PA Propaganda Video Compares 9/11 with IDF Bombing of Gaza

Monday, September 1st, 2014

The Palestinian Authority “Pallywood” movie industry has come up with a spectacular comparison of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center with the Israeli Air Force’s bombing of a 12-story building housing a Hamas command center.

The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated with English subtitle and published the 20-second video on Monday with the words “Same Terror” emblazoned on the screen as the building in New York and Gaza, followed by billowing smoke

The production is a brilliant piece of propaganda and is convincing to the Palestinian Authority population that knows only what the PA media feeds it.

The video comparison would make anyone who does not know anything about 9/11 that the two bombings really are the “same terror.”

Thirteen years of media messages, that the 9/11 never happened or that the Jews engineered it, have educated a new generation of Arabs to hate Israel and Jews, unlike the fragile co-existence that nurtured Israeli-Arab relations in Judea, Gaza and Samaria from the Six-Day War until the late 1980s, when, Yasser Arafat popularized terror.

The video, of course, does not mention that the IDF warned civilians in the building in the Gaza to evacuate and that no was killed. Approximately two dozen people were wounded. The film also did not tell viewers that nearly 3,000 people were killed in the Al Qaeda aerial attacks.

This is the atmosphere in which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wants to re-start peace talks, which presumably involve a Palestinian Authority that is composed of Hamas and the rival Fatah faction, headed by Mahmoud Abbas.

Zoabi Sings Palestinian Authority Anthem at Hamas ‘Victory’ Rally

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi and her Balad party colleague Jamal Zahalka belted out the Palestinian Authority national anthem at a “victory” rally in support of Hamas near Haifa on Friday.

The two legislators from the same party that bred the traitor and former MK Azmi Bishara, indicted for spying for Hezbollah before he fled the country, told the rally of approximately 2,000 people that they support the “resistance.” United Arab party MK Ibrahim Sarsur, another Fifth Column legislator, also was present.

Palestinian Authority flags were prominent, and a moment of silence was held for Gaza killed in the Operation Protective Edge counter-terror campaign.

The event at the Kabul Regional Council was organized by the Monitoring Committee of the Israeli Arab Leadership, which actively backs Hamas and promotes the idea of the Jewish State of Israel being “replaced with a bi-national state.”

The paper states that the Arab public is willing to see Israel as a ‘joint nation’ for two peoples, but does not recognize Israel’s Jewish character.

Zoabi never missing the opportunity to use Israeli media to show everyone how much she hates Israel, told Channel 2 television that the “resistance” will stop when there is no “occupation.”

She said she couldn’t care less about charges that her constant encouragement of violence is incitement because it is the “right of Palestinians” to fight against the “occupation,” the magic word that justifies anything and everything that can lead to the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

Yisrael Beitenu MK Alex Miller responded that he thinks that Zoabi should be placed in a mental institution, but why should she be allowed to drive crazy people even crazier when she can test the limits of Israel’s sanity?

The poor woman has complained of being persecuted mercilessly for her racism, but don’t forget that the end justifies the means when it comes to backing the “resistance,” one of those non-violent words for violence that Zoabi said she opposed.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein wants Zoabi indicted for her having called Israeli Arab police officers “traitors” and urging people to spit in their faces.

Zoabi and her two Balad party companions recently traveled to Qatar to visit Bishara, who received money for handing over information to Hezbollah while the terrorist organization was pounding northern Israel with missiles in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

Zoabi lives in Nazareth. She is an Israeli citizen. She serves in the Israeli Knesset. God willing she also will serve time in an Israeli jail.

PFLP Leader Khalida Jarrar ‘Deported’ to Jericho

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Khalida Jarrar, the Ramallah-based head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was “deported” to Jericho by IDF troops on Wednesday, according to the WAFA news agency.

The PFLP is a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary leftist organization founded in 1967, the second largest of the groups forming the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), after Fatah.

An Israeli military court ordered her expulsion within 24 hours on the grounds that she poses a threat to public security, the sources said. Jarrar, a resident of Al-Bireh, is a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) and is opposed to talks with Israel.

Jarrar said she refused to sign the document or comply with the order, which she said also included a directive for surveillance while she remains in Jericho.

The entire court order, she commented, is a “violation of international laws.”

Jarrar has been inciting PA Arabs in public speeches over the past month, various Arab media reported.

“The leadership today appears to exist in a different reality from the situation of the Palestinian people in the streets,” Jarrar told Palestine Today in an interview on July 20.

In that interview she denounced PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, demanding that he end any security coordination with Israel, which she claimed keeps “the Palestinian people at the mercy of the occupation.”

BGU Students to Protest Incitement

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Students at Be’er Sheva’s Ben Gurion University of the Negev are planning to “light a candle to illuminate the darkness” and fight incitement against local Arab students.

In an announcement posted on Facebook, the students cited threatening letters sent to fellow Arab students and graffiti declaring “Death to Arabs” that prompted them to schedule the demonstration of solidarity, set for 9:00 pm at the entrance to the university’s dormitories.

The move comes in the aftermath of the murder of a 16 year old Arab teen last week, and in response to the ongoing Arab violence that is spreading rapidly around the country — and sparking a growing anger by Jewish youth who are rapidly becoming sick of being victimized by Arab terror attacks.

Three Israeli teens who were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists on June 12 have yet to be caught by Palestinian Authority forces, although the alleged murderers of 16 year old Muhammad Abu Khdeir were taken into custody by Israel within days.

“All are invited, regardless of affiliation,” the announcement said. “Let’s show the public that students at Ben Gurion University have a clear stand against violence and incitement.

“Such actions undermine the most basic foundations of democracy and we must condemn them wherever they occur – especially when they occur at home, under our very noses.”

This is particularly relevant at BGU, inasmuch as the university has been extremely proactive in programs to integrate Bedouin students with Jews and others. BGU has been at the forefront of the educational system to help advance the education of Bedouin children and promote higher education in the Bedouin world. The university has the highest Bedouin-Jewish student ratio in the country.

Moreover, Jewish communities in the Negev – most of which are small are located quite far apart from each other – likewise live with the approximately 250,000 Israeli Bedouin who currently populate the Negev.

Probe to be Launched Against MK Hanin Zoabi?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Will the State of Israel at last investigate the actions of MK Hanin Zoabi? The decision is up to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein and State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan.

But if they give a green light, police have recommended the government take a look into whether MK Hanin Zoabi has crossed the line into criminal incitement with her constant barbs against the State of Israel.

The straw that may have broken the camel’s back, finally, was an interview Zoabi gave – and a follow-up – in the wake of the terrorist kidnapping of three yeshiva boys who were hitchhiking home from Gush Etzion on June 12. Zoabi declared on TLV1 Radio that the kidnappers – discovered by Israeli intelligence to irrefutably to have been members of the Hamas terrorist organization – were “not terrorists.”

Instead, Zoabi declared, “They are not terrorists. I do not agree with you. They see no other way to change their reality and have to restort to these measures until Israel sobers up and feels the suffering of the others.”

In fact, she later added that perhaps it was Israel’s Defense Forces who were the terrorists, and maybe the boys weren’t kidnapped at all. She then accused the Palestinian Authority security forces of “treason” for cooperating with Israel to search for the kidnapped boys.

Knesset members from one end of the political spectrum to the other condemned her remarks with many calling for her dismissal – but Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein pointed out that he has no recourse to do so under Israeli law.

Zoabi has often made remarks — and acted — in ways that are more in line with representing the interests of the Palestinian Authority than those of the State of Israel, in whose parliament she participates.

In 2010 she supported and even participated in an illegal flotilla intended to violate Israel’s legal boundaries and break Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza. That blockade is a defense against terrorist imports of weapons and ammunition that are used in attacks on civilians and IDF soldiers.

She has also been photographed in past years at unauthorized meetings with Hamas officials from Gaza.

The participation of an Israeli parliamentarian whose loyalty is questionable is deeply troubling because as a member of the government, she automatically has access to highly sensitive security information.

Several years ago, her predecessor in the Balad party, former MK Azmi Bishara, fled the country just prior to being charged with treason. Bishara was suspected of receiving large sums of money in exchange for handing over information on sensitive military sites and other security information to the enemy during the 2006 Second Lebanon War. He has since traveled from one enemy Arab nation to the next, broadcasting poisonous lectures against the State of Israel and recruiting terrorists for attacks against the country. For a long time he also managed to also draw a Knesset member’s pension for his time served as a legislator, since he succeeded in fleeing abroad before ever being charged with a crime.

Police Arrest Pregnant Yitzhar Woman for Inciting Against IDF Soldiers

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

In the hours before dawn on Wednesday, Israel Police awakened and arrested an eight-month pregnant woman in Yitzhar on suspicion of incitement to violence against security forces.

The woman, age 22, had allegedly advocated throwing rocks at Jews “even if the rock causes the death of a soldier” during discussions in an online Yitzhar residents’ email forum called “Yitzharniks.”

A second, 17-year-old resident also commented there is “no halachic problem in killing a soldier during a nighttime eviction” since according to halacha (Jewish law) one may kill anyone breaking and entering, thus posing a possible threat to life.

The conversation containing the incriminating comments was apparently forwarded to police and IDF Central Command by one of the participants, according to a report published by the Hebrew daily Yediot Acharanot.

The newspaper also interviewed the young woman’s mother, who commented, “The young generation is tired of walking around crouched and afraid. My daughter told me in conversation that just like Arab women walk around freely in Israel, there’s no reason that a Jewish women shouldn’t be able to as well… My daughter isn’t stupid. She’ll take responsibility for what she wrote even if she’s wrong.”

The opinion is not unanimous, however, despite a violent incident last month in which residents expressed anger at the demolition of buildings near the outskirts of the Jewish community, located in Samaria (Shomron).

“We have denounced this kind of talk in the past and will do so in future as well,” Yitzhar community spokesperson Ezri Tuvi told media in a statement. “This involves a minor and a woman whose emotions caused their tongues to slip and who already retracted their words.

“On the other hand, we demand the media fully denounce all talk of violence and incitement to hatred and physical harm against the settler public.”

Leftist Yesh Atid chairman and Finance Minister Yair Lapid responded that “Words easily turn into deeds. Some of Yitzhar’s residents have already proven that they have no limits or red lines. A threat to harm IDF soldiers is an action against the state’s sovereignty and against a hallowed basic value of the State of Israel.”

Research Exposes State Dept. Lie that PA Textbooks Do not Incite

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

A study that translated 150 new Palestinian Authority textbooks used by a U.N. educational body exposes the lies in a former U.S. State Dept. funded study that the PA school system is not a source of incitement against Israel.

The Near East Policy Research Center study reveals that the textbooks say Jews have no rights to Israel, including to Jewish holy sites, and are not considered legitimate residents of the country. The name “Israel” appears less than a handful of times on the textbooks’ maps and is usually replaced with Palestine, and areas inside pre-1967 Israel are described exclusively as Palestinian.

The Near East Policy Research Center sent a letter to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which runs 250 schools in Gaza and 100 in the West Bank, asking it to correct the deficiencies in the textbooks.

The findings are a confirmation of previous reports, including those by Palestinian Media Watch, that despite Obama administration claims that the Palestinian Authority has curbed incitement, its school system increasingly spews out hate and teaches children that Israel should not exist.

Barely one year ago, a different study concluded that anti-Israel incitement was far less than reported by critics.

And guess who funded the in-depth study.

None other than the anti-Israeli zombies running around the U.S. State Dept., which has spent billions of dollars the past 40 years to create a fiction that the “Occupation” is the cause and source of anti-Israel incitement.

A State Dept. official, speaking anonymously because of the sensitivity” of the issue but described by JTA as “an official who works closely with mainstream Jewish organizations,” proudly stated last year  that the conclusion “obviously cuts down one of the pegs and a linchpin in the argument that the Israel government makes, that the Palestinian Authority is teaching hatred to their kids.”

The study was called “Victims of our own Narratives?” and praised both Israel and the Palestinian Authority for publishing textbooks virtually free of “dehumanizing and demonizing characterizations of the other.”

The State Dept. shelled out your money for the survey by a group called the Council of Religious Institutions in the Holy Land, a multifaith body that aims “to prevent religion from being used as a source of conflict, and to promote mutual respect,” according to its website. It claims to be comprised of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate, the Palestinian Islamic Waqf, and the heads of Christian churches in Israel and the West Bank.

However, a closer look at the group discloses who really is running it – the dean of a church in the anti-Israeli Church of Norway and an Arab whom the website says “grew up in the holy – yet divided – city of Jerusalem.”

That explains the survey’s conclusions, far from the truth.

One of the Israeli members of the study, Arnon Groiss, said he has reservations about the methodology and could not attach his name to the final report, which he said he has not seen, JTA reported last year..

The State Dept.-funded study was a sleight of hand to produce misleading conclusions. The research compared Israeli and Palestinian Authority textbooks describing each other in a positive or critical light.

Yale University psychiatry professor Bruce Wexler, who led the survey team, made “comparisons between promotion of education for peace on the one side and education that calls for the annihilation of the other side,” said Yossi Kuperwasser, the director of Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs. “It’s like comparing apples and giraffes.”

A statement from the Ministry of Strategic Affairs picks out passages in Palestinian textbooks it says the study ignores; many of them implicitly negate Israel by referring or depicting the entire territory as “Palestine.”
