    The New York Times vs. The Jews  

    By Martin Sherman, JPOST
      There is an unavoidable conflict between being a Jewish state and a democratic state. – Joseph Levine, “On Questioning the Jewish State,” The New York Times, March 9 There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them. — George Orwell
    Last week I cautioned that a crucial intellectual battle has been launched to strip the Jews of their political independence and national sovereignty. As promised, in this week’s column I will elaborate on the inanity and iniquity of this Judeophobic initiative. Pernicious, perverse, paradoxical The Times – together with several other major mainstream media entities – has chosen to throw its weight decisively behind this patently pernicious, perverse and paradoxical endeavor.

    Dispelling the myths

    A travesty and a tragedy  

    Ted Belman. It is unclear from this report if Netanyahu expressed regret or apologized. It is Erdogan who should have apologized for allowing the ship, Mavi Marmara, to participate in the first instance. He had to know that the passengers were girding for battle. Israel also “agreed to complete the agreement on compensation.” This humiliation comes on the heels of Erdogan’s recent remark that “Zionism was a crime against humanity”.
    TOI In the call, Netanyahu apologized to the Turkish people “for any errors that could have led to loss of life” in the May 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, “and agreed to complete the agreement on compensation,” his office later said in a statement. Erdogan reportedly said he accepted the Israeli apology. In the first conversation between the leaders since 2009, Netanyahu made it clear that the tragic consequences of the Mavi Marmara flotilla interception — in which nine Turkish citizens were killed by Israeli naval commandos who had come under attack as they sought to commandeer the Gaza-bound vessel — were unintentional.

    Can Housing Minister Uri Ariel make a difference  

    Uri Ariel, the new housing minister from Habayit Hayehudi, is the high priest of construction in Judea and Samaria • Ariel will try to implement a series of unwritten understandings with Likud and Yesh Atid alike regarding significant construction in the existing settlement blocs and to accommodate natural growth in the communities deep inside the territory. Nadav Shragai,ISRAEL HAYOM New Housing Minister Uri Ariel from Habayit Hayehudi has been a constant fixture of the settler movement in Judea and Samaria. | Photo credit: Dudi Vaknin Uri Ariel, the new housing minister from Habayit Hayehudi, has been a constant fixture of the settlement movement in Judea and Samaria. He has two sayings that have stayed with him for many years. One is taken from the animal world: “We have stopped being part of the insect world and have joined the world of the predators.” (Read more…)

    Don’t settle for security only  

    This is a Report, RESTORING A SECURITY-FIRST PEACE POLICY, published by Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. It was authored in Nov 2011, by Lt.-Gen. (ret.) Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s current Min of Defence. I take great issue with this idea. Whenever Netanyahu assures us that he won’t jeopardize Israel’s security I am bitterly disappointed. Its not that I don’t want to be secure, I do, but for me, that is a given. What I want to hear from our leaders is that Judea and Samaria belong to the Jews for many reasons, including, Israel has the best if not the only legal title to it, it is ours historically, Hashem gave it to us, we won it in a defensive war and international law recognizes it as ours. Yet all we hear from Netanyahu and previous Prime Ministers is that they won’t jeopardize our security. What I want to hear from them is our rightful claim to the land. Occasionaly they call the lands “disputed”. Not good enough. They should repeat as a mantra that the lands belong to us. So long as they are silent on our rights, they give legitimacy to the occupation myth. I am glad to read that Min Bennett took issue with Obama’s reference to the lands being occupied by saying that “there is no occupation within one’s own land.”

    Yaalon, no threat to Netanyahu’s policies  

    By: Mazal Mualem for Al-Monitor Israel Pulse. Posted on March 13. Four years after his dream was shattered, Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon is expected to step into the shoes of one of the most dominant and influential defense ministers who ever served Israel — Ehud Barak. For the former chief of staff, who was forced to make do for the last four years with the “Strategic Affairs” portfolio that had originally been created for his predecessor, Avigdor Liberman — this not only represents the closing of a circle. This is also a personal victory over Barak, his bitter rival. At a number of points in closed meetings, Ya’alon warned others about what he viewed as Barak’s lack of discretion; he saw Barak as a dangerous party, a troublemaker without inhibitions who is not committed to Israel’s national interests and who, during his tenure as chief of staff, brought evil winds into the IDF’s General Staff.

    The revisiting of the endless peace war  

    By Daniel Greenfield.., Sultan Knish..FrontPageMag “War is peace,” entered our cultural vocabulary some sixty-four years ago. Around the same time that Orwell’s masterpiece was being printed up, an armistice was being negotiated between Israel and the Arab invading armies. That armistice began the long peaceful war or the warring peace. The entire charade did not properly enter the realm of the Orwellian until the peace process began. The peace process between Israel and the terrorist militias funded by the countries of those invading armies has gone on for longer than most actual wars. It has also taken more lives than most actual wars. War has an endpoint. Peace does not. A peace in which you are constantly at war can go on forever because while the enthusiasts of war eventually exhaust their patriotism, the enthusiasts of peace never give up on their peacemaking.

    Op-ed: Formal peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians would only lead to more hatred  

    American insistence inexplicable Elyakim Haetzni, YNET These words are addressed to the president of the United States on the eve of his visit and are written by a “settler” who, according to the president’s policy, should be banished from his home. They are written in the classic Jewish form of dialogue known as ichfa mistabra – where one takes the opposite point of view to prove a point. Dear Mr. President, They say the Americans are committed to resolving our crisis with the Palestinians. But could it be, ifcha mistabra, that the Americans are the problem and not the solution, because the Arabs’ expectation for American pressure on us only makes their positions more radical? A two-year-old girl is fighting for her life, and her mother and two sisters are injured. They were attacked with stones during riots that erupted in the West Bank ahead of your visit. You too are aware that your demand for a construction freeze in the settlements as a precondition for the resumption of negotiations was what prevented the talks from resuming in the first place. The ruler of Ramallah has to be as fervent as the American pope is. (Read more…)
