Jacob Amir: Palestinians brought problems on themselves
A letter to the editor — 12/07/2007 10:07 am

Dear Editor: The authors of the column “Jews need to speak out on abuse of Palestinians” blame Israel for the difficulties facing the residents of Gaza.

One wonders if the authors can imagine what would have happened if, immediately after Israel left the Gaza Strip, all terror activity from there ceased. Which means no rocket launching, no weapons smuggling, no efforts to bomb the border crossing points, no efforts to send suicide murderers into Israel.

Then all the crossing points would have remained open, there would have been free merchandise exchange, thousands of Gazans would have been able to work in Israel, and it would have been possible to travel between the West Bank and Gaza. The Gazan economy would have been much stronger, and the daily life of the citizens would have been much better.

The authors do not tell us that the Palestinians chose to continue with their war of terror. As a result they brought nothing but disaster on their people. They infiltrated into Israel, killing two soldiers and abducting a third. In the last two years, since Israel left the Gaza Strip to the last inch, more than 2,000 Kasam rockets have been fired at Israeli villages and towns.

Like any other country Israel will do its best to protect its citizens.

“Palestinian” Arabs first class inside Israel – PA Arab Squatters Remain on Jerusalem Property

“Palestinian” Arabs first class inside Israel – PA Arab Squatters Remain on Jerusalem Property

PA Arab Squatters Remain on Jerusalem Property
6 Kislev 5768, 16 November 07 11:38by Ezra HaLevi( Yitzchak Herskovitz, in his eighties, continues to battle Arab squatters in the courts as yet another eviction was postponed Sunday.

Herskovitz has been in the courts for fifteen years against a clan of PA Arabs who are squatting on a property he owns just below the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat HaMatos, near Beit Tzefafa. Even after multiple rulings in his favor, the return of his property had been repeatedly delayed and called into question.

“The government and courts are responsible for protecting the property rights of their citizens, but they are not doing so.” Herskovitz told Arutz-7. “I do not believe a person can fathom the pain of what this trespassing does to me.”

Earlier this year, on July 2, Herskovitz was given a court order to evict the squatters. At first, the police demanded that he pay for a large number of officers to enforce the order in the face of expected violence. After he paid the sum and dozens of Jewish volunteers showed up to assist in reclaiming the property, police said an injunction had postponed the order due to a legal technicality the Arabs’ lawyer brought to court at the last moment.

Arutz-7’s coverage of the story led to the Knesset Law Committee’s adjustment of the law requiring private citizens to pay the police to enforce a court order, but the eviction has yet to take place.

A new date was eventually set, with Jerusalem District Court Judge Noam Solberg demanding that the Arabs’ lawyer, Mohammad Dahleh, sign an agreement that he would cease the use of delay tactics.

The date was then delayed once more due to a police policy not to carry out evictions during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The new eviction date was finally set for Sunday, November 11, but was again postponed at the last minute – due to yet another loophole found by Dahleh, who had refused to sign the agreement presented by the Judge.

“It was proven without a doubt, with a preponderance of evidence that the Salah clan invaded the Givat HaMatos and Beit Tzefafa area by way of Bethlehem,” Herskovitz says. “It is with a strong desire to seek a peaceful solution to this dilemma that I go to court. Others, I believe, would have taken the law in their own hands.”

Not Only in House Illegally, But Jerusalem Too
The Salah clan, which is squatting in the residence, is not only residing in Herskovitz’s property illegally, but in Jerusalem altogether in contravention of the law. The clan resided in the PA village of Tamra south of Jerusalem until they were forced to leave by the village elders due to criminal activity.

Herskovitz recently made several trips to the relevant Judea and Samaria police and Civil Administration authorities to ascertain whether they had the documents required to enter pre-1967 Israel from PA-controlled areas. He found out that they have no such permission and are in Jerusalem illegally.

Herskovitz alleges that the police know this and refuse to take action against the clan.

He is now demanding that the police file a criminal suit against the squatters. “Even when I win this current case, they will not be punished for their actions,” he says, “because it is a civil trespass suit, whereas their actions are criminal. Their actions are more than mere squatting or trespassing, but their presentation of false documents in court proves their intent is criminal. I believe the State of Israel should give them alternate housing – in jail – so that others will know that trespassers are indeed punished.”

Herskovitz says activists have the ability to influence the police to enforce the law, suggesting Minister of Public Security Avi Dichter be contacted…


Technorati – Conference Call: Rep. Eric Cantor (R, VA-7) On HR 756, Condemning the Wakf’s Destruction Of The Temple-Mount

October 19, 2007 Conference Call: Rep. Eric Cantor (R, VA-7) On HR 756, Condemning the Wakf’s Destruction Of The Temple-Mount

Please Stop Destroying Ancient Jewish ArtifactsThis morning’s One Jerusalem conference call was with Eric Cantor (R-VA 7), the Republican Chief Deputy Whip in the House. He’s otherwise known as “one of the people who was rightfully insulted when Dean branded the GOP ‘white, Christian party'” (because apparently no slur is off limits if it’s impossible for you to lose the Jewish vote). The big news today is that Cantor’s introduced a bipartisan bill, HR 756, to condemn the Muslim Wakf’s destruction and desecration of Jewish artifacts – and thus of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage – on the Temple Mount.

Daled Amos (Daled Amos), Avi Green (Tel Chai Nation, Rick Richman (Jewish Current Issues), Anne Lieberman (Boker Tov, Boulder). As usual OJ’s Allen Roth was moderating the call and the audio should be up on the One Jerusalem frontpage within a few hours. This is one you might want to download and listen to all the way through. It was a pretty brisk call, with the Congressman fielding a couple questions that were not exactly softballs (see also: Fatah security assistance, well-known State Department failures; Annapolis conference, jblogosphere attitude towards). Also, if you’ve ever wanted to hear what Anne Lieberman’s dog sounds like, this is your chance. Real cute puppy.

First things first: One Jerusalem petition to keep Israel united. Click. After the jump: a fuller description of the conference call, the bill, and the decades of Arab efforts to physically destroy the Judeo-Christian heritage in Jerusalem.

From Cantor’s brief description – and we’re sure that OJ will compile more on this as the day goes by – the bill he introduced this morning is a bipartisan bill cosponsored with Shelley Berkley of Nevada to condemn the Wakf’s destruction and desecration of the Temple Mount. For years the Wakf Authority – given control over the Temple Mount by Israel as a gesture of peace and trust after 1967 – unblinkingly denied that they were destroying artifacts. Then – as the Congressman noted – priceless ancient Jewish artifacts were found in a landfill where the Wakf had dumped tons and tons of soil removed from the area. After proof of the desecration was published, the Wakf transitioned from “we’re not doing anything wrong” to “we have the right to do what we’re doing.”

That’s why it’s doubtful that a US expression of outrage will have any effect on the Wakf. Judeo-Christian sensibilities are not exactly the kind of thing that he’s inclined to be attentive towards (ergo the destruction in the first place). The Wakf’s campaign is deliberate and it has a very straightforward purpose – to make it impossible for Israel to claim any connection to Jerusalem. And if you think that’s insane, we’d like to welcome you to the wonderland of Middle East peacemaking. No anti-Israel claim is so surreal that it won’t be trotted out and repeated endlessly until it becomes a reasonable point for debate:

The recent statements of Palestinian leaders warning of “grave consequences” of the “provocative” decision by Israel to allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount are only the latest in a history of attempts by Arab leaders to minimize or deny the historical connection between Jews and the Temple Mount. Arab newspapers and speakers consistently refer to Jewish connections to the Temple Mount as “alleged.”

That’s from half a decade ago and it’s got about a dozen of the more prominent quotes from the more visible Palestinian and Arab leaders. The political goal has always quite explicitly been (1) deny the historical connection of Jews to Jerusalem in order to (2) deny Jews physical access to Jerusalem as part of the peace process.

But the purpose of the bill is not really to stop the Wakf – as if anything short of decisive Israeli action to assert some kind of legal control could do that. The purpose of the bill is to call attention to why Israel must retain sovereignty over Jerusalem. Every time an Arab country has been given authority over East Jerusalem they have used it to destroy the Judeo-Christian heritage of the city:

In violation of the 1949 Armistice Agreement, Jordan denied Israelis access to the Temple Wall and to the cemetery on the Mount of Olives, where Jews have been burying their dead for 2,500 years. Jordan actually went further and desecrated Jewish holy places. King Hussein permitted the construction of a road to the Intercontinental Hotel across the Mount of Olives cemetery. Hundreds of Jewish graves were destroyed by a highway that could have easily been built elsewhere. The gravestones, honoring the memory of rabbis and sages, were used by the engineer corps of the Jordanian Arab Legion as pavement and latrines in army camps.

The American public already knows that the Palestinians can’t be trusted. But very few people know the absolute shamelessness with which the Palestinians conduct affairs that would be off limits to anyone except the world’s anointed victims. There was a global outcry when the Taliban blew up Buddhist statues that were critical but certainly not absolutely central to Buddhist practice. The Temple Mount has been a focal point of Jewish prayer for 2,000 years, and the lack of public outcry is a combination of antipathy towards Israel and a lack of knowledge about the extent of the desecration. While it’s getting increasingly difficult to do anything about the former, HR 756 has the potential to focus debate and raise public awareness about the latter.References:

The Islamic Apartheid that created a myth on Israel

June 26, 2007

The Islamic Apartheid that created a myth on Israel

The very APARTHEID bastion of the world, otherwise known as the ‘Islamic world’, or the totalitarian dictatorships inc. where no one is ever equal there, not women, not one class to the other, not one minority has any decent rights, but persecuted in the regular Arab racism’s supremacy & Islamic apartheid, or Islamo fascism.

In order to divert attention from the real criminals of apartheid in this world [or to disperse their populations’ resentment of the oppressive regimes, after all, what else can can so ‘unify’ that intolerant culture than common hatred?], and much much worse then that [to say the least], they, in their collective hatred & Apartheid motivation against the ‘non Arab’ the ‘non Muslim’ entity AKA Israel, to deny it’s right to exist, have come up with a myth about “apartheid in Israel”, what it actually means is that if democratic & free Israel dares to defend it’s self from a Racist Arab terrorist it is doomed to be branded as an “apartheid” system.

The sad part is of course that some have been bought by Arab oil money like Jimmy Carter, but the world should not let the magic sand cover the Arabian monsters including those “freedom fighters” fascists in Gaza that oppress Christians or those “moderate” ‘Palestinians’ that try to ethnic cleanse all Jews from the land, and so far there’s not one Jewish family under “moderate” fascist ‘palestine’.

Arabist BBC accused of Anti-Israel Bias – Shameful

Arabist BBC pays a huge sum in a bid to try and “win” in court over overwhelming documentation of anti Israel SHAMEFUL bias

BBC accused of

Anti-Israel Bias – Shameful!


BBC pays £200,000 to ‘cover up report on anti-Israel bias’ – This is not the first time the blog has posted stories about the bias in the coverage from the BBC, and now there’s this.

The BBC has been accused of “shameful hypocrisy” over its decision to spend £200,000 blocking a freedom of information (FOI) request about its reporting in the Middle East.

The corporation, which has itself made extensive use of FOI requests in its journalism, is refusing to release papers about an internal inquiry into whether its reporting has been biased towards Palestine.

The corporation is fighting a landmark High Court action, which starts next week, in a bid to prevent the public finding out what is in the review, which is believed to be critical of the BBC’s coverage in the region.

The BBC’s determination to bury the report has led to speculation that the report was damning in its assessment of the BBC’s coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict that the BBC wants to keep it under wraps at all costs.
