|Farewell to President Bush:he bravely stood up to the greatest challenge that he faced and was victoriousJanuary 20, 2009|
A website contributor
President Bush leaves office today and many in the U.S. and world feel like it could come a moment too soon. The difficult attrition in Iraq and Afghanistan coupled with the economic meltdown has left Mr. Bush with very low approval ratings as he ends his 8 year term. While the criticism of Mr. Bush is understandable, the U.S. and world media’s hate towards the man caused them to mock and ridicule the leader of the free world who governed his country with complete dedication and iron resolution. Many have forgotten where the country was just 7 years ago when Arab terrorists crushed planes on the world trade center and the Pentagon. For the greatest challenge of the time, President Bush was the right man and the right time in the right place. For that I’m sure history will judge him more favorably.
|Netanyahu on the Cease Fire – We hit Hamas real hard but the task was not finishedJanuary 18, 2009|
Netanyahu visited wounded soldiers and civilians in Beer Sheva and commented about the recent cease fire wit Hamas: "truth be told, the IDF delivered very hard blows to Hamas but unfortunately the task was not completed. Hamas still controls Gaza and it will continue to smuggle rockets through the philadelphi buffer zone."

Please let Pollard go.
|Netanyahu: "Israel will ultimately have to topple the Hamas regime" 13.01.09|
"At the end of the day, there will be no escape from toppling the Hamas rule... If the government decides to adopt this goal, we will also back it," the former prime minister told reporters in Jerusalem.
|Netanyahu in Ashkelon: Israel must take over the “philadelphi” buffer zoneJanuary 8, 2009|
After yet another day fighting and rocket fire Netanyahu visited Ashekelon, one of the closest cities to the Gaza strip.
Netanyahu reiterated the opinion he had expressed in recent days: “I think that we must finish the job in a way that we will not find ourselves in the near future with rockets fired to Ashkelon and Tel-Aviv. We need to hit Hamas on the head but also we need to take over the philadelphi route (a strategic buffer zone – see below), because if we won’t do it the cease-fire will again be an illusion that Hamas will take use to rearm itself”.
|About the “phlialdelphi “ route or corridor:08,01,09|
The “philadelphi” route is an Israeli military nick name to the route that goes along the Israeli-Egyptian border from the Mediterranean Sea (now under Hamas control) all the way to the Red sea near Eilat. When people refer today to the “philadelphi” route they mean the part of the route from the sea to Kerem Shalom – effectively it’s the border between Hamas ruled Gaza and Egypt.
|Special: The Hamas Covenant – Anti-Semitism of the worst kind: the Jews are responsible for all wars.No compromise possible. And the solution is only jihad.|
January 2nd, 2009
When spokesmen appear on the TV in defense of Hamas, when column writers blast Israel, when university professors identify with Hamas's struggle this is what they support (either knowingly or not):
With these words the Hamas covenant begins: "Israel will exist, and will continue to exist, until Islam abolishes it". This document (which is fully laid out below) is the most important ideological manifest of the Hamas movement's ideals, objectives and methods. It is an extremely radical, racist and violent vision for the Middle East. The Hamas believes that "The Jews are responsible for all wars in the world". One of the more interesting things in the covenant is the kind of Anti Semitic slander that appears in it. They have mixed into their hatred old style European anti Semitic themes such as relying on the infamous "protocols of the elders of Zion" as well as blaming the Jews everything bad in the world. They even spew paranoid hatred against organizations like the Free Masons, Rotary Lion etc similar to paranoia of the Nazis and Fascists.

|Netanyahu in the Knesset: "We restrained ourselves long enough" December 29, 2008|
In a special emergency session of the Knesset, opposition leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, expressed full support for the military action and called for unity behind the Army and citizens of the south.
The main exerts from his speech:
For three crimes of Gaza, and the fourth no response said Amos (prophet of the Hebrew Bible). On firing on our civilians, on hiding behind civilians, on causing pain and suffering on our civilian and their civilians, we will return upon the murderer's regime tenfold.
On the call to annihilate us, on the dancing on the ruins of our villages, on the poisoning of minds and hearts, on the destroying of hopes, we will retaliate heavy handedly, the hand of Israel, as the prophet Amos said: "and I shall send fires onto the walls of Gaza"
There isn't a nation in the world who would have acted differently. No people who would have restrained itself so long, too long.
For many years we have been saying that the cease fire is an illusion and that we need to go from passiveness to activeness, but now we should focus on the present and the future.

Strong showing for the Likud in most polls this week; polls averages for the 21-26 of December show Likud leading 31 seats, right wing block 65 seats
December 26, 2008
After last weeks polls showed a narrowing of the gap between Kadima and the Likud, most of this week’s polls show the Likud renewing it’s upwards trend while Kadima weakens. Commentators have noted that due to the recent developments in the Gaza strip there could be big variations between polls taken early this week and polls taken yesterday due to significant public disapproval of the current situation.
|Opinion: Livni's campaign: be the Foreign Affairs Minister but act like you have nothing to do with the current governmentAll the recent statement from Kadima leader, Tzipi Livni, sound as if she is from the opposition and not number 2 in the government.
Foreign Affairs Minister, Tzipi Livni, who is also the deputy prime minister and the one who replaces him in absence, is sounding more and more like she is actually from the parliamentary opposition. Probably her campaign consultants have discovered that Kadima's performance has head of the government is so poor in the eyes of the public that she must do everything she can to act as if she had nothing to do with the current government. Their hope is that the public is so short sighted or stupid that it will not to hold Livni and all of Kadima responsible for the string of failed policies and mistake that have been made in the last 3 years.|
|Netanyahu visits the Golan Heights: Netanyahu visits the Golan Heights: "We're here to say to everyone that we will not withdraw from the Golan"|
December 22, 2008
Likud chairman, Benjamin Netanyahu, and other Likud members paid today a visit to the Golan Heights. This visit comes in contrast to Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert's, trip to Turkey to try and seal a last minute breakthrough in the peace process with Syria. There was growing criticism for Olmert's actions as it seemed he is willing to go to great lengths to try and better his "historical legacy" on the expense of Israel's security and without a mandate from the public and Knesset.
Netanyahu commented that "a Likud government will never withdraw from such a vital strategic asset". He also commented about the recent voices from the Kadima cabinet to take a hard stance on Hamas: "The people of Israel expect a leadership that will take care of their security 365 days a year and not politicians who shrug their responsibility after years of failed polices by suddenly voicing fierce comments".

After a meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, front-runner in next year's Israeli elections called Iran the "greatest historical challenge" the world faces.
"We have never had a situation in the history of the world in which a radical regime with a retrograde ideology and apparently no ambitions on the use of force will get access to the weapons of mass death," sayd Netanyahu referring to the prospect of an Iranian nuclear bomb.
|Likud party members elected their candidates for the General ElectionsDecember 17th, 2008|
December 8th, 2008 approximately 50,000 Likud members chose their candidates for the Israeli parliamentary elections which are to be held in February 2009. The front seat of the Likud party showed that the incumbent Knesset members got a vote of confidence as Gideon Sa'ar, Gilad Erdan and Ruby Rivlin won the highest number of votes. Recent polls have showed that the Likud is projected to get as much as 35 seats in the new Knesset (the Likud has only 12 seats in the current house). Below is the Likud list of candidates and some information about them:
|PollsRecent polls from Israel: The Likud maintains its commanding position after the primary elections|
December 18, 2008
All of the polls that were published last weekend showed that the Likud party under former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to hold a commanding position in towards the upcoming elections. All of the polls put the Likud above 31 seats in the Knesset and all of the polls project that the right wing (right wing plus the religious parties) parties have a majority in the 120 seat Knesset. If this remains so, then it is most likely that only Netanyahu will be able to form the next coalition government. Foreign Affairs Minster Tzipi Livni's party seems to continue it downward trend as the Labor party headed by Defense Minister Ehud Barak seems to have climbed back to two digit numbers after earlier polls have shown that labor is declining to as low as 7 seats.

The history of UNRWA’s relationship with Arab Muslim Palestinian Terrorists is long, deep, mostly hidden and misused. The recent use of an UNRWA school by Hamas Terrorists for a firing base and a weapons’ storage facility is barely being acknowledged by the Media.
|Gaza’s QuandaryJanuary 20, 2009, Mark Silverberg, www.familysecuritymatters.org|
By placing Gazans on perpetual welfare, UNRWA has insured that they will remain “refugees” and a source of chaos for Israel and for themselves for another sixty years. In a recent article in Wall Street Journal Europe, Gunnar Heinsohn asserts that the reason for Gaza’s enormous birth rate is that a large majority of its "refugee" clientele does not have to provide for their children since most Gazans are provided with cash, goods, food, clothing, medical care, vaccinations, schooling, and housing through UNRWA while Muslim nations “generously” contribute military hardware and weapons to Gaza’s idle, unemployed and radicalized youth.
