Shocker: Arabs, Muslims Cheer Israeli Forest Fire Massacre

By Debbie Schlussel

I’m sure you all remember the Muslims around the world who cheered the 9/11 attacks–from the Palestinians in the so-called “West Bank” to the Palestinians in Patterson, New Jersey, to the Shi’ite Muslim waiters at a Detroit-area restaurant to the Shi’ite Muslim students in Dearbornistan.  Yes, there were the well-manicured faux-condemnations from Muslim nations and organized Muslim groups (all of whom support terrorism and the Islamic terrorist groups,  which they refuse to condemn).  But the general population–which is the true voice–openly cheered.

Now the same is going on with the massive Israel forest fire massacre, which killed 41.


Back in Business:  Palestinian Woman on Ramallah Street Cheered 9/11 Attacks.  Now, Her People Are Cheering Carmel Forest Fire Massacre.

We still don’t know “for certain” who did it, but, as I noted last week, it’s certainly Arabs identifying with the Palestinians.  We know they are behind most forest fires in Israel, which don’t “erupt” by accident. There have been several conflicting stories regarding arrests of Arabs in connection with the fire or smaller fires nearby.

Again we see the cosmetic “condemnations” and crocodile tears about the Carmel forest fire, but the real way they and their people feel is reflected in the Arab media and on the Muslim street:

Many in the Arab world seem to be happy with the big fire that has been raging in northern Israel over the past few days.

Judging from comments on the blaze from readers in several leading Arab media outlets and websites, a majority believe that God is “punishing” Israel for occupying Arab lands and killing Palestinians, especially during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip. . . .

Others called on Israel’s enemies, particularly Iran, Hamas and Hizbullah, to seize the opportunity and try to wipe Israel off the face of earth. Only a few readers and viewers expressed sympathy with Israel over the tragedy and loss of many lives.

Following is a sample of the comments that have appeared over the past few days in the Arab media:

“May Allah punish all Arabs who helped put down the fire.

We pray to Allah that the fire will grow and spread to oil wells in the Arab world.” “O Allah, burn them [Jews] before the Day of Judgement.

O Allah, destroy them and all the enemies of Islam.”

“May Allah take revenge against them and displace them together with our corrupt [Arab] governments.”

“This is the right time for Iran. If one fire has caused panic in the Zionist entity, where are Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hassan Nasrallah? And where is Syria? One rocket could set thousands of fires.”

“Allah gives time, but never neglects. The Israelis are being punished for their deeds. We hope their end is nearing.” . . .

“Thank God for this new Holocaust and shame on the Egyptian authorities who rushed to save the Zionists while continuing to lay siege against our brothers in the Gaza Strip.”

“Thank God for burning the Jews the same way they burned our Muslim brothers in Palestine.”

“To Hizbullah, Hamas and all Arabs: This is a golden opportunity to get rid of Israel. The sea and fire are in front of the Jews and weapons are behind them.”

“This fire is the result of prayers from our prisoners held in occupation jails. The fire of Hell will be even stronger. May those Arabs who are helping the Jews burn with them in Hell.”

“Allahu Akbar! This is an effective weapon. We call on our Palestinian brothers to set fire to all forests.”

Remember, these are the people with whom Israel is constantly pressured to make “peace.” Can there ever be “peace” with over a billion who embrace this savagery? You know the answer. All intellectually honest people know the answer.

And, yet, so many of them tell Israel it doesn’t have the right to protect itself against these, um, “people.”

That Was Then . . .


This Is Now . . .

Uh huh. Israel’s enemies forget something which I noted on the Chanunkah video thread: Israel’s greatest resource is its people, such as the sadly missed and late Ahuva Torner, the Police Chief Of Haifa. Israel may never have the material resources to fix every problem but it is rich in the one asset its enemies can’t match: human capital. So while the Arabs and Muslims can mock Israel and cheer its misfortunes, the truth is Israelis overcome impossible odds like in putting out the Mt Carmel Forest Fire as we saw happened over the last week. And that’s what really bugs them.

Its no contest.

At the end of the day, this is the crux of the matter. What troubles me is there are so many…on all sides, who just can’t see it is as simple as that.

I see it. I will not equivocate. And I support Israel.

The Jerusalem Post is running a story telling of a 14-year old from Usifiya (a Druse village) admitting he started the fire. He used a hot coal to smoke a hookah, then threw the coal away, not noticing where it landed.

The Israeli Druse are generally pro-Israel, with many young men serving in the IDF, so this tragic event may have been unintentional.

Back when the tsunami occurred and people were rushing to send money to Indonesia (same muslim animals that cheered 9-11), a friend called and told me that her company was taking up a collection and would I be interested in donating. I told her that I wouldn’t contribute my saliva to these fiends as I will NEVER forget the joy that these scum enjoyed, the big difference between me and them, I wasn’t out dancing in the streets, celebrating their misery. I can’t honestly say that if the West Bank and/or Gaza goes up in flames, I would be able to contain myself.
If the Israelis or any Jew whooped it up, the Press would be covering it 24/7.

I heard one news blurb say the fire was accidentally started by Jewish campers in the area. I thought “Hunh?”, then, “Hyeah! Riiight!” Thanks for the real info, Debbie.

If the West Bank or Gaza went up in flames, few Jews would be cheering – not just because it isn’t our way to cheer the sufferings of others but because it’s, well, Jewish land, even if Israel hasn’t extended it’s sovereignty there.

What I remember most about the Muslims dancing in the streets after 9/11 was how many liberals bought the lie that the videos of the street parties were older than 9/11. The lie was this: A South American college professor claimed demonstrations looked familiar. He searched his videotape library and lo and behold found the exact same demonstrations celebrating something positive, from about 10 years earlier. When asked to produce the video, of cours he could not. But left wingers were quick (and probably eager) to believe that this man had a photographc memory of some obscure Muslim street celebrration, had taped it contemporaneously and then was able to find the tape.

BoKnows on December 6, 2010 at 7:24 pm

They are scum. I would never celebrate something horrible like that…no matter where the people were from or what religion they were.

Angela04 on December 6, 2010 at 8:27 pm

I saw and heard many conservatives happy with the fact the Pakistan floods killed so many. Usually religous people for some reason.

Mike on December 6, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Yeah right Mike. Keep dreaming. We already have a Norman Blitzer here. Go sell crazy somewhere else.

Skunky on December 6, 2010 at 11:09 pm

I’ve read countless comments and blog entries by Muslims from the Far East expressing joy over the forest fire in Israel, citing it as proof that Allah has punished the Jews. But I wonder if they ever said anything about Allah punishing Muslims when there was a big flood in Mecca or when pilgrims got trampled to death in Mecca.

Why am I not surprised?

And BTW – Fascist Islamists are not the “new Nazis”: they always were Nazis before Germans became – uh, German.

Just saying.

The Reverend Jacques on December 7, 2010 at 2:10 am

Debbie I’m confused

Anyone with two brain cells, knows that the Palis are happy at the damage done to Israel’s nature, but I came across an article in the Metro this morning saying that Pali firefighters had helped in putting out the fire.

Here’s the story from the AP:

Now the thing is PM Netanyahu called Abbas up to thank him! Is this a PR effort of the Palis to try and make it seem like they are good people? If so, why is PM Netanyahu playing their game???

Debbie, I’m a fan and I’d love to repost, but you’re not giving us credible sources. My friends might say you made it all up out of thin air.

V: With “fans” like you, who need enemies? By the way, the rest of the world knows to click on links (something apparently you haven’t discovered yet, like plumbing and electricity?), and this link goes to the Jerusalem Post, which is apparently “made up out of thin air” and not a “credible source” to a moron like you. DS

Varda on December 7, 2010 at 10:38 am

To Varda: Credible sources? The happiness of this in the Muslim world reported in the Jerusalem Post by Khalid Abu Tomeah, an Israeli ARAB reporter. Links to various Muslim sites expressing joy at the abound on the net.
