Yom Hazikaron - Memorial Day

Before Israel celabretes its 66th Independence Day we mark the Memorial Day. Israel remembers those killed in the line of duty or by terror attacks; number of bereaved families in 2014 stands at 17,038.

Brave Arab Girl Spoke the Truth!

(A Christian family from Bethlehem, living in of fear reprisal from the PA, distanced itself from a video made by their daughter, in which she offers a pro-Israel point of view and blames the PA and Muslims for instability, terror and the drop in the Christian population.)

The video, titled “Christy a Palestinian Christian’s plea to Dr. Saeb Erekat,” was posted to YouTube (please watch it!).

Christy Anastas directs questions at Erekat,  a senior Palestinian negotiator, and the second, longer segment, shows Anastas giving a presentation in which she talks about life as a Christian in Bethlehem (Systematic ‘Ethnic cleansing’ of Christians conducted by the PA).

Anastas said that Palestinian children are encouraged to violently confront Israel Defense Forces soldiers in order to die as martyrs, and that incentives included payoffs by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and the Palestinian Authority, given to the families of Palestinians that were killed… She also said that “PA government has given 74 million dollars to the families of Martyrs”.

“How many Muslim countries do we have in the world?” she said. “Why can’t the Jews have one country?” “I believe God has given this land to the Jews as an everlasting covenant,” she said. Anastas also expressed her support for the security barrier that separates the West Bank from Israel, and described the Israeli victory in the 1967 Six-Day War as “God’s Hand.”

Jewish Victims of the Hypocrisy of the Fake Peace Process

Shelly Dadon, 20, from Afulah, was murdered on Thursday, May 1, in a wood near the northern town of Migdal Haemek by a gang of Israeli Arabs belonging to “The Galilee Liberators.” She died of savage multiple stabs to her upper torso. This organization’s victims included the IDF soldier Oleg Shaychat and Dana Bennett in 2003 and Yofim Weinstein in 2009. (No media reports or international condemnation!)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Recently, I met an Australian Christian guy, whom claimed that he is a supporter of Israel. During our conversation he revealed to me some of his perplexing beliefs: during the War of Independence advancing Muslim armies only wanted to take control of Arab populated areas; Arab ‘refugees’ left Palestine not because they were ordered by their leaders to ease slaughter of Jews, but due to annihilation of Arabs by Jews. He went on talking about the pro-Israel bias of Australian media, and that Palestinians are a real nation and he ended with saying: “Look how Jews are terrorising Palestinians”. Like they say: “With friends like this, who needs enemies!”

PA Threat of 'All Options'

The PA is considering "all options" in response to the suspension of peace talks. However, Chief Negotiator for the PA Saeb Erekat noted that the Hamas deal was more important to the PA than peace, saying "the priority now for the Palestinians is reconciliation and national unity." Erekat further tried to blame Israel for the failure of the talks, saying "Netanyahu's government has been asked for years to choose between peace and settlements and it chose settlements." It is worth noting that a construction freeze was not a condition of the peace talks, although Abbas demanded a three-month freeze on Judea and Samaria construction as a condition for talks to continue, threatening to disband the PA otherwise. (The threat is not a new revelation. The PA has never ended terror attacks against Israel. It sabotaged and provoked suspension of talks in order to achieve its ultimate goal - destruction of Israel!)

Was it a Short ‘Unity’ Honeymoon?

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas declared that the new government will "obey my policy," and would "recognize Israel and reject violence and terrorism, and recognize international commitments." However Mahmoud Al-Zahar, a senior official and co-founder of Hamas, had a different recollection of the unity deal. He said that Hamas will never recognize Israel's right to exist or put its terrorist army under PA control.

Condolences for “Incidents” - not “Sorry” for Genocide

Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has offered condolences to the grandchildren of Armenians who were killed by Ottoman soldiers during World WWI. "The incidents of the First World War are our shared pain," Erdogan said. Erdogan's comments were the first overt attempt by a Turkish leader to offer condolences for the killings that some historians consider as the first genocide of the 20th century. Armenia has tried to get Turkey to recognise the killings of up to 1.5m people as genocide. (The genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks in 1915 and more importantly the international indifference to the horror committed by Turkey paved the way for the Holocaust - extermination of over 6 million Jews during WWII - committed by Nazi Germany with eager participation of their helpers, European anti-Semites!)

Muslims Mob Terrified Jewish Children

Several dozen religious Jews, including children, ascended the Temple Mount, and were surrounded by an angry mob. In the course of the tour of the Mount, Muslims began hurling objects at Jews, spat at them, hurled shoes and sticks and pulled the sidelocks of one of the children. The Temple Movement blamed Israeli police for inaction and failing to disperse the Muslim attackers. (There would be enormous international outrage if this was done by Jews against Muslims!)

US ‘Anger’ does not Last Long!

The US is to deliver 10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt, relaxing a suspension of aid imposed after the military removed Mohamed Morsi from the presidency last year. The delivery will aid Egypt's "counter-terrorism" operations in the Sinai Peninsula, the Pentagon said. (or attack Israel whenever Egypt will decide to!)

Egypt is Waiting for “Historic Moment”

Spokesmen for the two Egyptian presidential candidates recently advocated for putting the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel to a vote in a referendum. “If it were up to me,” said Tamer Hindawi, Sabahi’s spokesman, “I would abolish the Camp David Accords right now. But if you ask about Sabahi's campaign position - Sabahi believes that the Zionists are our enemy, but when the historic moment arrives, he will decide what action to take.” (Must Israel wait? Why not take over Sinai and let so-called Palestinians have their country over there?)

After Arm-twisting Came Blackmail - “Apartheid” Labelling

US Secretary of State John Kerry has said that Israel risks becoming "an apartheid state" if there is no two-state solution to the Israeli-PA conflict.

Abbas Threaten to Hand West Bank over to Israel

Mahmoud Abbas warned that if peace talks fail he may dismantle the PA and hand over responsibility for 2.5 million of his people to Israel. But as quickly as Mr. Abbas made the threat, Palestinian officials backpedaled. “No Palestinian is speaking of an initiative to dismantle the Palestinian Authority,” Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erakat told reporters. (Another empty promise. Where would he go - to Hamastan in Gaza or his family home in Damascus, Syria?)

Cretins Always Blame Jews for Their Own Stupidity

A senior republican in Congress, House Republican leader Eric Cantor, criticized Secretary of State John Kerry for reportedly saying Israel could become an apartheid state if it doesn't reach a peace deal with the PA. Cantor urged Kerry to "apologize to the Israeli government and people." (Idiots are not willing to change their ways and usually blame Jews for failure of their foolish policies. They feel that it beneath them to apologize to Jews!)

Abbas Still Seeks Israel Peace Talks?

Mahmoud Abbas has said he is still ready to extend peace talks with Israel, despite a recent breakdown in the process. He said a new unity government with militant Hamas group would recognise Israel and renounce violence. But a Hamas spokesman said the group "will not give any cover for any negotiations with the enemy". Both, Fatah and Hamas say they aim to form a unity government within weeks. (A convoluted statement is designed to provide excuse, as they need it, for the Western countries, traditional anti-Semites, to continue providing financial support to anti-Israel terrorist entity!)

Extreme Case of Stockholm Syndrome

Jew-turned-Muslim sentenced to 2.5 years. Born Joseph Leonard Cohen, Yousef al-Khattab, 45 from New Jersey, converted from Judaism to Islam in his late 20s. He founded a radical Islamic website that praised figures like Osama bin Laden and Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan. (Mild and common expression of the Stockholm Syndrome is when Jews support bogus claims of our enemies and reject the rights of the Jewish state to Jewish ancestral land!)

Terrorists’ Unity Deal Saved Israel from Israel

Israel needs to thank PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for making a unity deal with Hamas. "The reconciliation agreement between the head of the Fatah murderers Abbas and the head of the Hamas murderers (Ismail) Haniyeh saved us. Without this reconciliation agreement, who knows what kind of situation we would have entered?" said analyst and Attorney Yoram Sheftel. (It was said that so-called “Palestinians never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity!” It is not the first time when peace negotiation came close to an agreement, when PA pulls ‘a rabbit out of hat’ and undermines any achieved progress. Why? Peace with Israel is not the aim of Arab terrorism!)

Political Correctness is Censorship on Free Speech

A candidate in the European elections, Paul Weston, has been arrested after making a speech quoting from a book by Winston Churchill about Islam. He had been reading from Churchill's book “The River War”, written in 1899 while he was a British army officer in Sudan: “Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it… Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.” (Without facing the truth about Islam and the Muslim culture of violence the West is doomed to lose the war on terror!)

No ‘Outrage’ about this Attack

Iraqi army helicopters have attacked a jihadist convoy inside eastern Syria as it tried to approach the border, killing at least eight people. "The army struck eight tanker trucks in Wadi Suwab inside Syrian territory as they were trying to enter Iraqi territory to provide the (jihadist) Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) with fuel," said Brigadier General Saad Maan. (When Israel strikes terrorist targets outside its borders it is major international ‘crisis’!)

'Inhuman' Israeli Prisons

A terrorist who murdered 2 Israeli students was recently released from jail as a "goodwill gesture" complained how the "hardships" of life in an Israeli jail prevented him from fully pursuing his hobby of stamp-collecting. Many Israelis have long maintained that conditions for Arab terrorists in jail are far too comfortable and do not provide enough of a deterrent, citing numerous incidents of Palestinian Arabs who have carried out attacks purely in order to receive the perks that Israeli jails afford them, including free higher education.

Saudi Sent a Strong Message to the US

Saudi Arabia exhibited its nuclear-capable missiles in a military parade ending a large-scale war game. By showing off the DF-3, Riyadh was displaying its readiness for use in a potential war with Iran and its non-reliance any longer on a US nuclear shield. (The US lost all respectability and trust even in Saudi Arabia, the best ‘friend’ of the US)

Quote of the Week:

"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" - Quran (8:12) - Would you call it a spiritual struggle or call for genocide?

Anti-Semitism a Global Problem

Carol Nuriel, a senior researcher at the Anti-Defamation League, said that there had never really been a fall in the level of anti-Semitism. “It's always there in the background, waiting for an opportunity to burst forth,” she said. “We see, for example, how the unrest in Ukraine is being taken advantage of by anti-Semitic groups for attacks against Jews, and how events in Israel and the Middle East raise the specter of anti-Semitism.”

With that, there has been a fall in the number of anti-Semitic acts in the US, with reported cases down 19% over the past year. However, (they) were more serious. The most recent incident showing that level of anti-Semitism was the shooting in Kansas by a former top KKK organizer…

That blood libel is very widespread among the Arabs, she said. The media in Arab countries present “scientific studies” that claim to show the veracity of that claim. “The Arab populations easily 'buy' those stories because their state media promotes them,” said Nuriel.

Another aspect of modern anti-Semitism is the accusation that Jews are guilty of “dual loyalty,” putting loyalty to Israel before loyalty to their own countries. Many of these stories are spread over the internet, which is helping anti-Semitism grow in a way that cannot be ignored...

All these phenomena are experienced by Jews around the world to some extent, with some “strains” of anti-Semitism more dominant in certain areas than others. According to Nuriel, communities must learn to defend themselves, and keep law enforcement abreast of developments.
