WE'RE ALL BOZOS ON THIS BUS

Bibi Frees Killers, Gives Construction, Cancels Construction, La Di Da

The ultimate goal of the prime minister's current policy melange, as always, is political survival.

As this picture exhibits, Netanyahu's political foundation relies on right-wingers (like Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz sitting next to him) and the Orthodox, without being one himself. He must devise maneuvers to keep the right at his side, while supporting the secularist Ashkenazi elite where he really belongs.

Here’s the only real purpose of anything and everything Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been doing regarding the “peace negotiations” with half of the Palestinian leadership: staying alive.

Netanyahu cannot afford to let his coalition government collapse this early in its term, because there’s a serious danger that he would lose the next elections. He may not even be able to retain his position of leadership in his own Likud party. The settlers, who supported him more than they care to admit last time around—because practically their entire local leadership is on Bibi’s government’s payroll—are furious at the prime minister. Their roads are unsafe, the secret police is dismantling their outposts, their archenemy has been appointed state attorney, and Tzipi Livni is discussing their fate, with Bibi’s blessings, behind closed doors, with thugs and gangsters.

Now comes the third phase in those negotiations, when Israel has promised to release the first batch of seriously bloody handed Arab murderers. The list is awful: men who burned women and children alive and blew up buses with dozens of innocent civilians in them. The kind of scum that would make the earth open up and scream in agony as they step into their freedom buses.

It’s the kind of move that could have been a Mandela gesture if it came against the background of real achievements on the way to a modicum of peaceful coexistence. As it happens, since the notion of peace is so delusional that the negotiations must be done in complete secrecy—the next prisoners’ release looks more like a capitulation to evil.

It’s also the kind of move that could bring down Netanyahu’s government, with a walkout not of “just” his Jewish Home coalition partner, but also of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s Israel Beiteinu election partner, as well as a number of Likud party MKs and ministers.

Israel Beiteinu has already decided not to extend its campaign partnership with Likud, which cost both parties combined about a dozen seats last time around.

All of these political entities are heavily influenced by the settler movement, which is a sleeping giant at this point, but can become a raging, or, more likely, a panicky giant.

What to do, what to do? Of course: announce sweeping construction starts across Judea and Samaria, to coincide with letting out the very men who would happily go about murdering the folks settling in those constructions. It’s brilliant, because it pleases the settlers, who now have something to lose, so they stay on Bibi’s wagon even as he makes “painful concessions,” letting go of Jew killers.

He doesn’t have to do anything, just have his PR people deliver a promise that in a few weeks he will announce yet another promise to take bids for new housing in the disputed territories.

This will anger the Palestinians and the Americans, who will declare that Bibi is killing the peace—which doesn’t really exist, because the Palestinians will never recognize that Israel is a legitimate Jewish state, will never denounce the right of return, will never give up East Jerusalem, will never agree to Jewish settlements east of the 1949 armistice line.

Then the Americans will start threatening—they won’t even have to write new threats, the ones from a few months ago, when Bibi initiated exactly the same PR maneuver, are still fine.

And then Bibi will just not make good on his promise, as he hasn’t done before, the way he buried the Levi committee’s recommendation to impose Israeli law wherever Israelis reside in Judea and Samaria, and so remove the scourge of civilians living under permanent martial law. Empty promises are Bibi’s specialty. Remember his promise last year of going into gaza this time and removing the Hamas criminal government once and for all? Remember how, a mere two weeks later, Bibi, Barak and Lieberman announced that not going into Gaza and signing an accord legitimizing the Hamas government was the astute thing to do?

  5. This started out a really nice article, but I can't agree with your conclusion. Obama is putting the screws on Israel because everything else he has done has been an utter failure, for example, Obamacare. So now he needs to be able to leave a lasting legacy. That makes Israel "it."

  6. Politics, and the ordinary people suffer. God Bless Israel.

  7. Walter Richards says:

    Then the Americans will start threatening Not exactly. Hussein Obama is threatening. Israel must say no to this lying, double crossing phony

  8. Don Mcglaun says:

    WELL SAID. GOD WILL MOST CERTAINLY PROTECT ISRAEL. THEY ARE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE. HE'S JUST WAITING FOR THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE TO PUT THEIR FAITH IN HIM AND NOT MAN. HOWEVER, AMERICA HAS NO SUCH SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. WHEN AMERICA PRAYED AND WORSHIPED HIM AND WAS A FRIEND TO ISRAEL, WE WERE BLESSED BUT NOW WHEN AMERICA AS A WHOLE HAS KICKED HIM OUT OF OUR LIVES AND OUR COUNTRY, AND CEASED BEING A FRIEND TO ISRAEL, WE ARE RAPIDLY ENTERING A TIME THAT WILL BRING CURSES ON US IF WE DON'T CHANGE OUR WAYS. WHETHER OR NOT U BELIEVE THE BIBLE, READ AT LEAST THE PROPHETIC PORTIONS. BOTH OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT. SO FAR IT'S 100%. SO WHY THINK IT WILL CHANGE NOW? I'M JUST SAYING…………..

  9. Perhaps Kerry is going to unveil his plan for peace by offering to create a "Nuevo Jerusalem" in the Sonora desert. Nice one, Yori (always a good read btw). If I were to put myself in the shoes of certain people, I could see a strong desire in them to detach from the middle east. By being energy independent and by cutting ties with Israel or at least looking "neutral" in the eyes of Israel's enemies, they think peace will be a lot closer. At the same time, I've seen the shoes piled up inside the concentration camps, and those shoes aren't dancing around. Whatever games they're playing, they need to imagine which futures and which things and people end up in piles at the end of this game of musical chairs we shouldn't be playing in the first place. If the chair has been in the old man's family for generations and he wants to sit in it, who has the right to pull the chair from underneath him? Who are all these yahoos acting like they have the right to sit in his chair? One chair, One Israel. It's not a game.

  10. May Hashem protect us from our leaders.

  11. NOW THAT THE PALESTINIAN TERRORISATS HAVE REJECTED KERRY'S PROPOSALS, WITH A NO TO EVERYTHING, INCLUDING NO RECOGNITION OF ISRAEL AS A JEWISH STATE, I HOPE THAT PM NETANYAHU TELLS ABBAS TO GO SUCK EGGS AND NO MORE MURDEROUS BASTERDS TO BE RELEASED.
    ABBAS HAD NO INTENTION OF MAKING PEACE WITH ISRAEL.
    NOW ABBAS HAS THE ARAB LEAGUE SIDING WITH HIM.
    IF ANOTHER WAR BREAKS OUT, THEN ISRAEL MUST FINIISH OFF THE ARABS. NO STOPPING. LET THEM BEG FOR PEACE. ISRAEL MANAGED TO FEND OFF 5 ARAB ARMIES WHEN ISRAEL HAD NO ARMY. THEY BEAT EVERY ARAB ARMY IN EVERY SUBSEQUENT WAR,
    NO MORE ARTICITCE.

    BIBI FELL FOR THAT.
    IF HE RELEASES EVEN ONE MORE MURDERER, THEN HE SHOULD RESIGN, AND A PRIME MINISTER APPOINTED WHO KNOWS HOW TO DEAL WITH ARAFAT INA SUIT, ABBAS.

  12. A very rational stance.

  13. Ken Kelso says:

    Great article, which basically says Bibi saying he will build holmes for Jews in East Jerusalem is a lie.
    Bibi is saying this now so people don't focus on the Palestinian mass murderers he's freeing.
    Bibi even freed a couple of months ago the Palestinian terrorist Nazi Atiyeh Salem Musa who axed to death 67-year old holocaust survivor Isaac Rotenberg.

    Great post i saw about this.
    The freeing of these savages is a monstrous transgression against the Jewish reverence and exaltation of life.It is unforgivable. Photo: Relatives of Israelis killed in terror attacks holding pictures of their murdered loved ones as they demonstrate outside the Supreme Court in Jerusalem yesterday The Mayor of Ramallah was among those celebrating and partying overnight with these cold blooded murderers, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (below, center) hugged them and called them my brothers” – the Western media still insist on calling Abbas a “moderate”. The PA has announced it will pay the released prisoners a stipend of $2,000 a month.

    As Algemeiner noted, "many in the media ((including the Guardian, The Independent, and the Irish Times,) have whitewashed the violent, and often brutal crimes of the prisoners being released, and, conversely, have depicted the families of the soon-to-be released prisoners in a disturbingly sympathetic light. So, in addition to listing details about the per …Holocaust survivor in 1989.
