2 Islamic Jihad Terrorists Dead in Work Accident

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Two Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed in a “work accident” Sunday.

The two operatives were apparently working on something in a tunnel beneath the streets of Khan Younis in Gaza.

“Last week they lost another man in a tunnel collapse in the same area,” said security analyst Daniel Nisman, co-founder of the Levantine Group in a post on the Twitter social networking site.

The terrorist group said in its announcement the operatives were carrying out an unspecified “jihad operation” in southern Gaza at the time of the incident.

Numerous tunnel operations take place in Khan Younis, not far from where a Hamas operative taught a group of young women on Sunday how to shoot guns at a human target.

Gaza Tunnel Collapses And Another Digger is Gone

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Arab media report at least one man is dead and numerous others are missing in a terrorist tunnel collapse in Gaza.

Salah al-Astal Amid was identified as the man who was buried alive and died in the collapse, according to Arab sources.

It is not yet known how many Hamas operatives were hurt in the collapse, nor why the tunnel caved in on Monday.

A little more than a week ago, an Islamic Jihad terrorist died while helping to dig a tunnel which collapsed on him in Gaza near the Erez Crossing into Israel.

Seven other terrorists were trapped for hours in the collapsed tunnel, but eventually were rescued by fellow Islamic Jihad operatives.

UNESCO to Question Jewish Ties to Western Wall in Arab-Sponsored Draft Resolution

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

United Nations Watch, a Geneva-based watchdog organization, expressed concern today that UNESCO may fuel anti-Jewish incitement and violence, and the increasing PA Arabs’ denial of Jewish religious and cultural rights, by adopting an Arab-sponsored draft resolution that denies Jewish ties to Jerusalem’s Western Wall and Temple Mount.

The Jordanian-Palestinian draft text on the Old City of Jerusalem was submitted to the 21-member World Heritage Committee, which meets over the next 10 days in Istanbul for its 40th annual session.

“This inflammatory resolution risks encouraging the past year’s wave of Arab stabbing and shooting attacks in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel, which began with false claims that Israel was planning to damage holy Muslim shrines,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch.

Under the battle cry of “Al-Aqsa mosque is in danger,” incitement in September by Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad sparked a wave of terror attacks across Israel which began on the Temple Mount and eastern Jerusalem. At least 40 have been killed and more than  500 wounded. The Arab attacks include 155 stabbings, 96 shootings, 45 car ramming attacks, and one bus bombing.

The draft now before UNESCO includes the following problematic language:

  • The draft refers ten times to Al-Haram Al-Sharif, exclusively using the Islamic term for Temple Mount, without any mention that it is the holiest site in Judaism. This is part of a larger campaign at the UN, and particularly in UNESCO, to Islamize sites historically belonging to other faiths.
  • This year’s proposed draft is even more extreme than the resolution adopted in 2015. The new version three times uses the Islamic term Buraq Plaza while placing the parallel name “Western Wall Plaza” in scare quotes, implying skepticism or disbelief concerning what is the most hallowed site for Jewish worshippers over two millennia, due to the ancient wall’s connection to the Holy Jewish Temple destroyed in 70 CE. Last year’s resolution also sought to diminish the Jewish connection by putting the name Western Wall in parentheses after the Islamic term, yet the new use of quotation marks intensifies the denialism that was famously promoted by Yasser Arafat’s negotiator at Camp David, and which continues in Palestinian Authority statements.
  • Israel, which is referred to throughout as “the Occupying Power” in Jerusalem, is called to restore “the historic Status Quo,” with the new word “historic”—a change from last year’s text—implying a reversal of any changes since 1967.
  • Jerusalem’s light rail, which is used daily by thousands of Arab residents among others, is accused of having a “damaging effect” on the “visual integrity” and “authentic character” of the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem—even though the track passes through an existing highway and only facilitates transportation for visitors of all faiths.

The 21 members on the UNESCO world heritage committee are: Angola, Azerbaijan, Burkina Faso, Croatia, Cuba, Finland, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Tunisia, Turkey, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. Good luck to all of us.

IDF Intelligence Chief: If our Enemies Knew What We Can Do They’d Give Up

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

At a session headlined “Israel in a Turbulent Middle East: Strategic Review & Intelligence Assessment” held Wednesday at the 2016 Herzliya Conference, Maj. Gen. Herzl (Herzi) Halevi, Chief of the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate warned Israel’s opponents against initiating a conflict, saying, “I am sure that had Nasrallah or any of our enemies known our military capabilities they wouldn’t risk additional conflict.”

Halevi discussed Israel’s challenges and opportunities in today’s middle east, saying “there are a lot of people who live in the Middle East with no electricity. Looking at the GDP per capita or unemployment rates it is noticeable that very big gaps have formed between us and our neighbors. It should not make us happy – A poor Middle East is a hotbed for terrorist organizations.”

“The Game board in the Middle East has changed,” he added. “Instead of few states, there are now many players. The transition from nation states to organizations is very significant. There are no good and bad guys, and players on the field change their identities.”

Halevi continued to discuss the new ways in which conflicts and wars are formed in the Middle East, in what he calls Dynamics of Escalation’. “We live in an era in which it is most likely for wars to begin even though neither side is interested in it,” he explained.

Regarding Iran, Halevi said: “The nuclear agreement was a great achievement for Iran, allowing them to be accepted among the world’s nations and we believe they will honor [the nuclear deal] for the first few years. At the same time, Iran is investing great efforts against Israel. Iran is supporting the three main threats Israel faces: Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad – in fact, they support 60% of [the threat]. It is [a case of] a Shiite nation giving money to Sunni organizations – they would do that to hurt Israel.”

Regarding Lebanon & Hezbollah, Halevi said, “We have no offensive intentions in Lebanon. We do not want a war but we’re ready for one more than ever. No army has had more intelligence on their enemies as we do about Hezbollah today.”

“The next conflict will not be easy. Hezbollah is suffering heavy casualties in Syria but also experiences significant achievements, and in this process they learn a lot and gain access to new means of combat.”, said Halevi. “Iran is sending weaponry to Hezbollah – some of it gets so Syria, but some of it stays in Lebanon. Syrian industries have resumed the production of weaponry for Hezbollah, and neither the world or Israel should accept it – it could escalate the next conflict.”

Gaza Tots Taught to Wage War Against Israel in Realistic School Plays [video]

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Gaza tots are being taught from the tiniest ages –from three and up — how to wage war against Israel. They are being desensitized to the sounds of war in school plays where they learn to wage war against Israel in realistic-sounding battle scenes.

It’s not a joke, or even a game. It’s very serious business and deliberate, methodical indoctrination of the next generation that begins literally with playground or daycare, and continues straight through the lifespan, via all forms of media, to the grave.

The Da’esh (ISIS or Islamic State) and Hezbollah terrorist groups have been doing this for quite some time as well.

IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner called the latest video of these events “a rare glimpse into Gaza child abuse,” and asked Facebook users to “please share this.”  JewishPress.com asks its readers to do the same, for only through wide dissemination of this information will English-speaking readers learn the truth about what is happening to the children of Gaza.

These events are not being covered at all in the mainstream media abroad for many reasons, perhaps primary among them might be the safety of their journalists whose own lives and those of their families depend upon the capricious whims of Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.

For those journalists who do write about these horrors, their editors either ignore the facts or dismiss them as aberrations.

Few are really aware of the deliberate generational programming that is taking place among the Palestinian Authority Arabs, quietly promoted by Ramallah-based leader Mahmoud Abbas and Gazan Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.

These school-based “war game plays” flow into the summer camp programs when the children learn the more practical aspects of battle: how to properly wield their little weapons, how to sight, aim and fire, the art of camouflage, etc.

Each terrorist group runs its own summer program for children from ages 3 to 21 – by which time, “graduates” have already become fully functioning operatives of the terror group.

Israel Intercepts 4 Tons Ammonium Chloride Smuggled by Hamas to Make Rocket Fuel

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Israeli customs agents in collaboration with Shabak foiled a Hamas attempt to smuggle four tons of ammonium chloride hidden in a shipment of salt before the Passover holiday, Israel announced on Tuesday. Ammonium chloride is used in hair shampoo, in the glue that bonds plywood, and in cleaning products, but as ammonium perchlorate composite propellant (APCP) it is typically used in aerospace propulsion applications, including in building rockets in Gaza intended hit civilian populations inside Israel. According to the announcement, the amount seized could be used to manufacture hundreds of long-range rockets.

About a week before the holiday, a special shipment of 40 tons of salt arrived at the Nitzana crossing which is used for moving goods from Egypt to Israel, the PA and the Gaza Strip.

The unusually large amount of salt being transferred raised a red flag.

A thorough examination by the Nitzana customs agents revealed that some of the bags of salt were actually ammonium chloride weighing 4 tons altogether. Ammonium chloride is a dual-use substance requiring an import license, because of its potential use by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in manufacturing long-range rockets.

Recently, the Shabak has noted a vast increase in salt shipments to Gaza, and soon figured out it was being used to conceal smuggled illegal chemicals. In the reported case, Shabak believes the importer, a Gaza resident, was indeed seeking to provide the chemical to the Hamas, under the guise of merchandise intended for the civilian population and rehabilitation projects.

To date, the collaboration between the customs service and Shabak has led to the thwarting of dozens of smuggling attempts that included shipments of sulfuric acid, diving Suits, polyurethane propellant for rockets, sulfur rods, fiberglass rolls, and a special coal used to fuel iron furnaces for processing metals.

Islamic Jihad Terrorist is Alleged ‘SuperHacker’ Into Israeli Aerial Systems

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

An operative with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist organization has been indicted on a host of charges relating to his ability to hack into military and civilian computer systems.

Known as the “computer administrator” of the PIJ, the suspect was recruited by the terrorist group in 2001 while working as a radio broadcaster. According to a statement released Wednesday by the Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency, the alleged hacker was indicted on charges of “espionage, conspiracy to pass information to an enemy, hacking computer material, and more.”

The suspect also holds the position of chairman in the “Palestinian Talent Society.” He was arrested February 23 while traveling to meet with young candidates from the Palestinian Authority for a television vocalist competition.

He allegedly managed to hack into IDF drones flying over Gaza, according to the charges filed in the indictment. He also allegedly succeeded in accessing the data on unmanned aerial vehicles flown by the IDF over the region. In addition, the hacker allegedly gave the data and footage produced by the cameras on the drones to his handlers.

Moreover, the hacker was allegedly able to access footage from highway cameras inside Israel. Through his ability to access information, the terrorist was able to obtain data on deployment of Israeli security forces and civilian personnel during rocket strikes and wars in Gaza, according to the indictment.

The suspect also allegedly developed an application that compiled data on movement of aircraft at Ben Gurion International Airport. The application is said to have provided data on passenger lists, plane types and weights, and arrival and departures times.
