Confession of ‘Palestinian’ Non-Existence!
According to Mahmoud Abbas
In a scathing speech to the PLO Central Council on June 20th, 2007, PA President Mahmoud Abbas harshly condemned the brutal actions of Hamas during its takeover of Gaza and accused the Hamas leadership of plotting to assassinate him. During the speech he tally the crimes perpetrated by Hamas:
"The putschists attacked the headquarters of the National Security [Forces], General Intelligence, the Preventive Security [apparatus], and the Presidential Guard, and perpetrated horrors that are totally alien to our [Palestinian] heritage and tradition (quite an opposite) - murdering, executing people on the street, throwing fighters from tall buildings, and looting security headquarters, public facilities and Christian houses of worship.
"[Indeed,] even the churches were not spared. One of the oldest churches in Palestine, which stood long before our arrival [in the region], was looted and set on fire. There are Christians among us, and they are our brothers, and now we discover that [according to Hamas] they are enemies and must leave [Palestine]?!
Mahmoud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, in a moment of anger, unintentionally admits that the Arabs now known as "Palestinians" are actual occupiers of the Jewish land. He shattered (in eyes of normal and intelligent people, who can read and analyze information) the years of propaganda that the Palestinians are the original indigenous population of the region. (I doubt that this revelation will change the anti-Israel attitude of international anti-Semitic demagogues. They have never needed a reason to hate Jews. At the same time, I sincerely hope that self-doubting Jews and the Jews who put the needs of others before their own will shift their opinions toward the original Zionism and start supporting the creation of Eretz-Israel on all Jewish land!)
Al Qaeda orders chief of its Palestinian wing not to free BBC reporter Alan Johnston or negotiate release of Israeli soldier Gilead Shalit. - The order appeared in an official al Qaeda Web site early on Tuesday, June 19. - Blood-thirsty Islamists are playing mind games with the lives and emotions of the “Infidels”. Unfortunately and most likely, they have no one alive to release. Hamas kidnapped over a year ago and claims that it is still holding IDF soldier Gilad Shalit as a hostage!
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
If the modern Zionist leadership, in Israel and Diaspora, does not believe in Eretz-Israel – land of Israel, why have they taken positions and how can they, with a clear consciences, represent the interests of Jewish people?
Political Treachery and Absence of Media Integrity. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice twice referred to Hamas as a "resistance movement" during a meeting with reporters from the New York Daily News earlier this month during unscripted chats with journalists, but the newspaper did not report her remarks. (The Hamas charter calls for the murder of Jews. What would the US reaction be if the Israeli foreign minister called Al Qaida, the perpetrator of 9/11 attack, an “Arab national movement”?)
Short-Lived Muslim Political Hypocrisy. 1. Saudi Arabia will not repeat its efforts to mediate between warring Arab Palestinian factions after a Saudi-brokered unity government fell apart this month Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said: "The kingdom played its part at the right time and so it will not return to the same effort." 2. Egypt suddenly decided to lift its anti-Hamas blockade of Gaza, a day after condemning Hamas Gaza takeover. Mubarak’s astonishing U-turn renders pretty pointless the conference in Sharm al Sheikh Monday, June 25th, which discussed the Hamas takeover in Gaza.
Jester makes ‘Goodwill Gestures’. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said last Monday that he was ready to free about 250 Arab Palestinian prisoners (members of Fatah) as a goodwill gesture to help President Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah faction. Abbas, as usual, offered nothing! (How many ‘goodwill gestures’ have the Arabs made toward Israel in order to promote peace? When will the Israel’s leadership attain self-disrespect?) Exactly one year ago Olmert would not agree to freeing Arab prisoners in exchange for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. (But releasing terrorists to support pretence of negotiation with Fatah is ‘another matter’!)
Abbas Demands More – Offers Nothing. While Prime Minister Ehud Olmert does not rule out transferring military equipment, PA officials demand more: "We want thousands of rifles, hundreds of armoured vehicles and a lot of ammunition," "We will also ask Israel to remove most of the checkpoints…" There is also demand that the IDF to stop pursuing Fatah gunmen and to refrain in the future from raiding PA controlled cities and villages in the West Bank.
Brazil to Resettle Iraq Refugees. About 100 Arab Palestinians who fled Iraq more than three years ago will be resettled in Brazil. War in Iraq has caused as many as 1.5 million people to flee to other countries. (But none of 60 Muslim countries wants so-called Palestinians. So much for brotherly love for ‘Palestinians’!)
‘Brotherly Love and Care’. Mahmoud Abbas ordered the closure of the West Bank to Gaza refugees, including his own Fatah and presidential guard members, except for PA’s VIPs and their families, who were evacuated from Gaza to Ramallah. Egypt has increased its security forces on Gaza’s southern border to seal it against refugees. Most of the injured and sick have been evacuated to Israeli hospitals.
Quote of the Week:
"We will have the support and the involvement of the United States of America, whose leader George W. Bush, wants to realise while he is in office, the dream of creating a Palestinian state, which lives alongside the state of Israel in peace and security." – Israeli PM Ehud Olmert. – Who cares about the egocentric dreams of president Bush and his ‘mark’ on history! What about the 2000 year-old dream of the Jewish people about Eretz-Israel – The G-d given land of our ancestors?
Another Low for Israel and US. Israel would release convicted murderer, terror group founder and alleged planner of the second Palestinian intifada Marwan Barghouti if the U.S. grants clemency to Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, according to a report in Israel's Maariv newspaper.
Aid Money Bought Weapons. According to Hamas chief Mahmoud A-Zahar, Hamas has plenty of weapons – which were purchased over the past several years using aid money given by the West, as well as tax money forwarded to the Palestinian Authority by Israel. A-Zahar said in an interview in a German magazine, those concerns that the money was needed to prevent starvation and health crises were just ruses to get the money the PA wanted to buy more weapons. (Another case of “I told you so!” For how long are we going to ignore the reality and assist terrorists by believing in their obvious lies?)
Corrupt Leadership Produces Corrupt Policies. Ariel Sharon's son and Disengagement from Gaza facilitator Omri Sharon will enter prison next month for a seven-month term for election crimes. Omri activated fictitious associations to help his father beat Ehud Olmert in the Likud primaries of 1999.
Penalty for Egypt. The US House of Representatives voted on Friday to withhold $200 million in US military aid to Egypt due to Egyptian failure to prevent weapons-smuggling into Gaza and ongoing human-rights violations. The bill also explicitly bars the government from passing funds to Hamas. (Since the Oslo agreement, the US has invested around $3.5 billion a year in aid to Egypt. As a result the US gained a fake ally who has done nothing to promote peace with Israel!)
Cynical Game with Words. "Ahmadinejad is not interested in annihilating the Jews who live in occupied Palestine," said Mussawian, aide Iranian President. "What he wants to see is a change of the Zionist regime, just as all Muslims want a change in the Zionist regime and having it turn into a Palestinian regime." (60 Muslim countries are not enough!)
Idiotic Leadership on Both Sides! Speaking with Israeli reporters in Washington, Netanyahu said that Jordan should dispatch its Palestinian force, "The Badr Brigade, which is Jordanian-Palestinian, can create law and order" to assist Abu Mazen in maintaining law and order in Judea and Samaria. "We need Egyptian and Jordanian involvement," Netanyahu said. (The same was said when thousands of Fatah terrorists were allowed to enter Judea, Samaria and Gaza after the Oslo agreement. Did it stop terror? When will this stupidity and lack of self-determination end? When will the Israeli voters elect true Zionists into government?)
Olmert’s Crazy Plan.
According to the plan, Israel would remove dozens of checkpoints in Judea and Samaria, cooperate with a United States plan to arm Fatah (again), avoid targeting Fatah terrorists (giving them a freedom to kill Jews), and transfer millions of dollars of taxes (to buy more weapons, bullets and make rockets) directly to the PA. “Women in Green”, an organization dedicated to advocating for Israel’s safety, called the plan “an existential threat” and warned that Olmert’s government was “grasping the straw of gestures to the PA... at the expense of the blood of hundreds of Israelis.”
Robert Malley and Aaron David Miller (Washington Post)
Gaza is dead, long live the West Bank. It is premised on the notion that Fatah controls the West Bank. Yet Fatah has ceased to exist as an ideologically or organizationally coherent movement. Behind the brand name lie a multitude of offshoots, fiefdoms and personal interests. Most recent attacks against Israel were launched by the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the (pretending to be) unruly Fatah-affiliated militias, notwithstanding Abbas' repeated (fake) calls for them to stop. Given this, why would Israel agree to measurably loosen security restrictions? We should not be fooled by Abbas' rhetoric. Sooner or later he will be forced (if he lives so long) to pursue new power-sharing arrangements between Hamas and Fatah and restore unity among (Arabs) Palestinians.
