Official PA Daily Reports that Murders of Jews Brings Joy

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

The official Palestinian Authority daily has been telling its readers how much their constituents are overjoyed at seeing photos of the bodies of murder victims of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated and published the report of the official Palestinian Authority daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

The article stated that the photos of the bodies of the couple, who were killed in front of their four children in the family vehicle, bring “joy” to Palestinians who see the killings as “heroic.”

The new wave of Arab terror has prompted American Jewish leaders to turn to President Barack Obama, who has held a stony silence in the wave of escalating violence.

The State Dept. has issued the usual stale expressions of “concern while urging “all parties” to try to restore calm, in effect placing Arab attacks and Israeli retaliation as equal weights on the administration’s scale of justice.

World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder singled out Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, and said:

We call on the Palestinian Authority and President Mahmoud Abbas to do everything in their power to rein in these extremists who are bent on wreaking havoc on the peace process.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations issued a statement reminding that the Obama administration “provides hundreds of millions of dollars of funding each year to the Palestinian Authority.”

The leaders of the organization added:

When Abbas declares that the Temple Mount is ‘ours’ and says the same of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, he denies the existence of the two Temples and all the Judeo-Christian ties and heritage. Urging Palestinians to rise up to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque leads to the inevitable consequence of confrontation and violence.

We know that President Abbas can impact the ‘Palestinian street’ when he wants to. His failure to do so should bring a cut in funding and the isolation of Abbas until he takes concrete steps….

No society would or should have to tolerate such acts against woman, children, and men attacked while driving, visiting malls, attending religious services, or going about their daily lives.

The Conference also criticized American media for dismissing rock terror with the description of the attackers as “stone-throwing youths” and explained:

These are deadly boulders that have killed and maimed many. In addition, weapons taken from soldiers and knives have been used in recent attacks that took lives and wounded many. At the same time, Israel’s restrained response is often described in exaggerated terms, with the media equating those trying to uphold law and order with those engaged in terror and violence.

PA Hides Islamic Arson of Church with ‘Electrical Failure’

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

This is a “price tag” attack that international media don’t want to report – because it was perpetrated by Arab Muslims and not by Jews.

There now is proof that the Palestinian Authority was lying through its teeth when it claimed that the last September fire at the St. Charbel Monastery in Bethlehem was caused by an “electrical failure.”

The blaze was reported here by the Jewish Press.com.

Contrary to the claim of the Palestinian Authority, an electrical failure was not the cause of the fire for the simple reason that since the building was without electricity due to renovations.

Bishop Moussa El-Haj said that there was a break-in at the monastery two days before the fire and that items were stolen. There also was a fire in the oldest room of the monastery, where furniture was burned.

He told a Christian Arab website:

There is no electricity in the monastery because or repairs and restoration. This fire was deliberately set.

The biggest question that the Palestinian Authority lie raises is why does Pope Francis so enthusiastic about the Ramallah regime and Mahmoud Abbas, who touts freedom of worship while not only trying to prevent Jews from visiting, let along praying, on the Temple Mount but also covers up radical Islamic arson of a church?

Another question is: Why do foreign and most Israeli media go off the deep end when Jews burn a church but keep silent when Muslims do the same?

The answer is that Jews are not supposed to do these type of things, but it is accepted that Muslims do.

It is correct that Jews, the Chosen People, should not commit such acts, but why is it considered acceptable practice when Muslims do so?

Arab Rock-Throwers Injure Baby

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists wounded a baby near the community of Maaleh Levunah in Samaria Tuesday might. Her father, who was behind the wheel, continued driving, and the baby was treated at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for light injuries.

Another motorist was pelted with rocks near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion, after he stopped his car because of an accident.

Near Tekoa, a soldier was treated on the spot for light inquires after being by hit rocks.

A soldier was treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital afar suffering light injuries from rock-throwing at Kalandia, near Ramallah.

Terrorists attacked a vehicle with a firebomb near Neguhot, south of Hebron, but no injuries or damage was reported. Further south, several vehicles sustained damage from rocks at the Zif junction, near the city of Yatta, on Highway 60 between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Arad. The area has been relatively quiet for months until the latest escalation of violence.

Near the Tapuach Junction in Samaria, Border Police foiled a stabbing attack. They grabbed a terrorist when he refused to obey orders to stop for inspection. He dropped a knife, and officers found a second knife in his possession.

At Har Adar, near the security fence, Border Police shot and wounded an Arab in the leg during a riot near the rear entrance to the community.

Palestinian Authority media reported that 129 Arabs were injured in clashes on Tuesday, but the numbers usually are exaggerated and often include people who were hurt in home and work accidents. A spokesman for the Red Crescent told the Ma’an News Agency that soldiers wounded eight rioters with live fire and 23 others with rubber bullets,

It added that the Palestinian Authority “has warned that “attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers indicate the Israeli government is deliberately creating a situation of violence and instability that threatens to spiral out of control.”

Massive Rock-Throwing Attacks South of Gush Etzion

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Palestinian Authority Arabs hurled rocks at dozens of vehicles Sunday morning on Highway 60 south of Gush Etzion, causing damage to several cars but no injuries.

Most of the attacks occurred at Al Aroob and Beit Omar, two hotspots between Gush Etzion and Kiryat Arba-Hebron.

Israeli soldiers guard both areas 24 hours a day, but they are not deployed along the entire stretch of the highway, a maneuver that would require enormous manpower.

IDF guidelines limit soldiers’ ability to shoot at terrorists who throw rocks with the intent of causing fatal injuries or forcing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash.

Fatah Leader Calls on Palestinian Authority to Arm Arabs

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Fatah leader Sultan Abu Enein wrote in a Twitter message in Arabic that the Palestinian Authority should arms Arabs in order “to defend themselves against the occupation and settlers.”

Abbas’ Adviser Urges More Attacks 2 Days after Abbas Renounces Terror

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ adviser on NGOs, Gen Sultan Abu Al-Einen, called for more attacks as Fatah claimed responsibility for yesterday’s attack, Ofir Gendelman, Israeli government spokesman for Arabic media, tweeted on Friday.

The Palestinian Authority has been totally silent since Thursday’s murder of an Israeli couple in Samaria while its ruling Fatah party took responsibility for the terrorist attack that orphaned four small children.

Abbas told the United Nations in his speech Wednesday:

The PLO and the Palestinian people adhere to the renouncement of violence and rejection and condemning of terrorism in all its forms, especially State terrorism, and adhere to all agreements signed between the Palestine Liberation Organization and Israel.

Not only have the PLO and Abbas not condemned the drive-by murder, but Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmed also told Hamas’ Al Quds TV:

The attack is a natural response to the crimes of the settlers and every action has a reaction.

The Martyr Abdul-Qader al-Husseini Brigades, associated with Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades said it carried out the “heroic operation.”

WAFA, the official Palestinian Authority website, did not mention the murders and instead drowned its readers with the usual daily reports of alleged IDF violence against Arabs.

The Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem and considered close to the Palestinian Authority regime, reported the killings but implicitly supported remarks by the Fatah officials that they were a “natural response.” Ma’an told its readers:

Tensions between Israeli settlers and Palestinians have been running high in recent weeks, as right-wing groups have increasingly urged their supporters to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem, which has sparked clashes and spurred political debates around what Palestinians see as a challenge to the status quo in Israeli policies concerning the holy site.

Israeli authorities imposed severe restrictions on Palestinian entry to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the fourth day in a row on Wednesday, while Israelis entered the compound under armed police escort.

According to the Palestinian Authority narrative, Arab rage is a result of Israeli actions.

After the murder, maiming and wounding of thousands of Israelis by Palestinian Authority terrorists the world no longer is buying the Arab agenda.

It is not falling in love with Israel but, as indicated by the absence of the words “Palestine” and “Israel” in President Barack Obama’s speech at the United Nations this week, the international community has run out of energy trying to make believe that the problems in the Middle East start and end with the “occupation,” if they exist at all.

ISIS, the Muslim immigration invasion of Europe, and the Syrian war have eroded the world’s illusions that the Palestinian Authority really wants “two states,” unless one is Fatah and the other Hamas with both of them killing each other in a war to see who can try to annihilate the State of Israel.

NY Times Says Abbas Has Given Up on Establishing PA State

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

The New York Times’ editorial Thursday uncharacteristically criticized Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas and informed readers, “He has effectively given up on ever achieving a negotiated Palestinian state.”

The fact that The New York Times no longer is cheerleading Abbas is extremely significant because the newspaper and President Barack Obama often seem to be one and the same when it comes to Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The editorial did not “balance” its disappointment with Abbas by dumping on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

It called Abbas a “bitter man,” and added:

[He is] increasingly unpopular among the Palestinians, and the Palestinian Authority he leads effectively controls only the West Bank since Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007. His chief preoccupation lately has been on a series of gestures, largely futile, to gain international recognition of a Palestinian state, like the official raising of the Palestinian flag at the United Nations on Wednesday.

The newspaper’s comments on Abbas’ declaration that effectively invalidated the Oslo Accords were equally condemning. It noted “that there was so little left to disown,” an implicit admission that the Accords have been eroded over the years.

The editorial did not point out the Palestinian Authority’s abrogation of clause after clause of the Oslo Accords. The most egregious violation was Abbas’ officially ditching negotiations and turning to the United Nations to recognize the Palestinian Authority as an independent country based on its own territorial and political terms.

The New York Times also wrote that it would be “foolhardy” for Abbas to cut security and economic arrangements with Israel.
