The Approaching Civil War in Israel - Sleepwalking into a Nightmare

Warnings from Politicians

I picked up this little item from Arutz Sheva Thursday morning (26 November 2009). Ynetnews carefully avoided mentioning MK Danny Danon's (Likud) warning that Barak and Netanyahu are leading us to civil war in its coverage of a meeting of leaders from Judea and Samaria.

Later that day, MK Tzipora Hotobeli (Likud) amplified this point, saying that Prime Minister Netanyahu had made a mistake in strategically separating Judea and Samaria from Jerusalem in dealing with the United States and its little "Palestinian" puppet Mahmoud Abbas.

Not all of our soldiers are happy with being used as goons to kick out fellow Jews from their homes, when it is obvious to them (and any sane individual) that instead of ruining the lives of Jews (and fellow Israeli citizens), they should be protecting them from depradations of terrorists bent on murdering them.

But Security MInister Ehud Barak (Labor), just the day before (25 November 2009), had warned recruits that soldiers' protests against the illegal use of force against Jewish residents in Judea and Samaria would be met with an iron fist.

And Binyamin Netanyahu is determined to bow to the setting sun of the Americans, as did the evil priests in the days immediately before the destruction of the Temple of Solomon, who defecated in front of the Altar of G-d as they faced the sun worshipping it.

Events of the last several weeks or months here in Israel lead inescapably to this conclusion: the day that Jewish residents will have to fire on Jewish policemen and soldiers to protect their homes is approaching rapidly.

The Double Standard of the Hiloní Establishment in Israel

First, let's look at the viciousness of the Border Guards and Israel Police in dealing with Jews here in Judea and Samaria, and the double standard applied in law here, where Arabs are given a nearly free pass, and Jews are treated like trash. It was this kind of evil that brought upon us the Holocaust in Europe - Jews persecuting Jews.

Two days ago, a member of mishmár hag'vúl, the Border Guards who are paramilitary police, was indicted for beating up a national camp demonstrator.

According to Arutz Sheva, this all took place last July. "The police originally claimed they were the ones who were attacked, but authorities accepted a video as evidence that police officer Tal Yemini was the instigator."

The victim, a youth at MaHané Horón, a Samarian community, was shown in the video with Yemini shoving his fist in his nose and eyes, though the boy did not display any aggressive behavior. Nevertheless, the police arrested the youth on charges of "attacking a policeman."

This incident was newsworthy because it was more in the "man bites dog" category than "dog bites man". Members of the Border Guard routinely incite national camp demonstrators and attack them, and then arrest them for "attacking police officers". According to Arutz Sheva, spokesmen for the Civil Rights Organization of Judea and Samaria also charged that Border Police discriminate against Jews by arresting them often without evidence, while routinely releasing Arabs immediately after arrest.

The pigs are the same the world over, telling the same lies, and getting pliable or bought-off judges to go along with their fraud. The instances where the judge does not go along with the fraud and lies are the newsworthy ones.

An example of this is this case where a cop was sued by his victim over how he treated him during the expulsion at 'Amóna, four years ago. Arutz Sheva also reported on this nine days ago on 17 November. According to the article, shotér (Patrolman) David Atia will pay almost NIS 60,000 to David Ladvin, whom he attacked at the protest against demolitions at 'Amona in 2005. Atia was filmed butting Ladvin, his head in his helmet. Nevertheless, note carefully: the judge in the case, Judge Karmi Mosek of the the Jerusalem Magistrates' Court, set aside a criminal conviction of Atia for assault so that he could continue serving on the police - and continue attacking other demonstrators. There may well be other issues involved as well. By setting aside the criminal conviction of shotér Atia, the judge did not interfere with the pazá"m, the system of promoting cops and soldiers according to time served rather than merit or passing of exams. So David Atia will likely wear some kind of rank, and get better pay. Beating up religious Jews pays in the Israel Police.

Not long ago, police expelled Jews from their homes near Hevron - but according to Arutz Sheva, illegal Arab homes with demolition orders ten years old were untouched by the police action.

Judges in many parts of Israel follow along in this mollycoddling of Arab terror. Judge Yuval Shadmi of the Nazareth District Court refused to sentence an Arab youth to jail time for throwing rocks at a police squad car. His reason? He alleged that Jews who do the same thing in Judea and Samaria are not prosecuted or jailed for the same things. Reminders from the the Organization for Civil Rights in Judea and Samaria that the opposite was true, and that considerable evidence of this had been collected already (witness the cases cited above, for example), were ignored by the good judge.

In the meantime, the government violates the agreements it makes with its citizens. The Israeli government had an agreement with a Knesset sub-committee chairman, Ze'ev Elkin (Likud), that no expulsion would be conducted on the Sabbath. And then it swooped down on Homesh - where expelled residents are trying to rebuild homes - on the very Sabbath it agreed not to violate.

Let's end this portion of the article with one more example of what passes for "justice" in this land. In 2005, a fifteen-year-old kid was hitching a ride when two cops accosted him and demanded to see his teudát zehút, his ID papers. He had none. You have to be 16 years of age or older to obtain a teudát zehút. He attempted to tell the cops that and asked them to check his ID through the computer system they have in their cars. They refused. They shoved him in the back of the car on the floor and beat and kicked the boy. According to Arutz Sheva, two soldiers who were at a nearby guard post, and a third soldier who was in the area, testified that they tried to intervene but that the policemen refused to stop beating the boy. The Human Rights Committee of the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria secured the release of the youth and a complaint was filed with police. The upshot? A police disciplinary court fined the two cops NIS 1,200 (about $315) in damages, and no criminal charges were filed against them.

Rights and Wrongs

One should be clear here. The expulsion from Homesh, just like the expulsion from Gush Qatif, was illegal. The residents of all these towns and villages had built their homes and lives at the encouragement and approval of the government of Israel. Every legitimate effort to push this expulsion through failed. All the efforts to "legalize" this expulsion were "k'ílu", in other words, end runs around the law. But it was done; the Hebrew press (following the lead of the anti-Israel media world-wide) beat the drums of contempt for those living in Gaza, Judea and Samaria; it ignored herculean efforts to impress the citizenry; and the government leaders stopped up their ears and committed illegality anyway, expelling the 8,000 residents of Gush Qatif and 2,000 residents of northern Samaria.

In doing so, they broke the law of the land, abusing fiat rights of authority, the kind of tyrannical excesses that used to be common in the monarchy of England, to pave their illegal way. The courts, under the rule of the same Hiloní G-d-hating, Torah-hating elite stood aside and washed its hands, and the government perpetrated treason and ethnic cleansing upon its own people. One would have thought that we were Syrian or Iraqi fellahín, the way the government has acted here, that we could be expelled from our homes, have our lives ruined, or even be killed at the will of the régime of traitors in Jerusalem.

Those who attempt to settle the Land, those who try to rebuild their homes and lives, are in the right. And the Stalinist bastards who do the bidding of the United States and of Europe are in the wrong. The traitors in Jerusalem have sunk to the low sewer of the nastiest Arab tyrants, to the level of the scum and savages who ruin Arabia and Persia. Their goons have sunk with them. They are no better than gutter trash. Bullets are too good for them. There has already been Divine Retribution against the Americans who pressured the Israeli government to do this evil. Divine Retribution will come against the Israeli leaders who are as bad as the Jew-hating dung of Russia and Germany.

In their continued depravity, they defecate upon the honor of the young men and women who put their lives on the line to keep these bastards in office in Jerusalem.

Soldiers' Protests and the Larger Picture

Now, let's look at the events of recent weeks surrounding the k'fir "Young Lions" Battalion of the IDF.

There is a history of difficult relations, if not outright hatred, between the Hiloní (secular and anti-clerical) establishment that controls the army and the press and the religious Jews and their own establishments in the army. As I've pointed out elsewhere, a large proportion of the IDF is religious and loyal to the idea of a G-d of Israel and the mission for the Children of Israel, a mission expressed in various ways, while the top brass is a G-d-hating, Torah-hating establishment, a fossilized remainder from the pre-state days when the left-wing kibbutzim supplied the majority of the fighting men as well as commanders.

As a reminder of this hatred, a Channel 2 news broadcaster called for the dissolution of the hésder yeshivót, which train soldiers who maintain religious values. According to this Arutz Sheva report, Ronny Daniel reminded viewers that former IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz had said at the time of the Disengagement in 2005 that he would "settle accounts" with soldiers who refused to participate in the Disengagement. In case anyone has forgotten (and I'm sure all of you have), Halutz was the IDF CoS who sold his stocks in Israeli firms in July 2006, fearing a decline of their values in a war; he also designed the disastrous strategy that the IDF followed in the Second Lebanon War.

The brigades in the K'fir Battalion, which serves largely in Judea and Samaria, have been protesting the expulsion of Jews by Jewish soldiers in Judea and Samaria by holding up various signs at graduation ceremonies held at the Western Wall saying that their brigade does not expel fellow Jews. While the Hebrew media and the government have tried to focus their anger on the religious Jews in the K'fir Battalion and on the hésder yeshivót which train them, the truth is that religious and secular soldiers alike share this view. And because they are usually the ones called upon to do the evil deed, backing up the more vicious and ideologically motivated Border Guards and Israel Police, they are more sympathetic to the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria - people often beset by outside agitators who try to stir up Arabs against them, as well as by American snoops who try to worm information out of them, and by "peace groups" who commit espionage, funded by foreign countries like Finland and England.

Strictly speaking, the signs at the ceremonies are insubordination and should be punished as such. But, more honestly speaking, these soldiers have been forced to perform illegal political tasks by a government that, in negotiating the surrender of sovereign Jewish land to an enemy, has committed treason in the plain sense of the word. So, if these soldiers rightfully protest the treasonous actions of their government, they are in the right and the government is in the wrong - as it has been ever since it agreed to the Oslo Suicide Accord.

And that is the bottom line here.

Soldiers and Israelis generally can see that the American government is an enemy of this country. American President Obama has, as I hoped he would, stripped away the mask of "friendship" worn by more proficient American liars like George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The reality of the bully/bullied relationship of the United States towards Israel is plain as day now. Obama is the target marker. All those who bow to the will of this evil man and his flunkies are targets - people to be ejected from government here, to be replaced by honest patriots who will not waste their time on the trash from Europe and the United States.

It is time for a man to arise amongst us who will have the courage of Matatyahu the Kohen, the father of the Maccabees, who ran his sword through a Jew who, like Netanyahu, Peres and Barak, bows to the idols of "peace" and falsehood.

Hanukka approaches. May the Almighty grant us a miracle.

Looking at a Moslem's View of Israel


This is taken from an article at Pajamas Media by David Hornik complaining about Israel being bashed in the media. What I'm publishing here is not the article itself but a comment by a person who is obviously a Muslim, expressing his view as a Muslim, a view colored by his religion, not by the hatred the Wahhabi spill continuously against us.  It is worth reading, and worth struggling with, even with his bad English, because it expresses a view that many Moslems hold: that we Jews, if we are to be entitled to our land, must behave in a manner befitting a holy people.   In other words, if we expect to be accepted by Muslims here, we have to behave as our Torah tells us to.  Read on and see what I mean.


I think the only solution for jewish
just do not deny the big facts

1) jesus is prophet of god who came after moses
and really celberated jesus birth day in christmas time with all of us

2) prophet Mohammad is prophet came after jesus
by order of same god jewish beliving

when you deny big two facts
the consequences come to you

or you tell
us 100 years ago certain land belong to you and now you immigrant to palstine and then force to take certain land with a ll army and say this is yours not other people

while if you see moses never fight over land
moses fight over god’s order of and His comments

Moses told you other prophet will come after him

then if you stay with moses’s order

and if we belive ok give jewish land call it
jewish land call it Israel or what ever

most jewish are live outiside of Israel then what we must expect to take those land seperated too

or can we agree if Israel is real god’s order land for jewish
then why you allow gays and homosexual lesbian to have right to live there

then that land is not used for jewish law this is use for land rubbery and other power pull

I do not believe israel as jewish land
ONLY because you respect gays in that country

that is all above is not hate or fashion
this is fact you try to deny

nobody hate jewish people hate ingorant and denier of god’s order

In this man's view, we should recognize Jesus as a prophet (not as a god), and acknowlege that Muhammad is a prophet of G-d, even if he is not our prophet.  Then he asks that we come home. What right do we have to seize this land if we stay away from it?  Finally, he raises the issue of the tolerance here of homosexual behavior, which appears in his eyes to be against Jewish law. And for him, this is the straw that breaks the camel's back.  But at bottom, what this man really demands from us Jews is that we follow our law.  This is his price for us to occupy this land.

This is is a common Muslim view.  It's alright for us to have our land so long as we act as if we deserve that land.  My, how that view coincides with Leviticus 18 and 19!

Bad News at My Doorstep - Analysis of Israel's "Situation"


Originally Published at Blogcritics Magazine on 25 November 2009.

The bad news started coming to my doorstep about three weeks ago. On Thursday afternoon, a young lady knocked on our door asking for charity. She was staying at the girls high school in Ma’alé Levoná after being ejected from her home in Ramat Migron the day before. I did not know where her family is staying, or what they were to do, but I did what I could to help her out. It was a pitiable sum of money – but it was a good part of what we had at the moment.

The next night, eating Sabbath dinner at a neighbor’s house, my wife was complaining about the pains she was enduring because a bus driver had stopped so fast that she fell and suffered from whiplash, and our hostess wanted to help put things in perspective for her by getting her to see that things could be worse. She told us of a neighbor of ours – let’s call him Barry – who was driving home past Sínjil, the Arab village at very the bottom of Levoná, the hill/mountain where we live. Arabs threw rocks through his windshield, spraying him with shattered glass, and they threw another rock through the back windshield, injuring his wife, Lee. He managed to bring the car to a halt, and then to drive up the hill home – where an ambulance promptly took the two of them to a hospital in Jerusalem. This was similar to rock throwing incidents that had occurred over the last couple of months or so, hundreds of them, at Shiló, Elí, Shuafát, Ma’alé Adumím, and other places as well. But this time, we knew the victims. Had it been me and had I Barry’s pistol, I would have also stopped the car – and fired at the Arab attackers, attempting to kill them if I could. But it wasn’t me. I sat and listened to our hostess, and kept my anger to myself.

This may sound like a lot of news, a lot of events occurring here – as though there were a great deal to write about. Truth be told though, overall, not too much has happened newswise in the last twenty years since this interview with the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, z”l, hy”d. Note that this C-Span interview was in February, 1989. If you watch it, and change a few names, you will see the same problems facing the region then as face the region today. An Arab state in Judea and Samaria would be a dagger in the heart of our country. That was true in February 1989, and it is true today as well.

Let’s look at the events that have occurred in the last twenty years to make the situation different.

The Israeli army evacuated south Lebanon

Nine years ago, under the “leadership”, if one wishes to call it that, of Ehud Barak, the IDF “evacuated” south Lebanon. Actually, the evacuation was a rout, and Israeli forces, having signaled that they were leaving, were attacked by HizbAllah, which crowed like drunken braggarts in an back alley that they had “driven” the Zionists from Lebanon. Leaving aside all the talk and endless talk over this hill or that hill the bottom line was this. The cushion that Israel had from missile attack from the north was gone, and HizbAllah was in due course armed by its Shi’a sponsor, Iran. By 2005, tens of thousands of rockets sat in south Lebanon, a new dagger, now aimed at the Galilee.

Arabs launch a terror war in September 2000

Having walked out of “talks” at Camp David in July 2000, the PLO leader and pedophile, Yasser Arafat, orchestrated a rebellion similar to the 1936 rebellion his uncle orchestrated. Over 1,000 Israelis died in terror attacks, many similar to the suicide bombing at the Dophinarium Disco on 1 June 2001. This horrific attack devastated hundreds of lives in Israel, killing 21 young people and wounding over 160. There were shootings in French Hill in Jerusalem – four of them; there was a suicide bombing at the Park Hotel at a Passover Seder, there were attacks in Be’ér Sheva. It took over two years of sustained Arab terror before the Israeli government was even willing to conduct an organized campaign to attempt to stop it. Through all this, through even the seizure and looting of the Christian Church of the Sepulchre in Bethlehem, the government refused to abandon a “peace accord” with the Arab murderers. One has to wonder if these fools belonged in the halls of an insane asylum rather than in the halls of government.

P.S. The Christians blamed Israel for the Arab attack on their church. In my opinion our forces should have blown up the damned church with all the terrorists in it. Then the Christians would have at least had something to whine over with justification.

The Israeli army evacuates Gaza and expels Israeli residents

In an act of treason and cowardice that shall stain this nation until it is corrected, the government of Israel, under heavy American pressure, expelled the Jewish residents of Gush Qatif, 8,000 people who had built a thriving vegetable industry. It uprooted hundreds of families from their homes, destroyed many profitable businesses, and ruined the lives of loyal Israelis – all for the illusory promise of peace from an enemy that only delivers death and war. And all that Israel received for this expulsion of its citizens was the criticism of the world for not destroying itself faster – and thousands of Qassam rockets attacking S’derót, Ashqelón and the kibbutzim surrounding the Gaza Strip. The year after the expulsion, Hamas, the governing terror force there, kidnapped Gil’ád Shalít, who is still held hostage, and began a war against us – a war which spread rapidly into an event that became the defining event of the first decade of the 21st Century for us in Israel.

HizbAllah subjects Israel to rocket attacks from Lebanon

On 12 July 2006, HizbAllah began massive rocket attacks on the Galilee. All things considered, these rocket attacks were very mild. The Katyusha (Katie) rocket only damages when it hits something. It killed a woman drinking coffee on her balcony because it hit the balcony and the woman. But otherwise, if it hit something inanimate, it destroyed it – or if it hit a road, for example, it just sat in the road, having created a small crater. Only 40 people were killed in the bombardment of 4,000 rockets that lasted about a month.

But the rockets sowed terror. Nearly the entire population of the Galilee fled, with the government officials fleeing first, like rats running from a sinking ship. Israel responded to this bombardment, and the response was to go to war. But the tactics used were inefficient, the forward bases were not supplied, the force used was far greater than the force needed because of the way the United States government handcuffed the Israeli “leadership”. The American government would not countenance this tactic or that tactic and the IDF wound up attacking along the “line of expectation” – the place where the enemy expected us to hit. There was no element of surprise at all. It was brute force used, and the brute force was not sufficient to effectively dislodge the enemy. When finally victory was in sight – then and only then did the United States step in and demand a cease-fire.

The corrupted flunkies in Jerusalem who ruin this nation on America’s and Europe’s behalf followed orders like good dogs – proving not only that all we have is falafel, but all we have is a falafel republic as well, a pathetic puppet of American and European imperialists. So, over 100 soldiers sacrificed their lives for absolutely nothing. A neighbor of mine, Eli, explained what he felt our position to be this way. “The Americans have us strangled with the arms, and the Europeans have us strangled with the economy.” He then shrugged his shoulders – a very Gallic shrug (Eli is originally from Marseilles) – as if to say, “there is nothing to be done about it all.” This whole mess became known as the Second Lebanon War – a worse disaster than the First Lebanon War 27 years ago.

In the last three years, HizbAllah has been re-supplied by their Persian masters, and now, they sit on our northern border with more and better rockets than they had in 2006. It is likely that they can hit Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv and possibly even Be’ér Sheva in the northern Negev.

About a year ago, the Hamas terror regime stepped up its rocket attacks on southern Israel, occasionally suffering “work accidents” as careless handling of the rockets caused the Arabs working on them to die. Finally, the IDF attacked Gaza and pretended that they would silence the Qassams from Gaza. The military operation was more designed to get votes for the Kadima and Labor parties than anything else, and while all sorts of idiots and moralists have whined over Operation Cast Lead, the bottom line was that Labor and Kadima got more votes in the February 2009 election; and Jews and Arabs died for nothing. The terrorists still control Gaza, still fire Qassam rockets at Israel, and now are testing missiles that will be able to hit Tel Aviv.

Further, we face renewed war in Lebanon. But the likely intiators of that war, HizbAllah, are presently busy helping the Persians in Yemen, as the Houthi Shi’a face off against the Wahhabi savages (allies/sponsors of the Yemeni regime) there. So, unless we attack Persia, we will have to wait in line to be attacked, while HizbAllah attends to affairs in Yemen. But when this war does come it will be far worse than what we faced in 2006. Michael Totten, writing for Commentary Magazine, confirms my view that HizbAllah will strike the whole country, and that we will see, in this war, the sky scrapers of Tel Aviv go up in flames. According to Totten, “if Hezbollah manages to turn all of Israel into a kill zone where there is no place to run, Israelis will panic like they haven't since the 1973 Yom Kippur War when it briefly appeared the Egyptian army might overrun the whole country. I wouldn't want to be anywhere in Lebanon while Israelis are actively fending off that kind of assault. No country can afford to be restrained while fighting for its survival.” This is not a whole lot different from my own assessment. The streets will run with Arab blood, as Israelis who are basically just Jews come home, sick and tired of restraining themselves, unleash an anger 17 centuries in the making.

It may seem that we in Israel are a “generation lost in space – with no time to start again”. It may seem that all we can do is “clench our fists in rage” as forces of evil and puppets of foreign powers put this land on a sacrificial altar to foreign gods of “peace” and death. But I do not believe so. It has gotten considerably worse than it was in 1989 when Rabbi Meir Kahane, may his memory be a blessing, and may G-d avenge his blood, sat pessimistically estimating the future of the region on C-Span. But he had faith in the G-d of Israel and I “have faith in G-d above” and in His Prophets.

In his forthcoming book, Cracking the Qur’an Code (Root & Branch Association, Ltd), my friend and colleague, Lowell Gallin writes,

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the world will hear Muslims chanting Allahu Akbar (‘God is great’) and Jews chanting Am Yisrael Chai (‘The People of Israel lives’) - Together.

In the not-too-distant past, two brothers, Ishmael the elder and Isaac the younger, buried Abraham their father – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Children of Ishmael and the Children of Israel (Abraham’s grandson and Isaac’s younger son) will replant and rebuild the Lands of Arabia and Israel, as part of a truly new Middle East – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel will wake up and return to the Land of Israel – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Kingdom of David and Solomon will be reestablished in the Land of Israel, and the Twelve Tribes of Israel will ratify selection of the King. Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that two brothers, Nebaioth and Kedar, Ishmael’s first and second born sons, will bring offerings to the rebuilt Third and Final Temple of Jerusalem – Together.

A few years ago, I found myself on a Jerusalem construction site together with an Arab foreman and his two young co-workers. The foreman spoke of the problems plaguing Arabs and Jews in the Promised Land. I said that a descendant of David, the King Messiah, would arise to sit on the throne of his fathers, and that he would bring peace between Arabs and Jews in the Promised Land.

‘When?’ the foreman quietly asked.
‘Soon’, I answered.
No one spoke or moved. Though we were alone on a construction site, and I could easily have had an ‘accident’, I felt no fear of them.
At that moment we were united by our shared fear of God and respect for His servant David, whom the Qur’an describes as a king, a prophet and the author of the Psalms.
When all this transpires – and it will transpire – the trouble will no longer be at my doorstep – it will be at yours.
