The Palestinian propaganda machine together with its friends in the west have been ripping off the Jewish people for decades. They seek to revise our history in the most devious and underhand manner with the concept of Nakba (a 'catastrophe' for them because they lost a war to exterminate us) and with odious comparisons between the suffering of Jews in the Holocaust and the way they perceive they have been treated in the six decades since Israel became an independent state.
Palestinian refugees are kept in squalid camps and are refused basic human rights by their hosts so that for generations the people have been used as political pawns in a war against the Jews. The war is fought from inside populated areas and they attack non-combatants but when Israel creates a security barrier to keep these murderers out they cry 'apartheid' - yet another one of their nasty untruths. Israel is in negotiation with the Palestine Authority to resolve all differences between the sides; it ended its occupation of Gaza two and a half years ago and its citizens were attacked from the territory it left. But that's not enough for some people.
The latest rip off is the traditional parade held by Jews to celebrate the Festival of Purim which takes place tomorrow. In the photographs displayed here, local Palestinians and their supporters are shown lining up outside the Crown Casino on Tuesday evening in true Purim spirit and parading as a travelling freak show. The award for the best and freakiest in the parade would go to the bearded people in the photographs below.
These people are rabid in their senseless attacks on Israel and the Jews. Some in the crowd openly yelled out anti-Semitic comments at arriving guests while presumably, the few Jews among them stood shtum - silent. And their banners, like the one below make no sense to anyone (unless they happen to be the therapists of the sad individuals carrying them). The ludicrous comparison of Israel with Apartheid has been well and truly debunked here: Franchising Apartheid
I am reliably informed that a small number of those who took part in the parade are or were once Jews. This fits in nicely with the concept of betrayal that lies within the story of Purim. One price they are paying for the betrayal of their people and the attempted theft of its history is the fact that they find themselves part of this obnoxious parade of freaks.
FOOTNOTE: At least one of the small number of Jewish protesters on Tueday night was Alex Nissen (I'm not sure if it's a he or a she) and it would come as a surprise to nobody that this person is one of the signatories to the infamous Nakba Advertisement which appeared in last week's Australian. Two of her co-signatories are co-authors of a letter in the current edition of the Australian Jewish News which will go down in history as one of the worst attempts to backflip and regain face in the history of the Jewish community in this country. LAntony Loewenstein and Peter Slezak along with James Levey are all of Sydney but really, they would have been right at home with this crowd in Melbourne last Tuesday night.
