PA’s collapse provides potential “Peace & Prosperity” for Palestinians

A former senior US adviser on Islamic Affairs for the Pentagon says Israel should allow the breakdown of the Palestinian Authority to happen, so that a new generation of non-PLO leaders can replace the existing, autocratic, kleptocracy.

Despite US President Donald Trump’s release of the “Peace to Prosperity” Mideast plan earlier this year to help resolve issues associated with the decades-long conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, it remains clear that no negotiations between the two parties are on the horizon amid a Palestinian boycott of the Trump administration.

Given this and the ongoing discussion of Israel’s imminent move to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, questions are being raised over the viability of Palestinian Authority, especially as Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, 84, has once again threatened to cut off security cooperation with Israel over the move.

A conference that aims to raise billions of dollars to “rebuild Gaza” after Hamas’s latest terror war on Israel faces “donor fatigue,” an insider told AFP on Friday.

The United Nations’ Palestinian Arab “refugee” agency, the UNRWA, has described the financial needs as “unprecedented” ahead of the Cairo meeting, which follows Hamas’s third war on Israeli civilians in six years.

Iran Forces Jewish ‘Minyan’ for Global March: Report

Iran is forcing 10 Jews to join a group headed to Lebanon for the planned Global March on Jerusalem, despite dangers of terrorist kidnappings, according to DEBKAfile. The Islamic Republic is heavily funding the march and flying people from Asian countries to Iran and then to Lebanon.

Iranian sources told the website, managed in part by former intelligence officials, that the event’s organizers ordered the Jewish community, estimated at between 15,000 and 25,000 people, to send 10 people to march along Muslims in Lebanon. Ten Jews, by coincidence or not, is the number required for public prayer.

The Iranian leaders of the march reportedly ordered that the Jews, from ages 18 to 22, will have the “honor” of leading the march, which would make them even more vulnerable to Hizbullah and Palestinian Authority-allied terrorists in Lebanon. Continue Reading »
