The News On the Israeli Street
Palestinian terror in the last 24 hours . . .
Palestinian terror attacks occurred throughout the day and went unreported by the mainstream media, as always.
Palestinian terrorists attacked Israelis with “rocks” and Molotovs at Psagot, the Hizma Checkpoint, the Tekoa-Har Homa Road, Bani Zayid, Askar, Halhul, Hebron Hills, Dolev, Talmonim, El Aruv, Al-Khader, Sebastia, Beit El, Hizma, at the Yitzhar Junction, and along the Gaza border fence as well as at numerous other locations.
At least 30 attacks were reported by Israeli citizens to Rescue Judea and Samaria, hakolhayehudi, and rotter.
The Civil Administration carries political correctness to new levels of insanity . . .
It is not enough that the Civil Administration has been destroying Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria, now it turns out that it is actively seeking Palestinian contractors to build high-level security installations in Judea and Samaria.
Yes, you read that correctly. The Civil Administration is actively seeking Palestinians to upgrade the very installations regularly attacked by Palestinian terrorists such as IDF observation points and checkpoints.
Here is a statement released by the Civil Administration yesterday after the revelation that Palestinian contractors were being sought: “On November 2, 2017, the Civil Administration published an advertisement seeking bids regarding upgrading the crossings and other security installations. The Civil Administration is obligated to act with equality when preparing bids. The work described in the advertisement will be carried out mostly outside the crossing complexes themselves, and work carried out at the crossings complexes will be accompanied by the necessary security and supervision, as is customary in the type of work.”
Obligated to act with equality? The Civil Administration is supposed to provide security for Israelis, not to provide jobs for those trying to kill us.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry kowtows, again . . .
You may remember, dear reader, how the Brazilian government refused to accept Danny Dayan as the new Israeli Ambassador to that country last year. Eventually, after insisting that it would not change the Ambassador for someone else, the Foreign Ministry did exactly that with Yossi Shelly.
Now it is Jordan’s turn to object. Following the attempt of a Jordanian terrorist to kill an Israeli security guard earlier this year, the Jordanians have decided that Israeli Ambassador to Jordan, Einat Schlein, is no longer acceptable.
And guess what? The Foreign Ministry has agreed to replace Schlein with someone else.
Your humble servant is beginning to wonder why we appoint Ambassadors at all. We should just submit a list of possible appointees to various countries and have them choose who they want—since we don’t have the dignity to stick with and support our own choices.
The Israel fake news strikes again . . .
All Israel was abuzz last night after Channel 2 reported that President Trump had decided to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, had already ordered preparations to be made, and would make the announcement in the next few days.
However, your humble servant who already feels burned by Trump’s failure to move the Embassy before now, adopted a wait and see attitude following the old expression “Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.”
This morning, a White House spokesman said that any talk about moving the Embassy is “premature.”
To put it a different way, the fake Israeli news strikes again.
The Seventh Step: Unclean Infidels In Our Own Land
Do you remember this picture from a few months ago:
Suddenly, we Israeli Jews are living under Muslim sovereignty again. We are back to the Middle Ages courtesy of our own idiotic government.
For it was in the Middle Ages at the time of the Mamluks that Jews were forbidden to go to the Machpelah (Cave of the Patriarchs) or to the Temple Mount. In both locations, they were forced to remain on the seventh step below the top of the stairs.
Praying on the seventh step was a sign that we were unclean infidels–unclean infidels at our two holiest sites.
It was announced yesterday that the Temple Mount will be completely closed to Jews tomorrow and that Jews in Hevron will not be permitted past the seventh step going up to the Cave of the Patriarchs.
And why is this you may ask?
Because it is Mohammed’s birthday, and unclean Jews must not contaminate Mohammed’s birthday celebration.
Not permitted past the seventh step.
Can you believe it?
