Quote of the Day: Mohammad Hammad

Michael L.

In honor of Mr. Hammad we are starting a new feature here at Israel Thrives imaginatively called "The Quote of the Day."

I think that we may end up getting a few more from Mr. Hammad going forward, but we shall see.  The real point is, though, to show the kind of thing that we face.  The hatred, the propaganda, the lies, the lack of any historical context.

Here is the quote taken from an Algemeiner article on November 26.
You know what? 
Israelis ARE colonizers, there is literally no way around it 
And you know what else? 
My heroes HAVE always killed colonizers 
I literally see nothing wrong with this and my only regret is that not all colonizers were killed  
- Mohammad Hammad, president of San Francisco State University's General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS)
Does anyone for even an instant believe that when Hammad refers to Israelis that he means Israeli Arabs?  Of course, not.  He clearly means Jews.  It could hardly be more obvious.

The real problem is that Hammad, and many millions of others, have been taught the Big Lie by Arab and Soviet propagandists that has now become "common knowledge."  They honestly think that the Holocaust survivors who fought to get into Israel after World War II, whose ancestors had lived on that land two thousand years before the Arab invasion, are insidious "colonizers."

This is why it is imperative to discuss the long Arab war against the Jews in the Middle East within the historical context of Arab-Muslim imperialism and colonization throughout that the part of the world and the subjugation of its native peoples under the repressive boot of dhimmitude.

Until such a time as the Jewish community, both diasporic and Israeli, figure out that discussing the conflict within the context of Jewish history under thirteen centuries of Arab and Persian rule is the only way that we can make our case, we will constantly get little monsters like Mr. Hammad screeching for Jewish blood.

What people need to understand is that the movement for Jewish liberation was a movement by a long subjugated people for freedom from the violent domination of the Arab-Muslim majority; a movement that succeeded well beyond anyone's imagination in 1948.

The truth of the matter is that it is not the Jews who are "colonizers" in the Middle East, but the Arabs, themselves, who colonized that part of the world and often did so in an exceedingly brutal fashion after the death of Muhammed in the 7th century.

Certainly the Jewish experience under Muslim rule was generally horrific.

For thirteen long centuries throughout the Muslim Middle East an Arab could bludgeon a Jew, but it was illegal for the Jew to fight back.  We had no means of self-defense.  We had virtually no access to a judicial system.  We were not allowed to ride horses in certain places.  We were sometimes not even allowed out of our homes on rainy days so as not to pollute the streets with our alleged Jewish filth.

What Mr. Hammad needs to learn is that those days are over.

The Day of the Dhimmi is Done and the Jews are now a free people.


  1. More than 3/5ths of all Israelis are 'sephardic' e.g. Mahgrebi or Mizrazi Jews from North Africa, the Mideast or Iran. They were refugees ethnically cleansed from Arab-Persian lands both BEFORE and after Israel's founding.

  2. "To begin, though Palestinian propagandists love to characterize Zionism (that is, Jewish nationalism) and the re-establishment of Israel in 1948 as colonial enterprises, it is the Jews who are aboriginal to the Holy Land. Alone among other nations, Jews’ language, history, culture and folklore were born and forged in the Holy Land. There is no statute of limitations on being indigenous. Accordingly, to claim the Jews are colonizers in the Holy Land delegitimizes all indigenous peoples because such attempts trivialize the unbreakable, maternal ties to the land that make us, like the Jews, indigenous.

    In stark contrast, Arabs arrived to the Holy Land only in the seventh century, when Arabian armies colonized the Middle East.


    Tellingly, Palestinians are silent with respect to the rights of indigenous peoples still dominated by Arab states from Morocco to Iraq."

  3. This is a really good read for me, Must admit that you are one of the best bloggers I ever saw. Thanks for posting this informative article.
    Horse Stable Suppliers in Australia which provide you varieties of horse stables of unique modular design

    1. Horse Stable Suppliers?!




      Horse Stable Suppliers?!

      Normally I would just delete this comment as spam, but it cracks me up!

      I don't know, maybe I have a somewhat quirky sense of humor, but this tickles me.

      Horse Stable Suppliers, my tush.

    2. Don't youze guys see the significance in this?

      We've gone from riding donkeys side-saddle, to being sold homes for our horses on our own websites!

    3. As it happens it was just about due for the summer fit out of the stable of my horse so I went to that site.

      Dead link! Don't be fooled. It's a fraud. You probably have to go to Nigeria to pick up the supplies.

    4. You know what's cool, though, are the dozens of horse drinking troughs, some quite ornate and dating back to the 1860s, which still exist in random places around Philadelphia. Some of the Center City troughs were even apparently actively used by mounted policemen into the 1980s.

      Portland, Oregon still has a number of steel horse rings on their pavements, dozens of which, about a decade back, a local artist hooked miniature toy horses up to...

  4. I would venture to guess that, in Mr. Hammad's case, it's got much less to do with any kind of Big Lie, and everything to do with his being a simple, raving antisemite.

    Otherwise, he'd begin his protest against 'colonizers' a little closer to home, by getting the hell out of San Francisco and leaving his property to the native tribes of the region.
