We have no one to blame but ourselves, for “tolerating evil in the camp” while Israeli kablanim (builders) rake in windfall profits through employment of inordinately cheap Arab labor while Jewish unemployment rises.
Shifra Hoffman of Victims of Arab Terror noted, regarding the non-existence of a policy of not hiring Arabs; “We hold the government guilty of this attack for not implementing this policy.” MB
As the main concerns of Ehud Olmert and his corrupt, self-aggrandizing cronies, including an entire cabinet, at least 117 members of Knesset and certain local city governments, seem to be;
- 1/ Maintaining their own power and power-bases at all cost
- 2/ Self-enrichment through any and all means of bribery, graft, corruption and strong-arming
- 3/ Blind, mindless, hard-hearted efforts to render Israel Yudenrein,
the Arabs in Gaza have exploited the truce in order to attempt facilitation, Heaven-forbid, of a blood-bath reaching as far as Kiryat Gat and Ashdod (Beit Shemesh too???).

Moshe was quite angry at the two Sh’vatim. He was concerned lest Gad and Reuven would avoid taking part in the wars for Eretz Yisrael, that other Sh’vatim might follow suit and B’nai Yisrael might be condemned to wandering in the desert another 40 years. [...]
Four Israeli Arabs from east Jerusalem and two from Nazareth have been indicted for allegedly setting up an Al-Qaida cell in the capital and offering their services to Global Jihad elements, security officials announced Friday.
One of the suspects allegedly made contact with those elements in an attempt to assassinate US President George W. Bush during his visit to Israel in May. [...]
Amidst the various and myriad corruption, graft and influence-peddling scandal accusations against prime minister Ehud Olmert, including
