Hamas applauds a cold blooded killer.

Global silence

On Wednesday November 13th Hamas applauded the cold-blooded murder of a 19-year old IDF soldier Eden Atias, from Nazareth Illit.

“Hamas welcomes the soldier stabbing in Afula. This is a natural response to the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinian people and proof of the failure of political negotiations.” Ma’ariv:

Gaza’s Hamas terrorist rulers hailed the teen terrorist as a “hero”.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum wrote on his Facebook page.

“Congratulations to the Palestinian West Bank hero who killed an Israeli soldier in Afula this morning,”

“This is a heroic act of resistance showing that all methods of oppression and terror have not and will not succeed in stopping our people from carrying out jihad and resistance.” Here:

Eden Atias

An Israeli soldier died after he was stabbed multiple times in the neck Wednesday morning by a Palestinian youth on a bus at the central bus station in Afula. The assailant said that the killing was motivated by revenge, as his cousins had been imprisoned in Israel. Muammar Rawarda was sentenced to three life sentences for murdering two Israelis and for the attempted murder of others, while his brother was sentenced to 12 years for various murder attempts, Ma’ariv said.

Muammar Rawarda was released after eight years in prison, as part of the swap for captured IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Here:

As Hamas applauded, Israeli President Shimon Peres condemned the attack.

 “We are appalled at this brutal murder. Every soul in Israel is an entire world in our hearts. I am confident that the government will do everything in its power to ensure events like this never happen again.”

Really? When is Israel going to release this vermin again to carry on his spree of killing innocent people?

How many more sporting venues, children’s playgrounds etc., are Hamas going to name after killers and terrorists?

Atias enlisted only two weeks ago and was still in basic training. He was travelling to his base. He was exhausted and fell asleep on a bus only to be brutally savaged and stabbed to death by Husain Jawadra, a 16 year old youth from a village in the Jenin area, who was in Israel illegally.

Yes he is fine thanks.

Palestinian murdererHe was taken to Poriah hospital, he was slightly wounded in the confrontation. Poor darling. He gets treated in hospital while the innocent young man, who was harming no one, lies dead at the hands of this sub-human.

“I didn’t see a 16 year old boy, I saw a monster and he didn’t deserve to be walking around like he was” said an eyewitness from the hospital to which the terrorist was taken.

Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely stated to Arutz Sheva that the terror attack

“is another proof that the Palestinian Authority is not willing to negotiate with Israel”,

and that its only motivation is to gain

“international legitimacy for terror attacks.” 

We know they don’t want peace. Look at how many times it has been turned down. Even as we speak Abu Mazen is making noises that the  so-called settlements are an obstacle to peace and we know that isn’t the case.

 “In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli — civilian or soldier — on our lands.”

……………..but he insists that a Jewish State must take Arabs.

In 1948 the Arabs choose to go to war rather than accept the UN’s decision to partition Palestine between its Jewish and Arab populations.

In 1967 Israel offered to relinquish the land it had acquired in exchange for peace with its neighbours, the Arab world’s response issued at a summit in Khartoum, was not one no, but three:

No peace with Israel, no negotiations with Israel, no recognition of Israel.’’

In 2000 at Camp David the Arabs were offered a sovereign state with shared control of Jerusalem and billions of dollars in compensation for Palestinian refugees. Yasser Arafat refused the offer and returned to launch the deadly terror war known as the Second Intifada.

In 2008 Ehud Olmert offered Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas a peace agreement that would have guaranteed a Palestinian state in virtually all the West Bank, Gaza, and part of Jerusalem. Once again, the Arabs turned down the offer.

That being the case I for one believe that we should claim what is rightly ours which clearly the Mandate for Palestine proves.

 Mandate for Palestine

The “Mandate for Palestine” is Valid to This Day.

The Mandate survived the demise of the League of Nations. Article 80 of the UN Charter implicitly recognizes the “Mandate for Palestine” of the League of Nations.

This Mandate granted Jews the irrevocable right to settle anywhere in Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, a right unaltered in international law and valid to this day. Jewish settlements in Judaea and Samaria , Gaza and the whole of Jerusalem are legal.

All of western Palestine, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, including the West Bank and Gaza, remains open to Jewish settlement under international law.

Prof. RostowProfessor Eugene Rostow concurred with the ICJ’s opinion as to the “sacredness” of trusts such as the “Mandate for Palestine”:

“‘A trust’—as in Article 80 of the UN Charter—does not end because the trustee dies … the Jewish right of settlement in the whole of western Palestine—the area west of the Jordan—survived the British withdrawal in 1948. … They are parts of the mandate territory, now legally occupied by Israel with the consent of the Security Council.”

The British Mandate left intact the Jewish right to settle in Judaea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip. Explains Professor Rostow:

“This right is protected by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, which provides that unless a trusteeship agreement is agreed upon (which was not done for the Palestine Mandate), nothing in the chapter shall be construed in and of itself to alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which members of the United Nations may respectively be parties.

“The Mandates of the League of Nations have a special status in international law. They are considered to be trusts, indeed ‘sacred trusts.’

“Under international law, neither Jordan nor the Palestinian Arab ‘people’ of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have a substantial claim to the sovereign possession of the occupied territories.”

From Israel: “Give No Quarter!!”

The world is in horrendous shape.  And yet, yet the focus is on us, here …


  1. Shirlee, this is a view that seems to be gaining greater credibility year by year.

    In fact, as you may be aware, there is a conference to be held in NYC this coming Sunday, Nov 17, concerned with advocating for just that purpose.


    I am not an advocate for the total annexation of Judaea and Samaria, preferring to leave the final borders of Israel to the Israelis, but I do wish that they would declare those borders.

    If Israel annexes the “West Bank,” which I do not think is going to happen any time soon, it means that the country is thus responsible for how many additional Arabs? 1.5 million or thereabouts? The numbers are sketchy, as my friend Caroline Glick would emphasize, but it would significantly alter the democratic make-up of the Jewish State of Israel.

    So, would you give those people full citizenship and the right to vote in the Knesset. You may have addressed this particular question at some point in the past and, if so, please forgive me for not recalling just what your stance is on that question.

    But it is the foremost question on the matter if Israel does so.

    Sometimes people say that the status quo is quickly deteriorating and cannot last for long. I disagree. I think that the status quo – when it comes to Arab-Israel relations – can go on and on and on and on. I do not necessarily a good thing, but I certainly think that Israel has gotten to the point where the conflict is manageable.

    Nonetheless, as I have said on many occasions, Israel needs to declare its final borders, remove the IDF to behind those borders and toss the keys over their shoulder.

  2. Israel is well within its rights to annex the whole of the land between the river and the sea as the sovereign state of Israel and the national homeland of the Jewish people with Jerusalem as its eternal capital under international law.

    Israel has no more responsibility for the population of Gaza, or the officially designated UN defined “Palestinian Refugee” population of other countries of which these people are native, than any other state on the planet. Any custom or humanitarian obligation to provide easement is no greater than any other state .In any event it is obviated by national security and its overriding obligation to protect her own population. Just like every other state.

    If Israel did annex the whole of the homeland it must then extend all rights of citizenship to all people living in the land irrespective of race, religion and gender, under international law. It must then enforce the rule of law over all the population.

    If a substantial part of the population refused citizenship, including the obligations that came with it, then that’s pretty much where any useful concept of international law has either run its course or become irrelevant. At best uncharted waters. The inane mutterings of academics. You’re on your own and its the law of the jungle. That’s one law that you must obey.

    In my opinion.

    • If Israel makes claim to the whole of Mandated Palestine, which I think She should, I see no issue with the Arab population remaining, provided they agree to abide by the ‘rule of law’. If not, in simple terms ‘go and live elsewhere’

      I know what most would do, as was evidenced in 2007/8 when it looked liked Abu Mazen was finally going to agree with the very generous offer put on the table by Olmert. There was a huge rush on Arabs taking Israeli citizenship, where hitherto they had refused. Especially Jerusalem Arabs


      “The number of East Jerusalem residents seeking Israeli citizenship has risen sharply in recent months, an Israeli official said Wednesday, as talk of a possible re-division of the city gains momentum.

      The Interior Ministry has received hundreds of applications for citizenship from Arab residents of East Jerusalem over the past few months, instead of the average of several dozen, said ministry spokeswoman Sabine Hadad.

      “The trend appears to stem from Palestinian fears that they could lose Israeli social benefits, such as health care or welfare payments, if their neighborhoods are shifted to Palestinian control in the future. “


      According to a December 2012 ICG report, a total of 13,000 Palestinians in Jerusalem have Israeli citizenship, although this number likely includes residents who came into town from other parts of Israel.

      The major reasons behind the citizenship applications are fears of losing residency or access to Jerusalem, the wish to travel more easily and the desire to grant a better future for one’s children, according to Palestinians interviewed, a community activist and the ICG report.

      “Most Palestinian residents of Jerusalem, regardless of whether they approve or disapprove of the trend, believe that the numbers applying for citizenship are likely to grow,” ICG writes, noting that other researchers have reported much higher numbers from the Ministry of the Interior. (For instance, journalist Danny Rubinstein was told that 12,000 Jerusalemites had applied for citizenship in 2008-2009 alone, ICG said.)

      They are doing it clearly in greater number from information I have. Though thanks to threats, and despite an Arab standing for election in the Jerusalem Municipal election, they stayed away in huge numbers. A very disappointing fact

      • “The trend appears to stem from Palestinian fears that they could lose Israeli social benefits, such as health care or welfare payments, if their neighborhoods are shifted to Palestinian control in the future. “

        They are just as bad as New Zealanders.


        It is interesting that there is remarkable little interest in either the welfare or the safe opinion of the Arabs of Jerusalem when Kerry and the appeasement parties push their concepts of a divided capital.

        • I have plenty more articles on the issue.

          Sure they don’t want to lose social benefits, they couldn’t live without them. They are also concerned about giving their children decent lives with decent educations.

          They also cite the freedom of speech and thought. The right to vote freely and a life with no corruption.

  3. You need to spread this video around I posted it a couple of days ago.It is very telling and a gives a good idea why there will never be peace thanks to the indoctrination of children in the classroom.

    PM Netanyahu showed it to Kerry. I have no idea as to the outcome of the viewing. The video is slowish to load. I had hoped to download it and upload it to YouTube, but I can’t?


  4. Geoff, you write:

    “If Israel did annex the whole of the homeland it must then extend all rights of citizenship to all people living in the land irrespective of race, religion and gender, under international law.”

    I do not believe in “international law” because the UN has delegitimized the concept, but if Israel were to give a few million additional Arabs full rights to national citizenship, would that not compromise Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people?

    Shirlee, you write:

    “If Israel makes claim to the whole of Mandated Palestine, which I think She should, I see no issue with the Arab population remaining, provided they agree to abide by the ‘rule of law’.”

    But would you extend to them full rights to the national franchise?

    These are the tough questions and if Israel were to annex the entirety of Judaea and Samaria much of the world community would scream bloody murder. Furthermore, if it did so and did not extend the national franchise to the Arabs within Israeli domain that scream would become deafening.

    So, what to do?

    Here is my question:

    Why cannot Israel simply annex some modified version of Area C and be done with it?

    I know that Martin Sherman has argued that the annexation of just Area C is impractical because it is too much of a mish-mash of a border. But why cannot Israel annex as much of Judaea and Samaria as necessary to maximize the Jewish population while leaving the rest for a “Palestinian” state?

    If the local Arabs cannot bring themselves to actually agree to a two-state solution, within a negotiated agreement, why not unilaterally force that solution upon them? I understand about the Gaza withdrawal, and the thousands upon thousands of rockets that descended immediately thereafter, but I do not see much of an alternative.

    Negotiations are worthless with the PLO and the PA, because these are terrorist organizations that are not interested in compromise, or even basic human decency.

    The US was naive, but under the Obama administration is becoming hostile.

    The EU is entirely hostile and growing more so by the day.

    And the Arab world? Fuggedaboutit. The Arab-Muslim Middle East is as hard-core racist and homophobic and misogynistic as any place on the planet. They break all the records, without question. And on top of that, they outnumber us by a factor 60 to 70 Arabs for every Jew in the Middle East.

    And what that may mean is that we will need to return to our friend Vladimir Jabotinsky.

    • I agree with all of this. Even the last sentence.

      But it’s up to the Israelis. I do not feel qualified to advise let alone say. Whatever the Israelis reckon is OK by me.

  5. Naftali Bennett wants to keep Area C where some 48,000 Arabs and around 360,000 Israelis settlers live. This area is mainly under Israeli control.

    Area B is largely empty

    Area A is under PA control, with no Jewish presence. Controlled by the PA

    Areas A & B have a population of some 1.8 million Arabs

    He also calls for complete demilitarisation off Areas A & B

    Palestinian built up areas cover 40% of Judaea and Samaria
    Israeli built areas cover 1.7% of Judaea and Samaria

    Over 50% of Judaea and Samaria is empty

  6. Arabs are truly, greedy subhumans.
