What Did You Learn in School Today?

Don’t get upset, Aggie. They promise an investigation:

The UN secretary-general on Wednesday said he was “alarmed” to hear that rockets were placed in a UN-run school in Gaza and now “have gone missing,” and he demanded a full review of such incidents.

A statement by the spokesman for Ban Ki-moon expressed the UN chief’s “outrage and regret” at the placement of weapons at a site run by the global organization. The UN says that has happened at least twice so far in the current fighting.

“Those responsible are turning schools into potential military targets, and endangering the lives of innocent children,” UN staff and anyone seeking shelter, the statement said.

That’s pretty funny. “Endangering the lives of innocent children” is Hamass policy. Just as aiding and abetting them is UN policy.

But fear not:

“The United Nations is taking concerted action to increase its vigilance in preventing such episodes from happening again,” the statement said.

The statement also demanded that militant groups stop such actions and be held accountable for endangering civilians.

That’s telling ‘em.

Move Over, Grannies

I siad below that Arab terrorists in Gaza are shooting from behind the skirts of grannies.

I wish to apologize here and now to any grannies who may have been offended:

Wounded soldiers have given shocking testimony regarding Hamas’ use of young children as human shields.

Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops.

One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire. If soldiers fired, the parent added, the child’s death could be used as propaganda against Israel.

“They’re continuing the same trick of using children as human shields, just as they did in Operation Cast Lead,” one father said. Women are used as human shields as well, he added.

Those like John Kerry and and Ban-ki Moon (and our president) who condemn Israel for war crimes, do so knowing full well the truth of the matter. But they want to hang at the Kool Kidz table.

Arab EMTs

When the going gets tough, the terrorists scatter like so many cockroaches:

But as pathetically humorous as it is to watch the little Arab rats scurry and hide, it’s nowhere near as pathetically humorous as watching the little Arab rats play-acting:

Hee-hee. Pallywood really ought to sell tickets for these comic shorts. They’re blockbuster.

There are a few among the dead whose deaths I’m sure I regret. A few. But if Hamass fires off missiles and mortars from behind the skirts of Arab grannies, Israel not only can fire back, it must. Chalk up all deaths to Hamass.

Bad News for Those Who “Love Death More Than You Love Life”

You’ll just have to wait a little longer to get your wish:

The IDF will create a field hospital outside Gaza in order to treat injured Palestinians, army sources announced Sunday. Chief of Staff Benny Gantz has approved the measure.

The hospital will be located near the Erez crossing in northern Gaza, near the site of recent heavy battles. It is expected to be active by 8 p.m. Sunday.

It will be available to treat ill as well as injured patients, and will include a delivery room.

On Sunday morning, a soldier reported that he and other IDF medical staff had saved the life of a Gaza terrorist. Soldier Daniel Albo told Yediot Aharonot, “My team and I saved the life of a terrorist who tried to kill us because we are IDF soldiers and citizens of Israel. We saved him because we are human.”

Show off.

Not all Israelis are so insufferable, thank goodness:

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh may be a persona non grata for the Israeli government – but three of his sisters are living as full Israeli citizens.

The Telegraph reports Sunday that Haniyeh’s sisters, Kholidia, Laila and Sabah, married Bedouin and became full citizens 30 years ago.

The three now hide in the anonymity of the Israeli desert, according to the daily. While two are widows, and live alone, none are apparently willing to move back to Gaza and relinquish their Israeli citizenship.

No [bleep]. They may be Haniyehs, but they ain’t crazy.

It’s not safe to be related to a Hamass terrorist:

Over 30 IDF soldiers have reportedly been injured in Sheijaya, Walla! News reports Sunday, after the IDF carried out heavy shelling in the city east of Gaza City.

Among the dead are the family members of senior Hamas leader Khalil al-Haya, according to multiple sources, after their house was shelled in Gaza City itself.

Anonymity in the desert sounds pretty good now, doesn’t it?

Now, This is Smart Power

Ethnically engineered rockets: who says the Arabs haven’t invented anything since the lute?

Following are excerpts from an interview with Hamas Spokesman Fawzi Barhoum, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on July 11, 2014:

Fawzi Barhoum: We say to [Israeli Arabs], living in Haifa, Jaffa, Acre, Lod, Ramla, and the Negev: The rockets fired by the Al-Qassam Brigades will not hit you. We know those parts. We are familiar with the geography and with the history. Not a single Arab Palestinian child will be hit by one of our missiles. Our rockets are aimed at the Hebrews, the murderers, the Israelis, the criminals. Don’t be afraid. Go on with your everyday life, and celebrate our victory, just like we will celebrate it here, in Gaza.

Why isn’t he celebrating?

“A few minutes ago, a pointless rocket fired by the resistance, as it calls itself, fell inside the city of Hebron. What do you think about the Hamas spokesman’s comments from yesterday, that the resistance knows the geography and therefore knows how to avoid having rockets hit Arabs?”

It should have been a clue when he said to celebrate everyday life just like they do in Gaza.

You have yourselves a great day, Arabs!

Ahmed, Did You Bring Enough Missiles For Everyone?

Israel’s moved into Gaza to root out the rats therein, and not before time.

But they might look in more than the usual places:

The UN agency for Palestinian Arab “refugees,” the UNRWA, said Thursday it was investigating after finding 20 rockets hidden in one of its vacant schools in Gaza, AFP reports.

It condemned the incident as a “flagrant violation” of international law and said the rockets had been removed and the “relevant parties” informed.

“Yesterday, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered approximately 20 rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the agency said in a statement.

“UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations,” it continued. “This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.”

Then why don’t you call an international policeman to throw the culprits in international jail? And why shouldn’t Hamass terrorists hide missiles in UN schools? They hide them in mosques. They fire them from playgrounds and senior centers. If I could find you a litter of newborn kittens in Gaza, I promise you there would be a battery of mortars right next to the purring little fuzz balls.

A helpful reminder of what UNRWA is:

UNRWA began activities in 1950 to provide aid to the roughly 700,000 Arabs who left Israel during the War of Independence, as an entirely separate entity from the UN’s main refugee agency, the UNHCR. No UN organization was established to aid the nearly 1 million Jewish refugees who fled or were expelled from Arab countries following 1948.

Uniquely, “Palestinian refugee” status is “inherited” by the descendants of the original refugees, meaning that today the number of “Palestinian refugees” numbers 5 million in total. Instead of resettling them and helping them to rebuild their lives, however, UNRWA operates an extensive network of “refugee camps” in which residents are encouraged not to integrate into their host countries.

Documentary research has revealed how UNRWA children’s camps radicalize participants, with chants of: “with G-d’s help and our own strength we will wage war. And with education and jihad we will return!” At one point, a camp instructor branded Jews as “wolves,” the study showed.

Good luck and God bless, Israel. You have your work cut out for you.

Humanitarian Cease-Fire Appears to Hold in Gaza

A tentative humanitarian cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza appeared to be holding on Thursday, even as it was interrupted by a brief flurry of mortar fire shortly after it took effect.

They do clarify, God bless ‘em:

Two hours into the lull, which began at 10 a.m. local time, sirens wailed in southern Israel and three mortar shells fell in open ground on the Israeli side of the border, military officials said. Israel had threatened to respond with force if militants in Gaza took the opportunity of the temporary cease-fire to fire on Israel, but half an hour after the mortar attack there had been no Israeli military response.

So a ceasefire is a ceasefire, even if Hamass shells Jews, but not if the Jews respond in self defense.

I know, we already knew that.

Doing Well By Doing Bad

I’ve finally found the one person who benefited from the jihadist entity known as Gaza:

[W]hile most of the Gaza population tries to deal with the difficulties of daily life, it seems that one sector at least has had few worries about their livelihoods – Hamas leaders and their associates.

Someone who has benefitted financially is the former Hamas prime minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh. Before 2006 and Hamas’ shocking electoral win and subsequent dominance of the Palestinian government, 51-year-old Haniyeh was not considered a senior figure in Hamas in the Gaza Strip. But according to reports in the past few years, Haniyeh’s new-found senior status has allowed him to become a millionaire. This is an unusual feat, given that he was born to a refugee family in the al-Shati refugee camp in northern Gaza.

In 2010, Egyptian magazine Rose al-Yusuf reported that Haniyeh paid for $4 million for a 2,500msq parcel of land area in Rimal, a tony beachfront neighborhood of Gaza City. To avoid embarrassment, the land was registered in the name of the husband of Haniyeh’s daughter. Since then, there have been reports that Haniyeh has purchased several homes in the Gaza Strip, registered in the names of his children – no hardship, as he has 13 of them.

At least with regards to his eldest son, it seems that the apple does not fall far from the tree, given his arrest on the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing with millions of dollars in cash in possession, which he intended to take into Gaza.

According to sources in Gaza, Haniyeh’s wealth, like others high up in Hamas, came primarily from the flourishing tunnel industry. Senior Hamas figures, Haniyeh included, would levy 20 percent taxation on all of the trade passing through the tunnels.

No wonder they want a ten-year truce: business has been good. For the rest of Hamastan, however, not so much:

Do I have to pay Haniyeh a fee for using that image of a tunnel? Sue me, fatso.

PS: The more one learns about the invented species palestinias, one comes to realize that their support among the Left has nothing at all to do with themselves, but everything to do with their sworn enemies: Jews. Hamas and the Left share that.

Can Hamass Have Our Cake and Eat it Too?

The answer is getting closer to no:

The US Congress is targeting the Palestine Authority (PA) with a cutoff of funds unless US President Barack Obama can justify how continued support to Ramallah advances national security needs.

Moves by both houses of Congress to terminate two decades of economic and security assistance come in response to the June 2 establishment of a new Fatah-led consensus government backed by Hamas, a US-declared terrorist organization.

The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday approved a 2015 foreign operations bill that bars aid to the PA from some $440 million in proposed funding.

The Senate’s version of its 2015 foreign operations bill, which includes similar language barring funding to the PA, was approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee on June 19.

Unlike previous years, when the House banned funding for a government over which Hamas “exercises undue influence,” this year’s language targets any type of power-sharing government “that results from an agreement with Hamas.”

Both Houses saw fit to include language that limits Obama’s ability to ignore the law, as is his wont.

Alas, they missed this chance:

A much more restrictive bill, introduced in April by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., failed to attract sufficient support by Senate colleagues.

Labeled the “Stand With Israel Act,” the bill aimed to rescind the president’s right to waive funding for any type of Palestinian unity government.

The text:

“Prohibition on Foreign Assistance.

(a) In General. Except as provided under subsection (b) and notwithstanding any other provision of law, no amounts may be obligated or expended to provide any direct United States assistance, loan guarantee, or debt relief to the Palestinian Authority, or any affiliated governing entity or leadership organization.

(b) Exception. The prohibition under subsection (a) shall have no effect for a fiscal year if the President certifies to Congress during that fiscal year that the Palestinian Authority has –

(1) Formally recognized the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state;
(2) Publicly recognized the state of Israel;
(3) Renounced terrorism;
(4) Purged all individuals with terrorist ties from security services;
(4) Terminated funding of anti-American and anti-Israel incitement;
(5) Publicly pledged to not engage in war with Israel; and
(6) Honored previous diplomatic agreements.”

Israel-boosters look upon Rand Paul with some suspicion, given the foreign policy of his father. But given the length he has gone to in order to keep President Barack Hussein Obama from funding Arab terrorists, it would appear we’re focusing on the wrong politician.

“Disproportionate” Response Update

Hamass launches 15 missiles at Israel, the headlines scream.

How does Israel answer the provocation?

Israel has dropped hundreds of anti-Hamas lollipops in two of the West Bank’s largest cities, in a renewed attempt to incite Palestinian popular opinion against the Islamist political group.

Palestinian residents of Nablus and Ramallah noticed on Sunday morning that hundreds of lollipops had been dropped in the streets and alleyways of the city, decorated with the phrase “Ramadan Kareem … Some sweets, after Hamas has made life in the West Bank bitter.”

Witnesses in Nablus told Ma’an that they saw Israeli soldiers throwing the lollipops in the streets.

The UN will surely vote overwhelmingly to condemn this act of collective punishment.

PS: If the situation were reversed, the lollipops distributed by Hamass would be laced with rat poison.

The “Government” of “Palestine”

Translation: Arab terrorists (as if that would ever change).

Hamas Deputy Leader Moussa Abu-Marzouk revealed that despite the talk of a Fatah-Hamas unity government, Hamas remains firmly in charge of Gaza, and is giving the terrorists raining rockets on Israel a free hand.

Abu-Marzouk announced that the terrorists launching rockets, which on Saturday night directly hit a factory in Sderot burning it down, are not being stopped or arrested by Hamas.

While the IDF notes that Gaza terrorists have fired over 30 rockets at southern Israel since the kidnapping of three teens by Hamas terrorists on June 12, Abu-Marzouk clarified that not a single arrest has been conducted against the perpetrators of the recent attacks.

The unity government reportedly has responsibility for managing Gaza, although unity government Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah has admitted that his government is completely powerless in Gaza.

As mentioned in the post below, it is US policy to recognize the government of the Arab entity, including Hamass. The Obama regime recognizes a terrorist organization as a legitimate partner. From we “will always have Israel’s back” to “hand us that Heinkel boning knife sticking out your back, will you Izzy?”

Just because Hamass isn’t going after the terrorists, doesn’t mean no one is:

[T]he IAF for its part took out two of the perpetrators in an airstrike on Friday, targeting a car in Gaza. CCTV video footage from Gaza apparently captured the targeted airstrike on film.

I take no joy (well, little joy) in the death of others, but I do have to marvel how wicked awesome such a strike—such a contained strike—is. Passersby within feet of the explosion were not harmed, while those terrorists in the car were vaporized. It’s like watching a David Blaine trick: how do they do that?

Lie Down With Arab Dogs, Get Up With Palestinian Fleas

Or the other way around, I don’t care.

But if you think that’s an offensive thing to say, I’m not the one saying it:

If it indeed turns out that Hamas was behind the kidnappings of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Gilad Sha’ar, Fatah will regard its unity agreement with Hamas as null and void, a top Palestinian Authority official said Monday. Fatah will consider the kidnappings as “a stab in the back” of the deal, and will no longer consider itself obligated to honor the agreement.

According to the official, Hamas had promised not to carry out terror attacks in Judea and Samaria, as part of the agreement. With the kidnappings, Hamas has clearly violated that promise. The official added that after the incident is over, Fatah will act against “Hamas assets.”

So, Fatah condemns the kidnappings, huh? Then how do they explain this?

Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement continues to glorify and celebrate the kidnapping of three Israeli youths last week, with postings on its official Facebook page.

And this?

In an odious distortion of the World Cup 2014 logo, the official Palestinian Authority daily printed today a cartoon celebrating the kidnapping of three Israeli youths last Thursday night, June 12, 2014.

And this?

PA supports “kidnap-for-hostage” strategy

Abbas in 2011:
“Hamas kidnapped a soldier (Gilad Shalit) and managed to keep him for five years – that’s a good thing.” [Official PA TV, Oct. 24, 2011]

Rajoub representing Abbas in 2011:
“We salute those who dug the tunnel [to kidnap Gilad Shalit]; we salute those
who captured the captive (Gilad Shalit), and salute those who guarded the captive until this deal was completed.”
[Official PA TV, Oct. 30, 2011]

Rajoub in 2014:
“If Hamas wants to kidnap soldiers…we encourage them. When they kidnapped Shalit we congratulated them.”
[Official PA TV, Jan. 2, 2014]

Israel told the Arabs and they told us that if Hamass was part of any Arab “unity” government, all bets were off. Tish-tosh, said John Kerry. Piffle. Hamass isn’t that much worse than the bog-standard Arab terrorism movement.

I’ll be damned if he didn’t get that one right.

PS: Fatah’s words may ring hollow, but at least they ring. The EU has been at a loss for words:

Five days after three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped, the European Union officially on Tuesday released a statement condemning the event and calling for the teens’ speedy return. The statement followed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s implicit criticism of the union for rushing to condemn what it considers Israeli violations while delaying its denunciations of Palestinian terrorism.
