Israel Guilty as Charged

Of going too easy:

Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich (Yisrael Beytenu) has called on the government to take a much firmer hand with Hamas, just hours before a ceasefire is rumored to go into effect Monday.

Aharonovich made his comments following a “difficult” visit to the Tragerman family, whose four-year-old son Daniel was killed in a mortar attack on Kibbutz Nahal Oz in southern Israel on Friday.

“With a terrorist group you need to deal in a far more violent and harsh way, to defeat it. I have said this already a number of times in the past.”

“What is important to us is to return security to the residents of the State, with an emphasis on the south,” he continued.

Hard to argue with that.

And I don’t dispute this:

Barak Seener, an Associate fellow at Britain’s Royal United Services Institute for Defense and Security Studies, thinks Israel is “choosing not to win” the war in Gaza.

“In general,” he explained, “modern warfare is not geared towards protracted conflict, and thus Israel should have initially gone in harder. This was prevented by a lack of extensive sound intelligence of tunnels and the whereabouts of Hamas operatives. Israel’s diplomatic standing will decline as Europe does not anymore understand the power of ideologies, let alone a genocidal, zero sum game Islamist and suicidal ideology.”

“There is so much that has been reported in Israeli news outlets but has not been reported in European outlets. This includes Hamas executing Fatah members, children digging tunnels, concrete being redirected to building tunnels rather than hospitals and schools, the affluence of Hamas’s leadership who divert funding to the Palestinians to their own personal accounts, even pictures of tunnels were reported by the Washington Post a few weeks earlier than Reuters.

“The main issue is that Israel should take exactly the same initiatives (not more) as Allied forces have done in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. While it is natural that Israel should seek to avoid civilian casualties, its priority is to its own civilians and soldiers.

I dispute only this: “Europe does not anymore understand the power of ideologies, let alone a genocidal, zero sum game Islamist and suicidal ideology.”

Europe understands all too well: James Foley’s executioner was British. Europeans are just praying that the Islamist threat will spare them if they ignore or submit to it. Which is how Europe deals with most threats. Israel does not have that “luxury”.

PS: If there is such a thing as a “just war”—and I believe there is—the irrevocable defeat of Hamass would have to qualify. Not a truce or a stalemate (during which Hamass would merely rearm), but an unqualified, unconditional defeat. Hamass has not amended its genocidal charter; it has not softened its warcraft. Indeed, to indiscriminate shelling of Israeli civilians they have now added human shields to their tactics. No mosque, school, or hospital is safe from their militarization. Where is the morality in leaving even a trace of such a regime? The “war crime” is in leaving it intact.

UN-Sponsored Terror

The UN has brought cholera to Haiti, sexual predation to Africa (and Bosnia) (and Cambodia) (and Haiti), genocide to Africa (and Bosnia)—and now dead four-year-olds to Israel:

The mortar shell that killed a four-year-old boy in the Sha’ar Hanegev region this evening was fired from a school run by UNRWA in the Shejajiah neighborhood in Gaza City, security officials say, according to Ynet.

I don’t get why Hamass is still standing. Why did this boy have to die? Why does any Israeli have to die?

More of this, please.

Condolences

Bloodthirstan extends its deepest sympathies to families of the three men who died violent deaths in Gaza.

Not these three men!

The IDF has released footage of the pre-dawn Israeli air strike in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip that killed that three of the senior commanders of the armed wing of Hamas.

Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in a statement identified the leaders as Mohammed Abu Shamalah, Raed al-Attar and Mohammed Barhum. Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said eight people were killed in the strike Thursday.

Witnesses said a four-storey family home was completely destroyed in a series of air strikes.

No, good riddance to bad rubbish.

We mourn the passing of these three men:

The armed wing of Hamas has executed three Palestinian Arabs and arrested seven others for allegedly collaborating with Israel during the Gaza war, a website close to the movement reported Thursday.

The Majd website quoted a senior security official in the enclave as saying seven people had been arrested on suspicion of scoping out targets for Israel and that three others had been shot dead. The official said that the three were killed after “revolutionary procedures” were completed against them.

Israel will be condemned for ridding the world of three terrorists, but no one will ever speak of the three men who were summarily executed by Hamass. But we will bear witness.

Put Down the Tam Tams and Step Away From the Shelves

I see no problem here. How many Mohammeds (see post below) buy kosher?

A British supermarket chain is at the center of an anti-Semitism row, after a Jewish shopper found that the Kosher section had been completely removed, and was told by the store manager that Kosher food has been taken down because “We support Gaza.”

Anti-Israel demonstrators had picketed the branch of Sainsbury’s in Holborn, central London, part o fa pattern of aggressive calls to boycott Jewish-made Israeli goods – calls that often spilled over into violence.

In one incident Saturday, anti-Israel activists trashed a Tesco store in Hodge Hill while waving Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) flags, throwing produce on the ground and closing the establishment for several minutes. Likewise protests outside Tesco stores in Greater Manchester, Blackburn and Luton were reported.

The Sainsbury’s move to empty the Kosher section was discovered that same Saturday by Jewish actor Colin Appleby, who posted a photo of the empty shelves on his Facebook page.

Appleby recounted what he had been told by the store manager, triggering a firestorm of criticism with many noting that a significant proportion of the Kosher goods were not even from Israel, and that the move amounted to pure anti-Semitism as it clearly targeted Jewish shoppers.

Journalist Jonathan Sacerdoti, who is also a Sainsbury’s customer, called Sainsbury’s on Sunday to register his shock over the incident, to which he was told the store decided to remove the Kosher goods out of fear that protesters would “take Kosher products off the shelf” and wreak havoc.

“Why is it considered a good reaction to remove products of interest to Jews from the shelves when there’s going to be some sort of violent intervention rather than to stop the violent intervention?” asked Sacerdoti. “If I told you I was going to go into the store and start trashing Halal products from the shelves, would you remove them all?”

“Of course not,” responded the Sainsbury’s telephone operator. After being pressed by Sacerdoti she refused to call the incident a “mistake,” later refusing to comment on her statement that the store would not remove Halal products when faced with an identical threat.

No one’s making Britain behave this way. All those baby Mohammeds, Mohameds, and Muhammeds (see post below) are too young to mind kosher groceries. Heck, they may even like them. All those baby Muhamets have mommies and daddies—some of whom might be upset that Jewish dietary laws are respected, but lots of whom aren’t.

But Sainsbury’s supports Hamastan. So the Manischewitz has to go.

PS: I’ve always wondered how come the Prophet’s visage can’t be depicted even once (even though it has been, plenty), while His name can be transliterated thusly?

The name is transliterated as Mohammad (primarily in Iran and Afghanistan), Muhammad (in Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and Malaysia), Muhammed (Arab World, primarily in North Africa), Mohamed, Mohammed, Mohamad and Muhammad (Arab World), Muhammed, Muhamed (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Muhammed, Muhamed, Muhammet, or Muhamet (Turkey and Albania).

The name may be abbreviated to Md., Mohd., Muhd., or simply M. because of its utmost meaning, its popularity has meant that it can become hard to distinguish people when there is a multitude with the same name, in some cases it may be to keep a personal name less tied to a religious context. This is only done if the person has a second given name, Some men who have Muhammad (or variant) as a first name choose not to use it, as it is such a common name. Instead they use another given name. For example, Anwar Sadat, Hosni Mubarak, Zia-ul-Haq, Ayub Khan and Nawaz Sharif use their second given name.

In Latin, it is Mahometus (hence Italian Maometto) and ?????? (Moameth) in Greek. In Catalan and in Spanish, it is Mahoma, in Portuguese, it is Maomé, and in Galician it is Mamede. In Polish it is Mahomet. In Russia, it is ???????? (Mukhammad), another common spelling is ??????? (Magomed). In Somali, it is Maxamed. In Senegal and in other West African nations, the variant is Mamadou. In Kazakh, the name is ???????? (Mukhammed). In Chinese, it is written as ???? (Mùh?nmòdé). In Hebrew, it is written as ????? (Mukhammad).

Your Tax Dollars at Work


Those Arab terrorist tunnels?

Not technically, but money is fungible. We pay a massive percentage of the UN’s bills, and the UN pays for the tunnels:

While controversy continues to swirl around the huge Hamas tunnel network in Gaza, an internal United Nations audit report reveals that a U.N. Development Program office that funds and monitors spending on construction in the territory allowed at least five non-staff contract employees to handle “core” procurement processes that only staffers are supposed to handle, including those for ordering up “significant” civil construction activities.

Moreover, the report says, of the UNDP office: “the Office was not monitoring and recording actual work” performed by these individuals and other contract employees handling “core” functions, and the terms of reference for their employment “did not include specifications for services provided to particular projects” — in other words, were relatively undefined.

At the same time, the office’s internal financial tracking system — a UNDP-wide system known as Atlas — was improperly recording at least $8 million worth of civil construction spending at far less than its full value, a practice that UNDP auditors noted could keep the activity under the radar of higher-level U.N. officials who must approve purchase orders above defined cost threshold levels.

Taken together, the findings in the carefully manicured audit report — which was vetted by UNDP management at the affected office — point to a possible black hole in the supervision of civil construction, and perhaps other programs in Gaza and the other Palestinian territories for at least a year before the current explosion of terrorism.

The report adds a new level of potential credibility to Israeli accusations that internationally-managed relief supplies to Gaza were diverted into construction of the elaborate and highly-engineered tunnels under the territory that were used by Hamas terrorists to launch and coordinate rocket attacks and incursions into Israel that dramatically escalated in March.

Anybody can eff up. Like when you find terrorists storing missiles in classrooms of schools you run for their kids. Who hasn’t had that happen to them? And then returned the seized missiles to the same terrorists? Come on, fess up. Let he who is without sin…

Of course, maybe the UN could do just a little better:

The main purpose of the UNDP program, based in Jerusalem and like all U.N. activities operating under diplomatic immunity from any national authorities, was to provide funding and support for what the document chastely calls “another U.N. entity” that coordinates the world organization’s activity in Gaza.

That “entity” is the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA, which has been accused for years — and especially during the last major Israeli military response to Palestinian terrorist attacks from Gaza in 2009 — of allowing Hamas to divert humanitarian supplies to its own military purposes. UNWRA has some 13,000 employees in Gaza, the overwhelming majority of them local Palestinians.

Your tax dollars, America, and paying taxes is patriotic!

Some Ceasefire

I see reports in the news that the Arab occupiers of Gaza have declared a ceasefire against Israel.

Hard to see it myself:

Sunday, August 10

4:43 PM: Three rockets fired from Gaza hit open areas in southern Israel.

3:14 PM: Goods regularly reach Gaza through our Kerem Shalom crossing. We’ve temporarily closed the crossing due to Hamas’ rocket fire over the area.

2:54 PM: Gaza terrorists fired two rockets over Sderot. The Iron Dome intercepted them.

2:35 PM: Two rockets hit the southern Israeli community of Kissufim.

2:15 PM: Three rockets fired from Gaza hit the Israeli city of Sderot.

7:21 AM: Two rockets fired from Gaza hit southern Israel.

Twelve rocket launches do not a ceasefire make.

About Those War Crimes

Yeah, but would the truth sell papers?

International media outlets, including The New York Times and the BBC, have raised serious questions regarding Gaza civilian casualty figures as recorded by health officials both in the Strip and abroad.

The outlets maintain that the hard data does not support the notion that the Israel Defense Forces is engaged in “indiscriminate” killing of unarmed residents in the Palestinian enclave, as was suggested by several international leaders over the past month.

Citing figures released by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the BBC’s head of statistics Anthony Reuben found that the number of civilian men killed in the fighting outnumbered the number of women by a factor of nearly 3.5:1. According to the UN, 725 men were killed in the conflict as opposed to 214 women. When the 216 confirmed “members of armed groups” were included in the figures, the disparity grew even larger. Israeli military officials said 750-1,000 Hamas and other gunmen had been killed in the fighting as of Tuesday, August 5.

“If the Israeli attacks have been ‘indiscriminate,’ as the UN Human Rights Council says, it is hard to work out why they have killed so many more civilian men than women,” Reuben noted dryly.

I emphasized the word civilian because I think most of them were anything but. As the New York Times concedes:

The question echoes a New York Times analysis from earlier this week, which showed “that the population most likely to be militants, men ages 20 to 29, is also the most overrepresented in the death toll: They are 9 percent of Gaza’s 1.7 million residents, but 34 percent of those killed whose ages were provided. At the same time, women and children under 15, the least likely to be legitimate targets, were the most underrepresented, making up 71 percent of the population and 33 percent of the known-age casualties.”

Sorry, you Jew-hating human rights wonks, but you have been hoist by your own petard:

The death-toll statistics may constitute decisive evidence that, contrary to the claims of organizations such as the UN Human Rights Council, Human Rights Watch, and others, civilians were not the targets of Israel’s strikes in the Strip. Deliberate targeting of civilians would amount to war crimes under both international and Israeli law. Israel has stressed that it is seeking to avoid civilian casualties as it tackles Hamas rockets and tunnels, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday the international community should hold Hamas responsible for all Gaza civilian deaths since it uses Gaza civilians as “human shields” for its terrorist infrastructure.

Now, where again did the BBC (hardly friendly to Israel in the best of times) get their data?

“Citing figures released by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights…”

How can the UN accuse Israel of war crimes when their own data proved the smear just another blood libel. But as Mark Twain (might have) said: “A lie can travel halfway round the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

PS: Meanwhile:

Conflicting reports concerning the mysterious death of a senior Hamas official surfaced Thursday, three days after his mangled body was said to have been uncovered in the ruins of the battered Shejaiya neighborhood, in the northeastern Gaza Strip.

While initial reports stated that Ayman Taha, a former spokesman for the Gaza-based terror organization, had been killed during an Israeli airstrike in the embattled coastal enclave, Palestinian daily Al-Quds reported that he was executed by a Hamas firing squad earlier this week for allegedly maintaining contact with intelligence services in Arab countries, and specifically in Egypt.

Taha, according to Al-Quds, was shot several times in the head and chest. His body was later transferred to the Shifa hospital. Hamas initially barred the incident from publication until Thursday, when the information was released.

All we know for sure is he’s dead. Very dead.

The rest is not so clear:

Sources in the Gaza Strip said on Thursday that Taha was executed because Hamas feared he might implicate some of its leaders in many corruption scandals. “The man knew too much about the senior leaders of Hamas.”

The international media, for its part, will simply endorse the Hamas story because it is more convenient to blame Israel than to get into trouble with a radical Islamist movement that carries out extra-judicial executions.

Indian And French News Crews Broadcast Rocket Launcher Near Hotels, UN Buildings

Watch the videos here

I am not linking to the youtube site because it turns on automatically, meaning that if I post those videos, BTL will open with noise. Not good. However, the content of both videos is well-worth a couple minutes of your time. The Indian crew sort of hid in their hotel room and filmed the building of the launch pad and the surrounding area. The French crew filmed the rocket practically whizzing by the reporter’s ear, as well as children playing with the parts and a large UN building nearby.

Why didn’t they show us this when it mattered? My guess is that Hamas would have killed the reporters. I’ll bet a nickel that they are safe at home now, and so they feel comfortable showing us this stuff. So the question is this: Will the NY Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, CNN, MSNBC (hah!) and the rest of the MSM bother to report any of this? Will they show this footage?

PS – I know that many of you find Fox News tiresome, (it is in many ways), but Sean Hannity has be doing live reports from bomb shelters, tunnels, an underground playground, a kibbutz that was shelled during the previous “ceasefire”, etc. He’s interviewed a lot of interesting people. I don’t know if those reports are available on youtube or not, but they are interesting.

Finally! Someone Who Doesn’t Believe the Media Lies

While not strictly a pro-Israel rally, the effect is the same:

Palestinian Arab sources said Tuesday that Gaza residents attacked Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri Saturday evening, near the Shifa Hospital.

Abu Zuhri had arrived at the hospital for an interview with a news outlet.

The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents.

Arabic website vetogate.com said that reporters in Gaza are well aware of the incident but are afraid to report it, because Hamas’s security agency could go after them if they do.

A week ago, Palestinian sources reported that over 30 Palestinians were executed by Hamas, most of them in the Shejaiya neighborhood. Hamas claimed that they were collaborators with Israel.

Channel 10 said that Hamas executed 20 residents of Shejaiya who had dared demonstrate against Hamas.

Rockets were fired at Israel from next to Shifa Hospital during the fighting in Gaza, and Hamas’s leadership hid under it.

Ask yourself, Arab occupiers of Gaza, wouldn’t life be a whole lot better under Israeli sovereignty? You’ll have to learn to love life more than death, but it’s not that hard.

War on Children Update Update

A companion piece to our War on Children Update from this morning:

Erez is Gaza’s only pedestrian gateway into Israel, and throughout Operation Protective Edge more than 400 Palestinians have crossed through it in local ambulances seeking medical treatment in Israeli and West Bank hospitals.

On July 21, the IDF opened a military field hospital in the enormous border terminal, meant to provide emergency treatment for civilians injured in Gaza and unable to seek medical care in the Strip’s failing medical installations. Two weeks later, the Government Press Office invited a busload of foreign journalists to view the hospital for the first time, striving to show the efforts of the Israeli army to protect Palestinian civilians’ lives.

With a permanent staff of 20 doctors, nurses and medics on location, the Erez field hospital boasts advanced resuscitation equipment, a delivery room, a pharmacy, and lab services. Specialists include a pediatrician, an ophthalmologist and a gynecologist. Yet despite the apparent eagerness of the Israeli professionals to treat Palestinians in need, on Friday the hospital was completely empty.

Colorful stuffed animals rested untouched atop a clean hospital bed in the pediatric room; doctors in military uniforms and white cloaks paced the empty corridors, stethoscopes around their necks.

“We encounter deep suspicion from patients,” said Lt. Col. Sharon Biton of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the IDF branch entrusted with Palestinian civilian affairs, which set up the hospital together with the Medical Corps. Since its establishment, the hospital has treated some 50 Palestinians, providing life-saving treatment to a few, he said.

“At first people refuse treatment, but later they calm down and understand that we are completely on their side. We are entirely detached from the fighting going on inside [the Gaza Strip],” Biton told The Times of Israel.

One would expect more activity in the state-of-the-art field hospital, given the high number of injured Palestinians just kilometers away in Gaza’s understaffed and under-equipped hospitals. Biton said the primary force keeping Palestinians away was Hamas.

In one case cited by Biton, a seven-year-old child was brought to the hospital and quickly diagnosed with leukemia. Before being referred to Shiba Hospital outside Tel Aviv, his grandmother was asked to sign Israeli admission forms.

“At first the grandmother said she couldn’t read or write, but then she told us she’s a school headmistress, so apparently she could,” said Biton, who oversees the Arabic-Hebrew translation at the hospital. “When I asked her why she had told us that, she said that I must understand the basic fear and mistrust, which I indeed do.”

The few patients who did arrive at Erez were either picked up by IDF fighting units in the field, or referred by UNRWA or the Red Cross. A 75-year-old woman was left behind by her fleeing family in Khan Younis and brought to Erez in a state of dehydration and fatigue by Israeli soldiers. A 21-year-old man arrived in serious condition with shrapnel in his lung. Both were referred to Israeli hospitals.

“Our capabilities await the residents of the Gaza Strip to come and receive medical treatment,” said Lt. Col. Rachel Mezan, chief nurse of the Medical Corps and head of the field hospital. “We are very experienced in this type of mission. We set the hospital up quickly and adapt to the changing needs. In some cases we’ve definitely managed to save lives.”

To paraphrase Hamass, they love dead children more than Jews and Christians love life.

Now What, Dumbo?

I’m not certain that’s what Netanyahu said to Obama, but it should have been:

In a phone call with US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vents his anger, according to people familiar with the call. It is not clear when the call took place.

Netanyahu told Shapiro the Obama administration was “not to ever second-guess me again” and that Washington should trust his judgment on how to deal with Hamas, according to people familiar with the conversation. Netanyahu added that he now “expected” the US and other countries to fully support Israel’s offensive in Gaza, according to those familiar with the call. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name.

They said Netanyahu made similar points to Kerry, who himself denounced the attack as “outrageous,” saying it was an affront to assurances to respect the ceasefire given to the United States and United Nations, which brokered the truce.

And while we’re on the subject of I told you so:

A television reporter from the Finnish Helsingin Sanomat confirms that Hamas has been firing rockets out of the Al-Shifa Hospital.

The reporter, who is not named in the television segment shot on-site in Gaza, says a rocket was launched “right in the back the parking lot” of the hospital at 2 a.m. between Thursday and Friday.

“Really, it happened right in the area, the sound of it was really loud,” she says, confirming reports that Hamas is committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip by shooting from civilian concentrations, medical centers and other humanitarian institutions.

“It’s true that rockets are launched here from the Gazan side into Israel.”

She said as she sprinted to get out of Gaza before Hamass made a piñata out of her.

What other behavior could one expect from a people who swear they love death more than we love life?

Remember that, Dumbo. You too, Mr. Ed.

Good Morning!

New day, new Hamass atrocity:

A “humanitarian ceasefire” between Israel and Hamas has broken Friday, after Hamas fired yet another salvo of rockets on Israel despite the bilateral truce.

Heavy fighting has now broken out between Israel and Hamas in southern Gaza, according to Palestinian sources, who also claim that eight terrorists have been killed since 10:00 am.

Rocket fire from Hamas and Islamic Jihad has resumed.

Mortar shells have been fired in the Eshkol region; no injuries were reported, but a brushfire started and is spreading. Firefighting teams are working to stymie the blaze.

The Iron Dome missile defense system also shot down two rockets over Ofakim Friday afternoon.

“Once again the terror organizations in Gaza flagrantly violating the ceasefire to which they committed themselves, this time to the US Secretary of State and the UN Secretary General,” a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said, without pointing to a specific incident.

Earlier, Hamas fired a salvo of rockets at the south just before 7:00 am Friday; two rockets hit open areas in S’dot HaNegev and in the Merhavim area. No injuries or damage were reported.

Additional rockets were fired at Ashkelon and Ashdod, just after 7:30 am. Two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over Ashdod; there are no reports of injuries or damage.

Yet another salvo was fired, just five minutes before 8:00 am, at Gaza Belt communities.

The barrages were fired just minutes before a 72-hour ceasefire was to take effect, in a UN and US-brokered deal slated to begin 8:00 am Friday.

There is even a report that an Israeli soldier was captured.

I ask John Kerry and the striped-pants brigade to please dispense with the peace “processes”. Israel has a job to do; fifty-six soldiers have died to protect their country. How about for a change you let Israel win?

As others are asking:

“We call on the Prime Minister to return Israel her sovereignty,” MK Miri Regev (Likud) stated Friday. “We must stop these cease-fires – they give over a message of hesitancy.”

“We must not accept a single condition in a cease-fire,” she continued. “We must either demilitarize or retake Gaza; there is no middle ground. Now is the time.”

Regev’s statements surface after weeks of similar statements from ministers, many of whom have conveyed disappointment over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s willingness to dabble in the demands of the international community regarding a cease-fire.

Another voice in the chorus:

Feiglin does not believe in going after rocket launchers or tunnels. Gaza should be retaken in whole, he said, by directly attacking the Hamas leadership and striving for victory, and doing so according to Jewish law, without sacrificing soldiers in order to save members of the local population, which voted Hamas into power.

Once this is accomplished, the terrorists who fight Israel must be destroyed, he said, and the remaining population should be encouraged to leave through monetary compensation. Surveys show that 80% of Gazans would like to leave the Mediterranean coastal strip and move elsewhere in the world. The minority that decides to stay will be allowed to stay and gradually receive a status similar to the Arabs of eastern Jerusalem.

We see in the short term (overnight) that Israel can’t trust or work with Arab occupiers of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. The chronicle of the last 65 years or so demonstrates they can’t trust or work with them in the long term either. If Kerry and his ilk really wanted peace they’d support the single state of Israel from the river to the sea. Anything less is just a Jewish ghetto.
