PA is Always Taker, Never Giver

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Saturday that he does not view Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as a partner for peace, noting that he does not believe peace will happen in his generation.

"I've discovered this conflict is about the entire Palestine, they don't recognize our right to exist here... it is impossible to make an agreement without there being recognition on the other side of our right to exist as the national homeland of the Jewish people." "Abu Mazen (Abbas) is a partner that receives but not a partner that gives. He's not a partner for a final accord that ends with the recognition of the State of Israel," Ya'alon said.

The issue of Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state has lately overshadowed other stumbling blocks over borders, refugees and the status of Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was the first Israeli Prime Minister to make recognizing Israel as a "Jewish" state a central issue of peace negotiations, calling it the root of the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis.

Is this Another Empty Warning from Israel?

Israel told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas it might not carry out a final stage of a PA prisoner release  unless he commits to prolonging peace talks beyond an April deadline for a deal. Israel has freed more than 70 of those prisoners since the negotiations resumed in July. But the talks have made little progress. (At the same time Abbas vows to release all PA terrorists from Israel’s prisons, saying no to a so-called PA state without the Jordan Valley and East Jerusalem. Conclusion: Israel must not release those killers. And, negotiation with the illegitimate and unconstitutional leader, Abbas, is useless!)

Abbas had the Confidence of Obama

Unlike in his State of the Union address, Obama made no mention of Israel’s Jewish character in his remarks with the PA premier last week. Just two weeks prior, Obama hosted Netanyahu in his office for a briefing on the talks. At that time, the Israeli leader publicly declared that Abbas had not done his part in preparing the Palestinian people for a peace accord that recognized two states for two peoples. Obama pushed back against that notion during Abbas’s visit: “He has been somebody who has consistently renounced violence,” Obama said, sitting next to him in front of a pool of cameras, and noted that Abbas had the confidence of his administration as a leader in pursuit of lasting peace. (Can Israel have the confidence in Obama?)

Has Obama Unmasked Abbas?

Palestinian rejection of the current US framework paper may signal the end of the Palestinian statehood project for the foreseeable future. The March 17 meeting between US President Barack Obama and PA President Mahmoud Abbas revealed little new information. There was no breakthrough. Abbas is exposed on three issues in the American paper; long-term IDF active presence in the Jordan Valley, an undivided Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. Abbas will not budge on the principle of mutual recognition; as he said repeatedly, “We will never sign an agreement recognizing Israel as a Jewish state.”

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Israel has much to learn from Russia how to plan and expedite, when opportunity presented itself, reunification of national land and how to ignore useless ‘outrage’ of international hypocrites. Judea, Samaria and Gaza are, historically and legally, Jewish ancestral land - regardless of the shift in public opinion which anti-Semitic propaganda has quite successfully achieved during years of the ‘media war’ assault on Israel.

Why did Visit to Holy Site by a Jew Spark Riots?

Hundreds of young Arabs gathered Thursday morning at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to protest the visit of Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin (Likud). Rioters hurled stones towards the lawmaker and policemen guarding the area. During the volatile discussion, MK Feiglin said: "Astonishingly, this is the first time the Israeli Knesset debates the question of the Temple Mount sovereignty in the plenum. Every terror organization can wave its flag there. But an Israeli flag? …I call on the government to realize the full sovereignty of the State of Israel on the entire Temple Mount. I call on the Israeli government to allow free access to every Jew to the Temple Mount from every gate, in order to pray on the site"

‘Poor Palestinians’ - There Are Only 1,700 Millionaires in Gaza

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction went on the offensive, claiming that Hamas in Gaza is corrupt and "doesn't represent the Palestinian people." The Fatah spokesman claimed that while Gaza is one of the poorest places in the world, there are 1,700 millionaires among Hamas members, hinting that the terror group imposes steep taxes on its citizens for goods entering from Egypt and Israel. (Now, thanks to mutual hate between Fatah and Hamas, the world knows the truth about ‘poor Palestinians’ but will ignore it anyway!)

Award for National Betrayal?

The US Senate unanimously passed a bill to award President Shimon Peres with the Congressional Gold Medal, the US‘s highest civilian awards. (Why would a foreign power bestow such a high honor on a corrupt, self-serving person who has been continuously undermining national aspirations of his own country and people - reunification of Jewish ancestral land?) 

Peres is still Delusional Idiot, at best

President Shimon Peres said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is a "true partner for peace." Peres added: "We must continue working with the Palestinian Authority and Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas). He is a good partner and I am glad our government is negotiating with him…”

True Intention of Our Enemies

Senior Palestinian official Abbas Zaki said in an interview broadcast yesterday on official PA TV that Israelis "have no belief, no principles" and that they "are an advanced instrument of evil." Therefore, "Allah will gather them so that we can kill them." (Abbas Zaki is a senior official in Fatah. He is currently a member of the Fatah Central Committee and is the former PLO Ambassador in Lebanon. He remains a close associate of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.)

Obama Advancing Islamisation of the United States

By executive order, President Barrack Hussein Obama is allowing 80,000 Muslims to immigrate next year to the United States. For a president who browbeats Americans about the Federal government having separation of church and state he sure is advocating one religion consistently over all the others. First it was that we had no choice but to build the mosque at Ground Zero in New York, now it is that a certain ethnic segment is getting preferential treatment over all other Americans.

Egypt Arrested Lover of Israel

A 24-year-old Egyptian has been arrested by authorities for allegedly committing the crime of “loving Israel.” Media outlets in Egypt have given the “suspect” the moniker “Israel lover,” after he was spotted with a tattoo of the Star of David on his arm. While Israel and Egypt have had full diplomatic relations for 35 years, civilian contacts between Egyptians and Israelis are considered taboo in Egypt, the largest Arab country in the Middle East. (So much for a friendly neighbour!)

Possible Unilateral Strike on Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon have ordered the military to continue preparations for a possible strike on Iran's nuclear facilities during 2014. Netanyahu, who has stated repeatedly that Israel must be able to defend itself, has clarified that the Jewish state is not bound by the interim accord: "I believe that letting Iran enrich uranium would open up the floodgates. We will make sure it does not happen." (Iran is a strategic ally of Russia! In a light of recent successful annexation of Crimea by Russia, it would be good for the restoration of the US image as a super-power to use this opportunity and join Israel in this endeavour, the strike on Iran.)

Time to Expel ‘Democratic’ Islamic Turkey from NATO

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to shut down Twitter and other social media platforms last Friday. Hours later, the government had shut down access to Twitter in most parts of the country. Turkey's leader has been under mounting pressure after audio recordings allegedly showed his involvement in corruption, and others portraying him interfering in business deals, court cases and media coverage. “We’ll eradicate Twitter. I don’t care what the international community says,” Erdoğan said. (“With the friend like this…!”)

Quote of the Week:

“After studying the pronouncements and policies of Labor and Likud Governments since 1976, I have come to the serious and dismal conclusion that if the Labor Party represents ‘organized treachery.’ The Likud Party represents ‘organized hypocrisy.’ I have yet to decide which has been more damaging to the State of Israel.” -  Dr. Paul Eidelberg - It is imperative that Israel and Jewish communities regain national pride and become true Zionists. Otherwise, we are facing the danger of extinction from the modern, well orchestrated, wave of anti-Semitism instigated by both Christian and Muslim ‘friends’. We need decent political and spiritual leadership!

Syrian Rebels are Saudi (Wahhabi) Proxy

by Aaron Klein

Due to the political upheaval in Ukraine and Russia’s hosting of the Olympics this month, there has been a feeling among opposition that it can score important points on the ground.

Saudi Arabia in recent days has massively stepped up its support for the jihadists fighting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Saudis have been pumping large quantities of advanced weapons to the so-called rebels, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles.

The newly armed opposition has already hit two Syrian military helicopters, one near the Golan Heights and the other outside Damascus. The successful implementation of the anti-aircraft missiles has prompted the Syrian military to rely more on Syrian aircraft, with some Syrian warplanes flying close to the Israeli border for the first time since 1974. (Weapons that are so eagerly sold to the Saudis by the United States are now in the hands of jihadi terrorists. Many of them, upto 9,000 - already “radicalised”, came from Western countries to gain  proper training and experience in order to bring terror back home. It makes US administration a friend of the jihadists!)
