Can't load it, but they have admitted before, and the Dem leadership knows, and don't care. as well as the right side don't seem to care.
Trump cutting funding to them he seems to be the only one who does care.


Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advise, and a good conversation.

The Poor Little Palestinians

Post: # 168241Unread post Gary Oak »

Abass is exposed here. The best way to deal with liberals and moslems is with the truth so it's good to know the facts. Here is a good question, how can the liberals call Israel a n apartheid state when Abass calls for not allowing one Jew to live in Paestine should it ever exist doesn't get any protests from the liberals or by the way muslims either. Both are clearly hypocrrits.

The End Of Mahmoud Abbas, The Phony Pacifist

There's not a day that goes by now when Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) doesn't denounce through words and deeds the decline of his power, or rather, doesn't express his agony while other events occupy the Palestinian scene and its eventual, albeit difficult, development.

During a meeting with Israeli peace activists in Ramallah, Abbas repudiated for the umpteenth time his rejection of any peace plan that comes from the United States--from hated U.S. President Donald Trump, who dared to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

And it's understandable because this, more than anything, demonstrates his bankrupt policy. He hasn't achieved any historical gains, instead insisting on refusing every agreement, every possibility for his people.

He has tried to evoke a decent and pacifist image of himself abroad, managing with determination through the allocation of a great deal of money (aid coming from all corners of the world, including from you, dear reader) and the continuous push towards terrorism. He hasn't left room open for a successor, and now he is besieged by his worst enemies.

In a recent statement, Abbas condemned the idea that the Palestinians and Jordan should form a confederation--an old topic that has never been confirmed by the Americans as part of a peace plan, but which could soon be on the horizon given that it is full of economic promises and public interest.

It's a reasonable aim, and therefore hated by the unreasoning chief of the Palestinian Authority. But he sees the American plan as part of the conspiracy--one of the many he constantly talks about--to destroy the Palestinian national cause.

This, however, is not the case. Here is a possible answer to Palestinian politics, his politics, inherited by the former chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization Yasser Arafat. But he doesn't want that. The ongoing declarations of terrorism have finally been laid bare through a series of moves by the Trump administration and its U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

There are two main issues that have emerged in the last several days: the dialogue that hangs over Abbas's head, with the bizarre use of Qatar as a bridge and, above all, Egypt, in order to neutralize Hamas and thus avoid another war in Gaza.

It's a far-sighted strategy that could limit deaths and injuries, and leave Jerusalem able to concentrate fully on a task that is dear to the entire Sunni world: to drive Iran, which currently besieges the whole Middle East, out of Syria.

For now, there is no war. Hamas certainly hasn't become Zionist, but it was stopped. And Abbas remains very angry, declaring that the only one with the right to make an agreement with Israel is him, and that if Hamas wants to join him, it must hand over its territories and militias. Of course, that's not going to happen, and Arab peace efforts move forwards, leaving him isolated as he continues to say no to Egypt, Qatar, Trump ... and as usual, to Israel.

Abbas's allegations just keep flying. They continue to do so following another momentous choice: The United States has decided to stop recognizing as refugees those Palestinians who for 70 years declared themselves to be so after the end of Israel's 1948 War of Independence.

Those children and grandchildren, increasingly numerous, have acquired not only all the rights, but also the status of Palestinian refugees (given only to them, among all other refugees in the world), which the very benevolent United Nations has bestowed upon them. While the definition of refugee is reviewed, the ad hoc organization of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) will no longer receive the annual $300 million allocated by the United States.

The so-called Palestinian refugees have, in the meantime, increased from 500,000 to 5 million. UNRWA not only impedes them from embarking on a life of normal learning and professional advancement, but has also, more than any other actor, made it its policy to prevent any solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

UNRWA has prevented the relocation of refugees, and so they stat, forever classified as such, and their children stay, going to school in structures that adopt textbooks that are full of hate and incitement to commit terrorism, and associating with extreme groups that call for Israel's destruction.

The deconstruction of this system cancels one of the main tenets of Abbas's prevailing Palestinian policy, which is the so-called "right of return." Every reasonable attempt at an agreement has sought to highlight the notion of inviting a tide of 5 million people into Israel--for all intents and purposes, bringing about the demise of the Jewish state.

From the moment he became head of the Palestinian Authority in 2005, Abbas failed to maneuver a single strategic victory, despite the fact that Israeli leaders (one after the other) have repeatedly invited him to the negotiating table for peace talks and offered him several possibilities. Now his tetragonal, angry wall has worsened.

His legacy has been stained with blatantly anti-Semitic and Holocaust-revisionist statements, and his defense of salaries to imprisoned terrorists immediately after America cut funds to the P.A. over such payments leaves observers utterly speechless.

He's a leader who can't lead, beaten by the changing political landscape and providing nothing but the wrong answers.

I can't get over how these muslims love the3 sympathy of liberals yet they have no sympathy for others themselves. Extreme acts of cruelty by muslims are praised. The pity party mentality is so low level. Muslims gang rape girls and no muslims are outraged. They pray for the murder of non muslims. Liberals don't care about the victims of muslims either which is bewildering as they like top see themselves as morally superior. Just imagine if all the aid to Palestinians was divided up equally among them. They would all be rich without even having to work yet they spend it al on trying to wage war against Jews.

The Palestinian Victimhood Narrative No Longer Sells

After decades of accepting the idea that Palestinians deserve American financial assistance without offering anything in return, President Trump has finally said, "Enough." Fed up with their lies and obduracy, he decided the Palestinians are not entitled to US taxpayer dollars to pay terrorists, support phony refugees, and line the pockets of corrupt leaders who enrich themselves, their families, and their cronies.

Cutting aid to UNRWA was long overdue because UNRWA is a poster child for the fraudulence of Palestinian claims. UNRWA has invented five million refugees and created a welfare system to guarantee their perpetual misery.

The refugee problem could have been solved decades ago, as UNRWA originally envisioned, if the leaders in Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria gave the Palestinians citizenship, took them out of camps, and allowed them to assimilate into their societies, where they already shared a common language, religion, and culture.

And how can anyone justify the fact that Palestinian leaders keep their people confined to camps. After Israel evacuated Gaza, the Palestinians said that they would build housing for refugees on the rubble of the settlements, and received billions of dollars for the project. I don't think a single house was built for a single refugee.

Where did the money go?

To Hamas, for building rockets and tunnels, and taking care of themselves at the expense of the people. Perhaps one day the refugees will grow tired of uselessly railing against Israel, and protest their jailors from Fatah and Hamas.

The Palestinians' enablers immediately predicted the loss of US funding would create a humanitarian catastrophe in the territories. But where are the other 190 countries in the world that could fill the gap? Most of these countries declare their fealty to the Palestinian cause and vote for every UN resolution that feeds Palestinian fantasies.

Of course, casting a vote is easy, because it costs them nothing. If they really cared, do you really believe a coalition of states, or the EU alone, could not replace the few hundred million dollars the United States was providing? The Arab oil producers could fund the Palestinian Authority's annual budget out of a week's oil revenues.

What if all the groups and individuals promoting the antisemitic boycott of Israel gave money to help the Palestinians rather than spending their money on convincing artists not to perform in Israel, pushing propaganda on college campuses, or interfering with employment opportunities for Palestinians who want to work for Israelis? I'm sure Roger Waters, Viggo Mortensen, Penelope Cruz, and the other thousand or so celebrity BDS advocates could come up with enough money to take care of the people they claim to care for so much.

Come to think of it, why haven't the Palestinians, who love to copy the pro-Israel community's ideas, sold Palestine Bonds. Israel raises more than $1 billion from donors in the US alone. Surely all the supporters of JVP and SJP, CAIR, and the other groups professing concern for the Palestinians would rush to their brokers to buy Palestine Bonds.

But the PA has no money to repay the bondholders. Maybe if tens of millions of dollars were not going to pay terrorists in Israeli jails and the families of martyrs they could have a bond campaign. But, if they did raise money from bonds, would the corrupt Palestinian leaders just embezzle it and continue to pay the terrorists?

People complaining about Trump have forgotten that the Palestinians conceded nothing to Obama. To the contrary, the Palestinians grew more obstinate in reaction to Obama's sympathy for their cause. Mahmoud Abbas, who had been negotiating with Ehud Olmert before Obama took office, refused to negotiate with Benjamin Netanyahu for his entire term.

Obama followed the tired, cliched playbook that produced 70 years of failure in US diplomacy. Trump's team is blowing up the entire Arabist approach. Unlike their predecessors, they understand the Palestinians' negotiating strategy has been to secure Israeli compromises without making any of their own. They would then use the last Israeli position as the starting point for new talks, aimed at drawing further concessions from their interlocutors.

According to The New Yorker's Adam Entous, Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt, and David Friedman compare the Palestinians' decision to reject Israel's previous offers to missing out on a chance to buy Google stock 20 years ago. Now it's too late to get the old price, and they must pay a lot more in return.

Equally important, Trump has smashed the sacred cows of the peace process -- Jerusalem and refugees. The Arabists believed that Israel needed to re-divide Jerusalem and predicted an apocalypse when Trump decided to take Jerusalem off the table by recognizing it as Israel's capital. Once again, they were wrong. Trump's move was critical to disabusing the Palestinians of their fantasies of solely claiming Jerusalem as their capital city.

The Arabists bought into the Palestinian narrative about five million refugees expelled in the Nakba, and expected Israel to accept at least a limited "right of return," knowing that this was suicide for Israel as a Jewish state. Trump, however, refuses to accept the UNRWA definition of refugees and the administration is calculating a realistic figure for the actual number of refugees -- probably more like 150-200,000 -- that would be near the 100,000 number that Israel has long offered to accept on a humanitarian basis.

Israel will be expected to make concessions, including perhaps evacuating some settlements, but these will likely be consistent with past Israeli offers.

With the exception of the fanatics in Tehran who care about the Palestinians only to the extent that they can be used to advance Iranian interests and threaten Israel, most Arab and Muslim leaders have grown tired of the Palestinian issue. Arab leaders were said to fear the "Arab street" rising up against them if they dared abandon the Palestinian cause. It was always a myth. When the street did not react after the US recognized Jerusalem and moved its embassy, the lack of concern for the Palestinians became clearer than ever.

Trump's peace plan is unlikely to succeed, but this has nothing to do with the elements of the plan and everything to do with Palestinian irredentism. From an ideological, Islamic, psychological, and political standpoint, the Palestinians have no desire for peace with Israel.

Ideologically, the Palestinians are led by the old guard that has never been psychologically capable of abandoning the idea of liberating all of "Palestine," which means they are no more willing to give up Haifa than they are Jerusalem. From the Islamic standpoint, it is inconceivable that what the Palestinians consider Muslim land should be ruled by Jews or that dhimmis can rule over Muslims.

Psychologically, the Palestinians feel aggrieved, consider the establishment of Israel the "original sin," and need to feel their grievances (such as acknowledging the "right of return") are addressed. Politically, surveys indicate the Palestinian public has little interest in peace without Israeli capitulation -- and even if they felt differently, they have no say under their dictatorial leaders.

The Palestinians deserve better, but, as The Wall Street Journal editorialized, "If the Palestinians want to be treated with the respect of a peace partner, they have to first show a desire for peace." And it really has to start with the Palestinian people, who are suffering and discontented with the denial of their civil and human rights by their leaders, but have vented that frustration on Israel.

They will have to redirect their kites and rocks and bombs at the Muqata in Ramallah, and the headquarters of Hamas. They will have to demand control of their future and abandon the ideology, religious fanaticism, and politics of the past, and open themselves to new opportunities.

Who wants to live in an Arab nation ? This fact really points to an obvious fact that even when a country is awash in oil money few people from western nations want to live there.

Arab World Largely a Cesspool of Ruthless Despotism


Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman’s (MBS) ordered abduction and murder of Jamal Khashoggi was a drop in an ocean of brutal Arab world internal and cross-border high crimes.

State-sponsored murder, torture, intolerance of dissent, and countless other human rights abuses are commonplace in Saudi Arabia, other Gulf states, Egypt, Jordan, and elsewhere in the Arab world – its ruling authorities among the world’s must ruthless regimes.

Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser is one of countless other victims of Saudi brutality and murder – reportedly killed weeks after Khashoggi’s assassination.

According to the despotic UAE-based Khaleej Times, Jasser was murdered in prison for operating a Twitter account called Kashkool, exposing human rights abuses by Saudi ruling family members and other regime officials.

Arrested in March for truth-telling, he was eliminated to silence him. MBS and his henchmen continue brutalizing and murdering regime critics – the international uproar over what happened to Khashoggi not stopping them.

Riyadh reportedly has an “army of Twitter trolls,” ferreting out regime critics, fingering them for elimination.

World community outrage over Khashoggi’s murder flies in the face of dismissiveness toward countless other Arab world atrocities – the kind of stuff horror films are made of giving anyone watching them sleepless nights.

The only reason Khashoggi’s murder attracted worldwide attention is because it happened in Turkey, Erdogan using the incident for major concessions he hopes to extract from Riyadh – perhaps billions of dollars to help the country’s troubled economy, along with more for himself and family members.

It’s why he authorized release of damning information to drip out almost daily – published in regime controlled media.

According to whistleblower Edward Snowden, Israeli intelligence software was used to track Khashoggi, saying:

Israeli cyber intelligence firm NSO Group Technologies’ “digital burglary tool” was used, able to take lives as well as save them.

Separately, the Middle East Eye (MEE) slammed European politicians for “accept(ing) and collud(ing) with” tyrannical Arab world regimes, dismissive of democratic values and horrendous human rights abuses they commit.

The same goes for America and Israel, allied with despotic regimes for their own self-interest.

Legitimate dissent and criticism of ruling authorities are considered crimes against the state by Arab world despots. Alleged reforms are systematically breached, not enforced.

“By relentlessly targeting all forms of free political and civil work,” tyrannical Arab regimes prevent constructive change, said MEE, adding:

“When political content that does not appeal to the authorities is spotted, the author is in danger of severe punishment, including imprisonment, excessive fines or enforced disappearance” and death – why MBS eliminated Khashoggi, Jasser, and countless other victims of his ruthlessness.

The same things go on throughout the region and worldwide, including in Western societies and Israel where democracy is pure illusion, not real.

Maybe MBS, the CIA, and Israel’s Mossad have eliminating me in mind. If I mysteriously disappear one day, blame them

Israel's Kindness Is Repaid With Terror


Israel gives the Palestinian Arabs self-rule in large sections of Judea-Samaria, and they use it to promote terrorism.




Israel releases Palestinian terrorists from prison as a gesture, and the newly freed prisoners resume engaging in terrorism.




Israel permits Arab residents of Gaza--enemy territory--special permits so that they can receive medical care in Israeli hospitals or to carry out business transactions in Israel, and they use those privileges to assist terror cells.


Anybody notice a pattern here?




This week's discovery of a huge Hamas terrorist network in the Palestinian territories is chock full of disturbing lessons.

Let's start with the very fact that such a network, directed by the Hamas regime in Gaza, has been operating with near impunity throughout the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

The P.A. has one of the largest per-capita security forces in the world. Yet for some reason, they never noticed all these Hamas terrorists running around. It was the Israeli security services, the Shin Bet, which once again had to carry out the anti-terror operations that the P.A. refuses to undertake.

"Hundreds" of members of the terror network were captured, the Israeli news media reported this week. Not 20, not 80, but hundreds! They were planning "to conduct large-scale bombing attacks," and had been instructed by their commanders to "select crowded sites as targets for the attacks ... trains, buses, hotels and restaurants."

Sites were scouted in order to kill as many Jews as possible. Pittsburgh-style.

The discovery of the network began with the arrest of a Hamas terrorist named Osweis Rajoub from the village of Dura, near Hebron. Dura has been under the complete control of the P.A. since 1995. It also has more than its share of residents who have been involved in terror incidents.

Rajoub spilled the beans to his Shin Bet interrogators. The Shin Bet has been criticized by various left-wing groups over the years for supposedly being too rough when questioning murderers and would-be murderers. I don't know what tactics they used to get Rajoub to talk, but I'm sure glad they did what had to be done.

Think about how many lives they saved. Think of all the parents who will not be mourning the murder of their children, wives who will not be widows, and all the children who will not be orphans because the Shin Bet interrogators did their job.

As a result of Rajoub talking, "hundreds of young Palestinians, both men and women, who had been recruited by Hamas," were arrested, according to the news reports. That's right, women, too. In Palestinian society, women are silenced, abused and treated as second-class citizens in almost every respect--except in the ranks of the terrorists. If they're willing to murder Jews, Palestinian women can finally enjoy gender equality.

How were messages carried from the Hamas leadership in Gaza to its terrorists in the P.A. areas? In two ways, the Shin Bet discovered: "by Palestinians traveling from the coastal enclave to hospitals in Israel" and by "Gazan businessmen with permits allowing them to travel to the West Bank."

One of these couriers of death was 53-year-old Na'ama Mikdad, a mother of nine from Gaza "who had been given a travel permit to accompany her sister who had cancer and received medical treatment in Israel." How nice of Israel to do that. In fact, the Israelis gave her the permit even though they knew she and her sister are the nieces of a Hamas military commander, Muhammad Abu Kuwaik.

How did Mrs. Mikdad repay Israel's kindness? She traveled to P.A.-controlled Bethlehem, where she met with the terrorist Rajoub and handed him "trousers into which a cloth strip had been sewn on which instructions ... had been written." He had already been passed a phone to be used in planning the attacks.

"With the phone and the instructions on how to use it, Rajoub began working with an explosives expert to create the bombs needed for the attacks," the Shin Bet revealed. He also recruited two assistants from another P.A.-ruled village, Yatir.

Mrs. Mikdad also brought messages from the Hamas leadership to a terrorist in the P.A. capital city of Ramallah, named Fouad Dar Khalil. He had previously spent 14 years in prison for "taking part in a shooting attack on an Israeli car," as the Shin Bet put it. Clearly, he was released much too soon. And receiving his freedom evidently did not inspire him to give up his old terrorist ways. On the contrary.

Israel wants to be a nice guy. I get that. But I wonder how long the Palestinians will continue to repay Israel's niceness with terrorism before it finally becomes obvious that in rough parts of the world like the Middle East, nice guys finish last--or, all too often, don't finish at all.

Oh look ... another muslim lie being exposed. Jews are protecting Arabs from Arabs. This completely exposes the muslim lie that Israel is an apartheid state and only is trying to protect Jews from jihadist muslims who seek the genocide of the Jews. I also notice that the corrupt biased UN has no interest in protecting Christian Arabs from muslim jihadis who seek their genocide and sexual enslavement of any attractive Christian Arab girls.

Middle East Christians Look To Israel As Last Refuge From Islamic Radicals


Despite the success of U.S.-led coalition forces against the Islamic State, Christians in the Middle East run the risk of "imminent extinction" due to the "threat of violence, murder, intimidation, prejudice and poverty," the Archbishop of Canterbury recently warned.

Amid their struggles, Middle East Christians and other religious minorities received a boost in recent weeks with the signing into law by U.S. President Donald Trump of the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act, which provides humanitarian relief to genocide victims in Iraq and Syria, and holds accountable Islamic State perpetrators of genocide.

Pastor John Hagee, founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel, who has been outspoken on the need for the United States to do more to aid Middle East Christians, applauded the law.

"My sincere hope is that through this bill, American assistance will aid those religious groups that suffered so horrendously under the Islamic State, and American and foreign authorities will go after those responsible for the horrors committed by the Islamic State," he told JNS.

"I don't know that we can ever say that enough has been done to make up for what these people endured, but this is a good step by the Trump administration," he added.

Robert Nicholson, executive director of the Philos Project, said that "the long and arduous work of getting this law passed was worth every bit of effort it took. It's impossible to fully heal the Christians and other minorities who were persecuted by Islamic State, but this law goes a long way toward starting the process."

Tricia Miller, a senior research analyst and Christian expert for CAMERA, told JNS that the new law will boost support for relief groups, including faith-based ones, who had been only relying on private donations until now.

"The U.S. government is now authorized to fund organizations, including faith-based groups, that are on the ground in Iraq and Syria, and are strategically positioned to provide aid to Christians and other minorities who have been terrorized by the Islamic State."

Edward Clancy, director of evangelization and outreach for the charity organization Aid to the Church in Need, told JNS that the law is a good "first step."

His organization, which has been on the ground in Iraq helping the beleaguered Christian community there, said the law needs to "deliver on its promise to provide aid directly to Christians and other minorities."

Iraq has 'lost 75 percent of its Christian population'

Despite the new law and recent success against the Islamic State, which has led to the liberation of many of the ancestral lands of the Christians in Iraq's Nineveh Plains region, the damage done over the last several years has been significant to a community that has already been weakened by decades, or even centuries, of persecution.

"The numbers of Christian families have been on a steady decline for over a century, but in the last two decades, the departure of Christians has been devastating. Iraq has lost over 75 percent of its Christian population. If current trends in Syria continue, there might be the same type of loss there," Clancy told JNS.

"The Christian population in Iraq has gone from 1.5 million in 2003 to just about 200,000 today, and the numbers in Syria are comparable, although more difficult to know exactly as a result of confusion in the context of war," said Miller.

Clancy noted that while some Christians have been returning to their villages and homes, there remains a sense of despair among the community, as well as a lack of opportunity, fear of future attacks and a sense of abandonment.

"While some 40,000 Christians have returned to rebuilt homes, more than 120,000 evacuated the region when the Islamic State attacked in the summer of 2014," he said. "The people who have returned live without any semblance of infrastructure. There is no regular electricity or running water. Fuel for cars and generators is difficult to come by, and the telecommunication network is erratic at best. They need more stability, or they will leave and join the more than 45,000 have left Iraq."

Philos Project's Nicholson said that the local attitudes, as well as political and legal rights of Christians in the region, need to change if they are to have any long-term prospects.

"Christians are still viewed by most Muslims as second-class citizens, who are to be protected rather than respected. They need political rights, substantive equality, due process and fair representation," he said.

Islamic radicals 'greatest threat to Christians' in the region

While Christians in Iraq are attempting to rebuild their lives after the Islamic State attacks, many still see radical Islam are the primary threat to the community.

"From Tehran to Damascus and from Hezbollah to the Muslim Brotherhood, the greatest menace to Christians in the Middle East are the radicals in the region," Hagee said.

Nevertheless, he thinks that the United States should further work with its allies in the region, which in turn bolsters the support for Middle East Christians.

"We have true allies in the region as well. Allies that share not just our interests, but more importantly, our values. The Israelis and the Kurds are our true allies in the region, and because of the tolerance exhibited by those allies, we help Middle East Christians by supporting Israel and the Kurds," Hagee said.

At the same time, Hagee expressed concern over the announced withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria, which had been working and protecting minority groups in the area, including the Kurds, as well as providing a bulwark against Iranian expansionism and fighting the Islamic State.

"I am troubled by the recent decision to withdraw the remaining American troops working alongside Kurdish forces in Syria," said Hagee. "The American presence there is a deterrent to all the evil forces in the region--Islamic State, Iran and its proxies, and Turkey."

He continued, saying "without an American presence, I am concerned that our enemies--those same groups and countries that would seek to attack Israel and persecute Middle East Christians--will find an opening to bolster their presence in the Levant, and wreak havoc on Middle East Christians and Kurds."

Israel the 'only country in the Middle East where Christians are free'

Although Christians living in Muslim majority countries in the region face a bleak future, the small Christian minority living in Israel has unparalleled rights and protections. Unlike other countries in the region, the population of Christians in Israel has actually been growing. According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, the Christian population stood at around 170,000 in 2017, up from 167,000 in 2016 and 133,00 in 2000.

"Israel is the only country in the Middle East where the Christian community is thriving. Israeli Christians are equal citizens in every respect; they can hold any job, serve in government and the military, go to school and worship as they see fit. One of my most fervent prayers is that one day soon every country in the Middle East will approach minority rights, and frankly women's rights as well, the way Israel does," said Hagee.

Nicholson echoed this sentiment, but noted that the Israeli government needs to do more to continue to work with the community.

"Israel is still the only country in the Middle East where the Christian population is stable and free. There have always been tensions between churches and states throughout history, and churches in Israel are no different. The Israeli government has a lot to learn about Christianity and the needs of Christian communities. But when it comes to political representation, religious liberty and economic opportunity, Israeli Christians are far and away better off than their brothers and sisters living in countries nearby."

Still, everything isn't rosy in the Holy Land for Christians. In the disputed territories, especially in areas under Palestinian Authority control, Christians face pressure similar to elsewhere in the region.

"Christians in the disputed territories are a shrinking minority in an overwhelmingly Muslim population under the rule of the Palestinian Authority," Miller said. "Christians in the disputed territories are routinely threatened, and their ability to work and own property is challenged constantly."

In Bethlehem, which is regarded by Christians as the birthplace of Jesus, there has been a sharp decline in the Christian population--a fact often ignored by Palestinian Authority leaders who seek to capitalize on the city's religious history to rail against Israeli policies.

"In Bethlehem, the Christian population has declined from 85 percent in 1947 to 46 percent in 1967, and now it might be under 10 percent. Christians leave because there is little opportunity for them, and their skills and education make life in the West very attractive," Clancy said.

Keep Middle East Christians in your 'prayers'

Amid the holiday season, Hagee urged American Christians to keep the plight of their brethren in the Middle East not only in their prayers, but also to continue to speak up for them.

"My message is simple: Our brothers and sisters in Christ are being persecuted for their faith. We must pray for them, speak up for them and ensure our elected officials know that this issue is deeply important to people of faith across the country," he said.

The pastor added that Christians should also take a page from the Jewish people, and to remember and build on past tragedies regarding their religion.

"I'd add that I've learned over the years that my Jewish brothers and sisters remember the destruction of the Temple and the tragedies that have befallen them at many celebrations and gatherings. This is deeply meaningful to me," he said. "Christians should learn from this, and even as we celebrate with our families, we should remember that at this moment there are those of our community who are enduring unimaginable pain and persecution in the name of our faith."

Abass actually praised the killer of a pregnant Jewish woman. How evil is that ? Liberals have to be extremely unthinking to side with the jihadis against Israel. Another reminder for readers, don't the 50% of Arabs including the Christian Arabs and the Druze Arabs welfare matter to liberals ?

Twisted Logic: Abbas Condemns Israel For Cracking Down On Terrorists

Three Israelis have been killed in the latest wave of Palestinian terrorism in the West Bank in the past week. The victims are two soldiers and a four-day-old baby who was prematurely born after his mother was shot and wounded in a drive-by shooting attack carried out by Palestinian terrorists.

The terrorist attacks took place near the West Bank city of Ramallah, the de facto capital of the Palestinian Authority (PA), where President Mahmoud Abbas and most of his senior officials live and work. The car used in the drive-by shooting, which took place outside Ofra settlement, was later discovered by the Israeli army in the Ain Musbah neighbourhood of Ramallah, a few hundred meters from the private residence and headquarters of Abbas.

No one is suggesting that Abbas knew in advance of the terrorist attacks. However, the response of Abbas and his top officials to the attacks raises serious doubts about their purported commitment to peace with Israel.

Hours before the Ofra attack, Abbas said in a speech before leaders of his Fatah faction that he remains committed to "peaceful popular resistance" and diplomacy. "We don't believe in weapons, and we don't believe in rockets," Abbas said in a reference to the rockets launched by Hamas and other terrorist groups from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.

The same Abbas who says he is opposed to the use of weapons and rockets has nonetheless failed to condemn the terrorist attacks in which these three Israelis were killed. Instead, his officials and he have been condemning Israel on a daily basis for cracking down on the terrorists.

The anti-Israel incitement began almost immediately after the Ofra attack, when Abbas and his officials in Fatah and the Palestinian Authority began denouncing Israel for sending soldiers into Ramallah to search for the terrorists.

Instead of condemning the murders at Ofra, Abbas's Ministry of Information issued a strong condemnation of the Israeli army for entering the offices of the Palestinian news agency Wafa. The ministry described the entry of the soldiers as an "act of terrorism" and called on the international community to hold Israel accountable for its "aggression" against the Palestinians.

According to the logic of Abbas's ministry, Israeli soldiers searching for terrorists is an "act of terrorism," but not the shooting of a pregnant woman and six other Israeli civilians standing at a bus stop.

The Israeli army did not enter Ramallah because Israel wants to "reoccupy" the city and reinstall the Israeli military government. This was a limited operation that lasted for a few hours and was in the context of the manhunt against the Palestinian terrorists. Abbas and his senior officials, however, have since been waging a fierce campaign of incitement against Israel and spreading lies and ridiculous conspiracy theories.

Consider, for example, what PLO Secretary General Saeb Erekat, who describes himself as the "chief Palestinian negotiator," had to say about the Israeli authorities' pursuit of the terrorists. Erekat, in a bizarre statement, claimed that the Israeli "intrusion into Ramallah was carried out with the backing of US President Donald Trump." Erekat, too, called on the international community to hold Israel accountable for its "crimes" and to provide international protection for the Palestinians.

What is strange about Erekat's statement is that he is suggesting that Israel needed permission from Trump to send its troops into Ramallah to catch the terrorists who murdered three people. What is also strange is that Erekat believes that the Israeli attempt to capture terrorists is a "crime" for which Israel should be held accountable in the global arena.

Yet, the bizarre PA statements continue. Take the remark made by Osama Qawassmeh, a senior Fatah official and spokesmen, who claimed that the Israeli military operation in Ramallah was actually aimed against Abbas himself. For Qawassmeh, the Israeli army "stormed" Ramallah because of Abbas's rejection of Trump's yet-to-be-announced plan for peace in the Middle East.

As if that were not enough, the Fatah official went on to argue that the Israeli army's attempt to catch the terrorists was also linked to Abbas's opposition to a recent US resolution at the UN General Assembly that condemns Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets at Israel and inciting violence.

This absurd charge reflects the twisted logic of Abbas and his representatives in Ramallah. For them, the real problem is not the shooting of a pregnant woman or the killing of two soldiers. Instead, the Palestinian leaders, including Abbas, are pointing an accusatory finger at Israel for having the audacity to send its soldiers to capture Palestinian terrorists and prevent additional attacks against Israeli citizens.

Needless to say, the Israeli soldiers who entered Ramallah never went close to Abbas's office or home and certainly had no intention of targeting him or any of his officials. In fact, not a single Palestinian Authority or Fatah official was arrested or harmed by the Israeli troops.

Does this Fatah official think the rest of the world is so stupid as to believe that Israel would put the lives of its soldiers at risk by sending them to Ramallah just because Abbas has rejected a peace plan that no one has seen or knows anything about? Did any of the soldiers who entered Ramallah knock on Abbas's door and hand him a letter saying he must accept Trump's unseen plan or else he would be punished? Of course not.

Here is another example of the lies and conspiracy theories promoted by Abbas's officials in the past few days. Mahmoud Habbash, who serves as Abbas's religious affairs adviser, said in response to the Israeli security measures against terrorism, that Israel and Hamas were colliding to "flip the table" in the West Bank to pave the way for the implementation of Trump's upcoming "deal of the century."

It is also worth noting that Hamas has publicly admitted that it was behind the recent spate of terrorist attacks in the West Bank. Yet according to Habbash, Israel's crackdown on terrorism is nothing but a conspiracy concocted by Israel and Hamas to undermine the Palestinian Authority and pave the way for "passing the deal of the century, which is aimed at liquidating the Palestinian cause."

Abbas's adviser, however, is convinced that the world is so stupid as to believe that Israel and Hamas were together behind the recent terrorist attacks. This is yet another blood libel against Israel from the Abbas and his entourage. Not only is this statement a lie as well as an insult to common sense, it almost seems lifted from a comedy show.

"Almost", that is, because these apparently laughable remarks refer to a series of terrorist attacks that have claimed the lives of Israelis. As such, the statements should be taken seriously, and seen in the context of the Palestinian leadership's anti-Israel campaign of incitement and fabrications. It is precisely this sort of inflammatory rhetoric that prompts Palestinian terrorists to continue their attacks on Israel.

Instead of blaming Hamas for the terrorist attacks, Abbas's office chose to hold Israel responsible for the upsurge of violence in the West Bank. "The climate crafted by Israel's policy of recurring incursions into Palestinian cities, as well as incitement against President Abbas, has led to this round of violence, which we reject," said a statement issued by the Palestinian president's office.

Again, this statement shows that Abbas considers Israel's anti-terrorism measures, and not Hamas-engineered attacks, as the source of unrest and violence. The message that Abbas is sending to the world is: How dare these Israelis take security measures to stop terrorist attacks against their civilians and soldiers!

Abbas is obviously afraid of condemning his rivals in Hamas for waging the latest wave of terrorist attacks in the West Bank. He knows that the day he condemns the shooting of a pregnant Israeli woman, his people will rise up against him and charge him with collaborating with Israel. But Abbas has only himself to blame: his ongoing incitement and lies against Israel have made it too dangerous for him to utter a word against Palestinian terrorists.

Finally, we might mention an important detail about which Abbas and his representatives are keeping their mouths shut tight: the Israeli crackdown on Hamas in the West Bank actually serves the interests of the Palestinian Authority. Without this ongoing crackdown, Hamas would have long ago overthrown Abbas's regime and seized control of the West Bank.

It is the Israeli soldiers stationed some hundreds of meters from Abbas's office and residence that is keeping him safe and sound. As inconvenient a truth as this is for Abbas and his spin doctors in Ramallah, it is the truth, nonetheless.

Yet the liberals isist that these wannabe murderers are the victims ! :scratch:

PA Chooses Terror Promotion & Rewards Over US Aid

As of January 31st, the US administration ceased all its aid to the Palestinian Authority. In response, Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian Chief Negotiator, said:

"Hundreds of Palestinians will be losing their jobs as a result of the U.S. decision to terminate all USAID projects in Palestine. An additional step in a series of punitive and unethical measures, carried out by the Trump Administration, against the people of Palestine to pressure its leadership to compromise on our inalienable right to self-determination." [Website of the State of Palestine PLO Negotiations Affairs Department, Feb. 2, 2019]




Upon closer examination, it becomes clear that Erekat, on behalf of the PA, is once again distorting a very simple fact. In reality, it is not the US that has made any such decision. Rather, it is the Palestinian Authority, headed by Mahmoud Abbas, which has positively decided to reject all of the considerable US aid to the Palestinians.

It has done so by actively choosing to continue its "Pay for Slay" policy, whereby the PA squanders hundreds of millions of dollars annually to incentivize and reward terrorism and terrorists including convicted murderers and the families of dead terrorists (so-called "Martyrs.")

American veteran Taylor Force was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist while touring Israel. When the US understood that the PA pays the family of the murderer of Taylor a monthly allowance, it passed the Taylor Force Act (TFA, passed March 2018). According to the provisions of TFA, most of the US aid to the PA became contingent on the PA abolishing its "Pay for Slay" policy.

Instead of heeding the call of the US administration, the PA made a positive decision to waive the US aid and continue its "Pay for Slay" policy, with Abbas declaring that the PA prioritizes rewarding terrorist prisoners rather than taking care of the rest of the Palestinian population:

"By Allah, even if we have only a penny left it will only be spent on the families of the Martyrs and the prisoners, and only afterwards will it be spent on the rest of the people." [Official PA TV, July 24, 2018]
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg



In parallel to the passage of TFA, the PA managed to escape being held legally and financially responsible for its promotion of terrorism. At the end of lengthy litigation, in which the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York found the PA responsible for terrorism that caused the death of American citizens and ordered it to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation, the US Supreme Court, accepting the argument of the PA, decided that the US Courts did not have jurisdiction to adjudicate the cases. [Sokolow v. PLO and PA US Supreme Court No. 16-1071 April 2, 2018]

In response to that decision, in October 2018, the US passed the Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act(ATCA). The new legislation was very simple - any recipient of US aid inherently agrees to the jurisdiction of the US court system.

In other words, the PA could no longer be a recipient of US aid and then claim that the US courts have no jurisdiction to penalize it for its responsibility for terrorism against US citizens.

Understanding that if it continued to receive US aid, the PA would finally be held financially liable for its promotion and involvement in terrorism, PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah wrote to US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, saying that "In light of these developments, the Government of Palestine respectfully informs the United States Government that, as of January 31st, 2019, it fully disclaims and no longer wishes to accept any form of assistance referenced in ATCA."

So while it is true that the US aid to the Palestinian Authority ended on January 31st, 2019, Erekat's attempt to mislead the world by laying the blame for the cessation of the aid and the ensuing loss of Palestinian jobs on the US administration should be seen for what it is - another PA excuse to shirk and deflect responsibility and distort the truth.

The truth is that the US aid ended because the PA positively decided to reject the assistance in favor of continuing its "Pay for Slay" policy and in order to avoid being held responsible for its terror promotion and involvement in terror that has claimed the lives of hundreds of victims, including numerous US citizens.

The American use of financial leverage to force the PA to choose a peaceful approach and the best interests of its population instead of choosing violence and continued promotion of terrorism by continuing its "Pay for Slay" policy could have constituted a huge step towards achieving peace. However, according to Abbas and Erekat's statements, it seems to be a step the PA is not prepared to take.

Liberals side with the arabs who want genocide and want an apartheid state while calling Israel an apartheid state which Israel clearly is not. it's only the arabs that want to run through the streets killing Jews that Israel keeps walled out. It they had no murderous intentions there would be no wall. Israel protect all Arabs who are not muslim from the muslim psychopaths and is the only country in the muddle east that allows them freedom of religion. Now what about all the sites in Israel that are important to Christians and Jews ? Muslims would destroy them with no concern whatsoever for the feelings of Christians and Jews.

Replacing Israel With A Palestinian State From The River To The Sea?

News Image By Eric Margules/Algemeiner.com December 14, 2018
Share this article:

Marc Lamont Hill, a political commentator was recently fired by CNN after a video surfaced of him calling for "a free Palestine from the river to the sea". This phrase is often the rallying call of the terrorist group Hamas, Students For Justice In Palestine and other Islamic groups that would like to see Israel replaced by a Palestinian state.

So you think that Israel should be replaced by a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea? That Israel should cease to exist as the world's only Jewish nation-state -- and the only democracy in the Middle East -- and be replaced by a country with a Palestinian majority?

Have you thought about what would happen if Israel disappeared? You center your debate on whether Israel has a right to exist. Perhaps we should instead imagine the hypothetical replacement of Israel with a Palestinian-majority state, and answer some obvious questions:

What would happen to the six million Jews who live in present-day Israel? Can they count on a Palestinian-led government to protect them? Will they feel safe? Will they be safe? And if they don't feel safe and need to flee, where will they go? Arab countries expelled them, and surely won't allow them back in; Europe tried to annihilate them and remains a hostile environment for Jews. Perhaps Jews could flee to North America or other places that are not as hostile, but it's quite a lot to demand of a people to give up their homeland.

What will happen to women? Women in Israel have full and equal rights. Women in Arab countries are treated as chattel and second class citizens, often punished severely for daring to exercise rights that Muslim men take for granted.

What will happen to minority groups? In Israel, non-Jewish minorities have full legal rights. They can vote, are members of the Knesset, and sit on the Israeli Supreme Court. In Arab countries, non-Muslims (and Muslims of the wrong sect) are not full citizens, and never treated as equals. They have no voting rights, no right for governmental representation, and restricted rights in many other aspects of life.

Who will take over as leading the way in providing disaster aid to the rest of the world? Israel has a long, valuable, and proven track record of helping countries in disaster situations. Arab countries have no record of helping. In fact, they often don't honor the rare pledges of money or help that they do make.

How will the government of the new country be formed? Despite opportunities, Palestinians have never formed anything but a kleptocracy fueled by foreign aid and terror. Elections haven't been held in the West Bank in over a decade, and the government in the Gaza Strip obtained power through a violent takeover. Will Jews have any role in the new government? How will Palestinians and Jews work together with such a long history of animosity?

What kind of government will be formed in the new country? Will it be a democracy, as Israel is? Almost no Arab state is a democracy. Will it be a dictatorship? Will it be a military-run government? Will it be a theocracy? Will there be any place in the government for non-Arabs or non-Muslims?

What will happen to Jews who don't live in Israel, and live as minorities in their host countries? Will Jews return to times like World War II, where they had no place to go in desperate situations? Will Jews once again be weak, downtrodden, and vulnerable in their host countries? Will the new country help Jews living elsewhere in any way?

What will happen to the tremendous first-world economy that has been developed in Israel? Israel is a major incubator of cutting edge technology that helps the world immeasurably. Arab countries have little or no record of helping the world with any kind of product invented by them. No Arab economy is thriving, and many in the Arab world live in squalor.

It's not enough to argue about what may or may not have happened in Israel 70 years ago, 100 years ago, or 10 years ago. Certainly, Jews can argue their rights to the land on many levels. But those advocating the replacement of Israel by a Palestinian state need to consider the above.

There is room for compromise, but replacing Israel should not be an option. To replace Israel with yet another oppressive dictatorship with few or no human rights or protections for minority rights would be a catastrophe. It would not be good for anybody -- not Jews, not Arabs living in Israel, and not the rest of world.

This is only what the fifty percent of arabs in Israel want and they are all Muslim jihadis. These Muslim jihadis see their liberal benefactors as useful idiots of course as liberals don't fare very well in places that muslims take over. The fact that I keep raising and nobody else seems to be aware of is that 30% of Arabs are Christian in Israel and no liberals care about how the muslims treat them or the approximately 130,000 Druze Arabs in Israel. The liberals don't care about the Arabs protesting Hamass that get killed for their protesting.

What Will Happen The Day After A Palestinian State Is Established?

A Palestinian terror group says that its engineers have developed "accurate and destructive" missiles that can reach the "occupied" cities of Tel Aviv, Netanya and Jerusalem. Abu Hamza, spokesman for the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Iranian-funded Islamic Jihad organization in the Gaza Strip, threatened that his group's "rocket unit" would turn Israeli cities into "hell."

"There is no place for the Zionist enemy on the land of Palestine," Abu Hamza said. "Either they leave this blessed land, or they will be dealt one painful strike after the other."

Islamic Jihad is the second-largest Palestinian terror group in the Gaza Strip, after Hamas. Neither group recognizes Israel's right to exist. Both say they are committed to the "armed struggle until the liberation of all Palestine, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River."
The leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad see Israel as one big settlement to be uprooted from the Middle East.

For them, there is no difference between a Jewish settlement in the West Bank and any other city inside Israel. As far as they are concerned, Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Haifa and Nazareth are all "occupied" cities. Palestinian weather forecast bulletins often publish names of cities inside Israel on a map that does not mention the word Israel.

The Palestinian leaders say that the conflict with Israel will end only when Israel is annihilated.

"We won't give upon one inch of the land of Palestine," said Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. "We will continue to fight until all the refugees return to their homes" -- meaning areas in Israel within the "green line" 1949 armistice borders.

In 2017, Hamas published a document of "General Principles and Policies," in which it claimed that it was ready to accept a Palestinian state on the pre-1967 lines (West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem) -- but without Hamas recognizing Israel's right to exist or Hamas "giving up all of Palestine."

In other words, Hamas is saying that it would not oppose the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem; it would use these territories as a launching pad to "liberate the rest of Palestine."

The Hamas document clearly states that "no part of the land of Palestine shall be compromised or conceded, irrespective of the causes, the circumstances, and the pressures, and no matter how long the occupation lasts." It affirms that Hamas "rejects any alternative to the full and complete liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea." The document also states that Hamas will never recognize the "Zionist entity" or relinquish any Palestinian rights.

Although Hamas says in the document that it is ready, for now, to accept a Palestinian state alongside Israel, it nevertheless considers "Palestine, which extends from the River Jordan in the east to the Mediterranean in the west, and from Ras Al-Naqurah in the north to Umm Al-Rashrash [Eilat] in the south, an integral territorial unit. It is the land and the home of the Palestinian people."

The Hamas document has been misinterpreted by some Westerners as a sign of moderation and pragmatism on the part of the terrorist group. Reuters, for example, claimed in a May 1, 2017 dispatch that Hamas has "dropped its long-standing call for Israel's destruction."

This claim is completely false. Reuters, like several other Western media outlets, ignored those parts of the Hamas document that mentions the need to eliminate Israel. Here are other parts of the document that reveal Hamas's true intentions:

"The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas is a Palestinian national liberation resistance movement. Its goal is to liberate Palestine and confront the Zionist project. Palestine is an Arab Islamic land. It is a blessed sacred land that has a special place in the heart of every Arab and every Muslim.

There shall be no recognition of the legitimacy of the Zionist entity. Whatever has befallen the land of Palestine in terms of occupation, settlement building, Judaization or changes to its features or falsification of facts is illegitimate. Rights never lapse."

Worse, some Westerners have gone so far as describing the document as the "new Hamas charter." Again, that claim is false. The Hamas charter, which was published in 1988, continues to exist; it has never been changed or amended. This charter states :

"... the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king or president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organization nor all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that...

"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised."

For the past three decades, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been major players in the Palestinian arena. They are not splinter factions than can be dismissed as irrelevant. The two groups control nearly two million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip.

Each group has its own political leadership , as well as militias that possess various types of weapons, including rockets and missiles. The two groups also have thousands of militiamen in the Gaza Strip who consider themselves "soldiers" and "freedom fighters" in the war to eliminate Israel and kill Jews.

Those who think that Hamas and Islamic Jihad will vanish one day are living in an illusion. The two groups continue to pose a real threat, not only to Israel, but also to Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank.

Were it not for Israel's security presence in the West Bank, Hamas and Islamic Jihad would have toppled Abbas's regime long ago. Hamas and Islamic Jihad despise Abbas and consider him a traitor because of his purported support for a two-state solution.

Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar was recently quoted as saying that when his movement "liberates Palestine," it will bring Abbas to trial for betraying the Palestinians.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad should be given credit for their clarity and honesty regarding their ambitions. The two groups are clearly saying that their ultimate goal is to see Israel removed from the region and replaced with an Islamic state. As far as they are concerned, the conflict with Israel is not about a settlement or a checkpoint or even Jerusalem. Instead, it is about the presence of Jews in what they regard as their own homeland and State.

Any Middle East peace plan that ignores what Hamas and Islamic Jihad are saying is doomed to fail. Moreover, ignoring the two groups will pose a massive threat to security and stability in the region. The US administration, which says it will unveil its plan for peace in the Middle East after the Israeli elections in April, ought to think and think again about the plan's possible repercussions.

This is what members of the US administration needs to ask themselves: What will happen the day after a Palestinian state is established?

The answer, according to Hamas and Islamic Jihad (and other Palestinians) is that the Palestinians will use this state to continue the "armed struggle" until the liberation of the occupied cities of Tel Aviv, Nazareth, Tiberias, Jaffa and Haifa. Under the current circumstances, a Palestinian state will pose a clear and present existential danger to Israel.

The Islamic Jihad threat of turning Israeli cities into "hell" by firing missiles at them needs to be taken seriously by those who are working on the upcoming US peace plan. Any land that is given to Abbas and his Palestinian Authority in the West Bank will be used in the future by Hamas and Islamic Jihad as a base for launching rockets and missiles into Israeli cities.

Then, the terror groups will not need accurate, long-range rockets to achieve their plan to destroy Israel's population centers: they will be sitting right across the street from them.

The Palestinians are capabl;e of governing themselves. They have areas and in spite of all their aid thaey have made these areas horrible./ Hamass kills Arabs who protest their corruption, they have an apartheid system of government that would not even allow a Jew to live there and would harass their Druze and Christian brothers and sisters. If Jews were given these areas Jews would make them first world places that Arabs would want to move to.

Kushner says Palestinians not able to govern themselves

Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner has refused to back Palestinian statehood ahead of the expected release of his "peace" plan, saying he believes the Palestinians are not ready to govern themselves.
Kushner also told US news site Axios that he did not mind the Palestinians do not trust him.
The Palestinians, he stated, "should have self-determination", without saying whether that would mean an independent state or some lesser form of autonomy.
Asked if the Palestinians could expect freedom from any Israeli regime or military interference, Kushner said "I think that it's a high bar".
The Palestinians have already dismissed the upcoming plan touted as the "deal of the century" by President Donald Trump, saying US actions so far have shown Washington is blatantly biased in favor of Israel.

PressTV-Kushner revisits Mideast to push Trump's 'peace' plan
Jared Kushner is leading an envoy in the Middle East to push Trump's so-called “deal of the century” despite Palestinians objection.
The Washington Post said in April that the plan is likely to “stop short of ensuring a separate, fully sovereign Palestinian state.”
The so-called peace plan was expected to be unveiled at the end of the holy month of Ramadan in June.
During the interview, Kushner said he was not concerned over whether the Palestinians do not trust him.
"I'm not here to be trusted," he said, adding the Palestinian people would judge the deal based on whether "they think this will allow them to have a pathway to a better life or not."
Relations between the Palestinian Authority and the US took an unprecedented dip in late 2017, when Washington recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s “capital”.
Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital. However, Israel insists on maintaining the occupation of Palestinian territories.
The Palestinians have rejected the US Middle East initiative as “the slap of the century” because it is said to hugely favor Israel.

This is the true nature of the Muslim leadership in the Arab areas of Israel that are always playing the innocent victim card. This also I believe shows what Israel would be like if they were to gain control. https://www.israelhayom.com/2019/06/23/ ... the-hague/

Needs to ditch the painted lips, but shes pretty cute.

In no way would this work the other way around, I would bet not a single Arab country would let a Jewish woman have that opportunity.
Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advise, and a good conversation.

Why is it that Muslims are okay with these sexual assaults. They only have a problem with people publicizing how they are. https://www.timesofisrael.com/palestini ... wjMh5VB5g8
