Abu Mazen Expresses His True Plans for Israel and Peace

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

Palestinian President Mahmoud “Abu Mazen” Abbas said in an interview to the Egyptian paper “Achbar Alyom” last month that 6 million Palestinian refugees, himself included, are waiting to go their homes they were kicked out of [in Israel].”

Abu-Mazen, besides admitting he plans to overrun Israel with 6 million Arabs, said he will “never recognize Israel as a Jewish state – as that would shut the door to all the Palestinian refugees.”

The interview can be read on the MEMRI site.

Lieberman Blames Abbas for Synagogue Massacre

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman said that the terrorist attack in a synagogue during prayers Tuesday morning “amply demonstrates the baseness of the murderers, and that the responsibility rests entirely with the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas.“

The Foreign Minister added, “Abbas has deliberately turned the conflict into a religious conflict between Jews and Muslims and the systematic incitement he leads against Jews, including his statement that impure Jews may not enter the Temple Mount, provides the guidance for such heinous attacks.

“The international community should condemn Abbas’ anti-Semitic statements which leads to terrible massacres as happened this morning in the synagogue in Jerusalem and make it clear that those who act in this way cannot be seen as a legitimate political figure.”

Netanyahu Warns Abbas Israel Will Protect Its Citizens

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday that Israel will protect its citizens from Arab violence.

Last week terrorists carried out 240 attacks against Israelis, killing two and wounding at least 23 others.

Speaking at the start of the weekly government cabinet meeting, Netanyahu called on “Abu Mazen” – the terrorist name used by Abbas among Arabic speakers – to “stop this propaganda immediately.”

The prime minister was referring to Islamic extremist propaganda, and a call by official PA media last week for a “day of rage” in Jerusalem. Both came less than 24 hours after Netanyahu met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Amman. The three leaders had called for a “calming of the situation” in statements following the meeting.

“We will use all legal means at our disposal, including new legislation, to maintain the security of our citizens and residents,” Netanyahu said on Sunday.

“Israel is also being challenged by lies being disseminate to the effecct that we intend to change the status quo on the Temple Mount – this is a gross lie,” he said. “We are being challenged by the unwillingness to recognize the right of the Jewish People to a state of its own.

“Israel is a Jewish and democratic state,” Netanyahu continued. “Democracy here finds expression in the right of every person to vote in secret elections. It finds expression in Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, which promises full individual rights in a manner that is unprecedented anywhere in the very large region around us.

“The Jewish aspect of the state finds expression in its being the one and only national state of the Jewish People, with a flag, national anthem and the right of the Jewish People to come here. The balance between these two facets in necessary, both to balance our judicial system, which certainly recognizes the democratic aspect, and now needs to also recognize the aspect of our being the national state of the Jewish People.”

Netanyahu went on to say that the government will move ahead with the nationality law designed to create this balance. “It will yet undergo many changes and discussions, but we will make it clear that the State of Israel is the national state of the Jewish People, while providing for equal rights – and ensuring equal rights – for all its citizens,” he said.

Who Is Worse – Arafat or Abbas?

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday, the 10th anniversary of the death of Yasser Arafat, that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas is even worse than his predecessor.

“There is no difference between Arafat and Abu Mazen [Abbas],” he said. “Both of them hate Jews and believe in terror. The only difference is that Abu Mazen is more dangerous because he knows much better how to mask his true face.”

Lieberman put on the finishing touches Wednesday morning when he told Israel that Abbas also is worse than Hamas.

Abbas said in his speech on Tuesday commemorating Arafat that Israel is “contaminating” the Temple Mount. He even had the chutzpah to declare that Christians would never recognize eastern Jerusalem as part of the capital of Jerusalem.

International media have published so much propaganda against Israel that they have virtually erased from history the era of the Jordanian occupation, when Christians, as well as Jews, were barred from all holy sites under Jordanian rule.

Abbas’ outright incitement in his speech included praise for Muslim “heroes” at the Temple Mount who “have the right to defend themselves,” referring to Jews who “attack” by setting foot on the holy site, where they are barred from praying by the Muslim authority.

Abbas apparently fears that Jews might have prayers in mind, and that certainly is dangerous to Allah.

His incendiary speech fired up Lieberman, who is not a fan of Jews parading to the Temple Mount but who also is not too big on diplomatic charades.

He tore into Abbas Wednesday morning and said that he is an “illegitimate” leader of the Palestinian Authority because he has stayed in office for five years beyond the date for new elections.

Abbas “does not respect agreements and does not want peace but instead promotes terror.” He added, “His incitement is more dangerous than that of Hamas.”

Lieberman reiterated his previous suggestion that riot-plagued areas of Israel, such as the Triangle region between Netanya and Kfar Sava, and the Wadi Ara area around the Arab city of Umm el-Fahm to the north, could be part of a new Arab country.

“Once everything is made clear, the rioters certainly would be happy to live in a Palestinian state where they can enjoy freedom of speech, democracy, welfare assistance and unemployment insurance,” Lieberman said with enough bitter sarcasm that could turn honey into sour milk.

So is Abbas really worse than Arafat?

With all due apologies for throwing in a contradictory comparison with the Biblical Noach, the only difference between them is a generation.

The Torah cites Noach as a righteous mean, and Torah sages point out that he was a righteous man for his generation but certainly could not be compared with Abraham, ten generations later. However, each one was righteous in his generation.

Arafat terrorized Israel when ISIS did not exist, when even some Israelis on the center-right believed there could be some kind of compromise with the Palestinian Authority, and when the world had not yet realized that it was on the eve of a radical Islamic revolution and an Iran that seeks nuclear weapons to threaten the world with an Islamic universe or nuclear destruction.

Arafat was a terrorist when terrorism was appreciated by the world so long as it only killed Jews in Israel. He got away with wearing a pistol on his hip while talking about peace. He managed to turn the Nobel Peace prize into a mockery of truth.

Arafat set the stage for Abbas to put on a suit and tie, travel around the world to build up support for a “peace plan” that was a con game to set up Israel for destruction as a Jewish state.

Netanyahu Says ‘Recent’ Arab Terror Is Continuation of 66-Year-Old War

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

The recent escalation in terrorism against Israel is part of a campaign that “has continued since the foundation of the state and even before then,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told an urgent Security Cabinet meeting Tuesday night.

He accused Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas of not being a “partner” in the war on terror and that “instead of calming the situation he is inflaming it…and disseminating lies.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu assured Israeli citizens that all security forces in the country are taking measures to protect Israelis and that “we have defeated terrorism until today and we will defeat it this time as well.”

Netanyahu called the meeting in the wake of two deaths at the hands of two Arab terrorists in separate attacks on Monday and hundreds if not thousands of riots, rock-throwing attacks, shootings and attempted murders the past several weeks.

“We are in the midst of a campaign of incitement and terrorism directed against the State of Israel and its citizens,” he said at the end of the meeting and in a statement for the media.

He noted, “This campaign has continued since the foundation of the state and even before then.

Prime Minister Netanyahu explained that he convened the meeting to update it on decisions made with the IDF, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the police to increase forces on the ground.

Measures that will be taken include “the demolition of terrorists’ homes; a strong hard and more severe punishment of those who throw stones, bottles, fireworks and firebombs; fines for the parents of children and young people who throw stones; [and] the outlawing of those elements that are stirring up unrest in Jerusalem.”

All of these measures have been previously reported this week, but the convening of the Security Cabinet at night and the public statement reflect a wide public fear that Israel is facing an Arab Spring rebellion or nationwide intifada.

“The terrorism being directed against us knows no borders,” Netanyahu stated. “It is trying to uproot us from all parts of the country. From the terrorists’ point-of-view, we do not need to be in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Gush Etzion or anywhere.

“They will not succeed. Even the attempt by extremist Islamic elements to ignite the ground and cause a religious war will not succeed.”

His harsh words for Abbas coincide with hints from the Obama administration that it finally is admitting that perhaps Abbas is not the greatest thing for Israel since Yasser Arafat.

U.S. State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki finally admitted on Monday, after being questioned Palestinian Authority incitement, that “we would like to see President Abbas do more” to condemn incitement. That, of course, is not going to happen unless Abbas suddenly decides to condemn himself.

Netanyahu spelled it out for Psaki, her boss U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and all of the other peace groupies that’s how symptoms of a severe overdose.

“To my regret, Abu Mazen is not a partner in this effort,” the Prime Minister stated. “On the contrary, today, Abu Mazen has again proven that he is irresponsible. Instead of calming the situation he is inflaming it. Instead of speaking the truth, he is disseminating lies to the effect that we intend, or are operating in some way, to change the status of the holy places – this is a gross lie.

“Instead of educating his people for peace, Abu Mazen is educating them for terrorism. The sad thing is that the international community that rushes to condemn every balcony that we build in our capital city, simply ignores this wild incitement of Abu Mazen’s and thus it encourages him to continue actions that could ignite the entire Middle East.”

‘Abu Mazen’ Declares War on Israel, Vows to Seize Jerusalem

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Palestinian Authority unity government chairman Mahmoud Abbas – or “Abu Mazen,” the Fatah terrorist name he uses among Arabs – today (Tuesday Nov. 11, 2014) declared war on the State of Israel.

Claiming that Israel had launched the horrific Arab violence that is being perpetrated against Israelis across the country, Abbas vowed to seize Israel’s holiest city for the PA.

“Israel is leading us into a religious war,” he told thousands of Arabs in the PA capital of Ramallah. Abbas spoke at a ceremony at the Muqata, the PA government seat, to mark 10 years since the death of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) chairman Yasir Arafat.

“Jerusalem will be solely Palestinian,” Abbas vowed.

While Abbas was promising supporters in Samaria that he would lead them to victory in seizing Israel’s capital for their own, PA Arabs further south were clashing with IDF soldiers and Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon was completing a Gush Etzion brigade assessment.

“We are in the midst of an escalation,” Ya’alon told the troops. “We will take a firm hand to stop this wave of violence, including more widespread arrests than in the past, and the demolition of the homes of terrorists.

“The fate of any terrorist who raises his hand with a knife, or who uses a car to run people over, is death,” Ya’alon declared.

To the PA leadership, the defense minister added, “The Palestinian Authority and the entities working on the ground to prevent escalation are conducting coordination meetings with us. That is happening despite the rhetoric, calling for escalation, by the heads of the Palestinian Authority.”

Meanwhile, scores of Arabs hurled rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli soldiers in a violent riot at the Judean Arab village of El Aroub, a burgeoning community that once was a refugee camp. Located close to Highway 60, it is situated close to the Gush Etzion junction and slightly south of Bethlehem.

IDF soldiers responded to the violence with riot control measures and when it became necessary, opened fire in self-defense. A 21-year-old PA Arab was allegedly shot and killed in the melee.

At least 150 PA Arabs were also clashing with IDF soldiers Tuesday in an area south of Hebron, and close to the Jewish community of Negohot.

Security forces were using riot dispersal measures to control the mob and bring the incident to an end without injuries. By 3pm there were no reports of casualties.

Israel’s governing cabinet was set to meet in emergency session Tuesday afternoon in light of the escalation in violence around the country.

Arab ‘Day of Rage’ Unleashes Intifada

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Palestinian Authority unity government chairman Mahmoud Abbas has apparently decided to stand with Hamas and Islamic Jihad to trigger a third intifada.

Abbas issued a call for Arabs to protect the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount “at all costs,” claiming that Jews must be prevented from entering the site. The Temple Mount is the holiest place on earth in Judaism, and third holiest to Muslims.

Leaders of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations quickly followed with calls of their own to hold various “Days of Rage” on Fridays at the Al Aqsa Mosque and other places around Israel.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad urged all PA Arabs – especially the youth – to take to the streets in a “Day of Rage” today (Friday, Nov. 7), urging them to “save the Al Aqsa Mosque and defend Jerusalem against the Israeli siege.”

It is clear that the entire terror leadership of the Palestinian Authority had coordinated the effort. The move was deliberately timed with a warning by Abbas that failure to resolve the conflict between Israel and the PA would lead to an escalation of violence in the region, reported Egypt’s Al Bawaba news site.

Abbas – “Abu Mazen” as he is known among terrorists and the general Arab population – long ago stopped condemning violence even in English speeches.

Instead he’s been issuing fiery calls to his constituents to prevent “in any way” Jews from going up to the Temple Mount, the holiest place on Earth for Jews. Official Palestinian Authority TV produced a short video of those calls, ending it with a picture of Jerusalem and the words, “Arab Jerusalem” and broadcast it 19 times over a three-day period, Oct. 17 to 19.

(Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) notes in its coverage that expressions used by PA leaders such as “in any way” and “using all means” are intended to convey encouragement for varying degrees of violence and terror.)

“It’s not enough for us to say, ‘There are those carrying out Ribat’ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic),” Abbas said. “We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It’s not enough for us to say, ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]‘. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary.

“This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places,” Abbas exclaimed.

Hundreds in Judea and Samaria rioted and clashed with IDF security forces. At least 400 Arabs hurled rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli soldiers at the Kalandia checkpoint, a common target where violence usually starts.

IDF troops did not wait for injuries to justify effective self-defense this time; they opened fire at the raging mob but did not confirm a hit, said an army spokesperson.

Near Ramallah, Arabs also hurled rocks at Israeli security personnel, and similar attacks were carried out further south, closer to Hebron.

Riots were also seen in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat following the funeral of Hamas terrorist Ibrahim al-Akari. The terrorist murdered a Border Patrol chief inspector and a 17-year-old yeshiva boy yesterday and wounded a dozen others, running them over with his van in a hit-and-run terror attack at two Light Rail stops in Jerusalem. Al-Akari was finally stopped by Border Patrol police officers who shot and killed him after he exited his van and started beating bystanders with a crowbar.
