Watch Hamas Film Banned by Gaza U. because of Fears of Losing Funding [video]

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

The Islamic University of Gaza, which has close links with Hamas, has banned students from screening a movie of Hamas terrorist activities because of fears it would lose funding from international sources.

The university was co-founded by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, who was one of the founders of Hamas and one of its most deadly terrorists before the IDF assassinated him.

The movie deals with the First Intifada.

Arab media reported Tuesday that the university banned students Sunday night from screening the film that shows terrorists in action and clashes with Israeli soldiers.

An expose in 2008 revealed that the U.S. government authorized almost $1 million in foreign aid to the Islamic University of Gaza despite multiple vetting of the school for ties to terrorism.

The prime minister of Hamas at the time sat on the Islamic University’s board of trustees.

Previous donors to the university have included the Union of Good, a worldwide collection of charities collecting money for Hamas and headed by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi.

Other world donors have been the World Bank, Arab Student Aid International, United Palestinian Appeal, Islamic Relief, British Council, Islamic Development Bank and Human Appeal International.

The university has also recently been accepting donations from the Middle East Children’s Alliance for its rebuilding efforts.

Arab academics, writing on behalf of the Alliance, have claimed that the description of links between Hamas and Islamic University is a “false label.”

NGO Monitor: Negative Testimony from ‘Breaking the Silence’ Meets Quota for Grant Makers

Monday, May 4th, 2015

IDF veterans who provided negative testimony for the leftist NGO “Breaking the Silence” may not realize they are also participating in an effort by the group to fulfill a funding quota for bad stuff against Israel.

According to a report by the NGO Monitor, a number of grant-making agencies who provide funding to leftist organizations in Israel have made their patronage contingent upon the groups’ abilities to obtain a minimum number of negative “testimonies.”

“This contradicts Breaking the Silence” declarations and thus turns it into an organization that represents its foreign donors’ interest, severely damaging the NGO’s reliability and its ability to analyze complicated combat situations,” said the report.

One example is the foreign leftist Oxfam group, which signed an agreement with Breaking the Silence, according to the NGO Monitor watchdog organization.

According to that agreement, the Monitor reported, BTS was to conduct interviews with “as many” soldiers as possible who would testify regarding [Israeli] “immoral actions] that violate human rights.

Palestinian Authority TV Presents Anti-Semitic ‘Protocols’ as True

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

A Fatah party representative speaking on Palestinian Authority TV quoted from “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and referred to the content of that fabricated anti-Semitic document as true.

“According to Israel’s ideology, strategy, and policy from 1956 until now, Gaza is outside the Israeli ideological thinking. Even in their Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] and even in their bible [it says], ‘Don’t live in Gaza,’” Fatah spokesperson Osama Al-Qawasmi recently said, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported Wednesday.

The comment is the latest of many in official Palestinian Authority (PA) media reports that cite the Russian-published fabrication describing Jewish plans to subjugate the world as a legitimate source, according to PMW. Often, the “Protocols” document is used to legitimize the ancient blood libel claiming that Jews kill gentiles and use their blood to make matzah for Passover.

“We have nothing with which to speak to these Israeli murderers, who go too far with their crimes, and whose God, ‘Yahweh’, is called the Lord of Hosts and demands, according to ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,’ that they offer him sacrifices during Passover in the form of Matzah made from the blood of our children,” an editorial in the official PA daily newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, stated in July 2014.

Khaled Mashaal Vetoed Plan by Deif for Massive Attack on Kibbutz in War

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Israeli sources opened up previously secret information Wednesday and confirmed that Hamas mastermind terrorist Mohammed had planned a massive attack on a kibbutz last summer.

Sources told Army Radio that Khaled Mashaal, who rules Hamas from Qatar, prohibited Deif from carrying out his murder-kidnap plan because he feared a wide-scale Israeli invasion of Gaza.

During the Protective Edge campaign against Hamas missile attacks, the IDF discovered several tunnels, including one that reached only a few hundred feet from the dining hall of Kibbutz Kerem Shalom.

It was not known until today that plans already had been completed, possibly before the IDF discovered the tunnel, to use it to murder a large number of members of the kibbutz and kidnap others through the extensive tunnel system.

Marshall reasoned, probably correctly, that Israeli would have carried out a wide-scale and extended invasion of Gaza, an action that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu refrained from ordering during the war,

Two issues still are being argued today in Israel and Hamas. Israeli military and political circles debate whether Israel should have – and should do if there is another war – invaded Gaza and try to destroy Hamas and any other rival terror organization that threatens to rule it

Within Hamas, debate rages between the political and military echelons over the terrorist organization’s next move. An attack through the tunnel to Kerem Shalom could very well have been successful given the lack of good intelligence on the extent of the tunnel system. On the other hand, no one knows what would have been the results of a fierce Israeli retaliation except for the assumption that both sides would have suffered extensive losses of life,

The IDF tried to assassinate Deif, not for the first time, but reports that he had been killed have turned out to be wishful thinking, according to unnamed sources in Israel.

Israel’s MFA Responds to UN Report on Last Summer’s Gaza War

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

The spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued the following statement in response to the receipt of the executive summary of the UN Board of Inquiry Report regarding the 2014 Gaza conflict:

Israel has received an executive summary of the UN Board of Inquiry (BOI) report and will study it carefully, with a view to continuing its cooperation with the UN Secretary General and his staff regarding the protection of UN facilities, particularly in periods of armed conflict.

As noted in the Secretary General’s letter, Israel cooperated fully with this inquiry and facilitated the work of the BOI in fulfilling its mandate. This cooperation demonstrates once again that, when asked to assist in a professional and unbiased inquiry, Israel responds in a collaborative, open and forthcoming manner, notwithstanding some reservations it may have concerning certain aspects of the process and as well as some of the report’s findings and conclusions.

The executive summary of the report clearly documents the exploitation by terrorist organizations of UN facilities in the Gaza Strip.

Israel is committed to working jointly with the UN in order to improve the security of UN facilities in the Gaza Strip, with special emphasis on preventing such exploitation by terrorists. Moreover, Israel is prepared to extend its assistance to UNRWA, with the aim of preventing the recurrence of circumstances under which UN facilities are used to carry out terrorist activity, in blatant violation of international law, and in a manner that gravely endangers civilians, including UN staff.

All of the incidents attributed by the report to Israel have already been subject to thorough examinations, and criminal investigations have been launched where relevant.

This serves as further evidence of Israel’s serious approach to this issue, its capacity and desire to carry out independent investigations and its commitment to the rule of law. Israel makes every effort to avoid harm to sensitive sites, in the face of terrorist groups who are committed not only to targeting Israeli civilians but also to using Palestinian civilians and UN facilities as shields for their terrorist activities.

Egypt Destroys 285 Smuggling and Terror Tunnels in Three Months

Monday, April 20th, 2015

The Egyptian army has destroyed 185 smuggling and terror tunnels under the border between Egypt and Gaza since February, according to the country’s military spokesman.

Sixty-nine of them were destroyed in the past three weeks. One of them was more than a mile long and 10 feet deep and was used for smuggling weapons and people.

Cairo has proposed that digging a tunnel along the border is a crime, with a punishment of life in prison.

The clampdown on the tunnels, following several murderous terrorist attacks on Egyptian soldiers, has been met with almost total silence by the United Nations and foreign media, unlike the condemnation of Israel when the IDF used to shut down the tunnels.

Egypt also has created a buffer zone and destroyed more than 1,100 houses on the Egyptian side of the border with Gaza.

Bomb Explodes at UNRWA Headquarters in Gaza

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Two bombs exploded simultaneously at UNRWA headquarters and near a Hamas police station Saturday night.

No one was injured, and no organization has take responsibility for the twin attacks. The bomb at UNRWA exploded “about ten feet from the door, causing no casualties or damage,” according to the U.N. agency’s spokesperson Adnan abu Hasna.

The second device blast was near the home of a Hamas public prosecutor.

The two attacks followed one on Friday that set on fire Hamas offices that are in the former home of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Hamas has been facing internal struggles, especially between the political and military echelon as well as eternal rivalry from other terrorist organizations.

A delegation of the so-called unity government of Hamas and Abbas’ Fatah movement is supposed to visit Gaza this week. There is no chance Ababa will visit and leave alive.

Hamas’ dire circumstances are reflected in the revival of a threat to kidnap Israelis and its rapid rebuilding of terror tunnels, thanks to financial aid from Qatar and Iran.

The bomb at UNRWA was aimed at the organization that one the one hand has imprisoned tens of thousands of Gazans with eternal hopelessness as “refugees’ and on the other hand has made them dependent on them to live. The bombs near Hamas’ office and the police station are aimed at getting rid of the terrorist regime so a different one can take over.

When things can’t get worse, Hamas tries to make the people feel good by ramping up for war on Israel.
