  • Uproar in Israel as PA appeals to The Hague

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 22/5/18 | Nitzan Keidar
    Israel condemned PA efforts to have Israeli political and military officials prosecuted in the International Criminal Court in The Hague for “war crimes” against rioters on the Gaza border. The Foreign Ministry said that the PA appeal to The Hague was “a cynical move that is not legally valid. The PA continues to abuse the tribunal for political purposes rather than to promote political negotiations.” "It is ridiculous that the Palestinians do this while they continue to incite to terror and use children and women as human shields to cover their violent attempts to harm the security of Israeli citizens."...

    Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas was rushed to a Ramallah hospital Sunday, after he complained of chest pains and a high fever. Abbas, 82, was hospitalized last week for a “minor surgery”, the PA’s mouthpiece WAFA reported last week. On Sunday, Abbas was rushed to a Ramallah hospital for treatment of “pneumonia and fever” a source close to the PA chief said, Yediot Ahronot reported. According to a source which spoke with AFP, the PA leader also suffered from chest pains. .....

    President Mahmoud Abbas was hospitalized with fever Sunday just days after undergoing surgery on his ear, an official said. The 83-year-old Abbas has endured a series of recent health scares which have revived anxiety over who will succeed him. A senior Abbas aide, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol, said the Palestinian leader was diagnosed with a fever on Sunday. Abbas had an ear operation last week, and returned to the hospital late Saturday for a follow-up. Saed Sarahneh, of Istishari Arab hospital, said late Sunday that “all tests are normal and his condition is reassuring.” He...
  • Ted Cruz rips New York Times for acting as 'propaganda arm' for Hamas

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/17/2018 | by Katelyn Caralle
    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, charged on the Senate floor Thursday that the New York Times and other media outlets have been acting as a propaganda arm for Hamas by writing that Israeli troops were killing innocent Palestinians at a protest, and downplaying the fact that many were violent and threatening to kill Israelis. “We can count on global media elites acting as little more than propaganda arms, for Hamas and other terrorists, and no week has that been more evident than this week,” Cruz said. “The media has been more than happy to oblige Hamas’ propaganda needs. Reporters, celebrity talking...
  • Alan Dershowitz: Why Does the Media Keep Encouraging Hamas Violence?

    If this were the first time that Hamas deliberately provoked Israel into self-defense actions that resulted in the unintended deaths of Gaza civilians, the media could be excused for playing into the hands of Hamas. The most recent Hamas provocations — having 40,000 Gazans try to tear down the border fence and enter Israel with Molotov cocktails and other improvised weapons — are part of a repeated Hamas tactic that I have called the “dead baby strategy.” Hamas’ goal is to have Israel kill as many Gazans as possible so that the headlines always begin, and often end, with the...

    The seed that grew into Gaza’s Great Return March was planted Dec. 9, just a few days after President Trump announced he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Palestinians long have held onto the dream of Jerusalem as our own capital, or at least as a shared capital in a country that offers equal rights to everyone. --SNIP-- It was not a surprise that Israel responded to our march with deadly violence. But I had not expected this level of cruelty. On the other hand, I was heartened by the commitment to nonviolence among most of my own...

    An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) by Israeli drone maker Aeronautics Defense Systems Ltd. is being used by the Israeli military to dump skunk-water on protesters in Gaza, according to a video posted to Twitter by the Israeli Defense Ministry Wednesday. Tens of thousands of Palestinians had been protesting near Gaza’s perimeter fence since March as part of a campaign dubbed the “Great March of Return” which calls for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their lands in Israel. The protests escalated earlier this week ahead of the inauguration of the American Embassy in Jerusalem. Israeli defense forces have...

    Hamas knowing they cannot defeat the IDF by military means, this has been Hamas’s long-term strategy:... to cause international outrage aimed at isolating Israel. Hamas has brought these tactics to a new and sickening low in recent weeks, making its 'human shields the actual weapons of war', with inevitably bloody consequences. This is the first government in history that has deliberately sought 'to compel its enemy to kill its own people'. I have visited IDF commanders and snipers at the border and observed their actions for myself. They have employed graduated measures, starting with warning Gaza civilians against approaching the...

    The New York Daily News is known for being a bit tabloidy and not exactly a bastion of hard hitting news, but their latest headline is just shameful. Who let this go to print? Good grief. pic.twitter.com/8DbOF2mgUh— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 15, 2018 The nasty headline leaves out that Hamas helped orchestrate Monday's violent protests. The rioters stormed the Gaza-Israeli border, despite being warned, with firebombs and other explosive devices, so IDF confronted them with force of their own. Over 50 individuals were killed and over 2,000 injured in the exchange. Reports reveal that 10 of those killed were members...

    Excuse Hamas. Condemn Trump. That, in a nutshell, was Morning Joe‘s approach to the deaths of Palestinians who rioted during the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem yesterday. First up were Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, painting the Trump family as callously indifferent to the deaths: JOE SCARBOROUGH: Mika, for the rest of the world you actually saw an administration, a White House, and we’ll say it, since Ivanka Trump was there. A family. Completely out of touch with the realities of the region that they’re dealing with. And you know, you had . . . 58 people killed...

    At least three of the 41 Palestinians reportedly killed Monday in clashes ahead of the Jerusalem opening of the U.S. Embassy to Israel were “armed terrorists” caught trying to plant a bomb near the Gaza border fence, Israel's military said. More than 35,000 protesters amassed at a dozen locations, with many engaging in skirmishes .... 41 people so far have been killed in Monday’s violence, and at least 772 have been wounded. The relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv, a key campaign promise of President Trump, has infuriated the Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as a future capital. “Moments...

    Preparations are underway for the grand opening of the new United States embassy to Israel in Jerusalem. While the President won’t be able to attend as he prepares for his summit with North Korea, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have arrived to do the honors along with a number of other delegates. But not everyone is quite so thrilled with this development, particularly in some parts of the European Union. They were preparing to put forward a resolution condemning the embassy move, delivering a statement which was explicitly designed to “embarrass and isolate the Trump administration” ahead of the ceremony....

Israel closed Kerem Shalom, saying it would take weeks or months to repair several million dollars in damages. It was not clear when the delivery of...

    Associated Press ^ | May 13, 2018 6:14 AM | Karin Laub and Mohammed Daraghmeh
    Monday’s opening of the U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem, cheered by Israelis as a historic validation, is seen by Palestinians as an in-your-face affirmation of pro-Israel bias by President Donald Trump and a new blow to dreams of statehood. The festive inauguration helps harden Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ rejection of Washington as a future mediator in the conflict with Israel, likely ushering in a prolonged period of diplomatic vacuum in which other powers are unwilling or unable to step up as brokers. Such paralysis and loss of hope have been major drivers of Palestinian unrest. Underscoring the conflict’s volatility, thousands...

    Palestinian Authority leaders warned Tuesday they will organize mass protests and hold a “Day of Rage” next Monday in protest of the planned relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem’s Arnona neighborhood. According to a report by the PA-mouthpiece WAFA, Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Ahmad Majdalani listed a number of steps the PA is planning in protest of the Trump administration’s decision to move the US embassy to Israel’s capital city. Among the measures under consideration are pursuing bids to have the PA recognized as a sovereign state by more international agencies, “enhancing popular resistance”...

JNS.org – The number of Gaza residents willing to participate in Hamas’ riots along the border fence is dropping, as seen at last Friday’s protest. Hamas is no longer hiding the fact that the demonstrations are not intended to be quiet marches, but violent attempts to carry out attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians, damage the Israeli border fence and military equipment, and burn fields and forests. We can assume that leading up to May 15, on which the Palestinians mark the Nakba (or “Catastrophe”)...
