Zionists to Rahm Emanuel: “If you remain silent … Jews will arise … but you … will perish …”

The Zionists didn’t like what Rahm said and now they have written a letter and plastered it all over the media:

“For many Israelis, this report is a cause for worry because it reveals a condescending attitude toward our prime minister and Israeli public opinion. This is an attitude that Israel does not expect from a real friend such as the US, and all the more so from an Israeli Jew who has succeeded in being appointed White House chief-of-staff.”

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Katz wrote, quoting from the Book of Esther (4:14).


May Allah guide Rahm Emanuel and give him strength to keep up a firm stance against any Zionist threat.

  1. Br. MR,

    To be clear, support of “zionism” as it is defined commonly means support of the right of the jewish people to return their biblical homeland….rahm emanuel, hamas, the palestinian authority, and therefore ANYONE or ANY entity that respects the right of the Jewish state to exist in some form, in what was once Palestine is a “zionist” by definition.

    my only point in saying this is that muslims (like myself) and supporters of Palestine (like myself) need to be careful about their language. language is a powerful thing, it has the ability to persuade people to listen to the merits of your cause or render you defeated before the merits of the argument have even been presented. with that in mind, when you attack “all zionists” or paint a picture of rahm emanuel versus the “zionists” you are using improper language, because rahm emanuel is most certainly a zionist…let’s call the rabid, right-wing supporters of israel exactly what they are – racists, right-wing fanatics, jewish supremacists, etc. – but don’t call them “zionists” because there are many jews, muslims, americans, etc. who are technically “zionists” if they believe israel has a right to exist, or have accepted that israel will continue to exist in some form or fashion.

  2. To be even clearer, “Zionism” in modern parlance means militant support of the Israeli state’s right to occupy territory outside of the1967 borders.

    one could argue that the vast majority, if not all of the people, who call themselves Zionists support Israel’s right to exist as it does today and how it always has, oppressing the Palestinian people, which means that they acknowledge Israel’s right to not only exist, but by extension, its right to oppress other people.

    Rahm Emanuel may have sent some harsh words to Israel about the settlements in the West Bank under the Obama Administration, but the fact that he acknowledges Israel as a valid state despite that its very creation was done with the oppression of Palestinians makes him, in my eyes, a person who believes at least to some extent, that the criminal factor of the oppression of others is subject to some people, and not others. I think that although his recent messages to Israel are have a great contrast to the opinions of the crazed, right-winged Israel politicians, it does not validate the moral dilemma that his acknowledgment for the state of Israel is wrong.

    Therefore using the term Zionist in this sense makes perfect sense to me, and in any matter, it is much better than just calling them all Jews.

    Still though, I personally believe in whatever will bring peace to the region, and stop the deaths on both sides, even if that means a two-state solution.

  4. The term Zionist is overused and is defined in several ways depending on who you ask. A lot of Jews do not acknowledge any right to oppress other people. All they acknowledge is the right for Jews to remain in the general area that is now called Israel. They acknowledge this right while at the same time not necessarily in favor of neither their government’s routine or the United State’s routine conflict with Arab/Muslim nations as well. The Holiest parts of the area are a problem, but that mainly concerns the most religious Jews. Far from 100% of Jews are religious enough to care exactly what parts of land are theirs, but still more than enough to keep the conflict strong. They’re the ones who are more open to the non-defensive aggressive behavior and should be labeled the Zionists since the term is officially negative.

  5. man i trust obama to make the right choices.
    alot of muslims are hating on him…but when he actually makes a differences we’ll jump on the badnwagon

  6. @Baseer
    The surge in Afghanistan
    Going back on the ‘immediate’ removal of the troops in Iraq
    Attacking Pakistan only 3 days after being sworn into office and then again on 2+ occasions…
    The list goes on.

    Let us not trust made up men in ironed out suits to help the Muslim’s.

    No matter how innocent,merciful,chivalrous and intelligent they look/act – remember this.

    Trust in Allah s.w.t above all else.

    I do not ‘trust’ Obama – for a plethora of reasons (one being AIPAC)…but to each his own ..
