The Weaselthal Center
By Khalid Amayreh
The Wiesenthal Center is notorious for its pro-Israeli propaganda. It publishes flagrant lies, exaggerations and half-truths which are often presented as “academic and objective facts.” However, in truth, many of these findings are actually fabrications. This recently came to light with the publication, in June 2009, of Hunting Evil, by British Author Guy Walters, in which he characterized Simon Wiesenthal as “a liar-and a bad one at that.”
Moreover, the Center is notorious for trying to hide facts that would expose Israel’s ugly face. For example, the center is now objecting to the appearance of Richard Goldstone, the South African Jewish judge who investigated Israel’s crimes in Gaza last year, at New York University.
In a statement, the Los Angeles-based Center reportedly urged NYU President John Sexton, to deny Goldstone a platform to tell students what Israel really did in the Gaza Strip.
“Should Goldstone’s outrageous recommendations be adopted, international law will be used to render defenseless Israel against onslaught by non-state adversaries against its civilians.”
Well, the depravity and utter mendacity of the above statement should give us a clear idea about this evil body (the Wiesenthal Center) which claims to be dedicated to fighting racism and anti-Semitism while effectively promoting Israeli Nazism, even in its ugliest forms.
In the final analysis, what credibility does a “research center” that calls Israel “a defenseless state” have? A center as such has actually more to do with fornicating with language than with searching for the facts.
Lies, lies and lies
There is no doubt that lying is the modus operandi at the Wiesenthal Center. In recent years, the center has spearheaded a campaign to build “a Museum of Tolerance” right on top of a huge Muslim cemetery in the heart of Jerusalem.
The brutal ugliness of the Center’s behavior just goes beyond the pale of anything related to human decency. On the one hand, the center sees nothing wrong with crushing the bones and skulls of more than 70,000 human beings, buried in that ancient cemetery, known as Mamanullah (Sanctuary of God) or Mamilla. On the other, the rabbis at the center had the audacity and shamelessness to name the planned building “a museum of tolerance.” I believe that in a certain sense, not even the Nazis reached this level of mental depravity.
Needless to say, a museum of tolerance built on the crushed remains of the dead is the ultimate oxymoron.
Nonetheless, the barking dogs of Zionism don’t tire, trying to falsify the facts. In an article entitled “A proper site for a Museum of Tolerance,” published in the pro-Israeli Los Angeles Times on 12 February, Rabbi Marvin Hier claims that the planned construction of this Museum of Shame is perfectly legal and legitimate. To corroborate his morbid views, the founder and dean of the Wiesenthal Center cited verdicts by the Israeli supreme court authorizing the center to begin construction.
Well, since when can the courts system of a manifestly racist and criminal state be entrusted to establish and uphold justice? Do we always have to remind ourselves and the world that these are the very same courts that repeatedly authorized the Israeli army, the Jewish Wehrmacht, to commit atrocities, murder children, destroy homes, bulldoze farms, and carry out crimes against humanity?
Indeed, if Israel is a criminal state (numerous Jewish and Israeli intellectuals don’t dispute this characterization), then Israeli courts can very well be described as courts that legitimize the manifestly criminal policies and murderous practices of the thuggish state. They are criminal courts used as rubber stamps by criminal governments to effect decidedly criminal policies, very much like the Nazi justice system operated.
Hier dotes extensively on the rulings of Israeli courts, as if non-Jews could obtain true justice under these courts.
And in a cynical attempt to give a false impression that only a small minority of Muslims are objecting to the construction of a propaganda museum on the Muslim cemetery, the so-called rabbi also highlights opposition to the racist project by Islamic leader Sheikh Ra’ed Salah, whom he calls “notorious and extremist.”
It is very sad indeed that these openly-racist pseudo religious leaders are allowed to have their way, because then the message that this criminal act would communicate is that Zionism will not be content with hounding the living by incinerating them with White Phosphorus and banishing them to the four corners of the world, but will also go after the dead by crushing their bones and skulls and dumping their remains, well, God knows where.
It is also sad that these rabbis, such as Hier, who would leave no stone unturned when and if a Jewish cemetery is slightly desecrated any where in the world, feels perfectly comfortable playing the devil’s lawyer by making all sorts of satanic arguments about the permissibility of desecrating non-Jewish cemeteries.
Hier is a Chabad rabbi whose sect of Judaism views non-Jews in general as “lesser human beings,” or even animals. This should explain the logic of his center’s behavior and approach toward this issue.
There is no doubt that the construction of the evil museum right on top of the cemetery will be a criminal act with few parallels in the annals of history.
But it will also be a curse upon Zionism from now to the end of time since the ugly structure would embody man’s cruelty and intolerance toward his fellow man.
It would also vindicate the increasingly widespread view that Zionism is actually nothing less than Jewish Nazism, which means the world should deal with it with the same determination and same strength it dealt with Aryan Nazism.
