  • CNN wonders: Did Israel strike Gaza because they celebrated the reconciliation agreement?

    Well, only if one counts rockets fired into Israel as “celebration.” The IDF struck targets in Gaza this week as Hamas continued firing rockets at civilian targets in Israel, which happened to coincide with the announcement of the Palestinian reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah. CNN’s Jim Clancy spends four minutes discussing the agreement with PLO official Hanan Ashrawi without once mentioning the years-long rocket attacks from Gaza by Hamas, or even whether the PLO will push Hamas to stop the attacks now that it’s back in the Palestinian Authority government. However, as soon as former ambassador Dore Gold appears...
  • Ashrawi: Recognizing Israel Like 'Legalizing Racism'

    Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official Hanan Ashrawi said on Saturday that Israel's demand that the PA recognize it as a Jewish state is an attempt to “legalize racism,” reports the Ma’an news agency. Ashrawi, a member of the PLO’s Executive Committee, said that defining Israel as a Jewish state would signify that any Jewish person would have the right to return to “Palestine”, while Palestinian Arabs would lose that right. Israel wants to "create a narrative that denies the Palestinian presence, rights, and continuity on the historic Palestinian lands," she charged, in a conversation with Ma’an. She also claimed that...
  • EU Denies it is Postponing Labelling of 'Settlement' Products

    The European Union on Monday denied a report in the Israeli media that it was delaying a decision to label products from Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, AFP reported. On Sunday, the Haaretz newspaper reported that the EU had delayed labelling the products to the end of June at the request of the United States. "Contrary to what was recently reported in the Israeli media, work on the effective enforcement of EU legislation with regard to the labelling of settlement products has not been delayed. Nor has the EU been asked to postpone such work," a statement...
  • Another stunner behind Obama's Libya doctrine (R2P- Holocaust denier helped devise policy)

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...
  • The Jihadi Journalist (Debbie Schlussel Says There's Nothing Laudatory About Peter Jennings Alert)

    Jihadi Journalist: The Real Peter Jennings By Debbie Schlussel While the rest of the world is blindly singing the praises of Peter Jennings, here's a reality check: Peter Jennings did more for the cause of Islamic terrorism than any media figure today. And that's nothing to celebrate, honor, or even memorialize. Before there was Al Jazeerah, there was Peter Jennings. From the beginning of Jennings career until his death, Jennings' biased coverage went beyond the pale, bending over backward in "understanding" the terrorists who hate us-- from seeing "their side" when he covered the seige and then murder of innocent...
  • Protest the Sydney Peace Prize awarded to (PA Terrorism Apologist) Hanan Ashrawi

    Protest Sydney Peace Prize to Hanan Ashrawi To: NSW Premier Bob Carr The Sydney Peace Foundation and Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (under the auspices of the University of Sydney) have decided to award its annual peace prize to Hanan Ashrawi. As detailed below, Hanan Ashrawi is a prominent official of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, and this prize makes a mockery of the peace studies, while providing direct evidence of the claim that many such programs have become synonymous with support for violence and terrorism. We therefore call on the University of Sydney and Mr Bob Carr, the Premier...
  • Sydney's peace prize hijacked

    Daily Telegraph (Australia) ^ | 10/23/03 | Piers Akerman
    The selection of long-time PLO advocate and Arafat ally Hanan Ashrawi for the Sydney Peace Prize makes a mockery of the award. Dr Ashrawi doesn't meet the key criteria nominated by those behind the prize – a commitment to the principles and philosophy of non-violence. Commitment to non-violence means a total rejection of armed struggle and Dr Ashrawi has not done this. Mahatma Gandhi must be spinning in his hand-spun dhoti. She doesn't fulfil the other major element either – having made no significant contributions to global peace. In fact the selection of Hanan Ashrawi by the Sydney Peace Foundation...

    Sweden's Foreign Minister: "Israel is losing its moral values" By HERB KEINON After months of relative quiet from Stockholm, Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh again raised eyebrows in Jerusalem with a speech Thursday in which she blasted the Israeli election results and put down Israel’s democracy. Speaking at an award ceremony in Stockholm where Hanan Ashrawi was awarded the 2002 Olof Palme Award, named after the slain Swedish prime minister, Lindh – in a speech full of praise for Ashrawi - said "I fear that the Palestinian people soon will lose all hope of an independent state, and that Israel...

    Confusion at Colorado College Posted: September 4, 20021:00 a.m. Eastern © 2002 WorldNetDaily.com On Sept. 12, the second day of the second year of America's war on terror, Colorado College will host a symposium titled: "September 11: One Year Later." The symposium may not yield much insight into the war, but it tells us all a great deal about the moral confusion that dominates this campus and, I suspect, hundreds of others. As the first speaker on the first day of the conference – the "keynote speaker" according to the college – Colorado College has selected Hanan Ashrawi, a longtime spokeswoman for...
  • Peter Jennings Really Loves Palestinians

    MRC CyberAlert guru Brent Baker writes on ABC News anchor Peter Jennings's ardor for all things Palestinian. "A few CyberAlert readers have e-mailed to remind me that a possible explanation of Jennings’ view lies in the fact that he not only lived in Beirut for several years during the 1970s, but also had a relationship with a woman long-affiliated with the PLO, Hanan Ashrawi, now an official of the Palestinian Authority."
