News From Israel Uncensored (Opinion)
Police confiscated automatic weapons in Kfar Ilut after the local Arab clans engaged in street firefights. Despite numerous promises to disarm the fifth column, police turn a blind eye to widespread fun ownership among Israeli Arabs. At the same time, police diligently disarm Jewish pioneers.
In the encouraging sign of normality, Gadhafi and Assad’s forces fell down on protestors in full might. Gadhafi’s army shelled rebel-held Misrata and Assad’s divisions shot protestors freely, both with significant casualties. The autocrats bank on the NATO’s political inability to launch a third war in the Muslim world, besides the two they are losing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Gadhafi and Assad’s actions benefit Israel by discrediting Obama and, incidentally, Iran. In Libya, Iran failed to sustain the insurgents and in Syria, Iranian aid was of no use to Assad until he mustered his own army.
Recognizing that Israel is desperate – and wrongly so, in our opinion – to quell the Palestinian bid for statehood at UN General Assembly, the Fatah government detailed its concessions: it is ready to swap the land, but not populations. Their idea is to leave a reduced Israel with burgeoning Arab population instead of, as Lieberman argues, incorporate Israeli Arab enclaves into the Palestinian statelet. Never mind the inconsistency: if Palestinian Arabs exhibit so much national consciousness that they need a state, why their brethren prefer to leave in Israel?
The idea of having a Palestinian state is thus stupid for Jews to entertain: we gain absolutely nothing from the deal, and cannot even disenfranchise our Arabs of their citizenship as Jordan have done. On other hand, procrastination is no less stupid: the conflict has long become about Israel leaving with honor rather than substance. It does not pay to sustain an international conflict over essentially three small Jewish towns in the West Bank. Israel can only win by expelling Palestinian Arabs to Jordan.
After withdrawing its meager six planes from the NATO operation in Libya, Kuwait pledged $177 million to the Libyan rebels. That places Kuwait in a curious de facto coalition of the United States and Iran, which support anti-Gadhafi forces.
In Bahrain, Kuwaitis joined Saudi Arabia against the US and Iran.
In Yemen, Kuwaitis and Saudis brokered a partial deal acceptable both to Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The US, France, and Britain have increased the intensity of their attacks on Libya and announced that they will not stop the air strikes until Gadhafi relinquishes power. Sixty Libyans were injured in a recent such strike on Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli.
The West’s actions are pure terrorism: attacking another country without declaring war and without allowing it the right of reprisal attacks. It is also a case of illegal collective punishment, a military crime of which Britain and France accused Israel in Gaza: pounding non-combatants to force government concessions.
So far, Syria seems to have avoided the threat of sectarian strife. Alawites joined Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians in opposing Assad’s rule. Syrians have proved themselves relatively secular, and bear no grudge against Assad’s Alawite sect. They appear to realize that his rule benefited himself and perhaps his party, but not the Alawites generally.
The divide lies between the government and the people. Assad’s Sunni troops so far are continuing to obey his orders to attack protesters. This exposes a curiously widespread phenomenon: soldiers ignoring their consciences and carrying out obviously immoral orders. The same soldiers riot when in their civilian capacity, such as in the town-cum-military base of Katana.
Assad’s procrastination cost him dearly. Unlike other analysts, we believe that he lost by keeping the troops headquartered instead of sending them out against the protestors immediately. After the troops had killed their first civilian victims, their loyalty would have been mostly assured, but by now the military units have grown hesitant. Assad’s mistake was allowing his soldiers time to think.
Saudi Arabia has accepted the Yemeni opposition’s demand for president Saleh to step down. In a last-minute attempt to prevent Yemen from falling into anarchy, the Saudis proposed that Saleh be replaced by his vice president. The opposition has agreed, perhaps calculating that it would be easier for them to oust the VP.
When the opposition wins, pro-Iranian groups and Al Qaeda will enjoy unrestricted freedom in Yemen.
After a Fatah policeman fired at Jewish worshipers in Schem, murdering one and wounding four, Israel’s minister of defense rushed to demand that the PA ‘investigate the incident.’ That means that the IDF won’t kill or even arrest the perpetrator, but leave him to the PA. As usual, the Fatah government will place him in a minimum-security jail and quietly release him soon afterward.
The defense minister even concocted an explanation for the murder: the shootings resulted from a lack of security coordination. In his warped logic, Fatah gunmen can legitimately shoot at Israeli cars unless duly informed of their arrival.
Leftist media speak approvingly of the Negev Brigade reservists who refused orders to expel African illegals who had infiltrated the Jewish state. These reservists, mind you, showed compassion to the illegals who had already made life unbearable for Jews in South Tel Aviv.
The attitude contrasts with the typical leftist howling when soldiers refuse to evict Jewish pioneers from their homes.
As for us, we believe that soldiers are entitled to discretion in both cases. The Army is meant to be used for national emergencies, not evictions, be it of Jews or African Muslims.
TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
EVERYONE at "The Biblical Christian Digital Network" takes News seriously. You should to. Serious enough to realize that ALL NEWS and ALL NEWS SERVICES are biased and opionated. That is a fact; that will not change no matter where you get your news or read it from.
IT IS INHERENTLY OPINIONATED.
This is News for some but there is no such thing as Fair and Balanced or Fact news.
When human beings are involved it means we all see things differently at times. News outside of America admits it is biased; News in America in the last 75 years has tried to "market" the idea of "journalistic integrity" when since before America became a nation it has been the venue of News to express opinion. Often as in media, owned and operated by "Newsservices" for political reason.
It is up to you what you see; what you hear and what you understand.
The Only Facts For a Christian is The Word of God.
You control what you see; Be Carful how you read a story. You control what you hear; Be careful what and who you are listening to. You control what you understand; be mindful of God to direct your understanding.
In all things remember; you control how you act upon them; don't react to them.
