Facts vs. Abbas' NYTimes Op-EdAbbas rewrote Middle East History and this is a historian's factual response to the PA head's op-ed in the NYTimes on May 17, 2111. For a devastating critique, go to Jack Engelhard's op-ed below.
Had There Been No War, ...Had the Arabs not declared war, there would be no Nakba. And although most Arabs left at their leaders urging to wait for Israel's destruction, it was also imperative to eliminate pockets of resistance near Jewish communities.
UN Res. 377 -- A Clear DangerThe significance of the ruling cannot be overstated: It challenges the power of the veto. The UN Charter Does Not Support GA Resolution 377 .
Beware A Palestinian StateThe European Union's Foreign Affairs Council stated that it would recognize a Palestinian Arab state "when appropriate". That is far from the case, this article proves.
PA Drafts UN Resolution Calls for a freeze on Jewish construction in disputed Territories abound- while Arab construction, which far exceeds Jewish development, continues unfettered.
Europe: No Honest BrokerEurope is not an innocent bystander in what goes on in the Middle East, nor is it an honest broker.
No Occupied TerrirtoriesA UN coalition sought to rewrite history by labeling the Territories 'Occupied Territories,' thus endowing them with an aura of bogus statehood and a false history. See the rest of the story below.

Obama Goes Against PredecessorsObama is going against the will of his predecessors who approved of a national home for the Jewish Peole in all of Palestine. Congress did as well, as far back as 1922.
Misuse of 4th Geneva Convention The International Court of Justice claimed Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are illegal, based on misinterpretation of the Fourth Geneva Convention. "Occupied"? "deportation?" "forced transfer?" See Article 80 of the UN Charter.
Goldstone-Terms that DeceiveOne way of rewriting history is the shameless use of deceptive, bogus terms as if they are backed by facts. Their repetition creates a narrative in which falsehood eventually can become accepted as truth.
A Letter to President BushIt is most troublesome that your administration sees nothing wrong in considering a plan to declare an independent Palestinian state with provisional borders within the next two years.
Priorities of a Jewish EducatorWhat the Israeli education minister seems to miss - or avoid - is a far more important "map." It is the map of the legally binding Mandate for Palestine document of July 24 1922.
European Union HypocrisyEU hypocrisy is clear when one examines and compares the EU's own benchmarks as applied to a country-candidate (for example, Turkey) waiting to join the European Union on the one hand, and the benchmarks the EU is applying toward the Palestinians, who seek to have a state, on the other hand.
