01. What is there to prove? Someone which even a child' mind can see that term Anti Smite is a misnomer. And to use it exclusive for Jews is mistake and nothing else. Arabs are as Semite as any blue blooded Jew of the finest genealogy. So to exclude Arabs from Ant Semite is neither logical nor reasonable.
What further proofs you need I do not know. But your insistence shows that have viruses of racism in you and not me.
02. Again linking Hizbollah and Hamas with Islamic terrorism is wrong. And if you insist, then you should also call Israeli actions as Jewish Terrorism and US actions in Iraq and Afghanistan as Christian terrorism.
Use common standard is my plea, nothing else.
It seems that you Devil's advocate after all.
Arabs and Jews are Semites because they're from the SAME family. This is why the term was coined in Europe deriving from antisemites who were against Jews having a presence in European society on the grounds that as Semites they didn't deserve such a position. I think you just ignored the link I cited that clearly shows this. I don't know why you're so adamant about crying "racism" when you then proceed to proclaim every American, Israeli or general non Muslim as such regardless of their own positions.

The US falls under international meddling and exerting too much control over the world, but the US government as such cannot be classified as a "Christian terrorist" organisation because it represents the COUNTRY, not the religion. I think the groups you are looking for include loonies like the Westboro Baptist Church. Same goes for Israel (the irony being that the majority of the country is secular, yet many [rightly] accuse the Likud dominated government of handing power and privileges to the [growing] minority of right wing ultra religious people)

And yes, I actually chose my username after the movie, not the phrase though. I didn't choose it because I liked it though, the username came to me because I was impressed with how much the movie managed to scare me.

Remembering Abu Jihad And Why, Really, The Israelis Killed Him
By Alan Hart
(9Contd.)
The following year he ordered a “General Exercise” in and around Nablus.“General Exercise” was the code for a confrontation between the PLO’s supporters and the occupying Israeli army. It was Arafat’s way of testing the feelings and mood of Palestinians throughout the Occupied Territories. The response was exactly what Arafat and Abu Jihad had predicted it would be. The confrontation in Nablus took place, but there was no support for the idea that it should be sustained and extended. A popular uprising was still the stuff of dreams.
Arafat, Abu Jihad and Hani Hassan (Arafat’s chief adviser and trouble-shooter) then conducted a detailed investigation of why the “General Exercise” had failed to inspire even a token demonstration of widespread support for the PLO.“We came to a very dramatic conclusion”, Hani told me.“We discovered that the silent majority of our people in the Occupied Territories had given their hearts if not their minds to the Islamic fundamentalists.”
What explained this enormous shift of popular opinion, a change of heart which suggested, among other things, that Arafat’s moderate PLO was in danger of becoming an irrelevance in the Occupied Territories?
Short answer - despair.
There was first of all, and obviously, the despair born of 20 years of occupation and often-brutal Israeli repression. But in the wake of Israel’s invasion of Lebanon and its siege of Beirut there were, as Hani Hassan put it,“two new factors of despair.”
The first was the realisation that Arafat’s policy of politics and compromise with Israel was getting the Palestinians nowhere.
The second, a bitter lesson for a new generation of Palestinians, was that they were on their own when the crunch came. The proof was the way the Arab regimes had sat on their backsides and watched for weeks as Sharon tried to finish the PLO in Beirut.
Against that backdrop it was inevitable that more and more Palestinians in the Occupied Territories would begin to see Islamic fundamentalism as the only force capable of changing the status quo. But what surprised and shocked Arafat and his leadership colleagues was the number of Palestinians who had moved or who were moving in the direction of the fundamentalists. Hani said:“We discovered that not less than 60 percent of our young people in the Occupied Territories were thinking that Islamic fundamentalism had more to offer than the PLO.”
The violent Islamic fundamentalism (Palestinian style) that Arafat and his leadership colleagues saw coming as the inevitable product of continuing Israeli occupation and the new wave of Palestinian resistance would be institutionalised in 1988, when Hamas was founded in Gaza by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, a paralysed, wheelchair-bound religious teacher. In Arabic Hamas means zeal. It is also an acronym for the Islamic Resistance Movement.
For Arafat the consequences of Islamic fundamentalists making the running in the Occupied Territories were terrifying.(As they ought to have been to rational Israelis). First there was the obvious danger that the PLO would become an irrelevance for a majority of Palestinians. But that was not the worst-case scenario. If there was a popular uprising, and if the Islamic fundamentalists could claim most of the credit for it, Arafat - even if the PLO did retain some credibility - might not be able to deliver the compromise that he had struggled for six years to sell to his people.
So what at the beginning of 1984 were Arafat and his leadership colleagues to do?

If you think nukes are safe in the hands of Zionists and they would not use, when they see defeat right before their eyes, then you are surely mistaken.

Why did USA used their nukes against japan, was US seeing defeat right before their eyes?

How wrong is it to say that your nukes are safe, even though you threaten every small nation now and then and they are unsafe in the hands of others who never used it.

Remembering Abu Jihad And Why, Really, The Israelis Killed Him
By Alan Hart
(contd.)

They knew they could not force the pace in the Occupied Territories and that a popular uprising would have to be spontaneous, generated from within; but they set about planning and putting into place the support networks and mechanisms that would sustain the explosion of despair - prevent Israeli’s military and other security services putting it down with speed - when it happened.

Soon after it started on 9 December 1987 the day-to-day management, direction and co-ordination of the first intifada was, in fact, taken over, as planned, by Abu Jihad, then Arafat’s deputy and most likely successor as well as commander of the PLO’s scattered and mission-less military forces.

But Arafat’s personal contribution to sustaining the uprising was significant. He had what he described to me as his “secret weapon”. From a British company (Racal-Tacticom in Reading) he had purchased some state-of-the-art, space-age radio equipment - a transmitter and scores of mini-receivers - which enabled him to plug into the Arab communications satellite (AbSat) and talk directly to Palestinian demonstrators on street corners when they were confronting the Israeli army.

Hani Hassan spoke about the impact of Arafat’s spiritual presence on the front lines in the Occupied Territories with great excitement.“You can’t imagine”, he told me.“The confrontations were very tough. Even when they were not being killed or seriously wounded (for throwing stones at Israel’s mighty warriors) our people were taking a lot of punishment. So naturally there were times when their morale was low. And that’s when Arafat lifted their spirits. Somebody would produce a receiver to link the demonstrators to him in Tunis. The one who spoke directly with him was overcome with emotion and enthusiasm. He would proudly tell the others,‘I’ve just talked to Abu Amar. He says we must continue.’”

It was, however, Abu Jihad’s oversight management and control, from the bedroom of his modest, whitewashed villa in Sidi Bou Said, a suburb to the north-east of Tunis, that prevented the Israelis from putting down the first intifada as quickly as they had assumed they could by collective punishments, arrests, torture and killing. That was why, on 16 April 1988, Israeli Special Forces went all the way to Tunis to assassinate Abu Jihad in his bedroom.

#37787 Feb 11, 2013
Though it was enclosed by a wall eight feet high, the villa occupied an exposed corner position at a road junction inside what many local people described as the “Forbidden Zone” because of its security status. The Tunisian president’s palace and the American Ambassador’s residence were almost within shouting distance of Abu Jihad’s villa. When he was looking for a family home he had been directed to the location by Tunisian officials.

They told him there was no other place where his security could be guaranteed. When the Israelis came ashore they were dressed as Tunisian security forces. They knew it was going to be an easy kill because Israeli agents had done a thorough reconnaissance job. They had discovered that Abu Jihad refused to surround himself with bodyguards of his own, in order to live as normal a life as possible with his childhood sweetheart and their children.

From Israel’s point of view Abu Jihad’s murder had the desired effect. Arafat was the man who inspired the Palestinian struggle, but Abu Jihad was the man who made it happen. Arafat was the man most respected by most Palestinians as the symbol of regenerated Palestinian nationalism, but Abu Jihad was the man the fighters and their families (the resistors of Israeli occupation) most admired. On an emotional as well as an organisational level, his murder was a huge setback for the resistance movement in the Occupied Territories.

When the first intifada started Israelis had a choice of two options. One was to continue living by the sword. The other was to say to themselves something like:“If we are not to find ourselves in a nightmare situation of our own making, we had better negotiate our way out of occupation.” There were rational Israelis who did say such things. But gut-Zionism prevailed. It was congenitally incapable of responding to the Palestinian cry for even a minimum of justice with anything but the iron fist. Greater Israel was to be strengthened and consolidated, not dismantled, even at the price of there being no peace, ever.

It was then that some of those who had done most to make a reality of Zionism’s mad dream did a most foolish thing. In the hope of weakening support for Arafat’s PLO in the Occupied Territories, they encouraged the growth of Hamas. The extent to which Israel assisted the development of Islamic fundamentalism (Palestinian style) is still a well kept secret.

In retrospect it can be said that if Israel had been willing to accept Arafat’s PLO as a negotiating partner in the mid to late 1980s, Hamas in particular, and Islamic fundamentalism in general, could not and would not have emerged as an unmanageable threat to anybody in the context of the struggle for Palestine. In that context the real recruiting sergeant of Islamic fundamentalism (Palestinian style) for resistance was Zionism’s arrogance of power and insufferable self-righteousness

You're sadly mistaken that Islam will be victorious. You don't understand what God's plan is for the world. There isn't any place in the future for Islam as it is an enemy of God's chosen nation of Israel. Israel will use the nuclear option during the coming war with both russia and her islamic allies originating just beyond the northern frontier of Israel. Read both chapters 38 and 39 of the book of Ezekiel of the Bible. Then you'll understand my perspective. The bigotry I am discussing originates from your Islamic world and kills men,women, and children. Israel just Responds to these attacks and gets criticized for defending itself. There are just a few more prophecies yet to be fulfilled before the Second coming of the Savior of the World and hence, the permanence of Israel and Jerusalem as both the capital and central city of the world. It's that simple.

The purpose of the US using 2 nukes in WW2 was to prevent further killing as the US was contemplating and planning an invasion of the Japanese mainland . Untold numbers of soldiers from both sides of the conflict were spared as well as untold numbers of Japanese men.women, and children who were non-combatants. When the US goes to war, the situation is complicated by having to achieve a favorable outcome as directed by America;s senior command as well as minimizing civilian casualties and damage to infrastructure.

You do realise the term was chosen because Arabs and Jews are from the same genetic and ethnic groups? I've repeated that several times over, though I don't know why you want to claim otherwise.

And I do think it's unfair to say that "Jews control the media" with no quantifiable evidence to point out other than a list of SOME CEOs, never mind that the news outlets that show certain stances have much more to do with political views than religion. Who would you trust more in the media, regardless of religion; a conservative or a liberal?

And I honestly cannot fathom why you consider yourself unbiased. I respond because you do not post out of any political conviction in regards to Zionism, but out of racism. Just because I have a Zionist outlook does not mean I do not support a Palestinian state or the like, you just immediately assume that. It's poor critical thinking and even worse analysis. Zionism is automatically evil in your mind despite never once considering that it's just another form of nationalism; like nay other form of nationalism, it has its pros and cons. Or the fact that the vast majority of Zionists in Israel hold left leaning policies in regards to social and ethnic issues. Zionism is seen between the left and the right, so but of course you can see there will be a contrasts.

As supporters of progressivist economics and sociopolitical development I can certainly give you an example of a party my family readily supports (though I'm not excited with how little seats it won because of Likud interference)

Euphemisms Away!
A World in Which Truth is a Dying Species

By Gaither Stewart

November 02, 2012 "Information Clearing House" - Rome - Hidden away somewhere within the labyrinth of the Pentagon there must be a top secret euphemism department engaged in the invention of the Orwellian surrogate words that have crept surreptitiously into the American English vocabulary and from there translated into many other languages. In my mind I see a unit of studiously serious executives, coffee mugs in their hands and their neckties awry, devising senseless terms for terrible things and used unthinkingly by people today from New York to California, from Maine to Texas.

The goal of my imaginary secret unit is to render ugly terms meaningless or to transform them into their opposite. To quote the perceptive Scottish writer, Candia McWilliam,“plain words are always under threat.” There are words that don’t say what they mean and there are words that say what they don’t mean.

Intensified or enhanced interrogation sounds oh so much more genteel than the hideous word TORTURE. Collateral damage goes down quite well instead of the savage bombing and strafing of a funeral procession or a wedding party. Military leaders themselves have come to love the suggestive word “footprints” to indicate the evidence of America’s powerful presence throughout the world:“We were here and we leave this little sign with you.” A little footprint, maybe a fleet of super bombers or Predator drones.

The point to keep in mind is that the names of things, issues, objects of life change, but the substance of the object itself remains—torture will always be torture, no matter what the gnomes propose and the media parrot.

Today, though generally unknown among the public, the relatively new term,“lily pad”, is making its way forward to describe not that beautiful manifestation of nature but the new version of America’s over 1000 military bases and garrisons spreading across some 150 countries of planet Earth. You can always count on those Pentagon gnomes. They regularly come up with something new. It remains unclear however if they first invent the terms and the military executes their implications or if the military experiments with a new lethal strategy and the gnomes then give it a purified label.

In the case of the “lily pad”, this linguistic version of the sheep in wolf’s clothing, was allegedly conceived to spread the U.S. footprint into every corner of our planet and to make military bases more effective and comprehensive while giving the impression that the government is both protecting “our way of life”, while also saving taxpayer money—money then used for more weapons and the hiring of more mercenaries and for payoffs to eager satraps of the Empire’s vassal states; some nations, peoples, and even minor empires can be more easily bought than subdued militarily.

WHAT IS A MILITARY LILY PAD?

Nature’s lily pad is a floating leaf of the white water lily family. The scientific name of lily pad is nymphaea odorata. You might see a bullfrog sitting on a lily pad in a pond. The lily pad does not sink under its weight. The giant water lily, victoria amazonica, has the world’s biggest lily pad, up to four feet, which can support the weight of several people at once. The lily pad lies tranquilly on the surface of the pond, offering both refuge and camouflage for the frog, protecting it from predators. The lily pad fits in with its natural surroundings, as does the frog.
