It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Foreign Arabs Buy Land In Galilee

In a sign that could portend the future for Israel under Bibi's dumbass Israel Land Administration Reform Act, hundreds of dunams of land were sold to wealthy Arab investors from countries with no diplomatic ties to Israel. In an attempt to prevent the sale, Galilee farmers tried to raise the money themselves to pay for the land and keep it in Israeli hands. They were unable to do so and now our lands are being sold to the highest bidder, even to those who have long prayed for Israel's destruction.

This is what opponents to Bibi's Israel Land Administration reform bill fear; that Israeli public lands will end up in the hands of foreign Arab nationals or their agents. The Finance Ministry released a document explaining the bill, and that mechanisms would be in place to prevent this from happening. And if the Israeli government was not rife with corrupt scumbag idiot douches such a document would allay my concerns. But it is, so it doesn't. Arab front companies could be formed in Israel that could buy land. I wonder who is going to be policing these sales, and what makes anyone think they won't be bribed to look the other way?

The bill passed earlier this month.

Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely, a Zionist whom I consider to be one of the only people in the Knesset who could potentially lead Israel out of its political muck and insanity, had initially been against the bill. She ended up voting for it, making the following statement:

"I chose to support the reform on the basis of a personal promise that was given to me to establish a ministerial committee that will add amendments into the bill in order to ensure that the reform will not harm the values of the country as a Zionist state, and so that the land will not fall into the hands of foreigners. The prime minister committed to the statement that there will be no further privatizations."

It had been rumored that Bibi, who hand picked her to run for a Likud seat, would strip her of her chairship of the Knesset Women's Affairs Committee. But his spokesman denied this. Bibi did make clear however that any cabinet officials who failed to support the bill would be fired. And so Hotovely has set herself up to be tested. I have looked upon her favorably. She is a religious Jew who has openly expressed her Zionism and support of Yesha. If Bibi fails to meet his promises to her will she quit and help bring him down, or will she quietly go along and join the ranks of the useless politicians that wander the Knesset taking bribes and compromising Israel? Only time will tell.

This is what happens when the nation of Israel is led by someone in the Knesset's big chair who does not understand the nature of the bond between HaShem and Am Yisrael that the land of Israel represents. Bibi Netanyahu clearly does not. The question is, will his nationalism be enough?

the zionist "left" founded the state, the "right" will destroy it even faster than the global warming melts the ice ...and I can imagine Arafat smiling in his grave ...since the murder of Ythak Rabin, this country just gets apart under the weight of lies and endless stupidities...
and the people loves that ...

If by the "right" you mean Bibi forcing this bill down Likud's throat then you mistake Bibi for being on the right. He's been co-opted by the left, and has been ever since Chevron. Think about who helped him get this bill passed...Ehud Barak.

The real right...the Jewish nationalists...can still save Israel. The people are behind them. It's coming. The question is, will it happen before it's too late?
