The US Congress did the right thing, and commissioned its own independent GAO investigation of the school books used by the Palestinian Authority and UNRWA to educate the new generation.
Full disclosure: Our news agency and think tank appeared on nine occasions in the halls of Congress, 2005-2016, as we reported our examinations , over the years of their 364 new Arabic language school books
We conducted these studies with the help of two Phd’s in Islamic Studies, while we commissioned Arab news teams to film their schools
We got plenty of heat from the Bush Administration and Obama administration, neither of which would examine the new books.
Yet both sides of the aisle in the Senate Near East Subcommittee and the House Middle East Subcommittee took this work seriously and gave full support.
Senator James Risch (R-Idaho), chairman of the Senate Near East Subcommittee, took our reports seriously enough that he used his authority as subciommtitee chairman to commission a thorough GAO study, whose conclusions were more powerful than ours…which found that the PA and UNRWA, with US funds, was preparing a new curriculum of total war indoctrination against the Jews.
So where is he set up for the kill?
Simply put: Trump censored the GAO Congressional report on the PA/UNRWA school system.
The classification of that GAO report is so massive that Senator Risch told our correspondent in DC that if he even opens the report, he could be arrested.
Now for the second example of an egregious the Trump Administration Israel policy decision.
Trump correctly moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, yet will not allow for US recognition of Israeli soverereignty over Jerusalem.
US documents issued in Jerusalem continue to say “Jerusalem”, with no mention of Israel.
Therefore, Israel will not allow building permits for the Givat Matos neighborhood in Jerusalem, contiguous to Gilo, because of US opposition.
These two examples are a sign of things to come.
What should happen?
The time has come to organize events, activities and studies to galvanize a wide range of people in israel into action, so as to to stifle such US policy options.
We already have gotten a taste of things to come.
