Silvan Shalom – Israel Can’t Trust US Brokering of Future Agreements

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Minister Silvan Shalom, on Reshet Bet’s Yoman HaBoker with Aryeh Golan, criticized the US administration this morning, saying that Israel won’t be able to trust the US to broker any future agreements.

Shalom told Golan that according to the Oslo Accords, signed on September 13, 1993, and sponsored by the White House together with President Bill Clinton, no side is allowed to make unilateral steps that violate the agreement.

And now, the US, “instead of censuring or threatening the Palestinian Authority for its unilateral moves [at the UN] that are in complete breach of their obligations per the Oslo Accords, the US is saying it will give the PA backup for their unilateral steps!”

Golan pointed out that the US said they are “reassessing”.

Silvan responded, the US is telling Israel, that Israel “should not sign any agreements in the future [with the PA], because every treaty is in danger of being breached.”

Silvan clarified this further stating the US is apparently telling Israel that “every agreement signed with the Palestinians, even agreements sponsored and backed by the US, in the end won’t receive the US’s backup and support – even after they sponsored it! It’s inconceivable.”

Silvan Shalom made it clear that any imposed settlement between Israel and Palestinians won’t work, and the only option is negotiations.

President Obama is angry at PM Netanyahu, after Netanyahu said that current conditions will not allow for the creation of a Palestinian State. Netanyahu was referring to both the internal conditions of the Palestinian Authority and the external realities of the region.

Alan Dershowitz Says Bill Clinton is Wrong: Netanyahu’s the ‘Guy to Make Peace’

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

World-renown civil rights attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says former U.S. President Bill Clinton is mistaken about Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Clinton has said the current Israeli prime minister is “not the guy” to make a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority.

But Dershowitz disagrees. During an interview on The Steve Malzberg Show Tuesday on Newsmax TV, Dershowitz reminded the former American president that first of all, he doesn’t get to choose.

“President Clinton has to understand Israel is a democracy. He doesn’t get a vote. The people of Israel decide who their prime minister is going to be, and they have decided it’s going to be Netanyahu. He is the guy.

“He’s the guy who’s going to make peace or he’s not going to make peace. He’s going to make it without compromising Israel’s security,” Dershowitz added.

Noting that Netanyahu has a reputation for being tough and for keeping Israel’s security uppermost in his priorities, Dershowitz said, “I have to tell you what kind of peace he’s not going to make. He’s not going to do what [former prime minister Ariel] Sharon did in Gaza.

“He’s not going to unilaterally leave. There is needs to be some continuing military presence and control over the border, particularly with ISIS,” he pointed out.

“One great thing about Israel is they never ask America for a soldier,” Dershowitz said. “They always defend with [their] own soldiers.”

Hamas Attacks Israel with Mortar Shells during ‘Humanitarian Ceasefire’

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Hamas managed to honor the United Nations-sponsored five-hour “humanitarian ceasefire” for a grand total of two hours before attacking Israel with mortar shells. It waited until less than a minute after the end of the ceasefire to stage a massive attack on Israel with more than 50 rockets and missiles from the south to north of Tel Aviv Thursday afternoon.

No serious injuries have been reported, but at least one home in Ashkelon sustained damage. The Iron Dome intercepted several missiles fired at Tel Aviv and surrounding cities, including Kfar Saba to the north.

At noon, two hours after the brief ceasefire was upheld by Israel and Hamas, the terrorist regime hit the Eshkol region in the Western Negev with three mortar shells

Hamas also Hamas executed four civilians for collaborating with Israel during the Protect Edge counter-terrorist campaign that began last week. More than a dozen of others have been arrested and face the same fate.

Foreign leaders have not commented on the executions or commented if they represented a “disproportionate response.”

Hamas followed up the mortar shelling with rocket attacks seconds after the official end of the ceasefire, shooting at Ashkelon, Gaza Belt communities and Be’er Sheva within an hour.

By 6 p.m., the Iron Dome system already was in action over the skies of Tel Aviv.

After the initial attacks, the IDF swiftly responded, bombing terror targets in northern and central Gaza.

Israel has suffered a bad name following the bombing of Gaza beach on Wednesday that had been used by terrorists but where children also were playing until the Air Force combed the area killing at least four minors.

Hamas also suffered PR damage when it was exposed again for using civilian areas for terror. UNRWA discovered weapons in one of its school, as reported here.

Foreign leaders or would-be leaders, ranging from former U.S. President Bill Clinton to Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, castigated Israel, Erdogan told a meeting of Islamic scholars in in Turkey, “Since 1948, we have been witnessing this attempt at systematic genocide every day and every month. But above all we are witnessing this attempt at systematic genocide every Ramadan.”

Clinton, whose Oslo Accords unwittingly created “new Middle East” exactly opposite of what he intended, still is on the soap box preaching that Israel is the reason Hamas attacks.

“I believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu could and should make a comprehensive peace agreement with the Palestinians,” he told an Indian news channel Wednesday.

“Over the long run it is not good for Israel to keep isolating itself from world opinion because of the absence of a viable peace process,” he added. “In the short to medium term, Hamas can inflict terrible public relations damage on Israel by forcing it to kill Palestinian civilians to counter Hamas.”

Did he really say “civilians”? Did he really say Israel might suffer, oy veh, “public relations damage.”

Now we have another reason why the U.S. Constitution prevents a president from running for a third term.

There also are other reasons, such as Barack Obama.

Chelsea Clinton Pregnant with Non-Jewish Child

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Chelsea Clinton, America’s poster child for intermarriage, announced on Thursday that she is pregnant.

Chelsea, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton, married Marc Mezvinsky, in a much publicized ceremony run by a Reform (nebech) rabbi and a Methodist minister, effectively pruning away that 3300 year old Jewish branch of the Mezvinsky family.

Clinton, who heads an interfaith society had previous said, “With all candor, because my husband is Jewish and I’m Christian, and we’re both practicing, it’s something that’s quite close to home.”

Though since her husband married out of the Jewish people, effectively making him the final link in a formerly unbroken Jewish chain, Clinton is certainly using a very open-ended definition of the word “practicing”.

As Rabbi Stav, the head of the moderate, Israeli Orthodox organization, Tzohar, said in November,

“The problem of assimilation among American Jews is not only an American problem, it’s our problem, too. There’s an ocean of ceremonies and an ocean of people eager to conduct ceremonies. Chelsea Clinton married a Jewish guy. I’m not arguing the legitimacy of it, you’re free to think what you want. But do you want me to recognize Chelsea Clinton’s child as a Jew? You want me to recognize the rabbi who officiated at her wedding as a rabbi? Are you trying to push intermarriage through my back door?”

Assimilation is rampant among non-Orthodox Jews in America.

This is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s first grandchild. Congratulations.

The Socks Clinton Conspiracy Theory

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Socks Clinton (March 23, 1989 – February 20, 2009) was the pet cat of U.S. President Bill Clinton’s family during his presidency. An adopted stray cat, he was the only pet of the Clintons during the early years of the administration, and his likeness hosted the children’s version of the White House website. After Clinton left office, Socks moved in with former Clinton secretary Betty Currie and her husband, “owing to continuing conflicts” with the Clintons’ dog Buddy, a Labrador Retriever.

Betty Currie testified that President Clinton had called her in to work on a Sunday, on January 18, 1998, and pointedly said to her, regarding intern Monica Lewinsky and himself, “We were never alone, right?” and other leading questions. Currie’s testimony, added to similar incidents involving other potential witnesses, led to Clinton’s subsequent impeachment charge of obstruction of justice.

I won’t be surprised if Socks was placed in Currie’s home just to monitor her actions. Tuxedos are very smart. And I never believed the story about his not getting along with a Labrador Retriever. I mean, come on, the two most outgoing and friendly cat and dog species – how could they possibly not get along?

Letter Reveals Rav Ovadia Retracted ‘Land for Peace’ Ruling in 2003

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef reversed his famous “Land for Peace” ruling of 1993 after the Palestinian Authority literally exploded in Israel’s face a decade later with large-scale terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings.

The revelation of the letter, seen below, explains Rav Ovadia’s incredibly strong statements in recent sermons, such as one of the most famous ones three years ago when he said of the Palestinian Authority, “All these evil people should perish from this world. God should strike them with a plague, them and these Palestinians.”

In 1993, when the prospect of peace turned into a mantra that mass media used to blind themselves and wishful-thinkers, the idea of Israel’s surrendering Judea, Gaza and Samaria for peace with Yasser Arafat was pushed by U.S. President Bill Clinton.

The Israeli government was split, and the Shas party, which obeyed whatever Rav Ovadia said, withstood arguments from nationalists and kept the Rabin-Peres coalition government alive with his famous ruling in favor of giving up “land for peace” because it is a matter of “pikuach nefesh,” saving the lives of Jews.

After Rav Ovadia died, Israel’s populist but rather ignorant media turned the funeral into a peace festival that obliterated the greatness of the rabbi, who wrote 50 books and who was cited all over the world as one of the greatest Torah sages ever.

The “expert analysts” on Israel radio and in the mass media explained that Rav Ovadia was a great man, but not because of  his brilliant mind that lived and breathed Torah and not because of the Shas party that he founded and turned into a kingmaker in Israeli politics.

“Land for peace” was the reason 800,000 Jews from all sects of Israeli society came to the funeral.

What they did not say is that 10 years after Oslo, during the Second Intifada that also is known as the Oslo War, Rav Ovadia ruled exactly the opposite.

Instead of “land for peace” being an issue to save the lives of Jews, it had become clear that it was a concept that endangered Jews.

Arafat’s “peace,” which murdered more than 1,000 Jews, wounded thousands others and which continues until today under the invisible hand of Mahmoud Abbas, is not the peace Rav Ovadia had in mind.

He wrote, “My dear brothers of Israel, residents of Judea and Samaria:

“It is my intention to make clear my position concerning Judea and Samaria. I have explained more than once since my Halachic ruling, that giving up land for peace has no validity in light of the current situation.

“I intended there be a true peace, in which Jerusalem and its surroundings will be secure in peace and quiet. But now, our eyes see that surrendering our holy land causes a danger to life.

“This is not the peace for which we prayed. Therefore, the Oslo Accords are null and void.”

Rav Ovadia then cited the verse form Psalms that states, “I speak peace and they speak war.”

Just as populist media falsified Rav Ovadia’s ruling, it has turned Jews in Israel and all over the world into victims of ignorant and slanderous reporting of Rav Ovadia’s Saturday night sermons. They took phrases out of contact and without any understanding that the rabbis was speaking the language his constituents understood, which is not the style of the pseudo-sophisticated Ashkenazi elite and certainly not that of the bleeding-heart media.

The Aish HaTorah website once quoted Rav Ovadia with comments that stated much clearer his idea of land for peace.

It quoted Rav Ovadia as saying, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef stated: “If the heads and commanders of the army, together with the government, state that saving of life is involved; that if areas of Israel are not given back, the danger exists of immediate war on the part of our Arab neighbors;

“And if the areas are returned to them, the danger of war will be averted; and that there is a chance of permanent peace; then it seems that according to all opinions it is permitted to return areas of Israel in order to achieve this aim, since nothing is more important than the saving of life.”

The Palestinian Authority war or terror on Israeli in the 1990s, after the Oslo Accords did not satisfy Arafat’s appetite to swallow up Israel, took a breather towards the end of the decade when the Barak government was on the verge of giving Arafat almost everything he wanted.

Abbas Stuns Israel, Implies Surrender of ‘Right of Return’

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas played his ace Thursday and told Israeli leftist Knesset Members he will make the grand concession of giving up a “demand in the future to return to Jaffa, Acre or Haifa.”

The United States will jump on his statement, which in effect concedes the so-called “right of return,” as the greatest goodwill gesture since the deadly Oslo Accords, leaving Israel in a weak and almost defenseless corner in discussions with the Palestinian Authority.

Abbas previously has talked out of both sides of his mouth on the issue of flooding Israel with 5 million foreign Arabs who claim Israel as their home, based on the United Nations designation of “Arab refugees” even though they are three and four generations away from those who fled or were chased out of Israel in previous wars.

He has hinted several times that the demand is not realistic while telling Palestinian Authority Arabs it is a condition for an agreement with Israel.

With the resumed peace talks less than a month old, Abbas has taken the initiative and leaves Israel holding the bag of goodies that it now will be pressured to give up to match Abbas’ ostensible generosity.

Abbas has outfoxed Israel, which is not hard to do considering the deck of cards stacked in favor of the Palestinian Authority.

First, The United States, the European Union, Russia and the entire Muslim world considers Israel an “occupier.” It took Israel 45 years to come up with a much-too-late report of legal experts that Jews have every right to live anywhere they want in Judea and Samaria and all of Jerusalem, including areas occupied by Jordan between the War of Independence in 1948 and the Six-Day War in 1967.

Second, the United Nations has condemned millions of Arabs to be “refugees” by making them the only people in the world whose refugee status carries on from generation to generation.

Third, the United States has allowed the Palestinian Authority to ignore, time and time again, parts of the Oslo Agreements to the point that they are not even worth the paper on which they were signed. The only value of the document was for Yitzchak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, both of whom were crowned Nobel Peace Prize laureates, but that was before Arafat turned his Israeli-supplied rifles on Jews.

“The Palestinian people is ready for and wants peace,” Abbas told Knesset Members from the left-wing Meretz party in Ramallah Thursday. “We will not demand in the future to return to Jaffa, Acre or Haifa. Peace with Israel will be final and binding.”

By giving up the so-called “right of return,” a term that in itself is a perverted play on the Israeli term that for Jews all over the world to become citizens in Israel, Abbas has delivered a knockout punch to Israel.

All of Israel’s demands – security, United Jerusalem, and building for Jews in areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority – now will be seen as obstacles to peace.

Abbas has proven himself to be very clever, which is not very difficult to do considering the universal anti-Israel sentiment.

Ever since he was elected to take over from Arafat in the first and only election, Abbas shunned Arafat’s kefiyeh and pistol on the hip and globetrotted with a suit and tie.

He painstakingly drummed up international support, and last year he cashed in his chips by thumbing his nose at the United States, circumventing direct talks that had not existed since 2010, and going to the United Nations General Assembly for a non-binding recognition as a country based on all of its political and territorial demands.

His meeting on Thursday with Meretz MKs takes the direct discussions with Israel out of the realm of secret talks. He has been making noise the past several days that the discussions are not going anywhere.

The Arab world’s demand to flood Israeli with foreign Arabs, as formulated in the Saudi Peace Initiative of 2002, has been considered as a ploy to end Israel as a Jewish state.

It also has been assumed that the Arab world would not agree to give up the condition, but it is not coincidental that Abbas flew to Saudi Arabia last week.

Abbas’ statements that were reported Thursday night will make him out to be a partner for peace. Israel has made hundreds of concessions over the years, but they now are forgotten and are useless in the diplomatic war that Abbas is winning.
