Palestine

Palestine“Palestine” is a fantasy-land. That is why we head this category “Palestine?” “Palestinians” are simply Arabs like Jordanians, Syrians, etc. In 2006, the “Palestinians” voted into power, as their leaders, the violent terror group known as Hamas. They ousted the slightly more moderate group Fatah, currently headed by Mahmoud Abbas. But how much more moderate is Fatah? Abbas earned his PhD with a paper on the fiction of the Holocaust. Neither side will recognize Israel’s existence, yet the Western world insists Israel make “peace” with both parties. “Palestine” and the “Palestinian” cause only came about in the mid 1960s when Yaser Arafat put the movement on the map.

What is Palestine?

The declared Arab intention to obliterate the state of Israel, the closing of international waterways to Israeli shipping and the massing of armies on its southern, northern and eastern borders which triggered the Six Day War, are, we are meant to believe, issues of marginal importance and do not count in the balance of Barghouti's personal resentment. Note, too, that the Palestinian fault is only "shortsightedness."

Palestinians Seek State by 2011 - Fox - August 26

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad released a government plan Tuesday calling for the establishment of a de facto Palestinian state by the end of 2011 regardless of the outcome of negotiations with Israel.


The plan faces significant practical hurdles and raised worries that Fayyad was advocating the sort of unilateral actions toward statehood long opposed by the U.S. and Israel. Implementing it would mean overcoming likely Israeli opposition to key elements and Fayyad's own weak domestic political standing, and would also require hefty financial-aid commitments from foreign donors, such as the U.S., European Union and Arab states.

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | John Kerry's trip to Gaza last week was intended to give him a close-up look at life in the Hamas-run territory after Israel's three-week incursion in response to incessant Hamas rocket fire. And it was intended to show that American foreign policy has taken a new direction. Kerry (D-MA) is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. His visit was the first by an American government official since Hamas seized power in 2007 and he became the first U.S. Senator to visit Gaza in at least eight years.

A conservative activist and former presidential candidate says a recent statement by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas should be a clear message to the Obama administration that the Palestinians have no desire to live in peace with the nation of Israel.


Since taking office, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to endorse the notion of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He says, however, that Palestinian recognition of Israel as the national state of the Jewish people is crucial for progress in any future peace talks.

It would be absurd for President Obama to think that Benjamin Netanyahu, who went into politics inspired by the heroic death of his brother, Yonatan, in freeing terrorist hostages in the 1976 Entebbe rescue mission, would ever reward an Iranian-funded terrorist regime by again dividing Jerusalem. He would never shrink Israel as a goodwill gesture to help restart the so-called peace process, not in the absence of a genuine goodwill gesture by the Palestinians and Muslim world of recognizing Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state.


I was so moved by the Netanyahu family and Benjamin Netanyahu's moral clarity at the anniversary of the death of his brother in 1981 that I asked then-Prime Minister Menachem Begin to give him a government job. I said, "I believe this man will be prime minister some day." Begin hired him the following evening.

If President Obama is serious about tackling the ever-elusive goal of achieving peace in the Middle East, he should start his efforts not by focusing on Israel or the Palestinians, but rather a little closer to home: Foggy Bottom.
Either through deliberate neglect or simple ineptitude, the State Department has made U.S. taxpayers complicit in perpetuating the single greatest impediment to Middle East peace: an increasingly radical Palestinian society that despises Israel and embraces terrorism.

Jordanian authorities have started revoking the citizenship of thousands of Palestinians living in Jordan to avoid a situation in which they would be "resettled" permanently in the kingdom, Jordanian and Palestinian officials revealed on Monday.

The new measure has increased tensions between Jordanians and Palestinians, who make up around 70 percent of the kingdom's population.

The tensions reached their peak over the weekend when tens of thousands of fans of Jordan's Al-Faisali soccer team chanted slogans condemning Palestinians as traitors and collaborators with Israel. Al-Faisali was playing the rival Wihdat soccer team, made up of Jordanian-Palestinians, in the Jordanian town of Zarqa.
