  • Putin’s Syrian Dilemma: Back Israel or Iran?

    With perfect timing, and taking advantage of the vacuum left by Obama’s decision not to get involved in Syria, Putin had put Russia back on the geopolitical map. He made a surprise visit to Damascus in December to declare: Mission accomplished. He should have learned from former U.S. President George W. Bush never to say that – because now everything is starting to fall apart for the Russians.

    Saturday, in response to an improvised explosive device (IED) that wounded 4 Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers near the southern part of the Gaza Strip, Israeli Air Force (IAF) fighter jets struck at least 18 Hamas targets throughout Gaza, including weapons manufacturing infrastructure, the IDF said. The Israeli reprisal came after an explosive device detonated near IDF troops adjacent to a security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, earlier on Saturday. The IED was attached to a flag, which was used to mask the explosive device. During the riot, soldiers from the Golani Brigade and the Engineering Corps approached the...

Such cowardly acts will only escalate violence, not build the prosperous society the people of Gaza deserve!” he tweeted. .....

    After a severe three-year drought, the residents of the popular tourist city, Cape Town, were once again told that they would have to further limit their water consumption. According to a recent Reuters article, Cape Town’s more than 4 million residents have been told to cut their daily limits from 87 liters (23 gallons) to 50 liters per person (13.2 gallons). According to the estimates of world experts, residents of South Africa’s second-largest city will run out of drinking water in a matter of weeks. The situation in Cape Town is truly dire. Experts initially calculated “Day Zero,” the date...

    What’s today – Sunday? That’s the day Mahmoud Abbas threatened to cut off all ties with Israel. On Friday, he threatened to cut off all ties with the United States. On Thursday, he threatened to go to the Security Council to have Israel and the United States cut off from the United Nations. On Wednesday, he threatened to go before the ICC, International Criminal Court to have everybody cut off and arrested. On Tuesday, through his propaganda minister Saeb Erekat who told her to “shut up,” Abbas threatened to cut off all ties with Nikki Haley. On Monday, he threatened...

    On a reporting trip to Gaza, Amman, and Damascus in 1994, I made a habit of asking Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood leaders whom I met the following question: Did they think the Jews had a plan to dominate the world? I’ll never forget the enthusiastic answer of a pediatrician named Abdelaziz Rantissi, a Hamas leader, whom I met in his doctor’s office in Gaza. “Yes, indeed,” he said. “I have a copy right here.” And he pulled down from a shelf an Arabic-language copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It was a response I heard again and...

    Former IDF Southern Command Commander Yom Tov Samia rejected the claims that Israel has placed a siege on Gaza. In an interview with Channel 10's "Orly and Guy" program, Samia acknowledged that the situation in Gaza is critical, but said that the area's Hamas leadership are responsible. Hamas receives 650 truckloads of equipment a day, but instead of giving these to the residents, Hamas uses the merchandise for itself, selling it at outrageous prices or using the materials in order to dig terror tunnels. The Hamas terror organization which rules Gaza has firmly rejected the Palestinian Authority's (PA) demand that...

Imad al-Alami, 62, was “examining his personal weapon in his home” on Jan. 9 when the gun went off and a bullet struck him in the face, Hamas said. He had been hospitalized in Gaza until his death, according to the Jerusalem Post.

    A senior member of the Hamas terrorist organization has died, a Hamas spokesman said Tuesday, three weeks after he suffered what the terror organization claimed was an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head. On January 9th, Fawzy Barhoum, spokesman for the Gaza-based Islamist terror group, said that Imad al-Alami, one of the movement’s most senior officials, was critically wounded when his personal firearm accidentally discharged. Al-Alami, 61, was "inspecting his personal weapon in his home and is in critical condition,” Barhoum said at the time. The Hamas leader was rushed to a Gaza City hospital. On Tuesday, Hamas spokesman...

    Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress. Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the...

    ..... ....Yes, contrary to what one might expect, the Government of Israel wanted continued U.S. payments to UNRWA, fearing that their termination might cause a new intifada, the collapse of the Palestinian Authority, or renewed warfare with Hamas. Also, Jerusalem sees UNRWA as a lesser evil than alternative recipients of the money, such as the PA. ..... And even if no one replaced U.S. donations, denying UNRWA money does not get to the heart of the problem, which lies not in its sponsored activities but in its perpetuating and expanding population of "Palestine refugees" in three unique, even bizarre ways:...

    The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday said it had destroyed a border-crossing Hamas attack tunnel, the third in recent months, that penetrated hundreds of meters into both Israeli and Egyptian territory from the Gaza Strip, in an airstrike on Saturday night. “We completed the destruction of a third terror tunnel,” spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters early Sunday morning, denying claims made by Hamas that it was a smuggling tunnel. The tunnel, which was constructed differently from most tunnels in Gaza, began in the city of Rafah and crossed into Israel under the Kerem Shalom Crossing, through which hundreds...

    TEL AVIV — The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which ministers to so-called Palestinian refugees, would not comment when asked by Breitbart Jerusalem to provide the total number of Palestinian “refugees” that UNRWA services in Lebanon. This after Lebanon’s census data recently placed the number of Palestinian “refugees” living in the country at about one third of the nearly 500,000 reported by UNRWA. UNRWA runs camps and projects for so-called Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. On its website UNRWA claims “5.1 million refugees” are “covered by our protection mandate,” purportedly including about 500,000...

    One of the Hamas terrorist organization’s most senior members is in critical condition Tuesday, after he apparently shot himself in the head in an accidental shooting. Fawzy Barhoum, spokesman for the Gaza-based Islamist terror group, said Tuesday afternoon that Imad al-Alami, one of the movement’s most senior officials, was critically wounded when his personal firearm accidentally discharged. Al-Alami, 61, was "inspecting his personal weapon in his home and is in critical condition,” said Barhoum. The Hamas leader was evacuated to a Gaza City hospital. Outlawed by the US in 2003 for his position in Hamas, al-Alami is considered one of...

    Humanities professors say organization evading moral, professional duties Dozens of humanities scholars cancelled their membership with their field's leading professional academic organization ahead of its annual convention, in retaliation for the group refusing to impose boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel. The defecting professors wrote to the Modern Language Association—published in the days leading up to the conference being held this week in New York City—that they will not be renewing their membership, due to the organization "disgracefully" voting in June against BDS and in favor of a statement denouncing academic boycotts. Timothy Reiss, a professor emeritus of comparative literature...

    The extremist Islamic State group’s branch in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has taken a simmering dispute with the Palestinian Hamas group based in nearby Gaza to new levels, releasing a 22-minute video in which it calls on its followers to attack the group and shows the execution of a man it said was a collaborator. Analysts say the escalation has the potential to destabilize an already fragile security situation in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas has controlled for the past decade.
