    A ďsecretĒ Facebook group of foreign correspondents and human rights activists quickly devolved into an anti-Israel hate-fest on Tuesday following the release of a new Israeli government report that cleared the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) of wrongdoing in the 2000 death of a Palestinian boy. The Israeli government report contests the claim that the IDF killed a Palestinian boy, Muhammad al-Durrah, in a famous 2000 incident in Gaza that helped ignite the Second Intifada. Journalists and activists mocked the report, attacked the IDF, and claimed pro-Israel lobbyists were influencing the media coverage, in a private Facebook group for foreign correspondents...

    Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch, has announced that he has launched a lawsuit against Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, for allegedly facilitating jihad against Israel. It seeks damages of up to $1 billion. WND reported earlier this week on strategies that were being developed on Facebook pages for thousands of people worldwide to "return" to the original homes of their families in "Palestine" on May 15. It was explained in an in-depth report by L. Barkan, a research fellow at the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media reports throughout the Middle East. He reported...

    Dispute rages over al-Durrah footage By Martin Patience BBC News, Jerusalem They were images broadcast all over the world. The TV footage of a young Palestinian boy, Muhammad al-Durrah, and his father cowering in front of a wall as Israeli forces and Palestinians exchanged gunfire at a crossroads in Gaza. The 12-year-old Muhammad was killed during the incident in September 2000. For Palestinians and many people around the world, the death - coming in the early weeks of the second Palestinian uprising - became a symbol of the brutality of the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza....

    PARIS (Reuters) - French Muslim leaders denounced on Thursday efforts to blame Muslims and Islam for recent riots in the country's rundown suburbs and said they saw worrying signs of growing prejudice against their faith here. ADVERTISEMENT Many young rioters may have been from Muslim backgrounds, but their violent outburst was a protest against unemployment, poor housing and other bias they faced because of their foreign origins, they told journalists. Urban violence, which some politicians in France and some media abroad portrayed as a kind of Muslim uprising, fell back to normal levels on Thursday after three weeks in which...

    Liberals in America are trying to take over the White House and dictate to a sitting president who should be on his personal staff. The media follows the president to foreign soil to hound him about "Plamegate," and all the while, parts of Europe are coming unglued. The liberal media in America barely mentions it. The media carefully sidesteps the fact that the riots in France are Islam-driven. The riots in Denmark are barely mentioned. The Muslim riots will spread and demands for Muslim autonomy will be made. This is just the beginning of the war for Europe. The second...

    Riots have now continued for eight days in and around Paris. Thursday night, November 3, Muslim rioters burned 315 cars. In the previous week, they torched 177 vehicles and burned numerous businesses, a post office, and two schools. They have rampaged through twenty towns and shot at police and firemen. In an episode that summed up the failure of Franceís efforts to create a domestic, domesticated Islam, when moderate Muslim leader Dalil Boubakeur, head of the Paris mosque, tried to restore calm, his car was pelted with stones and he had to rush away. The riots began on October 27...

    In a poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), results showed that over half of the participants support PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen)ís call among Palestinians to put an end to the militarization of the Intifada.

The poll revealed that 56.8% of the Palestinians support the call of Abbas to...
  • A Palestinian Account of the Four Years of the Intifada

    Palestinian columnists have recently published articles assessing the four years of the Intifada, in which they admitted that the grave harm caused to the Palestinians stemmed from their choice of suicide/martyrdom operations as the primary method of struggle. In addition, the PA's status as the leader of the Palestinian people has been undermined, and signs of anarchy in Palestinian society have increased. Some of the accounts described the Palestinians as closer to defeat than to victory, and complained about the lack of political achievements, lack of goals, and lack of strategic planning. The following are excerpts from the columns: A...

    I was halfway through Friday dinner with a group of old friends in Tel Aviv when I noticed that something was missing. All evening, the topic of conversation had been a scandal involving a second-rate Israeli pol named Paritsky and his dealings with the electrical company. Where were the Palestinians? In five visits to Israel since the fall of 2000, the intifadeh had been the invariable subject of dinner-table discussion. Suddenly, it went unmentioned. When I pointed this out, my friends shrugged. The intifadeh is so yesterday. Not that the Palestinians have stopped trying. Just days earlier, a bomb at...

Clean-cut with neatly coiffed hair, pressed beige jeans and a matching polo shirt with embroidered trim around the collar, the only thing that distinguishes this 26-year-old from the ordinary young men of Tul Karm is the AK-47 he brings with him when he emerges out of hiding for an afternoon rendezvous in an anonymous downtown...

    Many observers outside Israel were shocked that Ariel Sharon won last week's Likud party elections so easily. Sharon came to power on the promise that he'd make Israel safe. But since he took over two years ago, the Jewish state has suffered about 55 suicide bombings. Former PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Sharon's Likud rival, ran advertisements reminding people that during his three-year tenure between 1996 and 1999, the country suffered only four. Israelis are tragically sophisticated in such matters, however. Likud members know you can't compare the late '90s, when Oslo was still a going concern, to the all-out terror campaign...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) is struggling to fend off a barrage of civil suits - totalling Shk1.5bn ($324m) - submitted by Israelis for damages incurred during the intifada. Although Israeli courts have no jurisdiction over the occupied territories, some plaintiffs are trying to gain control of parts of some $600m in tax monies owed by Israel to the Palestinians since the conflict began in late 2000. Israel recently started transferring the funds after accepting new Palestinian financial controls to ensure transparency. This week, a Tel Aviv district court ruled in favour of a request by 37 Israeli hotels to freeze...

    More Palestinians are openly criticizing the strategy of suicide bombings and voicing mixed feelings about Arafat. JERUSALEM Ė After 21 months of open conflict, many Palestinians are rethinking two key elements of their struggle against Israel: their leader and the use of violence against Israeli civilians. Decades of backing Yasser Arafat and years of fighting Israel with suicide bombers have not produced any positive gains, a growing number of Palestinians now say. "There have been suicide bombings for years," says Fatheeyeh Budair, whose son Issa killed himself and 15 Israelis in a bombing near Tel Aviv in May. "And there...

    DUBAI: Sheikh Mohammed Sayyed Tantawi, the highest authority in Sunni Islam, said the Palestinian uprising against "Zionist injustice" must go on, in an interview published in the UAE daily Al-Khaleej. "The Palestinian intifada (uprising) against Zionist injustice and aggression is a holy war and a legitimate resistance", Sheikh Tantawi said. "That's why the intifada must go on, until the Palestinian people achieve their aim, even if it means more victims. We must not lose hope and submit to Zionist terrorism supported by America", he added. He also said that "martyr operations (suicide attacks) against the occupying army and armed settlers...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank - Some Palestinian parents are doing what Israeli tanks and bullets have been unable to do - stopping suicide bombers. Palestinian psychologists say a growing number of parents in the West Bank and Gaza have been seeking help to keep their children from becoming suicide bombers. "This has been happening more and more often in the last few months as the Palestinian resistance has deepened," said Mahmud Sehwail, the general director of the Treatment and Rehabilitation Center for Victims of Torture in Ramallah. "The parents say they have detected a significant change in the behavior of their...
