    Palestinian factions including Hamas and Fatah have made progress in establishing political unity after talks in Moscow, the Russian foreign minister has said. Addressing a diplomatic conference in Turkey, Sergei Lavrov said Hamas had agreed in writing for the first time to respect the platform of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) -snip- Addressing the same event, the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said the whole world had failed the Palestinian people and that Turkey was prepared to act as a guarantor of peace in Palestine – an offer that suggests he is prepared to provide peacekeeping forces in Gaza, something...

    Hamas and Fatah are expected to attend a meeting in Moscow to discuss the future governance of a Palestinian state. Representatives from Palestinian political factions, including Hamas and Fatah, are expected to meet in the Russian capital, Moscow, to discuss the formation of a unified Palestinian government amid Israel’s war on Gaza, which has killed more than 30,000 people. Al Jazeera’s Yulia Shapovalova, reporting from Moscow, said on Thursday that while there was a lot of “uncertainty” about the meeting, it is expected to last three days for the factions to develop a “unified strategy”. “Russia has previously held similar...

    RTÉ News (Ireland) ^ | Monday, 11 Dec 2023 18:10 | Tony Connelly, Europe Editor
    EU officials will begin drawing up a list of extremist Israeli settlers who have been attacking Palestinians in the West Bank so they may be subject to potential sanctions, according to the EU’s chief diplomat. The announcement by Josep Borrell followed the statement earlier by Tánaiste Micheál Martin that Ireland would be “very open” to imposing sanctions and travel bans on extremist settlers if there is no agreement at EU level. Mr. Borrell, the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Policy, said the issue was discussed during today’s meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels. While there was as yet no...

    One of the most accurate aspects about Israel’s war with Hamas in Gaza is the use of the word Nazi to describe the terrorist enemy. No other label or historical parallel could capture the chilling ferocious madness – but not scope – of Palestinian butchery of Israelis. The Nazi vilification epithet has now become conventional Israeli discourse in public and media circles with the vivid revelation – in words and photos – of Palestinian savagery and barbarism by Hamas on October 7. Hamas terrorists, without an ounce of inhibition or remorse, shot youth in cold blood at the music festival...
  • They Are Paying for Terrorists to Murder’: State Department Confirms Palestinians Continue ‘Pay-to-Slay’ Terrorist Payments

    US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Barbara Leaf on Wednesday confirmed that the Palestinian Authority continues to make so-called ‘pay-to-slay’ stipend payments to terrorists and the families of terrorists who have killed Americans and Israelis... The Palestinian Authority makes official payments to Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, the families of ‘martyrs’ killed in attacks on Israelis, and to injured Palestinian militants. The exact size of the program is disputed, but is estimated to be around $300 million annually, or nearly 10% of the entire Palestinian Authority budget, according to the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, an...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for Hamas' elimination in an op-ed for The Atlantic published on Tuesday and said that President Biden was right not to pursue a full cease-fire. Clinton detailed her experience with the conflict in the Middle East as Secretary of State under the Obama administration and noted that Hamas violated a cease-fire agreement she brokered in the region in 2014. "So the Biden administration is correct not to seek a full cease-fire at this moment, which would give Hamas a chance to re-arm and perpetuate the cycle of violence. Hamas would claim that it...
  • Could exiled former Palestinian leader Mohammed Dahlan lead Gaza after the Israel-Hamas war?

    The former leader of Fatah in Gaza, Mohammed Dahlan, has been living in exile in the United Arab Emirates for the past 10 years, where he has become a successful businessman. Born in the Palestinian coastal enclave, Dahlan is a powerful financial force in Gaza and an influential figure in the wider region – if Hamas fell, could he return to power?

    Former President Trump suggested in a new interview that the war between Israel and Hamas will just have to “play out” despite concerns about rising civilian casualties. “So you have a war that’s going on, and you’re probably going to have to let this play out. You’re probably going to have to let it play out because a lot of people are dying,” Trump told Univision in an interview that aired Thursday night. “It should have never started. There was no way it would have started again,” Trump added. “Iran didn’t have the money because Iran is leading this. And...
  • Blinken urges united future Palestinian government for Gaza and West Bank, widening gulf with Israel

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken called on Wednesday for a united and Palestinian-led government for Gaza and the West Bank after the war ends, as a step toward Palestinian statehood. That vision sharpens U.S. differences with ally Israel on what the future should look like for the Palestinian territories once Israel’s military campaign against Hamas winds down. Blinken’s outline of what Americans think should come next for Gaza also serves as a check on the postwar scenarios floated by officials of Israel’s hard-right government and its supporters. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement Monday that Israel’s military would likely maintain security...

    [Israel's Minister of Economy Nir] Barkat, in an interview with the Daily Mail, warned that Israel would view an escalation in Hezbollah's actions as an attack by Iran. "The plan of Iran is to attack Israel on all fronts. If we find they intend to target Israel, we will not just retaliate to those fronts, but we will go to the head of the snake, which is Iran," he said. Barkat threatened "we are going to make sure they pay a heavy price if, God forbid, they open the northern front." "Lebanon and Hezbollah are going to pay a heavy...

In its narration of the historic background, it starts off about 1947 partition, however, the elephant in the room is/was that the Arabs rejected and the Jews accepted. Why was this ignored? Even Arafat acknowledged it was a mistake. And just 'how' and on what 'basis' did the Arabs rejected, via their representative Jamal Husseini? Dr. J Herf: 'Husseini claimed the Arab world's "territorial continuity" served as a "natural bulwark...

    The terror group Hamas has run the Gaza Strip since 2007, when it expelled or killed hundreds of members of its rival, Fatah. It has ruled with an iron fist, arresting, imprisoning, and even, on occasion, murdering those Gazans who have dared to oppose its rule. Now many Gazans are at the end of their tether, fed up with Hamas’ corruption and mismanagement, and exhibiting the courage that be prompted by despair, they are planning to hold an anti-Hamas rally on July 30. More on this planned rally – if it comes off, it will be the largest of its...

Republish this article (February 15, 2023 / JNS) When U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas last month, he boasted of the over one billion dollars in aid that the Biden administration had programmed for the terrorist territories. That aid has come with a very heavy price. In Feb. 2019, President Trump’s total cutoff of aid to the Palestinians became official. That year, 10 Israelis or people in Israeli controlled areas...
