Geert Wilders and Rabbi Meir Kahana


Please read Paul Eidelberg's piece about Rabbi Meir Kahana below.  There are many similarities in what Rabbi Kahana hy"d and what Geert Wilders have to say. Maybe now that the world is facing ISIS we can once again revisit the teachings of Rabbi Meir Kahana based on Torah and conclude that perhaps he was judged wrongly. Rabbi Kahana was human and surely made mistakes but perhaps we need to hear his message now in order to know how to face and fight an enemy that wishes to take over the world and establish an Islamic caliphate. Perhaps Meir Kahana wasn't clear when he advocated the expulsion of Arabs he was referring only to Arabs who could not be classified as a Ger Toshav.  A Ger Toshav is a resident of Israel that accepts the Sovereignty of Israel in the Land and accepts the 7 Noahide Laws. It makes no difference what race he is from.    I am not personally proficient in Meir Kahana's writings. I can't believe Rabbi Kahana would advocate that an Arab who falls under the category of Ger Toshav is someone to expel from the Land.  If any of the readers here know otherwise please let me know. That is the impression that I have. 

Geert Wilders addresses the following points.  Is Islam a viable religion?  Should we treat Islam as we would treat other religions?  Geert Wilder differentiates between Muslims the people and Islam the ideology.  They are not the same.    Islam educates with the ideology of hate, violence, totalitarianism, and non tolerance.  One need only watch you tubes of their Imams and take note of how they fight their opponents, to recognize this to be the case.  One doesn't need Rabbi Meir Kahana nor Geert Wilder to reach this conclusion. We have all seen enough be-headings and you tubes to know that this is the case. However, armed with this knowledge will we continue to treat Islam as it were no different than other religions and award Islam the 1st Amendment Rights? 

Geert Wilder points out that cultural relativism is dangerous.  Equating Islam with other religions is cultural relativism.  Geert Wilders is not afraid to say that Judean, Christian, culture/ teachings is superior to Islamic culture and it is not racist to say so. Islam on the other hand is a racist religion.  Under Islamic rule they persecute Jews and Christians alike. Dressing immodestly, singing Happy on you tube are all justified reasons for severe punitive action. Women and Gays have no rights to speak of.  Kahana, who spoke out  against Islam was called a racist.  Perhaps Kahana's mistake was to not clearly differentiate between Muslim Arabs and the religion Islam. 

Geert Wilders is prosecuted and met with threats and violence.  He openly advocates to keep Islam out of Holland.  He says that in his country Holland today and in Europe there is much less tolerance because of the infiltration of Islam into their society.  We all know this to be a fact.  Kahana advocated the transfer and/or expulsion of Arabs from Israel.  Did Rabbi Kahana mean that all Arabs should be transferred.  I am totally convinced that this is not the case.  Surely he knew the laws of Ger Toshav whereby non Jews must be awarded rights to live with dignity in the Land. A Jew is not allowed to see someone living in the Land overcome with poverty but is required to help him.  That is Torah.  However, those Arabs who support Sharia law, educate with hate and violence, use their children as human shields, glorify suicide bombers, celebrate when innocent civilians are murdered, dig tunnels in order to infiltrate Israel to attack Israeli civilians...they have no place within Israel and surely it is those Arabs he advocated for transfer.

Geert Wilders, is the founder and leader of the "Party for Freedom" — which is currently the fourth-largest party in the Dutch parliament. Mr. Wilders is best known for his brave stance against, and truth-telling about, Islam. He is the author of Marked for Death: Islam's War Against the West and Me.

The Case of Kahane Revisited*

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Part I. Why was Kahane Vilified as a "Racist?"  

The Sages say that he who defames a man is like a murderer. Why did many of Israel's political and intellectual leaders defame Kahane?

Long before Rabbi Kahane advocated the transfer and/or expulsion of Arabs from Israel, the idea was proposed by no less than Theodor Herzl, David Ben-Gurion, and other notables.  Herzl wrote:  "We shall try to spirit the penniless (Arab) population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries while denying any employment in our own country."

Still, why is it that only Rabbi Kahane was vilified as a racist? There are several reasons.  He was a rabbi, an Orthodox rabbi. Although the racist calumny was used primarily by liberal and left-wing secularists, Reform, Conservative, and "politically correct" Orthodox rabbis joined the chorus of abuse. They shared a common interest, to diminish the power of uncompromising religious Orthodoxy, such as found among the Aguda and Shas parties. Unlike the leaders of these parties, however, Kahane was an ardent and uncompromising nationalist. He advocated the immediate incorporation of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza into the State of Israel and the expulsion of their Arab inhabitants [something beyond the purview or daring of those religious parties].

By calling Kahane a "racist," his calumniators, especially among the "Right," intimidated many thoughtful, but more cautious, critics of the government from openly supporting Kahane or taking a firm position of their own. Rabbi Kahane thus served as a convenient target for silencing "right-minded" public opinion, especially about the "West Bank" Arabs. 

It's demonstrable, however, that an increasing majority of the Jews in Israel know they cannot live in peace and equality with devotes of the Quran. What else can anyone with a stitch of intellectual integrity conclude given the appalling indoctrination of Jew-hatred in Arab school books, the collaboration of Israeli Arabs with Hezbollah, and the seditious behavior of Arab MKs? Here let us pause and ask how has Israel's Government addressed this problem?

In the mid-1980s the Knesset passed a law barring from parliamentary elections any political party that advocated any form of "racism." The intended target of the law was not Muslims whose Quran calls Jews "pigs," and "dogs." No, the target was Rabbi Kahane. Let's consider this carefully.

Kahane, who was elected to the Knesset in 1984, voted in favor of that anti-racist law. He did so because its final version excluded from the definition of racism any party that advocated laws consistent with the Halacha. This, he erroneously thought, would save him. Yet the final version of the law did not deter Likud and other Knesset members from petitioning the Supreme Court to bar Kahane's Kach Party from competing in the 1988 Knesset election. And on this issue the Likud took the leading role because it was the Likud that had the most to lose [in votes and Knesset seats] if Kahane competed in that election. Indeed, the judges [of the Supreme Cout] voted unanimously in favor of the plaintiffs. This means they condemned Rabbi Kahane as a racist! Why did they perpetrate this injustice?

One reason is this: they feared the truth so often enunciated by Kahane, the truth about the genocidal objectives of Arabs on the one hand, and about the failure of Israel's government to take proper measures to protect its Jewish citizens on the other.  

But there is something more to this story, for the elucidation of which allow me to quote from an article I wrote [for the New York-based Jewish Press]  in September 1988, before the Supreme Court was petitioned to bar the Kach Party from the November 1988 elections: 

Will Kahane be allowed to run for the 12th Knesset?  Obviously the Knesset will do everything in its power to disqualify this unSocratic gadfly. But what about Israel's Supreme Court, its High Court of Justice? Did it not rescue Kach and Kahane from the machinations of the Knesset in the 1984 elections (along with that PLO front, the Progressive List for Peace)?

The trouble is this. When Rabbi Kahane ran for the Knesset in 1984, many people thought he would fare no better than in his previous attempts to enter that political menagerie. Certainly no one regarded him as a force to be reckoned with when it came to forming a coalition government.  And so the Supreme Court could feel no qualms in applying, as it often does, principles of American constitutional law in the area of civil liberties.

But today [I went on to say] the question is not whether Kahane will get a seat in the Knesset (if he is allowed to run), but how many seats? People who did not vote for him in 1984 out of pessimistic expectations regarding his chances for election will certainly vote for him in November [1988], given the opportunity. And if only because of the intifada, Kach could become the third largest party in the Knesset. This is why I do not think the Supreme Court will come to Kahane's rescue in 1988 as it did in 1984.

Unfortunately, my prediction was correct. What is more, the same Court that barred Kach permitted the Progressive List for Peace, a pro-PLO party, to participate in the 1988 Knesset elections. The Court thereby armed the wicked and disarmed the innocent. This has been the general policy of the Government of Israel vis-à-vis its domestic enemies, a policy which may be termed "government-licensed insurrection." 

Indeed, Israeli governments have not only armed Arab terrorists, but they are paying these Arabs even while they are killing Jews! But this means that Israeli governments, especially their prime ministers, are accomplices to murder!

That politicians like Shimon Peres see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil about Israel's implacable enemies may be attributed less to their escapist mentality, than to their intellectual dishonesty and [moral] cowardice: they simply can't accept responsibility for the disaster they have inflicted on the people of Israel since Oslo. Moreover, they can't transcend the indiscriminate egalitarianism of contemporary Western democracy, which accords disloyal Arabs the same rights as loyal Jews. To this add only Israel's political system that perpetuates these poltroons in power.

That Arabs attack and murder Jews because they are Jews is conclusive evidence that these Arabs are racists in the conventional sense of the term.  But to expose this racism and to act appropriately vis-à-vis these Arabs would require more political probity and courage than these politicians can muster. Moreover, for politicians like Peres to acknowledge this relentless Arab hatred would be to admit that they had long been engaged in deception regarding the possibility of Jewish-Arab coexistence, which they (as well as Benjamin Netanyahu) constantly mouth for consumption abroad. Otherwise they themselves would be exposed to the charge of racism! 

Hence they found in Rabbi Kahane a convenient scapegoat on which to vent their cowardice and dishonesty. Whereas one professor likened Rabbi Kahane to Hitler proclaiming the Jews as the Master Race, others called him the "Khomeini" of Israel. 

In the name of democracy Rabbi Kahane, was barred from speaking at Israeli universities, some of whose professors opposed, on grounds of "academic freedom," the temporary closing down of PLO-infested Arab universities in Judea and Samaria! Still, apart from political motives, what was there about Rabbi Kahane that aroused so much vituperation?

More effectively than other rabbis, Kahane held up a mirror to self-effacing Jews: Jews embarrassed by hundreds of biblical verses like this: "You are a holy people to the Lord your God: the Lord has chosen you to be His special people, out of all the peoples that are on the face of the earth" (Deut. 7:6). No wonder reluctant members of the Chosen People were so embarrassed and enraged by Kahane. To the ignorant, such biblical verses smack of racism! The last thing these timorous and assimilated Jews want to see in Israel is the intellectual and moral cultivation of a people true to these words of the Torah: "Lo, it is a people that stands alone and does not reckon itself among the nations" (Num. 23:9).

Rabbi Kahane was proud of his Jewishness.  But he lived in a country whose ruling elites evince not a scintilla of Jewish pride. This is why they hated him. This is why they reviled him as a racist. This is why they drummed him out of the Knesset. And this is why they bear no small burden of responsibility for his murder. 

Part II.

Whatever shortcomings one may attribute to Rabbi Kahane—and even the great men of the Bible were not faultless—this intrepid rabbi was a great man and a great Jew. That's why he was banned from the Knesset.

That sinkhole of corruption is a haven for small-minded men: men without keen wits and imagination, men lacking spiritedness, men without chests. But note this about them: their personal faults aside, these politicians are emasculated by the myth of Democracy and by an inauthentic or fabricated form of Zionism.

To overcome these obstacles to Israel's spiritual redemption and thus foster the development of a national goal worthy of the name "Israel," Kahane sometimes resorted to strident rhetoric. But let's remember that the Prophets were not milquetoast toast orators ala Benjamin Netanyahu. Would we remember them were they mere politicians?

If I am not mistaken, however, it must be admitted that despite his sharp mind, Kahane overlooked what might have been his best weapon. I have in view the Achilles heel of Israel's ruling elites: namely, that Israel is not and never has been a democracy!

Since Kahane was accused of being a fascist, it would have been quite simple to turn the accusation against his detractors by showing that modern Israel is in fact a democratically elected despotism; and he could have cited the illustrious Alexis de Tocqueville, to prove it! Of course, this might also have been somewhat embarrassing to his own (brief) membership in the Knesset—not an insuperable obstacle, but one requiring great finesse to defuse.

Even rabbis are fond of saying, ala former Supreme Court President Aharon Barak, that Judaism is democratic. Is it not clear, however, to anyone with a stitch of intellectual integrity, that democracy's basic principle of one-adult-one vote would consign Israel to oblivion if the Arabs were a majority? What a commentary on the caliber of Israel's High Court of Justice! But that rabbis should genuflect to such sugary nonsense is disgraceful.

Unsurprisingly, rabbis were among Kahane's greatest enemies. Some feared that his reputation as a rabbi, however slanderous and absurd, would undermine their own prestige. This calls to mind an occasion when students at the religious Bar-Ilan University invited Kahane to speak on their campus, but this liberal university also banned him. Perhaps they feared his notoriety would alienate the University's financial benefactors in America? This is probably why American Zionist organizations deemed Kahane anathema.

One last word: The people loved Rabbi Kahane; the Establishment abhorred him. He had the pulse of the people. They knew quite well about Israel's Arab enemies, of whom Israel's ruling elites—politicians and judges, intellectuals and journalists—were fearfully silent. And the silence continues to deafen us. The unSocratic Kahane spoke the truth, and it was this, not hemlock, that killed him.

Fwd: My Letter to the New York Times (comments) and to Opera Lovers (Let's see if any of it gets published) I submitted in 4 parts due to 1500 words limit per comment

My comments to this NYT Times article:


The terrorists were not acting as individuals.  This was organized terror no different than the attackers on 9/11.  The PLF hijacked the Achille Lauro to get hostages in exchange of terrorist Samir Kuntar and 50 other Palestinian terrorists.  In 1979 Samir Kuntar with several other terrorists from Lebanon committed one of the most brutal terror attacks ever... in Nahariya.  5 innocent people were murdered among them a small child whose blood samples were found on his weapon. Samir Kundar received 5 life sentences only to be freed years later.  He was not freed after the hijacking of the Achille Lauro,  But he was freed in another prisoner exchange years later.  

This opera is deceptive.  It portrays Palestinians lovingly embracing their young children as they flee their homes in 1948 during the War of Independence.  when Israel was attacked on all sides by her enemies. This War of Independence was just, and people fleeing from their homes in times of war is legitimate when  War is being fought for ones independence and homeland.  Actually in the ZOA fact sheet "Why 'Death of Klinghoffer' is a Moral Atrocity, they write:

 "In 1948-1949, seven Arab nations invaded Israel, and along with local Arab terrorists of that era, killed over 6,000 Jews - one percent of Israel's population.  Moreover, Israeli Jews begged the Arabs to stay and live peacefully together in Israel in 1948. British police reports from the British headquarters in Haifa Israel at the time confirmed: 'Every effort is being made by the Jews to persuade the Arab populace to stay and carry on with their normal lives, to get their shops and their businesses open and to be assured that their lives and interests will be safe.'

Many Arabs did stay, and are judges, Knesset members, doctors and citizens of Israel today.

The opera also ignores the fact that the 'Arab refugee problem' was predominantly created by the Arab High Committee (AHC) and the leaders of seven neighboring Arab states (Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen).  The Arab leaders urged Arab civilians to temporarily leave Israeli areas so that the invading Arab nations' 1948-1949 war to annihilate Israel's Jews could proceed unencumbered by a local Arab civilian population."

Fact:  The PLF and the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas actually encourage their kids to become Shahids and Shaheeds and martyrs.  They glorify terrorists who murder innocent men, women and children.  They train their children from a young age to wear suicide belts.  The opera however doesn't show this evil side of the PLF terrorist. If it did, then perhaps it would be based on truth and not terrorist propaganda.  They claim that they are men of ideals.  They are liberating Palestine from the Occupiers.  

LIE!!  Israel is the indigenous people of the Land of Israel not the Palestinians.  It says so in the Bible.  It is proven from History, Archaeology as well.  The Palestinians of today come from many countries but they can not trace their lineage back to Palestine.  Jews however, CAN trace their lineage back to the 12 Tribes of Israel.  Israel is another name for Jacob.  Jacob was the son of Isaac who was the son of Abraham, the forefathers of the Jews.

The Klinghoffer children are 100% right.  The Opera Viewers have no understanding of the context.  They only hear about freedom fighters who were thrown from their Land.   But the Bible can be rewritten as far as the Librettist is concerned.  Take the scene of Hagar and Yishmael.  Totally falsified from the account in the Bible. IN THE BIBLE, G-d promises the Land to the descendants of Isaac. Not Ishmael.  It says that while Yishmael will be a great Nation, YISHMAEL will not inherit the Land.  Only Isaac will!

 If the PLF and its ideology would have any control over the opera, every female would have to come in Hi jabs.  So if money is coming from Saudi Arabia, in support of the Opera, and they have their way, you can forget about wearing any immodest dress to the Opera.  THat will exclude most of the patrons.   Also, I am sure it would be improper for women to sing in front of men. Especially immodestly dressed.   And of course if you are a Jew or an infidel be it Christian or Hindu or Kurdi or Yazidi, you of course have no right to exist let alone go to the Opera.  And all performances will have to go through the Imam who will censor any Opera, before it can be shown.  No freedom of expression here!  Just go to Saudi Arabia today and  see how many Operas are censored from performing.  Find out how many Jews attend the Opera.  How many Jews for that matter live in Saudi Arabia?  How many Jews be it journalist or contractor is permitted to enter the country for that matter.  Talk about Freedom of religion.  

The Met has only one Opera that people are protesting.  The Death of Klinghoffer. That's right Mr. Gelp.  Give your roster of Operas to Saudi Arabia and see how many of your Operas they will permit and what will be their terms.  And you have the nerve to tell our group that we are against freedom of expression!!!!!  

The PLF for sure is against freedom of expression.  

Not the Jews!  They support Operas and all the cultural centers be it in New York or Vienna or whatever country Jews live!

So, Opera Lovers, if you think what happened to Klinghoffer is not a big deal.... wait till your freedoms are taken away from you.....Sharia Law...  misogyny, beheadings, caliphate.....Hitler came into power because of the Silence.  The Mufti of Jerusalem, Arafat's mentor and the guiding light of the PLF who murdered Klinghoffer partnered with Hitler.  I believe the Gas Chambers were his contribution...  Opera lovers, the show here  is much more evil and sinister than you think.  Please get a copy of the speeches at the protest featuring Mayor Guiliani, Peter King etc.  and do some research on your own.  The murderers of Klinghoffer were not brought to justice and were free to continue to participate in more acts of terror as free men while Klinghoffer's body lies dead crying from the depths of the ocean. 

You will not get an accurate understanding of the Opera unless you understand who the PLF is and what they stand for.  And that is not information the Opera wishes you to have let alone internalize.

Jews and Gentiles (Netanyahu take note) that endorsing a Palestinian State is a sacrilege. Territory-for-peace mania fwd: Paul Eidelberg: Rudolph Guliani, Rabbi Menachem Brod, Gustav Hendrikssen, Newt Gingrich


So why is Prime Minister Netanyahu not speaking the Truth?   

Prof. Eidelberg writes:   Bibi (like Peres) wants to yield Judea and Samaria to the Arabs because this land would otherwise become an INCREASINGLY NUMEROUS POPULATION of RELIGIOUS Jews, the effect of which would drastically diminish the PERCENTAGE of secularists in the Knesset and thus terminate secular domination of Israel.

This is what the Labor and Likud parties have in common – which is why both have opposed personal or direct election of MKs. This is a subject about which almost the entire nation has been kept in ignorance since the State was founded by Socialists.


Klinghoffer protest. Video and transcript of Former Mayor Rodolph Guliani - Distortion of History. Exposes Arafat and the Palestinian Authority as a corrupt terrorist organization


 Paul Eidelberg. Netanyahu is Not Qualified to be Israel's Prime Minister? but Lev Melech B'yad Hashem. Hashem won't leave it up to a mortal to make such decisions .


Prof. Paul Eidelberg: A Gentile Professor Accuses Netanyahu: of Committing Suicide and Sacrilege

Purdue University professor of political science Lou Beres published a fascinating two-part article in the Jewish Press on September 2 and 9, 2009, which today is more relevant than ever.  The article refers to a letter dated February 15, 2000, written by Gustav Hendrikssen, a professor emeritus of Bible Studies at Sweden's Uppsala University.

What makes Hendrikssen's letter exceedingly relevant is that in June 2006, the government of Sweden effectively  renounced the Swedish heritage and officially pronounced multiculturalism as the country's "nationality."  Three years later Prime Minister Netanyahu endorsed the creation of a Palestinian state in the Land of Israel. Bearing this in mind, let us relate Hendrikssen's letter to Netanyahu's attitude toward Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, whom he regards as his "peace partner." 

Such is his high opinion of Mr. Abbas that Netanyahu would bestow on this Holocaust denier the sacred land of Judea and Samaria.  He would thus transform into reality a vision or dream he confided to the world on June 14, 2009, when he endorsed the creation of a Palestinian State in the Land of Israel.  

Although such a state may be a nightmare to many Jews, Mr. Netanyahu believes that a Palestinian state would fulfill the highest aspiration of which his intellect is capable of conceiving, and for which he wants to be remembered, namely, his having brought security to the people of Israel!   

This dream makes professor Hendrikssen's February 15, 2000, letter all the more relevant if only because the creation of a Muslim-Arab state in the Land of Israel,  courtesy of the Netanyahu Government, would be tantamount to this Government's  renunciation of the Jewish heritage, and would thus be comparable to the renunciation of the Swedish heritage by the Government of Sweden! 

Now, let us review Hendrikssen's aforementioned letter. This Gentile friend of Israel calls things by their correct names. Here is what he wrote on February 15, 2000, which could have been addressed to any of the Israeli Prime Ministers who implemented the Israel-PLO Agreement of September 13, 1993:

The State of Israel erased from the brow of the Jew the mark of the eternal wanderer. For the first time in 2000 years, the Jew was seen as an equal among equals. Now you come and with your own hands abandon the homeland of the Jewish people, a homeland which was paid for with the lives of millions of your brothers in the crematoria of Auschwitz and Treblinka. The Jewish soul you have already sold to the devil [Yasser Arafat]. Now you are busy tearing up the body, or more correctly, what has been left of it. Already you prepare for exile. In a grotesque distortion, with your own hand you print the mark of Cain on your brow – not for having murdered your brother, but because he has murdered you. The voice of your blood, not the voice of his, is what cries from the ground. 

It was thus left to a Gentile to tell the Jews Like Netanyahu that they are committing sacrilege and nation suicide at the same time.◙




Prof. Paul Eidelberg


Does the revelation of American statesman Newt Gingrich concerning the "Palestinians, specifically, his admission of their being an "invented" people, have legal implications vis-à-vis the Israel-PLO Agreement of September 13, 1993?


In question, specifically, is the legality of relinquishing of Jewish land to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), then defined as a terrorist organization under Israeli law.  In question, therefore, is whether any act committed by any Israeli prime minister involving the yielding of land to the PLO constitutes, prima facie, an act of treason


Also involved is whether previous decisions of Israel's High Court of Justice on this issue can be reviewed in the light of Mr. Gingrich's revelation.


Israel's Penal Law defines four kinds of acts as treason:


1.  acts that "impair the sovereignty" of  the  State of Israel—section 97(a);

2.  acts that "impair the integrity" of the  State of Israel—section 97(b);

3.  acts under section 99 that give assistance to an "enemy" in war against Israel, that the Law specifically states includes a terrorist organization;

4.  acts in section 100 that evince an intention or resolve to commit one of the acts prohibited by sections 97 and 99.


The question, in short, is this: Has any Israeli Prime Minister committed any of the above acts to the extent of being criminally liable if, at the time, he knew that the "Palestinian people" was an Arab hoax?








1) As a minister in the Sharon Government, Netanyahu voted for the expulsion of 8,000 Jews from Gaza, which his own father called a CRIME. This expulsion was opposed by Israel's highest defense and intelligence officials (Yaalon, Farkash, and Dichter) in testimony to the Knesset. This is why Gaza is now Hamastan, and Bibi doesn't dare eliminate Hamas because this will damage the standing of the Palestinian Authority, Bibi's fictitious "peace partner," to which

2) Bibi has repeatedly opposed abrogation of Oslo despite thousands of Jewish casualties.

3) For reasons discussed below, Bibi endorsed the creation of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria, the spiritual and strategic heartland of the Jewish people.

4) Bibi has failed to enforce the security arrangements of the Wye Memorandum of October 1998, which he, himself, negotiated – a failure resulting from his timidity, and which has led to the murder of an untold number Jews for which he has not been held accountable.

5) Bibi is largely responsible for the abandonment of Hebron – Israel's second-most important historic city.

6) Bibi has released hundreds of Arab terrorists, some with blood on their hands.

7) Bibi kowtowed to the mindless John Kerry by his latest release of Arab terrorists, behavior that Caroline Glick openly denounced as "COWARDLY."

8) Bibi fired Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon for publicly opposing this betrayal of the nation's dead and wounded.

9) Bibi is wedded to Oslo, hence to the discredited policy of "land for peace."

10) An astute foreign journalist rightly called Bibi a disciple of Shimon Peres, but almost no one knows the secret reason, namely this: Bibi (like Peres) wants to yield Judea and Samaria to the Arabs because this land would otherwise become an INCREASINGLY NUMEROUS POPULATION of RELIGIOUS Jews, the effect of which would drastically diminish the PERCENTAGE of secularists in the Knesset and thus terminate secular domination of Israel.

This is what the Labor and Likud parties have in common – which is why both have opposed personal or direct election of MKs. This is a subject about which almost the entire nation has been kept in ignorance since the State was founded by Socialists. The latter knew how to design a democratic electoral system, Proportional Representation with a low electoral threshold, which preludes the formation of a majority party government, and thereby effectively disempowers traditional Jews who have always been to the Right of the Government.☼


I never cease to be astonished by the arrogance of Israeli Prime Ministers whose territory-for-peace mania suggests that they own the Land of Israel and can dispose of parts to whomever they wish. Of course they count on the pliancy of cabinet ministers and on the pusillanimity of Israel's religious parties, which are more fearful of Washington than of God.  Still, the arrogance of these Prime Ministers appalls me.

The latest Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, would have us believe that he must adhere to the disastrous Oslo or Israel-PLO Agreement of 1993 despite its having been violated thousands of times by the PLO and at the cost of 15 thousand Jewish casualties! He deceives none but fools. Despite the bloodshed and treachery of the Palestinian Authority, he still regards that terrorist organization as a "negotiating partner" with which he is eager to conclude the "final status" agreement – as though, with a signature on a sheet of paper, he can nullify 1,400 years of Arab-Islam butchery. What unmitigated arrogance! And then there are Bibi's apologists.   They are not appalled by his arrogance.  He is simply a victim of circumstances. He's doing the best he can, given American pressure. Some admit that Bibi is not the stuff of which heroes are made, but we have "NO ALTERNATIVE."   End of story.

But who is more dangerous to Israel, an overt leftist like Tzippi Livni, who deceives no one about her idiocy and ideological identity, or a clever, covert leftist like Benjamin Netanyahu, who talks the 'right' talk but walks the left's walk by yielding Jewish land to Israel's enemy, as he did in Hebron and in the 1998 Wye Memorandum? By the way, Bibi never enforced the security arrangements prescribed in that Memorandum, which cost the lives and limbs of hundreds of Jews, for which Bibi has not been held accountable.  

Indeed, he even had the chutzpah to endorse the creation of Palestinian state without Knesset or public debate! Had Livni committed this act of moral and political treason, there would have been non-stop public outrage, if not open rebellion. With Bibi, however, such treachery evoked Bibi is not only a Teflon Prime Minister, but an accomplished anesthesiologist! And this is why he is more dangerous than Livni.◙
