But, Abu Mazen is a Man of Peace…

Since 2007, US foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority and to PA-controlled NGOs reached nearly $2BN, in addition to $3.7BN contributed by the US to UNRWA since 1950. Has American foreign aid to Abu Mazen advanced moderation, the pursuit of peace and US national security interests?

 

On April 20, 2010, Abu Mazen named a Ramallah street in honor of Abu Jihad, the architect of PLO terrorism during 1965-1988. 

De-Linking the Iran-Palestinian Linkage

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3876368,00.html, April 15, 2010

With the advent of the Washington Nuclear Summit, it is incumbent upon Prime Minister Netanyahu to refute the notion that a linkage exists, supposedly, between the campaign to deny Iran nuclear capabilities on one hand and the Palestinian issue on the other hand.

Intel-Israel Exports Surge

Straight from the Jerusalem Boardroom #141, April 02, 2010

Intel-Israel's exports surged 145% in 2009, reaching a record $3.4BN.  The record was facilitated by the completion of Intel's $4BN sixth plant in Israel.  Intel is currently negotiation with Israel's government a possible $2.7BN expansion of the plant. Intel employs 6,340 persons at its two plants and four R&D centers in Israel. 120 workers were recently hired by Intel. Intel has invested $6.1BN in its Israel presence, boosted by a $1.2BN Israeli investment (Washington Post, Feb. 8, 2010).

Hillary Adds Fuel to the Fire

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3867836,00.html, March 25, 2010

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, exposed worrisome aspects of President Obama's policy toward Jerusalem in particular and toward Israel in general, during her March 22, 2010 AIPAC speech.  Clinton ignored the Texas colloquialism: "The first thing to do, if you find yourself in a deep hole, is stop digging." The former Senator and aspiring presidential candidate is, apparently, determined to learn from mistakes by repeating – rather than avoiding – them.

Jerusalem Deserves Better

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s apology to Vice President Biden – for authorizing the construction of Jewish homes in Jerusalem during Biden’s visit – departs sharply from the assertive legacy of all Israeli Prime Ministers from Ben Gurion (1948) to Shamir (1992). It is consistent with the retreating Oslo state of mind, which has afflicted all Prime Ministers since 1993. This apologetic response ignores the significant “Jerusalem Divide” between the dramatically-weakened President Obama on one hand and the majority of the American People and Congress on the other hand. Moreover, it triggers further pressure by Obama, radicalizes Arab demands, undermines the future of Jerusalem as the indivisible capital of the Jewish State, and erodes Israel’s strategic posture in Washington and in the Middle East. Placating President Obama will certainly not transform his position on Iran from engagement to confrontation and will not produce a Green Light for an Israeli attack on Iran.
