    The meat cleaver maniac who hacked an off-duty cop is a Palestinian busted two months ago while screaming in Arabic outside a Brooklyn synagogue. Suspect Akram Joudeh was only in New York for Thursday’s Midtown rampage because he was appealing a deportation notice — with a hearing set for Oct. 14, a high-ranking NYPD source told the Daily News. Cops found two knives inside Joudeh’s car after answering the July report of an erratic man on Shore Parkway in Brooklyn shout “Allahu Akbar!” — or “God is great” in Arabic. But the source said investigations by the NYPD and FBI...

    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...

Life there is fraught with power outages, water restrictions, lack of medical supplies, an education system that has been weakened by bombings and forced closures, and high unemployment.

    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...

    In a Ramadhan address delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Issam Amira said that "friendship and tolerance toward infidels are unacceptable" and complained that "the word 'hostility' is all but absent from the Muslims' political vocabulary today." Insisting upon use of the word "infidel" and saying that "the strategy in Islam is hostility toward non-Muslims," Sheikh Amira asked: "What kind of tolerance is possible with these people?" The address was delivered on June 18 and was posted two days later on a YouTube page dedicated to Al-Aqsa Mosque lectures. Following are excerpts Issam Amira: The Quran verse reads:...

    The flag of pan-Arab nationalism, born out of violent rebellion and struggle (or jihad), was flown today on the floor of the Democratic National Convention. What it means that the flag of “Palestine” can be spotted in Philadelphia, with not an Old Glory in sight, is that the Democratic Party of America is taking a hard-left turn. Bernie Sanders delegate Ali Akın Kurnaz is being credited on Twitter with raising the flag which represents a violent struggle against the only functioning democracy in the region, Israel. This is the only reasonable interpretation of what hard-left activists attempt to dress up...

    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...

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. …

    While animal abuse is a problem in almost every country on earth, it is socially acceptable in very few. Militant “Islamic” countries such as Iran, where dogs are injected with acid, and China come to mind. In contrast, Internet vigilantes are now posting, in contravention of UK law regarding public identification of teenage offenders, the identities of teenagers who tortured a puppy. My personal opinion is that these individuals deserve to be shamed in public and never allowed to own any kind of pet. In contrast, I just saw a video on Facebook in which a young Palestinian child, with...

    Just what will it take to cut off US funding for Palestinian terror? That question has taken center stage amid the wave of murderous “lone wolf” attacks against Israeli civilians, egged on by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Thursday, a Palestinian killed a sleeping 13-year-old girl in the West Bank. The next day, another opened fire on a car, killing a dad and wounding his wife and two kids. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– Since September, the terror spree has left 40 dead and 430 injured. And every one of the terrorists — or their families — gets a hefty reward from Abbas’...

    A Palestinian anti-Semitic blood libel about Israel and water A double crime was committed when Mahmoud Abbas, the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, an interim self-governing body that undemocratically controls the Arabs in sections of Judea & Samaria, spoke before the European Parliament on June 23. In his speech he spouted a Jew-hating blood libel as medieval in its words as those that led to the massacre and isolation of European Jews centuries ago. Having begun his speech by condemning incitement to violence, he inexplicably said;

The address aired on the Palestinian Authority's official TV channel. Two days later, his office issued a retraction, which, according to The New York Times, read in part: "After it has become evident that the alleged statements by a rabbi on poisoning Palestinian wells, which were reported by various media outlets, are baseless, President Mahmoud Abbas has...

In an interview with the Al-Arabi Al Jadid newspaper, Zahar called on Arab countries not to promote the Arab Peace Initiative, explaining that it is merely a mechanism that will eliminate the idea of ​​establishing a Palestinian state, due to the fact that negotiations with Israel have proven to be a failure. The Arab peoples, Zahar continued, should first and foremost be concerned about...

Palestine is “desolate,” he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.” The same is true of the Palestinian Museum which opened with much fanfare and one slight problem.

    JNS.org - One of the Obama administration's least-known anti-terrorism programs was back in the news this week. After the capture of a fugitive Rwanda genocide suspect on Dec. 9, the news media noted that eight other Rwandan mass murderers are still on the run, and the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program is offering $5 million to anyone who provides information leading to their capture. Paying tipsters may not be the single-most effective way to combat terrorism, but one should not dismiss the program's contributions. Its website,www.RewardsForJustice.net, reports that more than 80 informers have received reward money. Nine "success stories"...

    Britain's leading anti-Israel organization has had its bank accounts closed, after it was revealed it may have been "inadvertently" funding Palestinian terrorism. The radical Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) - which counts UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn as one of its patrons - was informed by the Co-operative Bank that its accounts were being closed due to the "high risk" destinations of its funds, many of which are donated to Hamas-linked agencies and other extremist groups in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. ...
