HUH?! Muslim New Jersey Councilman Says US City is “Part of Palestine”; Palestinian Flag Raised Over NJ City by Muslim Charged w Violence

By Debbie Schlussel

A Muslim City Councilman in Chris Chrispiecreme’s favorite city, Paterson, New Jersey, declared that the American city is “part of Palestine,” while other Muslims and the city’s mayor raised the Palestinian flag over the city to protest Israel’s existence on Sunday.

palestinianflagpaterson

Last year, I told you about Paterson’s mayor raising the Palestinian flag, and this year, the city did it again, with its several Muslim elected officials declaring that the the flag was raised to commemorate the “Nakba”–Arabic for the “catastrophe,” which is how they describe Israel’s existence. Not the West Bank or Gaza, but ALL of Israel. This is no different than calling for the erasing of Israel and Jews from the earth. Same thing.

As I noted, last year, and in many previous posts on this site over the years, Paterson is the American city with the highest concentration of Palestinians. The city, the site of many pro-9/11 cheers and riots on the day of the attacks, also has a number of other Muslims who have grown to dominate the city’s demographics and elections. It is ground zero (just as Dearbornistan, Michigan and a growing number of other American cities are) for what happens when we do nothing to stop Islamic immigration. They take over and embrace the radical chic of terrorists. Chris Christie has repeatedly “reached out” and campaigned to Paterson’s extremist Muslims, even sparing a HAMAS terrorist from deportation and appointing his extremist Paterson HAMASnik Muslim lawyer to a judgeship. Notice that Gov. Chrispiecreme did not denounce the Palestinian flag raising and declarations against Israel’s existence, last year, and he didn’t this year, either. He never will.

Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman, one of the Muslim city councilman at the flag raising, faced two separate criminal charges last year for inciting mob violence against three other Muslims. Like I always say, you can take ‘em out of the Muslim world, but you can’t take Muslim world values of violence and destruction out of them.

For the second year in a row, Palestinians gathered at City Hall in Paterson on Sunday to raise their flag. . . . The Palestinian national anthem played and a crowd of about 200 cheered as Mayor Jeffery Jones hoisted the red, black, white and green flag. A local tradition had been born . . . . We can assure you we will not get tired,” said Somaia Barghougt, Palestine’s senior adviser to the United Nations, “until Palestine is a free, independent and democratic state.”












Hmmm . . . ever look at the lyrics of the Palestinian National Anthem? It’s called “Fedayee,” which–while it literally translates to “redeemer,” “resistor,” or “revolutionary”–is actually a reference to Palestinian Muslim terrorists, who are, plural, “Fedayeen,” and singular, “Fedayee.” In Islam, a “fedayee” or “fada’i” is one who is willing to sacrifice his life for the Islamic cause. Here’s a taste of the “anthem”:

Fedayee, Fedayee Fedayee [Palestinian terrorist, Palestinian terrorist, Palestinian terrorist]
My people, people of eternity
With my determination, my fire and the volcano of my vendetta . . . .

With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the weapons
And the determination of my nation in the land of struggle
Palestine is my home, Palestine is my fire,
Palestine is my vendetta and the land of withstanding . . .

By my land and nation, and the fire of pain
I will live as a Fedayee [Palestinian terrorist], I will remain a redeemer,
I will die as a Fedayee [Palestinian terrorist] – until my country returns
Fedayee [Palestinian terrorist].

Charming national anthem stuff, right?

Back to the terrorist flag-raising:

The flag-raising was sponsored by the Paterson-based Arab American Civic Organization and coincided with Nakba Day, which Palestinians observe each May 15. . . . Several speakers compared the struggle for Palestinian statehood to that of America’s war for independence from Britain. “Our Founding Fathers sacrificed so much for the Stars and Stripes and it behooves us all to recognize that by standing and supporting nations who long for freedom and independence,” said Khader “Ken” Abuassab, vice president of the Arab American Civic Organization. “Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Eisenhower and Kennedy all stood by people who need American help and guidance. Mayor Jones, by raising the Palestinian flag today at City Hall, you are honoring a great American tradition and you are following in the footsteps of the Founding Fathers.”

Hmmm . . . how many schoolbuses filled with children, how many bars and pizza joints and hotels filled with innocent civilians did the Founding Fathers, Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Eisenhower, and Kennedy blow up? How many people did they rip apart alive? How many families did they murder, including six-month-old babies, while the families were sleeping on a religious holiday?

“We are glad you are Patersonians,” Jones said. “We are glad you are part of the city.” . . . Lauren Murphy, the wife of Passaic County and state Democratic Chairman John Currie, stood alongside Paterson City Council President Andre Sayegh, who finished second in Tuesday’s mayoral election. Also present were Paterson city Councilman Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman and Maritza Davila, who was elected to the City Council on Tuesday.

“South Paterson is a major piece of Palestine,” said Sayegh, who represents the city’s heavily Arabic 6th Ward. “We are a better Paterson because of Palestinians.”

Well, as I pointed out, Palestinians are already calling Brooklyn, “West Bank Brooklyn,” and in a few generations, America will know what it feels like to have Muslim interloper terrorists taking over through force and through immigration and birth jihads.

Today, Paterson, tomorrow your town, because politicians like George W. Bush and Barack Obama used the 9/11 attacks to reward Muslims with more invasion . . . er, “immigration” and appeasement.

Good luck with that. In a few generations, our President will be in the same position as Goodluck Jonathan. And, given 9/11, we’ve already been there, done that. Yay, America.

They love Palestine so much that they don’t want to live there. Frankly, those Patterson Muslims are the catastrophe.

OMG….where or who do we to turn to..

HK on May 20, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    Laura S. on May 20, 2014 at 8:40 pm

      How?

      HK on May 20, 2014 at 9:29 pm

        Hello HK, you ask How? How to turn to God? If you want to know please ask the next Jehovah’s Witnesses who knock at your door, or ring your local Kingdom Hall and ask them to send someone round. Please hear us out. I listened to them many many years ago and am more glad than I know how to say that I did.

        I learnt more about what the Bible on my shelf says in the first 20 minutes of talking to them than I did in all my years of churchgoing, both Catholic and Protestant.

        Re the Palestinian flag issue – yes, I too wondered if it was legal to do that in the States. I don’t know. Would I have raised, for example, the Polish flag under those circumstances? No. Our Creator asks us to respect the government we live under.

        But can I grudge them the PC protection they have? I find I can’t really, as I know only too well what its like to be defined as “unter” in the Thoughtcrime world of PC. I hope I would never wish it on anyone else.

        sue on May 21, 2014 at 4:40 am

          Oh no! It’s sue, the Witness with the bad knees. She said she would scram, but all bad things happen again.

          sue doesn’t care about Moooooslims killing you. sue is all about proselytizing her annoying religion.

          thanks Sue, I always listen… but that God is immortally wounded

          HK on May 21, 2014 at 9:14 am

          You forgot to mention that Jehova’s Witnesses do not believe that Israel exists by divine mandate. If it’s just another country, who cares if the palestinians hate it?

          Rich Trickey on May 21, 2014 at 11:25 am

          HK, in truth, I didn’t bother reading all of lower-case-sue’s response last time, but I did when you responded. Here’s the clincher:

          “But can I grudge them [Fakestinian murderers]
          the PC protection they have? I find I can’t really, as I know only too well what its like to be defined as “unter” in the Thoughtcrime world of PC.”

          In other words, our bad-kneed Witness, who doesn’t try to convert Moooooslims, can’t even bring herself to criticize pandering to Fakestinians cuz she has been a “victim” herself. So, she spends her time safe at home in Britain, with her bad knees, trying to convert Jews online.

          WHEN OH WHEN will the Moooslims of UK finally pick her off?

          skzion on May 21, 2014 at 12:46 pm

As bad as Bush was – to pretend that Obama is more of the same seems a central illusion to me.
That would be kind of like saying and a lot worse really(seems to me) that Lance Armstrong was really just the same except more after he started taking steroids so what’s the fuss about?

And so America marches towards Lebanon unable to nuance “subtle” differences in an effort to appear even handed when that is exactly what is being nuanced out of the picture.

Frankz on May 20, 2014 at 5:37 pm

When I think of Paterson, NJ, I think of William Carlos Williams’ famed poem “Paterson”–named for the City. But Paterson, NJ of today bears no resemblance nor correspondence to his poem. But things change, and Gresham’s law that “bad money drives out good” applies as much to people as it does to economics. And once that turn for the worse happens, turning back seems nearly impossible. Like Thomas Wolfe famously said, “You can’t go home again.” That’s certainly true if your home was Paterson, NJ decades ago.

From Book I, Paterson

Paterson lies in the valley under the Passaic Falls
its spent waters forming the outline of his back. He
lies on his right side, head near the thunder
of the waters filling his dreams! Eternally asleep,
his dreams walk about the city where he persists
incognito. Butterflies settle on his stone ear.
Immortal he neither moves nor rouses and is seldom
seen, though he breathes and the subtleties of his machinations
drawing their substance from the noise of the pouring river
animate a thousand automations. Who because they
neither know their sources nor the sills of their
disappointments walk outside their bodies aimlessly
for the most part,
locked and forgot in their desires-unroused.

—Say it, no ideas but in things—
nothing but the blank faces of the houses
and cylindrical trees
bent, forked by preconception and accident—
split, furrowed, creased, mottled, stained—
secret—into the body of the light!

From above, higher than the spires, higher
even than the office towers, from oozy fields
abandoned to gray beds of dead grass,
black sumac, withered weed-stalks,
mud and thickets cluttered with dead leaves-
the river comes pouring in above the city
and crashes from the edge of the gorge
in a recoil of spray and rainbow mists-

(What common language to unravel?
. . .combed into straight lines
from that rafter of a rock’s
lip.)

A man like a city and a woman like a flower
—who are in love. Two women. Three women.
Innumerable women, each like a flower.

But
only one man—like a city.

Debbie, I thank you for providing the most detailed coverage of this disgusting event I’ve found on the Internet. What is particularly insulting is that Christie is playing both sides of the field. He has attended a number of Jewish events in an attempt to woo Sheldon Adelson and get his fat paws on the latter’s millions. I’m so thankful for Bridgegate derailing his presidential aspirations. It shows that either Christie’s a nasty piece of shit who’ll indulge in vengeance, or he can’t control his staff members. Personally, I think both are true.

Elana Starr on May 20, 2014 at 5:53 pm

So where were the mainstream media in reporting this event, both this year and last year? I saw no coverage anywhere. Even the formerly stalwart New York Post had nothing.

commonsense on May 20, 2014 at 9:55 pm

They need to bring the National Guard to take down the flag, I always thought it was treason and punishable to fly another countries flag in the United States higher than the American Flag. Why don’t they go home I am pretty sure that the Americans are tired of this Bull and don’t want them here anyway. We need people in government that are American and will stick up for this countries and American peoples values and American rights.Not those of intruders that say they came here for a better life and just ruin our country.

Barbara Collare on May 20, 2014 at 10:02 pm

That is the most vile thing to allow those Mu slums spew that hate! And to think those in office who claim to know their history, is nothing more than a fraud! This is nothing more than an act of violence, they are complacent. They should all be arrested and thrown in jail. God said, he will hate those that hate my people, Israel. I pray he smites them as they spew!

I love Israel on May 20, 2014 at 10:27 pm

So, now we have Paterstine, New Jersey.

And a Paterstinian finished second in the mayor’s race?

Hmmmmm, I thought there was no such thing as a Palestinian.

Back to The Bible. I’m afraid, I’m very afraid, and it’s too late. The Demmicans are hard after controlling free speech and getting rid of the 1st Amendment, we know they are after the guns and will get them. The Republicrats have no balls, just want money and power, we know that.

And then, the 1.7 billion hollow point rounds and 2,700 light armored tanks will be released. Did y’all know what a manufacturer of those 25 year food packages that you just add water to, heat and serve said recently? That FEMA tried to buy up his whole supply. I wouldn’t doubt it.

I don’t usually disagree with Debbie on anything, but once again, I find one tiny area of disagreement. We don’t have generations, only a few more years, . . .

at MOST.

Goodbye, America. It was nice almost knowing you, but you went to hell just as I was growing up, so I never really did, except for a while during the Reagan days, . . .

perhaps.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 20, 2014 at 10:37 pm

Creeping Sharia!Islam is a political and military system masquerading as a religion. The Muslim Brotherhood calls for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within. They state, we do not want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy. That is what we want. Muslims can LIE to the infidel to promote Islam. Infidels will have to convert to Islam, be enslaved or be killed. Sharia Law is not compatible with the US Constitution.

Greg Zotta on May 21, 2014 at 4:14 am

You know, the Palestinians are being whipped into a frenzy. They don’t necessarily want to harm anyone by being here, but when part of being proud of who they are turns into being against others, that is a problem. Patterson had a lot of problems with race riots in the 60′s/70′s era and a lot of the white population ran out. It is an old industrial city with a lot of working class people.

I don’t know about there being Jews left in Patterson. There are Jews in the nearby suburb of Wayne, NJ, but Patterson has a bad reputation already. There are some die hard Italians, a lot of blacks, Hispanics like all over, and then the Palestinian area. I don’t consider the whole city to be Palestinian.

Since Palestine was once called trans-Jordan, maybe they should think of themselves as Jordanians. Nevertheless, they are Arabs and they can celebrate their ethnicity but hopefully without it meaning to hate Israel.

bb on May 21, 2014 at 7:53 am

    bb, Fakestinians have no distinct ethnicity. They were created by Arafat solely to kill Jews. A Fakestinian can only be loyal to his “nationality” by killing Jews.

    skzion on May 21, 2014 at 8:56 am

the Palestinians are pawns used by radical arab entities against the West and Israel. They are too cowardly and stupid to realize this and break free. Their “arab brothers” dont give a sht about them. The radical arab entity pushes them on the front lines to die. It is sad and pathetic. Maybe one day they will realize this.

Hello HK – please do hear what it is we want to tell you. A rescue is close at hand. If you had created this lovely planet, floating like a blue and white jewel in space, would you allow it to be ruined by the greed and violence of some men?

The God of Abraham has promised us that He will “bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

Has any one of His promises ever failed?

Yes, us JWs are neutral on the Israel/Palestine question, as we try to be in all these national issues. But anyone who listens to us will be a good citizen of whatever country they happen to live in. They will obey the laws and pay their taxes. And that is what we are teaching as we go door to door.

This has to be a relative obedience of course, is that when human governments ask us to disobey God’s law, then God’s law must come first.

Not that I am going door to door yet – because (well remembered skzion) I have bad knees. Well not so much bad now, as Knewly Installed Knees, but I am still running them in. And I am worried that I will never again be able to prove convincingly that I am not a robot when trying to post things on blogs.

As for going through an airport scanner…

sue on May 21, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    “If you had created this lovely planet, floating like a blue and white jewel in space, would you allow it to be ruined by the greed and violence of some men?”

    It doesn’t matter what the wicked do to earth – that’s why God gave man free-will – because it will be cleansed at the 2nd resurrection.

    I suggest that you read Revelation very carefully.

    DS_ROCKS! on May 21, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      Hello DSRocks Yes, I wish everyone would study Revelation carefully. We have gone through it verse by verse many times in the congregations.

      The promise about the earth is in Revelation. Revelation 11:18 says: “But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

      So Jehovah will act to prevent the earth being ruined. Didn’t He act in Noah’s day, when the earth became filled with violence?

      He did not allow the earth to be ruined then. He won’t allow it to be ruined now. When Noah and his family left the Ark, it was to a cleansed earth, but “the original serpent” was still in charge. Won’t there be an everlasting deliverance at Armageddon? From that moment on, obedient humankind will be heading back to the perfection that our first parents lost. And the earth will become the paradise it was always meant to be.

      That is what we are trying to tell people- that a rescue is so close at hand.

Nothing that happens in NJ or anywhere else, for that fact, really surprises me but it does infuriate me to no end because it blatantly takes place daily and nobody has the guts to call them out. Government, from the federal down to the local level, allows this to happen on their watch and fears reprisal should they confront these pukes and take action.

All this PC pandering and lack of action serves nothing more than to accelerate the impending demise of this country. I’m both appalled and saddened; I never thought this nation would buckle the way it has and continues to do, both on a national and international level.

I need to puke, then clean weapons and load magazines……

Thanks for reminding me why I stopped commenting skzion – as I seem to be driving you to say things you should not be saying.

My young surgeon was Muslim – Brit Muslim – and I am very thankful to him that he didn’t take the chance of, what was your lovely expression? “picking me off”! Aaargghh. Very thankful. Though it never occurred to me that he might.

And I should note that its very kind of Debbie to let me comment at all.

    “Thanks for reminding me why I stopped commenting skzion – as I seem to be driving you to say things you should not be saying.”

    -sue

    Au contraire, sue. You are giving me the opportunity to say things that are necessary to say. Your cowardly indifference to evil is contemptible. I note that you do not even contest the “clincher” that I referred to above.

    sue’s idiotic religion should rightly be scorned, as, unlike real Christianity, Jehovah’s Witness “Christianity” is a force only for the coddling of evil. Gentle readers should see that I’ve already shown how sue’s religion does not–cannot–distinguish right from wrong. It involves name dropping, of course, too fool the casual observer. Note, for example, reference to the “God of Abraham.” And yet, for all that talk, sue doesn’t seem to think that Jews have special status over Muslims in . . . Eretz Israel? I guess Abraham could have been a Moooooslim. Who is she to discount the possibility?

    And consider this bit of phoniness:

    “A rescue is close at hand. If you had created this lovely planet, floating like a blue and white jewel in space, would you allow it to be ruined by the greed and violence of some men?”

    Uh, has she ever heard of the Great Flood? (How Biblically illiterate is this woman?!)

    A religion that is interested only in recruitment but has nothing moral to say (except the morality of being recruited) is a diversion from a serious conversation. sue only abets evil by diverting attention from a serious discussion of it.

    Unfortunately, Skunky is not around now or she and I could do a tag team trashing of sue and her bad knees just like in the good old days. Alas! I must shoulder this responsibility myself. Fortunately, the British Health System is known to kill off patients when they cost too much, or even when they overstay their welcome. That’s when the citizens manage to get seen in the first place. With sue’s new titanium knees, she’s already cost a pretty penny, so one can hope that she won’t be around to bother us for much longer.

    skzion on May 21, 2014 at 6:48 pm

@sue
I too revere this “blue and white jewel in space”. I so, so deeply yearn for peace, love and the brotherhood of all good men prevailing over evil that exists on this precious planet. I also seek nirvana. But guess what?!!? As soon as the LSD wears off, youre still living on this Earth, and you better start dealing with reality. The reality is, that there is a vicious, merciless and murderous ideology that seeks to takeover our ” blue and white jewel in space”. Knock on their door while you are proselytizing your message of love and your beheading will be featured on youtube that night. Do you get that?!? I’m sure youre a lovely lady, a very nice naive lovely lady. but your notion of peace , love and understanding will not help rid our “jewel”,this planet, of the scourge of radical islam that threatens all that you believe in. all that we on this site believe in. Thats what all this is about. You fight force with force not with an abstract notion of a higher order of being. Meanwhile, keep your titanium kneecaps well oiled because before too long youre gonna be in the flight of your life.

HK on May 21, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    Dear HK, please please trust in the Creator. He knows what He is doing.

    Can we not trust this clear promise, that ends the second chapter of Proverbs?

    “So follow the way of good people
    And stay on the paths of the righteous,
    ?For only the upright will reside in the earth,
    And the blameless will remain in it.
    ?As for the wicked, they will be cut off from the earth,
    And the treacherous will be torn away from it.”

    Our Creator will remove the wicked from the earth. All we have to do is to trust Him with all our hearts. Have any of his promises failed to come true?

    They never have and they never will. Isn’t that the very meaning of His name?

    I have spoken to Muslims and Jews and all kinds of people on the doors and mostly they have been very nice. Nobody has beheaded me – so far. Though, as things are getting more and more violent, skzion’s wish may yet come true.

    However let us remember that I am Polish – and therefore (officially) “dumb”. So perhaps I will manage quite well without my head, given there is (officially) nothing in it?

    And, yes, sk, I do feel guilty about what I am costing the health service. Even though I have paid in all my life… I fear it has not covered the cost of these knees.

    sk – you also mention the flood of Noah’s day. Yes. Absolutely. When the earth became full of violence then, God acted. The earth is full of violence now. He will soon act again.

    Only this time it will be an everlasting deliverance. The serpent will no longer be in the garden. And we will be returning to the life and perfection our first parents lost.

    Jesus made this powerful comparison in Matthew chapter 24, when he said: “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. ?For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. ?For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, ?and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be. ?Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken along and the other abandoned. ?Two women will be grinding at the hand mill; one will be taken along and the other abandoned. 42?Keep on the watch, therefore, because you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.”

    Please bear in mind that the writers of the Christian Greek Scriptures are Jewish, all the earliest Christians were Jews. Aren’t they worth listening to?

    I’m listening to them, and trying to cling on to their teaching.

    sue on May 22, 2014 at 5:10 am

      I’ll quote from an earlier response:

      “But can I grudge them [Fakestinian murderers]
      the PC protection they have? I find I can’t really, as I know only too well what its like to be defined as “unter” in the Thoughtcrime world of PC.”

      -sue

      In other words, our bad-kneed Witness, who doesn’t try to convert Moooooslims, can’t even bring herself to criticize pandering to Fakestinians cuz she has been a “victim” herself. So, she spends her time safe at home in Britain, with her bad knees, trying to convert Jews online.

@sue
your sorrowful fixation with the blind belief that an abstract fabrication ( the Creator) is the solution to mankind’s evil ( radical islam’s warring and destructive characteristics )is a further affirmation of your weakness and cowardice. Only men on Earth, can rid the planet of the scourge that threatens the very existence of us all, radical islam. Please (re)read your world civ texts. Islam’s edict to conquer the world is nothing new. Please refrain from vacuously quoting proverb. It does nothing but make the weak and frail feel comfortable. Fighting for that freedom so that we can live under the 10 commandments and supporting those fighters is the only way to achieve what you and all of us seek. your total submission to ” a creator” , without real work on the ground will mean certain death. Know your enemy. Oh, and by the way, when you say ” I am Polish -and therefore (officially) “dumb”, “, I take umbrage with that comment, as I am half Polish and dont feel that I wear that moniker very well.

HK on May 22, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Hello HK – I was referring to this, described in John Radzilowski’s excellent “Poles in Minnesota”:

    In it he says:
    “”The 1970s represented a kind of watershed for Poles in Minnesota…
    Nationally, the entertainment industry and media singled out Polish Americans for stigmatization, and stores across Minnesota carried bigoted “Polish joke” products that were widely used. Because they had little mainstream media presence, many Polish Americans, especially young people, internalized these stereotypes. If students did not keep quiet, they faced harassment and abuse from classmates and sometimes even teachers. With the Polish White Eagle Association,
    this stigmatization led to occasional pressures to remove the
    word “Polish” from the group’s name as early as the 1960′s.”
    (Poles in Minnesota, John Radzilowski, Minnesota Historical Society Press, pp.67-68)

    I don’t agree with it! It was quite a shock in my expat years, living in what was effectively small town America, to find that an automatic sneer has been attached to all things Polish. I had no idea. And I can’t still can’t imagine what we ever did to America.

    Do you know?

    But that really is my problem with Political Correctness – it seems to “uber” and “unter” people – to say who must be treated with respect and who can safely be insulted.

    Everyone should be treated with respect – though we certainly do not have to respect everything everyone does.

    We may indeed be killed because we obey our Creator, but as God told his people, centuries ago: “underneath are the everlasting arms”.

    Everlasting arms don’t go away. They don’t fail to catch and hold. And can’t God’s love for us wake us from the dreamless sleep of death when the time comes?

      yes, everyone who earns respect should be treated with respect

      “Everyone should be treated with respect. . . . Everlasting arms don’t go away. They don’t fail to catch and hold. And can’t God’s love for us wake us from the dreamless sleep of death when the time comes?”

      No, everyone should not be treated with respect, because that means that respect is unearned.

      Bad-kneed sue and her ilk are parasitic on the decent folk who at least have the courage to make moral distinctions. Her type would have been wiped from the earth without such folk. Her kumbaya “we are the world” crap is nauseating.

      Also nauseating is her self-pity. For example:

      “my problem with Political Correctness – it seems to “uber” and “unter” people – to say who must be treated with respect and who can safely be insulted.”

      I’ll repeat that her main beef is being “unter” (nice use of German) because she’s a Jehovah’s Witness. Now she cries about American Poles not being treated nicely in the US–and she does so HERE of all places. She can’t think ill of Fakestinians or other assorted Moooooooslims, but she has no problem bemoaning the minor slights she has experienced.

      Nauseating. This woman has no shame or decency. She disgorges innumerable feel-good banalities, but she is ultimately a self-pitying, amoral scoundrel.

        Good evening from the English Channel skzion, The “unter” was referring to the way that I feel – correctly or not – that Political Correctness “unters” and “ubers”. It signals who must not be criticised, no matter what they do, and who can safely be insulted.

        If it tried to help us all to keep “the law of loving kindness” on our tongues, I would be all for it. But it does not seem to work like that.

        My being a Jehovah’s Witness is a different thing. Jesus warned that “the world” would hate his followers and make things difficult for them. If I am not prepared for that, then I should stop being a Christian, surely? There is no point complaining about it.

        Nor am I particularly bothered about the campaign against Poles/Poland in the American media – the way we sort of have – how to define it? – negative PC-protection? I was surprised and upset at first. And am still surprised.

        Do you know why? What it was we did to America? I did do some research to see if we were dreadful immigrants, always causing trouble, etc. But it doesn’t seem so. But perhaps we were Anyway, its not something that upsets me. Doesn’t God’s inspired word teach us how to deal with all these problems?

        But I was trying (and obviously failing!) to explain why I want to be careful not to “unter” any other group… which makes me careful about speaking out in certain areas.

        And, Debbie, thanks again for letting my post into the blog… its your blog and you clearly do not have to. I must be careful not to take advantage. But you are talking about such serious and upsetting things here (not like in my own blog, which is more: What I Did in My Holidays).

It’s just not Paterson (btw there is no Patterson nj)…drive down main street, through hell aka P-town…into Clifton. Your mind would REEL on how many signs are in Arabic.

Like I once mentioned here (yrs ago) when 9-11 happened…Arabs were in the streets of Paterson doing that crappy ululations , clapping and jumping up and down (and passing out candies.) I know this from a cop who was on patrol that day.

Yes the article says that there was “no evidence” of ‘slime’s dancing in the streets. Of course no official would say there was..as it would be political suicide (or otherwise…if you get my drift.)

Oh yea…and this : http://www.northjersey.com/story-archives/neighborhood-in-paterson-was-once-home-to-some-9-11-hijackers-1.592003

I would have burned their f**king flag, and tell them it will be a cold day in Hell before another terrorist state occupies The Land of Israel. There is no Palestine. There never was a Palestine. There will never be a Palestine.

    They cry that the Zionists were colonizers who stole their land (when actually it was purchased), yet they colonize Europe and establish sharia law and no go zones wherever they go.

The refugee resettlement agencies need to dump their Somalian “refugees” there, see how well the islamic brothers get along.

thou shalt not lie

    I couldn’t agree more HK. So at least that is one thing we can agree on.

    sue on May 23, 2014 at 12:49 pm

They may get their Palestinian state one day because Western Leaders are morons, but it will be as free and democratic as Saudi Arabia.

They won’t keep a State for long because every other Arab government hates them. And they will make the mistake of attacking Israel when someone Conservative is in office.

Occam's Tool on May 25, 2014 at 4:11 am

What enrages me is the lack of focus on what is staring us in the face. If Obama is so much for this country, if he is such a patriot, then why isn’t he defending this country and this countries people on every level including preventing people from other lands raising the flag of their home land on American soil and rejoicing?!? Why? Because he’s WITH them. This is an outrage of stupendous proportion. Next they’ll be burning Old Glory in the streets just like they did with the Union Jack in England, and just like there, nothing will be done about it because those who are supposed to be in office ‘for the people’ are NOT for the AMERICAN people!!! Disgusting! The raising of ANY flag other than Old Glory should be outlawed and punished with imprisonment for traitor-ism and incitement of terrorism.

I married a man who was born and raised in Palestine. He says “The world is a big place. There is room for everyone to live their life as they see fit.” He is the nicest, most respectful guy in the world. I don’t get it. He is the complete opposite of what everyone here is saying about Palestinians. Is he an anomaly?
