Dershowitz to 'Post': Rabbis should not protest Israel at the UN - opinion

Many academic critics of the breadth of judicial review in Israel argue that it is the unelected, somewhat elitist, judiciary that compromises pure democracy. I tend to disagree. I generally support the current system, though would favor some modifications if I were an Israeli voter. I would not favor the broad overhaul advocated by the current government. But the reality is that even if all the proposed reforms were enacted — and I fervently hope and believe they will not be — Israel would then resemble the Netherlands, Great Britain, and New Zealand more than Hungary and Poland.

Uttalanden från Israel fiender

 Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas: Hitler Fought The European Jews Because Of Their Usury, Money Dealings; It Was Not About Antisemitism; Jews From Arab Countries Did Not Want To Emigrate, But Were Forced To Do So By Israel (MEMRI)

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas discussed antisemitism in a speech delivered at the 11th session of Fatah's Revolutionary Council, on August 24, 2023. He said that the "truth" is that European Jews are not Semites, they are the descendants of Khazars, and therefore their persecution has nothing to do with antisemitism. Abbas added that Karl Marx confirmed that this is so. He continued to say that Hitler and the Europeans did not kill the Jews "because they were Jews," but rather they fought the Jews because of "their social role, and not their religion." Abbas explained that Hitler "fought" the Jews because they dealt with usury and money, not because of antisemitism.

He added that the eastern Jews were indeed Semites, because they had originated from the Arabian Peninsula and then traveled to Andalusia. Later in his speech, Abbas claimed that Ben Gurion had not wanted Jews from Arab countries to immigrate to Israel, but was forced to accept them upon Churchill's urging, because there were no more Jews left in Europe. He said that Ben Gurion carried out attacks on Jewish institutions in Arab countries in order to persuade them to emigrate. Abbas stated: "the Jews did not want to emigrate but were forced to do so by means of pressure, coercion, and murder."

Abbas discussed the Balfour Declaration, saying that the U.S. was a partner to it and that Israel was invented by "Britain and America – not just Britain." He added that he is "saying this so that we know who we should accuse of being our enemy."

Editor-In-Chief Of Palestinian Authority Daily Mahmoud Abu Al-Haija Calls For Legal Action Against Intellectuals Who Criticized Abbas' Holocaust Comments: They Prefer The Israeli Narrative Over The Palestinian One (MEMRI)

Mahmoud Abu Al-Haija, the Editor-in-Chief of the Palestinian Authority's Al-Hayat Al-Jadida daily, said in a September 12, 2023, show on Awda TV (Palestinian Authority) that legal action should be taken against the "self-proclaimed" intellectuals who have condemned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's recent remarks about the Holocaust. He accused these people of having "chosen the Israeli narrative over the Palestinian narrative," and he added that it was clear that Abbas opposed the evil of the Holocaust.

Palestinian Authority Media Present Slain Terrorists As Innocent Children Murdered In Cold Blood (MEMRI)

In reporting about young Palestinians who were involved in terror activity against Israel and were killed by the Israeli security forces, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its media – and following them also media in the world and in Israel[1] –  often presents them as innocent children or youths who were murdered or executed in cold blood. The Palestinian media obscures the fact that they were members of terror organizations like the Lion's Den, Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) or even Fatah's own military wing, and deliberately omits any mention of the circumstances in which they were killed, namely, while carrying out armed operations against Israelis. 

Saleh Al-'Arouri, Deputy-Head Of Hamas' Political Bureau: Developing The Resistance In The West Bank, Including Rocket Capabilities, Is A Supreme Goal; We Must Take Advantage Of The Global Developments To Escalate The Confrontation With Israel (MEMRI)

In a September 6, 2023 interview with the Al-Jazeera website, Saleh Al-'Arouri, deputy-head of Hamas' political bureau, spoke at length about the recent escalation in the terror attacks and armed struggle waged against Israel in the West Bank by Hamas and the other terror organizations. Noting that the armed resistance in the West Bank has "reached a new level," he stated that the supreme goal of the resistance is to continue developing, drawing inspiration from the model of the Gazan resistance, until it achieves effective rocket capabilities in the West Bank. He added that Hamas and the other armed factions "are highly coordinated" and fight together on the ground.[1]

Emphasizing that all the Palestinian arenas are united against Israel, Al-'Arouri said that the West Bank is now the spearhead of the resistance. He added that the Islamic countries, too, should take an active part in a multi-front confrontation with the enemy, and warned that the policies of the Israeli government  are likely to cause the outbreak of a broad and dangerous war "within two or three years."

Al-'Arouri also and called on the Palestinians to take advantage of the international developments, including America's preoccupation with the war in Ukraine and its desire to maintain calm in other arenas, in order to escalate the confrontation with Israel. "It behooves us to take this opportunity to tangibly and significantly escalate our resistance, so that it threatens the calm and stability [the U.S.] wants,"  he said, and added: "This is an opportunity we definitely must not miss."    

Palestinian Terror Organizations Incite On Social Media: The Time Has Come To Kill The Jews (MEMRI)

Amid a wave of terror attacks against Israelis, the Palestinian terror organizations – Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (the military wing of Fatah, the ruling party in the Palestinian Authority) – have been waging an intensive incitement campaign on social media, praising the terrorists and calling for further attacks.[1] This incitement takes the form of messages, videos and graphics on social media calling to kill the Jews by every means, such as stabbing, car-ramming, shooting and bombing. Some of the posts are accompanied by Quranic verses about fighting the infidels. 

Islamic Scholar Muhammad Al-Aklouk Brandishes Rifle And Axe, Urges West Bank Palestinians To Carry Out Shooting And Stabbing Attacks Against Israelis: It Is Time For Your Rifles To Play Their Tunes, Unleash Great Killing And Bloodshed Upon Them (MEMRI)

On September 6, 2023, Gaza Islamic scholar Sheikh Muhammad Bin Maher Al-Aklouk posted a video to his YouTube and Telegram channels of a speech he delivered at an event in Khan Yunis, Gaza. During his speech, Sheikh Al-Aklouk brandished a loaded M-16-style rifle and said that it is time for these rifles to be used and for bursts of gunfire to be heard in the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba. He also called on young Palestinians in the West Bank to carry out stabbing attacks using knives, axes, and cleavers. In addition, he called on the "lions" of the West Bank to "avenge" the honor of the Palestinian women, who reportedly were strip-searched in Hebron, by shooting female Israeli soldiers in the head.
