Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai

The mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, has blamed Israel’s occupation of the ‘Palestinian territories’ for an attack on a cafe in his city that left four Israelis dead.

Should the mayor be sent to a psychologist’s couch or to court on charges of incitement and treason?

One might expect that the “New Middle East” serum concocted by the high priest of national self delusion, Shimon Peres had long expired its shelf life. Experimental potions based on dangerous cliches such as “land for peace,” “sacrifices for peace ( a euphemism for ‘terror victims’)”, moderate peace partner, “two state solution,” ” Peace now,” “one makes peace with one’s enemies” have run their course and done their damage

The Tel Aviv mayor seems to be among the dwindling number of Israelis who have not yet woken up from their tranquilized stupor and still cling to the “Oslo addiction.” Most Israelis are indeed waking up after being administrated the ultimate antidote – reality- like the latest terror attack.

The mayor’s comments were not greeted with the same glassy eye acceptance as they would have in the post Oslo period of mass hypnotism. He and his electorate in Tel Aviv must know that their hopes for leadership in this country are gone. Their hopeful vision of Israel looks like San Francisco on the Mediterranean. That would probably include safe haven for illegals who have committed crimes. Mr. Mayor is proud of his city’s title as the international gay capital of the world. They want a genuine Jewish state.What can be more Jewish then that?

It is a package. In Sodom there were judges and laws and “progressive” ideology too. How coincidental that some of Sodom ‘s values and those of Mr. Huldai sound so similar.

The Torah does not agree with the idea that Jews are “occupying any part of the Promised Land.
The Torah would never lend a sympathetic ear and tongue to the killers of Jews.
The Torah also would not support raising the flag of what it refers to as an abomination,” as a defining moral and social value of the “Jewish state”.

I could not help but ponder the stark contrast last week of the annual Jerusalem Day parade.

I was there, in the midst of tens of thousands of Israeli teens waving the nations flag with joy and pride.
At the Western wall the entire tightly packed plaza rang out in unison, “Shema Yisroel.” “The Lord is God!”
If you have only one day of the year to be in Jerusalem, do come on Jerusalem day. You will know at that moment that there is indeed a healthy future for this country.

There will be more Arab attacks on Jews, in Tel Aviv and other “occupied” parts of our country. There will be more “sacrifices for peace.”
There will be more incorrigible Oslo addicts, blabbering about the occupation – to, mercifully, a decreasing audience.

The process is slow and painful but if you look at a graph spanning our modern history, it reads like a long term stock performance graph: Lots of zig and zags, with some dramatic jumps and steep drops – but a great long term investment. In fact it was the most undervalued stock when it hit the big board but now it’s appropriately recognized as the miracle country that defies all conventional wisdom.

It seems to me that our current “nationalist” leadership does not get it yet either.

Always looking over their shoulders in fear of their image”abroad” and in the opinion pages of the “important” circles, they fear any accusation of being “intransigent.”
This of course means “keeping the door open” to a “peace settlement.” blah, blah, blah…
We know what that code word means and where it has gotten us until today. Our current leaders can explain the dangers wonderfully, but can not jump off the out of control train. The seats are too comfortable.

The average Israeli has disdain for the Ron Huldais of Israel. His language is open, honest and–revolting to most Israelis.

I am convinced that the future leadership of Israel will come from the beautiful youth I was swept up by on Jerusalem Day.

And it will come – soon.

  1. Perhaps the pressure of living under constant threat of war has gotten to him; perhaps early onset of dimentia; perhaps lack of proper perspective; perhaps he needs an R&R leave of absence, since he exhibits an absence of clarity; perhaps he should be removed from office altogether.

  2. I guess he can now blame American Gays for the terror attack in Orlando and how they disrespected Islam, so they should immediately accept that Islam is correct and mend their ways? The Israeli Left wing continues to dig a deeper hole every time they open their mouths. Have they amnesia or because of their entitled elitism, living in their little rich colonies in Central Israel, do they believe the rest of Israelis are too stupid to understand that Arabs massacred Jews in Hebron and Jerusalem in the 1920s and 1930s, and even during the 1800s. While the secular elitist Socialsits ruled Israel from 1948 onward to 1967, there were Arabs massacring Israeli families, school children and other civilians within Israel?

  3. If he says that Israel occupies? He should be fired and sued for libel. Unbelievable an Israeli mayor who claims there is an occupation of Judea and Samaria by whom? What a traitor! The Israeli left is a 5th column working for Abbas and the EU for $$$ and titles. Screw you rotten leftist jerk. I hope you are not Jewish because you are entitled to burn in hell.

  4. How dumb can this guy be? Arabs were slaughtering innocent Jews living in the land between the River and the Sea long before Israel existed. If israel withdrew all its forces from the disputed territories today, nothing would change for the better. It would only make easier for jihadists to maim and murder Jews.

  5. How can Israel get anywhere when idiotic comments like this one abound?
    On the international scene, the Tel Aviv Mayor’s words have done untold damage. In one fell swoop he has given credibility to the false so called “Palestinian” narrative.
    Israel is a divided country that is only capable of negotiating with and making concessions to terrorists but incapable and unwilling to utterly crush the terrorist infrastructure and their leadership. A country that to all intents and purposes has lost all concept of sovereignty.
    The wounded terrorist can expect to receive the finest medical attention, jailed for a spell then eventually released. We have to face the reality that conservative advocates for Israel can no longer rationalise the irrational. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Israel with its current leadership is a floundering political basket case and no amount of excuses for inaction, such as: “You must consider this or that” “you must realise this or that” mean squat.

  6. This is what happens while we want to copy others, taking on their "values" sacrificing our foundations and traditions.
    Instead we should stands strong and proud offering much needed leadership to a world fast sinking into barbaric chaos.
    We need to start rebuilding the Nation on the "supernatural" – above the inherently selfish and egocentric human nature – unity and mutual guarantee the original Nation was established upon at Sinai.
    On such foundations we will be able to start solving our mounting problems, defeat our enemies and provide the positive example for the rest of humanity.

    Israel faces existential threats day in day out and your pathetic excuses for inaction is exactly what I was referring to. One should in fact question you not me as to what planet you live on. You fail to ever offer constructive criticism, just utter your usual leftist blather. Get it through your head, this Mayor with his comments has been a propaganda tool for Israel's enemies.

  8. Gil Solomon I agree with you whole heartily, Bibi is trying to please the Muslim in the Oval Office, and his hand R tight with so much garbage coming from the Israeli left, and the inept world leaders, I am hoping that with Lieberman as a defens minister things will get better he will use his iron fists against the Pa terrorists.

  9. great overwhealming desire to be accepted in liberal circles. Being politically correct, is a great human failing, that weak people see as being morally superior to thoe of another mind. Israel should be much larger and much safer than it is. England and France along with western allies screwed over the Jews resulting in wars, terrorism and Quisling characters.

  10. Alan Kardon Good question. Such unity and mutual guarantee can't be forced on people "from above". It has to be built from the grass roots, through small, mutually supportive circles doing such practical action that can give people immediate, positive emotional impressions and confidence in each other and in the method.
    I am working with a world wide organization that is facilitating, setting up such circles primarily among Jews.
