Netanyahu Tries to Calm the Country but Plays Politics

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu calmed down the country two days ago, but more terror followed, so he tried again Thursday night with a speech and press conference that reminded everyone it’s politics as usual.

He issued a statement at a press conference, telling the nation what everyone knows:

This has been another difficult day for all of us, citizens of Israel. We are in the midst of a wave of terrorism. Terrorists that have been incited and who are driven with hate are trying to attack our people – babies, children, men and women, civilians and soldiers. Our hearts – the hearts of the entire nation – are with the families of the victims whose lives were cut short by reprehensible murderers.

He praised security forces and said what he said two days ago – that Israeli will overcome the latest escalation of terrorism that Prime Minister Netanyahu remanded everyone has been around since the re-birth of modern Zionism.

Prime Minister Netanyahu blamed Palestinian Authority and Hamas “mendacious incitement” and pointed out what we all know, that the Arab world spreads lies that it wants to restore the “status quo” on the Temple Mount while even Israeli Arab Knesset Members are insisting that Jews have nothing to-do with the holy site.

But at the press conference, Netanyahu said what he really has on his mind, and that is the totally irresponsible remarks yesterday by Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog.

The leader of the old Labor party, now called the Zionist Camp following the merger with Tzipi Livni’s faction, yesterday went on another self-destructive rant and instead of making the Israeli center-left feel that “united we stand and divided we fall,” he babbled about a government led by him and his cohort Tzipi Livni would have tackled terror.

He called on Prime Minister Netanyahu to resign, a move that would drive the country into financial and political chaos and destroy morale.

Netanyahu grabbed the importunity tonight and said:

We need to join forces in the face of the wave [of violence]. But the decision on whether to enter the government is in the hands of the parties. I want a wider government and unity in the nation.”

Jerusalem is burning and Netanyahu and Herzog are fiddling.

A Week of Intifada Miracles in the State of Israel

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Israeli media is filling up with grim tidings of escalating violence and the looming spectre of a third intifada. It is true there has been a spike in the number and intensity of lethal terror attacks on Israelis by Palestinian Arabs.

But despite the wave of terror that has washed over the Jewish State, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted Wednesday, “We have known worse times than this.” The prime minister added, “We will also overcome this wave of terrorism with determination, responsibility and unity.”

Netanyahu made the remarks just hours after a Palestinian Arab stabbed an IDF soldier in Kiryat Gat, grabbed the soldier’s rifle and then escaped into a building.

But the terrorist didn’t get far: not only was he spotted by police and shot dead, miraculously, he could not shoot anyone else with the gun that he stole because it was not loaded. The soldier had followed protocol to the letter, and had left the ammunition magazine out of his weapon.

There have been other miracles hidden among the tragedies in what may be an emerging third intifada.

In the deadly Arab terror attack that left Rabbi Eitam Henkin and his wife Na’ama dead last Thursday on the Samaria road between Itamar and Elon Moreh, their four children survived.

But contrary to the contentions of some who may not be familiar with terrorist mentality, the Henkin children were not spared by the Palestinian Arabs for due to strategic reasons. They were miraculously saved by “friendly fire.” The terrorists accidentally shot one another.

Finally, a third miracle – a “chazaka,” in Jewish thought, conveying a sense of reinforcement or permanence to the truth of the miracles.

In Petach Tikvah during Wednesday’s terror attack near the Kanyon HaGadol mall across the street from Beilinson Medical Center only one victim was stabbed by the Arab attacker. The terrorist was unable to stab more people because, miraculously, his knife broke.

“We will take firm action against terrorists, lawbreakers and inciters,” said the prime minister. “We have bolstered our troops and are using all means necessary to fight this terrorism.”

In the Jewish State, that includes prayer.

4 Hurt as Post-Simchat Torah Bus Attacked in Pisgat Ze’ev

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

A passenger was physically injured and three others were in shock on Monday night after the conclusion of the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, from a stone-throwing attack by Arabs in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev.

The attackers smashed the windows of a bus with the rocks, wounding a 25-year-old male passenger. Other passengers were traumatized and three were treated for shock.

The victim who was cut by the flying glass was evacuated for treatment to Sha’are Zedek Medical Center in the capital.

Security forces searched for the perpetrators.

Move Over Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Make Room for the Yinon Plan

Friday, September 25th, 2015

(JNi.media) Apparently, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, one of the most notorious anti-Semitic fake documents of all time, has a sequel to cover conspiracies about the modern State of Israel, and many Jews do not realize that it exists.

The theory is based on an article that was published in the 1982 winter edition of Kivunim, a “Journal for Judaism and Zionism,” by Oded Yinon, who writes that the agreements in the Camp David Accords should not be honored, and discusses how Arab states will be eroded along ethnic and religious lines. This article might otherwise have been forgotten, but conspiracy theorists got their hands on it and ran with the ball. The theoretical stance outlined by Yinon was expanded perhaps beyond the originator’s wildest dreams, so much so, that Arab conspiracy theorists are now ready to blame internal discord in their countries on a Zionist plot to destabilize their nations and to gobble them up as part of a future Israeli colonialist empire.

Just this week, the so-called Yinon Plan was mentioned in an article published in the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) with a title which, at first glance, seems to say something nice about Israel: “Israel Ready to Help Africans Produce Food.” This must be a way to produce click-bait shock for readers, since an IRNA headline reflecting well on Israel should raise readers’ eyebrows and hook them into reading the article. The very first sentence, though, makes clear the aim of the article is not to praise Israel: “For long (sic) Africa has been a missing link in the evolution of a Zionist plan to set up the so-called Greater Israel.” According to IRNA, Israel has its sights set on Africa’s oil reserves, its precious gems and diamonds, as well as uranium to increase its nuclear stockpile. The Iranian author claims to have retrieved this information from spy cables sent by the Guardian and Al Jazeera. It also said that Israel has been aggravating crises in African countries with a divide and conquer strategy, for which IRNA uses the “Yinon Plan” as evidence. Rather than a notion hatched out by a near-anonymous individual, IRNA asserts that the Yinon Plan has been policy from the moment Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism, first put his pen to paper. Occupying lands in 1967 was just a first step, IRNA insists, to a larger scheme of a complete Zionist stranglehold on the continent of Africa, and it is exploiting one conflict at a time.

The IRNA article cites the Global Research website for a handy summary of The Yinon Plan as “an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller, weaker states.” The summary goes on: “In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called on a division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one Sunni, one Shiite.” It sounds as if they think Vice President Joe Biden is Israeli, since this is exactly what he recommended for Iraq in a New York Times Op-Ed piece. Biden seemed to have been following the model of the agreement that ended the Bosnian war rather than Israeli strategists. The IRNA article then concludes by explaining the headline about Israelis helping the Africans to produce food (oh…that). The Israelis are sharing their water technology to help African countries deal with drought and produce food. But of course, that is just on the surface. What they are really doing must be akin to what that crafty Joseph in the Book of Genesis did as viceroy of Egypt—store up food as a way of manipulating those gullible Africans and placing them under Israeli control.

Abbas’ ‘UN Bomb” Might Be Proclamation of Independence of New Arab Country

Monday, September 21st, 2015

The most likely “bomb” that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmud Abbas said he will drop at the end of his speech in the United Nations later this month is a declaration that the PA is an independent country.

Speculation that his bomb will be the announcement of the extinction of the Palestinian Authority or the end of the Oslo Accords does not stand to reason. He has resigned or threatened to resign several times, so officially doing so from the podium of the United Nations would not even qualify as a stink bomb.

As for the Oslo Accords, officially breaking them also would not mean anything. The Agreement exists only as an historical record of one the modern history’s most ignorant, ill–conceived and poisonous ideas, a document that hypnotized the world to grant arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize.

Israel Shield wrote here yesterday that Abbas’ “bomb” will be“to say he accepts Israel as the Jewish State and proclaim he is willing to negotiate a full and extensive deal based on the 1967 borders.”

I don’t know if the writer was being funny or serious, but in either case, “Mr. Shield,” Abbas never would make such an announcement unless he wanted one of his brethren to shoot his brains out.

Yes, it would make sense for Abbas to declare Israel as a country for the Jews. It would be a cunning concession that would shut up Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has baited Abbas several times to make such a statement.

No, Abbas won’t do it because taking a step backwards in order to take two steps forward is forbidden in the Arab world when it comes to dealing with Israel. That is why Arafat did not grab the insane offers of former Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, one a suspected crook and the other a convicted crook, to give away all of the land it wants, for the time being, except for 3 percent of it.

The Arab world has never given up on its single-minded goal to erase Israel as a Jewish state. Despite the help of Britain during the period of the Mandate, it was not able to prevent the re-establishment of the State of Israel.

Instead of accepting the United Nations’ recognition of Israel with the Partition Plan’s indefensible borders that would have made it easier for them to overrun the tiny country, the Arabs eagerly threw all their ammunition and weapons against Israel to try to annihilate it immediately. They ended up with the 1949 “Temporary Armistice Lines” that gave Israel much more territory than under the Partition Plan.

Israel overcame economic hardship, undeclared war by Egypt and constant Arab raids until the Six-Day War in 1967, when Israel foiled the attempt by seven surrounding Arab states to finish off the Jews.

Abbas is an Arab Muslim and thinks like one, but he also is a brilliant though narrow-minded politician and magician who has hypnotized the world to accept him as man of peace at the same time he and his regime extol hate, venom and terror against Israel.

When he succeeded Arafat in 2005, he presented a new image of a Palestinian Authority leader, replacing the gun on the holster with a suit and tie. Abbas traveled around the world dozens of times, picking up diplomatic support from every continent and establishing embassies that helped convince politicians and media that the PA is a state for all intents and purposes.

All that was lacking was Israel’s agreement to his conditions, which one by one dropped off as topics of “negotiations” as provided by the Oslo Accords and various declarations by the Bush and Obama administrations.

Arab Knesset Member Damns Leftists as ‘Rich Racists’ Who Feign ‘Peace’ [video]

Monday, September 7th, 2015

An Arab Knesset Member dumped all over Knesset leftisits in a theatrical speech Monday that was hilarious for the simple reason that he said everything about bleeding heart liberals that a right-winger would like to state but can’t do so because of political correctness.

He labeled the leftists with several adjectives, such as “Ashkenazim,” “spoiled,” “snobs” and “racists.” And what about the leftists ‘agenda for peace?


Zahalka said exactly what right-wingers know about leftists:

They are the ones who told us ‘We have brought peace upon you!’ Shame on you.

The engineers of racism, the engineers of expropriation, of expulsion. Shame on you.

Zahalka’s speech came during a debate on the government proposal to finalize an agreement concerning royalties on offshore natural gas.

MK Stav Shaffir, one of the most extreme leftists in the old Labor party that now is merged with Tzipi Livni’s faction under the funny title of “Zionist Camp,” has asked the attorney general to investigate reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised to earmark nearly $250 million for the Arabs sector if Arab MKs did not vote against the natural gas deal.

That lit a fuse under Zahalka’s feet, and he launched into a 4-minute outburst of rage that could have made him a fortune, with proceeds for his constituents, if he saved it for the stage and sold tickets for the performance.

Shaffir was the perfect target because she represents the “peace and love” sector that brings back to mind the “limousine liberal “Jews in the 1960s who were all for integration of blacks and whites but had second thoughts if it meant that opening up neighborhoods for everyone would include their street.

A more current example is the rich north Tel Aviv leftists’ campaign for asylum for illegal immigrants, who have flooded the relatively poor area of southern Tel Aviv.

Former right-wing MK Michael Ben-Ari pulled off the stunt of the decade a couple of years ago when he brought a group of illegal immigrants to a swimming pool in north Tel Aviv, where the shocked liberals were infuriated.

Shaffir, who at the age of 30 is the youngest MK in Knesset history, has impeccable credentials as the perfect leftist.

She was a leader in the “cottage cheese’ protests three years ago and joined a Women of the Wall spectacle. She supports asylum for illegal immigrants whom she says should be classified as “refugees,” and, of course, she backs LGBT demands.

Earlier this year, she attacked right-wingers and said:

Don’t preach to us about Zionism, because real Zionism means dividing the budget equally among all the citizens of the country. Real Zionism is taking care of the weak. Real Zionism is solidarity, not only in battle but in everyday life.

So what is her beef that some of the gas royalties will help the Arab sector? Good question, and there is simple answer: Shaffir and the rest of the Opposition, as almost every Opposition party in the Knesset, have one ideology: Dump the coalition, especially when it is headed by Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Zahalka blew all his fuses.

The video below is n Hebrew, but here are just some of his remarks:

Since you [Shaffir] came to the Knesset, you never spoke to me. You never told me hello. I try and try to say hello and you do not answer.


At least, the extreme right are human beings; they smile at you and say hello. Even Yisrael Beiteinu MKs smile at us. But the members of the Labor party are the mother and father of racism! You invented racism!”

Shaffir, visibly hurt and upset by the accusations called him a liar, but Zahalka responded to almost everything she said with, “Shame on you.”

Grave Burning

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

As reported earlier, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s grandfather’s grave on the Mount of Olives was desecrated overnight by Arab vandals who destroyed and burned numerous graves. The Mount of Olives is one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the world.
