I listened to the Sam Sorbo Show yesterday (the hyper-link to the audio is just beneath the photo), with particular attention to the commentary provided by Sebastian Gorka. Dr. Gorka’s segment begins at approximately 1:06.00 on the show timer.
Today I’ve paraphrased the salient points of the first segment of the interview, which covers the current wave of stabbings of Israeli citizens by Palestinian Muslims, with my editorial comments inserted:
Gorka: The back story to the current violence, a new Intifada, is difficult for the average American to follow.
Actually, the average American would do quite well with understanding the back story, had our press corps and elected officials ever taken the time to present us the facts.
Gorka: The Palestinians have called for statehood for decades. The Palestinian leadership has been recognized by many parts of the international community. President Obama’s admin has forced Israel to come to some sort of agreement.
Yes. The question is: Should the international community recognize the Palestinian leadership, given its fabricated claim to bona fide statehood, and its malevolence toward Israel and Western Civilization? What the Obama administration has done is to turn its back on our only true ally in the Middle East – Israel. Mahmoud Abbas, the current leader of Palestine and the governing Hamas party, is a jihadist. Hamas is entirely dedicated to the elimination of Israel. If you care to confirm this, you may read the beginning of the 1988 Hamas Charter by clicking here.
Gorka: It’s important to look at what the leadership of the Palestinians is doing regarding the stabbings, stonings, violence, etc. We shouldn’t look amongst the “radicals” for who is inciting the violence, we should look at the top leadership. Mahmoud Abbas said in a recent TV interview, “We welcome the martyrdom of those who die on the Temple Mount…The blood of the martyrs protecting the mount is pure.” That mosque is very important to Muslims and Palestinians.
Well, if what Mahmoud Abbas said in that TV interview isn’t “radical”, then what is “radical”? And what would give Mahmoud Abbas that kind of idea, to welcome the blood of the martyrs? We must look far beyond the Palestinian leadership for the genuine and original source of incitement to violence against Israel. Abbas and all his henchmen could be gone tomorrow and their replacements would be saying the same kinds of things. And why is that? The Quran and the Hadith collections are replete with open hatred for Jews – and with commands to kill them. For instance there is from this Hadith — Sahih Muslim, 41:698: “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).
Gorka: How realistic is a two-state solution when the leadership of Palestinians is calling for more violence, martyrdom, attacks against the Jews of Israel? Not targeting military personnel, rather targeting a husband and wife in front of their child, stabbing them is the situation. We can finally see this as a wakeup call – a two-state solution is not possible today.
Here’s a news flash: A two-state solution was never possible, given the doctrines and history of Islam. Muslims now and forever are charged with doing everything they can do to emulate the Perfect Man – Muhammad. And, if you didn’t know it, in 627 A.D. Muhammad was personally involved in beheading hundreds of members of the Jewish Banu Quraza tribe when he conquered Mecca. Quran 47:4 says, Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them)…
Gorka: Never is there an apology for the Palestinian violence against unarmed civilians.
Indeed. By the law of Islam, Infidels (non-Muslims) are not considered innocent people. Hence, when one hears an imam condemning the killing of innocent people, he is not alluding to non-Muslims. Non-Muslims who refuse to convert to Islam and refuse to accept dhimmi status (and pay their taxes to their Muslims masters) are fair game.
Gorka: U.S. news outlets are aiding and abetting the attacks. An MSNBC story last Friday used a series of maps to explain their story of what’s going on in Palestine and Israel today. The report was propaganda. MSNBC’s spin was that in 1946 Palestine was a state and was systematically destroyed while the Jewish state was developed, beginning in 1948. The truth is that there never was a Palestinian state. The British held the area as Territories of Palestine from 1946 by order of League of Nations, as a protectorate for the recreated state of Israel. MSNBC now represents that territory as the Country of Palestine.
In fact, in 1920 the Council of The League Of Nations entrusted Britain with administration of what is now Jordan and Israel. The land on the east side of the River Jordan, comprising about 77% of the original plot intended for Israel, was renamed Transjordan in 1923. The name Palestine came about because the ancient Romans had named the entire area “Palestina” during the 2nd century. Because the World of Islam holds that the entire region was originally a part of the Muslim Ottoman Empire, it is an intolerable situation for the land to belong to the Jewish state – it is the Occupied Territory, you see. Any land once claimed by Islam forever belongs to Islam. Any such land lost in war or by any other happenstance, must be reconquered and returned to its rightful owners – Muslims.
Sorbo: The position the Israelis are taking is that they’re somehow at fault for getting stabbed. Biased news stories in U.S. are shaped to blame Israelis for inciting the attacks.
Gorka: Yes. You are provoking the violence simply by existing.
Sorbo: We have that in our country. Blame the victim. You shouldn’t have dressed that way.
Is Ms. Sorbo by inference drawing a parallel between the Islamic jihad doctrine-driven stabbings currently happening within Israel and the sociopath’s transference of responsibility for a violent rape onto his victim? If so, it’s a little too much of a stretch for me.
Gorka: You’ve nailed it. Not only is it fun to identify the bias, it identifies how the left wing thinks and it’s all part and parcel of the world view of the extremists. The innocent person is to blame. Whether it’s the Tea Party or Israel, the problem is that “you exist.” You’re the provocateurs because you exist. “How dare you exist?” The innocent person is to blame, simply by existing.
Now I’ve completely fallen off the train. Mr. Gorka is affirming Ms. Sorbo’s sociopath rapist analogy. And what the Tea Party has to do with the current violent jihad activity in Israel is beyond my comprehension. How the American leftist media think and how Muslims view the world are two very different universes of thought. Yes, it is true that Islam and the Marxist left wing have temporarily joined hands to topple Western Civilization. The two ideologies can never exist together indefinitely. Marx is based in atheism. Islam is not.
My takeaway from this segment of the interview? There was no attribution of the Palestinian stabbings to Islam’s history, doctrine, or institutional anti-Semitism. Further, Muhammad’s life, deeds, and instructions, which form the basis for Muslim doctrine, were never mentioned. And they should have been mentioned.
