Arab League Economic Summit snubs the PA

Posted by avideditor on January 21, 2011

We have seen this happen before. As the West has been accelerating their throwing cash at Palestinian Arabs in the cause of “peace,” the Arabs have written off the Palestinian Arabs as a waste of money and time. They will make statements of support – and there were statements in support of Jerusalem at the summit as well – but they will no longer put their money where their mouths are. ” Read the rest at Palestinian Arabs snubbed at Arab League Economic Summit

PA continues to make terrorists into heroes

Posted by avideditor on January 21, 2011

The sick jihadis at the PA continue to glorify fellow terrorists.

PMW once again documents how PA TV – controlled by the government – has shown music videos praising Dalal Mughrabi, the leader of one of the deadliest terror attacks in Israel ever. Both of these were shown within the past mont

(IsraelNN.com) Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai, 40, of Shavei Shomron, was mortally wounded in the head Thursday afternoon when terrorists fired at the car he was traveling in, between the Jewish communities of Shavei Shomron and Einav in Samaria, west of Shechem, according to preliminary reports. A spokesperson for Shavei Shomron said that Rabbi Meir Chai worked as an educator at the local school and kindergarten, and that the children were very attached to him. He lived in the community for 14 years and was considered a wise Torah scholar, modest and well-loved.

A large force of Israeli soldiers and police has started searching for the terrorists, who escaped the scene.

Magen David Adom emergency services declared the victim of the shooting dead late Thursday afternoon.

Concessions to Obama Blamed for Enabling Murder of Meir Chai

(IsraelNN.com) Samaria Regional Council Head Gershon Mesika said following the terrorist murder of Rabbi Meir Chai from Samaria Thursday: “After a long period of security quiet, the main roadblock between Shavei Shomron and Tulkarm was recently opened, despite our warnings. The government of Israel preferred ‘the Palestinian fabric of life’ to its citizens’ rights.”

The IDF’s removal of roadblocks is widely perceived as a gesture toward US President Barack Obama, who has pressured Israel to make Arabs’ “fabric of life” as comfortable as possible.

Last Thursday, soldiers removed the concrete cubes and metal gate that made up the roadblock north of Shechem, near Shavei Shomron, despite pleas by Samaria residents to the IDF not to remove it. The removal means that traffic between Shechem and Tulkarm now flows without any security monitoring. Another IDF checkpoint on the road, at Beit Iba at the northern exit from Shechem, was removed several months ago.

Upon receiving news of the attack, MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) of the National Union said that “this is the first payment of the the ‘at any price’ of the Shalit deal, even before the deal has been carried out. The tracks lead to Netanyahu who is willing to release arch-murderers but freezes the lives of Jews and opens roadblocks, thus encouraging the terror he is surrendering to.”

Israel is not a US Colony or the Fifty-First State

Posted by Glezele Vayne on January 24, 2009

Gil Ronen of Arutz Sheva quoted National Union leader Ya’akov “Ketzale” Katz  as saying “(President Barak)  Obama needed to be reminded that Israel is not an American colony or the 51st state.”

Here!! Here!! I’d love to agree with Ketzale. Sadly, all I have to say is:  Read history and welcome to Rome. Not officially of course, only in reality.

Your federal government at work … for Palestinians

Posted by avideditor on April 6, 2008

I find this deeply disturbing. I hope people can change this. Write to your representatives and make a difference. Have our government stop giving terrorist money to kill jews. This is like the US building Gas chambers for Hitler during WW2.

Your federal government at work … for Palestinians: ”

Bush_thumbs_up

‘Consistent with current foreign policy,

certain transactions otherwise prohibited …

are being authorized …’

Treas_logo

04/12/2006

The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has determined that Hamas, a terrorist entity whose property and interests in property are blocked under three separate OFAC-administered economic sanctions programs, has a property interest in the transactions of the Palestinian Authority. Accordingly, pursuant to the Global Terrorism Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 594, the Terrorism Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 595, and the Foreign Terrorist Organizations Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 597, U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in transactions with the Palestinian Authority unless authorized, and may not transfer, pay, withdraw, export or otherwise deal in any assets in which the Palestinian Authority has an interest unless authorized. Consistent with current foreign policy, certain transactions otherwise prohibited pursuant to the Regulations are being authorized by general license to facilitate limited transactions by U.S. persons with the Palestinian Authority. General licenses or statements of licensing policy will be issued as appropriate to authorize additional transactions with the Palestinian Authority or to indicate limited circumstances under which other transactions may be considered for favorable licensing treatment on a case-by-case basis. Information on complying with specific aspects of these general licenses, including a list relevant to compliance with General License No. 4(b), is available on OFAC’s website.

And lest you think ‘certain [otherwise prohibited] transactions’ are merely being ‘authorized,’ think again. They’re being encouraged, promoted and assisted… all over our federal
dot-GOV. Here’s just one thread, in addition to that Treasury Department loophole.

Yes, you can do business in the West Bank and Gaza! Dozens of American firms have established agencies and distributorships, and Palestinian consumers have a strong preference for a wide variety of U.S. goods and services.

Many American companies have reoriented their marketing efforts to acknowledge the Palestinian market as culturally, economically, and commercially distinct from the Israeli market.

The U.S. Commercial Service in Jerusalem strongly encourages American exporters wishing to market their goods in the West Bank & Gaza to use local Palestinian agents and distributors….

We can help you find well qualified Palestinian agents and distributors for your products.

…. The U.S. Commercial Service in Jerusalem offers invaluable assistance to U.S. companies seeking to export products and services to the West Bank and Gaza and expand their business in the market. We have developed excellent contacts with private sector representatives, and are able to provide U.S. companies with necessary introductions, market reports and guidance to facilitate doing business in the West Bank and Gaza.

So … In addition to directly funding the Palestinian Authority [$150 million already released + $405 million more in the US.gov pipeline] our government is in the business of promoting doing business … with the Palestinians. There are tons of U.S. government programs; I’m just starting to scratch the surface.

The Department of Commerce will not only help U.S. companies do business in the terror-tories, it’s also out there soliciting Palestinians to do business with us! Consider for example this Reverse Gold Key program at the United States of America Department of Commerce website. Federal employees (need I mention that they are paid with your tax dollars?) will bend over backwards and hold your hand … if you are Palestinian.

Just READ THIS. You’ll flip (I did).

Looking for a U.S. partner?

If you are a Palestinian importer or agent looking for a U.S. manufacturer, or a Palestinian manufacturer with an innovative technology looking for a U.S. partner for joint R and D or product development,
we offer you the Gold Key USA.

Gold Key USA is the domestic version of the Gold Key Matching Service. It is designed to match Palestinian companies traveling to the U.S. with pre-screened, pre-qualified U.S. exporters or U.S. partners located in a specific area.

The fee for the service varies by location.

U.S. Commercial Service Trade Specialists at our Export Assistance Centers (EAC’s) will provide you with:

  • three to five appointments with pre-screened U.S. companies;
  • a market briefing;
  • office space for the day of scheduled appointments;
  • domestic use of fax, telephone and internet;
  • assistance arranging hotel accommodations;
  • interpretation and transportation services for an additional fee;
  • immediately contacting you or our office upon receipt of the preliminary assessment form to ensure that he/she has complete understanding of the types of suppliers the Gold Key USA client wants to meet;
  • accompanying the Gold Key USA client on scheduled appointments if requested.

The market briefing is a consultation by a trade specialist about the industry market conditions in the USEAC coverage area for the product or service you are seeking to purchase.

The delivery time for this service is approximately five weeks from receipt of payment.

The most effective Gold Key USA results require your substantial involvement and follow-up. We strongly suggest that you work closely with the Commercial Specialist at the U.S. Commercial Service in Jerusalem and the Trade Specialist in the USEAC to clearly outline the type of international partner that you believe will be most useful to your company and establish an effective strategy for continuing communication with potential international partners.

If you are interested in this service, please go to our ‘Meet our Staff’ section to send a message to one of our specialists.

Just more thing before I go back to doing my taxes (don’t let the irony escape you). See the top link here, on the left, where it says ‘New!’ in red?

Dear Investors: 

The Palestine Investment Conference promises to be a historic event….

That’s pretty ‘historic,’ alright — holding a conference in a country that doesn’t even exist.

With my money. And yours.

Just thought you’d wanna know.
