Israeli Election Coverage: Vote NU

The column below from Ynet News is a fantastic analysis of the upcoming Israeli elections, and why you should be supporting the National Union (Ichud Leumi).

Yoel Meltzer
Published: 01.28.09

Ynet News: Following the disengagement from Gaza in the summer of 2005 and the complete negligence on behalf of the government to properly handle the forced evacuees, the subsequent war in Lebanon one year later, the endless missiles fired upon the south and the recent war in Gaza, many good-minded Israelis are clearly against the establishment of a Palestinian state, in any shape or size, in Judea and Samaria.

The direct threat that such a state would impose against Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as these two large population centers become incredibly vulnerable to missile attacks, is quite obvious. In addition, in light of the disastrous handling of the disengagement refugees, it is inconceivable to think that Israel would succeed with the much larger Jewish population currently residing in Judea and Samaria.

However, despite the opposition of many Israelis to the “two-state solution,” it is quite clear and understandable that the United States has a different agenda. As a result of both an economy in disarray and widespread dissatisfaction with the continued participation of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, the new president will likely do his utmost to bring the American troops back home and “turn inward” in order to deal with the faltering economy.

It is also just as clear that Israel will likely be required, as usual, to “pay the price” for American appeasement with the various Arab and Muslim countries. Moreover, this is not something that theoretically might happen a few years down the road, but rather, something which will most likely happen within the coming year. Once again, from an American perspective this is quite clear and understandable, since America needs to do what it must do in order to preserve its teetering empire.

Just as clear, however, is the relentless and intense pressure that will be applied to Israel within the coming year in order to agree to the creation of a Palestinian state in either all or part of a Jewish-free (or somewhat Jewish-free) Judea and Samaria.

Don’t be fooled

Having said all this, and in light of the quickly approaching national elections, it is truly amazing to see that the confusion on the Right is once again rearing its all too familiar head. Although there are several political parties that define themselves as “national” or “right-wing” - Likud, Yisrael Beiteinu, The Jewish Home, The National Union – only one of these parties says, in clear and straightforward terms, that it is 100% opposed to the creation of a Palestinian state, in any shape or size, in any part of the Land of Israel.

This party, The National Union, speaks clearly and directly with a real Jewish soul without worrying about political correctness. Moreover, its message, which is correct from a security perspective, is correct from a Jewish perspective as well. On the other hand the Likud, including several of its key members who recently cried “we told you Gaza would turn into Hamastan”(while conveniently forgetting to mention that these same key members voted in favor of the disengagement!), speaks about a demilitarized Palestinian state with Israel controlling the border security.

Yisrael Beiteinu, although different than Likud, also supports a two-state solution and suggests the trading of large population blocs (for example, Umm Al-Fahm and the “triangle” would be transferred to the Palestinian Authority in return for Israel officially annexing some Jewish areas in Judea and Samaria.) Finally, there is The Jewish Home, which is basically a reincarnation of the increasingly parve and boring National Religious Party.

It should be obvious then that anyone who truly cares about the future of this country should be voting for The National Union on Election Day, since it is the only party that is 100% dedicated to trying to stop the madness here. For this reason I am alarmed to hear of many good intentioned right-wing voters who are ready to place their vote with either the Likud or Yisrael Beiteinu, either because they are unaware that both these parties support a two-state solution or because they think that strengthening these parties will somehow “provide the answer.” Please don't be fooled. The future of our country is at stake.

Wise words, indeed. To all my Israeli readers, I implore you: Vote NU on February 10th. The National Union is the only party that serves the interests of all Jewish nationals, be they religious or secular, and offers the only platform that guarantees Jewish sovereignty, safety and security in Eretz Yisroel.

Here's the official website of the NU.

Hillary 100% supports Israeli use of force

I actually think I'm starting to (gasp) like Hillary. No moral equivalence, just pure support for Israel's use of force against the arabs, and 100% condemnation of Hamas. Condi never spoke this wholly positive towards Israel, always couching US support with pro-Palestinian qualifiers.

Ynet News: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that Israel had a right to defend itself and that Palestinian rocket attacks on the Jewish territory could not go unanswered.

"We support Israel's right to self-defense. The (Palestinian) rocket barrages which are getting closer and closer to populated areas (in Israel) cannot go unanswered," Clinton said in her first news conference at the State Department.

"It is regrettable that the Hamas leadership apparently believes that it is in their interest to provoke the right of self-defense instead of building a better future for the people of Gaza," she added.

Give 'em hell, Hillary. I know you'll still piss me off at some point with support for a two-state solution and the freezing of settlement activity, but on this day you deserved some props.

Palestinian Arabs Revealed

This video is a fantastic summary of how Palestinian nationalism, Islamism, Nazism, and anti-Zionism are all united as a single ideology seeking the extermination of the Jewish religion, nation and people. No concessions will ever satisfy them, save the ones that allow for us to meet the Final Solution.

One cannot say it firmly enough: We must fight our enemies tirelessly, relentlessly, and without compromise. There can be no negotiation when it comes to the survival of the Jews as a people, a religion, and a nation. Kahane Tzadak!

Hate message from a self-loathing Jew

Here's a lovely message that I received today from a leftwing, Palesitinan activist who apparently really loves Jews...

You're a fucking disgrace MZ, you're a bigoted, myopic, prejudice ridden fucking cunt that calls people Adolf and loves to tag anyone that begs to differ as an anti-semite.

You're the weakest kind of bottom feeding fuck, idea-less, anger ridden and futile in your pissing in the wind.

As for ritual slaughter, you fuck, you forget to mention that most civilised people have a problem with both halal and kosher killing methods and legislation against these methods does not stem from anti-Jew or anti-Muslim feeling but from animal rights that ignore daft rules about how animals should be killed and what should be eaten (like god has the time to worry about that shit).

For the record twat face:

Denmark and Finland demand the animal is stunned right after the cut.

Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Sweden demand the animal is stunned beforehand so it can't be kosher or halal.

Holland demands pre cut stunning for Halal but has legislation protecting shehitah.

Spain only allows ritual slaughter for sheep and goats.


And don't even start me on circumcision, genital mutilation of any form is so anti-human it stuns me that we allow the practice anymore.

Just as the Christians and Jews looked on as the Pagan Romans made sacrifices to their gods, both animal and human and shuddered, so do non-believers and humanists look at the eating habits and genital malpractice of the religious.

You need people to hate the Jews and you do your best to enable it, because if they didn't you'd have nothing to do with your backs to the wall style of debating and polital mindset. Your lack of ideas and your neck deep prejudice would be clear for all to see.

I can assure you that every shitty little untruth and empty oratry you throw down here I'll smash to tiny bits.

-Daniel Hoffmann-Gill

This "peace activist" just wants more tolerance and love, of course. If he needs to exterminate Judaism and Israel in the process, why quibble? Naturally, he is a deeply self-loathing Jew; they seem to make the finest anti-Semites.

Letter to the World

Rabbi Meir Kahane was certainly a prophetic man to say the least. I've shown this timeless video before, but it deserves to be seen again in the aftermath of the Gaza War.

Kahane was right.

MLK: "Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism"

On Martin Luther King Jr. day, allow me to pay a special tribute to the man who was a true Zionist, a great friend of the Jewish people, a righteous gentile, and whose famous words in support of Israel and Zionism remain as prescient today as they were when he first spoke them 40 years ago.

During an appearance at Harvard University shortly before his death: "A student stood up and asked King to address himself to the issue of Zionism. The question was clearly hostile. King responded, “When people criticize Zionists they mean Jews, you are talking anti-Semitism.”
And this: During his lifetime King witnessed the birth of Israel and the continuing struggle to build a nation. He consistently reiterated his stand on the Israeli-Arab conflict, stating "Israel's right to exist as a state in security is incontestable." It was no accident that King emphasized "security" in his statements on the Middle East.

On March 25, 1968, less than two weeks before his tragic death, he spoke out with clarity and directness stating, "peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security and that security must be a reality."

Nicely done, Dr. King.

Israel declares unilateral ceasefire


Typical, typical, typical. Israel launches a military mission of no objective, accomplishes nothing, and then ends the campaign claiming to have achieved their objective. With the sham of operation "War for Votes" over, now Kadima and Labor leaders can sit back and hope their mild boost in the polls will be good enough to retain their coalition government.

Meanwhile, in response, Hamas declares they will only increase their attacks and fires rockets into Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beer Sheva while Olmert poses for his "victory" media photos.

Until MZ's "Annex and Expel" plan is implemented there will be no peace in the Holy Land.

"Palestinians" Enact Sharia Law, Crucifixion

What do you expect from the vermin? As the world whines about Israel pounding away at Judenrein Gazan, we learn that, as a special Chanukka & Christmas present to the world, the wretched moslem stink enacted special legislation imposing Sharia Law and the practice of Crucifixion in the territories of Israel.

Jewish Leadership Blog (by Mark Steyn): So how was your holiday season? Over in Gaza, whether or not they're putting the Christ back in Christmas, they're certainly putting the crucifixion back in Easter. According to the London-based Arabic newspaper al Hayat, on Dec. 23 Hamas legislators voted to introduce Sharia – Islamic law – to the Palestinian territories, including crucifixion. So next time you're visiting what my childhood books still quaintly called "the Holy Land" the re-enactments might be especially lifelike.

The following day, Christmas Eve, Samuel Huntington died at his home at Martha's Vineyard. A decade and a half ago, in his most famous book "The Clash Of Civilizations," professor Huntington argued that Western elites' view of man as homo economicuswas reductive and misleading – that cultural identity is a more profound behavioral indicator than lazy assumptions about the universal appeal of Western-style economic liberty and the benefits it brings.

Very few of us want to believe this thesis.

"The great majority of Palestinian people," Condi Rice, the secretary of state, said to commentator Cal Thomas a couple of years back, "they just want a better life. This is an educated population. I mean, they have a kind of culture of education and a culture of civil society. I just don't believe mothers want their children to grow up to be suicide bombers. I think the mothers want their children to grow up to go to university. And if you can create the right conditions, that's what people are going to do."

Thomas asked a sharp follow-up: "Do you think this or do you know this?"

"Well, I think I know it," said Secretary Rice.

"You think you know it?"

"I think I know it."

I think she knows she doesn't know it. But in the modern world there is no diplomatic vocabulary for the kind of cultural fault line represented by the Israeli/Palestinian dispute, so even a smart thinker like Dr. Rice can only frame it as an issue of economic and educational opportunity. Of course, there are plenty of Palestinians like the ones the secretary of state described: You meet them living as doctors and lawyers in Los Angeles and Montreal and Geneva … but not, on the whole, in Gaza.

In Gaza, they don't vote for Hamas because they want access to university education. Or, if they do, it's to get Junior into the Saudi-funded, Hamas-run Islamic University of Gaza, where majoring in rocket science involves making one and firing it at the Zionist Entity. In 2007, as part of their attempt to recover Gaza from Hamas, Fatah seized 1,000 Qassam rockets at the university, as well as seven Iranian military trainers.

At a certain unspoken level, we understand that the Huntington thesis is right, and the Rice view is wishful thinking. After all, when French President Sarkozy and other European critics bemoan Israel's "disproportionate" response, what really are they saying? That they expect better from the despised Jews than from Hamas. That they regard Israel as a Western society bound by civilized norms, whereas any old barbarism issuing forth from Gaza is to be excused on grounds of "desperation."

Hence, this slightly surreal headline from The New York Times: "Israel Rejects Cease-Fire, But Offers Gaza Aid." For whatever that's worth. Wafa Samir Ibrahim al-Biss, a young Palestinian woman who received considerate and exemplary treatment at an Israeli hospital in Beersheba, returned to that same hospital packed with explosives in order to blow herself up and kill the doctors and nurses who restored her to health. Well, what do you expect? It's "desperation" born of "poverty" and "occupation."

If it was, it would be easy to fix. But what if it's not? What if it's about something more primal than land borders and economic aid?

A couple of days after Hamas voted to restore crucifixion to the Holy Land, their patron in Tehran (and their primary source of "aid") put in an appearance on British TV. As multicultural "balance" to Her Majesty The Queen's traditional Christmas message, the TV network Channel 4 invited President Ahmadinejad to give an alternative Yuletide address on the grounds that it was a valuable public service to let viewers hear him "speak for himself, which people in the West don't often get the chance to see."

In fact, as Caroline Glick pointed out in The Jerusalem Post, the great man "speaks for himself" all the time – when he's at the United Nations, calling on all countries to submit to Islam; when he's presiding over his international conference of Holocaust deniers; when he's calling for Israel to be "wiped off the map" – or (in his more "moderate" moments) relocated to a couple of provinces of Germany and Austria. Caroline Glick forbore to mention that, according to President Ahmadinejad's chief adviser, Hassan Abbassi, his geopolitical strategy is based on the premise that "Britain is the mother of all evils" – the evils being America, Australia, Israel, the Gulf states, Canada and New Zealand, all the malign progeny of the British Empire. "We have established a department that will take care of England," Mr. Abbassi said in 2005. "England's demise is on our agenda."

So when Britain's Channel 4 says that we don't get the chance to see these fellows speak for themselves, it would be more accurate to say that they speak for themselves incessantly but the louder they speak the more we put our hands over our ears and go "Nya nya, can't hear you." We do this in part because, if you're as invested as most Western elites are in the idea that all anyone wants is to go to university, get a steady job and settle down in a nice house in the suburbs, a statement such as "England's demise is on our agenda" becomes almost literally untranslatable. When President Ahmadinejad threatens to wipe Israel off the face of the map, we deplore him as a genocidal fantasist. But maybe he's a genocidal realist, and we're the fantasists.

The civilizational clashes of professor Huntington's book are not inevitable. Culture is not immutable. But changing culture is tough and thankless and something the West no longer has the stomach for. Unfortunately, the Saudis do, and so do the Iranians. And not just in Gaza but elsewhere the trend is away from "moderation" and toward something fiercer and ever more implacable.

To be fair to President Ahmadinejad's hosts at Channel 4, the "department that will take care of England" probably doesn't get the lion's share of the funding in Tehran. On the other hand, when Hashemi Rafsanjani describes the Zionist Entity as "the most hideous occurrence in history," which the Muslim world "will vomit out from its midst" with "a single atomic bomb," that sounds rather more specific, if not teetering alarmingly on the "disproportionate." Unlike its international critics in North America and Europe, Israel has no margin for error.

When will the ignoramuses realize that the only answer is the annexation of all the territories by Israel and the expulsion of the arabs from the Holy Land? Anything less would be uncivilized.

Still Fighting...

I am somewhat impressed that the concessionist liberal scum running this war are still pounding away at the vermin. Still, the fact remains that the mission is utterly pointless in the bigger picture so long as it doesn't involve retaking Gaza and annexing it as Israeli property.

NU Party leader Yaakov Katz saya it best:
( The National Union's leader, Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz, blasted Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni Saturday evening for her remarks in a Washington Post / Newsweek interview. Livni's commitment not to reconquer Gaza exudes weakness, he said. “The commitment emasculates the offensive spirit of the IDF operation and strengthens Hamas's morale,” he said.

“The idea is not to reoccupy the Gaza Strip,” Livni was quoted as saying in the interview. “When we left the Gaza Strip, Hamas used to write on billboards that terror won and Israel left Gaza because of terror. So today the message for the Palestinians is that we left the Gaza Strip in order to create hopes for peace. But now we are coming back because of terror.”

When asked if Israel was thinking about stopping the operation in Gaza, Livni answered: “On a daily basis. We are not looking to reoccupy the Gaza Strip. But we need to see that we achieved our goals.”

Want peace? Annex the territories and deport the arabs. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Israel to call a truce

Now, isn't that special.

Looks like the Pointless War in Gaza is coming to an end. With the lack of any discernable mission now accomplished, Kadima and Labor can officially declare imaginary victory and posture for votes in next month's elections.

( French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced Wednesday that Israel and Hamas have agreed to a cease fire. He said that leaders of both parties will travel to France for cease fire negotiations.

We will now return to our regularly scheduled programming of "Rockets From Gaza" and "Persecute the Settlers". Thank you for playing, and don't forget to pick up your commemorative "Olmert went to war and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" door prize on the way out.

Olmert: "Hamas rule over Gaza shall continue"

Gratifying to know that this "war" is without a true military objective - just literally blowing smoke and taking a body count with no concrete objective besides a transparent, political tactic to boost Kadima and Labor before the February elections.

Ynet News: Prime Minister Ehud Olmert stressed Monday that the objectives of Operation Cast Lead do not include toppling Hamas' regime in the Gaza Strip. Olmert, who met Monday evening with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, said that "(Israel) did not set out to eliminate Hamas' rule in Gaza, though we can do that too."

If Olmert and company would be going in on a mission to annex Gaza and deport the arabs, rather than posturing for the vote by blowing up some buildings and killing a few hundred moslems without any resolution to the larger conflict, Israel's surrounding communities and the repatriated arabs would all have peace.
