to be "the Singapore of the Middle East," or to more terrorism and war? (illustr.)"The Offer that Turns the Gaza Strip into Singapore" - by Bassam Tawil

- Last week, Hamas received an offer that no sane entity would turn down. The offer did not come from Hamas's allies in Iran and the Islamic world. The offer, to turn the impoverished Gaza Strip into "the Singapore of the Middle East," came from Israel.

- "The Gazans must understand that Israel, which withdrew from the Gaza Strip to the last millimeter, is not the source of their suffering -- it is the Hamas leadership, which doesn't take their needs into consideration... The moment Hamas gives up its tunnels and rockets, we'll be the first to invest." — Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

- Hamas does not want a new "Singapore" in the Middle East. Hamas wants Israel to disappear from the face of the earth. The welfare of the Palestinians living under its rule is the last thing on the mind of Hamas. The dispute is not about improving the living conditions of Palestinians, as far as Hamas is concerned. Instead, it is about the very existence of Israel.

- Hamas deserves credit for one thing: its honesty concerning its intentions to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible. Hamas does not want 40,000 new jobs for the unemployed poor Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. It would rather see these unemployed Palestinians join its ranks and become soldiers in the jihad to replace Israel with an Islamic empire. ...

Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur [screenshot YouTube]Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur, tijdens haar eerste persconferentie na de maandelijkse vergadering van de Veiligheidsraad van de Verenigde Naties.:

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Feb. 16, 2017:

"I just put out to the members of the Seucrity Council to help me understand: When we have so much going on in the world, why is it that every single month we're going to sit down and have a hearing where all they do is obsess over Israel?"

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians.
No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades. ...

Yair Lapid [Flash 90]"Lapid: Stop supporting the extreme left" 
Yair Lapid sends scathing letter to Belgian ambassador after Belgian PM meets with Breaking the Silence and B'tselem.

Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid expressed surprised at Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel's meetings with leading figures in radical left anti-Zionist NGOs Breaking the Silence and B'tselem during Michel's recent visit to Israel.

In a letter to the Belgian ambassador, Lapid wrote, "My son serves in the army, he's in a tank unit. He's a good kid with strong morals - just like his friends and commanders. During the past few years, they've spent a good deal of time saving injured Syria children and bringing them to Israeli hospitals. They are patriots and they are law-abiding."

Lapid also called on the Belgian ambassador to stop Belgium's support for organizations which malign IDF soldiers. ...

Robert Badinter [Unesco-6dec2016]UNESCO 23 Janvier 2017 - "Robert Badinter sur l'antisémitisme : tirer les enseignements de l'histoire"

En retraçant l'histoire de l'antisémitisme du 4e siècle à nos jours, Robert Badinter en tire un enseignement riche d'avertissement et de sens. Il est tout à fait remarquable et difficilement compréhensible, dit-il, que le peuple le plus cultivé d'Europe avant l'avènement d'Hitler soit précisément celui qui a conduit à l'encontre des juifs la plus cruelle histoire qu'ils aient connue dans ce qui est constamment tragédie.

Pour marquer la Journée de commémoration de l'Holocauste, 27 janvier 2017, Grand angle se fait l'écho de son discours prononcé lors de l'inauguration de la Table ronde sur la prévention de l'antisémitisme, organisé par l'UNESCO le 6 décembre 2016.

"L'antisémitisme n'est pas un phénomène contemporain. C'est un mal multiséculaire. Depuis la prise de Jérusalem par Titus en 70, depuis la dispersion des juifs notamment à travers tout le bassin méditerranéen, vendus comme esclaves en si grand nombre que les cours du marché (si l'on utilisait un terme économique moderne) s'étaient effondrés dans l'Empire romain, la condition des juifs à travers deux millénaires, et notamment en Europe, n'a jamais cessé d'être exclusion, souffrance, persécution.
De l'antisémitisme, depuis cette lointaine époque romaine, je dirais qu'on connaît quatre formes, qui parfois se confondent. ...

pro-palestijnse betoging 12 07 2014_FRBEPro-Palestijnse manifestanten vervolgd voor aanzetten tot jodenhaat op Sint-Jansplein - GVA - 25/1/2017

Drie mannen worden voor de Antwerpse strafrechter vervolgd voor het aanzetten tot haat tijdens een pro-Palestijnse manifestatie in Antwerpen. Het gaat om twee organisatoren en een Palestijnse deelnemer. Die laatste zou een anti-joodse leuze gescandeerd hebben.
De manifestatie vond plaats op het Sint-Jansplein op 12 juli 2014, kort na de start van een militaire operatie in de Gazastrook in Israël. Een vijfhonderdtal deelnemers riep leuzen als 'Free Palestine' en zwaaide met Palestijnse vlaggen. De manifestatie verliep rumoerig, maar eindigde volgens de politie zonder incidenten.

Het Forum der Joodse Organisaties diende twee dagen later klacht in, nadat het een filmpje van de manifestatie onder ogen had gekregen. Daarop was te horen hoe er vanuit het publiek een anti-joodse leuze in het Arabisch gescandeerd werd. Beklaagde Suhail A., zelf afkomstig uit de Gazastrook, begon de leuze mee te roepen vanop het podium. De leuze verwees naar de verdrijving van de joden uit de stad Khaybar in 629 en is volgens het Forum der Joodse Organisaties een oproep tot genocide van de joden. ...

Franse Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Jean-Marc Ayrault Open brief van David Harris, CEO van AJC aan de Franse Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Jean-Marc Ayrault n.a.v. het door Frankrijk georganiseerde Vredesoverleg gepland op 15 januari e.k. te Parijs - Gepubliceerd op 09/01/2017 in Huffington Post:

"Dear French Foreign Minister Ayrault

I take the liberty of writing this open letter in the wake of the latest Palestinian terror attack, which killed four young Israelis and wounded many others in an assault eerily similar to the one in Nice in July, and days ahead of the "Middle East peace conference" in Paris you will be hosting.

I do so with respect, coming from a Francophone home and with deep roots in France and French culture.

I do so representing an organization, AJC, that has engaged with France at the highest levels for decades, and that, even when we have disagreed vigorously, has rejected those in the Jewish community who have called for boycotts and spread "fake news" about the situation in your country.

And I do so, if I may say, no less eager than you to find a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ideally based on a two-state agreement. ...
