Our world: The end of Mahmoud Abbas

Jerusalem Post ^ | 8/29/16 | CAROLINE B. GLICK
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...

Mr. Trump, Please Don’t Speak with Mahmoud Abbas

Jewish Press ^ | 1-17-17 | Alan Bauer
In less than a week, Donald Trump will become the 45th president of the United States. Many here in Israel are hopeful for a more positive relationship with Washington and greater support for Israel in its dealings with the UN and neighboring states. While I know from the pictures of everyone coming into and out of Trump Tower that there does not seem to be a single person in America who does not want something from the incoming president, I will take the liberty of asking for one more thing: please do not talk to Mahmoud Abbas or representatives of...

What’s today – Sunday? That’s the day Mahmoud Abbas threatened to cut off all ties with Israel. On Friday, he threatened to cut off all ties with the United States.

On Wednesday, he threatened to go before the ICC, International Criminal Court to have everybody cut off and arrested.

Mahmoud Abbas and Other Soviet Ghosts What the revelation of Abbas’s KGB service tells us about the Russian game of subversion. September 9, 2016 Caroline GlickOriginally published by the Jerusalem Post. Channel 1’s report Wednesday that in 1983, current Palestinian Authority Chairman and PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas served as a KGB agent is hardly the story of the year, but it does remind us of certain half-forgotten facts about the Cold War that are becoming ever more relevant today. The PLO’s close and servile relationship with the KGB was first exposed in a systematic way in 1987, with the publication...

He is the head of the snake. There will be the usual roundups after Wednesday's bloodshed in Tel Aviv - four dead, more wounded from the hands of Palestinian Arab terrorists. Two men are said to be responsible for this act of savagery against innocent civilians enjoying a day at the Sarona Market in the heart of town. This was Israel's mistake. The mistake was to grant respectability to a group of thugs. They were captured. They are in custody and Israel's law enforcement and security services are in the process of finding out who they are, where they came...

Mahmoud Abbas: Failing the Palestinians and PeacePosted By Joseph Puder On December 29, 2014 @ 12:35 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments Mahmoud Abbas, (aka Abu Mazen) has been a failure as the Palestinian “Rais.” He failed to lead the Palestinian Authority (PA) toward peace with Israel, and he mismanaged the alleged goal to achieve statehood for the Palestinians. Instead of facing the tough issues and making compromises required in negotiating peace and statehood with the Israelis, Abbas chose an alliance with the Gaza controlled terrorist group Hamas. Following Abbas’ pact with Hamas last April, Israel broke off peace negotiations with the...

Mahmoud Abbas Cheers Biden's Election

Frontpagemagazine ^ | Dec 1, 2020 | Joseph Puder
The consequences for Israel -- and for the Palestinians themselves. For Mahmoud Abbas, the apparent election of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States is sheer relief. As a result of his disagreement with President Donald Trump’s “Peace of the Century,” he severed his ties with the Trump administration, and in May, he suspended the security coordination with Israel. Abbas also, among other things, refused to accept tax money Israel collected from Palestinians working in Israel that is transferred to the Palestinian Authority (PA). This has just about emptied the PA’s coffers, and brought about the near...

The Oregon shooter had a thin social media profile. On his myspace page, Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, posted a photograph of himself holding a rifle, alongside images of masked IRA gunmen and an IRA terrorist video. The IRA and Palestinian terrorism have a long history. He has just two friends — a girl and a jihadi. Check out the terror sympathizer’s page praising: “The brave Mujahideen heroes” “The Mujahideen freedom fighters of Palestine. My brothers and sisters keep on doing your thing. Allahu Akbar.” “my brave soldiers keep on fighting for the liberation of Palestine against Israel. f*ck Israel. Kill the...

Mahmoud Abbas’s Legacy Blows Up in His Face

National Review ^ | July 11, 2017 | Elliot Kaufman
The Palestinian leader’s efforts to secure a place in history appear likely to backfire in disastrous fashion. Recently, Palestinian politics have presented more questions than answers. For instance: Why has the Palestinian Authority (PA) urged Israel to send less electricity to the Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip? Why is Egypt helping Hamas? Who is Mohammed Dahlan, and why is Hamas meeting with him? And why did one of the most astute observers of Palestinian politics just declare “the end of the so-called two-state solution”? As we shall see, this drama has more to do with Palestinian and Egyptian strategic...

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Free Speech Warrior?

Reason ^ | October 9, 2018 | Matthew Petti
When Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was president of Iran, he banned Twitter. Now he is the platform's No. 1 fan. "Any type of restrictions on ideas and beliefs especially on #SocialMedia will lead to chaos and dictatorship. #FreedomOfSpeech," he tweeted in September. Since leaving office in 2013, the infamously repressive Ahmadinejad has become a vocal critic of current President Hassan Rouhani. Like many politicians around the world, Ahmadinejad in opposition has become a proponent of freedoms he was unwilling to extend to his own critics while in office. Ahmadinejad has developed a vocal presence on the internet since creating his Twitter in...

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...

Mahmoud Abbas has stepped down as the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization, paving the way for elections for a new top body. "The resignation of the president of the executive committee Mahmoud Abbas and more than half of its members have created a legal vacuum, and therefore the Palestine National Council (PNC) has been asked to meet in one month to elect a new executive committee," Yousef said in a statement. Yousef, a senior PLO committee member, added that the resignations will not take effect until the PNC meets. The PNC is the 740-member Palestinian Parliament. Members live in...

Algemeiner ^ | May 18, 2015 | Asaf Romirowsky and Alexander H. Joffe
Faced with the suffering of their own people, the Palestinians recently decided not to help. Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas rejected a deal with Israel brokered by the United Nations that would allow Palestinian refugees living in Syria to resettle in the West Bank and Gaza. Abbas stated unequivocally that “we rejected that and said it’s better they die in Syria than give up their right of return.” The Palestine Liberation Organization has also ruled out any military action to help the 18,000 or more refugees who are trapped in the Yarmouk camp near Damascus. Abbas’s cold-blooded response reveals...
