    The last image with bygone empires and fallen foes is telling both a good and sad story. The latter being once more to make no mention of the elephant in the room. Where in the list is is the caliphate? Where is the Ottoman empire? Where is the Muslim Brotherhood? Where is Iran? Where on the list is what it all boils down to: Islam? Where is the OIC? Until the hour you understand Muhammed’s pseudo-religious ideology is THE arch-enemy of democracy, equality, freedom, peace, civil society and Israel, you have yet to understand who or what has this zealous urge to want you totally subdued or dead.

    BTW – Did the Crusaders really venture to the Levant to destroy the Jewish nation? Was there a self-governing Jewish people at the time for the first Crusade? Or were the Crusaders perhaps motivated by an enemy other than the Jewish people?

    Dear Israel,

    You will be demonised, defamed, condemned by the moronic herd, led by a Goebbels-style media, whatever you do. So in the words of someone whose name I do not remember:

    DONT LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN.

    Israel has an ironclad case in terms of international law, based on the 1922 League of Nations Palestine Mandate, which not only recognized the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and its concomitant right to reconstitute its national home in that country, but also called upon Great Britain, the Mansatory Power, to “encourage close settlement by Jews on the land.” And Article 80 of the UN Charter makes it clear that this League of Nations document continues to be valid to this day. What is missing here is a political leadership in Israel that will assert this right, loud and clear, and challenge the world’s “legal experts” to tell us how, in the light of this background, they can defend their tired old mantra that “the settlements are illegal.” We have the Oslo syndrome to thank for our failure to shake this false international assumption: The “Spirit of Oslo” demanded that we “let bygones be bygones,” and our ironclad case was swept under the carpet. But Oslo is dead (Mahmoud Abbas dealt it its final blow with his unilateral move at the UN last week). So isn’t it time to start telling our story, citing chapter and verse? If it’s not too late, that is.

      Moshe. I am with you 1,000%

      Brilliant summation – confirmed by the Levy Report.

      Israel needs to start firing some diplomatic rockets at those 138 nations who voted as they did in the UN last week to supposedly deny any knowledge of the facts you have so succinctly stated.

      The warheads of those rockets should contain hundreds of thousands of pamphlets containing the contents of your post.

      Acting in clear breach of its own Charter the UN is well on the way to ending any justification for its continued existence.

  4. What right has any nation to tell us where we can build in our own country???
    These building plans have been in the pipeline for years–how come only now are they worth condemning Israel!!!!

    Strange ad. I hope JWire was well compensated for publishing it!

    The world has recently shown its true colors no matter what Israel does ,it will not be supported their human rights or past concessions to the Palestinians means nothing , Muslim population , growing Immigration and the power of their numbers to politicians and their intimidation and violence if they don’t get what they want,Arab Oil, all add up to Israel having to do what it must do.

    This message says it all so clearly and succinctly at a time when the United Nations seems hell bent on abandoning its legal obligations to the Jews under the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine and article 80 of the United Nations Charter.

    The United Nations seems destined to end up going the way of other Empires listed in this message if it continues to ignore its own Charter.

    The Jewish people need to stay focused on continuing to reconstitute the Jewish National Home in former Palestine in accordance with the rights conferred in international law and to resist any attempt to delegitimize, denigrate or eradicate the Jewish State of israel.

    In the words of a famous song:

    “You’ve got to accentuate the positive
    Eliminate the negative
    And latch on to the affirmative
    Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

    You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
    Bring gloom down to the minimum
    Have faith or pandemonium’s
    Liable to walk upon the scene

    To illustrate my last remark
    Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
    What did they do just when everything looked so dark?

    (Man, they said “We’d better accentuate the positive”)
    (“Eliminate the negative”)
    (“And latch on to the affirmative”)
    Don’t mess with Mister In-Between (No!)
    Don’t mess with Mister In-Between\”

    As we shortly celebrate Channukah – take joy in looking at the following video that shows one small aspect of what Jews are accomplishing in the fields of medicine, science and technology in the midst of unbridled hatred and racism that could have and should have ended 65 years ago – yet still shows no sign of ever ending.

    Our oppressors have disappeared and it is we who are still here today to continue to light the Channukiah.

    Channukah Sameach.

  8. There are no bad Jews. Some Jews may behave badly, but there are no bad Jews. That’s just how it is. That’s why Jews live on, that’s why Nations hate, that’s why Nations crumble.

    And the Shoah? The Nations’ time is running out to give an adequate response. I suggest sackcloth and ashes.
