Hipocrites, Please, Spare Us The Pieties On Gaza


Disproportion?  Really!  Innocents in Gaza?  Hah!  Give me a break!

They called it “peace” as long as the Arabs were doing the killing
and the Jews were doing the dying

By Jack Engelhard

Frankly, given a choice, I prefer the skinheads and other brutes who express their anti-Semitism openly. In such places, we know the enemy.  But please spare me the pieties and the righteous indignation of those so-called “good people” protesting throughout Europe against Israel’s defensive operation in Gaza. True, thousands have taken up banners in support of Israel and Jews all over the world are expressing support.  At the same time, however, the streets of Europe (and even some in America) are in an uproar.  These are the so-called “humanitarians” – the oh so “good”, “noble” and “refined”, who chant “peace, peace.”

Bastards of the world, unite!

Now you’re up and about?  Now you speak?  Where were you when, throughout the years, thousands of jihadist bombs fell on Israel?  The streets of Europe were empty.  There were no pictures in the newspapers of grieving Jewish mothers and fathers, of frightened old people and children. You called it “peace” as long as the Arabs were doing the killing and the Jews were doing the dying.  All was well with the world.

Suddenly, as Israel answers back, you found your “Cause”; and how self-righteous you are in your Cause!

You are the “best” and the “brightest” of Europe. You are educated. You attended the finest schools. You care for the birds, the bees, the bears, the trees. You favor free speech and freedom of religion.  Strange it is that the one and only place in the Middle East that shares your world-view is Israel, and it is Israel that you slander.

Israel is a Jewish State.  Is that your problem?  At the first hint of Jewish self-defense, how quickly you show your true colors!

I’ve seen the photos of your candlelight vigils along the streets and boulevards of Europe, all of it; all these tears in the service of those terrorists whom you call your brothers. Indeed you are related to Hamas (and Fatah) as once before, a mere generation ago, you were related to Hitler’s stormtroopers. Your angelic faces are touching and disgusting.  Your hypocrisy is transparent and nauseating.

You speak of “disproportion”.  You want proportion?  Give Israel a population of 300 million residing in 22 countries, similar to the Arab Muslims who surround and ambush Israel, instead of six million Jews in one single country. There’s plenty of “proportion” coming from your BBC, which delights in presenting one side of the story and picks up where Der Sturmer left off.  Now, with this type of “news”, we know how Europe was conditioned for a Holocaust.

Already we see Nights of Broken Glass. Thank you, Europe, for reminding us why America was discovered just in time (and why Israel was redeemed many generations too late).  You dare judge Israel?  In your deportations, your expulsions, your forced conversions, your inquisitions, your pogroms, you have no moral authority over Israel or even within your own borders.  You gave all that up from 1492 to 1942.

To those on the Left who sought peace, well, dear “peace-lovers”, your “peace” brought this on.  Your “Land for Peace” made this happen, as Land for Peace became Land for Jihad.  “Painful Concessions” caused this war.  Your “Goodwill Gestures” backfired. Want more “peace” you want?  Give up the Golan Heights.  Give up the entire Judea and Samaria, which you misnamed the “West Bank”.  Give up our own Capital, Jerusalem.  Imagine your “peace.”

As for those “innocent civilian”s” in Gaza, they were given a choice and they chose terrorist Hamas.  They chose this murderous pestilence.

As for those “refugee camps” – why are they “refugee camps” when Israel handed over all that territory for a nation to be built in peace and security alongside Israel?  Why are all Palestinians automatically refugees even after they’ve been given a home?  The only true refugees are the thousands of Israelis who were driven out from Gaza and still live in trailer parks.  But no tears for them in this world that still dreams of Auschwitz.

Once, in response to a column I wrote about Theresienstadt, someone responded that I was incorrect; that Theresienstadt was not a prelude to Auschwitz, but rather “a vacation resort.”  I wrote back wishing this person a lifetime in such vacation resorts.  I wish the same lifetime vacation resorts to all those parading throughout the streets of Europe or demonstating in New York at the Israeli Consulate, with banners crying, “Death to Israel.”

God bless the IDF!  Go Israel!

Expert On Genocides Warns He Sees Iran On The Path To Commit One Against Israel


Unlike Hurricanes, Says the World Expert, Genocides Are Predictable.
And Iran IS Following the Pattern of Committing a Genocide!

Gregory Stanton, Founder of Genocide Watch,
says Iran has taken 6 of the 8 steps to commit Genocide.
But it’s NOT Late to Follow Canada’s Preventative Lead.

.

Genocide is neither linear nor “inexorable.” It is, rather, predictable and preventable, so long as you recognize the universal signs. And Iran, in its language and action, has taken six of the eight steps on the path to genocide, according to Dr. Gregory Stanton, the world’s foremost  expert on the matter.

Stanton, the founder and director of Genocide Watch, the world’s first organization to deal exclusively with this issue, and the author of an historic two-page paper on the nature of genocide, spoke at the Hebrew University medical school last week. He called for an international campaign to abolish the recurring crime of genocide and for the world to take action, as Canada has, to ostracize Iran and curb its genocidal intent.

Talk of genocide, Stanton said — of removing a cancer or crushing a cockroach — is never just talk. “One of the best predictors of genocide is incitement to genocide,” he said, “and I believe that is exactly what Iran is doing today.”

Encouraging genocide is a crime. The UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide was signed in 1948 and fathered by Raphael Lemkin, a Jewish Polish lawyer who studied the genocide of the Armenians and invented the term in 1943 – “genos” meaning race or people and “cide” to kill. The Convention states that incitement “with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group” is illegal.

Late last week, on precisely those grounds, Canada severed its ties with Iran. John Baird, the minister of foreign affairs, announced that the Iranian regime “engages in racist anti-Semitic rhetoric and incitement to genocide.”

He gave Iranian diplomats five days to leave the country.

Stanton and Dr. Elihu Richter, a professor emeritus at the Hebrew University’s medical school and the founder of the Jerusalem Center for Genocide Prevention, both hailed the decision.

Richter called it “mighty” and said that the Canadian declaration “sets a powerful precedent for intervening to prevent genocide and genocidal terror by going at the early predictive causes and catalysts, rather than waiting for the body count.”

The two are seeking to drag Iran before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, where state actors can prosecute one another. Neither the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs nor the Prime Minister’s Office could confirm whether Israel had encouraged Canada to file charges against Iran for incitement to genocide.

The Predictable Pattern

Recognizing the early signs, spotlighting them and prosecuting those encouraging the killings are some of the ways to prevent a genocide. Ignoring them, dismissing them as diabolical rhetoric or as a tactic meant to advance a different goal, is to enable the perpetrators, Stanton said.

Often, genocide goes unrecognized. In the opening slide of Stanton’s lecture three perplexed diplomats, clutching attaché cases that label them as representing the EU, the US and the UN, look around at a patch of desert, Darfur, that is stained with the bodies of the dead.  “Well…” says one; “Genocide, genocide…” says another; “Difficult question…” says the third.

Over the years Stanton realized that all genocides follow eight stages. They are, in this order: classification, symbolization, dehumanization, organization, polarization, preparation, extermination and denial.  He said:

Iran has classified and symbolized Israel through exclusionary ideology and hate speech; dehumanized it – “overcoming the normal human revulsion against murder” — by portraying the potential victims as a “cancer” in need of eradication; organized fanatical militias (the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps); polarized the society by repressing dissent and arresting moderates;  prepared for the killing by denying a past genocide and by constructing weapons of mass destruction; and, through global terrorism, even begun the seventh of his eight stages: extermination.

Genocide

Places, like this church in Rwanda, could have been safe havens for the Tutsi people who sought shelter in them, but in the weeks leading up to the genocide, the international so-called “peacekeepers” were purposefully withdrawn, and 800,000 innocent people were massacred

In the past century alone there have been 55 genocides, leaving 70 million people dead, Stanton said. The Armenians, the Jews and the Tutsi of Rwanda were the rare examples of one group’s campaign to destroy another group in its entirety, he said; more often, the case is that one group seeks to partially eradicate another– perhaps the educated classes or those living in a certain geographic region. For instance, in 1971, Pakistani forces killed somewhere between 300,000 and three million Bangladeshis. They did not seek to annihilate all Hindus in what was then known as East Pakistan, but the crime, Stanton said, must be considered a genocide.

The Call to Service

Stanton, a small-town Illinois native and the son of a Presbyterian pastor, realized he had to devote his life to the prevention of genocide in 1981, while sitting in the office of a Yale psychiatrist.

A graduate of the Harvard Divinity School with a PhD in cultural anthropology from the University of Chicago, he was in his second year at Yale Law School, recently back from a year in Cambodia, where he had worked for the Church World Service, bringing relief to the victims of the Khmer Rouge. He and his wife had adopted a daughter there and he should have been happy, he said, but instead he had slipped into a deep depression. His wife insisted he see a psychiatrist, who asked what was bothering him. He told of the mass graves and the survivor testimonies and the little corpse in the tattered Mickey Mouse t-shirt.

The doctor told him that if he weren’t depressed there would be something wrong with him. The doctor added that he, like many others who have studied depression, feel it is a form of repressed anger. “Then he looked at me and said: ‘What are you angry about?’” Stanton recalled.

Stanton’s response: the fact that the Khmer Rouge had organized and perpetrated the killing of 1.7 million Cambodians and still remained in power.

From that moment on the prevention of genocide became his life’s work. He founded the Cambodia Genocide Project and spent decades pushing for the indictment of those responsible. He helped establish the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and was awarded the American Foreign Service Association’s W. Averell Harriman Award for “intellectual courage and creative accomplishment.”

Nonetheless, in the late nineties, he was fired from the State Department. His supervisor, frustrated with his efforts to document what he called “the appalling cowardice” of the US State Department in April 1994 — when it voted to withdraw all UNAMIR peacekeepers in Rwanda in the face of a mounting genocide — wrote the type of evaluation that he knew would eventually terminate his career. “Greg apparently does not understand that the State Department is a hierarchical organization,” he quoted, with obvious pleasure, during the lecture.

Before leaving the State Department, he wrote the two-page paper that is at the heart of his presentation and work.

Since then, Stanton, a descendant of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Henry Brewster Stanton – a founder of the woman’s liberation movement and an abolitionist – has founded the International Campaign to End Genocide.  It rests on two fundamental principles:  that genocide is “unlike a hurricane” and therefore predictable, and that the phenomenon has become wretchedly common.

“It’s like slavery,” he said, “a giant elephant in the room that everyone is ignoring.”

The Israeli Science Website Asserts that the Obama Birth Certificate IS Forged Indeed


An Award-Winning, Former Netanyahu Adviser,
is Behind the Significative Assessment, Which
Corroborates Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Investigation

Now, Why Faking a Certificate?
Why the Millionaire Efforts to Block Access to It?
Because a Real Certificate Does NOT Exist in America!
Reality is that Obama Is a Muslim Usurper

.

Israel Hanukoglu

Israel Hanukoglu

‘Israel Science and Technology’, the national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel, has published an article asserting the long-form birth certificate released by the White House is a forged document.

The website was created by a former science adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D.

Hanukoglu, an award-winning researcher, is a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the Department of Molecular Biology at Ariel University Center of Samaria in Ariel, Israel.

The professor established the first version of his website during his tenure as Netanyahu’s science adviser. The site has evolved into “the premier science and technology portal for Israel.”

The website says that the White House’s release of the Obama document in April 2011, after years of controversy, “raised in our minds the possibility that there could be something suspicious about the information available on this document.”

The website conducted an independent analysis and cites others who came to the same conclusion.

The website says the publication “of such a blatantly fake document about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, should raise great concern about the suitability of the person who is holding the reigns on the most powerful country of the World.”

Israel Science and Technology explains why, as a site of science and technology, it dedicated “a page to expose forgery about a document related to Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.”  The site says:

“Mr. Obama is the president of the USA that is currently the leader of the Free World, and the most powerful country in the Western hemisphere.  In his position as the President, the policies pursued by Mr. Obama affects the whole world and not just the USA. Moreover, inaction by members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, as well as U.S. courts, despite many appeals, also was seen to raise a concern about how the governmental institutions of the reputedly best, and certainly the most important democracy in the Free World have avoided the issue.”

The Missing ‘1’

Utilizing the software program Foxit Reader version 4.3.1, the Israel Science and Technology website examined the PDF file posted by the White House April 27, 2011, and found that the last digit of the birth certificate’s number, 61 10841, disappears under 800-percent magnification.

Also, the font of the last digit is different from the other digits.

“This is only one example,” the Israelis concluded after examining the birth certificate number. “Many more examples can be discovered by examining magnified document with full page view of the document.”

Conclusion: “In brief, this simple analysis using just a viewing software reveals that the PDF document has been altered by a graphics software.”

The ‘Ungrouped’ Image

Next, the Israeli Science and Technology site examined the PDF birth certificate file in the freely available Inkscape graphics software, version 0.48.1.

“In vector graphics software, an image is composed of elements,” the website notes. “If the ‘Long-Form Birth Certificate’ of Obama was a photocopied document then it should not be composed of separate parts.”

The website says the status line “at the bottom of the software reports that the image is composed of ’2 objects’ that have been grouped.”

The Israelis found the Obama birth certificate PDF could be ungrouped, revealing individual layers. The most important of nine different ungrouped layers also shows the final digit, 1, is missing in the birth certificate number 61 10641.

40 Points That Prove That Barack Obama And Mitt Romney Are Essentially The Same Candidate


.

Why America Cannot Escape the Dictatorship
of One Single Party With Two Similar Heads

.

Two Headed Dragon

What a depressing choice the American people are being presented with this year!  [ Actually, this is in reality a for long recurrent and irreparable situation ].

Americans are at a point in their history where they desperately need a drastic change of direction in the White House, and they are guaranteed that they are not going to get it.  The Democrats are running the worst president ever in American history, and the Republicans are running a guy who is almost a carbon copy of him!  The fact that about half the country is still supporting Barack Hussein Obama shows how incredibly stupid and corrupt the American people have become.

No American should have ever cast a single vote for Barack Obama for any political office, under any circumstances.  He should never have even been the Assistant Superintendent in Charge of Janitorial Supplies in a McDonald, much less the President of the United States.  The truth is that Barack Obama has done such a horrible job that he should immediately resign along with his entire cabinet.  But instead of giving us a clear choice, the Republicans nominated the Republican that was running that was most similar to Barack Hussein Obama.  In fact, I don’t think Americans have ever had two candidates for president that are so similar.  Yes, there are a few minor differences between them, but the truth is that we are heading into Obama’s second term no matter which one of them gets elected.

The prostituted mainstream corporate media makes it sound like Obama and Romney are bitter ideological rivals but that is a giant lie.  Yeah, they are slinging lots of mud at each other, but they both play for the same evil team and the losers are going to be the American people.

Republicans are being told that they have “no choice” but to vote for Romney because otherwise they will get another four years of Obama.  This “lesser of two evils” theme comes out every four years.  We are told that we “must” vote for a horrible candidate because the other guy is even worse. Well, millions of Americans are getting sick of this routine.  Perhaps that is why it is being projected that as many as 90 million Americans of voting age will not vote this year.  [ If that takes place, Obama will be the winner ]

Yes, Barack Hussein Obama has been so horrible as president that it is hard to put it into words.  But Mitt Romney would be just like Barack Obama.

Those that are dreaming of a major change in direction if Romney is elected are going to be bitterly, bitterly disappointed.

[ Actually, have you noticed that everytime the next is incredible worse that the previous one, who by the way was already pretty terrible.  I though that no one would be worse than Bush … well, until I researched Obama before the 2008 elections and realized that he was going to be a true nightmare for America, and for Israel.  Only slobeering idiots would vote for him, I thought.  Well, electing him told a lot of Americans indeed.  Even this day, look at the enormous amount of brain-dead people that still vociferously sustain that he is “very intelligent,” that he “is not a Muslim,” and that he was born “in Hawaii.”  Oy, and some think that dogmatic faith only applies to religion!  If he is so intelligent why all his college records are sealed, as well as those of his “mysterious” birth?  What about his own grandmother saying that she was present in his birth in Kenya?  And if he is not a Muslim, then why did he flatly say he was?  ( Watch him here declare it on live American TV.

.

Isn’t it preposterous how the prostituted interviewer sheepishly called his atenttion so as to help him correct teh confession, rather than confronting him. What?  A slip? Sure!   Have you ever had such a fantastic slip?   On the other hand, why did he genuflexed to the king of Soudi Arabia?  Because he has the highest position in the Muslim world, he is ‘The Keeper of the Ka’aba’!  There countless evidences that clearly tell us who this evil engender is.  But let us go back to where we were.) ]

The following are 40 ways that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are essentially the same candidate….

  1. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported TARP.
  2. Mitt Romney supported Barack Obama’s “Economic Stimulus” packages.
  3. Mitt Romney says that Barack Obama’s bailout of the auto industry was actually his idea!
  4. Neither candidate supports immediately balancing the federal budget.
  5. They both believe in big government and they both have a track record of being big spenders while in office.
  6. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both fully support the Federal Reserve.
  7. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both on record as saying that the president should not question the so-called “independence” of the Federal Reserve.
  8. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both said that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke did a good job during the last financial crisis.
  9. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both felt that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke deserved to be renominated to a second term.
  10. Both candidates oppose a full audit of the Federal Reserve!
  11. Both candidates are on record as saying that U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy “the Tax Dodger” Geithner has done a good job.
  12. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both been big promoters of universal health care.
  13. Mitt Romney was the one who developed the plan that Obamacare was later based upon.
  14. Wall Street absolutely showers both candidates with campaign contributions.
  15. Neither candidate wants to eliminate the income tax or the IRS.
  16. Both candidates want to keep personal income tax rates at the exact same levels for the vast majority of Americans.
  17. Both candidates are “open” to the idea of imposing a Value Added Tax on the American people.
  18. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the TSA is doing a great job!
  19. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported the NDAA.
  20. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act.
  21. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the federal government should be able to indefinitely detain American citizens that are considered to be terrorists.
  22. Both candidates believe that American citizens suspected of being terrorists can be killed by order of the president without a trial!
  23. Barack Obama has not closed Guantanamo Bay like he promised to do, and Mitt Romney actually wants to double the number of prisoners held there.
  24. Both candidates support the practice of “Extraordinary Rendition”.
  25. They both support the job-killing “free trade” agenda of the global elite.
  26. They both accuse each other of shipping jobs out of the country and both of them are right.
  27. Both candidates are extremely soft on illegal immigration.
  28. Neither candidate has any military experience.  This is the first time that this has happened in a U.S. election since 1944.
  29. Both candidates earned a degree from Harvard University.
  30. They both believe in the spurious theory of man-made global warming.
  31. Mitt Romney has said that he will support a “Cap and Trade” carbon tax scheme (like the one Barack Obama wants) as long as the entire globe goes along with it.
  32. Both candidates have a very long record of supporting strict gun control measures.
  33. Both candidates have been pro-abortion most of their careers.  Mitt Romney’s “conversion” to the pro-life cause has been questioned by many.  In fact, Mitt Romney has made millions on Bain Capital’s investment in a company called “Stericycle” that incinerates aborted babies collected from family planning clinics.
  34. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the Boy Scout ban on openly gay troop leaders is wrong!
  35. They both say to believe the lie that a “two state solution” will bring lasting peace between the Palestinians and Israel.
  36. Both candidates have a history of nominating extremely liberal judges.
  37. Like Barack Hussein Obama, Mitt Romney also plans to add “signing statements” to bills when he signs them into law.
  38. They both have a horrible record when it comes to job creation.
  39. Both candidates believe that the president has the power to take the country to war without getting the approval of the U.S. Congress.
  40. Both candidates plan to continue running up more government debt even though the U.S. government is already 16 trillion dollars in debt.

Good night America!

Obama Says That What Iran Must Avoid Is US Interests in the Gulf


.

America Gives Iran A Green Light To Do As It Pleases Against Israel

The US sends Iran an indirect message saying it won’t back an Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities as long as Iran refrains from attacking the US facilities in the Persian Gulf

This is Nothing New,
Once Again America Betrays Its Most Trusting Partners
Remember Cuba, old Iran, and others – being the last one Egypt and now Israel
But HaShem Will Cause That Israel Will Be a Big Bone Stuck In Her Throat

.

Just like England threw Czechoslovakia to Hitler,
now America throws Israel to the Ayatollahs.  But this time…


The True Uncaring Obama

.The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday.

According to the report, Washington used covert back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel in a strike that may spark a regional conflict.

Obama Backstabbed Netanyahu

In return, Washington reportedly expects Iran to steer clear of strategic American assets in the Persian Gulf, such as military bases and aircraft carriers.

Israeli officials reported an unprecedented low in the two nations’ defense ties, which stems from the Obama administration’s desire to warn Israel against mounting an uncoordinated attack on Iran.

The New York Times reported Monday that Barack Obama is promoting a series of steps meant to curb an Israeli offensive against Iran, while forcing the Islamic Republic to take the nuclear negotiations more seriously. One of the steps considered is “an official declaration by Obama about what might bring about American military action, as well as covert activities that have been previously considered and rejected,” the report said.

Several of Obama’s top advisors believe that Jerusalem is seeking an unequivocal American statement regarding a US strike on Iran – should it actively pursue a nuclear bomb.

Israel hopes such a statement is made during Obama’s address before the UN General Assembly on September 25.

Others in the White House said Israel is trying to drag the US into an “unnecessary” conflict in the Gulf.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that

“There is absolutely no daylight between the United States and Israel when it comes to preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.”

Carney said that all options remain on the table for Iran. He said the “window for diplomacy remains open,” adding that the diplomatic process remains the best way to deal with the Islamic Republic, though “that window will not remain open indefinitely.”

Cyber war a go?

According to the New York Times, Washington has also sent Iran a back-channel deal suggesting they curb their nuclear ambitions, but Tehran rejected the deal, saying no agreement is possible sans lifting all West-imposed sanctions.

According to the report, the Obama administration is exploring the possibility of mounting a covert operation, as well as waging a “quiet” cyber war against Iran.

President Obama had previously rejected the notion, fearing such cyber assaults would wreak havoc on Iranian civilian life.

Later in September, the United States and more than 25 other nations will hold the largest-ever minesweeping exercise in the Persian Gulf, in what military officials say is a demonstration of unity and a defensive step to prevent Iran from attempting to block oil exports through the Strait of Hormuz.

In fact, the United States and Iran have each announced what amounted to dueling defensive exercises to be conducted this fall, each intended to dissuade the other from attack.

The Antisemitic “International Community” Attacks Israel At Every Step

The International Furor Over a Small Settlement of Orthodox Jewish Pioneers and Patriots at Migron Threatens Democracy in the State of Israel

Now, HOW CAN Migron BE Part of “Palestinian” Territory
if 3,000 Years Ago  it WAS the Town of King Shaul,
the First King of Israel?!

.

Innocent Orthodox Jewish Girl in Migron, Israel
An Innocent Orthodox Jewish Child Ejected from her Home in the Jewish Village of Migron, Israel

The visit to Migron in the following U-Tube presentation by Maggid Dov Bar Leib is a portrayal of a small village of Jewish patriots and pioneers in the process of reclaiming the Land of Samaria and Judea. Here in the heartland of the biblical Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, are the ancient lands of Samaria and Judea governed 3,000 years ago by Kings of the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah.

This struggle to hold on to the homeland of Israel is only indicative of the struggle by the evil forces of darkness to drive out the last visible presence of G-d’s only Chosen People from the Land of Israel; the Capital of the G-d of Israel on Planet Earth.

Here is a cosmic battle of Evil against Goodness on Planet Earth that is most visible to all who can and want to see reality. The dark forces of evil that are engulfing the whole planet. By the way, if you think that you are immune, think again.

Soon G-d will punish all men with Fair and Just Judgment for how they choose to protect or seek to destroy the Orthodox Jewish of Israel — which is what is behind all this bruhaha with expelling the pioneering settlers in the Land of Israel. So, read carefully for as the fire of persecution is lit in Israel, the flame will be carried around the whole world.

We encourage you to take a guided tour through the tiny hamlet of homes in Migron with Maggid Dov Bar Leib. See the three slabs of concrete that has enraged the whole world, especially the murderous Arabs, in league with cowardly Europe and of the mega-hipocritical America, these last two entranced with their evil role as Edom, mere followers of that miserable power of darkness called the Vatican and, of course, the P2 Masonic Lodge in the Vatican who rules them all.

Yet the war is not about slabs of concrete on the ground. It is about the Sovereignty of the G-d of Israel who claims this small piece of land to be His Holy Land for his Chosen People. But the fact is that the evil forces of darkness opine otherwise, so they will continue to seek to take dominion over the entire planet.”

Now we invite you to read the article titled, “Column One: Migron’s Alarming Message”, written by Caroline B. Glick, an American-Israeli journalist for Makor Rishon and the deputy managing editor of ‘The Jerusalem Post’. She is also the Senior Fellow for Middle East Affairs of the Washington, D.C.- based Center for Security Policy.

Column One: Migron’s Alarming Message
By Carolyn B. Glick @ Jerusalem Post

“Migron residents will be tossed from their homes because AG Yehuda Weinstein and associates believe they are above the law. By Tuesday, 50 Israeli families will have been tossed out of their homes in their village of Migron, which is set for destruction. They will not be dispossessed because they unlawfully squatted on someone else’s property. The residents of Migron will be tossed from their homes – on the order of the Supreme Court – because Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and his associates believe they are above the law. And due to this opinion, Weinstein and his associates refuse to recognize the sovereign authority of Israel’s government or to act in accordance with its lawful decisions.

The media have alternatively presented the story of Migron’s imminent destruction as a story about a power struggle between so-called settlers and the IDF, whose forces will be called upon to eject them from their homes; or as a struggle between the Israeli residents of Judea and Samaria and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu; or as a struggle between the radical leftists from “Peace” Now and its fellow foreign government-financed NGOs, and the residents of Judea and Samaria.

These portrayals are reasonable on the narrow level of day to day developments in the story of Migron’s struggle. But on a more fundamental level, the story of Migron and its pending destruction is the story of the power struggle between Israel’s unelected, radical legal fraternity represented by the attorney-general, the State Prosecution he directs and the Supreme Court on the one hand, and Israel’s elected governments – from the Right and from the Left – on the other.

Migron is the latest casualty of this struggle. The legal fraternity’s bid to wrest sovereign power of governance from Israel’s elected leadership threatens our democracy. In its continuous assault on governing authority, the legal fraternity renders it difficult if not, as a practical matter, impossible, for the government – any government – to govern.

It is important at the outset to recognize that there is a world of difference between the rule of law and the rule of lawyers. The fate of Migron, which was sealed on Wednesday with the decision of the Supreme Court, sitting as the High Court of Justice, to remove all 50 families from their homes, is a legal atrocity.

Migron was founded in 1999 on 60 plots of land. In 2006, the blatantly treasonous and EU-funded “Peace” Now petitioned the High Court claiming to represent Arab “owners” of five out of the 60 plots of land. The traitors of “Peace” Now asked the court to require the state to explain why it hadn’t destroyed the town, which the group claimed was built on “stolen” land. Migron’s residents dispute this claim.

In responding to this petition, the State Attorney’s Office could have asked the court to allow the issue of ownership to be adjudicated by a lower court. Instead, the State Prosecution accepted as fact “Peace” Now’s unproven claim of private Arab ownership of the land. And, after numerous delays, in 2011 the court ruled that the village must be destroyed.

Following its victory in the Supreme Court, “Peace” Now sued the state for damages for the alleged Arab landlords, claiming that the presence of the community prevented the land’s owners from harvesting nonexistent olive trees. “Peace” Now abruptly canceled its lawsuit when the court asked for proof of ownership.

For their part, Migron’s residents went through Jordanian land records and were able to find owners for only seven of the registered plots. And they managed to buy – at exorbitant cost – three of those plots. Recognizing that its claim that Migron was illegally built on private lands could no longer be justified, “Peace” Now changed its strategy. In the latest Supreme Court hearings, brought by Migron’s residents, the traitors of “Peace” Now claimed that the reason all the Israelis need to be ejected from their homes, and all the homes need to be destroyed, is that the village was built without proper permits.

Ahead of the court hearing last month, the government’s Ministerial Committee on Settlement convened to determine the government’s position on the new Migron petition. Led by Netanyahu, the ministers decided that the government’s position was to ask for a continuance in order to enable the lower courts to adjudicate the claims of ownership of the land.

Rather than follow the law and represent that position to the court, Weinstein instructed attorney Osnat Mandel from the State Prosecution to inform the court he did not accept the government’s decision, and ask for a continuance in order to give him time to force the government to change its position.

Addressing the court, Mandel said,

“The attorney- general believes that the ministerial committee’s position will raise legal difficulties. And since we’re requesting a continuance for undertaking the evacuation anyway [for unrelated reasons], he requests [time] to hold meetings with the elected leadership.”

On the face of it, Weinstein’s defiance of a legally binding government decision was unlawful. Certainly it would appear to be grounds for his immediate firing. But while shocking, Weinstein’s rank insubordination was not unique.

As relates to Israel’s legal rights in Judea and Samaria, Weinstein is guided not by the law but by the ideology of the far Left. This ideology received formal expression in a 2005 report on unauthorized Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria authored by former assistant state attorney Talia Sasson. The Sasson Report represented a wholesale renunciation of all Israeli claims to legal rights over Judea and Samaria. It was unhinged from both Israeli and international law. And it was embraced by the legal fraternity. After Sasson finished her report, she joined the post-Zionist Meretz Party. In 2009 she ran unsuccessfully for Knesset.

In an attempt to mitigate the damage Sasson’s report caused to Israel’s legal position in Judea and Samaria, in February Netanyahu commissioned retired Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy to lead a task force of distinguished jurists and present the government with a report setting out Israel’s legal rights to Judea and Samaria. Netanyahu asked Levy to also offer recommendations for implementing those rights in relation to the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Weinstein didn’t even wait for the Levy Commission to begin its work before he sent Netanyahu a letter informing him that the commission’s report would have no impact on his handling of issues related to Israel’s rights to the areas. And as his decision to ignore the legally constituted ministerial committee’s position on Migron made clear, Weinstein continues to behave as though he and his colleagues sit above Israel’s democratically elected representatives.

Many on the Right are urging Netanyahu to adopt the findings of the Levy Commission as official government policy. While such a move certainly can’t hurt, it is hard to see what difference it would make in practice. Weinstein has already pledged to defy the government. So even if the report is adopted, the government’s lawyers will refuse to defend its positions.  [ Isn’t it high time to fire all of them? ]

Weinstein is only able to behave as he does because he operates in an environment where the Supreme Court has usurped the power of Israel’s elected governments to determine state policy. [ Smells like a coup d’etat ]

At the same time that then-Supreme Court president Aharon Barak declared that “everything is justifiable,” the court gutted the requirement for legal standing. It has worked hand in glove with radical treasonous groups like “Peace” Now to dictate government policy. Through this collaboration, the court – not the government – determines Israel’s policies on everything from Israel’s legal position in Judea and Samaria to environmental issues, to the nature of Israel’s penal system, to homosexual unions, to education policy, to permissible military tactics in wartime.

In this environment of judicial tyranny, Weinstein can freely undercut governmental authority, because he knows that so long as his breach of trust pushes government policy to the Left, the Supreme Court will support his unlawful actions.

Aside from Migron, the most striking example of the legal fraternity’s recent collaboration to undercut governmental authority [and threaten the security of Israel] was its torpedoing of the government’s February 2011 appointment of Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant to serve as the IDF chief of staff. At the time, the court agreed to hear a petition submitted by the Green Movement demanding the cancellation of Galant’s appointment.

The Green Movement claimed Galant was unfit to lead the military because in the past he had committed an administrative infraction by wrongfully using state land adjacent to his homestead on Moshav Amikam. The Green Movement had no direct interest in Galant’s administrative infraction and therefore, if the Supreme Court followed even the lowest standards for standing, it should never have received a hearing.

Even with the forbearance of the court, the Green Movement’s ability to win the case was dubious at best. The Senior Appointments Committee had already vetted Galant’s candidacy, and approved it despite his misuse of state lands. But Weinstein had other plans.
Claiming he had “ethical difficulties” defending Galant’s lawful appointment, Weinstein refused to defend the government before the Supreme Court. Consequently, Weinstein compelled the government to force Galant to resign his commission and appoint someone else to serve as the IDF’s top commander.

Netanyahu has come under sharp criticism, particularly from his voters, for his refusal to stand up to Weinstein and his band of legal despots. And this makes sense. Netanyahu should have stood up to Weinstein in defense of Galant. And he should have denounced Weinstein last month for his unlawful defiance of the government on Migron. He should also stand up to Weinstein on the Levy Commission report, and just as a matter of policy, adopt its findings as the formal position of Israel’s government.
But even if he does these things, all they would serve to do is temporarily mitigate the frustration of his voters. They wouldn’t change the basic calculus of power. The fact is that today Netanyahu lacks the means to curb the legal fraternity’s abuse of power.
The [deceiving corporate] media staunchly defend every move the legal fraternity takes to usurp the powers of the government and the Knesset. Indeed, the media represents the legal brotherhood’s unlawful moves as supreme acts of selflessness on behalf of Israeli democracy and the rule of law.

Every potentially powerful critic of their behavior has found himself the subject of protracted criminal probes. This includes Netanyahu during his first term, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman for the past decade, former justice ministers Tzachi Hanegbi and Haim Ramon, and Justice Minister Ya’akov Ne’eman during his first tenure in office.

The dispossessed residents of Migron are just the latest casualties of the legal fraternity’s campaign to force its radical agenda on an unwilling electorate.

f we wish to save Israel’s democratic system, the people of this country must stand up and demand that our representatives protect our right to be governed by those whom we elect and not by self-appointed clerks.
The only suitable response to Migron is a legislative overhaul of Israel’s legal system.”

In new blow to the military, Egypt’s president to regain exclusive right to declare war


‘The opinion of the Armed Forces is consultative’
says a member of the Constitutional Assembly 
.
The authority to declare war will be stripped from the Supreme Council of Armed Forces and given to the president, Egypt’s constitutional assembly decided.

To declare war, the president will require the consent of the National Defense Council, a security body revived in June by the army and comprising political and military figures. It will also require the consent of the People’s Assembly, Egypt’s parliament, but not that of SCAF.

The decision marks another setback for Egypt’s military establishment, which has seen its powers eroded since the election of Egypt’s first civilian president in June.

Earlier that month, the military amended the constitution of 1971, depriving the president of the prerogative to declare war without the army’s approval. Since taking office, President Mohammed Morsi has sought to consolidate power in the executive.

“The opinion of the armed forces is consultative, advising on the readiness [for war]; it cannot impose its opinion on the state,” constitutional assembly member Bassam Zarqa told the Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm.

On August 12, Morsi overhauled the military establishment by retiring SCAF chief and Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi and Chief of Staff Sami Anan. Morsi also discharged the heads of the navy, air defense and air force.

In a Reuters interview on Tuesday, Morsi pledged to honor international agreements, and said Egypt would not initiate war.
