    The State of Israel is preparing for a new diplomatic battle, this time in Paris. In less than a week the Paris International Conference will convene with participation of delegates from 70 countries. Participants at the conference will call on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to disassociate from Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett due to his opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state. The world leaders will call on Israel to endeavor to establish such a state in order to reach an agreement with the Palestinian authority. The leaders maintain that there is no possibility of implementing such a solution...

    Video (hear his brain actually farting; youtube link below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey6SaEZFZNs Secretary of State John Kerry made a foray into internal Israeli politics on Sunday night, slamming the Israeli cabinet and singling out Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) by name, saying that Bennett’s recent statements on the future of Judea and Samaria were “profoundly disturbing”. Kerry spoke Sunday evening at the annual Saban Forum, hosted by the left-leaning Brookings Institute, one of whose overseas branches is in Qatar. The Secretary spoke at length about his feelings towards Israel and Zionism, and his belief that Israel is headed in the wrong...

    Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) has attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) over their support for a Palestinian state and the need for a political process with the Palestinians. "We will take down the government over anything that would lead to a division of the Land of Israel and the creation of a Palestinian state. We will fight it," he said during an interview on Meet the Press. "There will be no Palestinian state here. I will do anything to stop it," he promised. "We are in a government whose basic principles include...

Video Unbelievable footage has emerged showing an IDF soldier being beaten by Arab women and children in the village of Nabi Salah, Samaria The video is already being seen by some as proof that the army is having its hands effectively tied, both by increasingly restrictive instructions on how to handle violent Palestinian rioters, as well as by insufficient backup from the political echelons against legal campaigns by leftist NGOs targeting IDF soldiers. .....

  • Bennett Cuts Funding For Terror-Glorifying Play

    06/09/2015 3:04:32 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 2 replies
    Education Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Tuesday that he has decided to cut state funding for a play by an Arab theater about a terrorist who murdered an IDF soldier. "I've ordered the relevant people in the education ministry to immediately remove the play from the culture basket," he said of the state-funded selection of cultural events intended for youths. Bennett was referring to the play "The Parallel Time" by Almidan, an Arab theater in Haifa. The play tells the story of Walid Daka, an Arab-Israeli imprisoned for abducting and murdering Israeli soldier Moshe Tamam in 1984. "Israeli citizens won't...

    MK Tzipi Livni (Hatnua) fired back at Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett on Wednesday, after Bennett mocked her and suggested, following the terrorist attack in France, that she “get on a plane to Paris to solve the problems there” and “offer the French to 'end the occupation'”. "On this day we stand together with the French people against terrorism and against Islamist extremism," said Livni. “Unlike Bennett, who is not ashamed to dance on the blood of innocent people to achieve political gain, thus deepening the hostility and isolation of Israel in the world, I spoke today with the French...

    Tributes to two of the most famous American entertainers of the 20th century serve as a reminder of how fame flees. The entertainers are Bing Crosby and Bob Hope; the reminders are the documentary “American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered,” which had its premiere last week (and will run again on Dec. 26 ) on PBS, and “Hope: Entertainer of the Century,” a new biography by Richard Zoglin. Neither Crosby nor Hope have much cachet with contemporary consumers of art and culture, but the accounts of their careers make convincing cases that their contributions still influence their respective fields, even if...

    At the Saban Forum in Washington Last Saturday evening, Naftali Bennett became overnight the talk of the town. Bennett appeared at the prestigious Saban Forum 2014 of the Brookings Institution Saban Center for Middle East Policy devoted to Israel/US relations; or what’s left of them. Bennett did not merely “appear.” He waged a one-on-one confrontation with the man who is his complete antithesis, the former US ambassador to Israel and vice president and director for foreign policy at the Brookings Institute in Washington, Martin Indyk. It was a formative, possibly unique, event. Hundreds of participants in the hall were virtually...

    Referring to Israel as an “apartheid state” is a “blatant lie”, Economy Minister and Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett said on Thursday. Bennett gave a series of interviews to international media outlets and, in one of these interviews, was asked by a Sky News interviewer whether he is “worried” that the term “apartheid” is being used by some British parliamentarians in reference to Israel.

    Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon criticized Economic Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) on Saturday night, after the latter issued a fiery response to the words of US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday linking peace talks with ISIS. According to Ya'alon, Bennett's criticism lacks respect for the financial and diplomatic support the US has provided for Israel's right to self-defense against Hamas terrorism. "Relations between the United States and Israel are based on shared interests and values​​, and a dispute or other comments should not cast a shadow over that," Ya'alon stated. "The United States supports Israel in a variety of...

    The US State Department highly disparaged the remarks of Economics Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) against Secretary of State John Kerry's linkage of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and ISIS, claiming that Bennett was "distorting" the remarks for his "own political purposes." "I would take issue with the part of your question that Israeli leaders, plural, have disagreed with what they thought the Secretary said," State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf stated Friday, when questioned over Kerry's remarks at a press briefing. "I saw one in particular. And we would say to that that we know passions run high, politics are intense,...

Bennett was one of the few speakers invited to the conference from outside of the political left. When he walked up on the stage, boos and catcalls of “fascist” and “murderer” were heard from the audience. Additionally, cries of "Mohammed Abu Khder's blood is on your hands" were heard, a reference to the 16-year-old Arab youth found murdered last Wednesday. .....
