PA's Diplomatic Terrorism

Suddenly, again, Israel is seeing threats everywhere. The latest come not from rockets, the Israelis say, but students armed with petitions and Palestinians seeking sanctions against the Israeli soccer team.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his supporters here and in the United States are warning that Israel is unfairly beset on all sides, by old foes and new. Most worrisome of all, they say, are not armed militants but a campaign of “delegitimization” against the Jewish state...

A symbolic but relatively toothless decision this month by the British National Union of Students to support the BDS movement was front-page news in Israel for days. Even more startling for Israelis were comments last week from Stephane Richard, chief executive of the major French telecommunications company Orange, who said he would pull the company out of Israel “tomorrow morning” if he could, suggesting he supported the boycott movement...

PA tried to have Israel suspended from the world soccer organization for its treatment of Palestinian players. The measure was withdrawn in a last-minute compromise, but not before garnering international headlines... Even greater threats are coming, Israelis say, including the looming Palestinian bid to have Israel formally investigated for war crimes by the International Criminal Court at The Hague... (That’s like the Mafia having the police investigated.)

Top PA negotiator Saeb Erekat has said the Palestinians are seeking to “internationalize” the conflict and have their demands met by isolating Israel...

“It is a strategic threat that aspires to be an existential threat,” said former Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren. “It is not about getting a two-state solution... it's about taking us down.”

(There are so many reasons for the Western liberals to start a movement to boycott Arab countries - lack of religious freedom, discrimination of women and ethnic minorities, capital punishment, anti-gay laws, absence of democratic rights etc... But Israel is the only target of their anger. Anti-Semitism is the only explanation! Unfortunately, many self-hating Jews have been quite active in this Jew-hating movement.)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Southern Sudan, Libya and many others exercise a freedom of fighting their enemies, both internal and external, without any restriction or limitation. The difference between them and Israel is that they do not have a close ‘friendship’ with the United States, which never missed an opportunity to stop Israel from achieving its national objectives, and they do not pay attention to idiots in the ‘Ugly Nothing’!

Attacks on Jews always Preceded by Slander

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted at a parallel between calls for a boycott of Israel and the actions of the Nazis against the Jews during the Holocaust. "What was done to the Jewish people at the time, is now done to the Jewish state. We will not accept it," Netanyahu vowed. "In the past anti-Semites boycotted Jewish businesses and today they call for the boycott of the Jewish state, and by the way, only the Jewish state,"

Arabs are Good at Destroying and Burning

Arab arsonists set fire to the Gevaot Forest in the Gush Etzion region of Judea - the incident caps off a three-day consecutive run of rampant fires set to the same exact forest. In response to the repeated arson, Gush Etzion regional council chair Davidi Perl said, "the ongoing situation cannot continue. Arson is a terror attack to all intents and purposes."

There will be no War Crime Probe!

A United Nations group condemned Saudi-led air strikes that killed six people in the Old City of Sanaa, Yemen. The strikes levelled parts of a 3,000-year-old site - the Old City, which UNESCO added to its World Heritage List in 1986, has been inhabited for nearly 3,000 years and has a high density of unique ochre and white, mud-brick, tower houses, labyrinthine souqs, mosques and bathhouses.

Resignation of ‘Dis-Unity’ Government

The PA unity government formed only a year ago has resigned after President Mahmoud Abbas said it was unable to operate in the Gaza Strip. The resignation came after it emerged that the Gaza Strip's rulers Hamas held separate indirect talks with Israel.

This is True National Unity!

Israeli citizens are extremely concerned at the possibility of cyber-attacks against the Jewish state. Over half of Jewish citizens, 53%, are willing to share online activity with gov't for security purposes. Another 37% supported government oversight of social media websites, while 28% agreed that certain websites should be blocked.

Official anti-Semitism in the Louvre

Tel Aviv University art professor Sefy Hendler attempted to book reservations online at the Louvre and Paris’ Sainte-Chapelle, a medieval church, for a group of twelve of his top protégés only to find that neither could accommodate him. Both are public institutions. Perplexed, he reapplied in the name of two fictitious schools, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Florence, for the same time slot he had originally wanted, this time meeting with success.

10 years on - Gush Katif is Terrorists Training Grounds

Among the many attractions available to Palestinian children in the area formerly known as Gush Katif are a theme park, water slides, a zoo - and a Hamas terror camp. Hundreds of teenagers aged 12 and up train there as Hamas shapes the future fighters of its military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades. The teens practice live fire, learn how to read maps and offer first aid, and also practice the kidnapping of IDF soldiers.

Will Coca-Cola Fire its CEO and Boycott the PA?

Zahi Khouri, CEO of Coca-Cola in PA and exclusive holder of the Coca-Cola franchise in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, called for sanctions against the Jewish State and claims Israel stole Palestinian land. (If not, Israelis and Jews must start boycotting this sugar-water, which is poisonous to human beings. Let our enemies drink it!)
