Palestinians and the Bahrain Conference: Condemning Arabs While Asking for Arab Money. In 2009, the late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz announced his country's decision to donate $1 billion to contribute to the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians and the Bahrain Conference: Condemning Arabs While Asking for Arab Money

The monarch made his announcement during an Arab economic conference in Kuwait. The Saudi pledge never materialized, mainly because of the continued dispute between the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip and Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank. The king undoubtedly had good intentions and sought to help his Palestinian brothers, especially the two million residents of the Gaza Strip who remain in dire need of financial and economic assistance. When King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz died six years later, the Palestinians did not hesitate to show their contempt for the Arab leader who had offered to help improve their living conditions and ensure a better future for Palestinian children.

In the recent months, U.S. presidential advisors Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt have increased their contacts with elements in the region towards finalizing the plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace known as the "Deal of the Century.

Jordanian Concerns about Deal of the Century

" Jordanian King Abdullah II has made several visits to the U.S. lately, during which he was reportedly advised about the details of the plan and consulted on Jordan's possible role in it. Ahead of the public announcement of the plan, expected to take place soon, there has been considerable apprehension about it in Jordan. This is due to leaks published in the Arab, Israeli and international media, according to which Jordan will be expected to take part in resolving the Palestinian problem in ways that could change its character and demography, such as naturalizing Palestinian refugees, forming a confederacy with the Palestinian Authority (PA), or becoming an alternative homeland for the Palestinian people.

On the other hand, distressing pictures are being shown of the suffering of the Palestinian people in their rundown houses, whom Hamas says it represents. One of the big mysteries is how much the Hamas leaders, the Arab world's new tycoons, are worth, and how they, born and raised in refugee camps, who raise aloft the cause of their people's welfare, have become so wealthy and reclusive.

How Iran Deceived The U.S. Intelligence Community: Four Examples

President Trump criticized the U.S. intelligence community's Worldwide Threat Assessment, released January 29, 2019,[1] tweeting that it is "naïve"[2] about the danger posed by Iran. Debunking the claim that “Palestinians” are the indigenous people of Israel - Blogs. The wars between Israel and its Arab neighbors were fought for many years on the battlefield between armies.

In recent decades the arena of conflict has shifted from hand-to-hand combat to a war of narratives. Everybody agrees that the current affluence of Israel, its modern infrastructure and economy were developed by the Jews. The Palestinian Arab narrative is that as the ancient, indigenous people of Palestine they feel dispossessed and they deserve to take over Israel’s riches.

Jewish claims to their heritage in the land of Israel are supported by abundant archaeological artifacts and historical records. Meanwhile, there are no records to support the Palestinian narrative. Records show that it was 19th and 20th century Jewish settlement and the resulting employment opportunities that drew successive waves of Arab immigrants to Palestine.

Left’s moves against anti-Semitism long overdue – Boston Herald. Hub civic leaders take high road in opposing Irish bill.

It long ago ceased to be a secret that Massachusetts packs a national wallop in areas like technology, higher education, health care, finance and domestic electoral politics. Last week’s mobilization by Boston’s business leaders against a bill in Ireland’s parliament targeting Israel, which attracted media attention from Dublin to Jerusalem, illustrated that the city’s business community is not shy about weighing in on matters of international diplomacy when they affect its interests and offend its conscience. The bill in question would make it a crime, punishable by up to five years in prison, to do business with any Israeli residing beyond the so-called 1967 lines. These are Israel’s borders as they existed prior to the Arab states’ armed effort to annihilate the Jewish state in June 1967, which boomeranged when Israel repulsed the attack by entering the staging areas in the West Bank and the Golan Heights used by the Arabs to launch the war.

Israel counters with three points. Liberal Jews are destroying their own religion. American Judaism is broken. When two of the Jewish community’s most celebrated writers, Michael Chabon and his wife Ayelet Waldman, write an open letter stating that: “Any Jew, anywhere, who does not act to oppose President Donald Trump and his administration acts in favor of anti-Semitism; any Jew who does not condemn the president, directly and by name, for his racism, white supremacism, intolerance and Jew hatred, condones all of those things,” you don’t have to look far to see why. American Judaism is broken because the Jewish left broke it. A tiresome fixation on “tikkun olam,” which literally means “repair of the world,” has allowed Judaism to fall into disrepair.

The phrase “tikkun olam” was quietly lifted out of context from a Jewish prayer before the Second World War to mean social justice. Operation Defensive Shield. Operation Defensive Shield.

On Nov. 12, 2016, a group of seven women held a meeting in New York. They had never worked together before—in fact, most of them had never met—but they were brought together by what felt like the shared vision of an emerging mission.

There were effectively two different cohorts that day. The first one included Breanne Butler, Karen Waltuch, Vanessa Wruble and Mari Lynn Foulger—a fashion designer turned entrepreneur with a sideline in activist politics, who had assumed the nom de guerre Bob Bland. These four were new acquaintances who had connected in the days since Donald Trump’s election, through political networking on social media.
