'Black spinster' label pinned on Condi Rice

JERUSALEM While U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been in the Middle East meeting regional alongside Israel's military campaign in Lebanon, media outlets controlled by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party the past few days have been using racist rhetoric in their reports, referring to the American representative as the "black woman," "raven," "colored dark skinned black lady" and "black spinster."
The Palestinian media coverage follows an article last week in which WND reported senior Fatah members staged an anti-American protest outside the main government building in Ramallah while Abbas met with Rice. Most media coverage of last Wednesday's Ramallah protests claimed ralliers were affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
According to a translation by Palestinian Media Watch, the PA daily Al Hayat detailed Wednesday's Ramallah protests in which Rice was described as a "raven" who "brings only destruction."
Al Hayat featured pictures of ralliers brandishing anti-Rice placards, some reading, "Murderer Rice go to Hell" and "Get out." One placard had Rice drinking the blood of dead babies and stating, "I need more blood."
A cartoon last week in the PA controlled Al Quds depicted Rice pregnant with a monkey. A caption read, "Rice speaks about birth of new Middle East."
In a previous article by Al Hayat, Rice is described three times as the "black woman," and her father, who was an ordained Presbyterian minister, was called the "black clergyman [who filled Rice's head with Bible stories]." The article warned, "Beware of this 'black spinster,' we don't want to say 'the black widow' out of respect for her femininity and her intelligence."
A report this weekend by Palestinian Media Watch stated, "In addition to the offending news articles, the PA society is orchestrating demonstrations, children's activities, and hateful visual displays all personally attacking Condoleezza Rice."
WND reported from the scene in Ramallah last week as hundreds of protesters gathered outside a meeting between Abbas and Rice, many chanting, "Down with America," "[Hezbollah leader Hassan] Nasrallah hit America," "Fire rockets into Tel Aviv," and "We don't need American money."
Palestinian police clashed with some protesters who tried to shove their way into the government building.
A group of ralliers who said they were affiliated with Fatah told WND they would try to charge Rice when she emerged.
The main protest organizer, who was outside leading the crowd, was Zyad Abu Ein, a senior Fatah official and general manager of the PA's Ministry of Prisoners. Ein is well known to be a close Abbas confidante and is considered one of the most important members in Ramallah of Fatah's Revolutionary Council.
Ein told WND aside from last week's street protests near the Abbas-Rice meeting, he asked Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails to stage what he called a "day of rage" against Rice's visit by not cooperating with prison wardens.
I'm sure representatives from the NAACP will release a statement shortly denouncing the PA's remarks.
If you don't mind, I won't hold my breath waiting for that press release :-)
The "Religion of Peace" proves once again...Find 'em Kill 'em.
Dr Rice is only single because we haven't met ....yet....
I am so happy that we have some adults in the White House for a change, particularly at this crucial time in history. I do believe that God has a hand in this.
If she chose to dignify these silly Palestinian insults with a response, I imagine Dr Rice might respond with something like "sticks and stones may break my bones..."
I am certain that the line of similar-minded men is very long, and certainly includes me :-)
The combination of beauty, extreme brilliance, tremendous abilities and a VERY likeable personality is a rare one indeed.
Will Al and Jesse gnash their teeth over this?
I have no doubt that her response would combine eloquence, brevity and consummate statesmanship in a manner that would knock them back on their heels.
They don't have the necessary courage to expose themselves to the anger of the PA.
It is a lot safer to insult and denounce our country.
You won't get any arguments from me :-)
Is Condi single or married?
> I have no doubt that her response would combine eloquence, brevity and consummate statesmanship in a manner that would knock them back on their heels.
Silly me, you are quite right. Dr Rice has class, good taste, talent, dignity and superb manners.
BTW, isn't it ironic: on the one hand, militant Muslims in a murderous froth over a few innocuous cartoons of The Prophet. On the other hand, said militant Muslims making clearly offensive and patently racist cartoons of Dr Rice...
I guess there's one standard of acceptable behavior for militant Muslims, and another for Dhimmis...
What can one expect from a bunch of satan worshipping, woman denigrating , bunch of terrorists?b
it probably isn't because World Net Daily's unreliable. Human evolution is inherently racist. if supposed races were separated for tens of thousands of years, there would be a gradient of more evolved races (subspecies) and less evolved ones. As mankind has only been somewhat separated for some five thousand years and have largely kept some contact with each other, there wouldn't probably be races of humans around the world (and there aren't).
