Israelis are expressing shock and astonishment over the arrest last week of a 29-year-old Jewish leftist woman from Tel Aviv for collaboration with one of the worst Palestinian terrorists and murderers still above ground.
They should be neither shocked nor surprised.
The Jewish “peace activist” from Tel Aviv, 29-year-old Tali Fahima, has been arrested on
suspicion of planning terrorist attacks against Jewish targets and aiding arch-terrorist Zakaria Zubeidi of Jenin. She was assisting her Palestinian terrorist ‘lover’ in planning terrorist atrocities.
Tali had been a longtime activist in Israel’s pro-Palestinian anti-Israel Left. Along with the rest of her comrades, she frequently demonstrated for ‘peace’ and against Israeli ‘oppression’ and ‘occupation’ of Palestinians. Her personal alliance – that of a Jewish leftist and a Palestinian terrorist – is symbolic of the broader alliance between the anti-Semitic Jewish Left and Islamist fascism, and this is the real axis of evil currently endangering Israeli survival.
Tali’s arrest will come as a shock only for those who have been blissfully ignorant of the nature and the agenda of Israel’s radical Left over the past two decades. In reality, just as the American campus Left has long been little more than a movement of anti-Americanism, so Israel’s far Left is nothing more than a movement of anti-Israelism and Jewish self-hatred. Israel’s radical leftists seek the destruction of their own country. They consider their country an evil apartheid monstrosity and seem not to care how many dead Jews are required to end the Zionist abomination.
For the past two decades, too many of Israel’s leftists, led by the academic extremists and tenured traitors from Israeli universities, have served as attack dogs against their own country, as Israel’s version of Taliban John. Like Taliban John and the handful of other American-born terrorists, they regard their own country as the embodiment of all that is evil. They downplay – and in some cases even justify – Palestinian terror while denouncing every effort by Israel to defend its civilians.
Israeli leftists today serve as the as Israel-bashing court jesters for anti-Semitic and Israel-hating organizations, magazines and websites. The anti-Semites never tire of the rush of seeing yet another Jewish leftist willing to declare that all the problems of the planet are the Jews’ fault, that Jewish Israelis are evil and greedy and racist, that Israel is an aggressor and the obstacle to peace, and that Arab atrocities and violence are the understandable response of ‘oppressed’ Arabs.
The Israeli Left has produced its own school of historical revisionists, the ‘New Historians,’ who have rewritten history and distorted truth in order to advance the cause of Arab aggression and Islamofascism. These pseudo-historians are the moral equivalent of Holocaust deniers. Academic standards have been junked and leftist faculty members hired and promoted as acts of solidarity by other left-wingers within the university system.
Faculty members at Israeli universities routinely denounce their own country as a racist,
fascist anomaly. Some openly call for Israel to be replaced by a Palestinian-majority, PLO-led state.
A sociologist at Ben-Gurion University recently made headlines for publishing an article in European newspapers denouncing Israel for implementing ‘symbolic genocide’ in the form of assassinating Palestinian terror leaders. (Had Jews managed to assassinate Hitler in 1943, they would also have been guilty of genocide against Germans, according to this thinker.)
The articles of another Ben-Gurion University professor appear on neo-Nazi and Holocaust denial websites, including one run by the notorious Ernst Zundel. This academic routinely denounces Israel as a Nazi, fascist, terrorist country.
Tali Fahima is not the first traitor and collaborator with terror to emerge from the Israeli
radical Left. For the past two decades, the mantra of Israel’s far leftists has effectively been ‘The enemies of my country, right or wrong.’
A terror and espionage ring broken up in the 1970′s featured two Jewish leftists, one an ex-kibbutznik. Mordechai Vanunu, the communist graduate of Ben-Gurion University, recently was released from prison after serving a long term for nuclear espionage. Other Israeli leftists have been arrested for collaborating with and assisting terrorists.
Tali Fahima symbolizes everything that’s gone wrong with the Israeli Left over the past two decades. As was the case with the capture of Taliban John, her arrest should serve as a wake-up call and siren warning about the dangers posed to Israel’s survival by left-wing radicalism.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]
