Palestinian Authority Wants Lieberman Arrested for Incitement

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has demanded that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman be arrested for stating this week that Israeli Arabs should be beheaded if they do not pledge loyalty to Israel

“Whoever is with us should get up to half the kingdom. Whoever is not with us we should take an axe and lower his head,” the Yisrael Beiteinu leader said at a campaign stop.

All polls show that Yisrael Beiteinu will be lucky if it gets enough votes to return to the Knesset, and Lieberman has been all over the political map to try to find supporters.

His “beheading” comment might bring chuckles to some of his die-hard backers but is not likely to attract a single additional vote.

But if Lieberman wanted publicity, he got it, and NBC reported, “A spokesman for Lieberman’s party said the comments were ‘made in the context of presenting the party’s platform on the issue of instituting the death penalty for mass murderers and terrorists.'”

The Palestinian Authority Minister of Foreign Affairs was not interested in excuses, especially those referring to Zionists.

The PA’s official WAFA news agency said that the Ramallah regime stated, “The Israeli Foreign Minister ‘Avigdor Lieberman of ISIS’ should be arrested and brought to justice, after he incited for the beheading of Arab citizens who are not loyal to Israel….

“Lieberman once again advocated his plan to spin off Arab areas of Israel and integrate them into a Palestinian state, in exchange for areas in the West Bank that would be annexed to Israel.

“’There is no reason for Umm el-Fahm to be a part of Israel,’ Lieberman said, referring to the third largest Arab city in Israel.

“‘Those who raise the black flag on Nakba Day in mourning over the establishment of Israel do not belong here, as far as I am concerned, and I am quite willing to donate them to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas. It would be my pleasure.'”

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.



Jerusalem Arabs Smash Light Rail Windows

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Arabs from Jerusalem smashed three windows of the light rail train when it traveled through the Shuafat neighborhood, a hotbed of terrorists, drug and weapons traffickers.

Police officers from the elite Yassim unit spotted one of the terrorists who threw rocks at the train and arrested him, the 0404 website reported.

Arab reacted by staging a riot at a nearby mosque.

Muslims Show ‘Respect’ For Temple Mount with Snowball Fight [video]

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Israeli Arabs, Christians and Jews are no different when it comes to enjoying snow, which is always a holiday in Israel except for those in the Upper Golan Heights, where snow is a routine as sun in the summer.

But a snowball fight among Jews at the Western Wall Plaza is unimaginable. Even Haredim and women did not toss snow on each other on “white Friday,” which also was Rosh Chodesh, when Women of the Wall make their monthly pilgrimage to show they are different from Orthodox men who pray there every day.

Up on the Temple Mount’s Al Aqsa mosque compound the Muslims’ third holiest site, things were different, as seen in the video below.

Perhaps they simply were staying in shape to throw stones at Jews.

Arabs Hate the Zionist Camp

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Yitzchak Herzog and Tzipi Livni can’t catch a break.

The two thought they were being smart when they decided to change the name of the Labor party to “The Zionist Camp”, but Bayit Yehudi candidate Ronen Shoval filed an appeal on Thursday with the judge of Central Elections Committee claiming the party is misleading the public with false claims, and the evidence he brought were the anti/post-Zionist statements of the former Labor party’s own top candidates.

But that’s minor compared to the internal problems the Zionist Camp faces.

JewishPress.com reported that the former Labor party wasn’t using their new name in their Arab advertising, but apparently that’s not enough for the Labor party’s Arab members.

The Arab members of Labor gave Herzog an ultimatum on Saturday.

They told Herzog that all of the former Labor party’s Arabs will vote for another party if the name is not changed immediately from the Zionist Camp.

Knesset Member Raleb Majadla, the Arab sector’s representative in the Labor party said, “We support the Labor party, not the Zionist Camp.”

He added they will tell voters to vote for the Joint Arab List, and will even boycott the former Labor party.

Apparently the Arabs believe that all these years they were voting for Labor, they were not voting for a Zionist party.

Arab Parties to Run Together as “The Joint List”

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

The various Arab parties in the Knesset have decided to run together on a joint list, according to Israel Channel 2 News.

The parties were concerned that separately they would not pass the minimal electoral threshold.

A joint Arab list is expected to get 11 seats according to the polls.

The name of the party will be “The Joint List” or in Arabic, Al Kaama Al Mushtraka

The Labor party (“The Zionist Camp”) reportedly talked to Ahmed Tibi at the beginning of the week about joining the coalition with them.
