Must Israel Always Give?
by Lawrence Uniglicht
Isn't it rather curious the only nation asked to give up anything tangible in any Middle East peace negotiations is Israel? Israel's land mass is about two- tenths of one percent the size of its surrounding mostly hostile Islamic Middle East neighbours, yet Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights and the eastern part of her capital Jerusalem remain on the table. Furthermore, Israel is asked to give so-called Palestinian Arabs a right of return to Israel, yet no Islamic Middle East regime offers a similar right to Jews evicted from their lands.
…Once Israel so asserts herself she will no longer be disrespected, she will no longer be expected to give and give with no tangible quid pro quo. Her point of view will be a lead talking point in any so-called peace negotiations. Ceding her land for peace, ceding her heritage for peace, will no longer be assumed, indeed will no longer be part of any negotiated package when nations attempt to stabilize, in fact civilize the Middle East.
…A strengthened confident Israel will no longer be viewed as an ccupier of poor Palestinian waifs once she asserts her unwillingness to surrender her sovereign territory, justifiably secured in 1967 in the process of defending herself against aggressive Arabs attempting to annihilate her.
…When Israeli leaders at last reinvent their own self-deprecating states of mind, begin to defend the essential character of the nation they were elected to steward, and demand respect from other nations, the Jewish State will shine as a beacon of strength, hope, and prosperity for this emerging third millennium.
Almost at the same time as Islamic Jihad – a close associate of the Al-Aksa Brigades (Fatah) - fired longer-distance missiles into an Israeli military base injuring 69 soldiers, Olmert has agreed to begin destroying Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria immediately following the US-sponsored international summit this coming November. – When will the stupidity and treason end?
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
There are many Christian, Muslim and multi-cultural countries. The immigration of non-Jews into Israel undermines the main principle behind the creation of a unique Jewish state. How many Jewish, Muslim or Gnostic citizens Vatican have?
Sharon to Bush: "Iraq is not the enemy, Iran is the enemy." According to Gen (res.) Lawrence Wilkinson, one of former American Secretary of State Colin Powell's top advisors: when Sharon understood that Bush was serious about invading Iraq, he asked to meet him, and relayed messages that "if you are going to upset the balance of power in the Middle East, this had better be done vis-à-vis the Iranians and not the Iraqis." "Bush, however, refused to heed Sharon's advice. When Sharon understood that the invasion of Iraq was inevitable, he promised not to make Israel's opposition to it known. (Some are still trying to blame Israel for the war in Iraq!)
Jewish History under PA. ISRAELI archaeologists discovered parts of an ancient drainage tunnel in Jerusalem that Jews had used to flee from the Holy City's Roman conquerors 2000 years ago. Eli Shukron of the Antiquities Authority said that the 70-metre stretch was discovered during excavations in the area of the City of David, the site of Jerusalem in ancient times, in what is now the PA controlled suburb of Silwan.
Holding Hand of the 'Friend'. The US State Department called for restrain following the Kassam rocket attack that left 67 Israeli soldiers wounded last Tuesday morning. State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters that the US "advised Israel to consider the impact its response would have on the peace process." (What process? With friends like this…)
Sentenced for Treason. A 56-year-old Israeli Arab citizen, Mohammad Khalaf, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on charges of treason. He was convicted of aiding the enemy in times of war, contacting a foreign agent and purchasing chemicals to aid Palestinian Authority terrorist gangs in producing explosive devices. (The same charges must be brought against Olmert and his self-hating mob!)
Arabs Murder ISM Activist - ISM Silent. An Arab activist, Akram Ibrahim Abu Sba, a member of the Israel-hating International Solidarity Movement (ISM) – an organization of American, Israeli and Arab volunteers which routinely interferes with IDF activities in Judea and Samaria, besides engaging in vandalism against Jews - was murdered by the Islamic Jihad terror gang this last, but the ISM has not issued a condemnation of the act. (Nothing can interrupt or stop blind anti-Semitic hate!)
Quote of the Week:
"When three unpopular leaders with practically no public support – Bush, Abbas and Olmert go into a summit where everyone wants to gain and only Olmert wants to yield, I say there is no greater danger to Israel than this." - MK Tzvi Hendel of the National Union party.
Knowing How to Play the Game. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said that his country would submit a complaint to the UN Security Council over the alleged IAF entry into Syrian airspace. (Israel must learn from her Arab/Muslim enemies how to play the bogus diplomatic and propaganda games!)
Arabs Way Toward Peace. Syria was reportedly calling up its reserve forces as its president Bashar Assad said he is working for peace with Israel, denying charges of channeling Iranian weapons to Lebanon's Hizbullah. Assad also denied that Damascus airport is being used by terrorists as a springboard to fight the US forces in Iraq.
Abbas: Elections not to Held. PA President Mahmoud Abbas said that neither the legislative elections nor the presidential elections would be held in the PA territories before the end of the Gaza coup perpetrated by Hamas. (Hamas was democratically elected by so-called Palestinians. Abbas is the perpetrator of the political coup!)
Result of Abuse of the Law of Return. Police have cracked a neo-Nazi ring composed of immigrants from the former Soviet Union operating in the Petah Tikva area. Police emphasized that all of the youths - except for one - were Israeli citizens who had made aliya under the Law of Return. (The law has to be revised and all non-Jews who have abused it must leave Jewish state.)
The Same Ugly Judophobic Stench! A UN conference, held at the European Parliament in Brussels, heard an array of speakers call for a boycott against Israel and strategize on ways to achieve its international isolation, during the first day of an event billed by organizers as a gathering to promote "Middle East peace". (Nothing has changed in Europe and in the UN for the past 60 years.) The 'International Conference of Civil Society in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace' has been organized by the UN's Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the (fake) Palestinian People. (The rights of Jews are irrelevant!)
No Respect, No Care. The Waqf Muslim authority, using heavy tractors, has so far excavated a trench 120-meters long and 1.5 meters deep, crushing fragments of monumental buildings, pottery and glazed tiles in their path. The trench runs through the northern and eastern parts of the 2,000-year old Upper Platform of Temple Mount, where the outer courts of the Jewish Temple were situated, including the Women's Court, until the Roman destruction of 70 C.E. (At the same time Olmert is considering transferring control of the Waqf to the PA causing more humiliation and destruction of Jewish history!)
Need to revisit the Law of Return.
An ex-Minister of the Interior in the Ukraine and board member of an anti-Semitic newspaper, the "Village News" (Silski Visti), was granted Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return. Yuri Lutsenko, a former Interior Minister of the Ukraine, received Israeli citizenship on July 22, 1999 - though he is not Jewish according to Jewish law.
Tuvia Lerner of Arutz-7's affiliate Russian language website Sedmoy Kanal [Channel Seven], who himself immigrated from the former Soviet Union some four decades ago, said, "At Amona, some of the Yassam special force policemen who were so violent against the youths were originally from Russia. One of the protestors said to one of them: "Come on, brother, we didn't come to fight each other" - to which the policeman answered, "I'm not your brother, you dirty Jew." The Jewish Agency has been known to encourage immigration to Israel in the former Soviet Union even among non-Jews.
