Why Palestinians want to be Israeli citizens

By Kahina, January 16, 2011

By Jackson Diehl, Washington Post:

One of the givens of the Middle East peace process is that Palestinians are eager to be free of rule by Israel and to live in a state of their own. That's why a new poll of the Arabs of East Jerusalem is striking: It shows that more of those people actually would prefer to be citizens of Israel than of a Palestinian state.


"Plan B"

By Kahina, January 10, 2011

Israel's foreign minister has his 'Plan B' in response to impasse in talks with Palestinians. His proposal would avoid diplomatic stagnation while simultaneously skirting the conflict's core issues. The annual conference of Israeli ambassadors were told yesterday that the plan is now undergoing final revisions, but is basically submission-ready.


Who’s Afraid of Israeli Democracy?

By Kahina, December 30, 2010

Haven’t you heard, Israeli democracy is in danger. That’s the latest media talking point on Israel. And where is the threat to Israeli democracy coming from? From its democracy.

Is this something to do with a trends in coffee-drinking, hairstyles or body waxing?

Yesterday in Tel Aviv, Geert Wilders praises Israel and repeats that Jordan is Palestine. Daphne Anson reports here:


I'm waiting to see how the JC reports on it... (if at all).

Update 10th December: No reporting in this week's Jewish Chronicle on the meeting.


In Praise of Sarah Palin - Oh Yes She Can!

By Kahina, December 3, 2010

With President Sarah Palin, the US will get a sane and moral foreign policy, totally different from Obama's wacky prostration to the King of Saudi. Palin will work to reverse the damage done by Obama's Medical Piracy Act -- a big, big job. And best of all, Palin gives a wonderful example of what women (and men) can achieve. Sarah Palin is a normal person with a normal life who decided to fix what's rotten in Anchorage -- and now Washington, D.C.

Why do the international media ignore statements made by the "moderate" Fatah in the West?

By Kahina, December 2, 2010

The Western-backed ruling Fatah faction in the West Bank has just concluded its fifth convention in Ramallah with a series of statements that will make it virtually impossible for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to reach a deal with Israel that includes any compromises.

A statement issued by the Fatah Revolutionary Council, which consists of more than 100 Fatah officials, said no to almost every proposal or idea that could have paved the way for some kind of a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.


Will JfJfP take up the case of this Palestininan blogger?

By Kahina, November 19, 2010

A Palestinian blogger faces life imprisonment for criticizing Islam on Facebook. The 26-year-old blogger, Waleed al-Husseini, was arrested recently by the Western-backed Palestinian Authority security forces in the West Bank.

His crime: He created a Facebook account named Allah and "insulted the divine essence."

Those who fund the Palestinian Authority must put pressure on its leaders to respect freedom of speech and refrain from imposing Islamic Sharia laws in the West Bank.


"Israeli-style profiling of air passengers'?

By Kahina, November 16, 2010


The only answer at this point, and even it is not perfect, would be to
institute Israeli-style profiling of air passengers. The Israelis have
run an efficient and terror-attack-free air service for years, without
all these invasive security measures.


"Independent Jewish Voices warn of the new McCarthyism"

By Kahina, November 12, 2010


OTTAWA—Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he has the bruises to prove Canada’s unwavering support for Israel in the face of growing anti-Israeli sentiment, an apparent reference to the country’s lost bid a seat on the UN Security Council.

“Whether it is at the United Nation or any other international forum, the easy thing to do is simply to just get along and go along with this anti-Israeli rhetoric,” Harper told an interparliamentary conference on combating anti-Semitism.


Why Do American Jews Vote for Their Enemies ???

By Kahina, October 27, 2010

Interesting post from America Thinker:

American blacks vote Obama for the color of his skin. American Leftists vote O because they hope he will shaft this country more royally than anybody else has so far.

So what excuse do the Jews have? The black and the radical leftist vote O for reasons I can understand. Obama is black, even if his life experience has no relationship to the average American black person -- none at all. And Obama is a radical, so even the radicals have a reason. However, why does Obama keep his favourable standing with American Jews? It makes no sense.
