Kiryat Gat Terrorist Who Stabbed IDF Soldier Was Hamas Member

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

A terrorist who was shot and killed by Israeli police after stabbing an IDF soldier and stealing his gun in Kiryat Gat on Wednesday was a member of Hamas.

The Gaza-based terrorist organization has confirmed that Ahmed al-Jundi was a member of the Hebron branch of the group.

Jundi was a resident of Yatta, a suburb of Hebron.

1 Police Officer Wounded, 5 Arrested in Arab Riot Over Temple Mount

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

A Lod police officer was wounded Wednesday evening after being struck in the head by a stone that was thrown by rioting Arabs.

The attackers were “demonstrating” their anger over the determined enforcement of laws by security personnel permitting visits by Jews to the grounds of the Temple Mount, in which the Al Aqsa mosque is located.

The “demonstration,” held in a central square of the city, quickly turned violent as the “protesters” had planned ahead by bringing their own ammunition (stones, etc.) to the event.

Five of the attackers were arrested by security forces in the central Israeli city, which is located close to Ben Gurion International Airport.

Politically Correct: US Condemns ‘Tragic Stabbings in Jerusalem’

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

The U.S. State Dept. once again has condemned the murders of Jews by Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority Arabs without using the politically incorrect word “terror.”

A statement from Washington declared:

The United States strongly condemns all acts of violence, including the ‎tragic stabbing in the Old City of Jerusalem today that left two victims dead and two injured.

We call for all perpetrators of violence to be swiftly brought to justice.

We are very concerned about mounting tensions in the West Bank and Jerusalem, including the Haram al Sharif/Temple Mount, and call on all sides to take affirmative steps to restore calm and avoid escalating the situation.

IDF Captures Wanted Hamas Fugitive After Firefight in Jenin

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

After a complex military operation overnight that included a firefight lasting into Sunday morning in the Palestinian Arab city of Jenin, IDF soldiers captured a wanted Hamas terror fugitive and his brother.

The operation was carried out in cooperation with Israel’s Security Agency, the Shin Bet.

The IDF military forces were not deterred by the entrenched Hamas operative who had refused Saturday night to comply with a demand to surrender to arresting officers.

The fugitive, Kais a-Sa’adi, had barricaded himself in his home during arrest operations carried out by the IDF’s elite Duvdevan Unit.

Soldiers surrounded the house and fired a missile at the building.

Arab media reported that troops subsequently left the city without arresting the fugitive, but did arrest his brother. However, Israel’s Channel 10 television news reported that two suspects were taken into custody.

An M-16 assault rifle was also discovered, along with several homemade bombs (improvised explosive devices, or IEDs) at the home.

Kerry Drafts Americans in War on ISIS, Offers $5 Million for Information

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

The U.S. State Dept. has posted a $5 million reward to any American who can turn over “information that will disrupt the trade of oil and trafficking of antiquities that benefit the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.”

The press release on the notice from the State Dept.’s Rewards for Justice added:

Today’s announcement marks the first time the U.S. Secretary of State has authorized a Rewards for Justice offer for information that could be used to disrupt sale or trade in oil or antiquities by, or on behalf of, a terrorist organization.

The Obama administration began to take notice of ISIS years ago, but it wasn’t until the beheading of Americans journalist James Foley last year that Americans began realizing the power and growing threat of the criminal and terror organization.

More than one year after the brutal murder of Foley, the first of three Americans who so far have been beheading victims, Kerry unveiled his weapon to defeat ISIS. His boss, President Barack Obama, told the United Nations this week that military force is not enough to overcome the radical Islamist group.

One of the reasons that has been true is that the United States foreign policy experts never really know who is on first in the Middle East. After having helped Hosni Mubarak out of power and into jail and ushering Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi in power and then out of power, U.S. army officers trained and armed “trusted” rebels to fight the Assad regime. The unit graduated from training and promptly turned over the American weapons to Al Qaeda.

Apparently lacking information on ISIS’ illegal trade, Kerry now has drafted Americans into the war, figuring that good citizens will come up with the goods to lead to the disruption of ISIS criminal trade.

The State Dept. announced:

The U.S. Department of State expects this reward offer will encourage individuals to come forward with information regarding persons or entities engaged in the production, facilitation, processing, smuggling, distribution, sale, and trade of oil and antiquities that would benefit ISIL, as well as the information on the smuggling networks, methods, and routes underlying these activities.

While the United States has allowed Syria to create a military base in Syria, right across from the Israeli border, Kerry has let loose his doomsday weapon to help wipe out ISIS.

Naïve is one of the kindest words that can be used to describe American foreign policy, especially in the Middle East, a policy that has left a huge vacuum that Russian President Vladimir Putin is filling to the hilt by taking over Syrian airspace and carrying out aerial attacks.

Putin claims that the only reason Russia is bombing Syria is to attack Islamic State (ISIS) forces. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that official said a Russian bombing raid in Syria on Wednesday targeted an area held by rebel forces that are backed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Iran Claims 4,000 Muslims Killed in Hajj Stampede [video]

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

A Nigerian official told BBC that the death toll in last week’s stampede at the Hajj festival outside Mecca is 1,075 and not 769 as claimed by Saudi Arabia.

Iran claimed that 4,000 Muslims, including 200 Iranians, were killed in the disaster that has embarrassed the kingdom.

The Nigerian official based his report on the number of bodies taken to mortuaries, and officials from other countries also said the death toll was almost 1,100.

The kingdom responded that the higher counts include those who died from together reasons and not in the stampede, but none of the estimates come close to the amount claimed by Iran.

The Islamic Republic has used the stampede as a platform for propaganda against Saudi Arabia, which quietly opposed the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran and which has led a strike force to bomb Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Wednesday called on Islamic countries to form a fact-finding committee, and said:

Saudi government is not complying with its responsibilities to transfer the bodies of those who have been killed (in Mina stampede)….

The slightest disrespect for tens of thousands of Iranian Hajj pilgrims in Mecca and Medina and any lack of responsibility to transfer the bodies will result in Iran’s crushing and violent reaction.

The leader of one of the world’s grossest offenders of human rights added:

The Islamic Republic of Iran doesn’t practice cruelty but it also doesn’t accept anyone’s oppression and cruelty; therefore, it doesn’t trample on the rights of any human beings and nations, either Muslim or non-Muslim, but if anyone wants to trample Iran and its nation’s rights, he/she will receive a strong response.

Below is a video of the aftermath of the stampede. [Warning: graphic scenes not suited for children.]

Muslim-Jewish Coalition Defeats European Attempt to Ban Circumcision

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

European anti-circumcision activists have lost their battle to ban the ritual that is sacred to Jews and is practiced by Muslims although it is not commanded in the Koran.

Several European countries have been campaigning for several years to ban circumcision based on claims that is violent and that it violates “children’s rights.”

The European Council voted against a proposal to ban circumcision, and opponents settled for a decision that requires those performing circumcisions to be experts and to inform parents of possible dangers.

Meretz Knesset Member Issawi Frej, an Israeli with Arab citizenship, joined the Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council, the Conference of European Rabbis, and Islamic groups who argued against the proposal.

He told the European Council that anyone who opposes circumcision should try to convince people through education and not by coercion.
