  • China Can Exploit United Nations Double Standards On Palestine

    Double standards in the international community have a horrible way of coming back to bite those indulging in such dangerous games International support for the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) - despite its rejection of the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine and article 80 of the United Nations Charter—could be exploited by China to blunt international action following an unfavourable ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration against China in The Hague. Having boycotted those proceedings - Chinese President Xi Jinping then immediately dismissed the decision—which denied China had any legal basis to claim historic rights to the bulk...

    Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said it plainly at the 14th Annual MAS-ICNA (Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America) Convention in December 2015: “Black Lives Matter is our matter. Black Lives Matter is our campaign.” Khalilah Sabra, another Muslim activist, told the Muslim conference: “Basically, you are the new black people of America….We are the community that staged a revolution across the world. If we could do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?” With the murder of five policemen in Dallas by a sniper during a...

    The Vatican on Friday signed an historic first accord with “Palestine,” two years after officially recognizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a state. The accord, a treaty covering the life and activity of the Church in Judea and Samaria, was the first since the Vatican made the controversial step of recognition in February 2013. It also recognizes the PA as having authority in eastern Jerusalem, the undivided capital of the Jewish state. […] Signing international treaties unilaterally is a breach of the 1993 Oslo Accords which created the PA. […]The agreement appears to ignore the fact that Christians have been...

    Egypt’s foreign minister paid a rare visit to Israel on Sunday, saying that his country remains a “steadfast and unwavering” supporter of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians but warning that conditions for achieving that are deteriorating. Sameh Shoukry’s trip was the first official visit to Israel since 2007 and reflected the strong but low-profile ties that have developed between the two countries in recent years. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry said Shoukry’s visit was aimed at reviving the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. …

    As demonstrators in the United States protest against recent incident in which police officers killed African American men, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has found a way to blame Israel. New York University's chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine shared a post on its Facebook page claiming that "the same forces behind the genocide of black people in America are behind the genocide of Palestinians." Aside from the extreme hyperbole in describing growth from 1.3 million to 12.3 million over the past 70 years as "genocide," the accusations bring to mind anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the...

    Israel should stop building settlements, denying Palestinian development and designating land for exclusive Israeli use that Palestinians seek for a future state, the Middle East peace "Quartet" recommended in a draft of an eagerly awaited report seen by Reuters. The draft report by the Quartet countries sponsoring the stalled Middle East peace process - the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations - said the Israeli policy "is steadily eroding the viability of the two state solution." "This raises legitimate questions about Israel's long term intentions which are compounded by the statements of some Israeli ministers that...

    Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market bills itself as the “heartbeat of Israeli culinary art.” Dozens of small restaurants and shops offer cheese, wine, bread, fish, olives, pasta, burgers – pretty much anything you can imagine and quite a bit that you probably cannot. I had a nice lunch there the other day. Exactly a week later two Palestinian men sat down in a cafĂ©, ordered dessert, pulled handguns from beneath their dark suit jackets and began firing at everyone in sight. Four civilians were murdered and more than a dozen wounded before the killers were stopped – one shot by a security...

  • Palestine, a Land virtually laid waste with little population

      Palestine, a Land virtually laid waste with little population  A review of Palestine, before the era of prosperity began with the late nineteenth-century renewal of Jewish land settlement, shows that periodically Palestine was virtually laid waste, and its population suffered acute decline. An enormous swell of Arab population could only have resulted from immigration and in-migration (from Jordan and the West Bank to the coastal area). It is helpful to see the land that was virtually emptied-and why. Dio Cassius, writing at the time, described the ruin of the land beginning with the destruction of Judah: Of their ...

    The Jewish Press ^ | 8/10/'11 | Jerold S. Auerbach
    If the UN should decide to recognize a "State of Palestine" in the biblical homeland of the Jewish people it would endorse a bizarre irony. Why? Because Palestinian national identity borrows so extensively from Jewish and Zionist sources as to virtually constitute historical plagiarism. "Palestine" emerged as an abbreviation of "Syria Palaestina." The name was imposed by Roman conquerors to obliterate the connection of Jews to their land after the Bar Kochba rebellion collapsed in 135 CE. During four hundred years of Ottoman rule, Arabs considered it to be part of Syria-Palestine, not a separate entity. A remote and neglected...

    Two wars today are being waged against Jewish students on American university campuses. One is substantive, the other is institutional.

As the guarantor of Jewish freedom, Israel is the subject of a systematic, multidimensional assault, carried out everywhere on campuses. On a growing number of campuses in the United States, the only Jews who can safely express their views on Israel are those who champion Israel’s destruction. Those who support...

Badreddine, 55, was one of the highest ranking officials in the group, and assessed by the US government to be responsible for Hezbollah’s military operations in Syria, where it is fighting alongside the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. A Hezbollah statement did not say when, where or how he was killed, though it cited him saying he would return from Syria either victorious or as “a martyr”.

    I don’t know why progressives hate Israel. But it is undeniable that they do. There is a palpable contempt, the anti-Semitism of our day, bigotry dressed up as compassion. They talk about Palestinians, and identify with their cause, and you can almost hear them cheering the suicide vests. Whether from the college classroom or the black pulpit or the progressive stump speech, there is a strident anti-Israeli theme to the prattlings of the American left. And protests to the contrary notwithstanding, it is inseparable from a contempt for the people and religion of Israel. To my ear, in all honesty,...

    It’s hard to tell parody from real life on certain college campuses these days, but I’m pretty sure this article is serious. The article, from the Brown Daily Herald, discusses how Brown students’ emotional and academic well-being is suffering because they are so busy fulfilling their “social justice responsibilities” as student activists. (And here I thought that if my parents were paying $60K a year for me to go to school, my first responsibility would be to study!) What I found especially of interest is that both this and a previous story in the Herald suggest that one incident that...

    GOP front-runner Donald Trump refused to pick sides in the conflict between Israel and Palestine in last night’s town hall on MSNBC. “I don’t want to get into it,” he told moderators Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “If I win, I don’t want to be in a position where I’m saying to you [my choice] and the other side now says, ‘We don’t want Trump involved
let me be sort of a neutral guy,” said the billionaire businessman. Trump described the Middle Eastern struggle as the “toughest deal in the world right now to make.” “A lot of people say an...

    An Israeli parliamentarian has drawn ire and ridicule after suggesting "Palestine" is a borrowed term that Palestinians themselves cannot pronounce. "The letter P doesn't exist in Arabic, so the borrowed term Palestine is worth debating," MK Anat Berko (Likud) said during a parliamentary debate on Wednesday night. [...] In Arabic, the word is written with an F and is pronounced "Falesteen." Palestinian Arabs not fluent in English often use the letter B as a substitute for P when speaking the language. [...] "Don't you have a brain?" MK Tamar Zandberg, from the left-wing Meretz party, shouted during the session. ...

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Those who view Israel as a stepping stone for redemption and as the Jewish national spiritual homeland will act differently in responding to Palestinian violence than those who view Israel merely as a safe haven. Thus, the government should do more than just approve security operations against the terrorists. It should approve increased construction in Judea and Samaria and in Jerusalem.

  • Bush's 'Palestine' plan upstaged

    WASHINGTON AND JERUSALEM - President Bush seemed poised early this week to put Palestinian statehood on the fast track. But by announcing a new policy of retaking Palestinian-controlled land in response to acts of terrorism, Israel appears to be changing the timetable – if not the outcome – of the Bush administration's efforts. Taken after this week's devastating suicide bombing in Jerusalem, the Israeli policy might be seen as a natural outgrowth of a strategy set forth by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon since he took office in March 2001. But the announcement also throws a wrench in US plans to...

    France will recognize a Palestinian state if its efforts in coming weeks to try to break the deadlock between Israelis and Palestinians fail, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Friday. "France will engage in the coming weeks in the preparation of an international conference bringing together the parties and their main partners, American, European, Arab, notably to preserve and make happen the solution of two states," he said. Fabius said that as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, France had a responsibility to try to keep up efforts to find a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.

    In an article published on National Public Radio's (NPR) website Monday, a map of the Middle East failed to include Israel, labeling Palestine in its place. The map was an illustration accompanying the article "What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears." The article referenced travelers' fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region. Immediately following the publication, the website's comment section was flooded with criticism from readers and journalists who questioned the online publication's decision to use an illustration of this nature. As a result of the abundance of complaints, NPR removed the photo and...

    "I'm proud of him." That's what the father of Dafna Meir's murderer said when the Palestinian media asked him what he thinks of his cold-blooded son Murad Adais. On Sunday afternoon, Adais butchered Meir in her home, in front of her children. Whether Adais Sr. is really happy that his son will rot in prison is less important than the fact that he said what he said to his home crowd. He knows that his audience thinks his son is a hero. And so he played to his audience. Since last September when the Palestinians began their current terrorist onslaught,...

    A senior member of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas's inner circle has insisted that any "two-state solution" with Israel would merely be a "phase" in the ultimate dismantlement of the State of Israel. Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi made the comments in a recent interview with Ma'an TV - the same interview in which he made widely-publicized comments defending Nazi leader Adolf Hitler as "not corrupt" and calling him "daring." Tirawi began by expressing satisfaction with the ongoing "intifada" - referring to the wave of terrorist attacks against Israelis - which he said had succeeded in "uniting the Palestinian...

    Israel's prime minister has denounced a call by Sweden's foreign minister to investigate whether recent killings of Palestinians were "extrajudicial". Benjamin Netanyahu said Margot Wallstrom's remarks were "outrageous... immoral and... stupid". Ms Wallstrom had called for "thorough and credible investigations" into the deaths. Some 155 Palestinians - mostly attackers, Israel says - have been killed in unrest since October. In that time, 26 Israelis have been killed in stabbing, shooting or car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli-Arabs. The attackers who have been killed have either been shot dead by their victims or security forces. Others have been arrested. On Tuesday,...
