ISRAEL’S COWED LEADERS BETRAY THEIR DEAD & LIVING: JEWISH JUSTICE DENIED. CAPITULATING (AGAIN) TO OBAMA’S DICTATES! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

DURING a “hot” war casualties are a given, however tragic. Oftentimes civilians accidentally get caught in the crossfire, yet when dealing with Arab/Muslim forces they eschew all “norms/rules of war”. They purposefully place their own in harms way and abuse them as “human shields” for cannon fodder. Media and political sympathy is their “tactic” of choice, as the dead bodies of their civilians pile up for effect. In fact, they target Jewish civilians for sport, not unlike ducks at a shooting range. We all know this by now.

Yes, soldiers are supposed to be the front line defense, as such the risks they take are understood and appreciated, at least they should be. However, when it comes to Israel’s leaders they have little sense of right and wrong, whether involving their citizen soldiers or civilians. JEWISH JUSTICE, if you will.

In relation to Lebanon, Israel and its northern neighbor are in a “cold state of war”, though UN resolution 1701, laid down in 2006, isn’t worth the paper it is written on. Israel’s leaders opine otherwise, but we know better. In fact, had Israel’s derelict leaders taken Lebanon’s act of war (in 2006) to its rightful conclusion, Hezbollah would NOT be in control of Lebanon, and with an arsenal tenfold more lethal than before the “cessation” of hostilities allowed them to regroup and rearm! 

As noted:

Resolution 1701 (2006) Adopted by the Security Council at its 5511th meeting, on 11 August 2006 The Security Council, Recalling all its previous resolutions on Lebanon, in particular resolutions 425 (1978), 426 (1978), 520 (1982), 1559 (2004), 1655 (2006) 1680 (2006) and 1697 (2006), as well as the statements of its President on the situation in Lebanon, in particular the statements of 18 June 2000 (S/PRST/2000/21), of 19 October 2004 (S/PRST/2004/36), of 4 May 2005 (S/PRST/2005/17), of 23 January 2006 (S/PRST/2006/3) and of 30 July 2006 (S/PRST/2006/35), Expressing its utmost concern at the continuing escalation of hostilities in Lebanon and in Israel since Hizbollah’s attack on Israel on 12 July 2006, which has already caused hundreds of deaths and injuries on both sides, extensive damage to civilian infrastructure and hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons, Emphasizing the need for an end of violence, but at the same time emphasizing the need to address urgently the causes that have given rise to the current crisis, including by the unconditional release of the abducted Israeli soldiers….

To wit, when a member of the Lebanese army ( Hezbollah actually controls the gov’t, but no matter…) murders an IDF soldier through sniper fire – and ongoing attempts to attack Israel continues unabated – all the while Navy Master Sgt. Shlomi Cohen, 31 was well within Israeli territory, then all “accommodations” should be off. Plain and simple, picking off Israeli soldiers is an act of war, or so one would believe.

HOWEVER, spineless leaders ALWAYS revert true to form, leading to the path of least resistance, even as they feign braggadocio and full blown bluster…huffing and puffing to blow the (enemy’s) house down. Bull crap.

The above is not to suggest that full scale operations should ensue, but targeted operations are a must. At the very least, the political echelon has a duty, a moral obligation (to order its military) to exact JUSTICE for the blood of its fallen soldier(s). Not just for the family of the slain, but for the entire Jewish nation. Does honor bound even resonate among Israel’s leadership? Not at all.

DEBKAfile Special Report December 16, 2013
Israeli and Lebanese liaison officers met with UNIFIL Monday, Dec. 16, to clarify the circumstances in which a Lebanese soldier Sunday shot dead Navy Master Sgt. Shlomi Cohen, 31, from Afula, while he was driving past the northern Israeli town of Rosh Hanikra.
At the end of the meeting, the Israel Defense Forces officers appeared ready to accept the Lebanese explanation that a member of its armed forces acted on his own initiative and “did not consult his station before carrying out the attack,” claiming it was a one-time incident. The soldier, they said, had been taken to the Defense Ministry offices in Beirut for interrogation.
DEBKAfile: The Lebanese account of the incident did not clear up the questions surrounding the attack, although Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon insisted earlier Monday that Israel would demand explanations of how it happened, whether it was a “rogue” attack and how the soldier was being disciplined. The minister wanted to hear what the Lebanese army was doing to prevent this sort of incident recurring.

 

Our military sources stress that Israel’s willingness to be fobbed off with lame Lebanese explanations is bound to have a negative effect on its posture of deterrence, broadcasting weakness in the face of its avowed enemies Iran, Hizballah, and Syria – especially since this was the second shooting attack from Lebanon in three days. Thursday, Dec. 12, cross-border gunfire at Israeli soldiers by another Lebanese soldier who apparently “forgot to consult” his superiors, was allowed to go without response, with the IDF spokesman speaking vaguely of “errant fire from Lebanese huntsmen” – although a fierce rainstorm was raging at the time.

Our sources report that the US, the UN and France, turned the heat on Jerusalem during the day to prevent the military encounter across the Israeli-Lebanese border from escalating into a major clash. Israel for its part was mum about the details of the event.

The IDF avoided disclosing why and who was responsible for the late Master Sgt Shlomi Cohen being ordered to turn around on his way home to Afula and take on an undisclosed mission along the Lebanese border, without being properly equipped. {Blogger’s Note: this is hardly the first time an IDF soldier died due to lack of proper equipment & backup!}

The first DEBKAfile report on the attack appeared Sunday.. The IDF confirmed Sunday night, Dec. 15 that an Israeli soldier, The soldier, Navy Master Sgt. Shlomi Cohen, 31, from Afula, was killed in the Rosh Hanikra region opposite Ras Naqoura when a Lebanese soldier fired on his vehicle. The military spokesman earlier reported the Lebanese soldier had fired 6-10 rounds, after which Lebanese soldiers poured into the area. The spokesman said Israel takes a grave view of the incident and has summoned reinforcements to the border region.  “We are ready for any step and reserve the right to retaliate at the right place and time,” he said.

The Lebanese army announced that “contact was lost with a Lebanese soldier,” believed to be the sniper,without explaining whether the soldier was thought to have been captured by Israel or fled. Also claimed was that an IDF patrol had crossed into Lebanon and was fired on by Lebanese troops, after which Israel air force planes flew over southern Lebanon.

In another incident in the Sidon area further north, two Lebanese military positions or checkpoints were attacked. A Lebanese soldier and four attackers were killed. In one attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up. Both took place in the al-Awwali district of northern Sidon, at the same time as the flare-up on the Israeli border further south. Heavy Lebanese military movements were sighted after the attacks. The Jund Al-Sham and other Al Qaeda-linked organizations in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain Hilwa outside Sidon went on a high state of preparedness.

The IDF is investigating to find out if the Lebanese soldier who attacked the Israeli patrol was connected with the Sidon assailants. DEBKAfile’s military and counterterrorism sources say that if the two events turn out to be connected, it would constitute a coordinated attack by the same terrorist group on the IDF across the Israeli border and the Lebanese army in southern Lebanon. Before midnight Sunday, the UNIFIL spokesman reported a serious incident in the Ras al-Naqoura and Serra sectors and called for restraint by Israeli and Lebanese commanders. He gave no details of the incident.

All day Monday, Washington leaned heavily on Israel’s government and military leaders to hold back from a military strike to punish the Lebanese hands behind the shooting dead of Navy Master Sgt. Shlomi Cohen Sunday, Dec. 15. The Obama administration was anxious to avert a major flare-up that might jeopardize its plans for dealing with the Syrian war in cooperation with Tehran.

 

BOTTOM LINE: Fealty to normless democracy, in juxtaposition to normative democracy, stops Israel’s top echelon from reaching for the jugular and finally ! declaring VICTORY over Israel’s sworn enemies. The military has the skill and the firepower to end the madness, that’s not the issue. Instead, the political leadership eschews VICTORY and brings the Jewish nation/people (bowing) on its knees to Washington’s dictates. Acceding to the demands of others has taken precedence over executing JUSTICE, without which there is no moral authority to govern. 

החייל שנהרג – Below is Navy Master Sgt. Shlomi Cohen, 31, murdered in cold blood. May his blood be avenged. May Israel’s leaders grow balls. May JEWISH JUSTICE prevail, proving that Jewish blood isn’t cheap! May his family be comforted by all those near and far!

UPDATE: Nuclear Iran A Foregone Outcome: A Merging Of The Islamist-in-Chief’s Intentions & Iran’s Hitlerite Regime. The North Korean Model/Template…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Islamic spinmeisters, most especially Iran’s theocratic terror regime, run circles around the west, and the mullahs and their mouthpieces are its master weavers. Checkmate. HOWEVER, without a receptive audience it would be impossible to keep up with the tapestry’s weaving until all loose threads are neatly threaded together. As is said, it takes ‘two to tango’.

But when a nuclear ‘death dance’ is the end point, it is hardly hyperbole to suggest the obvious: the leader of the heretofore free world is aiding them to the finish line and acts as a shield for their nuclear power status. Now, before we go any further, we must internalize: Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s surrogates have each played a major part, chief among them Iranian born Valerie Jarrett, his right hand woman and alter ego. Simply put, she is capable of upending western civilization. She is THAT dangerous. THAT (ideologically) driven.

Chuck Hagel, the man leading America’s defense – holy smokes – is DEEPLY in bed with Iran’s aspirations, so much so, immediately after Hagel left the U.S. Senate he was hired to shill for Iran’s puppet masters! Hmm. How many are aware of their dangerous liaison?

John Brennan’s proclivities couldn’t be any more transparent, and his absolute Omerta, regarding his determination not to connect Islam + terror, precludes the CIA’s penetration of Islamic jihadists. As a result, protecting the American homeland is a complete illusion. He is a clear and present danger – to America AND Israel.

Moving right along to a very dangerous anti-American, Samantha Powers, as she set the stage for the current firestorms via her R2P bastardization, cloaking the mantra ‘responsibility to protect’ within a jihadist umbrella. Nefarious. Basically, she helped arm Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood terrorists through the toppling of Qadaffi. So, in a nutshell, she rounds out the anti-American crew to a dangerous foursome, notwithstanding all the damage accrued under Hillary’s watch, with mobbed up Sisterhood diva Huma Abedin at her sideas they helped empower the Brotherhood Mafia throughout the Mid East, Africa and all the way into Washington’s recesses. Yet, while others (through various Islamic/Iranian ‘think tanks’) are deeply involved, the main players are highlighted herein.

Thus, as the world watches on in horror, as Washington & Eurabia trip over themselves to embrace the newly ‘modified’ Iran – through the ‘election’ of snake charmer Rouhani – some of us know what’s coming down the nuclear pike.

Washington and Europe rush headlong towards accepting a nuclear Iran

DEBKAfile Special Report September 24, 2013
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani lands in New York

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani lands in New York

The Iranian delegation arrived at the UN General Assembly in New York this week to an enthusiastic Western welcome led by the Obama administration, without having rescinded one iota of its aggressive policies or nuclear ambitions.

“We welcome an Iran ready to engage seriously through that (diplomatic) process given that it represents the international community’s commitment to hold Iran accountable, but also being open to a diplomatic resolution.”

This convoluted message was how Ben Rhodes, US Deputy National Security Adviser, referred Monday, Sept. 23, to the US Secretary of State John Kerry’s get-together with Iranian Mohammad Javad Zarif Thursday, along with foreign ministers of the five world powers.

Their acclaimed purpose is to test Tehran’s willingness for progress in nuclear negotiations. But before this test, the Obama administration agreed to the highest-level face-to-face contact between the US and Iran since the 1979 Iranian revolution.
Rhodes did not shut the door on a meeting, even a brief one, between President Barack Obama and President Hassan Rouhani at this week’s annual gathering of world leaders in New York.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague and European Union Foreign Executive Catherine Ashton had already met the new Iranian foreign minister Monday, after which Ashton commented that she had found him resolved to go forward with talks (on Iran’s nuclear program) and “many things flow from that.”

How to account for this burst of eagerness in Washington and Europe for a rapprochement with the Revolutionary Republic of Iran?
Has Tehran agreed to give up its nuclear weapon program? The new president and even supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei say their government will never develop a nuclear bomb. So what if they said so? Have their words caused Iran’s nuclear facilities, open and concealed, to suddenly vanish like a desert mirage?

Has Iran announced itself ready to open up all its nuclear facilities to international watchdog inspections? Will Rouhani make this offer when he addresses the UN Assembly Wednesday?
Has Iran promised to stop developing ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads?
And what about the Islamic Republic’s long sponsorship of state terrorism against Israeli and Jewish targets across the world? Have those death-dealing networks been recalled home?

And has Tehran started pulling its troops out of Syria and terminated its partnership in butchery with Bashar Assad, given up its control of Lebanon or stopped sending rockets to Hizballah?

Has anyone noticed that Iran is building a Red Sea Naval base at Port Sudan facing the coast of Saudi Arabia? Or that a large-scale munitions production and distribution center for supplying Iran’s Middle East allies is going up in Sudan?

And finally, has Iran abandoned its ambition to wipe Israel off the map, or stopped denying the Nazi Holocaust?

The slick new president easily ducked the second question by saying: “I’m not a historian.”
He and members of his regime have suddenly been given free license to fill the op-ed pages of important Western media with smooth propaganda for Western audiences.
But while polishing his civilized aspect towards the West, Rouhani made sure the day before he flew to New York to display Iran’s steel teeth with its largest display ever of missiles with a range of 2,000 kilometers. The 30 weapons on show included 12 Sejil and 18 Ghadr missiles which can reach Israel and US Gulf bases – although Rouhani stated with a straight face that they were “for defensive purposes only.”

The turbaned Iranian president has an obvious motive for gulling the West into accepting the Islamic Republic’s conversion from a regime bent on “exporting the Islamic revolution” to a lover of peace: He was elected to end the sanctions crippling the country, without giving up the regime’s objectives.
It is less clear what moves President Obama to swallow the Iranian bait and go for a historic US rapprochement with the revolutionary republic. On every occasion, he protests that Israel’s security is his overriding concern. Yet he is rushing to accept a nuclear Iran whose avowed ambition is to destroy Israel.

Under their slick new façade, the ayatollahs have not changed their spots. Washington has.
Sources close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu say he is determined to tear the false veil off Iran’s face – even if he is a lone voice, when he addresses the UN later this month.

Last Thursday, Netanyahu tried throwing water on Rouhani’s claims that Iran’s nuclear program was peaceful, calling them fraudulent. He dismissed Iran’s offer to engage in diplomacy as false “media spin,” which should not fool anyone.
But no one in the West was listening. And at home, people were asking what happened to Netanyahu’s solemn pre-election pledge to stop Iran attaining a nuclear bomb…followed up herein – Obama launches diplomacy with Tehran after quietly accepting Iran’s current nuclear capabilities DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 25, 2013.

LEST anyone believes that Jerusalem is taken in by the above sideshow, think again. NEVERTHELESS, said clear eyed thinking, plus the price of a NYC subway token, will amount to less than nothing. Most significantly, PM Netanyahu can stand before the world and offer all the corollaries/proofs of North Korea’s games in juxtaposition to Iran’s, plus use every rhetorical flourish to boot, but it will just be a sideshow. Sach ha’kol, at the end of it all, once again, he can also hold up as many neon ‘red line’ bomb graphs as his two hands can muster, yet, Iran will become a nuclear power.

How do we know this? There is no other guide but history. In this regard, his inconsequential ‘red line’ from last go around has come and gone. In its stead lies MANY more centrifuges, as they spin Iran to bomb making capacity, while they possess a plutonium track as a full throttle fall-back plan. Unfathomably, Israel’s leadership, tasked with protecting the Jewish patrimony, not only failed miserably in its ultimate task, but continues to feign that they have the mettle to do what they must. They don’t. Spineless leaders always revert true to form.

Most significantly, those who promise another Holocaust will now have the ability to execute their ‘final solution’. And history will vilify all those involved, but none more so than PM Netanyahu, as he sold the Jewish nation (half of world Jewry) a bill of electoral goods, swearing that under his watch Iran would never become a nuclear power. Really. Well, truth dare be told, he sold out to a regime in Washington which wants nothing more than to finally ‘solve the problem’, despite their lying rhetoric. Obama Inc. may as well wave cheer leading signs in Iran’s direction, as they cross the finish line.

AGAIN, Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s actions have led in only one direction. PM Netanyahu wasted his entire Premiership on ‘hopes, promises and transparency’. The onus is atop his head. History will condemn him. As it should.

UPDATE: US appeasement of Iran drowns Israel’s military option against nuclear Iran or chemical Syria
