Fakeness of Peace Process is Exposed Again

The PA envoy to the UN, Riyad Mansour, said the Palestinians are working on three separate tracks - restarting negotiations, completing the institutions for an independent state and gaining additional recognition for a Palestinian state. "If we succeed in opening the door for negotiations, we're not going to stop from attaining what belongs to us as Palestinians in this General Assembly starting on Sept. 20," Mansour told reporters after the Security Council's monthly meeting on the Mideast. "Whether we succeed in the negotiations or we don't, the other two tracks are continuing." (This statement contradicts the long forgotten ‘spirit of Oslo’! It is time for Israel to open a Jewish “track” – to remove all enemies from Jewish land and to establish peace in Eretz-Israel. Our enemies have never had any intention to establish peace with Jews!)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Why is there a PA representative of the fake nation in the UN, but there are no representatives for Tibet, the Basques people occupied by France and Spain, of up to 35 millions of people of Kurdistan whose land is occupied by five Muslim countries, and Turkish Armenians who suffered genocide committed by the Turkish government in 1915, which has still not been condemned by ‘Useless Nothing’? Anti-Semitic Ugly Nazi (UN) must be disassembled! It has only facilitated genocides, like in Rwanda, and fosters apathy and corruption!

It is an Election Season - Words Mean Nothing

Seeking to reassure Jewish donors amid questions over his support for Israel, President Barack Obama pledged that his administration would "devote all of its creative powers" to trying to bring about Mideast peace. Obama tried to encourage supporters to remember the excitement and promise of 2008 even if he's no longer a fresh face and "people make fun of hope and change" (Change that has never come. His strategy for Mideast peace is pressuring Israel to surrender more of the Jewish homeland!)

Barak is still Delusional and Dangerous for Israel

The Israeli defence minister said, during talks with the French foreign and defence ministers, that despite the upheaval in the Arab world from pro-democracy uprisings, Israel should push forward with negotiations. He said this while disregarding concerns in Israel that the new governments that emerge in the region might be more hostile to the Jewish state than their predecessors.

Not News for Media Bigots

Israel has authorised construction of 1,200 new homes in the Gaza Strip, in what would be one of the largest housing projects in the troubled seaside territory in years. (International press did not care much about this news)

Britain's Ugly Past - Yet to Ask Forgiveness

17 Jews whose bodies were found at the bottom of a medieval well in England were likely victims of persecution. The skeletons date back to the 12th or 13th centuries, at a time when Jewish people were known to having faced persecution throughout Europe. Seven of the skeletons were successfully tested and five of them had a DNA sequence suggesting they were likely to be members of a single Jewish family.

It is Legal to Criticise Islam Now

A court has acquitted the right-wing politician Geert Wilders of hate speech charges. It ruled that his anti-Islam statements always fell within the bounds of legitimate political debate. Judge Marcel van Oosten said that Mr. Wilders's claims that Islam was violent by nature and his calls for a ban on Muslim immigration and the Koran must be seen in a wider context of debate over immigration policy. “It is not only victory for me but a victory for freedom of speech. It means it is legal to criticise Islam” Geert Wilders said outside of the court.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

The three scientists who planned, designed, built and operated Iran's first nuclear reactor at Bushehr died Tuesday night, June 20, when a Rusaero flight from Moscow crashed at Petrozavodsk in northwest Russia.

Quote of the Week:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie." - Goebbels, minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany - The second sentence is less known, but even more important! Many governments had been using this principle!

Truth about Partition Plan

by Eli E. Hertz

In 1947 the British put the future of western Palestine into the hands of the United Nations, the successor organisation to the League of Nations which had established the "Mandate for Palestine." A UN Commission recommended partitioning what was left of the original Mandate - western Palestine - into two new states, one Jewish and one Arab.

What resulted was Resolution 181 (known as the 1947 Partition Plan), a non-binding recommendation to partition Palestine, whose implementation hinged on acceptance by both parties - Arabs and Jews.

The resolution recognised the need for an immediate Jewish statehood (and a parallel Arab state), but this 'blueprint' for peace became a moot issue when the Arabs refused to accept it. Subsequently, de facto (realities) on the ground in the wake of Arab aggression (and Israel's survival) became the basis for UN efforts to bring peace. Resolution 181 then lost its validity and relevance.

Aware of Arabs' past aggression, Resolution 181, in paragraph C, calls on the Security Council to: "Determine as a threat to the peace, breach of the peace or act of aggression, in accordance with Article 39 of the Charter, any attempt to alter by force the settlement envisaged by this resolution."

The ones who sought to alter by force the settlement envisioned in Resolution 181 were the Arabs who threatened bloodshed if the United Nations was to adopt the Resolution: "The (British) Government of Palestine fear that strife in Palestine will be greatly intensified when the Mandate is terminated, and that the international status of the United Nations Commission will mean little or nothing to the Arabs in Palestine, to whom the killing of Jews now transcends all other considerations. Thus, the Commission will be faced with the problem of how to avert certain bloodshed on a very much wider scale than prevails at present…

The Arabs have made it quite clear and have told the Palestine government that they do not propose to co-operate or to assist the Commission, and that, far from it, they propose to attack and impede its work in every possible way. We have no reason to suppose that they do not mean what they say."

The UN Palestine Commission's February 16, 1948 report (A/AC.21/9) to the Security Council noted that Arab-led hostilities were an effort:

"To prevent the implementation of the (General) Assembly's plan of partition, and to thwart its objectives by threats and acts of violence, including armed incursions into Palestinian territory" (which shows that Arab Palestinian territory referred to Jewish land in Palestine).

By the time armistice agreements were reached in 1949 between Israel and its immediate Arab neighbors (Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Trans-Jordan) with the assistance of UN Mediator Dr. Ralph Bunche, Resolution 181 had become irrelevant, and the armistice agreements addressed new realities created by the war. Over subsequent years, the UN simply abandoned the recommendations of Resolution 181, as its ideas were drained of all relevance by events. Moreover, the Arabs continued to reject 181 after the war when they themselves controlled the West Bank (1948-1967) which Jordan invaded in the course of the war and annexed illegally…

There were 6,000 Israelis dead as a result of that war, out of  a population of 600,000. One percent of the Jewish population was gone. In American terms, the equivalent to more than 3 million American civilians and soldiers killed over an 18-month period. Both (so-called) Palestinians and their Arab brethren in neighbouring countries rendered the plan null and void by their own subsequent aggressive actions (and rejecting the resolution in the first place. Therefore, they have no legal ground, according to international law, to claim Jewish land!)
