Indignant Abbas Won’t Accept ‘Execution’ of Palestinian ‘Children’

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas stepped up to pour a little ignition fluid on the flames of terror on Wednesday.

In a speech from his headquarters in the Palestinian Arab capital city of Ramallah in Samaria, Abbas attacked Israel’s response to the current wave of terror.

“We are peaceful, but we will not accept the actions of the settlers and the executions of Palestinian children under occupation,” he said, according to translations by Channel 2 television news and Ha’aretz.

“We will not concede to Israel’s occupation policies and those of its settlers who terrorize our holy sites, our women, our land, and execute our youths, like they did to 13-year-old Ahmed,” he continued, in a reference to one of two assailants involved in an especially vicious terror attack this week in Pisgat Ze’ev.

The prime minister’s office responded bluntly that the speech was filled with lies: “The boy referenced is alive (not “executed”) and still hospitalized after stabbing an Israeli riding his bike. While Israel maintains the status quo on the Temple Mount, Abbas makes cynical use of religion and thus prompts terror,” the PMO said in a statement.

It is Abbas himself, in fact, who has inspired these so-called “children” to such acts. Abbas and others in his government have glorified the “sacrifices” of those who die while murdering Israeli Jews, calling them “martyrs” and referring to their spilled blood as “pure blood, clean blood.” The Palestinian Authority government each year hastens to laud dead terrorists who have murdered Israelis, naming public streets, squares and camps in their memory. Those who are incarcerated in Israeli prisons receive high salaries for their service; the more deadly the attack, the higher the salary.

And yet, Abbas delivers a performance of the indignant statesman, outraged over the untimely death or bleeding wounds of an innocent Palestinian Arab “child” by Bad Israelis and the violent Occupation.

Thank God for security cameras, which can help us tell which side of Alice’s Looking Glass we’re seeing through.

The following video shows the world the truth about the “innocent Palestinian Arab children” Abbas refers to. Peaceful is as peaceful does. The “children” in the CCTV footage released by Israel Police on Wednesday are clearly anything but babies.

Ages 13 and 17, they are clearly seen brandishing chef’s knives that are reminiscent of hatchets. They literally track their prey in the first segment, a 25-year-old religious Jewish man, older than both of them. In the second segment, only the results of the attack are seen, and one of the assailants still brandishing his knife just before he is shot.

Fully capable of planning and executing an attempt to murder, arming themselves and chasing down their prey, they are hardly children.

The “occupation” referred to by Abbas, meanwhile, is his description of this country’s establishment and its continued existence. Since the State of Israel is not going anywhere anytime soon, it would be to the benefit of the Palestinian Arab population for their leadership to make their peace with that fact, sooner rather than later.

Hamas Proudly Presents Gaza Summer Camp ‘Graduates’

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization proudly held a Graduation Day ceremony a few days ago for the older division of its “summer camp” program.

The youths demonstrated their skills during a graduation ceremony of the military-style camp organized by Hamas, whose armed wing organizes Liberation Youth Camps for Gaza teens ages between 15 and 21.

This is the incubator in which children and youths are programmed to become the next generation of guerrilla fighters for the terrorist organization.

The “campers” were put through their paces to exhibit skills that ranged from learning hand-to-hand combat to how to aim and fire guns, jump through fiery hoops, climb ropes and walls, and camouflage themselves well enough to avoid detection.

Hamas also runs a similar military “summer camp” for children of younger ages as well — children as young as five years old.

Jerusalem Cleric Shares Tale of 4 Childred Martyred by ISIS

Monday, December 15th, 2014

‘A great miracle happened there, in our days,’ each year reminds us of the historic events that led to the creation of the ancient Jewish Festival of Lights, Chanukah.

The story is told about the Jewish revolt of the Macabees and the miracle of the single cruse of purified oil for the Holy Temple which lasted an entire eight days until a new supply could be secured. And it includes the tale of Chana and her seven sons who were involved in the war, each of whom refused to bow down to an idol – right down to the youngest, a mere young child – preferring to die for the sanctification of God’s Name rather than profane it.

Imagine the irony, therefore, to know that now and in our present day, there are Christian children led by a cleric who once learned in a yeshiva in Jerusalem, who this year were faced with the very same dilemma.

The little Christian children were threatened with death by extremist “Muslim” monsters from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS, if they would not convert to a faith not their own.

Like the Jewish children of old, they refused.

All four children were under age 15, according to Canon Andrew White, the “Vicar of Baghdad,” who told the tale from Jerusalem in late November to the Orthodox Christian Network.

“ISIS turned up and said to the children, ‘You say the words that you will follow Muhammad, and the children, all under 15, four of them, they said, ‘No we love Yeshua… We have always followed Yeshua.’

“They said, ‘Say the words! They said, ‘No, we can’t.’ They chopped all their heads off. How do you respond to that? You just cry,” recounted Canon White.

“They are my children. That is what we have been going through and that is what we are going through.”

ISIS is currently hunting for the vicar, he was warned. The Archbishop of Canterbury has ordered him to leave Iraq as a result, for his own safety. Having once learned Old Testament from its original sources in an Orthodox Yeshiva in Jerusalem’s ancient neighborhoods, and Biblical analysis from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, perhaps it was only natural for him to return to the Holy Land when it was time to leave Iraq.

“I am in Israel now,” he explained, adding that some 250,000 Iraqi Christians are displaced. The group once numbered 1.5 million. There once were more than 300 churches in Iraq; most recently there were 58.

On Monday, ISIS launched a siege on a cafe in the busy commercial and government center in Sydney, Australia. As of 6:30 am Monday morning Israel time, the terrorists were still holding customers hostage in the cafe.

3 Wounded Syrian Children brought to Israel for Medical Treatment

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Three Syrian children wounded Saturday night in a lethal mortar shell attack in a courtyard where they were playing were brought to the Rebecca Sieff (Ziv) Hospital in Safed (Tsfat) for medical treatment.

A 7-year-old boy was in serious condition with chest wounds and a broken hand; a 10-year-old boy was also in serious condition with shrapnel wounds all over his body, including his head; and an 8-year-old girl with a leg wound was listed in moderate condition. The mortar shell that wounded the three children left the rest of their playmates dead.

Sieff Hospital reported Saturday that the children were being treated in the emergency room and will be operated on following exams and x-rays.

A total of 376 Syrians wounded as a result of their country’s civil war have received treatment at the Israeli hospital.

2 Children Wounded in Katyusha Attack from Lebanon

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Two 5-year-old children in the western Galilee northern Israel suffered shrapnel wounds Saturday night in a Katyusha rocket attack from southern Lebanon. They were treated on the scene before they were taken to hospital, where they are both listed in good condition.

Eight other people were also taken to hospital to be treated for shock. In addition, 13 others were treated on site for trauma and anxiety.

All told, 23 people were hurt in the attack.

It is not clear which terrorist organization launched the attack. But Lebanese authorities have tracked down the source of the launch to the town of Dheira, close to two miles (three kilometers) north of the border with Israel. Lebanese security officials said they spotted Israeli helicopters during the day flying across the border.

This is not the first time a rocket has been fired at Israel from Lebanon during this summer’s Operation Protective Edge. At least nine rockets were fired at Israel in mid-July. Lebanese military officials said at the time they believed a small Palestinian Arab terror group was acting in solidarity with Hamas.

About five minutes after Saturday night’s Lebanese Katyusha attack, terrorists in Gaza launched a massive missile barrage at central and southern Israel.

Among all the other rockets and missiles that were flying, three Grad missiles were aimed at Be’er Sheva. Two hit a residential area of the city, damaging an apartment building. The third missile hit an unoccupied car in a parking lot.

An older couple hurried but found themselves unable to reach a bomb shelter in time; both sustained shrapnel wounds. They were treated on the scene and then taken to Soroka Medical Center, where they are listed in good condition. A number of others were treated for trauma and anxiety following the attack.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense battery intercepted a missile fired from Gaza that was headed straight for Petah Tikvah. Another Iron Dome team intercepted missiles headed for Sderot and two locations in central Israel.

Search for Mohammed Deif Continues in Gaza City Ruins

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

The bodies of a 14 year old son of Mohammed Deif and a 48 year old woman were pulled from the rubble of a six-story dwelling Wednesday, sources say.

Gazans continue to search the rubble for Deif, the ‘spiritual leader’ of the Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing of Hamas, in the ruins of the former al-Dalou home in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City.

Deif was meeting with two other top Hamas military commanders, one of whom was Mohamed Yassin, chief of Hamas operations, in the house when Israel Air Force fighter pilots destroyed it with bunker buster bombs in an air strike overnight Tuesday.

The body of 27-year-old Widad, Mohamed Deif’s second wife, and her 7-month-old son Ali, were recovered lateTuesday night following the attack on the home, which belonged t othe al-Dalou family. The building was pulverized into a “pile of dust, debris and twisted metal, and leaving a huge crater in the ground where the building once stood,” said witnesses quoted by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

GOC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman warned heads of the regional council districts and government entities located near the Gaza border to “prepare for massive rocket fire” prior to the strike.

Deif survived four prior targeted assassination attempts over the years and it is not yet clear whether he survived the strike. He is considered the mastermind behind numerous suicide bombing plots in Israel, particularly during the second intifada (2000-2005) and is held personally responsible for the deaths of dozens of Israelis.

Why Were Children Playing on a Gaza Beach When IDF Targeted a Terror Site?

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Four Gaza children are dead in the aftermath of an attack Wednesday afternoon by the Israeli Navy that was aimed at Hamas terrorist operatives in Gaza City.  The incident, which raised an international outcry, is under investigation by the IDF.

Washington Post journalist William Booth reported in a column for the newspaper that Hamas often uses a site near the civilian hotel along the beach as a launching pad from which to fire rocket attacks against Israel. “It is not unusual for militants to launch rockets from sites near my hotel,” he wrote in his column on July 16.

A New York Times reporter also noted that a structure near the beach had been targeted in the attack by the IDF.

“My driver and I rushed to the window to see what had happened. A small shack atop a sea wall at the fishing port had been struck by an Israeli bomb or missile and was burning… “

It is clear the IDF was not just firing at little boys on the beach, but rather was aiming at a specific structure; most likely a concealed rocket launcher, similar to the hundreds of others that have been targeted and destroyed by IAF pilots over the past year.

If Hamas had not used the site to attack Israel, the IDF would not have fired at the spot to silence the rocket fire – Israel’s standard response to Hamas attacks.

Gaza residents have been repeatedly warned to distance themselves from terrorist sites and terrorist activity in order to remain safe and avoid endangering their children. The IDF has made phone calls to their homes and sent text messages to their cell phones, and dropped flyers in their neighborhoods to warn them to evacuate areas they intend to attack.

For comparison purposes:

Between 2001-2014, some 21,000 to 23,000 civilians were killed in Afghanistan.

Between 2001-2014, 20,000 to 30,000 civilians were killed in Pakistan.

Between 2001-2014, 133,000 to 147,000 civilians were killed in Iraq.

All these civilians were all killed by U.S., French, British and German forces.

Have any of those nations dropped flyers, made phone calls or otherwise notified the civilians in the targeted territories prior to launching their attacks?
