Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Jerusalem mayor Barkat declared that the US calls for a construction freeze in East Jerusalem are “a slap in the face.”

Is this the same Barkat who quietly halted all municipal planning for Jewish construction in East Jerusalem two months ago?

Public Security Minister Aharonovitch called on the government to improve its policies for dealing with illegal African immigration. Never mind that he must be doing just that instead of heaping declarations on the government.

According to the minister, some 400 blacks enter Israel illegally every week. That would amount to 20,000 a year, or some 100,000 black illegals altogether. Previously, the government had estimated that criminal, HIV-ridden mass to number about 40,000.

If Jews grant them citizenship, the Africans will start bringing hordes of their relatives here in family reunion schemes, and their numbers will quickly explode into millions.

Haunted by a scandal in which one of its own correspondents spied on Israeli national security, Haaretz has found a way to strike back.

The newspaper revealed that in the last year, the Knesset’s web site mistakenly published detailed minutes of deliberations on top-secret systems for the Defense Ministry. The web pages were soon removed, but they remained in the caches of search engines, available to potential spies. The Defense Ministry asked Israeli journalists to keep quiet about this matter so as not to attract enemy spies.

Haaretz defied the request and disclosed the sensitive leak.

Immediately after the crash of the Polish president’s plane, we suspected assassination.

Enough data has emerged since then to prove our suspicions. The plane allegedly fell from 6-8 meters, but its parts were spread over vast territory. Three quarters of the bodies were recognizable only by DNA tests, though crashes usually leave bodies relatively intact. That’s an explosion, not a crash landing.

Four shots are clearly heard on the black box recorders. The Russian claim that the guards’ firearms went off is nonsense: the shooting took place before the crash.

The Polish plane was equipped with TAWS-A avionics, which would have warned the pilot 500 feet from the surface. There is no way a TAWS-equipped plane can hit a forest by mistake. TAWS-A configuration would also warn pilots of a significant deviation from the runway, making it impossible for them to miss the glideslope by so much.

There is no doubt that the Poles were murdered.

As Likud polls open throughout the country, Netanyahu is calling on its members to vote against the internal elections.

The change to Likud’s charter, which is opposed by Moshe Feiglin’s supporters, would delay internal elections, possibly bringing the liar Netanyahu down.

Bibi knows that his chances of winning Likud elections are slim after he gave in to Obama’s demands on East Jerusalem and allowed Iran to go nuclear.

* The defeat relates to the fact that Netanyahu knows he would lose primaries in his own party, and therefore tries to postpone them.

Four US clients in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, and Jordan, have announced their plans for “peaceful” nukes. Their plans cannot be credible: unlike Iran, the sheikhdoms lack engineers to operate the facilities. It takes someone more educated than the Bedouins to run nuclear programs.

The sheikhdoms wouldn’t risk a squabble with Iran on their own, which means they were encouraged by the US. Obama’s reasoning is straightforward: tell Iran that it would gain no comparative advantage by producing the bomb.

Hussein the president is wrong on two counts. First, ayatollahs deal in apocalypse rather than realpolitik; they would welcome a Middle East riddled with nuclear weapons. Second, they are much smarter than the Harvard graduate, and know that the Arabs won’t be able to develop the bomb.

Jordan’s princeling Abdullah demanded that Israel “stop unilateral moves in the occupied territories.”

When it ruled the West bank, Jordan banned all universities there—as well as almost all newspapers and all political associations—and killed Palestinians in throngs. Jordan financed thousands of buildings in ghost villages in the West Bank to stake the land.

For Israel to stop making unilateral moves means accepting unilateral moves by the Arabs.

The US State Department demanded that Israel live up to her “responsibilities” and remove dozens of Jewish hamlets dubbed “illegal outposts.” Our government promised to remove them, true.

How about Palestinian promises to dismantle their terrorist groups and stop anti-Israeli incitement? Or Obama’s promise to prevent Iran from going nuclear?

Israeli unemployment has declined to 7.3%, according to Bank of Israel, a slight improvement over the crisis bottom a year ago.

That would mean about 350,000 unemployed adults, an estimate way too low considering that Arab women are predominantly unemployed and most Arab men work in the black-market economy while receiving unemployment benefits. Add haredim, the professional unemployed from the development towns, and Ethiopian hordes on welfare, and the total number of unemployed cannot be below 1.1 million, some 20% of the country’s adults.

BoI, however, reports just below 200,000 unemployed, or one fifth of the actual number.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to close down the Wisconsin program which put tens of thousands of welfare recipients to work. The Labor Ministry and trade unions did not like competition.

Two thousand of the Likud Central Committee’s members voted to change the party’s charter and postpone internal elections.

Netanyahu, accordingly, received carte blanche for another year of defeatist policies. The country’s fate was decided by 0.04% of its voters.
