Yom Hazikaron - Memorial Day
(A Christian family from Bethlehem, living in of fear reprisal from the PA, distanced itself from a video made by their daughter, in which she offers a pro-Israel point of view and blames the PA and Muslims for instability, terror and the drop in the Christian population.)
The video, titled “Christy a Palestinian Christian’s plea to Dr. Saeb Erekat,” was posted to YouTube (please watch it!).
Christy Anastas directs questions at Erekat, a senior Palestinian negotiator, and the second, longer segment, shows Anastas giving a presentation in which she talks about life as a Christian in Bethlehem (Systematic ‘Ethnic cleansing’ of Christians conducted by the PA).
Anastas said that Palestinian children are encouraged to violently confront Israel Defense Forces soldiers in order to die as martyrs, and that incentives included payoffs by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and the Palestinian Authority, given to the families of Palestinians that were killed… She also said that “PA government has given 74 million dollars to the families of Martyrs”.
“How many Muslim countries do we have in the world?”
she said. “Why can’t the Jews have one country?” “I believe God has given this
land to the Jews as an everlasting covenant,” she said. Anastas
also expressed her support for the security barrier that separates the

The PA is considering "all options" in response to the suspension of peace talks. However, Chief Negotiator for the PA Saeb Erekat noted that the Hamas deal was more important to the PA than peace, saying "the priority now for the Palestinians is reconciliation and national unity." Erekat further tried to blame Israel for the failure of the talks, saying "Netanyahu's government has been asked for years to choose between peace and settlements and it chose settlements." It is worth noting that a construction freeze was not a condition of the peace talks, although Abbas demanded a three-month freeze on Judea and Samaria construction as a condition for talks to continue, threatening to disband the PA otherwise. (The threat is not a new revelation. The PA has never ended terror attacks against Israel. It sabotaged and provoked suspension of talks in order to achieve its ultimate goal - destruction of Israel!)
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas declared that the new government will
"obey my policy," and would "recognize Israel and reject
violence and terrorism, and recognize international commitments." However
Mahmoud Al-Zahar, a senior official and co-founder of Hamas, had a different
recollection of the unity deal. He said that Hamas will never recognize
Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has offered condolences to the grandchildren of Armenians who were killed by Ottoman soldiers during World WWI. "The incidents of the First World War are our shared pain," Erdogan said. Erdogan's comments were the first overt attempt by a Turkish leader to offer condolences for the killings that some historians consider as the first genocide of the 20th century. Armenia has tried to get Turkey to recognise the killings of up to 1.5m people as genocide. (The genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks in 1915 and more importantly the international indifference to the horror committed by Turkey paved the way for the Holocaust - extermination of over 6 million Jews during WWII - committed by Nazi Germany with eager participation of their helpers, European anti-Semites!)

Terrorists’ Unity Deal Saved Israel from Israel
A candidate in the European elections, Paul Weston, has been arrested after making a speech quoting from a book by Winston Churchill about Islam. He had been reading from Churchill's book “The River War”, written in 1899 while he was a British army officer in Sudan: “Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it… Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.” (Without facing the truth about Islam and the Muslim culture of violence the West is doomed to lose the war on terror!)

A terrorist who murdered 2 Israeli students was recently released from jail as a "goodwill gesture" complained how the "hardships" of life in an Israeli jail prevented him from fully pursuing his hobby of stamp-collecting. Many Israelis have long maintained that conditions for Arab terrorists in jail are far too comfortable and do not provide enough of a deterrent, citing numerous incidents of Palestinian Arabs who have carried out attacks purely in order to receive the perks that Israeli jails afford them, including free higher education.

That blood libel is very widespread among the Arabs, she said. The media in Arab countries present “scientific studies” that claim to show the veracity of that claim. “The Arab populations easily 'buy' those stories because their state media promotes them,” said Nuriel.

accusation that Jews are guilty of “dual loyalty,” putting loyalty to
All these phenomena are experienced by Jews around the world to some extent, with some “strains” of anti-Semitism more dominant in certain areas than others. According to Nuriel, communities must learn to defend themselves, and keep law enforcement abreast of developments.
