Op-Ed: In This Struggle, Israel Can Prevail
Dr. Mordechai Kedar


Arutz-7, November 20, 2014

...Israel must announce as clearly as possible that Jerusalem is not a subject in any negotiations with anyone. It was never the capital of any entity connected to the Arab or Islamic world and was never ruled by a king, sultan, emir or caliph, so that there is no historical or legal basis for demanding that it be the capital of any state other than Israel.

Israel has to remind the entire world that Judea, Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem were areas occupied by Jordan for 19 years, from May 1948 until June 1967. Had the Arab world felt it was just and necessary, it could have established a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital then, without anyone in the world disputing it.  The Arabs  refrained from doing that for the 7000 days in which Jordan had control of the area and therefore have no right to demand from Israel what they did not demand from themselves.

Israel must immediately shut down all the PA institutions in Jerusalem and any governmental entity that is not of the state of Israel. Sovereignty cannot be shared or compromised on, because he who compromises with regard to his sovereignty loses it.

The police must issue a restraining order against all Islamic Movement activists, first and foremost to Sheikh Raad Salah and his deputy Sheikh Kamal el Khatib.  After that, the possibility of issuing an order forbidding them to leave Um El Fahem and Kafr Kana should be considered.

Israel must immediately shut down all the Hamas TV stations broadcasting in Judea and Samaria....

Reactions In the Arab Press To The Jerusalem Synagogue Attack: Congratulations and Justification, with a Few Condemnations
Special Dispatch No.5888


MEMRI, November 20, 2014

The vast majority of Arab heads of state expressed no reaction to the November 18, 2014 Palestinian attack at a Jerusalem synagogue, while a few condemned it. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud 'Abbas denounced it, but at the same time condemned "the damage to Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy places."[1] A similar denunciation was issued by Jordan, whose state minister for media affairs, Muhammad Al-Momani, who is also deputy foreign minister, announced that the Jordanian government "condemns attacks on all civilians, and condemns all violent and terrorist operations and terrorism against civilians, whatever their origin."[2] However, the lower house of the Jordanian parliament opened its session yesterday, November 19, with the first verse of the Koran, in memory of the two attackers, whom it termed "martyrs."[3]

Egypt, for its part, expressed reservations about the attack, in a Foreign Ministry announcement condemning violent operations and stressing Egypt's support for a peace agreement based on the 1967 borders that will preserve the Arab identity of East Jerusalem.[4] Likewise, Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmad Aal Khalifa tweeted his condemnation of "the killing of innocent people in a house of worship."...

Column One: Responding to the slaughter
Caroline B. Glick


The Jerusalem Post, November 20, 2014

Photo by: Kobi Gideon/GPO    

The horrible truth is that all of the anti-Jewish slaughters perpetrated by our Arab neighbors have been motivated to greater or lesser degrees by Islamic Jew-hatred.
 
What we are seeing in Jerusalem today is not simply Palestinian terrorism. It is Islamic jihad. No one likes to admit it. The television reporters insist that this is the worst possible scenario because there is no way to placate it.

There is no way to reason with it.

So what else is new? The horrible truth is that all of the anti-Jewish slaughters perpetrated by our Arab neighbors have been motivated to greater or lesser degrees by Islamic Jew-hatred. The only difference between the past hundred years and now is that today our appeasement-oriented elite is finding it harder to pretend away the obvious fact that we cannot placate our enemies.

No “provocation” by Jews drove two Jerusalem Arabs to pick up meat cleavers and a rifle and slaughter rabbis in worship like sheep and then mutilate their bodies.

No “frustration” with a “lack of progress” in the “peace process,” can motivate people to run over Jewish babies or attempt to assassinate a Jewish civil rights activist.

The reason that these terrorists have decided to kill Jews is that they take offense at the fact that in Israel, Jews are free. They take offense because all their lives they have been taught that Jews should live at their mercy, or die by their sword....

Battle of Jerusalem: What Congress should do now

The New York Post, November 19, 2014

Let the massacre of the rabbis in Israel serve as a wake-up call to the new Congress that will be seated in Washington come January. May the solons assert their powers as our enemies gird for the next engagement in the Battle of Jerusalem.

I’ve been using the phrase Battle of Jerusalem for two decades. It connotes the full fight — military, diplomatic and political — as Israel’s adversaries try to wrest Judaism’s holiest city from the Jewish state.

The fact that three of the four rabbis hatcheted to death in the latest attack were Americans underscores the fact that Congress has a stake in this battle. Yet for decades it has shrunk from asserting its full powers.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan made that point to me in the 1990s, when the senator visited the Forward, which I was editing. He was frustrated at the State Department’s pussy-footing on Jerusalem....

Iran's 'Big Lie' on Israel
Mark Langfan


Newsmax, November 19, 2014

Iran’s Supreme Leader Hosseini Khamenei’s propaganda-machine is on warp-speed.

Nonstop, Khamenei’s twitter feed is posting claims like “#Iran considers the use of WMDs as an unforgivable sin. Nuclear energy for all and nukes for none.”

Khamenei has never published his actual "no-nuke’ fatwa, or religious edict. Nevertheless, President Obama has touted Khamenei’s “no-nukes” claims as real. But then, Obama will swallow anything Iran has to say, let alone whatever the “Supreme Leader” himself states.

Almost two-years ago, I wrote about a hypothetical Iranian EMP nuclear attack on Saudi Arabia that would be low-casualty and “Shariah compliant.” Others have written how Khamenei’s fatwa doesn’t exist. Now, I’ve a simpler approach: Khamenei is flat–out lying the “big lie” ala Adolf Hitler.

Hitler called his propaganda theory “the big lie.” Hitler explained: Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it....

Iraq and U.S. Find Some Potential Sunni Allies Have Already Been Lost
Ben Hubbard


The New York Times, November 15, 2014

Now, as the United States and the Iraqi government urgently seek to enlist the Sunni tribes to fight the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, they are struggling to undo the militants’ success in co-opting or conquering the majority of them.

Officials admit little success in wooing new Sunni allies, beyond their fitful efforts to arm and supply the tribes who were already fighting the Islamic State — and mostly losing. So far, distrust of the Baghdad government’s intentions and its ability to protect the tribes has won out.

“There is an opportunity for the government to work with the tribes, but the facts on the ground are that ISIS has infiltrated these communities and depleted their ability to go against it,” said Ahmed Ali, an Iraq analyst at the Institute for the Study of War. “Time is not on the Iraqi government’s side.”

Much of the Islamic State’s success at holding Sunni areas comes from its deft manipulation of tribal dynamics. Portraying itself as a defender of Sunnis who for years have been abused by Iraq’s Shiite-majority government, the Islamic State has offered cash and arms to tribal leaders and fighters, often allowing them local autonomy as long as they remain loyal....

Large-Scale Hamas Terror Cell Busted
Tova Dvorin


Arutz-7, November 21, 2014

Hamas terrorists in Gaza (Reuters)

Israeli security forces busted a major Hamas terror cell aimed specifically at carrying out terror attacks in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, Palestinian Arab sources said Friday.

The terror cell is closely related to the crackdown by the Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) and police over the summer, which saw 93 Hamas terrorists arrested for an alleged coup being planned against the Palestinian Authority (PA), sources told Walla! News.

The sources added that the targets were specifically against "settlers" - referring to Jewish civilians in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem - and IDF soldiers. Several terror attacks in the past couple of weeks have been prevented as part of the ISA bust....
