Livni: Putting Israel In The Shadow Of Death
May 28, 2009
Only 7 months after Tzipi Livni failed to form her own coalition government, she's putting together an official “opposition government” or a "shadow cabinet." No biggie, you say? After all, there should be firm alternatives to the policies of PM Netanyahu, right?
This is a critical time for the survival of the Jewish State. If there was ever a time for solidarity, it's now...
Why? What's the big whoop? Playing in the shadows with a pretend (and contentious) government sends the most perilous message to the enemy: We're divided, so come conquer us.
And they will...
Olmert was the first one to give a paper tiger facade to the Arab world by humiliating the second most powerful military in the world: The IDF (the US being the first, of course). In simple terms: If you shrink, don't blink, or you will surely sink. As the enemy is always looking for the chinks in your armor in order to compromise and conquer...why present it to them on a silver platter?
Is Livni aware of this? You bet...this lady is no slouch...she entered the IDF in 1976 and served until 1979. She earned the rank of lieutenant and served as an instructor at the officers’ training school. And she was a Paris agent for Mossad (Israel’s overseas intelligence agency) in the early 80s when it conducted a series of missions to kill 'Palestinian' terrorists in European capital cities (ah, the good old days).
Honestly, I would have more respect for her if she would do what she used to: Put country before political expediency.
But that's not the character trait that's being revealed at this time...
This 'shadow government' idiocy is looking less like solid, reasonable opposition, and more like sour grapes. Israel's survival is of greater importance than who is 'queen for a day'. If Livni sincerely cares about her nation (and I believe, in her heart of hearts, she does), then stop the feckless, backstabbing contention and stand with BiBi...because if you don't...the land, upon which you and your countrymen finally stand, will be shared with the fishies in the Mediterranean Sea...
Shalom through strength...
It's BiBi Or Bust!
May 26, 2009
It is unequivocal by now that Obama has no intentions of addressing the problem and threat Iran poses. He neither has the spine nor the testicular fortitude to make the hard decisions that must be made in order to protect the citizenry of America...or for that matter, freedom-loving people globally.
So what is left for free people to do when faced with such dire prospects as Iran has presented to the world, on numerous occasions? There is only one solution...
Obama has clearly relinquished his position as leader of the free world by refusing to deal with Iran's threats. So it is now left to PM Benjamin 'BiBi' Netanyahu to do what must be done in order to foil Iran's plans and send an unambiguous message to terrorists and terrorist states that free people will not allow tyrants, thugs, or mullahs to take away the liberty that God has given to all men.
Will BiBi perform the actions necessary to hinder, or at least postpone the mad mullah's machination?
Well, between O and BiBi...there is no contest...
BiBi was born in Tel Aviv, raised in Jerusalem, spent his adolescent years in the US, but returned to Israel to fulfill his military obligations. Netanyahu volunteered for an elite commando unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and participated in several daring operations, which included the Beirut Airport Operation during the War of Attrition and the release of hostages from a hijacked Sabena Airlines aircraft at Ben-Gurion Airport, an operation in which he was wounded. He was discharged from the IDF after 6 years, following the Yom Kippur War, with the rank of captain.
Obama was born...well, it's reported he was born in Hawaii, but no credible evidence has yet surfaced to confirm this fact. He was raised in Hawaii and Jakarta, Indonesia by his mother and stepfather. He later attended Columbia University and Harvard University graduating with degrees. He chose not to serve his country in the Armed Forces. But instead chose to be a community organizer (a teacher with ACORN) and to pursue a political career.
BiBi, by his choices, has proven that he will put his own life on hold for the sake of his country and countrymen. Obama, in contrast, chose to pursue self-interest over self-sacrifice.
So, will BiBi make the unpopular yet crucial decision to attack Iran's nuclear facilities?
Well, just in case the Arab world, and their liberal ilk, think Israel is down for the count...I believe the Jewish people (by the grace of the G-d of Israel) will "rise from the ashes of the phoenix"...and rock your world...while preserving ours.
Shalom through strength...
Genocide Of The Jews...With Our Help
May 21, 2009
With all the offers Israel has made over the years, and the PA has rejected...the question arises: What exactly is it that the 'Palestinians' and the Arab world wants?
It's certainly not land, they've been offered everything but the kitchen sink and turned it down. It's not money...billions have passed through their corrupt little digits...most squandered and much used to attack innocent Jews.
So what do they want?
A careful look at their requests can prove very revealing...
-Who lives in the settlements? The Jewish people.
-What is attacked? The settlements.
-What does the PA always request be removed or prevent the building of? The settlements.
-What happens when Jews accidentally enter the 'Palestinian' areas? They are killed in cold blood.
So...in essence, they want a Jew-free Gaza, West Bank...and if possible...a Jew-free Israel (or as they call it 'Palestine')! It's a silent genocide...
I just wonder what the response would be if the Israelis demanded an Arab-free Jerusalem? The screams of hatred spewed toward the Jews would be heard globally. But what of these Jew-free zones demanded by the PA, the Arab world and the West? No one seems to have a problem with them. Obama (the first pro-Arab president) tows the genocidal line, insisting upon the cessation of settlements. Even the Israeli government has bought into this furtive genocide of its people by agreeing to remove settlements.
We can no longer call ourselves civil, compassionate or humane if we do not put an end to this second, yet clandestine attempt at the elimination of the Jewish people.
The Israelis have always desired shalom...but not the kind of peace that Hitler wanted...or the PA: The last breath of every Jew on earth.
Think about it...
Shalom through strength...
BiBi: Forget Talks, You're Flying Solo
May 20, 2009
Talk is cheap...an oft used cliché. But it was never truer than at the much anticipated meeting between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "BiBi" Netanyahu...
O, as usual, schmaltzing it up in his pedantic style (I just loathe his verbal cadence...it's so calculated and condescending)...empty rhetoric that adds nothing to the discourse. And BiBi, was way too conciliatory...I kept thinking "BiBi, get your tongue off his boots!"
So what came out of these 'talks'? Bupkis, nada, rien, nothing!
O, who thinks all things became new when he entered the White House, blathered on about a focus on efforts to create a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. But without an agreement that the PA would accept Israel's right to exist, this will never happen. Netanyahu hoped to gain Obama's support for stalwart action on Iran...but it ain't happening. O said he would give Iran no deadline, seek talks with the former Persian Empire and, if Iran didn't respond to diplomacy, he would not take 'sanctions' off the table?
Say what? Sanctions? Been there, done that...empirical evidence proves that a slap on the wrist of sanctions has never worked. Walking softly will do nothing...but getting whacked with a big stick gets results every time...
Will the US help logistically support the Jewish State?
Well, here is yet another example that talk is cheap...O may have gone out of his way to affirm the U.S.-Israel alliance at the meeting...but his actions prior to the meeting speak volumes to the contrary...
According to Anne Bayefsky, of Eye On The UN, Obama has shown his true colors by his approval of the following action:
- Agreeing with this statement from the UN Security Council: “The Security Council supports the proposal of the Russian Federation to convene, in consultation with the Quartet and the parties, an international conference on the Middle East peace process in Moscow in 2009.”
- And that statement also makes commendatory indications to the 2002 Arab “Peace” Initiative. A Saudi proposal to force Israel to withdraw to vulnerable borders prior to what most Arab countries still deem to be a final shove down the road...to Israel's ultimate ruin.
Now the question is: Does Israel have our pragmatic support, as in all times past? Tragically I believe the answer is unequivocally NO.
The US, led by the pro-Arab Obama administration (hey, has the State Dept. now taken up residency in the Oval Office?), will not help Israel by confronting Iran, or supplying Israel with strategic support in the certain event that Israel must confront Iran militarily. O's words are cheap talk, his actions show a contemptible walk...and Israel will inevitably have to fly solo.
As in myriad times past...Israel will be left to themselves...and the G-d Who protects them.
Pope: Visiting Danger On Future Generations
May 18, 2009
Pope Benedict XVI is visiting Israel. And hopes are that he will bring the peace that Christianity offers...the kind that does not compromise truth. Well, if you're hoping for that, your hopes will be dashed...
The Pope called on "all those responsible to explore every possible avenue in the search for a just resolution of the outstanding difficulties, so that both peoples may live in peace in a homeland of their own within secure and internationally recognized borders."
I have to ask, has the Pope been that sheltered that he is unaware of the ongoing terror attacks that Israel has had to endure for years? From that statement, one would assume that he is unaware of who the historical owners of the land are (Jews), and oblivious to the terror attacks perpetrated upon innocent Jews daily by the PA and their ilk. But the Pope is a very learned and intelligent man.
So is the Pontiff confused? Perhaps this further information can help answer that question...
In a meeting Thursday, PM Binyamin 'BiBi' Netanyahu said of his conversation with the Pope, “I asked him as a moral figure to make his voice heard loudly and continuously against the declarations coming from Iran about their intentions to destroy the state of Israel...It cannot be that at the start of the 21st century, a state arises that says it intends to destroy the Jewish state and that a very strong and aggressive voice isn’t heard condemning this phenomenon...Blocking the Iranian danger will advance peace...We want peace with the Palestinians, but one that brings security. We do not seek to rule a different people, but we also do not want an Iranian-backed terror state to develop beside us and endanger Israel.”
In essence, he asked the Pontiff to denounce the Iranian regime.
The Pope's response? The Pope replied by stating that he believes that the moderate elements in the region should be strengthened and the extremist ones should be fought. He added that as pope, he leads the global battle against anti-Semitism.
Really? Nice soft-shoe there...
Then the blatant anti-Semitic statements spewed by Ahmadinejad must be condemned and the regime, run by the mad Mullahs, must be denounced plain and simple. Why the detour? Has the PC-bug bitten the Vatican?
No matter the reason for the verbal diversion, by ignoring the obvious the Pontiff is endangering current and future generations in the region. Ignoring truth, and the facts on the ground, is doing a grave injustice to the innocent in Israel, as well as the 'Palestinians' used by their leaders as pawns in their bloodthirsty battle against the Jewish State.
Honestly...I'm not sure the Jewish Carpenter, Who started the church, would be pleased with such cowardice or disingenuousness.
Shalom through strength...
Obama: Exposing The Chinks In Our Armor
May 15, 2009
Well, it seems that the Bush Doctrine of not negotiating with terrorists is dead. And here's the evidence...
Iran is categorized as a terrorist state for their funding of terrorist activities and terrorist groups (i.e. Hezbollah, etc.) The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is a terrorist organization.
These are established facts.
So, our Bootlicker-in-Chief has been a busy bee this Spring...he arranged the release of US journalist Roxana Saberi with an exchange deal where Washington agreed to free 4 senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards intelligence officers arrested in Irbil, northern Iraq in January 2007. Tehran calls them "diplomats", but they ran terror operations and covert arms supplies from Iran to Sunni and al Qaeda insurgent webs.
Bravo, Barry...now that's bootlicking at its best...
Only problem is that when you let an enemy, such as this, know you can be bought and sold...you expose weakness to be compromised, and you endanger the national security of our entire nation. But Barry, in all his vast ivy league knowledge, didn't know that--but, of course, he would have learned that if he had actually served in the armed forces...but he didn't...
Barry has made one of the worst mistakes that can be made: Showing the enemy the chinks in your armor.
Look for more kidnappings to follow...these are all tests of our armor...and Barry is putting a dangerous model on display.
Shalom through strength...
Here's A 'Change': Just Say Thank You
May 14, 2009
Personally, I've had it. The disdain for the military from the left, whether it be the current occupant of the White House and his ilk, the media, or elitists from Hollywood to your local college campus...is beyond egregious...for me, it borders on treasonous...
The hatred for our troops is so deeply seated in these ungrateful wretches, when they think they are honoring our warriors, they just insult them all over again...case in point: Hollywood gave an Academy Award for a documentary about the military--committing acts of torture around the world...
Gee, thanks for the encomium...
Let's also recall the Commander-in-Chief, who never thought it necessary to join the ranks--accused our troops, on the campaign trail, of "air-raiding villages and killing civilians"...
When your commander thinks you blow, what's left?
And let's not leave out those 'open-minded', 'tolerant' profs from our examples...their contributions of loathing the military have been too great to number...but let's look at one glaring example, for fun: These fraudulent facilitators of greater knowledge have, in the recent past, tried feverously to block military recruiters from campuses. The result was the people speaking vociferously through their representatives and the Solomon Amendment (1995-97), which denied federal funds to institutions of higher education that denied military recruiters access to campuses or the establishment of ROTC programs. The profs didn't learn their lesson...they challenged it all the way to the Supremes...but, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the Solomon Amendment did not infringe on the First Amendment rights of schools that objected to it.
Awww...hatred can only take you so far...but not far enough to kick the ones protecting you...huh?
Here's a paradigm for the current administration: Israel, whose military is attacked almost daily--always states before an investigation, that the Israeli Military is the most ethical military in the world. Now, I greatly respect the IDF, but on ethics...the US Military is number one. But our government has an aversion to stating such truth. Instead, they opt to apologize for our troops behavior before any facts are known concerning an incident.
Now, there's an all-time morale booster for the guys!
I'd like to ask all these 'patriots' what they have sacrificed for our great nation? Our troops, current and former, have given up their freedoms to protect ours. Some have given precious time. Some have given up careers and dreams. Some their physical health...and some their very lives. All so we can enjoy the blessings that those liberties produce.
Lesson for all Libs: I know it's a foreign term in your vernacular...but instead of spewing your bile at our heroes...try two simple words: Thank you.
It may not easily roll off your treasonous tongues...but the troops deserve it.
The Hashemite Kingdom IS The 'Palestinian' State
May 11, 2009
Here's a riddle: What do you call a country where almost 100% of the population is comprised of 'Palestinians'? A 'Palestinian' State, right?
Well, that describes the Kingdom of Jordan. Jordan has a demographic that is 70% 'Palestinian'. Now, as Israel does, if the Bedouin population is incorporated in that category, the figure rises to 100% 'Palestinian'. With these kinds of stats, I think the PA should share in the Kingdom rule...don't you?
But I'm not thinking King Abdullah will allow that to happen...because it was tried before...and his daddy halted that goal...
September 1970 is known as 'Black September' in Arab history and also as the "era of regrettable events." It was a month when Hashemite King Hussein of Jordan moved to crush the autonomy of 'Palestinian' organizations (like the Palestinian Liberation Organization [PLO]) and restore his monarchy's rule over the nation. The violence resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, the vast majority being 'Palestinian' (approximately 30,000). The armed clash ended July 1971 with the ejection of the PLO and thousands of 'Palestinian' miscreants to Lebanon, where they reeked havoc on infidels (Lebanese Christians), and since then have monopolized the country, causing Christians there to cower through appeasement.
Now, Jordan has lots of land (45,495 sq mi, to be precise). They have a population comprised of mostly so-called Palestinians. So why the cry for a 'Palestinian' State?
Well, because like most of the Arab world...they have no concern for these 'refugees'...even though they are Muslim brothers. They are using them as leverage to attain their long-desired goal: The elimination of the State of Israel. And if they would give the 'Palestinians' land on which to reside, the 'Palestinians' would lose their victimhood status, and the Arab world would not only lose their entertainment (terrorism against Jews and other 'infidels'), but their major tool to rid the Middle East (and the world) of Jews, would be gone.
Truth be told, 'Palestinians' are really Jordanians. Here's an informative statement made to the UN by Israeli Ambassador Yehuda Blum on December 3, 1979:
"Let me remind the Jordanian representatives of the record. Between 1922 and 1946, Trans-Jordan remained an integral part of Mandated Palestine. In 1946, it became the independent Palestinian Arab State in that area. When King Abdullah came to the Jericho Conference in December 1948, which was attended by Palestinian Arabs west of the Jordan River, he was crowned 'King of Palestine'. Abdullah, in fact, wanted to rename his country 'The Kingdom of Palestine'. King Hussein, in his memoirs, indicates clearly that Trans-Jordan was arbitrarily siphoned off from the rest of Mandated Palestine. Crown Prince Hassan of Jordan, in the Jordanian National Assembly on February 2, 1970, stated unambiguously: 'Palestine is Jordan and Jordan is Palestine. The nation is one and the land is one.'"
Additionally, another by the current PM, Binyamin 'BiBi' Netanyahu, given to the UN on December 11, 1984:
"Clearly, in Eastern and Western Palestine, there are only two peoples, the Arabs and the Jews. Just as clearly, there are only two states in that area, Jordan and Israel. The Arab State of Jordan, containing some three million Arabs, does not allow a single Jew to live there. It also contains 4/5 of the territory originally allocated by this body's predecessor, the League of Nations, for the Jewish National Home. The other State, Israel, has a population of over four million, of which one sixth is Arab. It contains less than 1/5 of the territory originally allocated to the Jews under the Mandate.... It cannot be said, therefore, that the Arabs of Palestine are lacking a state of their own. The demand for a second Palestinian Arab State in Western Palestine, and a 22nd Arab State in the world, is merely the latest attempt to push Israel back into the hopelessly vulnerable armistice lines of 1949."
They ('Palestinians') are in the land that is rightfully theirs: Jordan...so, it's time to leave the Jewish State alone. We all know the truth. It's time to end this charade. Jordan IS Palestine. Period.
Shalom through strength...in this world, it's the only way.
Pulling The Plug On Pakistan
May 7, 2009
There's a lot of discussion of late concerning Pakistan. In the recent past, our relationship was tenuous at best...the former Pakistani leader was paid by us to help in the War on Terror...but did he and the new President Ali Asif Zardari aid in this endeavor? A resounding NO.
And this rogue government is still demanding money in exchange for no help. The Taliban still runs free in the tribal mountain areas, they continue to allow bin Laden to hole up in the tribal areas, and they sponsor terror attacks on their neighbor (and our friend) India.
So what's a democracy to do?
There have been many suggestions, including further money and appeasement (O favors this one), but the most sound proposal has come from Ralph Peters. He suggests that we leave Pakistan to India. That indeed is brilliant...
Why you ask? Allow me to elucidate...
India is a democracy which borders the Middle East.
We have a significant commercial relationship with the Subcontinent.
It is nuclear capable and has an army of about 200 million men (much like China). They may not be technologically advanced in their military but neither is Pakistan...and they dwarf Pakistan's military by a ratio of 3:1.
They understand the mindset in Pakistan and if attacked by the Pakistanis, they would be damaged, but Pakistan would be utterly destroyed by India...and Pakistan (with all its loonies) knows this.
So India is the perfect watchdog for this rogue state.
And apparently India thinks so as well...Indian elite troops, Kharga Corps, are being trained by Israeli military instructors in India and Israel in the skills of operating in Taliban and al Qaeda dominated areas, perhaps yet with biological/radiological weapons.
Nicknamed "Hindi Shakti" (Indian Power), these select Indian units received specialist instruction from Israeli elite and commando forces in tactics for engaging in combat maneuvers behind enemy lines.
We have poured money into the Pakistani coffers for too long, of which some has been turned around into weapons used against our brave troops. Time to 86 this 'brilliant' strategy...
India has tasted of the fruits of freedom and they like it...so they can be trusted to keep the zealots at bay...and by sheer numbers, and now by military tactics...they can handle the tribal loons without our concern.
It's time to pull the plug on Pakistan...and slide it on over the Subcontinent....our only friends in the Middle East (Israel) have made sure they're ready.
Shalom through strength...
Real Change: How To Kick Your Friends, While Kissing Your Enemies
May 4, 2009
How many times have you heard this one: Israeli occupation is the reason there is no peace in the Middle east?
Well, ostensibly, O and his top advisers are confident of this falsehood, and that the 'Palestinian' problem is the main obstacle to accommodating Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran. Intentionally blind to Israel's assertion of US support for its security in a hostile region, Obama is planning to pressure the Netanyahu government hard for instant engagement on the Middle East conflict without further impediment. Sec. of Defense Robert Gates and National Security Adviser Gen. James Jones are the leading advocates of placing Israel in the line of fire.
Hmm, isn't this where O and BiBi break into a kick-line singing the words of the immortal Cole Porter, "friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship"? Um...yeah...
The only thing O has accomplished in his first 100 days is to show us, and the world, how to plunge a dagger in your friends' back, while kissing your enemies' tukis...
Our only ally (and democracy) in the Middle East and the country that always knew we would stand behind/alongside them, is now considering its options for its survival...options they never thought they would ever have to contemplate.
Nice 'change' O...now you want to twist that knife, while you're at it?
O intends to dictate, to a sovereign nation (Israel), what they will and will not do concerning their national security. Israel will have NO say in the process. BiBi will simply follow O's commands.
O's plan for our friends:
1. Israel must freeze settlement activity on the West Bank and construction in East Jerusalem.
2. Israel would have to abandon large segments of the West Bank (by the way, the IDF's presence there is the only reason the West Bank is not the twin of Gaza).
3. Israel must remove authorized communities and unauthorized outposts and hand over the historic heart of Jerusalem to the PA.
4. The Israeli government would be required to accept an independent 'Palestinian' state, even if its government is dominated by the terrorist group Hamas (who, by the way, will never accept Israel's right to exist [hey, there's equity for ya!]).
The Netanyahu government will find O and his officials hearing-impaired not only on Israel's legitimate concerns on 'Palestinian violence toward innocent Israeli civilians, but also on a nuclear-armed Iran.
Wow, does O have testicular fortitude or what? How in the world did he ever think he had the right to tell an autonomous nation what to do, with no thought taken to the peril that those directives would cost in innocent lives?
Armed with this knowledge of Obama's intentions, it's up to us (and our representatives) to let 'the man who would be king' know we will not allow him to abandon our stalwart friends in their time of need. He may have no problem throwing his friends and family under the bus...but true Americans are faithful to their friends...come hell or high water...
With his disloyal course of action, maybe we should check O's birth certificate, after all?
Shalom through strength...
