Terror,terror - Två döda i terrorattack

Två soldater dödades och två personer skadades i en terrorattack i Givat Asaf, bara två kilometer från Ofra där söndagens terrorattack skedde. En palestinsk man steg ut ut en bil, sköt mot mänskorna vid en hållplats och flydde därefter.

Hamas har som vanligt prisat attacken som en hjältemodig gärning och Fatah har kallat på palestinierna för att eskalera situationen och fira martyrerna (terroristerna).

I gamla stan i Jerusalem knivhögg en palestinier idag två gränspoliser som lyckades skjuta angriparen.

Israel lyckades i dag få tag på terroristen Saleh Omar Barghouti som stod bakom attacken i Ofra i söndags och Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alwa som utförde en terrorattack i oktober och dödade två personer. Båda gjorde motstånd och försökte fly men de sköts av de israeliska soldaterna som skulle gripa dem.
 Na’alwa  sägs ha planerat en ny terrorattack.

Stater som erkänner Jerusalem som Israels huvudstad hotas av muslimska och arabiska stater

Uppdatering: Australien backade och meddelade på onsdagen att det är för tidigt att göra några beslut.
AUSTRALIA PM FLIP FLOPS ON JERUSALEM EMBASSY, CALLS CONVERSATION PREMATURE

Det rapporteras att Australien på onsdag kommer att erkänna Jerusalem som Israels huvudstad, men ambassaden kommer ännu inte att flyttas till staden.
Det är oklart om det uttryckligen är västra Jerusalem som erkänns eller hur erkännandet kommer att formuleras.
De muslimska staterna motsätter erkännandet och palestinska ledare kräver motåtgärder även om erkännandet bara skulle gälla västra Jerusalem.

Mänskorättsgrupper med politisk agenda

Två artiklar som behandlar tre organisationer som påstår sig bevaka mänskliga rättigheter men egentligen har en politisk agenda. (Human Right Watch, Amnesty International och B'Tselem)

#HumanRightsHypocrisy (JNS)
International Human Rights Day is marked on Dec. 10, with special attention made to honoring the 70-year anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Following and analyzing the Twitter accounts of the two largest human-rights non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Amnesty International, lead to some uncomfortable conclusions regarding the groups’ supposed “promotion of universal human rights.” Sadly, these human-rights groups appear to be utilizing social media to promote just a small portion of the world’s human rights abuses, and not even actual war crimes.

...For instance, on Nov. 12-13, Hamas and other terror groups targeted Israeli civilians with more than 450 rockets, amounting to nearly 500 war crimes. Yet HRW, the world’s “leading human-rights group” and its director, Ken Roth, did not take notice.

However, when it came to Palestinian riots on the Gaza border, known as the “March of Return,” conducted with the sole purpose of breaking through the border and entering Israel, HRW and Roth made this a social-media priority. At the height of the riots, on May 13-16, approximately 40 percent of Ken Roth’s tweets focused on condemning Israel for its response to the violent riots.

... While Amnesty was campaigning on behalf of this one young girl involved in violent crimes, 110 Nigerian girls were kidnapped to be sold as sex slaves. Neither Amnesty International nor HRW wrote even one tweet, article or Facebook post about the kidnapped girls. Yet Ahed Tamimi’s arrest warranted 11 posts on social media from the two organizations.


Similarly, in April, during the week that Tamimi was sentenced to eight months in prison for her crimes, the Assad regime launched chemical-weapons attacks on its citizens in Syria. Shockingly, yet consistently, Amnesty International had four times as many tweets on Ahed Tamimi as they did on the brutal Syria chemical-weapons attacks.

B’Tselem’s lack of human rights priorities (TOI)
The anti-occupation organization ignores the recruitment and use of child soldiers by Palestinian armed groups.

On December 10, 2018, the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the French government will award the Israeli organization B’Tselem with the “Human Rights Award of the French Republic.” Whereas the Declaration celebrates “dignity” and “equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family,” B’Tselem hijacks the language of these noble ideals in order to promote a narrow political, ideological agenda. The French government’s selection of its prize recipient is similarly at odds with these principles.

... Take, for example, B’Tselem’s November 27 “investigation” into four cases of “Palestinian minors killed by Israeli troops at Gaza protests.” The group claims that Israel’s “open-fire policy in the area of the Gaza fence” is responsible for the deaths of children in Gaza. However, through a close reading of the report and with a basic understanding of international law, it is apparent that B’Tselem is ignoring the recruitment and use of child soldiers by Palestinian armed groups and instead condemning Israel’s international right to defend its border.

Antisemitismen stort problem i Europa

En stor undersökning utförd av FRA (European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights)  visar att väldigt många judar känner sig hotade i Europa.
- 95 % säger att antisemitismen har ökat de senaste fem åren.
- 30 % säger att de utsatts för trakasserier under det senaste året.
Omkring hälften av judarna i flera länder säger att de är rädda att bli fysiskt attackerade under det kommande året.
Trakasserierna kommer från extrema muslimer och från både den politiska vänstern och högern.

Unprecedented EU poll finds 90% of European Jews feel anti-Semitism increasing (TOI)
Anti-Semitism ‘disturbingly normalized,’ says EU rights chief, after massive survey of 12 EU states finds 85% of Jews rate it the biggest social problem in their countries

Experiences and perceptions of antisemitism - Second survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews in the EU (FRA)
This report outlines the main findings of FRA’s second survey on Jewish people’s experiences with hate crime, discrimination and antisemitism in the European Union – the biggest survey of Jewish people ever conducted worldwide. Covering 12 EU Member States, the survey reached almost 16,500 individuals who identify as being Jewish. It follows up on the agency’s first survey, conducted in seven countries in 2012.

The findings make for a sobering read. They underscore that antisemitism remains pervasive across the EU – and has, in many ways, become disturbingly normalised. The important information provided herein can support policymakers across the EU in stepping up their efforts to ensure the safety and dignity of all Jewish people living in the EU.

Terroristernas ekonomiska framtid säkrad

 Här under en artikel som visar hur mycket den palestinska myndigheten betalar i lön och understöd till terrorister som fängslats av Israel.

- 44% av det ekonomiska understödet från utlandet går till terroristernas löner.

Terrorister gläds över FN-omröstningen


Fatah och Hamas gläds över att FN:s generalförsamling inte antog en resolution som fördömde raketbeskjutningen mot civilbefolkningen i Israel. Samtidigt lovar båda grupperna att våldet kommer att fortsätta.

HAMAS: FAILURE OF U.S. RESOLUTION WAS A 'SLAP IN THE FACE OF AMERICA' (Jerusalem Post)
Hamas, Fatah and other Palestinian factions said that the failure of the UN to support the resolution was a “slap in the face of America” and a “victory for the Palestinian resistance.”

Hamas:The failure of the US resolution, he added, is a “victory for the Palestinian resistance in spite of American bullying.” The Hamas official thanked the countries that opposed the US resolution and “prevented the US administration and Israel from criminalizing the Palestinian resistance.” 


Addressing the countries that voted in favor of the anti-Hamas resolution, he said: “Shame on you for supporting the executioner against the victim.”

HAMAS: ARMED STRUGGLE AGAINST ISRAEL WILL CONTINUE
Hamas said on Saturday that the “armed struggle” against Israel will continue because it’s a “strategic option to safeguard the Palestinian cause and restore Palestinian national rights.”

In a statement on the occasion of the 31st anniversary of the eruption of the First Intifada, Hamas said that “resistance was a legitimate right guaranteed by international laws and conventions.”

In a statement marking the 31st anniversary of the First Intifada, Fatah, which did not specify the nature of the struggle it’s calling for, said that the Palestinians will pursue their struggle with “greater determination until the right of return for refugees is achieved, as well as the right to self-determination and the establishment of an “independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.”

According to Fatah, the Palestinians have been fighting against the “Zionist project and its hazards for more than 100 years.”
