Caroline Glick: “[W]e are witnessing how a nuclear armed Iran is changing the face of the Middle East.”

February 7th, 2014

“[W]hether the negotiations go on forever or end at a certain point, the result won’t be a train wreck. It will be Iran with a nuclear bomb or nuclear arsenal in its basement, waiting for a propitious moment to conduct a nuclear weapons test or attack.”, 6/2/2014.

“The steady rain of missiles from Gaza continues.

February 6th, 2014

Another rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists struck the Chof Ashkelon region of southern Israel this afternoon at 2:00 pm. Note the missile counts in the right hand column of this blog []; hardly a morning, afternoon, evening, or night passes without finding southern Israelis running for their lives to their bomb shelters.

There is no reportage of these missile attacks anywhere in the international media.”, today.

“Dividends of peace” (C. Ashton et al.) in Israeli history

February 1st, 2014

Rabin warned that if Israel did not accept an autonomous territory, then it would be forced to accept a state. Peres warned that if Israel did not accept a state in Gaza and the West Bank, it would lose Jerusalem. Sharon warned that if Israel didn’t accept the expulsion of the Jews of Gaza, it would lose everything up to the ’67 borders. Olmert warned that if Israel didn’t accept the partition of Jerusalem, it would lose the entire city.

Israel accepted most of these things and each of the terrible losses it sought to avert came about anyway, not naturally, but because of these prior concessions. The autonomous territory paved the way for a state. The loss of Gaza and the West Bank made Jerusalem next on the schedule.

And now, the Priests of Peace warn that if Israel doesn’t accept a deal that will be based on the ’67 borders and partition Jerusalem, it will be forced to accept a one-state solution that will destroy the country.

Or as Obama put it, “Given the demographics west of the Jordan River, the only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine.” Another way of putting it, a more honest way, is give me what I want or you will be destroyed.

“There are no longer any technical constraints stopping [Iran] from creating missiles loaded with nuclear warheads.

January 30th, 2014

The decision to create such weapons lies in the ‘political will’ of its leaders.” – Jerusalem Post (online) reporting on an “annual US intelligence assessment [that] was presented to the [US] Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.”

Heißer Tipp aus Deutschland: Hallo, Israelis! Keine Angst vorm Sprung ins kalte Wasser!

January 25th, 2014

Mein vorangegangenes Posting bestand in einer Übersetzung eines Teils einer Kolumne von Caroline Glick, in der sie auf die Gefahren aufmerksam macht, denen Israel ausgesetzt wäre, wenn der so genannte Kerry-Plan umgesetzt würde. Kurz gesagt, würde es sich um den Anfang vom Ende Israels handeln.

In diesem Zusammenhang ist es vielleicht angebracht, noch mal zu gucken, wie man die ganze Chose in Deutschland sieht, dem doch Israel eigentlich so am Herzen liegt. Bzw. “als Deutsche”, z. B. als langjährige Korrespondentin für eine linke deutsche Tageszeitung in “Israel und Palästina”. Ist man in solcher Eigenschaft zumindest auch ein wenig um Israel besorgt?

Frieden für Israel und “Palästina” nach John Kerry (Auszug aus einer Kolumne von Caroline Glick)

January 24th, 2014

[J]etzt beabsichtigt Kerry, seine eigenen Parameter vorzulegen, die der PLO sogar noch mehr entgegenkommen als diejenigen der Clinton- und der Bush-Regierung.

Wie der Clinton- und der Bush-Plan umfassen die Kerry-Parameter die Abtretung von Jerusalem und des Tempelbergs durch Israel an die PLO, und damit wird die historische Tatsache verworfen, dass an diesem Ort, der die Wiege der jüdischen Zivilisation und Geschichte und für das Judentum die heiligste Stätte gewesen ist und bleiben wird, zwei jüdische Tempel gebaut wurden.

Sie würden die massenhafte Vertreibung von Hunderttausenden von Juden aus ihren Häusern in Jerusalem, Judäa und Samarien mit sich bringen, um Platz für einen antisemitischen judenfreien Staat zu schaffen, der der Zerstörung des jüdischen Rumpfstaats verschrieben bleiben wird.

Mahmoud Abbas, the PA chief who celebrates anti-Semitic murderers,

January 22nd, 2014

once his new judenrein Arab “state” would be realized, would have quite a lot of “security work” to do, wouldn’t he? I mean, not in order to save Jews in Israel, but in order to curb excessive competition so that he can stay in power himself and send almost exclusively his own terrorists into the remainder of Israel.

3 east Jerusalem al-Qaida recruits arrested, ‘planned massive bombings’“.

Shin Bet arrests men recruited online by Gaza operative working for al-Qaida chief Ayman Al-Zawahiri; suicide and truck bombs part of massive terror plot; targets included Jerusalem Convention Center.

The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced on Wednesday that it arrested three Palestinians from east Jerusalem recruited online by an al-Qaida operative in Gaza, who were in the midst of preparations to carry out a string of large-scale bombing and shooting attacks on multiple targets in Israel.
The intended targets included the Jerusalem Convention Center, a bus traveling between the capital and Ma’aleh Adumim, the US embassy in Tel Aviv, and emergency responders who would have arrived at the scene of attacks. [Jerusalem Post online]

“Kerry Intifada”? Young Jew Eden Atias murdered by Arab jihadist while sleeping on a bus

November 13th, 2013

“We make difficult concessions for which we pay in human lives, while the Palestinians only talk. [...] The current situation endangers our sons and daughters while the PA celebrates the release of murderers. This is intolerable and must stop immediately.” [Knesset Finance Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky] Read the rest of this entry

Demands of the current rulers of the “Arab occupied areas of Judea and Samaria” (according to Joshuapundit)

November 7th, 2013

The Palestinians are demanding over half of Jerusalem, including control of all of the major Jewish holy sites. They claim all of Judea and Samaria, although they’ve agreed to consider a land swap of no more than 1.9 percent with Israel in exchange for money and an equivalent amount of Israeli land. That 1.9 percent would essentially be meaningless since it isn’t anywhere near the amount of land necessary to incorporate the majority of Jewish communities into Israel.  Geographically, it would amount to a defenseless enclave surrounded on two sides by the Palestinians.

Muchnicerspeak from near Munich

October 22nd, 2013

A study conducted byf [sic] the German government reveals that 82 major attacks took place on synagogues within a five year period. Vandals and terrorists left notes connecting their attacks with the Israel-Palestinian conflict. “So long as you do not give the Palestinians peace, we are not going to give you peace,” read many of these notes. [Giulio Meotti, in: Israel National News, 20 October 2013]

According to the German newspaper Die Welt, last August, in Germany, “in the former prisoners bath” of the former concentration camp in Dachau (near Munich), when asked by the former prisoner Uri Chanoch, “who [... ] lives in Israel,” “what message he should take home from this meeting,” (according to Chanoch) the head of the German government, Angela Merkel, replied: “Make peace!”

“The time is five minutes to midnight.”

October 14th, 2013

“Israel faces serious threats from Iran, its Sunni rivals and their proxy terrorist armies inside and around its borders, but its biggest threat may come from its own left.” – Daniel Greenfield (more)

P.S.: As if she wanted to illustrate Daniel Greenfield’s conclusion, Labor Party head Shelly Yechimovich said today in the Israeli parliament:

“Why the talk of the ‘apocalypse?’,” [...] “We survived Pharaoh in Egypt, we lived through the destruction of the First and Second Temples, the Holocaust, the War of Independence, the Yom Kippur War, and much more. The Jewish people are not in danger.”

See? The Jewish people are not in danger because they lived through almost everything imaginable and unimaginable. The Jewish people might have to suffer a little bit more in the near future, but on a worldwide scale as many as two thirds of them survived even the Holocaust, for instance. That’s why the Jewish people are not in any danger even now.

Who cares about Jewish individuals. Who cares about Israel. Who cares about a second Holocaust, prepared and perpetrated by Iran.

Perché bombardare la Siria non aiuterà Israele

September 16th, 2013

di Daniel Greenfield

Uno degli argomenti più noti per bombardare la Siria è che questo aiuterà Israele.

Israele non ha bisogno di questo tipo di aiuto. Gli israeliani distrussero con successo un reattore nucleare siriano nel 2007. Durante la guerra civile siriana, Israele lanciò una serie di colpi contro bersagli siriani. Semmai, un intervento della NATO inibirà la capacità di Israele di operare nello spazio aereo siriano, visto che – come avvenne durante la guerra del Golfo – Israele è tenuto fuori dal conflitto per motivi politici, e cioè per evitare di offendere i musulmani.

Sowing wind

Theodor W. Adorno’s categorical imperative saying that everything should be organised in a way that Auschwitz cannot repeat itself has been turned into its opposite: especially since the beginning of the “Arab spring”, everything is increasingly being organised in a way that it is most probable for it to happen again soon.
