We have never understood how Abbas continues to be called 'moderate.'
King Abdullah II of Jordan refuses to extradite terrorist Ahlam Tamimi to the US.
Several days ago, our Prime Minister's indulgence toward terrorists resurfaced. Netanyahu, we learned, is primed to free another 123 prisoners incarcerated in Israel since before the Oslo Accords. Most of them are Fatah members who have been in imprisoned for 25 to 35 years after being convicted of involvement in terrorist attacks in which Israelis were killed. The goal is to woo Mahmoud Abbas back to the negotiating table.
Bulgaria's sensitive relations with the Islamic world and geolocation in the eastern Mediterranean are clearly part of the squeeze in which its leaders now find themselves.
Today, the 20th day of Av, is the anniversary of the murder of our daughter Malki. along with her closest friend and 13 other innocent victims in a Hamas terror attack inside the Sbarro pizzeria
It's just after ten in the morning here on a bright, warm Autumn morning. A delightful, breezy day. Unless you are very determined, and even if you feel very connected to events, it's near impossible to get a meaningful sense of the sheer terror of living within range of the rocket men of Gaza. The thugs of the Hamas-dominated enclave are armed to the teeth with a rocket arsenal that numbers in the tens of thousands... and growing.
Ahmed Daqamseh was given a rousing welcome in his home village in northern Jordan after being freed on Sunday. He expressed no remorse for the killings.
The survey reveals a significant and ongoing passion on the part of a significant overall majority of Palestinian Arabs for Arab-on-Israeli knifing attacks:
You can't blame the French for wanting to minimize their made-in-Europe Islamic terror problem. The problem is with how reality keeps messing with comfortable theories.
Despite President Obama's assertions at the 9-11 memorial that the fight against terror is only against al Qaeda, it was still good to hear him speaking about the enduring nature of a nation’s memory of its terror victims. Here in Israel, we (the bloggers behind This Ongoing War) waged a campaign for years to require the Jerusalem municipality to remember Jerusalem’s victims of terror.
Jordan, despite protestations to the contrary, never had a problem giving Tamimi major public platforms giving her 'celebrity-murderer' status. Will Jordan ever honor its treaty obligations to the US?
How to say this politely? As terror victims, the parents of a child murdered by an Islamist terrorist in the service of Hamas, our experience hasn't brought us to feel that the UN - or really anyone else in the world of major organizations - stands in solidarity with us.
European politics is populated by a multitude of individuals who are hopelessly ambivalent about Islamists.
This same Mr Erdogan, who reserves to himself the right to defend his citizens and his borders and warns malefactors that they should not even dream of testing his country's determination, has expressed himself quite differently when it was Israel that took defensive measures in the face of lethal terrorist behavior that goes on and on.
Reports of a dead baby, a devastated family, and indications of a gloating attacker.
Since we believe Palestinian Arab casualties that result from Palestinian Arab mis-handling or misfiring of Palestinian Arab explosives, guns, rockets, mortars and the like almost never get reported in the mainstream news media, we will be watching to see how much coverage this incident below gets. It appears at this moment on a Bethlehem-based (and somewhat Hamas-hostile) Palestinian news site.
King’s sensitive, delicate words moved me.
Abdullah Barghouti, who murdered our daughter and receives a monthly salary from the PA, is just one example of how the West is funding terror.
While Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal was on CNN, his Gaza-based Hamas colleagues were talking - in the Arabic language - about continuing the fight against Israel until the "liberation of all our lands, from the sea to the river."
The judges who sentenced him expressed regret that condemning Abdullah Barghouti to the death penalty was not an option available to them.
No bomber ever exploded because she or he wants to commit suicide.
To commemorate Remembrance Day, Netanyahu has, so generously, dealt us yet another blow.
So long as Abbas and his cronies rule, there's no hope for tolerance or non-violence from their side
The key characteristic is that many, probably most, of these attacks are done by Arab kids and teens
Jordan has a 22 year-old extradition treaty with the United States, but has decided to repudiate it. We have been writing about the implications of this brazen strategy and would appreciate the help of our readers in giving these posts some wider exposure
Lawlessness in the Sinai is growing and the danger of terrorists taking control is huge.
The Palestinians remain below the age of responsibility; the source of their behavior always in Israel’s actions.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu-Zuhri has a proclivity for turning what most would consider weighty matters into 'non-issues.'
A few months ago Barack Obama declared that al-Qaeda was “on the path to defeat.”
Rule of thumb: It almost never suits BBC editors to use the word terror when describing any act of savagery, no matter how transparently jihadist in nature, when such acts are directed at Israelis.
