Israel, In Need Of A National Couch - High Court Halts Demolitions Of Terrorists Homes
November 28, 2014
November 26, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Evidence of the rotting of Western Culture can be found nearly everywhere; in the United States' refusal to control its borders or re-establish the rule of law, Sweden's buckling to the demands of a lunatic Muslim minority, France's acceptance of no-go areas, festering Islamic neighborhoods, Britain's failure to stop the constant calls to jihad which come from the country's mosques as well as its recognition of over 100 Shari'a courts…
But this sickness, the unwillingness of West to defend itself against predation, especially that of the Muslim world, has circled back on itself in a manner that defies belief.
In less than 6 months the Jewish state has been forced to fight a defensive war against HAMAS/Fatah after it had launched over 400 rocket attacks on the country from its safe haven in Gaza. Over the last month these same terrorists have waged a brutal wave of "lone wolf" murders against Israeli civilians which have killed over ten people including a 3 month old baby.
Naturally, the entire country has been traumatized.
The response so far has been tepid; a few of these terrorists have been killed in gun battles and a few dozen have been detained for questioning. The most extreme policy the Netanyahu government has undertaken has been the demolition of some of the terrorists' homes.
But even that rather mild remedy has now been halted by Israel's notoriously out-of-control - Supreme Court, which has granted an injunction against the practice, of course in response to a lawsuit by Arab plaintiffs.
In an effort to rein in the country's high court, legislation has been working its way through the Knesset designed to stop the judicial over reach but it has met with stiff resistance from the Arabs as well as leftist Israelis who don't seem to care about the fate of a homeland which was bequeathed to them.
The imperious nature of the Israeli Supreme Court is well known [it serves as a template which American Marxists seek to emulate] caused Robert Bork [now deceased, whose nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court was blocked by an ugly campaign of personal attacks led by then Senator Ted [the diver] Kennedy of Chappaquiddick infamy] to observe:
With America's cities in flames because a multi-racial grand jury refused to indict an innocent white law enforcement officer, pointing fingers is hardly appropriate, yet the case of Israel is as special as it is instructive.
No democracy on Earth has been subjected to the level of enmity expressed by the West as has the Jewish state. It's as if the anti-Semitism, pogroms, the Shoah and the daily violence that Israel has and continues to face is of no consequence. What's worse however is that a substantial number of Israeli Jews seem to be in full support of the program – Stockholm Syndrome writ large.
