חוצפה מסוכנת Dangerous chutzpa of Israeli civil servants
חוצפה מסוכנת: אנשי מערכת הבטחון - עובדי מדינה - יוזמים ויתורים מדיניים לפלשתינים. הם אף פרסמו בלי בושה את ה"יוזמות" שלהם: http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-4368580,00.html
חשוב לפנות לשר הבטחון ולסגנו.
אנא עדכנו firstname.lastname@example.org אם תקבלו תשובה - נפרסם את התשובה לטובת ציבור הפעילים בבלוג מטות ערים או בפייסבוק מטות ערים.
אם מייל או שניים חוזרים עם "טעות" - לא להתרגש, זה בגלל האנדרלמוסיה המסורתית במסדרונות הכנסת.
הנה מכתב לדוגמה:
לשר הבטחון מר בוגי יעלון
ולסגנו מר דני דנון!
שלום רב. נדהמנו לשמוע שעובדי מדינה במערכת הבטחון הפכו את עצמם לראשי-ממשלה. הם יוזמים ומקדמים ויתורים מדיניים רבים, למשל:
· שחרור 30-40 מחבלים מהכלא (קיבלו מאסר עולם).
· העברת תחמושת למנגנוני הביטחון הפלסטינים
· פתיחת תחנות "משטרה" פלסטיניות חדשות
· הגדלת מכסת הביקורים למחבלים שכלואים בישראל
· בניית תשתית פלסטינית דווקא בתוך שטח ישראלי - במקום בתוך השטח שהפלשתינים קיבלו בהסכמי אוסלו
· העברת שטחים ישראלים לשליטה פלסטינית חלקית או מלאה
· העברת צירים נוספים באיזור יריחו, לידי הפלשתינים.
· אישור 12 תוכניות מתאר לכפרים פלסטיניים בלתי-חוקיים בשטחי C, ליד ישובי הר חברון, בקעת הירדן ומעלה אדומים
· חופש בנייה לוועדות תכנון פלסטיניות שכיום זקוקות לאישור מישראל
כבוד השר וסגן-השר, אנא התיחסתכם.
האם לא ראוי שתבהירו, שכל עובד מדינה במערכת הבטחון שיעסוק בפוליטיקה פרו-פלשתינית,
יושעה מתפקידו מייד?
בכבוד רב, (שם מלא)

Only in Israel: Civil servants in the Defense Ministry/IDF, who are supposed to be non-political, are instead hard at work promoting their own favorite pro-Palestinian concessions.
They even brazenly publicized their initiatives: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4369625,00.html:
These civil servants are promoting the following terrible ideas (have they learned nothing??)
a, supplying more ammunition to the Palestinians
b. giving Palestinians permission to build more "police stations" (military camps i.e.)
c. releasing 30-40 life-sentenced terrorists next month (!)
d. MOST DANGEROUS OF ALL: allowing Palestinians to build up (i.e. gain footholds in) the Israeli part of Judea and Samaria -- right next to all the Jewish communities --
rather than building in the large areas the Palestinians already took over as a result of the Oslo accords!! (the Hebrew article, but not the English translation, explains this last point; so if you read Hebrew, you can see it here: http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-4368580,00.html)
Please write about this to:
Defense Minister Bogy Yaalon, Deputy Minister Danny Danon, and assorted members of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense committee and Knesset faction heads.
The email addresses are: email@example.com; ddanon@KNESSET.GOV.IL; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; ylevin@KNESSET.GOV.IL; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Minister Yaalon and Deputy Minister Danny Danon, cc to public figures,
I was amazed to read in Ynet News that civil servants in the Defense establishment have the audacity to be pushing us toward an entire pro-Palestinian appeasement package that they personally believe in. Their ideas include release of terrorists, giving up crucial Israeli-held land in Judea and Samaria to Palestinians, and more.
I assume you agree that this is shocking on several different levels. Please therefore can you (a) find out how this happened and (b) inform the public how you intend to put a stop to it. Thank you very much indeed, I look forward to hearing from you! (FULL NAME)
Thanks for your great support in this important issue, from Mattot Arim (if a few of your emails don't go through - don't worry about it).

ועדת העררים פסקה במאי 2008 שהמדינה רשאית לפנות את תושבי בית עזרא בחברון -
אך לפני כן עליה להשיב לבקשת הקצאה, לאור 3 עקרונות:
1. טובת הנכס, 2. צרכי הציבור, 3. רצון הבעלים.
מייד לאחר מכן הוגשה בקשת הקצאה, שלא נענתה עד היום. המדינה לא ערערה על פסק הדין, אך לא ענתה על בקשת ההקצאה.
כעת המדינה דורשת לקיים רק את החלק מהפסק הדורש את פינוי היהודים, ומתעלמת מהחלק הדורש לשקול את הקצאתו לשימוש ציבורי ראוי.
הליך זה מהווה המשך מעשי העוול והנישול המתנהל נגד יהודים בחברון מזה שנים.
היישוב היהודי בחברון נתקל בקירות אטומים בכל נסיונותיו להתפתח, לבנות או לרכוש בתים.
מדיניות עויינת זו ממשיכה להתקיים גם כעת. למרות זאת, היישוב היהודי בחברון ימלא את התחייבותו שניתנה לפני הדיון בוועדת העררים, והמשפחות יצאו מהבית ללא עימות. אנו מצפים ותובעים מהממשלה החדשה לקיים את החלטת ועדת העררים ולהפסיק את האפליה המתמשכת והעוול המוסרי כלפי היישוב היהודי בחברון.

Dear friends, my electronic engineer grandson has invented a useful App that could save lives. An App is something applied to a "smartphone" and is usually sold for profit. He is giving this away free. No tricks or hidden motives.See his remarks as follows.Best regards,Ida ************************************My app is meant for Jewish settlers in the West Bank who have rocks and Molotov cocktails thrown at their cars on a daily basis. The app shows known recent incidents on a map, and if you're driving and get close to one it sounds an alert. If rocks are thrown at you by Arabs you can report an incident and other drivers nearby are warned, and I have volunteers who add information from emergency services.Information about events that have just taken place is valuable because the Arabs usually attack many cars in the same spot along the day.The app was shown on two TV channels and is going to be talked about on a radio show in a few days. It is in Hebrew and only available for Android phones: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rock.abc&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5yb2NrLmFiYyJd

We would be pleased to send the relevant correction plus source to anyone able to make the change. Thank you! Susie Dym, spokesperson for Mattot Arim, email@example.comWANTED: WIKI-VOLUNTEERif you are Wikipedia-savvy, can you help?There is an important correction to make here, this is an instance of disinformation:In 2005 Israel decided to dismantle all Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip and four in the northern West Bank. Gorenberg notes, the government's decision was challenged in the Supreme Court by settlers, and the government won the case by noting the settlements were in territory whose legal status was that of 'belligerent territory'. The government argued that the settlers should have known the settlements were only temporary.

A few months ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson's White House office showed LBJ's "personal and often emotional connection to Israel." The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), "the United States became Israel's chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier."
But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson's actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ's actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust - actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of "Righteous Gentile" is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year. Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson.
Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas....
A key resource for uncovering LBJ's pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, "Prologue: LBJ's Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948." Johnson's activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.
Research into Johnson's personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ's commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As a young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather "Big Sam" and father "Little Sam" seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon's family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson's speech writer later stated, "Johnson often cited Leo Frank's lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism."
Already in 1934 - four years before Chamberlain's Munich sellout to Hitler - Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, 'Nazism: An Assault on Civilization', to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor - later known as "Lady Bird" Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.
FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the "Dixiecrats" and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his live.
That same year, LBJ warned Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. "Get as many Jewish people as possible out of Germany and Poland," were Johnson's instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw. But that wasn't enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle "hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries. Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration. Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more."
During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very "substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine." One source cited by the historian reports that "Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled 'Texas Grapefruit' - but containing arms - to Jewish underground 'freedom fighters' in Palestine."
ON JUNE 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, "he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized, and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen."
A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration's attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. "The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration," wrote I.L. "Si" Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time. As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson's closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington "insider."
Johnson's concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, "You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one." Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, "We can't thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler." Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: "Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, 'I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him. He helped me get out.'" Lady Bird elaborated, "Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon's] years."
The PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: "If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo]."
Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol's successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch. Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. "I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel," Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.
Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. "Because it is a right thing to do," responded the straight-shooting Texan.
The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson's scrutiny. The call for "secure and recognized boundaries" was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, "We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved." Goldberg later noted, "Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate." This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson's stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. "I must say for Johnson," Goldberg stated. "He gave me great personal support."
Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, Johnson's policies stemmed more from personal concerns - his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel's diplomatic or military needs."
President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.
Lyndon Johnson's maternal ancestors, the Huffmans, apparently migrated to Frederick, Maryland from Germany sometime in the mid-eighteenth century. Later they moved to Bourbon, Kentucky and eventually settled in Texas in the mid-to-late nineteenth century.
According to Jewish law, if a person's mother is Jewish, then that person is automatically Jewish, regardless of the father's ethnicity or religion. The facts indicate that both of Lyndon Johnson's great-grandparents, on the maternal side, were Jewish.
These were the grandparents of Lyndon's mother, Rebecca Baines. Their names were John S. Huffman and Mary Elizabeth Perrin. John Huffman's mother was Suzanne Ament, a common Jewish name. Perrin is also a common Jewish name.
Huffman and Perrin had a daughter, Ruth Ament Huffman, who married Joseph Baines and together they had a daughter, Rebekah Baines, Lyndon Johnson's mother. The line of Jewish mothers can be traced back three generations in Lyndon Johnson's family tree. There is little doubt that he was Jewish.
