Mentality of the Former Masters.

by Steven Shamrak.

The following communication reveals the deep-seated hatred of ‘the master’ toward the former slaves. This attitude and twisted mentality toward Israel and Jews can be easily observed in the behavior of the French, Russians, Turks… and even some Americans. These former rulers of the Jewish people appear unable to accept Jews as equals; thus they are incapable of taking an objective view on the Arab-Israel conflict and allowing Israel a free hand in dealing with her enemies. They are not willing to accept Jews, nor are they able to accept Israel as a free and equal nation. They have been doing everything possible to sabotage and minimize our successes both before and since Israel declared her independence.

Unfortunately, many Jews still are not ready to be free. We must stop bowing down to those self-centered, egotistical, puffed-up idiots who still think that they are the rulers of the world. We have no choice but to truly accept our freedom which is long overdue! We have to start doing what is right for Jews first - right now!

I recently received an email from a Turkish man who is on my mailing list. His correspondence started with a semi-polite assertion, saying that Israel’s aggression is the cause of Arab antagonism and terror. The following is an extract of the communication after my initial reply:

My Turkish ‘Friend’: Mr.. Shamrak, all I can say is you are impossible man (because I stood up to his initial non-factual, anti-Israel conjectures), now I can understand why you will never have peace on Middle East… I am proud of who I am and what I am. We are the conquerors (Turks), now somebody else is turn (it goes around). USA will go down sooner or later...

My Reply: You wrote: "I am proud of who I am and what I am." - But, Jews must not?

My Turkish ‘Friend’: Yes, I am proud, because we were never slaved to any nation, can you say the same thing? Just look at yourself in the mirror you will see the white wash.

My Reply: You wrote:  "we were never enslaved" – You still are enslaving millions of Armenians and Kurds. You still deny the genocide of the Armenians in 1915.  You are not only denying freedom to the Kurds in Turkey, but have invaded Northern Iraq and are killing them over there (I did not want to go into the details before and embarrass him), so do not preach morality to anyone, and in particular to the Jews!”

My Turkish ‘Friend’: People like you deserves what Hitler did. And now I understand why he did. Who knows may be it was a mistake saving you Jews from Spanish torture and killing. You have no morality.

My Reply: “I guess, this is an 'apology' for the genocide of 1 or 1.5 million of Armenians.  The genocide that opened the door to the Holocaust!  If you want to see the face of evil, please, look in the mirror at any time.” (I receive no more messages from him.)

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Kadima, as the Shinui party before it, is a political ploy of Israel's left wing. The same kind of self-hating Jews were eager and willing participants in the destruction of Jewish heritage in the former Soviet Union. They are doing exactly the same in Israel now!

Hamas' Qassam Brigades have declared an end to a ceasefire with Israel. I did not notice that we had one, did you?

Kadima Without Future. Key Kadima MK, Avigdor Itzchaky, doubts his party's future. He has expressed his doubts about the party's future and the ability of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to lead the party, and has stated that the public does not trust or support the government. (It is the second time, in recent history, that a ‘one season party’ has come to power in Israel to undermine the future of the Jewish people. Let us hope that this time Israeli voters have learned their lesson!)

Meeting was Fruitless and Useless. The three-way talks between U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Israeli Prime Minster Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have failed, as was expected, to produce any tangible result. After the meeting, Ms. Rice appeared alone before the waiting press and did not take any questions. Keen to assert that the U.S. was still in charge, the statement read out by Ms. Rice said, "They [Mr. Abbas and Mr. Olmert] reiterated their desire for American participation and leadership in facilitating efforts…” (It has always been about America and her interests. Israel’s security is being disregarded and the interests and the rights of the Jews are always betrayed and ignored! Arabs are continuously rejecting the right of Israel to exist and still are occupying Jewish lands. But it is Israel that is humiliated and pressured to make self-destructive concessions!)

Quote of the Week:

“Peace hopes fade after US and Israel agreed to shun new Palestinian coalition.” – Headline, – Still the same anti-Israel rhetoric in the anti-Semitic press! What about the PA coalition’s non-recognition of Israel and its joint sponsorship of terrorism?

The First ‘Positive’ Result of Fatah-Hamas Unity. Two Kassam rockets exploded near Kibbutz Magen east of Gaza, and two others landed near Sderot. The Abu A-Rish Brigades, a terrorist group affiliated with the Fatah movement headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, said it was behind Kassam rocket attacks a week ago. (Both Fatah and Hamas are terrorist organizations. They should be treated the same way by Israel and the world!)

UN panel questions Israel. A United Nations anti-racism panel has questioned Israel's policy on preserving non-Jewish holy sites. This is despite the statement that: "Most holy places are also considered as antiquities sites," that Israel made in a 2005 submission. (Muslim countries and the PA are not subjected to such humiliating scrutiny!) "They did not contact us. They are working on their own," - Waqf director Adnan Husseini (Isn’t that how Jewish heritage is been destroyed by Islamic Waqf for years with no accountability to Israel or scrutiny from any UN committee? Why is the UN not interested in saving the holiest Jewish site?)

Desecrated Jewish Objects. For the third time this month alone, sacred Jewish objects have been vandalized and desecrated by Arabs and left-wing activists in Hevron over the Sabbath. Residents discovered dozens of pages of Psalm books that had been torn apart and scattered on the road near the Sephardic Jewish cemetery close to Hevron’s Tel Rumeida neighborhood. Tel Rumeida has been targeted by left-wing groups for removal and is the site of frequent provocations. The previous week, the Tomb of Ruth and Jesse (King David’s grandmother and father) was vandalized. The eternal light there was destroyed and the holy ark was damaged by vandals attempting to pry it open to reach the Torah scrolls contained therein. (No International condemnations! No action from the Israeli government! What a shameful indifference!)

Muslims Do Lie! An Iranian state news agency used the Photoshop program to manipulate photos in order to back up its claims that the US was behind a spate of bombings in southeast Iran. Little Green Footballs, the blog of Charles Johnson which called attention to the manipulated photos by a Reuters journalist during the Lebanon war, said: "A close look shows that many elements of this picture are cloned over and over".

Usual Fake Guarantees. Disregarding Moscow’s guarantees, Syria has delivered Russian-made SA-18 "Grouse" Igla 9K38 anti-aircraft missiles to the Lebanese Hezballah.  These surface-to-air heat-seeking missiles are designed to shoot down low-flying planes and helicopters at a range of up to 5,200 meters and altitude of 3,500 meters. (Russia made a similar guarantee about the Iranian nuclear program!)

Saving Lives of the Enemies. More Arab Palestinians are entering Israel on health grounds. 90% of the applicants are granted permits when the reason is medical. “We issued 81,000 permits to Palestinians for entry into Israel for health reasons in 2006, a rise of 61 percent from 2005,” You won't see this reported in the Jew hating press. Let me understand this...the Arabs want to kill all the Jews, but they don't mind running to them when they're in trouble.

Statehood for Arab Palestinians?

by Jeff Jacoby. (Boston Globe)

The wonder is not that the Palestinian Authority seethes with violence and instability; there are other places too where bloodshed is the daily fare. The wonder is not that the Palestinians, who receive copious amounts of international aid - more than $1.2 billion last year from Western governments alone - channel so much of their resources into weapons and warfare. The wonder is that so many voices still push for a Palestinian state.

But has any population ever been less suited for statehood than the Palestinians? From the terrorists they choose as leaders to the jihad promoted in their schools, their culture is drenched in violence and hatred. Each time the world has offered them sovereignty - an offer that the Kurds or the Chechens or the Tibetans would leap at - the Palestinians have opted instead for bloodshed and rejectionism.
