Palestinians living in Iraq were recently stripped of the equal-rights status they had enjoyed under Saddam Hussein. Now, the Palestinians are complaining that they are being targeted by the Iraqi authorities and various militias.
Their complaints, however, seem to have been ignored by the international community, including Western activists and human rights organizations that describe themselves as “pro-Palestinian.”
No one in the international community cares about Palestinians when they are targeted by their Arab brothers.
The United Nations, European Union and various human rights organizations pay attention to the Palestinians only when they find a way to hold Israel responsible for their “suffering.”
The number of Palestinians in Iraq has dropped from more than 40,000 before 2003 to fewer than 6,000 today...
More than 4,000 Palestinians have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the civil war there in 2011. Palestinians in Lebanon are banned from working in about 70 professions, such as medicine, law and engineering, or joining any professional association. No one cares about these Palestinians because they are being killed and denied jobs by their own Arab brothers. Palestinians are victims not only of their Arab brothers, but also of the double standards of the international community, which continues to be obsessed only with Israel.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Population transfer is a legitimate approach for conflict resolution! In 1922 two guys received the Nobel Prize for this idea, after almost 2 million were transferred b/w Greece and Turkey. In 1947 12 million were transferred b/w India and Pakistan. In 1949 the 4th Geneva Convention was adopted to stop Israel from doing the same to the hostile Arab population, which was left in Israel after the War of Independence. Since then only Israel is forced to abide by it! Israel needs a self-respectful leadership with determination to end the conflict, and remove so-called Palestinians from Jewish land!
Israel, Greece, and Cyprus signed a historic agreement for the Eastern Mediterranean project that will see Israeli gas delivered to Europe via an undersea pipeline, overturning Turkey’s efforts to thwart the deal. Turkey occupies the northern part of the island and is already facing sanctions by the EU for drilling off the coast of Cyprus.
Over 130 “Palestinian NGOs” have refused to sign a grant request from the European Union (EU) which stipulates that beneficiaries must refrain from transferring any aid from the EU to terrorist groups. “These restrictions directly affect the Palestinian rights under international law, and in particular the right to self-determination. They are not in line with the European Union’s commitment to a two-state solution, peace and stability in the region,” Erekat said. (Look who is talking about "peace and stability"! Terror against Jews is an intrinsic part of the PA and its anti-Semitic supporters.)
Israel's Supreme Court declined to weigh in on whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can return to his post now that he has been indicted, postponing any ruling on his political future until after March elections. (For years PM Netanyahu and his wife have been 'investigated' for multiple 'crimes', as Sharon before them, but never brought to court. Political legal criminality of the Israel's Supreme Court must be investigated and abolished!)
A Lithuanian parliament committee is drafting legislation declaring that neither the Baltic nation nor its leaders participated in the Holocaust. 95 percent of about 250,000 Jews who had lived in Lithuania were murdered when the Nazis invaded in 1941. (Poland did it first, now Lithuania. Why would they need the legislation to absolve their country from participation in the Holocaust? Bulgaria and Denmark do not need it!)
Over 30,400 Jewish worshipers visited the Temple Mount during 2019, setting a new record for the number of Jewish visitors ascending to the holy site in one year. These numbers include only Jews who came to pray or show a Jewish presence at the holy site and not groups of Israeli tourists.
Members of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement were seen last Tuesday marching in the streets of Ramallah while wearing explosive belts, as the movement celebrated the 55th anniversary of its founding. (The legend of a Palestinian nation was fabricated, with the help from KGB. in 1964!)
The High Court of Justice issued a ruling on Monday that would require the top legal body’s approval each time Israeli municipalities in Judea and Samaria seek to transfer funds to private organizations that build settlements and outposts. The ruling came after a February petition from the (self-haters of) settlement watchdog Peace Now!
An internal Hamas document reveals its alleged involvement in the IDF’s assassination of senior Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Atta in the Gaza Strip in November and exposes the ongoing power struggle between the various Gaza factions.
The Blue and White party recently asked the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum to allow its leader, Benny Gantz, to speak at an upcoming conference on combating anti-Semitism - where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be a key speaker - but was reportedly refused.
Quote of the Week:
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” - Mohandas Gandhi
Refined (still Hidden) Genocide Facilitators
by Steven Shamrak.
29 September 1938 – The Munich agreement of German, Italian, British and French leaders agrees to German demands regarding annexation of the Sudeten borderland of Czechoslovakia.
9 November 1938 - Kristallnacht begins in Germany with the "night of broken glass" begins as Nazi troops and their sympathizers loot and burn Jewish businesses. (The all-night affair saw 7,500 Jewish businesses destroyed, 267 synagogues burned, 91 Jews killed, and at least 25,000 Jewish men arrested).
4 June 1939 - The SS St Louis, a ship carrying 963 Jewish refugees, is denied permission to land in Florida and was forced to return to Europe. Most of its passengers later died in Nazi concentration camps.
30 June 1939 - A drastic Immigration Restriction Bill passed through congress, suspending all quota immigration to the US for five years. The bill also called for the immediate registration of all aliens in the US at the time.
6 July 1939 - The last remaining Jewish enterprises in Germany are closed.
In 1939 - The British government issued the 'White Paper'. It reversed the support of the Balfour Declaration and announced a limitation on future Jewish immigration to Palestine.
Most countries agreed with and followed the guidelines set by the United States, France and Great Britain. It took brave and honorable men like Raul Wallenberg of Sweden, who saved hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews and Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat stationed in Lithuania, who issued thousands of transit visas to the desperate Jews. But Wallenberg and Sugihara were exceptions and an embarrassment to their governments.
Since WWII, the same genocidal tendency has prevailed. Millions of people were exterminated, facilitated by international apathy and hypocrisy. The memory of the Pol Pot and Rwanda genocides is still fresh. The on-going slaughter of innocent civilians has been perpetrated in the Sudan and Congo for many years. Even now, nothing is done to force Turkey to take responsibility for the genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians in 1905, which paved the way for the Holocaust.
The only news that is fed to the public by the international media is that of a fictitious Arab nation - Palestine. The same facilitators of the Holocaust have been generating their justifications for the blood-thirsty terror unleashed on Jews during the last 60 years by Arabs. The intentions of the Arab leadership and the Islamic terrorist infrastructure to destroy Israel and kill Jews are completely ignored. The rights of Jewish people to live in peace on the Jewish land are deemed by them to be non-existent!
These ugly genocide facilitators are still in control of the world’s future. What makes them even more dangerous is that they have not repented of their sins of the past, like Germany did, and arrogantly continue shaping our future using with the same power-hungry, disrespectful, xenophobic methods!
