[At Last! A New tikva (hope) for Israel]
Notes and Bio From A Frustrated Jewish, Zionist, Israeli, Texas American

VICTORY PLAN FOR ISRAEL
Be sure to read the whole plan at http://freeman.org/serendipity/index.php?/archives/371-VICTORY-PLAN-FOR-ISRAEL.html . This is only an excerpt:
The Israeli government allow[s] its citizens to be attacked solely because they [are] Jews. In no other country of the world would such a policy be tolerated.
. . . Today rockets, mortars, and missiles rain down on Israel with impunity. The Israel government is paralyzed and can only think of retreat, appeasement and surrender . . .
This did not happen without a massive assault on the principles of Zionism, on which Israel was founded. The right of Jews to their Holy Land was challenged by Israeli leftist, anti-Semites, and Islamists world wide. The Israeli education system and military was stripped of patriotism and the new religion of "peace and surrender" was meant to supplant Judaism.
. . . VICTORY PLAN FOR ISRAEL
. . . Israel has a majority of good proud Zionist Jews, but they have failed in understanding the dynamics of mass movements. As Eric Hoffer, enunciated so well in his book, THE TRUE BELIEVER, mass movement need a leader and the Nationalist Camp in Israel has not had a true leader since Ariel Sharon, who sold them them out.
They are so divided that they may never be victorious. I say to them, don’t wait for Mosiach or miracles, BE THE MIRACLE! Put personalities aside and unite behind one banner as I wrote in my editorial for June 1994 issue of THE MACCABEAN. It was entitled VICTORY PLAN FOR ISRAEL, and recieved wide praise from the Nationalist Camp. But it never was implemented. Here are the essential ingredients:
1. Formation of a United Zionist/religious Front with one leader and a committee made up of all constituent groups. Agreement not to worry about personal gain or power, but only what is best for Israel.
2. Name the Front after heroes from Jewish history like the Maccabees
3. The Maccabees (if that is the name) should begin to march all over Israel wearing blue and white and carrying Israeli flags.
4. Flags should deck every balcony and car
5. Marches should grow in number and intensity all over the country. Not just in the largest cities.
6. Catchy slogans, posters and bumper stickers should appear everywhere. The message should be positive. For example:
A. The Maccabees with save Israel
B. The Maccabees will drive the Pagans (leftists) from Jerusalem
C. The Maccabees will make Jewish history
D. The Maccabees can save Jerusalem, Yesha, and the Golan
You can think up a million more.
7. Maccabeen armbands similar to the logo for the Freeman Center or something else like an Israeli flag should be worn everywhere so journalists and politicians can see the growing strength of our front.
MACCABEE PARTY PLATFORM:
[Illustration of party platform -- not written in stone -- subject to discussion. But beware of spending too much energy on platform details. Keep your eyes on the prize: the fall of Rabin and the saving of Israel from dismemberment. And now, of course, Olmert, Livni and Barak.]
1. All of Eretz Yisrael is the rightful possession of the Jewish people.
2. Israeli sovereignty extended to all of Eretz Yisrael.
3. Jerusalem is the united captal of Israel and all foreign embassies must be in Jerusalem. Countries not wishing to have an embassy in Jerusalem are welcome to have consulates in other Israeli cities.
4. The Arabs, who wish to live in peace with their Jewish neighbors, are welcome and should have full civil rights including self-rule in their villages and towns.
5. Item #4 does not imply or give any political sovereignty to the Arab population.
6. Those Arabs that desire to do harm to their Jewish neighbors or who claim sovereignty over any part of Eretz Yisrael should be re-settled among other Arab countries.
7. Arabs resisting item #6 should be forcibly removed from Eretz Yisrael.
8. Economic and political incentives for the Arabs to emigrate other countries.
9.Israel's economy should become a fully open free enterprise economy. Government regulations, taxes, and bureaucracy that have inhibited economic growth for 45 years should be removed immediately. All government enterprises should be privatized as soon as practical.
10. In all matters Israeli foreign policy should be conducted in a manner that reflects the dignity and sovereignty of the Jewish state. There should be an end to the bowing and scraping reminiscent of ghetto Jews, complete with the acceptance of insults from friend and foe alike.
11. A new constituency based constitution similar to the one I proposed as the Rafi Party platform in 1965 and Prof. Paul Eidelberg is proposing now.
12. Plus whatever you wish......
WHAT WILL MAKE THIS PLAN WORK:
1. It is positive and exciting and will restore momentum to the Right-wing.
2. The Right is in an almost clinical depression. This plan will cause a dramatic mood shift by focusing on the future and victory.
3. Since I am proposing this plan, and I have no political following in Israel, then each member of the Nationalist/Religeous camp is free to agree to a plan that is not proposed by a political contender.
4. Marches, parades. flags, and symbols make good TV news. Good visual images.
5. The use of Blue and White and massive displays of flags will associate the Israeli flag with the Maccabee Party. Every flag displayed will promote the Maccabee Party.
6. Several members of the Kadima Party would leave a sinking ship if there were an alternative. If they see the public rallying to the Maccabee Party and they see that we are in the ascendancy and the Maccabee Party offers them a role as a faction in the party then maybe 7-10 Kadima MK's will join.
7. If #6 works then there will be new elections.
8. The Maccabee Party must maintain unity and compete in the elections with great professionalism.
9. Use the power of the Maccabee Party to introduce total civil disobedience in Israel as I presented in my article, BLACK DAYS FOR ISRAEL, if necessay to prevent withdrawals from Eretz Yisrael (see my articles on my blog or website)
10. VICTORY FOR ISRAEL
"IF YOU WILL IT, IT NEED NOT BE A DREAM"
.........Theodore Herzl (1897)
It is as simple as that. If you put your heart and soul into this campaign, you can win. By force of WILL, you can create The Maccabee Party, and save Israel from disaster.
Will you do it???
