Empty Rhetoric of Deceitful Candidates.
by Steven Shamrak
White House candidates proclaimed their ties to Israel and vowed to stand by the Jewish state as the key US ally celebrated its 60th anniversary.
Obama: "What I love about Israel is it is such a robust democracy and... So it is critical that we send a message around the world, we will stand with Israel, we want them around not just for 60 years..."
Hillary Clinton: "In every generation, Israel faces serious challenges to its security and threats to its existence… united by shared values and strong bonds of friendship... and strengthen these bonds, so that the State of Israel will continue to grow, from generation to generation, in security and peace."
McCain: "Let no one doubt that, while the challenges will continue, Israel will survive and it will flourish. There will always be an Israel, and there will always be a vital bond between our two peoples."
None of the White House hopefuls was strong on specifics and willing to state on record: that Jews have the right to live in peace on their ancestral land – Eretz-Israel; that 60 years of Arab aggression against the state of Israel must be stopped now; that the fake peace process does not work and extends the suffering of Jews from Arab terror.
In short, each one of them will continue to apply pressure on Israel to sacrifice Jewish land to create another, 23rd, Arab state - the terror-infested state of a fabricated nation, whose sole purpose will be the destruction of Israel!
Just empty words! Just survival at any cost is not an issue any more; the right to live in peace on Jewish land is. According the 1922 resolution of the League of Nations, the Palestinian mandate was created to establish a Jewish state - Eretz-Israel. Just because Jews were weak before and desperate after WW2 and did not have oil to offer to the Western ‘masters’ does not make the systematic robbery that has been committed against Jews since 1922 right (the illegal creation of Jordan – 77% of the Palestinian mandate, the shameful UN partition plan of 1947, the current demands for the creation of another Arab state on Jewish land)!
Anything less than a clear endorsement that Jews have the right to live in peace in their homeland, the land of their ancestors, is just empty words and unadulterated hypocrisy! At the moment there are three runners for the position of the President of the United States; not one of them had integrity to admit the mistakes of the past and speak up with clarity about the rights of Jews and the state of Israel. It means that all of them will conduct the same policy of stupidity and duplicity, facilitating the rise of terror and the prolongation of injustice against Jews in Israel!
Get Lost Condi! US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, appearing increasingly desperate to see an Israeli-Palestinian Arab agreement signed before her president leaves office at the end of the year, reportedly used less than diplomatic language. Both sides she said "need to draw a map [showing their agreed-upon borders of Israel and "Palestine"] and get it done." After meeting with a newly-scandal-plagued Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and ineffectual PLO terror chief Mahmoud Abbas, Rice was forced to leave empty-handed, unable to secure the place in history for her ‘master’. (Israel does not need to agree on ceding more Jewish land to Arabs. At the same time, ‘Palestinians’ want it all!)
Peace Process? Over the weekend, terrorists in Gaza fired 22 Kassams and five mortar shells at Israel. On Sunday afternoon a rocket almost hit a busload of students of Sapir College in Sderot. (Stupidity must end now!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Isn’t it amazing that in a modern democracy even a former drunk, a pea-brained person, can become a president, as long as he is a well-connected member of “Skull and Bones” fraternity! And if his international policy has failed (like: ignoring the rise of global Islamic terrorism and the ideology of Wahabee Islam, the official religion of Saudi Arabia; in spite of billions of dollars spent on National security, missing the September 11 attack; the failed war in Iraq, which is mainly about a personal vendetta and enrichment, demonstrating state power and definitely oil), it can always be hidden by beefing up and shifting the attention of voters to the fake Middle-East peace process and blaming Israel for almost everything!
Arabs in Israel are the Fifth Column in Waiting. Having just completed an anti-Israel rally near the town of Tzipori, Israel, hundreds of Arabs clashed violently with a group of Jews celebrating Independence Day, injuring five police officers. Violence started when Jews raised the Israeli flag at an Independence Day picnic. (There is no difference between Israeli Arabs and so-called PA Palestinians. They do not hide their hatred toward Israel and their intentions and plans for Jews! Why must only Jews be politically correct?)
Bleak Outlook. Israeli teenagers don't believe another Holocaust is likely - but 82% said they do believe there is an existential threat to the State of Israel. (Only 20 years ago Israeli born Jews proudly called themselves “Sabra” - sweet inside but prickly outside. They could not understand why Jews had allowed the Holocaust in Europe. Now the remaining Holocaust survivors can’t understand how Israel allows the killing of Jews in the Jewish state!)
Quote of the Week:
"Olmert is stuck up to his neck in investigations. We cannot have a prime minister who is serially investigated by police. He is plainly corrupt even without [the public] waiting for a conviction. In the entire world there was never yet a precedent of a prime minister against whom so many investigations were held," - Labor MK Shelly Yacimovich – Even Labor party members are losing their ‘cool’!
‘Wishful-Thinking’ Diplomacy of Hypocrisy. In a statement that seemingly runs contrary to reports from Turkey that a Syrian-Israeli breakthrough is imminent, Syria's President Bashar Assad has told that he has rejected Israel's demands regarding a peace deal that Syria would cut its ties with Iran and the terror organizations. (One can’t change the nature of the ‘beast’!)
UN Gaza Boys' School Headmaster was a Bomb-Rocket. A terrorist killed in an IAF air strike last week, Awad al-Qiq, actually lived a double life: By day, he was a respected headmaster and science teacher at a United Nations school, but during the night, he built rockets for Islamic Jihad.
PA 'Policemen' Entered Jenin. Some 600 armed Arabs took up positions in the Jenin area on Saturday as ‘policemen’ for the PA, the result of a recent ‘gesture’ by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Two IDF soldiers, Ahikam Amichai and David Rubin, were killed in December while hiking in the Hevron Hills. In both cases the shooters were later discovered to be PA ‘policemen’.
UN: Gaza is Dumping Sewage. Gaza's water authority has dumped 60 million litres of partially treated and untreated sewage into the Mediterranean Sea since January. The sewage discharge is contaminating Gaza seawater and posing health risks. (Sewage dumping is a common practice of the incapable PA government, but, as usual, the UN report authors blame Israel.)
Hypocrisy of the ‘Loaded’ Headlines:
“Russia to Israel: Did You Supply Georgia with UAVs?” - Israel could ask Russia: “Do You Supply Arabs with Katusha rockets and Kalashnikov machine guns? Why do you give help to build a nuclear reactor to oil rich Iran? What is the Russian army doing in Georgia?” Reconnaissance UAVs do not kill!
Inaction of ‘Ugly Nothing’. The UNIFIL troops were on patrol on March 31st, and pulled over the truck. When they approached the vehicle, carrying arms and ammunition for Hizbullah, terrorists exited and threatened them. The UNIFIL troops returned to their cars and went back to their base. (As in Sudan, Bosnia and Rwanda, the UN troops do nothing but facilitate genocide and the growth of terror by not letting Israel deal with her enemies!)
Where is International Outrage? 1. A double suicide bombing has struck a wedding convoy northeast of Baghdad, killing 35 people and wounding 76 others. 2. The fighting that erupted in Baghdad's Sadr City last month has killed 925 people and wounded 2,605. (Only Israel is internationally bashed and criticised. The world has no shame or sense where Jews are concerned!)
Iran is a Threat - We Must Trust Only Ourselves.
Maj. Gen. Eliezer Shkedy tells CBCNews 60 Minutes that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s threats against Israel must be taken extremely seriously. The general said: “I think it is a very serious threat to the state of Israel, but more than this, to the whole world. They are talking about destroying and wiping us from the earth.”
Gen. Shkedy likened ignoring Ahmadinejad today to the atmosphere that enabled the Holocaust yesterday. “In those days, people didn’t believe Hitler was serious about what he said. I suggest we do not repeat this way of thinking and… prepare ourselves for everything.” “We should remember. We cannot forget. We should trust only ourselves.”
