PLO vs. Hamas in West Bank elections or ‘Old Guard’ PLO vs. Fatah

Whether or not the elections Abbas has planned in May will actually happen, the demon is out of the bottle, and with the infighting between the ‘Old Guard’ PLO members from Tunisia vs the local Palestinians, the end of PLO’s political supremacy in the West Bank seems near.

But it soon became clear that the story was not Fatah against Hamas, but Fatah against Fatah. Continue Reading »

The KGB and the ORIGINS OF THE PALESTINIAN NARRATIVE

This succinct but articulated chronology of the Palestinian narrative clearly explains why the Palestinian leadership have always bolted from EVERY attempt to end the Israel-Arab conflict, and how, under the tutelage of the KGB, they adopted the invented narrative that the Palestinians are a ‘people’.

Then thousands of released KGB documents became available with the collapse of the USSR. The Palestinian leadership are still going through great pains to keep their real origin from the public, of how the ‘Palestinian People’ were invented during the Cold War to disrupt American foreign policy and keep the Mid-East unstable for the expansion of Soviet influence.

Known for consistently rejecting a sovereign state at every opportunity, WHY is the Palestinian leadership rigorously sabotaging a record $50 billion economic infusion plan facilitated by the international community that would guarantee the economic viability of their future state?

By Phillip Pasmanick

Analysis: The Arabs will never make peace with Israel & Trump can’t make them

UPDATED: The U.S. & EU are no longer able to continue funding the Palestinians, while both are struggling with millions of illegal migrants pouring into their countries.
– President Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ will theoretically supply answers/solutions, but will Palestinian leaders break from tradition, and accept Statehood?

By Phillip Pasmanick

 

The only way to change what has been going on for the past few decades, is get statehood for the Arabs; design a workable infrastructure of services & production, and have a viable economy stimulated by taxes and an efficient government.  But, a number of existing dynamics are currently in play (and well oiled), that are in direct contradiction to such a hearty goal.

Zanoun added that the entire Palestinian people, women, children, young and old, would not surrender or sell the Palestinian rights for money (a hint to the US peace plan) and would continue to cling to their land out of loyalty to the “shaheeds” (martyrs -ed.) and the sacrifice of the prisoners and the wounded.
