Instead of returning to Netanyahu like a battered wife, we should replace him with an honest, principled leader who isn't afraid… (liberation of Eretz-Israel plan!)
On 50 years since the 6-Day War in which a poll was featured about the future of a united Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and the Golan Heights.
The poll found that a conclusive Jewish majority wants us to remain in the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria established in the past 50 years. A definitive majority of Israeli Jews and Arabs don’t believe that it’s possible or needed to reach an agreement with the Arabs of Judea and Samaria...
Netanyahu’s behaviour is strange. 21 years ago, when he was chosen as Prime Minister, he demanded that all building in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem get his approval...
Netanyahu is talented, intellectual, charismatic, and eloquent. With these qualities Netanyahu manages to fool everyone, including the innocent leaders of Yesha. Their meeting last week with him, their crawling into his arms reminds us of the return of a battered wife to her husband, when everyone knows that there was never a prime minister of Israel who abused the residents of Judea and Samaria like him...
There is an alternative to Netanyahu within the nationalist camp. Katz, Erdan, Levin, Elkin - could replace Netanyahu. Maybe they are not charismatic like he is, but they are more trustworthy, have experience, and are honest.
The nation of Israel deserves an honest, trustworthy, idealistic prime minister, who speaks the truth and is not afraid (of doing what is right for the future of Jewish people!)
FOOD for THOUGHT by Steven Shamrak
Hamas does not pay what it owes to Israel for supply of electricity and water! Therefore, Israel should stop supporting terrorists in Gaza. Gaza is not occupied by Israel. By stopping electricity and water supply Israel would not violate the 4th Geneva Convention. And, it would encourage enemy residents of Gaza leavet faster and expedite the end of occupation of Jewish land, without need for a military option!
Terror Attack in Jerusalem.
One attack at Damascus Gate outside Old City. 22 year old female security officer seriously injured. 2 policemen injured. 3 terrorists killed. Weapons used: Carl Gustav rifle and knives. The terrorists were not from Jerusalem but from El Bireh and Hebron in Judea & Samaria (West Bank). They were ages 18 and 19. They exploited the humanitarian freedom given to Arabs by Israel security to come to pray in Jerusalem during Ramadan. (When will government of Israel start at least considering the removal of the enemies from the Jewish land?)
The US proposal is: slowing building in Judea and Samaria, creating security arrangements in partnership with Jordan and the Gulf states, and normalizing Israel's relations with the Arab countries. The plan also requires both sides to work towards peace. (Frankly it is quite boring and the old game! Israel needs to implement its own game plan - remove enemy population from Eretz-Israel. This is the only way to end the international imposed stupidity!)
The Ministerial Legislative Committee approved a bill proposed withholding customs and taxes Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority in an amount equal to the salaries the PA pays terrorists and their families. Part of the Palestinian Authority’s budget, which is largely funded by American and European aid, is directed to salaries and benefits to terrorists in Israeli security prisons, as well as allowances to families whose loved ones were killed when carrying out acts of terrorists. These payments amount to more than $850 million annually. (Will Netanyahu find a lame excuse to stop it?)
The UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) accused Israel in a report Wednesday of using "force that has at times been deemed excessive" against the Palestinians, "which may have amounted to extrajudicial executions." (With UNHRC under attack from the US the ‘Ugly Nazi’ has shifted the responsibility for Israel bashing to ECOSOC.)
Egypt Makes Deal With Hamas: Trade Terror Fugitives for Electricity. Cairo handed Gaza-based Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar a list of security demands:
1. Extradition of 17 wanted terror fugitives
2. Protection of the border between Gaza and Sinai
3. Halt to smuggling of arms into Sinai, and
4. Security cooperation, which is to include reporting by Hamas to Cairo about all ‘elements’ passing through the tunnels into Gaza.
(Why Israel didn't think of it? This energy ‘crisis’ is created entirely by an internal rift between Hamas and PLO/Fatah, but Israel is blamed as usual!)
The UN Human Rights Council’s 35th Session discussed a Report on Violence against Women. When it came time for delegates to comment on the report, every single Arab participant in the forum stated that, in the end, when an Arab husband beats up his wife in Ramallah it's Israel's fault. (What about violence perpetrated routinely against women in all Arab/Muslim countries – is it also Israel's fault?)
Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria reacted angrily after it was revealed that the political echelon approved the construction of 14,000 housing units in the Arab city of Qalqiliya, allowing the city to expand from Area A into Area C. The number of housing units approved for the city was seven times the number of housing units approved for all Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. (The wimp, who only talks nicely, must leave and let Zionist-minded politicians take control of Likud!)
Iran fired a barrage of ground-to-ground mid-range missiles from Kermanshah and Kurdistan provinces in western Iran, at Islamic State terrorist bases in eastern Syria. Iran warned the missile strikes were just “a warning” to deter any further action by the terrorists, adding the Islamic State group and its supporters - in the region and anywhere else - “would be engulfed...”
The United Nations said it will not be "engaged in any way or form" in the process surrounding the independence referendum in Iraq's northern semi-autonomous Kurdish region planned for September. (The UN has been spending so much time and funds to secure creation of a state for the fake people, so-called Palestinians. But it does not care for the rights of almost 35 million Kurds, whose land is occupied by Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria!)
No less than 14,000 housing units has been approved by the Netanyahu government for the 50,000 Arab residents in Area C, which is under full Israeli control. The plan is to double the city of Qalqiliya, which in Area A.
Quote of the Week:
“When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong... The United States is looking carefully at this Council and our participation in it. We see some areas for significant strengthening." - Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, gave the UN Human Rights Council formal notice that the Trump administration is reviewing its participation in the forum.
Prime Minister of Israel Binyamin Netanyahu, September 11, 2016.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has sent a public message to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in light of the latter’s insistence on Israeli acceptance of preconditions prior to resuming diplomatic talks. Following is Mr. Netanyahu’s message (with my comments):
I am sure many of you have heard the claim that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) are an obstacle to peace. I’ve always been perplexed by this notion.
Because no one would seriously claim that the nearly two million Arabs living in Israel are an obstacle to peace. That’s because they aren’t on the contrary. (It is debatable! Maybe Israel needs to start considering seriously this option too – deportation of enemy population from Jewish land! If the world agrees, openly or silently, with Abbas, that Jews must leave Judea and Samaria, why shouldn’t it be forbidden to Israel? After Jews left Gaza, terror escalated.)
Israel’s diversity shows its openness and readiness for peace. Yet the Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews!
There’s a phrase for that: It’s called ethnic cleaning. And this demand is outrageous.
It’s even more outrageous that the world doesn’t find this outrageous. Some otherwise enlightened countries even promote this outrage. (There were no condemnation from the world leaders or the United Nation, ‘Ugly Nazi’ International funds are still flowing to the pockets of Israel’s enemies, whose clear intent is destruction of Israel and committing another Holocaust!)
Ask yourself this: Would you accept ethnic cleaning in your state - a territory without Jews, without Hispanics or without blacks (or Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists)?
Since when is bigotry a foundation for peace?
At this moment, Jewish schoolchildren in Judea and Samaria are playing in sandboxes with their friends. Does their presence make peace impossible? I don’t think so. (At the same time, Arab children are playing with suicide vests and AK-47. So who is the threat to peace?)
I think what makes peace impossible is intolerance of others. Societies that respect all people are the one that pursue peace. Societies that demand ethnic cleaning don’t pursue peace.
I envision a Middle East where young Arabs and young Jews learn together, work together, live together, side by side in peace. (It is wishful –thinking, has nothing to do with reality - Bibi is still delusional!)
Our region needs more tolerance, not less. (Arab and Muslim countries - Israel actually needs to reduce level of tolerance for the enemies!)
So the next time you hear someone say Jews can’t live somewhere, let alone in their ancestral homeland, take a moment to think of the implications. Ethnic cleaning for peace is absurd! (Why Did Obama not Condemn PA for its Jew-Free State Demand? The Obama administration responded by ignoring Netanyahu’s speech!)
