They Clearly State Their Intention!

Enemies of Israel have not changed their goal. It remains the same since 1948 - destruction of the Jewish state - it is still the Phased Plan of Arab and PA leadership! Israel needs to returns the Zionist ideology, which was supported by both sides of the politics during establishment of the state. Only by its national agenda will Israel and Jews be able to win and end this war, and bring peace to the region.

Even during the so-called peace process enemies of Israel are unashamedly clear and vocal about their intentions:

“If all of you (Arab States) will fight Israel, we are in favor. Palestinians will not fight alone because they don't have the ability.” - Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority Chairman, Al-Hayat Al Jadida, Palestinian Media Watch, July 6, 2010

“This is our plan for this stage - to liberate the West Bank and Gaza, without recognising Israel's right to a single inch of land, and without giving up the Right of Return for a single Palestinian refugee…” “Our plan for this stage is to liberate any inch of Palestinian land, and to establish a state on it. Our ultimate plan is (to have) Palestine in its entirety. I say this loud and clear so that nobody will accuse me of employing political tactics. We will not recognise the Israeli enemy.” - Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, Hamas leader, in an interview on Future News TV, MEMRI, June 15, 2010.

“We have one enemy. All our arrows and all our efforts should be aimed in a single direction - to conduct resistance against the settlement and the occupation, and to repel the Israeli injustice done to our people.” - Mahmoud Al-Habbash, PA Minister of Religious Endowments. This sermon was delivered on Palestinian Authority TV, MEMRI, February 8, 2010.

“Surely, the day will come when the nations of the region will witness the destruction of the Zionist regime... when the destruction happens will depend on how the Islamic nations approach the issue.” - Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran, remarked during a meeting with the President of Mauritania, AFP, January 26, 2010.

“We will never recognise Israel or cease to fight for our land. Our battle against Israel is one of resistance to occupation.” - Khalid Mashaal, Hamas Political Chief, Address to “The Decline of the Zionist Regime” conference, Tehran University. Press TV, May 27, 2008.

“There is no doubt that Israel was collapsing and would not last much longer. The resistance (forces) of the Palestinian people and other anti-Zionist (forces) will not about quickly finish the task and crush Israel’s spider-like regime, so that (Israel’s) 60th anniversary celebrations will become a prelude to its demise.” - Editorial in Jomhouri-ye Eslami (Iran), May 11, 2008.

Symptomatically, international press has shown no interest in exposing genocidal tendencies of enemies of Israel. Quite opposite, all efforts are made to portray Israel as an unwilling partner in the peace process!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Often, after I criticised actions or inactions of US presidents (Obama recently) or Muslims/Arab countries and Islamists, I am called “racist” by some of my readers. I believe that people deserve to be respected for who they are! At the same time, people deserve and must be exposed for whatever evil they do or cause by deliberately avoiding to take necessary steps to prevent it. I often criticise Israeli governments and Jewish leadership - does this make me an anti-Semite?

When Words Contradict Deeds

The US blocked Israel's participation in the Global Counterterrorism Forum's (GCTF) first meeting in Istanbul on Friday, even though Israel has one of the most extensive experiences in counterterrorism in the world. Israel was excluded from the meeting because of fierce objections by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Israel tried hard to obtain an invitation to the meeting. 29 countries are participating in the GCTF, ten of which are Arab and/or Muslim countries. "The GCTF sought from the outset to bridge old and deep divides in the international community between Western donor nations and Muslim majority nations. And it has, I think, done that quite effectively," said a top US official.

Pollard’s Last Chance?

In the cold world of politics, the “Jewish vote” may be the only factor that determines the fate of Pollard, who has been languishing in prison for more than 26 years. With all polls showing that President Obama has 60-64 percent of the Jewish vote, as opposed to 78 percent four years ago, his political calculations of how many votes he can gain for Pollard’s freedom probably will be more influential than humanitarian considerations. Pollard was sentenced to life for a crime that usually carries a punishment of 2 to 4 years in jail - passing on classified information on behalf of a foreign country. He was not convicted of spying, but mainstream media continue to call him a “spy for Israel.”

Illegal Aliens Arrested

Inspectors from the Population, Immigration, and Borders Authority (PIBA) raided a neighborhood in Eilat and arrested dozens of illegal aliens from South Sudan, with the intent of deporting them. The arrests follow a decision by the government to begin taking tough action against the flood of illegal work migrants who have been entering Israel on foot from Africa during the past few years. (What about illegal migrants from Eastern Europe, Jordan and PA Arabs? Israeli governments’ chronic inaction and unwillingness to address issues, including national religious and ‘origin’ disunity, creates and sustains many social problems in Israel!)

Self-Defence is not Allowed?

An IDF commander has been suspended over a video that shows him throwing rocks and firing his gun in response to a violent attack from PA protesters outside the PA town of Nabi Saleh, north of Jerusalem. PA men began throwing heavy stones at the commander and his soldiers. Similar attacks have caused injury to soldiers in the past, including wounds requiring hospitalization and even death.

Arab Spring - Corruption, Dictatorship, but not Democracy

Egypt’s transitional military government assumed legislative powers after the constitutional court Thursday, June 14, dissolved parliament because one-third of its seats were gained illegally in an election which handed two Islamist parties a majority. Egyptians found they face a new general election two days before they vote in the presidential runoff.

Israeli Scientist Won World Food Prize

Dr. Daniel Hillel, an Israeli-American scientist who created an innovative way of bringing water to crops in arid regions, was named the winner of the 2012 World Food Prize. Dr Hillel laid the foundation for maximising efficient water usage in agriculture through a method known as micro-irrigation, which has impacted millions of lives.

Hate Graffiti at Israel’s Holocaust Memorial

Vandals spray-painted anti-Zionist graffiti at Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev suggested that ultra-Orthodox radicals were responsible, noting the slogans were written in excellent Hebrew handwriting and one was signed "world ultra-Orthodox Jewry." (There are some, well many, idiots among Jews - religious and self-hating leftists. But Israel’s authority, including police, are usually mute and slow in blaming migrants from the Former Soviet Union, who came to Israel in violation of the Law of Return or Arabs for anti-Semitic acts they commit. Habitual policy - “divide and conquer” Jewish population of Israel - must be dropped by the Israeli government. Only unity can bring Jews closer to realisation of our national goals.)

Self-Hating Left in Charge of Illegality of the Law in Israel

Legal expert Attorney Aharon Papo said that it is now clear beyond any doubt that the Supreme Court order to demolish the Ulpana neighborhood in Beit El was illegal, because the Court did not hear the position of the neighborhood’s residents. “The Supreme Court acted illegally in this case,” he said. “How could it be the Supreme Court issued an order following a petition without giving the residents a chance to respond to the petition and defend themselves?” The fact that the petition of the leftist organisations, headed by Peace Now, against the Ulpana neighborhood was accepted, did not exempt the judiciary system from protecting the defendants. (Chronic infestation of Israel’s legal system by Labor party stooges undermines Zionist efforts of Jewish patriots! How many pro-Israel rulings have been made by Arabs? They still ‘legally’ occupy 82% of Eretz-Israel!)

Hypocrisy of the Headlines:

“Israel denies African migrants' rights, says US” - BBC, a customary anti-Israel hypocrite - Must Israel keep illegal economic migrants in detention and deport them like most countries, including USA, UK and Australia, do? Israel has been a most tolerant host for illegal Muslim migrants from Africa. Crimes committed by African migrants are on the increase! This is due to the fact that governments of Israel for a quite while unwilling, in fear of habitual internationally orchestrated ‘condemnation’ which we are witnessing now, to address and resolve the problem of illegal migrants and not just African ones.

The Biblical Land Titles

by Steven Shamrak

Christianity and Islam insist they have inherited the Jewish tradition and believe in the monotheistic G-d. All three religions include Torah (Old Testimonies) as the written word of G-d. It is considered a great sin to disobey or falsify the words of the Almighty! I would like to present for your perusal two biblical land titles:

“Sarah died in Kiriatharba (Hebron)…” “Avraham weighed-out for Ephron the silver that he spoke of in the hearing of the sons of Cheis, four hundred silver shekel, negotiable currency.” “This became Avraham's (possession) through a purchase before the eyes of the sons of Cheis...” (Genesis 23:2, 16, 18)

Abraham made sure the purchase of land at Hebron was recorded as a legal sale, not as a gift.

“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spoke unto Moses. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the Great Sea (Mediterranean sea) toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border.” (Joshua1:3, 4; Re: Deuteronomy 11:24)

“This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.” Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; unto the Brook of Egypt, the Great Sea being the border thereof.” (Joshua15:20, 47)

Religious people believe that all that is written in the Torah by G-d is purposeful. Therefore, if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim you must accept the will of G-d and recognise the right of the Jewish people to live on all the land given to them by G-d. Otherwise, you are living a life of self-deception or hypocrisy.
