The US is Dangerous Obstacle for Israel.

According to a report in World Tribune, an Israeli source familiar with the US’ intelligence assessment said that "Obama wants to make friends with our worst enemies and [those who were] until now the worst enemies of the United States. Under this policy,” the source added, “we are more than irrelevant. We have become an obstacle.” The U.S. Administration would reject Israel’s intelligence opinions on Iran and Syria while advancing the Obama plan to reconcile with the two states, although both were listed as state sponsors of terrorism by the U.S. State Department. (For too long over reliance on the United States has kept Israel from achieving freedom from Islamic terror, prosperity and self-respect!)

To Hell with Israel, Let’s Make Money and Play Games.

1) For the sake of dialogue and cooperation, Washington is ceding Tehran the chance to feed its natural gas into the Nabucco pipeline project (from the Caspian to the EU via Turkey).

2) Obama's administration is planing to ask Tehran to permit the passage to Afghanistan of fresh US troops, weapons and supplies across Iranian territory. DEBKA-Net-Weekly (For the sake of gas and the futile war in Afghanistan, the US is prepared to allow a nuclear Iran. Almost ten billion dollars have been wasted already on Pakistan and more on the war in Afghanistan. This move will give them the excuse to spend more billions on missile defence projects.)

Why Must Israel Talk to Syria? Israel must sit down and talk with Syria to resolve differences and work for peace, the U.S. State Department said in response to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s recent statements that the Israeli government cannot sit down with a government that backs Iran, Hizbullah and Hamas. (Do not preach to Israel about peace! Does Syria to want resolve differences and work for peace?)

Please Ask, What would Happened if it was Israel? Sri Lanka has admitted its air force bombed a safe haven established for up to 150,000 civilians fleeing fighting between the army and the Tamil Tigers. According to the United Nations unofficial figures 6,432 civilians have been killed and 13,946 wounded in fighting in Sri Lanka since January 20. The figures were not made public by the UN, but were circulated among foreign embassies in Colombo.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Diversity is the main tool of economic survival. Israel must use political diversity for political survival and reduction of unfair international political pressure. Three economic, political and military super powers (Russia, China and India) will benefit enormously from Israel’s economic, scientific and military expertise. It will end over-reliance on the US. We must remember that the main reason why the United States supported the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 was the fear of having a Soviet platzdarm in the Middle East!

Independence Day or Catastrophe. Israeli Arabs, Mohammed Barakeh chairman of the Hadash Party and a member of the Knesset said: “Their (Jews) Independence Day is our (fake Palestinians) Nakba, catastrophe”. (In 1948 they tried to make the creation of the new Jewish state into another Jewish catastrophe, but failed! It is time to revoke the citizenship of this traitorous Fifth column and let them leave the Jewish land.)

Afghanistan on Its Way to Democracy? A new Afghan law, which reportedly was never debated in parliament, makes it legal for a man to rape his wife should she refuse to have sex with him. One of the articles of this law has a provision that a woman cannot leave her home without her husband’s permission. (When will the thick-sculled analysts in the West realise that it is a fantasy or delusion to expect development of a democracy in a Muslim country?)

Is Turkey a friend or Islamic steppingstone into Europe? Turkey, the member of the NATO who disallowed the US entry into Iraq, has made a decision to hold military manoeuvres with Syria and intends to sign a letter of intent for Turkish-Syrian cooperation in the defence industry. (This will disclose military secrets of Israel and NATO to the enemies, Syria and Iran!)

Time for Israel to Change Direction. PA president Mahmud Abbas rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's demand to recognise Israel as a Jewish state: "You can call yourselves as you like, but I don't accept it and I say so publicly." (But the PA ‘must’ be a Palestinian state and 250,000 Jews must be removed from Judea and Samaria, as was done in Gaza? Enemies hope to bring more Arabs to Israel and change its demography, effectively destroying Jewish state! That is why Abbas rejected Netanyahu's demand.)

Quote of the Week:

“Israeli strategy is all too often constructed, if not dictated, by American foreign policy and in particular, (pressure from) the American President. How then could American Jews risk the survival of the State of Israel on a man who they knew befriended and listened to an anti-Semitic pastor for 20 years, surrounded himself with anti-Semitic friends and advisors, promised to unconditionally reach out to Israel's (and America's) enemies, and flip flopped on the status of Jerusalem?” - Lauri B. Regan, an attorney.

Anti-Semitism in Genetics. Researcher Gregory Cochran and anthropologist Henry Harpending claim that deadly genetic diseases prominent amongst European Jews are linked to higher IQ (average from 108 to 115). However, the theory has its detractors. Neil Risch, director of the Institute for Human Genetics at UC San Francisco asked: “Do they have genetic theories about why Latinos and African Americans perform worse academically?” (There would be an outcry of “racists” if they did so. But even Jewish cleverness must be due to ‘disease’, so no outcry!)

Joseph Tomb Vandalized. Swastikas and other anti-Semitic vandalism were found with a boot stamping on one wall, as the ultimate insult in the Arab world. The tomb, which according to the Oslo Accords is under Israeli control, is surrounded by territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority. On Wednesday night, over 500 visitors were transported into the area in bullet-proof vehicles and under heavy IDF protection. (This is result of ‘the Peace process’ in action. Theoretically, Joseph’s Tomb is also a Muslim holy place. But Arabs do not care about Jewish Bible heritage and systematically desecrate Jewish and Christian places of worship!)

Spiritual or Political Bigot, or Both? Plans for the Pope's visit are becoming more political. The Latin patriarch of Jerusalem said he will preach to Arabs claiming "right of return."

Performance-based Agreement without Performance!

The following is a performance-based and goal-driven roadmap, with clear phases, timelines, target dates, and benchmarks aiming at progress through reciprocal steps by the two parties in the political, security, economic, humanitarian, and institution-building fields, under the auspices of the Quartet.

Phase I: Ending terror and violence, normalising Palestinian life, and building Palestinian institutions (present to May 2003)

In Phase I, the Palestinians immediately undertake an unconditional cessation of violence according to the steps outlined below; such action should be accompanied by supportive measures undertaken by Israel. (The PA’s groups, including Fatah, have never stopped terror acts against Israel!)

Palestinians undertake comprehensive political reform in preparation for statehood, including drafting a Palestinian constitution, and free, fair and open elections upon the basis of those measures. (Worked only partially for a short time)

Israel takes all necessary steps to help normalise Palestinian life. (Israel is unable to due to the continuation of the PA’s terror)

Israel withdraws from Palestinian areas occupied from September 28, 2000 and the two sides restore the status quo that existed at that time, as security performance and co-operation progress. (Israel withdrew and gave the PA an opportunity to self-govern. But security co-operation has been continuously undermined by PA terror attacks.)

Israel also freezes all settlement activity, consistent with the Mitchell report. (Building of settlements was stopped for a while but has been resumed, as the PA has not fulfilled any of its undertakings!)

Security:

- Palestinians declare an unequivocal end to violence and terrorism and undertake visible efforts on the ground to arrest, disrupt, and restrain individuals and groups conducting and planning violent attacks on Israelis anywhere. (Fatah, Hamas and other PLO/PA members never stopped their involvement in terror attacks against Israel.)

- Rebuilt and refocused Palestinian Authority security apparatus begins sustained, targeted, and effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantlement of terrorist capabilities and infrastructure. This includes commencing confiscation of illegal weapons and consolidation of security authority, free of association with terror and corruption. (Members of the PA security apparatus are part of the terror network and their salary is paid by Western countries!)

- Arab states cut off public and private funding and all other forms of support for groups supporting and engaging in violence and terror. (When halal/kosher pigs fly!)

Phase III: Permanent status agreement and end of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (2004-2005) (The deadline of the agreement expired a long time ago. Old ways of international anti-Israel hypocrisy do not work – a new approach is needed!)

Progress into Phase III, based on consensus judgment of Quartet, and taking into account actions of both parties and Quartet monitoring. (And the actions – or lack of them – speak out loud!)

Phase III objectives are consolidation of reform and stabilisation of Palestinian institutions, sustained, effective Palestinian security performance, and Israeli-Palestinian negotiations aimed at a permanent status agreement in 2005. (There is nothing actually to consolidate. All other subsequent agreements did not take into account the violations of the Roadmap agreement by the PA and put unfair pressure on Israel to agree to the Annapolis Accord’s two-state-solution, which is not ratified by either Israel or the PA, therefore it is not legally binding!)
