Israel ‘supplied arms to Argentina during Falklands War’

ok… and… good… I am no fan of Argentina’s claims to the Falklands, but you sabotage the enemy.
Air to air missiles, missile radar alert systems, fuel tanks for fighter bombers and gas masks were dispatched from Israel apparently destined for Peru but were then transported on to Argentina, it claims.
As the British Task Force sent to reclaim the islands after the 1982 Argentine invasion of the Falklands began to get the upper hand, Argentina’s ruling military junta was left with few choices from which to source replacements for equipment lost in war.
But according to ‘Operation Israel: the rearming of Argentina during the dictatorship (1976/1983)’ the junta found that Begin was willing to strike an agreement.
Interviews conducted by the author of the book, the Argentine journalist Hernan Dobry, reveal that Begin saw the deals as a form of revenge for the hanging of a personal friend, Dov Gruner, by the British Mandatory Authorities in Palestine in 1947.
After the Argentine Air Force contacted Isrex, the Israeli defence company, a meeting was arranged between representatives of the company and Begin.

let that be a lesson to the U.K. today. Israel will get it’s hands dirty to survive… or at least I certainly would hope so.

Melanie Phillips: How I became a hate ’suspect’

April 1, 2011

For a moment I thought it was a Purim spiel. The Guardian devoted an entire story last weekend to the claim that I was being investigated by both the Press Complaints Commission and the police. The Bedfordshire police.
My crime apparently lay in what I had written on my Spectator blog about the massacre of Udi and Ruth Fogel and their three children, 11-year-old Yoav, four-year-old Elad and three-month-old Hadas, who had their throats cut at home in the Samarian neighbourhood of Itamar while most of them were asleep.
I had written about the moral depravity of the Arabs who almost certainly committed this atrocity – and also the savagery of the Palestinian Authority whose institutions incite hatred of Jews and the murder of Israelis, and which honours such murderers by naming streets and squares after them.
The complaint was that I had thus accused every single Arab in the world of being savage and depraved. This was totally absurd. As was obvious from the context, I was referring specifically to those Arabs behind the atrocity and those who incite and glorify such deeds.
The complainants also airbrushed out of the picture the unstoppable torrent of deranged, Nazi-style vilification of Jews which pours out of the Arab and Muslim world and which fuels the genocidal hysteria behind such attacks.
All of this, plus the fact that the Arab world has been murdering Jews in the land of Israel for more than nine decades in order to drive them out, means that to refer to ‘Arab moral depravity’ is more than justified.
To tar this as a racist slur against every single Arab is as absurd as to claim that referring to the moral depravity of the Germans or Japanese in the 1940s is a racist slur against every single German or Japanese individual.
And what on earth had this got to do with the Bedfordshire police? You may well ask. A clue was surely provided by the Muslim activist, Inayat Bunglawala, one of the PCC complainants, who raged that I had defamed the entire Arab people.
Bunglawala lives in Luton, Bedfordshire. Might it be, therefore, that Bunglawala had gone to his local plods to complain? I don’t know why otherwise the Bedfordshire police would be asked to avenge this alleged insult to the entire Arab nation.
But, at the time of writing, I have not heard that either the police or the PCC is in fact investigating these complaints. It would appear that the Guardian simply took what Bunglawala told them and published it as fact.
Moreover, for Bunglawala to accuse me of racism is a sick joke. For he has serious form as a Jew-hater. In his younger days he described the TV executives Michael Green, Michael Grade and Alan Yentob as all belonging to ‘the tribe of Judah’ whose close friendship gave the lie to a ‘free media’.
He also claimed that the ‘Zionist movement’ was ‘at the core of international banking and commerce’. Ed Husain, in his book, The Islamist, describes how Bunglawala used to take him to weekly meetings of Muslim extremists where Jew-bashing was ‘part of the curriculum’.
Hate-crime legislation, which has turned the police into a thin blue inquisition against dissent, provides such people with the means to smear their chosen targets, and encourages them to try to silence views with which they disagree.
This is given rocket-fuel by the current frenzy of demonisation, dehumanisation and delegitimisation against Israel.
And the leader of this baying media mob is the Guardian, whose reporting of the Itamar massacre claimed that the Fogel family were ‘hard-line settlers’ a comment that insinuates that they were responsible for their own slaughter.
Such malevolent indifference to Israeli victimisation is matched by the paper’s excitement at the chance to smear the person who protests at the moral depravity of both the culture that produces such acts and those westerners who endorse it.
My impression that I had wandered on to the set of a surrealist Bunuel film deepened with an attack from a quite different direction.
According to the anti-Islam site, Jihadwatch, I was in hot water because I had referred to the Fogel family murderers as depraved Arabs, whereas I should have referred to them instead as depraved Muslims.
And the reason I had not done that was — wait for it — that I suffered from ‘lingering’ political correctness.
Don’t tell the Guardian: it might get in the way of the hate.

Turkey’s Islamists Order Police Searches of Opposition Leaders. English courts cater to Islamists

March 4, 2011

BRITISH PAPER TO PAY COMPENSATION
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan won the lawsuit he filed against the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph on charges that they insulted him.
A British high court ruled that the newspaper did not ground its allegations in evidence and that the story was inaccurate. The court ordered the British daily to pay compensation worth 25,000 British pounds to Prime Minister Erdoğan.

TURKISH POLICE SEARCH HOMES OF JOURNALISTS
Turkish police on Thursday raided the homes of several people, including journalists and a former intelligence officer, as part of a crackdown on an alleged gang accused of conspiring to topple the government, the Associated Press reports.
The raids come two weeks after a court jailed three journalists who were affiliated with the dissident web site, Oda TV. Critics say freedom of the press is under attack in the country and the United States has expressed concern over media freedom. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has denied any government attempt to silence journalists.
The European Union and the Committee of Protect Journalists have accused Turkey of suppressing critical news and commentary on the alleged anti-government conspiracy. About 400 people, including journalists, politicians, academics and retired military officers are on trial accused of being part of the so-called Ergenekon network, which allegedly tried to overthrow Erdoğan’s government in 2003.
Police were searching computers, notes and books of the journalists, including Ahmet Şık who already faces prosecution for co-writing a critical book about the crackdown on the so-called Ergenekon network, NTV reported.
Police had reportedly discovered a draft manuscript by Şık on one of the computers seized in last month’s raid on Oda TV several websites said. The draft allegedly focuses on the religious groups within the police force.
Nedim Şener, an investigative reporter for Milliyet and Posta newspapers, and Doğan Yurdakul, who occasionally writes for Oda TV, were among the targeted journalists along with a renowned hard-line secularist and leftist writer Yalçın Küçük, NTV said.
The Ergenekon case started in June 2007 with the discovery of 27 hand grenades in a shanty house belonging to a retired noncommissioned officer. The finding has led to scores of arrests and put nearly 200 journalists, writers, military personnel, gang leaders, scholars, businessmen and politicians in detention in what has become a terror investigation to stop the alleged ultra-nationalist gang. In the later stages of the investigation, those in custody have been accused of planning to topple the government by staging a coup, initially by spreading chaos and mayhem.
