Palestinian Refugees – The Truth (whose responsibility?)

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #214, June 13, 2008

While the surrounding Arab countries – assisted by Palestinian Arabs - invaded the newly established Jewish State:


1.  The British Mandate urged Arabs and Jews (November 30, 1947- May 14, 1948, before the outbreak of the war) to evacuate small mixed towns, where they constituted a minority.  Arabs complied, while Jews defied. Consequently, Alan Cunningham, the British High Commissioner, stated: “Arabs are leaving the country with their families in considerable numbers, and there is an exodus from the mixed towns to the rural Arab centers…The panic of the Arab middle class persists and there is a steady exodus of those who can afford to leave the country (December 1947, five months before the 1948/9 War)”. 

Soft & Reluctant Support for Palestinian state among Israel’s Jews

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #213, April 22, 2008

1.  Support – among Israeli Jews – for the proposed Palestinian state (“Two States Solution”) is soft and reluctant, according to a March 31-April 1 poll conducted by the Tel Aviv University Center For Peace Research.

Palestinian Christians Swept Under the Annapolis Carpet!


1. “Bethlehem will become a town of churches devoid of Christians, if you transfer the area to the Palestinian Authority,” predicted the late Mayor of Bethlehem, Elias Freij, pleading – in 1993 – not to transfer the area to PLO control. The heads of Bethlehem and Beit Jallah monasteries begged the US and Israel – in 1993 – to refrain from transferring the area to the Palestinian Authority.  Their request was denied, in order to advance the Oslo Process…

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #205, August 10, 2007

US policy-makers have contended that the establishment of a Palestinian State would resolve the Palestinian issue, which is – supposedly – the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict.  Really?

The Proposed Palestinian State – US Asset or Liability?

Straight From the Jerusalem Cloakroom #204, July 13, 2007

1.  The nature of the proposed Palestinian state and its impact on regional stability, terrorism and vital US interests and values are attested by the raging Palestinian civil war and by the track record of the Palestinian Authority (PA) since 1993 and the PLO/Fatah since 1964 and 1959.  It has been characterized by hate education, homicide bombing, systematic violent violation of commitments, inter-Arab treachery, corruption and oppression of Palestinians, in general, and the Christian community of Bethlehem in particular.

“Defense Shmefense” – How not to combat Palestinian Terrorism

Passover's Daye'nou & the Proposed Palestinian State

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #202, March 27, 2007

How many assumptions have the Palestinian State Supporters (PSS) bestowed upon us?


1.  If the PSS had ONLY assumed that snatching the PLO (in 1993) from the jaws of oblivion in Mideast terrorist camps, installing the PLO onto hilltops overlooking the door steps of its intended victim (Israel), arming and training the Palestinians, rewarding the PLO with a Nobel Peace Prize and with frequent access to the White House, and showering upon the Palestinians a multi-billion dollar aid-package, would pave the road to A MODERATE PALESTINIAN STATE AND PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE WITH ISRAEL, DA’YE’NOU (it would suffice);

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #192, June 25, 2006

Funding Abu Mazen’s Hate Education

Striaght from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #190, March 13, 2006

1.  Abu Mazen's education system reflects his ideology/strategy, more than his dialogue with the West. Abu Mazen is the architect of PA education, shaping long-term attitudes toward Israel and the Jewish People. It is the main manufacturing line of homicide bombers, a role model/reservoir for Islamic and international terrorism.
