A day following talks delivered by Vice President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Israel supporters at the annual AIPAC policy conference in Washington D.C., Algemeiner Editor Dovid Efune spoke to a Real News TV panel about U.S. – Israel relations.

Asked about the Peace Process and the possibility that President Obama would pressure the Israelis to make concessions during his upcoming visit to Israel, Efune said that there are “two major obstructions that he is going to encounter.”

“One is, his approach to this, which is more concessions is the way to go…Israelis have tried, they have actually done it..and what they have been faced with is more terror, directly.” The second obstruction said Efune, “is kind of a Groucho Marx thing…I don’t believe any Palestinian government would accept any offer that Israel was actually prepared to make.”

The panel also discussed Iran, internal Israeli politics, and how President Obama is likely to be received by the Israeli public during his visit.

The full video of Efune’s interview can be viewed below:

    Just take a look at the DVD “Losing Our Sons” to become aquainted with what the goals of the Islamic Jihad are AND…what they are accomplishing already.

    In regard to Obama’s demand on Israel for the PEACE PROCESS… Who is asking him WHAT DEMANDS HE IS PLACING ON THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY?

  • I’m QUOTiNG : “As long as the Palestinians maintain the Arab League position: no negotiations; no recognition; no peace; demand that any area they takeover should be Jew-free. ; maintain that even if they get a State, the residents the camps on the West Bank, in Jordan, Syria, etc. would not be citizens this new state but would have the right of unlimited return to the state of Israel; and that all of Israel is unredeemed Islamic territory, THERE WILL NEVER BE PEACE…”

  • Obama is merely pushing for his Muslim buddies, he has no real interest in the survival of Israel.

    Hamas has a charter which clearly states that it will not rest until there are no more Jews in Israel or, more to the point, their Palestine. Abbas, of the Palestinian Authority has already made the same statement!

    Golda Meir was a wise woman (& sadly no-one of her quality is around to lead Israel) said “We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

  • There are two main objectives in a non – to semi – military war against Israel(and by extension, world Jewry);the first objective is that by giving credility to Islamic operations, directly from Islamic states or indirectlty by virtue of Obmana’s affiliations to Islam, Israelis and world Jewry are placed at far greater security risk; the second, is creating a war situation between Israelis (Jews) and world Jewry, and within that framework between the various factions: Disunity between Jews will ultimately in the war risk calculation cause the inevitable end of Jewry (Gd Preserve us).
    The two issues – ie Islamism and the end of world Jewry (r”l)are not two disticntive ingredients in a war of all proportions, but rather very intricately intertwinned, because of two other issues, namely -
    1)Israel does not have a governemnt that is proud ofits Jewish-ness nor anything closely related to Judaism, that sees Israel and Judaism as two very disticnt unrealted items;(hence the friction between the religious and the secular);
    2)The UN resolutions and the Oslo Accord were, if they were to be, have, if or but for the existance of common sense and logic are the most unrelenting constants of how the world would like Israel and world Jewry to to dissapear as expeditioulsy as possible: the constants are that Israelis and world Jewry are limited by their ability to be independant – as opposed to autonomous – as viewed by the international community of Israel and Jew haters.
    Taken the above the limitations placed on Israerl and world Jewry become more and more onorous to the detriment of the UN and the Israeli progenitors of the Oslo Accords – because these go against the purpose the governemnt of Israel past and present – to protect the lives of its citizens and the lives of world Jewry succumbing to collective pressure and a hidden fear of how to break the back of the BDS community.
    Again, if the ISraeli govt would do what it has to do and get on with the job of uniting its citizens with a common cause and goal then all these larger than life issues would more rapidly become challenges for the world community and the Israsel – Jew haters.

  • Islamic culture is a War Culture

    The Arabs are controlled by this and do not know it!

    The Middle East conflict is an Islamic Cultural War.

    It is not about land, rights or settlements, water or being politically left or right. If it were it would have been solved long ago. It is not.

    It is Cultural War that means Islamic Culture must destroy Western Culture or Western Culture must destroy Islamic Culture.

    It is a Genocidal War.

    The book “Culture and Conflict”, explains it clearly. It shows that current cultural conditions in the Arab Middle East will not support internal development, advancement or peace until there is a major cultural change. “It is critical that we understand our enemy. That is step one in every conflict,” RR. Philip Carl Salzman, INSB # 978-1-59102-587-0.

Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]
