  • U.S. plays deadly game with Al Qaeda 'informant'

    04/25/2002 11:12:13 AM PDT · by knak · 12 replies · 40+ views
    WASHINGTON -- The drumbeat of threatening reports over the last week--terrorists planning to detonate radioactive "dirty bombs" or attack the U.S. financial system--has been all the more alarming because of their source: the captured operational commander of the Al Qaeda network, who is now being interrogated by U.S. authorities. On Wednesday, the FBI announced yet another warning, that terrorists affiliated with Osama bin Laden may try to attack American shopping centers and malls. Like the other alerts, authorities say, the information was provided by Abu Zubeida, the nom de guerre of Bin Laden's top aide, who was taken into custody...

  • Palestinian President Abbas Addresses the UN Security Council with More Bombast

    So much for the UN’s commitment to real face-to-face dialogue or moral clarity. As Ambassador Haley observed, “The problem is that the UN has proven itself time and again to be a grossly biased organization when it comes to Israel.” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas addressed the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, February 20th. He delivered many of the same old Palestinian talking points. He claimed that the Palestinians remain open to negotiations based on the pre-June 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. “We are ready to take the longest journey,” Abbas declared. “We are ready...

    Why do I say that I am an unashamed Palestinian Evangelical? Because there are those who would try to put shame upon me for either of these identities, whether by demeaning the word "Palestinian" or the word "Evangelical." In this article, as with others, I will attempt to examine both parts of our identity as Christian Palestinian Evangelicals. As always, I want to build bridges of understanding between my community and my brothers and sisters in other parts of the world. And spoiler alert – I am also going to invite you to join us at our upcoming Christ at...

    Senior Palestinian Authority leaders slammed President Donald Trump Thursday, rejecting his demand that they agree to renew final status negotiations with Israel and ‘show respect’ to the United States for the hundreds of millions of dollars a year they receive in aid. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland Thursday, President Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, touting the planned transfer of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and declaring the issue of Jerusalem “off the table” in terms of final status talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. “The hardest subject they had to...

    Today, in lieu of a normal column, would you mind if we just set a few things straight? There are issues in which a combination of forces – from conscious choices by politicians and academics to sheer ignorance by reporters and vocal but confused stars in the popular culture – have combined to cause complete misunderstandings across the country, and even across the world. In his great speech endorsing Senator Goldwater in 1964, “A Time for Choosing,” (commonly known simply as The Speech), President Ronald Reagan first made a statement that has long resonated with those of us who watch...

    ..... ....Yes, contrary to what one might expect, the Government of Israel wanted continued U.S. payments to UNRWA, fearing that their termination might cause a new intifada, the collapse of the Palestinian Authority, or renewed warfare with Hamas. Also, Jerusalem sees UNRWA as a lesser evil than alternative recipients of the money, such as the PA. ..... And even if no one replaced U.S. donations, denying UNRWA money does not get to the heart of the problem, which lies not in its sponsored activities but in its perpetuating and expanding population of "Palestine refugees" in three unique, even bizarre ways:...

    Riyad al-Malki, the Palestinian Authority (PA) official in charge of foreign affairs, on Wednesday accused Washington of "threatening" member countries of the UN General Assembly ahead of a vote on rejecting President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Malki said, according to the AFP news agency, that American officials were "committing another mistake when they have distributed this famous letter trying to threaten countries, (and) threaten their sovereign decision to choose how to vote." He was speaking at a press conference with Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu in Istanbul, shortly before both men left for New York....

    Israeli army has denied carrying out a strike in Gaza on Tuesday that killed two members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Beit Lahia in the northern part of the Hamas-run enclave. According to Palestinian Maan News agency, sources close to Islamic Jihad said that the two men — 25 year old Hussein Ghazi Hussein Nasrallah and 29 year old Mustafa Sultan — were part of the group’s armed wing Saraya al-Quds and had been working for its northern brigade’s engineering unit. The group later posted a statement on its website saying that the two men were on a “jihadist...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas has been waging a battle against U.S. President Donald Trump's intention to recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of the State of Israel but appears to be having trouble recruiting Arab leaders to the cause, Hahadashot (formerly Channel 2 News) reported Sunday. According to the report, Abbas has been calling all the leaders of the Arab and Islamic region and asked them to convene an emergency meeting of the Arab League. Despite his appeals, however, the leaders of the Arab world are not cooperating with him. The only one who expressed willingness to help...

    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has rejected American demands that he stop using foreign financial aid to pay stipends and salaries to the families of jailed Palestinian terrorists. Abbas met last week with US envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt as part of President Donald Trump's efforts to restart Middle East peace talks. According to Israeli journalists present at the meeting, Kushner, who is Trump's son-in-law, reiterated the long-standing demand that the Palestinian Authority not reward terrorism with financial gain. Congress has repeatedly threatened to halt all foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority over the payments to jailed terrorists, nearly all...

Mahmous Abbas’ “moderate” Fatah faction published the above poster on its Facebook page — showing it won’t accept any security measures on the Temple Mount, no matter how innocuous.In short, Israelis have no right to protect themselves, according to Abbas.Abbas pretends that he is against violence, but he strongly believes that Arabs have the right to carry weapons into their holy places. Why? Obviously to kill Jews or other Israelis — in what...

    ZAKA Chairman Yehuda Meshi-Zahav on Saturday night showed the scene of Friday's terror attack. On Friday night, a 19-year-old terrorist - aptly called a "beast" by Israeli prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu - murdered three members of the Salomon family and wounded a fourth. At the time, the family was eating their Friday night dinner, before holding a "shalom zachar," a traditional Friday night celebration afer the birth of a son. When the terrorist began his stabbing rampage , one of the women managed to hide her five children in a side room, locked it and called the police, thereby saving...
