Roger Cohen Praises AJC’s Harris Attack on Bennett

Every once in a while, you can glean from the Chutzpah an entire world view.
A.J.C. Executive Director David Harris said Bennett’s remarks were “stunningly shortsighted.”

And then says the Rizhiner, we’ll have to choose. Do we follow the Baal prophets with their fantastic pyrotechnics, or do we follow Elijah who has nothing but the word of God to give us.

I pray that, come that day, our brethren in America will be able to tell the difference.

    Yori – So true.

    FINALLY, AFTER APPROX. 20 YEARS, BILLIONS OF WASTED FUNDS (MOSTLY TO THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION THE PA), TIME AND EFFORT, IT APPEARS THAT THE OBVIOUS HAS BEEN REALIZED, WHICH IS THAT THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ARAB "PALESTINIAN" TERRORIST STATE ON JEWISH LAND (E.G. THE 2-STATE SOLUTION) IS DEAD.

    IN FACT, NOT ONLY HAVE MOSHE YA'ALON (DEFENSE MINISTER / LIKUD), DANNY DANON (DPTY. DEFENSE MINISTER / LIKUD), URI ARIEL (HOUSING MINISTER / JEWISH HOME), AND NAFTALI BENNETT (MINISTER OF INDUSTRY…) FINALLY STATED PUBLICLY WHAT EVERYONE KNOWS TO BE TRUE, BUT SO TOO HAS EVEN DAVID HORROWITZ OF THE LIBERAL 'TIMES OF ISRAEL.'

    ITS ABOUT TIME!

    YORI – I AGREE.

    FINALLY, AFTER APPROX. 20 YEARS, BILLIONS OF WASTED FUNDS (MOSTLY TO THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION THE PA), TIME AND EFFORT, IT APPEARS THAT THE OBVIOUS HAS BEEN REALIZED, WHICH IS THAT THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ARAB "PALESTINIAN" TERRORIST STATE ON JEWISH LAND (E.G. THE 2-STATE SOLUTION) IS DEAD.

    IN FACT, NOT ONLY HAVE MOSHE YA'ALON (DEFENSE MINISTER / LIKUD), DANNY DANON (DPTY. DEFENSE MINISTER / LIKUD), URI ARIEL (HOUSING MINISTER / JEWISH HOME), AND NAFTALI BENNETT (MINISTER OF INDUSTRY, ETC. / JEWISH HOME) FINALLY STATED PUBLICLY WHAT EVERYONE KNOWS TO BE TRUE, BUT SO TOO HAS EVEN DAVID HORROWITZ OF THE LIBERAL 'TIMES OF ISRAEL.'

    ITS ABOUT TIME!

    MORE SO, MESSIANIC VIEW OR NOT, THE ARAB "PALESTINIANS" DO NOT DESIRE PEACE WITH ISRAEL, BUT MERELY AN END TO JEWISH SOVEREIGNTLY. THUS, IF THE ISRAELI WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA IN 2005 SERVES AS AN EXAMPLE, 2-STATES WILL NOT RESULT IN PEACE, BUT INSTEAD WILL PROVIDE THE ARABS WITH ANOTHER PLATFORM FROM WHICH TO LAUNCH ATTACKS AIMED AT DESTROYING THE JEWISH STATE. THIS HAS BEEN THEIR GOAL SINCE BEFORE ITS INCEPTION.

    FURTHER, AS AN ASIDE, EVEN IF THERE WAS CAUSE TO SUPPORT AN ARAB "PALESTINIAN" STATE NEXT DOOR THAT DID NOT SEEK OUR DESTRUCTION, WHICH FOR THE RECORD, I DON'T, NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL, NOW CLEARLY IS NOT THE TIME. CERTAINLY, WE NEED NOT GIVE BIRTH TO ANOTHER ARAB STATE AT A TIME WHEN THE ENTIRE OUMA IS MIRED IN CHAOS AND THE "COLLAPSE OF THE ARTIFICIAL ARAB STATES BASED ON THE SYKES-PICOT AGRREMENT" IS IMMINENT.

    THUS, JOHN KERRY, DAVID HARRIS AND ROGER COHEN EITHER ARE DELUSIONAL OR SELF HATING.

  3. I agree with the general direction of your article, but I am afraid that most American Jews are not able to get free from the view of the false prophets in America, Europe and Shimon Peres and miniscule but influential number of friends here in Israel. I hope that situation improves, but we have a way to go.

    TO all those leading the fight against the holocaust claims conference. Things have become to quiet. They just want the bad news to go away..I BELIEVE I AM THE ONLY RABBI OUT IN FRONT. I HAVE SENT REQUESTS FOR HELP TO HUNDREDS OF RABBIS. THEY JUST DO NOT CARE OR DO NOT WANT TO GET INTO POLITICAL TROUBLE. MY PARENTS HAVE BEEN LONG DEAD. THIS FIGHT IS FOR THE SURVIVORS AND IN MEMORY OF MY PARENTS AND RELATIVES MURDERED BY THE NAZIS. I NEED YOUR HELP. I am willing to take whatever they throw at me. my reputation as a fighter for holocaust memory and the survivors is well known. We are DAVID FIGHTING GOLIATH. SOME OF YOU HAVE MAJOR CONTACTS I DO NOT HAVE AND MANY OF YOU WRITE BEAUTIFULLY.. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    While I agree that decisions on Israel's security should be made by Israelis and not Americans, the past four Israeli Prime Ministers and Israel's current President all support a Palestinian State. Don't blame Americans for supporting the official position of Israel's government!

    Yehoshua Friedman · We have only to count on our Father in Heaven. Honestly. This one is a situation where the world is by definition going to be united against Israel, because this time it's about the real prize, and no one really wants the Jews to be truly independent in their God-given country. They want us here, but uder their thumb.

    But the gentiles are not the ones being tested here. The Jews are,especially American Jews.

    The Two State Solution needs to be buried.Naive people like A.J.C. Executive Director David Harris keep trying to resurrect it. They even slam people like Bennett who speaks the truth. Bennett wants to annex Area C where all the Jewish Towns are and a small amount of Arabs. The Arabs would get citizenship.
    Areas A/B where only Arabs live would be governed by the Arabs. Coexistence not war. Two state solution is just more war.

  11. Any country that bases their decisions on the whims of others, is a country that will not survive. The Jews are the only group that turns its back on their own in favor of support for Israel's antagonizers, it's a true enigma. However, the pathology doesn't rest with Israel, it is squarely on the shoulders of people like Friedman, Finkelstein, Chomsky, and others. These people are out of touch and I have long advocated that these lunatics conduct an experiment that will get them out of their cocoon. Why don't these people go and live in some of the Arab countries that they spend so much time defending and see what happens. Go over to Egypt, Syria, Iran, and " Palestine" among others and see what happens when they try to write a story that isn't cleared with the government or is unedited. See what happens when they try to speak out against an Arab dictatorship. Try to practice another religion. Do they see a representative government in the Arab states? Do the Arab states even have free and open elections. What sort of response will they get when they try to stand against terrorist groups. Would they like to see a school bus that their children just boarded being blown up? What would their response be if they opened the door to their house only to see their family slaughtered like cattle. What about having their daughter abducted, raped, and murdered. Perhaps, they may have a change of heart. Let them experience the pain and suffering that Israelis endure at the hands of sick, evil, and twisted Arab regimes, terrorist groups, and citizenry. If after experiencing all this they still feel the same way, I suggest they go live in an Arab nation of their choice, become a Muslim, and get the hell out of the way.
