Forget Waiting for Peace.
by Victor Sharpe (israelnationalnews.com)
Islam will never accept Israel unless the ideology undergoes a reformation, but it cannot do so and still be called Islam. That said, there is no future for the Jewish state if it believes that the Muslim world will ever accept it in true and lasting peace. Israel has to accept the dismal fact that it cannot ever have peaceful neighbours who will not at every opportunity wish to destroy it. Israel must continue to prosper and thrive as a state in the knowledge that it can never let down its guard...
True peace can never be achieved between Muslim and non-Muslim nations. Islam mandates the faithful to spread their religion through territorial conquest or, as in the case of Israel, by reclaiming what Muslims believe they have lost...
World leaders fail to understand the Muslim mindset. Israeli leaders, who of all people should know better, still fall into the fatal trap of believing that the Western model of lasting peace between nation-states can equally apply in the Middle East between Muslim and non-Muslim nations. It is a fallacy. The conflict between Israel and the Arabs in general, and between Israel and those who call themselves Palestinians in particular, is not territorial. It is theological. It is part of the existential conflict that has existed between Islam and the rest of the world since the 7th century. Much of the Islamic world now feels empowered, as perhaps never before, and seeks global domination with renewed vigour. This is the tangible and growing threat to the world; not global warming...
New Israeli leaders must look to the Torah and into their own people’s Biblical history. They must see again the nature of their enemies as spelled out in crystal clarity by the Almighty through the words of the Jewish prophet Jeremiah: “They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious, saying, 'Peace, peace,' but there is no peace. We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble.”
Israel is a Test Ground for Global Islamic Terrorism! Five years ago, al Qaeda enlisted two Pakistani British Muslims to land by sea in Tel Aviv, seize a large beachside hotel and the nearby US embassy, take hostages and shoot as many as possible. Those directives recurred strikingly - albeit on a mega-scale - in the Islamic terrorists' method of operation in Mumbai, on Wednesday, Nov. 26. (DEBKfiles) (It was not attack in support of Muslims in India but a global terror act as foreigners, especially British and US citizens, were singled out and a Jewish centre attacked! Islamic terror is global. Israel is the first target. You are next on their hit list!)
Mumbai Attack - Israel Helps Immediately. In the wake of the ongoing massive terrorist assault on Mumbai, Israel's national first response service teams arrived to Mumbai on Thursday night to offer their assistance.
292 Arab Children Died as Terrorist.
Almost 300 children have been killed while taking part in terrorist attacks over the past eight years, a new study conducted by Palestinian Authority researcher Mahdi Jaradat has revealed. Fatah, supposedly Israel's peace partner, had the most fatalities, with a total of 1,437 terrorists, 128 of them children, killed since September 28, 2000. Hamas was in second place with 1,410 killed in the same time period, 96 of them minors. Fifty-three children were killed while taking part in Islamic Jihad operations. A total of 95 women were killed while carrying out terrorist attacks.
The Truce – Hamas Style. The Hamas said that the mortar attack on the Nahal Oz military base near Gaza, which wounded eight IDF soldiers, does not mean the end of the truce with Israel.
Food for Thought: It is time to become serious and protect our right to live in peace and democracy! How many more warnings does the world need? 9/11, Bali, 7/7, Madrid, Mumbai and many more - aren’t this enough? Israel is not the problem, it is the solution! Only Israel can start the defeat of Islamic expansionism, disguised as a Palestinian movement. This will stop the endless global Islamic terror. Half-hearted measures do not work! The hypocrisy of dealing with Islamic expansionism must end! - Steven Shamrak
Mistake or Deliberate Disrespect? White House sent American Jewish leaders invitations to a Chanukah reception, which included a picture of a horse-drawn cart pulling a Christmas tree to the White House, which is decorated with a holiday wreath on the White House.
Free Jonathan Pollard. A massive and concerted effort is being made to bring about the release of Jonathan Pollard from prison after 23 years. Outgoing U.S. President George W. Bush is currently preparing a list of possibly hundreds of American prisoners to pardon, the goal of the international campaign is to have Jonathan Pollard included. (Even Soviet spies, during the ‘Cold War’ era, were not punished so harshly!)
Victim Mentality of Israeli Government. The PA’s Mahmoud Abbas says Israel will free 250 prisoners as a goodwill gesture before Eid al-Adha, an important Muslim holiday expected to take place on Dec. 8. (Will Hamas release Gilad Shalit as a goodwill gesture in honour of Eid al-Adha? Will they stop sending rockets to Israel? Appeasement of Muslims never works. They see it as a sign of weakness!)
Answer to Goodwill Gesture. While 30 trucks of food and medical supplies were crossing into Gaza last week through the Keren Shalom crossing, two Qassam rockets were fired into the western Negev, prompting defence minister Ehud Barak to close all the crossings again.
Another Jewish Contribution to Christianity. An Israeli company, Ioimage, has won a contract to secure Vatican City. The system includes "smart" security cameras that can be viewed in real time by computers connected to the Internet.
Time to Clear Gaza of Litter! Foreign governments and international aid organizations demand that the Israeli government allow shipments of food and humanitarian aid into Gaza, despite the fact that rockets continue to be fired from the Strip - with the enthusiastic support of its local residents. (When in the history of the humanity has a country under attack supplied its enemies with food and kept them warm? Do the US and allied forces do the same for Taliban and al-Qaida?)
Quote of the Week: ''Kadima will sell Israel to the Arabs by making concessions on Jerusalem.'' - Shas deputy Yaacov Mergui, reacting to a statement by Kadima head and foreign minister Tzipi Livni that Kadima will not sell Israel to the ultra-orthodox – Even a political ‘trader’ like Shas has lost its patience with Kadima’s direction of self-hate and treason!
Jordan: What Peace Agreement? Jordanian newspaper Al-Arab Al-Yawm refused to publish the advertisement taken out by the Palestinian Authority, and which appeared in the Israeli press. Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said "While it was possible for a foreign government to place a political advertisement in Israeli papers it seems impossible for the same government to place a call for Israeli Arab peace in a Jordanian paper, because of the Israeli flag.
Israeli Society is Highly Corrupt. Seventy-two percent of Israelis rate corruption in Israel as high or very high, according to the Corruption Index for 2008 annual poll. The survey found a 10%-20% growth in public perception of corruption. Participants ranked stealing the public's money for private use, receiving money or benefits illegally, and appointing unskilled employees or relatives to public positions, as the most corrupt acts. (This is not news! Unfortunately, this endless corruption brings and keeps unqualified and pathetic idiots into political leadership.)
The Longest International Hypocrisy. The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, is running out of money. Jordan is warning that the UNRWA is facing a deficit of some $160 million for 2009. (Billions of dollars are wasted by the international community every year to perpetuate the existence of the fake refugees, who are using terror to destroy Israel!)

Recently we commemorated the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, Nazi Germany's pogrom that signalled the beginning of the end of European Jewry. Two hundred synagogues were burned, Jewish businesses throughout Germany and Austria were looted, which eventually led to the deportation of tens of thousands of Jews to concentration camps.
Now, 70 years later, the Holocaust is being distorted and trivialized in places around the world including Lithuania where a shocking 96.4% of Lithuania's Jewish citizens were murdered by the Nazis and local collaborators.
To this day, not a single Lithuanian has ever been punished in independent Lithuania for Holocaust crimes and every effort has been made to prevent such criminals from facing prosecution.
Instead - as unbelievable as it may sound - Lithuanian prosecutors, urged on by an anti-Semitic press, have sought to indict for "war crimes," heroic World War II-era Jewish partisans for their anti-Nazi resistance!
