Organizers of the film festival in Singapore resonated the same message that Israel’s been claiming for years: ‘Palestinian media incites violence.’

By Israel Today Staf


Israel’s been complaining about ongoing Palestinian incitement to violence (in violation of the so-called “Oslo Accords”) for years. Now, it seems some in the international community are finally catching on to the problem.

PALLYWOOD at work: In attempts at provoking a physical response by the IDF to humiliate the soldiers and officers on social media, 16 yr-old Palestinian Ahed Tamimi slaps, punches and kicks them while family members film the attack. Ahed Tamimi has subsequently been arrested, and is being held for trial.

REPORT: Palestinian leadership indoctrinate the children to die fighting Israel


If world leaders were really serious about promoting a genuine Israeli-Palestinian peace, they need to pressure Palestinian leaders to prepare future generations for peace, by replacing gov’t sponsored anti-Israel incitement and “martyrdom” adulation, with messages of peaceful coexistence as Israel teaches.

Palestinians Exploiting Children to Fight Israel By Noah Beck


The new Palestinian curriculum for grades 1 to 4 “is significantly more radical than previous curricula,” concludes a new study by Hebrew University’s Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se-se). It “teaches students to be martyrs, demonizes and denies the existence of Israel, and focuses on a ‘return’ to an exclusively Palestinian homeland.”

In response to pressure from President Trump, Israel reportedly is preparing a series of concessions to Palestinians in a bid to re-launch peace talks. Continue Reading »

$24 million ‘Palestinian museum’ opens – with no exhibits or artifacts


Since the ‘Palestinian’ culture is young, having only been declared in the mid 1960’s, more time will be needed before genuine archaeological exhibits are added.

By Hillel Fendel


The world has long had its absolutely shortest books – “Light Jewish Cuisine,” and “Tips on Courting Israel” by Barack Obama,” to name a couple – but now it has its emptiest museum, and this time for real: The Palestinian Museum of Art, History and Culture – with absolutely nothing in it.

The museum is actually named the Palestinian Museum, it cost $24 million, and it is scheduled to celebrate its opening today in Birzeit, just outside Ramallah (and Beit El). Continue Reading »

3 Palestinians arrested: More Jewish History Being Stolen by Palestinians


The 12-centimeter high sculpture of King Herod’s lover Mariamne, also known as Miriam in Hebrew, valued at nearly a million dollars, was confiscated by the Palestinian Authority who claim it as ‘Palestinian culture’.



The Palestinian Preventive Security Services (PPS) arrested Monday night three Palestinians who tried to smuggle an ancient statue of King Herod’s lover from the West Bank city of Tulkarm into Israel.


A statement released by the PPS following the incident read: “Based on intelligence information, security forces burst on Sunday into a home in Zeita, a village in north Tulkarm, and carried out a complicated security operation, during which they arrested three archaeologists and confiscated the statue.”

According to the statement, the archaeologists held negotiations with an Arab-Israeli merchant aimed at selling the statue for $600,000. Continue Reading »

Hit her, but don’t make her ugly.

That’s the message of an official Palestinian Authority (PA) television show in Gaza teaching Muslim men how to keep their wives “in line,” as translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

“When she makes a mistake,” explains the PA Mufti of Gaza, Hassan Al-Laham, “he will explain: you shouldn’t do this and that.” After this warning stage, advises the Mufti, men should “separate” from their wives until they change their behavior. Continue Reading »

UNESCO Chief Slams Palestinian Attempt to Hijack Jewish Holy Site as Muslim


UNESCO Director-General issues formal statement ‘deploring’ Palestinian initiative proposed by Arab states, to claim Judaism’s Kotel as part of Al-Aqsa compound saying it “undermines UNESCO’s mandate and efforts.”

By Ari Soffer



In what could be a crucial development, the head of UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization) has issued a statement roundly condemning the Palestinian Authority bid to claim the Kotel (Western Wall) as a Muslim site.

In a statement issued Tuesday afternoon, UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova urged Organization members to reject the proposal, which she said threatened to “incite tensions.”


Announcing that she had “started broad consultations so as to encourage UNESCO Member States to pursue constructive dialogue in accordance with UNESCO’s mandate” following announcement of the bid – which is being backed by several Arab member-states of UNESCO, the statement continued:

[Bokova] deplores the recent proposals under discussion by the UNESCO Executive Board that could be seen to alter the status of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls, inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list  and that could further incite tensions.

In a video taken at Dubai nightclub that surfaced on social media recently, millionaire son of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas appears to be more stimulated watching belly dancers and drinking alcohol than getting involved in his country’s affairs.

By Daniel Siryoti & Israel Hayom Staff


As Palestinian terror wave against Israel continues, it looks like Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ son, Yasser, is less interested in the current crisis than in living it up it Dubai.

Palestinians Claim Ownership of Judaism’s ‘Western Wall’ at UNESCO


The proposal, likely to pass due to Muslim majority in the UNESCO Executive Council, will have Judaism’s Kotel (a.k.a. Western Wall or Wailing Wall in English) renamed Buraq Plaza, and incorporated as part of Islam’s Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

By Ari Yashar


In an attempt to gain international legitimacy for its rewriting of history, the Palestinian Authority (PA) will submit a resolution to UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) next week claiming the Kotel (Western Wall) as its own.

The proposal calls to have the Kotel in Jerusalem – which is an outer wall of the Temple Mount that is the holiest site in Judaism – recognized as part of Al-Aqsa Mosque located on the Mount, reports Yedioth Aharonoth on Friday. Continue Reading »

Founder of Palestinian movement worked with Nazis in WWII

Whenever the war of annihilation against Israel has threatened to die out, as it did after Israel’s victory in her 1948 War of Independence, or again after Israel’s peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, it has been the Palestinian national movement that has reignited it through its relentless campaign to demonize Israel and slaughter her citizens.



During a debate at Arizona State University against anti-Israel Israelis of the far left, I told the story of Haj Amin al-Husseini, founder of the Palestinian national movement and protégé of Adolf Hitler. Seeing heads shake in disbelief, I challenged those who doubted these facts to Google it. Continue Reading »

Gaza has five official slaughterhouses, but wait times were hours long, so a great many Gazans decided to do their own public butchering for the holiday, which is typically accompanied by much feasting.

But, as videos and pictures posted to the Internet revealed, many of the Palestinians did not contend themselves to simply slaughtering the animals, but first engaged in what can only be described as torture. Continue Reading »
