Negotiation or Blackmail by Terror?
Addressing a pro-Fatah rally of more than 100,000 people in the Samaria city of Shechem (Nablus), the PA Mayor Jamal Muhsein threatened: "Whoever thinks that negotiations are the only choice for Fatah is wrong… Jerusalem is the gate to peace as well as the gate to war."
The threat that the PA would "return" to the option of terror is far from a new one. It has been made regularly, at least once a year, since the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993. In a February 27 interview with Jordan's Al-Dustour newspaper, PA leader Mahmoud Abbas was quoted as saying, "At present, I am against an armed struggle against Israel because we can't do it, but in the coming stages, things may change (after they got what they want through negotiation). ...I do not rule out a return to the way of armed struggle against Israel."
This is in line with the Fatah Constitution, which states (Article 19): "Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated." (This enemy of Israel never has intended to live in peace with Jews; the destruction of Israel by negotiation first and terror later is still their goal! It is time for Israel to wake up to this and remove all enemies from Jewish land!)
Partners in Terror Again. Fatah and Hamas leaders have announced an “agreement in principle” (please, wait and see and Hamas leaders have announced an "agreement in principle" (please, wait and see - it is already broken!) that would lead to a joint Fatah-Hamas led government. Hamas is commonly regarded as a terrorist organization. Fatah is not currently regarded as a terrorist organization.
Ceasefire Hamas’s Style. Hamas attacked Ashkelon around midnight on Saturday with the third long-range "improved" Grad rocket since the morning of the Sabbath. One rocket hit the school and broke through the fortifications designed to protect students and teachers from an attack.
Why Should Israel Care? U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has expressed anger over the past week at what she said were obstacles placed by Israel that slowed down the delivery of aid to Gaza. (Over 100 rockets have slammed into Israeli civilian areas during the past several weeks. Madam Clinton is not angry about these and quite happy to provide US funds for terrorists so they can buy more rockets that terrorise Jews in Israel!) A top Hamas official, Mahmoud Zahar, has declared that the terrorist group will continue to smuggle weapons into Gaza, despite international protests. "It's our right to bring in everything money and arms," "We will not give anyone any commitment on this subject."
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
The United States is trillions of dollars in debt! Millions of Americans have no healthcare or even shelter and even food. Many can’t afford to educate their children. And yet Obama’s government is planning to give more than $900 million to help rebuild Gaza. Well done Mr Obama! Why are US taxpayers’ dollars used to support this terror infested fake Palestinian nation, which is also enemy of America? Why do American ‘patriots’ not protest about this gift to their enemies?
Stupidity Unlimited. EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana said that the funds allocated for the reconstruction of Gaza Strip would be transferred to the PA, run by Mahmoud Abbas. (Gaza run by Hamas? Fatah and Hamas hate each other? Reconstruction in Gaza will be controlled by corrupt Fatah! Does it make sense?)
PA Leads in Anti-American Sentiment. A poll released by the World Public Opinion polling group showed the Palestinian Authority leading several other Arab and Muslim countries in hatred for the United States, belief that the United States is battling Islam and support for attacks on American civilians. Among the findings: A full 88 percent of PA Arabs said spreading Christianity in the Middle East was “definitely” or “probably” one of the United States' foreign policy goals. Eighty-nine percent of PA respondents said the US was “definitely” or “probably” trying to control Middle East oil resources. Forty-nine percent said the US “purposely tries to humiliate the Islamic world.” Sixty-seven percent of PA Arabs said they strongly approve of attacks on US troops in Iraq, and 23 percent said they somewhat approve, while 53 percent said they supported some terrorist groups that attack US citizens and 30 percent said they approve of “most or all” such groups. (Is that why President Obama has pledged an extra $900 million to rebuild Gaza?)
Read Carefully before Criticizing Lieberman. Yisrael Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman’s the creation of a ‘Palestinian state’ was ill-received in the nationalist camp, with some accusing Lieberman of deserting his former positions on the subject and carrying out an about-face. Please, Read Closely before Protesting: Lieberman said: “I also advocate the creation of a viable Palestinian state.” (not necessarily on Jewish land) "We do not ask Israeli Arabs to share in the Zionist dream, (they may leave)” “We are asking them to accept that Israel is a Jewish state, the only one in the world.”
No Ceasefire for Tamil Tigers. Tamil Tigers' political chief Balasingham Nadesan wrote to the United Nations, as well as Britain, Japan, Norway and the United States, saying: "We are ready to discuss, co-operate, and work together in all their efforts to bring an immediate ceasefire and work towards a political settlement." The Sri Lankan Government insists the rebels must surrender unconditionally. (No demands from the UN, US or EU on the Sri Lankan government to stop the offensive and negotiate a ceasefire. May be Israel should adopt the Sri Lankan attitude and say “get lost” to all those ‘well-wishers’!)
Egypt an anti-Semitic ‘Friend’ of Israel. The Egyptian TV station A-Nas broadcast a speech from cleric Ahmed Abd As-Salam, who accused Jews of corrupting Islam, creating sexual temptation and giving Muslims cancer: “The Jews conspire to infect the food of the Muslims with cancer.” (I believe this kind of consistent anti-Semitic and anti-Israel slander is a violation of the Camp David agreement by Egypt. It is time for Israel to take Sinai back and create a ‘Palestinian state over there!)
Quote of the Week: "The place for Israeli Arabs to exercise their national aspirations is a future Palestinian state - not Israel, which is the Jewish national home." "No single Palestinian refugee will be admitted to Israel" "those (Arabs) who wished to realize their national aspirations should look elsewhere," - Tzipi Livni (Kadima) – This will never be accepted by any enemy of Israel! Why are we still playing this two-states solution charade? Sinai is the best “elsewhere” place for any so-called Palestinian state! It seems that, after all, Tzipi is actually not too far from the Jewish ‘radicals’!
Leftist Media Brainwashing Israelis. Israel's Educational TV channel gives viewers a lopsided leftist view and campaigned against Operation Cast Lead between December 12 and January 9 Among 66 discussions and 98 interviews, 21 public and professional figures with a known leftist background appeared on Educational TV compared with only five people with nationalist views.
Jewish Know-How in Fight Against AIDS. Sir Roger Moore, the British-born star of seven , will donate the fee he earns from appearing at the fourth International Eilat Chamber Music Festival to a UNICEF program where Israeli expertise is used in training doctors to perform male circumcision as a way of reducing AIDS transmission in Africa.
More Brainless Apologies. Olmert recently told the Israeli Cabinet that the “siege” in Gaza causes anti-Semitism. He implied that a Jewish presence in Yesha also breeds anti-Israel hatred. (He, like all of his ‘comrades’, is still blind and afraid to admit that unwillingness to act against Islamic terror [be it Hamas, Fatah or Hisbolah] had again created the perception that Jews are weak. That is the reason why international anti-Semitism has skyrocketed since Oslo agreement! And why did he apologise to the Vatican for a TV comedy show? The Vatican is in no rush to apologise for the Inquisition, pogroms, the Holocaust and its denial – the case of Bishop Richard Williamson being the most recent example!)
Rush of ‘anti-Semitic’ Generosity. The European Union's executive office said it will give 436 million euros ($556 million) in aid to the ‘Palestinians’ in 2009, including support for rebuilding Gaza. Donor countries pledged a total of $7.7 billion to the Palestinians in late 2007. The EU gave $620 million to the government of President Mahmoud Abbas in 2008.
Free Speech in Israel No More! A Jerusalem judge has handed down a conviction against Neria Ofan, a pro-Land of Israel activist from Shomron (Samaria), for driving a car with bumper sticker “No Arabs – No Terror.” The slogan was coined by Jewish patriots after the start of the massive terror wave which swept Israel from late September 2000 onwards.
Press Caught with Pants Down!
Interview was conducted by British Sky News presenter Mark Longhurst.
Longhurst: "How come so many more Palestinians have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" (A nasty and heavily loaded question, if there ever was one!)
Netanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?"
Longhurst: Why not? (Falling into the trap)
Netanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind, that the war was caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the German blitz on London, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps you have another question?" (But not a single bomb was dropped on any gas chamber or bridge leading to concentration camps where Jews were killed!)
