The Palestinian Authority insists on flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists and the goal is toContinue reading “Why Insist on the Impossible?”

Indigenous Construction does not Thwart Two-State Solution

Recently did an anonymous Palestinian official claim that the Palestinian Authority and the US government see eye to eye on the question of restorative indigenous communities and ostensibly agree that the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria is designed to thwart a two-state solution. Nothing could be further from the truth. The indigenous restorationContinue reading “Indigenous Construction does not Thwart Two-State Solution”
