Bibi has no one to Blame but Himself

by Dr. Moshe Dann

For more than three years PM Netanyahu has been able to slip back and forth between the Right and Left. He recognised the legitimacy of a Palestinian state (albeit “demilitarised”), agreed to a 10-month building freeze, allowed DM Ehud Barak to withhold building permits and destroy Jewish homes, and refused to accept an official report on the legal status of Judea and Samaria which he commissioned… With political rivals gaining on him, primarily over the issue of ‘settlements’, PM Netanyahu will be forced to clarify where he stands…

His advantage is that the Right does not want to topple him; they want him to implement policies that support the settlement movement. To his disadvantage, he does not want to be seen as leading a Right-wing government. The Left would like to defeat him, but have neither the votes nor a credible candidate.

Naftali Bennett, head of the Bayit Yehudi party, has challenged conventional Israeli politics by offering a clear agenda that has wide appeal and confronts the issues which PM Netanyahu has until now successfully avoided. Bennett’s challenge is not only to PM Netanyahu, but to every other candidate as well, because of his shifting the campaign from personalities to issues.

Bennett’s threat to the political system is that he says what he believes, he has a plan and he can be trusted. For Israeli voters disappointed by candidates they elected, frustrated by broken promises and cynical politicians, Bennett has changed the rules of the game.

For Bennett, it’s not about power, it’s about integrity. This has stirred a revolution in Israeli politics that voters understand and politicians would do well to heed.

PS: Likud’s chief asset, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, may also be its chief liability. His silence and ambiguity, his failure to preempt a nuclear-armed Iran and his alignment with Barak Obama on Middle East affairs affecting Israel’s vital security are hurting his party.

Netanyahu Can’t be Trusted

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stopped progress on plans to build in the E1 area of Maaleh Adumim. Facing international criticism after the government approved new construction in the area, Netanyahu is reportedly delaying sending it onward to a planning committee. The move proves he was never serious about the plan. MK Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi - Tekuma) accused: “Stopping the publication of the building plans for E-1 proves that his talk about settlement is an illusion (political deception).”

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Israeli voters are disillusioned with 20 years of a useless and self- destructive peace process, imposed on Israel by a self-hating and corrupt political Left. At the same time they no longer trust, after so many broken promises, the empty rhetoric of Netanyahu, who forsake the Likud party charter. Let us hope that the new political wind will reestablish national pride and set a new/original Zionist agenda!

No International Pressure on Colonial Britain to Negotiate

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has released a public letter urging the United Kingdom to relinquish its control over the disputed Falkland Islands. She accused Britain of taking part in an act of "blatant colonialism" in claiming the archipelago and called on UK Prime Minister David Cameron to honour UN resolutions, 16 December 1965, which stipulated that both sides should sit at the negotiating table to resolve the sovereignty of the Falklands (Malvinas)(It seems that any sovereign country can ignore UN resolutions when it suits them! Why is Israel the only country which ‘must’ negotiate surrender of its lands - Judea, Samaria and Gaza, to its enemy? Any self-respecting country would not!)

US-made Missiles Destined for Gaza

Egyptian security forces in the Sinai Peninsula intercepted a shipment of American-made anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles destined for the Gaza Strip. Late last month an attempt was made to smuggle 17 French-made TDI model rockets into the Gaza. (Hamas fakes the hardship of ‘poor Palestinians’ in Gaza in order to get more international aid to buy weapons!)

Fake Right-Wingers or Traitors

Avigdor Lieberman, former Foreign Minister, declared on Sunday that he believes in the “two state solution”. Israel has no imperialistic aspirations, Lieberman said. The government is ready to agree to a new Arab state, “Palestine”, when conditions are right and there is a partner for peace. In his Bar Ilan speech, Netanyahu called for “a demilitarized Palestinian state, side by side with the Jewish state.” (They forgot to mention that over 80% of Jewish land is already occupied by Arabs, who have only one idea in mind - destroying Israel and killing Jews!)

PA’s Fake Refugee Policy - Refused to Take Refugees

The PA governments in Gaza (Hamas) and the so-called "West Bank" (Mahmoud Abbas) have refused to take so-called Palestinian refugees from war-ridden Syria after the UN Works and Relief Agency (UNWRA), which was created to handle the issue of Palestinian Arab refugees, asked the PA governments to allow their brothers from Syria to enter. Gaza-based Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh refused to take the refugees on the grounds that doing so would set a dangerous precedent for more Palestinian refugees to come to the Gaza Strip. He declared that these refugees should return to Israel and not to the Gaza Strip. (A two-states solution will not end conflict. The enemy will insist on the ‘return’ of bogus refugees to Israel later!)

Obama’s Direction is Obvious

Obama has nominated Chuck Hagelto to succeed retiring Defence Secretary, Leon Panetta. Hagel’s confirmation faces a fight for endorsement in Congress over his views on Israel and Iran. Critics focus on his calls for direct negotiations with the Palestinian extremist Hamas, his votes against some Iran sanctions and opposition to military option against a nuclear Iran. Hagel also once said that the Jewish lobby was “intimidating”. (Israel is, as always under most US administrations, on her own - it is time to fully realise it and pursue our own national aspirations!)

Islamic Enemy Supported by Obama

Long before he was elected as Egypt's president, Mohammed Morsi rejected negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and referred to Jews as "apes and pigs" and called for a “military resistance within the land of Palestine against those criminal Zionists”. As a member of Hamas's parent movement the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010, comments he made were posted to the internet that called to boycott products made in the United States because of its support for Israel.

Ego and Self-Interest Perivale in Israel Left Politics

Three Israeli centre-left parties have failed in an initial attempt to form a united bloc that might have cut into Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's lead in polls before the January 22 election.

The Vatican is still Profoundly Anti-Semitic

The Vatican tried to reaffirm its (pretend) commitment to dialogue with the Jewish people after Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), said "the enemies of the Church: the Jews, the Masons, the modernists” in a video in late December, which is currently circulating on YouTube. (Being a ‘nice’ and politically correct person, he did not mention the rise of Islam!)

Renaming the PA is Violation of the Peace Agreement!

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has asked his West Bank-based government to prepare for replacing the words "Palestinian Authority" with "State of Palestine". Mark Regev, an Israeli government spokesman, dismissed the name change as insignificant. (When will deliberately ‘ignorant’ Israeli politicians understand that where Jews are concerned, everything is significant? Israel must stop any negotiation with terrorists, who are representing the fake nation!)

Quote(s) of the Week:

“Most (intelligent) American legislators and policy makers understand that the strategic cooperation between Israel and the US does not hinge on the Palestinian issue or on the settlement issue, not even on the overall conflict between Israel and the Arab nations. Rather, it is based on mutual and common interests in the Middle East and the world over, such as Iran’s nuclear threat, counter- terrorism, missile defence, intelligence-sharing, battle tactics, defense and commercial industrial research, where Israel has a competitive edge over any other country in the world.” - Yair Shamir, Deputy Head, Yisrael Beytenu.

Egypt Oppose Peace.

Current Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, whose government received support from the United States and most of the international ‘prostitutes’, asserted in September 2010:

  • Israeli-Palestinian negotiations are "a waste of time and opportunities" as Arabs and Muslims get nothing out of engagement with "the descendants of apes and pigs."
  • Morsi denounced the Palestinian Authority as a creation of "the Zionist and American enemies for the sole purpose of opposing the will of the Palestinian people." Therefore, he stressed, "No reasonable person can expect any progress on this track."
  • "Either (you accept) the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war," Morsi said, "This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know - these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs."
  • Morsi called on Arabs and Muslims worldwide to "employ all forms of resistance against...those criminal Zionists, who attack Palestine and the Palestinians."
  • Morsi affirmed that "The Zionists have no right to the land of Palestine... What they took before 1947-8 constitutes plundering, and what they are doing now is a continuation of this plundering. By no means do we recognise their Green Line. The land of Palestine belongs to the Palestinians, not to the Zionists."

Note: Just imagine what amount of noise and international condemnation would be generated if similar ideas about Arabs and Muslims were expressed by Netanyahu! Anti-Israel bigots can say and do anything against Israel and it is ignored and quietly accepted by anti-Semitic idiots!
