AIDING AND ABETTING

New Concessions to Hamas: Territorial Water Doubled, Smuggling and Infiltration Made Easier

In practice this will mean that Israeli naval forces will not be challenging Gazan boats.

No more: an IDF gunboat sprays an Arab fishing boat with a water cannon to push it back within the 3-mile limit off the coast of Gaza.

Egyptian, Israeli and Hamas officials will meet next Monday in Cairo to discuss the aftermath of the ceasefire agreement, Ma’an reported.

The Office of Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said he was informed by the director of Egyptian intelligence that Israel agreed to allow Gaza fishermen to go six nautical miles off the coast of Gaza instead of three, which has been the limit under Israel’s siege.

“Israel has allowed Palestinian fishermen to fish in Gaza’s waters at a distance of six miles, up from three miles,” Haniyeh’s office said.

Israeli diplomatic sources confirmed that, subject to the understandings reached with Hamas in the ceasefire memoranda, Israel began today, Saturday, to provide relief to the civilian population in the Gaza Strip, and the first such relief came in the form of aiding the Gazan fishing industry by doubling the permitted fishing territory from three to six miles.

In practice this will mean that Israeli naval forces will not be challenging Gazan boats. And Hamas’s deputy politburo chief Mousa Abu Marzook already told AP that Hamas won’t stop making weapons in Gaza or smuggling them in from the outside.

“These weapons protected us and there is no way to stop obtaining and manufacturing them,” he said.

This was to be expected, since the main lesson Israel taught the Arabs last wee was that the only way to get results from it is by killing its innocent civilians.

Israel’s contribution to the Hamas war effort will be the further easing of limits and controls over the Gaza crossings, both into Israel and Egypt.

And, according to Ynet, Gaza residents said on Saturday they are now able to enter an Israeli-enforced buffer zone on the Gaza side of the border with Israel without fear of being fired on. A few years ago, the IDF declared a 300-meter-wide zone closed to Arab movement, in order to prevent terrorists from entering Israel.

But on Saturday, farmer Nidal Abu Dakka said soldiers stood by and watched as he and others moved close to the fence.

What a relief.

  1. Yanover, the liar! You want more Palestinian blood, like in Deir Yassin & Sabra and Chatilah! How many massacres will you offer again to your shameless zionists?

  2. Roc Diaz says:

    I don't see why we had to give them a single thing. we should be the one making demands, like the destruction of underground tunnels used for smuggling. stupid to give them anything. if that's the case then maybe they really did come out ahead. the israelis just spent a billion dollars in 8 days defending its citizens and now have to give them extra waters as well? its backwards

  3. Hadar Israel says:

    Free weapons smuggling again, as it was after May 5 1994, with the Cairo agreement signed by schmuck Rabin… Remember AraBfaRt having a temper tantrum LIVE in front of the world cameras, Clinton, Mubarak, Rabin, Peres, etc. wit Mubarak teling him in front of the microphones "qtam, qelb!"? WELL… It was about the maps limiting territorial waters' depth for the Gaza Strip… AraBfaRT, who was a pedophile and a murderer but not a drunk addicted to alcohol and cigarettes, contrary to Rabin, knew what he was doing, and obtained enough distance to make it IMPOSSIBLE for Israeli "dvorim" and other coastal guard boats, to stop speed-boats coming from El Arish and Rafah… A SHORT TIME LATER THE FIRST HIGH-POWER EXOPLSOIVES (Semtex from Sudan) came into Gaza and then blew-up the first car-bomb in Afula, and it was FORBIDDEN IN ISRAEL to speak about the issue: they could not allow the truth to come out: HIGH POWER EXPLOSIVES IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS AS A DIRECT CONSEQUENCE OF OSLO II!

  4. Isn't it just .. I am very disappointed in Israel… I thought they were stronger than that…

  5. Paula Snyder says:

    Israel had to know that Hamas would never keep their part of the peace deal. As usual, Israel is being pushed and demanded to 'GIVE ALL", and get more terror against it's people.

  6. Ted Nickel says:

    Read the book, as America has done to Israel.
