Eternal Jewish Patriotism.
Irrespective of the severe leadership crisis, which has plagued Israel since the departure of Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the People of the Jewish State have displayed systematic resilience and optimism, in defiance of Palestinian terrorism, political uncertainly and occasional economic downturns.
According to the 2008 Survey of Patriotism among Israeli Jews (so-called Israeli Palestinians are different story), published by the Institute for Policy and Strategy at the Herzliya Inter-disciplinary Center:
1. 92% are proud to be Jewish (70% - very much, 22% - substantially).
2. 90% consider themselves patriotic (36% - very, 32% - substantially, 22% - somewhat).
3. For Israeli Jews patriotism is: Jewish legacy (93%), Love of the Homeland (92%), Hebrew language (89%), Jerusalem (88%), Jewish Ingathering (82%), Zionism (81%), etc.
4. 85% oppose the repartitioning of Jerusalem in return for peace.
5. 92% would actively engage in a military battle for the country (69% - absolutely, 23% - probably).
Selling off Israel for a Temporary Political Gain. The U.S. President George W. Bush offered Syrian President Bashar Assad a secret deal to pull Israel out of the Golan Heights (Jewish land) in exchange for Damascus breaking off ties with Tehran.
Food for Thought: Two-thirds of the Gaza strip is on Egypt's side of the border and 60% of the population of Jordan are so-called Palestinians. Why is Israel only pressured to sacrifice Jewish land in order to create another Muslim terror state, populated by fake nation? - Steven Shamrak
We Must Let Them Go. 40 percent of Gaza’s residents would leave Gaza if they were only given the opportunity to do so, according to an Arab poll. 62 percent said they have not enjoyed freedom of speech in the past year. (So-called Palestinians are the only ‘refugees’ in the world who are not allowed to resettle and start new life, in order to keep Arab-Israel conflict inflamed. The UN and international hypocrisies are quite happy to pay for this discriminatory practice, keeping generations of ‘Palestinians’ as political hostages, as long as there is a chance to destroy Israel!)
Offence is the Best Defence. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem told London-based newspaper Asharq al-Awasat, that Israel is uninterested in attaining real peace. (During the entire Arab-Israel conflict, on which issue - Jerusalem, Golan's, refugees, Judea and Samaria, access to Jewish holy places – have the enemies of Israel made any compromise? And I am not talking about 'getting everything for nothing', like the Camp David agreement! So, who is not ready for peace?)
Online Jihad Training. Hamas has initiated an online course in explosives, military weapons and tactics for would-be jihad fighters. The course is called "Get Ready" and is designed to prepare the population for war with Israel. Students also learn about such things as the manufacture and detonation of explosives. (I wonder how many students are in Europe and the US?)
Blame Jews for Everything. Anti-Semites had a field day, blaming Israel's Mossad intelligence agency for the traffic accident in which Austria's Nazi sympathizer leader Joerg Haider was killed. (Hate is blind! The fact that he was driving at breakneck speed after visiting a nightclub has nothing to do with the accident?)
'Poor Palestinians'. The campaign fund for U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama was forced to return $33,000 to two Arab brothers in Gaza. They had bulk-ordered Obama campaign T-shirts. The Republican Party had requested that the Federal Election Commission investigate whether thousands of small donations made to Obama's campaign came from overseas, which is illegal.
Quote of the Week: "Stable and independent Lebanon will frustrate all the plots of the Zionist regime." - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - Please, frustrate the "Zionist regime" and its plots; make Lebanon “stable and independent”!
Re-Naming Parties Won't Help. MK Avigdor Lieberman, head of the Yisrael Beiteinu faction, suggested that the Labour, Shas and Kadima parties change their names: Shas should be renamed Mas ("tax" in Hebrew). Avoda ("Labor" in Hebrew) should change its name to the Party of Crawlers, and Kadima ("forward" in Hebrew) should be renamed Achora ("Backwards") (Yes, voters must know the essence of a party they intent to vote for! Wasn't Lieberman prepared to swap land of Israel for the Jewish land in Judea and Samaria? Israel needs fewer 'pragmatists' and more patriots in the government!)
Must Israel Care? Quartet Middle East envoy Tony Blair called on Israel to pump $28 million a month into Gaza banks to save the financial system from collapse. Blair wrote that the money is needed to cover salaries that are paid for by the Palestinian Authority (PA). (Aren’t they seeking independence from Israel? They terrorize Jews, but we must pay to save their rotten and corrupt terror infested system!)
Excavating the Philistine. In 2006 The University of Melbourne became involved with the ongoing Bar-Ilan University excavations at Tel es-Safi, ancient Gath, the largest of five cities of the Philistines, located mid-way between Jerusalem and Ashkelon. Among the key discoveries is the earliest Philistine inscription, twice mentioning the name “Goliath.” Gath has architecture, pottery and dining habits attested in Greece and Cyprus. (Maybe all residents of Gaza will learn the ancient Philistine language, which was a dialect of Greek, in order to give to their claim on land some appearance of legitimacy!)
Egypt Used Honesty as Self-protection. Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit has accused Hamas of exploiting the Gilad Shalit negotiations for political manipulations. Interviewed by the BBC, he said: ''Those people trying to obtain the opening of the Rafah terminal are not looking to serve the interests of the Palestinian people, but rather to appear more legitimate.'' (In order to keep the residents of Gaza out of Egypt, Mr. Gheit gave an honest assessment of Hamas. Who else but Egypt knows the true nature, ideology and conduct of Hamas, which is part of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood?)
Are You Ready for the Taste of Islamic Justice? 1. In Amman, Jordan, a 60-year-old Palestinian man killed his 17-year-old daughter ''to save the honour of the family''. Every year, some 20 women in Jordan are victims of ''honour killings.'' An autopsy of the girl showed she was still a virgin. 2. In Saudi Arabia, a man convicted of theft and murder was decapitated by sabre on Thursday. According to Associated Press, 73 people in Saudi Arabia have had their heads sliced off in 2008.
Europe Died in Auschwitz.
by Sebastian Vivar Rodriguez, November, 2004.
I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims.
In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.
And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride. They have turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naďve hosts. And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.
