    Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said on Saturday night that the White House is now dominated by right-wing pro-Israelis. It should be noted that she intended this to be a negative comment on the new administration Ynet, a Hebrew language Israeli news service, reported that Ashrawi bemoaned the right-wing, pro-Israel stance of President Trump’s administration. “We used to say there were settlers in the Israeli coalition borne of the far right that detests Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims. But today we say there are settlers inside the White House,” she said. “The administration has adopted the extreme...

    Matthew Lee and Richard Lardner, Associated Press January 23, 2017 Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority. GOP members of Congress had been holding up the money. A State Department official and several congressional aides say the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president. More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations.(snip)

    Relations between the Holy See and Palestine were upgraded in 2015 with the signing of an accord expected to lead to the establishment of a Palestinian embassy in the Vatican at some point this year. Israel was angered by the accord, which came two years after the Vatican recognized Palestine as a state. Pope Francis has also called Abbas “an angel of peace.” Abbas is a vicious man who incites Israel was angered by the accord, which came two years after the Vatican recognized Palestine as a state. Relations with the Jewish state were also strained by Francis describing Abbas...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) Security Forces have been revealed to be actively policing in Arab suburbs of the capital city of Jerusalem, in a region classified as Area B in the 1994 Oslo Accords. The Palestinian Wafa news agency reported on Thursday that the PA's Al-Quds (Jerusalem) suburb police were active in Eizariya, a neighborhood located east of Abu Dis between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim. In the suburb, the PA force seized illegal drugs, consisting of 55 pills of Ecstasy (MDMA) as well as other drugs including crystal meth and hashish. The myriad of regions in Judea and Samaria classified...

    The Ariel Police detained five people - including three minors - overnight Saturday/Sunday, on suspicions of entering Joseph's Tomb outside Shechem (Nablus). Their attorney, Itamar Ben-Gvir, reported that some detainees were bleeding after Palestinian Authority (PA) police found them and beat them; two of them are suffering from head injuries. On Saturday night, the detainees arrived at the Tomb together with about 30 people to protest the site's arson by Palestinian Arabs last week. The PA police beat as many people as possible upon their entry to the site, however, banging their heads against their jeeps until the IDF arrived;...

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas made good on his threat to drop a bombshell on the United Nations General Assembly today when he announced that he will stop abiding by the Oslo Accords. The Accords have been the basis for relations between his group and Israel for over the last 20 years. Abbas claims that they are going to ignore the Accords because he claims Israel is already ignoring them. “As long as Israel refuses to commit to the agreements signed with us, which render us an authority without real powers, and as long as Israel refuses to cease settlement...

    Thousands of young people are now employed on campuses around the world, well financed and well organized, in an unprecedented effort that challenges the very legitimacy of Israel on every possible academic and economic front. They call their movement: BDS – Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions. Over the next few days, Mr. Sheldon Adelson and Mr. Haim Saban have called an emergency meeting of organizations concerned about BDS to answer two questions. ● From where does the finance and organizational support for BDS emanate? ● How can BDS be stopped? The answers may be easier to ascertain than one would expectMost...

    The internal tension in the Arab cities of Shechem (Nablus) and Jenin in Samaria has long been growing and threatening to boil over, as the Palestinian Authority's (PA) leading Fatah faction and its security apparatus clash. The two cities, which are under full control of the PA as per the 1993 Oslo Accords, in recent days became the scenes of violence between Fatah, which features a "military wing" named the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, and the PA Security Forces. An exchange of gunfire was reported last Friday at Jenin between armed men, apparently from Fatah, and members of the PA Security...

    The U.S. fears that without a cash injection, the Palestinian Authority could collapse, entailing serious security implications for Palestinians and Israelis. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the issue Saturday with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond in London. Kerry said the possibility of the Palestinian government halting security cooperation with Israel or disbanding because of its economic predicament was real. The U.S. is trying to find a solution. …

    Members of a Long Island family testified Monday that the Sept. 11 attacks and its lesson that terror can happen anywhere persuaded them to cancel a trip to Disney World and instead visit Jerusalem in early 2002, when four of them were seriously injured in a suicide bombing. Mark Sokolow, a lawyer, and his wife, Rena, testified as lead plaintiffs in a $1 billion lawsuit in Manhattan federal court against Palestinian authorities for six attacks in Israel from 2002 to 2004 that killed or wounded Americans. Their three daughters, two of them hurt in the blast, testified as well. The...

    The IDF Civil Administration ordered the expropriation on Tuesday of land between the Samaria communities of Hizmeh and Adam, both of which are located just north of Jerusalem, so as to widen the local road there to have two lanes and ease traffic congestion. However, Arutz Sheva has learned that just hours after the order was given, the Palestinian Authority (PA) sent representatives to the area and started illegally building corrugated iron structures to establish facts on the ground and prevent the usage of the previously empty land. Shortly after learning about the development, members of the Regavim watchdog group...

    Let’s concede for a moment that most of us don’t believe the United States should be taking sides in conflicts abroad. Even so, most Americans would probably agree that at a minimum our diplomatic efforts should not cause unnecessary harm. Which brings me to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent misadventure in the Middle East. It seems like a rather big deal that Egypt, Israel, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia—ostensibly, all allies of ours—agree on anything. This development, one imagines, might be something the United States would be interested in fostering rather than destroying. Certainly, the idea that Hamas’ power should...

    It's hard not to admire Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's brazenness. Two weeks ago, Abbas signed on to fifteen international agreements that among other things require the PA to respect human rights and punish war criminals. And this week, he signed a unity deal with two genocidal terror groups all of whose leaders are war criminals. Every leader of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the two parties who signed the deal with the PLO are war criminals. Under the Geneva Conventions, which Abbas signed onto just a couple of weeks ago, he is required to put them on trial, for their...

    For over two hours, the Cabinet, at its weekly meeting Sunday, discussed incitement and the culture of hatred in the PA. A Government Press Office (GPO) release said that Intelligence Affairs Minister Dr. Yuval Steinitz and the Director General of his ministry, Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Yossi Kuperwasser, presented the annual “Palestinian Incitement Index” that includes new findings from the recent months, during which diplomatic negotiations have been conducted. The findings show that incitement against Israel and the Jewish people is continuing on official media channels including—inter alia—by bodies that are very close to the PA Chairman and in educational and religious...

    EU Observer ^ | 11.12.13 @ 10:20 (Dec. 11) | Nikolaj Nielsen
    The EU is knowingly paying Palestinian civil servants who have not worked in years, its spending watchdog says. The Luxembourg-based European Court of Auditors published its findings in a report, out on Wednesday (11 December), on the EU’s “Pegase” program. It noted that the Union has paid the Palestinian Authority (PA) around €200 million a year between 2008 and 2012 to cover public sector salaries. The money has funded approximately half of the PA’s 170,000 civil servants and pensioners. Beneficiaries are supposed to meet basic EU criteria. But in Gaza, up to 24 percent of people on the payroll of...

    Under Sequester, U.S. Giving Islamists $500 Million Posted 07/29/2013 06:49 PM ET Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he's earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of...

    The time has come to reveal the Palestinians’ true colors. While world leaders attempt to cajole and nudge the two sides into negotiations, only one side consistently says it is ready to sit face to face without preconditions—Israel. The Palestinians, on the other hand, refuse to meet unless Israel agrees in advance to several demands. This should be a red flag indicator of their disingenuous intentions. … The Palestinians do not wish to see a Jewish state of Israel as their neighbor. In fact, if they had their way, Israel would cease to exist altogether in favor of one Arab...
