The Jewish State

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.

Justice for Jonathan Pollard

“Mutual guarantee” is one of the foundation stones of Jewish morality.

Jonathan Pollard is now serving an unprecedented sentence – longer than anyone else convicted for similar crimes – after he acted on behalf of the security of the State of Israel. There is a political consensus in Israel that Pollard’s sentence has gone way beyond any logical punishment and that he must be released immediately. We call on our friends all over the world to work tirelessly on behalf of Jonathan’s release and his return home to Israel.

Yom Hevron 2013

On August 5th, 2013, the France chapter of the Likud held a special tour of Maarat HaMachpela (the Tomb of the Patriarchs) and the Jewish Quarter of Hebron.

The tour was organized and led by Mr. Jack Kupfer , a member of the board of the World Zionist Organization and the chair of the Friends of the World Likud.

Over 500 members of France’s Jewish community joined the tour and they were visibly moved by their visit to Maarat HaMachpela and the flags parade that took place in the ancient streets of Hebron.

Yaakov Hagoel, head of the World Zionist Organization’s Department for Countering Anti-Semitism greeted the enthusiastic crowd and encouraged them to increase aliya to Israel from France.

In his remarks, Jack Kupfer noted that the presence of hundreds of Jews in France is the best possible answer to the policy of boycott and delegitimization enacted by the European Union against the communities.

The conquered resistance

 

By 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.

70 years ago, in 1943, the majority of the around half a million Jews that lived in the Warsaw Ghetto had been deported to the extermination camp of Treblinka to be executed. A handful of 750 brave Jews decided to rise up in arms against the Nazis. The battle was so unequal that they had no possibility of success. The rebellion was crushed and the ghetto destroyed. But this uprising was the first and the most important and it symbolizes the Jewish heroism, dignity and resistance to Nazism.

Several events have been held to honor these heroes. The heroic role played by the Z.O.B. (Zydowska Organizacja Bodjwa), the “Organization of Jewish Fighters”, led by the brave Mordejai Anilevich is remembered. This organization was made up by leftist Zionist parties, the Zionist Center and the Bund, and was founded in July 1942.

In general, the Z.Z.W. (Zidowsky Zwizaek Wojksow), the “Jewish Military Organization” founded by the Zionist movement Betar, and other branches of the Revisionist party of Jabotinsky are mentioned. Read more…

The real catastrophe

Dr. Gerardo Stuczynski

By Dr. Gerardo Stuczynski

According to the Gregorian calendar on 14th May we will commemorate a new anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel. The Palestinians call that same day the “Nakba”, that is to say “the catastrophe”.

The War for Independence in May 1948, which meant emancipation for the Jews, was the origin of the refugees’ drama for the Palestinians, one of the core points of the conflict.The Arab countries did not accept the United Nations Partition Plan and declared an extermination war. According to Israeli historiography, the aggressors urgeשד שd the Arab population that resided there to leave the territories, promising that they would be able to come back soon, when their victorious armies had achieved their objective of driving the Jews into the sea.
