Lital Shemesh is a dynamic young Israeli journalist who lives in
Tel Aviv. For years she reported on the political situation in
At the end of a three-day seminar in Turkey in which young Israeli and Palestinian future leaders met, Lital was feeling comfortable with her Arab counterparts.
Lital's first shock was when she was told not to use the word "terrorist." "It's offensive," her new Palestinian friends told her. (Everything is offensive to Arabs, but they are not shy to offend everyone, especially Jews!)
"What do you call a person who straps a suicide belt on his waist and goes into a crowded shopping mall in Tel Aviv, intending to kill innocent Israeli civilians?" she asked bluntly. The conversation that ensued was a shocking red flag for her.
Her second shock was that none of the participating young Palestinian future leaders spoke of a two-state solution. "We believe that you have a right to sovereignty and your own state," the Israelis said. "Let's discuss what the borders of that state should be."
There was no answer. The Palestinian participants talked about one state
Some of the Israeli participants were associated with the far-left Meretz or Labor parties, and the
conference gave them new insight into the peace process. "The conference
was sponsored by left-wing organizations," Lital
explained "and they didn't expect to see such results." (Jewish critics of

secret that Muslim dictators and royals fear uncontrollable Islamic insurgency,
which is a threat to their existence, even more than Western democracies,
According to the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) more than 1.5 million people have fled Syria. The agency estimates that nearly 1 million refugees have registered since January. (The government of Israel needs to develop and implement a plan for ending the occupation of Jewish land by enemies. It can be started with Gaza!)
Russia Fears Attacks by Returning Terrorists
Russia estimates that about 200 of its citizens, mostly from Russia’s Muslim North Caucasus, are fighting alongside Syrian rebels and fears that they could carry out militant attacks once they return.
Hamas has begun preparing new school textbooks that teach children about “plans to liberate Palestine and the legitimacy and various forms of resistance (terror against Israel).” Jamal said Abu Hashem, advisor to the Hamas-controlled education ministry. (It is time to start to teach Jewish children in Israel and the diaspora about the religious, historical and national significant of Palestine, Eretz-Israel, for Jewish people and how have we been robbed by Arabs who have been continuously supported by international anti-Semites!)
Housing Minister Uri Ariel expressed hope on Wednesday that Israel will eventually return to Gush Katif, from which it unilaterally withdrew in 2005. (It must be done after Israel cleared Gaza from enemy occupation!)
Early this month, Ann Dismorr, director of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Lebanon, stood in front of cameras holding a map of Israel labeled “Arab Palestine.” Framed in green and black and shoddily printed, the projected Palestinian state is shown surrounded by countries with modern borders: Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.
The al-Yamama company advertises its unorthodox new fast-food smuggling service. It gets tens of orders a week for KFC meals despite having to triple the price to 100 shekels ($30) to cover transportation and smuggling fees. (Receiving lucrative UN ‘salaries’ for several generations, so-called Palestinian refugees can afford it)

In 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain proclaimed there would be “peace in our time” in defense of his disastrous Munich Agreement with Hitler. History testifies that his policy of appeasement and failure to confront the aggressive Nazi barbarians virtually made World War II inevitable.
In August 1993, just 20 years ago, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, strongly pressured by then Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, embarked on what he described as a “gamble for peace” and consummated the Oslo Accords with the Palestine Liberation Organization, an act which bitterly divided the nation.
Passionate debates ensued, but in our desperate yearning for peace, until recently many of us deluded ourselves that we were engaged in an “irreversible” peace process. Some of us even mesmerized ourselves into believing that Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat and his successor, Mahmoud Abbas, were genuine peace partners, despite clear evidence from their own statements that in referring to peace, they did so with forked tongues and their real objective was to end Jewish sovereignty.
