Op-Ed: Two-Timing Two-Time Oscar Winner

David Miliband, former Secretary of the United Kingdom, current president and CEO of The International Rescue Committee, said, “Israel is a strategic partner and close friend of the UK,”. But there are people in the limelight who use their positions of influence to destroy that alliance.
Case in point, “two-time Oscar-winning actress and director Emma Thompson”, who is two-timing the alliance with the State of Israel and the Jewish people. She sides with Palestinian Arabs who have been occupying the Biblical Judea and Samaria since they lost their war of aggression in 1967, but repeats the Islamic mantra that Israel is the occupier. Thompson’s acceptance of propaganda over historical documentation is an indication of either woeful or willful ignorance.
Thompson eschews Palestinian Arab terrorism, the murder and mayhem against Israeli children on school buses or asleep in their beds, and prefers a fabricated Palestinian victimhood that captivates UN and world attention through generations and provides them with enormous financial support - “one of the highest levels of aid in the world”
To maintain their free medical care from Israel and financial aid from the US, UK, UN, Europe and Israel, Palestinian Arabs utterly destroyed, with “no hope of repair,” the extensive and profitable greenhouses and infrastructure in the Gaza Strip so generously left them by the departing Israelis in 2005.
Why is Thompson oblivious to Jewish Jerusalem for more than 3,400 years, a Jewish city more than 2000 years before the followers of Muhammed began their deadly advance across the Middle East in 624, raping, enslaving and killing?
Why ignore the seven neighboring Islamic armies that joined together to completely annihilate the new State of Israel in 1948, and the Six-Day War they caused in 1967 after weeks of bloodchilling threats, which they also lost?
Why ignore that the fleeing Arabs assumed a new identity, “Palestinians,” for the sole purpose of creating a bond to land that was never theirs?
Why does she disregard the corps called the "Jewish Palestinian Brigade" that fought with the English against the Nazis, and instead sides with the Arabs who fought with the Nazis against England’s forces? Is this not two-timing?
How does Thompson conclude that Israel’s home construction is illegal without legal evidence? Israel showed her goodwill by ceding Sinai Peninsula to Egypt, Gaza to the Palestinian Arabs, part of the 'West Bank' to Jordan – all in exchange for the hope of peace. Still the defeated Arabs who declared, “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel” at Khartoum in 1967, continued to believe so, and the sacrificed land became another launching pad for rockets against the Jewish people.
How many more concessions would Thompson demand from a country that is already 1/1000th the size of Islam’s landmass, with 1.4 billion combatants ready to die for conquest compared to Israel’s eight million citizens, including Israeli Arabs, eager to live?
If Thompson believes “to the vanquished, not the victor, go the spoils,” will she then consider offering England to the Nazis? And would she advocate that Muslims return the land they conquered over 1400 years?
According to Raymond Ibrahim,a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum, that includes tens of thousands of Arabs in Arabia who were killed or converted in the “Ridda Wars” (Apostasy Wars) that ended in 634; Syria in 636; Egypt in 641; Mesopotamia and the Persian Empire in 650; North Africa, Spain, Central Asia and India by the early 8th century.
Would she advocate that Muslims restore other civilizations, centuries later, to such as Indonesia, Somalia, the Philippines?
This was not the willing conversion that is being taught and glorified in our textbooks, but conquest by warfare – threats, humiliation, enslavement and bloodshed.
Thompson could have done some minor Internet investigation to uncover more about Islamic Jihad:
The Encyclopaedia of Islam's entry for "jihad" states that the "spread of Islam by arms is a religious duty upon Muslims in general … Jihad must continue to be done until the whole world is under the rule of Islam … Islam must completely be made over before the doctrine of jihad can be eliminated." Scholar Majid Khadurri (1909-2007), after defining jihad as warfare, writes that jihad "is regarded by all jurists, with almost no exception, as a collective obligation of the whole Muslim community."
Might she then have become aware of Islam’s history of war and subjugation of Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, and all the turmoil and danger they present in whichever country they have immigrated? The reality is that Islam is at war with the rest of the world in its religious duty to bring all to Islam.
These ununiformed warriors have already invaded the British Isles, stirring up old bigotry and hatred to divide and conquer, using a fallacious plot to convince the English, Irish and Scottish to boycott a peaceful ally, Israel, and support the tyrannical regimes of the Middle East. “First come Saturday people, then come Sunday people.” The uneducated have been convinced to turn against their own survival instincts.
- Military Jihad, using all types of arms – bombings and rockets by the thousands against Israel, burning African Christian churches, local bombings such as New York’s Twin Towers, London’s underground, Chechnya’s school children, and the Boston marathon.
- Immigration Jihad, including the major immigration experienced in the US, Europe’s mainland, and the UK, establishing their own schools and mosques to keep their children from assimilating.
- Population Jihad, maintaining polygamy and many children to overwhelm the host country, and debilitating the economy by excessive social aid.
- Intellectual Jihad, using Islamic propaganda machines to spread the acceptance of Islam. Speakers who visit universities, libraries and social groups, using interruptions and filibustering to inhibit the audience’s power of reasoning. Forcing groups to boycott Israel’s books, theater, and scientific exchanges, etc.
- Economic Jihad, holding the West hostage through the use of fossil fuels. Profits from gasoline purchases finance the Islamic military and all facets of Jihad.
- Political Jihad, advancing Islam politically, forcing governments to assert that Islam is a religion of peace; stirring old ideologies and providing common vulnerabilities to revive Jew-hatred, Israel being the first level of a Western delegitimization. Overwhelming a naïve Bishop of Canterbury to gain acceptance of Sharia.
- Religious Jihad, using freedom of religion and tolerant religious leaders to advance Islam, while other religions are forbidden in Islamic countries. Destroying antiquities of past cultures on the continent and defacing Jewish holy sites and declaring them mosques.
Add to these:
Lawfare Jihad: The use of international law to attack or condemn a rival country (Israel). This includes legal battles, with UN collusion, to claim Judea and Samaria to be the Palestinian and claim the Temple Mount to be a mosque since “time immemorial”; to stifle journalists with threats of lawsuits; to force the UK to betray an ally, to erode the will to fight and delegitimize any self-defense; to subvert human rights protections and peaceful coexistence. Using the host’s court system to accept the construction of numerous mosques (misinterpreting US Constitutional) and accepting foreign laws (Sharia).
These, combined with unwitting ignorance, increase the chances of succumbing to Islamic control.
When we allow Islamists to use our tolerance and legal system against us – to accommodate Muslims with public prayer rooms and footbaths, to meet demands by the Saudi-tied Muslim Student Unions to anti-Israel rallies, to oblige terrorists in prison, to call jihad attacks “workplace violence,” to publicly funded madrassas, to bypass noise ordinances and accept prayer calls five times a day, to limit our access to entertainment and scholarship and accept Saudi-vetted books and customs, to sever ties with peaceful partners, this is welcoming Islamic Jihad.
As long as the Emma Thompsons of this world continue to look away from evil, allow their news media to protect Islam and misinform the public, and do Islam’s bidding with boycotts, etc., then by their own hand will they change the nature of the United Kingdom to the despotism of the United Caliphate.
Adolph Hitler knew, “Propaganda … has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.” And the friendship between the Fuhrer and Grand Mufti of Jerusalem ensured that the Muslims learned well.
