Peace with Israel is Extortion Business for Saudis
The Biden administration is seriously considering four policy changes that Saudi Arabia is demanding of the US in order to normalize relations with Israel. They are:
1. Formalize a defense alliance between Riyadh and Washington.
2. Help the Saudis develop nuclear power for civilian purposes. (With so much oil and gas why do they want nuclear power?)
3. Increase bilateral trade.
4. Stop the heavy criticism the Gulf state has absorbed from the Biden administration since its government was accused by American officials of being behind the assassination of a fierce critic of the regime, Jamal Kashoggi, in Turkey in 2018.
“If we make peace with Saudi Arabia,” Netanyahu told CNN in February, it would “effectively bring the Arab-Israeli conflict to an end.” The process of assessing the Saudis’ demands is expected to take several months. (Saudis are following the footsteps of Egypt and Jordan – two anti-Israel countries, which have been benefiting from the US aid, after they signed a worthless piece of paper. The Saudis support of the fake Palestinians is just a smoke screen, used to get what the kingdom really wants.)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
When narrow-minded and selfish people in the government of Israel advance different personal and political agendas, but do not care about Jewish national vision or the future of the Jewish people, our enemies are laughing at us!
French Parliament Rejected Fake Apartheid
France’s National Assembly rejected a motion by the communists to denounce “Israel’s institutionalization of an apartheid regime.” The resolution failed to pass, with 199 against and 71 in favour. The non-binding resolution also called on France’s executive branch to recognize the “State of Palestine” and to introduce a resolution at the UN to enact “a strict arms embargo” on Israel. (Zionism is the only national independence movement that the anti-Semitic Left hates.)
Illegal Arab School is Demolished
A Palestinian Arab school, built illegally at the Herodian Nature Reserve and Heritage Site in Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, was demolished by the IDF Civil Administration. The structure was so dilapidated, it practically collapsed by itself in a few minutes. The Regavim movement stated: "This building is only one out of more than 100 illegal school buildings that were built in Judea and Samaria as a way for the Palestinians to take over open areas. This enforcement is the first step in restoring law and order to the area." (Why was it allowed to be built on the Jewish land?)
European Antisemites Hate Proud Jews
The European Union has cancelled plans to mark Europe Day in Israel, after the Israeli government selected National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir (Otzma Yehudit) to represent the Jewish state. In response, a spokesperson for Ben-Gvir said: “The minister believes that even if EU representatives do not endorse his political views, Israel is a democracy, and in democracy different views are permitted.”
Return of Terrorists' Bodies - Stupidity is Unlimitless!
National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir criticized Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Friday for returning the bodies of three Palestinian terrorists who attacked an army post, calling it a "serious mistake that will cost us dearly. He added that "It is still not too late to lead a powerful and offensive security policy." He further said that he will abstain from voting in the Knesset until the government changes its direction and implements the promised policy.
Israel Seized ISIS and Hamas Crypto Accounts
Israel has seized 189 crypto accounts at the crypto exchange Binance since 2021, including two linked to the Islamic State (ISIS), and dozens of others owned by Palestinian Arab firms connected to Hamas.
Al Jazeera Journalist was Killed by Accident
The US Security Coordinator has submitted a new report on the killing of an Al Jazeera journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, confirmed the USSC’s previous finding that she was killed in May 2022 during an exchange of fire between the IDF and terrorists in Jenin unintentionally. (Maybe now Al Jazeera will stop its smear campaign against Israel, though that is doubtful.).)
Dee Family is Avenged
Israeli security forces killed three terrorists and wounded four others during a gun battle in the PA controlled city of Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria. Two of the terrorists killed, Hassan Katnani and Ma'ad Masri, have been linked to the murder of three dual UK-Israeli citizens, Lucy Dee and her daughters Maia and Rina, in a drive-by shooting attack in the Jordan Valley last month.
Israel Must not Wait for Nuclear Armed Iran
Defense Minister Yoav Gallant revealed that Iran currently has enough enriched uranium for five nuclear weapons. Recently a top US defense official said that Iran could weaponize the uranium in less than two weeks. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had reported that Tehran had accumulated enough enriched uranium, at the high but still non-weaponized levels, for four nuclear weapons. The Mossad reported that Iran's goal had always been a minimum of a five-nuclear weapon arsenal, which it is now closer than ever to achieving.
Terror Funds to Victims of Terrorism
For the second time, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich ordered the transfer of 3.2 million shekels from the Palestinian Authority's funds to victims of terrorism. This follows the 138.8 million shekels that were transferred in January to the victims of terrorist acts in order to fulfill a court ruling from the past.
Enemies United - Iran, Hamas and Islamic Jihad Meeting
Iran’s president, Ebrahim Raisi, met top leaders from the Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror groups in Damascus. Among the Palestinians in attendance was Islamic Jihad leader Ziad Nakhaleh, who is based in Syria, and Khalil al-Hayya, a senior member in the Gaza-ruling Hamas. Among the Palestinians in attendance was Islamic Jihad leader Ziad Nakhaleh, who is based in Syria, and Khalil al-Hayya, a senior member in the Gaza-ruling Hamas. “Today more than ever, the unity and cohesion of the resistance forces, the region and the Islamic world is necessary to accelerate the defeat of the Zionist regime and the liberation of the holy Quds and the sovereignty of the Palestinians over their destiny,” Raisi said.
Media Ignored Will of 600,000 Israelis
Every time there’s a leftist rally against democratic judicial reform, the media amplifies it as loudly as possible. But when 600,000 Israelis rallied for judicial reform. (The media is leftist – democracy means voting the way they want, not the actual will of the people.)
Quotes of the Week:
"An entire country is being held under threat here. We are captives of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. We continue not to take the steps that are supposed to lead to the deterrence and defeat of Hamas. Netanyahu does not have the courage to instruct the IDF to win." - MK Tzvika Foghel (Otzma Yehudit), chairman of the Knesset National Security Committee.
After 104 Rockets - another Gutless Ceasefire
by Lauren Marcus
After Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists in the Gaza Strip launched more than 100 rockets towards civilian communities in southern Israel in a one-day span, the IDF announced that it had reached a ceasefire with the terror groups.
At least 12 people in Israel were wounded by the onslaught.
Alon Davidi, the mayor of Sderot, a city near the Gaza Strip, which has been the frequent target of bombings, said that the truce encourages terror and that Israel’s response to the rocket fire had not been decisive enough.
“This is a serious mistake,” Davidi said to Ynet, speaking about the ceasefire. “There is a war going on between the Gaza Strip and Sderot, and the government is adopting a policy in which it lets terrorists off the hook and protects the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. This policy is too lax, and we will pay a price for it this summer."
“It’s funny that the terrorists shoot to kill us, yet the government ties the hands of the IDF and does not allow them to harm the terrorists themselves,” he added.
“The terrorist commanders need to be eliminated, but it seems like they signed an under-the-table agreement that the IDF won’t kill them.”
The IDF struck 16 Hamas sites in Gaza in response to rockets. The IDF struck an area that was used as a Hamas training camp as well as a weapons storage facility and a weapons manufacturing factory. (Terrorist fire at Israel any time they want. As usual, Israel retaliated by hitting an empty building, and later announced a 'truce'. For how long will this gutless charade go on? Reclaim the Jewish land - remove the enemy populating from Gaza now!)
