Will Margot Wallstrom Be Known as the Mother of Palestine?

Margot Wallstrom, the outspoken anti-Israel Swedish Foreign Minister is at it again. This time she sent out the following tweet as she left a meeting in Ramallah:

And then there is this one:

Of course Wallstrom is not new to the anti-Israel camp. 2 years ago she accused Israel of executing “Palestinians” without trial.  She has continuously attacked Jews living in Judea and Samaria as “obstacles to peace” while ignoring terror attacks carried out by Arab terrorists against Jews in Israel.

With Sweden taking the reigns at the UN Security Council after January 1st Wallstrom is more than ready to take aim at Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

“We discussed our (upcoming) presidency,” Wallstrom said after meetings in Ramallah with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, according to the Swedish Expressen newspaper. “We hope that it will be possible for the Security Council to adopt a resolution on the settlements.”

All of this would be typical of the EU and many of its more anti-Israel members. In most years these statements and votes barely cause a yawn, but with Obama looking to make some sort of world changing impact before he leaves office in 33 days, abstaining from a Swedish resolution that would in effect delineate the final borders of Israel is all too possible.  If the resolution passes Wallstrom will become the mother of Palestine. A mantle she will cherish.


Yes Orly, We Do Care About Dead Palestinians

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]ommentator and Left wing activist Orly Noy of the far Left 972 Mag wrote an article entitled: When do Israelis care about dead Palestinians? She asserts that the current outrage against far Left Agitator Ezra Nawi over his bragging of getting Palestinians killed by the PA over their property sales is pure politics. She compares this to the lack of outrage over hunger striking Muhammad al-Qiq a Palestinian journalist arrested by Israel on behalf of the Palestinian Authority because he criticized PA policies.

Orly says the following: “All of a sudden the entire country has come together, concerned about the possible wrongdoing to a Palestinian from the occupied territories. All of a sudden Abu Khalil’s life — and death — have become meaningful for Israelis. All of a sudden the Israeli public cares about a dead Palestinian.”

Israeli society is outraged about what occurred with Ezra Nawi, because it is at its core hypocritical. There is one thing to say you support Palestinian rights . I may disagree with that, but it is part of discourse. Yet, using your stature as a Palestinian rights activist to turn trusting Palestinians over to an abusive leadership simply because one disagrees with Jewish Land purchases is patently hypocritical and sick.

Orly is right though, the Israeli government should stop working to prop up the Ramallah regime.  The only difference between Orly and myself is what should replace it.  Land of Israel activists believe the best and most humane solution is to annex Judea and Samaria, which will end the occupation.  The result of this would actually give the Palestinian Arabs that are law abiding the chance to have a far better life as part of the Israeli civil society.

Something tells me Orly Noy would disagree.
