Interview with Bat Ye'or

If you have some time to spend reading, I highly recommend this interview with Bat Ye'or, the author of Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. When you're finished reading it, ask yourself if you, or anyone you know, sound like the Europe that has risen post-1973. When CAIR starts talking about increasing harrassments and attacks on Arab-Americans, do you nod, and see parallels to the civil rights movement of the 1960? When you hear that Israel is putting up a fence to keep out suicide bombers, do you relate it to South Africa's aparteid? If you said yes to either of these questions, do some reading: and not books recommended by comment-leavers on Indymedia.

An excerpt:

Outraged that Israel had won the war against all odds, with help from the U.S., the oil-producing members of the Arab League unilaterally quadrupled the price of oil and cut production by 5 percent a month. Additionally, they imposed an oil embargo on the nations considered friendly to Israel--the U.S., Denmark and Holland. France and Germany panicked. On November 6, 1973, the nine countries of the European Economic Community met in Brussels and issued a joint resolution that reversed the intent and meaning of United Nations Resolution 242, and declared illegal all territory Israel had gained in its defensive 1967 war. Furthermore, the EEC demanded that henceforward “the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people” be included in any definition of peace.
