Every now and then, when I need a break from reality, I go and look up what the various Arab governments are saying. And while it’s always a variant of the same — the Jews are responsible for everything bad — it’s always entertaining to see what new twist they’ll put on the old story.
From the inestimable Charles Johnson, we have this story about an Egyptian professor who went on Saudi State Television to announce that there was not a shred of Muslim involvement in the 9/11 attacks. You see, all the evidence pointing to Mohammed Atta, Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and the like was all fabricated by the REAL perpetrators of the atrocity.
And who were these brilliant, sinister, evil people? “I believe a dirty Zionist hand carried out this act.”
I suppose those same dirty Zionist hands also arranged for the Palestinians to “spontaneously” burst into cheers and celebrations when it happened, and for Saddam Hussein to order a mural made showing him celebrating the attacks. DARN those diabolical Zionists!
It’s pretty much a given that as Israel pulls out of Gaza, the withdrawing settlers and soldiers will be fired upon. After all, one can’t claim that they “drove the Zionists out of our homeland” if you don’t take at least a couple of token shots. But when the inevitable happens, and the inevitable Israeli counterstrike happens, it’ll all be the Jews’ fault, because those people shooting are really disguised Jews, hoping to trigger the “backlash.”
And if the predicted internecine violence erupts, as various Palestinian factions fight for the credit and for control of Gaza, and as old scores that festered, suppressed, under Israeli occupation are finally settled, it won’t be Palestinians killing other Palestinians. It’ll all be started by those terrible, awful, evil, genocidal, murderous Zionists who have gotten their hands on Palestinian clothing, Palestinian old cars, and Palestinian weapons who will be firing the first shots. Because as we all know, the Palestinians would never do something as reprehensible as killing other Palestinians.
I think the Protest Warriors really captured it. Those 13 million Jews around the world are so amazingly cunning, I’m amazed that they haven’t completely wiped out those poor, beleagured, Muslims. But they have whittled them down to a mere 1.1 billion.
