Haaretz finds some new McCarthyism

 

 

 

1.    98% of Israeli Jews are strongly behind the operations in Gaza and most of the dissidence in Israel comes from people who think that Netanyahu wimped out and did not go far enough to finish the job.   Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper published in Hebrew, managed to maintain its anti-Israel pro-Hamas line throughout recent weeks.  To remind you, Haaretz has a 6% market share among the quarter of Israelis who actually read newspapers and I suspect that 2/3 of Haaretz subscribers get it for the business supplement Marker, not for the daily doses of treason.

 

    In any case, the anti-democratic Left in Israel, lead by Haaretz, are all whining because the Israeli on the street has no patience to listen to their treason these days.  In fact, when the communists and their friends hold pro-Hamas rallies, "right-wingers" come out and harass them and call them names and counter-demonstrate, clearly acts of anti-democratic fascism! Mister and Mrs. Israeli do not believe that Israel bombed in Gaza to be mean and because Jews are racist and that the Gaza invasion was "disproportionate," unless you mean by that too mild.

 

   A good example of the desperation of the Israeli radical Left is in today's Haaretz editorial.  It concerns a decision to rein in the radical anti-Israel foreign-funded NGO B'Tselem, which pretends to be a human rights watchdog, although one that has never defended any human rights for Jews.  After getting smacked down in a recent Supreme Court ruling, the Israeli government just ruled that national service youths may not do their service as interns with B'Tselem.  National service is for religious women, some Arabs, and some others, as an alternative to (and sometimes supplement to) military service, and usually involves things like working in hospitals or with low-income families in Israel's periphery zones.  (One of my sons did so BEFORE his regular army service.)  The Left wants these people to be able to do political agitprop as national service in B'Tselem and similar outfits and indeed this was permitted until now.  But only for far-leftist anti-Israel groups.   No one could do national service, for example, with the Temple Mount lobby.  But the government just nixed this.  Haaretz is livid.  McCarthyism, it bellows:

Israel's witch hunt against leftist organizations is McCarthyism in action

B'Tselem does not act against the state or its army, on the contrary: It tries to maintain its moral image, therefore fulfilling an important mission.

| Aug. 15, 2014 | 2:04 AM

The witch hunt against leftist and civil-rights organizations in Israel is picking up speed just as Operation Protective Edge winds down. This week the director of the National Service Administration, Sar-Shalom Jerbi, informed the director of B'Tselem, Haggai Elad, that he was disqualifying B'Tselem as a receiving organization for civilian national service volunteers. Gili Cohen reported yesterday on the Haaretz website that in explaining his decision, Jerbi said the organization, whose full name is B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, acts against the state and the Israel Defense Forces.

"I feel obligated to exercise my authority and discontinue state assistance to an organization that acts against the state and its soldiers, who sacrifice their lives with supreme heroism in order to ensure the welfare and security of all Israeli citizens," Jerbi wrote in his letter to B'Tselem……

Jerbi's decision is scandalous, and Pensioner Affairs Minister Uri Orbach (Habayit Hayehudi), who oversees the National Service Administration, would do well do reject it. B'Tselem is a badge of honor for the State of Israel, and the national service volunteers who work for it are contributing far more to Israel than the volunteers of Efrat, the anti-abortion association, for example, whose service Jerbi has not disqualified.

On B'Tselem court case:  http://www.haaretz.com/news/national/.premium-1.610477

Last year a Knesset bill to require that anti-Israel NGOs like B'Tselem disclose their sources of financing failed to pass because Netanyahu wimped out on it and on us.

 

2.  One of the more amusing developments is Nasrallah, the Islamofascist terrorist head of the Hezb'Allah, whining about the growing power of ISIS. Hezb'Allah is a Shi'ite Islamofascist terrorist group that is chummy with the Assads. ISIS is a Sunni Islamofascist terrorist group that enjoys beheading Shi'ites before breakfast.  Nasrallah wants the world to wake up to the ISIS threat.  I look forward to ISIS catching up with  Nasrallah and turning him into Purina.

4.  The Israeli Mongrel Left has a new "cause." Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper published in Hebrew, claims a wedding was supposed to take place between an Arab man and a Jewish woman, but the couple received a lot of insulting mail and phone calls and in the end they supposedly had to hire guards for the wedding because "rightwingers" plan to hold a protest at it. Other Mongrel Left web sites also picked up the story, including 972mag, an anti-Israel picayune web site financed by foreign anti-Semites. I do not know if the Haaretz story has any connection to facts, real people and real events. Haaretz stories about Jewish intolerance rarely do. 

But there is one thing worth emphasizing.

While Haaretz soils its nappies in disgust at the supposed intolerance of Jews regarding the supposedly planned wedding, there is one little point Haaretz overlooks. Even Haaretz was unable to find a single case of a Jewish man marrying an Arab bride.  Want to know why not?  Cause any such prospective brides were murdered long ago in honor killings by their family.  SO just who exactly are the intolerant ones in this story?

6.  A Plautian spoof not written by Plaut:  http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/ronn-torossian/a-call-for-restraint-against-isis/

 

 

7.   So the Brits are threatening to cut off arms to Israel because some Gazan civilians were hurt when Israel shot back.  Now imagine that its allies had threatened Britain during the blitz to withhold arms shipments from the UK unless Britain could guarantee that no German civilians would be hurt when Britain bombed Germany in retaliation!

Academic Standards at Hebrew University on Display: Hebrew University Sociologist Promotes S&M

1.  Academic Standards at Hebrew University on Display: Hebrew University Sociologist Promotes S&M

Eva Illouz is an ultra-leftist sociologist from the Hebrew University and currently serves as president of Bezalel College. You may recall herimplementing a thought control enforcement mechanism while there:http://isracampus.org.il/third%20level%20pages/other%20-%20Betzalel%20-%20Thought%20Police.htm . Here is Ben Dror Yemini commenting on her:http://www.i24news.tv/en/opinion/140213-the-enslaved-professor 

Well, now her latest pathbreaking scientific work appears here: Explaining 'Fifty Shades': How Bondage Solves the Problem of Modern Love - SPIEGEL ONLINE where she celebrates Sadomasochism and "Bondage".  http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/eva-illouz-explains-how-fifty-shades-of-grey-solves-problems-of-love-a-843644.html

Here is an excerpt: 

Have you ever had sadomasochistic fantasies? If you are like me, not only have you never had any, but you even view sadomasochism as an exotic and very distant land. Assuming that most people are boringly similar to me, then it is a puzzle how "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- a romance novel in which BDSM (short for Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism) is the central plot motif -- became a phenomenal global success....
Moreover, I would argue that the sadomasochist relationship in general is a highly plausible solution to the complicated and uncertain labors of love for a number of reasons.
By definition, a BDSM relationship contains both pain and pleasure and thus neutralizes the ambivalence of relationships that alternate between pain and pleasure.
One of the greatest difficulties of modern relationships is relinquishing one's autonomy to another because, in doing that, our sense of dignity is always at stake. The BDSM contract does the logically and psychologically impossible: It makes one willingly give up one's will and autonomy to another. In that sense, it solves the problem of relinquishing one's autonomy.
The equality that has been promoted by 40 years of feminism demands ongoing, ceaseless negotiation. The BDSM contract stops the endless bargaining by setting up and freezing caricatured and exaggerated roles and positions. In fact, BDSM makes inequality acceptable because it is consensual, contractual and pleasurable.
Finally, sadomasochism can take place only between two people who fully trust each other. The dominant partner stops hurting the submissive partner as soon as he or she says the code word. In that sense, BDSM is the very performance of the scarcest commodity: trust.
Against this context, it is our ordinary heterosexual relationships that have become queer indeed: complicated and elusive and impossible to predict and control. They demand an enormous sophistication in our capacity to play many roles, endlessly negotiate boundaries and make sense of our own and the other's ambivalence. If conventional relationships have become queer, then the romance between Grey and Steele suggests that BDSM actually holds the promise of erasing that queerness by giving us access to erotic ecstasy without the anxiety of ambivalence and uncertainty.

2.   Here's an idea. You know how all the leftist Hitlerjugend and their friends have been complaining that Hamas rockets fired from Gaza into Israel just "do not count"? After all, they chirp, these rockets are harmless, hardly kill anyone, are little more than symbolic protests against "occupation." That is why Israel is the aggressor when it shoots back. 
So once Israel finishes re-taking the Gaza Strip, annihilating the Hamas and Jihadis, and once it captures all the remaining "harmless" Hamas rockets there, I say we take all these harmless Hamas rockets and fire them at Ramallah, Jenin, and Tul Karem. If anyone complains, we will just quote all those leftists who insist that these are innocent toy rockets that really do not do any harm!!

3.  The number of Gazans killed by Israel is far lower than the number of rockets fired into Israel by the savages. This is clearly disproportionate.

4.  Anyone know if the rumor is true that the department of politics at Ben Gurion University plans to merge with ISIS?

5.  As far as we know, the ISIS barbarians in Iraq have not murdered any American citizens. Yet here we have the US air force bombing the bejeebers out of ISIS. So where are all the street urchins and campus Hitlerjugend? Wjy no screams about the Americans perpetrating genocide? Where are all the editorials in the liberal media demanding a proportionate air strike? Where are the numbers pogromchiki who argue that if the US kills more ISIS terrorists than the number of Americans killed by ISIS, then the US is a fascist colonialist aggressor and war criminal?

6.  The Far Left, including Meretz and the Commies, was planning to hold a pro-Hamas rally Saturday night in Tel Aviv. The police cancelled their permit. Not because they are traitors but because Tel Aviv was on alert for Hamas rockets incoming. The Left urged its people to show up anyway. The ultra-left anti-Israel pro-jihad web site 972mag, funded by foreign anti-Semites, claims 500 people showed up. Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper published in Hebrew, claims 200 showed up. Since Haaretz always adds a zero (and sometimes two zeros) to the numbers of leftist protesters in its reports, I guess we can assume that 20 showed up. All, no doubt, members of the communist party.

Important new Voice in the Anti-War Coalition for Peace that Needs to be Heard

http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/australian-muslim-leader-also-kill-left-wing-anti-war-jews/

Australian Muslim Leader: Also Kill Left-Wing Anti-War Jews

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On August 5, 2014 


If you want honesty from Muslim settlers in the West, you really can only get it from Hizb-ut-Tahrir. They will actually tell you what they're thinking.

The media won't.

Here's how the Australian media covered a Hizb-ut-Tahrir pro-Hamas rally.

A group of about 100 protesters have rallied outside the Egyptian consulate in Sydney to call for the defence of Gaza and the destruction of Israel. The group including men, women and children gathered on Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills, on Saturday afternoon, waving placards calling for Muslims to support Gaza.

How touching. Here's the real genocidal reality.

Now here's actual video from that event courtesy of Memri.

"This nation has been and will continue to be a nation of Jihad until Judgement Day."

"There is no god but Allah… and Jihad is a duty decreed by Allah"

"Palestine cannot contain the Muslims and the Jews."

"The Jews should not be in Palestine and they will not remain there."

"Any Jew living in Palestine is an illegitimate occupier. He is a target of Jihad…. this holds true for all the Jews in Palestine."

"It makes no difference whether a Jew is pro-peace or pro-war, whether right-wing or left-wing… and serves as a target for the Jihad of the Islamic nation."

"Allah Akbar."

"Khaybbar, Khaybar, oh Jews, the Army of Mohammed will return."

"Oh Jews, nobody will give you peace– not the Arab rulers, not the world's rulers, not the UN Security Council, not the Palestinian Authority."

"The Jews will not thrive and will not live in safety because they are the slayers of the prophets… whenever the Jews thrive, corruption abounds… corruption in everything that is associated with the Jews."

"Who will set the world free from the Israelites… that mission will be accomplished by none other than you Muslims."

"The ember of Jihad against the Jews will continue to burn. The struggle and the Jihad will continue until the worlds of Allah come true: "Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews."

That hateful Hadith is also contained in the Hamas charter.

Finally a sanitized version of this call for genocide is delivered in English by a fellow who demands that Jews return to the lands they immigrated from, but has no intention of doing the same.

And no it's not Zionism, it's the same old Anti-Semitism that Jews endured for over a thousand years under the oppressive colonial rule of Islamic Supremacism.

Israeli Feminizts Seek to Castrate A.B. Yehoshua

 

 

 

 

1.   Well, Bibi Netanyahu decided to help Jews appreciate the mourning of the Ninth of Av by ordering the IDF to withdraw from Gaza even as the savages were firing rockets into Israel and as the Hamas leadership remains untouched in its Fuhrersbunker.

 

But I do have one piece of good news to report.  A.B. is about to be skinned alive by the Feminizts.

 

As you know, A.B. Yehoshua is the clueless dean of the Israeli Literary Left, a fellow who has never heard of a Hamas demand he does not wish to endorse.   Well, it seems A.B. has suddenly managed to turn a large portion of his toady sycophants into raging Bushido feminizts.   A.B. gave an interview over the past weekend in which he endorsed motherhood and denounced the decision by career women not to have children.   A woman who decides she does not want children suffers from a handicap, says A.B.  Her decision is egotistic, anti-nature, a form of digging in to her (career) role.

 

Faster than you could burn a bra, the radical feminizts went after poor A.B.  He has upset them before in his literary work (see http://kb.osu.edu/dspace/bitstream/handle/1811/58686/HAR_v8_071.pdf?sequence=1 ).  Now he is denounced at length for his daring to challenge the correct political line by a feminizt opiner in Haaretz.  When Haaretz is being used to skewer Yehoshua (am I allowed to use that word or is it too male chauvinistic?), then can the Messiah be far off?

 

 

2.    The Axis of Evil - the American Left and the Jihad:  http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/180759/double-bind?utm_source=tabletmagazinelist&utm_campaign=a0eb78b475-Tuesday_August_5_20148_5_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c308bf8edb-a0eb78b475-206545683

 

 

3.  How come all the good leaders are in Canada? No fair! http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/65057

 

 

4.   So help us out here. When the Hamas savages shoot thousands of rockets at Israel, just how many Palestinians is Israel allowed to kill to stop the rockets? And if Israel exceeds that number, your solution is for Israel to turn the other cheek and sit about passively as the rockets continue? And if there does not exist a single weapons system in the world that can be used against an enemy with absolute certainty that no civilians get hurt from its use, then do I understand your solution as demanding that Israel relinquish all use of force and arms to stop Hamas rockets? In other words, other than simply sitting back and doing nothing while the Hamas shoots thousands of rockets at Jewish children, what exactly is it that you are proposing that Israel do? (And do not say capitulate, because if you do, we have a drone with your name on it!).

 

 

5.  The quasi-communist "rabbi" Henry Siegman is denouncing Israel for the "slaughter of the innocents." The anti-Semites and jihadis have lapped up his words. Anyone know if the rumor is true that Henry is changing his last name to Siegheilman?

Bib plucks defeat out of the jaws of victory

SO let us get this straight. After losing almost a hundred Israeli lives, after 3000 or so rockets have been fired at Israeli civilians, Bibi thinks that the time is ripe to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory, to order the IDF to withdraw unilaterally from the Gaza Strip and stand by in readiness at the border. So the savages can rebuild their attack tunnels and import some new Iranian rockets. We have that clear now?

Why the Soldier was Kidnapped

 

 

    Wondering what the outbreak of celebration among the savages was all about when they captured an Israeli soldier on Friday?  Why so much happiness over the capture, as compared with - say - the few dozen deaths of Israeli soldiers?

 

   The answer of course is that the savages believe a single kidnapped IDF soldier can buy for them the release of a thousand genocidal murderers from Israeli prisons.   And why do they believe this?  Because Bibi Netanyahu and his predecessors chose to empty out Israeli prisons of hundreds, and then a thousand genocidal murderers in the series of "exchange" deals it struck with the terrorists.

 

   The decision to release a thousand murderers to buy back Gilad Shalit was the stupidest act of folly in Jewish history.  The golden calf was in comparison a mere fraternity prank.  The kidnapping Friday of the soldier was a direct consequence of Netanyahu's cowardice in that "exchange."  Netanyahu was telling the terrorists that they can get what they want by kidnapping Israelis.   It was more important for Netanyahu to have his Kodak moment with Shalit than to prevent new kidnappings. 

 

     In a previous "exchange," Israel released hundreds of murderer terrorists, including the one who kidnapped Air Force navigator Ron Arad, in order to buy back the corpses of three Israeli soldiers murdered by the Hezb'Allah plus an Israeli drug smuggler criminal the Hezb'Allah had captured.   The precedent of paying with jailed terrorists to buy back corpses led directly to the murders of the three yeshiva teenagers, the murders that ignited the current war.

 

   Bibi Netanyahu and his Likud gang are directly guilty of causing the capture of the soldier on Friday and the kidnappings of the three teenagers.  For decades the Israeli government has rewarded terrorism by releasing mass murderers as tribute to them.

The leftist Israeli Attorney General Arrests a Terrorist

 

 

 

   The internet is filled with the ugliest and most craven anti-Semitic catcalls, including leftist web sites operating out of Israel.  The far-leftist anti-Israel 972mag.com, which is financed by overseas anti-Semites, has been filled with talkback chants like Hitler was Right and We need to Murder all the Jews.

 

   And the Israeli Attorney General's office is suddenly interested in prosecuting "incitement."   But it is ONLY interesting in prosecuting Jews who express opinions the Attorney General deems in poor taste or "racist" regarding Arabs.  The number of Israeli Arabs who have been arrested for expressing glee at the death of Israeli soldiers, the kidnapping of soldiers, or the kidnapping of the three yeshiva teenagers is exactly zero.   The number of tenured leftists who have been arrested for justifying and cheering Hamas rocket firings at Israel is the same number.

 

    A 22 year old bartender from Beer Sheba, Lior Cohen, was just arrested and interrogated because of comments on his Facebook page.  He wrote "An Arab who is a Real Man is an Arab in the Grave."  Clearly in poor taste.  But grounds for arrest?   Cohen was arrested and held in jail under Israel's law against racism and terrorism.   That is right, TERRORISM!  You know, unlike people like Haneen Zoabi and the Op-Ed columnists at Haaretz or the professors of political science at Ben Gurion University. 

 

   In the end, the judge decided to be merciful and released Cohen from prison, with the stipulation that he is prohibited from using his computer for 30 days.  None of the countless leftist professors who promote BDS terrorism against Israel, denounce Israel as a war criminal fascist country, and cheer Hamas have ever been ordered to stop using their computers for 30 days.

 

     Haaretz reports that the police are being flooded with hundreds of complaints against "rightwingers" - no doubt filed by leftists - demanding that they be arrested and interrogated for exercising their freedom of speech, which the left calls "incitement."   The police have opened 200 investigations.   They interrogated several suspects who evidently are not Meretz voters.

 

    The number of leftists who have been arrested for treason since the start of Operation Protective Edge is exactly zero.


    The Left meanwhile is flooding the internet with whines about the threat to freedom of speech in Israel!  (On the part of non-leftists who dare to exercise it!)

 

 

2.  Kerry's Peace Proposal:  http://www.teapartytribune.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Half-Way.jpg 


Who is to blame?

1.   For decades the Israeli Left has been reciting 10 times a day and repeating in unison that "occupation" is the source of all evil, that "occupation" was undermining the moral fabric of Israeli society, that "occupation" was driving the "Palestinians" to violence and alienating the world. 
 
We now know two things with certainty:  It is not Israeli occupation of Palestinians that does all those things the Left warns about but rather removal of Israeli occupation of "Palestinians" does so.  Second, the Israeli Left is directly responsible and culpable for everything that has happened in Gaza over the past month.  It is guilty of causing ALL of the deaths of Israelis and Palestinians because of its campaign to end "occupation" at all costs.  When the Left and its captive media imposed this vision on Israel, 3000 rockets from Gaza on the Jews were the direct result!


2.  The following message was sent to the University of Haifa faculty by me yesterday:

   Earlier today a memo was sent to the entire campus community by the Rector about the need to fight against the campaign to boycott Israeli academic institutions,  The Rector names Prof. Gabi Weimann as the Haifa University liaison for fighting the boycott.

   Allow me to suggest that the most effective way to fight the boycott is to deal with the campaign of anti-Israel boycotters operating right under the nose of the Rector and the rest of us here at the University.  I refer the the malicious "Alef List," an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic chat list  for the "academic Left" that is controlled by Avraham Oz and which operates under the auspices of the University on the University's computers.   The list proliferates anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate propaganda, while pro-Israel opinion is barred and censored from the list (in the name of academic freedom of course).  It goes without saying that it is a major promoter of BDS boycotts against Israel and its universities.  A long list of examples and more information on the "Alef List" can be found here:

The new Leftist Assault against Bar Ilan University

 

 

 

1.  A few days ago I posted a sarcastic spoof piece about how the Allies were providing free electricity to the Third Reich so that German civilians would not suffer, and how FDR refused to condition the electricity on the Germans stopping their V-2 rocket attacks on London or paying for the power.  I also posted it on the Israeli social science professors list.   This is a highly-censored leftist chat list and I suspect they allowed the piece to post because they thought it was for real.  Since then I have gotten quite a few responses from professors of social science on that list who believed the story was for real.  I thought this is as good an indication as you can find of the state of academic standards in Israel.

 

 

2.    Israel's fascist Left is suddenly all upset about the suppression of academic freedom at Bar Ilan University.  What got them upset was a group of students who denounced a professor there who used an announcement about the date for an exam to insert his own leftist ideological agenda in the message an impose it upon his students.  The professor, one Hanoch Sheinman, sent out the message about the exam date but added wishes that his message "finds you in a safe place and that you, your families and those dear to you are not among the hundreds of people that were killed, the thousands wounded, or the tens of thousands whose homes were destroyed."    The students, all of whom either serve in the military or have friends at the front and almost all of whom know soldiers killed or wounded, resented the snide attempt by the professor to equate the suffering of Israeli victims of the Hamas with the Gazans targeted in retaliation.  We now know that of the "hundreds of people that were killed" in Gaza, at least 80% have been armed terrorists.  The professor can stand on the street corner and express his opinions but inserting them into a message about the exam to his students is political harassment.

 

   The students filed a complaint against the prof with the Dean of Students at Bar Ilan.  The dean issued a statement condemning the behavior of Sheinman.  Two other universities warned students and faculty against using campus facilities to spread "unrestrained" discourse, meaning treasonous anti-Israel propaganda.

 

    The Tenured Left and Haaretz have been having a fit.   Haaretz denounces Bar Ilan University today in an editorial for "McCarthyism" in the Sheinman affair.  See the editorial here:  http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/1.608117 .  Let us note that this is the same Haaretz that has been demanding in recent days that Bar Ilan professor Mordecai Kedar be silenced and fired (http://www.haaretz.com/news/national/.premium-1.606542 ).   This is the same Haaretz that has operated a McCarthyist campaign against Bar Ilan University for years, denouncing it for being responsible for the murder of Yitzhak Rabin because Yigal Amir studied there.   Curiously, Haaretz has never gotten around to reporting that Haggai Amir, the convicted accomplice of his brother Yigal Amir, is today a far-leftist who supports Haneen Zoabi and Palestinian statehood.  This is the same Haaretz that has led the lobby demanding that rabbis who write books it regards as "racist" be jailed for this and their books burnt.

 

   Meanwhile, some protesters held a protest against leftist journalist Amnon Abramovich outside the latter's home.  Some members of the Tenured Left are demanding that these protesters be arrested and jailed.  No academic freedom for THEM!

 

 

3.   Here is another "assault" against "academic freedom" that has the Left soiling its nappies:   http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/183550#.U9nqo6Pb7ZQ

Eldad to Israeli Students: Boycott Leftist Professors

Former MK Professor Aryeh Eldad has a message for Isreali students: Just say no to leftist professors

By Yaakov Levi

 

Former MK Professor Aryeh Eldad, head of the Professors for a Strong Israel organization, called on Israeli students to "vote with their feet" and reject leftist professors who have come out against the IDF's mission in Gaza. In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Eldad suggested that students check the names of professors before signing up for courses, and boycott the courses taught by leftist professors.

"They must be rejected and ejected from the family of academia," Eldad said. "If I could, I would paper the land with posters and take out ads listing the names of the professors and teachers who advocate for Hamas."

He is unable to do so himself, Eldad said, but he had a suggestion for students who wanted to avoid such teachers. "Just don't sign up for their courses," he said.

"Israeli academia has a long tradition of 'self-hate,'" said Eldad. "We have this all year long, but it becomes much more annoying and dangerous during periods of war and tension. More people see it, and more families whose sons are fighting and dying on the front are hurt." By avoiding their courses, students will be sending the professors – and their employers, the universities – a clear message, that such activity is unacceptable.

Eldad believes that Israel needs to remain in Gaza on a permanent basis. "Without a Jewish presence in Gaza the IDF will not be able to operate there," he said. "The real breaking point in security for the south leading to this war was the disengagement. In order to restore security we must return to the point when there was security  before the disengagement, when Israelis lived in Gush Katif. Anything less will not enable us to fight the tunnels and the missiles," he added.

 

4.  About those Hamas supporters who whine that Israel harms Palestinian children:

 

Wiesenthal Center Urges 47-Member UN Human Rights Council to Investigate Hamas Over the Deaths of 160 Palestinian Children Forced to Work on Terror Tunnels

 

 

 

5.  Many of those Gaza rim villages in Israel that have borne the brunt of Hamas atrocities have been far-leftist kibbutzim.    These spent decades promoting the "two-state solution" and "self-determination" for the "Palestinians."  The Guernica of Israel has been the town of Sderot and it hosts Sapir College, another bastion of leftism.  Sapir has held Solidarity with the Hamas rallies.  The terror assault tunnels that have been uncovered were designed to allow hundreds of terrorists to infiltrate these areas in a flash and carry out mass murders of hundreds of Jewish children and other civilians.  The leftists living near Gaza have been mugged by reality.  They are leading the demands that the Hamas be exterminated.

   http://www.haaretz.com/news/national/.premium-1.607893

Bastions of the left, kibbutzim are on front lines of war

Despite all the changes they've been through, kibbutzim still account for a high share of combat soldiers and are big champions of mutual aid.

To believe the Israeli left, it is encountering intellectual persecution that threatens to degenerate into political assassination. As proof, the left cites the dismissal of comedian Orna Banai from her job as a cruise liner presenter, and the recent decision by Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate MK Haneen Zoabi (an investigation that's subsequently been dropped).

These self-serving premonitions of martyrdom are, of course, relayed by the leftist village tom-toms to like-minded sympathizers abroad. Now, in addition to "war crimes," they can charge Israel with stifling dissent.

It is also an act of self-promotion, because our intellectual shahids can congratulate themselves on maintaining their principles against the mob and they will undoubtedly reap rewards, invitations and perhaps film festival honors for playing the righteous in Sodom.

To round out this tragic soap opera, the left has even provided us with a prince of darkness – a heavy (literally and figuratively) who calls himself 'Shadow' – and provided him with international notoriety. If this goes on, we could even see a revival of the 1930s radio series that began with the immortal line, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"

Admittedly our "shadowed" Israeli left is not exactly flavor of the month because the war in Gaza has further demolished two of its favorite arguments: Gaza, or for that matter an independent Palestine, can never pose a threat to Israeli security; and if we are – however improbably – threatened, we would enjoy international backing to hit back hard. This was the logic behind Oslo and the disengagement/expulsion from Gaza and we are currently paying the wages of that folly.

However, to talk of a crackdown on the left is ludicrous. Meretz chair Zahava Gal-On and other left-wing talking heads remain welcome guests on our talk shows to spout the same nostrums. They are free to rave about the moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, even though we saw Abbas Jr. and Abbas II in Arabic dismissing their father's talk about renouncing claims to pre-1967 Israel as window-dressing intended for gullible Israelis.

Israel can compare favorably with any country fighting a battle against an enemy that promises to destroy it and makes good on its threats by launching attacks on the homeland.

When Britain fought desperately on in World War II, it rounded up the fascist Oswald Mosley and his supporters; even the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were deported to the West Indies because of their known Nazi sympathies. The German American Bund, let alone Japanese Americans, were roughly treated in the United States.

Going back further in American history, President Abraham Lincoln, who viewed the Civil War as a test of whether the United States would hold together, suspended habeas corpus for the antiwar Copperheads.

The Israeli left faces no similar privations or restrictions, and has received deferential treatment when we recall political crackdowns against Israeli nationalists.

During the disengagement from Gaza, the Israeli police engaged in short-circuiting political dissent – frequently by arbitrary measures. The book was thrown at demonstrators whose tactics were far more restrained than those witnessed at other demonstrations.

Our current defense minister, Moshe Ya'alon, was sacked as chief of staff for daring to privately question the wisdom of the measure and replaced by the more pliable Dan Halutz. Opponents of the disengagement – who have since been vindicated – were then pilloried by a vicious government-sponsored press campaign.

They were charged in the press with planning armed resistance to the Gaza expulsion or hurling acid at soldiers tasked with their eviction. These charges were proven baseless, but no apology was ever offered.

After the Rabin assassination, a veritable witch hunt was launched for "Rabin's assassins." Despite the Shamgar commission's findings that Yigal Amir acted alone, the hunt was on for would-be inciters.

The only way to secure immunity from the charge of being Amir's accomplice was to recant opposition to Oslo. Those now trumpeting freedom of dissent didn't intervene but actually fanned the flames. So they should at least have the decency not to lecture us on intellectual freedom and political intimidation.

Zoabi represents the failure of the compromise, forged by former MK Geula Cohen, which would have barred politicians who either did not subscribe to democratic principles or undermined Israel's identity as a Jewish state.

The left was happy to use the agreement to block Meir Kahane's reelection to the Knesset, but they reneged on their part of the deal when it came to Arab MKs such as Azmi Bishara or Ms. Zoabi. The real question is not why Zoabi is being prosecuted now, but why she wasn't prosecuted long ago.

It is particularly rich of Ms. Banai to complain of persecution. When Arafat launched his suicide bombers at us, Banai knew whom to blame: the settlers. "Because of them we are dying like flies," she moaned.

She promised never to appear in a settlement. After the Jewish residents of Gaza were herded into buses so the bulldozers could destroy their life's work nine years ago, Banai piled on by accusing them of abandoning their pets.

Now, for however briefly, the usual boycotters have become the boycotted – and they find this situation unacceptable. Believe me, I don't want any harm to befall leftists because – to paraphrase De Gaulle on Sartre – they too are Israel.

I can only hope that the reversal of roles that the left has encountered may engender a more respectful political debate within Israel.

Memo to FDR from 1944 discovered:

We just discovered the following memo that was sent to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the summer of 1944 by a group of Germanists in the State Department, endorsed by the Professors for Peace and by the German-American Friendship Alliance (whose slogan is that 'Germans and Americans refuse to be Enemies'):
:
Dear Mister President: We want to emphasize that the very best way to resolve the war with Nazi Germany is to provide free electricity to the population of the Reich, lest innocent civilians suffer from a lack of electric power. To that end we would like you to instruct all US forces to help ensure that German citizens, whether Nazi party members or not, are not deprived of electric power. There is also no reason to insist that these German consumers of power pay for it or refrain from using the electricity to manufacture V-2 rockets to shoot at London. That would just prolongue the hostilities.
Patriotically yours,
The Team

3.   (from 2002)  The lost chapters of Joshua 

The Book of Joshua's Missing Chapters by Steven Plaut 

We have discovered that there were actually several chapters in the Biblical book of Joshua that were lost for millennia and only recently rediscovered. We bring them to you here for the first time: 

And after conquering many of the lands of the Canaanites, Joshua came to speak with the Lord and said unto him: Oh Lord we seem to be having failure to communicate with the Children of Israel. And the Lord asked, tell me My son, what seems to be the problem? And Joshua said to the Lord, well things were going just fine at first. We were kicking Canaanite butt right and left and they were everywhere in flight. Victory was in sight. But then the Israelites sent a delegation to them with a proposal for a change in plans. We wish to reach a compromise with the Canaanites, they told me. Yep, I know it is hard to believe, but these Children of Israel demanded that we stop the campaign to conquer our promised land and instead seek a compromise by splitting the Land of Israel fifty-fifty with the savages. They are demanding that we offer the Canaanites half of the country, including the territories holding most of the holy sites and shrines from the period of the Patriarchs. 

You are not just yanking my chain here Joshua, asks the Lord. 

I am serious, oh Lord. But it gets worse. These people are suggesting we let the Canaanites organize their own militias and army, right here in Jericho, Shechem and Hebron. They claim these militias will be used to suppress Canaanite radicals and terrorists. They then want the Levites to collect a tithe of 10% of the income and property of the Israelites and hand it to the Canaanites. They claim they want to try to swap land for peace with the pagans. And they even want to let the Canaanites set up altars of their own in Jerusalem after we conquer it. 

Now hold your heifers here Joshua. I thought we had an understanding. I thought Moses had made it clear to these people that their job is to impose their sovereignty over the entire area I promised them! They have no right to "compromise" with My Land. They have no permission to trade "land for peace". Their job is to exercise the military option and to achieve unchallenged victory. The only compromise they are authorized to offer the Canaanites is to demand their unconditional surrender and maybe allow them to hold commuting day jobs as cutters of wood and drawers of water. 

Hey, I am on Your side, oh Lord, answers Joshua. But what can I do? The tribesmen claim they held an election and the "peace camp" won. 

We will see about that, says the Lord. If these stiff-necked dingbats refuse to see reason, if they refuse to take the initiative and impose their sovereignty over the entire territories and lands that have been granted by Me to them, then We will have to take measures that leave them with no choice but to declare war. We will have to create the conditions under which they have no choice but to attack the Canaanites, to use military force, and to achieve victory. 

You´re the Boss, says Joshua. You show the way. And the days pass and the Canaanites begin to snipe at the passing Israelites with blowguns and crossbows. Ah You clever One, says Joshua to the Lord. Surely, this will bring them to their senses. Surely now they will realize there can be no territorial compromise with the pagans and that the only way to deal with them is through military initiative and conquest. 

But lo, the days go by and the tribal chiefs simply expand their dialogue and talks with the Canaanite terrorist leaders.  It is not working oh Lord, says Joshua. We will see about that, responds the Almighty.  In the coming days the Canaanites escalate their conflict. They start sending epistle bombs consisting of parchment wrapped around explosives to homes of the Israelites. They invade several villages of Israelites and burn down their homes. They fire catapults randomly into Israelite civilian homes. 

Any progress yet Joshua?, asks the Lord. Alas, answers Joshua, they are responding to these new atrocities by demanding that we turn more territory over to the savages and give them more chariots and weapons, as well. Time to turn up the heat some more, says the Lord. This will surely put the fight into them and fire in their bellies. In the coming days the Canaanites send out gangs of assassins to roam the roads and fields of the Israelites and to murder them. But, Joshua explains, even this is not producing the needed change. The Israelites suggest that we give up own own flags and psalms and instead adopt those that are less offensive to Canaanite sensitivities. They want to teach Canaanite poetry and philosophy in their schools. Israelite universities teach about the tragedy that has befallen the Canaanites from the Israelite migration across the Jordan, and several teachers in Israelite universities erect Canaanite flags and banners with images of Baal and Moloch on them. 

You don´t seriously mean to tell Me that the morons are still trying to make peace with the murdering barbarians?, the Lord asks Joshua. Maybe you should have given them some more common sense and IQ points back in the Sinai wanderings, suggests Joshua.  No more Mister Nice Guy, answers the Almighty. 

The Canaanites escalate further. They place large bombs aboard the public transit chariots of the Israelites. They murder Israelite children. They blow up Israelite universities and nightclubs. They murder Israelites engaged in the Passover sacrifice. They scream that they will annihilate the Israelites. They demand that pagan armies from all over the world join in the campaign of annihilation. They dress up their own people, including their children, with explosives beneath their cloaks and place camel bombs in the Israelite marketplaces. The campaign of atrocities makes the Plagues against Egypt seem like children´s games. The carnage continues, all as part of the Divine program to force the Israelites to take up arms, to impose their will on the savages, to defeat them militarily and to exercise sovereignty. 

The lands of Israel became the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The Divine reeducation of the Israelites proceeds with no stopping. They will be goaded into military victory over the Canaanites or My name is not oh you know what, comes a voice from the sky. Months go by and turn into years. The carnage toll rises. Not a single family of Israelites remains untouched. And when things could not possibly go on even a day longer, the Israelite tribe leaders at last come up with a plan of action and present it to Joshua. 

Ok Son of Nun, they tell Joshua, we have decided on a unilateral humanitarian cease-fire combined with goodwill measures towards the Canaanites plus an offer to recognize an independent Canaanite state with Mount Moriah as its Capital plus talks at the White Pyramid overseas, and in the meantime allow the Canaanites to operate their diplomatic altars in Jerusalem, while we disarm ourselves further to show we seek peace and we will issue an apologize for any Canaanites that might have been killed by our troops while shooting back at attacking Amalekite hordes.

Gaza op exposing radical left's disgrace 

Op-ed: The picture of 'good' and 'evil' in this war is so clear, that the left's radical margins are forced to create an artificial symmetry between Israeli soldiers and Hamas and Jihad fighters.
Oz Almog 

Violence sometimes has cultural and ideological reasons, which are detached from a concrete conflict between two sides.

 

It should be noted, for example, that the Nazis hated the Jews and established an annihilation mechanism not because of some religious or national dispute, but because the Jews were part of a wider goal: Destroying the non-Aryan Western culture.

 

 

In other words, the Holocaust was the result of a distorted ideological code, rather than a conflict which could be settled through negotiations and compromises.

 

Because the radical left refuses to seeHamas' war as a cultural war, it tends to ignore the ideological and organizational common denominator between the Gazan fundamentalism and the global fundamentalism.

 

According to the radical left's perception, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad are local terror organizations with local goals – in other words, national – rather than an extension of a global network of evil. Their war is perceived as part of a legitimate struggle for national liberation.

 

And then came Operation Protective Edge, and for the very first time threw a glaring spotlight on the radical left's delusion. It suddenly became more difficult to cut corners, to bash Israel and to disregard the sensibility and morality of its leadership, its army and most of its citizens.

 

Unfortunately for the radical left, Hamas also launched the missile offensive, and in fact started the conflict even earlier with the kidnapping and murder of the Israeli teens; Hamas also revealed a huge weapon arsenal it has been piling up in order to murder masses of Israelis, while wasting billions of shekels which were supposed to be used to improve the standard of living in Gaza; Hamas also demonstrated its irrational considerations to the point of insanity and suicide – because, after all, it's clear that it's impossible to defeat Israel with missiles, and it's even clearer that the response will take a heavy toll on the aggressor; and Hamas also showed that its conditions for restoring the calm fail to include a single section about peace negotiations.

 

But the most painful thing for the radical left is seeing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, its bitter enemy, acting moderately and with national and moral responsibility, accepting every international call for a ceasefire and postponing the ground invasion to the very last minute, while firmly facing his internal critics.

 

The difficult dissonance the dogmatic left has found itself in produces the "but" arguments: Hamas is indeed misbehaving – but the occupying and jailing Israel is to blame for that; they really are a bit violent – but why refer to them as a "terror state"?; we are allowed to defend ourselves – but why kill so many innocent people?; You are only good with wars – but what about peace?; today you attack – but what will happen tomorrow?; you can kill enemies – but why gloat?; an airstrike is okay – but why add a ground operation?; Hamas really does hate Jews – but what about all the moderate Palestinians?

 

The fact that the picture of the "good" and "evil" in this war is so clear – why even the Egyptian president condemned Hamas – makes it particularly difficult for the left's radical margins.

 

They are so distressed in light of the reality striking them in the face, that they are forced to create an artificial symmetry between us and the Hamas and Jihad fighters. Israeli pilots are likened to the missile launchers and terror attacks from Gazan and are slammed with the defamatory slogans "the bad ones join the Air Force" and "the murderers join the Air Force."

 

The radical left's response in this war exposes the lack of intellectual integrity it is characterized by. The integrity to recognize the cultural reality in the Middle East and the nature of the forces operating in the arena.

 

The radical left is refusing to acknowledge its mistake, not just because it is generally difficult for people – mainly people filled with ideological enthusiasm and hatred – to admit their mistakes, but because it knows that this war exposes its moral disgrace.
