“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

Photobucket
He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

28 Seconds of Truth at the UN Human Rights Council By Hugh Fitzgerald
Sunday, October 10, 2021

Hillel Neuer

Jihad Watch : Of all the various U.N. bodies, the most anti-Israel and most antisemitic of all – and the competition is stiff, with many strong contenders – is the U.N. Human Rights Council. It is that body which has an Item #7 on its permanent agenda, which requires it at every session to investigate and prepare reports on so-called “violations” of Palestinian human rights by Israel. The UNHRC has passed almost as many resolutions denouncing Israel as it has passed against the other 193 members of the U.N. But it could have been worse.

After all, in 2020 the UN General Assembly did itself proud by passing 17 resolutions against the tiny Jewish state and only 6 against all the other 193 countries combined. Among the current UNHRC members passing judgment on Israel are such stalwart supporters of human rights as China, Cuba, Russia, Bolivia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Libya, and Venezuela. The current president of the UNHRC is Nazhat Shameem Khan of Pakistan. Need I say more?

The other day, Hillel Neuer of the indispensable NGO UN Watch tried to give a video presentation before the UNHCR about what some UNRWA teachers are posting on their Facebook pages. He had all of 28 seconds to speak before Nazhat Shameem Khan had the Council’s Secretariat shut his video down.

Here is exactly what Khan and Neuer said:

Khan: Thank you. And I now give the floor to Ingenieurs du Monde [UN Watch]

Neuer: Madame President, is UNRWA supporting peace? Let us consider UN Watch’s recent report on the teachers they hire by looking at their social media.

Nahed Sharawi, an UNRWA math teacher in Gaza, posted a picture of Adolf Hitler, along with “quotes to enrich and enlighten your thoughts and minds.”

Husni Mash, an UNRWA teacher in the West Ban, posted antisemitic conspiracy theories about how Jews control the world, created the Covid virus, and seek to destroy Islam.

Esraa Abdul Rahim, an UNRWA…”

Khan: I ask the Secretariat to pause [i.e., to shut down] this video.

I have noticed that in the course of this video derogatory, insulting, and inflammatory remarks have been made which in particular refer directly to specific individuals. This amounts to personal attack against these individuals and it is not acceptable in this forum.

This statement is out of order, and I give the floor to the next speaker, the Palestine Return Centre, Limited.

I assume that Neuer identified his group as “Ingenieurs du Monde” so that he might have the possibility of addressing the UNHCR, which would likely not have happened had he identified himself as being with the NGO UN Watch.

Neuer spoke for exactly 28 seconds – 28 seconds of truth out of thousands of hours, year after year, of anti-Israel lies at the UNHCR. He managed to name, and to describe, the disturbing Facebook pages of two UNRWA teachers. The first was Nahed Sharawi, a math teacher in Gaza, who posted a photograph of Adolf Hitler on his Facebook page and offered “quotes to enrich and enlighten your thoughts and minds,” no doubt linked to the photo. Too bad that Neuer, wanting to name as many people as he could in what he undoubtedly knew would be a short appearance, hadn’t time to report what Sharawi had posted in order “to enrich and enlighten [Palestinian] thoughts and minds.”

Neuer then mentioned “Husni Mash, an UNRWA teacher in the West Ban, [who] posted antisemitic conspiracy theories about how Jews control the world, created the Covid virus, and seek to destroy Islam.”

As for the third teacher, all Neuer managed to say before his video was shut down was this:

“Esraa Abdul Rahim, an UNRWA…”

Then Madame Khan, a true daughter of Pakistan, horrified at what Neuer had managed to say In his 28 seconds, immediately had the video shut down. A stunning act of censorship, captured on video for all to see, by the UNHRC’s Madame President, determined at all costs to protect members of UNRWA’s staff from being revealed as antisemites (an admiring photo of Hitler tells us all we need to know about Nahed Sharawi) and crazed conspiracy theorists, such as Husni Mash, insisting that Jews control the world, created the Covid virus, and seek to destroy Islam. The full report on Neuer’s video appearance and shutdown is here. Here is the video of Hillel Neuer:


“UNHRC stops video quoting antisemitic posts by UNRWA teachers,” i24 News, October 3, 2021:

President of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Nazhat Shameem Khan on Friday [October 1] cut off a video presentation by UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer quoting antisemitic social media posts by UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) teachers.

After stopping the video, Khan said that “insulting and inflammatory remarks” were made that amount to “personal attacks” against individuals. She then went on to say that the “statement is out of order” before giving the floor to the UK-based Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), which has been accused of having ties with Hamas.

What “personal attacks” did Khan have in mind? Neuer reported that Nahed Sharawi had posted a photo of Hitler, and had offered on the same Facebook page, in his own words, “quotes to enrich and enlighten your thoughts and minds.” That’s it. No “derogatory remarks.” No “personal attacks.” The same is true of the one sentence Neuer delivered about Husni Mash, whom he said had on social media had “posted antisemitic conspiracy theories about how Jews control the world, created the Covid virus, and seek to destroy Islam.” No editorializing, nothing made up. Everyone is free to visit Mash’s Facebook page to see his conspiracy theories on display.

It is altogether fitting that, having shut down the truth-teller Hillel Neuer after 28 seconds, Khan would then give the floor to a speaker from a group, the Palestine Return Centre, whose stock in trade is lies, and that both the German and Israeli governments accuse of having ties to the terror group Hamas. A 2011 intelligence service report of the German Ministry of the Interior found that “Hamas does not operate openly in Europe. Instead it uses, for instance, the Palestinian Return Centre in London as a forum.”

But that Hamas connection wouldn’t bother Nazhat Shemeem Khan. She was greatly relieved to have cut Neuer off after 28 seconds, limiting the damage he might have done to UNRWA’s reputation. Now the Human Rights Council instead would hear, straight from Gaza, the latest Palestinian trumped-up grievance against Israel, that it was denying Gaza water, when in fact Israel recently built a fourth pipeline to deliver more water to Gaza, and has supplied Gaza with the Watergen technology that produces water out of the circumambient air. But why should President Khan care about any of that?

Neuer was highlighting [in his brief appearance] a recent UN Watch report that, according to the organization’s website, “exposed more than 100 teachers, school principals and other employees that praise Hitler, propagate hatred against Jews and support terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians on social media.”

In response to the allegations in the report [of Neuer’s NGO, UN Watch] , UNRWA announced that it was investigating 10 of its staffers to determine if any of them violated “social media policies that prohibit personnel from engaging in non-neutral behaviors online,” according to a press release from UNRWA.

Why, after the report was released by Hillel Neuer’s NGO about UNRWA that has “exposed more than 100 teachers, school principals, and other employees that praise Hitler, propagate hatred against Jews and support terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians on social media,” is UNRWA being allowed to investigate itself? And why, when Neuer has identified more than 100 staffers as antisemites who “praise Hitler and propagate hatred against Jews,” is UNRWA going to investigate only 10 members of its staff? On what basis has it decided to ignore the other ninety? Is UNRWA afraid, as I suspect, of what it might find out and, still worse, might have to act on?
