Israeli top political leaders and military commanders were stunned and shocked when they found out that US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to support the return of the Golan to Syria. The two presidents gave their top diplomats, Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the green light to include such a clause in a proposal being drafted at the Geneva conference on ending the Syrian civil war.
New International Assault on Israel
As usual, international anti-Semites found a new way to attack and discredit the rights of the Jewish state to the Jewish ancestral land. This 'innovative' bigotry is coming, predictably, from the Western countries. They do not care about recent illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia and have long forgotten about the occupation of Tibet by China.
The United States signaled its opposition to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's recent declaration that the Golan Heights will forever remain a part of Israel, stressing on Monday that Washington did not consider the Golan a part of Israel. Spokesman Says US Committed to Returning Golan Heights to Syrians — No matter which Syrians.
The European Union's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini reiterated that the EU does not recognize Israel's claim to the Golan Heights. "This is a shared position reaffirmed by (by all anti-Semites of) the European Union and its member states," she added.
Anti-Semites Unite in UNESCO The executive board of UNESCO denied Israel’s claim to the Temple Mount and Western Wall. France, Spain, Sweden, Russia and Slovenia were among the non-Arab nations who supported the resolution. The resolution accused Israel of planting “fake Jewish graves” in eastern Jerusalem. This claim is especially enraging, since the old Jewish cemetery on Mount Olives was desecrated by the Jordanians before 1967.
(Will Russia return Crimea Peninsula to Ukraine; it has just recently robbed of in violation of international law? The US must reconcile with Mexico and return southeast states, including Texas and California! Only by decisively reclaiming of all Jewish land and removal of the enemy population from Eretz-Israel Will Israel be able to put an end to this international anti-Semitic hypocrisy!)
The European Union said it was "deeply concerned" by Israel's construction of a new part of the security fence between it and Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled territories. (This ‘concern’ is coming while the EU is building fences all over the Europe to stop the Muslim migrant invasion!)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
How to spot an anti-Semite? - They usually ask “Why are there so many rich Jews?” They never ask “Why are over 22% recipients of Nobel Prize Jews?” (Note: there are 14 million Jews, less than 0.2% of the world population) So, why are Jews so disproportionably successful in business, science, agriculture, military, medicine, computer technology and communication, and other vocations? And this is in spite of chronic discriminatory treatment by most countries and international organizations!
Gloom of War Again - Remove its Source from Jewish Land
1. The IDF detected a deep Hamas cross-border tunnel in recent days, stretching from the southern Gaza Strip into Israel. The tunnel is 30 meters deep, and was likely dug after the 2014 Operation Protective Edge. The types of terrorist tunnels the IDF uncovered and destroyed leading from Gaza into Israel do not exist in Judea and Samaria because Israel is present there and can thwart their construction in real time.
2. A bus exploded last week in Jerusalem, wounding 21, in what police called a "terror attack." The blast then ripped through a second bus next to it, causing both buses to catch on fire. Hamas claimed that one of its affiliates, 19-year-old Abdel Hamid Abu Srour. was responsible for detonating a bomb that exploded on an Israeli public bus.
3. Major General Yair Golan says the Lebanese armed group has over 100,000 rockets and missiles in its arsenal.
(To defeat enemy Israel must ACT freely! Stop being apologetic for defending the country from the PA terror, as well as restoring Jewish rights to the land! By removing enemies, fake Palestinians, from Jewish land Israel will stop all terror attacks!)
The US Supreme Court has ruled that almost $2bn in frozen Iranian assets must be turned over to American families of people killed in the 1983 bombing of a US Marine Corps barracks in Beirut and other attacks blamed on Iran. (Taxes Israel collects on behalf of the PA must be used to pay compensation to Jewish victims of Arab terror and debt the PA owes to Israel for electricity and water supply!)
Jordan’s prime minister said his government has decided to call off a plan to install surveillance cameras at the Temple Mount. The decision came just days before the Jewish holiday of Passover - a time of increased violet activity at the site. In a deal brokered by US Secretary of State John Kerry, Jordan offered to install the cameras last fall. (Most political deals with Israel are not honoured by Arabs!)
Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Jewish candidate, spoke the language of the secular left on Israel said Israel has the right to defend itself but has responded “disproportionately” to Palestinian attacks, called for the United States to take a more “even-handed role” (which means that the UN have to be even more anti-Israel), while Hillary Clinton gave a full-throated defense of America’s longstanding foreign policy toward the Jewish state. Clinton stressed that she would push for the two-state solution if she is elected president.
A Jewish minor who was picked up by Shabak for interrogations a few days ago, without seeing an attorney or his family, was rushed to hospital. His family has issued a statement saying, “Now the suspicion that he was being tortured has become a certainty..."
The body of axe-wielding Arab terrorist Ibrahim Baradiyeh, attacked an IDF soldier in Judea, has somehow been returned to his family, despite a direct order from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prohibiting the return of any more terrorist bodies to their families.
Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. (Why would Saudis be afraid that the truth will be revealed? It is already common knowledge that 15 out of 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals, who received financing from Saudis!)
Time to Break into the Temp Mount!
1. Deputy Leader of the outlawed Islamic Movement in Israel Sheikh Kamal Khatib repeatedly accused the Israeli government of trying to take over the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount (This is a common incitement claim used to fuel Arab terror against Jews.)
2. The Jordanian government warned that there would be “dangerous consequences” should Israel continue to allow Jews to ascend to the Temple Mount, saying that it "violation of international laws and conventions.” (What law is it? Jews are not allowed to pray at the holiest site in Judaism.)
3. No Freedom of Religion for Jews - An American Jewish man was arrested on the Temple Mount on Sunday morning after it was noticed that he was quietly murmuring a prayer. A second Jew was warned by the Israeli police. Temple Mount security personnel and border policemen removed 13 Jewish visitors from Jerusalem’s holy site for praying at Judaism’s holiest site. (Prime Minister Netanyahu can relax and, as always, do nothing; his ugly status quo has been robustly upheld.)
Quote of the Week:
“That's the real evil tragedy of the 21st century. When regimes like those of Iran are supported and democracies like Israel are threatened, as well as being bullied, denigrated and condemned. When dangerously inept operatives have taken over the government of a nation such as USA and stubbornly implement policies that threaten all.” - Nicholas Stephens, a FaceBook posting.
The US Conflict – People vs the White House!
An overwhelming majority of the US House of Representatives signed a letter urging President Barack Obama to reject any unilateral action by the UN Security Council regarding Israel. The letter undersigned by 394 House Republicans and Democrats - more than 90 percent of the 435 representatives - was sent to Obama, amid reports that the PA might revive a draft resolution against Israel’s policies in Judea and Samaria, similar to the one vetoed in 2011 at the Security Council by the United States.
Residents of Iraq, Yemen and so-called Palestinians overwhelmingly believe United States is their enemy. Nearly half see Iran as ally. In the PA, a paltry 16% said they viewed the US as a friend, compared to a whopping 81% said the US was an enemy. Among the PA, 43% are most likely to view Iran as an ally. (Anti-Semitism/anti-Israel tendency is deeply ingrained in the American elite psyche! At the same time, ordinary American do not really protest it, in spite of ‘nice’ pro-Israel opinion polls.)
Republican presidential candidate says the United States should not interfere in the Israeli-PA conflict unless asked. Kasich, who served on the House Armed Services committee during his 18 years in Congress, also allowed that the “US could learn a lot” from Israel in terms of security, calling Israel’s intelligence community “second to none.” (Before the election most presidential candidates have promised to follow the US congress resolution, which was adopted a long time ago, and move the US embassy to Israel from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. After elections the same anti-Israel hypocrisy and bigotry prevails!)
