The Bane of Israel Advocacy

 

We have all heard that the European Union has caved to the pressures of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) lobbying groups who were originated by the Fatah Party which is the same as saying the PA (Palestinian Authority). They introduced the idea that Israel was an Apartheid nation because the Arabs under the semi-autonomous rule of the Palestinian Authority run by Mahmoud Abbas who has not run for election since assuming the top spot when Yasser Arafat died in 2004. Abbas did not run in the 2005 elections and cancelled the scheduled 2009 election claiming an emergency which would not permit elections and then claimed Israel had not allowed the Arabs under the Palestinian Authority to vote because they were Arabs. What was not reported is that they are ruled by Abbas and he has refused to hold elections because he knows he would be defeated. Israel has no control over Arab elections, or no elections, under Palestinian rule which apparently has become a dictatorship as Abbas has assumed the position of President for Life which he has convinced the world that Israel has caused by not holding elections that he had cancelled. Why did the world media and so many pick up on this story and run with it when they also knew the truth was Abbas refused to hold elections and every Arab citizen of Israel has voted in Israeli elections if they choose to vote just like every other Israeli citizen. If an Israeli citizen does not vote, it is entirely their decision and not the fault of anyone other than themselves. So, as we asked a second ago, what is the problem with the media reporting an entirely false accusation against Israel when they are completely aware that the reason these Arabs under the authority which is led by Mahmoud Abbas as there have been no elections because Abbas cancelled them and will likely cancel the next election as he desires absolute power and refuses to take any chance he might not win but he blamed Israel and that is what the media reports, but why?

 

The answer is simple, in order to be permitted to have access to the Arab areas under Mahmoud Abbas and remain completely healthy when doing so one must report what they are told and never ever cross that line and report the truth or your access will be cancelled and you will be glad your life was not cancelled, not exactly an occurrence which has no precedence. What happens when you lie about Israel such as blaming Israel for Abbas refusing to hold elections? Nothing, absolutely nothing because Israel is an open and free society while the Arab Palestinian semi-autonomous territories is a closed and dictatorial police state with a highly armed enforcement police who are ready to execute anybody at a moment’s notice for being an Israeli agent. That had many examples which the media refuses to report for the same reason as above. So the media will report the Arab Palestinian line and not even check if there is an ounce of reality and truth as they already know that almost everything they claim of blame Israel over are lies or at best exaggerations, but it is news that feeds a popular line, it’s all the Jews fault, or in the modern line, the Jewish State’s fault. There is more to this situation with many in Europe amongst the intelligentsia setting the understood line of thought that Israel is the new Jewish Problem which must be dealt with just as the Jewish Problem of World War II was handled and the only difference is this time the Arab States are the tool replacing the Nazis, only even generally more rabid in their hatred and fury with the Jews and their state of Israel.

There are a majority of nations which are completely comfortable with annulling the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 which is viewed as the establishment of Israel. This majority is a combination of the Arab States, some Muslim non-Arab states, the NAM states (non-aligned nations mostly developing nations) and a good if not majority of the European nations and with President Obama the United States could become doubtful for supporting Israel. Fortunately it is doubtful a move to eradicate Israel by United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven enforceable decree would pass without at least one of the five permanent nations; the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain, and France; using their veto to kill such a motion as it would require the use of force if Israel refused to agree to be dissolved, a likely scenario should such ever come to pass. Unfortunately, such a scenario just might be coming within the next year should Israel be challenged by Iran and allied forces currently in Syria such as Hezballah and additionally Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacked Israel using Iranian provided missiles and warheads and this is proven sufficiently that Israel decided to impart some small retribution launching from one of their submarines a cement tipped warhead on a cruise missile striking the Supreme Leader’s offices in the middle of the night thus causing minimal loss of life but departing a definite and unmistakable message. Imagine how such a scenario would be covered in the media. The Iranians would be calling an emergency meeting of every agency in the world and demanding Israeli leaders and all of Israel be erased over this unprovoked aggression by the Jewish State. There would finally be a Friday Afternoon where the masses would be yelling “Down with Israel” without the usual accompanying “Down with the United States” as Israel would have finally become the Great and Little Satan all over an attack which at most killed two people, one of which was sleeping outside the building struck. And just imagine the headlines and coverage such would get by the New York Times, the BBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, AFP, Reuters, FOX, France 2, France 24 and especially Haaretz as we would not want to leave out what President Rivlin recently declared that, “In times of Right-wing coalitions, and in times of Left-wing coalitions, Haaretz always remained in opposition, and criticized both sides when necessary. Being in the opposition is not an easy job. Most of my youth, I belonged to the opposition – to the ‘wrong’ side. Knowing that the public has chosen a different way, the opposition must work hard to convince them it has better solutions. It must reconnect with the public and still keep to its own truth. Without this effort, without a live-and-kicking opposition, our democracy is worth little. I am here today because I believe that the free market of ideas is a sacred principle.” There are many who hold doubts that Haaretz has maintained such an oppositional level with equal ardor favoring neither Right nor Left-wing governments as their very evident slant to the Port if we put it in naval terms.

 

The reality which has caused a bit of an identity crisis is that this new form of anti-Semitism is not the compliment of the older anti-Semitism which was relegated to a Right-wing; the neo-anti-Semitism is a purely Left-wing phenomenon and has a virulence which almost defies comparison. There are many of the neo-anti-Semites who claim that Hamas is correct in their actions as Israel refuses to end their occupation despite Israel removing every vestige of their existence in August of 2005 leaving only the multi-million-dollar advanced greenhouses which would have provided an entire industry up and running only to have them torn apart in order to turn the piping and other framework and provisions into rockets and explosives out of the fertilizer and launched these rockets into Israel. They ignore that Israel had no embargo blockade when they initially turned the Gaza Strip over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinian Authority. It was after Hamas took control in a coup that Israel found it necessary to prevent them from importing heavy weapons and other more destructive systems with which to bombard Israeli civilians in neighboring communities which were initially in jeopardy. With assistance from Iran and European monies Hamas has slowly developed the capacity to produce rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel placing Jerusalem and Haifa within striking distance of their latest rockets and who knows what will be available in the next round with Hamas. The other item ignored is the charters of both the Arab Palestinian Authority and especially those of Islamic Jihad and Hamas which both quote passages from the Quran usually utilized to express the unbridled hatred of the Jews and insists in their eradication to the last single Jew. But is this a worrisome concern of these neo-anti-Semites? No, never even a concern is placed in such knowledge as it makes little difference; all is permissible in the crusade to purge the world of the Jew in the form of the Jewish State, of Israel.

 

That is the drive behind the BDS program but that is just one piece of the tip of the spear. The rest of the spear, the mass of the spearhead behind the sharp knives which are stabbing Jews in Israel every day and have been doing so for months and apparently has become the new normal along with ramming groups of people with the car and lately evolved to include firearms as drive by shootings have joined the assaults on Jews which are not being reported in the liberal media, too Jewish to report. The story line from Gaza is even more controlled and enforced line of the story is always the same, the Jews are forcing the violence and rockets fired onto their cities. Hamas would stop firing the rockets if the Jews would just go back to where they came or just disappeared all-together. The Europeans think the Jews should leave while they can and go to Israel and the Arabs want the Jews to all go to Europe or America or Alaska, anywhere but in lands where there are Arabs. If the Arabs got the upper-hand in the Arab-Israeli conflict and made the world an offer of accepting the Jews and Christians and any other than Muslim Israelis instead of allowing Hamas to liquidate them all, does anybody honestly believe their nations would take as many Israelis as they have Syrians? Syrians are victims of a horrific war but the Jews simply lost and have to face the result of that loss, they do not rate high enough on the world’s sympathy meter to honestly give it a moment’s thought. Let Hamas and the others do as they choose, what problem is it of the world. This is understood though never spoken of in polite company as such things are too horrible to believe of our fellow mankind. Such truths must be ignored even if we in our hearts fear the truth of such as we remember the trip, the lonely and desperate trip of the St Louis and the fate which awaited her passengers because nobody, nor Cuba who had extended their open arms only to close them slamming the door of hope in the passengers of the St Louis’s faces and not the United States, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, nor any other possible nation in the entire world extended a helping hand to the passengers of the St Louis as they slowly made their way back to Nazi Germany and the Concentration Camps. Would today be any different if instead of a ship on the high seas instead it was the Ship of State of Israel which was stricken and needed a nation to which her people might embark on creating new lives or face certain death should the world turn a cold hearted refusal as they had the St Louis.

Would there be any difference in the liberal halls of Europe who already fund a multitude of NGOs whose goal is the death of the Jewish State, and whose European Union has taken its first step towards placing an embargo on all Israeli goods and services, except any great innovation which might serve them or their peoples interests such as instant messaging, most software protection systems and other innovations. The European nations which abstain rather than vote their hearts in the United Nations allowing every sort and form of denunciation to go unopposed by Europe who calm their conscience with an abstention telling themselves that was close enough as they could have supported and thus was a tacit approval and not outright. There is no difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism or anti-Israelism as holding Israel to its own unique set of perfection which no other nation is held or even expected of itself on its best day, but Israel must hold to perfection and any mar or mere scratch of the polishing wax that could easily be rubbed from existence is instead used to martyr Israel, used to spear her and roast her slowly over hot embers enjoying every drip of sweat and the sizzle of the fat as that is the sentence for imperfection if you are Israel, if you are the Jewish State.

 

That is the judgement of the media, especially the left leaning media but across the boards it often seems similar. So why does not Israel have its defenders? Certainly not President Francois Hollande who after the carnage in Paris, refused to include Jerusalem in the list of cities hit by terrorists making what can only be classified as one deliberate anti-Semitic choice. Well, she does have some spokespeople but they do not dictate to the media and only control the one station in most regions which is largely seen only by those who agree. Such a station is the CBN network which often defends Israel and that is applauded by many Evangelicals but they are but one group. Even the Jews are not as solidly supportive of Israel with many feeling embarrassed when the discussion comes to Israel because they know what should be expected of them but they know they will fall short as their standing in the leftist community is more important, inclusion and acceptance is more important because they will never live in Israel, maybe a couple of weeks every few years just for the sake of proving they are not anti-Semitic Jews, but never permanently as the United States is so much better. They might be surprised that for a Jew they are incorrect but to each their own. And there is another big problem, for if Jews refuse to support Israel, then who can one demand support from. This adds to the reasoning that Israel is indefensible as even her own people are against her. And that takes care of much of the media as the leftist Jews in the media bash Israel and the conservatives have such a small contribution and are not given space often enough in the major newspapers as might be hoped. There are claims the Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author supports Israel; with such support may we have less support and settle for honest criticism. Then there is the lost generation, the Jews who received just enough Jewish education that they might remember how to read the very Hebrew they learned to be Bar or Bat Mitzvah and some Jewish bible history which might still resonate and they know Hanukah because it comes with Christmas and they remember the High Holidays but still go to work on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and do not fast for Yom Kippur. That is the average Jew in America but fortunately the average Jew in Israel is getting more and more religious in what is called the periphery which means outside Tel Aviv and some secular areas of Jerusalem. Is there hope for Israel’s future? Yes, and it is assured with every little miracle we witness almost every day.

 

There are the little miracles which only those present or related to a person who was present know about. There are miracles such as the birth of a healthy child or any child as all life is precious and has its own reason and future to map out and their contribution for which Hashem placed them here as there are no wasted souls, just some who have gone astray and will require some therapy to come around, and that is provided in the least expected of ways. Then there are the mysterious miracles which make no sense or reason other than Hashem willed it and it came to be. As the Hamas officer of a rocket company was called on the carpet for not striking Tel Aviv, he was demanded to explain how he could miss such a large target and he replied that even when their rocket flew true towards central Tel Aviv their G0d moved it aside. I doubt his commander accepted that story, well, until he read about it in the news as it made news across Israel and was celebrated as proof of Hashem protecting Israel and we all prayed a little louder that week. You can read about it in our article Why Palestinian Israeli Conflict Appears Open-Ended as we definitely mentioned it. The wind mentioned as redirecting the rocket out to sea would need to be more than a strong gust or even strong directed winds as rockets are designed to fly straight with only minimal effect from side winds, especially with seconds before they strike. Any wind capable to such redirection would have caused more damage and deaths than the rocket striking. The wind was as to give naysayers their logical explanation. The Hamas officer in that reported story nailed it, Hashem moved the rockets to strike harmlessly and as most of these rockets striking empty fields and vacant lots could be claimed to be just luck so it was necessary to make one spectacular redirect on at least one rocket so all would know that these rockets missing was more than just luck, they each were potentially a miracle, every-one a potential miracle.

President Rivlin, the Post Zionist

 

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has had a very interesting and denigrating visit in the United States which began with a meeting with United States President Barack Obama as we covered in our article Once Again the Discussion is How to Satiate Mahmoud Abbas where the two Presidents discussed their mutual concern of the consequences should Mahmoud Abbas and the governing Palestinian Authority (PA) fail due to one of any number of reasons, many of which were caused by Abbas and his supporting band of kleptocrats. The President of the United States was sounding out on his guest what very well will soon be an enacted plan which will more likely blame Israel generally and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu for not salvaging any remnant of hope for continuing the ill-fated peace process. The aim and results of the secretive meeting between the Presidents, one, the Israeli, in a nonpolitical role and the other, the American, all too political very likely misled and made indications which though meaningless and no promise of Israeli intents or actions will still be utilized to attempt to bulldoze concessions from the Israeli government in order to reconstitute the PA and restore faith and trust in the idea that Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat and the rest of the officers in the PA are agents seeking peace. This has been the misconception which had been the basis of the United States policies and decisions as well as the underpinning of the European Union and its individual governments such that their condemnation of Israel can be made with righteous indignation only exceeded by their hypocrisy and that by their resurgent anti-Semitism whose historic malfeasance is epic and writ throughout European history. We cannot say for certain that President Reuven Rivlin promised that the Israelis were willing to give away the store in order to have peace and were willing to accept almost any demand in order to satisfy Abbas and make a final peace. The problem there is for Abbas to accept a peace it would require the end of Israel as we know it. The question is whether President Rivlin knows such or is he the new Simon Peres, his predecessor as President and possibly the most damaging person to ever hold the office.

 

But Israeli President Reuven Rivlin’s fateful week was far from over and would hit two distinct peaks, or should we say sink to two troughs, one at the White House Hanukkah Party and the other at a very unusually decorated Haaretz Party with some questionable guests and main speaker in New York. First the White House Hanukkah Party where at least President Rivlin was not the main problem, his not making some protest, a mild and polite rebuke would have sufficed, but to pretend nothing untoward had occurred was a bit disappointing. Of what should President Rivlin made a critical comment? The Rabbi must have been carefully vetted by the White House to find the least Jewish most ardent leftist which called herself a Rabbi. What she was was a walking, talking advertisement for why Reform and Reconstructionist Rabbis and their congregations may not actually be all that Jewish and a reason for orthodoxy. The hand-picked Rabbi’s name was Susan Talve and I plan to take great care to keep the title of Rabbi separated from her name out of respect for the title of Rabbi. Susan Talve touched every liberal cause, or should we say extreme leftist as we feel that even some of the most liberal American Jews would have still felt uncomfortable with Susan Talve and even more so were she named their congregation’s Rabbi and they heard her presentation at the White House. With her opportunity to light the Hanukkah candles one would have expected at least one comment about Israel, the Maccabees, the little vial of oil burning for eight days or something related to Hanukkah, Israel or Judaism, which she did not unless leftist Democrat talking points is now considered Judaism which would be a sad commentary on American Jewish community, but we refuse to believe that the entirety of Judaism in the United States are this lost from their roots.

 

So, what was it that Susan Talve, the White House selected Rabbi, said which was offensive? Well, it is a multiple choice test as she made a number of questionable statements with some sufficient on their own for rebuke and the others simply further supportive evidence. For a soft preparatory introduction we will tell that she wanted her fellow Jews or Americans, she did not specify, to “clean up the fires of toxic nuclear waste.” We never realized that nuclear waste, even toxic nuclear waste, actually qualified as something on fire or even that such gave off flames of any kind by the regular definition of flames or any kind of fire, and I was a trained crash and rescue air field military firefighter; so I know a little about what constitutes a fire. Then there was another of the milder comments when Susan Talve pleaded for getting the “guns off our streets.” As the old Ronco ads said, but wait, there’s more. She has been described as screeching though I prefer to be kinder and refer to it as a high pitched emphasized with ample volume firmly warbling, “I stand here with my fierce family of clergy and Black Lives Matter activists who took to the streets of Ferguson.” Well now, guess we are starting to go off the rails finally. While rambling on about anything but the reasons and events celebrated in Hanukkah where one of the Priestly class was forced to make an apparent choice between making a sacrifice to a Syrian-Greek idol or be murdered along with the entire town he served decided to refuse the two choices and take matters into his own hands. Grabbing the Syrian-Greek unit commander’s sword the lead priest and head of the Maccabee family, Mattathias the Hasmonean, first killed the individual who stepped forward offering to make the sacrifice for Mattathias and then killed the Temple Priest who accompanied the Syrian-Greeks as they were an anathema to the Jewish religion and with the assistance of his family, Judas Maccabee and his four brothers, Eleazar, Simon, John, and Jonathan; Mattathias started the revolution with the words as he prepared to head into the Judean hills from where they fought a guerilla war eventually causing the Syrian-Greeks to depart with the words, “Those who are with Hashem come with me.”

 

The epitome of the offensive and anti-Rabbi whose name must not touch the title she claimed and the White House chosen Rabbi when lighting the Hanukkah Candles, Susan Talve made her dedication, probably instead of the actual blessings, “I stand here to light these lights to say no the darkness of Islamophobia and Homophobia and Transphobia.” And in her continued running at the mouth before she mercifully was seated included here represented in bits and pieces she called for, “Justice for Palestinians” and closed with the coup de gras, “InshAllah, InshAllah.”

Then there was the Haaretz Party in New York, New York. As with any party this had its share of luminaries. What it did not have are supporters of Israel. This was a very exclusive event with Roger Waters of Pink Floyd and BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) supporter who has actively advised other performers against playing or performing in Israel. This is forgivable. Coming to an event where Avner Gevaryahu, representing Breaking the Silence was the featured speaker is highly questionable as long as your time at the microphone defends the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and makes known your discomfort with the invitation of such a hater of the IDF might be in order. Remaining at an event being given by what we are to assume is an Israeli news source which has removed and refused to display the Israeli flag is an insult to every caring and patriotic Israeli. One does not need be a Zionist to expect Haaretz to display the flag of Israel, particularly when inviting the President of Israel to attend and making the comfort of the Israeli President and the Israeli People he represents over an anti-Israeli representing a group which is reprehensibly defaming the IDF, is unacceptable. No foreign nation would invite the President of Israel, or any other nations’ President, and not fly the Israeli flag in honor of his presence. To not permit the flag of Israel is firstly an offense committed by Haaretz as one of Israel’s presumably premiere news sources even worse than having Avner Gevaryahu, representing Breaking the Silence, as your featured speaker and placing his speaking as featured over President Rivlin are first and foremost an insult by Haaretz against the Israeli people, the Israeli Defense Forces, and the nation of Israel.

 

It is solely because this event was an anathema to any respectable and patriotic Israeli and triple that to any Zionist Israeli and should have been sufficient warnings that this was not a venue suitable for the President of Israel who is presumably the representative of all Israelis and by attending and apparently having no difficulty with the insult to the nation of Israel and her people by refusing to fly our flag is where President Rivlin showed poor judgement and to put the bow on top, he gave a warm and welcoming speech expressing his pleasure and privilege for attending an event that so insulted the nation and its peoples. President Rivlin, it is your poor judgement in representing most Israelis we know, potentially every Israeli we know, that have us questioning your sensitivity to our expectations and something we would sincerely request you either become more sensitive to our feelings and sensitivities or hire a person who could assist you in sensing when Israelis like those we represent and other friends of Israel we represent from our readership that we show our concerns and hope your staff will find somebody from amongst them or from outside to alert you to such potential signs which might arouse our concerns in the future. Until such wisdom and discernment is shown by preferably yourself, or at least one in your staff, we will remain fearful that we once again have a President from whom we can again expect insult after insult to our feelings and once more we are left unrepresented in the office which is presumably tasked with representing Israel spiritually and emotionally and to show respect for our nation and its valued trappings such as the flag and the IDF. We hope that is not too much to ask of our President but thus far we are unsure such a level of dignity will be forthcoming. We have a friend who expressed suspicions that the Presidential Office or potentially the Residence itself has a particularly virulent virus which will infect every Israeli President going forward called Peresitis. We hope that you can be cured of Peresitis and have the entire trappings of the Presidency cleansed of this virulent endemic of Peresitis as soon as an antidote or other method of destroying this pathogen can be found. Until then we can only hope your case of Peresitis passes soon from your system and your developed immunity can also cure the rest of the trappings of your office from Peresitis.

Israel’s Dilemma Whether or Not to Protest President Obama

For reasons which are not necessarily obvious to all the political persuasions, there are those in Israel who are less enamored with United States President Obama than are others. This has caused for calls to protest the President. The question has been exactly how to protest President Obama when access to him will be under tight security and thus very limited. Obviously such security would shield the President from coming in contact with any demonstrations and their only effect would be whatever coverage they received in the World media, particularly the American media. This also would allow the media to interpret in what vein the protesters would be cast affecting how they would be perceived. The problem then is to find a manner of protest which would make the point that there are some difficulties and differences in opinions and aims between many Israelis and the President of the United States. The protest must also take into consideration that much of their effort will likely be blunted by the massive security which will isolate the President from such influences.

 

Perhaps the best of protests would be not to protest and instead simply refuse to attend any venue featuring President Obama. Should all of the reports of President Obama during his visit in Israel show minimal audiences and small if any crowds vying to view the American President, this would be the most impressive demonstration. Let’s face the truth; large demonstrations could be shot in one of two manners, either showing them as protests or hiding their true intent and representing them as supportive throngs. On the other hand, you cannot show empty streets as a supportive throng of people cheering the President as he passes from one event to the next. If Israelis simply went about their normal day-to-day business, with the necessary adjustments to accommodate road closures and other security necessities, and simply appeared not to have any reaction, pro or con, to President Obama’s visit, they would make the loudest of statements. The real problem in attempting to protest any visit by United States President Obama is that by doing so one leaves it to the media coverage to carry the message. Does anybody in even their wildest imagination believe that Haaretz, the BBC, AFP or the New York Times and their cohorts would ever report protest against President Obama in any positive light? They would do everything in their power to show the protesters as a disgruntled minority while showing the crowds of adoring fans as the norm and representative of the vast majority of Israelis. They would do this even if it required misrepresenting which pictures were of protesters and which were of supporters which from a distance would be differentiable. Relying on the truth from media has become a bit of a fools game in the new modern age of slanted journalism where opinions are conveyed as facts and facts are considered interpretable.

 

So, maybe the best path that Israelis wishing to impart a disapproving message to President Obama would do so best by simply doing nothing. Simply let the complete lack of any evidence of approvals or disapprovals make their statement rather than allow for interpretation by the international media. Nothing could make a louder statement to President Obama the man than to have only a paltry few show to cheer his presence as the admiring throngs are one of the benefits of the Presidency which he most treasures. Deny him admiring, cheering crowds and the silence will be the most devastating message that could be sent. Sometimes the best action is inaction.
