Hamas - Leadership Enrichment

by Abeer Darwish

Hamas (one of many terrorist organizations of the so-called Palestinians) is rife with contradiction: when a truce with Israel was convenient, it reprimanded Islamic Jihad for firing rockets, and while over 70% of Gazans are poor, its leader uses private planes and lives a life of wealth. (Billions of dollars of the foreign aid are pocketed by leaders of Fatah, Hamas… - From Arafat to Abbas and Haniyeh! The longer the conflict is going the richer they become!)

Hamas presents itself as a Palestinian resistance movement against the Israeli occupation. It repeatedly declares its refusal to recognize Israel and has always criticized the Palestine Liberation Organization for signing the Oslo Accords...

Hamas refuses to recognize the Oslo Accords and Israel, but by participating in the 2006 elections, which were mandated by the Oslo Accords, it de facto recognized Israel.

Indeed, Ismail Haniyeh formed the “second reconciliation government,” which maintained security coordination and direct communication with the Israelis...

Both of Haniyeh’s children have turned into wealthy businessmen who hold Turkish passports...

Hamas emerged as a resistance force to the Israeli occupation but came to see the preservation of Palestinian suffering as its only way forward. Hamas leaders talk a lot about Palestinian reconciliation but spend their careers increasing divisions and hatred in Palestinian society. (It is long overdue to remove Hamas, the PLO and all enemies from the Jewish land!)

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Our enemies – most of the Arab states, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, as well as traditional European anti-Semites, and even some residents of the White House - hate to see a sovereign Jewish state in the Middle East. There is only one plausible option for the government of Israel - ignore those Jew-hating bigots and pursue our own Jewish national aspirations!

Yamina party is Gaining on the Likud

Yamina party continuing to gain ground on the Likud, rising to 22 seats, from 21 in the previous poll. Yamina won just six seats in the last election. The Likud, by contrast has continued to fall, nine short of the 36 seats the party currently has. (Jews of Israel have begun to realise that the Likud, under the leadership of Binyamin Netanyahu, is no longer the party which is perusing pursuing the Zionist goals of its founders!)

EU Began Questioning the PA Financing

EU gives the Palestinian Authority an ultimatum, linking aid to tax monies held by Israel. Officials in the European Union have informed the Palestinian Authority leadership there will be no additional financial aid unless the Ramallah government is willing to accept the tax revenues collected on its behalf by the State of Israel. The ultimatum to the Palestinian Authority officials is unprecedented, and an indication that frustration with the Ramallah leadership is growing, even among its most loyal European supporters.

No Funds to Families of Terrorists

Defense Minister signed four orders to seize funds that are paid by Hamas and the PA to terrorists serving prison sentences in Israeli prisons, as well as to the families of terrorists who were killed. Since its creation in 1994, the PA has paid monthly salaries to terrorist prisoners and released prisoners. (Why did it take so long to make the right and obvious decision?)

Quote of the Week:

"The Muslim world’s problem is not in the vineyards of the Judean Hillside, but in the demons fluttering around their own skulls. The Arab Street is angry, but it’s been angry even before it had actual streets. Perpetual anger is not righteous, it’s just plain mental. People who are angry all the time are not in the right; they are out of their minds. For too long the Arab Muslim world has solved all of its problems by blaming them on someone else. This hasn’t resolved a single problem, but it has led to most of the wars fought over the last 50 years." - Daniel Greenfield

Saudi Arabia Campaigning Against the PA

by Baruch Yedid

Saudi Arabia is on a delegitimization campaign against Abbas, the PA!

The Saudi prince Bandar bin Sultan to Al-Arabiya stressed in an interview that “Saudi Arabia must pay attention to its interests and not to those of Palestinian leaders who have transferred their allegiance to Turkey and Iran”...

The Saudi prince said that “the Palestinian leadership has chosen to unite with Iran and Turkey instead of with its traditional allies in the Arab world”...

The prince, one of the architects of the kingdom’s foreign and security policy, estimated that “it will be difficult to solve the Palestinian problem since the current leadership under Abu Mazen cannot be trusted”...

Ben Sultan, who was the Saudi ambassador to the United States, also referred to the “historic failures of the Palestinian leadership, which took Saudi Arabia’s support for granted”...

“Arafat signed the Oslo Accords in 1993, after rejecting previous deals that contained the same terms,” ​​he said...

Sources in the PA Arab street estimate that Saudi Arabia has begun to prepare the atmosphere in the region for a new phase of normalization of relations with Israel as part of new foundations concerning Saudi national security, but many estimate that this severe attack, which they termed a “massacre in broad daylight,” came mainly following Abu Mazen’s appeal to Turkey and the effort for unity with Hamas...
