DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 10, 2015

The Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas has long been dysfunctional.

Palestinian terror claims 5 murders in a day as Hebron swings out of Shin Bet control
DEBKAfile Special Report November 19, 2015

All five murders perpetrated by Palestinian terrorists in Tel Aviv and on the Hebron highway on Thursday, Nov. 19, led back to the Hebron district of the southern West Bank. The current wave of terror is earning the title of “The Hebron Intifada.” While anti-Jewish violence has been endemic to the region since 1929, the current wave was sparked by internal Palestinian strife. It is being exploited by Hebron’s clan chiefs to further their aspirations to seize the Palestinian leadership from Ramallah.

Graffiti defacing wall of burned Palestinian home
Israel’s hysterical self-blame spree will fuel more terror and violence: Not everyone is guilty
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis August 2, 2015

Israeli leaders and media indulged in knee-jerk responses - ‘We’re all to blame” and “”We all ignited the flames” - to two separate, individual Jewish hate crimes, repulsive though they were. Israelis universally condemned the crimes, but that should have been a far cry from collective self-flagellation and loud laments that “The whole house is on fire.” The whole house is not on fire and we are not all guilty, although this was the message President Reuven Rivlin offered the nation Saturday night, July 1, in an outpouring of raw emotion instead of constructive remedies.

Barack Obama plans to punish Israel again
Exclusive: Obama to back Palestinian state at Security Council – payback for Israel’s right-wing cabinet
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report May 6, 2015

debkafile exclusive from Washington: President Barack Obama is to give Europe a green light to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state. Without waiting for Binyamin Netanyahu to present his new government at midnight Wednesday, May 6, Obama decided to punish him for building a right-wing coalition, minus a moderate figure for talks with the Palestinians. French President Francois Hollande and US Secretary of State John Kerry have already briefed Saudi and Gulf rulers on Obama’s new policy.

The Yarmouk Palestinian camp in Damascus in April 2015
Assad looses ISIS against Palestinians trapped in Yarmouk camp - a sinister new partnership
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report April 8, 2015

Obama’s detente with Iran and recognition of Bashar Assad’s key role in Syria has produced an incredibly sinister new twist in the Syrian war. debkafile reveals: The Yarmouk refugee camp and its 16,000 occupants face not one enemy, but two: the Islamic State and Assad’s army, which opened the way for the ISIS attack. Assad first agreed to split energy revenues with ISIS and went on to outsource the terrorists for a demonstration in Yarmouk to allies and foes alike that he holds the whip hand in the Syrian war and the fate of the Palestinians.

Election favorite Zionist Camp leader Yitzhak Herzog
Herzog’s four pledges for his first 100 days as prime minister are unworkable
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis March 14, 2015

Yitzhak Herzog, co-leader of the opposition Zionist Camp party, is tabbed by the polls as Binyamin Netanyahu’s credible successor. However, the same credibility does not extend to his four pledges to the voter ahead of the March 17 election - though sincere. If elected, Herzog vowed in his first 100 days as prime minister to lead the campaign to bring down the prohibitive cost of housing; mend Israel’s relations with the United States, i.e. Barack Obama; revive peace talks with the Palestinians; and create a “regional platform” for Israel’s foreign relations.

Palestinian security forces detain Hamas activists
Palestinian forces detain 500 Hamas West Bankers, to thwart coup and Abbas assassination plot
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report March 10, 2015

Acting on direct orders from Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian special forces raided all nine PA-ruled West Bank towns in the past 48 hours and detained 500 Hamas suspects, debkafile reports. Abbas ordered the operation because he had discovered that Hamas had been hatching a plot for some weeks to stage an armed uprising against the Palestinian Authority, starting in one of the Palestinian towns – possibly even the PA capital of Ramallah – and assassinate him in the process.

Mahmoud Abbas loses his first UN round
Abbas faces more fiascos after the UN rejects his unilateral path to a Palestinian state
DEBKAfile Special Report December 31, 2014

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ motion to dictate a timeline for Israel’s withdrawal to pre-1967 lines and a Palestinian state was defeated at the UN Security Council. Had it mustered the mandatory 9 votes, it would still have been vetoed by the US. Its re-submission next year in the hope of a more pro-Palestinian Security Council lineup will be just as problematic. So will Abbas’ threat to bring Israel before the international court for alleged war crimes. For Prime Minister Netanyahu, the vote was a campaign coup against his rivals' charge that he leads Israel into diplomatic isolation.

A Hamas terror tunnel unearthed in Gaza
How Human Intelligence (HUMINT) works for Israel’s Gaza operation – its crucial eyes on the ground
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 19, 2014

The outcome of Israel’s Gaza operation may be determined just as much by its unseen battle as by hammering Hamas infrastructure and destroying more than a dozen Hamas terrorist tunnels and infrastructure by Saturday morning, July 19, the 12th day of its fight against Hamas. This battle can’t be fought just with sophisticated high-tech gadgetry. Only “boots on the ground” can provide eyes and ears among the local populace, and the cover for agents trained to operate in an Arab environment to gather the information needed for charting the IDF's moves.

Clashes in Shuafat, Palestinian district of Jerusalem
Israeli cabinet’s inaction opens door to surge of violence in Jerusalem and Gaza rocket fire
DEBKAfile Special Report July 2, 2014

Israel’s security cabinet still looked undecided on July 2 after its third special session in two days to map out a response to the kidnapping-murder of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel. But debkafile’s sources report a decision was in fact reached: to hold back from a major military operation in the Gaza Strip, while continuing the IDF’s anti-Hamas campaign on the West Bank - a course strongly urged by Egypt, Qatar and Jordan. The result: unbridled violence in Jerusalem after a Palestinian boy was murdered and 30 rockets launched from Gaza.
