Times of Israel – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday that the Palestinians would never recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and accused Israel of establishing an apartheid government.

The Palestinian leader was speaking in Cairo at an emergency session of the Arab League with foreign ministers from around the Arab world. His remarks came following a week of intense debate among Israeli politicians about a Knesset bill which would enshrine Israel’s status as a Jewish state in law.

  • We are at war. Many stubbornly and foolishly don’t put the pieces together and refuse to identify the evil doers as evil. We are disgracefully politically correct.

    There are no Luftwaffe overhead or Panzer divisions on our borders. But make no mistake; we are under attack — our values, our tolerance, our freedom, our virtue, our land. Did anyone imagine in the 1920s what Europe would look like in the 1940s?

    We dare not wallow in complacency, in a misguided tolerance and naive sense of security. We must not be lulled into inaction for fear of offending the offenders. Radical Islam is the scourge of the world and this must be cried out from every synagogue. ISIS must be destroyed. Iran is our enemy. They are the new Nazis. These murderers, these barbarians are radical Islamists.

    This is all out war. Show no mercy on them. They must be utterly destroyed. They want to murder Jews and we must destroy them first. Why are people afraid to state this? Most of the world hates us Jews for no reason. We should stop appeasing the world and protect ourselves and Israel. Yes we have a few countries such as the United States of America to turn to and we have some friends from different religions. Yet another Holocaust is coming if we Jews remain silent and a third intifada has begun.

    I am a son of Holocaust survivors. Never again. Never forget. Never forgive. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    . Where is our President Obama as our foreign policy has turned into a complete disaster.

      You hit the nail on the head.We are sickened in the USA by how the Jews are being treated here and abroad. How evil, unjust and ruthless can people be.

    We could save a lot of pain if Israel’s present eccentric Government abandoned the Zionism dominated move towards exstablishing the kind of state officially that would be designated an apartheid state in much of the rest of the world. This is a sleeping dog best left in slumber.

    I cannot see any reason why every state should not join the International Criminal Court, or that any population in a distinct area should be denied representation at the United Nations. It is Israel itself which defines the Arab population there as “distinct”

    Since Israel seems intent on Settling and Occupying territory that was not awarded by the 1947 Partition resolution, it seems reasonable to define what it is occupying as a seperate nation – or part thereof. To a high degree it is the Occupation and Settlement policy, and the threat of annexation into a culturally differentiated state, that actually defines the West Bank as a State in its own right

    Zionism and a zionist dominated Government have lost the plot. The sooner the Coalition is replaced with a return to social sanity and practicl politics – and indeed achievable aims – the better.

    • Hillel

      The Arabs rejected the 1947 partition resolution and therefore reverts to the earlier League of Nations resolutions of the 1920’s wherein the Jews get everything west of the Jordan river and the arabs east. Since the Jordanians are 80%+ Palestinian Arab then they have theirs. The Jews are entitled to take theirs! They fought for it and won.
      Otherwise, if you’re so magnanimous then give back America to the indigenous peoples, likewise return sudetanland to the Germans or parts of Poland to Ukrain and at least they are indigenous. The Arabs are ‘arabs’ who conquered by the sword in the name of Islam. The indigenous populations of the time didn’t like but wore it for centuries now these bastards don’t like it and weak willed western Jew haters are pandering to their will. It is time the Jews recognise who are their friends, practically none and should not appease anyone but try and defend our right to exist on the face of this god forsaken rock floating through endless space for some one else’s cruel entertainment.

  • The Mufti of Jerusalem sided with Hitler and created his own SS division. The Arab world seeks peace with Israel , a large piece. No one asked them to attack Israel in 1948. They lost the war. If it was up to them they would have killed all the Jews. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
