Electoral Reform—A Public Query

During last month’s Jerusalem Summit, the world renowned Professor Bernard Lewis said, in effect, that democracy in Israel is endangered by the fact that members of the Knesset are not individually accountable to the voters in constituency elections.

Another distinguished professor, who once served as a science adviser to the government, has gone even further. He concluded that “electoral reform in Israel is a necessary precondition for changing the disastrous course of this country.”

The reform in question means nothing less than empowering the people. » Continue reading “Electoral Reform—A Public Query”

The War Against Judaism From Within

A war is being waged against Judaism. The war is being fought on many fronts and by different enemies. But the most dangerous enemy is the government of Israel. Here I leave aside the government’s intention to withdraw from Judea and Samaria and divide Jerusalem.

Israel’s government employs many weapons in its war against Judaism. Dominated by multiculturalists, by merely nominal Jews, the government not only diminished the funding of education for religious education, but also altered the curriculum of public schools to degrade Zionism on the one hand, and to obscure the militant nature of Arab-Islamic culture on the other.

This short-sighted and frivolous government has also adopted policies to facilitate the immigration of gentiles and enable them to obtain “quick-fix” conversions. Even more pernicious is Israel’s Supreme Court, which has imported American jurisprudence to degrade Israel. The court has issued rulings that violate Shabbat and foster homosexuality and gay marriages—rulings that undermine the family, the heart of Judaism. » Continue reading “The War Against Judaism From Within”

For the Record: A Revolutionary Proposal

Tomorrow I leave on a three-week lecture tour of the United States. My primary topic will be “What Can You Do To Save Israel?” Before I leave, let me set the record straight and propose a very modest political revolution.

Back in January 1988, one month after the Shamir government failed to quell the first intifada, I wrote an article in The Jewish Press calling for the establishment of a “government in exile.” As a political scientist who has seriously studied Machiavelli, I harbored not the slightest thought or hope that any prominent person would adopt this far-fetched proposal.

After all, the great Aristotle taught politics is the art of the possible. An impossible proposal is not a political proposal; it nothing more than propaganda, at best having some pedagogical value or intention. I understood quite well that no one would act on my proposal, but that it was worthwhile floating the idea that Israel’s existing government, having failed to secure the lives of its citizens, forfeited its legitimacy and was no longer worthy of public support or loyalty. » Continue reading “For the Record: A Revolutionary Proposal”

The Israel-Egypt “Peace” Treaty

From Jewish Statesmanship: Lest Israel Fall (2000) by
Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Proud of their heritage, Moslems regard … Israel as an outpost of Western decadence. Erasing this state from the map of the Middle East is a political and religious imperative. Although Moslems differ as to how and when this is to be done, their ultimate goal is the same. Anwar Sadat put it this way in an interview with al-Anwar on June 22, 1975: “The effort of our generation is to return to the 1967 borders. Afterward the next generation will carry the responsibility.” Nor is this all.

In a New York Times interview dated October 19, 1980, Sadat boasted: “Poor Menachem [Begin], he has his problems … After all, I got back … the Sinai and the Alma oil fields, and what has Menachem got? A piece of paper.” » Continue reading “The Israel-Egypt “Peace” Treaty”

Oppose the Saudi-Sponsored “Two-State Solution”

An Open Letter to all Jewish Organizations that oppose the Saudi sponsored “two-state” solution to the conflict between the Jews of Israel and the Arabs now occupying Judea and Samaria—Jewish land misleadingly called the “West Bank.”

Please obtain membership lists of the organizations [listed in the article, 14 National Groups Endorse Two-State Solution] that support the Saudi Plan. Send them copies of Dr. Daniel Pipes’ article [see link below] and urge them to denounce and resign from the organizations that support that plan—a plan that cannot but lead to the demise of Israel.

Sincerely,
Prof. Paul Eidelberg, President
Foundation for Constitutional Democracy
Former officer in the United States Air Force

14 National Groups Endorse “Two-State Solution”

Please do not support any of the organizations listed below. Urge organizations such as the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) and Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI) to publicly denounce any so-called Jewish organization that endorses the perfidious two-state solution advocated by Saudi Arabia and every other genocidal Arab regime. The members of the organizations listed below should resign in protest, lest they aid and abet traitors to the Jewish people. To all those who advocate the establishment of an Arab state on Jewish soil, may they suffer ten-fold the miseries of Jews expelled from Gush Katif.—Prof. Paul Eidelberg

JCPA Endorses Two-State Solution

Published: 02/26/2008

The Jewish Council for Public Affairs endorsed for the first time a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

At its annual plenum Tuesday in Atlanta , the body, an umbrella organization representing 14 national Jewish groups and 125 local Jewish community relations councils, resolved that “the organized American Jewish community should affirm its support for two independent, democratic and economically viable states—the Jewish state of Israel and a state of Palestine—living side-by-side in peace and security.” » Continue reading “14 National Groups Endorse “Two-State Solution””

A Dialogue on Revolution

American: You Israelis never cease to amaze me. Since Oslo you have suffered more than 10,000 casualties—Jewish men, women, and children killed, wounded and maimed for life. Yet you do nothing. Your government expelled 10,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza and northern Samaria and turned this land over to your enemies, yet you do nothing. Kassam missiles fall on Sderot and Ashkelon, and still you do nothing! Why haven’t you people rebelled and thrown your cowardly government out?

Israeli: Just a minute. We like to believe Israel is a democracy; so if the public is not happy with the government’s policies, we need only wait for the next election and change the prime minister or party in power.

American: But don’t you see it makes no difference which party or party leader is in power: you are still retreating toward your indefensible 1949 borders. » Continue reading “A Dialogue on Revolution”

No, it is not sending in the IDF with overwhelming force.

Why Anti-Semitism?

Innumerable volumes have been written on anti-Semitism—meaning hatred of Jews and Judaism. After all, it started after Sinai, more than 3,000 years ago. Although we Jews had yet to possess a land or state of our own, Amalek sought to destroy us. Thus it has always been.

Today, anti-Semitism is more virulent and widespread than every before. The extermination of the Six Million was not enough to quench the hatred of Jews and Judaism. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmanidehad, animated by Hitler’s “Final Solution,” vows to destroy Israel, and he is being armed by European technology.

To distract the West from its nuclear weapons program, Iran employs Hezbollah and Hamas to attack Israel. Iran has Hezbollah cells in dozens of countries, including the United States. Iran’s agents preach and train for Jihad. Yet no American politician has the courage to tell the truth about Iran—mankind’s most dangerous and imperialistic enemy. » Continue reading “Why Anti-Semitism?”
