Palestinian textbook immortalizes Coastal Road massacre terrorist

editor 21 March 2018

By Elior Levy, Ariela Sternbach.. Dalal Mughrabi [Photo top right], who led the terror cell that murdered 38 Israelis, among them 13 children, in the 1978 attack, is often glorified and immortalized in the Palestinian Authority; new textbook for 5th graders includes entire chapter dedicated to her, romanticizing her actions. The Coastal Road massacre of 1978, when 11 terrorists hijacked a bus on the Coastal Highway and murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children, left a deep scar on Israeli society. Palestinian society, meanwhile, glorifies the killers, particularly cell leader Dalal Mughrabi, who was killed in a fire exchange with security forces and over the years became one of the symbols of the Palestinian struggle.

Antisemitic Latuff cartoon published in Belgian textbook

editor 20 March 2018

By Elder of Ziyon.. A Flemish geography book published a cartoon by noted anti-semite Carlos Latuff.  It shows a stereotypical, fat religious Jew enjoying Palestinian water while their own pipes run dry. The geography textbook, Polaris GO!, attributes the cartoon to Amnesty International, although Amnesty has nothing to do with the cartoon. The textbook authors decided to attribute the cartoon to Amnesty in an apparent attempt to make it look like it was an official protest cartoon from that organization. (more…)


Reframing the Middle Eastern and Palestinian Refugee Crises

editor 16 March 2018

By Dr. Alex Joffe and Dr. Asaf Romirowsky.. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: There are two Middle Eastern refugee crises currently vying for resources and attention. One is nominally focused on Syria but in fact extends from Libya to Afghanistan. The other crisis is Palestinian and has supposedly been going on since 1948. A closer look at the causes of these crises shows the former to be primarily the result of the collapsing Arab state system and the rise of militant Islam, while the latter cannot be considered a crisis at all.

What Is a “Refugee”? The Jews from Morocco versus the Palestinians from Israel

editor 15 March 2018

By Alan M. Dershowitz.. The Arab exodus from Israel in 1948 was the direct result of a genocidal war declared against the newly established Jewish state by all of its Arab neighbors, including the Arabs of Israel. Approximately 700,000 local Arabs were displaced. Approximately the same number of Jews were displaced from their Arab homelands during this period. Nearly all of them could trace their heritage back thousands of years, well before the Muslims and Arabs became the dominant population.

editor 16 February 2018

By Gregg Roman – Israel Hayom.. U.S. President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address (January 30, 2018), alongside reports that his administration intends to put an end to the problematic definition of Palestinian refugeeism by which descendants of refugees are also granted refugee status, constitutes an important turning point in efforts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

MPs’ brilliant answers to hypocritical singling out of Israel’s arrests of minors

editor 13 February 2018

By Christians United for Israel (CUFI).. John Howell MP was among a number of MPs that provided brilliant responses in defence of Israel during a debate in Westminster Hall today (Wednesday 7, 2018). The debate titled ‘Military detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities’ included incredibly hostile speeches in a room full of mostly anti-Israel MPs. However the MP for Henley challenged the hypocrisy by revealing the figures of juvenile arrests made by Britain during the 2011 riots. Other MPs also shared the truth about the threats Israel face and unjust singling out of Israel. FANTASTIC! (more…)


Palestinians: The Atrocities No One Talks About

editor 8 February 2018

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. Why the need to keep reminding the world of the plight of the Palestinians in Syria? It is because the international community and pro-Palestinian groups around the world do not seem to care about the atrocities that are being committed against Palestinians in Syria or any Arab country because they were not committed by Israel. The 82-year-old Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, has made clear where his priorities stand. Instead of searching for ways to help his people in Syria and the Gaza Strip, where hospitals are facing a deathly shortage of fuel and medicine, Abbas has just spent $50 million to purchase a “presidential plane.” [Photo top right: The Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Syria has been under siege by the Syrian army for more than 1,660 days.

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…)
