Israel Hell-bent On Inciting European States Against Their Muslim Citizens
13 January 2015
By Khalid Amayreh
Many Israeli officials are quite
nervous and furious these days. The reason is not
Hamas's ability to withstand the all-out Israeli
onslaught on the Gaza Strip in summer, which
destroyed, partly or completely, as many as 100,000
homes and killed and maimed thousands. Nor is it the
ongoing Palestinian Authority (PA) efforts to get the
UN to designate a deadline for ending the decades-old
Israeli occupation of the Palestinian homeland.
The main reason for the fury and nervousness is the
largely symbolic recent voting by several European
parliaments to recognize Palestine on the basis of the
1967-armistic line between the West Bank and the
territories seized by Israel in 1948.
What is especially interesting is that the Israeli
reactions to these European parliamentary moves have
been fraught with brash Islamophobia and venomous
incitement against European Muslims, the imagined
"villain" behind the pro-Palestinian moves.
In their reactions, most Israeli commentators and
officials imputed the belated European awakening, if
indeed it is an awakening, to the growing Muslim
population in several European states, although the
expatriate Muslim communities in Europe have actually
very little political clout in the states where they
live and work.
Some Israeli commentators have actually stopped short
of urging European states to expel their Muslim
citizens. One Israeli journalist wrote in the mass
circulation Yedeot Ahronot recently that Europe was
becoming an Islamic continent.
The pornographically mendacious remarks were
apparently intended to generate hatred and racism
The Israeli logic goes like this: if Europe becomes
more anti-Islam, the democratic European governments
will be forced by public pressure to be less
pro-Palestinian and more pro-Israel (the truth is that
Europe is still far more supportive of Israel than of
the Palestinians- Just a few days ago Germany agreed
to supply Israel with several attack submarines that
could be fitted with nuclear warheads).
In many aspects, the brazen Israeli incitement against
European Muslims goes beyond the pale. It is quite
similar in form and substance to the Nazi incitement
against European Jewry prior to and during WWII.
Thus Muslims are portrayed as Europe's ultimate enemy.
Europe is reminded of the "terrible Turks," and the
most racist and Islamophobic European figures,
including intellectuals and politicians, are featured,
interviewed and promoted by Israel's state-run media.
In a nutshell, Israel is saying to Europe: Expel them,
don't allow them to multiply and grow, don't commit a
We all know that the holocaust didn't begin with
Auschwitz, Bergen Belsen, Dachau and other
concentration camps. It rather started with incitement
that at the time seemed innocuous.
Unfortunately, the premier victims of the holocaust
are now striving and praying hard to be able to
generate a similar holocaust against the Muslims of
I am not inciting against anyone. And I am not being
phobic or hysterical. I am just warning all those
concerned, including European Muslims, to be careful
European Muslims constitute less than 5% of the
continent's overall population. Hence it is
unrealistic to believe that Israel is just hysterical
over a purported demographic growth of Muslims in the
old continent. After all, Israel itself is surrounded
by hundreds of millions of Muslims, and Israel itself,
along with the occupied territories, has already lost
its Jewish majority, according to some Israeli
Yes, there are some violent or violence-prone
individuals here and there. Such people exist in every
society and culture. But the vast majority of European
Muslims are peaceful and law-abiding citizens. This is
the outstanding fact that Israel and Zionist circles
want Europeans to ignore by hook or by crook.
But what is it that really makes Israel so
exasperated, so convulsive?
The more likely reason for the Israeli hysteria has to
do with the chances that the pro-Palestinian moves in
some European parliaments might lead to a concrete
political action against Israel, either by the EU or
by individual European states. This could conceivably
include a meaningful economic boycott of the Jewish
state as well as divestment from Israel.
Hence, Israel is releasing all its phobic fears and
illogical malicious warnings in order to be able to
destroy the Palestinians undisturbed.
Invoking the holocaust
Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu,
who is notorious for making hyperbolic mendacious
statements, was quoted as saying that the latest
pro-Palestinian moves showed that the Europeans
apparently learned nothing from the "holocaust."
So what does Netanyahu and his racist colleagues want
Does he want Europe to allow Israel to gang up on the
unprotected Palestinians and exterminate them once and
Does he really believe that Europe can only atone for
one holocaust by allowing Israel to carry out another
holocaust against the Palestinians?
Indeed, a careful examination of statements by Israeli
and some American Zionist officials leaves no doubt as
the real intentions of these depraved thugs.
In truth, the unspoken words of these Zionist
supremacists sound quite horrifying. The Zionists are
effectively telling Europe that "you must allow us to
finish off the Palestinians or else we will invoke the
golem of anti-Semitism again."
This should explain why most Israelis and Zionists
raise their eyebrows in objection to European
condemnation of the genocidal murder by Israel of
Palestinian civilians, as happened in Gaza a few
In other words, what many Israelis, especially in
government and the media, seem to say is that as long
as the number of murdered Palestinians has not reached
the six-million figure, Europe, indeed the rest of the
world, has absolutely no right to open its mouth.
In short, Israel demands that Europe remain silent and
passive as Israel continues to carry out its
slow-motion genocidal ethnic cleansing scheme against
the helpless Palestinians.
Israel is behind violence in
As an observer of Israeli behavior for the last 40
years, I have no doubt that Israel is decidedly behind
much of the so-called Islamist terror in Europe.
Israel is simply hell-bent on inciting European states
against Islam and Muslims. Israel seems hell-bent on
seeing a European 9/11 replayed in Paris or London or
even Berlin. Again I have no doubt in my mind that the
Mossad is working rather hectically on this day and
night. Israel is simply too nefarious and too satanic
to be given the benefit of the doubt.
Imagine, just imagine, a Nine-eleven -like attack on
London, Paris or Berlin by suspected Muslim
terrorists? This is probably the dearest Israeli dream
these days, as such an attack would effectively turn
500 million Europeans against Islam and Muslims, which
would then give Israel the required carte blanche to
finally liquidate the Palestinians and their just
Needless to say, all that the Mossad needs to fulfill
this dream-nightmare is to find some gullible
individuals bearing Muslim names, willing to do the
job. The rest would be details.
In the past, Mossad agents or individual Jews carried
out anti-Semitic incidents in order to blackmail
western governments and to keep the anti-Semitism
However, the mostly phobic Israeli fear of Islam in
Europe seems to haunt and overwhelm the
Israeli-Zionist psych today so much that a real shock
is needed to reverse the tide in Europe. Hence, the
idea of fabricating a European 9/11 and blame it on
