The official account. Again: the official account of the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s spokesperson to the Arab media on twitter – yes this one: @OfirGendelman – has too much time and apparently holds a “carte blanche” to doctor photos, neglecting morals nor credits whatsoever you name it, offends a brother and even dares to tweet it around.

It’s quite obvious this ‘diplomat’ did not enjoy any upbringing nor common sense at all and his ‘intelligence” is reduced to being awful successful in making  an utter fool of himself, as well as staining the so called business-card of Israel with these kind of ridiculous ‘effort’ to stain Islamic scholars and beyond recovery as it seems need slander to have a voice in stead of some factual information. Shame on you.

Remember Ofir: “Fun dayn moyl in gots oyern” (From your mouth in God’s ears – in Yiddish)

So what happened? The official Israeli prime minister spokesperson @ofirgendelman steals a photo of @MohamadAlarefe edits it than tweets it to @AvichayAdraee Like this:

About Dr. Mohammed Al-Areefi

Dr Al Arifi is a well-known scholar and lecturer from Saudia Arabia. He is a founding and honorary member of various Da’wah organisations, as well as being a member of their advisory committees. He is also a professor in King Saud University of Riyadh. He takes a special interest in Hadith literature and has received licenses for the chains of transmission for various Hadith texts from a number of scholars.

You can follow Mohammed Al-Areefi on twitter as well

Now I am quite sure brother Mohammed does not care the least for he already has been granted hasanat for this slander which targets him. For every effort, as we believe in Islam, to misguide a believer, those deeds will be wasted:

الذين كفروا وصدوا عن سبيل الله أضل أعمالهم

“Those who disbelieve and avert [people] from the way of Allah – He will waste their deeds.”
Surat Muhammed [47:1]


So “dear” Ofir, official slanderer of Israel, this is one of those deeds which will be wasted as I will take this occasion of 1 single tweet to highlight some of the injustice which is related to the Israeli habit of distorting facts.  Doctoring photos.

Discrediting people and even attempting to fire those – or worse literally bomb those – who speak truth. Like pressduring the latest assault on Gaza when Israel even directly and indiscriminately targeted media buildings. Not only Palestinian Press but Al Jazeera, Russia Today, BBC and so on.  Some died and one even lost his leg after it needed to be amputated.

And while established media watches in silence as Israel kills journalists in Gaza  (by RaniaKhalek) for they fear the black-lash of the main media’s occupier Israel’s Lobby I want to use this post as well as a reminder to ‘established’ journalists that your silence is complicity.

One of the martyrs bodies. Assassinated in Israel’s latest assault.

Did journalism and it’s ethics, your skills of investigative journalism really die or are they reduced for deployment on your employee benefits only? What on earth is going on in your heart and souls when you see a colleague being burned, literally to ashes? When you peeked into the databases for the footage.

scroll over the ones that depicted death press co-workers?

How in this world can you justify your biased work, when you know, you are covering and serving nonsense to the people from your white chair, as you silence your very own people who gave their lives to bring out the truth…

Unfortunately for Israel and it’s lobby there are those among us who do not get paid 92$ an hour for slandering and spreading lies on the internet because Israel is in need of a web war to save it’s bubble of lies and myths.  Some of us don’t care about money at all. We care about justice and truth and the last time I checked such is still free. You just have to open your eyes.

1 Single tweet.

Was enough for Israel even to attempt to fire Khulood Badawi working at UNOCHA.

A Palestinian sister. Dedicating her entire life to the well-being ot others. to A human with a golden heart and conscience. Who was accused of tweeting an old picture. While the facts still are being silenced that not Khulood but an entirely different person just tweeted a photo in the heat of attacks to show reality of every day Palestinian life under attacks.

At what time you decided to stop fighting or reporting on behalf of her ‘case’? Or do you allow Israel’s propaganda machine, Ofir an cohorts to silence her permanently? Or will you stand up, for once, to expose these kind of scams?


While Israel is pumping millions into the hasbara (propganda) machine, some media start to broadcast “Israel losing battle of words on social media” No stupid! It’s not about winning the hashtag-context. It’s about the truth prevailing and worldwide opening of eyes after decades long successful muting of such by the hasbaroids.

Millions invested by Israel and the lobby, to learn Israeli diplomats and cohorts to tweet for it’s all about PR. I guess Ofir did not attend the class on this subject:
Truth does not matter to Israel. Buttons do. To mute.

Mute all. Literally all who are able to convey the truth in whatever way. Never minding the massacre nor crimes laying behind Israel’s actions, as long as you don’t get to see nor hear the truth, silencing voices of justice in Palestine and beyond. While even Israeli affiliates of UNICEF seem to be allowed to call for genocide. Are you awake here?

Israel has a long standing reputation of doctoring pictures so you will keep a believer of the lies. It goes beyond imagination as the picture on the right shows.

Not even ashamed to ethnic photoshop an Philippine woman into a version which looks more ‘Ashekazi’.

It was Covered by 972 Magazine: War trauma, kid? Not if you’re Asian

In a weekend supplement of Ma’ariv who ran an exhaustive investigation of the effect the Palestinian rocket threat has on Israeli children living within their range. On the left is the “illustration” by one Ophir Bagon, which opened the story. On the right is the original photo.

See the difference?


After bombing the hell out of Gaza and before this pathetic tweet about Dr. Al-Areefi, Gendelman tweets his last tweet before “shabbat”:
“I wish a peaceful Shabbat to the people who live in southern Israel. Your resolve in the face of the rocket attacks is unbelievable.”

Click to enlarge.

The spokesperson posing  as religious religious non tweeting during shabbath have no problem at all to push the buttons which launch the missiles and bombs on Gaza on the same days. Nor do they seem to mind being in a shelter. They at least have one.

Which we can not say of Gaza. Which has been reduced way far worse than WWII Warsaw Ghetto. Literally not only attacked by assaults and massacres, but by all means possible. Deprivation. Deliberate policies of near starvation.

Withholding medical care or access to such which is a blatant violation of Art 55 and Art 56 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Never minding the 1000 GBU 39 bunker busters thrown on Gaza during the Cast Lead massacre in 2008-2009 which carried about 75 tons of depleted uranium. Not only killing in impact but assuring, getting cancer in Gaza also means a death sentence. A slow motion genocide.  And other weaponry used by Israel which constitute a crime on humanity.


While in Warsaw ghettos, Jewish people during the awful Holocaust used to hide their kids even in the waste waters of the ‘toilets’ of the ghetto so they would not be found, Gaza does not have buildings nor shelters, no, not even a single hole to put in the children for safety.  Dropping leaflets over Gaza to run. First one to impose a house-arrest over 1.7 million people to drop the day after another one to leave all houses. To which place?

For who forgot Warsaw, I dare you to watch this movie from Warsaw Ghetto during WorldWarII.

Jews in Warsaw, nor Auschwitz not any other extermination or deprivation camp did not die so their surviving offspring could become the new gatekeepers of extermination camps in 2012 “Israel”.

This, this is the leaflet the mainstream media forget to drop on your head:
The “Leaflet” to the World about it’s own forgotten Extermination Camp Gaza

Yet, aside from Gaza, the ethic cleansing not only targets Muslim or Christian Palestinians. Israel tweets photos of a sheikh and Main Stream Media neglects you to report about the latest ongoing Kristall Nacht for Africans in Israel as well! Israel’s WWII Drancy version of 2012 in the desert.

Forget all details. It is only about this

Israel, is not looking for peace, nor talks to achieve peace at all. In stead of reporting you factual information, it deliberately creates fuzz and propaganda, silences all reporting truth and lures you into counting rockets. So you will not notice, what really is going on.

Luckely not all do count.  Although the names of the martyrs and the stories are engraved in my heart, you will not see their horrific ends in your media.


Yet there is hope. Some reporters like Abby Martin do engage and attack Israel’s war on Truth. She was accused of supporting terrorism while she is fighting exactly that as well as the warcrime of targeting journalists in armed conflicts and war is.

More and more people every day opening their eyes for the horrendous crimes committed by Israel. A genocide since 1946

Started in 1946 before any excistence of “Israel” whatsoever, with the Kind David Bombing by zionist terror organisations, which cost the lives of 91 innocent people. So you know, who detonated the first bomb. That’s where you ought to start counting if you prefer to keep counting anyway:
Know the Facts.

For the record I also want to remember you Israel broke the ‘cease-fire’ now two times since it was instated. With the killing of 20 year old Anwar Qudaih and others shortly after the truce was official.

Your pathetic attempts to slander the Sheikh will not harm Islam. We are 2.1 Billion people. For a people which endured persecution throughout the ages you seemed to have adopted the ways of your own oppressors very well and even improved them, to become oppressors yourselves. And worse.

Your incitement and Islamophobia constitutes a  new “Jud Süss attempt” . On Muslims this time. Apparently you forgot, or all those who you try to convince also don’t remember, Goebbels Anti-Semitic campaign was launched to 22 Million viewers before any persecution of Jews even began in WWII. Without any internet by the way.

Nowadays, you are not only risking your own credibility but legitimacy as well by imposing your crimes on literally all non jewish people or as you love to call them ‘gentiles’ or ‘goyim”.

I may remind you that even Hebrew sources  relate of the ‘pious ones of the Gentiles,’ as the Talmud describes them. These, as the Jewish teachers themselves declare, are bound to observe the laws given to Adam and Noah, to abstain from idols, from blood, and from other things which will be mentioned further.’ ~ Quoted from The Seven Colors of the Rainbow by Rabbi Yirmeyahu Bindman

You will nor be able to destroy Islam, nor Christianity nor will your attempt to silence your own people and even rabbis in support of co-existence be a success. For there is only one race: the Human Race. And evetually the humans among this race will see through your veil of delusion.And see, you became exactly that which you feared once yourselves.

And if not…. Remember:

He who speaks untruths shall not stand before My eyes’
~ Psalms 101:7″


For all non-muslims who are interested in forming their own opinion about Islam in stead of blindly following propaganda I recommend you to the site of Kalamullah, where you can download many ebooks for free


As a Muslim I want to remind all ikwaan and akhawaat, and all those with a conscience of the next:  Why it is Fard Al-‘Ayn (personal obligation) to oppose, resists and protest ongoing onslaught, violence, suppression, deprivation of your brothers, sisters and the children, as well as not to stay silent on attacks on even a single sister or brother like this attack on Mohammed Al-Arefe:

Nu’man ibn Bashir (R.A.) the Prophet is reported to have said that

“The Muslims (the Ummah) are like the limbs of a man, where if the eye hurts the whole body feels pain and if the head hurts, the whole body feels pain and suffering.”

Related by Huzaifah (R.A.) the Prophet said

“Whoever does not take an interest in the affairs and problems of the Muslims, he is not of them. And whoever’s state is such that, each morning and evening, he is not loyal and earnest to Allah, his Apostle, His Book, the Islamic ruler and towards the Muslims, as a whole, he is not of them.”

Related by Jabir lbn Abdullah (R.A.) that he said

“I had taken a pledge at the hand of Rasulullah S.A.W. to observe Swallah (prayers), to pay Zakaah (charity due) and to be a sincere well-wisher of every Muslim.” The Fact that the Prophet S.A.W. took the pledge or promise from the companions, for being a sincere well – wisher of the Muslims together with that of observing Swalaah and Zakaah which are important pillars of Islam – shows the importance attached by him to the matter.

Anas (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah S.A.W. once said

“I swear by the Holy Being in whose power my life is, any one of you cannot be a true believer unless he desires for his fellow-brother what he desires for himself.”

Abu Hurairah (R.A.) relates that the Prophet (S.A.W.) said

“A Believer is a mirror to a fellow-believer and he is his brother, he removes his defect (or deficiency) and guards him from behind. (In cases where he is unaware etc.).”

It is related by Jareer Ibn Abdullah (R.A.) that the Prophet (S.A.W.) said

“Those whose hearts are devoid of mercy for others, will not obain the mercy of Allah.”

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala guide us all to be among the righteous and to grant us his blessings and enable us, to turn the hearts. And turn the tongues now speaking evil  to speak truth out of respect for His Creation and Mankind. We did nor we do not own this life which is granted to us, it’s of our children and may He guide us all to act for their sake and  those of the nations to live in peace and respect for eachother. And may Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala grant the shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and solace to their loved ones who are left behind, and ease it for them.  Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil ‘Alameen.

As-Salaam ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu wa  Magferatuhu

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
