There’s Nobody Here But Us Bennetts

Many forget that Netanyahu's score on his actions during the Disengagement was a floor hugging 14%.

    Yori: “The gangster in this fable is, forgive my insolence, Benjamin Netanyahu.”.

    There was a time on the news that GW Bush visited Israel and in a meeting with Shas leaders, Eli Yishy said that he will vote against the government that was ready to pass what GW Bush supported. Here’s the conversation in part: GWB to Eli, “So, you’re willing to vote against the government?” Eli: “Yes”. GWB: “We have to have a little talk before you vote to see if you are willing to do that.” Since that time, Eli dropped out of the spot light of news, was quiet as a mouse on all issues, didn’t vote against the government and has not voted against the government to this day.

    Now, if one would do an analysis/review of all government actions, one will see that no matter who is in the PM position (Left, Right), his actions are the same and right in line of what the American Administration wants.

    What Bibi and Bennett are saying now is ONLY for election results and nothing more. Disengagements, demolitions and housing freezes is what Obama wants and that is what he will get…………..until the Mosiach comes. Bibi is spineless facing Obama's request, Bennett is spineless facing Bibi's request (regarding going against IDF orders of which he retracted); so, if/when Bennett faces Obama, there were will be a complete OBAMAnation and nullification of Bennett's housing values. There seems to be only one who is willing to stand his ground on the values of Judaism and we'll see how many votes he gets.

    Liad — you're showing tremendous insight and understanding of politics in general and Israeli politics specifically. The article is not wriotten by me, however, but by Menachem Rahat, who used to be the news desk chief at Maarive for decades. I'll ask him to respond after Shabbat. I don't think he will disagree with you either.

  3. DON'T LET THESE JERK DICTATE TO WHAT YOU CAN DO, HELL LOOK AT THE MESS WE'RE IN. WE SHOULD CLEAN OUR OWN DOOR STEP BEFORE TELLING OTHERES WHAT TO DO.

    Sorry about that Yori and thanks for your kind comments.

    The debate should be whether the IDF should be used against their own people. The premise should be that the army should never be used for such goals, as it is an illegal order to remove a Jew from their home. A soldier has no obligation to participate in a civil war against Jews. IT is a criminal misuse of the IDF. If we argue whether the soldier should obey or not, the debate is lost. As long as the debate is reduced to the argument about a soldier's private conscience, the debate is over.

    I don't understand all the love for Bennett.
    First he says he supports soldiers refusing orders. The next day he backs down off of his statement.
    He also is on record supporting giving autonomy to the Arabs in 39% of Judea and Samaria.
    He also went on CNN recently and said that the Arabs "should've turned Gaza into their Singapore".
    And by the way, he was Bibi's Chief of Staff from 2006-2008, and afterwards he ran the Yesha Council, which has been shown over the past 20 years to simply be a tool of the government instead of being a force trying to stop Oslo and Expulsions.
    Why do we like this guy?

  8. HoneyBee Deborah says:

    Bennett did not back down, as it was reported. We like him because we already know who Bibi is and what he does, and this man is independent, and has given no cause to believe he will betray us. What do you know about him in terms of positions he has taken that signify he will betray the right? The fact that he worked for Bibi is not enough in my book. I want to see something specific. He also provides competition for BIBI- and competition is healthy for any democracy.

  9. HoneyBee Deborah says:

    PS Milousdad What specific thing did Bennett do in Yesha Council that you are aware of that leads you to believe he will betray Israel. Ia m well aware of Yesha Council's betrayals. Also when did he serve in the Yesha Council, was it after 2005?
