Israel In The News – Brotherhood: ‘Kill the Jews’, Bribery at UN, and Congressmen Want Probe – Israel My Glory (Jan./Feb. 2012)

Brotherhood: ‘Kill the Jews’  
            Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood held a “kill the Jews” rally in Cairo in November.  Thousands attended, promising to “one day kill all the Jews” and wage war against Jerusalem’s “Judaization.”
            The rally was held on the anniversary of the 1947 UN partition plan that established the State of Israel and that was immediately followed by a pan-Arab war aimed at annihilating the newborn state.
            The Brotherhood is suddenly promoting itself as a party that favors nonviolent rights for women, but it boasts its hatred of Jewish people and Israel.  “The Muslim Brotherhood (is) very opportunistic.  They don’t care about the Egyptian blood. . . . They only care about taking power,” said Azza Kamal, a political activist.  (IsraelNationalNews.com)
Bribery at UN
          Though there is little need to provide incentives for most nations to vote against Israel at the UN, some Arab states are nevertheless bribing countries that traditionally side with the Jewish state in order to make passage of anti-Israel resolutions more one-sided.
            Johnson Toribiong, president of the Pacific island nation of Palau, told Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper the United Arab Emirates (UAE) recently offered him $50 million to start voting against Israel.
            “We told them ‘Forget it. We will not vote against Israel for anything in the world,’” Toribiong said.  Palau, Vanuatu, Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, and a number of other Pacific micro nations are firm supporters of Israel due to their strong Christian faith.
            When the Solomon Islands, another Pacific island nation, suddenly began voting against Israel in 2009, many wondered why.  Like other Christian island nations, they had always backed the Jewish state.  Later it was discovered that Iran’s foreign ministry had bribed the impoverished Solomon Islands with a $200,000 check and technological aid.  (www.israeltoday.co.il)
Congressmen Want Probe
            Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Steve Israel (D-NY) have asked for an investigation to determine if the Palestinian Authority (PA) is using U.S. aid for terrorists.  They wrote to the Government Accountability Office following news reports that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has ordered homes be built for terrorists whom Israel freed in return for the release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.
            They also want to investigate whether Abbas is using U.S. Economic Support Funds for his unilateral move to win UN recognition for the PA, a violation of the Oslo Accords and the death knell of the U.S.-sponsored “peace process.”
            Steve Israel said “We have a foreclosure crisis in the United States, and we’re struggling to keep American families in their homes.  Now we learn that U.S. taxpayer dollars could be going to build homes for terrorists?  This is outrageous.  I’m asking for a full accounting of how U.S. funds are being used by the Palestinian Authority.” (IsraelNationalNews.com)

Jordan In Trouble
            Refugees from Iraq, the Palestinian Authority (PA), and Syria swarming across the borders to Jordan, along with the growing influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, threaten Jordan’s stability, researchers report.  Also, America’s withdrawal from Iraq may cause anarchy there and increase the flow of Iraqi refugees to Jordan, a report said.
            The violence in Syria already has spread across the Jordanian border.  Syrian soldiers shot at a girl fleeing to Jordan in November 2011, and Jordanian forces rescued her.  Jordanian soldiers also arrested a youth for allegedly helping Syrians but arms; he died in jail, prompting street protests.
            Another huge threat to King Abdullah is the prospect of a PA unity government that would restore Hamas’s status in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley.  Jordan has a peace treaty with Israel.  (IsraelNationalNews.com)
