Jews Demand Open Borders for USA, But Use DNA to Keep Israel Racially Pure

Jews in America are 100 percent united in demanding “open borders” and “immigration reform”—but at the same time hypocritically support Israel which now uses DNA tests on potential immigrants in order to keep the Jewish state racially pure.

Just this past weekend, nearly 1,300 rabbis and a number of cantors from all streams of American Jewry joined together to call on the US Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

In a letter sent to the Congress, which they also published on their website, the rabbis said that immigration reform was “in keeping” with the “Jewish High Holy Days” demand of “the spirit of self-examination as individuals and as a society.”

The letter was signed by leading clergy of the Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and Reconstructionist movements and called for “common sense immigration reform” to reflect a “shared commitment to a path to citizenship, improved family reunification policies, humane and effective border security, sensible worker visa policies, and avenues for refugees and asylum seekers.”

The letter went on to say that Jewish history “coupled with the most-often repeated Biblical commandment to love the stranger inspires our advocacy for immigration reform…”

This is not the only such statement by the organized Jewish community in America. Just this past week, the director of Washington operations for the National Council of Jewish Women, Sammie Moshenberg , was among more than 100 activists arrested for a “sit-in” pro-immigration protest at the US Capitol building.

The American Jewish Congress (AJC), the single largest Jewish organization in America, has a special advocacy group set up to promote “immigration reform.”

According to the AJC website devoted specially to promoting nonwhite immigration into America, that Jewish organization boasts that it “promotes a fair and just immigration policy consistent with our position that a strong America is vital for global freedom and security.

“National conflict over immigration undermines America’s strength and our country’s commitment to democratic and humanitarian values. With our shared immigrant experience, the Jewish people understand that upholding the rights of immigrants is vital to a strong America,” the AJC says.

An article in the Jewish newspaper, the Daily Forward, announced that “Jews Unite Behind Push for Immigration Reform” and significantly added that “Ethics and Self-Interest Drive Unusual Nationwide Effort.”


The Daily Forward article says that those “leading an active push for the [immigration reform] bill, which will offer a path to citizenship for some of the nation’s 11 million undocumented aliens, include the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Bend the Arc and the National Council of Jewish Women.

“The Senate vote—and the even harder struggle that will follow in the Republican-controlled House—represents the fulfillment of a sustained campaign by the Jewish community for immigration reform, which has built momentum over the past decade.

Quoting the president and CEO  of an organization called the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)—which used to promote Jewish immigration, but now promotes all nonwhite immigration into America,  Mark Hetfield, the Daily Forward said Jews promoted immigration because it was in their ‘strategic interest.’

“It’s the ethical thing to do,” said HIAS president and CEO, of the community’s immigration reform activism. But he quickly added, “It’s in our strategic interest.”

However, in Israel—which all of these Jewish organizations and individuals quoted above support fanatically—an immigration policy which is the exact opposite is rigorously enforced.

Israel’s “Law of Return” immigration policy is actually based upon the Nazi Nuremburg race laws, which defined a Jew as anyone with two or more Jewish grandparents.

This law of return is not based on religion—because Jewish atheists also qualify for settlement in Israel. They do not have to be believing Jews to come to Israel—all they have to have is biological Jewish ancestry.

In addition, it is illegal for Jews to marry non-Jews in Israel—another direct carryover from the Nazi laws concerning race.


Israel also has a zero tolerance policy for asylum seekers. They have set up concentration camps in which thousands of Africans are interred awaiting deportation, and most recently, the Jewish state announced that it was deporting all Africans to Uganda, no matter which country they originally came from.

Israeli concentration in southern Israel set up to hold African asylum seekers.

Finally, Israel has recently announced that it is to start testing immigrants for Jewish DNA before allowing them to settle in Israel. This significant move (because it confirms a biological basis to Judaism) came about because of concern in Israel over suspected non-Jews entering Israel from the former Soviet Union countries.


Israel, therefore, has a completely racially-based immigration policy, and only allows people of biological Jewish descent to immigrate to that nation.

This policy is directly contradictory to the position taken by Jewish groups in America and other European nations—yet these same Jewish organizations will defend Israel to the last.

To put this into perspective: If America, or any nation for that matter, had to adopt racially based immigration policies and check the DNA of potential immigrants before allowing them to settle, these Jewish organizations would be up in arms and screaming “Nazi” and “holocaust” from the rooftops.

Yet Israel can adopt such policies without anyone raising so much as a peep of protest. On the contrary, these same Jewish organizations will fanatically support Israel’s “right to be a Jewish state.”

Why do Jews promote nonwhite immigration into European nations while simultaneously supporting Israel’s racially based immigration policies? This is a topic which cuts to the core of the question, and is addressed in the last section of this book.


America, A Converted Nation

Much has been made about my Facebook post that I did last Saturday when I decided to withdraw any past or future support for the candidacy of Donald Trump for many reasons.  The first reason was due to Trump’s support for the fake state of Israel and his own statements at last week’s AIPAC conference that he would fight wars for Israel and stand by them.  It goes against my very own existence to give any kind of support or aid to the destruction of any group of people for that was the ways my grandmother raised me since I was born.  The next reason was due to the fact that most of his supporters have a misguided history and perception that they must shut down immigration in this nation to maintain America as a “white nation”.  The last reason was due to Trump’s affiliation with the vast amounts of Jews and the new found rumors and evidence that he is a freemason; it is even a fact that his entire campaign is being directed by Jews!  It’s even more hilarious that many of Trump’s followers (some who detest Jews and their influence) will follow a man who is held in high esteem by some Jews and has married off his children to Jews, whose same grandchildren will also be Jews by both Jewish law and Jewish religion.

The facts of the matter remains that America was never a white nation, it was a nation created to further the Jewish plot of diversity and multiculturalism.  The proof is in the fact that Jews helped push the slave trade into America as a grand plot to eventually push out the whites and make them a minority in several hundred years; now they will gain that desire as whites will become a minority in America by 2050.  The original land that these same whites yell about was originally settled by Native Indians and Vikings and yes, even Africans as they reached the east coast for trade.  Yet, the same Donald Trump white supporters who are willing to overlook Trumps declared love for the fake, racist, and genocidal state of Israel, a nation who embraces racialism for themselves but calls all another nations racist for resisting the evils of diversity of multiculturalism.  Such idiots in The Cause have lost my support and trust as they have sold out their own values in order to side with a man who wishes to ban immigration into America.

Yet these same white idiots are missing the point in that as a converted nation, America was never designed to be a land to be ruled by whites but only to be ruled by Jews and Freemasons as a fully diluted racial group of brown people would eventually outnumber the whites allowing for full Jewish hegemony over the land. Most Americans are either immigrants or descendants of immigration, yet another plot by the tribe to ensure that there can be no national identity, no core values, no moral values, no moral codes, only a blurred history that they can write and create and manipulate to their heart’s desires.  It is long time that many in The Cause stop relying on political leaders based on false or inconclusive evidence that they are not really working for the Jews.  Who is to say that this isn’t yet another Jewish plot to have the public back Trump (just like Barack Hussein 2008 campaign) only to create more economic havoc and destructive wars for their own profits and benefits.

The video that I will create later next week will deal more in detail about the cowardice facing members of The Cause who are unwilling to simply lead their own people, in the same manner that Matthew Heimbach is doing for whites in America by encouraging them to separate from the government and to embrace racial futurism.  I still must ask the delusional Trump supporters, how exactly will he build a wall on the Mexican border, or deport all the illegal immigrants, or even expose 9/11 when he needs congressional approval from the same Jews and Masons that fully control him, his family, his wife, and his entire campaign?  Hillary (also called Shillary or Killary) Clinton has been the person I have long picked as the next POTUS for it fits in with the Jewish narrative of diversity and multiculturalism and international wars for their greedy banks and fake, zionist state!

World’s obese population hits 641 million, global study finds

London – More than 640 million people globally now weigh in as obese and the world has more overweight than underweight people, according to an analysis of global trends in body mass index (BMI).

A startling increase in rates of obesity in the past 40 years means the number of people with a BMI of more than 30 has risen from 105 million in 1975 to 641 million in 2014, the study found. More than one in 10 men and one in seven women are obese.

BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by their height in meters squared, and is an indication of whether a person is a healthy weight. A BMI score over 25 is overweight, over 30 is obese and over 40 is morbidly obese.

“The number of people across the globe whose weight poses a serious threat to their health is greater than ever before,” said Majid Ezzati, a professor at the school of public health at Imperial College London.

“And this epidemic of severe obesity is too extensive to be tackled with medications such as blood pressure lowering drugs or diabetes treatments alone, or with a few extra bike lanes.”

To try to make a real difference, Ezzati said coordinated global steps were needed, including addressing the pricing of healthy foods versus unhealthy foods, or taxing high sugar and highly processed foods.

Yet excessively low body weight remains a serious public health issue in the world’s poorest regions, the study’s authors said, and rising global trends in obesity should not overshadow the problem of many people not getting enough to eat.

In South Asia, for example, almost a quarter of the population is underweight. In Central and East Africa, about 12 percent of women and 15 percent of men are underweight.

The study, published on Thursday in The Lancet medical journal, involved the World Health Organization and more then 700 researchers worldwide. It analyzed data on weight and height from nearly 20 million adults from 186 countries.

It found that over the past four decades, the average age-corrected male BMI rose to 24.2 from 21.7, and in women rose to 24.4 from 22.1.

This is equivalent to the world’s population becoming on average 1.5 kg heavier each decade, the researchers said.

They predicted that if these global trends continue, 18 percent of men and 21 percent of women will be obese by 2025.

Other key findings of the study were that:

* Japanese adults had the lowest BMIs of all high-income countries, while American adults had the highest BMIs.

* More obese men and women now live in China and the United States than in any other country.

* The lowest BMIs in Europe were among Swiss women and Bosnian men. Men in Britain had the 10th highest BMI in Europe and women the 3rd highest in Europe.

* Morbid obesity, where a person’s weight interferes with basic physical functions such as breathing and walking, now affects around 1 percent of men and 2 percent of women. In total, 55 million adults are morbidly obese.

Windows 10 will bring your Android phone notifications to your PC

Cortana for Android will build up a user notifications store in the cloud, allowing the notifications to mirror onto a Windows 10 PC. The software maker is also planning to allow you to dismiss notifications on an Android phone from a PC. Naturally, this functionality will work for Windows 10 Mobile devices too, but Microsoft won’t be bringing this to the iPhone. That’s largely because iOS is a lot more restricted, and Microsoft’s Cortana app would not have the access required to interact with notifications and respond to messages. Microsoft is planning to bring this notification support to a “future version of Windows,” so it’s likely this will arrive with the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 this summer.

US to beef up military presence in Eastern Europe

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon plans to deploy an armored brigade combat team to Eastern Europe next February as part of the ongoing effort to rotate troops in and out of the region to reassure allies worried about threats from an increasingly aggressive Russia.

The decision will put three fully equipped Army brigades in Europe on a continuous basis, and underscore promises made by defense leaders to protect Europe and send a message to Moscow that any actions against allies would be unacceptable.

According to an announcement released Wednesday, the Army will send a full set of equipment with the brigade to Europe. Earlier plans had called for the Pentagon to rotate troops into Europe, where they would have used a set of training equipment already there.

The new proposal would remove the pre-positioned equipment, send it to be refurbished, and allow the U.S. forces to bring more robust, modern equipment in with them when they deploy. There are about 4,200 soldiers in an armored brigade, along with hundreds of heavy vehicles, tanks, self-propelled howitzers and other equipment.

Sending the brigade with its own equipment, Pentagon spokeswoman Laura Seal said, will also allow the military to practice its ability to rapidly deploy equipment and forces to Europe.

“This will be the most modernized equipment the Army has to offer, and will, over the next year, replace the less modern training equipment we put in Europe over the last few years,” she said.

About 62,000 U.S. military forces are permanently based in Europe, and about 25,000 of those are Army soldiers. Under the new plan, there would be about 29,200 U.S. soldiers in Europe at any given time.

Wednesday’s announcement is also aimed at easing worries in Europe, where allies had heard rumblings about the equipment being removed and feared the U.S. was scaling back support.

Officials also said the Army would send additional communications equipment to Europe so that headquarters units could have the radios, computers and other equipment needed to work with the brigades.

Over the past nine months Defense Secretary Ash Carter has pledged additional military support for the region during trips to Eastern Europe and in NATO meetings.

Last June, Carter announced in Estonia that the U.S. would spread about 250 tanks, armored vehicles and other military equipment across six former Soviet bloc nations to help reassure NATO allies. Each set of equipment would be enough to outfit a military unit, and would go at least temporarily to Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Romania.

In February, the Pentagon announced it would seek $3.4 billion in the 2017 budget to increase troop rotations and military exercises in Europe. The plan would result in the constant presence of a third brigade in Europe. Two are already permanently stationed in Europe — a Stryker brigade and an airborne brigade. And now a brigade will rotate in and out, every nine months or so, on a continual basis.

The 2016 budget included about $780 million for the so-called European reassurance initiative, which covered the costs of sending hundreds of U.S. troops in and out of Europe for short deployments, military exercises and other training missions.

Carter’s proposal to quadruple that amount would allow the U.S. to send more troops to Europe for short-term deployments and also provide additional equipment and improve facilities so that more forces could be accommodated.

The increased U.S. military support comes a year after the Defense Department unveiled sweeping plans to consolidate its forces in Europe, taking thousands of U.S. military and civilian personnel out of bases mostly in the United Kingdom and Portugal, in an effort that was expected to save about $500 million each year.

But, Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine over the past year and its annexation of the Crimea region has worried Eastern European nations, which fear they may be next. The latest Pentagon moves are seen as an effort to deter Russia from taking any further aggressive action against any other European nations.

Russian leaders have denied any intention of future invasions.

“Stories are being spread that Russia will send its tanks into the Baltic states, into Sofia or into Budapest. No one intends to do that. There are no such plans, nothing. Russia does not want war,” Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle. “The very idea of it is ridiculous.”

Suspect dead in Richmond bus station shooting

RICHMOND, Va. —  A gunman shot a Virginia state trooper Thursday at a busy bus terminal in the capital city of Richmond before he was shot dead by two other troopers, police said. Two civilians were hurt, though it was not clear if they had been shot..

Early reports indicated a Virginia State Trooper had died, however Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the trooper is alive, but sustained life-threatening injuries in the shooting.

The trooper and two civilians were transported to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center for treatment. The two civilians who were shot sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Officers responded around 2:45 reports of a shooting at the Greyhound bus station in the 2900 block of N. Boulevard

According to police sources in Richmond, troopers with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation were participating in drug interdiction training at the bus station at the time of the shooting.

The troopers were talking to a man who reportedly handed something to a trooper. Then gunfire erupted. Two troopers returned fire and struck the suspect, according to Geller.

The troopers were in plain clothes but had guns and badges, sources said.

Greyhound says there are two trips from Norfolk every day. The first bus leaves at 8 a.m. and a second bus leaves at 12 p.m. and arrives at 2:30 p.m.

Greyhound tweeted Thursday afternoon that the Richmond station is closed until further notice.

“We are actively working with the authorities,” Greyhound officials stated.

The incident remains under investigation.

Governor Terry McAuliffe said in a statement Thursday that he has offered resources to the state police and Richmond. “Our public safety team and I will continue to monitor the situation and support State Police and local authorities in their response and investigation of this incident,” the governor said. Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones issued a statement saying he was being briefed on the situation.

The Greyhound Bus Station is located west of the city’s downtown area, across from The Diamond, Richmond’s minor league baseball stadium and within a former industrial area. It is located on a main thoroughfare connecting a residential district to the stadium and nearby restaurants.

Brendan Hamilton told the Richmond Times-Dispatch he was about to walk into the station when he heard two loud bangs, then saw flashes of light. He told the newspaper he then heard at least five more bangs. People then started to run out of the building, said Hamilton, 28, who was visiting from Baltimore.

Vincent Smith was working next door to the Greyhound station when he heard sirens and saw police cars buzzing by.

“The police units just poured in like a river,” said Smith, who works at the U-Haul Moving and Storage facility. “I went to the end of the lot and there must have been 30 units just a block away.”

Smith said he saw police officers carrying shields and assault weapons. An officer came by and ordered him and his co-workers to stay inside and lock the doors until they’re told it was safe again. By late afternoon, he said he had been locked inside for about an hour and a half.

City Councilwoman Reva Trammell called it “the saddest day in the city of Richmond.”

“State troopers doing their job and innocent people shot,” she said. “Why? This was a senseless act.”

Arab MK: Israel founded on ‘exploitation, racism, terrorism’

An Arab Knesset member reportedly accused Israel Wednesday of being a terrorist state, saying the government is responsible for systematic discrimination against Israeli Arabs.

Speaking during the main annual Land Day demonstration in the Bedouin town of Umm al-Hiran in the Negev desert, MK Taleb Abu Arar of the Arab Joint List said that Israel is working to expel Arabs from the country, according to Channel 2 news.
“Israel is a state founded upon exploitation, racism and terrorism and is committed to the continuation of the crimes of expulsion [of the Arabs from Israel],” he told the 8,000-strong crowd.

The High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel, an umbrella organization of Arab advocacy groups, organized the demonstration to highlight what it says are discriminatory polices of Israel against the Bedouin inhabitants of the Negev.

During his speech, Abu Arar also criticized Arab Israelis who have joined the Israeli army, calling on them to “take off your uniforms and come back to the path of our struggle.”

Arab citizens are not required to serve in the Israeli military, and, outside the Bedouin community, very few volunteer. Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics puts the number at under 200.

Among the speakers at the Umm al-Hiran event was Joint List leader MK Ayman Odeh, who accused Israel of “carrying out an apartheid policy in the Negev.”

“Arab villages have no roads, no water, no electricity and no education system,” he said. “They face the twinkling lights of Jewish settlements and isolated farms. I have no other name for this thing except for apartheid.”

The village of Umm al-Hiran has become a flashpoint in the public campaign of the Negev Bedouin against government plans to impose new towns and urban planning on their scattered encampments.

The villagers say this plan amounts to displacing the original inhabitants of the area in favor of Jewish towns. Their struggle was championed in 2013 by Adalah, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, because of the perceived strength of their claims to the land, where they have lived since being displaced by Israel from another nearby area in 1948.

Bill Clinton (White Freemason) brings Hillary’s message to leading rabbis

WASHINGTON — Former President Bill Clinton met with over 20 leading rabbis in the New York area to discuss his wife Hillary’s presidential campaign.

The meeting Tuesday in Midtown Manhattan was off the record and lasted for two hours, twice the amount of scheduled time. Participants would not discuss the content.

Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, the executive vice president of the New York Board of Rabbis, called it “constructive” in a brief interview with JTA.

“It’s important to have exchanges with candidates,” he said.

Potasnik, like others attending, was there in a personal capacity and not on behalf of their affiliated groups. Many of the rabbis took selfies with Clinton.

Among others attending were Rabbi Eric Yoffie, the former president of the Union for Reform Judaism; Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, the executive vice president of the Conservative movement’s Rabbinical Assembly; and Rabbi Menachem Genack, the CEO of the Orthodox Union’s kosher division.

Hillary Clinton, seeking to secure her delegate lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., her challenger in the run for the Democratic presidential nod, is stepping up her campaign in New York state ahead of its April 19 primary.

Trump is worse than Obama on Israel and foreign policy, GOP senator says

Donald Trump’s vision of America’s role in the world is worse than that of US President Barack Obama, a senior Republican lawmaker said Wednesday, describing ideas advanced by the front-runner in the race for his party’s presidential candidate as “dangerous” to the entire world.

“I’ve been very critical about President Obama’s leading-from-behind foreign policy and his lack of judgment when to comes to understanding radical Islam and his antagonism, at times, when it comes to Israel,” Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said. “But what I’m suggesting is that what Trump says is worse.”

Graham, who also sought the Republican nomination but quit the race in December, lambasted Obama for failing to understand that the US is the “glue that holds the free world together.”

Yet Trump, he added, “has less an appreciation of that than even Obama. What I hope for is an American president who understands that America must lead from the front, that the relationship with Israel is value added to America, not a drain, and that the world is in chaos and that now is the time to push back against Iran and against Russia, and to bring stability.”

Trump’s suggestion that South Korea and Japan might develop their own nuclear programs to fend off the North Korean threat is “crazy” — since Washington cannot support nuclear proliferation — and his statement insinuating that Saudi Arabia is not an American ally is “very dangerous,” Graham said.

“I believe that if Trump’s the nominee, the Republican Party would get beat badly [in the general elections] and that it puts our House and Senate majorities at risk. I’ve been as open as I know how to be: He would be the worst nominee we could pick.”

In an telephone interview with The Times of Israel, the lawmaker, who led a Congressional delegation to Israel this week, criticized Trump for wanting to remain “neutral” in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and for suggesting Jerusalem pay back the financial aid it receives from the US.

“To suggest neutrality when it comes to the peace process is a misunderstanding of the consequences of the deal. You start the process with a nonnegotiable concept: Israel’s security and its identity as a Jewish state are nonnegotiable,” he said.

“Clearly, neutrality in negotiating a peace agreement is the worst possible signal you could send — to both sides, quite frankly.”

Trump’s statement that Israel return the foreign aid it receives from Washington “is a complete misunderstanding of the value of the relationship between the US and Israel,” Graham said.

“We have economic ties to Israel that benefit the American economy… Without a democratic Israel the whole region would further deteriorate. This is not a drain on the American taxpayer; this is a mutually beneficial relationship, and I can’t think of a better use of American taxpayer dollars than to reinforce a stable democratic Israel at a time of great upheaval.”

Trump, on the other hand, “clearly doesn’t understand the value of Israel to the United States,” the US legislator said.

However, the senator pledged to work with whoever wins the elections — “even it it’s Donald Trump” — to reinforce the relationship between the US and Israel.

“I do want the people of Israel to understand that presidents come and go. But one institution that is enduring is the Congress. Historically, there has been bipartisan support for the State of Israel.”

US-Israel ties are strong, independent of the two countries’ current leaders, Graham posited. “Bibi [Netanyahu] and Obama had their differences. The relationship is bigger than them, it’s bigger than Trump, it’s bigger than [Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary] Clinton. The ties between the countries are deep and binding. We have common values, common enemies and a common view of mankind. That’s the underpinnings of the relationship. Congress, no matter who’s president, is going to be pro-Israel.”

‘I will do everything I can to squeeze some money out of a tight budget to help increase funding for Israel’
The former US Air Force officer criticized Clinton for over-emphasizing Israel’s settlement policy as an impediment to peace — “which it isn’t,” he said — and for supporting the nuclear deal with Iran, which he deems disastrous. However, the senator said the former secretary of state would likely not back a Palestine-related resolution at the United Nations Security Council. But, Graham said, “How she would be on foreign policy is yet to be determined.”

The senator refused to discuss whether Jerusalem should accept the current offer from the Obama administration over an increase in US military assistance to Israel, or wait for the next president and hope for a more generous aid package.

As chairman of the Senate’s Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs, Graham is responsible for foreign aid and military assistance to other countries and multilateral organizations. In the next five years, the threats facing Israel are only going to increase, and “I will do everything I can to squeeze some money out of a tight budget to help increase funding for Israel,” he vowed.

“Israel has to decide what to do and when to do it. But I can say this: we’ll have more money this year than potentially next year, because sequestration kicks back in,” he explained, referring to spending cuts the US federal government enacted in 2013.

“I don’t know who’s going to be in charge of Congress in 2017, but I know I am in charge of the account today. Israel’s got to make a strategic decision, and I’ll leave it up to the Israeli government to figure out how to negotiate this. I’ll do whatever I can as a chairman of this subcommittee that deals with foreign financing to be as generous as possible, realizing the budget is very tight.”

Israel, PA said to meet on future of security coordination

Israeli security officials met with their counterparts from the Palestinian Authority Wednesday night in Jerusalem to discuss the fate of security coordination between the two sides, Palestinian media reported.

The Israeli delegation reportedly delivered its response to a proposal presented last February by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about the fate of security arrangements between the two sides.
The Palestinian news site Safa cited a PA official who said “the results of the meeting will become clear within a few days.”

Abu Yousef, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, told Safa that the committee is set to meet next Sunday with Abbas to discuss a number of issues, among them the fate of agreements between the PA and Israel.

Officials in Israel and the PA have expressed interest in continuing security coordination, even as diplomatic ties have withered amid the ongoing wave of violence and Palestinian terrorism.

However, senior Palestinian political officials have said behind closed doors that the PA has on several occasions warned Israeli officials from the Shin Bet security service, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, and the IDF that security coordination between the two sides could not continue as long as the army operates in the West Bank’s Area A territories, which are under Palestinian security control.

The Times of Israel reported recently that the Palestinian Authority rejected an Israeli offer presented in late February to end IDF operations in Ramallah and Jericho as a first step toward enhancing security coordination, which would later extend to other areas in the West Bank.

Sources speaking to The Times of Israel, Palestinian sources said the Palestinian Authority had decided to reject the Israeli proposal as it did not provide concrete steps toward ending the IDF’s military presence in all major West Bank cities.

The sources added that while Israeli officials were skeptical of the PA’s threats to end security cooperation, the Palestinian governing body was seriously weighing such an option if its demands were not met.

Both sides see the security cooperation as key to keeping Hamas and other terror groups that could threaten Fatah’s control of the PA in check. However, the collapse of the PA would effectively spell the end of any security coordination and likely spiral into a breakout of violence in the West Bank, Israeli defense officials maintain.

Israeli officials have warned that the PA may be on the verge of collapse due to the lack of a successor to the octogenarian Abbas, an unwillingness to hold elections for the presidency, and a surplus of weapons in the West Bank, which could allow policemen, security forces and others with illegal weapons to stage a coup.
