    Israel supports Palestinian incitement !!!!!

    By Ted Belman

    Incitement is a government tool to ready their subjects and the world for an intended war. Incitement is particularly employed by the PA, Hamas and UNRWA to instill and maintain a hatred of Jews/Israelis. It contains a two-pronged attack. It promotes grievances, the Jews stole our land and are oppressing us, and it demonizes Jews, the Jews are Nazis, sons of apes and pigs, drink our blood, steal our organs, etc. The grievances justify going to war against Israel and the demonization justifies a second holocaust.

    So why then is Israel paying lip service to it’s cessation and worse, actively lobbying the US and Canada, inter alia, against withholding funds to the PA, which gives some of the money to Hamas, and UNRWA.

    Maayana Miskin report: Bibi Sought Support for PA Hate Education

      Israel’s leaders may be among those making it possible for the Palestinian Authority to teach hate and violence to a new generation of children, according to new findings from veteran investigative reporter David Bedein.

      [..] Officials in the White House explained that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had asked the U.S. to continue providing aid to the PA, including to PA schools and to UNRWA, one of the primary sources of incitement. “I could hardly believe my ears,” Bedein told Arutz Sheva.

    Previouly, Bedein reported USAID Funds PA Schools for Incitement and In UN, PA Maps Erase All of Israel

      “The state of Israel continues to side with a continuation of US funding for the UNRWA education system without attaching any conditions, that it cease calling for the destruction of Israel in its schoolbooks.”

    Maayana Miskin now repots ‘Bibi Pushing US to Fund Hamas Schools’

      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, not the Obama administration, is behind a push to continue U.S. funding for Hamas-linked schools in Gaza, says investigative journalist David Bedein, head of Israel Resource Review.

      “The aid is being renewed not due to the policy of the Obama administration or a decision from Congress, as has been reported in the Israeli media, but at the initiative of Israel’s government,” he declared.

      In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Bedein explained that he has spoken to many members of Congress, and has repeatedly been told that they agree U.S. aid should not go to Gaza as long as incitement against Israel continues – but that Israel’s government has been pressuring them to send it anyway.

      “We showed them proof of incitement in schools and in the media, of the cooperation between UNRWA and Hamas,” Bedein recalled. “But a very strong Israeli lobby pushed to have aid reinstated unconditionally.”

      In the UNRWA school system, he noted, roughly 90% of teachers are affiliated with Hamas.

    Now here’s the kicker.

      The reason Israel undermines attempts to pressure UNRWA, Bedein said, is “a clear financial conflict of interest.” Gaza is a major market for Israeli products, and Israeli firms are heavily involved in projects involving the Palestinian Authority, he explained.

    Moshe Dann asks,When Will Israel’s Foreign Ministry Stop Supporting UNRWA?

      As long as Israel’s own Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to support the United Nations agency that aids Palestinian Authority Arabs, the U.S. and Canada are not going to cease funding UNRWA’s activities.

    Most recently Ros-Lehtinen Caves on PA Funds

      Ros-Lehtinen, chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, informed the Obama administration she would release $50 million in economic support funds for the Palestinian Security Forces and $148 million in other assistance.

      Ros-Lehtinen cited the administration’s certification that payment of the funds were in the ‘national security interests of the United States’ as well as word that the government of Israel did not object to the assistance.

    Pres G W Bush in his 2002 speech in support of Palestinian statehood, said

      I’ve said in the past that nations are either with us or against us in the war on terror. To be counted on the side of peace, nations must act.

      Every leader actually committed to peace will end incitement to violence in official media, and publicly denounce homicide bombings. Every nation actually committed to peace will stop the flow of money, equipment and recruits to terrorist groups seeking the destruction of Israel – including Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hizbullah. Every nation actually committed to peace must block the shipment of Iranian supplies to these groups, and oppose regimes that promote terror, like Iraq. And Syria must choose the right side in the war on terror by closing terrorist camps and expelling terrorist organisations.

      Leaders who want to be included in the peace process must show by their deeds an undivided support for peace. And as we move toward a peaceful solution, Arab states will be expected to build closer ties of diplomacy and commerce with Israel, leading to full normalisation of relations between Israel and the entire Arab world.

    None of this has happened. Quite the contrary. The PA, not to mention Hamas, are fostering a culture of hate rather than peace. The Arab states for their part haven’t moved an inch even to help Obama kick state the negotiations.

    Now that “Palestine” has been accepted as a member of UNESCO we should be demanding that it be forced to comply with its principles.

      1) This would entail the PA’s removal of incitement to hate from all text books; the establishment of freedom of expression and information; the provision of free and full access to education for women (under UNESCO’s Education For All programme) and the recognition and protection of Jewish and Christian heritage sites.

      2) PA reconciliation with Hamas must be conditioned upon the latter’s acceptance of the three EU principles: acceptance of Israel, acceptance of prior agreements and a commitment to non-violence. And finally, the probation must require zero tolerance of terrorism and a return to bilateral peace negotiations without preconditions.

    So I ask, why isn’t the Israeli government demanding an end to incitement just as vigorously as it is demanding to be recognized as a Jewish State. Why is it supporting the flow of money which sustains this incitement?

    Why indeed.

    8 Comments to Israel supports Palestinian incitement !!!!!

    1. yamit82 says:

      I have commented several times here that this conflict of interests is what keeps Israel from separating economically from the PA. They are not only Israel’s largest trading partner they support our indigenous low tech industries that produce basics like building materials, processed food products and agricultural produce. Their importers use our ports and our trucks. Most of our commercial and financial services. We supply them with fuels medical equipment and medicines just to name some. They use our currency and we maintain a degree of control on their economy because we control their money supply.

      Since the bulk of their disposable income is spent in Israel it is only logical that Israel would wish to see foreign aid flow into the PA. Most of it eventually winds up in our pockets.

      Isn’t life cynical?

    2. Ted Belman says:

      Short term gain, hopefully not long term pain.
      Even if we don’t stop the money, there is no reason why we don’t demand incitement stops jsut as we demand they recognize us.

    3. Laura says:

      Ros-Lehtinen cited the administration’s certification that payment of the funds were in the ‘national security interests of the United States’ as well as word that the government of Israel did not object to the assistance.

      I don’t care that the Israeli government doesn’t object to money for the PA. American taxpayer money should not be going to terrorists.

      Voltaire, a wise anti-Semite who remarked correctly that should the Jews get their own state, they would sell it.

    5. yamit82 says:

      Pondering on the recent past in this country, the miracles are clearly evident. No other country in the world has worked so hard to destroy itself, and failed so miserably. Only with supernatural interference is it possible that this country still exists, not to mention grows and thrives.

      The Oslso tragedy saw Israel recognize the biggest terrorist of our generation as a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. We recognized the existence of a people whose only reason for existence is to destroy the Jewish State. We unilaterally drove Jewish civilians from their homes in southern Israel, dug up the bones of our dead to be reburied elsewhere, in order to give our enemies a Jew free part of our homeland to call their own. Today we are being bombarded with missiles from this gift we gave them. Were we a normal country we would simply take back what we gave away and drive our enemies out. Instead we appeal to foreign nations to get them to stop shooting at us. Why should any foreign nation intervene in a war that we refuse to win?

      To add insult to injury, our “right wing” (sic,) Prime Minister has announced that he will prepare a suggested outline of the future borders of the Jewish State and the new PLO one he hopes to help establish. With leaders like this who needs enemies? We are consistently demonstrating to the world that we do not believe in our own sovereignty! How is it possible for such a country to maintain its sovereignty?

      PLO spokesman, Naabil Shaat, actually recently stated that we are in a state of war. Yet we continue to deny this reality and choose to relate to each attack against our population as an individual criminal or “terrorist” attack, rather than the act of war it really is. Rather than destroy our enemies and drive them out of our homeland.

      We are in dire need of a national couch.

    6. HCQ says:

      Voltaire, a wise anti-Semite who remarked correctly that should the Jews get their own state, they would sell it.

      As if only Jews sell out their own; what a terrible stereotype. Look at U.S. politicians; they’ve been selling the U.S.(and the principles it was founded on)out for decades.

    7. HCQ says:

      I don’t care that the Israeli government doesn’t object to money for the PA. American taxpayer money should not be going to terrorists.

      Yep. The logic defies does it not?
      The whores in Israel’s government(some, not all)are okay with it so that makes it just fine. And so what if the U.S. is bankrupt and really can’t afford it.

    8. BlandOatmeal says:

      I’d leave out the “terrorist” thing: The whole “terrorist” bugaboo is baloney. G. W. Bush first used that term, practically coined it, after a deliberate attack on the US by citizens of Saudi Arabia. The problem wasn’t that they were “terrorists”. The problem is that those Saudi citizens, trained to hate America in mosques funded by the Saudi royal family, attacked the US and killed Americans. Whether they did this to strike “terror” in our hearts (which they didn’t do), or simply to kill us, is beside the point. Were the Japanese trying to SCARE (TERRORIZE) us at Pearl Harbor? No, I think they were trying to kill us; and I think those Arabs were trying the same thing. If they had a nuclear-tipped ICBM at their disposal, instead of box cutters and airline tickets, they would have used it — not to terrorize us, but to kill us: The same way HAMAS “terrorists” have already killed dozens of American citizens in Israel.

      Why does HAMAS kill Americans and Jews, along with other Israelis?

      * From an interview, (‘Climbing Mount Everest is work for Supermen’, New York Times, 18th March 1923) on being asked why he wanted to climb Mount Everest:
      * “Why did you want to climb Mount Everest?” This question was asked of George Leigh Mallory, who was with both expeditions toward the summit of the world’s highest mountain, in 1921 and 1922, and who is now in New York. He plans to go again in 1924, and he gave as the reason for persisting in these repeated attempts to reach the top, “Because it’s there.”

      They do it because they are there; and they do it any way they can.
