  • Proactive Redemption in Responding to Palestinian Violence

    BESA: Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies ^ | Oct. 11, 2015 | Maj. Gen. (res.) Gershon Hacohen IDF
    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Those who view Israel as a stepping stone for redemption and as the Jewish national spiritual homeland will act differently in responding to Palestinian violence than those who view Israel merely as a safe haven. Thus, the government should do more than just approve security operations against the terrorists. It should approve increased construction in Judea and Samaria and in Jerusalem.

  • Bush's 'Palestine' plan upstaged

    WASHINGTON AND JERUSALEM - President Bush seemed poised early this week to put Palestinian statehood on the fast track. But by announcing a new policy of retaking Palestinian-controlled land in response to acts of terrorism, Israel appears to be changing the timetable – if not the outcome – of the Bush administration's efforts. Taken after this week's devastating suicide bombing in Jerusalem, the Israeli policy might be seen as a natural outgrowth of a strategy set forth by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon since he took office in March 2001. But the announcement also throws a wrench in US plans to...

    France will recognize a Palestinian state if its efforts in coming weeks to try to break the deadlock between Israelis and Palestinians fail, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Friday. "France will engage in the coming weeks in the preparation of an international conference bringing together the parties and their main partners, American, European, Arab, notably to preserve and make happen the solution of two states," he said. Fabius said that as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, France had a responsibility to try to keep up efforts to find a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.

    In an article published on National Public Radio's (NPR) website Monday, a map of the Middle East failed to include Israel, labeling Palestine in its place. The map was an illustration accompanying the article "What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears." The article referenced travelers' fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region. Immediately following the publication, the website's comment section was flooded with criticism from readers and journalists who questioned the online publication's decision to use an illustration of this nature. As a result of the abundance of complaints, NPR removed the photo and...

    "I'm proud of him." That's what the father of Dafna Meir's murderer said when the Palestinian media asked him what he thinks of his cold-blooded son Murad Adais. On Sunday afternoon, Adais butchered Meir in her home, in front of her children. Whether Adais Sr. is really happy that his son will rot in prison is less important than the fact that he said what he said to his home crowd. He knows that his audience thinks his son is a hero. And so he played to his audience. Since last September when the Palestinians began their current terrorist onslaught,...

    A senior member of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas's inner circle has insisted that any "two-state solution" with Israel would merely be a "phase" in the ultimate dismantlement of the State of Israel. Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi made the comments in a recent interview with Ma'an TV - the same interview in which he made widely-publicized comments defending Nazi leader Adolf Hitler as "not corrupt" and calling him "daring." Tirawi began by expressing satisfaction with the ongoing "intifada" - referring to the wave of terrorist attacks against Israelis - which he said had succeeded in "uniting the Palestinian...

    Israel's prime minister has denounced a call by Sweden's foreign minister to investigate whether recent killings of Palestinians were "extrajudicial". Benjamin Netanyahu said Margot Wallstrom's remarks were "outrageous... immoral and... stupid". Ms Wallstrom had called for "thorough and credible investigations" into the deaths. Some 155 Palestinians - mostly attackers, Israel says - have been killed in unrest since October. In that time, 26 Israelis have been killed in stabbing, shooting or car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli-Arabs. The attackers who have been killed have either been shot dead by their victims or security forces. Others have been arrested. On Tuesday,...

    In a new batch of released emails from former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, a former US diplomat suggested to Clinton that she push the Palestinians to form Arab Spring-like protests against Israel to push the government to make fresh overtures towards a two-state solution. Thomas Pickering, a former US ambassador to Israel, wrote to Clinton on December 18, 2011 that she should recommend sparking Palestinian demonstrations, led by female protesters, to force Israel to re-enter peace negotiations. The protests, which also called on Israeli Jews to hold parallel demonstrations against the government, should be led by and attended by...

    When we planned our recent trip to Israel with 50 other Northern Virginians, we didn't expect that it would coincide with the latest spasm of Palestinian violence against Israelis. We didn't anticipate that this new war would be more insidious than past "intifadas," with almost daily violence coming out of nowhere, with no warning, rhyme or reason. No one is exempt. Old people have been stabbed and brutalized on city streets; so have young mothers with toddlers, rabbis in study halls, students in cars, people praying. Soldiers have been attacked at checkpoints. Children have been forced to watch their parents...

A student, who is Palestinian, hung a Palestinian flag outside his dorm room window at Shenkman Hall. It was reported to the administration police department because it was prohibited that an object be hung outside windows on campus. The student complied and the police officer wrote a report. But, what happened was that the report triggered an automatic warning letter to the student. The student believed he was being unduly singled out for having a...

Working as a volunteer in the Temple Mount Sifting Project, he found a 3,000-year-old seal—engraved limestone about the size of a thimble, with a hole at one end so it could be hung from a string—from the time of King David. The artifact was nestled in the hundreds of tons of earth and rock that had been illegally excavated from below the Temple Mount in the late 1990s by the Muslim Waqf, a trust that retains authority over the contested site.

The protest, organized by the vitriolic Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), followed in style and substance an equally debased display of moral self-righteousness at Berkeley, where a similar gathering on October 13th saw protesters...

Some of us live by the Spamalot song: Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life. In this case there are at least two direct benefits of ISIS. The first and the most prominent is the complete dismantling of the idea that peace in the Middle East will come if only the Israelis will make peace with...

Secretary of State John Kerry’s claims, parroted by his spokesmen, that Israel is either entirely to blame for Palestinian terrorism or shares the blame equally with the Palestinians, are baseless lies. Kerry and his spokesmen have alleged that the current Palestinian convulsion of murderous violence is a product of “a massive increase in settlements.” Yet as Haaretz reported this week, Israel has built fewer homes for Jews in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria since 2009, when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (and President...

    There are numerous factors that contribute to Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israel, including the history of the region, the Islamic religion, and the difficulties faced by Palestinians because of what they view as “the occupation.” But there is another important aspect of the conflict that cannot be ignored, namely, demographics. The inhabitants of the West Bank and Gaza Strip are disproportionately young, and a youth-heavy population is one that is typically marked by violence, rebellion, and social upheaval. In this case, most of the anger is directed towards Israel, making for a situation that could explode at any moment. Using...

The site, where Jews go to pray, was badly damaged. It came hours after Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu called on the Palestinian leadership to stop a wave of attacks. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas condemned the arson and said the site would be repaired. Elsewhere in the occupied West Bank, a Palestinian disguised as a news photographer stabbed and moderately wounded an Israeli soldier, the Israeli military said....

    Many of our policy debates and conflicts both domestic and foreign call on history to validate their positions. At home, crimes from the past like slavery and legal segregation are used to justify present policies ranging from racial set asides to housing regulations long after those institutions have been dismantled. Abroad, our jihadist enemies continually evoke the Crusades, “colonialism,” and “imperialism” as justifications for their violence. Yet the “history” used in such fashion is usually one-sided, simplistic, or downright false. Nor is the reason hard to find: as we read in 1984, “Who controls the past . . . controls...

    In front of the United Nations General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not only stare for forty seconds into the eyes of the world’s representatives, charging them of having kept silent in the face of Iran’s promise to destroy Israel. Netanyahu also pulled out a book in Farsi. The author is the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and he writes that “within 25 years there will be no more Israel”. There is a date recurring obsessively in the proclamations of the leaders of the Arab-Islamic world: 2022. It is the year that they have reserved for the end of...

    By Daniel Tauber Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — October 15, 2015 … While Israelis are being chased by wild Palestinians armed with their kitchen knives, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is busy betraying Israel, again. Let us recall the first time Kerry betrayed Israel. Shortly after he was appointed Secretary of State, he initiated Israeli-Palestinian negotiations he believed could end a one-hundred year-old conflict in nine months. Though Israel had previously frozen Jewish construction in Judea for ten-months as part of a U.S. attempt to initiate negotiations, and although the Palestinian Authority still refused to negotiate, Kerry urged Israel...

    “When I See Them I See Us” is the newest catch phrase of Black Lives Matter and Pro-Palestinian activists. So what on earth do these two movements have in common? In a video released just today, African American and Palestinian activists answered that question. “What do Gaza and Ferguson have to do with one another? If you ask the black and Palestinian artists and activists who just released a new solidarity video, a lot … Harass, beaten, torture, dehumanized, stopped and frisked…” and the list goes on and on. In a nutshell, self-proclaimed victimhood. The solidarity video is aimed at...
  • It’s a POGROM not an Intifada

    Pogrom: Jews defiling the Temple Mount with their "filthy feet." Dear Mr. Netanyahu: It’s a POGROM not an Intifada “The settlers’ presence is illegal, and therefore every measure taken against them is legitimate and legal.” Another pogrom in the 21st century is taking place-in Israel the Jewish state. It’s based on the latest blood libel-the Jews defiling the Temple Mount with their “filthy feet.” Here are some still shots of the video. The video has been removed because of the policy violation regarding hate speech.

    All the Palestinian terrorist attacks that have been carried out in recent weeks share one common feature. All the terrorists believe that by attacking Jews they are protecting the Temple Mount from destruction. And why shouldn’t they believe this obscenity? Everywhere they go, every time they turn on their televisions, read the paper, go to school or the mosque they are told that the Jews are destroying al-Aksa Mosque. Al-Aksa, they are told, is in danger. They must take up arms to defend it from the Jews, whatever the cost. One man stands at the center of this blood libel....

    Time the United Nations woke up and restored its own credibility. PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s speech to the UN General Assembly last week contained a concoction of half-truths and outright lies that everyone who listened to him should question. Here are some prize porkies: “The question of Palestine was one of the first just issues brought before the United Nations from the time of its inception, and yet it remains unresolved until this moment”
  • Palestine: Gaza, one year after, Palestinians still suffocated by Israeli occupation

    10/04/2015 3:02:44 AM PDT · by PghBaldy · 15 replies
    A year after the 51-day war in Gaza, hundreds of Palestinians with devastating injuries from the Israeli assault still fill the waiting rooms of Médecins Sans Frontičres (MSF) in need of complex reconstructive surgeries and physical rehabilitation. With the continued blockade and siege of Gaza, it is as if the latest of round of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed had just ended. Today, perhaps more than at any time in its 20-year history of providing medical and psychological care in Gaza and the West Bank, MSF sees how the suffering wrought by the Israeli occupation has become normalized and how an end to...

    A new report confirms more White House woes with our ally Israel. A Politico exclusive reveals that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid confronted White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on two occasions to ask President Obama to reject a UN resolution that would grant Palestine statehood. Both times, Obama gave him the silent treatment. While Reid has previously shown his support for Israel, his latest request may not exactly have been for the Middle Eastern country’s best interests. The timing suggested he was trying to secure passage for the Iran Deal: The requests from Reid came as he was...

    MAHMOUD ABBAS addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday in his capacity as "President of State of Palestine," or so the official text posted on the UN website identifies him. In reality, Abbas is no more the lawful president of Palestine than George W. Bush is the lawful president of the United States. Both were sworn in for four-year terms in January 2005. Those terms expired more than six years ago. If Bush had appeared before the UN plenum this week and presumed to announce a change in American policy, he would have been thought delusional and jeered off...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told world leaders Wednesday that he is no longer bound by agreements that have defined relations with Israel for the past two decades and are meant to form the basis for a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict. But what sounded like a potentially explosive declaration was blunted by the lack of any detail on how he plans to move forward. Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Abbas said Israel had repeatedly violated its commitments, most notably by expanding settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, on lands the Palestinians...

    Responding to parents who complained about the distribution at public schools of a map which labeled Israel as “Palestine,” the City of Paris said it was the result of “a simple production error.” The city’s media department gave the explanation in a statement it published Friday about the distribution earlier this year to elementary school pupils of a calendar that contains a map of Europe and parts of the Middle East. The map, which ends north of central Israel and the West Bank, designates the territory of Israel included in it as “Palestine,” alongside Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. In...
