    Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has handed over a historic request to UN chief Ban Ki-moon asking the United Nations to admit the state of Palestine as a full member. The Palestinian leader won huge applause and a standing ovation on Friday from some of the assembly as he entered the hall before beginning his speech. Abbas said he was ready to return to the negotiations, saying he did not want to isolate or delegitimize Israel. "Here I declare that the Palestine Liberation Organization is ready to return immediately to the negotiating table on the basis of the adopted terms of...

    Please pray for me. I am in meetings with Iranian leaders at the hotel where Ahmadinejad is staying, giving them my testimony! Bill O'Reilly has asked for my help arranging an interview for tomorrow on Fox News. I am standing for Israel as your ambassador. Almost thirty years ago when I anointed Benjamin Netanyahu with oil and prayed with him, I told him he would be prime minister of Israel twice. My prayer ended with, “the second time will be the gravest days of Israel’s history.” The following day, I shared the prophecy with then Prime Minister Menachem Begin and...

    A top Palestinian official said Wednesday that President Mahmoud Abbas would accept no political delays on his bid for membership in the United Nations, rejecting mounting pressure from the United States and France to first return to negotiations with Israel. The Palestinians plan to submit their letter of application on Friday when Abbas is to speak to the U.N. General Assembly, but he faced a withering lack of support as the world body opened its annual meeting. President Barack Obama said there could be no "shortcuts" in the quest for Middle East peace, a message that was echoed by French...

    NEW YORK – Palestinian Authority officials expressed deep regret and anger over US President Barack Obama’s speech at the UN on Wednesday and reiterated the PA’s position for agreeing to the resumption of peace talks with Israel. They said that despite Obama’s opposition, the PA would go ahead with its plan to submit a request for full membership of a Palestinian state to the Security Council on Thursday. Some of the PA officials described Obama’s speech as a “stab in the back” to the Palestinians. [....] But while Abbas’s spokesman was careful not to criticize Obama in public, other members...
  • 1921-2011 anniversaries in Arabs' racist war on Israel/Jews - unrelated to "occupation" excuse

    Some anniversaries in Arabs' racist war on Israel/Jews 1921-2011 Within a few days, next to the term "Palestine" we are bound to be subject to hear that filthy blanket-for-Arab-crimes: "occupation" mantra [this despite the falsehood of the term, like, for instance, that the Arab "Palestinians" never really 'HAD' the disputed territories, nevertheless], being thrown around at the Arab lobby's hijacked United Nations. Let's put, then, some anniversaries in perspective, especially their pre-1967 anti-Israel, or more accurately anti-Jewish war. 1921 - The founder of the Arab-Israeli conflict, infamous agitator Haj amin al-Husseini is appointed the Mufti [Islamic supreme authority] of Palestine...

    For many liberal pundits, the blame for the circus that will unfold this week at the UN with the start of a debate over Palestinian statehood is to be assigned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu whom they wrongly claim has obstructed peace talks. Others are inclined, with more justice, to put the onus for the problem on Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas whose pursuit of UN recognition of statehood without first making peace with Israel is seen as both futile and counter-productive to the end that he claims to seek. But the lion's share of the blame ought to fall...

    Palestinian Authority officials on Saturday threatened the United States saying vetoing its statehood bid in the United Nations Security Council next week would "destroy" the so-called two-state solution. The warning came hours after PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced in a speech in Ramallah that he would ask the UN Security Council to accept membership of a PA state despite a firm US warning the move would fail. Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat warned a US veto would not only destroy the two-state solution, but could lead to the dismantling of the PA. .....

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Facing a U.N. showdown over Palestinian statehood, President Barack Obama plans talks with feuding Israeli and Turkish leaders and renewed efforts to revive Middle East peace talks in a diplomatic push next week to ease rising regional tensions. Obama will meet Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu separately on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, the White House said on Friday. The president will urge the two U.S. allies to heal a damaging diplomatic split over the 2010 killing of Turkish activists in a Gaza-bound aid convoy, a...

    U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday that the Palestinian Authority's bid for recognition at the United Nations is a "distraction" that will not result in viable statehood, AFP reported. Obama, who spoke in a roundtable discussion with journalists, added, however, that Israel would "hurt itself" if it retaliated to any unilateral PA action by withdrawing resources that in any way harmed the PA's self-policing efforts. Obama said the PA's tactics would not solve the problem of statehood, adding, "This issue is only going to be resolved by Israelis and Palestinians agreeing on something." The president said that "what happens...

    The US on Wednesday officially asked the Palestinian Authority to abandon its plan to ask the UN later this month to recognize a Palestinian state along the pre-1967 lines. The request was relayed to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas by US envoy David Hale during a meeting in Ramallah, Palestinian officials said. The meeting was attended by US envoy Dennis Ross and US Consul-General in Jerusalem, Daniel Rubenstien. The officials said that the US envoys did not carry any new proposals for reviving the peace process. One official told The Jerusalem Post that he did not rule out the possibility...

    Hamas co-founder Mahmoud Zahar hinted Tuesday there may be attempts on Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas should he visit Gaza. In an interview with the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi, Zahar added Abbas would not be visiting Gaza. Zahar stressed that Hamas was not interested in jeopardizing the internal security situation in the Gaza Strip should Abbas decide to visit and cause internal Fatah violence to occur as a result of "unsettled accounts." According to al-Quds al-Arabi, Zahar may have been referring to the ongoing conflict between the Palestinian Authority chairman and ex-Fatah official and strident Abbas critic Muhammad Dahlan. Recently, pointing...

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has expressed his personal support for the president of Sudan, Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, who has been charged in the International Criminal Court with being responsible for the genocide in Darfur, Palestinian Media Watch reported. In a letter to the Sudanese president, Abbas wrote that he and PA Arabs "have complete faith in the wisdom of President Omar Al-Bashir." PMW's Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik note that in 2008, evidence was presented in the International Criminal Court of Justice that showed that "Al-Bashir committed the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in...

    A delegation of Democratic members of Congress met with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas yesterday and received a blunt message about his vision for the state he hopes to lead. If he gets the independent Palestinian he says he wants, it will have no Jewish settlements. This demand for an ethnically cleansed Palestine would mean the forced removal of all Jews living in the territories. Since he is calling for that state to exist in all of the territory of the West Bank, Gaza and the part of Jerusalem that was illegally occupied by Jordan from 1949 to 1967, that

Voice of Israel radio presented Dahlan’s remarks which he made to a Kuwaiti-based newspaper. According to the report, Dahlan said that Abbas is “trying to establish a dictatorship in a period of post-dictatorships. Those who cannot bend the law according to their liking turn to methods of bullying.” Dahlan made the comments in the wake of Thursday’s raid by the PA on his Ramallah home. During the raid, armed police locked Dahlan in a room and...
