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

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 6, 2009


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:

House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia

The chairman is New York Representative  Gary Ackerman

Senate contacts:

Chairman Casey of Near East Subcommittee of the US Senate

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



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.

78%, eh. Maybe the Stats are Phoney?

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 5, 2009


So, I see the Obama Administration, complete with his own token Israeli, Rahm Emmanuel, is not wasting any time pressuring Israel to commit national suicide. Did 78% of American Jews really vote for Barak Obama?

For insightful reading on this, I suggest Sultan Knish’s excellent post, Who did Jews really vote for in the 2008 Presidential Election?

Below are some excerpts from the Sultan Knish post:

“But there are of course two major reasons for putting out phony numbers for the Jewish vote.

”First of all a phony Jewish landslide helps cover up the real landslide of fraud that really brought Obama to power. Imaginary Jewish voters coming out in droves for Obama helps conceal the multiple voting ACORN frauds, the ballots thrown out and replaced and the whole ugly litany of deceit that forms the 2008 Presidential election’s true numbers.

”Second of all it creates the illusion of a broad Jewish consensus supporting Obama. This will be key in silencing internal Jewish criticism, moderating any Jewish newspapers that dared to criticize the false messiah… all in preparation for his crackdown on Israel.”

And here comes the crackdown: MK Katz: Pakistan Situation Proves Dangers of 2-State Solution.

This article discusses Rahm Emmanuel’s views, how disturbing they are to Israelis, particularly given Emmanuel’s family history. His father was in the Irgun. We have a name for the men and women, who, during the Holocaust, betrayed their own fellow Jews in order to save their own necks…”Kapo”. We’ll have to come up with a new term for a Jew who does it just for fun.

Excerpt from the Arutz Sheva article:

“In other words,” Katz continued, “we have to bring ourselves to the brink of extinction by allowing Hamastan into Judea and Samaria.  And this is the idea of a Jew, Rahm Emanuel – a Jew whose father fought in the Etzel (Irgun) against the British for the future of the State of Israel, but whose son, born in America, identifies with the most left-wing opinions, whose significance is the destruction of the State of Israel. I think this has to be stated very clearly.”

Back to Sultan Knish:

”So what was the real 2008 Presidential Jewish vote? The short answer is we’ll probably never know, but it also probably looked a more like Reagan vs Carter, than Gore vs Bush. And if the country ever makes it intact through the other side of the Obama junta, we can begin working toward a true history of what truly happened in the 2008 election.”

In a more recent post by Sultan Knish, entitled Obama’s Plan to Destroy Israel, he describes the various tools in Obama’s arsenal for putting the screws on Israel —

“On the military side, Obama’s people will make their non-existent efforts to stop Iran’s nukes conditional on more concessions to terrorists. Since Israel will never be able to make enough concessions and since Obama is working with Iran, rather than working to stop Iran’s nukes, this is a hollow charade.”

On Israeli concessions —

The more Israel will offer, the more the Obama Administration will tighten the screws. No offer will be good enough, and Israel will be blamed for every breakdown in talks and every bit of violence that takes place. The media will portray Israel and particularly Netanyahu as extremist and intransigent. Hamas will be slowly whitewashed in the media, the same way that Arafat’s goons were, (assuming that they prove more willing to cooperate in creating a positive media image of themselves than Ahmadinejad is.)

“The plan is to destroy Israel, and to do it by pushing Israel to the edge of the cliff and then over the cliff. Israel’s enemies will be getting top of the line US military equipment. Israel will not. Israel will be squeezed economically until the Netanyahu government collapses, leaving a weak left wing leader like Livni in charge of Israel, and in charge of acceding to the new Pharaoh’s demands.”

Sultan Knish understands the cynical plan better than most I’ve read. To read the entire post click HERE.

Sultan Knish in conclusion:

“Meanwhile so-called American Jewish groups will support Obama all the way, some because they were created precisely for that purpose, e.g. J-Street, and others because they have been hijacked, cowed or subverted.

“That is the game plan and some of it’s coming. The rest is already here.”

The red flags have been flying all over the place  for decades, spanning  several US Administrations, Democrat and Republican. The Obama Administration is characterized by the personality of the cult leader, Barak himself. He is a smooth talking, gifted speaker, particularly in tune with the American experience, knowledgeable enough to know what we want to hear, and willing to say it, to lie to us while doing exactly what he wants to do…dismantle Israel, while concurrently undoing America as we know it. He’s well on his way on both counts.

At Northeast Intelligence Network, Doug Hagmann, who refers to Obama as Captain Chaos, has written two articles that touch directly on this subject: This is Just the Beginning, and The US Abandonment of Israel, stated that the US Administration under Obama would be turning against Israel in the near future.

Excerpts from NIN:

31 December 2008: Northeast Intelligence Network director Doug Hagmann interviewed a highly-placed U.S. intelligence official late yesterday who not only confirmed rumors about escalated and more intensive Israeli military operations against the Muslim terrorists in Gaza, warned of the increasing probability of abandonment of Israel by the U.S. and other Western countries based on what he termed ‘malicious intelligence.’

“ ‘Remember that term,” advised this well-placed intelligence official, “you’ll be hearing it again.’ ”

Obama breaking with past US Administrative tradition —

“It has been a long standing policy to stand behind our Israeli allies, even if such policy merely amounts to paying lip service in public while exerting political pressure of restraint privately. Now, it appears evident that the United States, under Barack Hussein Obama as President and Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, is not even willing to do that. The pro-Palestinian, pro-HAMAS agenda of Barack Hussein Obama and his administration should be clear to anyone who is willing to take time away from watching their retirement funds evaporate into thin air, and equally unsettling.”

Operation Cast Lead. Necessary, but it came with a heavy price tag —

“I have every reason to believe, based on what I’ve seen at my level of [security] clearance especially over the last several years, that Israel will soon be completely on their own… or worse.” When asked what could be worse than losing the support of the United States, he stated: “when our administration provides more support to Arab countries [with] financial and military aid, undercutting Israel’s defense efforts all while pushing Israel to succumb to the pressure of unreasonable demands designed to end with their political annihilation as a nation.”

Massaged US Intelligence and MSM complicity in disseminating it —

“He continued: ‘When an intelligence work product that has been thoroughly and properly vetted is submitted to those in Washington, and I see a completely different and entirely inaccurate product intentionally submitted and aired in the media, only to be told ‘that is the way it must be,’ then I know it’s time for me to leave.’ ”

American apathy, refusal to face facts —

“It is obvious to me that most Americans don’t understand or don’t care what is actually happening in the Middle East relative to Israel. People don’t understand history, or have been subjected to revisionist history based on lies and more lies. Add to that a media that fails to provide an accurate assessment of what is taking place in Israel, in Gaza, and you end up with a very bad situation for Israel,” stated this source. He added that the disinformation coming and going to and from Washington is getting worse, as is the media bias against Israel.”

One example of how Muslims pull the wool over willing American eyes is their calculated use of standard Islamic “cease-fires”, which give the appearance of moving from a hard-line stance to moderation. Here is one example at The Huffington Post:

“On the two-state solution sought by the Americans, he said: “We are with a state on the 1967 borders, based on a long-term truce. This includes East Jerusalem, the dismantling of settlements and the right of return of the Palestinian refugees.” Asked what “long-term” meant, he said 10 years.

Sigh. The more things change the more they stay the same. This is the lawful maximum amount of time allowed within sharia (Islamic law) to remain at peace with an enemy. It is called a “Hudna” and is designed to buy time in order to strengthen the given Islamic regime, in this case, Hamas, after being weakened (Operation Cast Lead) in order to recover and re-arm for the continued struggle. “If Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with the Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.16). But Americans will buy Hamas propaganda if packaged correctly, because we do not have patience for long-term struggles. We have not had to endure a 100 Years War.

Americans surely do not exhibit the tenacity that the Jewish people have had to make their standard “MO” just to ensure mere survival, never mind anything resembling a decent and stable life, which we’ve managed to do as well. That’s not just little ol’ Jewish me, bragging. I have it from authoritative sources that we are the “most tenacious people in history” (A History of the Jewish People by Paul Johnson, page 3. Mr. Johnson is a British Christian. Yeah, I just started it. Apart from his gospel interpretation of Scriptures, which is to be expected, it’s good so far.)

Having bragged about some of our finer qualities, I must say, it is extremely disconcerting to see an Israeli Jew, the son of an Irgun fighter, promoting the Obama policies which if followed, will result in the dismantlement of the modern State of Israel and the death of many innocent, good Jews. In such a horrible scenario, Heaven forfend, make no mistake, Jews in America and around the world will also be running for their very lives.

I have been amazed to see so many former IDF military leaders turn dovish. It is perplexing. The details of these sorts need to be investigated.  We need to find out if they are really “heroes” or are just selling themselves as such. If dovish former IDF military leaders were indeed outstanding in their service to Israel, it would be worth our time to find out what went wrong.

It’s disturbing to know that there are American Jews, any American Jews, who voted the smooth talking Barak Obama and his double-speak, destructive Administration into power. But we need to keep in mind, as we read the news, that ugly, deadly games are being played, Jewish organizations are being co-opted, influential Jews are being strong-armed in an effort to silence them. Numbers, statistics, intelligence…it’s all being manipulated. We are being lied to, all of us. No, not everything is a lie, but enough to throw us off, to make everything doubtful. Remember, it’s only paranoia if no one is out to get you.

What we see is only the tip of a very nasty, sewage infested ice-berg.
