Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Hebrew University canceled a tender on selling two buildings in the Kiryat Yovel neighborhood of Jerusalem, which had been won by a haredi company. The ultra-left university administration is careful not to let its real-estate fall into the hands of its ideological enemy.

North Korea’s Foreign Ministry indicated that it is ready for negotiations with the United States, but refused the previously agreed-upon six-nation negotiations format.

The communists understand that it is much easier to wrest concessions from Obama than from China or Russia. The North Koreans refuse disarmament, however, so the purpose of the talks is not clear.

Fearful of accepting responsibility, the Obama Administration refuses to engage in bilateral talks.

In a futile race with the IDF, conservative activists have erected eleven new outposts. So far, they build faster than the Jewish army destroys, but in the end their efforts will amount to a mere bugging of the political establishment. Worse, outpost construction provides a safety valve for the right-wingers’ zeal, and as such is useful to the defeatist government.

The court ruled in favor of extraditing the Abergil brothers to the United States, where the FBI wants them for drug trade. The move won’t make the Promised Land any cleaner, as Shimon Peres and his acolytes remain here, and other criminal families will take over the Abergils’ business.

Very few countries extradite their citizens for foreign prosecution. Israel was once famous for catagorically refusing to extradite Jews, insisting on our right to try them.

Where Obama failed, the Israeli court jumped in, issuing a stop-work order for Jewish construction in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Thousands of Arab houses are built illegally in Israel each year, but why would the court care?

The Welfare Ministry demands 16 million shekels in additional financing for the crisis centers that treat rape victims. While the goal is theoretically laudable, the six centers treat fewer than 600 women a year, which makes the per person cost unreasonable.

Israel’s settler population is now more than 300,000, plus the Jewish residents of East Jerusalem.

The government’s opposition for the past eighteen years to building new settlements has allowed concentration of investments on the existing villages, and considerably improved their living standards. While the kibbutz population dwindles as the new generation leaves the communist farms, the settlers’ children usually stay in the settlements.

Recognizing the need for border adjustments in any future deal with the Palestinians, the Israeli government is mulling evicting from 60 to 250 thousand Jews who have lived in the settlements for up to four generations. There is no discussion of dismantling Arab villages as a way to rectifiy the borders.

Obama sent soothing letters to Arab leaders, asking them to improve relations with Israel.

Immediately, the Arab League rejected the call. The Arab rejection was delivered to Mitchell by the League’s chief, Amr Moussa, a former Egyptian liaison with the PLO.

Unlike the fearful Israeli government, the Arabs are straightforward in rejecting Obama’s nonsense.

Mitchell responded that Obama does not expect the Arabs to sign peace with Israel. So, the Saudi peace initiative is confirmed dead?

A Zoo in El Bureij, Gaza, boasted of several zebras—which proved to be painted donkeys.

The Israeli government allowed “hundreds of tons” of cement into Gaza. Cement was banned before because Hamas uses it to build bunkers and rebuild civilian houses, thus nullifying the effects of Israeli bombardment.

The cement will be used ostensibly by UNRWA, but its institutions in Gaza are permeated by Hamas members. Since Hamas is the only force on the ground, UNRWA and other charities have to cooperate with the terrorists.

While Israel gets all the blame for the blockade, Egypt also blocks cement deliveries to Gaza through Rafah Crossing—both as a matter of cooperation with Israel and out of hatred of Hamas’ Islamic fundamentalists.

The High Court heard the petition by leftists to allow black illegals to live anywhere in Israel. The Interior Ministry is defending its policy of allowing the Africans to live in the far north and south only.

The ministry’s policing does not work anyway, as most illegals reside in Tel Aviv.

The government lacks the guts to deport the illegals to UNRWA camps in Gaza, which must deal with the refugees.

Jawdat Najjar, an Arab from Gaza, beat his daughter to death with an iron chain after he caught her talking to a man on her cellular phone. The twenty-seven-year-old divorced woman already had five children.

But of course they would live with Jews in peace and tranquility.

Limor Goldstein received 3.25 million shekels from the state for suffering brain-damage from a rubber bullet.

His story cannot be true. Obviously, he was brain-damaged before the shooting incident, for only a brain-damaged Jew would demonstrate with our Arab enemies against the security barrier near Bilin.

The soldier who shot Limor won’t be promoted for cleansing our country.

Israeli media, even those with a leftist slant, continue to lash out against Breaking the Silence for publishing a report which details the IDF’s misdeeds in Gaza.

The report details common wartime violations of mores. IDF soldiers indeed sometimes damaged Palestinian property for no military reason, endangered Arab civilians, and shot at everything that moved. Such things weren’t widespread, but they did happen, as they always happen in any war. Soldiers hate their enemies and cannot fight in white gloves.

Instead of admitting these simple truths and disregarding the report, the Israeli media damages its own credibility in order to preserve the silly image they have created for the IDF as a suicidally moral army.

Netanyahu’s government has approved a monthly transfer of 104 million shekels to Gaza. The money pays the salaries of Gaza officials who, incidentally, are loyal to Hamas. In effect, Israel pays them to remain loyal to Hamas rather than become discontent with the terrorist group.

As an opposition leader, Netanyahu lambasted Olmert for much smaller transfers to Gaza.

Military police destroyed a Jewish hut dubbed the ‘Mizpe Avichai outpost’ near Hebron.

An Israeli military court convicted Fouad Shoubaki of financing terrorism. In 2006 IDF rendered Shoubaki, a former associate of Arafat, from a Jericho jail. Palestinians often keep their terrorists nominally in jail to keep them from being arrested by Jews. But if financing terrorism is a crime, how come the Israeli government negotiates peace accords with Abu Ala, Arafat’s former cashier? @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>

Although he refused to listen to the  NGOs’ allegations, the IDF’s Attorney General ordered criminal investigations into fourteen cases of Jewish misconduct in Gaza.

Outrageously, some of the cases concern the use of Palestinians as live shields. The AG would prefer Jewish soldiers to risk their own lives rather than the Palestinians’. Moreover, live Palestinian shields aren’t really in any danger because Hamas never shoots at them.

The Israeli government issued a demarche against the British Embassy after a spokesman for the UK’s government announced that his country finances anti-settlement activities in Israel. Britain finances pro-settlement activities, too—pro-Palestinian settlement that is, including illegal Palestinian construction in East Jerusalem.

This is not news. Everyone knows that Britain and the EU finance Arabs and Jewish ultra-leftists in Israel. But the Israeli government is concerned about its image rather than the facts, and only protested after the aid was publicly announced.

A similar attitude pervades Israel’s negotiations with the Palestinians. Ever since Oslo, Israeli negotiators have secretly offered the Arabs much more than they tell the Jewish public. While publicly refusing to make concessions on Jerusalem, Netanyahu’s government prepared a secret memorandum with James Jones on bringing multinational forces onto the Temple Mount—thus surrendering it to the UN.

Netanyahu bravely defied American pressure to open the crossing by promising Mitchell that he would keep them shut until Shalit is released. That is, until Israel releases 1,400 terrorist murderers in exchange for a corporal from a well-connected leftist family.

At the same time, Netanyahu made an exception for humanitarian cargo, which can mean almost anything.
