Hamas Dentist of Death Arrested and Indicted

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Following an investigation by the Israeli police and the Shabak, an Israeli-Arab dentist from Kafr Kana has been arrested and indicted for illegally transferring money to and for the Hamas terrorist organization.

The report has been under a court-ordered gag order since April 17th, until it was lifted today.

The dentist, Malik Mubarak Jamil Khatib, was arrested after it was discovered that he was systematically and personally funneling large sums of money for Hamas on a regular basis.

Instructions and sometimes money came from Hamas in Gaza, and the money was being used to build up Hamas’s terror infrastructure in Judea and Samaria.

The dentist was arrested while one of his daily money drops to a Hamas representative near Ramallah.

Khatib had NIS 170,000 (~$42,000) in cash on his possession at the time.

Last year, Hamas terrorists funneled in large sums of money to set up the terror infrastructure in Hebron for the kidnapping and murder of Jewish teenagers, Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Fraenkel and Gilad Sha’er in Gush Etzion.

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.”

IDF Uncovers Weapons Factory in Hebron

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Police (Shin Bet) and IDF have uncovered a weapons manufacturing laboratory in Hebron, where Hamas has a large presence.

The factory made guns and ammunition, and Israeli forces confiscated a large number of weapons, including Gustav handguns, M-16 rifles, bullets and tools for repairing guns.

Hebron has replaced Jenin in Samaria as one of the centers of terror in Judea and Samaria.

The Hamas terrorists who kidnapped and murdered three yeshiva youth last summer are from the Hebron area.

Special Event to Mark Hamas Kidnap-Murder of 3 Israeli Teens on June 3

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

In slightly over a month, at least one million Jews will mark a horrifying event that became the straw that broke the camel’s back in Israel, igniting another war on terror in Gaza.

June 3 corresponds with the date on the Hebrew calendar that marks the abduction of Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frenkel, 16, and Gilad Sha’ar, 16.

The event is being organized by the families of the three boys, together with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and the Gesher organization.

The three families also recently celebrated the launching of the Jerusalem Unity Prize, to be awarded for the first time on June 3 as well.

Together with the Jerusalem municipality, Gesher and Israel President Reuven Rivlin, the three families celebrated the launch of the Jerusalem Unity Prize several months ago. It is intended to commemorate and further the Jewish unity that was seen when the entire nation of Israel came together to pray and help search for the missing boys.

The three boys were kidnapped on June 12 by Hamas terrorists while hitchiking home from yeshiva in Gush Etzion on a Thursday evening. They were murdered in cold blood shortly after they were grabbed; a shooting that was heard on a recording made by Israel Police when one of them managed to dial the emergency dispatcher in a desperate cry for help.

It took nearly three weeks for search and rescue teams and volunteers to locate their bodies in a shallow grave, hastily dug in a field in Halhul. During that time, Jews in Israel and around the world came together in an unprecedented show of unity to pray, demonstrate and otherwise show their support for the families and other Jews.

The bodies of the three boys were found on June 30.

NYC Transit System Bans all Political Ads

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

The New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority today, April 29, passed a resolution banning all political advertising on its subways and buses.

The reason for this counter-intuitive decision (why shut off an easy and attractive revenue stream?) is being attributed to a court decision which allowed an organization committed to fighting Islamic terrorism to promote its message in a series of advertisements which contain the phrase “Hamas Killing Jews” on New York City buses.

The organization behind those ads, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, brought a lawsuit against the MTA for trying to block one of its ads which contained the quote: “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah.” After the quote, which is attributed to Hamas TV, are the words, “That’s his Jihad. What’s yours?”

The MTA claimed this ad would incite violence. The court disagreed, stating that simply the fear of spontaneous attacks, without any evidence, is insufficient to override the freedom of speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Claiming that the action it was taking would obviate the need to litigate what kind of ads are acceptable and which ones would legitimately be rejected, the MTA board voted Wednesday, April 29, that it will no longer accept “ads for political parties, ballot referendums and any ad that is ‘political in nature.”  Commercial advertising, public-service announcements, and government-funded ads will still be allowed to run.

Pamela Geller, the president of the AFDI, said on her website that the MTA board’s decision constitutes a ban on speech in the public square. This is “Sharia in America,” she wrote.

The MTA said that the kind of advertising that will be banned accounts for less than $1 million of the MTA’s annual $138 million advertising revenue.

New York City’s is not the first transit agency to ban political ads on their public transportation systems. Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia already have such bans in place.

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.

Red Cross Says it ‘Failed to Protect Jews’ Murdered by Nazis

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

The Red Cross failed to protest Jews murdered by the Nazis, the president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said at the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camps in Geneva said that

Peter Maurer said in the keynote address:

The ICRC failed to protect civilians and, most notably, the Jews persecuted and murdered by the Nazi regime. It failed as a humanitarian organization because it lost its moral compass….

The ICRC did not see Nazi Germany for what it was. Instead, the organization maintained the illusion that the Third Reich was a ‘regular partner’, a state that occasionally violates laws, not unlike any army during World War I, occasionally using illegal means and methods of warfare.

World Jewish Congress president Ron Lauder told the audience, “World silence and indifference to the fate of the Jewish people led to the Holocaust. The Red Cross chose silence as well.”

The Geneva-based ICRC was the principal humanitarian institution maintaining communications with both the Allied and Axis powers in World War II.

The Red Cross assisted and protected to Allied prisoners of war held by Nazi Germany but not for Jewish deportees as Berlin.

The ICRC also did not publicly denounce the deportation of Jews to concentration camps.

Maurer declared at the event, called “Remembering the Shoah: The ICRC and the International Community’s Efforts in Responding to Genocide and Protecting Civilians,” that “never again” may only be an expression because “we cannot guarantee that a humanitarian catastrophe of the extent of the Holocaust will not happen again. On the contrary, we witness a catalogue of atrocities, every day, in wars across the globe.”

Lauder noted that the ‘ICRC needs to lead in struggle between good and evil’… and has an important obligation that goes beyond relief work.

Left unsaid was that the Red Cross actually helped Nazi criminals escape Germany during the war.

Also left unsaid was the Red Cross’ paralysis during the captivity of Israel soldier Gilad Shalit after he was kidnapped by Hamas. The Red Cross failed to convince Hamas to honor the Geneva Convention and allow communication with his family but continued to make sure that Gaza Arabs could visit their terrorist relatives in Israeli prisons.
