Arab Israelis more afraid of external attack on Israel than Jewish Israelis

"Israeli Arabs are more afraid than the Jewish public of being attacked by an enemy state, according to the annual ‘National Resilience’ survey.

"Israel’s Jewish population, meanwhile, is more calm than ever about the possibility of an attack by an enemy country, the survey revealed, reporting an all-time low on its so-called ‘fear index.’ This is a continuation of a previous trend that began in 2006. The Jewish population’s fear of terror is also reportedly at an all-time low.

"The annual ‘National Resilience’ survey has been conducted since 2000. Most recently it was conducted in November during Operation Pillar of Defense, polling 2,000 respondents, including 400 Arabs. Questions covered topics such as optimism, militancy, faith in government institutions, and fear regarding a possible attack."

Honestly, I don’t understand what the drama is with Palestine’s move at the UN today. They’re still not a sovereign state. They’re not an independent authority with the rule of law over a specific region geographically. “President” Abu Mazen cannot even enter Gaza, a part of his “state.”

Frankly, the pro-Israel community is wasting its time fretting over this, especially since it’s “ascension” is as a non-member observer state. In reference to to the use of the word “state,” it’s clearly incorrect; see the above.

I’m glad my Berkeley degree in Political Science taught me at least one useful thing — sovereignty. On that note, rest assured mom and dad, I learned a lot more than that in the last four years…

Syria suffers while "human rights activists" target only Israel

"Imagine the morale booster they would get from an international flotilla! Ships and boats, an armada of morality, led by a former member of the Canadian Parliament, with no one less than the iconic Apartheid-buster, Nobel Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu atop its advisory board. Imagine the international impact of a flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian aid and the critical message to Syrians: YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!
Forget it.

"For these human rights ‘activists,’ Syrians are as good as forgotten. There is no flotilla heading to either of the Mediterranean Syrian ports of Latakia or Tarsus. Instead, it is heading to help the ‘beleaguered’ people of a few miles south in— Gaza.

"But there is no invasion of Gaza, no one starving. Hamastan’s new neighbor—Muslim Brotherhood-led Egypt—has even opened the border for the transit of goods and a whole lot more."

UK's Sky News: Palestine awash with money

"According to the journalist, Tim Marshall, ‘Palestinians are among the most foreign aid funded people in the world and the place is awash with money.’

"Marshall says that NGO workers enjoy being assigned to the Palestinian Authority because, contrary to public perception, the PA territories are relatively safe and comfortable. But Palestine remains a friendly place, welcoming, hospitable, full of air con, hi-fi, wi-fi and wine. Journalists also take advantage of this state of affairs, writing of the poverty and suffering of Gaza for example, before retiring to very expensive sea front hotels after an excellent dinner in one of the expensive fish restaurants.”
