Party Leader Lapid Talks Middle-Class, Two-State Solution

Mark Langfan By Monday, 22 December 2014 09:58 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Now that the Israeli elections are in full swing, everybody, and his aunt, is claiming they are centrists. You must be kidding me. Yair Lapid a centrist. Lapid is a two-state suicidalist who will cede the entire West Bank for just a mere promise of a photo op with Obama.

After the last Israeli elections, one of Lapid’s lackeys, the American-turned Israeli orthodox Rabbi Dov Lipman, made the rounds in America. Lipman bragged to my group, “It was easy. We just followed the Democratic-American-pollster, Mark Mellman’s strict advice — Only talk about four focus-group-tested issues about the middle-class.”

So, Lapid and his lap dogs were under strict orders from his Democrat-Kerry-approved-pollster Mellman on how to hoodwink the entire Israeli public on the Israeli security issue simply by not talking about it. Lapid talks the talk of the middle class, but, walks the walk of a Two-State suicide solution. But, under Mellman’s orders — Just talk middle-class, don’t mention the two-state solution, because it will lose votes.

Am I exaggerating? Guess what, on Mark Mellman’s own company website, Mellman posted an article by the extremist-leftist Chemi Shalev who wrote an arch-leftist Ha’artez puff-piece extolling Mellman’s strategy as the “Secret of Lapid’s Success: Mark Mellman.” Now, if the arch-leftist-suicidalist Chemi Shalev wrote a Ha’aterz puff-piece extolling Mellman’s success with Lapid, it’s easy to conclude that Mellman’s success  was Israel’s catastrophic failure.

It’s gets better. Now, hear it from straight from Ha’aretz’s Chemi Shalev, and then from Mellman’s own words describing how Mellman played the Israeli public as utter idiots, as posted on Mellman’s own company website in order for Mellman’s Company to get more customers. (ps. I’ve already saved all the Mellman Groups’s Web pages so don’t bother taking the article off your website): “Mellman ascribes Lapid’s stunning success in last Tuesday’s Israeli election to the candidate’s personality and traits — and to the campaign’s decision to focus, almost exclusively, on the single message of looking out for the interests of the middle class.

“One of the key lessons of campaigning,” he [Mellman] says, “is that you have to focus, and that was our focus. Talking about other issues tended to dilute that focus. Talking about the Palestinians and the peace process may not have been detrimental, but it wasn’t helpful either. And when you’re starting from scratch, you have to gain votes, not just not lose them.” I only added “[Mellman]” for clarity.

Now, in Mellman’s words, Lapid’s “Talking about the Palestinians and the peace process . . . . wasn’t helpful either.” So, Mellman’s advice to Lapid and his coterie of lapdogs: Under penalty of electoral-death, don’t talk about the most central issue to Israelis that Yair Lapid will create a Palestinian terrorist West Bank State that will fire Sarin-tipped katyusha rockets into Tel Aviv, just talk about the middle class.

So, if Likud doesn’t expose Lapid as a rabid-leftist, be sure Lapid’s Kerry-appointed leftist-American handler will successfully repeat his bait and switch on the Israeli public, and steal the moderate vote with Mellman’s bag full of distractions.
