May the spirit of the Maccabees yet again return to Israel and
help us defeat and remove our enemies from Jewish land.

Endless amounts of time and millions of dollars are wasted on rebuking false accusations and deliberate distortions of the facts of history as well as the current ‘reality’ invented by Arabs, made by traditional anti-Semites, self-hating Jews and all sorts of sophisticated and primitive xenophobes. Uncountable numbers of petitions have been in circulation to counteract statements made by politicians in the United Nations, parliaments around the world and/or on the front page of the papers and TV shows. The present flavour of the month that attracts so much Jewish enthusiasm are calls for boycotts of Israeli produced goods, investment in Israel and scientific cooperation. I only wish that Jews would show the same level of enthusiasm in support of our Zionist ideals!
At the same time, the Internet has provided an ideal meeting place for traditional, brainless anti-Semites and mentally disturbed, xenophobic attention seekers. They feed and thrive on the attention that they provoke from people who are justifiably disgusted with their uncontrolled activities on the Net. Therefore if you really want to hurt them, the only way to deal with them is to stop dignifying their outrageous anti-Israel behaviour with any response and deprive them of any attention.
The Internet is becoming the major wasteful vent of people’s energy where they express themselves with no results – just like a Japanese stress-relief dummy! We must not confuse activities with accomplishments! Only by focusing on the Jewish National goal, the establishment of Eretz-Israel on Jewish ancestral land, we will make it reality!
Therefore, the main question we have to ask is: Do we really have to fight all of those idiots, including the Presidents and the Prime ministers, and their politically or psychologically distorted accusations? The record of the previous efforts made by Israel and Jewish communities has proved that we must not waste our time and resources on them. For example, a hundred years ago in Europe, in spite of explicit contrary statements in the Torah about the use of blood, Jews were accused of using blood of Christian children in preparation of Matza. Jewish communities had won several court cases but it did not convince our enemies and the idea is still subscribed to by some Christians and is being propagated in Muslim countries as well.
The change of world opinion and respect toward Israel and Jews was achieved several times after the victories of the Independence war, the Six Day war and the Yom Kippur war - when Israel was able to affirm itself as a strong, sovereign and equal nation. Unfortunately it did not last long and the governments of Israel were unable or unwilling to use the political momentum created by those victories, largely due to the galut (slave) mentality Jews developed during life in hostile and anti-Semitic environments, and the tradition of international anti-Semitism prevailed again.
Israel must realize that Jews do not have many friends who would be interested in helping Israel to reach the Jewish national goal. We must stop wasting time, resources and energy on rebuking our enemies. It is a distraction! Although it makes people feel good, it does not produce long lasting results. We must focus on our goals and strategies in order to achieve them. Anything else is just another useless activity, which takes us further from the Permanent Peace, even if it feels important and good at times.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Allied forces killed over 300 civilians in Afghanistan just during the first 9 months of this year. There is no ‘Goldstein’ report and no condemnation made by the bigots of the UN General Assembly.
Pointless Freeze. 1) Though Israel has stopped all construction in Judea and Samaria, top PLO official Ahmed Qureia has told the European Union envoy to the Middle East that there is no reason to return to negotiating table. 2) Yesha Council resolves: Freeze on Jewish construction is a shameful decision that contrasts with the historic process of the Return to Zion. 3) "We will resume building at the end of the freeze" Netanyahu pledged to settlers in the West Bank. 4) 72% Believe Building Freeze Due to US Pressure and felt the freeze would not have an effect on the resumption of diplomatic talks. (Must Israel help Obama create the fake perception of success while the current US administration has no respect for Jewish national integrity?)
Another Six Months of Insincerity. President Barack Obama is delaying moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. A 1995 U.S. law recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered that the embassy be relocated there. But the law also permits the president to delay the move for six-month periods. (The US, like most of ‘Jew-lovers’, does not keep its promises given to Israel. Why must Israel care about the opinion of Jew-hating international filth?)
Truth is Out - “Palestinian” Nation Does not Exist! The Zionist Freedom Alliance of California has been circulating a video on the internet exposing former Arab Member of Knesset Azmi Bishara, who fled the country in 2007, denying the existence of a “Palestinian” nation. People should really investigate the basic claims of the Middle East conflict before expressing strong opinions. (It is time for Jews to realize and respect our own rights and fight for them!)
Line Must be Drawn. Students and future IDF soldiers have written a letter to PM Netanyahu opposed to the prisoner exchange for soldier Gilad Shalit: ''In spite of the pain, we believe that a state that loves life must not give in to terrorists and must not bow to emotional blackmail'' (A state must not negotiate with terrorists! To put an end this bizarre situation, Israel has only one option – release Jewish land, Gaza, from its terrorist enemy population.)
Quote of the Week: "During the Holocaust, all the nations of the world (untruly) claimed they did not know about the death camps and today they all know and hear that Iran on one hand and Hamas on the other wants to destroy us, if they all know, why is the world so silent?" - Meir Rosen, former Israeli ambassador to the United States and France. - They are not silent now! The UN, the US and the EU, as well as other ‘small’ oil hungry bigots, have been passionately and actively supporting Islamic attempts to destroy Israel!
Arabs Throw Stones at Fire-fighters. Fire-fighters responding to an alarm in Shuafat in Jerusalem were pelted by rocks thrown by Arabs. The fires were set by warring gangs in the area; one Arab was killed in the massive gang fight, involving hundreds of Arabs. Two apartments and a gas station were on fire. (They may kill each other if they must - like in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan – but please remove this hateful trash from Jewish land)
European Funding of anti-Zionist NGOs in Israel. 16 Israeli NGOs received a total of about $8 million, in European funding between the years 2006 and 2009: B'Tselem, HaMoked and Yesh Din each received about $1 million, B'Tselem about $3 million. (I am still ‘waiting’ for their support of my publication :)
Hypocricy of the Headlines.
"Abbas: Netanyahu chose occupation over peace" – Haaretz.com – This idiotic headline was invented by an Israeli leftist publication and has been propagated all over the world by willing idiots. The headline has nothing to do with the context of the article, where Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez charged that Israel aims to “terminate the Palestinian people”. Why do those self-hating thugs in Haaretz not write a headline: “Abbas has never abandoned terrorism and has only the destruction of Israel in mind”?
We Must Let Them all Go. Last year set an all-time record for the number of Arab residents of East Jerusalem who were stripped of residency rights by the Interior Ministry. Altogether, the ministry revoked the residency of 4,577 East Jerusalemites in 2008. An interior ministry said an investigation uncovered thousands of people listed as East Jerusalem residents but were no longer living in Israel. 250,000 Arab residents of East Jerusalem have the same legal status as people who immigrated to Israel legally but are not entitled to citizenship under the Law of Return.
Ugly Silence Still Persists!
Once again, the real news in France is conveniently not being reported as it should. To give you an idea of what's going on in that country where there are now between 5 and 6 million Muslims and about 600,000 Jews, here is an E-mail that came from a Jew living in France.
Nowhere have the flames of anti-Semitism burned more furiously than in France. In Lyon, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on fire. In Montpellier, the Jewish religious center was firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourgand Marseilles; so was a Jewish school in Creteil - all recently. A Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with Molotov cocktails and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus, in Paris, the words 'Dirty Jew' were painted.
In Bondy, 15 men beat up members of a Jewish football team with ticks and metal bars. The bus that takes Jewish children to school in ubervilliers has been attacked three times in the last 14 months.
According to the Police, metropolitan Paris has seen 10 to 12 anti-Jewish incidents PER DAY in the past 30 days. Walls in Jewish neighborhoods have been defaced with slogans proclaiming 'Jews to the gas chambers' and 'Death to the Jews.' A gunman opened fire on a kosher butcher's shop (and, of course, the butcher) inToulouse, France. A Jewish couple in their 20's were beaten up by five men in Villeurbanne, Fran ce (the woman was pregnant). A Jewish school was broken into and vandalized in Sarcelles, France. This was just in the past week." (Similar letters of outcry about abuse and violence against Jews could easily be written from Britain, Russia, Ukraine or Australia! The press has been deliberately ignoring or minimising the ugliness of these attacks. Police and the justice system are unwilling to prosecute Islamic perpetrators and are even apologetic to the Muslim community while investigating terror related cases.)
