The Israeli public voted for Likud and other right wing parties (it should be remembered that Likud did not end up with more seats than Kadima because of Bibi's manhandling of Moshe Feiglin) because of their stance on the Jewish communities in Yesha. Likud promised building. Likud promised there would be no expulsions. Leftist tool Shimon Peres understood the will of the people, and the fact that the crushing blow dealt to Labor meant there was no way Kadima was going to build a coalition. Bibi got to form the government.
And then along comes Barry...
His empty head is not as sweet as the punch...
Yes, Marack demands a settlement freeze and Bibi loses all resolve like a little boy being rousted for lunch money who is then stuffed in his locker, only to be found days later contorted and smelling like his own wee wee.
Sure, he sounded tough at Bar Ilan, consenting to the notion that there could be a Falacstinian state, if they consented to a series of extraordinarily reasonable demands that they will never agree to because Fatah/Hamas/PFLP/PLO/XYZ/PDQ would rather kill Jews.
But zounds! What yonder beast arises from the waters...It's Carp Face Mitchell with his settlement freeze demands. Bibi quakes at Carp Face's foul stench and engages in a juggling act of acting like he's not freezing when he is; being tough, when he's not.
But the true believers in Israel are rising. Some names you know, like Moshe Yaalon and Benny Begin. Others are newer like Beitarnik Danny Danon, and Knesset Rookie of the Year Tzipi Hotovely, who has already butted heads with Bibi, the closeted leftist, at least twice this year, and seems to be lining up to do so again (I love her, she rocks!). And let's not forget the scrappy, bespectacled Moshe Feiglin who has a vision of a Jewish state that's actually Jewish, not this leftist commie bullcrap that has never actually won a war, just consented to a lot of ceasefires that left our enemies still thirsting for Jewish blood.
Then Bibi went to London and now strange things are happening.
Bibi is making these strange sounds. First he says that Israel will not accept limited sovereignty in Jerusalem, and that it is not a settlement.
Now, contrast this with what Dan No Spine Meridor told Der Speigel, according to A7. Although the Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall would always be in Jewish hands, other parts of Jerusalem were up for negotiation with the PA. This ass then went on to say that Israel has no religious claim on Jerusalem.
No, you did not read that incorrectly. Dan Meridor, the acting Deputy Prime Minister said:
The previous pope (John Paul II) said that Jerusalem is sacred to all religions but was promised to one people. We have no religious claim on Jerusalem; we have a national one. Jerusalem is our capital,” Meridor said.
This is why we have ceasefires instead of victories. This is why Israel continues the charade of a peace process with genocidal entities that should never ever be allowed to have control of one micron of Jewish land. No religious claim to Jerusalem? That's the whole fracking point of Jerusalem you stupid uncircumcised douche eating buttfaced donkey! Without it's religious purpose, without the desire to see the return of the Shechina, Jerusalem has no purpose. Just give it all to actual Jews, those of us who love Ir David and all she stands for and then move to Venezuela and make love to Chavez Mr. Meridor. You make me puke. Really...buckets of vomit. I'm physically sick.
All in favor of reattaching Meridor's foreskin say "Aye!" Go live with Abbas you scumbag.
But Likud members defiance grows. Arutz 7 reports that Danny Danon is sharpening his butt kicking shoes.
Growing rebellion in the Likud party against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reported concessions to US President Barak Obama. Next week a meeting is planned of Likud Central Committee members, MKs and Ministers opposed to Netanyahu’s freeze on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria.
One of the leaders of the rebellion, Likud MK Danny Danon, says there is no way that the Likud should be implementing opposition party Kadima’s platform. “We must keep our promise to our voters to build in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria,” said Danon. “The Prime Minister knows very well that there is no real partner for peace with the Palestinians.”
Back in Europe Bibi says that settlements are not the impediment to peace...no kidding! He says that settlements are a territorial issue that can be negotiated. The real problem is the PA not recognizing Israel as a Jewish state.
Then we hear that Education Minister Gideon Saar has a plan for upgrading the curriculum for Israel's schools. For 2010 he wants grades 5-9 incorporating the subject of "Jewish Tradition and Culture." Subjects that would be covered would include the Jewish connection to the land of Israel, leaders, symbols, and values reflecting Zionism and Judaism...can you believe that isn't taught now? If that sounds like something Moshe Feiglin would say, you are correct. Though I think these subjects should not be limited to grades 5-9, it is at least a start.
Now let's add this to the mix. National Union MK Michael Ben-Ami attacked Likud as being the only party that could say it's right wing but actually be left-wing; freezing construction in Yesha under pressure from the US in order to get assistance with essentially useless sanctions against Iran:
“Claims that the only way we can get sanctions against Iran is by freezing Jewish construction is all lies. There is absolutely no connection between the two. We must tell the world the Iranian problem is their problem and we are not willing to commit suicide by handing over Judea and Samaria to our enemies. Freezing construction is the first step in destroying the Jewish towns of Yesha.”
That's exactly what I've been saying. First the freeze. Then expulsion. It's going to take more than just rebellious Likud MKs to stop this. Other coaltion parties are going to step up. I wonder if they will unite behind the Manhigut Yehudit? Moshe Yaalon has certainly made his feelings known.
Bibi is coming to the fork in the road. He can no longer make Little Lord Fraudleroy and the hard-line true believers in Likud, and the parties to Likud's right all happy. He must choose.
With the true believers rapidly moving to get their ducks in a row should Bibi fail to stand up, completely rejecting the freeze and negotiations with the genocidal Falacstinian Authority, and Marack potentially getting ready to try and force the issue at the UN in September, Bibi can no longer hide.
His latest round of talks with Carp Face have yielded an agreement to meet some more. At this rate, Bibi is going to stall himself into political oblivion. If he won't stand up for what the Israeli public wants: continued growth in Judea and Samaria, and the rejection of a Falacstinian state west of the Jordan River, then the sooner he's gone, the better. His best bet is to hear his MKs, and the will of the Israeli public. They support Yesha. They are against Marack. They are against negotiating with the PA.
With whom will Bibi side, besides himself? Stay tuned.
