    PARIS (AP) — U.S. officials have told The Associated Press that the United States is pulling out of UNESCO, after repeated criticism of resolutions by the U.N. cultural agency that Washington sees as anti-Israel. While the U.S. stopped funding UNESCO after it voted to include Palestine as a member in 2011, the State Department has maintained a UNESCO office at its Paris headquarters and sought to weigh in on policy behind the scenes. The withdrawal was confirmed Thursday by U.S. officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to be publicly named discussing the decision. It was not...
  • Did Trump Break His Promise on Jerusalem?

    President Donald Trump said Saturday he will not go ahead with his campaign promise to move the American embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, until after he pushes for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. Saying” I wanna give it a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem. “ First, President Trump should know that there is exactly zero chance for any so-called "peace deal" to be forged while the Palestinian Authority monetarily compensates terrorists who kill Jews and names squares, streets, schools and summer camps after these so-called martyrs. Second, the Palestinian Arabs desire East Jerusalem, including the...

    In this epochal year of Zionist anniversaries—the 120th of the First Zionist Conference in Basle, the 100th of the Balfour Declaration, the 70th of the 1947 UN Partition Resolution, the 50th of the Six-Day War—there is yet another to be marked: the 80th anniversary of the 1937 British Peel Commission Report, which first proposed a “two-state solution” for Palestine. The story of the Peel report is largely unknown today, but it is worth retelling for two reasons: First, it is a historic saga featuring six extraordinary figures, five of whom testified before the commission: on the Zionist side, David Ben-Gurion,...

    NEW YORK — Dina Habib Powell, the Trump administration’s Deputy National Security Advisor, was a featured speaker at a gala dinner given by a George Soros-financed group that honored a notoriously anti-Israel Palestinian legislator. At the dinner, just prior to Powell’s speech, Palestinian extremist Hanan Ashrawi received an award and delivered a 12-minute anti-Israel diatribe in which she blasted U.S.-Israel relations and accused Israel of “apartheid” and stealing “Palestinian land.”
  • Convicted Terrorist Rasmea Odeh Deported (Why Are These People Allowed Here?

    Convicted terrorist-turned-Women's March organizer Rasmea Odeh has been deported from the United States to Jordan after it was revealed that she lied on her application for a U.S. visa and for U.S. citizenship. Odeh did not state on her application that she was convicted in 1970 for two bombings in Jerusalem that resulted in the deaths of two people, and hence was tried for immigration fraud. After several appeals and a vacated sentence, on March 23, 2017 Odeh was sentenced to be deported and to be stripped of her U.S. citizenship. Her citizenship was formally revoked on August 17. Odeh was...

    Of all the leaders in the anti-Trump Women’s March earlier this year, Linda Sarsour’s name has stood out the most. After all, she’s been the subject of much media attention — most of it hardly positive, and for good reason. One need only go through her social media history to see that she supports Sharia Law, even calling for anti-Islam apologists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigette Ganriel to have their vaginas taken out (Ali was the victim of female genital mutilation as a child), and praising cop killers. She’s also public about her friendship with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, whom she describes as her...

    The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign’s Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter has gone radical on Facebook calling for “violent resistance, whether black bloc or full-scale armed conflict” in its fight against fascism, White Supremacy and Zionism. SJP’s latest event: “Smashing Fascism: Radical Resistance Against White Supremacy,” claimed “there is no room for fascists, white supremacists, or Zionists” at the Illinois university. Although SJP has its roots in anti-Zionism, since Trump entered the political realm they’ve broadened their target to include fascism and white supremacy.

    Officials in the Trump administration's State Department are standing by a recent report criticized by Congress that blamed Israel for terror attacks and claimed Palestinians rarely incite violence, telling the Washington Free Beacon that it remains unclear why terrorists engage in violent acts. Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, criticized the State Department Thursday for releasing a report portraying Israel as the culprit in terrorism and downplaying Palestinian incitement of violent acts against the Jewish state, the Free Beacon first reported. Roskam demanded the State Department alter its report to bring it more in...

    UN organization declares Israel 'occupying power' of Old City, denies Israeli sovereignty. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee passed a resolution condemning Israel for its policies in the Old City of Jerusalem Tuesday. Ten member states voted in favor of the resolution, three voted against it, and three states abstained. The resolution refers to Israel “the occupying power” in its capital and denies Israel's claims to the Old City and eastern Jerusalem. The wording of the Jordanian-sponsored resolution was softened compared to a similar resolution which was passed in 2016, with references to the Temple Mount removed. However, the resolution explicitly denied...

    Muslim scholar in Jordan attacks 'Palestinians' for distorting Koran, Jews given Israel 'until Day of Judgement.' Allah has promised Israel to the Jews -- so says Sheikh Ahmad Adwan, a Muslim scholar living in Jordan, who declared on his Facebook page recently that "Palestine" doesn't exist. Blogger Elder of Ziyon translated Arab news sources that this Saturday reported on Adwan's statements, in which he quotes the Koran saying Allah assigned Israel to the Jews until the Day of Judgement (Sura 5 Verse 21), and that Jews are the inheritors of Israel (Sura 26 Verse 59). "I say to those who...

    UNRWA should be forced to make a choice. Either show some backbone and not participate in advancing a curriculum in its schools that directly contradicts the two-state solution the UN claims it supports, or lose all funding from the United States The spokesperson for United Nations Secretary General António Guterres issued a statement on Monday on behalf of the Secretary General strongly defending the work of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The statement defended UNRWA against what the Secretary General considered to be unfair criticism. The statement expressed the Secretary...

    Today, the Washington Post dedicated an entire section of the paper to airing Palestinian grievances and talking points. The section is called “Occupied: Year 50.” One of the stories is about a Palestinian cancer patient whose children can’t get into Israel to visit her. Another shills for a Palestinian real estate developer who is building a planned city on the West Bank but fears the Israel Defense Force will thwart this noble ambition. The story I want to focus on is about the difficulties a Palestinian construction worker faces on a daily basis as he must pass through an Israeli...

    With Islamist forces waiting to take advantage of any power vacuum, the area would plunge into Somalia-like chaos Much has been written about the “two state solution” (TSS) or “two states for two peoples” (TSTP) as the path to resolving the conflict between Israel and Arab and Muslim countries and Palestinians, but at the same time there appears to be little understanding of why it consistently fails. It fails because it is focused on territory, Palestinian statehood, rather than ideology – Palestinian nationalism and Palestinianism, the belief that Jews have no right to a state and that Jewish nationalism, Zionism,...

    A pair of rabbis took to the pages of The New York Daily News to defend a controversial commencement speaker at CUNY from charges of terrorism. Yet and still, in their op-ed, "Linda Sarsour is a friend of Jews," Rabbi Brat Ellman and Rabbi Ellen Lippmann may have given Sarsour’s detractors more material. For example, they note of an exchange on Twitter between the Palestinian-American activist and Ayaan Hirsi Ali on the subject of gender mutilation that "Sarsour's retort -- that Ali and others she disagrees with 'don’t deserve to be women,' so she wishes she could 'take their vaginas...

    A silence fell on Arab media outlets after publication of a report about the Gulf States’ plan for partial normalization with Israel. No official response by Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States or Qatar was heard. The regular pundits preferred to deal with other matters, as if they had neither heard nor seen the scoop in the Wall Street Journal. The usual government spokespeople in Israel were also apparently struck by a condition affecting the vocal chords. When similar reports emerged in the past, official spokesmen, Arab and Israeli alike, would quickly issue a denial. But this time there were no...

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat and former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni spoke in separate interviews on the sidelines of a regional World Economic Forum meeting. Erekat remains the chief Palestinian negotiator while Livni is a leading opposition member of Israel's parliament....

    Change the name - change the game Correcting this fabricated United Nations Arab narrative is urgently required The United Nations publication “The Origins and Evolution of the Palestine Problem 1917-1988” (“Study”) has deliberately misrepresented the actual wording of General Assembly Resolution 181 passed on 29 November 1947 - deceiving many academics who have disseminated the Study’s false message. The Study has been published by the Division for Palestinian Rights of the United Nations Secretariat for, and under the guidance of, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.

    An immediate retraction, correction and apology must be made by the UN Secretariat An official United Nations document published by the Division for Palestinian Rights of the United Nations Secretariat contains a deliberately altered record of a 1922 parliamentary House of Lords debate on the Balfour Declaration. The Balfour Declaration—dated 2 November 1917 - called for the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people—it being clearly understood that nothing would be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in...

    as everyone has heard today, a suspect was apprehended in Israel today for making threatening calls to JCCs around the country. Unlike the Muslims, I will not argue for leniency or mercy for him on account of colonialism/imperialism/Zionism, nor will I do what a lot of blacks do by blaming bad behavior on slavery/Jim Crow. Whatever his motive, rape him, do whatever to him in prison and I'll laugh at him. What likely IS the culprit is the plague of Jewish self-hatred. I've seen it from the time I was a kid to the present, and this loser is an...
