Abbas to Blame Jews’ Prayers for Rain for Halting Peace Talks

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Jerusalem – Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas declared on Thursday that Israel must not be a Jewish state. He supported his demand by blaming Jews in Israel for influencing God to send the snowstorm that delayed visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Kerry was scheduled to meet with Kerry Thursday night, while the Secretary of State’s discussions with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu were postponed because of the early winter storm.

“The Jews inserted special prayers last month for God to bring them rain but used Kabbalistic ideas in a code that encrypted requests that a winter storm would coincide with Kerry’s visit and disrupt his schedule,” Abbas told the official Palestinian Authority news agency.

He also noted that only a few days before the current storm, IDF soldiers stormed the Al Aqsa compound to learn about the alleged presence of the Holy Temples.

“There are too many coincidences, here,” Abbas told reporters in Kerry’s entourage after the Secretary of State landed at Ben Gurion Airport. “This is only a hint of what would happen if we were to recognize Israel a Jewish state. The Jews cannot be trusted. They will use their influence on God to get what they want. There might even be peace, Allah forbid, one day.

“The Jews will stop at nothing to ditch the negotiations that are aimed at two states, a Palestinian Authority state based on our needs for secure borders and an Israeli state with clear and secure boundaries of Dizengoff Square, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Azreilla Mall.”

Abbas also threatened that if Jews do not rip out from their Sabbath prayer books the prayer for the government of Israel and the IDF, he will go to the United Nations to declare a boycott on all synagogues throughout the world.

“I also will appeal to the International Court, after we gain membership there, to rule Jewish prayers a war crime because they ask Him to take vengeance on Israel’s enemies,” said Abbas.

Martin Indyk, who is the American government’s 56th special envoy to the Middle East in seven years and who is Jewish, did not comment.

Another Jew in Kerry’s entourage, Frank Lowenstein, told reporters he would forward Abbas’ demands to CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR). The American Muslim civil liberties advocacy organization has been identified as having ties with Palestinian Authority freedom fighters who blow up Jews to be freed of them. In 1994, CAIR was one of four U.S. organizations of the Palestine Committee of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization and supporter of Hamas.

Abbas also charged that Jews, using their experience during the years they illegally occupied Goshen in ancient Egypt, manipulated the storm so that more snow fell on Jerusalem than on Ramallah.

Israel meteorologist Ahmed al-Hail told The Jewish Press that a heavy rain and snowstorm in early December is rare and that the timing is suspiciously similar to the period of the Ten Plagues, when Moses was the Jews’ senior negotiator with Pharaoh. And we knew what happened to him.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman pointed out in an exclusive interview with The Jewish Press, “Don’t thank God for the storm. I am the one who engineered it. Using my contacts in my native country, I arranged for the Kremlin to organize the storm, which arrived via the Black Sea.”

A senior national religious rabbi told The Jewish Press, “If Abbas has a problem, he can ask the Prophet Mohammed to turn to Allah, but he would be wise to make sure that there is no bomb in Mohammed’s turban. The Mossad works everywhere.”

Livni: I Will Fight to Block Bennett’s ‘Israel Is Jewish’ Law

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

MK Tzipi Livni, Israel’s newest Justice Minister, stressed on Saturday that she would not support the basic law bill “Israel is the national state of the Jewish people,” whose promotion is part of the new coalition agreements with the Jewish Home party.

In the absence of a constitution, The Basic Laws of Israel (Chukei Hayesod) deal with the formation and role of the principal state’s institutions, and the relations between the state’s authorities.

Some of the basic laws also protect civil rights.

These laws were originally intended as draft chapters of a future Israeli constitution, but since over the past 65 years the Knesset has yet to come up with a final, all-encompassing constitution, these laws are being used by the courts as a de facto constitution.

As of today, the Basic Laws do not cover all constitutional issues, and there is no deadline set to the completion of the process of merging them into one comprehensive constitution. There is no clear rule determining the precedence of Basic Rules over regular legislation, and in many cases this issue is left to the interpretation of the judicial system.

The new bill, endorsed so far by at least 40 MKs, many of them Likud members, opens with a paraphrasing of the original Israeli Declaration of Independence:

The State of Israel is the national home of the Jewish nation, where it fulfills its desire for self-determination according to its cultural and historical heritage.

The right for the realization of national self-determination in the State of Israel belongs exclusively to the Jewish nation.

The provisions of this Basic Law or any other legislation will hence be interpreted in light of what is prescribed in this section.

The rest of the proposal includes references to Israel’s democratic system of government, its official language (only one – Hebrew), the law of return, the national calendar, Jewish law as the final arbiter of judicial conflicts, and the preservation of the holy sites.

In short, there’s much in there to upset a lefty. Indeed, a think tank named The Israeli Institute for Democracy, has been warning against it for several years, saying it would disrupt the delicate balance between Israel’s being a Jewish state and a democracy.

Justice Minister Livni told interviewer Nadav Peri: “I’m against the law and will act to make sure it doesn’t pass.”

Livni added that she is also about to serve as chair of the ministerial legislative committee, which sends up government laws for Knesset approval, a new role she took up especially in order “to prevent legislation that would harm the Democrats values of the State of Israel.”

UN Sending Fact-Finding Mission to Jewish Settlements

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

The United Nations’ top human rights body has appointed three independent experts to conduct a fact-finding mission on how Israel’s Jewish settlements affect Palestinians.

The president of the U.N. Human Rights Council, Uruguay Ambassador Laura Dupuy Lasserre, on Friday named three women to the panel, The Associated Press reported.

Dupuy Lasserre said their mission will be to discover how the Israeli settlements affect “the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of the Palestinian people,” the AP reported.

The delegates are Christine Chanet of France, Unity Dow of Botswana and Asma Jahangir of Pakistan.
