As divided as the Palestinian Authority’s leading Fatah faction and Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization are - politically, religiously and to some extent ideologically - the two rivals are utterly united on their refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist.
Fatah, which presents itself internationally as the moderate Palestinian faction, doesn’t recognize Israel at all, and doesn’t even hide this ideology. On official Palestinian Authority TV, Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner of Treasury and Economy Muhammad Shtayyeh openly emphasized Fatah’s refusal to recognize Israel:
“The Fatah Movement never demanded that Hamas recognize Israel. To this moment, Fatah does not recognize Israel. The topic of recognition of Israel has not been raised in any of Fatah’s conferences.” (Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, March 26, 2017)
So whereas Fatah and Hamas compete for political power, when it comes to Israel they do agree: Israel has no right to exist.
Discussing Hamas’ new charter, which is purportedly under way, member of the Hamas movement’s political bureau Mahmoud Al-Zahar stated on Lebanese TV that the mention in the charter of the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip is but “a tactical step,” and that Hamas continues to think that all of Israel is “Palestine”:
“Member of the Hamas movement’s political bureau Mahmoud Al-Zahar emphasized… in an interview with the Lebanese (TV) channel Al-Mayadeen that is close to Hezbollah… that the new document that Hamas will publish does not constitute a new face, but rather explains the reality and fundamentals of the movement.
He said: ‘Our principles say that our land is all of Palestine, including the land that is under occupation (i.e., Israel).’ He also noted that the talk in the document about establishing a state in the West Bank and Gaza ‘is a tactical step that does not harm the right of the Palestinians to all of the land of Palestine.’ Al-Zahar continued: ‘We are not a copy of Fatah. We are not a copy of a failed project.’ He noted that only the Jews who occupied Palestine are the movement’s enemies, and not all of the Jews.” (Amad, independent Palestinian Authority news site, March 28, 2017) (Negotiation is a farce! Israel must end the existence of terrorist organisations on Jewish land and remove the so-called Palestinians, enemy population, from Eretz-Israel!)
National Memorial Day
On Memorial Day, 6,852,800 Jews in Israel and Jews around the world pay tribute to 23,544 fallen men and women who fell in defense of the state and the 4,128 victims of terrorism since its establishment.
Every year Jews have two memorial days: One to remind us the cost of having a state, another to remember the cost of not having Jewish state!
FOOD for THOUGHT by Steven Shamrak
There are many genuine peoples around the world, who are still suffering from occupation by others: Kurds, Armenians, Tibetans, Chechens, Western Saharans and Basques. The so-called Palestinians, a mix of peoples, recently forged by USSR and Arab countries to destroy Israel, are not one of them! In fact, they and Arabs of Hashemite tribe in Jordan, who were expelled from Saudi Arabia in 1922, are true occupiers of Jewish land – Eretz-Israel!
One hundred US Senators unanimously signed a letter that called on the UN to stop the anti-Israel bias inside the United Nations. In the letter the Senators wrote, “Through words and actions, we urge you to ensure that Israel is treated neither better nor worse than any other U.N. member in good standing…" (What a difference 100 days of new presidency makes!)
The PA has notified Israel that it will no longer pay for the electricity Israel supplies to Gaza. Gaza’s sole power plant shut down for lack of funds, leaving the Strip’s 2 million residents with only four hours of electricity per day. The Gaza power plant cannot afford to pay the heavy tax the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank has imposed on the fuel. (Hamas spends millions on weapons/rockets and digging terror tunnels, but does not care about providing clean drinking water and working hospitals! Fatah and Hamas are playing a political game, disregarding the welfare of the people they represent, but Israel will be blamed!)
The ‘clean meat’ movement is working towards producing meat-making machines that would permit cultured cells to develop into edible biomasses, drastically reducing the land and greenhouse gases that currently accompany meat production.
Americans for Peace Now is so concerned, apparently, about Israel’s new travel ban which gives the Jewish State the freedom to refuse entry to its sworn enemies who are engaged in a boycott, divestment and sanctions, that they cancelled their annual summer trip to Israel. (Making tough calls work! Israel must make them more often in order to remove enemies from Jewish land and reunite Eretz-Israel!)
In video broadcast by Egyptian opposition TV, men in uniform interrogate suspects and shoot them dead at point-blank range. Uniformed soldiers can be seen pulling two detainees out of military vehicles, briefly questioning them, and then shooting them. Several other dead bodies can be seen in the area where the two are shot. (Where is the international ‘outcry’ of heart-bleeding anti-Semites?)
The White House is looking to significantly reduce its foreign aid programs around the world, but plans to increase assistance to the Palestinian Authority. Aid to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip would see an increase of 4.6 percent, from $205 million in 2017 to $215 million in 2018. (Why is support for the anti-Israel entity is so robust – is it because of anti-Semitism?)
The hard work of more than 80 students from Ofakim, Yeruham, Ofra, Hura and Herzliya on the development of a small satellite dubbed Duchifat 2 comes to fruition as it is launched toward the International Space Station.
The 18-year old Arab terrorist from the PA who stabbed four Israelis in North Tel Aviv last week had entered pre-1967 Israel legally. The terrorist received the entry permit, which was issued by the Defense Ministry’s department for Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) at the request of the leftist Natural Peace Tour organization, for a one-day tour of Israel. (Left-wing NGOs incite violence with anti-Israel propaganda and co-operate with enemies of Israel!)
The National Cyber Authority (NCA) has blocked a massive cyber attack on Israeli businesses and infrastructure. The attacker posed online as a legitimate organization, sending emails in the name of that organization while simultaneously trying to attack about 210 other organizations, government ministries, public bodies, and private individuals.
Quote of the Week:
"So-called ‘Jewish Morality’, has been hijacked by concepts and ideologies far removed from Judaism and claim them as Jewish. Liberalism and Democracy are not Jewish Values. They are modern Western and European (inventions)… Judaism forbids us to "turn the other cheek," ignore attacks on us... For the State of Israel to be a truly moral country, a "light unto all nations," according to Jewish Tradition we must separate from the ideology of the international Left." - Batya Medad
Hidden Holocaust Facilitators
by Steven Shamrak.
29 September 1938 – The Munich agreement of German, Italian, British and French leaders agrees to German demands regarding annexation of the Sudeten borderland of Czechoslovakia.
9 November 1938 - Kristallnacht begins in Germany with the "night of broken glass" begins as Nazi troops and their sympathizers loot and burn Jewish businesses. (The all night affair saw 7,500 Jewish businesses destroyed, 267 synagogues burned, 91 Jews killed, and at least 25,000 Jewish men arrested).
4 June 1939 - The SS St Louis, a ship carrying 963 Jewish refugees, is denied permission to land in Florida and was forced to return to Europe. Most of its passengers later died in Nazi concentration camps.
30 June 1939 - A drastic Immigration Restriction Bill passed through US congress, suspending all quota immigration to the US for five years. The bill also called for the immediate registration of all aliens in the US at the time.
6 July 1939 - The last remaining Jewish enterprises in Germany are closed.
7. In 1939 - The British government issued the 'White Paper'. It reversed the support of the Balfour Declaration and announced a limitation on future Jewish immigration to Palestine.
Most countries agreed with and followed the guidelines set by the United States, France and Great Britain. It took brave and honorable men like Raul Wallenberg of Sweden, who saved hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews and Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat stationed in Lithuania, who issued thousands of transit visas to the desperate Jews. But, Wallenberg and Sugihara were exceptions and an embarrassment to their governments.
Since WWII, the same genocidal tendency has prevailed. Millions of people were exterminated, facilitated by international apathy and hypocrisy. The memory of the Pol Pot and Rwanda genocides is still fresh. The on-going slaughter of innocent civilians has been perpetrated in the Sudan and Congo for many years. Even now, nothing is done to force Turkey to take responsibility for the genocide of up to 1.5 million Armenians in 1905, which paved the way for the Holocaust.
The only news that is fed to the public by the international media is that of a fictitious Arab nation - Palestine. The same facilitators of the Holocaust have been generating their justifications for the blood-thirsty terror unleashed on Jews during the last 60 years by Arabs. The intentions of the Arab leadership and the Islamic terrorist infrastructure to destroy Israel and kill Jews are completely ignored. The rights of Jewish people to live in peace on the Jewish land are deemed by them to be non-existent!
These ugly genocide facilitators are still in control of the world’s future. What makes them even more dangerous is that they have not repented of their sins of the past, like Germany did, and arrogantly continue shaping our future using with the same power-hungry, disrespectful, xenophobic methods!
