If a person can’t be loyal to his tribe and the tribe of his parents and grandparents and great grandparents, and all the way back from the slavery in Egypt to the Romans to the Spanish Inquisition, to Jewish Diaspora persecutions, to the Russian pogroms, to the Holocaust, to the every day endless anti-Israel and anti-Semitic acts and propaganda of the modern day, then who is he – nothing!
They are less than nothing! It’s not about whether you believe in God, Isaac or Abraham. It’s not about parting of the Red Sea or stories that may or may not be true. What members of any other nation deny their own heritage and ignore the incredible accomplishments of their people? It is about the millennia of awful suffering, as well as the survival against all odds of the Jewish people.
It is also about miracle of re-creation of Israel! Any so-called progressive lefty person of Jewish background, who hates his own people and country, is beyond pathetic! How can you look at yourself in the mirror?
There is almost nothing worse than a self hating Jew who refuses to recognize Israel’s legitimacy and the miracle Jews have created in the desert after the holocaust. They are embracing the fake Palestinians, whose only reason for existence is to kill Jews and destroy Israel! They are willingly buying into the BS propaganda that Israel is an apartheid state or a human rights abuser and eagerly support BDS of Jewish State!
The worst kind of self-hating are those Jews who abdicated their own heritage and religion, and surrendered to anti-Semitic dogmas!
They might as well be an Inquisitor, Nazi or Muslim. Seventy years ago, they were kapos in ghettoes and Nazi death camp, delusionally thinking that they are safe!

Britain had done all it could to disallow the creation of the Jewish state. The UK has been giving its support to the enemies of Israel since. Why should Israel play nice with Jew-haters? Israel must stop letting in international idiots, who only care about self-promotion at Israel’s expense! I understand that Prince William, most likely, will be next king of the UK, but must Israel care, especially if he supports enemies?
Top PA official says outlines of Trump proposal will give Palestinians limited self-rule, leading to 'the creation of one state with two systems'. The US administration’s yet-to-be-announced Middle East peace plan calls for maintaining the status quo between Israel and the Palestinians, while giving the Palestinians “eternal self-rule.”
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that Israel’s security forces thwarted between 20 and 30 terror attacks in Judea and Samaria each week over the past few months. Shin Bet, Israel police foiled an ISIS terror plot targeting the Temple Mount. Two cell members were also charged with planning an ISIS-style shooting attack on a Tel Aviv synagogue where one of them had worked. (Feeding enemies, by giving them work, is counter-productive! It is like letting snakes into the house. Only decisive victory, followed by ending occupation of the Jewish land by enemies, will end this perpetual stupidity!)
Nearly two dozen Spanish municipalities rescind or suspend pro-BDS measures against the State of Israel. Over the past two years, pro-Israel activists have obtained dozens of rulings, including by supreme courts, as well as legal opinions and injunctions against BDS in Spain. Some 50 Spanish municipalities have passed resolutions in recent years endorsing BDS - more than in any other European country. ('Inquisition' is still deeply rooted in Spain!)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he believed in a policy of “zero” tolerance for rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip and Syria. “There’s no tolerance for spillover, no ‘drip-drip’ (of rockets) - they get hit immediately” in response to attacks, he said. “That hasn’t always been the policy, but this policy is proving itself.” (It has been practiced before with the same result - continued terror and rocket attacks.)
The Duke, Prince William, is scheduled to go there in the summer as part of a Middle East tour. Kensington Palace said the tour was "at the request of Her Majesty's government and has been welcomed by the Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian authorities".
Deposed Fatah strongman, Mohammad Dahlan, slams the PA as ‘fascist, corrupt’. He said that Palestinians should not blame Israel alone for their 'disasters,' criticizes Qatar for 'politically motivated' Gaza aid.
Israeli Energy minister to present plan to reduce pollution. Israel aims to eliminate use of coal, gasoline and diesel by 2030. Already this year, the balance of electricity production will be 71% natural gas, 25%-27% coal, and 2% renewable energy.
BDS Founder Omar Barghouti honoured at EU event. The event was held at the European Parliament, and speakers included BDS movement founder Omar Barghouti. He outlined his perceived justifications for BDS' actions, repeatedly calling Israel "apartheid". The event took place despite numerous representations against it because of the presence of Barghouti, whose anti-two state solution comments, boycott calls and veiled anti-Semitic comments run counter to stated EU policy.
PLO Executive Committee member urges Arab countries to withdraw investments from the US and boycott US products. (Back to the Dark Ages!)
The bill, which is sponsored by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home), would if passed cause a dramatic change in property litigation. Currently, all property disputes in Judea and Samaria are brought to the High Court of Justice, whose left-leaning bent often leads rulings skewed against Jewish residents. In addition, Shaked proposes transferring additional powers from the Supreme Court to administrative courts, including petitions for freedom of information, petitions against decisions to enter and leave Israel, and the hearings for restraining orders. Some 53% of women do not trust Israeli legal system, compared to 60% of men, according to a recent survey. (Shaked is fighting Israel's legal war against the self-hating establishment!)
The leaders of the major Christian sects in Jerusalem closed the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christian pilgrims, only to re-open them after the bill allowing seizure of church lands was shelved. After 3 days of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre closure, Jerusalem shelves tax collection for churches until dispute resolved. Netanyahu's office taps government team to negotiate deal with Christian leaders. (It looks like Jews care more about Christian visitors than the Church! Why not keep it closed permanently? Weak Israeli politicians need to find self-respect! Why would they respect Israeli government if it has been back-tracking on almost all important issues?)
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the planned discussion on application of Israeli sovereignty to Judea and Samaria taken off the Ministerial Committee for Legislation agenda until Knesset's summer session. (Bibi must go and let Jewish patriots take control of Israel/Jewish future!)
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin will seek an expansion of the so-called “Muezzin bill,” aimed at limiting noise levels in residential areas, by allowing police to confiscate the loudspeakers at mosques who violate noise pollution statutes between and fining violators a minimum of NIS 10,000. (This bill is ‘in making’ for quite a while by now - This is another example of the political inaptness of Netanyahu government!)
QUOTE of the WEEK:
Thus we conclude that we cannot promise anything to the Arabs of the Land of Israel or the Arab countries. Their voluntary agreement is out of the question...” - Vladimir Jabotinsky, "The Iron Wall" – He came to this conclusion in spite of his deep desire to live in peace with Arabs!
The Mandate was a Legalised Robbery!
by Steven Shamrak.
From the moment of recognising the right of Jewish people to live on the land of their ancestors the international community, represented by the League of Nations and the United Nations, have made all possible efforts to deny the Jewish people this right. Lead and controlled by the Great Britain and France, those institutions rubberstamped and authorised the greatest legalised robbery in modern history. Any conceivable shady and disgusting deals were made to prevent the creation of the state of Israel on Eretz Israel (Land of Israel)!
In July 1922 the League of Nations entrusted the Great Britain with the Palestine Mandate. Recognizing "the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine," Great Britain was called upon to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine - Eretz Israel (Land of Israel).
Preamble. Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people…
Article 2. The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble...
Article 5. The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power...
Three months later, in order to obtain full control over the Suez Canal, Great Britain made a deal with Hashemite Kingdom, Egypt and France. The trans-Jordan (77% of the Mandate) was given to the king's brother in exchange for the Sinai, which was given to Egypt. Golan Heights (5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled Syrian Mandate. This robbery was legalised immediately by the puppet of the Great Britain and France, the League of Nations! It was a clear violation of Article 5 of the Palestinian Mandate. Our 'friends' are still quite generous in giving away the Jewish land!
Between 1922 and 1948, Jews were not allowed to move and live in the Trans-Jordan, but Great Britain and the Arab sheikhs facilitated the transfer of tens of thousands of Muslims to the Western side of the Palestinian Mandate. They were brought by truck loads from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt to the remaining part of the Mandate. At the same time, the immigration of the Jews was restricted and continuously hindered by Great Britain, the governing authority.
At the end, in its 'generosity', the United Nations divided the remaining 18% of the Palestinian Mandate into a maze of six ugly triangles. Three of them were given to Jews, Jerusalem was not included!
The Jewish people have been systematically robbed by the International community of their land rights. Our rights and inspirations have being ignored and crushed by the cruelty of International anti-Semitism! Why do Jewish leaders subscribe to the anti-Israel lies of our enemies? Why are Israeli political leaders not demanding the return of the Jewish land? We have all legal, historical, moral and spiritual rights to reclaim the Palestine Mandated lands as - Eretz Israel!
