    The Associated Press UNITED NATIONS — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told the U.N. General Assembly Thursday that the planned national unity government will recognize Israel. The Hamas-led Palestinian government that won elections in January has refused to recognize Israel, end violence, and honor past agreements between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, which Abbas heads. Abbas told the assembly's annual ministerial meeting that he has recently sought to establish a government of national unity "that is consistent with international and Arab legitimacy and that responds to the demands of the key parties promoting Mideast peace _ recognition, ending violence and...

    ‘No explosive device on safe that killed Palestine envoy’  Published — Friday 3 January 2014 Last update 3 January 2014 1:06 am PRAGUE: A safe that exploded at the Palestinian residence in Prague, killing the ambassador, was used almost daily for storing cash, and embassy staff were not aware of any explosive safety device in it, the embassy spokesman said on Thursday. Czech police on Wednesday ruled out what they called a “terrorist attack” and said the likely cause was that a safety device that was part of the safe blew up and fatally wounded Ambassador Jamal Al-Jamal.

    French experts have ruled out a theory that Yasser Arafat was killed by poisoning, according to a source close to the investigation into the Palestinian leader’s 2004 death. “The report rules out the poisoning theory and goes in the sense of a natural death,” the source told AFP. The French experts’ findings differ significantly from those of Swiss scientists, who said last month that their research offered some support for the suggestion Arafat was killed by polonium poisoning. …

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) - The remains of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will be exhumed Tuesday as part of a renewed investigation into his death, a Palestinian investigator said Saturday. Arafat died in November 2004 in a French military hospital, a month after suddenly falling ill. Palestinian officials claim he was poisoned by Israel, but have not presented evidence. Israel has denied such allegations. Earlier this year, the detection of a lethal radioactive substance in biological traces on Arafat's clothing sparked a new investigation. Tests were inconclusive, and experts said they need to check his remains to learn more....

    Inside the synagogue, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who mindlessly called Israeli settlements obstacles to peace, was going to speak. Outside B’nai Torah, in Boca Raton, Florida, members were anxiously pointing out Alan Bergstein, writer and pro-Israel activist, to the reinforced law enforcement detail. Bergstein and other anti-Obama Jews were denied entrance and told by law enforcement to leave the property. How far and how shamelessly some in the Jewish community have sunk in their embrace of Obama is ineradicably seen in this action. A Jew being denied entrance to a synagogue brings to mind Germany in...

    Born in Cairo (Egypt) in 1929 Yasser Arafat – the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (Haj Amin Al-Husseini, Hitler’s bosom buddy) niece’s little boy – soon became known as a “moderate” to the peace loving West. He was regarded as someone who was generally interested in ending the fighting with Israel while ensuring the rights of Palestinians. In spite of his murderous deeds against the Zionist Entity and the West (airplane hijackings, Achille Lauro, Munich, murdering American diplomats, etc.) in spite of wreaking havoc in Jordan and Lebanon (both countries had to throw him out!) somehow he was regarded as the...

    Could this be the most unvarnished insult to someone's intelligence in the recent annals of major network television? Here was Zbigniew Brzezinski, speaking to Joe Scarborough on today's "Morning Joe." [H/t reader Melody.] "You know, you have such a stunningly superficial knowledge of what went on that it's almost embarrassing to listen to you." It was Scarborough's exposition of the widely accepted view—shared by Bill Clinton himself—that Yasser Arafat was to blame for the failure of the 2000 Camp David summit, that prompted Brzezinski's remarkable display of disdain.

    Barack Obama's real thinking about Israel and the Middle East continues to be an enigma. The words he chose in an address to AIPAC create a different impression than the composition of his foreign policy advisory team. Several advisors have evidenced a history of suspicion and worse toward Israel. One of his advisors in particular, Robert Malley, clearly warrants attention, as does the reasoning that led him to being chosen by Barack Obama. A little family history may be in order to understand the genesis of Robert Malley's views. Normally, one should be reluctant in exploring a person's family background...

    In the fall of 2002 Iraq crossed an unacceptable threshold, supplying operational weapons of mass destruction (WMD) to bin Laden's terrorists. These developments were confirmed to the Western intelligence services after several terrorists -- graduates of WMD training programs -- were captured in Israel, Chechnya, Turkey, and France, along with documents related to their activities. On the basis of pure threat analysis, the United States should have gone to war against Iraq, as well as its partners Syria and Iran, in fall 2002. By then there was already unambiguous evidence indicating the urgency of defusing the imminent danger posed by...

    When asked by the media for his thoughts on the Hamas triumph in the Palestinian parliamentary elections, former President Jimmy Carter replied that while they have a terrorist past, at least they're not corrupt. One of the complaints by many in the Middle East was the corruption within the Palestinian Authority and Yasser Arafat's Fatah Party. Arafat himself squirreled away millions of dollars from aid packages that were intended to help the Palestinian people. However, Carter's comment appears to dismiss the years of death and destruction perpetrated by Hamas on the Jewish State. One of the first statements made by...

It is now a certainty that Mr. "Schindler's List" will expend the capital he earned on that film to now HUMANIZE(!) Palestinian terrorists who murdered the Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich in 1972.

Worse is the revelation that playwright Tony Kushner (a self-avowed socialist and gay activist) is praised...

    It might seem odd to compare and contrast two news stories from last week – the resignation announcement of Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Paris death of Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafat. But an examination of the two demonstrates the degree to which the "news" media’s compass of objectivity is so terribly misaligned. To read the coverage, you’d think Ashcroft was the tyrant, and Arafat the liberator. On November 10, the New York Times front page put the two stories side by side in the top left-hand corner. Reporter Elisabeth Bumiller told readers the "polarizing" Ashcroft was resigning after a...

    Ironically, Arafat was expelled from every Arab nation where he set up terrorism shop. The Hashemite King of Jordan expelled Arafat forcibly in what is known as bloody ''Black September'' because Arafat attempted to overthrow him and become ruler over the only legal Arab ''Palestine" ever. More Arab Jordanians/Palestinians were killed by the king of Jordan during this battle than by the entire time period the squatters stayed in Israel. Lebanon got rid of him because of his crimes against its Christian population whose people were murdered and women were raped in another attempted coup and rise to power. Libya...

    The deepest and darkest joke I’ve heard in a long time goes like this. Osama bin Laden prays to the spirit of Yasser Arafat who then appears before him. “Yasser, please help me understand something,” requests Osama. “We’re both fellow terrorists. You’ve even killed more infidels than I have. Yet you get the Nobel Peace Prize, your funeral is attended by heads of state from around the world, and European newspapers compare you to Moses – while I am the world’s most hunted and hated man, reduced to hiding in inaccessible mountain caves. How did you do it? What is...

    When news of Yasser Arafat's death broke, I smiled and applauded. Then I went to bed. While most opinion columnists were rushing to their computers and wedging the event as best they could between their agendas and their general thoughts on the Jewish people, there seemed no point in repeating the things all reasonable people have been saying for the last four decades. (Or, for that matter, the New York Post, which put it brilliantly: "Arafat Dead / And He Won't Be Missed.") Mankind is better because the evil old bastard finally died, but stretching the point out to 750...

    For a variety of reasons, there is a lot of enthusiasm and optimism surrounding the death of Palestinian Authority (''PA'') leader, Yasser Arafat, and how his demise might advance an expeditious resolution of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. To be sure, I would love to jump on this bandwagon, and offer another in a litany of cheery op-eds issued internationally since the passing of the former leader of the PLO. However, though I agree that Arafat has been a huge stumbling block to peace in this region that has now been removed, it is unquestionably much more than just him that has...

    PARIS, 15 November 2004 — With the date of the Palestinian presidential election fixed for Jan. 9, one might expect it to be the hottest topic in the West Bank and Gaza. It is not. What most Palestinians are talking about with most interest is the mystery that still surrounds the cause of Yasser Arafat’s death. “Arafat is a man of history’” says his personal physician Dr. Ashraf Al-Kurdi. “It is incomprehensible that such a leader could be pronounced dead, honored in a funeral, and buried without announcing what he died of.” The refusal of the French authorities to reveal...

    On November the 11th, 2004, Judith Miller of the New York Times wrote an article about the death of the infamous terrorist leader Yasser Arafat titled "Yasir Arafat, Father and Leader of Palestinian Nationalism, Dies at 75". Her inane, eight-page obituary began with the following words: "Yasir Arafat, who died this morning in Paris, was the wily and enigmatic father of Palestinian nationalism who for almost 40 years symbolized his people's longing for a distinct political identity and independent state. He was 75." She went on to opine that "No other individual so embodied the Palestinians' plight: their dispersal, their...

    The pope's disgraceful tribute to Arafat Posted: November 13, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern From the way world leaders reacted to the death of Yasser Arafat, you could be forgiven if you had mistakenly believed that Mother Theresa had died. Kofi Annan, a man whose diplomatic career has been dedicated to friendship with tyrants and contempt for their victims, declared himself "deeply moved" by Arafat's death and ordered the U.N. flag flown at half-mast. This is not all that surprising given that Annan is the same man who overruled U.N. Gen. Romeo Dallaire in April 1994 and ordered him not to...

    The first of the two parts of arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat's funeral has ended in Cairo, and the second part - the actual burial - began at 2 PM in Ramallah. The PA security services had difficulty enforcing order. The unruly and volatile funeral continues as this report goes to press. Some 40 political leaders from around the world, including U.S. Assistant Secretary of State William Burns, attended the Cairo ceremony. It lasted only a few minutes, and no speeches were delivered. Several non-Arab nations, such as Brazil and South Africa, joined Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Malaysia and others in sending their...

    Yasser Arafat would be harshly judged by history and did not do enough to curb terrorism, the Prime Minister said yesterday. John Howard made his damning assessment just hours before Arafat's death was announced, showing how much his view has changed since he embraced Arafat as "a man who is searching for peace" during a visit to the Gaza Strip. The April 2000 visit came amid optimism that Israel and Palestine were on the verge of peace, but the deal foundered and Howard blames Arafat, who, he says, would have got "90 per cent" of his demands. "History will judge...

    JERUSALEM, 12 November 2004 — A group of Palestinian lawyers called on the new Palestinian leadership yesterday to order a full investigation into alleged misuse of Palestinian Authority funds under the late Yasser Arafat. No one knows how much money may be involved but various sources put Arafat’s personal fortune at between $4.5 billion and $6.5 billion. Arafat’s nephew Nasser Al-Qudwa, however, has said that the late leader’s fortune did not exceed $250 million, mostly invested in real estate and two mobile phone companies in North Africa. While most Palestinians insist that Arafat did not personally benefit from corruption, all...
