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.

One State is All That’s Needed

Op-Ed by David HaIvri

Arab parents who murder their own children, in order to murder Jews: Fruits of Oslo

The borders of the State of Israel have never been determined by our leadership based on an understanding of our national interests. Rather, the borders of the state came about by chance, as a result of wars forced upon us by the Arab countries who banded together to annihilate us in 1948 and then again in 1967. The de-facto borders of the State of Israel are the result of the territory lost by the Arabs in those wars.

The so called “pre-1967” borders had no resemblance to the suggested UN Partition Plan of 1947, a plan that was denied by all Arab countries and – ironically-embraced by the Jewish leadership. At the time, they were happy just to be acknowledged in any way, and to receive any part of our historic homeland.

Arab residents of areas that were captured by the Israeli army in that first war in 1948 were granted full Israeli citizenship. They have since been granted all benefits awarded to Jewish Israelis and are expected to fulfill some civil obligations, but not all. They are exempt from military or national service, but benefit from university scholarships and representation in the Knesset. They enjoy the full extent of Israel’s democratic nature, who some take advantage of in an extreme way when they use their freedom of speech to defame the very State that grants them those freedoms and rights.

The areas captured by Israel in 1967 were never officially annexed by the State of Israel. The Arab residents were not incorporated officially into the State of Israel as citizens. Rather, their municipal services are provided by the Civil Administration, a subdivision of the Israeli government. Acting schizophrenically manner, Israel on the one hand refrained from annexing the area captured from Jordan, while on the other hand it invested major resources in developing and settling Jews in communities built throughout the region.

Since the 1977 Camp David Accords the Israeli leadership has been debating different forms of autonomy to be granted to the Arab population in areas captured from Egypt and Jordan in 1967. This debate has evolved into the presently popular concept of a “Two State” solution. At the basis of the theory of the Two State Solution is the establishment of a new Arab country called Palestine, which would be located on the territory captured from Egypt and Jordan.

This concept was tested when Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, and it failed terribly. All Jewish communities, homes and businesses were destroyed and the Jewish residents were displaced. The local “Palestinian” population elected their own government through democratic elections. The Islamic party Hamas won those elections and have been firing rockets into Israelis cities ever since. Not only has this development been a disaster in terms of the relations between Israel and the Arab population of Gaza (many of whom worked for Israeli employers before the change of government), but also for the local Arab population whose standard of living has deteriorated dramatically as a result.

US Report: Israel Hampers Training of West Bank Forces

Posted by Glezele Vayne on July 27, 2010

BS”D

by Eldad Benari of Israel National News

A report published on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in Washington accuses Israel of causing delays in the transfer of weapons, radios, vehicles, helmets and other equipment to the West Bank. These delays, according to the report, are hampering American efforts to train Palestinian Arab security forces in the West Bank.

The report’s purpose is to establish whether the US is getting value for the $392 million it has spent on training and rehabilitating the West Bank security forces since 2007, and was compiled after inquiries with US, Israeli and Arab officials between July 2009 and May 2010.

The report added that Israel publicly praises the effectiveness of security forces which in operate the West Bank, yet still causes delays which make it more difficult for the forces to act fully. For example, the report cites the impounding by Israeli customs of 1,000 AK-47 rifles despite prior approval of their import by the Israeli government. Another example is 1,400 radios (whose entrance into the West Bank for security purposes was previously approved) that US law enforcement authorities were forced to put into storage at a cost of $176,000 to the American taxpayer.

According to the report, there is evidence that that the Palestinian Arab security forces have markedly improved their efficiency, but Israel has blocked a US State Department proposal to set up a specialist counter-terrorist unit within the forces despite repeated calls on the forces to combat armed factions in the West Bank.

The report acknowledges that equipment shipments are frequently approved by Israel, though there can be delays of up to a year. It adds that Israel’s insistence on considering each shipment on a case by case basis also affects what is described as “non-lethal” equipment such as raincoats.

Notice from Dr. Paul Eidelberg

Posted by Glezele Vayne on July 23, 2010

BS”D

Dr. Paul Eidelberg has sent a newsletter out posting guidelines for organizing a resistance to any further expulsions in Eretz Israel. This would be an unmitigated disaster for not only Israel, but the world. The taste of blood would be in the jihadis mouths, and the reaction would be similar to that of a pool of sharks.

Dr. Eidelberg is asking his listeners and readers to post to everyone we know. I agree the situation in Israel is as serious as the tone of his recent newsletters indicate, thus I am doing my small bit to get the word out as to how to organize a resistance to another expulsion. Israel hasn’t recovered from the Gush Katif expulsion…it would take a miracle for her to recover from another one of any size, let alone the possibility of an expulsion of 650,000 Jews from Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem. (There is no “East Jerusalem”).

Dr. Eidelberg in his own words:

“I was asked by a reader what should be done to stop further “expulsion.” Here was my reply: Although I do not exclude mass demonstrations, they can only be effective if based on a grassroots movement. The battle begins in one’s own neighborhood. For openers, and to set the tone, action-oriented individuals in each neighborhood should form a small group to focus on the Jerusalem issue. They should invite appropriate speakers to define the religious and global significance of Jerusalem—how its surrender will intoxicate the Islamic world and lead to an explosion of jihad everywhere. They should expose Bibi’s despicable record regarding Oslo and Gush Katif. They should produce (1) placards, (2) bumper-stickers, and (3) attractive one-page handouts, with all three signifying, in diverse ways, “We are not going to tolerate any compromise on exclusive Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem.” “Jerusalem belongs exclusively to the Jewish people.” “Israel’s capital is Jerusalem—not Washington and not Riyadh.” “We are tired of Bibi’s appeasement of Israel’s enemies.” “Yielding to Arab terrorists and thugs is cowardly and disgraceful!” “We are fed up with spineless prime ministers!” “Jews worship God not Oslo and not Obama.” Also, abbreviate and distribute Caroline Glick’s June 21, 2005 article “A Coward for a Prime Minister.” Get connected to Jewish and Christian Zionist organizations in the US. Do not waste money on ads, except when needed to publicize a national conference in Jerusalem.”

Rabbis Show Letter from Sharon Promising Disengagement Gains

Posted by Glezele Vayne on July 15, 2010

BS”D

The Rabbinical Congress for Peace (RCP) marked the fifth anniversary of Israel’s disastrous withdrawal from Gaza by publishing a letter the group received from then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon dated July 18, 2005. The Rabbis had handed Sharon a Torah Ruling against ceding land but Sharon chose to ignore it. 

I believe that today, the benefit, peace and security of the Nation of Israel require the evacuation of the Gaza Strip, an area in which there is no chance of establishing a Jewish majority and which everyone knows will not be part of the State of Israel in a permanent accord,” Sharon wrote.

“At the same time, we are transferring the brunt of our efforts to the most important areas for safeguarding our future: the Galilee, the Negev, Greater Jerusalem, the settlement blocs and the security zones.

“I initiated the Disengagement because it is the best vehicle for a basic change in the national situation of the Jewish people. The departure from Gaza will have a decisive positive influence on all fields of life in Israel: security, economy and the quality of life in the country.”

Along with the letter from Sharon, the RCP re-published the Torah Ruling signed by almost 400 rabbis forbidding surrender of any land to foreigners. “The Disengagement proved again that the Torah Ruling against relinquishing land to enemies because it will make it easier for them to conquer the land is valid today more than ever,” the rabbinical forum said. 

The Rabbis expressed their “amazement” that Israel has established various inquiry committees on different issues but “has still not found time to set up an inquiry committee to investigate the heinous crime committed by the Israeli government of uprooting thousands of Jews from their homes through a Disengagement which led to hundreds of casualties and to the deterioration of Israel’s security to an all-time low.”

Flotilla is result of retreat“We hope that the Terkel Committee that is investigating Israel’s actions in trying to impose a Gaza Strip naval blockade will also investigate the genesis of what led to this situation,” said Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel Lewin, RCP Director-General. “The Committee must investigate what caused Israel to lose its deterrence. Turkey or any other country never dared to send provocative ships against Israel in the past.”

Anthropology Professor: Look at US Actions, Not Words

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 15, 2010

BS”D

by Derek Cling

Israel National Radio’s Tamar Yonah recently interviewed Anthropology Professor Francisco Gil-White, who specializes in anti-Semitism, the Arab-Israeli conflict, US geopolitical behavior, and the operation of the Western mass media. He discussed the motives and interplay between the International community, the United States, Iran and the Muslim regimes.

Gil-White who edits the website “Historical and Investigative Research,” where he writes documented articles on geopolitical behavior, with a special emphasis on its repercussions for the State of Israel, explains that the official pronouncements of the United States concerning Iran seem to be one of opposition to that country’s policies, “though, of course, other than words, it’s unclear what exactly the U.S. has been doing in order to harm Iran.”

At the same time, he says, official American representation also leads the public to believe that “the U.S. government is watching over Israel like a guardian angel, making sure that it has its best interests at heart when making geopolitical decisions.

“And then you’ve got an incredibly aggressive push in the last year from the Obama administration demanding that Israel reach a final status agreement with the Palestinian Authority, PLO [and] Fatah, to create a Palestinian state in strategic Israeli territory.”

The common interpretation that makes all these pronouncements consistent with one another, says Gil-White, is one where “Iran is a big danger, but the PLO has nothing to do with Iran and really means to make peace with Israel – and that’s why the U.S., which opposes Iran and has Israel’s best interests at heart, is pushing for a two-state solution between Israel and PLO Fatah.”

Based on his research, however, Gil-White claims that, in fact, the PLO Fatah has a close relationship with Iran. “The U.S. government is obviously aware that this relationship exists, and therefore, when it pushes for a Palestinian state run by PLO Fatah, it is really installing an arm of Iran inside the Jewish state,” says Gil-White.

“There’s no question that the U.S. government, the most powerful actor in the geopolitical arena, is the one leading this process – it knows what it’s doing,” he says. According to Gil-White, the U.S.-led diplomatic “so-called Peace Process” was forced upon Israel, and started with the Madrid conference [in 1991] that Israel reluctantly agreed to while under threat from the United States to lose a lot of its economic support and then led to the Oslo Peace Process. This is “the only reason the PLO is inside Israel borders right now,” he concludes.

Moreover, this process of the so-called diplomatic peace effort is manifest today “in the recent very aggressive diplomacy that the Obama administration has directed against Israel – apparently building Jewish homes in Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish State, is offensive to the American President.”

Based on his research on HIR, Gil-White also points to the fact that the U.S. does not, in fact, oppose Iran, but rather, supports it. The fact that the “peace” process weakens Israel, and rewards Arab terrorism and Islamic power is not such a contradiction “if you study the last 30 years of geopolitical relationships between the U.S. and Iran,” he says, “Year after year, ever since Ayatollah Khomeini. took power in 1979 — the outbreak of the Islamic revolution — foreign policy has always been designed to strengthen Iran. Of course, the American government’s public declarations are always of enmity towards Iran, but saying something is very cheap – it doesn’t cost anything.”

For many years, the Shah of Iran, Iran’s previous leader who was trying to westernize Iran, was a close ally to of the US government, Gil-White explains, and “the CIA built the Shah’s security service, Chavak, which was infamous for its violence, and its trampling over every single Iranian liberty. It was only in the last couple of years or so of the Shah’s rule that the US seemed to abandon him.” Then-US President Jimmy Carter started to take actions against the Shah, who was supposedly the America’s “westernized” ally because “the US wanted a regime change in Iran, and wanted the mullahs and the Shah out. One hypothesis is that the US had decided to follow a policy of sponsoring Islamic fundamentalism,” he says.

“One of the reasons why doing that was a smart idea in geopolitical terms is that the entire belly of the Soviet Union was populated – the Asian belly of the Soviet Union – with Muslims. Radicalizing those Muslims was a way of destabilizing the Soviet Union and this is something that worked very well in Afghanistan for example,” says Gil-White, “This is where Osama Bin Laden got his start – working for the CIA, training Afghan mujahideen inside the Pakistani border with Afghanistan and they set up a bunch of madrasas where people would be indoctrinated to the most fanatical Islamist ideology, and then they would be sent back into Afghanistan as terrorists to destabilize the Afghan regime – and this is what eventually produced the Soviet invasion in a debilitating war that helped destabilize the Soviet Union. This has actually been confessed to a French magazine by Zbigniew Brzezinski. who was Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser at the time.”

Israel Cannot Escape the God Issue

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 15, 2010

BS”D

I can’t say it better than Professor Eidelberg —

“Few people understand why Israel, undefeated in war, is withdrawing to her perilous pre-1967 borders.  Let me explain.

Israel has been led by prime ministers whose policy of “land for peace” belies the fact that Israel is engaged in a religious conflict with implacable foes who have said “peace means the destruction of Israel.”

It needs to be stressed that the futile and fatal policy of territory for peace contradicts the Torah—Israel’s raison d’être.  This inane and ignoble policy magnifies Arab (as well as western) contempt for the Jewish state, and encourages Muslim despots to wipe Israel off the map.  Israel cannot avoid or win this war as long as she is led by prime ministers who omit the God of Israel from the domain of statecraft.  Before continuing, let’s review the stages of Israel’s territorial retreat.

The “Vaɪkɪŋ” are Back

By stealth they arrived. Under cover of night, they pounced. They hacked their way into unsuspecting homes. The once sleepy village, who had heard of these dreadful pirates, plunderers — saw their prized possessions, their women and children violated and dragged off. If they lived, they didn’t live to see their loved ones again.

1,100 years ago, people shuddered at the thought of them. They are much more sophisticated these days. And they don’t arrive by snekkje anymore. Read the rest of this entry »

Who wouldn’t want to live in a community headed by such a mayor? Daniella Weiss is one of the loveliest, most well-spoken women I’ve ever heard. Peace begins in the heart, and this woman has peace. I see a woman here who knows how to be clear, uncompromising and kind…all at the same time.

She deserves to be Prime Minister of Israel.

“Palestine 2.0 is a monster with only one purpose, to create Holocaust 2.0.” — Sultan Knish’s Latest

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 19, 2009

BS”D

Dawid Walid, the Executive Director of CAIR in Michigan has challenged Walid Shoebat, claiming he never was a member of the PLO. In the following video, Mr.Shoebat provides evidence of his authenticity, and, since turning his life around, of his concern for Americans. Watch and decide for yourselves.

More importantly, watch and learn how Islam views the “kuffar”, how Muslims are allowed to lie to us, to use any means necessary to install sharia around the world. Then, ask yourselves, would the “Greatest Generation” be proud of how we’ve squandered our inheritance, the one they fought, sacrificed and died for???

Sultan Knish has more cold water to splash on our complacent, movie doped faces. Wake up or you will lose everything that means anything to you!

I’m beginning to think all I need to do every day is read Sultan Knish and then come to this site and go “What he said.”  There’s not a word that should be removed or that needs to be added. Having said that, I’m going to extract some quotes in an effort to tempt you to click the SK link and read on.

Who Needs a Palestinian State? by Sultan Knish

Some salient quotes (it’s hard to choose):

“Everyone, and by “everyone” I mean the denizens of Washington D.C.’s and Brussel’s government buildings, agrees that we need a Palestinian state.”

“To those who argue that a Palestinian State will build regional stability, the rational person must ask, how in the world has any of this contributed to regional stability?”

“Palestine was never a country or a state. It was the name given by the Roman occupation forces to a region they were administering, a region far larger than modern day Israel.”

“Israel did not come into being out of pity for the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust. Nor did it come into being thanks to US aid or support. Both of those however are common myths.”

“17 years after Oslo, the Palestinian Arabs have built nothing but death and destruction. Worse yet they’ve taken everything that was given to them and turned it into either a weapon or a bribe.”

“It is not a natural creature, because no Palestinian state ever existed throughout history. It is an artificial state whose existence has only one purpose. The destruction of Israel.”

“And that answers our question at last. Who needs a Palestinian state? Someone who is either ignorant, foolish or needs to destroy Israel.”

“The Two State Solution is not a formula for any kind of stability or end to the violence. It’s meant to take the violence to a whole new level. It is a formula for the destruction of Israel.”

“Palestine is not a state. It was never a state. It will never be a state. It is currently ruled by two factions who have both disowned a negotiated Palestinian state in favor of the destruction of Israel. It is not a country, it is a weapon.”

“Palestine is a gun aimed at the head of Israel with one goal, its destruction. Palestine is a gun aimed at the head of every Jew in the world, legitimizing the worst and ugliest kinds of bigotry.”

“Palestine is death. It exists only as a form of living death by a population taught to see themselves as willing martyrs to the bomb belt from birth.”

“The Cult of Death in Palestine and the war against Israel is only a preview for the West of things to come. Palestine is not a place, it is hate and homicide boiled down into myth. Palestine is not only in Israel. It is in Paris and London. It is in Madrid and Detroit. It is in Sydney and Moscow.”

Oy vey. All this tsuris. Az mah la’asot?

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 6, 2009

BS”D

For my non-Jewish readers, that translates something like, “Holey Moley, all this trouble.” Now slap your hand on your forehead, gasp a bit and say “So, now what do we do?” There a little Yiddish and Hebrew lesson all in one, complete with a bit of Middle Eastern drama.

Okay, so here’s some things to do that might help. I have just learned that the phones in Washington, DC are ringing off the walls with supporters of the two-state solution (i.e. the “piece plan”).  Sidenote: This is just the PLO’s “phased” plan of destruction, outlined in their covenant which, BTW, has not been changed one iota.

The fact that the phones are ringing off the walls supporting the two-state suicide plan does not mean there are more detractors of Israel than there are supporters in America. The government, eh…kind of wishy-washy, but the people are known for their overwhelming support of Israel. There are many Americans who are misinformed, due to a lack of accurate information on the MSM, but I believe this phone ringing thing I am hearing about is mostly evidence of a difference between liberal and conservative lifestyles.

Liberals (the hard left, not old school liberals) are overwhelmingly pro-Pali, (they like anything totalitarian, but that’s a whole ‘nuther book) and politics is pretty much their religion. Conservatives are usually busy with family and true religious obligations, and are not front and center 110% focused on politics.

So, we need to plotz the kids in front of a video game or a movie for a few minutes, catch our breath, get ourselves to the phone or on the computer and make ourselves heard. The vast majority of Americans are hearty supporters of Israel, but our senators and representatives won’t act on our convictions unless we tell them what they are. I know, they follow polls on everything else, so why not this? Maybe the polls aren’t accurate? I’m being optimistic. One letter, email or phone call, in their eyes, usually represents 20 people, because typically, only 1 out of 20 people bother writing, emailing or calling (leftists excluded).

House Contacts:

For a wealth of information, or if you want to contact David Bedein:

www.Israelbehindthenews.com

bedein@thebulletin.us.

Mr. Bedein can bring experts over on the Fatah to the US,  Canada and Europe. If anyone would like to help bring these experts over to speak, Mr. Bedein can find sponsors. He  emphasizes that the Fatah is still at war with Israel and it hasn’t changed. Despite the many words uttered by Yasir Arafat regarding the “peace of the brave”, besides the handshake with Yitzhak Raibn, the PA parliament never approved any peace agreement between Israel and the PA.

Jay Shapiro aired a relevant radio show on the 3rd of this month, discussing the basis of the Arab/Israeli conflict. Small portions are a a bit outdated, in that Mr. Shapiro speculates incorrectly (I’m sure he’s disappointed) on how Prime Minister Netanyahu will respond to US pressure for immediate territorial concessions.
