The Final Journey
This is the story about the man who makes these movies.
But fate had it that I come down with Yishai to Sderot anyway, and do a show. The city was a bit empty. Many stores were closed and just a few people peppered the landscape. We interviewed the residents as well as a very brave 11 year old girl. No red alerts came during the two hour show, yet afterwards when visiting with Shlomo Wollins, the missiles started coming. “TZEVA ADOM, TZEVA ADOM” (color red) – which is basically ‘red alert’ came over the loud speakers of the city. I was picking some notes on the guitar in the living room when the alert came on. Yishai, Shlomo and Ezra all left the living room area and told me to come to the sealed room which is a bomb shelter.
After a brief moment, I heard outside a giant THUD, but it was far away and I was not alarmed.
After this, we went out and Shlomo showed us a few other places that were recently hit by the kassam rockets that the Arabs were launching against this suburban city.
This Kassam hit the roof top and plunged into the bathroom of a neighbor of Shlomo's as she was taking a shower. (See roof damage above). She was hospitalized and the home was abandoned by the family, and has someone watching it now as the owner comes and goes. To see this house actually get hit, watch this video.
Schools have had to have re-enforced walls and roofs as well. Notice this newer, outer wall added on to this school in Sderot.
Run, Jew. Run!
They must be laughing at us. A few pipe bomb kassam rockets fired from abandoned Jewish settlements, and the Jews go running. Help us Olmert! Help us Arcady Gaydamak! Save us from the Arab onslaught. Get us out of here! Evacuate us!
And you know what? Even though they are wrong in their thinking that the solution is to be evacuated, they are also absolutely right. Israel should be fighting back. We are more powerful then the Palestinian Authority and their terrorists, and we can clean out Gaza if we stopped worrying more about their civilians’ safety, then our own civilians. So, when the Sderot residents' own leaders refuse to respond to this onslaught of rocket fire on their community, what else can they do? - Except run for it!
Bush & Co. will NOT let Israel respond in any meaningful manner to stop the terror.
The Olmert government is a travesty. They have no right to hold on to power when their citizens are being bombarded by flying bombs and they make no move to eliminate this terror entity. It is akin to a community terrorized by the mafia and the police refusing to go and bust the criminals.
Olmert is in trouble. The Winograd report has basically called him a failure and unfit to lead this country. Olmert has the lowest trust of any prime minister in the history of Israel. A recent poll taken showed him having only 3% of the people’s confidence. His defense minister, Amir Peretz, himself from Sderot, seems to show a disdain for his own town, by not acting to stop the carnage.
Of course, it’s not only our leaders who are accomplices to letting Jews be attacked and chased away from their homes. Our puppet government won’t move unless America gives it’s 'ok'. Bush & Co. will NOT let Israel respond in any meaningful manner to stop the terror. Bush has plans to establish a Palestinian State (Road Map & two states living 'side by side in peace') and if Israel re-takes Gaza, this ‘vision for a New Middle East will not materialize. Bush has plans for this region, and they have to do with trade blocks and a centralized global power, as his father, George Bush Sr. has talked about during his time as president. Of course, our leaders do not HAVE to listen to Bush, but our leaders are weak. Lacking trust in the Almighty, they feel we need to bend to the world’s demands. And so, with the carrot and the stick in front of them, they will bow to the will of the world. ...And it is easy to do so. Our leaders are corrupt (just check all the police investigations going on against a number of Kadima party members).
Our leaders are not patriots anymore; they are only beholden to themselves. If they can promote themselves, stay in power, get more power, and make more money, then they will most likely sell out to foreign powers and their interests. They may convince themselves that we need the world on our side, and that we can't go it alone. They are maybe told, "If you want us to provide defense weapons and airplane parts for you, get with our plan If you go along with us, it's true, you will be a smaller Israel, but we will help support you. And if you DON'T play ball with us, you will never see the outside of a jail cell again..." The carrot and the stick.
And so our leaders convince themselves that we are better off giving in, not fighting the world, and ‘better that we are a down-sized Israel, than no Israel at all'. But they are wrong. It's the rationalization of the weak. It is evil.
There is little, if any, integrity left in today’s world. There is no sense of shame, there is no sense of responsibility except to one’s self.
With the Winograd report, the unnecessary deaths from the last war in Lebanon, the north of the country in ruins, and now the south of the country under attack, with 150,000 people at a demonstration (representing millions of citizens) calling for Olmert’s resignation, Olmert still refuses to leave. For shame! But Olmert will not budge, because he knows that if he leaves office, he will most likely be on his way to jail. Too many sleazy deals and investigations are catching up with him.
Olmert may just do what Ariel Sharon did when he was prime minister. - Create and implement another ‘disengagement’ to focus the public attention away from his unscrupulous business dealings. Olmert is naming HIS plan, ‘Convergence’. Olmert has called for – not cleaning out the terrorist threat, but cleaning out the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria!
He is continuing to build a new de-facto border in Israel called ‘The Security Fence”, which essentially cuts off most of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria from the rest of Israel and we see how small this state is becoming. Olmert will also look to give the Golan to Syria, and divide Jerusalem.
Run, Jew. Run!
What interests me, is the psyche of the Israelis who are interviewed on the radio. Gabi Gazit, a long time IBA radio talk show host was interviewing a woman from Sderot, on his last broadcast, May 16th, 2007. He was asking her what would she say to the Prime Minister if she could speak to him. I expected her to act with normal thinking, and demand the Prime Minister go into Gaza and clean it up once and for all. Instead, she said, Olmert should ‘resign’. She added that if the government could not help them in Sderot against the kassams, then ‘Get us out of here! Evacuate us!’.
Run, Jew. Run!
I asked my husband why the Israelis like the one we just heard on the radio choose the ‘run away’ mode. Why don’t we demand that the government take over Gaza and make the ENEMIES of Israel flee instead? He replied that most Jews don’t think like this woman. It’s just that this is the type of person the Israeli media choose to put on our air waves. He's right. I remembered the brave Jewish residents that lived in Gaza for years with kassam rocket attacks, -they never asked to leave. They never wanted to flee. They also demanded (like a rational thinking person) that the government go in and retaliate. The problem is, that the main stream media in Israel makes us LOOK weak. They choose to interview the people who say, “FLEE! Take us out of here.” They don’t want to show the brave and patriotic Jews who love the land and want to fight for it, because they know it is worth fighting for. They don’t show all the Jews who state proudly that this is our land, promised to us by G-d. I know there are many Jews in Sderot that want the government to crush the enemy, but you don't hear those people on the radio here. The media makes anyone who does get a chance to come on air and state these things, out to be war mongers, 'primitive' or crazy right wingers who incite to violence.
I believe that Olmert (and politicians like him) wants us to appear weak, so he can convince the country of the need to 'converge'… As he stated in a speech back in June 9, 2005, “We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies….”
Run, Jew. Run!
See Olmert run.
See Olmert run fast.
Run, Jew. Run!
(OK, let's face it, I wanted to title this piece, "Mr. Bush, Do These People Really Deserve A State?", but how many of you would have stopped to read that? So I went for the shock factor and now, here you are... )
Dear Mr. Bush,
You often talk about your 'vision for a New Middle East' . You came out with a speech on June 24, 2002 with yet another peace plan, the infamous Road Map - two states living side by side, in peace. You seem to believe that all cultures are morally equal and share the same values, but you are mistaken, and so your peace plan, the Road Map, --and all other efforts you propose to press on this region will go down in history as just another futile peace plan, after:
Camp David Accords (1978)
The Reagan Peace Plan (September 1, 1982)
Madrid Conference of 1991
Oslo Accords (1993)
Wye River Memorandum (October 23, 1998)
The Clinton Peace Plan (December 23, 2000)
Mitchell Commission (Plan) ( October 17, 2000 )
The Tenet Plan (June 10, 2001)
Camp David 2000 Summit (2000)
Taba summit (January, 2001)
The Zinni Plan (March 26, 2002)
Elon Peace Plan (2002)
Arab Peace Initiative (March 28, 2002)
The 2002 Nusseibeh-Ayalon Principles
The People's Voice (July 27, 2002)
March 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative
Geneva Accord (October 20, 2003)
Sharm el-Sheikh Summit of 2005 (February 8, 2005)
2006 Franco-Italian-Spanish Middle East Peace Plan
Saudi peace proposal
Syrian government requests for peace talks (on-going to present)
The Road map
Whew! One gets tired reading through that list.
Your peace plan, the Road Map is just another in a long line of futile and foolish notions of how to make peace with Arab and Islamic Terrorists.
Your plans of forming a Palestinian (terror) State in the belly of Israel will bring a bloodbath, not peace. I think you know this as well, but are willing to push this forward anyway, because quite frankly, your 'trade blocks' and MEFTA (Middle East Free Trade Area) treaties, oil deals and the strengthening of a global government are more important to you than Jewish lives. (But that is fodder for a whole other article.) Israel is the sacrificial lamb to appease the Arab countries whom you want to tie into your MEFTA trade block. Give the PLO a State, and maybe the Saudis will play ball, bring in some other Arab States and wallah, you will have your MEFTA trade block.
Few people know, but a major part of the Gaza Disengagement plan was to further the goals of a 'free trade zone' here in Israel, under the guise of peace. It also was pursued by some of our politicians and their advisors, as a great investment in gambling, casinos, and tourist traps, all in the guise of 'peace'. See this article on the Gaza peace plan. We shall leave this topic now, as I digress, and this trade-block subject can fill a whole book.
So now again, we have more peace plans, and Bush is espousing how his 'vision' will create a New Middle East. President Bush is now putting time tables or 'benchmarks' on Israel to implement 'on the ground actions', including making Israel agree to allow PA bus and truck convoys to shuttle between Gaza and (PA-controlled areas of) Judea and Samaria. Israel is expected to remove security roadblock checks in Judea and Samaria, and Israel will be forced to provide arms, ammunition and equipment to PA security forces in an ?immediate and ongoing? manner, whenever U.S. Maj.-Gen. Dayton ?requests? it.
U.S. demands on the P.A. is only for them to increase deployment of security forces and begin curbing rocket fire by militants, according to media reports.
President Bush, would you agree to terms like this for your own country with an enemy that commits terror? Would you make a state for Osama Bin Laden in America if he opened up more terror attacks against you?
Would you believe him if he signed a peace treaty with the USA promising not to attack, while urging his followers in Arabic to keep up their Jihad?
Israel's song entry for the Eurovision got nixed.
The name of the song was, " Push the Button" and was written and performed by the Israeli band, Teapacks. The lyrics of the song had connotations of the Iranian terror threat on Israel. I wrote about this song in an earlier entry on this blog.
The broadcast got cut out for five seconds and was replaced by a silent red screen.
Actually, Israel's IBA news tells us that a technical problem happened while the band was performing their song for the Semi-finals of the Eurovision contest. According to Israel Radio, Technical difficulties occured during Teapacks' performance. The broadcast got cut out for five seconds and was replaced by a silent red screen.
From the beginning, the Eurovision heads frowned on Israel's message in their song. Arutz 7 reported on previous trouble with this year's entry from Israel.
"The lead singer of the group, Kobi Oz held a press conference following the band’s second rehearsal in Helsinki, where he accused Eurovision organizers of making their performance look like “a video game from the 80s.” The group offered as an example of the interference an animated background that producers had replaced the band’s footage of tanks and explosions with. The new background features an image of the globe becoming blue and white, the colors of Israel’s flag – something Teapacks members speculate is meant to insinuate Jewish influence."
...And suddenly, 5 seconds of the song goes bad. hmmmm
Because part of the song was missing from this tech failure, the Israel Broadcast Authority's delegation to the contest requested that we either be allowed to perform the song again or be given additional points to make up for the lapse. The European Broadcasting Union denied our request.
How convenient! From the beginning, the Eurovision committee did not want this song to be performed in front of the hundreds of millions of viewers who watch the yearly contest from all over Europe and parts of the Middle East. "It's absolutely clear that this kind of message is not appropriate for the competition," said Kjell Ekholm, one of the organizers of the contest. - He was referring to the 'questionable lyrics' of the song 'Push the Button". They didn't like Israel singing a song about how the world wants to destroy them.
And so, Israel is erased from the competition. I wonder if this same technical glitch happened to England or Germany, what the Eurovision judges would do? I doubt they would 'Push the button' on them!
