Aaron Klein Exposes the Truth About Illegal Settlement Activity
I recently met my friend, Helen Freedman, at the U CafÃ©. This cafÃ© on the upper east side is my local watering hole, an oasis, a village well, where I meet people for coffee. Sometimes, when it’s quiet, I just sit there and read, as if I lived in Paris, Rome, Warsaw, Vienna, Tel Aviv, or on the lower east side of NYCâ€“but long ago, when a writer had a favorite cafe where he (or she) read their newspapers, pen articles and books, meet other writers to argue, plan revolutions, initiate love affairs, and to dream.
Freedman had just returned from one of her frequent trips to Israel. This time, what amazed her most were “all the illegal Arab settlements” which had grown exponentially “all over Jerusalem.”

Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon Abbas Zaki: Two-State Solution Will Lead to the Collapse of Israel
Following are excerpts from an interview withÂ PLO Ambassador to Lebanon Abbas Zaki, which aired on ANB TV on May 7, 2009:
Abbas Zaki: What is needed is a settlement, not aÂ hudnaÂ [truce]. After 45 years of struggle, we have the right to reach a conclusion to this conflict, rather than extending theÂ hudna>/i>, enabling Israel to expand on a daily basis. My advice is: we should not give Israel aÂ hudna, because whenever Israel is given aÂ hudna, it consolidates its position and becomes more deeply rooted. WhatÂ hudna? If they do not withdraw from the 1967 lands â€“ whatÂ hudna? Israel will become a fact on the ground, and we will end up as small enclaves, and should be driven out with time. Therefore, it is high time that we found a final, comprehensive solution. The Arabs talk about a comprehensive solution and present initiatives, and the world talks about a solution, yet we say: Let’s stick to theÂ hudna. No, my friend. I personally joined Fatah somewhat belatedly, in 1962. Work out how many years that is. Should I keep on extending theÂ hudnas? Impossible. We want a solution now.
“They talk about a two-state solution, and when that is achieved… Even Ahmadinejad, leader of the rejectionists throughout the region, said he supports a two-state solution. Nobody fools anybody.
“With the two-state solution, in my opinion, Israel will collapse, because if they get out of Jerusalem, what will become of all the talk about the Promised Land and the Chosen People? What will become of all the sacrifices they made â€“ just to be told to leave? They consider Jerusalem to have a spiritual status. The Jews consider Judea and Samaria to be their historic dream. If the Jews leave those places, the Zionist idea will begin to collapse. It will regress of its own accord. Then we will move forward.”
3 monkeys reporting:
The Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas will not accept a two-state solution as a means to end the conflict with Israel, the movement’s Damascus-based politburo chief Khaled Meshal said Saturday.
Meshal said that Hamas rejects the two-state solution but could still be part of a national unity government if a Palestinian state is established based on 1967 borders.
Meshal told the New York Times last week that Hamas has agreed with the rival Fatah movement to a state based on 1967 borders, including East Jerusalem, the dismantling of settlements and a right of return for Palestinians. He said such a deal could be the basis for a long-lasting ceasefire. Some analysts saw the remarks as an indirect recognition of Israel.
Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, will continue its dialogue with Fatah in Cairo on May 16. The goal is the formation of a national government.

Muslims protest Jews praying at Temple Mount
“‘The Al-Aqsa Mosque is in our blood; we will never abandon it,’ said Sheikh Kamal Hatib, vice-chairman of the Islamic Movement. However, members of the Islamic Movement said they would keep the peace at the site throughout the day so long as Jewish worshippers are denied access to it.”

From Carl in J’lem:
Reuel Marc Gerecht, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer, has an important article in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal about how the West ought to be talking to Muslims. Hint: Gerecht does not advocate the fawning attitude of the Obama administration. In fact, he doesn’t believe thatÂ George W. Bush went far enoughÂ either (certainly not during the last two years of his administration).
