Semipermeable Corridor

04/29/11 | by Nim [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Knesset wake up! The world around is changing and you continue blundering around in your heavily used cocoon, using every occurrence to bolster your selfish political careers.
Egypt’s new rulers have made the Philadelphia Corridor irrelevant. By opening the border from Egypt to Gaza permanently, the embargo of Gaza ends. This is a threat to Israel’s security and as such a break in the peace accorded by Camp David.
So what do we do now? Take back the Sinai peninsular, as having it in Egyptian hands is dangerous. Now open the Gaza border permanently but impose a semi permeable border control. Gaza Arabs are free to cross the border, but in a Southern direction only.
Israel’s defense force will control Sinai and so the pressure is off the Philadelphia Corridor and moved to the Suez Canal.
Israel will then also control passage of ships through the canal. Ehud Barak is appointed governor of Sinai on condition he stays there permanently. Transfer all terrorist prisoners to a new prison there. The only television they can see will be speeches from the Governor.

Coup? This can't happen in Israel

02/12/11 | by Nim [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

While dictators can be overthrown. An elected government does not need to be overthrown. The democratic process takes care of dictatorial attempts to run the country.
FALSE! The elected candidates are chosen from a preset list. The central committee of each party sets up the list. Only members of the party could have a say in the drawing up of the lists. Most people are too busy making ends meet to join the party years before the next election. So when the election draws near, the ‘party’ publishes a list, which very few have a say in compiling.
It seems to me that whatever party one chooses, the top candidates, who would be in the running for prime minister, all come from a similar stable. An elitist left winger who was planted on the list by the money wielding power groups in Israel.
That is how the choice in the last elections was; which is the least bad of the candidates.
Now each party has a list of principles, we the electorate can reasonably expect the new prime minister to follow. That we see is just a pipe dream of the democracy purists. The prime minister does whatever he likes with no recourse to the party. He is responsible to the Knesset. How do you keep the Knesset happy, you give away as many ‘posts’ as possible that any one now receiving the perks will not want the government to topple.
This is demonstrated once a week when the opposition parties introduce a no-confidence motion in the government. If the no-confidence motion is accepted, new elections could ensue. Now if they really want to overthrow the government on a matter of principle (no-confidence) they would vote with their fellow opposition partners against the government and oust it.
So we have on the same day two no-confidence motions narrowky defeated, had the parties joined forces, they could have overthrown the government. But that would result in losing their prestigious position.
SO… a coup can’t happen in Israel as the leaders of the people are too cushy in their positions and unless the party system gets revised, that’s what we will have.

Lie Number?

02/27/10 | by Nim [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

One of the oldest jokes is the group of Jews who knew all the jokes. To save time they numbered them and when someone wanted to tell a joke, he only had to call out the number and everyone would laugh.
Except Shmulick, he would call out a number and nobody would laugh. He asked Yankel, why don't they laugh at my jokes? Yankel replied "its the way you tell them".
I suggest we start to number the lies that are repeated ad nauseam about the Jews and the State of Israel.
You are invited to add to the list which I am starting now.

1. Israel is the Aggressor
2. Israel Targets Civilians
3. Israel is the cause of the Palestinian Refugee camps
4. Jews have no Historic Ties to the Land of Israel
5. The Holocaust Is a Jewish Fabrication

An Affront to who?

08/18/09 | by Michael Eshdos [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Moshiach is definitely on the way. A two-time former governor of Arkansas, praised Israel for giving Muslims access to Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock — also once the site of the ancient Jewish temples — even though the presence of a mosque there "could be considered an affront."
At last someone outside the pale of Judaism, appreciates the magnanimous gesture to freedom of religion, Israel has made by letting the WAQF run their mosques on our most holy site, despite the affront to our beliefs this gesture entails.
Thank you, Mike Huckabee, for viewing the scene through our eyes.
Israel, as far as I can recall, has never had a word of thanks or even acknowledgement for her high level of civil rights. All she ever gets is rabid hatred from the religion she has gone to great pains to allow to exist in her midst.
The Arabs consider it a sign of weakness, something to exploit for political advantage. Freedom of religion is contra to their beliefs.

This wont hurt…..

01/28/09 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Who does not have an anecdote about someone telling you “this won’t hurt..”. You can bet your bottom Shekel that it did hurt.

Why are you so sure? Because if the speaker did not have any inkling that it would hurt, he would not have mentioned it. The causing pain was at the forefront of his mind, and that is why he said it.

Why did he lie? Had he told the truth, you would have taken action to stop him.

And this is the key to reading political statements. Whatever a politician tells you he will not do, you can be assured that this is his main plan of action.

Lets look at some examples: Jan 28, 2009 :

1. Jerusalem Post

a. Opening the Gaza crossings is linked to solving the issue of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told US Mideast envoy George Mitchell ….

b. Netanyahu says Israeli withdrawal from parts of the capital will bring terror to heart of the city.

2. Arutz 7

a. (IsraelNN.com) To consider dividing Jerusalem is a “pathetic failure of imagination,” says Prof. Uzi Arad. “Given the city’s significance, it is unthinkable to split it up merely to solve a tactical problem.”

b. (IsraelNN.com) Likud party chairman and Knesset Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu warned at the Jerusalem Conference Wednesday that the Obama administration and leftist Israeli politicians will try to internationalize holy sites in Jerusalem -- and he vowed to fight the move.

c. (IsraelNN.com) Olmert similarly clarified to Mitchell that establishing a ceasefire in the region is contingent on an end to firing of rockets and mortar shells, the end to terrorist activities in Gaza, and the end to smuggling of weapons into Gaza. “Israel will respond if the understanding of the two parameters will be breached,” Olmert stated.

What was on the forefront of their minds when they made the above statements?

What Molten Lead achieved.

01/18/09 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

There were two aims; to destroy Hamas, and to put an end to rocket fire against Israel.

What was achieved?

Israel has shown it has a great army with the courage to be human while engaged against animals. This was not one of the aims of the battle, and the international media (funded by Muslim fundamentalists) have managed to get out a stronger message that incited anti-semitic mobs to pogroms all over the world.

We have not gotten the message. Not only the political leaders of Israel, each and every one of us. We are in exile, even though we physically have a large contingent in the holy land. We rely on the IDF and carry on life as usual.

Wake Up! Hear Israel! Hashem is available always. Beseech him. Why did the Jews in Egypt have to gather their own straw and get heavily afflicted? So that they would cry out to Hashem from their labour. That was what Hashem was waiting for, that they ask HIM to help. There is no one else we can turn to , but why bother to turn to anyone else! HE is available now and to everyone.

Heads I win, Tails you lose

01/10/09 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Isn't Israel blockheaded? They don't want to withdraw back to their shelters without having dismantled Hamas! Hamas want Israel to withdraw from the Gaza strip so that they can restock and carry on firing rockets at those wicked Jews. Naomi Klein in the Guardian dated January 10th 2009, urges the World to boycott Israel commercially like the World did to South Africa.
Obviously all Israel haters want Israel to commit suicide, lie down and let the Hamas kill them, the quicker the better. Will the mentally soft Israeli leftist government oblige?

Dizzy Hypnotherapy

01/05/09 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

USA Secretaries-of-State are hyper-proficient in the use of hypnosis in dealing with physical pain or psychological problems.
The “Albright • Powell • Rice” hat trick has dominated the minds of successive political leaders of the State of Israel to pursue a self destructing course.
Successive governments become desensitized to the pain of their citizens in following some nebulous roadmap to peaceful co-existence with Palestinians.
We gave them autonomy in Gaza, in a most painful extrication, and all the could do with it is vote in Hamas by a large majority. The more you give the more they demand.
Sure, it sounded great at Oslo, but this road map was constructed like a highway bypassing the cities so as to have a fast rout to nowhere. There are no on-off ramps for those wanting to use the highway.
Before Israel made any surrender in land, control or security it should have demanded some reciprocity in the form of change in attitude. The PA could have committed to a program of advertising to their population the need and benefits of coexistence with Israel.
Instead we have witnessed the progressive and systematic education of their people to blind hatred towards Israel. The non-ending sewage flow of anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish propaganda is a Red Alert signal that can only be ignored at our own peril.
Before we make anymore ‘gestures of goodwill’ such as releasing the criminals in our jails, removing roadblocks placed there for our safety, not to mention handing over our holiest sites to the care of these avowed haters of Judaism, we must insist in a change of tone. Yes Israel can have preconditions too. We demand a new vocal pitch towards this benevolent David battling with a malicious Goliath. Let your muezzins preach humanitarianism. The weapon they so cynically use against us in the world media.
Some official recognition for all we have done for the benefit of these ingrates.
We don’t stone them when they enter our town, we allow them food and medical supplies even as they are targeting their lethal rockets at our children.
We allow them into our hospitals and universities.
Our teaching of co-existence curriculum has been so effective that we have an entire portion of the country actually believing it is a viable approach.
If you find a nest of roaches in your sewer system, you don’t negotiate with them, you don’t offer them co-existence and you certainly don’t expect gratitude from them if you don’t exterminate them. The PA have shown themselves deserving of the same approach.

A Schism in my Ism

12/25/08 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

One by one the ISMs , the icons of western civilization are being knocked off their pedestals of repute. They are being shown up as shallow ideals, neither inspiring nor worthy of a following.
Nationalism, the rallying call to arms to defend your nation, country or culture has become outlawed in the current wave of globalization, as the UN tries to avoid conflicts and wars. Land acquisition by military conquest is no longer acceptable and is even unthinkable.
Zionism, the fulfilling of the dream of a Jewish return to the land of their ancestors, has been choked to death. The death throes projected into world focus at the hands of leftist governments as they evict fellow Jews from established homes and settlements in a manner reminiscent of the pogroms.
Humanitarianism, the self righteous idol of the left, masquerading as a higher level of morality, has shown itself a tool to political maneuverings. It has shown itself heavily biased against religious Jews and pro Arab.
Materialism, the reliance on wealth and power is the most recent victim of the anti-ISM trend. We are witnessing the demise of all the idols of the west and soon realize that there is only ONE to rely on.

Shabbat is coming

12/12/08 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Come the Day of Final Judgment, those imposing severe limitations on my freedom of movement on the national day of rest, will have a lot to account for if they discover that there is no Deity to judge them.

Sure we live in a Jewish State, and observing the Shabbat is part of our make up. Isn't it enough to eat gefilte fish once a week?

In the old country I used to go to Shul on a Friday night. It is not the same experience here.
The choir would sing, now; everyone mumbles at their own speed.
The cantor entertained us with operatic dexterity, here; the entertainment is to see how often he can rock backwards and forwards in 5 seconds. The only sign of dexterity visible is the suppleness of his back.
We used to every now and then have a little chat with your neighbor whom you hadn't seen for a week. Now, everyone stops their mumbling and rocking to look at you and say "Shush". How did they notice my little whispered conversation when they ware so engrossed talking to the Master of the universe?
