Turkey's War Against Israel, Fighting Our Enemies on All Fronts

Turkey is no friend of Israel.  We should be wary of them, just like we should be of Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and lots of other nearby Muslim neighbors.  They're the main backers of the anti-Israel pro-Gaza flotilla, the purpose of which was not to bring humanitarian aid but to push Israel into an awkward diplomatic corner.

I'm very glad that our Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu returned home rather than participating in the command performance in the White House.  His speech was impressive, hate boat, not love boat.  But I wonder if he sent strict orders to the IBA Chanel One (and other Israeli television stations) news editors to stop referring to the international pro-Arab terrorist demonstrators on the flotilla as פעילי שלום pi'ilei shalom, peace activists.  All those clever words don't mean much when the Israeli Leftist media continues to brainwash the Israeli public.

As violent in action as the flotilla passengers were, their propaganda words and terms were well-chosen to paint themselves as idealistic heroes and us as cruel, heartless and violent.  Israel must wake up and put as much effort and expertise into the propaganda war, starting at home and with the international Jewish nation, as we do in our military.

If Netanyahu is really serious, Israel must investigate the groups that the New Israel Fund has been supporting and mentoring.  Many of those NIF-supported groups radically endanger the existence and challenge the legitimacy of the State of Israel.

Bibi, it's not enough to make pretty speeches with clever terms.  There's real work to be done to defend our country!

Yesha Rabbis: Flotilla Incident Start of Gog and Magog

Reported: 16:14 PM - Jun/03/10

The Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria issued a statement Thursday in which it said that the results of Israel's interception of a flotilla trying to break the naval blockade of Gaza "place us at the beginning of the Gog and Magog process where the world is against us, but whose end orders the third and final redemption," according to the Kol Rinah news service. The reference is to the book of Ezekiel 38:18-39:16, read on the intermediate Sabbath of Sukkot (Tabernacles), which describes a war that will precede the final redemption.

The statement continued, "Secular Zionism always aspired that we not be 'a people alone among the peoples', but the legitimacy of our people is not derived from the nations of the world and their hateful traditions, rather from the Torah of Israel which teaches us, "The people will live alone and will not take other peoples into consideration." The council blessed the soldiers and called for the unity of an emergency government that will bring about promises of salvation for the people.
