Report: NIF, EU, UN Drive Ferocious Campaign to Quash Israel’s Nationality Law


I am a bit disturbed and perturbed that Left-Wing Jews are shooting themselves in the foot by working against shoring up the Jewish identity of Israel by propagandizing Israel’s public with typical lies about the new Nationality Law.

 

Apparently Leftists of all nations are supportive of the Multiculturalism that destroys the national identity and culture of all nations. I would not be surprised if Jews in America also supportive of a Leftist agenda to suppress the Jewish national identity in the Land of the Jews.

 

JewishPress.com has the story of how Israel’s Left is destroying their own nation.

Report: NIF, EU, UN Drive Ferocious Campaign to Quash Israel’s Nationality Law

Rabin Square Rally against the Nationality Law, August 4, 2018

 

In the week before the Saturday night rally in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square against Israel’s new Nationality Law, the organizers issued frequent announcements to the media, signed by the “headquarters of the struggle against the Nationality Law.”

 

According to the website Mida, the group behind the “struggle” is Anu (Us in Hebrew), a leftist NGO supported by the New Israel Fund, the European Union, UNESCO, and the Shoken fund, to name a few.

 

Anu is also behind an online funding campaign to raise money for the rally and the continued fight against the new law.

 

To remind you, the Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People, enacted July 19 by a majority of 62 to 55 with 2 abstaining, establishes the constitutionality of the three historic Zionist principles: the free return of the Jews to the land of our fathers; the free settlement of Jews everywhere in Israel; and the miraculously revived Hebrew as the official language of the Jewish State. Calling these principles racist and part of an apartheid policy is tantamount to attacking the very existence of a Jewish State.

 

But the Anu-supported “Struggle Headquarters” describes the new Basic Law (meaning it is constitutional) in a distorted way, with clear post-Zionist attitudes woven between the lines.

 

For one thing, the Struggle Headquarters does not distinguish between Israeli minorities who committed to military service and those who do not, presenting the protest as being shared by “Druze, Jews and Arabs.” This despite the yawning gap between the position of a large number of Israeli Arabs, who identify themselves as “Palestinians” and pray for the destruction of Israel, and the overwhelming majority of the Druze, who are proud of their country and fight for it in the battlefield.

 

The Struggle Headquarters propaganda maliciously misrepresents the law, using a false comparison between two Border Guard officers, one a Jew, the other a Druze, and stating that “the Nationality Law states explicitly: They are not brothers! They are not equal!”

 

The new law does no such thing, of course. It certainly does not violate the civil rights of Druze citizens, nor does it violate the equality between Jewish and Druze citizens.

 

The Struggle Headquarters intentionally lies to the public, suggesting the new law “officially cancels the principle of civil equality” and “justifies inequality in the distribution of national resources,” both utterly baseless claims.

 

They also claim the law “cancels the recognition of Arabic as an official language,” when the Nationality Law, which crowns Hebrew as the Jewish State’s official language, also explicitly uphold the special status given to the Arabic language.

 

Along with the above distortions, the Struggle Headquarters is also infected with post-Zionism: “The government, deliberately, violates the international right of minorities to national self-determination as minority groups,” the campaign declares, but fails to explain what is the basis for this so-called “international right.” That’s because no such right exists.

 

Minority rights, as applying to ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities and indigenous peoples, are an integral part of international human rights law, designed to ensure that a specific group which is in a vulnerable, disadvantaged or marginalized position in society, is able to achieve equality and is protected from persecution. The concerns of international legal conventions on minority rights are not to prevent nation-states such as England, Denmark, France or Israel from remaining so, but to prevent the genocide of minorities in places like the former Yugoslavia or east Africa. In countries with a Western democratic tradition, minority rights are usually protected by affirmative action quotas.

 

And yet, the literature disseminated by the Struggle Headquarters say Israel must provide “national self-determination” to Israeli Arabs, many of whom identify themselves as “Palestinians.” This is a concept that promotes eliminating the uniqueness of the Jewish national identity of the State of Israel.

 

This post-Zionist outlook joins similar statements made by Druze former General Amal Assad, one of the leaders of the struggle against the Nationality Law, who believes the Jews do not have a unique right to the Land of Israel, as he put it recently on his Facebook page: “Where did you get the nerve to determine that the country belongs to the Jews? What is the foundation of the claim of the Jewish right and ownership of the land?”

 

Last week, it was the same Assad who caused the collapse of a meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and the heads of the Druze community, when he declared that Israel is on its way to becoming an “apartheid state.”

 

THE LEADER

 

One of the prominent figures in the “struggle against national law” is Dr. Ricki Tessler, a faculty member at the Hebrew University’s School of Education and chair of the Academic Forum on Civics Education. Tessler is the spearhead in the campaign to eliminate national-Zionist values from the teaching of civil studies, in favor of “universal” values ​​that correspond to the values ​​of a state of all its citizens.

 

In an interview with the Knesset TV channel, Tesler expressed her rage at the fact that the country’s civil studies books teach that “the government can make decisions because it is the majority,” protesting: “Where will all this lead us?”

 

In other words, Tessler is enraged by the most basic principle of democracy: majority rule.

 

ANU AND THE NIF

 

Anu is a federation of lefwing [sic] organizations, including Agenda, heavily sponsored by the New Israel Fund (80% of its budget came from NIF).

 

Agenda’s board included NIF’s Executive Director in Israel, Rachel Liel; MK Daniel Ben-Simon (Zionist Union); and former Israel TV news director and current mayor of the Druze town of Daliat al-Carmel, Rafik Halabi, who is one of the pillars of the protest against the Nationality Law; and the group’s director-general Anat Saragusti, who later ran B’Tselem US.

 

Between 2014 and 2017, Anu received more than $550,000 in grants from the NIF. The NGO also receives grants from the European Union and the UN, the specific amounts are not yet known.

 

Anu’s online guide to anti-government demonstrators across Israel.

 

Anu serves the leftist agenda, dedicating its official website and Facebook page to promoting leftwing demonstrations under the title “The People Are Fighting Corruption.” Anu provides organizational knowledge to expand the circle of participants in the demonstrations, offering an online demonstrations map, directing users to the locations of the demonstrations throughout the country, and providing updates via email on upcoming rallies.

 

To date, Anu has launched an extensive campaign to prevent the expulsion of illegal African infiltrators, spreading blatant lies such as that “the State of Israel expels tens of thousands into mortal danger”; demonstrations against the government’s natural gas outline; rallies against the demolition of illegal construction in Bedouin settlements in the Negev; and support for the Barbur Art Gallery in Jerusalem, which hosted members of extreme leftist, anti-Israel organizations in a venue that is public property belonging to the Jerusalem Municipality.

 

Among the more bizarre campaigns appearing on the organization’s website is “The struggle against brain-control crimes.” Anu claims that “university management retirees, together with subcontractors from intelligence organizations, fire electromagnetic radiation to establish remote brain control, to manage the citizens using microwave radiation.”

About Jewish Press

 

The Jewish Press is the largest independent weekly Jewish newspaper in the United States. The paper, founded by Rabbi Sholom Klass (1916-2000) and Mr. Raphael Schreiber (1885-1980), debuted as a national weekly in January 1960 and quickly won a following for its eclectic mix of Jewish news, political and religious commentary, the largest Jewish classifieds and special features — including puzzles, games and illustrated stories —  for young readers.

 

For over five decades now The Jewish Press has championed Torah values and ideals from a centrist or Modern Orthodox perspective. The paper has been a tireless advocate on behalf of the State of Israel, Soviet Jewry, and agunot (women whose husbands refuse to grant them a religious divorce), and has taken the lead in urging a greater communal openness in addressing domestic violence and other social ills.

 

Known for its editorial feistiness, The Jewish Press was politically incorrect long before the phrase was coined. The paper over the years has been home to colorful and thought-provoking writers like Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis, Dr. Morris Mandel, Louis Rene Beres, Steven Plaut, Marvin Schick, Rabbi Dovid Goldwasser, Phyllis Chesler, Rabbi David Hollander, Paul Eidelberg, the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, as well as former editor Arnold Fine and current senior editor Jason Maoz.

 

In 2011, the JewishPress.com website and related Internet properties were relaunched as an independent, daily online newspaper, with breaking news and in-depth articles on Israel, the Jewish People and the world. The Internet edition is managed by Stephen Leavitt.

The new government’s war on BDS


Is the global Antisemitism snowballing in the Western World’s democratic nations grown so bad that tiny Israel is becoming diplomatically isolated?

The new government’s war on BDS

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

06/04/2015

Jerusalem Post

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government is less than a month old, but it’s already apparent that it is different from its predecessors. And if it continues on its current diplomatic trajectory, it may do something that its six predecessors failed to accomplish. Netanyahu’s new government may improve Israel’s position internationally.

The stakes are high. Over the years, Israel has largely concentrated its efforts on developing the tools to contend with its military challenges. But as we have seen over the past decade and a half, Israel’s capacity to fight and defeat its enemies is not limited principally by the IDF’s war-fighting capabilities.

Israel’s ability to defend itself and its citizens is constrained first and foremost by its shrinking capacity to defend itself diplomatically. Its enemies in the diplomatic arena have met with great success in their use of diplomatic condemnation and intimidation to force Israel to limit its military operations to the point where it is incapable of defeating its enemies outright.

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Participants in the movement propagate and disseminate the libelous claim that Israel’s use of force in self-defense is inherently immoral and illegal. Over the years BDS activists’ assaults on Israel’s right to exist have become ever more shrill and radical. So, too, whereas just a few years ago their operations tended to be concentrated around military confrontations, today they are everyday occurrences. And their demands become greater and more openly anti-Semitic from week to week and day to day.

Consider the events of the past seven days alone.

Late last week Israel fended off a major international effort led by Palestinian Authority Soccer Federation chairman and former terrorist chief Jibril Rajoub to expel it from the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Not only is Rajoub a man with blood on his hands. The Fatah luminary is admired by the Israeli far-Left while also being a favorite of Qatar, the chief state sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

Rajoub is sympathetically inclined toward enabling Hamas in Gaza to expand its presence in Judea and Samaria.

Before the government had a chance to sigh in relief that FIFA was settled, Britain’s National Union of Students voted to join the BDS movement. This means that the anti-Israel demonstrations and assaults that take place several times a week at Britain’s universities will now take place under the NUS banner.

Also Wednesday, the French telecom giant Orange’s CEO Stéphane Richard told reporters in Cairo that he wishes to cut off his contract with Israel’s Partner telecommunications company, one of Israel’s largest cellular telephone services providers.

Richard was apparently coerced into making his statement by the Egyptian BDS movement which has threatened to boycott Orange’s subsidiary in Egypt due to its contract with Partner.

Tuesday it was reported that last month the Dutch government issued a travel advisory to its citizens traveling in Israel. In an act of anti-Jewish inversion now common in the Western discourse about Israel and its enemies, the Dutch government warned that Jews in Judea and Samaria constitute a threat to Dutch travelers because they throw stones “toward Palestinian and foreign vehicles.”

In the US, the Anti-Defamation League reported that this past academic year there was a 38 percent rise in anti-Israel events on college campuses over the previous year. The number of BDS campaigns doubled over the previous academic year.

By ADL’s count, there were 520 anti-Israel events on campuses. BDS campaigns were initiated on 29 campuses.

At the UN, Tuesday “The Palestinian Return Center,” Hamas’s European chapter, was granted official status as a recognized nongovernmental organization by the UN’s Commission on NGOs. Now, thanks to the commission, Hamas terrorists can participate in UN meetings, have full access to UN facilities and wear their new, official UN badges.

Incidentally, the same commission rejected a request by ZAKA to receive the same status. ZAKA is an Israeli NGO that provides first aid and handles the remains of terrorism victims and victims of major disasters in Israel and worldwide.

Also at the UN, Leila Zerrougui, the envoy for children in armed conflicts, is pushing to get the IDF added to the blacklist of groups that harm children.

Boko Haram, Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban are among the current names of the list.

Wednesday Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sent a pointed letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemning Zerrougui’s actions. Cruz threatened, “Congress will have no choice but to reassess the United States’ relationship with the United Nations and consider serious consequences if you choose to take this action.”

In contrast to Cruz’s position, in his interview with Channel 2 broadcast Tuesday, US President Barack Obama indicated that due to the rising tide of anti-Israel sentiment and campaigns, if Israel doesn’t make unreciprocated concessions to the PA then the administration will have no choice but to join the anti-Israel UN bandwagon.

The time has come, then, for Israel to take the wheels off the wagon.

For the past dozen years or so, pro-Israel activists in the US in particular have been fighting an uphill, lonely battle against the organizations promoting the BDS movement. Among their top complaints has been the constant refrain that the Israeli government has undermined their actions by standing silent or denying what was happening or treating Israel’s defenders as the moral equivalents of its adversaries.

To some degree, the reticence of the Foreign Ministry was understandable. The BDS Israel haters often claim that they wage political and economic warfare against Israel and isolate and humiliate Israel supporters in the West to promote peace.

This claim has always been ridiculous. You can’t support peace and boycott Jewish-owned businesses in all or parts of Israel. You can’t support peace and boycott Israeli students and professors and dance troupes.

But so long as the word “peace” has been involved, or the boycotters have pretended that they are only referring to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, the Foreign Ministry has by and large taken them at face value and pretended that their smear operation is nothing to worry about.

To the extent they have tried to deal with the growing hate Israel phenomenon, they have run away from its essence. Instead, our senior diplomats have said that the best way to combat BDS is by rebranding Israel as the start-up, gay, friendly state with great beaches.

And largely as a result of this self-induced paralysis and blindness, pro-Israel activists have been isolated.

Jewish anti-Israel organizations such as J Street, Open Hillel and the New Israel Fund in the US, and European governments and government- funded organizations in Europe have operated largely free from criticism by official Israeli voices unwilling to take sides in the debate about the country’s right to exist and defend itself.

All the while, Israel’s diplomatic standing has gone from weak to incapacitated.

Against this backdrop, statements and actions by the new Netanyahu government are encouraging because, unlike its predecessors, it seems to have stopped playing the fool.

At the outset of this week’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu spoke out angrily and specifically against the BDS movement and warned that Israel must not blame itself for the BDS haters’ assaults against it.

As he put it, “The last thing we need to do is to bow our heads and ask where we went wrong, where we erred. We have done nothing wrong and we have not erred. We are not a perfect country; we do not pretend to be such, but they are setting standards for us that are both twisted and higher than those for any other country, any other democracy.”

Wednesday Netanyahu assailed the British student union’s decision to join the BDS movement.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked excoriated the BDS movement at the Knesset, stating openly that it is the new Jew hatred.

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely has translated this new position into action. Among other things, this week she instructed Israel’s ambassador to Switzerland to formally demand that the Swiss government and the Zurich municipality rescind their financial support for the planned Breaking the Silence conference this month in Zurich. The purpose of the conference, like the purpose of the foreign-funded group more generally, is to demonize and libel the IDF.

So it appears that the government has decided to finally go on offense. But if this is true, then much more can and must be done immediately.

Take the Dutch travel advisory for instance. Israel wasted no time in condemning Holland’s move. But the Dutch statement was just the tip of the iceberg.

Holland spends millions every year to directly and indirectly finance organizations whose sole purpose is to demonize Israel and Israelis. The Dutch government paid a lot of money to invent lies about Israel and its Jews that then formed the basis of its malicious, bigoted travel advisory.

The Israeli embassy at the Hague as well as the Foreign Ministry must demand not only a retraction of the travel warning. They must demand an immediate cessation of this subversive, adversarial campaign.

So, too, while the British government responded with embarrassment to the BDS vote of the NUS, the fact is that the British government holds responsibility for the strength and radicalism of the BDS movement in Britain. Like Holland, the UK spends millions every year financing NGOs whose purpose is to undermine Israeli sovereignty, demonize the IDF, attack Israel’s right to exist and fund Palestinian terrorists.

Every year, the British government funds dozens of Israeli and Palestinian-registered NGOs whose purpose is to make Israel into an international pariah unable to wage wars of self-defense without risking war crimes tribunals, economic boycotts and international humiliation.

Rather than sufficing with expressions of thanks to the Cameron government for distancing itself from the student union’s boycott of Israel, the government must demand the cessation of direct and indirect British governmental funding of these groups and their campaigns.

The BDS movement is a proxy war. It is being waged against Israel not only by deep-pocketed Arab governments which fund the NGOs that carry the battle to the streets. It is also being waged by hypocritical leftist donors in the US and by supposedly friendly European governments.

The government has taken the first steps in beating back this onslaught. But the hour is late and the stakes are high. The BDS movement is a strategic threat because as it gets stronger, Israel’s ability to wage war on the military battlefield becomes further constrained and the threats to Israel’s economy and social fabric grow. BDS must be defeated piece by piece in an unrelenting offensive that attacks its sources and puts it out of business. It won’t be easy. It won’t be genteel.

But if the government doesn’t submit to the diplomatic urge to be polite, it stands a chance of making matters better, for a change.

Too Little, Too Late


The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement that operates to condemn Israel for not allowing Arabs who call themselves the mythical Palestinians (who never EXISTED as a national entity let alone existing as an independent nation), is essentially an Antisemitic Movement given a pass because of the propaganda that mythological Palestinians were booted out of their homes by Jews who originated primarily from Europe. The historical facts on Jews living in the Land of Israel are HERE. The Biblical facts that determines that the Holy Land is the Land of the Jews are HERE.

And as Ari Bussel will share a lot of that validity added Antisemitism comes from Left Wing Jews both inside and outside of Israel. This Jewish self-loathing would be like Black Liberation Theology Movement (See Also HERE & HERE) African Americans demanding a Caucasian free independent nation within America with a demand that a more economic astute USA supply the infrastructure while BLT nationalists plant the overthrow and slaughter of non-Black Americans to possess an expanded nation.

Both situations are IDIOTIC!

Too Little, Too Late

The Response to BDS

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 6/3/2015 5:36 PM

Like flowers after the first rain, there are signs Israel is waking up in the face of the strongest resurgence of anti-Semitism in the past eighty years.

In the United States, Jews have been living under the illusion that “it will not happen here.” In fact, if a classroom of high school students were asked if the Holocaust could reoccur today, the answer would be bewilderment. Back in 1981, a movie The Wave was based on a true story, a teacher who set out to show his students how the non-imaginable can become a frightening reality.

We feel secure. We also did not expect attacks on US soil. September 11, 2001, showed us that was a false belief.

While American Jews do not expect a repetition of the Holocaust, today we are on the verge of a volcano about to erupt. It has become acceptable to blame Israel for the world’s faults and hold her to a different standard than any other nation.

It is now the norm to remain quiet, seated and focused when the most abhorrent lies about Israel are uttered in public. Teachers believe Israel is the New Nazis. Students at universities are being brainwashed insane falsehoods like Israelis murder children at will, harvest organs from males and do not even bother to rape Gazan women since they are not viewed as human. (Apparently, modern-day Israelis are much worse than the Nazis, for the Nazis had special accommodations for female sex servitude.)

All is done in broad daylight, with respected professors and politicians, business people and members of the clergy present, often themselves propagating the lies.

And society remains silent.

Apparently, our education fails us. If we remember “First They Came for the …” by Pastor Martin Niemoller and witness the very same thing and standby silently, we have learned nothing, and as students of history know, those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it.

One may rise to object: “It is quite confusing,” they would say. “Israelis and Jews themselves are at the forefront of the criticism– why blame us?” And that person would be correct.

In fact the same question is raised by both sides; with Israel’s detractors using this line as justification that their quest is just, while Israel’s defenders ask themselves repeatedly, in utter frustration – why should we fight when some of the worse detractors are Israelis or Jews?

Switzerland used this line to reject Israel’s official protest against an exhibition by a NGO “Breaking the Silence.” It replied via official channels that it is an Israeli organization, legitimately recognized in Israel, bringing Israelis to Switzerland to present what they have to present. We will not stop them!

Good for the Swiss! The Canadians would have acted differently, but they are the sole exception. Why is Israel demanding from others what she permits herself?

When Israel decides to fight, she has the tools, resources, knowhow and drive. At the moment, none exists. The new anti-Semitism erupting like a volcano has been ignored for so long, and so many Israelis and Jews have participated in the upcoming avalanche, any attempt to act now is doomed to be “too little, too late.”

In fact, today, those at the helm face fierce internal opposition. We have grown so accustomed to attacking Israel, why stop? Branded as “right wing extremists,” the Government is being confronted with the accusation it is attempting to stifle free speech and the very democracy of which Israel is so proud.

It is interesting that those who were aiding and abating Israel’s detractors here in the USA are starting to feel the pinch. They are at the forefront of “fighting BDS” (the movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, a front that legitimizes any false verbal attack against Israel as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth).

Israel and the other eight or so million Jews who live around the world outside Israel have not yet felt the pervasive, vicious and vindictive force about to be unleashed. When it does, Israel will have no other choice but to absorb the Jews fleeing to her shores and begin fighting back.

In Israel we are taught that victory cannot come from being on the defensive. Apparently, we forgot, or did not properly learn, that vital lesson as well.

Jew Hatred on Campus


Dry Bones Palestinian Quiz

 

It is incredible in this post-WWII, post-Hitler and post Holocaust era of the 21st century that antisemitism would emerge as common place on American university campuses. BUT that is exactly what is happening RIGHT NOW with the government funded (in the case of State funded universities at least) Jew-hating and Islamic terrorist supporting organizations have become quite prevalent at university campuses in idiotic sympathy for a people that were manufactured as Palestinians in 1964 prior to the 1967/Six Days War (See Also HERE, HERE and HERE) in which Israel regained land stolen by the original Arab invasion in 1948.

Jew Hatred on Campus

Awareness Week

 

From: Discover the Networks

Sent: March 11, 2015 3:09 PM

 

Jew hatred is an ugly presence on America’s campuses, from UCLA to Columbia and everywhere in between. The anti-Semites masquerade as anti-Israel activists, but their message is clear: Jews must be cleansed from the Middle East.

This campus “conversation” must be changed. We should not be discussing whether genocidal lies – that Jews occupy land that doesn’t belong to them, that terrorists are “freedom fighters,” and that Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East is “an apartheid state” – are true or false. We need to be discussing whether a hate group like Students for Justice in Palestine should have official university recognition and whether its hate should be funded by student fees. We need to be discussing Students for Justice in Palestine’s support for terrorists and for the destruction of the Jewish state.

Because the left so far has controlled the narrative and made Israel the target, we have been losing the political war on campus. Prior to the launch of our campaign against “Jew Hatred on Campus,” no organization was attempting to defend Israel and the Jews by putting the onus on their enemies. Consequently, Jewish students have been the targets of intimidation and harassment by Students for Justice in Palestine, and there has been an uninterrupted flow of anti-Jewish propaganda on campus spread by SJP. SJP is a front for the terrorist group Hamas – whose slogans it mouths and whose agenda – the destruction of the Jewish state – it supports.

We are fighting back.

Our viral poster campaign condemning SJP as “Jew Haters” and for supporting terrorists appeared on more than 50 campuses around the country simultaneously. SJP responded by condemning the posters as Islamophobic and lobbied campus officials and local police departments to crack down on anyone who drew the connection between their campus efforts and the genocidal campaign against the Jews led by Iran, Hamas and other Islamist parties.
 
SJP’s reaction was predictable.  Sadly, so were the reactions of many campus Jewish groups
, who have been indoctrinated in the mandates of political correctness, and who instantly sprang to the defense of SJP’s outrages and criticized us. SJP is the campus spearhead of the genocidal campaign against the Jews in Israel, yet campus Jewish groups refuse to identify them as such. They echoed SJP’s characterizations of the posters as Islamophobic. (In fact, the posters didn’t mention Islam. They were directed against SJP, which claims to be a secular group, and which includes some misguided leftist Jews in its membership.) These Jewish groups should know better, given that they are SJP’s targets. But apparently they care more about appeasing anti-Semites in the name of multiculturalism than fighting them.

As one of our student activists, Ross Beroff, pointed out in an op-ed that ran in his university’s newspaper, “SJP tries to hide their naked anti-Semitism by partnering with groups with misnomers such as Jewish Voice for Peace. Throughout history, whenever a new group arises to try and destroy the Jews, there have been members of the tribe assisting them. For months, SJP had its Facebook profile picture in support of convicted terrorist Rasmea Odeh. Other chapters have held fundraisers for her.”

SJP holds fundraisers and rallies for a convicted anti-Jewish terrorist, but instead of joining usin the fight against this hate group, our would-be allies are busy putting out statements distancing themselves from our actions. Their cowardice merely emboldens the Jew-haters.

But they will not succeed in silencing us. Our goal is to change the campus conversation entirely. Before, they talked about the SJP narrative, which claims falsely that Israel is an apartheid state, occupies Arab land, and victimizes Palestinians. These are lies of Hitlerian dimensions. Shame on these Jewish organizations who spring to the defense of their would-be grave-diggers.

By naming the SJP genocide supporters for what they are, we have begun to turn the tide. For the first time, The New York Times has covered anti-Semitic activity on campus. At UCLA, SJP holds emergency meetings attempting to stop us from telling truths about them. Across the country, media have taken notice of our campaign, and they are beginning to ask questions about why Jews have become targets on campus. Why does a hate group like Students for Justice in Palestine receive university funding and support? No group with anti-African American or anti-Hispanic agendas would be tolerated by university administrations. Yet SJP’s anti-Semitic agendas receive university funding and university support. This injustice must end. A university campus is no place for a terrorist support group and no place for an organization whose sole purpose is to slander Jews and destroy their homeland.

“Anti-Zionism is the potent Jew hatred of our day. What we learned from the Paris massacres is that Jew hatred is one of the great and rising tides of our day.  We’ve seen it before, including during the 1930s and the 1940s.  We have some large portion of the world today that is in a frenzy to kill Jews.”

 

-Bret Stephens, Wall Street Journal

America in Retreat

 

Today we are witnessing a resurgence of global Jew hatred not seen since the 1930s when Hitler was laying plans for a “Final Solution” to the problem presented by Jews through their physical extermination. In the Middle East, Hitler-admiring regimes like Iran, and Hitler-admiring parties like Hezbollah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are openly planning “to finish the job that Hitler started.” And in America, on campuses across the country, student groups supporting or associated with these anti-Semitic parties, including Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association, regularly hold events supporting the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists, and calling for the destruction of the Jewish state.

 

These university-approved organizations engage in rhetoric and activities that clearly fall under the U.S. government’s official definition of “anti-Semitism.” They deny the Jewish people – and only the Jewish people – their right to self-determination; they demand that Israel live up to standards not expected of any other nation; they deploy classic anti-Semitic imagery and libels; they demonize Israel – the READ THE REST

I am fairly certain the U.S. government uses taxpayer funding to undermine foreign governments either subversively or to influence elections if that foreign government has policies that are detrimental to American National Interests or National Security. This has occurred especially in the post-WWII era when the free world has expected America to police the world from nefarious motives typically with Cold War tactics associated with Soviet and Communist China international Marxist revolution agendas. In the post-Cold War era the Pax American paradigm is resented except when a nation or some state-persecuted nationality faces a genocidal situation and that may even be a bit iffy when political correctness forces our policies to conform to a despotic ruler’s sovereignty.

 

The problem I am having is our Socialist Transformation Deceiver-in-Chief has been promoting Left Wing NGOs – many associated with Leftist Jewish organizations – to fund Israeli opposition campaigning against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu due for mid-March Israeli elections.

 

Amazingly Obama’s State Department could actually be sending American taxpayer funds to one of these NGOs directly to actively lobby against Prime Minister Netanyahu’s election. Since Israel has a special alliance reliance with the USA I cannot believe that a majority of American voters would support Obama or his Administration lobbying against the head of government in Israel. Senator Ted Cruz has queried the State Department about funding such an anti-Netanyahu campaign for an official confirmation or denial.

 

The Left Wing organization the State Department could be funneling money toward is One Voice (SA HERE). One Voice is funding Victory 15 (V15) which is actually using Obama 2012 campaign staffers (270 Strategies) in Israel in their anti-Netanyahu efforts. Follow the Leftist Money Trail.

Meddling at the Pond

 

By Ari Bussel

Jeffery Goldberg at the Atlantic describes the relationship between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu as one of “mutual loathing.”  I will grant the feeling on the President’s part, although Netanyahu feels the heat, but does not reciprocate.  Netanyahu has a country to run, and issues for him are not personal.

 

Has the President sent a contingency of election manipulating experts to Israel to defeat Netanyahu’s Likud party in the upcoming Israeli elections?  Clearly the White House would deny such an absurd notion.  The President will not even see Netanyahu during his visit to DC at the beginning of March due (supposedly) to the proximity to the Israeli elections, let alone meddle in the sovereign election of a foreign country.

 

The President would not dispatch a delegation directly to Tel Aviv to manipulate the Israeli elections.  All the President needed to do is to listen to the idea, smile broadly and nod his head.  There are enough mega-philanthropists, mainly American Jews and a few Israeli expats living in New York, who would carry out the plan, put up the finances and pull the strings behind the scenes.

 

The President, undoubtedly, would love nothing better than to see Netanyahu defeated.  For him, it is personal, although he has much greater things to handle, including more fundraising, international mega-excursions with a full court, golf outings and vacations with the First Family.

 

It is not so much Obama as the driving force, it is his stance of “do what you want, it sounds good.”  Leave it to the J Street and like- minded Jews in America who feel they need to force Israel to act as they want.  Time and again they turned to the Administration to apply pressure on Israel, for her to give in, extend more gestures, withdraw and to submit.  Thus, there is really nothing new under the sun.  George Soros, J Street, Americans for Peace Now and others have consistently used the same tactics to topple Netanyahu’s government, but Netanyahu is stubborn.  He has his country to defend; contrary to what good American Jews may think.

 

The Likud party is convening a press conference to disclose sources of funds to members of the so-called “Zionist Camp” (a misleading name self-assigned, somewhat similar to J Street initially calling itself “pro-Israel, pro-peace,” later to drop the “pro-Israel” portion.  There is another similarity many would remember:  J Street hid the fact the Soros was its initial mega donor).  The Likud party also enlisted high-powered lawyers to ask the Elections Committee overseeing the upcoming March 17th election to rule against the flow of foreign indirect funding to the election cycle.

 

This is a very important lesson to which one must pay very careful attention.  For a long period of time, there has been noise, thus public attention in Israel, about the flow of foreign money (some from foreign governments) into local NGOs that are acting to undermine Israel’s position in world public opinion.

 

There has been an attempt to pass legislation to prohibit such funding, but it has not been successful.  The main reason is that in Israel, like any true democracy, one does not target only the portion of the flow of funds one does not like.  The rule of law applies equally to all.  And the “all” in this equation does not want to stop the flow of funds; until the action hits them directly.

 

Each member of the Knesset, each political party and movement relies heavily on money flowing in from the outside (the comfort zone is psychological more than an imperative).  Members of the Knesset regularly travel overseas on fundraising missions, rather than focus on local individuals and companies, within which there is richness beyond imagination (although less of a giving culture and an inclination is rarely forthcoming).  (As I flew to Israel, a former Israeli ambassador and a former major general were busy fundraising in my hometown of Beverly Hills.)

 

An Israeli colonel (reserves) has travelled to the USA repeatedly and very successfully raised millions of dollars to expose the flow of funds from the USA to Israel.  Numerous individuals received tax exemptions on donations to that cause legally.  So exposed he did what is otherwise generally publicly available (by the mere status of American non-profits; a requirement for the 501(c)(3) status) and came public with it in Israel. 

 

This vigilante only erred with one unacceptable omission:  he hid his own sources of funds.  Go expose others, while protecting exactly what you are attempting to expose.  This does not sit well with me, nor should it with anyone.

 

As for the elections, something similar is happening.  For many years, there are election experts, primarily in New York, who provide advice to the Likud and to Mr. Netanyahu for “big bucks.”  They fly back and forth, most are religious and those whom I know are ultra-Zionists.  (This is a new form of Zionism, one of living the comforts and the high-life of New York, while espousing to know better and run the Israeli political scene.)

 

Suddenly there is a problem.  There is an acute need to expose “the other side.”  Has the Likud forgotten that it, too, uses high-powered “experts” from New York?  Admittedly, V15 may not be “Modern-Orthodox” and their flavor of “Zionism” is closer to J Street’s than to ZOA’s, but they are playing the exact same game. 

It turns out they are very good at it, and none other than Ha’Aretz has been actively promoting their every move.  There is nothing to hide.  All is in the sunlight.  And they are very effective – the media both in Israel and the USA is hovering around like bees so the public is fed constantly the idea that “Netanyahu has to go.  Even the USA thinks so.”  Imagine, they do not even need to spend money on this message.  In short, priceless.

 

The more the White House denies, as it should and as is expected, the more the message is drilled into the collective Israeli and international psyche.

 

The Likud wants to change the rules of the game.  Suddenly the same rules by which it played all along are no longer to its liking.  Similar to the foreign funding flowing to Israel, the Likud in this case will cry “foul!” but apply their discontent only to the other side, not themselves.

 

To effect change, one must hurt personally.  But “change” applies to all equally, so one must be very careful with for what one wishes.

 

The upcoming election in Israel is indeed a most fascinating one.  The Prime Minister is going to America to act as a tool in the hands of the Republican-controlled Congress, and a team of experts has arrived in Israel to tilt the election results here.

Allow me a small reminder that holds true both in Israel and in the USA.  The voter, contrary to all assumptions, is not stupid.  So try as you might, spend the money, attempt to manipulate.  At the end of the day, it is the voter who decides.

 

My recommendation for anyone who cares:  BE SURE TO VOTE!

The End of Secular Jews in America


American-Leftist Antisemitism

Around September 10 there was a Christian interdenominational summit that included Eastern Rite Churches in Washington DC. The purpose of the summit was to show a rare moment of Christian unity among Christians that do not necessarily agree on how to worship our Lord Jesus Christ as Savior/Messiah. The show of unity demonstration occurred because of the ISIS butchery of Christians in Iraq and Syria in areas controlled by these Islamic Supremacist butchers of humanity.

 

Senator Ted Cruz was a speaker of note on September 10. Senator Cruz began his speech as expected condemning the barbarity of the Christians at the hands of ISIS. Then Cruz included the nation of Israel as a place vilified in the Middle East and that the Jewish is an ally with the USA as a proponent for civil rights. The Senator did not get far when the visiting Eastern Rite Christians that made the trip to Washington DC began booing Senator Cruz’s inclusiveness of Israel. Senator Cruz correctly expressed his disappointment with the antisemitism being demonstrated by his audience and then left the podium in disgust. I used this incident as a starting point to write a post pertaining to the development of antisemitism among Christians in the Muslim dominated Middle Eastern nations which is also the cradle of the beginning of Christianity with this title: “Antisemitism of Middle Eastern Christians”.

 

Norma Zager also uses the Ted Cruz incident to discuss two phenomena emerging in the USA. Namely, the growing antisemitism in America particularly among the Mainstream Media (MSM0 and the self-loathing among Left Wing-minded Jews that too often concurs with the MSM and hence to an antisemitic culture.

The End of Secular Jews in America

 

By Norma Zager

The incredible and overt rise of anti-Semitism in the world is troubling, yet not as troubling as the astounding increase in the proponents of Jewish hatred in America.

 

Watching Senator Ted Cruz walk off the stage at an event the other night after Christians booed Israel and the Jewish people filled me with sadness.

 

Of course I felt gratitude to Senator Cruz for showing integrity and loyalty, but how sad that it is so acceptable to Americans to behave so visibly anti-Semitic.

 

I realize that anti-Semitism has never left the building, but there is a big difference now that has created a perfect storm against Jewish people. Three factors have been the game changers, and together they will quickly bring on the end of the Jewish people in America:  the media, Jew-haters and the elimination of tradition.

 

First would have to be the media. For a group that has always been accused of taking their orders from Jews, it is shocking how anti-Semitic it has become. Israel has become some evil stepbrother the United States must endure, but would rather not.

 

Sadly, I see no end to this trend. If the media cannot defend the Jewish people against savage monsters that are determined to destroy them, there is little that will ever again bring them to our side.

 

Along with the widespread media bias the Jewish people suffer, there are also the blamers. People who actually believe the world would be better if Israel and the Jewish people just dissolved and were never heard from again. Of course when the Jews disappear they would like them to leave behind all the advancements in medicine, technology and areas too numerous to mention. The haters don’t mind benefitting from Jewish brains, despite the fact they would like to beat our brains out of our heads.

 

Yet, with all those who wish us harm, the true end of the Jewish people will come about at our own hand. It will be the Jews that ultimately destroy themselves, and history will record they eventually assimilated and self-hated themselves out of existence.

 

If that sounds harsh, the reality is much more so.  For anyone that takes the time to notice, the things that kept us a people are being driven to extinction by a new generation lacking the feeling and the Tom for what it means to be Jewish.

 

My late husband sold New York Times outside the bagel factory on Sunday mornings. Sunday mornings were such an important time for Jewish families. Fathers awoke, got dressed and went to pick up fresh smoked fish, lox, herring and a chub for brunch.

 

This wasn’t done solely in the city where I grew up; it was a ritual from New York to California to Montreal. It was the special family breakfast, even the pets joined in. Our dog Lamb Chop and cat Pywacket would sit patiently next to the table and await their bagel with cream cheese and lox.

 

Jewish people lived with certain traditions, bagels Sunday morning, Chinese food Sunday dinner and a fattening and greasy brisket on Friday nights.

 

Healthy, maybe not so much, but my father lived to 94 and my mother at 91 is healthier than some forty year olds.

 

When you were Jewish, you lived a certain lifestyle, and you knew what was expected of you.

 

No one really thought much about it, you just felt a certain inner knowledge that confirmed, “I am a Jew and this is my life.”  You went to college, you married someone appropriate and grandchildren were not an option.

 

Then came a new generation, one that saw cream cheese as the enemy and a brisket or a Sabbath dinner was a heart attack on a plate. Challah was traded for whole wheat, rugalach were exchanged for power bars and smoothies replaced that sickeningly sweet purple concoction called wine you got to drink on Shabbat and holidays.

 

Suddenly it wasn’t cool to be Jewish anymore. Young people questioned the existence of God, although I thought that was settled in the sixties after the whole “God is Dead” debate.

 

But being Jewish is not solely about God. It is about an identity, one that enrobes you as a warm and comfortable furry afghan on a winter night. It is about enjoying a corned beef sandwich on mushy rye bread with crispy double-baked crust. About knowing your mother will go into the kitchen two weeks before Rosh Hashanah or Passover and not be seen again until the dinner is served.

 

Being Jewish is about knowing when the first crisp air of autumn arrived, so did the High Holidays. And laughing as your brother tried on last year’s suit and the sleeves were two inches too short.

 

It’s about searching the house for the eight Chanukah gifts and chanting your Bar Mitzvah portion for your grandfather. Attending Bar Mitzvah or Confirmation services and parties for all your friends, new outfits and dancing in your socks all night.

 

It’s about seeing everyone shopping in the grocery store to get ready for the invasion of family, and cooking while you chatted on the phone with friends about what you were cooking and how they made theirs.

 

I am in no way saying these things are not the same for Christians during Christmas or Easter, I am only saying the feeling of being Jewish has been eclipsed by a new generation that believes corned beef should be outlawed and delis are for 90-year-old men with pacemakers.

 

Yes, there is truly a disappearance of the Jewish lifestyle in America. So, if the lifestyle is gone, we are no more able to survive than deer when their entire forest has burned. The cocoon of Judaism has been torn and has not been replaced.

 

The younger Jews of today practice their form of Judaism, and this works for them, but once a religion has been watered down, that trickle will become thinner and thinner with each succeeding generation.

 

Years from now a child may ask when he is told he is Jewish, “what does it mean to be a Jew?” Sadly, his parent may not have a clue what to answer.

Satan’s Ball


Sun-shiny Arab Spring- Kill Jews toon

 

Satan could not be prouder.” –Ari Bussel

 

Palestinians speak a lie as if it is a truth.” –John R. Houk

 

Ari Bussel writes about a Panel Discussion event that was kind of billed as a fair and balanced presentation of Israel and the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. If you are not aware, you will be astonished to learn there are Left-slanted Jews that are full-in for the creation of a sovereign Palestinian State. You probably won’t be surprised that Leftists are 100% behind the Left-slanted Jews. I personally am astonished at the level of ignorance at some Mainline Denominational Churches that support the creation of a Palestinian State to the point of promoting boycotting, divesting financial investments and sanctioning the State of Israel because the nation’s government is not moving fast enough to establish a Palestinian State. AND it should be shocking to ALL Americans that lies are constantly told as truths by Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. And finally it is completely ludicrous when certain American leaders refuse to admit that anti-Israel sentiment is tantamount to Antisemitism.

Satan’s Ball

 

By Ari Bussel

“I have every right to be angry!” so says one of the “Irvine 11” – the Muslims who in February, 2010, disrupted then Israeli ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, at a talk at the University of California, Irvine, and were subsequently arrested.

 

Almost five years later he sits as part of a panel discussing the role of USA in Israel/Palestine.  He is by far the most militant, and certainly the most frightening.

 

From right to left, there are two Jews on the panel, a Christian and two Muslims.

The moderator is from a local progressive/liberal radio station, KPFK.  My colleague, with whom I write this series, once applied to this station.  She quickly withdrew her application when she understood she would be expected to restrict her stories to anti-Israel.

 

Humming in the back of my mind throughout the evening is our own radio program on Christian radio, “Conversations Eye to Eye.”  Perhaps we should do the same outreach as this progressive station, “broadcasting from remote locations with live audience participation.”  Talking to its own chorus of misguided believers and haters, the station has created the impression to their listeners that they are representing a majority opinion, not an outer fringe of lunatics.

 

Tonight, there are three sane people among almost one hundred Israel haters.  And there is one variety of hatred:  the strongest.

 

Mistake not, the very presence of Jews does not absolve or allow the perpetrators their doing.  They pay homage to an appearance of civility and claim to be critical of Israel’s policies but not against the Jewish people.  This said they then go on a constant attack that is tantamount to the expression of anti-Semitism in all its venom.

 

This panel was scheduled for the very last evening of the Jewish year by an organization purporting to be a “Jewish Voice for Peace.”  In truth, it is worse than some of Israel’s sworn enemies.  Being “Jewish” is solely utilized to attack Israel with supposed credibility and impunity, and often quite successfully so.

 

Do not even try to find a grain of positivity toward Israel.  Her major sin is her very existence. But “we are Jewish, we hate Israel and will do everything to bring her down” is dressed in a gown of “peace” and ornamented with numerous sparkling words:  equality, human rights, respect for international law, self-determination.  I am sure I saw “Justice” somewhere, but it eludes me for now.

 

Yet even such marvelous jewels cannot hide the evil underneath.  Alas, Satan and his minions compose those in attendance, and the dress is done, indeed, for one’s own benefit and appeasement of the soul.  Let the Ball begin!

 

None of the major local Jewish organizations heeded the call to participate.  Interesting, since it is exactly these organizations that normally would not miss any opportunity at interfaith dialogue and some publicity.

 

I glance at each of the panelists from right to left:

 

First is the Lion of Judea.  I see the thoughtful, believing and honorable Jew.  He made me proud and thankful.  He came prepared, for he only knows the truth and has nothing to hide.  But he was unprepared for what was to take place, a drop of pure water in a bucket full of tar.

 

Next is the Jew who tries to appease, weak, confused and thus respected by none.  To the Jews he represents the extreme left, while to our enemies he is not to be trusted.

 

In the middle, a Christian, quick to retort and extremely well spoken in a most dangerous and sneaky way.  Indeed, a “national leader and speaker for faith-based justice advocacy,” there is no doubt she does very well in the art of debate.  But whereas the Christians I know are “People of the Book,” who put virtue on a pedestal, she, like the “Jewish” Voice for Peace uses religion as a means; once utilized can be tossed away.  She talks about action to support one’s faith, but when the action is to bring down Israel, I have neither respect nor tolerance for her.  Nor would Jesus in His time or His faith today.

 

A Muslim (or a Muslim-sympathizer) who is self-centered and so full of hatred he might explode.  He is on a book tour, and was this week at the Levantine Cultural Center.  Like “Jewish Voice for Peace,” the “Cultural Center” has a single agenda, and Israel cannot be toppled soon enough.  The author, whose book is in the back for sale, works for “US Campaign to End the Occupation.”

 

And last among the five panelists is the national campus coordinator of “American Muslims for Palestine,” our “I have every right to be angry-and-do-something-about-it” recruiter.  He is unabashed and unafraid.  “Europe has fallen and the US is next,” he declares.  He is angry, and the anger must be appeased.  Like his fellow-panelist from the Christian faith has said, faith without action is dead, and his action is the most frightening of all.

 

Satan could not be prouder.  There is a very specific agenda, and all roads lead to its fulfillment.  Varying degrees of blindness, but his followers are able and ready.  He stands and rubs his hands with joy, looking at the dream team in front, immensely excited, “oh, what a night!”

Truth tries to find a way in, but the walls are as deep as they are high, wide and impenetrable.  The moderator has read many of the audience’s questions, written on 3×5 cards.  He specifically skipped the following for Angry Taher Herzallah:  “Have you joined, or will you join, the Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL or IS)?”

 

ISIS, ISIL, or IS.  Anyone familiar with their operations and modus operandi would know that what was permitted on this stage was the perfect recruiting for IS.  It was staged exactly like the beheadings.  Every element carefully calculated and crafted for maximum effect.

 

The Head Recruiter for tonight’s gathering is neither ashamed nor careless.  He is well grounded and aware nothing can happen to him.  His actions are fully calculated, and he constantly pushes the boundaries, to see how much we would tolerate.

 

He looks around knowing he has the upper hand, for Americans are weak and afraid to take action.  They fall in their own vomit while he is exercising his most elementary right of free speech.  He fights for his “brothers and sisters” and his true belief.  No harm can come to him.

A fine line separates free speech from hate speech and he is aware.  But he also knows we Americans are too politically correct, and who, among an audience of 100 believers, would stand to protest what is being said?

 

For him, the only “JUSTICE” is the elimination of Israel, and all roads are permissible to achieve that end.  Similarly, to achieve a global Islamic Caliphate, all methods are acceptable, including but not limited to public beheadings for international consumption, systematic murders of dozens, hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands (of their own faith) and rape and enslavement of women.

 

Are we naïve or stupid?  How do we allow such public gatherings?  While we have started to take action against IS in Syria and elsewhere, we allow the spread of the very same ideology and methodology right here at home, and the only thing missing is a public announcement:  “There is a sign-up sheet in the back.” Would we have allowed Nazis to march in Washington while we battled Hitler?

 

As Satan stands and watches, he envisions posters materializing all around, with slogans our current president likes so much to use so often: “Islam is a Peaceful Religion.”  “Worry not from Jihad, it is a misunderstood word.”  “ISIL is not Islamic, nor does it represent the true tenants of Islam.”  “There is no ‘Terrorism’ or ‘Terrorists,’ only ‘Extremism’ and ‘Extremists.’”

 

The participants are excited, watching their every desire fulfilled.  Finally, someone who understands their plight, misery, misgivings and call for justice.  JUSTICE!  Supported by these miserable Jews and by some Christians.  Worry not:  They will be the first to go when we achieve our goals.  [That is exactly what happened to early supporters during the rise of Communism.

 

Satan’s Ball, Continued:

 

I Am Israel

 

By Ari Bussel

 

I sat mesmerized.  The event was fantastic beyond even my own imagination.  I recognized a few people, and they recognized me.  I was not there in a press capacity, but actually came because I have been following the actions against my people for many years.  But midway through the evening, one of the organizers whispered in my ear:  “It is good my father is not here.  He reads Hebrew, you know” (referencing my weekly column in Hebrew that has never stood silent in the face of Israel hatred).

 

BDS

Just a week earlier, I sat at a presentation by a local Israeli philanthropist about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction Israel movement (“BDS”).  It was an “intellectual salon,” held by a local non-profit that I support.  A theoretical study, much like looking at slides of archeological findings rather than venturing into the field, participating in digs and learning first hand the craft and science.

 

Neither the philanthropist nor any of those who heard his presentation was among the audience for the discussion of “Peace in Israel/Palestine.”  A missed opportunity, like so many others.

 

Quite a pity, because if anyone wants to learn about BDS first hand, or preempt what takes place at major churches in the USA or in Corporate America, one should come to the lion’s den and witness the work on the ground, be exposed to the elements, learn to identify the currents and understand the motivation behind the action plan.  How else would one be expected to attempt to control the situation as it dynamically develops into a most successful frenzy against Israel and the Jewish people?

Faith without action is dead, but here there is so much action driven by misguided believers, that the success refuels the faith and the end result seems closer than ever.

 

“Bring BOYCOTT! To your community or campus” says one of the handouts.  “The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) created the exhibition to educate audiences about economic activism and to inspire people to act on their principles.”  And we are offered an exhibition “available for presentation in school, community and gallery settings without charge.”

 

We are called to learn about major US BDS campaigns at endtheoccupation.org/bds, bdsmovment.net, and pacbi.org.  Like IS, they understand the strength of disseminating information.  Moreover, they are not limited by a short time horizon.  They know that success does not happen overnight.  They will lose once, twice, thrice, maybe even four, five or six times.  But then the tide will turn and they will start winning.  In the meantime, the poison continues to drip.  Drip, drop, drip, drop, until a critical mass is achieved and a torrent finds its way through.

 

How and why? Because by then, they will have changed the hearts and minds of the general population.  Lies told often enough become “truth,” to the point reasonable (and reasonably-informed) people become confused.  It seems logical that Israel is the Goliath.  Israel with her military might.  Israel that engages in ethnic cleansing and genocide.

 

Alas, the Jewish experts on “BDS” were not present.  This is truly a pity, for “expertise” is learned by experience, not solely by assigning someone to create a presentation from the Internet.

 

None of the organized Israeli or Jewish community was there either.  We must not dismiss what was taking place as an extreme outer fringe of lunatics.  While this may be exactly the case, they are most effective in what they do, and we fail, exactly because we refuse to study what they do; until it is too late. One virus can kill millions.

 

Tales of the Middle East

 

Our IS-style, militant Muslim speaker states he recognizes Israel’s existence, but not her “Right” to exist.  This he fights with all his might, and he is quite effective in garnering supporters to the cause.

 

He tells us of going to what-today-is-known as Beer Sheva (the capital of the Negev, Israel’s southern part).  He asked to see the house where his father once lived, and to which he still holds keys, but the woman who opened the door spat and slammed the door in his face.

 

I wonder how can it be that Israel has allowed a person like him, a clear and present danger to her very existence, entrance.  Israel, after all, does engage in all unspeakable and disallowed manners prohibited in the USA (like “Profiling”).  Then I remember, stories may not be true to the facts, any connection to reality is purely coincidental and the story of people coming to see their “properties” I know first hand.

My uncle’s wife, who inherited with her twin sister their parents’ house in Israel’s artists’ village Ein Hod, receives many visitors who come to see and buy artwork.  One such group asked her permission to pick up some fruit from a pomegranate tree planted, so they said, by their parents.  They, too, so they claimed, have keys to the house.

 

My uncle’s wife is not a woman with whom to meddle.  Her deceased parents planted the tree when she was a kid, she said and escorted the uninvited guests out, without permitting them to enjoy the fruits.

 

I also recalled another story, one told by someone affiliated with AFSC.  Reportedly, the “sister,” “mother,” or otherwise the storyteller herself was detained at an Israeli checkpoint for so many hours that she lost her baby (apparently she was in advanced stages of pregnancy and the wait was bad for her).

 

Such a story is so far from the truth (as Israel’s enemies routinely are permitted inside Israel for medical treatment, and Israeli doctors – both Jewish and non-Jewish – treat them as they would any human being, with the utmost care, professionalism and concern) that I would normally dismiss it.

In Judaism, bringing a new life to the world is one of the most important happenings, for people are all created in the image of the Almighty, and the sanctity of life is greater than anything else.

 

Thus, when a woman fails to reach a hospital in time, it does happen that she gives birth on the side of the road, with the person helping the delivery then appearing on the nightly news, alongside the mother and newborn.  However, something fantastically flawed is happening routinely at “Checkpoints.”  The Arab women seem to always be detained on their way to Israeli hospitals … and without fail to lose their babies.

 

But again, why let facts stand in the way of fiction, especially when the later serves a greater purpose? For some reason people are so quick to believe a negative.

 

There are so many dead newly born infants, due to the mothers being detained or refused passage at “Checkpoints” (most of which were dismantled long ago) that it has reached the proportions of a plague.  Except this specific plague—alongside several others—are only in the minds and on the lips of Israel’s haters.

 

We Demand, You Submit

 

Welcome to the world of AFSC, JVP, MSU, CAIR, MPAC and like-organizations.

 

Our side is not present.  Mainstream Jewish organizations refuse to participate in this charade.  And “Charade” is exactly what it is:  “an absurd pretense intended to create a pleasant or respectable appearance.”

 

There was nothing respectable or pleasant during the panel discussion, but the most illuminating point was the preface by the moderator, requesting the audience to respect the speakers and not interrupt, then proceeding without losing a breath to describe Taher Herzallah as one of those who heckled Ambassador Oren.

 

Heckled was the word used, not mine.  Heckled:  interrupt (a public speaker) with derisive or aggressive comments or abuse.

 

Permissible to them but prohibited to others.  It is OK to interrupt any Israeli or Jewish speaker, permissible and necessary.  Demand the “right of free speech” but deny it to anyone else.

 

Absurdity dances at Satan’s Ball.

 

Any pretense of civility and respect soon departed the hallway.  At first, the Jewish speaker was treated with the title “Mr.” The “Mr.” was quickly dropped, the Jew was belittled (“how low would they—the Jews—stoop”) and eventually he was ignored altogether.

 

Likewise, the Muslims use the very same recipe time and again.

 

When one is unable to prevail on the facts, one would attack the other side, and if one is unable to eliminate the other side (America has not fallen yet, and one cannot simply beat up, behead or shoot those with whom he disagrees or those he does not like), then the appropriate course of action is to ignore, as if they do not exist.  (Their day will come, have faith!)

 

Our Response

 

What does one do in face of such hatred?  Does one engage?  Participate?  Boycott?  Ignore?  There are various options, and generally we have chosen to stay away, close our eyes and hope that the storm will not gather strength but disappear.

 

Some major Jewish organizations prefer “to work quietly behind the scenes.”  That, history teaches us, works as much as appeasement or Chamberlain’s “Peace in Our Lifetime!”

 

Thus joined a new word to our vocabulary (“delegitimization”) alongside “dehumanization” and rose a global movement of BDS, likely the most effective grassroots movement of the 21st Century.

 

The Jewish panelist (not the apologist) used everything in his arsenal:  tact, respect, history, facts, reason, logic and commonsense.  He even employed love and his own childhood.  He did not get angry (even if inside he likely was close to exploding).  He answered each point and expanded with statistics and explanation for those who actually cared to know.

 

Attacked

Nothing helped.  There is a “One State (Final) Solution,” and that state will not be a Jewish State.  In fact, it should be free of any Jews, for they are colonialists who stole a land not theirs.  They (the Jews) have no right to exist in this land, to defile it.

 

There was more:  Peace in Israel/Palestine means that Israel must cease to exist.  She was created in sin, and her poisonous fruits supported by phosphorus bombs and armament by the USA.

 

And a chorus line heard over and over again:  Israel is engaged in ethnic cleansing and colonialism, and must be stopped.

 

And a reminder, to those sensitive of heart or ear:  We all crave JUSTICE, and nothing in the world is more urgent and more needed than to bring JUSTICE to the Palestinians whose country was stolen, who were forced out of their homes and who are subjected to continued ethnic cleansing and barbaric atrocities.

 

“Free Palestine!  From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free!”

 

I was so entrenched in the proceedings, that I neglected to pay attention to the following logic:  Israel claims it needs to protect its security, but there are really no longer any threats to Israel.  With Egypt and Jordan she has peace lasting decades, Syria is embroiled with internal problems, as is Iraq.  Lebanon is not a threat to Israel.  It is all propaganda the claim that Israel’s security needs are pressing.

 

More misinformation is that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.  Lebanon is too, with a free press, and other pillars of what may be defined as a “democracy.”  So we are told.

 

The best was reserved for last:  Israel cares very much for gays.  Jewish gays, that is, because she exposes Arab gays, or threatens to expose them unless they cooperate as a snitch with her Security Services.

 

The world transposed.  Not an iota of self-or inner-responsibility.  There is nothing wrong with Arab Muslim society hanging young gay men.  [Apparently there is also nothing wrong with Arafat and others sleeping with young males and fulfilling their desires with minors, of both sexes.]  Israel must be at fault.  Somehow, she is always fully responsible.  Much like a battered woman, the beating husband is never at fault.

 

One by one, any argument is toppled and counter-arguments are erected.  Israel is at fault at everything, and buzzwords are repeated so often, that even I start enjoying the familiarity of repetition.  Israel is Apartheid.  Israel is modern-day Nazism.  Israel the Colonialist, her army Goliath.  Ethnic Cleansing.  So many dead.  Children detained, raped, murdered, all by Israel.

 

“Free, Free Palestine.  From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free (of Jews)!”

[Clapping.]

 

Speak against Evil

 

It is the last evening (and last event) for the year.  Tomorrow night the Jewish people all around the world will celebrate their New Year.  They will once again pray “for next year in Jerusalem.”  They will hope for the Messiah to arrive quickly, in these very days, with him peace will to be ushered in and no more war.

 

I leave the event, not sure if anyone might dare attack me physically.  After all, I represent everything they hate, for I am Israel.

 

I look forward my New Year, knowing that very difficult and dangerous days are ahead.

 

KPFK, Jewish Voice for Peace and United Methodists’ Holy Land Task Force have invited IS into a church near you.  Tonight it was at the Culver-Palms United Methodist Church in Culver City.  Several years ago it was at LAUSD.  Soon it will be at a location near you.

 

One day we will wake up and realize that Israel’s fight is our fight.  That Hamas, Fatah, Hizbollah and IS are one and the same.  And most importantly, if we do not stand up and do battle, our fates will be one, and probably already determined.

 

Good people need to speak.  We must take action to protect all that is dear to us:  God.  Country.  Family.  Values.

 

And the time to start is now.

Don’t Sympathize with Antony Weiner’s Wife Too Much


Abedin family Radical Islamic Tree

There’s a Conspiracy there Some Where

The Clintons are an untrustworthy Leftist family that already has had the father/husband figure attain to the Office of President in the USA. The Clintons have a Teflon history of an unsubstantiated but Conspiracy Theory suspected list of having associates and those who may have known too much that might implicate the Clintons in some nefarious deaths.

As I write this it is 2013. Unless President Barack Hussein Obama pulls off America’s first leadership coup there will be no incumbent running for President in 2016.  Just as in 2008 Hillary Clinton is seemingly emerging as the Dem Party favorite to run for President of the United Sates. Writer Danny Jeffrey suspects that even Conservative women will vote for Hillary to get the first woman elected as President. This is one time I pray that this is an inaccurate prediction. Danny’s prediction is sound though. After all I believe Independents swayed the 2008 election to get the first Black person elected as President. Obama had less qualifications to be President than Sarah Palin and she was a Vice-President Running Mate to the Republican candidate.

 

As 2016 approaches Hillary Clinton has the credentials to be President all be it a Leftist President. Hillary was an active First Lady for Slick Willie, a U.S. Senator and a Secretary of State. That is actually a résumé that candidates on either side of the political spectrum would love to possess.

 

Obama has shown the Leftist path has been a disastrous one for the USA. Unless voters and Congress receive a spine by the 2014 election cycle to impeach and convict Obama, America will be stuck with another three years of disastrous Obama Change.

 

Then the first Tuesday in November 2016 arrives and the Dems actually have a cunning credentialed but Leftist female candidate to entice voters with a female gender and a strong-willed personality. I know many Conservatives will disagree with me, but I would hope for Sarah Palin to be the strong-willed Conservative personality to confront the potential Dem candidate of Hillary Clinton.

 

Huma, Weiner & Diana West bylineNow here comes my Conspiracy Theory relating to Hillary Clinton. I speculate that the Anthony Weiner comedic Mayoral run in New York City is a Clinton ploy to garner more sympathy especially from female voters. You see, Weiner’s wife is Huma Abedin a long time upper-level staffer of Hillary Clinton. Huma Abedin comes from a Radical Muslim family AND she has been involved with Radical Muslim journalism prior to working for Hillary. That Radical Muslim connection is the Muslim Brotherhood which is the Radical Muslim power behind many Muslim-American organizations that lie about their moderation because their essence is Radical Islam.

 

Now the weird thing about Weiner is his religious background:

 

Video: IS ANTHONY WEINER (BORN) JEWISH?

 

In Jewish law Jewishness is passed down through the mother and so in the eyes of Jews, Hitler and Muslims (unless Weiner converts to Islam) Anthony Weiner is Jewish.

 

So how or maybe why did Weiner marry Radical Muslim Huma Abedin? Here is some speculative reasoning (denounced by the Left) on Weiner converting to Islam:

 

Video: Did Anthony Weiner Convert to Islam?

 

Related to the video above is some information from SpecialGuest.com focusing on ex-Muslim I.Q. al-Rassooli’s speculation on a possible Muslim conversion by Weiner.

 

There is another speculation that makes more sense to me and it has to do with the practice of deception-misdirection to further the agenda of Islam:

 

Saleha Abedin, Huma’s mother, a leader of the Muslim Sisterhood (Secret Muslim Brotherhood affiliate), did not have a problem with the marriage due to a tactic that Huma is employing. It’s called Muruna and it permits the lifting of all prohibitions in Islam if the objective is to further the cause of Islam itself.

 

Huma Mahmood Abedin Weiner is a practicing Muslim who grew up in Saudi Arabia, and that her mother is a Pakistani living in Jeddah. Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, is a leader in the Brotherhood’s secret women’s division — known as the Muslim Sisterhood or International Women’s Organization

 

 

All signs point to Huma using a technique championed by Qaradawi himself. It’s called Muruna and it allows Muslims to go to extreme lengths to deceive and convince non-Muslims they pose no threat. One such act permitted by Muruna would be for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man if it furthered the cause of Islam.

 

Perhaps the biggest red flag of all is why Huma – a practicing Muslim – wasn’t disowned by her family for marrying a Jew in the first place.

 

When it was learned that Saleha was a member of this extremely nefarious group, Walid was able to uncover mountains of evidence from news sources – in Arabic – that implicated Huma’s mother as being part of a plot reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Today, much of these connections have vanished. Short of identifying Saleha as the Dean of Dar el Hekma, her tracks have been all but covered. (READ ENTIRETYWalid Shoebat tells us why Huma Abedin, daughter of a Muslim Brotherhood member, would marry Anthony Weiner, a Jew; Bare Naked Islam; 7/4/12)

 

This is the logical explanation of how devout Islamist Huma Abedin married Jewish Anthony Weiner. It probably helped the Muslim approval of the Weiner-Abedin marriage using this concept of Muruna that Weiner is not a practicing Jew but rather one of the deceived Leftist Jews of America that are so secular that they are willing to throw Israel under the bus with the land for peace misconception.

 

Norma Zager on Left Wing American Jews:

 

Recently I had the unfortunate experience of meeting with a group of liberal Jews who believe Israel is some kind of evil occupying government and the poor Palestinian people (actually a figment of the Arab public relations propaganda machine) deserve to have Israel’s land.

 

 

Of course every Jewish person should be dedicated to ensuring it remains a viable Jewish State for so many reasons I would not have enough space to list them. However, when I hear the anger and rhetoric espoused by the liberals I realize what harm the American Jews are doing through this significant divide.

 

 

Giving land for peace has done nothing more than creating new demands for more land with far less peace. …

 

 

J Street and Peace Now have become a powerful voice and are firm in their resolve and anger toward Israel and their determination to ensure the Palestinians a state.

 

 

Each time the Jewish people argue amongst themselves, and each time a Jewish group maligns Israel, the extremists gain more strength. … (READ ENTIRETY [SlantRight.com archive site has a bandwidth limit. When the limit is exceeded one has to wait until the next cycle to read the archives] – Butting Out of Israel’s Business; By Norma Zager; SlantRight.com; 1/7/11)

 

Leftist American-Jews overwhelmingly vote for the Dem Party. They are so blinded by Leftist ideology they do not realize they are voting for a block within the Dems that is supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and even has an infiltrator in Huma Abedin that is dedicated to the genocide of Jews in Israel.

 

Ryan Mauro writing at The Clarion Project does not go as far as I do to suggest there is a Conspiracy Theory behind Weiner’s NYC Mayoral run, Huma Abedin and the Clinton cabal; however he provides enough information that I believe one could draw my conclusions. Mauro even points out that Al Jazeera – the Islamist mouth piece of al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood – is a donor to the Jewish Anthony Weiner. If indeed Hillary runs for President she will build on Obama’s anti-Israel course to the point that Israel may have to look elsewhere for a different ally to survive. Oh wait, global Antisemitism is again pervasive as in pre-WWII days. There is NO other powerful ally to protect the Jewish heritage to their own LAND.

Extremism Found in Journal During Huma Abedin’s Tenure

 

By Ryan Mauro

August 12, 2013

The Clarion Project

 

If Huma Abedin is an anti-Islamist Muslim, then she must explain why she was the assistant editor of a radical Islamist journal.

 

Islam expert Dr. Andrew Bostom, author of The Legacy of Jihad and Sharia, has discovered alarming extremism in an Islamist journal bearing the name of Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and wife of New York City mayoral candidate, former Rep. Anthony Weiner.

 

The Clarion Project helped bring attention to the Islamist ties of Abedin in July 2012, specifically her family’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and her position as an assistant editor of the Islamist journal from 1996 to 2008. More recently, we’ve covered the donations from an Al-Jazeera lobbyist to the mayoral campaign of her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner.

 

The publication in question is the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. Originally known as the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs Journal from 1979 when it began to 1995. The Institute was founded by Abedin’s late father and two Islamist colleagues that led the Muslim World League and World Assembly of Muslim Youth, two powerful engines of Wahhabism.

 

Abedin was the assistant editor of the journal for at least a dozen years, from 1996 (the year she began working as an intern at the White House) to 2008. She worked alongside several family members on the publication, including her mother, brother and sister.

 

Her mother, Saleha, has an especially strong Islamist resume, though the overlaps in the Islamist infrastructure can make it confusing. In short, Abedin’s mother is a member of the female counterpart of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Muslim World League. She leads a group called the International Islamic Committee for Women and Child, a subsidiary of a Muslim Brotherhood-led group that is banned in Israel for its links to Hamas.

 

In 1999, the Abedin family journal and Saleha Abedin’s group published a book in Arabic titled “Women in Islam.” This was three years after Huma Abedin joined the journal.

 

The book teaches that man-made law is inherently oppressive towards women, while Sharia law is liberating. According to the text, Muslim women have an obligation to contribute to jihad; apostates are to be put to death; freedom of speech should be conformed to the boundaries set by Sharia and wives must have sex with their husbands on command.

 

The Center for Security Policy has published a 28-page analysis of the book. Page three of the Center for Security Policy analysis states that the organization led by Huma Abedin’s mother “advocates for the repeal of Mubarak-era prohibitions on female genital mutilation, child marriage and marital rape, on the grounds that such prohibitions run counter to Islamic law, which allows for their practice.”

 

Dr. Andrew Bostom found an issue of the family journal from 2000 that states on page 125 that non-Muslims should give up resisting Sharia governance and join Muslims in fighting secularism. It even states that this resistance to Sharia is nearly an act of treason.

 

“In the name of peaceful co-existence and religious harmony, non-Muslims should stop opposing the application of shari’ah by and for the Muslims … Moreover, the Ahl al-Kitab [Christians and Jews] should eschew all acts bordering on treasonable felony but cooperate with Muslims and, as scripturalists, should not support secularism.”

 

And what is the consequence of treason? Look at an issue from 2011 after Huma Abedin left. It explicitly states that treason qualifies as a crime with a specific sharia-proscribed punishment. Left unsaid is that this punishment is death. The other offenses in this category are adultery, defamation of character, alcoholism, theft, apostasy and oppression.

 

This post-Huma issue explicitly states that the criminal justice system of sharia is to be implemented because it prevents chaos and vigilantism. “The Shariah penal code is best. People in societies where the Shariah is not operative have lost total confidence in the penal code of the existing laws, and hence they may resort to what one may call ‘jungle justice,’” it states.

 

The Abedin family journal reiterated that those that fight against the Islamist agenda deserve death in an issue in 2004, Huma’s eighth year at the publication. According to Bostom, page 167 states a summary of Abul Ala Maududi’s position as follows:

 

“Waging war with the Creator and His Apostle is serious for it amounts to a clear rebellion against the Islamic State where the principles of equity, justice and respect for all are established. So anyone who disturbs or attempts to disturb that system of life is an outlaw who deserves capital punishment. Abul-A’la Maududi explains that it does not make any difference whether that mischief is created by criminals or murderers who cause disorder in the settled and peaceful society, or by armed forces who attempt to overthrow an Islamic State and establish some corrupt un-Islamic system instead.”

 

Maududi is the founder of the Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami. The Abedin family journal teaches that this radical thinker is a foremost authority and his words are to be followed today.

 

If Huma Abedin is an anti-Islamist Muslim, then she must explain how she reconciled her involvement with an Islamist journal. More importantly, the U.S. government must explain whether any of this was taken into account when granting her a top-secret security clearance.

Obama uses Taxpayers to Fund Israeli Leftists


BHO snake charming MB Serpent

I am certain you have heard President Barack Hussein Obama refute his critics that claim Obama is anti-Israel, right?

 

I was one of the Jewish leaders in that meeting. I remember precisely what happened; it was not as represented in this video.

 

The truth is that President Obama spent an hour with 16 Jewish leaders from a wide spectrum of the American Jewish community. We dialogued with the president about ensuring the security of Israel, plans for advancing peace in the Middle East and strategies for ending Iran’s growing nuclear capacity.

 

The president was clear, unequivocal and passionate. The president articulated that he and his administration are resolutely committed to the security and safety of Israel, to the survival of Israel as the Jewish homeland, and to the pursuit of sustainable peace in the Middle East, a peace that secures Israel.

 

I, along with many other Jewish leaders, left that meeting confident about President Obama’s commitment to Israel and promising vision for moving towards peace in the region. I left a proud American and a secure Jew. (President Obama is Israel’s ally; Nancy Ratzan; Miami Herald; 10/15/12)

 

Now, I feel an obligation – not pressure but obligation — to make sure that we’re in close consultation with the Israelis on these issues because it affects them deeply,” Obama said. “They’re one of our closest allies in the region. And we’ve got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel’s existence.” (Obama: Israel ‘One of Our Closest Allies’ in the Middle East; Fred Lucas; cnsnews.com; 9/24/12)

 

Israel is a true friend, it is our greatest ally in the region and if Israel is attacked, America will stand with Israel. I’ve made that clear throughout my presidency.” (DEBATE QUOTE: Obama — “If Israel Is Attacked, America Will Stand With Israel;” Fox News Insider; 10/22/13 9:59 PM ET)

 

Barack Obama makes no bones about it; he alleges that he and the Obama Administration are committed to our ally Israel in the Middle East.

 

Just like any other good Leftist and Muslim Apologists, Obama tells American voters one thing and takes action that indicates an aversion to Israel. Caroline Glick exposes that the Obama Administration is utilizing U.S. taxpayer money to support Leftist organizations in Israel that have the typical Leftist policies that will lead to the destruction of Israel. It is unimaginable but there are a huge contingent of Jewish Leftist that actually believe that the establishment of a Jew-hating sovereign Palestinian State will bring peace between Israel and the Arab refugees that call themselves Palestinians. Read Glick’s article to discover the reality of President BHO’s efforts that will destroy Israel.

US government funding radical Israeli NGOs’ information operations

 

By Caroline Glick

February 15, 2013, 2:17 AM

CarolineGlick.com

 

Earlier this month NGO Monitor released its report on foreign government funding of radical political Israeli NGOs which work to undermine Israel’s international standing and subvert Israeli society. Along with the usual European suspects who give millions of shekels (or Euros or pounds) to Israeli groups like this, it works out that the US government is also funding extremely radical organizations, courtesy of American taxpayers. Notably, the three groups that reported receiving funding from the US are all in the business of waging political warfare campaigns directed at the Israeli public.

 

According to the report, in accordance with the NGO Transparency Law which requires NGOs to report on donations received from foreign governments, three Israeli NGOs received funding from the US.

 

Keshev, a radical leftist “media watchdog” group run by some of Israel’s most outspoken, and radical journalists and writers received NIS 492,452 in direct aid from the US government. To understand how subversive Keshev is, it suffices to note that they criticized the Israeli media for rushing to judgment about Fatah’s unity deal with Hamas. That is, the group the US supports believes we should not criticize Fatah for joining forces with a genocidal jihadist movement committed to the obliteration of Israel that is in cahoots with the Iranians.

 

Through Catholic Relief Services, the US also gave NIS 220,304 to the anti-Israel pressure group B’Tselem. The money was used to fund B’Tselem’s video project. B’tselem’s video project involves the distribution of video cameras to Palestinians to film snuff films that portray Israelis as aggressive bullies who seek to harm the Palestinians for no reason.

 

Numerous examples have already been reported of how those film clips have falsely portrayed events.

 

Finally, the US government donated NIS 15,474 through the Foundation for Middle East Peace to the far left internet outlet Social TV. To a certain degree, Social TV can be — and has been — portrayed as the anti-Zionist answer to Latma, the Hebrew-language media criticism site that I run. But Latma is wholly funded by private contributors and foundations.

 

It would have never occurred to me to ask a foreign government to fund the project. It never would have occurred to me to ask a foreign government to get into the media watchdog game in Israel. But then, from reading the report it is clear that the aim of the US government is not, in fact to help Israeli media outlets do a better job reporting on events. Rather, the report indicates that the US government has decided to use radical Israeli NGOs to wage political warfare in Israel. The aim of this campaign is to convince the public that Israel is to blame for the absence of peace with our neighbors.

 

It is worth noting that through US Embassy cables published by Wikileaks we learned from B’Tselem’s Executive Director Jessica Montell that B’Tselem is almost entirely dependent on foreign governmental assistance. She said that 95 percent of B’tselem’s budget is paid for by foreign governments. Montell told her interlocutor at the Embassy that B’Tselem wished to engender an international climate of hostility towards Israel that would make Israeli leaders fear the international response to IDF operations against Palestinian terror campaign so much that they would fear taking action. The cable was written after Operation Cast Lead. B’Tselem was one of the Israeli NGOs that told the Goldstone Commission Israel had committed war crimes in Gaza.

 

According to the leaked cable:

 

She [Montell] wanted the highest level decision-makers held accountable for the decisions they made on how to prosecute the conflict, including, Military Advocate Gneral (MAG) [BG Avi] Mandelblit…Her aim she said, was to make Israel weigh world opinion and consider whether it could “afford another operation like this.”

 

The Israeli media itself is already controlled in large part by the far Left. Channel 2 news and the station’s flagship satire program “Eretz Nehederet” played a huge role in shaping public perceptions in the last elections. Both worked overtime trying to demonize Naftali Bennett and the Jewish Home Party. This they did after they worked overtime demonizing the winners of Likud’s party primaries as right wing extremists. Muli Segev, Eretz Nehederet’s editor in chief bragged in an interview in Haaretz that his show was directly responsible for the party’s loss of several Knesset seats.

 

The media’s overwhelming far left bias has been on shocking display this week with their wall-to-wall coverage of the story of the prison suicide of suspected traitor Benjamin Zygier. This man was apparently a double agent, a turncoat. He was imprisoned under a false name, as agreed to by him, his attorneys and his family. He killed himself. His body was sent to his family in Australia for burial. End of story.

 

Who cares about him? He was a traitor.

 

The entire story was brought to light because three radical post-Zionist and anti-Zionist members of Knesset abused their parliamentary immunity to announce on live television what the military censor had, for reasons of national security placed a gag order on. That is, by covering this story — and for the past two days, Channel 2, which has a monopoly share of the prime time news ratings — has devoted half of its broadcast time to the story — the media is dancing to the tune dictated by the most radical leftist forces in Israeli politics. It is a travesty.

 

But apparently, the State Department thinks this anti-Israel activism posing as the local media is insufficiently pro-Arab. And so it is funding these even more radical Israeli pressure groups.

MY NAME IS TOM TRENTO AND…I DON’T WANT TO "SLAUGHTER JEWS."


Tom Trento - Dir. TUW

Liberal Jews in America that lean on the Democratic Party and Obama’s agenda to create a Jew-hating state called Palestine are literally setting Israel up for a Jewish genocide that will exceed the Nazi Holocaust of WWII.

 

One example of those Liberal Jewish Democrats is Mark Alan Siegel Chairman of the Dem Party of Palm Beach, FL. Siegel is so virulently Land for peace that will destroy Israel that he is publically putting out there that Christian Zionists (Siegel calls them fundamentalists) want Jews to be slaughtered in Israel so the return of the Christian Messiah will return.

 

That is the ludicrous cheap propaganda that Jewish Democrats are dumping on American Jews to get them to vote for President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Here is how I learned about this fool from The United West and Tom Trento.
