Israel and Stuff would ordinarily not use Al Jazeera as a news source, due to
its saturation of propaganda embedded into its reports. This article however,
appears to be genuine as the theme is an accumulation of already published
material in Israel and abroad.

After a year working and living in Israel as a journalist covering  the conflict with the Palestinians, New England born & raised Hunter Stuart was forced to rethink his positions after seeing first-hand the truth about the conflict.

A View From The Frontlines, By Hunter Stuart

 

IN THE summer of 2015, just three days after I moved to Israel for a year-and-a-half stint freelance reporting in the region, I wrote down my feelings about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A friend of mine in New York had mentioned that it would be interesting to see if living in Israel would change the way I felt. Continue Reading »

ANALYSIS: PA’s Abbas professes desire for 2-state-solution, but will never actualize it

 

Although the Fatah run Palestinian Authority, led by autocrat Mahmoud Abbas, publicly endorses a 2-state-solution to the US, UN, EU etc., the moment a Palestinian state was to gain independence, Hamas would eradicate Fatah exactly as it did in Gaza in 2007, and ‘Abbas and Associates’ know this as a guaranteed outcome…which is why Abbas is in his 12th year of a 4 year term as president…and having never agreed to peace offers by Israel.

By Hillel Fendel

 

Why does the PA oppose a two-state solution? It’s simple: Without the IDF to protect it, Fatah would be swallowed up by Hamas. Continue Reading »

Announcing new alternative: The New State Solution

 

Op-ed: The New State Solution appears to merit serious consideration in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, after decades of failed attempts at the 2-state solution, that multiple int’l institutions and leaders have subscribed to, but failed terribly.
– It’s time that other ideas be allowed to enter the public discourse.

Report: Israeli Schools Teach Peace, Palestinians Prefer Jihad

 

Global educational watchdog reports Israeli textbooks teach peace as the ultimate goal, while Abbas’ PA approved Palestinian schools encourage conflict and jihad, ignoring any possibility of peace with Jews or Israelis.

By Israel Today Staff

 

Two recent studies have found that while the Israeli school curriculum makes a great effort to promote peace between Jews and Arabs, the Palestinian Authority school curriculum is doing the exact opposite in violation of signed peace agreements.

Both studies were conducted by IMPACT-SE, and organization that “monitors and analyzes education across the world to determine compliance with international standards on peace and tolerance.”

In its most recent report, the group analyzed 123 Israeli textbooks for grades 7–12 and concluded Israeli children are taught that “peace [is] the ultimate goal, and depict[ed] it as highly desirable and achievable, while war is considered a negative event, though at times necessary.”

Furthermore, the Israeli schoolbooks openly recognize the “existence of the Palestinian National Movement and events regarding the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are, as a rule, given in a balanced and impartial manner.”

By contrast, an earlier analysis of 78 Palestinian Authority textbooks for grades 1–12 revealed that “the word ‘peace’ does not appear at all,” and that the “State of Israel, with one exception, never actually appears on maps.”

By Elad Benari

 

A group of 88 senators on Monday signed a bipartisan letter urging President Barack Obama to maintain the long-standing U.S. policy of vetoing any one-sided United Nations Security Council resolutions on the Israeli-Palestinian Arab issue.

The letter, initiated by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Mike Rounds (R-SD), cites Obama’s 2011 General Assembly address in which he said, “Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the United Nations.”

“As you prepare to attend the United Nations General Assembly, we write to address the issue of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations,” the senators wrote in the letter. Continue Reading »
