Hezbollah Used UAVs to Kill Al Qaeda Terrorists in Syria

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

For the first time, Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist organization has used unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to bomb its enemies in Syria.

Hezbollah attacked Al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al Nusra (Al Nusra Front) positions on the outskirts of Arsal, along the Syrian border, according to the Iranian FARS news agency.

Although Hezbollah has previously used the drones for reconnaissance missions this marks the first time the terrorist organization has used the UAVs in an aggressive action.

Neglecting Terror Setting Up Eastern Jerusalem Jews for Expulsion

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs attacked a school bus with large rocks and bottles in the Maaleh Zeitim neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem Sunday morning.

No one was injured although the attackers managed to smash the windshield of the bus, which was taking the children to their school in Jerusalem,

Border Police rushed to the scene, but – surprise but no surprise – no suspects were found.

Jews living in eastern Jerusalem have frequently complained of lack of police protection and of a soft-glove approach by courts when anyone is arrested and indicted.

Dozens of Jewish motorists and passengers have been ambushed several times in eastern Jerusalem the past several years, as reported here last week, here and here last month, and here in July.

Allowing Arab terrorists to rule the roads in Gush Katif in 2000-2005 was one of the factors that incited public opinion to favor expelling 9,000 Jews from 19 communities in Gaza in the summer of 2005.

Establishment media constantly claimed that the IDF could not protect their safety and that trying to do so cost the lives of soldiers as well as civilians.

The same cockeyed logic was behind the withdrawal of the IDF from the security zone in southern Lebanon in 2000, when Ehud Barak was prime minister.

Six years later, after Hezbollah exploited the total vacuum of intelligence and Israeli soldiers on the ground, it killed 121 IDF soldiers and 43 civilians in the Second Lebanon War.

More than 400 civilians were hospitalized in massive Hezbollah rocket and missile attacks, and nearly 900 suffered trauma. Approximately 6,000 homes sustained damage while 1 million residents spent much of their time in bomb shelters.

Following the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif, hams bombarded Israel from the Negev to the Galilee with thousands of missiles and rockets, and Israel still has not achieved a long-term cease-fire agreement.

Constant attacks on Jews in eastern Jerusalem, with the help of Israel and foreign establishment media, could set up another scenario for the repeatedly failed strategy of offering “peace” by telling Jews the cannot live where they want in Jerusalem.

Israeli Drone Crashes Near Border in Southern Lebanon

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

An Israeli mini-drone has crashed near Marjayoun in southern Lebanon Saturday morning near the border with Israel.

The small aircraft was flying across the border on a routine surveillance mission when it dropped from the sky, an Israeli Defense Forces spokesperson said.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was not shot down, according to the IDF spokesperson who said it crashed due to a technical malfunction.

According to the Beirut-based Al-Manar television network linked to the Hezbollah terror organization, the MK-type drone is being held by the Lebanese army.

ISIS Prompts Hezbollah’s ‘Great Need to Remain in Syria’

Monday, September 15th, 2014

The presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group has created a “great need” for guerrilla fighters from the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror organization to remain in Syria.

That was the message from Hezbollah executive council deputy head Nabil Qaouk, who spoke Monday at a ceremony in the southern Lebanese village of Aita Shaab.

Qaouk was quoted by The Daily Star newspaper in Lebanon as saying that Hezbollah and the Amal Movement had “succeeded in defusing sectarian tensions” following the beheading of soldiers by ISIS last week. He said the murders had “disappointed the radical group.”

Quaouk said, “There could never be a war of words between ISIS and us, but there is the field where we will defeat them. We will not engage in a war of statements or political disputes.

“Day after day, it is becoming clear to Lebanon, the Arab, Muslim and international communities that there is a great need for Hezbollah to remain in Syria. The current situation today imposes on Hezbollah to stay in Syria more than any other time.”

Last month there were five days of clashes between the Lebanese Army and terrorists from ISIS and Jabhat al Nusra (Al Nusra Front) – two radical Islamist terror groups operating with the rebel factions in Syria.

The fight began with the terrorists attempting to invade the small border town. It ended with a cease-fire, but the rebels still hold at least 22 Lebanese soldiers and police officers taken captive during the battle. ISIS has so far beheaded two soldiers, and Jabhat al Nusra has released seven police officers.

Qaouk called for a national strategy and a broad national solidarity to “tighten the noose on the takfiris (false Muslims) and strengthen the Army so that it can free the soldiers,” he said. “The beheading of soldiers by ISIS was aimed at inciting strife between Sunnis and Shiites but Hezbollah and Amal succeeded in eliminating such strife, not just putting out the blaze,” he said.

ISIS is comprised of extremists who claim to follow Sunni Islam. Hezbollah is comprised of those who observe the Shi’ite branch of Islam. Both groups are committed to wiping out the Jewish State of Israel.

Report: Syrian Air Kill Kills 18 ISIS Terrorists, including One American

Friday, September 5th, 2014

The Syrian Air Force killed 18 ISIS jihadists, including one American, in a bombing raid in the eastern part of the country on Thursday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The report cannot be verified because of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad’ official ban on foreign journalists. The Observatory has been a prime source for news of the civil war and often, but nor always, is accurate.

Ina separate report, Turkey said its security forces have arrested 19 people affiliated with the Islamic State, or ISIS, near the border with Syria.

The reported bombing raid targeted a building that ISIS used as its headquarters. Another bombing raid near Iraq also killed ISIS members, Reuters reported.

ISIS controls at least one province in northern Syria and has seized large parts of another province with rich oil reserves. It has perfected the strategy of Hezbollah and Hamas and provides basic needs of life, including water and electricity, for local residents.

“Let us be honest, they are doing massive institutional work. It is impressive,” one activist who fled from the areas told Reuters.

The news agency noted that even if President Barack Obama sends the U.S. Air Force to bomb ISIS terrorists, the Islamic State is too entrenched in daily to be eliminated.

That may help explain why Israel did try to eliminate Hamas in Gaza, just as it could not destroy Hezbollah in southern Lebanon in the war in the summer of 2006.

Once terrorists are allowed to replace a government and has a base of social power, it is too late to use conventional force to destroy it.

Israel has been able to contain Hamas, but the European countries’ permissive immigration policies have left their leaders powerless to stop the racial Islamic movement’s takeover of daily life.

Ex-MK from Zoabi’s Party Jailed for Meeting Terrorist in Syria

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

An Israeli court Thursday sentenced former Arab Knesset Member Said Nafa to jail for one year for traveling to Syria, an enemy state, and meeting with Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist party official Talal Naji.

Nafa was placed in the Knesset as a replacement for Azmi Bishara, who not only left the legislature but also fled the country after being indicted for selling information to Hezbollah during the Second Lebanon War in 2006. He visited Syria in 2007, the same year Bishara was indicted.

Nafa accused the Israeli government of conducting a witch hunt and said he really was serving the country faithfully by his diplomatic gesture as a liaison between Druze communities in Syria and Israel.

The former MK claimed he never met Nafa. He also has been accused of meeting with Hamas political commander-in-chief Khaled Mashaal, but the Nazareth District court said there was no evidence to prove the charge.

Next in line for jail could be Balad MK Haneen Zoabi, the high-profile fifth columnist who is under investigation for incitement. “Now it’s Zoabi’s turn,” said Likud MK Miri Regev after Nafa was sentenced.

Foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman commented that the conviction sent an “important message that Israel will not allow subversion against the country by people sitting in the Knesset at the same time they are acting to destroy the country.”

The Balad’s party platform opposes Israel as a Jewish state.

Israel Reiterates Ban Against Flying Flags of Terrorist Groups

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

The attorney general on Wednesday reiterated Israel’s ban on flying the flag of terrorist organizations. It is against the law to fly a flag from the Hezbollah, Hamas or Islamic State terrorist organizations. For that matter, it’s also against the law to fly the flag of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as well.

It’s a practice often seen at rallies and demonstrations held at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City on Fridays and elsewhere when things are heating up and Arab leaders are deliberately agitating to stir up a peaceful crowd into a rioting mob against Israel.

Some slack has been allowed in recent years, however, particularly in cases of flying the flag of the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. The ruling was transmitted in a letter Wednesday by aides in the office of Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to staff members in the Justice Ministry.

In Weinstein’s opinion, “The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was declared a terror organization many years ago and that designation has never been changed. Technically, flying the PLO flag is a crime, as that ws legislated when the PLO was declared a terror group.

“Given the new relationship between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, which represents the PLO, the Attorney General has for many years overlooked the criminal aspects of flying the PLO flag, and no one is persecuted for this anymore,” the letter states.

“With that, there is no overall protection for flying the flag of terror groups, which is still a crime.”

The law against flying the flag of terrorist organizations, the letter states, must still be enforced against other terror groups, including the Islamic State (also known as ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria), Hezbollah and Hamas.

“When such flags and symbols are displayed police must judge whether there is a possibility of public disorder or disturbance, or danger to the public. If there is, police should take steps to remove the flags,” the letter continues.

“In appropriate cases, charges may be made against perpetrators.

“We have recently distributed these instructions to police and security officials and expect them to act in accordance with these principles.”
