Four Israelis Murdered, including pregnant woman

The time must come NOW:

When do Israelis simply start retaliating without restraint?

When do Israelis start making sure the Arab Muslim Nazi's know they are not welcome!

When will the parents and relatives of the victims band together to exact justice?

When will Israel do what is necessary and execute all of the Arab Muslim Nazi in Israeli Jails.

When will Israel tell the US to step off?

When will the Israeli people demand us morons in the Diaspora come home or just assimilate already?

When will the average Israeli Citizens band togehther town by town what is needed and then
after when the Israeli Police are sent to protect the Arabs...they send them away forcefully?

When will Israel say NO to fake negotiations?

When will the Israeli people reform the Kach Party and fulfill Kahane's wishes?

When will the Israeli people listen to Jobotinsky and realize that Secular Zionism is not JEWISH?

When will the time come when you can walk the streets anywhere in Eretz Yisrael and feel safe?

When will the people rise up and take over and throw the politicians away?

When, When, When???

Never Again...needs to have added...

Enough already!!!!!

Everytime some well-meaning fool starts floating the word "peace" around,
here in the Middle East, Israelis start getting murdered. Now is no
exception. A car with two Israeli couples from Beit Chagai near Hebron was
deliberately ambushed and all the passengers were shot at close range,
including a pregnant woman. "Peace" talks? With whom? About what?

Iran threatens Dimona

How many threats can the bad guys make while the Arab Muslim Nazi UN does not penalize them?

As many as they want because the UN is an Arab Muslim Nazi organization.

Iran threatens Sarkozys wife through the State run paper. Calls her names and said she should die because she disagreed with Iran policy.

Haman's descendants represent him well.
Putin remians the KGB villan, helping Iran ....

Our Green POTUS does nothing except help the Arab Muslim Nazi.
What would you expect from a Muslim.

Israel's Waste of Time

Now the murderer Abu Mazen is in DC to reopen fraudulent talks with Israel for "peace" solution.

Now the Arab Muslim Nazi's will begin their usual terror. They will start to bomb the peace talks into submission. How boring...except for the Jewish victims.

Bibi remians castrated and will fold like always ....
What remains is the Judea & Samaria issue. How will he negotiate those away.
Is anyone really concerned with an Arab Muslim Nazi population majority in Israel if they annex?

The fight is only between secular and religious Zionism.
The Religious want the biblical land of Israel and the Secular will take anything that world gives them as long as they can join the world community.

What fools! Nothing will change. History tells us clearly that what ever Israel gained in 1967 did not cause the 67 war...because Israel did not possess it yet. Duh....

Tell Obama to go tell the Arabs to take their pawns back and end the Israel can begin deporting the Arab Muslim Nazi population.

Feiglin for PM!!!!!


The Nuclear Year: By Moshe Feiglin

As these words are being written, the door on Israel's military option to destroy the Iranian nuclear threat is being closed tight. An attack on a "hot" nuclear reactor near a crowded city is tantamount to dropping a nuclear bomb on a civilian population. It is not reasonable to think that Israel, which did not muster up the necessary courage to withstand the expected response to bombing cement and steel, will dare bomb a live nuclear reactor. If Israel does not attack Bushehr in the wee bit of time left – and clearly, it won't – we can sorrowfully say that Israel has failed miserably in dealing with this major existential challenge.

While Israeli society is busy with "life and death" issues like the reportedly forged Galant document or the trial of former president Katzav, the curtain is slowly closing on Israel's ability to prevent the modern day Hitler from equipping himself with nuclear weapons.

This does not mean immediate destruction of the State of Israel. It is much more likely that what will happen is a steady deterioration of Israel's sovereignty – a snowball that will be unstoppable using our current tools. A country that is incapable of halting an enemy that threatens to destroy it loses its deterrence and invites intensifying political and terrorist pressure. The "solution", as always, will be total retreat from Judea and Samaria, with an assortment of other solutions on the way to the final one.

This does not really surprise any Israeli. Deep down, the Nation of Israel has come to terms with this reality. The average Israeli lives his life on borrowed time, feels that reality is closing in on him and that the arena on which he lives is shrinking under his feet. The Iranian nuclear threat is one million times too big for the average citizen – no matter how intelligent he may be. In addition, Israelis receive a 24 hour a day brainwashing about Katzav, Galant and the latest reality show – and cannot begin to think about anything serious. They have no choice but to depend on Israel's political leadership.

In this seemingly impossible reality, our current leadership seems to be the best that we can hope for. Our government is exquisitely balanced between the Jewish majority - that has been totally desensitized by the media - and the leftist power elites in Israel's society. This government is being run without any major corruption scandals and maintains a high standard of living and government services for its citizens. What more can we ask for? And if this government did not manage to stop the Iranian bomb – then it must really be unstoppable.

To understand what can be done, we must understand the roots of the failure. Israel lost the battle against Iran in Gush Katif. The expulsion of the Jews and destruction of their settlements was justifiably understood by the world as an absolute admission of the justness of the "Palestinian" narrative. It "proved" that the "Palestinian" claims on the entire Land are true. A person doesn't readily volunteer to give up parts of his home. If he does so, he essentially recognizes the fact that the house belongs to the party claiming that all of it is his.

Since the Expulsion, pressure on Israel has not weakened, as the proponents of the "Disengagement" promised. On the contrary, it has intensified by leaps and bounds. The ethical backbone of those who "compromised for peace" was not strengthened. It completely disappeared. Achmadinijad lectures in the West, while Israel's ministers are wanted as international criminals.

The State of Israel that flees its Jewish identity and attempts to base itself on the values of enlightened man – in other words, on the values of the Western world – finds itself with no tools with which to deal with the international attack against its legitimate right to exist. From the Western mentality arena – enlightened, Christian, secular, seemingly practical – it is no longer possible to supply an answer to the existential threat hanging over Israel. It is amazing to see how although Israel is at its highest point ever both economically and militarily, we cannot effectively counter the most basic threat against us.

There is, though, a different mentality-arena on which we can play. At one point or another, we will have no choice but to stand upon it. No, it is not an expanded alliance with Greece or just one more maneuver on the existing, shrinking arena. It is the Jewish arena. When the State of Israel will firmly plant itself upon it, it will enjoy full justification for its existence. When Israeli society will make peace with its Jewish identity; when it will be willing to fight and make sacrifices for the values that derive from this identity - we will be able to announce our intention to bomb the nuclear reactor in Bushehr, give the civilian population ample time to evacuate – and destroy the threat.

Gadi Taub is deluded (NY Times Opinion 08/30/10)

Gadi Taub is deluded with secular thinking.
He says Israel is settling for less.

I see his thinking as Earth bound secular Western style thought.

His article from Tel Aviv keeps reinforcing the Tel Aviv assimilation
mentality. What ties this guy to Israel, if he doesn't want to protect it...all of it?

He believes the secular Zionist dream could not have been simply HaShem vehicle to bring us back to our land. How naive! Gadi lives in Tel that like any part of Israel?

Gadi doesn't recognize, respect, understand or care about the view of the true Zionists...those that want to return the Jewish people to biblical Israel.
Gadi thinks that Kahane could not and that we can't remove the Arabs from Israel.

He thinks that Israel actually had the might to beat 1/2 Billion Arabs in the wars of the last 70+ years.

Gadi thinks there is no hand of HaShem.

Gadi thinks like a Gentile and that is fine....but it doesn't interest Torah Jews.
Gadi is the voice of the enemy, telling us we need to compromise, we need to go against Torah and willingly give up HaShems land to the Arabs

No, Never and a last note KAHANE TZADAK!!!

Vote for Moshe Feiglin and let the Jewish people take back Israel!!!


NEW - “Cuban Missile Crises”

Those who oppose an Israeli strike on Iran say this will trigger Iranian sleeper cells in the US and Canada and thus play havoc in America. This objection ignores the reason why those sleeper cells were established in the first place—beginning in the 1990s—and what they might more readily be encouraged to do if Iran deploys nuclear weapons.

Moreover, Iran is penetrating anti-American regimes in Latin America. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been wooing Venezuela strong man Hugo Chavez. Given Iran’s’ long-range ballistic missiles, if they are tipped with nuclear bombs, one may reasonably expect one or more “Cuban Missile Crises” in the future.

Manhigut Yehudit - Feiglin!

Israel needs:

1. Jewish leadership that strengthens and preserves Israel’s Jewish identity.
2. At least 1 hour of Jewish education per day to every child in Israel.
3. End Arab terror and the Iranian nuclear threat with decisive action.
4. Democratize the Israeli justice system.
5. Massively expand worldwide aliyah.
6. Settle Judea, Samaria, the Negev, the Galilee, and return to Gush Katif.
7. Apply Jewish values to domestic policy without any religious coercion.
8. Restore pride to the Jewish nation.

My vote remains with Moshe!!!


IRS Sued For Discrimination Against Organizations That Don't Share Administration's Position on Israel!


Z STREET, a pro-Israel non-profit corporation, filed a lawsuit in federal court today charging that the IRS violated the organization’s First Amendment rights. The suit was filed after Z STREET was told by an IRS official that its application for tax-exempt status has been delayed because an IRS policy requires consideration of whether a group’s views on Israel differ from those of the current Administration.

“Not only is it patently un-American but it is also a clear violation of the First Amendment for a government agency to penalize an organization because of its political position on Israel or anything else,” said Z STREET president Lori Lowenthal Marcus, a former First Amendment lawyer. “This situation is the same as if the government denied a driver’s license to people because they were Republicans or Democrats. It goes against everything for which our country stands.”

Z STREET filed for tax-exempt status in January of this year and, despite having met all of the requirements for grant of this status, the application has been stalled. An IRS agent told Z STREET’s lawyers that the application was delayed because of a Special Israel Policy that requires more intense scrutiny of organizations which have to do with Israel, in part to determine whether they espouse positions on Israel contrary to those of the current Administration.

Z STREET is a Zionist organization that proudly supports Israel’s right to refuse to negotiate with, make concessions to, or appease terrorists. Z STREET’s positions on Israel and, in particular, on the Middle East “peace process” differ significantly from those espoused by the Obama administration.

If Z STREET had tax-exempt status, its donors would be able to deduct contributions from their taxable income. The IRS's refusal to grant tax-exempt status to Z STREET has inhibited the organization‘s fund-raising efforts, and therefore impeded its ability to speak and to educate the public regarding the issues that are the focus and purpose of Z STREET.

The lawsuit, Z STREET v. Shulman, Commissioner of Internal Revenue, was filed today in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Economy and Security: By Moshe Feiglin

Israel's economic and security might are at their highest point ever, while its moral standing and ability to preserve the legitimacy of its existence are at an all-time low.

Defense Minister Barak announced this week that he has authorized Israel's purchase of F35 fighter jets from the US. The defense department debated long and hard over whether it is worthwhile for Israel to invest billions for the new jets. Traditionally, the purchase of new jets would set off a mini-celebration in Israel. But this time, it looks like there is nothing to celebrate.

The main argument used time and again to explain why Israel must retreat or why we must not attack Iran is that we will not be able to manage without the American-made spare parts for our fighter jets. This claim is not true. Israel can and does acquire most (and possibly all) of its required spare parts on the open international market – at better prices than from their source.
Israel's continued reliance on American weapons is the perpetuation of the self-loathing mentality that bases Israel's existence on its big brother across the ocean.

It is not even clear that Israel needs these jets. What then, motivates the Defense Minister to authorize their purchase?

The disengagement of the Jews from reality - a.k.a. G-d - leads to its disengagement from its Land. This process of disengagement inevitably results in Israel making "painful concessions." Before these concessions, the US always sends some new weapons system our way, in an attempt to ease the pressure on Israel's leadership and to help it convince the Israeli public to swallow the bitter pill.

Israel should have neutralized the Iranian threat a long time ago, with or without the F35. It did not do so, and probably will not do so until the nuclear reactor is activated in a few days – not because of lack of operational capabilities but due to lack of moral/societal/political resilience. The F35 purchase will not add to this resilience. It will only to serve to make Israel more mentally subservient to the US, aggravating an already bad situation.

Does this mean that Israel should not use American weapons?

An authentic Jewish Israel will use excellent products from around the world – both material and cultural. The authentic Jewish State will conduct diverse and widespread commerce. Its international relations will be based upon mutual respect. Where needed, it will also engage in strategic alliances with other nations. But all of these foreign relations will be predicated upon the focal point – Israel's immutable connection to its G-d.

It was not difficult to anticipate the future of the relations between Israel and Turkey. The reason for the intelligence gaffe on the flotilla was not operational, but conceptual. Trapped in the conceptual world of 'peace,' the IDF could not prepare for war. Israel, incapable of understanding the theological roots of the conflict and the faith that lies at the foundation of all cultures was dazzled by secular Turkey, misreading developments in the country.

Exchanging Greece for Turkey is the repetition of the same mistake. Leadership that does not understand the basic hatred of Esau for Jacob, will continue to rely on alliances on shifting sands. No strategic alliances can help a nation that has lost the faith in its right to exist. Cutting-edge weapons won't help, either.

Israel must prepare itself for the future both economically and militarily.

Israel's economy must evolve so that it will become basically self-sufficient. The world is marching toward major crisis that will decrease Israel's export opportunities. The more that Israel's economy can absorb local products, the less damage we will incur from the approaching crisis. For our long term economic independence as well, we must encourage the manufacture of local products – even if we can currently buy them abroad for less.

This is even more true for weapons development. The Israeli Lavie fighter jet project (eliminated by Yitzchak Rabin) was cancelled due to economic considerations. But if today, the backbone of Israel's Air Force had been based on Israeli jets, it may just be that the Iranian threat would not exist. Not only because of the operational capabilities of the Lavie, but mainly because it would have freed us of our dependence- mentality on the US. Even now, Israel still has options to produce its own jet fighters, with the cooperation and funding of other countries that do not wish to be dependant on American weapons. The choice of the F35 testifies to serious cognitive paralysis.

Israel must make G-d its focal point as it adapts its culture to its Jewish values. When it will do so, it will conduct itself naturally, logically and successfully on every plane.

Moshe Feiglin Q & A

What is your message to the Israeli public?

I think that we must make the Jewish identity of our state our first priority.

A theocratic state?

Not at all. Israel must be a state that affords its citizens the liberty to express who they really are. I actually oppose religious parties and religious legislation.

So what kind of state are you referring to?

Israel should be a state in which every child in the educational system studies Jewish identity for one hour daily. Our children should know our history, our land, the Bible and the prayer book. Whether or not they choose to pray from the prayer book is their choice (or that of their parents). But at least they should be familiar with the glorious history and culture that informs who they are today.

And what will you do about the Arabs?

Our problems with the Arabs are a reflection of the problems between the Jews. The Left is fanatically anxious to 'solve' the Arab problem so that they will stop reminding them that they are Jews. They erroneously think that if the Arabs no longer hate the Jews, they will also be free of their Jewishness. This psychosis has accompanied the Jewish people for generations. The Arabs have subconsciously identified the obsessive need of Israel's leftist leaders for their recognition. This is a tremendous psychological asset that they use to manipulate us. That is why there will be no peace with the Arabs until we make peace with ourselves.

So you are saying that there is no peace because we try to escape our Jewish identity?

Right. As soon as we free ourselves of our identity crisis, we will have peace with our neighbors.

And what should we do in the meantime?

We must concentrate on the Jews. Israel should give every honorably discharged soldier who wants to get married free land on which to build his home in the Negev, Galilee, Golan, Judea or Samaria. If you travel today along Wadi Ara or the Negev, you will plainly see that the state has de facto provided every new Arab couple with free land.

Secondly, Israel must give its citizens as much freedom of choice as possible. Every citizen should be able to obtain a broadcasting license and to broadcast on both radio and television to his heart's desire (within the confines of Israel's security needs and common morality, of course). Supreme Court justices should be elected by our elected representatives and undergo a Knesset hearing, as is done in America. Israel should have district elections so that our Knesset members would have to answer to their own constituency.

When Israel comes down on the side of liberty and true democracy, it will be free of the identity crisis of the 'enlightened elites' that has been plaguing us ever since the state was born. Israel will be a Jewish state for the Jewish people. At that point we will be able to deal with the challenges facing us – and triumph.

What is your stand on economy?

In a Jewish country the economy should be based on a triangle whose base is capitalism (the right of purchase) and whose right and left sides are faith and lovingkindness. I abhor populist socialism that essentially demands equal distribution of poverty. I believe that the state does not have the right to rob one of his possessions, and it must interfere with the economy as little as possible.

To deal with poverty we must hold district elections and develop community organizations. In doing so we will restore personal responsibility to our citizens and develop the Jewish values of loving kindness and mutual responsibility. The centralized welfare policies currently in effect in Israel have gone bankrupt long ago, and we all feel it. We must develop the traditional Jewish community structure (that the State of Israel essentially destroyed), and in this way erase the phenomenon of hungry children and forgotten elderly.

What is your security strategy?

My security platform is based first and foremost on the justice of our cause. As soon as we lost our feeling of justice, we brought terror and additional security threats upon ourselves. Once, my reserve army unit was able to keep order in all of Shechem. Today, all the elite units put together cannot do so, because we do not believe that we are right.

I believe that true Jewish leadership can significantly reduce the amount of forces needed for security because we will once again make our enemies feel threatened. Israel’s security policy must be aggressive (as when Begin attacked Iraq’s nuclear reactor ), and not a policy of defensive walls, separation fences, bullet proof vehicles and Arrow missiles.

We must strive for a standing army that is strictly voluntary. If there is a threat to our country, we must attack and not leave existential dangers for the coming generations because we feared to deal with them.

8 Reasons Leftists should be Pro-Israel

Supporting Israel squares with the core principles of the Left.

Israel continues to be the demon poster-child of the Left. The prime example of a repressive regime and abuser of human rights. On the Left, people became outraged and agitated over Israel more than over any other cause. Israel's supposed villainy will bring out protestors on cold, rainy days in a way no other issue can. Many of these people are earnest, but perhaps misled.

In most ways, my own politics tend to be Liberal-Left: I support single-payer, universal healthcare, I opposed the war in Iraq and the Bush-Cheney "imperial presidency," I even voted twice for Ralph Nader. However, like French philosopher Bernard Henri-Lévy, I differ on Israel and reject the demonization of Israel, whether at the United Nations, in the world media, or among American and European Leftists.

If my fellow Leftists or even Liberals think that the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement will help bring an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as peace to the Middle East and harmony to the community of nations, they are sadly mistaken. There is a difference between criticism and demonization, and the campaign against Israel is of the latter type. Criticism, and there is much of it within Israel's own healthy democracy, can result in positive change. But the focused attempt to demonize Israel, not undertaken against any other nation, is aimed at delegitimizing Israel and undermining its very existence, as if the problems of the world were the fault of the Israelis -- the fault of the Jews -- and if they would only go away, all would be better.

Not only is this a sorry illusion, but this concerted assault on Israel itself betrays the principles of the Left.

Here, then, are eight reasons Leftists should be Pro-Israel (or, at least, Pro-Peace rather than Anti-Israel):

1. Human Rights. The Left fights for human rights in the world. Even if one thinks Israel or its soldiers guilty of human rights violations (and I am not willing at the outset to grant this point), there is no international or historical comparison that could reasonably rank Israel among the worst criminals of the world or of history. Whether we look at the scale of the conflict, the numbers of lives lost, or the treatment of the press or of dissidents, there are far too many examples of bloodshed and persecution dwarfing anything done by Israel against the Palestinians over the last four decades since the Six Day War, when Israel was attacked by its neighbors. Even Arab treatment of Palestinians, such as in Jordan's Black September massacre, caused thousands of deaths, possibly more in 10 days than in four decades of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And how can we compare Israel to Mugabe's Zimbabwe, or the Chinese crackdown on Tibet and Tianneman? Or the disappearances and death squads of Latin America Square or the killing fields of Pol Pot? Let alone the genocide pursued by Hitler or Stalin's murderous reign? Let us be clear: genocide is the attempt to exterminate an entire people and culture; this is not what has happened to the Palestinians, and it is not the goal of Israeli policy. By contrast, the explicit aim of Hamas is to eliminate Israel. So, if we support human rights and oppose persecution, ought we not first to focus our efforts on the places where we find the worst situations? Can anyone rationally claim that among these places, let alone the most horrendous of all, is a small nation on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea?

2. Internationalism. Leftists tend to support internationalism. One would think that the United Nations would be the world body most dedicated to furthering this aim. But how is it that Israel, this small nation, has become such a central concern? From 2003-2010, there have been more than 900 human rights actions against Israel at the U.N.; the next closest is Sudan at just under 400. Israel is the only member of the U.N. to be excluded from any of the five regional groups. And should not all on the Left oppose the absurdity of the so-called Human Rights Council, whose members include such paragons of humanitarianism as China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Kyrgyzstan? How can Leftists stand silent when the Turkish Prime Minister denounces Israel for human rights crimes while then promising that the Kurds will "drown in their own blood," in a conflict with human rights abuses on both sides and tens of thousands individuals killed? If Gaza is not the ideal place to live, if the Gazans are suffering, nevertheless the photos in the New York Times and elsewhere and the testimony of reporters clearly demonstrate that Gazans are not starving, their store shelves are not empty, whether for food or consumer goods; as difficult as the situation may be, it is simply not the pinnacle of human rights disasters, and Israel is thus not deserving of international condemnation above all other nations in the world.

3. Peace. Leftists want peace. In the Middle East and elsewhere. The polls make clear that, overwhelmingly, Israelis desire peace with their neighbors; the difficult sacrifices, including the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza make this evident. Israelis are prepared for a secure, two-state solution, to live side-by-side in peace. Meanwhile, the stated goal of its enemies is to end its existence. A simple thought-experiment should make the matter starkly clear: If tomorrow Hamas and other Palestinian groups unilaterally put down their weapons, what would follow? Peace. If Israelis unilaterally put down their weapons, what would follow? Millions of dead or exiled Jews. Anyone on the Left who does not recognize this is living in denial. Leftists should support peace and not live in denial.

4. Anti-Authoritarianism. Leftists oppose authoritarianism and dictatorship and instead support popular, democratic rule. Israel maintains a vibrant, parliamentary democracy, with a broad range of views represented, much more so than in the United States, for example. Indeed, Arabs parties and Communists have long had representatives voted into the Israeli Knesset. Can we imagine such representation, as well as the freedom of assembly and freedom of speech in Israel's Arab neighbors? In the Gaza ruled by Hamas? In Egypt or Syria or Saudi Arabia? By opposing Israel and supporting groups like Hamas, the Left is not supporting a liberation struggle but rather the effort to replace the Middle East's only democracy with yet another repressive dictatorship. Do Leftists really desire such an outcome? How can the one major effort to boycott, divest, and sanction be aimed at a democratic nation like this? As Bernard Henri-Levy has written at the Huffington Post of the "Confusion of an era when we combat democracies as though they were dictatorships or fascist States. This maelstrom of hatred and madness is about Israel. But it also concerns, as we should be well aware, some of the most precious things established in the movement of ideas in the last thirty years, especially on the left, and these are thus imperiled."

5. Human Dignity and Equality. The Left fights for the values of dignity and equality. Are these traits exemplified more by Israel or its neighbors? Look at how much Israelis value the life of a single soldier, in the willingness to trade hundreds of prisoners for one soldier, and even to trade prisoners to recover their dead for proper burial. Look at the rules of engagement of the Israeli Defense Forces, at how the IDF calls and leaflets civilians to warn them; does any other military do such a thing? In terms of equality and human rights, compare the state of women's rights in Israel with that in the rest of the Middle East. And in terms of human dignity, do people on the Left think so little of Palestinian dignity that they are willing to claim Palestinians have "no choice" but to turn themselves into homicidal-suicidal bombers to kill Israeli children? Can we not expect more of people? Treating Palestinians like helpless victims does less than recognize their human dignity.

6. Anti-Discrimination. Leftists oppose sexism, racism, and any similar sort of discrimination. And so, Leftists do or ought to oppose anti-Semitism in the same way. And yet, Leftists too often give a pass to anti-Semitism masked as anti-Zionism or anti-Israel sentiment. The playwright David Mamet has written in the Huffington Post as follows: "Yet most of the Western Press, European and American, pictures Israel as, somehow the aggressor, and the Israelis as somehow inhuman, and delighting in blood." As Mamet has elaborated in his book The Wicked Son: Anti-Semitism, Self-Hatred, and the Jews, this is nothing less than a reworking of the old Blood Libel against the Jews -- except this time, instead of being accused of using non-Jewish blood to bake matzah, the Jews are accused of spilling blood for no reason other than gratuitous pleasure. Leftists ought to be vigilant in distinguishing between constructive criticism of Israel and dehumanizing caricatures of Jews.

7. Self-Defense. Only the most uncompromising pacifists oppose the right to self-defense, and certainly most Leftists uphold this right. At least when Palestinians are doing the defending. Why are Israelis exempt from this right? How many Leftists would sit idly by while rockets rained down on their towns and families, with their children traumatized? And if we said, oh, but people are only killed occasionally, would that minimize your commitment to protect your family? Only Jews are expected to lay down their weapons and offer their throats. How dare the Jews have the chutzpah to fight back?!

8. Progress. We want movement on Palestinian-Israeli and Arab-Israeli peacemaking. Yet, demonizing Israel, singling it out, as is done at the UN and on college campuses will do little to advance peace. We all know, have all known for decades the basic outlines of a peace settlement. The Israelis have been prepared for this and have prepared their citizens. The Left should be pressuring Palestinians to accept peace and to stop teaching their children that Jews are monsters after their blood. This sort of pressure might bring some progress.

It was long ago time for Leftists to tear down the poster that features Israel as the demon-child of human rights abuse and repression. It is time for Leftists to become outraged not over Israel, but over the distortions and demonization of Israel on college campuses and at the United Nations and throughout the media and politics. It is time for Leftists to reject the treatment of Israel as a pariah, or Jews as bloodthirsty murderers, and time instead to welcome Israel into the community of nations as a full member, subject to the same criticism and praise as any other nation.

Minister Edelstein: No More Disengagements

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is well aware of the dangers of a second “Disengagement,” says Minister of Diaspora Affairs Yuli-Yoel Edelstein in an interview with Arutz Sheva's Hebrew-language news service. His comments were made on the fifth anniversary of the Disengagement from Gaza and northern Samaria.

Most of the Israeli public opposes unilateral withdrawal, Edelstein said. Many opposed the idea of unilateral withdrawal before the Disengagement, and many others became convinced of the dangers of unilateral withdrawal in the years that followed, when Hamas rose to power in Gaza and residents of southern Israeli came under daily rocket attack.

Those who continue to believe in the power of unilaterally uprooting Jewish towns and giving the land on which they were built to the Palestinian Authority are a small minority, Edelstein said.

He rejected rumors that Israel has agreed to make territorial concessions in order to bring the PA to the negotiating table. “Israel has not committed to destroy Jewish towns or to carry out territorial withdrawals,” he said.

Iran Denies Bushehr Activation Will Enable Atomic Weapon

Iran is denying a doomsday message to the world by former U.S. diplomat John Bolton, warning that activation of a nuclear reactor in the Islamic Republic will end the chance to prevent Tehran from developing an atomic weapon.

Iranian officials denied Wednesday that the Bushehr nuclear power plant will produce enriched uranium, or an atomic weapon, after it is activated Friday. Still, to protect its nuclear investment, Iran has vowed to close the Straits of Hormuz if necessary.

On Friday, August 21, Russia is scheduled to begin loading nuclear fuel rods into the reactor, also built by Moscow.

Iranian MP Hossein Sobhaninia has claimed the fueling of the plant “cannot be linked to Iran's nuclear enrichment program; Iran is well aware of its responsibilities.” His colleague, Iranian MP Mohammad Karim Shahrzad added a warning, however, according to a report broadcast by the country's English-language Press TV news network: “The time frame for enrichment activity is a domestic matter,” he said. “It is an issue in which the United States is not entitled to interfere."

A New Approach to the Chronic Left Turn: By Moshe Feiglin

Scene I
The Israeli family has answered the Settlerman family's invitation and is coming to their house for Shabbat. As soon as they arrive, the Settlerman's angrily eye the Israeli daughters' immodest attire. When Mr. Israeli's cell phone begins to ring in the middle of the Lecha Dodi Sabbath prayers, the cantor demonstratively stops the services. When Mr. Israeli goes out to smoke a cigarette at the end of the festive Shabbat meal, an entire delegation arrives to demand that the guests honor the settlement's ethical code or leave.

Scene II

The Israeli family has answered the Settlerman family's invitation and is coming to their house for Shabbat. Parts of their lifestyle totally contradict the values of the Settlerman family. But the hosts understand that the Israeli family lives with a different frame of reference and that they cannot judge them according to their own values or those of their settlement. The Settlermans also understand that if the Israelis came to them, it means that they understand that something is missing in their lives. The best way to explain to them that they need not look for what is missing at the settlers' doorstep is to relate to them according to the model in Scene I. But the Settlermans turn to the other extreme and decide to allow the Israeli family to act as they always do; to drive their car right up to their house on Shabbat, to turn on the television at full volume and to barbeque on Shabbat afternoon. The Israeli family decides to leave because they do not feel that the Settlermans have anything new to offer them.

How should the Settlermans have acted? The secret is not to try to rectify others, but to suffice with setting basic boundaries past which you no longer feel comfortable. (i.e. On Shabbat, please park your car by the entrance to the settlement) and to focus on the alternative. Of course, it is preferable to do all this with a smile.

Everything we have written till now could have appeared in any of the rightist or religious newspapers. Why are we writing about it in the weekly update?

Let us go ahead to Scene III

The Prime Minister of Israel decides to freeze the settlements for 10 months. Clearly, this is no less a transgression than lighting a cigarette on Shabbat. It is also clear that the Prime Minister is not motivated by hatred of the settlers. He is doing this because, just like in the example above, his frame of reference does not allow for a different solution. In his frame of reference there are Obama, the Turkish flotilla, Goldstone and the European boycott. In order to maneuver between all the pressures, he has to throw them a bone.

Is he right? Of course not!

Does his course of action lead to a solution? Not at all!
But that is how the PM sees reality. Sadly, that is also how the majority of Israelis see reality. Most of the nation is still living within the frame of reference in which women dress according to a different code, most people do not keep the laws of Shabbat and the nation's existential anchor (ridiculously) is Obama and not the G-d of Israel.
How have we dealt with this problem till now?

Judging by the results, not very successfully. We have likely made all the mistakes in Scene I and Scene II. Either we turned the struggle into the goal, or we made appeasement our goal. In either case, we have not tried to present the Israeli Family with a different life alternative. We have never tried to invite the Nation of Israel to us, or even more specifically - to bring our values system to the rest of the nation.

We must not give up on the continuation of building in Judea and Samaria. We must take positive action to ensure that the building freeze will not continue. But we must also remember that in the existing Israeli frame of reference, there is no other solution. It is no coincidence that the most rightist politicians turn left as soon as they get into the PM's chair. They do not have a frame of reference in which they could implement a different policy. Whether we conduct a public relations campaign or we block traffic - if we do not supply that new frame of reference, the final result will repeat itself.

Why Israel Must Eliminate the Iranian Threat - Prof Paul Eidelberg

The multifaceted proposal outlined below is based on the assumption that Israel has the air and naval platforms required to destroy Iran's nuclear development program and cripple Syria and Hezbollah. However, before being overawed by the problematics and possible ramifications of an Israeli strike on Iran, it must be stressed that Iran does not have to deploy nuclear weapons to bring about the Israel's political demise. Let it only be known that Iran has one or more of such weapons and certain consequences will naturally follow, namely:

Above picture is NYC on Madison Ave

1) Jewish immigration to Israel will dwindle.

2) Emigration of well-off Israelis, especially of professionals employable abroad, will increase.

3) The Jewish birthrate in Israel will decrease.

4) The ratio of Jews to Arabs will decline.

5) The ratio of Jewish to Arab Knesset members will decline.

6) Economic investments in Israel will decrease as will Israel's GDP.

7) Scientific and technological progress will shrink.

8) Israel's military power vis-à-vis its enemies will decline.

9) Israel will cease being a strategic asset to the United States.

10) The country will be utterly demoralized.

That a successful Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities would only delay production of a nuclear bomb by two or three years is not an argument against a strike. During the interim the United States will very likely have a new president who will pursue an aggressive policy toward Iran.

Meanwhile, "regime change" may take place in Iran facilitated by overt and covert actions by Israel and/or America. Also, Israel may develop a defensive nuclear shield that would neutralize Iran.

A strike against Iran would have to be followed immediately by Israeli strikes against Syria and Hezbollah.

It would obviously be of enormous importance to target the leadership echelons of Israel's enemies.

Of course, the ramifications of this multifaceted proposal are enormous. Israel will be denounced by the Obama administration, the United Nations, and the European Union. A U.S. arms embargo and economic sanctions will very likely follow.

However, Israel will retain the support of the American Congress and will be cheered by the American people. Indeed, a successful Israeli strike against Iran would have a most a therapeutic impact on American society especially on Evangelical Christians as well as on Catholics. They will rally to Israel's support and be encouraged to magnify their own efforts against the atheism and hedonism spreading throughout the United States.

A successful Israeli strike against Iran will incite imams in a thousand mosques to vent their hatred not only of Jews but of Christian America, and this will expose Islam, as 9/11 failed to do, as the enemy of civilization so awesomely portrayed in this hyperlink:

An existential crisis of world-historical significance is developing in America. Americans dare not remain silent or "politically correct" while this fabricated religious threat to human freedom spreads across the land (click > Madison Avenue.doc).*
A successful Israeli attack on Iran, the epicenter of global Jihad, will stop Islamic triumphalism and inspire Americans to go on the offensive against this imperialistic evil. Another American Revolution beckons. Is it far-fetched to think that Israel will trigger this Revolution lest America succumb, step-by-step, to the darkest of tyrannies?

Al-Qaeda Plots Against Saudi Monarchs, Israel

( Al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen have called to topple Saudi rulers and murder Christians living in Saudi Arabia, according to a taped statement released Wednesday. The person speaking in the tape identified himself as senior Al-Qaeda operative Saeed al-Shihri, but his identity could not be confirmed.

The tape also included a call for rogue terrorist attacks on Israel. Addressing Al-Qaeda supporters in the Saudi Arabian army, the speaker said, “Bear arms against Israel... Whoever is a pilot should seek martyrdom in the skies of Palestine, and whoever is in the navy should aim his weapons at the Jews...”

United States officials have issued a warning to Americans staying north of Riyadh. Terrorists may be planning to attack Western nationals in the Al-Qassim province, they said.

The speaker in Wednesday's tape called on Al-Qaeda supporters to collect information on the Saudi royal family. Those who have access to members of the royal family should kill them, he said. He called to murder Christians as well.

Marc Mezvinsky's intermarriage is the result of our inaction

.Marc Mezvinsky's intermarriage is the result of our inaction

The headlines yelled, "Mazel tov!" referring to the recent marriage of “first daughter” Chelsea Clinton (daughter of former US President Bill Clinton & Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) to Marc Mezvinsky, a New York banker and son of two former members of the US Congress.

The news stories all commented on how Mr. Mezvinsky, in addition to his Burberry Brit designed Tuxedo, wore a traditional Jewish talit and kippah.

Mention was made of the recitation of the Sheva Brachot, the essence of a Jewish marriage ceremony, that were followed by a poem and additional prayers pertinent to Chelsea’s religious background.

But even with the million dollar plus budget, the Jewish rituals and the celebrity guests, it still all boils down to an intermarriage.
In my father’s day, when someone intermarried he was making a strong statement: "I do not want to remain Jewish. I want to get away from the burden of Jewish life and become like everyone else." There was nothing Jewish about the wedding and the result was assimilation.

When I was in my twenties and people intermarried they were also making a statement, perhaps less vehemently, but still a statement. Rather than wanting to run away from Judaism, they simply did not know enough to care. “We are all the same. Why should I marry a Jew? Religion does not play a role in our life.” Perhaps ignorance, perhaps apathy, but usually not anger or a desire to get away from being Jewish.

We have now entered a new era.

Mr. Mezvinsky, a privileged, educated intelligent and successful man chooses to intermarry, not because he does not care about being Jewish and certainly not because he hates Judaism. In fact, it appears that he is an identifiable Jew, perhaps a proud Jew who makes an effort to embrace his heritage.

Yet, here he is, standing under a chuppah, wearing a talit, a kippah and reciting brachot as he marries a (famous) member of the United Methodist Church.

We are in a new era where a Jew can proudly identify as being Jewish and see no contradiction in marrying a non-Jew.

We have reached a point where a Jew is so uneducated about his own beliefs, so confused about what it means to be a Jew that he could intermarry and still feel proud to be a Jew.

Marc Mezvinsky's intermarriage is the result of our inaction.

Perhaps we could not reach those who left the Jewish fold because they were embarrassed to be Jews. And it's difficult to engage intermarried Jews who are apathetic and indifferent about being Jewish. But when an identifiable, proud Jew intermarries, then the question we need to ask is why wasn't he educated and reached out to? How did the Jewish people fail in not giving him the knowledge he needed to channel his Jewish pride correctly?

Did our lack of care allow Marc Mezvinsky's intermarriage to Chelsea Clinton to happen?

Why wasn't he invited to someone’s Shabbat table? To a Sukkah? Where were the “Lunch & Learn” programs, the classes, the one-on-one learning when Mark Mezvinsky needed them so desperately?

It saddens me greatly to see those wedding photos of Marc wearing his talit and kippah among the rich and powerful, the lost Jew, a stranger to his own heritage with a fierce desire to be a part of that heritage.

Not just because such a precious soul was lost to his people, but more so by the realization that this could have been stopped. He wants to be a Jew, he is proud to be a Jew and we, the ones who care, failed.

We cannot afford to lose another proud Jew like Marc Mezvinsky. They are waving their tallits in our collective faces and we looking the wrong way.

The question really boils down to us: Do we care?

Entitlement and Life: By Moshe Feiglin

Translated from the Makor Rishon newspaper Your graying hair is simply cut. No, you don't dye it.
You wear a simple, wide oriental dress that - under other circumstances - could well serve a settler from the hilltops.
Very intelligent - that is clear.
About fifty years old, with a student's backpack.
Of European descent - that is also clear.
Very fluent, Israeli Hebrew.
Just like the women of the radical left Machsom Watch.
Surely, you are also part of that group.

You do not know Arabic, and you devotedly help the Arabs that you accompany to the Israeli hospital - Arabs from Gaza till Afghanistan - with a mixture of Hebrew and English. You offer a cup of water to a crying mother, to another you offer a chair, you take care of their paperwork. You are a special woman - no doubt about it. Everyone already knows you here - and respects you.

We did not exchange one word. But the weeks of furtive glances that we exchanged said it all. Once, I would simply have hated you. I would have considered you a traitor. Why are you fluttering around a burned child who was playing with a bomb that for some reason was in his backyard in Kalkilyah? Is there not enough Jewish pain into which to channel your kindness?

But the anger has been replaced by a feeling of pity. I understand where you are coming from. I saw people like you not long ago, in protected housing for Holocaust survivors. I happened to have met a group of German youth there. They volunteer there regularly, to try to atone at least a bit for the crimes of their fathers.

You are motivated by the same, horrible feeling of collective guilt that you have taken upon your conscience. You are trying to atone for their dispossession from "their" land. But unlike the youths from Germany, here in the hospital you come face to face with someone who still believes in the "Occupation."

I am not the only one looking at you. The Arabs who you so selflessly help are also looking. Most of them are good people, sympathizing, trying to calm a crying child. But what do they think when they see you, an Israeli who thinks that if she stole Sheikh Munis from them in 1948, they will forgive her if she brings them a cup of water?

In truth, I have more respect for them than you do. I do not try to buy them with superficial friendliness. I think that they respect me much more than they do you because you have declared that you are a robber and I - I am living on my Land. They understand and respect that.

You have won. The State of Israel has lined up with your worldview and in the end, you even convinced the Arabs. We could have lived with them very well. With mutual respect, with peace. I saw them. Professional, human - regular people. If not for you, an Arab in the state of the Jews would have had no problem. But you convinced them that they have been robbed. It took time. The generations of 1948 and the Six Day War made way for a new generation that was born into the Occupation mindset that you have instilled in them.

The newscaster announces that the terrorist who murdered the policeman a few months ago has been apprehended. He admitted that he had been planning an abduction and that the kippot (skullcaps) that were to be used to confuse the police who would hurry to help - were bought in Jerusalem. His daughter was being treated in the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem and her father was authorized to accompany her. Maybe you were even there and offered him a chair or a cup of water. Maybe you ran through the hospital corridors, helping him with his paperwork. And he - while his daughter was being treated at a Jewish hospital - took advantage of his time in the Jewish city to buy what he needed to carry out the abduction that turned into the murder of a Jewish policeman.

Did he feel any shame when he admitted those details?
Of course not.
Will anybody think twice before allowing Arabs from Judea, Samaria and Gaza to be treated in Israeli hospitals?
Of course not.

After all, you are the strong one here - not me.
You determine the mindset, the agenda.
And both sides are stuck in the "Occupation" mentality that you have created.

We have no problem with the Arabs. Our only problem is with you - or more specifically - with me. Because I have not yet managed to replace your disengaged consciousness with the consciousness of Jewish entitlement to this Land.

A Treasured Nation

And when G-d your G-d will bring you to the Land to which you come to inherit it, and you shall give the blessing on Mt. Grizim and the curse on Mt. Eval. (From this week's Torah portion, Re'eh, Deuteronomy 11:29)

Professor Adam Zartal finished his archeology studies before the Yom Kippur War and soon began his research of the Biblical inheritance of Menashe. In the days after the Six Day War it was still possible to roam freely in the area, and the kibbutznik from Ein Shemer enlisted volunteers to comb the area - meter by meter - in search of archeological artifacts in Samaria. A previous war had left him paralyzed in both legs, but he continued to dig in the area. And his legs and crutches brought him to an amazing discovery: The altar of Joshua on Mt. Eval (pictured above).

Zartal was not looking for the place where the blessing and curse ceremony had taken place because he did not believe the Biblical story. The Biblical archeologists who had come to Israel from Europe and America at the end of the 19th century had all failed to find the altar. Zartal, who did not believe in its existence, did not even recognize the large, unusual structure he had found.

But it was the altar. All the professional parameters proved it without a doubt. The structure fit the dimensions for the altar recorded in the Mishnah and contained large amounts of bones of pure, one year old animals. Even earrings and signet rings created in ancient Egypt were uncovered at the site.

If Professor Zartal's find had reinforced worldwide academia's views on the Bible, he would have won the Nobel Prize. Instead, he encountered a wall of severe opposition to all the solid proofs that he brought. The reason that he was the subject of academic opposition also appears in this week's Torah portion: Because you are a holy nation to G-d your G-d and it is you whom G-d has chosen to be his treasured nation from among all the nations on the face of the earth. (Deuteronomy 14:2)

Being the children and treasured nation of the Creator of the world is a serious undertaking. It evokes much external and internal opposition. But there is nothing that can change that reality. It is our Jewish destiny and our future - and with G-d's help, we will proudly make it the reality in Israel.

Striking Contrasts - Paul Eidelberg

Ralph Peters, a former U.S Army officer and adviser of the U.S executive department is a strategic analyst who has travelled extensively in the Islamic world.

In his book Looking for Trouble, Peters describes Islam's degradation of women in Pakistan.  He writes:

For most women in Pakistan, life is circumscribed and miserable.  In the West, our spouses or lovers may also be our best friends, and in the healthiest relationships there is not only passion, but conversations about God and the world and the price of corn flakes.  In Pakistan, a wife may be an ally, but it is hard to imagine any wife as a best friend.  Men and women live in great separation, psychic as much as physical.  The woman is simply not a full-fledged human being in the sense that male is.  While a woman's chastity is respected (and occasionally exaggerated), this has nothing to do with her human rights, but with her status as an object—the property first of the family that spawned her, then of her husband.  She is rarely educated (almost never to serious effect), seldom employed beyond the home, and possesses, at best, the freedom of the pet dog, but without the master's unstinting affection.

This stands in striking contrast with the exalted status of women in Judaism, as exemplified in the Bible and in Jewish law.  It may be one of the reasons why Islam is more hostile to Jews than to people of other faiths. 

Here is a stark example.  According to the Babylonian Talmud (tractate Horayot 23a):  "If a man and his father and his [Torah] teacher were in captivity [for ransom], he takes precedence over his teacher and his teacher takes precedence over his father, while his mother takes precedence over them all [perhaps because of her greater vulnerability]."

There is no simplistic or doctrinaire egalitarianism in Judaism.  Thus, in his commentary to Tractate Kiddushin, the illustrious Meiri (Rabbi Menahem b. Solomon Meiri, 1249-1316) points out that "God is a partner in every person equally with the person's father and mother."

"Scripture mentions the father first in regard to honor" (Exod. 20:12); "the mother is mentioned first in regard to fear" (Lev. 19:3).  "This is to equalize the natural tendency to honor the mother and to fear the father."  Judaism is very rational, which may be another reason why Islam is so hostile to Jews.

Warrior Statecraft in an Age of Jihad - Paul Eidelberg

1) The modern doctrine of "conflict resolution," which has long exercised think tanks, political science departments, and democratic governments, is obsolete and even counterproductive.  This liberal humanitarian doctrine presupposes that the parties to a conflict share the basic values of Western civilization.  It should be obvious, however, that Islam and other bellicose or imperialistic ideologies like communism and Nazism, make nonsense of this doctrine.  Even a superficial knowledge of history informs us that some conflicts have no solutions short of war—for example, the Arab-Jewish conflict which began in 1918 with the promulgation of the Balfour Declaration.

2)  Instead of vainly seeking a peaceful solution to this conflict, Israeli statesmen should think of winning it.  Hence, their minds should be preoccupied with the subject of war and of preparing the nation for war—both physically and intellectually.  Their pathetic "information" campaigns about Israeli democracy and Israel's devotion to peace—intended to win international support and affection—are worse than useless.  They disarm their own people; they arouse the contempt of Arabs; they confuse public opinion in the democratic world; and they foster western appeasement of the Arab-Islamic world.

3) The Israeli statesman—assuming he possesses intellectual integrity and moral courage—must go on the offensive.  He must warn his people about the pernicious nature of the enemy, its deadly objectives. He must warn the people that their lives and property, their cherished beliefs and values, are in danger.  He must tell them that self-indulgence and materialism, passivism and moral relativism, are mortal enemies which in the past led to the defeat and destruction of Athens, of Republican Rome, of France and Czechoslovakia. 

4) The statesman must remind his people that their well-being ultimately depends on their having something noble to fight for: freedom and self-government, justice and human dignity.  He should arouse in his people pride in their own past and achievements, how they owe their present freedom and prosperity to the sacrifices and heroism of their fathers and ancestors, and that it is their sacred duty to preserve and augment these blessings for posterity.

5) Like Harry Truman, the Israeli statesman should carry a copy of Plutarch with him.  The better to understand human nature and war he should study Thucydides.  He should review the war-time speeches of Churchill.  And, as Sun Tzu warns, he should not yield to public opinion.

6) Unlike certain American presidents he should be hardheaded and convey to his people a clear sense of moral priorities.  He must understand that a democracy's success in wartime ultimately depends on civic virtue and strong family ties which the democratic state tends to undermine by fostering secularism and self-indulgence.

7) Confronted by global jihad, the statesman must know how to counter the effete tendencies of humanitarians and the benign but Alice-in-Wonderland doctrines of sheltered academics.  These overly civilized individuals of our consumer-oriented democracies forget that the desire for safety, wealth, power, and glory—which continue to motivate of human nature—are the engines that drive men and nations to war, and they demand eternal vigilance.  

8) The statesman must be fully aware of the ruthlessness than animates our enemies—the enemies of civilization—and he must be capable of employing ruthlessness to prevent their encroachment.  An "outreach" diplomacy is sheer folly; a "carrots and stick" diplomacy is futile, and so too is the policy of "reciprocity."  Unlike Jews and Americans, the enemies of civilization are not interested in understanding us or in resolving differences. They want to kill us.  Hence it is our duty to kill them first.

Study of the Islamic Trilogy, the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sira published in 2007

From Prof. Eidelberg

(Note: whereas the Hadith consists of Islam’s oral traditions, the Sira consists of biographies of Muhammad used to develop the Hadith and Muslim Law, Sharia.)  The study was made by Bill Warner, director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam.  (Cited in Moorthy S. Muthuswamy, Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War (Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, 2009), pp. 54-55.)

● Of more than 153,000 words in the Quran, only 4,018 or 2.6 percent seem to express goodness to humanity, qualified, however, by obedience to Muhammad. 

● The words of Allah are only about 17 percent of the Islamic Trilogy, but the words and actions of Muhammad comprise 83 percent of the Trilogy.
● About 20 percent of the most authoritative school of the Hadith is about Jihad.

● At least 75 percent of the Sira is about Jihad.

● There are 146 references to hell in the Quran, only 6 percent of which concern moral failings such as murder and theft.  The other 94 percent of the reasons for being in Hell are for the intellectual sin of disagreeing with Muhammad, a political crime.

No public official dares say that Islam is the greatest threat to Western civilization. (Apart from risking his life, he might be indicted for a hate crime.) True, it is known and admitted that Islam has enslaved countless women.  It has also been reported that since the time of Muhammad, Muslims have slaughtered 270 million human beings!  ( June 2, 2009).

Nevertheless, while the Quran calls infidels dogs and pigs, Islam remains a sacred cow. 

Ahmadinejad Convoy Attacked In Suspected Assassination Attempt

(Wednesday, August 4th, 2010)

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was unharmed by an attack with a homemade explosive device on his motorcade during a visit to the western city of Hamadan on Wednesday, a source in his office said.

The source said Ahmadinejad’s convoy was targeted as he was travelling from Hamadan’s airport to give a speech in a local sports arena. The president was unhurt but others had been injured in the blast. One person was arrested.

“There was an attack this morning. Nothing happened to the president’s car,” the source told Reuters. “Investigations continue … to find out who was behind it.”

Ahmadinejad, who has cracked down on opposition since a disputed June 2009 presidential election, appeared on live Iranian television at the sports stadium in Hamadan. He was apparently well and made no mention of any assault.

Al Arabiya television said an attacker had thrown a bomb at Ahmadinejad’s convoy before being detained. Dubai-based Al Arabiya cited its own sources as saying the bomb had hit a car carrying journalists and presidential staff.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

On Monday, during a speech to a conference of expatriate Iranians in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said he believed he was the target of an assassination plot by Israel. “The stupid Zionists have hired mercenaries to assassinate me,” he said.

What is the warning to send that the Islamists are here?

Cordoba Call?  I- Alert? When will the Humanists see or listen?

What will it take? Israel National Radio Rabbi Tovia singer has said for years that it
will take a massive disaster, surpassing 9/11 to throw us into a frenzy.

He must be right. Even Bloomberg was going to support the Cordoba victory building in
the 9/11 zone. Is he nuts? Has he lost his mind? Here is a politician that bought his office with his own $... and he still obviously bows to politics!

The vote in NY was 9-0 ...were these people threatened? does that seem unlikely?
We are dealing with a historically murderous group that have apparently tortured and killed more than 270 Million in the name of ....

This is obviously the cult of cults. It deserves full attention and action.

Rabbi Kahane (Kahane Tzadak) would have been able to deal with this quickly and with appropriate force. All in! BHO is a mystery...believe he is a Islamist? If not, he certainly understands then and is submissive to their culture etc.

Where is the strong leader we need? Post WW2 it was Eisenhower...General Eisenhower!
We need less President and more General now!
The Congress is well suited to take of the homeland operations. We now need a military leader to do what needs to be done.

I always hear that if you remove all of the Islamists (by whatever means necessary) that the Jews will be next, nonsense. We will be taken out by assimilation first.

This is a matter of survival. The only threat to the Country or Western Civilization is Islamism.
The cells are ready and they are organized in the Saudi built Mosques the US and also in Eurabia. These Mosques must be torn down and their members forcefully deported!
It really doesn't matter what the Humanists say, the time is now....before it is to late.
We see them in the grocery store and where....where else do they go?
The mosque, for training.  NOW is the time, the time to find a military leader to do the right thing and rid the US of these infiltrators.

Who speaks for the innocent?
Who acts for the innocent?
Who will stand up for the innocent?
Who will lead?
Who can lead?

I invite your thoughts!!!!


None Dare Call It . . . What? By Cal Thomas

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich may be the most notable public figure in some time to state the obvious: radical Islam is a clear and present danger to America.
In a speech last week at The American Enterprise Institute in Washington, Gingrich said, "this is not a war on terrorism … this is a struggle with radical Islamists." The problem, he said, is that too many leaders are "sleepwalking" and won't face the threat.
Ask yourself: if you wanted to infiltrate a country, wouldn't a grand strategy be to rapidly build mosques from Ground Zero in New York, to Temecula, Calif., and establish beachheads so fanatics could plan and advance their strategies under the cover of religious freedom and that great American virtue known as "tolerance," which is being used against us?
The best people to consult on such matters are those with the life experiences and knowledge to credibly comment on the subject. After all, we can't expect those who wish to destroy us to tell the truth, can we? Except that they do tell it by their words and deeds throughout much of the world. The problem isn't that they're not telling. The problem is that too many are imprisoned in denial.
One such expert is Yoram Ettinger a former Israeli diplomat and current commentator. He comments on Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and the West's feckless response through meaningless sanctions and empty rhetoric, Ettinger writes: "Western policy-makers grow increasingly reconciled to co-existence with a nuclear Iran. They assume that, notwithstanding the radical rhetoric, the Iranian leadership is pragmatic, cognizant of its limitations, unwilling to expose its people to devastating Western retaliation and considering nuclear capabilities as a tool of deterrence -- and not as an offensive weapon -- against the U.S., NATO and Israel.
"However, a nuclear Iran would constitute a clear and present danger to global security and peace, which must not be tolerated. In order to avert such peril, it is incumbent to disengage from illusions and engage with realism."

Realism is a quality clearly lacking in much of the rhetoric from this and previous administrations.

Ettinger continues: "Unlike Western leaders, the Iranian revolutionary leadership is driven by ideological and religious conviction, bolstered by ancient imperialist ethos:
"1. Jihad is the permanent state of relations between Moslems and non-Moslems, while peace and ceasefire accords are tenuous.
2. The Shihada commits every Shiite to kill and be killed, in order to advance Shiite Moslem strategy
3.The strategic goal of Shiite Islam -- which replaced illegitimate Judaism and Christianity -- is to convert humanity to Islam."
That seems pretty straightforward. Is there anyone who can credibly doubt these stated goals? If not, why are we pretending radical Islamists don't mean it when they repeatedly prove they do?
Some of the zeal directed toward illegal aliens crossing our southern border might better be focused on securing America from radical Islamists. Instead, they build their mosques with minimal opposition from the squishy politicians and elites who could stand against them if they had any backbone. And so those radical Islamists who would dominate America move forward with plans to subjugate us all to their religion and way of life. If the Nazis or Soviets had been this good at infiltration and neutralizing criticism, we, not they, would be on "the ash heap of history."
If at that critical moment in our history, Paul Revere had not devised the plan to light signal lanterns in the belfry of Old North Church for fear of being called an "Anglophobe," Queen Elizabeth's picture might be on our money today.
Radical Islamists are here. Who else besides Newt Gingrich and too few others will sound the call? Who else has the power to do something while they still can?

Lebanon is the latest "Tool"

It is interesting how there seems to actually be a co-ordinated effort to keep Israel in the News...without the help of the BBC or Al Reuters.

The flotilla, then the misfired rockets at Eilat and now the action in the North.

Is the region gearing up for War, one squabble at a time? what is the tipping point for us in the Galut?

 Perhaps it is the decoy Jews in the Netherlands? The Cordoba Mosque in NY? French Anti-Semitism.....All of these are acts perpetrated by Islamists...or Muslims as the Humanitarians tend to call them.  They are there to do what they are doing.
The Torah said Ishmael would become "a wild donkey of a man" and would be in constant struggle with others.

The Lord promised:
  • To make his descendants one great nation
  • That his descendants would live in hostility with all his brothers
  • That his descendants would live to the east of all his brother
 This is the Jihadi come lately nation. Those that copy and can not do for themselves.

We know the Cordoba Mosque is the usual Islamist way of saying we beat you and now we will poop a new Mosque over your old valued place.

When will the blind US public see what is going on?

Even Mayor Bloomberg was going to support the Cordoba...The ADL said no and I don't even have to check with the JDL or Kach party....

Kahane Tzakak!!

Special Update: Israel-Lebanon Border Clash

Benjamin Sack
Director of National Initiatives
Department of Public Diplomacy

Earlier today, Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) used snipers to fire at IDF soldiers in northern Israel, killing Lt. Col. Dov Harari from Natanya and wounding another soldier. The incident occured east of the internationally recognized border, known as the "blue line," and west of the security fence, thus lying in Israeli territory. The land in between the "blue line" and the security fence is the same area where two soldiers were kidnapped by Hezbollah in 2006. The IDF activity today was routine and coordinated with the UNIFL; Lebanon was alerted about the procedure three hours in advance. Israel holds the Lebanese government fully responsible for this deplorable incident and clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. Prime Minister Netanyahu stresses the need for international condemnation. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman authorized Israel's UN Ambassador to lodge an offical complaint against Lebanon with the UN Security Council.

Trouble...Trouble in River City! - Cordoba Terrorist Mosque

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has denied a request to grant ‘landmark status’ to 45-47 Park Place in Lower Manhattan. Plans to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque at the building will likely proceed.

Opponents of the center include many family members of 9/11 victims who say the mosque is too close to ground zero.

The vote was 9-0.

A part of one of the planes that destroyed the World Trade Center twin towers landed in the building on September 11th.

Members of the audience shouted “Shame on you!” at the commission after the vote.

Opponents of the plan will continue their fight with lawsuits.

FLARE-UP: IDF Clashes With Lebanon – Three Lebanese Soldiers Killed

A day after rockets were fired at Eilat, loud explosions were reported on the northern border as Israeli and Lebanese forces engaged in massive exchanges of fire.

Security sources and witnesses in Lebanon said three Lebanese soldiers and a local journalist were killed in the clash.

The fire erupted after IDF soldiers performing routine operations in a border-area enclave within Israeli territory came under fire. Northern residents have reportedly been ordered to enter secured rooms and bomb shelters. Lebanese sources also reported exchanges of fire between Israeli and Lebanese forces. According to one report, the Lebanese Army fired at an Israel tank.

A Lebanese army spokesman told Ynet that the clashes erupted after Israeli soldiers attempted to uproot a tree on the Lebanese side of the border.

According an AFP correspondent, soldiers from the Indonesian contingent of the UNIFIL forces in the area tried to calm the situation, unsuccessfully.

UN peacekeepers in Lebanon called on the Lebanese and Israeli armies to exercise maximum restraint following the border incident.

The “decoy Jew” has now been added to the police attributes.

Add  the Netherlands to the list of places taken over by thug Islamists.

Israel remains the only safe place to wear a Kippah in the Streets.

The only place. I would not think of wearing mine outside in Upstate NY


Canary in the Coalmine: Europe’s “Decoy Jews”

Created 2010-06-24 10:50
“Decoy Jew” is a new phrase in the Netherlands. Jews are no longer safe in major Dutch cities such as Amsterdam. Since 1999, Jewish organizations in the Netherlands have been complaining that Jews who walk the Dutch streets wearing skullcaps risk verbal and physical attacks by young Muslims. Being insulted, spat at or attacked are some of the risks associated with being recognizable as a Jew in contemporary Western Europe.
Last week, a television broadcast showed how three Jews with skullcaps, two adolescents and an adult, were harassed within thirty minutes of being out in the streets of Amsterdam. Young Muslims spat at them, mocked them, shouted insults and made Nazi salutes. “Dirty Jew, go back to your own country,” a group of Moroccan youths shouted at a young indigenous Dutch Jew. “It is rather ironic,” the young man commented, adding that if one goes out in a burka one encounters less hostility than if one wears a skullcap.
In an effort to arrest the culprits who terrorize Jews, the Amsterdam authorities have ordered police officers to walk the streets disguised as Jews. The Dutch police already disguise officers as “decoy prostitutes, decoy gays and decoy grannies” to deter muggings and attacks on prostitutes, homosexuals and the elderly. Apparently sending out the decoys has helped reduce street crime. The “decoy Jew” has now been added to the police attributes.
The deployment of “decoy Jews”, however, is being criticized by leftist parties such as the Dutch Greens. Evelien van Roemburg, an Amsterdam counselor of the Green Left Party, says that using a decoy by the police amounts to provoking a crime, which is itself a criminal offence under Dutch law.
Unfortunately, the situation in Amsterdam is not unique. Jews in other Dutch cities also regularly complain about harassment. So do Jews in neighboring countries.
On Monday, the Belgian newspaper De Standaard reported that large numbers of Jews are leaving Antwerp for America, Britain or Israel. Antwerp – nicknamed the “Jerusalem of the North” – is one of the major centers of Jewish culture in the Low Countries. “In London, you are not harassed if you wear a skullcap, but here you are,” a young Antwerp Jew told the paper.
Kleinblatt, a famous Jewish Antwerp bakery, which has been handed down from father to son since 1903, will soon break with that tradition because the baker’s son has emigrated to the U.S. “We no longer feel safe and welcome here,” a young Jew who is leaving for London told De Standaard. “Muslim immigrants blame us for what is happening in Israel.” Another young Jew, who is leaving for New York, says: “New York is a paradise for Jews. Unlike Belgium, non-Jews in America are pro-Israel.”
Ultra-orthodox Jews remain in Antwerp, but the less orthodox are leaving in droves. Even Jacques Wenger, the director of Shomre Hadas, the Jewish community center in Antwerp, is emigrating to Israel. If the current trend continues, he predicts, in fifty years’ time there will be no Jews left in Antwerp except for the ultra-orthodox.
It is often said that the Jews are the canary in the coalmine. When the Jews feel compelled to leave, the light of freedom is being extinguished. Something is badly wrong when the police need to deploy “decoy Jews.” Once again, the specter of anti-Semitism is haunting Europe. If the Europeans do not stand with the Jews, they deserve no freedom themselves and cities such as Amsterdam and Antwerp will soon be Islamic cities.
