Zionist Israeli Minorities Speak out for Israel

by Ariel Ben Solomon

Representatives from minority communities in Israel staunchly came out in support of the country as a Jewish and democratic state, at a human rights event held by the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu.

The conference titled Zionist Conference for Human Rights, was held in front of a packed room at the Zionist Organization of America House in Tel Aviv.

Individuals from the Muslim, Druse, Bedouin, and Christian Arab communities spoke about Israel’s role in defending human rights, in a mixed crowd that also included a rabbi, a Kibbutznik and a homosexual…

“Anyone who wants human rights in the Middle East has only one option - to connect to the Jewish state that preserves human rights,” said Ronen Shoval, founder and chairman of Im Tirtzu.

One objective of the conference is “to break the monopoly of human rights” that the “extremist anti-Zionist forces” currently have on the issue and to share the term, “human rights” with the entire political spectrum, he said.

Anet Haskia, an Arab-Israeli Muslim from Acre, declared, “I am a proud Zionist,” and that she is against a Palestinian state and a division of the country. “There are a lot like me,” she added and said her daughter is the first Muslim to be enlisted in the Golani Infantry Brigade.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

For many centuries, so-called Middle East conflicts, including some in Africa, have been fueled by Arab tribal and inter-Islamic theological hate, as well as by personal ambition of many Muslim tyrants. Creation of Israel has been actually a positive event, causing unification of the Muslim mob against Jews and other infidels - mainly Christians. As a result, it has reduced the number of Muslims killed by wars between Shiites against Sunnis, like the one we are witnessing in Syria and Iraq; state conflicts as the Iran-Iraq and Iraq-Kuwait wars and endless stream of tribal skirmishes!

US Sold Out Israel Again

Surrendering to PA opposition, Secretary of State John Kerry has stepped back from the US security plan for Israeli troops to guard the Jordan Valley border - in favour of US forces. The PA won’t grant Israeli West Bank corridors for access to the Jordan Valley. At the same time, the US agrees to an express train link between the West Bank and Gaza under Palestinian control across the Israeli Negev - with no access to Israeli monitors. (What right the US has agree or disagree to anything on behalf of any sovereign state? Betrayal of Israel is a systematic policy of the US governments!)

Self-Hating Jews Disappointed - Hareidies Serve well in IDF

Nahal Haredi (Netzach Yehuda), the IDF's Haredi-religious combat brigade, has made IDF history by winning the Chief of Staff's Prize for the first time. The brigade is also showing a sharp increase in enlistment, despite the ongoing political tension over haredi IDF service. The prize was awarded for the unit's extraordinary achievements and operational creativity. (Self-hating Jewish left tried to discredit religious Jews for not serving in the IDF. Leftists would do anything to undermine the unity of the Jewish people!)

Even Putin Backs Israel's Security Needs

A pact was forged between Moscow and Jerusalem to ensure Israel's security during a private meeting. Putin even made it clear to Netanyahu that Russia will not do anything to harm Israel. He added that despite the close relationship between Israel and the US - with whom Russia's relationship is strained - Russia would nonetheless stand by Israel's side and offer aid in the event of a conflict against it, according to the report. The report contradicts evidence indicating that Russia is involved in arming some of Israel's most formidable threats, including Iran, Syria, and Egypt. (Like they say “Money does not smell”)

Fake Hunger Strike and Israel Legal System Stupidity

A high-profile terrorist, Samer al-Issawi, who went on a 260-day hunger strike in an Israeli jail has been released. He was originally captured by the Israeli army in Ramallah in 2002 and was released in 2011 alongside with 1,025 other PA prisoners, as part of a parole deal in exchange for the release of Gilad Shalit. But less than a year later, Issawi was rearrested at the West Bank border, for allegedly violating the terms of his parole.

Self-Hating Jewish Political Feminism

Feminist Knesset Member Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid) is extremely tough on sex offenses, but apparently on the condition that they are not perpetrated by Arabs against Jews. MK Kariv said that she has submitted a bill calling for severe punishment of people who upload sexual photos and videos to the internet, with the intent of shaming women and girls who appear in the photos. Just a week before, she exhibited precisely the opposite approach to sex crimes, when the Knesset's Interior Committee convened a discussion of the incessant sexual harassment of female students at the Mount Scopus campus of Hebrew University. The harassment is carried out by Arabs from the adjoining village of Isawiya.

Israel Needs to Clear Enemies from Gaza

The newest Palestinian terrorist weapon is an Iranian copy of the Austrian single-shot Steyr 50 caliber assassin’s rifle. It was used by a trained sniper to murder Saleh Abu-Tayyel Tuesday on Dec. 24. The marksman belonged to the Hamas-commanded Popular Resistance Committees. He was assisted by a Jihad Islami scout who helped him position the 12.5 kilo, 1.37 m long rifle. (Clear Gaza as the first step of implementation of the Sinai Option. This is the only way to bring peace to Israel!)

Bigots Love ‘Palestinian’ Label

Foreign Language Film nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards have determined nine features that will advance to the next round of voting. The list includes the Palestinian feature "Omar," directed by Hany Abu-Assad.

South Koreans Hope to Emulate Israel's Start-up Model

Hi-tech start-up founders from the Asian nation participate in a month-long program at Tel Aviv University. The pairing of South Korean start-up leaders and Israeli entrepreneurs reflects a growing desire for collaborations between the hi-tech communities in both countries. (Countries without ingrained anti-Semitic tradition benefit from Jewish know-how!)

US Citizens not Safe in Israel

The Embassy of the United States in Tel Aviv announced that US citizen employees of the embassy and their families are prohibited from using mini-bus shared taxi services in central Israel. The temporary prohibition is in effect as the embassy will assess the security implications of the December 22 bomb attack on a public bus in Bat Yam. (Jews have been living under this life-threatening condition, in their own land, for too long! The only way to improve safety in Israel is to remove from Jewish land the blood-thirsty, terror effectuated fake nation.)

Jews Attacked anti-Semites in Lyon

French police arrest activists of a Jewish organization on suspicion of assaulting two men tracked down on social networks for performing anti-Semitic gestures. The Jewish Defense League (LDJ – Ligue de Défense Juive) posted a message on its Twitter account, allegedly claiming responsibility for the attacks: "The little Nazis are no longer at ease!” (When “Enough is Enough” - time for Jews to act! The first assault took place on December 21 in Lyon. French police are never so efficient against the anti-Semitic actions of Nazis or Moslims. I wonder why?)

Arafat was not Poisoned

A Russian investigation into the death of Yasser Arafat has found that the ‘Palestinian’ leader was not killed by radiation (The results support a French investigation), launching accusations from PA officials and Swiss scientists that the findings are political. Vladimir Uiba, the head of Russia's Federal Medical and Biological Agency, said that Arafat died of natural causes. (AIDS is a sickness and the natural cause too!)

Quotes of the Week:

"If I am proved correct, the Germans will call me a German, the Swiss will call me a Swiss citizen, and the French will call me a great scientist. If relativity is proved wrong, the French will call me a Swiss, the Swiss will call me a German, and the Germans will call me a Jew." - In 1921, when Albert Einstein presented a paper on his then-infant Theory of Relativity at the Sorbonne - Relativity theory exposes/explains the attitude of anti-Semites for Jews. ‘Jewishness’ of an achievement is often irrelevant when it can be used to boost bigot’s National pride.

Political Rights in Palestine

Eli E. Hertz

The Mandate for Palestine, a legally binding document under international law, clearly differentiates between political rights - referring to Jewish self-determination as an emerging polity - and civil and religious rights, referring to guarantees of equal personal freedoms to non-Jewish residents as individuals and within select communities. Not once are Arabs as a people mentioned in the Mandate for Palestine. At no point in the entire document is there any granting of political rights to non-Jewish entities (i.e., Arabs). Article 2 of the Mandate for Palestine explicitly states that the Mandatory should:

“Be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine, irrespective of race and religion.”

Political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the League of Nations in four other mandates - in Lebanon and Syria (The French Mandate), Iraq and later Trans-Jordan (The British Mandate). Political rights in Palestine (including Trans-Jordan) were granted to Jews only
