How Palestinians Silence Palestinians

editor 14 February 2018

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. Mohammed Al-Dayeh has been under interrogation on suspicion of establishing and managing two Facebook pages — “Sons of the Martyrs” and “No to Corruption.” The Palestinian Authority claims that both accounts were used to wage a smear campaign against top Palestinian officials and accuse them of financial and administrative corruption. There is only one small problem regarding the charges against Al-Dayeh: The man cannot read or write, and as such there is no way he could have posted the offensive remarks on Facebook.

Time for the US to walk away from the PLO

editor 12 February 2018

By Caroline Glick.. On Tuesday (January 30, 2018) in Bethlehem, the Palestinians demonstrated the choice the Americans now face in their dealings with Fatah – the supposedly moderate PLO faction that controls the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. President Donald Trump and his advisers can play by Fatah’s rules or they can walk away. On Tuesday a delegation of diplomats from the US Consulate in Jerusalem came to Bethlehem to participate in a meeting of the local chamber of commerce. When they arrived in the city, Fatah members attacked them. Their vehicles with diplomatic license plates were pelted with tomatoes and eggs by a mob of protesters calling out anti-American slogans.

Palestinian Blackmail: US Is Our Enemy

editor 30 January 2018

By Bassam Tawil.. The Palestinians’ mock trial and “execution” of Trump and Pence gives the Palestinians a green light to target Americans physically. More interesting still is that members of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s ruling Fatah faction participated in the mock trial and “execution” of the US president and the Vice President. Strikingly, this event took place inside a refugee camp that is run by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA). More precisely, the execution took place outside a school run by UNRWA. Trump and Pence were “hanged” with the UNRWA flag flying atop the school in the background.

Time for Trump to cut the cord on the Palestinians 01/19/2018

editor 27 January 2018

By Caroline Glick.. For decades, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has been touted by American leaders as a moderate man of peace. U.S. leaders from George W. Bush to Barack Obama, and from Condoleezza Rice to John Kerry, all insisted that Abbas is the Palestinian leader who will make an historic deal with Israel. President Donald Trump has met three times with Abbas since taking office. On Sunday night (January 14, 2018), Abbas showed them what he really thinks. He cursed Trump saying that the U.S. President’s “house should be destroyed.” (more…)


Israeli Jewish lawyer represents 50 Palestinian torture victims because other “Human Rights” organisations refuse

editor 8 December 2017

By Christians United For Israel (CUFI).. A Jewish lawyer, who the media would describe decoratively as a “far-right settler”, has come to the aid of fifty Palestinians who were tortured by the Palestinian Authority.

The victims, all Palestinian Arabs, were jailed, beaten, kidnapped, tortured, some even raped, and others killed by their own government, because they were suspected of working with Israel. And the most shocking part is that 230, so-called, Human Rights Organisations have turned them down when they were asked to help. (more…)


As unity process goes nowhere fast, Hamas leader’s tactic will be to blame PA

editor 30 November 2017

By Avi Issacharoff.. Gaza’s Yahya Sinwar, purportedly determined to seek Palestinian reconciliation ‘for the sake of the children,’ wants to be able to say that he tried but Abbas scuppered the process. On instructions from Egypt, delegates from the various Palestinian groups showed up in Cairo this week to discuss the “historic” reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah. Almost everyone was there, from the highest-ranking officials from both main groups to representatives of organizations so minor that people wondered why they’d been invited. When Egypt’s General Intelligence Directorate, headed by Minister Khaled Fawzy, issues invitations, nobody can refuse.

PA Government, PA TV, and Fatah all present a world without Israel

editor 24 November 2017

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. The Palestinian Authority and Fatah continue to present to Palestinians an image of a world without Israel, using a map that erases Israel and replaces it with “Palestine.” This continues despite the PA and Fatah’s numerous assurances to American and European leaders that they recognise Israel and support a two-state solution. Here are three recent examples of the use of this map in which “Palestine” replaces all of Israel. (more…)


Palestinians: If You Do Not Give Us Everything, We Cannot Trust You

editor 23 November 2017

By Bassam Tawil.. The Palestinians have made up their mind: The Trump peace plan is bad for us and we will not accept it. The plan is bad because it does not force Israel to give the Palestinians everything. If and when the Trump administration makes public its peace plan, the Palestinians will be the first to reject it, simply because it does not meet all their demands. Trump will soon learn that for Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians, 99% is just not enough.

The day Palestine gave up

editor 22 November 2017

By Haviv Rettig Gur.. In last month’s (October 2017) reconciliation agreement, Abbas handed his legacy into Hamas’s keeping, and Hamas revealed that it is strong enough to drag its people to war, but not to freedom. On November 1 (2017), against all expectations, Hamas officials dismantled the checkpoints the organization maintained inside the Israeli-controlled crossings on the Israeli-Gazan border. It was a dramatic step. No longer would Palestinians leaving Gaza for Israel or the West Bank face questioning by Hamas intelligence officials about their business. No longer would Palestinians entering Gaza face the exorbitant import taxes and other fees imposed by Hamas.

Mahmoud Abbas’s Guardian op-ed illustrates the dishonesty of the ‘Palestinian narrative’

editor 20 November 2017

By Adam Levick.. The Guardian’s efforts to amplify the ‘injustice’ of Israel’s continued existence in the context of the Balfour Centennial went into high gear yesterday (November 1, 2017), as they published an op-ed  by PA President Mahmoud Abbas that included nearly every distortion and lie within what’s known as the ‘Palestinian narrative’.

Here are some of Abbas’s claims in his op-ed (Britain must atone for the Balfour declaration – and 100 years of suffering, November 1, 2017). (more…)
