There has been a recent push in the US to utilize the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a “go-between” to ensure that aid to Gaza reaches civilians and is not pocketed by Hamas, the terrorist group currently controlling the Palestinian territory. But what this push signifies – and what its long-term ambitions might be – deserves further examination.
The reliance on the PA to be the broker of stability in the Arab-Israeli conflict is ill-considered, because partnering with a group itself implicated in terrorist activities in order to stop terrorism represents a failure of logic. It is easy to forget that the US Congress, in the 1987 Anti-Terror Act, determined the Palestinian Liberation Organisation and its related entities to be sponsors of terrorism and a threat to US interests. The PA fits squarely within this law.
It is the vile behavior of the un-Jews towards Israel that allows the non-Jewish anti-Semites to be open about their own deep seated pathology and bigotry.
Many years ago, posing as a supporter of the PLO, I infiltrated an Arab anti-Israel meeting held in a room above a London pub. There were mostly Arabs present with a sprinkling of non-Arabs, mostly local Brits.
Among the Brits was a man who told the audience that he was a Jew and hated Israel. His self-loathing expressed itself in hostility towards the increasingly embattled Jewish state.
But in all the bile that fell from his lips, he revealed a total lack of knowledge about Judaism and Jewish history – certainly he exhibited no understanding of the rebirth of Israel in its ancestral and biblical homeland or of the immense odds of its survival in the face of enormous Arab and Muslim aggression.
Citizen Patriots Are Fighting Back Marxist propaganda, Critical Race Theory and the deterioration of American schools.
CRT: Teachers union president calls for educators to “teach the truth” and include critical race theory in curriculum CBS. Republicans see critical race theory as new front in ongoing culture wars The Hill.

This is the fourth article in this series on Critical Race Theory (CRT). The earlier three may be seen here, here, and here. Their intent was to document the deteriorating situation across America, and especially in our schools, where curricula increasingly focus on Marxist propaganda that teaches children to hate their own country and seeks to instigate racial divisiveness intended to foment civil strife and eventually, a communist revolution. The series began with an explanation of the purely Marxist origins of CRT, its ideological roots in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the transplant of the Frankfurt School to the U.S. in the 1930s, and the eventual spread of CRT narratives throughout American academia, faith communities, government, media, popular culture, and society in general.
A recent poll of Arab youths in Israel shows that between one-third and half of those questioned still perceive themselves through an ethnic-religious prism, which perhaps explains their sense of disconnect with their national-political representatives.
Last weekend, a survey was published within the framework of a conference on the important issues facing the younger generation of Arabs in Israel. The findings were very surprising.
The survey, conducted by the Haifa-based Baladna Association for Arab youth, which is affiliated with Balad political party, comprised 500 participants and 10 focus groups. The findings paint an interesting picture that needs to sound alarm bells for the entire Arab leadership in Israel and organizations that are active in the Arab sector, particularly with the young generation.
T. Belman. I hope this is true. Haven’t seen it reported elsewhere. Bennett recently make a speech in which he said there will be zero tolerance for balloons or rockets emanating from Gaza. The use of batons and get tough policy for rioters, seems to be evidence that it applies across the board. Way to go, Naftali.
Numerous instances have been recorded of police officers dragging Palestinian protesters to the posts and beating them outside Jerusalem’s Old City

Salah al-Natshe, a 20-year-old resident of East Jerusalem, was on the steps of the Old City’s Damascus Gate on Saturday afternoon. Police orders are that every time concerns are raised about Palestinians gathering at the site, they are to start clearing people from the stairs and the plaza at the gate.
Over the past few weeks, policemen have started to use an old-new weapon: The baton. Police push back those standing in the area and deliver blows to the legs with their batons to those who they don’t think are moving fast enough. “Move back, move back,” shouted one of the police, as he hit Al-Natshe on his legs with the club again and again.
All throughout sub-Saharan Africa — in Nigeria, Mozambique, the Central African Republic, Mali, the Democratic Republic of Congo — Muslims are terrorizing and slaughtering Christians, and have been for many years now.
Nor is there any hope on the horizon, for problems that cannot be correctly and objectively addressed are doomed to persist in perpetuity. As far as the Western “mainstream” is concerned, all such persecution and terrorism is a byproduct of economic grievances — or, in the words of an April 16, 2021 report, titled “How poverty and corruption fuel terrorism across Africa”:
On March 24th, a group of jihadis struck the town of Palma in Mozambique, killing dozens and burning government buildings to the ground. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack — but doubts have been cast over who was behind the siege[.]
A Motion to Recommit (MTR) that would have affirmed the U.S. policy of providing defense articles including munitions, aircraft, and technology to Israel was voted down by 217 House Democrats Thursday afternoon.
The measure would have required President Biden and his administration to develop “contingency plans to provide Israel with necessary defense articles and services” and allowed Biden to “direct the immediate transfer to Israel of such defense articles or defense services… necessary to assist Israel in its defense” when Israel is under military threat.
T. Belman. This a good deal for Bennett. Abbas, didn’t want the government to fail so early on as I previously suggested, making him easy pickings for a compromise.
Government appears poised to pass law barring PA residents from gaining Israeli citizenship via marriage – despite Likud opposition.
Arutz Sheva Staff , Jun 22 , 2021
The Israeli government is poised to pass the annual extension of a law barring Palestinian Authority residents from seeking Israeli citizenship, despite opposition from the Likud and the Religious Zionist Party.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met Monday night with Ministers Ayelet Shaked and Ze’ev Elkin and with United Arab List (Ra’am) chairman MK Mansour Abbas in an attempt to reach a compromise that will allow the approval of the extension of the Family Reunification Law.
Based on official data from Open VAERS and the CDC, 5,993 Americans have died out of 146,171,792 Americans who are fully vaccinated as of June 11. This corresponds to a ratio of about four deaths out of 100,000 who are fully vaccinated.
When VAERS death rates are compared with COVID-19 vaccination rates from December to June, and odd pattern emerges: Vaccine-related deaths decline just as vaccination rates reach their peak in April (Graph 1). This implies that the VAERS death rate started at 18 per 100,000 on the 1st of February, then dropped to around 3.1 per 100,000 on the 1st of June (Table). If this remarkable trend really took place, why didn’t it make headlines?

China deserves credit for a remarkable feat of strategic improvisation in translating a public health crisis into a large economical and geopolitical advance at the expense of the West.
It is time for Americans to contemplate the possibility that the United States may be surpassed as the world’s most influential country. The Chinese have just won the greatest strategic victory in the last 30 years since the disintegration of the Soviet Union. However it originated, the novel coronavirus was repressed within China by recourse to draconian measures but was deliberately permitted to infect the rest of the world, enabling China to exploit the blunderbuss Western lockdowns and make a giant leap towards economic preeminence in the world.
Billions of dollars are at stake, not just for the mRNA vaccine makers, but for efforts to develop new antiviral drugs, ones that can be patented and sold at a significant markup.
The April COVID surge in India is an interesting microcosm of what went wrong in this pandemic—and what went right.
As cases and deaths began to mount exponentially, a new wave of terrifying headlines and images also began to ripple across the West, accompanied by footage reminiscent of those first videos out of Wuhan and Iran in the early days of the pandemic.

The new June 11, 2021, data dump on VAERS is stale, by design, I believe. Personally, I’ve believed for months the CDC has been deliberately dragging their feet getting the data posted to VAERS for political reasons. Weeks behind but there’s more to what’s been going on than we knew.
June 11th dead: 5,993. But, are those the real numbers of dead Americans? It’s estimated that only 10% of ‘events’ get reported. Adverse reactions: 358,379. You can see the posting of all the categories plus all the reports by ID number here.
T. Belman. This is what is wrong with allowing the DoD to rule the territories. Their decision is based on security and the Geneva Convention. If the government extended sovereignty to these lands, the Government would be in charge and their decision would be based on the rule of law.
But even then the High Court would put the matter in the hands of the police as they do on the Temple Mount when security is at stake..
Finally, as a matter of law, it must be applied equally or the Jewish settlers could claim discrimination.
Military says Evyatar was established unlawfully and ‘undermines the IDF’s ability to maintain security in the area’; 4 Palestinians have died in clashes nearby in recent weeks

The Israel Defense Forces has rejected out of hand an appeal against the planned evacuation and demolition of an illegal West Bank outpost.
Settlers of the Evyatar outpost had hoped to stop the planned evacuation, but the military denied their request on Sunday. “The Evyatar outpost was established illegally. Everything was done in complete violation of the law and without any proprietary or planning agreements,” the IDF Central Command wrote.
For the past year and a half of COVID, we have been told by those supposedly in the know, to “follow the science.” Those who question the science are at best called names, like “deniers” or “racists”, and at worst, lose their jobs and reputations, and are banned from social media.
One gets an appreciation for what scientists of centuries ago endured as they questioned science dogma of the day such as the Earth being flat or the Sun revolving around Earth. Such censorship was attributed to the medieval scientific mindset centuries ago long before the enlightened age of Facebook, Twitter, and CNN.
T. Belman. This report garnered only a recommendation to deduct only 5% of money that goes to the Palestinians.
The report, completed in February, includes dozens of examples of encouragement of violence and demonization of Israel and of Jews.

Palestinian children learn Islamic lessons on summer vacation as COVID-19 restrictions ease in Gaza.
The European Union has released its report on Palestinian Authority textbooks four months after its completion, showing instances of antisemitism and incitement to violence.
Friday’s release of the report – excerpts from which were first published in The Jerusalem Post earlier this month – sparked condemnations across the European Parliament.
