    Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas blamed the new US embassy in Jerusalem and the US recognition of the holy city as Israel's capital for his recent hospitalization. Abbas released a statement attributing his hospitalization to stress from current events. “If the story of Jerusalem put me in the hospital, the I leave and say that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.” "The health of the state is good, we will achieve our goal which is an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital,” he said. Abbas, 83, has a history of health problems and smokes heavily. He was discharged Monday...

    President Mahmoud Abbas was hospitalized with fever Sunday just days after undergoing surgery on his ear, an official said. The 83-year-old Abbas has endured a series of recent health scares which have revived anxiety over who will succeed him. A senior Abbas aide, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol, said the Palestinian leader was diagnosed with a fever on Sunday. Abbas had an ear operation last week, and returned to the hospital late Saturday for a follow-up. Saed Sarahneh, of Istishari Arab hospital, said late Sunday that “all tests are normal and his condition is reassuring.” He...
  • “History Lesson” From Mahmoud Abbas: You’ll Never Guess Who Backed The Creation Of Israel

    As Philip Klein points out, it’s a good thing that this “history lesson” comes from the Left’s favorite Palestinian moderate. Lord knows how this would have unfolded with a less rational personage than Mahmoud “Abu Mazen” Abbas. The Palestinian leader opened the first Palestinian National Council in 22 years yesterday, hoping to firm up his credibility enough to establish his preferred line of succession as well as unite Palestinians under his leadership. And what better way to accomplish this than some unadulterated and absolutely bat-s*** crazy anti-Semitic conspiracy theories? In a long and rambling at speech in Ramallah at...

    In this week's update, entitled "On the Brink", John looks at the UN Security Council, in particular, the lies and deceit spewed by Abbas in regards to a Palestinian State, the increasing pressure on Israel from Lebanon to the north, the recent revelation that the Russians are testing new equipment in Syria, including their new stealth fighter the SU-57, plus the gathering of forces that have Israel in her sights for eventual destruction. John ends his message with a stunning revelation of a recent discovery in Israel, which further substantiates the accuracy and dependability of God's Word.

    Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas told the United Nations Security Council that PA residents are the direct descendants of the Canaanites, claiming that ‘Palestine’ made significant contributions to humanity prior to the 1917 Balfour Declaration. During his address at the UN Security Council in which he called on the international community to hold a Middle East peace conference, with the goal of launching multilateral negotiations, Abbas claimed that the Arab residents of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza were in fact descended from the ancient Canaanites. "We are the descendants of the Canaanites who lived in the land of Palestine 5,000 years...

    UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov warned on Tuesday that Hamas-controlled Gaza on the verge of "full collapse", AFP reported. According to Mladenov, a key to saving Gaza from disaster was restoring the government of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas to power there, a decade after it was forced out by Hamas in a bloody coup. "Without that Gaza risks exploding in our face again, this time in a far more deadly and violent manner than in the past," Mladenov was quoted as having said at the annual conference of Israel's Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv....

    Davos. That's just about all you need to know. Those who do not have a relationship with Christ should be terrified at the direction the influencers in the world are going, where privacy will be sacrificed for health and where movers and shakers predict that man and machine will become one. The pursuit of a blissful and rewarding eternal life will not be achieved by man, unless he surrenders his pride and arrogance to the only One who can grant it. Otherwise, while they will exist eternally, just not in the way they choose and without excuse or escape.
