Herzog-Livni ‘Zionist Camp’ Talked with Arab MK Tibi about Coalition

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

The merged party that brought together Labor and Tzipi Livni under the banner of the “Zionist Camp” has talked with Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi about a possible coalition government.

The fact that Labor party chairman Yitzchak Herzog would even agree to talk with an anti-Zionist Arab MKs such as Tibi is only another page in Herzog-Livni’s new book to prove once again that “you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

It is not clear whether Herzog approached Arab political leaders or vice-versa, but both sides agree there were talks on the possibility of Arab parties breaking the taboo against joining a Jewish-dominated coalition in the Knesset.

Channel 10 reported that it was Herzog who took the initiative, and he confirmed there were contacts but insisted that it was MK Tibi who approached him.

Remember, Herzog and Livni merged their two parties under the clever slogan of the “Zionist Camp,” just in case anything thinks that expelling hundreds of thousands of Jews from Judea and Samira is not Zionistic.

The theory is that it is better for Jews to be a majority in “Auschwitz Borders,” as termed by former Labor party official and Ambassador to the United Nations Abba Eban, than to be “surrounded by Arabs.” By the way, this is exactly the situation of the Jews in Netanya and Hadera, except that they are not surrounded by Arabs on all sides because they have the Mediterranean Sea to protect them on the west.

And who is Ahmed Tibi, with whom Herzog talked about a future coalition with the “Zionist Camp”?

He was elected to the Knesset in 1999 after serving as an adviser to Yasser Arafat. As a Knesset Member, he supported terror under the euphemism of the “intifada.”

Tibi opposes Israel being a Jewish state, which he calls “racist.”

He backs abolishing the Law of Return that allows Jews all over the world to move to Israel as citizens, but he backs the so-called Arab “right of return” for third, fourth fifth and six-generation Arabs living in foreign countries but classified as “refugees” by the United Nations because their great-great-great–great grandparents lived in Israel once upon a time.

Tibi wants to ban the HaTikvah national anthem and the blue and white Jewish flag bearing the Star of David.

In a radio interview last July where he refused to use the word ‘terrorists’ regarding the murderers of three yeshiva youth,  Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Sha’ar and Eyal Yifrah. Tibi blamed “the government of Israel, Naftali Bennett and the rabbis who incited to murder Palestinians” for the revenge killing of Mohammed Abu Khder.

Herzog can breathe a sigh of relief that Tibi rejected the idea of joining a Siamese twin coalition headed by Herzog and Livni.

However, if the “Zionist Camp” forms the next coalition, Tibi said it might get the support of Arab MKs in critical votes in exchange for more funds for the Arab sector.

Marwan Barghouti Placed in Solitary

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Convicted Fatah/Tanzin (Palestinian Authority) terrorist leader Marwan Barghouti was placed in solitary confinement after he smuggled out a letter out from Hadarim prison calling on his followers to use “armed resistance” against Israel, a euphemism for terrorism.

He also called on the PA security forces to stop cooperating with Israel.

On May 20, 2004, Barghouti was convicted of 5 counts of murder, including ordering and organizing the Seafood market attack in Tel Aviv, on March 5, 2002, which killed 3 people and wounded 15 more. He is serving 5 lifetime sentences.

Who Is Worse – Arafat or Abbas?

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday, the 10th anniversary of the death of Yasser Arafat, that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas is even worse than his predecessor.

“There is no difference between Arafat and Abu Mazen [Abbas],” he said. “Both of them hate Jews and believe in terror. The only difference is that Abu Mazen is more dangerous because he knows much better how to mask his true face.”

Lieberman put on the finishing touches Wednesday morning when he told Israel that Abbas also is worse than Hamas.

Abbas said in his speech on Tuesday commemorating Arafat that Israel is “contaminating” the Temple Mount. He even had the chutzpah to declare that Christians would never recognize eastern Jerusalem as part of the capital of Jerusalem.

International media have published so much propaganda against Israel that they have virtually erased from history the era of the Jordanian occupation, when Christians, as well as Jews, were barred from all holy sites under Jordanian rule.

Abbas’ outright incitement in his speech included praise for Muslim “heroes” at the Temple Mount who “have the right to defend themselves,” referring to Jews who “attack” by setting foot on the holy site, where they are barred from praying by the Muslim authority.

Abbas apparently fears that Jews might have prayers in mind, and that certainly is dangerous to Allah.

His incendiary speech fired up Lieberman, who is not a fan of Jews parading to the Temple Mount but who also is not too big on diplomatic charades.

He tore into Abbas Wednesday morning and said that he is an “illegitimate” leader of the Palestinian Authority because he has stayed in office for five years beyond the date for new elections.

Abbas “does not respect agreements and does not want peace but instead promotes terror.” He added, “His incitement is more dangerous than that of Hamas.”

Lieberman reiterated his previous suggestion that riot-plagued areas of Israel, such as the Triangle region between Netanya and Kfar Sava, and the Wadi Ara area around the Arab city of Umm el-Fahm to the north, could be part of a new Arab country.

“Once everything is made clear, the rioters certainly would be happy to live in a Palestinian state where they can enjoy freedom of speech, democracy, welfare assistance and unemployment insurance,” Lieberman said with enough bitter sarcasm that could turn honey into sour milk.

So is Abbas really worse than Arafat?

With all due apologies for throwing in a contradictory comparison with the Biblical Noach, the only difference between them is a generation.

The Torah cites Noach as a righteous mean, and Torah sages point out that he was a righteous man for his generation but certainly could not be compared with Abraham, ten generations later. However, each one was righteous in his generation.

Arafat terrorized Israel when ISIS did not exist, when even some Israelis on the center-right believed there could be some kind of compromise with the Palestinian Authority, and when the world had not yet realized that it was on the eve of a radical Islamic revolution and an Iran that seeks nuclear weapons to threaten the world with an Islamic universe or nuclear destruction.

Arafat was a terrorist when terrorism was appreciated by the world so long as it only killed Jews in Israel. He got away with wearing a pistol on his hip while talking about peace. He managed to turn the Nobel Peace prize into a mockery of truth.

Arafat set the stage for Abbas to put on a suit and tie, travel around the world to build up support for a “peace plan” that was a con game to set up Israel for destruction as a Jewish state.

Barghouti, PA’s Most Popular Leader, Calls for ‘Armed Resistance’

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Convicted and jailed-for-life terrorist Marwan Barghouti published a letter from his prison cell Tuesday to urge Arabs to join an “armed resistance.”

“Choosing global and armed resistance” was being “faithful to Arafat’s legacy, to his ideas, and his principles for which tens of thousands died as martyrs,” he stated.

His letter of incitement on Tuesday was meant to commemorate Yasser Arafat on the 10 anniversary of his death and included an accusation that his “assassination” was the result of “an official Israeli-American decision.”

Barghouti repeatedly has been at the top of Palestinian Authority popularity polls. He is serving five life terms for his involvement in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks that killed and wounded hundreds of Israelis.

He often has been mentioned to be ןincluded in some of Israel’s infamous deals to free terrorists in return for a lone soldier or corpses of victims of Palestinian Authority terrorism.

Israel’s left-wing establishment media almost succeeded at least twice in campaigns to place Barghouti on the list of terrorists to be freed, but sanity prevailed among Cabinet ministers.

Ma’an reported, “Barghouti has said he never supported attacks on civilians inside Israel and in recent years has thrown his support behind peaceful resistance.”

That is par for the course for the Palestinian Authority”s voluminous rewritten history.

It seems that is no longer politically correct in the Palestinian Authority, which has been supported by most Western leader, most notably President Barack Obama and with the notable exception of Canada, to claim that Israel must expel nearly 600,000 Jews from half of Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria and turn over all of their property to the Palestinian Authority.

And don’t forget the tip. With the expulsion demand said and done, a new demand from the Arab world is that Israel must pay damages for having stepping foot over the Green Line.

Neturei Karta Joins Arab Anti-Zionist Colleagues to Remember Arafat

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

A bunch of anti-Zionist Jews from the Neturei Karta cult joined Palestinian Authority Arabs in Ramallah on Tuesday for a commemoration marking the 10th year since the death of Yasser Arafat, who turned the Nobel Prize into an award for terrorism.

The small Jewish representation from the sect waved Palestinian Authority flags, according to the official PA news agency WAFA, which also took care to dig up the canard that Israeli poisoned Arafat although it admitted that French investigators said that traces of polonium supposedly found on his body were not enough to prove that poison was the cause of his death.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas praised Neturei Karta for tis dedication to the Arab cause and added, according WAFA’s report, “that people from different religious backgrounds can live together in coexistence.”

It forgot to add that the Palestinian Authority regime’s understanding of “coexistence” is conditioned on no one disagreeing with it.

 

 

Fatah Cancels Arafat Gaza Memorial: Too Dangerous

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Tues, Nov. 11, is the 10th anniversary of the death of former terrorist leader Yasser Arafat. Arafat was a founder and leader of the Fatah movement.

On Friday, Nov. 7, there were explosions in 10 different locations in Gaza.  All of the houses and cars that were hit belonged to members of Arafat’s Fatah movement. One of the explosions took place at the stage being set up for the upcoming Arafat commemoration.

Fatah Spokesperson Fayez Abu Eita has now told AFP that it was canceling the Arafat commemoration ceremonies in Gaza, because Hamas said it could not guarantee security at the memorial events.

Fatah blamed Hamas for the explosions which struck homes and cars belonging to Fatah officials in the Gaza Strip. Hamas condemned the strikes, describing them as a “heinous crime aimed at damaging Gaza’s internal security.”

There has been no claim of responsibility for the strikes.

On the fifth year anniversary of Arafat’s death, Hamas forbade any commemoration of the event. That was in 2009, just two years after Hamas ousted Fatah leadership from the Gaza Strip.

Nearly a Dozen Gazan Fatah Houses and Cars Go Boom

Friday, November 7th, 2014

So long as they are going after each other, it deflects their murderous attention from us. The two major Palestinian Arab parties, Hamas and Fatah, perhaps should be renamed Dumb and Dumber.

Just months after publicly “overcoming” their homicidal animosity towards each other and creating a national unity government, they’ve now gone back to publicly destroying each other. And not just with words.

On Friday, Nov. 7, at least 10 explosions hit homes and cars belonging to ranking members of Fatah, an AFP correspondent and witnesses said.

So what touched off this latest episode of internecine ugliness?

Why, it’s the planned commemoration of the 10th death anniversary of the biggest baddie of Palestinian Arab fame, Fatah founder Yasser Arafat.

Don’t forget, this is a society in which university clubs affiliated with the different Palestinian factions compete for popularity on the basis of how many Israelis each faction has killed.

How do we know that’s the connection? One, this year is the first time in years there is a planned public commemoration of Arafat’s death in Gaza. And two, the stage in Gaza at which that commemoration was to take place was one of the targets.

Until the most recent make-up session, there weren’t many Fatah-affiliated Arabs in Gaza, and that’s because they were thrown the heck out by Hamas, the local terror tyrants, in 2007.

There were no reported casualties from the blasts, and both Fatah and Hamas publicly condemned the attacks.

The Arafat death celebration is still scheduled to be held in Gaza on Nov. 11.
