Jay's Addition to "What You Can't Discuss"

Mike L.

Well, the peoples just left and, I have to say, this was a very nice Thanksgiving.

So, I am just kinda kicking back at the end of the evening and putting up my feet looking over some of what's going on, here and there.

My heart is with the persecuted Jews of the Middle East and I am deeply saddened at the fact that Obama, and the west, will not allow Israel to honestly defend itself.

I also want to thank JayinPhiladelphia for suggesting an edition to our sidebar list of What You Can't Discuss on the Progressive-Left About the Arab-Israel Conflict.

Jay gave us number 12.

12) The fact that violent Jihadis call themselves "Jihadis" and claim to love death above life.

Quite true.

If we discuss this we are "racists."

Here's the entire list of things that we cannot discuss, despite the fact that they happen to be the case and despite the fact that they have a direct negative impact on the lives of the Jewish people:


This is a partial list of taboo topics within progressive-left venues around the Arab-Israel conflict. You cannot discuss this material because it undermines the "Palestinian narrative" of perpetual victimhood. This narrative is a club used by the Arab and Muslim enemies of Israel, along with their western progressive allies, to delegitimize that country in preparation for its eventual dissolution.

1) The centuries of Jewish dhimmitude under the boot of Islamic imperialism.

2) The recent construction of Palestinian identity, its connection to Soviet Cold War politics, and how this is an Arab people with a Roman name that refers to Greeks.

3) Arab and Palestinian Koranically-based racism as the fundamental source of the conflict.

4) The ways in which contemporary progressive anti-Zionism serves as a cloak for gross anti-Semitism.

5) The Palestinian theft and appropriation of Jewish history.

6) "Pallywood."

7) The historical connections between the Nazis, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Palestinian national movement.

8) The perpetual refusal of the Palestinian-Arabs to accept a state for themselves in peace next to the Jewish one.

9) The progressive portrayal of terrorists as those fighting a righteous war of "resistance."

10) The Arab-Palestinian indoctrination of children with Jew hatred.

11) Human rights violations against women, children, and Gay people in the Muslim Middle East.

12) The fact that violent Jihadis call themselves "Jihadis" and claim to love death above life.

This is only a partial list, so please let us know the many more that we are missing.


  1. What I said was that you cannot say the Arab side worships death more than life, even as there are so many examples of Arabs telling us the very same.

    Number twelve could simply be that Golda Meir was right.

    1. Yeah, School said this. I just agreed and suggested the addition.


    2. It is interesting how bent some people get when people quote in proper context words that were actually communicated in public or in writing.

      Perhaps if we ban such a practice it will mean the words involved were never uttered or written.

      There is an excellent article by David Keyes at Advancing Human Rights where he says:

      Instead of welcoming independent thought, Hamas has filled Gaza’s airwaves, summer camps, and schools with the most incendiary rhetoric imaginable. Children are taught a mix of unremitting hatred and wild conspiracy. Perhaps most troubling is glorification of death. Hamas leaders like Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh proudly declare that “death for the sake of Allah is our most supreme desire.” The deputy speaker of the Hamas parliament, Ahmad Bahr, explicates a hadith by saying, “When a man is having sex with his wife, he should be praying for a son who would wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” Of Americans and Israelis, he adds, “They are cowards, who are eager for life, while we are eager for death for the sake of Allah.” How can children in Gaza love life over death when their leaders teach the opposite?

    3. Thanks school, have to read that when I get home...

  2. LOL. SOMEONE has way too much spare time.

    1. Ain't that just like a Zionist to change the subject! ;-P

    2. Better keep the axes away from this one.

      all work and no play makes mordred a dull boy. All work and no play makes mordred a DULL BOY. All work and no PLAY MAKES mordred a dull boy...

      Etc etc...

    3. Mordred X is banned.

      There is no way that I am going to allow someone to spread hatred toward Jews on my own website.

      It's interesting how all this works, btw.

      Hamas sends hundreds of rockets into Israel and no one says a word.

      Israel finally responds and then western "progressives" come crawling out of the woodwork to denounce Jews as Nazis.

      It's both grotesque and sadistic.
