Across the Jewish world there are a flurry of articles and webinars presented to any and all willing to hear the truth and to understand what is really going on in Jerusalem and across the Nation state of Israel. The riots, attacks, destruction and threats of annihilation are being fed by President Mahomud Abbas, the dictator of the Palestinian Arab communities within the Arab communities of Judea and Samaria and the false claim to also be President of a non-existent city of East Jerusalem.
In once again cancelling elections in which he is likely to lose, and in the ongoing battle with his rivals, notably Hamas, he is staging another war with the Jews, seeking global sympathy by blaming Israel for both his postponed elections, for incitement on the Temple Mount, for trying to regulate the Arab movement (ignoring mass riots that are taking place in Jerusalem,) and of course he intended to disrupt and ruin Yom Yerushalayim, which he succeeded in doing.
So even after a random drive-by shooting killed one young Jew and seriously injured a second, wounding also a third, Abbas is unrelenting. He is the inheritor of Arafat‘S tyranny, the inheritor of the Nazi supporting Muhammad Amin al-Husayni; he is a Holocaust denier and the leader of incitement and violence affecting Israel. There is no equivalence argument to be made. Nor is the claim that this incitement is justified in stopping some ethnic cleansing of Arabs from homes they occupy in Shimon Hatzadikhis, (a neighborhood known in Arabic as Sheikh Jarrah,) populated by Arabs. The legal system in Israel is robust and the decision of its independent court is how property disputes are resolved, and whether the claim is by Arabs or Jews, they are heard in this court. How dare the world intervene and demand Israel abrogate its responsibility to hear the claimant’s case, the defendant’s case and then rule on the matter? This case has dragged on for 12 years, so why now is it worthy of a global anti-Israel campaign? It is NOT! It is the trademark action of the Islamist, anti-Western, antisemitic, antiZionist tyranny of the Palestinian Authority and its supporters—blame the Jews! Create chaos! Kill and be rewarded! Choose war not peace!

How can anyone explain the total lack of context presented in the local and national media? How does one explain the Jewish organizations that stand with the Pro-Palestinian mob and denounce Israel for actions of self-defense? How do we see peace arriving with Biden renewing funding without preconditions for the PA which teaches hatred in all of its texts from JK-12 and does not recognize Israel? How do we explain to our Canadian government that the Nabka demonstration to be held in Toronto and across the globe on May 15th is an Iranian backed campaign to denigrate Israel with one goal, ONLY ONE goal—to destroy Israel?
How does one explain the hatefest rally that took place in Toronto on May 11th, breaking key directives of the COVID health guidelines issued by Ontario and the City of Toronto?
How do we stop the next rally scheduled for May 15th in Toronto that will be both a health risk for the community, a Jew hatred campaign, a smearing of Israel, a denunciation of Zionism and a blight on a city that celebrates its diversity?
This message from the European Coalition for Israel is a positive note in an otherwise bleak media world;
Brussels, May 11th, 2021 – Both the United States and the European Union have condemned the firing of rockets from Gaza as tension between Israel and the Islamic terrorist groups in Gaza escalates to the most critical level since 2014. In a statement on Monday, EU Ambassador to Israel Emanuele Giaufret said “the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel is totally unacceptable and needs to stop.” In a separate statement, the US Foreign Secretary Antony Blinken also demanded that “rocket attacks on Israel must stop immediately.” Still, on Tuesday morning there was no ceasefire in sight, as the terrorist group Hamas threated further escalation. According to media reports, the United Nations, Egypt and Qatar have contacted Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh demanding he prevent further violence.
Former Ambassador Yoram Ettinger pointed out today in a webinar hosted by EMET, that Israel must uproot all the terrorists and halt the terrorism, which it is being challenged to do against the renewal of funding by the US of both the PA and UNRWA which teach incitement, the egging on by Turkey’s bigoted President Erodgan, funding by the rogue terror regime of Iran, and ongoing ignorance of the true agenda of the Palestinian Authority and its allies, and how the situation threatens the security of the entire Middle East.
