    Palestinians Plan Violence to Force the US to Extract Concessions from Israel

    by Khaled Abu Toameh, GATESTONE INSTITUTE

      The Palestinian leadership is hoping that anti-US demonstrations and uprisings will scare Obama and force him to exert even more pressure on Israel.

    There are many signs that the Palestinian Authority is seeking to escalate tensions in the West Bank ahead of US President Barack Obama’s visit to the region next month.

    Although the Palestinian Authority probably does not want an all-out confrontation between Palestinians and Israelis at this stage, some Palestinian Authority officials in Ramallah believe that a “mini-intifada” would serve the Palestinians’ interests, especially on the eve of Obama’s visit.


    The officials hope that scenes of daily clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians in the West Bank will prompt Obama to exert pressure on the Israeli government to make far-reaching concessions to the Palestinian Authority.

    This is why the Palestinian Authority leadership has been encouraging its constituents lately to wage a “popular intifada” against Israel, each time finding another excuse to initiate confrontations between Palestinians and Israel.

    Now the Palestinian Authority is using the issue of Palestinian prisoners who are on hunger strike in Israeli prisons as an excuse to call for street protests and clashes with the Israel Defense Forces.

    In recent days, dozens of Palestinian protesters have been injured in clashes with IDF soldiers in various parts of the West Bank. The protests are being held in solidarity with four hunger-strikers.

    Before that, the Palestinian Authority used the issue of settlements as an accuse to call for widespread protests in the West Bank.

    Before that, the Palestinian Authority leadership encouraged Palestinians to protest against Israeli “plans” to destroy the Aqsa Mosque and replace it with the Third Temple.

    By encouraging a “popular intifada,” the Palestinian Authority leadership is hoping to bring the Palestinian issue back to the top of the agenda of the US Administration and Israel.

    Palestinian Authority officials have in recent months expressed concern over the lack of interest in the Palestinian issue both in the US and Israel.

    The Palestinians have been absent from speeches delivered by Obama over the past few months, and the majority of parties that ran in the last Israeli elections did not even mention the Palestinian issue.

    But now that all eyes are once again turned toward the Middle East in anticipation of Obama’s planned visit, the Palestinian Authority is working hard to draw the world’s attention to the Palestinian issue, and hoping to achieve its goal by encouraging clashes between Palestinian protesters and the IDF and Jewish settlers in the West Bank.

    Although the violence has thus far remained on a low flame, it is expected to intensify as the date of Obama’s visit approaches.

    The belief in the Palestinian Authority is that the violence on the ground will push Obama to exert pressure on the Israeli government to comply with the Palestinian conditions for resuming the peace process, namely a full cessation of settlement construction and the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails.

    There is also talk in Ramallah about organizing demonstrations during Obama’s visit to the West Bank, where he is scheduled to meet with President Mahmoud Abbas. The demonstrations will be held to protest against US “bias” in favor of Israel.

    The Palestinian Authority leadership is hoping that the anti-US protests will scare Obama and force him to exert even more pressure on Israel.

    The Palestinian Authority’s message to Obama: You must act quickly against Israel before things get out of hand.

    It now remains to be seen whether Obama is aware of this attempt to put pressure on him, or whether he will continue to turn a blind eye to the Palestinian Authority’s new-old tactic of initiating an escalation with the hope of extracting concessions from the US and Israel.

      The Palestinian Authority’s message to Obama: You must act quickly against Israel before things get out of hand.

      Once again, we see an accursed musloid, not-so-veiled threat of violence….
      Only pointing out and underlining the fact that ALL musloids of all stripes, are inherently criminals , in view of the fact that they hold their pedophile founder to be the supreme man to be emulated.
      A similar identical message was delivered in the past by the criminal thief and scam artist imam raouf … In his, ooooh, so soft spoken voice, he mentioned thatHE might be able to control some ‘elements’ in the Muslim world that might just get violent if things don’t go as they wish…

      It now remains to be seen whether Obama is aware of this attempt to put pressure on him, or whether he will continue to turn a blind eye to the Palestinian Authority’s new-old tactic of initiating an escalation with the hope of extracting concessions from the US and Israel.

      Ok.
      There are sooooo many things wrong with this statement that I don’t even know where to begin….
      The key operative word in my commentary now, would be: PRETENSE.
      We must PRETEND that husein zero, is actually the potus elected properly with all the credentials being kosher. We must PRETEND that we are not aware that this bastard (literally and figuratively) is a complete and total FRAUD.
      next, we must PRETEND that there actually IS such a thing as p*****n there has never been one, there is no such thing and god willing there will never be such an entity
      We all know that this invented people miraculously came into existence out of nowhere (kind of like husein it the Oval Office, now that I think of it), but yet, everybody must PRETEND that there is such a thing and we should cater to their aspirations, Yada Yada Yada…
      And as slack jawed imbecile that husein actually is (he cannot address children in elementary without the TelePrompTer), now we must PRETEND that he is naive (oh, you know, the intellectual, morally super being that he is, [spit!] might not even be aware of what the unwashed Arabs living (for now) in Judea and Samaria are planning to do….
      Oh no, the anointed one (spit) is not aware of any shenanigans .
      The last part of the sentence makes it almost self understood that concessions… Can only be demanded from Israel…you must not ask the invented people for anything as this might offend them, this might derail the peace process…..

      Reality check now folks.
      Do we all have “STUPID” tattooed on our forehead or what???

    2. Dean says:

      There is one cure for an intifada… and that is a counter intifada. A counter intifada involves the setting of real borders by Israel (regardless of what the USA, the UN or Europe demand), the use of real force when Arabs resort to violence and terrorism and dropping out of the UN for reasons that should by now be obvious to everyone.

    3. the phoenix says:

      @ Dean:
      dean, you are definitely a man after my own heart.
      you have just cut this ‘gordian knot’, and (with an economy of words), proposed the correct course of action!

    4. Sam Goldblatt says:

      Tomorrow night it’s possible one of two anti-Israel documentaries will win an Academy Award to the rousing cheers of an audience filled with Jewish notables. Perhaps 5 billion people will be watching at home. And last November the American people decided that the cheapskgate Mormon android quarter billionaire Mitt Romney was The Fraud, not Barack Hussein Obama. His popularity rating is over 60% now. You gotta know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. If some schmendrick or Bibi trys something stupid while the POTUS is there, Israel will suffer greatly. Underestimate BHO at your own peril. Rush Limbaugh conceded as much the other day. As the old Shin Bet chiefs say in THE GATEKEEPERS – Israel is on thin ice.

      The Bogeyman has spoken!

      Sam Goldblatt Said:

      Underestimate BHO at your own peril..[..]… – Israel is on thin ice.

      the problem is not with the bastard in the oval office, goldblatt! the problem is with a bunch of idiots, that have enabled this abomination to happen, and in spite of facts screaming at them from every conceivable angle, they (the idiots)still call him (it) the potus….
      you catching the drift? goldblatt?

      israel being on thin ice, as you said, is NOT because of this bastard decidng to come to israel.
      it is because it has allowed 45 years to pass, and the only thing it has to show for, is a generation that just HAPPENS to speak hebrew and also HAPPENS to be born ‘jewish’ but has no clue as to its roots, its history, its PRIDE!!!
      that, goldblatt, is the thinnest of ice.
      the solution is very simple.
      reread dean’s comment.
      it does not get any simpler than that…

    7. Dean says:

      Sam: Islam and Communism are popular too – go figure!

    8. Dean says:

      …and so is crack cocaine popular but that does not mean that you must partake, Sam, unless you are an idiot. Your thinking reminds me of the weak Jews who go along to get along – the same types who hold the highest positions in our Federations and Jewish institutions. Perhaps that is why support for Israel is waning. Your children are also weak minded, without backbones and disconnected from reality (sheltered by those who want to protect them by making them into sheep and ass kissers). They might as well snort that cocaine in great quantities because they will be good for nothing else except to sheepishly follow dictators and abusers. By the way, Sam, I think that you must be a plant to create some excitement and generate interest in this forum!

    9. Andrew says:

      Has the 3rd intifada already begun? It sounds like it, from half a world away.

      Why is Obama visiting now when it seems like he has already given up. No-one in Israel is going to welcome him. And none of the Pals are – unless I am missing something.

    10. Laura says:

      @ Sam Goldblatt:
      Those who bless Israel will be blessed. Those who curse Israel will be cursed. Do you think it a coincidence that bad things are happening to the free world at the same time the west has turned against the Jewish state? It is not Israel that’s on thin ice. It is the rest of the world.

    11. Honey Bee says:

      @ Sam Goldblatt:

      True that! Smerderick one of my favorite words. I guess I am praising you Goldblatt, against the “hang him high” sentiments.

    12. Laura says:

      @ Honey Bee:
      Then we don’t need you here any more than Goldblatt since you share his views.

    13. Honey Bee says:

      @ Laura:

      Darlin,sweetie,sugar pie what would yawl do wthout your little bee. Goldblatt only speak a hard truth.

    14. Laura says:

      His popularity rating is over 60% now

      What planet are you living on Goldblatt? His rating is below 50%.

    15. Laura says:

      Ditch the trolls.

    16. Honey Bee says:

      @ Laura:

      Trolls are from Norway, I don’t think OHB was born there,but then again Quin Sabe?

      @ Sam Goldblatt:
      Tomorrow night it’s possible one of two anti-Israel documentaries will win an Academy Award to the rousing cheers of an audience filled with Jewish notables.

      Which is probably why it won’t win. A lot of those Jewish notables are Zionist. Not by Yamit82‘s standard of Zionism; but zionist enough to probably vote against the movie.

      I saw parts of 5 Broken Cameras. It was disturbing, but artistically incoherent. It does not deserve to win on artistic merits, independent of its documentary merits.

      Perhaps 5 billion people will be watching at home.

      It will be bedtime on the other half of the planet. Most do not speak English, many do not have TV; and most do not care.

      This does not add or detract from the movie; but your statement is exaggerated.

      And last November the American people decided that the cheapskgate Mormon android quarter billionaire Mitt Romney was The Fraud, not Barack Hussein Obama. His popularity rating is over 60% now. You gotta know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.

      Barak Obama’s moves are limited.

      If some schmendrick or Bibi trys something stupid while the POTUS is there, Israel will suffer greatly.

      Hold on there! I have to be fair. If I can slam the ultrazionists for foul words, I can slam you. Schmendrick was not called for.

      You are a vulgarian no less that some of those on the other side. Notice, I said some. NOT ALL.

      Underestimate BHO at your own peril.

      I am not saying this is good or bad; but Bibi has defied Obama and gotten away with it. Congress favors Bibi. It is what it is.

      Rush Limbaugh conceded as much the other day.

      Limbaugh is not the highest authority.

      As the old Shin Bet chiefs say in THE GATEKEEPERS – Israel is on thin ice.

      My solution is to pay the Arabs to leave for South America.

      And, for the rest of you, you now see I called out a pro-Palestinian for errors and vulgarity.

      I try to be fair.

      Watch as I get slammed by both sides.

      The only good thing on this post is that it was hidden, which means I am not alone in being hidden.

      I was alluding to you, not calling you.

      To Sam Goldblatt:

      I do NOT agree with your postions or vulgarity but I am impressed.

      It takes quite a considerable amount of effort to generate more vitriol from this crew than I usually get.

      Thanks for the cover.

      Not only you’re an antisemite, but you have no sense of humor….
      Lighten up american,
      You’ll keep coming back with your ‘pay the Arabs’ and yes, of course I will retort in a phoenix way….
      By now I thought you’ve learnt the drill…
      Guess not.

      I am not an anti-semite. How can I lighten up when I am lied about?

      I caught the joke. I just responded coolly.

      american…
      what can i say.
      you exhibit such a blatantly obvious prim and proper goyishe mentality that it’s not even funny.
      you think that ‘shmendrick’ is a vulgar word. it is not. (you got it confused with a similar one that you must have been called often)
      so here you are, the prim and proper ca (christian american) who would NEVER utter a ‘vulgarity’ nor raise a voice in outrage…
      as i say this, i see images of all the highly polished marbled floors of palaces and mansions where people like YOU and your ilk, are carrying on a VERY POLITE CONVERSATION as to ‘what shall we do about the jewish problem’…. i see other images where urgent messages are brought into meeting rooms where POLITE CONVERSATION is being carried on by fdr (may he rot in hell!!!) and his advisors… and very politely, without using any vulgar words…. the ‘st louis’ ship was turned away!!!!

      to paraphrase ecclesiastes, there is a time to comment with humour and a time to go for the jugular.
      the reaction to your comments is visceral, for you represent everything that has wronged me and my people and has the AUDACITY under the disguise of politeness to try and continue to wrong us…
      no more american!

      and as far as the other shmuck, (btw, that’s the word you were thinking of earlier)i actually despise more than you!
      from you – it is self understood
      from a jewish kapo… there are no words to adequately describe…

    25. steven l says:

      The Pal continue, in spite of their empty claims, to use the THREE NOs because the international community [chronic resentment (to be polite) against the Jew]allows them to do so.
      The Chinese are using N-Korea and the Russian Iran to test Obama resolve; Palywood will not move Obama but his degree of Islamophilia might. If next door 100 thousands dead have not trigger an Obama reaction, the Pal will waste few more souls to the Virgins.
      The Pal and all other Arabs (as demonstrated by the Arab stormy winter) have still not evolve from the “animal” state to the human state.
      The Pal do not want to remember that their existence & survival is due to the West, not because they mean anything but because the West is fundamentally antisemitic. The Arabs have repeated ad nauseam that they do not care about the Pal. They are just an instrument they are using against the Jews to keep their masses in abject submission.
      The only people who can make thing happen one way or the other are the Israelis. Everybody knows that the Pal (Arabs) will not recognize IL no matter what the IL will concede. The West does not care because it not their skin at stake. Therefore it will be up to IL to decide What & When.

      Oh! I used to swear like a truck driver when necessary, I am ashamed to admit.

      But it is ineffective with winning hearts and minds.

      The Israelis want to know how to win support. Vulgarity will not do it; besides Ted frowns on it.

      Schmendrick (luckless fool) is an insult. I was right to call him out.

      you american, of all people, should KNOW that this is a failing strategy. (irak?…afghanistan?….)
      once again, you have conveniently adressed the superficiality instead of the REAL issue…
      i know you understood my comment VERY WELL but chose to hide behind a ridiculous technicality…and not touch the HEART of the comment…

      Curious American wants to feel crucified, like Jesus. He fantasizes about it at nights, maybe. And i guess he emotionally needs Jews to be doing it to him.

      He can’t go all the way to physical (nails hurt), so he has to make do with harsh talk from Jews. And he provokes such harsh talk against him in any way he can.

      Delusions of Christian masochist grandeur.
