A married Israeli man petitioned the High Court to stop the deportation of his Palestinian boyfriend, a convicted drug dealer who was in Israel illegally.

Palestinian negotiator Abu Ala declared that an Israeli return to the 1949 (1948, actually) borders would solve 70 percent of the problems. Imagine the rest of their demands.

On a positive note, Abu Ala made a groundbreaking offer to Israeli settlers to accept Palestinian citizenship. That is a sensible solution along the lines of the one which we advocate. A lot of settlers would accept Palestinian passports for the privilege of remaining in their homes rather than being evicted by the Jewish army. In practice, Israel would guarantee their security. As Jews, they can enter Israel any time, even daily for work, education, and treatment.

Earlier, the Palestinians had rejected the citizenship option for settlers.

It remains unclear whether Abu Ala’s opinion is his own or Fatah’s. Recently he lost his position as the chief negotiator. Abu Ala’s position in Fatah steadily eroded after he left the prime minister’s office.
Hamas is ambivalent about allowing Jews in the Palestinian-ruled territories. In a meeting with the Neturei Karta sect, Hamas welcomed Jews to live under Palestinian jurisdiction, as did Ahmadinejad. In political speeches, Hamas leaders remain adamant that no Israeli will be allowed in the Palestinian state.

Providing Jewish settlers with Palestinian citizenship is the best way to solve the settlements issue. The Israeli government is politically incapable of expelling 260,000 Jews from the settlements. Palestinians, encouraged by the example of the Egyptians and Lebanese who got 100% of their land back from Israel, cannot accept any Israeli settlements to remain.

Just as in every Arab country, Palestinian law forbids land ownership by non-Arabs, but modifying it to allow the Jews to stay in their villages seems a minor inconvenience.

At a time when Obama and Arab leaders have failed to work out an acceptable peace initiative, Abu Ala’s offer of Palestinian citizenship to Jewish settlers offers a solution.

The HaBait HaYehudi (Jewish Home) faction of the Knesset won preliminary approval for its bill, which slaps with a jail sentence anyone who rejects Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.

We don’t know what is so Jewish about an Israel which violates Shabbat, Pesach, Yom Kippur, and every conceivable commandment. As for democracy—the Arabs’ right to change the country’s flag to green—we reject it.

Netanyahu canceled his visit to France to avoid embarrassment over its failure.

Following the American decision to stop all North Korean ships for inspection to curb nuclear proliferation, the communists formally rescinded the armistice with South Korea and promised retaliation. North Korea also re-launched its reactor and started reprocessing of spent uranium rods into plutonium—the scenario we have repeatedly predicted for Iran’s ‘peaceful’ Bushehr reactor.

This is becomeing increasingly interesting. North Koreans are clearly inviting an American strike on their nuclear facilities. With several nuclear bombs at their disposal, they might be betting on soundly defeating the United States in a South Korean proxy war. The communists are counting on Obama not to use American nukes against them.

Obama will try to muster a coalition with Russia, and perhaps China, to attack North Korean nuclear installations.

The High Court heard a petition by Olmert’s lawyers to defer his case for a few months while he undergoes treatment for prostate cancer. Sure enough, the Olmert-haters denied the petition.

In fact, there was no hearing. The judges ‘recommended’ that Olmert’s lawyers withdraw their petition. In any normal country, such a recommendation—a trial without a trial—would be considered a gross case of corruption, and would lead to public outcry. In Israel, such recommendations are the norm.

Acting on orders from Netanyahu and Barak, IDF demolished a mighty illegal outpost near Hebron: a tent on the Federman’s Farm.

Netanyahu imagines that if he dismantles the outposts, Obama will agree to allow natural settlement growth to accommodate their booming population. In reality, just like a dog given a bone, Obama will demand another one.

Following MK Arye Eldad’s suggestion that Jordan grant citizenship to the West Bank Palestinians, the Jordanian FM delivered Israel a note demanding a “clear explanation of what took place in the Knesset.” While the insolent Jordanians should be scolded accordingly, Eldad’s offer is nonsense.

The PA issues its own passports, accepted by over seventy countries, including Western Europe.

In a game of hot potato, Israel tries to pass Gaza to Egypt and the West Bank to Jordan, who are only happy to abandon the unruly Palestinians to Israel.

Adwan Yihya Farhan of Galilee will be sentenced for the murders of four Jews, among numerous other crimes. He will spend a comfortable life behind bars, at the expense of Israeli taxpayers.

The Torah prescribes execution.

Gen. Jones, Obama’s national security advisor, claimed that North Korea is “a long way from developing a nuclear weapon.” Jones means that the North tested a clumsy device which cannot be fitted onto a warhead.

Why would North Korea deplete its small stocks of plutonium by testing a prototype?

Jones avoids the uncomfortable conclusion that North Korea already has a weapon and can sell it. He continued with his head-in-sand claim by naming North Korea and Iran as the two major threats, though clearly the biggest threat is Pakistan, which aggressively exports nuclear know-how and whose reactors are located in areas controlled by the Taliban. Since, however, Jones can do nothing about Pakistan, avoiding the issue is the way to go.

Jones had entertained high hopes that Russia and China would stop North Korea. The Koreans, however, openly spurned the Chinese mediation efforts. China does not fear North Korea and has little reason to put pressure on it. North Korea’s nuclearization diminishes American influence in the region and thus improves the Chinese position. The Russians have had no influence whatsoever on North Korea in the past few years.

The North Korean nuclear problem can be tackled with a handful of ballistic missiles, but the West is too cowardly for that.

Before the US elections, Hillary Clinton was touted as a supporter of Israel. Not anymore.

Clinton repeatedly lashed out against Israel in words unthinkable even for Truman or Carter. This time, Clinton announced that the sovereign state of Israel must stop the settlement construction, which Obama has made clear to Israel. She reiterated that Obama wants to see a stop to the settlements (who cares what yet another Hussein wants).

As we predicted, Clinton rejected even the natural-growth exception. Obama agreed to the Arab demand that Israel pull back into the indefensible 1948 borders.

The Israeli government rejected calls to stop natural settlement growth. Netanyahu seems to be on a welcome crash course with Obama.

Sort of… The Amnesty International report places on Israel sole responsibility for breaking a six-month truce with Hamas. Israel allegedly broke the truce by killing six Palestinian guerrillas and invading Gaza. The Amnesty is unconcerned with the context: the guerrillas operated to abduct Israeli soldiers and Israel was continually shelled from Gaza.

The leftists also accused Jews of denying Gazans treatment in Israeli hospitals. Does the US treat all the poor Mexicans?

Ovadia Yosef’s son Rabbi Yaacov, Rabbi Dov Lior, Rabbi Steiner of Mercaz HaRav, and other prominent Zionist rabbis issued a halachic statement barring IDF soldiers from taking part in the evictions of settlements and outposts. As the rabbis note correctly, no Jew can be evicted from any part of the Land of Israel for political reasons.

What the rabbis did not say is that every Jew, women and children included, is obligated to fight the eviction orders under the commandment of milhemet mitzva, an obligatory war which we wage unquestioningly when anyone wants to take or surrender any part of the Land of Israel.

In practice, religious soldiers are generally given leave from the eviction operations.

While Obama calls on the ayatollahs to negotiate no-one-knows-what, Ahmadinejad has announced that his country has doubled the number of its centrifuges to 7,000 this year.

After the fifth interrogation of the FM, the strongest police charge against him is obstructing justice. Lieberman attempted to change his companies’ names in order to mislead the investigators. It is impossible, however, to prove his malicious intent.

The other charge is money laundering, which would be really hard to prove because the police cannot show that the money came from illegitimate sources.

It seems that police failed to prove that money from Cyprus accounts ended up in the Lieberman campaign’s coffers.

Though Lieberman will likely be indicted, the charges against him are very weak.

Obama banned Apache sales to Israel lest Jews use the helicopters against peaceful Palestinians.

The only problem is, where did the Hussein find peaceful Palestinians?

Bedouins attacked an Egyptian police roadblock in Sinai.
The Egyptian government’s attempts to stop arms- and blacks-trafficking put it on a collision course with local Bedouin tribes, who profit from the smuggling. Bedouins usually express their grievances against the government by terrorist attacks on the Egyptian Red Sea resorts.

Obama liarSpeaking after his meeting with Abu Mazen, the Hussein announced that Israel must stop all settlement construction because it is the Jews’ obligation under the Road Map.

What a lie! The Road Map says not a word about construction inside the existing settlements. Ceasing the settlement expansion is clearly conditioned on the Palestinians’ curbing their national sport, terrorism.

To his fellow Muslim Abu Mazen, Obama did not use the word must, but vaguely asked him to improve security.

Having failed vis-a-vis Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, North Korea, and Pakistan, Obama picks a fight with Israel.

The Hussein has exceeded our worst pre-election expectations of him.

Speaking in Washington, Abbas refused to conduct peace talks with Israel until it freezes settlement construction, agreeing de facto to destroy them all and leave 300,000 Jews homeless.

Even Arafat was afraid to speak so bluntly, but Abbas senses that he has Obama’s support against the Jews. Never mind the small print: Abbas’ term expired five months ago, Hamas rejects his authority, and Fatah rejects his government.

Israel continues tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority, which refuses to make peace with it.

As Rabbi Kahane remarked, this country needs a national coach.

The Defense Secretary promised to hold North Korea responsible for any nuclear materials or technology it sells abroad.

Really? What about the Syrian reactor, or the April shipment of highly enriched uranium to Iran?
