Use Enemy Aggression to Israel’s Advantage

by Steven Shamrak

Some people, mainly Jews, have been advocating that if Israel pays so-called Palestinians to vacate Jewish land, they would leave and the Arab-Israel conflict will be resolved. The international anti-Semites will not allow it! To prevent this, they adopted the 4th Geneva convention immediately after Israel won the War of Independence, and:

- The conflict is not based on the so-called Palestinian land issue, but on the desire to destroy Israel, the only Jewish state. The non-Jewish population in Israel, Judea, Samaria and Gaza is used by Muslim states and by international anti-Semites as a tool to achieve it.

- Fake Palestinians will never leave Jewish land voluntarily, even if they are paid, mostly in fear for their lives. Just look what has happened to 'Palestinians' who sell their land/houses to Jews - they were killed. Also, they are used to receive money from the ‘Ugly Nazi’ and other ‘Jew-loving’ players for doing nothing!

- Why must Israel pay them to end the occupation of Jewish land? Have Arab countries paid Jews when they were forced to leave their homes from Iran to Morocco, where they had lived for many centuries? A majority of the so-called Palestinians moved to Jewish land around 100 years ago, when Jews began re-building their ancestral homeland!

- Population transfer was quite accepted in 1948 – ethnic Germans were thrown out of Czechoslovakia and Muslims and Hindus moved between India and Pakistan. The rules were changed to prevent Arab refugees to be settled so they would be a weapon against Israel.

Historically, religiously, morally and even legally the land that was designated for a Jewish state by the League of Nations in 1920s still belongs to the Jewish people! We must not forget and not accept a narrative of the international anti-Semitic propaganda.

The only viable option left is to free our land from enemy occupation and reunite Jewish land, Eretz-Israel.  Israel can use the enemies’ aggression to achieve this objective!

It has been proven that Israel cannot rely on its best friend to participate in neutralising the global threat from Iran, and ending attacks from Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah and other enemies of the Jewish state. Israel must do it without permission or approval from its ‘best friend’!

Faulty Plan for Rafah Evacuation

Israel has made significant progress in preparations for the evacuation of civilians from the Gazan city of Rafah ahead of the Israeli military’s impending operation in the city. There are around 1.5 million Palestinian Arabs estimated to be in the Khan Yunis and Rafah areas in southern Gaza. It is believed around 1 million people would evacuate north. (Most of northern Gaza is destroyed and still infested by Hamas terrorists, and many of them will return with civilians. The border with Egypt is closer and the Sinai Peninsula has vast space to accommodate Gazans, and let them have a new beginning.)

Happy Passover – Pesach!

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Iran has been a sponsor of Islamic terrorism mainly against Israel for many years. Iran has also committed acts of piracy, seizing Israel-affiliated ships in the Red Sea. After the recent Iranian direct attack Israel is pressured again to avoid ‘escalation’ of the conflict in the Middle East, and ‘moderate’ its response.

This is the international Antisemitic hypocrisy at its best!

What would the United States or any independent and self-respectful country do in response to 300+ armed drones and ballistic rockets fired at them by an enemy?

Israel Strikes Radar and Missile System in Iran

Israel sent an explicit message to Iran, firing three missiles at an S-300 surface-to-air missile and radar system parked next door to the Natanz Nuclear Complex at the Artesh Air Base in the city of Isfahan, in Iran. It was clearly an exquisitely surgical strike, illustrating that had they wanted to, Israeli pilots could have just as easily hit the nuclear plant - but chose not to, and that Iran can’t defend itself against it.

What is the Rampage Missile?

The missile used in the attack on Iran early Friday morning was a precise missile named Rampage. It can fly at supersonic speed, making it very difficult to identify and intercept with aerial defense systems. The missile carries a warhead of 150 kilograms of explosives, and can reach a distance of 145 kilometers. It can also adjust its path mid-flight.

Antisemites of the 'Ugly Nazi' United

On Thursday, the UN Security Council vetoed the resolution to admit the Palestinian Authority as a full member state of the United Nations. Twelve countries voted in favour of the resolution: Slovenia, Sierra Leone, Russia, South Korea, Mozambique, Malta, Japan, Guyana, France, Ecuador, China, and Algeria. Two countries abstained - Britain and Switzerland. Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas blasted the US after it vetoed the resolution. (Appeasement of international Jew-haters does not work. They will only respect a strong and assertive Israel, but not love Israel.)

Let Turkey Suffer the Economic Cost of Hate

The Turkish government launched a bunch of trade restrictions on Israel, the stated aim of which was to penalize the Jewish state for the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip. Though Turkey is close to recession and continues to suffer from the runaway inflation that has plagued it for years, Erdogan to reluctantly halt the export of 54 products to the Jewish state - but much of the public still thinks that’s not enough. (There are many other friendlier places where Jews can go for a holiday.)

Normalizing Towns in Judea and Samaria

Israel's government begins normalizing 68 towns in Judea and Samaria.

The decision and the work which has been done following the decision mean that the State officially recognizes these communities. The decision will also allow the towns to be connected to existing infrastructure, which until now was not allowed, and government offices will be able to serve the families in these towns as they serve all other Israelis.

Sometimes Antisemitism does not Pay

Google has terminated the employment of 28 staff following a prolonged sit-in protest at the company’s Sunnyvale and New York offices. The employees were protesting against Project Nimbus, a $1.2 billion cloud computing contract inked by Google and Amazon with the Israeli government and its military three years ago. The controversial project, which reportedly also provides Israel with the full suite of Google Cloud’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, and has strict contractual stipulations that prevent Google and Amazon from bowing to boycott pressure. This effectively means that they must continue providing services to Israel no matter what.

Saudi Arabia Helped Defend Israel

Saudi Arabia formally acknowledged that it helped shoot down kamikaze drones heading for Israel. There’s hope that the Trump-era Abraham Accords, where Morocco, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Sudan signed a normalization treaty with Israel, can be built upon and expanded. There should be cautious optimism.

Only 48 Countries Condemn Iranian Attack

The Permanent Representatives of 48 countries (out of 193 member-states) at the United Nations issued a joint statement condemning Iran’s drone and missile attack on Israel. (There was no formal meeting and condemnation coming from the UNSC or UNGA. Anti-Semites of the world are still united!)

Changing Temple Mount Status Quo?

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir has reportedly made it his ministerial policy to change the status quo at the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem by apparently easing Jewish prayer at the flashpoint holy site, and boosting police enforcement there. The Temple Mount is the holiest place in Judaism, where two biblical Temples once stood, while the Al-Aqsa Mosque, also located there, is the third-holiest shrine in Islam, making the site a central flashpoint of the Israeli-Arab conflict. (It has been said before - do it now! Nobody really cared about Al-Aqsa Mosque before 1948. The one place anyone can truly say Israel has apartheid is on the Temple Mount, where it is against Jews, who cannot pray there. Time for Israel to say: “No to Apartheid”!)

Enemy Chant 'From the River to the Sea' is anti-Semitic

The US House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the chant “From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free” as anti-Semitic. The resolution was introduced by Rep. Anthony D'Esposito (R-NY), passed in a 377 to 44 vote. 43 Democrats and one Republican voted against it. Members of the so-called "Squad" of Progressive Democrats were among those to vote against it, including Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Jamaal Bowman, Cori Bush, and House Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal.

Quote of the Week:

"A number of other countries around the table today also have hostages in Gaza held by Hamas and other (terrorist) groups. And it's also important to remember, because I sometimes think that people have forgotten this, we have American hostages who've been held in the most deplorable conditions all of this time." - the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken - After so many undermining Israel statements, he finally remembers the American hostages. Other countries do not even care about their hostages.

Biden Administration is Targeting Zionists

A far-right (Zionist) Israeli activist and close ally to National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir was targeted in the third round of sanctions imposed by the Biden administration, aimed at clamping down on settler violence in Judea and Samaria. Sanctioning Gopstein was part of a calculated decision by the Biden administration to gradually target those in the political orbit of some of the Israeli government’s most extreme (Zionist) members. (There are no real attempts to sanction true extremists and terrorists, the enemies of Israel, in Judea/Samaria, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, and Iran!)

Biden Sanctioned More Jewish Citizens and Charities

The US Treasury Department announced new sanctions on two Israeli charities and an Israeli citizen for supporting “violent extremists in the West Bank”. US sanctions against Israelis have been deeply criticized by Israeli politicians, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said: “If the US wanted to use it in an equal manner it would have imposed sanctions on hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.”

At the same time, the US Secretary of State Blinken is expected to sanction the Netzach Yehuda battalion, which is considered one of the more popular destinations for religious Jewish recruits.

“At a time when our soldiers are fighting terrorist monsters, the intention to sanction a unit in the IDF is the height of absurdity and a moral low,” Netanyahu wrote in a post on X.
