“It is my duty to prevent anyone from credibly threatening or executing another Holocaust

“The Jews are a peculiar people: Things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews. Other nations drive out thousands,
even millions of people, and there is no refugee problem. Russia did it. Poland and Czechoslovakia did it.
Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchmen. Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese
–and no one says a word about refugees.
But in the case of Israel, the displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees. Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single Arab.
Arnold Toynbee calls the displacement of the Arabs an atrocity greater than any committed by the Nazis.
Other nations when victorious on the battlefield dictate peace terms. But when Israel is victorious it must sue for peace.
Everyone expects the Jews to be the only real Christians in this world.” ~Eric Hoffer
“Laws alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views

Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of.
He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.
His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine,
and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.
He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him.
He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.
The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away;
the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time,
but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished.
The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts,
no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.
All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains.
What is the secret of his immortality?” ~ Mark Twain
If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations…
They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews.” ~ John Adams

“For the first time in 1,000 years not a single Jew remains in the Jewish Quarter. Not a single building remains intact.
This makes the Jews’ return here impossible. I knew that the Jewish Quarter was densely populated with Jews who caused their fighters
a good deal of interference and difficulty….
Only four days after our entry into Jerusalem the Jewish Quarter had become their graveyard. Death and destruction reigned over it.”
~ Abdullah el-Talal, a commander of the Muslim invaders

Surely, that is not too much to ask.” ~José María Aznar
“I think that the majority of people, not only inside the Likud, but also within the Israeli public, will not support such a dangerous initiative,”

Time is growing short for you to be spared.” ~ Ze’ev Jabotinsky, 1938

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome …”

‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel’.

“The Jew is that sacred being who has brought down from heaven the

“The Jew gave us the Outside and the Inside – our outlook and our inner
life. We can hardly get up in the morning or cross the street without being
Jewish. We dream Jewish dreams and hope Jewish hopes. Most of our best
words, in fact – new, adventure, surprise, unique, individual, person,
vocation, time, history, future, freedom, progress, spirit, faith, hope,
justice – are the gifts of the Jews.”
~Thomas Cahill, Irish Author
“One of the gifts of the Jewish culture to Christianity is that it has
taught Christians to think like Jews, and any modern man who has not
learned to think as though he were a Jew can hardly be said to have learned

member of the House of Lords
“It is certain that in certain parts of the world we can see a peculiar
people, separated from the other peoples of the world and this is called
the Jewish people….
This people is not only of remarkable antiquity but has also lasted for a
singular long time… For whereas the people of Greece and Italy, of
Sparta, Athens and Rome and others who came so much later have perished so
long ago, these still exist, despite the efforts of so many powerful kings
who have tried a hundred times to wipe them out, as their historians
testify, and as can easily be judged by the natural order of things over
such a long spell of years. They have always been preserved, however, and
their preservation was foretold… My encounter with this people amazes
~Blaise Pascal, French Mathematician

“Indeed it is difficult for all other nations of the world to live in the
presence of the Jews. It is irritating and most uncomfortable. The Jews
embarrass the world as they have done things which are beyond the
imaginable. They have become moral strangers since the day their
forefather, Abraham, introduced the world to high ethical standards and to
the fear of Heaven. They brought the world the Ten Commandments, which many
nations prefer to defy.. They violated the rules of history by staying
alive, totally at odds with common sense and historical evidence. They
outlived all their former enemies, including vast empires such as the
Romans and the Greeks. They angered the world with their return to their
homeland after 2000 years of exile and after the murder of six million of
their brothers and sisters.
They aggravated mankind by building, in the wink of an eye, a democratic
State which others were not able to create in even hundreds of years. They
built living monuments such as the duty to be holy and the privilege to
serve one’s fellow men.
They had their hands in every human progressive endeavour, whether in
science, medicine, psychology or any other discipline, while totally out of
proportion to their actual numbers. They gave the world the Bible and even
Jews taught the world not to accept the world as it is, but to transform
it, yet only a few nations wanted to listen. Moreover, the Jews introduced
the world to one God, yet only a minority wanted to draw the moral
consequences. So the nations of the world realize that they would have been
lost without the Jews.. And while their subconscious tries to remind them
of how much of Western civilization is framed in terms of concepts first
articulated by the Jews, they do anything to suppress it.
They deny that Jews remind them of a higher purpose of life and the need to
be honourable, and do anything to escape its consequences.. It is simply
too much to handle for them, too embarrassing to admit, and above all, too
difficult to live by.
So the nations of the world decided once again to go out of ‘their’ way in
order to find a stick to hit the Jews. The goal: to prove that Jews are as
immoral and guilty of massacre and genocide as some of they themselves are.
All this in order to hide and justify their own failure to even protest
when six million Jews were brought to the slaughterhouses of Auschwitz and
Dachau; so as to wipe out the moral conscience of which the Jews remind
them, and they found a stick.
Nothing could be more gratifying for them than to find the Jews in a
struggle with another people (who are completely terrorized by their own
leaders) against whom the Jews, against their best wishes, have to defend
themselves in order to survive. With great satisfaction, the world allows
and initiates the rewriting of history so as to fuel the rage of yet
another people against the Jews. This in spite of the fact that the nations
understand very well that peace between the parties could have come a long
time ago, if only the Jews would have had a fair chance. Instead, they
happily jumped on the wagon of hate so as to justify their jealousy of the
Jews and their incompetence to deal with their own moral issues.
When Jews look at the bizarre play taking place in The Hague , they can
only smile as this artificial game once more proves how the world
paradoxically admits the Jews’ uniqueness. It is in their need to undermine
the Jews that they actually raise them.
The study of history of Europe during the past centuries teaches us one
uniform lesson: That the nations which received and in any way dealt fairly
and mercifully with the Jew have prospered; and that the nations that have
tortured and oppressed them have written out their own curse.”
~Olive Schreiner, South African novelist and social activist
“If there is any honour in all the world that I should like, it would be to
