Yaalon: Abandon Corrupted Paradigm


.

4) The Peace Process under the Olso framework is “a huge burden that we [the Likud] inherited and yet we have to maneuver very carefully to avoid losing power by being rash. You cannot turn a big ship around very quickly.” Yaalon praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for his ability to offer genuine, good faith negotiations to the Palestinian Authority (which the PA has unequivocally rejected) while maintaining Israel’s continued settlement and development of the whole Land of Israel, consistent with the values of the Likud Party.

5) Addressing the Iranian nuclear threat, Yaalon described three main lines of attack that can be effectively employed: First, complete diplomatic isolation from the international community (“Why is Ahmadinejad welcomed to speak at Columbia University in NYC?”). Secondly, crippling economic sanctions on Iran’s oil industry and Central Bank, as has already been approved by the EU, as well as the US House & Senate, “but not yet by the current US President.” Thirdly, Yaalon stated that there is a very credible military option–even with Israel acting alone–with a high probability of success in permanently halting Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Yet he cautioned, “it can be difficult to have a credible military option as a real deterrent when many voices within Israel itself are publicly saying that it is not.”

Finally, Yaalon said he was optimistic about Israel’s future. He believes in “the ultimate wisdom of the people,” irrespective of the current level of public political hubris. “We are awakening.”

Blaming Israel for the violence in Gaza, he ends up justifying Hamas’s terrorism.

We take US “aid” for psychological reasons-if we have an allowance, that means we have a father.

ZIM Piraeus isn’t Israeli-owned or flagged, incidentally, it is Greek operated.

Foolish me, thinking the goals were the destruction of Hamas thereby giving peace a real chance.

The free-spirted lifestyle didn’t hold your interest; the needs of your people did.

And why would the U.S. align itself on these issues with Turkey and Qatar, longtime advocates of Hamas’s interests?

Several years ago the city concluded that the metzitzah b’peh procedure created unacceptable risks for newborns in terms of the transmission of neo-natal herpes through contact with a mohel carrying the herpes virus.

The world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people.

We were quite disappointed with many of the points the secretary-general offered in response.

Judging by history, every time Hamas rebuilds their infrastructure, they are stronger than before.
