The project comes after the government faced heavy criticism over Hamas’s use of tunnels in the 2014 Gaza war, with a state inquiry earlier this year accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and army top brass of having been unprepared for the threat.
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) and Honest Reporting on Monday hosted American journalist Hunter Stuart for a frank discussion on how his perception of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict shifted during his one and half years living in Jerusalem and reporting from the region.
Anti Israel gangs are planning on gathering at the Israeli Consulate in Toronto for a “Day of Rage”. They will be calling for the destruction of Israel.
These Christians have apparently never heard or understood the expression, “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.” Or perhaps they are hoping that Muslims have forgotten it, or will be compelled to set it aside by their gestures of solidarity. Dhimmi Christians have long sided with Muslims against Jews, in the vain hope that they would thereby win some favor with their masters. But Islamic law mandates the subjugation of both Jews and Christians. No expressions of solidarity will ever mitigate that.
Jordanian police want to question the guard and have sealed off the area, but Israel says he has diplomatic immunity.
Israelis and Palestinians braced for further confrontations in Jerusalem as death toll rises in wake of new security crackdown.
In a July 16 interview with Qatar’s Al-Jazeera TV network, Sheikh Kamal Khatib, the deputy head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said that Israel has been injecting chemical substances into the walls of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to cause its corrosion. Sheikh Khatib explained that these substances have a delayed effect, enabling Israel to claim that the cracks and fissures in the mosque structure are the working of nature.
The “Palestinian” territories have a culture of hatred and the glorification of violence, all in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. This is likely another manifestation of the rage that “Palestinian” leaders are exhorting their people to work up over the Israelis’ decision to put metal detectors at the Temple Mount. Resisting jihad terror is portrayed as an unpardonable insult, and more jihad terror ensues.
The State Department is facing harsh criticism for claiming in an official report that Israel is to blame for terrorism attacks committed by Palestinians and accusing the Jewish state of being largely responsible for an impasse in peace negotiations, according to a leading member of Congress who is calling on the State Department to correct its “inaccurate and harmful” characterization of Israel.
Three Israelis were killed and one severely wounded in a stabbing attack in the West Bank town of Halamish on Friday evening.
The Israel Defense Forces reported that an assailant infiltrated a private home in the community of Halamish, also known as Neve Tsuf, north west of Ramallah, and stabbed four Israeli civilians. Three of the victims died as a result of their wounds, and one was evacuated to Shaare Tzedek hospital.
The assailant, whom Channel 2 identified as Palestinian, was shot by a neighbor. Palestinian media have identified the attacker as Omar al Abed, age 20, from the West Bank village of Khobar, near Ramallah. He left an online manifesto before the attack in which he stated that he felt obligated to act in light of recent events
… According to MDA, a 60-year-old man, a 60-year-old woman, and a 40 year-old-man, were killed, and a woman, 60, was injured.
…Hamas has issued a statement of support for the attack, calling it a “necessary reaction” to new Israeli security procedures at the Temple Mount. In a tweet, they called it “heroic.”
The photo at the link is awful, I’m not even putting it up.
Three Palestinians were reported killed and over 200 were wounded in clashes with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem and the West Bank as Palestinian leaders urged a day of protest purportedly against Israel’s decision to put metal detectors at entrances to the Temple Mount.
The three Arab-Israeli gunmen — Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19 — cousins from the village of Umm al Fahm, were caught on cctv entering the Old City of Jerusalem separately through Herod’s Gate. They were accompanied by a fourth accomplice who carried the weapons in a backpack and stashed them in the Al Aqsa Mosque on the morning of the attack.
Friday prayers normally held at hundreds of mosques in Arab towns in Israel were canceled in dozens of locations following pressure from local Muslim leaders to encourage thousands to throng the Temple Mount.
For five consecutive days, Muslim rioters have engaged in violent clashes targeting Israeli security forces in Jerusalem’s Old City near a main entrance to the Temple Mount.
Islamic leaders call for mass protests in response to the new security measures.
Although Europe claims to respect human rights and the rights of peoples, it has been a party to violating the most essential right of the Jewish people: the recognition of its existence for more than 3,000 years, and the anchoring of this existence to its sacred monuments. Worse, Europe does so in the name of a people fictitiously invented less than 50 years ago. No serious scholar can find any trace of a “Palestinian people” before the 1960s. Europe has apparently been all too happy to accept lies.
