The settler organisation Women in Green hosted an evening recently with Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick. Two believers in the concept of Greater Israel and disliking Arabs. A match made in heaven, really.
Here’s the Women in Green report of that peace-loving event:
“Obama and Israel” was the topic of Caroline Glick’s talk on Friday in the Land of Israel cultural Center in Shdema, Gush Etzion.
More than a hundred people packed the hall in Shdema. They came from Jerusalem, Bet Shemesh, Gush Etzion, Efrat, Kiryat Arba Hevron, Ofra, etc.
According to Glick’s analysis, Obama never liked Israel and nothing Israel will do will change that. The reason is simple. His biography shows that, since his youth, Obama surrounded himself with people that were anti-Semitic, pro-Arab and with a Communist orientation; a surrounding of people that not only deny the right of Israel to exist but that do not like America either.
Netanyahu will never succeed in “finding favor” in the eyes of Obama and his friends and thus Bibi should stop trying to appease and please them. On the contrary, more and more people in America are very disappointed with Obama and understand he is not the person they thought he was. They are very disturbed with the fact that clearly Obama does not like America and is not behaving like a proud patriot. Netanyahu should do all he can to minimize the strength of Obama.
Instead of telling us that relations with Obama are “warming up”, Netanyahu should bypass Obama and directly speak to the people in America, passing on a very clear message that Israel is strong and does not intend to capitulate. A message of strength like that was passed on by Netanyahu in his speech at the UN in September; a speech that led to an incredible wave of support in America. Unfortunately, says Glick, after that speech, Bibi went downhill and started caving in. Caroline Glick called upon Bibi to get a hold of himself.
At the beginning and end of Caroline Glick’s talk, videoclips of Latma were screened. Latma is Caroline Glick’s Hebrew website
(www.latma.co.il) in which, through satire, they make fun of the leftist media and elites in Israel and thus delegitimize them. Latma enables every Jew to identify with his healthy Jewish instinct.
Caroline Glick received a very warm welcome and support by the Shdema public, among them many English speakers who enjoyed the speech thanks to the simultaneous translation of Ruchi Avital who translated, into earphones, Glick’s Hebrew speech.
The members of the Committee for a Jewish Shdema and Women in Green summarized Caroline Glick’s message by saying that now more than ever, it is clear we must increase the struggle for the Land of Israel even more; a struggle that Obama might not like but the people in America most certainly identify with.
