Israel is a Tiny Oasis of Democracy

( - Reply to an anti-Israel posting)

It is false to state that the Zionist project prevented the emergence of an independent Palestinian Arab state after World War 2. Such a state was integral to the UN partition plan. What did prevent it was the refusal of the Arabs (continuing to this day) to accept Jewish self-determination in any area, however small.

There are currently 22 Arab states with a joint area at least 400 times, and a population (only) 50 times, greater than Israel... (Not so long ago, most of so-called Palestinians have come from those states!)

Not a single one of these entities is a democracy, and few are “secular” in any meaningful sense. Why should Jews abandon their right to self-determination in their own tiny oasis of democracy and trust their futures to the chimera of a “single country, a democratic secular state of Palestine” containing all Jews (like in Gaza?) and Palestinian Arabs.

The religious freedoms and the very existence of religious and ethnic minorities all over the Middle East - Christians, Yazidis, Druze, Kurds, Assyrians - are currently under threat from resurgent Arab-Islamic supremacism. Attacking Israel’s legitimacy is the new-old imperial project to subjugate the Jewish minority, the only one that has yet shown the ability to defend itself. (Without Israel as the Jewish state all religious holy sites - Jewish, Christian and even most Muslim ones - will be destroyed and the will be no Easter for Christians in Jerusalem and Bethlehem!)

‘Ugly Nazi’ Using Its Best Tools Against Israel

1.      Hypocrisy: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon attacked Israel, saying it needed to do more to protect the lives of Palestinian Arab children during counter-terror operations in Gaza. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blasted the UN’s hypocrisy. "This is a dark day for the United Nations,” Netanyahu said. “Instead of mentioning the fact that Hamas turned Gaza's children into hostages when it fired from kindergartens on the children of Israel, the UN chooses again to preach to Israel.” (In Yemen, at least 279 children died in 10 weeks of violence - Ban Ki-Moon does not criticize Saudi Arabia for war it conducts in Yemen - no ‘outrage’ here! And military experts have said that Israel has done more to protect civilians than any other armed forces. If Israel is guilty of war crimes, the US, Great Britain, France and others are guilty of worse crimes.)

2.      Smear: In her initial draft from last month, Leila Zerrougui of Algeria, the UN’s Special Envoy on Children in Armed Conflict, named Israel among the worst abusers of child rights including Islamic State and Boko Haram. After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally appealed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Israel was taken off the list. (For how long is Israel going tolerate this ‘UN-bias’ attitude of the “Ugly Nazi”?)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

How to spot an anti-Semites? - They usually ask “Why are there so many rich Jews?” They never ask “Why are over 22% recipients of Nobel Prizes Jews?” (Note: there are 14 million Jews, less than 0.02% of the world population) So, why are Jews so disproportionably successful in business, science, agriculture, military, medicine, computer technology and communication, and other vocations? And this is in spite of chronic discriminatory treatment by most countries and international organizations!

Smart Investors Ignore BDS

Bill Gates, Carlos Slim Helu, Mark Cuban, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffet are amongst an ever-growing number of people that have or are currently investing millions of dollars in the Israeli tech industry. The unique experiences and skillsets in Israel set it apart from similar types of companies in Silicon Valley.

Another ‘Quiet’ Terror Attack Against Jews

PA media and security officials are reporting that IDF soldiers shot two Arab terrorists taking part in attacks against Jewish visitors to Joseph's Tomb at Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria. The IDF allows Jews to visit the tomb of the Biblical figure only once a month for Rosh Chodesh, the new month festival, during night time. (Jews are forced to visit secretly Jewish holy sites on Jewish land. Terror attacks against Jews are under-reported by Israeli and international media!)

US will Benefit from Israel Tunnel Warfare

The US stepped up its security cooperation with Israel, pledging $40 million on research and development to find a solution for cross-border tunnels. Over 150 tunnels have been discovered on the US-Mexico border, used to smuggle illegal immigrants and drugs. Tunnels have also been used to attack US military personnel in South Korea.

Hamas Rats Out Rival Jihadists to Israel

Hamas has been passing to Israel information on rival Salafist jihadists in the Gaza Strip hoping the Jewish state will target those militants, an Egyptian security source told. The source said Hamas is fully aware that the information it provides to Egypt on Gazan Salafist rivals will be shared with the Jewish state.

Fair Trade and Decency Defeated BDS

Israel has won an important victory over the BDS when a boycott on the sale of Israeli products in a national supermarket chain COOP, which has 655 branches across Sweden, has been cancelled. "There was a great protest. A lot of people here are against boycotts," said Israeli Ambassador to Sweden Isaac Bachman. "We talked about fair trade. We explained that anyone who supports a boycott hurts the customers and the quality of the products. It resonated with people."

Gaza Must be Cleared of its Terror-Minded Population

The Hamas welcomed the shooting attack near the town of Dolev, in which 25-year-old Danny Gonen was murdered and another man was wounded. "We welcome the unique and heroic operation that took place near Ramallah," said Hamas spokesman Husam Badran. "We, and with us all our people, view with the utmost respect and appreciation those pure hands who held on to the resistance and turned their fire toward the occupier.” (After the UN made ‘balanced’ statements about war crimes committed during the last war in Gaza the PA smear against Israel continues - PA to seek war crimes charges against Israel at the Hague Court)

UNICEF - Stating the Obvious Facts, but No Condemnation!

According to UNICEF, at least 279 children have died since the latest violence escalated in March. Some children have been drawn directly into the fighting between armed groups in Yemen. UNICEF said 318 children have been recruited and used to man checkpoints or carry arms this year. (Why is ICC quiet - no threats of investigation? Where is global outcry of the international ‘caring’ anti-Semites, who are so quick to criticize and condemn Israel?)

Israel Could be Origin of Mankind

Four teeth found in the Qesem Cave (not far from Tel Aviv. Test results conclude that the fossils to be some 400 thousand-years-old. The significance of this is that it's possible that the origin of prehistoric man is in Israel, and not in East Africa. And an additional surprise is that prehistoric man was mainly vegetarian and not carnivorous.

Getting Ready for the Next Hypocritical Extension

A senior US official and Western diplomat downplayed a report from the Russian news agency Tass, which quoted a diplomat as saying talks are "virtually stalled." Sources said that the talks are at a delicate moment and that negotiations may have to be extended a few days past the June 30 deadline. (Procrastination is a game and all players are willingly playing it quite well!)

Druze Mob the Same as Arabs!

Druze mob from the Golan village of Majdal Shams ambushed an Israeli ambulance which was carrying seriously injured Syrian rebel fighters to hospital, seized the vehicle and beat them up. They attacked Israeli troops who tried to intervene. One Syrian died in hospital; the second is critical. (Some analysts are saying that Druse and anther Muslims sects are different than Arabs in their behavior and attitude, and even could be Israel’s ally. They are wrong!)

Spanish Town "Camp Kill Jews" Changes Its Name

Following a vote and regional government approval, Spanish town Castrillo Matajudious, which translates to "Camp Kill Jews," has officially changed its name back to Castrillo Mota de Judios ("Jews' Hill Camp"). Documents prove the town's original name was indeed "Jew's Hill Camp," but that it was changed to "Camp Kill Jews" in 1627, in the wake of a 1492 edict ordering Jews to convert to Christianity or face expulsion. (Why does it take so long to Europeans to correct anti-Semitic stupidity?)

Iran Comments Contradict Nuclear Deal

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work in the country for a long time and said sanctions imposed on it should be lifted as soon it reaches a final deal with major powers. Limitations on Iran's uranium enrichment capacity and research, rigorous verification systems, including for military sites, and restoring sanctions immediately if Tehran reneged on its obligations are key elements of a deal.

No Moral Dilemma

The parliament of Tajikistan passed a law annulling the citizenship of nationals fighting abroad with organizations such as the radical Islamic State group (ISIS). More than 400 Tajiks have joined the brutal ISIS insurgency in Iraq and Syria. (Tajik government has no problem with making its citizens-terrorists stateless. Technically, those who have joined the Islamic State are its citizens! Why are the Western countries still playing this idiotic ‘liberal’ game?)

Quotes of the Week:

“Now that the EU is subject to the same problem as Israel was, they don’t like it one bit. In contrast Israel received 10,000 migrants per million, Hungary and Germany received only 3200 and 900 per million respectively. Europe is going to struggle with this problem for years.” - Ted Belman - The EU is building a 109 mile long fence along Hungary’s southern border designed to keep migrants from crossing into EU territory. No international outcry or condemnation – the press is mute - unlike when Israel was building its security wall!
