(It is the first step toward Jewish national suicide!)
Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister, Adel al-Jubeir, said the Arab Peace Initiative is the best solution for the Israel-Palestinian Authority conflict, and rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's demand that the initiative be "updated" to reflect the changes that have occurred in the Middle East over the past several years.
The initiative, unveiled in 2002 and re-endorsed at the 2007 Arab League summit, says that 22 Arab countries will normalize ties with Israel in return for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria.
Israel to date has rejected the plan due to the fact that it calls for Israel to accept the so-called "right of return" for millions of descendants of Arabs who fled pre-state Israel, effectively bringing an end to the Jewish state.
A statement released by the Israeli Foreign Ministry following the half-day meeting charged that only direct negotiations could lead to a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
"The conference in Paris was a missed opportunity," read the statement.
The ministry accused the international community of "yielding" to the demands of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. (Not the first and not the last time!)
"Instead of urging Abu Mazen (Abbas) to respond to calls from Prime Minister (Benjamin Netanyahu) to start direct negotiations immediately and without preconditions, the international community responded to Abu Mazen's demand, allowing him to keep avoiding direct bilateral negotiations without preconditions," the ministry said.
"It will go down in history that the conference in Paris simply resulted in hardened Palestinian positions and distant peace," the ministry charged...
The last round of peace talks took place between July 2013 and April 2014 with the mediation of the US, and ended abruptly without results.
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
During this year’s celebration of Jerusalem Day, many Jewish communities promoted tolerance, not Jewish nationalism – Zionist aspiration of our people and re-unification of Eretz-Israel. Have our enemies promoted tolerance toward Jews when they marked ‘Nakba' day? No, they celebrated the beginning of Ramadan by killing Jews in Tel-Aviv! Why does Jewish leadership of Diaspora and in Israel still keep Jews in a galut (exile) mentality? Only by asserting our rights as a proud nation will Israel gain respect and reach our goal!
Terrorists opened fire at the Sarona Market, a popular tourist destination. in Tel Aviv on Wednesday evening, killing four people and wounding at least six. It has been reported that the terrorists were disguised as haredi Jews. One terrorist involved in the attack was shot by a security guard and neutralized shortly after the attack. A second terrorist was later found and captured. (When will the government of Israel realise that only after removing the enemy population from Jewish land will security and peace for Jews be achieved in Israel?)
The State Department encouraged Israel to impose only temporary restrictions on the ability of Palestinians entering the country, and warned that a long-term restriction could further inflame tensions in the region. (International anti-Semites do not care about Jewish lives, only about ‘comfort’ for our enemies to commit more terror attacks!)
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (The United Nations is a willing and eager initiator and facilitator of this ugliness! From the separation plan of 1947 to consistent anti-Semitic condemnation of Israel the organisation has been consistently conducting an anti-Israel political agenda! Almost Immediately ‘Ugly Nazi’ accused Israel of 'collective punishment') night condemned the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in which four Israelis were murdered. “The Secretary-General is shocked that the leaders of Hamas have chosen to welcome this attack and some have chosen to celebrate it. He calls upon the Palestinian leadership to live up to their responsibility to stand firmly against violence and the incitement that fuels it.”
Silver coins dating back to the Maccabean Period (from around 126 BCE) have been found at an archeological excavation site near Modi'in. In addition to silver coins, the excavation also uncovered many bronze coins with the names of such Jewish Maccabean leaders as Yohanan, Yudah, and Mattathias. (Archaeologists are still searching for the evidence of historic existence of the Arab-Palestinian ‘nation’, which mysteriously appeared in 1960’s.)
Quote of the Week:
“Because the Iran deal is fundamentally flawed and does not permanently dismantle Iran’s nuclear capability, Texas will maintain its sanctions against Iran... Further, because your administration has recklessly and unilaterally removed critical sanctions, I have called on the Texas Legislature to strengthen the Iran sanctions that Texas already has in place.” - Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, rejected the unjustified request from the White House that states drop their sanctions against Iran.
Mosab Hassan Yousef – the “Green Prince” or “Son of Hamas”, speaking at The Jerusalem Post’s annual conference in New York said:
I came to experience what the Jewish nation really is... through witnessing the true democratic model in an ocean of darkness.
“At one point I thought that the Jewish nation is the enemy of humanity. I thought they were the enemy of our people, the Palestinian people, until I experienced what the Jewish nation truly is.“
I had witnessed a Palestinian mother send her five children on suicide attacks and how she would bless each one to gain respect in society.
The collective mind of society is representing something, an ideology, a culture, a state of consciousness that is stuck in the 6th and 7th centuries in a tribal lust for power.
“We cannot fool ourselves,” he continued, but “there is an Islamic problem,” going on to mention various radical Islamic terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram and Islamic State.
“All of them are killing by the name of Allah,” he said adding that other religions do not act in such ways. “There is an Islamic problem and I think humanity needs to stand against this danger.”
“There is an Islamic problem. And I think humanity needs to stand against this danger, because this danger is not only against the State of Israel. This danger is against the evolvement of mankind.”
Political correctness means to bury your head in the sand, but "the truth is that we are afraid... we are trying not to create a religious war. But there has been a religious war (already) whether you like it or not.”
"To tell them no, Islam is a religion of peace. We just create the perfect climate for terrorists to keep on growing." Islam is a belief system and the world should unify against it just as it did against Nazism, he went on to argue.
“Today the free world should unite against Islam, not against Muslims but against Islam as a belief system. When the president of the free world stands and says that Islam is a religion of peace, he creates the climate, he provides the climate, the perfect climate, to create more terrorism.”
The Jewish people were able to overcome the Holocaust and instead of playing the victim card, built a democratic state, which sets a great example, concluded Yousef. (I completely agree with him. I just wish that we have Jewish leaders in Israel and Diaspora who would openly stated the same!)
