I am Shelly Dadon

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

I am Shelly Dadon.  I was murdered only because I was Jewish.  A future Israeli government will release my murderers for the chance to sit and talk ‘peace’ with the Palestinian Arabs and enable them to murder more Israeli Jews.

19-year-old Shelly Dadon’s last words to her cousin were “there is someone scary here.  I am being strangled.”  From Shelly’s Hebrew it was inferred that a woman terrorist was strangling her.  Then, it appears, she was repeatedly stabbed to death. Over 2,000 Israelis in her home town of Afula came out to demonstrate for her.

And, Israeli Minister of Justice Tzipi Livni wants to release more terrorists so she can sit with my murderers’ bosses.

 

Livni has Shelly Dadon’s blood on her hands.

The rabbi burying Shelly Dadon said she was “murdered only because she was Jewish.”  Thousands of Israelis Jews have been murdered since the messianic Peace Cultists signed the Oslo “Peace” Accords only because they were Jewish.  16-year-old Daniel Viflic was on a yellow school bus near Gaza when Hamas terrorists fired an anti-tank missile into his school bus.  Daniel Viflic is dead and buried and forgotten by most of us. 

Isaac Herzog, the head of Labor, wants to accede to virtually all of Abbas’ demands to release as many terrorist prisoners that he possibly can.

Doesn’t Prime Minister Netanyahu understand that by not executing Arab terrorist murderers, putting them in comfy jails, with internet, paying Abbas hundreds of millions of dollars a month so he can pay the terrorists in Israeli jails, allowing them to smuggle out their sperm, and then allowing them to be released to wild celebrations of heroism, Israel has validated and sanctified the Palestinian narrative that they are Freedom Fighters – and that the Arab terror narrative will win. 

 

Doesn’t Prime Minister Netanyahu understand that for any would-be Palestinian Arab terrorist, there is only upside and no down-side to their wanton slaughter of Israeli Jews only because they are Jewish?  

 

Netanyahu has Shelly Dadon’s blood on his hands.

I am Shelly Dadon. I was murdered only because I was Jewish.  Netanyahu will one day release my murderers, enabling the murder of more Jews.

 

Doesn’t Defense Minister Ya’alon understand that if Israel has to pay the Palestinians’ price of Palestinian Arab terrorist murderers for the “right” to even sit down with the Palestinian Authority in peace talks, that this is not “strategic” this is “suicidal.”  Under Ya’alon’s theory that the terrorist murders’ releases were “strategic,” what exactly does Israel expect to result from the peace talks? 

 

Worse, you have perversely given the terrorists an incentive to kill more Israelis.  Because, the murderers know Israel will be forced to release them for merely to chance to sit with Abbas’ “peace” team. 

 

Ya’alon has Shelly’s Dadon’s blood on his hands.

Price Tag Hypocrisy

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Suddenly, there is a new threat to world peace and stability. There has arisen a diabolical force, so sly, so threatening, so innately evil as to challenge the very foundations of Western Civilization.

This despicable, unspeakable force moves with the cunning of a cat, strikes with the force of the Mongol Hordes and, when the rest of the world is naively asleep, stealthily arrives to…

Spray Paint the Side of a Building!!!!!!!!…or even worse, unbelievably worse, to…

Slash Tires!!!!!!

Have we perhaps lost some perspective here, or is the hysteria about Price Tag attacks meant very much to be a straw man for a larger issue, against a more serious enemy.

First things first. I am not excusing Price Tag attacks. They are the criminal acts of hooligans.

But let’s also apply some perspective. Spraying a wall with paint is not in the same league as spraying a car with bullets. Slashing a tire does not quite equate to slashing a throat.

But to see the reactions of many on the Left there is no difference. Worse yet, those who find justification for the actions of Arabs and Palestinians feel no compunction in labeling these perpetrators “terrorists” or even, to quote Amos Oz, “ a monster that needs to be called what it is: Hebrew neo-Nazi groups.”

Wow. Isn’t that just a wee bit…extreme?

And it is that lack of perspective that is so telling, telling us more about the labeler than the labeled.

Why is there such a double standard for the actions of supposedly Jewish actors creating disgusting mischief – but mischief mind you – and the murderous or at the least violent-to-the-person acts of identified Arabs?

Why are some so quick to whip out their college sociology textbooks, citing the frustrations of living under “the Occupation” while never giving a thought to the extenuating circumstance of having your community ripped down or your neighbors assaulted?

This isn’t even moral equivalence, one of the great foolish indulgences of the politically correct crowd. That’s because there is no equivalence. The Arab marauders are oppressed and frustrated youth, or even freedom fighters, and the allegedly Jewish hooligans are “neo-Nazis.”

What’s even more fascinating is that the Jewish perpetrators have been tried and convicted before they have even identified. We don’t even know or care who they are, or why they did what they did. They are the utterly deplorable, the lowest of the low – monsters, as Oz would have it.

(By the way, if you were an astute Palestinian Arab trying to stick a finger in the Israeli eye, wouldn’t you be tempted to spray paint “tag mahir” on the side of a building? It gets a Pavlovian reaction in the Israeli media every time.)

So what is really going on here? I think there are at least few aspects to this, all related and each depressing in its own right. For one thing, the price tag perpetrators (PTPs) have become the symbol by which the Left can hate the “Settler” movement (to use the coded term that carries the negative connotation of occupiers), and also all Settlers. They are not human, literally, nor from the rabid language used to describe them, metaphorically.

The Useful Idiot of the Year, Tzipi Livni has managed to turn PTPs into a great security threat, and it is perhaps but a matter of time before Martin Indyk and John Kerry will lay the failure of recent talks on the doorstep of the PTPs.

For another, the extreme reaction to the PTPs clearly exposes the larger world view of the accusers. Ms. Livni, for example, has never uttered condemnations of the murderous actions of Arabs, yet she sees war crime material in the actions of the PTPs.

Yesh Atid Blocks Israel’s ’No Early Release for Terrorists’ Bill

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Yesh Atid minister Yaakov Perry appealed a new law preventing the premature release of terrorist inmates from prison on Monday night, effectively blocking the measure.

The bill amends one of the Basic Laws of Israel, formulated in the 1960s, that allows the president to pardon terrorists under certain conditions. It was passed Sunday by the Ministerial Legislative Committee – but the move by the Science and Technology Minister stops the law from going to the Knesset plenum for its first reading.

Instead, it will go to the full Cabinet for a vote on Sunday.

Jailed terrorists — particularly the ones who are serving life sentences for multiple murders of Israeli citizens in terror attacks — are often used as bargaining chips by Arab nations and terror groups in talks with the State of Israel.

IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, kidnapped in a cross-border raid near the Gaza border by three Hamas-affiliated terrorist groups in 2006, was held hostage by Hamas in Gaza. His freedom and safe return was purchased after more than five years only at the cost of releasing more than a thousand Arab terrorist inmates from Israeli prisons — many of whom immediately resumed their activities against the Jewish State.

There are many who believe that if the option of early release for terrorist prisoners — “prisoner swaps” — was not available, terror groups with whom Israel deals would no longer find benefit in kidnapping Israeli hostages, and therefore would cease such activities.

Perry’s move was immediately condemned by lawmakers from the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, one of the two sponsors of the bill.

Bayit Yehudi MK Ayelet Shaked, who proposed the measure together with MK David Tzur – against the objections of his own Hatnua party’s chairperson, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni – expressed outrage over Perry’s appeal.

“Tonight the truth was revealed that small politics are stronger than the blood of Israeli citizens,” Shaked told media.

“Minister Perry in the past expressed his support for the law, both to me and to my partner MK David Tzur, so his appeal is puzzling… How can the former head of the Shin Bet support releasing murderers?”

Economics Minister and Bayit Yehudi chairperson Naftali Bennett slammed the move, calling it a “mark of disgrace” on the entire Yesh Atid political party.

“Every day that this law is delayed human life is in danger,” Bennett underlined. “We will use all the tools at our disposal, including burying laws proposed by Yesh Atid, until this law is passed.

“I do not have, nor will I have any tolerance and patience for political games at the expense of laws that are essential for the security of Israeli citizens.”

Minister Warns ‘Don’t Confuse ‘Price Tag’ Vandalism with Terrorism

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) came out strongly Wednesday evening against lawmakers claiming that ‘price tag’ vandalism attacks were tantamount to terrorism.

The minister demanded at the emergency meeting that Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch prove how ‘price tag’ attacks meet the definition of ‘terrorism.’

Ministers Livni and Aharonovitch had earlier Wednesday vowed a crackdown on the price tag attacks, referring to them as “terrorism.”

“Price tag” is something that is absolutely forbidden and should be not allowed to take root anywhere in our country,” Ariel said. “The criminals must be brought to justice,” he continued, but “terrorism is murder and [involves] intent to kill by throwing rocks, shooting, firebombing, car bombs and more.”

There is a difference, he said, and “the repeated failure of the police and Shin Bet to bring the perpetrators to justice does not turn these illegal acts into terrorism.”

Ariel called on lawmakers to clearly differentiate between murderous intent, and serious hate crimes that involve spray-painted graffiti and slashed tires.

Kerry Regrets Using ‘A’ Word, Which He Also Claims He Did Not Use

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

After several days of heated debate over Secretary of State John Kerry’s statements that Israel will become an Apartheid State unless it not only permits the creation of a Palestinian State, but does so under a timetable set by the United States, made at the Trilateral Commission meeting on Friday, April 25, the State Department issued a statement late on Monday. The statement was an effort to clarify the situation.

What Monday’s statement says is that Kerry loves the Jewish State – everyone who knows him knows that. And not only does Kerry love Israel, but he – unlike those rogues who are now calling on him to resign or be fired or face a phalanx of paddles – has actually worked to help Israel save itself from its elected leader, er, no, save itself from those evil settlers, no, that’s not right, darn it, he’s worked hard to facilitate a Two State Solution in order to secure peace in the region at some point during his tenure.

And although Kerry may have used the words Apartheid State to depict what Israel will become unless it listens to Papa John, he now insists he neither believes nor has he ever said that Israel is now or intends to become an Apartheid State. Despite his claim that he did not use variations of the term, Kerry nevertheless regrets using the word “apartheid” at all in relation to Israel because “it’s a word best left out of the debate” by Americans.

What Kerry did not say that he did not say is that Israel will become an Apartheid State unless it follows the path chosen for it by the U.S. and the Europeans. And, of course, he felt compelled to blurt out a pouting, “but they said it!” Kerry specifically referenced that non-dynamic duo of losers Tzipi Livni and Ehud Barak and the singular crook and about to be jailbird Ehud Olmert, the three (failed) Israeli politicians who have also suggested, as Kerry admits by omission he did, that Israel will become an Apartheid State unless it embraces his preferred Two State Solution on his preferred timetable.

Whether or not Monday’s statement will smooth over the ruffled feathers of those who spoke out against Kerry’s use of the offensive epithet in connection to Israel will provide fodder for tomorrow’s news cycle.

This is the full statement from Secretary Kerry:

On Support for Israel

For more than thirty years in the United States Senate, I didn’t just speak words in support of Israel, I walked the walk when it came time to vote and when it came time to fight. As Secretary of State, I have spent countless hours working with Prime Minister Netanyahu and Justice Minister Livni because I believe in the kind of future that Israel not only wants, but Israel deserves. I want to see a two state solution that results in a secure Jewish state and a prosperous Palestinian state, and I’ve actually worked for it.

I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes, so I want to be crystal clear about what I believe and what I don’t believe.

First, Israel is a vibrant democracy and I do not believe, nor have I ever stated, publicly or privately, that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that without a shred of doubt.

Second, I have been around long enough to also know the power of words to create a misimpression, even when unintentional, and if I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two state solution. In the long term, a unitary, binational state cannot be the democratic Jewish state that Israel deserves or the prosperous state with full rights that the Palestinian people deserve. That’s what I said, and it’s also what Prime Minister Netanyahu has said. While Justice Minister Livni, former Prime Ministers Barak and Ohlmert have all invoked the specter of apartheid to underscore the dangers of a unitary state for the future, it is a word best left out of the debate here at home.

Israel, PLO ‘Talk’ Over Sanctions, Not Status

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Israeli and Palestinian Authority negotiators are warning each other over what will happen if each walks away from the negotiating table — and neither is talking about the subject for which they were brought to the table.

Israel has warned the PA that if the entity does not cease its violations of an agreement to refrain from joining international treaties and organizations, the Jewish State will respond with more unilateral actions of its own.

And the Palestinian Authority negotiators are responding that they just don’t care — they will simply sign more international treaties and conventions, including one giving the entity membership at the International Criminal Court in The Hague — and establish recognition for their entity as a new country, albeit one without recognized, negotiated borders, that way.

Both are adroitly avoiding the real reason they are sitting there: how to wrestle with the knotty problem of finding a solution to an unsolvable crisis — a looming deadline for talks on an issue that cannot be solved to anyone’s satisfaction by Western standards. The Palestinian Authority is actually TWO entities, not one: Gaza, run by Hamas, and Ramallah-controlled areas of Judea & Samaria. Worse, all of these populations have now been effectively brainwashed into thorough hatred of Jews and Israel — fed on a daily diet of media incitement sponsored by the PA government and the surrounding Arab nations, in total violation of the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords.

There is no way to dial that back, even if they wanted to — and perhaps some of the PA leaders do — but most of them would not even if they could. The question now is how to keep this fiasco from blowing up in everyone’s faces while keeping American mediators — who tend to complicate the picture and only make things worse — at bay.

But at least Israelis and PA negotiators are meeting — until this point, the Americans have been at the table for every single encounter since November, and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, whose presence was required, has not been.

The PA negotiators allegedly refused to come to the table without them; but one has only to read the autobiographies of the founders of Israel to see what was going on in negotiations during prior wars to wonder what the real story is behind this account as well. What is certain is that the media is only hearing part of the tale — and the public even less.

Regardless, the PA move is intended to create a de facto recognition of the entity as an independent sovereign nation by evading the Oslo Accords. The 1993 agreement signed by the late PLO chairman Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin require the PA to negotiate a final status agreement with Israel. It includes a requirement for the PA to abandon terror and negotiate final borders, among other issues.

The Israeli sanctions have already begun. Jerusalem has begun to deduct sums from taxes it collects each month – some $110 million — on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. The money will be used to pay down the massive debt the PA owes to Israel for the electricity it receives, use of Israeli hospitals and provision of specialized medical care. The PA owes Israel nearly half a billion shekels. The PA is screaming over the reduction of the funds because the taxes Israel collects and transfers to its coffers each month represent nearly two-thirds of its income.

Nevertheless, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official Nabil Shaath brushed aside the Israeli threat when speaking with reporters on Sunday after a meeting with a German delegation in the Samaria-based PA capital of Ramallah. The move, he said, “will not stop us from joining international treaties and conventions,” according to the PA news agency WAFA.

Ron Pundak, Active in Many Failed Peace Initiatives, Dead at 59

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Ron Pundak, who was the executive director of the Peres Center for Peace, an architect of the Oslo Accords, and an active participant in the Geneva Initiative, died from cancer on Friday. Pundak was 59 years old.

Pundak is being widely lauded as a great peace activist and a visionary.

Israel’s President Shimon Peres said that Pundak, was a warrior, a man of values and an intellectual.

“He [Pundak] dedicated his whole life for the achievement of peace with our neighbors. He was willing to do anything for peace, sacrifice his life and dedicated each and every moment of his life to it. Ron was a family man, a great soul and he will be missed,” Peres said.

Israeli politician Tzipi Livni said: “There are war heroes but Ron was hero of peace. He was a Zionist who believed in peace and was not deterred by extremists, cynics and the hopeless.”

However, the Oslo Accords and the Geneva Initiative have both resulted in great harm to Israel.

And at the J Street Conference in 2011, Ron Pundak told the audience something to which they responded with thunderous applause.

“Israel,” Pundak said, “can live with a nuclear Iran and it must not base its policies on a worst-case scenario.”

Funeral arrangements had not yet been made before Shabbat.
