Ilhan Omar needs to rethink her flawed position on Palestine

Ilhan Omar needs to rethink her flawed position on PalestineFor far too long political debate has been reduced to name-calling and identity labelling with facts and reasoned arguments taking second place—consigning civilised discourse and the exchange of ideas and opinions into the trash bin.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has taken a positive step in reversing this burgeoning practice of personal denigration and arbitrary dismissal of opinions of those with whom one doesn’t agree—in setting out her opinion on resolving the Arab-Jewish conflict in an op-ed article in the Washington Post on 17 March.


Failure to prosecute Hillary Clinton will be 2020 election issue

Mar 18, 2019 — David Singer

Failure to prosecute Hillary Clinton will be 2020 election issueThe failure of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice to prosecute former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for alleged breaches of 18 U.S. Code § 793. Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information (the Code) is an issue that will come to the fore in the 2020 elections.

Clinton’s escape from prosecution during the height of the 2016 election campaign has gained a new head of steam following release of the transcript of evidence given to the Committee on the Judiciary, US House of Representatives, in July 2018, by former senior FBI Lawyer Lisa Page.


Netanyahu reaffirms that Israel is the Jewish State

Netanyahu reaffirms that Israel is the Jewish StateIt is amazing that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still needs to reaffirm to Israelis that Israel is the Jewish State.

Yet Netanyahu was required to do just that after fashion model, actress and TV presenter Rotem Sela instagrammed:


Democrats go fishing whilst their Trump hatred destroys them

Democrats go fishing whilst their Trump hatred destroys themThe Democrats seem hell bent on their own destruction as the Democrat-dominated US House Committee on The Judiciary (Judiciary Committee) sets out on a fishing expedition casting its nets far and wide among 81 people and organisations seeking evidence to destroy President Trump.

The Judiciary Committee has brazenly breached the privacy of its targets by publishing letters and documents being sought from each of them.

Each letter pompously and misleadingly declares:


Netanyahu could still be Israel’s next Prime Minister

Mar 6, 2019 — David Singer

Netanyahu could still be Israel's next Prime MinisterThe cards have certainly been stacked against Benjamin Netanyahu being Israel’s next Prime Minister after three recent major developments—but he is by no means down and out.

Those developments are:

  1. Israeli Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit’s decision to pursue Netanyahu for alleged criminal offences—explained by Elena Chachko as follows:

Trump puts socialism on trial for 2020 elections

Mar 4, 2019 — David Singer

Trump puts socialism on trial for 2020 electionsPresident Trump has given notice that the lurch to socialism by the Democrats will be a key issue on which the Republicans will contest the 2020 elections.

Trump flagged his intentions during his State of the Union address on February 5 - when addressing the deteriorating situation in Venezuela:

“We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom—and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.


Israel elections should send clear message to Trump, PLO, EU and UN

Feb 26, 2019 — David Singer

Israel elections should send clear message to Trump, PLO, EU and UNIsraeli voters at the forthcoming elections on 9 April should be given the opportunity to send President Trump, the PLO, EU and UN a clear message on what they want to see happening in Judea Samaria and East Jerusalem (West Bank) and Gaza – the last 5% of the territory comprised in the Mandate for Palestine where sovereignty remains unresolved between Jews and Arabs (“disputed territories”).

For this to happen - all political parties need to state in clear and unambiguous terms what their policies in relation to the disputed territories will be if they form part of the next Government.


Trump “fake news” media becomes major 2020 election issue

Feb 23, 2019 — David Singer

Trump fake news media becomes major 2020 election issuePresident Trump’s confrontational relationship with what he terms the “fake news” media is set to take centre stage in the 2020 election campaign following the commencement of defamation proceedings by Nicholas Sandmann against the Washington Post claiming $250 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

Threatened further actions against other leading media outlets based on the same circumstances will see a real lawyers picnic keeping the courts very busy whilst the media coverage promises comprehensive and sensational reporting.

The complaint filed by Sandmann’s attorneys sets out the following allegations:


Israel jettisons PLO as negotiating partner on Trump peace plan

Feb 21, 2019 — David Singer

Israel jettisons PLO as negotiating partner on Trump peace planIsrael’s decision to withhold US$138 million dollars in tax revenues collected for the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) - equalling the estimated annual payments made to Palestinian Arabs (or their families) carrying out random and indiscriminate attacks against Israeli civilians—marks a watershed in Israel-PLO relations.

Israel’s action will see the PLO being finally jettisoned as a possible negotiating partner on President Trump’s long-delayed peace plan—deferred yet again until after the Israeli elections in April.


Trump wins even if he loses Supreme Court battle

Feb 18, 2019 — David Singer

President Trump’s Proclamation of a National Emergency on the Southern Border has ensured that the consequences of the illegal entry of drugs, criminals and foreigners through that porous border will now be owned by the Congress and not the President—guaranteeing him certain victory in the 2020 Presidential elections.

The rush to test the legal validity of Trump’s Proclamation in the Courts was clearly in Trump’s mind even before he had signed the final papers:


Israel, PLO, Jordan, EU and UN must agree on boundaries of Palestine

Feb 13, 2019 — David Singer

Israel, PLO, Jordan, EU and UN must agree on boundaries of PalestineEnding the Arab-Jewish conflict over the territory called “historic Palestine” has little chance of success until its territorial boundaries are first agreed between Israel, the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Jordan, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN).

Rima Najjar—a retired professor of English literature at Al-Quds University - claims in a recent article that the territory of “historic Palestine” has been subdivided into Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip but is effectively controlled by the Jewish State.

The following facts contradict her assertions:


USA and EU embroiled in Hamas and PFLP plans to destroy Israel

Feb 6, 2019 — David Singer

USA and EU embroiled in Hamas and PFLP plans to destroy IsraelIsrael’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs has issued a 79 page report exposing a network of members of Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) embedded in Pro-Palestinian non-Government organisations (NGOs) based outside Israel that openly operate in the USA and European Union (EU).

The Report “Terrorists in suits”—is a must-read - detailing:

“How terrorists came to hold key positions in NGOs promoting the Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign against the State of Israel; and how, through these NGOs, they exploit Western governmental funding, philanthropic foundations, financial platforms and civil society to advance their goal of dismantling the State of Israel.”


“State of Palestine” set to confront Trump at United Nations

Jan 22, 2019 — David Singer

State of Palestine set to confront Trump at United NationsThe bizarre Handover ceremony of Egypt’s Chairmanship of the Group of 77 to the “State of Palestine” for 2019 will enable this non-existent and non-member State of the United Nations to play a leading role in the 74 years old farce—“The Question of Palestine and the United Nations” (PUN).

“The State of Palestine” does not meet the criteria for statehood required under the 1933 Montevideo Convention.

The Group of 77 (“the Bloc”) contains 133 of the 193 member states of the United Nations—ensuring the automatic passage of all United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions they propose.


Trump plan for Israel-Jordan-Egypt negotiations hits brick wall

Trump plan for Israel-Jordan-Egypt negotiations hits brick wall

President Trump’s self-styled deal of the century aimed at resolving the 100 years-old Arab-Jewish conflict has now been postponed beyond February for a further unspecified period of months - signalling Jordan and Egypt are still refusing to step up and negotiate with Israel on Trump’s plan.

Jordan and Egypt—having respectively signed peace agreements with Israel in 1994 and 1979 - were the last two Arab states to occupy Judea and Samaria (West Bank), East Jerusalem and Gaza (“the disputed territories”) between 1948 and 1967.  Both are eminently qualified to replace the Palestine Liberation Organisation which has flatly refused—sight unseen—to negotiate with Israel on Trump’s proposals to resolve the allocation of sovereignty in the disputed territories.


U.S. and Israel quit over UNESCO’s love affair with “Palestine”

U.S. and Israel quit over UNESCO's love affair with Palestine
UNESCO’s decision to admit “Palestine” as a member state in 2011 in breach of UNESCO’s own Constitution has come back to bite UNESCO with a vengeance—with America and Israel both quitting their membership of UNESCO on 31 December 2018.

America’s designated funding of 22% of UNESCO’s annual budget will now have to be met by other member states or UNESCO’s programs severely curtailed.

Trump must enjoin UN to condemn Hezbollah, UNIFIL and Hamas
President Trump should urgently enjoin the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to condemn Hezbollah (aka Hizballah) and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) following Israel’s discovery of four tunnels dug from Lebanon into Israel.

Trump signed the Sanctioning the Use of Civilians as Defenseless Shields Act (“HR 3342”) into law on 21 December demanding sanctions against Hamas and Hizballah personnel—foreign terrorist organizations proscribed under 8 U.S.C. 1189.


UN hit list can bypass Congress and fund Trump border wall

UN hit list can bypass Congress and fund Trump border wall
21 Nations that received almost $14 billion in US foreign aid in 2017 could become the key to unlocking the White House confrontation between President Trump and Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over their refusal to commit the Democrats to authorizing Congress to commit $5 billion immediately towards the construction of Trump’s border wall to prevent illegal immigration into America.


United Nations, Egypt and Jordan could scuttle Trump’s peace plan

United Nations, Egypt and Jordan could scuttle Trump's peace plan
President Trump’s long-awaited peace plan to end the Arab-Jewish conflict—slated for release by the end of January 2019—could be indefinitely shelved.

This possibility has emerged following the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) failing to pass an American-sponsored resolution A/73/L.42 (“Resolution”) - condemning Hamas and other militant organisations in Gaza for indiscriminate attacks on Israel’s civilian population.


UN-Hamas day of infamy mars Trump-Israel day of celebration

UN-Hamas day of infamy mars Trump-Israel day of celebration
December 6, 2018 marks the day the United Nations General Assembly (“UNGA”) infamously sold its soul to evil by failing to agree on whether a resolution condemning Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza required a two-thirds—or simple—majority vote.

December 6, 2018 also happened to be the first anniversary of President Trump’s announcement of America’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the intended relocation of America’s Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.


Trump stand shames UN rejection of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

Dec 5, 2018 — David Singer

Trump stand shames UN rejection of Jerusalem as Israel's capitalDecember 6 marks the first anniversary of President Trump’s historic and ground-breaking announcement to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the American Embassy to Jerusalem.

President Trump’s decision flew in the face of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 on 23 December 2016 reaffirming that:

“the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace”
