Israel

This is what happens when you go dog on your mates

Like NZ did to Fiji when we turned or backs on our mates, the US has done the same to Israel.

When you are spurned you find better friends. Fiji tuned north, and now Israel has cut a deal with Russia and is improving relations with Sunni states in the region, while Obama looks on.

There is perhaps only one thing harder for the American mind to process than the fact that President Obama has been a terrible foreign policy president, and that is that Bibi Netanyahu is an extraordinarily successful Israeli Prime Minister. In Asia, in Africa, in Latin America, Israel’s diplomacy is moving from strength to strength. Virtually every Arab and Middle Eastern leader thinks that Bibi is smarter and stronger than President Obama, and as American prestige across the Middle East has waned under Obama, Israel’s prestige — even among people who hate it — has grown. Bibi’s reset with Russia, unlike Obama’s, actually worked. His pivot to Asia has been more successful than Obama’s. He has had far more success building bridges to Sunni Muslims than President Obama, and both Russia and Iran take Bibi and his red lines much more seriously than they take Obama’s expostulations and pious hopes.

BDS Movement one of the many faces of terrorism

Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked hit the nail on the head when she said that criticism of Israel is legitimate. Liberals can criticise Israel because they do not like what they think it does, just as I can criticise Islamic countries because of what I think that they do. The BDS movement, however, doesn’t just criticise, it actively works to undermine Israels’s right to exist as a country and a people.

Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked branded the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement a form of “terrorism”, in remarks made yesterday.

Speaking at a Jewish National Fund (JNF) conference in New York, the hardline right-wing minister compared the BDS campaign to tunnels under the Gaza border fence.

World Vision suspends the Gaza office…what happened to nothing to see here, all above board?

mcrobertshamasworldvisionelhalabi-777x437

Shalom.Kiwi reports:

In August we reported on the breaking news that the director of World Vision in Gaza, Mohammed El-Halabi (pictured with Mike McRoberts), was arrested by Israel for allegedly diverting tens of millions of dollars of aid and donations to Hamas terror.

When the allegations broke, World Vision announced it was “shocked” and said it has “no reason to believe” they are true but will “carefully review any evidence presented to us” and “take appropriate action based on that evidence”. World Vision has now suspended operations in Gaza and 120 staff have been laid off.

This follows Israel freezing World Vision bank accounts in Jerusalem. Other governments have also taken the allegations seriously – Australia and Germany halted funding to World Vision, with representatives from both countries making strong statements:

World Vision massively damages the trust necessary for aid work for the people in Gaza … Hamas is a terrorist organization, which should not be financed with taxpayer funds.” – Volker Beck, German Green Party MP

Any diversion of the generous support of the Australian and international community for military or terrorist purposes by Hamas is to be deplored and can only harm the Palestinian people.” – Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade   Read more »

Are you a Gaza-loving-Greenie? Then it’s time for school

Shalom.Kiwi posts about the nine things that Marama Davidson needs to learn or understand before she makes her “stand”.

Green Party MP, Marama Davidson, is soon to depart on the “women’s peace boat” in an attempt to breach Israel’s legal maritime blockade of Gaza and raise awareness of the Palestinian cause. However, press releases from the Green Party and Ms Davidson seem to lack awareness of some fundamental facts, so we thought we would help them become better acquainted with the truth.

1. Jews are indigenous to Israel

In the Green Party press statement, Ms Davidson said she is joining the boat “as an indigenous woman” to support the women of Gaza. However she appears unaware of the Jewish people’s 3,000 year historical connection with the land of Israel, which expulsion and dispersal failed to destroy. Since the most recent expulsion by the Romans 2,000 years ago, faithful Jews have prayed three times daily, and annually on special festivals for a return to their maunga (sacred mountains), their whenua (ancestral land). This is the longing of an indigenous people.

The Jewish state of Israel is considered by many to be the role model for indigenous peoplesseeking a return to their ancient homelands. While most were dispersed to foreign lands, Israel hasalways retained a small number of Jews, keeping the fires burning (ahi kaa) for an eventual return to land over which they had mana whenua. Jews, like many other indigenous peoples, were under occupation, a minority in their own land for many centuries. The revitalisation of the indigenous language (Hebrew) is an inspiration to indigenous language advocates worldwide, including Måori.

If there is a people group that knows and understands discrimination, persecution, dispossession, expulsion, occupation and genocide, it is the Jewish people. The re-establishment of the Jewish state was an existential necessity that was internationally recognised and ultimately granted by the United Nations. In the face of an alarming rise in anti-Semitism worldwide, the state of Israel as the Jewish homeland, continues to be a necessity.

Hamas are restricting the Press despite the MSM’s Pro-Palestine bias

Hamas really are an ungrateful lot. Foreign journalists could not be more cooperative.  Already predisposed to seeing Palestine as the victim and Israel as the aggressor the articles on the conflict seem to be always biased in Hamas’s favour. When Hamas store weapons and fire rockets at Israel from inside hospitals, schools, and mosques the press dutifully report that the terrible Israelis attacked hospitals, schools, and mosques which  are not legitimate military targets.  When Hamas damages with rockets an Israeli power station  that supplies power to both Israel and Palestine, the media dutifully report that the terrible Israelis have cut off power to Palestine.

Despite this Palestine friendly coverage, Hamas is restricting the work of foreign journalists in the Gaza Strip.

In France it is now the turn of the ” Sunday people “

In France it is now the Christians’ turn to be targeted  for attacks by Islamists. This is not a new phenomenon.There is actually an Arabic Islamist slogan that says “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”In other words, first Muslims attack Jews; then when the Jews are gone, they attack Christians. We have watched it happen over and over again in the Middle East and now it is happening in Europe. Many French Jews have fled France and moved to Israel. 8000 of them left France for Israel last year which is a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe. Once they are all gone the attacks on Christians will increase to fill the void they have left.

The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant. The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty.

…Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him.

…The reaction of the French bishops was also significant. Speaking in their name, Georges Pontier, chairman of the Conference of Bishops of France…asked Muslims living in France to come to church to “share the grief of Christians.” He added that Muslims are welcome in France.

The decision to deliver a message of brotherhood is consistent with the spirit of Christianity. The wish to welcome Muslims to France but to leave completely aside that the assassins of Father Jacques Hamel acted in the name of Islam and jihad seem signs of willful blindness, severely pathological denial, and a resigned, suicidal acceptance of what is coming.

The assassins of Father Jacques Hamel are what is coming.

…Father Jacques Hamel was murdered on July 26, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.
The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. Itteaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France. But it erroneously describes Islam as a religion that brought “justice, dignity and tolerance” wherever it reigned.

Seventh-grade students spend the first month of the school year learning what Islamic civilization brought to the world in science, architecture, philosophy and wealth. A few weeks later, they have to memorize texts explaining that the Church committed countless atrocious crimes…The Holocaust is still in the curriculum, but is taught less and less; teachers who dare to speak of it face aggressive remarks from Muslim students.

…French mainstream media do their best to hide the truth. Abdel Malik Petitjean and Adel Kermiche are described as troubled and depressed young people who slipped “inexplicably” towards barbarity. Their actions are widely presented as having nothing to do with Islam.
