Gallup has published a poll that clearly shows that a large majority of the American people supports Israel in their war against Palestinian Islamic terrorists:
Following the election of Hamas as the Palestinian Authority's ruling party, Americans have grown more pessimistic that peace will ever be achieved in the Middle East, and increasingly sympathetic toward the Israelis. American opinions of the Palestinians had been improving in recent years, but now are among the worst Gallup has ever measured. Most Americans do not believe the United States should give any financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority -- regardless of its stance toward Israel -- and most say the United States should conduct diplomatic relations with the Palestinians if they recognize Israel as a nation.
Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian terrorists have one goal: to destroy the State of Israel and murder all of her citizens. Click here for more information on these murderous bastards.
I copy the full poll below. Congratulations to the people of the United States of America who once again stands in a clear way with Israel and not with the mass murdering Islamic fanatics from the Palestinian Hamas.
The New York Times (www.nytimes.com) reports that a defector from Iran says that Iran was responsible for the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center that killed 85 and injured hundreds.
The Iranian government organized and carried out the bombing of a Jewish community center here eight years ago that killed 85 people and then paid Argentina's president at the time, Carlos Saúl Menem, $10 million to cover it up, a witness in the case has said in sealed testimony. [...]
I copy the article below - I also include the names of the victims killed in the terrorist attack.
I just heard on Israeli radio (http://bet.iba.org.il) that an Israeli citizen helped a Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber in last week's terrorist attack on Rishon Le-Zion.
"The gag order over the arrest of Ibrahim Sarhana, a resident of the Dehaishe refugee camp and his wife Marina Pinsky, an Israeli citizen, on suspicion that they aided a suicide bomber to arrive in Rishon Letzion last week, has been lifted Thursday.
Correction: Ha'aretz reports that contradictory to previous reports, the woman who aided the suicide bomber who carried out the suicide bombing in Rishon Letzion on May 22 is not Marina Pinsky - a Jewish Israeli - but rather Irena Polichuk, a non-Jew who arrived in Israel several years ago and worked as a prostitute.
Click here to see the report on the original homicide/suicide bombing, where two unarmed civilians were killed and over 50 wounded.

Once again, a monument to Nazi victims, has been vandalized in Germany:
A German official on Thursday decried a string of right-wing attacks on memorials to the victims of Nazi-era crimes in the east of the country as the worst in years, after vandals destroyed a brick monument in the town of Leegebruch earlier this week.
A couple of months ago, in September 2002, German Nazis firebombed a Jewish Museum - click here for more details. I copy the full article below.
The Washington Jewish Week Online (www.washingtonjewishweek.com) has an article by 21-year-old Sarah Kopelovich who describes how she was attacked at a counter rally against neo-Nazis in Washington, DC. Sarah was harassed by people that hated her for being Jewish and a supporter of Israel.
The sad part of the story is that it's not the neo-Nazis that attacked her, but some leftist liberals, who seem to have as much hate and contempt for Jews and Israel as their extreme right counterparts.
Truth: In 2002, 60 years after the Holocaust, a Jewish girl cannot go out to an anti-neo-Nazi rally and hold up the Israeli flag. [...]
Sarah, I know how you feel. I too feel betrayed by many from the left who I once thought were my friends. The only ones helping the Jewish community and Israel today are moderate Republicans, and they will get my vote in the next elections.
Congratulations for standing up to these so called "humanitarians" - with their hate and one-sideness, they are not better than the neo-Nazis from across the street.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Tom Lantos, a congressman from California, has correctly described Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian "leader", as "a poison, a plague and a pest":
During his press conference, the Hungarian-born congressman, who is the only Holocaust survivor ever to serve in the US Congress, reserved his harshest criticism for Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.
For more information on how Arafat the pest has refused peace and decided to murder women and children, click here.
Tom Lantos recently has defeated a Palestinian Candidate, Maad Abu-Ghazalah, in the primaries for the Democratic party in the 12th district of California. For more details, click here.
I copy the full article below, where Mr. Lantos also tells the truth about Egypt's refusal to stop the mass murdering Palestinian terrorists from bringing bombs and guns into Gaza. Found this on the excellent IsraellyCool.
After last night's attack by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (Holy war) on Jewish worshipers in Hebron that left 12 Israelis dead and another 15 wounded, I was pretty angry and sad.
I listened to Israeli radio the whole night, and heard the friends of the soldiers that were murdered while trying to evacuate the wounded. I heard them cry and I have to admit that I also cried.
This sadness and anger has led me to think of a new solution to stop the Palestinian war to anihilate Israel and her citizens.
If before we had "Land for Peace", where Israel would give back disputed territories to Palestinians that accepted peace, let's now talk about "Land for War" where Israel should annex parts of the West Bank and Gaza every time there's a terrorist attack.
I wrote a long article on "Land for War" - for more details see below.
Honest Report (www.honestreporting.com) has published information on how Palestinians from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas are firing hundreds of rockets at Israel:
I copy the full article below.
The Atlantic (www.theatlantic.com) has released a brief history of Yasser Arafat, the current chairman of the Palestinian Authority.
He [Arafat] and his army have brought disorder wherever they have settled. In 1969 they based themselves in Jordan, where they soon began terrorizing the local people, running extortion rackets against businesses, and undermining the Jordanian regime. Black September followed in 1970: Jordan's King Hussein launched a huge and bloody war against the Palestinians, killing thousands and leading to the expulsion of Arafat and his army. The same sort of thing happened in Lebanon a decade later, with Palestinian thugs looting banks and destroying the local government. The Syrians finally came in to restore order, in what became known as Black June. Arafat has somehow survived his many crises—battles with the Jordanians, the Syrians, the Egyptians, the Lebanese Christians, and, of course, the Israelis. And each time, instead of being held even partly responsible for the widespread suffering his actions have caused his people, he has been lionized as the figure who will someday bring deliverance from that suffering. This is a monumental political achievement.

Since I created FactsOfIsrael.com 6 months ago, I have received my fair share of hate mail. Many of these messages come from the Islamic fascists who call me an "infidel" and send me death threats (just look in the Hate Mail section for more examples).
After a while, it gets pretty boring: it's the same brainwashed-neo-Nazi "kill the Jews" bile that the Imams from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Gaza spit every week.
Sometimes though, the leftist fascists from Europe will also suprise me. Today I received an email from a German who goes by the name of Kiewitz (firstname.lastname@example.org). This guy managed to squeeze all anti-American and anti-Israeli cliches in one message. Here's an example:
I'm German and I'm not proud of our history. I'm sick of it. But I'm even more sick by people that talk like racists and enjoy other people to die.
Kiewitz, whom I'll refer to from now on as the "leftist fascist", was not happy about a video I published that shows how American forces attacked an Islamic terrorist camp in Afghanistan - click here for that story.
Read this my little leftist fascist: the German Nazis, your people, managed to murder 6 million Jews during World War II and the Holocaust. If you do the math, that's 30,000 Jewish men, women and children PER DAY! On bad days, it would go as high as 50,000-60,000 human beings deliberately killed PER DAY.
The next time you're watching B. München, Bayer Leverkusen, or any other German soccer team, look closely at the people in the stadium. Then, imagine the German Nazis going around the stands shooting at every one of them - all 30,000 in one day, all men, all women, all chidlren.
And you have the audacity to attack me because I support America's war on Islamic terrorism? Let me tell you what I think of your friends from Al-Qaeda, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and any other Islamic terrorists that, similarly to your Nazi ancestors, deliberately murder women and children.
The only value they'll have is when they become fertilizer and are buried underground.
If you'd like to send a message to the German leftist fascist to let him know what you think, his email address is email@example.com.
I'm not finished, see below for the fascist's full message and the rest of my rant.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has published an article with many examples on how the British magazine 'The Economist' is biased against Israel
The Economist has also shown remarkably little interest in the humanitarian tragedies endured by Israelis. Having reviewed dozens of stories, I have yet to see one that names a single victim of terror, or dwells on the consequences for the victim's family, or allows an Israeli voice to have the last word in the story. [...]
I know three people that read 'The Economist" regularly. They are all extremely anti-Israel, support the Palestinian right of return, and couldn't give a damn about Israeli victims of Palestinian terrorism.
I copy the full article below.
The National Post (www.nationalpost.com) has a good article that explains why Israel should continue its fight against Palestinian terrorism, including the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, and Arafat's terror groups such as the "Al Aksa's Martyr's Brigade".
The main idea is that a unilateral retreat from the Israeli army would be simply interpreted as weakness by Arafat and other Palestinian terrorists.
To prove this point, the writer, Daniel Pipes, shows how the Hezbollah (a terrorist group based in Lebanon, backed by Iran) has increased its attacks against Israel after she retreated from Lebanon in 2000.
"And fight it did. In the two years since Israel's retreat, Hezbollah has initiated more than 40 unprovoked strikes against Israeli targets, including army outposts in an area known as the Shebaa Farms and civilian villages along Israel's northern border. It also kidnapped (and presumably murdered) three soldiers and a reserve officer, the former abducted from Israeli territory, the latter from Switzerland.
I copy the full article below.
The Simon Wisenthal Center (www.wiesenthal.com) reports that Hizbullah's television station is now openly racist:
The Hizbullah is an Arab Muslim terrorist organization based in Lebanon and financed by Iran. It has proudly taken responsibility for the deliberate murder of dozens of women and children.
France refuses to define Hizbullah as a terrorist organization (click here for more details).
Hizbullah follows in the racist ways of Egyptian television which, a few months ago, decided to broadcast a series based on the "Protocols of Zion". For more information on this Egyptian racist show, click here. For more information on the racist document "The Protocols of Zion", click here.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that another Palestinian genocide bomber has blown himself up in a crowded bus in Tel-Aviv, deliberately murdering 5 and wounding over 60 Israeli men, women and children:
The blast occurred at about 1 p.m. local time on bus No. 4 at the corner of Allenby and Montefiore Streets, near The Great Synagogue of Tel Aviv. The force of the blast blew the roof off the bus, blew out most of its windows and blackened the interior.
Most of the terrorists from the Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades have left the Palestinian towns and moved into the country side. Their deadly weapons, including bombs and explosives were left behind in the cities.
A couple of days ago, the IDF (Israel's army) lifted the curfew on Jenin, allowing the Palestinian murderers to retrieve their suicide bomb belts: the results are the latest killings of Israeli unarmed women and children (I got this analysis from Israeli TV Channel 1).

O site Brasileiro Pletz.com (www.pletz.com) tem um bom artigo que pergunta porque a esquerda apoia incondicionalmente os árabes-palestinos em sua guerra contra Israel?
A esquerda fala de sua paixão pela democracia (“a voz do povo…”). Mas é exatamente em Israel que a democracia funciona plenamente, em contraposição ao que ocorre com todos os que o consideram como inimigo: países árabes e islâmicos. Arafat é um líder autoritário, ditador corrupto, mas a esquerda o adula, protege e defende.
