Perigo's Perspective: From The River To The Sea?

The pro-Hamas marches over the weekend were sickening.

Somehow hundreds of thousands of Hamas brownshirts all over the Western world came out of nowhere to scream their support for the worst act of genocide since the Holocaust, for sub-savages who behead babies and burn them in ovens. 

Hamas's Charter calls for relentless Jihad and the elimination of Israel. The Preamble to the 1988 Charter stated: 

″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam invalidates it, just as it invalidated others before it.″ 

After the slaughter of October 7, 2023, Israel  seeks, justly, to eliminate Hamas.

Israel is getting the job done. That is why the mob were demanding an immediate ceasefire. The baby-beheaders were on the run; the mob wanted to give them time to regroup. This may not sound as bad as outright demanding the gassing of Jews such as we heard elsewhere across the globe, but the end is the same. “From the river to the sea” means: no Israel.

Supposedly, the protests here were organised by a group called Justice for Palestine. 

In a singular example of loathsome hypocrisy and Orwellian virtue-signalling, Justice for Palestine's website says, 

All forms of racism and discrimination are the antithesis of justice, peace and freedom. Justice for Palestine events and social media will not tolerate any act or discourse which adopts or promotes, among others: racism, anti-Arab racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, sexism, xenophobia, or homophobia.

I wonder if they have communicated that to Hamas or Hezbollah or the Ayatollah?! Especially the bits about genocide, sexism and homophobia? Have they tried enlisting with Hamas wearing a rainbow T-shirt?

Green Party MP Golriz Ghahraman said:

“Right now, Gaza is living under a situation of ethnic cleansing, so it is unconscionable for us to remain silent.” 

Israel is not engaged in ethnic cleansing; it is engaged in self-defence: retaliatory force against those who initiated it.

But I have a question for Golriz: October 7 was not ethnic cleansing? 

What Chloe Swarbrick was shrieking for is not ethnic cleansing? 

Auckland Central voted for that? 

I'll bet, dear listener, you had no idea so many Aucklanders had such an interest in the Middle East!

Well-funded, too, this version of the Zombie Apocalypse. Funny, that.

It was gratifying and edifying to learn that arch-influencer Elon Musk has tumbled to what's going down in the world. Here he is telling Joe Rogan why he bought Twitter.

A Zombie Apocalypse. A mind virus that is killing civilisation. Who might possibly be helping fund such a thing? Elon didn't hold back on one possibility.

Non-enforcement of the law, as a way to destroy the law? Sound familiar? 

Elon Musk refers to Soros's difficult childhood. In fact, Soros says it was one of the happiest times of his life. That's when as a fourteen-year-old he helped Nazi occupiers locate his Hungarian fellow-Jews so their property could be confiscated and they be sent off to the death camps. He was asked about this in 1998.

    I delight in explaining to people what “From The River To The Sea” means, i.e. extermination of all Jews west of the Jordan River; sweeping them into the Mediterranean sea, figuratively speaking.

    Lindsay, I'm sure you will be delighted at the election result in Argentina – and the way President-elect Milei has articulated exactly the sentiments expressed by a certain political party several years back in our own country. I assume you will reflect on this heartening result tomorrow on your show.

    Unsure about which side to come down on? Simply ask yourself, “What side would Hitler be on?”
