Labor: Netanyahu Declared War on the World

Israeli singer Dana International won the 1998 Eurovision, giving the folks at home the feeling that they're part of the civilized, cultured Europe, even while living in the Levant, surrounded by hostile Arabs. The left has been pushing the button of Isolation threats on account of settlement construction, and secular Israelis are buying it.

You threaten to take away that nostalgic notion that they belong in Europe: the Israeli singer in the Eurovision, the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team’s victories in the European league – and you’re seriously impeding their way of life.

Secular Israelis, much like that girl from Oshkosh, perpetually feel that they should be someplace else. That’s why there are so many Israelis where you live: they’re someplace else.

Stop any Israeli and ask them which they’d rather give up, participation in the Eurovision or East Jerusalem – I expect the results will be surprisingly even. If not worse.

  1. Live by faith in God and build your housing. The rest of the world that counts is for you.
    God is for you & no one can win against Him! Shalom!

    Great article. But I do have a question and a statement. Regarding the headline…I hope Netanyahu wins the war. Regarding the content, exactly what "future" of the current "peace talks?"

  3. Bobby Harris says:

    if I was in the white house I would allow Israel to build homes anywhere in Israel I would say yes you can build whatever you want and you can do whatever you want to do its your homeland. I would also give them whatever they need. they can have it. I would being America and Israel together even more stronger then ever, no one could dare touch it or remove it from anything. if someone threatens it then they will be caught. I love Israel and would allow them to do whatever they need to do for their own people period. I support it

  4. MK Shai should rather keep his mouth shut. If he differs from BB he should discuss it with BB privately. By airing his views and criticizing BB in public it just shows that the Knesset is divided and that gives Israel's enemies a sense of satisfaction. Israel now needs to show the world that they are united. Not good from Shai

  7. I am against efforts to make peace that involve Israel in such a way that demands that they give up ANY of their land. I know it sounds weary to many people that I state that God brought Israel back into this land, BUT that is EXACTLY what God has done! THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A NATION OF PALESTINE, despite what the Dutch claim. When the Arab nations around Israel attacked; God continued to extend Israel’s borders. Israel even regained Jerusalem and the Temple mount! These events/wars have been an obvious fulfillment of God’s promise to bring Israel back into his land in the end times. He even specified that the nation would be born in ONE day. That day was May 14, 1948. God’s word teaches us that in the end times when Israel is brought back, that they would never be fully removed again. To make a so called peace deal which involves giving away the land that God promised Israel is a huge sin. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

    Jack Rubin, a constituent of Nelson’s and a survivor of several Nazi concentration and death camps, said the way it is now, many Holocaust survivors are living below the poverty line and can’t afford two hearing aids let alone someone to come into their house daily to help out. He suggested that the German government should contribute. “US taxpayers are already burdened enough,” he said, adding, “We are not schnorrers.We are not beggars. What we are asking for is what we deserve.”

    The furor over remarks by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry show that the Palestinian Authority-Israeli “quality that they all share, so stupendously in an exhibitionist way, is to explain why it’s the U.S.’s fault,” http://www.jewishpress.com/news/breaking-news/pa-and-israel-agree-its-all-kerry-and-obamas-fault/2014/01/16/

    TO SAY ISRAEL WILL BE REPOPULATED, I WONDER WHERE PEOPLE WHO CONSTITUTE MORE THAN 25% OF WORLD POPULATION WILL OCCUPY IN THAT SMALL LAND.

  11. Hirh Prince GenesisDawuda Ddiv says:

    GOD'S PROMISE FOR ABRAHAM IS THE WHOLE WORLD WITH ITS CAPITAL IN JERUSALEM. WHERE ALL THE TORAH ELEMENTS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED ON TEMPLE MOUNT.

  12. Juliana Victoria says:

    In a statement whose arrogance and contempt he seemingly could not see, the Vatican’s legal advisor in Israel, David Jaeger, told an international conference in Haifa Tuesday that Jerusalem was too important a city to leave in the hands of either “Palestinians” or Jews. Jaeger’s view was that the status of Jerusalem required the approval of the international community as a whole. Ironically the Vatican, which claims to be spiritual home to one billion of the world’s Christians, rejects the biblical stipulation granting everlasting possession of ancient Canaan, inclusive of Jerusalem, to the Jewish people. Since 1947 it has sought to have Jerusalem internationalized, confident that with Rome’s massive global constituency the pope will be able to exercise substantial control over the city. Jaeger is historically on solid ground when he says the Palestinian Arabs should have no say over Jerusalem. The city has never been an Arab capital and the “Palestinians” have no historic or national rights to it (or to any other part of Israel’s biblical homeland). The Jews, by contrast, have venerated the city as their holiest site for over 3000 years. Israel is the only nation that has ever had Jerusalem as its capital. During centuries of exile, Jews everywhere prayed daily to return to Jerusalem in order to be able to once again worship their God in this place. Jerusalem is described in the New Testament as the “City of the great King,” In recent history, it has only been while under Jewish administration that Jerusalem has flourished and that protected access to all of its holy places (including Christian and Muslim sites) has been guaranteed. Between 1949 and 1967, when the Arab kingdom of Jordan occupied the eastern part of the city, the rights of Jews and Christians to visit their holy places was restricted, sometimes denied. The Jewish Quarter of the Old City was left to rot, its synagogues sacked and burned. Despite this, the Vatican believes it should have a say that could deny the right of the Jewish people to keep their beloved capital in their hands.”
    In January 31, 2000, Time Magazine reported that “a group of establishment figures in Israel has endorsed the idea of sharing Jerusalem with the Palestinians. ‘This is the real beginning of slaughtering of sacred cows,’ said Shlomo Gazit, a former head of Israeli military intelligence. After meetings between Israeli and Arab academics, diplomats and retired military officers sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation and the University of Oklahoma, the participants agreed that West Jerusalem should serve as the capital of Israel and East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. . .. .’There is ideology and reality, and we have to be realists,’ said Joseph Ginat, an anthropologist at Haifa University who initiated the project.”
