Haifa's mayor disgraces herself by validating terror-supporting deputy

The mayor of Haifa, Einat Kalisch Rotem, refused Netanyahu's request not to appoint a deputy who's supported terrorists:
Channel 10 quoted officials as saying that she rejected Netanyahu's demand not to appoint a member of Haifa's city council from the Hadash party as a paid deputy mayor, after the candidate publicly expressed support for terrorist organizations.

According to the officials, Kalisch explained to Netanyahu that the agreements were coalition agreements and that she did not intend to violate them. "Za'tara will take office only in two and a half years, according to the agreement with his faction."

Earlier this morning, Netanyahu addressed the issue of appointing Haifa City Councilor Raja Za'tara as a paid deputy mayor amid reports that he had expressed support for terrorist organizations.
I'm not sure what her ridiculous defense is, but it sounds laughable to me. She's only made herself an embarrassment by associating with such awful people.

A mixed blessing at the UN

For once, in a way, a victory was scored at the UN as a majority voted in favor of the USA's resolution for condemning Hamas, but it was one that required two thirds to fully adopt:
A U.S.-sponsored draft resolution that condemned the Palestinian Islamic terror group Hamas, which rules Gaza with an iron fist, garnered unprecedented support at the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday, while ultimately falling short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass.

Before the vote on the resolution, the 193-member world body had narrowly voted to require a two-thirds majority for approval as sought by Arab nations, rather than the simple majority urged by the United States.

In the end, the vote on the resolution to condemn Hamas was 87 in favor against 57 opposed, with 33 abstentions — a plurality but below the two-thirds requirement to adopt it. The vote to require a two-thirds majority was much closer, 75-72, with 26 abstentions and several countries changing their votes to “yes” at the last minute.

The U.S. attempted to condemn Hamas for firing hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians and using airborne incendiary devices to commit millions of dollars of damage in arson terror.
It sure sounds like the two third requirement was deliberately taken up so they wouldn't have to adopt the resolution. Still, the result is significant, as it shows some countries are starting to recognize the importance of not being lenient on terrorist movements, and let's hope they'll be willing to vote for condemning the PLO as well in the forseeable future.

The Yellow Vests aren't done yet

The French Yellow Vests movement may have succeeded in getting Emmanuel Macron to cancel his planned fuel tax hike, but they've still got more issues to bring up, and this weekend looks set to see more protests of the awful president's politics:
The French government expects the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protests in Paris this weekend could be more violent than ever, despite President Emmanuel Macron buckling on fuel tax hikes.

The Élysée Palace, seat of President Emmanuel Macron, announced to French media they are expecting “great violence” on Saturday as Yellow Vest protestors have announced “Act IV” of their nearly four-week-long protest against the Macron regime that was initially sparked by a rise in fuel taxes, franceinfo reports.

[...] While police have been called on to help quell the expected violence in the French capital, many are showing signs of sympathy to the Yellow Vests and their demands.

The Police Union Vigi Ministère de l’Intérieur has not only expressed support for the Yellow Vest movement but has called on members to go on an indefinite strike starting on Saturday, and join the Yellow Vests.
Interesting. Sounds like Macron's losing the support of many important outfits, including some of his own government officials. Based on this, he'd do better to just resign and admit he made huge mistakes. Especially when it comes to dealing with the far more serious problems the country's facing like Islamofascism.

Macron's government once again bestows awards on evil sources

No sooner did Emmanuel Macron's goverment make a terrible example of themselves by trying to honor traitor Phillipe Petain, now they want to award 2 anti-Israeli "watchdog" groups:
France decided to award its prestigious Human Rights Prize for 2018 to the controversial Israeli watchdog group B'Tselem and to Palestinian group Al-Haq, which supports total boycott and isolation of Israel internationally, drawing broad condemnation and outrage.

Several members of Al-Haq are reportedly linked to the Palestinian terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. B'Tselem, meanwhile, states that its goal is document Israeli misdeeds and crimes against Palestinians and expose these globally. Many in Israel accuse the group of being anti-Israel and fabricating claims.

[...] French parliament member Meir Habib criticized the decision.

"I am once again astonished at France's obsession with what it defines as the 'occupation.' We French are once again opting to see a perverted version of reality. How is it possible to give a 'human rights' prize to organizations that treat terrorists like freedom fighters?" Habib said.

"Why is there no reference to the human rights of Israelis, who suffer from unceasing terrorism? This prize pushes peace further off and is a mark of Cain on the forehead of the French Republic," Habib said.

Israel's Culture Minister Miri Regev remarked that "This is not a prize; it's a mark of Cain and it officially characterizes B'Tselem's activity as anti-Israeli."
Dror Eydar's also addressed this latest obsession atrocity that does nothing to improve the situation in France and seems more like an attempt to ignore all the issues that have angered the new Yellow Vests movement, which recently had a victory in getting the fuel tax plan cancelled. Nigel Farage already rightly condemned Macron, making a point that he was only virtue-signaling, and that's more or less the case here too. It's just another example of how he's writing himself down in history as one of the worst politicians around.

Merkel tried to stop embassy transfers to Jerusalem for the sake of the obscene Iran deal

More disturbing information's come out demonstrating how Germany is still leaning towards evil:
The founding director of the European Coalition for Israel in Brussels, Tomas Sandell, announced in a shocking video message on Thursday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel waged a campaign to prevent central and eastern European countries from moving their capitals to Jerusalem to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

Sandell said a Jerusalem Post exclusive report in November that Merkel called Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis, to convince him to not relocate his country’s embassy to Jerusalem, prompted Sandell to go public.

Speaking from the European parliament, Sandell said, “What we have found out, something I heard for quite some time already, from central and eastern European countries that would have an inclination to move their embassy to Jerusalem, this is the natural thing for them to do, is that they have received phone calls from Berlin, from Angela Merkel, the chancellor. Basically, this cannot happen under any circumstances.”

“I have spoken to many Germans these last few days in Brussels,” he said. “They are not aware of this, and all of them would be shocked that all of the countries in the European Union today would want to block an embassy move to Jerusalem, not only for your own country, but for other countries that have the conviction [that] this is the right thing to do, the only country to do would be Germany. This is a big shock.”

He added “This is something unprecedented. This is not the Germany we once knew. This is not even the Angela Merkel we once knew when she was elected.”
Honestly, I don't think anybody really knew her at all. Nor should it be a shock. It's just an example of a country that's done little or nothing to prove they could redeem themselves properly after all damage they caused the world. Even Japan did far better in redeeming themselves after WW2. Germany, by contrast, is not proving their ability to show they understand the difference between good and evil, seeing how they've already long stuffed the country with Islamofascists and now it's taking its toll very heavily.

Bush Senior was bad for Israel

Former US president George H.W. Bush died this past week, and predictably, there was a lot of whitewashing of his exact records on foreign policy, which includes his atrocious conduct towards Israel, as well as that of his son, Dubya:
“Go to hell.” That’s what George W. answered a reporter, when questioned about what he planned to tell the Israelis, as he was about to leave on his 1998 Middle East trip. Was he joking? Let’s remember, George W. previously had said in 1993, “heaven is open only to those who accept Jesus Christ,” while discussing his decision to become “born again,” as reported in the Houston Post at the time.

And let’s not forget his heavy campaigning in Michigan (home of the largest Arab-American community) before the 2000 election, his family’s oil interests, and deep ties with the Arab community in America and the Middle East. Then, there was George W’s open support for a Palestinian state during his presidency, the first American president to come out of the closet on the issue.

As the saying goes, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

So, after a cursory look at George W. Bush’s attitudes to Jews, and Israel, let’s look at his recently deceased father, George H.W. Bush, his friends and family.

Well, for starters, there’s the company H.W. kept, for example James Baker who said, “F*** the Jews, they didn’t vote for us anyways.” James Baker was George H.W. Bush’s Secretary of State.

Why didn’t H.W. criticize Baker’s statement?

And H.W. let Baker publicly berate Israeli PM Yitzhak Shamir, “When you’re serious about peace, call us,” giving the number for the White House switchboard. Later, as a friend of the family, he acted as a political advisor to Jeb Bush, when he ran for governor in Florida.

George H.W. Bush will go down in Jewish History as the American president who forced Israel into a subservient position and endangered millions of Jews.

During the 1991 Gulf War, Shamir wanted the communication codes, so that Israeli pilots could contact their American counterparts, and avoid a friendly fire scenario. Bush refused, forcing Shamir’s hand, not to respond to Saddam Hussein’s scud missile fire on Israel. Bush sent patriot missiles, and insisted that Israel let America take care of it. That may be the main turning point, in the Israeli mentality, from “we fight our own wars,” to a growing sense of dependence on Uncle Sam.
Bush Sr. damaged morale by acting as though literally nobody should even think about offering altruistic aid to the USA, as though the country could literally handle everything unquestioned, and may have even damaged the USA's ability to manage some subjects properly too.
As the late Rabbi Meir Kahane quipped, “Once we were people who had faith in the burning bush, and now we depend upon George Bush?”

H.W. also pushed off an Israeli $10 billion aid request for loan guarantees, to help settle the million plus Soviet Jewish refugees flooding Israel, after the fall of the Iron Curtain. He insisted Israel stop building “settlements,” and extorted from Shamir, an agreement that Israel would participate in the 1991 Madrid “peace” Conference. Which led to the Oslo Process, the Palestinian Authority, Arafat’s return, and the Death Machine, Israelis suffer with today. After a more cooperative prime minister was elected in Israel in 1992, Yitzhak Rabin, the loan guarantees went through.
Now that too was all an utter abomination, and brought us down very low as a result.

There's also Prescott Bush's historical record to consider, which isn't all that different from Henry Ford's:
But the George HW’s apple didn’t fall far either…

The accusations against HW’s father, Sen. Prescott Bush, go well beyond dislike for Jews and discriminatory practices that were typical of New England WASP culture back then. It seems his father was involved with Hitler’s financiers in the later 1920s and 1930s.

Prescott Bush was co-founder and a director of at a New York bank, Union Banking Corp. (UBC), where German businessmen who supported the Nazis, stashed away millions. According to documents from the US National Archives made public in 2003, Bush was still a director at the bank, when its assets were frozen under the Trading With the Enemy Act in 1942.

It seems, the UBC was not so much a “bank” at all, but a “clearing house” for the many assets and enterprises, of German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, who later admitted to his role, in helping to finance the Third Reich.

The documents also reveal that Prescott Bush worked for, and was later a partner in, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH). By the late 1930s, both BBH, which claimed to be the world's largest private investment bank, and UBC, had bought and shipped millions of dollars of gold, fuel, steel, coal and US treasury bonds to Nazi Germany, feeding and financing Hitler’s military build-up.
Yep, the Bush family's got quite a history alright. One that serves as an embarrassment to conservatives everywhere, though you could argue Bush Sr. was by no means a real conservative, but rather, an interloper.

This is why I can't feel sorry Bush Sr's no longer here, as he may have hurt the USA just as much as Israel back in the early 90s. There's certainly a reason why he only served one term, and it's a shame Clinton had to be the one to succeed him, as he made things much worse.

Jerusalem police stop illegal wedding of 13 year old girl in Mea Shearim

A Haredi clan tried to arrange an illegal underaged marriage in the enclave of Mea Shearim, and authorities thankfully ground it to a halt:
Police halted a wedding between two minors Thursday in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood.

Officers detained two women and four minors in a raid on the roof of a building in the neighborhood where the wedding was taking place.

Among those taken to a police station were the 13-year-old bride-to-be, who police said was reported missing by her father two months ago.

“The suspicion is that the mother hid [the daughter] until the date of the wedding,” police said in a statement Friday.

The mother is being questioned on suspicion of violating a legal order and other unspecified offenses. Police said their report was given to welfare officials.
Reportedly, the near-groom is 16, making him underaged as well. At least one photo I've seen suggests this could involve the "taliban women" cult wearing burkas, which is why this crime is all the more horrific. Both youngsters should be distanced from these creeps and if they need custodians, they shouldn't have to be Haredis, but just ordinary folks.

Saudis checkmate themselves for barring Israelis from chess competition

Although there have been ties forming between Israel and Saudi Arabia lately, the latter still won't allow entry to Israelis, and so, a chess tournament's been cancelled there:
The World Chess Federation has barred Saudi Arabia from hosting the next world championship because it won’t let Israelis enter the country to participate.

Despite the covertly warming of diplomatic relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom continues to bar Israelis from entering the country.

Earlier this month, two Israeli nationals petitioned the international chess governing body, fighting the discrimination they faced when prevented from taking part in a chess tournament in Saudi Arabia last year because of their nationality.

Riyadh has now been stripped of the competition, which is likely to be moved to Russia.
And Russia, in all due fairness, is more or less a better place to hold such a tournament than in a country where women still suffer the terrible experience of oppression. That's another reason not to give Saudi Arabia the chance to host the current tournaments.

Simply put, by continuing their anti-Jewish discrimination, the Saudis have moved their chess pieces into a checkmated position.

More news on the subject here.
