Intifada This Time

There are undoubtedly certainties in the Middle East.

1. Someone this week will be beheaded in Saudi Arabia.

2. A suicide bomber will kill a few dozen in either Syria, Iraq or wherever.

3. Turkish President Recep Erdogan will have a journalist arrested for making a negative remark about him.

However, the most certain thing that will occur is violence in Israel, the West Bank or Palestine. Once again, the outcome of refusing to negotiate a two state solution has resulted in knife attacks on Jewish Israelis –usually by young men. So, checkpoints are being set up, areas

There is only ONE outcome from the refusal to negotiate a two state solution –DEATH OF THE INNOCENT.

Israel–The Fire This Time

Once again, the world of Israel and Palestinians has become conflict and hatred and violence. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists that force will resolve all problems. However, the past looms large in how conflict between Jewish Israel and Palestinians has played out. At this moment, there are stabbings of Jewish Israelis, there are care sent into Israel Jewish bodies. There are bullets coming from the Israel army which hit both the provoker and the bystander. For every bystander who gets caught in this crossfire and winds up wounded, will emerge another rock thrower or another person ready to stab a Jew.

This is a low-scale Intifada. Unfortunately, for Israel, there is virtually no process that can effectively halt knife stabbings. They can go on and on. There is only ONE solution. Creation of a Palestinian state which will allow Palestinians to handle crime. There is no alternative of removing knives from the world. As Winston Churchill often said: “Jaw Jaw not War War.” THAT is the only solution.

Voice From Iran Gallery

I confess to sort of liking President Rouhani of Iran. Heck, I would not take his job for all the money that Donald Trump claims to have. At home in Iran he has to deal with crazies who make American crazies look sort of normal human beings. For every Ted Cruz we have in this nation he has God knows how many Revolutionary Guards who are dying for a fight. Anyway, President Rouhani came out in support for President Assad in Syria. OK, so he did admit,”this doesn’t mean the Syrian government does not need some reforms, of course, it does.”

Heck, Iran has invested billions and billions of dollars in Syria and who enjoys seeing their investment going down the terrorist tunnels? Mr. President,how about,contact Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and getting both armies together to wipe out someone? Might be the start of a wonderful friendship!

UN Inspections For All

As of June 1st there were six nations that refused to allow UN inspectors into its nuclear facilities. They are: China,India,Pakistan, North Korea, Iran and—-? Now that Iran has agreed to such inspections, how about the last one on this list to accept such action. Oh, the last one is the state of Israel. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continually expresses concern as to whether inspections will prevent Iran from securing atomic bombs. As of this moment, Israel is adamantly opposed to allowing UN folk into its facilities. Israel Atomic Energy Commissioner, Ze’eve Snir warned that the world must be on guard against nations such as Iran who will cheat on inspections.He also warned that Iraq, Syria and Libya had attempted to develop atomic bombs.

Well, we know that Israel has at least 70 atomic bombs and can blast into dust any and all Muslim nations in the Middle East. Now, that Iran has agreed to inspection, how about demanding that Israel join the club for peace and security?

Note To Israel Lobby

It has come to my attention that the main lobby for the Israel government is violently opposed to any nation–other than Israel, that is, being able to obtain nuclear weapons. I have encountered full page ads warning of dire results if Iran ten years from now gets a nuclear weapon. I have heard lectures from Rabbis about the fact that Israel is “surrounded” and in fear of its very existence. Yep, Israel really has worries with Jordan and Egypt and Saudi Arabia–all deeply involved in dealing with refugees, Islamic terrorist groups operating their nation, yep, they are a real threat –but not to Israel.

Meanwhile, back at the OK Corral, Kim Jon-un, the chubby little dictator of North Korea is boasting that he DOES have atomic weapons and is preparing to develop a missile with a nuclear warhead that could be fired at the US. Does that REAL THREAT bother AIPAC? Of course not, they want us to worry about nonexistent threats to Israel. Kim Jong-un is a nut case with a possible nuclear weapon, how about AIPAC worrying about reality?

What Israelis Really Want

American Jews have been brain-washed for years by AIPAc into believing that Jewish Israelis– twenty percent of Israel is composed of Muslims and Christians–agree with the policies now running rampant in their country. A recent poll by Huddish revealed:

64% suppor the right of Conservatives and Reform Jews to convert to Judaism.

75% support transit on the Sabbath.

64% support the right of civil marriage.

The conclusion of this survey is: “There is clearly a growing solid overwhelming majority of Israelis who are unhappy about the way religion and state are linked and impacting the lives of individuals.” Of course, to the Haredi there is need for more religious control.

The Bad Deal??

Voices of doom insist the agreement with Iran is the first step toward destruction and chaos in the Middle East. Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who gave over $150,000,000 to Republicans in 2012 has now become the center of wisdom for Republicans who dislike the agreement. Of course, if Sheldon said he was for the deal, then every Republican candidate would be shouting their support. Sheldon did offer an alternative to the current agreement. He suggests dropping an atomic bomb in a desert region of Iran to show we mean BUSINESS!

Despite all the shouts and anger about negotiations with Iran the opposition has yet to offer an alternative. Mort Klein of the Zionist Organization of America is for Ted Cruz: “a man who tells the truth.” Where have American Jews wound up? Defending a man who is against working people, against women rights, against health care, and so on and so on. Yes, he is a man who tells the truth–at least the truth as to what he believes in.

Closer To Iran Treaty

Throughout America Jewish groups such as AIPAC are spreading fear and hate in order to halt a major step toward peace in the Middle East. Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Senator Chris Coons of Delaware are the latest to tell AIPAC to mind its own business and allow the world to gain peace in the Middle East. Those opposing the Iran agreement ignore this is NOT an American agreement.It is an agreement that is supported by six major nations. If the fear mongers have their way, the United States would have difficulties in the past reaching any agreement with another nation. We would become ignored on the stage of international diplomacy.

What if America follows the Bibi Netanyahu fear?

1. The US would have to attack Iran because it would resume its quest for the atomic bomb.

2. Russia and China would end sanctions and sell anti-missile defense material to Iran.

3. Hezbollah in Lebanon would fire at least 50,000 missiles toward Israel. Even if 95% were destroyed,at least three thousand would hit targets in Israel causing the death of thousands. THIS is the end result of AIPAC suggestions.

Din Rodef Means Death

The nation of Israel has been struggling for the past decades as to who or what it is. The original dream of Israel was to be a symbol in the Middle East of a democratic society in which people of all religions could live in peace and harmony. Somehow,along the road to this goal religious extremists entered the picture and obtained power. It was a Jewish terrorist who murdered Israel Prime Minister Rabin, and it is Jewish gun men who use their power to deny rights to Muslims and Christian farmers and workers.

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner made clear the other day that anyone who quarrels with the chief rabbinate of Jerusalem is subject to din rode.That means in English, the right of true believers to resort to force to kill him. The state of Israel has now reached a point in which there are citizens claiming the right of murder for those who oppose religious leaders. What ever happened to the dream?

Does Obama Hate Jews, Israel and So On?

I continually encounter Jews who insist the following:

1. Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

2. President Obama hates Jews.

3. President Obama hates Israel.

4.President Obama wants Iran to wipe out Israel.

Then again,there is the record of President Obama

1. He has numerous Jews surrounding him every day.

2. Under his administration Israel has been given $15 billion in military aid.

3. Under his administration the Dome was built which can knock down incoming missiles.

4. Secretary of State John Kerry has spent months attempting to assist Israel to reach an agreement with Muslim leaders.

If such actions represent, HATE, please get Obama to hate me!
