Hamas's Gaza leader, Yahya Sinwar, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, a spokesman for the Islamist terrorist group, which runs the territory, said on Tuesday.He and all others harboring evil positions asked for it. They may not be clear about what's actually happening there beyond this news, but if he's in serious pain, that too is another something he deserves, along with if he goes to face the highest court.
[...] Sinwar, a former head of Hamas's security apparatus, became the organization's Gaza leader in 2017, six years after he was freed in a prisoner swap with Israel.
Gaza has logged nearly 21,000 coronavirus cases and 111 deaths.

The Likud Zion and Jerusalem Forum hosted a tour of Amichai and area localities by Likud member and former Jerusalem Mayor MK Nir Barkat.I'm glad he's gone to see what's taking place, and he is too. The PLO's illegal activities cannot be allowed to continue.
Barkat closely monitored the PA takeover of Area C and other areas and said for the first time that Israel could not abandon the area to the Palestinians.
"Symmetry should be applied in the open areas in both Area C and Area B. If we cannot build in the open area, the Palestinians cannot either," he declared.

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia - through his youth-focused MiSK charity - has purchased 33.3% of SNK, the developer behind King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug and more. MiSK has announced its intent to buy a total of 51% of shares, and take majority ownership.Aside from concerns that they could censor and obliterate whatever past players found appealing about their games for the sake of the Religion of Peace's beliefs, what's mainly offensive is the lack of moral compass on display here from SNK company executives themselves, permitting a man with such a repellent record of abuses to buy into their company...and potentially sell out to him altogether. If you care about the products of a company like SNK, you'll have to boycott them now in order to send a message. Demand that they buy back the stock they sold, among other things, and not sell ownership to such a monster and his still totalitarian Islamic regime. This is definitely a terrible day for anybody who liked to play King of Fighters, among other computer games made by SNK, in the past.
It's a move that's already causing controversy, given that the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has previously been directly implicated in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, accused of sending an assassination hit squad into Canada, and is the de facto leader of a country repeatedly lambasted for multiple human rights abuses.
The 33.3% of SNK shares were bought for approximately $216 million, valuing the full company at around £648 million.

Cross-posted here, "Thanksgiving Pardon for Retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn."
Leftists destroyed this man's life as a political vendetta. He was convicted on a "process" crime with no substantial underlying linkage to the allegations of electoral collusion with the Russians.
Now he's received a presidential pardon, but how does someone rebuild one's life --- a life of patriotism and exemplary national service --- after a diabolical ideological smear campaign like this?
Thank goodness for President Trump.
Background at NPR, "Trump Pardons Michael Flynn, Who Pleaded Guilty to Lying About Russia Contact, and at NYT (with fear and trepidation, lol), "Trump’s Pardon of Flynn Signals Prospect of a Wave in His Final Weeks in Office."
And for the analysis, see Grim's Hall, "Michael Flynn Pardoned":
It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 25, 2020
In a particularly grueling miscarriage of justice, retired general Michael Flynn had to be pardoned for a crime of which he was innocent. Investigated by the FBI at the behest of President Obama, who decided for some reason that Flynn was a Russian spy, Flynn was cleared of all charges as a result of the investigation. The FBI closed the case.
He was prosecuted anyway by a politicized Department of Justice, which nevertheless failed to produce the only piece of evidence it allegedly had against him. That evidence would have been the original "302" form showing that the FBI agents who interviewed him thought that he'd lied to them -- about a case in which the FBI had already cleared him. No such 302 was ever produced, allegedly being lost, but we do have one that we happen to know was edited long after the fact by disgraced liar and political agent Peter Strzok. We know this because he discussed it in unencrypted text messages with his lover, also-married disgraced former prosecutor Lisa Page.
After a financially ruinous prosecution in which the FBI/DOJ produced almost none of the exculpatory evidence that the law requires them to produce -- including the record of the investigation that completely cleared him on all charges -- Flynn's sorry lawyers convinced him to plead guilty. This was done in such a way that the DOJ and his sorry lawyers (perhaps motivated by one of their partners, a former Obama attorney general) made an illegal deal to hide the agreement not to prosecute Flynn's son from the judge! Not only did the judge lack the information he needed to discern whether the guilty plea was coerced, anyone against whom Flynn later might have testified as a result of the deal would have been denied their constitutional right to know of the deal so they could raise it as a defense against the value of his testimony.
That judge -- a personal friend of Obama's, it turns out -- wasn't upset about the fact that the law firm and the DOJ conspired to hide these facts from him in violation of the law. His ire was for Flynn, whom he accused of selling out his country even though the DOJ had never even attempted to charge Flynn with that. What they charged him with was perjury for "lying" to the FBI (in the vanished 302), and a paperwork violation for which the FBI investigation had already cleared him.
(They cleared him of the FARA violation because he had in fact filed paperwork with the government under another act, on the advice of lawyers he hired specifically to help him meet the legal reporting requirements -- thus, he had not tried to hide his lobbying work for a NATO ally, and clearly they could not s how criminal intent. DOJ knew all of that and made him plead guilty to it anyway, if he wanted them not to send his son to prison on trumped-up charges too.)
Then we spent a year while Flynn's new lawyer, Sidney Powell, managed to get all the exculpatory information illegally hidden from him in the first place. None of it convinced the judge one bit to let Flynn withdraw the coerced guilty plea, nor to accept the DOJ's determination that it should probably actually drop those baseless charges after all. Ordered to drop the charges by the DC Court of Appeals in a three-judge ruling, the judge instead sought en banc approval to continue the case. He was granted it, provided he would dispose of the matter with "dispatch." That was now several months ago, and instead of disposing of the case he has been dragging it out towards an obvious intent to sentence Flynn in spite of his innocence.
What this case shows is how completely distorted our system has become...Still more.

Saeb Erekat, the Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization and the top negotiator for the Palestinian Authority, died Tuesday morning. He was 65.This is why nobody should feel sorry for him. He was antisemitic, condoned murder of Jews, as occurred during the mid-90s in suicide bombings, and the whole notion the Israeli government would allow him to be hospitalized under their own systems when it's the PLO themselves who should be responsible for dealing with his medical matters angered families of victims of terorrism for valid reasons. Erekat's death couldn't have come soon enough, and deserved what he got in the end.
"Saeb Erekat passed away in the hospital's intensive care unit," Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital said in a statement Tuesday. [...]
During the early and mid-1990s, Erekat led the PLO’s negotiating team, and was a key player in the Oslo talks.
Erekat was a frequent critic of Israel, accusing Israel of “war crimes”, “massacres”, and “genocide”.
In 2013, Erekat accused Israel of applying a policy of apartheid in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.

Israeli actress Gal Gadot sparked controversy over the weekend after congratulating Democratic candidate Joe Biden for being elected as president of the United States, a gesture that did not go over well with supporters of President Donald Trump.I think she's just ensured I won't be particularly interested in checking out most of her movies going forward, and she does seem to have a very awkward perspective on many issues. She is not a "national treasure" in this country, and her desperate attempts to appease the US left certainly says something about her personality. Best way to send her a message is to avoid all her starring roles from this point onwards, and even the Cleopatra movie she's planning doesn't sound particularly interesting compared to Liz Taylor's film.
[...] While Gadot's post quickly gained over a million likes, there were many who took her to task, calling her a populist and accusing her of becoming a "Hollywood liberal who has forgotten what is good for her country."
[...] Israeli rapper and right-wing activist Yoav Eliasi, commonly known by his stage name "The Shadow," also criticized the move by Gadot on both Instagram and Facebook, Sunday.
"Gal Gadot made a big mistake … In order to ensure her future in Hollywood, she congratulated Biden and his vice president [-elect Harris] (who has promised to first thing bring back the PLO's offices to the US and the funding for the Palestinian Authority) but the Americans did not take it sitting down, and sent her hundreds of comments calling hypocritical and ungrateful, and how was she not ashamed to congratulate Biden after everything Trump had done for Israel. In short – disappointing."

As reported by Breitbart, the Tea Party Patriots are in action again as they were a decade ago to protest Democrats' efforts to rob the election from the Republicans. It's good they're back in action now, and should stand up to the thugs on the left who're destroying democracy as we know it.
BREAKING: Protect The Vote protests are SCHEDULED:— Jenny Beth Martin (@jennybethm) November 5, 2020

President Trump appeared in the East Room at around three a.m. on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning to express his disgust over how the votes just stopped being counted after it looked like he was winning in a number of swing states and on his way to securing a second term.What if they're taking the time to do some meddling behind the scenes in Biden's favor? I wouldn't put it past them. Trump predicted this was bound to happen, and no doubt, the Democrats are up to something. Trump may be planning now to go to court over this. I hope he does, if that's what it takes to combat this disturbing situation.
Standing before a group of supporters in the White House, Trump listed the states he needs to win, how well he was doing in them, and said, “We won states and all of a sudden, what happened to the election? It’s off. … All of a sudden everything just stopped. This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”
“We were getting ready to win the election, frankly, we did win this election.”
Trump spoke specifically about swing states where he enjoys a sizable margin with much of the vote already counted. This includes Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where it was announced the vote counting would cease, in at least a few of these states, until tomorrow.
In some cases, the counting continues but the media refuse to call the race.
But there have been reports about cities such as Philadelphia and Atlanta giving up their counting for the night. They intend to resume in the morning.
However things turn out, though, I do know this: when you have a situation as bad as states like New York, California and Oregon have now, what with anarchy, violence, arson and vandalism going on, committed by Antifa and BLM hoodlums while authorities in those states are either lenient on the offenders, or prohibited by higher echelons from doing their job to stop them, democracy as we know it is in a very unhealthy situation, and for all we know, this whole situation could eventually lead to the collapse of those states for starters. Of course, those residents of the 3 aforementioned states who voted for the Democrats despite supposedly being disturbed by all the violence going on cannot claim they were concerned, if they remain glued to the very same party and ideology till the bitter end of time.
Update: Trump's announced they'll be going to the Supreme Court:
After talking for several minutes about victories that the campaign had secured and races where the campaign believed that things were still looking good, Trump called out how vote counting had seemingly stopped in critical races that had not been called yet.Definitely. That it's gotten to a point where corruption reigns horrifically on the left, along with their loss of moral compass, is simply terrible.
“And all of a sudden everything just stopped,” Trump said. “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”
“So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in the proper manner,” Trump continued. “So we will be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list. OK? It’s a very sad, it’s a very sad moment.”
Also: a major error was found in Arizona's results, which strongly suggests there's rigging going on there.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar, saying that “she doesn’t belong in our party” in a September video, according to the Star Tribune.Well that's good he's admitting now that somebody who made offensive comments minimizing the 9-11 attacks doesn't belong in their party. There's no telling if he'll be reelected though in such a polarized atmosphere that the Democrats are largely responsible for leading to. Of course, the real concerns is whether Omar herself will be reelected, and if she is, that's very bad. The damage she's caused in her own way is very serious.
His comments came in response to an operative for the National Republican Congressional Committee, who asked Peterson why he defended Omar after she said that “some people did something,” referring to the 9/11 attacks. The video was first obtained by the New York Post.

Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), the PLO’s Department of Public Diplomacy and Policy announced Monday.And it looks like there was a Hamas member who also got it:
Ashrawi, 74, tested positive for COVID-19, and all her official engagements and scheduled events have been postponed.
Ashrawi is the second senior PLO official to contract the virus.
Similarly, Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri was also infected with the virus earlier this month.It couldn't have happened to more deserving people, that's for sure.

Senior Palestinian Liberation Organization official Saeb Erekat has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the longtime Palestinian diplomat said on Thursday night.What if it's worse than what's being reported? You can never be sure if taqqiya specialists like these are actually being truthful. This is in contrast to reports about Donald and Melania Trump's state of health following their infection with Corona, from which they've since recovered.
Erekat is currently in isolation in his house in the West Bank city of Jericho, and has canceled all his appointments until he recovers from the virus. He has experienced light coronavirus symptoms, including a fever.
One of the architects of the Oslo peace accords, Erekat has been the PLO’s chief negotiator since 1995. Erekat has led numerous rounds of peace talks with Israel for over two decades and continues to play a central role in Palestinian politics.Erekat also enabled many terrorist attacks in the past quarter century. If he succumbs to Covid19, he'll deserve it. That the Times of Israel chose to gloss over his crimes is shameful.
Erekat is considered to be at high risk for complications from the virus. He survived both a mild heart attack in 2012 and a 2017 lung transplant after years of suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, a condition which scars the lungs and damages their ability to circulate oxygen.

The international science journal "Molecules" canceled the publication of a study by Dr. Mindy Levine from Ariel University after she refused to erase the word "Israel" in the address of the university, according to Israeli activists.Most offensive is that the head of the journal's board insulted the lady:
The study was originally meant to be featured in the journal's January 2021 edition. Levine marked the address in the study as "The Department of Chemical Sciences, Ariel University, Ramat HaGolan 65, Ariel, Israel."
A group of chemists from around the world complained to "Molecules" that Ariel is located in occupied territory and not in Israel. The group is led by Prof. George Smith, winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Prof. Malcolm Levitt, a Fellow of the Royal Society. The group asked the journal to change the address to say "Ariel University, illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, Occupied Palestinian Territory," according to the Palestinian No Academic Business as Usual with Ariel University initiative.
After the complaint was issued, the editors of "Molecules" asked Levine to remove the word Israel from the address at the head of the study, but Levine refused and the journal cancelled the publication of the study. [...]
“Molecules has put politics over science," said Professor Eugene Kontorovich, Director of International Law at the Jerusalem-based Kohelet Policy Forum, in response to the event. "It requires all authors to provide a mailing address; whatever one thinks of the politics, 'Ariel, Israel' is indeed the correct mailing address, as one can discover by sending a letter. The purpose of a contact address to allow communication with the author has been turned into a geopolitical judgement by chemists unqualified to make it.”
“Papers from authors in other contested areas have been published without any insistence on any 'legally correct' description," he continued. "Now Molecules must revises its policies for several territories, or stick with a Jewish-only double standard."
"Scientists are obligated to be precise with facts - this is a basic and self-evident duty for all chemists as in any other science. The publication of the address 'Ariel, Israel' at the head of an article would constitute a blatant and obvious factual distortion to any eye, and would call into question the factual credibility of all the research that followed it," added Keller. "It is a pity that a talented and active researcher, who gained a reputation in the American universities where she lectured and engaged in research, chose to move to a university in occupied territory and thus cast a heavy shadow on the continuation of her scientific work."I'd say this is reason enough to boycott the journal, seeing as this is an Orwellian "scientist" who only believes selectively in facts. And clearly sees nothing wrong with lecturing the lady over where she should work. All concerned should withdraw cooperation with Molecules, if these are the kind of people they're going to associate with.
The White House released photos on Saturday night that showed President Donald Trump working hard while being confined to Walter Reed Medical Center following his coronavirus diagnosis late this week. [...]Trump is definitely an amazing man, seeing how he's capable of continuing to research paperwork while in hospital undergoing medical exams.
White House physician Sean Conley, D.O., released a statement on the president’s health late on Saturday night, noting that the president has made significant improvements over the last couple of days.
“President Trump continues to do well, having made substantial progress since diagnosis,” Conley wrote in a statement. “This evening he completed his second does of Remdesivir without complication. He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98% all day.”
“He spent most of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” the statement continued. “While not yet out of the woods, the team remains cautiously optimistic.”
“The plan for tomorrow is to continue observation in between doses of Remdesivir, closely monitoring his clinical status while fully supporting his conduct of presidential duties,” the statement concluded.

The 19th anniversary of 9/11 has been the nation’s darkest in this dreaded cycle.Read the rest to see how disturbing things have become. If Joe Biden's elected, it's bound to get worse with all this horrific political correctness running amok. It's absolutely stunning how the country became desensitized to violence, to the point where barbarism as practiced by al Qaeda was legitimized by the leftists. This is why this is one of the saddest moments in the history since the turn of the century.
The Black Lives Matter riots that attacked the statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, and Abraham Lincoln, did not spare 9/11 memorials.
The statue of a police officer was beheaded and toppled in Plymouth, MA at a 9/11 memorial honoring those who had died in the attacks. But the 2,000 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center proved beyond the ability of the vandals to topple.
When Black Lives Matter racists defaced statues and memorials in the Boston Common, including the ‘Glory’ regiment, they didn’t spare the 9/11 memorial in the Public Garden.
A 9/11 memorial honoring five fallen firefighters was defaced and the American flagpole was cut down in Washingtonville, NY,.There was also vandalism at the Decatur, IL memorial site, and a red, white and blue rearing horse 9/11 memorial in Rochester, NY was smeared with red paint.
Beyond the radical attacks on the monuments of September 11 were the attacks on its heroes.
The NYPD has suffered its worst days since 9/11 with over 400 officers injured in the BLM riots. Police and firefighters went from the heroes of a nation to being smeared as soulless monsters.
“I could see no difference between the officer who killed and the police who died, or the firefighters who died,” Ta-Nehisi Coates, an intellectual godfather of Black Lives Matter, wrote, “They were not human to me. Black, white, or whatever, they were the menaces of nature; they were the fire, the comet, the storm, which could — with no justification — shatter my body.”
“Between the World and Me”, the hateful tract in which Coates dehumanized the police officers and firefighters who had died trying to save people of all races and creeds, became a bestseller, was a Pulitzer finalist, and has repeatedly shown up on corporate anti-racism reading lists.
All of this makes commemorating September 11 into an awkward task that Democrats avoid.

The trial of 14 individuals accused of providing logistical support to the brothers Said and Chérif Kouachi who on January 7, 2015, murdered members of the staff of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, and Amedy Coulibaly, who two days later took hostages and killed customers at a kosher supermarket in Paris. The defendants face charges of participating in a terrorist criminal association.That's pretty amazing that, a number of years after CH foolishly stopped producing cartoons featuring Mohammed, now they're republishing some of those in focus again. What remains to be seen now, aside from that, is whether the justice officials will take a convincing position on both the tragedies involved, considering all the antisemitism and misogyny lurking around every nook and cranny of their system that so far led to the refusal to prosecute the murderer of Sarah Halimi. Only the death sentence can possibly ensure definite justice in cases like these.
On January 7, 2015, around 11:30 AM, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris, armed with rifles and other weapons. They killed 12 people and injured 11. The gunmen identified themselves as members of al-Qaeda. Two days later, their accomplice, Amedy Coulibaly, attacked the Hypercacher kosher supermarket where he held 19 hostages and murdered 4, all Jews. The gunman was killed.
[...] On Wednesday, Charlie Hebdo republished the cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed in its new weekly edition. The editors suggested they were running the cartoon as evidence. They said the cartoon is “part of History, and one cannot rewrite History, neither can it be erased.”

An Israeli diplomat on Wednesday confirmed reports that Turkey is granting citizenship to a dozen members of the Hamas terrorist group.I'd say that's a confirmation of Turkey's anti-American standings coming to the fore. This is grounds for imposing more sanctions upon Turkey, now that they're not only taking steps hostile to Israel, but to the US as well. Under Erdogan, they really have taken a lurch to the dark side.
“Some are in the process, some already got (the documents), but we are talking about around a dozen,” Roey Gilad, chargé d’affaires at Israel’s embassy in Turkey, told the Reuters news agency.
Gilad said Israel has evidence of the phenomenon.
“We have already one document that we will present to the government in copy,” he said. “Judging by the last experience we had by presenting a well-based portfolio to the government… and getting no reply, I must say I don’t have high hopes that something will be done this time.”
Gilad asserted that the Hamas members receiving Turkish passports were financing and organizing terror operations.
Turkish President Recep Erdogan met on Saturday with a Hamas delegation that included politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh and the terror group’s No. 2, Saleh al-Arouri — a top military commander who has a $5 million US bounty on his head.

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will file for another hearing to discuss the possibility of demolishing the house of the terrorist who murdered IDF Sgt. Amit Ben Yigal after the Supreme Court forbade the destruction of the terrorist's house.While this is a positive step Mandelblit's taken, it still doesn't excuse his reprehensible conduct towards Benjamin Netanyahu, and that's why Mandelblit will still have to vacate the position he doesn't deserve.
In a statement on behalf of the attorney general, it was emphasized that the application would be submitted following the request of the political echelon on the issue, and after the attorney general presented to them his professional assessment in relation to the chances and risks involved in the application.
In the court's ruling, the demolition order was revoked. The court clarified that the military commander has the authority to act to seal the room where the perpetrator lived, but not to demolish the entire structure.
The attorney general's statement added that "the request for further hearing will be limited to the determination of the judgment in relation to the need for consideration of the family members living in the terrorist's house, and will not deal with general law regarding the use of demolition tools by terrorists for deterrence purposes."
MK Matan Kahana stated that he "welcomes the decision of the attorney general, who responded to my request and the request of many others and asked for a further hearing in the ruling given regarding the destruction of the house of the terrorist who killed Amit Ben Yigal."
"I will be there at the next hearing. I call on members of the Knesset to join me and attend the court hearing. Together, we will call on the judges to do justice and strengthen the IDF's deterrence," he added.

The Democratic Party was formed in 1792 as “…the White Man’s Party,” to serve the financial interests of Southern plantation owners. These wealthy overlords established a system which deprived Black slaves of their dignity, their families, and their civil rights. They were property, to be bought and sold, whipped, castrated, and lynched to enforce their brutal subjugation.Yet all this is obscured by virtually every phony among the left. It's truly sickening that the Democrat party continues to operate in Congress till this day.
Although Jefferson Republicans and others worked for the abolition of slavery, particularly in the new western territories, their efforts were always blocked in Congress by Southern Democrats, who refused to be persuaded by arguments of compassion and common human decency. Southern slave owners claimed to be acting with the approval of God, and their warped version of the Christian faith.
Islam was founded around 670 by Mohammed, and by some strange coincidence, his Allah “god” also sanctioned slavery. He had a lot in common with the Democrats of the Old South! This is what Allah commanded Mohammed in Sura 33:50: “Prophet, it is lawful for you to possess the wives for whom you have paid dowries, and the slave girls you have taken as the spoils of war.” The Koran clearly teaches that rape and slavery are divinely ordained. The Hadiths, which recount the deeds of Mohammed and his sayings, also instructed Muslims that having slaves was approved by their “god…” Mohammed was a prosperous slave owner.
Hadith Sahih Bukhari Vol. 7 #137 recounts that Muslim warriors took female slaves, and sexually abused them. Aisha, the six-year-old bride of Mohammed, whom he raped when she was nine, was reported to have said that Al-Abbas, a Muslim nobleman, had many slaves. (Sahih Bukhari 5-50)
And in our times, Muslims continue to trade in slaves, mostly Blacks from Sub-Saharan Africa. Open Doors, the U.N., and the Global Slavery Index, estimate that over 860,000 Blacks are slaves in Algeria, Libya, Mauretania, and Sudan. Their Arab masters control them with horrific brutality. These Black captives endure forced labor, sexual abuse, and soul-destroying degradation. Saudi Arabia is a prime market for slaves, and slave markets operate openly in many Saudi cities.
Palestinians on Sunday condemned Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado) for demanding that the US impose personal sanctions on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and other senior PA officials.I think the PLO's remorseless reaction is exactly why the sanctions against Abbas should be imposed immediately. Mainly because he himself is such a monster.
In a letter to President Donald Trump, Lamborn wrote that the Palestinian leadership “has continued to pay the terror rewards to terrorists, spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year to these monsters and their families.”
Lamborn was involved in initiating the Taylor Force Act, which was signed into law by Trump in 2018. It conditions US direct aid to the PA on the abolition of the PA’s payment of cash rewards to terrorists and their families.
“Since the passing of the Taylor Force Act, and a similar law in Israel’s Knesset passed by my friends MKs Elazar Stern and Avi Dichter in July 2018, the Palestinian leadership has spent over NIS 1.2 billion, or $350 million, continuing to reward terror,” Lamborn wrote. “Since the Palestinian leadership have publicly attacked the passage of the Taylor Force Act, rejected its terms, and continue rewarding terrorists and their families, the appropriate next step in the US war on terror is to personally sanction those PA/PLO officials involved in this incentivizing of terror, as defined by the law. While there are many senior Palestinian officials involved in the ‘pay for slay’ program, the institution and the person most responsible are the PA/PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and its Director Qadri Abu Bakr.”
Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Ministry on Monday presented data to the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs Committee on the proliferation of anti-Semitic rhetoric and conspiracy theories on social media networks like Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter.True, but it's hardly a surprise at this point. Zuckerberg's remained uncooperative with those wishing to combat the issue, and hasn't even proved convincing in dealing with content inciting violence, which is when antisemitism really becomes a problem. That's why there's just no point in using their systems at a time when alternatives are turning up, and no point in advertising on Facebook either.
The data was based on studies conducted by the ministry’s center for monitoring anti-Semitism and incitement on social media networks.
During the committee’s hearing Monday morning, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry provided examples of anti-Semitic comments on social media, in particular the rampant anti-Semitism found in many Arabic-language groups on Facebook.
In these Facebook groups, the ministry found numerous cases of Holocaust denial, blaming Jews for the Holocaust, classic anti-Semitism and newer forms of anti-Semitism.
Yogev Karsenti, the head of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry’s efforts to combat anti-Semitism, said that social media networks’ policies have made curtailing the spread of anti-Semitism online difficult.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Saturday said that 382 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in its territories, raising its total number of registered cases to 12,809, the Xinhua news agency reports.It's the PLO's own fault, of course. That's what happens when they embrace evils like antisemtism and jihadism.
The PA “ministry of health” said four citizens died of the virus, bringing the total deaths since March 5 to 77.
The ministry noted that recovered cases reached 3,741, leaving 8,991 active cases under medical observation.
Overall, 15 patients are currently in intensive care units, including three who are connected to respirators. [...]
After the easing of a previous coronavirus lockdown in late May, PA “health minister” Mai al-Kaila said the PA had entered a second wave of infections "more dangerous than the first".
