1.10 Who are the Real Oppressors and Who are the Real Oppressed?

Children when they go to leftist controlled schools in the United States are taught that whites, and the police are the oppressors and that Muslims, Blacks, and Transgenders are the oppressed. 

Who really are the oppressed?  In schools throughout America  I started writing this page on August 15, 2022.  Here are headlines I saw in my email on that day from the Geller Report.

Jihad Terror in Israel: At Least 8 Wounded in Jerusalem Attack, Including Americans, ... ‘Palestinian’ Muslims Celebrate  (In this case the oppressors are radical muslims and the oppressed are Jews.  The Americans killed were Jews)

Rushdie Stabbed, Authorities and Media Cover for Islam   Salman Rushdie is an author who was born in India.  One of the books he wrote was called The Satanic Verses.  The satanic verses refer to verses in early biographies of Muhammad whom Muslims believe received revelation from God which was put into the Koran.  According to those verses Muhammad was fooled by Satan into praising the pagan Meccan goddesses: al-Lāt, al-'Uzzá, and Manāt.  Muslims don't like the idea that Muhammad who is supposed to be perfect, could have been fooled.  Salman Rushdie brings up these verses in his book and in addition he is critical of the ruthless and fanatical Ayatollah Khomeini in his book. Ayatollah Khomeini overthrew the moderate Shah of Iran and became Iran's supreme leader.  He turned Iran into a fanatically Muslim anti-western country.  In 1989 Khomeini issued a fatwa demanding that Rushdie and the publishers of his book be killed.  Terrified bookstores such as Barnes and Noble, stopped selling Rushdie's book.   15,000 to 20,000 Muslims gathered in Parliament Square in London burning Rushdie in effigy and calling for the novel's banning. A man using the alias Mustafa Mahmoud Mazeh accidentally blew himself up along with two floors of a central London hotel while preparing a bomb intended to kill Rushdie. In 1991 faithful Muslims stabbed the Japanese translator of Rushdies's book and an Italian translator as well.  In 2022, 33 years after Khomeini's fatwa, the Muslims finally got Rushdie.  A muslim named Hadi Matar stabbed Salman Rushdie in the neck when Salman was about to give a speech defending free speech in New York.  (In this case radical Muslims are the oppressors and the oppressed are people who speak out against radical Islam.)  Taslima Nasreen a courageous woman who wants to reform Islam says the attack on Salman Rushdie shows that progressive Muslims like herself are not safe even in the United States.

Muslim sisters found dead in Sydney ‘claimed asylum for sexuality and religion – but were denied’  One sister applied for the visa on the basis she was a lesbian, 7news reported. The other woman applied for a protection visa on the grounds she was an atheist.  One of the sisters also said she was escaping a forced marriage. (This is an example of a non-believer and people who won't obey Islam being oppressed)

All this was reported on just one day in the Geller Report.  This is not unusual.  The rest of the year is no better.  For a list of Islamic atrocities every day go to https://thereligionofpeace.com/ .  That site lists the atrocities of the previous week.   It listed the following atrocities by Muslims between Aug 6 and Aug 12 2022.

39 attacks
148 killed
135 injured
5 suicide blasts

Many of the attacks listed in the religion of peace web site are Muslim attacks against Christians. Christians are an oppressed group.

Blake Flayton is a college student who plans to leave the United States for Israel when he graduates because of the anti-semitism he experienced at George Washington Unversity.  He wrote a list of some of the anti-semitic acts a few of which I've included below.

·  The Chabad House set on fire in August 2020, at the University of Delaware

·  The Jewish vice president of student government at USC who resigned in August 2020, after getting barraged with antisemitic hate.

·  The University of Chicago students who, in January 2022, called on their fellow students not to take “sh*tty Zionist classes” taught by Israelis or Jews. 

·  The Jewish fraternity at Rutgers that got egged in April 2022—during a Holocaust Remembrance Day commemoration.

·  The Chabad menorah that was vandalized for the fourth time in two years, in May 2022, at the University of Cincinnati.

·  The protester who hurled rocks at Jewish students in June 2022, at the University of Illinois.

·  The swastikas that turned up in July and August 2022, at Brown.

·  The Hillel that was vandalized in August 2022, at USC

·  The innumerable, antisemitic incidents at San Francisco State University, which the Lawfare Project, a Jewish nonprofit, has called “the most anti-Semitic college campus in the country.”

·  The two girls recently kicked out of a group at SUNY New Paltz, because they posted something positive about Israel.

Here is a video in which Jews speak about how they are oppressed on college campuses in the United States.

How much of this do you learn in school?  My son learns that Muslims are an oppressed minority.  He never hears any of this. 

Jews have been persecuted since ancient times.

The bible records that the Jews were slaves in Egypt and that the Pharoah of Egypt commanded that all the first born Jews be killed.  The bible states that the Jews fled.  The time of the flight is believed to be about 1300 BC.  That's 3,322 years ago.  Jews have been persecuted for thousands of years since then.  Disney made a movie about the story called the Prince of Egypt.  Here is a clip from the movie about the oppression of the Jews 3000 years ago.

From 1941 to 1945 Germany conquered country after country and murdered as many Jews as it could that lived in the countries it conquered.  Germany killed 6 million Jews in the Holocaust.

The Holocaust was the worst mass killing of Jews but it followed a long period of persecution of Jews in Europe.  I came across the following text by a man who lived in the 1400s, Isaac Zarfati, He wrote in 1454:

I have heard of the afflictions, more bitter than death, that have befallen our brethren in Germany -- of the tyrannical laws, compulsory baptisms and the bansihments, which are of daily occurrence. I am told that when they flee from one place a yet harder fate befalls them in another. I hear an insolent people raising its voice in fury against a faithful remnant lviing among them; I see its hand uplifted to smite my brethren. On all sides I learn of anguish of soul and torment of body; of daily exactions levied by merciless oppressors. The clergy and the monks, false priests that they are, rise up against the unhappy people of God and say: "Let us pursue them even unto destruction; let the name of Israel be no more known among men." They imagine that their faith is in danger because the Jews in Jerusalem might, peradventure, buy the Church of the Sepulchre. For this reason they have made a law that every Jew found upon a Christian ship bound for the East shall be flung into the sea. Alas! how evil are the people of God in Germany entreated; how sadly is their strength departed! They are driven hither and thither, and they are pursued even unto death. The sword of the oppressor even hangs over their heads, they are flung into the devouring flames, into swift-flowing rivers and into foul swamps.

Zarfati believed that Jews would be a lot better off if they emigrated to Turkey and maybe in 1454 that was true, however in 1579 the Turkish Sultan Murad III ordered the destruction of all Jews in the Ottoman empire.  Muslims are taught in their holy books to hate everyone who doesn't believe in Islam, especially Jews.  Here are a few of many sentences from Muslim holy books commanding Muslims to hate the non-believer.

Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Koran 9:5)

I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them. (Koran 8:12)

The unbelievers among the People of the Book and the pagans shall burn for ever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest of all creatures. (Koran 98:1-8)

Allah has cursed them (the Jews) on account of their unbelief; so little it is that they believe. (Koran 2:88)

Mohammed said, “The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them.” (Mishkat Al Masabih Sh.M. Ashraf pp.147, 721, 810-11, 1130)“

[A] Jew [is] of that most contemptible of religions, the most vile of faiths…They [Jews]... are altogether the worst liars…They are the filthiest and vilest of peoples, their unbelief horrid, their ignorance abominable…The vilest infidel ape [i.e., Jews; per Koran 5:60, 2:65, 7:166]; Do not consider that killing them [Jews] is treachery.”

Despite these teachings there are moderate Muslims who are not hostile to Jews. 

Christian scriptures also teach hatred of the Jew although some Christians are better friends of the Jews and of Israel than many Jews are.  In the book of John we read

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is an antichrist,  (1 John 2.22,23).

The antichrist, is the polar opposite and ultimate enemy of Christ. According to Christian tradition, he will reign terribly in the period prior to the Last Judgment. He is the equivalent of the devil.

John told the Jews that:

Ye are of your father the devil

Why do the book of John and the Korean teach that the Jew is evil?  Probably because the Jews were the unbeliever.  They refused to believe in Islam and they refused to believe in Christianity.  Jewish non-believers were a challenge to the power of Muhammad and the power of John.  Why did Ayatollah Khomeini call for the death of Salman Rushdie?  Because Salman Rushdie's Satanic verses portrayed the Ayatollah as evil and Islam as ridiculous.  Free speech is the ultimate challenge to the power of people who shouldn't have that power which is why those who speak freely are oppressed.  Salman Rushdie gave a speech in 2015, 7 years before he was stabbed about the threat to free speech in America.  He was going to speak on the same topic in 2022 when he was stabbed.  We should not let the stabber win and silence Mr. Rushdie, which I is why I have included a short video of his 2015 warning below.  He mentions dead cartoonists in his speech.  They were cartoonists for a magazine that printed images of Muhammad which Muslims didn't like including a picture of Muhammad with an explosive in his turban.  Two Muslims entered the building of the magazine in 2015 and shot the cartoonists.
