Both the PLO and the Palestinian Authority were boycotting the US-initiated economic conference in Bahrain... (Israel was not even invited!)
At one time, the PA and PLO were potentially important actors in the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Today, there is no question that they represent a small and ever shrinking percentage of the Palestinians.
Their participation in the Bahrain conference would contribute nothing of substance...
The PLO was established in 1965.
Its goal was and still is Destruction Israel.
While PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, the PA, Fatah, and the PLO were quick to depose the democratically elected (in 2006) Hamas leadership in the West Bank, Hamas continues to rule the Gaza Strip. In this context, when considering the fact that the PA and PLO only actually represent less than a half the Palestinians ostensibly living under PA rule...
Trump administration is questioning what happened to the billions of dollars of international aid that have been pumped into the PA over the past two and half decades.
This is the worst nightmare of the PA and PLO, and the real reason they refuse to participate in the conference... instead of using the massive aid that they have received to invest in the Palestinian people, they have abused it for their own gain. (But the main reason has not changed. Peace with Israel is not an option – They just want to destroy the Jewish state and kill Jews!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
They say, “People learn from their own mistakes” and “A smart person learns from mistakes of others”. Stupid ones are unable to learn even after making obvious mistake many times. Old guards of political leadership of Israel are not idiots but self-serving traitors or psychologically damaged victims of Arab terror. If not for them the Arab-Israel conflict would be resolved and Jews would live in peace on reunited ancestral land a long time ago!
White House adviser Jared Kushner hailed the US-led economic workshop in Bahrain as a “tremendous success,” as he made another appeal for the Palestinians to consider Washington’s $50 billion economic stimulus plan. The proposal — which aims in 10 years to create a million new jobs, slashing unemployment and improving living standards in the West Bank, Gaza and across the Middle East — has been rejected by Palestinians because it does not include a framework for resolving their conflict with Israel. (That imeans, to make occupation of Jewish land by enemies permanent! One thing he is right about - "The diplomatic community was “wasting everybody’s time” again by repeating the same talking points and offering the same solutions year after year.")
Israel confirmed Friday morning that it had reached an agreement for a truce with the Hamas terror organization. Israel will expand the fishing area open to Gazan boats to 15 miles from the shore. Dozens of boats confiscated for straying from the approved fishing area will be returned as part of the deal. In addition, Israel will resume the transfer of fuel to Gaza, in response to the ongoing balloon terrorism. (So much is given for nothing - till next terror wave! Increase of terror attacks in Judea and Samaria has already begun!)
Despite the truce agreement between Israel and Hamas, approximately 7,000 Palestinian Arabs rioted on Friday in several locations along the border. In addition, 14 fires erupted in communities as a result of incendiary balloons fired from the Strip. (When will stupidity end? Israel needs strong, self-respectful Zionist government!)
Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, with the help of Civil Administration officials, is expected to make it easier for the state and residents to cope with false land ownership claims by Arabs in Judea and Samaria. "Until now, there was nobody authorized to make a determination, and they would seek out surveyors and do all sorts of stunts" said Rabbi Ben Dahan. (It is so OVERDUE! Let hope, it will work and allows Jews live freely on Jewish land.)
Hamas and UNRWA coordinate their activities. Hamas notifies UNRWA of its actions and tells them when to stay away so they can later claim innocence. The head of UNRWA’s employees’ union in the Gaza Strip is a fairly anonymous Hamas official who has been placed by the terror organization inside the agency as a “sleeper” who can use the organization’s resources for Hamas’ purposes.
McDonald’s Israel fast food franchise has won a seven-year tender to operate a restaurant in Ben-Gurion International Airport. The move comes despite letters of protest that were sent by the leaders of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria to Finance and Transportation ministers, and to the Israel Airport Authority, urging them not to accept the bid by McDonald’s Israel, because the franchise boycotts Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria – a violation of Israel’s anti-boycott laws.
The Haifa-based Association for Arab Culture, founded by former Balad party MK Dr. Azmi Bishara, who fled the country to Qatar after being suspected of spying for Hezbollah, is one of the biggest beneficiaries of aid from Qatar. Even though some of the founders of the Arab Culture Association had to depart for the above legal complications, the organization continues to be run by Balad activists. (Why are enemies allowed to operate in Israel freely?)
Quote of the Week:
“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”- Winston Churchill – Problem in regards to Israel is that most people, even many Jews, are not interested in facts and truth, Most are apathetic and have no interest in the issue. They form their opinion based on well orchestrated anti-Israel propaganda or/and their own anti-Semitic predisposition or self-hate!
Contiguous Two-State Deception!
by Steven Shamrak (first published in July 2011)
In a major speech at the State Department, President Obama, addressed the ‘democratic’ revolution in the Middle East and North Africa and predictably Israel became the main point of attention again. Obama, like many of his predecessors (Carter, both presidents Bush, Clinton) has made another attempt to resurrect the peace process between Israel and the so-called Palestinians.
During his recent speech, addressing the Middle-East North African issues, President Obama stated: “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps”
Even before the speech, Obama knew that it is not an acceptable proposition to both sides, Israel and PA. Israel had suffered much from Arab aggression, before it was able to free some of Jewish land from Arab occupation in 1967. To return to 1967 borders would end the hope of the Jewish people to reunify Eretz-Israel and will put Israel in existential danger again. The PA has just been pretending that it is considering the idea of peace (a tactical deception to advance Israel's destruction), as it was clearly outlined in the “Stage plan”! A few days later Obama reverted to the guarantee President Bush gave Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in 2004, but humiliation and political damage to Israel had already been done. “Shoot first, clarify later” is a commonly used tactic of political assault on Israel!
''There was nothing particularly original in my proposal,'' Obama admitted later during his presentation to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The idea of land swaps was proposed several times before, including by President George W. Bush, but more diplomatically, and was vigorously rejected by the PA. Knowing that, Obama had still felt compelled to publicly humiliate Israel again by this unacceptable idea of swapping Jewish land for Jewish land in order to accommodate the creation of another Arab-terror state.
During the years of fruitless negotiations the same idea was put on the table even by Israel several times. It was instantly squashed and rejected by PA leadership. The only reason why Obama has mentioned the “land swap” is to pretend that there is a ground for negotiation to make progress in the fake peace process. Fostering the illusion of the peace process is the surest way to continue the conflict. This is the true aim of the multifaceted game! This is consistent with the history of US involvement in Arab-Israel conflict and all players have been playing this game quite well.
In his speech Obama said, “The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.”
What map had Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, not a friend of Israel, shown to him? Where did he see “contiguous” land - connection between Gaza and Judea/Samaria (West Bank)? Is he planning to cut Israel in half? Is it OK for Israel to be non-contiguous?
Fatah, Hamas and their masters will never recognise Israel - so forget about Israel as the “Jewish state”! They made it clear many times before. The PA blatantly ignores the major Oslo Accords' requirements for recognition of Israel, stopping terror attacks and anti-Israel incitement.
A few years ago, 8,500 Jews were forcefully removed from Gaza. There are almost 500,000 Jews living in Judea and Samaria. The PA is planning to create another Islam dominated state without Jews! Why is the transfer of Jews from their ancestral land, in order to accommodate bogus claims of the terror supporting population, satisfactory to the international community? And why is it not considered a violation of the 4th Geneva Convention? In contrast, why is the transfer of the fake Palestinians to Sinai, a vast contagious land with very low population and various resources, not acceptable? This is the hypocrisy of fake international law, perpetuated by international anti-Semites!
Why must the state of this fake nation, which was forged in order to destroy Israel, be created on Jewish land? International anti-Semites have already displaced and committed numerous genocides and crimes against Jews in Britain, Spain and other places in Europe. Now they are assisting Arabs to finish their dirty work in the Jewish homeland!
Obama has also suggested putting aside negotiations about Jerusalem and so-called Palestinian refugee’s future. Recognition of Israel was ‘put aside’! Ending terror attacks again on Israel was ‘put aside’! Establishing a democratic government in PA is not a priority! Has this ‘genius’ negotiating tactic ever brought peace to Israel?
Why can’t we talk about fake Palestinian refugees now? During the War of Independence, which Arabs had instigated, some 460,000 people, currently known as Palestinians, left the conflict zone following orders from their leaders. Their numbers had doubled immediately following that the UN announcement for aid available to them. Several generations of professional refugees have been created as a result.
Since then, close to 850,000 Jews have been forced to leave Muslim countries. Hypocrisy must be exposed! Facts are available if someone wants to find and learn them. Jew-haters and self-hating Jews do not want to know or just purposely disregard them! The Arab-Israel peace process is a deception!
It is designed to prevent Israel from reclaiming Jewish land and establishing the sovereign Jewish state, Eretz-Israel. Western countries have been using instability in the Middle East in order to control the oil supply from Islamic states. At the same time major Islamic ideological powers and organisations (Shi’ia Iran, Wahabi Saudi Arabia, Muslim brotherhood) are using the Arab-Israel conflict to divert attention from themselves and their true Islamic agenda - global world domination of Islam. That is why they created the fake Palestinian nationin 1964. Termination of Israel is just the first step in the holy war against all “infidels”!
There is a peculiar symbiotic relationship between two adversaries. United by their hate for Jews, traditional anti-Semites of the West and Russia have become, by inaction or direct support, the allies with their own mortal enemies - Islamists! Only recently they have begun, although reluctantly, to fight ISIS!
