A Message of Public Interest

To all the academics, journalists, and other opinion-makers in Israel who say that Israel is a democracy, please enlighten the undersigned by identifying the source from which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu derived the authority to endorse the establishment of any Arab-Islamic state in Judea and Samaria, hence the right to expel, by logical and political necessity, hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes in this heartland of the Jewish people.

On the other hand, if it be said that Israel’s parliament has the authority to enact laws resulting in the expulsion of those Jews, please explain to the undersigned how such laws would not be manifestations of majority tyranny.

Finally, if the Knesset may enact such laws, please explain to the undersigned why academics, journalists, and other opinion-makers boast of Israeli democracy.

оссийская карта: ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона

Перевод Аркадия ГинЕбурга. Translation by Arkadiy Ginzburg.

оссийская карта:
ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона
Пол Ьйдельберг

Не может быть сомнения в том, что 'арак Хуссейн Обама раЕыгрывает мусульманскую карту в ущерб ИЕраилю. Его умиротворение Ирана, эпицентра глобального террориЕма, особенно тревожно для американцев, равно как и для иЕраильтян. Советники Обамы по 'лижнему 'остоку общались не только с Хамасом, иранской марионеткой, но также и с Сирией, террористическим государством. Правительство Обамы помогает сейчас палестинской террористической власти основать военную тренировочную баЕу в Иерихоне. 'Nё это обосновывает отч'т в гаЕете Israel Today от 19 марта 2009 г. Я цитирую:

'ывший глава официального раЕведывательного управления США предупреждает, что администрация Обамы блиЕка к тому, чтобы сломать длительную дружбу Америки с ИЕраилем и, воЕможно, даже предпринять шаги к ликвидации государства ИЕраиль. Говоря на условиях анонимности с Дугласом Хагманном иЕ северо-восточной раЕведывательной сети, этот источник скаЕал: «Администрация Обамы… готовится предоставить больше поддержки арабским странам пут'м финансовой и военной помощи, паралиЕуя оборонительные усилия ИЕраиля и толкая ИЕраиль на уступки давлению необоснованных требований, направленных в конечном сч'те к его политическому уничтожению как нации».

В статье “Sleeping with the Devil” («Сон вместе с дьяволом») бывший агент Ц У оберт 'аэр покаЕывает, что бывшие высокие официальные лица в 'ашингтоне в восторге от финансовых сделок с Саудовской Аравией. Саудовцы побуждают США усилить поддержку палестинского государства. Саудовские нефтедоллары испольЕуются на строительстве мечетей и на покупку влияния в американских университетах. Они вбивают клин между Америкой и ИЕраилем, и Обама ускоряет этот процесс. » Continue reading “ оссийская карта: ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона”

Middle East Rules of Thumb

A review of Middle East Rules of Thumb: Understanding the Complexities of the Middle East—A Handbook by Steven Carol. iUniverse, Inc., New York (2008), publisher.

Middle East Rules of Thumb  is an appropriate title of an extraordinary book authored by historian Professor Steven Carol. This handbook clarifies the complexities of Arab-Islamic history during the past 1,400 years with an array of current facts comprehensible to students even at the high school level. Carol’s book should also be read, however, by college and university students so many of whom are misled by “politically correct” academics and journalists as well as by Arab propagandists.

This reader-friendly volume provides much needed factual data about the Israel-Israeli conflict. It should be on the bookshelves of Hillel Houses and Jewish Community Centers, and it should be brought to the attention of all friends of Israel, so often in need of solid facts to defend the one and only Jewish homeland.

Mushrooms

Molecular biologists contend that man is descended from mushrooms. Believe it. Some mushrooms have evolved into politicians. They flourish in Israel. Ever seen such bland politicians?

Because mushrooms lack chlorophyll, they’re destitute of color, and, like Israeli prime ministers, they crumble under the slightest pressure.

Mushrooms, of course, are fungi, and many reproduce by asexual means. That’s pretty much the case of Israeli politicians: Israel’s system of proportional representation produces an abundance of sterile politicians.

Some mushrooms are deadly. They're called “toadstools.” A weird assortment of such fungi populated Israel's Knesset. The head of the Knesset's most numerous fungi forms Israel's cabinet.

Like a toadstool, with its umbrella-shaped cap, the cabinet caps the most ill-assorted fungi. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been classified as coprinus comatus, the Latin designation of a Horsetail Mushroom. » Continue reading “Mushrooms”

ET From Mars

ET came from subterranean Mars. He landed unseen near the Lincoln Memorial. Read the Gettysburg Address … “Four score and seven years ago …” Went to the Library of Congress. Studied American history to the present day. Saw that America had lost its way, no longer the home of the free and the land of the brave. Saw that cretins and cravens had gained political ascendancy.

Stupefied by “higher education,” Americans were oblivious of their internal enemies. Nor did they know of their most dangerous external enemy—Iran-centered Shia Islam, spreading into Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Gaza, the West Bank. Iran, positioned to turn the spigot off the oil flowing through the Strait Hormuz and thus collapse the West without nuclear weapons. Iran, whose Revolutionary Guard, Shia warriors, spearhead the new Persian Empire. Dedicated—not fanatics like Osama bin Laden—but Machiavellians experienced in asymmetrical warfare, the same that trashed Israel in Lebanon,

ET went to the Middle East. He saw that Shia Iran, which could field one million warriors and control more than 50 percent of the world’s black gold, was too clever, too disciplined, too quiet, too patient, too animated by imperial ambitions to concern itself any longer with suicide bombings.

Quietly it proceeded to convert Sunni Muslims to its cause. Quietly it accumulated more proxies. Quietly, with one fait accomplis after another, it gained more recruits, control of more sources of energy vis- -vis Israel and the United States—two nations whose massive military power in the hands of secularists was nothing compared to the growing and increasingly sophisticated religio-military power of Shia Islam. » Continue reading “ET From Mars”

A Desperate Message

Dear Friends:

Here is an admittedly desperate message.

Please try to make contact, directly or otherwise, with Professor Henry Kissinger and urge him to announce publicly his support of Senator John McCain for President of the United States.

Please do not respond by saying this is far-fetched. Of course, I could mention other notable Americans who know that Barack Obama is not qualified for the office he seeks—as has been said by black ministers who are spreading the truth about the junior senator from Illinois.

I simply ask you to make an effort to get this message to Dr. Kissinger. He certainly knows what is at stake in the November election.

Thank you.
Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Brigitte Gabriel's They Must Be Stopped

Urgent: An unsolicited message.

I have read scores of books on Islam, including several by Bernard Lewis, the dean of Islamic scholarship, but none has so deeply impressed me as Brigitte Gabriel’s They Must Be Stopped (September 2008). This gallant Lebanese-born and now American author and lecturer has an extraordinary mission: to save America and the cherished values of the Judeo-Christian tradition. You can help Brigitte in this mission by reading and promoting her book. Make sure your local bookstores have a goodly supply of this spellbinding book. Recommend it to your PTA and all other organizations to which you belong.

The Report of Rok-19 from Mars

Rok-19 is from Mars. He has been sent to the earth by the Martian Board of Celestial Inquiry. Alights in England day after the 7/7 Muslim terrorist attack in the London tubes. Wonders what this is all about. Goes to Oxford, its great library. Digests one book an hour on Islam: the Quran, Muhammad, the Hadith (Islamic tradition), Saladin, Khomeini, the Islamic Revolution, about the “Great Satan” (America) and the “Little Satan” (Israel).

Decides he must go the US, and Harvard library. Same stuff plus 9/11. Off to Israel and its National Library. Reads about formation of PLO in 1964 (about Arafat and the PLO Charter); about the Six Day War of 1967; about Israel’s policy of “land for peace” leading to the Oslo Agreement of 1993 and the Wye River Memorandum of 1998—and 10,000 resulting Jewish casualties, Reads about unilateral disengagement from Gaza in 2005 followed by rise of Iranian proxy Hamastan and 5,000 Arab missile attacks on Sderot.

Reads about the government’s policy of releasing Arab terrorists—7,000 since 1993, who go on to murder 300 more Jews; how the government arms and pays Arab terrorists and is anxious to withdraw from Judea and Samaria, including eastern Jerusalem. Reads how the policy of land for peace prompts willingness to withdraw from the strategic Golan Heights after 31 years of no conflict with Syria. Comes to the conclusion that Israel’s political elites are: » Continue reading “The Report of Rok-19 from Mars”

Shana Tova

On behalf of the Foundation for Constitutional Democracy, we extend to all our members and supporters, indeed, to all lovers of Israel, greetings and best wishes for a Healthy and Happy New Year. We have reason to believe that the New Year will witness the beginning of serious structural changes in Israel’s System of Governance for which our Foundation has worked so long and so hard. Indeed, we are collaborating with certain politically influential professors in designing, for Israel, a unique presidential system of government, one that should appeal to various party leaders. So, on this positive and promising note, we want to thank all our members and supporters for making the Foundation’s progress possible.

Shana Tova!

Two Cheers

Two cheers for Nathan D. Wirtschafter, a member of the Likud, whose article in The Jerusalem Post (September 11, 2008), “Direct elections begin with the Likud primary” comes close to advocating some of the institutional reform proposals of the Foundation for Constitutional Democracy and of the Yamin Israel Party.

Mr. Wirtschafter calls for “regional elections with single-member districts, a professional cabinet and a new judicial selection system … ”

To propose a professional cabinet is to propose, in effect, separation between the executive and legislative branches of government. The proposed cabinet would then no longer consist of the leaders of rival political parties (one of the root causes of Israel’s malaise). Mr. Wirtschafter could have clarified matters by simply and explicitly calling for a presidential system of government.

Unfortunately, his party leader, Binyamin Netanyahu, in an interview with the Russian Chanel-7, rejected district elections as well as a presidential system of government—and on the most frivolous grounds. As if he never heard of the U.S. House of Representatives and its 435 districts but only two political parties, Netanyahu said that district elections in Israeli would produce sixty political parties! » Continue reading “Two Cheers”
