When and How the Jewish Majority in Eretz Israel Was Eliminated

Recipe for War:Unilateral Withdrawal from West Bank / Khaled Abu Toameh

June 8, 2012
As before, Hamas's chances of taking over the West Bank are high after the failure of Abbas's ruling Fatah faction to implement significant reforms or combat rampant corruption.

Israel's Defense Minister Ehud Barak believes that Israel should consider a unilateral withdrawal from the West Bank if negotiations with the Palestinian Authority fail to bear fruit.

This Week, Turkey Went A Long Way Towards Becoming An Islamic Republic / Prof.B.Rubin

June 7, 2012
“My people are going to learn the principles of democracy the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men.” — Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

Hardly surprising, deeply upsetting, and geostrategically catastrophic, it’s official. Turkey has now passed over towards being an Islamist state. That turning point is marked by a tiny event of gigantic importance.

Germans Boycott Israeli Products
Although Pax Christi claims it is not seeking a blanket boycott of Israeli products, the NGO's use of vague and sweeping language, plus the fact that there are no special labels to distinguish products made in the so-called occupied territories, does make it a de facto boycott of everything made in Israel.

A prominent Roman Catholic NGO in Germany has called for a wide-ranging boycott of Israeli products.

UNRWA and Refugees: More Glorifying of Terrorism / Arsen Ostrovsky

Jun 7 2012
There has been considerable comment of late, both in Australia and the UN, about the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) in the wake of a legislative proposal being discussed in Washington, and a recent grant of increased aid provided to UNRWA in Canberra. This Update provides some background on the controversy over UNRWA, and the idea behind the UNRWA-related legislative amendment which passed out of a Committee in the US Senate last week.

I just received an email from the editor of a large website, who posted my story from yesterday about the slaughtered apostate.
He writes:The story generated a huge number of commentaries from readers, some of them originating from Muslim Countries.

The Real Purpose of Boycotts / Prof.Michael Curtis

June 6, 2012
What goes unmentioned is that the boycott called for by the Palestinian Authority is a violation of the April 29, 1994 Paris Agreement between Israel and the PLO which expresses "respect for each other's economic interests," and recognizes "the need to create a better economic environment for their peoples and individuals."

Obama:"Palestinians May Not Want Peace Agreement / DR.Rivka Shpak Lissak

June 6 2012
President Obama met with a group of Orthodox Jewish leaders on Tuesday, June 5 2012, and said, among other things:
"President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians may not want a peace agreement."

It took President Obama almost 4 years to understand what we, Israelis, already know for a long time. Even those Israelis, me included, who support a 2 state solution, arrived to this conclusion.

Here are the facts:

Report; Nearly Half of College Students Face Anti - Semitism / Michael C.Duke

January 05, 2012
More than 40 percent of Jewish college students have encountered anti-Semitism on their campuses, according to new findings published by the Institute for Jewish & Community Research.

IJCR’s report, "Alone on the Quad: Understanding Jewish Student Isolation on Campus," found that Jewish students often face anti-Semitism alone, contrary to many other minority groups, and that anti-Semitism is being normalized and underreported on campuses.

Anti-Israel sentiment is creeping into the classroom, as well, the study found. Campus anti-Israel protest frequently targets Jews.

Egypt’s Presidential Election: Moderate Establishment vs. Totalitarian Revolutionaries / Prof.B.Rubin

June 4, 2012
Egypt’s fate, I think, will not be settled by the June 16-17 presidential election (second round). It has already been set by the parliamentary election which has given a large majority to the Islamists as well as the ability to write the constitution. If Ahmad Shafiq defeats the Brotherhood candidate, Muhammad al-Mursi, parliament will simply make a strong prime minister (appointed by the Muslim Brotherhood) and a weak president.

20 Years of Illusion about Islam / Daniel Pipes

Formerly anti-Semitic Muslim Briton says UK media poisons public against Jewish state

As a child, Kasim Hafeez often heard his father praising Adolf Hitler, lamenting only the Nazi tyrant's failure to kill even more Jews during World War II. A son to a British family of Pakistani origin, he grew up in a fundamentalist Muslim community that called for the destruction of all Jews and taught him to believe that that Israel is a terror state.

Where Are the Moderate Arabs and Palestinians / Khaled Abu Toameh

June 4, 2012
Has anyone ever heard of an Arab or Palestinian "Peace Now" group? Palestinians have been radicalized to a point where it is virtually impossible to talk about peace and coexistence. Peace activists, human rights advocates, moderates, journalists and reformers have almost no say and are often denounced as "traitors" and a "fifth column."

In Israel, there are dozens of organizations and parties that openly advocate peace with the Palestinians and the Arab world.

Scribblings: Hamas " Hudna" Offer Revealed / Tzvi Fleischer

May 29 2012
A lot of international commentators have been taken in by Hamas claims to be ready to accept a Palestinian state on the pre-1967 borders as part of a deal with Israel (though most commentators gloss over the fact that Hamas always also demands a Palestinian "right of return" - which would lead to Israel's demographic destruction.) And Hamas has made enough ambiguous noises about accepting the results of a referendum of all Palestinians on a peace deal that some have rushed to argue that Hamas will agree to a permanent two-state peace if such a referendum can be passed.

Salafi Leader: No Freedom in Islam / Raymond Ibrahim

Apostates Must be Persecuted
Last month, Sheikh Yassir al-Burhami, a prominent figure in Egypt's Salafi movement—who also hates Christian Copts, hates Mother's Day, and is an advocate of taqiyya—appeared on the Egyptian show Al Hayat Al Youm ("Life Today"), giving his views on the presidential candidates. At one point, the host asked Burhami which of the policies of Abu al-Futuh—the "liberal" Islamist candidate who lost out to the more "conservative" Muslim Brotherhood candidate—he especially rejected.

How Anti - Western Biases Relate to Anti - Semitisn and Anti - Israel / Aryeh Weinbeg

May 2012
This is report by Institute for Jewish & Community Research provides an exploratory look at the relationship between critical views of the West and negative views of Jews and Israel. The findings reveal consistent and significant differences that shed light on the relationship between existing criticisms of America, capitalism and business, and rising anti-Israel and anti-Semitic views. In many ways, anti-Jewish rhetoric has moved away from the Jew as the subversive outsider and toward a vision of the Jew as the oppressive insider.

Where Did All the Billions of Dollars to the Palestinian Authority Go / Prof.B.Rubin

03 Jun 2012
Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Salam Fayyad says that his regime is short of funds. And meanwhile a reader asks me:

"Can you please explain to me why 20 years after Oslo and billions in dollars in foreign aid, the Palestinian Authority (PA) still has not built modern hospitals? Or rather, why do the donor countries pour money down the PA drain without expecting even some face-saving results?"

Equality for women in work and education; an assurance that Islamic dress will not be imposed; Christian senior political advisors ande possibly even a Christian Vice-President; freedom of protest and expression - the list of pre-election promises made since last Tuesday by Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate for presidency in Egypt, just keeps on getting longer.

The Myth of Israel Backing for Assad / Ahron Shapiro

Jun 1 2012
A myth seems to have developed in some circles that Israel is either backing the Assad regime in Syria, or at the least, is somehow impeding international action against it, supposedly out of fear of what may follow.

Thus, in February, the editorial writers at the Sydney Morning Herald
had the audacity to lump together Jerusalem's interests regarding Syria to those of Teheran.

"Israel shares with its arch-enemy Iran an unease at Assad's looming fall, fearing it will leave Syria in the hands of radical Sunni Islamists."

No Reporting of Palestinian Christians Living in Fear in the West Bank / Daniel Meyerowitz - katz

May 30 2012
The recent plight of Coptic Christians in Egypt has been the subject of significant attention since last year's revolution. The community suffered yet another outrage last week, as an Egyptian court sentenced 12 Copts to life-imprisonment, while acquitting eight Muslims, for their involvement in an incident of mob violence that resulted in dozens of Coptic homes burned and destroyed.

The War Against the Misuse of "Academic Freedom" Goes On

Dear Attorney General Harris and Deputy Attorney General Haytayan:

On May 17, you sent a letter to the lawyers of the Global Frontier Justice Center, informing them that you did not find sufficient evidence to take action against CSU Northridge Mathematics Professor David Klein for misusing the name and resources of his University in posting his "Boycott Israel Resource Page" on the CSUN server.

The head of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called on Arab forces to confront Israel and for the international community to pressure the “Zionist government to withdraw from the land of Palestine.”

The comments by Brotherhood General Guide Mohammed Badie came in a written statement issued May 17 to commemorate Nakba Day, when Palestinians and other Arabs mourn Israel’s creation in 1948.

Questions Facing the Muslim World / Harold Rhode

June 1, 2012
Palestinian political leaders, however, seem to have decided that the rewards from the international community, at least for them, will be greater if they are seen as victims receiving perpetual handouts, rather than as leaders receiving rewards linked to accomplishments. The economic system seems to have evolved into bribes in exchange for promises that are never kept, followed later by the request for still more bribes.

BDS Organization is Anti - Peace in the Middle East / Allon Lee

In the Australian (25/5) academic Philip Mendes analysed the conceptual and practical flaws underpinning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement noting that it "is a by-product of the second Palestinian intifada and the collapse of the Oslo peace process.... It is essentially war by other means...and intended to coerce Israel into surrendering to Palestinian demands".

Leaders of the group say the purpose of Belgium's first Sharia Law court is to create a parallel legal system to challenge the state's authority as the enforcer of the civil law protections guaranteed by the Belgian constitution.
