Well.  In response to a post I put up the other day, entitled The Aktions of George Soros; Holocaust Survivor, we had an auspicious visitor. I had no idea a coupla small blogs would attract the attention of such a visible man, or his SFM director of communications, Mr. Michael Vachon.

I made it clear in the original comments that the continuation of the discussion must be in the form of a post, both being simply too long for a comments section. Mr. Soros’ father Trivalder Schwartz, can be found at the following site: Preview of Masquerade by Tivadar (Schwartz) Soros.

“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.”

Meir: You Don’t Care About Jews Being Killed

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 17, 2009

BS”D

Reported: 13:04 PM – May/17/09

(IsraelNN.com) In an interview with the Times of Malta, Israeli Ambassador to Italy Gideon Meir said that Israel was fed up with getting war in exchange for one-sided concessions, and blamed Palestinian Authority terror with stalling peace efforts. “For 16 years we made concessions, giving up land for peace and peace did not come. The key word is negotiation. This means that the two parties talk and both make concessions. But what do we have until now? Israel gave up land and in return all it got was more war, more terror. We withdrew from Lebanon in 2000 and we got Iran on our borders through Hizbullah, which is its proxy.

PA Rep Says 2-State Solution Will Kill Israel

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 14, 2009

BS”D

I think they've made themselves clear. Now believe it.

I think they've made themselves clear.

The following article is by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com)

Palestinian Authority representative in Lebanon Abbas Zaki says the two-state solution is his preferred approach, as it will lead to Israel’s collapse.

Speaking with Lebanese ANB Television on May 7, Zaki said that any ceasefire, or hudna, deal with Israel is not desirable. Instead, the long-time PLO member said, “we must go towards the two-state solution, a solution that even [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmedinajad supports.”

“In my opinion,” Zaki explained, “with such a solution, Israel will collapse. Because if they get out of Jerusalem, what will be left of all their [the Jews’] talk about the Promised Land and the Chosen Nation? What will be with all the sacrifices they gave and then they are told to leave?”

The two-state solution, supported by the United States and most of the world, calls for a Palestinian Authority state in Judea and Samaria, leaving Israel barely 11 miles wide in some areas.

(IsraelNN.com)

The United Nations Security Council issued a statement Monday calling for the creation of a new Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza and the cessation of Jewish development in those same areas. Israel rejected the
The U.N. also specifically called on Israel to cease all further development of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
involvement of the Security Council in what it sees as a bilateral issue.

The declaration, affirmed by 15 member states, was presented by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Russia currently chairs the Council.

‘Urgent Efforts’ to Create a New Arab State
“The Council reiterates its call for renewed and urgent efforts by the parties and the international community to achieve a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East, based on the vision of a region where two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, will live side by side in peace, within secure and recognized borders,” the U.N. Security Council declared.

To that end, the Council encouraged the Quartet – the U.N., the U.S., Russia and the European Union – “to support the parties in their efforts to achieve a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”

The Council also called for a comprehensive Middle East peace agreement, including between Israel and Syria.

In her comments to the Council, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice added: “This is a moment that should not be lost and that is why the United States and others are redoubling our efforts to achieve a lasting two-state solution.”

A resident stranger, as referred to in the Torah, was one who was willing to abide by Torah law, living in peace among the Jewish people. As for those who would continue harassing the Jewish people within the land, refusing to abide by the Torah, they were indeed to be driven out. Many Arabs living in the disputed territories, and even within the current borders of modern Israel certainly qualify as enemies of the Jewish people, and state exactly that, proudly, repeatedly. These were the Arabs that R’ Kahane said “must go”. If one reads his books, one will find that he made a provision for non-Jews who swore an oath of loyalty to Israel, and were committed to living among the Jewish people in the Land, in peace and according to Jewish Law. These are known as “righteous gentiles” and are honored in the Torah.

There are Druzim, Armenians, Circasions, Christians of all stripes, and Arabs who live in Israel and in the disputed territories that qualify as “righteous gentiles”. Of course, those people would be able to stay. Only the bloodthirsty, the permanently belligerent people must go, and R’ Kahane made that clear in his writings. The MSM did their best to cover that part of R’ Kahane’s agenda. — Ellie Katz

Myopic American Jewish Culture

Posted by Glezele Vayne on February 22, 2009

BS”D

I am so sorry to report, American Jewish culture is in trouble, and some of it is being imported to Israel. Not much, thanks be, since it is mostly the faithful among us that are willing to risk it all to be, well…faithful and return home.

Around 80% of Jews in America (the non-orthodox component) consider their participation in Judaism to consist of proudly, even defiantly, eating lox & bagels on Sundays while their neighbors attend church, and watching Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year, while referring to it, quoting it and learning the dances depicted, or at least dutifully sending their kids to classes to learn those dances. And maybe even do a Fiddler on the Roof play, if they’re really ambitious.

In Fiddler on the Roof, Norman Jewison brought a touch of old Eastern Europe Jewish culture to us. Sholom Aleichem did so in his books, on which this movie is based. Not having actually lived through those times myself, I am unsure of the accuracy of this charming semi-tragic portrayal, but hey that’s showbiz. Really though, I enjoy Fiddler on the Roof and lox & bagels as much as the next Jew. Charming and delicious respectively. But, I don’t consider participation in these activities as equal to a Shabbos afternoon listening to a dvar Torah by a Talmid chocham.

And therein lies the problem. Most of American Jewry, while very proud of their heritage, know little to nothing about what it really means. They only know the stereotypes imposed on them by their enemies, and what popular culture tells them about Yiddishkeit. This then morphs into a Jewish community with little or no truly Jewish values, which thinks…that the values they do hold are indeed Jewish. No. They are non-Jewish values held by Jews. Misguided, unrealistic, painfully ignorant Jews. Then, these tragically disenfranchised Jews try and impose those non-Jewish values on the rest of us who’ve been taking our heritage very seriously all along.

More to the point, semi-Yiddishkeit movies and really yummy nosh are not the sum and substance of the Jewish worldview, nor will they assure our survival as a people.

I was inspired to kvetch about this sad state of affairs after some tag surfing. I ran across a post by Deb Reich at DesertPeace. In her post, where she is clearly longing for the messianic era, she has embedded the video below. Read the rest of this entry »

Israel is not a US Colony or the Fifty-First State

Posted by Glezele Vayne on January 24, 2009

BS”D

Gil Ronen of Arutz Sheva quoted National Union leader Ya’akov “Ketzale” Katz  as saying “(President Barak)  Obama needed to be reminded that Israel is not an American colony or the 51st state.”

Here!! Here!! I’d love to agree with Ketzale. Sadly, all I have to say is:  Read history and welcome to Rome. Not officially of course, only in reality.

IDF Criticized for Being Competent

Posted by Glezele Vayne on January 22, 2009

BS”D

I missed another memo.

Apparently, effectiveness in battle is prima facie evidence of war crimes. Using children as human shields and storing rockets under their beds is not. I’m going to go muse on this new information as I watch some more videos of pro-Hamas demonstrations in America. These peace loving folks were singing anti-war songs like “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”, and “In spirit and blood, we shall redeem Al Aksa!” … obvious references to the desired two state solution. Oh and they were also singing “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahood! Jaish-Muhammad saya’ud!” (Khaybar, Khaybar oh Jews, the army of Muhammad will return!), and “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas!”. Isn’t it cute how often they refer to us Jews in their songs? They just can’t seem to get over us.

I remember war protesters in the 60’s (now I’ve dated myself) singing “Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya” and sitting peacefully on college campuses demanding an end to the war in Vietnam too.

Something seems vaguely different about these protests. I just can’t quite get my hands around it. Give me time. I’ll figure it out. In the meantime, for your reading pleasure, I’ve posted an Arutz Sheva article on the outcome of the recent “Gaza war”. Enjoy.

IDF Backs Gaza Reports, Says 1,300 Killed in Cast Lead by Maayana Miskin (IsraelNN.com)

Some highlights for your enlightenment below:

“A report issued by Italian journalist Lorenzo Cremonesi earlier in the day charged Hamas with vastly overstating the number of deaths in Gaza.”

“IDF spokesmen said they believe that approximately 1,300 people were killed in the operation, as Hamas has claimed.”

“There is, however, a major difference between the casualties reported by the IDF and those reported by Hamas: the IDF believes that most of those killed were members of Hamas and at least 500 belonged to the group’s armed forces…”

“The IDF still believes that the majority of those killed were armed, adult members of Hamas with blood on their hands.”

“… the estimated number of civilians killed was much higher than the actual number because many Hamas terrorists who were actively participating in battle at the time of their deaths were wearing civilian clothes.”

“… Gaza civilians were afraid of Hamas, and said the group had used civilians as human shields against their will and had fired from United Nations buildings.”

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

Read Caroline Glick most recent piece on Condoleezza Rice.

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

“In her monthly trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to criticize Israel for its announced plan to build new housing for Jews in Jerusalem. Referring to the government’s plans in a recent tour of the city, U.S. Ambassador Richard Jones said that as far as the U.S. was concerned, the fact that there is a housing shortage for Jewish families in the city was no reason to build new housing.’Building homes for Jews in Jerusalem, the ambassador intimated, is a provocative act that will endanger prospects for peace with the Palestinians. Consequently, the ambassador suggested, Jews will just have to leave the city.‘Sometimes people do have to move to a different location,’ he explained. ‘They cannot always stay close to their families.’Also during her visit, Rice will call for Israel to ease up on its counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria in order to ratchet up the Egyptian-sponsored, U.S.-supported negotiations toward a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas. Moreover, Rice is expected to pressure the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to move ahead with destroying Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria that have been built since 2001.Rice will take these steps as she calls for Israel and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria to abide by their obligations to the 2003 ‘road map’ plan for the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Jerusalem. She will note that such actions are in accordance with the joint Israeli-Palestinian declaration announced at the conclusion of December’s Annapolis conference.All of Rice’s moves will come against the backdrop of intensified negotiations in Yemen between Fatah and Hamas toward the reestablishment of their unity government. That government collapsed last June following Hamas’s takeover of the Gaza Strip. It was the collapse of the unity government that enabled Rice to organize the Annapolis conference, which was based on the assumption that Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas would fight Hamas and refuse to reunite forces with the Iranian and Syrian-sponsored jihadist movement.Her statements will also come two weeks after it was first reported that Abbas has called on so-called Palestinian refugees to march on Israel’s borders with Lebanon, Gaza, Jordan and Syria on Israel’s 60th Independence Day; and for Americans, Canadians and Europeans of Palestinian descent to charter flights and passenger ships to arrive in Israel the same day. The stated purpose of’Abbas’s plan is to force Israel to accept millions of foreign-born, hostile Arabs into its territory in order to overwhelm Israel demographically and so destroy its Jewish character.Rice’s visit next week, then, will be a direct continuation of her last visit here on March 4. At that time, Rice forced the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to end IDF offensive operations against Hamas in Gaza. As the Israeli media have since reported, Hamas is exploiting the cease-fire to augment its control over all aspects of life in Gaza and to expand its arsenal and military capabilities against Israel.To cite just one example, Hamas has reportedly completed its takeover of 8 out of the 22 medical facilities in Gaza. Through actions such as this, it is rendering the civilian population completely dependent on its Islamist largesse to receive basic services.Rice’s visit comes ten days after Lt. General William Fraser’s trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Fraser was appointed by Rice to act as judge of Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the road map in accordance with the Annapolis declaration. Fraser’s visit was boycotted by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who absented himself from the meeting with Fraser and Fatah Prime Minister Salam Fayyad due to the overtly anti-Israel positions adopted by Fraser and his colleagues during Rice’s visit. Fraser reportedly attacked Barak and the IDF for scuttling his plans to expand Fatah military control over Judea and Samaria by insisting on fighting terrorists in the areas.Fraser, like Rice, attacks Israel while stubbornly ignoring clear evidence of Fatah involvement in terror and Abbas’s open radicalization in the lead-up to the March 29 Arab League summit in Damascus where Fatah and Hamas leaders are expected to announce their efforts to reinstate their unity government. Indeed, even when US officials acknowledge that Fatah is not fighting terror effectively, they assert that the remedy is to give Fatah more arms and control over more territory.Rice’s heavy-handed policy toward Israel amounts to a betrayal of Israel on two levels. First, as Rick Richman wrote last week on the American Thinker website, Rice’s current policy of demanding that Israel dismantle Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, freeze all building activities for Jews beyond the 1949 armistice lines including in Jerusalem and the major settlement blocs, and refrain from taking any major offensive actions against Palestinian terror groups is a complete betrayal of President Bush’s signed April 14, 2004 pledge to then-prime minister Ariel Sharon.Bush’s’letter, which came after Sharon laid out his plan to destroy all Israeli communities in Gaza and withdraw Israeli forces from the region and to similarly destroy Israel communities in northern Samaria, made clear that the U.S. views a Palestinian commitment to combat terror, end incitement and dismantle terror groups and cells as the first stage of any further peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Bush also explicitly stated that the U.S. did not think it reasonable to expect that Israel would remove itself to the 1949 armistice lines in any future peace.In advancing the Annapolis summit, Rice openly betrayed Bush’s written pledge to Sharon, which was followed by a Congressional resolution in June 2004 explicitly approving the letter’s contents. Rice has delighted in this betrayal by claiming that the Annapolis platform broke the ‘tight sequentiality’ dictated by the road map. That ‘tight seqentiality’ dictated that before Israel would negotiate a final peace with the Palestinians, the Palestinians would first cease to harbor, support and train terrorists, end their war against Israel and end their anti-Israel incitement activities.It should be noted that in betraying the word of her boss, Rice was amply assisted by the feckless Olmert-Livni-Barak government. In an effort to divert public attention from the government’s incompetent leadership during the Second Lebanon War, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his colleagues sought to shore up their support base among Israel’s leftist elites by renewing negotiations with Fatah.Naively, Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Barak assumed that their willingness to engage Rice’s obsessive interest in advancing negotiations would satisfy her yearning to be viewed as a peacemaker. They may have been under the impression that for Rice the negotiations are as much of a public relations stunt as they are for them. Certainly they must have expected that she would exhibit an understanding of Israel’s security predicament, surrounded as it is by Iranian proxies in Gaza, Lebanon and Syria and a radicalized Palestinian population in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.Yet this was not in the cards. Rather than acknowledge reality, Rice has pushed on with her policies to the point where not only Bush’s own commitments to Israel fail to constitute a bar against her actions, human decency and basic logic have been discarded.In her race to establish a Palestinian state, Rice has not only failed to recognize the threat posed to Israeli security — and indeed to global security — by the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and the terror and jihad-laced Fatah movement. She has also embraced the wholly false and morally outrageous claim that the construction (or existence) of Jewish communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines is as much a threat to peace as Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis and anti-Israel incitement at all levels of Palestinian society, both in Hamas and Fatah dominated areas.In an attempt to preempt Rice’s expected animosity in her upcoming visit, Barak announced he would scale back IDF counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria by taking down a roadblock and easing the travel of Palestinian businessmen and senior officials. The fact that such moves imperil Israeli security was made clear on March 18. That day, senior Fatah official and former interim PA president Rauhi Fattouh was stopped at the Allenby Bridge crossing point from Jordan as he attempted to exploit his travel privileges to import contraband into the PA. Israeli security forces seized 3,000 cellular telephones hidden in his vehicle.Israeli officials’ continued attempts to appease Rice’are not only counterproductive because of the immediate security breaches caused by such appeasement. By showing that they will bow to Rice’s pressure, which is exerted in contempt of signed U.S. commitments to Israel, the Olmert-Livni-Barak government signals both to the next U.S. administration and to the Palestinians that they have no reason to abide by their word to the Jewish state.Originally published in The Jewish Press.“(Via Caroline Glick.)</

US ambassador: Jews will just have to leave Jerusalem

Posted by avideditor on March 20, 2008

Anyone that believes in liberty over tyranny needs to appeal to the Bush administration to remove the current US ambassador. He is trying to take away the liberty of Jews and replace it with the tyranny of the Islamo-fascist terrorist. Jews have been living in Jerusalem for thousands of year. There already is a Palestinian state it is called Jordan. The drive of the Jihadis will not stop at Jerusalem or G-d forbid all of Israel, they want to control the world. If you do not stand up to them now. Your children will be forced to wear burkas. It is time Israel turns around and goes on its own road before it is to late. Road MapUS ambassador: Jews will just have to leave Jerusalem:

http://www.israeltoday.co.il/default.aspx?tabid=178&nid=15485US Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones suggested during a tour of overcrowded Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem on Monday that many Jews will just have to move out of the capital rather than expand into parts of the city claimed by the Palestinians.Jones told said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post that Washington is growing increasingly displeased with Jewish housing projects on the eastern side of Jerusalem, which are certain to hinder efforts to conclude a peace deal along the lines of US President George W. Bush’s vision for the region The American envoy said he is well aware of the lack of Jewish housing in Jerusalem, but in a remark betraying a lack of understanding regarding Jewish historical and spiritual connection to the city Jones concluded that ‘sometimes people do have to move to a different location. They cannot always stay close to their families.’ He insisted that more important than the Jews’ restoration to their biblical capital and heartland is Israel’s implementation of commitments made as part of the US-driven Road Map peace process, even if unreciprocated by the Palestinians.Jones ended the interview by all but justifying the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing failure to meet its primary obligations to curb anti-Israel violence and incitement by stating that ‘it is not easy for either side to move ahead when they see the provocative behavior of the other side.'”
