The three D’s of antisemitism:

Demonization

Delegitimization

Double Standards

It is wise to keep those in mind when you find yourself experiencing cognitive dissonance as you listen to antisemites  who claim to eschew antisemitism. Hat tip on these 3 flags from Shai Ben-Tekoa.

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

Federman Farm Life and Other Hevroni Adventures

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 3, 2009

BS”D

Noam and Elisheva Federman, both children of right wing activists, are brave patiots fighting for Jewish sovereignty in Eretz Israel.

Noam is the son of David Federman. David fought in Lehi, was arrested by the British during Mandate period, deported to Ethiopia, sharing a prison cell with future Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir.

All I can find on Elisheva is that she is the daughter of David Ramati, an American immigrant to Israel, who lives in Kiryat Arba, a lovely town in the vicinity of Hevron.

The Federmans have 9 children. They have found there way to the news for many years, continually challenging the appeasers within the Israeli government who insist that significant portions of Israel become “judenrein”. I doubt they are really anxious to be in the news, but simply want to live in peace on the land the Almighty has given to them and the Jewish people. I don’t write neutrally about these people. I believe in their cause, as it is mine as well.

Below are a few articles I found that are pertinent to the latest controversy; namely, the brutal, middle of the night destruction of the Federman farm. What is reported is that over 100 black uniformed policemen surrounded the Federman home, children sleeping, busted through their doors and windows, roughly grabbed and even reportedly beat them and their children, ages 1 to 17, the oldest being a girl. They proceeded to throw Noam to the ground, handcuff him, manhandle Elisheva, throwing them out of their home. They didn’t give them time to take any of their valuables, books, toys, …nothing. They then bulldozed the home and all that was in it. Elisheva reports that Bedouin and others trampled their holy books, Mishneh Torah and their Tanakhim, as if they were walking on the floor.

After the various article and post links, I have some videos where you can see what is left of the Federman home, listen to Noam, Elisheva and one of their children, twelve year old Oved Federman, as well as Nadia Matar. A court did rule that this “evacuation” was done in an unlawful manner.

Last but not least, you can watch a typical demonstration in Hevron against Israel.

Comment from”federman1″ video by Promethio1 —

“This is planned for every Torah observant Jewish home in the historical Jewish areas of Israel, except of course for those who facilitate these operations for narrow and superficial purposes.There are far more than enough people in Israel who strongly disagree with the policy of uprooting Jews. But they are not the kind of people who are prone to using violence to enforce their will.May Hashem bring Justice to Israel swiftly and soon.”

And now a word from our peace loving neighbors…

The bravest of the brave are willing to take on the Israeli government on the issue of Hevron. One must be willing to be lied about, marginalized and demonized by the main stream media, both in Israel and abroad.

Here is a brief excerpt on the Hevron massacre from Jewish Virtual Library:

“When Jews finally gained control of the city in 1967, a small number of massacre survivors again tried to reclaim their old houses. Then defense minister Moshe Dayan supposedly told the survivors that if they returned, they would be arrested, and that they should be patient while the government worked out a solution to get their houses back. Years later, settlers moved to parts of Hebron without the permission of the government, but for those massacre survivors still seeking their original homes, that solution never came.”

The Jews of Hevron were taken by surprise when their Arab neighbors were willing to hunt them down, ferretting out every corner of their homes. The largely unarmed (okay, they had one gun) men, women and children hid behind their furniture, under their beds, in cellars. Approximately nineteen courageous Arab families helped their Jewish neighbors. These brave families, if they haven’t already, should be recognized as among the “Righteous Among the Nations”, but this probably won’t happen, as it would earn them everlasting scorn among their Arab brethren.

Hevron is now known as a completely the premier “Jew hating” town within Eretz Israel. I once visited Hevron in order to pray at Machpelah. We had to cancel due to rioting by the Arabs.

I will never forget the eyes of hatred that bore into mine from a particular Arab man, as our bus was stalled in traffic. He brazenly walked up close to our bus  and glared into the window of the bus. He caught my eye and slowly scanned back and forth between me and my little baby. He looked like he would have torn us both limb from limb if he thought he could get away with it.

1300 liters of sulfuric acid confiscated at roadblock Condi Rice wants opened

Posted by avideditor on June 5, 2008

Just look at the actions of the “Palestinians.” They just want to want to kill Jews. Any concession to these jihadis is going to result in more innocent people dying. I found this at Israel Matzav

1300 liters of sulfuric acid confiscated at roadblock Condi wants opened

 

The IDF found 1300 liters of sulfuric acid in a truck stopped for inspection at yet another one of those terrible ‘roadblocks’ that infringes on the ‘freedom of movement’ of the ‘Palestinian people’ on Thursday. This time, the roadblock was in Kalkilya, less than one kilometer (0.6 miles) from the large Jewish town of Kfar Saba. Kalkilya and Kfar Saba face each other on opposite sides of the ‘green line.’

Sulfuric acid is used in – you guessed it – bomb making.

The World Bank (which has blamed Israel’s ‘roadblocks’ for the collapse of the ‘Palestinian economy’) was not available for comment.

Hat Tip: Arutz Sheva.

/Give the ‘Palestinians’ ‘freedom of movement’ so they won’t ‘suffer’ from ‘poverty’ any more.

‘Peaceful’ Hamas Friday sermon and Fatah comments

Posted by avideditor on April 13, 2008

UPDATE: FOR THOSE JIHADI READERS CHECK OUT THIS. ISRAEL SUFFERED GREATER LOSS AND MORE REFUGEES THEN THE “PALESTINIANS”

Israel should destroy Hamas ASAP. Fatah should also not be trusted. They have the same goals as Hamas. You can see a spokes man revealing them here. Or read the transcript

Following are excerpts from an interview with Abbas Zaki, Palestinian Authority representative in Lebanon, which aired on NBN TV on April 9, 2008:

Abbas Zaki: We believe wholeheartedly that the Right of Return is guaranteed by our will, by our weapons, and by our faith.

Interviewer: Do you still believe in weapons, not just in negotiations?

Abbas Zaki: The use of weapons alone will not bring results, and the use of politics without weapons will not bring results. We act on the basis of our extensive experience. We analyze our situation carefully. We know what climate leads to victory and what climate leads to suicide. We talk politics, but our principles are clear. It was our pioneering leader, Yasser Arafat, who persevered with this revolution, when empires collapsed. Our armed struggle has been going on for 43 years, and the political struggle, on all levels, has been going on for 50 years. We harvest U.N. resolutions, and we shame the world so that it doesn’t gang up on us, because the world is led by people who have given their brains a vacation – the American administration and the neocons.

[…]

Young Palestinian: As I recall, the invasion of 1982 and the destruction of South Lebanon was not just in response to missile attacks, but in response to operations as well. Israel does not use only the missiles as a pretext. It uses any activity of the resistance as a pretext.

Abbas Zaki: The important thing is that in any operation, Israel will pay a price. We don’t want cases in which you don’t kill even a chicken, but Israel kills 20 of you. I salute any operation that makes Israel pay a heavy price.

[…]

The P.L.O. is the sole legitimate representative [of the Palestinian people], and it has not changed its platform even one iota. In light of the weakness of the Arab nation and the lack of values, and in light of the American control over the world, the P.L.O. proceeds through phases, without changing its strategy. Let me tell you, when the ideology of Israel collapses, and we take, at least, Jerusalem, the Israeli ideology will collapse in its entirety, and we will begin to progress with our own ideology, Allah willing, and drive them out of all of Palestine.

Most Jews regard Judea and Samaria as liberated – not occupied – and Oslo as a mistake

Posted by avideditor on April 10, 2008

I found this reassuring article at Israel Matzav: I hope Israel changes its leadership before it is too late.

The Peace Index Project is conducted at the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research and the Evens Program in Mediation and Conflict Resolution of Tel Aviv University, headed by Prof. Ephraim Yaar and Prof. Tamar Herman. It has been issued monthly since the heyday of Oslo ‘peacemaking’ efforts. This month, they surveyed Jews separately and those those who run the ‘peace index’ had a bit of a shock.

While most of the Jews (68%) still support what’s called the ‘two-state solution,’ when you get beyond that basic question, it becomes clear that Israeli Jews have a very different idea than the ‘Palestinians’ of what a ‘two-state solution’ means:
About three-quarters do not believe the negotiations will lead to an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, and an identical proportion says that even if an agreement is signed it will not, from the Palestinians’ standpoint, end the historic conflict with Israel.

This pessimism is apparently what fosters the hard-line positions that most of the Jewish public now takes on central aspects of the conflict and the chances of resolving it. It turns out, for instance, that in retrospect only among Meretz, Labor, and Kadima does a majority say the decision to launch the peace process at the beginning of the 1990s was correct. In the public overall, the number of those who think so (40%) is lower than the percentage of those who believe it was a mistake to enter the peace process that enabled the Oslo accords (47%). We found a similar mindset among those who say that if a peace treaty entails difficult concessions, it’s preferable to remain in the existing situation (49%, with 43% preferring an agreement even if its price is difficult concessions).

We were surprised to discover that even though, over the years, the concept of “occupation” has become more common both in the political discourse and the media, [Translation: Even though the leftist media has done its best to brainwash the Israeli public. CiJ] today a majority of the Jewish public defines the West Bank as “liberated territory” (55%) and not as “occupied territory” (32%). This may explain the new popularity of the position (57%) that the Green Line should not be considered the future border between Israel and the Palestinians, and that a new borderline should be established so that most of the settlements will be on the Israeli side and large Israeli Arab communities would move to the Palestinian side (only 23% of the Jewish public currently favors the Green Line as the future border; only among Meretz voters does a majority take the opposite view).

Interestingly, even among those who see the West Bank as “liberated territory” there is a clear majority-albeit small compared to the majority among those who see it as “occupied territory”-of supporters of a two-state solution. Here too the pessimism about the chances of ending the historic conflict with the Palestinians is widespread among both groups, though, as expected, more so among those who view the West Bank as liberated.

Moreover, if a peace agreement is signed on the basis of the two-states-for-two-peoples formula, the majority (65%) would want the border between the two states to be a closed one, without free passage from state to state. [Under current circumstances, that would leave the ‘Palestinians’ without an economy and – depending on arrangements between Judea and Samaria on the one hand and Gaza on the other – without a port. CiJ] The desire for segregation of the two peoples also emerges in the broad opposition (75.5%) to the idea of a binational state as an alternative solution to the two-state formula.

Finally, a considerable majority (61%) does not believe in Prime Minister Olmert’s sincerity when he says he intends to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority by the end of this year. Indeed, only among Labor voters (not even among Kadima voters) does a majority credit the sincerity of his intentions.

The telephone interviews were conducted by the B. I. Cohen Institute of Tel Aviv University on March 31 and April 1, 2008, and included 588 interviewees who represent the adult Jewish and Arab population of Israel (including the territories and the kibbutzim). The sampling error for a sample of this size is 4.5%.

You can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
