Fake Friends or Enemies?
Friendly Boycott? PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has publicized a law making it illegal to market goods produced in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. (Jews must boycott all Arab goods, including OIL! Drive less, walk more – It is good for your health! Not buying vegetables produced by the PA Arabs is a good start.)
Well Known ‘Revelation’. In spite of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt secured with an Israeli retreat from Sinai, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmad Abu al-Rite said at a press conference held in Beirut that Israel is the enemy. (Egypt has never hidden its relentless animosity toward Israel. It is time for Israel to stop this pretence of the peace and return to Sinai as the best security buffer zone from future attacks by Egypt or Libya.)
Two Enemies United by Hate Toward Israel. Syria is tightening its military alliance with Turkey, a NATO member, as it reinforces its recent threat to send Israel back to "the Stone Age" if it attacks Hizbullah. Syrian President Bashar Assad told a Kuwaiti newspaper it has "surprises" in store for Israel. (Turkey and Syria have unresolved disputed territorial issues which are being set aside for ‘the common good’ - Islamic expansionism!)
What are the Rockets for? U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said at the end of his meeting with Defense Minister Ehud Barak in the Pentagon that Syria and Iran are supplying Hezbollah with weapons and that Hezbollah now has more missiles and rockets than most world governments.

War against the Judeo-Christian West was declared long ago under the flag of a Wahhabi kingdom, Saudi Arabia! To survive, we must to win it! Arabs used to enslave us forcibly - nowadays they use oil to buy slaves in vast number. Unfortunately, there are too many among us who are willingly selling themselves into slavery!
‘Compromise’ for the Sake of Fake Talks. Washington sources report that instead of a freeze on all Israeli construction in East Jerusalem, the Obama administration asks Israel to quietly suspend all building licenses and other permits for just four weeks, to give US Middle East envoy George Mitchell a chance to persuade the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to accept US-moderated proximity talks. (How long will the stupidity of the fake peace process continue? The PA is not interested in peace but in the destruction of the Jewish state.)
Egyptians Used Chemical Weapon? Egyptian military forces have killed four Palestinians by pumping poisonous gas into a cross-border tunnel. It is alleged that Egyptian security forces have sprayed gas into tunnels before, without killing people. (Symptomatically the world ignores this violation of the Geneva Convention by its silence.)
Quote of the Week: "The Christians, the Jews, and the treacherous apostate rulers have pounced on you... you (Muslims) have no other way out from this plight other than to wage Jihad" - Saeed al-Shehri, Yemen-based wing of al-Qaida, a former Saudi inmate at the US prison at Guantanamo Bay – Islamists do not discriminate. They Hate Infidels (Christians) even more than Jews! But “Infidel” countries still support them in their determination to destroy Israel!
Ugly Enemy of Humanity. A Palestinian Authority cleric informed his television congregants in Hamas terrorist-controlled Gaza that the active volcano in Iceland was Divinely ignited to punish “infidels and polytheists with fear and terror.” The Hamas cleric also mocked the United States: “As Allah lives, dear brothers, America – with its numbers and its equipment, with its might and its sceptre, with its planes and its missiles, with its war ships and with its destroyers – it has no more power against Allah than do spider webs against His power.”
No Commitment to Betrayal. Despite a 2002 road map commitment by former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to then-United States President George W. Bush, Israel’s government has reportedly been backing away from destroying the 23 Judean and Samarian Jewish villages built after March 2001. One reason government sources have given for this change of attitude is that the pledge to destroy the villages was made while being misled by Bush into believing that America would support Israel retaining control over larger Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
Obama's Wrong Approach: Land First, Peace Later. The US president gives Israel and the Palestinians a four-month time-frame for negotiating his Middle East peace plan whereby Palestinian state borders would enclose 96 percent of the West Bank and 133,000 Israelis evacuated. The 4 percent left with Israel would include Jerusalem. (Why should Israel give up Jewish land to the enemy? The US has no intention to return California, Texas and New Mexico to their friendly neighbour and rightful owner, Mexico!)
Hypocrisy in Action:
UN to buy 500,000 OLPC laptops for Palestinian children... – Have your kids received free laptops? While many millions of refugees around the world are lacking food and medicine, the UN has been giving privileged treatment and showing unprecedented generosity to these ‘professional refugees’ just because they are enemies of the Jews!
Is Bibi a Useless Poser and Liar? Two Jerusalem officials say Israel has frozen plans for new construction in the city's disputed eastern sector despite Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's declarations to the contrary. (The freeze is just a meaningless appeasement – it will bring no change!)
Israel to Help Africa Fight the Desert. Having "conquered the desert" at home, Israel is ready to share technology and skills with African countries struggling to sustain agricultural output due to increasingly unreliable rains Israel's minister of agriculture and rural development, Shalom Simhon, said. Sharing know-how, especially in irrigation and water management, was his focus on a tour of Senegal, Ivory Coast and Gabon.
PA Factions say No to Peace Talks. Eight Palestinian Authority factions meeting in Syria have rejected peace talks with Israel based on the “two-state solution”. Among the factions were Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The groups called on the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), the umbrella group that created the PA, to immediately stop talks with Israel. (So-called Palestinians have never wanted peace with Israel and have used the peace process to weaken Israel’s position.)
Obama’s Security Advisor is anti-Jewish Bigot. James Jones, U.S. President Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser told an anti-Semitic joke while addressing a conservative think tank in Washington. Jones served as former President George W. Bush’s Middle East military envoy and was considered by the IDF to be a “thorn in the side.” One think tank member said the joke was "wrong in so many levels," and added, "Can you imagine him telling a black joke at an event of African Americans?" (Will he resign? Bigots’ apologies mean absolutely nothing!)

Israel's status as the US's most vital ally in the Middle East has been so widely recognized for so long that over the years, Israeli and American leaders alike have felt it unnecessary to explain what it is about the alliance that makes it so important for the US.
Today, as the Obama administration is openly distancing the US from Israel while giving the impression that Israel is a strategic impediment to the administration's attempts to strengthen its relations with the Arab world… (For the sake of the oil flow, betrayal of Jews is a small price to pay!) Only Israel, where the government reflects the will of the people is a reliable, permanent US ally.
America reaps the benefits of its alliance with Israel every day. As the US suffers from chronic intelligence gaps, Israel remains the US's most reliable source for accurate intelligence on the US's enemies in the region.
Israel is the US's only ally in the Middle East that always fights its own battles. Indeed, Israel has never asked the US for direct military assistance in time of war. Since the US and Israel share the same regional foes, when Israel is called upon to fight its enemies, its successes redound to the US's benefit…
Israel provides a reliable regional military base for the US which is available at any time in case of trouble in the Arab world that would put the US national interest, oil supply, in jeopardy!
America's three permanent strategic interests in the Middle East are as follows:
1 - Ensuring the smooth flow of affordable petroleum products from the region to global consumers through the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden and the Suez Canal.
2 - Preventing the most radical regimes, sub-state and non-state actors from acquiring the means to cause catastrophic harm.
3 - Maintaining the US's capacity to project its power to the region.
A strong Israel is the best guarantor of all of these interests. Indeed, the stronger Israel is, the more secure these vital American interests are. Three permanent and unique aspects to Israel's regional position dictate this state of affairs.
1 - As the first target of the most radical regimes and radical sub-state actors in the region, Israel has a permanent, existential interest in preventing these regimes and sub-state actors from acquiring the means to cause catastrophic harm.
2 - Israel is a non-expansionist state and its neighbours know it. In its 62 year history, Israel has only controlled territory vital for its national security and territory that was legally allotted to it in the 1922 League of Nations Mandate which has never been abrogated or superseded. (At the same time, Israel must start to look after its own interests. We must remember that in 1922, the League of Nations allocated Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Trans-Jordan as part of the Jewish state, Eretz-Israel!)
3 - Since as the Jewish state Israel is the regional bogeyman, no Arab state will agree to form a permanent alliance with it. Hence, Israel will never be in a position to join forces with another nation against a third nation (the US)…
