Dozens of IDF Officers Protest Rivlin’s Presence at Haaretz-NIF Meeting

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

The expression of “what is a  Kohen doing in a cemetery,” where he is prohibited, may apply to President Reuven Rivlin and today’s New Israel Fund-Haaretz conference in New York City.

Dozens of IDF Reserve officers are conducting a protest outside the President’s official residence in an effort to pressure President  Rivlin to cancel his appearance at the conference because the anti-IDF Breaking the Silence is participating.

The officers said that President Rivlin, as a representative of Israel, must boycott the event organized by the New Israel Fund (NIF), coordinated with the Haaretz newspaper, to make clear his non-acceptance of groups such as Breaking the Silence that try to make Israel look illegitimate.

But Breaking the Silence is only the tip of the iceberg. The list of speakers and panelist reads like a “Who’s Who of the radical Left.

The office of the President stated:

The President will deliver his remarks during the conference of the Haaretz newspaper as he does in a variety of conferences organized by media from time to time.

Concerning the facts, it is important to note that in this case, we are speaking about the participation of one of dozens of participants during the day. It will take part in a panel that does not take place in the presence of the president, so there is no connection between them,

As for facts,, today’s event is not a media conference. It is a New Israel Fund conference that Haaretz is promoting and in which it is participating with its finest Israel bashers, such as Gideon Levy and Amira Hass.

Perhaps President Rivlin will not be present when Breaking the Silence speaks, but what about other speakers and panelists, some of whose names read like a Who’s Who of the radical Left?

And the question remains why is President Rivlin appearing and what will he say?

Yes,  he will have the opportunity to show his face to the extreme left-wing of American Jews and non-Jews, as well as officials from the Obama administration such as Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and PLO executive Saeb Erekat.

Public appearances are one of the President’s  most important functions, but why did he choose such a  group, unless he stuns them with a Zionist speech instead of patronizing them?

Here are some of the “Zionists” at the conference:

Arik Wade Ascherman. the Rabbis for Human Rights activist who single-handedly led leftists and Arabs to uproot more than 1,500 saplings in front of shocked elementary school students on Tu B’Shvat several years ago because they planted on land in Judea and Samaria.

The promotional material for today’s conference omits that little detail and states that he “is internationally recognized as a leading advocate for human rights and social justice as religious, Jewish and Zionist obligations,” such as rights for “the Negev Bedouin.”

Other speakers are:

Suhad Babaa, the executive director of Just Vision, ‘an organization dedicated to increasing media coverage and support for Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders working to end the occupation and build a future of freedom, equality, dignity and human security for all through unarmed means.’

Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and president of J Street.

Uri Blau, an investigative journalist for Haaretz, specializing in military and political affairs, corruption and transparency….Blau became the first Israeli journalist to be convicted for possession of classified military documents.

Hagai El-Ad, an Israeli human rights activist, is the executive director of B’Tselem.

Avner Gvaryahu, who  joined Breaking the Silence as a researcher and tour guide.

Another speaker is Arab Knesset Member Ayman Odeh, who last week refused to attend a meeting with Jewish leaders because it was to take place in the same building that is home to the offices of the Jewish Agency?

Other panelists and speakers are:

‘Rabbi’ Jill Jacobs, the Executive Director of T’ruah. [For information on T’ruah and President Rivlin’s joint appearance at the White House, click here.]

Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism.

Daniel J. Sokatch,  chief executive officer of the New Israel Fund.

Dr. Husam S. Zomlot, ambassador-at-large for Palestine [sic] and the executive deputy commissioner of the Fatah Foreign Relations Commission.

Haaretz editor Aluf Benn and a host of his writers will speak and appear on the panels, whose subjects include:

Beyond negotiations: Can the peace process be unfrozen to achieve more than ‘conflict management’?

What’s left: Is there a future for the progressive movement in Israel?

‘Droves of Arab voters:’ Is the struggle of Israel’s Arab citizens to equality the new focal point of the conflict?

Jerusalem burning: Is religion the solution or the problem?

Synagogue and state: Who defines the Jewishness of Israel?

Muslim Nutcase Says Mossad Stole His Shoe

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

The Mossad is breaking into Muslim homes and driving them crazy by taking possessions, such as a single shoe, according to the British Muslim who founded the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK.

Anti-Zionists should be cringing with embarrassment over Asghar Bukari’s Facebook and Twitter post, which in part read:

Are Zionists trying to intimidate me: Someone came into my home yesterday, while I was asleep. I don’t know how they got in, but they didn’t break in – the only thing they took was one shoe……. they] left one shoe behind, to let me know someone had been there.

He asked followers to “share this widely, and The JewishPress.com is happy to oblige, although Twitter has closed one of his accounts that posted the insanity.

Let’s not judge him harshly. Perhaps the Mossad really took the shoe to frame him. The Mossad probably firebombed a synagogue, put the shoe in the mud nearby and intended to put the shoe back in Bukhari’s house before calling the cops to catch him with the evidence.

And why one shoe? That is exactly the brilliance of the Mossad plot against Bukhari, who also will be charged with trying to fool police by hopping on foot to throw the police off guard.

It is all so obvious that the Mossad should be ashamed of such an amateurish scheme.

Before reading Bukhari’s rant, let’s look at a few other comments on Twitter after his shoe tweet went viral:

Zionists and Uncle Toms going bonkers. I’ve waited so long for this. Heaven. Now can I have my shoe back??

I will soon be doing a video on my now famous (chuckles to myself) shoe. Watch this space. Watch this space. Haters gonna hate

Zionists are bullies they operate to intimidate muslims. Don’t get bullied. Don’t let them operate in the shadows

Actually thinking about it, they also stole dead children’s body parts #MossadStoleMyShoe Can’t believe zionists upset I said they stole something. Hello they stole the whole of Palestine #MossadStoleMyShoe

Funny thing is the zionists now trying to desperately hide their game of intimidation on my Twitter feed. Bit late the horse has bolted

And now for his piece de resistance:

 

Bukhari's post.

Waiting for an Aid Flotilla to Yarmouk

Monday, April 13th, 2015

I call on the ISM to get your act in gear and send your activists to Yarmouk. The “Palestinians” of Yarmouk need you as human shields to protect them from ISIS and Assad’s troops.

This is your opportunity to prove to the world that you are more than just antisemites and Israel haters, and are truly concerned about the welfare of “Palestinians”.

Among the most basic activist program I expect to see from you other studnt “Pro-Palestinian” groups is a mass US Campus sit-in and protest for Yarmouk. Perhaps even a Yarmouk Week. You can lie on the floor and pretend your throats were cut.

I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Yarmouk Aid Flotilla, which will bravely break the siege in and around the neighborhood, to provide the Yarmouk “Palestinians” with much needed bags of long-expired medicines and empty boxes.

I will be putting up a sign-up sheet for all the Leftwing activists to volunteer to go and walk the Yarmouk children to and from school every day.

And when that list is filled up, I will put up another volunteer list for planting and harvesting olive trees.

I call on all the rabbis concerned about human rights to travel to Syria and personally guide foreign journalists around the neighborhood so they can meet the desperate families and hear stories about the horrible conditions they are in.

And those women from the checkpoint watch groups must visit every ISIS checkpoint to make sure the “Palestinians” have free passage and are not degraded.

And not to mention, they need to directly confront the ISIS soldiers and rebuke them in person. Bring your cameras.

And I expect Adalah and other NGOs to be supply the much needed personal testimonials about ISIS war crimes to the UN investigation teams.

And for all those “pro-Palestinian” activists groups that have been astonishingly silent on Yarmouk these past two years, I remind you to immediately post a statement of concern on your website now that Yarmouk’s “Palestinians” are in the headlines, only so you don’t look like complete hypocrites.

I’m glad to see that you are at least doing that last item on my list.

Herzog-Livni ‘Zionist Camp’ Talked with Arab MK Tibi about Coalition

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

The merged party that brought together Labor and Tzipi Livni under the banner of the “Zionist Camp” has talked with Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi about a possible coalition government.

The fact that Labor party chairman Yitzchak Herzog would even agree to talk with an anti-Zionist Arab MKs such as Tibi is only another page in Herzog-Livni’s new book to prove once again that “you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

It is not clear whether Herzog approached Arab political leaders or vice-versa, but both sides agree there were talks on the possibility of Arab parties breaking the taboo against joining a Jewish-dominated coalition in the Knesset.

Channel 10 reported that it was Herzog who took the initiative, and he confirmed there were contacts but insisted that it was MK Tibi who approached him.

Remember, Herzog and Livni merged their two parties under the clever slogan of the “Zionist Camp,” just in case anything thinks that expelling hundreds of thousands of Jews from Judea and Samira is not Zionistic.

The theory is that it is better for Jews to be a majority in “Auschwitz Borders,” as termed by former Labor party official and Ambassador to the United Nations Abba Eban, than to be “surrounded by Arabs.” By the way, this is exactly the situation of the Jews in Netanya and Hadera, except that they are not surrounded by Arabs on all sides because they have the Mediterranean Sea to protect them on the west.

And who is Ahmed Tibi, with whom Herzog talked about a future coalition with the “Zionist Camp”?

He was elected to the Knesset in 1999 after serving as an adviser to Yasser Arafat. As a Knesset Member, he supported terror under the euphemism of the “intifada.”

Tibi opposes Israel being a Jewish state, which he calls “racist.”

He backs abolishing the Law of Return that allows Jews all over the world to move to Israel as citizens, but he backs the so-called Arab “right of return” for third, fourth fifth and six-generation Arabs living in foreign countries but classified as “refugees” by the United Nations because their great-great-great–great grandparents lived in Israel once upon a time.

Tibi wants to ban the HaTikvah national anthem and the blue and white Jewish flag bearing the Star of David.

In a radio interview last July where he refused to use the word ‘terrorists’ regarding the murderers of three yeshiva youth,  Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Sha’ar and Eyal Yifrah. Tibi blamed “the government of Israel, Naftali Bennett and the rabbis who incited to murder Palestinians” for the revenge killing of Mohammed Abu Khder.

Herzog can breathe a sigh of relief that Tibi rejected the idea of joining a Siamese twin coalition headed by Herzog and Livni.

However, if the “Zionist Camp” forms the next coalition, Tibi said it might get the support of Arab MKs in critical votes in exchange for more funds for the Arab sector.

Attorney General May Indict Arab MK Haneen Zoabi for Incitement

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein is considering indicting Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi for incitement last year when she told demonstrators that Israeli Arabs who are government guards “should be scared of us.”

Zoabi has been arguably the most outspoken anti-Zionist and protagonist in the Knesset, having called Israel a racist state, describing IDF soldiers as criminals and terrorists and generally trashing the government and damning the country that she is supposed to be serving.

She also participated in the IHH-terrorist flotilla in 2010, in which dozens of armed men brutally attacked mostly unarmed Navy soldiers who came on board to prevent the boat from breaking the maritime embargo against Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Zoabi is a member of the Balad party, which produced Azmi Bashara, who fled Israel after being indicted for aiding Hezbollah terrorists in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

A lawyer for the anti-Jewish state Adalah organization, acting on behalf of Balad, wrote Weinstein that Israeli prosecutors do not put public figures on trial for spontaneous comments made in “the heat of the moment” and that Weinstein should explain to the court why he “discriminated” aganst Zoabi.

One of the reasons that other public figures have not been indicted for incitement is because they have not incited against Arabs, although one or two should have been tried and convicted for saying such things as,”Shoot the settlers in their legs.”

No Jewish MK ever has aided or encouraged attacks on Arabs.

But why should Zoabi be tried for incitement?

Here is what she had to say about the three Hamas terrorists who kidnapped and murdered three yeshiva students last June:

 They are not terrorists, even if I do not agree with their actions, these people [the murderers] do not have any escape, any escape.”

On pledging loyalty to Israel, she has said:

When you agree with the ‘Jewish state’ idea, you necessarily agree with the idea of loyalty to this state. Rejecting the ‘Jewish state’ concept will block the road for anyone who demands our loyalty to such a state.”

She also has lumped Tzipi Livni with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avgidor Lieberman, calling all of them “fascists.”

Zoabi also thinks a nuclear Iran is not such a bad idea, saying”

I am afraid of real risk rather than of potential risk. The Iranian bomb was only ‘a potential’ threat. The real danger was the IDF… It is more dangerous to the world, more dangerous to everyone, more dangerous to the Palestinians, to Israelis, to have Israel as the only powerful state…The Israeli violence of the army is an outcome of Israel’s convenient feeling that no one will restrict her.’

Weinstein actually is wrong to even to think about putting her on trial for incitement.

She should be tried for being a traitor.

Minnesota Univ. Student Official Compares Group Backing Israel with KKK

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

A University of Minnesota’s graduate student representative to the Board of Regents has compared Students Supporting Israel (SSI) to the Ku Klux Klan, the Campus Reform website reported.

Student representative Damien Carriere labeled SSI a “hate group” in emails sent to the university’s student government executive board in a campaign to remove the founder of the pro-Israel group from the Student Services Committee.

Campus Reform reported that the committee “is responsible for the distribution of millions of dollars in funds to various student groups.”

“He is a member of a hate group (SSI) and I think he comes in with a fishy agenda,” Carriere wrote in a series of e-mails Campus Reform obtained. “[Ilan Sinelnikov’] is a member of a hate group (SSI) and I think he comes in with a fishy agenda.”

After members of the executive board of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA) began questioning his classification of SSI as a hate group, Campus Reform stated that Carriere wrote that the Student Services Committee “would fund a KKK group if they justify their request well. So let us consider that they do pass the student group test.”

The GAPSA later removed Sinelnikov because they were not convinced he had “demonstrated the ability to remain impartial.”

“I was the only candidate singled out for questioning and such bias scrutiny by the certain members of the Assembly,” Sinelnikov told Campus Reform.

“It is unfortunate that they were unable to put aside their bigotry towards my national origin when performing their duties as student representatives,” he added. “GAPSA proved its bias and ignorance against me because of my political beliefs and my ethnic background. Being singled out based for those reasons after a long campaign against Students Supporting Israel reminds me why Students Supporting Israel was founded–to fight anti-Semitism and bias on college campuses”

The university’s undergraduate student body president told Campus Reform, whose self-stated mission is to be “a watchdog to the nation’s higher education system” and expose “bias and abuse on the nation’s college campuses.” that she will take action in defense of Sinelnikov, who she believes has been discriminated against.

Carriere’s reasoning for comparing SSI with KKK is that members of the group who support Israel belong “to a certain ideology which is present among some citizens of that state that has been refusing rights to minorities outside of the recognized borders of that country.”

In another e-mail, Carrier said Christian Crusaders for Christ also is a hate group because it “is named after a bloody and inherently racist episode in European history.”

The term crusade is considered by many as offensive because it refers to the will of chasing the Muslims from their land by mean [sic] of war,” Carriere wrote.

Now that it is Thanksgiving, perhaps Carriere will demand that the United States return the Land of the Free to the Indians and move to a reserve.

Neturei Karta Joins Arab Anti-Zionist Colleagues to Remember Arafat

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

A bunch of anti-Zionist Jews from the Neturei Karta cult joined Palestinian Authority Arabs in Ramallah on Tuesday for a commemoration marking the 10th year since the death of Yasser Arafat, who turned the Nobel Prize into an award for terrorism.

The small Jewish representation from the sect waved Palestinian Authority flags, according to the official PA news agency WAFA, which also took care to dig up the canard that Israeli poisoned Arafat although it admitted that French investigators said that traces of polonium supposedly found on his body were not enough to prove that poison was the cause of his death.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas praised Neturei Karta for tis dedication to the Arab cause and added, according WAFA’s report, “that people from different religious backgrounds can live together in coexistence.”

It forgot to add that the Palestinian Authority regime’s understanding of “coexistence” is conditioned on no one disagreeing with it.
