  • Back to Thugocracy
    Jerusalem Post - March 6, 2005  Scant international or even local attention has been accorded news that the Palestinian Authority has decided to resume executions by the end of this month. Of the 15 inmates on death row, none are terrorists, but about half were convicted for "collaborating with Israel." Presumably the latter offense includes helping Israel foil suicide bombings. By our book that not only is the last deed for which one ought to be put to death, but it is precisely what the PA ought to be encouraging.

  • Christian friends, Christian enemies
    By Haim Shapiro - Jerusalem Post - March 8, 2005  The Presbyterian Church USA may have voted to begin a process of divestment from firms dealing with Israel, but there are many Presbyterians who are not happy about the move, says Rev. William Harter, minister of the Presbyterian Church of Falling Spring in Chambersberg, Pennsylvania.

  • Abu Mazen: Beneath the Moderate Veneer - Part I
    By Arlene Kushner - IsraelNationalNews.com - March 8, 2005   "If anyone deserves to be given a chance, this is the guy." So declared Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, referring to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (a.k.a. Abu Mazen), in an address just last month.

  • Abu Mazen: Beneath the Moderate Veneer - Part II
    By Arlene Kushner - IsraelNationalNews.com - March 9, 2005   The PLO "Phased Plan", you see, is alive and well in the Palestinian Authority headed now by Arafat's good disciple. His goal is still the eventual destruction of Israel. Arafat would be proud of him.

  • Don't wobble, Mr. President
    By Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - March 11, 2005   And so today, rather than force PA leader Mahmoud Abbas to destroy terror groups, the road map regime legitimizes him as he demands that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah's Aksa Martyrs Brigades be accepted as political parties and recruits them into his security services.

  • What can go wrong
    By Daniel Pipes - Jerusalem Post - March 8, 2005  I too welcome these developments, but more warily. Having been trained in Middle Eastern history makes me perhaps more aware of what can go wrong. Yes, Mahmoud Abbas wishes to end the armed struggle against Israel, but his call for a greater jihad against the "Zionist enemy" points to his intending another form of war to destroy Israel.

  • When will Israel finally say ‘enough is enough’?
    By Mortimer Zuckerman - Jewish World Review - March 7, 2005   How long is Israel willing to bleed for Abu Mazen? How long before Syria is stopped in its tracks for its terrorism? The Palestinian suicide attack at the Stage Club on the beach at Tel Aviv was the work of Islamic Jihad but authorized by its leaders in Damascus.

  • Note to Arabs: Foil anti-Israel terror and die
    By Jerusalem Newswire Editorial Staff - www.jnewswire.com - March 10, 2005

    Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority is set to execute 15 Arabs this month for the crime of assisting Israel in foiling terrorist attacks against its Jewish citizens.

    This action, coming at a time when the PA is demanding Israel set free jailed terrorists, tells the Arab street anti-Jewish terrorism will be tolerated and even rewarded, while working against the terror groups is a capital crime, Minister-without-Portfolio Natan Sharansky wrote earlier in the week.

    For its part, Israel is doing nothing to help those who put their lives on the line saving Jewish men, women and children from “Palestinian” atrocities.

    When asked by Arutz 7 Tuesday if Israel would demand the prisoners’ lives be spared, Defense Minister Sha’ul Mofaz simply ignored the reporter’s question.

    This sends the message that any potential Arab allies in Israel’s war on terror can expect no reciprocal aid from Jerusalem when it is their lives that are threatened, a prominent Israeli lawyer determined to prevent the executions suggested.

    Suspected collaborators

    “Palestinian” sources reported last week that the director of the PA’s Military Court had sentenced between five and 15 Palestinian Arabs to death for suspected collaboration with Israel’s security forces in the war on terror.

    PA-appointed Jerusalem Mufti Sheikh Akrameh Sabri later gave religious approval for the 15 executions.

    All 15 were accused of having passed sensitive information to Israel’s security forces that led to the targeted killings of wanted “Palestinian” terrorists.

    Israel is forced to approach private Arab citizens to assist in its war on terror because the Palestinian Authority continues to refuse to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure in accordance with the Oslo Accords and Road Map peace plans.

    ‘Peace cannot be built on blood’

    Sharansky wrote an urgent letter to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon at the weekend urging the government to prevent the executions.

    “It is unacceptable that the PA demands the release of terrorists from our jails, and we respond affirmatively because of the hope for an opening to peace, while at the very same time the PA is about to commit state executions of people accused of helping Israel thwart terror,” he was quoted as writing by The Jerusalem Post .

    “It is impossible to build a peace process based on blood…The cold-blooded execution of those individuals accused of cooperating to deflect terror directly contradicts the gestures demanded of Israel, tramples human rights, and with it any spark of hope for a better future in the Middle East," Sharansky wrote.

    Abandoning Israel’s front line

    But the Sharon government appeared to be unmoved Tuesday when Mofaz brushed off a reporter’s question about whether or not he had demanded the prisoners’ lives be spared in a meeting with Abbas that day.

    Israel Law Center director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner told Arutz-7 she sent her own letter to Sharon “demanding that he take immediate steps to ensure that these executions are not carried out.”

    Sharon “should threaten not to release more [Palestinian] prisoners, and he must turn to the US and Europe, as well as donor nations, and he must involve the United Nations as well,” Darshan-Leitner said.

    “And if all this doesn't work, then we even recommended that [Sharon] resort to military action to stop these executions,” the veteran attorney stated.

    “These people are our front in this war, how can we abandon them to the dogs?” Darshan-Leitner asked.
