The game has changed, islamic terrorists attacking Israel are paying the price

Gazan Islamic terrorist killed on his motorcycle in Israeli airstrike
This new Netanyahu administration and its defence minister Moshe Yaalon have shown that the game has now changed, from one of appeasing terrorists to exacting a price.

Hitam al-Mahsal a salafist who was responsible for the latest rocket attacks on Eilat was this morning helped into his islamic paradise stuffed with young and beautiful virgins by the israeli air force.

This along with Israel's policy of responding every time it is attacked from Syria will help to keep the peace.

Arabs respect a strong policy of retaliation, even if they don't understand Israel's basic humanity of restraint, of not simply clearing Gaza southwards.

Arabs commit ethnic cleansing constantly of those who are no threat, but who are different, such as the christians of Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Libya. Previously in the 1950's all the jews were ethnically cleansed from arab lands.

That Israel has never done this is seen as a terrible weakness, but Israel's humanity brings benefits in other ways, of an open tolerant society which many arab citizens do respect and are happy to live in.

Having an understood policy of retaliation is the next safest thing to having an area cleared of a hostile population.

So cudos to the new administration in Israel. Finally it seems to understand that the only peace with arabs comes through the barrel of a gun, and the willingness to use it.

It would be nice if Obama understood this, but he doesn't. After drawing a red line to the Syrians against using chemical weapons, he's now let it be known that this was merely a 'political' red line. This might delude him but it won't convince the West's enemies in the region.

Unlike Israel, the US coin is depreciating fast. How sad, at a time when a strong America is needed for world peace, most notably in the middle-east but also in asia with a resurgent and aggressive China.

Islam, the fundamental differences between it and other religions

Islam is misunderstood in Israel and the West (i.e. in societies which subscribe to ideals of modern western civilisation, of freedom of the individual and human rights, such as found in Britain, Japan, Taiwan, and the USA amongst others ). Islam does not recognise the individual or individual rights, but it does make a differerence between the believer and the unbeliever. Muslim ethics and morality are dual, based on whether you belong to dar al islam (house of islam) or dar al harb (house of war), whether your are a muslim or an enemy.

The West does not understand the duality of islamic ethics and can not understand why it never succeeds in appeasing political islam, why radical muslims always have a grievance, why nothing that western societies do for muslims like accepting refugees from wars in islamic countries is ever appreciated by those the West tries the hardest to appease, the radical muslims.

If you read the interview below, you will begin to understand why just as with Mussolini and Hitler there was no room for appeasement or compromise. The only way with a radical ideology is to either utterly destroy it, or to learn to live with it in an armed peace, something approaching Israel's present reality with Gaza.

When muslims come to live in the West they must be encouraged to assimilate, to be loyal to their new lands. They should not be educated at public expense by muslim clerics who are overwhelmingly trained in radical islamc madrassas. Muslim institutions that are identified as radical need to be shut down (Israel must itself take heed. Raed Salah and his northern league are radicalising arab youth in Israel every bit as much as is happening in european countries).

Israel was just as unable to understand islam as western powers,  subject to the same misnomers that there could be a true peace with arabs if it gave concessions and territory away. The second intifada which followed hard on the heels of Baraks offer to withdraw from almost all of Judea and Samaria (after having withdrawn from Lebanon and reaped its reward there in the form of Hezbollah terror against the  northern border).

The average Israeli just as the average Briton or American now understands the threat of radicals schooled in islam. But Western leaders schooled in the politics of appeasement, of guilt for imperialist crimes of over a century ago still don't understand.

The West has to rid itself of its guilt complex towards muslims and islam. Islam is a religion every bit as imperialistic as ever the West was. The West needs to learn about the Koran and the arab slavers, of racist attacks against black people in arab countries, of arab and islamic slavery which continues today. 

FP: Tell us a bit about the Center for the Study of Political Islam.

Warner: The Center for the Study of Political Islam is a group of scholars who are devoted to the scientific study of the foundational texts of Islam—Koran, Sira (life of Mohammed) and Hadith (traditions of Mohammed). There are two areas to study in Islam, its doctrine and history, or as CSPI sees it—the theory and its results. We study the history to see the practical or experimental results of the doctrine. 

CSPI seems to be the first group to use statistics to study the doctrine. Previous scientific studies of the Koran are primarily devoted to Arabic language studies. 

Our first principle is that Koran, Sira and Hadith must be taken as a whole. We call them the Islamic Trilogy to emphasize the unity of the texts.

Our major intellectual breakthrough is to see that dualism is the foundation and key to understanding Islam. Everything about Islam comes in twos starting with its foundational declaration: (1) there is no god but Allah and (2) Mohammed is His prophet. Therefore, Islam is Allah (Koran) and the Sunna (words and deeds of Mohammed found in the Sira and Hadith).

Endless ink has been wasted on trying to answer the question of what is Islam? Is Islam the religion of peace? Or is the true Islam a radical ideology? Is a moderate Muslim the real Muslim?

This reminds a scientist of the old arguments about light. Is light a particle or is light a wave? The arguments went back and forth. Quantum mechanics gave us the answer. Light is dualistic; it is both a particle and a wave. It depends upon the circumstances as to which quality manifests. Islam functions in the same manner.

Our first clue about the dualism is in the Koran, which is actually two books, the Koran of Mecca (early) and the Koran of Medina (later). The insight into the logic of the Koran comes from the large numbers of contradictions in it. On the surface, Islam resolves these contradictions by resorting to “abrogation”. This means that the verse written later supersedes the earlier verse. But in fact, since the Koran is considered by Muslims to be the perfect word of Allah, both verses are sacred and true. The later verse is “better,” but the earlier verse cannot be wrong since Allah is perfect. This is the foundation of dualism. Both verses are “right.” Both sides of the contradiction are true in dualistic logic. The circumstances govern which verse is used.

 For example:

(Koran of Mecca) 73:10: Listen to what they [unbelievers] say with patience, and leave them with dignity.

From tolerance we move to the ultimate intolerance, not even the Lord of the Universe can stand the unbelievers:

(Koran of Medina) 8:12: Then your Lord spoke to His angels and said, “I will be with you. Give strength to the believers. I will send terror into the unbelievers’ hearts, cut off their heads and even the tips of their fingers!”

All of Western logic is based upon the law of contradiction—if two things contradict, then at least one of them is false. But Islamic logic is dualistic; two things can contradict each other and both are true.

 No dualistic system may be measured by one answer. This is the reason that the arguments about what constitutes the “real” Islam go on and on and are never resolved. A single right answer does not exist.

Dualistic systems can only be measured by statistics. It is futile to argue one side of the dualism is true. As an analogy, quantum mechanics always gives a statistical answer to all questions.

For an example of using statistics, look at the question: what is the real jihad, the jihad of inner, spiritual struggle or the jihad of war? Let’s turn to Bukhari (the Hadith) for the answer, as he repeatedly speaks of jihad. In Bukhari 97% of the jihad references are about war and 3% are about the inner struggle. So the statistical answer is that jihad is 97% war and 3% inner struggle. Is jihad war? Yes—97%. Is jihad inner struggle? Yes—3%. So if you are writing an article, you can make a case for either. But in truth, almost every argument about Islam can be answered by: all of the above. Both sides of the duality are right.

FP: Why, in your view, is there so much ignorance about the history and doctrine of political Islam in the West?

Warner: First, let’s see how ignorant we are about the history of political Islam. How many Christians can tell you how Turkey or Egypt became Islamic? What happened to the Seven Churches of Asia mentioned in Paul’s letters? Find a Jew who can tell you the Jewish history of dhimmitude (second class citizens who serve Islam). What European knows that white women were the highest priced slaves in Mecca? Everyone knows how many Jews Hitler killed, but find an unbeliever who can tell you how many died in jihad over the last 1400 years.

We are just as ignorant about the doctrine of Islam. An FBI agent gets two hours of training on Islam and most of that is how not to offend the imam. We are fighting in Iraq. Who utilizes the political, military doctrine of Islam to plan strategy? Who can find a single rabbi or minister who has read the Koran, Sira and Hadith? What governor, senator, congressmen or military leader displays a knowledge of the political doctrine of Islam? Try to find a course available in a college about Islamic political doctrine and ethics. Graduates are schooled in Islamic art, architecture, poetry, Sufism, and a glorious history that ignores the suffering of the innocent unbelievers. Graduates read comments about the Koran and Hadith, but do not read the actual doctrine.

FP: So why this ignorance?

 Warner: Let’s start at the beginning. When Islam burst out of Arabia into a decaying Byzantine world, the unbelievers recorded it as an Arabic invasion. Similarly, the invasion of Eastern Europe was by Turks; the invasion of Spain was by Moors. Our scholars were incapable of even naming the invaders.

Mohammed killed every single intellectual or artist who opposed him. It was fear that drove the vast majority of the media not to reprint the Mohammed cartoons, not some imagined sensitivity. Fear is a fabulous basis for ignorance, but that is not enough to explain it all. What accounts for the almost psychotic aversion to knowledge about Islam? Beyond fear is the realization that political Islam is profoundly foreign to us.

Let’s examine the ethical basis of our civilization. All of our politics and ethics are based upon a unitary ethic that is best formulated in the Golden Rule:

Treat others as you would be treated.

The basis of this rule is the recognition that at one level, we are all the same. We are not all equal. Any game of sports will show that we do not have equal abilities. But everyone wants to be treated as a human being. In particular, we all want to be equal under the law and be treated as social equals. On the basis of the Golden Rule—the equality of human beings—we have created democracy, ended slavery and treat women and men as political equals. So the Golden Rule is a unitary ethic. All people are to be treated the same. All religions have some version of the Golden Rule except Islam.

 FP: So how is Islam different in this context?

Warner: The term “human being” has no meaning inside of Islam. There is no such thing as humanity, only the duality of the believer and unbeliever. Look at the ethical statements found in the Hadith. A Muslim should not lie, cheat, kill or steal from other Muslims. But a Muslim may lie, deceive or kill an unbeliever if it advances Islam.

There is no such thing as a universal statement of ethics in Islam. Muslims are to be treated one way and unbelievers another way. The closest Islam comes to a universal statement of ethics is that the entire world must submit to Islam. After Mohammed became a prophet, he never treated an unbeliever the same as a Muslim. Islam denies the truth of the Golden Rule.

 By the way, this dualistic ethic is the basis for jihad. The ethical system sets up the unbeliever as less than human and therefore, it is easy to kill, harm or deceive the unbeliever.

Now mind you, unbelievers have frequently failed at applying the Golden Rule, but we can be judged and condemned on its basis. We do fall short, but it is our ideal.

There have been other dualistic cultures. The KKK comes to mind. But the KKK is a simplistic dualism. The KKK member hates all black people at all times; there is only one choice. This is very straightforward and easy to see.

The dualism of Islam is more deceitful and offers two choices on how to treat the unbeliever. The unbeliever can be treated nicely, in the same way a farmer treats his cattle well. So Islam can be “nice”, but in no case is the unbeliever a “brother” or a friend. In fact, there are some 14 verses of the Koran that are emphatic—a Muslim is never a friend to the unbeliever. A Muslim may be “friendly,” but he is never an actual friend. And the degree to which a Muslim is actually a true friend is the degree to which he is not a Muslim, but a hypocrite.

 FP: You mentioned earlier how logic is another point of profound difference. Can you touch on that?

Warner: To reiterate, all of science is based upon the law of contradiction. If two things contradict each other, then at least one of them has to be false. But inside of Islamic logic, two contradictory statements can both be true. Islam uses dualistic logic and we use unitary scientific logic.

Since Islam has a dualistic logic and dualistic ethics, it is completely foreign to us. Muslims think differently from us and feel differently from us. So our aversion is based upon fear and a rejection of Islamic ethics and logic. This aversion causes us to avoid learning about Islam so we are ignorant and stay ignorant.

Another part of the aversion is the realization that there is no compromise with dualistic ethics. There is no halfway place between unitary ethics and dualistic ethics. If you are in a business deal with someone who is a liar and a cheat, there is no way to avoid getting cheated. No matter how nice you are to a con man, he will take advantage of you. There is no compromise with dualistic ethics. In short, Islamic politics, ethics and logic cannot be part of our civilization. Islam does not assimilate, it dominates. There is never any “getting along” with Islam. Its demands never cease and the demands must be met on Islam’s terms: submission.

The last reason for our aversion to the history of political Islam is our shame. Islam put over a million Europeans into slavery. Since Muslims can’t be enslaved, it was a white Christian who was the Turkish sultan’s sex slave. These are things that we do not want to face.

Jews don’t want to acknowledge the history of political Islam, because they were dhimmis, second class citizens or semi-slaves, just like the Christians. Jews like to recall how they were advisors and physicians to powerful Muslims, but no matter what the Jew did or what position he held, he was still a dhimmi. There is no compromise between being equal and being a dhimmi

Why should a Hindu want to recall the shame of slavery and the destruction of their temples and cities? After Hindu craftsmen built the Taj Mahal, the Muslim ruler had their right hands cut off so that they could not build anything as beautiful for anyone else. The practice of suttee, the widow throwing herself on the husband’s funeral pyre, came about as a response to the rape and brutality of the Islamic jihad as it sweep over ancient Hindustan.

Blacks don’t want to face the fact that it was a Muslim who rounded up their ancestors in Africa to wholesale to the white slave trader. The Arab is the true master of the African. Blacks can’t accept the common bond they share with whites: that both Europeans and Africans were slaves under Islam. Blacks like to imagine Islam is their counterweight to white power, not that Islam has ruled them for 1400 years.

Dualistic logic. Dualistic ethics. Fear. Shame. There is no compromise. These are the reasons we don’t want to know about Islam’s political history, doctrine or ethics.

FP So is there such a thing as non-political Islam?

Warner: Non-political Islam is religious Islam. Religious Islam is what a Muslim does to avoid Hell and go to Paradise. These are the Five Pillars—prayer, charity to Muslims, pilgrimage to Mecca, fasting and declaring Mohammed to be the final prophet.

But the Trilogy is clear about the doctrine. At least 75% of the Sira (life of Mohammed) is about jihad. About 67% of the Koran written in Mecca is about the unbelievers, or politics. Of the Koran of Medina, 51% is devoted to the unbelievers. About 20% of Bukhari’s Hadith is about jihad and politics. Religion is the smallest part of Islamic foundational texts.

Political Islam’s most famous duality is the division of the world into believers, dar al Islam, and unbelievers, dar al harb. The largest part of the Trilogy relates to treatment of the unbelievers, kafirs. Even Hell is political. There are 146 references to Hell in the Koran. Only 6% of those in Hell are there for moral failings—murder, theft, etc. The other 94% of the reasons for being in Hell are for the intellectual sin of disagreeing with Mohammed, a political crime. Hence, Islamic Hell is a political prison for those who speak against Islam.

Mohammed preached his religion for 13 years and garnered only 150 followers. But when he turned to politics and war, in 10 years time he became the first ruler of Arabia by averaging an event of violence every 7 weeks for 9 years. His success did not come as a religious leader, but as a political leader.

In short, political Islam defines how the unbelievers are to be dealt with and treated.

FP: Can you touch briefly on the history of political Islam?

Warner: The history of political Islam starts with Mohammed’s immigration to Medina. From that point on, Islam’s appeal to the world has always had the dualistic option of joining a glorious religion or being the subject of political pressure and violence. After the immigration to Medina, Islam became violent when persuasion failed. Jihad entered the world.

After Mohammed’s death, Abu Bakr, the second caliph, settled the theological arguments of those who wished to leave Islam with the political action of death by the sword. The jihad of Umar (the second caliph, a pope-king) exploded into the world of the unbelievers. Jihad destroyed a Christian Middle East and a Christian North Africa. Soon it was the fate of the Persian Zoroastrian and the Hindu to be the victims of jihad. The history of political Islam is the destruction of Christianity in the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey and North Africa. Half of Christianity was lost. Before Islam, North Africa was the southern part of Europe (part of the Roman Empire). Around 60 million Christians were slaughtered during the jihadic conquest.

Half of the glorious Hindu civilization was annihilated and 80 million Hindus killed.

The first Western Buddhists were the Greeks descended from Alexander the Great’s army in what is now Afghanistan. Jihad destroyed all of Buddhism along the silk route. About 10 million Buddhists died. The conquest of Buddhism is the practical result of pacifism.

Zoarasterianism was eliminated from Persia.

The Jews became permanent dhimmis throughout Islam.

In Africa over 120 million Christians and animists have died over the last 1400 years of jihad.

Approximately 270 million nonbelievers died over the last 1400 years for the glory of political Islam. These are the Tears of Jihad which are not taught in any school.

FP: How have our intellectuals responded to Islam?

Warner: The basis of all the unbeliever’s thought has collapsed in the face of Islamic political thought, ethics and logic. We have already mentioned how our first intellectuals could not even name the invaders as Muslims. We have no method of analysis of Islam. We can’t agree on what Islam is and have no knowledge about our suffering as the victims of a 1400-year jihad.

Look at how Christians, Jews, blacks, intellectuals and artists have dealt with Islamic doctrine and history. In every case their primary ideas fail.

Christians believe that “love conquers all.” Well, love does not conquer Islam. Christians have a difficult time seeing Islam as a political doctrine, not a religion. The sectarian nature of Christian thought means that the average non-Orthodox Christian has no knowledge or sympathy about the Orthodox Christian’s suffering.

Jews have a theology that posits a unique relationship between Jews and the creator-god of the universe. But Islam sees the Jews as apes who corrupted the Old Testament. Jews see no connection between Islam’s political doctrine and Israel.

Black intellectuals have based their ideas on the slave/victim status and how wrong it was for white Christians to make them slaves. Islam has never acknowledged any of the pain and suffering it has caused in Africa with its 1400-year-old slave trade. But blacks make no attempt to get an apology from Muslims and are silent in the presence of Islam. Why? Is it because Arabs are their masters?

Multiculturalism is bankrupt against Islam’s demand for every civilization to submit. The culture of tolerance collapses in the face of the sacred intolerance of dualistic ethics. Intellectuals respond by ignoring the failure.

Our intellectuals and artists have been abused for 1400 years. Indeed, the psychology of our intellectuals is exactly like the psychology of the abused wife, the sexually abused child or rape victim. Look at the parallels between the response of abuse victims and our intellectuals. See how violence has caused denial.

The victims deny that the abuse took place: Our media never reports the majority of jihad around the world. Our intellectuals don’t talk about how all of the violence is connected to a political doctrine.

The abuser uses fear to control the victim: What was the reason that newspapers would not publish the Mohammed cartoon? Salman Rushdie still has a death sentence for his novel. What “cutting edge” artist creates any artistic statement about Islam? Fear rules our intellectuals and artists.

The victims find ways to blame themselves: We are to blame for the attacks on September 11, 2001. If we try harder Muslims will act nicer. We have to accommodate their needs.

The victim is humiliated: White people will not talk about how their ancestors were enslaved by Islam. No one wants to claim the victims of jihad. Why won’t we claim the suffering of our ancestors? Why don’t we cry about the loss of cultures and peoples? We are too ashamed to care.

The victim feels helpless: “What are we going to do?” “We can’t kill 1.3 billion people.” No one has any understanding or optimism. No one has an idea of what to try. The only plan is to “be nicer.”

The victim turns the anger inward: What is the most divisive issue in today’s politics? Iraq. And what is Iraq really about? Political Islam. The Web has a video about how the CIA and Bush planned and executed September 11. Cultural self-loathing is the watchword of our intellectuals and artists.

We hate ourselves because we are mentally molested and abused. Our intellectuals and artists have responded to the abuse of jihad just as a sexually abused child or a rape victim would respond. We are quite intellectually ill and are failing at our job of clear thinking. We can’t look at our denial.

FP: So summarize for us why it is so crucial for us to learn the doctrine of political Islam.

Warner: Political Islam has annihilated every culture it has invaded or immigrated to. The total time for annihilation takes centuries, but once Islam is ascendant it never fails. The host culture disappears and becomes extinct.

We must learn the doctrine of political Islam to survive. The doctrine is very clear that all forms of force and persuasion may and must be used to conquer us. Islam is a self-declared enemy of all unbelievers. The brilliant Chinese philosopher of war, Sun Tsu, had the dictum—know the enemy. We must know the doctrine of our enemy or be annihilated.

Or put another way: if we do not learn the doctrine of political Islam, our civilization will be annihilated just as Egypt’s Coptic civilization was annihilated.

Since unbelievers must know the doctrine of political Islam to survive, CSPI has written all of its books in simple English. Our books are scholarly, but easy to read. As an example, anyone who can read a newspaper can pick up A Simple Koran and read and understand it. It is not “dumbed down” and contains every single word of the original.

Not only is the language simple, but logic has been used to sort and categorize. Context and chronology have been restored. The result is a Koran that is an epic story ending in triumph over all enemies of Allah. All of our books and philosophy may be found at our center's website.

Islam declares that we are the enemies of Allah. If we do not learn the political doctrine of Islam we will end up just like the first victims of Islam—the tolerant, polytheist Arabs of Saudi Arabia who became the Wahabbis (a very strict branch of Islam) of today, the most intolerant culture on the face of the earth.

FP: Bill Warner, thank you for joining us today.

Warner: Jamie, thank you for your kindness and efforts.

The Islamic World War, right on Israel's doorstep

And Israel is doing absolutely nothing about it ( although there has been a little rumbling about chemical weapons). Thank the Lord. Israel's policy has been the best, unlike that of the USA which as usual has backed the wrong side, which in this case is any side.

 Israel has understood that the pox is in both the arab houses, the rebels and the syrian government. The secular rebels might have stood a chance in the beginning, had the USA armed them and trained them, but president Obama channeled aid to the anti-Assad forces via islamist Turkey which starved the secular rebels of aid. Qatar and Saudi Arabia have also been arming the sunni islamists. It is believed that Obama has for the last few years had a deliberate policy of supporting Muslim Brotherhood states as a bulwark against Iran. This is a stupid policy, which means that there is no side in this conflict which is moderate, no grouping which the West could live with after the guns fall silent. On one side is Iran, and the other al Qaidah and Muslim Brotherhood influenced islamists.

Although the secular rebels hold some territory, it is the Al Nusrah and other islamist rebels who are doing the main fighting and taking the most territory. If Assad goes, the secular rebels will also go with him, just as happened to the mujahideen in Iran once they deposed the shah. There was an almighty slaughter of the secular mujahideen, students, journalistsand intellectual opponents of the ayatollahs.

So will anyone win in this war? That's still not seeming likely. Despite the best efforts of europe and the USA to bring the war to a close with a victory for the sunni islamists, Iran and its shiite brothers the alawites and Hezbollah have too much to lose and they know it.
 During the funeral of a Hezbollah fighter who was killed in Syria, a prominent Hezbollah party official addressed the mourners amid their confusion about the deaths that their sons are being driven to. The official defended Hezbollah's fighting alongside Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria and described it as a duty more important than any other. He described it as a fighting for existence as they are defending places that are important to the Shiite sect and that it is a pre-emptive strike for battles that may target the sect if the Assad regime falls.

 It is a battle for life or death. This is how it is presented.

As the rebels ramp up the pressure, so Iran and Hezbollah increase their activities. We don't know much about the iranians, but Hezbollah fighters are dying in droves.
 NOW also reported that a large number of corpses of Hezbollah militants who died in combat in Syria are at the Sheikh Ragheb Harb Hospital Nabatiyeh’s Jeb Sheet and that the Shiite group is burying them in installments in order not to draw attention to the growing phenomenon of Hezbollah deaths in Syria.
 Sunni jihadists are being sucked in from all over the world and Iran and Hezbollah are propping up the beleagured alawite rump regime in Damascus.

Hezbollah that was founded with the aim of destroying Israel is now bleeding steadily but surely, all at no cost to Israel. In their blood lust, their petty islamic doctrinal differences (yet so important in an intolerant religion like islam which brooks no room for doubt, no room to question any accepted precepts) the shia and sunni branches of islam are locked in conflict from Pakistan to Lebanon.

Israel just watches, and does nothing except lob the occasional Tammuz missile back in answer to fire from Syria. Ehud Barack is gone and Israel and the West's enemies now know that if Israel is attacked, to expect a response, every time, even if the response is still not adequate to bring  Hamas to stop the attacks. The odd missile which does no harm to Israelis might not seem too serious to some, but these are terror weapons. They terrorise, such as with the missile fired at Sderot on Lag Baomer, a jewish holiday. The kids had to abandon their bonfires and enter protected rooms. This is the childhood Hamas has given jewish kids for over ten years now.

This destruction of Israeli children's lives is no longer tolerable now that there is there a government in power which refuses to sacrifice Sderot and Netivot. When Hamas fires a missile at Israel there is a price to be paid. Thankfully the stupid bombing of open areas is finished with. It didn't put the  terrorists off but was utilised by world media to condemn Israel as the aggressor. Now Israel closes a crossing with Gaza in return for fire, just letting humanitarian aid through.

And if the message does not finally get home, if Gazans do continue to attack Israel, Israel should cease the delivery of electricity and even cut all links with Gaza. Israel owes the arabs of Gaza nothing, and under international law does not need to keep rescuing that Muslim Brotherhood islamist entity from itself. Gaza has more in common with Egypt than with Judea and Samaria. Muslim Brotherhood Egypt and the international community should be allowed to care for Gaza, if they wish.

 And if the terror still continues, assassinations were very effective, are effective in bringing the jihadists to book. Hamas must know that its leaders will be killed if israeli children can not enjoy sabbath or holiday games in the outside air. When missiles hit Sderot just as children are going or returning from school, those responsible for the attacks must be eliminated, just as the US does to al Qaida leaders.

Even whilst muslim radicals fight amongst themselves, they still have Israel and the West not too far in the back of their minds, which is why it is best for the West to sit back and let our enemies get on with their business in Syria. The islamist fanatics are killing each other, and might very well continue to do so for years.

The latest islamist conspiracy theory: The FBI carried out the Boston bombings

Along with the 9/11 atrocity, this jihadist website wishes us to believe that fanatical muslims weren't responsible for the Boston bombing, that the two young chechniyan men were just innocents gunned down by US agents. 

You have to read the whole thing to get inside the conspiracy which interestingly enough was begun by a far right american website. Do islamists actually believe that US security forces blew up an american event? It is more likely that this is used for purposes of Taqiyya, the koranic islamic precept of deceiving the infidel when necessary by disowning responsibility, by throwing responsibility onto others, by denying what you believe in. And the islamists will always find their willing stooges such as Mrs Clinton who never tired of promoting islam as a 'religion of peace'. Maybe after repeating this lie often enough she began to believe it. Strangely enough Clinton never referred to christianity or judaism in such glowing terms.

But many muslims will swallow the conspiracy theories whole. Soon enough the jews will be brought into the conspiracy, and this will be the source of a new grievance against jews and the West, for making up allegations about muslims. 

It should be clear however that the West is under attack and that Obama has shackled the US security agencies by not allowing them to even use the term islamic terrorist, to profile potential terrorists and to track them in the mosques where they are indoctrinated on theway to becoming jihadist fighters and bombers. Indeed Obama thinks the USA should arm jihadists in Syria, in Turkey and Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood there has just taken delivery of 200 Abrams tanks and 20 more F16's to add to the 200 they already possess.

That the FBI failed even after having had this pair of jihadists delivered to them by the Russian secret service the FSB is an indictment not only upon the FBI but upon the policy of not investigating and suppressing the source of the terror in the madrassas and the mosques. 

The foolish indulgence of islamist fanatics of CAIR and the v in european has to end sometime, hopefully not after the war against the radicalization of muslims has been lost. 

Moderate islam is being extinguished by Saudi Arabia and its western stooges.

 Was it the FBI which bombed the Boston Marathon?
Publication time: 20 April 2013, 14:41
According to an American information portal Natural News, the Boston Marathon could have been blown up by an FBI affiliated American military organization "The Craft".

In an article dated April 19 and entitled "Total media blackout now under way on most likely suspects in Boston marathon bombing", the portal writes in particular:

"In a story that's almost as explosive as the actual bombing itself, the mainstream media is waging a total media blackout on the photos of "The Craft" private military operatives who were present at the Boston marathon bombing.

NaturalNews.com and InfoWars.com have published a multitude of photos which absolutely prove that numerous members of "The Craft" private military contractors were actively engaged in operations at the finish line of the marathon.

This is photographic proof. In real police work, it's called "evidence." But astonishingly, there is not a single mention of "The Craft" in any mainstream media outlet: not NYT, not Washington Post, not LA Times, etc. Not a single word.
This is quickly becoming the biggest media cover-up of all time.

A photo showing a backpack belonging to a member of "The Craft" is identical to the FBI promoted backpack of a Chechen with purported bomb inside


FBI now pushing a false script rather than pursuing real evidence.
The FBI is also deeply engaged in the cover-up, selectively choosing the publicize photos of the patsies who are scripted to take the fall.

As part of its cover-up, the FBI has announced "other photos will not be deemed credible."

Huh? The only photos that count are the ones you say count? How is that an "investigation?"

So even though we have a multitude of photos now showing at least ten men wearing combat uniforms, black backpacks and tactical gear, the FBI has no interest in these people!

Reporter censored at press conference.
Dan Bidondi, an Infowars.com reporter based on the East Coast, attempted to show photos of "The Craft" operatives during a public press conference and was immediately censored by government agents holding up clipboards to block his photos.
Incredible! No photos from the event that are not selected by the FBI are allowed to be shown!

It begs the question: What is so dangerous about these photos of "The Craft" that a nationwide media blackout is being waged?
If there's a simple, innocent explanation for all this, why would it be a problem to show the photos? Beware of any media outlet or government department that tells you "You can't see THESE photos. That's not allowed!"

IHH terrorists are described as 'victims' in Ynet and Times of Israel

The knife wielding terrorists who stabbed this Israeli soldier on the Mavi Marmara are now 'victims'

The Times of Israel is a newly formed news website established by the former editor of the Jerusalem Post. As with the JP much of the content is taken from the news syndicates which overwhelmingly have an anti-Israel agenda. It might be expected that israeli journalists would used this material carefully, as they understand that the serried ranks of foreign journalists in Israel are not there to report anything good about the country, but have been indoctrinated to twist any story to Israel's detriment. The Mavi Marmara is no exception as Reuters doctoring of the above picture shows:

Reuters doctored this photo of the stabbed israeli soldier on Mavi Marmara to take away the blood and the knife held by an IHH terrorist
So a news item about the families of the terrorists killed on the Mavi Marmari is of course begun with a not so subliminal statement about turks having suffered from  'israeli brutality'. The AP report describing as 'victims' those who attacked israeli soldiers fails to mention that the soldiers boarded the Mavi Marmari only with paintball guns at the ready. Israel's soldiers who were attacked by gangs of trained thugs even as they boarded the Mavi-Marmara in furtherance of a legal blockade of Hamas missile smuggling into Gaza were the real victims.

Any story with an anti-Israel slant will be copied to the four corners of the earth by Reuters, AP and AFP.

But when a jewish journalist reporting for an israeli newspaper uses such material, can she not at least reword the misleading first paragraph and title to make it more accurate, to reflect the real facts? After all, Michal Shmulovich claims credit for stories she reposts under her name.

Being a jewish journalist in Israel Michal Shmulovich is certainly aware of how foreign journalists design reports so as to condemn Israel from the beginning.

Last first headlines are a favorite method to have Israel condemned as the aggressor from the very start, even against the facts of the versame article (further explained at BBC watch):

Israel Fires Missile Into Syria After Israeli Soldiers Come Under Attack (AP)

It really is too much to expect an msm journalist to write a headline such as 'Israel responds to attack..........'
That would not have the desired effect.

 Most people will not read a whole story, so the headline and the first paragraph must be made to drive the arraignment of Israel home, even if the true facts are buried somewhere near the end. This is a favorite trick of Reuters and BBC.
By Michal Shmulovich
"Families of the victims of the Israeli raid on the Mavi Marmara in May 2010 are objecting to compensation talks between Turkey and Israel, saying the Jewish state must first fully lift its blockade of the Gaza Strip.
 Below there is an article about how jews have supposedly attacked arabs. We have the accusation against Samarian jews, but only at the end are the palestinian arab accusers being mentioned. Anyone who knows anything about Pallywood knows that nearly all 'incidents' between jews living in Judea and Samaria, 'settlers' are staged, that there is a whole industry of false accusations against Israel. Where there are actual incidents you can bet your bottom dollar that it was begun by arabs. There is at least one new pallywood production each week so it's hard to keep track of them all. Arabs engage in arson of Israeli forests all the time, so why not accuse jews of having done it to arabs? Here they forgot that jews mustn't light fires on the jewish sabbath, the the mass media don't mind.  Anything will be picked up on and published:
HEBRON, June 2, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers from Ramat Yishai settlement in the southern West Bank city of Hebron Saturday set fire to ancient olive trees in Tel Rumeida
What rarely gets reported are the endless attacks on jewish villages, sometimes with the tragic results seen at Itamar with the massacre of the Fogel family. Jews are daily attacked with stones, knives, guns and firebombs. And when they are reported, the arab attackers are described as 'non-violent protesters', an attempt to minimise the significance of the attacks.
"At least seven Palestinian children were injured Sunday south of Nablus after settlers threw stones at them, according to Palestinian sources.

Eight Palestinian girls were lightly injured by settlers from Yitzhar who whisked rocks in their direction and then drove away, AFP reported, quoting an unnamed Palestinian Authority official.
There is an arab war against Israel going on in Judea and Samaria, aided and abetted by the world's press.

Is this soldier really abusing a palestinian child in this picture flashed around the world by the networks? Photographers don't publish what came before
Yep, it's the very same girl, very well trained to provoke the response that will gain the all important response

Give her credit, she does try hard. Watch the video for more, and never again be fooled by Pallywood

Once you've seen this video, you'll understand just who are the aggressors in Judea and Samaria, and the role of the press in building up the lie of arab victimhood. The press and other adults are encouraging the children to work to get that one precious shot of an israeli manhandling a child. That will then be flashed around the world:

AFP, Reuters, BBC and the rest are not interested in the serious attacks on jews, such as that on baby Adele who is fighting for her life after a rock was thrown at her car. Asher Palmer's murder was similarly ignored by the world's press. When jews are attacked that is of no interest. If Israel or jews reply, then that is immediately a news item.

The msm will not publicize the true facts in Judea and Samaria, something that the 'low intensity conflict report' does.

I reproduce the first day of the latest report below:
This is a partial report of the on-going terror attacks against Israel.


Israeli policeman injured in his head near the Lions Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem, woman injured at El Arub, IDF reserve soldier injured in his face by rocks in Hursa Mishulash, IDF soldier injured from rocks in Ba'alin

Shomron Rregion: near Ma'aleh Shomron, near Tapuah, near Emmanuel, Git Avishar Junction, near Peduel, Gilad Highway, Azun.

Ynet similarly reproduced the 'victims' article thus:
Families of the victims of an Israeli raid on a Turkish flotilla on Saturday spoke out against compensation talks between Turkey and Israel, saying the Jewish state must first fully lift its blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Even had the wording been left as is, the journalists involved might have taken a few seconds to mention that the IHH 'charity' which organised the flotilla in the first place is an islamist terror organisation which also carries out turkish foreign policy. IHH has been involved in the chechniyan conflict, and is now involved in gun running to the islamist rebels in Syria.
"Free Syrian Army commanders have told The Times that a boat containing weapons that docked in Syria this week was registered to members of the IHH, which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Michal Shmulovich who is writing for a website that is not known to be anti-Israel, can not claim to be ignorant of the facts, so why does she reproduce anti-Israel propaganda for the Times of Israel?  Does Michal Shmulovich care that she reposts stories designed to besmirch Israel, evidently not.

Is Michal Shmulovich proud of herself? More likely she's proud of her paycheck. Israel go hang.

Shmulovich can however claim that she is not alone, that as Ynet shows, nearly all israeli journalists are cut from the same cloth as herself. When a mosque was burned in Israel, arabs accused settlers, and of course israeli journalists, forgetting all their training, their duty to investigate, rushed to condemn their own country. The facts came out later as I and others wrote about, based mainly on the hard work of one israeli blogger.

The mosque burning had everything to do with arab crime, and nothing to do with Israel.

And Tuba Zangriya was not the only time this has happened. Many other incidents have routinely been blamed on jews, often by the Catholic Church representatives in Israel along with the New (anti-) Israel Fund stooges.

But rabbis and the Israeli President Peres and others had already joined in the chorus of condemnation, using the hated settlers as a scapegoat. They think that hatred of israel deflected onto jews of Judea and Samaria can protect Israel, but they are wrong. The only protection for Israel is to get the truth out about the jihad inspired campaign against it in the world, to inform the non jewish world that the so called 'palestinian'-Israel conflict is the conflict of western civilization against arab radical islamic barbarism.
Those who would bring down Israel have europe and the USA in their sights after the defeat of Israel.

When israeli journalists trouble to go to Judea and Samaria they report from the palestinian arab side showing a bias towards an enemy they don't even take the trouble understand.

Ideologically indoctrinated israeli journalists think that sacrificing jews living in the ancient jewish homelands of Judea and Samaria will bring peace closer. It won't. It will however bring closer the siting of missiles on the hills overlooking the narrow waist of Israel, along the destruction of their homes in Tel-Aviv.

Tell israeli liberals sitting in their cafes on Dizengoff streeet in Tel-Aviv that and they'll think you're mad. Who says that people learn from history. They don't.

So jews are attacked because of the sins of 'occupation' ?

There was no 'occupation' and no Israel in 1929 when arabs massacred and ethnically cleansed the jews of Hebron
If only Israel would be more flexible we are told, then arabs would have no reason to hate jews and Israel. If only Israel gave away some more of its land then arabs would be satisfied and then there would be peace....... These soothing arguments can not explain why jews throughout their history in the islamic world have been humiliated, attacked and had their property stolen by arabs. As we see below, there is always a reason to attack jews, to steal their possessions, to kill them when they resist.

In 1873 the rains were good and jews of Jerusalem stopped buying water from the neighbouring village of Silwan (water drawn from the spring drawn from the well at the end of Hezekiah's tunnel).

This 'grievance' rather than stimulate the water sellers to find a different line of business, or work now justified an increase in robberies in Jerusalem, which in any case were normally directed only at jews. 

When a pious jew Aharon Hershler in 1873 resisted robbers he was shot down, and has been officially recognised as Israel's first pre-state war victim. Throughout the years there would be thousands more victims of arab aggression, even before the establishment of the State of Israel.

And yet arab apologists would have you believe that if the 'occupation' were reversed peace would reign (arabs deliberately don't explain what they mean by that term 'occupation' because for them it is a euphemism for the destruction of Israel. As long as arabs don't explain that term, western pundits will graciously interpret it to mean withdrawal to the 1967 armistice lines, itself a death sentence for Israel, albeit possibly prolonged). There was rarely any peace before 1967, just as there is little now.

And the only time Israel has had a long lasting peace of sorts is when it is strong and assured of itself. Peace did not come after 1973 because of a sudden wish by Sadat for peace with Israel, but because as Mohammed Heikel said in his book Road to Ramadan, because he had the 'fear of war in his bones'. Israel had so thoroughly routed egyptian and syrian forces even after having been surprised on Yom Kippur the holiest day in the jewish calendar when most jews in Israel are in the synagogue praying, that both countries realised that Israel with Sinai, the Golan and Judea and Samaria could not be defeated through war (how wise were the jewish ancestors, who made sure that the Golan Heights and Judea and Samaria were part of Israel's borders.  Even now commanding the heights contributes enormously to security).

Not by conventional war but by offering the prospect of peace could Israel be shrunk. Egypt just like Syria which has had no peace treaty with Israel, yet has observed the peace all these years, could not embark on new wars against Israel.

After describing the heavy rains falling on the city, the first Hebrew paper – The Lebanon – published on February 5, 1873 described multiple complaints lodged with the Ottoman authorities regarding thefts perpetrated by local Arab farmers. It then reported the event of Hershler's death:
"A few days ago, thieves broke into the house of a Jewish man living outside the city walls in Mishkenot Shananim. He then fled his house in pursuit of these thieves, chasing them with his son-in-law, and the thieves fired at them with a rifle, and twelve bullets brought death unto the son-in-law and after four days he died in pain from his wounds at the Rothschild's Hospital. Until today, the identity of the murders is unknown. However, on their way to Jordan, around Jericho, the thieves formed an ambush, killing a farmer and his black servant." 

Hershler is one of the few fallen to have died during the 19th century, and almost all of the fallen from this period are haredi Jews trying to protect other Jews during Arab riots in the city.

First female casualty
The first female casualty of this period is one of the first settlers in Petah Tikva – Rahel Hadad Halevy –who was killed when Arab marauders broke into the settlement with the intent of wreaking havoc and beat her to death.
Arabs like the proverbial leopard and his spots don't change.

Israel sends the strongest message yet to Iran and the world

The new government of Israel has no illusions about the arab world and its so-called 'spring'. And when it comes to Iran Netanyahu now has the political backing he needs at home for the tough decisions he needs to take.

Gone is that disastrous appeaser Barak, a man who brought down a number of humiliations on Israel, whilst never losing confidence in his ability to gain peace through yet another concession and another withdrawal.

When Barak needed to show force he used it not against arabs waging a low intensity war of attrition against jews, who kill jews whenever the opportunity arises, but rather against the jewish community living in our ancient homelands of Judea and Samaria, jews who literally sit on the outpost of western civilisation and defend it from the barbarous arab islamic hordes.

Be in no doubt, if Israel were ever to give up Judea and Samaria ('West Bank'), this would mean the end of Israel, throttled by an indefensible rump of a country with arabs sitting on the heights with missiles to prevent Israel's air force from taking off. Barak should have learned this lesson of 1973 when israeli pilots were decimated by russian missiles.

And in these days of resurgent islam, Israel is only the 'little satan'. Both europe and the USA are not forgotten but not necessarily to be conquered by violent jihad. Demography, the hollowing out of societies through the muslim birth rate after mass immigration is also a legitimate form of jihad, preferable where possible:
Dawa, the call to Islam that by Islamic law must precede jihad, is all-too-often dismissed, as are its manifestations under the rubric of non-violent jihad, simply because this kind of assault does not kill. Instead, it intends “merely” to subjugate.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, told a Toledo, Ohio, Muslim Arab Youth Association convention in 1995, “We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America! Not through the sword, but through dawa.”

With the EU finally realising that there is no way that Iran will give up on its nuclear weapons program, peaceful means have all but been exhausted to stop Iran. Had China, Russia and others not worked to break the sanctions against Iran, then the sanctions might have succeeded, but that has not happened. A new and harsh tone is coming out of Israel, but it is improbable that Israel can now deter the mullas through threats alone. The years of Barak, Olmert and also Netanyahu's last government have served to lull our enemies into a belief that as with the USA, Israel will not defend its essential interests, has not the will to take on Iran.

Nevertheless both Israel's defence minister Yaalon and its pm Netanyahu have on Yom Hazikaron both sent a less than veiled warning to Iran, I believe the harshest to date:
(Netanyahu ) "Today, too, there are those who threaten to annihilate us -- they haven't succeeded in the past, they won't ever succeed", he said.

Netanyahu seemed to be alluding to Iran, which Israel believes is working toward achieving military nuclear capabilities and has issued countless threats to annihilate the Jewish state.

"If we have no choice, we will grasp our swords and go to battle," Netanyahu said, in one of the more sternly worded warnings he has issued to date.

(Yaalon) "Terrorist attacks, the firing of rockets at civilian populations and delegitimization campaigns are the challenges which stand before us in the years to come, they will accompany us for the foreseeable future and they will force us to respond with a firm hand."

"The nuclear program of a country which glorifies Jew-hatred and the destruction of the State of Israel is in its end stages, and if it is not dealt with, it will threaten Israel, the Middle East, and the entire world with viable nuclear weapons.It is now recognised that Iran can build nuclear weapons, has the materials and the knowledge to deliver them, possibly using ballistic missiles."
Only the warning from Netanyahu at the UN, after US President Obama refused to set any red lines for Iran, prevented Iran from entering the final stage of building an atomic weapon. But how long can the world live on tenterhooks, depending on fallible intelligence agencies to give warning when Iran will cross the line to assemble its weapons?
With Iran's latest rejection of the world's generous offers in return for giving up weapons, the nettle must be grasped. The US should act, and failing that, Israel should do what it can with its lesser capabilities to destroy the iranian war machine. If that involves Israel destroying the Iranian economy using an EMP weapon for want of any other alternative, Iran has only itself to blame. It is in any case believed that the Iranians are seriously considering such an attack themselves,

Israel the intellectual and energy superpower

Whilst the USA, europe and the UK spend much of their time nation building the arabs of Judea and Samaria, trying to unify them via massive influxes of cash (much of it wasted by corruption in the two thuggish statelets of  'Palestine' where democratic elections were held one time only), Israel is bounding forwards.

It amazes me how Israel has changed beyond belief in the last 20 years. I can't put it better than this:
Highlighting Israel's emergence as a high-tech superpower and a unique ally of the US, George Gilder, the author of The Israel Test and a high-tech guru, wrote in The Wall Street Journal: "Israel cruised through the recent global slump with no deficit or stimulus package… It is the global master of microchip design, network algorithms and medical instruments…water recycling and desalinization…missile defense, robotic warfare, and UAVs…[supplying] Intel with many of its microprocessors (Pentium, Sandbridge, Atom, Centrino)… Cisco with new core router designs and real-time programmable network processors… [supplying]Apple with miniaturized memory systems for its iPhones, iPods and iPads, and Microsoft with user interface designs for the OS7 product line and the Kinect gaming motion-sensor interface….U.S. defense and prosperity increasingly depend on the ever-growing economic and technological power of Israel. If we stand together we can deter or defeat any foe…. We need Israel as much as it needs us.”
So there we have it, Israel is a major asset for the USA its ally, and of europe if the truth be told. It is not known just how many Nato soldiers have been saved by israeli techonology such as light plastic IED proof pannelling for personnel carriers, or for Israel's sharing its protocols of how to deal with suicide bombers.

Now that Israel has 8 million people, up from less than a million in 1948, four of its universities are in the top 30 in the world when it comes to computer science. Britain with 70 million people has only one university  in the top 30 (Oxford). No european universities, apart from Oxford and Cambridge universities are even to be seen in the top 50!

Is this related to the plague of political correctness endemic in europe? Whereas israelis will question and argue the point, take arguments on their merits, in europe self censorship, and being on message seem to be paramount. When I think of the amount of garbage that poses as scholarship when dealing with the middle east and the arab-Israel conflict, the books written by university professors who have little understanding of the dynamics of the middle east or of its history, but who happily indoctrinate students in a fictitious and forgiving history of the arabs (whilst demonising jews), the dynamics of this become clear. Not for nothing do South Korean students learn the talmud, whereby jewish laws are developed through argument, by taking nothing for granted, by questioning, by listening to the offered opinions, and by demolishing them when necessary through force of referential and applied knowledge.

It is becoming increasingly clear that if you live in europe and wish for a top education, you should look to the USA ivy league, Israel or asia. I would say Israel is the best place to study, in a vibrant society with world class companies all within a few miles of where you are studying. I'm not alone in this opinino. When I was in the Negev desert recently, a canadian Phd student who had just finished his dissertation at the Weizmann institute told me he was looking forward to a nice job in europe.Papers he had published whilst in Israel made him pretty certain that his knowledge was now a saleable commodity.

If you believe in God you might ponder on how the arab world has squandered its oil instead of using it to build modern and  effective societies. Saudi Arabia and the other little UAE potentates are little different to what they were a hundred years ago. Instead of arab beduin conducting raiding parties to find slaves and booty every summer from arab countries to the north, they now use their oil wealth to import their workers to do everything necessary, to live a life of luxury, decadence and laziness. Saudi Arabia is populated by two thirds foreigners. The other arab states are little different. That doesn't mean that they will pay their workers fairly though. That's not part of the culture. Robbery and slave trading extends to not paying your philippines worker, to beating them to death if they complain. If they run away you can always file a complaint with the saudi police that they stole things from you, with the awful sharia punishments that entails.
Without the oil and the foreigners arab societies would collapse, or look like Somalia or Sudan. We don't know how long that will take, but apart from exporting terror and wahabite extremism, the arab and to a large extent the islamic world is good for nothing.

So maybe God said to Israel, "first toil and build your society for 65 years, temper yourselves in the heat of arab hatred, build a strong democratic society which will help you to learn how to deal responsibly and equitably with the riches that have now begun to flow from the Tamar gas field".

Only now is Israel ready to use the gas and the oil to further develop its society, for all its citizens, jew, christian and muslim, rather than be squandered as has been the case with the arabs, and even Britain.

Yom Hazikaron (Remembrance Day) followed by Independence Day

Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu visits grave of his brother Yoni who fell rescuing hijacked jews in the Entebbe operation during Idi Amin's time

Jews and Israel have always longed for peace, but our enemies have never in our history allowed us that. This poignant song by Sarit Hadad doesn't glorify war, just laments the tragic necessity for Israelis to do their duty, to defend our nation in the land of our fathers from those who wish to destroy it. Israel is an optimistic country, that's why it's always willing to go yet another mile for peace with arabs whose only aim is to grab more territory, more concessions from Israel on the way to dismembering and destroying it.

Immediately after remembrance day comes the celebrations of Israel's independence, a miracle that renews itself constantly.

One day the world will celebrate Israel's contribution to the world, just as Israel is presently maligned with endless calumnies spread about it.

Ofra Haza of blessed memory left us many songs to remember her by. 

Israeli invention has changed the world, changed people's lives.

Only last week I found out that the life saving drug someone dear to me has been taking for some years was designed by an israeli jew. Before the drug came out the illness was a certain death sentence. No longer.

Does the Church wants toilets closed for 'non payment of rent' or to harass jewish worshippers?

Jews praying at the Western Wall on Yom Kippur c1920

I don't know the full story, other than the one sided account by the Church  published in the Times of Israel (it was too much for the journalist of the new and obviously  belts and braces Times of Israel to make a phone call or send an email to find out the legal position of the municipality, rather than simply copy and paste a Vatican press release).

Often there will be a whole different complexion after reading the defense, never more so than in Israel. I do not know why the rent hasn't been paid, even if it was due in the first place. But maybe it has something to do with the Church owing an israeli company two million dollars for water that was never paid for since 1996. The Holy Sepulchre church has never paid Israel a penny for water since1967.

This report in the Independent has an archbishop complain that the service was actually stopped, in the middle of negotiations! With such arguments we can now understand why Iran is so upset at sanctions being imposed against it, similarly during negotiations.

The church is one of the largest landowners if not the largest landowner in Jerusalem, and surely it doesn't allow its own tenants to similarly get away with its non payments over this period, or any period for that matter?

In British law, on which israeli law is largely based, he who wishes to take advantage of the law 'must come with clean hands' (no pun intended, but it means for example that a burglar should not be able to sue the owner of a house he was breaking into for falling on an uneven step and breaking his arm).

But just as palestinian arab terrorists like to take advantage of Israel's social security system, murderers even being paid pensions:
 To the layman, it’s preposterous that Israelis would shell out portions of their hard-earned incomes to help recognized terrorists who actively aimed to kill the very taxpayers from whom they then brazenly demand financial support.

This issue isn’t new to our public discourse. Back in 2001, a vehement chorus of disapproval was provoked by revelations that the family of suicide bomber Muhammad Shaker Habeishi, who blew himself up outside the Nahariya train station, killing three people and wounding 94 others, was eligible for a monthly pension of NIS 2,800.

By law there was no way of denying him comprehensive taxpayer-funded assistance. The law, in its obligatory blindness, doesn’t distinguish between terrorists and those whom they conspired to murder. 
So the Catholic Church whilst carrying on a vicious propaganda war against Israel, is always happy to continue the war in Israel's courts:
The Vatican has sued Jerusalem’s city hall for NIS 352,000 for unpaid rent on a public bathroom in the Old City’s Muslim Quarter. According to the report in Maariv, the toilets were built on Church property in 1962 by the Jordanian government, and since passing into Israeli control in 1967, the Jerusalem municipality hasn’t paid the Church for using its property for the public bathrooms.

“You are required to vacate the property immediately and cease entering the property or making any use of it,” the Church plaintiffs wrote. “And you may not allow others to enter the property, to arrange any work or changes.”
The journalist failed to say where the toilets are, but they are probably the ones next to the Western Wall, next to the most holy place in judaism, the Temple Mount where the jewish temple stood (now taken over by the Mosque of Omar), a place where thousands of jewish pilgrims attend daily. I have attended both places on a regular basis throughout the years, and wonder where the Church would like thousands of visiting jews to now do the necessary when the urge takes them?

But that doesn't bother the Church, as it doesn't believe jews have any business at all in that part of the world. Vatican II or otherwise, catholic clerics don't want jews to exist per se, in their eyes jews were 'replaced'. How else could the following nonsense of 'judaisation of Jerusalem' be given pride of place on the Fransciscan website?

"They stressed their common goal of defending Jerusalem and its holy places from every attempt at Judaization, according to a statement from the Palace, especially the Al-Aqsa mosque, the scene of frequent incidents between Palestinians and Israeli security forces.
 The only time Jerusalem was not 'judaised' was when thousands of jews were driven out by arabs, beginning in the pogroms during the British Mandate in 1920,1921,1929, 1936-39 and most devastatingly when jews were ethnically cleansed in 1948 from Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. For thousands of years before 1948 jews, with rare exceptions were the majority of inhabitants of Jerusalem.

The 'incidents' are of course provoked by the Waqf who trot out on a regular basis lies about Israel undermining different parts of the Temple Mount so as to damage the mosques there. Arabs just don't want jews in the area, and the Catholic Church has found a new way to help in this effort, by closing down the toilets for thousands.

The constant war of attrition by the Catholic Church and by Muslim Waqf must be resisted, if jews are to continue to be able to pray at the Western Wall, and to visit the Temple Mount (Israel has for too long acceded to arab demands, firstly in allowing the Waqf custodianship of all of the Temple Mount area, and in preventing jews from praying there, in the most holy site of jews).

Hopefully the israeli court will give this provocative application by the Church the short shrift it deserves.

Yeshiva University rewards anti-semitism

Jimmy Carter sees apartheid in Israel not by his Saudi Arabian financial backers with their real apartheid and gender based violence against women

 Giving an award to anti-semite Jimmy Carter, a man with his hands full of saudi gold really sticks in the gut. That Yeshiva University would even consider doing this shows just how the moral compass is askew in some american institutions of learning.

This corrupted ex-president who has time to write a book on supposed israeli apartheid, to attack Israel incessantly, whilst never once noticing the real religious and gender apartheid in Saudi Arabia, who even paid homage to Hamas prime minister Haniyah whilst Hamas rains rockets down on Israel does not deserve an award from any jewish institution.
Award giving should be left to arab countries to which Jimmy Carter is beholden.

Carter sucking up to Hamas terrorist Meshal

My letter sent to Yeshiva University heads (please email them):


I hope arch antisemite Jimmy Carter has earned his award from your institution by way of some saudi funding, a chair in this or that 'research'.
The saudis know a good antisemitic cause to promote when they see one.

And who better to recommend you to the saudis than Carter, awash with Saudi money for many years, dating back to financing (a "loan") for his peanut farm and latterly funding his so-called 'Human Rights' charitable foundation, which spends much time to lambasting Israel.

Unsurprisingly whilst devoting his efforts against Israel, Carter has nothing to say about Saudi Arabia

" provides Israeli and Palestinian human rights defenders the opportunity to inform senior policymakers through firsthand, credible information about ongoing human rights violations that pose a threat to peace and justice for all residents of the region.
In November 2011, the program also supported public events with Palestinian activists engaged in nonviolent protests against the confiscation of Palestinian land in the West Bank, including a panel discussion with Manal Tamimi, a leader of the weekly protests against settlement encroachment on the village Nabi Saleh."


There is no mention of the constant violence, of stone throwing used by 'non violent' protesters. Nor is there mention of israeli deaths such as that of Asher Palmer

or baby Adele fighting for her life at present, from these stone throwers.

It is interesting that Carter's website carries this description:
Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory" whilst omitting to provide a similar reference for e.g. China, such as 'China and the Occupied Tibetan Lands'. Indeed, Tibet does not even figure as a country that Carter's foundation is interested in.

What a terrible day, when your once venerable institution, Yeshiva University, gives awards to avowed enemies of the jewish people.

Be ashamed.

Israeli police introduce traditional palestinian 'non-violent' methods

Israeli police have noted how msm journalists praise palestinian arabs for using 'non-violent' stone throwing and slingshot methods in addition to more traditional knives, guns and bombs, as a peaceful way to protest.

The Israel police, always interested in improving its methods and its reputation for innovation is therefore expecting that journalists will write some positive reports about the new 'non-violent' policing methods being introduced.
