Free the Palestinians: End UNRWA funding

editor 13 January 2018

By Shoshana Bryen.. It is time to resolve the issue of the imprisoned Palestinian population. The one imprisoned by the United Nations and its own unrealistic vision of the future. President Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. contribution to United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) could be eliminated might be the catalyst important and positive changes, if people can get over the moaning and crying about killing poor refugee babies. It’s not likely. (more…)

Tapes Reveal Egyptian Leaders’ Tacit Acceptance of Jerusalem Move

editor 10 January 2018

By David D. Kirkpatrick.. As President Trump moved last month to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an Egyptian intelligence officer quietly placed phone calls to the hosts of several influential talk shows in Egypt. “Like all our Arab brothers,” Egypt would denounce the decision in public, the officer, Capt. Ashraf al-Kholi, told the hosts. But strife with Israel was not in Egypt’s national interest, Captain Kholi said. He told the hosts that instead of condemning the decision, they should persuade their viewers to accept it. Palestinians, he suggested, should content themselves with the dreary West Bank town that currently houses the Palestinian Authority, Ramallah.

Trump kicks the Palestinian habit

editor 9 January 2018

By Caroline Glick.. It was probably a coincidence that US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley hailed the Iranian anti-regime protesters and threatened to end US financial support for UNRWA – the UN Palestinian refugee agency – and the Palestinian Authority more generally in the same briefing. But they are integrally linked. It is no coincidence that Hamas is escalating its rocket attacks on Israel as the Iranian regime confronts the most significant domestic challenge it has ever faced.

The British and European Perfidy

editor 22 December 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Twenty-four hours after President Trump’s watershed speech recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, there has been predictable Palestinian violence and equally predictable, almost unanimous condemnation from Western European leaders and the western left. What needs to be understood is that the former is symbiotically connected to the latter. As I said in my blog post yesterday, the Palestinians use violence in order to get a reaction that advances their agenda. (more…)

Europe’s war against the Jewish state

editor 22 December 2017

By Caroline Glick.. Europe is the epicenter of the political war against Israel. Europe fights Israel on the streets of Europe. Europe fights Israel in the corridors of power in Brussels, other Western European capitals and the UN. Europe fights Israel in Israel itself. Europe’s war against Israel is a passive-aggressive campaign fought and denied simultaneously. But in recent years, the mask has fallen over and over again.

After US veto, UN General Assembly to meet on Jerusalem status

editor 20 December 2017

By The Straits Times.. UNITED NATIONS (REUTERS) – The 193-member United Nations General Assembly will hold a rare emergency special session on Thursday (Dec 21, 2017) at the request of Arab and Muslim states on US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour said the General Assembly would vote on a draft resolution calling for Trump’s declaration to be withdrawn, which was vetoed by the United States in the 15-member UN Security Council on Monday (Dec 18, 2017). [Photo top right: Palestine’s Ambassador to the United Nations Riyad Mansour (centre) walks through the room before a vote on a draft resolution that would reject Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Dec 18, 2017, at UN Headquarters in New York. Photo: AFP].  (more…)

So Just Shut Up!

editor 16 December 2017

By Paula Stern.. Ever feel like going outside and screaming at the top of your lungs, “Just SHUT UP!” I can’t do that because, with several small grandchildren, I would have them repeating it to everyone they know and so, in silence I suffer as I read the words of others, as I hear them express one of several absurd and inaccurate comments. Most prevalent, and most annoying is the one where people suggest that the US should not move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem because of the threat of violence. Talk about giving in to terrorism! OMG. [Photo top right: Still from Danny Ayalon’s Youtube video “The Truth About Jerusalem”]. (more…)

Why the ‘Arab street’ didn’t just explode

editor 15 December 2017

By Ralph Peters.. In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close.

‘We’re Working Very Hard’ on Mideast Peace Plan, US Ambassador to Israel Says at ZOA Annual Dinner

editor 17 November 2017

By Shiryn Solny.. Speaking exclusively with JNS.org, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman on Sunday night (November 12, 2017) confirmed a report that a team from the Trump administration is drafting an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. “We’re working very hard on it,” Friedman said of the Mideast peace proposal, in an interview at the Zionist Organization of America’s (ZOA) annual awards dinner in New York City. “It’s hard to comment on it while we’re in the middle, because it’s delicate.” He added that more information about the plan will be publicized in “a few months.” (more…)
