Time Is Up For The Leftists Who Work Against The Interests Of The State Of Israel

Be Very Afraid, Fifth Columnists

MK Danny Danon told Arutz Sheva that he will be the Knesset member heading the committee of inquiry into ultra-leftist groups' sources of funding that the Israeli parliament voted to establish.

Danon said that he "recommends to [Peace Now Director] Yariv Oppenheimer and the other directors of the NGOs that are a fifth column within Israel to start sprucing up their CVs, because soon they will be unemployed."

Among the organizations and persons Danon intends to invite to the committee, he lists:

•B'tselem - director, Jessica Montel
•The Center for Defense of the Individual - director, Dalia Kirstein
•Yesh Din - director, Roi Maor
•Ir Amim - director, Yehudit Oppenheimer
•The Public Committee against Torture in Israel - director, Yishai Blanc
•Adallah - director, Mahmoud Yazbek
•Peace Now - director, Yariv Oppenheimer
•Gisha - director, Kenneth Mann
•Association for Civil Rights ion Israel - President, Sami Michael
•Mousawa - Anwar Jamal, Tariq Bashir, Jafer Farah
•as well as: Breaking the Silence, Machsom Watch, The Israeli Committee against Home Demolitions and the Center for Alternative Information.
Danon said that "it is time to find our the sources of the monies for these groups that act without letup against the state of Israel." He added: "We will try to find out who are the ones who arrange the riots at the Bil'in checkpoint, who funded the legal motions in the matter of Highway 443. We will reveal the bodies that roam the Galilee and purchase private lands with Saudi money. The leftists seem afraid and they must have a reason for fearing this committee."

The committee does not have powers of subpoena and is no different from other Knesset committees as far as its powers. Danon is optimistic, however: "I hope we can stop these groups, which received 40 million shekels from the European Union in the last five years alone... We will try to discover the truth and in the end we will recommend changes in legislation as well.

Are you now or have you ever been...? Without these "leftists", Israel would lose the moral high ground and be just like the neighbourhood.
I'm guessing that's not what you want.
And as this committee is allegedly powerless, it's just gesture politics -- much like the SWPers' call for a boycott. Stalinists calling for a boycott? Surely not.

Jonathan, as co-vice-chair of the ZF, and that is how you identify yourself so don't try and wriggle out by saying you are writingin a personal capacity, you really should not be taking a partisan view. And especially one that is so anti-Zionist.

It may be just a "committee", but once it has completed its remit and exposed the funding sources, they will then be able to push for changes to the legislation to impose strict controls on such funding.
Which again, in time will put an end to organsisations within the Country working against the interests of the State.

So it is Stalinism, Jon, and not just a probe into funding. By your own admission.
OK, boot on the other foot. Along comes a government in Israel that probes the foreign funding of the settlers and other right wingers like Yisrael Beiteinu and the Nationalist Union (Kahana Chai etc), which it says are working against the interests of the state, and can prove it. Would you applaud it? Nope, didn't think so.

Stalinism has been consigned to the dustbin of history.
This is not Stalinism, it is modern day politics.
The question you pose is hypothetical as the right wing groups are working FOR the State not AGAINST the State.
What we are dealing here is with reality; the "leftist" groups are working against the interests of the State and in the long term will be happy with nothing less than the downfall and capitulation of The State Of Israel.
The "leftist" groups are working for:-
-The creation of a Palestinian Arab State.
-The return of Palestinian Arab "refugees" to Israel proper.
-Exposing, crtiscising and accounting for actions of the IDF under fire.
-Rights for Arab prisoners held on suspicion of terrorist activity.
"The moral high ground" as you put it is an esoterical,leftist irrelevance; what Israel needs to be concerned about is security and survival.

Genuine enquiries into sedition or conspiring with the enemy - yes, with hunts against organisations that embarrass the state - no.

Anything else is anti-democratic.

@Zair
Paranoid?
Seems to me that those who arrest vultures and believe sharks are trained by foreign agents are the paranoid ones. Paranoia is an irrational fear. What's irrational about fearing those who threaten your very existence daily for decades?

Strange how the anti-Zios call for the destruction of Israel, try to delegitimise it, attack it, falsify history and then whinge when it takes steps to defend itself.

Paranoid?
If I were an Egyptian Copt I'd be paranoid.

Paranoid?
If I were a Christian Iraqi I'd be paranoid.

Paranoid?
If I were a Christian Arab in Bethlehem, I'd be paranoid.

If I were a Palestinian in Jordan or Syria or a Tamil in Sri Lanka or a Darfuri I'd be paranoid.

Israeli's are not paranoid because they see every day why they need to viligant against those who physically attack from without and verbally from within. That is not irrational, it's quite the opposite.

If that's the way Israel wants to go then so be it. There seem to be many supporters here, I just hope they take less time to realise their error than the Americans did.

HAHAHA, Milligramsam is again posing as the "moral high ground". Ultra-leftists (not "leftists", those for which I usually vote) have no morality except that of dictators. These always supported the strong (the Muslim empire or 1 billion and a half) against the weak (Israel and its 6 million Jews), the terrorists from a dictatorship against the army of a democracy.

They know no morals, they only believe they are better than all others.

Remember that Stalin was a "Leftist", Milligramsam? Most of the ultra-lefties who demonise Israel today were those who applauded Stalin or Trotsky in those years and their descendants like the Walinuts and you.

The most appropriate word is that zair is an antisemite of the worse kind. Comparison with McCarthy, who targeted individuals and their beliefs, not the fundings, is irrelevant.
Demonising Israel is just antisemitism as by EU's working definition of it.

Milligramsam, we Zionists love the idea of a democracy and we hate it when stupids like those lefties try to libel it from the supposed "moral high ground" that never have them criticise dictatures.
All those supposed non-political NGOs with an anti-Israeli agenda should be scrutinised to the bone for links to dictatorships, funding by external groups unfriendly to Israel.
In France, a non-profit organisation whose founder had only abused the donators' money was condemned after a criminal inquiry. Do you criticise that also? No of course, since Israel cannot be blamed. Jew Flu!

After proving that Wheelchair is a paranoid lunatic, we now see Milligramsam going overboard too.

Maybe it's in Dulwich Village's water...
After I revealed the pseudonym under which he was hiding until he was banned, I understand he was a bit upset.
Bad thing is that he now broke his vows not to care about me... (sob!)
