Left is still Delusional about Peace
by Shoula Romano Horing
While the Middle East is burning around us, the center-left
political camp is still trying to convince Israeli voters that Israel can live in peace with its Arab
neighbors and be embraced lovingly by the world.
The Islamic State has released a
22-minutes video showing the burning alive of a Jordanian pilot who was trapped
in a cage while being filmed. If these terrorists could do this to a fellow
Arab-Muslim, imagine what Islamic Jihadists like Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas,
Islamic Jihad and Fatah would do (to Jews in) the Jewish state.
But despite this harsh, horrific reality
in the Middle
East, Tzipi Livni and Isaac Herzog are
still trying to convince Israeli voters that peace is possible for Israel in the Middle East.
The center-left political camp still
argues that if Israel would only engage with or negotiate with
its Arab enemies, and especially Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, there is
a chance for peace. They argue that the roots of the conflict and the
anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish terrorism and hatred are because of the so-called
occupation, the settlements, the zealot settlers, the roadblocks, poverty and a
sense of humiliation and hopelessness among the Arabs.
While the Middle East is burning around us, they minimize and
dismiss the security threats in their election campaign and tell us to
concentrate instead on the economy, social issues.
How much more bloodshed is necessary
before Livni and Herzog and other leftists understand
that even if Israel limited its territory only to the city
this would still not bring peace, but serve as a jumpstart and invitation for
Unfriendliest US Government to the Friendliest Nation!
An Israeli report claims the US administration has stopped updating Israel about developments in nuclear
negotiations with Iran. Susan Rice, US President Obama's
National Security Advisor, has also reportedly announced she is cutting ties
with her Israeli counterpart, Yossi Cohen.
of Islamic Terror!
The slain gunman suspected in the deadly Copenhagen attacks, Omar El-Hussein, was a
22-year-old criminal who has been inspired to redeem himself by committing
Islamic act of terror like the Charlie Hebdo massacre
and Jewish shop in Paris.

#1 Destruction by enemies;
#2 Continuation of the same ugly terror-infused existence, with or without a ‘Palestinian’
state; #3 Reunion of all Jewish land and letting enemy population go! Which

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed Defense Minister
Moshe Ya’alon to move forward with a plan to demolish
some 400 PA structures illegally built in the West Bank with European funding. The order came
shortly after an exposé in the Daily Mail claimed that the EU sank tens of
millions of euros into homes which were not granted building permits. (Why did Netanyahu wait for the exposé?)
in a Search for more Money, giving Fake Promises
Abbas spoke in Stockholm, three months after Sweden became the first European Union member
to recognize Palestinian statehood. He said that he will work to revive peace
talks (he ended) with Israel, but skirted questions on how to end the
conflict or tackle violence by the Islamic militant group Hamas. (Abbas is an illegitimate PA president.
PA elections are long overdue. The last election was won by Hamas!)

More than 400 rabbis, members of Rabbis for Human Rights,

Netanyahu to stop the demolition of PA illegally built constructions. (These so-called spiritual leaders must
‘Ugly Nazi’ - Predictable as Always
there was a recent Hezbollah attack that left two Israeli soldiers and a United
Nations peace keeper dead, the international organization issued a statement.
As the result of a week of consultations with the UNSC, said, “Members of the
Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the killing of a UNIFIL
Spanish peace keeper which occurred in the context of fire exchanges along the
Blue Line on 28 January 2015.” It didn’t mention the Hezbollah attack, nor did it
acknowledge the Israeli Defense Force soldiers, who were killed and wounded.
Iran, Hamas Reconciliation
Iran has decided to renew its full financial sponsorship
of the Hamas terrorist organization that controls the Gaza Strip. Iran also pledged to rearm Hamas, not only in the Gaza
Strip but in Judea and Samaria. It is possible that routes used by Hezbollah to
smuggle drugs from Lebanon into northern Israel will be used.
Do Let Islamists Leave the West
Abdul Rauf, a former Taliban commander and Guantanamo Bay
detainee turned ISIS recruiter, was killed in a drone strike. Rauf and
five others were killed, four of them Pakistani militants, said Mohammed Jan Rasoulya, the deputy governor of southern Helmand province. (They are not innocents who have succumbed to Islamic
propaganda - they are

Quote of the Week:
Authority is in a very fragile state. If you do not restrain the growth of settlement
building - the Oslo
process will end, and with it the security coordination... we will reach
despair and a reality of one state. I believe you (Israel)
have a partner in Ramallah." -
Robert Serry, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle
East Peace Process, in a farewell speech - ‘Useless Nothing’ is still delusional and one-track
minded! There is no more “Oslo process”! It expired almost 10 years
ago when the PA refused to meet its commitments. Israel definitely has no peace partners in the
Journalistic Code of anti-Israel Dishonor!
Friedman, speech of former AP journalist.
I gradually began to be aware of certain
malfunctions in the coverage of the Israel story - recurring omissions,
recurring inflations, decisions made according to considerations that were not
journalistic but political, we sought to hint or say outright that Israeli
soldiers were war criminals, and every detail supporting that portrayal was to
be seized upon.
But an Israeli peace offer and its
rejection by the Palestinians didn’t suit OUR story. The bureau chief ordered
both reporters to ignore the Olmert offer,
Neo-Nazi rallies at Palestinian
universities or in Palestinian cities are not - I saw images of such rallies
suppressed on more than one occasion. Jewish hatred of Arabs is a story. Arab
hatred of Jews is not.
Our policy, for example, was not to
mention the assertion in the Hamas founding charter that Jews were responsible
for engineering both world wars and the Russian and French revolutions, despite
the obvious insight this provides into the thinking of one of the most
influential actors in the conflict.
100 houses in a West Bank settlement are a story, but 100 rockets
smuggled into Gaza are not.
• The Hamas military buildup amid and
under the civilian population of Gaza is not a story. But Israeli military
action responding to that threat - that is a story,
• Israel’s responsibility for the deaths of
civilians as a result - that’s a story. Hamas’s responsibility for those deaths
• Israel’s flaws were dissected and magnified,
while the flaws of its enemies were purposely erased.
• Threats facing Israel were disregarded or even mocked as
figments of the Israeli imagination,
• A fictional image of Israel and of its enemies was manufactured,
polished, and propagated to devastating effect by inflating certain details,
ignoring others, and presenting the result as an accurate picture of reality.
• The international press in Israel had become less an observer of the
conflict than a player in it. It had moved away from careful explanation and
toward a kind of political character assassination
• Something toxic is driving this - ”Jews
are troublemakers, a negative force in world events, and that if these people,
as a collective, could somehow be made to vanish, we would all be better off”.
• The occupation is not the conflict,
which of course predates the occupation. It is a symptom of the conflict, a
conflict that would remain even if the symptom were somehow solved.
• An end to the occupation will create a
power vacuum that will be filled, as all power vacuums in the region have been,
not by the forces of democracy and modernity, which in our region range from
weak to negligible, but by the powerful and ruthless, by the extremists
• People observing this conflict from
afar have been led to believe that Israel faces a simple choice between occupation
and peace. That choice is fiction.
• The Palestinian choice, it is said, is
between Israeli occupation and an independent democracy. That choice, too, is
• The only group of people subject to a
systematic boycott at present in the Western world is Jews, appearing now under
the convenient euphemism “Israelis.”
• The only country that has its own
“apartheid week” on campuses is the Jewish country.
• No one cares that, “The human costs of
the Middle Eastern adventures of America and Britain in this century have been far higher,
and far harder to explain, than anything Israel has ever done. They have involved
occupations and the violence they unleashed continues.”
• The fashionable disgust for Israel among many in the West is not liberal
but is selective, disproportionate and discriminatory
• The cult’s priesthood can be found
among the activists, NGO experts and ideological journalists, who have turned
coverage of this conflict into a catalogue of Jewish moral failings,
• Boycotts of Israel, and only of Israel, which are one of the cult’s most
important practices, have significant support in the press, including among
• Sympathy for Israel’s predicament is highly unpopular in the
relevant social circles, and is something to be avoided by anyone wishing to be
invited to the right dinner parties, or to be promoted.
• The events in Gaza this summer were portrayed not as a
complicated war, but as a massacre of innocents. (Aggression of Hamas was down-graded or omitted. Systematic
terrorizing of Jews prior the conflict is ignored)
• The Jew is the perennial scapegoat for
all that is wrong with the world.
• As the journalist Charles Maurras wrote, approvingly, in 1911: “Everything seems
impossible, or frighteningly difficult, without the providential arrival of
anti-Semitism, through which all things fall into place and are simplified.”
• The global villain, as portrayed in
newspapers and on TV, is none other than the Jewish soldier or the Jewish
settler. They are the heirs to the Jewish banker or Jewish commissar of the
