The video of Palestinian Authority (PA) police officers brutally beating a young Palestinian boy (see below) forces us to once again raise the question: Does the world really care about the Palestinians?
...Imagine had a group of IDF soldiers or Israeli police officers administered this particular beating. A special session UN Security Council hearing, American and European condemnations, and threats of International Criminal Court lawsuits would not be long in coming. To say nothing of the widespread global media attention the incident would elicit.
But the boy wasn’t beaten by Jews. Sure, the effect on him was all the same, but the identity of the criminals is everything. Palestinians beating a Palestinian is nothing. Israelis beating a Palestinian is something.
Which is why we must again ask: Does the world actually care about the well-being of Palestinians? Or is this really all about badmouthing Israel? Is it the treatment and well-being of individual Palestinians that matters, or is it rather the identity of those doling out the abuse, be it real or perceived?
If Israel wasn’t involved, would the Palestinians garner any attention at all? Does the world give any thought to the hundreds and thousands of Palestinians that are routinely abused by Hamas, Fatah and any number of other Palestinian armed groups? (The Arabs, with the help of traditional anti-Semites in the West, created professional refugees after Israel won the War of Independence in 1948. In 1960s, the Soviet Union helped them to become a fake nation – Palestinians. All anti-Semites and enemies of Israel have been using these “useful idiots” against the only Jewish state as a tool of political and moral pressure!)
FOOD for THOUGHT by Steven Shamrak
WE MUST NOT FORGET! I watched the 9/11 attack live on several US television networks. It was a late night in Australia and it was a quite shocking experience, even in the comfort of my home! But, the disgusting part of it was that after the first plane hit a tower, for over 30 minutes almost all TV news anchors repeated the same idiotic mantra - “accident”. If the West isn’t going clearly identify the enemy, and have the dedication to fight and eradicate them, we have no hope to win this war! Let hope that the new resident of the White House will bring a real change to international politics and how it deals with the Islamic threat to the world!
The Palestinian Authority Education Ministry on Thursday announced it was suspending ties with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) over plans by the international agency to reform its curriculum. Proposed changes to textbooks by UN agency, welcomed by Israel, reportedly include revised maps, a ‘balanced representation of Jerusalem,’ and excision of messages seen as incitement. (Professional refugees have no respect for UNRWA or rule of international law. Sometimes Israel needs to learn from them!)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel remained committed to treating war wounded from Syria. Israel has treated more than 3,000 war wounded from Syria in what it describes as a humanitarian gesture.
In defiance of the United States, which is demanding that the Palestinian Authority completely stop financial rewards to families of terrorist “Martyrs” (Shahids), the PA is now raising the payments to the “Martyrs'” families. These PA payments include lifetime monthly allowances to families of suicide bombers, and other murderers of Jews.
Israeli security forces dismantled a monument in Hebron erected in memory of a terrorist who carried out an attack near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. They also seized seven illegal weapons manufacturing lathes and arrested three suspects for terrorist activities. (Is it a beginning of long over-due clean up?)
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman chastised United Nations envoy to the Middle East Nickolay Mladenov for not commenting on recent cases of Palestinians being killed in Lebanon and Gaza, saying it showed the “hypocrisy and double standards” the world has against Israel. Five people were killed in clashes at the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp in Lebanon, while three were executed by hanging in Gaza by Hamas.
Quote of the Week:
”And (mention, O Muhammad), when Moses said to his people, "O my people, remember the favor of Allah upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds. O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back (from fighting in Allah's cause) and (thus) become losers. They said, "O Moses, indeed within it is a people of tyrannical strength, and indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it; but if they leave it, then we will enter." – Quran, 5:20-22 – Jews have entered the Holy Land. Therefore, even according to Quran, Muslims must recognise the unique Jewish ownership of the Land of Israel! Jews have always had lived in Eretz-Israel - in spite of Roman, Christian and Muslim persecution. That means the presence of Muslims on Jewish land is disrespectful to the Quran. If they are true Muslims and followers of the words of prophet Mohamed, they must obey writings in their holy book and leave Eretz-Israel – the land G-d had given to Jews - otherwise, they are just another bunch of anti-Semitic, Jew-hating religious hypocrites like the ones that came before Islam!
Eulogy for the Oslo Accords
by Steven Shamrak
On September 28th the world was supposed to celebrate, but conveniently forgot, the anniversary of the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, widely known as the Oslo Accords. Three political stooges Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Perez received the Nobel Peace prize for signing this worthless piece of paper, which was based on fake promises made by Yasser Arafat in a letter to the Prime Minister of Israel, Rabin on 9 September, 1993.
In this letter Yasser Arafat promised: “The PLO considers that the signing of the Declaration of Principles constitutes an historic event, inaugurating a new epoch of peaceful coexistence, free from violence and all other acts which endanger peace and stability. Accordingly, the PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators.”
It was particularly not convenient to celebrate the dead accord when Mahmoud Abbas came to the UN and put the final nail in its coffin, unilaterally abandoning the principles of negotiation and undermining stability of the peace process.
Due to enormous political pressure exhorted on Israel by the Clinton administration to sign the agreement, many parts of it were deliberately written ambiguously to make it open to interpretation. Israel was prepared to allowed limited autonomy to the non-Jewish populations of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, but PLO was determined to obtain statehood as the first step towards future territorial expansion with the inclusion of the land of Israel and possibly Jordan, as part of Palestine.
Many promises were made clearly but deceitfully by Arafat and never delivered:
1. Terror attacks on Israel have never stopped.
2. PA regularly sabotaged negotiations, endangering peace and stability by breaking them and calling for international pressure on Israel.
3. Terrorists of Fatah, Hamas and other Islamic organisations have been freely conducting their bloody business. Often, the terrorist actions were coordinated by PA to meet its political aim. (cont. see below)
When the Oslo agreement was signed several important undertakings were promised by PLO, but not delivered by Arafat and Abbas:
1. Israel is still not legally recognised by the Palestinian Authority or by any major organisations like PLO or Hamas.
2. New entity is supposed to be a democracy. After the last election, which Hamas won, Abbas illegally retained control of the PA and the next election is long overdue. Therefore, the current PA leadership is not legitimate nor democratically elected representatives of so-called Palestinians.
3. Article XI, 1: “The two sides view the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as a single territorial unit” - At the moment there are two defacto governing bodies: PA, Fatah controlled Judea and Samaria and Hamas in Gaza.
4. Terrorist attacks on Israel have never stopped. Israel was forced to build a wall around the West Bank to stop suicide bombers, who were mainly recruited by Fatah. Gaza was sealed due to terror attacks instigated by Hamas.
5. Article XXII, 2: “Israel and the Council will ensure that their respective educational systems contribute to the peace between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples and to peace in the entire region” - PA has never stopped anti-Israel propaganda! Martyrdom is glorified in the press and in mosques, kindergartens and schools by both Fatah and Hamas.
The Oslo agreement expired several years ago. It has not brought peace, but exposed lies and treachery. Instead of negotiating peace, the PA regularly walked from the negotiation table in pursuit of hypocritical international support in order to pressure Israel for more concessions, giving nothing in return.
This agreement was dead on arrival! It must be viewed by Israel as a lesson, which many terror experts insist on: “Never negotiate with terrorists!” So-called Palestinian people are the fake nation which was forged by Arabs and the KGB in 1964 in order to destroy Israel. They are not interested in peace with Israel. They are occupiers of Jewish land!
Israel must realise that the only way to resolve the conflict is to utilise self-reliance and determination to end the occupation of Jewish land by Arabs and so-called Palestinians. The painful experience of the peace process has proven one obvious point - Arabs will never have peace with Israel! Israel has done everything possible to accommodate the peace with this terror infested entity. Any other country or nation would not even bother. Therefore, it is time to reclaim our land, transfer the enemy population to Sinai or to other numerous Arabs states, those who claim to care so much about “poor Palestinians”. (Why not them? - In order to have peace, Israel forcibly removed 8,500 Jews from Gaza. It did not stop terror attacks. The PA insists that all Jews must be removed from Judea and Samaria! So why not remove them from Jewish land instead?) This is the only option Israel has. The alternative is annihilation!
Arabs respect strong opponents. It is integral to their national makeup. When Israel demonstrated its military superiority it was respected not just by Arab states, but by most countries, including the Soviet Union. It is time to stop being “a little ghetto Jew”, end the policy of appeasement of international anti-Semitic bigots who will never be content with Jews, and stand up for our own rights.
Palestine is the Eretz-Israel - Land of Israel! It is the Jewish ancestral land, which was promised to Jews by G-d and even by resolution of the League of Nation in 1922. It is time to take it back!
