   "Malgré des engagements pris pour faire baisser la tension à Jérusalem, des affrontements ont opposé samedi soir des Palestiniens à des policiers israéliens dans le quartier d'Al-Tur, à Jérusalem-Est [...] faisant au moins un blessé parmi les manifestants. "Des manifestants ont lancé des pierres et des pétards sur les forces de police qui ont utilisé des moyens anti-émeutes pour les disperser", a indiqué la porte-parole de la police Louba Samri à l'AFP. "Il y a apparemment un Palestinien blessé", a-t-elle ajouté. Les affrontements ont fait trois blessés, dont une personne ayant été touchée à la tête qui a été hospitalisée, ont quant à elles indiqué des sources palestiniennes à l'AFP. [...]"

- An Israeli MK visits the Temple Mount, yet Muslims are happy (Elder of Ziyon) - "yesterday an Israeli MK ignored calls from the government for calm, visited the Mount, made provocative statements, and yet caused no controversy in the Arab world. Because this MK is Muslim"; "Two weeks ago, [this israeli MK Ahmed] Tibi said "Jews are not allowed to pray at Al-Aqsa because this is a place of worship for Muslims. While this is a 70-dunam site, every single meter is holy to Islam." Then, as now, there were no infuriated Westerners aghast at this insult to Jews and Judaism, no one calling on him to act with restraint, no one saying that he was inciting violence. The rules are different for Arabs and Jews. Not for Israelis and non-Israelis, not Zionists and anti-Zionists - but between Arabs and Jews".

Gaza & Hamas

- Dans le Sinaï égyptien, les déplacés qualifiés de « terroristes » et de « traîtres » (AFP) - "Des centaines de familles ont dû quitter leurs maisons, avant qu’elles ne soient dynamitées, dans cette langue de territoire qui longe sur 13,5 km la frontière de l’enclave palestinienne de la bande de Gaza" ; "plus de 800 habitations ont été ou doivent être démolies et quelque 1 100 familles déplacées, selon l’armée. Les déplacés, eux, parlent volontiers de « punition collective » à propos des maisons détruites".
http://fr.timesofisrael.com/dans-le-sinai-egyptien-les-deplaces-qualifies-de-terroristes-et-de-traitres/
   "Abou Mahmoud et sa famille n’ont eu que huit heures pour évacuer leur maison de la zone-tampon que l’armée égyptienne établit sur 500 m de large dans le Sinaï le long de la frontière avec la bande de Gaza. Il essuie aujourd’hui la méfiance des militaires, qui le présument « terroriste », et les quolibets des habitants d’al-Arish, à 35 km plus à l’ouest, qui considèrent les déplacés du Nord-Sinaï comme des « traîtres ».
    Des centaines de familles ont dû quitter leurs maisons, avant qu’elles ne soient dynamitées, dans cette langue de territoire qui longe sur 13,5 km la frontière de l’enclave palestinienne de la bande de Gaza. C’est la dernière mesure en date de l’armée dans sa lutte contre les insurgés islamistes qui ont fait de la péninsule du Sinaï leur bastion et multiplient les attentats meurtriers contre les militaires et les policiers. [...]
    Pour le gouvernement, la zone-tampon doit permettre d’isoler les djihadistes dans une zone désertique et d’accélérer la destruction des tunnels clandestins entre l’Egypte et Gaza. Le régime dirigé par l’ex-chef de l’armée qui a destitué Morsi, le président Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, accuse le mouvement islamiste palestinien Hamas, qui dirige de facto la bande de Gaza, comme le principal soutien armé des insurgés égyptiens, par le biais des tunnels dans lesquels transitent combattants et armements selon lui.
    Comme celle d’Abou Mahmoud –un nom d’emprunt tant il redoute des représailles–, plus de 800 habitations ont été ou doivent être démolies et quelque 1 100 familles déplacées, selon l’armée. Les déplacés, eux, parlent volontiers de « punition collective » à propos des maisons détruites. [...]
   « Aux barrages de sécurité, les officiers nous traitent mal et nous soumettent à des fouilles corporelles lorsqu’ils constatent que nos voitures sont immatriculées dans le Nord-Sinaï », dénonce Abou Mahmoud. « Et les civils nous accusent d’être des traîtres lorsqu’ils apprennent que nous venons de là ». Son frère Mohamed se plaint du rôle « extrêmement négatif » des médias, qui tiennent un « discours haineux » contre les populations du Nord-Sinaï, « comme si tous les habitants de cette région étaient des terroristes. »
    Début novembre, le président Sissi avait présenté ses excuses aux résidents déplacés et promis des dédommagements. Mais à Al-Arish, quasiment personne ne plaint les déplacés de Rafah, soupçonnés d’avoir amassé des petites fortunes grâce aux tunnels de contrebande, qui permettent de faire entrer à Gaza carburants, boîtes de conserve, vêtements, matériel de construction et même bétail, contournant ainsi le blocus imposé par Israël [et l'Egypte !?] depuis 2006. Les autorités ont par ailleurs indiqué qu’elles ne dédommageraient pas les propriétaires d’habitations dans lesquelles sont découvertes des entrées de tunnels. [...]"

- Fake civilian of the day (Elder of Ziyon) - "Notice in the second photo Abu Raida is playing with his weapon in a mosque. This photo was taken in September 2013, not during wartime, in case anyone doubts how Gaza terrorists use mosques. There was also a seemingly privately made video honoring him released last month. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights called Abu Raida a "civilian"."

   "Girl on show, reciting poem, wearing pendant in shape of "Palestine" that includes all of Israel: "You stand idly by. Where are you, Arabs?" PA TV host: "Sweetie, bravo, bravo, bravo! What caught my attention is the pendant you’re wearing, which is of course the map of Palestine. The thing that angers the occupation (i.e., Israel) the most is our belief that all of occupied Palestine is ours and will return to us one day. The right of return – the fact that we continue to think about it and don’t forget that we have a land that was stolen from us and will return to us one day – that angers the occupation. Let’s anger them in every way." [Official Palestinian Authority TV, Sept. 5, 2014]"

   "As tension prevails between Israelis and Palestinians in Jerusalem, official Palestinian Authority TV chose to rebroadcast a "documentary" film on the history of the Fatah movement, which contains harsh Antisemitic statements that demonize Jews. The film explains that Jews were expelled from European countries in the Middle Ages because the Europeans "could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government." It also states that these countries "felt they had suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews." Finally, it claims European countries later saw the Balfour Declaration, in which Britain stated that it viewed "with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people," as "an ideal solution to get rid of" the Jews.

- Abbas' third intifada trap, Yaron Friedman (Ynet) - "whether he is interested or not, Abbas must continue the security cooperation with Israel, although it is perceived by the Palestinians as an act of betrayal. He is caught in an equation of survival at the cost of losing legitimacy or supporting the Palestinian struggle at the cost of losing the leadership in favor of his rivals. Is there any way he can still have both legitimacy and a struggle?"
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4592308,00.html
   "Mahmoud Abbas is already 79 years old. The rise to presidency of the man with the misleading appearance of a loveable grandfather raised hopes in the hearts of supporters of the peace process. But the higher the hopes, the greater the disappointment. Last week, the Palestinians marked 10 years since the death of PLO leader and Fatah founder Yasser Arafat. These were also 10 years of failure for Abbas' attempts to reach an agreement based on the 1967 borders.
    Today, it is clear that Abbas does not possess Arafat's abilities to lead the Palestinian people to peace or war. After he witnessed both the failure of the "armed struggle" of his rivals in Hamas and the failure of his negotiations with Israel, the following question is raised: What choices is Abbas left with? Won't an appeal to the United Nations or International Criminal Court worsen his situation? The Palestinian leadership is caught in a trap.
    Abbas himself has lived through almost the entire Palestinian history. At the age of 13 he experienced the 1948 war, and his family fled Safed and settled in Damascus. He devoted his time to his studies while showing a growing interest in the Zionist Movement. After studying at the Damascus and Cairo universities, he arrived in Moscow to write his thesis about what he called "the secret link between Nazi Germany and the Zionist Movement." Later on, he wrote another doctoral thesis on Zionist history. His research in Moscow about the "Zionist enemy" was published in Arabic. He became part of the educational system in Qatar thanks to his academic abilities, and joined Fatah in the late 1960s.
    Although he belonged to the first generation of Fatah, he resided in Damascus and did not participate in the organization's terroristic struggle from Jordan until 1970 and from Lebanon until 1982. Abbas worked to recruit young people to the organization from Qatar and Syria and then served as the PLO's administration and finance manager. He slowly climbed up the organizational ladder until he became Fatah's No. 2 after Arafat, mostly due to the assassination of Fatah co-founder Abu Jihad by the Israeli Mossad in the 1980s.
    Due to his expertise on the "Zionist enemy," he was put in charge of the negotiations with Israel ahead of the Oslo Agreements in the 1990s. Arafat did not let Abbas work when he was appointed prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, leading to his resignation. Only in 2005, after Arafat's death, Abbas was elected president, a position he holds till this very day.
    As an academic and an administration and finance manager, it's only natural that Abbas was not associated with the Palestinian popular struggle and was never particularly liked on the Palestinian street. His popularity also suffered due to his association with the talks with Israel. Many Palestinians today, not only in Hamas, see Abbas as a puppet of the United States and Israel. His declarations against violence and in favor of the peace process have gained him a lot of popularity in the West and among left-wing circles in Israel, but not among his own people.
    Commentators on the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen network estimated recently that a third intifada does not have much of a chance of succeeding, although a national-religious uprising is beginning in the territories and among Israel's Arabs. Unlike the first intifada in 1987 and the second in 2000, however, today's Palestinian leadership is incapable of leveraging the uprising to advance an overall struggle against Israel under its command, as it has lost its legitimacy in the eyes of the Palestinian people.
    Moreover, Abbas has already lost control over the Gaza Strip in the Hamas upheaval in 2007. A third intifada may cause him to lose control of the West Bank as well. Therefore, whether he is interested or not, Abbas must continue the security cooperation with Israel, although it is perceived by the Palestinians as an act of betrayal. He is caught in an equation of survival at the cost of losing legitimacy or supporting the Palestinian struggle at the cost of losing the leadership in favor of his rivals. Is there any way he can still have both legitimacy and a struggle?
    Abbas' despair of the futile negotiations with the Israeli government on the one hand, and his reluctance to adopt Hamas' failed actions on the other hand, have led him to the third option: A diplomatic struggle against Israel. The appeal to the UN to recognize a Palestinian state and force Israel to accept the solution of withdrawing to the 1967 lines is unpractical due to the American veto power. Although Western Europe has begun recognizing a Palestinian state (recently in Sweden and now in Spain), with the lack of Israeli cooperation this move only carries a symbolic meaning.
    The other option is turning to the International Criminal Court in The Hague in order to accuse Israel of committing crimes against the Palestinian people during the IDF's military operation. This way, Abbas will be able to claim that he is joining the Gaza residents' struggle despite his criticism against Hamas' actions during Operation Protective Edge.
    The appeal to the ICC may get Qatar and Turkey in trouble over their support for Hamas. Such a legal claim will lead to cross action on the Israeli side against Hamas for firing missiles at a civilian population, and a criminal commission of inquiry may summon Hamas' leaders. As a result, there will be pressure to turn in Hamas' political bureau chief, Khaled Mashal, who currently resides in Doha, and Sheikh Saleh al-Arouri, a founder of Hamas's military wing, who is taking refuge in Ankara. Not only will Qatar and Turkey be seen as sponsoring terrorist leaders, but an investigation will be launched into the transfer of funds from these countries to Hamas. Such an investigation could also uncover the transfer of funds to other Islamic terror organizations like the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra. It is no wonder, therefore, that Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki referred to an ICC appeal a "double-edged sword."
    The bilateral channel between Israel and the Palestinians has been failing time and again for more than 20 years since the Oslo Agreements. The current terror crisis in the Middle East (with ISIS and its branches) and the Shiite threat (from Iran and its allies) are creating joint interests for Israel and the moderate Sunni axis. An opportunity is being created for a multilateral channel in which Israel and the Palestinians will negotiate as part of a comprehensive agreement with other Sunni countries, including Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states and maybe even north African countries (excluding Libya). The success of Friday's talks between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan's King Abdullah in Amman, which helped calm the situation down and allowed unrestricted Muslim access to the Temple Mount, points to the potential of Arab states' mediation. The end of the crisis with Hamas this summer was also made possible thanks to the Egyptian government's help.
    Abbas has no options left, and his government is caught in a trap. He is afraid of an intifada, afraid to get Turkey and Qatar in trouble at the ICC and afraid to repeatedly face an American veto and the UN and undermine his relations with the American administration. But continuing the security cooperation with Israel without an agreement undermines his legitimacy in the eyes of his people.
    The US and Europe are busy in other arenas right now, mainly in Syria, Iraq and Iran, and the Palestinian issue is being pushed aside. With the absence of an Israeli initiative to launch the multilateral negotiations, the stalemate continues. Abbas is incapable of forcing his authority on Gaza and is incapable of dealing with Hamas. There is a high probability that his survival in the West Bank depends on the IDF's control and that the Israeli presence it is the only thing preventing a Hamas upheaval. [...]"

- Antisemitic article denies antisemitism (Elder of Ziyon)
http://elderofziyon.blogspot.fr/2014/11/antisemitic-article-denies-antisemitism.html
   "Pan-Arab newspaper Al Quds Al Arabi has an article by Ayman Abubann entitled "Anti-semitism: The big lie of Zionism." The author's thesis seems to be that Israelis made up the lie of anti-semitism in order to use it as a tool to shut up its critics. And it includes this little nugget: "Historical research indicates that the Jews of Europe sowed the ground of corruption and the spread of immorality." So if antisemitism is a Zionist plot, and Ayman Abubann is antisemitic, then he must be a Zionist!"

- Nucléaire iranien : sept jours pour effacer dix ans d’échecs, Yves-Michel Riols (Le Monde)
http://www.lemonde.fr/proche-orient/article/2014/11/17/nucleaire-iranien-sept-jours-pour-effacer-dix-ans-d-echecs_4524569_3218.html
   "Le compte à rebours a commencé. Les tortueuses négociations sur le nucléaire iranien doivent reprendre, mardi 18 novembre à Vienne, pour tenter d’aboutir à un compromis final avant le 24 novembre. Cette date butoir avait été fixée par l’accord intérimaire conclu il y a un an à Genève, entre les Iraniens et les grandes puissances regroupées au sein du groupe « P5 + 1 », comprenant les cinq membres permanents du Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU, plus l’Allemagne.
    Après dix ans de tentatives infructueuses, il reste moins d’une semaine pour parvenir à un accord qui ouvrirait la voie à une normalisation des relations avec l’Iran et aurait de profondes répercussions au Moyen-Orient, où Téhéran joue un rôle clé en Syrie, en Irak et au Liban. En revanche, un échec accélérerait à coup sûr une course à la bombe atomique dans une région déjà hautement volatile. L’Arabie saoudite, rival historique de l’Iran, a déjà posé les jalons d’un programme nucléaire civil. Au-delà, c’est toute la lutte contre la prolifération nucléaire qui serait ébranlée. [...]
    Aujourd’hui, chacun sait que plus le temps passe, plus un compromis sera compliqué à atteindre. Le président Rohani, sous haute surveillance des « durs » du régime, a besoin d’un accord pour asseoir son autorité et desserrer l’étau des sanctions. Quant aux Occidentaux, ils savent que plus le programme iranien se développe, plus il sera difficile à freiner. D’autant plus que la prochaine entrée en fonctions d’un Congrès américain dominé par les républicains risque d’amoindrir la marge de manœuvre de Barack Obama. [...]"

   "Le dixième anniversaire de la mort de Yasser Arafat a été le prétexte à un nouvel assaut conspirationniste contre les faits. Sans rencontrer de réelle résistance, la théorie de l’assassinat s'est invitée dans tous les médias qui comptent, de France Inter à RTL en passant par Europe 1, France 3, TV5, Le JDD, Le Point, Atlantico, Le Huffington Post ou RFI. Le principal protagoniste de cette offensive médiatique : Emmanuel Faux, journaliste à Europe 1 et ancien correspondant à Jérusalem.
    Que nous dit l’auteur de L’Affaire Arafat (éditions de L’Archipel) en vente depuis quelques jours pour la somme de 17,95 euros ? Que le raïs palestinien a probablement été assassiné et que, de cet assassinat, la France est complice ; que la conspiration, aux ramifications internationales, a été ourdie il y a plus de dix ans et qu’elle continue jusqu’à aujourd’hui ; qu’au plus haut sommet de la République, on ment, et que des médecins français, des experts scientifiques français et la justice française travaillent à perpétuer ce « mensonge d’Etat ».
