PA President, Taking Cue from Obama, Demanding State Map

Will Bibi play into the hands of the unholy trinity of Obama-Kerry-Abbas?

There you have it, Israel is finally being blamed directly for acts of God.

Back during the first and second Intifadas, Israelis used to joke that the Arab territories were a modern-day Shangri La, since not a single Palestinian seemed to die from natural causes – according to the Palestinian media, every last one of them died at the hands of the IDF. Now they blame even the natural causes on the Jews.

Will Bibi play into the hands of the unholy trinity of Obama-Kerry-Abbas? Will he blink first, give in to pressure and produce a map? Mind you, it makes no difference what he puts in that map, even if he is most generous with the settler community and gives them the entire 7 percent of Judea and Samaria where they’re currently living – in the end it would only be a basis for negotiations.

Because the Abu Mazen map demands 100 percent of the territories, all of it, with 100 percent of the Jews removed.

Thank God, former Defense Minister Ehud Barak is no longer on hand to carry out the State Department’s policies at the Israeli government table. The new minister, Moshe Yaalon, is made of less narcissistic stock. And Naftali Bennett is also part of Netanyahu’s security cabinet, giving the settlers a presence in decision making they haven’t had for a decade.

If Netanyahu wants my advise (he rarely calls any more), he should present a map, with the entire land of Israel, from the Jordan to the Rafah crossing included in Israel’s possession. We can start from there, and negotiate.

  1. David Willig says:

    I got a great map. The borders of the last self governing entity called Palestine. Never was such a country, was there? Never will be, either. Unless they take over Jordan and change the name. Riddle me this: What is the difference between a Palestinian and a Jordanian? Same language, same culture, same family tree.

  2. Alan Kardon says:

    Based on all previous negotiations Palestinians do not believe Israel has a right to exist. So why are we wasting time discussing anything with them. Tell Kerry to first get them to agree that Israel must be recognized. That should keep Kerry busy.

  3. Let's see what the Arabs produce. To date they have never made or even accepted a single compromise.

    Nor have they ever fulfilled even a single obligation that they have already agreed to – not even for a single day.

    They have also violated every single provision of every single treaty that they have ever signed.

    The map should be from the River to Sea – just as the Arabs proclaim and that we tell the Jordanian colonists to get up and leave the land they illegally occupy.

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Ayatollah Hossein-Kazamani Boroujerdi, in better times (left) and in his prison cell (right).

Boroujerdi was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed.”

Senior Hamas and Fatah leaders in Gaza City on April 22. Hamas and Fatah signed a deal to establish a unity government, but since then little progress has been made.

Fatah: Hamas stole relief aid for Gaza and distributed it amongst its followers in mosques.

Can teenagers seriously be expected to behave properly when they are surrounded by so much suggestive material? Is it fair to expose them (and ourselves) to so much temptation and then tell them, “Just say no”?

Washington remains ignorant of the need to dismantle alliances with various Muslim countries.

Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority cannot even agree to move their clocks back on the same day.

Last week the president announced a four-point plan. Unfortunately, there’s little buy-in from our European and Middle Eastern allies. Here’s my own four-point plan that may be more palatable to our allies.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]

Yes, God judges, but His judgment is that of a loving father who longs for his child’s quick return.

Anti-Semitism has returned to the mainstream of European society and Israel has become its focus.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
