Venezuela’s UN Ambassador Compares Israel to Nazis

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Israel was accused in the United Nations on Friday by Venezuela of preparing a ‘final solution’ for Arabs from the Palestinian Authority.’

“What is Israel planning to do with the Palestinians?” asked Venezuela’s UN Ambassador Rafael Ramirez. “Do the Israelis want the Palestinians to disappear? Is Israel preparing a ‘final solution’ for the Palestinians similar to that which was perpetrated against them?”

Venezuela holds one of the ten rotating seats on the UN Security Council.

Ramirez was present at a meeting of the council where Michael Sfard, a member of the far-left Yesh Din organization, described ‘price tag’ attacks by Israelis against Arab targets and the response by law enforcement.

Sfard suggested that price tag attacks are an attempt by Jews to drive Arabs out of the country. Ramirez asked during his presentation whether the State of Israel had a similar agenda.

The comparison, drawing a link between Israel and Nazi Germany, drew immediate outrage from Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon.

“This statement by the Venezuelan ambassador is straightforward anti-Semitism against the Jewish state,” said Danon,” according to a statement by the Israeli mission to the UN. “His remarks are a direct continuation to the Palestinian representative’s statement a few days ago comparing Israel to the Nazis,” Danon said, adding the remarks were “unequivocally condemned” by the U.S., the UK and France.

Ramirez subsequently apologized to the “Jewish People if they were offended by the remarks,” according to the statement.

“The Palestinians are bringing anti-Semitism into the halls of the UN and are legitimizing racists and crass language in the parliament of nations,” Danon noted.

Last month Palestinian Authority representative to the UN Riyad Mansour drew a parallel between the Jewish resistance fighters during the Holocaust and the Arab attackers in the current wave of terror.

The attempt to compare the two was roundly condemned at the time by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations as “offensive, hateful anti-Semitism.”

Palestinian Islamic Jihad Delegation in Iran to ‘Bolster the Intifada,’ Raise Funds

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organization sent a delegation to Iran this weekend to meet with officials on ways to “strengthen the intifada” in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, according to a statement issued by the group.

PIJ secretary-general Ramadan Abdullah told Palestinian Authority media the delegation is slated to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Supreme National Security Council chief Ali Shamkhani over the next several days.

On the agenda were the terror group’s claims that Israel is trying to “Judaize” the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, and the need to keep funding the terror groups in Gaza.

Abdullah lamented “the Arab indifference toward Palestine and its oppressed people” in a statement to the media.

In response, Ali Akbar Velayati, head of the Strategic Research Center of the Iranian Expediency Council, vowed Iran would continue to “support the Palestinian people and continue fighting against terror and the Zionist entity, together with all Muslim states.”

The trip, which appeared to be an appeal for money, comes after a lean year in which Iran bestowed its beneficence instead on a new Shi’ite terror group in Gaza called Al-Sabireen.

More money for Al-Sabireen meant less funding for PIJ and its associate, Hamas, which has instead begun to build a relationship with Sinai Province – the former Ansar Beyt al-Maqdis terror group that abandoned its ties to Al Qaeda and pledged its allegiance to ISIS.

The PIJ delegation met with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, as well as other senior Iranian officials.

“In these meetings the parties discussed the current circumstances prevailing in the Islamic nation and especially… ways to bolster the intifada in the West Bank and Jerusalem opposing the Zionist expansionism,” a delegation spokesperson said.

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

What could have become a massive tragedy has ended in the arrest of a female Arab terrorist in northwestern Samaria Jewish community of Kedumim, about 15 minutes east of Herzliya and Netanya.

The attacker infiltrated the community just before 11 am Wednesday morning, armed with a knife.

She was spotted by a female resident in the community who phoned security personnel as the terrorist approached the entrance to her home.

Security personnel arrived on the scene within seconds and shot the attacker who had the knife in her hand. She was then disarmed, taken into custody and provided with medical treatment.

No Israelis were physically wounded in the attack.

Arab Woman Wannabe Terrorist Caught on Camera

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Maybe it’s because it’s International Women’s Day?

An Arab woman who possibly had thoughts about starting a new life as a jihadist “for the cause” arrived Tuesday morning at the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

The wannabe terrorist got to the site just a few minutes after another Arab woman tried — and failed — to stab Border Guard police officers in the Old City of Jerusalem. That incident did not end well for the attacker, who was shot and ultimately died of her wounds.

But the wannabe terrorist at Qalandiya was immediately caught red-handed on camera during a routine inspection, before she had the opportunity to carry out an attack.

Her bag, which like all items was placed on the conveyer belt and moved through the X-ray machine, immediately revealed its hidden weapon.

A large knife was nestled among the other items in the wannabe terrorist’s bag.

The Arab woman was immediately arrested and transferred to security personnel for questioning.

The knife was held as evidence.

Palestinian Arab Animation Encourages Stabbings, Murder of Israelis [video]

Monday, February 15th, 2016

An animated video uploaded to YouTube on Sunday, Feb. 14, is a glamorized fantasy encouraging young Palestinian Arabs to murder Jews.

The driving music and stylization clearly is intended to entice youngsters to engage in violence and murder, and thereby becomes heroes and receive rewards in the hereafter. The video shows stabbings, shootings and rammings of Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Watch the video and understand that the cycle of violence begins and ends with the Palestinian Arab leadership.
