If the UAE, Bahrain, Oman and other potential Arab peace partners of Israel would allow Palestinians to become citizens, it would be an even bigger political earthquake than those countries normalizing relations with Israel.

Right now there are 150,000 Palestinian workers in the UAE and about 250,000 in Saudi Arabia, along with at least another 100,000 in other Gulf countries. These countries have huge outside worker populations.

Palestinians are desirable workers. They work harder than Gulf Arabs and are generally better educated. Many of them know Hebrew which will make them more important as Gulf countries slowly normalize with Israel.

If the UAE and Saudi Arabia would announce that they would accept Palestinians as citizens, motivated Palestinians from the territories would move there, as well as many more from Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. It would help the Gulf countries’ economies and it would help Palestinians who want to live in s stable Arab land where they can raise their families.

Interesting point, never thought about it.

If only they take that constructive step,
regionally there's great economic potential for them.

Good article.

But too late, and Seth wasn't lying about being lied to...he just spots the hypocrisy.
And it's not that the teachers lied to him, it's that they themselves don't walk the talk.

The Talmud says that Judaism in the diaspora is like idol worship.
That's exactly what the young generation is calling on, no new curriculum will heal that.

You either do what You teach and come home to Israel,
or lie to Your children, and children are good at spotting that.

Period, nuff with the none sense.

This is just utter absurdity.

Both the UAE and Israel stand to benefit from free trade and cooperation. Very positive for both.




The ruler of the United Arab Emirates issued a decree Saturday formally ending the country's boycott of Israel amid a U.S.-brokered deal to normalize relations between the two countries.

The announcement now allows trade and commerce between the UAE, home to oil-rich Abu Dhabi and skyscraper-studded Dubai, and Israel, home to a thriving diamond trade, pharmaceutical companies and tech start-ups.

Clarifying Herodotus on "Palestine"

Every Arab and pro-Palestinian will quote Herodotus to "prove" that the "original" name of this country called Eretz-Yisrael was "Palestine".* You can read:

The name “Palestine” first appeared in Herodotus’ 5th century BCE histories to describe the coastal area of the Levant where the Philistines lived

So the name did not start with the Romans and Herod but from a Greek text.

But let's quote Herodotus, I:105:


The Phoenicians and the Syrians of Palestine
and

Thence they went on to invade Egypt; and when they were
in Syria which is called Palestine


But that continues so:

and as they retreated, when they came to the city of Ascalon in Syria,

Is "Palestine" a separate country or a region and is it in Syria?

The phrase "now in the West Bank" is awkward - did the cave somehow move from Judea to the "West Bank"? But for the Times to more accurately say "now called the West Bank" would be problematic for a paper that chose to embrace that term only in the 1970s.

No one had ever heard of the "West Bank" before the 1950s, yet that Jordanian name is now considered the most accurate for media like the New York Times while "Judea" is considered a right-wing Israeli term created to supplant it. Articles like this are awkward precisely because they highlight that the land has always been associated with Jews, not "Palestinian" Arabs.

Luckily, the scientists who managed this remarkable feat aren't bound by the political correctness of using a brand new term for a Jewish historic area:

Ancient Judea was ideally placed between North Africa and Asia, along major trade routes, and the Romans, who traded all over the Mediterranean, could have brought western varieties with them to pollinate the older varieties from the east.

“Putting it simply, what do we find?” Dr. Sallon said. “The story of ancient Israel and the Jewish people, of diasporas, trade routes and commerce throughout the Middle East.”

The Arab league has some obvious questions to address. As an organization, do they stay tied to the Pals who denigrate and berate them while demanding welfare money and at the same time align with the Shia Iranians

OR,

do they (grudgingly) accept that their longer term economic, social and political future is best served by suppressing the worst elements of their 1,400 year old politico-religious ideology relative to the Jewish people?

The beginning of a new beginning may have been reached.





The Arab League on Wednesday refused to endorse a Palestinian draft resolution condemning the United Arab Emirates for its normalization agreement with Israel, a move that is a severe blow to the Palestinians, Ramallah officials said.

The proposal was presented by the Palestinians to a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers, and Palestinian officials said some Arab countries objected to it.

Not a lot of confirmation available on this but very interesting.



This is just hitting Twitter right now. Israeli media are reporting that Israel and Morocco have reached an agreement on allowing direct flights between those two countries.

This is a bit different - countries like UAE, Bahrain and Oman
don't have a history of violence and expulsion of the Jewish community.

With countries like Morocco, Iraq, Lebanon etc. is more complicated.
Not only Israelis owned tens of billions in property in those countries,
there're also different more complicated geopolitical issues and adversaries.

Morocco wants an American recognition of its claims on Western Saharah, and clarity with Turkey.

In context - Israelis are Morocco's most cherished tourists, many groups come yearly on the dates of great Jewish sages buried there, which the kingdom guards with care. As well as about 2 years ago they brought one of Israel's most cherished sages to be the Chief Rabbi of the kingdom of Morocco.

I personally don't care about Saharah,
regarding Turkey it's their choice.

As for property, any formal agreement with this country,
has to fundamentally address this issue in a respectful manner.

However, reportedly, the Jordanian move to expel Nizar Tamimi could cause his wife to join him in Qatar, which does not have an extradition treaty with the United States.

Were Ahlam Tamimi to follow her husband, “it is hard to say” if she would be risk being extradited from there to the United States, according to Benjamin Weil, director of the Project for Israel’s National Security for the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET).

“On the one hand, Qatar doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the United States. On the other hand, she risks getting stopped by the Interpol on her way to Qatar. The United States has a lot of leverage over Jordan and was unsuccessful in extraditing her, despite its extradition treaty with the Jordanians,” he told JNS.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Thursday implied that Jerusalem belongs to Turkey, referring to the Ottoman Empire’s control over the city for much of the modern era.

Senior Hamas-Hole Fathi Hammad Who Called For Slaughter of Worldwide Jewry Contracts Coronavirus

From the Karma’s a Bitch department:

Senior Hamas official Fathi Hammad has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the terror group announces.

Hammad is widely considered to be a hardliner even by the standards of Hamas, which avowedly seeks to destroy Israel. In an infamous speech in July 2019, he called for members of the Palestinian diaspora to kill Jews wherever they could.

“All of you 7 million Palestinians abroad, enough of the warming up. You have Jews everywhere and we must attack every Jew on the globe by way of slaughter and killing, if Allah permits.

Here’s hoping karma’s a real bitch to him, and he ends up where he wanted all the Jews around the globe to end up.

Incidentally, Fathi always looks like he has the coronavirus




either that, or Hammad.
