Palestinian Militant Groups Still 'Committed' to Truce with Israel
By VOA News
Palestinian militant groups have said they remain committed to a truce with Israel,
following meetings with Egyptian mediators in Gaza. The meeting Thursday brought together
leaders of the four main militant groups: Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah and the Democratic
Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Palestinian radio said Palestinian security chief Mohammad Dahlan told reporters
afterwards that the talks had been positive, and that they dealt with the issue of the
truce and national dialogue. The Egyptian delegation was in Gaza to avert a ceasefire
breakdown, because Palestinian militant groups are angry Israel has not released any of
the estimated 7,000 Palestinian prisoners Israel holds.
Later Thursday, Dahlan and Israel's Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz were scheduled to hold
meetings regarding the prisoner issue and Israeli withdrawal from certain areas. But
Palestinian officials said the talks might be postponed until Friday because a suitable
venue for the meeting had not yet been finalized.
Former CIA Director on Israel's Nuclear Arsenal
According to Arabicnews.com, former Central Intelligence Agency Director Stansfield
Turner called for the international community to supervise Israel's alleged nuclear
arsenal. Turner told a gathering at the Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow-Up, in
the United Arab Emirates, that Israel must be pressured to disarm itself from nuclear
Furthermore, Turner asserted that President George W. Bush would not pressure Israel,
other than by calling generically for the implementation of the Road Map. The reason,
according to the former CIA director, is that American foreign and internal policies are
currently being subjugated to winning the next presidential elections.
The Zayed Center, under the chairmanship of the UAE's deputy prime minister and sultan,
has hosted such speakers as the notorious anti-Semite and convict Lyndon H. LaRouche, has
held a symposium on the Holocaust that concluded the Nazi genocide was a "false fable
perpetuated by Israel," and the executive director of the Zayed Centre told symposium
participants that "Jews claim to be God's most preferred people, but the truth is they are
the enemies of all nations. Most philosophers... consider Jews as cheaters whose greed
knows no bounds. Today, after having controlled print and electronic media, they distort
facts to suit their objectives."
'Destroy Israel Conference Scheduled for Rutgers
Despite wide-scale protests and requests for cancellation, Rutgers University in New
Jersey will host a national pro-Palestine student conference in October.
The National Student Conference of the Palestine Solidarity Movement will include
sessions on how to pressure colleges to stop investing in companies that do business with
Israel, as well as cultural events and rallies in support of an independent Palestinian
state. Hundreds of pro-Palestinian student activists are expected to attend.
Organizer Charlotte Kates said that she, as well as the sponsoring organization, the
New Jersey Solidarity Movement - an offshoot of International Solidarity - supports
Palestinian homicide bombers. "Palestinian resistance in all its forms has been a very
powerful tool of justice," Kates, a Rutgers law student, told the New York Post. "All
forms, from armed struggle to mass protest... Israel is an apartheid, colonial settler
state. I do not believe apartheid, colonial settler states have a right to exist."
The Post's Andrea Peyser reported that Rutgers would thus be the nation's third
college, and the first on the East Coast, to harbor "a national anti-Israel hate-fest,
featuring tips for destroying the Jewish state and speeches from notable
Rutgers officials said the school received nearly 230 letters from Jewish activists
across the country urging the university to cancel the forum. But they said that the event
would go on "in the name of free speech." As a state school, Rutgers bestows public
funding to Solidarity. At the two previous conferences - at Berkeley, Calif., and the
University of Michigan - pro-Palestinian rhetoric "crossed into virulent anti-Semitism,"
said Shai Goldstein, director of the New Jersey Anti-Defamation League chapter.
U.S. Christian Radio Host Issues Challenge to Palestinian Church Leaders
By Israel Faxx News Services
In his weekly radio broadcast scheduled for airing next week, Front Page Jerusalem
Radio host, Earl Cox, describes the Palestinian conference recently held in Bethlehem as
an exercise to appease supporters of the Quartet Road Map.
Cox, whose program airs coast to coast in America, charges that the Palestinian church
leaders who attended the conference are misguided and practice faulty theology. He
continues by saying that their ignorance of the Bible is evidenced by their interpretation
and subsequent remarks. Claiming that Zionist Christianity is not connected to
Christianity ignores the biblical roots and therefore the foundation, which includes God's
relationship with the Jewish people and with the land of Israel, Cox added.
In his broadcast, Cox tells his radio audience that "Palestinian Christian leaders are
heavily influenced by the Palestinian Authority. In contrast, American Christian Zionists
are influenced by the Word of God. The Palestinian church leaders have put their own
interpretation above God's Word simply to satisfy their agenda.
"Furthermore," said Cox, "Christian Zionists believe that Israel has a God given right
to the "covenant" land as outlined by God in Genesis chapter 12 where God says to Abraham,
father of the Jewish people," "I will bless those who bless you." He continues his defense
of Christian Zionists by referencing Joel chapter 3 where God says He will restore the
prosperity of Judea and Jerusalem and gather all the nations and bring them into the
valley of judgment and judge them for all they have done to His people. It is because of
these scriptures and others recorded in the Bible that Christian Zionists are vehemently
opposed to the Quartet Road Map, according to Cox.
"The Road Map which is sponsored by the U.S., Russia, the E.U. and the United Nations,
is a deception disguised as a peace plan and will lure all the nations against Jerusalem,"
Cox continued. "In this plan to divide up the Promised Land, the United States, for the
first time, is aligned with anti-Semitic, terrorist nations."
Concluding the broadcast, Cox issues a challenge to Palestinian church leaders to send
a representative to America to defend their position in a radio debate with a Christian
