When supporters of Israel talk about alleged Palestinian terrorism, tell them about the Stern Gang, Haganah, and other Zionist terror organizations for Israel’s “independence.” Israel was founded as a terrorist nation-state and settler regime in 1948, and has maintained its existence and colonial rule over the Palestinians through violence ever since. These are the same people leading racist mobs against African immigrants in the country just a few months ago.

A wake up call to all the ahistorical drones defending Israel, touting the myth that it just wanted peace in 1948 but all the evil Arabs invaded:

The ethnic cleansing of Palestine began before the 1948 war.

There are three especially important massacres that the Zionist gangs carried out against Palestinians in that period. These massacres were not a coincidence, they were not a “reality of war”, they were calculated and designed to instill terror in the Palestinian population, and as a result, drive as many to flee their lands as possible:

The Deir Yassin Massacre, in which over 107 unarmed civilians were murdered with cold blood, happened in April 1948.

The Tantura Massacre, in the north, after the fall of Haifa. It resulted in over 240 Palestinian deaths. When did this happen? April 1948.

The Arab-Israeli war began in May 1948.

These massacres happened before the war even started. They were in fact one of the main reasons for the intervention of the Arab armies in the first place.

The third massacre, is the Al-Dawayima Massacre, in the middle regions of Palestine. It resulted in over 450 Palestinian deaths. 280 men, and the rest women and children. This happened in October the same year.

Notice that these areas were chosen specifically in every populated region, so that the news travels as fast as possible to every Palestinian.

The Zionists would let a few children “escape” to tell everyone about the massacres. There is evidence of rape and mutilation of corpses. These three massacres created so much terror, that many Palestinians abandoned their lands and hoped to seek refuge in territories under Arab control.

Those who did not move, were of course, removed by force eventually.

This is the birth of the state of Israel. And no amount of Green energy initiatives and Gay Pride parades can cover up the blood seeping from its very roots.

If you think all Black people’s blogs are “social justice” blogs, you’re racist.

I read some newspaper article recently that pretty much summed up Tumblr and the responses to it this way—privileged people who come here are shocked to see marginalized people talking about their experiences, so they think everyone’s just obsessed with social justice, rather than talking about their own lives.

Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay

I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:

Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.

I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.

The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’

Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.

Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them. 

I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts. 

Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.

I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.

Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.

Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.

Matthew 8:5-13

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.

In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.

The thing that makes this skit so weird, and so funny, is that the parts you find funny have a lot to do with how you identify yourself.

Really, the audience was probably laughing at two different things.

Black America was laughing at white America.

Black people know that love and equality are nothing to be afraid of, but they also know that all of the things that President Pryor was talking about: black access to education, black participation in government and industry, Islam, interracial relationships — these things make a lot of white people nervous.

In short, as cruel as it sounds, a lot of minorities find white racist fear and naiveté absolutely hilarious. (Think of it as an alternative to being angry all the time).

But a lot of white people watched this, and thought that the joke was supposed to be that the first black president would be a total monster. It was funny to have their biases confirmed. In fact, there’s more than a few people out there that still don’t get the joke.

So it was no wonder that when Chapelle’s show came out, with skits like ‘Black Reparations’, which again, poked fun at white America’s fears (read: guilt) and assumptions about blacks, that a lot of white people didn’t get the joke. A lot of people saw the ‘reparations’ skit and simply thought:

‘Oh, wow, that’s totally true! If reparations happened,

black people would spend all of their money on fried chicken’.

It confirmed their expectations. And they laughed. And Dave left.

Here’s what Paul Mooney, who wrote the President Pryor script, had to say about the phenomenon of white reactions to black comedy:

When I imitate middle-class white speech, I see a flicker of unease cross the faces of the white people in the audience. Then, when I go into ghetto riff, the smiles return. They’re fine as long as I am making fun of the same kind of people they make fun of — chinks, spics and niggers. But as soon as I start talking about them, I can clear a room!
