There is presently a coup d´etat in progress in Israel and it may
very well succeed unless the people of Israel wake up to what is
going on. There may not be tanks in the streets, but there are
unmistakable signs that a coup attempt is in progress.
“Coup d´etat” is described by the Webster´s Dictionary as
follows, “The sudden overthrow of a government by a usually small
group of persons in or previously in positions of authority.”
This is precisely what is happening, a small group of leftist
politicians, rebuffed in their attempt to gain power, have conspired
with agents of several foreign governments, something which they
readily admit, to sway public opinion against the legally elected
government of Israel and put themselves back in power by bypassing
the electoral process.
They have done this by bribing and coercing members of the military
to publicly accuse their government of unethical and terroristic
tactics, parroting the accusations of our enemies. By doing this,
they encourage military disobedience and promote instability in the
armed forces during a time of war. They have also used the foreign
money to instigate and publicize "peace proposals", which have in
similar form been rejected by the people of Israel. They have
bypassed the proper channels of government and taken their proposals
to the foreign capitals of the world, those whose hatred of the Jews
and the Jewish state is obvious to all who can read the local
newspaper or watch the news. They have accepted millions of dollars
in funds from various countries to fund these activities. They have
enlisted the support of several persons who headed various military
and intelligence organizations to publicly denounce their government
and espouse their leftist doctrine.
They have enlisted the aid of the anti-Semitic US State Department to
help sell their package of deceit, as well as the UN and the UK.
Secretary of State Colin Powell is on record as stating that he
wished that those failed leaders of the Left were back in power, so
it would "be easier to push through a settlement leading toward a
Palestinian State." This ignores the fact that Israel is still
considered an independent and democratic state. The Left is not in
power because the people of Israel, sick of the promises of the Left
and the terrible loss of life associated with their policies, have
This has been aided and abetted by those institutions still
controlled by the Left, which include the media, the courts and the
labor movement. How is this being done? Let us look at recent
1. The closure of Arutz Sheva because of irregularities in its
licensing; a station that is in opposition to leftist government
policies is taken off the air by the leftist Supreme Court and help
from Arab and leftist MKs.
2. The general strike, which is causing hardships both physical and
monetary to the economy of Israel at a time when the economy is
possibly making a comeback.
3. Again, the Supreme Court allowing the distorted and inciteful
Jenin, Jenin to be shown, even though its purpose is to incite Arab
hatred against Israel by distorting the facts surrounding the battle
4. The present Chief of Staff of the IDF publicly condemns the prime
minister to the world and accuses Israel and Mr. Sharon of
insensitivity to the Palestinians and embarrasses Israel. His
punishment? None. Sharon says the matter is closed.
5.The mysterious transformation of Ariel Sharon from "Hawk" to "Dove"
in the time he has been in office. Despite his weak protestations to
the contrary, Mr. Sharon has espoused a definitely leftist stance
since attaining office. He has agreed to the idea of a Palestinian
state and expressed a willingness to negotiate with terrorists when
he has previously rejected those ideas in the past. He has refused to
condemn outright mutiny by the members of the IDF, including its
chief of staff. He has refused to counter the interference of the
Supreme Court in Knesset affairs and lawmaking, and refused to
protect Arutz Sheva from being closed down. He has agreed to meet
with Abu Ala, knowing full well that Abu Ala is controlled by Arafat,
someone Sharon has said he will not deal with. Sharon is open to
threats and blackmail from the Left because of his business dealings
and campaign funding scandal involving his son. Could this be behind
his sudden transformation?
Today, the world is convinced that Israel is a threat to world peace,
and that the only way to solve that dilemma is to carve up the state
of Israel and let the Arabs provide the "final solution."
Every critcal remark by a Jew in Israel or elsewhere is heralded
around the world as "proof" that Israel is an obstacle to peace. The
higher the source, the more damage is done. These are all straws
placed on the back of Israel, we are rapidly becoming a pariah
nation, our enemies smell the fear and lack of will to survive of our
The world is looking for an excuse to finally get rid of these "stiff-
necked" people, the Jews, and the sad part of it is, they are being
helped by Jews.
These people, in and out of power, who are trying to subvert the will
of the Jewish people, are guilty of many things, sedition, treason
and aiding genocide. They would bring about a second Holocaust in
their zeal to eliminate any trace of Zionism or Jewish independence.
It is time for the Jews in Israel to rise up and condemn these
policies and those who promote them. The leaders of Israel must be
put on notice that this headlong plunge toward a "final solution"
must stop. Those guilty of sedition and treason must be tried and
their friends and collaborators jailed. The courts must be cleansed
of the judges who feel they are "above the law." Those in charge of
the labor unions must be stripped of their power to destroy the
economy and freedom of the press must mean real freedom and not just
for those ideas approved of by the Left. Those members of the
military, no matter what their rank, who feel they cannot give their
complete loyalty to the State of Israel should resign or be removed.
A country of less than six million people cannot afford the luxury of
allowing its enemies access to its heartland and its capital,
Jerusalem. We cannot allow our enemies to dictate to us what we can
and can´t do in our own country; no other country on earth would
allow that, why is Israel different?
It is time for the people of Israel to get mad, show the government
that we do not support the piecemeal destruction of our country and
the formation of a terrorist state in the heart of our land. Unless
we do, we may not have a country much longer.
