Een Palestijnse meisjesschool die ons land in 2013 mee hielp opbouwen, is inmiddels vernoemd naar terroriste Dalal Mughrabi. 'Ontoelaatbaar', zeggen ministers Reynders en De Croo.

Al jaren is ons land een belangrijke donor voor de Palestijnse Autoriteit. Vooral op het vlak van scholenbouw, opleidingen en e-learning. Alleen al tussen 2012 en 2015 trok de Belgische overheid goed 33 miljoen euro uit om de Palestijnse onderwijssector te ondersteunen, zo staat te lezen in een samenwerkingsakkoord.

Vooral de opleiding van meisjes krijgt aandacht, om de gelijkheid tussen mannen en vrouwen te bevorderen. Dat leidde in 2013 tot de bouw van een gloednieuwe meisjesschool in Beit Awwa, op de Westelijke Jordaanoever. Bij de officiële inhuldiging werd nog een groot plakkaat onthuld, waarop de Belgen plechtig bedankt worden voor hun steun aan de Beit Awwa Basic Girls School. ...

"The Forgotten Palestinians" - by Khaled Abu Toameh

Ayman Qawasmeh and Issa Amro would have been better off being arrested by Israeli authorities. Had that happened, their stories would have made it to the pages of major Western newspapers. CNN or NBC might have dedicated an entire program to their ordeal. Without a way for the Western media outlets to implicate Israel, however, their tale remains buried -- along with their freedom.

The group also points out that it has documented some 472 cases of deaths consequent to torture in Syrian detention centers and prisons over the past few years.

Would anyone like to know about the true apartheid laws applied to Palestinians in different Arab countries? The information is readily available: all that needs to happen is for the Western media and the rest of the international community to reconsider their obsession with Israel and to start paying attention to the real Palestinian victims -- those living in the Arab countries. ...

Voor het eerst heeft de Nederlandse oud-premier Dries van Agt ingestemd met een langdurig tv- debat met Hans Knoop over het Israelisch-Palestijns conflict en gaat hij uitvoerig in op de beschuldiging dat hij antisemiet zou zijn.

Van Agt en Hans Knoop kennen elkaar meer dan vier decennia en kwamen met name tijdens de Zaak Menten als kemphanen tegenover elkaar te staan.

Dries van Agt was toentertijd minister van justitie.

In journalistieke kringen wordt met ongewoon grote belangstelling naar het gesprek uitgekeken dat sinds gisteren 17 september online staat op Café Weltschmerz https://www.cafeweltschmerz.nl/de-kwestie-israel-en-de-palestijnse-gebieden-in-90-min-dries-van-agt-en-hans-knoop/

"UN Chief Guterres, the Media and Palestinian Fake News" - by Bassam Tawil - Gatestone Institute

- One of the mothers who attended the meeting with the UN chief was Latifa Abu Hmaid. Four of her sons, Nasser, Sharif, Nasr and Mohammed are serving multiple life sentences for their role in terrorism. The Palestinian Authority (PA) chose the mother of these terrorists because they are all members of President Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah faction, which is regularly described by Western media outlets as a moderate and pragmatic Palestinian party that believes in the two-state solution and peace with Israel.

- The minimum the UN chief and his aides could have done is to call out the PA leadership and condemn it for the ambush and the fabricated report from the official Palestinian news agency. Had Israel been involved in a similar incident, we would have witnessed a diplomatic crisis, prompted by the UN secretary general and his spokesmen as well as the international media. Palestinians, as usual, are given a pass.

- The lie about "Jewish extremists" setting fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque has become so widespread and accepted that even senior Muslim scholars such as Abbas's Grand Mufti, Sheikh Mohamed Hussein, has also been spreading the blood libel. He and most Palestinians continue to describe the Australian Christian arsonist as a "Jewish extremist."

- According to the Palestinian propaganda machine, nearly without exception, the terrorists were on their way to buy bread for their mothers or visit their grandmothers. These were innocent victims, the story goes, arrested or shot by Israel for no reason. Then there are the lies about Israelis "planting" knives near the bodies of terrorists who stab or try to murder Jews. Western journalists and others accept these lies as facts. ...

Nathan Weinstock est un avocat, criminologue et historien belge né à Anvers en 1939. Après une scolarité juive orthodoxe il se tourne vers le trotskisme, devient en 1967 antisioniste et pro-palestinien, et se répand en harangues devant des auditoires nourris aux émissions de Radio-Le Caire, « savourant avec délices l'annonce que les vaillantes armées arabes sont sur le point de jeter les Juifs à la mer ». D'une violence verbale extrême, Weinstock appelle au démantèlement d'Israël en posant qu'on ne peut être à la fois sioniste et socialiste.

Vers les années 1990 il change de cap en prenant conscience du fait que la cause palestinienne n'est qu'un avatar de l'antisémitisme, et qu'elle est nourrie par la haine des Juifs plutôt que par une vision politique. Weinstock fait alors un virage à cent quatre-vingt degrés et se met à soutenir Israël en déconstruisant avec lucidité et courage son parcours d'intellectuel fourvoyé dans le dédale du marxisme, considérant ses écrits antérieurs comme « bourrés de conclusions simplistes et abusives ». ...

"What Europe can learn from Israel in its war against vehicle attacks and lone wolf terror"

The van terror attack in Barcelona follows a similar wave of car rammings in Nice, London, Paris, Berlin, and Stockholm. By Colonel Richard Kemp, Arsen Ostrovsky

Shortly after the horrific terror attack in Barcelona last week, which claimed the lives of 14 people, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said terrorism is Europe's main problem "right now".

Similarly, it was not until the London Bridge car ramming in June this year that killed 8 people, that UK Prime Minister Theresa May said "enough is enough". But therein lies the problem.

Jihadists have been waging terror in Europe for years now and 'enough' was enough after the first attack. But European leaders have largely been in denial, only now beginning to concede there is a problem, and even still, many refusing to identify and confront the radical Islam at the root of this war. ...
