Speaking after the visit of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Brussels, the EU’s foreign policy chief, Frederica Mogherini made an astonishing declaration of ignorance, again! (It is not “ignorance”, but deliberate political stand of the traditional international anti-Semites!)
“We always say that the Two State Solution is the only realistic one,” she said.
… Under the British Mandate, “Palestinian” was the term for JEW! Hence, we could also add theft of nationality (by the Soviet KGB Disinformation service) to hypocrisy. “Palestinians” are not mentioned in the famous 1967 UN Resolution 242. Why? Because they did not exist. The real Palestinians had changed their name to Israelis.
Egypt’s dictator Nasser and the Soviet communists had invented the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1964 to Arabize and communize the entire territory of the Palestinian Mandate. That included the “kingdom” across the Jordan!
Two State Solution coincides with the first major attempt to blackmail Western
Europe’s Foreign Policy. It dates from the 1967 Six Day war.
This year is the fiftieth birthday. Oil Blackmail still does not work!
It should be recalled that in 1967, there was little that could be called European Foreign Policy. Foreign policy was a national affair. ..
Warnings were made in the 1950s about Europe’s increasing reliance on oil. The 1956 Suez crisis showed how fragile links to the Middle East oil were. However. despite attempts of the good Europeans to face up to potential Islamist energy blackmail by combining the defense of the three Communities, the policy was blocked by one factor. General de Gaulle took power in 1957. He changed the foreign policy of France from a pro-Israel to a pro-Arab one because of oil.
This was myopic.
In the 1967 oil crisis France got off the hook. But the Arab oil exporters wanted to use the Oil Weapon to change the foreign policy of the other major States. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Libya, and Algeria stopped oil shipments to the United States, West Germany and the United Kingdom (not yet a member of the Communities). Why? Because those countries were directly or indirectly helping Israel and did not want to maintain the pre-1967 cease-fire lines as borders. And they weren’t friendly to Islamic indoctrination.
That is the real birth of oil blackmail aimed at dictating to the world an Islamic anti-Israel foreign policy. Although the British came up with a two State solution first, it was as a temporary political measure…
In 1973 the Arab Oil Exporting Countries (OAPEC) again deployed the Oil Weapon to change global politics. It first tried a total oil embargo for some States, cuts of 5 percent per month for others. Then it quadrupled the price, shutting down the European economy. ..
For decades after WW2, the price of oil was under two dollars a barrel. It gave oil exporters fat profits, yachts and a playboy lifestyle. Two dollars then is equivalent to under 10 dollars today. Massive oilfields have since been discovered.
Under the Oil Cartel OPEC, the price rose to near 150 dollars a barrel!
Hanukah is the commemoration of Jewish national struggle for liberation of the Eretz-Israel, the Land of Israel, not just a “Festival of Light”! May Jewish land be free from enemy occupation soon again!
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has already been promising to give away property in Jerusalem to an enemy of the State of Israel. Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said that Abbas “promised to act quickly to provide property for Lebanon in East Jerusalem.” Abbas owns no property in Jerusalem, and in fact has no right even to enter Jerusalem at present.
The Hamas declared that “Al-Quds (all Jerusalem) is the eternal capital of Palestine. The terrorist group further stressed that it was continuing the path of liberation and the resistance in all its aspects until the last layer of historic Palestinian land is liberated, noting that it "bombed occupied Tel Aviv that was established on our occupied land in Jaffa."
A plan to deport more than 40,000 illegal immigrants from Israel passed the Knesset, paving the way for the implementation of the program previously blocked by the Supreme Court. Thousands of infiltrators have been detained since a surge in illegal immigration less than a decade ago. The bill, which passed 71 to 41, would also empower the government to deport illegal immigrants who refuse to self-deport in exchange for compensation. (Why has it taken so long? But it is not the end of the unfortunate saga yet!)
A rocket launched at Israel from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening fell inside Gaza, causing damage to UNRWA school in Beit Hanoun… Two rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system, and a third landed in an open field in the Eshkol region. Sweet Justice: A rocket fired from Gaza on Friday evening towards southern Israel missed its mark and fell on the Beit Hanoun home of a Gaza terrorist, brother of Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri. (Almost 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel in one week. Predictably, there is no international ‘outcry’ - press is silent!)
The Knesset's Finance Committee afternoon approved the transfer of 45 million NIS ($12,800,000) to bulletproof Judea and Samaria buses. (No other country needs it! Israel would also save a lot if all enemy population wereremoved from Jewish land.)
An Arab illegal outpost was built by the Ramadin tribe near the Jewish town of Alfei Menashe in western Samaria. The land in question belongs to the Himnuta organization, a subsidiary of the Jewish National Fund. The State has agreed with petitioners that an illegal Arab outpost was built on privately owned Jewish land in Samaria. (Israeli justice system allows Arabs to use and build illegally on Jewish land, but is quite biased against Zionists!)
Egypt's Coptic Church head Pope Tawadros II cancelled a meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence in Cairo later this month in protest at Washington's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. (Christian churches were not allowed to ring bells during occupation of Jerusalem by Jordan. They are killed by Muslims in Egypt and other Muslim states. But Jew-hate prevails!)
Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center used a material developed in Israel for NASA’s space program in orthopedic surgery. The advanced polymeric material is “self-shielding, has high heat resistance, zero wear, high strength and light weight.
The United States accused the Palestinian Authority of “walking away” from a chance to discuss peace in the Middle East by snubbing Vice President Mike Pence on an upcoming visit. “It’s unfortunate that the Palestinian Authority is walking away again from an opportunity to discuss the future of the region,” said Jarrod Agen, Pence’s deputy chief of staff. (There has been no peace process - just a procrastination to commit more terror against Jews! You can’t stop anything that has not even started!)
Israel’s security cabinet will be able to decide to go to war without consulting the full cabinet. Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) explained that the move would optimize the work of government and the cabinet and help to prevent leaks in this era of social networks and fast-moving information.
At a panel of the Women Political Leaders Global Forum (WPL) annual global summit 2017 in Reykjavik, Iceland, some 15 representatives from Arab countries stood up and left the hall when MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) stood up to speak.
Rabbi Aharon Teitelboim of Satmar slams Trump's declaration. 'The Zionist state is not a Jewish state and is not recognized by Jews.' Satmar, known as one of the most dogmatically anti-Zionist Hassidic sects, refuses to recognize the State of Israel. There is also the Neturei Karta, a small, extremist haredi faction which was ostracized by mainstream haredi groups over its support for then-PLO chief Yasser Arafat, and which vehemently opposes the existence of a Jewish state. (We Jews produced quite a few geniuses and talented people - also idiots!)
The Supreme Court ordered that the Palestinian Authority compensate the family of Amos Mantin, a Bezeq telephone technician murdered in a shooting attack in 2003, with the sum of 3 million shekels ($US853,000). The terrorist, a 15-and-a-half-year-old Arab, carried out the attack ten days after his return from the Palestinian Authority's "body and weapons training camp" in Jericho. (It would be even better to remove all terror-infested enemy population from Jewish land!)
QUOTE of the WEEK:
"On this holiday we are proud to stand with the Jewish people who light up the world. We also stand with the people of Israel, the Jewish state which is itself a historical miracle." - US President Donald Trump sent a holiday greetings in honor of Hanukkah – Will this shut up all those idiots who accuse Trump of anti-Semitism?
There are about 1,000 Christian missionary groups that spend $300 million annually, targeting Jews worldwide for conversion, often by camouflaging themselves to appear as Jewish organisations or congregations!
In 1998, there was a move to draft serious anti-missionary legislation in the Knesset. Labor MK Zvilli and Shas MK Gafni jointly sponsored the Bill. In that same period the American Congress passed the “International Religious Freedoms Act”, which Evangelical Christians (including Jews for Jesus) used in order to get the American State Department to pressure Israel to withdraw planned anti-missionary legislation.
Then Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was accused of breaking a promise to Christian leaders abroad by voting for the anti-missionary bill during its first reading in the Knesset.
Senator Jesse Helms, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and other fervent supporters of Israel were livid with Netanyahu. Israel was also threatened with trade sanctions from the United States if the legislation passed.
Opposition was spearheaded within Israel by the Messianic Action Committee (MAC), a group calling for “deliberate, continuous and intense pressure” on Israeli lawmakers by opinion-makers, politicians and other interested parties who are friendly towards Israel.
Zvilli withdrew support for the bill he had sponsored, and Netanyahu buckled.
To make matters worse the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) kicked in with a public statement expressing concern with regards to civil liberties and religious freedom in Israel. Foxman wrote to Netanyahu: “While we are concerned by efforts to convert Jews, we are also concerned by the implications such anti-missionary legislation would have on minority rights in Israel.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu responded with, “Let me assure you again that Israel will pass no laws which limit freedom of religion and contravene the international conventions to which it is a signatory.”
Since those days, the State of Israel has done little to stop the flow of missionaries into this country or to restrict their activities. In fact, Israel has reduced visa restrictions and encouraged them under the auspices of government affiliated organizations...
Israel may feel obligated to protect the holy sites of the three major religions and to respectfully welcome visitors and tourists from various faiths and backgrounds, but why does the Jewish state feel compelled to grant unrestricted American-style religious freedom and freedom of expression to everybody and anybody, and to those who challenge the very nature, character and faith of this land and its people?
