The Disturbing Hate Trend
In much the same way that President Clinton taught the youth of America that oral sex was not sex at all, America is being taught a new lesson from liberals. In a disturbing new trend favoring Palestinians, liberals are sending a message to our youth that it is ok to hate Israelis. Guilt by association then bleeds over to Jews worldwide and the new trend of anti-Semitism has taken hold.
The Nazi like tactics of the old world Muslim religion is gaining traction in progressive countries of Europe as well as America. It now seems somehow “hip” to hate a particular group of people. Hate groups are nothing new or different; the neo-Nazis have been in existence in America since the early fifties, but in the 90’s and into the millennium their numbers had dwindled. Now there seems to be a resurgence in the popularity of these hate groups.
As a result of Barack Obama’s sharp criticism of Israel the liberal public is quick to jump on that bandwagon once again as they did in 1938 starting another dangerous downward spiral of hatred that almost killed a nation for 5 decades. The word Nazi is so polarizing in Germany it is against the law to even use the word. The shame their citizens feel for the actions of one mad man is etched in their memory forever.
With many countries now feeling the expansion of the Muslim religion and the subsequent creep of Sharia law the push is on once again to somehow extinguish the rich tradition of the Jewish people. Why do they see this as necessary? Why is hatred being tolerated and even expanded by our President? How can the world be so intolerant of one religion of people? How can another religion preach hate in their “holy book?”
I fear that the world is once again going down that ugly road once travelled by an insecure ego maniac from Austria.
Delta Airlines Become First Sharia Compliant American Carrier
Ex-congressman Fred Grandy (Gopher from the Love Boat TV Show) and his wife have stumbled onto a business deal between the American carrier Delta Airlines and Saudi Arabian Airlines. That in itself is fine, but what followed is the enforcement of a concerted effort of bigotry by Saudi Arabian Airlines and the country of Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia Airlines has told Delta that a direct flight to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia would of course require either a travel visa or work visa, neither of which would be given to declared passengers of Jewish ancestry. Delta then deferred the bigoted policy back to Saudi Arabia, saying that those were the policies of the host country and they weren’t responsible for the requirements.
The very fact that Delta entered into an agreement with full knowledge of the policies beforehand is proof that they are complicit in the discrimination of Jews. This business agreement should never have been made, regardless of who is responsible for the bigotry. Once the policy is known the agreement should have been cancelled.
I know for one, I will never fly Delta Airlines after this declaration of the creeping Sharia in our United States by a backward uneducated “religion of hate.”
Listen to the radio show that brought this to the news:
Purposely Testing the Waters
To set the stage for you, I live in Maryland, one of the so called sanctuary states for illegal aliens. My state has been controlled by Democratic legislature since 1959, and shows NO inclination to chance in the near future. I grew up here, but due to the downturn in the economy and housing market, I will stay until that reverses.
I have been writing about the political climate for over 3 years now, and have amassed an archive of over 1600 articles to say I study and research each and every subject would be an understatement to say the least. To meet me in a social setting, you would never know that I do such work. I rarely talk about politics outside my blog or social networks.
A friend who has a few inklings about my background tested the waters last night, while we were in a social setting. His questioned me as to the state of political affairs in Maryland. I basically told him that the RNC had signed off Maryland as a total loss many years ago and in fact some representatives of the Maryland Republican Party where Democrats themselves, not three voting cycles ago.
I told him that Maryland will not be a two party state for many years into the future, because “as the country goes, Maryland never follows.” Anyone who lives in Maryland sees the truth in my statement whether they be a democrat or a republican. His reply was very similar to person testing the temperature of the water before going in for a dip. He said, “Is it necessary to have two parties in Maryland, or wouldn’t it just be better to have two opinions?” I chuckled to myself at his question, but I answered it in a way that surprised him I believe.
His question assumed that one party could run the state as it does now, but that more moderate voices within the Democratic Party would be heard. That hasn’t happened in Maryland, in fact Maryland has moved farther left in the last 3 voting cycles, so his inference is a moot point.
My answer to him was this….. “A two party system is necessary everywhere in the United States and especially in Maryland. Because each party has it’s extremes it takes at least two parties to even out those extremes. Each party should be heard and eventual compromises should be made. Partisanship has replace bipartisanship, because of one rule party states, and that is no formula to move forward in our country.”
I think he was shocked by my answer because it didn’t indicate to him that I wanted total control for the Republican Party, but rather a shared experience……….so very UNLIKE the leaders in Maryland.
Human Sacrifice is Still Being Used Today!
Human sacrifice is still alive and well in Washington as Eric Holder and Barack Obama prepare Kenneth Melson, acting head of the ATF for the ceremony. Obama will insulate himself as far away from the action as possible by using Eric Holder as the hatchet man to force Melson to resign the office he was never confirmed to head, the ATF. No person has been formally confirmed by the Senate to head the ATF since 2006. So contentious is that seat that proponents of both sides of gun bans have tried to be named, but nobody ever confirmed.
Melson himself is an enigma of the Chicago political machine who hates guns. Sort ironic, isn’t it that someone who hates guns of all types is in charge of the very department that oversees guns. Melson will be the first casualty of Operation “fast and furious” the illegal transportation of weapons into Mexico to be put in the hands of the drug cartel.
Two leading Republican Congressmen have been leading the investigation of operation and have been continually stonewalled by Eric Holder over subpoenaed documents about the operation that ended in the death of one of our own Border Patrol Agents. Rep. Issa publicly lambasted Eric Holder over the redacted documents that he finally submitted. When finally submitted upon threat of the DOJ being held in contempt, each subpoenaed document was conveniently blacked out over 90%. Rep. Issa told Holder that he should be ashamed of himself over the blatant disregard for subpoena. The hearings have so far produced nobody who has claimed responsibility for the approval of the operation. Someone is going to have to answer for this illegal operation that ended in the death of a federal agent.
This is just one more classic example of the contempt the Obama Administration has for the Constitution, specifically the Second Amendment. This was an action from the very start to paint guns as a bad thing to make it easier to ban ALL guns from the American people the same way they are banned in Mexico. The most ironic part of this whole situation is that since Obama’s inauguration gun sales have skyrocketed and violent crime has actually declined! It just goes to prove that gun ownership is a deterrent to crime not the other way around.
Obama will once again slither his way from touchy situation of governmental abuse, but you can bet on one thing, Eric Holder has got to know that HE is next in line for sacrifice after Melson!
Father’s Day, Different Things to Different People
In the most elemental form Father’s day celebrates the role of the paternal parent. Whether or not that role is celebrated by the child is entirely up to the past history. We can have lots of role models in our lives, but generally the role of the parents is the closest to the heart of the children.
There can be many people referred to as “Father” and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a father by birth right it can be an adopted father, but generally the title is held by the male figure that raises the child, offers the love and support that nurtures that child. Of course on the other hand it can merely mean a sperm donor who never really gave much of a hand in raising the child, but the child holds a false celebration as to that father’s role even if they only share a skin color.
The term father can also be used in lots of ways to describe a term of endearment……. “father in heaven” to describe god…….. “Father O’Malley” to describe your priest……… “forefather” to describe the founding fathers of our country………. “step father” to describe that special man that raised you……. “father-in-law” to describe your wife’s father (ok maybe not all are terms of endearment…lol), but you get the idea!
I was never very close to my Father, but that doesn’t mean I can’t respect him for the sacrifices he made for me, or the respect I had for his success in business. Dad had a work ethic that was overly enthusiastic to say the least, and that is where our contention laid. I still miss him, not much on a daily basis now but I still miss him on father’s day and around the holidays. So this weekend, dad, even though you have been gone for 12 years I’ll be thinking about you.
I hope my son thinks about me a few times this weekend, and I hope his son is thinking about him too! Happy Father’s day to ever guy out there who has made a difference to a child that means the world to him!
Immigration Problems Supported by Facts not Emotion
I received this email from a friend today, and although I had never read this particular article I was curious as to its validity so I did some investigative work and found that #1 There is a Tina Greigo, and she does write for the Denver Rocky Mountain News, and yes she did pen this article. From her other articles I found her to be compassionate about the plight of the illegal immigrant issue, and as you will read, this article is based solely on facts not a subjective empathy or social injustice……..JUST facts. I have found this article has circulated well in its past 4 years, and although some of the links are dead, collaborating evidence can be found on those dead links. The number of illegals in this country has grown substantially since 2007 and accordingly the cost per year has gone up too. In short I have found this article to be real and accurate for its original date but needs readjusting for an accurate portrayal of today’s situation.
This clearly shows the need for “immigration reform,” and not just an open door policy encouraged by the Obama Administration. Clearly an amnesty policy will not fix the wrongs already in our country, and a concise plan needs to be drafted.
With that being said, here is Tina’s article in it’s entirety.
Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, 'Mexican Visitor's Lament' -- 10/25/07.
She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, 'They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes...What Happens to your country's economy if 20
million people go away?' That's a good question - it deserves an answer. Over 80 percent of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America?
The answers may surprise you!
In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico,
it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner,
safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.
In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids - would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico. That would save
Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver
Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered
death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from
our gridlocked cities in Colorado
Denver 's four percent unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.
In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return
the Sunshine State
back to America, the rule of law, and English.
In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.
If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home' --
If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home', the U.S. Economy would
return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they
wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.
No more push '1' for Spanish or '2'
for English. No more confusion
in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in
ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.
We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.
In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!
Losing more than 20 million people would clear up
highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get
rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home
countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy - which currently suffers an
$8.7 trillion debt.
At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country,
costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being
bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.
Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis
cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.
Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and
grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families’ cause 11 percent of our
Over one million of Mexico 's poorest citizens now live inside and
along our border from Brownsville , Texas to San Diego , California in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, electricity, roads or any kind of sanitation.
The New York
Times reported them to be America's new ' Third World ' inside
our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas
and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing
our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico
We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own
countries and/or make a better life in Mexico . We already invite a million
people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy
within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.
Interesting Statistics. Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should
vacate America , and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they
are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1. $11 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare
to illegal aliens. http://tinyurl.com/zob77
2.. $2.2 billion dollars are spent each year on food assistance
programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal
3. $2.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal
4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary
school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of
5. $17 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the
American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars PER DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal
7. 30% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $90 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for
welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are
caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in
the United States have a crime rate that's
two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html
11. During the year 2005, there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens
that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from terrorist countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine,
and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
12.. The National Policy Institute estimates that the total cost of
mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost
of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances
back to their countries of origin. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm
14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex
crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!'
The total cost is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!
24,000 Emails and what was found?
The left and the lame stream media tried to enlist all rabid Palin haters to pour over recently released emails from the time Sarah Palin was governor of Alaska. It seems that even a pile weighing in at 275lb was not too daunting a task for the group that claims her as “too stupid to be president.” Bent at proving the past governor is somehow corrupt, the left was willing to any length to expose her, forget the fact that Palin hasn’t declared she is running for anything.
A week later and what have they found?.....not one single incriminating document has been found. The funniest thing about this quest for the left’s “holy grail” is that no such hunt has ever been allowed on Barack Obama, not when he was in the Illinois State Legislature, not as a US Senator, not as a candidate for president. In fact when can you remember a time when ANY democrat has had 24,000 emails reveled from a time they were in public office?
It seems funny to me the hypocrisy that the left uses for stunts like this to expose what they think to be corruption, but when none is found they never apologize for the imposition they have put the person through, but then when asked to reciprocate and offer the same thing for one of their own (such as Obama,) the chances of obtaining those same documents for that person are slim to none.
But such is the way of the democrat, “succumb to my demands, but never shall I succumb to yours.”
Think about this folks………let’s tell Obama….Palin showed us hers, now show us yours………
Please no Anthony Weiner jokes now!
How to Not Burn a City!
Anybody with a brain and who is half way paying attention already knows Obama has released his Birth Certificate or Certificate of Live Birth. Henceforth, known as “the FBC” or Fraudulent Birth Certificate. If you have a body temperature over 60 degrees and the ability to come up with the answer to two plus two, you have figured out the FBC is fake. Jerome Corsi has written a wonderful book called “Where Is The Birth Certificate” and he makes the case without a shred of doubt that Obama is an illegally elected president because he is not a Natural Born Citizen by any definition of the term. In fact, it is more than likely his parents weren’t even married and he was indeed born in Kenya. Without regard, it cannot be proven that Obama was born from Two American Parents and that disqualifies him from even running for the Office of President. However, at the moment, president he is. Millions of us patriots know this cannot stand and we already know not only was the FBC a total joke, but the fact that Obama endorsed it as being authentic makes him complicit to a felony. Rather than point to gobs and gobs of links proving the FBC is indeed fake, I want to discuss why so far nothing has been done. For those of you who still maintain the document is real, simply go to www.youtube.com and type in the search window “adobe illustrator and birth certificate. That’s all you have to do. Pick out three or four random videos and watch and listen to people who are proficient in the two graphics programs, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, explain how this document was put together. We were told it is a scan of the original and you will see for yourself just how phony it really is. If you are still in doubt, go to any search engine such as www.google.com or www.ixquick.com and type in “Obama and birth certificate and fake” and yet more evidence will come up. Then, after doing all this, ask yourself if all these people are lying or could it possibly be Obama is lying. If you can’t come up with the right answer, you are indeed brain dead and beyond redemption. You have put yourself in the sub-human defective class where no matter what is presented; you will always believe Obama is “the real deal”…which he is not.
Knowing all this you now have to proceed to the next step. This requires some logical reasoning along with some clever deduction. If Obama is indeed a fraud and shouldn’t be the president, why is there nothing being done about it? Millions of us are asking that same question. Many, but not all, have come to the same conclusion on that perplexing problem. Why is Obama still there? The answer is simple and if you haven’t figured it out, here it is in a nutshell. It’s called “racism” and it’s not what you think. It isn’t the white man being prejudiced against the Black man; it’s just the reverse. If Obama is removed from the Office of President, there will be rioting in the streets. Cities will burn. There will be social unrest, as we’ve never seen because American’s first Black president will have been removed by “whitie”. Blacks will not believe, nor care, that Obama violated the Constitution. They will see this as strictly a race issue. That is what the people in power are afraid of and that’s why it looks like nothing is being done. They may be right, those people in power. It is quite possible our cities will burn and there will be rioting. Do we want to really take that chance or is there a better way to follow the Constitution and still get Obama out of office? I think there is.
Would it not make sense that the Obama Administration knows their time is up? They aren’t stupid. They know if they want to push this issue, they will lose and many of them will go to jail. Many of them participated in this charade. They falsified documents and withheld information and those are crimes punishable by jail. If this were to go “that” route, the end result would be jail time for Obama, Pelosi and many others. They are culprits in a crime and a cover up. During this process of hearing the evidence, again…riots may ensue. We just don’t know.
Is there another solution? Is there a way to get Obama out of office, have him do no jail time and yet comply with the U.S. Constitution? The answer is a simple “yes”. Here’s my theory. Obama knows he has to go. He has told Fox News and all the conservative pundits to “keep a lid on it” for a certain amount of time while they get their story together. This criminal administration has to come up with an organized and believable way to leave office. Obama has to have an excuse to resign. What that excuse might be, I do not know. I’m sure he is demanding to save face. He might blame the Republicans for standing in his way and preventing him from doing the “first class” job he was elected to do. He might say if he can’t do something 100%, he just can’t live with himself so he is going to resign. This is just my opinion but it makes sense. It makes more sense than Fox News, Rush, Hannity, Ingraham, Beck and Levin along with many others not mentioning the FBC. They have to know it is indeed phony. If we know it, they know it. The deal is to sit on this story while Obama plans his exit. That makes sense to me but I’m not sure if everybody will agree. We do know Jerome Corsi can’t get on Fox News. How likely would that be in “normal times”? Here is a man who has written a book with enough evidence to get the president of the United States of America removed from office. Why would Fox News not want to interview this man? Look what he already did with John Kerry and the Swift Boaters. Corsi’s credentials are without reproach and his research is without fault. There is something in the works. If it’s not this, I’m not sure what…but something is going on. As of today, June 8, 2011, we have not seen Obama on TV telling us what to do or what’s he’s done or what he’s going to do for a few days now.
It must be killing Rush, Hannity and the gang to not be able to talk about this. I remember a few nights ago when Michelle Malkin was on with Hannity and the birth certificate issue came up and they quickly brushed it aside as if it didn’t even exist. If my theory isn’t correct, and Obama remains in office, we will have lost our country. It would mean the Constitution is no longer valid and the Supreme Law of the Land. I refuse to believe there are people in very high places that would allow this to happen. Let’s hope, for all our sakes, Obama is gone…and soon.
Anthony Weiner has Many Problems, but Serving Constituents Shouldn’t Be One of Them
In yet another sex scandal by a congressional servant, but this time we have a notoriously combative narcissist who views every interview as another opportunity to do battle. Anthony Weiner has many psychological problems, stemming from narcissism, but ending in sexual insecurities.
I wouldn’t fault him for seeking psychiatric help for his problems, but his pathological lying is certainly not what his constituents need or want. In his press conference he was apologetic for the first time, he was humble to a point, but lapsed right back into his narcissistic self as the press conference went on.
He has always shown certain anger to anyone that disagrees with him, and shown a childish trait of wanting to scold an interviewer when the questions take a turn that he doesn’t like. For some reason the Democratic Party seems to like these traits and at first was trying to defend him. Pelosi’s actions yesterday took another turn, as she filed to have Weiner’s action heard by the ethics committee. Pelosi and Reid are preparing to throw Weiner under the proverbial bus.
The blatant disregard for his wife of just 5 months shows that he doesn’t care who he tramples to get what he wants. His wife has a very public life as Hillary Clinton’s assistant, and this can be just as damaging to her, as it can be to him. Weiner’s narcissism was challenged yesterday as he admitted his lies to the press, but make NO mistake it was his narcissism that made him announce that he was not resigning. He will never do that, his nature won’t allow it; he will have to be dragged from his seat kicking and screaming.
I’m confused Mr. President, could you please answer a question for me?
If Russia, or Iran, or Afghanistan, or say Cuba was invading our southern border, would you defend us? Then why sir are you avoiding the situation and ignoring the very thing you swore an oath to do? During your inauguration you promised to uphold the Constitution and to protect the citizens of this country, and yet during your 2 ½ years in office you have done neither!
You have continually violated the Constitution that the conservatives of this country hold dear. You view the Constitution as a “living document”……..aka a moving target, and yet most of the American people view it as the laws that govern us. You refuse to admit that according to even the liberal MSNBC online poll that 96% of America agrees with the Arizona law against illegal aliens. Why is it that WE see the need for Arizona to protect themselves when you won’t? Why is it that the Arizona law mirrors the federal law that YOU refuse to administer?
We see Americans being killed on their own property, while you insist on apologizing to a critical Mexican President. We see American citizens being denied the ability to even visit the Arizona areas south of Phoenix because of the Mexican drug lord invasion of our country.
What country has to invade us before we react to repel the invasion? Is any one country worse than another?
Our President has shown through his actions in the past 2 ½ years that he wants to multi task, by shoving every social initiative down our collect throats, and yet he can’t seem to address an invasion of our country!
You wanted this job sir, now act like a leader and do something about it or we will find someone who will!
Why Does Obama Claim Support of Israel Then Support the Palestinians?
The Obama Administration has held a cold shoulder to Israel since the inauguration. They have basically shut Israel out of the intelligence loop since day one, and although they claim allegiance to Israel, their actions say something different.
The rising anti-Semitic sentiment is nothing new in the Arab world, but it seems that it is on the rise in America. Once again the barbaristic attitude against Jews is reaching the same crescendo that it did in 1938. The bigotry and hatred shown by Hitler has been replaced by the Muslim world as they continue to paint the Palestinian people as the victims, rather than the oppressors.
Quality of life for Palestinian people under Israeli rule has increased according to the Palestinian Authority's Central Bureau of Statistics. As demonstrated here:
According to the report, Israeli control over Judea and Samaria has had an
enormous positive impact on civil infrastructure and improved accessibility to
basic resources like water and electricity, as well as opening the region to the
Israeli labor market, which has brought a significant increase in
Quality of lifeThe situation of the Palestinians today is better off
than the Arab citizens in many measures, including: The percentage of
expenditure on food, the percentage of expenditure on housing, private ownership
of houses, ownership of mobile phones, Internet accessibility, population,
literacy rate and longevity.
GDPIsraeli 'Occupation' between 1967 and 1993,
after which the PA began administering sections of Judea and Samaria under the
Oslo Accords, resulted in a rise in per capita GDP from 904 to 3392 NIS. Under
the PA this number dropped to 2293 NIS.
Water supplied almost all Arab
communities in Judea and Samaria with water pipes between 1967 and 1993,
bringing the number of homes with indoor plumbing to 90%. The total water supply
doubled from 64 million cubic meters a year to 120 million as a result of
improved water access.
Life expectancy Arabs in Judea and Samaria have seen a
steady increase in life expectancy from 54 to 74 since 1967, close to that of
Israelis, and higher than the median life expectancy of 65 in most Arab
Literacy rates 92% of Arabs of Judea and Samaria are literate,
compared to a median of 67% for the Arab world as a whole.
penetration 55% of Arabs in Judea and Samaria, benefiting from Israeli high-tech
infrastructure, have internet access - a figure significantly higher than almost
all Arab nations today.
Prefer Israel 58% of Arab residents in East Jerusalem
prefer to continue living under Israeli sovereignty rather than being annexed to
It seems clear that the “oppressor” label given to the Israelis holds no credible claim. If the claim were true it seems ridiculous that the oppressor would first increase the quality of life for the oppressed first.
Maybe our president should read this report BEFORE his idiotic demand to return to the Israeli borders of 1967!
