Joint Arab Terror Groups Reject Paris Peace Initiative

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Arab terror groups banded together over the weekend to reject the French peace summit launched Friday by President Francois Hollande in Paris.

Close to 30 world leaders, including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attended the conference, which focused on how to advance peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

But neither Israel nor the Palestinian Authority were invited to the gathering. Moreover, although the Palestinian Authority has expresssed its support for the multilateral summit, which allows the PA to once again evade any direct negotiations with Israel over final status issues, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said plainly the conference is simply another repetition of good will put to no use.

Direct talks at home would be a much more efficient use of the time and money spent on this effort, Netanyahu pointed out, since both relevant parties are located less than an hour apart from each other. Nevertheless, Netanyahu has said he is perfectly willing to engage in direct talks with PA leader Mahmoud Abbbas in Paris, if he is unwilling to meet him at home in the Middle East.

PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat, former lead negotiator for the PA, however, praised the multilateral French initiative in a statement that called the conference a “very significant step” that would help end Israel’s “colonization and apartheid policies in occupied Palestine.”

Erekat warned the alternative, if the initiative proved unsuccessful, would be a future of “extremism and bloodshed rather than for coexistence and peace. “We negotiated bilaterally with Israel, the occupying power, for over two decades, but they continue to violate all the agreements that we had signed,” he said.

Erekat did not mention the numerous vicious attacks on Israeli civilians by bloodthirsty Arabs from the Palestinian Authority, including some members of the PA’s own security force. Nor did he mention the PA government’s incessant, multilateral institutional incitement against Jews, Israelis and the State of Israel, all violations of Step 1 of the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization, together with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) issued a joint statement Saturday that said “the ideas suggested by France as an initiative impose a dangerous violation against agreed-upon national rights, especially the right of return.”

In their statement the groups rejected the initiative and all actions that would lead to a return to ‘fruitless negotiations.’ They blamed the world for “increasing settlement building and providing a cover for the Judaization of Jerusalem,” according to the Bethelem-based Ma’an news agency and called on the countries of the world to take ‘serious actions to stop Israeli crimes’ and to end Israel’s blockade of Gaza.

Israel is in agreement with the terrorist groups about the useless outcome of the talks, albeit for different reasons.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said bluntly as early as April, and has continued to say, that “the best way to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is through direct negotiations.”

Netanyahu has voiced his support for seeking the assistance of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi towards this end; El-Sisi is a leader local to the region who understands the nuances of leadership in the two populations as well or better than anyone else. El-Sisi, however, has expressed support for the French initiative, at least for now.

13 Arab Terrorist Suspects Arrested, Terrorist Home ‘Mapped Out’

Monday, December 21st, 2015

Israeli security forces arrested 13 Arab terrorist suspects late Sunday night and into the wee hours of Monday morning.

IDF soldiers captured the fugitives in joint operations with Border Guard Police officers in various places throughout Judea and Samaria.

Israeli engineers and IDF Nahal Battalion soldiers also mapped out the Silwad home of terrorist Mohammed Abdul Rahman Ahmad Ayad, near Ramallah. The operation was carried out together with the Civil Administration in advance of plans to demolish Ayad’s home following the vehicular terror attack he carried out three weeks ago.

In another operation, elite fighters in the IDF ‘Duvdevan’ unit joined the Israel Security Agency (Shabak / Shin Bet) and IDF’s Etzion Regional Brigade. The group entered the Judean Arab community of Deheishe to hunt down terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), accused of leading riots and attacks at Rachel’s Tomb. Those taken into custody were transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Other fugitives among those arrested during the night are accused members of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization.

Shin Bet Foils Massive Axe-Knife Terrorist Attack on Guards in Silwan

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and police have arrested a terrorist cell in Jerusalem and prevented as massive knife and axe attack on Jewish guards at Beit Ovadia in the Silwan neighborhood, across the street from the Old City.

A gag order on the arrests was removed Thursday morning.

Several terrorists were arrested, including a minor who was recruited by Mohammed Nasser Abbasi, active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization. A second PFLP terrorist who was arrested is Morad Mahmoud Kostero.

Abbasi told interrogators that he hid the weapons in his grandfather’s home in Silwan.

He confessed to using the minor to carry out surveillance on the guards and their movements,

Abbas made several firebombs and pipe bombs that he turned over to other members of the terrorist cell for use in the planned attack.

Several of those arrested confessed to being involved in terror in Silwan, including rock-throwing and firebombing attacks and riots.

The plan to use axes to hack to death guards is similar to the gruesome attack that was carried out last year on a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Har Nof synagogue, where the terrorists butchered four men, including three rabbis, while they were praying.

Silwan has become the focus of terrorist attacks on a growing Jewish community that includes the City of David, where Jews have bought houses from Arabs but usually are delayed from moving in to their new homes because of Arab allegations that the sales were false.

PFLP Terror Group Claims Responsibility for Har Nof Massacre

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist organization (PFLP) has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s horrific attack on a Jerusalem synagogue.

The group made its statement to international media during the day Wednesday.

Four rabbis and an Israeli Druze police officer were murdered and at least six others were seriously wounded in the bloodbath.

Uday Abu Jamal and Ghassan Abu Jamal, the two murderers were Jerusalem Arab cousins from the neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar. But despite their membership in an extended family network that had connections with terror, they were not known to their family to be members of the PFLP terrorist organization, said another relative.

Sufyan Abu Jamal told The Independent newspaper based in the UK that the behavior of one of the two, Ghassan, had been “normal in recent weeks.”

A fourth cousin in the family, Jamal Abu Jamal, is a known member of the PFLP and was arrested by Israeli security forces two weeks ago, Sufyan Abu Jamal said.

Ex-MK from Zoabi’s Party Jailed for Meeting Terrorist in Syria

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

An Israeli court Thursday sentenced former Arab Knesset Member Said Nafa to jail for one year for traveling to Syria, an enemy state, and meeting with Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist party official Talal Naji.

Nafa was placed in the Knesset as a replacement for Azmi Bishara, who not only left the legislature but also fled the country after being indicted for selling information to Hezbollah during the Second Lebanon War in 2006. He visited Syria in 2007, the same year Bishara was indicted.

Nafa accused the Israeli government of conducting a witch hunt and said he really was serving the country faithfully by his diplomatic gesture as a liaison between Druze communities in Syria and Israel.

The former MK claimed he never met Nafa. He also has been accused of meeting with Hamas political commander-in-chief Khaled Mashaal, but the Nazareth District court said there was no evidence to prove the charge.

Next in line for jail could be Balad MK Haneen Zoabi, the high-profile fifth columnist who is under investigation for incitement. “Now it’s Zoabi’s turn,” said Likud MK Miri Regev after Nafa was sentenced.

Foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman commented that the conviction sent an “important message that Israel will not allow subversion against the country by people sitting in the Knesset at the same time they are acting to destroy the country.”

The Balad’s party platform opposes Israel as a Jewish state.

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.”

Jibril Rajoub: Israelis Only Understand Kidnapping

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Kayid al-Rol, a senior official of the People’s Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said Thursday that the Palestinian people stand behind their “right” to kidnap Israeli civilians and claimed the 16 year old high school students are “Israeli soldiers,” the Hebrew-language Ynet website reported.

The website also reported that Jibril Rajoub, a ranking Fatah official who is considered close to Abu Mazen, said the “only language Israeli understand is kidnapping.” The PA official said that while he does not support the kidnapping of civilians, it is the only way Palestinians can free their prisoners in Israeli jails.

Of course, Rajoub forgot to mention that the Palestinians in Israeli jails are suspected and convicted terrorists. But that’s a small fact.
