Mandelblit Demands to Decide Israeli Elections

 

Israeli Attorney General Mandelblit, with the cooperation and support from State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan, has entered into the elections, now that the lists have been submitted and formalized, and has insisted that he decide which candidates are permitted to be in the Knesset and who must be denied entry into that body. Should he get away with this breach of legal etiquette and have the Central Elections Committee simply rubber-stamp his pronouncements, Attorney General Mandelblit will become the Lord High Elector casting his pale shadow over every candidate list deciding who can stay and who must go before the people are permitted any say with their votes. In the past week, Mandelblit has announced that he opposes the disqualification of the Arab Lists of Balad, Hadash and Ta’al parties from running in the elections. On the other end of the political spectrum, the story is quite different, as Mandelblit has submitted a request to disqualify Otzma Yehudit candidates attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir does not present sufficient evidentiary basis that would allow it to be accepted. These are the two candidates Otzma Yehudit has on the list with Jewish Home and National Union Parties.

 

Mandelblit based his claims against the two Otzma Yehudit on the “grounds of incitement to racism.” This poses the question as to why Otzma Yehudit should be tagged as unacceptable as they call for annexation of Judea and Samaria and expediting the voluntary emigration of Arab Palestinians while the Arab Lists are not being racist when they back armed revolt against Israel and dispossessing the Jews and have given open support to terrorist groups which murder Israeli citizens. The answer is clearly obvious once one includes the abrupt bringing of charges against the sitting Prime Minister and leader of the Likud Party right before the elections such that he can keep pounding the charges against Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu right up to the election and potentially have him barred from running by the Supreme Court. This is a political coup by other means than a military take-over, a putsch by prosecution. Mandelblit has proven that he is not fit to be Attorney General of the State of Israel as he appears to be unable to put aside his politically rose-colored glasses which makes every conservative, nationalist, Zionist and religious Jew into an raging racist and the leftists, socialists, and Israel detractors who call for the end of the Jewish State as an oppressed minority towards whom all should genuflect.

 

Mandelblit claims that statements made by Ahmed Tibi, Ayman Odeh, and Balad members supporting the “resistance to the occupation,” according to which, causing harm to a soldier is not terrorism, that this does not provide the evidentiary basis for disqualifying the parties. The Otzma Yehudit Party criticized the Attorney General’s decision stating, “The time has come to change the equation and inform the supporters of terrorism that they are not wanted in the Israeli Knesset. Democracy must defend itself, and the free hand that the Attorney General gives to the Balad members, to Ahmed Tibi and to Ayman Odeh, causes there to be in the Knesset an evil axis that supports terror, incites against the state, and receives a salary at the expense of the Israeli taxpayer on top of it.” Meanwhile, the candidates from Otzma Yehudit must be disqualified as they belong to the party which was founded in the spirit of Zionism and the thoughts of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose Kach Party was disqualified for being too powerful and potentially might have placed Rabbi Kahane as Prime Minister, thus the Kach Party became racist and against the spirit of the State of Israel. But still the petition from the Reform Movement and Knesset members Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) and Stav Shafir (Labor) claiming racism against Ben-Ari and Ben-Gvir, the entirety of the Otzma Yehudit candidates on the list, for they incited against Arabs after terror attacks, used influence on the soccer fields to incite and more items which just cannot be made-up. Wait one second, there was one unforgivable sin committed by Otzma Yehudit Party and their candidates, they made repeated attempts to ‘revive’ the image and teachings of Rabbi Kahane. Well, there go my dreams of ever becoming Prime Minister as eventually they might dig deep enough to find out I was a supporter of the good Rabbi, may his memory be a blessing.

 

Apparently, the left just cannot let go of their hatred for the man who was proven to be correct about everything he predicted would be coming at Israel and today we are facing the exact existential threats which Rabbi Kahane wanted to prevent by cutting them off before they could grow to proportions beyond the ability for Israel to control. A solid argument can be made that had the PLO and Hamas been quashed instead of catered and treated like delicate flowers, not terrorists, then there probably would not be any Hezballah as that organization was not even an idea until after Yasser Arafat started a revolution to overthrow the Christian heritage and government in Lebanon. Furthermore, the left knows they will be unable to oust Prime Minister Netanyahu from being the person chosen to form a ruling coalition but they might be able to make his efforts fruitless or simply having to allow at least the more numerous leftist parties a seat at the table. If the left can petition the religious Zionist candidates from their respective tickets, this will cause many who would have supported the list they had joined to become disenfranchised and very possibly staying home and not voting. They are also going directly at the Prime Minister with charges which the rest of the world, including a number of Harvard and Yale lawyers, have found irresistibly hilarious. Mandelblit, those people laughing and claiming that no self-respecting prosecutor would ever take such charges to trial or even seek an indictment are not laughing because they believe you got Bibi in your crosshairs, they are laughing at you for thinking you have Bibi in your crosshairs. They are laughing because they cannot believe you are going to try and remove the Prime Minister over cigars and champagne, speaking with media owners seeking fairer coverage, refusing a bribe to press certain regulatory bills favoring one newspaper over another and being so bribed that Bibi voted against the measure, and these are your cases. These accusations are weaker and far less convincing than the threatened charges from the Attorney General’s office in the run-up to the last elections. We can only hazard a guess at what charges will be brought if Bibi should run once more, for example breaking fashion standards by wearing white shoes after November first or holding a formal dinner and serving tuna salad sandwiches with Kool-Aid, and just one flavor of Kool-Aid, grape. Things really are getting this ludicrous.

 

When it comes to anything right of center, even center as defined by the left, which places the actual center to the right or even the far or distant right, thus any truly conservative party is automatically the radical right, centrists who are neutral are relabeled as the right, and anyone with strong rightist views become an intolerable fascist beast who must be destroyed for the good of the cause and claimed to be done to save the nation. When the agreement was announced that Otzma Yehudit would gain two slots in the Jewish Home list of which only one has a great chance and the second a slight chance, quite slight, Y-net News reported, “A dynasty of racism and provocation is on its way to the Israeli parliament.” Another article, this time in Arutz Sheva stated, “Otzma Yehudit, led by former Kach movement activists Michael Ben-Ari, Baruch Marzel, and attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, has been linked with the ideology of Jewish Defense League founder and former Knesset Member Rabbi Meir Kahane. Rabbi Kahane advocated the expulsion of Arab residents of Israel, and was barred from the Knesset in 1988, after serving one term.” Rabbi Kahane favored encouraged emigration for the Arab population, a far cry from expulsion. Expulsion is what much of the Arab world across the Middle East and Northern Africa did to their Jewish citizens, and these Jews were long-standing citizens whose families had resided at their location for hundreds upon hundreds of years before being thrown from their homes and businesses being dispossessed of every ounce of wealth and sent packing often allowing merely one suitcase, if that, and even that was searched for anything of value on the way out. Israel absorbed and integrated into the society over eight-hundred-thousand of these Jews but the entire Arab world has been unable to integrate or absorb a single Arab who probably left their home obeying the orders from their own Mufti of Jerusalem. As Rabbi Kahane stated, Israel is for the Jews and Arabia should be for the Arabs. But Rabbi Kahane desired a peaceful and voluntary emigration and never claimed that an expulsion was required, that is pure leftist spin. Of course, listening to Mandelblit and many from the left and you would believe that Bibi Netanyahu has horns, which we made a picture to assist in seeing such and included it below. Needless to say, but Bibi supporters claim he is an angel and to assist in this there is a picture with this below. We have had many disagreements with Bibi politically where our complaint has been that he is too tentative and refuses to act decisively and pursue a finality, especially when it comes to Hamas and Gaza. We can only guess at what the majority of media might say to those attacking the Prime Minister from the right, and it would not likely be pretty.

 

Bibi Netanyahu, You Devil or You Angel, We Decide

Bibi Netanyahu, You Devil or You Angel, We Decide

 

The above will be decided by straightforward means the first two weeks of April as Israelis go to the polls and decide the face we will put forth to the world and what policies we will follow. Mandelblit will probably vote in opposition to Bibi and in opposition to all of Bibi’s announced intentions. We will also be voting against Bibi and for Bibi, but not exactly Bibi. Our hope is for a different right of center, religious, Zionist, most definitely Zionist person who knows both the biblical definition of our lands and the Mandate and international law defines as our lands. Should Iran make a move, Israel may very well decide that a natural border to the north is required and make the northern border match the biblical northern border, the Litani River. We could turn the rest of Lebanon into a Christian nation under Israeli protection for as long as it remains Christian. These coming Israeli elections are going to be vitally important as they will set the immediate future should the people actually turn out and vote. Israelis are looking at another situation sort of similar to the 1992 elections where the right wing was still stinging from a media firestorm and the right splintered which handed the left the government despite their taking well under half of the vote. The right is not as splintered, though it does have some outliers which could result in a fair amount of wasted votes. The left basically falls into three parties, the Blue-White Party of Gantz and Lapid, Labor which might still refer to itself as the Zionist Union and the Arab List which largely has people who represent the Palestinian Arabs more fiercely than they do Israeli Arabs. Israel is the only nation where people who desire tearing down the nation and placing under a tyrannical dictator who would murder half of the country’s population is actually represented in their national government.

 

In the case of Israel, both Attorney General Mandelblit and State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan support allowing those who would destroy the nation and probably murder most of the Jews, no matter their politics, taking power, transforming the nation from the Jewish homelands to the Jews final resting ground. Should the right require a reminder, it was the disintegration from the right wing which brought forward the Oslo Accords which were designed in secret by leftists who were not in power working with the Netherlands and United States State Department (State Department is all one need know to realize that freedom loving people will suffer from the results) without informing anybody in the government and telling their other partners that they can do this if only they could win an election. Since then, there has often been Democrat operatives working in Israel to support leftist parties despite such being against Israeli election rules, accepting assistance from outside the country. This time the right will once again be facing a unified left who has promised to find the way to provide a state for the Arab Palestinians, the same Arab Palestinians whose leadership claims that the only solution is the replacement of Israel with an Arab Islamic dictatorship completely free of any Jews. That is what they claim and state regularly and we have no reason not to believe what they say would indeed occur should they ever get half a chance of completing their nefarious plans. This Israeli election and every future Israeli election, the right will need to hold the line and not allow any further slippage leftward. Granted, Israel has made great strides despite its socialist beginnings. Israel now has slowly and inexorably been sliding leftward which can be seen by looking at the centrist parties such as the Blue-White Party which would attempt to establish an Arab state carved out of tiny little Israel as an attempt to satisfy the Arab thirst for Israel’s demise. That would simply be blood in the water and the sharks would gather seeking the bleeding source, and that source would be Israel. The left which argued for Oslo was in favor of Israel retaining three-quarters of the regions which had been liberated from Jordanian occupation, and now the centrists, not even the left but the center want to give away virtually all the lands which Jordan had illegally occupied. That is the evidence of a slippery slope which comes from making unilateral concessions at the insistence of the originator of this mess, the United States State Department. These are the functionaries who make many laws by referring to them as regulations and levy taxes calling them fees and can run or destroy the country. In the United States, it is called the “Deep State” and in Israel we can just call it a hive of leftists which we can only be neutralized by electing right wing, religious, Zionist parties; anything less will end the Jewish State of Israel. Our two pictures of Bibi above are also the view which the left wing establishment, which runs much of the media and entertainment programming as well as having a stranglehold on the education and its environment, making them hostile against the very youth Israel needs to make their own ethical decisions. We need look no further than Europe, the United States and Canada to see what could be the result here in Israel if we continue to move leftward with one caveat; we are far smaller and this makes us potentially more vulnerable thus we need to be aware and teach our children exactly what is expected and needed to avoid an inevitable takeover by Islam or any other group which comes along. This is Israel, and we have over four-thousand years of history and have out-survived every great empire which came and went along the way. Mark Twain probably stated it best when he wrote the essay titled, “Concerning the Jew.”

 


“If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star-dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

Israel Need Be Bold While Bold Will Work

We are aware that in being bold, a politician is taking risks and their actual job is to get reelected to their same position or higher and that is best accomplished keeping everything the same. We even know exactly the argument that our dear Prime Minister will use in the 2019 elections when they arrive. Your claim will be that it is uncertain if President Trump will be reelected in 2020 and because of this, we need to keep the ship strong and centered in order to survive in an uncertain future. Your opponents will sound different strategies which will include a change in course and perhaps some risks. These risks is how you will slowly eat away at these opponents claiming that their ‘radical’ suggestions are great if the timing were right, but the timing could not be any more problematic as we do not know who will win the American elections. A few weeks before the election you will find or build a strawman situation where the Joint List or Zionist Union may pull off an upset or the two could make a coalition with their two groups of parties and perhaps Meretz and Lapin or maybe Lieberman filling it out and that Israel can ill afford their getting the nod and that is a reason to leave any other right of center candidate and instead everyone need vote the only true choice to prevent this potential catastrophe. Then Likud will receive 28 or 29 Mandates and will get first shot at making a coalition. Then your strategy will have worked again using fear to win instead of using hope for a better future and you will have demanded we need caution and not rock the boat at times as uncertain as these are. It is a trap which had worked for how long now? Why not try striking while the iron is hot as the plan, take on the issues we all know must be faced head-on and to make a bold attempt towards solving them now before the elections. Trust that the triumphant hero is a far better bet for retaining power than the scare-monger claiming only he can walk that fine line between doing nothing to cautiously doing nothing to change anything so the next election the same scare mongering might still work its magic again. Your fear of failure is greater than your confidence in yourself to actually become a really great leader rather than merely the protector who held to the status-quo. Sometimes more is accomplished in the long run from someone going out in a blaze of glory and the nation benefits, and that should be your greatest hope, that the country succeed.

 

To those who wish to unseat Prime Minister Netanyahu and become the next Prime Minister, we have some advice and it is worth exactly what you are paying for it, a few minutes of your precious time and nothing more. Yes, we would consider being of greater assistance by becoming a trusted advisor to one of you as you lead our party. But here it is free of any hidden charges except it may be close to what you are planning anyways. The first advice is that you will need to approach the situation throwing caution to the wind and going for it all. Confidence is also going to be a necessity with one making very sure that the public know that now you not only feel you are ready but also that you are sure that these are the times which call for your bold leadership. You will need to come at Bibi from the right, and the further right, the better. The people of Israel, outside of Tel Aviv largely, are hungry for a leader who will storm the barricades if need be and storm the castle. No faltering or moments of doubt, for if you have any doubt that you are the person and this is the time, then move aside and let one ready to say and do all the right things for winning and for Israel. Should you have a solution which you believe is better than those we have offered, then run it with certainty. Run as if there is no tomorrow without your bold steps which are required in the short time Israel is assured of somebody having her back. Even if, or possibly especially if, President Trump does not get reelected, Israel need act immediately and strike while the iron is hot. You can list the signs which the President had conveyed and tell all Israel that we require his assistance so Israel can provide a certainty into the future. Make known what you plan to do in addressing the main problems of the Shomron and Gaza and remember that solutions have been handed out and now is the season for change and to strike to make progress before anything in the situation has even the chance of altering, then it would be well if the Israeli plan for the future were to be implemented. Things will improve only if we take the necessary steps reaping the rewards change brings to the entire situation. The Oslo Mistake was a severe and drastic action in which Israel was forced to suffer the terrible consequences and is continuing to wear that yoke around her neck and now is the time to shake off that yoke and act with the boldness of certainty. This is not the time for timidity and certainly not the time to continue with a Prime Minister who refuses to act or for a Prime Minister who claims to lead from the right when in actuality he leads as if slightly left of center from where you stand.

What should your campaign revolve around? That we can tell you in a single word, actions and results expected and how these will be accomplished under your bold approach. Do not fear that you will be too far to the right, you will be fine and far right is what the people are seeking. The truth is the Israelis desire an end to the stalemate as they have watched as caution has resulted in the loss of legitimacy and loss of regions of lands. This is another reason for actions which you propose, the suggestions are from the right of center which is closer to the purity of Zionism and free of any false hopes which rely on not rocking the boat out of fear as to what Europe may do. The future of Israel is to the Far East where she has already good relations and has built trust, something she never really had with much of Europe. Times are changing and Israel needs change as well if she is to thrive and survive. She need thrive in order to survive. You need to tell the people the truth in that seeking to avoid ridicule from Europe by kowtowing to every gut-wrenching demand for inaction from Europe who is not necessarily our friends will not work. You must stress the point that Israel needs think of Israel before thinking, fretting, worrying and even panicking over how action will be perceived by the nattering nabobs of negativism in the Old World. Israel need now lead the New World into a glittering era where hope and bold answers are the way to go, being defensive and overly cautious was great during President Obama’s attempts to destroy us but he is long gone and we may be driven to boldness and actions. And the specifics are the best part and you keep those close to your chest until a little less that than a week, immediately after the current Prime Minister makes his great speech about how only he can guide Israel through the rough and choppy seas of uncertainty. This is when you show your hand and claim that currently the seas are calm and quite well prepared for actions while we have the opportunity, we owe it to our children and their children and all future Jewish People who will turn to Israel for salvation.

 

At the very top of your plan should be the exile once more of Mahmoud Abbas, the entirety of the Palestinian Authority leaders in both the political realm and the security and military wings. This is not the cherry on top but the first act within three weeks of taking office and having built a coalition. Then Israel will offer the Arabs three choices, two are very viable and the last is very unfortunate. The Arabs in the Shomron and across all of Israel may take an equitable buyout of their properties plus a rather sizable bonus to all be utilized in getting started in some new nation and signing a promissory note that they will never again seek permanent residence within Israel. The Arabs in the Shomron may choose instead to remain and live within Israel as resident aliens who will be granted the right to vote in local elections in the selected major Arab cities chosen by Israel. These Arabs will be required to sign a non-belligerence agreement which if it is breached results in deportation, immediate and without any bonuses or other payments. We did mention a third choice, the one we hope none will resort to taking. Choosing which plan one is going to request should not take forever, thus these offers will be available for the initial six weeks after the announcement. Allow us to now get around to that third choice we said would be offered. We realize there will be a percentage of the Arabs who will decide not to pick any of the plans and instead desire to continue their war on Israelis; even these will have an option. The IDF will be given a list which will denote which choice you decided to take, the first or second, and the list will include those choosing to continue the war and those who by default made no choice thus joining those who decided to fight under the third choice. The IDF will be tasked in driving these remaining Arabs who were not in either of the first two selections out from within the Israeli borders, the ones from under the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Sèvres, the British Mandate and all other related material which all came long before World War II and were the result of World War I treaties and conferences. The final borders suggested for Israel included the Shomron and all lands west of the Jordan River and north to the border of the French Mandate and south to the Negev-Sinai border and the port city of Eilat (see map below). Resulting from three defensive struggles, Israel annexed some additional area of the Golan Heights as it had been used by Syrian snipers to shoot Israelis working their fields, tending their flocks and simply walking in an area they could see. That situation was not tolerable. Israel has also annexed all of Jerusalem with special love shown for the Temple Mount and all the special places throughout the Old City. Israel will also be annexing the remainder of the Shomron making all lands west of the Jordan River and its Valley to the north and south now a part of Israel. That would complete the plan you would tell the people which still leaves a few holes to fill.

The largest hole left in the plan are which cities will be denoted as Arab cities where they will have their vote in local elections. The Arabs already living within Israel who desired became citizens and have complete rights to vote. There will be a listing in which will be potentially short some of the cities where Arabs would also be granted voting rights. The first item which may cause Arab Panic would be that Shechem (Nablus), Jericho, Hevron and Bethlehem would revert to being Jewish towns-cities which were Israelite from time immemorial. Most of the remaining Arab towns would be included as those where they have voting rights. Should an Arab reside in one of the cities which Israel is taking or any other city which does not become part of the list of Arab cities where the alien refugees would be permitted to vote, they would be able to claim a partial moving bonus to assist their relocating to one of those other cities where they could vote. There would probably be some inexpensive but nice homes which those who chose to leave will no longer being used as a residence which are vacant and for sale. What must be made specifically understood in no uncertain terms is that the IDF will be given the assignment to seek out any former officers who were exiled of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, PLO, Security Forces and al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade along with those who chose to remain at war or did not sign onto any program and to deport them. The IDF will also be ordered to take the least risk possible and protect the soldiers’ lives and health as the paramount importance. Should resistance be run into, the IDF would once again be reminded that their soldiers’ lives are the most important and vital item which should be granted complete protection. The somewhat promising idea here is that most of what has been listed could be accomplished with a minimal call-up of reserves and still completed within approximately six-months. This method further does not require the cooperation of the King of Jordan, al-Assad of Syria, Sisi in Egypt or any other Arab leader in order to accomplish such solutions. Now, all that remains is either Bibi stepping up to the plate while still in the office of Prime Minister and changing tactics and suddenly becoming bold and decisive such that he takes the charges we suggested here or something resembling this theme. Then he could run on a great performance which resolved so many of the problems and is now ready and willing to take Israel forward with clear vision. And if not, then he is leaving an opening for the people to replace him with an Israeli ready to take the needed steps. The problem has reached a magnitude that mere managing the situation has become counter-productive and simply dangerous. Israel is in need of a leader who is willing to try and even to make some mistakes along the way, at least progress should be made and the quagmire of the Palestinian Arabs would be completed and hopefully well on its was to a form of normalcy. These truly are interesting times, the variety that try the hearts and souls of men.
