Hidden Agenda and Goodwill Gestures.

Political Courage is Needed!

American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to Israel last week will be the 17th time in two years she has visited the region. Expectations are low that she will succeed in her newest bid to forge any viable agreement. (The fake peace process is fostered by the USA and international hypocrisy. It has been creating an illusion of progress and the possibility of peace with the enemies of Israel. As a result the ugliness of Islamic terror, detrimental to the lives of Jews and the future of Israel, is prolonged. This pretence hinders the implementation of the actions Israel must take against the terror-infested ideology and people in order to obtain national integrity and secure the future of Jewish people!)

U.S.  Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's freeing of nearly 200 Arab terrorists the day before was a "good step" but not enough. However, her only specific suggestions were aimed at Israel. She made no comments on obligations by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to fight terror! (Have we seen any ‘Goodwill’ from the enemies of the Jewish people?)

Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) fulfilled the time-honoured PA tradition of rejecting any form of peace with Israel last week as soon as nearly 200 convicted terrorists crossed the border into PA territory. “I promise we won’t rest until we bring about the release of all the prisoners,” vowed Abbas in a special welcome ceremony for the 198 terrorists released by Israel in the latest “goodwill gesture” (The only way not to have terrorists imprisoned in Israel’s prisons is to end terror and recognise Israel. Is it too much to ask?)

Abbas reiterated his intention (as Arafat before him) to reject peace with Israel, despite numerous security concessions by the Olmert government.  He has said he would accept only an agreement that includes contiguous land between Gaza, Judea and Samaria, and with Jerusalem as the capital of the new PA state. (That means – No Israel! The contiguous ‘Palestinian’ state can be only established in Sinai. In order to facilitate this there is a need for political vision, courage and love for their own people, Jews, on the part of Israeli politicians. No one else can deliver an end of Islamic terror in Israel but Israel. Stop looking over your shoulder and do what is right for the future of your own people! Every other country does!)

Double Standard of International Hypocrisy: Recent US-led air strike killed, according to UN and Afghan officials, as many as 90 civilians. – There is not U.N. Security Council emergency meeting! No international condemnation! What would happen if mistake like this was made by Israel?

Food for Thought: by Steven Shamrak

The reason why Muslim countries have not pulled the political stunt by recognizing Fathastan and Hamastan by now, like Russia has done with southern South Ossetia and Abkhazia, is because it would mean the recognition of the right of Israel to exist. This is definitely not their intention!

Ethnic Cleansing Nearly Over in S. Ossetia. The process of ethnic cleansing in the breakaway Georgian provinces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is nearly complete, according to Georgian Foreign Minister Eka Tkeshelashvili. (No international out cry! No UN condemnation and intervention!)

PA Rejected Peace Again. The PA president Mahmoud Abbas rejected Olmert's plea of an interim agreement. Abas told Olmert during talks in Jerusalem that ‘Palestinians’ "will not be part of any interim agreement. Either everything will be agreed or nothing will be agreed” and dismissed the idea of a pact by the end of this year. (‘Peace Process’ is just a game for PA. All Palestine, including Jordan, is the ultimate PA’s objective!)

Never Ending Escalation of Demands. Israel may be willing to release up to 450 Hamas terrorists from its jails in return for Cpl. Gilad Shalit. But, Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida said on Saturday the group would not settle for its earlier demand for 450 Palestinian prisoners, but is seeking the release of more than 1,000 in exchange for Shalit. (Humiliation of Israel, not release of the prisoners, is the objective of Hamas!)

Quotes of the Week:

“We do not have the right to let the barbarians triumph, because defeat at the other end of the world will come at the cost of a defeat on the territory of the French Republic''French President Nicolas Sarkozy, paying tribute to the 10 French paratroopers killed in Afghanistan - For over 60 years Israel has been fighting the same “barbarians”. The fictitious ‘Palestinians’ are an integral part of the global Islamic terror machinery!

Is Israel in Africa? Officials from 21 African countries meeting in Nigeria have adopted a blueprint for a Geneva meeting on racism next April to raise "concern about the plight of the ‘Palestinian’ people under foreign occupations." (African countries have forsaken the Sudanese genocide in Darfur and do not want address problems in Uganda and instead use Israel bashing as a good distracter! The AIDS epidemic, corruption and poverty are also not their concern. Why Israel is?)

Jewish Contribution to US Advancement. Four Jewish scientists, including two who fled the Nazis, represent half the number of Americans to be awarded the National Medal of Science by American President George W. Bush next month. Their work has focused on cell technology, nuclear physics, computer science and biochemistry.

Tell Me Who is Your Friend and I’ll Know Who You Are. Hamas in Gaza is the first entity in the world to recognize the ‘independence’ of Georgian separatist areas in southern Ossetia and Abkhazia. (Representatives of the fake Palestinian nation gave their approval to the imperial ambition of Russia! Why didn’t they recognise the independence of Chechnya during its struggle for independence from Russia?)

Sad Story of the Fame with Distorted Brain. Argentinean-Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim has lashed out at Israel for failing to try to understand Palestinian life. "A large number of Israelis have no idea what Palestinian society is," said Barenboim. (This is another case of a Jew who is suffering from Stockholm syndrome! Kassam rockets and suicide bombings are the best expressions of 'Palestinian' curiosity in the life of Israelis! How many enemies of Jews care about Jewish “society”? Must we care about them?)

Olmert's Leaving…But Hold the Celebrations.

by Rob Muchnick and Tova Abadi, Manhigut Yehudit.

Before Israelis celebrate the impending exit of the inept and corrupt Ehud Olmert from the Prime Minister's chair, it should be understood that there will be no real change in Israel until there is a leader who will guide Israel with Jewish values and will put the best interests of the Jewish People ahead of their own fortunes. It makes no difference if Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni or Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz head Kadima and then sit in the Prime Minister's office, as both of these pretenders have clearly demonstrated their lack of commitment to any ideology except their political advancement.

In fact, the situation may go from very, very bad to worst. Olmert was unable (due to the multitude of corruption charges against him) to carry out further Israeli concessions. However, Livni or Mofaz - by benefit of only being ideologically and not financially corrupt - may have the political capital to continue the so-called "peace" process which only serves to tear at the heart of the Jewish people by giving away our Divinely-given land. Tragically, it also serves to weaken the belief in the righteousness of our cause by Jews worldwide.

It is impossible for Israel to survive as a Jewish Nation when the real war being fought is against Jewish identity. It is equally impossible to survive with policies of appeasement and "painful concessions." Israel needs an honest, moral leader who will act in the best interests of Israel and the Jewish People and not as a puppet for the nations.
