Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

The Maariv recently published a letter by Dr. David Zangen, a consultant in Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem. The doctor proudly tells Goldstone that over 50% of his patients are Palestinians from Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

And Jewish taxpayers foot the bill for treating the next generation of terrorists.

The upbeat report of 3.5% annualized GDP growth seems to support Obama’s economic policies.

The actual growth for the quarter is below 1%, well within the margin of statistical error.

Much of the growth is attributable to continually high real-estate prices, propped up by the artificially low mortgage rate.

After Bush and Obama’s administrations injected close to two trillion dollars into the economy, production had to respond with a small increase. If anything, the increase is too small for the amount invested.

Clinton has formally rejected Abbas’ demand that Israel stop settlement construction before peace talks resume. Thus Obama has abandoned yet another ally—Abbas.

Palestinians started demanding the settlement freeze as a precondition only after Obama leaned heavily on Israel to stop the construction. Essentially, Abbas only picked up Obama’s tune that the construction must be stopped immediately.

It would be easy for Obama to change his view, but almost impossible for Abbas to backtrack. If Abbas starts negotiating with Netanyahu despite the ongoing construction, however small, Hamas would trumpet his weakness and further diminish Fatah’s chances in the upcoming elections. To counter Hamas’ propaganda, Fatah will have to employ still more militant rhetoric.

There is nothing to negotiate about: each side knows the other side’s demands. The Palestinians cannot sign peace without the Temple Mount, and the Israeli government is not yet ready to cede it.

Obama’s betrayal of Abbas is similar to his abandonment of Karzai. Rahm Emanuel openly criticizes the embattled Afghani president, Clinton’s political advisor coaches his electoral opponent, and Obama reportedly refuses personal communication with Karzai. No wonder: Obama dislikes Bush’s puppet.

The Attorney General has finally filed an indictment against Israeli Arab MK Baradeh for assaulting policemen during the Niilin riots in 2004.

Justice is far more prompt for Israeli right-wingers, who merely resist police evicting their families.

Israeli media invited Donald Bostrom to a conference in Dimona and paid his travel expenses. Bostrom became famous when he published an article on organ-harvesting by the IDF.
