Spew of Feces: Mahmoud Abbas at the General Assembly

Spew of Feces: Mahmoud Abbas at the General Assembly The President of the Falestinian Authority, during an illegal extension of his term, desecrated the City of New York with his evil presence and spewed feces at the General Assembly of the United Nations.

    As with Prime Minister Netanyahu's address, I have highlighted the most important parts and inserted superscripts linked to my comments which follow the screed. Click the superscripts to read my comments and press your Backspace key to return to your place in the screed. 

    Update: publication of this post was delayed by interruption of my internet connection. After the technical difficulty was fixed, I discovered that Abbas has declared that he will not negotiate until "settlement activity" is ended. It becomes ever more obvious that Islam is interested in conquest, not in peace.

In a Reuters story on Yahoo News, Abbas is quoted as follows:

"We will not accept (negotiations) until legitimacy is the foundation and they cease settlement completely,"

H.E. Mr. Mahmoud Abbas  United Nations General Assembly Sixty-sixth Session

Mr. President of the General Assembly of the United Nations,
Mr. Secretary-General of the United Nations,
Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    At the outset, I extend my congratulations to H.E. Mr. Nassir Abdulaziz AI-Nasser on his
assumption of the Presidency of the Assembly for this session, and wish him all success.

    I extend today my sincere congratulations, on behalf of the Palestine Liberation
Organization and the Palestinian people, to the government and people of South Sudan for its
deserved admission as a full member of the United Nations, wishing them progress and
prosperity.

    I also congratulate the Secretary-General, H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, on his election for a
new term at the helm of the United Nations. This renewal of confidence reflects the world's
appreciation for his efforts, which have strengthened the role of the United Nations.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    The Question Palestine is intricately linked with the United Nations via the resolutions
adopted by its various organs and agencies and via the essential and lauded role of the United
Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East - UNRWA - which
embodies the international responsibility1 towards the plight of Palestine refugees2, who are the
victims of Al-Nakba 3(Catastrophe) that occurred in 1948. We aspire for and seek a greater and
more effective role for the United Nations in working to achieve a just and comprehensive peace4
in our region that ensures the inalienable, legitimate national rights5 of the Palestinian people6 as
defined by the resolutions of international legitimacy of the United Nations.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    A year ago, at this same time, distinguished leaders in this hall addressed the stalled
peace efforts in our region. Everyone had high hopes for a new round of final status negotiations,
which had begun in early September in Washington under the direct auspices of President
Barack Obama and with participation of the Quartet, and with Egyptian and Jordanian
participation, to reach a peace agreement within one year. We entered those negotiations with
open hearts and attentive ears and sincere intentions, and we were ready with our documents,
papers and proposals. But the negotiations broke down7 just weeks after their launch.

    After this, we did not give up and did not cease our efforts for initiatives and contacts.
Over the past year we did not leave a door to be knocked or channel to be tested or path to be
taken and we did not ignore any formal or informal party of influence and stature to be
addressed. We positively considered the various ideas and proposals and initiatives presented
from many countries and parties. But all of these sincere efforts and endeavors undertaken by
international parties were repeatedly wrecked by the positions of the Israeli government,8 which
quickly dashed the hopes raised by the launch of negotiations last September.

    The core issue here is that the Israeli government refuses to commit to terms of reference
for the negotiations that are based on international law and United Nations resolutions, and that it
frantically continues to intensify building of settlements on the territory of the State of Palestine.
Settlement activities embody the core of the policy of colonial military occupation9 of the
land of the Palestinian people and all of the brutality of aggression10 and racial discrimination
against our people that this policy entails. This policy, which constitutes a breach of
international humanitarian law and United Nations resolutions, is the primary cause for the
failure of the peace process, the collapse of dozens of opportunities, and the burial of the great
hopes that arose from the signing of the Declaration of Principles in 1993 between the Palestine
Liberation Organization and Israel to achieve a just peace that would begin a new era for our
region.

    The reports of United Nations missions as well as by several Israeli institutions and civil
societies convey a horrific picture about the size of the settlement campaign, which the Israeli
government does not hesitate to boast about and which it continues to execute through the
systematic confiscation of the Palestinian lands11 and the construction of thousands of new
settlement units in various areas of the West Bank, particularly in East Jerusalem12, and
accelerated construction of the annexation Wall13 that is eating up large tracts of our land, dividing
it into separate and isolated islands and cantons, destroying family life and communities and the
livelihoods of tens of thousands of families. The occupying Power also continues to refuse
permits for our people to build in Occupied East Jerusalem, at the same time that it intensifies its
decades-long campaign of demolition and confiscation of homes, displacing Palestinian owners
and residents under a multi-pronged policy of ethnic cleansing14 aimed at pushing them away from
their ancestral homeland. In addition, orders have been issued to deport elected representatives
from the city of Jerusalem. The occupying Power also continues to undertake excavations that
threaten our holy places15, and its military checkpoints prevent our citizens from getting access to
their mosques and churches, and it continues to besiege the Holy City with a ring of settlements
imposed to separate the Holy City from the rest of the Palestinian cities16.

    The occupation is racing against time to redraw the borders on our land according to what
it wants and to impose a fait accompli on the ground that changes the realities and that is
undermining the realistic potential for the existence of the State of Palestine.17

    At the same time, the occupying Power continues to impose its blockade on the Gaza
Strip and to target Palestinian civilians by assassinations, air strikes and artillery shelling,
persisting with its war of aggression of three years ago on Gaza, which resulted in massive
destruction of homes, schools, hospitals, and mosques, and the thousands of martyrs18 and
wounded.


    The occupying Power also continues its incursions in areas of the Palestinian National
Authority through raids, arrests and killings at the checkpoints.19 In recent years, the criminal
actions of armed settler militias, who enjoy the special protection of the occupation army, has
intensified with the perpetration of frequent attacks against our people, targeting their homes,
schools, universities, mosques, fields, crops and trees. Despite our repeated warnings, the
occupying Power has not acted to curb these attacks and we hold them fully responsible for the
crimes of the settlers.

    These are just a few examples of the policy of the Israeli colonial settlement occupation20,
and this policy is responsible for the continued failure of the successive international attempts to
salvage the peace process.

    This policy will destroy the chances of achieving a two-State solution21 upon which there is
an international consensus, and here I caution aloud: This settlement policy threatens to also
undermine the structure of the Palestinian National Authority and even end its existence.

    In addition, we now face the imposition new conditions not previously raised, conditions
that will transform the raging conflict in our inflamed region into a religious conflict22 and a threat
to the future of a million and a half Christian and Muslim Palestinians, citizens of Israel, a matter
which we reject and which is impossible for us to accept being dragged into.

    All of these actions taken by Israel in our country23 are unilateral actions and are not based
on any earlier agreements. Indeed, what we witness is a selective application of the agreements
aimed at perpetuating the occupation. Israel reoccupied the cities of the West Bank by a
unilateral action, and reestablished the civil and military occupation by a unilateral action, and it
is the one that detennines whether or not a Palestinian citizen has the right to reside in any part
of the Palestinian Territory. And it is confiscating our land and our water and obstructing our
movement as well as the movement of goods. And it is the one obstructing our whole destiny.
All of this is unilateral.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    In 1974, our deceased leader Yasser Arafat came to this hall and assured the Members of
the General Assembly of our affinnative pursuit for peace24, urging the United Nations to realize
the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people25, stating: "Do not let the olive branch fall
from my hand".

    In 1988, President Arafat again addressed the General Assembly, which convened in
Geneva to hear him, where he submitted the Palestinian peace program adopted by the Palestine
National Council at its session held that year in Algeria.

    When we adopted this program, we were taking a painful and very difficult step for all of
us, especially those, including myself, who were forced to leave their homes and their towns and
villages, carrying only some of our belongings and our grief and our memories and the keys of
our homes to the camps of exile and the Diaspora in the 1948 AI-Nakba26, one of the worst
operations of uprooting, destruction and removal of a vibrant and cohesive society that had been
contributing in a pioneering and leading way m the cultural, educational and economic
renaissance of the Arab Middle East.

    Yet, because we believe in peace27 and because of our conviction in international
legitimacy, and because we had the courage to make difficult decisions for our people, and in the
absence of absolute justice, we decided to adopt the path of relative justice - justice that is
possible and could correct part of the grave historical injustice committed against our people.
Thus, we agreed to establish the State of Palestine on only 22% of the territory of historical
Palestine - on all the Palestinian Territory occupied by Israel in 1967.28

    We, by taking that historic step, which was welcomed by the States of the world, made a
major concession in order to achieve a historic compromise that would allow peace to be made in
the land of peace.29

    In the years that followed - from the Madrid Conference and the Washington negotiations
leading to the Oslo agreement, which was signed 18 years ago in the garden of the White House
and was linked with the letters of mutual recognition between the PLO and Israel, we persevered
and dealt positively and responsibly with all efforts aimed at the achievement of a lasting peace
agreement. Yet, as we said earlier, every initiative and every conference and every new round of
negotiations and every movement was shattered on the rock of the Israeli settlement expansion
project.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I confirm, on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization, the sole legitimate
representative of the Palestinian people, which will remain so until the end of the conflict in all
its aspects and until the resolution of all final status issues, the following:

    I. The goal of the Palestinian people is the realization of their inalienable national rights in their
independent State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital, on all the land of the West
Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, which Israel occupied in the June 1967 war,
in conformity with the resolutions of international legitimacy and with the achievement of a just
and agreed upon solution to the Palestine refugee issue in accordance with resolution 194, as
stipulated in the Arab Peace Initiative which presented the consensus Arab vision to resolve the
core the Arab-Israeli conflict and to achieve a just and comprehensive peace. To this we adhere
and this is what we are working to achieve. Achieving this desired peace also requires the
release of political prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons without delay.

2. The PLO and the Palestinian people adhere to the renouncement of violence30 and rejection and
condemning of terrorism31 in all its forms, especially State terrorism, and adhere to all agreements
signed between the Palestine Liberation Organization and Israel.

3. We adhere to the option of negotiating a lasting solution to the conflict in accordance with
resolutions of international legitimacy. Here, I declare that the Palestine Liberation Organization
is ready to return immediately to the negotiating table on the basis of the adopted terms of
reference based on international legitimacy and a complete cessation of settlement activities.32

4. Our people will continue their popular peaceful resistance to the Israeli occupation33 and its
settlement and apartheid policies34 and its construction of the racist annexation Wall35, and they
receive support for their resistance, which is consistent with international humanitarian law and
international conventions and has the support of peace activists from Israel and around the world,
reflecting an impressive, inspiring and courageous example of the strength of this defenseless
people, armed only with their dreams, courage, hope and slogans in the face of bullets, tanks,
tear gas and bulldozers.

5. When we bring our plight and our case to this international podium, it is a confirmation of our
reliance on the political and diplomatic option and is a confirmation that we do not undertake
unilateral steps36. Our efforts are not aimed at isolating Israel or de-legitimizing it; rather we want
to gain legitimacy37 for the cause of the people of Palestine. We only aim to de-legitimize the
settlement activities, the occupation and apartheid and the logic of ruthless force, and we believe
that all the countries of the world stand with us in this regard.

    I am here to say on behalf of the Palestinian people and the Palestine Liberation
Organization: We extend our hands to the Israeli government and the Israeli people for peacemaking.
I say to them: Let us urgently build together a future for our children where they can
enjoy freedom38, security and prosperity. Let us build the bridges of dialogue instead of
checkpoints and walls of separation, and build cooperative relations based on parity and equity
between two neighboring States - Palestine and Israel - instead of policies of occupation,
settlement, war and eliminating the other39.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Despite the unquestionable right of our people to self-determination and to the
independence of our State as stipulated in international resolutions, we have accepted in the past
few years to engage in what appeared to be a test of our worthiness, entitlement and eligibility.
During the last two years our national authority has implemented a program to build our State
institutions. Despite the extraordinary situation and the Israeli obstacles imposed, a serious
extensive project was launched that has included the implementation of plans to enhance and
advance the judiciary and the apparatus for maintenance of order and security, to develop the
administrative, financial, and oversight systems, to upgrade the performance of institutions, and
to enhance self-reliance to reduce the need for foreign aid. With the thankful support of Arab
countries and donors from friendly countries, a number of large infrastructure projects have been
implemented, focused on various aspects of service, with special attention to rural and
marginalized areas.

    In the midst of this massive national project, we have been strengthening what we
seeking to be the features of our State: from the preservation of security for the citizen and public
order; to the promotion of judicial authority and rule of law; to strengthening the role of women
via legislation, laws and participation; to ensuring the protection of public freedoms and
strengthening the role of civil society institutions; to institutionalizing rules and regulations for
ensuring accountability and transparency in the work of our Ministries and departments; to
entrenching the pillars of democracy as the basis for the Palestinian political life.

    When division struck the unity of our homeland, people and institutions, we were
determined to adopt dialogue for restoration of our unity. We succeeded months ago in
achieving national reconciliation and we hope that its implementation will be accelerated in the
coming weeks. The core pillar of this reconciliation was to turn to the people through legislative
and presidential elections within a year, because the State we want will be a State characterized
by the rule of law, democratic exercise and protection of the freedoms and equality of all citizens
without any discrimination and the transfer of power through the ballot box.

    The reports issued recently by the United Nations, the World Bank, the Ad Hoc Liaison
Committee (AHLC) and the International Monetary Fund confirm and laud what has been
accomplished, considering it a remarkable and unprecedented model. The consensus conclusion
by the AHLC a few days ago here described what has been accomplished as a "remarkable
international success story" and confirmed the readiness of the Palestinian people and their
institutions for the immediate independence of the State of Palestine.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    It is no longer possible to redress the issue of the blockage of the horizon of the peace
talks with the same means and methods that have been repeatedly tried and proven unsuccessful
over the past years. The crisis is far too deep to be neglected, and what is more dangerous are
attempts to simply circumvent it or postpone its explosion.40

    It is neither possible, nor practical, nor acceptable to return to conducting business as
usual, as if everything is fine. It is futile to go into negotiations without clear parameters41 and in
the absence of credibility42 and a specific timetable. Negotiations will be meaningless as long as
the occupation army on the ground continues to entrench its occupation43, instead of rolling it
back, and continues to change the demography of our country44 in order to create a new basis on
which to alter the borders.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    It is a moment of truth and my people are waiting to hear the answer of the world. Will it
allow Israel to continue its occupation, the only occupation in the world? Will it allow Israel to
remain a State above the law and accountability? Will it allow Israel to continue rejecting the
resolutions of the Security Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations and the
International Court of Justice and the positions of the overwhelming majority of countries in the
world?

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I come before you today from the Holy Land, the land of Palestine, the land of divine
messages, ascension of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the birthplace of Jesus
Christ (peace be upon him), to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people in the homeland and in
the Diaspora, to say, after 63 years of suffering of an ongoing Nakba: Enough. It is time for the
Palestinian people to gain their freedom and independence.

    The time has come to end the suffering and the plight of millions of Palestine refugees in
the homeland and the Diaspora, to end their displacement and to realize their rights, some of
them forced to take refuge more than once in different places of the world.

    At a time when the Arab peoples affirm their quest for democracy45 - the Arab Spring - the
time is now for the Palestinian Spring, the time for independence.

    The time has come for our men, women and children to live normal lives46, for them to be
able to sleep without waiting for the worst that the next day will bring; for mothers to be assured
that their children will return home without fear of suffering killing, arrest or humiliation47; for
students to be able to go to their schools and universities without checkpoints obstructing them.
The time has come for sick people to be able to reach hospitals normally48, and for our farmers to
be able to take care of their good land without fear of the occupation seizing the land and its
water, which the wall prevents access to, or fear of the settlers, for whom settlements are being
built on our land and who are uprooting and burning the olive trees that have existed for
hundreds of years. The time has come for the thousands of prisoners49 to be released from the
prisons to return to their families and their children to become a part of building their homeland,
for the freedom of which they have sacrificed.

My people desire to exercise their right to enjoy a normal life like the rest of humanity.
They believe what the great poet Mahmoud Darwish said: Standing here, staying here,
permanent here, eternal here, and we have one goal, one, one: to be.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    We profoundly appreciate and value the positions of all States that have supported our
struggle and our rights and recognized the State of Palestine following the Declaration of
Independence in 1988, as well as the countries that have recently recognized the State of
Palestine and those that have upgraded the level of Palestine's representation in their capitals. I
also salute the Secretary-General, who said a few days ago that the Palestinian State should have
been established years ago.

    Be assured that this support for our people is more valuable to them than you can
imagine, for it makes them feel that someone is listening to their narrative50and that their tragedy
and the horrors of Al-Nakba and the occupation, from which they have so suffered, are not being
ignored. And, it reinforces their hope that stems from the belief that justice is possible in this in
this world. The loss of hope is the most ferocious enemy of peace and despair is the strongest
ally of extremism.

    I say: The time has come for my courageous and proud people, after decades of
displacement and colonial occupation and ceaseless suffering, to live like other peoples of the
earth, free in a sovereign and independent homeland.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I would like to inform you that, before delivering this statement, I, in my capacity as
President of the State of Palestine and Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, submitted to H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United
Nations, an application for the admission of Palestine on the basis of the 4 June 1967 borders,
with AI-Quds AI-Sharif as its capital, as a full member of the United Nations.

    I call upon Mr. Secretary-General to expedite transmittal of our request to the Security
Council, and I call upon the distinguished members of the Security Council to vote in favor of
our full membership. I also appeal to the States that have not yet recognized the State of
Palestine to do so.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    The support of the countries of the world for our endeavor is a victory for truth, freedom,
justice, law and international legitimacy, and it provides tremendous support for the peace option
and enhances the chances of success of the negotiations.

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Your support for the establishment of the State of Palestine and for its admission to the
United Nations as a full member is the greatest contribution to peacemaking in the Holy Land.
I thank you.

 


  1. Responsibility for the Falestinians lies entirely with the membership of the Arab League, who staged a  series of genocidal attack on Israel, beginning in modern times, in 1948. Any broader responsibility is limited to Ummah al-Islamiyya, to pay Zakat to their distressed brethren.  Had the Arabs lived up to their responsibility, there would be no refugee problem for the Falestinians.
  2. The geographic region called Palestine was, prior to the Destruction of the Second Temple, known as Israel. The Romans renamed the occupied territory after the Philistines as an insult to the Jews whom they had thrown out of their homeland. The Jewish diaspora are the real Palestinian refugees.
  3. In 632, four years after Moe departed for his richly deserved eternal damnation,{fire be upon him) caliph Umar completed the conquest of the Roman Province of Syria, the indigenous population of which was Christian & Jewish, neither Arab nor Muslim.

         In World War 1, the Ottoman Empire fought on the losing side, losing the desert to Great Britain. Following the Balfour Doctrine, the League of Nations gave Great Britain a mandate to restore the Jews to their ancient homeland which had been stolen from them. Great Britain reneged on the deal, forcing Israel to rise up against the occupying force and restored her sovereignty in 1948. The Arabs rejected the partition plan and Falestinian statehood, preferring  to launch a genocidal attack. To learn more about the relevant  history of the Levant, follow the links in the left sidebar of http://www.palestinefacts.org/ .

  4. Just, comprehensive and lasting peace is a function of your apostasy or death. If you abandon Islam or go to Hell, there will be peace in the region.  Until you follow one of those courses of action, there can be no peace.  If you wanted peace, you would have it. Instead, you want conquest, because it is the commandment of the demon to whom you are enslaved. You hope that we do not know about the Qur'an, but a few of us know, and we are sharing our knowledge with others. Comprehension of the true nature of Islam is propagating at an accelerating pace.

         We know about Noble Qur'an 2:216, which ordains jihad for you. We know about 2:190 which commands you to drive out those who drove you out; a command to reconquer lost territory, which motivates your reconquest of Israel. We know about 8:57, which commands you to deal harshly with those you defeat so as to terrorize prospective victims behind them.  We know about 8:60, which commands you to build the strongest possible army with which to terrify your intended victims.  We know about 8:67, which sets "great slaughter" as the price of admission to Allah's celestial bordello.

         We know about how Allah terrified Jews so that you killed them, enslaved their widows & orphans and seized their real and personal property.  We know how Moe committed genocide, slaughtering 800 Jews who had surrendered; how he inspected their sons for pubic hair and slew those who had developed it.  And we know about Moe instructing his companions to invade Syria first because "Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people." We also read 7:167 so we know that Allah will "certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment."  We even know that the gates of Paradise will not swing open for you until you hunt down and kill the last Jew.

         Nay more! We have read Islamic law, so we know that jihad is "war against non-Muslims".  We know that it must be performed in every year, and that, if it is abandoned in a year without good cause, that all who knew of the obligation are in sin. We know that "The caliph makes war against Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians".

         We are not so stupid, ignorant and gullible as you hope.  We know that Allah promised you victory. We know that Allah promised that you would take over the land.  We also know by 13:41, that your conquest is irreversible.  That is how we know that Allah is an impotent idol: The Jews got part of their land back and you tried to exterminate them and failed several times.  I know that you will never tolerate the existence of Israel because she testifies to the fact that you worship an impotent idol, and I am telling everyone who will read this blog post.

  5. According to sacred and secular history, Judea & Israel were ancient kingdoms in the region now referred to as Palestine. We know that Jerusalem was the capitol, where King Solomon erected the Temple, the Assyrians destroyed it, Herod rebuilt it and the Romans destroyed it again.  When did you ever have a nation of Palestine? Who were its rulers? What was its unit of currency? What was its capitol city? How and when did it cease to exist as a sovereign nation?
  6. One terrorist's admission to a newspaper spilled the beans.  Falestinians are not a distinct people with a national history. No people, no nationality, no historical basis for a nation of their own on Israel's territory. Your lies are exposed and the game is up; sit down and shut up!

    Way back on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here's what he said:

    The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.

    For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

  7. Abbas demanded a construction freeze as a precondition for negotiations. Netanyahu stupidly imposed the freeze for ten months. Abbas delayed talks until the last two weeks of the freeze, then he walked away.  Muslims only negotiate from a position of strength. When too weak to fight, they only grant a ten year truce during which they rearm and regroup for their next attack. 
  8. There were no negotiations because you refuse to negotiate; you demand surrender as a precondition for peace talks. Go to Hell.
  9. Its Israel, stupid. It ain't Palestine, it is Israel, the Jewish homeland. Muslims are the interlopers & illegal occupiers, since Umar's conquest in 638. 
  10. The projection continues; Muslims accuse their victims of their own offenses.  You killed a student and wounded a school bus driver with an expensive anti-tank rocket yet you accuse Israel of brutal aggression. Muslims were the aggressors in a series of four wars. Its time for the world to get a clue.
  11. It ain't your land; you stole it in 638.  You stole it again in 1948. Israel recovered it when you attacked again in 1967. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Quit kvetching, losers.
  12. Jerusalem is Israel's capitol.  King Hussein illegally seized half of it and excluded Jews from it in 1948, in violation of international law and his oath. You have no right or claim in Jerusalem. Drop the fantasy. Islam's so called claim on Jerusalem is founded in fabulism, a mirage
  13. There would be no wall if you were not continually attempting to murder Jews.  The wall is necessary to slow down and deter genocidal attackers motivated by the damnable doctrine of Islam.  Everything you bitterly bitch about is a consequence of your genocidal aggression.
  14. AssWhole: you rival Barack Hussein Obama in arrogance & al-Taqiyya! You demand that the Falestinian state be Judenrein; that all Jews be expelled from Judea & Samaria. You enforce a law prescribing the death penalty for selling land to Jews.  May Satan take you soon in your hypocrisy!
  15. There are no Jewish excavations near Mecca. The excavations near the Temple Mount do not threaten anything except your malignant narrative. Your removal and dumping of rubble containing Jewish artifacts from the Temple Mount stands out as a real threat to archeology. 
  16. Its Israel, stupid!  Jerusalem was the capitol, ruled over by David and Solomon, who were Jews, not Muslims. Jesus Christ worshiped in the Temple at Jerusalem; he, too is a Jew.  Jerusalem was never the capitol of any Arab or Muslim nation.  It was neglected by the Ottoman Empire, falling into decay during their occupation. 
  17. Any fool with eyes can see that there is not sufficient land there for one state; Israel is far too small for long term survival. There is not enough real estate there for two nations. 
  18. Yasser Arafat was fond of chanting "A million martyrs marching to Jerusalem". You worship martyrs, naming schools and public places after those who die in the act of murdering Jews.  Martyrs are a great thing, they gain instant admission to Alllah's celestial bordello and take 70 close relatives with them. Quit bitching about making martyrs.
  19. If you would implement and enforce your obligations under the Oslo Accords, there would be no need for Israeli incursions. You will not enforce them because murder is your way of life.
  20. 'Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans. Islam, not Israel invaded, conquered and occupied the Levant. It happened in 632. It is time to shut off the projector.
  21. Two states are not a solution. Statehood will not diminish your genocidal aggression, if anything, it would exacerbate your aggression.  There is absolutely no excuse for giving you a staging area for further attacks. If Israel moves for peace, she will usher you into Hell. Until she does, she will have no peace.
  22. Allah said: "Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. ". Moe said: "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah."  Israel's demand for recognition as the Jewish state turns the war into a religious conflict. Yeah, right. 
  23. It ain't your country, it is Israel! You had a chance for a country in 1948; you rejected that chance, preferring  to drive the Jews into the sea. Your genocidal attack was a failure, proving to all who will observe the truth that Allah is an impotent idol.
  24. You had a fine way of pursuing peace in 1948, 1967 & 1973. Why did you repeatedly fail to capture it? You do not want peace, you want genocidal conquest. Arafat is lonely in Hell, be swift to join him.
  25. You ain't a people, you ain't a nation and you have no historical, legal or moral right to Israel's land nor to a nation.  You could have had a nation, but you did not want one.
  26. Egyptian radio broadcast orders to evacuate; clearing the way for their army to push the Jews into the sea. You left to clear a path for genocide. You have no right to return.  Losing aggressors do not write the rules.
  27.  If you are a Muslim, you believe in Allah, not in peace.  Allah said that he purchased your lives so that you fight in his cause, killing others and being killed. His cause is to make Islam dominant; global conquest. "The Good News that Muslims will conquer the Known World, and ultimately the Entire World". Kiss my big, smelly, deformed, ulcerated foot.
  28. Israel recovered that land, stolen from her in 638 & 1948, only because you attacked her again with genocidal intent and lost. You bitch bitterly about the consequences of your own genocidal aggression. Go to Hell.
  29. What historic step did you take?  Did you make a good faith effort to stop terror attacks?  Did you end the inculcation of hatred in your schools, public television and Mosques?  Did you end incitement to violence against Israel?  Did you meet any of your obligations under the Oslo Accords?  Go to Hell.
  30. In a pig's anus you do! If you renounce violence, you must abjure & denounce Allah's damnable words including, but not limited to 2:216, 8:39, 8:60, 8:65, 9:29 & 9:123. By renouncing those ayat, you would become apostates, subject to execution. I disrespectfully direct doubters & dissenters to Reliance of the Traveller O8.1 & O8.7 [on the next page of the pdf.].
  31. In a pig's anus you do! If you renounce terrorism, you must abjure & denounce Allah's damnable words including, but not limited to 3:151, 8:12, 8:57, 8:60, 33:26, 33:27, 59:2 & 59:13, subjecting yourselves, under the Islamic law cited above, to execution as apostates. 
  32. Building apartments for Jews in Jerusalem is not settlement activity. Jerusalem is their capitol city. It belongs to Israel, not to you.
  33. Throwing rocks is not peaceful resistance. Launching mortar shells is not peaceful resistance. Launching rockets is not peaceful resistance. Blowing up buses is not peaceful resistance. Slaughtering families as they sleep is not peaceful resistance. You are occupying Israel; end the occupation immediately.  Go to Hell!
  34. You demand that your state be Judenrein and accuse Israel of apartheid. Go to Hell, hypocrite!
  35. You demand the exclusion of Jews from Jerusalem and call Israel racist. Go to Hell, hypocrite!
  36. Usurpation of Israel's sovereign territory and declaration of a state without due process; in the absence of a functional government ain't unilateral action. Yeah, right.
  37. Legitimacy? Either you have it or you don't.  Israel has it, you don't.  Your cause is illegitimate and can not be legitimatized. 
  38. Your children can not enjoy freedom while enslaved to Allah. First, they must be emancipated from Allah, then from your satrapy.
  39. Allah's Apostle said that the gates of the celestial bordello will not swing open for you until you kill the last Jew.  The genocidal statement is recorded in several ahadith including Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177 and Sahih Muslim 41.6985
  40. Your intransigence in demanding surrender prior to peace talks is building pressure for your eradication.   Justice will only be served by the explosion.
  41.  Recognition of Israel as the Jewish state, genuine denunciation of violence, complete & permanent disarmament & demilitarization and Israel's unquestioned right and duty to usher you into Hell at the first violation of those clear parameters; sounds like a plan.
  42. You have no credibility and can obtain none because you never implemented the Oslo Accords. Until you quit inculcating hatred and inciting violence, you have no credibility.
  43. Yes, it certainly is unreasonable to expect Israel to negotiate while you occupy her sovereign territory. Go home!
  44. Israel is not your country, and you are breeding like rats in it, changing the demography.
  45. "One man, one vote, one time." "It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. "[33:36] The quest is for domination, not democracy; its about who sits on the throne.
  46. Then let them denounce Islam, join the human race and abandon genocidal conquest. You can quit making war any day of the week, any week of the year but you will not because you are slaves of Allah. But I know something you wish I did not know: "And the life of this world is nothing but play and amusement. But far better is the house in the Hereafter for those who are Al­Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). Will you not then understand?" [6:32]  Muslims do not want normal lives, they seek war and martyrdom as a guarantee of admission to the celestial bordello.
  47. They send their brats off to murder Jews, telling them not to shame their mothers by returning alive. Do you think we do not see the pictures of little boys carrying rifles and wearing bomb vests?  Do you think we do not read about teenagers being caught carrying knives and bombs into Israel or wearing bomb vests to the border? 
  48. If you built hospitals instead of arsenals, buying medicine instead of explosives, that would not be a problem.
  49. Israel should execute one of those prisoners every day until Shalit is freed alive and unharmed. Of course, they will go directly to the celestial bordello, won't they. Their relatives will celebrate their wedding to 72 houris.
  50. We have been listening for 62 years and we know it is a false narrative.

Netanyahu at the General Assembly: False Hope

Netanyahu at the General Assembly: False Hope Israel's Prime Minister addressed the General Assembly in ample form, clearly expressing what he felt a need to say.  Netanyahu's address is lengthy; I intended to post excerpts with commentary, but it is too target rich and interconnected.   I will therefore reproduce the entire transcript, highlighting the most important paragraphs and inserting superscripts linked to my comments, which follow the transcript in an enumerated list.  Click the superscripts to read the related comments, then press your Backspace key to return to your place in the transcript. 

Ladies and gentlemen, Israel has extended its hand in peace from the moment it was established 63 years ago. On behalf of Israel and the Jewish people, I extend that hand again today. I extend it to the people of Egypt and Jordan, with renewed friendship for neighbors with whom we have made peace. I extend it to the people of Turkey, with respect and good will. I extend it to the people of Libya and Tunisia, with admiration for those trying to build a democratic future. I extend it to the other peoples of North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, with whom we want to forge a new beginning. I extend it to the people of Syria, Lebanon and Iran, with awe at the courage of those fighting brutal repression.

But most especially, I extend my hand to the Palestinian people1, with whom we seek a just and lasting peace.

Ladies and gentlemen, in Israel our hope for peace never wanes. Our scientists, doctors, innovator apply their genius to improve the world of tomorrow. Our artists, our writers, enrich the heritage of humanity. Now, I know that this is not exactly the image of Israel that is often portrayed in this hall. After all, it was here in 1975 that the age-old yearning of my people to restore our national life in our ancient biblical homeland - it was then that this was branded shamefully, as racism. And it was here in 1980, right here, that the historic peace agreement between Israel and Egypt wasn't praised; it was denounced! And it's here, year after year that Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation. It's singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined. Twenty-one out of the 27 General Assembly resolutions condemn Israel - the one true democracy in the Middle East.

Well, this is an unfortunate part of the U.N. institution. It's the theater of the absurd. It doesn't only cast Israel as the villain; it often casts real villains in leading roles:  Gadhafi's Libya chaired the U.N. Commission on Human Rights; Saddam's Iraq headed the U.N. Committee on Disarmament.  You might say: That's the past. Well, here's what's happening now - right now, today,  Hizbullah-controlled Lebanon now presides over the U.N. Security Council. This means, in effect, that a terror organization presides over the body entrusted with guaranteeing the world's security.2

You couldn't make this thing up.

So here in the U.N., automatic majorities can decide anything.3 They can decide that the sun sets in the west or rises in the west. I think the first has already been pre-ordained. But they can also decide - they have decided - that the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Judaism's holiest place, is occupied Palestinian territory.

And yet even here in the General Assembly, the truth can sometimes break through. In 1984 when I was appointed Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, I visited the great rabbi of Lubavich. He said to me - and ladies and gentlemen, I don't want any of you to be offended because from personal experience of serving here, I know there are many honorable men and women, many capable and decent people, serving their nations here. But here's what the rebbe said to me. He said to me, you'll be serving in a house of many lies. And then he said, remember that even in the darkest place, the light of a single candle can be seen far and wide.

Today I hope that the light of truth will shine, if only for a few minutes, in a hall that for too long has been a place of darkness for my country. So as Israel's prime minister, I didn't come here to win applause. I came here to speak the truth.  The truth is that Israel wants peace. The truth is that I want peace. The truth is that in the Middle East at all times, but especially during these turbulent days, peace must be anchored in security4. The truth is that we cannot achieve peace5 through U.N. resolutions, but only through direct negotiations between the parties. The truth is that so far the Palestinians have refused to negotiate. The truth is that Israel wants peace with a Palestinian state, but the Palestinians want a state without peace6. And the truth is you shouldn't let that happen.

Ladies and gentlemen, when I first came here 27 years ago, the world was divided between East and West. Since then the Cold War ended, great civilizations have risen from centuries of slumber, hundreds of millions have been lifted out of poverty, countless more are poised to follow, and the remarkable thing is that so far this monumental historic shift has largely occurred peacefully. Yet a malignancy is now growing between East and West that threatens the peace of all. It seeks not to liberate, but to enslave, not to build, but to destroy.

That malignancy is militant Islam7. It cloaks itself in the mantle of a great faith8, yet it murders Jews, Christians and Muslims alike with unforgiving impartiality. On September 11th it killed thousands of Americans, and it left the twin towers in smoldering ruins. Last night I laid a wreath on the 9/11 memorial. It was deeply moving. But as I was going there, one thing echoed in my mind: the outrageous words of the president of Iran on this podium yesterday. He implied that 9/11 was an American conspiracy. Some of you left this hall. All of you should have.

Since 9/11, militant Islamists9 slaughtered countless other innocents - in London and Madrid, in Baghdad and Mumbai, in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in every part of Israel. I believe that the greatest danger facing our world is that this fanaticism will arm itself with nuclear weapons. And this is precisely what Iran is trying to do.

Can you imagine that man who ranted here yesterday - can you imagine him armed with nuclear weapons? The international community must stop Iran before it's too late. If Iran is not stopped, we will all face the specter of nuclear terrorism, and the Arab Spring could soon become an Iranian winter.

That would be a tragedy. Millions of Arabs have taken to the streets to replace tyranny with liberty10, and no one would benefit more than Israel if those committed to freedom and peace would prevail.

This is my fervent hope. But as the prime minister of Israel, I cannot risk the future of the Jewish state on wishful thinking11. Leaders must see reality as it is, not as it ought to be. We must do our best to shape the future, but we cannot wish away the dangers of the present.

And the world around Israelis definitely becoming more dangerous. Militant Islam has already taken over Lebanon and Gaza. It's determined to tear apart the peace treaties between Israel and Egypt and between Israel and Jordan. It's poisoned many Arab minds against Jews and Israel, against America and the West. It opposes not the policies of Israel but the existence of Israel12.

Now, some argue that the spread of militant Islam, especially in these turbulent times - if you want to slow it down, they argue, Israel must hurry to make concessions, to make territorial compromises. And this theory sounds simple. Basically it goes like this: Leave the territory, and peace will be advanced. The moderates will best rengthened, the radicals will be kept at bay. And don't worry about the pesky details of how Israel will actually defend itself; international troops will do the job.13

These people say to me constantly: Just make a sweeping offer, and everything will work out. You know, there's only one problem with that theory. We've tried it and it hasn't worked. In 2000 Israel made a sweeping peace offer that met virtually all of the Palestinian demands. Arafat rejected it. The Palestinians then launched a terror attack that claimed a thousand Israeli lives.

Prime Minister Olmert afterwards made an even more sweeping offer, in 2008. President Abbas didn't even respond to it.

But Israel did more than just make sweeping offers. We actually left territory. We withdrew from Lebanon in2000 and from every square inch of Gaza in 2005. That didn't calm the Islamic storm, the militant Islamic storm that threatens us. It only brought the storm closer and made it stronger.

Hizbullah and Hamas fired thousands of rockets against our cities from the very territories we vacated. See, when Israel left Lebanon and Gaza, the moderates didn't defeat the radicals, the moderates were devoured by the radicals. And I regret to say that international troops like UNIFIL in Lebanon and EUBAM in Gaza didn't stopthe radicals from attacking Israel.

We left Gaza hoping for peace.

We didn't freeze the settlements in Gaza, we uprooted them. We did exactly what the theory says: Get out, go back to the 1967 borders, dismantle the settlements.

And I don't think people remember how far we went to achieve this. We uprooted thousands of people from their homes. We pulled children out of their schools and their kindergartens. We bulldozed synagogues. We even moved loved ones from their graves. And then, having done all that, we gave the keys of Gaza to President Abbas.

Now the theory says it should all work out, and President Abbas and the Palestinian Authority now could build a peaceful state in Gaza. You can remember that the entire world applauded. They applauded our withdrawal as an act of great statesmanship. It was a bold act of peace.

But ladies and gentlemen, we didn't get peace. We got war. We got Iran, which through its proxy Hamas promptly kicked out the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority collapsed in a day - in one day.

President Abbas just said on this podium that the Palestinians are armed only with their hopes and dreams. Yeah, hopes, dreams and 10,000 missiles and Grad rockets supplied by Iran, not to mention the river of lethal weapons now flowing into Gaza from the Sinai, from Libya, and from elsewhere.

Thousands of missiles have already rained down on our cities. So you might understand that, given all this, Israelis rightly ask: What's to prevent this from happening again in the West Bank? See, most of our major cities in the south of the country are within a few dozen kilometers from Gaza. But in the center of the country, opposite the West Bank, our cities are a few hundred meters or at most a few kilometers away from the edge of the West Bank.

So I want to ask you. Would any of you bring danger so close to your cities, to your families? Would you act so recklessly with the lives of your citizens? Israelis prepared to have a Palestinian state in the West Bank, but we're not prepared to have another Gaza there. And that's why we need to have real security arrangements, which the Palestinians simply refuse to negotiate with us.

Israelis remember the bitter lessons of Gaza. Many of Israel's critics ignore them. They14 irresponsibly advise Israel to go down this same perilous path again. Your read what these people say and it's as if nothing happened - just repeating the same advice, the same formulas as though none of this happened.

And these critics continue to press Israel to make far-reaching concessions without first assuring Israel's security. They praise those who unwittingly feed the insatiable crocodile of militant Islam as bold statesmen. They cast as enemies of peace those of us who insist that we must first erect a sturdy barrier to keep the crocodile out, or at the very least jam an iron bar between its gaping jaws.

So in the face of the labels and the libels, Israel must heed better advice. Better a bad press than a good eulogy, and better still would be a fair press whose sense of history extends beyond breakfast, and which recognizes Israel's legitimate security concerns.15

I believe that in serious peace negotiations, these needs and concerns can be properly addressed16, but they will not be addressed without negotiations. And the needs are many, because Israel is such a tiny country. Without Judea and Samaria, the West Bank, Israel is all of 9 miles wide.

I want to put it for you in perspective, because you're all in the city. That's about two-thirds the length of Manhattan. It's the distance between Battery Park and Columbia University. And don't forget that the people who live in Brooklyn and New Jersey are considerably nicer than some of Israel's neighbors.

So how do you protect such a tiny country, surrounded by people sworn to its destruction and armed to the teeth by Iran? Obviously you can't defend it from within that narrow space alone. Israel needs greater strategic depth, and that's exactly why Security Council Resolution 242 didn't require Israel to leave all the territories it captured in the Six-Day War. It talked about withdrawal from territories, to secure and defensible boundaries. And to defend itself, Israel must therefore maintain a long-term Israeli military presence in critical strategic areas in the West Bank.

I explained this to President Abbas. He answered that if a Palestinian state was to be a sovereign country, it could never accept such arrangements. Why not? America has had troops in Japan, Germany and South Korea for more than a half a century. Britain has had an an air base in Cyprus. France has forces in three independent African nations. None of these states claim that they're not sovereign countries.

And there are many other vital security issues that also must be addressed. Take the issue of airspace. Again, Israel's small dimensions create huge security problems. America can be crossed by jet airplane in six hours. To fly across Israel, it takes three minutes. So is Israel's tiny airspace to be chopped in half and given to a Palestinian state not at peace with Israel?

Our major international airport is a few kilometers away from the West Bank. Without peace, will our planes become targets for antiaircraft missiles placed in the adjacent Palestinian state? And how will we stop the smuggling into the West Bank? It's not merely the West Bank, it's the West Bank mountains. It just dominates the coastal plain where most of Israel's population sits below. How could we prevent the smuggling into these mountains of those missiles that could be fired on our cities?17

I bring up these problems because they're not theoretical problems. They're very real. And for Israelis, they're life-and-death matters. All these potential cracks in Israel's security have to be sealed in a peace agreement before a Palestinian state is declared, not afterwards, because if you leave it afterwards, they won't be sealed. And these problems will explode in our face and explode the peace.18

The Palestinians should first make peace with Israel and then get their state. But I also want to tell you this. After such a peace agreement is signed, Israel will not be the last country to welcome a Palestinian state as a new member of the United Nations. We will be the first19.

And there's one more thing. Hamas has been violating international law20 by holding our soldier Gilad Shalit captive for five years.

They haven't given even one Red Cross visit. He's held in a dungeon, in darkness, against all international norms. Gilad Shalit is the son of Aviva and Noam Shalit. He is the grandson of Zvi Shalit, who escaped the Holocaust by coming in the 1930s as a boy to the land of Israel. Gilad Shalit is the son of every Israeli family. Every nation represented here should demand his immediate release. If you want to pass a resolution about the Middle East today, that's the resolution you should pass21.

Ladies and gentlemen, last year in Israel in Bar-Ilan University, this year in the Knesset and in the U.S. Congress, I laid out my vision for peace in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the Jewish state. Yes, the Jewish state. After all, this is the body that recognized the Jewish state 64 years ago. Now, don't you think it's about time that Palestinians did the same?22

The Jewish state of Israel will always protect the rights of all its minorities, including the more than onw million Arab citizens of Israel. I wish I could say the same thing about a future Palestinian state, for as Palestinian officials made clear the other day - in fact, I think they made it right here in New York - they said the Palestinian state won't allow any Jews in it. They'll be Jew-free - Judenrein. That's ethnic cleansing. There are laws today in Ramallah that make the selling of land to Jews punishable by death. That's racism. And you know which laws this evokes.23

Israel has no intention whatsoever to change the democratic character of our state. We just don't want the Palestinians to try to change the Jewish character of our state. We want to give up the fantasy of flooding Israel with millions of Palestinians.

President Abbas just stood here, and he said that the core of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the settlements. Well, that's odd. Our conflict was raging for nearly half a century before there was a single Israeli settlement in the West Bank. So if what President Abbas is saying was true, then the - I guess that the settlements he's talking about are Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jaffa, Be'er Sheva. Maybe24 that's what he meant the other day when he said that Israel has been occupying Palestinian land for 63 years. He didn't say from 1967; he said from1948. I hope somebody will bother to ask him this question because it illustrates a simple truth: The core of the conflict is not the settlements. The settlements are a result of the conflict.

The settlements have to be - it's an issue that has to be addressed and resolved in the course of negotiations. But the core of the conflict25 has always been and unfortunately remains the refusal of the Palestinians to recognize a Jewish state in any border.

I think it's time that the Palestinian leadership recognizes what every serious international leader has recognized, from Lord Balfour and Lloyd George in 1917, to President Truman in1948, to President Obama26 just two days ago right here: Israel is the Jewish state.

President Abbas, stop walking around this issue. Recognize the Jewish state, and make peace with us. In such a genuine peace, Israel is prepared to make painful compromises. We believe that the Palestinians should be neither the citizens of Israel nor its subjects. They should live in a free state of their own27. But they should be ready, like us, for compromise. And we will know that they're ready for compromise and for peace when they start taking Israel's security requirements seriously and when they stop denying our historical connection to our ancient homeland.

I often hear them accuse Israel of Judaizing Jerusalem. That's like accusing America of Americanizing Washington, or the British of Anglicizing London. You know why we're called "Jews"? Because we come from Judea.

In my office in Jerusalem, there's an ancient seal. It's a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. The seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2,700 years, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there's a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew. His name was Netanyahu. That's my last name. My first name, Benjamin, dates back a thousand years earlier to Benjamin - Binyamin - the son of Jacob, who was also known as Israel. Jacob and his 12 sons roamed these same hills of Judea and Samaria 4,000 years ago, and there's been a continuous Jewish presence in the land ever since.

And for those Jews who were exiled from our land, they never stopped dreaming of coming back: Jews in Spain, on the eve of their expulsion; Jews in the Ukraine, fleeing the pogroms; Jews fighting the Warsaw Ghetto, as the Nazis were circling around it. They never stopped praying, they never stopped yearning. They whispered: Next year in Jerusalem. Next year in the promised land.

As the prime minister of Israel, I speak for a hundred generations of Jews who were dispersed throughout the lands, who suffered every evil under the Sun, but who never gave up hope of restoring their national life in the one and only Jewish state.

Ladies and gentlemen, I continue to hope that President Abbas will be my partner in peace. I've worked hard to advance that peace. The day I came into office, I called for direct negotiations without preconditions. President Abbas didn't respond. I outlined a vision of peace of two states for two peoples. He still didn't respond. I removed hundreds of roadblocks and checkpoints, to ease freedom of movement in the Palestinian areas; this facilitated a fantastic growth in the Palestinian economy. But again - no response. I took the unprecedented step of freezing new buildings in the settlements for 10 months. No prime minister did that before, ever. Once again - you applaud, but there was no response. No response.

In the last few weeks, American officials have put forward ideas to restart peace talks. There were things in those ideas about borders that I didn't like. There were things thereabout the Jewish state that I'm sure the Palestinians didn't like.

But with all my reservations, I was willing to move forward on these American ideas.

President Abbas, why don't you join me? We have to stop negotiating about the negotiations. Let's just get on with it. Let's negotiate peace.

I spent years defending Israel on the battlefield. I spent decades defending Israel in the court of public opinion. President Abbas, you've dedicated your life to advancing the Palestinian cause. Must this conflict continue for generations, or will we be able our children and our grandchildren to speak in years ahead of how we found a way to end it? That's what we should aim for, and that's what I believe we can achieve.

In two and a half years, we met in Jerusalem only once, even though my door has always been open to you. If you wish, I'll come to Ramallah. Actually, I have a better suggestion. We've both just flown thousands of miles to New York. Now we're in the same city. We're in the same building. So let's meet here today in the United Nations. Who's there to stop us? What is there to stop us? If we genuinely want peace28, what is there to stop us from meeting today and beginning peace negotiations?

And I suggest we talk openly and honestly. Let's listen to one another. Let's do as we say in the Middle East: Let's talk "doogri". That means straightforward. I'll tell you my needs and concerns. You'll tell me yours. And with God's help, we'll find the common ground of peace29.

There's an old Arab saying that you cannot applaud with one hand. Well, the same is true of peace. I cannot make peace alone. I cannot make peace without you30. President Abbas, I extend my hand - the hand of Israel - in peace. I hope that you will grasp that hand. We are both the sons of Abraham. My people call him Avraham. Your people call him Ibrahim. We share the same patriarch. We dwell in the same land. Our destinies are intertwined.

Let us realize the vision of Isaiah:

"העם ההולכים בחושך ראו אור גדול"

"The people who walk in darkness will see a great light."31

Let that light be the light of peace.

"העם ההולכים בחושך ראו אור גדול"

"The people who walk in darkness will see a great light."

Let that light be the light of peace.

 


  1. I urge Netanyahu and his allies to quit telling that lie. "Palestine" is Israel and the "Palestinian people" are Jews.  The blood thirsty rabble referred to by the world as Palestinians are no more than undifferentiated Arabs, asserting a false and malignant narrative of lost civilization.  Follow these links to the facts:  We have all been had!   Palestinian people do not exist   The most vital quotes are included with more background information in this blog post: Peace: in a Pig’s …    They will not grasp the proffered  hand of friendship because their hands are full of weapons, ready to attack you.
  2. The cat presides over a meeting of mice as they decide who will put a bell on the cat's collar.
  3. Since Islam conquered vast territories, the combination of Islamic satrapies and their allies forms a majority in the General Assembly. 
  4. Security will be a mirage beckoning just over the horizon so long as Israel is outnumbered and out gunned by vast populations thirsting for Jewish blood. No treaties, no borders, no institution, no forces; nothing can secure Israel while her neighbors continue to be enslaved by a blood thirsty demon who demands genocide as the price of admission to his celestial bordello. Islamic eschatology says plainly that Muslims must kill the last Jew before the gates of Paradise will swing open.  
  5. You can not achieve peace so long as there are Islamic believers living upon the surface of the earth.  Muslims are taught and believe that Jews: earned Allah's wrath, are the worst of living creatures, are cursed by Allah and are strongest in enmity to Muslims.  Muslims are commanded to wage war against Jews.  Allah has promised them that he will constantly send someone to humiliate & torment the Jews until the last day.  Muslims are promised eternity in the celestial bordello if they wage jihad and threatened with eternal torment if they sit at home. These facts must be fatal to the fabulistic maundery that peace is possible. Only a damned fool believes it; only a liar says it. Both are worthy of condemnation
  6. They want neither; their tactical objective is the genocidal destruction of Israel.  Their strategic objective is the restoration of the caliphate and global conquest.
  7. Netanyahu swerves so close to yet far from the truth. The malignancy is Islam. Not "militant", "radical" or "extremist"  Islam; its just plain Islam, as Moe preached and exemplified it. You should read the entire Qur'an & at least one hadith collection but most people won't do that. At minimum, these two ayat, one hadith which confirms them  and the Islamic law that codifies them should be sufficient to disabuse any sentient person of the idiotic bigotry which declares peace possible. 8:39, 9:29, Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and Reliance of the Traveller, O9.  Read them and curse Islam if you have a soul. 
  8. Islam is not a great faith, it is a great evil disguised as a faith; its "original religion" is jihad, whose legal definition is "war against non-Muslims".
  9. The correct word is believers, defined as having sold their lives to Allah so that they fight in his cause, killing and being killed in return for guaranteed admission to the celestial bordello. 
  10. They replaced one tyrant with another, liberty has no part in "Arab spring".
  11. But that is exactly what you do by pretending that peace is possible with Muslims.
  12. Islam can never tolerate the existence of Israel because the loss of conquered land stands as evidence of the fact that Allah is an impotent idol. Allah promised victory. He also commanded Muslims to drive out those who drove them out.  So long as Israel exists, faith in Allah is at risk to rationality because of the evidence of his impotence. 
  13. Netanyahu sets up what appears to be a straw man; unfortunately, it is not a fallacy, it is reality, as he demonstrates in the succeeding paragraphs.
  14. They refers to Barack Hussein Obama & the Quartet who sing the siren song of surrender.
  15. Meditate on this wisdom for it is true. Israel absolutely must reject the disingenuous demands for surrender; she has no choice because any other course of action is suicidal.
  16. Which provisions of the Oslo Accords did Arafat implement and maintain?  Only a damn fool believes that Abbas and his successors will perform any better than Arafat.
  17. Prevent it by eradicating Islam from the region. There is no other possibility. If you want peace, get rid of Islam; make it extinct.
  18. That is the understatement of the week. Get a clue, for Chrissakes.
  19. On the 34th day of the month of Never. It ain't going to happen. Muslims make war, they do not make peace; its what Islam is; what Muslims do.
  20. The attack in which Shalit was seized and others were murdered was sufficient violation of international law. Holding him hostage is exacerbates the violation. A self-respecting nation would make that act the last of its kind by wiping the offenders from the face of the earth.
  21. They should; they won't because the institution has been subverted by the predatory aggressor: Islam. 
  22. The resolution they are about to pass will effectively revoke that recognition retroactively. Muslims will never recognize Israel as the Jewish state, for reasons explained in # 12.
  23.  ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG. But who gives a damn? Nobody will enforce them against Islam.
  24. Only damned fools doubt it. "From the river to the sea!" should be your first clue to full comprehension of the fatal fact.
  25. The core of the conflict is the existence of one unconverted Jew. Your answer is Muslim or dead; that is the only answer you will ever get from them. Conversely, your response must be secular or dead.  You have no acceptable alternative to the extinction of Islam.  If Islam is not extinct, Jews will be.
  26.  Mulims are liars. Obama is a Muslim. Obama is not sincere when he claims to recognize Israel as the Jewish state. If he was, he would not disrespectfully demand that you commit national suicide. 
  27. Jordan.
  28. They don't want peace, they want genocidal conquest. Get a clue already.
  29. The cemetery.
  30. Peace is only possible without Islam; get a clue.
  31. The last thing you will see: the blinding flash of a nuclear detonation.

Winston Churchill Quotes

  • A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him.
  • Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement.
  • Although prepared for martyrdom, I preferred that it be postponed.
  • Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
  • Battles are won by slaughter and maneuver. The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver, the less he demands in slaughter.
  • Danger - if you meet it promptly and without flinching - you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
  • I always seem to get inspiration and renewed vitality by contact with this great novel land of yours which sticks up out of the Atlantic.
  • I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
  • I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
  • I like a man who grins when he fights.
  • I was only the servant of my country and had I, at any moment, failed to express her unflinching resolve to fight and conquer, I should at once have been rightly cast aside.
  • If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time-a tremendous whack.
  • In war as in life, it is often necessary when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.
  • It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.
  • Moral of the Work. In war: resolution. In defeat: defiance. In victory: magnanimity. In peace: goodwill.
  • Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
  • Never, never, never give up.
  • No folly is more costly than the folly of intolerant idealism.
  • One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
  • Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
  • Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
  • The first quality that is needed is audacity.
  • The nose of the bulldog has been slanted backwards so that he can breathe without letting go.
  • The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
  • There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
  • These are not dark days: these are great days - the greatest days our country has ever lived.
  • They are decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent.
  • True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.
  • Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
  • War is a game that is played with a smile. If you can't smile, grin. If you can't grin, keep out of the way till you can.
  • War is mainly a catalogue of blunders.
  • We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
  • We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.
  • When the eagles are silent the parrots begin to jabber.
  • When you are winning a war almost everything that happens can be claimed to be right and wise.
  • You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

Ronald Reagan Quotes

  • "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant: It's just that they know so much that isn't so."
  • Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.
  • All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk.
  • Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources
  • Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
  • Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.
  • Double, no triple, our troubles and we'd still be better off than any other people on earth. It is time that we recognized that ours was, in truth, a noble cause.
  • Facts are stupid things.
  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
  • Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.
  • Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
  • Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them.
  • History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.
  • How can a president not be an actor?
  • How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
  • I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
  • I will stand on, and continue to use, the figures I have used, because I believe they are correct. Now, I'm not going to deny that you don't now and then slip up on something; no one bats a thousand.
  • In Israel, free men and women are every day demonstrating the power of courage and faith. Back in 1948 when Israel was founded, pundits claimed the new country could never survive. Today, no one questions that. Israel is a land of stability and democracy in a region of tryanny and unrest.
  • Let us ask ourselves; "What kind of people do we think we are?".
  • Man is not free unless government is limited.
  • My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out.
  • No mother would ever willingly sacrifice her sons for territorial gain, for economic advantage, for ideology.
  • Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.
  • Our forbearance should never be misunderstood. Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will. When action is required to preserve our national security, we will act.
  • Protecting the rights of even the least individual among us is basically the only excuse the government has for even existing.
  • Some people wonder all their lives if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem.
  • The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas - a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.
  • The United Sates has much to offer the third world war.
  • There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
  • To paraphrase Winston Churchill, I did not take the oath I have just taken with the intention of presiding over the dissolution of the world's strongest economy.
  • Today we did what we had to do. They counted on America to be passive. They counted wrong.
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
  • We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.
  • We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
  • We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.
  • Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.
  • You know, if I listened to Michael Dukakis long enough, I would be convinced we're in an economic downturn and people are homeless and going without food and medical attention and that we've got to do something about the unemployed.
