A Special Message of Interest from Conservative Majority PAC
TERRORIST-LED PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY
TO TARGET ISRAEL
DON'T LET THE TERRORISTS USE
PETITION CONGRESS FOR S.34,
URGENT ACTION ALERT: Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki just announced that PA leadership is working to RUSH charges against Israel for "war crimes" with the International Criminal Court!
The warnings made by Netanyahu in his historic address are swiftly coming to pass – we MUST galvanize Congress to take action before it is too late!
"The court won't focus only on the last Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, but would look into all what it considers as a war crime or a crime against humanity," Al-Maliki said in an interview.
The "war crimes" in question of course are last summer's successful Operation Protective Edge defensive response to Hamas terrorists lobbing rockets at Israeli civilians, and kidnapping and killing Israeli teenagers!
Between Obama's disastrous deal-making with Iran and now this, Israel is being battered…
DEMAND CONGRESS STAND WITH ISRAEL AT ONCE!
This aggression by the PA is further twisting the knife, as Israel one week beforehand decided to release December, January and February fees frozen to protest the PA's intention to drag Israel through a "war crimes" trial on the understanding that the PA WOULD NOT DO SO!
AND WE AREN'T HEARING A PEEP OF OUTRAGE FROM WASHINGTON!
On Dec. 31, 2014, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced his intent to join the International Criminal Court. In response, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), chair of the House Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee called for Congress to "block funds to the PA and to any U.N. entity that recognizes a non-existent State of Palestine, to make it clear to Abu Mazen that there will be consequences to his schemes at the United Nations and other international organizations like the International Criminal Court."
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) said, "The PA should be reminded that the recent appropriations bill signed into law will restrict U.S. funding if they attempt to initiate an investigation through the ICC."
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters days later that the Palestinian Authority's attempt to join the ICC could have "implications" for U.S. assistance, acknowledging that "Congress has a great deal of power in that regard."AND THEN Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced S. 34, the "Defunding Palestinian Foreign Aid Act of 2015" JUST IN CASE.
IF passed, approximately $400 MILLION in U.S. aid to the terrorist Palestinian Authority will be abruptly cut off unless and until the PA prudently withdraws its request to join the International Criminal Court (ICC).
CONGRESS MUST PASS THIS BILL, PUT IT ON OBAMA'S DESK AND OVERRIDE OBAMA'S VETO IF NECESSARY!
Only the U.N. Security Council has the authority to suspend investigations launched by the ICC according to Al-Maliki… He also says PA officials are seeking to bypass any possible U.S. veto by making friends with other permanent members, Russia AND China!
The United States pays for more nearly a quarter of the U.N.'s total annual budget – and Congress controls the power of the purse for those allocations…
NOW is the time to EXERCISE THAT POWER and STOP PA TERRORISTS from going after ISRAEL in the ICC, the International Criminal Court!
CONGRESS MUST ACT TO DEFEND THE JEWISH STATE, AND SECURE RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL AFTER OBAMA'S BACKSTABBING BETRAYALS TOWARD OUR ALLY!
BLAST YOUR PETITIONS TO CAPITOL HILL AND HOME DISTRICT OFFICES AT ONCE!
Barack Obama is still reacting badly to the news from Israel, clearly stung by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party winning a resounding victory in the Israeli election.
Netanyahu decisively bested Zionist Union party's Labor leader Isaac Herzog and his running mate, Tzipi Livni. The Zionist Union platform centered around efforts to placate Barack Obama, and resume negotiations with the Palestinians – and in retaliation for his humiliating political defeat, Obama is now threatening to allow Israel's enemies to attack her with impunity at the U.N.!
It is IMPERATIVE that those who love Israel stand with her NOW and show NO WEAKNESS…
PRAYER and Netanyahu's successful last minute appeals to UNITY, STRENGTH and SOVEREIGNTY for the Jewish State prevailed – but NOW socialist leaders in the U.N., Europe and the U.S. are piling on to demean, denigrate and marginalize Netanyahu as a MENACE to "peace"!
Thank God for this great victory, and DEMAND the U.S. Congress REBUKE and DEFY the pro-Palestinian left – especially and including Barack Obama!
Netanyahu spoke bluntly to his people, and successfully aimed at reaching Israelis who still understand the national security of the Jewish State must trump all other considerations. He stated clearly he will never establish a Palestinian founded on duplicity, violence and Islamic supremacism – "negotiated" with those who refuse to respect Israel's right to exist. And he warned that the Israeli left's funding from foreign governments, notoriously Obama's OneVoice front washed through the U.N., were driving more Israeli Arabs to the polls – and Israeli right-wingers had to turn out vote to counteract them. The Arab Joint List confirmed Netanyahu's alarm, with the Arab Israeli vote scoring third over-all.
The future of Israel in a sea of Islamic adversaries REMAINS in peril – pray for the Jewish State, and MAKE CERTAIN that Congress knows YOU Stand With Israel against her enemies! It becomes more clear by the moment that numbered among those enemies must be Barack Obama…
Obama's hostility to Israel and his agenda for destruction of the Jewish State are undeniable. His unheard of sabotage of the sitting government in these national elections in Israel, mobilizing the hostile Arab vote and seeking to unseat his strategic nemesis Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, plus other recent actions, are telling indicators that Obama is determined to shatter the Israel-U.S. alliance.
While I am concerned by the precedent set in the Republican Senate conference's open letter to Iran leaders, their action was a provoked response to Obama's unremitting pressure and naked aggression against ordered liberty – in America AND Israel!
Congress MUST strike back with all its Constitutional powers to exact severe punishment on Obama and his abusive administration! BE HEARD ON CAPITOL HILL TODAY!
Obama has attacked the current prime minister of Israel and done everything he can to bring down his government, because Netanyahu refuses to bow to Obama, in policy or personal exchanges. Now, Netanyahu must form a new governing coalition – and the Obama administration is ALREADY at work undermining him with cheap shots and ugly comments!
Israel's parliamentary politics are complex and we may pray that Netanyahu – for all Obama's execrable interference – will prevail smoothly in the arduous post-election process that is required to build a governing coalition. If the Left interferes with Herzog, beholden to Obama's own political operatives, the world faces a weaker Israel much more malleable to Obama's agenda of surrendering Israeli land to Arab Islamist enemies, and an emboldened Iran.
An internal U.S. position paper regarding Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that was leaked to the largest national newspaper in Israel Yediot Aharonot made clear the direction Obama intends to go if he can gain ANY foothold in the Israeli cabinet to act as his accomplice. That document called for Israel to withdraw to the utterly indefensible 1949 armistice lines, with only minor revisions.
Israeli strategic analyst Caroline Glick framed it succinctly – "unofficially, a far greater electoral drama is unfolding. The choice is not between Netanyahu and Herzog-Livni. It is between Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama…" Thank GOD, it seems that a warrior for Israel's survival will lead the next government…
The Obama administration hostility against Netanyahu's continuing tenure as prime minister, like Netanyahu's speech to our joint session of Congress, because of Obama's bad faith in the region AND his monstrous ego, has become unavoidably implicated not only in various dynamics of Israel's elections, but also global geopolitics – because the stakes are so high.
This consortium of former security brass that banded together to elect a leftist government led by Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni, which is collaborating with Obama political operatives in hopes of gaining power, accused Netanyahu of "destroying Israel's relations with the U.S." The implication was that a government led by Herzog and Livni would restore Israel's ties to America.
Obama holds sole responsibility for the deterioration of Israel's relations with the U.S. as primary allies. And as Obama's actions and objectives have also made clear, Herzog and Livni at the helm would receive no respite in Obama's pressure to make fatal strategic surrenders. As Glick notes, "Their willingness to make concessions to the Palestinians that Netanyahu refuses to make will merely cause Obama to move the goalposts further down the field. Given his goal of abandoning the U.S. alliance with Israel, no concession that Israel will deliver will suffice."
Simply put, Obama cannot simply deliver Israel to her enemies under Netanyahu; he just might under Herzog-Livni! Thankfully, the Israeli people saw the threat, and responded wisely. Glick earlier observed, "If Netanyahu's speech is a success, Obama's foreign policy will be indefensible…"
And Team Obama KNEW it – and thus had Bibi in their gun sights in this election. NOW Obama's nefarious scheme to elect a compliant dove in Herzog has been DEFEATED, Obama is likely to become even more belligerent towards Netanyahu and Israel. Our Congress knows the truth and MUST challenge Obama over Israel on every front!
There is just no getting around it. Netanyahu's statesmanship is vastly more impressive than Obama's, as is his military and strategic grasp of reality, given his credentials as a combat-tested, twice-wounded special forces commando. The White House wanted at all cost to be rid of Bibi and plainly fears a Likud-led coalition; if Herzog-Livni formed the next government, then Jerusalem would dance to Obama's tune.
But with Netanyahu reelected, the crumbling edifice of Obama's bloody, calamitous Middle East policy will have no props from Israel, so the attacks on Netanyahu and Israel will recommence with renewed fury…
Secretary of State John Kerry made clear the Obama administration's desire to topple Netanyahu last spring during his libelous remarks before the Trilateral Commission, claiming that Israel would automatically and naturally become an apartheid state if she did not surrender Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to the PLO – Jew free – post haste.
In Kerry's exact words, "if there is a change of government [in Israel], or a change of heart, something will happen."
Shortly after Kerry gave his Israel apartheid speech, in a shocking interview to Yediot Aharonot his Middle East mediator Martin Indyk attacked Israel and the character of the Israeli people. Indyk as much as said that to compel Israel to make concessions demanded by the PLO, the Palestinians may need to launch another terror war.
Indyk also threatened that the Palestinians will get their state whether Israel agrees to their terms of not. In his words, "They will get their state in the end – whether through violence or by turning to international organizations." These grotesque attacks were leveled against Israel anonymously, as an unnamed U.S. official. When Indyk's identity was exposed, he was forced to resign his position.
Following his departure from government service he returned to his previous position as vice president of the Brookings Institution and the director of its foreign policy program. Last September, The New York Times reported that the Brookings Institute received a $14.8 million, four-year donation from Qatar, the chief financier of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Obama-ites have done all they can to ensure that the elite media enflame as an "insult" to Obama Netanyahu's address to Congress, even as they proclaimed the March 17 elections to be a referendum on Netanyahu – who has plenty of record to run on. Netanyahu has been in politics for decades, served as prime minister in the rough-and-tumble of Israel's parliamentary government for ten hard years – and had to contend with Obama for six of them. The London's Guardian, the Economist, Israel's Channel 2, The Associated Press, and the Washington Post are all telling readers more or less that "political analysts and journalists are calling this election the 'Bibi referendum.'" Well, "Bibi" did alright – and Obama's rage will be palpable.
Team Obama has overtly characterized relations with Netanyahu as poisoned and in crisis, in order to undermine his government. They have made it clear that fueling a "crisis" atmosphere and facilitating a change of government in Israel has emerged as their preferred path to break the diplomatic logjam with Netanyahu. They have gone so far as intervene directly in the election, sending from the U.S. professional campaign staff advocating for Labor AND washing through Obama State Department grants bringing hundreds of thousands of U.S. taxpayer dollars as "soft" political money attacking Netanyahu. All this WILL INTENSIFY in effort's to sabotage Netanyahu's new government.
But most of this is propaganda lacking substance. So while interaction with Obama is poor, it is up to US and to CONGRESS to demonstrate that U.S.-Israel relations ARE NOT actually in crisis. American ties with the Obama administration might indeed be lacking, but U.S.-Israeli relations go far beyond the administration and extend to the Pentagon, Congress, the business sector and the public. And WE can prove those ties are not frayed or imperiled…
It is URGENT that America and the free world HEAR FIRSTHAND that Netanyahu's analysis of the threat posed by Iran and other Islamic supremacists is being ACTED UPON IN CONGRESS, that Obama's threats of harm to our alliance with Israel are EMPTY, and that MORE THAN EVER Congress is BOLD and COURAGEOUS in Israel's defense!
As it currently stands, it is Iran that has been emboldened against Israel by Obama's fecklessness. It's apparently A-ok for Iran's nuclear negotiators to SCREAM in the face Secretary of State John Kerry in the relentless pursuit of Obama's readily available concessions to Islamic supremacists…
HOWEVER, it is NOT ok for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – OUR ALLY – to ADDRESS CONGRESS on why a nuclear deal with the Ayatollahs' Iran is high-risk, short-sighted foreign policy fraught with sweeping and dangerous consequences.
We need Congress to impress on Obama that his petty ego games reflect a shameful lack of seriousness – as well as posing a national security threat to America!
Obama "undercut" Netanyahu by using leftwing media lapdogs to full advantage with a Sunday news show snub blitz, PLUS a conspicuous absence of the usual top administration officials attending America's pro-Israel lobby ALIPAC during its annual meeting while Netanyahu was in Washington.
Team Obama implausibly claimed it was "inappropriate" for Netanyahu and Obama to meet so close to Israel's March 17 elections… THIS disgusting double standard from an administration that can't be bothered to hide its pro-leftwing opposition, pro-Arab "get out the vote" campaign efforts IN ISRAEL – USING YOUR TAX DOLLARS!
We need YOUR petitions TODAY to DEMAND Congress INVESTIGATE AND PUNISH this OUTRAGEOUS INTERFERENCE!
The boycott by numerous prominent Democrats of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress addressing this crisis was a political ploy that a White House insider says ORIGINATED with and was put in motion by Obama – orchestrated via West Wing "back channels."
And along with an obvious personal resentment by Obama evident toward Netanyahu that lies underneath its ugly tone, the strategic thrust of this boycott was crafted to DEFEAT the Prime Minister at home in elections, as retaliation against Netanyahu's pointed refusal to submit to the dangerous pro-Islam agenda Obama initiated and has relentlessly pursued ever since his 2009 Arab apology tour… Thanks be to God, IT FAILED – but Obama WILL NOT STOP.
Our ally Israel does not have Obama's support and in fact has Obama's ENMITY… Obama now OPENLY works to rupture and unravel the U.S.-Israel alliance of storied history and God's ordinance. Fortunately, the Congress writes the laws – and authorizes the funds. And America's bipartisan support for the Jewish State, always historically strong and unashamed, is mounting as Iran and ISIS continue apace unholy jihad slaughter of innocents.
Your tireless support, your relentless pressure on Congress to stand with Israel remains critical as Israel forms its next government led by Bibi Netanyahu – keep unreliable Washington DC in line!
The Democrats' excuse for the boycott that Speaker Boehner and P.M. Netanyahu "are politicizing" relations with Israel and implicating the Congress inappropriately in Israel's internal affairs by having Netanyahu appear within a few weeks of Israeli elections was a laughable canard…
Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed January 26 in a Hebrew edition article that the largely U.S. foreign funded organization, "OneVoice," is bankrolling the so-called V-15 campaign to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu's national campaign in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. OneVoice is the recipient of grant funds from groups receiving YOUR tax dollars via U.S. government and U.N. multilateral projects!
We already KNOW OneVoice received $350,000 in recent State Department grants. State Department officials insist that funding for OneVoice stopped a month prior to the announcement of the Israeli election. But OneVoice's 2014 Annual Report stated that it would be "embarking on a groundbreaking campaign around the Israeli elections," and that OneV – Victory 2015 would be "promoting popular resistance, state-building and the Arab Peace Initiative, while advocating for an end to the conflict and a two-state solution along the 1967 borders."
One indication of the generous foreign financing is that it has flown in a team of five American campaign experts – including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign's national field director – who will run V-15 out of offices taking up an entire ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather "just not Bibi"! As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign from the Obama hard-Left are able to dodge Israel's campaign finance laws.
Caroline Glick commented via Facebook:
And THAT is not all! U.S. embassy officials in Tel Aviv have been CAUGHT working with Leftist Arab-Israel organization, Givat Haviva. They secured the group last-minute U.S. visas to come LEARN POLITICAL ORGANIZING TECHNIQUES for the May Israeli elections against current, popular Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Progressives in Israel AND in Obamaland USA are desperate to oust Netanyahu in favor of a progressive more sympathetic to the Palestinian Authority terrorist groups Fatah and Hamas! The election results will NOT be end of their efforts to sabotage Netanyahu and pro-defense Likud!
DEMAND that Congress INVESTIGATE AND EXPOSE the abusive use of YOUR tax dollars to campaign against Bibi Netanyahu in Israel!
According to a Washington Free Beacon report, top American diplomats, the deputy mission chief, the CIA station chief and the cultural attaché attended the strategy session with Givat Haviva, part of a coalition of U.S.-funded progressive groups trying to influence the Israeli elections by driving voter turnout among Arab Israelis, who are less likely than Israeli Jews to cast their ballot for Bibi and Leftists.
Once this meeting was made public by the Beacon however, Washington starting clamming up and the State Department's Bureau of Near East Affairs "abruptly cancelled" a scheduled meeting with the group.
"The State Department, including [the Middle East Partnership Initiative], had no involvement in organizing or funding the trip, and will not be meeting with the delegation," said a State Department official AFTER cancelling the meeting.
Ha'aretz already reported how Obama's reelection campaign team and the U.S. nonprofit group OneVoice are CONFIRMED collaborators in the effort to remove the popular (among Israelis) Prime Minister via "nonpartisan get-out-the-vote efforts." Just last year, OneVoice received U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT FUNDING – and they aren't the only ones.
Barack Obama is electioneering in Israel – FULL TILT, NO HOLDS BARRED.
Even with the election results, they will not stop. Obama's using YOUR taxpayer dollars to try and UNDERMINE AND OUST NETANYAHU, OUR ALLY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ISLAMIST TERRORISM AND IN OPPOSING A NUCLEAR IRAN! At the same time his Capitol Hill hacks can't shriek loudly enough about how the GOP is meddling in Israeli politics by inviting Netanyahu to give ONE SPEECH ON THE NEED FOR A GLOBAL STRATEGY TO DEFEAT A GLOBAL THREAT!
YOU CAN STOP ANSWER THIS HYPOCRISY BY STANDING WITH ISRAEL!
Among his first batch of legislation in the New Year, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced S. 34, the Defend Israel by Defunding Palestinian Foreign Aid Act of 2015.
If S. 34 is passed, approximately $400 MILLION in U.S. aid to the terrorist Palestinian Authority will be abruptly cut off unless and until the PA decides to withdraw its position joining the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Palestinian "unity" government has sought ICC member status for the sole purpose of launching a legislative attack on Israel for "war crimes" allegedly committed this past summer – actions where were in fact the mere 'crime' of national SELF DEFENSE.
Along with our need for annihilating ISIS, ENACTING this legislation against the UNIFIED terrorism of HAMAS and the Palestinian Authority it hides behind is a TOP PRIORITY for helping empower Israel to secure herself, and thus stabilizing the Middle East against terrorism!
The Palestinian Authority joined the International Criminal Court on April 1. The Palestinians will be able to sue Israel for war crimes, a move long sought by the PA and one the Israelis have consistently opposed for decades – with American support.
But a complication for the PA is that Hamas itself is now PUBLICLY SHOUTING at Fatah it wants OUT of the "unity" governance DEAL because of unkept power-sharing promises!
With the PA "unity" government starting to splinter and expose its terrorist core, NOW is the time for America's Congress to abandon all pretense and CONFIRM their solidarity with our one democratic Mid-East ally, ISRAEL by SUPPORTING S. 2265!
REMIND WASHINGTON AMERICA DOESN'T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS!
WE MUST persevere for Israel. YOUR ceaseless prayers, and YOUR activism NOW to Congress are URGENTLY needed! A savage global campaign of LIES, DEFAMATION AND DELEGITIMATION are about to erupt upon Israel in an effort to demoralize and fatally weaken her…
We need YOU! Congress MUST hear from thousands of American voters TODAY that our valued ally Israeli P.M. Netanyahu IS WARMLY WELCOMED to speak to our Congress ANYTIME, and that Israel MUST be defended from Obama's malign and reckless policies!
DEMAND OBAMA'S DANGEROUS DIPLOMATIC ATTACKS ON ISRAEL STOP – NOW!
Make no mistake: the current Arab "truce" with Israel is a FAKE by Hamas terrorists and the Islamic supremacists, while Iran goes nuclear, the Sunni caliphate expands and Israel is undermined. And Obama wants to distract us from the escalating conflict by INSULTING Israel's Prime Minister and MEDDLING in Israeli POLITICS to DISLODGE Netanyahu from office! Obama continues to use EVERY affront possible, including U.S. SANCTIONS AGAINST LAWFUL ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS IN EAST JERUSALEM!
We MUST stand with Israel, stand with Netanyahu, turn up public pressure on Congress to STOP funding the terrorist Palestinian Authority and their thug cohort Hamas, and HALT Obama's negotiate-with-terrorists ploy by REINTRODUCING and ENACTING S. 2265, the Stand With Israel Act of 2014!
Congress MUST intervene and STOP Obama's disastrous anti-Israel, pro-Hamas policies – FOR GOOD!
TODAY, join us in SUPPORTING NETANYAHU in RESISTING the Islamic threat, and STANDING WITH ISRAEL and helping her stay strong against Obama-enabled TREMENDOUS, UNJUST international condemnation!
Hamas, like Iran, needs to be DEFEATED, NOT CODDLED, AIDED AND SUPPORTED BY THE UNITED STATES!
After some 50 days of Operation Protective Edge, with 64 valiant IDF soldiers slain, and six Israeli civilians killed – Obama and Kerry through the nefarious U.N. and elsewhere continue to BELITTLE and SNUB Netanyahu because he is a tough negotiator compared to the Leftists in Israel that Obama prefers. Obama presses for concessions from Israel and provides MILLIONS of U.S. DOLLARS in AID for HAMAS and FATAH – AND BILLIONS to their terror state sponsors like Qatar and Turkey!
When Hamas has NO fighting capability left; when its infiltrating tunnels of terror are eliminated; then actions can be taken by Israel to totally and permanently DEMILITARIZE ARAB GAZA. Reform-minded Arabs within and outside the Palestinian Authority clearly cannot otherwise master terrorism and hatred towards Israel – and Israel cannot continue to face the existential threat of terrorism.
IT'S TIME FOR CONGRESS TO SHOW COURAGE AND PRINCIPLE – AND COMPEL OBAMA AND KERRY TO STAND WITH ISRAEL!
As observed by foreign affairs expert Caroline Glick, Obama is
There is a liberal majority of the Democrat party that no longer stands foursquare with Israel – and under the "leadership" of Obama, the betrayal of Israel is becoming party policy.
IT MUST NOT BECOME AMERICA'S POLICY.
CONGRESS MUST NOT DISHONOR OUR NATION BY BESMIRCHING OUR RIGHTFUL HISTORY OF SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH STATE.
THE UNITED STATES MUST NOT FUND THE HAMAS-FATAH TERRORIST 'UNITY' FRONT!
THE UNITED STATES MUST NOT FUND THE HAMAS-FATAH TERROR STATE SPONSORS!
AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL. PLEASE PRAY AND ACT FOR THE SAFETY OF ISRAEL…
