"The planned construction is in neighborhoods that will be part of

PM: Where is Outrage as Hamas
Openly Seeks Our Destruction? Arutz Sheva
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met
with representatives of the foreign media in Israel on Monday,
denouncing the hypocrisy that has come to dominate the international
community’s handling of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
"This weekend Hamas leaders openly
called for Israel's destruction. Where was the outrage? Where was the
UN? Where was Abbas?” Netanyahu demanded. “Why did Palestinian
diplomats not only remain silent in the face of these calls, but spoke
of the intention to unite with Hamas?”
“There was only deafening silence,”
asserted the prime minister.
“We cannot accept that the
international community has no problem denouncing Israeli intentions of
building Jewish homes in the nation's historic capital of Jerusalem but
remains silent as Palestinian leaders openly call for Israel’s
destruction,” Netanyahu said.

1. Judea and Samaria (Jewish roots) or West
Bank (Arab roots)?
“Judea” (יהודה) is the origin of the term “Jew”
(יהודי). Its Hebrew spelling combines one of God’s names: Jehova (יהוה)
and one of God’s acronyms: ד'. Judea and Samaria are the cradle of
Jewish history, religion, culture, holidays, ethos, language and
yearnings. The official name of the area was "Judea and Samaria" from
Biblical times until April 1950, when Jordan occupied/annexed the area,
renaming it "West Bank," as distinguished from the east bank of the
Jordan River. Judea and Samaria was the official name used by the
1922-1948 British Mandate of Palestine, as well as by the U.N.
2. Are Jewish settlements in Judea and
Samaria an obstacle to peace?
Jewish settlements were established in Judea and
Samaria after the 1967 War. However, it was pre-1967 Arab terrorism
which annihilated the Jewish communities of Hebron, Gush Etzion and
Gaza and raged in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the Galilee during the 1920s,
1930s and 1940s — [continue.....]
Thursday, Nov. 29, the

direct negotiations with Israel.”

is quoted in Mark 12:28-29: "One of the teachers of the law came

O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your

In a related

of Israel (Article 13) and the use of terrorism as an essential element
in the struggle to achieve this aim (Article 19). As with the quotes
reproduced below (and to which dozens more could be added), it belies
the fiction that Mahmoud Abbas is a ‘moderate’ who seeks peace with
Israel, and who wishes to end Palestinian terrorism against Israeli
Jews. It also makes clear that the principles of Yasser Arafat are
respected and promoted."

What should Israel do?
Yoram Ettinger Dec. 3, 2012
The November 29, 2012 U.N. vote to upgrade the Palestinian Authority to
a “nonmember observer state” — in violation of the 1993 Oslo Accords —
was an expected derivative of Israel’s policy toward the PA since 1993
— critical concessions, retreats, indecisiveness, submission to
pressure and appeasement.
What has Israel done since 1993?
Israeli concessions — such as the legitimization, importation and
arming of 60,000 Palestinian terrorists from Sudan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya,
Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Tunisia and the evacuation of the Gaza Strip
and 40 percent of Judea and Samaria — resulted in unprecedented
Palestinian hate-education and incitement, terrorism and noncompliance.
flabbier the Israeli policy and the frailer the Israeli response to
Palestinian terrorism, the more flagrant is the Palestinian abrogation
of agreements. For instance, 270 Israelis were murdered by Palestinian
terrorists between 1978 and the 1993 signing of the Oslo Accords,
compared with some 2,000 murdered since Oslo, mostly by PLO terrorists.
In 2000, Prime Minister Barak offered to uproot all Jewish settlements;
Mahmoud Abbas and Arafat responded with an unparalleled wave of suicide
bombings in the pre-1967 area of Israel. Prime Minister Sharon’s 2005
uprooting of 25 Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria and Gaza
induced an unprecedented barrage of missiles on pre-1967 Israel.
Israel’s inaction in the face of the 2009-2012 amassing of long-range
missiles in Gaza triggered a daily barrage of missiles at pre-1967
