Palestinians threaten Australia after East Jerusalem announcement
Seek “review [of] the relations of the Arab and Islamic world with Australia”
We wrote about how Australia just made an enormous contribution to the Middle East peace process by refusing to refer to East Jerusalem as “occupied” territory.
Australia is historically and legally correct. “East” Jerusalem was illegally seized and occupied by Jordan during Israel’s War of Independence, and the Jewish residents ethnically cleansed. Its recapture by Israel was simply returning the territory to its rightful owner.
The reason that Australia’s announcement was important, I wrote, was:
Because the history of Middle East peace negotiations is the refusal to speak the truth to the Palestinians, and instead, to cower at false claims of illegal occupation and Apartheid. Such diplomatic cowering, evidenced by John Kerry’s futile shuttle diplomacy, simply encourages even more unreasonable and unrealistic Palestinian demands.
If peace ever is to be achieved, it will be when the Palestinians accept that they can get no more from international boycotts and pressure than they can get through direct negotiations and meaningful concessions. The Australian announcement brought that moment a little closer.
True to form, Palestinian Authority through one of its most senior leaders and negotiators is calling for the Muslim world to reevaluate ties to Australia, as reported by The Times of Israel, PA to seek wider Arab reprisal against Australia:
The Palestinian Authority intends to lobby Arab and Muslim countries to reevaluate relations with Australia after Canberra announced last week that it would stop referring to East Jerusalem as “occupied” territory, a senior PA official wrote in a letter to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
“Palestine will request that the Arab League and the Islamic Conference [Organization of Islamic Cooperation] review the relations of the Arab and Islamic world with Australia in light of Australia’s unlawful recognition of the illegal settlement regime in occupied Palestine,” Saeb Erekat wrote in the letter, dated June 5.
The Palestinian Ma’an News Agency confirmed the threat.
I hope Australia stands strong. And others join it.

Aussie Aussie Aussie!!! Oi Oi Oi!!!!
They don’t need Oz to create murder and mayhem wherever they go.
It’s what they do: threaten and inflict death and mayhem. What a bunch of juveniles, still being controlled by violent passions and hatred. Most of us grow out tof hat stage, if we were ever there.
These people should be mocked without mercy.
“What a bunch of barbarians…”
so they want to attack Australia…
yeah, that’s gonna end well. and, if they do so literally, my money’s on the Diggers. especially their SAS lads, who are definitely world class.
and, since the Kiwi’s usually join in the fun with Oz, it would be awesome to see this being done in what’s left of a street in Gaza or some other Paleostinian hell hole, after the sorting out was done.
We need a President who will do the same – AND recognize Jerusalem as the legitimate and permanent capital of Israel.
Nothing would truly promote peace in the immediate area more than an American President who tells the Palestinians and other Arabs,
“If you wish to be treated like civilized people, ACT like civilized people. If you continue to behave as murderous barbarians, you will henceforth be treated as such.”
And then entertain no high-level meetings with anyone from the PA until they show some progress towards rejoining decent society.
No more foreign aid either. Islamic countries regard foreign aid as jizya, the poll tax to be paid so the won’t make war on us. Still, they do it by funding terrorism and by exporting their people to wage legislative jihad so sharia can be implemented in host countries.
The Conservative PM Stephen Harper of Canada and Liberal Party (the small C conservative party in Australia) PM Tony Abbott of Australia once again demonstrate that conservative AND religious voters are the faithful friends of Israel.
No one’s interests are served when we pretend the facts are different from the truth. Where else are parties to a negotiation expected to pretend progress is being made when one party repeatedly walks away from the table?
In any other scenario if 1 side leaves the table during discussions the other party moves further TOWARD their own territorial goals. Nowhere else do we see the strong party hold back from incorporating their militarily-secured land gains AFTER being attacked.
The only incentive that can be forced on a hostile party is for them to see their pie shrinking whenever THEY delay. Over and over Israel returns legitimate territory to show good faith only to see more war, terror, and extremism.
Yes. The Liberal Party consists of people who are classical liberals. They are conservative in outlook, but not everyone is conservative. Malcolm Turnbull is one example of someone who is a member of the Liberal Party but who is not really conservative.
Tony Abbott is da man!! Tony Abbott does in fact work out and he is a triathlete, as well as being a volunteer for the surf lifesaving movement and the fire brigade. There is nothing girlishness about the way that Tony Abbott rides a bicycle. Also he would not look ridiculous working out with weights inside a gym, like the girly man.
Every Muslim middle eastern country has been guilty of ethnic cleansing of Jews.
But of course ethnic cleansing is only a crime against humanity if done by white Europeans.
They are up against Julie Bishop. She is truly a good and firm woman.
Think of the net benefit to Australia: no more Muslims immigrating, and maybe many emigrating. That will certainly contribute to the reduction of gang rapes of Aussie girls by Muslim men.
You wish… we wish…..
Australia has been a popular destination for some very unstable people.
There has not been a reduction in gang rapes, or rapes by one Muslim man. In fact there is at the present time an increase in incidents where women are being sexually assaulted. The last one to be arrested was a Pakistani on a visitors’ visa!!
The big issue for us has been the illegal entrants who have been attempting to evade the proper procedures to enter Australia as a migrant. They have been paying large sums of money to people smugglers and have risked their lives by getting on leaky boats. More than 1000 have been lost at sea over the period in which the ALP/Greens had control of Australia.
Within a few months of winning the last election, the Coalition has been able to “stop the boats”… many boats have been turned around and this serves as a deterrant to some extent. The next step is for Indonesia and Malaysia to take steps against these “migrants”, and either send them packing or at least find and arrest the people smugglers.
Our welfare system has made it easy for the illegal immigrants to exist in Australia without having to do any work. I do think that the legal migrants from such countries do in fact want to earn an income, and I do think that they need incentives to work than to accept welfare.
Advocate for laws that:
A. Deport people, and the extended families of same, who commit crimes, especially rape, after imprisonment with hard labor and the cat (they understand Peter pays for Paul and Paul pays for all justice).
B. Seize property and all assets of the criminal and his entire extended family and give them to the victim (Muslims like to give money to the family of other Muslims they kill. Being draconian helps when you’re dealing with barbarians inside your gates).
C. Sentence Islamic rape and honor crime criminals to time with hard labor and the cat, no luxuries, and just enough provender to sustain the body. After, deport them all.
D. Deprive them of any access to the Koran and situate them so their butts are to Mecca, no matter how they turn.
E. Deny all aliens access to welfare and other benefits that are provided by Oz taxpayers. They should not need incentive to work for work us the natural condition of man. If they need incentive, it is thus: you don’t work and pay takes, go home.
I make these recommendations as an immigrant citizen of the USA, from an immediate family which has taken nothing from Uncle Sam that we did not pay for and whose constant song has been “God bless America!”
