Israeli Arabs are Failing Loyalty Test

Yahoo news has an important headline this morning:
Surge in violence tests loyalties of Israeli Arabs

From what I can see, it's very clear that they are demonstrating their support for the Arab terrorists aka Palestinians sic.

I agree with Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked's attempt to cancel citizenship and residency permits for Israeli Arabs involved in terrorism against Jews.
Minister Shaked Launches Effort to Revoke Arab Terrorists’ Citizenship( Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked (Bayit Yehudi) told Israel Radio Thursday morning that she has begun a process of revoking the citizenship and residency of Arab terrorists. She said that the families of terrorists who have been involved in or supported the terror actions will be deprived of residency, terrorist property will be confiscated and their homes will be destroyed. (Jewish Press)
To be honest, I highly doubt that the vast majority of Israeli Arabs would want to live under Arab aka Palestinian sic rule. And from my contacts with Arabs --remember that I work with Arabs in Yafiz-Rami Levy, Sha'ar Binyamin- I have no doubt that most who live in the PA-Palestinian Authority would prefer full Israeli sovereignty. Of course, they can't admit it publicly, but otherwise why would they consider working for Rami Levy and shopping in his stores to be preferable to their local Arab businesses?

And I just can't understand why that rabid and unabashedly pro-terrorist MK Hanin Zoabi hasn't been jailed and stripped of all rights!

MK Zoabi: Enough Lone Attacks, Time for Mass Intifada

Jewish teenagers have jailed on suspicion of supporting "price tag" revenge attacks on Arabs without any proof. So why should Hanin Zoabi be immune and given opportunities to publicly encourage the murder of innocent Jews?

Israeli Arabs should be given a choice to either be loyal, law-abiding Israeli citizens or hand in their Israeli ID's, pack their bags and move to Ramalla, Shechem, Gaza, one of the small villages or another country like Syria, Iraq or Iran. And that should include even those Israeli Arabs in the Knesset. Every single country in the world has conditions for citizenship which must be met or face legal punishment.

Even better would be Israel's declaring full sovereignty over all of the Land it holds, Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley and then dismantle the  PA-Palestinian Authority.

We are a very long way from having peace with our Arab neighbors, and that is because they are far from ready. It will take at least a few generations, because first we must see them promoting a yearning for peace not terror!

The Sudeten Germans betrayed the Czech Republic and worked on behalf of the Nazi Germans to oppress their countrymen.

When Czech statehood was restored in 1945, President Edouard Benes resolved to treat the problem at its root - the Germans had to leave - every one of them, for Germany, with few exceptions.

The Czechs did not want them to endanger their existence a second time.

They were not given a choice in the matter.

If the Arabs cannot abide being Israeli citizens, they must be stripped of their Israeli citizenship and deported.

A country cannot harbor a Fifth Column and a democracy is not a suicide pact.

In the UK the test was if you cheered for your country of origin or for England at cricket. It’s a little more critical here.

Norman, that is a good lesson.
Brian, I like that. As far as I'm concerned the sympathy shown for the enemy by our politicians, academic and media is like cheering the wrong team.

It's not just the Arabs' fault.

*** Just a few weeks ago I read that the Israeli government was still granting CITIZENSHIP to Jerusalem Arabs. The Arabs want those papers not because they love Israel, obviously.

*** The PM was secretly going to surrender the GOLAN before the Arab Spring interrupted his plans. If he had managed to do so and northern Israel was now a war zone, whose fault would it be?

Report: Netanyahu was ready to cede Golan to Assad in 2011

*** FOREIGN SUBVERSIVES, TERRORISTS still welcome in Judea and Samaria

Lee Kaplan: Keep ISM out of Judea and Samaria

The Israeli government knows the ISM is really a terrorist support group and these radicals from the US and EU come specifically to interfere with the IDF. But I don’t see the government doing anything to really prevent this. As Jews are being knifed and run over by cars, why is Israel allowing them to interfere even more with the IDF?

One of my Stop the ISM volunteers managed get photos of ISM volunteers in the 'West Bank' wielding machine guns in the presence of an Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade terrorist. Accomplished liars, the ISM tries to claim the people photographed were rookies who were “tricked” into being photographed with guns. Of course nobody points out the “rookies” were in fact ISM trainers and that the women are dressed up as Jewish settler women when they aren’t Jewish.

David Bedein: GOVT has been HIDING PA FACTS, such as how the PA includes Hamas fighters

When the Israeli security services publicized that Hamas members were nabbed for the recent murders, these sources would not admit that the PSF, the Palestinian Security Forces, armed by the Israeli government, includes Hamas fighters in its ranks.

Meanwhile, the Israel Civil Administration, known as COGAT, provides 800 trucks each day of unchecked merchandise for sale in Gaza, under the title of “humanitarian aid”.

Were COGAT to acknowledge that cement was reaching Hamas enterprises and Hamas run schools, it would be difficult for the Israeli government to explain itself.

NESHER Corporation, the CEMENT czar, accrues profits from Gaza exports. NESHER is the key corporation behind the Portland Trust, the Israel Palestine Chamber of Commerce and the Peres Center for Peace.

Criminology 101 teaches that when a crime is committed, there are those who profit from it...

There's got to be a good reason why Hashem keeps Peres kicking so long, I just don't know it.

Good question. He's a Dorian Gray; isn't he? Jewish theologians would say he's being given chances for teshuva (repentance) or that he's getting all rewards in This Life so in The World to Come he can be totally punished.
