A Palestinian Arab whistleblower handed over hundreds of secret files documenting widespread corruption at the top in the PA and shared them with the Belgian government and the European Union.
The man, Yasser Jadalah, the former head of the political department of the PA, said that money donated to the PA by the European Union and Arab countries disappears in secret bank accounts belonging to the grandchildren of Abbas. (Yasser Arafat did the same!)
The new scandal erupted at the same time that Hamas in Gaza was exposed as a bunch of liars over the narrative that the population in the coastal enclave is starving because of what is falsely portrayed as an Israeli blockade...
To cover up these criminal actions Abbas ordered all office accounts to be destroyed “for security reasons” every six months but in reality, this happens virtually every day...
The Palestinian Authority has been caught previously conducting illicit activities, such as the smuggling of thousands of smartphones. It also continues the controversial practice of paying monthly stipends to terrorists jailed in Israel and to the families of so-called “martyrs” terrorists who died while carrying out terror attacks against Israelis.
It remains to be seen if the EU will act against the PA after receiving the evidence that European taxpayer money is used for enriching Abbas’ family even further...
The organization of European countries (blinded by their traditional Antifeminism) is too much obsessed with supposed Palestinian suffering at the hands of the Israeli military to have a moral compass, learn the true facts and to put an end to the misuse of funds provided by the EU and other countries to the PA...
Then there is Hamas in Gaza that does everything in its power to hold-up the narrative of suffering and poverty due to an alleged Israeli blockade of the enclave in Israel’s south, while in reality, Israel only prevents weapons from entering the area and ensures adequate supplies of all other products...
There is, it seems, another story to tell about the situation in Gaza where Hamas just received $50 million of Qatari aid that is supposed to support poor families. Hamas, however, is controlling the cash hand-outs and in this case as well, money is siphoned off and then diverted to the Izz-a-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Hamas...
Every few weeks a new mall, hotel, restaurant or a fancy clothes store is opened in Gaza where mostly Hamas members are spending time as well as other Palestinian Arabs. (The world – Europeans, Arabs, the US, etc – know about this ongoing corruption and lies, but they do not care! They would do anything to see the demise of the only Jewish state!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Demographic scare-mongering has been used against Jewish Zionist vision of recreating Eretz-Israel for too long! One-state is Jewish state solution – it will work fine, as long as Israel-hating, enemy population will be moved and returned back to countries of their origin!
A new IDF drone unit was inaugurated this week under the 9900 Intelligence Division. The new unit will create a significant improvement in the 9900 Division's ability to provide geo-visual intelligence. Drones can collect accurate and high resolution intelligence in a variety of conditions, and they are relatively cheap and readily available tools.
Anwar Gargash, the United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs, warned that Israel’s planned application of sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria could lead Arab states to call for one-state solution. He added that “ultimately, I personally believe that if we are going where we are going today, and we lose the possibility of really implementing a two-state solution, we will really be talking about equal rights and one state.” (This sounds like a new tune, as Arabs states are adjusting their position toward Israel!)
The European Union has cancelled a grant to a Palestinian non-profit organization after it refused to sign an anti-terrorism clause obliging it to guarantee that none of the funds would be transferred to members of terrorist organizations. The Badil Resource Center for Palestinian Residence and Refugee Rights has obtained more than $1.9 million for a project called "Mobilizing for Justice in Jerusalem," which aims to expose alleged Israeli human rights violations and "international crimes" in the holy city. (This is one small step in the right direction! There are still many to make. The EU has been systematically funding anti-Israel NGOs - Palestinians and Jewish anti-Zionist ones!)
The Finance Ministry announced that it is cancelling its plan to grant a tax exemption on fuel to government-recognized "international aid NGOs" operating in the Palestinian Authority. Likud MK Nir Barkat who also led the opposition to the measure, stated: "Organizations that support terrorism and work against the state will receive fines rather than rewards."
Dozens of Israeli-Arab residents of Haifa issued calls to kidnap IDF soldiers and attack the Shin Bet during an anti-Israel protest. "If these ungrateful protesters hate Israel so much, then they should go move to Syria, Lebanon or Egypt. They won't be missed," said Tom Nisani, head of Im Tirtzu's Arab Desk of a Zionist watchdog group.
The YESHA Council published a "sovereignty map" showing what settlements in Judea and Samaria need, and preventing the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state. The map creates a continuum of sovereignty for the settlements, preventing towns from becoming isolated. it also ensures that all the roads remain under Israeli sovereignty, and allows for future development. "The current map is very dangerous for the State of Israel and for the settlements, and leads to the creation of a Palestinian state," the Council warned.
In 2016, Russia was willing to block former US President Barack Obama's anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations (UN) Security Council. The decision would have forced Israel to create a Palestinian state along the 1948 armistice lines. A year and a half ago, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that he asked "a friend of mine, the leader of a world power (Putin), who has veto rights in the Security Council and who I have a very good relationship with" to oppose the resolution, "and he stopped it."
Arava region in southern Israel – from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea - gets 100% of its daytime electricity from solar power for a whole month. Yes, that includes Eilat, all the hotels, factories, homes, businesses, kibbutzim and air conditioning - 100%! And by 2025, the sun will power all nighttime electricity needs as well.
Quote of the Week:
"It is a real tragedy that Black Lives Matter - which has done so much good in raising awareness of police abuses - has now moved away from its central mission and has declared war against the nation state of the Jewish people. In a recently issued ‘platform’, more than 60 groups that form the core of the Black Lives Matter movement went out of their way to single out one foreign nation to accuse of genocide and apartheid.” - Alan Dershowitz is former Professor of Law, Harvard University - Black Lives Matter was started by Jew-haters and has had anti-Semitism as one of the original items in its manifesto.
Imagine it is America

In 1964 a "Mexican Liberation Organization for Independence of the South-West states of the USA" - MLO - was created with the help of the Mexican Government.
In 1972 the MLO murdered the members of the US wrestling team at the Munich Olympic Games.
Since then, the citizens of the United States have been subjected to random acts of terror by the members of various factions of the MLO.
1993: Mexican and US representatives met in Oslo and signed a breakthrough agreement of mutual recognition between the USA and the MLO Organization, which began the US-Mexican peace process.
The chain of agreements that followed, were facilitated by Israel - Wye River Memorandum, Camp David, summit at Sharm El Sheikh, Tenet Plan, the Road Map.
During all this time the MLO organization continued terrorist activity against the USA and ignored all agreements it had signed.
The UN and EU observed the suicide bombings, kidnappings and homemade rockets fired across the border by the MLO, but financially, politically and morally supported the MLO and the Mexican Government’s struggle against the USA.
Ten months ago, the US government announced its decision to withdraw from New Mexico and transferred full control of the territory to the MLO.
Six months ago, the US government ignored the protest of its people and deported the non-Mexican population from New Mexico, hoping to save lives and reduce the cost of the conflict.
The MLO responded with an escalation of the terror. Katusha rockets landed on the soil of the United States. Suicide bombings and kidnappings never stopped.
A week ago. MLO members used a tunnel to attack a US military border post. Two US soldiers were killed, 4 wounded and one kidnapped.
The MLO made a demand to release Mexican terrorists from US jails.
The US army in order to free the kidnapped solder and punish the MLO entered New Mexico. A Power station, bridges and the Interior ministry building was bombed.
An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman called for restraint and advised that diplomacy is a viable option.
The President of Mexico asked the United Nations for help in freeing the MLO members. The UN special envoy for the Middle East, Alvaro de Soto, says he will discuss the issue with the US government.
The US's four-day military offensive in New Mexico prompted recriminations during a UN Security Council debate sought by Spanish speaking countries.
For how long would the United States tolerate this? At least the Mexican people have a legitimate historical right to claim the south-west of the USA – Arabs and others, who call themselves Palestinians, have none!
Only Israel is denied the right of self-defense by the US governments and other international anti-Semites. The biggest problem is that Israel has been submissive to these pressures! (This article was written 14 years ago, after 8,500 Jews were forcefully transferred by Israeli government from Gaza! I hope you understood the irony!)
