Title: Traitors, Simply Traitors
Copyright Sha’i ben-Tekoa 2016
“Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim” It is the evening of the 2nd day, khes beShvat, Parashas Beshalakh, tav-shin-ayin-vav, the evening of the 1st day, Sunday, 17 January 2016, webcasting from the last country in the world where Jew-killing is legit.
We had another one today. The details are sketchy. In Otniel, that’s a Jewish community, a.k.a. settlement south of Hevron, a Jewish woman, 38 years old, was at home with her children when a savage, antisemitic Muslim barbarian 16 year old entered and stabbed her to death in front of her children and then was able to leave.
When the paramedics arrived, they said they saw a terrible sight. They tried to revive her but failed.
There were three other attempts at murdering the Chosen People today by murderously envious Ishmaelites, bitter ever since their patriarch was driven into exile because he was seen by his father’s wife as potentially homicidal, perfectly capable of murdering her son to displace him. Ishmael surely was drenched in bitterness because as the first-born son, he was entitled to more than the second son was but because he was such a wild ass of a 16 or 17 year-old — and this happened over 3,700 years ago — he was expelled from his father’s tents.
Two thousand years later, his seed managed to steal the Torah miSinai as Sarah feared he would steal the inheritance of her husband Avraham from her son Isaac. Well, his seed did steal it from the seed of his half-brother, re-wrote it and called it the Qur’an.
Still, in every generation since then, it has been apparent to anyone with eyes in his head that the seed of Isaac was more civilized than that of Ishmael, more productive, more educated, and gentler than the seed of Ishmael who is a slave to its bitter envy of the Jews. It makes him hate them for it makes him feel inferior.
So besides today’s dead Jewess, three other attempts were made to stab Jews, one at the Bahad 3 junction in Samaria. There a Muslim tried to stab soldiers but they shot him dead.
Three other Arabs were discovered lurking in New Jerusalem itself, deep inside really, in Kiryat Moshe. They were loitering outside a shul/synagogue during morning prayers waiting for people to come out. Thank G-d they were suspected, arrested and found to be bearing knives.
Likewise, a female wild ass of an Arabian was also stopped in time at the western gate to Kiryat Arba next to Hevron, bent on knifing.
Still, still, we must thank HaShem for this current spasm of bloodlust by these barbarians because it is so mild compared to what we had 15 years ago.
And there was actually great news last week, even more than it appeared at the time. It was definitely heartening to follow the Ezra Nawi story, the Breaking the Silence operative pleased with himself for informing PLO murderers of a land sale by one of their own to a Jew; pleased that the seller was arrested, tortured and murdered. It was an expose, a hidden camera run by a patriotic Israeli graduate of a combat unit who had persuaded the BTS crowd he was one of them.
Well, it turns out, revealed in a piece that made me smile, in Friday’s Makor Rishon, this is only the beginning. It seems that this is the first leak to the media of such material collected by the Ahd Kahn group, which in Hebrew means, roughly translated in this context, “this far and no further,” in reference to the dreadful BTS [Breaking The Silence] slandering of the army of the Jewish people. Ad Kahn was started by a former officer in the top commando unit of the legendary Golani Brigade, one Gilad Akh, who with other combat veteran volunteers like himself insinuated themselves into BTS to expose these dissembling, traitorous Israelis of Jewish extraction.
He said some of them were naïve, but others real bad actors, Jews of the extreme Left angrily opposed to a state for the Jewish people. With money from abroad, they stage artificial confrontations with the army to videotape and, of course, tried to make the army took bad in them. They pay Arabs to do this, pay them to throw stones. Gilad Ach says that if not for BTS organizing the months-long, even years-long now confrontations at Bilin on Fridays, there would be no demonstrations, no rock throwing. These are hired rock-throwers paid for by BTS.
Akh makes the case that his group is doing this to prod the army and GSS to do something about such groups. He says the GSS have a unit dogging the Price Tag boys but none monitoring BTS and other groups who are troublemakers no less than the Price Tag adolescents are.
He also brought up the constant aggression in Area C via Euro-funded land grabs and the construction of new dwellings mentioned on this webcast last week.
This was a separate news item altogether. The EU is cranking out more legislation against Jews living in Judea and Samaria, against Israel in general in this regard, as the EU simultaneously trashes the Oslo documents by funding these incursions into Area C that Oslo said was exclusively Israeli territory – as it had been since 1967.
The nerve of these Europeans, the dishonesty. They are no more faithful to the Oslo documents than the savages they support with these front groups called NGOs, non-governmental organizations, which is a blatant lie and deception.
They are funded by governments and therefore are most certainly governmental agencies belonging to foreign governments that side with our mortal enemies.
Anyway, the good news is that Ahd Kahn says the exposure of Ezra Nawi was only the beginning of presenting more incriminating material.
I say it is about time for Israel to gird its loins and indict BTS and other groups for collaborating with the enemy, which is a serious charge.
This was the focus last week as well of Ahd Kahn’s other video of Alon Liel addressing BTS and prodding the group to work to drive Israel out of the UN as the Arabs want.
This, by the way, led to another flap. Minister of Education Naftali Bennett and not for the first time opened his mouth and got into trouble. Rightly horrified by Alon Liel’s behavior, this former director-general of the Foreign Ministry, Bennett said in a radio interview, “I’m beginning to think that the Foreign Ministry has a problem in its DNA. There are always complaints about the Foreign Ministry. There is a profound problem with people like Alon Liel who was at the ministry a long time. They ask where the public diplomacy/hasbara is. What hasbara? When you have the number one pyromaniac at the head of the system, what hasbara is there?”
Not surprisingly, Foreign Ministry personnel took umbrage and declared they would have nothing to do with his Education Ministry until Bennett apologized, which he did. This is a case where telling the truth as he did was not worth the result. It is no secret that for years Shimon Peres, several times foreign minister, ran that ministry like a private fiefdom whose staffers were Peres protégés, Israelis as Hellenistic and dejudaized as Peres himself. They are the types who are responsible for their inability to enthusiastically, when abroad, defend the policy of every government since 1967 that Israel has the right to continue to rule in Judea and Samaria so long as there is no serious prospect that a withdrawal would be beneficial.
That in fact was tried, wasn’t it, and failed miserably, between 1994 and 2002.
Tragically, for years the Foreign Ministry has been staffed by Peres-ites. Bennett knows this. Lots of people do, but opening his mouth was counter-productive.
Speaking of Peres, in the German weekly the Mirror/Der Spiegel yesterday, there was an interview with him in which he agreed that “…Balestinian frustration over the absence of peace talks plays a role in the recent Jew-killing escapades with knives and via vehicular homicide. He said there should be two states and the fact there is not contributes to young Balestinians being against us, and Israel does not see the protest, only the killings.”
This man has once again proven himself Israel’s national village idiot.
Yes, Shimon Peres has once again shown himself to be a fool, the opposite of a wise man, a fool about people and about life. Politics for him and shallow Leftists like him means having a beautiful dream and trying to make it come true, and never mind the misperception of reality and the impossibility of the dream and the reality of history and of facts.
He reminds me of how I stopped being left of center when I realized that the views and the policies on social and political matters of the Left are intended, first of all, most importantly, to reflect well on the person who holds them. Never mind the reality; never mind the possible result. The pose adopted is meant to show the poseur in a beautiful light.
Peres went on in this interview — YNETnews.com reported it — to harshly criticize the Israeli government and Prime Minister Netanyahu, and he rejected the accusation that Balestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is inciting to violence. “Abbas is a very courageous man. I met him many times and negotiated with him directly. He wants peace and he fights terror.” This man Peres is so unsophisticated in his thinking, he is likely capable of recognizing the lunacy of a David Irving the Holocaust Denier but not of this other Holocaust Denier in whom he sees a “man of peace who fights terror.” This is what Peres wants to see in him.
This character Abbas has most definitely in Arabic indicated his support for the current fashion of Jew-killing among this people. His PA has already declared the Israeli Arab who a couple of weeks ago shot up that café in Tel Aviv, murdered three people and then was killed by the forces of civilization, to be a Balestinian martyr. That is Abbas’s PA, which would not do that without his permission.
Yet in Abbas, Shimon Peres sees an opponent of violence, a courageous man who wants peace. This is the same Abbas who has said he will never recognize Israel as the Jewish state.
These Leftists live in another reality, as the Muslims they support live in another reality, a make-believe world. The PA, as PMW reported last week, teaches its schoolchildren that Israel murdered Arafat; the same PA whose maps of Palestine in schoolrooms show no Israel at all.
On Thursday in the Knesset, in the wake of the Ezra Nawi expose in Breaking the Silence and Alon Liel, Jewish Home MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, a religious woman, tabled a bill to outlaw Breaking the Silence as an illegal organization, as the Islamic Movement’s Northern Branch was recently outlawed. Usually, an initiative like this comes from the Defense Ministry, not the Knesset, so this is something new.
As part of the whole issue of these NGOs funded from aboard, MK Moalem-Refaeli said that BTS is a “subversive organization acting to change Israel’s policies not through the acceptable rules of the game in a democratic country but by putting on international pressure to harm Israel.”
She and others, yours truly included, cannot stomach what BTS produces which is presented as soldiers’ testimony regarding war crimes by the IDF in Judea and Samaria and Gaza in which the alleged witness is never named, and the alleged crimes are never reported to the IDF to investigate, which as good citizens they should. Instead, with these manufactured statements, BTS goes abroad and smears Israel’s soldiers as war criminals and reveals its true agenda, which is not eliminating alleged IDF abuse but driving a half-million Jews from homes they have every right to live in peacefully.
Of course, the Left in the Knesset here remains outraged at this “offense against democracy” in their terms, like the legislation tabled by Ministress of Justice Ayelet Shaked. One Meretz MK Michal Rozin sneered, “Stalin would be proud of this bill. This is relentless political persecution. It endangers the lives of those who oppose the government’s occupation policy and is an additional sign of Israeli democracy being replaced by violent fascism.”
You got that? A bill to outlaw BTS for telling lies about Israeli soldiers and their alleged crimes is seen as “violent fascism.”
Another MK, another woman, Ksenia Svetlova of the Zionist Union, the old Labor Party, sarcastically said, “The Right should copy the laws Saudi Arabia uses to kill people who speak out against the government. The bill is a danger to democracy greater than the dangers that the Right says Breaking the Silence pose.”
How ironic, how psychologically projective. How the Left disrespects the democratic right of the people to elect a government whose policies the people support and does so in the name of democracy.
This makes no sense. What is going on in the Israeli Left since last week is their being exposed for the enemies of democracy that they are, and so they respond like Arabs. When you accuse an Arab of something, he does not refute the charge, he accuses you of it. Here they claim those who exposed them are the danger to democracy.
This is how the Arab mind responds. Call them terrorists and they don’t defend against the accusation by refuting the charge with reasons and fact. They throw the charge right back and claim their accusers are the real terrorists. Here the Left accuses the defenders of Israeli democracy of being a danger to democracy.
I think Gilad Akh has got right. The GSS and/or IDF have to go after BTS, Tayyush, and other NGOs like them as aggressively as they do the juvenile delinquents among the price tag boys.
The prime minister said on Thursday that Israel needs to do a reset with the EU in regard to Area C. He explicitly attacked the EU for funding illegal building there in a “clear attempt to create political realities in the West Bank.” Gilad Akh also complains that the army has done nothing about these incursions.
We are under attack from many directions. The savages themselves with their knives like today’s murder and the other attempts that failed. The Europeans are our enemies. They support the enemy with cash and encouragement for their illegal building on land they have no right to; and then we have Jewish antiJews like Alon Liel and BTS who are just traitors.
Well, today was arguably the greatest in the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, the Muslim secret agent in the White House who reached the pinnacle of his agenda. In his first inaugural address, he slapped the Jews in the face. In the next sentence, he promised a reset with Islam, and the next day, his first day at work in the Oval Office, he made his first call as president to Holocaust denying, antisemitic murderer Mahmoud Abbas.
Today was the culmination of Obama’s goal of fundamental change for America, and since the Jews were uppermost on his mind on Inauguration Day and his first day at work in the Oval Office, today was his crowning achievement. He has fundamentally changed America from being exceptional for its support of Israel to joining forces with Israel’s greatest enemy.
As the Europeans in their separate governments and EU bureaucracy and front NGO organizations provide the Jew-killers here with funds, so Obama today released more than a hundred billion dollars to the Iranians. It is no accident that Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani — you know, that smiling moderate — said, “In implementing the deal, all are happy except Zionists, warmongers, sowers of discord among Islamic nations and extremists in the U.S. The rest are happy.”
Take note that in his list of the unhappy, the Zionists were first, uppermost in his mind. For him, this deal aims above all at Israel, as Obama made his first call as President to the Jew-killer Abu Mazen. As Shimon Peres, the national village idiot, still thinks the violence here is about the absence of a state for the Ancient Palestinians who are entitled to one – oblivious to the religious dimension of this violence – so observers today continue to miss the centrality of the existence of the State of Israel in the minds and hearts of Arabs and Muslims around the world. Existence of Israel is the No. 1 evil in the world to them, and it is no accident that at the UN, where almost a third of the member-states are officially Muslim, the No. 1 topic has long been Israel and its illegitimate existence.
It is no accident as well that in the UN Human Rights Council Israel is the only permanent agenda item. Israeli is permanently accused of human rights offenses. The existence of Israel is for Muslims the No. 1 crime against Islam. The very existence of Israel is experienced as a mortal threat to the religion and the umma, the world community of Believers.
So maybe it was mildly soothing news that last night: AIPAC called today a “dangerous moment for America and our allies.” Hint-hint. And it is AIPAC I had in mind last week when expressing my hope that friends of Israel in the States begin the process of composing a sense of the Senate and a sense of the House Resolution declaring that American support for an any anti-Israel resolution in the UN Security Council, including abstaining in such a vote, will be disowned by the Congress of the United States.
This guy Obama, like Abbas, like Rouhani, like all serious Muslims, is obsessed with the existence of Israel and is determined to destroy it, G-d forbid. This guy is a menace to the America he has fundamentally changed because he fundamentally does not like it and one of the things he does not like is its support for Israel. He will remain in office for another year and less than a week. He must be prevented from carrying out his nefarious antiJew schemes.

About the Author Sha’i ben-Tekoa is the author of
“Phantom Nation: Inventing the ‘Palestinians’ as the Obstacle to Peace”available at Amazon.com on Kindle or 3 Volume Paperback. Check out the reviews on Amazon.com Book Description: Publication Date: January 4, 2014
If you are a supporter of Israel, “Phantom Nation” is a must-read book.
If you support the putatively Paleolithic “Palestinians,” you had better read this book. Sha’i ben-Tekoa skewers the myth of a “Palestinian” nation with rights to land the League of Nations specifically recognized as Jewish.
The author, hired for a research project by the Office of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir discovered the first mention ever in a United Nations resolution of “Palestinians” in the year 1970, three years after Israel conquered Judea and Samaria,a.k.a. the “West Bank.” The author also shows how this very no-name of a name, “West Bank,” had to be invented for hills the Arabs never had a name for. Hence, the sterile, topographical description lacking all historical associations, which exposes the fraud that is the “Palestinian” counter-claim to land the League said was Jewish. Before 1959, when Gamal Nasser of Egypt conjured up the idea of a phantom “Palestinian” nation, the record of Holy Land history is perfectly empty of any mention of them. After Ben-Tekoa’s government assignment ended, he went in search of the full story surrounding the birth of this allegedly archaic community, and the story he tells covers the entire sweep of Zionist and Israeli history, its wars and waves of Arab and Muslim massacres (terrorism) and the birth of this notional nation a Biblical generation of forty years after the League of Nations’ decision. He likens the rise of “Palestinian Nationalism” to Holocaust Denial as a twin perversion of history; as our generation’s successor ideology to medieval Christianity and Nazism as forms of homicidal anti-Semitism. It is our time’s way of justifying the mass murder of Jews. “Phantom Nation” is also a crackling, riveting, great read.
Review From Outpost, April, 2015, by Ruth King, Board of Directors, AFSI: Americans for a Safe Israel “…When Shai Ben-Tekoa was doing research for the Office of Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir on the United Nations bias against Israel, he discovered that in the period of The League of Nations (1919-1945) and in United Nations Resolutions from 1945 until 1969 there was not a single reference to the Arabs as “the people of Palestine.” That term had its debut in Resolution 2535 in 1969. One year later, UN Resolution 2628 referenced the Arabs as “the Palestinian people” inventing a national identity which everyone has been parroting ever since.These facts inspired ben-Tekoa to write his meticulously researched and detailed three-volume work Phantom Nation: Inventing the “Palestinians” as the Obstacle to Peace. These volumes are packed with more information that any single book on the history of Israel. Ben-Tekoa chronicles it all–from the early pre-state Zionists, to the rebirth of the Jewish state, through the endless wars and terrorism, to the present Holocaust denial and international anti-Semitism.
Furthermore, Ben Tekoa understands the role that the Koran and Islam have played in the Muslim/Arab war against Israel. Israel stands in the way of Muslim dreams of a Caliphate with Sharia law throughout the Middle East. In this respect he goes beyond some of the best books on the conflict, including the late Irish politician Conor Cruise O’Brien’s The Siege and Samuel Katz’s Battleground.
The blood curdling anti-Jewish fulminations of Iran are a call for a final jihad against Israel. Bat Ye’or in her many books & articles detailed the Islamic origins of anti-Israel hatred as did the late Saul Friedman in his splendid Land of Dust.
I highly recommend Ben Tekoa’s work. Phantom Nation belongs in homes, libraries, and should be studied by all Israel support organizations.
