Leftists, the Israeli Nationality Law and President Trump

 

We threw in President Trump more to get your attention than as anything shockingly real. The reality where the leftists have gone berserk in the United States and Israel over things which if they were behind similar concepts or power, that would be considered normal. When anybody else is in power, then things are upside down, dangerous and just wrong. And we all know when things are just wrong; the left is out in the streets demanding their right to correct all wrongs and make things correct, correct defined as them in control and nothing less. When President Obama was elected and there were some who protested briefly, the left had a great saying, elections have consequences. Now that Trump was elected President, we learn that elections in deed do have consequences, when the left wins the consequence is everyone must just be quiet and accept their superiority and when the left loses an election we have to listen to their scare-mongering and consistent conspiracy theories which simply demand that the election be reversed and their candidate declared the winner or they will never be quiet. There may be some really bad news coming in 2020 should President Trump run for reelection, though with the treatment he has received, one can barely understand why he would desire going through the mistreatment, but he probably will simply because he believes in what he is doing and, despite what you might believe, he really does love his country. But we would rather talk about what a limited number of American and European leftists along with Israeli leftists are screaming about, the new Israeli Nationality Basic Law.

 

We thought, we wonder if any other nations have nationality laws which define the basic citizenship theme and how others can, if at all, become citizens and other similar processes. We found a little information. To save everyone the bother of going to the link, the following nations are listed by Wikipedia as having nationality laws: Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, People’s Republic of China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Ghana, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Serbia, Spain, Turkey, Taiwan, Ukraine, United Kingdom and also the United States. Should we expect leftists in all these countries out with great indignation. For some odd reason, we figure this will not happen while the world over people are denouncing the right of Israel to act exactly as have most other nations. One question, have you ever actually read the document, and that is all it is, a document which is declaratory in its nature and does absolutely nothing to anyone, for anyone and simply states the original Zionist dream which, like it or not, is to establish a Jewish State. It actually became necessary to reestablish the actual dream that is Israel. We are not there as of this time, but in many ways, things are starting to head in a healthier future. Nobody will be finding that anything in their daily lives changed absolutely by nothing. Nobody was granted additional rights that already did not exist and equality remains unchanged in business, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and every other right with an improving court system that is a work in progress and hopefully continues under similar or the same leadership. Israel is the same as it was before the Nationality Basic Law.

What is sad is those who have simply deciding Israel is an illiberal who placed eleventh happiest nation as well as being the happiest nation in the Middle East. Yes, the Druze are a well accepted and are very wonderful Israeli citizens who live in an interwoven fabric, as do many others no matter their ethnicity. The fact that those who are screaming, sometimes accusatorial in nature, all of your protests are largely formed upon word of mouth, gossip, rumors and disaster scenarios. As a service for the public, we have seen and copied the document of the “Basic Law: Israel – The nation state of the Jewish people” so those who have yet to read the actual legislation, here is your chance to pick what in the actual law you find so offensive to protest with such exuberance. We provided a link so anyone may check and see if we reworded anything, we didn’t.

 

There is one thing which nobody ever speaks about, such as protesting with others who are truly obsessed with Israel and only Israel, except in the United States and among fellow news addicts. The truth is many protests are great excuses to miss work and possibly still paid as you are representing all the right people. You and a group of friends go to numerous demonstrations and others actually make a living going to protests where often there was free food and other benefits. Not every protester even knows what they are protesting, but whatever it is, it must be one of the worst and most serious concerns or why would there be so many people here. It’s fine as some of the same happens with right wing and conservative gatherings, the difference is in the numbers the leftists gather, they are much more fun. Israel simply fell presumably on the, to be protested over everything listing and as such cannot help but be protested by all the right, or is it correct, people. Actually, recently it has been rather hot and humid enough to make protesting less comfortable. But the true believers will be out, and we salute your zeal.

 

The truth is below and yes, we read it and do not believe it requires our commentary. We do support this law and do believe it was necessary considering the lack of stability in the area and all of the world, national, NGO, leftist protests or other pressures are going to overturn this “Basic Law” passed by a majority of the entire Knesset. That is the sole means for altering this law, not the courts as this is not just any legislation, this is a law thought important enough to go to the lengths for making it a Basic Law. Now, only another Basic Law can alter or overturn the Nation State Basic Law. Sometimes the courts, even the Supreme Court, are required to stand down and simply enforce and act in the interest and any influence which they may have felt reading the actual law. If only the leftists would simply settle down as should the minorities and work to legally make your case within the Knesset, after all, that is the body we elected here in Israel. New elections will come in 2019 or as soon as Bibi had all his eggs in place and starts a ripple which breaks those eggs one after the other. Some parties really took one for the team last elections and now they are back in the bottom representative wise, but the climb back will be made as difficult as possible as some of these parties have a future if only they were not sniped upon. Politics are the same wherever the people are truly free. Unfortunately, far too much of our world has little if any freedom to act and be whatever they pleased. Israel is not amongst those nations and has little plans on ever being anything else other than free to think and act as one pleases within the law. It is up to the people to choose their leadership with great care and after deep concentration and even a little consternation. Below is the actual law, please read and be educated by the simplest method, sources. Please note paragraph eleven which explains exact method which is permitted for this law to be altered, changed or annulled. The Supreme Court would be overstepping their authority if they attempt to annul the Nationality Basic Law as well as declaring an intense conflict with Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.
