Rec’d Reading

Excellent reading laying out the what and wherefores of “occupation.”  Aren’t you sick of hearing this venomous and INACCURATE label applied to Israel’s existence in the Middle East?  At least skim it and focus in on the major points.

From IsraPundit

By Ted Belman

mert-book-cover1A friend of mine and warrior in the trenches, Dr Steve Carol, just published a new book, Middle East Rules of Thumb.

It has been positively reviewed by Brigette Gabriel, Dr. Paul Eidelberg, Yoni “the Blogger” Tidi of the Hugh Hewett, nationally-syndicated radio show. It can be purchased at iBookstore, or Amazon

Here is the review I like best,

    Dr. Carol has done a superb job in dissecting the complexities of the Arab/Muslim war against Israel.

    “Middle East Rules Of Thumb,” is impeccably researched.

    Each page of this unique work is “brimming” with historical facts – POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NOTWITHSTANDING!

    Dr. Carol explodes the ‘myth’ of a “historical” Palestinian nation and society. He shreds the analyses of so called middle east “pundits” who are awash in moral relativism. Historical facts and reality are brought into clear and unambiguous focus.

    It is my belief that this volume should be required reading for all members of the United States Congress and Israeli Knesset.

So do buy it and support a fellow warrior.

    This is a fine article, Lori. I would like to suppliment it with a comment/blog piece I wrote months ago that says much the same about “plopping Jews,” those that think dropping out of their mother’s womb and buying bagels for Sunday brunch constitute being Jews. Go to the link mentioned in the next line for the full text.

    Abandoning their Brothers
    by Jack Kemp (not the politician)

    In American Thinker today, Dr. Stuart Schwartz wrote an article called “Singing the Jews Blues,” http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/04/singing_the_jews_blues.html about growing anti-semitism in America and the world. Why I agree with much of what he said, the sad fact is that it is harder for Jews who want to support their own kind when they have to deal with actions and associations in people’s minds of things done by culturally powerful Jews who have abandoned any support of Jewish religious or cultural values.

    May I recommend a book that I have not yet finished, but cannot put down: The Israel Test by George Gilders. He is an intellectual giant with a pro-Israel stance that is cogent and to the point, if a bit embarrassing for its riches and unflinching honesty.

  5. Gerry Berg on

    Benny Morris’ “One State, Two States” (2009)should interest all who doubt the Palestinian commitment to a secular democratic state, a claim often made by Palestinian spokesmen and by their fans in Europe and the U.S. According to Morris, this claim is “hogwash” (p.168), and he demonstrates his understanding of it convincingly.

    His wider point is that Zionism’s historically pragmatic approach to negotiations with Arabs and Brits has been met consistently over the last century by Arab/Palestinian hostility to any form of Jewish sovereignty in the Middle East. All this is presented in a flowing jargon-free narrative that makes it accessible to a wide audience.

    It is especially useful to recommend Morris’ book to liberals who may more easily consider this negative view of Palestinian intentions since it comes from an author known widely as a “revisionist” historian acceptable (or used to be!)to the Left.

    “While Six Million Died”

    This was an assigned reading in Richard Pohlenberg’s Twentieth Century American History class at Cornell. It is heartbreaking reading and details Roosevelt’s and the State Department’s actions – a combination of indifference and hostility to the fate of European Jews – and the cowardice of most of the American Jewish community.

    I’d also recommend Commentary’s Contentions blog, especially the articles by David Hazony.

    Wow !

    He actually said that ?

    Ditto’s.

    Puts me in mind of Pam Geller.

    If only Liberal Jews would hear this message and WAKE UP.

    Thanks.

    The Silence of the Jewish Lambs
    July 21, 2009

    The presidents of Jewish organizations in the United States were craven accomplices to the Holocaust. They refused to support imperiled Jews abroad because doing so would have created controversy at home. As six million of their brethren were being slaughtered, American Jews recoiled into the fetal position. Six decades later, the current American Jewish hierarchy has just visited the White House to demonstrate that while the names may have changed, the cowardice remains.

    Jewish leaders in America know that supporting Israel requires opposing Barack Obama, which as Hillary Clinton and John McCain learned means being marginalized as racists. It is a price these invertebrates are unwilling to pay. The Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee and Hadassah were therefore silently complicit when Obama permitted Turkey to supply the Hezbollah-dominated Lebanese military with weapons that will kill Israeli Jews.

    There was additional silence from the National Council Of Jewish Women and the Union For Reform Judaism and the National Jewish Democratic Council when Obama granted to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip $900 million that will finance the murders of countless other Israeli Jews.

    There has also been stony silence from the Orthodox Union and the United Jewish Communities and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs following Obama’s decisions to deprive Israel of the fighter jets and attack helicopters necessary to fend off the Nazi-esque terrorist groups that he is subsidizing.

    The silence of the American Jewish lambs has been deafening as Obama insists that Israel must not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons designed to eradicate Zionism.

    Obama has treated Israel the way any rational person would expect Israel to be treated by a guy who spent twenty years attending an anti-Semitic church. Meanwhile, the American Jewish community has been afflicted with a severe case of moral laryngitis. Even the American Israel Public Affairs Committee has lost its voice. The group, which Internet liberals constantly identify as being the driving force behind a diabolical Hebrew conspiracy, steadfastly refuses to challenge Obama’s irrational hostility towards the Jewish state.

    For months, there have been leaks to the media claiming that the leaders of America’s major Jewish organizations are “privately distressed” about Obama’s relentless anti-Israel jihad. These are the self-serving whispers of Machiavellian poltroons. When Jewish leaders were presented the golden opportunity to challenge Obama on July 13, they responded by delivering the most submissive White House performance since the days of Monica Lewinsky.

    Fairness dictates noting that two of the fifteen leaders in attendance did take an unyielding stance. Debra DeLee of Americans For Peace Now and Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street acted as powerful advocates for the Palestinian murderers they so love. In the ongoing conflict featuring Israel and Hamas, these progressive Jewish leaders have declared “neutrality”. Yet theirs is the liberal form of neutrality, which consists of demanding that Israel capitulate to genocidal anti-Semites.

    Following the meeting, Ben-Ami gloated that the Zionist Entity would soon learn the futility of requesting American Jewish support against Obama’s predations. It seems unlikely that Israel would ever count on American Jews for anything. Israelis know that when the time arrived to make the pressure-packed decision between saving European Jewry from annihilation or worshiping Franklin Roosevelt, American Jews choked.

    Now, they are choking again.

    The communists had useful idiots, people who lacked the common sense to perceive they were supporting a cause that despised them. The Jewish community has provided Obama with useful eunuchs who lack the testicular fortitude to oppose a president practicing the “even-handed” approach between the Jews and the Jew killers.

    The president whom Jewish leaders abjectly adore refuses to meet an Israeli foreign minister who doesn’t like Arabs, but Obama warmly embraces a Holocaust-denying Palestinian president who financed the massacre of Jewish athletes. Obama’s wrath is directed not against Islamic terrorists but Jewish carpenters. He is a grotesque bigot who should be publicly confronted and thoroughly humiliated.

    Instead, American Jews compete to see who can be his most prostrate sycophant.

    As a result, Israeli Jews find themselves going back to the future…specifically 1939. Reviled by the world, not for what they do but for who they are. Threatened with annihilation by implacable anti-Semites. Abandoned by an American president disdainful of their plight.

    And cursed with fellow religionists who embrace the adage that a bowed head is never severed. Had John F. Kennedy’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning book been about the American Jewish community, it most definitely would not have been titled “Profiles In Courage.”
