#Palestine #Israel: new Rule of Engagement
Palestinian attack with a Kornet anti-tank guided missile will be shown shortly.
"Joint Ops Room: Mujahideen targetted an Israeli bus carrying soldiers in Arash Mughlasim, east of #Jabalia, that killed/ wounded those inside".
#Israel Jets are attacking #Gaza now and #palestinian groups are expected to respond.

#Qassam #Hamas waited for 30 soldiers to leave the Israeli bus, fired its Kornet when only 1 soldier was in. The Message is clear. Palestinians (& Hezbollah) have learned to hit #Israel without driving it out of control, limiting the hit at the beginning

#Netanyahu says #EU has agreed to stop funding an association of left-wing NGOs - Aug 7,2018

#BTselem is a “disgrace,” PM #Netanyahu said on October 14, 2018 as he lashed out at the left-wing #Israeli NGO over its plans to speak out against #Israel at the #UnitedNations Security Council later that week.

The invented #Palestinian nation and their inflated refugee numbers. A short thread. 1) In 1882, official Ottoman Turk census figures showed that, in the entire Land of what is now #Israel, there were only 141 000 Muslims, both Arab and non-Arab.
2) A well regarded travel guide to #Palestine and Syria was published in 1906 by Karl Baedeker; The book estimated the total population of Jerusalem at 60,000, of whom 7,000 were Muslims, 13,000 were Christians and 40,000 were Jews.
3) from around 1881 Jews came home to Israel renamed Palestine to reclaim their historical homeland. As the Jews came and drained the swamps and made the deserts bloom, Arabs followed. They came for jobs, for prosperity, for freedom. And, they came in large numbers.

<Thread👇> How does the @INSSIsrael Plan propose to redraw the #Israeli🇮🇱-#Palestinian🇵🇸 map? (N.B.: This is NOT a proposal for a peace treaty, but a back-up action plan for Israel to start separating from the Palestinians if final-status negotiations prove impossible.)
1/ The basis is Areas A + B from Oslo (40% of the West Bank). B might be expanded to include Palestinian "spillover" into C. PA security control over Area B, as in A. This is basis for a future Palestinian state, and possibly a Palestinian state in temporary borders.
2/ 25% of West Bank from Area C allocated for Palestinian economic development & int'l effort for industrialisation and building. Security and planning responsibility in Israel's hands, to be transferred incrementally to PA. Territorial contiguity, new transportational network.

I was present & was the 1st journalist who entered the camp. I saw the massacre of Palestinians & Lebanese. Will be in my book in details.

36 years ago, #Israel protected its proxy, Falangists "Lebanese Forces", to commit the massacre of Sabra and Chatila.

Goodnight world...
In the memory of the 16th of September 1982, I share with you a small part of my forthcoming book about #Palestinian camps #SabraAndShatila and the massacre #Beirut #Lebanon.

Many descriptive parts are missing. It was a sad and shocking day that details never left my menory.

If "Palestinians" allegedly r the historic inhabitants of the Holy Land then...
Why is it that all historic documents mention Jews as the native inhabitants & Greeks, Romans & others as foreigners dwelling in Judea
*BUT
not of a Palestinian people either as native or foreign?
Why is there is no reference to any #Palestinian people in the Qur'an, although it is tradition that Mohammed was once in #Jerusalem.

It appears evident that even he did not meet any Palestinian in Jerusalem or in his whole life, neither did his successors.
Caliph Salahuddin al-Ayyub (Saladin), knew the Jews & kindly invited them to resettle in Jerusalem(which he recognized as their Homeland)
To claim that Palestinians r the original people of Israel is not only against secular history BUT also against Islamic history!

Currency: Today there is no #Palestinian currency; everybody uses the #Israeli shekel. Israel is capable of blocking any future attempts to create a Palestinian currency. #Apartheid @visualizingpal

How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

First the timing.
"Trump administration has launched an all-out sadistic assault on the UN Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, that cares for the survival and education of 4-5 million refugees and their descendants."
2nd the deal with Hamas. Read the Al Arabiya article & compare tone to."mediation for a separate deal between Hamas and Israel... just when the latter blockades, starves and cuts fuel to the Gaza Strip" to quote @marwanbishara

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
