Daily Humiliation of the Palestinian People™ Daily Update

These updates are like orange juice: breakfast without them is like a day without sunshine.

Fatah activists say troops from the rival Palestinian movement Hamas broke up a Fatah gathering in the Gaza Strip, beating participants.

It was the most violent clash in months between Fatah and the Islamic militant Hamas, which seized Gaza from Fatah’s leader, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, in 2007.

The incident signaled continued hostility between Hamas and Fatah despite reconciliation attempts. It also suggested Hamas is on edge as it struggles to survive an Egyptian border closure.

“A group of Fatah supporters organized an activity in Khan Younis without contacting police for approval, and that is a breach of the law and obvious attempt to bring security chaos back,” said Hamas official al-Bozoum.

Al-Bozoum further highlighted that Fatah supporters had “attacked police officers who arrived to enforce the law,” Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported,

Fatah spokesman Hassan Ahmed says Hamas security beat and briefly detained participants “for no reason” during the ceremony, which was held to commemorate “martyrs who fell during the Intifada.”

To be fair to Hamass, it’s hard to tell with these people between solemn ceremonies and deranged riots. BTW, I think Al Bozoum would make a great porn name.

The groups have made multiple failed attempts at reconciliation for years, Ma’an reported, most recently in 2012, when they signed two yet-unimplemented agreements in Cairo and Doha.

I started a drinking game based on taking a shot every time Fatah and Hamass held “unity” talks. I’ve lost my family, my job, my house, and currently live in a van down by the river.

Why Does Egypt Hate These Guys?

They know how to live…in a manner of speaking:

An explosion Saturday in the southern Gaza Strip killed at least one terrorist and wounded nine more, medical sources said.

“The explosion occurred during a training session in bomb-making,” said a statement from the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamist Hamas movement that controls Gaza.

Source have identified the dead man as Ibrahim al-Ghoul, a local Hamas commander.

His name cannot seriously be al-Ghoul. Ghoul by name, ghoul by nature, I guess.

In what may be a related story:

Two people listed as being on a missing Malaysia Airlines jet weren’t on the flight, and their passports had been stolen in Thailand, authorities and family members said Saturday.

The search for the plane, which disappeared on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, centered on waters off Vietnam after Hanoi said it had spotted what appeared to be large oil slicks.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 people aboard, lost contact with the airline shortly into the flight early Saturday. Government and airline officials said they weren’t ready to speculate about what caused the Boeing 777-200 to disappear from radar sometime after it flew away from peninsular Malaysia’s east coast. Aviation analysts noted that accidents at cruising altitude over water were rare.

All dead, presumably. By the hand of terrorists, also presumably.

Daily Humiliation of the Palestinian People™ Daily Update

Who does an activist have to [bleep] to get into Gaza? [You sure about "into"? Not "the hell out of"?]

A number of French activists left Cairo International Airport to other world capitals after Egyptian authorities denied on Thursday their entry to Gaza through the Rafah crossing.

The activists protested the authorities’ decision not to allow them entrance by lying on the floor in the airport imitating dead bodies while draping Palestinian flags on their bodies.

Imitating dead bodies? Teases.

A source at the Cairo airport said the French consul to Cairo apologized for the lack of cooperation by activists with the airport authorities.

How much of an a-hole are you if your consul has to apologize to Egyptian authorities for your behavior? They shoot Sudanese undocumented workers seeking refuge in Israel in the back over there.

Here’s a two-fer:

Egyptian security services have started to collect information about thousands of Hamas members who were granted Egyptian citizenship during the rule of ousted president Mohamed Mursi, according to Egyptian media.

Egypt’s Day Seven news website reported that Egyptian authorities plan revoke the citizenship of 13,757 Hamas members for being “affiliated to an offshoot of the terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Egyptian authorities are investigating whether Hamas members have been involved in what they describe as “terrorist attacks,” adding that the prime minister has the right to revoke the citizenship of Hamas members without a court ruling if it is deemed that they endanger public security.

On Tuesday, an Egyptian court banned the activities of Hamas and ordered its assets seized.

Egypt won’t let people into Gaza or out of Gaza. That sounds like a siege to me. Good for them.

Daily Humiliation of the Palestinian People™ Daily Update

Another day, another humiliation:

Egypt on Wednesday detained and deported Northern Irish Nobel Laureate and anti-Israel activist Mairead Maguire and held up others who had been planning to go to neighboring Gaza, AFP reported.

Maguire had intended to join a delegation of women activists going to Gaza, activists and officials told the news agency. On Tuesday, airport police had already detained and deported American activist Medea Benjamin, also part of the delegation, who told AFP police broke her arm.

Come on, Medea, you’ve had that and worse coming for a long, long time.

But why would the lovely Irish colleen want to go to that armpit, Gaza?

This is not the first time she has tried to enter Gaza and failed. In 2010, Maguire took part in the flotilla that aimed to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.

Following the flotilla, Maguire was expelled from Israel for 10 years. She appealed the decision to the Supreme Court, but the appeal was rejected. She was subsequently deported from Israel.

Egypt controls the only border crossing with Gaza that bypasses Israel, and is accused of colluding with the Jewish state to blockade the territory ruled by the Hamas terrorist group.

“I think it’s sad, what they’ve done,” Maguire told AFP of the reception she and the other activists received in Egypt.

“It is an example and confirmation of the Egyptian government’s compliance with the blockade of Gaza,” she charged.

She’s sad that Egypt is being mean to Hamass: yet another Jew-hater awarded with a Nobel Peace Prize. When’s Farrakhan’s turn?

These antisemites give Leftism—and peace—a bad name.

Boy, if Egypt keeps carrying on this way, how long will Obama be able to protect them from “international fallout”?

A Cairo court has banned all activities by Hamas in Egypt, calling the Palestinian movement that runs Gaza a terrorist organization.

Hamas member Izzat Rashq denounced Tuesday’s ruling by the Cairo circuit court as a “political decision aimed to undermine the Palestinian people and their valiant resistance.”

The nation’s military government has been cracking down on Islamist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsy, along with other members of the group, face prison-break charges stemming from a January 2011 uprising that toppled longtime strongman Hosni Mubarak.

Obama said this to Israel the other day:

“If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction — and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time — if Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguous sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited.”

You’ve been warned, Egyptian Arabs. Don’t mess with Gaza Arabs while Obama’s sheriff.

BTW, does Obama understand the word contiguous? How does he envision a “contiguous sovereign Palestinian state” (four lies in four words) between Arab occupied Judea and Samaria and Arab occupied Gaza? They’re adept tunnelers, the Gazans are, but Ramallah’s a long way from Rafah. More Obama ignorance.

Welcome to Our World, NATO

You can have it:

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestion that NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state is not well-received by his rivals, the Hamas rulers of Gaza.

A spokesman for Hamas said Friday that the faction would regard any international military presence within a future Palestinian state as “occupation” forces, reported the Ma’an news agency.

During a rally in southern Gaza, spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that any international forces stationed in “Palestine” as a result of a peace agreement with Israel would be treated the same as “the Israeli occupation.”

Abu Zuhri called on Abbas to withdraw from negotiations with the United States and Israel, saying the talks only served to “terminate the question of Palestine and what is left of Palestinian rights and principles.”

“Nobody has authorized you (Abbas) to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people, or on behalf of Hamas or any other faction,” he said, according to Ma’an.

He’s got a point: when did the Arab occupiers of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza last hold an election? (When they did in Gaza, Hamass won.) Abbas is almost nine years into a four-year term: I’d say he’s about as unauthorized to speak as anyone could be.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said last week that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opposes the idea that NATO forces will secure Israel’s borders in the event of a withdrawal from Judea and Samaria.

Precisely, Bibi. Look how well UN “peacekeepers” have worked in Lebanon. No, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. When the missiles start falling, you’re a lot more motivated to stand and fight if it’s your own family and people you’re protecting.

Yeah, Sure, Okay, Whatever

Let us know how it turns out:

A senior Fatah delegation arrived in the Gaza Strip over the weekend amid renewed talk of possible reconciliation with Hamas.

The delegation consisted of Fatah Central Committee members Nabil Sha’ath, Jamal Muhaissen, Mohamed al Madani and Sakher Bsaisso.

Hey, I hope they do reconcile. I’m just skeptical, that’s all. Can’t say we haven’t been here before.

I hope they reconcile because the only difference between the pious Jew-haters of Hamass and the corrupt Jew-haters of Fatah is in the venality.

Hamass is proud and defiant of its Jew hatred, Fatah slightly more camouflaged. I’d like to see John Kerry try to force Israeli concessions to an unholy alliance of Hamass and Fatah. Of course, I wouldn’t, but even he might not have the ego and arrogance to try.

Hamass: TNG

Barack Obama showed America that anyone can be president. A dope-smoking, parking-ticket-avoiding, biracial state senator from flyover country applied his unique talents to ascend to the highest office in the land, hence the world.

In Hamasstan, any boy can grow up to die:

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.”

The camps, titled “the pioneers of liberation,” are run by Hamas’s ministries of education and interior. Some 13,000 students in grades 10-12 participated in the one-week training camps this year, compared to 5,000 last year when the program was launched, Israeli sources with knowledge of the program said.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, Interior Minister Fathi Hammad and Education Minister Usama Mzeini attended the graduation ceremony on Monday, each delivering fiery speeches stressing the importance of military training in developing a new generation of Palestinian combatants.

“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.”

Too bad, I guess, but it’s their funeral. But at least they’ll have company!

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.”

Give them land! Give them land!

PS: If they get this right, maybe they’ll be the last generation.

Killer Bee

Hamas-TV’s Nahoul the bee, who took over from Farfour the talking anus, tells the boys and girls of Gaza how he feels about “peace” “negotiations” with Jews:

Untitled

Following are excerpts from the episode of the show, “Pioneers of Tomorrow,” which aired on November 29, 2013.

Interviewer: Nahoul, today I’d like to teach you the word “negotiations.”

Nahoul: What?

Interviewer: Negotiations.

Nahoul: Mmm, great – how delicious.

Interviewer: You can’t eat it.

Nahoul: Yes… I mean… What is it?

Interviewer: Negotiations is a world that children hear, but they don’t know what it means.

Nahoul: Okay, go ahead and tell us.

Interviewer: Negotiations means that we and the Zionists will become friends…

Nahoul: Huh?

Interviewer: It means that we should forgive them for the blood of all the martyrs…

Nahoul: Never!

Interviewer: We will get half of Jerusalem and they will get the other half – that’s if they agree.

Nahoul: Rim, are you saying that a Jew would pray next to me? Impossible!

Interviewer: Negotiations means that we will arrest, torture, and killed the mujahideen. It means that 90 percent of Palestine, our land, would go to the Jews.

Nahoul: That’s impossible.

Interviewer: Are you with them or with the resistance?

Nahoul: Am I with the negotiations or the resistance?

Interviewer: That’s what I’m asking.

Nahoul: Rim, I’m with the… pew-pew-pew… [makes the sound of gunfire] But I won’t do it by myself.

Interviewer: With whom? The resistance?

Nahoul: Well done, Rim.

Interviewer: Well said, Nahoul.

Watch your ass, Nahoul. The Zionists took out Arafat, and they took out your beloved Prophet (so your people say, anyway). Why do you think honeybees are dying all over the world? You may not want to pray next to Jews, but you’d better pray to them.

It’s not about the settlements.

What Comes Out of Hamass?

Sorry. Unpleasant, I know, but we’ve been covering Gaza’s sh*t for years—since 2006!

So, pardon us if we can’t get exercised that Arab occupiers of Gaza are still neck deep in a river of the stuff:

Raw sewage has flooded streets in a southern neighborhood of Gaza City in recent days, threatening a health disaster, writes the New York Times. The reason: cheap diesel fuel can no longer be smuggled in from Egypt, because Egypt’s army has shut down the smuggling tunnels that connected Gaza with Sinai.

The Hamas government shut down Gaza’s lone power plant on November 1, causing a pump station to flood. Three more sewage stations in Gaza City and 10 others elsewhere in Gaza are close to overflowing, sanitation officials said, and 3.5 million cubic feet of raw sewage is seeping into the Mediterranean Sea daily. “The sanitation department may soon no longer be able to pump drinking water to Gaza homes,” writes the Times.

Hamas has refused to import Israeli diesel because of taxes imposed by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority, which is led by rival terror organization Fatah.

After seven years (make it eight—Israel rendered Gaza judenrein in 2005), you are what your turd-strewn streets say you are. You know what they say: sh*t is a choice. Well, no they don’t, but they should. Make nice with Egypt, pay your taxes, or live in your own feces. I can respect any decision.

Hamas: Balfour Declaration still impacting Palestinians

Gaza – Housing starts in Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem are up 70 percent this year, despite the renewal of so-called ‘peace talks.” [Fox Butterfield, is that you?]

More than 550,000 Jewish colonizing settlers have moved onto Palestinian land, in attempts to Judaize and confiscate what is left of Palestine. All of this is started with a 64-word letter that British Foreign Minister Arthur James Balfour wrote to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain, via Lord Rothschild. [Yay!]

Since the Balfour Declaration was made on Nov. 2, 1917, more than 7 million Palestinians have been made refugees and thousands are dead. The Balfour Declaration instantly changed the fate of Palestine and began the Zionists’ process of ethnically cleansing Palestinians from their homeland, which continues until today. [I suspect that almost every Arab alive on Nov. 2, 1917 is now dead. As is Lord Balfour and Lord Rothschild.]

This sad date in history is a reminder of the injustice done to the Palestinian people in 1917, with the United Nation’s partition of Palestine in 1947, the creation of the so-called “State of Israel” in 1948, and Israel’s occupation of the remainder of historic Palestine – the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza – in 1967.

Don’t forget the adoption of the Balfour Declaration by the League of Nations! The State of Israel has been blessed by the international community—twice!

Bless Hamass, they even print the historic document themselves:

Foreign Office

November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur James Balfour

I still get a chill reading that. Typically, the British did nothing to follow up on it—in fact, they quickly reneged on the Trans-Jordan territorial promise—and the Jews that survived a pan-continental pogrom had to take back by force the land promised them by man and God. But still, it’s the thought that counts.

Anyway, who needs Britain’s permission or a gun when shekels would do?

The Balfour Declaration merely acknowledged a millennial truth: the Jews had lived, and would forever live, in the Holy Land, since Moses led them there in fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham. I am not religious, but I accept that as the starting place for all discussions of who displaced whom.

A Travesty of a Mockery of a Sham

How dare they!

The Israeli government on Wednesday denied an official European Union delegation entry to the Gaza Strip, claiming the visit would strengthen the ruling Hamas movement.

Six members of an EU Parliament delegation to the Palestinian Legislative Council were due to visit Gaza from Oct. 27-30 in a trip largely focused on social, economic and humanitarian issues, including visits to UNRWA health centers, schools, food distribution centers, rehabilitation centers and sports clubs.

The MEPs, from a cross-section of political parties representing six EU member states, were informed in an email by Israeli authorities that they would not be allowed into Gaza via the Erez crossing for the three-day visit, which also included trips to Christian schools, a sports clubs and the University of Palestine.

Emer Costello, chair of the European Parliament’s delegation to the Palestinian Legislative Council, said she was “astounded and dismayed” by Israel’s decision to refuse an official EU visit.

“Despite interventions by the President of Parliament and other distinguished Parliamentarians, the Israeli Authorities are preventing elected members of an official delegation from paying a humanitarian visit to this ravaged and impoverished little country,” Costello said in a statement.

What an outrage! What a scandal! What a… oh, never mind:

Egyptian authorities on Saturday closed the Rafah crossing, which borders the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, indefinitely after granting passes for Palestinians returning from Saudi Arabia following the Hajj pilgrimage.

Egypt had opened the crossing for one week until yesterday. An official Egyptian source told DPA that the crossing will be closed indefinitely until further notice.

The Euroweenies should thank their lucky stars they don’t have to go to that “ravaged and impoverished little country”. Though technically it’s not a country. Gaza is a strip, like a mall or a runway. But then, if you come from some place like Belgium, your standards are understandably low.
