Netanyahu fires defense minister Galant

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Yoav Galant as his defense minister, because the latter decided to cause trouble for judicial reform, and even before that, he was underminining the army:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant following his opposition to the judicial reform, it was announced on Sunday evening.

Gallant made a dramatic declaration on Saturday evening calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt the judicial overhaul long enough to more deeply engage in negotiations with others to reach a compromise.

The prime minister told Gallant he lost his trust in the defense minister after he "went behind the government's back" on Saturday evening, while Netanyahu was visiting the United Kingdom. Netanyahu now has 48 hours to appoint a defense minister, as per Maariv.
It's for the best Galant goes out. It'll remain to be seen who the next defense minister will be. But Galant's decidedly no loss, and won't be missed in the role. If he tries to hurt the government further even outside the cabinet proper, that'll be wrong, so let's hope Galant will respect and come to terms with his dismissal.

Update: Ruthie Blum explains how Galant hurt military order by allowing air force reservists to take political stances at the expense of the country's security.

Far-left activists want to paralyze Israel, all over judicial reform

The leftists in Israel continue to disappoint, with announcements of more intended chaos:
The leaders of the protest against the judicial reform on Friday threatened to hold a “National Paralysis Week” next week which, they said, will include actions against of resistance against members of the coalition and a huge demonstration in Jerusalem.

"In the face of Netanyahu's attempt next week to carry out a hostile takeover of the Supreme Court, and to appoint lackey judges, in flagrant violation of the conflict of interest agreement, the ruling of the Supreme Court, and the order of the Attorney General, the leaders of the opposition to the dictatorship are announcing this evening that next week will be a 'National Paralysis Week,'" they said in a statement.
What they're really saying is that they don't want leftists in the Knesset to vote on appointment of judges either, and worst of all, they want everyone to suffer over what's otherwise peanuts. Such people have no place in this country, and should pack their bags already for parts unknown.

Update: Dror Eydar's addressed the issue, and reminds everyone that the judiciary goes by a system of being comprised of unelected oligarchs. That's why the system has to be altered.

Leifer case goes before Australian jury

The case of Haredi child molestor Malka Leifer has headed for the jury's verdict:
An Australian jury retired on Wednesday to consider their verdicts following the six-week trial of a former principal of a Melbourne ultra-Orthodox Jewish girls' school accused of molesting three sisters.

Malka Leifer, 56, has pleaded not guilty in the Victoria state County Court to 27 sexual offenses that were allegedly committed at the Adass Israel School, where she was head of religion and later principal, and at her Melbourne home and at school camps in the rural Victorian towns of Blampied and Rawson between 2003 and 2007.

Prosecutor Justin Lewis had asked the 12 jurors to consider that Leifer, a Tel Aviv-born mother of eight, showed sexual interest in the girls when they were teenage students at the school and later when they became student teachers there. He alleged that Leifer engaged in sexual activities with them and took advantage of their vulnerability and ignorance in sexual matters, and her position of authority.

The sisters had an isolated upbringing in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community and received no sexual education, the court heard. They were aged around 12, 14, and 16 when Leifer arrived at the school from Israel in 2001.
I'll never forgive the Haredi clan they grew up in for the mental abuse they practically subjected the girls to when they were young. All sane people Down Under, no matter their background, should look in disgust at such insularists for the harm and embarrassment the clan truly is. It remains to be seen if Leifer will be convicted, and what kind of sentence she'll get. Let's hope the jury recognizes the guilt she clearly bears. And she even had the gall to plead "not guilty"? That only compounds the poor image she's achieved. One must wonder, however, if authorities would deal properly with a male offender of a similar background. We must hope they will.

RINOs who refuse to oppose transsexual insanity don't belong in office

An important point made by Jordan Boyd when it comes to Republican governors in the USA who refuse to oppose transsexual demolishing of society:
Wyoming is technically one of the reddest states in the nation because the GOP holds the offices of governor, secretary of state, attorney general, and both chambers of the state legislature, but you wouldn’t know that by the actions of the politicians they elect.

Just this week, Republican Gov. Mark Gordon refused to sign a bill that prohibits males in costume from invading female sports. Gordon claimed the legislation, which “is overly draconian, is discriminatory without attention to individual circumstances or mitigating factors, and pays little attention to fundamental principles of equality.”
Some people may have heard of the phrase "bleeding heart liberal" in the past, and in Mr. Gordon's case, he could be called a "bleeding heart conservative", who believes we must truly feel sorry for these "misunderstood" followers of punk subculture who believe their protected class status literally gives them the right to rob real women of success in sports and other things. And who, just as regrettably, apparently despise their own biological sex. Which, now that I think of it, is similar in some ways to self-hating Jews.
The bill eventually became law without Gordon’s signature and blessing, but the Republican’s hostility towards policies that most of his constituents and most of the nation support should immediately disqualify him from representing red voters.

[...] The GOP, specifically, is more than capable of outlawing the butchering of children for profit and punishing propagandists who tout maiming as a solution instead of a problem. Republicans control the state legislatures and the governor’s mansion in 22 states. Yet, only 19 of those states have taken action to keep boys from competing in girls’ sports. Only eight of those states have agreed to ban the castration and mutilation of minors.

If there was ever a time to deem passivity and investigation alone not enough, it’s now. If Republicans can’t sign the simplest of bills to keep biological males from invading female spaces or keep minor children from irreversible mutilation, they are not even developed enough to consent to in the first place, they don’t deserve to hold office.
Indeed, no. These representatives should practically be recalled and/or voted out now. What business do they have being in politics if this is how they're running the store? Gordon should set a better example by voluntarily resigning now, and apologizing to all the innocent members of the fairer sex he's let down in the process.

Texas university president recognizes how drag performance is a form of blackface

The head of a university in Texas realizes why drag shows are offensive to women, and another form of blackface:
A public university president canceled a student drag show on campus Tuesday, and gave a fierce rebuke of drag.

Walter Wendler, the president of West Texas A&M University, canceled the drag show on Tuesday. He also sent an email to students explaining the reasoning behind his decision, which he also shared as a post on his blog. In the message, Wendler blasted drag shows, saying that they are degrading and misogynistic by their very nature.

“West Texas A&M University will not host a drag show on campus,” Wendler stated in the post, entitled, “A Harmless Drag Show? No Such Thing.” The event was scheduled for March 31 and intended to raise money for The Trevor Project, and LGBTQ advocacy group which claims to work to prevent suicide among LGBTQ youth. Wendler said the cause was noble, and that it is a tragedy for any person to consider self-harm.

Wendler went on, saying that each and every person has human dignity, and that idea is foundational to American Life; and that drag shows violate that dignity. “Does a drag show preserve a single thread of human dignity? I think not,” he wrote. “As a performance exaggerating aspects of womanhood (sexuality, femininity, gender), drag shows stereotype women in cartoon-like extremes for the amusement of others and discriminate against womanhood. Any event which diminishes an individual or group through such representation is wrong.”

“WT endeavors to treat all people equally,” the university president continued. “Drag shows are derisive, divisive and demoralizing misogyny, no matter the stated intent. Such conduct runs counter to the purpose of WT. A person or group should not attempt to elevate itself or a cause by mocking another person or group. As a university president, I would not support ‘blackface’ performances on our campus, even if told the performance is a form of free speech or intended as humor. It is wrong. I do not support any show, performance or artistic expression which denigrates others—in this case, women—for any reason.”
While helping prevent suicide is noble, running performances at the expense of women would only tarnish the goal. The same can be said if it were a racial blackface performance. It's high time for all these "progressives" to recognize that demeaning women is just as wrong and offensive as racism, and it'd do a lot of good if these drag shows were to be curbed, just like blackface performance was decades ago.

Concern raised by Israeli government members over possibility of political murder occurring

The valid worries were raised after minister Avi Dichter was assaulted by a left-wing protestor at the Israeli airport:
Government minister and MK Avi Dichter was struck in the head by a flag-wielding protester Thursday morning as he walked to his car, surrounded by security personnel.

Dichter continued walking and entered the vehicle without further incident — but the attack on a government minister and former head of the Shin Bet by the anarchists was shocking to many.

Israel Police arrested the attacker — a woman — shortly after.

“I strongly condemn the attack on Minister Avi Dichter by a left-wing activist and demand that the leaders of the opposition immediately stop the anarchy, violence and incitement towards elected officials,”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a fierce statement.

“I demand that the police and the prosecutor’s office take immediate and firm action against anyone who lays hands on elected officials, before it is too late,” he said.
Following this, another minister made a vital point:
Minister Ophir Akunis (Likud) added, "I warned over a month ago that this could end with political murder. It's closer than ever before. The silence of the leaders of the opposition and the left-wing is dangerous; it gives a green light to the violence of left-wing protesters to plunge Israel into anarchy."
Exactly. With the worst part being that's exactly what they - and anti-Israelists outside the country - want. The police should not be allowing these demonstrations if that's all they're going to amount to.

Sara Netanyahu's also condemned the incidents:
Sara Netanyahu called on the leaders of the opposition parties to denounce the violence against government ministers, especially the attack on Agriculture Minister Avi Dichter earlier on Thursday.

She added that opposition leaders had not condemned the protesters who had besieged her in a hair salon in Tel Aviv a few weeks ago.

"In recent weeks, threats have been heard and published to assassinate the Prime Minister, myself and our sons, government ministers such as Yariv Levin and Itamar Ben-Gvir, and other public representatives. I strongly condemn these incitement and violent attacks, which have no place among us," she added.
This certainly is illuminating as to where leftists in this country are going now. It's an utter embarrassment, and is only causing severe damage even to leftists themselves. The left-wing opposition in the Knesset doesn't belong there and should be voted out.

Miri Regev didn't like visiting Dubai

Here's some fascinating news about a government minister who originally visited the UAE about 5 years ago, before the Abraham Accords were developed, and it turns out she didn't enjoy the trip:
Transportation Minister Miri Regev stated that she did not like Dubai during her visit and that she would not go back to the city in the United Arab Emirates.

“I’ve been to Dubai. I won’t be going back. I don’t like the place,” Regev said in a speech today (Wednesday. However, she added that "it's amazing to see the roads they have built in six years."
I remember seeing a picture of her wearing an outfit that was almost like a burka when she paid a visit. It makes no difference whether she was visiting a mosque; that was an utter disgrace, and a poor example for women. Does this mean she didn't like that either? Well, I suppose it's better late than never that she'd admit it.

From what I've heard about Dubai, it's still got a ways to go before one can consider it truly a place to look forward to visiting. They'll have to abandon Islam to really prove themselves ready for the free world. At least the highways they've built there do admittedly have significance.

What a former Haredi now does working in fashion design, and what another Israeli designer unfortunately thinks is great

A former Haredi citizen of Bnei Brak who suffered the tragedy of sexual assault now works in fashion designing:
Israeli designer Aharon Genish's fashion show on Monday was one of the most unforgettable events in Israel's fashion scene in recent years, and undoubtedly the most spectacular show of this week's runway at Kornit Fashion Week in Tel Aviv.

[...] Last year, he made his debut in the "Upcoming" fashion show with his collection titled "You Will Not Shut Up," captivating the audience with pieces that drew from his own personal experiences, including glimpses into two traumatic sexual assault events he endured during his childhood."

Genish grew up in the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak where he sought ways to explore the world outside the confines of the yeshiva and cheder.

He was left with a question about his place in the world, and eventually found it through freedom, art, and creativity.

He transforms conservative clothing items from different historical periods into edgy and distinctive fashion pieces, imbuing them with a poetic and romantic quality while still paying homage to their historical and traditional significance.
From what I've seen of his designs, they seem to be anything but "modest", and he shouldn't have to restrict himself to the kind of mindset the Haredis go by. That's how to maintain true creativity.

But since we're on the subject, there's also a most disgusting report over here about Israeli designers who're making "gender fluid" fashions:
Gender inclusivity in Israeli clothing is not new. However, while kibbutz and army uniforms were once a great equalizer, today’s designers of gender-fluid fashions are on a mission to allow people to express their individuality.

Three big names in this field are Hed Mayner – dubbed Paris Fashion Week 2023’s “hidden gem” on Instagram – along with David Weksler and Liel Bomberg from Ultra.

[...] “There is still a long way to go yet for people to be liberated from old norms and be more free and open with how they dress,” says Weksler, who will open Tel Aviv Fashion Week on March 19 with his collection.

Ever since his school days he felt an “inner urge” to deal with “the pressing issues of gender and masculinity and all the changes and challenges it has been facing in these past years.”

After studying at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Ramat Gan, Weksler attended Central St. Martin’s design school in London, where he was exposed to a specific way of perceiving Israelis – men in particular.

“I felt that some light should be shed on that topic. I wanted to showcase the beauty and the uniqueness of the Israeli men I knew, in a way that was truer to who and what they are.”

A former menswear designer, Weksler has been drawn to make what he calls “gender free” clothing for the past three years.

It is homoerotic and emotionally charged, but it is not feminized, not necessarily gentle in the way that we usually perceive something that is not typically masculine. Things are changing, and I want my work to be representative of that.”
Somehow, I can't help feel his idea of "unfeminized" clothing was deliberate, out of contempt for the fairer sex. In any event, this is certainly illuminating of an Israeli leftist who sadly believes he simply has to follow the ultra-leftist "trends" of wokeness, and insult people's intellects with clothing that's insulting to gender.

Let's put it this way. If he wants to conceive outfits similar to Scottish kilts, that's fine. Same if he wants to design outfits that could evoke what men in the Biblical era wore, which wasn't trousers. Those particular forms of clothing weren't made for the sake of political agendas. But to make clothing deliberately for the sake of an agenda that believes distinction between sexes should be blurred, and that identity should be denied, is a disgrace. Sometimes, I think this country's been far too influenced by the identity politics of the USA's leftists, and this is certainly one such example, whose products should not be bought.

USA Catholic bishops ban sex reassignment surgeries

It looks like the Catholic community in the USA is taking important steps, and following similar beliefs in Judaism that it's wrong to mutilate the human body for the sake of transsexuality, among other ideologies:
The United States Catholic Bishops have issued guidelines banning surgical and chemical intervention aimed at exchanging “the sex characteristics of a patient’s body for those of the opposite sex.”

In a March 20 “Doctrinal Note,” the bishops rule out certain forms of medical interventions in Catholic healthcare institutions such as puberty blockers and sex reassignment surgery, insisting that the[y] do not promote the authentic good of the human person but are, in fact, injurious.
Just like some rabbis have made clear, as noted previously. And they're right. It's bad enough the National Socialists of Germany during WW2 carried out horrific experiments on Jews, Gypsies and anyone else they hated. What's been occurring in the past decade is a horrifying legitimization of something no innocent children and women should have to suffer.

If New York's district attorney indicts Donald Trump, it'll be a disaster

New York's DA Alvin Bragg, who was brought to power by George Soros' influence, appears willing to prosecute Trump over peanuts, in what's now a classic left-wing tactic:
National Review Editor-in-chief Rich Lowry — no fan of former President Donald Trump — argued in a piece on Monday that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is embarking on a “dangerous path” if he indicts Trump as expected.

In a piece titled “Arrest and Counter-Arrest Is No Way to Run a Republic,” Lowry writes:

Alvin Bragg is embarking on a dangerous path.

Alvin Bragg is ready to go there — to test what happens when a presidential candidate with an intense following, keenly attuned to potentially unfair treatment, is subjected to a nakedly political prosecution.

This is an experiment no reasonable person should want to undertake. It’s not that presidents and former presidents are above the law, but the old norm of forbearance is appropriate.

Lowry argued that Bragg’s case amounted to an “adventurous” prosecution based on a “tenuous” legal theory that was not worth the risk to the law-enforcement system and the danger of setting off politicized arrests and counter-arrests by politicians.
And let's consider that Bragg's done nothing to combat crime on the streets of NY properly, one more reason why this banana-republic tactic is hypocritically offense.

Interestingly, Mexico's president Andres Obrador, despite being a leftist himself, seems to understand what's wrong with all this:
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Tuesday defended Donald Trump, saying a potential indictment of the former president could be a move to prevent him from seeking reelection.

"Right now, former President Trump is declaring that they are going to arrest him," López Obrador, who is also known by his initials AMLO, said during a press conference. "If that were the would be so that his name doesn't appear on the ballot."
He's certainly realized what this is really all about. Also, as noted here:
AMLO also pointed out that the U.S., which blew up the Nordstream II pipeline, had no business lecturing others on rule of law.
This point can also apply to how Biden's approached Israel on the topic of judicial reform. Nevertheless, it's a shame Obrador's done nothing proper to defeat all the drug mafia cartels that've turned Mexico into a nightmare, and if he's voted out by the Mexican public in their next election, it'll be for the best.

2005 disengagement law repealed

Steps have been taken to mend an injustice from nearly 2 decades ago, which the since reviled traitor Ariel Sharon engineered:
The Knesset on Tuesday voted 31-18 to repeal articles of the 2005 Gaza Disengagement Law banning Israelis from entering and residing in four communities in northern Samaria.

The Gaza disengagement led to the destruction and evacuation of the Israeli communities of Sa-Nur, Homesh, Ganim and Kadim in northern Samaria, as well as 21 communities in the Gaza Strip.

In addition to rolling back the articles (23-27) banning movement into and out of, and residence in, northern Samaria, the amendment stipulates that Article 28, which canceled rights regarding real estate in vacated territory, will not apply to rights established there starting from the date of the bill's approval.

"There is no longer any justification to prevent Israelis from entering and staying in the evacuated territory in northern Samaria, and therefore it is proposed to state that these sections [of the disengagement law] will no longer apply to the evacuated territory," reads the introductory text to the bill.

The bill's passage erases "to some extent" the "the stain on the garment of the State of Israel" left by the disengagement, it continues.
Those who voted in favor of repealing the offensive law did the right thing. But we can't rest on laurels, as Limor Son-Har Melech noted. There's still much more that needs to be done to mend the damage.

Bezalel Smotrich makes a crucial point regarding history

Finance minister Smotrich, in a special journey to France, made clear there's no such thing as a "palestinian Arab/Islamic people", and that the only Palestinians in existence are Jews/Israelis like himself:
Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich dismissed the existence of a Palestinian people in a speech he delivered in Paris on Sunday.

“There is no such thing as Palestinians because there is no such thing as a Palestinian people,” said Smotrich who heads the Religious Zionist Party.

“Who are the [real] Palestinians? I am Palestinian,” he said.

He recalled his family’s 13 generations in the Land of Israel, mentioning his grandmother who had been born in the northern border town of Metula over a hundred years ago before the creation of the state.

His ancestors and his grandmother were “Palestinians,”
he said.

Before 1948, the territory that now encompasses the modern state of Israel had been called Palestine. The Romans used that term to refer to that territory after they conquered the ancient state of Israel.
Exactly. That's the history nobody in the USA is willing to teach. It's time to start making this point much clearer in the future.

Antisemitism and anti-Israelism in LGBT movements

This article is from 3 years ago, but still very relevant for consideration today, since, while it's surely overlooked by the PC crowd, the LGBT movement in countries like the USA have a considerable amount of anti-Israeli supporters who couldn't care less about homophobia and transphobia advocated by Islam:
The first time I heard the word “pinkwashing” was when I mentioned to a friend that I was interested in attending the Tel Aviv Pride Parade last summer. My friend supported me but warned me against posting any photos of the parade online, as I would be accused of pinkwashing. I asked her what she meant. “Pinkwashing?” she said. “When Zionists pretend that Israel is the pinnacle of human rights because of how they treat gays? To distract from the way they treat Palestinians?”

This was the first time I heard this term, but it certainly was not the last.

The “anti-pinkwashing” movement is gaining traction in the gay community. My friend was correct in her description: Its mission is to end government-sponsored exploitation of gay constituents so as not to distract from inexcusable corruption or wrongdoing. On paper, the movement seeks to separate nationalism from queer liberation and to honor the voices of queer, oppressed people worldwide. But in reality, the movement tethers the identities of gay Israelis to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and undermines their autonomy simply because they are citizens of the Jewish state. To the devout gay rights activist, any display of Jewish gay pride is now conditional; it must totally and officially distance itself from the Jewish state to be valid.

Consider the controversy surrounding the 2019 D.C. Dyke March. This event was a unique opportunity for the queer women of Washington to display their solidarity with one another, but under one condition: Jewish queer women could not display any “nationalist iconography,” meaning the Star of David, if it resembled an Israeli flag. At a similar event in Chicago, Jewish women carrying rainbow Star of David flags were forced to leave. In New York, Israelis participating in a gay pride parade were surrounded by protesters shouting, “No pride in apartheid!”

Imagine if you were an American marching in a European pride parade and suddenly you were isolated from the crowd and intimidated with chants of “Screw Donald Trump!” simply because of your nationality. That, of course, wouldn’t happen. The queer liberation movement does not hold a queer person responsible for the actions of their government — unless of course, they are Israeli.

To make matters worse, more and more LGBTQ organizations are openly supporting boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) resolutions. How can this movement, which emphasizes the rights and dignity of all people, support BDS, an initiative that constantly discriminates against both Israeli and Diaspora Jews in academic, artistic and political spaces?

The antagonism is finding its way to universities. An organization on my campus at George Washington University that markets itself as “here to work toward building a happy, healthy and equal environment for the LGBTQ community” published a political platform of its own in 2019. The organization wrote, “In recognition of the struggles of LGBTQ+ Palestinians living under occupation, of the fact that settler-colonialism will always hurt our LGBTQ+ siblings, and in recognition of the pinkwashing done by the Israeli state to justify occupation requires combatting by the LGBTQ+ community, we commit ourselves to the cause of anti-settler colonialism. Additionally, we refuse to endorse or work with organizations that stand in support of settler-colonialism states.”

It’s important to note that nowhere in the platform is there any other condemnation of a foreign power or its government’s policy. The only regional conflict recognized is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. After I filed a complaint with the university, the platform was amended to remove specific mention of Palestinians and Israel. Regardless, this organization will refrain from partnering with Jewish groups if they have any connection to the Jewish state.
The writer is homosexual himself, and learned the hard way about LGBTQ-sponsored antisemitism. Whose advocates have no genuine interest in the plight of homosexuals under Islam, because they only exist to devastate western societies and corrupt youth from those areas, basically encouraging them to go the OSR route. One more reason it's a shame if the man continues to support all this "pride" nonsense. He really should stop and learn how to better relate to women, and even bear children for them.

Another 2 Israelis shot near Huwara

Bad news as another 2 Israeli citizen were shot near Huwara, the same spot where 2 victims were murdered just weeks ago:
A terrorist shooting attack was reported near the Arab town of Huwara in Samaria Sunday afternoon, at the site of another terrorist shooting attack last month.

Two people were wounded in the attack, one of whom is said to be in serious condition with a head wound, while the other was treated for shock

According to initial reports, the victims are a husband and wife, both in their 30s. The couple's children were not wounded in the attack.

Witnesses say the terrorist walked up to the victims' vehicle and opened fire at point-blank range with a Carlo-style submachine gun before fleeing the scene, dropping his gun on the way.

According to MK Tzvi Sukkot (Religious Zionist Party), the victim, an [acquaintance] of the MK, managed to return fire despite being shot in the head, wounding the terrorist.

Emergency first responders from Hatzalah Without Borders, Magen David Adom (MDA), and an IDF medical team were dispatched to the scene, treating the victims before evacuating them to the hospital via ambulance.
The husband, who was lucky to have shot the attacker, had USA citizenship:
The victims, both dual American-Israeli citizens, are 44-year-old David Stern and his wife, 37-year-old Rachel Stern, residents of the Givat Ronen neighborhood in the town of Itamar, north of Huwara, the site of the attack.

David Stern, a Krav Maga self-defense instructor and trainer for first-responder security teams, was shot in the head Sunday afternoon when an Arab terrorist approached his car and opened fire at point-blank range with a Carlo-style submachine gun.

The bullet apparently grazed Stern’s skull, and was deflected into his arm.

After being evacuated to the Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikva in serious condition, hospital officials said Stern is now listed in moderate-to-serious condition, adding that he is not in life-threatening danger.

Rachel Stern was treated for shock after the shooting, while the couple's children who were present in the car at the time of the attack were not injured.
The town will have to be put under a form of curfew and the army will have to search for illegal weapons hidden there. Huwara's Islamofascists definitely gave it a bad name.
