TEL AVIV – Four Palestinians hurled firebombs and breached the border fence from Gaza into Israel on Saturday morning, the IDF reported.
“Do you know how many hundreds of Jewish American kids are recruited to join the Israeli occupation army?” he asked, adding: “No one has ever established a CVE program to see why normal American kids leave their homes to become part of an army committing war crimes…
“Hamas tell themselves, Instead of having people revolt and turn against us, we’ll send them to the fence and let them revolt there freely.”
The Palestinian Authority claimed on Tuesday Israel was “brutal and calculated” in killing “unarmed” protesters on the Gaza border last week, requesting Israel be brought up on charges in the International Criminal Court.
With the Great March of return having fizzled out after the bloodiest day in Israeli-Palestinian relations since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, another high-casualty conflict or possibly even the breakout of war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza was avoided. Previous flash-points with potential for a serious outbreak of violence were the Temple Mount metal detector crisis of last summer, and the ongoing tense situation in Gaza exacerbated by Israel and the PA’s reduction of electricity to Gaza last summer.
From glorifying martyrdom to incessant programming on state-controlled TV promoting children as combatants, the Palestinian Authority is one of the great child abusers in history.
Now, their latest video, which has appeared numerous times on TV in the last weeks, encourages children to continue the conflict. Instead of promoting a path to peace and a way to embetter their lives, the PA has rolled out propaganda aimed at children to remain “refugees.”
How many Caterpillar D8 bulldozers, lined up side to side, would it take to push the Syrian invaders – I mean Palestinians – and their so called “civilization” into the sea?
During the past 14 years, dozens of lawsuits have been filed in the Israeli judicial system by Arabs who have fled the Palestinian Authority (PA) and were given refuge in Israel. The sheer volume of cases and their remarkable similarity led the Israeli justice system to combine them and hear them as a unified case, heard in Jerusalem District Court, Justice Moshe Drori presiding, in 2017.
In each case, the victims, Palestinian Arabs living in PA-controlled areas, were suspected of collaborating with Israel — a “crime” that can include anything from warning authorities of impending acts of terrorism to selling land to Jews.
This past Monday, the United States at long last opened its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. The opening occurred 70 years to the day that Harry Truman led the United States to be the first nation to recognize Israel as a sovereign nation. The event, authorized and directed by President Trump, was a moving tribute to the enduring and unique friendship between our nation and the State of Israel.
Hamas used Gaza’s citizens as cannon fodder and only stopped when threatened directly. And the response of the international community was … to condemn Israel.
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.
Turkish president tells IOC leaders that Israel must be held accountable for the killing of Palestinians in Gaza Strip.
Two Palestinian Facebook pages and a forum directing rioters in Gaza gave explicit instructions to murder and kidnap Israelis on May 14, the day the US embassy opened in Jerusalem, as well as suggestions on how to accomplish this goal. It is not clear if Hamas itself was the group sending these messages. What is critical is that Gazans were encouraged to bring weapons to the demonstrations and use these weapons to either murder or capture Israelis. Israeli soldiers may have been facing Palestinians who were using the cover of demonstrating civilians to attempt to break through the border with the goal of murdering and kidnapping Israelis.
Israel has the right to defend itself.
It has every right to protect its people and defend its borders against attacking mobs and armed terrorists trying to target and murder Jewish citizens.
But judging from the media coverage of the clashes along Israel’s border – the border that separates Israel from the terrorist-run Gaza Strip – there seems to be an expectation that Israeli forces simply give up and cede ground to the terrorist organizations seeking to destroy them.
You can see why NBC News might want to smear the work of the Gatestone Institute (the dirty work I wrote about here yesterday). Gatestone has postedPierre Rehov’s video Behind the Smoke Screen on Hamas’s Gaza production. From inside Gaza, Rehov reports the reality of the so called “peaceful demonstrations.” He invites viewers: “Watch Hamas hate speeches. See how they build their propaganda at the expense of brainwashed, deceived and manipulated unfortunate people. Understand why Israel has no choice but to protect itself using lethal force.” Like Richard Kemp’s Gatestone column “Smoke & Mirrors” yesterday, Rehov’s video is more informative than the sum total of everything NBC News has on offer today.
