Israel warns jihadists that they are ‘playing with fire’ if they retaliate for tunnel destruction

Israel has issued a rare public warning to Islamic Jihad that it will be “playing with fire” if it retaliates for the destruction of a tunnel which killed 14 of its members two weeks ago.

An Arabic video was posted by the army’s coordinator of government activities in the territories, Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, containing a direct and blunt warning to the jihadists, the Israeli paper Haaretz reported.

“We’re aware of the plot that Palestinian Islamic Jihad is concocting against Israel,” the video said.

The Iran-Hamas-Hezbollah Connection

The Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, has had enough. Last week, Iran finalized its takeover of Lebanon when Hariri resigned, and reportedly fled to Saudi Arabia.

Hariri, denouncing Hezbollah and its Iranian backers, said he feared for his life. Hariri has good reason to be afraid of Hezbollah, the powerful Shia terror group and Iranian proxy that effectively controls Lebanon.

Indications show that Iran and Hezbollah are also planning to extend their control to the Gaza Strip. Iran already provides Hamas with financial and military aid. It is precisely the support of Iran that has enabled Hamas to hold in power in the Gaza Strip for the past 10 years. It is also thanks to Iran that Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, another major terror group in the Gaza Strip, are in possession of thousands of missiles and rockets. It is Iranian money that allows Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad to continue digging terror tunnels under the border with Israel.

Palestinians: Meet Abbas’s New Partners

Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas leader

As Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas are moving forward towards implementing their “reconciliation” agreement, we are already getting an idea of what this new partnership is going to look like.

Abbas is trying to sell the agreement to the world as a deal that enables him and his Palestinian Authority (PA) to return to the Gaza Strip and assume full control there. He and his PA officials and spokesmen have also been working hard to convince the international community that only good will come out of the “reconciliation” agreement and that Hamas is even headed toward moderation and pragmatism.

However, Abbas and the PA seem to be engaged in yet another bid to deceive and lie to the international community.

UN Launches $65M Legal Pogrom to Hunt Down Israelis and Smear Israel as Criminal State

The United Nations has made a deal with the Palestinians to fund a $65 million legal pogrom directed at Israel. The party on the Palestinian side was referred to as the “Government of the State of Palestine.”

More specifically, the “United Nations System in the occupied Palestinian territory” plans to pay eight UN bodies $64,838,510 between the years of 2018 and 2022 to hunt down individual Israelis and to smear Israel as a criminal state.

Normalizing Anti-Semitism in Student Governments

In the campus war against Israel, the all too familiar refrain from student anti-Israel activists, many of whom form the loose coalition of groups and individuals spearheading the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, is that their quarrel is only with Israel and its government’s policies, not with Jews themselves. But that specious defense continues to fall away, revealing some caustic and base anti-Semitism, representing a seismic shift in the way that Jews are now being indicted not just for supporting Israel, but merely for being Jewish.

This is multiculturalism. This is diversity. This is the poison your government has unleashed.

Militias vs. Palestinian “Reconciliation”

Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas says he does not want to see “militias” in the Gaza Strip if and when the “reconciliation” agreement he reached with Hamas is implemented. “The Palestinian leadership will not accept the model of militias in the Gaza Strip because it isn’t a successful one,” Abbas told the Chinese news agency Xinhua. “There should be one authority, one law and one weapon, with no militias.”

Hamas, for its part, has already rejected Abbas’s demand. Hamas has said it has no intention of disarming despite the “reconciliation” agreement recently signed in Cairo. “We can’t give up our weapons and because the Palestinian people are still in the phase of national liberation,” said Yehya Sinwar, the Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip. “We also can’t and won’t recognize Israel.”

Hamas’s refusal to disarm should come as no surprise.

‘Hurtful to Palestinians’: Albert Hall told to cancel event celebrating UK role in creating Israel

Palestinians in the UK are outraged at plans to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, a colonial-era document that paved the way for the creation of Israel. Festivities include a huge event at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The November 2, 1917 declaration, which supported calls to establish a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine, is a source of great anger and resentment for Palestinians.
