Washington condemned a planned Israeli move to appropriate West Bank land near Jericho, saying the action called into question Jerusalem’s commitment to a two-state solution. (Which nobody believes is possible or cares about!)
The Israeli Ministry of Defence said earlier that officials approved the expropriation of some 370 acres agricultural land in Judea, near the PA controlled city of Jericho.
“We strongly oppose any steps that could accelerate settlement expansion and we believe they’re fundamentally incompatible with a two-state solution and call into question frankly the Israeli government’s commitment to a two-state solution,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
The area, part of which has been worked in recent years by Israeli farmers, is situated in the Jordan Valley. Israel has previously used an 1858 Ottoman law stating that land which lies fallow for several years could revert to government property as the legal basis for such moves.
The procedure was approved by Israeli government officials and was to receive final approval in the coming weeks, according to the report.
Israeli anti-settlement group Peace Now (self-hating leftist Jewish traitors) said it is Israel’s largest land expropriation in Judea and Samaria since 2014. “The government’s decision is another step on the way to destroy the possibility for a two state solution,” Peace Now said in a statement. (Annexation is the Step in the Right Direction! It is Jewish land and Israel must not be apologetic for its desire to reunite Eretz-Israel – all Jewish ancestral land! The US governments, not just Obama’s one, must be ashamed by their consistent anti-Israel policy and gutless appeasement of Islamic enemies, which is totally contradictory to the support and close affiliation of US voters with the Jewish state, which is the best friend of the United States!)

As it is written in Torah, Israel will be the king of all nations. Israel has always been a front-line defence of the West against Islamic/Arab expansion! Therefore, the only way to stop expansion of Islam to the West, as well as destruction of the democracy and our liberal values, is for Israel set its Jewish national goal to reunite Eretz-Israel - the Promised Land as it was clearly defined in the Torah or, at least, how it was legally designated to the Jewish State by the League of Nations! In the process, Arab/Muslim enemies will be defeated militarily and morally. This will stumble their advance on the West!
About a month ago a group of ugly leftist Jewish Israelis signed a petition calling on Europe to boost anti-Israel steps. The petition is asking the EU to enhance steps such as product labelling, because these are vital to creating a split between the Jewish settlers of Judea and Samaria and the rest of Israel. (After losing political ground in Israel, self-hating traitors of the Left are looking for European anti-Semites’ support!)
During a meeting, European Parliament President Martin Schulz said “the relations between Israel and Germany are good, in contrast to the relations between Israel and Sweden. The growing anti-Semitism should concern all of Europe. I oppose labelling products from the territories (Judea and Samaria). It will mainly hurt the Palestinians, who make an honest living there.”
The US does not oppose the European Union's decision to label products coming from Jewish businesses in Judea and Samaria. "We do not view labelling the origin of products as being from the settlements a boycott of Israel. We also do not believe that labelling the origin of products is equivalent to a boycott," State Department Spokesman John Kirby said.
A new natural gas reservoir has been discovered off the coast of Israel, about the same size as the Tamar gas field. The Tamar gas field was discovered in January 2009, also in the Mediterranean Sea off the Israeli coastline. The field is located in Israel’s exclusive economic zone. (Is that why Saudi Arabia keeps the price of gas and oil so low?)
Will New Sanctions Work?
The US slaps new sanctions linked to Iran ballistic missile program. Fresh from implementation of the nuclear deal, Washington targets 11 firms and individuals in Iran, UAE and China who helped send material to Tehran for banned weapons.
Israel Police arrested second radical left-wing activist - a week after another B’Tselem activist was detained at Ben-Gurion International Airport, trying to flee the country, who turned in to the PA Arabs who chose to sell land to Jews, leading to them being tortured and murdered.
Listing terrorist attacks in Israel along with attacks by the Islamic State in France, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said they showed “we are in a world war.” “There are more and more terrorist attacks all over the world. In France, Burkina Faso, in Jakarta, in Israel, it keeps happening and it shows we need to learn to live with it,” Valls said. (How about STOPPING it!)
Most of the people who voted for the Zionist Union (Labor, Hatnua) and Meretz would not encourage French Jews to immigrate to Israel. The respondents were asked – "Would you recommend to a close friend or relative in France, who is well-off as far as status is concerned, to make Aliyah to Israel?" Most of the people who vote for semi-Zionist parties responded affirmatively. A total of 64.5% of Jewish Home voters said "definitely yes" or "yes, I think so," as did a total of 57% of Likud voters. Among Meretz voters, only 17% would have encouraged the
Another “KING JEW” is BARKING at Israel,
US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro undiplomatically criticized Israel, serving well his anti-Semitic masters, alleging Israel had two standards of law in the territory, one for Israelis and one another for Palestinians. He has not used the same vigour to criticize Arabs and the daily terror they have been unleashing on Jews or PA’s ‘two standards’ – providing a conducive ‘working environment’ to terrorists! He also questioned Israel’s vision and intention towards the peace process. The intention of the PA to destroy Israel he has not questioned!
Third World Countries Utilize Israeli Ingenuity to Produce Water from Thin Air. A lack of water on the battlefield is not something that soldiers can afford. Aware of this fact, Arye Kohavi, a former company commander in the IDF Special Forces, set about creating technology which would ensure that soldiers are never short of clean water and that the water supply is never delayed.
El Salvador is not happy with Israel’s decision to close down its embassy as part of a decision to eliminate five embassies altogether as a belt-tightening measure. El Salvador is considering a retaliatory step - moving its embassy from Herzliya Pituach to PA controlled Ramallah. (If El Salvador really wanted to keep its Israeli embassy, it would offer to move its embassy to capital of Israel, Jerusalem!)
Last Friday morning police and army evicted 20 Jewish families from homes they claim to have purchased legally, Bennett’s party issued a statement saying: “In the midst of the terror wave, the defense minister acted with determination, obtuseness, and without compromise to kick Jews from their homes… Let the defense minister apply the same zeal and determination to taking care of the Arab terror and illegal construction in terrorist settlements. It would have been possible to examine the purchase documents without throwing Jews from their homes.”
Quote of the Week:
“On one hand a Leader needs the People to be conducive to listening (Sefat Emet) and on the other hand a Leader must assume the role of a Leader (Rabbi Alpert). He must be creative and innovative. He must rise to the occasion and rise to the challenge. G-d did not want a Leader who simply followed orders. He wanted a Leader who could think on his feet and figure things out, solve problems and deal with the day to day.” – Joseph Frager – Unfortunately, Jewish people have not had such leadership for a long time, in Israel and Diaspora!
The Bleak Future of Europe
by Alexis Jemima (FaceBook posting)
Someone asked what Europe is going to do about the violent onslaught of its Muslim invaders. Here's my prediction:
Europe is going to lie down and play dead. Some will protest, of course; a handful forcefully; but these will be suppressed by the surrendering majority. Soon the holdout Europeans will be outvoted, between liberal natives and the incoming flood and reproductive explosion of immigrants. This means that their governments themselves will be hostile to resistance to the Islamic Conquest.
Increasing numbers of European women will find it necessary or expedient to be covered in the veil while out in public; and soon this will be a necessity for all women simply for safety. At first a trickle, and soon a flood, will choose to convert to Islam and marry Muslim men, who will be seen as having the most prestige, connections, influence, and soon wealth and power.
Power and wealth have long been known to be the greatest aphrodisiacs for women. White European men, meanwhile, will seem so... yesterday.
...Pretty soon, if you want to get a girl, you will have to become Muslim. Women are simply not attracted to the conquered, the has-beens, and the losing side.
Older European men with ambition for a good life for themselves and their families will also find their success much enhanced if they convert to Islam.., putting wives and daughters in burqas and keeping them at home...
Submission will seem a small enough price to pay, for most. After all, few Europeans take Christianity seriously any longer; and no one wants to sacrifice his life or success for abstract social principles like 'multiculturalism' or 'feminism' or 'gay rights'... especially when feeling hard pressed to be safe on the streets or put food on the table.
So that will be the end of Europe. Human rights, social justice, basic freedoms will become distant memories; and with the loss of the structures that keep healthy societies running--structures it took Western civilization some 2000 years to develop and establish--innovation and prosperity will follow down the tubes.
This is how it has happened throughout history. Remember that less than 1500 years ago, Islam did not exist, and Egypt was a major center of Christianity. Byzantium--now known as Turkey--was the capital of the Eastern Church. ALL of the Middle East was part of the vast and powerful Christian empire. Further east, what we now know as Iran and Afghanistan, were mainly Zoroastrian and Buddhist. The greatest civilizations and religions of their day were conquered by Islam, and few even remember that all these Islamic countries around the world, with their millions and millions of Muslims, were wrested from more advanced civilizations with kinder, gentler ideologies. They, like today's blind-sighted Europeans, were sure 'it couldn't happen here'.
What will Islamic Europe look like? Poor, backwards, regressive, violent, dirty, with widespread corruption; women owned and subordinate...
A political culture of deceit, in-fighting, backstabbing, and corruption... violent upheavals for power, and sporadic bloody conflicts between factions and sects. Want to see the future of Europe? Take a look at any Islamic country.
