Jim W. Dean – Almost in the busy day of the UN Security Council dueling and the first Russian air strikes against ISIL, was the Palestinians having an historic day having their flag raised at the UN.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – Let the people of Gaza open their port

Balfour gave a “promise” for a Jewish Home Land, a land he had no right to promise, then Arafat legitimize the promise and gave away the land he never had a right to give away.
Palestine is NOT a Farm Of The Saudi King and Arab States فلسطين ليست مزرعة لملك السعوية والجامعة العربية Palestine is not a private farm of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, of the Emir of Qatar, of the Arab League or the self-appointed Palestinian “president” Mahmoud Abbas, whose presidential term expired in 2009, since when […]
Short answer – both are grovellers (definition in a moment). The president of the United States of America grovels to the Zionist lobby and its neo-con and Christian fundamentalist allies. The Palestinian “president” grovels to Obama as well as Israel’s leaders more often than not. Obama and Abbas are, one could say, grovelling twins, but if there was the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for grovelling, it would have to be awarded to Obama. (If when he leaves office Israel is still able to impose its will on the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, I think he should hand back the Nobel Peace Prize he was awarded).

The news coming out of Cairo in the last 48 hours is very surprising to every one. Most of all to Bibi Netanyahu who gave Mahmoud Abbas a choice; either peace with Israel or reconciliation with Hamas and who ordered his security forces to put more squeeze on Gaza. Bibi forgetting that Mahmoud Abbas has been knocking on the doors of Israel on his hands and knees begging for peace with or without Hamas for over 20 years and there was one answer, Jewish Occupation and expansion of Jewish Settlements colonies, more important than peace with the Palestinians.
Bypass Israel and its twisted backers and deal direct with those responsible, the United Nations. By Stuart Littlewood / STAFF WRITER See this embarrassment as your big chance – a God-sent opportunity to sweep away the shameful Palestinian Authority. Then make a fresh start. Bypass Israel and its twisted backers and deal direct with those […]
– The headline does not comprise the framework for peace reported by the national AP and CNN in describing the Israeli stance for successful ‘direct talks for peace’ with Palestinian negotiators, but it should … – Instead, we are treated to this: Mr. Netanyahu said a future Palestinian state would have to be demilitarised, recognise Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people […]
