Silent Transfer of Enemies from Area-C.
(Where is Consistency? Those who are against Jewish ‘illegal’ settlements, should include Arab ones – the occupation of Jewish land!)
About three weeks ago, Supreme Court Justices Noam Sohlberg, Anat Baron and Yael Willner allowed the state to destroy the Palestinian community of Khan al-Ahmar and expel its citizens to a site near a dumpster in Abu Dis.
A total of 32 families – 173 persons, including 92 children – will be expelled. All structures, including a school serving more than 150 children from Khan al-Ahmar and from neighbouring Palestinian communities, will be demolished.
Khan al-Ahmar is but one of dozens of Palestinian communities under threat of expulsion. It will be the first such community in many years to be forcibly expelled in its entirety and relocated deep into the enclaves the state created for its Palestinian subjects in the West Bank, though such mass forcible transfers are rare in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria)…
The vast majority of Palestinians in Area C cannot build legally without master plans. These do not fall from the sky, but have to be approved by the Civil Administration (it never approves them – the same as Jewish construction is not approved in Area-A, controlled by the PA)…
No infrastructure, no running water, no electricity, and no educational framework for your children. You live under the constant whir of projectiles fired by training military forces, and all the while, the state destroys the few buildings and basic infrastructure you managed to lay out. Would you stay? (They will never leave on their own accord! After all, so many billions of dollars, given by international Jew-haters must be used! Jewish ‘settlers’ are living under the same conditions, trying to reclaim Jewish land from Arab occupation, but self-hating Jews and international anti-Semites have been helping enemies to destroy Zionist dream of Jewish people – return to and re-unify Jewish land!)
This is not a joke: after the kite terrorism has burned 6,200 acres of agricultural land and nature preserves in Israel’s territory, the army is examining whether kites and helium balloons can be defined legally as weapons. The reason is that such a definition would allow the air force to directly attack terrorist squads who launch firebomb kites and balloons and not be forced to suffice with warning shots. (In its futile attempt, Israel is trying to comply with “international law” that only applies to Israel and even created, to prevent Israel from defending itself!)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
Qatar has only 260,000 citizens, but 2.6 million residents – the UN and human right organizations are silent, nobody protests or cares! It means, Israel is able to keep its Jewish status by removing, and withholding citizenship from non-Jewish residents, and removing the anti-Israel and terrorist-minded population from Jewish land!
The United States could quit the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) soon. Diplomatic sources said it was not a question of if but of when. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has blasted the UNHRC for its obsession with criticizing Israel. She publicly told the Council a year ago that Washington might leave the body unless a “chronic anti-Israel bias” is removed. (On its part, Israel must disallow any UNHRC activities in the country!)
The Jerusalem Islamic Waqf took advantage of the final days of the holy month of Ramadan, when Jews were barred from visiting the Temple Mount, to eliminate from the compound piles of earth that were rich with archaeological treasures dating back to the Temple period. At this point, those tall piles of soil are gone from the Temple Mount, replaced by terraced stones. The crime paid. All evidence of a Jewish Temple have been permanently eliminated. (Why is Israel still allowing Islamic Waqf to operate after so many acts of hate and destruction of Jewish history?)
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s office released a statement welcoming the United States’ support at the UN. He said: “The UN’s incessant focus on Israel not only brings shame to the organization. It also draws attention away from so many other pressing issues that demand the attention of the international community.” “The people of Gaza are not our enemy. Hamas is.” he added. (They are enemies of Israel – Without their support there would be no Hamas!)
A Bedouin mother walking in Arad on Thursday laughed at a Jewish mother who asked her to intervene after the Bedouin’s son spat on a Jewish baby. (Some Jews are mistaken thinking that they are different from other Arabs and Muslims in their attitude toward Israel.)
A US administration official involved in formulating President Trump’s peace plan between Israel and the PA said that there is no deadline for presenting the plan, as long as the PA refuses to talk to the US. “The peace plan will not be presented unilaterally. We are still far from the moment we will bring it to the sides, because at the moment there is only one side that is dealing with us in intensive dialogue.” (What is the point for another fake plan which will not work anyway?)
The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) have thwarted some 250 “significant” terror attacks since the beginning of 2018, including suicide bombings, abductions, and live fire. To combat both institutional and lone wolf terrorism, Shin Bet relies on ”critical human capital,” as well as a range of tactics and technologies encompassing the realms of artificial intelligence and Big Data. (These attacks were inspired and facilitated by Hamas and the PA. They have not been condemned by the UN – ‘Ugly Nazi’!)
After US vetoes Kuwait resolution at Security Council calling to condemn Israel for use of ‘excessive force’ but failing to mention Hamas, Turkey and Algeria submit similar resolution to General Assembly; US submits amendment condemning Hamas as well. The UN General Assembly approved a Palestinian-backed resolution blaming Israel for violence in Gaza and deploring its “excessive use of force,” after narrowly rejecting a US demand to add a condemnation of attacks on Israel by Gaza’s Hamas rulers. (It did not work! The ‘Ugly Nazi’ spends so much time and funds attacking Israel. It is time to leave it – and move leftovers to Iran!)
The Palestinian Authority in Ramallah sent a defiant message to the United States and Israel. Yusuf al-Mahmoud, spokesman for the PA government: “there is no force in the world that can cause us to renounce our prisoners and the martyrs.” The PA budget for payments to terrorists in Israeli prisons skyrocketed to $158 million in 2017. (The policy is encouraging more terror against Israel! Friends of Israel must stop subsidizing terrorist enemies of Jews! Why do delusional Jews support the enemy?)
Israeli Military Industries Systems (IMI) and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) on Monday unveiled the Rampage, a long-range assault rocket. The Rampage boasts a warhead, rocket engine and advanced navigation suit which allow execution of high quality assault missions against well-protected targets with utmost precision.
Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has undertaken a three-day visit to Israel, signing bilateral agreements on education, science, and research. Kurz also paid a visit to the Western Wall, in Jerusalem’s Old City. (He did not care to visit Ramallah, unlike some of the other ‘friends’ of Israel!)
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei fired Iranian air force commander Brigadier General Farzad Ismaili, after the IAF F-35 “Adir” planes penetrated Iran’s airspace, circled high above Tehran, Karajrak, Isfahan, Shiraz and Bandar Abbas – and photographed Iran’s air defense system.
Anything for Another Stupid Photo-op?
Britain’s Prince William will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and also Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas when he will visit the region later this month. (Where is self-respect? Must Netanyahu always give a publicity opportunity to international celebrities, politicians, and idiots, and feed his own vanity?)
Israel’s Arab citizens, who make up a fifth of the population, are involved in 95.2 percent of all shootings in the country. There are organized crime gangs all over the Arab sector, whether in the Galilee or Lod-Ramle or Jaffa. Many of the crimes, it should be noted, take place within their own communities, meaning Arab-on-Arab violence. (There is a disproportionally high level of criminality among Moslem citizens in the Western countries!)
QUOTE of the WEEK:
“What makes Gaza different is that attacking Israel is their favorite political sport. The resolution is one sided, makes not one mention of Hamas which routinely initiates violence… It is Hamas and its allies who have fired more than 100 rockets into Israel in the last month. Hamas calls for the destruction of Israel in any borders… will you support this resolution and side with the terrorists of Hamas. The choice is yours.” – Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN – 120 members of the UN General Assembly have chosen, to no surprise, anti-Semitic Israel-bashing! About 80 years ago, they, as part of the League of Nations, deliberately blocked escape of Jewish people from looming Holocaust in Europe – perfectly aware of Hitler’s intention. They have not changed at all!
Why Left or Right?
by Steven Shamrak.
One of the major distinctions between humans and animals is that we have analytical intellect. At the same time, we base most of our ideas and form opinions on our emotions, beliefs, and assumptions, not on facts. Blinded by personal psycho-emotional history, people dismiss logic of the facts and create assumptions to fit and support their own belief structure.
Completely opposing each other ideologies and religions – Socialists, Communists, Fascists, some Christians, and many Muslims (Shi’a and Sunni) – find themselves united on one issue only – Hatred toward Jews!
Sometimes, I receive emails from some them. These messages are mainly just rhetoric, based on preconceived non-factual ideas and psycho-emotional confusion. They have never been able to refute the historical facts about the right of Jewish people to their homeland – “Palestina”, as Romans called it after crushing the Bar Kokhba revolt in 135 CE; the history of Muslim aggression and terror, instigated by Arabs against Jews; and the UN systematic bias against Israel!
But, I have been accused of being:
Anti-Arab or Muslim. – As a member of the Jewish tribe, with history of thousands of years of being a victim of persecution and discrimination, I can assure you, that my views are not anti-something but pro-Jewish rights! I am just expressing my pro-Jewish points of view based on facts, not fake claims. At the same time, I do respect the freedom of speech and rights of expression of any religious and political point of view, as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others, especially my people.
Too emotional. – What is wrong with it? Arab/Muslim leaders, clerics and mob have been fumigating when they talk about destruction of Israel in front of TV cameras, demonstration on streets or delivering a sermon. When Jew-haters, and even some self-hating Jewish groups, are screaming passionately anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slogans, apparently, this is the acceptable norm! However, when a Jew presents facts in support for the Jewish state, it is wrong – another example of anti-Semitic duplicity!
Too Right wing. – I do not consider myself a Right- or Left-winger Jew. I base my ideas and views on facts and the 2,000 years old inspirations of Jewish people to return and reunite our ancestral land! There are already too many Jews who are very eager to promote self-destructive views.
Too many Jews and some Jewish organizations have been making similar points and view, as I am, delivering them gently and appeasingly, trying not to upset our enemies, for too long – all in vain! Unfortunately, many modern Zionist organizations have forsaken true Zionist ideals and reduced their functioning to a Jewish social club.
Why are, in relation to Israel’s right to exist as the only Jewish state, the political views of Jewish Right or Left different? Isn’t Zionism – the Jewish independence movement – supposed to be the common ideology for all Jews?
Jewish people have the rights to live in peace on the land of their ancestors! Many years ago, when Jews were fighting for establishment of their own homeland, both sides of politics were united on this issue, singing “Eretz-Israel on both side of river Jordan.” Two millennia of Zionist aspiration of the Jewish people has nothing to do with the political system or economic model of Israel! Appeasement of our enemies, not just Arab/Muslim neighbours but also traditional anti-Semites, does not work. They will only respect strong and assertive Israel, and self-respecting Jews!

NOTE: The Term Palestinians is used as a commonly known definition, not as acceptance of the existence of a fake nation, which was created by Arab states, with the help of the Soviet Union, in 1960s in order to discredit and undermine legitimacy, and eventually destroy the Jewish state!
