Boycott the New York Times

Israel Tenenbaum was expendable, if the NYTimes is to be the source of information on his murderer.

Giulio Meotti

The article, Remaking a Life, After Years in an Israeli Prison (Jodi Rudoren, NYTimes, March 29, 2014) is about Muqdad Salah, one of the Palestinian Arab terrorists freed from Israeli jails as part of the American-brokered “peace talks” that started last summer.

The New York Times did say that Salah killed Israel Tenenbaum, a Holocaust survivor and security guard at a beach hotel in Netanya, hitting him on the side of the head with a metal rod.

But it doesn’t call him a “terrorist”, while it describes his biography as problematic in a shameful display of moral equivalence between an elderly Holocaust survivor and a subhuman terrorist who slaughtered the former in cold blood.

The New York Times, by telling us the daily routine of a veteran of terror and by presenting his “version” of the events, consistently downplays the genocidal anti-Semitism and corrosive hatred that governs Hamas and Fatah, described therein as “militant” groups concerned with the social welfare of Palestinian Arabs and their families.

“Mr. Salah” says the article without a trace of irony, “was flush with more than $100,000 saved from the Palestinian Authority’s monthly payments to prisoners’ families. He remodeled and refurnished his mother’s home. He bulldozed the rocky slope out back and built a 2,400-square-foot pen for livestock. He invested in a Nablus money-changing storefront in December, and, last month, bought his first car, a silver 2007 Kia Pride.”

The New York Times dispatches from Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarem and Bethlehem during the Second Intifada could have been written about the Taliban terrorists in the Afghan caves of Tora Bora. These articles depicted the Palestinian terrorists as freedom fighters meeting their noble fate.

The goal of this most recent article is to continue to humanize and exculpate Arab-Islamic Palestinian terrorists who commit atrocities against Jews and stimulate the ever-increasing genocidal Arab fantasies and expectations.

Read the article about the butcher of Tenenbaum again, and you will understand that the New York Times‘ Jew hatred is not hidden nor does it need to be deciphered. It is blatant. It is a poison which manipulates not only what happened, but also the natural feelings of horror and revenge it must stimulate in readers. Assassins are rewarded.

Read the subtle slant of so many New York Times articles, the photos used or omitted.

The only things more repugnant than the glorification of terrorism are all the ignorant fellow Jews who subscribe, who support and who finance the “Grey Nazi”. Like the Sulzbergers.

If you treat Holocaust survivors killed by terrorists as a mere footnote to a narrative of Palestinian innocence and redemption, I intend to boycott you. Readers should do the same as I have with the New York Times and its Jewish collaborators.

Boycott this newspaper.

How Islam’s Drug Trade is Destroying Cities and Countries

Iran has a serious drug problem. Afghanistan is a serious drug problem. What happens when they overlap? Hell on earth.

The number of drug users in Afghanistan is estimated to be as high as 1.6 million, or about 5.3 percent of the population, among the highest rates in the world. Nationwide, one in 10 urban households has at least one drug user, according to a recent report from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs. In the city of Herat, it is one in five.

From 2005 to 2009, the use of opiates doubled, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, putting Afghanistan on par with Russia and Iran, and the number of heroin users jumped more than 140 percent. Most drug experts think the rate of drug use has only increased since then.

“This is a tsunami for our country,” said Dr. Ahmad Fawad Osmani, the director of drug demand reduction for the Ministry of Public Health. “The only thing our drug production has brought us is one million drug users.”

In rural areas, the problem is expected to be worse. In some villages, the rate of drug use is as high as 30 percent of the population, based on hair, urine and saliva samples taken by the authors of the urban study. And drugs not traditionally in wide use here, including crystal methamphetamine, are now figuring in the problem as well.

The head of the counternarcotics ministry in Herat says there are 60,000 to 70,000 addicts in the province, though some health officials figure the number is closer to 100,000. In the capital, roughly 8 percent of the population uses drugs, the new international report found.

Long a staging area for men who work as day laborers in Iran, Islam Qala is now also a frequent waypoint for addicts returning to Herat. Most of the men say they picked up their habits while in Iran. The authorities there, struggling to deal with a widespread drug crisis of their own, are quick to banish Afghan addicts back across the border by the thousands, and the deported people stream back into Islam Qala six days a week.

In Herat’s capital, addicts fill the streets and parks, begging from pedestrians and motorists with relentless persistence. Pockets of the city have been transformed into junkie ghettos, like Kamar Kulagh, a roadside slum of sandbags, rocks and rags.

On a recent day, the faint outline of figures crawled through the bleached landscape, situated to the side of a highway on the northern edge of the city. Broken glass covered the hillside leading down to the encampment.

Azim Niazi, 30, shuffled through the village clutching two bags bulging with empty bottles, recycling them to pay for a drug habit that he said he had picked up as a laborer in Iran.

Wahid Ahmad, 27, who said he had been living there since he was deported from Iran two years ago, joined him.

Though many of the addicts in Herat came by way of Iran and Islam Qala, others decided to stay nearer the border — or are simply unable to make their own way anymore.

“His friend will die tomorrow,” said Mr. Niazi, pointing to a man, a skeleton cloaked in skin, lying in a sliver of shade nearby.

Left unmentioned in the New York Times story is that Afghanistan was an Islamic country and Iran is an Islamic country and their rulers found the drug trade convenient.

The drug trade helps fund Islamic terrorism and spreads its dealers/agents around the world. But it also backfires, spreading around at home and making a mockery of Islamic values.

Islamic terrorist groups need easy drug money, but dealers are often the first to get addicted to their own product and even when the fighters don’t come down with addictions, the production leads to local sales.

The Soviet Union dreamed of using drugs to subvert Western societies. It had some success, but Russian drug use rates are horrifying. Drug use has been traditionally widespread in Muslim societies anyway as a consequence of banning alcohol, but their role in the international drug trade has made things that much worse.

Factor in Islamic terrorist groups whom it’s sometimes hard to tell if they’re drug dealers occasionally playing terrorists or terrorists playing drug dealers, and things get truly nasty.

”The entire region is addicted, whole villages,” Islam Qala elder Arbah Shahabuddin says.

At one home, a woman answers the door and runs to get her husband, Dad Mohammad, who was getting high. Mr Mohammad, 35, says he has been using heroin for seven years.

His wife, Bibi Gul, complains that her husband beats her every day and takes money from their children to feed his addiction.

Mr Mohammad just stares into the distance, smiling.

This is your country. This is your country on Islam.

Canada: Iranian Man Tried to Board Plane With Bomb Materials

Iranian-born Canadian citizen attempted to board plane with bomb-making materials, motive unknown.

 

An Iranian-born Canadian citizen trying to board a plane was arrested Sunday morning, after bomb-making materials were discovered in his carry-on bag.

A routine inspection found that 71 year old Antony Piazza, who changed his name 27 years ago from Houshang Nazemi, had materials in the pull-out handle of his carry-on that could be used to make an explosive charge.

The incident occurred at Montreal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport where Piazza was attempting to board a Los Angeles bound plane.

Montreal police are puzzled by the suspect’s motives. The New York Times reported a statement released by the police on Monday noting he had no accomplice, nor was he working on behalf of any organization.

Louis P. Morena, Piazza’s lawyer, says his client told him he was carrying the bag for someone else, without specifying whom.

Morena, speaking to reporters, said regarding the material Piazza was carrying: “They’re talking about bullets, they’re talking about powder, they’re talking about wire, they’re talking about briquette.”

Hours after the arrest, police searched Piazza’s apartment in the LaSalle neighborhood of Montreal, as reported by website Shalom Toronto. Part of the neighborhood was closed by police for several hours during the investigation.

Piazza is charged with possession of explosives, attempting to bring explosives on a civilian plane, and disturbing public order. If found guilty he is liable to serve up to 10 years in prison.

This is not the first run-in with the law for the Iranian immigrant. In 1985, he was given ten years’ imprisonment for smuggling heroin, and in 1992 he was found guilty of fraud.

In a 2006 interview with Montreal-based French-language newspaper La Presse, Piazza, going by his original name of Nazemi, said he fled Iran in 1979 to escape the Islamic Revolution, and in Montreal opened a video rental store for fellow exiles nostalgic for the days of the Shah.
