    TEL AVIV – Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told KleinOnline. The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders – meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem. The negotiator further revealed when it comes to dividing Jerusalem, Obama wants to rehash what is known as the...

    PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Sunday promised someday the PA flag would fly over “Jerusalem, eternal capital of the state of Palestine.” Thousands of people greeted Abbas rapturously upon his return from the United Nations, where the General Assembly granted the PLO, representing the PA, upgraded status as a nonmember observer state. "Raise your heads high, because you are Palestinians!” Abbas told the joyous crowd, waving PA flags in the PA capital of Ramallah, located in Samaria. "You have proof that you are stronger than the occupation, because you are Palestinians... stronger than the settlements, because you are Palestinians. "We were...

    Should Christians support the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state? This has long been an important question. But it’s particularly relevant this week. On Thursday, the Palestinian leadership will ask the United Nations General Assembly to vote on a resolution that will give them enhanced international legal status, not quite a full sovereign state, but very close. The resolution is expected to pass decisively. France, Russia, China and most nations of the world have indicated they will vote “yes” on the resolution. That’s right, the world is poised to say yes to a sovereign Palestinian state despite the fact that...

    The bad news? This will undo any bit of goodwill we might have earned by siding with the people against their governments during the Arab Spring. The good news? The next big apology speech O gives in Cairo is shaping up to be a doozy. Palestinian officials have so far enlisted the support of at least six or seven members of the 15-member Security Council in their bid to gain United Nations recognition as a sovereign state, a senior official said Tuesday…For any decision to pass in the 15-member Council, nine affirmative votes are needed, as well as no veto...

    The vote’s on Friday. Hillary, Tony Blair, and other diplomats have been frantically negotiating with them for the past week to get them to reconsider — but so far, Abbas won’t bend. Gosh, I wonder why. A poll released Monday by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research found 83 percent of Palestinians support the unilateral declaration, and half of respondents said they would join any demonstrations that might break out in its wake. Elsewhere in the Arab world, the prevailing sentiment is similar.The website NOW Lebanon carried an unsigned editorial Monday asking, “Is this the Palestinian role in...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has just released a statement on the Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations, blasting President Obama's policies toward Israel for the situation. “What we are watching unfold at the United Nations is an unmitigated diplomatic disaster," Romney said in a statement. "It is the culmination of President Obama’s repeated efforts over three years to throw Israel under the bus and undermine its negotiating position. That policy must stop now."

    September Barbeque of Jews By Ari Bussel One thing I must surrender: The Palestinians are determined. Did anyone notice that they have been relatively quiet recently although September is already upon us? There were several pronouncements by the PA they would never recognize Israel as a Jewish state, but really not much more. So what is in store for Israel later this month? Israel has been relatively distracted by the “social revolt” that is now subsiding. The summer is over, school is back in session and life has to return to its normal course. The days of summer happenings at...

    Spitting in God’s Face by Norma Zager "And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them…” Exodus 32:9-10 God has not abandoned Israel; Israel has abandoned God. Just as the generation of the Golden Calf was denied access into the Promised Land, today also turning one’s back on God will have tragic repercussions for the Jewish people. Honoring God is not a religious issue. It is an obligation of every human being,...
