Tzipi Livni Facing Tough Crowd, 2009

Tzipi Livni

I belong to the choir of commentators who’ve pointed out Israeli Justice Minister and peace negotiator Tzipi Livni’s narcissism, her obvious shift to the left over the past two decades, and the fact that she is on a dangerous mission that could undermine Israel’s ability to defend itself, let alone retain its national and religious values. In recent days, having watched a lot of Tzipi Livni footage on TV, I can add an annoying Israeli accent in English that reminds me of the Tom Hanks character in the “Sabra Price is Right” on SNL.

All of that aside, watch this 2009 Tzipi Livni appearance in the Press Club, where she is attacked relentlessly over the Gaza operation, and showing an amazing fortitude. Tzipi is one tough cookie, which is seriously scary, because she is so very delusional about the region where she happens to be negotiating for peace.

She keeps saying we live in a tough neighborhood, but I don’t think Tzipi Livni knows from tough neighborhoods. If she did, she’d know that the most you can hope for in a tough neighborhood is to make sure you don’t die tonight. There are no other values.

It’s funny how she inherited from her parents—both of them members of the Irgun—all the toughness of their clandestine experiences, but very few of their values.

The C-Span tape is a little shaky at the beginning, but gets better.

    Have America Jews abandoned Israel?

    I been work on this problem for four years and very few will help. So please share this with anyone who can help.

    Desert Cattle to the Rescue, Texas Longhorn.
    I like guns but for me they are just tools, a tool to protect the cattle and myself. But the cattle have something better, sharp horns. They can kill and it takes a lot less explaining afterwards then it does if I shot the SOB.

    Israeli Ranches are being attacked, their land being stolen and their passive European cattle are being mutilated and killed by local Arabs and by natural predators, wolves and jackals. Israeli European beef cattle are incompatible with Israel’s desert environment. This has resulted in many problems including high calf losses, (as high as 30%). Israel needs desert cattle that fits its environment and can defend it's self and it's calves. That breed of cattle is Texas Longhorn. We are 501 c 3 non-profit. To start we need $256,000. Go to our website and donate: http://LonghornProject.org.

    Helping to create jobs and helping a sector of Israel’s economy. Recently, I received reports of ranchers and their families being murdered.

    We will be using 22nd century cattle handle methods called, Stockmanship and ecological grazing techniques called Strategic Grazing. Both will be taught to Israeli Ranchers.

  2. I agree with the author of the story. It was sickening to see her and Peres as representatives of Israel in the latest farce known as the "peace talks." Unfortunately, Netanyahu seems to be joining this appeasement movement. The Israeli public is going to have to make a very important decision. Do they want strong leadership that will resist pressure from Israel's enemies or do they want appeasers who will give the country away for nothing. How they decide will determine the fate of Israel.

We all sing it on Chanukah, but what’s the song about? Why did the mysterious last paragraph of the song disappear for 500 years? All the answers in song (and in Hebrew):

Chanukiah Origin

A Menorah has 7 branches, but a Chanukiah has 9. How did that happen? And who invented the name Chanukiah in the first place? All these questions and more will be answered in this entertaining video (in Hebrew):


William (Bill) Kristol is co-founder and editor of The Weekly Standard and a veteran political analyst and commentator. He joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the confluence of Israeli-American values as well as the tensions. Also, Bradley Patty who served as a member of the Iraq Adviser Task Force working with US forces outside the wire in Iraq on tribal affairs and information operations. He joins Yishai in-studio to talk about his experiences in Iraq and his impressions of Israel.

How did the holiday and customs of Chanukah begin? Why do we say in the Bracha that God commanded us to light the candles, when He didn’t? How do we celebrate a holiday that isn’t mentioned in the Torah? Here’s a quick 4 minute answer to all these questions and more (in Hebrew):

Conveniently enough, some Arabs were busy filming their fellow Arabs throwing stones at passing Israeli cars in Hebron, as other Arabs stood nearby (initially) unperturbed by the fact that right next to them, their fellow Arabs were attacking Jewish drivers on the road. What the Arabs were not expecting, was that the justifiably enraged Jews […]

Naftali Bennett was on the Israeli comedy show “Matzav HaUma” the other day. Enjoy (if you understand Hebrew).

Bennett does an amazing job at the Saban Forum. And an even better job taking on Martin Indyk.

We would love to show you a MEMRI video, but YouTube has terminated their account. Sorry.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past.
