Oslo is Devastating to Jewish Lives
(Marty M. - Opinion from FaceBook)
Oslo has been quite expensive, not just in terms of time, money & human capital entertaining world leaders, but in the cost of loss of life of our loved ones. Since Oslo, from signing in 1993 till today & still counting, the death toll is 1876 lives lost over a 23 year period. 379 lives were butchered in 1993 alone. This is, as opposed to terror attacks before the Oslo Accord, from statehood in 1948 till the signing of Oslo has cost us 1559 lives over a 44 year period. That is an average of 81.56 deaths a year since the signing of Oslo, as opposed to 35.43 deaths a year before Oslo. So, what benefit has Oslo bought us, and why are we still living with it?
It is not working, it is a killing machine. How many more will have to die before we correct our mistakes. We will never see “Peace”, until Abbas and the PLO are deported. If world leaders truly believe a Palestinian state is the solution, then let them establish such a Palestinian state in their own nation. They have opened their gates to the Syrian refugees, they can also open their gates to the Palestinian refugees. (Do they love them so much, or is this ‘love’ for fake Palestinians actually manifestation of their hate for Jews?)
A Palestinian policeman opened fire at a checkpoint at the entrance to Ramallah. Attacker arrived at Ramallah checkpoint on foot after shift at Palestinian parliament building, opening fire at IDF troops using a Kalashnikov rifle. (The PA security personnel are armed terrorists!)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
There were no condemnations of Iran and Pakistan after they threatened Israel with nuclear obliteration. All of the international anti-Semitic bigots – the US, EU, members of the UN Security Council - are silent! Jews had the same treatment as Israel does now before the Holocaust. Israel is on its own! The only difference that the Jewish state has the military capability to destroy the enemies, remove their population from Jewish land and reunify Eretz-Israel. Israel must use an opportunity to realise it and stop worrying about international criticism. The anti-Semitic bigots will be silenced when Israel is strong!
United Nations peacekeeping forces are scheduled to participate in a special emergency field medicine seminar headed by the Israeli military and local medical professionals. “Unfortunately, Israel has vast firsthand experience in how crucial it is to have professional emergency medicine,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said. The idea for the seminar arose about six months ago, as part of extending Israel’s ties with UN peacekeeping forces.
The State Department issued a scathing condemnation of Israel again after it issued building permits for 181 new homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo. Plans in Gilo were first approved in 2012. (There were no critics when Abbas praised a terrorist as a "heroic martyr" and openly calls for the murder of Jews.)
Anniversary Not Many Care About
The family of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and other Israeli officials gathered at Mount Herzl last Friday morning for a memorial service marking 21 years since his assassination.
Moscow has never denied Israel’s rights to Jerusalem, the Temple Mount or the Western Wall, Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev said in advance of his visit to the Jewish state. “These rights are clear and it would be absurd to deny them.” Similarly, he said, there was nothing contradictory in Russia’s sale and shipment of the advanced S-300 advanced surface to air missile defense system to Iran. (This is after Russia supported the UNESCO resolution sponsored by Arab/Muslim states on Jerusalem!)
Following their success in erasing the Jewish historical connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount at UNESCO, the Palestinian Authority has decided to ramp it up a bit, the Palestinian Authority delegation to UNESCO is now demanding the “return” of the “stolen” Dead Sea Scrolls. (This is another step in the 'game' of delegitimising and putting Israel on defensive again.)

Recognition and Betrayal of Eretz-Israel!
(Does anybody care about historical facts and international laws?)
Convention between the United States and Great Britain in respect to rights in Palestine was signed at London, December 3, 1924: Ratification advised by the Senate, February 20, 1925; ratified by the President, March 2, 1925 (That means that Eretz-Israel was recognised as all Palestine – including trans-Jordan, Gaza, Judea, Samaria and Golan Heights – are recognised by the US!); ratified by Great Britain, March 18, 1925; ratifications exchanged at London, December 3, 1925; proclaimed, December 5, 1925
It includes the exact language of Balfour quoted by the League of Nations, and more- including the right of Jews to settle in all parts of Palestine:
WHEREAS by the Treaty of Peace concluded with the Allied Powers, Turkey renounces all her rights and titles over Palestine; and
Whereas article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations in the Treaty of Versailles provides that in the case of certain territories which, as a consequence of the late war, ceased to be under the sovereignty of the States which formerly governed them, mandates should be issued, and that the terms of the mandate should be explicitly defined in each case by the Council of the League; and
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have agreed to entrust the Mandate for Palestine to His Britannic Majesty; and
Whereas the terms of the said mandate have been defined by the Council of the League of Nations, as follows:
"The Council of the League of Nations:
"Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have agreed, for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions of Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, to entrust to a Mandatory selected by the said Powers the administration of the territory of Palestine, which formerly belonged to the Turkish Empire, within such boundaries as may be fixed by them; and
"Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favor of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country; and
"Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country;
The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble...
An appropriate Jewish agency shall be recognised as a public body for the purpose of advising and co-operating with the Administration of Palestine in such economic, social and other matters as may affect the establishment of the Jewish national home and the interests of the Jewish population in Palestine, and, subject always to the control of the Administration, to assist and take part in the development of the country.
The Zionist organization, so long as its organization and constitution are in the opinion of the Mandatory appropriate, shall be recognised as such agency. It shall take steps in consultation with His Britannic Majesty's Government to secure the co-operation of all Jews who are willing to assist in the establishment of the Jewish national home. (Quite the opposite happened! Britain did all it could to incite Arab violence against Jews and remove Jews from Jewish land.)
The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in cooperation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes. (British blocked Jewish immigration from Europe before WW2, effectively participated in facilitating the Holocaust! Even after the war Jewish survivors were not allowed to come to Palestine.)
