Daphni Leef: 'Protests to get more extreme'
Jpost.com ^ | 11/24/11 | staff

Posted on 11/24/2011 10:54:36 AM PST by Nachum

Leef declares that that she is against violence but that people are becoming increasingly angry, hopeless.

Demonstrations will soon resume and could become more "extreme" than past protests, social protest organizer Daphni Leef said Thursday morning in an interview with Army Radio.

"I will always be against violence, but if this government does not pull itself together and work for its citizens, people will understand that they have nothing to lose," explained Leef. "The government is not even trying to show results or real changes... During the last two weeks we have begun feeling angry and insulted because we are simply not being answered."

The government commissioned the Trajtenberg Committee on Socio-Economic Change to seek a solution for the high housing cost across the country in response to the social protests over the summer. The committee's recommendations were passed in cabinet and constituted a substantive amendment to the country’s taxation regime. The new system, which will become law on January 1, 2012, include direct tax cuts for low-income families and tax hikes for higher-income earners and corporations.

“if this government does not pull itself together and work for its citizens, people will understand that they have nothing to lose”

That in a nutshell is the mindset of our unassimilated urban underclass, and the mentality is spreading. What reason does someone with no job (and almost 0 chance of finding one within the foreseeable future), a home in foreclosure, and no money have to get out of bed in the morning?

I don’t think we’ll see massive organized violence, but I’m sure we’ll see more individuals “falling down” and/or killing themselves.

I invite them to get more violent and then feel the consequences of their actions by being on the receiving end of enough violence to put them in the hospital or six feet under.

Funny how this bimbo doesn't consider the ballot box a viable option.

She'd first have to admit that she and many others screwed up by voting for Obama. Then she'd have to examine the politics of the last 4 presidents. If she did, she would HAVE to admit in order to get the real change she seeks, the alternative is a real Conservative. How about Herman Cain? That'd make for some real change...in the right direction this time.

Try Bill Whittle’s “3-1/2 days in the woods” answer. In this case, it would be 3-1/2 days in the desert.

"I will always be against violence"

The passive aggressive nature of the Left.

Look what you made me do.
This is all your fault.
I was against violence, but due to your actions, we now must have violent revolution to overthrow your police state.
I hope you're happy you bourgeois swine!

Well, Daphy Daphi, welcome to the law of unintended consequences. Hope you’ve learned a valuable lesson. Be careful what you wish for. A word of advice to the Daphnis of the world, be sure your brains are engaged before you put your mouths in gear.

"Where is the affordable housing? In many different countries in the world, governments have come to the conclusion that they must get involved in the housing market. This report doesn’t offer any solution, only a continuation of the same policies that brought us to the current crisis.”

So, she wants them to go the way of our housing market???

Someone should mention that this is about demonstrations and the government in Israel, not the USA. That the article appeared in the Jerusalem Post and refers to “Army Radio are clues. The main complaint is the high cost of housing.

Importantly, the radicals organizing the Israeli demonstrations are from the same gang organizing the US demonstrations. “Community organizers”, Democrat party operatives all.

And they are using Israel as a test bed for schemes they are planning to take to the US. In both cases the objective is the same, to attack the conservative political parties and to enable the leftist political parties.

They are more than happy to resort to violence to do this, as it is in their doctrines, so don’t believe for a moment that this is a non-violent movement. It is only non-violent until it is ordered to go on a rampage of destruction, arson, and mayhem.

As long as we have any semblance of normalcy to cling to, we’re too cowed (I know I am). If I had nothing left to lose, I’d be a bit more “proactive”.

I don’t know whether Ms Leaf is just a useful idiot or part of the internationalist group organizing these activities aiming to incite police to physical force. This was the aim of the university”protests” of the 1960s, and the Hay Market Riots of Chicago decades earlier. The dangerous Alinsky proteges are operating wherever freedom of speech is protected. p.s. Hillary Clinton was a student of Chicagoan, Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama was trained by the students of Alinsky.

I have some deep suspicions about Obama and his family, that call into question a lot of assumptions.

To start with, both his mother and his maternal grandfather seem to be wholly-owned properties of the CIA.

To start with, there is an interesting picture of his grandfather, “the furniture salesman”, standing next to Obama’s mother, as a little girl. Grandfather is wearing a sweater with a most unique patch on it. The patch is from an elite, French language school in Beirut of the time.

Then, when you look at the career of Obama’s mother, virtually everything she did, and all her education, was through CIA front organizations and corporations that subcontracted to the CIA. All her education was fully paid for with government grants, not loans, at a time when such things were far less common outside of the GI Bill for veterans.

Going down the list of her employers and where she was employed, is a guidebook to US SE Asian intelligence infrastructure of the period. Even her marriages seem designed to get her access. Her Indonesian work was in a critical position to monitor major financial transactions through the region. Returning to Hawaii, she met Obama’s father in a Russian language course.

Obama himself seems to have been bred to be a deep cover Cold Warrior. And note that many of his radical leftist friends from the 1960s are unique in that they are still alive, never served a day in prison, have impeccable leftist credentials in academia, etc. If the Soviet Union hadn’t folded, Obama could have been welcome in the inner circles in the Kremlin.

If it all sounds ridiculously contrived, I can cite as comparison, “Operation Solo”, an American communist leader turned by the FBI, who was instrumental in defusing several Cold War crises. These operations can get very complicated.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Childs

However, with the end of the Cold War, Obama himself became a problem. His education, background, and everything had been scrubbed and sterilized at great expense. However, H.W. Bush changed everything.

The US has had many military generals that have become POTUS, but H.W. Bush was the first “CIA President”, in that he had led the agency. And this might have led the CIA to opine why shouldn’t it have representatives in congress, or even the presidency?

There was some suggestion that Bill Clinton, as a “student radical”, had performed at least some piecemeal work for the CIA, even doing them a favor of letting them use the Mena, Arkansas airport when he was governor. But Bill was never a real insider.

Obama seems to have been born and bred to be a top agent. Yet his real political sensibilities are questionable. Are they his, or the product of his handlers at the agency? And more importantly, is he trying to create something, or destroy it from within?

Take Obamacare, for example. For it to exist, it must first destroy two of America’s most expensive welfare programs, Medicare and Medicaid, both of which are otherwise politically immune from any reform, and yet are bankrupting the US. And Obamacare must do this *first*, before taking over. But what if Obamacare also has a “poison pill”, making it self destruct after having taken out these two monstrosities?

It would leave the US without any national health care program at all. Forcing privatization on most of it. And doing the US a huge favor.

The bottom line is that, as unpatriotic as it seems sometimes, the CIA is totally focused on protecting the US, and if necessary, being utterly ruthless in doing so. And this may include protecting us from ourselves.

Food for thought.
