McCully and Obama’s actions put thirty thousand Palestinian jobs at risk

I received this e-mail yesterday from Jay Sekulow the ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) Chief Counsel.

Juana,

President Obama’s diplomatic war on Israel is expanding.

First, he betrayed our greatest ally in the Middle East at the United Nations (U.N.). Second, Secretary Kerry bullied and berated Israel on the public stage. Now, the U.N. has created a blacklist of anyone who does business in Judea, Samaria, and East Jerusalem.

This blacklist of Jews and people who support Israel will be used by the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to further delegitimize Israel.

Now, President Obama may be planning a final betrayal – unilaterally recognizing a Palestinian state led by a government that funds terrorism…

I did a little research and it turns out that like previous actions by the BDS the people most affected by the blacklist will be the very people that the activists claim to support, the Palestinians.

A letter from an Arab to a Jew that you must read

The people who help change the world are often the last people we would expect. They are the ones who have views that run counter to the views of people from their own ‘culture’. They are people who look beyond what they have been taught by others and who see reasons for doing things differently. This open letter from Arab Fred Maroun to Jews who support BDS is a great example of this. Both he and the Jews he is writing too are examples of people who run a counter current to their own communities. Both have the potential to create change. I will let you decide which side has the most harmful  beliefs and aims.

Fred-Maroun-medium

Fred Maroun

Fred Maroun is a Canadian of Arab origin who lived in Lebanon until 1984, including during 10 years of civil war. Fred supports Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and he supports a liberal and democratic Middle East where all religions and nationalities, including Palestinians, can co-exist in peace with each other and with Israel, and where human rights are respected. Fred is an atheist, a social liberal, and an advocate of equal rights for LGBT people everywhere

You are Jewish, probably young and probably American, but you may be European or even Israeli, and you may not be so young any more. You have embraced the Arab battle against Zionism and you support the BDS movement, which as I demonstrated previously, aims for a single binational state in place of Israel and the Palestinian territories, and aims for the “return” of millions of Palestinian refugees who would make Israel overnight an Arab state.
Your position interests me because I am the same as you and yet I am your opposite. I am the same as you in that I am in the countercurrent of my own community, but I am the opposite of you in my ethnicity and in my allegiances in the Israel-Arab conflict. I am an Arab who supports Jewish nationalism.

More cartoons about BDS that the censors don’t want you to see

 Happening now in Jerusalem- the Yediot Aharonot conference for the war on BDS featuring the TICP Exhibition.


Happening now in Jerusalem- the Yediot Aharonot conference for the war on BDS featuring the TICP Exhibition.

In a follow up to my post ‘Ten cartoons that the censors do not want you to see,‘ here are some more cartoons. They expose some uncomfortable truths about the BDS movement and are censored by many social media and mainstream media outlets. Buzzfeed took down an entire post of the TICP that contained ten cartoons. I have reproduced all of them here because Buzzfeed, Facebook, Twitter and the main stream media need to learn that freedom of speech will not be denied.

Ten cartoons that the censors do not want you to see

TICP (The Israel Cartoon Project) is a platform for the best Israeli cartoonists and pro-Israeli cartoonists from around the world. It was created with one simple goal in mind; to tell the rest of the world the truth about Israel.
The BDS is an example of one of the many global Anti-Israeli Campaigns that Israelis and Jews face world wide. TICP was created as a creative new approach to addressing these kind of campaigns.

TICP like Israel is heavily outnumbered. This morning when I first received notification of the 10 cartoons on my Facebook feed the link to the very first cartoon on buzzfeed had been removed by buzzfeed. The only version I could find on the Internet was this very small one.

This is the TICP cartoon removed by Buzz feed almost immediately after it was posted on Facebook

This is what TICP is up against and it is why I want to spread the cartoons as far and wide as possible. Cartoonists are being silenced all over the world. In Paris they were massacred, in America they are forced to go into hiding because of death threats and on the internet entities like facebook, twitter and buzzfeed remove their cartoons.Western news organisations refuse to publish cartoons out of fear.

Don’t you just love the left-wing?

The left-wing will throw anyone under a bus if it suits their long-term political agenda…even help arrange for the torture and death of people.

In Israel two prominent Israeli left-wingers have been busted entrapping Palestinians selling land to Israelis and dobbing them in to the Palestinian Authority.

Key activists in two of Israel’s best-known left wing NGOs were caught on camera admitting that they entrapped Palestinians interested in selling land to Israelis and then reported them to the Palestinian Authority, despite knowing that these Palestinians faced near-certain torture or murder at the hands of the PA’s secret police.

The story was first reported yesterday by Uvda, a prestigious Israeli television news magazine that is the local equivalent of 60 Minutes. The two activists are Nasser Nawaja, a Palestinian and a prominent field researcher for the human rights group B’Tselem, and Ezra Nawi, a Jewish resident of Jerusalem and a key figure in the pro-Palestinian, pro-BDS group Ta’ayush. They were secretly recorded by members of another NGO, called Ad Kan, who then delivered the tape to Uvda’s reporter Omri Assenheim.

“He’s not the first to call me, he’s maybe the fourth,” Nawi bragged on tape, while speaking of a Palestinian real estate agent who contacted him with offers of land for sale to Israelis. “And right away I send their pictures and their phone numbers to the Palestinian security services.”   Read more »

A good idea, implement it here

The UK government is moving to stop local councils playing in foreign policy.

Local councils in the UK are to face new curbs on their powers to divest from or stop trading with organisations or countries they regard as unethical.

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has confirmed it is drawing up new guidelines to prevent local authorities from mounting their own “boycott and sanction” campaigns.

The directions, which will be issued early in the new year, are expected to make clear that councils’ procurement and investment policies must be consistent with UK government foreign policy.   Read more »

BDS supporter Jimmy Carter being kept alive with Israeli developed treatment programme

Jimmy Carter is a key supporter of the BDS movement (Ban, Divest and Sanctions) against Israel.

Being a left-winger though his hypocrisy knows no bounds and it has been revealed that he is being kept alive by taking new Israeli developed treatment programme using wonder drug Keytruda.

Oh the irony. Former president and vehement anti-Israel activist Jimmy Carter has begun a “breakthrough” cancer treatment invented by Israeli doctors.

Carter, who has likened Israel to an apartheid state and actively supports boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS), seems to have no qualms whatsoever reaping the benefits of Israeli innovation.

According to reports, the former president, who was diagnosed with cancer in his liver and brain, said his condition has improved since taking a new Israeli-developed cancer drug called Keytruda.    Read more »

Boris slams BDS activists as “corduroy-jacketed lefty academics”

Boris Johnson continues to speak his mind, this time attacking anti-Israeli BDS activists.

London Mayor Boris Johnson’s visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories hit a glitch Wednesday as meetings with Palestinians were called off following the mayor’s comments opposing a boycott of the Jewish state, which offended some supporters of the boycott movement.

The mayor on Tuesday dismissed those who support the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign, known by its BDS initials, as “corduroy-jacketed lefty academics,” comments which caused anger on Palestinian social media.

“I cannot think of anything more foolish” than to boycott “a country that when all is said and done is the only democracy in the region, the only place that has in my view a pluralist open society,” Johnson said.

A number of Palestinian groups then refused to meet him while he was also informed his comments had led to additional security risks if he were to visit the West Bank, Johnson’s office said.
