Most Bitter Western Enemy of Israel

by Benny Toker, Ari Yashar

The harsh criticism flung by US President Barack Obama's administration against Israel this week for a building project in Jerusalem is only a sign of things to come, according to Attorney Yoram Sheftel.

The controversy came over a building project of 2,610 housing units in Givat Hamatos, a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem, which was in the works since 2012, and which Netanyahu accused far-left group Peace Now of reporting precisely now so as to scuttle his meeting with Obama...

Following suit after the White House, France and the European Union (EU) also issued condemnation and threats against Israel for the construction project in Israel's capital.

In addition to the building project, America also condemned Israel for the legal purchase of apartment by dozens of Jewish families, who moved into eleven apartments in the Shiloach neighborhood (known as Silwan by local Arabs) in Jerusalem on Monday night.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest sparked rage on Wednesday by condemning that legal move as an "occupation."

In Russia Do What the Russians Do!

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia: In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture.

We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

The United States cancelled flights to Israel because of one rocket from Gaza hit near Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, but is still providing flight connections to the Ebola-stricken West Africa. The United States had asked Israel to send help to hot-zones in Africa, which Israel refused to. At the same time the US refuses even recognise the role Israel plays, by providing valuable intelligence on ISISL in Syria and airspace for allies’ planes, in the fight against the Islamic State organisation. Enough with the hypocrisy and anti-Semitic bigotry!

Why US Defend UNRWA's Artificial ‘Refugee’

The US State Department has chosen to act as UNRWA’s patron and the protector of its mission. UNRWA, the United Nations agency that manages the Palestinian refugee issue, follows rules that contradict United States law and policy, and its practices result in perpetuating and multiplying the refugee problem rather than resolving it. (“With a friend like this who needs an enemy!”)

Hamas Getting ready for the Next War

Just a little over a month after the November 26 ceasefire with Israel that ended Hamas's terror war and the 50-day Operation Protective Edge, terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket into the sea. The "test" indicates that industry is kicking back into life even as Hamas approaches renewed Cairo truce talks with Israel in the last week of October. Hamas has also received large quantities of rockets from Iran, among other suppliers.

Reprimand is not Enough for Bigots!

Sweden's ambassador to Israel has been summoned for a reprimand meeting on Monday at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, after Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven announced his intention to recognize Palestine. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman "If the Swedish prime minister's inauguration speech is concerned with the situation in the Middle East, he would be better off focusing on the urgent problems in the area, like the daily mass killings in Syria, Iraq, and other places in the region."

Bigot's Clarification

Sweden has effectively retracted an earlier statement by new prime minister Stefan Lofven, who announced that his country would recognize the “state of Palestine,” arousing ire in Israel and disapproval in the United States. (As a part of their anti-Israel campaign, bigots make ‘loud’ anti-Israel declarations first and quietly retract them later!)

‘Peace-Loving’ Hamas

Hamas Political Bureau member Mahmoud Al-Zahar stated that Hamas wants to build an Islamic state in all of Palestine, meaning it would replace Israel. Al-Zahar further said that if Hamas had a military foothold in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) as it does in the Gaza Strip it would be able to destroy Israel.

When the Government Incoherent!

After Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon rejected (snubbed) a special request by the US and UN to send IDF field hospitals to Ebola hit Liberia and Sierra Leone, the Foreign Ministry announced its intention to send three mobile emergency clinics to areas in West Africa. (Arab countries, with all their oil wealth, are not in any rush to participate in any international relief program. They are only performing well in the terror-support area!)

'Peaceful' Islamic Blackmail

Hamas "political wing" official Muhammad Nazal announced his terrorist organization is preparing for the start of a channel of negotiations with Israel, meant to release hundreds of terrorists in exchange for the bodies of fallen IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul hy"d.

Biden Apologised for Telling the Truth

The United Arab Emirates says US Vice President Joe Biden has apologised to the Abu Dhabi crown prince for "any implications" in remarks he made that the UAE had supported ISIL fighters in Syria. Phone call by US vice president to Abu Dhabi crown prince comes a day after he offered an apology to Turkey's president. Biden, who is known for his occasional verbal gaffes, angered US allies when he suggested in a speech at Harvard University that Turkey, Qatar and the UAE had extended "billions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons" to Sunni fighters. (There have been many ‘gaffes’ made against Israel by the US officials, but we never heard an apology!)

Hypocritical Israeli ‘Peaceniks’

As co-founder of the radical leftist movement, Tzali Reshef presents himself to the Israeli public as someone passionately opposed to building new Jewish neighborhoods or communities - or any construction in those that exist, including expansion - in areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority, but his company invests in building up the same areas in Jerusalem.

Turkey Killing Kurds, Helps ISIL

At least 21 people have been killed in riots across Turkey, the deadliest street unrest in years, after the Kurdish minority rose up in fury at the government's refusal to protect a besieged Syrian town from Islamic State (IS) militants. Earlier, Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, had warned that Kobane was about to fall into the hands of ISIL. Clashes also erupted in the capital Ankara and in the country's biggest city, Istanbul, where almost 100 people were detained and 30 people were injured. (If Israel killed so many Arab-Israelis, there would be an ‘extraordinary’ meeting of the UN Security Council by now! Turkey prevents Kurdish fighters from joining defense of Kobane, buys oil from ISIL and does not allow allies use its ground military bases for attack on ISIL. When will NATO expel this Islamic enemy?)

No an 'Idol' Hate for Israel

The most popular show in the Arab world ignited an uproar throughout the region when it displayed a map depicting the home country of two of its contestants as Israel. The singers on the “Arab Idol” show were Arab citizens of Israel who live in Galilee, but the Saudi MBC-TV network was forced to apologize to hundreds millions of viewers for acknowledging the existence of the Jewish state and not identifying the contestants’ homeland as “Palestine.”

Quote of the Week:

“We have issues with Syria, an issue based on a principle. But let me say it clearly: The Turkish government has never cooperated with Israel against any Muslim country, and it never will.” - Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkish Foreign Minister - Turkey did not cooperate with a coalition during operation “Desert Storm” in Iraq and now in the war against ISIL! When will NATO get rid of this of Islamic evil?

Abbas will Never Accept the Existence of Israel

by Hezki Ezra, Tova Dvorin

(There is no difference in the attitude of Fatah and the Hamas leadership - it is destruction of Israel! Nothing has changed since the departure of ‘infamous Yasser’. The Arab states have the same aim; they just have been working behind the scenes and, at the moment they are threatened by and pre-occupied with the Islamic State, but not for long!)

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon hit back at Mahmoud Abbas, after Abbas gave an incitement-laced speech at the UN General Assembly blaming Israel for "war crimes" and "genocide" during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. "Through his speech at the UN, Mahmoud Abbas proves for the umpteenth time: this is not a leader who wants peace and the advancement of his people's lives, but a person who distributes lies, incitement, and hate speech against Israel," Ya'alon stated Saturday. "Mahmoud Abbas is not a man of peace, and is not really interested in an agreement with Israel, which means recognition of the Jewish national homeland."

"Time after time, Mahmoud Abbas goes on to deceive the international community, to throw at Israel false and racist accusations out of the hope that threats, pressure, and lies will scare us and make us acquiesce (to his demands)," Ya'alon continued.

Ya'alon implied that Abbas's speech was particularly grave, and may have jettisoned future plans to renew peace talks. 

"He has no partner for a political agreement - which is essential to end the conflict - and we will therefore not compromise the security of Israeli citizens," Ya'alon said, referencing plans to make a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria. "In every situation, we are responsible for our own destiny and our own security, and we will be in the future."
