Skip to comments.Corrie Lawyer: Nazi Germany was Legal; Israel Founding was Theft
Posted on 08/30/2012 12:45:04 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
The hateful mindset of the lawyer for Rachel Corrie's family has been revealed by Palestinian Media Watch, which reports the lawyer called Israel "a giant monster" in a July rant and compared it unfavorably to Nazi Germany.
After a court exonerated Israel on Tuesday from responsibility for Corrie's death, the family's Israeli Arab lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said in a statement to the press: "It's a black day for activists of human rights and people who believe in values of dignity. We believe this decision is a bad decision for all of us: civilians first of all, and peace activists."
Yet it turns out that this was a relatively mild statement for the lawyer. In a Palestinian Authority television interview in July, Hussein revealed his attitude toward the Jewish state, saying that Israel's founding was worse than the founding of Nazi Germany because "Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while," whereas "the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft."
According to Palestinian Media Watch, he went on to call Israel a "giant monster" and indicated that people should take action against Israel saying, "We all want to step on its head, but talking is not enough. Everyone has their role."

He can freely denounce Israel in any Arab country.
Rachel Corrie committed suicide.
If you laydown in front of a bulldozer while it’s being operated you want to die.
Nazi Germany was the legitimate, lawful government of that nation. That is true.
Israel was stolen from the Philistines by God, argue with him. And the Philistines stole it from who knows whom.
It was the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites that held the land before the Israelites drove them out.
See Exodus 23.
Nazi Germany was neither legitimate nor lawful. Adolf Hitler was originally a Chancellor with limited powers, who had to contend with a President (Von Hindinberg), a coalition, a constitution and a legislature, as well as a political base. The coalition members either switched sides or had “accidents” that in the end left only one party in power. The President died of old age. The legislature, after a phony terrorist strike by “extremists” who burnt down the Reichstag, gave Hitler emergency powers not allowed under the constitution and that he promised never to use except of absolutely necessary to deal with this “crisis,” and then used every which way but loose to crush all dissent. He even liquidated a large portion of his political base when he rounded up the SA and shot most of them, but solidified his hold over the army. None of this was legitimate or lawful, but was the destruction of law and legitimate government. Not surprisingly, it resulted in a world war.
Indeed. The Philistines were European invaders who have no connection to the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians. And the Turks, who ruled the land prior to Israel, came from the steppes of Asia like the Huns and Mongols.

From the Wikipedia account of the incident in which she was killed, one fact sticks out at me. The driver of the bulldozer was Russian. That alone is insufficient, but I’ve known some Russians, and their world view generally can be summed up pretty easily. “The Israeli/American/EU response to this or that is inadequate, because they’re trying to be fair and just. Instead, kill a few of the rioters/activists/demonstrators/footpads as an example, and the rest will run away scared. That’s how we do it in Russia.” I have no idea whether the driver was just trying to do his job and mistakenly believe she had run away when in fact she was pinned beneath some rubble, or if he subscribed to this approach. But it’s possible that he did, and he very well might have deliberately run over her, and then prevaricated about looking behind him for a moment. Again, being Russian is not enough to convict the man. But it’s enough to raise a few questions.
This does not constitute a sudden qualm of sympathy for Rachel Corrie. She was a damned idiot trying to act “heroic” using Israeli soldiers as a prop because she was sure they would not hurt her, and it turned out just this once that she was mistaken. I invite any of these ISM activists to pull that sort of stunt in Syria, Sri Lanka, or any other place in the world where barbaric responses to civilian protests are a given. Try being “heroic” over there.
