Palestinian Authority: It’s Really About Israel’s Existence, Stupid

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

A semi-official news outlet that carries statements for Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas proclaimed on Sunday his oft-repeated wild incitement that Israel is out to destroy the central Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. And of far more international interest, the site added, “the current Palestinian uprising has its roots in 67 years” of Arab rage over the rebirth of the State of Israel.

The “Palestine Solidarity Network (PSN)” mouthpiece was quoted by the Palestine News Network (PNN) in the accusation against the Netanyahu administration on Sunday of ordering the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount.

Moreover, the PA government confirmed publicly that the issue of “new settlements” is not behind the latest round of Arab violence — nor has the issue of “settlements” been the issue igniting Arab violence over the past 20 years. It is the issue of Israel’s entire existence — as the more direct Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization explains in its forthright founding charter, which proclaims its determination to annihilate the State of Israel at all costs — that the Palestinian Authority finds so upsetting.

“The current Palestinian uprising has its roots in 67 years of being forcibly and brutally pushed out of their lands and homes,” stated the PSN on the homepage of the PNN website.

PNN, the official Internet mouthpiece for the Palestinian Authority, posted the piece at around the same time a flight bearing Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was arriving in the United States for a meeting with President Barack Obama.

“Three months ago, Israeli illegal settlers burned down a Palestinian home in Duma (occupied West Bank), killing an infant and his parents,” the statement went on, promoting a theory that has yet to be substantiated. Jewish terrorists who in the past carried out “price tag” attacks and atrocities against Arab neighbors were caught by Israeli security personnel and jailed within days of the crime.

The Palestinian Authority instead glorifies Arab murderers, naming public squares, streets and children’s summer camp programs after terrorists who carry out attacks against Israelis and Jews. In the case of the Duma incident, it is still not clear who carried out the despicable arson murder of the two parents and baby.

“The incident was followed by an increased Israeli military and settler presence around the Al Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem,” PSN continued, adding, “Under orders from the far-right Israeli administration, parts of the mosque were burned and destroyed. Moreover, Israeli claims of access to worshipping sites are often a first step for more colonization of land and are inevitably met by a wave of rejection and anger.

“More than 70 Palestinians have been killed in the last month by the Israeli military and armed settlers, many of them civilians who were not involved in violent attacks,” the Palestinian Authority website claimed.

Actually, since October 1, there have been dozens of Arab terrorists — many of them teenagers inspired by the endless incitement broadcast over PA government-run media and taught in PA-approved classrooms — who have carried out more than 60 stabbings, six vehicle ramming attacks and five shooting attacks against Israelis and Jews. At least 10 Israelis died and well over a hundred have been wounded. There were four such attacks within a six-hour period just prior to the posting of the PSN article, in fact.

Most of the attacks have been carried out in and around Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem, and the ancient holy city Hebron. Both cities are sacred to Jews and contain sites holy to Muslims as well.

The blood spilled in our cities is a stupid, useless tragedy for everyone. It serves no one except the evil, corrupted Arab leaders who have destroyed nearly every bit of progress their people manage to achieve, and have succeeded in brainwashing the last three of those generations. They sadly managed to produce an ample supply of young expendables who grew up inspired to give birth, raise “martyrs” and give birth again. And now they are bringing up a whole generation of those silly enough and impulsive enough to rush into death without giving thought to the value of life, the value of true honor, as opposed to the travesty of “honor” sold to them by the fakers in their TV screens.

PA Removes Steel Door Jews Installed at Joseph’s Tomb

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has returned to Israel a steel door at Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) after it had been installed by Jews following the latest Muslim desecration of the holy site in Shechem.

Israeli authorities had sent as key to the door to Ramallah, apparently to emphasize that the Palestinian Authority has control of the site.

Ramallah sent back the key, as well as the door, according to Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency.

It quoted Shechem (Nablus) Governor Akram Rajoub as saying that “extremist” settlers installed the door in an alleged violation of agreements that Joseph’s Tomb is under PA control.

Palestinian Authority Arabs have desecrated the site several times. PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas called last month’s arson attack “irresponsible” and ordered repairs to extensive damage from a firebomb attack.

Rajoub said that the regime in Ramallah is refurbishing it “at its own expense because it views this place as having religious and historic importance to the Palestinian society.”


Jerusalem Challenges US with Building Freeze on Arabs as Well as Jews

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

A Jerusalem municipal committee has temporarily frozen all building construction permits in eastern Jerusalem, not only for Jews but also for Arabs, Army Radio reported Monday afternoon.

The office of the Prime Minister insists that it had nothing to do with the Jerusalem City Building and Planning Committee’s decision to freeze construction.

The halt in construction comes just before Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is to visit President Barack Obama to try to mend fences. It also comes shortly after the Obama administration denounced a near-final bureaucratic advancement in plans for building 900 new residential units in the Hareidi Ramat Shlomo neighborhood, adjacent to the Arab Shuafat area.

A source in the municipality said the decision to freeze all building construction permits was made so there will be no question of discrimination.

The freeze puts Washington in a bit of a bind.  

It frequently has opposed building for Jews in eastern Jerusalem, a tacit approval of discrimination in favor of Arabs. This time, any criticism from the White House or the State Dept. would have to explicitly state that its policy discriminates in favors of Arabs.

Eastern, southern and northern Jerusalem, unlike Judea and Samaria, are not ruled by the military and instead have full legal status as any other city in Israel. The  United States and virtually the rest of the world continue to define half the capital as “occupied,” even though more than 250,000 Jews live in areas that were restored to Israel in the Six-Dar in 1967, including the Kotel.

The decision was made during a discussion on the approval of the units for the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood. The same apartments were approved in an earlier bureaucratic five years ago on the same day Vice President Joe Biden step foot in Israel for a visit.

The timing infuriated Biden, and the project has caused consternation in Washington every time another step is approved.

Update: Border Police Shoot 2 Terrorists Who Tried to Stab Them

Friday, October 30th, 2015

The Border Police spokesman said:

Two Arab arrived at the Tapuach checkpoint and tried to stab Border Police officers White House were manning the post. The officers reacted with gunshots and neutralized the terrorists.

Yehuda Glick Attacked 1 Year, 1 Hour, 1 Minute after Murder Attempt

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Rabbi Yehuda Glick escaped injury and even death in a rock-throwing attack Thursday night, exactly one year, one hour and one minute after a Jerusalem Arab tried to murder him.

Glick was critically wounded by four gunshots at point-blank range but made a miraculous recovery.

He was riding last night in a car driven by Rabbi Re’am HaCohen of Otniel, where Glick lives.

The car was pelted in a rock ambush between Beit Omar and Karmei Tzur, one of the favorite places for Palestinian Authority terrorists to try to murder Jews with a direct hit in the face or by causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash.

Glick’s wife told The JewishPress.com that the Arabs had ambushed several Jewish motorists and that a woman in a vehicle ahead of Glick and HaCohen’s was injured.

Glick posted on Facebook Friday morning:

I was saved from rock-throwing. One of the rocks smashed the side window, and I was lucky that the righteous Rabbi Re’am HaCohen was the driver. By his merit, the only damage was to the body of the car.

Blessed is He who has not taken away His loving kindness from me for even a minute.

Rabbi Glick noted that he used Gregorian and not the Jewish calendar to note the timing of the attack because that is the one Arabs used.

IDF Expects Terror to Continue for ‘Weeks to Come’

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

The IDF expects the current wave of terrorist attacks, including rock-throwing and firebombings, to continue “in the coming weeks.” In a letter obtained by The JewishPress.com and sent by a brigade commander to residents under his command in Judea and Samaria, he wrote:

The challenge we face is not a short-term issue and from what I know, it will continue in the coming weeks with the understanding that there are many factors that influence the security situation.

The IDF, Border Police, police and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and civilian security forces continue to work night and day to return to residents a sense of security. The army has significantly beefed up patrols and guard posts on Highway 60, the major artery linking northern Samaria with Gush Etzion, Kiryat Arba-Hebron and the southern Hebron Hills. The brigade commander also wrote:

I promise we will get through this period and, God willing, return security and the feeling of security.

However, government policy is another matter. Residents of Judea and Samaria have lived for years with the same cycle of calm and violence. The calm is maintained when a large number of soldiers patrol the highways. Then, the United States and European Union work on behalf of the Palestinian Authority and demand that Israel “boost the popularity” of Mahmoud Abbas and reduce the presence of soldiers,. The next step is another escalation of violence that gives Abbas another chance to complain that the IDF is interfering with the daily life of Arabs by patrolling the roads and setting up checkpoints.

Major Sweep on Terrorists Nabs Hamas and Islamic Jihad Cell Leaders

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015




Security forces swooped down on terror cell leaders in two major Palestinian Authority cities early Tuesday and arrested wanted Hamas and an Islamic Jihad leader.

Police,  the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), and the IDF carried out the joint operation that netted the arrests in Jenin of two terrorists who were plotting attacks.

The Hamas terrorists was identified as Kis Sa’adi, 24, who is wanted for firing at security forces, manufacturing and planting explosive devices. He also has been involved in weapon trafficking.

Also arrested was Islamic Jihad terrorist, Tair Jaradat, 29 years.

Soldiers and police found and confiscated in their apartment M-16 assault rifles, magazines, a hand gun, stun grenade, night vision means, a holster, two boxes of ammunition and military vests.

Jenin once was known as the “center of terror” in the Palestinian Authority, but foreign and Israeli media as recently as three years ago described it is a model city that had rid itself of violence.

In a village near Kalkilya, located between central Samaria and the metropolitan Tel Aviv city of Kfar Saba, Israeli soldiers and police confiscated an M-16, a handgun, hunting rifles, knives and ammunition.

The Palestinian Authority is committed by previous agreements  to root out terror in urban centers.

Overnight, police and soldiers rounded up 44 terror suspects in Judea and Samaria.
