Yesterday in Ramallah, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (12 years into his four year term) linked global terror to the lack of resolution on the ?Palestinian question?.

?The world is completely convinced that neither could the events taking place around us and across the world nor the issue of terrorism can be handled without solving the Palestinian question,? ? said Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas

That is, the Palestinians believe that global terror (not even Middle Eastern terror, let alone just West Bank and Gaza terror) is solely the result of the perpetuation of the Israel/Palestinian conflict or the lack of resolution to ?the Palestinian question?. ? Read more »

Pope Francis’ calls paymaster of terrorism ” An angel of peace “

Above is a cartoon of the man Pope Francis called an ” Angel of peace.” He is Mahmoud Abbas the leader of the unelected ruling party Fatah who financially incentivises terrorism against Israel by rewarding terrorists’ families with a pension. Abbas financed the Munich terror attack in 1972 and has a long history of inciting terror attacks against Jews by glorifying Palestinian terrorists and naming streets in their honour. The Pope had described as an angel a man who is the paymaster of terrorists and a man who continues to lead a party in the West Bank without following any democratic process.

According to Shmuely Boteach, “Abbas spent his life murdering Jews,”

As an ex-Catholic I am horrified at the support Pope Francis has given to those who would destroy Israel. Has he forgotten that Jesus was a Jew? The rock on which his church is built and the first pope Saint Peter was also a Jew.

The olive branch and the pistol

Would you trust a guy with an olive branch in one hand and a pistol in the other?

With a gun on his hip, on November 13, 1974, PLO chief Yasser Arafat stood before the UN General Assembly and made the West an offer that it didn?t refuse.

At the end of a long speech in which he rewrote history to erase all connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel and criminalized the very notion of Jewish freedom, Arafat declared, ?Today I have come bearing an olive branch and a freedom fighter?s gun. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. I repeat: Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.?

Trump will take office on Friday. He will be faced with dealing with Arafat’s replacement, Mahmoud Abbas who is repeating Arafat’s original offer.

Respect for Palestinian female terrorists but not Palestinian female politicians

Palestinian women get respect and recognition for committing brutal terrorist acts but what they don’t get respect for is being involved in local politics. ?Male political ?candidates are ?listed with their name and photo ?but female candidates are referred to using the terms “the wife of” or “sister.”

 

…In a move that has outraged Palestinian women and various Palestinian factions, a number of Palestinian lists contesting the upcoming local elections, scheduled to take place on October 8, have decided to omit the names and photos of female candidates.

Instead of referring to the female candidates by name and publishing their pictures, the electoral lists are using the terms “the wife of” or “sister.”

Critics have denounced the move as a “sign of retardation, extremism and bigotry.

…The decision to conceal the names and photos of female candidates is seen in the context of the increased “Islamization” of Palestinian society, which is already considered highly conservative.

Apart from being a severe blow to the struggle of Palestinian women for equality, the move is in violation of the 2005 Palestinian Local Election Law, which stipulates that candidates must be fully identified by name, age, address and registration number in the electoral list.

This anti-woman undertaking is not taking place only in the Gaza Strip, under the control of the Islamist Hamas movement. It is also baring its fangs in some parts of the West Bank, which is ruled by the Western-funded Palestinian Authority (PA), headed by Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestinian terrorists do it for the money

Terrorist dollars-Image conservativepapers.com

We have all read about the incitement culture inside Palestine. Young children are taught to hate Israel and Jews and are encouraged to kill from a very young age. When terrorists are killed in self-defence by Israelis they have schools and streets named after them and are honoured and celebrated inside Palestine.

There is one other thing that happens when a Palestinian terrorist kills that many of us are not aware of. ? Unbelievably, the terrorist’s family is financially rewarded by the Palestinian government. This financial incentive, this payment of money, makes Palestinian terrorists assassins for hire. Not only do they believe they will receive a heavenly reward when they stab to death a 13-year-old Israeli girl inside her own bedroom, they also get a street named after them and their family is taken care of financially.

It is this terrible, evil practice that is now being targeted by the Israeli government.

Palestinians tell their kids to kill but world outraged at Israelis who defend themselves

What was the security guard supposed to do when he was attacked by a knife wielding Palestinian who happened to be 13?

I’d shoot too.

A 13-year-old Palestinian girl was shot dead on Saturday by an Israeli security guard she tried to stab at a settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Israeli police said.

Hours later, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas came out against Palestinian groups he said were encouraging youth to take part in an almost four-month long surge of violence with Israel which has raised concern of wider escalation a decade after the last Palestinian uprising subsided.

Finally, Abbas has come out against Palestinian terror attacks…but note, only if they involve children.

The fatal incident on Saturday followed two stabbings this week inside settlements carried out by Palestinian teenagers, according to Israeli authorities.

“There are people who want them to go, this is not acceptable. This is a generation we want to build. They send him (youths) there to be wounded or killed,” Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.

No surprises here from adherent of the “religion of peace”.

A poll released on Monday found that two-thirds of Palestinians support the ongoing wave of?stabbings?against Israelis, while nearly?the same percentage give a thumbs-up to the idea of an armed uprising, or intifada, against Israel.

France24 reports that a survey of 1,270 people in 127 randomly selected locations by the?Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) reveals that?67 percent support the use of knives, while 66 percent of those asked said an armed intifada or uprising would “serve Palestinian national interests in ways that negotiations could not.”

On the up side, nearly three-quarters said they opposed the involvement of “young schoolgirls” in stabbings. How chivalrous of them. ? Read more »

The shameless hypocrisy of Phil Goff

http://gty.im/2037635

Phil Goff is utterly shameless and a complete hypocrite.

The photo above was taken in 2003 in Ramallah when Goff went crawling to the?Palestinian Authority. He met the then Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, who is now the current Palestinian President despite no elections in at least seven years.

On the same trip Goff was also photographed holding hands with Yasser Arafat.

Why won’t the Media Party mention the war against Jews

There are hashtags for Charlie Hebdo, hashtags for Paris, candle lit vigils for victims of Islamic terrorism in western cities, but complete and utter silence, or at the least misleading stories, about the current war on Jews.

Gilead Ini writes at NY Post:

This week began as the last one ended ? with more Palestinian stabbing attacks against Israeli Jews, and more dead. And yet, this information might surprise readers of The New York Times.

On Sunday, a 20-year-old Israeli woman was stabbed to death, another Israeli was rammed by a car and attacked with a knife and a third was assaulted by a knife-wielding teen affiliated with the Islamic Jihad terror group.

All three assailants were killed in the course of their attacks.

But the headline to the Times? story about Sunday?s attacks did away with cause and effect, muddled victim and aggressor: ?1 Israeli, 3 Palestinians Killed in Attacks in West Bank.? The online headline was later changed, but the print headline Monday morning was equally obtuse: ?West Bank Faces Spate of Assaults That Kill 4.? The ?West Bank? faced nothing. It was Israelis who faced assaults.

This was par for the course ? and in some ways, even mild ? for how the Times has covered the so-called ?stabbing intifada,? the recent spate of Arab-on-Jewish murder. ?? Read more »

McCully called out over disconnect in his ‘peace’ proposals

neville-mcully

Sheree Trotter is a Kiwi and she has had an opinion piece published in the Times of Israel (and on Middle East Voices).

In her piece she points out the flaws with McCully’s ‘peace in our time’ approach to Israel and Palestine.

New Zealand?s Foreign Minister McCully is currently circulating a draft United Nations Security Council resolution, purportedly seeking to bring Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table. His reference to ?New Zealand?s character of having a reputation for even-handedness and fair-mindedness???reminds one of the involvement of another NZ politician in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Former NZ Prime Minister, Sir Geoffrey Palmer, Q.C. was invited to chair the UNSC investigation into the 2010 Gaza Flotilla incident. Palmer?s approach to this highly contentious issue was ?to call it as the evidence in front of us suggested and to ignore the political considerations, in order to produce a straight-up-and-down report with no bias to either side?. With a combination of ?legal reasoning, international law and diplomacy?, the Palmer-led panel came to conclusions notable for their incongruence with the popular narrative of the conflict.?The Palmer report?found that the thousands of rockets launched by militant groups from Gaza were indeed a real threat to Israel?s security. Stopping these violent acts was seen as an ?obvious? and ?a necessary step? for Israel to take to protect her citizens.

In contrast, McCully is circulating a draft resolution that refuses ?to call it as the evidence suggests?. While McCully is supposedly looking to support action that would stop the ?downwards spiral in recent months?, he has shown a decided unwillingness to directly confront the source of that violence. He has obfuscated the issue by implying an equivalence between murderous attacks on innocent civilians and Israel?s efforts to protect her citizens. ?? Read more »
