The State Department's role in arming our P.A. enemies is suddenly coming to the fore; good, let the mask be off..... And, musings on Rav Eliashiv Z"L's passing.


The article below by Arlene Kuschner, thanks to Jack. The next one providentially also on the same topic: it seems Hashem wants the world to finally know the truth about the promoters of Arab terror in Judea and Samaria; this crime has been going on in secret for far too long. Put two and two together: the video of John Loftus I posted a few days ago:

 ... and now this... I hope you get it.

 On another note: did you get enough shocks to your system today? Between Rav Eliashiv's passing, Z"L, ( Baruch Dayan Emet), Bulgaria, Syria, Sicily, the weather...Am Yisrael and the world are being shaken like a lettuce in a salad shaker!

... And look at another interesting coincidence: four years ago I wrote an post on Rav Eliashiv: well, guess what else was discussed in that post? Exactly the same thing: the topic of the U.S. arming the P.A., thereby promoting terror against us! It seems that in the upper realms Rav Eliashiv's passing is allowing this information to surface now; is he already helping us, the residents of Judea and Samaria, from the next world - or was his presence on earth blocking this information from being known? Was his earthly existence somehow sheltering the U.S., the State Department, various U.S. agencies and the Nazi sympathizers ensconced there, from Divine judgment, so millions of U.S. Jews could continue living in America unhindered and content? Whom else, what else did he protect? Has something changed drastically with his passing? We see in the Torah that with Aharon's and Miriam's deaths major changes occurred in the nation. Shall we see the same phenomenon here? Time will tell: already Shimon Peres is mourning him; curious....

...My next topic is also with regard to shameful behavior.  But what I have in mind here is the behavior of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and she's beyond shame.

Credit: Telegraph UK
First she was in Egypt.  There, she not only met with President Morsi, but promoted this Muslim Brotherhood leader. In a thinly veiled statement, she suggested that the military pull back and allow a "civilian" administration to govern.  But the military is our best hope for stability in Egypt!  (See below as to how it may well be that the military truly is in charge.)

The Obama administration has responsibility for the downfall of Mubarak and the fact that there is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in his place now.  You would think Obama would have learned a lesson with regard to meddling, but in fact it seems there's almost an eagerness to embrace the Brotherhood.
"We believe America’s shared strategic interests with Egypt far outnumber our differences," Clinton cooed.

And then she willfully permitted an Egyptian misrepresentation of the Egyptian-Israeli peace agreement to pass.

This is what she said in an official statement (emphasis added):

"More than three decades ago, Egypt and Israel signed a treaty that has allowed a generation to grow up without knowing war. And on this foundation, we will work together to build a just, comprehensive, regional peace in the Middle East based on two states for two people with peace, security, and dignity for all."

What two states? 

Well, in his statement, the foreign minister of Egypt said via an interpreter (again, emphasis added):

"I would like to add something about the peace treaty. Mr. President has repeatedly reaffirmed, and on all occasions, that Egypt continues to respect all treaties signed as long as the other party to the treaty respects the treaty itself. And today, he once again reiterated this issue and also reiterated that Egypt’s understanding of peace is that it should be comprehensive, exactly as stipulated in the treaty itself. And this also includes the Palestinians, of course, and its right to – their right have their own state on the land that was – the pre June 4th, 1967 borders (sic) with Jerusalem as its capital."

There's only one problem with this. The peace treaty with Egypt did not stipulate anything about Israel being required to grant the Palestinian Arabs a full state based on the '67 lines, with Jerusalem as its capital.  (I'll come back in due course to the exact wording of that agreement.) This is an addition by Morsi that gives him latitude to claim it is Israel that isn't honoring the treaty.

And not only did Clinton not correct this mis-statement, holding the Egyptians to their obligations according to the treaty, she parlayed this into a pitch for a Palestinian state.


And there's more.  Now Clinton is in Israel.  She said all sorts of obligatory things about standing strong against Iran.  But, according to  Israeli officials, she also -- are you ready?? -- pressured Netanyahu and Barak to offer incentives to the PA to bring them back to the table.

Bad enough in any event.  Breathtakingly stupid, actually.  If Abbas needs "incentives" to come to the table to discuss "peace," it means he isn't interested in peace.  Are Obama and Clinton too obtuse to notice this, or don't they really care as long as there is the semblance of "peace negotiations"?


There is not the remotest evidence that Abbas wants to come to the table.  I'm reading that the US is concerned because Hamas is seen to be gaining influence in Judea and Samaria; American officials believe that if Abbas makes progress on "peace" it will enhance his standing.

But they've got it absolutely backwards.  The populace of the PA territories has been making it clear that they are not looking for peace negotiations.  They rioted when Mofaz was to come meet with Abbas. (Those riots lasted some time and some analysts believe this means Abbas is losing his grip.)


With this all, comes the most stunning piece of information: What I'm reading is that Clinton wants Israel to release PA prisoners and give the PA small arms.  Let me say this again: small arms.

If this is so, it is daft.  It is an outrage.


This is also enormously interesting.  For I picked up this information on YNet, and, as is my practice, saved the URL so I might return to the article. But the information had been removed.

Searching the Internet, I accessed the Times of Israel article above, which did carry this information (assuming that when each of you accesses this URL it's still there).  The Times cites YNet as the original source.  I did not imagine it!

Was it removed from YNet because there had been an error, or because, as there is reason to suspect, the information, which might be considered of an "inflammatory" nature, was censored, perhaps informally?  No answers to this as yet.


In any event, the notion of providing the PA with arms is grossly unreasonable.  There is a risk, at all times, of PA security forces turning their weapons on us -- there is precedent for this. 

But under current conditions it is over the top.

Just four days ago, there was a report citing the outgoing commander of the Binyamin division, Col. Saar Tzur, who said that since the release of prisoners in the trade for Shalit, there has been a sharp increase in the number of attempted terror attacks.  There is a major point to be made here regarding the wisdom of doing such trades, but let's skip past that for the moment.

What Col. Tzur said, according to YNet, is that:

"...the Israel Defense Forces had to increase its activities in recent months due to the ongoing attempts between Hamas and Fatah to reach a reconciliation agreement, which has meant that the Palestinian Authority has cut down its operations against possible terrorist groups.

"Civilians don't notice it, but we're working a lot harder."

The PA is attempting to merge with the terrorist group Hamas, and is cutting back on its operations against terrorists, and we should give the PA weapons? 

There is no need to say more -- except to point out that Obama definitely does not have Israel's back.

Op-Ed: US Jews Are Missing the Target in the Upcoming Election

Published: Wednesday, July 18, 2012 10:39 PM
As far as Israel is concerned, both candidates are not the problem. The State Department is.

A recent A7 article by a respected colleague of mine discussed Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama in the upcoming US presidential election.
The article pointed out how Romney discussed the potential appointment of James Baker as the US Secretary of State as a worrisome sign that Romney’s potential election could be fraught with problems. The article also pointed out President Obama’s long term relationship with assorted anti-Semites and Israel haters during his political career and personal life.
To be sure, Obama has proven himself to be a liar when it comes to Israel. In a pre-election speech before AIPAC, Obama stated that Jerusalem should be Israel’s undivided capital suggesting the US Embassy would be finally move there from Tel Aviv. Once elected, Obama did not do this.
Romney, on the other hand, has not even addressed this idea with a statement. That is, once elected, we can be sure he won’t move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
His advisors are discussing appointing the inane Condoleeza Rice as his Vice Presidential candidate. It was Rice, while serving as Former President Bush’s Secretary of State, who insisted Hamas be included in Palestinian elections that resulted in the creation of Hamastan where Gaza used to be, and that ushered in the missile crisis in the south.
Hillary Clinton, as Obama’s Secretary of State, has repeated her predecessor’s statement that the southern half of Israel should be part of a contiguous Palestinian state. The press nary batted an eye each time this was said.
Those with short memories might think that President George W. Bush was more pro-Israel. But Bush placed sanctions on Israel when it came to weapons at one time and was responsible for pulling Arafat out of the fire when Sharon had him surrounded in the Mukata with all his terror leaders. One F-16 could have put a final end to the PLO and Hamas’s terror control of the budding new Iranian proxy state rising next door to Israel. Instead, Israel is ever more at the precipice.
Neither of these presidential candidates will be good for Israel or for American Jews. The real target for Jewish media and Diaspora Jewry in particular should be Congress and the US State Department. Jews on both sides of the presidential election should be putting pressure on those entities.
The State Department is heavily influenced by Saudi and Gulf Sheik money. This even includes money from the PLO.
USAID funds the Palestinian welfare scam, as it always has, because Saudi influence encourages it to do so.
The so-called Arab Spring is a State Department plan to align the Muslim Brotherhood as the new boys on the block in the Arab states against their traditional enemies, the Shiites in Iran. This began under President Bush and is being carried out by President Obama. It will no doubt be carried forward by a President Romney unless people act.
As for Israel, as far as both candidates and the state department goes, she can twist in the wind. For now, Israel is secure since she is the only reliable US ally, a depot for weapons and medical support for US personnel in the event of regional war. Despite a distaste for “the Jews” by the US State Department, Israel still holds some materially strategic cards for the United States as the only democracy and safe haven for US forces.
Obama will probably be reelected. Not because he is the best man, but because he is the lesser of two evils. Republican acolytes fail to grasp that attacking national health care, something the United States should have had forty years ago, will only alienate the vast majority of voters who face bankruptcy if they get sick according to the current system.
The talk by either party of balancing the budget is just that: talk. Obama showed how much he cares about a balanced budget by yet again letting the State Department pour 450 million dollars into Abbas’ PLO welfare scam in the Palestinian Authority after a similar amount was sent to Hamastan - all this as the US Treasury faces more than a 14 trillion dollar deficit.
How many Israeli, and American Jews for that matter, know that a Palestinian U.S.-trained army is being built up under a State Department-controlled General Keith Dayton who has warned they will attack Israel within two years if the Arabs don ‘t get what they want?
Even if Romney gets elected, it is clear he will not change any of this course, a course that actually began under James Baker when he was Secretary of State.

The Saudis had their greatest successes against Israel with the Bush family in the White House, since they had personal connections to the Saudi royal family.
American Jews are more likely to vote because of national health care than because of what happens to Israel. Social programs for Americans are preeminent in their minds and that is why American Jews support Obama, except for ardent Jewish Republicans.
American Jews should be concentrating on working with Congress and lobbying both presidential candidates to rein in US State Department plans that put Israel at risk and waste American treasure.
The Saudis had their greatest successes against Israel with the Bush family in the White House, since they had personal connections to the Saudi royal family. This is continuing with Obama, as we see CAIR, the Hamas front, still has access to the halls of power in Washington.
American college campuses have had the last ten years to be part of a network to demonize Israel in the eyes of upcoming generations of Americans and that will only bolster the State Department’s goal of a Palestinian state as a sop to the Saudis no matter what the long term costs.
A consortium of Jews for Romney as well as Jews for Obama needs to call on both candidates in front of the media and demand they state what they intend to do about the US State Department expenditures and money for the Muslim Brotherhood if elected, and to outline a plan to stop USAID funding of Palestinian terrorism groups under the guise of “making peace.”
Today, the PLO’s chief lobbyist in Congress is the former US State Department consul for Jerusalem. who gave Arafat 40 million dollars of USAID money, then retired to work for Arafat for one million of those dollars a year. His name is Edward Abington.
Abington also testified on behalf of the Holyland Trial terrorism funders to try and get them off. Fortunately, government prosecutors were not so subject to monetary rewards and persuaded the jury to find those funders of Hamas guilty. Abington serves as an example of what is going on.
For this presidential election, the target should be the US State Department because regardless of who gets elected , the situation for Israel is going to be the same.
