Is There Anything to Celebrate?

by Steven Shamrak

59 years ago, the Jews were finally able take control over part of the Jewish ancestral land and create the State of Israel. It was a time of national climax and the triumph of modern Zionism. We lost 1% of the Jewish population in Palestine during the Independence war later, and were not able to retrieve most of the Jewish land. But nothing could dim the fact that after 2000 years of life in exile, Jews were once again in charge of their land!

At this moment, during the celebration of our independence, the current gutless and traitorous political leadership of the country is talking about “painful sacrifice”. We had already made them in 1922, by letting Britain to cut off Trans-Jordan and the Golan Heights, respectively 77% and 5% of our land; in 1948, by agreeing on a ridiculous maze-map the left over crumbs that the UN had allocated for Jews in order to facilitate ‘Holocaust-2’ by Arab states.

Now Olmert is paving the way for more concessions to the Arab terrorists. It will create more demands from Arabs and more Jewish lives will be lost. Nothing will please the enemies of the Jewish people, Arabs and other ‘well-wishers’, until they extort the final ‘concession’ – destruction of Israel!

Under unyielding pressure from the International anti-Semitic hypocrisy, Israel has made an endless string of concessions and sacrifices during the past 59 years. Unfortunately the pressure has been severe during the last two decades. And the corrupt, aimless and gutless leadership of Israel was not able to resist it. As a result, Israel has being ruled by people with no integrity or national character! At the moment, the Jews are in a worse position than we were in 1948. The years of political impotence, corruption and selfishness have only brought the denigration of our national, moral and spiritual identity.

With a weak Israel, we are experiencing the rise of the international anti-Semitism conducted by Muslims and the predominately Left political spectrum. The Jews in Israel and the Jewish communities worldwide have been continuously losing their national identity Self-criticism has become the national trait; support of true Zionism is highly unpopular among Jews.

Jews have nothing to be proud about or celebrate this year! Israel must shake off its “they will not allow us” mentality and elect a new, vibrant, nationalistic government, which is prepared to end the hypocrisy forever and re-unite all Jewish land and Jewish people. Only then will Jews have something to celebrate next year!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

The process of restoration of the Jewish state in Palestine started long before the WW-2. Creation of the state of Israel, contrary to Muslim and anti-Semitic propaganda, is not a result of Holocaust. It is the conclusion of many years of relentless Zionist work and of the League of Nation resolution of 1922, which unfortunately was highly distorted by anti-Semitically inclined world powers.

More Criminal Offences? Ehud Olmert is facing a third criminal probe after a government watchdog's recommendation that police investigate his role in granting a multimillion-dollar loan to a former business partner. Mr Olmert is already being probed about allegations that while he was finance minister he tried to influence the sale of the Israeli State's stake in a major bank, Bank Leumi. The comptroller is also investigating how Mr Olmert came to acquire a house in Jerusalem's up market German Colony area from an overseas backer. (It is time to clean the house of the rubbish!)

Fostering Thuggery in IDF. MK Tzvi Hendel (NRP/National Union) has asked the Chairman of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to investigate what he calls the army's "scandalous behavior" towards thousands of people who marched to Homesh on Independence Day. "Not allowing drinking water to get through to the people, including women and children; prevention of medical treatment to marchers who fainted…" "A unmistakable political stench emanates from these draconian decisions," Hendel wrote in his letter, "and they were manifest in the soldiers' vulgar behavior towards the marchers…"

Security Fence – Traitor’s Admission. During a recent meeting UN representative Livni admitted that while local Arabs often complain that the fence will hurt their chances to build a state in the area, the fence actually promotes their goal. (There is no more pretence that by building the fence, Kadima traitors care about the lives of Jews in Israel. It was covert plan of surrender and betrayal from the beginning!)

Facing Second War of Independence. MK Israel Hasson (Israel Our Home) stated that former Balad MK Azmi Bishara, who left Israel nearly three weeks ago and announced his resignation from the Knesset while in Egypt, would already be in prison in a "normal" country. "If we don't wake up now, we will have to fight for our independence again very soon. It will be a second war for independence against Israel's Arabs who will be supported by Hamas," he said. (Does anyone listen? But in the next war, we must set clear objective! Arabs view moderation as a weakness.)

Cost of Oslo War. Arab terrorists have killed 864 Israelis and wounded more than 14,000 others since they launched the Oslo War, also known as the Second Intifada, in October 2000. The number of terrorism fatalities represents half of the 1,635 citizens who died in terrorist attacks since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Sixty-six people in Israel died in terrorist attacks in the past year. (Killing Jews in Israel has become the sickening normality! Who needs the War when we have such a ‘wonderful’ Peace!)

Quote of the Week:

"The Partition of Palestine is illegal. It will never be recognized... Jerusalem was and will forever be our capital. Eretz Israel will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it. And for Ever."- Menachem Begin, the day after the U.N. vote to partition Palestine.

'Go to hell' from Moderate Muslim. Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami has called for peaceful dialogue with the West, but cursed Israeli journalists who approached him at the sixth Eurasion Media Forum in Kazakhstan, saying, "Go to hell!" (Will the British National Union of Journalists (NUJ) vote for boycott of Iran for this despicable behaviour, as they did against Israel?)

Truce or Convenience of Hudna. Hamas ended its ‘truce’ with Israel by firing 40 rockets and 70 mortars from Gaza, declaring an end to a five-month cease-fire which actually never existed - more than 230 rocket attacks were launched against Israel. A spokesman for Hamas’ armed wing said “This is a message to the Zionist enemy that our strikes will continue. We are ready to kidnap more and more, and kill more and more of your soldiers.” (This is a “hit and run” policy. Whenever Arabs want to, they break the truce, knowing that Olmert’s government will welcome another Hudna! Yet again, Olmert has opted for another limited response to a major terror attack.)

UN and PA Building on Jewish-Owned Land in Jerusalem. Land in Jerusalem owned by a Jewish group, estimated to be worth about $38 million, and purchased primarily using Jewish donor funds has been used for the illegal construction of dozens of Palestinian apartment buildings, a refugee camp and a United Nations school. The Jewish National Fund, which owns the properties, has done little to boot the Arab squatters from its land "One can almost say this is a fraud being perpetrated on the donors of this land. If the JNF doesn't do something about it, a message will be sent that we don't care that Arabs steal Jewish-donated land.” said Morton Klein, national president of the Zionist Organization of America. (These politically correct ‘idiots’ have been silent about Jewish-owned land left behind in Syria and Jordan, and selling out the Jewish dream in Israel now. But no one cares!)

Was Elvis a Jew?

In 1998, The Wall Street Journal published an article titled, "All Shook Up in the Holy Land" exposing Elvis Presley's unlikely Jewish lineage. Apparently, Elvis' maternal great-great grandmother, Nancy Burdine, was a Jew. Her daughter gave birth to Doll Mansell who gave birth to Gladys Smith who gave birth to Elvis. Although it sounds improbable, according to Jewish law, which confers Jewish lineage by way of the mother, (strangely) that makes Elvis Presley Jewish. (Rabbis and Israeli governments are unwilling define the Jewish land clearly. In order to avoid controversy, the issue of “Who is a Jew?” had been buried deep long ago! We will never achieve our goals by “keeping our heads in the sand”! Ambiguity creates uncertainty. Uncertainty destroys the people’s will. Only well defined objectives are easily attainable!)
