      “Jews protect Palestinians in harvest of hate”, By Donald Macintyre in Awarta, West Bank, The Independent (U.K.), 10/10/08
      Israelis cross religious divide to shelter olive farmers from settlers’ attacks

      [EXCERPTS] . . . Born in Tel Aviv, Ms Siew served in the army, took a university degree, then a teacher’s diploma. Thirty-six years ago, she took the tough decision to emigrate to London, telling her parents: “I won’t come back until there’s peace.” Ms Siew, who is now 64, remains an Israeli citizen but now lives with her British husband in Hebden Bridge. She has kept to her word, except that each autumn she comes back to stay in her hometown with her relatives and spends each day of the two-month harvest season picking olives on Palestinian farmland in the West Bank.
      And Ms Siew does that for a purpose. Up on the ridge above us, you can see the red roofs of Itamar, a notably hard-line Jewish settlement [5 kilometers southeast of Nablus], and she is here to help protect the Palestinian farmers from the threat of settler violence which has so often scarred the olive harvests. . .
      . . . Last year, she was in a group in the South Hebron Hills confronted by settlers who fired shots from a pistol and an M16 assault rifle, despite the presence of the army and police. “Then one of the soldiers said, ‘Look, one of them is coming down with a jug of water for you’. The settler emptied the jug over me. It was full of human shit.” . . .

    Thanks Phil,

    This story reminds me, when I was a young soldier in the IDF, my unit was in Jaffa near Abulafia Palestinian bakery. Several of us bought Cheese Sambusak and Ka’eks. then the commander came and asked me “How is the Sambusak?”. “Excellent” I told him. So he bought one. And here I am, to tell all about it. A personal testimony, and all is real and so it was.

      I once met a white South African during the Apartheid regime, and he didn’t say anything racist. Not once.

      True story.

    Precious Sharon quotes… Our great leader… The Man… 100% Testosterone:

    “I vow that if I was just an Israeli civilian and I met a Palestinian I would burn him and I would make him suffer before killing him. With one hit I’ve killed 750 Palestinians (in Rafah in 1956). I wanted to encourage my soldiers by raping Arabic girls as the Palestinian women is a slave for Jews, and we do whatever we want to her and nobody tells us what we shall do but we tell others what they shall do.” Ariel Sharon, In an interview with General Ouze Merham, 1956.

    “I don’t know something called International Principles. I vow that I’ll burn every Palestinian child (that) will be born in this area. The Palestinian woman and child is more dangerous than the man, because the Palestinian childs existence infers that generations will go on, but the man causes limited danger.” Ariel Sharon, In an
    interview with General Ouze Merham, 1956.

    “I don’t mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg Trial and then jail me for life. Hang me if you want, as a war criminal. What you don’t understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not finished yet, far from it.” Ariel Sharon to Amos Oz, editor of Davar, Dec. 17, 1982

    “The Oslo agreement is very important for the Palestinians since it is the only official agreed-upon document they got. We have another document, a much older one … the Bible.” Ariel Sharon, speaking at a Washington symposium, 8 May 1998

    “Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours… Everything we don’t grab will go to them.” Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.

    “Jordan is a part from Eretz Israel in history.” Ariel Sharon, When he became the Prime minister, 2000

    “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that… I w
    ant to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

    1982:”Even if you’ll prove to me by mathematical means that the present war in Lebanon is a dirty immoral war, I don’t care. Moreover, even if you will prove to me that we have not achieved and will not achieve any of our aims in Lebanon, that we will neither create a friendly regime in Lebanon nor destroy the Syrians or even the PLO, even then I don’t care. It was still worth it. Even if Galilee is shelled again by Katyushas in a year’s time, I don’t really care. We shall start another war, kill and destroy more and more, until they will have had enough. And do you know why it is all worth it? Because it seems that this war has made us more unpopular among the so-called civilised world.”

    “The destruction of Eyn Hilwe (and it’s a pity we did not wipe out that hornet’s nest completely!), the healthy bombardment of Beirut and that tiny massacre (can you call 500 Arabs a massacre?) in their camps which we should have committed with our own delicate hands rather than let the Phalangists do it, all these good deeds finally killed the bullshit talk about a unique people and of being a light upon the nations. No more uniqueness and no more sweetness and light. Good riddance.”

    “Let me tell me [sic] what is the most important thing, the sweetest fruit of the war in Lebanon: It is that now they don’t just hate Israel. Thanks to us, they now also hate all those Feinschmecker Jews in Paris, London, New York, Frankfurt and Montreal, in all their holes. At last they hate all these nice Yids, who say they are different from us, that they are not Israeli thugs, that they are different Jews, clean and decent. Soon their palaces will be smeared with the slogan: Yids, go to Palestine! And you know what? They will go to Palestine because they will have no other choice! All this is a bonus we received from the Lebanese war. Tell me, wasn’t it worth it?”

    “Soon we will hit on good times. The Jews will start arriving, the Israelis will stop emigrating and those who already emigrated will return. The gentiles have always felt sick of the Yids and their conscience, and now the Yids will have only one option: to come home, all of them, fast, to install thick steel doors, to build a strong fence, to have submachine guns positioned at every corner of their fence here and to fight like devils against anyone who dares to make a sound in this region. And if anyone even raises his hand against us we’ll take away half his land and burn the other half, including the oil. We might use nuclear arms. We’ll go on until he no longer feels like it…”

    “I only know one thing for sure: as long as you are fighting for your life all is permitted, even to drive out all the Arabs from the West Bank, everything.”
    “Even today I am willing to volunteer to do the dirty work for Israel, to kill as many A
    Arabs as necessary, to deport them, to expel and burn them, to have everyone hate us, to pull the rug from underneath the feet of the Diaspora Jews, so that they will be forced to run to us crying. Even if it means blowing up one or two synagogues here and there, I don’t care.”

    “I am glad that this small war in Lebanon frightened the Yids. Let them be afraid, let them suffer. They should hurry home before it gets really dark. So I am an anti-Semite? Fine. ” “And you can write that I am disgrace to humanity, I don’t mind, on the contrary. Let’s make a deal: I will do all I can to expel the Arabs from here, I will do all I can to increase anti-Semitism, and you will write poems and essays about the misery of the Arabs and be prepared to absorb the Yids I will force to flee to this country and teach them to be a light unto the gentiles. How about it?”

    “Sharon was a killer obsessed with hatred of Palestinians. I had promised Arafat that his people would not get any harm. Sharon, however, ignored this commitment entirely. Sharon’s word is worth nil.” Ambassador Philip Habib, President Ronald Reagan’s Special Middle East Envoy in 1982.

      @Citizen – Are the hasbaratchiks listening?
      Can you also provide a ref for the last quote but one, “over his invasion of Lebanon, 1982”, so we can retrieve that too for future use?

      Well, there you go…..this is the zionism of Israel….fully revealed.
      Is zionism worth its cost to others?….Nope. If it was a benign or just cause innocent others wouldnt have to suffer for it.
      You cant make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
