EXPOSED: EU to Target Israeli Politicians and Sovereignty

Monday, November 17th, 2014

The “secret” document which Haaretz has obtained from, and is promoting for, the European Union working group apparently tasked with denying the Jewish State its self-determination and its capacity for self-protection, has now been released in its full glory.

The idea that such a document could be woven together with – as is contended by Haaretz – the support of all the leadership of the EU’s 28 member states is nothing short of a global stink bomb.

If Haaretz is to be believed, the EU has devised a series of punishments for the Jewish state designed to strip the nation of its ability to operate as an independent, democratic nation.

Central among the EU’s strategies is their effort to deny Israeli voters the right to choose political leaders they approve of. Instead, the EU is proposing that they will chose Israel’s leaders, by “supporting” the ones they like and refusing to conduct international relations with those they don’t like – even if the hated ones happen to be Israel’s Foreign Minister, or its Ambassadors to various countries.

The fact that official pronouncements of Hamas and Fatah proclaim Jew-hatred with a full throat; that they explicitly call for the complete destruction of Israel (a member state of the United Nations, even now); and the murder of every Jew in the world – hardly rates notice.

Instead, Israel is now to be punished by Europe for refusing to negotiate with people who have made clear their goal of the destruction of the Jews.

Before getting to the additional implements (see earlier article on the first tranche) of torture the EU will contemplate applying to Israel, new information comes courtesy of more anonymous “senior EU diplomats.” Those cowards want their scribe to make sure everyone knows that the list of punishments being drawn up was not done so only at the request of the few standard haters of Israel.

No, apparently nearly the entire EU is so furious with Israel for refusing to commit self-vivisection, they all want to teach Israel some lessons it won’t forget.

Several states, including some that are considered great friends of Israel, are the ones who conceived the move and are now hiding behind the EU’s foreign service so that it can act as the bad cop.

The EU diplomats claim the mandate was received from the “political echelon of all 28 member states. Further quotes from those whispering in the ears of Haaretz:

This is a sign that a great deal of anger and frustration exist in the member states. In recent months there were meetings of European foreign ministers in which ministers, who are considered extremely close to Israel, spoke in the most critical way against the policies of Netanyahu’s government.

And then comes the direct threat:

“The fact is that there is an agreement among all 28 member countries of the European Union to discuss measures against Israel, and that is what should worry the government in Jerusalem and the Israeli public,” they said. “This paper will be handed over to the political echelon in Europe, which will decide which actions, if at all, to take.”

DIPLOMATIC EMASCULATION OF ISRAELI LEADERSHIP IS IN THE CARDS

In particular the EU member states, according to Haaretz, are prepared to take certain actions which are designed to castrate those Israeli politicians who continue responding to their own constituencies rather than the orders sent from Brussels.

For example, at least one of the sticks the EU will consider raising against Israel includes freezing out the leadership of Habayit Heyudi, such as Naftali Bennett and Uri Ariel, and even Israel’s President Ruby Rivlin, along with any “settler leaders” who do not support the (immediate) creation of a Palestinian state carved out of Israel

Public Security Ministers Threatens to Bar MKs from Temple Mount

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch told Israeli television Wednesday that he will prohibit Knesset Members from visiting the Temple Mount if he thinks doing so will endanger the public, meaning that it will anger the Arab Muslims who endanger public security.

In response, the spokesman for Housing Minister Uri Ariel, a frequent visitor to the Temple Mount, told The Jewish Press, “It won’t happen. Aharonovitch has brought up the idea before, and it is just political propaganda.”

He added that if Aharonovitch, a member of the Yisrael Beitenu party, would think about what will happen to the coalition government if he is serious about such a drastic move.

If visits by MKs “may lead to riots, I will not allow them to go,” he told Channel 1.

That is how Aharonovitch keep the public order. Don’t let the Jews “make trouble” and the Arabs won’t make trouble.

And once the Arabs understand that, Aharonovitch will have to start maintaining public security by issuing one-way tickets for Jews to leave the country

Before that happens, he has a better idea – using magnometers to screen Arabs before they enter the site.

It is not such a new concept. They were used until the intifada began to take a brief recess in the late 1990s when then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak was ready to hand over almost all of Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem to Yasser Arafat.

Months after the magnometers were removed. The Oslo War, or Second Intifada, broke out, but no Public Security minister thought that maybe putting them back into use would keep out terrorists.

It took nearly three weeks after the attempted murder of Temple activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick for Aharonovitch to wake up and decide to use magnometers again.

Of course using them might make Arabs anger.

Rabbi Glick, whose medical condition has improved to the point where doctors report his life no longer is in danger, will undoubtedly wasn’t to thank God for his remarkable recovery by ascending the Temple Mount.

But that might incite riots.

Will Aharonovitch elevate Rabbi Glick to the status of Knesset Member and tell him to go home?

Better yet, perhaps Aharonovitch will go home.

Liberman and Ariel Compare Recent Events

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Avigdor Liberman (L) speaks with Israel’s Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel during a cornerstone laying ceremony for a new Synagogue in the community of Nokdim in Eastern Gush Etzion, on October 23, 2014.

Nokdim is Liberman’s home town.

This is what we think they spoke about.

Police Lock Arab Rioters inside Al Aqsa Mosque

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Jerusalem police locked dozens of masked Arab rioters inside the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount Wednesday morning after they attacked Jewish visitors and police with firecrackers, bottles and large blocks.

Several arrests are expected, but the first person to be detained was a Jew who was suspected of “disrupting the public order” by praying on the Temple Mount.

The Arabs were well-prepared to violently attack police, and their “green light” was a visit by the Mughrabi (Rambam) Gate by Housing Minister Uri Ariel of the Jewish Home party. He vowed that the Third Temple will be built.

The rioters immediately attacked at the same time that Public Interior Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch was visiting the holy site. He bragged on Wednesday how the number of rock-throwing attacks has declined by one-third and that firebombing is almost non-existent. Aharonovitch praised police, as if they were responsible for the decline, which more likely can be attributed to the end, for the time being, of the war against terror in Gaza.

Four police officers were treated for wounds suffered on the Temple Mount. Faced with a massive barrage of blocks being thrown in their faces and firecrackers hurled at them, policemen managed to direct rioters inside the Al Qaeda Aqsa mosque before chaining it for several hours

Visits to the Temple Mount by Jews and foreigners were banned during the riots.

Rock-throwing continued in Jewish area in eastern Jerusalem, and police arrested a non-year-old Arab for hurling rocks at Jews. The boy was turned over to his parents, for whatever that is worth, but can you imagine what police would do to a nine-year-old boy and his parents if he were caught throwing rocks at Arabs? Don’t try, because you don’t want to start Rosh HaShanah that way.

MK Ariel: Unity Zionist Government Now

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) called on Israeli politicians to set their political considerations aside and to create a national Zionist government to ensure the security and spirits of the nation. Ariel called on government ministers to focus on what Israel needs at the current time – an end to infighting and argument – and not on individual or party politics.

Housing Minister Ariel: Words Versus Facts on the Ground

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Whom are we to believe? Housing Minister Uri Ariel or the regional heads of Judea and Samaria?

Poster  I photographed at Tzomet (Junction) Shiloh signed by Judea-Samaria regional heads claiming a second Netanyahu building freeze is in effect at present.

Housing (Construction) Minister Uri Ariel of the NRP aka Jewish Home Party, who campaigned that in the cabinet/coalition he and his party head Naftali Bennett could best guarantee the growth and building of yishuvim, is quoted saying:

“There will be no more freezes, we will not accept delays and restrictions in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and we will continue to build in all parts of our country,” said Ariel. “Jerusalem will not be divided again. Between the Jordan and the sea there will be only one state, and that is the State of Israel.”

But facts on the ground are the opposite according to the signers of this poster.

Hahakpa’ah ha shniya shel Netanyahu zeh chonek otanu.The second building freeze of Netanyahu, it’s choking us.

That’s what is written on black on the poster bottom. It is signed by those who head the various regions, counties, Jewish cities in Judea and Samaria.

As I have written before, there is still a waiting list to get into many yishuvim, such as Shiloh, because of the severe housing shortage. In recent years there has been a demand for multifamily homes for various reasons. One is that they can be less expensive than single-family homes and the other is that people are now building rental apartments or granny apartments on their houses which quite often use the basement, making the house three, rather than two stories, which necessitates a change in zoning which isn’t granted. Another reason is that some of the yishuvim are now extremely limited in available land for building new homes. When yishuvim were first built, the norm was to only build single family homes, and the standard building limit was two stories in many locations, such as Shiloh. Changing this basic regulation has proven very complicated for many people and communities.

As I’ve written many times before, cabinet/coalition members of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government do not have much power. He doesn’t poll them before making policy decisions. They are more like window-dressing and have to pledge to support his government to be accepted in the coalition. Building in Judea and Samaria to meet its needs won’t happen with Bibi’s government still trying to give the Arabs our Land to make an Arab terror state, aka Palestine.

Today is Jerusalem Day, so expect to hear all sorts of great speeches, but the truth is that we (the State of Israel) are still not sovereign in the Land of Israel and even in Jerusalem.
