Getting into the minds of terrorists
I hear this all the time from contributors in the MSM and from left field. I am sick of this crazy talk. You want to understand terrorism, let three former terrorists explain. But no, they were shut out of Princeton where they were due to give a talk on terrorism. Free speech, huh? Well one of them, Walid Shoebat,
was involved in the PFLP and was sent to the US to help prepare the way for the American jihad on US university campuses.Now to his explanation of terrorism:
"We knock on heaven with skulls of Jews was written as graffiti all over the West Bank when growing up," Shoebat explained. "Every day of school, at the meal table, in general conversation, the topic was the Jews and how to destroy them." He continued, "It's not about land, it's not about occupation or jobs or apartheid, it (Jew hatred) is indoctrinated in us from an early age." Regarding peace in the middle east, he bemoaned that people are always asking for the solution to bring peace, particularly Jews, without wanting to understand the problem first that prevents it: indoctrination to Jew hatred. Shoebat explained that giving Palestinians land or jobs will not solve the situation but only encourage the indoctrinated mindset of killing Jews by rewarding it for terrorism. He explained how the real apartheid is in the Palestinian Authority, how the Palestinian Authority's constitution says Islam is the state religion and Arabic the only official language. He contrasted this with the pluralism in Israeli society in a country with fifteen recognized religions.I think that is pretty clear. Don't you? Just in case you missed it:
It's not about land, it's not about occupation or jobs or apartheid, it (Jew hatred) is indoctrinated in us from an early age.
And the price of this honesty? Well, those of you clued in, you would have guessed it. One of the other former terrorists, Zachariah Annani, says that his dad would like to see his son killed for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity:
His own father wished that the most important thing he wanted to see happen before his death was to see Annani killed for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity and abandoning his hatred of Jews.Alternatively, one can consider Shoebat's testimony:
Shoebat explained on the O'Reilly Show, "If I stood on the street in Ramallah and handed out leaflets saying to stop suicide bombings I would be killed instantly. The American news media never reports on the Palestinians killed and dragged through the streets for advocating peace [with the Jews]." Their message was one not heard in mainstream media.Funny that. I thought Islam was a Religion of Peace (TM).
