Israel Needs Antidote to Biden’s Madness

by David Israel

While Prime Minister Netanyahu announced he was cancelling another delegation in protest of the US failure to veto an anti-Israel UNSC vote, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant visited Washington and made clear that an IDF operation in Rafah is crucial to the effort to destroy Hamas, whose leadership is hiding somewhere in that southern Gaza city’s tunnels.

American high-ranking officials reportedly repeated the administration’s magical mantra, that there is a better way to annihilate Hamas. But this time around, the Americans appear ready to accept an IDF attack that would conclude the six-month war on Gaza. The Biden White House is only asking for one thing: make sure to remove more than a million civilians from Rafah before the IDF moves in.

The Egyptians are threatening to shoot any Gazan who dares break through

the enormous fortifications they have amassed along the border with the Strip.

NO international protests or condemnations!

Israel is proposing to build a tent city on the Mediterranean shore, where the IDF will care for the humanitarian needs of the evacuated civilians. One problem: to move a million or so people from Rafah to the beach would take weeks, maybe a month. Also, how would Israel stop Hamas leaders who will mingle with the civilians as they are doing today in Rafah and across the Gaza Strip?

The only antidote to Biden’s and Blinken’s madness is a quick and resolute IDF takeover of Rafah, the execution of all remaining Hamas terrorists and commanders, and a steadfast blocking of any administration attempt to impose PA rule on Gaza. (And remove all enemies from Gaza.)

Has Egypt been Rewarded for Keeping Gazans out of Sinai?

Egypt's Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said a deal had been signed to increase an IMF loan package from $3 billion to $8 billion. To keep “desperate Gazans” away from crossing to the Sinai. Egypt has spent millions on building and reinforcing border walls with Gaza!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

In the early 1960’s, the USSR switched its support, as a part of the Cold war, from Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, to the Arab states and Egypt. The Western Socialists began following the Soviet lead, and they still actively do. In their Antisemitic blindness the Leftist members of the international press are venomously attacking Israel, disregarding the facts and reality of the conflict between Israel and fake Palestinians. They have been ignoring the truth about the enemies of Israel - Hamas and Islamic Jihad who despise the ‘godless’, feminist and gay rights supporting secular ideology of the Left even more than they hate the existence of the Jewish state!

The 'Ugly Nazi' doesn't Care about Jewish Hostages

The United Nations Security Council failed to pass a US-sponsored resolution that called for a cease-fire in Gaza following vetoes from Russia and China. The proposal called for an immediate and sustained cease-fire to protect civilians on all sides, allow for the delivery of essential humanitarian assistance and to alleviate humanitarian suffering. The resolution called for an immediate ceasefire tied to the release of hostages. Israel's Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan addressed the meeting after the vote. He said: "The American Resolution – should it have passed – would have marked a moment of morality for the UN, a place where good is evil, and justice is injustice. It would have been the very first time that this Council – or any UN body – condemned Hamas and their brutal massacre. Yet sadly, for purely political reasons, this resolution did not pass, and terrorists can continue benefiting from this Council whitewashing their crimes." (By adopting this resolution, the 'Useless Nothing' would put pressure on Hamas to release Jewish hostages, and a temporary cease-fire would give Israel approval and an opportunity to finish the job in Gaza.)

Hamas Rockets Killed Gazans

The Israeli agency COGAT (Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories: Judea and Samaria and towards the Gaza Strip) reported that according to Hamas’ own data and documentation, about 11% of their indiscriminate rocket launches at Israeli civilians from within Gaza, since the October 7 massacre, fell within Gaza, resulting in the deaths of Gazan civilians. Because of this, Hamas demanded Islamic Jihad not install rocket launchers near the homes of Hamas members to avoid the risk to its own people. COGAT also refuted a CNN report that claimed 500 trucks a day pre-war entered Gaza with supplies. Only an average of 70 trucks a day entered Gaza carrying food pre-war. The average number of food trucks entering Gaza per day is now 140.

Progress in Reclaiming Jewish Land

Israel’s finance minister, Bezalel Smotrich, announced the seizure of 10 square kilometers (3.8 square miles) in the West Bank. The move marks the single largest land seizure by the Israeli government since the 1993 Oslo accords. The land transfer will cut across the West Bank, dividing the north and south. In June, the Knesset waived a long-standing legal precedent that required the prime minister and the defence minister to sign off on West Bank settlement construction at every phase.

UNRWA is the Nest of Terrorists!

A former official with UNRWA (the UN agency for “Palestinian refugees), Ahmad Oueidat, admitted that Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and the Secretary-General of the PFLP-GC, Dr. Talal Naji, were teachers in UNRWA schools. Israel said that 12 UNRWA staff had taken part in Hamas’ October 7 attack. Among other things, Israel said those workers kidnapped a woman, handed out ammunition, and actively took part in the massacre at Kibbutz Be’eri, where 97 people were murdered.

Enemy Population is not Innocent

A new poll found that an overwhelming majority of Palestinian Arabs both in Gaza and Judea and Samaria, 71%, see Hamas's decision to attack Israel on October 7th as a good one. Almost all of them, 93%, do not believe the terrorist organization committed war crimes. At the same time, there is a massive jump in the number of Gazans who want a two-state solution and a decline among respondents who think armed resistance is the way to achieve Palestinian statehood. (The enemies see the two-state solution as the first step toward eliminating the Jewish state.)

True Friends do it Differently

The Parliament of Romania adopted a law establishing May 14 as the National Day of Friendship and Solidarity between Romania and the State of Israel, as Israel’s independence was declared by David Ben Gurion on Friday, 5 Iyar 5708, which fell on May 14, 1948. On that day, diplomatic; political; cultural; social; and artistic events will be organized and materials dedicated to the history and promotion of the bilateral Romanian-Israeli relations will be presented.

Quotes of the Week:

"Despite the detailed information presented by Israel about the deep penetration by the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad terrorist organizations into UNRWA in Gaza that showed, among other matters, that more than 2,000 UNRWA employees are members of terrorist organizations, that one-fifth of UNRWA school principals and deputy principals are Hamas personnel and that tunnels or other terrorist infrastructures were found in more than 30 UNRWA facilities. The group's interim report did not even include the simple statement that UNRWA should fire or refrain from employing members of Hamas and other terrorist organizations. All the proposals for cosmetic reforms offered by the group are meaningless and ignore the real problem that UNRWA is part of the terrorist infrastructure of Hamas." - Israel's Foreign Ministry statement - Regardless of what international anti-Semites decide to do with UNRWA, Israel must cut all ties with the organization and not allow UNRWA to operate on the Jewish lands - Judea, Samaria and Gaza!

Who are the Fake Palestinians?

by Eli E. Hertz

The Arab Palestinian nationality (which was officially invented 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 makeup of so-called Palestinians and their origin.

During the Ottoman Empire

Until the Jews began returning to the Land of Israel in increasing numbers from the late 19th century, the area called Palestine was a neglected backwash controlled by the Ottoman Empire.

From 1880-1884, the Turkish government settled Muslim Circassians refugees in the Golan to ward off Bedouin robbers. Other settlers in the area included Sudanese, Algerians, the 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, in the Plain of Sharon, and in Caesarea. The refugees were further attracted by 12-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 Circassians 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.

British Mandate: 1917-1947

In 1923, having discovered that 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, Trans-Jordan was ceded from the Palestinian Mandate, Egypt was given control of the Sinai, and the British and France gained control of the Suez Canal. (82% of Jewish land was sacrificed in the process!)

In 1934 alone, 30,000 Syrian Arabs from the Hauran region moved across the northern frontier into the Palestine Mandate, attracted by work in and around the newly built British port and the construction of other infrastructure projects. They even dubbed Haifa as Um el-Amal (‘the city of work’).

The Ottoman Turk’ census (1882) recorded only 141,000 Muslims in Palestine. The British census in 1922 reported 650,000 Muslims. (Isn’t that a peculiarly sharp increase of population?)
