According to the deal reached in Moscow, the Palestinian factions - including the Islamic Jihad - will join the PLO institutions and form a new Palestinian National Council. The new council will select the PLO Executive Committee, the top political and diplomatic Palestinian body.

    Using photos of young women and Hebrew slang, the Palestinian militant group Hamas chatted up dozens of Israeli soldiers online, gaining control of their phone cameras and microphones, the military said on Wednesday. An officer, who briefed reporters on the alleged scam, said the Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip uncovered no major military secrets in the intelligence-gathering operation. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum declined to comment. Mainly using Facebook, Hamas used fake online identities and photos of young women, apparently found on the Internet, to lure soldiers in, the officer said. "Just a second, I'll send you a photo,...

    Nigeria's secret service said on Tuesday it had intercepted 13 containers of weapons from Iran in what Israeli defense sources believe may be part of a new smuggling route from Iran to Hamas in Gaza. Rocket launchers, grenades and other explosives camouflaged as building material were seized in the Nigerian port of Lagos after being unloaded from an Iranian ship. Nigerian media reports said the ship, which came from Iran, docked in Lagos port for a few hours only, unloaded 13 containers and sailed on.

    A video of Muslims and Jewish people dancing together at a Hanukkah celebration in Bahrain has been condemned by Hamas as a “humiliating and disgraceful spectacle.”For the second year in a row, the Arab state hosted a candle-lighting ceremony marking the start of Hanukkah, Saturday. The event, hosted by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, was attended by a selection of Bahrain’s tiny Jewish population as well as Jews from France. Later, a video was posted to YouTube showing Jewish men in kippahs and Muslim men wearing keffiyehs dancing together.That combination led to a furious reaction from the Palestinian Islamic...

It opens with a young boy - representing the organization in its early years - throwing stones at an Israeli soldier in the 1987 Intifada. As he progresses through various landmarks, including the 2000 Al-Aqsa Intifada and the 2005 Al-Quds Intifada, he turns into a fully grown militant, utilizing more sophisticated weapons, including rifles, missiles, and tunnels. The video culminates with a signpost reading "The Liberation," as the militant takes the final stretch toward the Al-Aqsa Mosque

    Two-thirds of Palestinians believe a two-state solution to their conflict with Israel is no longer possible, a poll said Tuesday. The share of those who lost faith in such a deal rose from 56 percent in September to 65 percent now, probably due to an acceleration of settlement activity, said the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey research. Most in the international community still back the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, even though a deal appears to be increasingly complicated, in part because of the continued growth of settlements. Gaps between Israeli and Palestinian leaders remain wide, preventing...

    NEW YORK - The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenged in federal court Thursday the US government's refusal to grant a travel visa to Swiss-based Muslim academic Tariq Ramadan. Ramadan, one of the world's leading scholars on Islam, was forced to turn down a tenured position at the University of Notre Dame when the US government revoked his visa in late 2004 on the basis of the so-called "ideological exclusion" provision of the Patriot Act. Washington later dropped its claim, unable to prove that Ramadan had endorsed terrorism. But it banned the academic in September 2006 on grounds he made...

No parliamentary elections have been held since the 2006 - which Hamas won—but which the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) refused to accept. A bitter...

    16 years after the failed Camp David summit, the fiction of the two-state solution is about to be shattered once and for all. The only relevant question today, is what does Israel intend to do next? Like it or not, the day is fast approaching when the Palestinian Authority we have known for the past 22 years will cease to exist. PA leader Mahmoud Abbas's US-trained Palestinian security forces have lost control over the Palestinians cities in Judea and Samaria. His EU- and US-funded bureaucracies are about to lose control over the local governments to Hamas. And his Fatah militias...

    The UN's Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) sent a letter to Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, requesting the release of Waheed Abdallah Borsh, a UNDP worker arrested in July for illegally diverting millions of dollars of humanitarian relief to Hamas. In the letter, the UN specifically referred to the Israeli city of Beersheba by an Arabic name. The letter sent earlier this week cited Article 105 of the UN Charter, which Israel adopted in 1949, stating that Borsh, as a UN employee, "enjoys immunity from personal arrest or detention, as well as immunity from legal process in respect...

    Actress, comedian, and reality TV star Roseanne Barr blasted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week, warning that a Clinton victory would “be the absolute death of Israel”. […] On Wednesday Barr lambasted Mrs. Clinton, saying the former Secretary of State would “sell nukes to Hamas next if [the] price is right”. […] “She listens [to] Sid, Paul, and Max Blumenthal!” a reference to long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and his sons, Max and Paul. Max Blumenthal, a self-described anti-Zionist and supporter of the BDS movement, has earned the praise of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke for...

    Hours after his security officers lynched a detainee, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urged Palestinian businessmen living abroad to support the Palestinian economy by investing in the Palestinian territories. The Palestinian Authority (PA), he asserted, was "working to provide security and safety to encourage investment." According to Abbas, "The Palestinian territories are living in a state of security stability, which we are working to provide for residents and investors alike by enforcing the rule of law and enhancing transparency and accountability." *snip* The Palestinian Authority is now paying the price for harboring, funding and inciting gang members and militiamen who...

    Oscar Biscet, a well-known human rights activist from Havana, spent over a decade in Cuban prisons for a host of alleged crimes: dishonoring national symbols, public disorder, inciting delinquent behavior, and, ultimately, crimes against state security. “They put me in a very tiny cell full of tuberculosis patients,” he recalled last week. In another case of the perverse treatment he received for publicly opposing the regime, the prison guards threw him into a small cell with mental patients who had not been given their medication. “They are more subtle than Hitler and Stalin, but they have the same mechanisms,” he...

    With an indictment unsealed last week, Israeli investigators have sounded an alarm over the illicit use of global aid money to fund Palestinian terrorism. Prosecutors in the city of Beersheba allege that Mohammed El-Halabi, Gaza Strip director of the California-based charity World Vision, transferred tens of millions of dollars to Hamas to buy weapons and build underground attack tunnels. Although World Vision denies fault, the governments of Australia and Germany have halted donations pending investigations. This revelation should spur a broader reassessment of American aid to the Palestinian government. For two decades the Palestinian government has used U.S. and other...

    Eighty thousand dollars of aid donated to World Vision by the United Kingdom, which was intended to help the civilians of Gaza, build badly-needed infrastructure, and provide food and medical care to those in need, was instead invested in building a Hamas military base and pocketed by the terrorists who constructed it. "In this compound we have identified surveillance and observation capabilities facing north, towards Israel." IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said. "I can also tell you that in June 2015 we targeted components within the compound following a rocket attack against Israel." The active Hamas military base, codenamed...

Muhammad Halabi, a Hamas member and manager of operations for World Vision in Gaza, was indicted on a number of security-related charges in a Beersheba court on Thursday for his role in the alleged scheme.

    Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has suspended funding of World Vision programs in Palestine, after the head of the charity in Gaza was charged by Israel for allegedly providing funds to Hamas. The World Vision Australia chief executive, Tim Costello, has welcomed the suspension but said the charity was “mystified” by the charges given that independent audits had found its programs in the Palestine were clean. Israel’s domestic security agency Shin Bet alleges that Mohammad El Halabi, the director of the Gaza branch of World Vision, used his position to divert tens of millions of dollars of humanitarian...
