Tiferet Israel 3
A Dangerous Silence
www.internationalwallofprayer.org, 16 April 2010 [cached]
I weep as I witness outrageous verbal attacks on Israel.
...
Never have I thought that I would leave the U.S. to go and live in Israel. My loyalty and love is first to the U.S. which has given me, the son of Polish Jewish immigrants, so much. But, I have also long been cognizant of the fact that every night when I went to sleep in peace and safety, there were Jewish communities around the world in danger. And there was one country, Israel, that would give them sanctuary and would send its soldiers to fight for them and deliver them from evil, as Israel did at Entebbe in 1976.
I weep today because my president, Barack Obama, in a few weeks has changed the relationship between the U.S. and Israel from that of closest of allies to one in which there is an absence of trust on both sides. The contrast between how the president and his administration deals with Israel and how it has decided to deal with the Karzai administration in Afghanistan is striking.
...
The plan I suspect is to so weaken the resolve of the Jewish state and its leaders that it will be much easier to impose on Israel an American plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, leaving Israel's needs for security and defensible borders in the lurch. I believe President Obama's policy is to create a whole new relationship with the Arab states of Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt, and Iraq as a counter to Iran - The Tyrannosaurus Rex of the Mulim world which we are now prepared to see in possession of a nuclear weapon. If throwing Israel under the bus is needed to accomplish this alliance, so be it.
I am shocked by the lack of outrage on the part of Israel's most ardent supporters.
The members of AIPAC, the chief pro-Israel lobbying organization in Washington, gave Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a standing ovation after she had carried out the instructions of President Obama and, in a 43 - minute telephone call, angrily hectored Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Members of Congress in both the House and Senate have made pitifully weak statements against Obama's mistreatment of Israel, if they made any at all.
...
If Obama is seeking to build a seige ramp around Israel, the Jews of modern Israel will not commit suicide. They are willing to negotiate a settlement with the Palestinians, but they will not allow themselves to be bullied into following self-destructive policies.
To those who call me an alarmist, I reply that I'll be happy to apologize if I am proven wrong. But those who stand silently by and watch the Obama administration abandon Israel, to whom will they apologize?

The Passing Away of Israel's Beloved Songwriter [Naomi Shemer]
www.internationalwallofprayer.org, 2 July 2004 [cached]
Israel is mourning the passing of its most loved songwriter, Naomi Shemer.
...
This closeness to natural cycles of the Land of Israel, coupled with her deep knowledge of the Bible, its text also steeped in natural imagery, is part of what made her work so Israeli, so uniquely part of this country and so closely tied both to ancient Israel and to the modern state.
In part this is why she touched such a cord among Israelis, becoming our unofficial "national songwriter". In her prolific career she wrote just about every song: bright nonsense songs for army entertainment troupes and musicals, simple children's songs, patriotic epics, translations of French chansons and Yiddish ballads and acres of whimsical love songs. But the lyrics which most

NEWS ANALYSIS
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- With Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu about to establish a new government, early signs of strain in Israel's relations with Europe are showing.
...

Still, Israel is likely to face friction with Europe.
