Who goes there ???

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs’ Washington director Hadar Susskind has been recruited into the service of J-Street, the so-called Israel advocacy group funded by George Soros.

Soros and J-Street are best summed up by the paraphrase: ‘With Jews and advocacy groups like Soros and J-Street, why do our enemies need Jimmy Carter and the UN?

Upsetting as it is to hear of such a defection, I found it even more disturbing to read that Mr Susskind served in West Bank and Gaza as a sergeant in the IDF’s famous Givati Brigade.

Surely the very first thing taught for simple guard duty is the principle of IFF?

Identifying friend or foe.

Vanishing Point

Despite umpteen campaign promises by various US presidents and the passing of enabling legislation (see below), the United States has yet to recognise the capital city of the State of Israel by moving its embassy to Jerusalem.

But it does maintain a consulate in Jerusalem.

Sadly this is not for the purpose of recognising the Jewish state – but to help in its erasure. Just as the Muslim Waqf acts to remove all signs of Jewish history from the Temple Mount, the US consulate has purged its Jerusalem website of Israeli or Jewish content.

That was last month’s story, which appears HERE.

Today’s story is about the United States paying for new road signs in the West Bank in English and Arabic ONLY. No Hebrew.

The spokesperson for the US Consulate in Jerusalem, Mindy Masonis, says the new signs will be part of a larger programme aimed at ‘improving conditions’ in the West Bank.

At least we now know more about what America’s “Road Map for the Middle East” is leading to.

Just like the end of that famous car chase movie of the seventies …

Vanishing Point” for the Jewish State.


STATEMENT OF THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES."(1) Jerusalem should remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected. "(2) Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel, and "(3) the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.

Just WHO are you kidding Mr Obama ?

President Obama’s Ramadan message of today:

“Ramadan is a time of intense devotion and reflection - a time when Muslims fast during the day and perform tarawih prayers at night, reciting and listening to the entire Koran over the course of the month.

These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings”




Dignity of all human beings????

From JC to NF

The Jewish Chronicle called me last week in my capacity as chairman of Likud-Herut in the UK. They were asking me and other community leaders what we would tell Israeli PM Netanyahu if we had the opportunity to put ‘a word in his ear’ during his upcoming visit to Britain.

They printed my following response on their front page, along with some choice quotes from other (mostly left-leaning) community leaders:

I said: “Neither Britain nor the EU has any moral authority to tell you and
Israel how to run its defence and other matters. I live in Britain and we’re in
a complete mess. But Israel’s economy and stock market are doing well. Not a
single bank has collapsed. Every day I read about new medical discoveries, so
you should not pay too much attention to the likes of Mr Miliband and the other
EU leaders. You should keep doing what is in the best interests of Israel and
its people

It didn’t take long for the fascists to seize on this. The white supremacist ‘Stormfront’ blog thought I was typical of ungrateful Jews dissing the host countries in which they’ve thrived.

So, let me say: I’m not ungrateful. Quite to the contrary. It’s because I genuinely care for the country which took my parents in as refugees from Nazi Europe that I am so terribly sad to see it fall from grace and decline into such a complete mess.

It has lost much of its national identity, sovereignty and prestige to the monolithic bureaucracy of the EU. All that seems to be left is the pound sterling … and that won’t last very much longer either. The EU apparatchiks who keep pumping out daft statutes every other month are of the same ilk as our home-grown busybodies who have bankrupted the National Health Service with the burden of employing as many bean-counters and rule-makers as there are nurses and doctors. They’ve paralysed the police service with political correctness and paperwork and turned our local councils into a laughingstock with their strict policing of garbage bins.

These are the same nitwits who pressed for the lifting of restrictions on pub opening times resulting in Britain having the highest rate of youth drunkenness in Europe. We also have the highest rate of unwanted teenage pregnancies. And our immigration and border controls are in such a mess that the last interlopers hitched a ride from Calais on a Home Office vehicle.

All this taken together brings the assurance of an explosion in crime in the UK. And without a single spare jail cell in the country, all the government can do is let villains back on the streets and to fake the crime figures, year after year.

Our own mother of parliaments has seen its most successful and longest-serving prime minister of modern times literally hounded out of office in the middle of his 3rd term by a treacherous cabal of Labour MPs salivating for high office as a reward for promoting brooding George Brown to the premiership. The resulting motley ministerial line-up in Brown’s cabinet is simply too embarrassing to look at. Take the now disgraced and ousted frump Jacqui Smith and compare her to former Home Secretaries like Willie Whitelaw, Roy Jenkins, Jim Callaghan, Merlin Rees and Reggie Maudling and you can see just how steeply the standards in high offices of state have nosedived.

But for me, worst of all, was to see returning British soldiers being spat at and abused by a bunch of Jihadist immigrants in Luton. And then being protected by the police in doing so. These are the same police who were chased down Pall Mall by a rabid mob of ranting Islamists demonstrating against someone’s war on their terror.

This is not about racism or xenophobia. It’s about simple decency. It’s about right and wrong. And if our laws – or those that have been thrust upon us by the EU - prevent us from doing what’s right and decent, then Britain has simply lost the plot.

So, yes – it’s in a mess.

And nobody’s sorrier than I am.

As the good book says.....

This news report caught my eye:

( At least 20 Syrian civilians were killed and 60 were wounded in a failed missile test in May, Japan's Kyodo News reported Friday. The test involved two updated Scud missiles developed together by Syria, North Korea and Iran. Both exhibited defective guidance systems, according to a Middle Eastern military source quoted in the report.

No prizes for guessing the ultimate working target for those Scud missiles.
Which only bears out the words of King David ...

'Behold, the Keeper of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps'
Psalm 121:4
