What about Violence Against Jews?
by Gil Ronen
human rights groups see hypocrisy in the public attacks on Lt. Col. Shalom
Eisner, who used his rifle to strike an anarchist Saturday.
upon the video segments selected by the anarchists is a gift to the rioters and
a stab in the back of IDF soldiers who have to face gangs of criminals or
neo-Nazis," the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel said.
state of Israel's central problem is not the reaction by the Deputy Brigade
Commander after he was attacked," it said, "but the fact that the
legal authorities allow the rioters to run amok and create mayhem
Forum added that the same state that placed large police forces at Ben Gurion
Airport to block an anti-Israel "flytilla" ignores the anarchists who
are already inside Israel, and does not understand that they are violent.
Strook of the Human Rights in Yesha NGO said that "for every video of an
officer's violence toward an anarchist, I can bring ten videos of police who
were no less violent toward Jews, but the disciplinary and legal measures
against them take place at a snail's pace."

wars with clear objectives. Most of the current wars - “On Terror”, Afghanistan, Iraq, as

PA Snubbed Talk Offer
Israel's latest offer for direct
peace talks has been spurned by the PA. A spokesman for PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who also said that Abbas is ready for talks only if
Israel halts settlement construction and accepts its 1967 boundaries as the
basis for negotiations. Netanyahu suggested starting fresh direct talks between
the two sides without any preconditions. It followed an appeal by the Mideast
Quartet - a group made up of the US, the UN, the EU and Russia - to resume talks which
broke down in late 2010. (There is no point talking
to Arab terrorists. Israel needs to
pursue its own Jewish national agenda,
otherwise the Arabs will achieve theirs!)
Ambiguity or Idiot is Talking
Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday his country has
never promised the United States it would hold off from attacking Iran while nuclear talks were taking place.
The comments, in which Barak said that a diplomatic push to reach a compromise
with Iran was a waste of "precious
time," further exposed a rift between Israel and the U.S. over how to deal with Iran and its nuclear program.
In a Spirit of Peace and Co-operation
The governor of Bethlehem, Abdul-Fattah Hamayil, gave orders to enforce the ban and monitor all
agricultural imports. The ban is only the latest in a series of bans on Israeli
goods in PA-administered enclaves. (Israel needs to
impose an embargo of all services to PA. Why not? The USA has done it
Obama’s Secret Dealings with Iran
official sources now suspect that in their secret contacts, the US has granted Iran far-reaching concessions on its nuclear program -
more than Israel would find acceptable. The formal talks in Istanbul and in Baghdad on May 23 are seen as nothing but a device to screen
the real business the US and Iran have already contracted on the quiet. Behind the
show biz of Istanbul the US and Iran had reached secret agreements in clandestine
bilateral contacts channeled through Paris and Vienna.
Seven Firebombs on Jewish Homes
A terrorist hurled seven firebombs at
Jewish homes in Maaleh HaZeitim,
on Jerusalem's Mount of
Olives. He was carrying ten firebombs and managed to throw
seven of them at ground floor apartments in the compound.
What is Your Bottom Line for Iran?
the hugs and personal friendship, Israel’s Defence Minister Ehud Barak arrived in Washington Thursday April 19 to tax his host, US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta, with tough questions about
the administration’s dialogue with Iran. They followed the lines of, “What’s going on? Is
there a deal? Don’t tell me what you have settled with the Iranians, just your
minimal demands, your bottom line.” The questions reflected Israel’s concern at being kept in the dark about US-Iranian
back-track negotiations and American concessions.
Soldiers Back Commander
More than 80 IDF soldiers and reservists
signed a petition of support for a military commander who was filmed in a
physical altercation with a Danish anti-Israel activist. The incident happened
on Saturday when a group of foreign and Arab cyclists sought to block a main
road near Jericho to protest Israel's presence in Judea and Samaria. The
altercation came at the end of nearly two hours of heated confrontation between
protesters and soldiers. The video of the incident uploaded to the internet was
clearly edited in such a way as to cast Eisner in the worst possible light. (Israel has enough
enemies within. Anti-Semites, who are hiding behind ‘support’ for so-called
Palestinians, must not be allowed into the country and/or jailed when they
break Israel’s laws!)
India has, for the
first time in its history, penalized a foreign defence
vendor, Israel’s Military
Industries (IMI), for alleged breach of contract and confiscated its $70
million guarantee - alone of the five defence vendors
recommended to be blacklisted for alleged involvement in graft. An IMI dossier
was filed with the Indian authorities countering the charge. India is strongly
suspected in Jerusalem of cooling its
defence relations with Israel to line up
with Tehran and Moscow and their
refusal to join sanctions against Iran. (Israel must be very
wary, as Jews through the history have, of so-called friends who are ready to
stab them in the back at any time!)
PA Does Not Want Peace - Negotiation Game Must End
PA Prime Minister Salam
Fayyad pulled out of a planned meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netayahu.
Fayyad and Netanyahu were scheduled to meet Tuesday evening in what the PA portrayed
as "a last-ditch effort to salvage peace talks" before the US
election season. The move scuttled what was set to be the highest-level talks
between Israeli and PA officials in nearly two years.
The UN human rights office on Friday charged that three men sentenced to
death in Hamas-run Gaza, approved by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, were executed unlawfully. At least 18 men have been executed in Gaza since Hamas
seized power in the coastal enclave in a bloody 2007 putsch. However, human
rights activists in Gaza say those figures only represent official executions,
not the full range of human rights violations perpetrated by Hamas. Hamas has
routinely incarcerated, kidnapped, maimed and tortured dissidents and political
rivals in Gaza over the past five years. (At the
same time a former correspondent with the BBC, known for his criticism
of Israel, has compared Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Norwegian
mass murderer. Anti-Semites will never change their hateful way)
Quote of the Week:
“We say load and clear: The struggle for Palestine is not a political
struggle. It is a purely ideological struggle. It is a clear religious struggle
between Islam and Zionism… We cannot possible accept (Al Aqsa) remaining under the control of those
whom Allah described as a bunch of apes and pigs, the scholars of whom Allah
described as asses carrying books, or as a dog that pants when you beat it and
pants when you don’t.” - Khan Yunis, Gaza, a Hamas
preacher, as aired on Al Aqsa TV on
February 24 - This is not an opinion of one
misguided idiot, but the ideological standing of all of them - Hamas, Fatah and
of all the Arab/Muslim world. The fool has just stated it loud and clear, as
many before him! Jews need to learn to take control of their own destiny!
Who are the Palestinians?
Extracts from: “Bosnia - Motherland of Palestinians" by Manfred R. Lehmann and “Palestinians ‘Peoplehood’ Based on a Big Lie” by Eli E. Hertz.
Arab Palestinian nationality (which was officially forged in 1964) is an entity
defined by its opposition to Zionism (the Jewish
national liberation movement) and not by its national aspirations.
Like a mantra, Arabs repeatedly claim that the Palestinians
are a native people of Israel. The concept of a ‘Stateless Palestinian people’ is
not based on fact. It is a fabrication! The following is a chronology of an
ethnic make up of so-called Palestinians and their origin.
Until the Jews began returning to the Land of Israel in increasing numbers from the late 19th
century, the area called Palestine
was a God-forsaken backwash that was controlled by the Ottoman Empire.
1880-84 Turkish government settles Muslim Cherkesians refugees in the Golan to ward off Bedouin
robbers. Other settlers in the area include Sudanese, Algerians, Kurds...
In 1878, an Ottoman law granted lands in Palestine to the Moslem refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Carmel region, in the Galilee and in the Plain of
Sharon and in Caesarea. The refugees were further attracted by l2-year tax exemptions and
exemption from military service.
The same colonization policy was also directed toward
Moslem refugees from Russia - particularly from the Crimea and the Caucasus. They were Cherkesians and
Turkmenians - leading to their settling in Abu Gosh,
near Jerusalem and in the Golan Heights.
Refugees from Algeria and Egypt were also settled in Jaffa, Gaza, Jericho and the Golan.
1923 Having discovered the Golan lacks oil but that
the Mosul area in northern Syria is rich in oil, the British cede the Golan to France in exchange for Mosul. At the same time the Trans-Jordan was ceded from
Palestinian mandate as well and Egypt was given control of Sinai, British and France gain control of Suetz
canal. (82% of Jewish land was sacrificed in the
In 1934 alone, 30,000 Syrian Arabs from the Hauran moved across the northern frontier into Mandate
Palestine, attracted by work in and around the newly built British port and the
construction of other infrastructure projects. They even dubbed Haifa Um el-Amal (‘the city of work’).
The Ottoman Turks’ census (1882) recorded only
141,000 Muslims in the Palestine.
The British census in 1922 reported 650,000 Muslims.
