Teacher Fired for Telling Truth about Islam!


Skeletons- See No, Hear No & Speak No

On April 11 I shared my displeasure that Lamar Consolidated Independent School District (Lamar CSID) disciplined Foster High School social studies teacher Herby (Dale in FFA email – Herby in Houston Chronicle) Woolverton for passing out an eight page truth telling expose of the real Islam to his students. (You can the eight pages in entirety at the end of that post.)
 
Catching up on my email reading today I have discovered that Herby Woolverton has actually been fired! Why? Because CAIR Houston whined to the School Board that Woolverton misrepresented Islam ergo he disseminated racist Islamophobic material. As I pointed out in the April 11 post the content of the eight pages could be a summary of the Quran, Hadith, Sira and the Sharia Law still enforced in most Islamic dominated nations.
 
Ergo since Woolverton offended Radical Islamic CAIR Houston – a local affiliate of the national organization CAIR – the Lamar CSID fired their truth-telling teacher using the excuse that his teaching of the nature of Islam was not a part of the approved school curriculum.
 
This leads me to wonder if the Lamar CSID approved school curriculum shows medieval Christianity as a heinous blood thirsty faith in its relation to Islam which today still practices a medieval faith.
 
For example it has become politically correct to point out the gruesome atrocities committed by medieval Crusaders (which is the truth), BUT fail to relate atrocities committed by medieval Islam makes Crusader atrocities look like a picnic.
 
Did Crusaders loot and persecute Jews on their way to the Holy Land? Yes.
 
Did Crusaders loot, pillage and murder Eastern Orthodox Christians at the remnants of the Byzantine Empire in Constantinople? Yes.
 
Did Crusaders slaughter Jews in Jerusalem as much or more than Muslims when the Crusaders conquered Jerusalem? Yes.
 
YES, those were crazy unforgivable acts that Jews, Greek Orthodox and Muslims to this day are extremely angry with Christians in general.
 
The sudden hidden history by the politically correct FAIL to tell why the Crusades began in the first place!
 
What was left of the Byzantine Empire (once the Eastern Roman Empire) centered in Constantinople began to face enough existential threats from Muslims that they set aside their Eastern Orthodox vs. Roman Catholic disputes to appeal for help from the Kings of Europe. I’m not sure if it was Constantinople’s idea or the Catholic Clergy’s idea, but the message that was spread in Europe was that Muslims were slaughtering Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land yearning to walk where Jesus walked.
 
BUT prior to the Byzantine Emperor asking for help from Catholic Kings, Muslims had been invading Europe and constantly raiding European Mediterranean cities for booty, slaves and sex slaves.
 
Bill Warner shows the actual documented evidence about who was more vicious in the confrontations between Crusaders and Muslim Jihadists:

Islam is peace, said the Muslims as they wiped out pagans of Arabia. Invaded Egypt and subjugated the Coptic’s. Islam is peace they said to the Zoroastrians who fled to India. Islam is peace said the Muslims who burned greatest university of world Nalanda. Islam is peace said the Muslims as they slaughtered Hindus and Buddhists. Islam is peace said the Muslims as they slaughtered the Sikhs Armenians & Greeks. Islam is peace say the Muslims now as they. One should read of the genocide of Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs at the hands of Muslims. As they were not protected people according to the Quran. The Islamic propaganda today that Islam is peaceful and only retaliates when the west attacks its crusades today is a lie. Hindu and Buddhist India was attacked unprovoked and more than 80 million were killed during 11th-14th century by the Muslims according to conservative estimates.
 
Bill Warner’s video only addresses the incessant butchery of Islam toward Europe. Those European atrocities are darn evil, but the Islamic subjugation of the Indian subcontinent and its original civilization was so much worse that the slaughter of Hindi Indians even dwarfed the nefarious evil exacted on Christian Europe:
 
“But what of the conquest of India by Muslims”, asks Elst?
 
In other parts of Asia and Europe, the conquered nations quickly opted for conversion to Islam rather than death. But in India, because of the staunch resistance of the 4000 year old Hindu faith, the Muslim conquests were for the Hindus a pure struggle between life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and their populations massacred. Each successive campaign brought hundreds of thousands of victims and similar numbers were deported as slaves. Every new invader made often literally his hill of Hindu skulls. Thus the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000, was followed by the annihilation of the entire Hindu population there; indeed, the region is still called Hindu Kush, ‘Hindu slaughter’. The Bahmani sultans in central India, made it a rule to kill 100.000 Hindus a year. In 1399, Teimur killed 100.000 Hindus IN A SINGLE DAY, and many more on other occasions. Koenraad Elst quotes Professor K.S. Lal’s “Growth of Muslim population in India”, who writes that according to his calculations, the Hindu population decreased by 😯 MILLION between the year 1000 and 1525. INDEED PROBABLY THE BIGGEST HOLOCAUST IN THE WHOLE WORLD HISTORY. (Negat.34)
 
But the “pagans” were far too numerous to kill them all; and Hinduism too well entrenched in her people’s soul, never really gave up, but quietly retreated in the hearts of the pious and was preserved by the Brahmins’ amazing oral powers. Thus, realising that they would never be able to annihilate the entire Indian population and that they could not convert all the people, the Muslims rulers, particularly under the Hanifite law, allowed the pagans to become “zimmis” (protected ones) under 20 humiliating conditions, with the heavy “jizya”, the toleration tax, collected from them. (Negationism and the Muslim Conquests; By Francois Gautier; SaveIndia.com; The following is based on one of the chapters in the book Rewriting Indian History”; Amazon paperback published date – May 16, 2003)
 
AND from Bill Warner’s Political Islam blog:
 
Hindus
Koenard Elst in Negationism in India gives an estimate of 80 million Hindus killed in the total jihad against India. [Koenard Elst, Negationism in India, Voice of India, New Delhi, 2002, pg. 34.] The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad. The mountains near India are called the Hindu Kush, meaning the “funeral pyre of the Hindus.”
80 million Hindus
(Tears of Jihad; By Bill Warner; Political Islam; 3/3/08)
 
For more details on India it would be worth effort to read M. A. Khan’s “Islamic Jihad: A Legacy of Forced Conversion, Imperialism and Slavery”. You could the book as I did or read the pdf file at Islam-Watch.org.
 
Bill Warner’s “Tears of Jihad” post adds up the genocide of human beings by Muslims at 270 MILLION people! Warner actually lists 120 million African Christian deaths related to conquest but these deaths are largely due to starvation and disease of the remnants after providers were sent into slavery. In the Hindu case after people were enslaved (women and sex-slaves), the remnants were abjectly slaughtered oft times in horrible brutal ways.
 
I felt compelled to add this about the brutality of perpetrated on the Indian Subcontinent, but the point I was originally making in relation to the firing of the Houston area Texas High School teacher Herby Woolverton was fired for sharing the relevant up to date facts on Islam of modern times. That theopolitical religion is still medieval nuts even today. And Islam is nuts because of the commands inherent in the Quran, Hadith and Sira. AND the Lamar CISD still fired Herby Woolverton! DOES ANYONE ELSE SEE THE INJUSTICE OF SUCH ACTION?        
 
Below you can take action: the frankly lengthy email alert sent out by Florida Family Association which will include a path to writing your dissatisfaction with the Lamar CSID for firing a concerned school teacher just telling the truth about Islam.

Lamar school district appears to have forced teacher to resign

Lamar school district appears to have forced teacher to resign after CAIR protested that he distributed factual information about Islam to students.
 
Click here to send your email to urge the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District board members to reinstate the teacher.
 
To post your comments at Facebook Lamar CISD click here.
 
Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on April 12, 2015 titled CAIR leader who said “practicing Muslims are above the law” demands that Texas teacher be severely punished for distributing information about Islam.   The alert asked readers to send emails to encourage school district board members to show grace to the teacher and tolerance for open education.  The April 12, 2015 email alert is posted at the end of this alert.
 
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press release on April 7, 2015 titled CAIR-Houston Seeks Disciplinary Action for Teacher Who Promoted Anti-Muslim Hate in Class.  Foster High School teacher Dale Woolverton resigned less than twenty four hours later on April 8, 2015.   News reports that Mr. Woolverton had resigned were not published until late April 14, 2015, two days after Florida Family Association sent out the email alert.
 
Foster High School is governed by the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District (CISD.)  Florida Family Association’s email alert also informed the public that the school district was planning a regular school board meeting on April 14, 2015.
 
KHOU reported the following in part regarding the April 14, 2015 school board meeting:
 
Parents, students show support for former teacher in Muslim controversy
 
An 8-page handout titled “Islam/Radical Islam: Did You Know?” has ignited a firestorm in the Lamar Consolidated School District.
 
According to a district spokesman, the government teacher at Foster High resigned on April 8th just as the district was beginning its investigation
 
“What they don’t like is the facts getting out about Islam,” said Stan Horton, who supports the teacher.
 
“What he did was not wrong,” said Taylor Cyrus, who supports the teacher.
 
The outrage in the district is not against the teacher who gave the document to his students.
 
“We need more teachers like that,” said Kayleen Nelson, a parent of a student at Foster High. “We don’t need to run them off.”
 
The parents and students packed into Lamar CISD’s board meeting Tuesday night. They’re supporting the man at the center of the controversy.
 
“He’s taught me,” said Cyrus. “He’s taught many students.”
 
One by one, they took the podium in his defense.
 
Breitbart.com reported that many students, parents and friends attended the board meeting and asked for Mr. Woolverton to be reinstated.
 
ABC 13 News reported  On Tuesday night, Lamar CISD issued the following statement:
 
“We’re aware of one teacher who made an independent decision to provide information to students that didn’t follow subject matter, or state and local curriculum plans.  As soon as this issue was brought to the District’s attention, the administration addressed the situation with the teacher.  Ensuring our students have access to factual information, given in the proper context, is a priority in our District.  It’s important for the community to understand that we’re legally prohibited from commenting on the specifics of a student or staff issue.  The District is still investigating the matter.  The teacher submitted a resignation on April 8, once the District investigation began.”
 
It is highly unlikely that the Lamar CISD has forced every teacher to resign who in the past has handed out information that was not specifically authorized by the district.  It is also unlikely that the school district attempted to validate the information in all other past cases let alone investigate them.  Many education and non-profit organization leaders and millions of educated Americans believe that much of the information that Dale Woolverton distributed is true.

In this case, it clearly appears that the Lamar CISD was intimidated by the Council on American Islamic Relations’ tactics to extract pain from anyone who dares to speak the truth about Islam.  Lamar CISD officials rushed to judgement (sic) and forced Dale Woolverton to resign within twenty four hours of CAIR’s complaint.

It is truly disheartening to witness the Lamar CISD board demonstrate zero tolerance for Dale Woolverton just to satisfy CAIR’s Islamic code of conduct.  Their actions demonstrate the incivility of those who called for Mr. Woolverton’s firing and sends a dangerous message of censorship to any open education.

Mustafa Carroll, CAIR Houston executive director, announced during Texas Muslim Capitol Day in 2013 that “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”  See reports at Texas Tribune and Breitbart.com.
 
Now Mustafa Carroll is alleging that materials distributed by a Texas teacher should be grounds for dismissal because they allegedly violate school code.  CAIR Houston issued a press release regarding this issue which is posted at the bottom of this article.
  
 
“CAIR calls for resignation of Lamar consolidated ISD teacher,” by Amanda Gamez.
 
RICHMOND, Texas – A lesson taught within the halls of Foster High School has students talking outside the classroom.

In question is a lesson students say covered radical Islam, taught by a teacher they say is known to do things differently.

“No other teacher teaches like he does,” said Byron Randle, a student at Foster High School.

This time, though, his approach has ruffled feathers. Some even called it anti-Muslim.

The Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, believes the lesson was offensive.

CAIR said the teacher handed out a pamphlet that blasts the religion. One point labeled Muhammad a fake prophet. Another said Islam is not a religion.

“He’s been open about accepting everything,” said Jason Paul, a student of the teacher.

Supporters of the teacher in question say the point of the lesson was to show students a different viewpoint — one which they could take or leave.

“He wanted us to make our own opinion. Everything he gives us he wants us to make our own opinion. He’s like the one of the most neutral guys I know,” Byron Randle said.

“CAIR is calling for the teachers firing. What was untrue in the handout? Nothing — those numbers are based on a recent Pew poll.

Many education and non-profit organization leaders and millions of educated Americans believe that much of the information the teacher distributed is true.
 
Florida Family Association requested information from Julie Thompson, Lamar CSID in the email posted below.  Florida Family Association requested a copy of school district policies that govern educational materials distributed by school teachers and wanted to know many other school teachers have been disciplined under such policies this school year.  The Lamar CSID did not respond.

Dear Ms. Thompson,
 
We respectfully request the following information regarding the CAIR complaint about the teacher who circulated information pertaining to Islam and the Lamar CISD statement posted below.
 
·         Please provide a copy of the Lamar CISD written policy which specifically provides that a teacher may not make “independent changes to a lesson plan, resulting in information being given that didn’t follow subject matter, or state and local curriculum plans.”
 
·         Please provide a copy of the Lamar CISD written policy which requires any teacher to have any materials approved prior to distribution including any specific content guidelines.
 
·         Please provide a list of the dates and schools which this policy has been enforced during this school year.

CAIR HOUSTON PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
CAIR-Houston Seeks Disciplinary Action for Teacher Who Promoted Anti-Muslim Hate in Class

(HOUSTON, TEXAS, 4/7/15) – The Houston office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Houston) today called on officials at Foster High School in Richmond, Texas, to take appropriate disciplinary action against a teacher who allegedly passed out virulently anti-Muslim materials in class.
 
CAIR-Houston said the material seems to have been taken from an anti-Muslim site on the Internet and contained claims such as: “Muhammad posed as a prophet. . .Both Jesus and Paul warned that after they were gone many false prophets would come. Muhammad is simply one of them. . .”
 
Other misinformation included:
 
* “Islam is more of an ideology than a religion. It is also an ideology of war. . .”

* [Islam forces] its ideology on cultures and ultimately on the world through propaganda, subversion, and even physical force when it is deemed necessary, one area of the world at a time.”

* “You will either give into their demands recognizing Islam’s ‘noble’ rule, you will become a Muslim yourself, or you will die.”

* [Muslims believe] All governments – except Islam – should be overthrown.”

* “. . .everyone will be brought under the yoke of Islam, willingly or unwillingly.”

* “. . .even though generally Islamic followers will say that the ‘believe’ in Jesus and respect Him and the Bible, in fact, neither is really true.”

 
“We thank school officials for taking this issue seriously and await appropriate disciplinary action for the teacher,” said CAIR-Houston Executive Director Mustafaa Carroll. “Only a strong response to this attempt at student indoctrination will send a message that our schools must never be incubators of hate.”
 
He noted that CAIR-Houston last year welcomed the resignation of Angela Box, a third-grade teacher who made anti-Muslim remarks on a public access television show.
 
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to urge the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District board members to reinstate Dale Woolverton.

Blog Editor Introduction to Glick’s “Time for consequences”

Blog Editor: John R. Houk

4/28/14

(The intro is in no way associated with the Glick’s original essay.)

 

Hamas and Islamic Jihad (aka Palestine Islamic Jihad or PIJ) are both on the U.S. government terrorist list. Which translate to the fact their leadership then are war criminals. A couple of weeks ago Mahmoud Abbas signed a bunch of international protocols as if the Palestinian Authority (PA) was a sovereign nation. The PA is not a sovereign nation. The PA is an autonomous governing body legitimized by the Oslo Accords which was supposed to build a situation between the Jewish State of Israel and the PA of agreed upon building blocks that would lead to a sovereign Palestinian State. The problem has been Israel has given and given while the PA has refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish State, uses their Media and schools to inculcate Jew-hatred and demands that Jerusalem – Israel’s Capital City – should be split back to pre-1967 when the so-called West Bank was part of sovereign Jordan and that portion of the Jerusalem become a Palestinian State Capital City. Oh yes we can add to the PA demand of flooding descendants of refugees that were told to flee the new Jewish State while about 5 or 6 invading armies made an effort to drive Jews into the sea make the Jewish land all Muslim controlled. Of course all of the PA demands are unworkable for Israel to remain a secure nation. It would set up Israel for a combined Palestinian State invasion undoubted coupled with the military of other Jew-hating nations to again drive Jews into the sea and initiate yet another Holocaust. (By the way starting at sunset on 4/27/14 and lasting through sunset on 4/28/14 is Holocaust Memorial Day – aka Yom HaShoah)

 

Abbas’ signing of those international protocols was yet another breach of the Oslo Accords. Just to place the icing on the duplicitous PA intentions Mahmoud Abbas has signed a unity agreement with both the Islamic terrorist organizations Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Caroline Glick points that Abbas’s unity agreement and the signing of the international accords (like the Geneva Convention) immediately turns the PA and its new partners into war criminals. Do you think Obama will disdain the PA and Abbas in the Quartet-Israel-PA peace negotiations?

Time for consequences

 

By Caroline Glick

April 25th, 2014

CarolineGlick.com

 

It’s hard not to admire Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s brazenness.

 

Two weeks ago, Abbas signed on to 15 international agreements that among other things require the PA to respect human rights and punish war criminals.

 

And this week, he signed a unity deal with two genocidal terror groups all of whose leaders are war criminals. Every leader of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the two parties that signed the deal with the PLO, are war criminals. Under the Geneva Conventions, which Abbas signed onto just a couple of weeks ago, he is required to put them on trial, for their war crimes.

 

Here it is worth noting that under the Geneva Conventions, every single rocket launch from Gaza into Israeli territory is a separate war crime.

 

Abbas was only able to sign the Geneva Conventions on the one hand, and the unity deal with terrorist war criminals on the other, because he is utterly convinced that neither the US nor the European Union will hold him accountable for his actions. He is completely certain that neither the Americans nor the Europeans are serious about their professed commitments to upholding international law.

 

Abbas is sure that for both the Obama administration and the EU, maintaining support for the PLO far outweighs any concern they have for abiding by the law of nations. He believes this because he has watched them make excuses for the PLO and its leaders for the past two decades.

 

When it comes to the Palestinians, the Western powers are always perfectly willing to throw out their allegiance to law – international law and their domestic statutes – to continue supporting the PLO in the name of a peace process, which by now, everyone understands is entirely fictional.

 

Why do they do this?

 

They do it because the peace process gives them a way to ignore and wish away the pathologies of the Islamic and Arab world.

 

The peace process is predicated on the notion that all those pathologies are Israel’s fault. If Israel would just surrender Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians, then the Arabs writ large, and the Muslim world as a whole will cast aside their support for jihad and terrorism and everything will be fine.

 

 
At least that is how Abbas analyzes the situation.

 

And so far, the US has not disappointed him.

 

The Obama administration’s immediate response to Abbas’s unity with terrorist war criminals deal involved pretending it didn’t understand what had just happened.

 

In a press briefing on Wednesday, shortly after Hamas war criminal Ismail Haniyeh signed the deal with Fatah and Islamic Jihad, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged that the deal is bad for the peace process. But she wasn’t willing to reach the inevitable conclusion.

 

Rather, she averred, idiotically, “I think the ball, at this point, is in the Palestinians’ court to answer questions to whether this reconciliation meets the US’s long-standing principles.”

 

Two days before the unity deal, a reporter from Al-Monitor asked Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar if Hamas has given up terrorism.

 

Zahar responded, “Anyone who claims so must be drunk. How has Hamas abandoned the resistance [that is, terrorist] effort? What are the manifestations of it doing so? Where have we prevented the launching of rockets?” No ambiguity whatsoever there.

 

And Abbas just signed a deal Hamas, and with Islamic Jihad, the official representative of the Iranian mullahs in the Palestinian war criminal lineup.

 

No ambiguity there, either.

 

If the US is willfully blind to who the Palestinians are, what they are doing, and what they stand for, the Europeans are so committed to the Palestinians that they invented an imaginary world where international law protects war criminals and castigates their Jewish victims as international outlaws.

 

In the EU’s view, Hamas is an attractive organization.

 

During a meeting with Abbas last October, Catherine Ashton, the EU’s foreign policy chief, urged Abbas to sign a unity deal with Hamas. A statement from her office read that she views reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas “as an important element for the unity of a future Palestinian state and for reaching a twostate solution.”

 

And while unity between terrorist factions is something that Ashton considers conducive to peace, in her view, Jewish presence in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria is tantamount to a war crime.

 

In a statement released by her office last week, after Baruch Mizrahi was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while driving in his family car, with his wife and young children, to a Passover Seder, Ashton gave no more than a perfunctory condemnation of the war crime.

 

 
Four-fifths of her statement involved condemning Israel for respecting Jewish property rights and the rules of due process and international law in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

 

In the EU’s imaginary world, being in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem while Jewish is a war crime. Murdering Jews is merely impolite.

 

The deal signed on Wednesday is the fourth unity deal Fatah has signed with Hamas. After the first one was signed in 2007, the so-called Middle East Quartet, which includes the US, the EU, the UN and Russia, issued three conditions for accepting the unity government: Hamas has to recognize Israel’s right to exist, abjure terrorism and accept the legitimacy of the previous agreements signed by the PLO with Israel.

 

As Zahar and every other Hamas leader has made clear repeatedly, these conditions will never be met.

 

But regardless of how Hamas views them, in and of themselves the Quartet’s conditions are deeply problematic. They themselves constitute a breach of international law.

 

The Quartet’s conditions assert that if Hamas and Islamic Jihad agree to them, they will be accorded the same legitimacy as the PLO. In other words, the Quartet members have committed themselves to granting immunity from prosecution for war crimes to all Palestinian terrorists.

 

Providing such immunity is arguably a breach of international law. And it exposes a profound and irrational dependence on the mythical peace process on the part of Western policy-makers.

 

Reacting to this week’s unity deal, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said, “The agreement between Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad brings the Middle East to a new diplomatic era. The Palestinian Authority turned into the largest terrorist organization in the world, 20 minutes from Tel Aviv.”

 

And under international law, including the agreements that Abbas acceded to just two weeks ago, Bennett is absolutely right.

 

Apologists for Abbas note that this week’s deal is as unlikely as all its predecessors to be implemented.

 

But even if they are right this doesn’t mean that Abbas’s repeated practice of signing unity deals with war criminals should be cast aside as insignificant.

 

They expose the lie at the heart of the peace process. The time has come to call things by their names.

 

Abbas is a terrorist and the PA is a terrorist organization.

 

In light of this incontrovertible fact, the time has come to treat the PA in accordance with international law.

 

Perhaps shocked by Abbas’s behavior, perhaps overwhelmed by the serial failure of every one of its foreign policies, the administration acknowledged that Israel can’t be expected to negotiate with a government that doesn’t accept its right to exist.

 

Administration officials even said that the US would have to revisit its relationship with the PA in light of the agreement with Hamas.

 

No doubt, the administration is convinced that it can revert to form and ignore reality once again the moment the smoke as cleared. But whatever its intentions, the administration’s acknowledgment of Abbas’s bad faith opens the door to action by both Israel and the US Congress.

 

The Israeli government and the US Congress should take the steps necessary to bring their national policies toward the Palestinians into accordance with the law of nations.

 

On Thursday, the security cabinet rightly decided to end negotiations with the PA. But this cannot be the end of the line. Israel must also stop all financial transfers to the PA.

 

Just as critically, Israel must stop cooperating with PA security forces in Judea and Samaria.

 

It must end its support for US training of those forces and call for the US to end its mission to assist PA security forces.

 

 

Israel must begin arresting and prosecuting Palestinian officials who incite for the murder of Jews, and charge them with solicitation of murder.

 

The government should assist Israeli citizens in submitting war crimes complaints against Palestinian officials and the PA generally at international tribunals for their involvement in war crimes, including their incitement of genocide.

 

As for the US Congress, last week, with the passage into law of Sen. Ted Cruz’s bill banning terrorists from serving as UN ambassadors, the Congress showed that it is capable of acting to force the administration to uphold US anti-terror laws.

 

To this end, in accordance with those laws, Congress must act to immediately end US military support for Palestinian security services.

 

The Office of the US Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian territories that trains Palestinian military forces should be closed straightaway. Its personnel should be redeployed out of the area forthwith.

 

So, too, given that the Palestinian Authority now inarguably meets the US definition of a foreign terrorist organization, the US must end all financial assistance to its operating budget. Also, in accordance with US law, the US banking system must be closed to PA entities. Foreign banks that do business with these entities should be barred from doing business with US banks.

 

Abbas is not interested in peace. The two-state model isn’t about achieving peace. It is about blaming the victim of the absence of peace for the absence of peace.

 

Abbas knows his apologists, both in Israel, and most important in the US and Europe. He knows they will go to any length to defend him.

 

The Israeli Left does so because without the phony peace process, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, the Labor Party and Meretz become political irrelevancies.

 

The administration and the EU defend Abbas and the phony peace process because they don’t want to acknowledge the plain fact that Israel is the only stable ally they have in the Middle East and the stronger Israel is the more protected they are. Doing so contradicts their ideology.

 

So now Abbas is telling them that the deal is good for peace since it brings Hamas-controlled Gaza into the PLO and so reunifies the PA, which has been operating as two separate entities for seven years. And they may go along with it.

 

They’ve been perfectly willing to embrace utter nonsense countless times over the years.

 

Only the Israeli government and Congress can stop them. And they must stop them.

 

These phony peaceniks’ preference for Jew-killers over international law comes with a prohibitive price tag. Jews are murdered, war criminals are embraced, and the rule of law is rent asunder.
