“Ichrab beytek!” These two Arabic words mean, "may your house be destroyed." This is what Dr. Mahmoud Abbas (Ph.D. thesis: “The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism” i.e., "there was no real Holocaust,"1962, Lumumba University, Moscow), head of the Israeli created "Palestinian Authority" (PA, 1993 Oslo Accords), had to say on January 14th to the president of the United States speaking before a major gathering of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Ramallah (a portion of the Jewish people’s historic land that Israel gifted to the PLO in the 1993 Oslo Accords). Dr. Abbas gave a two-hour speech in which he had very blunt words for a number of people. Apparently US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is not one of his favorites. He was also not happy with the British for the issuing of the Balfour Declaration in 1917, in which Britain recognized the Jewish right to return to their homeland in the land of Israel.
He complained that Israel was nothing more than an evil European colonial scheme to create an imperialist outpost in the Middle East at the expense of the ancient Palestinian natives. He repeated once again that there is absolutely no Jewish connection to this land: it is a Zionist-imperialist scheme. A fraud foisted on the Palestinian people and the world.
This is what the children in the PA learn from their very respected teachers and in the UNRWA (the UN agency that perpetuates the hate dreams of the "Palestinians") school system, funded by the USA. Dr. Abbas is still hopping mad at US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem - a city with "absolutely no Jewish history" according to the mild mannered doctor - as the capital of Israel. Imagine the absurdity of it all! Jews? Jerusalem? This is the biggest hoax ever!
Trump's decision to reduce some of the billions in US support for the PA and for UNRWA has Abbas and friends in an absolute frenzy. It is really uncanny that the world, including and foremost the USA, has actually been feeding this monster "Palestinian Authority" and engine of hate and illusion for so long. It is one of the mysteries of modern times that a non-people can receive unprecedented support from the entire world to create a country out of an absolute historic vacuum.
This mystery is perhaps one of the most interesting questions of our time, but we will leave that for a later discussion. It is clearly beyond just politics. Perhaps even a greater mystery is why Israel initiated and created the monster in the first place. For that study, we would need a huge psychologist's couch. When one finally has pointed to the naked emperor and dared to declare that he has no clothes, watch what happens: “Ichrab beytek!” Ever since Israel, through Shimon Peres of the Oslo Accords, cleared the way for the grand entrance into the heart of our Land for the PLO, Yasser Arafat, and Abbas, at the head of 70,000 other terrorist Jew haters, Israel has tried everything to improve their lives and appease them.
This was the strategy of Oslo. This would be the sophisticated moderate answer to the "conflict" that would surely reverse their hatred and dreams of destruction. Decades and thousands of dead Jews later, some of our enlightened leaders still promise positive results if only we persevere in paying the "price for peace." The fruits will yet come.
Meanwhile in his January speech, the good doctor swore that despite all pressure, he will never, ever, ever stop paying billions of dollars to the heroes of his people - those who murder Jews. The more Jews one murders, the more money one receives. This is PA law.
As far as his constituency is concerned, apparently this money is better used rewarding killers of Jews than in providing electricity, water, and jobs. This part of the budget will never be touched. Isn't it then clear how essential international aid is? How dare Trump even consider reducing it!
Israel allows hundreds of trucks of supplies into Gaza (Hamastan) daily - even as Gazans rained thousands of missiles down on Israeli civilians during the last "round.” Hamas uses whatever they deem necessary from the humanitarian aid it receives to stock up on and improve their missile supply and especially to dig huge sophisticated attack/abduction tunnels into Israel. Israel just uncovered and destroyed one of these death tunnels - just in time - as it extended way into Israel and right next to a kibbutz.
Because our "peace partners" use their resources to kill Jews, we have been forced to funnel some of ours to defending against the barbarians that we brought to our gates in 1993.
Israel's "Iron Dome" has done a great job in protecting her civilians from Arab missiles. Now Israel has been forced once again to lead the world in yet another technological breakthrough that protects against the under ground threats - apparently quite successfully, as seen this week.
Now understandably, our neighbors are increasingly frustrated. What can we do for them? How can we make them love us again?
What words shall we choose? “Ichrab beytkum!” Thank you, Dr. Abbas.
