Public demonstration in Uruguay

By Dr. Gerardo Stuczynski , Uruguay

July 27th in the sunny and cold winter afternoon of Montevideo, at the gorgeous avenue of Pocitos, took place a manifestation on favor of Israel in its military confrontation with the terrorist organization Hamas. The “Zioniost Uruguayan Federation” and the “Uruguyan Zionist Organization” called to solidiarize with Israel, appointment that attended thousands of Uruguayans, with flags of both countries Uruguay and Israel.

With the leading of the president of this federation Michel Grauser, spoke in the name of both institutes Mr. Sergio Dodel president of the “Uruguyan Zionist Organization”, who expressed: “we came here to manifest our support to the State of Israel in its war against Hamas”.

During the applause he explained that: “Israel is not attacking, it is defending… Their goal is to stop the rain of missiles and to accomplish that it has to damage the terrorist infrastructures and missiles launchers. And it is doing this by adopting every possible measure to avoid civilian victims. We are profoundly sorry about this human tragedy; it affects us each and every one of the victims of both Israeli and Palestinian. But we have to emphasize that the responsibility of this war, and victims that we cry for, lies on who did everything to provoke it.

Israel uses their weapons to protect the civilians, while Hamas uses the civilians to protect their weapons”. The words of Dodel were interrupted in many opportunities by cheers and applause of approval on the message.

Before the cameras of all TV channels of the country, Dodel conclude saying: “Israel always kept one hand stretched for peace and good neighborliness. Unfortunately it had to wield back to defend and persevere its existence. Jewish people, faithful to their ideals, won’t give up peace. It will perseveringly continue to pursue their dream: a future of peace, for our children, for life!”.

At the behest of local news, Gerardo Stuczynski, voicer of O.S.U. for the event, answered all questions about the feelings of the Jewish community of Uruguay, the situation of the Uruguayan community living in Israel and he clarified on the sad occurrences that develop at the area, explaining the true reasons of the conflict and its development.

Right of any Jew to show solidarity with Israel

After seeing publicity about a proposed “motorcade” of the “Buraq Riders” planning to drive through the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, it was clear that these Muslim bikers intended to drive through the traditionally Jewish suburbs of Johannesburg on Shabbat, when many Jews usually are strolling the streets with their families after attending shul.

Mike Fisher is the chair of the Joburg branch of LIKUD SA

I and a number of other Jewish activists, decided to show our presence and be highly visible with Israeli flags, to get the message across that Jews would not be intimidated, nor cower behind locked doors.

While IDF soldiers are dying for us, we felt that the very least we could do, especially after seeing Jews standing up to intimidation throughout the world, was to stand up and show our solidarity with Israel, to show that the days of Jews turning the other cheek, were long gone.

RIGHT: Mike Fisher proudly displays his flag and waits for the motorcade that never came

As it turned out, the “motorcade” of, reportedly a couple of hundred vehicles, never got to Glenhazel, but did drive through suburbs such as Hyde Park, Oaklands and Waverley.

We were instructed by the CSO to leave, as the group came closer. We left and returneda few minutes later to our spot, with flags.

During this time, one of the community members, perhaps walking home from shul or a family meal, confronted us, asking why were flying an Israeli flag, stating that he saw this as an attempt to provoke the group into violence.

I explained that if anybody was provoking anybody, it was the riders riding through Jewish suburbs, especially on Shabbat. I further asked the gentleman why he thought we should not display our pride in standing with Israel. He replied that this was provocative.

At that moment, another very religious family walked past in frum garb. I pointed them out to him and asked him if he didn’t think that they would view (the bikers) as just as provocative? He responded that that was a symbol of Judaism, not Israel.

I asked him if he really thought there was a difference and proclaimed that anti-Israel activities were just another form of anti-Semitism.

I asked him what he thought Menachem Begin would have preferred us to do and he conceded.

I must stress that all through the time we stood there, numerous cars passed, hooting in support and giving us the thumbs-up sign. Also, a group of passing “Breslevs” cheered us on with “Am Yisrael Chai”.

Kidnapped Israeli Teenagers – A Palestinian View

by Mudar Zahran, Likud South Africa


June 25, 2014, http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org

You cannot be running TV, social media and newspapers encouraging terror and the murdering of Jews and then claim you are innocent when acts of terror happen.

The PA is now officially united with Hamas, a terror organization that pledges to destroy a sovereign nation and establish a Muslim caliphate. Financing the PA is therefore financing terrorism. PA terror has become a major industry. Is this what the West is so breathless to support?

Would the U.S. or Europe agree to give its cities and parts of its soil for a terrorist organization to establish a country the way U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has been pushing Israel to give up most of the West Bank and return to pre-1967 borders?

Can we Palestinians blame Israel when the wall never existed before Hamas and the PLO started launching terror attacks on Israel on a daily basis?

Instead of financing the PA leaders’ lavish lifestyles, the world should start questioning the PA’s institutionalized incitement of terror and hatred to my people which they do every day through media, education and religious institutions. For the sake of both Israel and the Palestinians, it is not Israel but the PA that should be boycotted.

“Most people are mad at those who kidnapped the kids. When they commit such acts, we rejoice, celebrate for Israel’s suffering, then sit down and worry if we will be allowed into Israel for work and medical treatment. This has to stop, for our own sake.”   –  Palestinian businessman

While Israel prays for the safe return of three Israel teenagers kidnapped by terrorists last week, although Palestinian Authority [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas tepidly defended the search for the teens — comments for which many Palestinians attacked him — the official PA daily wrote that “Israel itself is behind the ‘kidnapping’,” alleging that the three boys were soldiers when in fact they were students, two in high school, and the kidnappings were celebrated by people, glorifying the kidnappers and passing out sweets. The Fatah Facebook page then published a cartoon showing the three kidnapped teenagers as rats bearing the star of David with the caption “The Master Stroke”.

Keep in mind that the PA exerts extreme monitoring and control over social media used by Palestinians in the West Bank. A Palestinian man was jailed for six months for “liking” an anti-PA post on Facebook. The PA, therefore, is fully responsible for encouraging the celebrations of the kidnappings over Palestinian social media. Read more…

“Operations Brother’s Keeper”

The Likud branch in Russia held an event in support of the kidnapped teenagers and our IDF soldiers.

The event took place at two venues: in front of the Palestinian Mission and then in the streets of Moscow to raise awareness and support for the kidnapped youngsters. The people they met voiced their support for the immediate release of the teenagers and for continuing the fight against terrorism.

World Likud members throughout the world are working hard to increase solidarity and are hoping for the quick and safe return of our boys.

The Jewish State

Dr. StuczynskiBy Dr. Gerardo Stuczynski , Uruguay

Doctor in Law and Social Sciences; Former President of the Latin American Zionist Confederation, currently serving as Secretary General and member of the Extended World Zionist Executive.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the Jewish State. In view of the repeated refusal to do so by the Palestinians, President Shimon Peres had no better idea than to claim that said recognition is unnecessary.

 

However, this is not a question of semantics; it is a substantial issue. When confronted with the illness, Peres is satisfied eliminating the symptoms. But if the diagnosis is accurate, the medication that conceals the symptoms can turn out to be deadly if it allows the real illness to develop.

 

It was not Netanyahu the person who introduced this requirement. Ehud Olmert, his predecessor, who belonged to the same party and had differences concerning his negotiating position, also demanded such recognition in the Annapolis talks.

Tu B’Shvat in the Jordan Valley

Over this past Tu B’Shvat (January 16), we organized tours of the Jordan Valley followed by festive tree planting. Hundreds of Likud activists took part and visited the historic sites in the Jordan Valley. The tree planting took place at the Jordan Valley Monument and was followed by a mass rally in support of the local communities. This Zionist show of strength was the perfect answer to those who are questioning our natural and historic connection to the Land of Israel.
