PLO Warns Alternative to 2-State Solution is ‘Painful Bloodshed’

21 Shevat 5777 – February 16, 2017

The Palestine Liberation Organization has responded to remarks Wednesday by President Donald Trump at the White House with a warning that yes, there is indeed another alternative to the two-state solution.

PLO spokesperson Nasser al-Kidwa told reporters at a news conference held in the Palestinian Authority government headquarters in Ramallah on Thursday the alternative is “painful bloodshed.”

“I’m looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like,” the president said. “I’m very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two. But honestly, if Bibi and if the Palestinians — if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I’m happy with the one they like the best.”

Al-Kidwah equated the president’s remarks with the outright rejection of the peace process in general, rather than the attempt to formulate a new approach to peace, as it was clearly intended to be.

The Hamas terrorist organization that rules Gaza also accused the Trump administration of “disregarding” Arabs in the Palestinian Authority. Hamas called on those residents to unite in a struggle against what it called the “challenges” facing them. The terror group also called on the Palestinian Authority to cancel its commitments under the Oslo Accords, and its recognition of the State of Israel.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – another faction in the PLO – also accused the president and the prime minister of trying to destroy what it called “the issue” of the Palestinian Authority.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas also met this week with CIA director Mike Pompeo, along with PA security chief, Majed Faraj and former PA chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, who is now an executive board member of the PLO, which is also run by Abbas. A number of other senior Palestinian Authority officials were at the meeting as well.

Just a day before the president’s joint news conference with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a PLO representative spoke with White House officials to warn Trump “not to walk away from the two-state solution.” The warning came in response to remarks by a senior White House official who had said earlier in the week that the United States will no longer impose any “solution” to peace on either party, but rather would support whatever deal the two sides reach together.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization said, “If the Trump Administration rejects this policy it would be destroying the chances for peace and undermining American interests, standing and credibility abroad,” according to the A-Sharq Al-Awsat English-language news site.

“Accommodating the most extreme and irresponsible elements in Israel and in the White House is no way to make responsible foreign policy,” she added.

Palestinian Authority’s Abbas Meets CIA Director in Ramallah

20 Shevat 5777 – February 16, 2017

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas met this week with CIA director Mike Pompeo together with PA security chief, Majed Faraj.

Last week Pompeo was in Saudi Arabia and Turkey, meeting with top officials on how to deal with the ongoing issues relating to the Islamic State (ISIS/Dalesh) terrorist organization and the devastating civil war in Syria. Considered a friend of Israel, in the past Pompeo has referred in a tweet to Iran as the “world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism” prior to his confirmation as CIA director.

Sources said his meeting with Abbas went well. The two sides met in Ramallah at the headquarters of the PA government, the Muqata. The agenda was focused on politics, security and the “future of the peace process,” according to the Hebrew-language Ynet site.

A number of other senior Palestinian Authority officials were at the meeting as well, including former PA chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, who is now an executive board member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) which is also run by Abbas.

PLO and PA officials had warned U.S. President Donald Trump this week not to walk away from the two-state solution to their conflict with Israel.

The warning came in response to remarks a day earlier by a senior White House official who said the United States will no longer impose any “solution” to peace on either party, but instead would support any deal the two sides reach together.

Husam Zomlot, strategic affairs adviser to Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, said in response to those remarks during a phone interview with Reuters in Jerusalem, “The two-state solution is not something we just came up with. It is an international consensus and decision after decades of Israel’s rejection of the one-state democratic formula.”

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the PLO, said in a statement quoted by A-Sharq Al-Awsat’s English-language edition, “Accommodating the most extreme and irresponsible elements in Israel and in the White House is no way to make responsible foreign policy.”

But U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters later in the day on Wednesday at a joint news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House that he believes it is possible for the two sides to reach a peace agreement. He reiterated, however, it would have to be reached through direct talks by the two parties. Both sides would have to make compromises, he said.

“I think the Palestinians have to get rid of some of their hate that they’re taught from a very young age,” President Trump said. “They’re taught tremendous hate. I’ve seen what they’re taught, and you can talk about flexibility there too, but it starts at a very young age, and it starts in the schoolroom.

“And they have to acknowledge Israel,” he added. “They’re going to have to do that. There’s no way a deal can be made if they’re not ready to acknowledge a very, very great and important country. And I think they’re going to be ready to do that also.”

PLO Hopes to Pressure ICC Into Probe on Israeli Settlements

5 Shevat 5777 – February 1, 2017

PLO leader Saeb Erekat is hoping this time he has enough ammunition to pressure the International Criminal Court at The Hague to opening an investigation into the legality of Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria.

The United Nations Security Council resolution approved last month stating Israeli communities beyond the 1949 Armistice Line “have no legal validity” is not as open-and-shut a case as Erekat might wish, Israel says.

The resolution was passed under UN Charter Chapter 6, not Chapter 7, which leaves its status cloudy at best.

Moreover, Israel notes that is not a signatory to the Rome statute, nor is she a member of the ICC, and thus the Court has no jurisdiction over the Jewish State.

Furthermore, Israel points out that the so-called “State of Palestine” has yet to come into being, as the Palestinian Authority has yet to negotiate a final status agreement with Israel as it is mandated to do under the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords.

It has no clear borders, it has no central government – the Hamas terrorist organization independently rules Gaza as an autonomous, entirely separate state of its own at this point – and it is fully dependent on the rest of the world, including Israel, for its financial and energy support.

Fake News: Trump Caved to Arab Pressure on Jerusalem Embassy Move

27 Tevet 5777 – January 25, 2017

Several Israeli-based media outlets are repeating a story from an Arab media outlet that the U.S. Embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is “off the table” due to Arab pressure.

But let’s look at the evidence thus far produced and line it up against reality.

The reports claiming the Trump administration has backed down from its stated commitment to move the embassy assert the reason that is happening is because of pressure placed on the new administration by the Palestinian Arab leadership.

A story in the Times of Israel quoted a report in the Arabic media outlet Asharq Al-Awsat. That report mentioned that assurances were given to Palestinian Arab leader Mahmoud Abbas and the PA’s perennial negotiator Saeb Erekat in a meeting held on Tuesday with “David Blum,” of the US Consulate in Jerusalem.

But there is no David Blum in the US Consulate in Jerusalem.

The US Consul General in Jerusalem (serving “Jerusalem, Gaza and the ‘West Bank,’ that is, not Jewish Israelis) is Donald Blome. In other words, there must have been a mistranslation going from Arabic to either Hebrew or English.

A quick search of the actual American diplomat in Jerusalem, Donald Blome, reveals that he was appointed in July, 2015 by President Barack Obama, not by President Donald Trump. Given that Blome’s alleged message of reassurance to the Palestinian Arabs that the new administration was bowing to their pressure, it beggars the imagination that Blome was speaking on behalf of Trump.

There is still more evidence that this explosive “evidence” is, at best, an  unofficial remark from a sympathetic holdover from the last – exceedingly hostile – administration. In an updated version of the report on the matter from the very source of the rumor, there have been significant substantive changes in the report.

The first difference is that the name of “David Blum” no longer appears in the report. There is no longer any name associated with any American government office as the source of the claim. This is what the report now says:

A senior Palestinian official told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper that the Palestinian leadership has received reassurances that a plan to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has been suspended.

The sources added that based on official information, the plan to move the U.S. embassy was no longer under consideration.

While the sources declined to disclose the party that conveyed the reassurance message to the Palestinian leadership, they stressed that authorities in Ramallah were now relieved from the pressure that was caused by such threat.

So Erekat and Abbas’s names are gone, Blum’s name is gone, and the meeting on Tuesday is no longer mentioned.

This latest rumor, especially one boasting that Arab pressure led the Trump administration to cave on a significant campaign promise should be treated as merely the latest ephemera intended to create divisions between the Trump administration and its Israeli and pro-Israel supporters. That, and the effort to make Arab threats of violence seem all-powerful, thereby becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Any statements about whether and when the U.S. Embassy is moved to Jerusalem should only be given credence when made by a Trump administration official whose jurisdiction extends to this matter.

Exposed: Transcripts Show Obama Team Conspired with Abbas, Erekat, on Anti-Israel UN Vote [video]

28 Kislev 5777 – December 28, 2016

Israel’s Channel 1 News’ Middle east correspondent Oded Granot on Tuesday night cited a secret protocol published by Egyptian media with “smoking gun” evidence showing the UN Security Council resolution against Israel was composed in a meeting of Secretary of State John Kerry, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, PA Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat and PA UN envoy Ryad Mansour.


According to Granot, Egyptian media published the secret protocol of the clandestine meeting that took place in Washington Dec. 15, which provides irrefutable proof the anti-Israel resolution was concocted by Kerry, Rice, Erekat and Mansour.

According to the Egyptian report, Kerry and Rice told Erekat and Mansour that President Obama would support a “balanced” Palestinian resolution at the Security Council. They also assured them that Prime Minister Netanyahu had no intention to live up to his commitment regarding a two-state solution.

Kerry advised Erekat the PA should ask for parameters to a forced permanent solution, after discussion with the Saudis, who a few years ago had advanced a two-state based Middle East peace resolution. Rice objected, because, she said, President Trump would kill such a resolution.

“The Trump administration is dangerous,” Rice warned the two senior PA officials, adding that “Trump’s opinions about Israel and the Palestinians would be different from all previous administrations.”

The four officials then discussed Trump’s intention to.

Rice asked Erekat how the PA would react should President Trump move the US embassy to Jerusalem. Erekat told her the PLO would withdraw its official recognition of the State of Israel, dismantle the Palestinian Authority and demand that Israel go back to ruling it directly. He also suggested the PA might demand that Arab states retaliate by cutting their relations with the US.

That last quote, unrealistic as it is, shows the level of grandiose thinking in the PLO leadership, no doubt a measure of their despair.

Both Rice and Kerry advised against any move that would irritate and provoke President Trump, especially returning to suicide attacks on Israel, dismantling the PA, or suing Israel for “war crimes” at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. They said the PA should avoid steps that would “harm the Palestinian cause.”

Of course, if they knew how to do that they would have had their own state years ago.

Both Rice and Kerry also stressed the content of their discussion be kept a secret. But, apparently, that didn’t happen.

Israeli ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer told US Media this week that his government had evidence showing the Obama administration had orchestrated the anti-Israeli UNSC resolution. He said Israel planned to pass on the information to the incoming Trump Administration to disclose or keep it a secret.

But the General el-Sisi regime refused to wait, according to Granot, and published the secret protocol of the meeting Tuesday evening, probably because they were angry at President Obama for making them look bad in the eyes of the Arab world. You’ll recall that last Wednesday night, the Egyptian UN delegation withdrew its own version of the anti-settlements resolution following the personal intervention of President-Elect Trump with President el-Sisi. Now they appeared like Israeli collaborators, as the US and other USC members managed to push the resolution through behind Egypt’s back.

Granot cautioned that the Obama Administration might still use the weeks ahead before Trump’s inauguration to inflict some more damage on Israel. to prepare more measures against Israel. Indeed, Secretary of State John Kerry has announced Tuesday that he would deliver “remarks on Middle East peace” Wednesday, at 11:00 AM, at Foggy Bottom’s Dean Acheson Auditorium.

Analysis: Pro-Terrorist PA Senior Compares IDF Actions to ISIS Terrorism

25 Tammuz 5776 – July 31, 2016

Shortly after Israeli forces last week eliminated Muhammad al-Faqih, who had murdered Rabbi Miki Mark ZL in a drive by shooting, top Palestinian peace negotiator Saeb Erekat issued an announcement condemning the killing of the terrorist, calling it a crime. Hamas has also praised the same terrorist as “Hero of the attack in Otniel.” It should be noted that locals from al-Faqih’s hiding place, Surif village, have blamed the PA security service of informing on the murderer to their Israeli counterparts. Perhaps this explains the PA high official’s protesting too much those actions by Israel.

It also means that come January 17, 2017, the pro-PA Obama Administration will make room for a new tenant in the White House, and at least in case said tenant sports an orange pompadour and employs the word “huge” as both adjective and verb—the PA’s path to Washington would be all but blocked. And so the boys from Ramallah will be using the coming few months to squeeze as much as they can in anti-Israeli gestures from the Obama team. That, too, will necessarily be limited to the period after November 8, up until which Democratic criticism of Israel could cost candidate Clinton the election.

This past week has seen a general increase in the energy and zeal of the PA in pursuing a sharply anti-Israeli line of attack under the guise of participating in the peace efforts, the French peace efforts to be precise. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has absolutely rejected the French initiative last April, insisting that the “best way to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is through direct, bilateral negotiations.” And so, naturally, the PA brass migrated to Paris for the Vacance months, seeking peace on the banks of the Seine with French and US diplomats.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Paris on Saturday to meet with Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, to devise new ways to push the French-invented (imagined?) peace process forward.

Last Thursday, State Department Spokesman John Kirby said Kerry’s meeting with Abbas would be devoted to discussing the “prospects towards helping us create conditions for a two-state solution,” because, as he put it, “there is a possibility there could be additional bilateral meetings while we’re in Paris.” The fact that all these multi-lateral gymnastics are being planned and conducted without the only truly decisive power in the saga was not mentioned.

In fact, in the same spirit of talking strictly to themselves, the French Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying Abbas and Ayrault will meet by the end of the year to work on implementing the multilateral French peace initiative, which is going to feature yet another international summit on the Isralil-Palestinian conflict — so at least 50% of the sides in the conflict would be there.

Meanwhile, Erekat has raised the flame under his attacks on Israel for its audacious killing of Arab terrorists, possibly looking to link in the Europeans’ minds the horror Arab terrorists are inflicting on their civilian population with the IDF and Israel police efforts to enforce law and order in Israel’s cities and on the highways.

“Those who murder children in Europe in the name of religion are no different from those who murder children on Palestinian land,” Erekat told the press on Saturday. Because, as we all know, the slaughtered children in Europe have all taken up knives and Molotov cocktails to attack lone wolf ISIS terrorists.

Both Erekat and Abbas have been demanding that Secretary Kerry furnish them with a timetable for the re-launching of the peace talks, as well as a timetable for the implementation of the one-sided, pro-Palestinian agreements they view as the only legitimate outcome of such talks. “We need a timetable for restarting negotiations, a timetable for implementing agreements, and an international framework to oversee any future agreements,” Erekat insisted.

Joint Arab Terror Groups Reject Paris Peace Initiative

28 Iyyar 5776 – June 5, 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.

Dozens of IDF Officers Protest Rivlin’s Presence at Haaretz-NIF Meeting

2 Tevet 5776 – December 13, 2015

The expression of “what is a  Kohen doing in a cemetery,” where he is prohibited, may apply to President Reuven Rivlin and today’s New Israel Fund-Haaretz conference in New York City.

Dozens of IDF Reserve officers are conducting a protest outside the President’s official residence in an effort to pressure President  Rivlin to cancel his appearance at the conference because the anti-IDF Breaking the Silence is participating.

The officers said that President Rivlin, as a representative of Israel, must boycott the event organized by the New Israel Fund (NIF), coordinated with the Haaretz newspaper, to make clear his non-acceptance of groups such as Breaking the Silence that try to make Israel look illegitimate.

But Breaking the Silence is only the tip of the iceberg. The list of speakers and panelist reads like a “Who’s Who of the radical Left.

The office of the President stated:

The President will deliver his remarks during the conference of the Haaretz newspaper as he does in a variety of conferences organized by media from time to time.

Concerning the facts, it is important to note that in this case, we are speaking about the participation of one of dozens of participants during the day. It will take part in a panel that does not take place in the presence of the president, so there is no connection between them,

As for facts,, today’s event is not a media conference. It is a New Israel Fund conference that Haaretz is promoting and in which it is participating with its finest Israel bashers, such as Gideon Levy and Amira Hass.

Perhaps President Rivlin will not be present when Breaking the Silence speaks, but what about other speakers and panelists, some of whose names read like a Who’s Who of the radical Left?

And the question remains why is President Rivlin appearing and what will he say?

Yes,  he will have the opportunity to show his face to the extreme left-wing of American Jews and non-Jews, as well as officials from the Obama administration such as Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and PLO executive Saeb Erekat.

Public appearances are one of the President’s  most important functions, but why did he choose such a  group, unless he stuns them with a Zionist speech instead of patronizing them?

Here are some of the “Zionists” at the conference:

Arik Wade Ascherman. the Rabbis for Human Rights activist who single-handedly led leftists and Arabs to uproot more than 1,500 saplings in front of shocked elementary school students on Tu B’Shvat several years ago because they planted on land in Judea and Samaria.

The promotional material for today’s conference omits that little detail and states that he “is internationally recognized as a leading advocate for human rights and social justice as religious, Jewish and Zionist obligations,” such as rights for “the Negev Bedouin.”

Other speakers are:

Suhad Babaa, the executive director of Just Vision, ‘an organization dedicated to increasing media coverage and support for Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders working to end the occupation and build a future of freedom, equality, dignity and human security for all through unarmed means.’

Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and president of J Street.

Uri Blau, an investigative journalist for Haaretz, specializing in military and political affairs, corruption and transparency….Blau became the first Israeli journalist to be convicted for possession of classified military documents.

Hagai El-Ad, an Israeli human rights activist, is the executive director of B’Tselem.

Avner Gvaryahu, who  joined Breaking the Silence as a researcher and tour guide.

Another speaker is Arab Knesset Member Ayman Odeh, who last week refused to attend a meeting with Jewish leaders because it was to take place in the same building that is home to the offices of the Jewish Agency?

Other panelists and speakers are:

‘Rabbi’ Jill Jacobs, the Executive Director of T’ruah. [For information on T’ruah and President Rivlin’s joint appearance at the White House, click here.]

Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism.

Daniel J. Sokatch,  chief executive officer of the New Israel Fund.

Dr. Husam S. Zomlot, ambassador-at-large for Palestine [sic] and the executive deputy commissioner of the Fatah Foreign Relations Commission.

Haaretz editor Aluf Benn and a host of his writers will speak and appear on the panels, whose subjects include:

Beyond negotiations: Can the peace process be unfrozen to achieve more than ‘conflict management’?

What’s left: Is there a future for the progressive movement in Israel?

‘Droves of Arab voters:’ Is the struggle of Israel’s Arab citizens to equality the new focal point of the conflict?

Jerusalem burning: Is religion the solution or the problem?

Synagogue and state: Who defines the Jewishness of Israel?

 

Saeb Erekat Says Only ‘a Few People Believe in Two States’ Idea

8 Kislev 5776 – November 20, 2015

Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat said that only a “few people” are left who believe in the “two states” proposal “28 years after the painful historic compromise made by the PLO.”

He blamed Israel for having “continued to destroy the prospects of a two-state solution to an extent where very few still believe that this goal could be achieved. Israeli policies, including land grabs, theft of natural resources, forcible transfer and collective punishments among others continue to derail Palestinian fundamental human rights.”

His statement on “Palestine’s Independence Day” referred to what he called “the painful historic compromise made by the PLO” 28 years ago, which would mean it was in 1987.

That was the year that the Intifada started, giving Peace Now a launching pad to promote the “peace process.”

But that was not the “painful compromise” Erekat meant. He apparently got his math wrong and meant 27 years, which would mean the “painful compromise” was in 1988, first PLO triumph from the Intifada, when the PLO leadership promised the United States that it would delete its principle to destroy Israel and in effect accept two states.

U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in 1975 had refused to deal with the PLO until it accepted his condition in order to eliminate the possibility that a terrorist organization would be involved in peace talks with Israel.

After Yasser Arafat stated. ‘We want peace…we are committed to peace, and we want to live in our Palestinian state and let others live,” the United States was satisfied.

Saed Erekat: Dead Terrorists Are ‘Men Who Lost Hope’

23 Heshvan 5776 – November 5, 2015

What do you call an Arab who stabs Jews to death?

If you are PLO secretary general Saeb Erekat, who was the chief negotiator for the Palestinian Authority when it talked as if there were “negotiations,” the answer is: “They are dead men who have lost hope.”

That is what Erekat told BBC’s HARDtalk in an interview aired Wednesday. He also maintained that “violence is not the answer,” but when the interviewer asked him about the stabbings, some of them in the backs of children and elderly men and women, Erekat could not say a bad word.

Instead, Arabs murder Jews because they have lost hope, all because Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has not “negotiated” non-negotiable demands presented by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Erekat insisted in the interview that there will be a Palestinian Authority country, sooner or later. He said:

For Palestinians and Israelis there is only one option, if not this year, next year, or 10 years’ time is to live and to let live, it’s a two state solution. It’s Palestine to live side by side with the State of Israel in peace and security on the 1967 lines. That’s the only option.

I couldn’t do it through the Security Council; I couldn’t do it through negotiations, not because I failed, because I was foiled by the likes of Benjamin Netanyahu.

However, he said he is thinking about leaving his post at the helm of the PLO.

 

 

PLO Official Saeb Erekat Threatens to Yank Recognition of Israel

23 Heshvan 5776 – November 5, 2015

PLO executive committee chairman Saeb Erekat threatened Thursday that he “would not rule out the possibility the Palestine Liberation Organization might withdraw its recognition of Israel,” according to a report published in Al Quds al Arabi.

There is nothing new about this announcement, other than the bald-faced announcement itself. The PLO “recognized” Israel in 1988, accepted United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 and supposedly renounced terrorism after the United States twisted the arm of PLO chairman Yasser Arafat.

But in fact, the Palestinian Authority government that has operated under the aegis of the PLO always supported terror under the Arafat administration. It subsequently supported terror under the administration of Mahmoud Abbas as well, as documented and translated by the media watchdog organization, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

Last month Abbas awarded the entity’s Order of Merit for Culture, Sciences an Arts to the cartoonist at the Al-Ayyam daily newspaper who has been glorifying terrorist stone-throwing attacks on Israeli motorists.

The Yasser Arafat Youth Center in Jenin this month named a football tournament after the terrorist who murdered two Israeli rabbis and wounded the wife and baby of one of them in a stabbing attack Oct. 3 in the Old City of Jerusalem.

According to a Nov. 2 report in Al-Hayat al-Jadida translated by the PMW, a PA municipality also named a street after the “martyr shahid” Muhanned Halabi, with the town’s mayor saying “This is the least we can do for Martyr Halabi.”

The Fatah faction led by Abbas fanned the flames further, officially bringing soil from the grounds of the Al Aqsa Mosque at the Temple Mount to Halabi’s grave. The Palestinian Authority Bar Association awarded an honorary law degree to the 19-year-old murderer.

The PA Ministry of Education and Higher Education, and the General Union of Palestinian Teachers also held meetings and issued news releases praising Halabi’s attacks.

And to this day, maps of the territory of the Palestinian Authority – “Palestine” to PA residents – are comprised of the entire area of the State of Israel, which is completely erased.

All this, decades after the PLO and PA supposedly had “recognized” the State of Israel and had “renounced terrorism.”

Or not.

So what is really new about the former lead negotiator of the PLO telling the world that he doesn’t rule out the possibility of withdrawing a recognition that never really existed?

Senior Hamas Official: Time Ripe for 3rd Intifada

21 Tishri 5776 – October 4, 2015

(JNi.media) Mahmoud al-Zahar, a senior Hamas official, said that the conditions are ripe for a new intifada against Israel, but, unfortunately, the Palestinian Authority prevents it and uses its security forces to block the emerging uprising. In an interview with Hamas’ website, Al-Zahar said that the only way to protect the Al Aqsa mosque would be with the Arabs in Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem taking up weapons, but, as he put it, the sad reality is that these weapons are being used to protect the settlers.

“The image of Palestinians from the West Bank and Jerusalem throwing stones and Molotov cocktails has dealt a blow to the occupier,” Al-Zahar said.

So far, no Palestinian Authority officials have condemned the murders of Jews by Arabs in the past three days in Jerusalem.

Saeb Erekat, one of the Palestinian Authority negotiators of the Oslo accords and chief of the PLO Steering and Monitoring Committee until 2011, told Radio Palestine Sunday, following the lethal stabbing incidents in Jerusalem: “The events remind us of September 2000. Israel’s isolation is causing it to take forceful measures. Experience shows that you cannot deprive the Palestinians of their freedom by force.”

Erekat added: “We are in contact with leaders in the Arab international world, to prevent a large Israeli operation. We are preparing to convene the Palestinian leadership soon to start implementing the declarations stated in the Abbas [UN] speech.”

Obama’s UN Speech Ignores Israel but Hits Hard at Putin and Assad

16 Tishri 5776 – September 28, 2015

President Barack Obama’s address to the United Nations General Assembly Monday was extraordinary in its total exclusion of Israel and the Palestinian Authority and its hard-hitting attack on the Assad regime in Syria and its ally Russia.

A strong indication that President Obama has finally realized what he and numerous predecessors did not understand was this statement:

There are no simple answers to the changes that are taking place in much of the Middle East and North Africa.

It is not the first time he has said that, but unlike previous speeches, it was not followed up by the usual pie-in-the-sky statements that “Peace is made with enemies.” or “Solving the Israel-Palestinian Authority struggle is the key to bringing peace to the Middle East.

Saeb Erekat, who chief negotiator for the Palestinian Authority and is secretary-general of the parent PLO, was extremely disappointed with Obama’s speech. He said:

Does President Obama believe that he is able to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS) and terror or bring stability and security to the Middle East by ignoring the continuing Israeli occupation, settlements and the ongoing Israeli attacks on Al Aqsa [the mosque on the Temple Mount]?

Obama’s speech was a resounding “yes” to Erekat.

The “occupation” never was a threat to the Middle East, but the United States foreign policy gurus couldn’t figure that out, even when the Arab Spring rebellions upended stability and brought anarchy, termed by the United States as democracy, to Egypt, Libya, Iraq and other boiling pots in Arab Muslim countries.

Years after the United States ignored ISIS, it has become Public Enemy No. 1 and is being used brilliantly by Russian President Vladimir Putin to justify direct Russian military force in Syria.

When Putin told the United Nations he is fighting the Islamic State, he could have been more accurate, Russia may be the only country fighting ISIS.

The American-led strike force has proven to be pitiful, as the JewishPress.com reported here last week on the American-trained Syrian rebels who betrayed the United States and delivered American weapons to Al Qaeda.

The President verbally attacked ISIS but he was extremely careful to be polite to Islam, stating:

Part of that effort [against ISIS] must be a continued rejection by Muslims of those who distort Islam to preach intolerance and promote violence, and it must also a rejection by non-Muslims of the ignorance that equates Islam with terror.

President Obama mentioned “Israel” zero times in his speech. Ditto for the terms “Palestinian Authority” and Palestine.”

The only time he mentioned “Middle East” was in the context quoted above, that there are no simple solutions.

But he mentioned Syria eight times and Russia 15 times with harsh comments that were nothing short of cold war speech.

For example:

The history of the last two decades proves that in today’s world, dictatorships are unstable.

Consider Russia’s annexation of Crimea and further aggression in eastern Ukraine. America has few economic interests in Ukraine. We recognize the deep and complex history between Russia and Ukraine. But we cannot stand by when the sovereignty and territorial integrity of a nation is flagrantly violated. If that happens without consequence in Ukraine, it could happen to any nation gathered here today. That’s the basis of the sanctions that the United States and our partners impose on Russia. It’s not a desire to return to a Cold War.

But his speech was remarkably chilly towards Moscow. He flatly stated:

Russia’s state-controlled media may describe these events as an example of a resurgent Russia… And yet, look at the results. The Ukrainian people are more interested than ever in aligning with Europe instead of Russia. Sanctions have led to capital flight, a contracting economy, a fallen ruble, and the emigration of more educated Russians

Imagine if, instead, Russia had engaged in true diplomacy, and worked with Ukraine and the international community to ensure its interests were protected. That would be better for Ukraine, but also better for Russia, and better for the world.

President Obama claimed he does not mind a strong Russia so long as it works with the United States “to strengthen the international system as a whole.”.

That gave him a platform to plow into the Assad regime Putin and Russia’s presence in Syria and ISIS, which he still refers to as ISIL and which he called ” an apocalyptic cult.

President Obama stated:

When a dictator slaughters tens of thousands of his own people, that is not just a matter of one nation’s internal affairs… Likewise, when a terrorist group beheads captives, slaughters the innocent and enslaves women, that’s not a single nation’s national security problem — that is an assault on all humanity.

Putin has taken the military offensive in Syria, giving him a military and political base across from Israel’s northern border. Putin knows that the Muslim Middle East understands only one word – “force” – but Obama dealt with the issue from weakness because without a military presence, the United States has little ammunition except Obama’s oratory.

He told the United Nations:

But while military power is necessary, it is not sufficient to resolve the situation in Syria. Lasting stability can only take hold when the people of Syria forge an agreement to live together peacefully. The United States is prepared to work with any nation, including Russia and Iran, to resolve the conflict. But we must recognize that there cannot be, after so much bloodshed, so much carnage, a return to the pre-war status quo.

He could have used that as an excuse to throw in something about the “Israel-occupied Golan Heights,” but he did not.

His speech was remarkable in that it exposed how weak his administration has become in international affairs following the debacles in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, which now is under growing ISIS influence.

American influence had been on the decline for years but accelerated with the inevitable failure of the “peace process.” which was focused on the wrong country and the wrong issue at the wrong time.

PLO Protesting Israel’s New Rules of Engagement Against Rioters

14 Tishri 5776 – September 26, 2015

(JNi.media) PLO secretary-general Saeb Erekat said on Saturday that the new Israeli rules of engagement, which permit police to use live ammunition to stop Arab stone and Molotov-cocktail throwers, “dehumanize” the Palestinians. He said the “Israeli government continues to incite against Palestinian lives, with a culture of hate that dehumanizes a whole nation,” Ma’an reported.

Over the past three weeks, Arabs have been waging “popular terrorism” on Temple Mount and in the neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem, with violent riots spreading to other parts of Judea and Samaria. Both Hamas and the PLO have been inciting Arab youths to use violence against Jews. One Israeli was killed on the eve of Rosh Hashanah from a rock attack on his car. Several police and security officers have been injured. And PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stressed in mid-September that that the mosque of “Al-Aqsa is ours, the Holy Sepulcher is also ours. [The Jews] have no right to dirty the mosque with their filthy feet, we won’t let them do it.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel calls on the Palestinian Authority stop its wild incitement to Arab violence. He stressed that all the claims by PA officials, including by its Chairman, about Israel’s intention to harm Islamic holy places are nonsense.

Erekat said the PLO would hold Netanyahu and his security cabinet responsible for “the new crimes to be committed under this new regulation,” threatening that violations of international law under the new rules of engagement would be reported to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

Israeli rights group B’Tselem warned last week that the approval of live fire against stone throwers in east Jerusalem would “exacerbate the cycle of violence with lethal results.” But Minister Yuval Steinitz said that the next few weeks will entirely change the security reality of stone and Molotov cocktail throwing, thanks to Thursday’s decision of the security cabinet. He told Israel Radio that these steps should put out the volcano before it erupts.

Exposé: Settlements Frozen as Netanyahu Strikes Secret Deals with Abbas, Herzog

28 Tammuz 5775 – July 15, 2015

(JNi.media) A series of secret meetings between Israeli and Palestinian officials, representing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas respectively, is being held for several months now, and has led to a series of measures to ease the tension between the two parties, Walla revealed.

Among other things, the ongoing, secret meetings have stopped the Palestinian appeal to the UN and other international organizations, while slowing down construction in the settlements.

A Palestinian source described this as merely “a new assessment of the situation in the region, not an agreement.”

Also: a new understanding is emerging between Netanyahu and Labor leader Yitzhak Herzog regarding expanding the current coalition government (see at the end of this report).

The secret meetings were the forum that forged the Israeli decision to make meaningful concessions to the Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan, as PA residents were given dawn-to-sundown permits to cross the green line in order to worship on the Temple Mount.

Although given for the daytime only, the permits were otherwise unrestricted, and many Palestinians took advantage of them to visit Israel’s beaches and other tourist attractions.

But that concession was just the tip of the iceberg in thawing Israeli-Palestinian relations (mixed metaphor in the original Walla story). This new understanding between the two sides has been in place for three months, driven by both sides’ desire to keep the calm in view of the geopolitical unrest sweeping much of the Middle East.

“The parties understand each other’s needs,” one anonymous source told Walla.

As to building in Judea and Samaria settlements, current construction continues, but for several months now there have been no new permits issued for future construction plans.

An Israeli source told Walla that permits are only being issued for construction classified as “natural expansion,” and nothing more. But the source attributed the slowdown in construction to fear of negative reaction from the international community, rather than the application of a negotiated understanding with the PA.

On Monday, a group of council heads in Judea and Samaria who had met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israeli media that he said to them “it is impossible to further develop the settlements, we need instead to maintain what there is.

Netanyahu reportedly told one council head at the meeting: “You’re worried about your community’s interests, I’m worried about the interests of the entire country.”

According to senior sources on the Palestinian side, further trust building measures between Netanyahu and Abbas are expected soon. Among other things, a senior cabinet minister will be meeting with a senior PLO official overseas. There is an expectation that Israel will unfreeze economic plans in the Israeli-controlled Area C, facilitate Palestinian family reunification inside green-line Israel, and arm Palestinian security forces.

The Prime Minister’s Office said that the report is incorrect. There was no response from the office of PLO head negotiator Saeb Erekat.

The new understanding with the Palestinians is only one of a few revelations of the Netanyahu Administration. The other, which may soon generate a minor earthquake in Israeli politics, is with the Zionist Camp, a.k.a. the Labor party.

The Prime Minister met on Tuesday night with leader of the Knesset opposition parties, Yitzhak Herzog (Labor), to discuss the Iran deal. Netanyahu updated Herzog on the reports given at the cabinet meeting regarding the security implications of the agreement. Speaking to the press, Herzog stressed his commitment to doing everything for Israel’s security in the new situation. Netanyahu said he values very much the agreement with the opposition on the danger to state security, adding that on this issue, relating to the most significant national interest, it is important to show the world a united front.

Saeb Erekat Takes Over as Head of PLO

28 Tammuz 5775 – July 15, 2015

 

Saeb Erekat, who has been Mahmoud Abbas’ key man in so-called negotiations with Israel, has moved into the chair of the secretary-general of PLO, two weeks after Abbas appointed him to the post.

Erekat is the most likely successor to Abbas, who now is 80 years old and is serving his seventh year beyond the four-term to which he was elected in the first and last PA elections.

Assuming there will be new elections some day, Erekat may face opposition from Mohammed Dahlan, who was Abbas’ strong man in Gaza until he became too strong and a threat to Abbas.

Another likely candidate is arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five life terms in prison for his involvement in the murder and injuries of hundreds of Israelis, which makes him the most popular man in the Palestinian Authority.

As head of the PLO, Erekat is its top leader except for Abbas. The PLO is in effect the senior organization to the Palestinian Authority.

Ashraf Khatib, a senior adviser for the PLO negotiations affairs department, told the Ma’an News Agency that Erekat is not being groomed as Abbas’ successor and that he was appointed to head the PLO to help restructure the organization.

Erekat replaces Abed Rabbo, who was fired by Abbas, reportedly because of suspicions that he and Dahlan were conspiring to undermine Abbas and take over the Palestinian Authority.

Erekat has become increasingly belligerent towards Israel. Last month, he recommended that the PLO withdraw its recognition of Israel, try to bring Hamas under the PLO umbrella and escalate the “peaceful struggle” against Israel, meaning “let’s kill the Jews.”

PA’s Saeb Erekat Calls for Withdrawing Recognition of Israel [video]

2 Tammuz 5775 – June 18, 2015

Saeb Erekat, the chief negotiator for the Palestinian Authority, has issued a length report to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) that calls for withdrawing recognition of Israel unless Jerusalem recognizes the PA.

The Ma’an News Agency, based n Bethlehem and with close ties to the Palestinian Authority, reported Thursday:

In a report entitled ‘Determining Palestinian-Israeli relations: Changing, not merely improving, the situation’ the PLO official recommends that the Palestinian leadership consider retracting its recognition of Israel until the Israeli government issues a reciprocal recognition of a Palestinian state.

As seen in the video below, Yasser Arafat in 1988 explicitly said at a Stockholm press conference:

We accept two states, the Palestine state and the Jewish state of Israel.’

The declaration helped succeed in advancing the “peace process” by which the PLO,  which is the superior body to what now is the Palestinian Authority, wrangled hundreds of concessions from Israel without any compromise on its part.

Arafat’s declaration fell short of satisfying American demands that it recognize Israel’s right to exist under U.N. resolutions 242 and 348 that were the basis for a negotiated peace agreement that never happened.

Arafat also renounced terrorism.

Then-Foreign Minister Shimon Peres recognized Arafat’s remarks for what they were and called them a ”cunning exercise in public relations” while lacking “a commitment in reality.”

Plenty of blood has been spilled since then, as is well-known by relatives of thousands of victims of Palestinian Authority terror.

Mahmoud Abbas, who succeeded Arafat after his death, brilliantly brought the Palestinian Authority to the brink of achieving its stated aim, but he has refused to recognize Israel as a “Jewish” state because doing so would make it almost impossible to force Israel into accepting millions of foreign Arabs into the country, leaving Jews as a minority.

Erekat now has gone even further with his report that urges the PLO not to recognize Israel at all, Jewish or not, unless the same recognition is given to the Ramallah regime.

The chief negotiator went off the face of the Earth and said, according to Ma’an:

Efforts [should] be made for Hamas and Islamic Jihad to join the PLO’s Executive Committee and [he] urged the PLO and Palestinian factions to support popular resistance and the boycott of Israeli settlement products.

The PLO official also recommended that the Palestinian leadership play a better role in assisting the Palestinian diaspora in Lebanon and Syria.

At first glance, it seems that Erekat has lost his marbles.

He knows very wall that Israel will not recognize the Palestinian Authority because doing so would be an implicit agreement to turn over the country to Ramallah.

Erekat knows very well that inviting Hamas and Islamic Jihad into the PLO executive would rip the cover off the Palestinian Authority as sponsor of terror.

He probably does not understand that the Boycott Israel movement has reached its peak and is going the way of the Palestinian Authority, a moribund entity.

So what could be going in his mind?

Considering the mayhem in the Palestinian Authority government, which this week dissolve or did not dissolve depending on which official  was the last to speak, Erekat could be jockeying to replace Abbas, who is 80 years old and in the eight year of a four-year term to which he was elected.

Erekat fits the bill to take over the reins because the ambition of any Palestinian Authority leader is exactly the opposite of what the world thinks it wants.

Neither Abbas nor Erekat want to see it become a state because it would collapse like a house of cards, all of which are jokers.

Below is Arafat’s declaration in 1988.

French NGOs and Palestinian Authority behind BDS Pressure on Orange

20 Sivan 5775 – June 7, 2015

A coalition of French NGOs, some of them partly funded by the government, last month published a 51-page document named “Orange’s Dangerous Liaisons in the Occupied Palestinian Territory” to spearhead the campaign to pressure Orange to boycott Israel’s Partner Communications, which markets the Orange mobile phone service brand.

The Palestinian Authority joined the French NGOS to lobby the government and Orange to boycott Israel, the Israel-based NGO Monitor reported.

The NGOs reportedly met with Orphanage officials on May 26 and told them that its business link with Partner endangered its reputation. Orange told the BDS promoters that the agreement for Partner’s marketing the Orange brand expires in 10 years.

NGO Monitor reported:

The authors of the report asked Orange to publicly and explicitly state its decision to disengage and to denounce the human rights violations that Partner is involved in  Israeli settlements in the OPT [occupied Palestinian territories-sic]. In other words, the statements made by the France-based company are a wholesale adoption of the NGOs’ BDS agenda (which is illegal in France).

Following the publication of the report, Saeb Erekat, lead negotiator of the Palestinian Authority (PA), wrote to France’s foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, to denounce the link between Orange and Partner.

Organizations participating in the move to pressure Orange to boycott Israel include the European-based Who Profits, Al Haq, Catholic Committee Against Hunger and for Development-Terre Solidaire (CCFD), FIDH, and Association France Palestine Solidarité (AFPS).

Who Profits, which now is a separate organization, began to campaign against all of Israel’s cell phone companies in 2009 for allegedly being “commercially involved in the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Golan Heights” and “exploit[ing] the Palestinian frequencies and to impose their services on the Palestinian captive market.”

The Who Profits webpage also attacks Partner for sponsoring IDF units in the Golan, Judea and Samaria in the “Adopt a Soldier” project.

The 51-page document stated:

During the attack on Gaza in the summer of 2014, Partner was on the front lines providing material support, cellular services and entertainment to the Israeli soldiers. The company also waived service fees for soldiers carrying [sic] the assault during July-August 2014.

The French government, which owns 25 percent of Orange, granted the Catholic Committee Against Hunger and for Development-Terre Solidaire received nearly $400,000 from France in 2012. The same organization is a member of the Platform of French NGOs for Palestine,

FIDH last year libeled Israel with allegations that it deliberately targeted civilians in the war against Hamas rockets and missiles on Israeli civilians. The NGO is funded in part by the European Union and the governments of Finland, France, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

NGO Monitor added, “Al Haq is funded directly by the governments of Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Ireland, and indirectly by UK, Sweden, Germany, and the UN.”

Its report continued:

Al Haq is a leader of lawfare and BDS against Israel. A main actor in the NGO campaign to file war crimes charges against Israeli officials at the International Criminal Court (ICC)….

Al Haq proposed sabotaging the Israeli court system by ‘flooding the [Israeli Supreme] Court with petitions in the hope of obstructing its functioning and resources.’

The Israeli Supreme Court has identified Al Haq’s general director Shawan Jabarin as ‘among the senior activists of the Popular Front terrorist organization.’

The Association France Palestine Solidarité (AFPS) was funded by the French government in 2012, refers to the “Gaza extermination camp” and states, “It is inconceivable and unacceptable that the ‘Jewish-executioner’ would hide behind the ‘Jewish victim!’” Other AFPS rhetoric includes ethnic cleansing, apartheid state, and “Stop hunting Palestinian children!”

A French court in 2014 ruled in favor of the French distributor of Israel-based SodaStream in a lawsuit charging the pro-BDS group with stating that SodaStream products were being illegally sold in France.

PLO Blows Up Netanyahu’s ‘Peace Process’ Renewal

9 Sivan 5775 – May 27, 2015

The Palestinian Authority and its superior PLO organization have totally dismissed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s overture to sit down and discuss new borders that would leave several settlement blocs under Israel sovereignty.

Haaretz headlined on Tuesday a report that Prime Minister Netanyahu told European Union foreign policy adviser Federica Mogherini last week that he wants to advance the idea of “two states for two peoples.” His suggestion theoretically would be a step towards the expulsion of more than 100,000 Jews in other areas of Judea and Samaria that would be part of a new Arab country.

The Jewish Press.com reported here on Tuesday that Netanyahu simply was leading Mogherini along her rosy path while knowing full well that the Palestinian Authority is not interested in resuming negotiations.

Lo and behold, the Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem, published Wednesday morning an amazing statement by Palestinian Authority negotiator Saed Erekat, who said:

If Mr. Netanyahu wants to have meaningful negotiations ending the occupation that began in 1967, he should recognize a Palestinian State on the 1967 border and honor Israel’s obligations including a halt of settlement construction and the release of the Palestinian prisoners.

There never has been a clearer admission of the Palestinian Authority’s understanding of the word “negotiation,” which it defines as “give us everything we want and then we will talk about, hmmmm, uh, about expelling Israel from FIFA, assuming it survives charges of wholesale bribery.”

PLO official Hanan Ashrawi also condemned Netanyahu’s proposal, which she called a “disingenuous and manipulative exercise of political and legal deception.”

Several knee-jerk nationalists went bonkers over Netanyahu’s suggestion to Mogherini, reflecting a paranoia that ignores political and diplomatic realities of which the Prime Minister is well ware.

Virtually all of the Israeli media establishment, and foreign media are sure to follow, attacked Netanyahu from all sides this week of “dividing and conquering” the Foreign Ministry. However, it is clear Netanyahu wants to retain control because he knows best how to exploit the Palestinian Authority’s total rejection of the Oslo Accords and negotiations, as defined by Webster’s.
