A friendly ancestral reminder

The refugees really want peace, and their calling Jews "apes" helps to facilitate that dialogue.  Alleged Christian Palestinians shout these epithets, referencing the Qur'an regarding Jews being descendants of apes and pigs. 

Ah, the joys of Islamic doctrine practiced by Muslims.

PA daily: "Jews, Jews! Your holiday [Passover] is the Holiday of Apes"  
An article in the official PA daily newspaper claims that Palestinian Christian youth perform a spring march in the streets that includes the chant: "Jews, Jews! Your holiday [Passover] is the Holiday of Apes." (See PMW web site for examples of the Palestinian Authority referring to Jews as "apes and pigs.") He writes that these "meaningful messages" are in response to Israel's security measures in Jerusalem during the holiday of Passover: 
"For many years the holy city [Jerusalem] has been deliberately closed to Palestinians, under security-related pretexts and for the Jewish festival of Passover."
The writer says that the Easter services in Jerusalem have lost their Palestinian flavor because of western Christian pilgrims:
"The festivities at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre have begun to assume a western character, because of the massive presence of foreign Christian pilgrims and the limited presence of Palestinians."
But the writer insists that in Palestinian Authority cities, the festivities have retained their Palestinian flavor. He describes youth chanting that the Jewish holiday of Passover is the "Holiday of the Apes":
"The spring carnival has retained its [Palestinian] flavor in towns such as Bethlehem, Beit Sahour and Ramallah... with the demonstrations of the Scouts, songs, dances, and popular Palestinian hymns about Christian-Islamic unity and internal Christian unity. These hymns carry meaningful messages, in response to the Israeli prohibition [to enter Jerusalem], as seen in the calls of the youth who lead the procession of light, waving swords and not caring if anyone accuses them of anti-Semitism: ... 'Our master, Jesus, the Messiah, the Messiah redeemed us, with his blood he bought us, and today we are joyous while the Jews are sad,' and, 'Jews, Jews! Your holiday is the Holiday of the Apes, while our holiday is the Holiday of the Messiah.'"

Unfortunately that same anti-Semitism is spreading throughout the Christian churches of Europe. Ministers from the Church of England routinely spout anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist hatred of Jews, & encourage "fellowship" with Islam. The myth of a Palestinian homeland, of a Palestinian Jesus & of Jewish brutality is also widely spread. The propagation of these myths only encourages Islamic hegemony. Christianity is forgetting its Jewish roots. Unfortunately when it is too late for Europe they will come running to the United States once more to save them from the oppression of fascism, Islamic style.

You hear a lot about anti-Semitism. You hear nothing about anti-Gentilism. You won't read much in the media about the beliefs of the followers of rabbi Schneerson, who believe that Jews are a separate species. This guy was recently 'honored' by president Obama! What this website does is reinforce the dominant, totally unbalanced, philo-Semitic perspective which currently pervades our culture.
