Shoot First, Shoot More Later

The following preview is rated X, for X marks the spot, Israeli drones:

Arab terrorists were caught on camera as they rained a potentially lethal hail of rocks on Israeli cars Thursday afternoon on Highway 60, which runs the length of Judea and Samaria.

The terrorists, who carried out their attack near the community of Ofra in the Binyamin region of Samaria, were filmed by a crew of the company IS, which provides legal and security advising.

As they captured the attack on film, the IS crew called security forces, and thanks to their actions and film evidence, the two terrorists were quickly apprehended.

It should be noted that rocks thrown at cars driving at a high speed can easily break windshields and inflict lethal damage, aside from potentially causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash.

There have been numerous lethal rock attacks, including the case of Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan who were murdered in 2011.

Recently rock terror has been on the rise, as just on Thursday, the say day the rock throwers were filmed, a family in Jerusalem made a wrong turn into the Wadi Joz neighborhood and was set upon in a planned Arab ambush that nearly took their lives.

In Jerusalem?

Really?

A family accidentally drove into the Arab neighborhood of Wadi Joz in Jerusalem on Thursday night, and nearly paid for the wrong turn in Israel’s capital city with their lives.

After entering the neighborhood, the family car was beset upon by a hail of potentially lethal rocks and massive bricks that broke the windshield, in what the mother of the family Etti Cohen described to Yedioth Aharonoth as “nearly a lynch-mob.” Fortunately the family managed to escape with only minor physical wounds.

“I feel like we got out of there by a miracle,” Cohen recalled tearfully. “I woke up this morning and the first thing that happened to me was hysterical crying, because I don’t believe that we’re at home and safe.”

“Suddenly a boy around 12-years-old came to the window of my husband, who sat on the left side. …The child started knocking on the window as we were driving,” recalled Cohen, noting suddenly there were screams in the street and three cars blocked their forward movement.

At that point, Cohen said the bricks started flying, with the first breaking through the rear windshield: “that was a shock. I didn’t believe it was happening to us. Another rock hit the window of my husband who sat behind my daughter who was driving, and broke it in. A third rock came through the broken rear windshield and hit the headrest of the friend of my son who was with us.”

Cohen’s daughter snapped out of her shock, stepping on the gas and driving onto the sidewalk to get around the stopped cars, as Cohen got the police on the phone and “simply screamed on the line. Everyone in the car screamed, there was fear.”

The police phone operator told Cohen to get off of the road because “it’s dangerous” according to Cohen, who said “I just prayed to see something Jewish; the officer who took the call told us to drive through the wadi (valley), and there after a few minutes we saw Border Patrol officers.”

“It truly ended in a miracle, the car was completely smashed up and that’s okay as long as we are safe. My daughter is suffering awful trauma. My husband is a little wounded in the face but it will pass in a day or two. I look at the kids and say ‘thank you’ that they are here with me,” said Cohen, who warned drivers not to rely on their GPS systems.

Reports on Monday revealed that in the past few months terror attacks in Jerusalem have been growing exponentially, with 152 terror attacks and incidents in July and August, a stark rise from previous months.

These Arabs have to stop acting disproportionately.

Daily Humiliation of the Palestinian People Update

I really must make this a more regular feature.

There’s so much low-hanging fruit:

Last week, Palestinian and Israeli boys met in Southern Israel to play in a football match organized by the Israeli Peres Center for Peace. The Palestinian Authority daily reprinted an article from Agence France-Presse that described the match and the initiative in a positive light. However, news of the joint sports activity with “the Zionist enemy” was not well received by PA and Fatah leaders.

Wait for it:

“Any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity.”

He demanded that “all individuals and institutions distance themselves from such activities, especially because their recurrence would arouse disgust and aversion towards all members of the [Palestinian] sports community.”

Denouncing the match as “a crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act,” member of the Palestinian Olympic Committee Abd Al-Salam Haniyeh demanded that Rajoub “immediately interrogate the organizers of the match, settle the account with them and prosecute them on charges of serious treason against the blood of the Martyrs [who died in the Gaza war] and violation of the decisions made by the Palestinian sports community’s leadership.”

Fatah branch secretary Dr. Kamal Makhamreh said that the participation in the match “was an individual act, conceived by sick souls that agreed to be humiliated for a handful of money.”

See? What have we been missing? I can’t promise a daily report, no matter how frequent their self-humiliation. But look for it more frequently. I owe you that.

Two-Fer

Some days, the sun shines on you:

Yesterday, was such a day for Jihadi John—or Head-Hacking Harry, or whatever his name is.

American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State terrorist group, took great risks to keep his Jewish faith in captivity, a former fellow-captive of the murdered journalist told Yediot Aharonoth.

However, it turns out that Sotloff was in fact Israeli.

A media gag order on the issue was released on Wednesday, allowing publication of the fact that Sotloff made aliyah (immigration) to Israel in 2005 by himself, and studied at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya.

Sotloff reportedly made sure to fast in secret during Yom Kippur and even prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as is customary in Jewish prayers, despite the risk he faced if his Islamist captors ever found out he was Jewish.

One head, two nationalities, both Satanic. I hope ISIS bought a lottery ticket that day.

One of Sotloff’s fellow captives, who was subsequently released, told the paper that he feigned illness in order to escape his captors’ suspicions.

“He told them he was ill and didn’t want to eat, even though they brought us eggs that day,” the witness told Yediot Aharonoth, “It looked like he was praying in a hidden way towards Jerusalem. He noted what way the Muslims were praying in and changed his direction slightly.”

I don’t suppose ISIS could fall lower in my esteem just by beheading an Israeli and/or American. They’ve done the same to hundreds. So, I’ll just congratulate them on a lucky, uh, stroke. We’ll get you next time.

Who Remembers Adele Biton?

We do:

After 18 months of hospitalization and operations, terror victim Adele Biton is scheduled to return to her home community of Yishuv Yakir in Shomron on Thursday, 2 Elul 5774. The joy is bittersweet amid the realization that Adele is far from returning to her hold self. Progress during the difficult rehabilitation process has been limited.

Back in 2013, then 3-year-old Adele began rehabilitation; the family realized the road ahead would be difficult and slow. Adele was released from Schneider Children’s Hospital where she was treated for life threatening injuries sustained in a car accident, the result of her mother’s vehicle being bombarded with rocks by Arabs near Ariel in Shomron. Her mom lost control of the vehicle and slammed into the rear of a truck parked on the side of the road.

Now, 4.5-years-old, Adele is being discharged from Beit Levinstein Rehabilitation Hospital. The hospital wanted to discharge her some time ago but Mrs. Biton took the case to the Supreme Court, with the latter ruling Adele should be given addition rehab time. Mrs. Biton realizes the situation is complicated as Adele is capable of limited movement and response. “She needs constant intensive therapy” she explains.

On Thursday another event connected to that attack is scheduled to take place when a military court will hold a hearing for the main suspect in the attack.

“I really wanted to take part in the hearing to make sure the court does not show leniency towards the terrorists but I will be busy bringing Adele home” explained Mrs. Biton.

A year and a half later, and Adele’s attacker will finally face justice. But is there any justice for Adele?

To Israelis, every life is sacred. A child brain-damaged by a boulder is fretted over and treasured. In Hamastan, such a child has a different role to play: human shield.

Look What the Media Discovered

Terrorist summer camps!

The little boy looks barely old enough to walk, let alone understand the dark world he’s now inhabiting.

He should be toddling around a playground with his friends. But instead, he wears a black balaclava, crouched down in a desolate street with his tiny hands clenched around an AK-47.

He pulls the trigger and the recoil of the shot knocks him back, his limbs unable to control the rifle. An adult takes the weapon from the boy’s hands as he stands up and steps away, casting a blank glance into the camera.

It’s just one of the many videos that ISIS — the Sunni terror group that has declared an independent Islamic state stretching from northern Syria to central Iraq — has produced to boast of its youngest “recruits.”

And as the radical Islamist group strengthens its hold on this huge swath of land in the heart of the Middle East, it is cramming its warped ideas into minds that are often too young to understand.

Mohammed, whose name has been changed out of fears for his safety, was one of them. He has now fled to safety in Turkey, but was just 13 when ISIS said he should attend one of their children’s camps in northern Syria.

“My friends and I were studying at the mosque, and they taught us that we should enrol in jihad with the [Islamic State],” Mohammed told CNN. “I wanted to go, but my father did not allow me to.”

When ISIS found out that Mohammed’s father had prevented him from attending, the militants sent a patrol to their house.

“[They told me] ‘if you prevent Mohammed from coming to the camp, we will cut off your head,'” his father, who declined to be named for this story, told CNN. “They were armed … and you saw the slaughter in your own yes.”

So off Mohammed went to the camp.

There’s a good little shahid.

But where have you been, CNN? Arab terrorists have been holding terrorist summer camps as long as there has been terrorism, summer, or Arabs!

Here’s one from our archives:

The Hamas government in Gaza celebrated the graduation on Monday of paramilitary camps geared at training high-school children “to follow in the footsteps of the suicide martyrs.”

“Beware this generation,” Haniyeh said, addressing Israel. “This is a generation which knows no fear. It is the generation of the missile, the tunnel and the suicide operations.”

The Hamas prime minister added that female trainers are also on staff “to oversee the training of the young women to follow in the footsteps of the female suicide operatives.”

Here’s another:

As the hot weather arrives in Gaza, children head to the town of Rafah for summer camp — not to play sports but to join war games organized by the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, the AFP news agency reports.

Youngsters wearing military fatigues and the movement’s black insignia capture a fellow camper posing as an Israeli soldier and drag him away — all
part of being trained to “resist” the enemy.

Around 100 children under the age of 16 learn from members of Islamic Jihad’s armed wing Al-Quds Brigades how to strip down an AK-47 assault rifle, crawl through tunnels and run across burning tires amid the sound of explosions on their assault course.

“When I’m older I want to fight in Al-Quds Brigades and capture Israeli troops,” said 12-year-old Ezz, who was this time playing the role of the unfortunate enemy soldier taken from his position atop a scorching sand dune.

Ezz is a pupil at a school in the Gaza Strip run by the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA.

See, CNN? Not only are these camps common as muck, and hardly secret, they’re run by the United Nations!

And learning how to hate and kill Jews is not just fun and games.

It’s serious business:

This connection between education and terrorism was demonstrates in the clearest and most shocking way possible in photos published Tuesday. The images from a year-end party at a Gaza kindergarten show young children wearing army fatigues and waving toy guns. These same youngsters also chanted anti-Israel slogans, expressing their desire to attack the Jewish state with missiles, blow up in buses, and die as martyrs.

Your shock—shock!—at terrorist training camps for Arab youth would be adorable if it weren’t so despicable. Hamass, Islamic Jihad, Fatah have been running these child abuse mills for years. Years. Sometimes with UN funding. And some parents don’t wait until school age.

I ask again, CNN: where you been? Or is it not so shocking if the targets of the genocide are of the Jewish persuasion?

Israel Guilty as Charged

Of going too easy:

Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich (Yisrael Beytenu) has called on the government to take a much firmer hand with Hamas, just hours before a ceasefire is rumored to go into effect Monday.

Aharonovich made his comments following a “difficult” visit to the Tragerman family, whose four-year-old son Daniel was killed in a mortar attack on Kibbutz Nahal Oz in southern Israel on Friday.

“With a terrorist group you need to deal in a far more violent and harsh way, to defeat it. I have said this already a number of times in the past.”

“What is important to us is to return security to the residents of the State, with an emphasis on the south,” he continued.

Hard to argue with that.

And I don’t dispute this:

Barak Seener, an Associate fellow at Britain’s Royal United Services Institute for Defense and Security Studies, thinks Israel is “choosing not to win” the war in Gaza.

“In general,” he explained, “modern warfare is not geared towards protracted conflict, and thus Israel should have initially gone in harder. This was prevented by a lack of extensive sound intelligence of tunnels and the whereabouts of Hamas operatives. Israel’s diplomatic standing will decline as Europe does not anymore understand the power of ideologies, let alone a genocidal, zero sum game Islamist and suicidal ideology.”

“There is so much that has been reported in Israeli news outlets but has not been reported in European outlets. This includes Hamas executing Fatah members, children digging tunnels, concrete being redirected to building tunnels rather than hospitals and schools, the affluence of Hamas’s leadership who divert funding to the Palestinians to their own personal accounts, even pictures of tunnels were reported by the Washington Post a few weeks earlier than Reuters.

“The main issue is that Israel should take exactly the same initiatives (not more) as Allied forces have done in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. While it is natural that Israel should seek to avoid civilian casualties, its priority is to its own civilians and soldiers.

I dispute only this: “Europe does not anymore understand the power of ideologies, let alone a genocidal, zero sum game Islamist and suicidal ideology.”

Europe understands all too well: James Foley’s executioner was British. Europeans are just praying that the Islamist threat will spare them if they ignore or submit to it. Which is how Europe deals with most threats. Israel does not have that “luxury”.

PS: If there is such a thing as a “just war”—and I believe there is—the irrevocable defeat of Hamass would have to qualify. Not a truce or a stalemate (during which Hamass would merely rearm), but an unqualified, unconditional defeat. Hamass has not amended its genocidal charter; it has not softened its warcraft. Indeed, to indiscriminate shelling of Israeli civilians they have now added human shields to their tactics. No mosque, school, or hospital is safe from their militarization. Where is the morality in leaving even a trace of such a regime? The “war crime” is in leaving it intact.

Israel’s “Partners in Peace”

Remember, in the twisted mind of the international community—including our government—Fatah are the good guys.

Eww:

Jibril Rajoub, Head of the PA Sports Authority and Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee announced that Fatah has made a “political decision” to support slaughtering Jews who live in settlements:

“OK, brother, here is the occupation, am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement? No one is stopping anyone… Our political decision is resistance in the occupied territories in order to bring an end to the occupation [using] all forms of resistance.”

The Fatah movement, headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is seen by many in the West as a peaceful alternative to Hamas for a future peace agreement. Palestinian Media Watch’s book Deception documents that the PA presents different messages to the world in English than in Arabic to its people.

Partners? Hardly:

“I’m telling everyone: Fatah has decided that our relations with the Israelis are relations between enemies. There is no kind of coordination between the Israelis and us.

On that I agree with the Deputy Secretary. They are enemies and should be treated as such—until they tender their unconditional surrender. Then and only then will it be time for “peace.” What’s been happening over the past decade (two—three—six) is just a slow bloodletting. Seen thusly, the “peace process” is just another pogrom.

President Obama Speaks Nonsense

Part MDCCLXVII:

“Netanyahu is too strong (and) in some ways Abu Mazen is too weak,” US President Barack Obama said in a comprehensive interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman Friday, commenting on the balance of power between Israel and the Palestinians.

However, President Obama also noted that the high percentage of support for Prime Minister Netanyahu among the Israeli public proves to be a weak point for him. “If he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises, including taking on the settler movement. That’s a tough thing to do.”

Of course he spoke nonsense. Look whom he was speaking with.

Somehow, Obama considers an Israeli PM—a wartime PM—popular among his own people for stating their case and pressing their cause, as weak? Maybe among those (like me) who think Netanyahu didn’t go far enough. But who else? And why the f**k is he using Mahmoud Abbas’s nom de guerre, Abu Mazen?

And what do the “settlers” (better known as population growth, young families, homesteaders) have to do with Hamass’ racist and genocidal ideology? With their myriad war crimes? What a non-sequitur! He might just have illogically blamed global warming.

The American president told Friedman in the interview that the combination of the two leaders’ strengths and weaknesses makes it difficult “to bring them together and make the kinds of bold decisions that Sadat or Begin or Rabin were willing to make.”

Let’s dismiss Rabin, shall we? Does anyone think Oslo is worth a tinker’s dam? It cost him his life, and damn near his country. As for Begin and Sadat, could either have been in a position of greater strength? Sadat was the definition of a political strongman (for a few years more, anyway), and Begin had already taken by force, the Sinai, what Sadat wanted back. Hard to see how “weakness” brought about the Camp David accord.

But Obama seems to be singing from my hymnal: namely that the so-called Palestinians are just Arabs by another (invented) name. Begin, Rabin, and Netanyahu are all Israelis, but the only thread connecting Sadat (Egyptian), Arafat (born in Cairo), and Abbas (born in Palestinian mandate, aka Israel, before it was Israel) is…what exactly? They’re Arabs, but that’s about it. Which has been my point all along: there is no distinct ethnic identity of Palestinianism, just Arabs cordoned off by colonial powers on a map.

But if Obama agrees with me, I must be wrong. Sadat was Egyptian, and Egypt is a country with a distinct history and culture. Similarly, Syria (Levant), Iraq (Mesopotamia), Iran (Persia), Lebanon (Phoenicia) have a long track record. All these countries have been largely at peace with Israel, however uneasy, for decades. Only the Arab occupiers of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza have actually acted out the ethnic hatred they all share. What makes them different, besides never, ever, ever in the history of the world having had a country? Maybe they do have a genetic difference, only the gene is not one to admire or replicate.

But mostly Obama is a fool, a dangerous fool, for not saying plainly that Israel is our ally, Israel is right and righteous in this battle, and Israel should win and impose a resolution wholly in its own interest. That should be American policy. Shame on him, on us, that it is not.

Ceasefire?

With these people?

Al-Aqsa TV, the Hamas TV channel, aired on Friday, July 25, 2014 a sermon from a Deir Al-Balah Mosque, in which an unnamed imam called for the extermination of the Jews.

“Our doctrine in fighting you (the Jews) is that we will totally exterminate you. We will not leave a single one of you alive, because you are alien usurpers of the land and eternal mercenaries. You are the mercenaries of all times. Research the history, my brothers. Wherever the Jews lived, they spread corruption. Oh Muslims, didn’t you notice that Allah said: ‘They spread in THE land…’ The definite article in ‘THE land’ means the entire land. ‘They spread in the land corruption, and Allah loves not the corrupters.'”

That was on Hamass TV, mind you.

Just some hothead blowing off steam? Then how about this guy?

Palestinian Media Watch reported on Thursday that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas had publicly declared the current conflict with Israel a religious “war for Allah.” On Friday, the independent Palestinian news service Ma’an printed an opinion piece that likewise interpreted the last lines of Abbas’ speech as a call to West Bank Palestinians to initiate violence:

“He gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose. Isn’t the Quranic verse he quoted during his last speech, ‘Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory’ [Surah 22:39, trans. Sahih International] a clear sign to loosen the reins of the street?”
[Op-ed by Muhannad Ubeid, Ma'an (independent Palestinian news agency),
July 25, 2014]

Violence began immediately following Abbas’ speech and peaked on Saturday, as reported in the Jerusalem Post: “Nine Palestinians were killed during clashes with the IDF and Border Police over the weekend, in one of the deadliest days in the West Bank in the last 10 years.” [July 27, 2014]

So, the bad Arabs (“Palestinian” being a mythical beast) call for the complete extermination of the Jews, while the so-called good Arabs enflame passions by calling this a holy war for the Big A. And Israel is supposed to submit to the demands—of the bad Arabs.

And that’s American policy?

This is a joke, right? Where’s the hidden camera?

US Sets Israel Up For “Relation Meltdown”

People should contact their representatives to complain about this.

After being caught on a hot mic July 20 saying, “It’s crazy to just be sitting around,” Kerry finally departed for Egypt. He spent most of the week in his hotel in Cairo, holding meetings and making dozens of phone calls, traveling to Israel and the West Bank for a few hours only July 23.

When Kerry sent the Israel government his draft ceasefire proposal July 25, the Israeli cabinet rejected it unanimously and senior Israeli officials leaked several angry and nasty criticisms of Kerry to the Israeli press. Kerry’s meeting with the Turkish and Qatari foreign ministers in Paris on July 26 evoked another round of leaked quotes about Israel’s frustration with Kerry’s effort. [They fail to mention that Egypt is also upset with Kerry. - Aggie]

Of course, the Benjamin Netanyahu government in Israel was wary of Kerry’s efforts. Israel has been resisting Kerry’s criticism that their operations should focus more on avoiding civilian casualties and has groused [Note the use of the verb: to grouse. Is that serious? Does that imply the fear that your communities will be overrun with Hamas terrorists coming through tunnels, Hamas shells landing randomly on homes, schools, roads? No, it does not. They are intentionally downplaying Israel's extremely valid concerns. Why? Because they are journalists, trying to control the mood of the American public and to turn it against Israel. - Aggie] that Kerry’s proposal would reward Hamas for launching barrages of rockets into Israel. Israeli officials have also disparaged Kerry in public and private ever since Kerry’s last Middle East peace push collapsed in April. [They are "disparaging" him because he is a weasel. We in Massachusetts can attest to that.- Aggie]

But anonymous Israeli officials were not the only ones grousing about Kerry’s diplomacy. Asharq al-Aswat, an Arab newspaper based in London, quoted a senior Palestinian Authority official over the weekend saying Kerry’s plan was an attempt to destroy the Egyptian ceasefire proposal. [Yes, because it hands a win over to Hamas and makes the entire region less safe. - Aggie]

State Department officials have claimed all week that an immediate ceasefire leading to a negotiation for a more permanent agreement between Israel and Hamas was the only way forward. Meanwhile, the death toll mounts on both sides, with the Palestinians bearing the brunt of the tragedy; 48 IDF soldiers and over 1,000 Palestinians have now been killed. [Mostly fighters, males between the ages of 18-50 = roughly 75% of deaths. - Aggie] The Israelis have effectively cut off nearly 40% of the Gaza Strip. Some of Gaza’s most densely populated neighborhoods have been flattened in what many say amounts to collective punishment of the Palestinians by the Israeli government.

But the Israeli government has made clear publicly and privately it would not agree to a ceasefire until its ongoing mission to destroy Hamas’s network of tunnels was complete.

No sane person wants to do what Kerry and Obama are demanding. They want Israel to stop fighting, even though the rockets continue and the tunnels are still in place. This is the best advertisement for the Republican Party that I can imagine.

Top Obama administration officials Monday were still pressing for a ceasefire based on Kerry’s draft proposal, revealed first by the Israeli newspaper Ha’Aretz and then by The New York Times Monday. The Israeli cabinet rejected it unanimously last week. Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken told CNN on Monday that because the Israelis had “significantly further degraded” Hamas’ tunnels, the Kerry plan was still the best way forward.

Blinken also insisted that Kerry’s plan contained many of the “same elements” as an Egyptian proposal, released July 15 and immediately rejected by Hamas. Cairo’s plan called for an immediate halt to violence on both sides and would have provided for the opening of border crossings and the end of rocket fire into Israel.

But the two plans also had key differences. Multiple Israeli officials, lawmakers, and experts told The Daily Beast that Kerry’s proposal altered the Egyptian ceasefire in many important ways, and in one case altered longstanding U.S. policy toward the funding of Hamas.

Two Israeli government officials told The Daily Beast that Israel could not agree to the Kerry draft proposal because it felt it would constrain the Israeli Defense Forces from finishing their mission to destroy the tunnels in Gaza. Yet Kerry’s proposal explicitly did not include a call for the IDF to withdraw from Gaza during the ceasefire. What’s more, U.S. officials told the Israeli government that tunnel work would be able to continue during the ceasefire, as it had during the previous short-term pauses in the fighting.

The Israeli government was not confident the IDF would be able to continue tunnel destruction inside Gaza during the ceasefire. The officials in Jerusalem were not willing to commit to any timeline for completing the tunnel mission because they were still discovering the extent of the tunnel network and thought the mission could take as long as three weeks to complete.

“The Israelis felt their security concerns weren’t addressed by Kerry’s proposal,” said Dennis Ross, a former White House senior official and longtime Mideast envoy. “The ceasefire was going to put the Israelis in a position where the tunnels were still there. A ceasefire that doesn’t address that is not one that the Israelis could accept.”

I will assume that Obama and Kerry are not stupid. By penning a “peace plan” that hands a victory to Hamas, one they knew that Israel would reject – and the entire society has rejected it, Left, Right and Center – they were setting Israel up for scapegoating. Now they are righteously indignant. How DARE Israel be so rude!!!

And notice that our tax dollars, which already fund terrorist organizations, are set to increase funding to Hamas:

The Kerry proposal also stated a commitment would be made to “transfer funds to Gaza for the payment of salaries of public employees.” Israeli and U.S. officials said the understanding was that money would be given to Hamas by the government of Qatar. A senior U.S. official said that the American government doesn’t like Qatar providing money to Hamas, which is still officially designated as a terrorist organization by the State Department. But Kerry was trying to reach Hamas and he believes this was the best way to influence them.

“The fact is, [the Qataris] are [funding Hamas] and as a result of that they have some influence,” the senior U.S. official said.

Cute. The more vicious the terror group, the more likely they are to get funded. Dig tunnels, fire rockets, receive a bonanza!! Don’t try this trick at home, kids.

Antisemitic Britain

Europe just can’t get enough Jew hating.

One picture is worth a thousand words:

Britain is as Britain does

Britain is as Britain does

Jewish people in Britain are enduring a backlash of attacks, bomb threats and anti-semitic insults fuelled by the bloodshed in Gaza.
More than 100 hate crimes have been recorded by police and community groups this month, more than double the usual number.
Community safety groups fear the total could be the second highest ever recorded, after an explosion of violence during the 2009 Gaza war.
In several disturbing cases attackers have invoked the Holocaust and even shouted: ‘Heil Hitler’ at victims.
A rabbi was attacked by four Muslim teenagers outside a Jewish boarding school in Gateshead in one of the most serious incidents.
In Belfast, bricks were thrown at the city’s only synagogue, smashing windows on two consecutive nights.
Groups of Asian men chanted ‘Heil Hitler’ as they drove through a Jewish area of Manchester, throwing missiles at passers-by.
In north London, one pro-Israel organisation received a telephone bomb threat and a Jewish boy riding a bicycle had a stone thrown at his head by a woman in a niqab.Jewish people in Britain are enduring a backlash of attacks, bomb threats and anti-semitic insults fuelled by the bloodshed in Gaza.

British Government building flies NaziPalestinian flag.

This is Britain

This is Britain

A local government authority in the United Kingdom has openly worked with a pro-Hamas group which masquerades as a charity, Breitbart London can exclusively reveal.
Preston City Council, which is run by the Labour Party, was forced to change its plans to fly the Palestinian flag over the town hall following protests and complaints. Breitbart London can now reveal that the group the council was working with has previously hosted meetings in which they express open and vocal support for the terrorist group Hamas.
Council leader Peter Rankin said: “I am pleased to be able to demonstrate our sympathy with the Palestinians through raising their flag over the town hall. We are also exploring other ways in which we can help and support Gaza.”
But the initial plans had to be altered following complaints. Instead the Palestinian flag flew for just four minutes before being replaced. The flag is then reported to have been auctioned off, raising around £1,500 and perhaps therefore making the council complicit in fundraising with a pro-Hamas organisation.

So there are some sane people in Britain who were able to stop it, but they are few and far between.

Hey, Brits! If you want a safe place for your art collections, try NYC. More convenient for us to see it there anyway.

My Way of Thinking

This guy says pretty much what I’ve been thinking:

Following are excerpts from an interview with Abd Al-Bari Atwan, former editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi, which aired on Mayadeen TV on July 14, 2014:

Abd Al-Bari Atwan: The vast majority of the countries participating in [the Arab League] summit consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization. These countries pray – all those foreign ministers are praying – that Israel will manage to get rid of Hamas once and for all. They support the Israeli planes bombing the Gaza Strip under the pretext of getting rid of Hamas and stopping the missiles.

Yizhak Rabin once said that he hoped to wake up one day and see Gaza had sunk into the sea. By God, the Arab regimes and leaders have outdone Rabin in this. They would like the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and the entire Palestinian people to sink into the sea with no survivors.

But this guy has a more constructive approach:

Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel. The coastal train line will be extended, as soon as possible, to reach the entire length of Gaza.

According to polls, most of the Arabs in Gaza wish to leave. Those who were not involved in anti-Israel activity will be offered a generous international emigration package. Those who choose to remain will receive permanent resident status. After a number of years of living in Israel and becoming accustomed to it, contingent on appropriate legislation in the Knesset and the authorization of the Minister of Interior, those who personally accept upon themselves Israel’s rule, substance and way of life of the Jewish State in its Land, will be offered Israeli citizenship.

That’s Moshe Feiglin, a pretty whacked-out sort. Why, he’s even been know to stroll up to the Temple Mount and pray to God from time to time. Just to put him into perspective.

But he’s right, of course. Israel thought it could live with the Arabs in Gaza, allowing and encouraging settlement—then pulled the rug out from under it’s Jewish citizens, evacuating them without choice, leaving the whole pestilent Strip judenrein. That was nine years ago, long enough to judge the results. Time, I think, to render Gaza jihad-rein, once and for all.
