‘Arabs, Israel should sit together,’ says Bahrain minister

dubai • The foreign minister of staunch US ally Bahrain has called for the creation of a regional grouping of Arab states with historic foe Israel, as well as Iran and Turkey, a newspaper reported yesterday.

“Israel, Iran, Turkey and Arab states should sit together in one organisation,” Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmad Al Khalifa was quoted in the pan-Arab daily Al Hayat as saying.

“Aren’t we all members of a global organisation called the United Nations? Why not (come together) on a regional basis? This is the only way to solve our problems. There’s no other way to solve them, now or in 200 years.”

Al Hayat, which interviewed the Bahraini chief diplomat in New York, said he had proposed the establishment of a regional bloc in a speech to the UN General Assembly.

Bahrain’s crown prince, Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, met Israeli officials during World Economic Forum summits in 2000 and 2003, while Sheikh Khaled met Israeli counterpart Tzipi Livni at the UN last year.

But political groupings in Bahrain, which is ruled by a Sunni dynasty and has a Shia majority, resist any attempt at normalisation of ties with Israel.

“Why don’t we sit together even if we disagree, even if we don’t recognise each other? Let’s be in a single organisation in order to overcome the difficult stage through which the Middle East is passing — a stage that remains hostage to the past,” Sheikh Khaled told Al Hayat, referring to the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict.

Editorial: Mahmoud Abbas the Moderate?

Yesterday, I had the unexpected pleasure of watching the great Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian people bemoaning the violence that has been planned against his person and the de-facto violence that has been committed against his own goons by Hamas. Yet, during the speech he didn’t miss an opportunity to blame Israel as the reason for the violence.

If some Jews on this globe decide to view Abbas as a benevolent moderate, they must be the same ones who believed that the Nazis had nothing against the Jews, and all they wanted was to put the starch back in the collective backbones of the defeated German people. After all, it was the Jews who did the stabbing of Germany in the back in the First World War. The pages of the Jewish newspapers were also full of the wisdom of the opinions of the Jewish leadership at the time. You were hearing the expression of the clear Jewish logic that was prevalent before the Second World War. “Why be afraid of the Nazis, when we all know that we are the only ones who can speak with them?” — meaning Yiddish. The Jews were also reasoning that since they are the ones who are best skilled and most educated, the Nazis will “need us and won’t let anything to happen to us.”

It was Rabin who was the first in the post-Holocaust era to come up with the new version of the “they need us” folly. “You can only make peace with your enemy,” he said. This declaration is as stupid as it sounds. You don’t make peace with your enemy; you defeat them first and then deprive them of their leadership that was leading them against you. After that you can start being friendly with your former enemies and begin a dialogue.

If you can’t defeat your enemy then the only thing you can do is to wait for generations until a new generation and time will lead your enemy to a new reality. The most important issue that you must make your enemy understand is to let them know that you are here to stay and that the only thing they can do is accept you as a historical reality. Instead, what is taking place is the Peace Now activist view that every Arab terrorist is a potential peace partner of Israel. The Arabs, on the other hand, view the Jews, who are among the most ancient people of the region, as foreign intruders that have no business to live in that region of the earth.

Mahmoud Abbas is the battered president of the Palestinian Authority, who has lost all his authority to the bloodthirsty and Israel-hating Hamas. The sad part about Abbas is that his authority has never come from the Palestinians but was handed to him by the peace-hungry West, mainly the Israelis and the Americans. Yet the peaceful Abbas has never had peace in his heart toward Israel and the Jews. He was and is a bona fide terrorist, and a classic anti-Semite. He is one of the founding fathers of Al Fatah, the foremost controlling political group within the PLO. Abbas the man is purported to be very intelligent, has studied law in Egypt and finished his doctorate studies in Moscow. As a result of his studies, he became the author of several books. In his supposedly scholarly work he wrote that the real number of Jews who died during the Holocaust was a mere few hundred thousand instead of the six million that the Jews were claiming.

He not only downplayed the number of Jewish Holocaust victims but also accused the Jews of collaborating with the Nazis.

This is the real Abbas, deliberately dishonest to the core.

Unfortunately the road of lies and deceit that Abbas chooses to travel on does not lead to the peace that he promised to the Israelis, nor does it lead to the victory over the Jews and Israel as he and his partner Arafat promised to their people. Instead of leading the Palestinians to the gates of nirvana his people have been led by the Abbas-Arafat duo straight to the gates of the abyss of a civil war. It is not that Abbas doesn’t know the truth, but he chooses to lie and tries to cheat because that is what he was doing all his life when wanting to gain success.

This is the same man, who with all his guile was playing the role of a pragmatist and a peaceful man. No, there can be nothing further from the truth. Abbas is instead a patient man who will never deviate from his purpose but his methods can always change according to his needs. Not once did the man give up the demand that the Palestinians have an unalterable right of
return. That of course on practical terms would mean the destruction of Israel.

He is currently working together with various terrorist groups that are mortal enemies of the state of Israel but are also the enemies of Hamas. Yet the greed forces both Olmert and Bush to sit down with that sly Jew hater and to perpetuate the continued existence of this man who represents nothing but his past failures.

With Abbas’ stock at zero points with the Palestinians, what is the incentive for the other Arab countries, Israel and the United States to prop up this unsuccessful nobody who has lost an open election to the religious fundamentalist group of Hamas, and then dramatically lost an armed conflict to them just recently. Why waste our time, money and the lives of many to prop up this politically dead agent for the sake of chasing a dream whose time has not yet come … namely peace in our lifetime?

The reason is because Abbas like his mentor and predecessor Arafat does not want peace, but victory at the expense of the existence of Israel.

‘palestinian’ Death Cult: ‘Hamas Islamic Jihad’ terrorists VS “moderate” Fatah Terrorists

Quick Takes: News From Israel You May Have Missed

Terrorist groups, including Hamas and the Popular Resistance Committees, have reportedly seized large quantities of CIA security files that were stored at major compounds of militias associated with the U.S.-backed Fatah organization.

“The CIA files we seized, which include documents, CDs, taped conversations and videos, are more important than all the American weapons we obtained the last two days as we took over the traitor Fatah’s positions,” said Muhammad Abdel-El, spokesman for the Hamas-allied Popular Resistance Committees.

The terrorist group has been accused of carrying out anti-U.S. attacks, including a 2003 bombing of an American convoy in Gaza that killed three U.S. contractors.

The spokesman said the CIA documents they browsed so far contain “information about the collaboration between Fatah and the Israeli and American security organizations; CIA methods on how to prevent attacks, how to chase and follow after cells of Hamas and the Committees; plans about Fatah assassinations of members of Hamas and other organizations; and American studies on the security situation in Gaza.”

He claimed the documents also detailed CIA networks in other Arab countries and “how to help beat Islamic allies of Hamas in other Arab countries, including Egypt and Jordan.”

Hamas’s Al Aksa Television this week also broadcast footage of Hamas gunmen brandishing American assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, rocket launchers and ammunition the U.S. reportedly provided to Fatah over the past few months. Hamas fighters also showed what they said were 10 American-provided armored personnel carriers the terror group said it seized from Fatah security compounds it took over Tuesday.

More Aid To Abbas

Even after the Hamas takeover of U.S.-backed Palestinian security compounds in Gaza and seizure of large quantities of American weapons, the Bush administration is contemplating sending more weapons to the Palestinians and is asking Israel to make security concessions to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli and Palestinian diplomatic sources said.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced the U.S. will resume “full assistance to the Palestinian government,” lifting an economic and political embargo against the Palestinian government enacted after Hamas came to power in March 2006.

Rice said she will ask Congress to rework a previous $86 million aid package to Abbas that was lowered following concerns by some lawmakers that some of the money would end up financing terrorism.

According to Palestinian and Israeli diplomatic sources, the bulk of the $86 million is slated to be used to fund Force 17, which serves as de facto police units in the West Bank.

Many members of Force 17 are also openly members of the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, which took responsibility together with Islamic Jihad for every suicide bombing in Israel during the last two years.

A Palestinian diplomatic source told WND the PA wants to use some of the money “to purchase equipment to help secure the Palestinian Authority against coups by other competing groups attempting to hijack our government.”

Christians in Gaza Must Accept Muslim Law

Christians can continue living safely in the Gaza Strip only if they accept Islamic law, including a ban on alcohol and on women roaming publicly without proper head coverings, an Islamist militant leader in Gaza told WND in an exclusive interview.

The militant leader said Christians in Gaza who engage in “missionary activity” will be “dealt with harshly.”

“I expect our Christian neighbors to understand the new Hamas rule means real changes. They must be ready for Islamic rule if they want to live in peace in Gaza,” said Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Jihadia Salafiya, an Islamic outreach movement that recently announced the opening of a “military wing” to enforce Muslim law in Gaza.

Jihadia Salafiya is suspected of attacking a United Nations school in Gaza last month after the school allowed boys and girls to participate in the same sporting event. One person was killed in that attack.

“Jihadia Salafiya and other Islamic movements will ensure Christian schools and institutions show publicly what they are teaching to be sure they are not carrying out missionary activity. No more alcohol on the streets.

“All women, including non-Muslims, need to understand they must be covered at all times while in public,” Abu Asqer told WND.

“Also the activities of Internet cafes, pool halls and bars must be stopped,” he said. “If it goes on, we’ll attack these things very harshly.”

Abu Saqer accused the leadership of the Gaza Christian community of “proselytizing and trying to convert Muslims with funding from American evangelicals.”

“This missionary activity is endangering the entire Christian community in Gaza,” he said.

Abu Saqer claimed there was “no need” for the thousands of Christians in Gaza to maintain a large number of institutions in the territory.

About 2,000 Christians live in the Gaza Strip, which has a population of over 1 million.
