  • US puts Palestinians on notice: DC office may be shuttered

    The Trump administration put the Palestinians on notice Friday that it will shutter their office in Washington unless they’ve entered serious peace talks with Israel, U.S. officials said, potentially giving President Donald Trump more leverage as he seeks an elusive Mideast peace deal. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has determined that the Palestinians ran afoul of an obscure provision in a U.S. law that says the Palestine Liberation Organization’s mission must close if the Palestinians try to get the International Criminal Court to prosecute Israelis for crimes against Palestinians. A State Department official said that in September, Palestinian President Mahmoud...

    Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that the Israeli government does not want peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA), Channel 10 News reported on Tuesday. Kerry made the comments in a recent conference in Dubai, attended by Joint List chairman MK Ayman Odeh as well as by opposition leader MK Yitzhak Herzog (Joint List) who attended via video conference. Channel 10 News obtained recordings of Kerry’s speech from the closed conference. “King Abdullah of Jordan accepted the idea of having Israeli troops at an airport in Jordan. We’d even have predeployment of weapons in the West Bank in...
  • UN Launches $65M Pogrom to Hunt Down Israelis & Smear Israel as Criminal State OCTOBER 31, 2017

    The United Nations has made a deal with the Palestinians to fund a $65 million legal pogrom directed at Israel. The party on the Palestinian side was referred to as the "Government of the State of Palestine." More specifically, the "United Nations System in the occupied Palestinian territory" plans to pay eight UN bodies $64,838,510 between the years of 2018 and 2022 to hunt down individual Israelis and to smear Israel as a criminal state. The eight UN bodies or agencies to receive the funds are: Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights UNICEF (the children's fund) The...

    United Nations giving $1.3 billion across 16 different agencies to fund Palestinian lawfare campaigns against Israel The United Nations is at it again, finding any means within its power to hurt Israel. For example, the UN is planning to allocate many millions of dollars of UN funding, meant to assist the Palestinian Authority in development work, to be used instead to help the Palestinians pursue legal action against Israel in international forums. A document entitled the “United Nations Development Framework State of Palestine 2018-2022” states that such assistance is to include training and technical advice to enable the Palestinians to...
  • Canadian man found not guilty of raping wife [Gaza “Palestinian”—Sharia via “mens rea”]

    A Canadian man was found not guilty of rape because he believed he could have sex with his wife whenever he wanted. Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Smith ruled the prosecution failed to prove the accused man knew his behavior was criminal. The judge did not dispute that non-consensual sex had taken place multiple times, the Ottawa Citizen reported. The man, from Gaza, was part of an arranged marriage with his wife, a Palestinian who grew up in Kuwait. “Marriage is not a shield for sexual assault,” Judge Smith wrote in his decision, according to the newspaper. “However, the issue...

    A senior Hamas leader denounced demands by the Trump administration that the terror group be disarmed, and that its leadership must recognize the State of Israel following the reconciliation agreement between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. Last week, Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organization-led Palestinian Authority inked a “final” reconciliation agreement, forming a united government for the first time in a decade. Following the signing of the agreement, Israel announced it would not negotiate with the Hamas-PLO unity government. On Wednesday, President Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, demanded that in light of Hamas’ new position in...

    News coverage of Israel is distorted both by the lopsided amount of attention it gets from world media and from a “herd mentality” that embraces and promotes a narrow, simplistic view of “what the story is,” according to an author and former Associated Press reporter in Israel. Israel accounts for 0.01 percent of the world’s territory and has roughly the population of New York City, but when Matti Friedman joined the AP in 2006, he recalled in Jerusalem this week, the wire service had 40 full-time staff in the country. That was more than the number of AP staff covering...

    Yahya Sinwar says 'no one in the universe can disarm us,' likens belief that terror group will relinquish weapons to 'Satan dreaming of heaven' The Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip on Thursday dismissed US and Israeli demands that it lay down its arms and recognize the Jewish state, saying the terror organization is instead debating “when to wipe out Israel.” The remarks came during a closed roundtable discussion between Yahya Sinwar and Gazan youth about the ongoing reconciliation negotiations with rival Palestinian faction Fatah, to which some media outlets were invited to attend. “Over is the time Hamas spent...

    Speaking at The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in Dallas last week, Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (Joint Arab List) openly admitted that Jews do not have a right to self-determination, and that Israel should not exist as a Jewish state. “It’s an equality which challenges the definition of Israel as a Jewish state,” Zoabi said. “We use this democracy — of course, there is a question of why you…give legitimacy to Israel when you are within the Knesset. This is true. So remember, I am telling you now that now we have the ability to use these tools, the democratic...

    Such a referendum would send a clear signal to President Trump that there could indeed be some possible light at the end of the Gazan terrorist-tunnels There is little hope that reconciliation talks between Hamas and Fatah will end a decade of bitter internecine feuding which has seen a parallel entrenchment of territorial divisions between them in Gaza and the West Bank. Gazan and West Bank Arab populations will continue to be the victims of this ongoing power play as both groups remain bitterly opposed to recognising Israel as the Jewish National Home.

    The presence at the European Parliament this week of a Palestinian who hijacked planes in Europe last century — and whose organization is on the E.U.’s terrorist list — continues to make waves, with some lawmakers and others calling for an investigation. Leila Khaled, a leading figure in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was a guest speaker at an event at the parliament complex in Brussels on Tuesday night. In 1969 and 1970, Khaled hijacked two aircraft — one Israeli, one American — in European airspace. She was arrested during the second attempt, but was soon...

    The Trump administration declared its firm support Thursday for a bill that would suspend U.S. financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority until it ends what critics have described as a long-standing practice of rewarding Palestinians who kill Americans and Israelis. The State Department announcement comes nearly six weeks after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee backed the measure. The legislation, which is named after an American who was stabbed to death in Israel by a Palestinian, reflects bipartisan outrage over what lawmakers have termed a “pay to slay” program endorsed by the Palestinian Authority. “The Trump administration strongly supports the Taylor...

    The Palestinian Authority blasted US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, calling recent comments made by the Ambassador regarding Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria “unacceptable”. Last week, Ambassador Friedman spoke with the Jerusalem Post, which published the interview on Friday. During the course of the interview, Friedman referred to PA claims that Israel is “occupying” Judea and Samaria, calling Israel’s presence in the area the “alleged occupation”. In response, Saeb Erekat, secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization penned a letter to diplomats lambasting Ambassador Friedman for his comments, calling them unacceptable, AFP reported Wednesday. …

    Seven months into the Trump administration, Palestinian leaders say they still don’t know what President Trump’s position is on their conflict with Israel, frustrated that he refuses to commit publicly to the so-called “two-state solution” as the key to resolving it. As a delegation led by White House adviser Jared Kushner arrived in the region for meetings with Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, there was a glimpse of that frustration in the State Department briefing room on Wednesday. “Why are you so loath to say — to commit yourself, to recommit yourself to the two-state solution?” asked Said...

    On February 29, 2016, New York Times reporters Amy Chozick and Patrick Healy provided an insider analysis of the Clinton team's plan to defeat Donald Trump. Citing interviews with "more than two dozen" Clinton insiders, including several who spoke directly to Bill Clinton, the article reported on a series of emergency meetings Clinton supporters convened to respond to Donald Trump's February 20 victory in South Carolina and his February 23 win in Nevada. The article reported that Bill Clinton and others argued against those inclined to underestimate Trump "that Mr. Trump clearly had a keen sense of the electorate’s mood...

    While many Israelis may not love the Palestinians, a vast majority want peace with them and wish them a good life; the same cannot be said coming in the other direction Actctive attempts by US administrations to broker a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians have been going on since the days of Richard Nixon. With over 40 years of failure, one might reason that there would be some soul-searching in Washington before trying again to make what President Donald Trump has described as the “ultimate deal.” Unfortunately, such introspection is rare and as such true progress remains elusive....

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas canceled scheduled security coordination meetings between Israeli and Palestinian officials. The meetings were cancelled on Sunday, two days after Abbas announced that PA leaders have frozen all contact with Israel over newly installed security measures at the Temple Mount. It is the first time that security cooperation has been halted since Abbas was elected leader of the PA nearly a decade ago, according to Israeli reports. Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told Ynet that Israel can manage without Palestinian security cooperation, but that the Palestinians will suffer without it. “We’ve managed for many years without...

    The IDF said Thursday five battalions have been put on standby in the West Bank in light of the high tensions on the Temple Mount. After three Israeli Arabs came out of the Temple Mount complex armed and opened fire at an Israeli police force, killing two of the officers, Israel added metal detectors and security cameras at the entrance gates to the holy site to prevent the smuggling of more weapons inside. The added security was met with strong objection from the Palestinians, Israeli Arabs, other Arab nations and the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf. They claim the move constitutes a...
