Kites – and also balloons – outfitted with incendiary devices ranging from flaming rags to explosives, are being blamed for scorching more than 6,000 acres of land and causing $2 million in damage after sailing into the Jewish State’s territory from the Gaza Strip.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on the United States Marine Corps to drop two Islamophobic and anti-Arab books from a recommended reading list on its official website.
CAIR asked the Marine Corps to remove any reference to and perceived endorsement of the factually-incorrect and Islamophobic books, “The Truth About Muhammad: The Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion,” by Robert Spencer, and “The Arab Mind,” by Raphael Patai from the Marine Corps University Research Library website’s Military Reading Lists page, which links to the “HQMC Civilian Marine Reading Lists.”
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encountered strong criticism on Thursday over his earlier statement condemning the violence on the Israel-Gaza Strip border that excluded any mention of Hamas’ role in stoking Palestinian attacks.
It’s almost expected now, Justin Trudeau, our Liberal Prime Minister, will side with terrorists if given the choice. He did last week when he was asked about a returning ISIS fighter bragging about killing someone and Trudeau called the question divisive.
Conservative author and radio host Mark Levin blasted the mainstream media’s coverage surrounding Israel’s response to the Palestinians’ violent protests following the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. The media, Levin said, “have blood on their hands” for continuing to fall for the tactics of Hamas, who use human shields as props for the cameras so the press will unfairly blame the Israeli government for the violence.
A Twitter spokesperson defended Hamas’ ability to maintain a presence on the site, despite Twitter’s rule against supporting and perpetuating violence. According to the spokesperson, the group’s alleged commitment to peace and status as a democratically-elected organization exempts Hamas from the explicit rule banning terrorist organizations from the platform.
Six Hamas militants were killed and three injured on Saturday evening in a mysterious explosion at a house in the town of Zawayda in the central Gaza Strip. A statement from the Palestinian Islamist group’s armed wing called the incident a “deplorable Zionist crime” perpetrated against its fighters.
Gaza’s ruling Hamas militant group has said that a man who was gunned down in Malaysia on Saturday was a key member of the organisation, raising suspicions that Israel was behind the killing.
Hamas said Palestinian engineer Fadi al-Batsh was a “loyal” member and a “scientist of Palestine’s youth scholars”. It gave no further details on his scientific accomplishments but said he had made important contributions and participated in international forums in the field of energy.
The funeral service by the Islamic movement’s militant wing suggested al-Batsh was one of its military commanders. At a mourning house in the Gaza Strip, a banner described al-Batsh as a member of the military wing.
Gunmen shoot dead Palestinian lecturer in Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Two unidentified men shot dead a Palestinian man in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, Malaysian and Palestinian authorities reported, and Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister said the suspects were believed to be linked to a foreign intelligence service.
When contacted later by Reuters, Mazlan declined to comment on reports that the victim was a member of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas or had been targeted by hitmen.
The threats by the PIJ Terror organization to shoot at IDF officers by snipers from Gaza, constitutes crossing a red line.
Hamas must know that any attack on IDF commanders at the border to Gaza will immediately lead to a renewal of targeted killings of the Hamas leadership.
Media coverage of the riots has been excessive, biased, misleading and outright false. In its eagerness to portray Israel in a negative light, the press has largely ignored a story they should be covering: The power struggle between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the terror group Hamas.
