Yedioth lies for Lieberman

By Ted Belman

YNETYesterday Min Lieberman reportedly said to the German Foreign Minister, “We will never accept the definition of building in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem as settlement activity,’

I commented that according to Israel’s official policy, all of Jerusalem is part of Israel and she will not agree to its partition. Lieberman pointedly omitted Arab neighborhoods. He should not have made the distinction.

You know also that his party is backing the anti Israel Hayom bill because he wants to support its rival Yedioth Aronoth.

Yesterday they returned him the favour in reporting on his Jewish neighbourhood remark under the title, “Lieberman: Israel will never limit East Jerusalem settlement building”. The opening sentance was “Israel will never agree to limit its construction activity in East Jerusalem, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Sunday.”

How blatant can you get?

  1. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:
    Shmuel, your numbers mirror the recently-released Knesset Channel poll results, which I think are relatively accurate. The time is ripe for a Jewish nationalist and religious political front without Labor, HaTnua, Yesh Atid or Meretz. I think the political strength of Bennett’s party will grow faster and stronger than that of Likud’s Manhigut, not solely because of his correct call to destroy the Hamas resupply tunnels around the Gaza strip. Nonetheless, Netanyahu will almost certainly control any newly-elected Knesset governing coalition.

    Which need not necessarily be a problem. I think that general circumstances — and opportunities — may well compel Netanyahu to fully resist the pressures to surrender emanating from the Obama administration and the European Union. The general mood of Jewish Israel is that no two-state solution is possible, that the Islamic and especially Arab war against the Jewish state will continue no matter what Israel does, and that people in general are tired of being shoved around. I think too there is growing support for the idea that Jews as well as Arabs are entitled to pray as they see fit on the great temple mount in Jerusalem.

    Like it or not, the USA will be compelled to mount a major effort to break ISIS. And the mood of the new Republican-controlled US Congress will not allow Obama to threaten Israel in any meaningful way. As for the EU, Putin’s growing will to power of the Great Russia will not permit them any time or resources for paper crusades against the Jewish state over the question either of Jerusalem or a two-state solution whose possibilities shrink with each passing week.

  2. Yedihot lies…. Full stop. Lieberman is for hire at present.

    This is from the Likud inner groups. Netanyahu is seriously considering elections now. He can control the outcome.
    Livni will be gone or near it and Lapid downed to likely one digit numbers or remotely, maximum 10. What remains of “kadima” will disappear.
    Likud could get 23 and Bennett 18+. MAPAI 14. Islamics 10. Liebernan 10, Shas 9, Lapid 9, MAPAM 9, Haredi 8, Livni 4? The rest are up for grabs.
