Hamas Rocket Explodes in the Sea

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Hamas terrorists Monday afternoon again fired a rocket that fell short of Israel and exploded in the Mediterranean Sea.

At least three similar incidents occurred last week, and military officials publicly have dismissed the rocket launches as nothing more than military exercises.

That explanation ignores the question, “Why is Hamas launching rockets during a cease-fire and when ‘indirect’ talks are taking place between Hamas and Israel, mediated by Egypt?

There are several possibilities.

More wishful thinking than anything else, Hamas is trying to fire on its own population and then blame Israel.

Tying for the least likely probability is that Hamas simply is losing its touch and is out of practice since the end, so far, of the war. Perhaps its terrorists have forgotten that Israel is north, and not west, of Gaza.

That theory presumes that Hamas is trying to attack Israel, which might be true only in the future, after a cease-fire is solidly established, but it is unlikely that Hamas would aim for Israel now and risk instant retaliation what would cause further deterioration in its foreign and domestic relations that still have not gone the way of missiles intercepted by the Iron Dome..

The estimation that Hamas is carrying out military exercises makes sense if Hamas is trying out a new kind of rocket or if terrorists are bored making rockets and need to stay busy to justify their salaries.

Or perhaps, just perhaps, Hamas is serving notice on Israel that it cannot forget about any efforts to dis-arm the terrorist organization.

Five Anti-Zionist Doctors ‘Hijack’ Medical Journal to Dump on Israel

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Two of five doctors who hijacked a highly respected British medical journal in August to publish a venomous anti-Israel article also used their email to endorse a video by white supremacist and former KKK Grand Wizard and a  David Duke.

The Lancet, described by the London Telegraph as ”a venerable and well-respected British medical journal, published an “open letter for the people of Gaza ”that condemned Israel’s counter-terror campaign. The “letter” actually was an article.

Other medical publications, most notably the British Medical Journal, routinely allow their authors to exploit their positions to dump on Israel, but the endorsement of David Duke’s video crossed all red lines – except Lancet’s.

The journal’s editor, Dr. Richard Horton refused to apologize for publishing the article co-authored by a KKK enthusiast and told the Telegraph, “I don’t honestly see what all this has to do with the Gaza letter. I have no plans to retract the letter, and I would not retract the letter even if it was found to be substantiated.”

The dwindling anti-Israel crowd, whose soap box get smaller and smaller and smaller as Hamas war crimes become larger and larger, is so intellectually bankrupt that Dr. Horton had to resort to total illogic to back himself. “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand,” he said.

And this man calls himself a doctor?

The David Duke video in question is called “CNN, Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matri, in which Duke claims that “the Zionist Matrix of Power controls Media, Politics and Banking” and that “some of the Jewish elite practices racism and tribalism to advance their supremacist agenda.”

The two doctors-for-Duke are Swee Ang, an orthopedic surgeon, and Paola Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy.

They not only are not embarrassed over their open anti-Semitic statements but actually defend them.

“This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!” wrote Dr. Ang after watching the Duke video.

Dr. Manduca, besides endorsing the video, “forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews,” according to the Telegraph. In one e-mail, she wrote, “Let us hope that someone in the FBI is smart enough to look more carefully at the clues in Boston and find the real culprits behind these bombings instead of buying the Zionist spin.”

Dr. Ang explained to the newspaper, “I didn’t know who David Duke was, or that he was connected to the Ku Klux Klan. I am concerned that if there is any truth in the video, that Jews control the media, politics and banking, what on earth is going on? I was worried.”

Here is a woman, a doctor, who saw something on the Internet and was worried that “if” there was any truth to it, he was worried.

And this woman calls herself a doctor?

If she was worried about truth in what he reads, she should start with the Koran.

As for Dr. Manduca, she said that she is not anti-Semitic, God forbid, and that her “right of freedom of opinion” justifies her statements.

No, she is not anti-Semitic but in the same breath told the Telegraph, she “does not agree or value the politics of the government of Israel, nor of many others, including Jews in and out of Israel.”

Another author of the article in Lancet is Dr. Mads Gilbert, who told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in 2001 that he supported terrorist attacks in the “connect” that 9/11 atrocities was a result of Western foreign policy.

White House Promised Lady Gaga She Would Be Safe in Israel

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Lady Gaga received assurances from the White House before she traveled to Tel Aviv for her performance earlier this month, she told the Associated Press in an interview.

Either she never heard of the Boycott Israel movement, a virtual impossibility, or she simply showed great political savvy by ignoring the issue when asked in the interview, “Other singers have backed out of performing in Tel Aviv. How did you make the decision to perform there this week?”

Lady Gaga didn’t miss a beat and responded as if the interviewer asked if it was safe to be in Israel only a few days after an uncertain end to the war in Gaza.

“I was very confident based on my relationships with lots of internal, political people,” she answered.” We’re very lucky to have great relationships with the White House. They let us know it would be very safe while we were there.”

Lady Gaga and President Obama have a solid political relationship based on a politician’s best friend – money.

They met at a fundraiser in 2011 where approximately 70 guests paid the privilege to attend to the tune of $38,500 per couple.

She was her usual gutsy self, having tweeted before the event that she intended to raise the issue of bullying when she would meet the president.

“I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey,” the singer tweeted.

Obama reportedly spoke to her of his administration’s work against the practice of bullying, and he later commented that his meeting with her was a little intimidating.”

If that is the case, Israel can learn from Lady Gaga how to deal with Obama and with has become his legendary pressure on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to toe his line.

After having performed at Obama’s second inaugural in 2012, she has an inside track to the White House.

With a war going in Gaza and missiles exploding over the skies of Tel Aviv, Lady Gaga had reservations about her life and turned to the White House for assurances, that presumably precluded any pressure by the White House on Netanyahu to stop funding for the Iron Dome anti-missile system for Israel is he did not soften up on a cease-fire.

Now we know that Lady Gaga should be Israel’s ambassador to the United States.

Np one could have spoken for Israel as well as she did after her performance. She told the Associated Press that she hoped “to share…with the world…that they know it is safe to be in Tel Aviv right now…I felt a beautiful energy when I was there.”

Next time there is a war, which is more likely to happen if and when there is a formal cease-fire with Hamas, Israel should pay Lady Gag to return for a performance in Sderot. Obama will make sure the Negev is safe, at least for a couple of hours while Lady Gaga performs.

Below are Lady Gaga’s performance at his inaugural and a spoof YouTube of a supposed rendition by Obama of her “Do What U Want.”

Hamas Angry with Palestinian Authority

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

The sniping and infighting between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority hasn’t yet reached the levels of throwing each other off the rooftops again, or even knee-capping, but it is getting there.

The Palestinian Authority is publicly calling Hamas corrupt (talk about the pot calling the kettle black) and says Hamas is stealing foreign aid money, and even charging Gazans to migrate from Gaza (pointing out that they then die in sinking ships).

Hamas, for their part are hitting back and calling the Palestinian Authority non-patriotic and non-Islamic.

In the above cartoon published by Hamas, discovered by Khaled Abu Toameh on multiple Hamas websites, Hamas describes their Palestinian Authority brethren in Judea and Samaria as drunken (non-Islamic) slobs, who are too busy to liberate “Palestine” from the Settlers (non-patriotic).

Them be fighting words.

Report: IDF Foils Rosh Hashana Terror Attack Set for Gush Etzion

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Released for publication: Israel’s security establishment has foiled a terror attack that was set to take place on Rosh Hashana.

Seven Hamas terrorists were arrested late Sunday night (Sept. 21) by IDF soldiers from the Duchifat battalion. The fugitives are suspected of plotting to carry out a terror attack in Gush Etzion during the Jewish new year holiday.

According to a report posted on the Hebrew-language 0404 website, IDF soldiers made the arrests in the Palestinian Authority Arab town of Kfar Sair, northeast of Hebron. During a search of the houses the soldiers also uncovered a large cache of ammunition and knives.

All seven suspects were turned over to the Shin Bet for interrogation.

A total of 16 fugitives were arrested overnight in Judea and Samaria for terrorist activity, rioting and disturbing the peace, according to an IDF spokesperson. All were transferred to security personnel for further questioning.

In other security-related news, Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with IDF soldiers during riots earlier Sunday night in the PA-controlled city of Bethlehem.

Several “protesters” suffered the after-effects of inhaling tear gas after IDF soldiers fired tear gas canisters to control the violent mob.

Cairo Cease-fire Talks Moved Up in Deference to Jewish Holidays

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Cease-fire negotiations in Cairo between Israel and Gaza terrorist factions were moved up to Tuesday this week in deference to the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana.

Israel has confirmed it will send a delegation to the Egyptian capital to resume talks over a permanent cease-fire with Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization and other allied terrorists.

The main demand that will be brought to the table by Israel at this point is the requirement that Gazans be disarmed – the one issue that is likely to torpedo the talks altogether, since Hamas and its allies are refusing to lay down their weapons.

Hamas, meanwhile, is demanding the construction of a seaport and airport, both of which would constitute immediate, free import of sophisticated weaponry from Iran and other major international military backers. In the past Israel has not agreed to this condition.

In addition, Hamas is demanding that Israel free hundreds of terrorist prisoners in exchange for the bodies of IDF soldiers 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin and 1st Sgt. Oron Shaul, o.b.m. Both fell in the line of duty this summer while fighting in Israel’s counter terror Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

Ahead of the cease-fire talks, Egypt is also hosting negotiations between Hamas and its rival in the Palestinian Authority unity government, the Fatah faction led by PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Negotiations With Hamas Moved Up a Day

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

Negotiations between Israel and the Hamas terrorist group were supposed to recommence this Wednesday in Cairo, but someone with a Jewish calendar must have finally realized that Wednesday night begins the High Holiday of Rosh Hashana, and the timing was not the best.

So, the “indirect” negotiations were pushed forward by one day, to this Tuesday.

Presumably Israel will tell Hamas to demilitarize, and Hamas will respond by demanding a sea and air port, so they can more easily import larger missiles, then everyone will wish each other happy new year, and go home.

Whether or not an unsatisfied Hamas will launch rockets at Israel during the holidays remains to be seen.
