Bedouin City Backs United Arab List

Friday, March 6th, 2015

The deputy mayor of Rahat met with United Arab List leaders Thursday night and agreed to encourage Bedouin to support the party.

The Knesset last year raised the minimum number of votes for a party to gain entry in the Knesset, a move that forced the two Arab and one Jewish-Arab party to unit in order to keep their seats.

The union, along with behind the scenes encouragement from the Palestinian Authority, has resulted in an unprecedented enthusiasm among the Arab and Bedouin sector, whose participation in elections traditionally has been relatively low.

The Arab parties usually have been represented by 9-11 Knesset Members, but all polls indicate that the United Arab List will end up with 12 or 13 MKs after the votes are counted. A larger-than-expected turnout could raise the number even more.

The Likud and the Zionist Camp party, formed by the merge of Labor with Tzipi Livni’s HaTnuah party, are the only two parties that will win more ballots than the Arab List, according to current polls.

That could change if the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) regains some of its support that has been lost to the new Yachad party, which is struggling in the polls that show it on the borderline of entering the Knesset..

Rahat politicians are opening up a field office for the campaign in coordination for the “Committee for National Reconciliation Accord by the Renaissance.”

Atta Abu Medeghem, the acting mayor of Rahat, said:

We declare our full support for the joint list to achieve victory for Arabs against racism and for full equality and the overthrow of the right-wing arrogant government.

Arab party leaders openly oppose the existence of Israel as Jewish nation.

 

‘Settler’ Girls vs. Galilee Arabs in Soccer Playoffs

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Girls, ages 10-13, from Efrat in Gush Etzion will square off against girls from the Galilee Arab village Sakhnin tonight in a playoff game that will determine which group will advance to the semi-finals in the girls’ league.

“We are involved with soccer and not politics,” one of the Efrat girls said. “We really want to win this game for the semi-finals.”

The group started playing together last year, but since Efrat has no official-size soccer field, they trained and played in Jerusalem.

 

 

EU Openly Funds, Builds in West Bank to Change Israel-PA Status

Sunday, February 8th, 2015

Hundreds of European Union-funded Palestinian homes, schools and other buildings have dotted the hills and valleys of Judea and Samaria – including Area C, the area placed under Israeli control by the Oslo Accords.

In fact, more than 400 Palestinian houses were illegally built with EU assistance in the area that is supposed to be under Israeli jurisdiction. The EU was a signatory to the international law designating the areas with their respective authorities.

No one has addressed the issue, which has been virtually ignored by the international community until Britain’s Daily Mail publication blasted the issue on its website, complete with incriminating photos and maps.

Jake Wallis Simons, writing for MailOnline, noted that all of the Palestinian buildings, “which have no permits, come at a cost of tens of millions of Euros in public money, a proportion of which comes from the British taxpayer.

“This has raised concerns that that EU is using valuable resources to take sides in a foreign territorial dispute.”

Wow. Points for bravery and sheer brazen audacity to you, Simons. Hope your site’s still standing next week, given the current trends in Europe and frankly, the UK.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to advance with plans to demolish the structures, Israeli media reported Friday. The order came a day after Simons posted his piece on The Mail’s website.

Some 17 such villages can be found in various locations around the West Bank (Judea and Samaria), flying the EU flag and displaying EU stickers and signs.

Brussels-based EU spokesperson Maja Kocijancic denied the construction was taking place, saying, “The EU’s funding will provide training and expertise to help the relevant Palestinian Authority (PA) ministries to plan and build new infrastructure and enable people to reclaim and rebuild their land there. To date, no construction has started yet under these programs. The EU is not funding illegal projects,” she claimed.

When presented with photograph documentation of the actual homes not only completed but those in process of being built, with the EU logos in place, however, the spokesperson declined to comment.

Shadi Othman, an on-site spokesperson for the EU in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, spoke with The Mail on the phone. He told the news outlet, “We support the Palestinian presence in Area C. Palestinian presence should not be limited to Areas A and B.

Othman made the situation crystal clear: “Area C is part of the occupied Palestinian territory which eventually will be Palestinian land. Palestinians have a right to live there, build schools there, have economic development. This is part of the work done to build the future Palestinian state which will live side by side with Israel. It’s an international and EU interest to protect the viability of the two-state solution.

And in case anyone had any doubts about where the EU’s bias lies – or why EU officials were in such a rush to meet with Israel’s opposition leader, Labor party chairman Isaac Herzog, this Saturday on the sidelines of the Munich security conference, consider the rest of Othman’s statement and its implications for the national security of Israeli citizens:

If some people are complaining about this, we should not forget the illegal Israeli settlements that are built on occupied Palestinian territory and are illegal under international law and constitute an obstacle to peace.” (ed. note: italics added)

Rock-Throwing Jerusalem Arabs Attacks Jewish Drivers

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Two dozen Jerusalem Arab rioters attacked Jewish drivers and passengers with rocks Thursday between the neighborhoods of Abu Tor and Maaleh Zeitim.

The mob escaped, as usual, cars sustained heavy damage, as usual, and the victims escaped without injury, which is not always so usual.

 

Violence in PA Explains Why New Arab State Would Self-Destruct

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Armed Palestinian Authority forces clashed with gunmen near Shechem Thursday and also raided the house of a former intelligence chief in another round of violence that has escaped the eye of international media but is the seed of self-destruction.

Thee PA soldiers were injured Thursday at Balata, one the largest hell-holes in the string of so-called refugee camps that the United Nations created in Gaza, Judea, Samaria and Arab countries rather to use as a future threat to eliminate Israel as Jewish state through Arab immigration.

Well-armed gunmen in Balata blocked roads and shot at the Palestinian Authority forces that were targeting drug dealers, who also have a large cache of weapons. Heavy gunfire lasted for several hours, and schools were closed.

PA forces raided a building used by the Palestinian Authority’s former general intelligence chief, according to the Ma’an news agency based in Bethlehem.

Jamal Tirawi, now a Fatah-affiliated member of the Palestinian Legislative Council who lives in the same building and is a brother of the former intelligence official, said the pre-dawn raid violated his immunity as a legislator.

Drug and weapons trafficking is widespread throughout the Palestinian Authority, especially in the camps that are turning into a boomerang for the United Nations, whose universal policy on refugees does not include offspring. It made an exception for Arabs who used to live in Israel and places no limit on retaining the refugee status for all generations, even those who are born today.

The number of Arabs who fled, encouraged by Arab leaders to leave or were chased out of Israel in fighting in the War for Independence in 1948 varies from the original Arab estimate of 300,00 to 700,00 that later was used once it became clear that a higher number could be used for political gain.

U.N. Resolution 194 stated that those “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live in peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss or damage to property”.

The United Nations in 1949 created UNRWA “to carry out direct relief and works programs for Palestine refugees.”

There are anywhere from 4-7 million Arabs living in as “refugees,” including approximately 300,000 in Judea and Samaria.

The IDF often enters Balata to arrest terrorists, but the PA raids on Thursday touched only a small part of web of criminal and terrorist networks that stretch from Bedouin villages in the Negev to Gaza, Judea and Samaria, as well as Arab and Bedouin gangs in eastern Jerusalem, Galilee and several Arab cities in Israel.

UNRWA is the real “occupier” of refugee camps, where crime and violence are a way of life. The villages are a ticking bomb that would explode in the face of the Palestinian Authority if it were ever to become an independent country.

‘How to Stab a Jew’ Going Viral on Palestinian Authority Social Media [video]

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

The “resisters of occupation in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem” are spreading on Arab social media a frightening video demonstrating tactics on how to stab a Jew to death quickly and efficiently.

The 1-minute and 13-second video, as seen below, shows the “teacher” calmly walking up to a “victim,” stabbing him, and walking away.

One of the tactics appears to imitate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) method of beheading.

The guide to killing Jews teaches that after stabbing the victim, the knife should be twisted to maximize wounds and cause death.

The Palestinian Authority and anti-Israel Arabs in Jerusalem do not need terrorist cells when “resisters” use social media to reach hundreds of thousands of Arabs in Jerusalem as well as in Judea, Gaza and Samaria, with a single simple post.

Israel needs to find the source of whoever posted this video and arrest him or them.

All of Israel is paying a heavy price, the price of life, for a decade of conducting “negotiations” with the Palestinian Authority while it has incited an entire generation to hate Jews and then murder them.

Until the Palestinian Authority halts all incitement, and until Mahmoud Abbas starts condemning terrorists in Arabic as well as in English, and until the Obama administration understands that Israel means what it says, the government needs to stop all contact with Ramallah.

Arab stabbing attacks on Jews have increased significantly this year, and every Israeli is a potential victim when “resisters” educate every Arab to be a murderer.
