UN Security Council May Jilt Palestinian Authority

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority has not yet secured the nine votes needed to approve a United Nations Security Council resolution setting a deadline for Israel to expel 10 percent of its population from parts of Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat told a Nazareth-based radio station Monday that Palestinians have yet to secure a two-thirds majority of the council.

The proposal, which calls for Israel to shrink to less than half its current size is supposed to come before the Security Council Wednesday, where majority approval could force the United States into the uncomfortable decision of deciding whether or not to veto the resolution.

Several European nations are formulating an alternate proposal calling for the establishment of the Palestinian Authority as a country through negotiations within two years.

On the other hand, PA delegate to the United Nations Riad Monsor said negotiations  are “history.”

The Palestinian Authority may have outsmarted itself.

It cannot save face by backing down from going to the United Nations unless  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry comes up some fancy semantics that can take PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas off from a weak and long limb on a tall tree.

Mansour insisted Tuesday, “Tomorrow, it is almost certain that a draft will be put into blue ink ,meaning a resolution will be put on the table of the Security Council.

That will get the Palestinian Authority off the hook with the Arab world that wants to see if it can finally go all the way and in effect tell the United States to take a long walk on a short pier.

But the Security Council is not going to vote on any resolution right away, and, in fact, it does not have to vote on it at all.

If Abbas does not come up with  enough support on the Council when the chips are down, he might be very happy to let Kerry save him for embarrassment and agree to some sort of cockeyed double-talk that makes as much sense as the entire “peace process.”

The Palestinian Authority may will have  a better chance of securing the needed two-thirds majority on January 1, when Venezuela and Malaysia will be new rotating members of the U.N. Security Council. On the other hand Jordan and Chile will leave the Council.

Arabs Riot after IDF Kills Terrorist Throwing Bomb at Soldiers

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arab riots are attacking Israeli police and soldiers at the Kalandia, between Ramallah and Jerusalem, Tuesday morning in protest of the death of an Arab rioter in the same areas last night when the IDF tried to arrest a suspected weapons dealer.

Soldiers entered Kalandia at night to arrest the man and were met with dozens of rioters. When one of them threw an explosive device at the soldiers, they fired back and killed the attacker.

The Arab version is that the man was shot in cold blood and simply was sitting on the roof of his house watching the action.

The Palestinian Authority has damaged itself over the years with a severe credibility gap that firing media no longer can ignore since Hamas was caught red-handed time after time lying to them during the war in Gaza last summer.

The Palestinian Authority made matters worse for itself the past few weeks by claiming that two men were murdered even though autopsy reports, issued by Arab and Jewish doctors, proved otherwise.

The first case was a Jerusalem Arab bus driver who hanged himself. The PA version is that “settlers” murdered him.

The second case was last week when an autopsy showed that a Palestinian Authority minister, suffering from heart disease and high blood pressure, died from a heart attack brought on by stress during a clash with Israeli soldiers. Tear gas that was fired to disperse the rioters contributed to the stress.

Now comes the claim that soldiers, confronting dozens of Arabs going wild and throwing everything but the kitchen at them, decided to turn their attention to a supposed peaceful Arab who was bored and went on the roof to watch the riot.

 

 

 

Jewish Driver Overturns His Car after Hit by Rock-Throwing Terrorists

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Rock-throwing Palestinian Authority Arabs scored a direct hit on a Jewish driver from central Israel, whose vehicle overturn after he lost control of the steering wheel.

He suffered “moderate” injuries and was hospitalize, and the attackers fled the area near the Hawara junction in northern Samaria.

The IDF is searching for the attacker.

For those who think that tossing a few rocks at a car is childish vandalism, I speak from personal experience when I say it is attempted murder, and nothing less than that.

Every Arab, or Jew God forbid, who throws a rock at a passing car is a potential murderer. There have been several incidents in which people have been killed or seriously injured, sometimes for life, after rock-throwing attackers “succeed” and hit them square in the face, or when the impact of the rock causes the driver to lose control of his vehicle.

I have been “stoned” several times but always have been able to keep control of my car.

That is not possible when a rock or building block smashes the front windshield and hits you square in the face. No worse is facing a barricade of rocks strewn across the road and then running up on the shoulders to skirt blockade, hoping the tires won’t be punctured, leaving you a sitting duck for terrorists.

Rock-throwers are not just rock-throwers. They are rock-throwing terrorists intent on murder.

Most of the attackers are young people, often at the time when they are on recess from school for “physical education” to improve their aim.

“Sign him up” – for jail.

 

Where Were the PA Police When IDF Found Two Arabs with an M-16 Rifle?

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

Israeli soldiers arrested two Palestinian Authority Arabs Saturday after discovering they were carrying an M-16 rifle as they tried to pass through a checkpoint in northern Samaria.

The men tried to flee but stopped when soldiers fired warning shots in the air in what is almost a daily event. Sometimes it is knives, sometimes it is pistols, and sometimes it is explosives. This time it was a semi-automatic rifle.

The two men were apprehended in what pro-Arab and anti-“occupation” media call a degrading search.

It would be a lot more polite to take down all checkpoints and simply let people pass through freely, bringing with them all the weapons they want.

They is what they do within the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria because the PA police only go after Arabs who are a threat to their leader, Mahmoud Abbas, the man who is serving his ninth year of a four-year term of office that was to be followed by elections..

It seems that the first and only election in the Palestinian Authority was enough for a lifetime.

Palestinian Authority “security” is on par with its “democracy.” The “two-state solution” that Abbas panders and wants to force on Israel with pre-determined borders to be accepted by the United Nations provides places Israeli security in the hands of the Palestinian Authority, which allows its “civilians” to carry M-16 rifles.

PA May Have Helped Kill Abu Ein by Refusing IDF Medic’s Help

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Sky News footage of the confrontation between the IDF and the Palestinian Authority minister who eventually died shows that Arabs may have prevented his life from being saved because they refused the help of an IDF medic.

Ziad Abu Ein, the “Minister for Settlements,” which actually means the “Minister against Settlements,” was leading a protest march towards the Jewish community of Adei Ad when soldiers blocked the protesters from continuing.

Abu Ein refused to accept the orders from soldiers and yelled at them “dog” as well other expletives. At one point a soldier briefly grabbed him by the neck.

Abu Ein , who had a heart condition and suffered from high blood pressure, then sat down, short of breath.

Previous video footage, almost always  taken by Arab photojournalists who more frequently than not edit their work to frame Israel and make  the Palestinian Authority as the victim, did not show the women soldier trying to administer aid to Abu Ein.

Arabs on the scene refused to let her help, and the Sky News commentator who broadcast the video footage, which can be seen here, said that it raises a question, “Had he been left there with the treatment of the Israeli medic, he may have survived.”

He also noted that there is not video footage to substantiate claims that  soldier hit Abu Ein in his chest with his helmet or with a rifle butt.

Evidence form the autopsy showed that Abu Ein was a prime candidate for death. Evidence from the autopsy showed that more than 80 percent of his blood vessels were blogged, and the refusal to accept immediate help from a Jew from ”occupation army” instead of wasting precious time and hauling him off to a hospital could have led to his death.

The Palestinian Authority has claimed that the autopsy conducted by an Israel, Jordanian and PA doctor  prove “without a doubt” that Abu Ein was beaten, while the official autopsy report states that he died of a heart attack which likely was brought on by stress.

Soldiers stopped the protest march to prevent certain violence that would have occurred had Abu Ein’s group reached Adei Ad.

They used tear gas, a standard riot dispersal method, to turn back the rioters, and Abu Ein very likely may have been short of breath from inhaling the gas.

Almost unmentioned in the news report of the clash and the minister’s death is that he has been using his position of minister to incite riots and that in 1979 he personally set off a bomb explosion that killed two Israelis and wounded 36 others during a Lag B’Omer celebration in Tiberias.

He fled to the United States, was extradited to the United States in 1981 and served three years in jail before Israel cut short his life sentence and released him along with 11,50 other terrorists and security prisoners in exchange for three Israeli prisoners held in Lebanon.

I would write that Abu Ein finally received justified punishment, but that would be considered incitement.

 

 

 

IDF and Palestinian Authority Official to Jointly Probe Death of PA Minister

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

The IDF announced Wednesday that an Israeli and Palestinian Authority official will jointly investigate circumstances leading to the death earlier today of Palestinian Authority Minister against the Settlements, Ziad Abu Ein.

Approximately 200 rioters gathered in Turmus Ayya, near Ramallah, in a march on the Israeli community of Adei Ad. The IDF said,”Forces halted the progress of the rioters using riot dispersal means.

“The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Maj. Gen. Yoav (Poli) Mordechai, and his Palestinian counterpart, Hussein Al-Sheikh, have agreed that an Israeli pathologist will join a delegation of pathologists from Jordan, for a joint examination of the circumstances of Ziad Abu Ein’s death.

“Additionally, a proposal has been made to the Palestinians to establish a joint investigation team to review the incident.”

The Palestinian Authority already has decided that the IDF killed Abu Ein, similar to the alleged “murder” of a Jerusalem Arab bus driver at the hands of “settlers several weeks ago, even though an Arab pathologist agreed that the driver committed suicide.

There is a frightening parallel between Palestinian Authority actions and insane people. What matters are not facts but rather what people imagine.

Palestinian Authority Arabs Say Jews Threw Stones at their Village

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arabs charged that dozens of Jews from the community of Adei Ad in Samaria threw rocks and stones at their homes, vehicles and olive trees in their nearby village late Tuesday night in retaliation for theft of a horse.

Adei Ad residents said that Arabs have been routinely stealing for several weeks.

The IDF has deployed soldiers at the scene.
