About Felix Quigley

Campaigning to show that Srebrenica was and is a huge hoax, which is also the case with Racak, Qana and Mohammed el Dura/France 2. When people understand that these are hoaxes then they will begin to understand that Yugoslavia was destroyed, and most important that they plan to destroy Israel, because the US Empire plans to rule the world along with Islam, the latter being a very evil fascist ideology which is very close to the evil ideology of US and EU NATO Empire. Of course there will be adaptations but I am certain that is the general trend. Build4international!

THE IRAN “DEAL”

By Clare Lopez – – Wednesday, April 15, 2015

The Obama administration spin narrative about what a great success nuclear negotiations with Iran are was already coming unglued the day after the April Fool’s Day ‘framework’ was announced. Mr. Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and their advisors were trying desperately to portray the endless succession of contentious talks between the P5+1 and Iran as a great success even as the Iranians spoiled all the fun by essentially calling the Americans out as liars, and declaring that what they called “the U.S. version” was “not acceptable to Iran.”

And in fact, the European Union, the French, Iran, and the U.S. have all put out differing accounts of what was actually agreed upon in Lausanne, Switzerland in late March 2015. As Amir Taheri pointed out in a trenchant 4 April 2015 piece at the New York Post, all we really have is a “diplomatic dog’s dinner” of competing and contradictory statements. It’s not any kind of agreement at all.

But if we take a step backward and consider what we already know or ought to know about Iran’s nuclear weapons program, it should become rather quickly obvious that all this diplomatic wrangling about centrifuges, enrichment levels, inspection regimes, and sunset clauses is nothing but window dressing.

That’s because the real Iranian nuclear weapons program very likely is not the one they’re all tussling over. The real Iranian nuclear weapons program long ago was withdrawn behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy guarded by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS—Iran’s primary intelligence agency).

While it’s long been known that the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini ordered the IRGC to “get the bomb” in the waning days of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war, details about the subsequent 25-year Iranian commitment to comply with that order are much less well-known.

As the so-called “father of the Pakistani bomb,” Abdul Qadir Khan, wrote in documents obtained by the Washington Post in 2010, Pakistan provided Iran with blueprints and parts for centrifuges and shared its secret list of worldwide suppliers. That’s how the Iranian nuclear weapons program got started. But neither the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) nor the public knew anything about this until the Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), blew the lid off Iran’s program in August 2002. The Iranian regime, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), went to panic stations and came up with a plan to limit the damage. The Iran Lobby in America would have a key role to play in that damage control operation.

Much as the Iranians’ mentors in the clandestine WMD business—the Soviet KGB—had done earlier when some of its illicit weapons programs made media headlines, the Iranians conceded a few of the sites that were now exposed: Natanz, Isfahan, Arak, and later Fordow.

Lavizan-Shian, where the regime had worked on nuclear warhead design, was deemed too sensitive, so it was simply razed to the ground in 2003 and its components moved elsewhere.

Natanz, the buried uranium enrichment site where some 9,000 centrifuges currently are operating, became the centerpiece of the regime’s new information operation. It was opened to IAEA inspections, figured prominently in the IAEA’s quarterly reports, and was allowed on the P5+1 nuclear negotiations agenda.

Likewise it was with Isfahan, the conversion plant; Arak, the heavy water reactor that gives Iran a parallel plutonium route to the bomb; and Fordow, a deeply buried centrifuge facility.

Everybody was kept very busy arguing, discussing, and negotiating about the sites Iran got caught with—and now, more recently, a non-existent ‘agreement’ that each of the parties describes in its own, mutually contradictory, terms. Indeed, all the negotiating teams from the IAEA, Britain, China, the European Union, France, Germany, Russia, and the U.S. are being kept so busy that nearly everyone has forgotten all about the fact that Iran’s entire nuclear program was an illicit clandestine one until the NCRI exposed it—or that virtually every site in that program that’s now public was revealed by someone other than Iran…which the P5+1 now inexplicably wants to trust to open all its nuclear facilities to IAEA inspection.

Parchin, a military site where the IAEA believes Iran has conducted nuclear trigger explosives tests, provides a good example of how the regime deals with demands to open places to inspection it would rather remain closed: as Bill Gertz explains at the Free Beacon, they just say “no.” And, as with Lavizan-Shian a dozen years earlier, they conduct a “clean-up” operation to tear down buildings and destroy parts of the complex they’d prefer not show up in any more satellite images.

Naturally, Parchin has not been included in any of the P5+1 talks, nor has the U.S. delegation even suggested that it ought to be. It has been the same with other suspicious sites like Khondab and Lavizan-3, now revealed publicly, but left completely off the agenda. This is not to even consider how many additional clandestine sites Iran has been operating, but are as yet not revealed.

The critical issues before us then are not so much about the number of centrifuges, or which generation of centrifuges, or what level of enrichment will be allowed to Iran going forward at the show case sites: rather, we must ask why and how our negotiators have themselves been spun up to dither endlessly, but only about sites already in the public domain. Iran’s secret parallel nuclear weapons program remains unmentioned and untouched.

In Part 2 of this series, the critical role of the Iran Lobby will be examined.

PART 2

 

 

ALLIANCE BETWEEN STALINISED RUSSIA AND IRAN HAS BEEN SHATTERED IN YEMEN BY SAUDI ATTACKS

This montage is interesting. Stalin also represented an acceptance and a seeking of agreement with world capitalism (Imperialism). Stalin also even made a 1939 pact with Hitler and with the Nazis which pact Trotsky opposed right down the line. You can see Putin carrying out the same opportunist methods in his Alliance with Iran. Absolute betrayal of the Russian workers and Russian people as a whole.

The alliance between the Stalinist Russian regime of Putin and Iran has been shattered (and shattered well and truly for a considerable time) in Yemen. Russia is a small time state in the world situation. It has an economy less than the size of Britain. It is deceptive. The land mass is great, it has nuclear arms, but it is not a great nation by any means in today’s world. And it has carried on under Putin with this relationship with the Nazi Fascist Iran. (By the way we as Trotskyists defend Russia against the attacks on it by the Ukrainian Fascists led by Obama…but that is a separate matter. Here we are talking about the links between Russia and the Iranian Fascists.

Through these links which Russia holds with Iran there is going on a great betrayal of the Jews. It is this betrayal of the Jews by the whole of the West that is the main factor today. In the very middle of the talks the Iranians were threatening to destroy Israel! They know they are supported by Obama and Cameron!

The fact that Saudi Arabia has called this bluff internationally of the Russian Stalinist IN LEAGUE WITH THE IRANIAN MULLAHS is in my book a plus.I am a Trotskyist and I do not follow any dogma. The alliance of these Stalinists with Iran is one of the most degenerate things that it is possible to do.

The facts are that the Saudis have control of the air space over Yemen. In general this does not mean anything other than that the country is going to descend into Islamic type barbarism and this will happen very quickly. The Jihad is the Jihad. They will fight to the death and be happy to do so to make Allah proud. More chaos from Obama in Yemen is the logical conclusion.

But it has meant that Russia has had its bluff called. That is its bluff of playing the Iranian Mullah Nazi side while RT poses as a left media grouping. It is not indeed it is not!

Note…this goes very deep. Look at the comments on the Irish site thejournal.ie and you will see these Left Islamists like the SWP line up with Iran despodism every day. Crisis of leadership in the left! Inside of socialism great crisis!

With the Saudis controlling the skies no Russian planes have landed and so no Russian nationals have exited Yemen in the past days. The Saudis have seen Russia as the spies and allies of Iran. The Saudis are a bit weird. They have this lethal Islamic Supremacist Wahhabism but find themselves threatened by Iran. The split between the Shia and Sunni is near absolute at this point in time.

But who has come racing to the aid of the Iran fascists none other than Obama and the Democratic Party in America. See http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/16735#.VSOeWJvYdy1

HAMAS IS CLASSIC FASCIST AND IN ELECTION PALESTINIAN ARABS SWUNG BEHIND…WHY DEFENCE OF NETANYAHU IS CENTRAL

According to Hamas’ official television station, “Christians, Communists and Jews must be eliminated down to the very last man.” Hamas has the support of 61 percent of the Palestinians. Even if we assume that support for Hamas will fall, Hamas will take a violent stand against its opponents. Some of the Hamas leaders are talking about “the conquest of Rome and Andalusia.”

The above is on Israpundit and comes from an article on the Jewish website YNET NEWS

QUOTE…Ben-Dror Yemini, writing in YNET, which is left of center and Netanyahu’s arch enemy, makes the case, “Given the upheaval in the Arab world, Obama needs to ask himself why he thinks a Palestinian state is viable right now; meanwhile, Israel’s right needs to understand that its actions are leading to a bi-national state.”

http://www.israpundit.org/archives/63605679

CAN I ANALYSE THE ABOVE…The position of YNET is contradictory. Like all Jews it is loyal in the final analysis to Israel but let me examine the contradiction.

YNet analyses correctly that Hamas is basically Fascist (Note the reference to the killing of Communists in the above – classic Fascist position meaning not just Jew Hatred is involved here)

YNet also verifies for us that the Arabs in Palestine are swinging behind Hamas, that is behind that genocide.

Yet YNET feels it has to criticise the single Jewish State idea. I call the Likud wing Jewish Patriot and definitely not Right or Left etc.

How can that make any sense except to in essence blame the Jews for the Antisemitism of Islam (the Jihad) (The fact that in the election Arabs swung behind the above Antisemitism which I actually am characterising as Fascism)

Ynet which also represents Herzog and Livni thus live out a contradiction. That was what led to the attacks on Netanyahu in the elction.

Netanyahu actually saved Israel from the Fascism of the Arabs and he did this by confronting Obama and really challenging the whole basis that Obama operates his Jihadist Muslim political positions upon.

It was the March 8 action in the American Congress that saved Israel. To take this action Netanyahu had to fight these (is it safe to say traitors) at home.

Why do I use the Word “action”? I do so because it was more than a speech it was a “political action”.

The drive to Fascism led by Obama was stopped by that action. I have explained elsewhere how that political action made the necessary change from “houses” to the EXISTENTIAL IRAN ISSUE.

To move forward Netanyahu still has to be defended. Without that defence you cannot move forward.

Why precisely is this? Because life is causal.

I SAY…You cannot leapfrog. If you do not defend Netanyahu then you are saying nothing happened on March 8 in that fateful Congress in historical America.

THE ISLAMIC JIHAD DOMINATES ALL OF OUR LIVES AND WE STILL DO NOT KNOW WHO THE CO-PILOT REALLY IS

We live in a world of lies.

We still do not know who is the co-pilot of the German plane that was driven into the Alps causing unending suffering and loss for relatives.The simplest answer is that he was a man who suffered from forms of depression and moreover we do not know how this was effected by the nature of the world we live in. Which is without dispute the world of Jihad.

But on 4international we remarked from the beginning that we are continually denied knowledge about Islam.

At the most basic level our sensibilities are atacked by the likes of Karen Armstrong whose claims that Islam in Spain was a good experience for humans went unchallenged and still is unchallenged.

Here I exclude people like Robert Spencer (to pick one of these truthful anti-Jihadists) who does show that Armstrong gives totally false information about Islam in Spain.

But that work of Spencer is not the mass market which is controlled by the Media and by a whole machinery of state governemnts.

Whatever emerges in time (and the Media will not ever give us the truth) about this German co-pilot our world has been turned upsdide down by Islam and by the various forms of its Jihad

This Jihad takes many forms and the most serious form is not violence. It is ideology which is like a cáncer eating into democratic rights. I refer to my comment in this regard relating to Karen Armstrong. But it goes very wide. Do not misunderstand. The violence of Islam is critical (In the midst of this Alps tragedy I watched a stoning on you tube of a Young Somalian girl or woman buried up to her neck and stoned. But it is the interaction of this Jihad violence and human perception especially leadership that is of such moment to us today. (for example the betrayal of what goes for  the “left”)

Also on a purely mechanical level…The action of the co-pilot would not have been possible without 9-11

It was the reaction to 9-11 that meant that new locks were placed on cabin doors the most critical of which was the simple mechanical lock from INSIDE

That reaction to 9-11 was thus indeed the critical reaction that led to the Alps tragedy. Whether that ends up having a link to Islam or not that was central in this.

WAS IT A JIHADIST IN COCKPIT OF GERMANWINGS PLANE ATROCITY? CAN WE EVER KNOW?

Could there be a Jihadist component to this tragedy? In cases like this things are not always totally clear and there are so many vested interests. But Islamic violence does try to make war on the “Infidel” and we know that Islamic Jihadists pay close attention to air transport violence.

What the report from the NYT shows is the utter terror in that plane with the first pilot locked out and hammering on the door. The passengers must have been going totally out of their minds at that point. The tragedy of the situation – imagine if you are a relative and forced to think back on that! The situation is one of complete terror. We cannot tell if there was a Jihadist component here and we may never tell but it is from Islam that all of our terror is coming (thinking of the terror inflicted on Christioan girls in North Nigeria at the hands of Boko Haram and will the Chibook girls ever be found is a big question?) That kind of terror is happening all around us.

The BBC throw doubt on the New York Times article. The NY Times report is a major challenge to all the dhimmies in which BBC occupies centre place. The BBC will try to rubbish the NY Times claims about one in the cockpit. That is what has happened in their latest article and they wheel out their main dhimmi Robert Westcott. He is a long in the tooth dhimmi! The BBC write: “Remi Jouty, director of the French aviation investigative agency, said he hoped investigators would have the “first rough ideas in a matter of days” but the full analysis could take weeks or even months. However, the New York Times quoted an unnamed investigator as saying that one of the pilots – it is not clear if it is the captain or the first officer – left the cockpit and had been unable to get back in. “The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door, and there is no answer,” the investigator said, describing audio from the recorder. “And then he hits the door stronger, and no answer. There is never an answer. You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.” A source close to the investigation gave a similar account to the AFP news agency. An alarm indicating proximity to the ground can be heard before the moment of impact, the source adds. Lufthansa has not named the pilots but it said the co-pilot joined Germanwings in September 2013, directly after training, and had flown 630 hours. Analysis by Richard Westcott, BBC transport correspondent This latest revelation, if true, begins to paint a dramatic picture of the last moments in the cockpit. But there are still plenty of questions to answer. Why did the plane dive? Locked doors don’t make planes crash. Why couldn’t the pilot open the door? There is an emergency procedure that should allow them to get back in. Who was flying? We now know the co-pilot was relatively inexperienced. Was he trying to cope with an emergency on his own? If there really was banging on the door, it might also suggest there was at least air in the cabin, because someone was clearly able to breathe. There had been talk of a depressurisation knocking everyone out. I am surprised such sensitive information has leaked out – again, it’s still not officially confirmed. The rules governing who listens to black boxes are very tight. Only a handful of people are normally allowed into the room when they play the recording back. WE ANSWER THE DHIMMI BBC ALWAYS FULL OF LIES FIRST OF ALL To Remi Jouty and yes of course investigations are thorough and can take much time, as much as is needed. Butthere is a difference between that and secrecy. My conjecture is that such is the righteous consternation in Europe over this atrocity is that there are going to be people inside this investigation who will do the honourable thing and stuff their secrecy. This is what has clearly happened. The report of the first quietly, then hamering and shouting, the horror of that, with passengers worried out of their minds, the plane diving, it is indescribable. That is true. That NY Times report is true and it is going to knock Europe inside out. Pay attention folks! This is it! This is the beginning of the end of the road (if there develops leadership) to dhimmi creps lioke the BBC. So on to Richard Westcott, BBC transport correspondent Westcott seems particularly dense. But it is a particular form of “denseness”. Look at the studied denseness of this dhimmi! And he knows and since he knows he goes actually to the heart of it as far as the dhimmies are concerned. He accuses “Who leaked?” But I realise also he does not live in the real world. In the face of such horror and such cover-up (rememeber we have had Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford and so much else) some people will come forward., I believe that is what has happened. I bet the NY Times report will prove sound. Nothing will be the same again in Europe. This has got big moment for us all!

INTO THE FRAY…4INTERNATIONAL BELIEVES THAT NETANYAHU SAVED ISRAEL IN HIS MARCH 8 CONGRESS SPEECH

Into the Fray: Whew! But…

FELIX QUIGLEY SAYS…

I reprint  this article by Martin Sherman and seek for the widest readership possible because in it Sherman calls for a huge effort by Israel to tell its true story to the world. This will not be a passive undertaking but means confronting A/Muslim Antisemitism, B/World Antisemitism which is wider and sometimes rooted in ancient Christian prejudice and finally C/Left Fascist Antisemitism which is a break from socialist thought of the main socialist but not Anarchist (who were always antisemitic)leaders. In regard to Netanyahu I defend Netanyahu unconditionally against Obama and believe that it was his political fight in Congress on March 8 that saved Israel…

As this comment on Facebook makes clear…

” In my writings I have emphasised how close to disaster was Israel and the world, the disaster being if Left Fascists of Livni and Herzog had teamed up with world Antisemitism and Obama. We have a breathing space thanks to the speech Bibi made in Congress on Mar8. Which is why Martin’s suggestion re the Fishman thesis I intend to take up with all my power. I am disgusted at those who like mere hours later are sticking the knife into Netanyahu. He saved the day. I insist the whole action in Congress not just the speech but courage in going there was what swung the election. I despise Jews who are so disloyal. I am not Jewish but I am not disloyal. I thank Bibi for that March 8 conscious political act. I do not expect Bibi to be what he cannot be. But I defend him always from Obama and from world Antisemitism. By the way I am Trotskyist and non Jewish Irish”

With respect to the people’s choice, if this is in fact its choice, I do not accept it … If that is the choice of the people, the people should be changed
Labor leader Yitzhak Ben-Aharon, on hearing the results of 1977 election in which, for the first time ever, the Labor Party was ousted from power by the Likud, after almost three decades of political hegemony

The unthinkable has been avoided narrowly. Had the election gone the way many had expected, the country would have had a prime minster who, in his own words, believes that “the term ‘Jewish state’ is totally misguided.”

Indeed, against all odds

In his post-election speech to Likud activists late Tuesday night, Benjamin Netanyahu summed up the dramatic events of the last few weeks as “a great victory,” achieved “against all odds.”

This was an accurate assessment, even before later results came in, widening the gap between the Likud and Isaac “Buji” Herzog’s Labor Party, masquerading for the purpose of these elections as the “Zionist Union.” These later results, that confounded pollsters and pundits alike, served only to throw the stunning surprise and the far-reaching significance of the ballot into starker relief.

For Tuesday was indeed a day of grave concern with long hours of deep despondency and anxious apprehension. There were persistent reports of a well-oiled, well-funded left-wing apparatus mobilizing voters, running circles around a disorganized and demoralized Right, which had virtually resigned itself to imminent defeat.

There was a distinct sense that the massive, malevolent and multifaceted blitz against the prime minister, aimed at denigrating, degrading and delegitimizing him, was having an effect, succeeding in alienating the electorate from him.

The grim specter of a Left-led government, eager to embrace or rather re-embrace the disastrously failed policy of political appeasement and territorial withdrawal, which cost so many Israelis life and limb, seemed increasing tangible.

Failed ‘coup d’etat’

Several weeks ago, I wrote a column titled “Coup d’etat?” (February 22), in which I cautioned: “Over the last few weeks, Israeli democracy has been under brutal and sustained attack in a desperate effort to subvert the will of the people… What we are witnessing is, in effect, little less than an attempt at a bloodless coup d’état conducted, not by the military, but by the messianic, indeed manic, mainstream media, buttressed by affiliated like-minded civil society elites, in a frenzied effort to impose their minority worldview on the nation.”

Subsequent events brought home the validity of this assessment, reflecting with almost eerie precision my diagnosis: “Enraged by their inability to rally sufficient public support, on substantive policy issues, to unseat the object of their visceral enmity, Benjamin Netanyahu, and nonplussed by the tenacity of his ‘delinquent’ hold on the premiership, despite their undisguised loathing, his political rivals have despaired of removing him from office by normal electoral means… Rather than engaging in a substantive debate on how to conduct the affairs of the nation, they have embarked on a dishonorable the less charitable might say ‘disgraceful’ attempt to oust a prime minister by means of a maelstrom of petty and pernicious ad hominem attacks…

“Devoid of any persuasive policy alternative of real substance, and of an alternative candidate of authentic stature, Netanyahu’s left-leaning detractors have mobilized to exploit their unelected positions of power and privilege to launch a massive media blitz against him and his wife…”

As it turned out all this malevolence was in vain. The coup d’etat not only failed, but although it is still a little early to be sure, it may have backfired in more senses than one.

Charmed political life? Or cursed?

In many ways, Netanyahu has led a charmed political life. It has also been strewn with many largely self-inflicted curses. Very few political leaders are given a second chance to achieve lasting historic greatness. For some reason, known only to the Goddess of Fortune, Netanyahu has been given three such chances in the past. Each time, he failed to seize the moment.

He has now been given a fourth opportunity and the burning question is whether he will rise to the occasion this time. For it is doubtful whether he will be given a fifth.

Tuesday’s late night’s (or more precisely, Wednesday’s early morning) election results gave Netanyahu his only convincing clear-cut victory at the polls. All his previous wins have been excruciatingly close, with barely hairbreadth margins.

Thus, in 1996, despite the horrific carnage the Oslo Accords brought to the streets, buses and cafes across the country, he only just managed to pip Shimon Peres at the post, after public opinion turned sharply against the Likud, in the wake of the Rabin assassination.

In fact most Israelis went to sleep believing Peres had won, only to wake up to the news that Netanyahu had edged ahead to win by the skin of his teeth.

Charmed or cursed? (cont.)

In 2009, despite the poor performance by the Olmert government, the mismanagement of the Second Lebanon War and the corruption scandals that wracked the Kadima party, Netanyahu still technically lost the election to Tzipi Livni, Ehud Olmert’s successor as head of Kadima, which incredibly emerged as the largest party. It was only Livni’s inability to form a governing coalition that gave Netanyahu the premiership.

It was at the start of his second term that Netanyahu, in his Bar-Ilan speech, took the disastrous step of accepting the principle of Palestinian statehood, which, predictably, instead of easing international pressure on Israel only intensified it. For it confronted Israel with the inevitable dilemma of either forgoing its minimal security imperatives to allow a Palestinian state; or resist forgoing them, making a Palestinian state impossible, thus appearing disingenuous and duplicitous to the international community.

All his display of ill-advised “flexibility” did was to lead Israel into a perilous cul-de-sac from which it could only extricate itself at great cost.

As the 2013 election approached, opinion polls indicated that a decisive Netanyahu/right-wing victory was assured. Yet the Right fared so badly that Netanyahu was barely able to cobble together a shaky coalition, so implausible that an early election was inevitable.

The results of that early election are now in. For the first time, Netanyahu has attained a clear-cut victory miraculously for some, infuriatingly for others but certainly against all odds.

Almost snatched defeat from jaws of victory

For three consecutive elections, Netanyahu has run atrocious campaigns.

In the 2009 and 2013 votes, he was on the cusp of snatching defeat from the jaws of what should have been certain victory. His approach, and that of the Likud, was one of lackadaisical apathy, almost disdain for the voter.

For the last few elections, the Likud did not even bother to present the public with an official party platform, informing it what it was being asked to vote for. “Muddling through” and “managing rather than resolving problems” became, by inference, the hallmark of its policy.

This has had enormously detrimental impact on the nation in profound ways. After all, it is impossible to reach a desired much less a desirable destination, if one does not have one. When this is the perceived posture of the ruling party, the strategic ramifications are gravely enervating.

Regrettably, up until its very last stages, the current campaign was afflicted by much the same malaise. It was only in the final days, when things were looking desperately dire, that Netanyahu harnessed his energies to the electoral effort with considerable indeed, according to numerous pundits decisive effect.

The lesson to be learned from this is both salutatory and instructive as to what steps must be taken to contend with prevailing threats and to meet emerging challenges.

The imminent onslaught

In light of the impact of Netanyahu’s last minute involvement apparently had on the outcome of the election, it is far from implausible to surmise that had he entered the fray (no pun intended) earlier, had the Likud focused more on the substantive message it wished to convey, significantly better results, and considerably more parliamentary seats, could have been won.

It is crucial to bear in mind that with the defeat of the left wing, the danger has in no way passed. Quite the contrary, in numerous ways it has been intensified for many, both in Israel and abroad, are enraged by Netanyahu’s continued tenure on the premiership.

There is little doubt that this will precipitate a massive assault on Israel from both domestic and foreign sources. It will not come from declared enemies and overt adversaries of the Jewish state alone, but from purported supporters and alleged allies, who will use Netanyahu’s reelection as a pretext for abandoning it with feigned reluctance.

They will join forces with Israel’s foes to try and impose their own minority view on the elected government. This is not a prediction as to the future. It is a commentary on what is already under way since Thursday.

There are already flimsily veiled threats from the Obama administration that it will no longer block UN resolutions calling for unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood within the pre-1967 lines. The New York Times predictably dialed up the bile in its Wednesday’s opinion section with a toxic tirade by Israel’s professed friend Tom Friedman and snide threats from an unabashed adversary, Yousef Munayyer.

Detrimental, dysfunctional, disloyal

Having defeated the effort to unseat him, despite opponents throwing everything, perhaps bar the kitchen sink, at him, Netanyahu will become a lightning rod for an assault on Israel’s legitimacy, undermining not only its ability to survive, but its very right to do so.

Dealing with this ominous menace is Netanyahu’s historic challenge one which to date he has been largely remiss in addressing adequately.

In the array of formidable tasks facing him, perhaps the most harrowing, but crucial, will to be to contend with a detrimental, dysfunctional and not infrequently, disloyal, domestic opposition and to do so within the constraints imposed by adherence to the tenets of democratic governance.

For it is difficult to overstate the pernicious impact the actions of many in the disaffected civil society elites in the country have on Israel’s international standing. Although they undoubtedly will protest that they are acting in the country’s best interest, their venom and vilification of what takes place here, often detached from past or present context, is grist for the mill of those who undisguisedly are not.

It is their censure, often unfounded, invariably distorted and unmindful of the consequences, that fans the flames of delegitimization and demonization of the Jewish state.

Historic challenge Political ‘Iron Dome’; intellectual warriors

To meet this historic challenge, considerable resources must be committed.

In this regard, I have been endeavoring for several years to convince the government to assign a mere 1 percent of state budget for a strategic public diplomacy initiative. This would make available $1 billion for the assembling of a political/diplomatic “Iron Dome” to protect the country from the barrages of delegitimization and demonization it is regularly subjected to and which are now likely to intensify (See: “If I were prime minister…,” October 31, 2013; “My billion-dollar budget: If I were PM (cont.),” November, 7, 2013; “Intellectual warriors, not slicker diplomats,” February 14, 2013).

The funds must be allotted for a determined global assault on world opinion particularly but not exclusively on North American and European campuses, which must be won back from the stranglehold of Israel’s detractors. Teams of intellectual warriors not bound by the niceties of diplomatic protocol must be deployed, physically, across the major capitals of the world, and virtually throughout the reaches of cyber-space.

In setting out the mission statement for such an endeavor, Netanyahu could do no better than adopt the sentiments set out by Dr. Joel Fishman, in his aptly titled “The Relegitimization of Israel and the Battle for the Mainstream Consensus” (2012): “If Israel intends to regain its legitimacy, it must advance its historical claims aggressively and forcefully.

The Jewish state cannot permit others to define its identity or distort its past. It is necessary to discredit the fraudulent claims of the other side and expose its lies. Such an effort should include a long-term campaign of relegitimization. Israel must defend its sovereignty and take its rightful place in the community of nations. These are the responsibilities of nationhood.”

This is an increasingly urgent imperative. I urge the prime minister to shoulder it immediately and unflinchingly and to remember, “If you will it, it is no dream.” Even against all odds.

WE TROTSKYISTS OF 4INTERNATIONAL JOYOUSLY SUPPORT THE VICTORY OF NETANYAHU AND ALL JEWISH PATRIOTS

 

This is what has been avoided by the joyous victory in Israel  and on St Patricks day too. If the Left Fascists of Livni and Labour had won then in combination with the evil of Jihad Arab Muslims IN Israel – Fascist dictatorship would have followed and all discussion closed down

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvictory

The Israeli election and victory for Netanyahu is a major positive. There is no doubt that if the Left Fascists Herrzog and Livni had won and then teamed up with the United Arab faction which is now the third largest in a Jewish Israeli Parliament (while Jews are killed in every Arab country and repressed terribly in Iran – what is left of them that is)

 

It is this alliance of Left Fascists inside of Israel and of Jihadist Israel Hating Arabs who have been given a vote and base also inside of Israel that was so dangerous. These moves were being orchestrated against Bibi by Obama who does not really hate so much Bibi as hates Bibi as a representative of Jews and Jewish culture in our world. In other words Obama is an Antisemite. That is what the election defeated.

I referred in a recent article to the reality of world Antisemitism and how the tiny Israeli state was being buffeted by this world Antisemitism. It comes onto the tiny state from the surrounding very wide circle of Muslim Jihad and Jew Hatred, and then in a wider still circle, a world circle, from Christian and Capitalist rooted Antisemitism, with Stalinism and Anarchism thrown into that latter mix as well.

The election over I see the possibilities but these possibilities are also tied up with immediate great dangers. But these dangers are understandable as in the explanation, a Trotskyist and materialist explanation, I gave above. There is no respite from this any more than there was a respite from the Nazis in 1933 to 1945.

Today I do pay tribute to Netanyahu especially to his great spech to Congress on March 8 which focused the minds of many poor people in Israel who realised because of that speech that the poverty and housing problems (undoubted) had to be seen in the context of danger of Nuclear wipeout from Islamic Fascist Iran. It was this that the Left Fascists (note terminology “Left” is not accurate) now well established in Israel behind Labour and Israeli Stalinist type politics of “Peace Now” etc were thus attacking Jews once more in a most dangerous context.

There was also an act of self-sacrifice in that many voters for Bennett switched to Likud and Netanyahu in an action of great intelligence and political sophistication especially by the Jewish homes, families and villages of Judea and Samaria (note 4international never uses the term “settler” and just never ever the term “West Bank”)

We enter a most critical period everywhere in the world and not just in Israel but yes! in Israel. The first thing is discussion and the right to discuss. Just yesterday 8 young protesters were given 3 year jail sentences in the new “democratic” Spain for doing so (just youthful protest) outside of the Catalonian Parliament. There are other great attacks on freedom to discuss in every country. This is above all what has to be defended and this applies very much to Israel also. But if Herzog had won all discussion would have been closed down along the lines and using the stratagems of especially Obama as well as using the brute force of the state as in Spain and the murder of Jews by the Jihadist Muslims.

This is why I appeal to all Jews, to all Israelis, to all Spanish, Irish and all others – it is a time to discuss issues and for the opening of the mind to new possibilities. This is not going to be easy but because we are all being forced by a peculiar crisis to each country and in each country – it does become doable

quote from that article I mentioned above follows:

whatever happens the fire of Jewish national liberation is well and truly alight as secular people and Young, especially young women, flock to Rabin Square last night…israellycool photo

Secular Jews are flocking to support Netanyahu, Bennett and the patriotic side in the election against the traitors Livni and Herzog.

The mass rally last night in Rabin Square was covered by Channel 20 and reported on by the editor of Israpundit Ted Belman in person

But both Ted Belman and Channel 20 both reported amazing facts about the rally. Huge number of secular Jews coming out, travelling long distances from all parts of the Jewish State, to make sure the traitors to the Jewsish cause are defeated and as we said in our last article that they are kept away from state power. In this respect Ted Belman backs up what we said there in that very article. State power is a very serious proposition and issue. Belman noted that the notorious OSLO vote was carried by only ONE vote in the Knesset. But look how many Jewish and indeed Arab lives were lost because of that one vote. It is the combination of Parliament and State Power (latter is a Leninist phrase) that is so telling.

Along with that issue of secular Jews supporting goes a huge number of Young people and especially Young women turning out to support the Jewish and Patriotic side.

Ted Belman reporting on the spot notes on this:

It’s not even 7:30 PM and Channel 20 estimates that tens of thousands of people have already arrived for the rally that only begins at 8PM this evening.

Channel 20 also reports that the rally is filled with secular Jews, and not just religious ones.

Perhaps the issue of secular Jews is the most important fact that has come out of this amazingly important election.”
