The Two State Concept is Wrong

by David Ha'ivri

This might come as a surprise to some, but many Israelis do not believe that establishing a Palestinian state is the right thing to do… Some Israeli leaders feel that they can only depend on the Palestinians for one thing - their dedication to getting in the way of any permanent resolution. The truth is that in that one area, they do have a very impressive track record. 

PA is teaching hate in their schools. The PA chairman insists that Jews will not be allowed to live in the Palestinian state in his vision…

For the past 20 years, the international community has been pouring billions of dollars into the Palestinian Authority. A great part of these massive international funds found their way into the pockets of PLO functionaries who became wealthy as a result. Part of these funds contributed to monthly pensions that the PA pays convicted terrorists in Israeli jails…

These points only show the tip of the iceberg of corruption and failure springing from the Oslo concept of establishing a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River. The idea is not going to lead the area to peace and prosperity, and so far it has only caused more misery.  It is time to acknowledge that the Oslo path was wrong the route to choose. Other alternatives must be considered... (There are other options, no one is interested to even look at them!)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

International anti-Israel propaganda is conducted on many levels. One of them is subliminal brainwashing of the general public. Have you noticed that most news programs and travel guides about Israel begin with showing a picture of the Al-Aqsa Mosque? This technique is called “priming” and it is used to delegitimise the Jewish claim to our ancestral land. It is like Jews praying at the Western Wall do not exist!

Iran Nuclear Program Could be Destroyed Easily

The international community must make it clear to Iran that it has only two options: end its nuclear program voluntarily, or “see it destroyed with brute force,” said Minister of Strategic Affairs Yuval Steinitz adding that destroying the nuclear program would take “a few hours of airstrikes, no more.” Israeli leaders have warned the world against being convinced by Rouhani’s public statements. “Of course he wants more talks. He wants to talk and talk and talk. And while everybody is busy talking to him, he’ll be busy enriching uranium,” warned Prime Minister Binyamin during a meeting with US lawmakers. “This isn't a secret. The new Iranian president boasts that it is his strategy.” (It can be done and there is no need for ground troops!)

Turkey is not a Western Ally

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's claimed that Israel had a role in toppling ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. Egypt, however, furiously rejected Erdogan's accusation stating it had "no basis in fact." White House spokesman Josh Earnest also condemned Erdogan by saying the comments were "offensive and unsubstantiated and wrong." (It must be expelled from NATO!)

UN: Rare but Empty Admission of Bias Against Israel

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem on Friday afternoon, and admitted that his organization was biased against Israel. Addressing the attitude towards Israel, Ban said that the Jewish state was a UN member and should therefore be treated equally like all other 192 member states. Unfortunately, he added, Israel has been criticized and sometimes discriminated against because of the Mideast conflict. (Ban’s honesty did not last long!) Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, responded sharply to comments made recently by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in which he denied that there was an endemic anti-Israel bias problem at the UN: “Blatant denial is no recipe for change. This bias will continue as long as it is not acknowledged and dealt with at the highest echelons of the UN.” ”It doesn’t take the investigative skills of Agatha Christie to deduce that there’s bias against Israel at the United Nations.”

Collapse Near the Western Wall

An area collapsed near the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. The Al-Aqsa Foundation and Cultural Heritage Organization accused Israel, as it usually does, of paving the way for demolishing the Al-Aqsa Mosque by “building new settlements and digging dozens of tunnels” (not taking responsibility for its own building activities). Arabs continuously accuse Israel of "Judaizing" the Temple Mount, sometimes resorting to ridiculous propaganda. The Waqf has removed every sign of ancient Jewish presence at the site. At the entrance to the Temple Mount, a Waqf sign says, “The Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyard and everything in it is Islamic property.”

Traitor in Charge of Jewish Future!

Israel will make “dramatic decisions” to reach a final peace agreement that will end the conflict with the Palestinians, Israel’s chief negotiator, Tzipi Livni, said while warning that hawks inside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition are making her job more difficult. (Tzipi Livni tells the enemy that she is prepared to sell out her people and country, and trying to soften the Israelis to her betrayal!)

They Hate Israel but Love Jewish Money

20,000 Palestinians working in settlements, survey finds. Survey finds comparatively high unemployment rate in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The survey showed that the unemployment rate in the Gaza Strip was 27.9 percent compared with 16.8% in the West Bank in the second quarter of 2013.

Another Islamic Mad Dog is Barking at Israel

The Turkish Premier, who has a history of anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic remarks, blamed Israel for the events that brought about Morsi’s ouster.

Quote of the Week:

“As far as the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, we have to get to the root cause of the problem and the root cause was and remains the persistent refusal to recognize the Jewish State in any boundary... The conflict preceded the establishment of a single settlement by half a century and when we rooted out all the settlements in Gaza, the attacks continued because of this basic opposition to the Jewish State.” - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told United Nations head Ban Ki-moon - Both of them know it. By negotiating with the PA Israel provides legitimacy to a terrorist entity!

Bad Policy Creates Whistle-blowers!

Captain, USMC

I am back in Afghanistan. There is no mission, no strategy. The Muslims have us pretty well figured out. They ask, ask and ask. Then we give, give and give. The commander who balks at the cycle? He is replaced by someone who will go along. The Afghans are great allies--- so long as we bribe them with goods, services, and money. They turn when we leave. Just recently, an advisor team was ordered away from an Afghan Uniformed Police team in the south because, as higher headquarters claims, they were fully trained and operational independent of ISAF help. Just the other day, the chief of police for that team was caught on our drone assets delivering a Humvee-full of weapons and ammunition to a Taliban member who is targeted for death. Of course we did not drone strike him because, after all, this is what winning looks like.

We work with allied local national linguists. Hazaras, Tajiks, and Pashtuns. Every so often, I have one of these men come to my door and ask to speak privately. They then explain and beg me to not tell anyone that they do not consider themselves Muslim, but have to go along or be killed. They ask me to help them with their visa packages to escape this Islamist hell. I do. I prod these linguists with those questions that would perk the ears of an Islamic supremacist. I have identified some whom I will not trust. But there are others who recognize that Islam is the problem in Afghanistan. One is a secret Christian. They want away from Islam and America is the last place where it is safe to go. For now!

I feel like these guys who have seen what Islam is are the survivors. We need them. They are like the survivors who escaped to America from the Soviet bloc and pled with tears in their eyes for America to not vote for Obama. They know what is coming because they have seen it. I do not think that Islam can be readily defeated through intellect. They are beyond it. Only sheer violence and force can stop them, only liberating those who will be liberated and using the superstition of their religion against them will work. General Pershing understood this 100 years ago. I am afraid America will not really get this until the most extreme circumstance arises.

My time in the Marine Corps is coming to an end. I could stay in the organization as long as I wish, but I feel there is no point. All the talented officers I know are resigning. We can’t bear to stay in and see what is happening. We are a social-experiment over and above the world’s premier war-fighting organization now. This is what America wants. This is what America has voted for twice.

Me and people like me look to get out and blend in with society at large. The consensus is that the time will come when America wants people like us again, but only after this new experimental drive has run its course. It will end how it has to end: in class war, race war, free men vs. statists. Completely predictable! At that time, the blood and sweat and broken hearts pressed from America’s fighting men and women over a decade of counter-insurgency warfare will rise up and be our nation’s salvation.

As always, please keep my identity secret. The system is no longer partial to my kind.
