UPDATES 9 am Israel time, Thursday, October 31 2013:
*Yet another incredible statement out of the United States State Department yesterday, this one from spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Addressing Israel’s release of 26 terrorist murderers, Psaki had this to say: “It is a difficult but necessary step to ensure the success of the negotiations; measures of this kind were made – by both sides.”
It is difficult but necessary? Your humble servant wonders what the reaction of Jen Psaki and John Kerry would be if these murderers were released on the streets of Washington, D.C. thereby endangering the lives of everyone in the State Department. How necessary would it be then? But the U.S. State Department and the Obama White House have no qualms at all about putting Israeli lives in danger.
And “measures of this kind were made by both sides? What? Could Psaki repeat that please? The Palestinians have taken no measures whatsoever. How stupid does Psaki think that we all are?
Once again, the U.S. State Department has become nothing more than a propaganda instrument for the PLO/Palestinian Authority.
*The 0404 organization has published a list of “rock” attacks on Israeli motorists in Judea and Samaria between June and September. The organization notes that it continually has to fight through a “conspiracy of silence” on the part of the IDF and the Egged bus lines–both of which have a vested interest in giving out false “minimal” numbers so that the Israeli public does not know what is really going on.
All told there were 664 attacks: 181 in June, 120 in July, 155 in August, and 208 in September. Actually, 0404 notes that this number only scratches the surface; most Jewish community members do not report “rock” attacks.
*Israeli Navy officers on board a Devorah (Israel Navy Coast Guard patrol ship) were given a guided tour yesterday of the U.S.S. Stout–a destroyer carrying cruise missiles which is currently located off the coast of Syria. This picture appeared on a Facebook page:
The government of Benjamin Netanyahu continues to break all red lines.
Not only do we have now an Israeli government that is willing to put Jerusalem “on the table”, the Golan Heights “on the table, and Israeli borders “on the table”, but we also now have a government that is willing to put Israel’s nuclear arsenal “on the table.”
It has been revealed this morning that Israel attended a secret meeting in Switzerland last week with the United States, Russia, Britain, Iran, Libya, and Saudi Arabia.
And what, you may ask, was the subject of this clandestine conference? Supposedly, it was to lay the groundwork for convening an international conference on the demilitarization of the Middle East–specifically as relates to nuclear weapons.
Heading the Israeli delegation was Jeremy Issacharoff (Deputy Director General for Strategic Affairs in the Foreign Ministry), as well as a representative of the Atomic Energy Commission. The Arab countries all sent representatives from their embassies in Switzerland. And why did they send only representatives of their embassies? Because they do not have Atomic Energy Commissions.
Stop and think about this for a moment. We have the three countries in the world with the greatest number of nuclear weapons (Russia, the U.S., and Britain) and three countries that supposedly have no nuclear weapons (Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran).
And we have Israel whose nuclear weapons have held what little peace Israel has had for the last 45 years.
So, let’s return to the idea of the International Conference–an idea undoubtedly cooked up by Russia in concert with its friends in Syria and Iran and all too facilely abetted by the ever weakening United States. What is the real purpose of the conference? What will the main subject of discussion be?
The main subject, as every israelstreet reader knows, will be destroying Israel’s nuclear weapons.
Every effort will be made to denude this country of its most valuable deterrent and once again to place the existence of Israel and the lives of Israelis in danger.
Thank you PM Netanyahu.
