An Urgent Public Message

Filed under: The DiasporaThe Foundation — eidelberg @ 7:12 am Edit This

The well-known Israeli Attorney Elyakim Haetzni belatedly writes in The Jewish Press: “Today, like the air we breathe, we need an organized Jewish political force in the United States that, together with our non-Jewish friends in America and the Jewish nationalist camp in Israel, can breach the siege that is closing us off.” [“Where Is American Jewry?”, March 26, 2008].

For more than a decade I have been calling for the establishment of Jewish political force, i.e., an organization, in the United States with a parallel organization in Israel, to prevent Israel’s demise—this in the same Jewish Press for which I have written more than 1,000 articles since 1988. I have given said organization various names such as a “shadow government” and even “Israel’s Future Government-USA” (IFG-USA).” (more…)

A Brief Message from Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Filed under: Democratic MethodsThe DiasporaThe Foundation — eidelberg @ 6:50 am Edit This

What perpetuates the dysfunctional and treacherous government of Israel is its reputation as a democracy in the United States. The myth of Israeli democracy endows the government with legitimacy and its ruling elites—politicians, judges, academics, journalists—with respectability. Expose this myth in the U.S. and it will be immediately felt in Israel, especially among the elites. This is the most expeditious way of initiating basic institutional reform and regime change in Israel. For this, a well-financed and professional organization is needed in America, either in New York (perhaps better in Washington, D.C.) as well as a parallel organization in Israel.

Do American Zionist Organizations Really Help Israel?

Filed under: Zionism/NationalismThe Diaspora — eidelberg @ 6:48 am Edit This

Edited transcript of the Eidelberg Report, Israel National Radio, March 31, 2008.

Just returned from a US lecture tour. After a lively discussion at one of my talks, a member of the audience, I’ll call him “Mr. X,” engaged me in a remarkable conversation, one that has prompted me to formulate the following dialogue:

Mr. X: “Professor, I have read many of your articles, but you say nothing about American organizations that want to keep Israel weak by opposing any change in its impotent and unstable system of government.”

PE. “What organizations are you referring to?”

Mr. X. “Zionist organizations, whose leaders have a vested interest in keeping Israel weak—those who never call for basic reform of Israel’s decrepit system of government.” (more…)

Oppose the Saudi-Sponsored “Two-State Solution”

Filed under: Oslo/Peace ProcessThe DiasporaLetters — eidelberg @ 8:04 am Edit This

An Open Letter to all Jewish Organizations that oppose the Saudi sponsored “two-state” solution to the conflict between the Jews of Israel and the Arabs now occupying Judea and Samaria—Jewish land misleadingly called the “West Bank.”

Please obtain membership lists of the organizations [listed in the article, 14 National Groups Endorse Two-State Solution] that support the Saudi Plan. Send them copies of Dr. Daniel Pipes’ article [see link below] and urge them to denounce and resign from the organizations that support that plan—a plan that cannot but lead to the demise of Israel.

Sincerely,
Prof. Paul Eidelberg, President

14 National Groups Endorse “Two-State Solution”

Filed under: Oslo/Peace ProcessThe Diaspora — eidelberg @ 12:34 am Edit This

Please do not support any of the organizations listed below. Urge organizations such as the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) and Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI) to publicly denounce any so-called Jewish organization that endorses the perfidious two-state solution advocated by Saudi Arabia and every other genocidal Arab regime. The members of the organizations listed below should resign in protest, lest they aid and abet traitors to the Jewish people. To all those who advocate the establishment of an Arab state on Jewish soil, may they suffer ten-fold the miseries of Jews expelled from Gush Katif.—Prof. Paul Eidelberg

JCPA Endorses Two-State Solution

Published: 02/26/2008

The Jewish Council for Public Affairs endorsed for the first time a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

At its annual plenum Tuesday in Atlanta , the body, an umbrella organization representing 14 national Jewish groups and 125 local Jewish community relations councils, resolved that “the organized American Jewish community should affirm its support for two independent, democratic and economically viable states—the Jewish state of Israel and a state of Palestine—living side-by-side in peace and security.” (more…)

The United Coalition for Jerusalem

Emergency Campaign to Save Israel!

“If I Forget Thee O Jerusalem”

By capitulating to foreign interests and to the tiny but powerful anti-Zionist Left in Israel, the government is shattering the social contract that is the source of its right to govern. By violating the foundational principles and norms of the Jewish State, this government has delegitimized itself.

At the “Munich Conference” in Annapolis, the prime minister intends:

  • To establish an Arab terrorist state to be called Palestine;
  • To divide Jerusalem and give the Temple Mount to the Muslims; (more…)

Motion of No-Confidence in Israel

Filed under: PetitionsThe DiasporaCURRENT ISSUES — eidelberg @ 8:37 am Edit This

A message from Francisco Gil-White.

Dear readers,

You have been examining our articles and our documentation [on HIR: Historical and Investigative Research]. You have become familiar with our doomsday scenario concerning the future of Israel, and the danger to the entire West if the forces of Jihadism and revived Nazism are allowed to destroy the Jewish State. Many of you have asked me: “What can we do?” Here is something that we can all do.

Chaim Wolfowicz, a citizen of Israel, created strongisrael.org in order to give Israeli patriots, and their allies all over the world, an opportunity to express their disapproval with the Government of Israel. This government is planning to expel the Jews of Judea and Samaria (‘West Bank’) and give these militarily strategic territories to PLO/Fatah, an organization tracing its roots to the German Nazi Final Solution and committed to seeing it through, as we have documented here: http://www.hirhome.com/israel/pal_mov4.htm (more…)

Urgent Message from Dr. Steve Carol

Filed under: Oslo/Peace ProcessThe Diaspora — eidelberg @ 1:39 am Edit This

I am happy to endorse Dr. Carol’s message, indeed, year after year I have conveyed the same basic message to Jewish and Zionist organizations in America. Dr. Carol wants these organizations to not only to speak up and loudly denounce the Munich/appeasement policy of Israel’s government, but to withhold support for this government. He writes:

The organizations should include the Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Congress, AIPAC, ZOA, and any religious umbrella organization (e.g. United Reform Movement), etc.

What to say—“The time for silent acquiescence to the suicidal course of the Israeli government has come to an end. Israel and the Diaspora are inexorably intertwined (like a Havdalah candle). What happens to Israel will directly impact on all Jews globally. If Israel falls, anti-Semitism will rear its ugly head in a new wave that will make all previous waves in history, seem as if they were picnics”!! (more…)

Nadia’s Arrest and Prison Experience

Filed under: EthicsThe DiasporaIsrael's Nationals — eidelberg @ 7:26 am Edit This

An Open Letter to American Zionist Organizations:
apropos of the brutal arrest of Nadia Matar by the lackeys of Israel’s government:

● When will you display the courage of Nadia Matar—but not by merely deploring the arrest of this heroic woman? No, when will you have the courage to expose the nature of the government responsible for the brutal treatment of that heroine of Israel?

● When will you have the courage to stand up and show that this government exemplifies a democratically elected despotism?

● When will you have the courage to stand up and show that Israel’s political and judicial institutions, far from being democratic, are designed in such a way as to entrench scoundrels and traitors of Judaism in power? (more…)

Israel and the Nations

Filed under: The DiasporaBELIEFS & PERSPECTIVES — eidelberg @ 5:55 am Edit This

“In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.” These words of Rabbi Hillel apply to a nation no less than to an individual. They apply especially to Israel, to the Jewish people who, for 2,000 years, have been vilified, persecuted, and decimated by the nations of this world.

Israel is alone. Consider her present situation. Democratic America, like democratic Europe, is committed to a Palestinian state—an inevitable Arab dictatorship on Israel’s doorstep. Democratic America, like democratic Europe, is bent on forcing Israel back to her indefensible 1949 borders. Democratic America and democratic Europe are supplying Islamic dictatorships with sophisticated military equipment, which can only facilitate the demise of “democratic” Israel. (more…)

An Exercise in Political Logic: A Challenge to American Zionists

Filed under: Democratic MethodsRepresentationThe Diaspora — eidelberg @ 4:54 am Edit This

1. It is well known that Ehud Olmert, who is primarily responsible for Israel’s defeat in the Second Lebanese War, is the most inept and least respected prime minister in Israel’s history.

2. Therefore, in view of the emerging nuclear threat from Iran and the proximate threat of its proxies, Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, Mr. Olmert is a clear and present danger to Israel’s survival. (more…)

Kudos for Caroline

Filed under: Democratic MethodsThe DiasporaBELIEFS & PERSPECTIVESCURRENT ISSUES — eidelberg @ 7:28 am Edit This

Our gallant and gifted political analyst, Caroline Glick, Deputy Managing editor of The Jerusalem Post, has called for a popular uprising against the Olmert government. Her December 8, 2006 article “Jews Wake Up!” focuses on the existential threat looming over Israel by Iran’s nuclear development, which may yield nuclear weapons as early as March 2007, four months away.

What is more, some experts say that Iran, given the increasing range of its missiles, may soon have the ability to nuke European and even American cities! Hence Glick is all the more dismayed by the statement of incoming Secretary of Defense Robert Gates that the U.S. cannot guarantee that Iran will not attack Israel with nuclear weapons. (more…)

Helping the Jewish Refugees Rebuild Their Lives

CAMPAIGN LAUNCH: A Message From Friends of Gush Katif

More than ten months after their tragic expulsion from Gush Katif and northern Samaria, most of the expellees still have not received the compensation promised them by the Israeli Government. And, the major American Jewish organizations, as a whole, have ignored their plight and welfare. Since the organized Jewish community is not assisting these needy Jews financially, we as individuals must provide the necessary aid. To that end, and as announced yesterday on the ZOA Middle East Report radio program (available at www.zoaphilly.org), I hereby announce the email launch of the Friends of Gush Katif Jewish Refugee Fund, from which 100% of the dollars raised will go directly to the expellees, through the registered 501C(3) charitable fund, “Friends of Gush Katif.” (more…)

American Zionist Organizations

Filed under: The DiasporaBELIEFS & PERSPECTIVESCURRENT ISSUES — eidelberg @ 7:49 am Edit This

Watching the many standing ovations Ehud Olmert received when he addressed a joint session of the American Congress and spoke of his so-called Realignment Plan—which would dispossess and displace 50 to 100 thousand Jews in Judea and Samaria—it occurred to me that those standing ovations were living proof that American Zionist organizations have no significant impact on U.S. foreign policy regarding the Israel-Arab conflict.

The leaders of these Zionist organizations must surely realize that all their noble efforts have not diminished the American government’s commitment to a Palestinian state, hence, to a tortured future for the Jewish people. (more…)

Assimilation: Its Basic Causes

Filed under: JudaismZionism/NationalismThe Diaspora — eidelberg @ 9:17 pm Edit This

“Are American Jews Disappearing?” is the lead article in a recent issue of the magazine New York. One could readily substitute “French” or “English” Jews in the title, for assimilation and intermarriage are widespread throughout the Diaspora. Prominent Jews were interviewed, but none seems to have explored the basic causes of Jewish assimilation in America.

Inasmuch as assimilation is most rampant among college graduates, the first basic cause should be obvious, namely, the doctrine of cultural relativism that has long dominated American education. Students immersed in the social sciences or in the humanities are taught that religion is not a matter of objective truth but of cultural conditioning or of personal preference. It follows that Judaism is no more valid than any another religion. Hence why be Jewish? (more…)
