Israel to Allow 1,500 Jordanians to Work in Eilat

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Israel and Jordan have agreed to a plan for 1,500 Jordanians to partially replace foreign workers from Asia and Europe to work in Eilat.

The agreement was signed on Friday, Israeli Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency. Until now, Jordanians with permits to work in Israel have been excluded from Eilat.

More permits also have been given e to Palestinian Authority workers to be employed in Israel. This would seem to be good news for the economy in the Ramallah-based regime, but leave it to the left-wing B’Tselem to find a cloudy lining in a silver cloud.

The organization claims that tens of thousands of Arabs from Judea and Samaria are “forced” to seek a living by working in Israel because the Zionist’ occupation stifles the economy, Ma’an reported.

Wages paid by Israeli firms are far higher than those paid by Arab employers.

IDF to Question Soldiers Caught on Film Hitting Arab Provocateur [video]

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority is gloating over footage of soldiers apparently beating an innocent man, but soldiers said that the video does not show a prior scene of the man trying to snatch on their rifles.

The IDF said it the apparent behavior of the soldiers, seen kicking him while he was pinned to the ground, does not “match expectations” of the military.

The incident took place neat Beit El and Ramallah, as it does every Friday. Dozens of people, including children, hurl rocks at soldiers and often cause injuries. Soldiers said that the man shown in the film is a constant thorn in their side and always incites others.

It is not easy being an Israeli soldier in Judea and Samaria. Troops are forbidden to shoot bullets at rock thrower. They are constantly filmed by Arab media who are waiting for a chance to show the soldiers as thugs.

This time they succeeded. Even if the video left out the attempted rifle-snatching and assault of a soldier, the “disproportionate” response darkens Israel’s image that is never going to be positive in the eyes of the media and political leaders.

Below is the video as filmed and edited by Arab media.

Palestinian Authority Unveils TV ‘Fifth Column’ Weapon against Israel

Monday, June 8th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority will launch a new television channel aimed at Israel’s 1.6 Arab citizens whose Knesset Members’ speeches have been increasingly hateful of Israel, Zionism and Jews.

The name of the channel clearly states the agenda of the Palestinian Authority. It is called “F48.” meaning Falstin [Palestine] 1948.

Israeli media reported:

The channel will air mainly cultural and social affairs programs designed to forge a connection between the descendants of the Arabs who stayed in Israel after it was established in 1948 and those who left or were expelled.

The definition of “cultural; and social affairs” varies. In the United States, it might mean baseball, the American flag and the Tonight Show.

In Israel, it could mean soccer, falafel and camping.

Arabs in Judea and Samaria have no national culture because the “People of Palestine” is a fiction. But the Palestinian Authority regime has a culture, the same one of neighboring Arab governments – rampant corruption and hatred of Jews and Zionism.

Israel’s Arab citizens increasingly have been radicalized. The fantasy of “Palestinian” is fertile ground for rabble-rousers, from Yasser Arafat to Hamas, to exploit Arabs as tools for their campaign of destruction, something like Islamic State (ISIS) without the black flag and beheading.

The Palestinian Authority’s single-minded campaign for 30 years has not been to create a new Arab country except as a means to destroy Israel. When terror did not succeed, it tried diplomacy. That didn’t work, and now it is aiming for the United Nations and the International Criminal Court.

That also will fail, but its most powerful weapon is its hate propaganda that has educated a generation of Arabs in Judea, Gaza and Samaria to believe that Israel is an “occupier,” that Jews are “monkeys,” that the Temple Mount never existed and that all of Israel was and will be “Palestine.”

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) during the past several years has arrested hundreds of Arabs in Israel for collaborating with Hamas or Hezbollah. Former Knesset Member Azmi Bashara was allowed to escape the country after having been indicted for handing over to Hezbollah information that helped its offensive wear against Israel in the Second Lebanon War n 2006.

Knesset Member Hanin Zoabi was aboard the Mavi Marmara, the IHH-terrorist ship that was part of a flotilla aimed at breaking the maritime embargo against the flow of terrorist and weapons by sea for the Hamas regime.

The timing is just right for the Palestinian Authority’s new F48 channel, whose footage will be broadcast from Ramallah but will be filmed in Arab areas in the Negev, the Galilee and the “Triangle” near Netanya.

The first program will be aired next week, on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that Islamist clerics exploit to incite hatred and violence against Jews.

The new channel will bring Arab citizens of Israel closer to the Palestinian Authority.

Abbas’ propagandists presumably won’t go to the gutter by airing the kind of venom it shows Arabs in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.

Arabs in Israel are a bit too educated to stomach children’s programs, like one recently aired, that shows a girl calling Jews “barbaric monkeys,” “the most evil among creations,” and those “who murdered Allah’s pious prophets.”

The channel will try to convince Arabs that the Galilee, the Negev and the Triangle all are part of “Palestine,” just as Palestinian Authority maps show that Tel Aviv, Haifa and Eilat are part of its imagined country.

The propaganda will be more effective when viewed by the more uneducated and poor Arabs and Bedouin, especially those in the Negev, and by the small but growing number of radicalized Arabs in the Galilee.

Denmark Pays 32 ISIS Terrorists Unemployment Benefits

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

The Danish government has paid $557,000 in unemployment benefits to Islamic State (ISIS) jihad fighters, who apparently are considered on the jobless list while fighting for the radical Islamic organization that likes to behead their enemies in Syria, which includes just about everyone except themselves.

“STAR [Danish Labour Agency] has thus far received information pertaining to 32 people who, according to PET’s [Security and Intelligence Service] information, have gone abroad in relation to the conflict in Syria while at the same time receiving social benefits,” according to an Employment Ministry document obtained by Danish Radio24syv

A similar report last November revealed that at least 28 jihadists were receiving unemployment benefits from the Danish government but that 15 of them were asked to pay back the money.

Now, try to imagine that a good jihadist will painfully search his conscience, lay down his assault rifle, and rush to the nearest bank – if there are any more in Syria – and send a money order to the Danish government.

Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen, told about the payments last year, told the tabloid BT:

 It is incredibly important that we are not naive.

Apparently they are not totally naïve because at least 115 Danish citizens have left to fight with the ISIS. So hats off to Copenhagen for not paying unemployment benefits to approximately 68 terrorists. Perhaps the Danish government has discovered that the 68 jihadists are getting paid by the ISIS and that the 32 others are not.

Or perhaps their families in Denmark are receiving their loved ones’ monthly ISIS salary checks, which would mean the terrorists are officially employed.

Peter Skaarup, legal draftsman of the Danish People’s Party, said several months ago:

I think that many Danes feel to laugh over that one pays cash benefits to persons not resident in Denmark. These are people who go there and fight in a holy war against Danish forces while they receive Danish cash – it can hardly be worse.

But it is worse, because nothing has changed since November except that now there are more jihadists getting paid.

Sending out checks to the “unemployed” terrorists obviously encourages more Danes to play both sides of the street.

On the other hand, it is a nifty way to thin out the radical Islamic population in Denmark, assuming that most of the jihadists don’t return home alive.

If there is an outcry from other quarters such as the White House, that Denmark is in effect aiding and abetting terror, perhaps President Barack Obama will turn his attention to similar phenomena elsewhere, namely Ramallah.

The Palestinian Authority pays a healthy sum of money every month to terrorists who are serving time in Israeli jails.


Islamic State Jewelry Seized at Ben-Gurion Airport

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Customs agents seized 120 silver rings with Islamic State slogans on them that were meant to be shipped to Ramallah.

The package, sent from Turkey, raised eye-brows in customs at Ben-Gurion airport, who were shocked to see the the ISIS-stamped jewelry.

The package was confiscated, and the Shabak was informed.

Meet: Dating App Verona: the ‘Fun Way for Israelis and Palestinians to Connect’ (and Intermarry)

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

On January 17, 2001, Palestinian Authority Arabs from the Tanzim faction of Fatah killed 16-year-old Israeli high school student Ofir Rahum on the outskirts of Ramallah.

The murder was planned by 24-year-old Mona Jaud Awana from Bir Nabala. Mona pretended to be “Sali”, who met and connected with Ofir Rahum via the Internet.

After many months during which Mona/Sali conducted long, private conversations in English with Rahum using ICQ, she gained his confidence and asked him to meet her in Jerusalem.

When he arrived, she drove him to the outskirts of Ramallah, where the lovelorn Rahum was then shot at close range by members of her terror cell, fifteen times, while Mona/Sali watched.

Mona/Sali, by the way, had been present at the Ramallah lynching, and what she saw there “excited” her, and that’s when she began trolling for Israelis on the Internet to kill them.

This was their last Internet conversation:

ofir 15/01/01 i don’t know if iI have enough to come back to ashkelon

sali 15/01/01 16:04 i told you I will bring you back to tel aviv in my friends car but she will be with us..is it ok coz I am afraid to drive at night

sali 15/0101 16:35 you don’t know how much I am waiting for wednesday but we have to say bye till wednesday

ofir 15/01/01 16:35 bye

sali 15/01/01 16:35 love you dear

I thought about that story this morning, when someone told me about a new dating app that wants to promote “world peace” and intermarriage by introducing Israelis and “Palestinians”.

“Verona is how Israelis & Palestinians can connect and find love,” declares the landing page for the new app on Google Play.

You start by identifying yourself as either Israeli or Palestinian and then starts the assimilation process where the Holy Land can then become one, big happy family.

While Ofir Rahum was was the first association that popped into mind (though presumably far from the minds of the creators of this app), intermarriage was the second association I made (and that definitely was on the mind of the creators of Verona dating app).

Intermarriage is a bad thing, in of itself. But in Israel, it sometimes goes beyond just marrying out.

There have been numerous cases of very young Israeli (Jewish) girls being seduced into dating and then eloping with their Arab suitors.

Once they’re in their husband’s control, in his village, usually their treatment changes radically, they are forced into a life of servitude, and often suffer beatings. Sometimes they’re not even the only wife.

They remain trapped, even as their parents spend their waking hours searching for them.

Their stories are published almost exclusively by Israel’s right-wing press, often after a successful rescue mission by organizations such as Yad L’Achim, when the trapped girl is ready to escape.

IMHO, I suspect the main users of this dating app will be foreign lefty activists who want to identify themselves as “Palestinians” (they’d surely never identify themselves as Israelis) and meet real “Palestinians” (hah!), and some radical left-wing Israelis in Tel Aviv who also want to meet “Palestinians”, but without having to dirty themselves by crossing the Green Line. Let them all have each other.

Unfortunately, I’m very concerned for the young, naive Israeli who might end up needing Yad L’Achim’s services because of this app.

I’d wish these app-maker success, except that I don’t. I hope they fail.

Bethlehem May Charge a Fee for Tourists to Enter

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Bethlehem wants every tourist entering the city to pay approximately, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.

Ramallah also is considering a tourist fee.

Deputy Mayor of Bethlehem Issam Juha told Ma’an, “Tourists have so far been receiving services for free, and now we are considering a mechanism to make them pay a fee which would help us improve public services, including wireless internet, maps and tour signs.

Tourism expert Dr. Hamdan Taha warned that a fee could boomerang, according to Ma’an, because it night drive tourists away.
