MK Danon: Stop Arab MKs from Joining Qatar Anti-Israel Conference

Ma’ariv reported that MK Danny Danon (Likud) requested that the Knesset Ethics Committee ban Arab MKs from going to the “International Conference for the Defense of Occupied Jerusalem,” to be held in Doha, Qatar next week.

“The conference will include many haters of Israel and therefore the Arab MKs are guaranteed front row seats,” Danon stressed. “The State of Israel should defend itself, and not allow those who take advantage of democracy to attack her from the inside.”

Danon said the Arab MKs are going the way of terror-supporter, former MK Azmi Bishara, and the Knesset must forbid them to participate in forums that have the potential for planning anti-Israel initiatives.

The Qatar News Agency reported that some 350 representatives from Arab, Islamic and other countries will discuss “the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli  occupation, the reality and the future of Jerusalem under occupation, and the status of the holy places under international law.”

The Qatar Tribune reported that Arab League Assistant Secretary-General for Palestine and the Occupied Arab Territories’ Affairs Ambassador Mohamed Subeih on Thursday said he was confident of the success of the International Conference for the Defence of Al Quds (Jerusalem), scheduled to kick off in Doha on Sunday.

Subeih, who arrived in Doha on Thursday as the head of a high-profile delegation of the Arab League general secretariat to prepare for the conference, said that the Palestinian issue in general, and the issue of Al Quds in particular, are at the top of Qatari policy agenda.

“Preparation for the conference began a long time ago. Qatar and the Arab League general secretariat headquarters constantly consulted each other and coordinated their efforts to ensure success of the conference. It will help provide real support to the city of Al Quds”, he said, adding, “This has been a pledge on part of Qatar and its policy.” “The large number of people participating in the conference demonstrates the interest in the Al Quds issue. The participants realise the gravity of the legal violations, forgery and counterfeiting constantly done by the Israeli occupiers,” Subeih said.

The conference will focus on the topics of “Jerusalem and International Law,” “History of Jerusalem,” “Jerusalem and Settlements,” “Israeli Violations and Jerusalem and Civil Society Organizations.”

Jerusalem and International Law will see discussions on the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation, the reality and the future of Jerusalem under occupation and the status of the holy places under international law.

Goldberg might as well have been quoting from Netanyahu’s talking points sheet.

Anti-Israel Bus Ad

The ads use of quotes from a 2001 Netanyahu speech, in which he supposedly described the U.S. as “a thing you can move very easily.” Watch the tape here.

This past summer’s war isn’t over for everyone.

Divorce

“With the launch of this new historic agreement, we hope to make the lives of newlyweds better and more meaningful, so that if, God forbid, the marriage breaks up, it will be done in a fair and respectful manner.”

Bibi’s speech will be during the U.S. workday, but prime viewing time in Israel.

The report, ordered but never implemented by PM Netanyahu, determined that Israeli settlements are legal according to international law.

This isn’t the first assassination attempt against him.

Herzog, Livni and their media backers have thrown everything at Netanyahu. Voters are not impressed.

He said his mission is “fateful, maybe even historic.”

The report seems unbelievable, but the newspaper has an interesting track record.

Snow is uniting the American people, so to speak. An area in every one of the 50 states, including Hawaii, will see snow this week, according to the WeatherBell site. This week will be the first time since 2012 that even Florida will see snow. New York is expected to get another 3-4 inches today, […]

On Thursday evening, students at the Orot Etzion Boys Elementary School in Efrat reenacted different Biblical scenes as part of an interactive live art/Torah exhibition for the month of Adar. Every floor, corner, class and even staircase of the school (think Jacob’s ladder) showed off exhibits and models the students put together by themselves. In […]

A proposed law would require the Senate to approve the deal. Obama threatens to veto it.

The Israeli decision came, according to al-Jarida, in response to U.S. and Iran secret talks—behind Israel’s back—over Iran’s nuclear program.

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 […]
