Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Durban II conference members welcomed Ahmadinejad with roaring applause, even though a few delegates waked out when he denied the Holocaust. Durban II opened on the day of Israel’s commemoration of the Holocaust.

Ahmadinejad’s increasingly clownish behavior correlates with Iranian progress in developing nuclear weapons. Though the West views him as the linchpin, Ahmadinejad makes no military decisions—the nuclear program is authorized directly by Ayatollah Khamenei. The ayatollahs see Ahmadinejad as an expendable politician, a straw man for Western accusations; but the Revolutionary Guards work to entrench him in power. Thus, Ahmadinejad needs international prominence to make himself into Iran’s irreplaceable representative: by ousting him, the ayatollahs would position themselves as Western puppets.

Israel recalled its Swiss ambassador in protest against Switzerland hosting the Durban II conference and Ahmadinejad, the Holocaust denier. The reaction is unusually strong and hints at Lieberman’s surprising influence on Netanyahu, who had to authorize the Foreign Ministry’s decision.

Switzerland was the first country to collaborate with the Germans in the Holocaust. At the request of the Swiss, the Germans stamped Jewish passports with a J (for Juden) so that Switzerland could distinguish them from other German citizens and deny entry to refugees.

In a government briefing, Military Intelligence changed its earlier assessment that Iran will make a nuclear bomb in 2009. Now Iran is expected to stop short of test-firing a nuclear weapon, concentrating instead on enriching uranium for several nuclear bombs. When the political decision for test explosion is made, Iran will be able to build the bombs in a matter of months.

MI also confirmed our belief that Hamas is adhering to the ceasefire, and all the sporadic rocket attacks are being carried out by fringe terrorist groups.

According to A Shark al Awsat newspaper, the Egyptians initially tolerated the arrested Hezbollah recruiters because they posed as Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades members. Egypt, at peace with Israel for thirty years, has no problem with Fatah/Al Aqsa recruiting terrorists on its soil.

After an Iranian court sentenced an American journalist on espionage charges, the ayatollahs promised to immediately review the judgment. The verict will certainly be overturned.

This is the Iranian way of showing goodwill to America: show power first with false accusations, let everyone see that America is powerless against the Iranian courts, and then make the gesture of releasing the convict.

Ynet revealed a state secret: the Israeli government pressured the PA to abstain from prosecuting dozens of Arab land-sellers in East Jerusalem. Though the fact that the Israeli government sponsors land purchases around Jerusalem is well known, the size—3,212 acres—came as a surprise.

Now the Palestinians are in an uproar, demanding the execution of the sellers for collaborating with Jews.

Years ago, the Israeli High Court ordered the Jewish National Fund to freely lease land to Arabs.

Unable to convince Obama to allow Israel to destroy Iranian nuclear facilities, the Israeli Foreign Ministry engaged international homosexual groups over Iranian violations of their “rights.” Iran, a truly religious state, follows the Torah’s precepts and executes homosexuals.

When Jews reject the divine law they are left to rely on homosexuals for defense matters.

Here is a short overview of the Netanyahu-Obama press conference from someone who has attended other such rigged Presidential events in Israel.
We begin in 1978, at the press conference of Prime Minister Begin and Vice President Walter Mondale outside Begin’s office in Jerusalem. Back then the “sophisticated” rigging hadn’t begun in earnest, and I got to ask Mondale a question. Anwar Sadat had visited Jerusalem the year before and I had followed his tour as a press aide for John Keesler of the Miami Sun. Since then, President Carter made sure that Sadat got everything he demanded and Israel got nothing physical in return.

Now back then I didn’t know the game was fixed or that Carter was a member of the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) or that Mondale was not only a CFR member but also a founding partner of their new sister organization The Tri-Lateral Commission. If only I had known, I would have framed my question differently. What I saw was an ever-smiling dope who clearly despised Begin, but portrayed himself as a friendly uncle here for a visit with his good pal, the leader of Israel. I saw through that, and asked him, “Are you more sympathetic to the Israeli or Egyptian negotiating position?” or words to that effect.

Wally dropped his smile and answered the inexperienced reporter as if dismissing him outright. “We don’t take sides. We are objective.”
Yeah, sure you were. Within a year Israel had signed away every inch of the Sinai and received a “peace” treaty that would be abrogated by Egypt in half a generation. Today, Egypt doesn’t have to risk its soldiers fighting Israel; it just supplies Hamas with Sinai-smuggled weapons and lets them do the dirty work.

But to understand what Netanyahu had to endure in his conference with Obama, we must go to Yitzhak Rabin’s joint press conference in Jerusalem with President Bill Clinton of the CFR. As fate would playfully have it, I made friends at the event with a Canadian Christian journalist who lived in Samaria, the recently departed Grant Livingstone. After the horrific conference was over he drove me home, and thereafter became a close confident and supporter of my work.

Grant overcame the odds and triumphed before Clinton and the world.
The Oslo “peace” Accord had been signed the year before and Rabin, without exaggeration, was thoroughly hated by a majority of his people. And that would have to be hidden at all costs. This press conference was staged to remove all signs of Israeli opposition to Rabin, Clinton, and Oslo. I sat in the second row, one row back and two away from Secretary of State Warren Christopher (CFR). I looked at his otherworldly face, noticed his ghastly wingtip shoes, and determined he was an alien from a far-off galaxy. Of course, that was my imagination. Only much later did we determine that it was true.

As Rabin and Clinton entered the room, not one Israeli got off his chair, but the entire White House press corps rose to their feet and gave them both an extended and phoney standing ovation, as they must have been instructed to do. These clowns were pre-selected to be the “reporters” for Clinton’s trip.

There were two mikes set up for reporters and I saw two Israel tv hacks stand behind each one. I got the message and stood behind one, second in line behind tv “reporter” Emmanuel Halperin. Grant saw what I did and got up to be third in line. My question would be about the Syrian diplomatic process, and Grant wouldn’t tell me what he was planning to ask. So while Clinton and Rabin read their prepared statements, I edited my question to the basics on, as I recall, a found napkin.

Then the press questions began, and not one was aimed at the open mikes. Instead, Clinton would point at a reporter, name him, and take the “unexpected” questions. “Yes Mary, do you have a question?” he asked. And the tiny old hag asked, “Yes, Mr. President. How would you characterize your trip so far?” And that was the toughest question he fielded all night. I drifted off as the endless session continued. “Helen Thomas here, Mr. President, how did you sleep last night?” I imagined in the blur of trivia.
Rabin was asked one, maybe two questions, but I caught what I thought was obvious to everyone. He was drunk. His feet swaggered, he slurred his words, and he held onto the podium for balance. It was a highly disturbing sight. And though it was noticed after, no one wrote a word of upsetting journalism about Rabin’s drunken performance.

Clinton’s arm must have been worn out from fielding marshmallows, because he finally agreed to accept questions from the mike. At the opposite mike, an Israeli reporter threw Rabin a softball. After his long-winded, inebriated reply, the conference-host announced that the next question would be the last. I turned to Grant and said, “We’ve been set up.”
He pushed Halperin away and asked Clinton, ” As a Christian, aren’t you afraid of the final price you’ll pay for forcing Israel to cede land to murderers?”

Silence, followed by a shocked murmur that spread through the White House “reporters”! Clinton’s face turned crimson. Hesitating, he started to answer just as the host announced that the press conference was over. Grant unrigged the show.

The whole nation was watching the conference, and as we walked to his car people recognized him, congratulated him, and actually applauded him. And not a word was written about the man, nor the question that blew apart the choreographed press fiasco of Oslo, Rabin, and Clinton.

The Obama-Netanyahu conference was even more staged than this. The room was small, the reporters handpicked and left standing for the cameras, for whatever psychological advantage there is in that. Netanyahu and Obama sat in a one-on-one “friendly” discussion. Netanyahu clearly had been previously threatened, and his face was ashen, but Obama was not in a nice mood either.

He wanted to start on giving away the ship to the Palestinians, while Netanyahu desired an Iran-first diplomacy. “But,” he reiterated, “Israel will not surprise America with an attack.” Like it could. To get to Iran, Israeli planes would have to overfly American-held Iraq, or America’s ally Saudi Arabia, at which point it would find itself in a dogfight with the American Air Force. Big concession.

They both stared each other down as they spoke, and they found excuses to agree on anything available. But they fooled no one. It’s endgame-for-Israel time, and Netanyahu tried to delay Obama’s final diplomacy. But so did Begin, and Carter forced him to betray his ideals. But so did Rabin, and Clinton got him to betray Israel’s basic security.

Now it’s Netanyahu’s turn, and give it time; Obama will make him betray his country or Israel is doomed to be friendless in this world.
That was the not-so-rigged message of the choreographed Obama-Netanyahu press conference.
