In his speech before a joint session of Congress, in Washington on July 19, 2023, Israeli President Isaac Herzog said, “Palestinian terror against Israel or Israelis undermines any possibility for a future of peace between our peoples.... Terror is not a bump in the road. Terror is hatred and bloodshed. It contradicts humanity’s most basic principles of peace.… The younger generation of Israelis and Palestinians deserve better. They are all worthy of a future to look towards, a future of peace and prosperity. A future of hope.” 

The Initiative for Palestinian Authority Accountability and Reform (IPAAR) will strive to influence decision-makers in both Israel and the international community to hold the Palestinian Authority to account for its continuous, systematic, and fundamental breaches of the internationally witnessed and guaranteed Oslo Accords. 

IPAAR will focus on both the Palestinian Authority’s malfeasance towards Israel and Jews, including, inter alia, terror promotion, antisemitism, “Apartheid” propaganda, and international lawfare against the State of Israel, on the one hand, and the widespread corruption and abuse of human rights of the Palestinians by the Palestinian Authority, on the other.

IPAAR will provide an extensive database of information regarding the practices and policies of the Palestinian Authority that undermine the goal of achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians and advocate that both the Israeli and foreign governments hold the PA accountable for these actions.

IPAAR will also provide a critical research-based analysis of the steps needed to reform the Palestinian Authority and turn it from being an obstacle to peace into a vehicle that promotes a future of peace, prosperity, and hope for both Israelis and Palestinians.

Does the Palestinian Authority Really Want to Return to Gaza?

While some in Israel and the United States are fixated on the question of who would govern the Gaza Strip after the current war, many Palestinians, including the Palestinian Authority (PA), seem less concerned about what will happen to the coastal enclave once Hamas is removed from power.

The PA’s Return to Gaza Is Impractical and Unwanted

The prospect of the Palestinian Authority returning to control Gaza is not practical. The Palestinian public does not support the idea and accuses the PA of corruption and acting as a subcontractor for Israel.

Palestinian Militias Are Resurgent in the Northern West Bank

The new Palestinian Authority government headed by Mohammed Mustafa says it is planning financial and administrative reforms in its institutions as part of a U.S. plan to “revitalize” the PA.

Is the Palestinian Authority Trying to Return to Gaza?

The new Palestinian Authority government, led by Prime Minister Mohammad Mustafa, is seeking support from Arab countries to gain control of the Gaza Strip. This comes amid tensions with Hamas, who are accusing the PA's intelligence service of working with Israel and other Arab countries. Mustafa's government aims to improve humanitarian aid, services, and economic stability in Gaza, but it is unlikely to succeed as long as Hamas remains in power.

The PLO-PA-Iranian Terror Alliance

The silence of the Palestinian leadership in the face of the Iranian missile attack on Israel is further proof that the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) is again aligning itself with the enemies of Israel and the West.

Recognition of a Palestinian State Will Be a Victory for Iran and a Reward for Islamist Terrorism

At a time when the Jewish State is waging a tough battle against Islamist Hamas and defending itself alone against threats of war from Iran, voices are being raised in Europe for the official recognition of a Palestinian state.

The Vision of the New Palestinian Prime Minister, Muhammad Moustafa

The new Palestinian prime minister presented the vision of a “Revitalized PA” that will be established. Still, there is no word in his vision about the war on terror, stopping the payment of salaries to terrorists, and stopping incitement in the PA’s education system and media.

The Psychology of Palestinian Distortions and Deceptions

Global opinion has moved from outrage at Hamas on October 7, 2023, to criticism of Israel just months later. How? A Palestinian strategy manipulates perception to distort and present an alternate reality.

The Parallels Between Yahya Sinwar and Yasser Arafat

Two leading figures, Yahya Sinwar and Yasser Arafat, played significant roles in attempting to challenge Israel through acts of terrorism. Despite their efforts, they ultimately failed, leading to significant repercussions for the Palestinian people.
