Yair Lapid is currently unelected but has been serving as the 14th Prime Minister of the State of Israel since July 1.Holy2022. He is the alternate Prime Minister of the State of Israel and also holds the portfolio of Minister of Foreign Affairs.
In one year, from 2021 to 2022, the coalition of which Lapid is a member has immensely damaged Israel’s image and damaged the standing of Israel’s foreign diplomacy.
As an outside observer, I question Lapid’s character and leadership intentions.
Lapid IDF soldier
According to Israeli law, the military draft is mandatory. Men are expected to serve a minimum of 32 months and women a minimum of 24 months.
However, there are soldiers who serve to protect their homeland and there are others who are drafted “Jobniks.” They serve because they have to serve time, but their contribution to Israel’s security is rather irrelevant.
Lapid’s military service was rather insignificant. He spent most of his mandatory military service in the Israel Defense Forces as a military correspondent for the IDF weekly Bamahaneh, i.e. “At base camp.
Lapid is a former journalist who has been involved in journalism and other career adventures since 1988 at the age of 25.
He started by being an editor Yedioth Tel Avivlocal newspaper published by the company Yedioth Ahronoth media group. In 1991, he began writing a weekly column in the weekend supplement of a national newspaper, first in Maariv newspaper and later for its competitor, Yedioth Ahronot news.
In 1994, Lapid began his television career; first hosted a Friday evening talk show on Israel’s Channel 1 television; he also hosted a talk show on TV Channel 3; and in the 1990s, Lapid hosted a talk show about current events, the so-called “Yair Lapid” on TV Channel 2. Lapid was also the host Ulpan Shishi (Friday studio), TV Channel 2 Friday night news magazine.
Lapid has also dabbled in writing and publishing books spanning various genres from thrillers to children’s books, novels and a compilation of his newspaper columns.
Another of Lapid’s talents is songwriting. He wrote for a number of Israeli musicians. Some of his songs topped the charts in Israel.
Lapid’s work was no stranger to film production, plays and amateur boxing.
Lapid failed to complete his high school education. He attended the Herzliya Hebrew Gymnasium, where he struggled with learning disabilities; he left school without receiving an Israeli education “bagrut certificate”, is equivalent to a Certificate of General Educational Development – a GED – legally recognized in all US states as the equivalent of a High School Matriculation Diploma.
Lapid is a member of Reform-Progressive Judaism, which is rather distant from Orthodox Judaism. The ideology of the reform movement leans toward policies that threaten Israel’s existence.
In September 2013 Forbes an Israeli publication of the magazine estimated Lapid’s net worth at 22 million shekels, which is approximately 6.2 million US dollars.
Lapid’s political views
As Israel is forced to be in constant conflict with the Arabs, we must delve into what Lapid’s political trajectory is in general and with the Arabs in particular.
Lapid belongs to the political left. He would certainly like to see the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel sit at the table and negotiate peace. But now it is quite clear that the Arabs were called “Palestinians,” they simply do not wish to pursue peace.
Lapid’s political party, Yes Atidmeaning, There is a futureit stands on a 2013 platform that requires an outline “two states for two people.” This is a political idea that has failed miserably in every way and shape.
However, that is what Lapid also said “We are not looking for a happy marriage with Arab-Palestinians, but a divorce settlement we can live with.” How he would implement such a plan when all previous offers to the Palestinian Authority have failed is a mystery that belongs to the political platitudes we often hear.
Since 1993, it has been quite clear that the Oslo Accords “two-state solution” means the dissolution of the state of Israel. That was Yasser Arafat’s view when he signed the accords, while unrealistic Israelis saw a colorful rainbow of peace in the sky.
Lapid also seems to be anti-Zionist
Lapid, the interim prime minister, does not rule out that the governing coalition would be Arab members of the Israeli Knesset, Ahmad Tibi and Ayman Odeh. partners.
The Arabs he calls to be part of his coalition should he be elected PM are anti-Zionists as well as anti-Semites who hate Israel/Jews.
Zionism means the right of Jews to self-determination in their ancestral homeland of Israel. According to the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) legally non-binding working broad definition bullet points of antisemitism if you deny the Jews their right to self-determination, which is the definition Zionism, you deal with anti-Semitism. Therefore, calling for anti-Zionism-anti-Semites to join his government makes Lapid an anti-Zionist.
But Lapid is clueless in this view as well.
That is a summary of the background of the man who is currently at the head of the State of Israel and the last few months until the upcoming election date of November 1, 2022.
HAS videoin Hebrew, by Middle Eastern scholar Dr. Mordechai Kedar, contains a recording of the podcast before Lapid’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), September 22, 2022. Dr. Kedar is clear: the two-state solution means the destruction of the state of Israel.
In his speech to the UN General Assembly, Lapid called for failure “two-state solution” to rise from the grave and thus call for the destruction of Israel.
After Lapid called for the revival of two states [dis]solution, followed by Mahmud Abbas, PA Rais (Muslim chief or leader). Abbas spoke in response to Lapid’s speech to the UN General Assembly.
I heard him say as I brazenly translated Abbas’s 47 minutes of Israel hatred, lies and deceit and cajoled those who listened to him “Screw the Jews, you are occupying my land, get out of our land, IT’S ALL OURS, you ‘apartheids’!”
Abbas’s speech was just a disgusting repetition of the exact same speech with the same content that he delivers year after year at the UN General Assembly.
UN dictators and human butchers have had their say
Since the Iranian revolution in 1979, the Iranian regime has been calling for the destruction of Israel. They also call the United States “Great Satan” and Israel “Little Satan,” but according to that evil regime they are Satanists.
But in the halls of the United Nations, even Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, known as “tea a butcher from Tehran“ and holocaust denarius and “pay for killed jews” Maser Mahmoud Abbas is free to spread their propaganda.
On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi addressed the UN General Assembly, and Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan, carrying Israel’s dignity on his shoulders, walked out of the hall in protest. The ambassador did not want to hear a human butcher speak, calling for another holocaust and the destruction of Israel and the US. Surprisingly, some do.
And Erdan had something to say “It’s a new moral low for the UN. A mass murderer and holocaust denier takes the stage at the UN to spew his hatred. Any ambassador who remains to hear him should be embarrassed.” Indeed, when a man like Raisi gets a visa to enter the United States, he checks into a luxury hotel in Manhattan, New York, and is interviewed by Lesley Stahl of CBS. “60 minutes” certainly represents a “new low” for the US and the UN World Organization. Hosting Raisi and allowing him to address a gathering with his record of human rights abuses and Holocaust denial is a mockery of the UN.
Sadly, by allowing Raisi to speak at the General Assembly, the US and the UN have given the green light to legitimize Iran and its threats and its nefarious activities against Israel and the world.
As I see Yair Lapid
Yair Lapid is a loose tongue, reckless, political opportunist, full of arrogance. He is what you say in Hebrew “Schweizer”, meaning conceived and boastful. He is also a foolish politician and it is hard to understand what the people who voted for him saw in him that made them identify with him.
Everyone who voted for Naftali Bennett put Yair Lapid in the prime minister’s seat. Those two are clearly empty suits, mindless politicians.
Dr. In his podcast recording, Kedar clearly states that Lapid’s support for the two-state solution plan will destroy the State of Israel. But in my humble opinion, this plan was born by idiots like Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin, Yossi Beilin and the rest of the clueless, reckless peacemakers. Like Lapid, they saw a rainbow of peace in the sky, not a gathering storm.
Attention, train the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu they did not go any harder on this issue. Unfortunately, he ran a 10 year moratorium policy on building freezes and operated under the belief that Israel was building in the LIBERATED areas of Yehuda and Shomron (Judea and Samaria); however, he erected Everest bureaucratic obstacles in front of any Jew who wanted to settle in the liberated areas or build a new community there.
This unreasonable policy continues unabated.
And this stupid policy of preventing Jews from settling anywhere in Judea and Samaria was and is being carried out to this day, while Arabs build there illegally anywhere and everywhere with impunity. And the Jews are shackled by the authorities who choose not to act, or even to remove the Arabs from where they put “feet on the ground.”
Yair Lapid is definitely a writer, not a fighter. He is not and will not fight for the state, country or security of Israel or its people. Why would anyone want him as prime minister?
A new approach must be adopted
In the post-truth age of the 21st centuryHoly century with so many lies spread through social media, with propaganda and active disinformation, the title of the 1967 Six Day War needs a name change to reflect the truth. The Six Day War freed the ancestral land of the Jewish people from the yoke of its illegal occupier, Jordan. It should change to, “The Six Day War Liberating Yehuda and Shomron.”
And the Oslo Accords must be declared a fraud and scrapped, scrapped, scrapped. The Oslo Accords were a mistake that must be corrected.
Because the difference between truth and lies can be the difference between life and death for the State of Israel.
