by Ben - Dror Yemini (Jihad forces cannot be tamed or appeased)
It is bewildering how many believe Hamas can be appeased despite Hezbollah proving that Jihad forces need no excuse for their propagation of destruction; Hezbollah is also world's largest crime organization but Obama chose a conciliatory policy ignoring their drug smuggling, money laundering.
If Israel only eliminated the blockade of the Gaza Strip, there will be neither rockets nor tunnels. The Strip will flourish. There will be no confrontations. This argument, which is prevalent in certain circles, in the world and in Israel, should be examined against the backdrop of Operation Northern Shield.
Well, Israel is not imposing any blockade on Lebanon, which is controlled by Hezbollah. There is no historical conflict with the Lebanese people...
But Lebanon has an Iranian element: Hezbollah. And they are building a network of missiles and tunnels, just like (Hamas) in the south, in the context of their profound hatred for the West, including Israel and the Jews.
Will the Gaza Strip begin to flourish once the blockade is lifted? Will Hamas change its skin?
...It is not about the blockade or a particular conflict, nor is it a border dispute. It is the abhorrent hatred that permeates the Jihad organizations, Sunni and Shiite alike.
...After all, Hezbollah could allow Lebanon to thrive and prosper. But it prefers to invest all its resources in the death industry (as Hamas in Gaza).
...The confrontation will come. And even assuming that Israel will be hit and suffer, and it will be hit, Lebanon will return to the Middle Ages. And despite the obvious outcome, Hezbollah continues.
...Hezbollah is not only an international terrorist organization, it is also an international criminal organization. Much of the organization's income comes from cocaine trade. President Obama, upon his election, adopted a conciliatory policy and declared intention to engage in dialogue and integrate Hezbollah into Lebanese politics. (It was all a deliberate act of appeasing Islamic terrorism and allowing it to flourish!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Unfortunately, too many Jews are only agreed on and ready to fight anti-Semitism only, but when it comes to focusing on the future of Jewish people and Israel, or other important Jewish issues, like assimilation, they do not have much interest to be involved, at best. At the same time, many Jews, due to 'Jewish' Stockholm syndrome or PTSD or/and self-hating tendency are quite vocal and even aggressive anti-Zionists and anti-Orthodox!
Please, read and distribute!
The IDF and the Judea and Samaria Civil Administration sealed an opening in the protective wall near Bet El, which remained open due to a High Court ruling, through which a terrorist infiltrated and attacked, stabbing a soldier, and threw a large rock that hit his head. (The Israeli judicial system is in need of serious clean up from the anti-Zionist and self-hating Jewish idiots, who must be thrown out!)
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed that his government will recognise West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. However, he said Australia's embassy would not move from Tel Aviv, until a peace settlement was achieved. (Does it mean never?) According to Times of Israel, the Australian government approved the move of its embassy, but it will likely be delayed due to the exorbitant price tag of the relocation, estimated at $200 million. (Too many Western countries are gutless and fearful of the 'opinion' of enemies of democracy. That is why Islamism is winning!)
Seven people were wounded, including a 21-year-old pregnant woman, last week in drive-by shooting terror attack at the Ofra junction in Binyamin. Members of nationalist camp demand that Prime Minister Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, fight terrorism. "Another day, another attack. Mr. Prime Minister, until today you still had someone to blame for the helplessness of the security forces. This is it, there are no more excuses..." said MK Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home). (It is pathetic when the leader of the country is unwilling to protect its citizens!)
Sharp escalation in stoning, firebombing terror attacks in Judea & Samaria.
Last Thursday alone, there were more than two dozen terrorist attacks carried out against Israeli drivers on the roads in Judea and Samaria, not including the shooting and ramming attacks that also were perpetrated by Palestinian Authority terrorists. (After Israel agreed to another useless ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza, enemies opened 'the second front' in Judea and Samaria, killing and terrorising Jews! When will government of Israel realise that only by removal of enemy population from the Jewish land will bring ‘quiet’? As it said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”)
The vote in the UN on a resolution condemning Hamas that fell nine votes short of the two-thirds majority needed to be adopted had mixed results in Africa. Only six of Africa’s 54 countries – Rwanda, South Sudan, Malawi, Liberia, Lesotho and Cabo Verde – voted with Israel and the US in support of the resolution, while 10 abstained and another 10 did not vote. The other 28 African states voted against. Nigeria and Zambia voted against an anti-Hamas resolution at the UN, helping to ensure that it would not be adopted. Three days later, the Ghanaian and Nigerian representatives to the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), joined together with representatives from Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zambia and Burkina Faso for a seminar through the Volcani Center in Beit Dagan, Israel’s leading agricultural research organization, to explore new technologies regarding food production, increasing crop yields and food safety. (Where is Israeli government self-respect? Why were the hypocrites allowed in Israel?)
Jewish Contributions to the World
Evelyn Berezin (April 12, 1925 – December 8, 2018) The Bronx-born daughter of Jewish immigrants from Russia founded Redactron Corp in 1969. She was an American computer designer, best known for designing the first computer-driven word processor. She was also responsible for the first computer-controlled systems for airline reservations.
PA President Mahmoud Abbas said the Palestinians will soon dissolve the PA parliament, the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC). Move is seen as bid to undermine Hamas, as it controls a majority of the seats in the PLC, 74 of 132 seats.
European Union nations have agreed to step up the fight against anti-Semitism and boost security to better protect Jewish communities and institutions across the continent. The 28-nation EU's interior ministers unanimously approved an 11-page declaration, recognizing a common definition of anti-Semitism and acknowledging Jewish concerns given the prevalence of attacks in recent years. (For that they must overcome 'Political Correctness' and start dealing with Islamic crime and its hate wave in Europe!)
IDF soldiers on Friday, Dec. 14 demolished the al-‘Amri ‘refugee camp’ four-story building ('poor Palestinians') where the family of the terrorist Islam Yusuf Abu Hamid lived. However, the homes of only 16 terrorists who murdered Israelis have been demolished. This figure is exceptionally low, given the fact that 77 Israelis were killed in terror attacks during that period. (No deportation of families of terrorists from Jewish land, allowing them to receive ‘blood money’ from the PA, which is subsidised by the international anti-Semites!)
Diplomats from European countries blasted a recent Iranian missile test as “inconsistent” with a key UN Security Council resolution, as they struggle to keep the Iran deal intact amid US pressure to get tough on the Islamic regime. Iran test-fired a medium-range ballistic missile on Saturday, which the US said had the capability to strike parts of Europe and the Middle East. (Iran is very much consistent! Germany, France and the UK have been consistently subverting both sanctions against Iran, by supplying the enemy with 'dual-purpose' equipment and material, which is used to develop and build weapons that threatens not just Israel!)
Protesting Israeli feminists cover up the fact that it is mostly Arab men who murder women in Israel. A campaign of radical feminist organizations declared a strike “in protest against violence against women in Israel.” The organizers did not assign much weight to the fact that the bulk of violence against women in Israel is committed by Arabs and illegal migrants from Africa: 50% of the cases of murder of women by a close male relative involved Arabs, who are 21% of the population; 8% are foreigners, including illegal migrants; and 15% involved Ethiopians, many are not Jews, who constitute about 2% of the population; 14% are by immigrants from Russia, mainly non-Jewish. (Hate for anything Jewish and toward the Jewish state among Jewish leftists is a completely idiotic, if not pathological psychiatric syndrome!)
Germany has allocated 54.4 million euros ($62 million) toward new development projects in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The money will help build up local administration, construct schools and help with vocational training. (This will help the PA and Hamas spend millions on rockets, training of terrorists, and financial reward to them and their families!)
Quote of the Week:
"Now that we can finally use this word, I’ll say what everyone in the nation thinks, Left-wing associations funded by foreign and hostile governments, left-wing politicians and the media who always side with the enemy and against the Jewish interest - who care nothing for terror victims, settlers or victims of infiltrators while showing such compassion for every Palestinian rioter hurt on the Gaza border - are traitors! - Yair Netanyahu, the son of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu – Through the history, self-hating Jews always were enemies/traitors of the Jewish people. He really needs to talk to his father, who is getting closer to crossing the traitorous line!
(33% of Europeans know little or nothing of the Holocaust)
Many Europeans don’t know much about the Holocaust, and anti-Semitic beliefs are still fairly widespread among residents of European countries...
More than a quarter of the people polled in Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Poland and Sweden believe Jews have too much influence in business and finance, CNN.com reported
Further, a third of the Europeans surveyed said they knew just a little or nothing at all about the Holocaust, the mass murder of some 6 million Jews by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.
The lack of Holocaust knowledge is striking among young people in France: One out of five between the ages of 18 and 34 said they had never heard of it.
Only 54 percent believe Israel has the right to exist as a Jewish state.
In Austria, the birthplace of Hitler, 12 percent of young people said they had never heard of the Holocaust.
