Axios reported, U.S. urges Israel to take steps to stabilize Palestinian Authority.

It’s an old story; the Arabs cause trouble and Israel is blamed. Two examples of this pattern are;

  1. After the intifada in 2001 in which 1038 Israelis were murdered, President Bush sent Sen Mitchel to Israel on a fact-finding mission. He produced the Mitchell Report in April 30, 2001, which recommended, inter alia, the freezing of Israel settlement activity  … and other Israeli confidence-building measures, and;
  2. Every time Hamas fires rockets by the hundreds at Israel civilians. When it defends itself, Israel is blamed. The solution demanded was that Israel negotiate a ceasefire and make concessions.

The same applies to the situation in Israel and Judea and Samaria

The Government of Israel has documented the Wave of Terror 2015-2022.

This year alone it records: 1328 attacks, 19 deaths and 51 injured.

The Oslo Accords provide that in Area A, the Palestinian Authority (PA) is entirely responsible for security, in Area B, the PA and Israel have joint responsibility and in Area C, Israel is solely responsible.


As IDF Major General (res.) Gershon Hacohen explained on the Mideast News Hour this week, over the past year, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) has transformed the Jenin area into a Gaza-like terror enclave in northern Samaria. It exerts control over Jenin and all areas of the region. Recently, Iran has funded the formation of joint PIJ, Fatah, PFLP and Hamas terror cells throughout Judea and Samaria.

Khaled Abu Toameh wrote on this situation a few months back. Jenin: Despite economic prosperity, PA failed to disarm militiamen :

Since then (2002), the armed groups in the camp and other places in the Jenin area have managed to rebuild a vast network of terrorist infrastructure. The PA was not eager to combat the phenomenon and often chose to look the other way.

The PA leaders did not want to be accused by Palestinians of cracking down on “the fine men of the revolution,” especially in a place like the Jenin refugee camp, which became a symbol of the Palestinian “struggle” against Israel.
