Hamas is now accusing the PA and Fatah of exploiting the economic crisis in the Gaza Strip to call on Palestinians to overthrow the Hamas regime. Fatah, for its part, is accusing the "dark forces" of Hamas of acting on orders from outside parties to establish a separate Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip.
Just as we now see that the Democrats can’t be relied upon, we shouldn’t delude ourselves into believing that since “we have a sister in the royal palace” – after all, Ivanka and Jared have the king’s ear – everything’s going to be fine and Trump will always do what’s best for Israel.
We should not be afraid of the gentile nations nor give in to their demands.
Since all our souls are of Divine origin, our collective bond with G-d should, by definition, cause us to all feel inextricably interconnected. Why then does achdut seem so tantalizingly unattainable and why does achdut become reawakened when, Heaven forbid, calamity strikes?
History has proven that Jews need more power and influence than other groups to secure their safety. During the 1930s and early 1940s, Jews had morality on their side, but they lacked the power and influence to save six million of their brothers and sisters from systematic murder.
And here is the tactic. While Omar attempts to delegitimize the Jewish community’s allegiance to America, and her coreligionists work to delegitimize the Jewish bond to Israel (even to destroying holy relics dating back 3,000 years), she hides her own history and failings, that she will never assimilate, is not to be trusted, and will work to delegitimize our Constitution with sharia.
The problem of Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism and the CBC’s defense of it is rooted in a larger dynamic of Marxism and Islamism, of black nationalism and terrorism, that has larger implications not just for the Jews, but for Christians, and for Americans, Africans and people around the world.
Middle East policy, in general, and peace initiatives, in particular, must adhere to Middle East reality, as violently unpredictable, complicated and frustrating as it is. They must overcome the well-intentioned temptation of oversimplification, wishful-thinking, misperceptions and short-term gratification, which doomed to failure all previous US, European and international peace initiatives.
In the phrase I appear to be passive, but a deeper examination reveals that I am the active component: it is my active seeking of your grace that ingratiates me in you.
The elite clique of Supreme Court judges and lawyer wannabes, already make up five votes. As I said, self-appointing elites, who veer to the left and hold everyone else in disdain.
There is no evidence that Ireland's "pro-Palestinian" activities are in any way helping Palestinians, who continue to be arrested, tortured and deprived of any viable future by their own corrupt leaders. Most European activities seem actually focused on trying to destroy Israel.
Syrian scholar Firas Al-Sawwah: “Al-Aqsa mentioned in the Koran is not in Jerusalem; we should critically examine our past and some of our religious traditions.”
Many Israelis are willing to tolerate a racist party in the Knesset because they fear that the alternative is a government that will make life-threatening territorial concessions. And when voters think human life is at stake, telling them to “just say no” won’t work.
Looking to Israelis, the congressman says “they are fighting and protecting and advocating for the same ideals, concepts that we believe in, such as democracy.”
Subsuming anti-Semitism under general, bland, catch-all anti-racist wording is a typical Corbyn and British Labour tactic. Instead of condemning the racist Omar, the reworded motion turned her into the victim. Still, the situation here is not as bad as in the UK – yet. It could get that bad very soon.
A Hamas official said that the terrorist organization "has no interest in an escalation" with Israel.
