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.

 

 

2 Women Injured in Arab Rock Attack

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Two Israeli women were taken to the hospital after Arabs threw a rock at their car as they were driving on Road 60. The rock smashed through their windshield.

The attack happened around 5 PM in the Binyamin area.

The two managed to get to Shiloh where they were treated by emergency personnel before being taken to the hospital.

One woman had a head injury and the other was hit in the stomach.

Both women were listed as lightly injured.

‘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.

PA Arabs Clash with IDF Soldiers in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli soldiers in various locations throughout Judea and Samaria on Friday.

On the Temple Mount, rioters were waving the flags of the Hamas terrorist organization during violent demonstrations.

The ongoing violence is just more of the weekly Friday ‘Days of Rage’ across the regions, egged on by Islamic clerics during their Muslim Sabbath sermons in the mosques.

The rioters are protesting Israel’s presence in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem – and more to the point, in the Middle East as a whole. They have been taught from birth over the past three generations via the media and in school texts that Jews have no place in “Palestine” and that one day the Arabs will drive them all into the sea. It is towards this goal they are nurtured from birth to the grave, with little else to distract them in most PA curriculums.

Final status talks as mandated under the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords signed by Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the early 1990s have been entirely set aside.

The PA has successfully managed to evade their obligations under this document by managing to achieve status in the United Nations General Assembly as a non-member observer nation called the “State of Palestine.”

Now European nations are beginning to recognize the entity as an independent sovereign country as well, despite its divided, fragmented nature, without any real boundaries and without having carried out any of its agreed-upon responsibilities.

Meanwhile PA Arab terrorists have successfully launched a lethal, third intifada against Israeli citizens, an ominous sign that is being more or less ignored by the international community.

Man Loses Eye to Arab Road Terror Near Hadera

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

A man lost an eye after he was attacked last Friday by an Arab in a road terror attack on Route 65 near Hadera. The attack was not publicized by mainstream media, nor did police disseminate information to the public about the danger to motorists on the road.

This past Saturday night, the Hebrew-language 0404 website also reported on a gang of Arabs who attacked a couple of Jews walking their dogs in the community of Beit Dagan. The attackers hurled rocks and even citrus fruits at the man and woman as they were walking their dogs in an orchard. The pair released the dogs, who then defended their owners and drove away the attackers.

The potentially deadly road terror attack that took place last Friday, however, came out of the blue — according to the 56-year-old Jewish driver — who told 0404 he was driving at the time along Route 65 near Talmei Elazar, next to Hadera.

The driver, whose name is Shimon, said a car passed his and then just cut him off and blocked him on the road. The Arab then got out of his car, screaming threats and curses, and started to hit him with his hands. When Shimon told him he was calling the police, the Arab pulled out a crowbar and beat Shimon in the face and over the head.

“I lost my eye and I’m still in the hospital,” Shimon told 0404. “I hope the police will take this incident seriously, because up to this point, I have heard no warnings to the public about this kind of terror that can threaten people who are on the roads.”

A staff member in the hospital expressed his own shock that such an event could even take place, regardless of motive.

“I have an infant seat in my own car,” he said, “a first aid kit, some wood treatment and CDs. This Arab had a crowbar in order to harm Jews. I just don’t understand how such a story does not grab the headlines in this country.”

As a matter of fact, police had not publicized the attack at all, despite having received several reports by eyewitnesses to the incident, who called the police hotline.
