Gloom of the Next War.
1. Iran has, openly and bluntly, threaten to destroy Israel and actively pursues development of nuclear weapon.
2. Hizbullah has re-armed and obtained more long-range rockets than it had before the last Lebanon war and built up covert army for a new assault against Israel.
3. Hamas shelling Israel using Quasam, Grad and Katyusha rockets daily.
4. Syria has brought several divisions closer to Israeli border.
5. Pakistan tested ballistic rockets, with range of 2,500 kilometres, cable of caring nuclear warheads.
In Memory of the Hero: Yossi Harel the ship commander, whose attempt to bring Holocaust survivors to Palestine aboard the “Exodus” 1947 built support for Israel's founding, died on Saturday.
Olmert in Need of Intensive Psychiatric Care. At the same time when CIA officials tell US Congress that North Korea had been helping Syria build a plutonium-based nuclear reactor, which Israel destroyed last September, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert gave the ‘life line’ to Syria by his decision to put the Golan Heights, Jewish land, on the negotiating table in exchange for a ‘promise’ of peace with Syria. Even Kadima members in Knesset, rebelled against this stupidity and treachery. Only two years ago Olmert said: "As long as I serve as prime minister, the Golan Heights will remain in our hands because it is an integral part of the State of Israel." (It is time to resign and find a good psychiatrist!)
Another Delusional in Power. American President George W. Bush welcomed PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas as "a man of peace." President Bush added: Abbas is "a man of vision," "He rejects the idea of using violence to achieve objectives.”
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Why must Israel provide health care to the enemy population, which supports bombing of Jews with rockets and destruction of Israel? Why must Israel open her borders and give them job? Most countries, even Muslim ones, don’t! Leadership of so-called Palestinians has been using the international aid to buy rockets and bullets. So why Israel must care about terror-infested mob!
JNF, Whose Land is it? The Jewish National Fund (JNF) owns 2,250 dunams of land in Gaza that is being illegally squatted upon by so-called Palestinians – with Jews forbidden to live on it. The JNF purchased the land in the 1940s, with money donated by Jews worldwide seeking to redeem the Land of Israel for a Jewish national home. The JNF also has 53,000 dunams of land in Syria, which was purchased in the 30s. (Why is JNF silent about Jews land? The organization betrays the memory and trust of Jews who paid to secure future of Jewish people on Jewish ancestral land!)
Quote of the Week:
“America did not want Israel to go and fight the Six-Day War. America did not want Israel to go and bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq… I respect the United States a lot, but I expect that kind of respect back… People who respect themselves, get the kind of respect they deserve from others.” - Moshe Feiglin, the head of the Jewish Leadership faction within the Likud party.
Please, Call Exterminators. Over sixty-five percent of Arabs in Gaza support continued suicide bombings against Israeli civilians. Nearly 50 percent of Gaza's civilians feel that launching rockets at Israeli civilians is a "useful" means of terrorism. Meanwhile, Israel is allowing the transfer of hundreds of truckloads of food and supplies per week into Gaza. (When a house is infested with termites or rats, exterminators are called. The same approach must be applied to terror-infested population. Enemy must be resolutely removed from Jewish land!)
Delusional and Jew-hating Bigots Who Rule the World. Former US President Jimmy Carter failed in his self-appointed mission to seek information about Ehud Goldwasser, Eldad Regev and Gilad Shalit. Carter claimed that Hamas is willing to be Israel's neighbour even after Hamas boss in Damascus, Khaled Mashaal, refused Carter’s request to halt the rocket fire on Israel for a month, without preconditions, to gain some international goodwill. (Hamas has immediately issued denial of any intention to recognise Israel!)
Duplicity of Occupied Lands.
by Steven Shamrak.
There are many lands around the world that have been occupied not so long ago by other countries. Many of them are still subjugated to the rule of an occupying power. They were conquered during offensive or defensive wars, throughout the process of establishment of statehood or as a part of colonial and imperial policy. The following is a far from complete list of the currently occupied lands:
Great Britain still occupies 17 provinces of Ireland, Gibraltar and is holding on to the many residual symbols of her former colonial glory around the world.
France is still holding on to many overseas territories like New Caledonia and French Guinea. France and Spain divided and have no intention to give independence to the Basque people, the oldest indigenous living group known in Europe.
China – The international community has done nothing to stop occupation of Tibet by China. Eastern, predominantly Muslim, provinces of China are still under ‘imperial’ communist rule.
Chile – From the 1840s, heavy Anglo-Chilean investments were made in nitrate mining on the Bolivian coast. Bolivia lost its coastal region after the war of Bolivia has been economically stifled by Chile with limited access to the sea ports.
Panama proclaimed its independence after the US expressed interest in obtaining the rights to the canal, which Colombia refused. US marines landed in Panama the same day when independence was declared.
Russia has no plans to return the eastern part of Poland it has occupied since before WW2 and end occupation of eastern Prussia, the Kuril Islands and Southern Sakhalin. Russia still retains its status as an imperial power by holding on to Chechnya, Dagistan, North Ossetia, Tatarstan and many other national enclaves which were occupied by Tsar.
USA – The biggest and leading democracy of the world is one of the biggest occupiers as well. There is no intention of even talking about compensation for, never mind returning, the occupied land which used to be, not long ago, a part of Mexico. What about Puerto Rico, Hawaii and other ‘strategic interests’?
The United Nations maintains a list of territories that do not govern themselves. The list was initially prepared in 1946 and adopted in 1986. It has officially endorsed control of these lands by their former colonial powers!
It should be remembered that most countries around the world (including USA, UK, France, Germany, China and Russia) were forged and established their current borders during the last 300 years. Their creation was accompanied by dramatic conquests and destruction of unique and independent cultures. In a Russian play one character asked the audience: “Look, who are the judges?” Yes, who are they to tell Jews what is their land and to force Israel to give away Jewish land to Arab scoundrels?
Israel is the only country that can claim its statehood and ownership of the land. Jewish people have over 3,000 years of spiritual and historical connection with the land. Israel is the only state, which withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula after it was conquered during a defensive war. In exchange, Israel received the worthless piece of paper, which is called the Peace Agreement with Egypt. And yet, Israel is the only country under international pressure to surrender her own land to the enemy, a recently forged people - called Palestinians, whose only goal, they are not even hiding it, is to destroy the Jewish state.
There are three reasons why Israel is under such an international onslaught – Traditional international anti-Semitism, a desire to sell out Israel in exchange for a steady supply of oil, and an appeasement of Islamic terrorists in order to defer attacks on the West!
Does it make sense? What definitely takes place and make sense is that the world’s economic and political powers (“Puppet Masters”) apply pressure on Israel and use any means at their disposal, including manipulation of international law. An example of this is how it was done after Israel won the War of Independence. Immediately the Fourth Geneva convention ruled out population transfer as a legitimate way of resolving conflicts – but only when it suits their economic and political interests, with complete disregard to historical, spiritual and even legal rights of any people, not just Jews (remember ongoing dismantling of Yugoslavia and non-existence of Kurdistan – the homeland of 35 million Kurds, divided and occupied by five countries). The multitude of international organizations - including the UN, IRC, Amnesty International etc - are at full disposal of the international “Puppet Masters” and only too eager to assist by generating and manipulating public opinion - creating the illusion of propriety. The bottom line: it is all about power, control and beyond doubt money!
