Tom Friedman Promotes Building Freeze Extension

Not surprising considering Friedman’s checkered history vis-a-vis Israel. He offers the same tired argument…just give ’em one more chance to see if they’re serious. In the meantime, as the Arabs play their duplicitous games, Jews are maimed and murdered. Enough already.

As memorials continue for former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, who was assassinated 15 years ago, a former “proud Leftist” is calling to end accusations that right-wing incitement preceded Rabin’s death. Popular entertainer and media personality Dudu Elharar told Arutz Sheva’s Hebrew-language news service that “Rabin is spinning in his grave” over finger-pointing by the political Left.

Many on the Left have accused nationalists of calling for violence against Rabin and other politicians in the days of the Oslo Accords, shortly before the killing. Elharar tells a different story.

“Until 1992 I voted for Meretz, and in 1996 I voted for Labor… I was in the ‘peace camp,’ I was a proud leftist, I saw the right-wing protests of the time through a leftist’s eyes, and I can tell you that there was no incitement. Not even a hint of incitement,” he stated.

The use of the term “incitement” to demonize the Right is itself a form of incitement, he said.

Precisely. — Commentary from Glezele Vayne

Journalist Reveals The PA’s ‘Palestine Plot’

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 21, 2010

“There’s a method to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas’ ongoing refusal to negotiate seriously with Israel”, journalist Uri Elitzur told Israelnationalnews in an interview – “and unfortunately, his plan has a relatively good plan of succeeding”.

Elitzur laid out the plot in the weekend edition of Hebrew newspaper Mekor Rishon, of which he is one of the editors, last Friday. “The PA’s insistence that it will walk out of the talks if Israel ends the building freeze in Judea and Samaria” he says, “is a political gambit for something Abbas and company are far more interested in: An Israeli agreement on the borders of a Palestinian state before resolving other sensitive issues, such as security, Jerusalem, and PA demands that descendants of Arabs who abandoned Israel in 1948 be allowed to return to their former homes”.

“The strategy is apparent to anyone who bothers to look”, Elitzur says. “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu knows that the talks are a game, Abbas knows the talks are a game, and both are playing well.” The game, in this case, is to pass the blame for failure of the talks to the other party. U.S. President Barack Obama knows it’s a game, too, Elitzur says – and he also knows how far he can push Israel. “Obama knows that an American president is not a Caesar who can do whatever he wants, and there is a limit to the pressure the White House can impose on Israel.” Given that both Israel and the PA have so many red lines that they dare not cross, the talks were doomed to fail, even before they started, Elitzur says.

So why bother? “Behind this endless game lies an important consideration: What happens the day after the talks fail? What is the alternative plan?” Unlike Israel, Elitzur says, the PA has such a plan: To back Israel into a corner and get Netanyahu to agree to a “shelf agreement” – meaning that most of the impassable issues would be put “on the shelf” for the time being, while the one issue that the PA really wants to see resolved – the borders of the Palestinian state – are decided right now. Tsipi Livni actually agreed to this when she was Prime Minister, Elitzur says.

If the borders between Israel and Palestine are delineated, Elitzur says, the PA can declare an official Palestinian state – one that has a reasonable chance of being accepted by the rest of the world. Contrary to popular thinking, the PA would not be able to get away with declaring a state unilaterally – not after they signed agreement after agreement that specifies negotiations as the only legitimate path to a PA state.

Carter Loves Hamas Because He HATES Menachem Begin

Posted by avideditor on April 9, 2008

Carter hates liberty and truth and loves receiving money from Islamo-Fasicst form Fraudi Arabia. Carter not only wrecked Iran, forced Israel to give up land, and destroyed the US economy he is now meeting with terrorist. After lying through his teeth with him book and trying to poison the minds of future generations he is trying to empower the terrorist. Can he die already?

Carter Loves Hamas Because He HATES Menachem Begin: “Its almost old news already, the worst president in United States History, Jimmy Carter, will be meeting with Hamas in a few weeks:

Fox News— The Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported Tuesday that Carter was planning a trip to Syria for mid-April, during which he would meet with Khaled Meshal, the exiled head of the Palestinian terror group Hamas, on April 18.

Deanna Congileo, Carter’s press secretary, confirmed in an e-mail to FOXNews.com that Carter will be in the Mideast in April. Pressed for comment, Congileo did not deny that the former president is considering visiting Meshal.

‘President Carter is planning a trip to the Mideast next week; however, we are still confirming details of the trip and will issue a press release by the end of this week,’ wrote Congileo. ‘I cannot confirm any specific meetings at this point in time.’

The State Department has designated Hamas a ‘foreign terrorist organization,’ and some groups hold Meshal personally responsible for ordering the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack once said of the prospect of meeting with Meshal, ‘That’s not something that we could possibly conceive of.’

Everyone is now reporting the Carter meeting but no one is reporting the reason BEHIND the meeting. You see, Jimmy Carter has an obsessive, frothing at the mouth-type hatred of former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

Ken Stein (the man whose resignation over the Peanut’s book, started the exodus from the Carter Center) wrote an extensive article in of Middle East Quarterly last year More than just correcting the mistakes in Carter’s trashy opus, Stein (who worked with Carter on the book The Blood of Abraham and was director of the Carter Center until his resignation) gave us insight into Carter’s heart and why he [Carter] hates Israel so much.

Jimmy Carter is obsessively fostering hatred for a Ghost. Jimmy Carter Hates Israel and loves Hamas because he hates Menachem Begin. Carter feels that Begin cost him the 1980 election and also cost him the opportunity to be known as the greatest peacemaker ever in the history of the world.

Carter thinks the reason Israel STILL will not leave the disputed territories is the legacy of the late Israeli Prime Minister The intransigence of Begin and his successors, Carter believes, was compounded by a failure of U.S. political leaders to pressure the Israeli government to’ correct its policy’.

HEY JIMBO! GIVE THE GUY A BREAK HE PASSED AWAY A LONG TIME AGO….GET OVER IT !!!!…Carter’s Obsessive Hatred of Begin reaches almost comic proportions.

Stein gives examples:

  • Carter’s animosity toward Begin has grown with time. He blames Begin for refusing to negotiate over the West Bank. Not only did this deny Carter a more complete peace deal, but, Carter believes, it also institutionalized itself in Israeli policymaking, worsening the Palestinians’ plight. Since Begin took office on May 17, 1977, ending the Labor movement’s hegemony in Israeli political life, Carter has repeatedly blasted Israeli prime ministers for what he terms the creation of a ‘horrible’ and ‘terrible’ state of affairs for the Palestinians in areas of east Jerusalem, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip
  • Skepticism of Carter’s intentions may have convinced Begin to take a harder line about the West Bank, which, in line with biblical terminology, he called Judea and Samaria. During his tenure as prime minister, Begin forbade the negotiation agenda to include the West Bank and those portions of Jerusalem that the Israeli government annexed after the 1967 Six-Day war. This refusal to negotiate became Carter’s core disagreement with Begin. Carter realized that with Begin adamant against further concessions, he had no tangible item to offer to the Palestinians or other Arab leaders to reach a broader peace agreement. With Begin not offering a fallback position, Carter could not initiate a conclusive Israeli-Palestinian negotiating process. He never forgave Begin.
  • A point he has repeatedly made when speaking to my students, his animus toward the late Israeli leader is limitless. This became evident when we were writing The Blood of Abraham, and Carter insisted on asserting that Begin ‘wanted to expand Israeli borders to both sides of the Jordan River.’ In fact, this is anachronistic. True, this had been Begin’s view prior to Israel’s independence in 1948, but it was not, as Carter implied, Begin’s position after his twenty-nine years in the Knesset (parliament) or during his premiership. During chapter editing, I brought the error to Carter’s attention. He declined to correct it.
  • The Negotiations with Egypt was really two against one: During the difficult negotiations between Egypt and Israel, Carter and his advisers tried to get Sadat to engage in a collusive scheme: They would encourage Sadat to make ‘deliberately exaggerated’ demands. The White House would then intervene to ‘compel’ Cairo to scale back its demands in exchange for Israeli concessions. Then-national security advisor Brzezinski explained that Washington would ‘apply maximum leverage on Israel to accommodate,by keeping the West Bank’s political future on the table for future negotiations. That Carter risked possible Israeli-Egyptian peace in an effort to extract greater concessions from Begin underscores the tension in their relationship.
  • Carter also blames difficulties with Begin for undermining his re-election. In early 1980, with the critical New York Democratic primary looming, Mondale urged Carter to repudiate the U.S. vote for U.N. Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 465,which had condemned Israeli settlement activity. According to Barack Obama’s Adviser Brzezinski:

Jewish voters swung heavily over to Senator [Edward] Kennedy, ensuring Carter’s defeat. The set-back prolonged the Carter-Kennedy contest. Sadat did not want a final showdown on the Palestinian problem prior to the return of the Sinai to Egypt. Without pressure from Sadat, our own incentive to push Israel hard was much decreased. Begin proved himself to be a skilled manipulator … adroit at delaying tactics and in diversionary public appeals … by mid-June it was clear even to Mondale that Begin wanted Carter defeated.


Carter reminds me of Herbert Lom in the old Pink Panther movies, he played Clouseau’s Boss who hated the Peter Sellers character so much that he kept trying to kill him. Lom’s character keeps hurting himself in his attempts and eventually winds up insane.

Such is Jimmy Carter’s sick hatred of Menachem Began. The man has been dead for sixteen year’s and Cater allows his hatred to stew, effect his decision making, and cause him to ruin any legacy that he might have had.
