Unity and Cohesion vis a vis Disparity and Divisiveness.



What has escaped the comprehension of almost the entirety of the American leaders: Politicians, Academics, Clergy, Media, Military and Intelligence was and still is a very simple fact that while the Western so called democracies have become un-Godly and Unpatriotic, the Muslims on the other hand are almost totally religious, united in their hatred and contempt for Kuffar/ Infidels/ Non-Muslims and extremely patriotic and hence regimented and cohesive.

Irrespective of the fact that Muslim nations in general, are among the Least Productive, Inventive and Creative in history, they nonetheless perceive themselves as superior to all ‘other’ human beings because they have Allah on their side. They are not in a hurry; time is their friend but the worst enemy of Kuffar/ non-Muslims.

While the Western elites have fragmented and subdivided their own populations both in the USA and Western Europe to such an obscene degree that they are more concerned of alleged ‘domestic terrorists’ than the real ones, shows how depraved the current situation has become.

For White elites to condemn their own Whiteness and race is an indication of the total moral and rational collapse that no amount of military power can defend its existence. In contrast, the rag tag Taliban are totally united in their love of Allah and full submission to Sharia; while the mosques in every country in the West are not only full every Friday but they overflow in the streets and parks of Europe and America, most churches and synagogues in both continents barely fill 15% of the pews.

The historical record proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that in every single great empire, the people became morally and spiritually lax if not hedonistic or nihilistic eventually got soft, luxurious, less patriotic and less cohesive and more divided thus allowing themselves to be overrun by uncivilized but unified barbaric tribes who hunger for plunder and conquest against these morally, socially and militarily weakened and invariably corrupt civilizations.

The most successful such barbarians were the Visigoths, Arabs and Mongols, just to name a few. They had remarkable ‘esprit de corps’ and a very strong sense of tribal loyalty that are fundamental to cohesion and unity, for winning battles.

All of them eventually fell to the same process of disintegration that was suffered by the very civilizations and or countries they had subjugated. The cycle goes on because human nature does not change.

The USA lost Vietnam and Afghanistan NOT because her military was not brave; not at all. They lost because their political leaders and the media were and still are clueless and naïve when they deal with their enemies; especially Muslims.

For some reason, they are not willing to study their enemy’s beliefs and traditions so that they can navigate the political, religious and social minefields littering the battlefield.

By not knowing their enemies, they must fail as Sun Tzu stipulated in his monumental ‘Art of War’.

Had they even bothered to read Muhammad’s Quran especially the first 9 chapters of 1- 9; they would have known that it is impossible to turn Sharia to a Western constitution or laws, because Sharia is the nemesis of every article of freedom known to mankind and especially Democracy.

How can Sharia reconcile human rights when almost every other sentence of importance in Muhammad’s Quran and Sunna (traditions about Muhammad) is the exact opposite of every law in the Judeo-Christian traditions?

How can Muslims have a constitution that stipulates and actively implements female rights, when Muhammad’s Quran and Sunna, consider the females of the human species not only inferior to men, but also purveyors of indecency if any part of their body can be seen by male Muslims?

This is exactly why almost 750,000,000 Muslim females are treated just one little step higher up the ladder of evolution than domestic animals.

The fact that the Taliban have declared themselves “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” dooms all tens of millions of Afghanis to the dark ages of Muhammad’s 7th century Arabia, under the Satanic Allah’s Sharia.; this is a retrograde movement of 1400 years, backwards. Islam and Muslims hark back to the 7th century while most of the other countries on Earth are embracing the 21st and looking forward to the 22nd century.

Contrary to all the hogwash emanating from the so called Muslim ‘scholars’ of Islam and or their brainwashed or bought off apologists, it is utterly impossible for any Sharia compliant Muslim (such as Ilhan Omar and Linda Sarsour) to ever be BOTH Good Sharia compliant Muslims as well as Loyal American citizens whom they call Kuffar/ Infidels.

Therefore, it is also impossible for any Muslim to integrate and or assimilate among non –Muslims for exactly the same reason: their Demon god Allah forbids them from doing so.

These impossible items are not based upon my own perceptions but exclusively upon the Islamic scriptures themselves, hence they are not subject to misrepresentation or misinterpretation, especially since every imam or Muslim leader subscribes to, and abides by these verses to the letter.

The ‘writing on the wall’ is crystal clear that Islam will take over Europe and subjugate Christians in less than thirty years at their overwhelming current rate of invasion and reproduction.

When Europe falls, the USA will not be far behind.

I am not trying to scare anyone, because the facts and reality on the ground support what I am projecting.

Christians have to wake up immediately before it is too late and matters become irreversible. Your governments and politicians are colluding with your mortal enemies and you cannot expect them to protect you.

Are you not witnessing daily how your Biden and his top military leaders cannot or will not save all Americans behind Taliban lines which represents the most incredible dereliction of duty imaginable that is actually an act of treason, for which the guilty should pay, no matter who they may be; nor are they even willing to protect you (Americans) from being invaded on your southern border by – among decent people – diseased people, sex and drug traffickers, criminals and terrorists who are being flown all over the USA spreading their illnesses and criminality with them.

It is now time for a popular uprising by ‘We the People’ – who have suffered enough from political tyrants in the last eight miserable months of Biden and his clueless Administration – in every state of the Union, by legally Armed Americans to save their Republic from further destruction. If only 3% of Americans would do so, they can change the course of history.

Allahu Akbar: Islam’s Terror Verse





Allahu Akbar: Islam’s Terror Verse

Hundreds of millions of people around the world have heard the Mantra ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’ being chanted in a Blood Curdling manner by the followers of Muhammad before suicide bombings, plane hijackings, beheadings, burning of churches or temples, but actually have no idea of its meaning nor of its true implications.

What is the real background of this mantra?

This article is for the ordinary men and women of the world, who are deliberately kept ignorant regarding the true agenda of Islam and Muslims.

‘Allahu Akbar’ is made up of two words: Allah, which was (and is) the name of the supreme rock god of the pagan Quraysh (Muhammad’s tribe) in the Arabian Peninsula, centuries before Muhammad (starting in 610AD) very cleverly and conveniently metamorphosed him into the God of the Bible; and Akbar, which in Arabic can mean Bigger, Larger, Superior, Older or Senior. This is contrary to the assertions by mostly Arabic ignorant speaking people that it means Greatest because in Arabic, Great is Atheem, Greater is A’atham and Greatest is Al A’atham.

For example, Great Britain is called “Baritania al Uthma”, not “Baritania al Kubra”.

‘Allahu Akbar’ is also the cry of Glorification called (Takbir); that is the glorification of Allah, thus asserting that Allah is more powerful than any other entity or god.

Contrary to the general perception inculcated into the minds of unlearned people in the Arabic of the Quran by the followers of Muhammad, this cry was not invented by Muhammad, because it was uttered by the Pagan Arabs (not as a Terror Verse before slaughtering other humans as transformed by Muhammad and Islam) long before Muhammad and his Quran appeared on the scene and used it.

While it is true that Takbir is part and parcel of Islamic belief, pronounced daily by every Muslim during prayers, as an expression of happiness, gratitude, etc., Muslims deliberately hide from their Quran and Hadiths (traditions about their mentor Muhammad) ignorant audience, that Takbir has to be declared by every Muslim terrorist just before committing acts of horror or aggression – particularly against unsuspecting and defenceless none Muslims/ Kuffar civilians – with the same lack of mercy or compassion while murdering members of opposite sects of Islam.

By shouting “Allahu Akbar”, the Muslim terrorist is confirming his allegiance to, and faith in Allah, knowing full well, that he is going to die “Fi Sabil Allah”, for the “Cause of Allah”, so that he will be granted Allah’s eternal sexual and sensual pleasures in the after-life, in Muhammad’s Whorehouse version of Paradise.

Rational persons may laugh, and cannot believe such drivel emanating from a supposed divinely revealed religion, and an allegedly Compassionate and Merciful Allah, but the subjects of Islamic faith are not guided by logic, but completely by indoctrinated belief, based on the dogma of Sharia, which cannot ever be a subject of debate or alteration in any way shape or form, since according to Muslims, their scripture is divinely revealed, therefore perfect.

In Ibn Ishaq’s ‘Sirat Rasool^Allah’ or Muhammad’s Biography; Pages 62-63 titled the “Digging of Zamzam” tells us inter alia:

“While Abdul Muttalib was sleeping in the Hijr, he was ordered in a vision to dig Zamzam (a well in Mecca)… When the exact spot had been indicated to him, he took a pick axe…and began to dig.

When the top of the well appeared, he cried ‘Allahu Akbar’ (as an exclamation of joy and gratitude); thus the pagan Quraysh knew that he had obtained his objective…”

I would like at this moment, to bring to the attention of our readers, the following extremely important and relevant points that no Muslim would ever reveal to them:

1 That Allah, was only the name of the supreme god of the Pagan Quraysh (the tribe of Muhammad), who sired three daughters; Al Lat, Al Uzza & Al Manat. In Arabic, Allah does not mean god because God is called Ilah.

Muslims declare their faith by reciting the following: “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”; therefore, the name of their god is Allah.

2 Allahu Akbar was recited by the Pagan Quraysh centuries before Muhammad. It was used to indicate that the god Allah of the Ka’ba was bigger or more powerful than all the other 360 gods and goddesses among the pantheon of their idols.

3 No matter how many times Muslims try to convince themselves and others, that Allah is the same as the God of the Bible, every verse in Muhammad’s Quran that deals with Biblical characters or events, proves beyond a shadow or even a reasonable doubt, that this is not only not true, but also not possible, because each one of these verses, completely contradicts the original versions in the Bible.

This pagan tradition too – like most of those attributed to Islam – was plagiarised, plundered, pirated and or perverted while being absorbed , subsumed and ‘Islamized’ by Muhammad into his new Cult Belief System (the Cult of Muhammad/Islam) and was constantly used as a terrorising battle cry by him and his later followers (starting in 628AD at the battle of Khayber).

In fact, this expression is also used when animals – as well as humans – are being slaughtered by Muslims.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.472 Narrated by Anas

The Prophet offered as sacrifices, two horned rams, black and white in colour. He slaughtered them with his own hands and mentioned Allah’s Name over them and said Takbir (Allahu Akbar) and put his foot on their sides.

A Battle Cry is a yell or chant taken up in battle, usually by members of the same military unit. These cries can serve many purposes, including inspiring those otherwise inclined to stay back, terrifying the enemy, promoting a sense of unity as well as communicating to allies that they have support. Even the Muslim sources call it “Terror Verse”.

Bukhari Sahih Hadith 5.456
“Muhammad led the Fear/ Terror Prayer [Allahu Akbar] with one batch of his army while the other (batch) faced the enemy.”

Bukhari Sahih Hadith 5.516
“When Allah’s Apostle fought or raided people we raised our voices shouting, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'”

For 1400 years, Shia and Sunni Muslims fought and slaughtered each other (and continue doing so today) – as well as of course none Muslims – using the same Terror verse of “Allahu Akbar”.

Muhammad’s Quran contains 109 verses that incite all Muslims to war (Jihad – al Baqra 2:216) against unbelievers/Kuffar/Infidels; currently 80% of unsuspecting humanity (Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Agnostics, Atheists, etc.). Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers, and kill the infidels wherever they may be hiding.

Muslims who do not join the fight/Jihad are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not participate in the carnage.

What invariably escapes the understanding and comprehension of most people is the fact, that these Quranic verses are open-ended (forever), meaning that they are not restricted in time or space or embedded within a historical context (unlike the Biblical verses of violence which are local in time and place). They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah’s Sharia, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in Muhammad’s Quran.

Unfortunately, there are no verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate (over-rule) or even balance out the many that call for none-believers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are slaughtered, since the sole purpose of Islamic belief is to make every single human being on Earth submit to Allah’s Sharia.

This proclivity towards racism, intolerance and violence – and Muhammad’s own aggressive tradition – have resulted in an ocean of spilled blood on three continents, and hundreds of millions of crushed humans, across the world in the last 1400 years of Arab and Islamic Imperialism.

Muslims and their apologists, deceive us by alleging, that Muslim terrorists are not true Muslims; that they are twisting or misrepresenting Islamic scripture when in reality “Muslim terrorists do not hijack, distort or pervert the Cult of Muhammadan Islam; it is the Cult of Muhammadan Islam that hijacks rational thinking and perverts peoples’ minds” because ISIS, Boko Haram, al Shabab and hundreds more Muslim terror groups, follow their Islamic scripture perfectly as they recite verbatim, verses from Muhammad’s Quran, justifying their heinous deeds.

1400 years later, in the 21st century, the modern followers of Muhammad use exactly the same Terror Verse as they murder, bomb, hi-jack and blow up unarmed, unsuspecting and innocent civilians all over the globe, and make sure that the Medium of TV is there to have the whole world witness their mind boggling barbarity and cowardice.

The worst offenders are not the Muslims – who are only attempting to fulfil Allah’s Sharia – the worst criminals by negligence or incompetence, are our own political leaders, corrupt main line and social media, clueless clergy and the under educated academics, who aid and abet the Muslim agenda to dominate the world, by their wilful lack of knowledge, or egregious cases of denial of facts and reality.

When pope Francis – the leader of 1,200,000,000 Catholics and his underling clergy, as well as other so called Christian prelates – falsely and very stupidly tell their flocks, that the god of Islam Allah, is the same as the God of the Bible, the battlefield of knowledge is skewed to allow Islam to dominate the world, totally unopposed as is unfolding as you are reading this article.

They have all been disgustingly and deafeningly silent regarding the hundreds of thousands of Christians murdered, kidnapped, plundered, enslave and or forced to convert to Islam all over the Arab and Muslim countries in the last decade making Christianity the most persecuted faith in the 21st century.

How is it possible to have such incredible degrees of lack of comprehension and backbone from among 533 members in the US Congress who are not Muslims, who know that Ilhan Omar supports Sharia compliance in the USA and what Rashida Tlaib said while participating in an online “vote-a-thon” co-hosted by the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Georgia Muslim Voter Project, “I hope that you realize just the opportunity here that Allah has given us to show the power of Muslims in Georgia.”

She invoked the name of the very Allah, who mandates that Muslims must make Americans submit to Sharia; Sharia, the very antithesis of every article in the US Constitution. I am purposefully ignoring members of the Media, Intelligence Services and Academia. Their public declarations are plain treason.

How can anyone explain the denial of reality by the European leaders and peoples, who suffer regularly from Muslims shouting “Allahu Akbar” before slaughtering Christians; yet the Police, Politicians and Media, attribute these to acts by ‘mentally disturbed’ people, although these heinous deeds are always committed by Muslims; not Buddhists, not Hindus, not Jews, not Christians.

All of our elite leaders, deliberately deny the common denominator that links all these terrorists to their Islamic beliefs in Muhammad’s Quran and Sharia. They are all complicit in aiding and abetting the most certain reality, that in the very near future Muslims and Islam will dominate and destroy Christians and Christianity.

Accountability for Afghanistan





Accountability for Afghanistan

In times of extreme stress and incredible loss of rational thinking among the leaders of a people, a few men or women rise up from the destruction with voices of pure sanity that are actually needed under these dire circumstances so that citizens can have hope that not all is lost.

Marine LTC Stuart Scheller is such a voice. He demands accountability from the American leaders who allowed the worst military humiliation to occur since the sickening fall of Saigon to the Vietcong.

For daring to stand up for his fallen fellow soldiers and their families, who were murdered unnecessarily by the Taliban at the airport, the military brass decided to sanction him for not going through the channels of command to voice his concerns.

What channels of command? Which commanders? The ones who vacated Bagram air base, the most strategic property in central Asia, in the middle of the night like cowardly thieves?

The ones who are more concerned with Critical Race Theories, “White Rage” and  alleged White supremacists in the military while ignoring their primary duty to focus on the Taliban and how to leave Afghanistan in an orderly and safe manner?

In WWII, the commanders who did not anticipate or were prepared for a sneak attack at Pearl Harbour were instantly removed from office although under the circumstances pertaining in that year, no one could have even predicted such a scenario.

Other generals were later removed during the war for failing to be aggressive enough in the face of the enemy.

In the case of Afghanistan, it should have been crystal clear to the lowest ranking officer, that vacating Bagram base before saving Americans and allies would have been an utterly insane choice.

Yet, this was exactly what was done. The questions that historians and authors will have to determine is how culpable the military leaders, the intelligence apparatus, State Department and Biden were.

Did Biden – because of his incredible and irrational obsession to overturn every single one of Trump’s achievements – overrule his military advisors and if so, Biden should be impeached and followed by a court martial.

There were 2500 troops in Afghanistan who had not suffered a single loss in 14 months. Why was it so urgent and necessary to remove them while the USA has had over 80,000 in Japan for the last 76 years; 28,000 in South Korea for 68 years and over 35,000 in Germany for the last 76 years costing US Taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars? True there are no active shoot outs in these countries but it can happen any time in Korea and then what?

Bagram was so well defended the Taliban could not take it over under any circumstances. It was because of Bagram’s infinite reach that for the previous 14 months, not a single American was killed and also that the Afghan army was willing and able to stand up to the Taliban. They –contrary to Biden’s blatant lie and unacceptable insult, lost over 66,000 dead fighting for their country (26 times greater than US losses and this does not include wounded usually x 8).

The instant Bagram was vacated, neither the Americans not their allies had the air cover necessary to hold the Taliban at bay. The 13 who were murdered recently happened after Bagram was handed over to looters.

The die is now cast. America is out of Afghanistan with incredible degrees of shame, regrets and betrayals.

The US military should immediately strike and destroy all the vehicles, planes and other military assets worth billions of dollars and the best technologies they left for the Taliban, the Russians, Chinese and Iranians. These should not be allowed to be used by her enemies now or in the future. This requires a decision by all the top military leaders in the USA with the consent of the spineless Biden.

No matter how Biden and his Democrats will spin these cataclysmic events, Afghanistan will become the breeding ground of almost every Muslim terror group on the planet who will then go back to their countries to spread their Islamic faith with terror.

To fill America’s vacuum, the Chinese, Russians, Iranians and Pakistanis will avail their support, financially, politically, religiously and militarily. China especially will attempt to control her strategic rare mineral resources that Biden so cavalierly abandoned.

Americans should at last realize that there is only one Islam. There are no shades in Islam. A Muslim is only a Muslim if he/she follows Allah’s Sharia. All what you read from the media and apologists for Islam are pure, unadulterated lies because only Sharia compliant Muslims are true Muslims. All other sects or shades of Islam are called hypocrites by Fundamentalist Muslims who are the purest of Muslims such as ISIS, Taliban. Hamas, Hezbollah, al Shabab, BokoHaram and others. They are not extremists, militant or radical; they are Sharia compliant Muslims (like Ilhan Omar).

Although Shia and Sunni Muslims hate each other, they nonetheless abide by one Quran and therefore they both hate and despise non-Muslims equally and with the same degrees of contempt until all of humanity either submits to Allah’s Sharia or be exterminated.

Even the Afghan who helped the allies in their fight against the Taliban  did not all do so for love of country, but because they were very well paid and taken care of. I am not insulting them but pointing out reality. Therefore, those who are being vacated, not all of them have love for America or gratitude in their minds. They need to be vetted. Those who come to the USA and start attending mosques regularly, will become dangerous because it is precisely in mosques that they are indoctrinated by the imams to follow Sharia; the nemesis of all known freedoms and the exact opposite of the US Constitution.

Why should Afghan women who escaped the Taliban continue to wear the Hijab in the USA? After all, the Hijab is the worst symbol of oppression of Muslim females, so why continue wearing it unless these females follow Sharia? The very belief system that is ruling Afghanistan with terror and oppression.

Have Americans woken up yet to the fact that Muslim leaders – especially males –  use terror and only terror to control the minds and actions of their citizens? Why would ‘peaceful’ Islam slaughter any Muslim who wants out of Islam, if Islam is such a great religion? No other religion on Earth mandates the murder of any citizen who changes its mind regarding their belief whether religious or political. Only in Islam does one find these draconian rules. After all Muhammad did declare on numerous occasions that Allah made him victorious with terror.

Bukhari Hadith 2977: “Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle  said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”

Do Americans even know that in Europe especially, the imams in their mosques tell the Muslims that what Europeans are doing to integrate Muslims is not charity but actually a form of Islamic Jizya (an onerous penalty for not accepting Islam); meaning that the European Christians are only submitting to Sharia and have nothing to do with the decency or benevolence of Christians. The same is being told in American mosques.

Sharia compliant Muslims can never integrate or assimilate nor be loyal citizens among non-Muslims/ kuffar/ infidels

UN Security Council’s Complicity in Oppression and Murder

Cras at diam nec mi bibendum fringilla eu et massa.




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. Pictured: Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces deploy in front of demonstrators in Ramallah on July 3, 2021, during a protest denouncing the PA for the death of activist Nizar Banat while in the custody of PA security forces. (Photo by Abbas Momani/AFP via Getty Images)

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.
