Jewish media tried to describe it as a victory that Pres. Obama betrayed his 2010 promise to support a UN vote for Palestinian statehood. They gave the impression that the international community now backs Israel’s demand for renewed Israel-Palestinian negotiations not a Palestinian seat at the UN. This impression was reinforced by Congress’s resolution last week that $200 million in aid will stop if the Palestinians hold to their bid for statehood.
Yet sympathy for the Palestinian cause erupted dramatically last week in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) executive board. Of its 58 members, 40 voted in favor a Palestinian seat in the UN. Fourteen abstained and only four voted against it (including the US). As this proves, political backstabbing against the beleaguered Palestinians will not diminish their case. Obama’s treachery may well fuel the flames of worldwide righteous indignation against the Jewish state. The Palestinians are almost certain to be defeated in the upcoming UN Security Council vote. Yet the UNESCO vote provides a dramatic straw poll of potentially overwhelming support for their position. Should a vote also be submitted to the UN General Assembly, estimates say 120 to 150 nations will vote in favor of Palestinian statehood.
Meanwhile Israel, deeply mired in international disfavor because of her crimes against the Palestinians, seems paralyzed—unable to do anything that could revive even a hint of the idealistic admiration it once accepted as its right. The Israeli government’s attention is actually drawn away from international “anti-Semitism” by the threat of nearly out-of-control violence and insubordination among its militantly anti-Palestinian ultra-Orthodox settlers.
The “haredi” are inflamed by rabbinic authorities who now sanction destruction of Palestinian property and even murder of innocent Palestinians. (See, Homicidal Rabbi Finds Wide Support in Israel) Their Ultra-Orthodox followers are a loose cannon of bad press, scandal and disgrace for Israel. A Ha’aretz article recently headlined, “A Racist, Messianic Rabbi is the Ruler of Israel.” A previous article said the Haredi in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are now a distinctly separate legal and political system unto themselves, beyond effective restraint from Tel Aviv. Recently they have vandalized two mosques and, in a nighttime raid, destroyed or uprooted two hundred Palestinian olive trees so vital to the struggling Palestinian economy. This has forced Prime Minister Netanyahu, as well as ADL, to castigate fellow Israelis, not the goyim—a welcome change!
Officers serving in the West Bank have reported recently that tensions between security forces and settlers are on the rise. According to one senior office, ‘the security forces spend more time dealing with incidents involving Israeli citizens than confronting Palestinian terrorism.’
The Gush Shilo area has recently become one of the main friction points between Israeli security forces and settlers. Over the past few weeks, settlers have been attacking Palestinian farmers’ property in the nearby village of Qusra, almost on a daily basis. On Thursday morning, villagers discovered some two hundred olive and fig trees were uprooted or damaged throughout the night.
According to a recent Shin Bet security service report, right-wing extremists no longer appear to need a trigger to take action, while the targets of the violence are also widening—military vehicles at an IDF base near Ramallah have been vandalized and threatening graffiti was sprayed onto the apartment door of a left-wing activist. Attacks on Arabs and their property are carried out when the opportunity arises, the Shin Bet officials add. (A recent version of this article adds, “IDF data indicates that, over the last year, most incidents of settler-Palestinian violence in that area were indeed perpetrated by settlers, hitting a peak with last month's torching of the Qusra mosque.”

“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at Truthtellers.org if it starts to move forward.

If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
