Peace is Deception and Self-Destructive

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Peace with Enemies of Israel is Deception which leads to Self-Destruction

The Hudaybiyyah peace treaty was a 10-year truce that Muhammad, Islam's Prophet, made with the Quraish Tribe of Madinah (including Jewish tribes). However, two years into the truce, Muhammad attacked and conquered Mecca. The PA Minister of Religious Affairs stressed in his Friday sermon that Muhammad's agreeing to the Hudaybiyyah treaty was not "disobedience" to Allah, but was "politics" and "crisis management." The minister emphasized that in spite of the peace treaty, two years later Muhammad "conquered Mecca." He ended his comparison by expressing the view that the Hudaybiyyah agreement is not just past history, but that "this is the example and this is the model."

Since the signing of the Oslo Accords, there have been senior PA officials who have presented the peace process with Israel as a deceptive tactic that both facilitated the PA's five-year terror campaign against Israel (the Intifada), and which will weaken Israel through territorial compromise that will eventually lead to Israel's destruction.

Arafat also compared the Oslo Accords to the Hudaybiyyah agreement: "This agreement (the Oslo Accords), I am not considering it more than the agreement which had been signed between our Prophet Muhammad and Quraish, and you remember the Caliph Omar had refused this agreement and considered it Sulha Dania (a despicable truce). But Muhammad had accepted it and we are accepting now this (Oslo) peace accord."

Well Done Ya'alon!

In response to the European Union's decision to ban contracts with Israel pertaining to disputed territories, Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon instructed the IDF and the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories to stop cooperating with EU representatives in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. The instruction came recently and included orders to halt any assistance the IDF might be granting EU representatives working in infrastructure projects in the territories.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Fascists of Nazi Germany and Italy, Communists of modern South America, as well as Islamists in Turkey and Egypt have a peculiar similarity. They all love democracy and used its elections to get to the power. They all love democracy and use its elections to get to power. After that they take control of a country and destroy its democratic principles in order to impose their totalitarian political or religious principles on others!

Abbas is Taken to International Criminal Court

Former PA security chief complains that "arbitrary, dictatorial and corrupt behavior" of Abbas harms the entire Palestinian people. Dahlan’s accusations came in the form of an unprecedented legal complaint he recently lodged against Abbas with the UN, the EU and the International Criminal Court. In his complaint, a copy of which was sent to US Secretary of State John Kerry, Dahlan accused Abbas of “political persecution” and “human rights violations.” (No one wants to hear about PA corruption and violation of human rights, as it interferes with the international agenda of bashing Israel!)

Kerry is still an Optimistic Fool

US Secretary of State John Kerry says the "agreement is still in the process of being formalised" and Israel-Palestine talks may resume. At the same time PA called for border agreement before continuing talks, countering Israel's insistence on no preconditions. At the same time Kerry promised release of 350 prisoners/terrorists.

PA Honor Fatah Terrorist

The PA held a military funeral for Ahmed Abu al-Sukkar, who was involved in the 1975 “refrigerator bombing” in Jerusalem’s Zion Square. Fourteen people were killed and more than 60 injured in the terror attack.

Born in Jerusalem but not Israel?

A federal appeals court declared unconstitutional a law allowing (Jewish) Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their birthplace on their US passports, the latest ruling in a case that stretches back a decade.

Abbas has no Authority to Negotiate

Hamas dismissed US State Secretary John Kerry's announcement of the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the PA and slammed President Mahmoud Abbas: "He has no legitimacy to negotiate in the name of the Palestinian people on the core issues." Hamas government spokesperson, Ihab al-Ghossein, said that "the Palestinian people will not accept those who negotiate on its behalf without a mandate." (Abbas is the illegitimate representative of the so-called Palestinians. Hamas won the last election and a new election is long overdue! The West won’t push for the election because they know Hamas will win, and the sham of the “peace process” will end.)

EU Blacklists Hezbollah - Sort of

The European Union agreed to blacklist the “military wing” of Lebanon’s militant Shiite organization Hezbollah in response to the group’s alleged activities in Europe. However, the blacklisting only applies to Hezbollah’s “military wing,” a distinction that allows officials and diplomats from European countries to continue meeting with Hezbollah’s “political” leaders. (Europeans are quite eager to boycott products from Judea and Samaria made by Jews)

Blame Game has Already Started

The Arab League said it supported the PA’s stance on the announcement of resumed peace talks with Israel, but that it was skeptical of Israeli intentions (but not of so-called Palestinians?) The Arab Peace Initiative, unveiled in 2002 by Saudi Arabia, says that 22 Arab countries will normalize ties with Israel in return for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria (as the first step of destruction of Israel)

While Netanyahu Welcomes Talks PA Takes Time

Several days after the ‘new initiative’ was announced, senior PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo said that the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership has still not decided to return to negotiations with Israel. The decision depends on the PA's receiving clarifications on certain matters (pre-conditions) that are still unresolved. (Why is it that Israel’s gutless politicians are always jumping into any opportunity to negotiate ceding Jewish land to enemies, who have proven so many times they do not want peace and never will have with the Jewish state?)

Will US Free Pollard?

Among the gestures the United States suggested Israel undertake to resume talks with the PA was the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. It would not have been the first time Israel agreed to such a gesture at Washington's request - but this time, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sought to make it a three way deal. Israel would be prepared to release terrorists in order to jumpstart the talks, Netanyahu told the Americans. But Israel wanted something in return - The release of Jonathan Pollard from an American prison.

Mob Intimidation is an Islamic Tool of Spreading Terror

In France, at least 20 cars were torched and four people arrested in a second night of rioting.  Police faced a mob of 250 rioting people hurling objects after a woman received a ticket on Thursday for wearing a full-face veil in a public venue. Her husband reportedly tried to strangle the officer who wrote out the summons. (Islam has no respect for the laws or culture of others! What would happen if a Western woman would walk without a burqa on a street of Riyadh?)

EU's Decision on Hezbollah not Enough

Yisrael Beiteinu chairman and MK Avigdor Lieberman slammed the EU's decision to put only the military wing of Hezbollah on the terrorist list. He said that the entire organization should be blacklisted: "The military wing and the political wing of Hezbollah are two sides of the same coin. At the head of each stands Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah. The attempt to present the group as if it is partially extremist and partially moderate is like asking can a cannibal be a vegetarian...”

It Will Never be Enough for Islamic Bigots

Despite Israel’s apology (which should not been made at all) to Turkey over the Mavi Marmara incident, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said that his country will not be satisfied with Israel simply paying compensation to the Marmara victims. The Jewish state, he said, must acknowledge that the money it is paying to the victims is a result of its committing a wrongful act. (The aim of the Islamic government of Turkey is to intimidate and embarrass Israel, not a peaceful and friendly co-existence!)

Quote of the Week:

”Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s willingness to “do everything” to avoid giving the Palestinians a pretext for not turning up for their first encounter with Israeli negotiators in Washington Tuesday, July 30, bodes ill for Israel’s bargaining position right from the start. So too does his proposal release 104 Palestinian prisoners.” - - Weak leadership produce bad result for the country!

Pollard Must be Freed

The US reportedly refused an Israeli request to free imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard in exchange for Israel releasing Palestinian prisoners, ahead of new peace talks with the Palestinians. Pollard, a naval intelligence officer, was arrested in 1985 and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1987 for passing on classified information to Israel. Since then he has been held in solitary confinement and is due for mandatory parole in November 2015.

Pollard, a naval intelligence officer, was arrested in 1985 and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1987 for passing on classified information to Israel about Israel’s enemies, which US supposed provide Israel but did not.

Even according to former US assistant secretary of defense Lawrence Korb after nearly three decades in prison, Pollard no longer poses a threat to the US or its military secrets. (This attitude of US administrations has only one name - anti-Israel bias! Even Soviet spies spent less time in US prisons. Enemies of Jewish people have never been generous with gestures toward Jews or Israel. Why should Israel make gestures, which are not appreciated anyway, to enemies who are determined to destroy Jewish state?)
