UN Security Council’s Complicity in Oppression and Murder
The following is a list of United Nations resolutions concerning Israel. As of 2013, the State of Israel had been condemned in 45 resolutions by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Since the UNHRC’s creation in 2006, it has resolved almost more resolutions condemning Israel alone than on issues for the rest of the world combined.
How is it logical and morally acceptable, that the democratic state of Israel, one of the smallest countries on Earth, from among 193 UN members, most of which are authoritarian, tyrannical, despotic and mostly unrepresentative dictatorship that egregiously violate all manners of Human Rights is condemned more than the combined 192 states put together?
I Googled UN resolutions addressing human rights violations of Hamas and the PA: NONE since 1993
Against Iran: None
Against China: One; and China sits on the Human Rights Council. The Fox protecting the Hens
Against Egypt: One
Against Russia: Two
I can list 56 other Muslim majority states that treat their females with utter contempt and total lack of Human Rights, with total lack of UN resolutions against them.
Therefore, the UN Human Rights Council is a rubber stamp of the very states that VIOLATE Human Rights.
Since I give credit where credit is due, I am enclosing this article in full, as published by an Israeli Arab (not a Jew,) to articulate these facts better than I can, especially since he is reporting from within the area.
‘Violations’ the UN Security Council Does Not Care About
by Khaled Abu Toameh
August 3, 2021 at 5:00 am
At the request of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the United Nations Security Council was again called to hold a session to discuss Israeli “violations” and “aggressions” against the Palestinians. The PA also demanded that the Security Council discuss the ongoing professed Israeli “siege” of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
Such Security Council sessions have become routine and almost always end up with statements denouncing Israel after hearing complaints from PA officials about Israel’s alleged “violations” and “aggressions.”
Yet the Security Council meeting, which was held last week, did not hear a word about human rights violations and aggressions committed by the PA in the West Bank and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian human rights abuses and the crackdown on political activists and journalists are ignored not only by the UN, but also by the Biden administration.

The Security Council did not hear about more than 75 Palestinian social media users, political activists and journalists who were arrested by the PA security forces in the West Bank just in the past few weeks.
The arrests came in response to widespread protests over the death of anti-corruption activist Nizar Banat, who was reportedly beaten to death by Palestinian security officers who raided his home in the city of Hebron.
The Security Council did not hear the testimonies of many of those who were arrested by the PA security forces or details of the various forms of torture to which they were subjected during their incarceration. Women were dragged by their hair, subjected to sexual harassment and beaten with batons by PA security officers. Some of the women and journalists complained that the officers who beat them also stole their mobile phones and cameras to prevent them from documenting protests against the death of Banat.
Banat, the anti-corruption activist and vocal critic of the PA leadership, was allegedly bludgeoned to death on June 24 by more than 20 Palestinian security officers.
More than a month has passed since the brutal killing of the man, but the Security Council has not found the time to address this grave incident. Why has the Security Council not held an emergency session until now to condemn the Palestinian leadership? Because Banat was killed by PA security officers, not Israeli soldiers.
On the eve of the Security Council meeting, the PA stepped up its crackdown on public freedoms, including that of the media, evidently as part of an attempt to silence its critics and prevent the world from learning about the repressive measures of the Palestinian security forces against their own people.
Palestinian security officers were sent to close down the offices of J-Media, a private Palestinian news agency in Ramallah owned by journalist Ala al-Rimawi. The official reason given for the closure was that the agency had failed to obtain a proper license from the Palestinian Ministry of Information. Rimawi, however, was arrested a few weeks ago by the PA security forces on suspicion of participating in protests over the killing of Banat and “insulting” senior Palestinian officials.
Also, on the eve of the Security Council meeting, PA President Mahmoud Abbas fired the director of the Palestinian National Library, Ehab Bessaiso, for posting comments on social media in which he criticized the killing of Banat.
Bessaiso, a former PA Minister of Culture, had written on his Facebook page about the slaying of the activist:
“Nothing justifies committing a crime. Killing a person is a crime, no matter how vague, ambiguous and emotional the picture seems. Difference of opinion is a space for interaction, discussion, freedom, anger, reflection, development and correction. Difference of opinion is not an epidemic, an emergency occasion, or a justification for bloodshed and incitement.”
The closure of the news agency and the dismissal of the Palestinian National Library director are obviously not of any interest to the Security Council or international human rights organizations.
Palestinian journalists living under the PA in the West Bank continue to complain that they are regularly targeted and intimidated by the Palestinian security forces. This charge, however, is obviously not considered by the Security Council or the UN General Assembly as a human rights violation or an aggression. Why? The perpetrators are Palestinians, not Israelis.
The Palestinian Coalition for Accountability and Integrity (AMAN) said it received information from PA public servants who spoke about threats and intimidation for expressing their views in public.
“Several public institutions have issued verbal instructions, according to which a number of personnel were threatened with dismissal from civil service,” AMAN said. “These irregularities affect any civil servant who comments on social media networks or participates in peaceful assemblies, denouncing the death of political and social activist Nizar Banat.”
The group said it sent a letter to PA Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh underscoring the importance of depoliticizing the civil service and making it neutral. “The right of every Palestinian to freedom of opinion and expression should be respected,” it wrote in the letter. “AMAN and civil society organisations are monitoring developments affecting public freedoms across Palestine, particularly following the assassination of political and social activist Nizar Banat.”
Needless to say, the warning by AMAN and other Palestinian human rights groups did not make it to the Security Council or the pages of Western mainstream newspapers.
The Security Council and the rest of the international community will continue to ignore not only what the PA is doing to its people in the West Bank, but also human rights violations committed by Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
Palestinian victims and human rights groups can continue to shout as much as they wish, but their voices and grievances will never reach the halls or corridors of the UN in New York.
The Security Council has undoubtedly not heard of the case of Emad Al-Tawil, a 27-year-old Palestinian who died on June 25 after being beaten by Hamas security officers. Tawil was a resident of Nuseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights (ICHR) has called on Hamas to investigate the circumstances of his death.
According to ICHR, on July 25, at approximately 4:00 pm, a Hamas police force estimated at about 40 members went to the house of Hosni Al-Tawil in Nuseirat Camp.
“About 15 members entered the house and began to search it completely, and the search continued for about an hour,” according to testimonies obtained by ICHR. “During the search, members of the Al-Tawil family came and tried to enter, but the police prevented them, and they assaulted Emad Abdul Aziz Al-Tawil by pushing him, beating him, and punching him with fists and sticks all over the body.”
About 30 minutes after the force left, Al-Tawil began to complain of pain in his chest and difficulty breathing. After he vomited, members of his family brought him to a nearby clinic, where he was pronounced dead.
“ICHR considers that the behavior of the policemen and the violation related to beating citizens in an unjustified manner, requires serious review to ensure the implementation and respect of the law, and the issuance of the necessary decisions for police personnel to respect human rights,” the group said.
The Security Council and international human rights organizations and journalists most likely did not hear about the case of Hassan Abu Zayed, a 27-year-old Palestinian from the Gaza Strip, who was shot dead by Hamas “border guards” on July 23. Abu Zayed was in a car with two of his friends when the Hamas militiamen opened fire at them on the pretext that they did not stop at a checkpoint.
ICHR has called for a comprehensive criminal investigation into the case. The group has also demanded that Hamas allow human rights activists to visit the deceased man’s friends, who have been detained by Hamas and who are the main witnesses in the incident.
Similarly, the Security Council was never called to hold an emergency session to discuss the case of Shadi Nofal, 41, who died in Hamas detention on July 5.
According to the ICHR’s documentation, Nofal’s health deteriorated and he was transferred to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, where he received a cardiac resuscitation before being admitted to the intensive care unit. Two days later, he was discharged and remained under observation. He was returned to prison and on the morning of July 5 was readmitted to the intensive care unit at Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The Palestinian human rights abuses and the crackdown on political activists and journalists are ignored not only by the UN, but also by the Biden administration.
Instead of pressuring Palestinian leaders to cease imprisoning, torturing and killing their people, the Biden administration is, absurdly, searching for ways to strengthen the PA leadership.
Apparently, in the eyes of the Biden administration, strengthening PA leaders means allowing Palestinian security officers to beat political activists to death, drag women by their hair on the streets of Ramallah, and imprison and intimidate journalists. The Security Council members, meanwhile, take their unjustified obsession with Israel to new heights as Palestinians are taken to prison or the graveyard at the hands of the PA and Hamas.

Japan’s Constitution & ME Security
Japan’s Constitution & ME Security
On 15th October 2013 in my talk with radio host Laurie Roth, I suggested that the best way to counter North Korea’s nuclear threats was to declare publicly, that unless N Korea stops its march to a nuclear power, Japan will rescind the Constitution imposed upon it by the victors after WWII, NOT allowing them to arm themselves once again.
Had any of these governments made such a threat, just the threat alone, China would not have allowed the despots of N Korea to go nuclear because they would fear Japan’s industrial and technological might – after all, Japan has operational nuclear reactors- more than those of N Korea.
Unfortunately, none of their leaders had the foresight, wisdom and or the backbone to do so.
Mr Shinzo Abe was on this path – not publicly declaring going nuclear, just for Japan to be able to go on the offensive if and when required – before he was assassinated.
His party will hopefully continue on this path – after recently winning a majority in parliament – but must publicly increase the heat by declaring to go nuclear.
The Liberal Democrats and their coalition partners gained enough seats in Sunday’s election to form a crucial two-thirds supermajority. They can now amend a clause in the Constitution, imposed by post war American occupiers, that renounces war.
This crucial change will allow Japan to become a military power, capable of global leadership.
South Korea should do exactly the same because it is unconscionable and impractical to believe, that the USA – or any other state, when conflict gets imminent – would go to nuclear war in their defence, exposing American civilians to nuclear holocaust.
To have been effective, these declarations should have been made twenty years ago. This threat would be meaningless today because realistically speaking, both nations should go nuclear since N Korea is already a nuclear power. This will introduce the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) to the Pacific region.
Biden’s dysfunctional legacy is leading to a great number of states arming themselves to the hilt and many more attempting to go nuclear.
No sovereign nation should ever depend for its survival at the mercy of another state.
As I suggested in my previous article of a Pacific-Atlantic Alliance,
In modern times, only a NATO type of mutual defence alliance would make sense because the burden of war would be shared by several capable nations, not just one, no matter how powerful.
Such a project is being formulated in the Middle East by all the states threatened by the terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime in Tehran. The most outstanding facet of this alliance would be the mutual military support between Muslim Arabs and Israel; impossible to even imagine, only two years ago.
As Biden heads to the Middle East, he and his State Department will not be meeting the leaders of supplicant states but on the contrary, with leaders who are forging – without Biden’s help, what once were unthinkable coalitions – by Real Politik caused by an undependable and unpredictable Biden’s USA.
While Biden, with total lack of wisdom and common sense, keeps talking to the terrorist Iranians regarding a nuclear deal – that not a single Sunni nation as well as Israel- approves of and adding insult to injury, treating the Palestinian terrorists as equal democrats.
In the meantime, the Arabs are forsaking the so-called ‘palestinians’ because they have come to the conclusion after 70 years, that the totally corrupt ‘palestinians’ have actually become a greater danger to their regimes than Israel ever was.
Even the most Islamic state of Saudi Arabia is also realizing that Israel is actually a more dependable ally than Biden’s USA. Who would have imagined even a year ago that Biden would be able to fly directly from Ben Gurion in Israel to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia?
This Biden trip would most probably be the most important of his presidency so far, if only he treats his hosts as equals and not lecture them.
He must NOT raise the subject of human rights in Arabia while totally ignoring the same in Iran and the ‘palestinian’ territories.
The Saudis – especially Mohammed bin Salman – is in no mood to be lectured to while he is doing his utmost to bring his people into the 21st century against the most vocal and dangerous Muslim clerics imaginable.
Who Killed Shirin
Who Killed Shirin?
Most of the Western news reporters have the morals of a pimp and the conscience of a mass murderer. As outrageous as this may sound to some politically correct, undereducated and ill-informed readers, the facts and reality bear me out completely.
While the world is rightly mesmerised by the Ukraine war events, other very important ones are occurring that are very relevant and need our attention.
From May 15th till 5th June 1967, most of the Western news media were writing obituaries regarding the demise of Israel and shedding tons of crocodile tears about the imminent death of Israelis.
They truly believed the Arab propaganda that they (Arabs) were going to finally erase Israel off the face of the Earth and any surviving Jews would be returned to their European countries of origin (while ignoring 950,000 Jewish refugees, from Arab and Muslim countries).
As always with the absolute majority of Western reporters, they rarely dedicate time to investigate, study and analyse worldwide events because they are mentally too lazy and depend on what they call ‘sources’ and ‘informants’ most of whom are very well trained Arab and Muslim propagandists and or apologists for Islam.
After the stunning victory achieved by Israel in the Six Days War of 1967, the Western media’s short lived honeymoon with Israel came to an abrupt end because Israel turned out to be a much more powerful military machine than they (the media) had ever anticipated.
Israelis are not anymore the perceived underdog. All of a sudden, the so called Palestinians – the very aggressors who wanted to exterminate the Israelis – have become the subject of their attention and sympathy.
These so called ‘reporters’ became the mouthpiece and propaganda arms of the Arab and Muslim terror organizations such as Hamas of Gaza, Hezbollah of Lebanon, al Shabab of Somalia, Boko Haram of Nigeria, Al Jazeera of Qatar and dozens of others all over the Arab and Muslim worlds.
Although there are many very prominent Western news people embedded in Arab and Muslim countries, extremely few of them ever read – let alone studied Muhammad’s Quran, his Sunna or the bloody history of Arab and Islamic imperialism – to comprehend the mentality of the creatures of the sea they are living in.
Because of their extreme lack of knowledge and laziness, they invariably fall for the lies, deception and deliberate contortions of all truths to suit the Arab and Muslim agenda of demonising and de humanizing both Israelis and Jews.
The Western media has become the foremost accomplice of Arab and Muslim propaganda, by regurgitating without ever checking their sources of ‘information’. They are complicit in knowingly spreading Jew and Israel hatred.
Let me share with you – as always – the facts that are available profusely for anyone who is fair minded:
1. Every single Islamic terror organization uses its own civilians as a shield to protect the terrorists amongst them. Hamas of Gaza and Hezbollah of Lebanon have been doing so for the last 15 to 30 years respectively.
2. They put missiles, artillery, ammunition and terror tunnels near or in hospitals, mosques, schools, high rise buildings and civilian areas so that when Israelis retaliate, there would be ‘civilian’ Muslims dead to blame Israel of war crimes. The news media knows this but ignores it.
3. There are hundreds of videos on You Tube, taken by Arabs or Muslims proving my points. Even allegedly young men ‘murdered’ by Israelis, all of a sudden get up and run, very much alive.
4. Not a single media in the West ever points out that billions of world travellers have to endure search humiliations and delays at airports because of ‘palestinian’ and Muslim terrorists; plus, the hundreds of billions of dollars of increased costs of travelling to finance the security apparatus and regime.
5. Although every single Muslim terrorist group or individual quotes verbatim, verses from Muhammad’s Quran – justifying their deeds of mass murder- the Western media deliberately tries to de-couple Islamic terrorism from Islamic scripture as if the two are not linked at all.
6. Anyone who reads even Eight suras (chapters) from Muhammad’s Quran of 114 chapters – chapters 2 to 9 – one must come to the only possible conclusion, that these acts of terror against none Muslims/Kuffar/Infidels or against different sects of Islam, are justified by Allah’s Sharia, that no true Muslim can ever deviate from.
7. Shirin Abu Akleh was the Christian al Jazeera reporter in the Holy Land for the last 25 years reporting on the Arab Israeli conflict. She was killed during an Israeli raid on suspected terrorists in Jenin, 11th May 2022.
8. As always, the Muslims have their version of events and the Israelis have theirs. During the Gaza Israel war of 2021 when over 4000 rockets were fired by Hamas against Israeli civilian targets (a war crimes act), they (Hamas) denied they were hiding their rockets and missiles in and among civilian areas in Gaza although, hundreds of videos taken in Gaza during the conflict and one of al Jazeera’s own reporters was telling the world that rockets were being fired from under her building.
9. After Shirin’s death, why did the Palestinians refuse to have an autopsy to determine type of bullet, angle of penetration etc to be investigated? If they have nothing to hide, after any Crime Scene Investigation, such autopsies are a must to determine cause and effect.
10. As always, the Muslims are accusing Israel of deliberately killing the reporter. Why would Israel murder such an important reporter in public and cause enormous PR and political damage to her image? Why ignore the very possibility that the terrorists might have killed her by mistake?
11.There are videos of Muslims shooting indiscriminately in the narrow corridors of Jenin at whom? Why were some of the Muslims shouting in Arabic that an Israeli soldier is down when there was none?
12.As always also, not a single Western reporter is double checking or investigating these events for two reasons: a) such a reporter would be murdered if he/she discovered the truth b) these ‘reporters’ are the mouth piece of the ones who pay their salaries. Not one of them can use his/her mind independently.
13.After all, not a single Muslim reporter under either Hamas or the Palestinian Authority have any freedom to report truthfully and those who did suffered either severe physical punishment or death. The records are available for those who want to know.
The levels of hypocrisy, duplicity, mendacity and immorality exhibited by most of the Western media and the UN – always condemning Israel but never the perpetrators of terror and subjugation or the oppressors – are breath taking especially when the facts are crystal clear but are deliberately – with malice aforethought – completely ignored.
Birds of a Feather: Democrats & Islam
No one in the American and European media and academia has so far pointed out the outstanding operational and propagandistic similarities between Democrats and Islam.
Both are Pathological Liars and exhibit obscene degrees of Hypocrisy, Malevolence, Duplicity, Mendacity, Treachery, and Divisiveness.
Both are masters of Projective Identification, whereby they accuse their victims of their own nastiness to justify their dastardly deeds.
Both are totalitarian and hate freedoms of thought and speech. Democrats are threatening members of the Supreme Court while Muslims slaughter anyone – Muslim or Kafir – who reveals the facts about Sharia or jokes about Muhammad.
Both are intolerant of free-thinking that leads to defiance of intolerable demands by the state; witness how the Taliban are controlling their females through physical violence while Brown Shirts of the Democrat party – Antifa and Black Lives Matter – are burning and looting cities with impunity.
Both use the news media as their own propaganda arm to mislead, misinform and deceive the public. Watching or reading the news media in the USA, such as CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, etc., prove my points perfectly.
Both would either shout down their opponents or shoot them down as the Muslims do all over the world against Infidels, Kuffar, Non-Muslims, or how leftists suppress all debates in academia by using verbal or physical violence against those who disagree with them.
Both subdivide the population into different groups: racial, ethnic, religious, or political to have them fight each other so that they are in total control.
Both demand that the populace should be subservient to the State or leadership. Listen to Jen Psaki of the White House or any Imam (Muslim cleric) on the planet.
Both are grandmasters at contorting facts, reality, and history to suit their agenda.
Both rarely, if ever, admit fault nor apologize for their misdeeds.
Just listen to Biden gloating that his administration is very successful, but Americans are too stupid to comprehend how great he is. Is Biden not the perfect example? All that is going wrong under his watch – although Democrats are the majority in the House and Senate and the Presidency – Joe Biden blames citizen Trump, Putin, or any ‘other’ entity but NOT himself.
Let me share with you an important recent event that was totally ignored by almost all the mainstream Western media, academia, and clergy.
To celebrate the most momentous event in the life of their mentor Muhammad called “Laylat al Qadar” or “Night of Power” on the 24th of April 2022, the most influential Sunni leader in the world, Grand Imam Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayebof the Azhar University (Islamic Studies), gave a speech to Egyptian President al-Sisi and all the top leaders of Egypt.
According to Islamic tradition, “Laylat al Qadar” was the night when Muhammad allegedly received his first Quran revelation.
Al-Qadar 96.1: “Read, in the name of your Lord Who created— created humans from a clinging clot. Read! And your Lord is the most generous, who taught by the pen— taught humanity what they knew not…”
Al Tayeb, of course, praised Islam so much that he shattered the highest glass ceiling conceivable by literally contorting history and unhinging reality.
For instance, among the fantastic interpretations of what he claimed to be true are the following:
“Only a few years after the death of Muhammad, the Islamic conquests caused the two most powerful empires that controlled lands in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and North Africa to become Islamic lands till this very day.”
He was referring to the Byzantine Christian (Eastern Roman) and the Sassanid Persian (Zoroastrian) Empires that collapsed under the onslaught of the Arabian hordes in the 7th century.
All the above is true, but with their usual rendition of historical events, Muslims feel free to tell their version – not based on either facts or reality – and actually believe their own myths. So he continued:
“These [Islamic] conquests were not conquests of colonization that rely on the methods of plunder, oppression, control, and the policies of domination and dependency, that leave nations in ruin”
He went on to contrast and condemn conquests of colonization that are about oppression and plunder — a swipe at Europe’s historical colonization of the Middle East — while very conveniently ignoring the reality that Arab and Islamic imperialism lasted – and continues today, as he admitted – for the last 1400 years while European imperialism lasted 150 years or less.
Another item missing in his asinine declarations is the fact that European Imperialism brought to the subject peoples the ideas of parliamentary rule, democracy, electricity, education, trains, planes, hospitals, and modern medicine plus more, while Arab and Islamic imperialism invariably contributed to the demise of the civilizations they conquered.
His myth-making continued:
“The Islamic conquests were not like this— dominating peoples and controlling them with the arrogance of force and weapons; rather, they led to a new avalanche of life—full of knowledge, justice, freedom, and equality—which flowed in the veins of those [once] powerless people”
Let us examine his statements above, based entirely on history as written by Muslims and other eyewitnesses to the events that transpired.
The Arab historians have fully detailed Arab imperialism as described in their own books of Futuh (Openings/ Conquests) and Al-Waqidi’s Kitab al-Maghazi (Book of Invasions).
To start with, for those who are knowledgeable of Islamic history, his version is so contorted and convoluted that he turned it beneath contempt.
It is extremely difficult to emphasize how utterly bizarre, such false claims really are. The conquests of all the Christian lands mentioned by al Tayeb – from Syria in the east to Morocco in the west – as well as those Christian lands of later Islamic conquests in Spain, France, the Mediterranean islands, Asia Minor, the Balkans, etc. were associated with bloodshed, massacres, terror, rape, enslavement, plunder, and the oppression of the conquered peoples and the exploitation of their resources on a colossal scale.
Even more absurd is al Tayeb’s claim that the Christian and Zoroastrian peoples living under the Eastern Roman and Sassanian empires were happy to be “liberated” by the sword of Islam and that — seeing that Islam was a religion of “knowledge, justice, freedom, and equality” — they eagerly responded by converting in droves.
Denying facts and reality is the default position of every Muslim on the planet. This may sound – to Quran ignorant and politically correct minds – like tarnishing 1,500,000,000 Muslims with one brush when in fact, it is the truth since Allah’s Sharia demands that every Muslim should not only be a Jihadi (fighter of infidels/kuffar/none Muslims) but also that the single most important objective in the life of every Muslim is to bring about the time when every single human being on Earth either converts to Islam, be subject to Allah’s Sharia or is exterminated.
Furthermore, Ahl-al-Kitab (People of the Book – like Christians and Jews who had revelations before Islam – can only exist as Dhimmis (protected people) if and when they pay the Jizya (the onerous penalty for not converting to Islam) in humiliation and degradation.
Al Tauba 9.29 “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth (Islam), even those who have been given the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the (Jizya) tax in acknowledgment of superiority (of Islam) and they are in a state of humiliation”
He totally ignored the “Charter of Umar” that treats all subjugated peoples with the most vile rules to humiliate, degrade and insult the conquered peoples in their own lands by the Arab Imperialists.
In fact, the only short instances in 1400 years of Arab and Islamic imperialism everywhere in the world – when subjugated people were relatively free – were under tolerant non-Sharia-compliant Muslim leaders.
He spoke about Arab and Islamic civilizations while no historian can ever point out that the nomadic Arab hordes that spread like locusts on unsuspecting humanity had any vestiges of a civilization nor any knowledge worthy of giving to the already long term civilized peoples they conquered.
After all, it was the Arabs and their converts to Islam who used the expertise, artistry, and knowledge of the subjugated peoples to proclaim Islam’s ‘civilization.’
As is well known, the supposedly “liberated” peoples — the ones to survive the initial shocking massacres and enslavements — who preferred to remain, Christian, Zoroastrian, or Jewish could do so only by becoming dhimmis – second-class citizens – who had to make regular tribute (Jizya) payments and adhere to a host of humiliating social strictures as detailed in the “Charter of Omar.” The desire not to be financially fleeced or treated inferiorly — or sporadically persecuted, as many dhimmis were, depending on whether the next ruler was “radical” or not — is what caused so many hundreds of millions of non-Muslims to convert to Islam over the centuries.
This was the only way they could experience “justice, freedom, or equality” — at least of a sort.
Even more outrageous are al-Tayeb’s depictions that the Muslim conquests were somehow more virtuous than European colonization of the Middle East. The historical record is perfectly clear that while Jihads culminated in slavery, depopulation, and devastation, it was European colonialists who abolished slavery and introduced their Muslim subjects to the boons of modernity, from scientific and medicinal advances to the radical concepts of democracy and religious freedom.
The few examples above regarding al-Tayeb are mirror images of Democrats claiming they were the party of freedom for African Americans when in fact, it was the Republicans who championed this while Democrats were the party of the KKK.
Neither Democrats nor Muslims are ever concerned about perverting and contorting facts and history because they succeed with their demonic agenda by propagating the Big Lie endlessly to mostly ill-informed humanity and get away with it.
No matter how anyone addresses this subject, one cannot escape the realization that Democrats and Muslims have uncannily almost identical characteristics.
