1. How Many Palestinians Are There
Israel Resource Review
Showdown Brews Between Obama, Congress Over Accuracy of Count of Palestinian
By JEROLD AUERBACH

A showdown is brewing in Washington over how the number of Palestinian Arab
refugees is being counted, and it could be explosive. This is because numerical
accuracy would undermine claims by the Palestinians that before long, if their
demands are not granted, Jews will become a demographic minority between the
Jordan River and the Mediterranean.
Arithmetical distortions by the Palestinian Arabs have mesmerized the United
Nations, the State Department, NGOs whose identities derive from the Palestinian
determination to be permanent victims, and Israeli politicians who eagerly
incorporate Palestinian misinformation into their critique of Jewish
Upon completion of the first Palestinian census 15 years ago, the head of the
Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics conceded that it was 'a civil
intifada,' a demographic weapon against Israel that specifically targeted Jewish
settlers. Last December the Bureau fired its guns once again, reporting that 2.6
million Palestinian Arabs inhabit Judea and Samaria, the biblical homeland of
the Jewish people where more than 300,000 Israelis now live.
These inflated Palestinian numbers have been sharply challenged by Israeli
demographer Yoram Ettinger, who labels them 'demographic misrepresentations.'
According to his data the PCBS has inflated the number of West Bank Arabs
(actually 1.6 million) by 66%. Its estimate includes more than 400,000 overseas
residents (a violation of international demographic standards), a 'double count'
of 240,000 Jerusalem Arabs, and under-reported Palestinian emigration.
Mr. Ettinger's calculations indicate that Jews now make up 17% of the total
population of the West Bank (while Arabs make up 20% of the Israeli population.)
Between the Jordan and Mediterranean, two-thirds of the population is Jewish.
Since 1995 Arab birth rates have stabilized while annual Jewish births have
risen significantly. 'There is a demographic problem,' Mr. Ettinger concedes,
'but there is no demographic machete at the throat of the Jewish state.'
The flip-side of Palestinian demographic distortion is the persistent claim that
5 million homeless 'refugees,' scattered throughout the world, enjoy the right
of return to their lost homeland (Israel). The United Nations Relief and Works
Agency was established in 1948 to provide support for the 750,000 Palestinians
(some 30,000 of whom are still living) who lost their homes during Israel's war
of independence in 1948 and either chose to leave or were forced out. It has fed
Palestinian grievances by deciding that all 5 million descendants of the
original refugees are also eligible for support, now amounting to $1.23 billion
2. Syrian rebels abduct 5 top Hizballah commanders (Used Israeli Intelligences
DEBKAfile Special Report
01 June. Despite the deep secrecy surrounding the incident, DEBKAfile reports
exclusively that unidentified commandos this week kidnapped five top Hizballah
commanders, naming them as Ali Safa, a senior officer of Hizballah's
intelligence service and nephew of Hassan Nasrallah; Hussein Hamid, Dep.
Commander of Hizballah forces in South Lebanon; Ali Zerayb, member of its Jihad
Council; Hassan Arzouni, chief of intelligence in the Bin Jbeil district
bordering on Israel; and Aras Shoeib, head of training in the Beqaa Valley of E.
After a 25-year record of kidnap and murder against Israelis, Americans and
other Westerners, HIzballah was dismayed to find the shoe on the other foot. The
commandos, guided apparently by precise intelligence beamed down from a hostile
aircraft, commandeered a Hizballah vehicle driving through Syria and captured
the five top-ranking Hizballah officers. A sixth escaped and reported the
incident in Beirut.
3. Evil. Most Islamic Extremism Terrorism (Taliban, Al-Quada, Mulsim Brothers,
Sudan) funded by Saudia. Terminology.
Saudia receives its money from US oil interests. It uses part of this money to
fund the propagation of Extremist Islam throughout the world.
Salafi means fundamentalist literal Islam. The Muslim Brothers in Egypt are
Salafists. The Wahabis in Saudia are also Salafists. There is some overlap
between the Wahabis and Muslim Brothers.
They tolerate and reinforce each other. The Wahabis however incline more to
imagining God as a kind of super human being with arms, legs, etc. Al-Quaeda
founded by Osama bin Laden who was responsible for the attacks on the USA Twin
Towers on September 9th, 2001. Al-Quaeda received its funding from elements in
Egypt, Saudia, and Kuwait as well as from the heroin trade of Afghanistan. Osama
bin Laden was protected by the regime in Pakistan and by the Taliban in
Afghanistan. The Taliban appears to be directed in part from Saudia.
Muslims in general are divided between Sunnis and Shiites. The Sunnis are the
majority and today are dominated by Saudia. The Shiites are tools of Iran.
Sunnis and Shiittes often work together. In some places (e.g. Iraq) however they
are in open conflict.
All of the above may be discussed by Brit-Am in a future article.
The Muslim Brothers and Saudis are also active in Russia and in regions of the
former Soviet Union.
J. Millard Burr: The Caucasus Causation.
Following in the wake of a Soviet diplomatic success, the Soviet Penetration of
Egypt began in earnest in the late nineteen fifties. From that date forward the
existence of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimun) was of particular
importance. The knowledge of the Ikhwan and Egypt's other Islamist groups would
prove to be of significant importance following the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan in December 1979. Indeed, the Soviet intelligence agencies followed
very closely the growth of the Islamist (Salafist) movements, both abroad and in
4. PM Binyamin Netanyahu is Accomplished.
Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu has a style that appeals to many but not so much to
people like yours truly.
Nevertheless, he has many accomplishments and should not be under-estimated.
His father was a great historian and his brother a war hero. His fifteen-year
old son received second place in the national Bible Quizz.
Bibi himself served in an elite commando unit in the IDF.
Bibi earned academic degrees in record time. He is considered a chess player of
almost championship standard.
As an orator, especially in English, and an exponent of the Israeli cause he has
no equal. He charms women and leads men.
He is also modest and has a sense of humor.
He got to where he now is with a lot of help but also against much opposition.
There are also negative points but leave these to another time.
Bibi is physically fit, strong, and keeps in shape.

7. MK Michaeli: Ch. 10 encouraging kids to be gay
Yisrael Beytenu MK Anastasia Michaeli charged Channel 10 with broadcasting
programming that encourages children to be homosexuals, Army Radio reported on
Speaking in a closed session of the Knesset Committee on the Status of Women on
Wednesday, Michaeli said, "unfortunately, when I turn on Channel 10, I see
so-called entertainment shows showing how nice it is to be gay." She added: "We
need to find out why Channel 10 has a right to broadcast this content that my
children see, and hear that it's fun and nice to put on make up and dress up in
Michaeli also claimed that there was a direct correlation between sexual abuse
and homosexuality. "I think that most homosexuals are people that experience
very difficult sexual abuse from a very young age. In the end they commit
suicide when they are 40."
