    Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas has announced that the PA is no longer committed to the 1994 Oslo Accords. In his UN General Assembly address Wednesday evening, Abbas wasted no time attacking Israel from the podium in New York. He began by repeating calls for a “two-state solution,” and condemning Israeli “settlements” in Judea and Samaria, as well as the blockade of Gaza. …

    Palestinians on Verge of Renouncing Oslo Accords Palestinian breach of legally binding accord puts to rest an agreement that was DOA. September 9, 2015 Ari Lieberman    Reports are emerging that the Palestinian Authority’s unelected “president” Mahmoud Abbas will soon announce the nullification of all past agreements with Israel, including the infamous 1993 Oslo Accords. Abbas will then declare “Palestine” to be a state under “occupation.” The architect of this new approach is none other than Saeb Erekat, a senior figure in Abbas’s inner circle and one of the PA’s primary rejectionist figures. It was Erekat who was the...
  • The Amazing Saga Of How Israel Turned Its F-15s Into Multi-Role Bombers

    When the F-15 was created, it was created to be a pure air-to-air fighter, with the philosophy of “not a pound for air-to-ground” guiding designers. So how did Israel end up turning their F-15s into deadly long-range multi-role strike aircraft well before the F-15E Strike Eagle became a reality? Here’s how. In Need Of A Game Changing Fighter Israel’s love affair with the F-15 began out of the need to procure a fighter that could trump the increasingly complex fighters that surrounding Arab states were amassing from Russian and French sources. Both the F-14 Tomcat and the F-15 Eagle were...

    The U.S. fears that without a cash injection, the Palestinian Authority could collapse, entailing serious security implications for Palestinians and Israelis. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the issue Saturday with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond in London. Kerry said the possibility of the Palestinian government halting security cooperation with Israel or disbanding because of its economic predicament was real. The U.S. is trying to find a solution. …
  • EU Accused of ‘Colonialism’ for Funding Illegal Arab Settlements (in Area C, Israel)

    A leading Israeli NGO has slammed the European Union over its alleged role in financing illegal Arab settlements in Judea and Samaria, saying its direct attempts to “subvert” Israeli internal affairs amounted to a form of “colonialism.” The remarks, made by the grassroots Im Tirzu organization, came in response to an article in the UK’s Daily Mail, which cited figures showing how the EU has channeled European taxpayers’ money into building some 400 homes and other buildings illegally in Area C of Judea and Samaria. Under the 1993 Oslo Accords—signed not only by Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but by...

    As parliaments in more and more European nations vote to recognize “Palestine,” European politicians insist they are doing so to promote the objective of an independent Palestinian state living in peace beside a secure Israel. But both the declared aims of Palestinian leaders and the pattern of European policy vis-a-vis Israel and the Palestinians give the lie to European averments of benign intent. Neither party of the divided Palestinian leadership has, to say the least, demonstrated an interest in peace with Israel. Hamas, now controlling Gaza and enjoying extensive popularity in the West Bank, openly trumpets its objective not only...

    The man known as Abu Abbas, whose name actually is Mohammed Abbas, was arrested by US commandos during a raid Monday night on the southern outskirts of Baghdad. He had been convicted in absentia in an Italian court for the Achille Lauro hijacking and sentenced to life in prison in 1986, but never served any time. During the hijacking, American Leon Klinghoffer, 69, was shot in his wheelchair and tossed overboard. The hijacking ended with the militants surrendering to Egyptian authorities. "Justice will be served," said Marine Maj. Brad Bartelt, a spokesman for US Central Command in Qatar. However, the...

    Since signing the Oslo agreement in 1993, Israel has made a series of astounding concessions, which did nothing but produce further Palestinian demands for even more far-reaching concessions. Indeed, as Jonathan Tobin rightly points out (Commentary, June, 16), the claim that “Israelis have blocked all other paths for the Palestinians except violence…is, to put it bluntly, a lie. It is the Palestinian Arabs who have consistently and repeatedly rejected offers of peace and statehood…” In an opinion piece “Terror apologists blame Israel for abduction”, Yedioth Aharonot’s Ben Dror Yemini, echoed Tobin’s assessment. …

    Israel’s Deputy Defense Minister has called on the Israeli government to “annul the Oslo Accords,” and adopt an alternative to the much-touted “Two State Solution” which would see the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. In an op-ed for the New York Times, MK Danny Danon insists that, twenty years after the signing of the Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, “The government of Israel must admit that we made a mistake and declare that the Oslo process has failed.” …

    President Shimon Peres said on Monday that he does not regret the Oslo Accords, despite the fact that their signing brought about hundreds of Israeli victims who were killed in terror attacks.Speaking in an interview with the Walla website, on the occasion of Israel’s 65th Independence Day, Peres said that terrorist attacks against Jews had taken place long before the signing of the Oslo Accords. “There were terror victims before the Oslo Accords. Before the Accords there was only one Palestinian camp and that camp supported terrorism. Now we have two camps, and one camp is against terrorism and in...

    Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs ^ | January 3, 2011 | Alan Baker
    Palestinian representatives at the UN have prepared a draft resolution that will seek to declare that Israeli settlements are "illegal and constitute a major obstacle to the achievement of peace." The issue of the legality of Israel's settlements policy has long been a central issue on the agenda of the international community. It is claimed that settlements are a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilians (1949). But both the text of that convention, and the post-World War II circumstances under which it was drafted, clearly indicate that it was never intended to refer to...

    Before delving into the question of what follows the death of the two-state solution we must get a certificate of death. This may prove to be more difficult than getting a certificate of live birth for President Obama. Everyone prefers to kick a dead horse, so to speak, than to acknowledge it is dead. The Arabs were against the creation of Israel in the first place. They opposed the Palestine Mandate, The Partition Plan, The Declaration of Independence by Israel and Resolution 242. In 1968 they decided at the Khartoum Conference on the three “no’s”; no recognition, no negotiation and...

    Let?s review a little history and make reference to the Oslo Accords, an agreement ?brokered by Norway after months of secret negotiations between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1993. By its terms, Israel and the PLO recognized each other. The PLO renounced terrorism, and Israel agreed to withdraw its military and civil authorities from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank town of Jericho, granting self-rule to Palestinians in these areas and a lesser degree of self-rule to other parts of the Occupied Territories.? From Wikipedia Once the Oslo Accords were signed, they were followed by their...

    Three weeks ago, Israeli police found a mosaic floor in an Arab car. The Antiquities Authority has confirmed that the floor be belongs to a previously undiscovered synagogue in the Ramallah area. Researchers from the Israeli Antiquities Authority believe that the mosaic formed part of an ancient synagogue floor because it contained depictions of Jewish symbols, such as the base of a menorah (a seven branched candelabrum), a lulav (palm branch), and dates. Another, no less interesting feature of the mosaic, are the words “Shalom (peace) on Israel” which are inscribed on it. At first, researchers thought the thieves had...

    It's not bad enough that the Israelis evacuated peaceful civilians from the Gaza Strip because the proposed new government there cannot stomach the idea of any Jews living in their country. Now Bill Clinton says Jews should send financial aid and technology to their anti-Semitic terrorist enemies there. That's what the former U.S. president told a group in Jerusalem gathered to mark the 10th anniversary of the assassination of Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin last weekend. Clinton also referred to the Oslo peace process – by any standard a total and abject failure – "our best chance for a lasting...

    What the World Should Know about Israel's Withdrawal from the Gaza Strip By Barry Rubin August 22, 2005 To withdraw from the Gaza Strip has been the most painful decision made by an Israeli government and the most traumatic political event for the country's people in decades. Indeed, such a voluntary relinquishment of territory captured in an ongoing war is virtually unprecedented in history. The choice to take this step was made by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from a belief that it would promote peace. Sharon's real positions since becoming prime minister in 2001 stand in sharp contrast to...

    Though few in the West understand this and fewer will admit it, peace is as far away as it was in 1993. The current situation of Israel and Israeli-Palestinian negotiations can only be described as bizarre. But understanding future events requires accurately describing what exists now. ** It is in the interests of pretty much everyone to pretend there is a real chance for a peace agreement and that there is progress. The reality is deadlock, with the Palestinian leadership incapable of making a treaty to end the conflict. ** Mahmoud Abbas's strategy seeks to reconcile radical rivals rather than...

    Former US President Jimmy Carter unleashed a fierce attack against the Israeli and American governments in his speech at the Geneva Initiative's ceremony in Switzerland. Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, blamed US President George W. Bush for anti-American sentiment and worldwide terror. "Bush's inordinate support for Israel allows the Palestinians to suffer," Carter said. "This is a source of anti-American sentiment in the world and encourages terror." Carter said Israel's settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and the security fence are the main obstacles to peace. He called repeatedly for the return of Palestinian refugees to the...

    The Palestinian Authority has launched a campaign for the release of a Palestinian terrorist captured in Iraq. PA Local Authorities Minister Saeb Erekat said the arrest of Abul Abbas, head of the Palestine Liberation Front, violates the 1995 accord with Israel that granted amnesty for all Palestinian insurgents. Erekat said the agreement was also signed by then-President Bill Clinton. "The Palestinian-Israeli interim agreement signed on September 28, 1995 stated that members of the Palestine Liberation Organization must not be detained or tried for matters they committed before the Oslo peace accord of September 13, 1993," Erekat said. "This interim agreement...

    Below is the full text of the proposed agreement between Hamas and the Palestine National Authority as it was published in the Egyptian Al-Ahram Weekly on September 20, 1995. According to Al-Ahram, a copy of the agreement was presented last month to the spiritual leader of the Hamas movement, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, inside his jail in Israel. An informed Palestinian source told Al Ahram Weekly that Sheikh Yassin has accepted the document in principle, expressing, however, the demand that more "religious fragrance" be added. Please note that paragraph (3) of the agreement respects "the commitments of the Palestinian Liberation Organization...
