    The Newest Charge of the Speech Brigade  

    By Stephen Plaut

    The Likud government and its leftist Attorney General continue to jihad against freedom of speech in Israel. The Likud has always been devoted to defending freedom of speech for Arab fascists and for Jewish anti-Israel radical leftists, just not for anyone else. Under the Likud *much like under the Labor Party Mensheviks), the Kahanists were criminalized and denied freedom of speech. People making “insensitive” or “racist” comments or having insensitive bumper stickers or Tee shirts were arrested, but only if they were being insensitive towards Arabs. Likudian Israel still enforces Israel’s
    ridiculous “anti-racism” laws that allow the police to arrest Jews making anti-Arab comments. All of Israel is subject to a “speech code.”

    Meotti: “The Pope was Not a Friend of the Jews”  

    By Giulio Meotti, ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS

    Pope Benedict XVI just resigned and Israel’s chief rabbis have already lauded the relations the Pontifex cultivated with the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

    The contrary is the case. The Pope has not been a friend of the Jewish people and he supported the world’s most important source of anti-Semitism: the Palestinianism.

    The proof is in the Pope’s travel in Israel in 2009, when Benedict most went closely in touch with the Israelis.

    The Vatican authorities avoided calling the “State of Israel” by name but preferred to use the empty denomination “Holy Land”. And the Pope presented the Arabs as “victims” and the Israelis as “oppressors”. It was clear from the Pope’s speeches in Bethlehem and its surroundings that the Catholic attitude to the Jewish people remains unchanged since the Second World War.

    Netanyahu’s coalition options seen to be closing  

    Put another way, Bibi is losing control. Apparently Lapid and Bennett have agreed to join the government or not, together. Between them they have 31 seats to Bibi’s 32 seats. They are both putting the squeeze on Shas and Bibi. This pact prevents Bibi from creating a right wing coalition of 61 seats.

    From my point of view, it is good that Shas be cut down to size. I want the religious Zionists to have more power and I want the Hereidi to go to work. But I don’t think that the focus on equal service is the right focus. Instead, I think the focus should be to getting them out of the Yeshivas, save for the brightest, and into the work force.

    Yet, Arutz Sheva reports, Bayit Yehudi ‘will be Netanyahu’s First Coalition Partner’

      Sources close to Bennett said that Bayit Yehudi is the right party for bridging the gaps between the hareidim and Yesh Atid on hareidi enlistment, “because of our familiarity with both the military world and the Torah world.”

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s efforts to build a broad national unity government suffered multiple setbacks on Monday when his potential coalition partners refused to compromise on key issues.

    The first setback occurred when Netanyahu met Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett at the Prime Minister’s Office in Tel Aviv. While both sides declined to reveal what was discussed at the meeting, both said afterward that Bayit Yehudi would continue coordinating coalition strategy with Yesh Atid.
