The Atlantic magazine has just released a chronological photo history of World War II, beginning with the days when storm clouds had gathered in the early and mid-1930s.

One of the magazine's most vivid pictures depicts Neville Chamberlain in 1938 greeting the English media. The British Prime Minister's plane had just landed near London, following Chamberlain's meetings with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in Munich, Germany.

"Peace in our time," Chamberlain boasted to newsmen after the fateful meeting on September 28, 1938. What's more, thousands of his countrymen truly believed him.

The United Kingdom's leader was referring to what was to be known as "The Munich Agreement between England, France, Germany and Italy. To realists, it was notorious as the re-definement of "appeasement."

After taking power in Germany in 1933, the Nazi Chancellor violated treaty after treaty until 1938 when a World War II seemed a distinct possibility. In fact it appeared so imminent that Chamberlain felt obliged to meet Hitler and, once and for all, hammer out an agreement that would calm fearful nations such as Poland, France and Czechoslovakia, each of which watched Germany fiercely re-arm.

Chamberlain's idea of maintaining "peace" was to give away a portion of Czechoslovakia called the Sudetenland, which Hitler had demanded.

So, what was the response. The British leader, along with his wobbly French counterpart, Edouard DaDladier, arbitrarily handed to Germany a well-fortified Czech province that was protected by one of the finest armies confronting the Nazis. Military analysts believe that if the Germans ever attacked the Czech border, they would have been repulsed by the military and natural fortifications.

The brave Czechs were willing to go to war against Hitler if necessary.

But the English-French "allies" did not even have the decency to invite the Czech leader, Eduard Benes, to the Munch meeting. Clearly, Chamberlain and Daladier wanted no part of Benes because they knew he would oppose any attempt at appeasement.

The Brits should have known better. Hitler already had shown his cards when he annexed Austria in February 1938 after earlier violations of the Treat of Versailles. Furthermore, English spy Hugh Christie -- based in Berlin -- informed the English government that German generals, fearful of Hitler's super-aggressive tactics, planned to overthrow the fuhrer if Chamberlain would forcefully support the Czechs.

But Hitler -- along with his Italian counterpart Benito Mussolini, who also signed the Munich Agreement -- had intimidated and conned the two allies. They were bullied by his bluster, blinded to what he had done to Austria and naive enough to believe that by putting their signatures to a piece of parchment, it would make everything hunky-dory in the world.

For Chamberlain, reality set in a mere six months after he left Berlin. In March 1939, the Munich Agreement was tossed in the round file as Nazi troops -- unprovoked -- marched into Prague, annexing Czechoslovakia with only variations on the manner in which Austria was put in Hitler's pocket.

Thus, Chamberlain's "Peace In Our Time" period of calm enjoyed a September 1938 through March 1939 shelf life and before Summer had ended the Nazis were marching into Poland, igniting World War II.

What does this have to do with Israel?


For starters, let's turn the calendar back to 1993 and the Oslo Accords. Shimon Peres became Israel's Neville Chamberlain to the Palestinian Authority's Yassir Arafat.

In many ways, Oslo was as bad as Munich because it had the sinister aspect of only one unrepresentative group of Israeli doves attempting to appease the Arabs. Like the Czech's Benes being outlawed from Munich, the Israeli non-appeasers were kept out of Oslo. In some ways it was remniscent of a Hitler putsch.

The Arabs "Little Hitler," Arafat, was no less deceptive than the fuhrer and Peres, Inc. learned that lesson after a pair of intifadas, among other destructive indignities.

Or did Peres ever learn that lesson? One wonders.

Now we hear that Israel's President -- whatever that means -- is having secret talks with Arab (alias Palestinian) negotiator Saeb Erekat. We're also told that they are "going over maps" in an effort to determine how the land must be reconfigured if a peace pact is to be blueprinted.

We can love Shimon Peres for a lot of things, starting with his primary role in developing Israel's (shhh!) atomic arsenal. But that does not mean that the indomitable politician should be permitted to do another "Munich" on Israel like the one that happened in Oslo.

Nor should we overlook the most important fact that the very clever Erekat represents the PA which, at last look, was not spelled Hamas.

Compared to Hamas, the PA only appears more moderate but the Palestinians embrace several factions including some of the more violent groups in the world.

Erekat's predecessors, including onetime PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, have one priority above all; they want to wipe out Israel the way Hitler effectively erased Czechoslovakia. And if it means signing some useless piece of paper, that would be just the beginning of the beginning of the end of Israel. Check out the following statement once uttered by Muhsein and you'll see what I mean:

"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means of continuing our struggle against the State of Israel for our Arab unity. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism.

"For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

Benjamin Netanyahu is aware of the no-longer-secret Peres-Erekat meetings. Bibi knows that the Arabs still refuse to acknowledge Israel as the Jewish State.

Bibi knows a lot about Oslo, not to mention Munich, Adolf Hitler and Neville Chamberlain.

He's well aware that to appease the Arabs -- not to mention the European Union and Uncle Sam -- Ariel Sharon gave away Gaza. The product of that bit of appeasement has been the unleashing of endless rockets into Israel. a phony Goldstone Report and other indignities against the Middle East's only democracy.

It's time for Israel to do just the opposite of appeasement. Let Peres do a latter-day Eduard Benes and tell the Arabs that there will be no capitulation.

And, most of all, let Bibi follow the path of Winston Churchill who never walked the road of appeasement because he knew that that path led to a dead end!

The Israeli boycott is anti-Semitic, period. Those who wish to boycott Israel must be aware of this fact.

Those who wish to boycott Israel are anti-Semitic because they totally disregard Israel’s democratic and pluralistic nature, labelling her an apartheid state.

They overlook the one hundred percent anti-Semitic policies of the Palestinian leaders (Fatah and Hamas) and the FERVENT anti-Semitic culture of the PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.

A recent poll taken by the Palestinian Government shows that the Palestinian people see the two-state solution as a means of ultimately destroying Israel.

This should come as no shock, being that this type of propaganda is fed to the Palestinians from childhood on.

Because of this clearly racist Boycott against Israel, the Knesset has just passed a law giving citizens of Israel the ability to sue those who attempt to boycott Israeli companies and the settlements in Judea and Samaria.

Predictably there are those in Israel, the E.U. and even some in the American government who have condemned the Knesset for passing this law.

This law, however, was passed through democratic institutions to protect a democracy from organizations (the B.D.S and I.S.M movements are heavily funded by Saudi Arabia and other Arab dictatorships) that are largely funded by tyrannical Islamic dictatorships.

I love it when Europe slams Israel: it is the pinnacle of hypocrisy. The E.U. apparently has forgotten they have made being anti-Semitic and denying the Holocaust illegal.

On top of this many countries in Europe have made it illegal for a Muslim to where a full veil and have also started making it illegal to build minarets.

So when the EU starts chastising Israel about the Boycott Law, it just makes me laugh.

But it is far more serious when dealing with those in Israel who have come out against the Boycott Law.

These bullshitters fought tooth and nail against Rabbis in Safed who wanted to boycott renting apartments to Arabs.

This is a form of boycott, isn’t it?

I might not agree with it and I might find it disgusting, but if one is going to come out against Rabbis who want their constituents to boycott Arabs, that person had better stand against anti-semites boycotting Israel basically because she is the Jewish State (no matter how they cloak their “reasons”).

Apparently for many on the Left in Israel, it is totally acceptable to boycott Israel just for being the homeland of the Jewish Nation. But are they calling for a boycott against any Arab nation for its miserable record on how they treat their own citizens – women, gays, protesters?

This self-loathing mentality in Israel is unacceptable. And it is why, no matter how hard it is for me to digest, the Boycott Law is basically a sound defense. The recent protests in Israel over cottage cheese prices and housing costs proves that we’re not bereft of our freedom.

Boycotting cottage cheese and housing is not the same as boycotting a country only because it happens to be the Jewish Nation state.

The left in Israel are bullshitters for a larger reason.

Their totally screwed-up sense of understanding the Palestinian plight is laughable and based on the worst of politically correct principles, which basically comes down to “no matter how rightly we (Israel) act, they must believe in our (Israel’s) basic wrongness!”

This ridiculous circular logic is tired and old. It also has no place in Israel.

The Palestinians are in their situation today solely because of the crap leadership they have chosen or allowed to rule them.

There are still Palestinian refugees today, but NOT because of Israel. There are still refugee camps in the West Bank and Gaza because the Palestinian leadership has maintained their choice to destroy Israel instead of building Palestine.

Those in Israel who constantly blame her for the idiocy of the Palestinians are quite simply 100 per cent wrong.


Thank the Lord for September; I cannot wait for it to arrive.

Israel needs to stop stressing on the Palestinians cheap plan to declare statehood at the United Nations. The Israeli government should be encouraging it, in fact.

The second Abbas and his underlings break every U.N. security council resolution and every agreement signed together by the Palestinians, Israel, the United States and the E.U., by unilaterally declaring statehood, Israel will be free of the Palestinian burden.

It makes no difference what the world says or does; they will be biased against Israel in the international arena, as they always have been. But in the end they will still do business with Israel.

The Palestinians will have their state, just on far less land than they want.

Just as it made no difference to the world when six Arab nations attempted to destroy Israel at her creation, it will make no difference to Israel that there will be a Palestine without territorial continuity.

That fact will be the fault and the responsibility of no one else but the Palestinian leadership.

No one is telling Malaysia or Indonesia to give Singapore more land, are they? Is anybody boycotting China for what she has done to Tibet? Why isn’t the EU demanding that France return Alsace-Lorraine to Germany? When will the UN accuse Turkey for the mass genocide of Armenians? Why is everybody pussy-footing around Syria and Yemen?

There are easily a score of countries that could -- and should -- be ostracized, condemned and certainly boycotted before wasting precious time and energy on the mythical wrongs supposedly done by the state of Israel against the Palestinians.

And now, in September, the Palestinians, by unilaterally declaring statehood and by breaking the international law that has been applied to this conflict, will forfeit thereby the land that Israel chooses to unilaterally annex.

It will also make it legal in international law for Israel to DECLARE WAR on the state of Palestine any time a rocket is fired into Israel.

Instead of continuing guilt trips and self-hating bullshit, we should be celebrating the Palestinians’ everlasting inability to get something right.

Bring it on!

In a normal world one would think that with Israel surrounded by enemies the time has come for the country to unite against its belligerent foes.

But that would assume that fanatical leftist Jews in the Holy Land -- not to mention some so-called "centrists" such as Tzipi Livni -- would be rational enough to grasp the threats being generated around the Middle East's only democracy.

Threats? They are real and growing. Any doubters should consult the latest dispatches from Tehran. We now learn that an Iranian nuclear physicist is orchestrating an "unexpected" quickening of that country's nuclear material production.

Does Mademoiselle Livni doubt that any number of Iranian mullahs would like nothing better than to blast Israel from here to eternity?

Israel's foes are fairly well all over the place. Closer to home, we have Hezbollah (formerly Lebanon) and Hamas (formerly the Palestinian Authority.)

The one up north can't wait for an opportunity -- how about off-shore drilling rights? -- to find a reason to unleash an endless cloudburst of rocketry -- while our Southern neighbor simply hopes to finagle Israel right out of existence.

These are as obvious as salt in the Dead Sea but a growing equally dangerous group is growing within Israel itself.

Some are as easily identifiable as Israel-hating Arabs within the Knesset. Others are Israeli Jews who pose as fair-minded journalists, human rights "activists" (whatever that means) while still others are proteges of Ariel Sharon -- that's you, Tzipi -- before the Prime Minister began awarding the Arabs presents such as Gaza without getting even a receipt in return.

On the newspaper side, when it comes to undermining the government in a crisis, one need not look beyond Haaretz.

No Jewish journal has done more to publicly deface Israel's image and its ability to defend itself against its sworn enemies than writers such as Gideon Levy and Israel Harel
for both the Hebrew and English versions of the daily.

Day after day the likes of Bradley Burston relentlessly spew a pro-Arab mantra that would be more suitably for journals published in Damascus, Beirut and Gaza City. And because Israel is a democracy, they are able to get away with their blatant anti-government propaganda. There are times when Burston's words read as if Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal is Bradley's ghost-writer.

Even more damaging to Benjamin Netanyahu's government is the Axis of Misconception that has been coupled together by Haaretz and the New York Times.

Guided by its longtime anti-Israel agenda, Times' dispatches from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and all points between Eilat and Metulla, invariably quote Haaretz authors as if they purportedly represent the nation's thinking; which, of course, is not the case.

This ongoing journalistic deception has been clearly revealed by Stuart Palmer of the International Citizens Action Network.

Palmer notes that a recent survey details that within the past three years-plus, Haaretz readership has fallen consistently from a "high" or 8.1 percent to 5.8 percent now.

"Does the international media not realize," says Palmer, "that such a SMALL proportion of Israelis actually read the paper? This shows that the Israeli public has reflected its views on the credibility of Haaretz."

Which brings me to Livni and what has become her endless vendetta with Bibi at the expense of her country's credibility. At a time when Israel desperately needs the partnership of a Kadima-Likud alliance, Livni has done everything possible to torpedo her former Likud partner.

"Since taking the helm of the opposition," writes Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick, "Livni has never been willing to recognize that foreign attacks on Netanyahu are quite often attacks on Israel.

"In this vein, Livni has consistently sided with Barack Obama, the Palestinians and the international left against Netanyahu."

What Israel needs more than ever in these dangerous times is a spirit of unity not divisiveness for the sake of political gain.

With that in mind, I am reminded of America prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. The United States was politically divided with isolationists very vocally trying to keep the United States insulated from the rest of the world while their realistic opponents knew that there was no way to ignore the threats from the Nazis on one side of the Atlantic and the Japanese on the other side of the Pacific.

Once both the Japanese and Germans declared war on Uncle Sam, an amazing thing happened and that was the manner in which virtually all Americans -- there were a precious few exceptions -- rallied behind president Franklin Delano Roosevelt's war effort. It was the most unprecedented show of unity that ever took place throughout the then forty-eight states.

Israel is not in a "declared" war at the moment but the Arabs merely are biding their time for another "right moment" to attack.

Unity -- American-style, 1942-1945 -- is particularly important at a time when the Barack Obama administration continues to make nicey-nice with Israel's enemies and treats Netanyahu as a fourth-cousin-twice-removed.

Unfortunately, the one Israeli leader in a position to help Bibi is the very person he brought into the Knesset in 1994, Livni. Incredibly as it now may seem, she once was a super-hawk but now as Kadima leader Tzipi is far more left than centrist; more favoring Obama's policies that those needed to preserve her own country's welfare.

Glick: "Livni defended Obama as a friend of Israel. She ignored Obama's shocking renunciation of pledges that his predecessor made to the Sharon government regarding Israel's right to defensible borders."

Her motive is as clear as a freshly-washed window; she wants to be Prime Minister and -- whether she actually realizes it or not -- in her relentless pursuit of that goal will harm her country far more than she is helping it.

"It is," concludes Glick, "a shameless exploitation of Israel's vulnerability."

I always liked the theme, "By their works shall ye know them."

From this view, Tzipi is not working for the good and welfare of Israel.

And that is my understatement of the year.

For all who believe Israel too strong to be defeated and is here to stay, it is time to wake up to reality.

Militarily Israel may well be the strongest she has ever been. Today no Arab or Muslim (Iran) state would start a war without taking a long time to think about the harsh response the IDF would bring upon it.

But it is not the physical realm in which Israel is weak; it is in the spheres of academia, diplomacy and world politics that Israel has become weakened to the point of needing life-support.

The situation must be reversed: Israel (and her allies) can no longer sit idly by as her enemies change the political playing field, turning her into a pariah state.

How can Israel tackle this battlefield?

First, her missionaries must take the stage and confront this new form of terrorist, the POLITICAL TERRORIST.

The people who demonize Israel for defending her citizens, deny her the right to exist and actively call for the destruction of her institutions are exactly that: Political Terrorists.

Next Israel must start forming response teams.

These teams must be made up of citizens with extensive knowledge of Israel’s historical validity; they must understand and be able to contrast Israel’s democracy to the hodgepodge of theocracies, tyrannical monarchies and juntas of the Muslim countries surrounding her; they must be representative of Israel’s multi-ethnic society.

These teams will be sent into cities abroad, work with local Jewish institutions, Pro-Israel advocacy groups, and pro-Israel academics to combat these terrorists.

Once this arena is recognized as a battlefield the Ministry of Defense, along with Israel’s security services, should be involved in this war and should mentor the members of these teams.

Money needs to be spent on these teams on a scale similar to that of a weapons project.

These teams mentored correctly will be changing the political landscape in Israel’s favor. Ultimately they would be worth more than a squadron of F-35’s.

These teams will be key in the mobilization of pro-Israel communities abroad to fight, match protests, and delegitimize the de-legitimizers -- a spearhead at the tip of the pro-Israel camp’s exposure of the enormous falsehoods being propagated against her.

New programs must also be set up in Israel for Jews to come over, see the country (i.e. Birthright) but also learn of Israel in both an historical (Israeli History, not just Jewish history) and a “defensive” manner.

Defensive education means that part of each program should be a course in Krav Maga, along with a trip to all of Israel’s HOT borders (Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank).

A seminar should be devoted to the Security barrier, how it has saved thousands of lives on both sides (don’t forget how many Palestinians die when the IDF responds to a suicide attack) and how and why we must fight those trying to delegitimize the nation.

Seminars with Veterans of the 2006 Lebanon war and the Gaza conflict should be a part of the program. One or two of these soldiers (hopefully from their mid-20’s to mid-30’s) should be assigned to each group and assist in guiding each group throughout their stay in Israel.

The Israeli government must make it one hundred percent clear to both the United States and the EU that if funding by Arab, Muslim and PA institutions to those trying to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist isn’t stopped, then there is no point in negotiations.

If Israel is not recognized as the Jewish Nation state by her neighbors and the world, then there is no reason for yet another Arab/Muslim state on her borders, one called Palestine.

Give them points for trying.

That's all I can say for the European Union and its latest attempt to jump something that simply won't leap forward; and that happens to be the forever-stalled peace talks.

According to the latest rather believable scuttlebutt, the EU's latest attempt never got out of the batter's box because it struck out on three straight pitches.

Actually, maybe just one!

And that would be the failure to agree on one cardinal point; Arab recognition of Israel as a democratic, JEWISH state.

Although that -- Israel as the Jewish state -- ,precisely is the case, and long ago was so recognized by the United Nations, the mere idea of the Israel-Jewish state equation sticks and slices in Mahmoud Abbas' craw like an icepick which never in a million years can be swallowed.

That being the case, Europe's Quartet sang the blues and ended their latest stalemated meeting in Washington with what amounted to a hopeless "We're outta here!"

In a reprise of Cold War days, Russia sided with the Thumbs-Down Arabs when the Israel=Jewish State equation was inserted in what would have been a joint progress statement. Others in the group supported the Israel-Jewish state link but, in the end, the Muscovites torpedoed the talks., refusing to go along with the obvious.

When you think about it -- even theoretically -- such peacemaking extravaganzas as the most recent EU conference in Washington are a waste of time, and here's why:

Since Russia represents the Arabs (now known as Palestinians), the Kremlin is speaking on behalf of Abbas and his Palestinian Authority buddies. But the Palestinians are trying to unite Hamas with the PA. Since Hamas is pathologically opposed to Israel in any way, shape or form -- let alone as a Jewish state -- there's no sense in even talking about the talks.

And even if the Hamas-PA reconciliation never takes place, no rational mediation can take place unless Gaza (Hamas) is involved as well. Thus, no matter how the EU attacks the road-blockers (i.e. Arabs), it hits a dead-end.

What's so stunning about the EU's fascination-focus on Israel and the Arabs is that it continues unabated as if some solution is just around the calendar; which we know is not the case.

This is all the more arresting when one considers that REAL issues such as mass murders in Syria take place every single day and yet Uncle Sam and his buddies across the Atlantic treat the dictator Assad as if his name is Mister Impunity. Only lately is there talk of moving against the Syrian leader.

Even more ludicrous is the latest bulletin that the ubiquitous -- Quixotic would be more like it -- Tony Blair will be the next peacemaker to visit the Middle East in an attempt to turn the Quartet's latest pessimistic results into some form of Pollyanna optimism.

Precisely what Blair hopes to accomplish in view of the EU's failure only he seems to know and all we do know is that Tony will arrive armed with good intentions and nothing more.

If I had the opportunity to greet the former British Prime Minister on his arrival, the first thing I'd do is hand him a brochure I received at the recent Israel Day Parade in Manhattan. It was distributed by Bnai Elim, a Brooklyn group with the venerable slogan, "Never Again."

Bnai Elim has what it claims to the "A Different Solution to the Arab/Israeli Conflict."

I won't go into all the details but the root of Bnai Elim's argument is that the Land of Israel has been home to Jews for 3,500 years and that Jews have every right to live peacefully in their homeland.

"The Arab 'Palestinians' have no rights to Israel," Bnai Elim insists. "Arab 'Palestine' is a fiction; a historical distortion; part of a plan to destroy Israel.

"Having failed to destroy Israel by war, the Arab League initiated a different tactic by inventing a fictional people, known as 'Palestinians,' formerly and more accurately known as Arabs living in Israel. Historically, the term 'Palestinian' actually referred to Jews."

These points -- among many others -- underline the EU's futility in hammering out a peace pact.

In each case, the bottom line is unassailable: THE ARABS DO NOT WANT A REASONABLE PEACE WITH ISRAEL.

Were the opposite the case, the original United Nations partition plan -- accepted by Israel -- would not have been rejected by the Arabs. Now consider all the other "peace deals" scuttled by Yassir Arafat and his confederates:

1. The Oslo Accords (1993); 2. The Wye River Memorandum (1998); 3. Camp David (2000); 4. Taba Summit (2001); 5. Arab Peace Initiative (2002); 6. Road Map for Peace (2003); 7. Sharm el-Sheikh Summit (2005); 8 Annapolis Conference (2007).

In each case, Israel made drastic -- almost absurd -- concessions to inspire peaceful co-existence and was slapped down every time.

Bnai Elim's points are irrefutable and must be studied by all fair-minded EU members as well as the well-meaning Blair.

"The conflict is NOT over the territories of 1967," the Bnai Elim premise points out, "and it's not because Israel owns that land. The Arabs are unwilling to accept a Jewish state of any kind. Land for peace will never work.

"Before Israel was born Arabs were perpetrating pogroms against Jews; pogroms in the 1920s and 1930s when there were no so-called 'occupied territories. During the 1940s and 1950s Jews were unilaterally and harshly expelled from the Arab countries."

There are twenty-two Arab states totalling 650 times the size of Israel.

Never mind even discussion of the Abbas' "right of return" homily. In 1948 Israel absorbed more than 750,000 Jews from Arab countries. It's about time the twenty-two Arab States absorbed those Arabs who claim to be "Palestinians."

Whether you agree with Bnai Elim or not -- or me for that matter -- you must know that neither the EU nor Tony Blair will get anywhere as long as the Arabs refuse to acknowledge Israel as the Jewish State.

Sir Walter Scott once wrote words that remain prophetic today when analyzing the endless, failed peace processes, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive."

Deception has been the woof and warp of Arab strategy against Jews since Israel was born.

When all is said and done, that' what the EU and Blair are up against when dealing with Jew-haters, despite their most noble intentions.

If it wasn't tragic, it would be laughable.

I'm talking about the latest "flotilla" that has threatened to challenge Israel's blockade of Gaza.

You can add to that tragic-comedy the "flightilla" comprised of pro-Arab radicals softly described by the New York Times as dominated by "middle-aged European pacifists."

They are "Jew-hating Leftists," if you really want to know who they are, and it wouldn't hurt if every last one of them got a therapeutic kick in the pants and a brain replacement.

Really, who do they think they are kidding when they raise their "Free Gaza" placards.

Yes, how about freeing Gaza from the yoke placed on its Arabs by the Hamas terrorists who murdered their own people to cement a hold on the territory.

These sea-going and air-going flotilla-flightilla, pro-Arab radicals who claim to be disciples of peace represent the height of hypocrisy.

Were they genuinely interested in pursuing a humanitarian cause, they would direct their venom East of Israel where the Syrian dictator, Assad, is daily orchestrating the murder of his own people.

Taking the lead from the Obama administration, the flotilla-flightilla leftists pretend that Assad's version of the Gestapo is merely firing paint bombs at the protestors. Yet the freedom fighters in Syrian cities such as Hama are shedding real blood while the White House peaceniks turn away.

Political analyst Barry Rubin hits the bullseye when he cites Uncle Sam's inexplicable moves. On the one hand, America's -- and Israel's -- ally, Hosni Mubarak, was impetuously catapulted into jail while gangster-leaders in Algeria, Sudan, Yemen and, of course, Syria are virtually treated with kid gloves by America.

"What the U.S. government must justify," asserts Rubin, "is why human rights violations in some countries deserve intervention and the same or worse in other countries don't."

The so-called "middle-aged European pacifists" would do well to check out the pacifist nature of militant Islamists who rule Gaza.

Is there anything peaceful about the endless barrage of rockets hurled at Israel from Gaza?

Unfortunately, the Israel-loathing left welcomes any lies spewed by Hamas and other Arab groups dedicated to the destruction of the Middle East's only democracy.

And you can throw in Israel's Quisling Jews headed by B'Tselem, a group purportedly dedicated to protecting human rights in the conquered territories. Writing in the New York Jewish Week, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg and Blu Greenberg reveal that B'Tselem "accepted the Hamas report that more than half the Palestinian casualties in Operation Cast Lead were civilians."

Uncritically, B'Tselem then gave the same misleading numbers to the UN Goldstone Commission which then foolishly believed them and ripped Israel for targeting civilians and committing war crimes. But detailed probes later proved that Hamas' duplicitous claim of 1,400 civilian casualties actually was only 200.

Once the propaganda damage was done to Israel, Goldstone later repudiated the charges of Israel targeting civilians.

"The residue of constantly repeated poisonous portrayals of Israel," Greenberg and Greenberg point out, "are toxic -- especially among academics, university students, the radical left and mass media."

Those "middle-aged European pacifists" studiously avoid the fact that Israel has lost 1,400 victims to terrorists. But the Almagor Terror Victims Association of Israel has not forgotten. Nor has its chief, Meir Indor, who fingers precisely what these "pacifists" have in mind.

"European anti-semitism," says Indor, "is disguised as care for the Palestinians."

The same could be said of the Israel-hating European Union which will cheerfully ignore the fact that four Hezbollah leaders have been indicted by an international tribunal in the assassination in 2005 of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Come to think of it Obama will do nothing about the Lebanese atrocity either and you don't have be a genius to understand why.

"Obama," explains Rubin, "has no end game, no strategy and absolutely no idea what to do."

Meanwhile, both the flotilla and flightilla movements are foundering for one very good reason -- they're phonies!

By Simon Fischler

The middle-east conflict is moving from a physical battlefield to a figurative battlefield where wars are fought in classrooms, university campuses, newspapers and other media outlets.

For many reasons the Palestinians and Arabs have an advantage in this new battlefield.

Saudi oil money buying off American and European universities is a hard reality facing Israel today; one that is very disturbing.

In Europe the rise of Arab/Muslim influence it is far more understandable. Europe is overrun with Arab Muslim immigrants from former colonies. In many instances these populations have refused, sometimes violently, to join the mainstream culture of their new country. What to do with or how much to assent to the customs and demands of these Arab populations has become a major preoccupation in France and other Western Europe countries. It’s almost understandable, if not forgivable, that anti-semitism should be on the rise in Europe: after all, most of the Arab populations are themselves semites; and in some convoluted fashion, these Muslims wouldn’t be a problem if it weren’t for the Jews!

In America it is very different. There is no huge dissatisfied immigrant Muslim population. Instead there is an incredible amount of Arab oil money being fed into American universities, particularly into universities that have traditionally had a liberal bent and a somewhat pro-Israel slant.

No more.

Infused with monies for “International Chair of Middle Eastern Studies” and the like, American academia has become more and more vociferous in its condemnation of Israel.

The situation in American academia has worsened to the point that major universities have withdrawn investments in Israel or Israeli products, encouraging others to do the same. Jewish students, whose parents are paying more than $40,000 a year for tuition, are being intimidated and/or shunned if they attempt to protest or even to clarify the misstatements constantly being put forth about Israel.

Then, unfortunately, there are the Jews themselves. Jews have always been the greatest enemies of the Israelite, Jewish nation. Historically from biblical times we have caused ourselves the most amount of harm. Jews complained to Moses, forsaking G-D’s miracles the whole trip out of Egypt. Jews pushed Aaron to make the Golden Calf. Jews brought the Temple down by corruption. In all these cases it was but a few Jews actively working against the best interests of the nation. Anti-Semites have tried on numerous occasions to blame the whole of the Jewish nation for the problems created by a few.

Today Israel and the Jewish nation worldwide are faced by the same problem: self-hating Jews who use their credentials as a Jew to speak out in an ant-semitic fashion against the existence of Israel. Academic Noam Chomsky is one; Norman Finkelstein, Howard Zinn (now dead) and Ilan Pepe are other notorious Jewish anti-semites. All of these professors are or were anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, lying demagogues -- mouthpieces for today’s gentile Jew haters.

In Israel we are also faced with this sickness. After all Ilan Pepe teaches at Haifa University.

Sadly, for people like me the Israeli left has been replaced by groupies who seem to think the way to be peace-seeking Israelis is by blaming Israel for all the problems mostly created by our Palestinian Arab friends! They have become tools for the self-hating academics, who are in reality simply implementing the agenda of the Arab/Muslim countries surrounding Israel.

A perfect example of this is in today’s Haaretz, in which there is an Article about Alan M. Dershowitz’s response to Judge Richard Goldstone’s heinous report for the UN on last year’s war in the Gaza strip.

Dershowitz, a left-leaning liberal and former good friend of Goldstone finished his rebuttal by saying that Goldstone is a traitor to the Jewish nation for writing the report he wrote.

That is a very strong statement to make, but Dershowitz is right!

Anyone who has taken the time to do their own independent research into the IDF’s actions in Gaza (today there are plenty of places on the internet alone to research the IDFs actions) would know that Goldstone purposefully attacked Israel and discredited her in his report. He did this while totally overlooking the criminal acts carried out by Hamas, both against the Israeli people by indiscriminately firing rockets into Israel and the Palestinian people of Gaza by using them, their houses schools and hospitals as shields.

Who came to the aid of Judge Richard Goldstone?

None other than the Queen of Israeli Liberalism, former MK Shulomit Aloni.

What did she have to say about Alan M. Dershowitz? "Dershowitz's statements border on hate. Goldstone is a Zionist Jew who was simply doing his job. Dershowitz is a despicable man who opposes the left and supports the settlers, his opinion doesn't count in my eyes, and the way he speaks of Goldstone is disgraceful. The Goldstone report isn't entirely accurate, though we cannot ignore the fact that we did violate international law - the IDF used phosphorus and bombed schools and hospitals."

Here is the problem, first Professor Dershowitz is a known liberal, who clearly sits on the left and has strongly, on numerous occasions, in almost all of his books come out against Israel’s settlement policies. So, either MK Aloni has never read an article or book of Professor Dershowitz’s, or like many of her kind just depends on lies, knowing the media will print them without a second glance!

MK Aloni also makes another mistake.

Using white phosphorus is not illegal in battle as long as you do not intentionally use it against the citizens of your enemy! The International Red Cross (no friend of Israel) went out of its way to say they found no evidence at all of Israeli using WP illegally. So, Israel clearly did not do this.

Aloni also does not understand that by Hamas shooting from inside, next to and around schools they made them military targets, which means it is not a violation of international law to target them. MK Aloni would do well to read more International Law before she attacks someone with the knowledge of Professor Deshowitz or even opens her mouth.

Aloni truly represents all that is wrong with the Israeli left today. They have given up their beliefs for deviant slogans that are mostly hateful towards the people whom they pretend to represent! Thanks to “liberals” such as Aloni and the negative influence they have, someone like Bibi Netenyahu gets to be the PM of Israel!

Today it is imperative for the Jewish nation and those who support Israel to stand up to the corrupt, counterfeit lies being spread by the so-called Left, performing like hateful puppets dancing to the monetary tune of their Arab/Muslim handlers.

Just In:

The organizers of the Gaza Flotilla have admitted that they are nothing more than a bunch of idiot, ninnies looking for attention.

Along with this shocking information we have also learned that Alice Walker is willing to sell her daughter Rebecca to raise money for HAMAS Rockets...I mean medicine for those in the Gaza Strip.

The Irish Contingent of the Flotilla has decided to pull out because of complications with their boat. These complications have been blamed on Israeli sabotage. Funny how you can always blame a Jew!

Lastly the organizers of the Gaza Flotilla have also announced their next mission will be directed at Gilligan, The Professor and Mary Anne for the occupation of their Island which is also part of historical Palescrime.

When more news comes in about the HOPE OF IDIOCY we will report it here.
