    Jews Don't Expel Jews!
    Jews Don't Expel Jews!
  • Marching Into the Unknown
    by Moshe Kempinski - IsraelNationalNews.com - July 15, 2005  Government spokesmen declared that "it is obvious that the Islamic Jihad terrorists are trying to impede the Disengagement Plan and we will not let them get away with that." To translate that political drivel into English, the government essentially was saying, "We are not going to let the fact that Palestinians are slaughtering innocent Jews in one place hamper our plans to expel innocent Jews from another place."

  • The beginning of the reckoning
    by Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - July 15, 2005  Reacting to Neville Chamberlain's Munich Pact with Adolf Hitler in the British Parliament in October 1938, Winston Churchill warned, "You have to consider the character of the Nazi movement and the rule which it implies There can never be friendship between the British democracy and the Nazi power, that power which spurns Christian ethics, which cheers its onward course by a barbarous paganism, which vaunts the spirit of aggression and conquest, which derives strength and perverted pleasure from persecution, and uses, as we have seen, with pitiless brutality the threat of murderous force. That power can never be a trusted friend of British democracy."

  • The Jewish State-icide
    By Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. - JewishWorldReview.com - July 12, 2005   The one place we apparently are indifferent to the rising power of the Islamists is in the would-be state of "Palestine." There, the establishment of an Islamofascist Gazastan is not only being tolerated by the West. It is being enabled by the government of Israel, the G-8 and the Bush Administration. The emergence of a new Arab state-sponsor of terror that is flush with Western cash and enjoys the protection of the international community will, of course, be a mortal threat to Israel. Having enhanced the stature of terrorists determined to destroy the Jewish State, Israelis will find the Islamists making a redoubled effort to do just that from their new safe-havens.

  • Terrorism Works
    By Evelyn Gordon - Jerusalem Post - July 14, 2005   And this change in the West's view of Israel has occurred not despite, but because of the terrorist attacks against it: Israel is viewed not as the victim, but as the cause of the violence. Hence Israel, not the terrorists, is the major threat to world peace; hence Christian churches are divesting from Israel rather than from the Palestinian Authority, which has consistently refused to act against terrorists. And terrorism will continue to serve their goals for precisely so long as the world, despite its lip-service condemnations, responds by blaming the victims and seeking to address the terrorists' "grievances."

  • Trigger to an avalanche
    By Rachel Neuwirth - Israelinsider.com - July 15, 2005   Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza disengagement scheme is being hailed by American President George Bush, and the major media as a step toward peace and security. A closer examination will show, however, that it is an egregious violation of human rights, an illegal action, and a major setback in the war against terror which will harm not only Israel's security, but U.S. security as well.

  • Democracy -- a Weapon in the Wrong Hands
    By Rena Cohen - Townhall.com - July 8, 2005  a deadly charade is being carried out under the banner of democracy. While Israel is pulling out of Gaza and parts of the disputed territories of the West Bank to foster peace, the Palestinian Authority and its allies are preparing for the next terror war. On July 4th, the Palestinian Authority, under elected leader Mahmoud Abbas, announced that talks about a “unity government” with Islamic Jihad and Hamas would begin. Hamas reportedly rejected Abbas’ overtures. Whether or not the “wedding” is consummated is completely irrelevant. The very fact that Abbas proposed says it all. Elections cannot make a terrorist into a democrat anymore than awarding Arafat the Nobel Prize made him into a peacemaker.

  • Abbas and Hamas Begin Open Hostilities
    By Michael Widlanski - July 15, 2005

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) declared a state of emergency in its security forces today after hostilities broke out Friday in Gaza between the PA and its Islamist counterparts in the Hamas and Jihad movements.

    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas did not make any attempt to address his community, preferring to maintain a low profile during the crisis, but his official Palestinian broadcast media publicly blamed Hamas for introducing a period of "fitna" [ "civil strife" in Arabic ].

    "We will take whatever steps are necessary to stop the use of weapons," declared PA Interior Minister Nasser Youssef in a somewhat hasty and short press conference shown on Palestinian television. General Youssef appeared for less than 20 seconds on the screen and in front of microphones before rushing away with his bodyguards.

    Voice of Palestine radio said 25 had been wounded, including nine members of PA police and security force members in attacks on at least three police stations, and PA television reported that two police cars were burned by Hamas gunmen. But the general small-scale internal Palestinian fighting was important because of its political significance.

    It was the first time since 1998 that there was open combat fighting and public exchange of accusations Hamas and the PA, which is built around the Fatah movement of Yasser Arafat and his successor, Dr. Abbas.

    "Quiet has returned to Gaza City following several attacks this morning by armed groups of the Hamas movement on elements of National Defense," declared Voice of Palestine radio during its 12-noon (5AM-New York) news broadcast.

    The internal Palestinian fighting took place during the same week that Jihad, Hamas and Fatah carried out, respectively, human bomb attacks, rocket assault and mortar strikes on a wide range of targets inside Israel and its Jewish communities in Gaza and the West Bank, murdering at least six Israelis and wounding more than 40.

    Palestinian President Abbas weakly condemned one of the attacks-on an Israeli mall in Netanya-as a crime against Palestinian interests, but he and his media ignored all the other attacks and refused to condemn Hamas or Jihad by name, preferring to pretend that they were both still observing a ceasefire regarding Israeli targets.

    In fact, the Abbas-controlled media referred to Israeli "aggression" and "terrorism" in responding to the attacks, but Abbas's open courting of Hamas and Jihad does not seem to have worked, and hehas never established his authority even among his own Fatah members, especially the suicide bombers of the "Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade."

    Abbas's personal spokesman, Nabil Abu-Rudeineh, who also served as Arafat's spokesman, appeared on PA television charging that Israel was to blame for the recent internal Palestinian violence, and he stressed that Abbas was meeting with Hamas and Jihad to restore internal Palestinian tranquility.

    Less than a week ago, Abbas in a speech in the Rashidiyeh Refugee Camp in Lebanon-whose remarks were repeatedly broadcast on PA television and radio-had insisted that he had no differences with Hamas or Jihad.

    Abbas, who returned to the Gaza Strip several days ago, has been working short office hours on those few occasions that he has been in Gaza or the West Bank. However, he has been seen by an increasing number of Palestinians and Israelis as a kind of absentee landlord who prefers making diplomatic tours of Washington, London, Damascus and Cairo rather than putting his own house in order.
