Haaretz....Horrifying Cartoon


Thursday, October 30, 2014 -- Today, the left-wing Haaretz newspaper in Israel published a disgraceful cartoon without caption by Amos Biderman, depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu piloting a plane marked, "ISRAEL," into a skyscraper resembling a World Trade Center tower.

ZOA National Chairman of the Board Dr. Michael Goldblatt has issued the following statement:

"We are completely appalled at the Haaretz cartoon showing the Israeli Prime Minister flying a plane bearing the name, "ISRAEL," into a U.S. skyscraper.

"It is utterly poisonous, hysterical and wrong to suggest that disagreement between an Israeli government and the U.S. Administration -- a disagreement over vital matters of peace and security, in which the democratically-elected Israeli government has every right and duty to disagree if it sees fit -- is comparable to an act of evil suicide terrorism of the 9/11 variety that struck the United States 13 years ago.

Temple Mount was only closed to Jews, and that Muslims are still going up.

Temple Mount Closed to All Muslims and Visitors – (Update) Or Not

Following the assassination attempt on Temple Activist Yehudah Glick Wednesday night, outside the Begin Center in Jerusalem, the police have decided to restrict access to the Temple Mount to all Muslims, until further notice.

As always, Jewish access is always restricted.

The decision was based on police intelligence assessments and security concerns.

Yehudah Glick underwent surgery at Sharei Tzdek hospital after being shot by a man on a motorcycle, who first confirmed Glick's identity before shooting him.

UPDATE: Moshe Feiglin reports that in fact the Temple Mount was only closed to Jews, and that Muslims are still going up.

Knesset Deputy Speaker MK Moshe Feiglin was standing with Yehudah Glick at the Begin Center, when the assassination attempt happened.

Here is Feiglin's account of the attack, posted on his Facebook page:

Here is what happened earlier: The Temple Mount movement held a conference tonight at the Begin Center in Jerusalem. I had spoken and left the Begin Center about half an hour before Yehudah was shot. At the end of the event, Yehudah, accompanied by Manhigut Yehudit General Director Shai Malka, walked outside to his car.

There was a motorcyclist with his helmet on standing there.

He turned to Yehuda in a thick Arabic accent and said, "Yehuda, I am angry at you," and then shot him three times point blank.

The flaccidity of the defense mechanism and Minister for Internal Security Aharonovitz in the face of the Arab violence constantly perpetrated against Jews on the Temple Mount encourages further violence and has brought about this attempted murder. The most important response to this despicable act is to open the Temple Mount to Jews now – tonight. I will be at the Temple Mount tomorrow morning at 7:30. Please join me.

Moriah Halamish, a young woman who attended the Begin Center conference added that the shooter first asked if he was Yehudah Glick, to which Glick replied, yes, at that point he said "I am angry with you", and then shot him.

Please pray for Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rivka Ita Breindel.

Jerusalem has been abandoned. The Temple Mount is being defiled.

Yehuda Glick's blood is screaming for the implementation of Israel's
Sovereignty in Jerusalem and for the application of Israeli
Sovereignty over all of Eretz Yisrael!

The public is asked to pray for Yehuda's recovery: Yehuda Yehoshua Ben
Rivka Ita Breindel

 Terrorist deliberately targets leading advocate for Jewish Temple Mount rights, leaving Glick seriously injured.

Yehuda Gilck, a leading advocate for Jewish rights on the Temple Mount, has been very seriously wounded after being shot in Jerusalem on Wednesday night, Arutz Sheva has learned.
Glick was shot outside the Begin Heritage center in the capital, witnesses said, after a terrorist pulled up in a scooter or motorcycle and shot him before fleeing the scene.
Initial reports are indicating that Glick - who founded and heads the LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount - was deliberately targeted for nationalistic reasons, but police have not yet officially announced a motive.
The Begin Center had been hosting an event to help in efforts to re-establish a greater Jewish presence on the Mount Wednesday night, just before the activist was shot.
He has been rushed to Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center for immediate medical treatment.
Magen David Adom (MDA) spokesman Zaki Heller said that Glick was shot in the upper body no fewer than three times and paramedics had barely had time to speak to him during the initial stages of treatment.

Head of Temple Mount Movement Rabbi Yehuda Glick Shot in Jerusalem

The Temple Mount movement held a conference tonight 10/29 at the Begin Center in Jerusalem. MK Moshe Feiglin had spoken and left the Begin Center. At the end of the conference, Head of the Temple Mount Movement, Rabbi Yehudah Glick, accompanied by Manhigut Yehudit General Director Shai Malka, walked outside to his car. There was a motorcyclist with his helmet on standing there. He turned to Rabbi Yehuda in a thick Arabic accent, made sure of his identity and then shot him three times point blank. Rabbi Glick is in emergency surgery, in serious condition. Please pray for the speedy recovery of Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rivka Ita Brenda. 

MK Moshe Feiglin: The writing was and is still engraved on every possible wall. The flaccidity of the defense forces and Minister for Internal Security Aharonovitz in the face of the constant Arab violence against Jews on the Temple Mount - coupled with persecution of Jews on the Mount and the prohibition against Jewish prayer there - encourage further violence and have brought about this attempted murder. The most important response to this despicable act is to open the Temple Mount to Jews and to remove the prohibition against Jewish prayer there. 
 I will be at the Temple Mount tomorrow morning at 8:00. Please join me. 

Where Are the Jewish Organizations?

PM Netanyahu in New York, addressing Jewish leaders

I'm going to make this short and simple.

Disagreements are one thing, but vulgar and crass language is a something else.

The AlephBet soup of American Jewish organizations had better stand up and show some self respect and prove they're worth all the donations they receive and accolades they claim, by demanding an apology and retraction from the Obama Administration to the Jewish People for this crass and vulgar insult to the leader of the Jewish People.

It's that simple.

Bennett: Obama Plans to Throw Israel Under the Bus

Responding to Jeffrey Goldberg's recent article "The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here" which can practically be summed up as an insider's guide to the Obama administration's upcoming strategic plan to harm Israel, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said,
"If what is written is true, then the current administration intends to throw Israel under the bus."
Bennett elaborated,
"Israel is stronger than any disparager. The Prime Minister is not some private individual. He is the leader of the Jewish State and the Jewish world as a whole. Vulgar remarks directed against an Israeli Prime Minister are hurtful to the millions of citizens of Israel and Jews worldwide.

It isn't the leader of Syria, who has slaughtered 150,000 of his citizens, nor the leader of Saudi Arabia, who stones women and homosexuals, who are being called a "chickenshit".

If what is written is true, then the current [US] administration intends to throw Israel under the bus.

Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and we have struggled throughout our 66 years for our existence.

Israel is the vanguard of the free world against the Islamic terrorism of ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran.

Instead of attacking Israel and forcing suicidal conditions on her, strengthen her.

I call upon the United States government to renounce and reject this vulgar remark."

Palestinian reconciliation to Israel's existence

Published by The Jerusalem Post
October 21, 2014

Sir, - The vote in the British parliament ("PA calls on UK gov't to follow parliament's lead and recognize Palestinian state," October 15) is distressing but hardly surprising.

The upsurge of international opprobrium directed at Israel is a product of the Oslo Accords.

Once the idea was conceded that creating peace was chiefly a matter of addressing the lack of Palestinian statehood and not addressing the lack of Palestinian reconciliation to Israel's existence, the deck was stacked against Israel.

Western governments ended up accepting the logic implicit in dealing with the PA - that the Palestinians must be seeking just ends like statehood alongside Israel, not Israel's elimination, and that concessions from Israel were therefore the key to peace.

As long as we comport ourselves to the falsehood that Palestinian statelessness is the root of the problem we can expect the world to largely take the view not that the Palestinians won't accept peace with a Jewish state of Israel, but that Israel has not offered enough; that anti-Israel boycotts and divestment campaigns will become commonplace; that anti-Semitic activity will rise; and that parliaments like Britain's will debate recognizing "Palestine" as if that were the heart of the matter.

Netanyahu: Israel Facing an Attack on its Right to Exist

 Netanyahu: Israel Facing an Attack on its Right to Exist


Netanyahu responds to U.S.: I am under attack for defending Israel

Hours after U.S. official quoted calling Netanyahu 'chickenshit', PM says alliance between Israel and U.S. is still strong despite arguments.


5775 From the Galut - MOT Status

1) World is turmoil:

A) Middle East ....ISIS, Terrorism, Oil, Jordanian UNRWA Refugees, Climate Change?, Racism,

B) Putin

C) North Korea

D) Islam

E) Ebola

F) Feckless UN

G) Obama

So it is 5775 and lets focus om the World from a Jewish perspective:

Israel - Strong and vibrant, without torah leadership and still trying to be one of the Nations and not the light. The Coalition shifted to the right, but the polices are not quite up to par

A)  Settlements - build baby build

B)  Rock throwers - shoot them...then they will stop

C) Jerusalem is the capital - Enforce it!

D) Arabs - Expel all Arabs from Judea, then Samaria, then Israel proper, then Gaza...Deliver them ALL to Jordan. If they are willing to move home...give them bus tickets and a check otherwise round them up and deport them. This will clean up the Knesset.

E) US - tell them that loan guarantees are not needed and then we can build our own SUPERIOR tanks and planes. Tell them there embassy has to be in Jerusalem and that we are expelling the Arabs and encouraging Aliyah.

F) Temple Mount - Immediate proclamation that Israel is in charge and that the Temple Mount restoration will begin, including removing any illegal buildings on that property. Then the 3rd Temple will be built.....enter Moshiach.

G) Each child will get a Jewish education and the laws of Torah will be enforced = no bus,train etc on Shabbos...violators of these rules will be financially fined. No pork will be allowed in etc....

H) - Manhigut Yehudit

The Ultimate Objective: Redemption
Since the Nation of Israel was born, its ultimate aspiration has been the coming of Mashiach and the complete and final redemption. Unlike the very partial goals of modern Zionism (safe-haven, peace, international recognition, etc.) the goal of redemption is all-inclusive and redefines the motivation for the return of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel. It illuminates the life of the Nation with a new light, content and consciousness – for the individual and for the whole.
Our Sages have defined various stages in the process leading to redemption. These stages include establishing sovereignty, waging war against Israel’s mortal enemies, building the holy Temple on the Temple Mount and the ingathering of the exiles. The culmination of the redemption process is, of course, the Messianic era, when the world will be rectified and united in its service of G-d.

A Jewish State must have a clear and solid Jewish identity; not necessarily a religious identity, but a cultural identity. We oppose religious legislation. Instead, let us allow the Jewish cultural common denominator to freely develop. There is no law requiring circumcision but the vast majority of Jews – observant and non-observant – circumcise their baby sons. This principle can be applied to other religious legislation, as well. If the community desires, it should be able to institute  privately provided public transportation on Shabbat. The same goes for commerce on Shabbat. We can rely on the Jews, who, by a vast majority – more than 80% – are deeply connected and committed to their Jewish identity. Coercion elicits an  opposite reaction. We must highlight and empower our Jewish identity by removing the barriers of fear and coercion, allowing the true will of the majority to be expressed in fashioning our national Jewish identity.

Iran - still working on its Nuke program. 

Syria - A Civil War

Egypt - Sort of up in the air...Neutral for now...

Lebanon - Syria is busy and Hezbollah is paused...

Jordan - terrified that the UNRWA refugees will come home

Africa - Ebola, Famine...the usual..

Russia - Putin is just the USSR being the USSR

Malaysia - still looking for the plane that is probably in Pakistan.

India - To many people

China - Computer, Economic Warfare and treating humans badly.

Australia - Creeping Sharia and anti-semitism from the former prison colony....

South America - turned their food into petrol, kidnappings, drugs, exporting children to US...

Mexico - running to the US ...or are they?

Canada - First terror just happened in Ottawa, lets see what the people that are straight forward do...NO PC BS I would assume.

Ukraine - Never forget Babi Yar - forget Ukraine...they are all yours Putin.

North Korea - Dear leader, Nukes, starving own people, eating and exporting dogs for food....

Germany - many, many secular Jews are moving to Berlin....guess they don't have to worry about the Redemption wormholes by being secular

Austria & Poland - still think its 1942

Lithuania - cemetaries and nothing

Spain - offers citizenship after the expulsion of 1492. I think Columbus (the Jew) left for the new world on the same days the Jews had to leave by...hmmmm


To be continued!

Shalom Shalom

Sovereignty is gaining momentum

From the Women in Green

Dear Friends,

1) Here is a link to the short video of the amazing event we had on
Sukkot at Oz veGaon in which close to 1500 people participated.

2) Sovereignty Legislation is Gaining Momentum - the Fourth Issue of
Sovereignty is Published

Women in Green is opening the year with the distribution of the fourth
issue of the journal Sovereignty. Minister Katz, MKs Struk and Yishai,
people from academia, law, and philosophy call for Israeli sovereignty
over the entire area of Judea and Samaria.

The fourth issue of the Sovereignty journal has been published. The
Sovereignty journal leads the public in their call to promote the
Right's alternative to the delusion of dividing the Land, which the
Left has been pushing until now, and which collapsed in a clatter with
the terror war.

The fourth issue of Sovereignty, which is published by the Women in
Green movement, is dedicated to the memory of the philosopher and
publicist Uri Elitsur, obm, who passed away a few months ago.
Throughout the issue, sections are distributed from articles that
Elitsur wrote, dealing with the issue of Israeli Sovereignty over
Judea and Samaria and dealing with the complexity of the Jewish vision
of holding onto all areas of the Land.

Among the pages of the new issue, which is distributed in one hundred
thousand copies in Hebrew and another fifty thousand in English, there
is an interview with Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz, who
describes his plan for the promotion of the idea of "Greater
Jerusalem",  an idea whose essence is the application of sovereignty
over the areas of Gush Etzion, Ma'ale Adumim and other areas, thus
determining new political facts on the ground as the first phase
toward the application of sovereignty over the entire area. Likewise,
MK Orit Struk presents law proposals that she is promoting together
with MK Yariv Levin to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. These
law proposals have already been written and are now waiting for the
right political moment to be moved along in the process. In this issue
of Sovereignty 4, MK Eli Yishai presents his vision of economic peace,
which does not include withdrawals or division of the Land, a process
that he sees as endangering the future and security of the Land and
the future of its residents.

A rare and special interview was granted to Sovereignty 4 by the
authoress and journalist Joan Peters, who wrote the book From Time
Immemorial, which caused an upheaval in people's world view in Israel
and in the world at large, as it exposed the lies that have been part
of the Israel-Arab conflict during the past one hundred years. In this
exclusive interview, Peters relates to the role of the UN, which has
been fanning the flames of conflict and she relates to the idea of
Israeli sovereignty as the only alternative which should be promoted.

In this issue of Sovereignty 4, one can also find an interview with
Prof. Efraim Inbar, head of the Begin-Sadat center, who states that a
cold analysis teaches us that a Palestinian state simply cannot exist,
and Professor Avraham Tzion, who describes one to one, the failures
and mistakes that the governments of Israel have made throughout
recent history, mistakes that have resulted in our increasing  loss of
the State of Israel's rights of sovereignty over the Land.

The researcher Dvir Raviv presents some of the Jewish archaeological
findings that were discovered throughout Judea and Samaria and
complains about the impotence of the Israeli authorities in the face
of Arab antiquities robbers, who ruin and loot invaluable findings
linking the Jewish People to this strip of Land. Rabbi Baruch Efrati
presents his opinion according to Jewish law and Torah about the
matter of sovereignty and former Deputy Minister Ayoob Kara presents
the political goal according to his view, a political goal that links
the Arabs of Judea and Samaria to the Kingdom of Jordan.

Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, the heads of Women in Green, which
is the movement behind the publication of the journal, stress the
importance of what they see as promoting the process of consciousness
and hasbara (public relations) in implementation of the vision of
sovereignty among policy makers in the Knesset and government as well
as among the general public. According to their words, the insights of
Operation Protective Edge have clarified the dangers of a Palestinian
state to the general public, as something that would endanger the
heart of the Land and robs the Jewish People of its historic past and
its rights to the Land. Katsover and Matar see this as the right time
to present "the most ethical and realistic Zionist alternative, the
vision of sovereignty". According to them, "the more the conclusions
from Operation Protective Edge are internalized among the Israeli
public, the higher the expectations for a political alternative that
will stand strong against the delusional plan to divide the Land. In
the new issue, which is a direct continuation of the three that
preceded it, we continue to present the vision of sovereignty as an
obligatory step toward "do good" after internalizing the obligation
that we all have to "turn away from evil".

The two women report on the great enthusiasm that has greeted the
previous issues of Sovereignty. "It is a fresh Zionist breeze. The
people are thirsty for this new and confident voice stating that this
is our Land and that we can implement and realize this declaration".

The Journal will be distributed as an insert in today's Friday edition
of the Jerusalem Post.

On Monday October 20th, it will also be online at www.ribonut.co.il

For those wishing to receive a hard copy-please, email us your name
and full address and we will send it to you by snail mail.

Moshe Feiglin: Four Steps to Balanced Economic Growth

“Israel is a wealthy country and its wealth, thank G-d, is increasing,” said MK Moshe Feiglin. “But most of the abundance that our Father in Heaven showers upon us (particularly since the wonderful aliyah to Israel from Russia in the 90’s) is concentrated in the upper decile of Israeli society,” Feiglin stated.  “Below them”, Feiglin continued, “everyone is choking, paying taxes over their heads. The Israeli ‘food chain’ enslaves the young couple. They work long and late hours and serve in the reserve army while their chance to buy an apartment or home grows increasingly distant. In the meantime, their hard-earned tax money goes to pay for the former Attorney Generals, who receive a budget-based pension of close to 100,000NIS monthly, or the career army soldier who retired at 45 and also receives his budget-based pension, or to an array of other traditional power-holders and ‘insiders’ who live the good life at the pinnacle of the pyramid.”
“For years,” MK Feiglin added, “I have been explaining that there are four simple steps that Israel must take to lower the cost of living in Israel:
  1. End the state monopoly on land (restoration of the Land of Israel to the Nation of Israel in the most personal way)
  2. Free market: Completely open the Israeli market – particularly the food market – to competitive imports.
  3. All-out war and liberation of the state from the clutches of the vested interests and swamps of corruption in the Defense Ministry (which must submit to a deep budget cut), the Health Ministry, the large workers’ unions and additional power hubs within and without the government.
  4. Elimination of the ‘peace industry’. This death process has cost Israel one trillion shekels to date. In other words, Peres, Beilin and friends have already taken 600,000 NIS from every family in Israel for their illusions of peace – and the register is still ringing. Instead of sending trucks of cash to Gaza, send them to Israel’s poor.”

Moshe Feiglin: Israel’s Lack of Jewish Identity Invites Arab Admiration of Bashara

Bnai Sachnin, to former Knesset Member and Hizbollah spy Dr. Azmi Bashara, has awakened the ire of Israeli government ministers,” said MK Moshe Feiglin. “But I will tell you a secret: At this very moment,  the spy’s portrait adorns the walls of the Jerusalem Knesset offices of some of Israel’s Arab Knesset members.”

“In other words,” Feiglin continued, “the Bnai Sachnin soccer team is not at all alone in its open admiration of the enemy. But as opposed to the offended Israeli ministers, I totally understand Bashara’s popularity in the Arab sector. After all, the State of Israel did not prosecute that despicable spy, who used his Knesset-bought phone to direct the Hizbollah’s incoming missiles during the Second Lebanon War. Azmi Bashara did not flee Israel’s Security Service. He was caught, and then allowed to slip over the border into Jordan. (For many years afterwards, Israel continued to pay him a sizeable pension as a former MK). If the Jews are so forgiving of the worst of their enemies, what do we expect from the Arabs?” Feiglin asked.
“Why did Israel release Azmi Bashara? Because his trial would have revealed the big lie that is Israeli identity. “You Jews thought that you could force your Israeli identity upon me,” Bashara would have said. “But I am a proud Arab.”
It is the Israeli who is disconnected from his Jewish identity who needs the Arab to help him forget that he is a Jew. “If an admired Arab leader cannot be a Knesset Member, then clearly, the new Israeli identity simply doesn’t work and we will remain stuck with our Jewish identity”, the Israeli powers that be reasoned. “It is best to allow him to flee, leaving us safely inside our false Israeli identity.”
Bnai Sachnin and Bashara are not the illness; they are the symptom. When they State of Israel truly comes to terms with its Jewish identity, it will be able to demand full loyalty of the Arabs. And the Arabs will be happy to comply.”

MK Moshe Feiglin: Arab Violence on Temple Mount Fans Flames of Terror in Israel

In a response to the murder of a three month old baby on Wednesday evening in a Jerusalem terror attack, MK Moshe Feiglin said that  at the Knesset Interior Committee meeting on 17 Av (August 13) he had warned that lack of police response to Arab violence on the Temple Mount would eventually lead to the murder of Jews .

“For years,” said Feiglin, ” Israel has been deceiving itself into thinking that it can manage the height of the flames on the Temple Mount without restoring its control there. But this approach breeds even more terror. The Hamas violence that goes unchecked on the Temple Mount dangerously undermines Israel’s existence. The sense of victory that we allow our enemies to feel in the heart of our capital fans the flames of their hope to defeat us – and encourages them and all their allies around the world to continue their efforts to destroy us.”

Invoking the words of the  poet of castigation and faith, Uri Tzvi Greenberg, Feiglin continued,”‘He who controls the Mount controls the Land’. The way to protect our babies in Jerusalem and throughout Israel is to re-establish Israeli control of the Temple Mount.”

Bibi Proposes Stiff Sentaces for Rock Throwers!

A Palestinian Arab winds up a slingshot before throwing a rock towards Israeli soldiers.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told senior officials on Monday to prepare a new law that would call for up to 20 years in jail for attacks cars and people with rocks and for economic sanctions on parents of offenders who are minors.
Anyone who has been on the receiving end of a rock, as most residents in Judea and Samaria outside of Maaleh Adumim have been, knows the sound of the body of their cars being smacked, a window smashed , or their own bodies being bloodied and their bones broken by rocks.

On the Cusp of a Feiglin Revolution

Last week, Moshe Feiglin hosted a very special event in HaYarkon Park in Tel Aviv to toast the new year and to celebrate reaching 100,000 “likes” on his Hebrew Facebook page (a 125% increase in 3 months). Several hundred people came, mostly from the Tel-Aviv area, mostly kippa-less, in tank tops and t-shirts.  As I went around the crowd, I talked to people about their reasons for being there and what attracted them to Moshe Feiglin.  Several themes emerged:
  • The old ideas aren’t working. Moshe is the only one with any real alternative.  Let’s give his ideas a try.
  • Moshe is the only politician who speaks truthfully, who holds consistently to what he feels is right, and who doesn’t zig-zag based on the current political winds.
  • Moshe is the only guy in the political arena who makes any sense.
  • Moshe’s plan offers the best real chance for peace.  (This was from a self-described “peace activist”)
I’ve spoken to a number of Manhigut Yehudit supporters in the last few weeks who have told me that their leftist friends no longer know what to make of Moshe.  

They used to have him pegged as a right-wing extremist and an enemy.  Now they’re confused and curious and more and more are finding themselves surprisingly supportive of some of his initiatives. More and more of the true leftists are seeing Moshe as their champion for peace and for liberty.  This seems to be particularly true of those who are younger, in their 20’s and 30’s.

It feels like we’re on the cusp of a political revolution here in Israel, one that unites dati and non-dati, left and right, and Moshe Feiglin is the face of that revolution.  His vision is the only one that is broad enough to include all sectors of Israeli society.
