Abbas: The Face of the Enemy.
Al-Dustur, February 28, 2008. (PMW)
In His Own Words: "At present," Abbas told the Jordanian newspaper A-Dustur, "I am against an armed struggle against Israel because we can't do it, but in the coming stages, things may change." Abbas also said:
"We rejected this proposal [the Jewishness of the state Israel] at the Annapolis conference last November in the USA, and the conference was almost aborted because of it..."
"I was honored to be the one to shoot the first bullet in 1965 [Fatah terror against Israel began in 1965]… We taught everyone what resistance is, including the Hezbollah, who were trained in our camps [i.e. PLO camps in the 60s and 70s]."
"I don't demand that the Hamas movement recognize Israel. I only demanded of the [‘Palestinian’] national unity government that would work opposite Israel in recognition of it. And this I told to Syrian President Bashir Assad, and he supported this idea."
(Who does Israel negotiate with and why? Throughout history, all enemies of the Jewish people, including the Arabs, have not been known for their restraint and civility toward Jews! They have only shown some respect for Israel when the country had dealt decisively with their aggression!)
At least 8 people were killed and many were wounded on Thursday evening when an Arab opened fire in a Jerusalem yeshiva. - The UN Security Council in an urgent meeting failed to condemn the attack. Four or five council members demanded that the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip be mentioned in the statement.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Living in a State of Paranoia: It used to be a norm in Israel to ask and give a ride to strangers, especially Israeli soldiers. Now, after years of ‘Palestinian’ terror and kidnappings, the IDF punishes soldiers who do so.
Another Gutless War not a Hamas ‘Victory’. Hamas held a “victory rally” in Gaza on Monday after IDF forces withdrew from the area, claiming they had defeated Israel in battle. Approximately 20,000 people attended the rally. Senior Hamas terrorist Mahmoud A-Zahar spoke to the crowd and threatened attacks on Israeli cities further from Gaza than those attacked until now. (Do we need another useless Winograd commission? A government which is ready to end Arab terror and occupation of Jewish land by enemies is urgently needed!)
Proof of Insanity or High Level of Hypocrisy. U.S. President George W. Bush said on Tuesday he remains optimistic there will be a peace deal between Israel and the ‘Palestinians’ by the end of his presidency, despite broken-down negotiations. (He was not so ‘optimistic’ about peace with Al-Queda, Afghanistan and Iraq!) US President George W. Bush announced that he would override a congressional ban and transfer $150 million to the PA. (Definitely Hypocrisy! No help for Jewish victims of Arab terror in Sderot.)
Another City under Attack. Missile from Gaza hit Ofakim, a town of 30,000, situated 12-15 km east of Gaza and south of Beersheba. (For how long should Israel suffer? The Sinai Option must be implemented now!)
Quote of the Week:
"We Arabs, especially the educated among us, look with the deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement. Our delegation here in Paris is fully acquainted with the proposals submitted yesterday by the Zionist organization to the Peace Conference, and we regard them as moderate and proper." - Emir Faisal to the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. - This good will toward Jews did not last long. Soon, it was undermined by Pan Arab political ambitions and British and French interests in Arab oil and control of the Suez Canal.
Arab MKs Lead Rock-Throwing Mob. Several thousand Arabs led by Arab nationalist Knesset members participated in a procession through the Israeli city of Umm el-Fahm. The participants held Syrian and PLO flags and chanted "Rest, O martyr, we will complete the task," "Warm blessings to the rock children." (No loyalty to Israel, no sympathy for Sderot’s residents who have been suffering 7 years of rocket attacks from Gaza. This 5th column must also leave Israel!)
Craziness of Self-Hating Junta. Jewish civilian faces arrest after shooting at Arab lynch mob. Ambushed by a mob of dozens or hundreds of rock-throwing Arabs in Samaria, a Jew, who was walking towards a compound in which a Kollel [Torah study hall], fired a warning shot in the air and then killed an attacker.
Weapons Hidden in Mosque. Gaza terrorists hid anti-tank weapons, hand grenades and additional explosive devices in a mosque in Gaza. The weapons and explosives were discovered and confiscated by the IDF.
Suddenly, Pope is Concerned? In a sermon at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI called upon Israel and the ‘Palestinians’ to cease their acts of violence at once and unconditionally. (Don’t you ‘love’ this fake concern? The hypocrites use a ‘balanced’ approach only when Israel starts retaliation, after enduring prolonged Arab terror, during which all of those high ranking international anti-Semites kept silent.)
Hypocrisy of the ‘Loaded’ Headlines:
“New Israeli Gaza incursion overshadows Rice peace push” – This head line was used by several sites and newspapers this week – Persistent rocket attacks from Gaza for the last 7 years, even after the IDF withdrew from Gaza, have nothing to do with ‘overshadowing’ of the bogus peace process?
Dirty War of Words. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said that IDF counter-terrorist operations in Gaza were “worse than the Holocaust.” Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal used similar wording, calling the IDF operations in Gaza “the real Holocaust.” Mashaal also accused Israel of “exaggerating the Holocaust and using it to blackmail the world.” (Who is “exaggerating” what? Lately, Muslim propaganda has been using quite often the word “Holocaust” and other Jewish symbols and ideas of historic Jewish suffering in their rhetoric, in order to camouflage Islamic blood-thirsty terror!)
Arab, Filipino Gangs Clash in Jerusalem. A group of Arab residents of Jerusalem fought with a group of foreign workers from the Philippines week ago. The incident took place on King George Street in downtown Jerusalem. One Arab man was stabbed and lightly to moderately wounded during the clash. (This is another example of ugly and brainless government policies.)
Stop Foreign anti-Israeli Involvement.
MK Meir Porush of United Torah Judaism (UTJ) said Monday that the Foreign Ministry should act to end foreign influence in Israeli politics. Porush mentioned the European Union’s recent condemnation of IDF counter terrorism operations in Gaza: “At this point in time we know of direct and indirect funding that is given to groups such as ‘Peace Now,’ ‘B’Tselem,’ and ‘Gush Shalom’”. Arab Israeli groups that protest against IDF actions are often funded by the EU as well, Porush said. (Europeans continue the Holocaust by proxy, using Arabs and self-hating Jews!)
Senior government sources explained that the government ordered ground troops out of northern Gaza because of the impending visit by American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the Middle East. (Until the Israeli government stops looking for approval from foreign powers and accommodating their political agenda, more Arab terror and security deterioration should be expected!)
