Hamas Leader Mashaal Blames Netanyahu for Bloodshed

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Hamas’ top boss Khaled Mashaal blamed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the recent escalation in terror in an interview with Britain’s Sky News.

“Our fight is a national fight, but Netanyahu is turning it into a religious fight. He bears responsibility for the consequences of what is happening,” he said. “

He explained the violence as a law similar to that in physics that “for every action there’s a reaction.”

Mashaal continued, “The action of the occupation targeting the Islamic and the Christian Holy sites, in Jerusalem and Palestine, and specifically the Al Aqsa Mosque, brings about the angry Palestinian reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire when he allows members of his government, the Knesset, and the extremists to repeatedly storm the Al Aqsa mosque – that’s dangerous.”

Since he is so sensitive to the Muslim claim that the Temple Mount is only for Muslims, how does he explain the massacre of four Jews whole they were praying in a synagogue when they were shot and axed to death last month?

Well, you see, this was a “rare occasion” that a synagogue was targeted, but Netanyahu angered the Muslims, so he is to blame.

“We can’t take events out of context, Mashaal reasoned. “ I told you, for every action there is a reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire and he will bear the consequences of that. The Aqsa mosque is for the Muslims. The Muslims were blocked from praying there. The soldiers and the police and the right-wing extremists were allowed to storm in with their shoes, into the sanctuary of the Mosque — this is playing with fire. Netanyahu is responsible for the killing of the Israelis first, and the Palestinian deaths that followed, because of what is being committed against our people and for them not having hope on the horizon for a just settlement of the Palestinian cause.”

Why didn’t anyone realize that until now? Jews “storm” the Muslim Al Qaeda Aqsa mosque, so Muslims attack Jews in their own house of worship.

You know, an eye for an eye, or in this case, an eye for a lie.

Jews visiting the Temple Mount do not “storm” the Al Aqsa mosque, the term the Arab world uses every time a Jew steps foot on the holy site, all of which it considers the “compound” of the Al Aqsa Mosque

The only time the mosque area is stormed is when police respond to Muslim “worshippers” who pray by trying to kill the Jews.

“The Palestinian people no longer have anything to lose,” he said in the interview..” In light of the continuation of the occupation and settlements, stealing the land, the attacks on women and children, and the Holy sites – this is spontaneous….

“It gives two messages: the first message is that the Israeli stubbornness, combined with the international impotence in solving the Palestinian issue with a just solution, enabling the Palestinian people their self-determination, and getting rid of occupation and building an independent state — this will lead to chaos in the region, not just in the Palestinian arena, but an open conflict — a blood bath.”

Blood, More blood. Keep the Jewish blood flowing until there is none left.

And it’s all Netanyahu’s fault.

“I think Netanyahu’s position is now revealed to everyone in international public opinion,” according to Mashaal.” Even in the West. Put Hamas aside, what about Mr. Mahmoud Abbas? He has positions which satisfy western and American standards. And with all this, what has Netanyahu done in return for it? Nothing. He thwarted all peace initiatives even the American efforts that were hosted by Mr. John Kerry for almost a year.

Hamas Claims Victory, Says Elections are Proof

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Hamas claimed yesterday that Israel’s decision to hold early elections was proof that Hamas defeated Israel this past summer in Operation Protective Edge, according to Khaled Abu Toameh.

The Palestinian Authority last held elections in 2005, and have chosen to not hold elections since then.

Hamas violently took over Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007, despite Hamas’s strong showing in the 2005 elections.

After all, they believe elections are for losers.

Exposed Hamas Terrorist Cell a ’Drop in the Bucket’

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

The capture of a Hamas terrorist network with tentacles in Turkey, Jordan and Syria is only one of several counter-terrorist maneuvers that still remain secret, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday.

Speaking at the ceremony to rededicate David Ben-Gurion’s hut at Sde Boker in the Negev, the Prime Minister commended the Shin Bet and IDF “for foiling very dangerous terrorist actions that could have claimed many victims in our country.”

He noted that although the gag order on the two-month-old arrests was lifted, “there are many actions that remain secret, counter-terrorist actions against Hamas, which challenges the existence of the Jewish nation-state and, in effect, challenges the existence of Jews in general.”

“We are operating day and night in order to maintain the security of Israel’s citizens; the people who do this are deserving of all praise and support,” he added.

The terrorist network planned to target Jews outside the country as well in Israel.

Hamas Planned Massive Attack at Teddy Soccer Stadium in Jerusalem

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Thursday it has exposed a huge terrorist network that was aided by terrorists and commanders operating from Jordan, Syria and Turkey as well as within Judea and Samaria.

One of their targets was Jerusalem’s Teddy stadium, home of the Betar soccer team.

They also were planned to use a car bomb and had drawn up plans for a mass casually attack on the Jerusalem light rail system, coordinated roadside bombs and shooting attacks with M-16 semi-automatic rifles, and infiltrations, murders and kidnappings in Jewish communities throughout Judea and Samaria.

The gag order on the arrests of more than 30 terrorists two months ago was lifted today. A large quantity of weapons and ammunition also were found.

At least two of those arrested are Jordanians who previously were soldiers for the kingdom, drafted by Hamas in 2010 and sent to Turkey and Gaza for training, entering the Hamas territory through smuggling tunnels from Egypt.

The command post from Turkey further shows how Hamas has been provided a deadly safe haven by Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The cells had carried out two explosions in Samaria last August, but no one was injured. The terrorists set off the bombs using a timer so that the explosions would occur when security forces were on the scene. One of the bombs went off at the Rehalim junction.

The explosions were carried out under instructions from Hamas commanders in Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. Investigations by the IDF and Shin Bet helped them track down the extensive terrorist network.

Among those arrested were two from Jordan, Manaf Mohammed Angvera, 28; and Abdallah Mahmoud Zitawi, 25, Jordan;

Kuwait native Mahmoud Airbajie, 25, who learned in Jordan; two Arabs from Tulkarem, east of Netanya, Rjyie Ahmed Amuri, 30; Adnan Samara, 30; Mutzav Ruwib, 23, from Bethlehem; and Tzuhiv Rabat, 29, from the Jordan Valley.

Egypt’s al-Sisi Tips His Hand, Israel Be Careful

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi accidentally showed his dangerous side to Israel.

A few days ago, during his trip to Italy, al-Sisi voiced a radical proposition that showed more of his cards than he probably planned to show off.

He proposed that Egypt could deploy Egyptian military troops into Judea and Samaria, to “temporarily” monitor and act as a guarantor for the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Egypt has been increasing its troop deployments along the Gaza border, usually in coordination with Israel, in order to fight Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas terrorists who are attacking Egypt. That sounds fair enough, despite the treaty violations.

But his recent proposal shows us that al-Sisi has far bigger visions as to how far he wants to really extend and expand his military might, all the way onto a second Israeli front.

No one in Israel will consider this a serious proposal, but it does give us insight into al-Sisi’s long term thinking, and the next time al-Sisi asks Israel to ignore the Camp David Peace Treaty and let Egypt insert more troops into the Sinai along Israel’s border, Israel should keep in mind that al-Sisi has bigger dreams, and more Egyptian troops along the Israeli southern border is just one them.
