Happy New Year – ShanaTova!
Israel wants a real peace agreement with the Palestinians, which will ensure Israeli security and will not be satisfied with "papers and promises", said Premier Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of the start of direct negotiations between the sides.
"We will not allow the firing of thousands of rockets and missiles from Palestinian (controlled) territories into Israel as was the case when we pulled out of Lebanon and Gaza," "That is not peace? We want real agreements on the ground, that ensure the security of Israel and its citizens," Netanyahu said.
According to the Ha'aretz daily, he told the Likud members that "real peace lasts for generations," citing as an example the peace agreement Israel and Egypt signed in 1979. (Is Egypt a true peace partner or just a camouflaged enemy, who is waiting for opportunity to stab Israel in a back? It is just 31 years, not “generations"!) He said peace was an attainable goal, but noted that it was not entirely up to Israel alone. (It will never happen - It is time to change direction!)
Netanyahu turned to Abu Mazen on Wednesday night and said: “You are my partner for peace.” – With the partner like this, who needs enemy!
True Face of the ‘Peace’ Partner. As direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority began last week in Washington, the PA gave an award to a woman for raising four sons who all murdered Israelis in terrorist attacks. All her sons took part in terrorist attacks in which innocent Israeli civilians were murdered. PA Minister of Prisoners Affairs Issa Karake praised the Abu Hamid family as “a model of willpower and of the struggle for the independence of Palestine.”
Sober Assessment of Reality. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman does not believe it was possible to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians: "I do not believe that a comprehensive agreement with the Palestinians is possible within a year, nor even during the next generation… Since the Oslo accords 17 years ago, important politicians have made multiple pledges and statements that nothing ever came of… We have not examined in depth the reasons why we have paid such a high price for each accord with the Palestinians which has had no results."

Problem is not Abbas - It is all of Them! A day after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urged Israel to take advantage of “this historic opportunity” to achieve peace via the imminent direct negotiations, Hamas and 10 other Palestinian resistance groups demanded that he resign because of his “failure to resist heavy American and Israeli pressure” to abandon his preconditions for the talks.
Peace Partner or Partners in Crime. A cell of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the so-called military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah organization, claimed responsibility for a shooting attack that targeted two Israeli civilians in the drive-by shooting in the West Bank, one day after a similar attack, perpetrated by Hamas, left four Israeli civilians dead.
Worning to Lebanon. Frederick Hoff, assistant to US Middle East Peace Envoy George Mitchell, warned Lebanon that if it did not prevent any recurrence of the border-fire incident that occurred last month, the IDF is ready to implement a plan to destroy within four hours all Lebanese military infrastructure, including army bases and offices, should a similar confrontation occur in the future.
Arabs Silence One Another. Palestinian Authority human rights groups are reporting that both the PA government in Judea and Samaria as well as the Hamas government in Gaza inflict abuse on one another, carrying out arbitrary arrests, ban rivals from travel, exclude them from civil service jobs and suppress opposition media. (The US did not want to talk to Taliban, Al Quida or Sadam. Both Hamas and Fatah are terrorist organisations, committed to obliteration of Israel. Why should Israel negotiate with them?)
Stupidity in Action:
Israeli President Apologizes to Arab Photographer over Security Check... – Has the PA President appologised for killing of four Israelis?
Tying Knot before the War. Syrian army and the Hezbollah terrorist organization have reached a military cooperation agreement. The agreement includes intelligence cooperation on Israeli targets and a possible exchange of information on the types of weapons used by the Israeli army. Syrian President Bashar Assad put his cards on the table while hosting Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri on Sunday night and urged a joint Syrian-Lebanese-Hizbullah front against Israel.
Should not be Israel's Problem Also. In a recent interview she made to a website identified with the Palestinian Authority, Knesset Member Hanin Zoabi (Balad) said that she does not represent Israel, but rather represents a struggle that does not recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Speaking to the website Elaph, Zoabi said: "Our voice is painful to the Israeli public on national issues, because it feels we are a threat to the state. Therefore, when we demand national rights, we threaten the Jewishness of the state. It's true, but it's not my problem, this is the problem of the racist definition of the state (of Israel) as a Jewish state." (Why should existence of fake Palestinian nation be Israel’s problem? Only by stopping the peace process sharade and removing enemies from Jewish land we can begin creating true peace in Israel!)
Quote of the Week:
“Osama bin Laden never mentioned the Arab-Israeli conflict as a reason for 9/11. He was angered by US involvement and influence in the Arab world, particularly in Saudi Arabia. Bin Laden only jumped on the Palestinian issue after seeing them celebrating 9/11, and realizing that the fractious, feudal Muslims could only agree on one thing, that being the hatred of the ‘little Satan’.” - Len Bennett
Taliban does not Care. The death toll from a Taliban suicide attack on a Shiite Muslim procession rose to 65. About 150 people were wounded and some remained in critical condition after the bombing Friday in the south-western city of Quetta. The attack was the second in a week against Shiites for which the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility. A triple suicide bombing on Wednesday night killed 35 people at a Shiite ceremony in the eastern city of Lahore. (Many News agencies have conveniently omitted that the procession was conducted in support of so-called Palestinians during ‘Al-Quds Day’. Lives of Muslims are not secret for Taliban and Al Quida. And terror is not about ‘Palestinians’!)
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the moving spirit behind the initiative to establish a mosque within a short distance from Ground Zero presents himself as a Muslim moderate, striving to find common ground between religions and reveal the "true essence" of American Islam.
In a letter to The New York Times, published on November 27, 1977, responding to the historic visit of Sadat in Israel he called on Muslims to "give a chance for peace." But he added, "I say to my Arab brothers, the Prophet Muhammad taught... after the war with the infidels of Mecca, which lasted many years, he acceded to their demands in the Hudaibiah Convention, demands that his colleagues saw as most humiliating. And yet, peace has become the most effective weapon against the infidels.” Muhammad used the period to rearm and eventually conquered Mecca and defeated the heretics.
Rauf added "real peace, is impossible with a pure Jewish state in Palestine... in a real peace, which will be in our lifetimes, Israel will become yet another Arab state with a Jewish minority."
