Make Israel Proud Sovereign Nation!
by Steven Shamrak
Israel must stop looking for approval from international anti-Semites and so-called friends. It will never get it! Since 1948 they have been undermining Israel’s independence and even its existence. Only by exercising self-respect and determination to remove enemy terror threats and reunite Jewish ancestral land will the Jewish people be able to live peacefully in Eretz-Israel!
Why is Israel constantly seeking approval and searching for unattainable high moral ground? No matter how hard Jews have been trying to get it - this is a futile exercise; we have never received any respect, understanding and appreciation of our aspirations and humane efforts in dealing with enemies from international anti-Semites.
Contraire, Israel is denigrated by the endless successive resolutions eagerly adopted by the vicious attacks from numerous anti-Israel organisations, as well as by Arab appeasing states - like the EU and BDS supporters, Oxfam, Amnesty International, the Red Cross and innumerable others!
Why does Israel have to prove its "right to exist"? No other country has this pathological need – this is a strategy for losers!
Always on the defence, Israel behaves as if it's done something wrong, by allowing others to accuse it of crimes it has never committed. Israel’s leadership is persistently unable to make a psychological transition from the historic scars of anti-Semitic persecution. It needs to shake off the shtetl mentality and start acting as a proud nation!
The Jewish leadership is unwilling and incapable of recognizing that Israel is a modern, highly developed sovereign state with a powerful and capable military. Does Israel have an overriding sense of a viable political and military strategy or clearly defined direction for deal with its adversaries? This absence of clearly articulated and identified national goals and lack of self-respect has robbed Israel of decisive victory in its last five conflicts in Lebanon and Gaza.
While engaging in endless military conflicts, Israel proudly announced that it trucks supplies to the enemy during the conflicts – adding and abetting the enemy! Israeli military gave advance notice to enemies in Gaza of its next military action, and even provides details about immanent targets. It is irrational behaviour – no army in the world acts like this during a military conflict!
Israel provides medical treatment to the enemy population, including the extended families of Abbas, and Khalid Meshal and Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, all of whom have openly declared their genocidal intent towards Israel and Jews. This behaviour also deifies any rational logic and comprehension!
Wars are not won by winning the high moral ground, which international anti-Semites will not allow Israel to attain anyway - they are won on the ground, by decisively defeating enemies and not having to replicate the same conflict over and over, and over! It is well known that Israel’s enemies, Arab and Muslim states, respect only strength and have contempt for display of weakness – that how they perceive Israel’s behaviour!
The most insane of all, was bringing the exiled PLO terrorists into our backyard, legitimizing them and laying the foundation for yet another Arab State on Jewish ancestral land.
By giving up Sinai, three times, ceding the Temple Mount, unilaterally withdrawing from Gaza, and most catastrophically signing the Oslo Accords for a delusion of peace, and many more so-called confidence building jesters Israel validates Albert Einstein’s famous quote: “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
By these bizarre displays of weakness, Israel only gives its enemies the hope and expectations that they will eventually be triumphant in destroying the Jewish state. This behaviour only encourages their perpetuating aggressions against Israel.
Jews are considered, even by their enemies, as smart people – this is not intelligent behaviour that one expects of an advanced military and industrial state! Jews need to change our shtetl mentality and stand as a proud nation and get rid of this incessant need for approval from others!
Likud needs several, 3 or 4, Zionist-minded defectors
from Blue and White party! Are any Zionists there?
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Jews have always been advisers, clever jesters, ministers to rulers in the Diaspora - but never had the power to make really important decisions! When something was done well and people were happy ‘kings’ took credit; otherwise, Jews were blamed for failures. Even now, having our own state, Jewish leadership is still unable to break this mental barrier and remaining remains in a 'galut’ mentality mind-frame! Jew-hate is a religion - regardless if a hater is Christian, Muslim, Democrat, Socialist, Communist or Nazi, intelligent or idiot! No rational response or justification is able to end it, or even change the mind of an Anti-Semite. Only strong, proud, confident and unapologetic Israel will!
Iran’s Terror Funding of Hamas
Israel seized $4 million that was transferred from Iran to the Hamas. The funds were intended to “develop Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, including the production of weapons and payment to the organization’s activists.
Defense Minister Naftali Bennett announced Thursday following a meeting of the IDF Higher Planning Council for Judea and Samaria that he has authorized the advance of plans for 1,800 new housing units in Jewish communities in the territories. “We are no longer in the discussion of evacuation and a freeze, but in the mode of expansion and construction,” Bennett said. (Hopefully, it is not just pre-election ploy!)
The ambassadors of Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK registered protest in their meeting on Thursday with Israel’s Dep National Security Adviser Reuven Aza in Jerusalem, voicing “their grave concerns about announcements of the Israeli authorities regarding new settlement units in the occupied West Bank & East-Jerusalem, particularly in E1 area, Givat HaMatos & Har Homa.” (Do they care about occupation of Tibet or persecution of Muslims in East China? What about West Papua or occupation of Kurdistan by five Muslim countries?)
Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman, said Blue and White leader Benny Gantz was not yet ready to be prime minister and appeared to be challenging Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the job, further whittling down the already long-shot prospects of a ruling coalition being formed after the third elections.
Quote of the Week:
“Our Palestinian land is from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) sea. I dare any Palestinian, any senior Palestinian official, or any Palestinian leader to reduce the Palestinian map to the West Bank and Gaza!” - Tawfiq Tirawi, a senior Fatah member. He indicated that the 1967 borders were only a temporary phase on the way to reclaiming the entirety of the land, and that using the 1967 lines as a basis for negotiations is deception because “that is what would be acceptable to the world” and only “can be an intermediate statement.” – He said nothing new! The same was said many times by Yasser Arafat and many other leaders of fake Palestinians! They did not and will not accept any peace plan!
True Meaning of Jewish Self-Determination.
(voice of Internet)
The leaders of Israel since 1948 have become so hooked on world opinion and approval of the anti-Semitic world. They ask countries to recognize our existence... even the states that are at war with Israel, as well as terrorist groups and organizations!
Our existence is a FACT - Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel has been established for 3,000 years as a people living in Israel and practicing the Holy Book, the Torah, in the same land of our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Our existence in the Land of Israel is a blessed decree from G-d!
The reality in all of this folly, the need to have others recognize our existence, is that we have to first and foremost recognize our own existence as a Sovereign People Living with G-d's Blessings and Commandments in our own Land.
When Jews do this then there is no need to curry favour for others and beg them to recognize us as a People in Our Land. It does not matter if they do or don't!
It is not important whether they have an embassy in Jerusalem or no embassy at all. What matters is that we do recognize who we are, and this sets the example for others to RESPECT us, even if they not necessarily LOVE us. Love is not important. LOVE is for us to practice respect and self-respect among our own People following the Mitzvah, (Commandment) Ahavot Yisrael (love of our fellow Jews). This is the meaning of SELF DETERMINATION and we should not let OTHERS DETERMINE OUR life and existence!
The world will come to us when they need our superior technological products and systems to better their health and living standards. And we will sell these to them if it does not compromise our security. This trade is the recognition that we have earned from the world as a "light unto the Nations" and anything else is just superfluous. Normal states, companies and individuals will give Israel and Jews respect - others will limit relation to trade only, as a necessity. (I always say, “nobody respects those who have no self-respect”!)
