TROUBLE IN THE HOLY LAND
Muslim cleric calls
for death of Arafat
Says Israel should continue offensive until he's executed

A noted Italian Muslim leader and regional expert has called on Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to continue his military campaign against Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat until the latter is "executed or jailed."
"Sheikh [Prof. Abdul Hadi] Palazzi asks Prime Minister Sharon not to stop the military operation against the boss of terror, until the day when the Egyptian criminal Abdel Ra'uf al-Kobdah [aka Yasser Arafat]" is neutralized for good.
Palazzi, who is secretary-general of the Italian Muslim Association, also said he approved of Sharon's decision to "destroy the centers of the Arafatian terror in Israel" and accused the Palestinian Authority chairman of inciting "more than 30 years of barbarian and indiscriminate terror."
Meanwhile, Sheikh Ali Hussen, president of the Italian Muslim Association, also praised Sharon's actions.
In a joint communiqué published yesterday, Hussen said, "Arafat's wickedness has reached the extreme limit of what humanity can bear, and … it is time for that murderer of Jews, of Christians and of Muslims, for the man who has been spreading terror on the face of earth, to pay the final bill for his numberless crimes."
"We ask Prime Minister Sharon not to move a step back – as already happened before – since [setting] that criminal free again could only have the consequence [of making] Israel appear unsafe and weak," the communiqué said. "'Arafat' is at least entrapped, and it is essential that the only alternative is between executing, imprisoning or expelling him. Whichever option is chosen, the world must be assured that 'Arafat' will not able to shed blood anymore."
Palazzi has a distinguished history of defending Israel's right to exist. In an April 17, 2001, interview with WorldNetDaily, Palazzi said that right is even described in the Koran, the Muslim holy book.
"And thereafter we said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd,'" the Koran says in 17:104, The Night Journey.
The Italian cleric, who is also the Muslim co-chair of the Islam-Israel Fellowship of the Root and Branch Association – which promotes the study and practice of universal Jewish teachings – said much of what is known and written about Jews and so-called Palestinians is mythical.
He says one of the most common misconceptions in the current Arab-Israeli conflict is that in reality, "there is no such thing as a 'Palestinian.'
"There never was. It is a PR fiction, a Madison Avenue fantasy," he said.
Meanwhile, reports yesterday said the Bush administration was giving Arafat one last chance to renounce terrorism or risk losing any remaining American support.
"The message is: This is it. Last chance," said one unnamed U.S. official in Israel with Secretary of State Colin Powell, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Myths of the Middle East
By Joseph Farah
© 2000 WorldNetDaily.com
I've been quiet since Israel erupted in fighting spurred by disputes over the Temple Mount.
Until now, I haven't even bothered to say, "See, I told you so." But I can't resist any longer. I feel compelled to remind you of the column I wrote just a couple weeks before the latest uprising. Yeah, folks, I predicted it. That's OK. Hold your applause.
After all, I wish I had been wrong. More than 80 people have been killed since the current fighting in and around Jerusalem began. And for what?
If you believe what you read in most news sources, Palestinians want a homeland and Muslims want control over sites they consider holy. Simple, right?
Well, as an Arab-American journalist who has spent some time in the Middle East dodging more than my share of rocks and mortar shells, I've got to tell you that these are just phony excuses for the rioting, trouble-making and land-grabbing.
Isn't it interesting that prior to the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, there was no serious movement for a Palestinian homeland?
"Well, Farah," you might say, "that was before the Israelis seized the West Bank and Old Jerusalem."
That's true. In the Six-Day War, Israel captured Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. But they didn't capture these territories from Yasser Arafat. They captured them from Jordan's King Hussein. I can't help but wonder why all these Palestinians suddenly discovered their national identity after Israel won the war.
The truth is that Palestine is no more real than Never-Never Land. The first time the name was used was in 70 A.D. when the Romans committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as Palestine. The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier. It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.
Palestine has never existed -- before or since -- as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.
There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.
But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.
What about Islam's holy sites? There are none in Jerusalem.
Shocked? You should be. I don't expect you will ever hear this brutal truth from anyone else in the international media. It's just not politically correct.
I know what you're going to say: "Farah, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent Islam's third most holy sites."
Not true. In fact, the Koran says nothing about Jerusalem. It mentions Mecca hundreds of times. It mentions Medina countless times. It never mentions Jerusalem. With good reason. There is no historical evidence to suggest Mohammed ever visited Jerusalem.
So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site of Islam? Muslims today cite a vague passage in the Koran, the seventeenth Sura, entitled "The Night Journey." It relates that in a dream or a vision Mohammed was carried by night "from the sacred temple to the temple that is most remote, whose precinct we have blessed, that we might show him our signs. ..." In the seventh century, some Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as being in Mecca and Jerusalem. And that's as close as Islam's connection with Jerusalem gets -- myth, fantasy, wishful thinking. Meanwhile, Jews can trace their roots in Jerusalem back to the days of Abraham.
The latest round of violence in Israel erupted when Likud Party leader Ariel Sharon tried to visit the Temple Mount, the foundation of the Temple built by Solomon. It is the holiest site for Jews. Sharon and his entourage were met with stones and threats. I know what it's like. I've been there. Can you imagine what it is like for Jews to be threatened, stoned and physically kept out of the holiest site in Judaism?
So what's the solution to the Middle East mayhem? Well, frankly, I don't think there is a man-made solution to the violence. But, if there is one, it needs to begin with truth. Pretending will only lead to more chaos. Treating a 5,000-year-old birthright backed by overwhelming historical and archaeological evidence equally with illegitimate claims, wishes and wants gives diplomacy and peacekeeping a bad name.
The Events at Joseph's Tomb in Nablus (8.10.00)The Tomb of the Patriarch Joseph is a recognized Jewish holy site, which also houses a yeshiva (a Jewish religious seminar). During the last few days massive shooting and attacks by Palestinians took place against the border policemen securing this site.
During these incidents a border policemen was wounded. The agreement between the IDF and the Palestinian security forces specified that it was the Palestinians' responsibility to evacuate the wounded policeman. The Palestinian forces could not evacuate the wounded policeman because of the heavy rioting at the site. As a result of the delay, the wounded Israeli policeman, Yusuf Madhat, died.
The shooting by Palestinians at Joseph's Tomb and the hindering of the evacuation of the wounded policeman are a violation of all international agreements and ad hoc understandings.
Since the signing of the Israeli-Palestinian interim agreements in Washington, in September 1995, the PA has been responsible for the security of the Jewish holy sites in Area A. The agreements also stated that joint patrols in the area would allow free access and safe use of the site, and Israel would also had the right to place guards inside the Tomb compound. The events are in clear violation of the PA's commitment in the Interim Agreement to protect the Tomb. The site was attacked with live fire, stones, and firebombs. Despite this, those present in the compound succeeded in withstanding the attacks, and stopped several attempts by armed Palestinians to break in.
Acting on the recommendation of the Chief of Staff and the Chief of the General Security Service, the Prime Minister (who is also the Minister of Defense), decided, on October 6, to temporarily evacuate Joseph's Tomb, leaving it under the protection and full responsibility of the PA. The decision to evacuate the Tomb was based on the desire of both sides to avoid bloodshed and lower the level of violence in the area.
The PA pledged to return the Tomb to its original state after the evacuation, and after the violence had settled down. They also pledged to look after the site and prevent any vandalism. This pledge was brazenly violated about two hours after the evacuation, when a Palestinian mob entered the Tomb compound and began to systematically destroy everything in sight, including all remnants of the yeshiva, the furniture, and books that were left behind. The Palestinian police failed to prevent this any of these violent activities, despite their pledge to guard the Tomb. The damage to this holy site resulted in the further escalation of the situation, which was already tense anyway.
These events are evidence of:
1. A flagrant violation of signed agreements;
2. A breach of confidence, following the pledge to protect the holy site, and to care for it after its evacuation.
3. The desecration of holy places, undermining the Palestinians' claim that they are the guardians of the holy places in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount (al-Haram al-Sharif).
The events at Joseph's Tomb clearly show that the Palestinians cannot be trusted to control events under their jurisdiction, despite signed and binding agreements to that effect. It is another example of their consistent violation of agreements, which can also be seen in the attack on the police station on Temple Mount.

|Harvard Study: Poverty Is Not the
Cause of Terrorism
09:47 Nov 26, '04 / 13 Kislev 5765
|A new study by a Harvard professor has found that terrorism is not caused by poverty – thus further undermining the main premise behind international aid to Arabs of Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha).|
|The Harvard University Gazette reports that Alberto
Abadie, associate professor at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of
Government, “examined data on terrorism and variables such as wealth,
political freedom, geography, and ethnic fractionalization for nations that
have been targets of terrorist attacks ... Before analyzing the data, Abadie
believed it was a reasonable assumption that terrorism has its roots in
poverty, especially since studies have linked civil war to economic factors.
However, once the data was corrected for the influence of other factors
studied, Abadie said he found no significant relationship between a nation’s
wealth and the level of terrorism it experiences... (New York Sun, Nov.10,
Arab journalist Khalid Amayreh, himself from the Yesha region, has likewise written that it “is simply nonsense” to “claim that Islamic terrorism in Israel, as elsewhere, is the product of poverty, backwardness, and ignorance ... Islamic fundamentalism is not a product or by-product of poverty. Several studies have shown that a substantial majority of Islamists and their supporters come from the middle and upper socio-economic strata ... The fact that city-dwellers [in Judea-Samaria], who are generally more educated and better off economically, have consistently lent more support to Islamists refutes the widely held assumption that Islamist popularity thrives on economic misery.” (Jerusalem Post, Feb. 21, 1995)
Morton A. Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), commented: “Poverty is not the problem; hatred is the problem. An entire generation of Palestinian Arabs has been raised to hate Jews and Israel. Giving them American money will not solve the problem – in fact, it will have the opposite effect, sending a message to them that they need not change their ways. Like German society after World War II, Palestinian Arab society will require a lengthy and intensive period of de-Nazification, to wean them away from their hatred and violence. What they need is years and years of education towards peace, democracy, and coexistence. As long as the PA educates its people for hatred, in the official PA schools, summer camps, television, radio, newspapers, speeches, and religious sermons, peace will not be possible."
