State Funded Terrorism by the Israeli Government

The hollow words of Netanyahu are even more pronounced when we realize his government is in fact funding extremist radical Yeshivas (Jewish religious colleges) in West Bank settlements.

Can you imagine if this were a Muslim country? We wouldn’t hear the end of “state funded terrorism.” (hat tip: T.H. and MrIslamAnswersBack)

Israeli agency urges funding to be cut from extremist settler college

by Donald MacIntyre (The Independent)

Israel’s domestic intelligence agency is urging the government to stop funding a religious college in a Jewish West Bank settlement after warning that its senior rabbis are encouraging students to attack Palestinians.

The intelligence agency, Shin Bet, pressed a month ago for an immediate block on the annual £226,000 grant for the religious college, or yeshiva, in the notoriously extreme settlement of Yitzhar, near Nablus. The Education Ministry has reportedly yet to take a decision despite two meetings with Shin Bet.

Residents of the nearby Palestinian village of Asira El Qbilya say the masked, club-wielding teenage settlers who invaded it last week came from Yitzhar.

The Israeli military disclosed last month that it had issued restraining orders on 12 settlers from the Yitzhar area for “violent and clandestine activity” targeting Palestinians in the West Bank, including endangering lives by “igniting… mosques, vehicles and buildings”.

The head of the Od Yosef Hai yeshiva complex in the settlement, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, has been filmed accompanying students who threw stones at a Palestinian village. Rabbi Shapira is the author of The King’s Torah, a book which suggests that Jewish law on occasion permits the killing of non-Jews.

There was heightened tension in parts of the West Bank last week as Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, submitted his application for UN recognition. A Palestinian was shot dead in Qusra, also near Nablus, by Israeli troops after confronting villagers who gathered in response to a settler invasion. A Jewish settler and his one-year-old son were killed in a car crash near Hebron, which the police say was probably caused by Palestinians throwing stones.

Meanwhile, the US joined Palestinian leaders in condemning Israeli government approval yesterday for the construction of 1,100 new homes in the Jerusalem area settlement of Gilo. It came only days after the international quartet of the US, EU, Russia and the UN urged the parties to “refrain from provocative actions” that might jeopardise future negotiations.

A US State Department official said Washington saw the “continued expansion of settlements” as “corrosive not only to peace efforts and a two-state solution, but to Israel’s future itself”.

    Bachmann blames Arab Spring on Obama’s ‘weakness’

    “I am probably even more concerned about the foreign policy implications because of what Barack Obama has done to the nation,” Bachmann said.

    “Just like Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s didn’t have the back of the Shah of Iran, we saw the Shah fall and the rise of the Ayatollah. And we saw the rise and the beginnings of radical Jihad which have changed this world and changed this nation,” she added.

    “So too under Barack Obama, we saw him put a lot of daylight between our relationship with our ally Israel. And when he called on Israel to retreat to its indefensible 1967 borders, don’t think that message wasn’t lost on Israel’s 26 hostile neighbors,” Bachmann said.

    “You want to know why we have an Arab Spring? Barack Obama has laid the table for an Arab Spring by demonstrating weakness from the United States of America,” she said. “The No. 1 duty of the president is to be the commander-in-chief.”

    McCain: Protesters ‘inspire the world’
    The Arab Spring protests stretched from Algeria in North Africa to Syria in the Middle East. Some led to political instability in nations with longstanding rulers.

    Story: McCain: Libya inspires people in China, Russia, Iran
    Her remarks contrasted with those of senior Republican and former presidential candidate, Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., who is leading a delegation of Republican lawmakers to Libya this week.

    Speaking in Tripoli on Thursday, he said the Arab Spring-inspired uprising in Libya was “inspiring” people in Iran, Syria and “even in Beijing and Moscow.”

    “They continue to inspire the world — and let people know that even the worst dictators can be overthrown and be replaced by freedom and democracy,” McCain said.

    These are the just bullys used the expansionist zionists. The real terrorist threat is from the settlers who are getting trained directly by the military of Israel. Imagine the anti-islamic propoganda if muslim countries turn their population into a military state.

  • Here something I knew was coming: Netherlands block EU agreement on Israeli-Palestine position. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,788835,00.html

    Yes, I knew last year that Dutch foreign policy would change to be fanatically pro-Israel, with all the Lukid Party members that are a part of the PVV and part of Brown Coalition.

    The truth is that Israel as well as Islamophobic crackpots, Geller, Spencer, Horowitz – now OWN the Netherlands – a nation once celebrated for its human rights activism and justice and impartiality.

    FM Rosenthal appears to craft his foreign policy according to crackpot blogs, like Atlas Shrugs and JihadWatch.

    I also said in the past — and this proves is — the Netherlands is an important nation in Europe now, in the fight for human rights, and we need to be concerned about its radicalizing policies and positions. We must stand up to the Netherlands and its radical government and put a stop to this nonsense. The Dutch will cause even greater problems in the future if we fail to realize how much trouble this radical and extremist Brown Coalition will cause in the future!

    If you thought that the USA causing trouble – we now have the Netherlands with even worse potential to cause trouble!

    In the words of Norman Finkelstein, “Israel is a lunatic state.” The government knows it doesn’t have much time left before the entire world denounces its crimes against humanity, so it is trying to cause as much damage and horror as possible. The Nazis did the same thing once they knew the war was lost. They began to indiscriminately shoot and kill people in the death camps, regardless if they were physically fit to work or not. They wanted to take out as many Jews as they could before power was taken from them.
