(There will not be another Lebanon-Israel war )

Hezbollah bragged this week that it has 100,000 fighters. The figure is a major exaggeration, but it is symbolic of how Hezbollah no longer feels the need to even pretend to be a small “resistance” movement, but brags that it has more forces than the Lebanese army and has in effect made Lebanon a colony within the greater Hezbollah empire.

Expert on Lebanon Hanin Ghaddar, who is at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, wrote that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah had given the 100,000 figure. She noted on Twitter that it was an exaggeration, “even if you include the reservists. In addition, quantity is one thing, but quality of their fighters has been shaken by long wars, budget shifts and emergency recruiting during Syria [conflict]...”

One line passes between Ben and Jerry’s and Kamala Harris, Marjory Taylor Greene and Dave Chappelle. It’s a red one, indicating that something has gone wrong with our societal discourse. Acts of hatred and antisemitism are born out of ignorance, all “just because it’s true.” Words have meaning and consequences. When we let ignorance rule the dome, when we accept it willingly instead of standing up for the truth, when we do not demand accountability, we allow dangerous notions into our public square.

Linde met with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, prime minister Muhammad Shtayyeh and foreign minister Riyad Al-Maliki.

She also allayed the Palestinian fears that her thawing of relations with Israel - this was the first such delegation to visit Israel in ten years - will not affect the Swedish attitude of support for Palestinians. She reiterated Sweden's support for a two state solution and for Palestinians to be able to hold elections in east Jerusalem.

Which means that even the staunchest Palestinian allies in Europe are starting to realize that the money they send Palestinians is being wasted.

  • Palestinian Media Watch submitted a complaint on May 23, 2021 to Israeli police against Facebook Israel and its CEO for aiding and abetting Fatah incitement to terror, under clause 24(b)(1) of the Anti-Terror Law.​

  • PMW has now been informed by Israeli police that it has opened an official investigation pursuant to our complaint. Conviction for someone who “publishes direct calls to commit acts of terror” is up to 5 years of imprisonment.​

  • Background: In April and early May, Mahmoud Abbas' PA and Fatah were actively inciting violence and terror. The Palestinian population was furious that Abbas had cancelled elections to prevent a Hamas victory, and Abbas was trying to distract them with a terror wave in defense of Jerusalem. With over a quarter of a million followers, the avenue of choice for the PA and Fatah to promote violence and terror was Fatah’s Facebook pages.​

  • On May 9, 2021, PMW alerted Facebook, writing to the CEO of Facebook Israel Adi Soffer Teeni, that Fatah was using its many Facebook pages to publish calls to commit acts of terror. PMW demanded that Facebook close Fatah’s Facebook pages.​

  • PMW warned Facebook: “If you fail to act as the violence [in Jerusalem] rages and as Fatah and its leaders continue to abuse the Facebook platform to spread violence, we will have no choice but to submit an official complaint to the Israeli police against Facebook in general and key personnel in particular, for the aiding and abetting the violence. We expect your quick and decisive response.” [PMW letter, May 9, 2021]​

  • However, Facebook continued its policy of allowing Fatah to post incitement to hate and terror, and to publish direct calls to commit acts of terror, thus fanning the terror in Jerusalem and the rest of Israel throughout the Gaza war with Hamas.​

  • PMW submitted the complaint to Israeli police against Facebook Israel and its CEO for incitement to terror on May 23 and recently was notified by the police that a formal investigation of PMW’s complaint was opened. Given the clear evidence (see below), we hope that the police will act swiftly against Facebook to determine if prosecution is warranted against the Israeli Facebook staff who made the decision to enable Fatah to use Facebook to promote terror. In addition, we hope the police will demand the closure of the Fatah’s Facebook pages that, as PMW has shown, have been actively fanning the flames of terror for many years.​

Except that there is no Jewish occupation, only Arab one. :) Since the 7th century

Amazing how so many Arabs do not consider Arabia to be their home.

"The whole world is Muslim" is what they say.

No wonder Jews re constructing their homeland on their own land is a sin against Islam and all primitive Arab thinking.

Sure, post something for critique.
It was posted. All you do is write some cute little sentence about it, without ever providing a real different
discussion and evidence to compliment those words.

But we're not talking about critique,
rather why instead of arguing your point,
you feel the need to resort to ad hominems?

If you say Richard Kemp is wrong about anything -why can't you show it?
Post something.

According to the Israel Health Ministry 2020 report on health care personnel, Arabs and Druze in Israel — who make up about 20 percent of the country’s population — were the recipients of 46 percent of new licenses issued, up from 18% in 2010 and 11% in 2000.

For the Israeli venture capital fund Takwin, which invests only in startups led by at least one Arab founder, that trajectory is a good sign that Arabs will play a growing role in the country’s start-up ecosystem.

“The future is very bright for Arab entrepreneurship in high-tech and for the integration of Arabs into the Israeli society and in its economy,” Itzik Frid, Managing Partner and CEO of the Takwin firm, told The Algemeiner in an interview. “I’m very certain that the same thing that happened in the medical field — that almost 50 percent of new medical licenses were issued to Arabs — the same exact thing will happen in high-tech.”

Considered a primary growth engine of the Israeli economy, the high-tech sector today is comprised of less than 3 percent Arab citizens, while no Arab-founded unicorn or large exit of an Arab company has yet occurred. There are currently an estimated 120 active Arab startups, according to Takwin, compared to almost 6,900 registered Israeli startups cited by the Start-Up Nation Central organization.


At the same time, Frid pointed out that about 20% of the students at top technology institutions like the Technion in Haifa, Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are now Arabs.
