UNREPORTED in the West: After Prince William Duke of Cambridge finished this tour of the Jalazun refugee camp east of Ramallah, Palestinian children took to the streets to pelt him, and his convoy with stones.
By Israel Today Staff
Prince William’s visit was important for being the first (official visit) by a member of the British Royal Family since the founding of the State of Israel. But beside that fact, it was a rather uneventful stopover, as befitting the visit of an apolitical figure to a politically-charged region.
Except for once incident.
Seems that when Prince William went to visit with Palestinian and UN officials in Ramallah, his vehicle was stoned by Palestinian children. Continue Reading »

The United Kingdom announced on Tuesday that it would provide £38.5 million in advanced aid to UNRWA after the Palestinian refugee agency was flung into a severe financial crisis due to the US decision to cutback $250 million in funding this year.

UNRWA uses photo from Syria in outright deception, to make Westerners feel sorry for ‘poor Gaza girl’, in ploy to attain contributions… and demonize Israel. Continue Reading »

As Western nations work for gender equality in society, Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority proudly noted on International Women’s Day, how it has always allowed women to be suicide-bombers and armed terrorists.
By Ryan Jones
Not wanting to miss out on the gender equality movement that’s all the rage in most of the Western world these days, the Palestinian Authority has been talking up the prominent role of women in its society.
For instance, most Palestinian leaders have absolutely no problem with women joining men as equals in the merciless slaughter of Israeli Jews.
In fact, the most deadly Palestinian terrorist attack on Israelis ever was led by a women. Continue Reading »
Op-Ed: Chile has the largest Palestinian Arab community outside the Middle East – 500,000 out of nearly 18 million – where they have prospered & successfully integrated into all avenues of society, yet 2.5 million of their mid-east brethren, destined to be manipulated, exploited and punished to yet another generation of indoctrination, suffer as puppets to their kleptocratic leaders, who perpetuate the status quo for their personal self-enrichment and that of their families.

A ‘must read’: This immutable New York Times op-ed, penned by then Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, is still accurate, as it was when published 41 years ago.
By Golda Meir, the 4th Prime Minister of Israel
January 14, 1976
To be misquoted is an occupational hazard of political leadership; for this reason I should like to clarify my position in regard to the Palestinian issue. I have been charged with being rigidly insensitive to the question of the Palestinian Arabs. In evidence of this I am supposed to have said, “There are no Palestinians.” My actual words were: “There is no Palestinian people. Continue Reading »

The UNRWA School System: A convenient, Western financed incubator for propagating Palestinian terrorists.
By David Bedein
The US government decision to suspend funds to UNRWA schools until reforms take place in UNRWA has raised some eyebrows.
Why did the US suspend funds to UNRWA in the first place?
Since 1999, Hamas has been chosen in successive internal UNRWA elections in Gaza to lead the workers union and teachers union of UNRWA, as mentors who influence generations of Palestinian refugee descendants to launch a violent Jihad for the ‘right of return’ to Arab villages lost during the 1948 war.
In that context, the first comprehensive study of UNRWA school books, completed in July 2017, reflects the terrorist domination of UNRWA schools. Continue Reading »
