What the world doesn't know about Annapolis
by Pam Geller
01 Jan 2008
A line in the sand was crossed last week.
And anyone who claims that Annapolis was a big yawn and that
nothing would come of it is living in the land of unicorns and
Last week, a line was crossed. A terrible line was crossed at Annapolis.
With the world looking on, the President of the United States sponsored Judeophobia. Jew-hatred was okay, understandable even.
Under the auspices of a global 'peace' conference, the White House sanctioned Jew-hatred. The Jew is contemptible, inferior, ignorant, politically and socially disenfranchised: separate entrance ways, service entrances for the Jews, refusal to
touch or shake hands with a Jew, refusal of audience members to wear the translation earphones when Ehud Olmert spoke.
Saud Al-Faisel's ears, underneath his red keffiyah, were left bare.And no, it wasn't because he understood Hebrew.
It was the Saudi method of demonstrating their relationship to the State of Israel. Even as the Israeli Prime Minister was greeting him and speaking of peace, they were refusing to listen. For a minute I thought I was wrong that maybe there was a technical problem.
But then I saw his aide next to him - also leaving his ears demonstrably not covered by the ear piece.
Then, as Olmert's speech ended, and the audience applauded. The Saudi representative also brought his palms together in order to appear polite.
Only someone who sat very close to him could see that they never touched.
The little game that the Saudis were playing was just one contradiction - he least noticeable one - in a day full of contradictions.
Submitting to Saudi demands, the Americans prohibited Israeli representatives from entering the hall through the same door as the
Arabs; sanctioned and institutionalized by the President of the United States. I thought George Bush was a Christian, a man of faith. Shocking. He has squandered his second term and has not
acted in good faith. We did not elect him to carry Condi's water.
It is unfathomable to consider this with any other race, creed or color. Imagine separate entrances for the leader of an African
nation because a 'white' leader refused to walk through the same door as the black man, because it would be unclean?
And Israel took it like the ghetto Jew. They should have walked out like any self-respecting human would have done.
But no, they lowered the bar yet again. Offering all and getting nothing. Sheba Farms, Golan, Jerusalem - all of it in play.
The post-Oslo Jew has returned to the pre-Holocaust mentality of the 'ghetto Jew.' The Jew who doesn't want to be noticed, the Jew
who will do anything to appease
those who hate us, just to live in peace.
Instead of asserting our rights, our will, that we have a right, that we are the rightful heirs of Israel and Jerusalem, we are acting as if we have no rights.
Instead, we are begging - begging - our enemies to recognize us and
Behaving like beggars! And the silence of American Jews - well,
it's the ghetto mentality mixed with those who have assimilated
into American culture:
the 'let's not rock the boat' crowd.
