Peres, Sharon, Barak, Star in Campaign for Ma’ale Adumim Sovereignty

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy: Israel’s late ninth president, Shimon Peres, will star posthumously in a giant campaign promoting the annexation of Ma’ale Adumim, a town just four miles east of Jerusalem. Established in the early 1970s as an IDF post, Ma’ale Adumim received its status as a city in 1991, and today has close to 40,000 residents. Its unique location means that, should it receive Israeli sovereignty, the Jewish urban sprawl of Ma’ale Adumim and Jerusalem would forever thwart Arab hopes of establishing a geographically contiguous Palestinian State.

The new campaign is banking on the fact that all of Israel’s past mainstream politicians have supported the settlement enterprise, even if some of them later became its sworn enemies. And so, under the slogan “Continuing in their Path,” the campaign banners quote Shimon Peres’ statement: “The development of Ma’ale Adumim will secure the defenses of Jerusalem”; late prime minister and destroyer of Jewish Gaza Ariel Sharon: “Ma’ale Adumim will be built as part of the State of Israel for eternity”; settlements foe and former prime minister, Ehud Barak: “Everything you build in Ma’ale Adumim remains part of the State of Israel forever, period”; and the destroyer of the Jewish city of Yamit, the late Menachem Begin: “I bless the establishment of Ma’ale Adumim. The only viable option is our rule in Judea and Samaria.”

The intentional irony of the campaign, targeting an Israeli Jewish public out of which a consistent 80% have been telling pollsters they support imposing Israeli sovereignty on Ma’ale Adumim, with or without a peace agreement, was not lost on Israel’s combative left. MK Michal Rozin (Meretz) said Saturday night that “usurping the character and works of the late Shimon peres such a short time after his death to promote Greater Israel is a disgrace. This is a cynical use of the Israeli consensus to destroy the Zionist dream.”

The campaign will feature giant billboards at the entrance to Jerusalem and around the Knesset, as well as newspaper ads, a Facebook page called “Sovereignty in Ma’ale Adumim,” and a website named Ribonut (Sovereignty).

Maale Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel said the campaign “expresses the clear position of the majority of the people who want to continue the Zionist vision and the settlement enterprise. It’s been 50 years since the city of Jerusalem was united and we returned to our historic homeland regions. All the governments of Israel have developed the area and we wish to continue the path of the leaders of Israel and the Zionist movement and impose Israeli sovereignty on the city of Ma’ale Adumim. This is how we will fulfill the vision of all our past prime ministers, both from the left and from the right, since the city’s inception.”

MK Amsalem to Propose that Prime Ministers Be Immune from Prosecution for Minor Offenses

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

By Ilana Messika/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – Chairman of the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee MK David “Dudi” Amsalem (Likud) declared on Tuesday that he intends to propose a new bill during the winter session which would prohibit criminal investigation of the prime minister for minor offenses that would carry less than a six-month prison sentence.

“Being the prime minister of Israel is the most important job in the country,” wrote MK Amsalem in a Facebook post. “He cannot be busied with investigations on a daily basis. There has not been one prime minister in the last thirty years that has not been involved in investigations—from Rabin and his wife’s Dollar Account affair to Barak and the NGOs to Sharon’s Greek island, Olmert and his travels, Netanyahu and the gifts and bottles, and so on.”

The proposal also follow on the heels of the recent investigation opened against Prime Minister Netanyahu who allegedly approached an advertising office in 2007 with the aim of purchasing advertising space in the Arab press for his political war against former Labor leader Ehud Barak.

The Israel Police also recently began probing allegations that the prime minister’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, had accepted expensive gifts as part of a greater corruption scheme.

“Nevertheless, since it would be inappropriate for the prime minister not to answer for those crimes, it is proposed that the duration of the rest of his term not be counted within the period of the statute of limitations and it will as such be permitted to prosecute him on the matter after his term ends.”

According to the Likud, the new law would not be applicable retroactively, meaning that it would have no effect on the investigations currently being conducted against Prime Minister Netanyahu. As such, Netanyahu’s son, Yair, is soon to be called to testify to the police about the allegations against his father.

The initiative sparked great controversy within the political arena. “No one is above the law,” said Zionist Union MK Tzipi Livni. “Investigations are not detrimental to the public, but to its benefit, as it is deserving of an immaculate leadership. An honest prime minister would reject such a proposal.”

Meretz MK Zahava Galon also criticized the bill, claiming that “MK Amsalem’s proposal will turn the Prime Minister’s Office into a sanctuary for criminals.” Yesh Atid MK Karin Elharar sarcastically suggested to “just crown him Sultan.”

Members of the Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee told TPS that they did not wish to comment on the matter at present.

Sarona? Sharona? Let’s Set the Record Straight

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

The murderous terrorist attack on innocent civilians at a café in a Tel Aviv shopping area Wednesday night introduced some linguistic confusion as to the name of the area: the official name of the enormous indoor food market is “Sarona,” but many Hebrew speaking reporters opted for “Sharona” — which sounds like the coastline region of the Sharon — only to be told by their editors to change it to the official name which has no meaning at all in Hebrew or any other language.

Popular linguist Avshalom Kor on Thursday morning offered an explanation, siding with the reporters and chiding their editors. The following is his step-by-step argument, which we promise actually delivers a definitive, satisfying answer in the end:

1. European languages don’t have a letter to represent the Sh sound. English uses Sh, French does Ch, and German Sch. This is why the European Greeks, when they arrived in Israel, turned Shimon into Simon, Shmuel into Samuel, and Shimshon into Simpson.

2. The 1871 German Templer founders of the colony outside Jaffa which eventually became Tel Aviv gave it the name Sharona, after the Sharon region (which back then included the Jaffa area). Sharon is an ancient Semitic word meaning forest (up until the 19th century the Sharon valley was covered with a thick forest, which the Turks cut down to fuel their trains). The German settlers wrote the name Sharon as “Saron” because when an S appears at the beginning of a German word or name it is pronounced as Sh (Stuttgart, Staat), or Z. Indeed, the Templers (who later became dedicated Nazis) pronounced the name of their colony as Zarona.

3. The Brits, who took over in 1917, pronounced Sarona as Sarona, simple, effective, and as is often the case in British pronunciation of foreign names, utterly wrong (for an illustration, click the sound icon under the name Gaza in Arabic in GoogleTranslate — this is what the name of the city really is). Try the same with Afghanistan

In conclusion, the name of the neighborhood, which today straddles Kaplan Street in Tel Aviv, a stone’s throw away from the defense ministry and IDF command compound, has always been Sharona, the name Sarona is a mistake, no such word exists in the Hebrew language and it’s time the owners of the compound changed it to its real version.

Another Ambush in Jerusalem as Media Ignores ‘Silent Intifada’

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Arab rioters attacked Jewish motorists in eastern Jerusalem Tuesday night in what has become a “silent intifada” thanks to establishment media’s generally ignoring frequent violence.

Arab rioters attacked several cars whose occupants were on their way on the eve of Hoshana Raba, the last day of Sukkot, to learn Torah at the “Beit HaHoshen,” in the heart of a hostile and almost entirely Arab neighborhood above Wadi Joz in eastern Jerusalem.

Shuki Set wrote on the Rotter.net website that he and his son were driving to Beit HaHoshen when they got stuck in a traffic jam, a ready-made setting for Arab violence.

“Arabs suddenly struck our car with rocks at point-blank range,” he wrote. “The kicked the car and smashed the side mirrors, but there was nowhere to flee. We simply stood there like sitting ducks, hoping we would not be physically harmed.

“Suddenly, one of the rioters heaved a huge rock and smashed the back window.”

The driver barely was able to escape the ambush, and he called the police. He discovered that there were other families who were on their way to learn and who also were attacked.

“This Jerusalem!” he wrote. [It is] two minutes from Hebrew University. Where are the police” Where are the authorities?

“I never felt so ashamed and helpless in my life.

“I hope the government will start to exercise its sovereignty over our capital. If we don’t stop this erosion in Beit Hanina, the rioters will get to the Mount of Olives and then Rehavia,” an upscale neighborhood near downtown Jerusalem.

We have news for Shuki. Arab attacks on Jews traveling to and from the Mount of Olives as well as the nearby Maaleh Zeitim neighborhood are almost daily events.

The establishment rarely report on them.

Why?

Because their agenda is that “United Jerusalem” includes Ramot and Gilo, maybe Talpiot, Pisgat Ze’ev and French Hill, but does not include anywhere else where Jews live in eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem.

The media silence is somewhat reminiscent of the Arab violence in Gush Katif from the 1990s until the day in the summer of 2005 that the Sharon administration expelled 9,000 Jews from Gaza and withdrew the entire military, down to the last soldier.

The establishment newspapers, website and TV and radio stations only reported violence when someone was killed or badly injured, and they twisted the reportage to push their agenda that things would be a lot more peaceful if the Jews simply would go away.

Even the media snobs in Tel Aviv know today that the result was they also had to hide in bomb shelters to protect themselves from missiles fired in Gaza.

If Israel’s media and political leaders really had learned the lesson, they would not ignore the daily violence in eastern Jerusalem that, thanks to the self-muzzling, has become a “silent intifada.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last week finally broke the silence and ordered police to crack down on Arab attackers “to ensure the safety of Jerusalem.”

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat occasionally stands up and makes a nice speech that the police are not doing enough to protect Jews in eastern Jerusalem.

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, arguably one of the worst ministers ever to hold the portfolio, insists that his office has zero tolerance towards the rioters” and that hundreds of arrests have been carried out.

Arrests usually end up in in the revolving door, but he often claims violence is on the decrease. He usually does so at almost the same time rioters prove him wrong.

The attitude of the establishment media was best-expressed in a recent editorial in Haaretz, the left-wing bastion to which foreign media turn for their “knowledge” of Israel.
