Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Three decades ago, a black preacher became Carter’s ambassador to the UN and tried “non-standard” approaches to Middle East and African diplomacy. According to Andy, all problems could be resolved if leaders would just talk to each other like human beings in the privacy of their homes. Andy built great relations with Muslim dictators and African tyrants and legitimized the PLO and North Vietnamese communists, but he failed to solve a single political problem.

Since then, the simple lesson to be learned from his failure has been forgotten: no amount of talking and ingenious approaches can solve real political differences; they must be fought over.

To everyone who followed developments in the UN in the 1970s, Obama is a carbon copy of Andy Young: same methods, same attitudes.

After the Russians rejected sanctions on Iran, Obama had a phone conversation with Medvedev about “non-standard approaches” to the Iranian problem. How about dropping this Harvard nonsense and just bombing the ayatollahs in the most standard way?

Yesterday, we laughed at the Public Security Minister’s announcement of impending demolitions in East Jerusalem.

Today, the demolition plans were publicly retracted under US pressure.

(How about if Israel were to protest eminent-domain house demolitions in Florida?)

The Israeli establishment lashed out against Medvedev for his suggestion that Hamas be included in the political process. We’ve been arguing for Hamas’ involvement for years.

And why not? The PLO was welcomed into the UN even while it took a rejectionist stance toward Israel. The PLO has since then somewhat recognized Israel’s right to exist (what a concession from the terrorists!) only after 13 years of involvement in the political process.

The only thing which precludes Israel from talking to Hamas is the personal ambitions of Jewish leaders, who are heavily involved with Fatah both emotionally and financially.

Russia has announced its plans to build a nuclear reactor in Turkey, and possibly in Syria as well. Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Turkey have active plans for nuclear development—peaceful, if we’re to trust their words.
