How Palestine “Occupies” Itself

editor 14 October 2017

By Dr. Asaf Romirowski.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 606, October 7, 2017

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: “Occupation” has become an all-purpose Palestinian tool. On the one hand, the Palestinians claim the Israeli “occupation” makes serious negotiations with Israel impossible. On the other, they claim the “occupation” makes the development of local institutions and civil society impossible. Western and Israeli diplomats have largely avoided criticism of this strategy, possibly because it has become a central tenet of Palestinian identity.

The True Colonialist Settlers In The Land of Israel

editor 28 September 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. At the core of the leftist onslaught against Israel lies the belief that it is a “settler”, colonialist enterprise through which the Jews, with no historical claim to the land, turfed out the indigenous Palestinians whose home it had been since antiquity. In fact, the precise opposite is true: the “Palestinians” are the true settlers and colonialists while the Jews are the only extant indigenous people and the only people for whom the land of Israel was ever their national kingdom.

The Palestinians’ “Creativity for Hate”

editor 8 September 2017

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. The angry reactions to the joint Palestinian-Israeli summer camp in the US should be seen in the context of the Palestinians’ strong opposition to all forms of “normalization” with Israel. Most comments posted by Palestinians and other Arabs in response to the joint Palestinian-Israeli camp vilify the Palestinian girls and their families. The postings brand them as traitors, sluts, filthy people who are not ashamed to be seen in the company of Israeli girls. Then there is the barrage of abuse that is not fit for print. (more…)

Israel’s enemies have the people hooked on so-called ‘humiliation’

editor 30 August 2017

By Rabbi Abraham Cooper.. What’s the toughest habit to kick? Turns out, in the Middle East it’s humiliation.

Yes, according to the Palestinian Authority (PA), the explosion of hate, violence, and murder against their Jewish neighbors was ignited by Israel. The source of the humiliationIsrael’s installation of metal detectors on Jerusalem Old City’s Temple Mount near the al Aqsa Mosque. This, after Israeli Arabs machine gunned two Israeli (Druze) police officers from the sacred ground to Judaism and Islam. Their weapons were smuggled onto the Temple Mount before the shootings.

The Slaughter Of The Salomon Family

editor 29 August 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. So now the non-stop Palestinian Arab incitement against Israel has resulted in yet more Palestinian barbarism. The Salomon family had gathered for a Friday night (July 21, 2017) Shabbat dinner, celebrating the birth of a grandchild, in their home in the Israeli settlement of Halamish. A 19 year-old Palestinian burst in armed with a large knife and began stabbing members of the family. (more…)

Europe Remains Blind Because It Doesn’t Want To See

editor 29 August 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. In Budapest this week (July 18, 2017), Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had an unintentionally revealing moment. On an open microphone, he was overheard condemning as “crazy” the EU’s insistence on resolving the Israel-Palestinian conflict as a precondition for closer trade ties. European links with Israel, he said, would determine whether the EU would “live and thrive or shrivel and disappear.” [Photo top right: Israeli PM Netanyahu and Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán](more…)

After Temple Mount ‘Victory,’ Arabs Set Sights on Western Wall

editor 17 August 2017

By Andrew Friedman.. Palestinians and Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday (July 25, 2017) as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall. MK Taleb Abu Arar (Joint List) stressed that “Jews have no rights at al-Aqsa Mosque,” and added that Muslims’ fight against Israel would continue, regardless of the cabinet decision to remove metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount compound.

editor 18 July 2017

Tajani’s prompt intervention was in response to a letter addressed to him by 17 Members of the European Parliament from across the political spectrum, denouncing the delegation for hosting in Strasbourg as guest speakers relatives of two convicted terrorists, Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Sa’adat, under the pretext of discussing ‘’the situation of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails after the hunger strike.’’ (more…)

The Over-Dramatization of Israel’s “Dilemma”

editor 3 June 2017

By Dr. Max Singer.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 479, May 28, 2017

Executive Summary: Israel is not facing a dilemma about how much, if any,  land to give up from the West Bank, because the Palestinians will not agree to take land and cannot be forced to do so. The Palestinian community sees peace with Israel as defeat in their 100-year struggle. Continued Israeli occupation is one of the Palestinians’ best weapons against Israel, and they will not give it up while their war to eliminate Israel continues. (more…)

Palestinians paid terrorists $1b in past 4 years, Knesset panel hears

editor 1 June 2017

By Times of Israel Staff.. Day after reports of Trump shouting at Abbas about incitement, former top official dismisses PA claims that it is making ‘social welfare’ payments, saying they are presented as ‘salaries’ in Palestinian budget documents. The Palestinian Authority has paid out some NIS 4 billion — or $1.12 billion — over the past four years to terrorists and their families, a former director general of the Ministry of Strategic Affairs and ex-head of the army’s intelligence and research division told a top Knesset panel on Monday (May 29, 2017).
