New Concessions to Hamas: Territorial Water Doubled, Smuggling and Infiltration Made Easier

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Egyptian, Israeli and Hamas officials will meet next Monday in Cairo to discuss the aftermath of the ceasefire agreement, Ma’an reported.

The Office of Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said he was informed by the director of Egyptian intelligence that Israel agreed to allow Gaza fishermen to go six nautical miles off the coast of Gaza instead of three, which has been the limit under Israel’s siege.

“Israel has allowed Palestinian fishermen to fish in Gaza’s waters at a distance of six miles, up from three miles,” Haniyeh’s office said.

Israeli diplomatic sources confirmed that, subject to the understandings reached with Hamas in the ceasefire memoranda, Israel began today, Saturday, to provide relief to the civilian population in the Gaza Strip, and the first such relief came in the form of aiding the Gazan fishing industry by doubling the permitted fishing territory from three to six miles.

In practice this will mean that Israeli naval forces will not be challenging Gazan boats. And Hamas’s deputy politburo chief Mousa Abu Marzook already told AP that Hamas won’t stop making weapons in Gaza or smuggling them in from the outside.

“These weapons protected us and there is no way to stop obtaining and manufacturing them,” he said.

This was to be expected, since the main lesson Israel taught the Arabs last wee was that the only way to get results from it is by killing its innocent civilians.

Israel’s contribution to the Hamas war effort will be the further easing of limits and controls over the Gaza crossings, both into Israel and Egypt.

And, according to Ynet, Gaza residents said on Saturday they are now able to enter an Israeli-enforced buffer zone on the Gaza side of the border with Israel without fear of being fired on. A few years ago, the IDF declared a 300-meter-wide zone closed to Arab movement, in order to prevent terrorists from entering Israel.

But on Saturday, farmer Nidal Abu Dakka said soldiers stood by and watched as he and others moved close to the fence.

What a relief.

The IDF reports is reporting that Gazans hit an IDF jeep that was patrolling along the Gaza border with an anti-tank missile on Saturday night.  The jeep went up in flames. Four IDF soldiers were injured in the attack.

In response, Israel launched either artillery or tank fire at the Zeitun neighborhood in Gaza City.

What Happened at Rachel’s Tomb?

Monday, October 29th, 2012

I read this at the blog, “Occupied Palestine”:

Thousands of Jewish settlers stormed Bilal bin Rabah Mosque, known by Jews as “Rachel’s Tomb” on Sunday night, and performed Talmudic rituals on the anniversary of ”Rachel’s death.

Do you think that’s the truth?

Oops, I just realized sarcasm doesn’t go over the Internet well.

Here‘s the actual story from Arutz Sheva:

About 13,000 people had arrived at the compound from Thursday evening to Friday afternoon. A total of about 70 thousand people are expected by Sunday.

This year the anniversary of the matriarch Rachel’s passing fell on the Sabbath, when observant Jews do not travel. Those marking the anniversary compensated by moving celebrations of her life to the days immediately before and after.

As part of the preparations for the celebrations, volunteers from the Ichud Hatzalah organization, including doctors and paramedics, were deployed starting on Thursday afternoon at Rachel’s Tomb. As of Saturday night they treated 13 people, including three who were evacuated to hospital. Most of the casualties suffered bruises and injuries as a result of the crowding in the area.

The Egged bus company, which had been providing transportation to the compound, could not handle the large number of visitors, and, as can be seen in the following video, on Saturday night tens of thousands of people began marching on foot from Jerusalem’s Gilo neighborhood to the compound.

Bedouin Gunmen Injure 6 in Children’s Park in the Sinai

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Gunmen opened fire in a children’s park in south Sinai on Saturday night, wounding six, officials told the Ma’an news agency.
