I dagarna uppmärksammade Fria Tider ett uttalande av den amerikanska islamkritikern Pamela Geller, ordförande för organisationen SION, där den svenske konstnären Lars Vilks nyligen var inbjuden för att hålla tal. Men vad menade hon egentligen när hon skrev att européer är ”monster” och att kärnvapenstaten Israel bör svara på ett eventuellt angrepp från Iran genom att anfalla Europa med ”allt de har”?
Ledarbloggen har skickat flera mejl till SION:s högkvarter i New York. Gellers svar på våra frågor var emellertid mer arga än klargörande. Något avståndstagande från tanken på israeliska kärnvapenangrepp mot Europa lyckades vi hursomhelst – trots upprepade försök – inte locka ur henne.
Mejlväxlingen följer på engelska nedan.
Dear Mrs Geller,
I have a question concerning this blog entry from February 2010;
”Here is more on the Jews fleeing Europe (Sweden and Paris, for example)
that I have been covering. Israel is essential. And I pray dearly that
in the ungodly event that Tehran or its jihadi proxies (Hez’ballah,
Hamas etc) target Israel with a nuke, that she retaliate with everything
she has at Tehran, Mecca, and Medina……………
Not to mention Europe. They exterminated all their Jews, but that
wasn’t enough. Those monsters then went on to import the next generation
of Jew killers. ”
Did you or did you not with this text mean that Israel should attack Europe with nuclear weapons?
The only nuke mentioned in the post is Iran’s. Obviously I only meant that Europe should be held accountable for aiding jihad terror groups like Hizballah. Any other interpretation is a contrivance of those leftists who have to resort to playing stupid ”gotcha” games in their quest to destroy those who fight for freedom.
Yours in liberty,
Does that imply that you propose that Israel should launch an armed retaliation towards Europe IF Israel is attacked with nukes by Hezbollah or any other islamic terror organisations? Or in what other way should Europe be held ”accountable”?
The nature of the accountability should be appropriately commensurate with the European action.
Are you justifying a nuclear strike against Israel by jihad terror proxies of Iran, and saying Israel should not retaliate?
Europe has abdicated its position as the world’s beacon of human rights and liberty. That abdication began with the Holocaust, but has not ended with it — far from it. Remember also that the Holocaust, while it was a German initiative, was carried out by every nation in Europe, save for the Danes. There were Dutch Nazis, Polish Nazis — Europe as a continent decided it was a good idea to get rid of the Jews. Holland had the highest rate of collaboration with the Nazis, higher than any other country in Western Europe. 95% of Dutch Jews were murdered. Caroline Glick said in my radio interview with her that the lesson the Europeans took away from the aftermath of WW2 was insidious. ”The lesson that Europe had decided to avail itself to in the aftermath of Auschwitz, was not that evil is bad and that they behaved like monsters but rather that everything was caused by nationalism and therefore what we really need to do is have a European Union that will obviate our need for nationalism so that we can become this transnational gobbletygook and we’ll all get together and therefore we won’t have another Auschwitz. But really the lesson should have been is that we were evil and we have to be good. And that is the lesson we have to learn and and we have to be able and willing to make moral distinctions and stand up for the good and fight evil, and that is something the Europeans refuse to do.”
Europeans today are constantly having memorials to dead Jews while condemning Israel for every act of of self-defense, no matter how benign it is, in the defense of innocent Jewish citizens.
Yours in liberty,
Between the two of us, I am not the one talking about nuclear strikes.
I am only interested in finding out the truth in this story. I want to find out what you actually meant by that blog entry two and a half years ago. Many people seem to have interpreted your entry as an urge on Israel to attack Europe. Your reply to me indicates that their interpretation wasn’t taken out of the blue, no matter what your prerequisites for that attack would be (such as Europe endorsing or not strongly enough distancing itself from certain militant group in the Middle East).
Given the present situation, DO you or do you NOT think that Israel should launch an armed attack on Europe if attacked by Iran or any other non-European muslim-majority country in the area?
I believe that Europe should receive the appropriate response from the international community for the EU’s support of jihadist groups.
Do you grill in a similar way the Muslim clerics who vow to destroy Europe and install Islamic rule there? Have you sent a series of sharp questions to Sheikh Qaradawi about his statements regarding how Islam will conquer Europe? If not, why not?
I assure you, it won’t be Israel that wages war on Europe but the jihadists you work so hard to please.
My positions are clear, as are your repeated attempts to distort my message. You are a disgrace to journalism.
Yours in liberty,
