“Palestinians” Continue National Suicide

Palestinians committing suicide

Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel
     The United States, under the leadership of Donald Trump, has moved away from a decades old failed policy of trying to appease the misnamed “Palestinian moderates” who have been thwarting every peace attempt made in the 70 years of Israel’s existence. “Several nations are now coming to the realization that if there is ever to be peace between Israel and the ‘Palestinians’, it will be in spite of and not because of closet terrorists like Abbas. It has taken bold steps, particularly the acknowledgement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and his decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem by President Trump to start the process. President Trump’s initiative may be the catalyst to finally start bringing common sense to the Israel-Palestinian problem!” (Ref. 1)

The Golan Heights Belong to Israel
     That was a year ago. This year, “President Trump announced Thursday {21 March 2019} that the United States will recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a fertile expanse of land Israel seized from Syria decades ago . . .
     “In a tweet that reverses long-standing U.S. policy, Trump said it was ‘time’ to recognize full Israeli control over the disputed swath of land . . .
     “ ‘After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!’ Trump tweeted.” (Ref. 2)

Judea and Samaria, Rather than the West Bank
     As Abbas continues to play his fiddle of stubbornness, Judea and Samaria are rapidly slipping away from him and from the “Palestinians” whom he has virtually imprisoned there. His incitements to terror against Jews and Israel mean the checkpoints, security fences and travel restrictions will remain and grow more restrictive. While Abbas fiddles away opportunity after opportunity to reach agreement with Israel, the portion of Judea and Samaria that could become the basis of a semi-independent “Palestinian” West Bank entity is shrinking more and more as Jews are returning to their Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria.

     “Israel’s Ministry of Housing published on Thursday {4 April 2019} new tenders for the construction of hundreds of housing units in communities across Judea and Samaria . . .
      - - -
     “Prime Minister Netanyahu had announced the Ariel housing units last month, just a day after the double terror attack at the Ariel Junction . . .
     “ ‘ These terrorists will not uproot us from here – the exact opposite will happen,’ he vowed.  . . .
     “Echoing a well-known biblical passage, Netanyahu said, ‘Our answer is simple: the more they afflict us, the more we will increase (in numbers) and the more we will spread.’
     “{The newspaper} Ma’ariv reports that the end of 2018 saw a record number of published tenders . . .
     “According to Ma’ariv, the recent moves reflects a trend towards greater development of Judea and Samaria: A record number of 3,788 housing tenders have been announced since the start of 2018, a marked increase over the number of 3,154 in 2017.” (Ref. 3)

     The “Palestinians” stand to permanently lose parts of Judea and Samaria as its Jewish population grows and as the “Palestinian” leadership continues to stubbornly refuse to come to any agreement with Israel. “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said {prior to the recent election} that he would annex Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank if he wins another term in office, {as he has now done.}
     “. . . three days ahead of the April 9 {election}, Netanyahu was asked why he had not extended sovereignty to large West Bank settlements, as Israel did without international recognition in east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, both captured in the 1967 Middle East war.
     “ ‘Who says that we won’t do it? We are on the way and we are discussing it,’ Netanyahu said.
     “ ‘You are asking whether we are moving on to the next stage - the answer is yes, we will move to the next stage. I am going to extend (Israeli) sovereignty and I don’t distinguish between settlement blocs and the isolated settlements.’ ” (Ref. 4) Again, the “Palestinian” leadership refuses to face reality. Instead of taking a proactive approach, they stubbornly dig in their heels on the vain hope that the world will force Israel to surrender to the “Palestinian” wishes and fantasies. But, unlike their “Palestinian” counterparts, Israel will not commit national suicide. Israel will never passively march to the gas chambers and the crematoria. Israel will never be coerced into doing so.

They’re Losing But Won’t Admit it
     Abbas and his murderous henchmen remain oblivious to the incontrovertible facts staring them in the face. They are losing, and the longer they continue to procrastinate, the more they will lose! “The number of people living in Israeli settlements {in Judea and Samaria} surged at a much faster rate than the overall Israeli population last year and predicted even more rapid growth . . .
      - - -
     “The latest data shows the population in Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria grew to 449,508 as of {1 January 2019}, up 3.3% from 435,159 people a year earlier.” (Ref. 5)

     The actions by the Trump Administration herald a new day in the seemingly endless conflict between Israel and the “Palestinian-Arab peoples”. This will hopefully mark the “end to the futile efforts of past administrations to browbeat Israel into offering more and more concessions to the terrorist leadership in Samaria-Judea {and Gaza} in the vain hope that these concessions would somehow cause the leopard (the ‘Palestinian-Arab’ leadership) to change its spots. To all but the blind, it had long been obvious that the leadership of the ‘Palestinian-Arabs’ was playing the liberal elite of the western world for fools and had no intention of reaching a peace agreement with Israel. The PLO and PLA leadership in Samaria-Judea {and Hamas in Gaza} has always had the destruction of Israel as {their} ultimate objective.
      - - -
     “With Trumps’ action, maybe the tide will finally be turning against . . . {Fatah, the PLO, and Hamas.} There are now signs of discontent with Abbas from Arab nations. This discontent may spread to the ‘Palestinian-Arabs’ who have been held hostage to the extremist position of their leaders and who suffer the most from the decades-long lack of any progress in reaching a final peace agreement with Israel. It’s the average ‘Palestinian-Arab’ in Samaria-Judea {and Gaza} who has been the victim of the failed Palestinian-Arab {leadership} . . . Perhaps now, the ‘Palestinian-Arab’ street will realize that their leadership has been following a failed policy at their expense and perhaps they will now rise up and throw out these {despots} who have failed to gain them statehood and have mired them in economic misery. They may now come to realize that the longer they wait the more they are likely to lose. . . Real peace-loving, moderate Palestinian-Arabs may finally open their eyes to the fact that they have been rendered irrelevant by their silence. Maybe now, they will no longer remain silent.” (Ref. 6)

Reject Every Peace Plan Out of Hand
     Donald Trump has promised to put forth a new peace plan to replace the long-failed peace initiatives of yore. As to be expected, the “Palestinian leaders” have rejected Trump’s peace plan out of hand, before even seeing it! “Opposing a peace initiative because you do not like its content is one thing. Opposing a peace initiative designed to improve the lives of your people is another thing entirely.
     “It is easy to see why Palestinians would be opposed to the {Trump} administration’s upcoming plan for peace in the Middle East. The Palestinians do not like what they are hearing about the plan, which has not yet been made public.
     “Palestinian hatred of the US administration and President Donald Trump is so intense that the Palestinians are prepared to prolong the misery of their people.
     “Palestinian leaders care nothing for their people’s ongoing suffering. Give those leaders jobs, money and power, and their people be damned.
     “Once again, the two million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip have fallen victim to their leaders’ greed, carelessness and idiocy.
     “{In early March of 2019,} we witnessed another example of how Palestinian leaders are prepared to fight for their own interests, at the expense of their people, all in order to remain in power and keep the funds flowing to their secret (and sometimes public) bank accounts.
     “{It was} . . . announced that the White House would soon host a meeting of ‘key countries and stakeholders to find real solutions to the problems caused’ in the Gaza Strip.
       - - -
     “The US initiative to help the two million Palestinians of the Gaza Strip should have been welcomed by Palestinians leaders. {This} is something that no Palestinian or Arab leader has done. . .
     “When was the last time the Palestinian Authority and its president, Mahmoud Abbas, convened such a meeting to discuss the plight and suffering of their people in the Gaza Strip? Not only does Abbas not care about his people in the Gaza Strip, he also bears responsibility for the crisis. [Emphasis mine] . . .
     “Abbas is hoping that the crisis in the Gaza Strip will drive Palestinians to revolt against Hamas. Abbas still can’t overcome the humiliation he experienced when Hamas expelled his PA and violently seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007. Abbas wants revenge for being humiliated at the hands of Hamas. He also wants revenge because he believes that Hamas had plotted to assassinate him while he was still living in the Gaza Strip. . .
     “So Abbas wants to fight Hamas to the last Palestinian in the Gaza Strip. Unsurprisingly, Hamas also appears to be prepared to fight Abbas to the last Palestinian in the Gaza Strip. [Emphasis mine]
      - - -
     “Hamas is not prepared to dismantle its military wing or relinquish security control over the Gaza Strip. Hamas is not prepared to distance itself from Iran and its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah. Hamas is not prepared to renounce terrorism and violence nor is it prepared to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Hamas has one course of action, which it follows with full force and energy: to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible. [Emphasis mine]
      - - -
     “Not only are Hamas and Abbas wholly shirking their responsibility to their people, they also are prepared to foil any attempt by outsiders, in this case the US, to work towards ending the crisis in the Gaza Strip.  . . .
     “. . . First, Hamas and Abbas are too busy ripping each other to shreds over money and power to take notice of their people’s misery. Second, the two Palestinian parties actively desire a continuation of the crisis: it enables them to rake Israel over the coals at various international forums. The relationship between Abbas and Hamas is bad on an epic scale, but when it comes to incitement against Israel, they are best buddies.
      - - -
     “{Hamas, the totalitarian party that rules Gaza with an iron fist is} the terror group that {has} turned the lives of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip into hell. {It is} the group that {has} brought war and death and destruction upon the people of the Gaza Strip by attacking Israel again and again and again. {it is} the group that prefers to import weapons rather than food and medicine into the Gaza Strip. {It is} the group that {is} suppressing and killing Palestinians in the Gaza Strip whose only crime is to demand reform and democracy and a better life. [Emphasis mine]
     “Hamas {is} no different from Abbas when it comes to {its}hatred of the US. Their hatred runs so deep that they would rather die than accept a remedy from the US. Not to mention the massively useful pawn that suffering Palestinians are in the popular and longstanding game of tarring and feathering Israel for the Palestinian leadership’s own crimes against its people.
      - - -
     “More than half of the Gaza population lives under the poverty line. But, for the Machiavellian Palestinian leadership, the end justifies the means: tens of thousands of Palestinians can and will be sacrificed on the way to killing Jews and destroying Israel.
     “Palestinian leaders don’t care about their own people so why should they care about peace with Jews?
     “The only peace plan the Palestinians would ever accept is one that facilitates their mission of destroying Israel and killing all the Jews living in the region. They will never accept another plan, even if it comes from Prophet Muhammad.
” [Emphasis mine] (Ref. 7)

“Palestinians” are Losing Support Even in the Arab World,
     While the totalitarian regimes in Ramallah and Gaza City continue to destroy the territories over which they rule, destitute the Muslim slaves they control and facilitate the senseless murder of their own people and innocent Jews in Israel, their fellow Islamists and Arab brethren appear to have had enough. “Middle East expert and senior lecturer at Bar Ilan University, . . . Dr. Mordechai Kedar says that the Palestinian Authority is losing support in the Arab world, claiming that former allies are growing ‘sick of the Palestinians,’ as they find support for PA efforts against Israel contrary to their national self-interest.
     “. . . the Arab world is increasingly impressed by ‘Israel’s internal stability, its democracy - which even allows all sorts of thugs to say they don’t want to enlist - and the fact that Israel is comprised 20% of Arabs, and not one of them is fleeing. They even know that the Palestinians, who live under Israeli ‘occupation,’ live much better than all the other Arabs in the Middle East. They understand that Israel is something that doesn’t mesh with what they were taught about it - it is something different.’ [Emphasis mine]
     “. . . the Arab world was growing annoyed with PA efforts against Israel in light of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
     “ ‘What happened was that Trump warned that he would stop funding countries that voted against the US - in Egypt, nobody wants to lose their food just because the Palestinians want Jerusalem. Therefore, in this matter the Palestinians have succeeded in annoying many Arabs in the Middle East, to the extent that people say, ‘Why do we have to be held captive by the Palestinians in the peace process with Israel? If it’s in our interest to have peace with Israel, let’s get on with it, and let the Palestinians break their backs with Israel.’ ”
     “ ‘. . . the Palestinians have lost the Arab world to a large extent, and the whole Palestinian national project stands on brink of collapse, because Trump pulled the PA ‘Jerusalem card’ - which has no substance - from their tower of cards.’ ” (Ref. 8)

Is Reality Finally Settling In?
     What could have been! If only . . .! What is now rapidly slipping away! And still, the tyrants in Ramallah and Gaza City continue to sacrifice the lives of their thralls, while spewing their endless lies, threats, and blasphemies! But cracks are beginning to show in the enforced apparent solidarity of the “Palestinians”. They see no end to their torment, no light at the end of the tunnel.

     “. . . The path of the PA under the leadership of the PLO and Fatah, as well as that of the Hamas terrorist organization has led the Palestinians to a dead end.
      - - -
     “. . . it appears the Palestinian public is beginning to lose its faith in the Palestinian leadership and with it the Palestinian national idea. So, for example, Arab Israelis in eastern Jerusalem choose to be Israeli, whether by carrying Israeli residency cards; taking Israeli, not Palestinian, high school matriculation exams; or getting their degrees at Israeli institutions of higher education that will ensure them a better future. Many Palestinians are likely to act likewise if they are allowed. Palestinian society is beginning to splinter . . . “ (Ref. 9)

     There are many “Palestinians” who are finally realizing that their leadership is actually causing them to lose ground in their struggle for some form of freedom and an opportunity to develop a better life for themselves and their families. “Abbas and his organization are unpopular and . . . ‘powerless, an authority without authority.’ . . . Abbas has watched as Trump has appointed a settlement-supporting ambassador to Israel, fast-tracked the opening of a U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and slashed aid to Palestinian refugees. Traditional allies such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt have prioritized tackling Iran over supporting the Palestinian cause, further isolating the Palestinian Authority’s aging leader.” (Ref. 10) In truth, “Palestinians”, under Abbas’ leadership, have been ever increasingly losing ground in their Quixotic quest to destroy Israel.

     Many “Palestinians” are now waking up to the realization that they have been living “under a system that was supposed to last just five years – an agreement made 25 years ago as the first step towards a self-governing country alongside Israel. Under the Oslo accords, an interim government called the Palestinian Authority (PA) was given limited control over small pockets of land, almost exclusively towns and cities, while Israel maintained control of the remainder.
     “But after the peace process collapsed, Israel dug in by building an extensive network of roads, military bases, settlements and quarries. Meanwhile, the PA clung to power {and never seriously worked toward the achievement of a final peace plan}.
      - - -
     “{Here in 2019,} Peace has never seemed so distant. Almost two-thirds of Palestinians want the PA’s 84-year-old ailing leader, Mahmoud Abbas, to resign, according to polls, and half believe the Authority ‘has become a burden’. [Emphasis mine]
     “Palestinians live in constant bemusement as they hear world leaders and diplomats talk as if the past quarter-century never happened. . .
     “Foreign governments have held tight to the {now obviously unrealistic} two-state ideal despite drastic changes on the ground. Even as they privately acknowledge it as a fading prospect, diplomats still talk of ‘working towards’ two states.
     “When polled, a majority of Palestinians do not see that as a possibility. Roughly 600,000 Israeli settlers now live on occupied land with no intention of leaving. Meanwhile, Israeli politicians . . . talk about annexing vast swathes of the West Bank. ‘Almost nobody believes in the two-state solution anymore,’ . . .
      - - -
     “. . . the Palestinian struggle {has devolved into one} of fighting for ever-tinier chunks of land. . .
      - - -
     “{Some ‘Palestinians’ now realistically advocate} for one secular state in all the land shared by Israelis and Palestinians.
     “The idea {is} gaining momentum, even among Palestinian officials who helped negotiate Oslo. When Donald Trump recognized . . . Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, {a} senior Palestinian politician . . . said the message was clear: ‘The two-state solution is over. Now is the time to transform the struggle for one state with equal rights for everyone living in historic Palestine.’
     “Palestinians already live inside Israel with citizenship. They are families who remained in their towns and villages while others fled or were expelled in wars surrounding Israel’s creation. . .
     “{BUT} . . . for many Israelis, it’s a scary phrase, as it would lead to the end of Zionism in its current form. Under one state, Palestinians might make up approximately half or more of the population. That would mean Israel could cease to be a majority-Jewish country.
     “{Still, the faint spark of reality has been lit for some ‘Palestinians’:} ‘I want everyone in this area to live under the same constitution and same social contract that provides them with freedom, justice and dignity for all.’ ” (Ref. 11)

Have the “Palestinian” Slaves Finally Begun to Revolt?
     Even in the Gaza Strip, there are signs of growing unrest with the oppressive Hama regime that has given the residents of Gaza nothing but poverty, death and destruction. In late March of 2019, “hundreds of Gazans protested the dire conditions, a rare expression of public discontent against the Hamas’ authoritarian government. Hamas responded with a violent crackdown, beating and arresting dozens of demonstrators and drawing public criticism.” (Ref. 12)
     “In recent days, we have been witness to unprecedented demonstrations against the cost of living in the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators, mostly young people, initially took to the streets in the Jabalia refugee camp and Deir al-Balah in the north of the enclave, and later in Khan Younis in the south.
     “This is a ‘popular movement’ whose slogan, ‘We want to live,’ quickly developed into a hashtag on social media.
     “Their goal is simple: to improve the economic situation. On social media, there have been calls and images of graffiti in Gaza blaming Hamas for the dire economic situation. The terrible state of affairs in Gaza is reflected in limited electricity, high unemployment, high living costs, poverty, overcrowding, lack of salaries and a terrorist regime, among other things.
     “Hamas officials tried with all their might to thwart the protests, even resorting to using live fire on demonstrators. Dozens of videos documenting Hamas violence against Gazans were posted online. In one such video, an 11-year-old boy with signs of violence on his back says he was badly beaten by Hamas officials.
     “In another video that went viral, a female resident of the enclave accuses Hamas of shooting at young people. This brave woman wonders aloud if this is the regime promised to them by {a} senior Hamas military leader . . . and the Hamas political bureau chief . . . ‘My husband is employed, as are my four children, while the 20-year-old son of a Hamas commander drives a private jeep and has an apartment,’ she laments.
     “These statements indicate that the residents of Gaza have broken through the barrier of fear that has prevailed in Gaza since Hamas expelled the Palestinian Authority and took control there.
     “This popular movement is now in its infancy, and its demands are largely economic in nature: electricity, lower taxes, jobs for young people, and an end to the arrests and political persecution. Gaza’s bitter residents are well-aware the Hamas leadership is not acting for their benefit when it wastes the money that comes into the enclave on tunnels and military equipment. [Emphasis mine]
      - - -
     “Many believe that this is the spark that will trigger an all-out conflagration in Gaza against the terrorist organization, which rules with an iron fist. Even if Hamas succeeds in suppressing the protests this time around, they will surely face more violence and aggression the next time they break out.
      - - -
     “Hamas’s usual tactic in such a situation is to incite the population against Israel in order to direct the fire at {Israel}, rather than {against Hamas}. It is therefore likely that Hamas will try to bring about a deterioration in the situation on the border in order to deflect attention towards the border.
     “. . . Gaza is now a powder keg, and no one knows exactly when things will explode. . .” (Ref. 13)

What the “Palestinian” Leaders Fear About Peace
     Besides fearing their loss of power, the “Palestinian” dictators “appear worried that, should they make peace with the ‘Zionist entity,’ their people might be exposed to democratic values and freedom of expression. They seem concerned that Arabs and Muslims wake up one morning and start demanding free and democratic elections like the ones held every few years in Israel.
     “The anti-peace camp . . . appears not to want its people exposed to advanced Israeli technology, including medical care. This camp seems to want its people to continue living in misery and under dictatorships, so that it is easier to recruit people to jihad against Israel and the West. Also, if people are lifted from poverty and misery, and their living conditions are improved so they begin to enjoy the fruits of modern civilization, there is a chance that Arabs and Muslims will move away from Islam and even start endorsing the inadmissible values of the West.
     “{They} seem not to care about lowering the high rate of unemployment among Arabs and Muslims, improving the living conditions of its people or offering young Arabs and Muslims hope for a better future. They seem instead to want their people to continue living in misery so that their anger, again, can be directed more easily towards Israel and the West.” (Ref. 14)

Death to All Jews and Israel – Nothing Else Matters
     The inescapable fact that the “Palestinian” leaderships in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are not interested in any form of peace settlement with Israel has become increasingly obvious, as has the truth that they never have wanted any peace with Israel. The “Palestinian” dictatorships in Judea, Samaria and Gaza have only been interested in achieving and maintaining their despotic rule over the “Palestinian” pawns under their control along with the holy grail of seeing the destruction of the State of Israel.

What if . . . ?
     If only the “Palestinians” had some spec of rationality. Think where they could be now.

     GAZA: Peace and cooperation with Israel could have easily made the Gaza Strip into the Gaza Riviera, and all of it could have been “Palestinian”! There could have been a fabulous strip of hotels and casinos right by a sparkling ocean with thousands of proud Palestinians working with smiles on their faces to serve the hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the world who were coming to their little strip of ocean paradise.
     A short distance inland there could have been a bustling economy, where the highest quality produce was grown and exported; where entrepreneurs built software companies, banks and advertising agencies; where a university attracted students from around the world; where local culture and the arts thrived; and where you could take the Orient Express train to Beirut, Cairo and, yes, even Tel Aviv. All this could have easily been, if only . . .
     The “Palestinians” had this all in the palm of their hands. Think back to that summer of 2005, the year of the Gaza disengagement, when Israel finally said: OK, you don't want us here, we're leaving — take it, it's all yours. Oh, and we'll even throw in our state-of-the-art farms and greenhouses, in case you want to continue growing some of the finest produce in the world. What if . . . ?
     Is there any doubt that had the “Palestinians” chosen the "Riviera" option, Israel would have welcomed it? That Israel would have responded to this show of good faith and optimism with corresponding gestures of cooperation and good will? That there would have been no need for "suffocating closures"? That, in fact, Israelis, known for their love of life and travel, would have been the first tourists to sample the delightful pleasures of this new Gaza as Israelis did after returning the Sinai to Egypt? If only . . .
     Instead of choosing the Riviera option — the option of building for the future — the “Palestinian” leadership chose the option of killing and dying for the past. They have continued to do so for the past fourteen blood-soaked years.

     Instead “Carpe Diem” - of seizing the moment - and showing Israel and the world what they could do with the land that they love, they continue to show the world that they hate the Jews and Israel more than they love the land on which they live.
     Instead of using the hundreds of millions the world showered on them to build housing, infrastructure and industry, they built bomb factories and hundreds of tunnels to smuggle rockets they could fire into Israeli towns.
     Instead of using their Jewish neighbors as allies and trading partners, they have provoked Israel into a destructive war in the hope that the world would view them as poor victims of Jewish aggression so that support for Jews and the Zionist state would be eroded.
     But, what if . . . ? What could the “Palestinians” have done with their precious land after Israel left Gaza fourteen years ago? An hour's drive north up the coast from Gaza, you can see an image that was also once nothing but a dream, and that was built without any help from the United Nations or the international community. It's an image of a thriving little Riviera called Tel Aviv, and for our “Palestinian” neighbors, it's a poignant and concrete reminder of what might have been if only . . . [15]

The More They Procrastinate, the More They will Lose!
     Fatah and Hamas and the PA have turned a blind eye to the fact that they are losing on all fronts. They are totally blinded by their hatred of Jews and Israel. In their irrational hatred and rage, they are now focused on martyring their own people and, as they have been doing for the past seven decades, crying victimhood to their brother Arabs and the rest of the world. Their fellow Arabs and all thinking people are tired of their bold-faced lies, their breast-beating and their self-martyrdom. These “Palestinian” despots have now fallen into the dust-bin of historical irrelevance and they are too hatred-consumed to realize this fact. Meanwhile, the “Palestinian” gun fodder under the sway of these tyrants continues to pay the price in lives, territory, economics and every other aspect of the life they could have had with an early accommodation with the Jewish State. Complicit in this tragedy are the nations and individuals who have allowed this set of circumstances to fester since 1948.

     As has been said before: “The Palestinians have an old and nasty habit of placing themselves on the wrong side of history . . . Every time the Palestinians make the wrong choice, they end up paying a heavy price. Yet, they do not seem to learn from their mistakes.” (Ref. 16) Are they going to continue this historical precedence and continue committing national suicide or are the “Palestinian” people in Judea, Samaria and Gaza – not the tyrants currently in power there - going to change the course of “Palestinian” history?

     The growth of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria is happening at an increased rate in recent months. The United States now recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and is moving it embassy there. Other countries around the world are following suit. The U.S. has now recognized the obvious fact that the Golan Heights are an integral part of Israel. International funds being supplied to the Abbas government are drying up as countries refuse to support the ongoing payments to terrorists and their families by the Abbas dictatorship. “Palestinians” should take note of the diminishing support of Arab nations for their stale and now-tiresome cause. Arab countries are dropping their support of Fatah and Hamas. How much longer will the “Palestinians” continue on their path of national suicide?
