Shimon Cohen, 18 Cheshvan 5783, 12.11.22

Sometimes it takes 70 years to sober up, sometimes you have to admit unpleasant things and sometimes it turns out that there is something more important than the country.

Don't blame the Shin Bet

Anyone who passionately claims (and even without passion) that the Shin Bet was not aware of the serious actions of Avishi Raviv and his incitement of Yigal Amir to assassinate the Prime Minister, accuses the Shin Bet of very serious things, such as the organization's lack of control over its agent, ignoring The heads of the organization warn public figures of the actions of their agent, a minimal lack of orientation to what is happening in the area where an agent operates, transferring a fixed salary to the agent without receiving from him a detailed report on his relations with the dangerous elements to which he is sent, an organization that allows the agent to establish an independent organization, to operate with a broad hand and violent without control. In short, an intelligence organization of a third world country. As someone who appreciates the organization and its capabilities, it is difficult for me to accuse it of such serious accusations.

Face it and admit it, we are apartheid

If by chance you haven't seen it, look for that cute video of the Arab student from Haifa. Browse here with us and you will see how she stammers when she is asked to present one example of something in which Israel behaves as apartheid towards its Arab citizens. A... a... a... she mumbles awkwardly in front of a camera and a stubborn interviewer. Nice, but...

But it seems to me that the time has come to admit, we are indeed an apartheid state that discriminates between its citizens on a racial basis and it seems to me that it is no longer possible to hide this. So here, let's give that Haifa student some examples of apartheid, we'll spare her the stutter next time. That's who we are, good people. Love to help.

When the State of Israel reduces to a minimum the hours of entry for Jews to the Temple Mount, the number of Jews who will ascend the Mount, the route they will walk, the movements they will make, the murmurs they will mutter, and even during the few hours it opens the Mount to Jews only through one gate, while at the same time allowing Muslims mass entry through all A gate, every hour for every ritual need, they call it racial discrimination.

When the State of Israel allows the young people of the Arab sector to enter the labor market or the academy immediately after finishing high school without requiring them to do national service, military service or even deferment of conscription, but simply skips this stage and gives them an advantage of three years of seniority over a young Jew, read This too is racially based discrimination.

When laws such as the prohibition of bigamy are not enforced on the Arab population, which encourages them to marry 3-4-5 wives or more and make a living from the allowance of their many children, while any Jew who behaves this way will very quickly find himself in front of a judge, the definition here too is racial discrimination .

When the bar for entering the world of Israeli academia is lowered when a candidate from the Arab sector arrives and can be accepted with a lower psychometric rating than his Jewish counterpart, this not only causes young Jews to choose to study abroad and then also receive tempting offers to stay there to work as well, it is simply discrimination, racially.

When on the roads of Judea and Samaria there are huge red signs that warn in white letters and make it clear that 'entry to Israelis is prohibited' and everyone knows that the reference is to Jews, because Israeli Arabs can actually enter to spend time in restaurants in Ramallah and al-Bira or buy at discounted prices in Hebron or Tul-Karem, these are apartheid roads.

So what are we, apartheid or not apartheid?


And here's another thing that doesn't go down the throat when it comes to Jews, but with Muslims, how can I say, they accept it with general silence and the hubbub of what we've already gotten used to.

Take for example Sheikh Ekrama Sabri, who was the mufti of Jerusalem (Yasser Arafat's appointment), but even after he was fired still holds senior and influential positions, who went to pay a condolence visit to the home of the terrorist who murdered the (18-yeads-old) female soldier Noa Lazar, where he explained to the family members that he was not the only terrorist - a 'shahid' who is honored, but also his parents will be granted "heaven" and even a special palace that will be built for them by Allah in His own honor. They will receive this reward for the patience with which they accepted the death of the son who was chosen to be a martyr by Allah Himself. My comments were careful to expand and explain to the mourners the sublime virtues and rights of the 'shahid.'

Since it is clear to anyone with a reasonable mind that the words of that Sabri are nothing but words of incitement and encouragement for terrorism and the following attacks, we are left to wonder how it happens that the man is still walking around freely, cloaked and wearing a turban without being disturbed. Our dear boys were not sent to capture him even though the man was using a cane to walk, so that he would not be able to escape quickly. But as we said, when it comes to a Muslim cleric, everything is allowed.

Everything is fine with [when it comes to] them...
