Hamas Considering 5-Year Truce for Floating Seaport

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Hamas is apparently feeling the pressure from all sides and is now considering options that would allow them to rebuild both their economy and terror infrastructure unhindered.

Arab media reported on Monday evening that Hamas is considering adopting a Qatar ceasefire proposal, with Turkey’s approval, for a 5-year truce with Israel. According to the proposal, Hamas gets an offshore floating seaport for Gaza, in exchange for the ceasefire.

A senior Hamas terrorist, Musa Abu Marzouk, is in Qatar talking with international mediators about the idea.

In March, Abu Marzouk rejected the idea.

The floating seaport would be run by Israel and an unnamed third party, and in exchange there would be a 5-year ceasefire with the option for an extension.

Hamas may be worried about the advances being made by the Salafist ISIS/Gaza terror group who are making Hamas look bad internally, as well as the self-imposed poor economic condition resulting from Gaza not giving up on terrorism. Israel also holds Hamas accountable for all the breakaway terror group within Gaza.

While Hamas is considering the Qatar deal that Turkey approves, there’s no indication that Israel has any part of it.

ISIS Tweets Home Address of Pamela Geller

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

A tweet from a man in Britain believed to be a senior member of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted the home address of anti-radical Islam activist Pamela Geller, who is Jewish. The Jewish Press.com is not re-posting the information even though we have no ISIS readers, as far as we know.

She was targeted for beheading in a plot that was smashed two weeks ago when Boston policemen arrested two men who had planned to decapitate her but then decided to make policemen their first victims because they were “easier targets.”

The Twitter account “#GoForth,” from which the tweet was sent and which now has been suspended revealed Geller’s address and apartment number in New York City.

Geller rose to be U.S. Public Enemy No. 1 for the ISIS after she staged a contest in Texas in May for drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

She may soon have company in the form of New Hampshire resident and ex-marine Jerry DeLemus, who plans another “draw Mohammed” event in August.

He said last week:

I’m not worried about taking a risk. It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.

DeLemus told Maine’s WMTW:

I guarantee if there weren’t Muslims actually in this country actively trying to kill people for drawing pictures of Mohammad, I’d never have an art contest to draw Muhammad.

I’m not forcing anyone to come. That’s Sharia law. I’m sure they’ll know with the news media coverage there’s a risk involved.

He declared that he won’t allow offensive drawing and added:

It’s a political statement that we’re America, we’re free. And we can do things that offend one another.

As a Christian, they do all kinds of ugly things about my faith. But I’ve never wanted to kill someone about it. So I’m hoping it comes out peaceful. But I just want the dialog to be had.

Plenty of security will be on hand, and Geller now walks around with personal bodyguards because of death threats.

One of the suspects in the plot to behead Geller was killed when he pulled out an 8-inch military knife as he approached policemen who were preparing to arrest him for questioning.

Two others were charged on Friday for the plot. David Wright was arrested shortly after his co-conspirator Usaamah Rahim was killed, and the third suspect is Nicholas Rovinski, who was arrested on Thursday. He also goes under the name Amriki aka Nuh al Andalusi.

“Beginning at a date unknown but no later than May 2015, Wright, Rovinski and Rahim conspired to commit attacks and kill persons inside the United States, which they believed would support ISIL’s objectives,” according to a Dept. of Justice statement.

Rovinski and Wright face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years for conspiring to support the Islamic State.

France Prosecuting 15 Suspected Jihadis for Targeting Jews

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

The government of France began its prosecution of 15 suspected terrorists on Monday for planning to carry out jihad (Islamic holy war) attacks against Jews in Paris. France ratcheted up its response to radical Islamic threats and rising anti-Semitism after an exceptionally bloody week of terror this January.

The radical Islamic group to which the accused operatives belong is called Forsane Alizza, or “Knights of Pride.” It was dismantled shortly after the 2012 week-long murder spree in Toulouse by Al Qaeda-linked terrorist Mohamed Merah, who attacked a Jewish day school. Merah murdered a rabbi and three children, as well as several soldiers.

The leader of the group, Mohamed Achamlane, one of those whose trial began this week, was arrested in the western city of Nantes. He and the others are charged with intent to carry out terrorist acts. However, two of the 15 were not present in the courtroom; one was a minor to be tried in juvenile court.

The group’s Internet site “called for an Islamic caliphate in France, the application of Shari’a (ed: Islamic law) and incited Muslims to unite to prepare for civil war,” said Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins at the time of their arrest. Forsane Alizza members received religious indoctrination and physical training in parks and forests around Paris, Molins charged, “in order to take part in a jihad.”

Multiple kosher groceries and the offices of French satiric magazine Charlie Hebdo were listed in a Forsane Alizza computer file named “targets.” Several were, in fact, attacked this past January in a united Al Qaeda-ISIS operation that left 20 people dead, including the three terrorists in the cell.

However, in a letter from his jail cell Achamlane denied having anything to do with the attacks, according to court documents.

Freedom of Worship on Temple Mount: Gazan Arabs, 190; Jews, 0

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

The score was 190-0 for freedom of worship for Arabs from Gaza and zero for Jews on Friday.

Israel allowed nearly 200 Gazans, all over the age of 60, to pray at the mosque on the Temple Mount, eight months after 500 Arabs from Gaza prayed there for the first time since 2007, according to the Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem.

The last time Israel allowed Jews to pray regularly at the Temple Mount was nearly 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Second Temple, which a growing number of Muslim clerics like to pretend never existed.

Permission for Arabs from Gaza to travel to Jerusalem and pray at the Al Aqsa mosque is part of the last year’s ceasefire between Hamas and Israel that was supposed to end the most recent barrage of missile attacks on Israel.

Hamas again broke the ceasefire on Saturday with rocket launches against Israel but blamed them on rival terrorist groups.

Israel continues to honor its end of the ceasefire and allows Gazans to pray at the Temple Mount mosque, where Hamas banners and even Islamic State (ISIS) banners frequently fly amid sermons that preach jihad against Jews, all in the name of freedom of worship, if you are not Jewish.

 

Iron Dome Protection Returns to Southern Israel

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

The Iron Dome has been returned to southern Israel to protect civilians from Gaza rocket fire.

On Friday, the IDF again deployed arrays of the anti-missile batteries to defend the port city of Ashdod and the western Negev community of Netivot.

The move follows two rounds of attacks launched two weeks in a row. The first week’s rockets were fired by the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organization. One mid-range Grad Katyusha rocket landed in Gan Yavne, slightly east of Ashdod. One teenage girl was hospitalized due to trauma. Retaliation for the attack included air strikes on four targets in Gaza.

This week’s attack, however, was launched by a Salafi Muslim group linked to Al Qaeda or Da’esh (ISIS) – possibly the Army of Islam or Jabhat al Nusra. These groups are now vying for power and hoping to raise tensions between Israel and Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization, according to security sources.

“Even if last night’s shooting at Israel came from errant global jihad groups who wish to challenge Hamas by firing at us, we consider Hamas responsible for what happens in Gaza and we will not tolerate attempts to harm our citizens,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Thursday.

“The IDF views the incident with gravity,” an army spokesperson said in a statement following Wednesday’s attack. “The Hamas terrorist organization is the address and one upon whom the responsibility falls.”

Retaliation against Gaza for the rocket fire came in the form of a muted set of air strikes that took out a few empty terror bases in the enclave.

Hamas Declares Jerusalem ‘Eternal Capital’ of Islamic World

Monday, May 25th, 2015

Hamas has declared that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Islamic world,” the Saudi Arabia-backed Al-Resalah reported.

The terrorist organization that rules Gaza and has cells in Judea and Samaria “warned of the repercussions of Israeli decisions to transfer government ministers to Occupied Jerusalem, dubbing the move a flagrant violation of international resolutions,” according to the website.

Hamas official, Ezzet Resheq wrote:

Jerusalem will remain as intrinsically Palestinian and indivisible as it has always been. It will oust all Judaization schemes.

Hamas has decided to convince its followers that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s recent appointment of government ministers is some kind of unprecedented move, as if the Jews all of a sudden have woken up.

It appears that Hamas is desperate for propaganda to shore up support from the poor Gaza Arabs who suffer under the regime.

Resheq announced that the appointments are “a flagrant violation of international laws and a manifestation of the state of despair and panic overwhelming Israelis and the future of their colonizing entity.”

“There is no doubt that the Israeli occupation will take its last breath sometime soon,” he added.”.But Jerusalem shall forever remain Arabs [sic] and Muslims’ [sic] own property and the eternal capital of the Palestinian independent state and the Islamic nation as a whole.”

Hezbollah Chief is Terrified of ISIS

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah is getting very scared of Islamic State’s advances.

In a speech he gave over the weekend, Nasrallah called on everyone in Lebanon and in the region (presumably excluding Israel) to fight Islamic State.

Nasrallah said Islamic State is as evil as Israel, while claiming that the nations of the region have already beaten Israel and the United States.

Nasrallah said that the US-led coalition cannot protect anyone in Lebanon, Syria or Iraq from Islamic State.

We can only hope that the Islamic State terrorists and the Hezbollah terrorists keep each other very busy for a long time.
