In a January 25th 60 Minutes interview with Bob Simon, Prime Minister Candidate Tzipi Livni revealed that she plans to evacuate tens of thousands of “settlers” in the interest of peace with the “Palestinians”.
…but one very important Israeli says she intends to move them out. She’s Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, a candidate to become prime minister in elections next month. She’s also Israel’s chief negotiator with the Palestinians, and she told 60 Minutes peace is unthinkable with the settlers where they are.
“Can you really imagine evacuating the tens of thousands of settlers who say they will not leave?” Simon asked.
“It’s not going to be easy. But this is the only solution,” she replied. Continue reading Be An Informed Israeli Voter: Tzipi Livni (Kadima)
With elections coming up next week its always good to keep up-to-date on what the politicians are saying in their attempts to persuade us to vote for them. Well in Kadima MKs: Only Schalit’s release can win us election published last week in the Jerusalem Post, the Kadima party strategist states:
“Within two weeks, people will forget that there was a war,” Chorev said. “We live in a country where no one even remembers that there was a terrorist attack as soon as funerals are over.”

Bret Stephens (The Wall Street Journal) had an interesting conversation with former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over the weekend in which Mr. Netanyahu accuses Iran Is the Terrorist ‘Mother Regime’. It’s worth reading.
You may have noticed that over the past six months of blogging (and few years of in-person nagging) that I’ve been trying to convince you (my Jewish readers and friends) to make Aliyah. Well, things have heated up around the world and just in case you’ve been burying your head in the sand or dwelling in a cave lately I have decided to give you a synopsis of recent events because I’m worried that time is running out.
I believe that Israel is the safest place in the world for Jews to be living during this time in history. I worry that many people have bought into the “Never Again!” slogan to the point of assuming by believing it would become a guarantee (no disrepect intended as I envy your emunah).
Worldwide Increase in Anti-Semitism
This month the following anti-Jewish and anti-Israel protests and attacks have occured outside of Israel. It is foolish to think that this level of hatred and anti-Semitism was strictly the result of Israel’s decision to (finally) fight back at Gaza’s terrorists. Israel’s attack on terrorism was just a vehicle to bring your neighbor’s hatred toward you to the surface. God is sending you a message and here it is in living color and sound.

Danny Hershtal asked me to share this invitation with you.
The war Israel is fighting is far from over. The real battle, for Israel’s right to exist and prosper and for a safer Middle East for our children to grow up in, is yet to be fought. This battle will not be fought in the streets of Gaza but in the halls of the UN and the White House. To win this battle we need a strong government, resolved to do the best for Israel and its citizens.
This is a crucial election wherein the fate of the country will be decided. If you want a strong government determined to defend Israel’s NATIONAL interests, we invite you to participate in a unique, unprecedented event Yisrael Beytenu will be holding this Thursday, January 22nd at the Shalom Hotel in Bayit Vegan, for the English speaking community. Key figures such as Dr. Uzi Landau, Ambassador Danny Ayalon and Adv. David Rotem will speak about the policies and platform of Yisrael Beytenu. Continue reading Be An Informed Israeli Voter – Yisrael Beytenu
Michael was interviewed by BBC journalist Olivia Macleod on Friday. How did she find him? Well, it seems that he’s been stirring up trouble using the comment section of several BBC online “news” articles to dispute the BBC’s bias toward Arab (a.k.a. Palestinian) terrorists. Continue reading BBC – Israeli Voices: When to Stop
I’ve been trying to keep politics to a minimum on this blog, but in light of the negativity towards Israel in the western media lately, I feel I need to share this with you.
Check world history prior to its re-writing by Arabs in the 20th and 21st Centuries and you’ll discover that Palestine has never existed as a nation. The region currently referred to as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, Islamic and Christian crusaders (i.e., terrorists), the Ottoman Empire and Great Britain after World War I. The British agreed to restore part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by, or awarded to, Arabs as a separate nation.
But don’t just take my word for it, according to Arab leaders there is no such thing as the “Palestinian” people. Continue reading Arabs Admit the PALESTINIAN PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST
