Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

In order to win over gullible Jewish voters, Barack Obama came to Israel during his election campaign. Since then, in spite of his pretence, that he cares about the Arab-Israel conflict, he has visited many countries but Israel. At the same time, he humiliates Prime Minister Netanyahu by regularly jolting him on Washington’s ‘red carpet’!

US Carried out Targeted Assassination in Gaza

A missile fired from an American warship in the Mediterranean killed Muhammad Jamal A-Namnam, an operational commander of the Army of Islam - Al-Qaeda's ‘Palestinian’ cell, in Gaza City on Wednesday, Nov 3. (Only Israel “must” restrain her action against enemies - Any other self-respecting nation has no such obligation!)

Another ‘Moderate’ Supporter of Islamic Terror

Yemen’s President Abdullah Ali Saleh refused to allow a US special forces raid on al Qaeda package plotters. Many countries have banned air cargo from Yemen following the discovery of an elaborate mail-bomb plot that originated in Yemen.

“Blame Jews for Everything” - Old Habits Die Hard!

A fire at Alliance Church on Haneviim Street in central Jerusalem was actually caused by the church's own candles, police found. Palestinian Authority leaders and church officials had promptly blamed the fire on “extremist Israeli settlers.”

PA Says Big “NO” to any Peace Proposal!

A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official absolutely rejected a proposal that Israel lease lands in the PA state be created as a way of getting talks between the two sides moving again. The lease precedent was established in the peace agreement between Israel and Jordan in 1994.

France is a Wimp No one can Trust

The day after Osama bin Laden warned France to remove its troops from Afghanistan, French Defence Minister Herve Morin announced Thursday, Oct. 28 that the withdrawal of French troops would begin in early 2011. (France is always consistent with its inconsistent if not ‘strange’ politics)

Loom of Another Civil War?

The United States accused the militant group Hezbollah and its allies Iran and Syria of attempting to endanger Lebanon’s stability and undermine its independence. Many Lebanese fear that if the U.N. tribunal investigating the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri – the current prime minister’s father – accuses members of Hezbollah of his killing, the government could collapse and clashes could erupt between Shiite fighters and Hariri's mainly Sunni allies.

Hideous Political Maneuvering.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague signed a “treaty between nations” with Palestinian Authority leaders on Wednesday. “This agreement is the first ever bilateral treaty between the two nations,” the British Consulate-General site proclaimed. (I am not a lawyer, but isn’t it in violation of the dead and buried Oslo accords?)

Muslim Children Training for Jihad - Gross Child Abuse!

Islam is training the next generation of mujahideens who are expected to fight and kill infidels to establish global Islamic rule. A disgusting video below shows a 12-yr old Muslim boy as he BUTCHERS a hostage. A child indoctrinated by Islamic terrorists is actually beheading a man incited by “Allahu Akbar”. WARNING: It is too graphic to watch! http://www.truthtube.tv/play.php?vid=2008

Quote of the Week:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie." Goebbels - The second sentence is less known, but even more important! Many governments had been using this principle!

Why are Only Jews Deported?

by Steven Shamrak.

Critics of Israel love selective mentioning of UN resolutions, but they do not like it when people actually read the original text of the resolutions. Quite often interpretation of the UN resolutions has nothing to do with the actual text. Most of them were not even adopted because Arab countries rejected them at the time.

The text of UN resolution 181 has clearly specified the right of Jews to live in Gaza, Judea and Samaria - West Bank. Therefore the deportation of 8,500 Jews from Gaza was an immoral and illegal act.

Resolution 181 (II). Future government of Palestine, adopted on 29 November 1947, address the issue of citizenship of the future population of Palestine.

Chapter 3 - Citizenship, international conventions and financial obligations

Citizenship. Palestinian citizens residing in Palestine outside the City of Jerusalem, upon the recognition of independence, become citizens of the State in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights. …Persons over the age of eighteen years may opt, within one year from the date of recognition of independence of the State in which they reside, for citizenship of the other State, providing that no Arab residing in the area of the proposed Arab State shall have the right to opt for citizenship in the proposed Jewish State

At the time of declaration of Israel’s independence Arabs were not residents of Israel, but of a proposed Arab state. Arabs rejected the UN partition plan. They rejected the independence. As a result, they should be the citizens of an Arab state, like Syria, Lebanon, Iraq etc - from countries where most of them had come.

Questions still must be asked: Why did the Israeli government grant citizenship to Arabs, who were “residing in the area of the proposed Arab State”, like Arabs of Jaffa or the Negev at the same time when 850,000 Jews were being expelled from Arab states? Why did the government of Israel not apply this paragraph of the UN resolution but opted for the creation of self-destructive, demographic problems in Israel? Why are only the anti-Israel parts of the UN resolutions, even not adopted ones, promoted and implemented?

The UN resolution allowed Jews to live outside borders of the Jewish State, officially endorsed by the UN, just as Arabs have been residing in the State of Israel. Recently Jews were deported from Gaza by Sharon. Why are Arabs not deported from Israel using the same twisted logic of ‘peace’? By rejecting UN Resolutions 181 and 242, Arabs lost any legal claim to Gaza and the West Bank. Therefore protest against Jews living in the West Bank and Gaza is just another Arab anti-Israel propaganda ploy supported by international anti-Semites and self-hating Jews.

‘The big and important issues’ like: construction of by-pass roads, Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount, Jerusalem tunnel etc… - were forged trepidations. Their purpose is to divert public attention from the legitimate right of Jewish people to live on their ancestral land, create political instability and to hide the obvious intention of Arab states, including the PA, to destroy Israel!
