The Third Intifada (Blood Doesn't Lie)

Michael L.

temple41I am getting more than a little tired of constantly having to "absorb" and react to Arab-Muslim violence against my fellow Jews.

Three of the five dead were rabbis praying in a synagogue.

From the perspective of those Arabs and Muslims engaging in these brutal acts of dehumanization and murder against the Jewish people this is a religious war... not a war over land.

They honestly believe that a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount, the holiest site to the Jewish people where David had his temple, is a desecration before Allah and therefore when I went up there a few years ago I was "storming" the very heart of where my people come from.

Many people think that the Jews have it coming for the "Occupation" but there is no occupation.

The word is virtually meaningless in the context of the living of Jews upon Jewish land.

Israel "occupies" Israel like France "occupies" France.

Israel "occupies" Israel like I "occupy" my office.

This is what David Horovitz of the Times of Israel, a moderate by anyone's measure, has to say:
Because the final thing that has to be put in writing, even on a horrible, evil day like this, when the fingers loathe the necessity to tap the keyboard, is that it’s not going to work. Palestinian terrorists, and those who incite them and support them, should know: We are not going to be shot and stabbed and bludgeoned out of here by your brutality and the false justifications you invoke to legitimate it.

We stood firm during year upon year of Second Intifada terrorism, when you were blowing up our buses, malls, restaurants and supermarkets, and pragmatism could have dictated that we do what the terrorism was designed to make us do: flee. We do not insist on maintaining our majority Jewish state to the exclusion of your rights. Anything but. We seek co-existence. But your rights cannot be achieved by denying us ours.

For this is the homeland of the Jewish nation, the only place we have ever been sovereign or sought sovereignty. And what needs writing and saying, most especially on a terrible day like today, is that we will not be driven from it.
Weakness breeds contempt.

I do not have much faith that the Netanyahu government will take the measures necessary to crack down on these insidious, vicious thugs.   The west, after all, finances them and Netanyahu's ability to stand up to Obama and the EU is limited as we have seen over the last few years with these humiliating and futile gestures, like the release of Jewish murderers from Israeli prisons who are then hailed as heroes in Ramallah and Gaza City.

My prediction is that the government of Israel will vacillate because what action should be taken is open to serious question and because however much Arabs seek to murder Jews within our historical homeland the Obama administration demands "restraint."

This is the president's way of telling the Jewish people that we actually have no rights to self-defense and that if Israel wishes to remain in the good graces of the United States it better heel, boy.

In other words, Obama and the EU and the UN and the western-left, as a whole, expect that Jews should get kicked in the face and like it.  If Israel dares to stand up for itself, as we see time and again, their base will scream from the hillsides about "genocide" and "collective punishment" and how the Jews are the "new Nazis" and so forth and so on.

I can write the damn script because I have read it so many times before.

Make no mistake, this is the Third Intifada.  The Third Terror War.  It was questionable for awhile if there was going to be a third one, but here it is.

Blood doesn't lie.

The only question now is, what is to be done about it?  I certainly do not envy Benjamin Netanyahu.  The Jewish-Israeli street is going to demand action, but the EU and the western-left - with Barack Obama leading from behind - will push in the opposite direction.  Bibi is thus trapped between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Meanwhile Naftali Bennet, Moshe Feiglin, and Avigdor Lieberman are licking their chops.

Given the history of his administration I predict Netanyahu will take half-measures and satisfy almost no one... with Livni sniping from the sidelines.  Much of the Israeli public will see him as weak and the international left will ridicule him and paint him as a savage no matter what he does.



And when you consider the long Arab war against the Jews bare in mind that after Protective Edge, the latest Gaza operation, progressives condemned Israel for massacre even as Hamas declared victory and danced in the streets.

I am sorry, but they cannot have it both ways.

What is really disappointing is the stupidity and the malice of the Left, but were it not for that stupidity and malice this blog would not even exist, so perhaps I owe them a debt.


  1. I quite agree.

    Netanyahu is not the man to win the Survival Intifada. His solution appears to be hunker down and play defense rather than actively seek to defeat the enemy.

    That would take someone who has the backbone to do it and Netanyahu has all the courage of a wet noodle. What he is doing will satisfy no one - not the Israeli public that will demand more nor the Israeli Left and its foreign acolytes who will insist that Israel return to appeasing and surrendering to its enemies.

    Its going to be a long fearsome couple of bloody years in store for the Jewish people and their state.

  2. I am a huge fan of concision.


  3. Israelis, like any other nation can only look to themselves and need to tune out what the outside world has to say about it. The fact that you have to read the Egyptian press to learn than an entire family was wiped out by a mortar attack in the Sinai yesterday and northern Sinai is at an effective state of war is no particular value. No one cares because no one cares. So pointing out to psychopaths and their pilot fish that they are bad people is laughable. CNN didn't drop the ball reporting on this, they intentionally wrote what they wrote because either they believe it or simply like poking a sharp stick at Jews because they hate Jews generally. Same with the Beeb and same with the US State Department and the Obama admin. No amount of complaining to them about them is going to change it. The fact that that palestinian bus driver really did hang himself and his own people including their own ME say so is of no consequence. The BDStards has already stated it was yet another Blood Libel by those Jews.

    The problem is that the freedom of action this affords them is always squandered. They make some positive moves and then 2 weeks from now they'll screw it up. Here's what they've done in the last 2 days: demolished some terrorist homes, deported a bunch of people, announced 78 new building permits. Good start. And now keep doing that. Keep moving forward, don't stop and wait for the Obamadroids to pout and scream and condemn them. They'll do it anyway so tune it out. BTW they muttered a half-complaint to Egypt as well for demolishing 800 houses and extending the buffer zone with Gaza to more than a kilometer. In fact they followed that half complaint with this statement ""They're working through the plan and we're continuing to support their efforts to take steps to defend their own borders," Psaki told reporters."

    But the fact that the Egyptians did it is nothing. Again, no one cares no one cares. And even if they did the Egyptians wouldn't bother responding to it. We focus on 'is this the 3rd intifada?' as if looking for someone outside of Israel to validate that statement will change what needs to be done Either it is or it isn't in either case the phrasing of that doesn't matter.

  4. "Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni announced Wednesday that Arab workers will no longer be allowed on construction sites at kindergartens in the city where shelters are being built, citing the escalating security situation and fear of terrorist attacks. The announcement almost immediately drew fire from MKs, who said it was illegal and racist."

    Yeah. So? Better chance no kindergarten kids will get killed by genocidal Arabs but what the heck who wants that when feelings might get hurt?,7340,L-4594006,00.html

  5. "A group of parents arrived at one of the kindergartens, which operates from a community center, for a meeting with school staff. They expressed concern about the presence of Arab employees who work closely with the school. They said that the issue may have a solution and guards were placed at the site.

    Moriah Peled, who accompanied her daughter to the kindergarten told Ynet: "I'm not calm, I'm terrified. There are workers here who could do whatever they want to our children. Everything is wide open. They told us that they are taking care of it, but what will be in the meantime?",7340,L-4593994,00.html

    "There are workers here who could do whatever they want to our children. "

    Yep. And sooner or later they will given the current climate. Think about the Fogels.

  6. "On Wednesday, Jordan's parliament offered a prayer in honor of the spirit of Ghassan Abu Jamal and Uday Abu Jamal - the terrorists who slaughtered five people.

    The prayer was held as the House of representatives session opened....In addition, MP Mohammed Al-Qatathh of the House of Representatives issued a statement to the assembly condemning the "Zionist attack on Jerusalem and its people" in the wake of "the heroic operation" on the synagogue in Har Nof.

    Moreover, a Jordanian clan opened up a mourning tent in Jordan's capital in honor of the terrorists. "

    So it's not just the Palestinians who are sick twisted MoFo's is it?

  7. Well here it is from the horses' mouths:

    "An Israel Radio reporter recently did random street in interviews in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem, where the responders echoed (in fluent Hebrew) Abbas’s characterization of Jews as contaminants.
    “Things here will only improve,” argued one fellow, “after the Jews are gone. Yes we want peace, but peace means no Jews.”
    Another bystander likewise recommended ethnic cleansing: “Go back to where you came from. Go to Russia, Germany, Poland – anywhere – just not here.”
    But there were also kinder voices: “I really don’t like to say so,” remarked a solicitous sort, “but what was done to you in Germany, will be done to you here too.”
    These are our peace partners. It’s spine chilling to hear such sentiments from ordinary taxi drivers and greengrocers."

    It doesn't get any clearer than that and it ought to inform what needs to be done. Big reality check needed in a lot of places.

    1. If peace means no Jews, what does "peace process" mean?

    2. Jacob, that is, indeed, an excellent question.

  8. People w/o a historical perspective are amazed to discover that virtually all of the leftward, socialist, communist movements of 19th Century were fundamentally antisemitic. From Marx to Bakunin to Lasalle and others they all openly espoused ethnic cleansing if not outright genocide of the Jews. The founder of the Socialist Democratic Party in Germany stated that Jew hate and Jewish ethnic cleansing was a foundational principal of the Socialist Democratic Party, for example. The left and right finally came together in 1894 when they joined forces to stage violent antisemitic rallies during the Dreyfus trial and who in 1905 joined forces again to stage mini-pogroms when Dreyfus was exonerated. But through it all the left, socialists, the communists, the anarchists, the anarcho-syndicalists, the corporatists and the fascists all agreed with at least that one thing that the plan for Europe should always entail the extermination of the Jews.

    Jump forward to today or 10 years ago or 20 years or 40 years ago or 1948 and the perspectives of the left and the right haven't materially changed on this. They haven't deviated. British labor governments tried to kill Israel before it was born. British army officers lead the Arab armies in the 1948 war. The right, the left, it doesn't matter. What the 'peace process' has always meant is a slow erosion of Jewish will until Israel gives up and goes away. After "east" Jerusalem they'll demand the other half. After Yesha they'll demand Golan, then the Negev then Haifa. This is why it's never precisely been about the military necessity to retain defensible land. That's certainly part of it but just as important, it's been about backing the Jews up knowing they won't push back. They'll 'study it' they'll 'consider the request' until the Arabs realize they can do with Tel Aviv what they're trying to do with Gush Etzion - which is to claim that it's 'always' been theirs. They won't need so called right of return because the Jews won't tell them to stop asking for the very land underneath them. Why move people when you can simply claim the plot someone else already lives on?

    This is what Oslo was, an 'approach' that contextualizes the fight as something the Arabs have a legitimate reason to demand and something the Jews have a moral imperative to concede. Slower certainly than Mohammed's wars or the Holocaust but it ends the same way.
