Trump Factor – New Win Policy!
“There will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that. That is a hard reality.” – US Secretary of State Kerry Speaks at Saban Forum on Future Possibilities for Middle East Peace (December 2016) – People create their own reality – Jew-haters chose an Anti-Semitic one!
Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said that a framework had been agreed for talks with Israel to end a long-running maritime border dispute between the two nations that are formally at war. The US would facilitate talks between Lebanon and Israel over a wedge of 860 square kilometers (330 square miles) in the Mediterranean Sea.
The three countries’ energy ministers said “The United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, and the State of Israel, acknowledging the benefits of focusing on pragmatic steps that have tangible outcomes, agree to encourage greater coordination in the energy sector, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, oil, natural gas resources and related technologies, and water desalination technologies.”
The United States is trying to persuade more Gulf countries to strike accords with Israel, as the UAE and Bahrain did. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday urged Saudi Arabia to consider normalizing relations with Israel. “We hope Saudi Arabia will consider normalizing its relationships as well, and we want to thank them for the assistance they’ve had in the success of the Abraham Accords so far,” Pompeo said.
Sudanese media reported that the United States had issued a 24-hour ultimatum to erase Sudan from the list of pro-terrorism countries. Among the steps that Sudan was required to approve as part of the ultimatum was also an agreement with Israel. The Sudanese Sovereignty Council has reportedly decided to promote a normalization agreement with Israel.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
There are many genuine peoples/nations around the world, who are still suffering from occupation by others – Kurds, Armenians, Tibetans, Chechens, Western Saharans, Basques and many others. The so-called Palestinians are a mix of people from various lands; most of them have arrived to Palestine after Jews began rebuilding it, are not one of them. The fake nation of Palestine was forged by Soviet Union/KGB and Arab countries in 1964 to destroy Israel! Actually, they and other Arabs of the Hashemite tribe in Jordan, who were expelled from Saudi Arabia in 1922, are true occupiers of Jewish land – Eretz-Israel!
Seventy-nine percent of Saudis are in favour of a normalization deal with Israel within the next five years. More than 70 percent of respondents from four Arab nations going as far as to say Arab states will normalize ties without a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Some 59 percent of Jordanians and Saudis, along with 58 percent of Egyptians and 56 percent of respondents in the UAE said they support the normalization agreements between Israel and the Arab world. (It does not look like the Arab states really care about the fake Palestinians! The Arab world only cared about the fakestinians as a lever against Israel – they still do!)
UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain issued a joint statement Friday morning condemning Israel’s decision to approve the construction of thousands of new housing units in Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria. Israel’s Higher Planning Committee, part of the Defense Ministry’s Civil Administration which manages Area C of Judea and Samaria, granted approval Wednesday and Thursday to nearly 5,000 new housing units for Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria. The decision to issue the permits ended an eight-month de facto freeze on approval for new housing units in Judea and Samaria. (Some of them are still colonising other peoples’ land, but are criticising Jews for taking control of our ancestral land!)
Truce with Hamas does not Work
On Friday night, Israelis living near the Gaza Strip ran for shelter when a rocket exploded harmlessly on open ground. Hamas was reported to have agreed to a six-month truce in its attacks after Qatar approved another cash-for-ceasefire deal, promising the terrorist group ruling the Palestinian enclave another $100 million. (Only by removing all enemy population from Gaza the permanent and real ‘calm’ will come.)
The condition of senior Palestinian Authority official Saeb Erekat, 65, who is ill with coronavirus, has deteriorated in recent hours. The Palestinian Authority has submitted a request to Israel to transfer him for examination from Jericho to urgent care at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. Israel complied with the request and will try to save his life. (They hate Israel and want to destroy it, but expect Jews to help when they are in trouble!)
Members of the Joint Arab List, which consists mostly of Israeli-Arab Members of Knesset, announced they will vote against the ratification of the peace agreements, the Abraham Accords, between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain in the Knesset. The Joint List alleged that the US-formulated Deal of the Century peace plan is “part of a clear plan to eliminate the rights of the Palestinian people. (Aren’t they citizens of Israel? Their loyalty must be questioned!)
Israel’s Civil Administration’s Higher Planning Committee approved 2,166 new housing units in Judea and Samaria, ending an eight-month de facto freeze on approval for new homes.
Knesset member Sami Abu Shehadeh of the Balad faction in the predominantly Arab Joint list said the 15 members of the list oppose the historic accord under which the United Arab Emirates will establish diplomatic ties and normalize relations with Israel. Palestinian leaders had previously rejected the separate peace deals that the UAE and Bahrain decided to sign with Israel, calling the unilateral agreements a “stab in the back.” (Millions of Jews have returned to live to Israel, their ancestral land! Israel-hating Arabs should move and join their brothers in 22 Arab countries!)
The United Nations General Assembly elected China, Russia, Pakistan and Cuba to the organization’s Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the 2021-2023 term, eliciting harsh criticism. The UNHRC is infamously biased against Israel, with nearly half of its resolutions focused solely on the Jewish state, while completely ignoring war, strife and atrocities committed around the world. US Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft said that the election results “validate President Donald Trump’s decision to leave that deeply corrupted body.”
IDF troops crossed into Syrian territory and destroyed two army posts that had been built in the demilitarized buffer zone. The Syrian army positions were built in violation of the ceasefire agreement it signed with Israel in 1974. (As usual, the UN observers did nothing to stop this violation!)
Quote of the Week:
“All the religious rulings that were issued by the nation’s religious scholars obligated fighting against the thieving Jews, and they don’t disagree on banning normalization with the Zionists… The fact that the Muslims cannot – in some of the Islamic lands, or in some of the Arab lands – restore (their lands), doesn’t mean that the ruling has changed. No, the religious ruling is firm, valid and present.” – Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Muhammad Hussein – Israel needs to start implementing the Jewish “religious rulings” – end the enemy occupation of all Jewish lands!
Lesson of the Six-Day War
by Steven Shamrak
“On June 5th, 1967, Jordan attacked Israel. Suburbs of Tel Aviv were shelled by artillery. Israel’s largest military airfield, Ramat David, was shelled. Jordanian warplanes attacked the central Israeli towns of Netanya and Kfar Saba. Thousands of mortar shells rained down on western Jerusalem, targeting Israel’s parliament building and the prime minister’s office. Twenty Israelis died in these attacks; 1,000 were wounded; 900 buildings were damaged. Only after coming under fire and sustaining casualties did the Israeli military respond against Jordanian forces in the West Bank.” (HonestReporting)
“The biggest myth going is that somehow there was not a real and immediate Arab threat, that somehow Israel could have negotiated itself outside the crisis of 1967, and that it wasn’t facing an existential threat, or facing any threat at all,” said Michael Oren. (Jerusalem Post)
Now days, some revisionists of history are trying to turn the glorious victory of Israel against many Arab armies into a failure, calling it a “Hollow Victory” or saying that we are “Paying Price” for Israel’s 1967 Victory. What price would Jews pay if Israel was defeated in any previous war? Like former president of Egypt Gamal Abdel Nasser said: “We only need to win once!”
Hypocrites are attempting to make Israel’s victories look like a source of current problems with PA and most of Muslim world. This approach, to make Jews to feel guilty, is not a new concept. Jews have always been blamed for the faults and problems created by others and Jewish achievements or inventions were brushed off or plagiarized. Our enemies like to see Jews submissive and obedient!
At the same time, we ought to admit that Israel made mistakes during and after the previous wars and there is a need to learn from the lesson from the history:
1. In order to achieve our goals and reduce the number of casualties, Israel must set clear objective and choose her own time of engagement with enemies. And, they must be followed through. We must not wait again and again for their move, while our enemies become stronger, restocking arms and training armies, with clear hostile intention toward Israel.
2. Any outside pressure must be ignored. The only reason why Israel have been experiencing the internal Arab terrorism for the past 40 years is because under international pressure Israel did not allow Arabs from Judea, Samaria and Gaza to cross the border with Jordan and Egypt, and leave Jewish land.
