Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas spent the better part of an hour in his address on Thursday at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly ranting about “Israeli aggression” and America’s “immoral and inhumane” decision last year to halt funding to UNRWA, recycling old themes and obsessing on hate.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency has supported the millions of Arab descendants of those who fled the wars of 1948 and 1967 as primary “refugees” – an expensive and self-defeating policy carried out for no other population group anywhere else on the planet – and the Trump administration finally called a halt to its support when the agency refused to upgrade those policies with an eye towards a more streamlined budget.
As for “Israeli aggression,” Abbas delivered his remarks just hours after a Palestinian Authority teen terrorist armed with a knife tried to kill an Israeli policewoman near the Purification Gate in the Temple Mount Compound in the Old City of Jerusalem...
The number of outright lies that came forth from the podium during his address was unusual even for a speech from Abbas!
The reason for the Palestinian Authority leader’s rage was obvious: The US, he said “has undertaken extremely aggressive and unlawful measures, declaring Jerusalem as the so-called capital of Israel and moving its embassy there.” Abbas has never managed to move past this point...
And on, and on… “We have not found an Israeli partner and found obstacles and challenges imposed by the Israeli government that continues to refuse to come to the negotiating table.” (Abbas, and Arafat before him, and the entire population of fake Palestinians were never interested in peace!)
Of course, one has to actually seek a partner in order to find one – something no one in the Palestinian Authority government can ever really be accused of doing... (It is not the first time international anti-Semites of the UN provided the stage for the representative of the fake people, who are only interested in destruction of the Jewish state, to spread venomous lies! They never invited representatives of Tibet to talk about Chinese occupation, or leaders of Chechnya about the cruelty of Russia.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR - SHANA TOVA!
To all my friends and true supporters of not just Israel, but also of Zionist inspirations of the Jewish people - End occupation by the enemies and re-unite the Jewish homeland, Eretz-Israel! We have the right to live in peace on Jewish ancestral land! We need brave leadership to achieve it!
I do not tolerate brainless idiots and anti-Semites! At the same time, I pity self-hating and delusional Jews, who think that by appeasing our enemies they would get respect and be accepted as equals by Jew-haters! Only by self-respect and pursuing our own national goals will we gain the respect that is due to us!
I am not talking about fighting terrorism, but about ending occupation of Jewish land by enemies, who are continuously killing Jews and have all intention to commit another Holocaust - if they could, it would have been done a long time ago! Israel needs leadership that is committed to the future - not another useless ceasefire!
Polish President Andrzej Duda blamed Israel for Poland's (chronic) anti-Semitism. Meeting with American Jewish leaders at the Polish Consulate in New York, Duda criticized Israel's lack of regret over statements regarding Poland's participation in the Holocaust. (Anti-Semites can't stand the truth and always blame Jews! This highly resilient disease needs extreme form of global eradication! Poland is still denying the repulsive role Polacks played in the killing of 3,000,000 of its Jewish citizens.)
Senior Hamas official, Mousa Abu Marzouq, said there's a decline in the number of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon due to pressure by local authorities. They are Lebanese residents, who are registered as 'Palestinian refugees' and their descendants (already 4th generation), who were born in that country reside in residential neighbourhoods known as "refugee camps", have limited work options and are refused citizenship. (So much for ‘brotherly’ love! Arab states do not really care about fake Palestinians anymore – used them as a weapon against Israel. Arab masters have realised that Jews are here to stay, and they need Israel’s help to deal with Iran.)
UNRWA's annual budget is $1.2 billion, and the organization intends to introduce an identical budget next year. Donor countries expressed their willingness to contribute to UNRWA's annual budget, which is facing a $120 million deficit. Created in 1949, UNRWA supplies aid to more than three million of the five million registered “Palestinian refugees” in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and territories assigned to the Palestinian Authority. (No other group of refugees has been honoured with such privilege, but fake Palestinians, just because they are enemies of Jews!)
While admitting he took PM Netanyahu's pre-election annexation statements in Judea and Samaria with a "pinch of salt," Jordan's king added that such comments do "not help at all." Netanyahu said that if elected he would immediately annex the Jordan Valley, and after that, in consultation with US President Donald Trump, would extend sovereignty to other settlements and “vital areas.”
The alliance of Israel's biggest Arab parties submit a letter to President Rivlin, clarifying their backing of Blue and White leader to form government doesn't include the 3 members of the far-left Balad party. This puts Gantz’s center-left bloc at only 54 seats, one less than what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s bloc is expected to receive.
France, Britain and Germany said on Monday that it is clear Iran was responsible for an attack on Saudi oil facilities on September 14. The three governments also called on Tehran to agree to negotiations on its nuclear and missile programs as well as regional security issues. (No, they are still delusional!)
There is a surge in violence in Arab Israeli towns that continued with a series of brutal crimes leaving one dead and several seriously injured. More than 60 Arab Israelis have been murdered so far in 2019. Police have been struggling to enforce law and order in Arab communities, where there are thousands of illegal weapons which perpetuate gun violence. In the first half of 2019, police have seized 3,661 weapons, 80% of which were found in Arab communities. (There are no Palestinians - they are mix of different Arab tribes and various ethnicities! If it was not for their common hate of Israel/Jews, they would have annihilated each other a long time ago.)
Quote of the Week:
“The Zionist regime is too weak to be considered a threat against a powerful establishment such as the Islamic Republic, which has surrounded it from the east, west, north and south... Enemies of the Islamic Republic have well realized that if they initiate any aggression against Iran, they will not be the ones to end it." - Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Abbas Nilforoushan - Delusional enemies of Israel actually believe in their own lies, while thousands of Iranian soldiers have been killed in Syria!
The United Nations released an interim report of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief on the "Combating anti-Semitism to Eliminate Discrimination and Intolerance Based on Religion or Belief."
The report summarizes that anti-Semitic violence against Jewish individuals and sites "is significant and left unchecked by governments. It has a number of key findings, including the rise of anti-Semitism from three main sources: "growing use of anti-Semitic tropes by white supremacists including neo-Nazis and members of radical Islamist groups"; increase in "'left-wing' anti-Semitism [that] employ anti-Semitic narratives or tropes in the course of expressing anger at policies or practices of the Government of Israel"; and "notes claims that the objectives, activities and effects of the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement are fundamentally anti-Semitic."
The report notes that in the US in 2017, 58 percent (1,749) of religiously-motivated bias "were driven by anti-Semitic bias."Governments also enact laws and policies that restrict Jewish practice, including limiting kosher slaughter methods or barring Jews from political participation in higher office.
In response to the report, Israel's ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, commented that "we welcome the release of this unprecedented report on the subject of anti-Semitism. The report reflects the organizational change towards Israel. The assertion that the BDS movement encourages anti-Semitism is an important UN statement. As I have said many times, anti-Semitism has no place in our society, and must be denounced everywhere and from every platform."
(70+ years after WW2, anti-Semitism would be eradicated, or, at least, severely limited, long time ago, if it was not deeply rooted in a political structure/system of many governments - mainly Europeans, as well as of the UN - and their appeasement policy toward Arab and Muslim states, with the anti-Semitic policy camouflaged as an anti-Israel one!)
