Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Murder, He Claimed; Allahu Akhbar, He Recited

Wanna know who the victim was? Wanna know whodunnit?  Just ask this fine Californian specimen:

 To quote the uploader,
Dr. Hafiz Mohammed Khalid Sidiqqi said in a June 21, 2019 Friday sermon at Masjid Darussalam in San Francisco, which is the largest mosque in downtown San Francisco and which is managed by the Islamic Society of San Francisco, that former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who died recently, had been murdered by Zionist agents. He said that there are many of these agents in the Muslim world working for Satan. Dr. Siddiqi said that Morsi had only been trying to help humanity by spreading the truth of Islam and its message of justice throughout the world, but that the "forces of evil" did not allow it and will not allow it until the Muslims "connect" with each other and "establish the kind of unity that is required." Dr. Siddiqi's website says that he has been serving the Bay Area and the U.S. since 1983. It says that he currently lectures in Islamic Studies and Arabic at Chabot College, at Mission College, at Ohlone College, and at the Graduate Theological Union's Center for Islamic Studies, and that he is the Director of the Islamic Education and Information Center and the founder of the Islamic Law Council. Dr. Siddiqi holds a PhD in Quranic Studies from the University of London and a Master's in Quranic Exegesis from Al-Azhar University in Egypt. The video was uploaded to a YouTube page called IqraTube, which is run by Dr. Siddiqi.
And not long ago in a school classroom in the contemporary homeland of deluded old King Cnut, who when in England tried but failed to turn back the tide, an encroaching sea of indoctrination courtesy of a contemptible female teacher evidently salivating for dhimmitude:

Fatah's Fury

On Facebook, CAABU (the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding) founded in 1967 to turn British public opinion against Israel, condemns an "Islamophobic" letter it's received from a Brit, but fails to explain exactly what is wrong with the assumptions given in the letter.

If its "educational programme" is, er, honest, so, surely, on many of those assumptions, must it fail.

Meanwhile, as this video shows:
"Clashes broke out between protesters and Israeli police near a checkpoint in Bethlehem on Tuesday as hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets to protest against the US' Israel-Palestine peace plan, as a US-led workshop aimed at discussing the US $50 billion proposal with regional leaders kicked off the same day. Dozens of protesters were reportedly injured in the clashes. One injured protester was seen being carried to ambulance. Footage also shows demonstrators putting a noose around US President Donald Trump's effigy before setting it on fire. Protesters also pasted pictures of Trump and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Bin Salman on a donkey before parading it through the streets. The so-called 'Deal of the Century,' which was unveiled by the White House on Saturday, promises to create 1 million new jobs for Palestinians and lists 179 possible infrastructure projects, including a highway between the West Bank and Gaza. However, the proposal has been met with hostility by Palestinians frustrated by the discounting the possibility of returning to their former homes."

David Singer: Trump Should Stop Billions Being Poured into Gaza and West Bank

Here's the latest article by Sydney lawyer and international affairs analyst David Singer.

He writes:

President Trump should not allow the euphoria that swept the world following the 27 November 2007 Annapolis Conference to infect the Manama Conference being jointly hosted by himself and Bahrain on 25-26 June.

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s closing remarks at Annapolis were brimming with hope:
“The conference began with the joint announcement by Prime Minister Olmert and President Abbas that they will begin negotiations to establish a Palestinian state and to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace with the goal of concluding an agreement by the end of the year 2008”
Under their Joint Understanding Olmert and Abbas committed: 
“to immediately implement their respective obligations under the Performance-Based Road Map to a Permanent Two-State Solution to the Israel-Palestinian Conflict, issued by the Quartet on 30 April 2003 (hereinafter, "the Roadmap") and agree to form an American, Palestinian and Israeli mechanism, led by the United States, to follow up on the implementation of the Roadmap. The parties further commit to continue the implementation of the ongoing obligations of the Roadmap until they reach a peace treaty. The United States will monitor and judge the fulfillment of the commitments of both sides of the Roadmap. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, implementation of the future peace treaty will be subject to the implementation of the Roadmap, as judged by the United States”
Conference attendees included:
• Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
• Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas
 • President Bush
 and representatives from:
• Quartet members – United Nations, European Union and Russia
• Organisation of Islamic Cooperation
• Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan Lebanon, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen
• 30 other States including Canada, China, France, Germany,Japan and the United Kingdom
 A follow-up Donors’ Conference was held in Paris on 17 December 2007. 

Delegations from 87 countries and international organisations pledged a total of US$7.4 billion to support Palestinian institution-building and economic recovery for the next three years.

Of this amount, US$3.4 Billion was pledged for 2008. This amount included:
“humanitarian assistance, which was essential to help relieve the daily lives of the Palestinian population, especially in Gaza.”
The International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Economy for the Reconstruction of Gaza was held in Sharm El-Sheikh on 2 March 2009. Participants pledged approximately US$4.48 billion covering the next two years.

They committed themselves to:
“start disbursing these pledges as quickly as possible in order to rapidly impact the daily lives of the Palestinians.”
 Pouring billions into Gaza and the West Bank has not relieved or impacted the daily lives of Gaza and the West Bank’s Arab populations.

The promised “Permanent Two-State solution” is dead and buried.

Trump and those attending Manama need to focus on how their new pledges will best help the daily lives of these captive populations still being governed by their 2007 rulers – Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organisation.

The Manama Conference should consider:
• Funding new residential and infrastructure programsin neighbouring countries such as Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia and 
• Encouraging the legal migration of West Bank and Gazan Arabs to such countriesby offering them financial incentives to help themachieveprosperity and a better life for themselves and their families.
The invitees tothe Manama Conference will reportedly not include Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has refused to attend. Hamas has rejected the conference being held.

The Manama Conference should not continue pouring billions of dollars into these bottomless pits of misery and despair ruled by groups who will:
• not allow free elections and
• never recognise Israel as the national home of the Jewish people
 Manama 2019 will hopefully not repeat the mistakes of Annapolis, Paris and Sharm El-Sheik.

David Singer: Trump Reverses Obama-UN treachery on West Bank and East Jerusalem

Here's the latest article by Sydney lawyer and international affairs analyst David Singer.

He writes:

President Trump’s decision to back Israel’s claims to sovereignty in the West Bank and Jerusalem has resurrected America’s commitment to the Jewish people made by President Bush and Congress in 2004 after that commitment had been subsequently repudiated by President Obama in the last month of his Presidency in December 2018.

Bush’s Congress-endorsed commitment was given to Israel in a letter from President Bush to then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on 14 April 2004.  Bush confirmed that America regarded it as unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority would see Israel withdraw from all of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

President Bush’s commitment was overwhelmingly endorsed by Congress by 502 votes to 12.

Bush’s commitment procured Israel’s unilateral disengagement from Gaza and part of the West Bank in 2005 involving the forcible removal of 8000 Jews living there – a decision which has had disastrous consequences for both Israel’s and Gaza’s civilian populations after Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007 from the Palestine Liberation Organization.

President Obama shredded this Bush Congress-endorsed commitment when he abstained – rather than vetoed Security Council Resolution 2334 on 23 December 2016, which declared:
 “the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace”
Secretary of State John Kerry offered this pathetic explanation on 28 December 2016 for Obama’s failure to veto Resolution 2234:
“the vote in the United Nations was about preserving the two-state solution.  That’s what we were standing up for: Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state, living side by side in peace and security with its neighbours.  That’s what we are trying to preserve for our sake and for theirs.”
Resolution 2334 however was asserting:
  • The West Bank and East Jerusalem were “Palestinian territory” and
  • 600,000 Jews currently living there had no legal entitlement to do so despite the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine and article 80 of the United Nations own Charter legally vesting that right in the Jewish people.
Obama and Kerry were knowingly complicit in America not vetoing this overtly-hostile anti-Jewish Security Council resolution. Obama invariably had vetoed similar Security Council resolutions during his eight years as president.

Obama’s then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had misleadingly denied on 6 June 2009 that any such Bush-era commitment existed. Yet she had voted in the Senate to endorse Bush’s commitment on 24 June 2004 when a Senator.

Obama’s refusal to veto Resolution 2334 as he was exiting the White House – leaving this poisoned chalice behind for President Trump – was shameful.

Trump recognition of Israel’s right to retain portions of the West Bank and East Jerusalem has restored America’s reputation for honouring commitments made by its president and endorsed by its Congress.

Trump’s decision sends a clear message to the United Nations that it needs to act in accordance with its Charter if it is to have any influence or relevance in ending the Arab-Jewish conflict.

Trump has also put the Arab States on notice that America stands strong in its continuing support for Israel and its claims to sovereignty in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The sooner the Arab States understand this change in America’s position post-Obama – the sooner Trump’s yet to be released “deal of the century” has a chance of succeeding.

Obama and the United Nations’ treacherous attempt to entrap Trump has spectacularly failed.

In English High Street Toothless Tigers Try to Bite Puma

In Reading High Street on the weekend, members of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign's Slough branch evidently had little success as they try to interest shoppers in the BDS movement's boycott of brand Puma.

Our old mate Alex Seymour/Seymour Alexander was on hand to record "activities".

French intellectual Guy Millière, of the University of Paris, reminds us here that, perversely, there is in France one source of antisemitism which authorities don't seem keen on naming.

It's a source of antisemitism that the people in this video can identify all too well.

As a "companion piece" to my last post, here's Katie talking to French Jews and others who have made aliya (or in Katie's word, joined the "Jexodus" from the old homeland) due to that very source ofantisemitism ...  The emphasis on France begins from abour 16:14, and after a brief segment about what's happening (and not for the better) in Italy, there is much emphasis on France and on Israel, where a most personable rabbi talks frankly: "You are not safe, and we are more safe than you", he says  ...

David Singer: Trump Recognizes Israeli Claims in West Bank and East Jerusalem

Here's the latest article by Sydney lawyer and international affairs analyst David Singer.

He writes:

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has set a cat among the pigeons with his claim that:
“Under certain circumstances I think Israel has the right to retain some, but unlikely all, of the West Bank.”
Friedman clearly was speaking for the Trump administration – not just himself personally – when he continued:
“We really don’t have a view until we understand how much, on what terms, why does it make sense, why is it good for Israel, why is it good for the region, why does it not create more problems than it solves. These are all things that we’d want to understand, and I don’t want to prejudge.”
Friedman accused the Obama administration – which in the last month of Obama’s presidency  allowed passage of a United Nations resolution in December 2016 condemning Israeli settlements as a “flagrant violation” of international law – of giving credence to Palestinian Arab arguments “that the entire West Bank and East Jerusalem belong to them.”

Friedman asserted:
“Certainly Israel’s entitled to retain some portion of it”
Friedman was spot on.

The right of the Jewish people to reconstitute the Jewish National Home in at least some parts of the West Bank and East Jerusalem was recognised by:
  • the 1920 San Remo Conference
  • the 1920 Treaty of Sevres,
  • articles 6 and 25 of the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine (Mandate) and
  • article 80 of the 1945 United Nations Charter
Friedman’s criticism of the  United Nations attempt to subvert the Jewish people's legal rights created under the Mandate and preserved under the United Nations’ own Charter to “close settlement by Jewson the land including State lands and waste land not required for public purposes” located in the West Bank and East Jerusalem was justified and long overdue..

Friedman postulated:
“The absolute last thing the world needs is a failed Palestinian state between Israel and Jordan,”
He could have also added that:
  • Jordan is a Palestinian Arab state that has occupied 78% of the land comprised in the Mandate for Palestine since 1922
  • Redrawing the international boundary between Jordan and Israel in direct negotiations between those two states as successor States to the Mandate could see parts of the West Bank and East Jerusalem incorporated within each of these two existing states thereby eliminating any danger a failed third state would pose to their security and existence.
Interestingly – Friedman indicated that Trump’s long-awaited “deal of the century” might not even be released if Trump believed it would do more harm than good.

Friedman reportedly said the United States would coordinate closely with Jordan – which could face unrest among its large Palestinian population over a plan perceived as overly favourable to Israel.
 “We don’t want to make things worse. Our goal is not to show how smart we are at the expense of people’s safety.”
Trump has seemingly anointed Jordan to replace the rejectionist Palestine Liberation Organization as Israel’s negotiating partner on the future of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

It now appears that Trump’s proposals will not see the light of day unless Trump receives an unqualified assurance from Jordan that it is willing to negotiate with Israel before the plan’s details are released.

Recognising Israel has claims in the West Bank and East Jerusalem sends a clear signal to Jordan and the rest of the Arab World that time is not on their side. The opportunity to yet again miss another opportunity to make peace looms large.

Trump has targeted the West Bank and East Jerusalem – as he already has in West Jerusalem and the Golan Heights – with amazing prescience.

Silence of the Ma'ams

Strange how anti-female outrages of this sort evoke scarce a whimper of protest from today's feministas.

Or how that staunch feminist, Julia Gillard, in 2013 when Australian prime minister, specifically exempted Islam from scrutiny by the Royal Commission into  Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that proceeded to probe Christian and Jewish ones with gusto. 

This new Prager University video, featuring Heather Higgins, chairman of the Independent Women's Forum and CEO of Independent Women's Voice, takes a wee look at the hypocrisy of the media sisterhood.

Yep. That's the Pussy Hat brigade to a T.

"Dirty, Predatory, Reptilian, Vile, & Wicked ..."

 Gee! Nobody's perfect, but that's a bit thick!

It's what this devastatingly handsome young fella thinks of "the enemies" of Iran, and he lists those enemies in ascending order of, well, all those things, "the Zionists" (now, ain't that a surprise?) being the worst of all.

 To quote the translator and uploader,
'Ayatollah Alireza Ebadi, Khamenei's representative in the Iranian city of Birjand, said in a May 31, 2019 Friday sermon that aired on Khorasan Jonoobi TV (Iran) that Iran's "impure and evil" enemy are a "fusion" of Jews and polytheists, and he described it as a dirty, predatory, reptilian, satanic, vile, and wicked "crossbreed of dogs and wolves" that has "pounced on the convoy of humanity."
 He said that the U.S. was built by oppressive Europeans on the graves of 80 million indigenous people, but that the Zionists are the worst of Iran's enemies.
 Ayatollah Ebadi then told a story about a doctor who wanted to cure himself of feeling connected to the village fool, and Ebadi said that, likewise, anyone who is attached to the West and its "dirty, anti-human, liberal-democratic ideology that has destroyed the world" should cure themselves.'

From the distracted, embarrassed looks on some of the listeners' faces, I'd wager that not everyone takes what he's saying too seriously ...

David Singer: Netanyahu will be Israel’s next Prime Minister – with Trump’s help

Here's the latest article by Sydney lawyer and international affairs analyst David Singer.

He writes:

The abrupt termination of Israel’s 21st Parliament with new elections being called for 17 September has seen the New York Times claiming that Israel has been plunged into unprecedented political chaos.

A more sober assessment – based on comparing Israel’s 2015 election results with the April 2019 results – provides a different picture – in which Prime Minister Netanyahu will be returned once again as Israel’s next Prime Minister.

In an earlier article written in March, I opined:
“The cards have certainly been stacked against Benjamin Netanyahu being Israel’s next Prime Minister after three recent major developments — but he is by no means down and out.”
Those developments were:
  1. Israeli Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit’s decision to pursue Netanyahu for alleged criminal offences.
  2. Three political parties coalescing into the Blue and White Party promising that two of the three previous leaders — former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid — would each be Prime Minister for half of the next Government’s term of office.
  3. Netanyahu’s role in precipitating a marriage of convenience between Jewish Home, National Union and an extreme right-wing party Otzma Yehudit with alleged links to the assassinated Rabbi Meir Kahane’s banned political party Kach
I pointed out then that:
“The 2015 election results provide a useful guide as to the likely impact these three developments might have on Netanyahu’s chances:
  • the Likud Party only received 23.4% of the vote—hardly a ringing endorsement for Netanyahu and
  • 72% of those eligible voted—very high when compared to America’s 58.1%.
Likud’s low supporter-base seems unlikely to desert Netanyahu.
Voter turnout would have to increase dramatically or huge swings away from other right-wing parties would be needed to give Blue and White the nod needed to be invited by President Rivlin to form a coalition Government ahead of Netanyahu.
The unknown elephants in the room are the number of terrorist attacks and international political developments affecting Israel in the next five weeks that will concentrate voters’ minds — when actually casting their votes – on who can best safeguard their personal safety and Israel’s security.
Netanyahu is certainly not out of the race”.
Netanyahu won that race – the April 2019 election results revealing:
  1. Voter turnout went down from 72% to 68%
  2. Netanyahu’s Likud party vote went up from 23.4% to 26.46%
  3. The party forcing the fresh September elections by refusing to join a Likud-led coalition – Yisrael Beiteinu headed by Avigdor Liberman – saw its vote reduced from 214906 to 173004
These results should become more pronounced after voters evaluate the outcome of the Conference to be co-hosted by President Trump and Bahrein in Manama on 25/26 June to be attended by Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar – with Egypt, Jordan and Israel (represented by Netanyahu’s caretaker Government) and other regional Arab states expected to also attend.
The US State Department has confirmed the Conference will go ahead notwithstanding Israel’s snap elections in September.
Add to this the likely possibility that before the September elections:
  • Trump could recognise Israel’s political claims to sovereignty in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) as he did in the Golan Heights prior to the April elections
  • There could be further terror attacks against Israel from Gaza and the West Bank followed by swift Netanyahu-directed responses
Trump has already pronounced his feelings on Israel’s September elections:
“Bibi got elected. Now, all of a sudden, they’re going to have to go through the process again until September? That’s ridiculous.”
Netanyahu – based on the April 2019 election results and Trump’s anticipated pro-Israel decisions – is odds-on favourite to be Israel’s next Prime Minister.
