Palestinian Hate Education

Posted by: Gary Fine Updated: May 25, 2012 - 5:14 AM

 Are US taxpayer dollars used to help fund anti-US, anti-Israel hate education?  

“The Palestinians are slated to receive some 200 million dollars in U.S. security assistance after a top House Republican ended her hold on the money.  In separate letters to the State Department and USAID, Ros-Lehtinen {chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee} cited President Barack Obama certification that the funds were in the national security interests of the United States….” -N. Mozgovaya, AP, 11/7/2011

 “In a few weeks, it will be five years since the Palestinian Authority was to prepare its citizens for a two-state solution and end incitement in its educational system. Yet from pre-school through high school, Palestinian children are indoctrinated to deny Israel's legitimacy, demonize Israelis and Jews, and glorify violent struggle as a religious goal. The Palestinian government-produced textbooks and government-controlled media work in tandem to assure that Palestinian children will be no more disposed to living peacefully with Israel tomorrow than their parents are today. It's never too early to begin the hate education. Preschool television programming could be called Terrorism for Tots. Last year American viewers had a glimpse of the weekly program starring an outrageous Palestinian version of Mickey Mouse, Farfar, who in a Mickey-like voice told children to pray until there is "world leadership under Islamic leadership" “… Farfur taught the children not only the glory of violence but the mindset of victim hood and blame.….

At this moment, in classrooms in Gaza and the West Bank, in schools under Hamas control or "moderate" Fatah control, children are being poisoned with hate and distrust and readied to be warriors for the "final and inevitable result ...the victory of the Muslims over the Jews." ..With humanitarian intentions and a blind eye to what is actually written in the textbooks and shown in the media, the U.S. funds hate education. The U.S. provides funding to Palestinian education without any of the oversight it demands of American schools. I have been an educator for 31 years and know the stringent standards for accreditation and funding of schools in all fifty states. Perhaps a team of educators could set minimum requirements of pedagogy as well as a low level of tolerance for incitement towards violence, and only after the standards are met would funds commence. The money would follow performance, not promise.”-P. Shapiro,  American Thinker, 2/2/08

CUFI are Israel’s Friends in Deed

Posted by: Gary Fine Updated: May 8, 2012 - 5:48 AM

 I was honored to be in the company of Israel’s Christian “friends” Sunday evening for the CUFI (Christians United for Israel) Celebrate Israel Week biennial event at the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, MN. This celebration began Sunday evening and will conclude Wed. May 9th.  The Celebrate Israel Week event is a breathtaking experience to behold. It sets aside Jewish-Christian religious differences and an unfortunate history, in uniting the two as brothers with a common purpose and for the common good.- with the current directive being - the defense of Israel and the Jewish people against the venomous, delegitimizing and demonizing politico-media-war and terrorist war being waged against them.  As for Israel’s enemies, there is no valid nor rational reason for their vicious Nazi-style campaign, which offers no compromise nor  real peaceful resolution short of the elimination of the State of Israel.


CUFI has become the largest pro-Israel organization in the country, spanning all fifty states. Each July, many thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington D.C. to voice strong support for the State of Israel. Further, CUFI organizes a bi-annual summit in Jerusalem, bringing thousands of Christians from all corners of the globe to demonstrate solidarity with Israel.


CUFI goals include educating Christians about the “Biblical and moral imperatives” to supporting Israel; and to communicate this perspective to the media, politicians and the general public.  Their education efforts now include Campus chapters to counter the viral growth of anti-Israel bullying on University campuses nationwide, and to stem the tide of Nazi-like-anti-Israel misinformation, brainwashing student and faculty alike, that is inundating the campus setting- including our own University of Minnesota.

Faces of Israel

Posted by: Gary Fine Updated: May 4, 2012 - 3:50 PM

 Israel is often misrepresented internationally as a thorn amidst an Arabian flower garden. {Think “Arab Spring”?} Despite the inherent and real dangers this tiny democracy faces and has faced since its birth, the following video offers a rare glimpse of Israel as a “flower” of democracy.


The No Israel Solution -BDS

Posted by: Gary Fine Updated: March 30, 2012 - 5:52 AM

 BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions): a Nazi-like enterprise with a humane face.

Masked as a progressive, liberal, humanist and socialist mission, the eloquent hard-sell of the BDS spokesmen are effectively bleeding an innocent Israel, and labeling her guilty for a host of imaginary crimes. Their method strikes a parallel to the brutal Nazi tattoos which physically branded their innocent Jewish victims arms for the crime of being Jewish.

The BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions) mission is not about fairness to Palestinian Arabs, it’s about brainwashing the international community against Israel. Its’ sole aim is to destroy the democratic State of Israel and replace her with Arab States in all of Palestine.

We recently witnessed  BDS movement efforts at the University of Minnesota earlier this month with Israel Aparthed Week, a{n annual} festival of hatred and incitement organized by anti-Israel activists on university campuses in the US, Canada and other countries.-Khaled Abu Tuomeh 3/17/11

BDS revealed; see the following video:
