Arab Baby Named “Knife of Jerusalem”

Monday, October 26th, 2015

A baby girl born to Palestinian Arab parents living in the southern Gaza Strip was named “Knife of Jerusalem,” according to the official Fatah Facebook page, as explained by Palestinian Media Watch.

The birth certificate and a picture of baby Knife of Jerusalem was posted on the Fatah Facebook page on Oct. 23, 2015.

Fatah is the party of acting Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas.

AS PMW also noted, a Gazan family named their baby after the murdering terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who stabbed to death two Israelis in Jerusalem’s Old City on Oct. 3.

Matt Lee Points Out US State Department’s Hypocrisy

Monday, October 5th, 2015

It appears the State Department spokesperson didn’t grasp the irony of the State Department’s attack on Israel last year vs. their position this year regarding the accidental US strike on the hospital.

Or as John Kerry said, “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.”

Hamas Doesn’t Discriminate by Age or Gender

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

If there’s one you can’t accuse Hamas of, it’s discrimination.

Whether your a female, or a child, or a female child, Hamas is happy to dress you up in uniform and give you a rifle.

The photo is from a “military” parade on August 21, marking the first anniversary of the killing of Hamas’s terror commanders Mohammed Abu Shammala and Raed al-Attar, in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip.

Egypt Re-Imposes Blockade on Gaza Crossing

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Egypt again has shut down the crossing at the city of Rafah, which straddles the border between Gaza and the northern Sinai, after having re-opened it four days for emergency cases.

Egyptian officials said they prevented nearly 150 Arabs from leaving Gaza for the Sinai on Friday. The crossing has been closed since last October, except for brief periods, as part of the al-Sisi regime’s campaign against Hamas.

Israel also has restricted passage, primarily to bar three Be’er Sheba area-based sisters of Hamas’ de facto Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh from attending their nephew’s wedding because Hamas continues to hold two Israelis as captives.

One of them is a Bedouin from the northern Negev city of Hura, and the second man is Avera Mengistu, who has a mental condition and crossed the security fence in Gaza last year.

Israel has not commented on the Bedouin, but he reportedly has had previous contact with Gaza Arabs and may be involved in crime.

 

Fish Farming May Secure the Egypt-Gaza Border

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

Egypt has come up with a creative way to infuse new life into its battered economy and improve the nutritional base of its population, all while securing its border with Gaza.

Remember that huge, kilometer-long trench that Egyptian security personnel were creating along the Egyptian-Gaza border – 10 meters wide, 20 meters deep – outside of Rafah city?

(This is the trench that cost the Egyptian government a few million dollars in reparation funds to the thousands of local residents whose homes were demolished to make way for the “security buffer zone” that was being created at the time.)

That “trench” may soon be filled with seawater from the Mediterranean, according to sources who spoke with the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency. Engineers are allegedly already preparing the pumps and pipelines for a fish farming project.

The claims could not be confirmed, however, Ma’an said.

Egyptian officials have considered using water in the past to destroy terrorist smuggling tunnels reaching under the border from Gaza.

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization was found to have been supporting the Da’esh (ISIS)-linked Sinai Province terror organization during its recent attacks on Egyptian security personnel. Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood organization.

Humanitarian Aid Trucks Continue to Trundle Into Gaza

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Monday morning saw hundreds of trucks trundling through the Kerem Shalom Crossing from Israel in to Gaza, each carrying tons of humanitarian aid for citizens in the enclave.

Regular daily shipments have continued to flow into the region through the overland crossings from Israel.

On Monday morning, 650 truckloads of material made their way through Kerem Shalom.

A commentator on the Twitter social networking site asked with some irony, “How much from Egypt via Rafah?”
