Louis Farrakhan 7/4/20 spewing Antisemitism

 

Black Lives Matter is not only a godless Communist race-baiting organization dedicating to ending the Founding Fathers’ Constitutional government and fomenting violence against White Americans, BUT they are now a group of dedicated Jew-haters joining Islamists lying about Israel’s Biblical land of Judea-Samaria.

 

In this video exposé the BLM is exposed promoting Land stolen by Arab Muslims calling themselves Palestinians (a group of Arabs created in 1964 ex nihilo by Muslim Jew-haters and the now non-existent USSR to terrorize Israeli Jews) as occupied. Biblically allotted/Promised land is Jewish land. Any Jew-hating people residing in land given by God are the actual violent occupiers. Of course Muslims don’t view that due to the false-prophet Jew-hating Muhammad and anyone dedicated to Communism are atheists. What strange Red-Green bedfellows.

TOM TRENTO, Director of The United West introduces Damon Rosen’s powerful expose of the Marxist organization “Black Live Matter.”

 

Not only is this terrorist group intent on destroying America but it also has its sights on Israel, working with Islamic terrorists, in a Red-Green axis, to destroy any and everything that has a Judeo-Christian foundation.

 

How can any Jew or Israel-supporting Christian support this organization or movement?! Its leaders and spokespeople are openly hostile to the Jewish state and people. It’s ironic that the people preaching against hate and intolerance, are among the most hateful, intolerant groups on Earth. Please watch and share this video, especially with your family and friends who have been caught up in the media-induced hysteria.

 

Damon Rosen is an investigative activist with The United West and currently lives and works in Israel.

Radical Left’s Hatred of America & Israel Binds Them: ‘Democrats Keep Pushing to Unravel U.S.–Israel Relationship’


Dems hate Israel and support those who hate Israel; ergo a vote for a Dem on any level of politics (local, State and National) is a vote for racist Jew-Hatred Antisemitism. That includes self-loathing Left-Wing Jews who’d rather support Marxist Dems than their Jewish heritage in Israel.

 

Adina Kutnicki essentially states my position.

Radical Left’s Hatred of America & Israel Binds Them: ‘Democrats Keep Pushing to Unravel U.S.–Israel Relationship’

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

The Democrat Party of yesteryear, tradition-wise, has always been supportive of Israel. No longer. At its base, this support, for the most part, has always been derived from the shared values inherent within both nations.

 

As it stands, the Party’s current incarnation (as it moved left-ward, incrementally, over a period of years) is ideologically imbued and invested in Israel’s destruction. America’s, too. This tragic truth is plain for all to see, that is, if one’s eyes are wide open enough to absorb the seismic upheavals taking place all over America.

 

Indeed, those pulling the strings within the Democrat Party are more than thrilled that domestic terrorists are tearing the nation down. To wit, they lend them more than a wink and a nod. In reality, they are cheering them on and funding them! For starters and for further edification, commence your educational journey here:

 

‘ANTIFA Announces Formation of a Red Army in U.S. The Violent Left Says They Want a Shooting Civil War’ – BLM in the Forefront

 

Not only that, the ammunition being used to separate the heretofore special bond between the U.S. and Israel is based on the mother of all lies, that is, that Israel is a usurper and an “illegal occupier” of another’s land!

 

But don’t take this word for setting the record straight towards the truth of all truths. Rather, read for yourselves what is enshrined in international law, as well as in historical fact. The preeminent expert in this legal arena is Howard Grief (deceased, June 2013).

 

Legal Rights and Title of Sovereignty of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel and Palestine under International Law

 

In this regard, the following should be more than enough reason  — at least, for all those who still believe that truth matters  — for so-called traditional Democrats, centrists, if you will, to jump ship. Overboard.

Democrats Keep Pushing to Unravel U.S.–Israel Relationship

 

New letter from progressives to Pompeo brings harmful ideas to the forefront of American politics – By Steve Postal | July 9, 2020

 

The Lawfare Project sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter opposing progressive Democrats’ “uninformed and inaccurate” policy proposals towards Israel. The Lawfare Project, according to their website, provides legal counsel and services to, and protects the free speech of, members of the Jewish and pro-Israel community. According to the Lawfare Project, the progressive Democrats’ labeling Israel’s plans to establish control over parts of Judea and Samaria as “annexation” rather than “sovereignty” places the Democrats at odds with U.S. law, “which has long recognized the rights of the Jewish people to a national home in Palestine.”

 

The Lawfare Project’s letter to Speaker Pelosi was in response to another letter sent by progressive Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and others to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in late June. This progressive letter is the latest in a series of Democratic communications that serve to harm the U.S.–Israeli partnership. Democrats are now bringing harmful and false ideas, once considered taboo, to the forefront of American politics. Those ideas are the following:

 

The “settlements” in Judea and Samaria are illegitimate.

 

Contrary to popular wisdom, Israel has a right to build the “settlements,” which are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the heartland of the Land of Israel. (There are currently about 450,000 Israeli citizens living in Judea and Samaria, in addition to another 215,000 living in eastern Jerusalem.) The Trump administration, in the Pompeo Doctrine, stated that it does not recognize the “settlements” as illegal.

 

In contrast, the progressive Democrat letter mentioned above calls the “settlements” “illegal” under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Presidential candidate Joe Biden also recently said that continued “settlement” building “will choke off any hope for peace,” despite the Palestinians’ consistent rejection of any peace proposal regardless of the presence, absence, and number of “settlements.”

 

Israel’s claim to Judea and Samaria is an “occupation.”

 

Israel’s claim to Judea and Samaria is not one of “occupation,” and Republicans know this. I could not find any reference of the Trump administration referring to the “occupation.” Also, a letter addressed to Netanyahu in support of Israel, signed by 120 House Republicans in late June, does not mention “occupation.”

 

In contrast, Democrats are convinced otherwise. The progressive Democrat letter mentioned above refers to Judea and Samaria as “occupied Palestinian territory,” “Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967,” and “occupied West Bank,” with Israel being the “Occupying Power.” Biden is also on the record for opposing the so-called “occupation.”

 

Israel does not have a right to apply sovereignty to at least some of Judea and Samaria.

 

Israel has a right to apply sovereignty at least some of Judea and Samaria, and Republicans know this. The Trump administration has recognized that right by allowing Israel to apply sovereignty to about 30 percent of Judea and Samaria. The House Republican letter, mentioned above, states that “Israel has the right to make sovereign decisions independent of outside pressure,” and “reaffirm[s] Israel’s right to sovereignty.”

 

In contrast, Democrats are convinced otherwise. Biden has stated, “I do not support annexation. The fact is, I will reverse Trump’s undercutting of peace.” Further, over 190 House Democrats signed a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Alternate Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Gantz, and Foreign Minister Gabriel Ashkenazi opposing any Israeli move of “unilateral annexation” to any part of Judea and Samaria. The progressive Democrat letter threatens “nonrecognition of annexed territories.” A letter signed by Senate Democrats, including Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, written to Netanyahu and Gantz in May also opposed “annexation” six times in four paragraphs.

 

The U.S. should condition aid to Israel on Israel not building in Judea and Samaria.

 

U.S. aid to Israel dates back to the 1973 Yom Kippur War and is money that Israel spends mostly in the United States. This aid has long been independent of Israel’s relationship with the Palestinians. Continuing this tradition, Biden said that he would not place conditions on military assistance to Israel. But the progressive Democrat letter threatens legislation that would cut U.S. aid to Israel if the latter moves forward with sovereignty. The progressives are thus “subordinating [the U.S.–Israel relationship] to the Palestinians or, more precisely … subordinating it to the extensive demands American progressives make on behalf of the Palestinians.” Bernie Sanders, IfNotNow, and 1,000 alums of J Street U, the student arm of J Street, supported such conditioning of aid to Israel in separate statements.

 

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement is OK.

 

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement is an anti-Semitic campaign to destroy Israel. President Trump signed an executive order, which in part threatens to withhold funding of universities that support BDS. To his credit, Biden “firmly reject[s]” BDS. But the progressive Democrat letter, while it does not expressly address BDS, is endorsed by multiple organizations that support BDS, including American Friends Service Committee, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Churches for Middle East Peace, Defense for Children International — Palestine, and the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights. Each of these organizations is additionally problematic, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon. For example, AMP, Defense for Children International — Palestine and U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights have been connected with fundraising for terrorist organizations. In fact, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez purposefully sought support of the progressive Democrat letter from these groups.

 

Recent statements by Democrats is the latest in a push to continue to make Israel a partisan wedge in U.S. politics, one that I previously discussed in The American Spectator. It remains to be seen if moderate voices within the Democratic party will be able to reclaim the narrative. Until then, the Democratic party will continue to undermine the U.S.–Israel relationship.

Israel’s Leftist Generals, Blue & White Party Leaders, BETRAY Majority Zionist Public: A Decision Which Will Live In Infamy!

 

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

March 26, 2020 8:19am

Adina Kutnicki – A Zionist & Conservative Blog

 

WITH all eyes on the fall-out from Coronavirus, it is at this critical juncture in time that Israel’s Blue & White leadership, a so-called “centrist” party, sunk to the depths of betrayal. Yes, they will go down in Israeli history as the double-crossers of the Jewish homeland – and it is no exaggeration! Ignominious.

 

Benny Gantz, Gabi Ashkenzai, and “Bogie” Ya’alon, & 2nd to right, Yair Lapid

 

AS former Generals, the “Three Banditos” (Benny Gantz, Gabi Ashkenzai, and “Bogie” Ya’alon, + featured second to the right, Yair Lapid….a dumb as bricks career politician who entered politics on his father’s coattails, that is, Tommy….nepotism at its ugliest form) entered the political arena with a leftward tilt, never mind their (past) Zionist bonafides. Lo and behold, having fought the very same Arab Muslim enemies on the battlefield, they have now embraced the radical, anti-Zionist, anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist Arab Joint List as their coalition partners!

 

EGREGIOUSLY, in a most cynical betrayal, they have aligned with the enemies of the Jewish State to cement their grips on power. Simply put, to catapult into the political fray, they found it politically expedient to curry favor with Israel’s leftist triad; the media, the legal, and the academic fraternities, among others – those who never miss an opportunity to back-up the fifth column within the Jewish State! By the way, the aforementioned triad are mirror images, ape-like, of the fascist-left in the U.S. Yes, it is true.

 

CONSIDER the following as indictable charge-sheets:

 

CHARGE-SHEET ONE:

 

When the Joint List, the Arab party that emerged as Israel’s third largest in the recent round of elections, endorsed Benny Gantz as its candidate for prime minister on Sunday, pundits took to every available perch to declare the moment historic. After all, no Arab party has ever endorsed a Jewish leader, and Ayman Odeh, the party’s Obama-esque leader, seized the moment properly by tweeting a line from Psalms. To many, this felt like a breath of fresh air, a surge of coexistence and compromise after Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard-line policies.

 

The hosannas, however, are premature: The Joint List, sadly, remains a vehemently anti-Zionist party whose members have often expressed their support for convicted terrorists. All it takes is a brief look at the party and its principles to learn why Gantz—whose Blue and White party is currently Israel’s most popular, with 33 Knesset seats—should immediately and forcefully reject this endorsement.

 

Most egregious among the party’s members, perhaps, is Heba Yazbak. A doctoral student studying gender and colonialism at Tel Aviv University, Yazbak has occasionally taken to Facebook to praise convicted terrorists, most notably Samir Kuntar. On April 22, 1979, Kuntar, the teenage son of a wealthy Lebanese family, landed a rubber dingy on the shore of the northern Israeli town of Nahariya. Together with three other terrorists, he shot and killed a police officer before breaking into the apartment of the Haran family and taking them hostage. Smadar, the family’s mother, managed to hide with her 2-year-old daughter, Yael. Fearful that the toddler’s cries will give them away, she stifled the child’s whimpers, accidentally suffocating her to death. Kuntar then led the family father, Danny, to the nearby beach, together with his 4-year-old daughter, Einat. When IDF soldiers arrived to free the hostages, Kuntar executed Danny in front of his daughter’s eyes. He then grabbed Einat, and, using the butt of his rifle, smashed her head against a nearby rock.

 

Kuntar was released from Israeli prison in 2008 in return for the bodies of two fallen Israeli soldiers. He received a hero’s welcome from Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, and continued to plan attacks against Israelis, earning himself an international terrorist designation from the United States Department of State. He was killed in 2015 in a strike south of Damascus, which many believe was orchestrated by Israel.

 

In addition to praising Kuntar, Yazbak also publicly supported an Israeli-Arab citizen indicted for being a Hezbollah spy. Israel’s Supreme Court—which approved the disqualification of two far-right politicians for alleged incitement to violence—found no problem with Yazbak’s opinions, allowing her to run for office.

 

After being accused of spying for Hezbollah, Bassel Ghattas, another Israeli-Arab MK, served a prison sentence for smuggling cellphones to a convicted Palestinian terrorist.

 

Just behind Shehadah, at No. 3, is Ahmed Tibi, the former adviser to Yasser Arafat. A popular fixture with Arab leaders the world over, Tibi has cozied up to anyone from Bashar Assad to Muammar al-Qaddafi. In 2012, he was reprimanded by the Knesset after delivering a speech in Ramallah to celebrate the International Day of Shaheeds, or martyrs. “The occupier wants to call you terrorists,” he said, “but we say there’s nothing more noble than dying for your homeland.” The Knesset’s Ethics Committee denounced Tibi, calling his speech “cheering on terrorism and violence.”….continue reading the “who’s who in Arab terror” that Blue & White leaders have joined forces with!

 

CHARGE-SHEET TWO:

 

Minister of Education, MK Rabbi Rafi Peretz referred to MK Ayman Odeh‘s attack on Knesset Speaker Edelstein after his resignation.

 

“Blue and White, this is on you. Take a look at how an MK who supports Hamas and Hezbollah talks about Yuli Edelstein, Speaker of the Knesset, former prisoner of Zion, a man who has sacrificed [much of his life] for the State of Israel. A sad day for the State of Israel.”

 

“You are all to blame for breaking the delicate balance that has always been within the Knesset during the formation of the government instead of putting the small politics aside and establishing a unity government which is so vital at the moment,” tweeted Peretz.

 

Members of the Joint List have consistently made anti-Israel and anti-IDF statements and shown support for terrorists.

 

CHARGE-SHEET THREE:

 

Several right-wing politicians and victims of Arab terrorism expressed rage after the Blue and White party led by Benny Gantz, which assumed control of several Knesset committees, gave the chairmanship of the Labor, Welfare and Health Committee to the Arab-majority Joint-List.

 

Members of the Joint List have consistently expressed anti-Israel and anti-IDF ideas as well as support for terrorism and terrorists……

The Welfare Committee has the care of terror victims under its purview.

Member of Knesset (MK) Kitty Shitrit of the Likud party accused Blue and White of “carrying out a targeted assassination of the public’s trust and seriously hurting the feelings of the bereaved families.”

 

Blue and White stated during its last campaign that it would not rely in any way on the Joint List for support, a promise it broke days after the elections.

 

Shitrit added that “there is no way to obscure this disgrace in which terrorist supporters are put at the head of a committee that deals, among other things, with the rehabilitation of the IDF’s disabled, with helping victims of terrorism and with the confiscation of allowances from terrorist families.”

 

The “three generals,” meaning Blue and White leaders Benny Gantz, Moshe Ya’alon and Gabby Ashkenazi, “will be forever remembered in infamy,” she said.

 

Elihai Ben Yishai, whose sister Ruth, her husband Ehud and three of their children were butchered in a terrorist attack in March 2011, called the new situation the “blood paradox.”

 

MK Ahmed Tibi of the Joint List, was “consultant to arch-murderer Arafat, and will chair the Welfare Committee and that take care of the status and rights of …victims of terrorism.”

 

TELLINGLY, all of which is best explained and fully exposed by the inestimable Caroline Glick via The New Arab Bloc and the Future of Israeli Sovereignty.


To this end, LISTEN IN FULL to the linked video recording. Do pay rapt attention to the part where she discusses HUSSEIN Obama’s interference (in 2015) in Israeli politics; his mischief-making, which, in turn,  gave rise to the (never before) empowered Arab Bloc! Mind you, it is hardly coincidental nor incidental that Blue & White hired the Obama administration’s chief political strategist to guide them! Hmm.

 

FINALLY, as enraging as it is that Israel’s war-horses sold out the national interest – yes, they did – it was not unexpected at this end. Not at all. This is more than supported by several analyses – two of which are prima facie evidence thereof. In fact, it was only a matter of timing when the “other shoe”, so to speak, dropped. It did.

 

  • Four years ago (April 2016), this site foretold the current unfolding disaster:

 

The Unmasking Of Israel’s Generals Via Toxic (Mis)Education: Knock-On Effects Of “Moral Relativism”- Endangering The Jewish Nation

 

 

QUESTIONS, anyone??

 

(The Joint List, March 11, 2020, looking triumphant – in the “cat-bird’s seat”, again, due to the “Three Banditos” and HUSSEIN Obama’s electoral interference – as they march into “negotiations” with Blue & White!)

I’d love to share the coffee business corporate name, but if you know anything about Network Marketing companies, they get a bit cranky about that practice in their policies and procedures. Suffice it to say my wife’s Network Marketing business provides FREE websites for online marketing. In my wife’s case she has bought several Domain Names linked to her website. My darling wife has told me the company has waved the sign-up fee for buyers during the pandemic crisis. You can access Diana Houk’s coffee network via this domain name: http://www.skinnyoptimumcoffee.com/.

 

Addressing my revenue issue. Among the many medical I’m overcoming I am only sharing one medical bill issue. I use a CPAP machine/mask in my sleeping hours. I need 10 people to donate $5.00 to my PayPal account to help pay a CPAP supply bill. It is my opinion this Pandemic is temporary and when over, our family revenue issue will self-correct. Until then please consider a onetime donation using the PayPal button on this Blog or this NCCR PayPal embedded link.

Benny Gantz and the pyromaniacal cockpit


It is apparent to me – an American – that Israel’s Left have become stupendous understudies of America’s Left. As America’s Left (Dem-Marxists) have developed Trump Derangement Syndrome to keep transforming America, so has Israel’s Left developed Netanyahu Derangement Syndrome that could very likely lead to the destruction of Jews in Israel to bow down to Jew-hating Muslim pseudo-Palestinians. Caroline Glick has the write-up.

BLOG EDITOR (In Fascistbook jail since 1/20/20): I’ve apparently been placed in restricted Facebook Jail! The restriction was relegated after criticizing Democrats for supporting abortion in one post and criticizing Virginia Dems for gun-grabbing legislation and levying protester restrictions. Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me completely. Conservatives are a huge portion of Facebook. If more or all Conservatives are banned, it will affect the Facebook advertising revenue paradigm. SO FIGHT CENSORSHIP BY SHARE – SHARE – SHARE!!!

Benny Gantz and the pyromaniacal cockpit

 

Cockpit Gantz Coalition

 

By Caroline B. Glick

03/22/2020

CarolineGlick.com

Originally Israel Hayom

 

If Blue and White Party leader MK Benny Gantz forms a minority government with Avigdor Liberman’s Israel Beitenu Party and the Labor-Meretz party, based on the outside support of the Joint Arab List, Gantz’s success will torpedo Israel’s relations with the United States.

 

This week, a senior official who was present during Gantz’s meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in late January revealed: “Gantz committed in the Oval Office that, if he became prime minister, he would form a government of people that would support the president’s peace deal.”

 

The Trump peace plan includes applying Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley and the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria. Labor-Meretz and the Joint Arab List are both violently opposed to the Trump plan. A Gantz government that includes them will be a government that is hostile to the Trump plan.

 

The only way for Gantz to keep the promise he made to Trump is to join a coalition government led by Netanyahu with Likud and its right-religious coalition partners. And that is an option that Gantz and his partners in the Blue and White “cockpit” – fellow former IDF chiefs of General Staff Moshe Yaalon and Gadi Ashkenazy and former media star Yair Lapid – will not support.

 

They are working feverishly to cobble together a radical government with the post-Zionists in Labor-Meretz and the anti-Zionists in the Joint Arab List. All of which will be hard-pressed to work with the Trump administration.

 

How can Trump or his administration trust a man who flat out lied to the President in the Oval Office?

 

What can explain Gantz’s irresponsible behavior?

 

Did he lie to Trump – and the Israeli public – because he and his colleagues are secretly radical leftists who seek power to undermine everything Israel stands for? They wouldn’t be the first leftist politicians to do so.

 

In 1999, their commander, former IDF chief of General Staff Ehud Barak ran against Netanyahu by presenting himself as ideologically indistinguishable from him. Barak insisted that he would implement Netanyahu’s center-right policies, but that he would do so with the support of the media and the leftist elite.

 

The public bought his act. Barak – the centrist – defeated Netanyahu and Barak – the leftist – offered PLO chief Yasser Arafat Judea, Samaria, Gaza, and the Temple Mount as well as the Golan Heights to Syrian dictator Hafez Assad.

 

Israel is a center-right country. Barak understood the only way for a leftist to win an election in Israel is to pretend to be a center-rightist.

 

Gantz’s willingness to effectively surrender Israel’s rights in Judea and Samaria to win the parliamentary support of politicians that seek Israel’s destruction as a Jewish state – shared by his partners in the Blue and White leadership – seems to indicate that they are rabid post-Zionists. But a brief consideration of their other positions and actions suggests that something else is motivating them.

 

Gantz and his colleagues present themselves as champions of the rule of law and democracy, which they insist, Netanyahu is destroying.

 

But consider their actions: Presently, Blue and White is viciously attacking Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein for refusing to convene the Knesset’s Arrangements Committee, which is responsible for convening the rest of the Knesset committees. They insist that in acting as he is, Edelstein is colluding with Netanyahu to destroy Israeli democracy. But as Simcha Rothman, from the Movement for Governability and Democracy, explained in Israel Hayom Thursday, it is Blue and White that is blocking the Arrangements Committee from convening.

 

The Knesset rules provide that membership in the committee is determined by the size of each party. The parties in the Knesset receive one member in the committee for every four members in their Knesset faction. Under the prevailing rules, the blocs working with Netanyahu and Gantz would have equal representation in the committee.

 

Blue and White wants to break the rules in order to receive a majority of Arrangement Committee members. Edelstein insists on following the rules.

 

Why are Gantz and his colleagues fighting so hard to break the rules? Because they need a majority on the committee in order to have the procedural power to pass laws that will undermine Israeli democracy and the rule of law.

 

Blue and White and Israel Beitenu have submitted bills explicitly directed towards achieving one goal: Preventing Netanyahu – and only Netanyahu – from forming a government. These bills, if passed, would overturn Israel’s rule of law twice.

 

First, they are personal legislation – directed at Netanyahu alone. Personal laws are a concept antithetical to the rule of law and liberty. They open the door for full-scale repression and authoritarianism.

 

Second, if they succeed in passing their anti-Bibi laws, they will retroactively nullify the votes of 2.5 million Israelis who voted for parties that want Netanyahu to remain in office.

 

Blue and White wages its war against parliamentary rules to pass vindictive, anti-democratic laws at a time where Israel is facing the gravest health and economic crisis it has ever confronted.

 

The Wuhan coronavirus epidemic presents Israel with a choice between terrible and terrifying options.

 

Tuesday, Netanyahu announced that in a bid to lower the infection rate, Israelis should stay home and only go out to buy food and medicine and other critical activities. Schools are closed. Most government offices are closed. Businesses are closed. The only people still working are the ones who can work from home.

 

Netanyahu and his colleagues in the government enacted this policy with the understanding that, if forced to treat thousands of coronavirus patients at once, the health system will collapse. Everything must be done to slow the infection rate.

 

But the quarantine strategy holds its own terrible risks. Israel can handle an economic shutdown for a few weeks. If the current situation goes on for months, the economy will collapse and bring the health system with it. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis are being laid off. They will not be paying taxes. Without taxes, the government will be unable to maintain the health system or any other system for that matter.

 

What can be done? It appears that the only way to suspend the quarantine and so salvage the economy is by conducting universal coronavirus testing. Only universal testing can limit the quarantine to people who need to be isolated and enable the restoration of economic activity.

 

How quickly can Israel achieve the capacity to undertake such a program? What would it involve?

 

What other options are available?

 

Netanyahu, his ministers, the Health and Treasury Ministry officials and the National Security Council members have been working around the clock to try to come up with solutions.

 

Where are Gantz and his partners – Lapid, Yaalon and Ashkenazy – in their brandishing “cockpit” on these issues?

 

Blue and White has offered no recommendations for fighting the epidemic. Although Tuesday night, Gantz was nice enough to retweet Netanyahu’s warning to the public to stay home. His partners Yaalon and Lapid were not so disposed.

 

Instead, the two would-be national leaders belittled the threat – each in his own way – and insinuated that Netanyahu is colluding with the Coronavirus to destroy Israeli democracy.

 

Yaalon tweeted that Netanyahu is using the Coronavirus to avoid his criminal trial and destroy the Knesset. He later threatened Likud parliamentarians with legal probes for supporting Netanyahu’s efforts.

 

In a Facebook chat, Lapid insinuated that Netanyahu’s move to quarantine the public was unlawful and self-serving. In short, that Netanyahu isn’t interested in protecting the public from mass death. All he cares about is staying in power.

 

Blue and White has offered no solution on how to save the economy from collapse. But they can be counted on to blame Netanyahu for the high unemployment rates and negative economic growth if Israel finds itself in a fourth election.

 

Yaalon, who seeks to serve as Education Minister, has offered no suggestions for how to educate the 1.3 million schoolchildren who are at home with parents trying to keep up with their own work while homeschooling their children.

 

Then there is Iran. As the coronavirus rages through Iran, experts warn that the risk of an Iranian strike against Israel rises with the death toll. The theology of Iran’s ruling clerics holds that the Shite messiah, the Mahdi, is supposed to return at the end of days. To hasten his arrival, Iran’s ayatollahs believe that they need to start Armageddon.

 

Do the three former IDF chiefs at the helm of Blue and White have any concern over this? Do they have any suggestions for how to handle the threat as Iranians dig more and more mass graves for coronavirus victims?

 

Which brings us back to Washington: Three weeks ago, I traveled to Washington to speak on a panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) – the largest conservative gathering in America. Most of the discussions were related to U.S. domestic issues. But Israel is so important to conservatives that organizers chose to hold a panel devoted to Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

 

There were no calls for the partition of Jerusalem and the expulsion of Jews from Judea and Samaria either on the panel or from the audience. On the contrary, the sentiment shared by the audience and the panelists alike was that Israel should assert its sovereign rights in Judea and Samaria wherever it deems necessary.

 

This salutary state of affairs will be turned on its head if the Democrats win the presidency in November. In that event, Israel will find itself under assault from a hostile president who heads a party hostile to Israel. How would a Blue and White government handle such a challenge? Dependent on the Joint Arab List – which openly seeks Israel’s destruction as a Jewish state – for its survival, there can be little doubt that Blue and White would surrender to even the slightest pressure emanating from Washington.

 

Gantz, Lapid, Yaalon and Ashkenazy are not ideologues  – unless detesting Netanyahu with the single-minded venom of a rabid dog is an ideology. They accuse Netanyahu of caring only for himself and pledge to put the country first. But we see that, as Netanyahu labors to save the country from medical and economic collapse, all they can think about is destroying him. Even at the expense of torching Israel’s relations with the U.S., endangering the lives and financial stability of its citizens, and disregarding strategic threats and opportunities. They accuse Netanyahu of destroying democracy as they contemptuously ignore Knesset rules in order to pass laws that would nullify both the rule of law and the votes of 2.5 million citizens.

 

So no, Gantz and his colleagues aren’t ideologues.

 

They are pyromaniacs.

“I intend to be the prime minister of every citizen of Israel, every right-wing voter, left-wing voter, Jews and non-Jews, every sector and every gender.” -PM Benjamin Netanyahu

“Tomorrow, after we’ve got some sleep, we will meet [with right-wing leaders] to form a strong, stable government, a good national government for Israel,” Netanyahu said to supporters at the Expo Tel Aviv, which served as the party’s election headquarters.

 

“This was a great victory for the right-wing camp, and first and foremost a victory for us Likudnikim,” he said following the third round of elections within the course of a year.

 

Vowing to avoid any more elections, he said that it is “time to heal the rifts.”

 

“I intend to be the prime minister of every citizen of Israel, every right-wing voter, left-wing voter, Jews and non-Jews, every sector and every gender,” he insisted.

 

Meanwhile, Blue and White Party leader Benny Gantz expressed his disappointment with the results to his supporters.

 

“I share your feelings of disappointment and pain,” he said at his party’s election headquarters in Tel Aviv, adding that he hoped for a “different result.”

 

Updated exit polls reduced Netanyahu’s right-wing bloc from 60 seats to 59, while giving Gantz’s left-wing and Arab party bloc 55 seats. Nevertheless, Netanyahu’s Likud remained firmly in the lead with 36 to 37 seats to Blue and White’s 32 to 33 seats, and close to being able to form a 61-seat coalition government.

Netanyahu: ‘They eulogized us – this is the biggest win of my life’

“The victory is even sweeter, because it was against all odds,” he [PM Netanyahu] said.

 

Calling it “the biggest win of my life,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a raucus crowd of the faithful at Likud election headquarters in Tel Aviv in a speech that began after 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

 

“The victory is even sweeter, because it was against all odds,” he said.

 

“They already eulogized us. Our opponents said, ‘the Netanyahu era is over.’ But together we flipped the script. We turned lemons to lemonade,” the prime minister said.

 

Cheers of “Bibi, King of Israel” filled the packed hall.

 

Exit polls showed the Likud with as many as 37 seats. On Tuesday morning, with 90% of votes counted, the Likud held 36 seats to Blue and White’s 32.

 

The right-wing as a whole leads 59 seats to the center-left-Arab bloc’s 54.

 

Still in campaign mode, Netanyahu said on Monday evening, “We plowed the country from north to south. There is nothing like the citizens of Israel. Israeli citizens trust us because they know that we have brought about the best decade in Israeli history.”

 

He then vowed to form a “strong, national government.”

 

“Tomorrow, after we’ve got some sleep, we will meet [with right-wing leaders] to form a strong, stable government, a good national government for Israel,” he said.

 

“This was a great victory for the right-wing camp, and first and foremost a victory for us,” he added, referring to Likud party voters.

 

Netanyahu also struck a conciliatory note, reaching out to non-Likud voters.

 

“I want to say, I intend to be the prime minister of every citizen of Israel, every right-wing voter, left-wing voter, Jews and non-Jews, every sector and every gender,” said Netanyahu.

 

“We must avoid any more elections. It’s time to heal the rifts. It’s time for reconciliation.”

A City like No Other – A Lesson in Life

What Makes Beverly Hills Unique 

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent  2/27/2020 12:47 AM

 

 

When my siblings and I went to Beverly, we were taught that “there is Beverly Hills and the rest of the world.”  Let us see what else we learned right here in Beverly Hills:  Treat the other the way you want to be treated, and he who spreads his bread is bound one day in the future to find it.

 

 

The headline of the main local paper read “Two Presidents in Beverly Hills on One Historic Day.”  One president was here to fundraise, the other for a short stop on a long route.  Since I did not quite understand the true meaning of this “historic day,” I continued reading, flipping the pages to find and astonishing amount of “Israel.”

 

In the previous administration, President Barack Obama was in Beverly Hills so many times, one lost count.  President Donald J Trump has not been here so frequently as his predecessor, but we knew each time he was here from the demonstrations against him.  Surprisingly, Beverly Hills Jews are apparently not all Democrats, and some would pay tens and hundreds of thousands of Dollars for a photo-op or to spent breakfast, lunch or dinner with the President of the USA.

 

On the same day, Israeli President Rivlin was here too.  Los Angeles was the first stop, followed by Pacific Islands on a long trip to Australia (still ongoing).  In Los Angeles, the President was honored by the Beverly Hills City Council and given the Key to the City and at UCLA by the Nazarian Center for Israel Studies.  Apparently, super-rich Iranians were able to reach the President who previously rejected an invitation by the local Jewish Iranian American community for a mega event in his and Israel’s honor.  Money does the trick, and even a president flies in to be honored.

 

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, center, accepted a key to the city from Beverly Hills Mayor John Mirisch (photo courtesy of the city of Beverly Hills – Photo appeared in Park Labrea News Beverly Press)

 

President Rivlin’s previous visit to Los Angeles was most hastily arranged, after the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America refused to have Prime Minister Netanyahu speak to it.

 

President Rivlin then (11/13/2017) emphasized: “We are all one people, and Israel is dear to all of us.”  On the Western Wall, the President said:  “The symbol of unity, the Wall of our Tears and Joy, has become a symbol of division and disagreement.  I hope that in the future we can return to the table together, and reach an understanding on this important issue.”

 

And he laid the following need for cooperation:  “These are the tasks before us; the fight against anti-Semitism, preserving Jewish identity, safeguarding the security of Israel.  We must continue to pass these duties to our children and grandchildren, from one generation to the next.”

 

The deep rift regarding prayer at the Western Wall still continues.  Neither the Prime Minister’s absence nor the President’s substitute speech helped.

 

Unlike New York, Los Angeles is far away from Israel.  Thus, the total number of times an Israeli president has been here since the formation of the modern state is de minimis.  When Israel’s ninth president, Shimon Peres of blessed memory, came to Los Angeles, the preparations took some two years.  The President met numerous groups, including a mega event at the Beverly Hilton and another at Dream Works.  It was most apt, for President Peres was respected by the entire world as a “Dreamer” (visionary, in the most positive sense of the word).  The entire region was energized.

 

Like his successor who would refuse to meet with the Iranian Jewish community, President Peres refused to meet with the Christian community, and declined an invitation to a mega event (the President’s requirement at that time was for at least 2,000 people to attend an event; the proposed event was for 5,000).  For each, his own priorities and preferences.

 

So here came President Rivlin, and like his previous visit, it was limited to those who are either super-rich or most connected.  Strange, since President Rivlin is viewed as the people’s president, loved and adored by Israelis for being “one of them.”  A once-in-a-lifetime treat that should be shared and open to the public at large, not only to a select few ended as a photo caption in one paper and a front page headline in another.

 

Israel and the Beverly Hills Courier

 

The coverage of the President’s visit would be a picture on p.2 of the other local paper a week after the visit and an entire issue immediately following the visit dedicated to Israel by the Beverly Hills Courier.  How strange life turns out to be.  Let me tell you why.

 

The BH Courier and the City of BH were always dismissed as insignificant by the Israeli diplomatic mission to the West Coast.  There were other newspapers (e.g. the Los Angeles Times), there were more important cities (e.g. Los Angeles).  So much so, that until the arrival of Consul General David Siegel [Jewish Journal-2011, Communications 2025 profile-2012 & GovServ.org-2019], the BH Courier was not even on the press list of the Israeli Consulate General.

 

The publisher of the Courier at that time, Clif Smith [Blog Editor: I didn’t do a deep search but found it interesting WikiZero’s report on Clif Smith’s publishing style as Conservative as if that was a bad thing.], wanted to meet with top Israeli visitors and hear from them.  His paper and the community are ardent supporters of Israel, and it would have been appropriate that the main local paper be paid the respect and be afforded the professional courtesy it deserved.  But for the staff at the Consulate, a local throw-away paper and a city of 34,000 were … nothing.  Luckily, we in Beverly Hills stand very well on our own.  We do good without expectation or anticipation of thanks.  And we continue our unabashed support of the only homeland for the Jewish people around the world no-matter-what!

 

Came a real diplomat and changed the culture and attitude at the Consulate.  After a pitch was made to include also the local – seemingly insignificant and unimportant – publications, Mr. Smith was invited for President Peres visit and a relationship started that is bearing fruit to this very day.

 

Similarly, slowly it was discovered that Beverly Hills is a unique city in the entire world in terms of Israel.  What makes the City so unique?  Its majority Jewish population?  The number of synagogues within its boundaries?  The large proportion of Iranians who call the City home (about 1/3 the entire City population)?  The leadership, at all elected entities – City Council, School Board, Treasurer – that is usually Jewish?

 

Beverly Hills and Israel

 

We can go back generations of BH City Councils and meet amazing people who have supported Israel in numerous ways.  Previously, mega donors to Israel call BH their home, and there is not a university, hospital or museum in Israel where their names cannot be found at the very top of the donors lists.

 

Then came to the City a philanthropist businesswoman, who does not even reside within the City proper, and turned the City into the strongest pro-Israel fort to be found anywhere in the USA.  Gina Raphael [Algemeiner author profile & JNF Interview] has utilized her connections in the City, her own money and her leadership style to do good.  She brought symposiums about water and cyber security to the City.  She marked 9/11 jointly with Israel, time and time again.  She brought the Director General of the Prime Minister’s Office (i.e. the Chief Executive of Israel) to celebrate Israel on Israel’s Independence Day (the one day he should have been in Israel).  She regularly brings the different elements of the community together (i.e. Ashkenazi and Sephardi, competing Rabbis, …).  Gina serves as an example for women in business, women in leadership and women of philanthropy and for parents who would do everything to have children, and she is a bulldozer when it comes to Jewish life and the Jewish people.

 

In short, Gina Raphael managed to change the landscape like a loving, most capable gardener tending to a garden.  A magnificent and most tender work of creation.  This happened at the same time that CG David Siegel was here and changed the attitude toward public diplomacy, that started with working with the press and treating each and every one as if they are the entire world (rather than dismissing those not useful at the very moment or not rich or not important enough as rugs on which to wipe one’s feet, possibly to be used in the future if and when convenient).  It was a new world order.

 

Since then, Israel’s situation continued to deteriorate and the hatred toward Israel continued to intensify.  Ancient anti-Semitism rose again, this time around disguised as “permissible criticism of Israel.”  The United States has seen some horrific anti-Semitic attacks on synagogues.  Hate crimes against Jews rose in numbers and intensity.  The BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement has spread and managed to poison innocent minds with lies and propaganda.

 

[Blog Editor: The BDS Movement is a grievous embodiment of Antisemitic Jew-Hatred as is demonstrated by facts  rather than lying propaganda:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Israel is compared to evil, and anything bad that happens to Jews is not punishment enough.  Companies like Air BnB and leading figures in the entertainment world like Natalie Portman take action against Israel, for talk has now morphed into action, and even local Jews of the younger generation now support organizations that harm Israel under the guise of “human rights.”

 

And then, there is Beverly Hills, an oasis of safety and sanity, a city where the great divide – between Democrats and Republicans, Netanyahu’s supporters and detractors, Reform and Orthodox Jews – has not managed to blindside those at the helm (“every elected member in the City is Jewish,” as Dr. Julian Gold likes to say).

 

A City like no other

 

Time and again, the Council stands up to fight anti-Semitism, to support Israel, to allow a safe haven for the Jews and to remember those who perished in the Holocaust.  Why do they do it?  Likely because any student of history knows that what starts with the Jews never ends with the Jews; that if we do not know our own history, we are bound to repeat it; and if we do not stand up and speak (and act), there will be no one left to stand up for us when the time comes.  Simple lessons; all practiced in Beverly Hills.

 

Nothing happens in vacuum, and the world has not come into being today.  The support for Israel has been a cornerstone of Beverly Hills for the past seven decades.  Giants like Guilford Glazer z”l [Blog Editor: For non-Jews who are unaware, when you see z”l after a person’s name, they are deceased (See CoffeeShopRabbi.com for some info)], Nate Shapell z”l, Max Well z”l, Larry Field z”l and others – many who survived the Holocaust.  Philanthropists like Paul and Herta Amir, Virginia and Frank Maas and Dick Ziman.  Past Mayors like Max Salter, MaraLee Goldman and Mark Egerman.  Journalists like Norma Zager, the former editor in chief of the Courier.  Local leaders like Sue Brucker (“How can we make Israelis understand we – Reform Jews – are Jews too?!?”).  Rabbis like Rabbi Laura Geller, Rabbi Yossi Cunin and Rabbi Kalman Topp (a Reform and two Orthodox; a woman and two men).  City Staff like Mahdi Aluzri and Pamela Mottice-Muller (an Iraqi and a Christian).  Religious leaders like senior pastor Dave Worth (of the BH Presbyterian Church).  In short – a community, Beverly Hills like no other.

 

It would not have happened without a push and a shove and a determination by a diplomat one rarely encounters in one’s life time, and a local mother-businesswomen-leader who focuses on doing good and away from nonsense, on substance than form.  But more importantly, the lesson to be learned is to never belittle the individual, or in this case, a tiny city, seemingly insignificant, or a local paper, equally “inconsequential.”  When you treat the “widower, orphaned and foreigner among us” as equal, as deserving and worthy, God repays, most handsomely.  Pay attention in life, for that is what God wants from us.  A dear lesson to learn indeed.  And if we ignore the other, we may end up finding ourselves … on our own.

Lessons From Palestinian Rule Over Bethlehem

What is so special about Bethlehem?

 

For Jews, the town’s holiness stems from its description as the burial place of Rachel, Jacob’s beloved wife (Genesis 35:19). Later on, the story of Ruth largely revolves around Bethlehem as the childhood home of King David and the place where he was anointed as king (Samuel I 16:1-13). Jewish tradition teaches that the Messiah will come from Bethlehem (Micha 5:2-5).

 

Christian tradition teaches that Bethlehem was the birthplace of Jesus (Matthew 2:1–12, Luke 2:4–20, and John 7:42). The Church of the Nativity was built by Constantine the Great in the 4th century CE over a cave believed to be the very spot where Jesus was born.

 

Bethlehem Now and Then

 

Sadly, this holy city has also become a city of contention.

 

The 1947 United Nations Partition Plan proposed placing Bethlehem, which is just six miles southwest of Jerusalem, under UN control as part of the Jerusalem international zone. During the War of Independence in 1948 which broke out after the Arab countries rejected the partition plan, the Arab Legion took control of Bethlehem. During these 19 years the Christian population declined from in the thousands.

 

Israel took control over the city in June 1967 during the Six Day War. The Christian residents asked Israel to annex the city and make it an official part of Israel but Israel rejected the idea, holding out for the possibility of it returning to Arab hands in the context of a peace agreement.

 

Bethlehem-Jerusalem Map

 

From 1967 until 1995 Bethlehem thrived. Christians came on pilgrimages to the Church of the Nativity in the millions and Jewish worshippers flocked to the revered Tomb of Rachel. Local vendors, restaurants, and hotels experienced great success as people from all faiths felt free to visit and walk the city streets.

 

But then in 1995, Israeli negotiations with the Palestinian leadership led to the Oslo II Accords in which Israel agreed to hand over civilian and security control to six cities – Jericho, Tulkarem, Nablus, Qalqilya, and Bethlehem.

 

Bethlehem’s longtime Christian mayor, Elias Frej, begged Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin not to give the city which has a majority Christian population over to the Palestinian Authority. He was afraid what Muslim rule would do to the Christians living there. But Israel, seeking a breakthrough in its relationship with the Palestinians, handed Bethlehem over to Palestinian rule on December 21, 1995.

 

Rachel’s Tomb

 

This led to a period of horrific unrest in and around the holy city. Palestinian snipers began shooting at Jewish visitors to Rachel’s Tomb and even killed IDF soldiers who were protecting those worshippers. At times, the holy site which was fortified with concrete walls and roofs, had to be closed because of the threats from Palestinian terrorists.  At other times visitors could only travel to the holy site in armored vehicles.

 

Aside from the attacks against Rachel’s Tomb, Bethlehem became a home base for terrorist cells and the launching pad for terror attacks against Israeli citizens. Its proximity to Jerusalem made the capital vulnerable. A few examples:

 

  • Dec. 5, 2001: Palestinian terrorist Daoud Ali Ahmed Saad was sent by the Islamic Jihad base in Bethlehem to blow himself up in the heart of downtown Jerusalem. He did so, seriously injuring five civilians.

 

  • Feb. 18, 2002: Palestinian terrorist Yasser Said Moussa Uda was sent by a Fatah/Tanzim terror group in Bethlehem to blow himself up next to a roadblock on a highway outside Jerusalem. He killed an Israeli police officer and seriously injured two civilians.

 

  • March 2, 2002: Sent by a Fatah/Tanzim terror cell in the Bethlehem district, Muhammad Ahmed Abd El-Rahman Derameh was transported to Jerusalem where he blew himself up next to worshippers leaving a Jerusalem synagogue. He was driven there by Ashraf Hajajara who also lived in the Bethlehem district.

 

  • March 17, 2002: Sent by an Islamic Jihad terror cell in Bethlehem, Akram Ishak Abdullah Nabatiti blew himself up at a major Jerusalem junction, seriously injuring 25 people.

 

  • March 29, 2002: Palestinian terrorist Ayat Mohammed Latfi al-Akhras from the Bethlehem district blew herself up in a main Jerusalem supermarket, killing two civilians and injuring 22.

 

  • March 31, 2002: Fatah operatives in Bethlehem prepared a bomb in a backpack and sent a 16-year-old boy to Jerusalem. The boy  blew himself up next to a health clinic, injuring six civilians.

 

Thus, Bethlehem became a base for Palestinian attacks against Israelis in Jerusalem. The mounting  casualties forced the Israel Defense Forces to enter the city repeatedly to search and arrest the terrorists. Israeli forces also worked to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure in the city. Not only were numerous suicide bombings thwarted, security forces also uncovered mortars and infrastructure for the production of rockets.

 

Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity

 

Israel also had no choice but to construct the security barrier which envelops Bethlehem, giving it the feeling of a city under siege. These measures sharply reduced the number of successful terror attacks, but with a Hamas terror cell strongly entrenched in Bethlehem, attempts continue.

 

Christians and their holy sites suffered terribly from the fighting, especially the Church of the Nativity during a month-long siege. On April 2, during the IDF’s Operation Defensive Shield of 2002, Israeli forces moved to arrest a number of Palestinian fugitives in the city. Fifty fled to the church compound where they held 200 monks hostage. After 38 days, the siege ended peacefully with the Palestinian fugitives agreeing to go into exile, some to Gaza and others to Europe. Israeli security forces found 40 explosives left behind in the church compound, a number of which were booby trapped.

 

Bethlehem’s Declining Christians

 

Aside from the challenges created by the security conflict, Christians see how radical Muslims persecute Christians throughout the Middle East and see that this has been happening since the Palestinian Authority was given control of the city. Examples of Palestinian Muslims intimidating their Christian neighbors include:

 

  • Land theft either by force or by forged documents, with little to no recourse in the PA justice system.

 

  • Muslim men harassing Christian women verbally or sexually.

 

  • Christian businesses forced to pay protection money.

 

  • Discrimination against Christians in job opportunities.

 

  • Churches being broken into, looted or vandalized.

 

  • Muslims who convert to Christianity face ostracism, assaults, even murder.

 

  • Kidnapping and forced conversion of Christians.

 

 

All of this has led to a significant decline in the Christian population in Bethlehem.

 

Bethlehem’s Shepherd’s Field

 

Whereas Christians used to make up a majority of Bethlehem’s residents, today, after 25 years of Palestinian control over the city, Christians make up only 20% of its population. (A similar occurrence took place in Gaza where 5,000 Christians lived in 2005 when Israel pulled out. After 14 years of Hamas rule,  only 1,000 Christians remain, and churches are often demolished.)

 

The situation in now Palestinian controlled Bethlehem stands in stark contrast to Israeli controlled Jerusalem, just six miles to the north. In Jerusalem the Christian population can practice their faith freely and securely. The Jerusalem municipality even provides free Christmas trees to Christian residents.

 

In fact, Israel is the only country in the Middle East in which the native Christian population increased since 1948. By the end of 2019, Israel’s Christian population stood at 177,000, having grown 1.5 percent according to the Central Bureau of Statistics.

 

The lesson is clear. Christians thrive with total religious freedom in Israeli-controlled areas, and suffer when Israel yields control to radical Palestinian forces.

The topic: the Trump Administration’s The Deal of the Century as laid out in the White House preliminary framework entitled, “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People”.

 

For me there is no getting around the 181 page document’s declaration that a Palestinian State would have its capital city in an Eastern portion of Jerusalem. I have read advocates of the peace deal claim it will be parts of Jerusalem already dominated by Arabs. If that geographical Arab domination includes the Temple Mount those physical dimensions MUST BE rejected by Jews and Christians.

 

Jerusalem – 1948 Quarters and Divided 1949-67

 

BUT the part of the plan I am beginning to slowly inch toward maybe is the part that is driving Islamic terrorist leadership Arabs calling themselves Palestinians nuts is a significant swath of Jewish Settlement areas of Judea-Samaria (labelled the West Bank by conquering Jordanians in 1948) becoming a part of sovereign Israel which must be recognized for the plan to move forward.

 

The God Plan for Israel

 

On a personal level it is my belief for Israel is God’s plan of the Promised Land to the descendants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. That means Arabs who refuse accept God’s plan should leave to Arab lands that practice hateful and intolerant Islam.

 

BUT I live in America and really don’t have a vote.

 

Caroline Glick tackles the duplicity of the Israeli Left which she indicates might be taking cues from the American Dem Party. If accurate, God have mercy on Israel and its probably brainwashed Left-Wing voters.

Israeli sovereignty and the fate of the Trump plan

Trump-Kushner-Bibi

 

By Caroline Glick

02/07/2020

Originally published at Israel Hayom.

CarolineGlick.com

 

On Wednesday morning, NeverTrump propagandist Bill Kristol told his MSNBC audience that Democratic chances of victory over US President Donald Trump will rise if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is defeated in Israel’s elections on March 2.

 

Along the same lines, if Netanyahu fails to apply Israeli sovereignty to the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria before the election, not only will he almost certainly lose those elections, his defeat will bury Trump’s peace plan and harm Trump’s reelection chances.

 

To understand why this is the case it is first necessary to understand the nature of the Blue and White party and its relationship to Trump and his peace plan.

 

After Trump’s peace plan was published, Israelis discovered significant problems with the map attached to the plan. Among other things, the map places large sections of Highway 60, which crosses Judea and Samaria from south to north outside Israeli jurisdiction. If left uncorrected, the designation will endanger the security of tens of thousands of Israelis whose communities will be rendered isolated enclaves. Since ensuring Israel’s ability to defend itself and its citizens on a permanent basis is a major goal of the plan, this omission was obviously an oversight. Netanyahu announced this week that he has assembled a team to work on the map.

 

So long as the map is not adjusted, members of Likud and other parties in the right-religious bloc Netanyahu leads will be unable to vote in favor of the plan, despite their support for Trump and for the plan overall.

 

This then brings us to Benny Gantz and his party.

 

Just before Gantz traveled to Washington to meet with Trump at the White House last Monday, it came out that his top campaign strategists, Ronen Tzur and Joel Benenson had both separately published multiple posts on Twitter viciously attacking Trump. Both men compared him to Hitler, called him a Russian agent and a racist. In other words, both men parroted Democratic talking points against Trump. (After his posts were reported, Tzur claimed that he no longer believed the things he had written.)

 

Whereas Tzur – like every garden variety Israeli leftist politico – apparently follows the Democrats on everything related to American public affairs automatically, Benenson shapes Democratic positions. Benenson served as Barack Obama’s senior political strategist in the 2008 and 2012 elections and as Hillary Clinton’s senior political strategist in 2016.

 

In 2015, Wikileaks published Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta’s emails. Several email chains included internal campaign discussions in which Benenson participated. In two discussions, Benenson advised Clinton not to mention Israel in public events.

 

Now Benenson is directing Blue and White’s campaign, and there is little reason for surprise at the seamlessness of his move from Obama and Clinton to Gantz. The Israeli left has been intertwined with the Democratic Party.

In 2016 when Gantz was still a private citizen, he was strongly encouraged to enter the political fray by a public service company called Darcheinu, or “Our Way.”

 

Darcheinu is the successor to two organizations – V-15 and One Voice. One Voice was established in 2003 by Daniel Lubetsky, a Mexican-American Jewish businessman with close ties to the Obama administration. Lubetsky founded One Voice at the height of the Palestinian terror war to advance the establishment of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines. PLO Chief and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s son Yasser Mahmoud Abbas is a member of One Voice’s Trustees Advisory Council.

 

Ahead of the 2015 Knesset elections, One Voice formed V-15 as a spinoff to run a campaign to “change the government” – that is, to bring down Netanyahu. V-15’s campaign was directed by Jeremy Bird, Obama’s field director in his presidential races. It came under scrutiny from the US Senate when it was discovered that the Obama’ State Department funded its efforts.

 

Establishing a Palestinian state and fomenting an Israeli evacuation of Judea and Samaria replete with the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Israeli Jews from their homes is a goal all three groups share with the Democratic Party. And like the Democrats, the goal places all three groups in opposition to Trump. Trump’s plan makes the establishment of a Palestinian state contingent on significant changes in Palestinian actions and positions. It also foresees Israel retaining permanently all Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria and the areas surrounding them as well as the Jordan Valley.

 

In recent years, Darcheinu continued V-15’s efforts to bring down Netanyahu. In 2017-18, it sponsored the weekly leftist protests outside Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s home demanding he indicts Netanyahu. Darcheinu also funded and promoted the 2018 campaign by the far-left Commanders for Israeli Security calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines.

 

Until 2019, Darcheinu was led by Israeli businessman Kobi Richter. Richter was one of the central activists responsible for forming the Blue and White Party last year. In an interview with Globes, Richter said that he paid for the polls that convinced Gantz to join forces with Moshe Yaalon, Gabi Ashkenazy and Yair Lapid.

 

According to officials with knowledge of the events, Gantz was well-aware of the substantive problems with the map attached to the Trump peace plan when he left Washington. And it is with this knowledge in mind that we need to consider what he did when he got back.

 

Upon returning to Israel Gantz declared that he intended to introduce the Trump plan to the Knesset for approval. Some commentators portrayed his move as proof that he supported Trump’s peace plan. But given his awareness of the problems with the map and the implications for the political right, the opposite appears to be the case. Gantz’s announcement can better be seen as a bid to subvert and discredit Trump’s plan and to discredit Netanyahu and Trump personally.

 

Without corrections to the map, Likud and other right-wing lawmakers who otherwise support the plan and enthusiastically support Trump will be unable to vote in favor of it in a Knesset vote. Forcing them to oppose the plan publicly would serve several interests shared by both Blue and White and the Democrats. It would provide cover for the majority of Blue and White lawmakers who, like the Democrats wish to bury the plan. With the media scope-locked on right-wing opponents of Trump’s plan, they will avoid scrutiny of their own views.

 

The sight of Likud lawmakers opposing the Trump plan would discredit Netanyahu in the eyes of his voters. They would view him as incompetent and treacherous and many will avoid voting on March 2 as a result.

 

In light of joint opposition to the Trump plan from Likud and Blue and White lawmakers alike, center-right voters will perceive the parties as indistinguishable and follow the media’s urging to vote for Gantz.

 

For Trump, a Knesset defeat of his plan, followed in all likelihood by the defeat of Netanyahu would demoralize and anger Trump’s evangelical Christian base. Blue and White would move quickly to bury Trump’s plan. The Democrats would use the Knesset’s opposition to the plan and Gantz’s support for their positions as proof that Trump’s pro-Israel bona fides are skin deep and that Trump’s overall Middle East policy is misguided.

 

In short, advised by Benenson, after enjoying Trump’s hospitality, and benefiting from the prestige a meeting at the Oval Office confers, Gantz raised an initiative that would cause grievous political harm to Netanyahu and Trump and destroy any prospect of implementing any part of Trump’s peace plan.

 

And so we return to the issue of applying Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

 

In light of the need to correct the mistakes in the map, it is clear that full implementation of Israeli sovereignty over the areas the Trump deal recommends will take time and will be impossible before March 2. But it is still possible to implement a significant component of the plan in a manner that will avert the damage Gantz and Benenson are seeking to cause.

 

Gantz has studiously worked to prevent his party from being identified with the ideological left. To achieve this goal despite the fact that the majority of his Knesset faction holds leftist and far-leftist views, Gantz has used the two center-right lawmakers from his party’s minority Telem faction as his campaign’s primary spokesmen on television. Whereas Yoaz Hendel and Zvika Hauser are pushed in front of microphones to extol the virtues of extending Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, the majority of Blue and White lawmakers, who share Obama’s views, are hidden in the shadows.

 

Without changing the maps, and while postponing approval of the Trump plan itself, the Netanyahu government can pass a government decision to apply Israeli law to all Israeli cities, towns, and villages in Judea and Samaria immediately in accordance with the Trump peace plan. Doing so will energize right-wing voters. And it will also expose Blue and White.

 

Applying Israeli law to the Israeli communities will arouse strenuous opposition from the majority of Blue and White faction members. Their opposition to a move that the majority of Israelis support would demonstrate that despite its right-wing fig leaves, Blue and White is a leftist party. Swing voters from the center-right would get the message.

 

This then brings us to the Democrats. For years, despite their protestations of support for Israel and commitment to Israel’s security, the Democrats have adopted a policy towards Israel that revolves obsessively around their demand to destroy the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria and transfer the areas Jew free to the PLO. The Obama administration was so hateful towards these communities that it pushed through UN Security Council resolution 2234 that slanderously called them “illegal” after Donald Trump was elected president.

 

By applying Israeli law to these areas while avoiding a Knesset vote until after the map is corrected, the Netanyahu government will deny Democrats the ability to use Trump’s peace plan against him. It will also demonstrate Trump’s commitment to Israel to his evangelical base. Most importantly, applying Israeli law to the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria will take the issue of their future off the table and ensure that the Trump peace plan will survive into the next government, regardless of who wins next month.

 

Senior presidential advisor Jared Kushner has said that it would be best to wait until after the election to begin applying Israeli sovereignty to areas in Judea and Samaria. Under normal circumstances, he would be right. But given the larger context in which this issue must be judged, it is fairly clear that delaying the move until after the elections will cause great harm to President Trump, and effectively bury his peace plan while elevating the Israeli left and the Democrats.

If I was an Israeli Jewish Voter – NO DEAL!


John R. Houk

© February 3, 2020

I AM NOT amenable for Arabs that pretend to be a Palestinian people to have any sort of sovereign nation. BUT I don’t live in Israel. If Jews are willing be a vote to give up their Biblical heritage in an over generous and probably disastrous move to give a State to Arabs called Palestine, it’s their business.

 

Those Israeli voters MUST remember what happened in Gaza after Jews were forced to leave ultimately giving autonomous rule to Jew-hating Hamas. NAMELY, constant missile barrages and terrorist tunnels to murder Jews.

 

A Palestinian State will be worse than Hamas controlled Gaza, since President Trump’s Deal of the Century intends to AGAIN divide Jerusalem. Though I have not been able to find and read how Trump’s Deal of the Century Divided Jerusalem affects the Western Wall of the Temple Mount where two sacrilegious Muslim Mosques stand, I can’t imagine it bodes well for Jews revering their faith and heritage.

 

The place named the West Bank by conquering Jordanians in 1948, and now more referred to as Judea and Samaria after recapturing in 1967, will be bulk of this Arab state to be called Palestine if successful.

 

I find myself on the rare occasion praying Faux-Palestinian shoot themselves in the foot by nixing this so-called Deal of the Century through their typical Jew-hating terrorism that vainly tries to kill all Jews to erase Israel from the map.

 

I feel comfortable with stating a guarantee that a Deal of the Century Palestinian State would mean the resumption of Islamic inspired militaries from surrounding nations to invade Israel to pronounce Dar al Islam over the Jewish State of Israel with the goal of a 2nd Jewish Holocaust making Hitler’s Final Solution appear as child’s play.

 

I AM A TRUMP SUPPORTER VOTING TRUMP in November 2020, but if I was an Israeli voter, I would wholly reject this Deal of the Century.

 

Here is – to the best of my knowledge – an unauthoritative version of the Deal of the Century but from the U.S. White House under the pdf title, “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People” (181 pages).

 

Thanks to the blog work of Geri Ungurean a very important video of Pastor J.D. Farag sermon on the Deal of the Century at his Church on Super Bowl Sunday 2/2/20. Pastor Farag at about the 6 ½ minute begins with facts about Arabs calling themselves Palestinians. Pastor Farag’s sermon demonstrates the reason the Two-State Solution attributed to Trump but actually formulated by his son-in-law Jared Kushner will NOT BRING PEACE between Israel and a Palestine State dedicated to Islam. Ungurean’s post is entitled, “I have never been more proud of Pastor JD Farag. He spoke truth about the so-called peace plan, and he didn’t care who disagreed with him!  Praise God, Pastor JD!  Keep speaking truth!” Ungurean includes a roughly hour ling video of three Christian Zionist pro-Trump and Pro-Netanyahu who begin with the disbelief Trump would divide Jerusalem yet most of the video is about Bible Prophecy relating to the Antichrist coming to mess up Israel for awhile. The prophetic portion is the reason I suspect Ungurean included the 2nd video. You’ll have to go her blog for the second video. HERE IS THE Farag VIDEO:

Deal of the Century?

 

By John Hinderaker

January 28, 2020

Power Line Blog

 

That is how President Trump bills the Israeli-Arab peace plan that he unveiled today. You can download the entire proposal, titled “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People,” here. I haven’t had time to digest the entire plan, but the Jerusalem Post summarizes the high points:

 

Borders: Trump’s plan features a map of what Israel’s new borders will be, should it enact the plan fully. Israel will retain 20% of the West Bank and will lose a small amount of land in the Negev near the Gaza-Egypt border. The Palestinians will have a pathway to a state in the vast majority of territory in the West Bank, while Israel will maintain control of all borders.

 

This is the first time an American peace plan has included a map. President Trump apparently has delved into the details of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

 

Visiion4Peace Conceptual Map- Israel & Palestinian State

 

Jerusalem: The Palestinians will have a capital in east Jerusalem based on northern and eastern neighborhoods that are outside the Israeli security barrier – Kafr Akab, Abu Dis and half of Shuafat. Otherwise, Trump said Jerusalem will remain undivided as Israel’s capital.

 

If implemented, this would be a big win for Israel. This is important, too:

 

Settlements: Israel will retain the Jordan Valley and all Israeli settlements in the West Bank in the broadest definition possible, meaning not the municipal borders of each settlement but their security perimeters. This also includes 15 isolated settlements, which will be enclaves within an eventual Palestinian state. Within those settlements Israel will not be able to build for the next four years.

 

Security: Israel will be in control of security from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. The IDF will not have to leave the West Bank. No change to Israel’s approach to Judea and Samaria would be needed.

 

Palestinian state: The plan does not include immediate recognition of a Palestinian state; rather, it expects a willingness on Israel’s part to create a pathway toward Palestinian statehood based on specific territory, which is about 70% of Judea and Samaria, including areas A and B and parts of Area C. The state will only come into existence in four years if the Palestinians accept the plan, if the Palestinian Authority stops paying terrorists and inciting terrorism and if Hamas and Islamic Jihad put down their weapons. In addition, the American plan calls on the Palestinians to give up corruption, respect human rights, freedom of religion and a free press, so that they don’t have a failed state. If those conditions are met, the US will recognize a Palestinian state and implement a massive economic plan to assist it.

 

I think the likelihood of Palestinian leadership inducing Hamas and Islamic Jihad to abandon violence, or giving up on its own crusade to massacre Jewish Israelis, is close to zero. Early returns suggest that this evaluation is correct:

 

Palestinians from across the political spectrum have strongly rejected US President Donald Trump’s plan for Mideast peace, which was unveiled by the White House on Tuesday.

 

“We say 1,000 ‘no’s to this deal,” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said.

***

Palestinian officials and political factions vowed to work toward thwarting the plan, also known as the “Deal of the Century,” on the pretext that it aims to “liquidate the Palestinian cause.”

 

Abbas was speaking during an emergency meeting of Palestinian officials in Ramallah on Tuesday evening to discuss ways of responding to the Trump plan. Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad representatives were invited to participate in the meeting.

 

In a televised address, Abbas called the plan a “conspiracy,” adding that his people’s rights “are not for sale.”

 

“I say to Trump and Netanyahu: Jerusalem is not for sale, all our rights are not for sale and are not for bargain. And your deal, the conspiracy, will not pass,” he said.

 

I guess that is a No. If you are a Palestinian politician, the money is on the other side. Notwithstanding the fact that the Trump plan includes, if the Palestinians put down their arms and agree to acknowledge the State of Israel, billions of dollars in aid that dwarf, on a per capita basis, the Marshall Plan. But the welfare of the Palestinian people has never been a priority for radical Arab politicians.

 

So, does President Trump’s peace plan have a chance of succeeding? Probably not, in the short term. But at some point, Israeli and Palestinian Arabs may be willing to acknowledge that terrorism has been a dead end for them. This will require a complete change in leadership, but that likely will happen eventually.

Abu Mazen on Trump’s Deal of the Century


For those of you who might only have a cursory knowledge of Islamic Terrorism aimed at Israel, the Abu Mazen in the title is the same person as Mahmoud Abbas. The “Abbas” name is the one used most often by the American Press.

Ari Bussel has been supportive of President Trump actions toward Israel in the past (e.g. moving U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem: HERE & HERE), but here – if I am understanding correctly – Ari is not pleased with Trump’s Deal of the Century, not pleased with Prime Minister Netanyahu’s cooperation with the Deal AND highlights Mahmoud Abbas speaking threats if any action is taken to enact The Deal of the Century.

 

On a personal level I have not read the Deal so I am not surprised by the Faux-Palestinian vitriol who seek to deny the existence of a Jewish State. BUT from Ari’s tone the Deal must be too conciliatory toward Arabs pretending to be Palestinians. I trust Ari. So I am now going to have to locate some Deal of the Century details for future reference.

Abu Mazen on Trump’s Deal of the Century

 

By Ari Bussel
Sent 1/30/2020 2:53 PM

 

Dear Friends,

 

The Deal of the Century was announced this week by US President Donald J Trump.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jewish donor Sheldon (& Dr. Miriam) Adelson were among those cheering onsite.  The President also met with MK and former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz who currently is the forerunner to lead the country after the upcoming elections on March 2nd, 2020.

 

The responses were quick to arrive, and we can divide them into categories:  Organizations who have to comment about anything and everything (e.g. the Reform Movement or the Zionist Organization of America); organizations who are focused on Israel (e.g. CAMERA or Arab America); and those who derive a direct benefit, some type of personal gain.  Although many in these categories employ top thinkers and analysts, allow us to ignore them all and focus on one and only one reaction.

 

Abu Mazen expressed what the entire Palestinian tribal collection wants to hear and what it believes:

 

“Jerusalem is not for sale, and all our rights are neither for sale nor for compromise.  This scheme will not succeed!”

 

Compare the reaction on the Palestinian side and that on the Jewish side.  The Palestinian position is Simple.  Concise.  Clear.  Unwavering.  Full of Conviction.  And now check the Israeli and Jewish side that has been entrusted with an undivided Jerusalem, the City where God resides among His people.  We are weak.  Ready to compromise.  Debate.  Give up.  Divide.  A sure recipe for destruction and fall; exactly what took place some two thousand years ago when the Second Temple was destroyed.

 

Not only do the Palestinians confuse sick-imagination with reality-transposed, they are not even sure who they are.  For a people that cannot even pronounce its own name (the letter “p”) or realize the root of the word is invaders to a land-not-theirs, they so crave to make their dream of a county void of Jews a reality, that anyone who is not Jewish must therefore be a Palestinian.  Jesus apparently was a Palestinian.  He is still “standing” at the checkpoints designed to prevent terrorists from passing.  Israeli citizens who happen to be Muslim are Palestinians (previously they were 1967 Arabs and before that 1948 Arabs, then 1947 Arabs and now pure “Palestinians”).  So are members of the Israeli Knesset, who spew hatred toward Israel and against the Israel Defense Forces from the podium at the parliament.  Full Israeli citizens call themselves “Palestinians,” but they will not give up their Israeli passports or all the benefits to which they are entitled as Israeli citizens.

 

There is supposedly a talk about some “border,” but the Palestinian have only one border in their mind:  The entire country, from the River to the Sea, is theirs!  No Jews allowed!  Al Quds (Jerusalem) is their eternal capital, has always been; will always be.  It is not up for dividing, sharing or bargaining.  And all the millions of eternal refugees are waiting to go back to their homes throughout the country.  In short:  No Israel.  No Jews.  Viva Palestine!

 

To this theater comes the Most Crazy American President in an announcement:  “I have the Deal of the Century!”  Is he the clown during intermission?  He is definitely not entertaining.  Does he think that the Palestinians can be bought like Putin, China or North Korea?  He simply does not understand with whom he is dealing; who really stands in front of him.  He is a most useful puppet in the hands of his Jewish Handlers.  Look, there is the Adelson couple opening their purse and pulling the strings.  What has the President not done for them already!  All will be reversed as the first order of action as soon as the new President is sworn in and replaces this travesty in announcing to DJT:  “YOU ARE FIRED!”

 

The Deal of the Century is weak because it has exposed what is important for the Jews and their puppets, including sovereignty and control over the West Bank, no Right of Return of the Palestinians, Jerusalem remaining under Israeli control and end of BDS and claims in international bodies such as the International Criminal Court.  Even Gantz (who ran on a platform “Just Not Bibi (Netanyahu)”) is supporting this plan.  All that the Deal has done is to show where Israel really hurts, both what subjects and what effective tools are currently working effectively against her.  In short, the Deal has emboldened the enemies of Israel that their struggle is working.

 

A President under Impeachment.  A Prime Minister who has been Indicted.  A main puppeteer, a filthy-wealthy Jew who controls the scene.  And a Circus like no other.  How good that people of conscience, including so many Jewish Americans and so many leading Israelis stand united against this evil plan!

 

To all lovers and protectors of Israel:  Israel’s enemies do not want peace.  They aspire death and destruction; a place clean of Jews.  They have no plan for the day after, for they only want the death of the Jewish body.  This is what cancer is all about, and any doctor who will prescribe the following course of treatment will likely lose his license:

 

“Listen Cancer, you may not even be able to pronounce your own name and likely you do not even know from where you came, but we propose the following to you:  Restrict yourself to the ovaries, stop dreaming on the liver, the lungs and the brain.  We will then let you thrive in the ovaries.  Grow and expand.  Go from strength to strength.  We love and respect you.  We will feed you and take care of you.  We will continue adoring you.  We realize you want the entire body, and that you have no plan for the day after.  (The day after, you are dead.)  We (the world) really, really like you.  We admire your convictions.  We stand with you regarding your aspirations and efforts.  Give them all up.  stay in the ovaries.”

 

Not only does the idea make no sense whatsoever, why would someone feeling strength, ever-growing strength, restrict oneself from taking, devouring, enjoying and destroying more and more?  The cancer has metastasized to the liver and the stomach and the lungs and the brain.  So why stop?  Because an American President decided to say so?  Even notable Israelis and many American Jews have succumbed to the cancer and have declared “Viva Palestine!  End the Occupation!  Free, free Palestine!  A country of all its people!”

 

Those who love Israel awake!  Not only the timing, but the mere idea of a Deal right now is contrary to basic business practices (which the President understands).  One does not negotiate from an inferior position of weakness, and both Israel and the USA are weak.

 

We must learn from the Palestinians.  They speak clearly.  They are unified.  They know exactly what they want, and this is everything.  And they  have the courage to stand by their convictions.

 

“Jerusalem is not for sale, and all our rights are neither for sale nor for compromise.  This scheme will not succeed!”

 

Always,

Ari Bussel

For those who want to expand, you are invited to continue reading:

 

The Deal of the Century was not a secret.  There was access to it on the White House website in the weeks leading to the announcement.  For very many months, it was mentioned in every opportunity.  The timing of the celebratory announcement is questionable, for the President is trying to ignore the Impeachment proceedings in the US Senate, possibly  to deflect attention, while in Israel nothing can be done permanently binding by a temporary government.  Netanyahu’s government is twice temporary, after he forced the country to go into an election following which neither he nor his opponent was able to form a government.  A second election was called with practically the same result, and now the country faces a third election in less than a year.  Without a proper budget, nothing operates as usual, and with a country under the iron grip of the judiciary and advisors who grab power, even appointments or removal of bureaucrats translate to lengthy battles.

 

The US Administration is aware of what is happening in Israel, so what might be the specific reason for the release at this time?  Possibly a parting gift to Prime Minister Netanyahu before his defeat and removal?  Alas, this is not a reason for policy that is shaping a new Middle East.

 

As much as everyone likes to think Israel is the center of the universe, Israel is a tiny country with nine million people.  It is the home of the Jewish people – all 14 to 15 million of us around the world – and the only country we can call our home.  By any stretch of the imagination, Israel is tiny.  In China, the center of outbreak of the current Corona Virus is much larger than Israel, both in size and in population.  But the world continues to focus only on Israel, as if it is the source of energy for the entire universe.

 

The powers in the Middle East are impressive:  A Turk who wants to become a Sultan over a re-emerging Ottoman Empire.  Iran whose tentacles are pressing the Mediterranean on both sides, from its southern and northern shores.  A KGB Uber-Oligarch who is meddling in Syria and wants to establish his country’s dominance in the region.  A Kingdom that is always on a threat of collapsing.  The persecuted Christians, who are raped, murdered, kidnapped, sold for slavery (sexual and labor) and burned alive in their churches throughout the region and the continent of Africa, and the world stands silent.  And then, there are the Palestinians.

 

The Palestinians invented a nationhood and borrowed the craving of the Jews to return to their homeland.  They are a very special breed.  Their brethren in the Arab world view them as inferior.   They never wanted anything to do with them.  It is a class structure, where the Iranians view themselves as superior to all, and the Arabs view the Palestinians as inferior.  Indeed, who are the Palestinians?  Their forefathers emigrated to Palestine when the Zionists from Europe came and turned a desolate area into a blooming oasis.  They (the Zionists) dried the swamps, defeated the malaria that was carried by mosquitos, created new technologies (such as drip irrigation and water desalination) and made areas previously uninhabitable into thriving communities basking in greenery, a light unto the nations, a source of goodness to the world.

 

Israel became a miracle, and it attracted workers.  Many came from Egypt, and among them Yasir Arafat and Abu Mazen’s family, as well as the families of many of the Palestinian leadership.  The area was called “Palestine,” the Jews and their institutions were often referred to as “Palestinians” and Arab nationalism was alive and thriving.  There were Arabs and Jews, the Arabs did not want the Jews, and the superpowers who inherited and dived the Ottoman Empire kept slicing the area designated for the Jews into an ever diminishing slice of land.

 

After the formation of the modern State of Israel, the nascent country absorbed some 750,000 Jewish refugees expelled from Arab countries.  Those Arabs who fled Israel – under the false promise “you will get to your homes within days, after we defeat and eliminate the Jews” – were never assimilated.  They remained as garbage in the countries to where they fled momentarily.  No one wanted them; no one was interested.  But then something unique happened:  The United Nations has created a special body to treat the newly formed “Palestinians.”  They and their descendants forever, for all eternity, are called “Refugees.”  There is no need to assimilate; there is no need for anyone (their own brethren) to absorb them.  It is very big business, employing tens of thousands of UN employees, and channeling billions of Dollars to corrupt people.  Why rattle such a thriving and successful business?

 

For several decades the Arab nations went along with this ploy, as they realized that Israel cannot be defeated militarily, despite all odds stacked against the nascent Jewish state.  Something bigger is protecting Israel (and it is NOT the United States of America).  1956.  1967.  1973.  Nothing helped.  The Jews survive and thrived.  To the Arabs, right in their corner were the Palestinians, a disposable, no-cost commodity that could be utilized to harm Israel.  Thus, for instance, Gaza remained as it is – an open wound – where Israel left it and Egypt does not want it.

 

The refugee camps in Lebanon are a source of endless liberation fighters willing and able to sacrifice themselves.  Keep them!  And in Jordan, a full majority of the entire Kingdom is made of Palestinians creating an entire Eastern front against Israel.  [The situation in Jordan has changed since Jordan is the only country that absorbed the real Syrian Refugees, and they realize what “refugee-dom” is all about and how the Palestinians are not “refugees” by any stretch of the imagination.]

 

With the advance of Iran and the real threat to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries, with the Arab Spring that turned quickly in Winter and the Muslim Brotherhood stronghold on Egypt, and with the continued slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Muslims by their Muslim brethren in Syria, the Arab World has realized the utter and complete fallacy of the Palestinians and their dream to eradicate Israel, to wipe Israel off the map.

 

The Palestinians squander the money they receive and stash it in secret bank accounts in Switzerland and France.  The Palestinians cry foul all the time, crying and bickering.  They work with Iran.  They send their young ones to explode themselves – and soon the Arabs realized that what is effective against the Jews, is also employed against them!

 

And Israel?  Contrary to what the Palestinians teach their children and the hatred they spew at every opportunity, Israel does good.  Israel extends a helping hand at a time of disaster.  Israel brings new technologies about water and agriculture in the times of peace.  Commerce with Israel is bilateral.  Israel opens field hospitals for Syrian refugees and brings the wounded from Lebanon, Syria and even Gaza to her hospitals.  Israel is the only deterrent against the spread of Iran, and she is not afraid to act – at whatever time and place she sees fit.  Israel can be trusted – by friend and foe alike.  She is always true to her word.

 

Israel wants what every normal human being wants – to live, raise her children, thrive.  She is focused on herself, not on harming others.  She has no aspirations at expanding, colonizing or occupying.  It is not easy for Israel, for where there are two Jews, there are five opinions.  And Israel has always been a country of all generals!  They Arabs see Israel; the Arabs hear the pleas and contact demands by the Palestinians; and when the Arabs do an accounting, or simple arithmetic, they understand they want to be associated with the Israelis, not with the Palestinians.

 

And so there is a titanic shift, which is based on much common sense.  What would we do if faced in the same situation:  on the one hand a group that whines and brings death and mayhem, evil and bickering; on the other a group that is good for you, and good for the entire world and humanity, that does not talk much but acts, and when it acts – there are no boundaries to the love shown.

 

The Palestinians feel neglected, left behind.  They are angrier than ever.  Remember, the Palestinians are a business.  Their main stronghold, the United Nations, that seems to be serving them and ignoring everyone else (e.g. the really-persecuted Christians) is on shaky grounds as well.  The United States, the UN’s main financial sponsor, has woken up and is bringing common sense back to the playground.  And the European Union has finally started limiting the flow of money, as a major part of it goes to reward terrorists and their families for life – for every person murdered or injured.

 

And so comes The Deal of the Century.  The USA (what one commonly refers to as “America”) has a crazy President.  He dares stand up to Putin (the Democrats say he cooperates with him), to China, to North Korea.  And now he decided to tackle the Israeli-Arab Conflict.  Alas, the Conflict seems to have resolved itself – between Israel and the real Arabs.

 

The only thing that is left from the “Conflict” (the objective of the Arabs to “throw the Israelis to the (Mediterranean) Sea”) is Iran’s promise to “Wipe Israel Off the Map” (and this must be taken seriously; with one qualification that the only reason for Iran to do so is that Israel is the only obstacle standing in its way to control the entire region, and Europe should be concerned for Europe’s sake) and the Palestinians who do not even show Israel on their maps.

 

So if there is no Israeli-Arab Conflict, what is the deal to do?  Appease the so-called Palestinians?  Serve the Jewish Puppeteers of the President of the US?

 

Whether the Deal of the Century has been in the works for the past three years or not at all, it matters not.  Also the timing of the announcement which is most suspect is not very important.  Be the reasons what they might be, they are irrelevant.  Both the US President and the Israeli Prime Minister quickly understood it – their folly was exposed, no one treats it seriously, not even those cheering in the background.  The Prime Minister announced, even before leaving DC, “we are going to annex next Sunday,” and the Trump-Team (Administration) replied “not so quickly, let us wait until after the elections.”  So quickly the two main players realized it was an exercise of hot air, that the entire exercise became beneficial only to all those “experts” and organizations that benefit from it (on the pro-Israel or anti-Israel side).

 

A Peace Plan has to be achieved by two sides who want it.  And a lasting peace will continue as long as both sides really want it.  Israel has a peace treaty with Egypt and another with Jordan.  Israel could have had a peace treaty with Syria, had it not been for the Civil War there and Assad’s butchering hundreds of thousand of his own people.

 

Another Peace Plan that should serve as an applicable example is the one between the Allies and the Nazis.  Except, the Middle East is not there yet.  The main lesson is that one side really wanted “Peace” to bring the cessation of its utter and complete decimation, and the other side was both benevolent and smart to help the Germans rebuild.

 

The Palestinians live a very good life.  Visit their homes and see.  Visit their shopping centers.  Watch their tv channels.  The Palestinians need Israel.  They come to work in Israel.  They sell products to Israel.  They depend on Israel as a neighbor and partner.  And they want to eliminate her and have an area free and clean of Jews.

 

Instead of investing in infrastructure and institutions of civil society, they dig death tunnels, manufacture weapons of mass destruction and excel in death and mayhem.  In short, they do everything opposite logic.

 

In addition to glorifying homicide martyrs as deserving 72 virgins, they propagate and expand the fantasy that the Jews will be eliminated, that the Jews do not deserve to live.  They twist history, using elements they like as their own and others to their advantage.  So they tell the Jews to pack their belongings and “go back.”  They remove the archeological findings under the Temple Mount and trash them as rubbish, and then they declare the Temple Mount was really never there, the Jewish “story” of the Bible has not connection to the place.

 

They do excel, however, in a thousand and one Arabian nights – weaving a story like no other.  And the story resonates with people around the world.  Where a story takes hold, no deal or reality program can overcome.  The Deal of the Century has not even lived its millisecond of fame, it was an orchestration that failed, a momentary distraction.   Until Israelis  take hold of the helm, until they start fighting for their own existence and survival, no substitute (as good and well-intentioned as it might be) will succeed.  Now, let us return to real life.
