The more things change, the more they stay the same!
It seems that Germany has decided to not follow Obama's lead in boycotting Durban II, despite the fact that not only will the conference be an antisemitic hate fest, it also will seek to criticize criticism of Islam (and thus is anti-free speech). Not good. Any legitimacy given to this illegitimate and anti-humanity exercise is a bad thing.
And in other news, it appears that Britain is going to recognize Hizballah and 'negotiate' with it.
Please remember that Hizballah is a Final Solution terrorist group, whose leader, Nasrallah, literally said "If all Jews were to gather in Israel, that would save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." Sadly, these are not just words, as Hizballah has attacked Jews as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina. Hizballah also bombed US Marines in 1983, killing over 300 of our brave young men and women. They are actively fighting US and British soldiers in Iraq, and are building up a massive arsenal in the South of Lebanon, in order to continue its war against Israel. Last year, Hizballah set up a 'tent city' in Beirut, and got a power sharing part of the Lebanese governement via its brute force. Right now, Lebanon is jointly ruled by the relatively secular Faoud Seniora, and by the Final Solution Hizballah.
Essentially, Hizballah is like the modern Nazi party, without having achieved the results yet of the Nazi party, despite their best hopes otherwise. They have explicitly stated their goal is the worldwide annihilation of every Jew on earth, and they air disgusting propoganda such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and scenes from a Passover "blood libel" (i.e., showcasing Jews eating the blood of Arab babies, mixed with Passover matzos), on Al-Manar TV, in order to brainwash Lebanese citizens into desiring genocide. (this is similar to what was done in Nazi Germany) I would say Al Manar is easily as bad or worse as anything that has come out of Nazi Germany, based upon the numerous MEMRI clips I have seen over the years. (and I do not exaggerate when I say that)
The fact that Britain now is recognizing Hizballah as a legitimate "political party" to be negotiated with is so beyond repugnant, it defies description.
I only hope that things will improve in the future. It is soon to be Shabbat, and I hope you have a good weekend!
