Old Game of Peace Must be Abandoned!

by Steven Shamrak

1. Even before the establishment of Israel it was clear that the Arabs are not interested in peace and friendship with their Jewish neighbours. Their supporters, the United Kingdom and France, were actively encouraging Muslim countries to prevent the creation of the Jewish state. The destruction of the Jewish state has always been their aim since 1948! How many more Jewish lives must be sacrificed and generational suffering is needed to prove that all past and current peace plans are flawed?

2. It has been always known that the ‘unique’ help the professional, so-called Palestinian refugees have been receiving from international anti-Semites, directly or through the UN, is to facilitate the removal of Israel, the only Jewish state, from the map!

3. It is common knowledge that most of the international aid, many billions of dollars each year, given to the PA have been pocketed by the corrupt PA leadership and spent in support of terrorism against Jews in Israel – be it training, financing production and smuggling of weapons and rockets, indoctrinating kids with hate toward Jews in the UN sponsored schools as well as indoctrinating the general population, and direct financial support provided to terrorists and their families!

4. For seventy years the same inept peace plans, even ridiculous ones like the partition plan of 1947, were suggested, signed and ignored again and again! Isn’t it time to return to basic Zionist ideals, which are actually in line with the initial resolution of the League of Nations? The Israeli Government needs to start working toward planning and implementing the Jewish National goal.

5. Jews and the Israeli government cannot change the nature of the international high-ranking political anti-Semitic structure! The only thing we can do is to change our own attitude and shake off the faulty beliefs and victim mentality. “They won’t let us” until we believe in it – we just must do it!

6. Israel did it during the Independence War, in 1967 – the Six Days war and 1973 – the Yom Kippur war, and on many other occasions like saving hostages in Entebbe, and bombing Iraqi and Syrian nuclear facilities.

7. The Government of Israel and Jewish leadership must change their attitude of appeasing and their ‘co-operative’ mode with the enemy, and chose the path toward securing the Jewish national future.

8. Yes, we can do it!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Israel must stop the politics of ambiguity and appeasement of fake friends. It has never really worked for Jews! Any independent country has the right to say where other states are allowed to open their embassies or consulates. The US speculation about opening a consulate for the enemies of Israel in Jerusalem is designed to undermine the sovereignty and legitimacy of the Jewish state! Stand proud and learn to say “NO” to international Jew-Haters!

IAEA Chief Visit to Israel

International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Rafael Grossi arrived in Israel and will meet with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. The UN watchdog's report estimates that Iran's stockpile of enriched uranium has grown to more than 18 times the limit laid down in Tehran's 2015 deal with world powers. (Is it the end of the game for Iran or is game still on?)

Israel-UAE Free-Trade Deal

It was the fastest free-trade agreement negotiated in Israel’s history. Signed on May 31 in Dubai between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, it comes only two years after they signed a historic pact establishing diplomatic relations and is a milestone in Israel’s acceptance into the region. The agreement will remove tariffs on 96% of goods between the two countries on everything from food to jewellery to medical equipment. Other benefits include protection of intellectual property. (Anything is possible when there is a political will!)

Long-Distance Attack Simulation

The IDF reported that dozens of fighter jets conducted aerial drills over the Mediterranean Sea to practice a long-range flight and striking distant targets. The exercise practiced a broad, synchronized maneuver in the depths of enemy territory, including aerial refuelling and striking distant targets. (Is it the last drill before striking Iranian nuclear targets?)

Israel Must Ban the US Consulate in Jerusalem

Following reports that American plans to open a consulate to the Palestinian Authority in Jerusalem had been shelved, anti-Semites of the US State Department have clarified that they remain "committed to opening a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem." ([If the US really wanted a consulate to help the “Palestinians”, they’d locate it where they do not need to go through terror-preventing checkpoints perhaps Ramallah. Placing it in Jerusalem is directly a statement that the US does not recognize Jerusalem as 100% Israeli, in violation of the US 1995 Jerusalem act, not just Israeli policies.)

Laser Missile Shield $2 per Interception

A laser-based air defense system that Israel hopes to deploy starting next year to neutralize enemy rockets and drones will cost just $2 per interception. Israel currently depends on defensive systems that launch interceptor missiles costing tens of thousands of dollars. "Today they (the enemy) can invest tens of thousands of dollars in a rocket and we will invest $2 on the electricity for intercepting that rocket," Bennett said.

Hamas Taxing Goods Coming from the PA

The Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip has decided to impose a new tax, 16 percent, already known as the “Hamas Tax”, on goods coming from the Palestinian Authority (PA). Hamas sees itself as an independent state in every respect and separate even from the Palestinian Authority. (Enemies of Israel have already begun creating a '3-states solution’ to the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Re-uniting Eretz-Israel is the only solution.)

Jewish Man Arrested for Using Toy Gun in Self-Defense

A man and his 13-year-old son were threatened with a knife by an Arab gang in a JNF forest near Rosh Haayin. The man took his son's toy gun and place it in the belt of his pants. This caused the Arabs to retreat. Several hours later, police officers arrived at the man's home, but to his astonishment, instead of collecting testimony from him, he was taken for questioning. (When will Israeli police stop harassing Jews and start dealing with the Arab Israeli Jew-hating criminality?)

Biden Suspended Aid to Sudan

The Biden administration has suspended Abraham Accords assistance to Sudan. The United States also suspended foreign assistance unrelated to the Abraham Accords, the normalization agreements between Israel and four Arab states, because of the coup. The Biden administration expected Israel to join in the call for a return to a democratically elected government (Biden does not stop trade with non-democratic China). The Trump administration in its final months brokered normalization agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Bahrain, as well as Sudan. The full agreement with Sudan has yet to come to full fruition because of instability in the country. (Biden is trying to undermine the Abraham Accords, the great achievement of President Trump which changed the idiotic political 'game’ in the ME, any way he can.)

Quote of the Week:

"Israel prefers the diplomatic route to rule out any possibility of Iran developing a nuclear weapon, but maintains the right to act against Iran to defend itself and stop its nuclear program if the international community fails to do so within a relevant amount of time." - Naftali Bennett, Israeli Prime Minister - Iran has clearly stated that Israel is the target. Yes, Israel has the right of self-defence! Does it have the government with the guts to remove the threat?

UNRWA vs. UNHCR – The Shocking Numbers!

(This is 2018 information, but little has changed)

Both UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) and the UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) are mandated by the UN to aid refugees, but there are some significant differences between how these two organizations spend their money, and thus, how successful and efficient they are at using that money to end the refugee crisis...

If one defines success as resolving the refugee’s problems, then UNRWA can only be defined as a complete failure.

UNRWA does not try or want to resettle the refugees, nor help the refugees move forward with their lives in a new host country, where some are already 3rd and 4th generation UN welfare recipients.

UNRWA maintains the refugee definition, even for those living in refugee camps within the Palestinian Authority.

UNRWA has 4X more staff members than UNHCR, although UNRWA deals with 6X fewer refugees.

UNRWA spends twice as much per refugee each year than UNHCR does – and has never resettled even a single refugee.

UNHCR: Refugees can be resettled in any third country, with the goal to help them get on with their lives. Children of refugees are not supposed to be considered refugees.

UNRWA: There are 4.681 million Arab refugees; however, only 20,000 according to a classified US State Department report.

UNHCR: There are 15.4 million refugees; plus 800,000 awaiting refugee status and 12 million stateless people w/o refugee status for a total of 28.2 million refugees.

UNRWA: $1 Billion USD; Number of Countries: 5;                Staff: 29,000

UNHCR: $3.32 Billion USD; Number of Countries: 123;       Staff: 7,200

Conclusion: Shut down UNRWA and transfer the responsibility for resettling fake Palestinian refugees to UNHCR.
