Post 1: Israel’s Pathetic Excuses. Post 2: Mahmoud Abbas: “Israel Orchestrated Terror Plot In Negev”


Post 2: 12:30 pm.

All remains quiet on the southern front.

This morning, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas who has been conspicuously silent about the terrorist attack on Israeli civilians in the Negev last Thursday (except to petition the United Nations to stop possible Israeli retaliatory strikes against the perpetrators in Gaza) finally had this to say in an interview in Arabic to Al-Jazeera: “Israel manufactured the events in the Negev to take the public’s attention away from the social protests taking place in the streets of Tel Aviv.”

If this sounds familiar, it should. Abbas’ best selling book “The Other Side: The Secret Relationship between Nazism and Zionism (which is based on his Ph.D. dissertation at Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow) advances the preposterous theory that the Jews killed in the Holocaust were actually killed by Jews who wanted to exterminate their fellow Jews, and that the Holocaust was a “fantastic lie”. He has since recanted that latter comment in English–but if his comments of today in Arabic are any indication . . . well you can finish the sentence, dear reader.

So now, Arabs around the world–and their friends–will embrace the idea that Israel recruited terrorists to murder Israelis in the Negev. After all, what could be more logical? The world, dear readers, has become a dangerously scary place where people will believe anything.

One more thing. Yesterday, Abbas, ever a stalwart of democracy, issued a Presidential decree indefinitely postponing elections in Judea and Samaria. Originally scheduled for July 2010, then rescheduled for October 22, 2011, they have not been rescheduled.

Post 1: 8:00 am. 

No new missiles overnight.

The pathetically nauseating race is on this morning to find even more reasons for the IDF to do nothing to defend Israeli citizens here in southern Israel. According to a senior diplomatic official, Israel cannot act against the terrorists in Gaza because of:

1. the situation in Egypt (we could ‘damage ties’ with Egypt’s transitional government)

2. the situation in Syria (we could divert attention away from the popular movement to get rid of Assad)

3. the situation in the Palestinian Authority (such action could cause more countries to vote for a Palestinian state in the United Nations)

4. the lack of a sufficient number of Iron Dome batteries to defend Israelis (there are only two operational Iron Dome batteries in the South–not enough to handle the 10,000+  missiles that Hamas now has)

5. damaging the ‘special’ U.S.-Israel relationship (apparently the Obama Administration has told Israel in no uncertain terms not to engage in a full-blown assault on Gazan terror groups)

Yesterday, even more absurd reasons were given:

6. lack of international support for an attack on terrorists in Gaza

7. disrupting the on-going movement to ‘democracy’ in Libya

8. the attacks of last Thursday were carried out by a small radical group in Gaza (the People’s Resistance Committees) that Hamas has no control over.

What has happened to Israel? How did we get to such an unbelievable situation that Israel will not even defend its own citizens against terror attacks? In the Jerusalem Post this morning is a long op-ed written by your humble servant in which the specific reasons for this ridiculous state of affairs are detailed. Here is a link to this article:
