Scolding and the Biblical Law.
by Steven Shamrak.
Real Zionists are often criticized for their strong, uncompromising points of view. Israel is criticized for not doing enough for peace too. But the same people are able to find any inconceivable justification for the horrendous actions of the Jews’ enemies. Many critics are Jewish and, in their strange way, they do care about the Jewish state. Regrettably, a well designed and executed propaganda campaign, supported by terror acts, does affect people on a deep psychological level. Therefore even decent members of the public, who have been exposed to and brainwashed by anti-Israel propaganda for a long time, are unable to evaluate the reality and the facts behind the news.
Even committed Zionists have become indifferent and cynical due to the self-destructive policies and inaction of successive Israel governments. There is an atmosphere of despair among many staunch Zionists and supporters of the state of Israel. Even they have begun to use ‘politically correct’ terminology and self-limiting ideas. This creates the perception of hopelessness and facilitates an inability to follow through the realisation of the Jewish national goal. I would like to address the most commonly expressed statements:
“We can’t have everything” – We do not want ‘everything’! It is ‘others’ have been ‘acquiring’ all they could for centuries. And now, they are imposing limitations on Jews, so we wouldn’t even try to return what is rightfully ours!
“One must be pragmatic and realistic” – The reality is perceived illusion. It is created by action. Why should we accept ‘sh***y’ reality imposed on us by our ‘friends’ and enemies? Only by setting Big goals can anything great can be achieved!
“What about 3 million Arabs living in Israel and the territories” – What about them? Most of them came to Palestine after Zionists started reclaiming Jewish land. The goal of their masters, Arab and British, was to prevent the creation of the state of Israel. There are 22 Arab countries. It is time for them to return home. The message must be clear: Their sinister plan has failed!
“They will not allow us…” – Those mysterious “They” again: ‘They’ were silent and did not want Jews to survive the Holocaust, ‘They’ did everything possible to prevent creation of the only Jewish state. ‘They’ have been doing nothing to stop Arab terror against Israel. Must we care what ‘They’ think? We must do what is right for us. Nobody else will. This is the only way!
It is written in Torah that if a thief is trying to tunnel into your house at night, you are allowed to kill him (the reasoning is that your life is without a doubt endangered). Arabs have continually said that they want to remove all Jews from Palestine. Only recently, they actually spent 4 months digging a 730 meter long tunnel and killed 5 Israelis. For two thousand years Jews let robbery and killings go unpunished. We closed our eyes on too many ‘tunnels’. The time has come to invoke the biblical law!
Hate is Global and They Hate Christians even More. An angry Muslim mob attacked Christian-owned shops and houses, burned down eight churches and injured several people in the northern Nigerian town of Kazaure. Tension in the region has been high since last month's Muslim rioting in Jos where 300 people reportedly were killed, human rights activists report.
Hypocrisy of the Headlines.
Israel can accelerate peace by exercising restraint - guardian.co.uk – How much more restraint should one exercise? Has it worked? Have the enemies of Israel shown any interest in peace and restraint from terror?
Access to Jewish Holy Sites a Provocation? Netanyahu sparked outrage in the Arab world when he said he hoped to include Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron in a Jewish national heritage plan. PA leader Mahmud Abbas denounced Israeli ‘provocation’: "Such provocation cannot contribute positively to the progress of the peace process". (Maybe the time has come for Israel to end the Islamic provocation by closing access to the Temple Mountain, Al-Aqsa Mosque, to Muslims.)
Rare Public Expression of Appreciation. Col. Richard Kemp, who was a commander of British forces in Afghanistan, said the advice he received from the IDF on how to fight Afghan suicide bombers was invaluable and formed the basis of official army guidelines used by British soldiers there. Kemp also said the international media was being exploited by the enemy to harm Israel.
No International Outrage? Sources in Pakistan reported that Mohammed Haqqani, brother of Afghan Taliban leader Siraj Haqqani, was killed by a United States missile in northwest Pakistan, near the border with Afghanistan. (The alleged killing of a renowned terrorist by Israel in Dubai brought out all sort of anti-Israeli, if not anti-Semitic, rhetoric.)
Arab Sector Crime Up, Jewish Sector Crime Down. New worrying data has shown an increase in crime in Israeli Arab communities, while there was a decline in that of Jewish communities. Figures show that while Israeli-Arabs make up only 20% of the population, they are responsible for some 41% of the murders. (This is consistent with the Islamic murderous tradition of terror. Most Western countries are ‘politically correct’ and do not disclose ‘ethnic’ statistics related to the Muslim contribution to the rise of local crime and acts of violence.)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Considering the amount of noise that has been generated by London after the assassination of Mahmud al-Mabhuh in Dubai, the number of agents involved in the operation (26) and the risk factor for a Jewish agent being caught in a hostile Arab country, it would be reasonable to suspect that this elimination of the renowned Islamic terrorist was conducted or orchestrated by MI6, and the identity of British nationals, who are residing in Israel, have been deliberately selected in order to deflect attention and blame toward Mossad and Israel.
After a Year of Intensive anti-Israel Propaganda. UN Middle East envoy Robert Serry, in a meeting with President Peres in Jerusalem, drops a bombshell: “There is no humanitarian problem in Gaza.”
Sometimes People Know their True Friends and Enemies! American sympathy for Israel has surged, with 63% of Americans siding more with Israelis than with Palestinians, according to a new Gallup poll.
Iran has Called Sanctions Bluff. Iran announced on Monday that it plans to start constructing two new uranium enrichment sites next month. (And it is all in the name of ‘peace’)
Respect for Jewish Heritage and Ownership of the Land. Israel is planning to include two Jewish shrines in the Judea and Samaria areas in a national plan to rehabilitate some 150 Jewish and Zionist heritage sites: Rachel's Tomb, near the city of Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a site holy to Muslims and Jews in the tinderbox city of Hebron.
Fatah Immortalizing Terrorists. Mahmoud Al-Alul of the Fatah central committee said that Fatah will continue to immortalize all its terrorists, especially Dalal Al-Mughrabi, second in command in the 1978 Bloody Coast attack, in which 35 people were murdered and 71 wounded.
BBC is Back on its anti-Semitic Saddle. A guest on BBC Radio 4 was allowed to state unchallenged that the Israeli intelligence service Mossad relies on Jews around the world to assist in alleged assassinations. The claim by Gordon Thomas, author of Gideon's Spies, came during a segment about the assassination of a Hamas terrorist in Dubai. The BBC reporter had done nothing to call the so-called expert to order! (Just imagine what the BBC would do if the same comment was said about the assistance and participation of the Muslim population in the 9/11 or September 7th attacks - and what international outrage would it create? Even fake Political Correctness does not apply to Jews!)
Quote of the Week: "The president [Obama] seems to be more concerned about whether or not Jewish families build bedrooms on their apartments than whether Iran is building a nuclear bomb." - former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, referring to the Obama administration's longstanding demand that Israel halt all Jewish construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem as a useless gesture to re-start fake talks with the Palestinian Authority.
Standing for Jewish Rights on Jewish Land. Thirty-five Land of Israel activists (part of a group of 60, who marched into Jericho as part of an effort to promote a Jewish return to the city) were arrested a week ago by the Samaria and Judea (Shai) district of the Israel Police. Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari said that the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization - which led to the establishment of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Judea, Samaria and Gaza - are dead: "We won't let them create an enemy state in the land of Israel under our noses."
In his eight months in office, Israeli Prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has gone back on his fundamental pledges as Likud leader to disallow Palestinian statehood, expand Jewish West Bank settlement, reject one-sided Israeli concessions to the Palestinians prior to negotiations and act firmly to oust Hamas rule of the Gaza Strip. This week, he sent uniformed cops and troops to hand out a pile of freeze notices to his core constituency, Jewish West Bank communities.
Most Israelis distrust him for giving away assets for no return and then failing to win credit for the gesture from Palestinians, Arabs or Europeans, who continue to slam the Jewish state regardless.
Netanyahu never seems to tire of inviting the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to sit down and talk peace, while defense minister Barak thumps on the table each time he says: "We have to go back to negotiations and bring a Palestinian state into being!" Both are deaf to the total silence, which greets their words from the Palestinians and Arab capitals.
Moreover, Fatah party's sixth conference in Bethlehem in August 13. 2009 deliberately shut the door on negotiations by re-endorsing charter section 19, which affirms: "Armed struggle is a strategy not a tactic. The armed revolution of the Arab Palestinian people is a crucial element in the battle for liberation and for the elimination of the Zionist presence. This struggle will not stop until the Zionist entity is eliminated and Palestine is liberated." Another conference decision was: "There must be absolute opposition, from which there is no withdrawal, to recognizing Israel as a Jewish state…”
The trouble is that every time the Israeli Prime minister backs down from a promise, he implies the need to do Washington's bidding for the sake of its support for military action against Iran's nuclear facilities.
There is no (must not be any) correlation between halting West Bank construction and action to thwart a nuclear-armed Iran. The fact is that the Obama administration like its predecessor is against an Israeli military initiative - even if it means letting Iran go ahead and develop a bomb - for fear that Iran will send its retaliatory missiles flying against Israel and American interests in the Persian Gulf and the Middle East and drag the US inexorably into the conflict.
