Israeli Left Warming up to Idea of a Military Coup
Israeli Left Warming up to Idea of a Military Coup
By Steven Plaut
Israel's anti-democratic radical Left has a new brilliant brainstorm idea. Having despaired of ever convincing more than a trivial portion of the Israeli public of the correctness of its "ideas," it now would like to impose its ideas on the country by means of a military coup.
It is now their favorite way of repairing the intolerable situation under which Israelis keep electing the wrong people, the non-Left, by huge majorities. Democracy should only be accepted when it results in leftist hegemony.
The idea of peace-by-coup is being promoted by Haaretz, that SWAT TEAM FIELD ARTILLEY of the radical anti-Israel Left, which tells the country's leftists each morning what they think about everything. Haaretz and its flocks of sheep have been trying to recruit pressures from overseas against the Israeli government to coerce it into acquiescing and accepting the political agenda of the Far Left that is otherwise rejected by 98% of Israeli Jews. It wants Israel to be coerced via BDS terrorism and by recruiting the EU members to recognize "Palestine" in Israeli territory in defiance of Israeli sovereignty, in both cases showing its disdain for democracy and for Israeli independence. But instead of welcoming the foreign extortion, the vast majority of Israelis see BDS as anti-Semitic terrorism and see the soliciting of EU countries to engage in anti-Israel actions as treason.
So Zvi Harel, one of the regular Haaretz pinkologists (pink journalists) leads the flock of sheep to go one step further, calling for a military coup to fix the problem. On May 11, he dropped all pretenses about believing in democracy:
'When the government adopts and cultivates values that the army leadership sees as a threat to the country's existence, and when the public, which provides the army with its manpower, demands that the IDF become corrupt and bestialize itself, the military's top brass will face a dilemma. It will have to decide what constitutes the ultimate threat to the security and existence of the country: Is it thousands of missiles and Palestinian knife attackers or is it a government that is shaping the public into a monster threatening to devour Israeli democracy's fundamental values….But it will not be the army that causes the revolution, if it occurs. The political leadership that is currently pushing the army into a position in which it has to defend itself and its values is what could bring about the first Jewish military coup – one which may have already begun.'
The fondness of the Left for a military coup as a way to impose its agenda upon the country will seem bizarre only to those who do not realize how much of the senior IDF brass in Israel is leftist. The Israeli military shares guilt for the "Oslo" debacle, failing to warn it would lead to disaster. For decades the Israeli intelligence services were dominated by leftists, no doubt explaining many of their fiascos. The presence of far leftists in the IDF leadership was illustrated dramatically recently when an ignorant leftist general compared Israel to Nazi Germany, to the chortles of delight of the anti-Israel Left. This is the same Left that declares everyone who disagrees with the Left is a fascist.
So you can see why the Left might find the idea of a military coup to its liking.
Ben Gurion "University" loses large donation because sponsoring one-sided anti-Israel "conference"
1. Ben Gurion "University" holds one-sided "conference" to support treasonous espionage group "Breaking the Silence," in which only anti-Israel ultra-leftists allowed to speak.
Major donor to BGU cancels donation:
A prominent British donor is withholding a $1 million donation from Ben Gurion University of the Negev to protest the school's sponsorship of a conference that includes members of Breaking the Silence, The Jerusalem Post has learned.
British businessman Michael Gross, a longstanding member of the Beersheba university's board of governors, explained his decision to withhold the donation in a letter to the Post.
"Next Monday, Ben-Gurion University will officially sponsor a conference by leading figures and supporters of Breaking the Silence. This is effectively financed by the Israeli government and ignorant foreign donors, but absolutely nothing is done about it," he wrote.
The conference, titled, "Whistle-blowing throughout the ages. And today...," was organized by the department of Jewish history in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The conference title in Hebrew, "Shovrei Shtika," can be translated as "Whistle- blowing," or as "Breaking the Silence," the name of the NGO that publishes anonymous testimony from soldiers on alleged IDF abuses.
Speakers at the conference will include Yuli Novak, CEO of Breaking the Silence, and Nadav Weiman, the organization's public-relations coordinator, who will speak on the closing panel and offer a "personal testimony."
Gross wrote in his letter that, "as one of the longest- standing governors of the university, I intend to withhold a gift of $1 million which otherwise I would have pledged at the forthcoming Board of Governors meeting. It is about time the activities of these self-hating Jews, traitors to the country, are curtailed and not allowed to continue under the bogus claim of academic freedom.
"If the Israeli government hasn't got the guts to do anything, at least Israeli and foreign donors should set an example," he said.
In a conversation with the Post on Thursday, Gross confirmed that he intended to withhold the donation, which would have gone toward scholarships.
Gross added that his was not the only donation withdrawn from the university because of what he characterized as anti-Zionist activity, and that at least one other donor had taken back an $8m. gift in the past.
"The Israeli government talks about BDS, but there is no use talking about BDS abroad when it is going on in your own country," he said.
2. As you know, a group of pro-jihad radical anti-Semitic homosexuals is battling for the destruction of Israel and has invented the nonsense term "pinkwashing." The term supposedly refers to the use by pro-Israel people of Israel's tolerant treatment of homosexuals as a PR device to show Israel in a positive light, whereas the gay anti-Semites giggling about "pinkwashing" claim it is all simply a tactic to prettify and hide the ultimate evil of Israel.
The question is what is the appropriate response to the anti-Semitic gays participating in the "pinkwash" jihad against Israel.
One wag suggested treating them the way ISIS will treat them when their "pinkwash" jihad gets its way - and simply toss them off roofs. What do you think?
3. Haaretz has a new scoop. It seems that Sheldon Adelson, the conservative casino moghul, friend of Bibi, and owner of the rightish Israel Hayom freebie paper in Israel, purchased a small newspaper in Las Vegas. He immediately replaced some of its staff and implemented a managerial regime where the paper would reflect his opinions.
Haaretz is outraged! What about pluralism, diversity, journalistic freedom, it screams.
That is right, the screams about a lack of pluralism and diversity in Adelson's new newspaper are coming from the most totalitarian anti-pluralistic monolithic newspaper in the Western world - Haaretz, where no non-leftist thought is tolerated, where by comparison Pravda under Brezhnev was pluralistic.
4. The Palestinian savages announced that they are opening a Palestinian "museum." I was going to make a spoof of it in which the museum displays Holocaust denial exhibits and medieval exhibits about Jews making matzos out of gentile children, while of course all the while wailing about Palestinian "victimhood." But then I realized that is precisely what it will really be so the spoof would not work.
This is not the first time a "museum" was created as a weapon of racist aggression and hatred, to facilitate a totalitarian regime of mass murder.
Previously was the Fuhrermuseum in Germany.

Hebrew University's war against Orthodox Women
1. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, or more precisely its politicized School of Law, operated a fundamentalist jihad these past days … against religious women.
The law school has a number of religious women students. Each year it runs a spring "gala" party for students, with music and dancing. This year the religious women in the law school requested that a small corner of the hall be partitioned off in such a way so they could conduct there women's-only dancing, among themselves. The rest of the hall would have dancing for men and women together.
When word got out of the proposed atrocity, the anti-religious academic Left went on a rampage. The forces of darkness are seeking to thrust Israeli academia into clericalist coercion, they moaned. The coercion being of the form of letting the religious women who wish to do so dance in a corner without men. If a similar request had come from lesbians, the same people would have fallen over one another to endorse it!
On professors chat lists, the tenured Left denounced the very idea of even allowing such primitive religious people to attend universities. The same people who are the first to endorse "safe spaces" for black students on US campuses where whites are prohibited insisted that the separate dance corner was a threat to civilization. The radical feminizts in Israel denounced the idea as equivalent to turning Israel into Iran.
The very idea of accommodating the request of these women was a form of suppression and dehumanization of women, belched the tenured Left. Why can't they just be like us.
In the end the law school student union voted to refuse the women's request. No dance corner for them.
The secularist Left is again safe and unthreatened by backward religion and diversity.
2. Israel's worst-ever Prime Minister Joins the "Fascism" Choir of the Left
Yes, Ehud Barak, arguably the worst Prime Minister in Israel's history, the guy who proclaimed that if had been born an Arab he would be a terrorist, the guy that tried to surrender to Syria and let it move its armies to the shores of the Sea of Galilee, the guy who set new lows in corruption, the guy who DID surrender to the Hezb'Allah and singlehandedly created the massive 2006 war against Israel by the Hezb'Allah, the coward who simply fled the scene of a massive military training accident. He also wanted to turn the Old City of Jerusalem over to the savages.
That is the same Barak this week claiming that the Likud leaders are fascists, joining the list of mindless leftists who insist that everyone who disagrees with them are fascists.
Repost of old item: ISRAEL'S MUSIC MAN
The Israeli Labor Party recently selected Ehud Barak, who had been prime minister from 1999 to 2001, to serve as its party chief and contender for prime minister in the next election, probably in 2008.
But once he left the army, he went out shopping for political ideas and ended up buying the silliest ones available on the Shimon Peres/Oslo vintage clothing rack. He attempted to turn the Golan Heights over to Syria, which would have allowed the Syrian military to advance to the shores of the Sea of Galilee. This inspired me at the time to write a parody of an old Bobby Darin classic, with Ehud Barak singing "Splish Splash I was taking a Ba'ath."
It continued: "Splish, Splash! I jumped back in the bath. Well how was I to know here was appeasement going on?"
And now Barak is desperately looking for a new campaign jingle. Being a helpful sort, I thought I would give him a hand.
To understand the new song, you need to recall that in 1998 Barak declared: "I imagine that if I were a Palestinian of the right age, I would, at some stage, have joined one of the terror organizations."
My proposed campaign song for Reb Ehud is based on the wonderful "If I Were a Rich Man" from "Fiddler on the Roof." Ready? Here goes!
Dear God, you made so many, many cowardly people.
I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be a coward.
But it's no great honor, either!
So, what would have been so terrible if
I had a small dose of gumption?
If I were a terrorist,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba
deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bomb.
If I were a Hamas man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba
deedle deedle dum.
If I were a biddy bomber bum,
3. The following was posted to a list of University of Haifa professors, after several members of the tenured Left posted messages there insisting that there was no nefarious agenda behind the holding of "Nakba Day" mourning events:
The Arab nationalist anti-Israel radicals and their fellow travelers from the Jewish radical Left are insisting that everyone commemorate "Nakba Day," where Nakba means catastrophe. On that day they want the world to mourn the victory of Israel over its genocidal enemies and also to mourn the very existence of Israel. Apologists for the Nakba nuts are claiming that they simply want everyone to commemorate all forms of suffering, including the "suffering" of the genocidal Arab militias, gangs, and armies that unsuccessfully attempted to annihilate the Jews of Israel in 1948-9. There is no political agenda to be read into those taking this position, argue the apologists for Nakba Day events with a straight poker face.
Well, it behooves us to make a list of OTHER completely apolitical and neutral positions regarding human suffering that demonstrate that there are no political agendas behind the choice of which "tragedies" are selected to be commemorated and mourned.
First, we must all agree that a day of commemoration for the tragic losses in property values by white slave owners in the American south, stripped of their slave assets, as a result of the loss of the Confederacy in the American Civil War would be a great step in the direction of neutral apolitical honoring of human rights and dignity. Clearly there would be no political agenda behind such a position.
Then we should be holding special campus days of commemoration and empathy for male rapists who have been injured while violently raping women. Their bruised knees and knuckles and scratched faces are human tragedies that all compassionate members of society must honor and respect in the name of neutral human rights and apolitical dignity. While we are on the subject, members of the Boko Haram group in Nigeria who have ever been insulted or called names by Christian girls should also be specially honored and empathy expressed for their plight. Clearly there would be no political agenda behind those taking such a position.
After that, we need to hold a special day of remembrance for the guards at Gulag facilities in the days of Stalin who suffered terribly and at long distances from their homes and families in order to man and staff the gulag internment camps. Clearly there would be no political agenda behind those taking such a position.
Then a special day of sympathy should be held on September 11 each year to remember the sufferings of the Al-Qaeda hijackers who died such terrible deaths that day in 2001.
A much more important even would have to be the day in which the German and Japanese victims of Allied bombing raids are remembered and honored, and there of course should be no need to mention any other people who suffered during World War II, since there is no need for proportionality or inclusion of unrelated cases of human suffering. Clearly there would be no political agenda behind those taking such a position.
To top it all off, we would of course want the Law School at the University of Haifa to operate special clinics for prisoner rights that only provide free legal counsel to convicted Arab terrorists. Why confuse the issue by bringing up unrelated cases of prisoners, which would only make people think there is an ideological agenda behind the choice?!
And after all of that, then by all means, do hold completely apolitical Nakba Day mourning events that have nothing at all to do with any ideological agenda. Clearly there is no political agenda behind those engaging in such behavior.

Pagan Asslibs and the "Trans"-pseudo-rabbis
1. JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE PAGAN ASSLIBS (ASSIMILATIONIST LIBERALS) OF THE US JEWISH COMMUNITY (AS WELL AS THE COMMIES FROM THE FORWARD) COULD NOT POSSIBLY GET ANY MORE IDIOTIC:
Meet the "transgendered" pseudo-rabbis!
In the next few years, the number of transgender rabbis in America is expected to double — from three to six.
The tiny cohort makes up a miniscule percentage of the rabbis graduating rabbinical school (sic), but these individuals have already played a big role in their respective seminaries to provoke conversations about gender and Judaism. They're also paving the way for more transgender rabbis to come….
The asslibs will no doubt soon be debating which bathrooms these trans-pseudo-rabbis need to use. I personally think they should be told to use fire hydrants.
If Bruce Jenner joins this pagan cult, would his genitals be usable as the Afikoman?
How 'bout if we eliminate all "gender reassignment" treatments and funding, take all the money saved, and use it for treatments that might take the tranny lobby and similar PC leftist twits and reassign them as earthlings?
2. The "Nakba" Debunked
by Steven Plaut
The world media are filled with Big Lies
about the "Nakba," the supposed "catastrophe"
and "ethnic cleansing" of Arabs when Israel was
created in 1948.
But now an interesting source has come
along to debunk this massive campaign of
Consider the following citation (emphasis
added): "The Arab armies seemingly entered
Palestine (in 1948) to protect the Palestinians
from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, they
abandoned them, forced them to emigrate and to
leave their homeland, imposed upon them a
political and ideological blockade and threw them
into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the
Jews used to live in Eastern Europe, as if we were
condemned to change places with them. The
Arab States succeeded in scattering the
Palestinian people and in destroying their unity."
OK, current events students, name the
source for that quote.
The answer is … (drumroll) … Abu Mazen
(Mahmoud Abbas), the "President" of the
Palestinian Authority, in an article he wrote in the
Beirut magazine Falastin el-Thawra, in March
1976 (cited in the weekly column by Ben Dror
Yemini in Maariv, May 27, 2011).
And that is not the only useful citation
from Abu Mazen. Last week the very same Abu
Mazen had an article in the NY Times, in which he
tells his own personal "Nakba" family story.
There he claims that the Jews expelled the Arabs
right after the UN's partition resolution of 1947
(which called for creating two new countries, a
Jewish and an Arab state, in the area of the
British Mandate). Abu Mazen writes that he and
his family were expelled (from Safed) to Syria and
forced to live there in an old canvas tent.
Well, Ben Dror Yemini does some
homework. The UN resolution, first of all, was in
November 1947. The battle for Safed took place
in May 1948. Second, Abu Mazen's family in
Safed was very wealthy, with more than enough
ready capital to coast along comfortably for quite
some time. But most significantly, Abu Mazen's
family went to Jordan, not Syria. Only much later
did they move to Damascus. In addition, Safed
Arabs fled in large part in 1948 because they
were expecting retaliation for the pogroms they
themselves had launched against the Jews of the
city in 1929.
And just who is the source for claiming
that Abu Mazen was lying through his fangs in
that NY Times piece?
Why, none other than Abu Mazen
himself, again! In 2009 he gave an interview to
the Palestinian Authority TV channel, telling of his
family's wealth and their move to Jordan.
Oh, and the same week, Haaretz, that
Palestinian newspaper published in Hebrew,
quotes one Ismail Fahr a-Din from the Golan
Druse village of Majdal Shams as claiming to
remember very clearly the Palestinian refugees
arriving in that town (back then still under Syrian
occupation). Only one itsy bitsy problem though.
Turns out the "witness" is 57 years old and so
was born six years after Israel's War of
More generally, I think that any time
anyone suggests that we need to empathize with
the "Nakba" of the "Palestinians," they should be
directed to contemplating East Prussia.
East Prussia, where in many ways World
War II began (in Hitler's campaign for Danzig),
was emptied out near the end of the war, with
hundreds of thousands of Germans fleeing the
approaching Red Army and with hundreds of
thousands more evicted after the Soviets pushed
through East Prussia into Berlin. In all, 1.8 to 2.2
million East Prussians were driven out or fled.
That is four times the number of "Palestinian
refugees" from 1948-49. Parts of East Prussia
were annexed by Russia, the rest being
incorporated into Poland.
And what about mourning for their
"catastrophe?" No one in the West has ever
believed East Prussians deserve any sympathy or
support or compensation for their "plight." They
were part of the German monstrosity that had
launched the war and they became refugees as a
direct result of the crimes and aggressions of the
German people, crimes they enthusiastically
endorsed and in which they participated. Exactly
like the circumstances under which "Palestinian
Arabs" became refugees as a result of launching a
genocidal war of aggression and then losing.
Think the "Palestinians" deserve
compassion? Sure, right after the East Prussians
are granted a "Right of Return."
3. Zionist students ordered not to wave Israeli flags at University of Haifa. You know, the same University of Haifa where the Law School prohibits the singing of Hatikva:
4. Makor Rishon over the weekend published a survey of the political views of Russian-Israelis, a huge and growing portion of the population.
The big news is the utter failure of the Left to make any inroads with them. Of Russian-Israelis claiming to have some political identification (most of them), 62% identify with the Likud, 30% with the Rightish party of Avigdor Lieberman, 7% with Bennett's party.
Only 4% identify with the Labor Party and none at all with Meretz.

Since when is Criticism Prohibited in Israel? Chill out! Join the Left!!
Since when is Criticism Prohibited in Israel? Chill out! Join the Left!!
We are the progressive Israeli forces for peace. We read Haaretz. We protest against intolerance towards the Other. We oppose occupation. We want a Palestinian state. We want equality. We want people to be nice.
We are outraged that the politicians and media have attacked the general who compared Israel to Nazi Germany. Whatever happened to freedom of speech?
Why can't people criticize Israel, denounce its leaders, question its agenda, challenge its motives? What do you think, that Israel is beyond criticism, exempt from denunciation? Chill out!
While we defend the rights of all to criticize Israel, there are some other things that are clearly beyond the pale of legitimate public discourse.
Take, for example, the attacks by some against the radical Left in Israel. There are people who are criticizing the Israeli Left, denouncing its leaders, questioning its agenda, challenging its motives. Calling us anti-Israel and anti-Zionist. And THAT is anti-democratic!
The incitement against the Left must stop. When people claim the radical Left is motivated by hostility to Israel, they are not engaged in legitimate discourse. The Left's motives are beyond the realm of legitimate examination and forensic criticism. The opponents of the Left are endangering lives. Just like before Rabin was assassinated.
When opponents of the Left claim that our support for BDS boycotts against Israel is a form of terrorism, THEY need to be reined in. When opponents of the Left claim that it is anti-democratic to call upon countries to undermine Israeli sovereignty and recognize Palestine, those opponents need to be silenced. When people accuse us of secret delight at terrorist attacks against Jews, they are exposing us to ridicule. How dare they! Their racist books need to be banned. Their captive media must be shut down. Israeli academic institutions must be purged of them. They are proliferating incorrect thinking. Israel needs to build large internment camps for such dangerous people!
And when we are denounced for celebrating comparisons between Israel and Nazi Germany, our opponents are exhibiting proto-fascism. They need to be rounded up. More generally, everyone who disagrees with the Left is a fascist, and the fact that there are so many such people proves that fascism is in imminent danger of winning in Israel.
We need to go now and prepare for Nakba Day mourning events.

Leftist Dean at Ben Gurion University Indicted for Sexual Harassment of his Students
Leftist Dean at Ben Gurion "University" Indicted for Sexual Harassment of his Students
As Seinfeld would say, "Newman!!"
David Newman is, or at least was up unto this week, the Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities at Ben Gurion "University." The right-hand man of BGU president Rivka Carmi, Newman is a leftist liar, the close colleague and sidekick of the anti-Semitic Boycott-Israel extremist Neve Gordon, Israel's Norman Finkelstein.
Newman is a third-rate geographer who single-handedly built the department of politics at BGU into the worst anti-Israel propaganda center in the country, one in which no non-leftists or Zionists are permitted to teach, one in which students fear to contradict the anti-Israel rhetoric of the faculty. Standards in that department are so low that an international panel of experts called for closing it down altogether. Newman has long defended BDS terrorism against Israel. He crayons columns for the Jerusalem Post. He has repeatedly published lies about me.
And now Komrad Newman is facing prosecution for sexual harassment of students at BGU. The evidence is so overwhelming that even Carmi, who has always had Newman's back, could not sweep it under the carpet. This is the same Carmi who prosecuted a rightwing faculty member for sexual harassment when he forgot to close his zipper (see http://isracampus.org.il/third%20level%20pages/BGU%20-%20Rivka%20Carmi%20-%20investigates%20critic%20in%20zippergate.htm ) and who fired another faculty member from a position because he said he does not like the idea of gay couple raising children.
Here is the Haaretz report:
Ben Gurion University's Prof. David Newman faces disciplinary proceedings over sexual harassment complaint
According to the complaint, Newman, dean of the humanities and social sciences faculty, made sexually suggestive comments to a female student, embraced her and asked her to stay overnight with him.
By Yarden Skop | May 3, 2016 | 7:55 PM | 1
Ben-Gurion University has decided to begin disciplinary proceedings against one of its deans, Prof. David Newman, following a sexual harassment complaint by a student who worked under him.
Newman's position as dean of the faculty of humanities and social sciences makes him one of the university's top administrators.
Prof. Rivka Carmi, the university's president, recently received the findings of a preliminary inquiry carried out by the institution's sexual harassment complaints representative. After examining the findings, she decided to approve disciplinary proceedings against Newman, as she believed his actions had unequivocal sexual connotations.
The complainant has been a student in one of the departments where Newman teaches for the past several years. She also worked at the faculty of humanities and social sciences. She decided to file a complaint only after much hesitation, and said she did so only because the professor had serially harassed both her and some of her colleagues.
According to the complaint, Newman would frequently praise the student's looks and make suggestions to her, some of them sexual in nature. She repeatedly refused his suggestions and asked him to stop. In a few cases, he touched or embraced her.
Once, the complaint said, Newman suggested that she stay overnight with him. She refused and asked him to not repeat the offer. After that, she said, he continued harassing her, despite her refusals.
Eventually, she decided to quit her job at the faculty in order to avoid any professional contact with him.
Meanwhile, other people in the faculty decided to ask the university's sexual harassment complaints representative, Prof. Esther Priel, to look into Newman's behavior. The moment he found out Priel was looking into the matter, the complaint said, Newman tried to dissuade the student from filing her complaint.
After Priel finished her inquiry, she transferred her findings to Carmi, who decided to begin disciplinary proceedings.
Newman's attorney, Naomi Shalev Melzer, said, "Prof. Newman has no interest in proving anything or defending himself against anything in the pages of a newspaper, and he does not intend to recruit the media in order to prove his innocence. The confidential disciplinary process laid down in the academic bylaws is what will guide his steps, and he will act in accordance with its instructions."
The university said it "attributes supreme importance to eliminating sexual harassment, and it has acted and is acting in accordance with the law and with its orderly, scrupulous, process for preventing sexual harassment and examining every complaint. In its inquiry process, the university is scrupulous about preserving confidentiality, as mandated by law."
And so the Newman is about to join the Eyal Ben Ari fraternity:

Teenage girls stay in jail as Israel cracks down on settler protests

An Interview with Meretz Chairpeacenik Zehava Galon
By Steven Plaut
Good morning, Madame Chairperson, I would like to ask you about your thoughts on the events in Brussels this week.
Just call me Zehava, young man. Always glad to speak with representatives of the progressive Meretz-voting fourth estate. Clearly it was all the fault of Bibi Netanyahu, now what was the question again?
Madame Zehava, you have always claimed that Israel is the target of terrorism because it is an occupier, but Belgium is not occupying anything and in fact was twice occupied in the 20th century.
What kind of reactionary comment is that? What are you, young man, some sort of settler? A planted mole from Ad Kan?
I live in Ramat Aviv. But speaking of settlers, Belgium does not have any settlements anywhere, so why was it the victim?
I do not make judgments and one woman's terrorist is another woman's victim. But why are you asking me all these Kahanist questions?
Madame Zehava, Israel has a military conflict with the Arab world, but Belgium does not have a military conflict with anyone. It does not participate in Allied actions against ISIS in Syria and elsewhere. In fact, it barely has a military.
Call security, someone let in this reactionary who is inciting against me and suppressing my freedom of speech!
Madame Zehava, you have always insisted that the only way for Israel to make peace is to be nice. Well, the Belgians were nice and even turned over much of Brussels to Islamists.
Did Im Tirtzu put you up to this? Take your baseball hat off, I want to see if you have a yarmulka hiding under it!
Madame Zehava, Brussels is the capital of the EU and the symbol of transcendence of narrow nation-state identity, which is what you have long advocated for Israel.
Beast, inciter, you are endangering my life! What is it with you, don't you read Haaretz?
Madame Zehava, Belgium is the ultimate state for two ethnic groups living side by side in tranquility! Like in the Meretz vision for Israel. Why was it targeted?
Ok, your time is up, I have a luncheon engagement at the Shenkin Shenkin House of White Meat. Where is my damn bodyguard?
2. An Open Letter to the Belgian Prime Minister from Shimon Peres
Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
My heartfelt sympathies to you and the Belgian people for the acts of protest carried out in Brussels this week. This really is a wake-up call for us all.
You and I must really speak about how to deal with the atrocities and protests, including the attacks on Brussels, by these misunderstood activists.
Mister Prime Minister, I have a great deal of experience in dealing successfully with terrorism and this is why I wish to come to your assistance.
The first thing you must realize is that one can only make peace with one's enemies. With one's friends there is no need to make peace. There is no military solution to the problems of terrorism, and this is why you must seek a diplomatic solution. "No Justice, No Peace," as they say.
You must invite the leaders of this activist organization to the Belgian Parliament and perhaps tour the EU district. You must learn to feel their pain and understand their needs. You must offer to turn parts of Flanders over to them so that stateless Muslims can have their own state. I have no doubt the Muslim world will applaud your efforts.
You must meet the demands of the protesters in full. In addition, you must offer them Internet services and five-star tourist hotels in exchange for their promising to abandon violence. After all, that is how we in Israel, under my leadership, turned Yasir Arafat into a peace partner!
You see, military force serves no role any more. It is passé. It is archaic. Today, economic interests dominate the world and the Islamist activists of the earth will surely make peace in exchange for some profits from participating in global trade.
The fact is, you have been insufficiently sensitive in understanding the needs of Muslims. You took fundamentalist rhetoric at face value, whereas we in Israel know all this talk is empty and these people simply want peace.
Sure, Muslim fundamentalists praise Hitler and celebrate atrocities, but what is it that they REALLY want? How about sitting down with them in an effort to understand them?
You have been trying to rule over others and failed to be sensitive to their needs and aspirations. You must put your own house in order and eliminate inequality and injustice inside Wallonia, and then the terrorists will no longer target you.
The key is to build a new order in which everyone is so busy with important matters like developing tourism and making investments in high technology that they simply have no time to pursue violence.
Moreover, if you strike at the perpetrators of terrorist attacks, you will simply extend and enlarge the cycle of violence. Your bombs will no doubt injure some innocent children and civilians alongside any terrorist activists you strike, and that will simply enrage the rest of the world and lead the victims to seek revenge.
And if you refuse to negotiate with them, their leaders will be toppled and really violent fanatics will take their place. In that case, you will have lost the window of opportunity to make peace. Begin by declaring a unilateral ceasefire!
Mister Prime Minister, blessed is the peacemaker. All we are saying is give peace a chance. You will be cheered and awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of your statesmanship. Do not allow yourself to be drawn into the gutter of violence. Violence never achieves anything. History is no lesson. History is the dead past. End the cycle of violence. Show restraint. Forgo the juvenile impulse to avenge.
Mister Prime Minister, the proof is in the pudding. My own peace policies have eliminated war and bloodshed and terror from the Middle East. We no longer have terrorists to deal with in the Levant, only potential peace partners. If you follow in my footsteps, you can achieve the same lofty results.

BELGIANS REAP WHAT THEY SOWED

Two Jews and an Israeli Arab Stage Belgian Opera Celebrating Mass Murder and Suicide Terrorsm against Jews
This is not a spoof.
The opera in question is based on the classic Samson and Delilah opera by Camille Saint-Saens, except that in this case Samson will be dressed as a Palestinian when he commits suicide in order to mass murder the Philistines, who in the opera are ... (you guessed it) ... the Israelis.
This celebration of suicide bombing and genocidal mass murder is to be staged by one Omri Nizsan with his Arab sidekick from the Galilee Amir Nizar Zoabi (probably a Bedouin, based on his name). The Jewish victims of the Philistines will be dressed as Gazan Arabs and identified as such. Samson is to be represented as the first "shaheed" or mass murderer through suicide terrorism. The producers claim it is all to be a protest against "occupations," including in Palestine, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The "opera" is to be staged at the Flemish Opera House in Antwerpen, just steps away from the city's large Jewish community. The location is ideal in case any in the audience decide to apply the ideas being communicated in the show and go out to murder a lot of local Jews. The Flemish Opera House is now directed by a self-hating leftist anti-Israel Jew (born in Zurich) named Aviel Cahn. His qualifications for running an opera are that he graduated from law school. (For more, see this :
Evidently an Israeli flag is to be burned in the show.
You may want to ask Mister Cahn why he is not staging an opera celebrating the rape of Belgium by the Kaiser in World War I, in which Belgium is shown as Chamor son of Shechem, while Germany is Dina. That should amuse the Belgiums even before the fat lady sings.

Haaretz joins the Hezb'Allah
For those who thought that Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper printed in Hebrew, could not get any more treasonous, its new campaign this week is defending the Hezb'Allah. The background to this is that the entire Arab world through the Arab League, led by the Saudis, has denounced the Hezb'Allah as a terrorist group, as have all Western countries.
Well, the loyal and patriotic Arab members of the Knesset would have none of that. They denounced the Saudis and the Arab League for behaving as Israeli puppets for their denunciations of Hezb'Allah. The MKs have spent recent days saluting and defending the Hezb'Allah. Since the Hezbies are fighting alongside Asad's gangsters in Syria, the Israeli Arab Knesset Members are declaring jihad not only against Jews and Saudis, but also against Syrian Sunnis.
And that is sufficient reason for Haaretz to pick sides. As always toeing the line set by Haneen Zoabi and her fellow jihadis, Haaretz ran items this week celebrating Hezb'Allah and proclaiming that it is decidedly NOT a terrorist group:
Hezb'Allah according to Haaretz is just a defensive social welfare group, defending itself from Israeli aggression.
Up the street from me is a patch of road and sidewalks that are full of hundreds of pock marks. It is where a Hezb'Allah rocket exploded in a Haifa residential area in the war of 2006. The pocks are from the ball bearings loaded into it to create maximum civilian casualties.
As part of defensive social services of course.
If a dozen such rockets hit the Haaretz editorial offices, there would be peace in the Middle East!
2. LET'S STOP PRETENDING THAT SOCIOLOGY IS A BONA FIDE ACADEMIC DISCIPLINE. IT IS TIME TO SHUT DOWN THE SOCIOLOGY DEPARTMENTS IN ISRAEL, BECAUSE THEY ARE MARXIST ANTI-ISRAEL AGITPROP CENTERS:
Uri Ram is a professor of sociology at Ben Gurion "University" in occupied Be'er Sheba, and it is he that is leading the jihad of Israeli sociologists against Ariel University. Let's put aside the question of whether Ariel University would actually be better off without a department of sociology, in which case Marxist bashers of Israel would have to seek appointments at Ariel in other departments.
The question remains, who is this Uri Ram??
Uri Ram, a sociologist from Ben Gurion University, thinks Israel's very existence is a crime against humanity. He participates in the Stalin Day commemorations held periodically at Tel Aviv University.
The leftist Zionist David Hirsh fiercely told off Ram in Yediot Ahronot in a piece worth reading in full:
'Uri Ram's mistake is to assume that the boycott campaign is really about Israel. But it's not about Israel, stupid, nor is it about Palestine; it's about Britain. Nationalism can be an insidious temptation and it can narrow our perspective; it has narrowed Ram's perspective. He is not considering the effect or the symbolism of a campaign to exclude a significant proportion of the world's Jewish scholars from European universities; he is not thinking about how the argument to exclude is made in British public life. Ram seems only concerned with fighting an Israeli battle against the Israeli government.'
TIME TO BOYCOTT URI RAM'S INSTITUTION, BEN-GURION "UNIVERSITY"
3. QUESTION FOR HEADS OF MERETZ: IN WHICH SECTIONS OF THE KOTEL SHOULD THE TRANSGENDERED DAVEN??
4. The posting the censored "Academia" list refused to run:
The "Academia" chat list is a censored restricted chat list run by David Levy-Faur, who has indicated that it is open only to those who oppose the "Kibush" ("occupation"). This past week, the list "debated" the latest atrocity by Anat Matar, who is among the worst radical anti-Israel "academics" working against Israel at Tel Aviv University. Matar may be best remembered for celebrating Arab terrorists who murder Jews and for demanding a world boycott against the Technion. Seehttp://isracampus.org.il/…/TAU%20-%20TAU%20Donor%20calls%20… and http://isracampus.org.il/…/Editorial%20-%20Joel%20Amitai%20…. This week she is in Helsinki (with university funds?) to promote BDS terrorism against Israel.
Levy-Faur ran a long series of postings by people claiming that anyone denouncing Matar is a "McCarthyist," but refused to allow the following posting to run:
I would like to know why not a single one of the free-speech mock-absolutists here on the list has spoken out against the banning of the book "Torat Hamelekh" and the prosecution of its authors and of rabbis recommending the book. Selective book-burning is now progressive? Why has not a single absolutist defending Haneen Zonabi and her posse denounced the banning of Lehava from campuses nor the attempts to criminalize Im Tirtzu? Why have the pretend-absolutists had nothing to say about the labeling of Im Tirtzu students as "fascists"? Why not a single word condemning the fascist harassment SLAPP suits filed by leftists, including members of this list, for the purpose of suppressing freedom of speech? Why not a single expression of resentment at the denial to Prof Robert Aumann of an honorary PhD because he holds wrong opinions? Why not a single word about the policy of Ben Gurion University to prevent non-leftists from teaching political science? Why no response to the petitions demanding that author Edwin Black be prohibited from speaking on campuses in Israel, or that Colonel Pnina Sharvit-Baruch be prevented from teaching?

Bike Seat Bonkers
For those who think politics just could not get any more infantile than the US debate over Trump's petzele, just consider the choking hysteria of the media Left in Israel over a satirical Purim-season joke about one of the dumber Labor Party Knesset Members in Israel.
A right-leaning religious commentator on TV (one of the very few) wearing a red wig joked about Stav Shafir riding her bike without the seat, I guess meaning the seat pole stuck upwards into her own petzele. The leftist media in Israel are aghast. I suggest that they all count to 10 if they know how to and take some Preparation H, just in time for Adar Bet.
The leftist media moonbats in Israel and their radical feminizt bosom buddies had a fit when a religious news commentator suggested in a Purim gag that a Labor Party Knesset Member ride her bike without the bike seat.
Want to know what did NOT upset the leftist media moonbats?
It was at the conference on "culture" run by Haaretz this week, in which a flaky leftist "actor" named Ariel Bronz shoved an Israeli flag up his rear end. Bronz has a long track record of proclaiming his disgust and hatred for everything Israeli - see http://www.haaretz.co.il/gallery/theater/.premium-1.2757437 (open only on an empty stomach) - so naturally Haaretz wanted him to star at their cultural congress.
Can it be far off when he will get tenure at Ben Gurion 'University'?
2. Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper printed in Hebrew, has a new bogeyman - the "Judaizing" of Jerusalem.
This from the dervishes of paganism and Stalinism.
The journalist who wrote this piece, Uri Blau, was convicted of espionage in the Anat Kamm affair.
3. Indict the postman for biting the dog! Rare? When have leftists and Arabs ever been indicted for "incitement" in Israel?
Israel's politicized judicial system on display - finally finds some "incitement" worth prosecuting:
A Jewish Israeli is charged with incitement to racism and violence against Arabs on Facebook.
