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?”

As Mother Used to Say, Be Nice

 

Apparently, either your mother did not stress this as did ours or you just simply do not care when it comes to your sensibilities being bruised. Our parties were pressured and compelled and coerced by Bibi Netanyahu to the point of him coming to the final negotiations which he arranged and demanded that our leadership accept the compromise he proposed and placed before us with an attitude that we had best do as we were told. We acquiesced and took the road of compromise accepting his ultimatum despite severe misgivings. Now the American Jewish Committee (AJC) and American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) have decided to protest that additional Jews will be represented very possibly in the Knesset because these are nationalist, religious, Zionist Jews with a fair number of them believing the teachings of the late Rabbi Kahane (ז״ל), which apparently is not just an anathema to you but apparently as in against the whole of humanity. But rather have us comment about your ravings, why not just include the entirety of the two groups protestations here for all to read. (For those who would demand to see the original, here is a link to the Tweet.) Our ranting continues below, we will try to explain a few misgivings and outright false narrative of the teachings of Rabbi Kahane. Rabbi Kahane was not and never would have been the evil monster the left paints him as having been, so, if you do not have anything nice to say about the Rabbi, then say nothing concerning the Rabbi and his legacy which many of us respect and are old enough to remember what he taught and stood for.

Often, these days, when people throw Rabbi Kahane into a conversation as something horrific and derogatory, it will indicate more often than not two things; first they never read or studied the teachings of the Rabbi and second is that they are arguing against conservatism or Zionism if not both. We will be including a link to our source for the small amount of his teachings and the main driving force which propelled him forward as well as some commentary on the history of how he was treated with venom by his political rivals and adversaries, something which has not lessened over the years. The main implication when liberal and leftist individuals and groups throw Rabbi Kahane into the discussion, they are implying that those they are hanging this actual honor upon desire murdering the Arabs in order to end the Arab Israeli conflict. That is wrong as the Rabbi never taught or even intimated being those who initiated violence and spoke of passivity in the face of law enforcement and even those who would provoke his followers often with violence of their own. The good Rabbi never desired harm to come to anyone; he fought for equal justice and a rational solution to the problems still plaguing Israel today. Had people listened to what he was stating and followed his advice instead of appointing Election Commission members from the far left and then requesting they bar Rabbi Kahane’s Kach and (Kahane Chai) Party on the grounds of their being racist, unfounded and groundless accusations as Rabbi Kahane was not against anyone, Arab, Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindu or whatever, he was strongly Zionist and demanded that Israel be given the same respect and treatment as would have been granted any other nation, no more and no less. Much of what we have stated on our posts are along similar if not virtually identical lines as to what the good Rabbi taught and to be honest, I was a member of his Jewish Defense League and in all my time with them, not once did I witness anyone initiating violence. The closest we came to violence was holding our ground and not being pushed off the Washington Mall and in the general direction of the Tidal Basin. Mind you, it was a beautiful day and a swim might have been enjoyable, just not when fully dressed and not of our intentions.

 

So, what did Rabbi Kahane teach and what did we stand for and teach. First thing is he taught Torah and Jewish Laws. He taught Talmud and Jewish History. He would apply these to the situation in Israel as well as to how they applied to our lives and interactions with others. He taught us to respect others even when their actions did not warrant being granted such respect. He stressed passivity in the face of violence until the moment that one’s safety was endangered and then only if no other avenue was available. Even the Rabbi did not condone sitting there when you were backed into a corner and you were about to be struck repeatedly by four or five people who simply desired to hurt you because they disagreed with your politics. His main point when it came to the Arabs was a simple one of exchange of populations to avoid traumas and settle differences. This was and is not a new concept nor is it radical in any way. This was the means by which much of the problems between India and Pakistan were solved except the fact that about one-third of the Muslims remained in India (this will come in again subsequently). This was the resulting reality which took place between Poland and Germany when their borders were redrawn after World War II. This has been a reality with the Russians and their borders with a number of instances. Population transfers have been a method for solving border troubles since ethnic cleansing went out of fashion, which it really has not and we may be about to witness ethnic cleansing in its finest and most complete form, just not in Israel. This idea, this very valid idea was at the heart of what Rabbi Kahane spoke when he was involved with politics. In more private settings, he also taught that one need treat every human with respect which did not mean one had to like them or even desire them but they still were to be given the respect we as Jews are to show to all people, Jew, Gentile, stranger in our lands or any other classification as that is what Torah instructs.

 

So why was he considered to be a racist? Well, because he advocated for completing the population transfer which was initiated by the Arab world across the entirety of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) nations when they expelled eight-hundred-twenty-one-thousand Jews with often only the shirt on their back if even that. Where did the Arabs send these unwanted Jews whose families often dated back to before the arrival of the Arabs and their Islamic religion. They sent them away and did not care if they lived or died. If nobody would have taken them, they would have simply been slaughtered or driven into the sea. Granted, some had citizenship with United States, Canada, France or Britain and took refuge there as they had passports. That was a tiny fraction and the remainder looked to a world which acted exactly the same as they had acted towards the Jews fleeing Germany in the MS St, Louis, closed ports and no sympathy or even recognition that there were people in trouble, well, more accurately Jews in trouble and facing being slaughtered. These Jews were fortunate as they had an option that the unfortunate Jews on the fated MS St. Louis did not have, Israel. So, during the 1950’s, largely the first half, the vast majority of the Jews, over eight-hundred-thousand, who were thrown from their birth country and the nation in which they had survived, sometimes barely, for over a thousand and even two thousand years.

 

Now we are going to take a little side trip and talk about some facts which have been largely ignored, intentionally discarded and too often refuted as being lies despite the known facts which have been presented over the years. The difficulty with the truth was that it would make things inconvenient for the Europeans when dealing with the Arab world, something which was problematic enough. We are going to deal with this through three approximately nine minute each testimonial videos. Please do take the time to watch them and pay particular attention to those parts where the video quality might lack refinement, this happens when your records are quite old, but these witnesses and testimonials are worth all your efforts and please pass them on to others who are ignorant of the truth, the reality of being a Dhimmi Jew.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The reality about the Jews lives in the Muslim Arab world is it was anything but paradise in the desert. Everything that was perpetrated against the Jews in Europe, pogroms, ethnic cleansing, being driven from their homes and communities, forced conversions and every other indecency which the Jews suffered in Europe, the Jews in the Arab world under the Caliphate and the Ottomans suffered in equal measures. The dispossessions and slaughter of Jewish communities began under Islam in Medina when the Banu Qurayza continuing through their expulsions from the Arab and Muslim worlds. This attitude towards the Jews as accused and defiling the natural faith of Islam has continued into the present day with Israel taking the place of the Jews. The war against the Jews in the Holy Lands began almost a century before the founding of the Jewish State and has not let up since. The Arabs have made clear that the only solution to the Arab Palestinian problem is the elimination of Israel with it replaced with an Arab state and the Jews sent homeless into the world and should no nation accept the, as they claim, refuge of humanity, then they have a final solution which they will implement. The idea for the Jews to wear a yellow piece of cloth on the arm of their clothing did not start with the Nazis but was initially used to identify the Jew under an Arab leader. That is a reality they do not teach in the West as the West simply took the Arab version of their history as fact and never bothered with investigating the reality as doing such would have been too difficult and time consuming. The truth is both the Eastern Islamic World and the Western Christian World both had no use or love lost when it came to the Jews. Both civilizations used the Jew as their scapegoat upon which to place all their sorrows, woes, catastrophes and any other problem for which they refused to take ownership. In both societies, it was always the Jew which was responsible and bore the brunt of blame for any calamity.

Back to Rabbi Kahane and what he provided as the solution to the Arab difficulties within Israel. The Rabbi simply looked at the fact that the Arab world had expelled their Jews which Israel absorbed. Within the same timeframe, the Arab world had caused several hundred thousand Arabs to flee from within the Jewish areas of Israel in order to facilitate the Arab slaughter of the Jews. The reasoning was that once the Arabs (read Muslims) had left the region, then the invading armies could simply slaughter any person they encountered and be assured that they would be Jews. This was stated well by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time who stated, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” His intentions are nothing new in the Islamic World from throughout their history and their view of the “other” will remain similar to that of their treatment of the Jew. For an example of the Islamic view of Christianity, one need look no further than the fate of the Coptic Christians in Egypt or the Yazidi received from the Islamic State. With the Jews expelled, the Christians suffer as the next targets. The Rabbi knew and stated predictions of what would become the reality should the solution not be implemented. The Rabbi simply stated that the Jews came to Israel and the solution were for the Arabs to be enticed and pressed to relocate to the Arab countries, often returning to their land of their birth. This was his response to the coming problems well before these difficulties became reality. His first insistence was for the six to seven-hundred-thousand Arab which they imprisoned in camps behind barbed wire and with armed guards initially demanding that they be returned in Israel so as to reduce the Jews to a minority and destroy Israel. He also thought that the Arabs within Israel be given an option to relocate outside Israel and provided with a monetary enticements. He would point out that this would be far more than the Jews were admitted when they were expelled from the Arab countries. Below is a video of Rabbi Kahane which is in Hebrew. For an English transcript follow this link which also includes further arguments on why this merger is not the end of the world as it has been painted.

 

 

First, once the election is over, the Otzma Yehudit Party representatives will separate and not be bound to the other parties. Their inclusion was mostly forced onto Jewish Home and National Union Parties. Many of us were more favorable for the Likud Party to allow the Otzma Yehudit Party onto their list if they were so intent on never permitting any votes to go to waste. Here is the real reason that Bibi Netanyahu was so insistent that there be this merger, he knew it would cause the exact difficulties and bad publicity which the AJC and AIPAC have already initiated. He made a promise that Likud and the Jewish Home alliance would not attack one another during the campaign. He knew that the media and the leftist parties along with Bennett’s New Right Party would use this merger to demean our alliance for the Likud and he was not hoping to not waste votes but to assure that Jewish Home and related parties do not reach minimum in order to be admitted to the Knesset or reach so few mandates that Bibi could simply ignore them when making a coalition. Further, if the right wing parties were crippled and unable to provide sufficient mandates to make a coalition, then Bibi will be free to make a left-centrist coalition and possibly simply enact what Gantz and Lapid have proposed, simply do for the Shomron another disengagement such as was done in Gaza. General Gants (ret) has stated that the IDF learned of a better means of removing the Jews from an area and simply gifting the territory to the Palestinian Authority and wiping their hands claiming that they got the land they demanded and that is the end of the problem. Of course, this will not end the problem, it will exacerbate the problem and Israel will start to suffer terror attacks similar to what was already occurring before the Six Day War when there was no disputed territory. The difference is that it will more approach if not exceed the levels of terrorism suffered during the Second Intifada where over a thousand Israelis were murdered and tens of thousands were injured with many having debilitating injuries which will afflict them for the rest of their lives. Rabbi Kahane purported the only sane solution but the Arabs and the world are not seeking a sane solution, they are more likely seeking a final solution.
