New York --- September 23, 2011 .... Dozens of Palestinians, awaiting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' speech to the UN, have attacked an Israel security checkpoint between Jerusalem and Rahmallah. The IDF has responded with the use of non lethal tear gas to disperse the demonstrators at Kalandiya. The IDF and ISA have intercepted several suicide bombers at this security checkpoint in recent years.
The Israel police have mobilized over 22,000 officers and elite (MAGAV) border police to join thousands of IDF soldiers as Israel goes on the highest level of preparedness ahead of Islamic prayers today in support of their application for UN approval of statehood.
Israel Police Inspector-Gen. Yochanan Danino said that security forces have been deployed across Israel with a special emphasis on Jerusalem. That most of the activity was that of INTEL to address security challenges in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, the Lebanon, Syria border and throughout Israel before they manifest.
"Our goal is awareness, trying to be aware of situations before we need to use force," he said after the meeting. "The quiet is continuing and we haven't seen any evidence that people are preparing to disturb the peace," he said.
The Israel Defense Forces says it has gone on high alert for what it is calling an imminent Hamas attack along its southern border with Egypt. Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich, an IDF spokeswoman, says there is "concrete intelligence" that Hamas and other terror groups are trying to infiltrate the border.
In New York, PA President Mahmoud Abbas has declared his application for statehood for a state of Palestine today at the UN and will request that the Security Council endorses this unilateral move. US President Obama told Abbas yesterday that the US would veto any move for a state of Palestine at this time due to a lack of direct talks between the PA and Israel.

Many view the UN vote for Palestine as nothing more than the most elaborate PR stunt ever created by the enemies of Israel. And the PLO, Hamas and Islamic Jihad are not messing around. They have hired a professional PR firm Bell Pottinger with a $30K monthly retainer for providing strategic communications advice to the general delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organization to get their messages out - not just in Jerusalem but throughout the US and into the New York subway system with billboards declaring that they want "peace and justice".
These wolves in sheep clothing are the same ones responsible for Islamic terror attacks in Israel, London, Paris, New York and Washington. We do remember 9/11?
That this is not an issue about land for peace but rather Islamic Jihad or Holy War against all Jews and Christians.
One only has to look at the facts, a quick glance of history that there was never a Palestine or Palestinian people. Before the 1967 Middle East war the West Bank was Jordan. The myth of Palestine was created by Yassir Arafat after he tried to throw over the government of Jordan in September 1970, failed and was exiled to Lebanon.
Arafat had great PR as the PA, Hamas and Islamic Jihad enjoy oil rich Arab dollars from Iran, Syria and other Arab states to pay for public relations. Israel on the other hand suffers in PR as the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not have the manpower nor the budget to pay even one professional PR firm to confront the present UN vote for Palestine. A small group of professional PR people step up to volunteer as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs approaches Jewish Federations for money to pay these professionals and are given a no.
The issue of Palestine is not about the Palestinian people. The so called Palestinian people were given the opportunity to have their own state back in 1948 and rejected it. Instead they joined Arab armies to destroy the newly created modern Israel and in having lost that war, have been absorbed by democratic Israel. Arabs living in Israel have never had it so good. Health care is paid for, they enjoy freedom of religion and speech, are able to vote, are represented in the Knesset and have a growing economy. Israeli Arabs shop in the same stores as Jews and their children play in the same parks with Jewish children.
Any real talk of Apartheid comes from the Palestinians.
The PLO ambassador to the US said this week that any future Palestine it seeks with help from the United Nations must be free of Jews.
"After the experience of the last 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated," Maen Areikat, the PLO ambassador, said during a meeting with reporters.
Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other religion since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was judenrein, or cleansed of Jews, said Elliott Abrams, a former US National Security Council official.
As Abbas makes his declaration for an Apartheid state called Palestine, we can expect Hamas and Islamic Jihad to wage as much terrorism against Israel as they can, while Abbas says that it is not the PA.
The PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their financial backers in Iran, Syria and throughout the Arab world want only one thing, and they have openly declared it - the complete and total destruction of Israel. As they make these declarations, Arab leaders in Iran, Syria, Turkey and throughout the Arab world continue to use the Palestinian people as a mean of deflecting the local and global media away from their own domestic problems of poverty and a lack of human rights.
Arab leaders want Jewish and Palestinian blood to flow as it makes better headlines than torture and lack of democracy in their nations.
All Israel wants is peace. Willing to create a state of Palestine. But a peaceful state of Palestine which is not ruled by Islamic law that calls for the murder of all Infidels - both Jewish and Christian.
This morning New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg visited the 9/11 memorial with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Radical Islam is threatening moderate Arab and Muslim regimes," said Netanyahu.
"Terrorism is their tool," he said. "We are in a decade of terrorism."
"The threat is against all of us, against the regimes and the stability in the Middle East, against the security of Israel, against the safety of Europe and the United States, and, in my opinion, also against the safety and stability of Russia and many other states," he said. "The struggle is not over. We are still in its midst."
He warned that, if radical Islamists gained control of weapons of mass destruction, the threat would become "immeasurably greater."
In his speech at the UN today, Netanyahu invited Abbas to sit down and speak peace while they are still inside the same building.
"In two and a half years, we met in Jerusalem only once, even though my door has always been open to you," said Netanyahu. "If you wish, I'll come to Ramallah. Actually, I have a better suggestion. We've both just flown thousands of miles to New York. Now we're in the same city. We're in the same building. So let's meet here today in the United Nations. Who's there to stop us? What is there to stop us? If we genuinely want peace, what is there to stop us from meeting today and beginning peace negotiations?"
In the hours ahead it is critical to remember that Abbas and the majority of Muslim Arabs are not talking about "peace and justice" but rather Islamic Jihad.
Abbas will not meet Netanyahu today or tomorrow or next week. Islamic Jihad does not allow it.
A Facebook group, Vote NO to a Hamas led UN Palestine Terror State, has been established. Please join it if you believe in peace and democracy in the Middle East.
Dear Mr. Abbas;
My message to you is the same you and your kind have given Israel for decades: I DO NOT RECOGNIZE YOUR RIGHT TO EXIST.
Furthermore, I do not recognize Palestinians or other militant “Muslims” as the equals of any Jewish, Christian, or Hindu civilization. Militant Islam has nothing to offer its followers but dirt, ignorance, squalor, violence, and death. It is not a religion but an ideology for dirt-ignorant Dark Age savages.
The original is Grant Hamilton's "The Spanish Brute" from 1898, and hence in the public domain due to age. The difference is that the Spanish were probably innocent of the crimes of which the Yellow Press ("You supply the pictures and I'll supply the war") accused them while it would take several pages to even list as single-sentence entries what the Palestinians have done.
