    TEL AVIV – In recent weeks, representatives for the Obama administration have held meetings with a senior politician here in which the U.S. delegates brought up the possibility of replacing Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister, according to an informed Jerusalem diplomatic source. The meetings were held with Israel’s popular finance minister, Yair Lapid, founder and leader of the Yesh Atid Party, which became the second-largest party in the Knesset winning 19 seats in the last election. The diplomatic source said the Obama administration identified Lapid as a moderate who could be helpful in pushing the Israeli government into accepting the...

    A ministerial committee headed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday approved the list of 26 Palestinian prisoners to be released in the second stage of Israel's commitment to the Palestinian Authority to resume peace negotiations. The names of the pre-Oslo prisoners were expected to be published later Sunday night. Earlier Sunday, a bill sponsored by the Bayit Yehudi Party to ban future Palestinian prisoners release failed to pass the Legislative Ministerial Committee by an eight-to-five vote, as a separate panel prepares this evening to approve such a release.

    Jibril Rajoub, a senior Palestinian Authority official who is frequently characterized as a “moderate” in both the Western and Israeli media, said on Lebanese television that if the Palestinians had a nuclear weapon they would have nuked Israel “this morning.” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) discovered and translated to English the interview Rajoub gave to Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV on April 30. Rajoub also posted the video clip to his own Facebook page, according to PMW. When the interviewer referred to peace talks with Israel as “the negotiations game,” Rajoub suggested that the Palestinian Authority [PA] engages in negotiations because it...

    Reprinted from Palestinian Media Watch. Two days before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel and the PA, the official PA daily chose to print anti-American hate speech along with pro-Hitler comments in an op-ed: “Our history is replete with lies… [including] the lie about Al-Qaeda and the September 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons.” The op-ed further implies that Hitler was greater than both Churchill and Roosevelt, who were “alcoholics”: “Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once...

    While we often post in response to Israel related news stories and commentary at the Guardian and ‘Comment is Free’ which are biased, misleading or inaccurate in some manner, often a Guardian ‘photo of the day’ can similarly serve as a vehicle for propaganda due to the emotive strength of the image, along with a paucity of relevant context. The following was included in the Feb. 11th edition of the Guardian’s ‘Best Photos of the Day’. Here’s the Guardian caption: Palestinian women hold pictures of prisoners jailed in Israel during a rally calling for their release in the West Bank...

    Hamas is about to establish its own “Defense Ministry” in the Gaza Strip as part of lessons drawn from Operation Pillar of Defense, Hamas Interior Minister Fathi Hammad announced on Wednesday. Hammad, who is in charge of the Hamas security apparatus in the Gaza Strip, made the announcement during a ceremony to honor policemen and security officers for their role during last month’s IDF air offensive. Hammad did not say when the new ministry would be established. This would be the first time that the Palestinians set up a Defense Ministry. The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank does not...

    Gosh I love John Bolton. He really knows how to put the UN in its place: Well if I were Israel and/or the United States, I wouldn’t pay any attention to a General Assembly resolution. Look, the General Assembly could vote this week to make Disney Land a state and it wouldn’t have any more impact outside of the General Assembly hall for Palestine or Disney Land. When Greta asserted that the Obama administration is doing everything it can to fight Palestinian statehood, Bolton quickly challenged that premise by suggesting that they could threaten to defund the UN over a...

    JLEBOVICH@MIAMIHERALD.COM An Ohio man who became loud and disruptive aboard a flight from Miami to Detroit -- at one point shouting ``kill all the Jews'' -- was removed from the airplane and taken into custody by Miami-Dade police. The man arrested was identified as Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43. Police say he caused a ``disturbance,'' forcing the pilot to decide to return to the jet-bridge. When Asad was taken off the plane to be interviewed by police, he threatened officers, made racial comments and charged an officer, authorities said. Asad was charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and...

The New York Sun has reported that the former Executive Director of the Holocaust Memorial Council once received a note from Carter complaining that there were "too many Jews" on the Holocaust Memorial Council:(Former Director Monroe) Freedman also said that Carter's support for the Holocaust Memorial Council was "principally a political gimmick" based on getting political support from Jews.

If we draw the proper lessons from what we have seen we will go far toward winning the war.

According to a deal, which will take effect within 48 hours, Israel will release Hamas ministers and lawmakers and reopen crossing points into Gaza, the report said. Israel will also stop assassinations and return tax revenues owned to the Palestinian National Authority, it added. In addition to the release of Corporal Gilad Shalit, who was seized by Palestinian militant groups on June 25, the Palestinians are...

Roub, 40, is a leader of the militant Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades in this turbulent corner of the West Bank and has spent the past five years leading his ragtag band of gunmen in frequent clashes with the Israeli military. Roub's deeds include hauling a Palestinian suspected of collaborating with Israel and of molesting his own daughters into a town square, where the man was shot to death. Now Roub...

Egypt, meanwhile, deployed the first of 750 soldiers assigned to police the volatile Gaza border to prevent arms smuggling and illicit crossings after the Israelis end their 38-year occupation. "An hour after we leave the field, there will be a strategic change ... in the nature of our response to even an attempt at terror," Maj. Gen.

    The Palestinian Authority press has been using political cartoons as a vehicle for expressing its public's intense opposition to American policies, especially the war in Iraq. Although U.S. President George W. Bush has been cozying up to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority press has been overtly anti-American, especially in regard to the war in Iraq. While verbal attacks, primarily calls to kill Americans, are repeatedly broadcast in the Palestinian media, some of the most rabid anti-American incitement appears in the form of political cartoons published in PA daily newspapers.

Worst-case scenarios of disengagement, security chiefs warn, include assassination of the prime minister or other leaders and violent civil unrest . The more we positively discount such possibilities, the more likely it is that we are in denial.

The “senior US officials” said they may be open to contacts with some Hamas political “affiliates” and left open the possibility of dealing with...

    A resurgence of anarchy in the PA spilled over into Jerusalem today as Fatah gang members forcibly seized the offices of the Moslem religious trust (waqf) in the El Azariyeh neighborhood. The waqf office was raided by some 70 gang members who are holding several waqf officials hostage. The Fatah raid was prompted by a decision by the waqf to transfer administration of charitable organizations under its control to local authorities. The decision went against local Fatah leaders who claim that some of the charitable organizations are collaborating with Israel. One of the hostages is Salah Zukheika, an official of...

    Tony Blair won the backing of Israel and the Palestinians yesterday for a high-powered international conference in London to help revive Middle East peace talks and prepare Palestinians for statehood. The gathering, expected in early March, will be chaired by the Prime Minister and will bring together about 20 foreign ministers, led by Condoleezza Rice, recently appointed as President George W Bush's new secretary of state. The American support is in sharp contrast with the last British-inspired Palestinian reform conference in London in January 2003, two months before the war in Iraq.

The diocesan convention approved a resolution condemning the security wall that Israel is building, ostensibly as protection against terrorists coming from the occupied territories. Debate was cut off before a priest, waiting at the microphone, could offer an amendment to condemn indiscriminate killing by Palestinian terrorists as well as Israeli soldiers. Instead of acting...

Targeted killings of terror masters are out. Military operations in places like Rafah or Jenin are out; they spark media frenzies of alleged massacres and wanton killing of civilians. Demolitions of the homes of suicide bombers—the only thing that can deter people who seek their own death—are out. Even curfews, roadblocks—out; they’re seen as oppressing the Palestinian people.

Media outlets regularly charge the IDF with brute over-reaction to Palestinian stone-throwers, described as mere "protestors" who pose no serious danger. The latest episode took place on Saturday (Jan. 3), when three Palestinians were killed during a clash in Nablus. Among them was 15-year-old Amjad al-Masri, who had engaged soldiers from a rooftop. Reuters reported a discrepancy between Palestinian witnesses who claimed al-Masri was merely "throwing stones" from above, and the IDF spokesman, who said he was "dropping large bricks on soldiers." ...

    The Arabists Among Us By James M. Hutchens ________________________________________ In 1995, a New York Times “Notable Book of the Year,” was Robert D. Kaplan’s The Arabists. It is a fascinating and insightful account of how the State Department of the United States government became, and remains, pro-Arab. Basically, it is a story of how, over the last two centuries, the children of missionaries to the Muslim world of the Middle East, have been pipelined through Ivy League schools into the State Department. Once embedded there, in the Office of Near Eastern Affairs, their love for the Arab peoples and culture...

    German officials arrested on Thursday charged three Jordanians suspected of belonging to a Palestinian extremist group prosecutors said was plotting attacks on Jewish and Israeli interests. Federal prosecutors in Karlsruhe said a fourth man had been charged with providing support to the al-Tawhid group. The four men will be tried in a Düsseldorf court, where the trial of another al-Tawhid member is underway. Together all five men have been accused of planning an attack near a Jewish institution in Berlin. They could face 10 year prison sentences if convicted.

    Christians For Israel, USA ^ | 2003 | Dr. James M. Hutchens
    As we proceed down the so-called "Road Map to Peace," there are some issues Christians need to deal with. One of the most prominent of those issues is the Palestinians. Those Christians who support the State of Israel as the national, ancestral, covenantal homeland of the Jewish people, are often charged with being calloused and totally insensitive to the needs and aspirations of the Palestinians. Is that a fair charge? First, let us clarify who the "Palestinians" really are. The notion of a distinct "Palestinian people" with a language, culture and religion of its own, is a creation of Yasser...

    For all those of you who think that only war poses risks for innocent people, I would like to tell you of our experiences here in Israel. Nine years ago, we in Israel, encouraged by our own Peace-Nowers, signed a Peace Accord with a known terrorist, pulled our army out, handed him land and then sat around singing songs and painting doves because we were tired of fighting. And this is what happened: he brought in thousands of weapons, taught children to kill and be killed, set up bomb factories, and encouraged religious leaders to preach suicide bombing as a...

            Dear Valued FRiends and Peers,         Professor Daniel Pipes, Director of the Middle East Forum and publisher of Militant Islam Comes To America, has been nominated by President George Bush to the United States Institute of Peace. Most people here know his credentials. This nomination, when brought up in the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, "failed to reach a quorum," under pressure by Islamic activist groups like The American Muslim Council (AMC), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Democrat collusion.         These extremist Islamic interest...

    Has President Bush Staked His Presidency on Abu Mazen? President Bush telephoned Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) on Friday, July 4th to thank him for his strong leadership, said the president's spokesman, Ari Fleisher. You've got to be kidding me! On the 4th of July, you call a terrorist and thank him for his leadership? Was it Fleisher who said that, or Baghdad Bob? This was the same day that President Bush said at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, "We will not stand by and wait for another attack, or trust the restraint and good intentions of evil men." But is that...

    Four American soldiers were killed by a suicide bomber driving a car bomb in Iraq yesterday - and the Iraqi Vice President has warned that that's "only the beginning." The attacker, dressed in civilian clothes, drove a taxi to a checkpoint near the city of Najaf, waved to the soldiers, and then detonated his bomb as they approached. The Iraqi government awarded the suicide murderer, a soldier in the Iraqi army, two posthumous medals for his act, as well as the equivalent of $35,000 for the terrorist's family. The Palestinian Authority, world leader in producing such suicide murderers, showed its...

    In the Palestinian areas, about 700 Palestinians, most of them schoolchildren, waved Iraqi flags and posters of Saddam and burned two U.S. flags after the attack. The Palestinians in the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun shouted "Death to America, death to Bush," and "We will sacrifice our soul and our blood for Saddam."

    Now that we know that the Chronicle has won the " Collaborator of the Year Winner ” award. Although the competition was fierce it took the prize hands down. Now its trotting the track in its victory lap. The evidence is the papers continual bashing of not only every move Attorney General Ashcroft makes in fighting terrorism, but it heaps criticism on Israel too. We all know that the Chron is an accomplice to terrorism in that it aids and abets any and every terrorist it can find, including suspected ones. Now it comes to shed tears for a detained...

    The left likes to think of itself as proponents of free speech. But nothing can be further from the truth. They revel in censorship. They foster "free speech codes" that limit what can be said or not said on college campuses following a strict and politically correct agenda. They limit identifying the race of criminal suspects in newspapers, despite the fact that the race of alleged perpetrator is among the most efficient identifying characteristic. They even deny that they are even on the left or progressive (code for socialist) or liberal. They're all just "moderates". If you don't believe me...

There is no cycle of violence, they argue, only acts of vicious terrorism. However, gentle reader, I have a terrible secret to reveal: the hasbarah-niks have it wrong. There is indeed a cycle, a cycle that repeats...
