Israel’s Tragic Flaw, II

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And I say the Two-State Solution is as much of a phantom as the phantom Palestinian Nation. It is totally not of this world.

What does a Two-Stater like Dennis Ross have in mind when he speaks this way? I assume he imagines a new, independent Arab state in Judea and Samaria absent any Israeli presence. He imagines a “Palestinian” state on the western slopes of the hills of Samaria and Judea looking down into the coastal plain, into Tel-Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport.

On this slope in Judea on winter mornings when the air is at its clearest in the year, with the sun rising in the east, one can see the chimney of the Reading power station on the beach north of Tel-Aviv all the way south past Holon and Bat Yam, the Ashdod, Ashqelon and the power station at the northern end of the Gaza Strip.

The Two-State Solution, one assumes, envision this territory, at an elevation of over 2000 feet above sea level, handed over to the Arabs, who we know in their majority are devotees of the Muslim Brotherhood, locally known as HAMAS.

And I ask of Dennis Ross and all the Two-Staters, “You gotta be kidding? Which Israeli government is going to agree to drive all the Jews from their homes and turn the real estate over to the Arabs?”

Obama’s Love Bombing
     May 26, 2015 - 7:56 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Well, it appears that last week’s meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and Europe’s Czarina of Foreign Policy went well from Israel’s point of view. One should not be surprised.

I have no inside information but judging by the photos of their photo-op before the media post-meeting, the antiJewess Mogherini was smiling much more than during their previous meeting. Namely, she liked what the Prime Minister had to say which, as reported today, may have been pure, glatt kosher taurine excreta.

Today Minister of Agriculture and long-time settlement leader Uri Ariel of HaBayit HaYehudi said that if there is truth to the reports of Netanyahu’s desire to renew negotiations with the so-called Palestinian Authority and to discuss the boundaries of the settlement blocs, this is dangerous and contradicts the first article of the government guidelines, the people’s right to the land of Israel…its historic national homeland.”

Sounds good to me for it sends the message that Mogherini wants to hear: Bibi is retreating.

But I say, “Fiddlesticks. It is no accident that today the enemy PA rejected the idea of discussing the boundaries, the limits to the geography of the settlement blocs because, as Bibi well knows, that means accepting the existence of the settlement blocs which he knows since Day One of the Oslo Abomination, the Arabs have said they will never accept. Literally from Day One, 13 September 1993, the enemy said there will no peace so long as any settlement remains…

Provincial Israel
     May 21, 2015 - 6:51 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…You know what Islamophobia is? It’s the attempt to do to non-Muslims what Pres. Obama did after the massacre at Ft. Hood. It is an attempt to make people deny the reality of their senses and common sense; to persuade them that what they think they saw they did not. Said Obama, “Islam had nothing to do with Ft. Hood,” and by implication anyone who thinks that is Islamophobic, has an irrational animus against Islam.

When the head-chopping festivals on TV started some months back, Obama was there to tell you to modify your feelings and thoughts because, you know, during the Crusades Christians also did terrible things too. Moral equivalence is multiplying two negative numbers and coming with a positive one. If both sides are guilty of terrorism, Arabs of terrorism and Israeli soldiers of war crimes, the guilt of the Arabs, by comparison, fades. When both sides are guilty, no side is guilty. They cancel each other out.

So yours truly was disheartened by the government’s action today. Again, just for the sake of avoiding pointless clashes with the Enlightened who yesterday shrieked “Apartheid! Racism!” it would have been better to delay until Her Majesty of Enlightened Political Science Dr. Mogherini was no longer in the country. But once that screw-up screwed up, the government should have pushed back at the antisemitic venom spewed at us for “Apartheid! Racism! It is the color of these Arabs’ skin that led to this program because Israelis are racists and just can’t stand the way the Arabians look physically.”

No Self-Respect
     May 19, 2015 - 7:32 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Yes, I think Bibi has been his own worst enemy. His Bar-Iran speech had short-term successes but at a terrible price. He himself has contributed to the rise of BDS and violent antisemitism by affirming in the minds and hearts of world antiJewry the rightness of creating a Balestinian state. He has admitted that the Balestinians are entitled to a state, and so the issue for today’s Mogherinis is whether Netanyahu is a liar. He said he supports the Two-State Solution just like every enlightened person who wants to do justice to the “victims of Zionism,” so at stake is not that desire at all. In the matter of statehood, Netanyahu is on board. The issue at hand is his sincerity. Does he keep his word?

Bibi’s Bar-Ilan speech was like a new, wonder drug that saves the patient in immediate danger but then leads to terrible, long-term consequences.

The only way for Israel to combat the dragon of anti-hatred growing daily, it seems, is to plunge a sword into its heart and its basic claim that the Jews stole Palestine from the Balestinians. In truth, the Arabs never knew there was such a country with that name; Israel stole nothing, and statehood for “Palestinians” is nothing but an Orwellian smoke screen…

Jerusalem, 1967

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…So on that first day of the war and the second, the Israeli Government said nothing, and the Arab governments did not stop announcing great victories. “The oil refineries in Haifa that been destroyed! Syrian officers are already sitting in the cafes in Tel-Aviv!” – presumably like Wehrmacht offizieren sitting in the cafes in Paris in 1940 ordering the French around.

A miserable 48 hours was that cloud of unknowing.

But then on Wednesday, the Israelis started to raise the curtain on what had happened which left the world stunned. Not only had there been no Holocaust, the IDF had smashed the military establishments of four Arab states.

And not only that. That day, the IDF had driven the Jordanians from Jerusalem and the wall dividing the city was already being taken down by Israeli volunteers…

Hating Jews is Hating G-d
     May 14, 2015 - 7:09 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…With a world this crazy when it comes to Jews, the only explanation is the existence of G-d with man still fighting Him.

For some, the Holocaust was proof of the non-existence of G-d. For yours truly, something that enormous proves just the opposite…

A Chronic Jewish Temptation
     May 12, 2015 - 8:04 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Well, I have avoided until now any words on the top story in Israel which remains the struggle by Netanyahu to form a government and it is not pretty. Everybody is coming off dirty. Boogie Herzog and Co. are simply shameless, virtually comatose in their hostility to the people of Israel who voted clearly for Bibi to lead them. This nitwit said yesterday he was going to replace Bibi, bring him down – and never mind the implicit sneering at the clear wish of the voters for him.

On the other side, Bibi has to promise millions of taxpayers’ shekels to finance the invention of utterly useless government ministries to satisfy his shameless Likudniks demand for them.

He is in the middle of legislation cancelling legislation that limits a government to 18 ministries, and thus makes a mockery of legislation as a serious endeavor. I remember when Assad. Jr. was made dictator in Damascus after the death of his father. The Syrian constitution said he was too young, so one morning their so-called parliament voted to write a new constitution.

In these days, Israel seems not much better…

Obama’s Plot
     May 10, 2015 - 7:29 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Is it just yours truly, or do others see that behind the scenes of international politics, the engine of the war against Israel is the same-old same-old?

In any case, I find current scenario fascinating display of the same-old same-old only now denied by the Jew-haters. That has been one of the lasting effects of the Holocaust. Until then, antisemitic ideas, that is, the word, the attempt to explain to Jew-hatred in pseudo-academic, pseudo-scientific terms apart from classical religious calumny, had been in many quarters a legitimate subject. Only at the end did antisemitism connote mass murder. From the mid-19th century until the Final Solution, legions of thinkers had pondered the revulsion people felt in the presence of Jews — I have seen and experienced that myself – and many of them, Jews included, came up with logical explanations and all toward resolving the hatred by basically dejudaizing the Jews. That was very much the project of the secular Zionist themselves…

The Non-Jewish Jew
     May 7, 2015 - 6:03 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…So there is to be a new government with the backing of 61 MKs only, which no one expects to last, and the result is toxic cascades of verbal nastiness. JPost’s political reporter Gil Hoffman wrote under the headline, “Time for Revenge” for those politicians who have felt slighted by the prime minister, and what is significant is that none of them is politically opposed to him. For sure, Boojie Herzog sneered but of course, he is the opposition. In contrast, the MSM today was full of politicians of the right who have a score to settle with Netanyahu for his mistreatment of them.

Notice this has little to do with policy and everything with personal ego. And I suspect that the common denominator is all those offended by him felt he did not see things their way and did not treat them as equals.

And I think this is a legacy of the dominant Zionist Left that led the Israelis into independence with their half-baked notions of democracy, half-baked in part because most of them grew up abroad in countries with no strong history of liberal democracy. For them, these social democrats, a government was a committee, as in the central committee of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union…

Ethiopians Riot
     May 5, 2015 - 7:26 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Well, the big story domestically since last Thursday has been of course the violence in Jerusalem by a crowd of Ethiopian Jews and Sunday’s even bigger riot in Tel-Aviv. The charge in the air is racism but I’m afraid that’s only partly true.

The whole thing started of course with that video a week ago yesterday of that Israeli cop attacking this Ethiopian soldier in Bat Yam standing peacefully with his bicycle, who appears to exchange some words with this cop who suddenly lunges for him and proceeds to beat him up. Not a pretty sight.

Yes, racism may have played a part, but I don’t think that is the whole story.

I look forwarded to learning at some point what they said to each other. It appears the cop spoke, then the soldier Damas Pakada…

Switching Good and Evil
     May 3, 2015 - 7:29 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Jimmy Carter, for sure, remains an active Christian as he experiences that religion. A few years ago, there was a news story of audio tapes of Jimmy Carter teaching Sunday school in Plains, Georgia, teach his church’s children of the perfidy of the Jews in such a way it was not a historical narrative but current events.

And what does Israel have to say about this man and others like him? Official Israel shuns him but does not mark him for the classical, stereotypical Jew-hater that he is.

There is something timeless about this behavior. The very idea of Jews and the undeniable reality that they are not only still around and after centuries of Hell at the hands of lunatic haters, they have carried out the prophecy in their Bible of returning from exile and restoring their ancient homeland to life.

Men like Jimmy Carter cannot deal with this. Yes, he went to Annapolis and studied nuclear engineering, but he remains a peanut farmer and mired in the mentality of mankind of the distant past…

Turkey’s Hitlerian President
     April 30, 2015 - 6:57 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The TV documentary shows interviews with other Turkish academics and writers who claim the Jews use Darwin’s theory of evolution to claim that G-d created them but everyone else evolved from apes.

And never mind such a magical transformation between men and apes, men and swine, is explicitly in the Koran, nowhere in the Tanakh.

And then an advisor to President Erdogan claims that all anti-government activities in Turkey are in fact attempts by the Mastermind to bring down Turkey and its government.

This would be like Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice claiming that the Jews in America are behind all the criticism of the President.

In other words, I tell you all this, to make the point that Islam today has replaced Nazism as the primary vehicle of the kind of lunatic Jew-hatred that has been our fate to endure for thousands of years. The Christian and post-Christian West may have moved on from phantasmagorical beliefs in the supernatural evil of Jews to just lying about plausible evil, but not the Muslims. If this is how the powers that be in Turkey think, like the regimes in Tehran, Riyadh, Damascus, Baghdad and Sanaa, we are faced with sea of Islamic Jew-hatred as potentially dangerous as any enemy in our history.

I used to think that post-Holocaust and with all the attention given to the horror over the last couple of decades, that kind of crazy Jew-hatred was a thing of the past.

In light of Islam today, apparently not. Said Kohelet/The Book of Ecclesiastes, there is nothing new under the sun…

The Two-State Threat
     April 28, 2015 - 7:06 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…On the political front, our usual beat, I imagine you all saw Wendy Sherman, Under Secretary of State threaten Israel and not for the first time with a knife in the back if we don’t kowtow to the wishes of her master, the Imam in the Oval Office.

Sherman, remember, is by academic training a social worker, a profession not known for its tough mindedness, and so it is no wonder that when she presided in 1994 over the negotiations with North Korea over its nuclear ambitions under President Clinton, that turned out to a fiasco of incompetence.

But never mind. She has in her heart what Robespierre called the proper virtu, proper philosophical temperament. In his day, during the Terror in the French Revolution, a politician without the proper virtu was sent to the guillotine by him. Sherman of course does not have that power, but she remains in charge of the nuclear negotiations with Iran over its nuclear ambitions. Heaven help us.

Anyway, she addressed a gathering of so-called Reform Jews who I know from personal experience haven’t got a clue what it really means to be a Jew and thus whose views of Israel are commonly all mixed up; mixed up with what’s fashionable inside the Beltway, where political philosophy is dominated by the old line White Anglo Saxon Protestant aristocracy…

An IBJ Terrorism Expert
     April 26, 2015 - 6:17 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The good news, or so it seems, is that Naftali Bennett has been persuaded by Netanyahu to bank the fires of his ambition and accept for the time being the less than distinguished position of Minister of Education instead of Security(Defense) or Foreign Affairs.

Bennett’s time will come to lead this country. He’s young and can wait, and the better part of patriotism at this point is letting Bibi build his coalition by keeping Bogie and Lieberman in their present posts.

It’s good news because the sooner the obnoxious process of coalition building that hardly benefits the country as a whole comes to an end, the better…

Memorial Day
     April 21, 2015 - 7:08 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The Two-State Solution is a fantasy with no leasehold in the reality of the Middle East. The peace process has been a sham from day one in 1993. It sold the world the fantasy that Arafat and Abbas and friends had come around to recognizing the right of the Jews to live free in their own ancient country.

Nonsense. More than nonsense. A complete fabrication of reality. There was not one sliver of evidence in 1993 that the Arabs had come around to accepting the rightness of the Jews to their own state. There had not been one opinion in any Arab newspaper saying that it was time for Araby to stop its war against the Zionist entity.

There had not been one public affairs program on any Arab TV station in which recognition of Israel was discussed and supported by important people.

Oslo was believing, on the part of Beilin, Peres and the Israeli left, that Arafat and Abbas were genuinely committed to peace with Israel. That is, Oslo was rooted in the belief that these mass murdering antisemites were not above lying; that they were sincere; that although they had been terrorist murderers for decades, they finally had done tshuva, repented and seen the error of their ways and now could be trusted in their professions of peaceable intent.

Oslo was evidence of the Jews as the Chosen People, a special people, for Oslo was a special kind of stupidity about people, even a supernatural stupidity only a special chosen people is capable of…

Identifying with the Enemy
     April 19, 2015 - 6:31 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…But I part company from the across-the-board anger in Israel at the EU; for I think the real culprit is ourselves. There is something logical and understandable in the EU antipathy to Israel, for Israel has never denied that this territory really is Balestinian territory. After all, this was on display in 2009 at Bar-Ilan by the prime minister when he, so to speak, went to the baptismal font in the Church of the Enlightened and confessed his belief that, yes, the Balestinians deserve and have a right to a state in Judea and Samaria. All that needs to be worked out are the details. And thus Israel is complicit in the European view of things. Israel in 1993 did this on the White House lawn. Bibi did it again 16 years later. Israel accepts that Judea and Samaria rightfully belongs to the Ancient Ones. And for that it has been tongue-lashed in the West ever since.

The proper response to the demand for a Palestinian state has always been the same. From the get-go, Israel had to back up and support what Golda Meir, of blessed memory, said: There never was such a people, and I would add, Judea and Samaria is rightfully the property of the State of Israel, in perpetuity. The correct answer to the demand for a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria is “There are no Palestinians and they have no right to what is rightfully our land; rightfully according to the League of Nations Mandate which was incorporated into the United Nations; a right embedded in the United Nations Charter that Israel is the rightful owner of Judea and Samaria…

Holocaust Remembrance Day
     April 16, 2015 - 6:57 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The prime minister’s words were unnerving for their honesty. Because his delivery is so low key and measured, I fear few will heed him.

His focus of course for the occasion was the recent P5 +1 capitulation to the Iran, a country the prime minister last evening at Yad Vashem likened to Nazi Germany. He took note of the now reflexive, politically correct expression on such days as “Never Again” spoken by Western world leaders when formally honoring the Holocaust, but then lust for deals with Iran and the selling out of the six million Jews in Israel, overcomes them.

He described Iran’s aggression in the region, it’s shameless, public expressions of destroying the State of Israel, G-d forbid, and took note of the deal making with Iran by the West as if its intentions were not known.

He quoted the Prophet Yeshayahu, in English Isaiah, who spoke of “darkness, deep darkness covering the earth as he referenced the blindness of those in Lausanne to what their eyes tell them of this country of Iran. He made the chilling point that the lesson of the Holocaust has not been learned, though as usual, he did not explicitly name and describe this lesson. Israelis like Bibi have a hard time with that…

A Zero-sum War
     April 14, 2015 - 6:18 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And now we hear Putin has decided to sell Iran, after five-year delay, Russia’s S-300 air defense system which is far superior to its current equipment. The sale will enable Iran to defend its nuclear works better if Israel tries to destroy them, make it harder to do that.

If I were prime minister, though, I would not order such an attack. I think it is irrational. All agree that a successful strike would only mean delaying the program a few years. Obama’s plan he himself admits is also only a delaying tactic.

No, I think such an attack would be pointless. And in any case, in this age of foolishness, stupidity and decadence, people seem to have forgotten that the enemy is not equipment. Centrifuges are not the enemy. The enemy is no machine but the leaders of that country.

Israelis also seem to think that if Israel attacks just the nuclear works, then that would be okay and the Iranians would respond proportionately.

No. One must see that an attack on Iran’s nuclear installations is an attack on Iran as a whole. It is an act of war, and in war one wants to defeat utterly the enemy.

What I would order up is no strike on the nuclear installations. I would not go near them. They are well defended.

Instead, I would wait for the government and parliament to convene, and when they all are their on the most important day in their calendar, and strike there. Bomb the parliament in an effort to decapitate the government of Iran, kill all their leaders, which would also open the door to anti-Islamist Iranians to take power and free the country from the grip of these maniacal Muslim priests…

Obama Must Be Removed
     April 12, 2015 - 6:33 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…What Iran says happened in Lausanne is not what Obama said, not by a country mile. Two different versions of reality.

I am afraid, ladies and gentlemen, we are witness to another instance of the mind of Barack Hussein Obama who told us the Ft. Hood massacre had nothing to do with Islam and “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” And to yours truly, not only do I find his behavior virtually clinical, I despair of a Congress impotent before the truth that this man must be removed from office as expeditiously as possible.

This smells like another Benghazi when unhappy with an outcome, Obama and Hillary Clinton concocted that ridiculous and dishonest story of a video in California. There is also a video of Hillary solemnly telling the relatives of the four dead American security men that she was going to get that guy who made that offensive video.

In other words, Obama is at it again: telling stories that are not true…

The Immoral Futility of Negotiations
     April 7, 2015 - 6:52 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And then there is LTF, Little Tommy Friedman, who on Sunday wrote up his interview in the White House with His Majesty Sultan Barack the First which lasted 46 minutes. LTF published long sections of the transcript, though in all honesty I neither watched the interview — it’s available on line, of course — nor did I read his hard copy column because I am past the point with both LTF and Barack Hussein of thinking I will see something new in either of these anti-Jews.

I did not watch and did not read because I am frankly, first, a bit dumbfounded by this weird behavior on the part LTF who decided to interview him at all. I mean, after six years in office, Barack Obama has often enough been exposed – exposed himself, really – as a chronic liar.

What is the point of interviewing him when he is a known distorter of truth? What does it matter what he said in Sunday’s interview because he is a chronic, habitual liar about healthcare, about Benghazi, about IRS corruption. In the first speech of his that I ever saw, I felt this was a man who did not believe a word he was saying. His whole effort was presenting himself as an impressive orator with his fine baritone and the rhythm of his speech…
