High time to respond promptly to anti-Israeli diatribes

Israel is the target of abuse, among others, of those who claim to care for the well-being of Palestinians and advocate for the respect of their civil and human rights of the Palestinians.

Proposal

I propose  that both Israeli groups and Jewish groups in the Diaspora and if any, Palestinian groups critical of the treatment of the Palestinians by the Palestinian Authority  organise  a coordinated  network  to respond promptly and publicly every time a public person or a group/organisation speaks, writes  or campaigns anywhere in Europe and North America[and in any other country or region the organisers would like to include] against Israel  for oppressing  the Palestinians and breaching their civil and human rights.

The proposed response – One or more questions

If you care so much for the Palestinian people,and

since over 90% of the Palestinians in the West Bank live under the exclusive civil and security administration of the Palestinian Authority:

-What have you done lately to make sure they can elect their government democratically?

-What have you done lately to stop the gang that runs the P.A. and their acolytes stealing monies donated by foreigners for the welfare of the Palestinian people?

etc.

A preliminary list of facts concerning Palestinians living in the Palestinian Authority- to be augmented as events occur

The Palestinian Authority is an illicit government. It has not held any democratic elections since the expiry of the term of office of Mahmoud Abbas since…

The Palestinian Authority does not, never did brook opposition. Those who dare oppose it or act in contravention of its edicts are arrested, harassed and otherwise punished through a variety of means including the withholding of services and/or benefits of one kind of another.

The Palestinian Authority ‘s arrests of  members of the protest movements has been on the increase  and last week  it arrested more than 20 social protests activists who came out against the Authority.

The Palestinian Authority denies its population just about all the rights and freedoms exercised by the citizens of democratic countries, save for the freedom of religion.

The Palestinian Authority does not care for the well-being of   its employees, the public servants  and of their families, among other ways, by arbitrarily cutting their salaries, recently as much as 50% while increasing the benefits it pays to its terrorists and or to their families.

The Palestinian Authority by severing coordination with Israel is failing to protect its population against the second wave of Corona.

The Palestinian Authority is as corrupt as any corrupt government can get .Sizeable amounts of the monies it receives by way of assistance from the E.U. and other countries for the benefit of the population, ends up in the pockets of the ruling gang and others designated by it.

Recently, an Israeli Palestinian petitioned the Israeli government not to provide the Palestinian Authority with financial assistance on the ground that such a loan would breach the human and civil rights of the people living under the Authority.

A number of Palestinians welcomed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s statement of intention to extend Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and parts of Samaria and Judea as they expressed to live under the Israeli democratic way of life than under the corrupt Palestinian Authority.

Palestinian Authority promptly arrested those Palestinians.

Many Palestinians, particularly in rural areas, prefer to have the Israeli citizenship and in any event live under Israeli rule than under that of the Palestinian Authority.
