Building Blocks Of Hate

The government of Israel is being forced to construct more settlement homes in the West Bank due to actions by Palestinians. Let me make clear to one and all the Israel government would never unilaterally construct new housing on the West Bank, but they were forced into such action because the Palestinian government led by President Abbas decided to form a unified government which included Hamas. Prime Minister Netanyahu made clear that he would never decide to engage in building if not for the new alliance. I am a bit confused, during the past ten years when Palestinians were NOT united, settlement houses went up and up and up. In other words, we Israelis build settlement homes if you are not united, and even more if you are. This clarifies the situation.

Reasons to welcome the new unity:

1. Once a part of the Palestinian government, Hamas becomes part of a government which recognizes the state of Israel.
2. If an agreement is reached between President Abbas and the Israel government, Hamas becomes part of that agreement.
3. Hamas leaders understand that if they engage in terrorism their agreement is null and void.

Potential Suicide Bomber Caught

It has been several years since any Palestinian has engaged in the act of being a suicide bomber. A man wearing a belt of explosives was discovered at the Tapuah junction near Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. There are two key words in what I wrote-suicide and settlements. According to the original United Nations plan to separate the old Ottoman Empire province of Palestine, areas were set aside for Jews and areas were set aside for Muslims and Christians. The “settlements” are situated in what was supposed to be areas for Muslims and Christians. I do understand the Israel government rarely, if ever, notes that Jewish settlements are in areas for Muslims and Christians.

We thank God no one got killed. Just remember, that when a suicide bombers explodes self, not only Jews may die, but so may other innocent people–Muslims and Christians. There is only one solution that makes any sense–create an independent Palestine centered in what we term, the West Bank. THAT is the only sensible plan leading to peace for -Jews, Muslims and Christians.

WALL Of Shame

Pope Francis is in the Middle East and currently in Israel. As he drove through Jerusalem, the pontiff halted by the Wall which separates Jews from Palestinians. He halted and uttered some words of peace. “In this birthplace of the Prince of Peace, I wish to invite you, President Mahmoud Abbas together with President Shimon Peres to join me in heartfelt prayer to God for the gift of peace. I offer my home in the Vatican as place for this encounter of prayer.” The Wall that he mentioned if for every Jew in the world a Wall of Shame because its presence symbolizes failure on the part of Muslims and Jews to work in a cooperative manner for the cause of peace. Wall separate, they do not join conflicting peoples in peace.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could only argue that the Pope’s visit was “an opportunity to present to the world the real Israel-the advanced, modern, and tolerant Israel.” His words simply reflect the problem. Seizing land from Palestinians is NOT an act of tolerance of that of peace. Israel is home to both Jews and Muslims, thus Israel is NOT a Jewish state, anymore than mainly Christian America is a Christian state. Israel IS a democratic state and must behave as one-for all who dwell in it!

Bloomberg Says No To Million

I am always fascinated how big money invariably drifts into the hands and pockets of those who possess big money. It makes one wonder if there really is a God. How come if you have a billion, then YOU win the million prize? It makes one wonder if God is really stand up comic who wants to tease the audience. Former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg won something called the “”Genesis Prize” and was given a check foe $1 million by the Genesis Foundation. The award goes to those who are into something termed, “Jewish values.” Anyway, Bloomie is returning the $1 million so it can be redistributed to ten people who will do something about poverty or thee environment or something.

I am Jewish. I am against poverty. I am for the environment. I do possess some Jewish values. And, I sure as hell will appreciate the money. So, how come the dough doesn’t head my way or that of some poor schmuck who is trying to exist on $7.40 an hour? I guess we lack the right Jewish value–having a billion dollars?

Obama -The Clueless President

It increasingly is apparent that President Barack Obama has never devoted his intellectual focus upon developing a foreign policy theory. After World War II, the Containment Policy, initially developed by George Kennan, became the basis of how American foreign policy was conducted. The premise of this theory was to AVOID war with the Soviet Union and allow time to slowly, but surely, cripple that nation and lead to the arrival of a new group of leaders who understood the economic weaknesses of Communism. The war in Vietnam was a mistake because instead of containment, it was aggressive. Actually, from 1945 until its collapse the only war engaged in by the Soviet Union was the war in Afghanistan. Today in 2014, what is the foreign policy theory of Barack Obama? The answer is he lacks any guiding theory of acton.

Example, Iraq. Upon assuming office, President Obama made clear he wanted American forces to leave Iraq. That was a strategy, but that was not part of a theory of foreign policy. Prior to leaving the Obama administration allowed Nouri al-Maliki to gain power. In the hurry to depart, we left behind a man who hated Sunnis, drove any Sunni leader from power, and left Iraq to become the scene of a sectarian civil war in which Sunnis and Shiites killed one another. One result of lack of policy was allowing al-Qaeda to return to power as the defender of Sunnis against Shiites.

Ironically, due to lack of an Iraq policy, Iran stepped in to become the champion of their fellow Iraq Shiites. Yes, American troops are gone and now Iran is the main ally of Iraq due to its Maliki connection. Yes, it was important to depart, the issue was–when and how? President Obama never grasped the importance of those questions and today Iraq increasingly is becoming a failed state.

Israel Supporters Ally With Islamic Militants!

Congressional Democrats and Republicans and the government of Israel are united in opposition to efforts of those seeking to end conflict with Iran and create a stable Middle East. Benjamin Netanyahu is undoubtedly the best friend any Iranian terrorist could seek in the world. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is fighting Islamic militants in his own nation in order to bring Iran into a peaceful place in the world and end concerns about nuclear weapons. He recently was attacked by Fatemieh Alia of the Islamic Revolution Resistance Front for giving into the West on nuclear weapon issues. “Since the beginning of the drafting of the final nuclear agreement which Iran is scheduled for 13 May this year, the analysts, the university students, the elites, and the university professors wish to express their worries to the Iranian nuclear negotiators.” The “We’re Concerned” group is composed of Islamic terrorists and militants.

American congressmen are expressing the same doubts about President Rouhani. American Congressmen are doing everything in their power to disrupt negotiations. In other words, our leading American Jews are presently in an alliance with the Islamic Revolution Resistance Front!!

Kerry’s Humble Apology

It required less than twenty four hours before the Israel lobby forced Democrats and Republicans to demand an apology from Secretary of State John Kerry for warning that unless Israel ceases its current policies which deprive Muslim and Christian citizens in Israel of their rights, the result would be an apartheid state. He humbly apologized and said that perhaps other words should have been employed. Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer of California, who is Jewish, was furious and declared: “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and any linkage between Israel and apartheid is nonsensical and ridiculous.”

OK, Barbara, how would you feel if the following was legal in the United States of America?

1. Land owned by Jews could be seized by the Federal government on grounds it was needed for national defense purposes.

2. The government insisted that all citizens pledge allegiance to the Christian United States of America.

3. Jews were not allowed to hold important positions in the armed forces.

4. Each day in Congress, members yelled and screamed that Jews were terrorists and should be expelled from the country.

Reality Time For Israel

Among the start realities of American politics is that no political leader is ever to speak honestly about behaviors of Israel politicians. If they dare to speak openly and honestly, then the Sheldon Adelson’s in America will pour millions into the coffers of their opponents. Among the expressions no American politician can ever use is to refer to Israel as a potential “apartheid state.” At a recent meeting of the Trilateral Commission, Secretary of State John Kerry allowed his inner feelings to emerge when he said: “A two state solution will be clearly underscored as the only alternative. Because a unitary state winds up being an apartheid state with second class citizens-or it end sup being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.”

Right wing pundits like William Kristol are demanding the resignation of Kerry. He dared to speak reality. Let us imagine for a moment that an American president demanded that nations of the world recognize the United States of America as a CHRISTIAN STATE! I wonder what would be the reaction of William Kristol to become a second class citizen in his own country? Jews can NOT live in a country in which some people lack equal rights. That classification violates the entire history of the Jewish people.

Muslim Leader Blasts Holocaust Episode

During the past eight years the leaders of Israel have complained and denounced former Iran President Ahmadinejad for denying that the Holocaust ever happened. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is furious at those who are “Holocaust deniers” because their refusal to accept the murder of millions of Jews is evidence they seek the murder of millions of Jews. Palestinian President Abbas, during a meeting with a Rabbi, made clear that he considered the Holocaust a terrible crime. He described the Holocaust as a “heinous crime” and among the worst to “have occurred against humanity in the modern era.” Of course, President Rouhani of Iran expressed warm regards for Jews in public.

So, Palestinian leaders are denouncing the Holocaust. And, the response from PM Netanyahu is–SILENCE. In other words, if an Arab leader denounces the existence of the Holocaust, then Netanyahu is furious and uses their words as evidence Muslims hate Jews, but when an Arab leader denounces the Holocaust itself, silence. This example is simply evidence that Prime Minister Netanyahu does not seek peace and reconciliation with Muslims. His goal is clear-transform the West Bank into a part of Israel and end peace forever!

Negotiate With The Devil?

In June, 1941, German armies invaded the Soviet Union, a Communist nation whose goal was the destruction of capitalist governments. Someone asked British Prime Minister Winston Churchill what would be his stand against allying with a Communist government given his past history of opposing Communism. Churchill responded with words to this effect: I will work with any government if the end result is survival of the British empire. Churchill was also the one who argued, ‘jaw, jaw, not war, war.” In other words, it was incumbent upon a leader to work with any government, any opposing leader if the end result was peace in the world. Palestinian President Abbas announced an agreement with his enemy, Hamas, and this resulted in claims of horror from the Israel government. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The government of Israel will not hold negotiations with a Palestinian government that ids backed by Hamas, a terrorist organization that calls for Israel’s destruction.”

1. For over fifty years conservative and liberal American presidents negotiated with the Soviet Union, a nation that ostensibly wanted the end of capitalist nations.

2. Since the 1970s, the United States has been negotiating with Communist China, a nation that was allied with North Korea during the Korean war that resulted in the deaths of over 25,000 Americans.

3. Among the original leaders of Israel were men and women who participated in terrorist groups including those which blew up the King David hotel and killed dozens.

Negotiation has to do with today, not with yesterday. In a world with atomic bombs, we must always negotiate and do not have the right to refuse. Who knows, getting Hamas into working for peace with Israel!!
