Israel Assassinates Head of Hamas Military, Ahmed Jabri

Israeli strike kills Hamas leader in Gaza
November 14, 2012

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The head of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip, Ahmed Jabri, was killed by an Israeli missile.

Jabri and a passenger were killed late Wednesday afternoon when the car in which they were driving in Gaza was hit in what Israeli military officials called a “surgical strike.” The passenger was Jabri’s son, according to Yediot Achronot, though it was not confirmed by other sources.

Jabri was directly responsible for carrying out terrorist attacks against Israel for the past several years, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

“The purpose of this operation was to severely impair the command and control chain of the Hamas leadership, as well as its terrorist infrastructure,” the statement said. “This was a surgical operation in cooperation with the Israeli Security Agency that was implemented on the basis of concrete intelligence and using advanced capabilities.”

Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz al-Dinn Al-Qassam Brigades, reportedly said in a statement following the attack, “The occupation has opened the gates of hell on itself.”

The strike came after four days of rocket fire from Gaza terrorist groups on southern Israel. More than 150 rockets are reported to have been fired from Gaza, causing damage to homes and factories.

Jabri was filmed escorting captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was held hostage in Gaza for more than five years, when he was handed over to Egypt last year on his way back to Israel from Gaza.

“Palestinian Authority” Declares Thursday a Day of Celebration for Dead Mass Murderers and Terrorists

PA to honor suicide bombers, terrorists
By KHALED ABU TOAMEH
05/30/2012 – Jerusalem Post

IDF will deliver bodies to representatives of PA, which will hold a national rally in honor of “martyrs.”

The Palestinian Authority leadership is planning to honor the remains of Palestinian suicide bombers and terrorists with full military services in Ramallah.

The IDF will deliver the bodies to representatives of the PA on Thursday, PA Minister for Prisoners Affairs, Issa Qaraqi, said.

He said that the PA would hold a “national rally” in the Mukata presidential compound in Ramallah in honor of the “martyrs.” The rally will be attended by PA president Mahmoud Abbas, PLO leaders and families of the Palestinians who were killed in suicide bombings and other terror attacks over the past three decades.

Qaraqi said that after the ceremony the bodies will be sent to their hometowns, where each one will be buried in a military funeral.

He said that 17 bodies whose hometowns were unknown will be buried in a Ramallah cemetery, also in full military funerals.

Another 12 bodies will be transferred for burial in the Gaza Strip, the minister added.

Qaraqi called on Palestinians to consider Thursday a day of celebration for the return of the “martyrs” to their families.

The repatriation of the bodies is part of a goodwill gesture to Abbas.

The list of names includes several suicide bombers who carried out the attacks at Cafe Hillel and the no. 2 bus in Jerusalem.

Israel will also hand over the remains of Hassan Sarahneh, who blew himself up at a hitchhiking post in Ashkelon in 1996, killing a female soldier.

Israel will also transfer the remains of Nasim Ja’bari and Ahmed Qawassmeh, the two suicide bombers who killed 16 people on two buses in Beersheba in 2004.

The list also includes Abdullah Badran, a suicide bomber who killed four Israelis at Tel Aviv’s Stage nightclub in 2005, Hiba Daraghmeh, the female suicide bomber who blew herself up at a mall in Afula in 2003, killing three people, Hassan Abu Said, the Islamic Jihad terrorist who blew himself up at an open-air market in Hadera in 2005, killing five people and Labib Azzam, who in 1995 murdered five Israelis and injured 23 others in Ramat Gan.

In addition, Israel will hand over the remains of the terrorists who carried out the Savoy Hotel attack in 1975, killing eight hostages.

“Palestinian” Sentenced to Death for Selling Home to Eeeevil Jooooos

23 April, 2012

Apparently, the Nazis were never completely defeated, they just their moved operations to “Palestine”:

Palestinian Sentenced to Death for Selling a Home to Jews
By DANIEL HALPER – The Weekly Standard

Former Palestinian intelligence official Muhammad Abu Shahala has reportedly been sentenced to death by the Palestinian Authority for selling a Hebron home to Jews. In response, Jewish officials from the community in Hebron are calling for international officials now to get involved—in order to save Abu Shahala’s life.

“According to various news agencies, Mr. Muhammad Abu Shahala, a former intelligence agent for the Palestinian Authority, has been sentenced to death, following a hurried trial. His crime: selling property to Jews in Hebron,” David Wilder and Noam Arnon, of the Jewish community in Hebron, write in a letter addressed to Ban Ki-moon, Hillary Clinton, Benjamin Netanyahu, and other high ranking officials.

Mr. Abu Shahala reportedly confessed following torture sessions at the hands of his captors.  The death sentence can be executed only following concurrence by Mahmoud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, president of the PA. After he signs the death warrant, Abu Shahala may be killed.

It is appalling to think that property sales should be defined as a ‘capital crime’ punishable by death.  The very fact that such a ‘law’ exists within the framework of the PA legal system points to a barbaric and perverse type of justice, reminiscent of practices implemented during the dark ages.

It is incumbent upon the entire international community, which views Abu Mazen and the Palestinian Authority as a viable Middle East peace partner, to publicly reject such acts of legal murder, when the ‘crime’ is nothing more than property sales. What would be the reaction to a law in the United States, England, France, or Switzerland, forbidding property sales to Jews?

The letter goes on to note the similarity between this law and Nazi-era Nuremberg laws. The authors ask, “Is the Palestinians Authority a reincarnation of the Third Reich?”

According to columnist Caroline Glick, this law has long been a part of the Palestinian Authority: “The PA was established in May 1994. The first law it adopted defined selling land to Jews as a capital offense. Shortly thereafter scores of Arab land sellers began turning up dead in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria in both judicial and extrajudicial killings.”

Finally, the Hebron Jews urge action. “We appeal to all international leaders to demand the annulment of the death warrant and pending execution of Muhammad Abu Shahala, to be followed by his immediate release from imprisonment, for he has committed no crime.”

Finally???  What an odd choice of a word, here.  It’s not like the Israelis have been mum on this issue ever since  1997  when Yasser Arafat enacted the death penalty for selling homes to Jews.  No, I think it’s more of a case where the sympathizers for Islamic Squatters  were fine with it as long as it would keep the Jews from buying houses.  Finally Now, the Israelis have turned the tables and shown how it is the Islamic Squatters who are suffering death and dismemberment because of this ridiculous law, not the Jews.   Even a Muzzy lover like Obama can’t argue with that logic! 

State Department Perpetuates Obama’s Refusal to Acknowledge Israel’s Ownership of Jerusalem

27 March, 2012

I guess we’ll just have to wait until after the November elections before the U.S. government can read a map:

State Department Won’t Say Jerusalem Is in Israel
BY: Adam Kredo – March 27, 2012FreeBeacon.com

An official State Department communication has labeled Jerusalem and Israel as separate entities.

In an official press release yesterday, the State Department announced that “Acting Under Secretary Kathleen Stephens Travels to Algeria, Qatar, Jordan, Jerusalem, and Israel.”

Keeping up with its longstanding policy, the State Department refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s official capital—despite a U.S. law stating otherwise. Obama faced criticism on the issue last year, when it was revealed that the White House had scrubbed all references to Jerusalem being part of the Jewish state from a collection of photos on its website.

Obama has also been lambasted by pro-Israel leaders and some on Capitol Hill for capitulating to pressure from the State Department, which has long opposed U.S. law on the matter.

A senior GOP aide condemned the State Department’s recent press release as unsound foreign policy.

“Once again, President Obama’s administration reminds Jewish voters why he cannot be trusted when it comes to Israel’s security,” said the source. “He doesn’t think Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Is it its own sovereign nation?”

The GOP source also chided Obama for continuing to buck U.S. law on the issue.

“Under U.S. law, Jerusalem is recognized as the undivided capital of Israel—period,” said the adviser. “Unlike the U.S. embassy’s move, that fact is not subject to any waiver or exception. So the question really is, why is Barack Obama ignoring U.S. law and refusing to recognize Israel’s capital?”

Freed in Unwise 1027:1 Prisoner Swap, Islamic Squatter Tells Children to Blow Themselves Up for Allah

“Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” – Golda Meir

Nope, I don’t think peace will be coming anytime soon:

Freed would-be suicide bomber tells kids to be like her
By REUTERS
Gaza woman defies warnings not to return to terrorism, says “we will pursue our struggle and Netanyahu knows that.”

GAZA – A would-be Palestinian suicide bomber freed by Israel in the prisoner swap for soldier Gilad Schalit told cheering schoolchildren in the Gaza Strip the day after her release on Wednesday she hoped they would follow her example.

“I hope you will walk the same path we took and [Allah] willing, we will see some of you as martyrs,” Wafa al-Biss told dozens of children who came to her home in the northern Gaza Strip.

Biss was traveling to Beersheba’s Soroka hospital for medical treatment in 2005 when Israeli soldiers at the Erez border crossing noticed she was walking strangely. They found 10 kilograms (22 lbs) of explosives had been sewn into her underwear.

A member of al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades, an offshoot of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, Biss was sentenced to a 12-year term for planning to blow herself up.

After she spoke, the children cheered and waved Palestinian flags and chanted: “We will give souls and blood to redeem the prisoners. We will give souls and blood for you, Palestine.”

Biss said she had planned to blow herself up at the checkpoint but her detonator malfunctioned.

IDF strikes Gaza in response to attacks; 6 reported dead
By YAAKOV KATZ, REUTERS AND JPOST.COM
08/18/2011 – JPost

Joint IDF, Shin Bet operation hits Rafah after triple terrorist attacks near Eilat kill 7; chief of terrorist faction PRC killed in airstrike.

The IDF attacked terror targets in Rafah in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, in response to a three-stage terrorist attack which killed seven Israelis and wounded dozens in the South earlier in the day.

Six Palestinians were killed in the joint IDF and Shin Bet strike.

Among those killed was the chief of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Kamal al-Nairab. The five others that were killed were also members of the terrorist faction .

Security sources said that the PRC was behind Thursday’s triple attack near Eilat. They added that the operatives had crossed from the Gaza Strip into Egypt and then into Isreal this morning to carry out the attack.

Israel had received intel on the possibility of an attack. For that reason, Israeli special forces, including the elite counter-terror forces, were already stationed in the area.

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said in a press conference just after the airstrike was reported, that the IDF had begun responding in Gaza in the area “where we believe the planners of the attack are based.”

IDF forces were still searching the area around Eilat and the Egyptian border out of concern that there may be terrorists still in the area. Sources said that it is possible that there were as many 20 terrorist in the area, both in Israel and on the Egyptian side of the border.

They added that there may be another terrorist cell hiding in the area. IDF and special police counter-terrorist forces killed seven terrorists during the three coordinated attacks.

Both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Miniater Ehud Barak had earlier said that Israel would strike back at the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza in response to the attacks.

Islamic Squatters Plan to Rush Israel’s Borders After Friday Prayers

20 May, 2011

Just a quick heads-up for everyone:

Palestinian Facebook group urges rushing of Israel’s borders

New pro-Palestinian group on social media site urges Arabs to march on Israel’s borders following coming Friday’s prayers

Roee Nahmias
YNet – Israel News

Pro-Palestinian activists have formed a new Facebook group calling for mass marches on Israel’s borders this coming Friday.

The group – “Third Palestinian Intifada” – urges Arab activists in neighboring countries to storm Israel’s borders in reaction to the recent “Nakba Day” events and ensuing casualties.

Several Facebook groups urge a third mass popular uprising against Israel, and one of them sports a “Friday of response” page, bearing the date May 20. The page, which currently has 100,000 “Like’s”, does not however give any details on how or exactly when these marches should take place.

Still, various reports in the Arab media, including in al-Jazeera, suggest that activists in Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon plan to march on the Israel’s borders; and that Palestinians from Gaza Strip and the West Bank are also expected to stage such marches.

For U.S. Officials, Acknowledging Islam’s Role In Terrorism Is A Bridge Too Far

16 March, 2011

Andrew McCarthy nails it:

Why They Celebrate Murdering Children
Islam is as Islam does.

Andrew McCarthy – NRO

Do you think the State Department noticed that no one in Arizona, Mexico, or even Mars took to the streets to celebrate the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords? No one seemed to think it was a “natural” act — the Islamic term du jour to rationalize the throat-slitting massacre of a sleeping Jewish family: 36-year-old Udi Fogel, his 35-year-old wife, Ruth, and, yes, their three children: 11-year-old Yoav, 4-year-old Elad, and Hadas, their 3-month-old baby.

There had been about a week between this most hideous Muslim barbarity and . . . well, the last hideous Muslim barbarity. On that one, the Obama administration could not bring itself to label as “terrorism” a Kosovar jihadist’s gory attack on American airmen in Germany.

Arid Uka had opened fire in a sneak attack at the Frankfurt airport, killing two and seriously wounding two others while screaming the obligatory “Allahu Akbar!” Wasn’t that a terrorist attack? Gee whiz, you know, the State Department’s chief spokesman just couldn’t say. After all, in P. J. Crowley’s mindless yet seemingly inevitable comparison, “was the shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords a terrorist attack?”

Muslims are frequently found carrying out the Koranic directive to “strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.” Actually, make that the Koranic theme, so often is it reiterated in the scriptures devout Muslims take to be the verbatim commands of Allah. (See, e.g., Suras 3:151, 8:12–13, 8:60, 9:5, 33:25–27, 59:2–4, 59:13.) And that is beside the hadith, scriptures in which Mohammed, taken to be the perfect Muslim role model, boasts, “I have been made victorious with terror.” (Bukhari 4.52.220 — just scroll down from here, through the glories promised to Muslims who wage jihad against the infidels.)

Muslims, in fact, are more often exhorted by their scriptures to brutalize non-Muslims than Christians are urged by the gospels to love their enemies and turn the other cheek. Yet, though we assume the latter are meant to take the message to heart, we are somehow sure Islam doesn’t really mean what it says — that when Muslims strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, it must be Israel’s fault, or America’s, or something, anything, other than Islam, the only common denominator in these attacks.

For U.S. officials, it is a bridge too far to acknowledge the welter of doctrinal grounding that supports these atrocities. Sort the deranged likes of Jared Loughner from the ideologically driven adherents of Islam? Observe the chasm between mentally disturbed killers and mentally conditioned killers? No way.

Nuclear Scientist Assassinated in Tehran

Looks like Israel is taking care of the business that a pusillanimous Obama (and Bush, for that matter) should have taken care of long ago!

Iranian nuclear scientist killed and another wounded in separate bomb attacks

By Daily Mail Reporter
On 29th November 2010 – DailyMail.co.uk

* Both targeted in Tehran by men riding motorbikes
* Local media blames Israel for assassination attempts

An Iranian nuclear scientist has been killed and another injured in separate attacks in Tehran today.

The scientists were targeted in two different locations by men riding motorcycles who attached bombs to their car windows as they drove to work.

One device killed Dr Majid Shahriari, a member of the nuclear engineering faculty at the Tehran University, and wounded his wife.

The second blast seriously wounded nuclear physicist Dr Fereidoun Abbasi. His wife was also injured.

Iran’s nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, said Dr Shahriari was involved in a major project at the country’s chief nuclear agency, though he did not give specifics.

State television swiftly blamed Israel for the attacks.

At least two other Iranian nuclear scientists have been killed in recent years in what Iran has alleged is part of a covert attempt by the West to damage its controversial nuclear program.
