Former Shin Bet chief criticizes Israeli leadership that is under the 'illusion that the Palestinians will just accept all that we are doing in the West Bank and not respond.'

The escalation of violence in the territories, Jerusalem and the triangle (of Arab towns in central Israel) are the direct result of the policies of the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin wrote late Friday in a harshly critical Facebook post.


In his lengthy comment, Diskin wrote that the rapid deterioration in the security situation has shattered the Israeli leadership's "illusion that Israel's frustrated Arab citizens will not at the end of the day take to the streets over the lack of response to their problems and the containment of the Palestinians in the West Bank, and will not react despite their frustration and the worsening economic situation."

This illusion, Diskin said, "worked perfectly for as long as the defense establishment succeeded in providing impressive calm in the defense arena. The rapid deterioration in the security situation was not only down to the brutal murders of Naftali, Eyal and Gil-Ad, but first and foremost it is the result of the illusion that the government's stagnation in every area was really keeping the situation in deep freeze."

Diskin, who headed the Shin Bet for six years, went on to define the various "illusions" that he says the government is propagating.

"The illusion that 'price tag' attacks are just a few slogans on the walls and not really racism; the illusion that everything can be solved with a little more force; the illusion that the Palestinians will just accept all that we are doing in the West Bank and not respond, despite their rage, frustration and worsening economic situation; the illusion that the international community will not impose sanctions on us; that Israel's frustrated Arab citizens will not ultimately take to the streets over the lack of treatment of their problems; and the Israeli public will keep submissively accepting the government's incompetent response to the social gaps that its policies have only worsened, when corruption continues to eat away at all that is good, and so on and so on.

Diskin concluded with a grave warning that there could still be worse to come.

"Anyone who thinks that this can be sustained is making a huge mistake. What has been happening in recent days could be much worse - even if the situation temporarily calms down. Do not be fooled for one moment, because the massive internal pressure will still be there, the combustible fumes in the air will not dissipate, and if we do not dispel them, there will be an even more serious situation."

Palestinians all over Palestine, including Gaza of course, Have been subject to a holocaust planed, managed and supervised by the fascist Israeli government which is led by Netanyahu and other right wing extremists. Failing to achieve any progress in the primary peace talks brokered by US secretary of state for more than six month, Netanyahu began to look for an excuse to escalate the already explosive situation in Palestine and the Isolation Israel is facing everyday and the growth of BDS movement. The alleged kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers ( which I believe is just a false flag ) was used as an excuse to turn Palestinians lives to hell with mass punishment against ALL Palestinians who suffered a lot during the Israeli occupation since and even before 1948 .
Netanyahu accused Hamas without a single proof and took his decision to kill more Palestinians as he failed to stop the reconciliation between Hamas and others on one side and PA on the other side. He rejected the unity government ( something he hasn't the right to) and decided to dissolve it .

That criminal Netanyahu is a war monger and is committing crimes against humanity. Burning a Palestinian teenager to death is simply using the same Nazi techniques to kill.

I think time has come to consider dissolving the Zionist entity which has been planted in the Middle East where it doesn't belong. The world now recognizes the fact that it was the BIGGEST mistake to allow such entity in this area. The world represented by UN has to dissolve that criminal,Fascist,apartheid entity and send Zionists safely back to where they came from it it wants peace to prevail not only in the middle east but the whole world.

Statement by Michael and Osha Neumann that accompanied their request for the removal of their grandmother’s name from Yad Vashem:
“I do not believe that the Jewish people, in whose name you have committed so many crimes with such outrageous complacency, can ever rid itself of the shame you have brought upon us. Nazi propaganda, for all its calumnies, never disgraced and corrupted the Jews; you have succeeded in this…you blacken our names not only by your acts, but by the lies, the coy evasions, the smirking arrogance and the infantile self-righteousness with which you embroider our history… You will never pay for your crimes and you will continue to preen yourself, to bask in your illusions of moral ascendancy.”

"The escalation of violence in the territories, Jerusalem and the triangle (of Arab towns in central Israel) are the direct result of the policies of the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin wrote late Friday in a harshly critical Facebook post." It seems he knows what he is talking about - and that Netanyahu does NOT. The situation is beyond appalling. God help the ordinary people.

I was deeply impressed by the sentiments reported in Jess's comment on Sunday at 9.17 am which I have taken the liberty of reproducing below...

"Statement by Michael and Osha Neumann that accompanied their request for the removal of their grandmother’s name from Yad Vashem:
“I do not believe that the Jewish people, in whose name you have committed so many crimes with such outrageous complacency, can ever rid itself of the shame you have brought upon us.

VIDEO: The Gaza Bombardment - What You're Not Being Told

(Because this went out late Thursday afternoon, just as we learned Israel had begun a ground invasion of Gaza, many of you may have called but were unable to get through. Please call the White House today, between 9am and 5pm eastern time, at the number provided in this message.)

Peace Action has long worked for peace, disarmament and addressing the root causes of war and violence. As we know from experience, far too often U.S. military aid and weapons transfers to undemocratic and human rights abusing governments, or to one or more sides engaged in violent conflict, fuels that very conflict, rather than providing defense, security or stability.

U.S. taxpayers fund over $3 billion in military aid to Israel annually, enabling continuation of the illegal occupation of Palestine and armed conflict with the Palestinians, as we see now, once again, in the awful violence in Gaza. Peace Action advocates nonviolent solutions to conflict, and as such calls for a ceasefire by Israel and Hamas to end the current conflict. Additionally, the U.S should suspend transfers of weapons, crowd control devices, and military training to Israel in response to Israel's human rights abuses of Palestinians in order to help end what The Washington Post called a “deeply asymmetrical conflict.”

We also agree with Amnesty International’s call for “…the UN to immediately impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Israel, Hamas and Palestinian armed groups with the aim of preventing further serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights by the parties to the conflict. Pending such an embargo, all states must immediately suspend all transfers of military equipment, assistance and munitions to the parties, which have failed to properly investigate violations committed in previous conflicts or bring those responsible to justice.”

Please take action for peace in Palestine and Israel. Call the White House comment line at 202.456.1111 and demand a ceasefire and suspension of U.S. weapons and military aid to Israel.
