Israel Threaten with Boycott by Bigots
The European Union's ambassador to Israel has warned the Jewish State that it would likely endure "increasing isolation" if peace talks with the Palestinians collapse. Lars Faaborg-Andersen said that such a scenario wouldn't necessarily be a result of European policy, but rather the actions of private companies (is it a given order?). His comments echo those made by US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is brokering the talks and who warned last week that the boycott would expand if talks fail (he is supposed to be an impartial broker). Regarding a possible economic boycott, Netanyahu said that "the same international forces pressuring Israel should be pressuring the Palestinian Authority and clarify what the ramifications of failing to reach a peace agreement would be for the Palestinians." (As long as Jews suffer - bigots do not care about 'poor Palestinians'. Not once, during the entire Arab-Israel conflict, have those traditional anti-Semites of Europe and all Americas threatened Arab/Muslim countries, PLO, PA or Hamas with isolation, economic boycott or withholding aid funds if they do not stop their terror campaign against Israel. Even after 9/11 Saudi Arabia is still the best friend of the United States!)
Actress Scarlett Johansson has quit her role as an ambassador for Oxfam, the charity said, after she fell out with the group for endorsing an Israeli firm operating in the occupied West Bank. The Hollywood star has become the public face for drinks-maker SodaStream and is due to appear in an advert for the company that is set to air during the US 'Super Bowl' football game. (Anti-Semitic international NGOs do not need a reason to hate Israel . They love 'hot-spots' which are created by Islamic terrorist groups. It justifies their corrupt existence and obtaining tax-payers' funds, so generously provided to them by 'Israel-friendly' governments. SodaStream employs 500 Arabs, but Oxfam would prefer them to sit home and play a role of "poor refugees"!)
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is certain that the issue of settlements is only an excuse for those who seek to boycott Israel . Lieberman believes that due to the process of "Islamization" in Europe, along with its severe economic crisis. European countries are working towards boycotting Israel in order to gain Arab funds. Israeli diplomats in embassies in Europe have identified a negative trend that is on the rise, and a tendency to present a caring front towards Palestinians. "There are companies that decide to boycott Israeli companies because they want to be part of this wave," a Foreign Ministry source said. "In fact, it is almost impossible to do anything against it." (They used to boycott Jewish businesses before WW2, now they boycott Israel. Decent people must boycott companies that boycott Israel!)
US Assistant Secretary of State Nisha Biswal said Washington would table the third UN human rights (useless) resolution against Sri Lanka for violations of international rules against war crimes. (sanctions are not under consideration, just another fake condemnation). The UN believes 40,000 people died during the final months of Sri Lanka's 25 year civil war. (In contrast, in spite of almost 70 years of war against Arab/Muslim countries and their proxies - PLO, PA, Hamas and Hezbollah - Israel has been conducting the fight against Islamic terrorism in the most humane way, trying to prevent "collateral damage", unlike Assad who is using indiscriminate barrel-bombs against his own people in Syria and even the US in Iraq and Afghanistan .)
The number of terrorist attacks targeting Jews in Judea and Samaria increased significantly in 2013 over the previous year, according to a report published by Israel s domestic security agency, the Shin Bet. Overall, 1,271 terrorist attacks were reported in 2013, up from just 578 in 2012. Six Israelis were killed in terror attacks in 2013. Three of those killed over the last year were the victims of knife attacks, two were shot by Palestinian snipers, and one was executed after being abducted by Arab terrorists.

It is difficult to explain how the supposedly democratic Western press has been giving in to Islamists, be it the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or Sunni Wahhabists in Syria . Are those left-inclined correspondents and editors so suicidal that they are willing to welcome a despotic new world Caliphate, knowing that Islamists hate atheists even more than democrats? They are going to be the first victims of the new Islamic order!
Egyptian security forces have been monitoring Malik Obama's activities. Malik is managing funds for both the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Islamic Dawa Organization in Sudan, which has been designated by the US State Department as a terrorist state.
Secretary of State John Kerry has ordered a reassessment of Gen. John Allen's Israeli-Palestinian security plan - especially the replacement of Israeli units along the Jordan Valley border shared between Israel and Jordan. Not only is Israel emphatically opposed to this, so too is Jordan's King Abdullah, who won't hear of his kingdom's exposure to US electronic devices or a Palestinian presence. (No pressure on Jordan to accept this bogus plan! As it is said: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting it to come out different")
Israel is the US 's Major Strategic Partner
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, along with Rep Ted Deutch, who are the top two members on the House Foreign Affairs Committee's Middle East subcommittee, have introduced a bill naming Israel a "major strategic partner" of the United States, a title enjoyed by no one else on the planet, and encouraging enhanced cooperation on water, energy, homeland security, and missile development.
A captured member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claims that the ISIL and other Islamic militant groups in Syria are led by Prince Adbul Rahman al-Faisal, the son of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and the brother of the current Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal. This revelation suggests the Saudi leadership is directly funding the Islamic militant groups, which have basically taken over the opposition forces. (It is a well-known secret that Wahhabi Saudi Arabia promotes, in stealth, the world domination of Islam - the world Caliphate!)
New Tunisian Tourism Minister Amel Karboul resigned just hours after being sworn in amid controversy surrounding her 2006 visit to Israel.
A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood - Anas Altikriti, a top British lobbyist, whose work has also been tied to Hamas - was recently hosted at the White House for a meeting with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, prompting an outcry from critics of the global Islamist organization. (When Israel talks to China or Russia Obama is unhappy!)
BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) activists slammed PA chief Mahmoud Abbas for not joining in with them to boycott Israel - and on Monday, the PA revealed just how uninvolved it was in the BDS movement. According to a PA report, 70% of the PA's imports were from Israel, worth $3.5 billion.
Quotes of the Week:
"I am not going to be intimidated. I am not going to stand down with respect to President Obama's commitment to trying to find peace in the Middle East." - US Secretary of State John Kerry, in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper - Many people still believe that "the king is good, ministers are bad!" Kerry has admitted that he is just a pawn of long-standing US government policy of intimidation of Israel - just because it is the Jewish state!
"We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved." - US President Lyndon Johnson, referring to UN Resolution 242 September 1968 - Yet, each US administration has been pressuring Israel to make concessions, surrender Jewish land, to terrorists of the fake Palestinian nation.

Mahmoud Abbas is not a serious partner for negotiating with Israel because he does not have the authority to make decisions for the (so-called) Palestinian people...
Abbas outlined his positions on January 10, 2014, at a meeting in Ramallah, where he demanded full sovereignty in all the territory conquered by Israel from the Kingdom of Jordan and Egypt in the defensive war it fought in 1967 ("the '67 lands"), and especially in the area called "eastern Jerusalem," which includes the Old City, the Temple Mount, the Jewish Quarter, the Western Wall, and other Jewish historical sites...
Abbas has a similar attitude regarding what the Palestinians call "the right of return," which Abbas claims is the "personal right" of every refugee and his descendants for all generations...
Abbas' words express a clear message that the Palestinians see the negotiations as simply a tool to achieve Palestinian rights according to the Palestinian viewpoint, and they are not seeking a way to compromise with Israel on essential issues...
&The first Palestinian objective in their order of priorities is to receive full sovereignty on the territory of 1967 - while leaving the conflict wide open (to gain control of all Palestine).
Israel will be gone in eight years, according to Fathi Hamad, Hamas Interior Minister. Hamad noted in his speech that the PA Arabs, according to Islamic prophecies, will enter the Al Aqsa Mosque "in jubilation and victory like they entered it the first time". After the "liberation" of Al-Aqsa Mosque, said Hamad, the "Hittin" system will prevail. That statement refers to Saladin's victory over the Crusaders, when he conquered the Land of Israel during the Battle of Hittin/Hattin. Most non-Muslim forces were slaughtered or enslaved then. "We'll destroy the enemy," Hamad assured his audience, noting that achieving that goal would take "eight years."
