PA Model of Peaceful Co-existence!

A riot broke out early last Thursday morning as Arab men burned tires and threw stones at Israeli worshippers gathered at Joseph’s tomb in Nablus. Under previous agreements with the PA, Israeli worshippers are supposed to have free access to religious sites under PA control. In reality, however, this is not the case. In 2000, immediately after Israeli forces handed over control of Shechem to the PA, Arab mobs attacked Joseph's Tomb, ransacking it and desecrating holy items.

PA Assault on Jewish Right to Western Wall

In what is being described as yet another example of Palestinian Authority (PA) denial of the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the very legitimacy of the State of Israel, Mahmoud Abbas has claimed the Western Wall as an Arab and Islamic site. (This denial of Jewish rights was declared before the resumption of the so-called peace talks and no member of the international anti-Semitic community is “outraged”!)

Enemy will Never be Satisfied

Israel will release 26 Palestinian prisoners ahead of renewed peace talks. But Palestinian prisoners rights groups say that, upon close inspection, the deal is not the concession the Israelis are touting it to be. Fuad Al-Khafsh, the director of Ahrar Center for Prisoners Studies and Human Rights (most likely paid by UN), said the list was "disappointing for the detainees, their families and the Palestinian people generally, because it did not rely on the principle of seniority." (He prefers release of the terrorists with the fresh Jewish blood on their hands!)

Farcical Negotiations Started with Predictable Confusion

The US, Israel and the PA resume talks on Wednesday, Aug. 14. PA shunned security issues, ignoring John Kerry’s proposal for the US and Israel to determine security arrangements along the Jordan River and the West Bank. Mahmoud Abbas ruled out any Israeli presence on the West Bank - a line even more extreme and non-cooperative than that was taken by Yasser Arafat in 2000. (Future security of a country is a corner-stone of any peace negotiation. Enemies of Israel will never allow this basic right to the Jewish state!)

Fake Outcry and Condemnation

Secretary of State John Kerry revealed that he and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas were fully aware (and presumably agreed) that the Israeli government intended to continue building in parts of Judea and Samaria which "will not affect the peace map" when the decision was made to restart talks. As such, despite the "outcry" by the PA, Abbas is still committed to talks with Israel over the next nine months, he said.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

There is something terribly wrong about US international policy: the Obama administration is continuously losing respect and relevance in the Arab world and Middle East. It is still supporting the deposed Muslim Brotherhood government, which had been in the process of imposing an Islamic dictatorship in Egypt, and the Islamic government of Turkey, a NATO member, which has already neutralised the guardian of the Turkish secular constitution - the army. The Great Western defender of democracy is complacent in Islamisation and destruction of every fibre of a sign of democratic principles in most Muslim countries!

EU Missing out on Jewish Ingenuity

Israel's deputy foreign minister says Israel would rather forego a lucrative research partnership with the EU worth hundreds of millions of dollars than accept an anti-settlement clause as part of such a deal. Israel is the only non-EU country invited to participate in the Horizon2020 program. (Payback is a bitch!)

The First Step to Re-claiming Kurdistan?

After Syrian Kurds expelled them from the town of Ras al-Ain, following clashes between Kurdish forces and Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front, on the border with Turkey, in the predominantly Kurdish parts of northeastern Syria, the president of Iraqi Kurdistan has vowed to defend the large Kurdish population in neighbouring Syria from Al-Qaeda-linked rebel fighters. (Land of Kurds, Kurdistan, is occupied by five Muslims countries. Over 25 millions Kurds are denied their right to have their homeland, but nobody cares! T fake Palestinian people is the major international priority!)

Israel Creates a New Energy and Water Alliance

Israel signed an agreement with Greece and Cyprus that promises to link the three countries’ electricity grids via an underwater cable. The three countries will work together to protect natural gas fields, and have launched a project to cooperate with treatment of sewage as well as recycling water for use in farming. Israel’s partnership with Cyprus on natural gas is seen as a challenge to Turkey, which has in threatened Cyprus over gas fields it claims for itself.

Amnesty International - Usual anti-Israel Bias

Human rights organization Amnesty International condemned plans to close businesses owned by asylum seekers from Africa in South Tel Aviv. At the same time, the organisation remains silent about the Lebanese Government’s crack down on small businesses run by Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley.

Terrorists Attacked Obama's School

As President Obama offered greetings from the White House to Muslims celebrating the feast that ends the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Catholic school he attended in Jakarta was hit with a terrorist attack. Two Molotov cocktails were thrown inside the walls of the Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic School in South Jakarta by an assailant on a motorcycle

Muslim Brotherhood Command Hides in Gaza

A group of six Muslim Brotherhood officials escaped from Egypt into the Gaza Strip to lead an uprising against the military. The group was headed by Mahmud Izzat Ibrahim, known as the Brotherhood’s “iron man” and fourth in rank in its hierarchy.

Bigots “Concerned” but would not Condemn Hamas!

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay urged Hamas in the Gaza Strip not to carry out planned executions. In foreign office press release, Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt said: “I am deeply concerned at reports of plans to publicly execute prisoners in Gaza in the coming days.” Amnesty International meanwhile also called on Hamas not to carry out planned executions after the Muslim festival of Id al-Fitr.

True Brotherly Love - 44 Gunned down in Nigeria Mosque

Radical terrorist group Boko Haram slays 44 worshipers in Nigeria mosque. Twelve others also killed in simultaneous attack. (Over 4,400 Muslims were killed by their Muslims ‘brothers’ during month of Ramadan in Muslim countries!)

True Colour of FIFA

The president of FIFA, Sepp Blatter, threatened to suspend Israel because of the government’s interference in football. The threats came when Israel denied representatives of the West Asian Football Federation (WAFF), including 12 Arab national football associations, permits to enter the PA territories to play in the WAFF Under-17's Championship. (International anti-Semitic bigots are looking for any excuse to punish the Jewish state. Has FIFA made the same threats to Arab/ Muslim countries? Quite often Muslim teams refuse to play with Israel. Israel was not allowed to be a member of Asian group. Israeli, even Jewish, players are not allowed to enter most Muslim countries.)

Quote of the Week:

“Some think that the fall and destruction of Israel is only good for Palestinians. However, (such an event) will be good for all the countries of the region, and one cannot separate this threat (Israel) from Jordon, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon. For this reason, the annihilation of Israel is in the national interest of Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon.” - This statement by Hassan Nassrallah, the secretary-general of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah is supported by Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei

Strange Duality of the Peace Process

by Avi Bell

If Israel refuses to negotiate, that proves Israel is not interested in
peace. If the Palestinians refuse to negotiate, that proves
Israel is not interested in peace, because the Palestinians can see negotiations with Israel are pointless.

If Israel makes preconditions to negotiations, that proves Israel is not interested in peace, because it is trying to avoid negotiations. If the Palestinians make preconditions to negotiations, that proves Israel is not interested in peace, because the Palestinians have to force Israel to be serious in the negotiations.

If Israel makes no offer of peace, that proves Israel is not interested in peace. If the Palestinians make no offer of peace, that proves Israel is not interested in peace, because the Palestinians can see that making offers of peace with Israel are pointless.

If Israel makes an offer of peace and the Palestinians reject it, that
proves
Israel is not interested in peace, because Israel is not willing to make the kind of offer the Palestinians would accept.

If Arabs make war but offer to end it (after Israel retaliated), that proves that Israel is interested in war and Arabs are interested in peace, because the Arabs offered peace. If Israel makes war, but offers to end it, that proves that Israel is interested in war and Arabs are interested in peace, because Israel made war.

If Arabs attack, that proves Israel is interested in war and Arabs are interested in peace, because Israel provoked the Arabs to attack. If Israel attacks, that proves Israel is interested in war and Arabs are interested in peace, because Israel attacked.

If Palestinians carry out acts of terrorism, that proves that Israel is mistreating the Palestinians, because the Palestinians feel they have no choice but to carry out acts of terrorism. If Palestinians try to carry out acts of terrorism, but Israel foils them, that proves that Israel is mistreating the Palestinians, because Israel is carrying out anti-terror actions against the Palestinians even while there is no terrorism.

If Palestinians don’t try to carry out acts of terrorism, that proves that Israel is mistreating the Palestinians, because the Palestinians are good and innocent and Israel uses terrorism as an excuse to mistreat Palestinians. (Israel is positioned in no win situation. Time is up to break the internationally imposed hypocrisy!)
