Honenu Tevet תשע"ג December 2012


Honenu's 24 hour hot line receives many calls all the time from people who need aid and defence. While all around us, there are those who attempt to weaken Israel, Honenu stands for truth and justice.
The following are just a few of the cases Honenu has worked on recently. See more examples on the Honenu website.

Oz Zion Dismantled

On Friday Dec. 28, two hours before the Sabbath, troops arrived at the Oz Zion outpost in Binyamin, near Bet El, in an attempt to dismantle it. Hundreds of guests had joined the residents for a very special spiritual weekend. Calls were made to Knesset members and other people of influence to prevent the desecration of the Sabbath and the forces left. A 15 year old yeshiva high school student was arrested and accused of attacking a policeman although the boy and his friends said that the opposite is true. He was released on Saturday night. Although police requested that the youth be put under house arrest, he was allowed to return to his Yeshiva on condition that he stay in the Yeshiva for two days and keep away from Oz Zion for five days. The buildings of Oz Zion were destroyed on Saturday night.



This week a plea bargain was reached with a group originally accused of espionage. The events began slightly over one year ago when the Israeli Defense Minister announced his intent to destroy several "illegal neighborhoods" including Mitzpeh Yitzhar of Yitzhar and Ramat Gilad, an outpost adjacent to Karnei Shomron. During the days before the planned destruction, right-wing activists in the areas scheduled for destruction, organized a group to relay information about the location of soldiers who intended to carry out the destruction. Several days later the GSS and the Israeli Police raided an apartment in Kiryat Moshe, Jerusalem which was suspected of being the headquarters for the flow of information regarding movement of the army and for planning demonstrations against the destruction. Several right-wing activists who were in the apartment were detained. Children aged 4-5 were present in the apartment at the time. Two other people who were thought to be a part of the group, were detained later. The charges against them were changed from espionage to "collecting information of military value" . For the duration of a year the five defendants have been under house arrest with severe restrictions, among them a long term ban on usage of telephone, internet or any other means of communication. Some of the restrictions had been eased over the course of the the year. Honenu, which has assisted the defendants with legal counsel since the beginning of the case, states; "We have mixed feelings about the outcome of the case. On one hand we are pleased that the showcase trial conducted against our clients has ended with the Attorney General's office dropping most of the charges, but on the other hand this has been a mark of disgrace for the Israeli legal system which for the first time has made use against Jews of the "collecting information of military value" clause dating from the era of the British Mandate." Some of the group will spend several months in prison and others will do community service.

Crime or Persecution

On Tuesday, Dec. 25, policemen from Hebron detained two Jewish youths near the Avraham Aveinu neighborhood in Hebron. The two were taken to the Hebron police station where they were told that they were accused of spilling cola out of their car onto an Arab pedestrian. The two detainees denied the chatges. They were released several hours later.

Old City Suspects

Honenu has been involved with many cases of people, dressed in similar religious garb, being searched as they walked through the Old City. Some of these have been residents of hilltops and Judean and Samarian communities and some have been students at local yeshivas. Police claimed that these pedestrians were carrying knives. In one case, the person's bag was searched twice. In the first search of his bag, nothing was found. When he was brought into the police statiion his bag was searched again and a knife was found. He immediately denied that the knife was his and said that it was planted in his bag. He further pointed out that it was not found during the first search of his bag and stated that his fingerprints would not be found on the knife since he had never touched it. More and more people are reporting similar stories of searches and in many cases knives that are unfamiliar to those being searched are being found.

Please make a tax - deductible donation so that Honenu can fight for fair judicial process in Israel.

THE BLOOD CONNECTION! PLO = Nazi Germany, 2 State Solution = Final Solution. Benjamin Netanyahu = Sir Herbert Samuel? Jewish Press promotes those that promote 2 State Solutnion on front page. Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.

Why are Jews suicidal??????
"John Kerry is an excellent choice to be the next Secretary of State. Kerry would be well positioned to play a leading role should President Obama move to revive peace efforts aimed at achieving a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. " according to J Street blog 
We know that J Street alligns themselves with Israel's enemies, those that support BDS etc. Et tu Jewish Press?
Can't the Jewish Press feature Rep. Joe Walsh on the Front Page of the Jewish Press and not leftist American Jew Ron Kampeas?   Isn't the Jewish Press a Pro Israel Newspaper????? 
Ron Kampeas of JTA was chosen for this weeks front page of  the Jewish Press with a post headlined . "Pro-Israel Community Warms to Prospect of John Kerry As Secretary of State" 
No, this is not the first time Ron Kampeas of JTA is featured on the front page of the Jewish Press with a leftist agenda.  A great supporter of President Obama and the 2 State solution, Ron Kampeas empowers our enemies and assaults Israel's friends. 
Case in point:  Rep. Joe Walsh published an op-ed in the The Washington Times in May 2012 in which he called for the US and Israel to abandon the two-state solution.
Caroline Glick writes:
"FOR HIS unstinting support for Israel, Walsh has been subject to an unbridled assault by leftist American Jews. Ron Kampeas from JTA, for instance, attacked Walsh, accusing him of being no different than Israel's enemies who seek to destroy Israel by ending its ability to define itself as a Jewish state through what they refer to as the "one-state solution."  from Column One: Let's embrace our friends By CAROLINE B. GLICK 05/17/2012 23:17
My question is what does the Jewish Press gain by featuring Ron Kampeas on PAGE 1 who in my observation, unlike Rep. Walsh, is no different than Israel's enemies who seek to destroy Israel by ending its ability to define itself as a Jewish state?  I have no doubt that Ron Kampeas has choice labels for myself  as well who sees the PLO for what they are and would sooner label me as radical and extreme than label the PLO as radical and extreme and a terror organization which in fact  they are.
Do facts count when it comes to media that is biased?  Let me add that Netanyahu and the Likud party are guilty parties as well in perpetuating the myth that a 2 State solution is a viable option and  apparently Netanyahu welcomes the nomination, and called Kerry a friend and a supporter of Israel. OY VEY. 
 ...And all the MK's who fall under the Likud umbrella are tainted by association..... But I will save further comment on Israel's Election 2013 for a future post.
I expect better from the Jewish Press, Netanyahu and Likud Ministers and I hope you do too. Please write a letter to the Editors and Likud Ministers. You can get their emails above in the To: list.
The Torah is quite clear.  Israel is the Promised Land.  Promised by G-d for the Seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for the purpose of keeping the Torah and her Commandments.  Israel is the Biblical Homeland for Jewish people and Noahides who accept Jewish Sovereignty. 
Likud members might dismiss this post and pigeon hole me with the "religious sector" and apparently from their perspective representing the Torah position is not broad enough to incorporate all Jews as well as the Likud platform...
Please read "Media Bias and the Erosion of First Amendment Ideals" an excellent post by Matthew M. Hausman
Please read the following if you haven't already.  What does it take to wake up the sleepers?  Thank you for your attention!
Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini --- Yasser Arafat

To understand the EVIL AND DECEPTIONS of Yasser Arafat, we must look briefly at the situation in pre-Israel Palestine during the British Mandate. The moral of this story is that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.

Sir Herbert Samuel, Palestine High Commissioner At the end of the First World War, Britain was given the mandate to administer Palestine. The British government appointed Sir Herbert Samuel, a British Jew, as Palestine High Commissioner. Sir Herbert Samuel arrived in Palestine on July 1, 1920. Unfortunately, history tells us that Sir Herbert was a weak administrator who was all too ready to compromise for what he thought was for the sake of peace. Haj Amin al-Husseini. Husseini

Perhaps because he was a Jew, and not wanting to appear partial, Sir Herbert appeased the extremist, nationalistic Arab minority led by a violent, fanatical zealot named Haj Amin al-Husseini. Husseini was from a prominent Arab Palestinian family who were fervent Anti-Zionists. The British had earlier imprisoned Husseini for instigating an Arab attack against Jews who were praying at the Western Wall.

A crisis that would have lasting consequences occurred in 1921 when the existing Arab Mufti (religious leader) died. Due to influence by anti-Zionist British officials on his staff, Sir Herbert released Husseini from prison and appointed him as the new Mufti, even elevating him to the title of Grand Mufti. He became the religious and political leader of the Arabs. Husseini was only in his mid-twenties at this time, but he already had a history of violence against Jews.

Husseini was the first proponent of militant, Arab Palestinian nationalism. He was an all or nothing terrorist who was determined to drive out or destroy the Jews or be destroyed himself, regardless of how many lives were wasted in the process. Once he was in power, he began a campaign of terror and intimidation against anyone opposed to his rule and policies. He not only killed Jews but also Arabs who did not support his campaign of violence. Husseini was not willing to negotiate or make any kind of compromise for the sake of peace.

Once again we turn to Winston Churchill who tried to reason with the Arabs with the Western understanding of "give and take" so that all parties would have at least some of their demands satisfied. Churchill noted that the Arabs refused to negotiate but came to the "peace talks" thinking they could give nothing while expecting the other side to make huge concessions with no guarantees that the concessions would lead to peace. He was baffled hat the Arabs were unwilling to offer even one percent in order to get ninety-nine percent. They had no consideration of the claims and needs of others, but only their own.

Many moderate Arabs fled Palestine out of fear of Husseini. He raised the stakes of the Arab-Jewish conflict and took control away from the more moderate Arabs who desired to live in peace with the Jews. Mainly because of him, attempts to establish peaceful relations between Arabs and Jews came to an end. He plunged the Arab world into a political and religious "jihad" against the Jewish people that set the course for the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East.

1929 Hebron victims of Arab rioting Husseini instigated bloody riots against the Jews in 1920-1921 and again in 1929. In 1929, Husseini concocted a story that the Jews praying at the Western Wall were taking over the Al-Aqsua Mosque. Sound familiar? He massacred the Jews at the Wall. This triggered a riot by Arabs in Hebron. On the Sabbath of August 24, Arabs murdered sixty-seven Jewish men, women and children in Hebron and destroyed the synagogues. This violent action brought an end to a Jewish presence in Hebron that had been there for thousands of years.

He saw Hitler's "final solution to the Jewish problem" as the answer to his own desire to eliminate the presence of Jews in Palestine. Husseini imported Nazi influence into Palestine and used Nazi funds to finance his terrorist activities. He openly supported Hitler and Mussolini and led a revolt against the British in 1936-1939. He was forced to flee to Iraq where he cooperated with the Nazis in a failed coup attempt against the British. He then fled to Germany where, in November of 1941, he was greeted with open arms by Hitler himself.

Mufti Haj Amin al-HusseiniMufti Haj Amin al-Husseini Husseini was known as the "Arab Fuhrer." He used his program on Radio Berlin to exhort the Arabs in the Middle East to murder the Jews in a holy war that pleased Allah. While at the same time, he prodded the Nazis to further zeal in completing their "final solution to the Jewish problem." In one instance, he learned that Adolf Eichman intended to swap thousands of Jewish children for German POWs. His protest forced Eichman to cancel the swap, resulting in the children being sent to death camps in Poland. On another occasion, Husseini traveled to Bosnia where he recruited Bosnian Moslems for the SS. They slaughtered ninety percent of Bosnia's Jews. The only condition Husseini set for assisting the Nazis was that, after they won the war, they would murder all the Jews in Palestine. After the war was over, Husseini fled to Cairo where he was given a heroes welcome.

During the war, Arab Nazi parties were founded throughout the Middle East. The most influential one was "Young Egypt" which was established in 1933. Young Egypt imitated the Nazi party in their ideology, slogans, processionals, and anti-Semitic actions. When the war was over, a member of Young Egypt named Gamal Abdul Nasser led the coup in 1952 that overthrew the Egyptian government. He made Egypt a safe haven for Nazi war criminals and, in 1964, he established the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).

Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa al-Husseini ... later known as Yasser ArafatEventually the leadership of the PLO was taken over by a man named Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa al-Husseini. Al-Husseini was a nephew and great admirer of Uncle Haj Amin al-Husseini. He was born in Cairo in 1929 and grew up in the Gaza strip. His mother, Hamida, was a cousin of the Grand Mufti. Due to internal Arab strife, his father Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa was forced to flee Gaza where the family took refuge in Egypt.

Al-Husseini's cousin is Faisal al-Husseini who is the grandson of Haj Amin al-Husseini and the PLO representative in Jerusalem who has directed attacks on the Jews praying at the Western Wall. When Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa al-Husseini enrolled at the University of Cairo in 1951, he decided to conceal his true identity and registered under the name "Yasser Arafat."

Yes, Uncle Haj, the Arab Fuhrer himself, passed his legacy of hatred of Jews to his nephew Yasser Arafat who has passed the same legacy of hatred to the next generation of young Arabs. Through the PLO, he seeks to further the Arab Nazi goal of eliminating the Jews from the Land. However, like his notorious uncle, Yasser Arafat will fail, and after he has passed from the scene, the Israeli flag will still be flying high over Jerusalem, the eternal, undivided capital of Israel.

Chuck Hagel Obama's nominee to serve as Secretary of Defense? WHAT DOES HE STAND FOR?


Dear Knesset Members, Rabbanim, Media and Activist List amv"sh
Let us examine carefully what Chuck Hagel believes:
In His Own Words: Sen. Chuck Hagel on the Middle East
The following is a link of Senator Hagel's wide-ranging remarks to Israel Policy Forum (IPF) on December 4, 2008.
Here are some excerpts.
... "When I listen to Peter tonight talk about justice, about hope, about possibilities—that is not reserved for Catholics or Jews or Hindus or Muslims. That is what we all aspire to: justice, equality, hope, better world. I have referenced that as the common denominators of the human condition. Most of you in this room have been to many places in the world, and I suspect that most you would find it hard to believe that somehow one religion or one region has a corner on those virtues. That somehow Christians are more noble than Jews, or Jews more noble than Muslims. I don't think so. I think all people love their children and their families, and want a better world."
Jews more noble than Muslims? Yes or NO? You decide after watching these you tubes!
  • Pillar of Defense:   ISRAEL vs HAMAS and the different ways they fight a war.  Must See You Tube.  Who is more noble?

  • Samaria (West Bank): The Heart of Israel  (What is the difference in the education of Jews in Samaria and the Palestinians?)  Who is more noble?
 In 1990, when Bethlehem was under full Israeli control, it was 60% Christian. Since the PA took over control of the town, that Christian population has gone down to around 15% or less, even as its total population has increased!

Who is responsible? well,
it isn't the Jews. There must be another set of people there who are forcing the Christians out.

And this other group has been
openly stealing Christian-owned land under the watchful eye of Mahmoud Abbas' government, with no known arrests or court cases to combat the phenomenon.

In an interesting historical note, in 1967, before the first Christmas after the Six Day War, Abbas' Fatah party
explicitly threatened any Christian pilgrims who wanted to visit the city.
Senator Hagel continues....
"It is clearly in the interest of America, and clearly in the interest of the Middle East and the world that this issue be brought to a higher ground of confidence and trust to move to a different plateau of finally trying to solve the problem in a relevant and realistic way.(my emphasis) I noted the topics of the three breakout sessions tonight- all quite relevant to your topic and your focus here because all three, in my opinion, are part of the comprehensive, strategic context and approach that must be employed in a coherent way to deal with getting where we all or almost all of us agree we need to get to- and that is a two state solution.(my emphasis) And if we almost all agree with that, and the leaders of the free world: the US, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, most all the Arab nations, Russia China, P5 plus 1, NATO, most of the UN all agree that that is the objective, that is the point, then why can't we get there? Why do we keep going backwards? "
We all know that Senator Hagel conclusion is that the 2 State Solution is the answer and that there is a consensus.. 
BUT  Why is Israel under Netanyahu included in this list of "leaders of the free world" who agree that a 2 State Solution is the objective??????? FOR SHAME 
Senator Hagel continues....
,,,"Now I am not an expert on anything, and I'm certainly not an expert on the Middle East. Most of the people in this room, especially those that were on the panels tonight know a lot more about this issue than I do. But I do listen. I do observe. I am somewhat informed. That informs me that when the people of the Middle East themselves tell me that this issue has to be dealt with or there will there will not be a resolution to any other issue in the Middle East."
I am glad that Senator Hagel admits that he is not an expert and is open to listening to others.  If he really was interested in reality and wanted to know the facts he can start here by listening to Pat Condell!
Chavrei Knesset Yekarim:  A 2 State Solution is the same as THE FINAL SOLUTION!

G-d's Covenant with Israel can not be Annulled! 
FATAH, HAMAS, NAZISM all want the same for Israel. DESTRUCTION and ANNIHILATION! The GRAND MUFTI  Haj Amin al-Husseini of Jerusalem,  uncle and mentor of the founding father of Fatah, Yassar Arafat was Hitler's Collaborator.  THE BLOOD CONNECTION Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini --- Yasser Arafat
fyi: from Women in Green  Our upcoming 3rd Annual Conference for the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.. DID YOU REGISTER? The venue chosen for the conference, the Bible Lands Museum, after the two preceding conferences had been held in Hebron,  was not by chance according to Katsover and Matar: "This is an unequivocal statement: Eretz Israel belongs to the people of Israel according to the Bible."


 I am THINKING ABOUT whether or not to vote for Likud in the upcoming elections. I understand that the government you lead is THINKING ABOUT allowing use of Ezra House (Beit Ezra) by Jews in accordance with the express wishes of the wronged Jewish owners. Could you let me know when you finish your THINKING so that I can THINK whether or not to vote for you accordingly. It actually seems to me that not much THINKING should be required on your part, since after all, the home is owned by the Ezra family - not by the Likud and certainly not by the Palestinians, but I look forward to hear your THINKING on that point as well.

Moshe Feiglin vs Naftali Bennett - Likud vs Bayit Yehudi, Jewish Home - Chanuka and Elections: - My Analysis

In my last post I put in a good word for Naftali Bennett of Bayit Yehudi, Jewish Home.  Today I received a Manhigut Yehudit newsletter entitled "Moshe Feiglin on Jewish Home party and more"  which included a link to Feiglin's Platform.  In the newsletter he addressed the struggle between Likud and Jewish Home.
I see things differently than Moshe Feiglin.. What follows is my opinion. 
I am under the impression that even though Likud has some excellent Nationalist candidates for Knesset, under Netanyahu they are impotent. 
 Because if they were not impotent they would have insisted and demanded under no uncertain language and terms under threat of leaving the Likud, in response to the recent UN vote granting the PA a nonmember State, that their party, the Likud officially adopt the Levy Report and that Judea and Samaria be annexed.  I have been sick to my stomach at some recent emails I have been receiving. How can Likud still be advocating a 2 State Solution knowing as clear as day that it's based on a lie and we all know that they know that a 2 State Solution can never be a Solution? Netanyahu plays politics and in politics we mask the truth.
I get the sense that Moshe Feiglin plays politics as well and masks the truth because he does not want to appear politically incorrect.  I am referring to his discussion about his opposition to a "religious party".  Feiglin does not feel comfortable talking about the Torah and Halacha (Torah Shebichtav and Torah Shebaal Peh).  He claims that to do so would be to have a sectoral party.  He is more comfortable with terminology like "faith based" Jews.  Apparently, in Moshe's opinion, one can be faith based and not 'religious".
 But it's just a political game and using language as a political weapon. Moshe Feiglin knows that his platform is basically based on Torah Shebichtav and Torah Shebaal Peh.  But I believe his unwillingness to call a spade a spade will cause him to go astray. He claims a "religious" party will coerce but a "faith based party" will not coerce.  So for example if the majority of a community in Israel does not want to observe Shabbat they don't have to.  Let's run this by a Kingdom of days gone by!
A religious party in his opinion would "coerce" people to keep Shabbat.  Here is the flaw that I see in this argument.  A Davidic Kingdom like Solomon's Kingdom was the greatest Kingdom in the World it its time!  King Solomon was proud of the Torah since he knew it was the best road map for humanity.  I am sure that King Solomon would not be happy with a democratic vote of whether to keep Shabbat or not for the Jews living in Israel.  After all keeping Shabbat is in their best interest.  Rather, a wise Solomon would use the most successful Kiruv techniques and professionals and PR people out there to convince the population of the beauty of Shabbat.  Chabad and other Kiruv professionals disagree on approach. Chabad will say that unaffiliated Jews should drive to shul.  Other Kiruv professionals say absolutely not.  But we all agree that in the realm of Torah Shebeal Peh, Rabbinic Law, Eilu veEilu.. each approach is valid as long as it has Rabbinic endorsement and backup.  Other approaches are respected and valid as well.  The Talmud is full of such scenarios and that is what is meant by a Machloketh LeShem Shamayim, and argument for the sake of heaven..  There are 70 faces to the Torah.  But neither side would be happy with a secular democratic vote on whether or not the Torah is right or wrong.
When it comes to right and wrong the written and Oral Torah is our guide.  Feiglin is fearful to take this approach since he does not wish to be branded as a religious extremist fanatic like fundamental Islam. 
Well in my opinion we can learn some things from our enemies and since we never can fathom success using a politically incorrect approach, G-d gives success to our enemies to prove to us that it can be done.  For example: Hamas' slogan is "Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur'an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief".  Slowly this religious slogan is taking over the world by storm. 
Of course Hamas'  "religious" message is horrible. However....
Maybe G-d is sending us a message that a religious message can actually be popular and doable and not to be so afraid to sound religious! But rather than death, Jews choose LIFE!
The Miracle of Chanuka is that there were a few brave individuals, known as the Maccabees who were not afraid to tell the truth.  They did not care about being politically correct.  Matithyahu refused to play the game even though the Greeks would have compensated nicely for such an individual like Matisyahu to have played along.  The miracle of the oil also reflected an unwillingness of the Maccabees to use oil that was merely tainted because it was touched.  The Greeks weren't interested in destroying the oil.  They merely wanted that it be tainted and then used. Lenny Goldberg of Tapuach at Afsi's Chanukah Party in Manhattan enlightened us with his history lesson of the Maccabees. He said that these few individuals brought holiness into the world because they did what they did for G-d's sake alone. Similarly the Chanuka lights must be for G-d's sake exclusively and may not be used for any other purpose. Veein lanu Reshut LeHishtamesh Behem.It is forbidden to use Chanukah lights....Lenny Goldberg contrasted this period in history where the Maccabees succeed in overcoming their enemies with the history of the destruction of the 2nd Temple.  In that period of time there were many groups of Jews who wanted to fight the Romans.  However, they had self interest and each group wanted to take lead in winning the Romans.  So they were splintered and basically  destroyed each other.    What a lesson for our times.
 I pointed out that inj a previous email that Likud is carrying too much negative baggage.  Moshe Feiglin has a valid point that Jewish Home has its share of skeletons in the closet.  So here is a suggestion. Start a new party and call it  "Zocher Habrit". Let us see and review how Hebraic Law had it's origin in all political systems.  
Every member must be willing to forego their place in the sun for the greater good. Zocher Habrit must put G-d's Covenant as #1 priority and personal gain must take a back seat burner. Everyone agrees that the existing way the political parties and cabinet is set up in Israel is not conducive to acting according to G-d's Torah and to voting according to ones inner beliefs of what is right and wrong. 
As you can see from these links we are talking about Fatah and Hamas, an enemy determined to be united and no different than Nazis.  The reports of women and Christians being terrorized is the horrible consequences of our enemies eing given a free reign. Jews are the caretakers of the entire world.  When we do G-d's word the entire world is a safer more peaceful place.  When we don't,'s Holocaust for humanity.
No I don't believe a "religious platform",  that is, one that openly calls for Torah SheBichtav and Torah Shebaal peh platform is sectoral. 
LeHefech, the opposite, it is the only platform that is all inclusive.  Any other platform is sectoral including  Likud's or Manhigut Yehudits
 Shabbat Shalom Umevorach!

SHAME! IDF Soldiers run away rather than shoot! Ezra House in Hevron, belongs to Jewish Owner or Arab Tenant? Naftali Bennett. I like him

Dear Friends of IDF, Media and newly elected Likud Candidates for Knesset amv"sh
Who is responsible for giving the orders to the Chayalim not to shoot when attacked? Are they clerks or politicians or military experts?
If the IDF is functioning based on misplaced concerns about how they look in the Media when they DO WHAT IS MORALLY RIGHT AND DEFEND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL then HOPEFULLY this video will cause them to worry about how they look when they DO NOT DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND FAIL TO defend themselves and the people of Israel! 
Therefore I am sending this shameful and embarrassing video to all the AMERICAN FRIENDS OF THE IDF who want the IDF Soldiers to be soldiers and not wimps.  Please put the pressure on the powers responsible for this shameful conduct.  
In addition, I have sent this video to Likud candidates and my contact list and media list and posted it on my blog. Many Arabs would love scared pictures of Israeli soldiers running from Arabs but unfortunately they are smart enough to know that aggressive Arabs is bad PR and hurt Palestinians is good PR so my guess is that they will not overly promote this video.
I hope those who are so afraid of the International Media will now be significantly embarrassed because Israel's weakness to act responsibly is now exposed. The people of Israel deserve better.   IDF soldiers are being placed in harms way because of irresponsible orders coming from politicians and not generals. 
Too many fatal statistics and news items prove that roads are unsafe in Judea and Samaria and lives are in danger as a result of stone throwers unchecked!
Likud under Netanyahu's watch is ultimately responsible.  Likud has too much baggage weighing it down to act, too concerned with public opinion to act with strength in action consistent with its rhetoric. In fact I seriously believe that their rhetoric is deeply flawed making it impossible to act with inner strength.  Only Ourselves to Blame.
On the other hand,  I really like what I am hearing from Naftali Bennett of Bayit Yehudi.
I liked Naftali Bennett's no nonsense approach to CNN!
The IDF is not the only one getting orders from those unqualified and unauthorized and Naftali Bennett speaks out on this as well.  He has an innate ability to identify and expose the root or shall we say rot of the problem.

The Praklitut is the Hebrew term for the State Attorney's Office. Over the years, this office has become a pro-Palestinian stronghold which works energetically against Judea and Samaria and much less energetically on everything Israeli society really needs. 

To change this, the Likud needs to act like what it really is-- the ruling party. The Likud must stop being a Praklikud -- in which senior ministers and even the prime minister himself take their marching orders from shadowy State Attorney's Office personnel who run a policy approved by no-one.
So who's running for office this election day - Likud or Praklikud? We will find out this coming week – when the issue of Ezra House in Hebron comes up.

Fwd: Voter Fraud? Was the election stolen? An Urgent Appeal from a Patriotic Voter in NW Ohio

I read the following post and had to describe my own voting experience in NYC.
I personally had very bad vibes when I went to vote.  I suspected voter fraud as soon as I was in the voting area.  
I worried about the possibility before election day but it never occurred to me that my fears would actualize in the place I actually voted.  I feared that there would be some places where voter fraud might take place but I didn't suspect it would have anything to do with my vote.
I have been voting in the same place for many years and I'm familiar with the typical demographic of those manning the tables and voting booths, generally middle age to elderly primarily white but not necessarily so, multicultural and multi ethnic reflecting the general population in my area,  This time it seemed very weird that in an almost white neighborhood all the individuals manning the actual voting stalls were African Americans. I am not racist but this did not make sense to me.  The mix of voting personnel manning the voting booths should reflect the general  population as it usually does.  This indicated to me that they imported these people from other areas or took them from a skewed group of people.  I never remember such a phenomenon and that raised a red flag.
 Neither I nor my husband felt there was any privacy. This disturbed me so much that before I actually voted I called up an elected official giving them the name of the actual Public School where i was voting asking them to please check out my particular voting district and make sure that everything was on the up and up. 
It surprised me that Obama won so strongly. It shocked me that in some districts he received 100% of votes.  I know that African Americans as well as Hispanics campaigned for Romney. I couldn't believe that even in districts with many African Americans and Hispanics there was absolutely noone voting for Romney!  Another red flag.    In my daughters private school,  the kids had a mock election.  It did not surprise me to learn that Romney won over 470 votes and Obama got around 30 in her school. Kids grades 3-8 voted.  This probably was very indicative and a reflection of the voting patterns of their parents.  If any other elementary school or high schools in the area,  public or private had mock elections I would be interested to see if they were  in any way consistent with the vote tally in the actual districts. 
Personally I really hate the new system of voting in NYC.  It definitely seemed much less secure than the old way of voting.  Why for heavens sake in this age of technology and computers is there a 2-4 step process whereby you have to take a paper and color it in in a "closed booth" and then go out of the closed booth to another area where you are assigned a number to a scanner and  it is openly scanned and manually manned by individuals who can often see how you voted on your paper.  In my case, I was first cleared to vote.  They then gave me a card with a number and a ballot. I handed the card to one of the people by a scanner and  was assigned to a particular scanner.   I didn't realize that first I had to fill in the ballot before getting assigned to the scanner. So  I filled in the ballot in a "closed booth" and once again went out in the open area to get it scanned.   I accidentally picked a different scanner than the one assigned to my voting card.  I wouldn't have realized that this was an issue except that the person who originally took by voting card  realized that I had used a different scanner than the one assigned to me and commented on it. 
 Why are all these steps necessary I thought to myself.  I wondered if having used  a different scanner for my ballot than the one assigned to me made my vote invalid?   
Why can't it just be one secure step where it is all online computerized electronically and one goes to a closed room with a computer and a touch tone screen and you identify yourself electronically, pick your choices of whom you wish to vote using the touch screen, and then it asks for your confirmation, you say yes and your vote gets registered? I am sure there are many high tech people who can make sure that the security is not breached. 
The old way was not computerized but it was at least the voting process was private. Perhaps what happened after the voting process took place alllowed room for unlawful intervention.
 I imagine that a smart online program would ask you for your signature or thumbprint  or voice recognition to verify and make sure you are who you are and that you are indeed registered to vote.  This can be reinforced with someone checking your photo ID.  This way even someone who is away from home can vote online and the system makes sure that there are no impostors and no way to alter the vote by an unethical employee or supervisor who gains access somewhere in the process. Such a system would eliminate a separate count going on district by district which leaves room for intrusion as well.  Every vote would go instantaneously and securely to one central source and a back up source leaving it almost impossible to penetrate the voting process by unscrupulous forces.  TV audiences vote for their pick of a Star in a Talent show.  Now a days everything is done online so why not vote online?
  I really hope that people in Congress and the Senate take this investigation very seriously.

From Rob in Northwest Ohio:

What follows below is a slightly edited version of a letter that I sent to my own member of the House of Representatives, Bob Latta. I sent a similar communication to my GOP Senator, Rob Portman, and to the Speaker of the House, John Boehner. I would urge all of you to write similar letters to potentially sympathetic members of Congress, or other relevant government officials, and to forward this e-mail and ask your like-minded friends to do the same.  A few letters here and there will do nothing, but if enough of us write, perhaps there will be some result.
Dear Representative Latta,

In the wake of what could well have been the most consequential election in U.S. history - certainly in our lifetimes - I am gravely concerned that we have just witnessed the greatest example of election fraud in our history.
Our Founding Fathers designed an ingenious system.  I consider the four-year presidential term to be just the right amount of time to determine if a given newly-elected president is "up to the job".  In addition to the checks and balances of our courts and the legislative branch, this is also a critical "check" on an inept or even destructive president.
Yet, in this case, the "check" clearly failed.  Despite a singularly dismal record on nearly every major issue, foreign and domestic, this president was re-elected anyway.  Was this simply because the GOP is allegedly 'out of touch' on social issues, as some claim? How could this be when exit polls showed that jobs/economy was the #1 issue, and moreover, reliable polling showed that voters trusted Romney more than Obama on these issues in any event?  Was this merely on the strength of the Hispanic vote over immigration?  Hispanics generally favor the Democratic party; could Obama have really won on the strength of that one constituency? 
I submit to you that something of a much darker nature has happened.
Consider, given Obama's record, the incredible sense of urgency about replacing Obama that I encountered among every Republican or Republican-leaning independent I met or with whom I communicated; surely this was your experience as well.  Yet, Obama "won" with less votes than McCain got in '08, and Romney got just over two million fewer votes than that, with an overall turnout less than even the '04 election
That we saw such turnout results in an election in which the presidential debates - particularly the first one - garnered an unprecedented viewing audience, is simply incredible to me. 
In such an environment, that we couldn't even turn out as many votes for Romney as we did for McCain four years ago is nothing short of surreal...and completely lacking in credibility as an honest proposition, given the above.
Look at what happened right here in NW Ohio.
You saw the huge number of yard signs everywhere for Romney, vastly outnumbering those for Obama.  And then there were the "Protect Religious Freedom" yard signs; since when in living memory, if ever, did anyone consider that necessary?
Surely, you know of the vast disparity in enthusiasm for Romney at his rallies, versus Obama at his.  I've heard countless anecdotal reports of this.  You must have heard about the local union types who, the week before the election, were caught stealing Romney yard signs; that is the sign of a desperate campaign if ever there could be.  Our ground game here in NW Ohio was far beyond what was done in '08; the Tea Party that greatly augmented the GOP efforts in this regard both here and nationally - and which produced decisive results only two years ago - didn't even exist when McCain ran in '08.  Yet Obama "won" in Wood could this be?
The evidence of election rigging goes on even from there.  How about Federal efforts to halt purging of voter rolls in Florida, interference with enforcement of our own voter ID laws right here in Ohio, pressure on Pennsylvania to postpone enforcement of their own newly-enacted voter ID law until next year? 
Is it not suspicious that Obama did not win a single state with voter photo ID laws on the books?  That he won every major swing state otherwise, despite the volatility of the polling in these states leading up to the election?
I could go on with even more examples, but I'm sure you see my point by now, and you may have seen these and more examples yourself from other sources.
I am writing to tell you that, as a voter, as a citizen, as someone with no special inside knowledge, it is clear and obvious to me - and many others I know - that this election was stolen.  
Where presidential elections are concerned, have we now sunk to the level of Venezuela?
I am just a factory worker.  I do not have the resources, the power, or the influence, beyond my vote - Does this matter anymore? - and my small circle of like-minded family and friends, to address this crime.  For that is what it was:  a crime against this nation and her people.
I have to count on people such as yourself, my elected representatives at the national level, to investigate and pursue this matter for a just resolution.  This has got to be investigated, and exposed.  Hearings have got to be held.  Responsible parties must be brought to justice. 
This historic travesty cannot be allowed to stand.
Thank you for your efforts.

URGENT! Palestinian UN move against Israel tomorrow November 29th


Dear Elected Likud-Beytenu Representatives: Will you be true to your constituency? Tomorrow will be the  test to see if you will really make a difference in the Likud party or whether you will be a bunch of sitting ducks.


The hostile and dangerous 29 November Palestinian maneuver is shocking.

ISRAEL HAD BETTER ACT NOW WITH STRENGTH!  Right Wing Likud Knesset members must apply pressure to Netanyahu to act with strength:

 Dear Knesset Members:  Mazal Tov on winning a top spot in the Likud primary.  I campaigned for many of you.  But...If your influence is not significant, and Likud continues to appease, that is an indication that Likud is impotent, incapable of change under Netanyahu (probably due to its excess baggage and misdeeds in the past weighing it down). Consider starting anew,  establishing a new party by remembering our past and merge with other Nationalist parties and MK's.

Sunday likud primary Who to vote for. Please forward to your friends, lists


Likud Primaries - Recommendations

Likud primaries have been announced for THIS SUNDAY 25 November. Voting hours are 9 AM to 10 PM. If you are registered, you got a letter announcing this. Please bring your ID card (teudat zehut) and, preferably, also the letter. Voting locations are ANY of the following:  i.e. you do NOT need to vote where you live.

You MUST vote for EXACTLY 12 candidates, plus 1 more in your "machoz" (geographical area), total 13 candidates. Our suggestions below are based on Mattot Arim comparative parliamentary achievement reports throughout the term, plus opposition to Palestinian state, plus realistic chances (for example - the slot reserved for olim is so low that it is unlikely to yield an actual Knesset seat). Suggestions:

1-6 - "Must" level: There appear to be 6 candidates who are a "must" on each ideological voter's ballot. These are MK's Zipi Hotovely (women's slot), Danny Danon, Zeev Elkin, and Yariv Levin who were high achievers in ALL of the Mattot Arim achievement reports throughout the term (their Mattot Arim achievement scores are a whopping 94, 98, 98 and 98 respectively!!!). Yuli Edelstein was the highest achiever among the ministers. Finally there is a new, very well known hence very realistic, strong Eretz Yisrael candidate - Moshe Feiglin.

7: Keti Shitrit -- National Camp candidate, reserved slot ("new women candidates") placed high enough to get into Knesset, running against a less desirable candidate associated wih the left.

8: DrGabi Avital  - National Camp candidate, believed to have a realistic voting base hence capable of entering the Knesset

9, 10, 11, 12: Select from among the following, who oppose Palestinian state and whose Mattot Arim achievement scores are indicated: Ofir Akunis 84, Gilad Erdan 69, Gila Gamliel 71, Ayub Kara 74, Yisrael Katz 73, Leah Nes 67, Zion Pinian 86,  Miri Regev 86, Ruby Rivlin 81, Gidon Saar 69, Silvan Shalom 75, Moshe-Bogy Yaalon 77. Anglos who are more aware than Hebrew speakers of the dangerous diplomatic currents in the world which are reported mainly in English, may wish to particularly include Gidon Saar who led ministerial opposition to the disastrous notion of Palestinian state.  Note that candidates not listed above, are not believed to be realistic OR are not expected to devote themselves to prevent Palestinian state & to other National Camp strategic goals.

13: Candidate in YOUR geographic area (find your geographic area here:מפת_המחוזות_נספח_א.pdf): This 13th vote may not sound important, but it is:

Shfela - Meir Malka -  important new ideological pro-Eretz Yisrael candidate in a realistic slot, running against powerful competition who are  -- to put it delicately -- not Eretz Yisrael supporters;

Jerusalem – Moshe Ifargan,  Galilee – Davidi Harmelin, Negev – Itzik (Yizhak) Danino; Mishor haChof - Zadok Cohen, Moatzot - David Grosberg, Gush Dan - Yosi Fuchs (Anglo), Tel-Aviv - Lior Ben-Ezra. A less desirable candidate, Sinai Kehat, is shown here consorting with Arafat, hoping to encourage others to do so:

MK Zion Pinian has asked us to clarify that he too opposes Palestinian state.
