One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail
Ehud Olmert suggested that Jewish lives were worth more than Palestinian lives, he was actually making an ideological statement of immense significance and symbolism.
The plainly racist remarks is a repugnant taboo in any Western country
The killing by Israel Palestinian civilians, as well as the systematic wanton destruction by the Israeli air force of the civilian infrastructure in Gaza as the Israeli society continues to drift menacingly to religious bigotry and chauvinism.
In fact, one can safely argue that Israels brazenly criminal behaviour with respect to the Palestinian people could be viewed as ethnic cleansing.
when Israeli troops vacated Jewish settlers from a West Bank settler outpost, an Israeli Knesset member representing the National Religious Party (NRP) lambasted the army for treating human beings Israeli's the same way they were treating Palestinians.
The remarks were reported by the Israeli press and aroused no reactions whatsoever, reflecting rampant racism in Israel .
In 1994, when an American immigrant named Baruch Goldstein massacred 29 Arab worshipers as they were praying at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, militant Gush Emunim (block of the faithful) Rabbi Moshe Levenger declared, I am sorry not only about dead Arabs but about dead flies.
A few days after the massacre, Goldstein was eulogized by the Rabbi of Kiryat Arbaa, Dov Lior, who praised him as full of love for fellow human beings.
The exoneration of Israeli soldiers convicted of murdering Palestinian children (like the soldier who murdered 13-year-old Iman al-Hamas near Rafah in 2004 while on her way to school), in many ways epitomizes the Israeli perceptions of palestinians.
In short, palestinians,according to teachings, are not men but beasts; they are unclean idolaters deserving of death
This is the real explanation of why Israeli soldiers and settlers are killing Palestinian civilians at will without showing the slightest remorse.
This is also what made the Israeli Chief of Staff Dan Halutz remark,I sleep well and have a clear conscience,soon after he ordered an F-16 fighter to drop a 1-ton bomb on an apartment building in the middle of the night in Gaza, killing 16 people, 11 of whom were children.
This is what drives Israeli pilots to annihilate entire families in Tyre and Mirwaheen and then feel good about it.
A few years ago, a leading Israeli sage urged the Israeli army not to refrain from killing enemy children in order to save the lives of Israeli occupation soldiers in the Gaza Strip. When this writer consulted with a number of rabbis and scholars on whether the rabbi was a nutcase, I was told that he represented the mainstream Israeli thought.
Many Israeli's consider the international conventions incriminating the deliberate killing of civilians and the destruction of civilian homes and property, such as the Fourth Geneva Convention, as morals not binding on Israeli's.
the Jerusalem Post, had this caption on its internet site: Yesha Rabbis call for extermination of the enemy.
The report quoted the council of Jewish settlements in the West Bank as calling on the Israeli army to ignore Christian morals and exterminate the enemy in the north and south. Obviously, the term Christian morals here refers to laws of war which prohibit the killing of innocent civilians.
For example, a prominent figure, Shimon Ben Yohai, openly called for the extermination of non-Israeli's (His tomb in northern Palestine is a major pilgrimage site for many Jews.)
The Chabad movement, which openly advocates annihilation of non Israeli's
Chabad is not a marginal movement. In both Israel and the U.S. it has been able to amass a lot of wealth and acquire considerable influence. The movement, with which thousands of Israeli soldiers and high-ranking officers are affiliated, views non-Israeli's as animals or infra-human beings
