Dalal Mughrabi is the celebrated terrorist who led the Fatah (Israel’s ‘peace’ partner) terror attack in 1978 that hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded more than 70.
Mughrabi now has a school named in her honor, where the students strive to follow in her terrorist footsteps.
It was inevitable that Muslims were going to blame Israel for the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370. American commentator, Dr. Kevin Barrett, paid by the Iranian government-owned Press TV, says Israel set up a false flag operation to blame the Iranians.

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday Washington was evaluating whether to continue its role in Middle East peace talks, signaling his patience with the Israelis and Palestinians was running out. Speaking during a visit to Morocco after a week of setbacks, Kerry said there was a limit to U.S. efforts if the parties themselves were unwilling to move forward. (Promises, Promises!)
Newsmax “This is not an open-ended effort, it never has been. It is reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be,” Kerry said, adding he would return to Washington on Friday to consult with the Obama administration.
U.S. officials say Kerry had been blindsided by recent Israeli and Palestinian moves that had compromised undertakings made when they launched the latest round of talks aimed at ending their enduring conflict last July. “They say they want to continue, neither party has said they have called it off, but we are not going to sit there indefinitely,” Kerry said, making his bleakest assessment yet of talks that he has dedicated a huge amount of energy to. (Good, get out and leave them alone)
The negotiations were catapulted into crisis at the weekend when Israel refused to act on a previously agreed release of Palestinian prisoners unless it had assurances the Palestinians would continue talks beyond an initial end-April deadline. (Maybe because it’s ALWAYS the Israelis who are being asked to give up something, never the Palis)
Kerry flew to Jerusalem to try to find a solution. Just when he believed a convoluted deal was within reach, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed 15 international treaties, making clear he was ready to beat a unilateral path to world bodies unless he saw more movement from the Israelis.
A senior Palestinian official, Nabil Shaath, told Reuters that Abbas had not intended to upset Kerry, but rather to shine a spotlight on Israel’s failure to release the prisoners. “I think (Kerry) will return because we have not abandoned the process,” said the veteran negotiator, speaking in Ramallah, the Palestinians’ administrative capital in the West Bank.
“We will continue these negotiations as we agreed, and I wish for once that America’s patience runs out — with Israel and not the Palestinians,” he added.
With both sides looking to blame the other for the impasse, Israel’s centrist finance minister, Yair Lapid, said he questioned whether Abbas wanted a deal, pointing to a lengthy list of Palestinian demands published on Maan news agency. These included lifting a blockade on the Gaza Strip, and freeing a group of high profile prisoners, including Marwan Barghouti, jailed a decade ago over a spate of suicide bombings.
“(Abbas) should know that at this point in time his demands are working against him. No Israeli will negotiate with him at any price,” said Lapid, one of the more moderate voices within Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightist coalition.
Kerry has spent much of his first year as America’s top diplomat invested in the Middle East peace process, and has visited the region more than a dozen times. The talks have struggled from the start, stalling over Palestinian opposition to Israel’s demand that it be recognized as a Jewish state, and over the issue of fast-growing Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Palestinians want an independent state in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem — lands captured by Israel in the 1967 war. While all parties say negotiations are the best path to peace, Palestinians say they may eventually resort to international bodies to force Israel to make concessions.
One of America’s elite universities became the focus of attention today as photos emerged showing students engaging in support for international terrorism. The two students, identified as Fadi AbuNe’meh and Taka Yamaguchi, were apparently leading activists with the campus chapter of J Street U, an organization that describes itself as “pro-Peace.”
See links below for background on J Street:
The Tower An especially vibrant part of the group’s peace activism, apparently, includes wearing T-Shirts that say “Resistance is Not Terrorism,” and sport a picture of Leila Khaled, a notorious PFLP terrorist who hijacked airplanes in 1969 and 1970, caressing an AK-47.
The allegations broke this morning when photos were discovered of the two students wearing the shirts at an event sponsored by J Street U last April. In coverage of the event, AbuNe’meh is quoted as a representative of the group.
In AbuNe’meh’s Facebook postings, shown below, when asked where they acquired the shirts, he pointed to a vicious anti-Israel website called existenceisresitance.org. That website also offers shirts with a map of the entirety of Israel drawn in with a keffiyeh pattern and the caption “Un-Occupy,” calling for the elimination of Israel as a whole. The site describes the shirts explicitly as showing a picture of Leila Khaled. (‘J Street,’ a far left Jewish pressure group, not only includes Muslim members, it is also sponsored by several Muslim groups – See video Below)
It is worth noting that another student, Elisabeth Housman, who is listed here as “liking” the pro-terror photo, is also listed on the local campus Hillel website as the official contact person for J Street U on campus.
The second student in the photo, Yamaguchi, was described as the moderator of the event. He has gone on record advocating for the ”full right of return” of Palestinians to pre-1967 Israel. “In some ways,” he has written, “the essence of being Palestinian today is the right of return itself: what we lost, and what we fight to regain.”
Neither student was apparently available to respond to the accusations, as both seem to be off campus this year. As of this writing, both list “Ramallah,” in the Palestinian Authority, as their current city of residence on what appear to be their Facebook pages.
Washington University’s J Street U branch came under fire recently this week for sponsoring an event for the discredited anti-IDF group “Breaking the Silence.”
There has been increasing coverage of late of anti-Israel activism on America’s campuses, especially in support of the boycott (BDS) movement that Canadian Prime Minister recently called “a mutation of the old disease of anti-Semitism.” The ease with which boycott support slides into terror support is apparently going to deepen these concerns.
Washington University at St. Louis is ranked 14th among American universities by U.S. News & World Report.

The Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum on Thursday came out loaded for bear against yet another malicious propaganda campaign targeting Israel on the popular social network Facebook. The campaign appears to center around a composite picture of six dilapidated local churches that are presented as false evidence that the Jewish state discriminates against and seeks to remove Christians from the Holy Land.
Israel Today Such notions have undergirded a new Evangelical Christian movement that paints Palestinian Christians as the suffering Jesus to Israel’s strong-armed Romanesque oppressor.
The first lie the Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum (a growing movement of Arabic-speaking Christian natives) takes on is that in 1948, Jewish forces swept through the land with the aim of eradicating all Christians, along with the Muslims.
Israel Arab Christians protest in support of Israel
“To our great disappointment, in 1948 David Ben Gurion wanted the Christians to stay and join the defense of the State of Israel, but the Christians failed to be forward-thinking and instead cowered in fear behind the Arab militias or tried to stay out of the conflict all together,” the group wrote on its own Facebook page.
The forum noted that the local Druze residents “initially fought against Israel, but ultimately switched sides, saving their villages and their people.”
Arab Christians are enlisting in the IDF in ever greater numbers
Among the other fallacies listed is the idea that surrounding Arab nations are “paradise” for Christians compared to the “hell” of living in what many try to portray as the “apartheid state” of Israel.
To this, the forum responded: “If Israel is hell and the Arab state are paradise, then we as Christians with Aramean roots say that our religion is actually rooted in Judaism, [so] we prefer to remain in the ‘hellfire of the State of Israel.’ We invite the rest of you to take a one way trip to Syria or Iraq where you will be warmly welcomed as Arab Christians by [various terror groups], or to Gaza where Hamas will surely love you well.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Greek Orthodox priest Rev. Gabriel Naddaf in Jerusalem. Naddaf advocates on behalf of integration by Arab Christians, or Arab-speaking Christian Israelis, into Israel’s mainstream.
The group also addressed the ongoing spate of Jewish vandalism against primarily Christian targets, calling it the actions of a small group of racists who first and foremost are harming Israel’s image, and reminding everyone that the so-called “price tag” attackers have yet to kill or injure a single person.

Pro-Israel students at Chicago’s Loyola University are mobilizing a response to the Students for Justice in Palestine-sponsored Israel divestment resolution passed by the school’s student government last week.
Algemeiner The resolution, which passed 26-0 with two abstentions March 18, urges the university administration “to withdraw investments from eight corporations complicit in Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories, including Caterpillar, SodaStream, Veolia, and Hewlett-Packard.”
Most importantly, Loyola University officials have distanced themselves from the student-led resolution, stating, “Loyola University Chicago has NOT adopted a resolution calling for the University to withdraw or refrain from investing in certain companies providing products and services in Israel… This is not the position of Loyola University Chicago and we will not adopt this proposal.”
