The Tea Party Movement that is doing its best to change the political landscape in America (don't rest on your laurels after Tuesday folks...you've got a tiger by the tail putting the Republicans back in power...the new boss is the same as the old boss unless we keep the pressure on) has turned up in the one place in the world that may be suffering from Obamanism almost as much as the good ol' U.S. of A...Israel.
Since taking office the Jew Hater in Chief has made it known that he believes that Israel only exists as a reward to the Jews for surviving the Holocaust, not because it has been the homeland of the Jewish people for almost 4000 years. He has made it clear that he wants Israel to give up the heartland of the Jewish people to the Falacstinian terrorists whose TV, radio, newspapers and schools have already raised the next generation of Jew haters, and is now pushing the ludicrous notion that we should cede Judea and Samaria to these genocidal murderers and then lease our neighborhoods and cities, including Jerusalem, from the them.
Well, it seems that Israelis are so fed up that the have embraced the Tea Party, and threw their first. Hosted by former and current members of the Likud, the Israeli tea party is sending a message to Odummy that Israel is a sovereign nation that holds its own elections. The people voted for a party whose platform is against the creation of an Arab state on Jewish land, against freezing construction of Jewish communities, and they don't want some big eared, pencil-necked moron who couldn't even manage to write one article for the Law Review that he supposedly edited, telling them where they can live or how many babies they can have (by the way Zero, it appears that in the past six months the Jewish population in Yesha has grown by 7200, three times the national average in all of Israel...I bet that really chaps what little ass you have).
The Israeli Tea Party is also making it known to Bibi that it would be in his best interests to stop taking dictation for Little Lord Fraudleroy, whose hate by Israelis is nearly universal, and remember why he and his party were elected in the first place.
Welcome to the Tea Party Israel. The water's fine.

In a move that shreds the chutzpah envelope UNESCO, the United Nations' Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization has declared that Kever Rachel, Rachel's Tomb, is not the tomb of Rachel Imanu, one of the four matriarchs of the Jewish people, but a mosque. UNESCO also condemns the inclusion of the Cave of Machpelah, where Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, and Jacob are buried, on a list of Jewish heritage sites.
Kever Rachel, which is holy only to the Jewish people as Rachel has no relation to Islamic doctrine in any capacity, has recently been called the Bilal Bin Rabah Mosque, apparently named after the third convert to Islam, as if we care. This title has only been used since 2000. Prior to this time it has been universally known by Jews, Christians, and Muslims as Rachel's tomb. The only explanation for UNESCO's legitimizing the Falacstinian mosque lie is to delegitimize the Jewish claim to not only these holy places, but to all of Judea and Samaria.
Since liberating Judea and Samaria, Israel has guaranteed access to all holy places to all religions. Jewish holy sites that ended up in Falacstinian controlled areas as a result of the Oslo farce were often closed off to Jews or, as in the case of Joseph's tomb in Shechem, were ransacked and vandalized.
Bibi Netanyahu called UNESCO's move "absurd," stating:
“If the places where the Jewish nation’s forefathers and mothers – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel – were buried 4,000 years ago is not part of the Jewish nation’s heritage, then what is a heritage site?”
An excellent question. So what is the solution? Frankly, it is simple. Ultimately the Torah teaches us that we may not permit the worship of foreign gods in the Land of Israel. It is not enough to call these places Jewish heritage sites. We must have absolute control over them, and the municipalities in which they stand. It also means that, despite what would undoubtedly be worldwide condemnation, Muslims should no longer have free access to any of these places. If Muslims are to be allowed to go there at all, which they should not, let them come in armored buses at a time chosen for them instead of Jews having to arrive with military escort, but do not let them pray there, just as Jews are banned from praying on the Temple Mount.
How does Israel cement this decision, by once and for all declaring that there will no longer be any negotiations for the creation of an Arab state on Jewish land followed by a declaration of war against the illegal Arab occupation armies of the PLO and Hamas. When the terror entities are destroyed the remaining Arabs can choose to accept resident alien status or leave.
Of course, the first step that must be taken is to rid the government of PLO MKs from the Knesset and the abolition of Arab political parties whose allegiance is not to Jewish Israel. The Knesset has banned Jewish parties so it shouldn't have a problem banning Arab parties. Any political parties, be they Jewish or Arab, that continue to call for the creation of an Arab state on Jewish land should also be banned. Torah and democracy are mutually exclusive. It's time we stopped pretending that this is not the case.
But don't think that the Arabs/Muslims and their UN tools are the only ones on the delegitimization bandwagon. The Catholic Church is getting on board too.
In a move reminiscent of the pre-Vatican II days, when the Holy See could still openly declare the Jews the killers of Jesus (I can assure you that this was still being taught in the Catholic Archdiocese where I grew up thirty-something years ago), Pope Benedict XVI called a Synod to discuss the plight of Christians in the Middle East. At a Vatican press conference the president of the "Commission for the Message," Monsignor Cyril Salim Bustros declared:
The Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.
We Christians cannot speak of the ‘promised land’ as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people. This promise was nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people – all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people.
Even if the head of the Israeli state is Jewish, the future is based on democracy.
The Palestinian refugees will eventually come back and this problem will have to be solved.”
There is so much inherently wrong and racist about that statement it is hard to know where to begin. It is quite clear that, despite Vatican II, so-called succession theology is alive and well in the Catholic Church. This is the notion that Jesus replaced the covenant between the G-d of Israel and the Jewish people. For nearly 2000 years this idea was at the center of Catholic doctrine, and made the Church nearly irrelevant when the Jewish people regained sovereignty over the Land of Israel in 1948. Until then it was taught that the Jews were never to return to the Land of Israel, as G-d no longer had a covenant with Israel. The final blow came in 1967 when the IDF liberated Jordanian occupied Jerusalem.
Clearly the Monsignor has no grasp of a number of Jewish concepts. The first is the notion of the Jews as the "Chosen People." This is a duel reference. HaShem sanctified Israel as His people when He entered into the covenant with Abraham:
1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him: 'I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be thou wholehearted. 2 And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.' 3 And Abram fell on his face; and God talked with him, saying: 4 'As for Me, behold, My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for the father of a multitude of nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.' 9 And God said unto Abraham: 'And as for thee, thou shalt keep My covenant, thou, and thy seed after thee throughout their generations. 10 This is My covenant, which ye shall keep, between Me and you and thy seed after thee: every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of a covenant betwixt Me and you. 12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any foreigner, that is not of thy seed. 13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised; and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
So, an everlasting covenant that sanctifies the nation of Israel to be His people, and promises the land of Canaan to Israel forever. So, Monsignor, is the G-d of Israel a liar? Go ahead and say it...if you have the nuts.
The other meaning behind "Chosen People" is that we accepted the Torah. We are told that before HaShem offered the Torah to Israel He brought it to every other nation so that in future days they could not say, "You never gave us the chance to accept the Torah because you did not offer it to us." At last HaShem appeared to the Israelites at Sinai, offering the yoke of Torah. Israel accepted without even knowing the details. We chose to enter into the covenant as a nation, when no one else would. But a Bishop of the Catholic Church has decided to attempt to undo what G-d has done, in the name of politics.
Bishop Bustros almost gets one thing right when he says that all men and women have become the chosen people. In truth, everyone has the ability to be chosen, to choose. If they choose to accept the yoke of Torah and enter into the covenant of Israel then they are part of the covenant. See your local Orthodox Rabbi for details. I know a lot of people who have chosen to do so.
Bustros also falsely states that the future of Israel is democracy. The future of Israel is Torah, though I guess he thinks that HaShem's Prophets are also liars. And no, the Falacstinian refugees will not be coming back. Even the outgoing director of the New York UNRWA office has recently stated that the Arab countries need to finally absorb these people, just as Israel absorbed the 1,000,000 Jews that were driven out of Arab countries.
So once again the world tries to cut the Jewish people off from our land and our G-d. The only answer is for us to strengthen our connection to both and tell the Synod, and the Pope who called it, and who has failed to condemn Bustros' statement, to go blow.

18 Chesvan marked the 20 years since the slaying of Rabbi Meir Kahane (may G-d avenge his blood!) by an Arab terrorist in New York City. Since his death, much of what he warned us about has come to pass. The Peres/Rabin Oslo scheme sold the world the lie that Jewish land should be given to the Ismaelites in order to gain "peace" with a people who have dedicated the last 100 years to actively attempting to kill as many Jews as possible in the Land of Israel. The wrongfully returned Sinai peninsula deal with Egypt, another stupid mistake made by a man who knew better, set the stage for the fiasco we are currently experiencing.
For the record, more than 1500 Jews have been killed as a direct result of the Oslo lie. If more Jews in Israel had listened to Kahane and not fallen for the "land for peace" lie, or internalized a false sense of shame for returning to and liberating our land from foreign occupation which, considering the historical, political, and military circumstances can only be considered the great nais (miracle) of our time, then perhaps there would not be so many of us around the world with our heads in our hands mourning our dead, who continue to fall without so much as a peep from the Jew hating bigot in the White House, or from his cadre of racist liars at the Department of Hate.
[Blog timeout for a public service announcement: It is vital not only to the security of every Jew everywhere, but to every American, that the Democrat party be removed from power in Congress. Unless there is a political check against the Executive...one of the few straws we have left on limiting this putz's power...Israel's security will continue to be readily and eagerly subverted by the government of the United States, despite the fact that, overwhelmingly, Americans support Israel, and are against the creation of an Ishmaelite state on Jewish land. America, you should know that while the White House kowtows to the jihad, Israel stands virtually alone in a war that cannot be lost. It is up to the American citizen to join the war against the Ishmaelite campaign of delegitimization against Israel. I firmly place my faith in HaKadosh Borachu that Americans are waking up. Throw the bums out and sleep a little easier...at least for a little while. If you're a Jew and vote like a pavlovian dog for a democrat you may be beyond hope. We'll see about having your foreskins returned.]
I will not eulogize Rabbi Kahane further accept to say that his limitless love for the Jewish people, the Land of Israel, and the G-d of Israel, was matched only by his desire to end the shedding of Jewish blood. Too many have died at the hands of the Ishmaelites since his passing, and every single Jew in Israel who has been killed by them has died because of the failure of the government of Israel to act on what Kahane knew to be true. This is not because Israeli politicians fail to see the threat. It is because they fail to accept Torah truth. B"H, that time is coming to an end.
After watching this video you will never again question why Eretz Yisrael is ours, why we cannot and will not surrender it, and what Torah has to say about our relationship to it. Barry, Hillary...sit your asses down, get educated, and stop wasting your time attempting to undo what you cannot possibly comprehend. The G-d of Israel is above your pay grade.

For the benefit of Arab cameras, Arab boys in Jerusalem throw stones at Jewish drivers. While the media is circulating photos taken by said Arabs of the Jew driving his car to hit the stone throwers, the video tells the real story. The boys were struck by the car after the driver swerved to avoid them. It is quite clear that they intentionally ran in front of the moving car, presumably to get a better shot at hitting the driver with their stones. The more likely story is that at the behest of the photographers, or their PA ringleaders, they got close to the car in order to provide dramatic photos to show the world how the Jews supposedly treat them.
It's an old ploy. The most famous case took the life of Rachel "Latkes" Corrie, who went to her death for the benefit of Arab terrorists. Whether it be human shields, or stunts like this, Arabs seem to have no qualms putting children in harm's way in order to broadcast false allegations about Jewish brutality. The sad part is that too many people are so stupid, or so racist, that they fail to see the truth, even with irrefutable evidence like this video.
From the smashed rear window of the car it should be clear to anyone that had the driver stopped he would have been putting himself, and his son who was with him, in grave danger. Who remembers the incident depicted in the photo below? Two Israeli soldiers wandered into an Arab area and were torn to pieces by a mob of Arabs. They kill Jews when they can, and bathe themselves in our blood.
Sure, let's give these people a state in the Jewish heartland as soon as possible...are you kidding me?
Meanwhile, instead of arresting the rock throwers the driver, David Be'eri, was detained by police for questioning. Nice. The incident involving Be'eri took place the day after an Arab mob attacked a Jewish repairman after completing a service call in an Arab neighborhood. The Israeli police refused to enter the neighborhood to help him. Instead he got out with the help of Arab elders there. No one from the Israeli police is getting hero of the month award anytime soon.
B"H Be'eri and his son lived to tell the tale, in spite of the fact that the world will most likely not believe the truth.

Bibi Netanyahu has asked his ministers to approve an amendment to the Citizenship Act that would demand all new citizens declare their allegiance to a "Jewish, democratic" Israel, further cementing the fact that the modern state of Israel, the reborn national home of the Jewish people that existed more than 1000 years before Islam, is Jewish in character, and legality. This will no doubt cause a great many people get their undies in a bunch, but I think that it's about time.
When the land on both the west and east banks of the Jordan River was set aside by the League of Nations, with Arab approval, it was done say as a mandate for recreating the national home of the Jewish people...not for just anybody, but for Jews. When the British, who were made the custodians of this land, lopped off two-thirds of it to create a fiefdom for the Hashemite tribe which we now call Jordan, but is in fact "Palestine," the remaining land west of the Jordan, including the "disputed territories" which are Judea and Samaria, was still meant to be for the Jewish people. When the Arabs west of the Jordan began massacring Jews and killing British soldiers, their terrorism was rewarded with the idea that the remaining land would be partitioned between Arabs and Jews. The Arabs rejected it, but the Jews accepted it. This being the case, when the United Nations voted to partition the land it was voted that part would be the national home of the Jewish people, which became Israel. The remainder was left unclaimed by the Arabs and then illegally occupied by Jordan.
Let's stop here for a moment and review. Israel was created by the UN to be a Jewish state, period. The fact that Arabs were allowed to remain there was solely at the behest of the Jews. Nonetheless it is, under international law, a Jewish state. All the whining by Arabs and liberal weenies who call Zionism racism can suck eggs. Israel is a Jewish state, for this state to demand new citizens declare their loyalty to this idea is not racist, it's simply common sense.
Let's briefly come back to that land illegally occupied by Jordan for a minute. When Israel crossed the 1949 armistice line into what is commonly called the "west bank," it did so defensively in response to shelling from the Jordanian army in 1967, despite Moshe Dayan begging King Hussein not to attack. All lands taken in that defensive action now have legitimate title to Israeli sovereignty. It is not an occupation. The Arabs rejected partition. Jordan illegally seized it when they invaded Israel in 1948. Israel holds clear title. One of these days the ruling government will realize this and end this nonsensical talk about creating another Arab terror state west of the Jordan.
Anyway, all of this brings us to this proposed amendment. What is this really about? Very simply, it is about chopping off the Arab proposal of "right of return" for Arab refugees who fled Israel at the time of its creation, and before, as well as cementing the notion that this land is the homeland of the Jewish people. Right of return for Arabs is not going to happen, and it's about time that the Arab world accepted it. But what of the Arabs in Israel?
Well, the Arabs in the Knesset are whining and crying racism, of course. Never mind that this amendment does not demand that existing citizens make this oath, only new ones. They are whining anyway. MK Ahmed Tibi, who should be deported for his loyalty to the PLO, declared:
"It is meant to cement the Arabs' inferior class status by law. No amendment will be able to negate the Palestinian narrative, which has been recognized worldwide."
Hey Ahmed, the Falacstinan narrative is a lie, and the only people who don't see this are ignorant, racist dupes who hate Jews and refute the overwhelming evidence that there was never an Arab nation called "Palestine," and that, when offered such a nation by the UN, and later Israel...on multiple occasions, the Arabs rejected it. The fact that the idea is revisited every few years is only due to international Jew hate, and the Stockholm Syndrome from which so many Israeli politcians suffer.
An Arab resident of Umm al Fahm, Abed al-Latif said:
"loyalty is not guaranteed by law, but by conduct. The Arabs have proven their loyalty to their Israeli citizenship throughout the years, and want to be part of Israeli politics and economy."
True, there are Arabs who have been loyal and model citizens, but I wonder if al-Latif, if asked, would proudly stand and sing the Israeli national anthem's words, "The soul of the Jew yearns..." I'm guessing probably not. And certainly the Arab Israelis who consider the creation of Israel to be the "Nakba," the "catastrophe," would not do so either. This being the case I would take this amendment a step further to demand that all current citizens make the same oath. If they are loyal to their Israeli citizenship, citizenship to what is recognized by UN Resolution 181 as a Jewish state, then they shouldn't have one word of complaint. Some how I'm guessing that wouldn't be the case.
