LATMA: Bibi's coalition blues and Yair Lapid's hangover


Dutch MPs: Fire Richard Falk
MPs appalled by statements of UN Special Rapporteur comparing Hamas to WW2 Resistance.
"They reproached Falk for a “total lack of insight” and called his words “sickening."

Censored by Facebook, Arab-Israeli Journalist Continues to Expose PA Corruption
"One of the first Israeli papers Abu Toameh wrote for was a Hebrew publication called Yerushalayim (or Jerusalem). “At that time, I wrote articles criticizing Israel, and the IDF in particular, for various human rights violations, and I won several awards. Of course now that I am criticizing the Palestinian Authority, I am roundly condemned,” he said.
Abu Toameh is not only condemned but is often threatened. “Today, I am getting more threats from the US, Canada, Europe and the UK than I am from within the Palestinian Authority,” Abu Toameh said.
“But what is unique, is that those that threaten me roundly acknowledge that I am telling the truth,” he said. “They don’t question my reporting. They just want me to shut up. I’d be much more afraid of what could happen to me if I were lying,” Abu Toameh stated."

Israelly Cool: Richard Silverstein Defends Blood Libel Cartoon

PMW: Fatah honors suicide bomber who killed 2 and injured hundreds on its official Facebook page
On the annual anniversary of the terror attack, the administrator of Fatah's Facebook page posted a picture of Idris and a long text describing her and her attack.
"The hero whose name the Zionists will remember well and so will Palestinians; the hero who sacrificed herself and her body for Palestine and became a symbol of the struggle and of Palestinian loyalty through one of the most honorable Martyrdom-seeking operations," the texts says about Wafa Idris.

The Anti-Defamation League, among others, believes the documents are authentic based on the wealth of detailed and private information included."

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
