The Holy Land Stinks Like S—-

Israel’s Stench
When I think I have heard it all, then I read about Israel’s national stench policy. I am referring to Israel’s use since 2008 of “skunk juice” as a weapon to keep Palestinians under control.
Victims have no idea of its chemical make-up but if they are sprayed with it, it takes days of scrubbing to get rid of the stench. In a land where water is scarce, smelling like the sewer is a disheartening experience.

According to Ben Ehrenreich, Skunk trucks could show up at any time, especially during celebrations, such as weddings, birthday parties, funerals or times of worship. Someone yells “skunk,” and everyone runs.

There was that truck, the white one idling behind the jeeps, a clear liquid dripping from the cannon on its roof. The liquid it so violently emitted was called skunk water. No one knew what chemicals it contained or what effect exposure to it might bring, but everyone knew what it smelled like. It smelled like dead dogs in a dumpster in August. Mainly, it smelled like shit. And no matter how many times you scrubbed your hair and your clothes, the scent would linger for days, even weeks.[1]

Run home, lock your doors. You still can’t hide from it. Skunk trucks drive down neighborhoods and business districts spraying its putrid smell on everything within a hundred yards. Its odor may linger in clothing for five years.[2]

Skunk is powerful stuff. A reporter described its effect:

Imagine taking a chunk of rotting corpse from a stagnant sewer, placing it in a blender and spraying the filthy liquid in your face. Your gag reflex goes off the chart and you can’t escape, because the nauseating stench persist for days.[3]

Palestinians living under Israeli occupation do not have to imagine. They know:

The truck blasted Mohammad’s house next, the jet of fluid smashed the first-floor windows and knocked him from his feet. He had just come home, triumphant from his close escape. Shattered glass cut his face and chest. Skunk water saturated the carpets and couches.[4]

Forty percent of Palestinian males have spent time in Israeli jails. Said Tamimi was one of them. After serving twenty years, he came home to find his house saturated with skunk juice. Once this happens, carpets, upholstery and clothes never get rid of the stench and wind up being thrown away. Even at that, he was lucky. Others have been hospitalized, either from the effects of the skunk itself or having been injured in the stampede running away from it.

Israel needs a new flag, one to represent Israel today. It would be brown. The Star of David, the symbol of a proud and praiseworthy Jewish heritage is far, far above skunk juice.

Establishment Attack By CFR’s Elliott Abrams Belittles, Threatens Lutherans

September 15, 2016

Source: WHTT

It was no surprise to see attacks by Zionist supporters of Israel against the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) after two pro-Palestinian resolutions were passed at their recent convention (for background information, listen to our podcast, “ELCA Lutherans Palestinian Peace Not Walls Campaign-Major Breakthrough“). In this podcast we discuss the significance of the recent attack on the ECLA by Council on Foreign Affairs’ Elliott Abrams, Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies in an article by him, entitled “The Lutheran Church Attacks Israel, Again.” The Council on Foreign Relations is an elite “club” of powerful movers and shakers in Government and Corporate spheres (check out for yourself on the “CFR’s Membership Roster“) that are considered to constitute the “American Establishment.” [23 minutes] Ref. WHTT article, “CFR’s Elliott Abrams Threatens, Belittles Lutheran Church“]

Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil

There is a reason why you can’t buy this book. But if you really want to get it, Amazon gouges you $79 for the paperback version! Why is this? Would this quote have something to do with it?

As “6 million” merely represents some token in Jewish dogma, some cabalistic hocus-pocus, there is no reason to attach any special importance to its numerical value.

Google Books has a free online version here offered by the generous author himself.
