IDC Herzliya Campus A Day on Campus

To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.



Anat Berko, Unlike Bibi, Not Afraid to Shout-Down our Enemies

In the diplomatic, defense, policy and hasbara information fields Israel has been failing dismally and dangerously. Here and there Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gives a wonderful powerful speech about our inalienable rights to our Land and Jewish History, but most of the time he’s drowning in his conceptual “center” trying to be wise and “diplomatic.” One of his dangerous misconceptions is the concept of a fairy-tale “demilitarized Palestine,” when the Arabs refuse to accept such a state.

One day after Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett declaredthat the notion of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had reached a “dead end”, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a response to the controversial statement on Monday, saying, “Foreign policy is shaped by the prime minister, and my view is clear.”

“I will seek a negotiated settlement [with the Palestinians] where you would have a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state,” Netanyahu told Reuters when asked about Bennett’s remarks.

They demand a normal state with a fully equipped army and the IDF behind barbed wire.

The Palestinian Authority on Thursday rejected any Israeli plans to retain territory or even maintain a security presence on any portion of the West Bank or east Jerusalem after the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

Peace with Israel is not possible unless a Palestinian state with full sovereignty is established in the pre-1967 lines with east Jerusalem as it capital, Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for PA President Mahmoud Abbas, announced.

It’s a refreshing pleasure to read of Anat Berko and how she managed to shout-down the pro-Arab hecklers at University of Florida, Gainesville on Oct. 10 (Hecklers Flee Israeli Speaker at U of Florida)

Berko showed that it’s possible to have a hasbara victory, even on campus. She had been invited by CAMERA. I’d love to see her representing Israel at the United Nations or be our Minister for Foreign Affairs.

We must stop creating our foreign policy according to “compromise.” Israel must make policy according to what’s best for the State of Israel, a truly sovereign Jewish State.

One Response to “Anat Berko, Unlike Bibi, Not Afraid to Shout-Down our Enemies”

  1. The "peace process" serves to delegitimize not only Israel's right to its ancestral homeland, but to its very right to exist. For if Israel agrees that the Arab's have a RIGHT to a state within Israel's borders, then by definition Israel is an occupying power that disenfranchises the rights of an oppressed people. The fact that Israel is willing to cut off a limb to appease Jew-hating Arabs is not viewed as a supreme sacrifice for the sake of peace, but rather an admission of guilt and a display of weakness which gives succor to her enemies. Enough! The Jew-hating Arabs must go. Israel must never surrender her right to exist in all of her ancestral homelands.
