What exactly means East Jerusalem? I’ve never heard of the international community criticize the Jews’ building Jewish homes in West Jerusalem. Have I?)

‘Haaretz fiddled with Obama poll’ Mar 22, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post

Poll: Most Israelis support EAST Jerusalem Mar 22, 2010 / By Ynetnews
1. 62% don’t believe Netanyahu’s disavowal of knowledge during Biden-fiasco… despite support for Ramat Shlomo homes.
2. 54% believe Israel must consider Washington’s stance on the expansion of settlements, even due to “natural growth”.
3. However, MOST support PM Netanyahu: Building in Jerusalem is like building in Tel-Aviv, despite the recent US-fiasco, with 41% saying that only the timing was wrong.
4. Only 25% believe the construction project should not have been approved.
5. Even though just 6% have lived or had family living beyond the 1967 borders, 47% objected to the evacuation of all West Bank settlements in favor of an agreement with the Palestinians.
6. (… bla-bla-bla…) The figures show a waning support for settlements, as the same poll conducted in 2001 found that 61% agreed with the decision, while just 28% did not.
7. NO need to report Israeli electorates’ mysterious mind, and therefore, NO need to report how many Israelis support the two-state solution as long as PM Bibi has NO intention to speak in ONE tongue and lead his natural allies in a reasonable, realistic or more patriotic way.

Bibi: PM Netanyahu will resume West Bank Settlement Activity Sep 29, 2008 / By Israeli Media
JIWON: It was right after my report, Everyone is a target: Sternhell attack shows that far right may target anyone who holds different views (RED FLAG for the RIGHT), which was 4 days after ‘Settler’s bombing the Jew’ and 2 days after ‘Settlers’ another attack on Palestinian village’. After this report, Mr. Netanyahu resumes his job. I feel that I am reading not the Jewish articles but a comic book. Still, a human life is not a toy-story for me. This is why I prefer targeted killing to suicide bombing. (Please read my life. Dear Palestinians, (Concerning Barenboim’s Divan-Project) (Sep 25-30, 2008).)
What if Jewish Diehard-Doves were really killed by Bibi’s Settlers? IS IT SETTLER’s FAULT? While those pure spirits consider IT as a punishment, (Holy site closed to ‘punish’ settlers,) Mr. Netanyahu seems to treat himself as another-Sharon, who was ‘quickly’ elected as 11th PM after the Second Intifada. Considering the fact that there was NO Phoenix-Bibi in my Knesset-blog in those days… Hum…
What if I travel all over the world, including UN, and plead Palestinian Right to Targeted Killing of THESE?
BIBI/GLICK & READERS: WE ARE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR to UN and Supreme Court Inside/Outside Israel
WILL IT STILL SOUND LIKE A COMIC BOOK?

(JIWON: Therefore, a series of happenings or… “And the cycle continues,” as the saying goes.)

Gideon Levy: Thank you, Eli Yishai, for exposing the peace process masquerade Mar 11, 2010 / By Haaretz
Here’s someone new to blame for everything: Eli Yishai. After all, Benjamin Netanyahu wanted it so much, Ehud Barak pressed so hard, Shimon Peres wielded so much influence – and along came the interior minister and ruined everything. (…) As always, we need Yishai (and occasionally Avigdor Lieberman) to expose our true face, without the mask and lies, and play the enfant terrible who shouts that the emperor has no clothes. (…) Everything was so ready, so ripe, until that scoundrel, Yishai, came and kicked it all into oblivion. It’s a bit embarrassing, but not so terrible. After all, time heals all wounds. The Americans will soon forgive, the Palestinians will have no choice, and once again everyone will stand ceremoniously on the platform and the process will be “jump-started” again – despite everything that the sole enemy of peace around here, Eli Yishai, has done to us.

PM sparks Germany’s anger in latest East Jerusalem construction spat Mar 21, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) A senior German source who requested anonymity said Merkel had called Netanyahu after a request from the White House. … the conversation was very tense, no less than the one with Clinton. (…) Merkel did not want news of the telephone conversation to be released; this would spare Netanyahu embarrassment and prevent damage to the special ties between Israel and Germany. The German chancellor promised to refrain (…) In the briefing, the Israelis made clear that it was the prime minister who had called the chancellor in an effort to rally her support. The fact that Merkel was highly critical of the prime minister during the talk was not mentioned. (… easy to imagine Merkel’s response: Lebanese premier to discuss Middle East peace-or-WAR with Merkel…) The tensions with Germany follow an earlier rift, last August, when National Security Advisor Arad clashed with (Merkel’s chief advisor) Heusgen in telephone conversations preceding Netanyahu’s visit to Berlin. Arad demanded that the settlements not be raised in the talks between the two leaders or during the press conference that would follow. The issue turned ugly, with Arad shouting at Heusgen. The result is that the Germans only communicate with Arad on urgent or technical issues.

(JIWON: By now, all the visitors of this blog should know what means “Biden-fiasco”. NO need to report about Quartet or EU, such as Quartet calls on Israel to freeze all or EU: Jerusalem is not Tel Aviv. Time will pass and things will return to normal. The same will go to PM sparks Germany’s anger in Biden-fiasco. Only GOD will freeze ALL, whether YHWH or ALLAH… Until then, Israel will always regain an usual smile and be toward Turning into Theocracy or Thugocracy or Bibicracy.)

(…) It was the second time in less than a month that the Prime Minister met with American leaders at the same time that Israeli officials issued a statement about construction for Jews in parts of Jerusalem that the United States does not recognize as being under Israeli sovereignty. Unlike the previous public anger by American officials, no comments were made about the announcement, nor were substantive reports issued about the subjects that the two leaders discussed. The meeting also coincided with another spate of Arab stoning attacks on Jews in Judea and Samaria with the intention of causing fatal accidents. Neither the United States nor Israel referred to the continuing attacks, which the Palestinian Authority is committed to halt, along with all other violence and incitement against the Jewish State.

Anti-Defamation League’s Foxman Continues to Go After Gen. Petraeus Mar 22, 2010 / By Washington Independent

(JIWON: If I were Anti-Defamation League’s Foxman or any member of AIPAC, I would never give up criticizing General Petraeus until it finally triggers a public debate that is much more robust and better informed than it would otherwise have been. In my humble opinion, there is absolutely NO reason for Republican Jews or Evangelists to avoid this PUBLIC DEBADE.)

Conservatives Who Demanded We ‘Listen To’ And ‘Stand Behind’ Gen. Petraeus Now Disregard Him Mar 16, 2010 / By Think Progress
(…) While conservatives are currently on the offensive against Petraeus’s concerns today, they thought differently in 2007. As the country was heatedly debating our policies in Iraq, leading conservatives demanded that we listen to Petraeus and agree with the views he advocated: (…) General Petraeus is hardly the only defense official who has warned that failing to bring a just end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can lead to Muslim radicalization and endanger our troops. In 2004, the Defense Science Board Task Force noted that our “one sided support in favor of Israel” and failure to resolve the conflict was a leading source of “threats to America’s national security.” Given how eager the right was to endorse Petraeus’s Iraq solution in 2007, will they listen to him, CENTCOM, and other defense officials about the dangers of not acting to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

Obama meets Afghanistan General McChrystal aboard Air Force One Oct 2, 2009 / By Amrybase.us
(…) The situation “is serious and I choose that word very, very carefully… neither success nor failure can be taken for granted,” said McChrystal (…) The process could take weeks, officials say, warning that past conflicts like the Vietnam war have shown the folly of throwing thousands of men into a fight that is not properly defined. Asked if he was worried that the political debate was holding up military action, McChrystal said: “I think the more debate we have the healthier this is going to be.” “I don’t think we have the luxury of going so fast we make the wrong decision,” he added.

McChrystal clear: Even with more troops, victory not certain Sep 21, 2009 / By Interact.stltoday
(…) Gen. McChrystal’s report was intended for President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates. It became public Monday, in redacted form, after Bob Woodward of The Washington Post obtained a copy. Its early publication has amplified a debate that Mr. Obama had hoped to postpone until later this fall. Many congressional Democrats are leery of committing more troops to Afghanistan. Most Republicans, remembering that the Taliban government harbored Osama bin Laden during the planning for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, are reflexively in favor of “victory.” Thoughtful people on both sides of the debate will benefit from reading Gen. McChrystal’s assessment of what victory means. The former head of the Joint Special Operations Command is nobody’s idea of a kinder, gentler warrior. But his vision of the way forward has more to do with diplomacy and politics than it does with military tactics.

McChrystal issues directive on civilian casualties July 7, 2009 / By Stripes.com

Free General McChrystal Oct 7, 2009 / By American Spectator, John Guardiano
(…) The United States suffers from too much public ignorance and apathy about U.S. military requirements. … That’s why it is imperative that U.S. military leaders speak publicly and often about wartime requirements and defense policy — not to advocate particular policies, which they should not do, but rather to inform and educate the public. … The United States, after all, prides itself on having an educated and professional military. Thus, U.S. military leaders are not mere functionaries. (…) The general is a wartime military commander, not a politician. His job is to “report the facts as he sees them — and to do so without favor or prejudice, and without fear or concern for any potential political ramifications back home.” The political questions are best left to the politicians and the pundits. But the military facts on the ground in Afghanistan, and what must be done to remedy the situation there, certainly fall within McChrystal’s purview of responsibility and expertise. (…) U.S. military leaders absolutely must work within the chain of command; however, the chain of command is a two-way street. It runs up to the commander-in-chief, President Barrack Obama; and it runs down to the young sergeants and corporals who are risking their lives in Helmet Province. General McChrystal is accountable to both. … Indeed, McChrystal’s recent public pronouncements are about keeping faith with his young charges. (…) The United States, remember, is a constitutional democracy. The American people do not serve the military; the military serves the American people. That’s why public dialogue and public discussion about military matters are so crucially important (…)

How Soon Liberals Forget: Is McChrystal the New Shinseki? Oct 6, 2009 / By The New Republic, William Galston
(…) The current situation is entirely different. McChrystal is offering his professional judgment well in advance of a presidential decision. Yes, he’s doing it in public, but that’s something that small-“d” democrats should welcome. Combined with the leaking of his report, his London speech has triggered a public debate that is much more robust and better informed than it would otherwise have been. Jones suggested that military advice should “come up through the chain of command,” while Gates chastised that it is “imperative” that military and civilian leaders “provide our best advice to the president candidly but privately.” How quickly we forget: That was the rationale used to muzzle General Eric Shinseki during the run up to the Iraq war. Wouldn’t we have been better off to have had a no-holds-barred debate involving senior military officials prior to the invasion about the number of troops it would take to stabilize Iraq after the invasion? Wouldn’t we have had the kind of public discussion that the American people deserved but did not get? Does McChrystal’s speech put pressure on the president, as some have charged? Sure, and what’s wrong with that? The general is saying that the mission the president articulated back in March after a thorough policy review requires more troops than are now on the ground in Afghanistan. If he’s right about that, the president owes the country one of two things: send the troops or redefine the mission. McChrystal’s intervention makes it more difficult to fudge the decision. In my book, that’s a good thing. And people who don’t want more troops sent should agree.

Ephraim Kam: Would Palestinian state stymie Iran’s plans? Mar 23, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Petraeus painted a similar picture last year in front of the same panel, without attracting attention. But this time his analysis was seen as part of the pressure that the Obama administration is putting on Israel (…) But the Obama administration had better not delude itself. The Arab street does not support America … An Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement will not solve America’s problems with Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan or Al-Qaida.

(JIWON: This is not a matter of whether I agree with this opinion or not. If this writer is so sure of his opinion, I wonder why President Peres was in support of Bush administration’s Iraq war… IN A LOUD VOICE, when EVERYBODY was against it. I remember this because this is when I learned one more FACT about Israel. Now, I am reading what I am reading. And I now know that expressing my personal opinion is simply waste of time.)

Analysis: Is there a shift in US military thinking? Mar 22, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
(…) One possibility that some officials raised on Sunday was that Petraeus was setting up Israel as the scapegoat for the US military when it pulls out of Iraq and Afghanistan. As the officer in charge of both those ongoing conflicts, Petraeus will be the one blamed or credited with their outcome. By saying that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict undermines America’s interests in the region, he is laying the groundwork for a defense should the area destabilize when the US pulls out. (…)

Analysis: Is there a shift in US military thinking? Mar 22, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
(…) Secondly, Petraeus’s comments could have an impact on the American public’s perception of Israel and might affect the $3 billion in military aid the US provides Israel annually. (…)

Barak, Mubarak mull coaxing Abbas to negotiating table Jan 27, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Egyptian president does insist that the United States provide the Palestinian leader with clear guarantees signifying a clear American position. The source said that the guarantees must include a commitment that the territory of an independent Palestine would be defined by the 1967 borders, and that any changes to that will be subject to negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel. Egypt also demands that the American statement refer to Jerusalem, the eastern part of which would be recognized as the Palestinian capital. The guarantees statement has become a major point of contention between Egypt and the United States and the cause of a public argument between Egypt and Qatar. Qatar says that an Egyptian delegation that visited Washington ten days ago did not demand any guarantees from the United States, in contradiction to the Arab Monitoring Committee decision in September. After initial denials, Egypt issued a statement, saying it did indeed demand guarantees from the United States but appears to have failed to obtain American agreement.

Olmert’s ex-negotiator: Full Mideast peace deal impossible Jan 25, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) According to Dekel the Palestinians refused to show any flexibility in their positions during the talks, preferring to remain stalemated rather than lower their aspirations. “The Palestinian approach was in principle the demand of 100% of their rights from 1967. The practical aspect interested them less. They are not willing to discuss any further compromise,” he said. “We tried to build scenarios, some of them were imaginary, about specific compromises, but we found the Palestinians taking an approach of ‘all or nothing.’”

(… NO need to post PA officials’ hatred of American Fayyad…) Nonetheless, a quarterly survey conducted in December 2009 by Dr. Khalil Shikaki’s Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research found that only 13% of the residents of the Palestinian territories wanted Fayyad as their vice president – more said they preferred the imprisoned Marwan Barghouti or the prime minister of the Hamas government in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh. However, about 40% of the respondents graded the Fayyad government’s performance as “good” or “very good,” as opposed to 25% who called it “poor” or “very poor.” (…) Even Fayyad, considered the ultimate moderate, sees East Jerusalem as an integral part of Palestine, and its Jewish neighborhoods as settlements.

(…) when the PA president announced, following a meeting in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said that the Palestinians would return to the negotiating table if Israel “halted settlement construction” and accepted the 2003 road map for peace in the Middle East. Abbas did not repeat his earlier condition for a complete and unlimited cessation of construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. Nor did he repeat his previous demand that the international community recognize the June 4, 1967, boundaries as the future borders of a Palestinian state. Since Israel has already suspended settlement construction in the West Bank and has no objections to the road map, Abbas will have no problem justifying a decision to resume the talks.

Moshe Arens: Obama chasing rainbows with two-state solution Jan 25, 2010 / By Haaretz
It is not just that, during this past year, Obama has learned what old Middle East hands have known all along – that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is an intractable problem – but also that intractable problems do not easily get solved, if they are at all soluble, even when the president of the United States weighs in with full force. (…) Abbas, who is vainly being asked by Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu to negotiate a peace agreement with Israel, is in no position to implement any such agreement he might sign, and is probably not even in a position to reach an agreement that would be acceptable to Israel. So how can you reach a two-state solution? And who will tell Obama that in seeking a two-state solution, he is chasing the rainbow? Where is the person who – like the little boy in Hans Christian Andersen’s tale who saw the emperor was not wearing any clothes – will tell the U.S. president that the two-state solution, at least for now, is an impossible dream, and that if he continues to pursue this dream he is in for more disappointment? It is not going to be any of his advisers, who urged him to demand a total freeze on building in Judea and Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem – thus making it possible for Abbas to stall on any negotiations with Israel. It is not going to be Obama’s friends at J Street. And Netanyahu has evidently decided to play along, rather than confront Obama with alternate ideas.

(JIWON: So… did anyone really believe PM Netanyahu genuinely did not know? What a pathetic fool… I must say.)

(…) If Bibi genuinely did not know, as he foolishly claims, that 1,600 more homes were being planned for East Jerusalem, he does not deserve to be prime minister. If he did know, and permitted Interior Minister Eli Yishai to announce the plan exactly during the visit of Joe Biden, who is both U.S. vice president and a friend to Israel, then there are two possibilities, each worse than the other: either stupidity or fear of the extremists in his cabinet. Either way, he is playing with fire. (…)

(…) His words come in the midst of a 10-month moratorium on new construction in the settlements, a move that has sown seeds of doubt in the minds of many regarding his commitment to the settlement movement. The heads of the three settlement concentrations, all of whom are members of the Likud party, have in the past attacked Netanyahu for instituting the freeze in late November. On Sunday, however, Ma’aleh Adumim Mayor Kashriel said he saw Netanyahu’s visit as a significant gesture, particularly given that he made it on the same day that he met with Mitchell. (…)

Even our best friends, who for years saved us from UN Security Council vetoes, believe that Israel must quit the territories and withdraw to the western side of the separation fence – a secure and widely recognized border – with or without an agreement. This is the conclusion one reaches with a fair reading of Security Council resolutions 242 and 338, the Bill Clinton parameters and the letters exchanged between George W. Bush and Ariel Sharon.

All of these propose a comprehensive peace in exchange for a withdrawal to the 1967 borders, with minor, reciprocal border adjustments and an agreed solution to the refugee problem. In fact, the tariff has remained the same since the PLO’s 1988 declaration of an independent Palestinian state. Netanyahu also avers that he has accepted the principle of two states for two peoples.

Even the fabled David Ben-Gurion, who declared the existence of Israel’s third kingdom at the end of the Sinai Campaign in 1956, caved in two days later and agreed to withdraw from the peninsula. The combined threat of Dwight Eisenhower and the Soviet leaders was enough to reverse Ben-Gurion’s promise that “we will not stand idly by when we are under attack – especially when the attack is unjustified.” Netanyahu is not Ben-Gurion. He has a weaker personality (…)

He proposes removing $has’ IM Yishai, who was behind the whole affair. But Makovsky has lived in Israel, in part as a Haaretz journalist, long enough to know that while he has an interesting idea, it’s not realistic. Getting in a tangle with President Barack Obama is one thing, but Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is an entirely different story. It seems that Netanyahu will find it easier to give back Jerusalem than get rid of Yishai.

It clears the way for a robust Israeli response, one that will set the course of Israeli policy and the guidelines of future discussions. PM Netanyahu now has the opportunity to defend Israel’s position, not only on Jerusalem, but other issues of Israeli sovereignty that have been disputed.

Yishai told Netanyahu, according to the Shas chairman’s associates, that the public would not understand why Israel was apologizing for building in Jerusalem when the capital is not part of the West Bank moratorium. A source close to Netanyahu said that the prime minister “appreciated Yishai’s behavior” during the crisis.

By the way, I’ve been suspecting if Kadima’s Settler MK Schneller has been volunteering to work for Likud’s government. PM Bibi still(?) talks with such regal dignity as NOT to order the former consultant to then-PM Barak at Camp David to spy on Kadima MKs, and therefore, this is perhaps the only way for Kadima No.27 to behave like Kadima No.2. Now, after studying Schneller’s colorful history, whose defection to the new Kadima party amazed many, I start feeling pity on Opposition leader Livni, who has been enduring all the copycats of DM Barak’s flip-flop.

Netanyahu is absolutely right. Since 1967 no Israeli government stopped building in Jerusalem, east or west. (…) Abbas is also absolutely right. Since 1967 no country has recognized the annexation of East Jerusalem to the State of Israel. Moreover, west and east Jerusalem do not host a single embassy. Even George W. Bush, considered a fervent Zionist, made sure every six months to sign a deferment to the 1995 legislation on moving the U.S. embassy to Israel’s capital. (…) Obama is also right. … Unfortunately, the Americans had hoped that Israel would not surprise them by … Biden-fiasco (…) Ahmadinejad is justifiably thrilled. Jerusalem is the preferred arena for Iran (…) The American election year is an open season for the pro-Israel lobby, whose influence on both parties, including Obama’s, is great. “United Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people” was always the Judgment Day weapon of the Israeli and Jewish right during its assaults on Capitol Hill. The story of Ramat Shlomo reminds all those who truly love Jerusalem that this tough city is the cornerstone of peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and between the city and the three monotheistic religions who believe that it is holy. (…) Jerusalem will burn. If it doesn’t happen tomorrow, then the day after. The crisis over the construction freeze is a last-minute cry of distress. There is no more room for proximity talks and more trips by presidential envoys, whatever their rank. This is the time for the leader of the greatest superpower to pull out the Obama plan for two states with Jerusalem as their capital.

I refuse to demonize her as some do on the left, but I don’t think her policies are good for the US. While it may be true that some evangelicals love Israel (only to convert), the vast majority of those who would vote for her are rampantly anti-Semitic. I’ve seen and heard this my whole life. / Yishai, USA 2/13/201019:00

(JIWON: Jerusalem Post has been weird. It has been functioning as a Bibiton, Of course. In recent days, however… it looked as if this Israeli media, which main target is Diaspora Jews, was launching a specific campaign. Not enough information on this specific article such as ‘Hamas losing control over Strip’. No report on Feiglin’s Victory in Likud. Netanyahu’s Party Plans Foiled (Mar 4, 2010). And finally, Netanyahu: The Indirect “Proximity-Talks” won’t start where they left off… (Olmert-Abbas) (Mar 6, 2010).

As usual, it started with President Peres.)

Warmonger’s Column One: Sarah Palin’s friendship Feb 12, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post, Deputy Managing Editor
Talkbacks for this article ???
92. What a collection!: Amazing! Most of the comments make me think that the authors have never listened to Mrs. Palin – an ignorant mendacious bigot, playing on fear and hatred of the dim. This princess of the right will throw Israel under the bus the moment she finds that expedient. Few dissenters in this talkback are drowned in a veritable deluge of the unwise, to put it mildly. Apparently, there’s something in Mrs. Glick’s article which attracts this audience… Bravo! / S.L.FishUSA2/13/201007:50

(Updated on JANUARY 19-22, 2010)
JIWON: (…) The case may be different, but this is also how I imagine the degree of Palestinian corruption. (…)

(JIWON: And a series of happenings, along with Netanyahu Wife-Nanny scandal.)

Peres to Abbas: Resume talks or face new intifada Jan 22, 2010 / By Haaretz
1. I am a friend of Abu Mazen. He says the Americans put him in a high tree and took the ladder away. Some of the mistakes were made by him. His expectations of Obama were created by him. He thought that Obama would take the Palestinian side. … I can understand his feelings of disappointment.
2. Netanyahu could not freeze construction in Jerusalem because “Jerusalem is under the jurisdiction of the Israeli parliament.”
3. Abu Mazen wants Netanyahu to declare the 1967 borders. He cannot. The 1967 borders are 40 years past. … On the other hand, I do not think we have to take territory from them. More or less, we can give them the same amount of land while changing the borders due to of security considerations. Israel had accepted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s plan in this vein, and “I told Abu Mazen to accept it too.”
4. There is no Arab support because there is no Arab [unity]. I was informally approached by Saudi Arabia to accept their paper, which calls for us making peace with Syria on their conditions.

Akiva Eldar: What would Netanyahu do without Peres? ‎Jan 24, 2010 / By Ha’aretz‎
Last spring President Peres went all the way to the White House to convince the heads of the U.S. administration that “peace is at the top of the agenda” for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Perhaps this is what U.S. President Obama meant when he told Time magazine that, had he foreseen earlier the political problems between the two sides he would have been careful not to place expectations so high. (…) According to Peres, only Abbas is to blame. Not Netanyahu in any way. (…) During his visit to Cairo two months ago Peres promised that, immediately after negotiations begin, Netanyahu will not only make do with an absolute freeze on “legal” construction in settlements, but will also evacuate the illegal outposts. (…) It’s totally natural that he’d be willing to serve a Likud government. But last week Peres managed to surprise. (…Peres to Abbas: Resume talks or face new intifada…)

(JIWON: And then, Labor’s Barak, Likud’s Netanyahu and Yisrael Beiteinu’s Lieberman followed President Peres. Therefore, a series of happenings again.)

The settlers and their allies should be thanking their God for their good fortune. Ehud Barak (…) Everything, it seems, has already been said about him and his flip-flops and deceit. His skin has grown so tough that arrows of criticism slip off his oily complacency. What difference would another arrow, more or less, make? Barak is following in the footsteps of Golda, Galili, Dayan and Peres. Begin and Sharon found the work had been done. Labor has always been the great legitimizer of the occupation’s evils. This is the historical mission it has taken on, and no other party could have done it better. Now Labor is legitimizing another evil. (…) This college, soon to become a university, has not scored any impressive achievement. It is far inferior to other Israeli colleges. (…) Barak will be remembered – among other things – for his unique contribution to degrading higher education in Israel. (…) No doubt, Barak’s move will raise more calls to boycott Israeli universities and academics. (…)

Barak: Leftists causing doubts about peace. Responsible leftist officials’ must support peace process, not bolster skepticism Jan 25, 2010 / By Ynetnews

1. Left?: In any other country, somebody like Barak would be considered a big right wing capitalist, not a representative of the left. How can he consider himself as a leftist when he seeks money and power? Is that congruent? / Ricardo Macher, KarneiShomron Israel (01.25.10)
2. Arrant nonsense: This man has reduced the Labour Party to nothing. He has joined the coterie of individuals who are slowly and surely destroying our country bit by bit from within. He makes promises he never keeps. He removed a couple of caravans when he should have been enforcing a 10 month freeze. He has granted a college University status. He is in the process of legitimizing the settlement enterprise and in so doing is sowing the seeds for our implosion. / Ussishkin, Tel Aviv, Israel (01.25.10)

5. Leftists causing doubts about peace?: Who woulda thought it! My oh my Mr. Barak. DM Mr. Barak why don’t you admit the truth by outlining the fact you in a way are part of the problem which encourages the leftists who are the bane for Israel. It is you being a labourite who is the culprit. Why not join Likud in earnest, without equivocation and dissimulation. My point for what is worth. I am very disappointed by your empty efforts that bears no fruitful outcome with the constant meetings with Mitchell. Time to forget the peace process. It was/is dead in the water D.M Barak. No point in prolonging the agony we have tried this peace process for ages. But when the opposition, i.e PA still continue the demands that are unacceptable for us, time has come to put a stop to the discussions.

1. The Two of Us: Maybe they can swap jobs or better, jobshare! / Resistor (02.11.10)
2. Replace Barak with Askenazi – end of problem! / martin, Tel Aviv (02.11.10)

(JIWON: As for Ehud Barak, I still don’t know what to do. I am not against any Knesset MKs. I am only against those who belong to Beinisch-Circle and their hypocrisy because of their way to manipulate my life. If I insult National Union MKs in public, it’s only because they never sit at the negotiation table. Have I ever insulted Settler Noam Federman, who is not interested in his Knesset life? This poor Jew is still pouring his private fortune to reach his Utopia-or-Hallucination.

Therefore, my opinion so far is purely based on his achievement as Labor’s leader, who brought his party into Bibi’s right-wing government, simply because Defense Ministry was all he wanted at any expense. I still suspect if he has been a core member of Beinisch-Circle, who tried to get rid of me, though…)

Security and Defense: ‘This is peaceful, but fragile’ Feb 12, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
(…) The idea of extending Ashkenazi’s term has been in the air ever since the government successively extended the terms of both Mossad chief Meir Dagan and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) chief Yuval Diskin. If the security challenges are so grave that these two need to stay in their posts, why not Ashkenazi as well? The difference is that in the case of Diskin and Dagan, the man who makes the decision is the prime minister and not the defense minister, who wants to become the prime minister. The Channel 1 report about the possible extension of Ashkenazi’s tenure infuriated Barak’s office, since it appeared that the IDF was dictating to the Defense Ministry what to do and not the opposite, as Barak believes it is supposed to be. Barak, who wants to return one day to lead the country, cannot be seen as being led; he needs to be leading. The tension between Barak and Ashkenazi also has its roots in earlier disagreements about appointments in the General Staff (…)

Yoel Marcus: The case of Israeli Defense Minister Feb 12, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Even in the days when civil war erupted over who would be chief of staff, the defense minister’s office never issued such a severe reprimand to an IDF brigadier general. In effect, this was an irritated defense minister criticizing the chief of staff: Such censure is not issued without approval at the highest level. This country has experienced tense relations between chiefs of staff and defense ministers before (… Ashkenazi is a better human being… a better chief of staff than…) A retired general who has seen everything and been through everything described the exchange between the two as a disgrace and an embarrassment. But let us assume that Ashkenazi indeed wants another year – so what? By the time Ashkenazi was legally able to serve as defense minister, Barak would already be 71. (…)

(JIWON: I finally found out. My years-long Knesset life tells me that there was someone around DM Barak, whenever his ability was praised by everyone, even professional journalists such as Yoel Marcus. However, my opinion is even different from Yoel Marcus. In my view, Israel is full of “wunderschoenen” defense ministers, if it can never produce qualified prime minister or president. The same goes for the IDF Chief of Staff. I don’t think Ashkenazi is the only one qualified, who, unlike DM Barak or PM Bibi, didn’t want to step over everyone but just wanted to fulfill his responsibility as a member of Israeli society.)

Security and Defense: ‘This is peaceful, but fragile’ Feb 12, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
(…) Ashkenazi’s return to the IDF in 2007, many officers noted this week, could not have come at a better time. The country and particularly the IDF were still reeling from the failures in the Second Lebanon War, and Ashkenazi helped restore the IDF’s strength and deterrence. His main message has not changed in his three years on the job. “We are told very clearly by Ashkenazi that as a military we are either at war or preparing for war,” explained one top officer. “That is what we do.” Training has been the name of the game for most of Ashkenazi’s tenure, but so has force development. (…) From Ashkenazi’s point of view, the IDF will never be able to outnumber its enemies in soldiers or tanks. But his thinking goes, while Israel doesn’t have more soldiers than Syria, it will have better trained ones; while it doesn’t have more tanks than Egypt, it will have more advanced ones; and while it might have the same F-15s as Saudi Arabia and F-16s as Egypt, its will be equipped with smart bombs, specially-designed armaments and advanced electronic warfare systems. This is otherwise known as the qualitative edge, which goes hand-in-hand with more training to prepare soldiers for close combat inside urban centers in the Gaza Strip and southern Lebanon. (…)

(JIWON: Now, I start getting what I wanted to get. I always wanted to say, especially to the corrupt Palestinian Society; “This is what Palestinian public needs… Palestinian Society will never be able to outnumber its enemies in bla-bla-bla, so it needs more of qualified strategies to train its public mind…”

To my surprise, The Edward Said National Conservatory of Music or Palestinian National Music School was already doing what was my most favorite. I just wanted to join them.

Please ask the Widow of Prof. Edward Said about how much she wanted to get rid of this kind of thinking from her Palestinians… in the name of Music. I am still curious. Who are Beinisch’ sh*ts among the Labor members, who made a deal with Mrs. Mariam Said? Is DM Barak the one?)

IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi Feb 8, 2007 / By Ynetnews
(…) In May 2000, during his term as head of the Northern Command, former Prime Minister Ehud Barak pulled the army from southern Lebanon, a move Ashkenazi strongly opposed. Soon after the withdrawal three soldiers were kidnapped by Hizbullah terrorists in a cross-border raid near Har Dov. (…)

Security and Defense: ‘This is peaceful, but fragile’ Feb 12, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
(…) The tension between Barak and Ashkenazi also has its roots in earlier disagreements about appointments in the General Staff (…) Other appointments will need to be made in the coming year. (…)

(JIWON: They did have a story… Very interesting. Since Labor’s Barak has been in his office not to defend Israel or Labor’s ideology but only to step over everybody and become Israeli Prime Minister, we’ll see how much Labor’s Barak will destroy his Israel more during his political battle with his (superior) rival, Ashkenazi, and during his cooperation with PM Bibi or FM Lieberman.)

5. The lunatics are running the asylum!: Many agree with the words of Lieberman even though they were not veiled in the usual diplomatic jargon so prevalent today in the “appeasing” US and EU. One thing is not quite clear though and that is who is the Prime Minister? Barak is obviously feathering his own nest in his usual Napoleonic way to be the next Prime Minister of Israel. He seems to forget that he need to have a party behind him to do this and he has all but totally destroyed Labor! As for Lieberman, perhaps this is his swan song before going to jail. He too forgets that he has betrayed his voter base with broken promises. Most Israelis felt that the worst Government that his country has ever had was the Netanyahu Government of 1996.

High Court Activism Angers MKs Feb 11, 2010 / By Aruz Sheva (Settlers’ Voice)
Talkbacks for this article ?
1. Jurispridence 101: In a nation state the various organs of government have different job descriptions. In matters of law it is up to the government to make laws. It is up to the judiciary to interpret laws. It is up to the police, sheriffs and prisons to enforce the law. When a law is not written up correctly interpretation becomes difficult. The key in this case is to define the parameters of the possible detention of a suspect. Words are concept handles. Bad lawmaking leads to grey areas of interpretation and enforcement. Good minds should be able to resolve this problem. There are the requisite wise men and women in Israel at the moment isn’t there? / Adam Neira, Melb, Australia (02/11/10)
4. mikdi: if this is a case of the court rejecting a new law of the knesset because it contradicts one or more other laws of the knesset, then the court is right and should inform the knesset as to what the conflicts are so that they can amend the proposed, or other, laws as necessary. if this not such a case but rather a case of the knesset [court?Ed] simply acting as if they have a right to overrule the knesset for any other reason, then the court should be summarily dismissed and its members prohibited form ever practicing law again in israel. / sean, jerusalem (02/11/10)
5. They are right for once!: As suprised as I am to say it, the court is completely right for once. David Rotem’s argument here ridiculous, it doesn’t matter how many times it’s used and who it’s used for — the fact is that it erodes our civil rights and turns Israel into more of a police state. Don’t think the same laws wouldn’t be used against Jews as well, look at the way these reshaim [bad guys.Ed] deal with the Federmans or in Amona etc etc. What we need more than anything else is a constitution which defines the limits of power for each governmental branch — i.e. the court can nullify laws on certain grounds, but the knesset can push through laws with a greater majority the next time, or maybe that the knesset has the power to remove judges. / Eliyahu, Jerusalem (02/11/10)
6. Supreme court: The supreme court in Israel is overstepping it’s boundaries & legislating from the bench. Laws must be passed to limit their power. The judges are out of touch with reality. / Wise Saba, Netivot (02/11/10)
8. MK Ben-Ari on both accounts: It is a bad law. And the Supreme Court is totally out of control. / Gee, Zikron Yaakov (02/12/10)
10. Supreme court: Who Governs Israel – The Knesset or the Supreme Court? What a danger to the Country. / Joan, New Zealand (02/12/10)
13. Separation of powers: I also do not agree with a lot of the decisions of the supreme court, but deciding the legality of laws passed by the Knesset is against the role of the Judicial branch of Government!!! / Paul Schnall, Mitzpeh Netofa (02/12/10)

(JIWON: At the first glance, this case looks as if the Israeli Supreme Court Boss is a President of International Court of Justice, especially when Beinisch is enjoying her foreign travel as Israeli Queen. Unless International readers daily visit the Israeli media, they will never realize this is nothing but a thick layer of make-up.

In my life-long public life, Mofaz-Law is one of the stupidest, disgusting, and fundamentally-corrupt law passed by the Pigs’ Parliament. But did I hear something from Supreme Court President Beinisch? As far as I know, the timing or procedure itself was problematic, but I’ve only watched this very female, whether Ahron Barak’s bimbo or PM Bibi’s Barbie-doll, keep silent while it was quickly(?) passed by You-Know-Whom. I promise. Mofaz-Law will eventually lead Israel into the Self-Destruction. Now that Kadima No.2 Mofaz will anyway join Beinisch’s Likud as Nothing, this name will be remembered whenever Israel suffers from corrupt politics. Good for him.

And the same Barak, who is afraid of IDF Chief of Staff Ashkenazy, is not afraid of Kadima’s Mofaz, who likes to be dubbed “Mr. Security”, even if he joins Bibi’s Likud under a certain title… (although it has No-Meaning, aka Justice Minister…) What does it mean?)

3. don’t do it unless the price is high & keep mofaz waiting: If any deals are going to be done with Mofaz he must bring a substantial number of MKS with him. othewise Bibi will be helping Kadima. The longer this rift between Mofaz & Livni lasts the most the Kadima tears itself apart. As soon as Mofaz leaves Livni can bring about stability under her unquestioned leadership so keep him waiting to create maximum damage. Bibi needs to keep dangling Mofaz by the hook as long as possible and make sure Mofaz understands a senior cabinet posting means alot of defections. / zionist forever (02.14.10)

Rosner’s Domain: Netanyahu’s rocky second year Feb 12, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
Talkbacks for this article 22
1. Well, Rosner, I read the full article & for once I agree with you.: Netanyahu has a stable coalition & Likud has wide support. And, a year has gone by & dealing with serious issues has been postponed. I can’t say if any other political leader would have done any better, it’s not likely & far more likely, would have done far worse. That said, you are correct – the sh*t is about to hit the fan. In a relatively short time, Netanyahu will be obliged to make a decision re: Iran. If Netanyahu does not initiate a military strike against Iran, then you can be sure Iran will do the initiating. / Terry – Eilat, Israel, Friday Feb 12, 2010
5. I think he has achieved one goal. staying in office.: He did it by pretty much keeping his mouth shut. / Neshri Jerusalem, Friday Feb 12, 2010
11. “BB” is best for the challenges ahead,: which could find Israel facing them alone. If Israel does make decisions that slow the US economic recovery, such as Israel dealing with that Iranian nabal, Israel may find the US more ambivalent than a supporter. / DrU (Texas), Saturday Feb 13, 2010
13. #6 Sally. It concerns you how out of touch Obama is: It would be more productive if you asked yourself how out of touch Israel is with the real world who are disgusted with Israel’s persistence to circumvent the real issue of Jews squatting on Arab land. As to demonisation of Israel, Israel is doing it to itself, all by itself. Stop the settlements so Netanyahu can avoid a “rocky second year” / Donna O’Brien, Saturday Feb 13, 2010

Emmanuel Rosen: Who’s scared of Lieberman? Feb 17, 2010 / By Ynetnews
The real danger is that people may think Lieberman speaks on behalf of Bibi (…) Lieberman is not the issue; he is the excuse. Lieberman is basically an educated and thinking man. (…) The problem is that Netanyahu (…) There are two options here: Either Netanyahu in fact endorses Lieberman’s words and the foreign minister is the person who executes the PM’s policy, or else, Bibi is simply scared; scared of Sara and scared of Avigdor. The prime minister may be a great hero when it comes to the Iranian threat, but he is a little coward when it comes to domestic threats. In any case, the codename here is fear. (…) And if this is the case, the time has come for him to stand up to Lieberman and issue a last warning before dismissing him. Yet if, heaven forbid, the prime minister thinks that Lieberman is right and fit for the job, I prefer our foreign minister then. He will at least lead us to oblivion with a little smile and plenty of humor.

(JIWON: I agree with this author. FM Lieberman is different from Phoenix-Bibi. No one would believe my opinion. But in my view, this Russian Jew thinks before he talks, while Phoenix-Bibi talks first and talks only. Why do you think Lieberman is preparing to quit government?)

Carlo Strenger: Lieberman, ethnicity and Israeli politics: an open letter to Yossi Sarid Jan 14, 2010 / By Haaretz
In an op-ed about Avigdor Lieberman you have tacked one of the most sensitive questions in Israeli society and Israeli politics: ethnic tensions and their impact on our lives and politics. (…) Jews and Arabs (…) Ashkenazim and Mizrahim (…) and the question of the impact of the third largest group in Israel: immigrants from the former Soviet Union. In your piece, you chose to tackle the latter question, but you don’t speak the words – and that is dishonest. You don’t say something along the lines of “Lieberman is Russian, and hence he has totalitarian leanings.” Instead you write, “He came from a large country and saw a country that was too small.” These sectarian tensions are the unspoken secret of Israeli politics. (…) My sympathies for Lieberman are zero. Like many others, I think that this skillful tactician is a danger for Israeli democracy. But we can’t blame him for a political system that sucks. Lieberman didn’t invent the system, he just makes skilful use of it. (…)

(…) Prime Minister Netanyahu decided that it would be sufficient to reprimand the Turkish ambassador to Israel. Lieberman and his deputy, Danny Ayalon, decided to maximize the blow: The ambassador was invited to the deputy minister’s office in the Knesset, and with him came the cameras of Channels 2 and 10. Ayalon explained to the cameras what the director wanted to show: The ambassador, smiling uncomfortably, was seated in a low sofa, and facing him, in higher chairs, were three somber Israelis and “only a single flag.” This is how Lieberman’s instructions are carried out on how to protect national honor.

(…) “The 2002 Arab Peace Initiative is vital to our efforts to promote a comprehensive peace,” she added (…) Washington and its allies have long urged Israel to comply with a commitment under the 2003, U.S.-brokered “road map” peace plan to halt the expansion of all settlements. Peace Now said that it had evidence building has continued – sometimes under cover of darkness – since Netanyahu’s declared freeze in 34 settlements, a quarter of the total. (…)

(JIWON: Now, what about this? I used to think that Deputy FM Ayalon is an illiterate Russian Jew from the ghetto… until last night. (How many among the Russian Jews can follow the Hebrew or English media? I’m still curious.) A Jew, who was born in Tel Aviv and educated in America, joined this Russian or Totalitarian Jewish party after serving Israeli Ambassador to US. What does it mean? Well, it was also quite recently that I realized that the settlers are relatively richer.)

Netanyahu: ‘Peace with Syria – without preconditions’ Feb 4, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
Only precondition for peace is that Netanyahu be a statesman Nov 15, 2009 / By Haaretz
Another innovation has been added to the list of sophisticated negotiation-stalling tactics. It is known by the business term “without preconditions.” PM Bibi’s latest message is that he is ready to conduct negotiations with Syria without preconditions, and the same applies to Palestine. Sounds good. Finally there is a breakthrough. But wait a minute. Without preconditions on whose part, Israel’s or Syria’s? Netanyahu’s or Abbas’? (…)

Moshe Arens: Words, words, words Feb 8, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) One can only conclude that the avalanche of words by the leaders of Israel and Syria this past week was really intended for the Israeli public. The defense minister is using scare tactics (…) Moallem echoes Barak’s words by threatening the destruction of Israel’s cities if a war were to occur. And Lieberman is saying – and it’s most probably true - that if Syria were to go to war against Israel, under the impact of Israeli blows, Assad’s Alawite ruling regime would probably not survive such a war. That is what deterrence is all about, so Israelis need not worry, Lieberman tells us, despite the defense minister’s pronouncements. (…) This Syrian deterrent has been effective enough to keep Israel from calling Syria to account for its support for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza. So far.

Editorial: Thank God, the war is starting Jan 25, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) The prime minister should NOT realize the diplomatic price Israel is paying for his attempts to placate the right, should NOT stop provocations like the “planting of the university center in Ariel” of which he so proudly spoke yesterday, and should NOT place rehabilitating relations with Jordan at a higher priority level. His bureau’s comment – that Netanyahu would be happy to meet with the Jordanian King “whenever the need arises” – does NOT show dangerous indifference in light of the erosion of Israel’s status in the region, and gratuitous arrogance toward a country whose friendship is NOT essential.

Isn’t the perfect time for this genius Russian or Totalitarian Jew, Avigdor Lieberman, to walk away from the government and prepare the next election? Kadima will finally collapse and the rest of them will only waste times… at least for two years. And it’s better to expand the settlements from the opposition bench, isn’t it? Who knows? Likud voters might switch to “Yisrael Beiteinu” and finally make “Israel Their Home”.)

Aluf Benn or Yoel Marcus or Whoever: Renewing Israeli-Palestinian talks is obvious way to end impasse From Time To Time Since Mar 31, 2009 / By Haaretz
(…) After PM Bibi announced a 10-month freeze on construction in the settlements, and accelerated Jewish building and settlement in East Jerusalem – which has infuriated the Palestinians and the Americans – his associates say he had no choice. Netanyahu remembers how the right forced him out of the government during his first term as prime minister after signing the Wye River Accord with Yasser Arafat. He needs to strengthen his coalition. (…)

(JIWON: He had no choice? How come? How was he able to form his coalition? Phoenix-Bibi didn’t do it alone. It was at the request of Lieberman and the ENTIRE religious parties. I don’t understand why people keep comparing PM Bibi’s old days with his present situation, in which the left has disappeared. First of all, whom have the Israeli citizens voted for? Netanyahu or Leader of Likud?)

Poll: Yisrael-Beiteinu is maintaining its stability as $has does Feb 8, 2010 / By Ynetnews
(…) the most popular political personality is EM Sa’ar – despite the lack of public satisfaction with the education system as a whole. (…) The surprising results of the survey show that the Israeli electorate seems to be looking ahead, to the next generation of leaders. It is quietly seeking an alternative, someone to replace the veteran guard one day. As a result, the big winner is EM Sa’ar. The Tel Avivian minister, who combines Likud values, political moderation and lightheartedness, who charms the next generation, was voted the most successful minister in the Netanyahu government. (…) FM Lieberman, despite his controversial political statements, received the support of 9% of the respondents (…)

Barak under fire for granting university status to West Bank college Jan 20, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Former education minister Prof. Yuli Tamir was also up in arms, saying the CHE (Council for Higher Education) should have been given the final word, and its opposition was well-known. Moreover, she charged, the upgrade will allow Ariel to take funding away from existing universities. (…) Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar, who chairs the CHE, said he “hoped and expected” that Ariel would receive full university status in the next few years. Other CHE members, however, were less enthusiastic – adding that the council had been promised no such thing would happen without it being consulted.

(…) Ashur says the cooperation with Ariel University Center helps to expand the settlement, which is one of his goals. (…)

Survey refutes Sa’ar’s recipe for calmer schools Jan 26, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) This conclusion contradicts Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar’s policy of trying to improve school discipline by introducing such practices. These practices have “declarative value only, and are liable to come at the expense of the truly educational act – a good, caring relationship between teacher and student,” wrote the author (…) In recent months, the Education Ministry has spent about NIS 10 million, and put in thousands of training hours, to instruct teachers and principals about the new rules. But Yariv calls this investment of time and money “misdirected.” (…) “An aggressive, bureaucratic approach to disciplinary issues will achieve the opposite of what is intended,” Yariv concluded. (…)

(JIWON: I didn’t know that Likud No.2 was politically moderate. I knew this guy was a typical populist, but I didn’t know that this was a “lighthearted” brain, which prefers “aggressive, bureaucratic approach”. I don’t think I collected wrong information, since this is a typical version of Beinisch’s toy. Easy to imagine Likud’s future.)

Nehemia Shtrasler: Hold the execution Feb 17, 2010 / By Haaretz
Attorney Uri Corb is lucky there’s no death penalty in Israel. If there were, the deputy Jerusalem district prosecutor would be swinging at the end of a rope in the town square. This is because Corb has committed a grave, unforgivable crime: insulting judges, even Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch. And in Israel, we can hurl vitriol at the prime minister and invective at Knesset members; we can even dishonor the president. But judges? Perish the thought. They cannot be criticized, and if anyone has the audacity to do so, he must be dismissed, eliminated, beheaded – so that everyone will behold and be scared. Criticism of judges and the judicial system is permitted only when it is “sincere and courteous.” If it is not, a person could be accused of committing the criminal offense known as “disrespecting the court.” Why is there is no such law to protect the prime minister or the president? Is their dignity less important? Is their blood less red?
(…) After all, when Corb was caught red-handed, he hastened to apologize in the fullest possible manner, saying it pained him that his words had wronged the judicial system. He apologized for offending the judges and explained that the published remarks do not reflect his actual feelings. Later, he sent an additional e-mail of apology to every prosecutor in the country. How can he possibly be more humiliated? Judges need to realize that they are not above criticism. (…)

Editorial: Israeli-Future-Leader No.1 and the monkey trial Feb 23, 2010 / By Haaretz
Education Minister Gideon Saar says that fostering scientific excellence among Israeli students is at the top of his priorities … for which he won high praise. (…) Instead of appointing, as his predecessor did, a prominent scholar in the field of education, he chose a Likud activist who ran on the party’s slate in the last Knesset election. … serve the minister as a way to pay off cronies and party hacks. (…) The ministry’s chief scientist dismisses Darwin’s theory … wants to push the education system hundreds of years into the past and undermine science’s achievements in order to impart religious ideologies to Israeli students. (…)

(JIWON: This is called the Education Minister, who is dubbed the Israeli Future Leader No.1, regardless of his questionable ability. But then, is it this politician’s fault to be chosen as the Israeli Future Leader No.1? It was the most favorite choice of the Israeli voters. Easier to imagine the Israeli future.)

(…) Two reasons for this leap to mind. One is the “Sara effect.” (…) But the main reason for the drop in his popularity is his decision to freeze construction in the settlements – something no right-wing prime minister before him ever dared to do. The dry facts tell the whole story: Netanyahu is losing support among right-wing voters (though not in the Likud). At the same time, he is gaining popularity among the center and the left. The voters on the right side of the political spectrum are disappointed with him. They still backed him after he declared his support for the two-state solution, but once he took a concrete step they started to turn a cold shoulder.
(…) Fully 89% of Kadima voters prefer Livni over Mofaz. … Mofaz will make it a pale copy of Likud. … from Kadima to Labor … The reason: internal wrangling in Kadima and Yair Lapid.
(…) But the whole center-left camp has 48 seats, unchanged from the poll three months ago, whereas the right-wing bloc has 72 seats – also unchanged. In the current Knesset, the center-left bloc has 55 seats, as compared to 65 for the right. In short, a year after the elections, the right-wing bloc still remains dominant. (…)

Min. Meridor tells all Feb 14, 2010 / By Canada Free Press, Ted Belman (a retired lawyer in Jerusalem)
I attended a large gathering tonight to hear what Min Dan Meridor had to say. He may not have told all but he told enough for me. He answered my first question without the need for me to ask it.
[Q]Why is Bibi begging for negotiations if he doesn’t intend to make concessions?
[Meridor] – Negotiations are intended to be on two tracks, top down and the other, bottom up. Israel has no expectations that the first will succeed but they expect to build on the work done already in building the Palestinian economy and lifting restrictions and security cooperation.
[Q] – What’s to happen with the freeze agreement that Israel negotiated with the US at the end of the 10 months? Can we build with a vengeance or are we constrained by agreement?
[Meridor]First of all there was no agreement. (This took me by surprise. Either there are mutual covenants or consideration of there are not. If not, we are not bound.) As to what happens after, we will have to decide whether to amend the freeze or cancel it. Thus it would appear that where we build becomes a matter of negotiations. If the PA want’s the freeze to continue or demands a better one, what will Israel do. If Israel insists on cancelling the freeze then the PA will have to demand a lesser freeze. Meanwhile, Israel wants to continue building from the bottom up. I think Obama agrees with that and will be happy to see it continue. Remember Obama agreed that there would be no preconditions to the talks.

(JIWON: Please ask Mr. Never-Talented-in-Big-Mouth, whose moderate leadership would NEVER have a chance of success, as he already confessed, even if he was finally able to steal the ENTIRE Kadima MKs and kick Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu out of his coalition. Which party’s voters are actually living in the settlement area? Kadima voters or Likud voters or Yisrael Beiteinu voters? Please ask this moderate Likud leader who will actually move out of the settlement area if his moderate coalition is finally able to reach the “Final Status Arrangement” with EVERYBODY’s Palestinian partners. His Kadima voters or His Likud voters or Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu voters?)

Or is it you like to watch some action in your comfort zones? Such hypocrites! / Wildmandxb, M.E. (02/18/10)

(JIWON: Well, I didn’t plan to call Likudnik Benny Begin “Such a Hypocrite”. I just wonder why this “Honest and Strict” politician still didn’t resign despite PM Bibi’s announcement of Two-State-Solution, PM Bibi’s brave vision about Peace with Syria, and so on and so on…

Perhaps, he is now too old to “lead hardliners out of the Likud with the hope of reviving the Herut political party founded by his father”. Perhaps, he now has NEITHER courage NOR Shamir-like supporter to “make Herut – The National Movement depart from the Likud and join other right-wing parties to form an alliance opposing the Two-State-Solution”, regardless of his favorite National Union’s poor outcome during the next election.

Well, this is none of my business. Rather, I want to see this comical happening. I am just curious. Who is whose what, and WHY? Is Dorit Beinisch Benny Begin’s Barbie-doll? If so, WHY? Is Benny Begin Dorit Beinisch’s Puppy? If so, WHY? I just can’t understand why a real Hawk like Benny Begin suddenly emerged from nowhere in support of hypocritical Branja Beinisch.

The Arrogance of Israel’s Elite: Tyranny of the Judiciary and the Media December 1999 / By Yonason Rosenblum
(…) Five Centers of Power: Israeli society can be described in terms of five centers of power: the Knesset, the economy, the judicial system, the media, and the army. Until 1977, each of these five was dominated by the left-wing parties. (…) With the election of Menachem Begin as Prime Minister in 1977, however, that scenario changed radically. (…) Indeed, as the other sectors of Israeli society have opened up, the media and legal establishment have become ever more homogenous and have succeeded in concentrating ever greater power in their hands. It is not coincidental that the gradual ascendancy of the Israeli Supreme Court coincides with Menachem Begin’s election as Prime Minister. Ruth Gavison, Professor of Law at the Hebrew University and current president of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, described in a November 12 interview in Ha’Aretz’s Weekend Magazine how the Israeli judicial system “serves as the last refuge for elements of the old elites who feel the only institution that is still under their control and represents their values is the Court.” As a consequence, those old elites “have a natural tendency to aggrandize the power of the Court, and in fact to use it in order to curb or restrain the process of democratization [of Israeli society].” The interview sent shock waves through the Israeli legal world.
(…) In April 1996, for instance, Prime Minister Shimon Peres reported that the Palestinian National Council had revoked the PLO Covenant calling for the destruction of Israel. Likud’s Benny Begin insisted that nothing of the kind had occurred and that the PM Peres was an active party to a ruse. The press either ignored or ridiculed Begin. Two years later, however, Joel Singer, the Israeli legal advisor on the Oslo Accords, revealed that Peres and Arafat had knowingly misled the Israeli public. The media showed a similar lack of interest in Arafat’s Arabic speeches, after the signing of the Oslo Accords, calling for jihad against Israel. Only because Shimon Peres accused Benny Begin of using doctored clips of those speeches did their existence become widely known. (…)

Alulf Benn: Why didn’t the former AG Mazuz investigate? Feb 21, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Israel has a law enforcement system to answer such questions; its head is the attorney general, and its arms are the police and other investigative agencies. But not in the case of Elon. For him, a special track was used: investigation by a secret, volunteer forum with no legal authority, called Takana, which in October 2006 reported the suspicions against Elon to the previous attorney general, Menachem Mazuz. And what did Mazuz do? (…) The behavior of Mazuz and Danino raises many questions, because both are known for their lack of sympathy toward suspected sex offenders. A few weeks before they received the information about Elon, they mobilized with full force to extract a complaint from a female soldier, H., against then-minister Haim Ramon, who was ultimately indicted for forcibly kissing her. As the verdict noted, Danino and his colleagues “saw great public interest in conducting an investigation and obtaining a complaint from the complainant.” And Mazuz pushed the probe with all his might. So it’s strange that these very same people, Mazuz and Danino, saw no public interest in probing the allegations against Elon, a teacher, educator and key figure in the religious Zionist community. (…) I’m not trying to downplay the severity of Ramon’s behavior, or to revive the claim that he was really indicted to stop his planned reforms of the Justice Ministry. I prefer to believe that his investigators, prosecutors and judges acted in good faith. But for that very reason, I find it hard to understand and accept a situation in which the attorney general has two different lanes for suspected sex offenders – a red lane for the minister and a green lane for the rabbi. (…)

(JIWON: What I feel funny about Israeli Supreme Court President is that whenever I mention her younger-but-superior rival, Ruth Gavison, she is quick to recruit her servants-to-be. Please imagine Beinisch’s hysterical face, whenever I call this female jurist, Ruth Gavison, a real Jewish brain. Please enjoy the latest version of $has MK: Homosexual activity cause of earthquake, by the way.)

:-) In Israel, is NO-one really allowed to call Dorit Beinisch ‘ASS’ or ‘POPULIST’? While Beinisch ‘MORALLY’ slams ALL the Talkbackers and while ALL the Jews ‘LEGALLY’ respect Beinisch’s Husband (Mar 2, 2010)

(JIWON: Finally, I had to make another collection… in this tired-out situation. May I write something more? If I had more time, I could have made more collections about this female jurist Dorit Beinisch’s remarkable achievement; “The Twilights of the Jews”.

It was not long ago that PM Bibi’s most faithful servant minister fed up with too much trashes, which Phoenix-Bibi had left to him. What did he have to do? He pinpointed specific rulings of the Supreme Court President. What has he got in return? His boss sided with Beinisch, who therefore received his public apology, no matter how much her nickname affects her future legal ruling. Didn’t he call Aharon Barak’s bimbo “The Populist”? As a result, this was the only path left for PM Bibi’s slave: Nehemia Shtrasler: The fat man will get fatter and the thin man will collapse (Feb 26, 2010)

Of course, PM Netanyahu is the best one to see through this FACT, and therefore, he wants to put this ragged hat on “Mysterious IQ of Kadima’s No.2”. He knows that any Kadima sh*ts will be thrilled to pieces after accepting this title, even if it is Beinisch’s Finance Minister. Of course, he knows that a couple of years will be enough for his dumb voters to believe that it was not Phoenix-Bibi’s Likud or Barak’s Labor’s Coalition-Deal but Livni’s Kadima’s Mofaz-Law that bankrupted the Israeli budget.

Thanks to this computer work, Kadima’s No.2 keeps changing his future job in case he joins Bibi’s Likud as a Peace-Lover, who can make Bibi’s coalition ‘MODERATE’ enough to finally declare East Jerusalem as a Palestinian capital: From Beinisch’s Justice Minister to Beinisch’s Finance Minister. Which portfolio will he be given after this report? And I am done with Mofaz’s mysterious IQ.

I knew that this was a sensitive human being, whose MICRO-analytical attitude frequently let him get lost. This is why I wanted him to read the Public-Mind as quickly as possible and to give up what he can’t make inside HIS Kadima if he can’t make the same wish come true inside HIS Likud. Doesn’t the Right-Timing for Kadima No.2 also mean ‘Leading the Public-Mind’? This is why I kept sending threatening messages to Livni (… through the back door…) to develop more capacity for tolerance, even if this is Mofaz-Law and its power-thirsty followers, and finally grow into a HEROIC-FEMALE LEADER.

Now, I am done with all those Kadima sh*ts. When are they going to join Beinisch’s ‘MODERATE-or-HYPOCRITE’ Likud? I never understand why those sh*ts keep checking this computer work, instead of following in the footsteps of President Peres or DM Barak and checking the Israeli POLL and putting this theory into practice: Peres: ‘Israelis must rediscover Jewish values’

Basically, Phoenix-Bibi’s Finance Minister was not the first Israeli, who criticized “Populist” Supreme Court President. It was while Beinisch behaved like a typical female and her nickname had nothing to do with Finance Ministry or Israel’s budget. Nor this criticism was from the right-wing or religious circle. But I was too tired to follow them, anyway. When Phoenix-Bibi’s most faithful servant spat on “The Populist Beinisch”, I didn’t want to be involved in this comical battle, and EVERYBODY knows why. Now, I care nothing. Why doesn’t EVERYBODY contribute his hard working to make this nickname, “The Populist Beinisch” a special brand of Israeli Supreme Court President?)

Akiva Eldar: Supreme Court abetting, not curbing, illegal settlements Mar 2, 2010 / By Haaretz
Next week will be five years since the publication of the report on the outposts by former top prosecutor attorney Talia Sasson at the request of prime minister Ariel Sharon. That report was released in the wake of the government’s decision to adopt the road map for peace, according to which it undertook to “immediately dismantle” all the illegal outposts established after March of 2001. (…) Under the cover of the partial and temporary freeze, the outposts are putting down deeper roots. Some of them, such as Givat Habreikha, are operating right under the Supreme Court’s nose. (…) Supreme Court Justice Neal Hendel contented himself with passing the case along to a bench of three justices. This was enough for the settlers. (…)

(JIWON: Please ask Dorit Beinisch what means “right under the Supreme Court’s nose”. Please ask Supreme Court President whom she rejected during THAT-SCANDAL about who should represent the Supreme Court in this case. Didn’t it start with the Likud’s Sa’ar Bill? Or was it Prof. Friedmann, too, who caused all the situation?)

(… Beinisch’s Gideon Sa’ar as Likud’s Chief or even Israeli Future Leader No.1 after Phoenix-Bibi’s fall…)

Now, isn’t it a perfect time for Phoenix-Bibi to be elected as the Likud’s REAL-chief and Israeli Prime Minister… again? Who else could do this job? Who says that PM Netanyahu achieved nothing during his second term?)

(…) Netanyahu established the “forum of seven” for diplomatic and security consultations, so that the senior ministers would be seen as involved and influential. He appointed unsuitable people to high offices – Yuval Steinitz to the Finance Ministry and Avigdor Lieberman to the Foreign Ministry – so that he could ignore them and handle the economy and foreign policy by himself. At the systemic level, the prime minister learned from the mistakes of his previous term, and avoided friction with either the army or the legal system. When the settlers rebelled against the freezing of settlement construction, he compensated them with money and affection. (…)

Interview with MK Eldad (National Union): ‘Likud Would Split if Netanyahu Tried to Establish a Palestinian State’ Feb 23, 2010 / By Algemeiner.com
[Q] – Bla-bla-bla
[NU MK] – Netanyahu is a weak leader. He still knows that a Palestinian state is a threat to the very existence of Israel, but he is too weak to stand up to the pressures from the White House. (…) Netanyahu is at his best when he’s in the opposition. He’s a very strong opposition leader. He speaks wonderfully. Then he can explain why we should never freeze the building, why we should always be allowed to live everywhere in the land of Israel, why we should never be ready to withdraw from the Golan or from Judea and Samaria.
[Q] – The very positions that he contradicts now?
[NU MK] – He’s a very beautiful opposition leader; he’s a very weak Prime Minister. He cannot stand to his own ideology or to his own position. That’s why Netanyahu as a leader of the opposition is much better for Israel than Netanyahu as a Prime Minister. When he is the Prime Minister there is hardly any national opposition to such dangerous steps like acceptance of the Road Map or the dictates of it.
[Q] – What is your message to American Jewry?
[NU MK] – (…) there already is a Palestinian state, and this is Jordan. (…)
[Q] – Do you believe this will happen?
[NU MK] – I believe that if this will not happen I don’t know how long Israel will exist. I believe that if Israel will be forced to accept a Palestinian state our days are numbered.

(JIWON: OR… was it in fact the greatest achievement of Opposition leader Livni? I didn’t know that. No matter what, isn’t it a perfect time for the Likud’s REAL-chief to summon his original supporters, who gave Phoenix-Bibi a job of Israeli Prime Minister?)

Bennet wants to use settlers to boost Israel’s PR Feb 2, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post
Naftali Bennett, the new director-general of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip, learned about how to improve Israel’s image from PM BiBi when he served as his chief of staff from 2006-2008 while the Likud leader headed the opposition. (…) Bennett will replace Pinhas Wallerstein, who resigned from the post a few weeks ago. (…) “He knows the language of Tel Aviv. Improving the image of Judea and Samaria in their eyes has to be one of the council’s main targets. It’s the people who live throughout Israel who will make decisions regarding the future fate of Judea and Samaria,” said the Gush Etzion Regional Council head.

Address by PM Netanyahu at Bar-Ilan: Likud to Accept Two-State Solution, PA State Jun 14, 2009 / By Israel

Concern spurred by Post report on AIPAC lobbying for Palestinian state with PMO’s blessing. (…) TWO-THIRDS of the Likud faction would defy a potential effort by Netanyahu to withdraw from parts of Judea and Samaria. (…) This time around, no fewer than seven Likud ministers vocally oppose a Palestinian state: Gideon Sa’ar, Bennie Begin, Moshe Ya’alon, Yuli Edelstein, Gilad Erdan, Yisrael Katz and Moshe Kahlon. (…) “There is no reason to hurry,” Begin said. “We are waiting until the meeting with the president of the United States in which I am sure the prime minister will present the views of the government and the Likud.” (…) “It is clear that many in Likud were elected due to certain ideas, and the Likud was chosen to lead the country,” a Likud minister said

Likudniks to debate Netanyahu’s proposal to delay committee elections by 2 years Mar 3, 2010 / By Jerusalem Post

An anti-Netanyahu show by the hawks in the central committee could serve Netanyahu’s interests, because it could show the leadership in Washington that he is under political pressure.

Whatever… it was quite recently that I finally realized why Israeli public hardly expect 72-yr-old “FUAD” to sit on the throne while they don’t mind watching 86-yr-old Peres destroy EVERYTHING as Phoenix-Bibi’s President: Poor Shalom. Poor Mofaz. Poor “FUAD”… Doesn’t PM Netanyahu look like a pure Ashkenazi or utmost Tel-Avian no matter what he does behind the scene?)

Yoel Marcus: There is no one in charge, no clear policy on the Palestinian issue Feb 9, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) It’s no longer “two states for two peoples.” Now ministers are scaring the public by saying the Palestinians want one state west of the Jordan, and hope to win by demography. The government is gradually exposing its right-wing character. (…) If Netanyahu wants peace (…) Kadima leader Tzipi Livni may be miffed, but this is no time for settling accounts – it’s a time for closing ranks. With Livni as vice premier and foreign minister and Mofaz as public security minister, it would not be a paralysis government but one that could march us to peace and security. Come on Bibi, forward march.

Carlo Strenger: Israel’s liberals are suffering political paralysis Feb 17, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) Hence the paradox of Israel’s current state of mind: two-thirds of the electorate consistently supports the two-state solution, but the vote goes ever more to the right. (…) and the left-leaning Meretz has become a defunct fig-leaf without any relevance. (…) And while I tend to think that Netanyahu has made a strategic choice for the two-state solution, there is no way he can implement it with his current coalition. The only short-term scenario that could initiate some change would be for Netanyahu to sever his ties with Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu party and to form a government together with Kadima based on an unequivocal acceptance of the two-state solution and immediate dismantling of isolated settlements. (…)

The history of modern intelligence is filled with accounts of women who have used their sex for the good of their country… It is not just sleeping with someone if required.

(JIWON: Isn’t that interesting to compare Mr. and Mrs. Netanyahu, who are the FATHER and the MOTHER of the State of Israel? Now, this has been a series of happenings while PM Netanyahu, the FATHER of Israel, was ruling the country with Kadima’s Livni sleeping in the opposition bench. While I never appreciated Livni’s ability, it was rather PM Bibi’s natural ally, National Union MK, who praised Livni’s greatest achievement as the Opposition leader.)

Yoel Marcus: No return to the land of our forefathers Feb 8, 2010 / By Haaretz
PM Bibi cannot pretend he didn’t know whom he was appointing FM Lieberman and what could be expected from him. Netanyahu is pretending to be a better, more moderate leader who seems ready to lead Israel to peace. So it was convenient – or more accurately, important – that he have Yisrael Beiteinu in the coalition. He also needed Shas, which plays alternately the peace seeker and the radical, depending which pays more. Netanyahu needed these two parties to counter the demands of concessions for peace. (…) at the Bar-Ilan speech about two states for two peoples … Netanyahu said. In other words, a return to the Greater Land of Israel dream, which Sharon wanted to scrap. (…)

Now he is suggesting a “train for every voter.” Because if POPULISM is the game, why not go all the way?

Zafrir Rinat: Dozing on our balconies Mar 3, 2010 / By Haaretz
After the bill was pushed through quickly and almost clandestinely, it reached the phase for objections and comments, which is open to the public. That phase ends today. Although the law is huge (almost 600 clauses), with a heavy impact, only 21 days were allotted to the objections phase. This shows that the government really isn’t interested in allowing deep criticism, but wants the Knesset to quickly vote the bill into law. A study of the bill reveals that it’s a new BUREAUCRATIC tangle, adding more than 20 new committees with broad powers to approve construction plans. It increases the role of government, while limiting the ability of the public and organizations representing the public to object to, or influence the planning process. It also decreases transparency. (…)

Nehemia Shtrasler: The compass has gone astray Mar 5, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) said half a year ago that “the auditing of wages must remain in the hands of the Finance Ministry without any exceptions.” So it’s his obligation to correct the wage clause in the Bank of Israel Law so that power once again will be in the hands of the supervisor of wages, without a committee and without Netanyahu. That’s the only way the Bank of Israel will be able to regain the public’s faith.

(JIWON: Finally, I realized that this word, BILLION, means less than a penny for the Israeli King and his voters. I also realized why my frequent reports on the ‘Poverty-Stricken Kids in Israel’ have never bothered Mr. Netanyahu despite Mrs. Sara’s years-long nagging.)

JIWON: (…) As I wrote before … it was a secret message to Beinisch’s Secret Society… that Daniel Barenboim will anyway behave under Mehta’s detailed instruction.

Netanyahu to Haaretz: Palestinians seem to be backing down Feb 22, 2010 / By Haaretz
[Q] – (…) about transportation. You intend to pave roads and build railroad tracks on an unprecedented scale. Why spend money that we don’t have on asphalt and concrete?
[PM Bibi] – “It’s not that much money. (… bla-bla-bla…)”
[Q] – Wouldn’t it be better to invest the money in education? NIS 30 billion could revolutionize elementary, high school and university education.
[PM Bibi] – “We’ll be investing in education, too. (… bla-bla-bla…)”
[Q] – I won’t ask you about Dubai, of course. But I’ll ask you this: Would you say that today you still have the same faith in the Mossad and its chief?
[PM Bibi] – “May I SHUT UP?”

Yoel Marcus: Dubai hit can’t distract from need for Palestinian talks Feb 22, 2010 / By Haaretz
(…) The media is full of fantastic stories about the tremendous success of the most widely reported secret operation ever. Britain’s Sunday papers, known for their revelations, said PM Bibi inspected the Mossad team himself (according to the foreign press, of course) and wished them success. Another newspaper “exposed” that training was carried out in a Tel Aviv hotel. (…)

(JIWON: Therefore, I keep wondering why Palestinian side of leader is replaced by more intelligent & cruel, and younger one, while Israeli side of leader is getting much dumber & more moderate, and older… (in short, a mere populist)… simply to suit Israeli public taste.)

Mossad: the elite women who work for ‘the family’ – Telegraph Feb 20, 2010 / By British Media
Talkbacks for this article 16
3. No one laments the death of this terrible man. But there are 2 problems: is that the tactic of assassination in uncivilized and, you know, illegal. Second, this sort of violence ultimately perpetuates more radicalization and more violence, not less. Do you think Hamas is going to choose a more moderate leader to replace him? Do you think poor Arab kids will now be persuaded that Israelis have a right to their land by this action? / Commipinkoliberal at 06:17 AM

Nehemia Shtrasler: Amateurs who live in the past Feb 18, 2010 (…before British revelation…) / By Haaretz
(…) The big question is whether the prime minister, who is responsible for the Mossad, took into account both the profits and losses involved when he gave the go-ahead for the operation. Because it’s already clear that the damages caused by the operation are greater than its advantages. Mahmoud al-Mabhouh will be replaced by another Hamas leader, perhaps more cruel than he. But 11 people (and perhaps more) from the Mossad’s hit team can no longer work abroad. Moreover, the methods used by the Mossad have also been exposed. (…)

(JIWON: Who knows? It is in fact the Israeli government, who wants to see Hamas give in to Radical groups and therefore has been working to make ‘Hamas-controlled-area’ a real Anarchy. Isn’t it a better strategy to put this Palestinian land under MORAL and LEGAL occupation? Isn’t it easier to persuade the international community after MORALLY and LEGALLY bombing the entire Gaza? More desperate and more violent Palestinian youngsters living in Fatah-controlled-area will soon follow their Gazan brothers.

It was quite recently that I started solving this Israeli or Palestinian riddle through the viewpoint of Phoenix-Bibi. Suddenly, I could interpret Israeli government’s stupid-looking attitude against Hamas in another way.

Anyway, this is what’s been happening inside Israeli Banana Republic. Regardless of whatsoever happenings in the Hamas’ Islam Republic, it’s clear that Israeli side of leader is getting much dumber & more moderate, and older… (in short, a mere populist)… simply to suit Israeli public taste. Who knows? I might be wrong, of course, and any advice to fix my stupid analysis will be welcomed. However, I must say. Those who dare to criticize my open analysis had better contact Mr. Ideology or Head of Netanyahu Clan first.)

(…) Professor Ben-Zion Netanyahu said that his son had told him that he had placed so many conditions on his offer last month of a Palestinian state as to make it unacceptable to the Palestinians. “He told me that they would never meet even one of those conditions,” he said. (…)

PM Netanyahu’s Dad to Celebrate 100th Birthday Mar 8, 2010 / By Arutz Sheva (Settlers’ Voice)
The Netanyahu clan, the Likud elite and leading political figures including President Peres gathered at a closed event in Jerusalem to honor Prof. Ben-Tzion Netanyahu, the Prime Minister’s father, on his 100th birthday. In typical non-sentimental fashion, Prof. Netanyahu used the occasion at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center to deliver a stern, timely message of warning. (…) In one of the evening’s many amusing moments, Prime Minister Netanyahu used his speech to dispel what he said was a false media account of his childhood home as being ruled by ‘Prussian-style’ discipline. (…) Prof. Netanyahu has been vocally critical of his son Binyamin when he deemed that he had veered off the proper Zionist path. (…)

Yoel Marcus: PM Bibi’s first 100 days. With or without Sara… Let him do his job! Jul 14, 2009 / By Haaretz
(…) It is impossible to address the prime minister’s performance without focusing on a matter called Sara, which occupies the media ad nauseum. The classic struggle in Jewish families is usually between the mother-in-law and the bride. In Netanyahu’s family, according to the grapevine, Sara has the last word. She meddles in appointments and even in policy. Rumor has it that in his previous term there was a written agreement between them that he must take her to every event. After the great defeat she vanished from the scene. With his electoral victory Sara returned and is allegedly involved in his appointments. There’s a joke making the rounds about the work distribution in the Netanyahu family – the 100-year-old father is responsible for ideology and the wife for staffing the bureau. And since his spokespeople have a credibility problem, his recently enlisted son has been posted in the Israel Defense Forces Spokesman’s unit. This whole Sara business, why and to whom should it matter? In our macho-land, few politicians’ wives have dominated their husband. (…)

(JIWON: Since PM Bibi made it clear that Mrs. Sara has absolutely NO influence on the Israeli Politics, EVERYBODY should contact Prof. Netanyahu first if he dare wants to make my brainless analysis free from faults. RIGHT?)
