It’s no secret there’s currently a propaganda war designed to slander and vilify Muslims as much as possible. In my opinion, this is due to MSM (and its enablers) which have Zionist influences, in an attempt to blame the victims of chronic Israeli aggression and oppression. Most of this deceit is transparent, like the ridiculous alleged terror links of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. But the truly dangerous slander often manifests itself in stealthy and subtle forms.
Enter the ADL, which has stepped in as the “moral authority” on the issue of the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” Community Center. The article rightly notes that most, if not all, of the hysteria surrounding the desire for prohibition amongst some circles for an Islamic building in Manhattan, is based on bigotry. But that’s not the end of this issue, according to the ADL:
However, there are understandably strong passions and keen sensitivities surrounding the World Trade Center site. We are ever mindful of the tragedy which befell our nation there, the pain we all still feel – and especially the anguish of the families and friends of those who were killed on September 11, 2001.
Well, that is ingenious. Note the implied link between Muslims and 9/11, as if the 20 hijackers were representatives of the religion and motivated by it, as opposed to political grievances. Note also a self-professed “civil liberties” (allegedly non-partisan, contrary to the prevalence of “Israel“, “Holocaust” and “Terror” labels that pitter-patter the webpage) organization which is lobbying for the denial of religious expression, of a community center designed to support a minority group which has been battered by wars, cruel dictatorships, Zionist propaganda, and ignorant imbeciles the world over.
In spite of how the ADL masquerades itself, here’s what it really is: an Israel lobby group which manipulates the memory of the Holocaust and exaggerates anti-Jewish bigotry for the political purpose of rationalizing Israel’s chronic acts of violence and shielding it from legitimate criticism and condemnation. The fact the ADL now actively seeks to limit the rights of Muslim Americans is a mainstreaming of prejudice and hate that I thought only the contemptible Geert Wilders was capable of. By trying to make the issue one of empathy for the victims of 9/11, the ADL is reaching new lows of depravity. Numerous Muslims died in that atrocity. It wasn’t Muslims dancing in the streets of New York as the Towers burned. Not to mention Benjamin Netanyahu saying “”We [Israel] are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon” in 2008. This is truly sickening behavior documented as having been exhibited by Israelis. Yet there is no condemnation by the ADL, no demands synagogues not be built based on these Jewish “representatives” desecrating the deaths of thousands of human beings as it was happening and years after the extent of its carnage was known by all.
According to the ADL, Muslims, since they are naturally responsible for all of the actions of fellow Muslims (notwithstanding the fact Mohammed Atta engaged in some decidedly un-Islamic behavior before and on the day of 9/11), must be “sensitive” to the dead while dancing and grateful Israelis are given a pass.
I genuinely struggle to understand why the ADL did this-not that I’d put it past them– but just that it is such a patently self-defeating slur which contradicts the moral veneer summed up by the mission statement they post at the end of every article! Surely they at least considered that this may be a strategic and tactical blunder, one that does accomplishes nothing besides attempting to further vilify and marginalize the American Muslim population. In the event they realize the folly of this revelatory statement, this Freudian slip, and utterly morally perverted and bankrupt missive, I’m pasting pictures of the statement, from the website, in case they delete it and accuse those of recalling it of the usual “anti-Semitic canards.” Is the ADL ignorant of the fact that Muslims are Semites too, or is that just an inconvenient truth in the realm of Jewish exceptionalism?
