Only In Israel

Saturday, December 31, 2005

That's allright, you can keep her.

For the last week there was some sort of drama around the hijacking of a British "peace activist" and her family by crazy jihadists in Gaza. Eventually Kate Burton and her family were released, and she quickly fled to the Israeli side of the Gaza border, not before wrapping herself in a "Pizza Hutt" tablecloth, a-la "General Arafat".
The media described her as a "peace activist" that belonged to a group called "Al-Mezan". Noone ofcourse bothered to tell you the truth about "Al-Mezan". Noone told you that it's an organisation affiliated with the ISM. Noone told you that "Al-Mezan" regularly invents "massacres" and promotes horrendous propaganda regarding some imaginary "human rights violations" by Israel.
Here's some info from an organisation monitoring NGO's such as Al-Mezan.
When a regulation preventing transfer of US funds into the hands of organisations promoting terrorism was proposed, Al-Mezan was the first to respond:
In late August, Al Mezan’s director was quoted in the Arabic press as stating: “There is no legal basis for this document. This document should be boycotted, including the local authorities, political parties and universities. These institutions should reject this document completely, as it puts them in great danger. We should publicize a list of any institutions that agree to the conditions in the document.”
"great danger", now why would you say that? Certainly nothing you have to hide.
There's a lot of payback in this story, the crazy girl hijacked by the terrorists she defends, the parents who allow her to carry activities in a war zone, and are dumb enough to participate in their daughter's quest against Israel, can see that not all is safe.
But apparently, some brains refuse to work even after traumatic experiences.

The British Foreign Office on Saturday distributed a statement written by the Burton family, saying Kate "plans to stay in the region and continue working with the Palestinian people."

"Kate remains committed and passionate about working alongside the Palestinians to improve their external image and alleviate the difficult conditions being suffered by the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip," the statement said.


Heh. Good luck with that one. I'm sure improving Palestinian external image is much easier once you've been hijacked by them.

  • Al Mezan is a good Palestinian human rights organization. Of course our soldier/blogger seems to believe that any organization that criticizes Israel should be closed. This is also the position of NGO Monitor whose website you link to for ann attack on Al Mezan.

    NGO Monitor (http://www.ngo-monitor.org) is run by crazy right-winger Dore Gold (http://www.ngo-monitor.org/ngo-monitor/who.htm). I would guess that Dore is still a member of the getting smaller every day Likud party headed by his right wing buddy Bibi. NGO Monitor has yet to find a single NGO worldwide that it likes, except for a few right-wing Israeli NGOs. I advise you all to go look at the NGO Monitor website if you'd like a laugh.

    If you want to want a short description of how NGO Monitor operates it is by innuendo, lies, distortion, guilt by association, etc.. Our soldier/blogger works in the same way.

    For an example of his/her lies, why don't you explain to all of us how Al Mezan is related to the ISM? You'll have to lie a decent amount to do that.

    Al Mezan has no relation to ISM, not that it matters, just another example of your propaganda. Glad that Kate is staying in Gaza.

    By the way, I and many others have been arbitrarily kidnapped and held many times by armed Israeli gangs who follow no laws - the Israeli army. The Israeli army probably treats people far worse than the Palestinians who kidnapped Kate. Kate was probably forced to drink lots of tea and coffee and eat many servings of good food until she couldn't eat any more (the Palestinian version of torture). A lot nicer than the way the Israeli army treats its many hostages and prisoners.

  • Hey, ISMer. I happen to find that "innuendo, lies, distortion, guilt by association, etc.." is a very accurate description of your own modus operandi here.
    Especially when it comes to NGO Monitor.

  • Welcome back....I always look forward to your blog !!

  • Hi Womble,

    Good point. You are right. I used mostly "guilt by association", a tactic usually used by people who are lazy, and/or lack concrete information to support their critiques.

    I'm short on time, but I will try to find time in the future to go back and provide some more concrete examples of NGO Monitor's tactics. In the meantime, do consider looking at their website and note that most all respected NGOs are criticized on it.

  • LOL She sounds as loony as the rest of those ISM rejects from real life. Forget the Stockholm Syndrome, this sounds like the Gazan Terrorist Pig Syndrome.

    I'll never understand why these losers expend so much time and energy helping terrorists who murder babies, pregnant women, and other innocent people. You can bet they'll never say a word about the situations in Tibet or Darfur (they're probably too damn stupid to even know what's happening there), but they're so unbelievably eager to help the poor misunderstood terrorists. I guess it's just a great acceptable way for them to express their Jew-hatred.

  • To ISMer

    The main reason for your assault on NGO-moniter, is because finally their is someone watching the "watchers".

    The fact is that this organization acts to ensure that NGO's do not run rampant and ensure that their criticisms are based on reality and not on political or emotional causes.

    But it's obvious that this organization is doing it's job, or why else would you be so threatened by it's position and criticisms of NGO's.

    However from your anti-state, NGO's are G-D's word attitude it's fairly obvious, that you can dish out criticism but you can't take it.

    Also , while you criticize NGO moniter for being "run" by Dore Gold, by having his name on the website. This, obviously a new concept to you and many NGO's, is called "transparency". This when an organization tells people everything so that they know the methods, and whose running the place.

  • Isn't it typical that someone like that would flee to Israel, not enough Arab countries to choose from?

  • To ISMer

    You claim that the Israeli army probably treats people far worse
    than the Palestinians. If that is true, then why do these people (Kate Burton, the brave EU monitors, etc.) ALWAYS flee to Israel? What you say does not seem to make much sense, does it? Perhaps the rest of what you say doesn't make much sense either.

  • Israel should have been closed to Kate Wharton but the stupid Jews let the garbage in.

    There is no good reason to debate with the enemies like the ISMer. They are infected by the scum instructors in the form of Larry Mosqueda from Evergreen College, Olympia, Washington. May they roast in hell together with the Palestinian Arab terrorists.
