While the Israel Defense Forces and other Israeli security agencies try to stop the Hamas/Palestinian Arab 2,500 rocket attacks that are pounding Israeli cities and other communities, rioting, fires and other violence, and incitement against Jews—and civil defense agencies make sure that shelters are open and ready—there are steps that we in the Diaspora can take to help.

A murderous co-operation

The public has scant idea of how it is being misled over Israel and the Palestinians

Melanie Phillips
What most of the public don’t realise — because the western media never tells them — is that absolutely nothing exists in Gaza without the approval of Hamas. The only journalists allowed to be in Gaza are those who deliver the story Hamas wants to tell the world. Any journalist who tried to tell the truth about Hamas would be either thrown out of Gaza or murdered. That’s something of a disincentive to telling people what’s actually going on...

Journalists and the Biden administration have been clutching their pearls over Israel’s bombing of what’s been called the “media building” in Gaza City. This was an 11-story tower where outlets such as Associated Press, Agence France Presse, al Jazeera and others had offices.

In the US, President Joe Biden’s press spokesman Jennifer Psaki tweeted that the United States had “communicated directly to the Israelis that ensuring the safety and security of journalists and independent media is a paramount responsibility”. In other words, a public rebuke. Read more.

PA teaches kids “an incredible and beautiful story” about Arab terrorist who murdered 3 Jews

Nan Jacques Zilberdik | May 16, 2021

What is the nature of the Palestinian Authority incitement that has enabled the current violent riots?

One crucial component in the PA’s teachings is that the use of violence and terror are legitimate and even glorious means to fight Jews and Israel to “liberate Palestine.” As Palestinian Media Watch has documented for decades, the PA glorifies terrorists and murderers who “succeeded” in harming and killing Israelis and Jews. This is even done at the children’s level. One recent example:  On a children’s program on official PA TV, a storyteller sat under a tree telling stories to children. He highlights one story that is “incredible and beautiful” and “good to tell” – a story about an Arab terrorist who in the 1930s carried out attacks “against the British and against the Jews” and killed 3:

PA TV storyteller: “Today we will talk about one of these revolutionaries whose name was Hussein Al-Ali Zubeidi Al-Saqri (i.e., Arab terrorist from the 1930s) from the Al-Suqour tribe... A brave person came out of this tribe who wanted to be a hero carrying out true resistance, and he gathered a group –a military team –of men of the area... He would carry out military operations (i.e., terror attacks) against the British and against the Jews and hide in the mountains... The story is incredible and beautiful and it is good to tell it... He carried out many operations with his group, of which two or three operations stood out that we will talk about, and they became famous in history... [For example] the attack on Sakhne... He killed a group of British (sic., Jews) there and therefore the Jews changed its name from Sakhne, the Arab name, to Gan HaShlosha, [Park of The Three, after] those who were killed there.”

[Official PA TV, A Tree and a Story, April 28, 2021]

For almost 3 decades – since 1994 – Palestinian children have heard continuous hate messages about Israelis and Jews, and since the PA started its 5-year terror campaign (i.e., the second Intifada) in 2000, which forced Israel to build a security fence, they have not had any positive direct contact with Israelis. The young generation of Palestinians only knows the PA’s incitement version of history and that is why they tragically have no qualms about using violence and terror against Israelis.

Hussein Al-Ali Zubeidi Al-Saqri was an Arab terrorist who was active in the 1930s and carried out terror attacks against the British Mandate and the Jewish population in Palestine.

Gan HaShlosha - means "the Park of the Three" - was named after three Jews who were killed there when their car drove over a mine on Sept. 14, 1938.



Anti-Semitism is seeping into the United States via college campuses, politics, and the internet. It is evident in both the far-left and far-right political movements that hatred towards Jews is on the rise. The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has put together a new resource to help the Christian community better understand anti-Semitism and how to stop it.

The booklet is available to download for free and we encourage everyone to get themselves a copy and share it with people in their network.
